Pork-Packer Is Many Millions

July Wheat. .
BUMPER CROP IS COMING
Manipulator of the Smashed 3Iay
Corner Is Supposed to Have
Hather the Best of
the Situation.
CHICAGO. April ,23. (Special.) Now,
that the si-eat May wheat corner has gone
to smash and all that remains is the some
what costly burying of the corpse, interest
5s turning to the July proposition.
In the last fatal hours of the May deal,
John W. Gates was forced to make terms
"with Armour to minimize the losses. It
is held by close observers that Mr. Gates
is now in a position to make things highly
interesting for Mr. Armour, and drive him
to terms in the July deal.
Armour is long on July just how long
no one but himself knows but within a
week or two he hasrtakea on 10,000,000 or
12,000,000 bushels, at an average price of
S7 cents. The price now hovers around
this figure.
Crop conditions are ideal, and with no
setback a bumper crop will begin to pour
in before the end of July. It is believed
that the supply of wheat will drive the
price to 75 cents, or lower.
Wheat AVill Koll In.
All of the Texas crop and the Kansas"
bard Winter wheat can be put into Chi
cago before the end of July. Other states
in the Southern territory will contribute
largely to the supply, and here is the hook
upon which Gates can hang his proposition
to Mr. Armour to walk up and make
terms.
It is supposed that Gates still has at
least 10,000,000 bushels of May wheat. It
would be better to sell this to Armour at
6 or S7 cents now than to hold it, pay
elevator charges and insurance, and take
chances on a bumper crop and 75 cents or
less inside of 13 weeks. It is held that the
tables have been turned, and Gates is now
in a position to dictate the terms.
Prospects of Great Crop.
Prospects for a great wheat crop were
never brighter. Weather conditions have
been perfect, and dispatches from Ken
tucky and states farther South say the
stand of Winter wheat is superb. In the
state farther North the plant is not far
enough advanced to be in danger of frost.
Floods and hot winds, rust and blight
are always present perils, but the danger
of floods is" not nearly so great as it was
last season. This also eliminates much of
the dancer of rust. things considered,
crop prospects were never better, and the
prospects of the wheat long are corre
spondingly fading.
One feature of the collapsed May corner
that seems to have escaped mention Is
the fact that the public could not break
into the market and take a hand.
It is figured today that the Gates party
must lose at least 55.000,000 on the May
deal. Much of the wheat they hold they
bought at $L15, and much of it will prob
ably be sold at SS cents. It is predicted
that the market -will be petted and ca
joled along softly while small lots are
parceled out as near $1 as can be ob
tained, but the crop prospects are against
high prices, and there is bound to be
heavy loss.
PROVED TS WORTH.
United States Fish Commission's
Good Work.
WASHINGTON, April 23. Special.)
The busy season with the officers and
employes of the United States Fish Com
mission has commenced. Comparatively
speaking, the people generally derive
probably more direct benefit by what
is spent by this commission than for
any other appropriations made by Con
gress. The total expenditures for a
year are considerably under $1,000,000.
and year by year, the rivers, bays and
lakes of the country are being bounti
fully stocked with fish hatched largely
by artificial methods.
Some 20 years ago fishermen and
packers regarded artificial propagation
of fish as a fad and an experiment which
in the end would prove a worthless ex
penditure of money. Time, however,
has vindicated the Government. The
United States Fish Commission became
an established institution and soon old
nd hardy fishermen and packers began
to swear by the Government and Uncle
Sam's propagation scheme.
