Steamer Geo. W. Elder to
Leave St. Johns Drydock
REPAIRS ALMOST FINISHED
May Operate In Conjunctlou "With
Koanoke Doe Steamer Idne Has
Been ot Great Benefit to
Local -Shipping Firms.
In another -week the steamship George
"W. Elder will be floated from the dry
lock and, according to her owners, will
' he a much finer, sounder and faster ves
j bel than before ehe ran on the rocks in
'the Columbia River off Goble, Or., in
(January. 1905. On May 22 last. Captain
-V. H. aker and his wrecking crew from
the Great Lakes, succeeded in pulling
the vessel off her berth on the rocks.
The wreckers were employed toy J. H.
Peterson, of this city, who had pur
chased the vessel from the underwriters
.after several unsuccessful attempts to
illft her had failed. One week later the
Fiona: submersed craft was placed on the
(Port ot Portland drydock at St. Johns,
I and had been undergoing repairs there
tever since. At the rate of 110 per day
dock charges, the cost of this Item alone
I will run over $10,600. The cost of dock
(jirivilcgos for the vessel will be the smal
lest Item In the expense of repairing the
Vveswel, for ever since she was placed on
the lift, there have been from 100 to 209
J skilled mechanics employed in the re
! construction of the vessel. The large
(hole stove in her hull made It necessary
.to replace the old iron plates which formed
that section of the vessel with new steel
plates, and the work of riveting these
J plates together has been a tedious Job.
. The first Job undertaken by the contrae
Jtors was the clearing of the vessel's hold
"of the tons of cement that had been
' placed over the hole in her hull before
she was raised. Now that the work is
practically completed, her owners are In
la cheerful frame of mind and have great
topes in the future of the vessel.
The Elder is being equipped with olK
burning furnaces, and will be one knot
taster than before. As soon as the ves
sel Is floated the work of fitting her
with new furnishJngB, both inside and
out. will he taken up, and it is probable
that the steamer will be taken to Vic
toria to have this portion of the work
J. H. Peterson and Charles P. Doe,
joint owners of the vessel, have not yet
definitely decided as to the ultimate run
on which she will be operated, but more
than likely the vessel will ply between
Portland and San Pedro in conjunction
with the Roanoke. This latter vessel
has been the only passenger vessel be
tween Portland and San Francisco since
the beginning of the sailors' strike, with
the exception of the first few weeks,
when the F. A. Kilbum carried passen
gers to the Bay City.
On account of the demand for trans
portation to the coastwise towns of Coos
Bay and Eureka points, the management
of this latter vessel were forced to dis
continue handling through traffic, which
left the Roanoke as the only vessel avail
able to the traveling public.
The Roanoke has proved a great help
to the merchants of this city, for the
reason that she is a vessel of the same
size as the steamship Columbia, of the
Harriman system, and can handle a large
cargo. According to Agent Harry Young,
of the North Pacific Steamship Com
pany, the Roanoke has repeatedly carried
extra freight from other lines as an ac
commodation to the shippers, making
room for it by cutting down on the list
ing of other consignments when this was
found necessary. When the vessel sails
tonight she will have her usual capacity
cargo, BOO tons of which consists of
freight that was refused by the steam
ers Alliance and F. A. Kilburn, both of
which had their space engaged before
-he date of sailing.
K1XBUKX LEAVES TONIGHT.
Coastwise Steamer Will Have Full
Cargo of Trclght and Passengers.
The steamer F. A. Kilburn leaves to
night for Coos Bay points. Eureka and
Can Francisco, with a full cargo of freight
tfor the coastwise potts. She will also
ararry 84 passengers for Coos Bay and
,32ureka. but none for San Francisco, as
jthe Watsonville Navigation Company dis
continued handling through passengers to
jthe Bay City some few weeks ago. This
was done in order to accommodate the
passengers desiring transportation to the
other two ports.
Agent Greenough was kept busy yester
day allotting space to the various con
eignees, for there was more freight offer
ed than the capacity of the vessel will ac
commodate, and large consignments had
to be cut considerably. The vessel sails
fit 8 o'clock.

