T. B. Wilcox Says Demand Is
Satisfied and Flour Mills
FEW ORDERS IN SIGHT
Reciprocity Treaty With Canada
Will Sot Injure Farmers of Pa
cific Northwest Japan to
Boy IJUle Iore.
The purchases of flt:r and wheat
lor ihlrmrnt to the Orient bav. not
rear.hr.1 the volume hoped for by farm
er and other bold-rs of grain, accord
ing to T. IS. W:fo. who returned to
Portland yesterday from Southern
California, w.i.-re he had been for
,rl vks. Mr. Wll.o also declared
that reciprocity In wheat with t anada
would rot work to the dlMdvantaaa
of the farmer of the Pacific .North
west, lie said:
-I have ben under the Impression
tor ioine month". In view of the lara-e
crrr of liussla. Rouroanla. Arcentlna
and Australia and l-.e Urge stocks of
wheat In the I'nlteu Vat., that there
waa no roum for the market to reach
tr,e price of the !t two or three
Sprirar. We bad reduced price In
the last few months, on the last crop,
but a a rule they were above export
"I have rad with Interest the re
port from Portland and the Sound of
the lur. amount of wheat and flour
goln ! the orient at considerably
more than eiport price, and felt o
gratified I thoucht 1 would quit play
In so!f and com home fur fear I
wouldn't let my share of the business.
Report Are L'nfounjcd.
T find, however, that the reports
of large business with the Orient, so
far as It applies to flour, are largely
buncombe. There wo In February a
bunchln of steamers carrying Janu
ary and February shipments, which
made It look a though a larce busi
ness were bring done, but i find few
order In sihi at fie present time,
and ome of the ml!! are closing down
for lack of demand.
"There ha been a considerable
amount of wheat sold for shipment to
Japan, approximated 1. 000.00 bushels,
the equivalent of about Zuu.QOO barrel
of flour. The occasion for this buyln
by the Jaranese Is the advance In the
Japanese duty, which takes rlaee. 1
believe, on June 1. and. a Is always
the case under such condition, there
ha been some speculative buying of
American wheat. There Is. however. I
think, lltt'.e or no demand for floor,
and from the best i.dvtce I have, the
demand for wheat, for the moment,
has been well satisfied.
Markets Have Iccllnrd.
"T'nder the pressure of free ship
ments from Argentina and Australia
the foreign wheat market have de
clined, and In the fear of Canadian
reciprocity the forelsn. as well as the
American market, have declined.
"But In my opinion reciprocity with
Canada the access to the Canadian
wheat crop by American miller free
of duty will have a tendency to re
duce the price of wheat la the Middle
Weit. will have an advancing ten
dency on the fcrelen markets and will
steady. If rot advance, the price of
Northwestern wheat, which Is based
almost entirely on the Kuropcan mar
kets. If any American farmer suffers
by reason of Canadian reciprocity in
wheat It will be In t.ie Middle West.
Farmers Arc Misled.
"I understand that wheat has been
eli!n here at about 0 or M cents,
which is 4 or S cents above a parity
wltn the European markets. Japan
will not take any considerable portion
of our reserve stocks, and I think the
farming community Is being; misled by
newspaper reports to the effect that
there Is a large consumptive demand
for wheat and flour from the Orient.
'With thl de.nand satisfied, as it now
appear to be. our local market must
decline unless the foreign market
makes a material advance.
"Hut opinions of the wheat market
for tod.iy are of n value tomorrow.
To. lay we do not care for wheat and
cannot sell flour. What conditions
will prevail tomorrow no one knows."

the Instance of Special Deputy Collector
of Customs Parker, of Astoria, who was
accompanied here yesterday by Inspector
Klerlnt n. It was recited to United States
District Attorney McCourt that shortly
after the Northumbria arrived In the
Columbia River from Victoria. February
2S. Godall was apprehended as he was
going ashore with a roll of silk con
cealed under his coat.
While the goods are valued at only IS.
that fact may not mitigate In favor of
the defendant, because the otliclals are
bent on enforcing the statutes against
smuggling, owing to the many avenues
open through which members of crews
of vessel coming from the Orient di
rect, or those that first touch at other
ports, have for landing contraband goods
here. Godall had liberty at Astoria, but
the goods were seized, with the under
standing that when - the Northumbria
reached Llnnton the case would be taken
up. the ofllcers not wishing to delay the
vessel In the lower harbor.
AH vessels from the Orient are thor
oughly searched by the customs officers
on arrival. When silk and other goods
are found and It is shown that there is
no Intent on the part of the owner to
land them Illegally, they are entered
either on the manifest or list of goods
that are not to bo entered, so the o Ul
cer can keep trace of them.

