Beats Chas. R. Spencer to The
Dalles After an Excit
CLOSE RUN TO VANCOUVER
Vessels Icave Portland Together and
Spencer Reaches Barracks Town
a liength Ahead The Gatzert
Makes Record Round Trip-
' The steamer Bailey Gataert. of the Reg
ulator Line, Captain Fred Sherman, land
ed at The Dalles at 2:32 o'clock yesterday
afternoon, IS minutes in advance of the
steamer Charles R. Spencer, Captain
Spencer, after one of the fastest pas
sages and one of the hottest contested
races In the history of steamnoating on
the Willamette and Columbia Rivers. The
return trip of the Gatzert was made in
record time, for she left The Dalles at
2:50 and tied up at her dock In Portland
at 8:06, making her time for the round
trip 13 hours and 6 minutes.
Both vessels left their docks at 7 o'clock
in the morning and prqccedod through
the harbor under double slow bell, the
Spencer leading. ' The Steel bridge was
passed at 7:W and both craft were sa
luted by the bridge tender. Thirteen min
utes later the vessels passed the flour
mill and the fun began. The Spencer
maintained a lead of half a boat length
until I.innton was reached, when the
Gatzert picked up and whistled to pass.
The Spencer was on the inside and had
the right of way. At the mouth of the
river she made the turn into the Co
lumbia closer to the Oregon shore and
forged ahead for three boat lengths. The
Gatzert picked up a little on the stretch
to Vancouver and the Spencer landed
Kach craft picked up a few passengers
and the race was renewed. The Spencer
was on the dock side and was compelled
to back out. Captain Sherman took ad
vantage of the situation and drove the
Gatzert ahead, leaving Vancouver two
boat lengths ahead. The lend was main
tained to the Ixicks and the Regulator
boat passed through first.
Neither vessel carried any freight to
speak of, and each was trimmed for
speed. Between Portland and Vancouver
was the prettiest exhibition of steamboat
racing -ever seen in locaL waters. ,acn
craft carried a large number of passen
gers and they all entered into the spirit
of the contest. The crews were likewise
excited and a numtwr of wagers were
made on the result. The gambling
opened when somebody bet a dollar that
the Spencer would beat the Gatzert into
the Columbia. Small bets were then made
on all sides as to which would dock at
Vancouver first. As the distance in
creased the size of the bets went up and
considerable money was placed on the ar
rival at The Dalles.
"We will pick up a few lines when the
Spencer gets warmed up," said Captain
Spencer, in speaking of the race. "The
machinery has all been down and Is not
In good running shape. Besides, we have
an entire new crew and the engineers are
not thoroughly accustomed to the boat.
I think I will be on the river for awhile
yet and it is possible that a rate war may

Curative Properties In Water
Austrian Uranium Mines.
Daily Consular and Trade Reports.
Consul John S. Twells, of Carlsbad,
furnishes the following information con
cerning the discovery that the water in
the Austrian uranium mines contains
radiium, and is of high medical value in
About eighteen miles from Carlsbad Is
the small town of St. Joachimstal, where
the Austrian government has one of its
tobacco factories, and about three miles
from that town, up in the hills, at a place
which Is difficult to reach, are the im
perial uranium works, which have be
come famous during the last few years
on account of the radium found in the
uranium stone. There is also a govern
ment factory at St. Joachimstal, where
chemical colors are made from the ura
nium and shipped to all parts of the
country. About two years ago the im
perial managers of the uranium mines
made a report to the government au
thorities that the water of the mine was
found to contain radium, and medical ex
perts have since declared that these
waters are of high medical value in cer
During the last two" weeks Austrian
newspapers have published items accord
ing to which the Austrian government is
convinced of the high value of these
waters and intends to take charge thereof
construct a proper radium Bprlng, and
build hotels, which it will control. The
view of the government is that the bene
flclal effects of radium in a number of
diseases have been admitted by the medS
cal profession, but hitherto the application
has been very expensive and treatment
difficult. The government believes now
that by the discovery, of radium in those
waters a powerful, and at the same time
a cheap medium has been found to make
the power, of radium accessible for bath