Government Encourages Its
OREGON GOATS PROSPER
Georgeson Proposes Forest Reserve
In Interior, Where Lumber Is
Costly, and Breeding of Live
stock on Islands.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Aug. 29. Agriculture, under cer
tain limitations, is a complete success in
Alaska. This has been borne out by
experiments started several years ago by
the Department of Agriculture and later
by actual farming that has been done
by a rapidly increasing number of farm
ers who have gone into the territory
ARRIVES TO LOAD LUMBER
from the northern tier of states. Each
year the department has Issued a report
on the progress of agricultural develop
ment and each succeeding report shows
an increased production and an increase
in' the farm acreage.
Generally speaking, all vegetables that
ripen quickly can be successfully grown
in Alaska, and the seme is true of fruits,
provided Jhe trees can withstand the long,
cold Winters. Year by year new varieties
of fruits and vegetables are being expe
rimented with, until today the depart
ment presents a great array, that in
cludes most of the fruits, berries and
vegetables found on the table of the
American farmer. Experience has dem
onstrated, however, that vegetables and
grains do best when carefully acclimated.
Seed grown in Alaska produces better
results than seed imported from the
states; fruits and berries from the states
do better when grafted or crossed with
native trees or bushes. But the Alaskan
farmers are learning how and with the
aid of the department experiment sta
tions are now able to raise crops at a
good profit. Yearly the Imports' of food
products into Alaska are declining as the
local supply increases.
Good Livestock Country.
Having expended large sums on vegeta
bles and fruit experiments. Professor C.
C. Georgeson, in charge of this work in
Alaska, now seeks an annual appropria
tion from Congress to carry on expe
riments with livestock. Alaska imports
most of its meats, and milk is today
very scarce. A few livestock shipped to
Alaska In times past warrant the belief
that stockraislng in certain localities can
be made a success, provided the stock
are well chosen and of breeds that can
stand the rigorous Winters. What Pro
fessor Georgeson seeks is what he terms
a "general purpose animal," one which
makes good beef and can at the same
time be used for the dairy. Congress
has already appropriated over $200,000 for
the introduction of reindeer Into Alaska,
and with good results, but he believes
that even better results can be attained
by introducing cattle. To start with, he
wants $10,000 to establish a livestock sta
tion on Kadlak Island. That will suffice
to determine the kinds of stock best
suited to that region. Later stations could
be established elsewhere, where there is
In August, 1905, Judge Andrew Helman
at Copper Center imported from Mon
mouth, Or., 25 grade Angora ewes and
one buck. One year later he reported
that the Copper River Valley is an ideal
place for the propagation of Angora
goats, and announces his Intention of Im
porting 200 more ewes early next season.
He finds that a goat will dress from 40
to 60 pounds, and the meat, at 25 cents
a pound, is cheap in that market. He
says feed is plentiful and cheap, and pre
dicts a great future for the industry, in
which he is Alaska's pioneer.
More Forest Reserves Xeeded.
Two years ago an enormous forest re
serve was created to take in the best
timber land in Alaska, found on the isl
ands of the Alexander archipelago on the
southeast coast. Now there is demand
for reserves in the Interior. Professor
Georgeson says that the forests of the
Interior are of such importance that they
should be accorded Government protec
tion. The timber of the interior is smaller
than that of the coast, the trees, mainly
spruce, running only 18 to 20 inches in
diameter, but right in the midst of these
Interior forests lumber is worth $100 per
1000 feet, and at the mines, only 20 miles
from the mills, it brings $225 per 1000 feet.
Fire works great damage in these inte
rior forests, whereas the frequent heavy
rains on the coast are almost an abso
lute protection against forest fires. These
interior forests are doubly valuable be
cause of their slow growth, for once de
stroyed or denuded they take many times
longer to develop than the forests in the
Professor Georgeson says that at the
prices now prevailing the timber in Tan
ana Valley alone is worth all the Gov
ernment paid for Alaska. He believes this
enormous asset should be protected by
the Government and the cutting of tim
ber be so regulated that the people of
the future may share in its benefits.
