Steamers Rose City and Bay
City to Have Telegraphic
COMMUNICATE WITH LAND
Fortland-San Francisco Uners Will
Be Able to Exchange With
Shore Stations Throughout
Voyage Shipping Xews.
' Wireless telegraph apparatus will be
placed on board the new steamships Rose
City and Bay City, which will operate
betwen San Francisco and Portland for
the San Francisco & Portland Steamship
Company. Official information to this
effect was given out yesterday. When the
first of the vessels goes into service on
the line she will be prepared to receive
messages from all points on the Coast
where there are wireless stations.
The Rose City and the Bay City were
recently purchased by Mr. Scherwtn for
service between San Francisco and Port
land. They were then known as the
steamships Lawton and Kansas City. The
latter was a Morgan line boat and
operated between New York and Savan
nah. The Lawton was purchased from
the Government and had formerly ben
used as a transport. The names of the
two ships have been ordered changed to
the Rose City and the Bay City.
At present the only merchant vessel on
the Coast having wireless telegraph equip
ment is the Pacific Coast Company's
steamer President. She is operating be
twen San Francisco and Seattle. The
Governor, now en route to the Coast from
the Bast, is also so equipped.
The Federal Government has established
wireless stations at Flattery, North Head,
Cape Blanco and Point Reyes. For a
vessel at sea it is a comparatively easy
matter to make a connection with one of
these stations. On the occasion of the
trip of the steamship President to Nome,
a message was received by the operator
at North Head when the vessel was 2300
miles to the northwest. One was recently
sent from San Francisco to a Government
vessel some 600 miles to the westward.
To the shipping interests and to the Gov
ernment, the placing of wireless apparatus
on all steamships Is a matter of the
TURNS TURTLE AT HER DOCK
Steamer Acapulco Capsizes in San
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 26. The steam
ship Acapulco of the Pacific Mall
Steamship Company's Panama line, which
was to have sailed for An con and way
ports at S o'clock this afternoon, turned
turtle at her dock at the foot of Brannon
street at 12:45 P. M. as she was taking
on coal for the passage. Although sev
eral lives were endangered no one was
Neither Captain Trask, the master of
the vessel, nor the officials of the com
pany have given any explanation of the
mishap, but the supposition Is that the
coal was improperly stowed.
Without warning the Acupulco listed
suddenly to starboard and within IS
minutes showed her keel. A dozen of the
engine-room force and steward's hands
were below. As they feit the ship go over
they scrambled up ladders and com
panlonways, and though a number of
them were caught In the Inrush of water
none was hurt. Several were compelled
to swim. As the vessel filled she partial
ly righted herself and presently lay easy
on her starboard side, the sea covering
her main deck to a depth of from two
to six feet.
Steam had not been gotten up, as the
sailing time had been changed, from 1
to 5 o'clock and was four hours off. The
fires that had been started under the
boilers were drawn by the engine crew
while the vessel was listing and all danger
of an explosion was averted. A lot of
personal baggage was ruined and a con
siderable part of the cargo of general
stores will be a loss.
Mr. ' ' Frye, assistant to President
Schwerln of the Pacific Mail Company,
said he could make no announcement of a
substitute sailing because no other ship
The Acapulco has a gross tonnage of
2572, net 1750, Is 290 feet long, has a
breadth of 40 feet and a depth of 20 feet.
She was built in 1873 at Wilmington, Bel.
STEAMER TELEPHONE WINS
Beats' Telegraph in Hot Race to
Mouth of Willamette.
The steamers Telephone and Tele
graph tried conclusions In the Wil
lamette River yesterday morning, with
the result that the former vessel en
tered the Columbia with a broom bent
to the top of the Jackstaff. The Tele
phone rounded the Willamette River
light several boat lengths ahead of the
Telegraph. There was considerable
excitement and passengers and crew of
each steamer cheered lustily.
After passing the harbor limits the
fun began. The Telegraph was three
boat lengths ahead. When abreast the
Union OH dock the boats were neck-and-neck
and logging off better than
20 miles an hour. At Linnton the Tel
ephone was half a length ahead but
the suction held the smaller steamer
and it was Impossible for the Tele
phone to increase the lead until the
deep water at Gillihan's was reacted.
