Liner Arabien to Leave Ant

Coffee Shipments May Bo Big Fac

of Eastern Fleet.
More pressure has been brought to
bear on executives ot the East Astatic
fleet so it is almost assured that the
liner Arabien. which Is to sail from
Antwerp. August 15. will call at Port
land and she will be the first vessel
of that flap to reach the el'y.
Alfred Tucker, of Meyer. Wilson &
Co.. Portland agency tor the East Asi
atic, has labored for several months
to establish a connection here, but in
nearly every instance Portland cargo
could not be loaded because of the
large amounts first engaged for other
harbors, but this time dealer; nave
managed to combine orders for cof
fee and the Arabien is to call at Santos,
in Brazil, and load approximately 300
tons, in addition to between lu.uuu una
12.000 bags for San Francisco.
It Is estimated that there Is received
here each month 2000 bags of cof
fee, but it has moved principally by
water to New Orleans and then north
by rail, while other lots were delivered
at San Francisco and routed to Port
land on coastwise steamers. Dealers
object to both routes because the cof
fee bags are rehandled with consider
able damage to sacks and loss of con
tents. For that reason shipping via
Pan Francisco necessitates the use of
double sacks, an added expense, and
In large shipments it means extra
If arrangements can be made with
the East Asiatic interests to transport
coffee regularly to Portland it will
mean that the steamers calling at San
tos will arrive here every two months.
On the other hand, there is an in
crease In the cargo offered at Euro
pean ports for this city, most of which
now comes to San Francisco and is
shipped on coasters. The -movement
tinder way Is to induce Importers to
patronize the line that will provide di
rect sailings to this city, in which
event Portland will be given a. month
ly service the same as San Francisco.
On the Arabien will be a number of
Portland consignments, so she is not
to come into the river with coffee alone.
From Antwerp the steamer will go to
other European harbors and should be
at Santos about September, arriving
here the latter part of October or early
in November. '

JAPANESE CUT TEA TARIFF
Other Pacific Steamship Lines Have
Not Slet the Xew Rale.
Late intelligence from Japan is that
fleets engaged in the Pacific trade un
der the Nipponese banner have cut the
rate on tea from 16.60 to $5.50 a ton
and that there is little likelihood of
an agreement between them and other
fleets forming the trans-Pacific freight
bureau for a participation in the same
The question of a reduction in tea
rates has been on for several weeks,
it having been broached at Yokohama,
and agents on the other side of Amer
ican lines communicated with the head
officers on this side for advice, but no
action has been taken. . It Is reported
that foreign shippers In Japan are not
supporting the Japanese. Another rate
war is in full swing on the other side,
the Nippon Yusen Kaisha being pitted
against the British-India line for a
share of the Japan-India trade and
the Japs have purchased two 16.000
ton vessels, while the British Inter

river, who sought cool breezes. But
yesterday some of the boatowners
passed most of the morning searching
for craft that had not been returned.
Two rowboats were found on the
west bank, above the city. wHere the
occupants had evidently left them to

$50, so damage to either class through

BIG INVESTMENT JUSTIFIED
Conditions in Oregon Warrant Vast
Expenditures and Improvement,
Railway President Tells Busi
ness Men of Portland.
"It is only because the conditions in
Oregon warrant vast railway expendl
tures and Improvements that the South
ern Pacific has planned to spend up
ward of $8,000,000 within the next few
years, declared President William
Sproule, of the Southern Pacific Com
pany, at a luncheon given in his honor
yesterday by the board of governors
of the Commercial Club.
"It Is very natural," said President
Sproule, "that in approprating money
for investment in this state there must
be a justification. I am in the city
on official business which is the gen
eral cause of my coming here or going
elsewhere. The situation in Oregon in
relation to the Southern Pacific Is one
of peculiar Interest to myself because
the question of what should be done
here in respect to developments are
put up to me. It is on my own rec
ommendation that things are done. In
assuming responsibility for the large
investments and appropriations in Ore
gon there of course is something to
Fair Returns Necessary.
"The railroad business is the same
as all other business conducted on
legitimate lines. The man who puts
his money into it must be assured of
a reasonable return on his investment,
or at least the same return as Is re
alized from other lines of business. The
bankers furnish the money, but they
only act as the mediums through which
the money is passed from the man who
has saved it to the men who are to
expend it. .
"Money Is not placed Into railroad
projects unless there Is a fair, prospect
of returns on- the Investment, and for
that reason we must have something to
go on before we can place the money
we have to spend in development and
Improvements of railway facilities.
"Our confidence in Oregon is very
apparent in our announced intention
of making expenditures here. All we
ask In return Is for the co-operation
of your business people to make pos
sible the returns wmcn we nave to
have. It is the ambition of my worthy
corps of officials over the Oregon lines
of the company to have the support of

