corps of L'nited States Kngineers, in
charge of this district, in his annual re
port to the Secretary of War, printed
copies of which were received in Portland,
yesterday. The largest apporpriation rec

According to Major Mclndoe's report,
operations for the improvement of the
Columbia and lower Willamette Rivers
below this city during the fiscal year end
ing June 30, last, consisted almost entire
ly In dredging the shoals between this
city and Astoria. In this work the United
States dredger Iadd and Clatsop were
employed, a total of 341.430 cubic yards of
material being removed from the differ
ent shoal places' in the lower estuary of
the river. I
At the mouth of the Columbia work has
been In progress at Fort Stevens through
out the year, says the report, but the
active work of receiving stone and ex
tending the Jetty tramway was suspended
from Decembor 31 to April 13. on account
of inclement weather. At the beginning
of the fiscal year the tramway had been
extended to a point 29.416 feet from the
root of the jetty and the enrockment had
been brought to' a height of from four to
five fet above mean low tide.
Tammany Kx tends 300O Figlit.
During the year the tramway was re
built out to the end of the old jetty arM
extended past that point to a total lengtn
of 3CG0 feet. Continuing, the report says:
Th survey of the bar. completed the lat
ter part of June, shows quite a marked im
provement In the navigable channel since
the survey of last year.
The survey of last year showed a chan
nel about O00 feel in width with a. mini
mum depth of ':4i feet, with two navi
gable channels at the most easterly and
westerly limits, having minimum depths of
2B 4 and 25 feet, respectively. The sur
ey of this year shows that the 6000-foot
channel has narrowed to -4700 feet by the
westerly movement of Clatsop Rpit, due to
the exteninon of the Jetty. The easterly
CftH-foot channel of last year has been
eliminated and the westerly 25-foor channel
has deepened to IJfiH feet,
v The reduction of the total width of the
4 H-foot channel during the pa.st year has
I'Miilted In a well-defined, navigable chan
n(( with a minimum depth of Uti- feet and
a width of ono feet at its narrowest point,
while only about 1000 feet of the length of
the 2t'i-foot channel has a depth of less
thaa 7 feet and only, 20O0 feet a depth
of less than 2S feet.
The conditions of Peacock Spit are about
as usually found, with a slight shoaling in
spots and a gradual movement to the west
Clatsop Spit at its 24-foor contour on the
north side of the jetty shows a slight cut-
ting of the channel side and a westerly
movement of about l.'.OO feet at its west end.
On the south side of the Jetty the 24-foot
contour remains about the same along the
. south edge of the spit, but at the west end
it has advanced seaward about 20OO feet.
I The changes that have taken Vhce dur-
" ing the past year are very satisfactory and
give promise of a greater depth of chan
nel In a short time.
Work on Rapids Rushed.
Much benefit has resulted at WnatUla
and Homly Rapids on the upper Colum
bia from deepening and straightening"
inn uer iiiBimci, a.iinougu much more
rf this work needs to be done. The
total work of the season on this section
of the rivrIs summarized as follows:
Bigg Rapids 210 drags with the chan
nl rake, deepening the crossing about two
Lowr Umatilla. Rapids 42 cubta yards
Of rock blasted and removed.
Middle ITmatlUa Rapids 571 cubic yards
f rock blasted and removed.
Upper Umatilla Rapids 07 oublo yards
of rock blasted and removed.
Homly Rapids J7 cubic yards of rock
blasted ; 327 drags made with rake; 161
tons of bowlders, etc., were removed from
the bed of the river and placed where they
would improve the channel.
The following nummary Is given of
work done on the Snake River:
In all irtSS tons of stone were plaaed in
dams at Slaughter House Rapids; f5 cubic
yards of reef were blasted from Texas
Rapids; 1207 cubic yards of rock were re
moved from Palouse Rapids; 1127 cubic
yards of rock from Pine Tree Rapids, and
1093 cubic yards from Fish Hook Rapids.
"Wall at Cascades Asked.
Construction of a concrete wall to re
place the earth bank on the south side
of the upper lock at the Cascades of the
Columbia, to cost about $100,000. is an
other improvement recommended by
Mclndoe. The cost' of operating these
locks during the year was ?1.S53.S3. Sta
tistics are included in the report showing
that during the 13 months 4.16S.0S tons of
freight and 70.4S3 passengers passed
through the locks on the various river
craft. The following review is given of
the operations on the Columbia between
Vancoirver and the mouth of the Wil
lamette: No active operations were carried on dur
ing the year. In September a survey was
mde of the shoals between the railroad
bridge at Vancouver and deep water below
the lower point of Hay den Island. The sur
vey showed that the former dredited channel
along the Huyden Island shore had not been
, maintained, hut had shoaled in places to
10 f.et or less at low water. ' The best chan
nel over the shoal appeared to cross over the
Washington shore, with a. controlling depth
f about 11 feet at low water.
Early In the season It was the intention
, to redredge a channel to the projected 20
feet low-water depth across the shoal, but
he port of Portland suction d. retires could
in former years for this ?
ler dredge "was available.
f Fittock & I ad better at 1
work, and no other
The sawmill of Fittock
Vancouver, Wash., which heretofore has fur
nished nearly all the ocean cargoes, burned
down, and as it appeared that it would not
be a good policy to redredge a channel which
would probably fill up at the next high
water, and for which there was little or
no demand, it was decided not to attempt
dredging this last season, especially as no
economical dredge could be hired for the
The above-mentioned sawmill has been re
built, and t is proposed to use the United
Ptatee dredge Oregon to redredge the chan
nel after the freshet In the Columbia sub
sides. The dike at the head of Oregon . Slough
has remained intact, and requires no re
pairs at this time.
Coqnille Jetty Lengthened.
The status of work at other points in
this district is reviewed in the report as
Coqnilie River, from Coquille City to
mouth of river. Touring the year the jetty
was extended a farther distance of 133 feet,
and 8587 tons of stone were dum?ed there
on. Under this contract a total of 31.427
tona of stone were placed in the north jetty,
it being extended a total distance- of 2S3
feet seaward. This contract completed all
the work contemplated under the approved
project, and. with the work done in former
years, resulted in the construction of the
south jetty 2700 feet in length, and the
north Jetty 1075 feet in length. Both jetties
are of the high-tide, rubble-stone type, with
their sea ends BOO feet apart. The Influence
of these Jetties has caused the channel to
be straightened and located away from dan
gerous rocks, and has increased the low
water depth on the bar from about three
feet to lO feet. The ends of the jetties have
been more or less beaten down by the seas,
but this action seems to have ceased, and
the bar depths seem to remain fairly per
manent. Coos Bay Work Rests.
Coos Bay and Harbor. No active opera
tions under the approved project of con
struction of jetties were carried on during
the fiscal year. The Government plant was
cared for, and during March and Arril
about 5:i acres of the North Hpit wve
planted with Holland grass (Arunda e re
narta), the roots befng taken from ad
jacent plantings of former years.
The condition of the north jetty is about
the same as previously reported, pilots re
porting a least low-water depth of about 20
feet over the bar. . The jetty tramway and
wharf have been completely destroyed by
the teredo and decay, and the Jetty itself
more or less beaten down by the Winter
Tillamook Snag-s Removed.
Tillamook Bay and Bar At the begin
ning of the fiscal year the work of snag
ging with the Government plant on Ho
quarten Slough was in progress, and con
tinued until about August 1. between Tilla
mook City and Memaloose Point. This
stretch was thoroughly snagged, and ap
proximately 106 large snags and !10 small
snags and trees were removed from the