There has been considerable rivalry
between the crews of the respective
steamers regarding which was the
faster boat. A tryout had never been
made. Friday the Telephone was un
able to keep steam on account of bad
coal, and the Telegraph people taunted
them over their slowness. A race was
framed up for yesterday, and it was
one of the best ever seen in the Wil
lamette. FUMIGATE THE COSTA RICA
Quarantine Officers Begin Cam
paign Against Rats on Boats.
The steamship Costa Rica, Captain
Mason, which arrived In from San
Francisco Saturday night, finished dis
charging yesterday afternoon, and, un
der a recent ruling of the medical de
partment, was fumigated. The work
was conducted under the personal su
pervision of the quarantine doctor
from the station at the mouth of the
Bubonic plague, which recently de
veloped in San Francisco, Is the cause
or the cleansing of all vessels from
the Infected port. Until further orders
are received, each steamer operating1
between the Bay City and Portland or
Puget Sound ports will be fumigated
once each month.
Rats are the principal carriers of
disease germs, and It is the rodents
which the Government officials desire
to exterminate. All hatches are close'd
down and sulphurous compounds are
burned in the hold.
HOMEWARD BOUND IN COAIi
Old Bark Sails for Columbia River
From Newcastle, N. S. W.
The old American bark Homeward
Bound was reported yesterday as sail
ing from Newcastle, N. S. W., for the
Columbia River with a cargo of coal.
The vessel was previously reported as
being under charter for San Francisco.
The Homeward Bound is a steel ves
sel, and was built in Belfast, Ireland,
in 1885. During the time she has been
afloat she has had a varied career.
She first flew the flag of Great Britain
and was full rigged. She was chris
tened the Zemlnder. Later she was
sold to the Germans and renamed the
Gildemeister. The third change of
flag found her named the Homeward
Bound. She is of 1987 net tons burden
and is a big carrier.

WHIPPING CONVICT WRONG
Why Was Albrecht, an Incorrigible,'
Made a Trusty? Discipline Is
Needed at Salem Penitentiary,
Says This Writer.
PORTLAND, Or., Aug. 26. (To the
Editor.) Friday morning I was very
much interested In the letter from
Governor Chamberlain published in
The Oregonian, headed, "Lashing a Bad
Convict." I also read carefully the Gov
ernor's interview in the Sunday's previous
Issue In which he defends flogging as
a punishment for escaped convicts on
their recapture. The interview and re
port published Friday are valuable in
giving to the people of the etate facts
that they were entitled to, but that
they were not familiar with concerning
the state prison at Salem. The peo
ple should rejoice that the victim of
the flogging did not swoon, as at first
reported, also that a lesser number of
lashes were administered than the
Salem correspondent claimed. These
reductions from the first report re
lieve the state of a portion of the dis
grace brought upon it by the whipping
In my article in The Oregonian last
Monday morning I took the position
that the responsibility of holding crim
inals in prison rested on the prison
officials themselves. In this position
I seem to be at Issue with Governor
Chamberlain, but who can read his
Interview and report and be satisfied
with the prison management at Salem?
Let us examine the facts in the case
laid before the people by the Governor.
He says Albrecht was a trusty. A
trusty Is a convict who, by his record,
character, conduct and manifested desire
for moral improvement has proven him
self trustworthy. He Is one In whom the
warden has a right to feel that much
more than the average confidence can
be safely reposed.
In the Governor's Interview last Sun
day, ho says In referring to Albrecht,
"He Is absolutely incorrigible." Dic
tionaries define an incorrigible' as a
convict "bad beyond correction or re
form." He Is one who, by his record,
character, conduct, etc., has shown that
he Is not trustworthy. He is a hard
ened criminal, one who has adopted
crime as his profession. He Is ex
actly the opposite type of man that the
trusty is. A trusty Is a convict to
whom special privileges are given on
account of his good behavior and other
characteristics that I have mentioned.
An incorrigible convict Is one to whom
special privileges can never safely be
given. Now will Governor Cham
berlain or the Warden at the prison
kindly Inform us why the trusties are
selected from the lncorriglbles In the
prison at Salem? Must a convict there
become an Incorrigible before he is
qualified to be a trusty?
