Old Hand Explains..
CHICAGO, July 30. (Special.) The
Board of Trade has taught the farmer
ilots of things and now the farmer will
Ipay his debt of gratitude. Of all arts' that

The farmer is going to give lessons in

at less than $1 a bushel and to stop sell

The machinery of the little scheme
whereby the country cousin sits in at
the big game Is simple. For $130 a far
mer can build a steeel tank that will
hold 2000 bushels of wheat. Throughout
the Northwest these tanks, it is as
serted, are growing like mushrooms.
These farmers have decided to hold out
for minimum dollar wheat.
"Traders," said Mr. Windle, "who ex
pect to get wheat for less than $1 will
find they are disappointed. They will
noon realize that a late Spring and de
layed threshing are not the causes for
the rise In the price of wheat. They will
find that short crops are not the cause
of the slow primary movement of wheat,
Visible Supply Short.
"I have been all over the entire wheat
district, from Manitoba to Texas. Texas
has no wheat. Oklahoma has about 6,
000.000 bushels, Kansas about 4,000,000, Ne
braska about 60 per cent of last year's
crop, Minnesota about the same propor
tion, while in the Dakotas they will be
lucky If they get half a crop. In North
Dakota they will be lucky if the frost
does not get most of it."
GET BOTH CONVENTIONS
Chicago Republicans and Democrats
Unite and Secure the Cash.
CHICAGO. July 30. (Special.) The ef
fort to obtain the Republican and Demo
cratic National Conventions for Chicago
next year has resulted in such a degree
of harmony that the financial end of the
enterprise for both conventions probably
will be handled by the Republican Com
mittee. This was practically agreed
upon today at a meeting of the Hamilton
Club Committee on finance, having the
subject In hand.
Reports Bhdwed that sufficient money
5s in sight to finance the two conventions.
The Joining of the money end In the con
vention venture was accomplished by add
ing to the membership of the Republican
Committee finance organization.
PROHIBITION LAW PASSED
Georgia Senate Adopts It and Gov
ernor AV111 Sign It.
ATLANTA. Ga., July 30. The Harder
mann-Covlngton Prohibition bill passed by
the Georgia Senate some days ago was
adopted by the House this evening by a
vote of 139 to 39. Two sections were added
to the bill which will necessitate its going
back to the Senate for concurrence, of
which there is no doubt, and the bill then
will go to Governor Hoke Smith for his
signature, which has been practically
pledged, and prohibition will become a
law in Georgia.

a. halt hours after the collision. The lashing
were Dot cut until the Ban Pedro had a list o
about 45 degrees, when the top of the uoper
house touched the water. The mainmast car
ried away on a level with the top of the amoks
stack. The pressure of the deck load on the
rlgfrtng caused the mast to go over. The 6an

fill. At that time the main deck was under
about a foot of water, which reached the top
of the main deckhouse and swept the rooms.
One of the lifeboats from the Columbia, con
taining about nine people, pulled up near us.
There was an officer In the stern, his hat and
coat on, who asked that we take his passen
gers aboard. I refused. There, have been
statements In the press that, had I taken the
passengers from the lifeboat, the boat could
hive saved more people. The boat could easily
have held 25, but there were only nine In It.
At the same time there was another of the
Columbia's boats near by containing only four
Survivors Safer In Boats.
I thought that the commander of the boat
containing nine was the captain. I asked him
who he was and found that he was the third
mate. Among other things he asked for my
first mate, saying that he wanted to ret to
Shelter Cove and would get a warship to the
scene in six hours. He spoke very peculiarly,
but I was going to send my first mate with
him when we sighted a northbound steamer
about two or three miles away and the first
mate tried to chase her in the boat, but he
could not attract her attention.
I believe the boat was the Watson. I do
not understand why she did not sight us, as
she showed up very plainly to us.
"Did you refuse to take more people on
board?" asked Captain Bermingham.
"I did not refuse," Captain Hansen re
plied, "but I told them I thought they
were safer In the boats than on the upper
decks of the San Pedro. There was dan
ger that the metal boats would be stove
in if they came too near the flotlng

