Annual Statistics of Northwest
Trade Conditions In Which
Oregon Receives Praise,
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington. June 12. British Consul James
Laidlaw, assigned to the Oregon-Washington-Idaho
district, gives Portland a
ftreat send-off in his report to the British
Foreign Office, covering the year 1905.
Incidentlly he speaks in glowing terms ot
the entire Northwest, very favorably
mentioning Tacoma and Seattle, in addi
tion to Portland. In his introductory re
marks. Mr. Laidlaw says:
"The year 1905 has been one of remark
able progress throughout this Consular
district, and the very successful Exposi
tion held in Portland has already had the
effect of increasing the Immigration o
desirable settlers and the Influx of out
Bide capital and enterprises, not only into
Portland, but into the three states. As a
means of advertising the products and re
sources of the states and countries which
participated, the exhibition was an un
qualified success. Many prophesied a de
pression after its close, but the reverse
lias been the case, and real estate values
have advanced materially in Portland and
continue to do so. In view of railway ex
tensions planned and in progress.
Consul Laidlaw then enters upon an ex
haustive accout of Portland's import and
export trade, citing elaborate statistics.
He calls attention to the shortage in ce
ment, and points out the market that has
opened up for the British cement because
of the limited supply of home product on
the Pacific Coast. The demand for rail
way Iron, he says, will be very great
throughout the present year.ln view of the
many miles of railway In process of con
struction and projected. He believes the
American iron works will be taxed to
their utmost capacity, and expresses the
opinion that there will be opportunities
for the sale of British iron.
The growth of the flour, wheat, timber,
fish and fruit export trade is all set forth
in detail, but he finds that a rapid change
is taking place in the destinations, partic
ularly of the wheat shipments. This is
being diverted to the Far East in the form
of flour. Instead of being exported to the
"The largest sawmills In the world ar
to be found In this district," continues the
report, "and the production is enormous.
One sawmill in Portland cut 131.000,000 feet
of lumber, and one at Port Blakeley near
ly the same amount during the year.
Portland Is now the largest lumber-producing
city in the world, the product of
all its mills having been 641,320.000 feet
during the year; that of Tacoma was 347,
Farther along in his report the Consul
gives estimates on the banking situation
In Portland, as well as in Seattle, Ta
coma and other Northwestern cities. Real
estate values in the Oregon metropolis
also comes in for a nice boost from the
British Consul, which he states are ad
vancing with the greatest rapidity.
Detailed statements of the wheat crop
In the State of Washington are also gone
into thoroughly by Consul Laidlaw, as is
the shipping industry on Puget Sound,

ACIDEXT TO CHESTER.
Twice Sunken Steamer Hits Another
Xog Near Toledo.
CASTLE ROCK, Wash., June 12. While
cruising down from Toledo Sunday, the
steamer Chester had another large hole
stove in her, but by prompt action on
the part of her officers1 and crew she
was kept from sinking. The river was
full of wild logs, and the officers were
expecting something would happen, and
so were prepared for emergencies. It Is
said to be against the law for loggers to
set logs adrift without accompanying
them, but the loggers up this way seem
to think they own the river and can do
as they please; hut after they pay dam
ages a few times It is hoped they will
respect the law.

Mr. McKenzle, with his usual whole

seated in a fashionable cafe. Good things
came in abundance under Mr. McKen

When the time for departure did finally
arrive the party, in a spirit of benevo

the management of the cafe. Mr. Mc
Kenzle, of course, was placed in charge
of the fund and he at once stepped for
ward to present it. However, on leaving
the donors of the fund Mr. McKenzle be
came absorbed in some perplexing theo
logical or financial problem and forgot
all about the trivial mission upon which
he was bent. He passed absent-mindedly
out of the main entrance and strolled
rapidly and absent-mindedly eastward,