The average layman who would seek
an evening's diversification by a fishing
expedition also benefited by Uncle Sam's
new philanthropic propaganda. He
'found fish to be more plentiful and con
sequently "bites" more numerous. It is
hardly necessary to add that the Fish
Commission was a good thing in the eyes
f the man who delighted in waiting for
i "nibble." So from a small beginning
oyer 20 years ago when the Government
appropriated only a few thousands dol
lars for the work of propagation and
scientific investigation the Fish Commis
sion has grown Into an institution that
now costs the Government nearly $1,000,
OOf a year to maintain. ,e
V. considerable portion of this money
isused in the support and the construc
tion of new hatcheries and fish culture
stations throughout the country. For
the, reason that the East and middle sec
tloi of the country are pretty well sup
plied with these stations more and more
are! each year erected west of the Mis
souri. Blver. They may be found in
Montana, Washington. Oregon. Colorado,
Calfornia, North Dakota and other
statls. An effort was made last year
by Senator Heyburn to locate one of
thesl stations in Idaho. Due to the
shortness of the session and the great
amount of work demanding the attention
of Ongress, the Senator was unable to
pass this bill for the establishment of a
$25,0 fish culture station in Idaho. That
he wul be successful at the next session
of Cqigress. however, there is no doubt
what&'er.
All told there are some 49 fish hatch
eries In the land. They the located in
26 staes and have in attendance a force
of about 1000 men. this figure including
those employed at headquarters in Wash
ington.) Salmon are being propagated
at 11 ptatlons, whitefish at seven, lake
trout at five, shad at four, pike-perch at
three, co at two. striped bass, white
perch and yellow perch at .one each, and
the lobster at two.
The number of species now regularly
cultivated and distributed by the com
mission is upward of 50, and the arti
ficial propagation of new fish is being
taken up as work increases and demand
arises. A full list of species handled
follows: ,
Thus in the rivers of the Atlantic sea
board shad, salmon, striped bass, white
perch and yellow perch have been
planted; in the 'streams of the Pacific
Coast, qulnnat salmon, blueback salmon,
silver salmon, humpback salmon, steel
heads; the Great Lakes have been
stocked with . white lake herring, lake
trout and pike perch; the numerous in
terior lakes, ponds and streams have
been enriched by plants of landlocked
salmon, rainbow trout, black spotted
trout, brook trout, grayling, black bass,
calico basscrappie, rock bass, sun fish,
etc., and in the waters of the northeast
coast the supply of cod, pollock, flat
fish and lobster has been increased.
At the Little White Salmon and Big
White Salmon substations in Washington,
the planting and propagation of qulnnat
salmon is being conducted on an enorm
ous scale At the former nearly 6,000,000
eggs and 11,000,000 fry have already been
deposited, while at the latter about 2,750,
000 eggs and 6,340.000 fry have been dis
tributed. The Baker Lake Station in
Washington is receiving daily shipments
of steelhead trout, qulnnat salmon, blue
back salmon, silver salmon and hump
back salmon. To date they have received
nearly 200,000 eggs (steelhead trout) and
nearly 8,000,000 fry.
Large plantings of these eggs and. fry
are being made in Branch Clover Creek,
Speller Creek, Muskrat Lake, Yakima
River, Wagoner Lake,. Martin's Lake,
Sanpoil Lake, Bear Creek and Ftenck
Lake, Fish Pond at Seattle, Trout Lake
at Spokane. West Fork of the White
Salmon River, and in numerous other
streams in the state. The sub-stations
at Eagle and Tanner Creeks in the same
state have been forwarded considerably
over a million qulnnat salmon fry.
The Rogue River substation in Oregon
is being supplied with qulnnat salmon,
steelhead trout and black spotted trout,
of which they have received nearly 10,
000,000 fry. The Clackamas station in
Oregon is in receipt of qulnnat salmon.
land-locked salmon, brook trout, rainbow
trout, steelhead trout, black-spotted trout,
lake trout and graylings. It has received.
of these specimens, over 3,000,000 eggs
(qulnnat salmon), about 6,500.000 fry (quln
nat salmon), 500,009 of fry divided among
the other species and flngerlings, year
lings, and adults about 150,000.
The graylings were planted in the Walla
Walla River, the lake trout In Clackamas
River, Sucker, Gorden and Perkins Lakes.
