Kritaln. three the Japanese flag, two
tiie Norwegian, and one the German. Of
the American eteamers. the major portion
of them are in the lumber trade Coast
wise. Two of them are oil carriers, and
five are regular passenger boats. The
two Norwegians are loading lumber for
North China ports, and the Numantia
(German) is one of the regular steam
ers plying for the Portland & Asiatic
Steamship Company. The three Marus
of the Mikado are loading flour and
wheat for Japan and North China ports.
One of them is being dispatched by the
regular steamship company.
The Pleiades Is one of the steamers for
merly In the trans-Pacific trade from
Puget Sound. She will load lumber at
this port for California and make her
Initial trip in the coastwise trade from
here. The Pleiades is a big carrier and
will make money ln the lumber carrying
business. She will load at the mills of
the Eastern & Western Lumber Com
pany. The Santa Maria has been laid up for
the past week for repairs. In passing
the site of the new bridge of the Portland
& Seattle Railway Company she struck
one of the piers and bent her rudder
stock. She will be in shape to leave down
LARGE CARGOES CLEAR PORT
Strnrhortl Carries Wheat and the
Kotoliira Maru Takes Klour.
The steamship Strathord cleared yester
day for Shanghai with 234.2RI bushels of
wheat, valued at $167.3.18. The Kotohira
Maru cleared with 25.417 barrels of flour
for North China. The value of the lat
ter' s cargo wits $S2,ti00.
' The clearing of these steamers brings
the February shipments up to a good
figure. The wheat for the month Is
about lfiO.noo bushels less than' the ship
ments of January, but this is more than
counterbalanced by the flour shipments,
which have ,o far nearly doubled those
of the preceding month. The Manshu
Maru, operating for the Portland &
Asiatic Company, hegan working yester
day with four gangs at the Alaska dock.
Work on the steamer will be rushed, but
it is doubtful whether she will finish in
time to get In the February business.
The Manshu is the only possibility for
the. remainder of the month. The total
value of foodstuffs shipped foreign this
month Is J042,21fl, as compared with J90t,
;m in January, a gain in valuations
for the present' month of $33,958.

Masts Were Stepped Yesterday In
The schooner barge Washougal. belong
ing to Daniel Kern, was towed to the
Albina dock yesterday morning and her
masts stepped. She was brought back
to the Willamette boiler dock, where the
final work on the, rigging will be done.
She will then load lumber for San Fran
cisco. The Washougal is one of four stone
barges which have been converted into
lumber carriers by Mr. Kern. Two of
them were remodeled on Gray's Harbor
and two at Portland. The Washington,

got into trouble off the bar and was
compelled to put back to Astoria for
AFTEK STERN-WHEEL BOATS
California Teople Are Negotiating
for Sarah Dixon.
California people are negotiating for th
purchase of the steamer Sarah Oixon. It
is their intention, if they get the boat,
to place her on the run between San
Francisco and points on the Sacramento
River. The Sarah Dixon is owned by
Captain James Shaver.
Several times it has been announced
that the steamer Telephone, which has
been tied up at the Ha-seltine dock on
the East Side for the past year, would
be taken to California and placed on
the Sacramento River. The Telephone
would certainly be the flagship of the
fleet If she went south.
STEAMER HERCULES WRECKED
IMown on the Rocks at Three-Mile
Rapids Above The Dalles.
.THE DALLES! Or., Feb. 25. (Special.)
The steamer Hercules, of the Regulator
line, was sunk this afternoon at Three
Mile Rapids, above this 'city, while en
route with freight-to the Portage Rail
road. ' She now lies on .the sands near
the Washington shore, with ,a. good-sized
hole, stove through her hull behind the
boiler. A high wind prevailed on the
river, which turned . the steamer from
her course and onto the rocks. Captain

the Hercules can be raised without se
rious damage within a few days.
FIXE OF $5000 IS REMITTED
Captain Hopken Takes Cases to
Higher Authorities and Wins.
ASTORIA. Or., Feb. 25. (Special!) A
letter waa received at the Custom House
today from the Department of Commerce
and Labor, stating that the fine of $5000
recently imposed by Collector of Customs
Carnahan on the German ship Arthur Fit
ger has been remitted. The Fitger ar
rived here from Bristol, England, a short
time ago, via Antwerp, and failed to
bring a consular bill of health from Bris
tol, although she had one from Antwerp.
The fine was imposed for failure to have
a health bill from Bristol, as the local
customs authorities contended that it wa9
from that port the voyage was com
menced. Captain G. Hopken, master of
the vessel, filed a protest against the fine.
In which he asserted that he took com
mand of the ship after her arrival at
Antwerp, so was not responsible for any
dereliction before that time. The de
partment allowed the protest and remit
ted the fine.