SDroule and other speakers of the oc
casion. To President Sproule Mr. Piper
extended the good will of the Commer

Robert E. Strahorn, of the Southern
Pacific Company, was called upon to
speak and in response outlined some
of the plans of the company and told
of the necessity of the communities and
business people co-operating with the
company in carrying out the railway
improvement plans. Others speakers
were T. B. Wilcox, D. w. uampoeu ana

C'oom Bay Work Continues.
ReDorts that work is to be suspended
on the extension of the Southern Pa
cific from Eugene to Coos Bay are
without foundation, according to Pres
ident Sproule', who was notified yes
terday of the reports of suspension,
which apparently originated in North
Bend, Or. "There is absolutely noth
ing to the report," said President
Sproule. "The Eugene-Coos Bay line
is to be pushed to completition as soon
'I cannot see how such a rumor orig
inated unless it was through a mis

Intention of completing the extension.
The manner In which we are building
the line is such that we do not con
sider it economical to construct from
both ends. We are now working from
Eugene to the Gardiner tunnel and are
also building the tunnel. We have not
considered it wise to do any grading
northwesterly from Gardiner, because,
by the time we get the tunnel and
other part of the present work done,
the grading between Gardiner and Coos
Bay would be badly damaged, if not
all washed out. Therefore it is our
plan to work up to and through the
Gardiner tunnel and then proceed with
the rest of the extension.
"Recently occasion came up whereby
a request was made for machinery at
the Coos Bay end of the line. A let
ter was written stating that no work
was planned -there at present and giv
ing the reasons. That probably was
the cause of the rumor that work is
to be or has been suspended."

A WOMAN'S GOOD jLOOhLS . .
Depend on her general health and freedom from pain. Many a woman looks old
before her time because ot those irregularities which are essentially feminine.
Starting from early womanhood, she suffers from frequently recurring derangements
that upset her Womanly health. If she be beautiful she grows into that mellow
age without wrinkles and crowieet about the eyes or the blue eiroles underneath.
It is invariably the rule that such women suffer little, or not at all, from womanly
derangements which sap the health and leave in the face the tell-tale story of pain
and suffering. Dr.R.V. Pierce.the famous specialist in the diseases of women, found

States and Canada. It also won the
highest percentage of certificates for
its boy members, but this honor car
ries no special prize. "The cup is
yours till June 30, 1913," wrote George
B. Hodge, International educational di
rector, to Mr. Stone. "Then if Port
land wins in 1913, which It probably
will. It is yours for keeps.'"
"I am more pleased with winning the
McBurney cup, than I would be if
members of the Portland Y. M. C. A.,
were taking first prizes in the Olym
pic games," said Mr. Stone. "The
McBurney cup Is the greatest trophy
offered among the associations, and it
will make the Y. M. C. A. in the East
take notice to see us win it two years
in succession. It Indicates the great
scope of the educational work that we
are carrying on here.
"The cup has been offered for a
long time and no Y. M. C. A., has been
able to win It three years in succes
sion. Portland intends to do it, how
ever. We are going to have the cup
as a permanent trophy for Portland."

The suggestion has often been made
that Instead of Rex Oregonus making
his Initial appearance in the electric
parade, he should first appear In one
of the other parades. The argument
has been advanced that in this way the
different parades would be equalized in

It Is the desire of the Knights of the

Nor will removing the place by surgical operation