the master of the steamer Coaster, charg
ing him with having permitted his engine-room
force to dump ashes Into the
harbor. Facts in the case were reported
last evening by Sergeant Carlson, of the
harbor police, who says he watched the
act and that It took place while the
vessel was heading down stream, as she
had discharged Inward cargo from San
Francisco and left for Goble to load lum
ber. On the last voyage from here of the
British steamer Kumerlc. a large amount
of ashes were duniped over the side, but
the patrol launch klidor happened to be
in the vicinity, with Harbormaster Speler
aboard, and he ran alongside and ordered
the ashes held aboard until the steamer
reached deep water. The matter was
called to the attention of the Federal
ofllcers, and as the vessel Is due the

Drake C. O'Reilly, of the Diamond O
line, Is imbued with a desire to have the
bed of the river explored for the reloca
tion of things long forgotten as a result
of his dredging crew having yesterday
struck the hull of the old steamer Gov
ernor Newell, at the foot of East Madi

today whether dynamite will be used or
more powerful dredging equipment se
cured to remove the hulk.
The Governor Newell waa moored there
year ago by her owner. Captain Hill,

steamer Paloma. No objection was made
to the berth being occupied, but one day
the hulk could withstand the ravages
of time no longer and quietly sank to
the bottom. She could have been raised
and gotten rid of, but the work waa de
ferred from time to time until the residue
of numerous freshets had covered her

construction of a dock on property north

Damara Signs Chinese Sailors.
Word comes from Tacoma that mem
bers of the crew of the British steamer
Damara, wlo were aboard when she
loaded at Westport last week, assert
that they have -been discharged because
tho owners wish to forestall any incon
venience through the threatened strike
of International Seamen, which Is said
to be due In another month. The Da
mars., which is bound for Australia with
a full lumber cargo, has signed a Chi

ported, will start In England and may
be felt greater in Australia than In any
country outside of Europe.

A SPECIFIC BLOOD IMPURITY
Catarrh is a deep-seated blood dis
ease, one which no amount of local
treatment will ever permanently cure.
The beneficial effects of washes,
sprays, inhalations, etc., are only
temporary, and when left off the old
condition rettirns, because the blood
is infected with catarrhal matter and
Impurities. . This impure condition
ef the circulation irritates and in
flames the delicate mucous mem
branes and tissues and produces the
Well known symptoms of ringing
noises ia the head and ears, mucus in
the throat, headaches, watery eyes,
partial deafness, sore throat, general
impairmqpt of health, etc. This con
dition will remain, growing worse as
long as the catarrhal matter is al
lowed to remain in the blood. Being
a specific blood impurity, there is only
one way to cure Catarrh, and that is
to purify the blood. Nothing equals
S. S. S. for this purpose. It attacks
the disease at its head in the circu
lation and by thoroughly renovating
tne blood and
cleansing it of all
makes a perma
nent and lasting
cure of the dis
ease. For forty
years S. S. S. has
as the best blood
purifier, and the thousands of cases of
Catarrh it has cured is proof that it is
the very medicine needed !by those
who su ff er with this trouble. Book on

Y. M. C. A. Entertains Company of
500 at Carnival of Games.
Probably BOO were present last night at
the games carnival in ine iu sj io
niums of the Portland Young Men's
Christian Association. More than SO
young men participated in the numerous
entertainment features, and the occasion
was one of the most enjoyable ever con
ducted by the association.
Particularly noteworthy waa a pro
gramme of gymnastics, given by mem
bers of the physical department. These
comprised almost the only feature of the
antrttilnmfnt that was not of a
humorous nature. Dozens of booths lined
the walls of the gymnasium, outsioe or
which strong-lunged "Darters" proclaimed
the merits of the various attractions. A
mock court was one of the big mirth
producers, the guests being seized at will
by the officers of the court, taken be
fore the Judge and tried for offences of
all degrees of gravity.

DOCTOR'S PRESCRIPTION FAILED.
THE GREAT KIDNEY REMELY
. PROVES ITS MERIT.
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is one of
the patent medicines that Is better than
many of the prescriptions prescribed
by doctors, at least It has done more
good for backache and kidney trouble
than any other medicine I know of,
and I always recommend It to my
friends as I know It can't be beat.
I had a severe backacl se some time
ago which could not be cured by the
doctor's medicine. I am glad to say,
however, that Swamp-Root cured me in
a few weeks' time.
So certain am I that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root is a medicine of merit
that I eend you this testimonial which
you can use any time.
Yours very truly,
Subscribed and sworn to before me