It was my experience to hold a po
sition In a state prison in the East a
number of years and I have been In
terested in prison reform where It Is
possible for the past 15 years, and I
have had the satisfaction of knowing
quite a large number of young men
who have been reclaimed to society
after they had served one or more
terms, and became good citizens. But
they had adopted a new life-purpose
and manifested a desire to reform.
But that Is not the case with hardened
criminals and no possible excuse can
be given on the part of prison of
ficials for slackening their vigilance
over Incorrigible convicts. The Gov
ernor says. In referring to the man
agement of the prison at Salem, that
he challenges comparison with the con
duct of any similar Institution In the
United States. In reply, I would say
that he will have difficulty In finding
a prison between Oregon and the state
of Maine where the flogging system
Is In vogue, with the possible excep
tion of Delaware, and he cannot point
to another prison. Including Dela
ware's, where the trusties are selected
from the Incorrigible convicts.
He explains matters In the case of
Albrecht as follows:
"At the time of his escape he was a
trusty and when he was made such
he was told if he violated his promise
not to attempt to escape, his -punishment
would be flogging. He accepted
the conditions Imposed and brought
his punishment on himself , by violating
What stronger indictment could be
drawn against the management of a
state prison than these words of the
Governor? Here custodians of a crim
inal who is "absolutely incorrigible"
enter into an agreement or compact
with the convict to make him a
"trusty" with the understanding that
if he attempts to escape he will be
whipped. If recaptured. And this Is
what is called prison discliplne at Sa
lem. Is there a prison disciplinarian In
the United States or anywhere else who
ever heard ' of such a farce as this?
How could a system of discipline be
weaker or how could management be
The chief object of criminal laws is
to restrain the vicious and protect the
Innocent. In a number of states ha
bltual criminal laws have been enacted
for the purpose of removing from so
ciety, once for all, the incorrigible or
habitual criminal. In Illinois, and a
number of other states, the third sen
tence to the state prison Is a life term,
no matter what the felony is. Such
laws seem to be a wise method of
dealing with persistent lawbreakers.
They certainly seem like greater safe
guards thrown around society than to
make trusties out of the very class of
offenders that habitual criminal acts
are designed to restrain.
It seems from the report published
that the warden did not whip Albrecht.
He only gave him a few complimentary
lashes to show the deputy warden what
part of the anatomy Is impervious to
pain. This discovery of the warden's
will be of Inestimable value to science,
especially to the medical profession.
Hereafter, when a doctor finds that an
operation on a patient Is necessary, if
It can be performed above the shoul
ders no anaesthetic will be required.
Some of our people have ruthlessly
scoffed at the Christian Science cult
for clinging to the delusion that all
pain Is mortal error. But the warden
of the prison at Salem does not claim
It is mortal error unless it occurs
"above the shoulders." It is now evi
dent that Albrecht's escape was made
possible by the withdrawal of the vig
ilance that should have been kept over
him after the prison officials knew that
he was an Incorrigible convict. The
fault was with the officials. They are
the ones responsible for the escape.
They are the ones who should be dis
ciplined. Flogging is a relic of barbarism. It
belongs to the Dark Ages and not to
twentieth century civilization or hu
manity. It arouses all the lowest bru
tal Instincts In a man to lay the lash
on the bare back of a human being. It
should be abolished once for all. It is
a disgrace to the state and to the coun
try. It should never again be permit
ted to mar the fair name of Oregon or
tho United States. W. W. CUTLER.
MORE LIGHT ON FLOGGING
PRISONERS' AID OFFICIAL OX
Holds That System In Vogue at Pen
itentiary Is Wrong, but Indorses
PORTLAND, Aug. 24. (To the Editor.)
The Oregon Prisoners Aid Society requests

E. W. St. Pierre, as parole office for the
prison and superintendent of the society. Is
In a position to ascertain the truth of the ,
charges In the Albrecht case. We feel that
hls correspondence should be given to the
public In Justice to the Governor, the offi

clety Is trying to do.
MILLIE 33. TRUMBULL, Secretary. ,
PORTLAND, Or., Aug. 17. Rev. B. W. St.