Graft on Colville Indians
Passed by House With
LAWYERS TO BE PAID FIRST
Fitzgerald Would Have Opposed It,
But House Acts In His Absence.
Proposed Rifle Range Near
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, June 12. Choosing an oppor
tune moment today, when nobody was
looking, Chairman Sherman, of the
House Indian committee, called up and
secured the approval of the conference
report on the Indian appropriation bill,
which embodies the Colville Indian
graft. It had been the intention of
Representative Fitzgerald, of New
York, to make a fight on .this feature
of the report, but he was not present
at the time.
Reference to the text of the bill dis
closes that it is specifically stated that
J15J.O0O cash appropriation, the first
payment of $1,500,000 to the Colvilles
for the north half of their reservation,
is made "for the use and benefit of the
Indians," and yet Senator McCumber,
in defending the lawyers' graft, stated
in the Senate yesterday that it was un
derstood in committee that this first ap
propriation would go to the lawyers,
the Indians not to receive any part
of it. t
It is now np to the President to eith
er permit this graft to go through or
veto the entire Indian appropriation
BUY RANGE NEAR VANCOUVER
War Department Proposes Substitute
for American Luke Site.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, June 12. Representative Cush
man yesterday endeavored to secure
the adoption of an amendment to the
sundry civil bill appropriating 230,000
to purchase the Army rifle range at
American Lake, near Tacoma, but a
point of order was made, and the
amendment was defeated. Chairman
Tawney, in charge of the bill, thought
it advisable to purchase a range at or
near Vancouver Barracks, where most
of the troops of the Department of the
Columbia are located, and his sugges
tion brought out the fact that the War
Department is favorable to this propo
sition. It is probably too late at this ses
sion to secure the authorization of the
purchase of a range at Vancouver, but
it is expected that during the present
Summer officers in charge of rifle prac
tice will pick out a desirable site for
a range convenient to Vancouver Bar
racks, and, if satisfactory terms can be
made. .there is reason to expect that the
necessary appropriation for its pur
chase may be made next session. If
not, the range will be rented.

still another would stand nursing a wild
desire to rent his head out to a cold

VICTED OF LESE MAJESTE.
Atonement Will -Be Made August
Herman, Who WTas Imprisoned
and Stripped of Property.
SEATTLE, Wash., June 12. (Spe
cial.) The German Emperor has per
sonally directed a thorough search to be
made for August Herman, wrongfully
convicted in 1892 of lese majeste, his
property confiscated and the man sub
sequently turned out of prison penni
less. Atonement Is to be made if Her
man can be found and taken back to
Germany. D. P. Mueller, of Berlin, or
dered to locate the man, has sailed for
Skagway, and will make a thorouga
search throughout the district, in an
effort to locate him.
Herman was a brewer living in the
outskirts of Berlin when accused of
lese majeste. He was convicted, sen
tenced to four years' imprisonment and
a fine of 25000. His property was con
fiscated to pay the fine. After serving
the term. Herman came here, and was
at one time employed in a local brew
ery. He was a packer on the Skagway
trail during the early Klondike rush,
and one of the first Dawson bakers.
He nas since dropped from sight.
After Herman's departure from Ger
many Influential friends kept at work
to prove nls innocence. They ultimate
ly succeeded, with the result that-the
Emperor has personally assured them
that he will make amends for the man's
sufferings. That is why Mueller was
commissioned to find Herman.
HITCH IN THEATER BUILDING
Cordray Says Portland Ordinances
Add Too Much to the Cost.
SPOKANH, Wash., June 12. (Special.)
Recent ordinances enacted by the Port
land. City Council may cause a hitch in
the plans of John W. Cordray for the
erection of a $225,000 theater in that city
by Charles Sweeney, of Spokane. The
city ordinances now provide for a multi
tude of details, such as the erection of
steel vault dressing rooms, steel bal
conies, rigging lofts, flies and the like.
Compliance with these provisions would
add $100,000 to the estimated cost of the
new building, and would make its rent
F. J. Finucane, of. this city, representing
Mr. Sweeney, after a conference- with Mr.
Cordray this afternoon left for Portland
to look over the situation.
"Strict compliance with the present
cumbersome and illogical building laws
have caused a hitch," said Mr. Cordray.
"The original estimates provided for a
fireproof brick and stone structure, but
did not anticipate the expenditure of an
additional $100,000 to comply with require
ments of recently enacted building or
dinances." If Mr. Cordray refers to the present
building ordinance in the above dispatch,
it is possible that the details to which lie
refers will be changed in a new ordinance
which is soon to come up before the
Council. The task has been undertaken
of preparing a new building ordinance,
which. It is expected, will do away with
certain objections which have been
brought from time to time against the
present one. ,