Oregon Methodists Will Attend
MEETING AT BALTIMORE
Matters of Vital Importance to De
nomination Will Be Considered
at Quadrennial Session
The general conference of the Metho
dist Episcopal Church will- open iti
quadrennial session In Baltimore, Md., to
morrow, and will continue in session
throughout the month and perhaps longer,
holding morning, afternoon and night
meetings. Every question relative to the
denomination in the world is reviewed and
acted upon there. New laws will be
made, others modified or repealed and a
vast amount of business of great im
portance to the church transacted.
Delegates to the general conference are
now gathering in Baltimore, those from
Portland and Oregon all having left here
within the past few days. They are Rev.
William B. Hollingshead, presiding elder
of Portland district; Rev. B. F. Rowland,
presiding elder of Salem district: Rev. J.
W. McDougall, pastor of Mount Tabor
Methodist Church: B. Lee Paget, of
Portland; H. L. Gilkey, of Grants Pass,
who goes in place of Senator R. A. Booth,
or lUugene, and C. D. Minton, of Salem.
Matters of vital importance to Port
land. Or., and .the entire Pacific North
west, as well as to the denomination in
general, are to be acted upon, and the
session will undoubtedly go down in
history as the greatest ever held.
Of particular interest to Portland, is
the question as to whether the Pacific
Christian Advocate, the official organ of
the church in the Northwest conferences,
snail continue to be published in this city.
An effort has been made by certain in
terests to have the paper consolidated
with the California Christian Advocate,
and published at San Francisco. Rev.
D. L. Rader, editor of the Pacific Advo
cate, has been working very hard to
bring up the circulation and advertising
or the paper, so that at the general con
ference it will be possible to demonstrate
to the publishing agents and to the dele
gates, who by their votes are to decide the
matter, that Methodism in this section of
the country could not spare the paper.
He will be backed by the entire North
west, delegation, in demanding continued
life for the Advocate.
The Pacific Christian Advocate's editor.
to have charge for the next four years,
will be chosen at the general conference.
and great interest centers In that matter.
It is quite generally believed that Dr.
Rader will be re-elected to the position.
ortnwest delegates will also make a
strong effort to secure legislation creat
ing what will be known as the Fifteenth
General Conference District. In this
effort, David H. Moore, resident bishop
for Oregon, with episcopal residence at
Portland, will assist. If this new dis
trict is granted, it will give Western
Methodism greater prestige and a
stronger voice in denominational policies.
The Northwest delegates carry with
them, among other things, resolutions
petitioning the general conference to re
assign Bishop Moore to this district. A
large petition has been forwarded to
Rev. J. W. McDougall by Sunnyside
chapter of the Epworth League, mem
orializing the general conference to re
tain intact the paragraph of the discip
line, which forbids Methodists participat
ing in "worldly amusements," among
which are enumerated dancing, card
playing, gambling, theatergoing and
others. This petition is from a large
number of chapters throughout the Ore

company for several days. Early last
week Mr. Tibbetts went to the barn
and turned out his stock. When he
stepped in the barnyard a few minutes
later to start the water at the pump
he was surprised to find a bull and a
cow moose apparently waiting for the

