Freight on Aragonia Is Worth
LARGE CASSIA SHIPMENT
Duty Paid Hero Will Exceed $60,
000 Many Firecrackers for
Eastern Cities Gunnies,
Jute and General Cargo.
While less fluty will be paid in the City
of Portland on the inward cargo of the
steamer Aragonia, the value of the Im
ports is far greater than that of the
steamer Arabia. A conservative estimate
of the value of the carfro on board the
Aragonia is about H50,00a Firecrackers,
cassia, gunnies and Jute form the prin
cipal part of the cargo. Firecrackers
and gunnies pay duty, while cassia and
Jute are admitted free.
Upwards of $20,000 In duties will be
paid In this city on the firecrackers
brought over by the Aragonia. Of the
Fourth of July explosions there are 8126
cases. The major portion of them are
for Eastern cities. Duty, however, will
be paid here. The manifest shows 1560
"bales of gunnies, on which there is a duty
of $2S a bale. This will increase the
amount of local fluty paid by J34.860.
For the penitentiary at Walla Walla
are 2500 bales of Jute. The entire con
signment will be cleared from this port.
Other valuable cargo consists of tin,
matting, porcelain and camphor.
When nine days out from Yokohama
the Aragonia was boarded by a heavy
sea, which carried, away a portion of
her taffrall and her auxiliary steering
gear. Her engine-room and a number of
staterooms were flooded. The lights went
out, and the Chinese crew caused consid

Portland Hesitates to Extend Invi
tation to Mr. Fairbanks.
Until the Astoria Chamber of Commerce
communicates Its -wishes as to Portland
participating in the entertainment of Vice-
President Fairbanks, the Portland Com

direction. The Vloe-Presldent has ac
cepted an :lnvttatlon from the business
men of Astoria to be their guest on the
occasion of his vlait to the Coast to at.
tend the National convention of the Chris
tian Endeavor Society at Seatttle.
Tom Richardson, manager of tha Com
mercial Club, said yesterday that though
Portland woujd like to entertain Mr. Fair
banks on his way to and from Astoria, It
would depend entirely upon the wishes of
the Astoria people. He added that
Portland has no desire to interfere or
"butt in" when sister cities have under
taken to entertain prominent people.
To extend an invitation at this time to
Mr. Fairbanks without first obtaining
from Astoria an expression of their
wishes would be, he Bald, unfair to a

SPLENDID APRIL TONIC.
This is known as "Blood-Cleaning
Time," especially among the
older folks, who always take
something during this month to
clean tne blood of Impurities and
build it up.
The following is the recipe aa
given by a well-known authority,
and anyone can prepare It at
Fluid Extract Dandelion one
half ounce. Compound Kargon
on ounce. Compound Syrup Sar
saparllla three ounces.
Get these simple Ingredients
from any good pharmacy and
mix by shaking well in a bottle.
The dose is one teaapoonf ul after
meals and at bedtime.
Everybody should take some
thing to help the blood, which
becomes impoverished and al
most sour after the winter sea
son, especially those who are
subject to Rheumatism, Catarrh,
Kidney and Bladder trouble.
It is said that one week's use
of this mixture will clear the
skin of sores, pimples or boils.
This is sound, healthy advice,
which will be appreciated by
the slab work for the club Morris and
Newman. The team has been weakened
by the withdrawal of two of its men to
the Tri-City League. Chappie Stockton,
who was considered one of the best
catchers in the club, together with Asher

them next Saturday. The strength of the

reports among the baseball fans. It can be
taken for granted that the college boys
will find their equal in the clubmen.
NO SESSION UNTIL FRIDAY
Judge Wolverton Excuses Federal
Grand Jury Venire Until Then.
There will be no session of the new
Federal grand Jury until Friday morn
ing. Yesterday morning the 60 men
who had been summoned to appear at
10 o'clock, were. on hand, but owing to
the sessions of the Interstate Com
merce Commission, Judge Wolverton
excused the venire until Friday. After
the adjournment Judge Wolverton and
United States Attorney, W. C. Bristol,
were besieged by a number of the
Jurors summoned, who pleaded to be
excused from Jury duty. Sickness in
the family, business pressure and oth
er excuses were offered, with the re
sult that the following citizens who
had been summoned were excused:
J. W. Allen, Rlckreall; H. L. Bush,
Airlle; Herbert Bradley, Multnomah;
R. M. Alcorn, Pendleton; W. H. Com

River, and Frank Cook, Astoria; J. A.
Griffin, Astoria; Q. Barker, Oak Creek;
George Hoffman, Portland; William
Ainslee, Salem, and F. W. Epplnger,
The postponement of convening the
grand Jury has greatly handicapped
the work of the United States District
Attorney's office, for on Friday the G.
I Chapman habeas corpus case will be
heard. Chapman is the bookkeeper
of the Barber Lumber Company, who
refused to produce the books of the
company before an Idaho Federal
grand Jury, when ordered to do so.
The case -will be heard before Judge
Gilbert, and Mr. Bristol will make the
argument for the Government. The
outcome of the Chapman case will be
watched with a great deal of interest
by the legal fraternity, not only of
Oregon, but of Idaho as well. Mr.
Bristol has had experience with Just
such another case, when a defendant,
Collins, who was before him, refused
to testify. He made Collins talk and
he is of the opinion that he will win

Architect F. B. Gibson was present and
offered some suggestions regarding a
plan of such a building as would be
needed for the lodges, library and the
Branch Y. M. C A., all of which will
have to be provided for in the combina
tion building. It wHl be essentially and
strictly a club building, and no space will
be reserved for stores, according to pres
ent plans. Mr.t Gibson suggested that the
basement be made the first floor, and that
it be built so that H would extend about
four feet above the ground, for the ad
mission of light. In this part of the
building could be placed the Y. M. C. A.
department, with its gymnasium and
reading room. Possibly also the branch
library, which now occupies a building on
Umatilla avenue, could also have its quar
ters in the basement. The lodge hall' and
banq-uet hall would be on the second floor.
There are several organizations needing
halls, either together or separately. At
present there Is no Masonic lodge In Sell

lodge there is being considered, and a

I do not wish people to judge my work
merely upon what I say about it. I want
them to note the evidences to prove my
statements correct. The proof of a physi
cian's ability is to be found in the results
he obtains, and though I am not at liberty
to supply individual names of patients as
references, the marks of superior skill and
service are so prominent and conspicuous
as to render my doing so unnecessary. Six
teen years of success and constant growth
of practice is certainly a practical demon
stration that argues the merit of my work.
Estimate for yourself my volume of prao

Western specialists. Is there the slightest
probability that if unable to back up all my