Wilson River was authorized bv the de
partment, and this work was done during
August and September, all expenses of
operation being paid by the people inter
ested. The dredge was also loaned, under
authority of the department, for deepen
ing the channel in Hoquarten Slough above
the county bridge. This work was inter
mittently carried on during Oecember and
January, after which the plant was laid
up for the Winter. '
With the funds provided by the act of
March 3. 1909. it is proposed to snag and
redredge the shoals to the projected depth
of nine feet, and at the close of the year
a new bucket for the dredge had been
ordered and the work of overhauling the
The controlling dikes constructed in
former years in Tillamook Bay are more
or less in need of repair, and as the chan
nel requires annual dredging and snagging
additional funds will be required. It is
estimated t hat $10,000 can be profitably
expended in the next two years In making
repairs to these dikes and In maintaining
ine improved cnannei.
Willamette River Cleared.
Work on the Willamette River was con
fined to a stretch on the river between
Corvallis and Newberg, a distance of 81
guiles, and consisted of snagging, dredg
ing and making necessary t repairs to
dams and revetments. In all, 126.000 cubic
yards of material were removed from the
river. The same character of wprk was
performed in the Yamhill River. The
locks Tn this stream were open 155 times
during the year. They were closod 74
days, from September 23 to March 4, on
account of high water. The cost of their
operation was $1188.66.
MAYOR BUYS STAMPS
CHECK CHEERS BUSY SALES
Seattle Sends Word $7000 Was
Raised There in One Day 1 vocal
Fund Xot Yet $10,000.
The first day of the last week of
the Christmas stamp campaign, con
ducted by the Visiting Nurse Associa
tion, opened with considerable gladness
at headquarters yesterday morning,
owing to a letter and check that were
received in the first mail from Mayor
Simon. This communication showed
that the city's executive took a deep
personal interest in the movement to
raise a fund of $10,000 tjo help in the
fight being waged against the white
plague, and gave the women concerned
in the sale of stamps new cheer.
Mayor Simon suggested that, inas
much as only one call, has been made
upon the business men for contribu
tions, a second canvass would not be
Pleased as were the members of ths
association to receive this letter, they
regret that It will be impossibleo fol
io, low out the Mayor's sugesion. Most
or tneir num oer are too exhausted by
the length of the campaign to make
the recanvass of the business offices,
and the remainder feel that their atten
tion must be given to the booths, of
which some addilonal ones have been
opened for the final week of the sale.
New incentive to the work was also
given by the report from Seattle, where
"Red Cross buttons' were sold for a
day. In an endeavor to raise a fund of
$10,000 for similar work there. In the
one day In which the campaign was
conducted in the city on Elliott Bay,
nearly $7000 was raised. The members
of the Visiting Nurse Association feel
that if Seattle could raise $7000 in one
day for work against tuberculosis, the
moti and women of Portland ought to
be able to give $10,000 in four weeks
at least. With this matter of local
pride in view, the work this week will
be prosecuted vigorously.

