Trip Mr. Esaersea'a First.
This Is the first trip Mr. Emerson
has made to the Pacific Northwest, and
he expressed himself as being agreea
bly surprised by the climate and the
richness of the country.
"I retired from business several
years ago," said Mr. Emerson, "but this
climate Is so Invigorating that It makes
me want to get to active work again.
It la most wonderful. In the East on
the day I left the temperature was

reported and some of New Tork's in
habitant were seeking the beaches

stepped out of the oar at Seattle and
the thermometer recorded " about the
same temperature, but I felt like I was
stepping Into an Icebox. That is the
difference In the Eastern and the West
Mr. Emerson eschewed war, peace
and politics In his conversation, but
was eager to talk about Oregon game
and game birds. He owns a preserve
In North Carolina, where deer, wild
turkeys, ducks and game birds and
animals of all dsscriptlons that he Is
able to secure and raise are run for
hla special benefit and pleasure.
Chlaa Pheasants Iatereat Bias.
He seemed particularly interested in
the China pheasant and asked where
he might obtain birds with which to
stock his preserve. When told that
there were 6000 birds within the city
limits of Portland his surprise was
genuine. There seemed to be no bird
or beast that Mr. Emerson was not
quite familiar with.
Instead of being Interviewed, Mr.
Emerson preferred the role of later
viewer, and hla questions as to the
resources of the state were varied and
frequent But after other remarks had
been made he invariably reverted to
"It le no wonder that the men of the
West are energetic." be declared with
emphasis. "This climate Is bound t
bring out the best in anyone."
Mr. Emerson said that he had some
friends from the East who had gone
to the exposition and had been so en
amored of the climate that they bad
refused to return. "And you will find
any number of Just such cases." ba
Hack Beard A beat Oregon.
"I had beard so much about Oregon
that I determined to go to the exposi
tion by way of Portland, and I am
sorry that our schedule does not allow
us to spend more time here"
Mr. Emerson said that the Federal
reserve system of banking had done
much toward returning buslnese con
fidence. Eastern capital, be said, was
easily obtainable for ail constructive
A huge bunch of roses, the gift of
the Chamber of Commerce, brought
forth enthusiastic remarks aa to tlje
hospitality of the Portland people.
Mr. and Mrs. McAdoo and Mrs. Em

some of his Princeton classmates, who

Ceptain Smith, Commander, by
Visitors Value of Teak-'
wood in Oaf t Is Great.
There were several thousand Port
landers yesterday who gave up their
weekly trip to nearby pointa to view
the old British prison ship Success, at
tha foot of Yamhill street, where there
was a steady stream of visitors from
the time the vessel was thrown open

sold at 10 o clock last nignu
na nartv of nine persons came from
Eugene purposely to see the vessel, so
the spokesman informed Captain D. H.

were families and parties from Salem,

A count made during the afternoon
showed there was an average of 30
persons a minute went aboard, and
below the crowd was such at times
tnat one lecturer would have difficulty
keeping his own followers intact,
though there Is no regulation govern
ing the length of time allowed aboard.
A lecturer leaves the afterdeck every
seven minutes so that newcomers may
be piloted from the poopdeck to the
lower hold, hearing and seeing the
most prominent things there are to
learn of the vessel, after which they
are free to go where they please and
Inspect cells, the torture implements
and like exhibits.
Captain Smith is made the target for
many odd questions, as he stands on
deck assisting in handling the crowds.
One visitor yesterday ventured the re
mark that the value of the material in
the Success was considerable more than
that in the average new vessel, where
upon he was informed that when the
Success sailed from England teakwood
was quoted at 8 cents a pound, and as
the ship is built wholly of that, except
that two of her three masts have been
replaced with other material, he began
calculating her probable value.
The convict ship was remeasured
when she arrived at San Francisco in
tha Snrlnsr. and was found to be of
12,000 tons deadweight. Of that 2000
tons Is said to represent the weight of
iron work and certain deck gear other
than teak, so it is calculated there are
10.000 tons of teak in the vessel.
Another item of value is the copper
on her bull. From the keel the hull is
covered upwards a distance of 14 feet,
and copper stretches from the stem to
keel. When drydocked in England to
have her old copper removed, the seams
eaulked and new copper put on, an ex
pense of 43600 was shouldered and the
copper removed was fashioned into sou
venirs of the Success.