The brook trout near Falls City,, near
Clackamas, in the Umatilla River, near
Bingham, in Deer Lake, Oregon City;
Spring Lake, Ashland, and quite a num
ber of other creeks and larger streams;
black spotted trout at Junction City,
Trout Lake. Umatilla County, at Astoria,
etc., rainbow trout at Dallas, Stone, La
Grande, Albany, The Dalles, in Clatsop
and in Umatilla Counties; the land-locked
salmon in Clackamas River and steelhead
trout in Clear Creek, near Stone, and at
Rogue River station and at Astoria.
The streams of Idaho are stocked and
taken care of by the Bozeman Btatlon in
Montana, and the stations in Washington.
Large brook trout plantings are being
roaae in me souin central part oi ine
State. ,
A summary of the distributions and as
slgnments of fish and eggs in the states
for the year 190o as estimated and sup
plied by the Fish Commission is as fol
lows:
Idaho, 280,100; Montana, 3,456,640; North
Dakota, 412,540; Oregon. 30.417,614; Utah,
87,534; Washington, 29.768,418.
Mr. Bowers, the Commissioner, est!
mates according to what has already
been done that for the fiscal year that
will end June 30 next more will have been
accomplished la the collection of eggs and
fish than ever before. To April 1 of this
year there had been collected 1,659,255,735
eggs of all kinds, as compared with SSI,
608,322 eggs collected for the same period
during the previous year. He thinks the
record will be over 2,000,000,000 of eggs
by July 1.
Thousands of visitors who. come to
Washington go down to Bryan Point to
inspect the big hatchery there. Right in
the city there Is also at the main head
quarters of the commission a wonderful
exhibit of general interest. In the big
glass tanks are specimens of the game
and colored fish and these are "kept on
exhibition throughout the year and can
be seen to as much advantage in the Win
ter as during the balmy Spring and in
tne hottest days of Summer.
The most beneficial work for the coun
try at large being done by the commls
sion is In the propagation and distrlbu
tion of what are known as food fish, such
as shad, salmon, pike, white fish, nick
erel, etc Our experts in this business
have become so famous and so success
ful that other nations are sending men to
the United States to learn the methods
that have been discovered to increase the
supply of fish upon which millions upon
millions of people depend. Uncle Sam is
so well supplied with fish eggs and young
nsn that he Is annually giving to foreign
countries hundreds of thousands of speci
mens with his compliments.
NEW ORK CRIME FIGURES
Preponderance of Male AVildness Is
Very Marked.
NEW YORK, April 24. Although the
.population of the county of New York has
Increased 140.S70 during the past three
years, there has not been a proportionate
increase in crime, according to the an
nual report of District Attorney Jerome's
chief clerk.
In the detailed reports of felonies there
is no marked advance of figures as com
pared with former years. The average
number of prisoners charged with felony
who were confined in the city prison dur
ing the last three years was 176. This is
the lowest average on record.
The number of indictments and com
plaints disposed of during the year 1904
was 5033. Forty-nine per cent resulted in
pleas of guilty. A little over 12 per cent
of the prisoners were convicted by ver
diet.' About 17 per cent were acquitted.
The classified list of convictions during
1904 shows a startling preponderance of
male criminals. Only 169 women were con
victed, as against 2297 men. Of the 169
females, 126 were found guilty of larceny
and three of manslaughter.
Of the 24S5 persons convicted during
the year, 1610 were natives of tho United
States The others were divided as fol

SPECIRL TIN "
Fi 100 H00
Lumbermen Are Coming
to
Portland to Hold Annual
Convention.
ITINERARY IS ARRANGED
Northern Route Is Selected, and the
Principal Cities of the Pacific
Northwest ' Will Be
Visited.
Five hundred persons will be attracted
to Portland in September by the annual
convention of the Concatenated Order of
Hoo Hoo. A special train will carry at
least 125 to 250 of the- visitors, who will
start from St. Louis September 2, arriv
ing in Portland September 8.