It Is not claimed for Frieda Stender. who
comes to the White Temple March 1, un
der the auspices of the Y. M. C. A., as a
eo-star In concert with Otle Chew and Thllo
Becker, that she Is the greatest soprano In
the world, or that she is phenomenal or
freakish In her vocal accomplishments. It
is asserted by the management and con
firmed by an infinity of critiques that she
is a truly superb artiste, and one of whom
America can well be proud.
Miss Stender's full, pure voice is of that
musical and resonant timbre which appeals
to the heart equally as much as it delights
the ear. The , musical temperament and
muslcanly mind of Miss Ptender combine to
give at all times a studied and comprehen
sive interpretation that astonishes the mu

that Is called personal magnetism, she
charms all who hear her, whether a trained

DEVLIN UNDER FIRE
Committee Questions Him Re
garding Experts' Report. .
DENIES ANY PART IN IT
Auditor Testifies That He Did Not
Seek to Influence Findings of
Clarke and Buchanan Member
of Company Confirms Him.
Onewtlon After nuestlnn in retard tA hi
relations with Clarke & Buchanan, ex
pert accountants, was fired at City Aud
itor Devlin yesterday afternoon by mem
bers of the special Council committee,
appointed to investigate the experts' re
port. The tenor of the inquiry was to
ascertain if Mr. Devlin in any way sought
to influence the report of the experts, ana
it developed both in his testimony and
that of Mr. Clarke that he had not. The
committee brought out in detail the con
versations that occurred between Mr.
Clarke and Mr. Devlin, but it . developed
that all to which importance was at
tached occurred after the filing of the re
port with Mayor Lane.
For almost an hour, the committee,
which is composed of Councilmen Kella
her, Rushlight and Vaughn, Interrogated
Mr. Devlin in regard to the suggested em
ployment of Clarke as the accountant for
a proposed bonding company. Most of
the questions were directed with a view
of finding out if Mr. Devlin had told
Clarke prior to the filing of the latter s
report that Clarke was being considered
as a probable employe of a firm that was
to be organized of friends of Mr. Devlin.
It developed that Auditor Devlin and
Clarke had talked concerning such a po
sition, but Devlin declared It was a
matter entirely foreign to the controver
sy over the experting of the books. Both
Clarke and Devlin said that the conver
sation had taken place after the filing
of the experts' report and after action
upon it had been taken.
Vaughn Questions Auditor.
Vaughn questioned Auditor Devlin at
length to ascertain if he had offered to
concur in the remainder of the report If
Clarke would agree to drop the portion
of his findings comprising recommenda
tions for the Auditors office. Clarke
testified that Devlin had said that he
would support the remainder of the re
port of the recommendations were not
"In order to make this matter clear,"
said Mr. Clarke, "I want to say that at
no time during the preparation of my
report did Mr. Devlin, his deputies nor
any of his friends try to influence me
in any way as to what I should include
in that report. Later, after the' report
had been submitted to the Council and
referred to this committee, Mr. Devlin
said that if 1 would not urge the recom
mendations in regard to his department
he would stand by me."
"What I told Mr. Clarke." replied the
Auditor, "was that I would agree with
the portions of his report outside of the
recommendations. I did not consider
them feasible, but they bad already been
submitted to the Council and this com
mittee and there could be no way to elim
inate' them. I certainly knew that it
would be no use for me to try to In-'
fluence this committee. I know what this
committee will report and it would have
been no use for me to try to dictate
Questioned Clarke as to Fitness.
In order to ascertain his qualifications
as an expert, Devlin closely questioned
Clarke as to work of that character he
had done and also upon certain points of
municipal accounting. When aked what
cities he had done accounting for. Clarke
mentioned Baker City, The Dalles and
Astoria. He said that he had also done
accounting for Bradstreet's in Lincoln
"I simply want to find out what cities
of somewhat the same size as Portland
you have done accounting for. I have
not had much to say in this investigation
and I want to ask a few questions. The
cities you have mentioned as employing
you are all small places.
"Will you tell me. Mr. Clarke, what
accounts are debited and what accounts
are credited to any appropriation fund?"
"Those books are on record." was the
reply. "They are the best evidence."
"Do you mean- to tell me you cannot
name the various accounts?"
"I do not remember tbem."
"It seems to me that one who poses
as an absolute authority on experting
would know so simple a point as this,
when he has had the books of my de
partment in his control for 18 months."
The committee adjourned to meet
Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. A re
port has been demanded by the Council
at its next session.

GOOD COCGH MEDJCIJTE FOR CHILDREN
The season for coughs and colds is now
at hand and too much care cannot be
used to protect the children. A child is
much more likely to contract diphtheria
or scarlet fever when he has a cold. The
quicker you cure his cold the less the
risk. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is
the sole reliance of many mothers, and
few of them who have tried it are willing
to use any other. Mrs. F. F. Starcher, of
Ripley, W. Va., says, "I have never used
anything other than Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy for my children and it has al
ways given good satisfaction." This
remedy contains no opium or other nar
cotic and may be given as confidently
to a child as to an adult.
