TRADE HERE ASKED
Eastern Asiatic Steamship
Company Agent Inspects.
NEW LINE IS IN VIEW
Otto Jclstrap, of Copenhagen, Trie
for Full Cargoes Shipper Favor
Serrlcw to Wrt Coast, but
Cant Promise Big Freight.
In the lt few days Portlna export
ers hare been solicited by Otto Jelif rap,
ff Copenhagen, rvnmork. representing
the Kastern Asiatic Steamship Com
pany. to outline what cariro they would
pledge for shipment from Portland to
the Went Coast and the Cnlted Kingdom
In event a regular line of teamtn la
established. Mr. Jelstrap Is said to
hire sought full loads for every vessel,
hat shippers would not puarantee such
heavy patronage and he has proceeded
to Seattle to ascertain what Induce
ments will he offered there.
Portland has no direct service to the
West Coast and exporters are deslroua
of obtaining facilities with which to
reach that market. If the Eastern
Asiatic Company places steamers In op
eration from Pusrrt Sound and this port,
it la believed that plenty of cargo can
be contracted. There would be regular
lota of wheat available, parcels of lum
ber and at times canned Roods and oth
er commodities mlKht be handled once
the Wert Coast trade Is reopened.
Mr. Jelstrap has been spent for the
line at Singapore for five years and Is
familiar with the class of carsro floated
from the Pacific Coast. He has prom
ised that he will make an extended re
port to his principals covering prospects
here, harbor facilities, channel condi
tions and other details.
One point discussed was that of ob
taining coal for the steamers and It
may result In more activity being; dis
placed In the proposal to erect bunkers
nt Astoria under the supervision of the
newly-farmed Port of Astoria. At the
same time, as the vessels would come
from Europe with camo for Pan Pedro
and Pan Francisco, fuel could do loaaeu
In the south for the voyage.
M'XEILI, TO LEAVE RIVER

known as -Scotty." Is to quit steam
boating. He has tendered his resigna
tion to the I-ewls River Xavla-atlon
fompany to take effect December 1.
after which a new skipper will com
mand the steamer Modoc.
Retirement from the river to become
a rancher la the reason assigned by
the stalwart Scot, but the skeptical
say Captain McNeill rannot remain
away from the stream. For IS years
he has "steamboated." first on the old
Telephone, which made new records
for the marine world as a sternwheel
er. and he has "spun the wheel" on
the old Mascot, then the Tahoma. the
new Mascot, which wes burned March
H. 1911. at Pekln. on the Lewis Klver.

labored more than seven years for the
Interests controlled by Jacob Kamm

day and said that owing to the fact
the new Harrlman bridge spans had
been erected on both sides of the draw
piers. It was Imperative for the
tenders on the Steel bridge to clear
the draw and open It as soon as pos
sible after the stsmal is given by a
steamer passing through the Burnslde
strcet bridge, because with the cur
rent running In the river It Is diffi
cult to check the headway. Another
point made Is that the draw piers of
the new bridge are not lighted proper
ly, the red lanterns shown being too
small to be seen by pilots until but a
short distance away.

HOW TO CURE
Contagions Blood Poison is a viru
lent germ, and like most other bacte
rial organisms is very diffcult to kill
or destroy within the 6ystem. It
would therefore be useless to endeavor
to cure the disease with some strong
medicine intended to destroy the dis
eased blood cells and virus. The
proper way the only way is to
REMOVE the germs and poisons from
the blood by purifying the circulation.
Thousands have cured themselves of
this powerful disease by the tise of
S. S. S., the greatest of all vegetable
blood purifiers. Thjs is a medicine
of unquestioned ability in the treat
ment of Contagious Blood Poison.
For more than forty years it has been
prepared and sold as a cure for this
trouble, and not only its efficacy, but
the fact that it does not contain a par
ticle of mineral, or other harmful
drug, should be an inducement to any
Contagious Blood Poison sufferer to
begin its use. S. S. S. goes right
down into the circulation, and re
moves every trace of the destructive
virus. It heals all sores, stops falling
hair, and by cleansing and enriching
the blood, soon clears the body of
every symptom. S. S. S. cures to
stay cured; there is no future breaking
out of the disease. Home Treatment
book and any medical advice free.
&. S. S. is sold at drug stores.

dose the system with powerful stimu
lants and tonics, calculated to restore
nervous force or strength that Is not
and never has been lacking, with the
result that tha functions are tempo
rarily excited to the positive detriment
cf the patient. Weakness is only a
symptom rssultlng from many local
conditions and Is curable by local
treatment only, without the giving of
a single Internal dose, which demon
strates the absolute accuracy of my
understanding and treatment of this
disorder. In years I have not met
with a single failure and I have entire
confidence In my ability to cure all
cases that come to me for treatment.

who have been misinformed about

want an opportunity to treat such

the financial part, as I accept pay for
my services as benefits are derived;
when I am satisfied the patient is re
liable. Healthy Is capital at Interest,
I will prov my ability to cure before