Mate Schaube, of the San Pedro, created
some amusement by Insisting that he was
instrumental In saving only 41 persons,
refusing to take credit for the nine he
took from the Columbia's boat.
"They had already been saved," he said
deprecatlngly, when Captain Bermingham
was trying to count how many lives he
had to his credit.
Boats Only Partly Loaded.
"I saw a statement in the press." said
Captain Hansen, "in which Hawee was
quoted as saying that had. he been able
to place his passengers on the San Pedro,
he could have saved many more. Why
didn't he take them when he had a
chance? He could have carried 20 or
more In his boat. Another of the Colum
bia's boats' only had four In it."
The crew of the San Pedro Is still in
Eureka, but is expected to reach this
port in a day or two, and Captain Ber
mingham adjourned the hearing until
Thursday afternoon, In the hope that it
will have arrived in the meantime.
FINAL LIST OF THE MISSING
Company Makes Corrected Total 77..
Bodies Cannot Be Recovered.
List of Lost Passengers.
SAN FRANCISCO, July 30. The San
Francisco & Portland Steamship Com
pany's official corrected list, furnished
to the Associated Press this evening
shows that of the 1S9 passengers carried
by the steamer Columbia 66 are missing
and in all probability were drowned.
Fifty-nine of these were cabin passengers
and seven had taken steerage berths.
Only 11 of tne 59 members of the crew
are now missing. This revision brings
the total number of missing, passengers
and crew, to 77. There were 248 souls on
the Columbia when she collided with the
San Pedro at 12:22 o'clock Sunday morn
ing, July 21.
Following is the corrected list furnished
by the steamship company. In not every
case is the place of residence of the miss
ing passenger known. In such cases the
name is given of the place where was
purchased the railroad ticket on which
steamer transportation on the Columbia
from San Francisco to Portland was Is
sued. It is believed that the errors caused
in the earlier lists of missing and survi
vors by the giving of incorrect names

rected in the following list: Passengers

Bodies Penned in Wreck.
It is the consensus of opinion among
wreckers and seafaring men that none of
the bodies of the drowned passengers
and crew ever will be recovered. Should
any be washed up on the Mendocino
Coast, the inaccessibility of that unfre
quented stretch would make their re
covery Improbable. It Is thought that.
Inasmuch as the Columbia turned com
pletely over as she went down, many of
the unhappy victims are held fast in her
wreckage and hull.
FOREST FIRE IS RAGING
Timber in Washington Forest Re
serve in Flames.
TACOMA, Wash., July 31. A Belllng
ham special to the Ledger says:
"A fire, which threatens to do thousands
of dollars' worth of damage, is raging in
the timber north of Birdview, Skagit
County, and unless a soaking rain comes
soon millions of feet of standing timber
will be burned. This fire has been burn
ing for some days, and now presents a
front of fire four miles wide, and is rap
idly sweeping up from the valley of the
Skagit River northward and nothing but
rain will prevent its traveling across the
divide to the South Fork of the Nooksack,
a distance of eight miles."
Glacier reports the Government forest
rangers have the fire in the forest reserve
under control. ,

Brings to Date.
TOTAL NOW $1,484,845,280
Makes Allowances for Every Pos
sible Cause of Error No Other
Country Can as Closely
Estimate Its Stock.
WASHINGTON. July 31. Tho retiring
Director of the Mint, George E. Robert
has for a number of years been conduct
ing an Inquiry for the purpose of verify
ing the Treasury estimates of the stock
of gold In the United States or of tracing
errors therein, and today gave out tho
following summary of his conclusions:
"For a number of years, the Treasury
estimates of the stock of gold in the Unit
ed States have been questioned by com
petent students, who have believed them
to be high. The amounts reported to be
in the Treasury and in National banks
are not disputed, but the large residue
assumed to be in other banks and in
circulation Is considered a doubtful Quan
tity. "Since 1873, the coinage of the mints and
the imports of United States coin have
been regularly added and the exports of
United States coin and an allowance for
the amount consumed Industrially have
been regularly deducted. By this method
the estimate has been built up from year
to year to the totals used.
"The possible sources of error, as these
estimates are carried along, are three,
"First Errors in " Customs-Houses of
foreign Imports and exports.
"Second Errors In estimating the in
"Third The unrecorded movement of
coin In and out of the country in the im
mediate possession of travelers."
Mr. Roberts particularizes the errors
which may have occurred under these
several heads, and sums them up as fol
lows: "Summing up the deductions of J35,000,
000 prior to 18S0, $30,000,000 In customs en
tries, $25,000,000 for the Canadian move
ment. J25.000.000 for industrial consumption
and $20,000,000 for the unrecorded exports,
a total of $135,000,000 is reached. This sum
taken from amount in other banks and in
circulation on June 30, 1906, would leave
that estimate at $223,733,381. Bringing the
calculation down to June 1. 1307, and mak
ing the deductions, gives a total stock of
gold coin and bullion (in the mints) of
$1,484,845,280. of which $1,109,453,330 is held
by the Treasury and National banks.
"It is believed these are all the deduc
tions that are warranted by a careful
review of the facts. In no other country
of the world can so large a percentage of
the estimated stock of standard, money
be definitely located." ,
SEW NAVAL STATIOX NEEDED
High Officials Coining to Study
Question on Facific.
WASHINGTON, July SO. It is prob
able that another naval station will be
created upon the Pacific Coast, as the
result of the forthcoming visit there of
Admiral Capps, chief naval constructor
of the Navy, and Admiral Cowles, chief
of the equipment bureau. The former left
Washington today for New York, where
he will be Joined by Admiral Cowles, and
they . will go together to the Pacific
Coast to make a thorough Inspection
of the yards and stations on that Coast,
and report upon the future needs of the
Navy In that quarter.
Admiral Holllday, chief of the bureau
of yards and docks, will follow these two
officers to San Francisco on a similar
errand. This will Involve a very careful
examination of the Mare Island Navy
Yard and that at Bremerton,' . The re
sources of the two Navy-Yards, which
are the only ones on. a 2000-mile stretch
of shore line, are scarcely sufficient to
make even temporary repairs and dock
ings that will be required by Admiral
Evans' battleship fleet If it makes only
a temporary visit to the Coast. Hence