Pierre, Salem, Or. Dear Sir and Friend: I
Inclose clipping taken from this morning's
Oregonian. The charges contained In this
article are of so grave a nature that I think
that they thould receive the prompt atten
tion of this society. I do not for a moment
think that these allegations are true, but
yet they should be investigated and should
not remain unrefuted.
Will you kindly make an Investigation of
the matter, and greatly oblige? Yours very
truly, M. GOODMAN, Director.
Investigate) Flogging; Case.
SALEM, Or., Aug. 22. My Dear Mr. Good
man: Your letter of Inquiry relative to the
recent flogging of Hugo Albrecht at the
penitentiary was duly received, and I an
Bwer now at the earliest opportunity after
as careful investigation of the case as I
could give the matter.
I think the question of the advisability or
Inadvisability of flogging at all, for any
reason whatsoever, had better not be dis
cussed here by me. There are, of course,
differences of opinion about the matter, and
whereas you and I would probably find
no difficulty In agreeing, we should allow
others the right to differ from us on the
policy. I realize how almost Impossible it
Is for men to concede this right where
feelings are very strongly engaged, but, nev
ertheless, I have found myself placed where
my feelings have had to be restrained at all
It Is wrong to Jump in and unqualifiedly
condemn earnest, good men, especially when
uch are placed where they have ample
opportunity to learn practically of things
beyend my own experience. And it must
be. recognised that we have good men in
charge of our penitentiary. And they, so
Tar, have seen their way clear to abolish
flogging In all cases excepting only where a
trusty runs away after having been turned
out and placed on his honor, with the distinct
understanding that if he breaks his word
he will be flogged.
The writer, who claims' that the guard
In charge of the prisoner, and not the
prisoner, is responsible and should be pun
ished, did not understand the matter. In all
cases where prisoners are not on the trusty
force, his views would hold good; but in the
case of the trusty, you see, his views are
Incorrect, and his point Is not well taken.
Another incorrect assertion In the pub
lic press is the reference to the prisoner's
physical condition. Albrecht Is not a crip
ple, as stated; he weighs 102 pounds, and Is
a rugged fellow. Neither can It be said
of him that he is mentally Incompetent.
The fact that the Judge sent him here and
not to the asylum refutes this charge- I
have known him for years, first at the
reform school and since his Incarceration
at the penitentiary, and I can assure you
that, while he Is not exactly bright, neither
is he In any way Idiotic as charged. He Is
the average lad.
Another error is the charge published In
the press as to the degree of punishment
Inflicted, the claim being that 48 lashes
were administered. Only 18 blows were
struck In all. One eye-witness says 17,
but the warden says he thinks 18 lashes
was given. That the warden added 23
lashes to his deputy's 25 is also not true.
The warden struck six or 7 blows, and only
because he was afraid that the deputy, who
was new at the duty, was unwittingly ex
posing the victim to some risk through
striking too low, and not at all in the spirit
of anger, as charged by the accuser.
Did Not Faint Away.
Albrecht, according to the testimony of
all who are .In a position to speak under
standing on the matter, did not show the
least sign of swooning. Immediately on
being released he walked firmly to the dis
pensary, where, as Is customary, his shoul
ders were salved. He worked all that day,
and has been at work ever since, excepting
one half a day. when he was laid off on
account of a slight headache, in no wise
attributable to his punishment.
This is. If I mistake not, the third flog
ging under the -present management. In
every case due to the same cause break
ing parole for the trusty system is prac
tically that. Governor Chamberlain ex
pressly said, on many occasions, at least
once In my hearing, that prisoners breaking
their paroles were flogged. If anything Is
to be eald. It should be directed against the
system, and not against this isolated In
stance of It. Let us be fair-minded in
cur attitude. I should very much prefer
that the accuser, who merely signs himself
"Observer," signed his name to what he
has to say.
Finally, this administration has been re
peatedly accused of too much leniency In
dealing with prisoners. This is the first
time, as far as I know, that anyone has
oome out with a charge of cruelty. I
should like very much to escort anyone in
terested in prison reform through the prison
and hear what they have to suggest to bet
ter conditions here. I am probably as
much of an enthusiast as anyone living on
the question, and I admit that I am almost
Praise Prison Officials.