An official bulletin has been issued
from Hoo-Hoo headquarters, giving a
map of the route selected. The bulletin
gives the routing and other general in
formation, as follows.
What you see on the trip is of great
benefit and Immense educational value
but what you take along with you is of
infinitely more importance. The folks- on
this pilgrimage will have In stock good
humor and good cheer a radiant vitality
that lifts up the heart and refreshes the
brain grown weary with the cares of life.
As a recreation the trip will bo worth
many times Its cost. Railroad and sleeper
fare is less expensive than doctors' bills
and very much more fun. A change of
environment broadens the mind, sharpens
the wits and stirs up the liver. Most of
us are pitifully narrow. We revolve
around in our little circle till we grow a
hard shell. It will help u'all to get out
Into the atmosphere of the boundless
West, where men grow big ideas to match
the mountain?, the plains and other things
that suggest magnitude and majesty. On
the Journey we will have time to make
some delightful new acquaintances and to
see on the way many Interesting phases
of life. There will be extended to us
courtesies that will add greatly to the
pleasure of the trip. Every luxury of
modern travel will be ours.
In so far as It will discriminate to the
disadvantage of some of the roads, the
officers of Hoo-Hoo would have greatly
preferred to select no route and run no
special train. The Concatenated Order of
Hoo-Hoo embraces in its membership the
high officials of practically every road
traversing the continent. These men are
all good Hoo-Hoo and have done faithful
and noble work in furthering the Interests
of the ordw. We would gladly have left
the whole thing to these men and let each
road take what it could get of the travel
to the Hoo-Hoo annual. It was felt,
however, that if the matter was left In
this shape each man to make the trip
out. to Portland by himself and by the
route to be figured out by himself It
would result in a very small attendance.
To state it differently, it was felt that if
we could arrange for a special train to
take out anywhere from 125 to 250 per
sons and put the whole thing before each"
man as a definite and concrete proposi
tion a very much larger number (ft peo
ple would take advantage of It and the
trip be Infinitely mOre enjoyable. This
consideration, and this alone, led up to
the idea of a special train and the conse
quent necessity of selecting a route.
The general Idea ofthe committee was
to select some Northern route for the
going trip and some central route for the
return. It was felt that a Northern route
was Imperative for the reason that such
a route will take us through the great
lumber centers of Spokane. Seattle and
Tacoma and permit of stops being made
at these points. Had a central route been
selected for the "going" trip a special .side
trip from Portland, at an added expense,
would have been necessary for those and
we surmise the number of such to be
large who desire to visit the great lum
ber centers named. Consideration of
these facte led to the selection of the
Northern Pacific. A central route for the
return trip was selected for the reason
that it was felt that a more southern
trip would traverse a less picturesque
country and be less comfortable on ac
count of dust and heat.
The main idea that the committee had
in view was to select such a route as
would traverse the most picturesque
mountain country, take in as many as
possible of the points of greatest Inter
est to lumber people without side trips
and to return by a route that would take
them down through Central and Southern
California, returning finally across the
country by a route which while In Itself
picturesque and Interesting Is reasonably
free from dust and excessive heat.
The routing Is as follows:
Chicago to SL Paul by Chicago & North
western. St. Louis to St. Paul by Chicago, Bur
lington &. Quincy.
St. Paul to Seattle and Portland by
Northern Pacific
St. Paul to Seattle and Portland. '
Portland down to Sacramento by the
world-famous "Shasta Line" of the
Southern Pacific.
Sacramento to San Francisco over
Southern Pacific.
San Francisco "to Los Angeles by an
other world-famous route, the "Coast
Line" of the Southern Pacific
Los Angeles to Sacramento by another
equally picturesque and Interesting line
of the Southern Pacific the noted "Val
ley Route." through the San Joaquin Val
leycelebrated in song and story and
oft dreamed of by all readers of Bret
Harte. Joaquin Miller and other of the
virile writers of the breezy West.
Salt Lake City to Omaha over the Union
Pacific
Omaha to Chicago over the Chicago &
Northwestern.
