remained a few days on the Lower Co

tish Monarch hailed from Chlmbote.
For more than lialf an hour the two
Sips were In communication, exchanging
the latest gossip at sea and of what let

tramp steamers have semaphores, aa are
Tused In navies, and they converse In
1 arbors and at short distances, but In
Portland the "wig-wag" Is seldom seen
In operation except on. war vessels. The

The Hoche la no stranger In this har

has been looked forward to. She was
fully due when sighted and will be
given no laurels for fast sailing, but
unlike a few others of the Inbound
fleet any distress she met with was In
sufficient to cause her to put Into a
port of refuge. The craft Is consigned
to Meyer. Wilson St Company, and is

When it la taken Into consideration
that the Ianmark's main and fureyards
have a length of over 90 feet and those
of the Andromeda have little to boast
of In comparison. It Is admitted on the
beach that the Danmark has the best
prospects, for she can spread an Im
mense lot of canvas for her tonnage,
and Captain Nielsen asserts that she
can reel off 14 knots under proper con
dltlons. The Bolsdeffre has had thi
best of the Andromeda In two voyages,
beating her by five days each time, but
the Briton is primed for a better show
ing, and If his early departure gains
for him favorable weather, the result
may ba different.

ERROR IS ALLEGED
Intervention in Deschutes Case
Appealed by Howard.
HIGHER COURT TO DECIDE
Will Be Blocked by Notice
of Appeal Made.
Setting out 34 Instances In which It Is
alleged that the United States Court
erred In refusing to allow R. S. Howard.
Jr., to intervene In the foreclosure of the
assets of the Deschutes Irrigation &
Power Company, William C. Bristol, at
torney for Receiver Howard, yesterday
perfected an appeal to the United States
Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
Attorney Bristol did not request that a
writ of supersedeas Issue, commanding
that procedure In the sale of the prop
erty be discontinued pending an adjust
ment of the, controversy. It Is. however,
believed that notice of the appeal will
effectually block the reorganization plans
of the Eastern bondholders and Oregon
managers of the concern. It is also con
sidered probable that the Court of Ap
peals may cite the State of Oregon to
appear In the case and show what rights
it may have.
Irrigation Project Large.
The Deschutes Irrigation Power Com.
pany Is operating a Carey act reclama
tion project In Crook County, by which it
proposes to irrigate 114,911 acres of arid
land. All of the land was secured from
the State of Oregon upon contracts,
which required the payment of a nominal
sum per acre to the state. It Is under
stood that the State Land Board has
served notice on the Deschutes Company
to the effect that It holds the contracts
for cancellation. If that action should
be taken. It would remove the entire se
curity upon. which a bond issue of 1450.000
was floated among capitalists at Colum
In April the Eastern bondholders ap
peared in the United States Court and
asked that a receiver be appointed for
the company, alleging that It had failed
to pay three Installments of Interest and
that other features of tha mortgage had
been violated by the trustee, the Mer
chants' Savings & Trust Company. Par
ticular stress was laid upon the fact
that the trustee had accepted a similar
duty for an issue of second mortgage
bonds, and that no provision had been re
quired for the maintenance of a sinking
fund to redeem the first bonds.
Selling Contract Opposed.
Objection was also made to a selling
contract made with Roscoe Howard,
whereby the latter was to receive a coirw
mission of from 110 to 117.60 per acre for
colonizing the lands. It was charged that
the Howard contract would use up all the
profits of the company and that the bonds
could never be redeemed.
Soon after the appointment of the re
ceiver, it is charged that all Interests got
together and agreed upon a plan of re
organization of the company, the scheme
recognizing the Howard contract as a
first lien on the property.
R. 8. Howard, Jr.. had never been a
party to any of the litigation, although
the owner of 125,000 of the first mortgage
bonds. On learning of the details of set
tlement R. 8. Howard, Jr., began a suit
In Intervention. The court ruled that he
had let his opportunity to intervene slip
past, but that he could Intervene and
participate in the distribution oi me pro
cecds after the sale.
The appeal relies on the expectation of
having the Roscoe Howard contract de
clared Invalid as against the bondhold
ers, and on the assertion that the actions
of the trustee in agreeing to a settle
ment on behalf of the bondholders, can
not be binding on R. B. Howard. Jr. It
Is probable that the litigation will not
be determined for man months. In the
meantime the receiver will keep the prop
erty In operation in the Interests of the
several hundred settlers who have estab
lished their homes on the land.
ALLEGED STAMP THIEF HELD

Chong Is believed to operate a
"fence" in the rear of his store at
Fourth and Flanders streets. By the
confession of Frye, later confirmed by
admissions of the Chinaman, postofflce
Inspectors are convinced that Chong
knew that he was purchasing stolen
goods in dealing with Frye.
Frye confessed tnat ne took a quan
tity of the S-cent stamps to the store

started to count them. Chong saw the
movement and Is said to have snatched
them from the counter and placed the
stamps In a drawer back of his counter.
When arrested Chong denied the en
tire transaction, but yesterday admit
ted that he bought them from Frye and
only paid 14 for the outfit, after promts-
ng 15. Chong will claim that he did
not know the stamps had been stolen,
but the Government will urge that the
Celestial must have had suspicions or
he would not have refused to pay the

COUNCIL TO PROBE MATTER
Milk Situation to Be Studied by
Mayor Simon said yesterday that he
will send a message to the City Council
at Its nextvmeeting recommending that
committee be appointed clothed with
full power to investigate the milk sit

has decided upon this, course upon the
suggestion of David Brown, of Spokane,
president of the Hazelwood Cream
Company, who a few days ago, through
the columns of The Oregonlan, offered
to further such an investigation in
every possible way, even to the extent
of allowing access to the full details of
the company s milk and cream business
for as long a time as. may be required
to arrive at conclusions.
'The question of milk supply Is an
Important one, said Mayor Simon yes
terday. "It affects the whole popula

of food and its cost to the consumer
should not be greater than Is absolute
ly necessary. I fully agree that the
subject is of sufficient Importance to
warrant the appointment of an Invest!
gating committee which should go into
the subject from the standpoints of the
producer, the distributor and the con
sumer and make a full report with rec
"I would prefer that such a commit
tee should be composed of members of
the City Council, although I would by
no means be opposed to the addition of
others whose presence would be likely
to prove of benefit. I shall recommend
that this body be given a great deal of
latitude. I believe . that the contro

full and Impartial investigation In Jus