TUTTLE BROUGHT BACK
ALLEGED SWINDLER GETS A
HEARING TS WEDNESDAY.
Two Women Declare They Lost
Large Sums by Too Much Con-
fidenec In Prisoner.
H. A. Tuttle. arrested in Wausau, Wis.,
who is wanted in this city for swindling
women on whom he first worked the "af
finity" game, arrived in Portland yester
day morning in the custody of Detective
Joe Day and was later arraigned before
Judge Bennett, his case being set over
until December 22 for a hearing.
At least two victims of Tuttle are known
to the authorities, the amount of his
swindllngs being close to $2000. The
complaint on which his arrest was made
is brought by Marie Veal, an East Side
resident, who says that she gave him
$950 for the purpose of buying an Interest
in a pool and. billiard-room and that in
stead of buying the pool room, Tuttle
used the money for his own purposes.
The charge alleged against him by
Marie' Bofomeier, a waitress at the Del
monieo restaurant, 149 Seventh street,
however, is of a more reprehensible char
acter than the first.
Mies. Bobmeier represented to the Dis
trict AttorneyV office that Tuttle paid
violent court to her and that she gave
him sums at various times to deposit in
the bank for her. Instead of depositing
the money. Tuttle made an entry in the
book to deceive the young woman and
kept the money. After Tuttle had gone
away she went to the bank to draw some
of her money and found that she had no
funds on deposit there, the entries In her
book being forgeries made byv Tuttle. An
information against Tuttle on this charge
has not yet been filed.
Tuttle was visiting his relatives when
placed under arrest. He left Portland
two months ago. . .

Kven though your case may be one that some
other doctor is able to cure, and though his cure
be absolutely thorough and permanent, there is
yet good cause for your coming- to me for treat
ment. The service I render is entirely unlike
and better than the ordinary. I have devised
new and scientific methods of treating men's
ailments in all their phases. I cure cases that
others cannot cure, and cases that others can
cure I cure in less time and without pain or
possibility of injury. All my forms of treatment
have been perfected along the lines of nature's
requirements and are in exact harmony with the
natural recuperative forces. Therefore, my cures
arc painless, prompt and thorough.
The serious results that may follow neglect
of contracted ailments could scarcely be exag
gerated. Safety demands an absolutely thorough
cure in the least possible time. I have treated
more cases of contracted ailments than any
other physician upon the Pacific Coast. My
cures are thorough and are accomplished in less
time than even doubtful resulta. 1 employ
remedies of my own devising, and my treatment

cure of their own capes the truth of what I
clairri. namely, that my treatment is as certain
to cure as it is that my patient engages my
services and follows my directions. My suc
cess is due not alone to education, experience,
ski 11 and scientific equipment, but to the fact
that i limit my study and practice strictly to
aliments of men. To male maladies alone I have

It is always safest to try a strange
horse out in the harness a while
before starting, on a ions trip with
him. You don t need- to be a "trial
horse" for anybody, but it is a safe
conclusion that the man who shuts
his eyes and buys a horse on the
seller's estimate will not always get
what he pays for. The same is true
in selecting: a physician.
There may be plentv of (food ap

Tou certainly can make no mis
take by letting a doctor cure you
first and then pay him for "goods
delivered." Many doctors advertise
this plan, but are not always sin
cere in the proposition. I advertise
not a dollar need be paid unless
cured, and "that goes."
I correct unhealthy conditions the same as a shoemaker would mend
a pair of shoes. I made men strong enough to succeed because my whole