On one point the committee was not
only unanimous, but enthusiastic. It was
that If any man goes out to Portland
on Ihls special train or to the annual
meeting, no matter how he goes and who
does not make that swing through Cal
ifornia, will miss one of the greatest op
portunities of his life. From communi
cations already received, and which were
before the committee at its two sittings.
It seems that so far practically every one
going out to Portland will make this trip.
The route selected through California Is
the most beautiful In the world, barring
none. The age-long celebrated points on
the Riviera and the mountains of Swit
zerland .cannot equal it. The committee
urges that eyervone going to Portland will
make his arrangements to take this trip
to Los Angeles.
The special train will be a duplicate
or counterpart of tho famous "North
Coast Limited," going out from Chicago
over the Chicago & Northwestern and
Northern Pacific to Portland. This is one
of tho finest trains In America. Our spe
cial train will consist of as lino an en
gine as the road can furnish; enough
baggage cars to take our legitimate bag
gage, and as many of the 'contudlnaries"
as space will permit; a standard full
length dining-car (it Is figured that one
dining-car will suffice If the number on
the train does not exceed the mini
mum limit of 125; If somthing like 150 or
200 go on the train two dining-cars will be
put on). The balance of the train will
ponsist of an observation club car (every
body knows what an observation car is on
one of these continental lines); and then
the sleepers, which are to be the regula
tion standard Pullman make.
The itinerary is as follows:
Leave St. Louis 7 A. M. Saturday, Sep
tember 2. via C. B. & Q.
Leave Chicago 6:30 P. M. Saturday, Sep
tember 2. via Chicago & Northwestern
Railway.

DUE LOSES ESSE
Jury at Council Bluffs Brings
Unfavorable Verdict.
HE SPENT MONTHS IN JAIL
Action Was Brought to Prove Part
nership in Three Claims of the
Portland Company in the
Cripple Creek District.
COUNCIL BLUFFS. la., April 23. The
jury In the Portland mining suit, in which
James Doyle brought suit to recover an
amount aggregating $1,000,000, which he
alleged was due him for his Interest in
the Tidal Wave, Bobtail No. 2 and Devil's
Own claims, now a part of the property
of the Portland Mining Company, at mid
night brought in a verdict for defendant.
The Portland mining suit, in which
James Doyle is plaintiff and James F.
Burns defendant, was an action to prove
a partnership in the Bobtuil No. 2. Devil's
Own and Tidal Wave claims, located in
the Cripple Creek district in 1S32. The
properties now belong to the Portland
Gold Mining Company, stock of that cor
poration having been issued to Burns In
exchange for them.
In the case just decided Doyle claimed
5561.62S.13 as the value of his half of the
stock with dividends and Interest. Burns
line of defense was that he and Doyle
were partners In the Portland claim, for
which Doyle received his share of stock,
and in no others.
The case dates back to February 7. 1S93,
when a. petition was filed in the district
court vhere claiming 5620.000. Notice was
served on Burns while he was attending
the annual stockholders' meeting of the
company In Council Bluffs. He was at
that time and until February of this year
president of the company.
Burns filed a special appearance and
motion to quash the notice, objecting to
the court's jurisdiction. Judge Smith en
tered an order overruling the motion and
directing the defendant to plead.
Burns refused to come into court, and
instead commenced an action against
Doyle in Colorado to enjoin him from
proceeding with the suit here, and
Judge Lunt granted an injunction.
Doyle came to Council Bluffs and as
Bums had ignored the Iowa court's
order by falling to plead, Doyle disre
garded the Colorado injunction, took
a default against Burns, proved up
and wa"s given judgment for 5717,025.
Doyle then returned home, was sum
moned before Judge Lunt and ordered
by him to set aside the judgment In
Iowa within three days. This he re
fused to do and was sent to jail, where
he remained for eight months.
In July. 1S99. on motion of Burns
counsel. Judge Thornell ordered the de