There is need of Government regulation to
prevent wasteful cutting, but more par
ticularly to prevent the waste that re
sults from fires. Reserves, once created,
would need careful patrolling. It is rec
ommended that, if an interior reserve
is created, miners and settlers have the
free use of timber, as in the states, but
the use of timber should be restricted
to the needs of the people who live in
the vicinity and are developing the coun
try. Hot Springs Make Rich Farm.
One of the most interesting features of
Professor Georgeson's report is his de
scription of the Hot Springs farm. About
0 miles from the mouth of the Tanana
River is a famous hot spring. The hot
water bubbles to the surface in a num
ber of springs, and at other points there
are seepages. J. F. Karshner, a Kansas
farmer, happened on these springs and,
correctly estimating their importance, lo
cated a homestead, including the springs.
About 25 or 30 acres of his homestead
are warmed, either by the presence of
the springs or from underlying rocks
which heat the water. Whatever the
cause, Karshner is raising some of the
record crops of Alaska. He gets his veg
etables on the market ahead of all com
petitors and can raise a wider variety
of garden truck than any other farmer
in the territory. On July 24 he had mar
keted his early cabbages, cauliflower, car
rots and peas, to say nothing of lettuce,
radishes, turnips and other crops of rapid
growth. "This farm," says' Professor
Georgeson, "is a patch of the temperate
zone put down near the center of Alaska."
Farming by hot springs is unique; this
Karshner farm is the peer of any In all
WANTS ANOTHER DEPUTY
SHERIFF STEVENS APPLIES TO
THE COUNTY COURT.
Asks That Additional Help Be Pro
vided and That Deputy Jones'
Salary Be Raised.
Sheriff Stevens yesterday submitted
a written communication to Judge
Webster and County Commissioners
Barnes and Llghtner, asking that the
number of his outside deputies be in
creased from four to five, and also re
questing that the wages of Joseph H.
Jones,, who is engaged on the outside
collecting personal property taxes, be
fixed at $90 per month. Instead of $75.
Sheriff Stevens reported that Mr. Jones
has done good work, averaging 140
collections per day.
The outside deputies at present con
nected with the Sheriff's office are
N. H. Bird, Penumbra Kelly, Frank
Beatty and Archie Leonard. W. B.
Holllngsworth and Harvey I More
land, who were office deputies under
Sheriff Word, are still retained, but
for how long has not yet been de
cided. Rumor is that they will be re
tained permanently by Sheriff Stevens.
Mr. Leonard, it is supposed, will work
eventually as an office deputy, which
would place Mr. Moreland in the posi
tion of an outside deputy.
When Sheriff Stevens, assumed of
fice he asked the County Court mem
bers to allow him to appoint two ad
ditional outside deputies at $90 a
month, saying he had promised the
positions. He also desired to appoint
a deputy sheriff to act as deputy con
stable and assist Constable Wagner in
Justice Reid's court. His request at
that time was not granted, and Judge
Webster and Commissioners Barnes
and Llghtner, have taken the present
communication under advisement.
AWARDED TO IiOUIS EBELIVG
Restaurant Man to Feed Prisoners

Louis Ebeling was awarded the con
tract by the members of the County
Commissioners' Court yesterday to
feed the prisoners confined in the
county Jail for a period of one year
beginning September 1. The price to
be paid Is 11 cents a meal, two
meals a day. The rate allowed Sheriff
Ward was 17 cents a meal, and Sheriff
Stevens has demanded $3 a week to
feed the prisoners. Mr. Ebeling con
ducts a restaurant on Fourth street
near Salmon street, which is Just op
posite " the Court House, and he will
have employes carry, the meals Into
the Jail. Of the five bids submitted
his was the lowest. His business
location adjacent to the Court House
gives him an advantage in furnishing
the meals conveniently and hot.
Breakfast is to be served between
the hours of 7:30 and 8.30 A. M., to
consist of one order of meat and pota
toes, coffee with sugar, and one half
loaf of bread for each person.

Ebeling agreed to use good, fresh,
wholesome provisions, and to prepare
them properly. The county court re

GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP
No Medicine so Beneficial to Brain and