the Inspection of these yards will prob

The difficulty of procuring skilled la
bor in these yards, and especially at
Bremerton, will also be considered with
a view to making the conditions more at
tractive to such labor. If by no other
means than by assuring the men of con
tinuous employment at good wages.
But from a naval point of view of
more interest is the proposition to estab
lish a naval station at San Diego, Cal.,
which will be examined from all points
of view by the visiting Admirals. The
harbor at this point possesses superior
advantages as a naval anchorage. There
are good railroad connections, assuring
abundant coal supplies overland If water
communication is cut off in war time,
and the harbor can eas.,y be made im
pregnable. The distance of San Diego southward
from San Francisco and upon the same
line with the projected Panama canal,
would also make It an advantageous
coaling point. Of course, the consent of
Congress would be necessary to render
effective Its selection.
NEARLY ALL BECOME BRITISH
American Settlers in Canada Get
WASHINGTON, D. C. July 30. Accord
ing to the complete returns of naturali
zation for 1$06. Consul-General Church
Howe, of Montreal, reports that a very
large proportion of the immigrants arriv
ing in Canada are taking the oath of al
legiance. Mr. Howe furnishes these sta
tistics: During the year the naturalization to
taled 10,242, as compared with 6632 for the
previous year, an increase of 3610. The
naturalization act requires three years'
residence in the Dominion before papers
of citizenship can be taken out. Taking
into consideration the fact that only the
heads of families and young men over 21
years of age of foreign birth need to take
the oath of allegiance, the total of 10,242
for last year probably represents a foreign
immigration of 30,000 to 40,000. And since
three years' residence Is required, it will
be seen that almost the entire foreign
immigration of 1903 has now become nat
uralized by law.
The total naturalizations of Immigrants
from the United States were 3S38, which,
compared with immigration figures of
1902-3, show that nearly all the American
male settlers in the West are taking the
oath of allegiance to the British crown.
There is a large Increase in Immigra
tion to this country from the British Isles.
The total immigration for the month of
April was 44,051, as compared with 35,313
for April of last year, an increase of 25
per cent. For the ten months, July 1 to
April 30, the immigration was 168,718, as
compared with 124,031 for the correspond
ing months of the fiscal year, an Increase
of 4687, or 36 per cent.
NATIONALISTS HAVE WON
First Returns from Philippine Elec
tion Show Independence Strong.
MANILA, July 30. The independent
factions who united in the campaign
under the name of Nationalists, appear
to have won the general election of dele
gates to the first Philippine Assembly,
held throughout the Islands today. In
complete returns from 60 out of 80 dis
tricts show that 81 Nationalists were
elected, 10 Progressives, 8 Independent
candidates and 1 Catholic. In Manila the
Nationalists won by a large majority in
both districts. Dqtpmador Gomez claims
the election In tti first district in the
city, while Justo Lakban contests the
election of both Independent candidates.
It probably will be 10 days to two weeks