. Our present warden is to me a marvel of
patience, gentleness and devotion to the in
terests of the prisoners. Witness the band,
the orchestra, the ball field, the prison pa
per, the library, etc. I say the warden, but
I might as well say the superintendent
also, as none of these things
could be done without his in
dorsement. If I should go on telling
all that Is being and has been done for the
prison, I might be charged with flattery,
and yet It is all true, as anyone taking
the trouble to find out for himself will
testify. There is discipline strict discipline
that we must have; but it is never for
gotten that the prisoners are human be
ings, and that prisons are for reform as well
as for punishment.
In conclusion, the cause for which Al
brecht was flogged was not the one as
signed, but the breaking of his word when
he agreed that he would take a flogging
If he were disloyal to It. Also he Is not
a cripple or an Idiotic fellow, but robust
and the average In mentality. Also he was
not flogged excessively, or in a spirit of
anger or revenge. He did not swoon.
Personally, I am with those who do not
believe In flogging, but being acquainted
with the present administration of the
prison, I can assert that discipline, even of
this harsh character, as all other kinds of
discipline, is administered conscientiously,
and all with the purpose of benefitting.

Whenever a sore or ulcer refuses to heal it is because the blood 13 infect
ed with poisonous germs or some old blood taint which corrupts and pollutes
the circulation. Nothing is more trying than a non-healing, chronic old
ulcer. The very fact that it resists all external applications, and ordinary
treatments, is good reason for alarm, for the same germ which produces
cancerous ulcers is back of every old sore, and especially is this true if the
trouble be from any inherited taint. Surface treatment cannot reach the
trouble the blood is at fault and must be purified before a cure can be hoped
for. In S. S. S. will be found a remedy for sores and ulcers of every kind.
It is a perfect blood purifier one that goes directly into the circulation and
promptly cleanses it of all impurities, poisons and taints. The ulcer can
never heal while the blood discharges into it the noxious matter with which
it is infected, but when S. S. S. has rid the blood of this cause and freshened
and built up the circulation the sore will heal naturally, and of its own ac
cord. S. S. S. begins at the bottom and heals the place as it should be
healed and makes a permanent and lasting cure. Book on Sores and Ulcers
and any special medical advice desired will be sent free to all who write.

I do not appeal especially to the man
seeking the cheapest cure In asking
such a low fee as $10 for the cure of any
uncomplicated case of Male Disorders,
but I want to reach all men who object
to paying the exorbitant fees heretofore
charged by specialists. My methods In
sure Quick results, or I would have to
charge more for my time. The outcome
in every case undertaken Is certain, or
I could not hold out the proposition to
effect the cure before asking; the fee.
Every Promise Fulfilled
I could not continue In business year
after year treating thousands of cases
annually with my business integrity
absolutely unlmpeached. unless I carried
out to the letter every promise made
my patients. I am careful never to
undertake cases that hove gone beyond
help. I do not charge for the first ex
amination of patients, and always de
termine to my absolute satisfaction that
health and strength can be restored in
every case. Then I bring every advan
tage of my 2!. years' study and experi
ence Into action to clear that man of
disease, to undo the Injury of excesses
or abuse, and build up the latent forces
which have run down.
Men and Men Only
My practice In limited to the disorders
of the male, and Is further confined to
these special and ohronlc affections of
the pelvic tract. These include Sperma
torrhoea, Ixmt Vitality. Varicocele,
Stricture. Hydrocele, Contracted Disor
ders, Contagious Blood Poison. Bladder
and Kidney Diseases. I have taken up
these ailments especially, because thou
sands of lives are ruined and thousands
of men sre not what they should be,
because they are held down by chronic
weakness, which the average practicing
physician does not understand and usu
ally tries to make light of by telling the
patient that nature will soon repair the
waste. But the drains continue until
the vital force Is napped from the body
and both the mental and physical struc
tures of the body collapse.
I Have the Help You Need
T find the cause of the trouble first,
and direct treatment to that always.
My aim Is never to hide the symptoms,
but to cure the ailment completely and
thoroughly. My success is based on
these methods, which must sooner or
later be applied to your case.

ing In strength, no one knows what the
