Figuratively, the gulf of the ages
was bridged yesterday by the appear
ance of a veritable cave man, dressed
as man must have dressed soon after
he came down from the trees, on the
crowded business streets of a metrop
olis. The contrast was heightened by the
fact that the cave man, such a man
as must have stalked the mammoth
in his fen, rode in a high-power auto
mobile, one of the last words In the
bright lexicon of modern mechanical
Knowles saw downtown Port
land, and downtown Portland saw Joe
Downtown Portland shouted a cor
dial greeting and Joe Knowles waved
a long, brown arm, muscled to the
wrist and tattooed like a South faea
Islander a memento of the days when,
in Knowles words, he was "a fool kid
in the Navy."
The Boston artist who accomplished
a aelf-set feat of atavism, who went
back to nature and wrested a living
from her with his bare hands for 30
days in the forests of the Siskiyous,
was clad only in the skins which he
took in the wilderness.
Costume Declared Ample.
Brief as was his costume, it com
pared favorably with many that have
brought their wearers fame behind the
footlights. It would have made sev
eral copious wardrobes for Isadora
Duncan, Lady Constance Richardson
and other dancers of the ultra-modern
Anyway, no one seemed to mind, and
the shouts and salutations that greet
ed the latter-day Ab were all good
natured. Traffic slowed down a little, driv
ers of automobiles risked dislocated
necks and pedestrians stopped stock
still and stared.
"How's Hie in the woods? I might
want to go out some time myself."
yelled a pocket-edition of a newsboy,
who ran up alongside Knowles' car.
"Fine, my boy, line." said the big fel
low in the deerskins. "I'll tell you all
about it tomorrow."
Knowles grinned joyously he never
smiles: he can't for It Is his fondest
Idea that he has taught a lesson and
set an example that is of great value
to the male young of the genus homo.
The traffic policemen, waving for
Knowles' car to make the crossing,
smiled In recognition and saluted.
Some even cracked the traditional dig
nity of the "traffic cop" to the extent
of singing out, "Hello, Joe!"
"Hello, Joe," Common Greeting.
And it was "Hello, Joe," all over
town. Wherever the car stopped it was
soon surrounded by a crowd, eager to
get a near view of the man who has
proved that in spite of a coddling civili
zation, a man may go back to the great
mother and by dint of strong, two
fisted persuasion, make her acknowl
edge, tacitly at least, that "a man's a
man for a that.
Knowles' car was driven to the City
Hall from the Hotel Oregon, where it
took the nature man scarce more time
than it takes to tell to divest himself
of his store clothes and get Into his
Knowles shook hands with all the
heads of the Portland city government,
and was congratulated by them. Him
self not greatly given to the arts of
polite repartee he is too much in
earnest Knowles "made" but little
conversation. For that . matter, he
found himself busy answering the
questions that were fired at him from
He met Mayor Albee, Commission
ers Brewster, Bigelow, Dieck and Daly,
City Attorney La Roche and other mu
nicipal officers. As he chatted with
them for a few moments the lobby of
the City Hall filled with clerks, stenog
raphers and others who may not have
been on the municipal payroll.
Policeman Gets "Funny."
Policeman Fones, whose duty it is
to see that the peace and dignity of
the city is preserved In its headquar
ters, drew deeply on his troglodytic
sense of humor when Knowles first
intered, and provided diversion for a
short time while the Mayor's coming
"We got several fellers down In the
Jail who have more on than you have,"
he said, pleasantly, edging up and
comparing his face to Knowles', with
no particular advantage to either
"I presume you have." said Knowles,
composedly, but scanning the Fones
features closely for a jest-or-earnest
He whose duty it is, and so on, pur
sued his remarks with all the delicacy
of a dancing bear doing the hesita
tion. He said, among other Jovial things,
that it "wouldn't take moer'n two
minutes to git th' wagon.
But Knowles in some occult way
determined that the guardian of the
peace and dignity and all the rest
was joking. He said later that his
sense of the primordial often comes
to his aid when he is puzzled by
something in the haunts of civiliza
tion. Outside the hall. J. B. Gehr, veteran
employe of the engineering depart
ment, called out, "We want to know
how you caught that deer."
"All right. I'll tell you all about it
tomorrow night," said Knowles.
Other Calls Made.
The colloquy continued while the
photographer was getting fixed for a
shot." and Mr. Gehr called out "You're
all right," as the car moved away.
Knowles called on W. L Flnley, State
Biologist, and R. E. Clanton, Master
Fish Warden, at the Pittock Block,
and they came down to the street to
KTeet him. With them were Sam L
Landry, Chief Fish and Game "Warden
of District No. 1, comprising Southern
Oregon, and Professor Sykes, of the
chair of zoology at the Oregon Agri
cultural College, all of whom had
brief chats with Knowles concerning
his exploit and the country In which it

Last year the Burgess made the re

Portland. There were many shipments
of a miscellaneous character, the ves
sel having 2750 tons in all. Captain
Watson brought the Santa Cruz around
from New York by way of the Straits
of Magellan, and she is the last of the
Grace flag to follow that course, the
company having determined from the
start to use the Panama Canal .as soon
as it was open. Not much lumber is
being accepted for eastbound delivery
at present and all space available is
being taken for general cargo.