My Direct-Method Treatment
Offers a Positive Gore
for Every Ailing Man
The methods I devised twenty years ago
for treating men's diseases proved a radical
step in medical science. Those methods have
enabled me to cure diseases that were for
merly regarded as Incurable. In working
out my methods I held the theory that
Nervous Debility, for Instance, was not a
constitutional or functional ailment, but a
firostatic affection, and therefore, merely
ocal. I reasoned that its constitutional ef
fects were simply the results of a tremendous
waste of energy due to Inflammation of the
prostate gland; that this being true, a local
treatment could alone effect a cure. There
upon I devised the treatment I employ to
day with such marked success. Indeed, I
have never known this treatment to fail to
effect a complete and permanent cure in a
comparatively short time.
My treatments for other diseases peculiar
to men are also along original lines, and are
equally successful. My special treatment is
an open door to manly vigor and all the
pleasures that belong to perfect health. Any
man may avail himself of my services. It hns been and is my life's
work to aid afflicted men, alleviate their suffering and restore them
to health and vigor. I have therefore placed the charge for my services
within the easy reach of any man, no matter what his circumstances.
To PROVE my confidence in the results of mv treatment, and as an
act of good faith, I WILL WAIT FOR MY FEE UNTIL, YOU ARB
CURED. No man jcould be fairer than that. I take all the risk. You
take none whatever. Yod have everything to gain and absolutely
nothing to lose.
Delay is Dangerous
Men whose vitality Is exhausted, those who have some private disease
lurking in their system, and who are prematurely old, while still young
in years broken-down wrecks of what they ought to be, and who want
to be strong and to feel as vigorous as they formerly were, to enjoy
life asaln to win back the vim, vigor and vitality of perfect health
should consult with me before it is too late.
Are the Following Symptoms Yours?
Do you feel that your manly strength is slipping' away? Are you
weak, nervous, fretful and gloomy, have pains and aches in different
parts of the body, your sleep disturbed; weak back, headache, despond
ency, melancholia, palpitation of the heart, unable to concentrate your
thoughts, poor memory, easily fatigued, specks before the eyes, aver
sion to society, lack of ambition, will power depleted, dizzy spells, poor .
circulation, feel cold, lifeless and worn out, primarily induced in many
cases through abuses, excesses, overwork, etc? If so, then 1 warn you.
Do not delay longer.
I CURE ALL DISEASES OF MEN
My experience along this one path qualifies me to say positively that
such troubles as Spermatorrhoea, Lost VlRor, Varicocele, Hydrocele,
Contracted Disorders, Contagious Blood Poison, Stricture and "Wtak.
," can be cured perfectly so as to stay cured. Of course 1 use
different methods than the ordinary physician. Most of thie are
original with me and were devised for Just such cases as the ordinary
courses of treatment fail to reach.
The serious results that may follow neglect of contracted diseases
could be-scarcely exaggerated. Safety demands an absolutely thorough
cure in the least possible time. I have treated more cases of contracted
disorders than any other physician upon the Pacific Coast. My cures
are thorough and are accomplished in less time than other forms of
treatment require in producing even doubtful results. I employ reme
dies of my own devising, and my treatment is equally effective in both
recent and chronic cases.
I also permanently cure Specific Blood Poison, Stricture, Kerve.
Debilitation and all reflex allinenta.
Consultation and Diagnosis Free
I do not chariie for advice, examination or dlaKnoiil. If yon call
for a private talk with me, you will not be urged to begin treatment.

An unbroken record of cures during all these yearn Is
positive proof of the value of my Direct Method
Treatment. For 29 years I have specialized in treat
ing the diseases of men only.
A. irreat many people do not seem to understand
the difference bweea the regular practitioner and
the medical expert who has devoted hi lite study
to say, three or four complicated diseases. They
seem to be under the Impression that any physician
cures any disease with equal success. It is an
everyday experience to have a patient say: "I have
tried nearly every remedy sold by druggists for my
trouble." and the Invariable verdict is "No benefit."
Another will say: "I have-been treated by several
family physicians in my neighborhood who thought
they could cure me, but the results proved other
There are score and hundreds of afflicted men who believe their cases incurable
because treatment of the past has resulted in failure, and who throueh this
belief are being deprived of the full and complete health that might be theirs.
I do not claim that there are no Incurable cases, but I do claim that many
cases absolutely Incurable by such treatment as has been given them will
yield promptly to the correct and scientific methods that I exclusively employ.
I offer free consultation and will accept for treatment no case unless I am
confident of my ability to effect a complete cure. This is meant emphatically.

My Successful Treatment for Weakness
Dosing the system with powerful stimulants and tonics In an effort to restore
functional vigor can have but one final result: The condition is rendered worse
than before. "Weakness" is merely an Indication of a low form of Inflammation
In the prostate gland, and the Inflammation is but aggravated by stimulating
remedies that excite temporary activity. I employ the only scientific and
fully effective treatment for "weakness" which effects a permanent cure by
rewtoring the prostate gland to a sound and healthy state. I obtain complete
results In every case I treat.
Varicocele. Its Complete Cure Without Surgery
Vnder my treatment most cases of varicocele are cured without any operation
There is no cutting, no pain, and it Is seldom necessary that the patient be
detained from his occupation. Normal circulation Is at once restored through
out all the organs, and the natural processes of waste and repair ar again estab
lished. If you are afflicted with Varicocele, consult me at once. Delay can but
bring on aggravated conditions and nervous complications that will impair the
vital functions and Involve the general health.
