Appropriation of $60,000 for
Willamette River Next Year
Is Request.
Fresent Plan of Annual Operations
on Willamette Said to Bo Useless
Unless Funds Are Provided
for Larger Contracts. .
Representing growers of the Upper
Willamette districts, above HewDerg,
Tho have been isolated from the Port
land produce mark:et because of the
imnaasable condition of the stream
from Newberg to Salem, Captain Rich,
ard Chllcott yesterday forwarded com
munlcations to commercial organiza
tions at Salem. Albany, Newberg, Ore
gon City and Portland, asking their
co-operation in a move to prevent the
expenditure of J30.000 on the stream
this season. He asks that the work be
ordered delayed until next year, when
960.000 will be on hand for permanent
He says in the communication that
he has discussed the proposal generally
with shippers along the stream and
that they favored the question being
shouldered by the commercial bodies as
the most effective means of getting re
Reasons Set Forth.
The letter is, in part, as follows:
The fact that steamer cannot now ply
on the Willamette River, above the City
of ewberg. I argument enougn relative
to the condition of the river.
The question with us is. How shall the
present conditions be amelloratea it win
probably be three or four weeks before an
orficlal communication irom wasnington
reaches the engineers' office in Portland
with orders to commence work. Three
weeks more will be consumed to put the
equipment in order. From one to two weeks
will be required to move the same to the
work and by that time the low-water period
Is nearly at an end, consequently any
money expended this season ia practically
useless and would be wasted.
The proposition It is desired to set forth
is this: That one man of the Engineer
Corps be placed in charge of the Willam
ette River during his life or term of service.
as the practice of removing men every one
or two years who nave gained experience
in a given locality, is not conducive to the
public benefit; that every dollar expended
on the river shall be for . permanent lm
' provements. no money whatever to be ex
pended for temporary work, and that all
. work shall be done under tne contract sys
tem and the surveillance of an Army engl
, neer.
Contract System Favored.
The latter clause will be the most ef-
. fective and the most potent factor in the
economical expenditure of the money and
the readiest manner by -which this river can
be opened to navigation. If a contractor un
dertakes the work, all of which can easily
be specified, it will be done thoroughly and
with promptness and dispatch and the men
so employed will not be enjoying a Bum
. mer outing.
Under the present system, which has al
ways been in' practice on the Willamette for
20 years or more, the river has gradually
been allowed to get In a worse condition,
until today it is Impassable, with the sum of
sju.uuu oeing expended upon it annually.
Now, if we save this season's appropria
tion and place it with next vear's. a sum
of 960.000 is thus available which, expended
under the contract system, will open a per
manent cnannei rrom Oregon Ulty to Salem,
and perhaps higher.
Steamers Crowded and Some Must
Add Passenger Accommodations.
Unprecedented coastwise traffic, prin
cipally noticeable by the gains in passen
ger business, is being experienced in
Portland and while the development of
Oregon coast localities is generally cred
ited with the Increase, sales of reserva
tions to San Francisco and Los Angeles
have climbed to such an extent that
without question the extension of the
Harrlman service to San Pedro will prove
lucrative from its inception.
Beginning at Tillamook the trade is
shown to be growing to such -en extent
that two regular steamers are crowded
to capacity each week and the owners of
the Golden Gate yesterday announced
that the passenger accommodations re
cently added' have been found inade
quate and it has been determined to util
ize her 'tween decks for berths, giving
her a license for S3 persons.
On the Coos Bay route the Newport.J

could have secured passengers, as th
sales on the steamer Breakwater, sailing
at 9 o'clock this morning, were so heavy
that before the office closed yesterday
all berths had been disposed of and ac
commodations had been provided in her
social hall.
The steamer Bear, sailing Saturday,
had but two of her saloon deck state
rooms left yesterday and as they are the
most expensive accommodations on the
vessel, there is every reason to believe
she will have a large list. The steamer
Rose City's reservations have been com
pleted at the Bay City and she will be
added to the fleet so that sailings will
be resumed in regular order when the
schedule Is placed in effect to San Pe
dro, it being planned to have the Beaver
and Bear call there first and be followed
by the Rose City.
The North Pacific Steamship Company
will have the Santa Clara in service ear
ly next month and while the Eureka has
not been able to include Coos Bay as a
port of call, it is probable that harbor
will be placed on the list so that the
Roanoke and Elder can travel on the
Portland-San Francisco-San Pedro route.

Accident Delays Service Record.
For the first time in 21 years. Frank
Malmquist, purser of the steamer Un
dine, was unable to report for duty
yesterday in the Kamm Line service,
and his absence was due to the fact
he is being treated at St. Vincent's Hos

night, when he slipped on the deck and
fell against a cavil while trying to

You Can Pay When CURED
What better proof or more sincere assur
ance can I offer than that I am willing; to
wait for my fee until I effect a cure?
Could I afford to make such an offer if I
was not absolutely certain of curing every
case I take?
My practice has demonstrated that no
ailment peculiar to men Is incurable. Fail
use to cure is usually due to lack of
knowledge and improper treatment. Tou
may consult me free of charge and learn
your exact condition. I will not urge my
services, nor will I accept your case unless
I am positive of my ability to cure you.
I accept no incurable cases at all, and
if I treat you, you can feel assured of a
thorough and permanent cure, and I am al
ways willing to wait for my fee until a
cure Is effected.
I offer not only FREE consultation and advice, but of every case
that comes to me I will make a careful examination and diagnosis with
out charge. No ailing man should neglect this opportunity to get ex
pert opinion about his trouble.
If you cannot call, wrlto for Diagnosis chart. My offices are open
all day from 9 A. M. to 9 P. M., and Sundays from 10 to 1.
Here Is an Opportunity for Any Man to
Be Cured Easily, Quickly and Permanently
"JO MAN should suffer the loss of that vitality which renders life worth living, or allow him
self to become less than Nature intended, when there is at hand a certain cure for his debility.
Most of the PAINS, most of the DEBILITIES of the STOMACH, HEART, BRAIN, NERVES and
AILMENTS of MEN from which men suffer are due to an early loss of Nature 's reserve power.
You need not suffer from this. You can be restored.. The very element which you have lost you
can get back, and you may be as happy as any man. You can bo cured by the right kind of treat
ment. Oome to my office; investigate my methods. v
When you are first aware of any disease or debility upon
your vitality, then you should procure the proper medical advice
and treatment without delay. You will secure to yourself that
health, success and enjoyment of life which is every man's lot,
whose bright and steady eyes, clear and healthy skin, active
brain, congenial make-up and physical development .show that
no 'contaminating influences of disease are devastating his sys
tem, that no mental, moral or physical debility is making his
life a miserable failure.
I do not treat symptoms. I treat and cure the ailment be
hind the symptoms. If the case presents even the slightest fea
ture upon which I have a doubt, or if I recognise-incurable com
plications, I positively refuse treatment. I would rather give
up my practice than indulge in either guesswork or make-believe
eures. I have devoted years of earnest and conscientious en
deavor to the unravelment of some of the most perplexing prob
lems that ever confronted the profession, and believe that I have
attained the limit of medical possibilities in my particular .branch
of practice. I have brought to light the true nature of men's
ailments and the causes of the symptoms they present. Inaddi
tion I have by the scientific blending of drugs produced remedies
that meet every condition that it seems possible to cure. There
is no cause to hesitate. Consultation costs nothing, and I will
not offer my services unless I can cure you.