Portland Firms Get New Goods by
Interrupted transportation arising
from the chaos at European ports is
diverting cargo by various routes to
Portland, shipments in bond having ar
rived yesterday numbering 616 pack
ages that came from many lands. One
lot of earthenware and toys was from
the Orient via the Pacific Mail line to
San Francisco and thence here. There
was crockery from Antwerp; stoves,
glow lamps, 150 sacks of peas and
enameled ware from Hamburg; crock
ery from Rotterdam; asbestos slats
from Amsterdam; sardines from Kopee
vin. and like consignments, some of
which were discharged at San Francisco
from vesesls sailing direct and others
are said to have been carried through
the canal on European vessels and then
brought up the Coast by Pacific Mail
The Oriental movement is accounted
for by the fact the Hamburg-American
has suspended service temporarily and
the Royal Mail fleet was tied up for a
time on the other side, so certain com
modities were booked on the first ves
sels leaving for the Pacific Coast.

Evidently friends of Edward Newbe

on the sugar market might play havoc
with the candy output, for on their de

will be occupied by the Saxon Monarch,
which will be lined by then.
Three big ships were at West Side
docks yesterday, the British f.teamer
Crown of Seville, at municipal dock No.
1, discharging European freight; the
Santa Cruz, at the same dock, unload
ing New York cargo, and ".he British
steamer Cape Flnisterre, at tne bunk
ers, receiving fuel, preparatory to
shifting to St. Johns to take on 400,000
feet of lumber that will complete her
cargo for China. The salmon ship Ber
lin was discharging at the North Bank
dock, and the Levi G. Burgess was in
the stream awaiting a berth there.
The American - Hawaiian freighter
Oregonlan is due Sunday or Monday on
her first trip here, bringing New York
cargo. She is of 8000 tons capacity and
will be followed before the week ends
by the Washingtonlan, of 10,000 tons.
Also the Norwegian steamer Cuzco, of
the Grace West Coast line, will be in
the harbor; the British steamer Hurst
is coming from Eureka to work the
last of her lumber load for Australia
and others are expected along that will

PASSENGERS LAND QUICKLY
Delay for Travelers at Ainsworth Is
Thing . of the Past.
In seven minutes 305 passengers were
landed from the flagship Beaver, of the
"Big Three" fleet, at Ainsworth dock
yesterday afternoon. She reached her
berth at 2 o'clock and was the first
inbound vessel or the line to use a new
double gangplank completed this week.
When a single plank was in service,
which barely permitted a person with
baggage to navigate, it required an
average of 14 minutes to land passen
gers, and with many children or feeble
persons arriving the time has been ex
tended to 16 minutes.
Fair weather, a smooth sea and ab

were reported by Captain Mason. There
were gangs of longshoremen ready to
discharge the Beaver yesterday, and she

RUSH FLOUR ORDERS
Grain Trade Completely Al
tered to Benefit of Indus
try in This Country.
URGENCY ABROAD SHOWN
Interior Mills Sell Output for Two
Months Ahead and Employment
Situation Expected to Be Re
, Moved Wheat Rises.
Millers of Oregon and Washlnston
are receiving- orders for flour to be
shipped Immediately to the Last. This
demand has sprung up suddenly and
completely alters the grain trade situ
ation in the Northwest. It has been a
foregone conclusion that Europe would
need our breadstuffs, but the difficulty
has been in getting the grain and flour
there, owing to the scarcity of ships
and steamers, the perils of navigation
and the difficulty of financing sales.
These obstacles appear to have been
largely removed now. The flour will
be shipped to New York and other
Atlantic ports, either by water or rail,
sold there and then transshipped to
England, or left on the Atlantic sea
board to take the place of American
flour already sent over.
Heavy Movement Expected.
It Is known that a considerable quan
tity of flour and also of wheat has al
ready been sold to go East, and grain
men believe the movement has only
begun. Four or five mills In the in
terior have closed such deals, the desti
nation of the flour being New York
Evidently the need of flour In Eng
land has suddenly become urgent
Grain men were advised yesterday that
the PUlsbury mills at Minneapolis had
sold 100,000 barrels of flour to be
shipped at once, and it was said a total
of 500,000 barrels had been disposed of
by mills in that section during the day.
All the freight that can be handled
out of Portland by the canal route will
doubtless go that way. The American
& Hawaiian line announces a $6 rate
from Portland to New York on flour
and barley and a $7 rate on wheat.
Urg-ency In England Shown.
It England's need of flour becomes
more acute, however, as It seems may
be the case, it will be forwarded by
rail at whatever cost.
The buying of flour rather than
wheat shows the urgency of the Eng
It Is also a good thing for the North
west that the manufactured rather
than the raw product Is wanted, as it
insures the mills of this section a prot -perous
run and increases employment.
Flour milling, next to lumber manufac
turing", is the lnrgest Industry in this
part of the country, and a boom In the
flour trade will have a stimulating ef
fect on all lines of business. Some of
the flour mills In this territory have
already sold their output for two
Wheat prices advanced yesterday in
all the Northwestern markets, but
Portland Is still the cheapest wheat

their European headquarters to finance
the business. The British steamer
Fernley, sent away August 23 with a
full grain cargo, was dlspatchud by

Exporters profess to know of no ma
terial change in the exporting situation,
but there Is an enormous movement of
wheat from the Interior to tidewater, a
proportion of which is to supply the
California demand. As to financing. It
is said that assistance Is being given
"The banks are freely lendng on
wheat, that Is meeting the demand, but
that Is limited owing to storage space,"
said Emery Olmstead, vice-president of
the Northwestern National Bank, last
evening. "I understand that European
Interests are making arrangements to
take care of cargoes."
