MILK AND BEEF FOR NOME
OREGON MEX WILL TAKE CATTLE
Expect to Malie Fortunes Supplying
These Luxuries to the Hun
Tho adventurers at Cape Nome are not
going to suffer from lack of fresh beef
or fresh milk this Summer, If they can
scrape enough gold dust together to huy
these essentials, as the first vessels leav
ing for the frozen shores will carry a
considerable number of beef steers and
J. J. Morgan, an experienced stock
drover. Is massing a number of fat steers
on Deer Island, below Portland, and these
are to be shipped North this month, to
gether with fodder enough to keep them
until they are converted Into gold at
Nome City. James Humphrey, a well
known business man of Portland, Is also
getting a band of fat cows together, to
start a milk ranch with on the gold
bearing hillsides, and he expects to put In
his leisure hours between milklngs Jn
working some of those placers, where gold
Is sprinkled among the gravel "from the
grass-roots down." Mr. Humphrey will
leave on the Nome City, but his milch
oows will not start from here until June,
as he desires to take up a ranch and
prepare for their reception before the
stock arrives on the beach.
S. M. Barr. a former hotel-keeper of
this city, whose friends all thought he
had retired from active business, Is also
mobilizing a herd of milch cows -with
which to start a dairy in the land of the
midnight sun. He expects to milk his
cows as long as they will produce the
lacteal fluid, and then turn them Into
fresh beef. Mr. Barr will be among the
first to take cows to Nome.
Messrs. Mattock and Gllman, of Mor
row County, have shipped a band of fat
milch cows to Seattle, to be placed on
board the first steamer that leaves there
for Nome. A number of light draft horses
are also sent along with the cows, as
means must be provided for hauling milk
and butter over the frozen country, while
the milkmen are making their fortunes i
in the short worklnsr sDell of iwv ai: i
the stockmen expect to return to Port
land to enjoy theid hard-earned gold dust
The normal scarcity of beef cattle and
milch cows has been enhanced by the
demand for Alaska, and from $50 to 573
a head has been paid for animals fitted
for tho trip. An additional 5100 a head
is figured on as expense of freight and
fodder, but the milk, like the beef. Is
likely to taste of gold dust by the time
it reaches the extemporized tables of
hungry prospectors of Cape Nome. The
stockmen are not going to Nome exactly
for their health, any more than the rest

Proof Required to Admit to Citizen

The Judges of the State Circuit Court
differ as to the proof required to admit
a man to citizenship who came to the
"United States under the age of IS years.
Such a man may take out his final papers
when he arrives at the age of 21 years,
without having previously declared his
intention to become a citizen. In the case
of an old resident who came to Portland
when he was a boy, and who could not
find his papers, or otherwise never took
any out years ago, although he said he
did. Judge Cleland held that the man
must bring witnesses to swear that they
knew him in this county before he was 18
5 ears old. The man answered that he
would have difficulty in finding anybody
who knew him so long ago. Judge Sears
accepted other evidence, and admitted the

that the new law was entirely without in

banking enterprises under the National

Some of the latter do not materialize in

capital was 156, with a total capital of
$4,045,000, while the number Of applica

The actual Issue of charters to the now
banks la much more conservative than the
approval of applications. The table pub
lished In the Journal of Commerce and
Commercial Bulletin on April 2L showed
that 10 such charters had been Issued fo:
small banks, with aggregate capitals of
$275,000. This number has now risen to IS,
with capital of $515,000. Illinois stands a!
the head of the list with three smafl
banks, with an aggregate capital of $50,000.
Among the larger banks to which char
ters have been Issued since March 14,
New York stands first, with two banks,
with aggregate capital of $300,000. The
total of these cases from March 14 to April
21 Is 17, with a capital of $1,220,000. One
of the most Interesting facts Is the rela
tion of the circulation to the capital.
These 35 recently organized banks, with
capitals of $1.S35,000. have deposited bonds
for circulation only to the amount of
$763,S00. This is a little more than the
minimum legal requirement, but does not
Indicate any disposition to raise circula
tion to the maximum under the Induce
ments of the new law. In many cases
the minimum requirement only has been
met in depositing bonds. At this rate the
organization of 500 banks, with a capital
of $25,000 each, or a total capital of $12.-
500,000, would not add more than $5,WO.Q0O j
to the note circulation. It Is possible that
some of these banks will Increase their
bond holdings from time to time, but ap
parently the present prices of bonds are
considered. In some degree, prohibitive.
The manner In which the bonds are
pouring into the Treasury from the Na
tional banks for conversion Indicates that
nearly all the bank bonds will be con
verted within a few weeks. Delays have
naturally occurred In a tew cases In get
ting the proper authority from the Board
of Directors for the substitution of the
new bonds for the old as the basis of cir
culation and public deposits. The banks
which have the extended twos and the old
fours pledged for circulation are natural
ly somewhat troubled to find new bonds
at a reasonable price to take their places.
The deposits of these two classes of
bonds, however, to secure circulation,
have already dropped to about $25,000,000,
and about $200,000,000 of tho bank bonds
pledged to secure circulation have been
converted Into twos. This leaves about
$40,000,000 of bank bonds which are capable
of conversion which have not been re
ceived by the Treasury. They have been
coming In lately at an average rate of
between $1,000,000 and $1,500,000 per day.
"While this amount Is likely to fall off
from day to day, the bank bonds promlso
to be practically converted Into the ne
twos, so far as they are convertible, by
the close of May or early In June, The
difficulty In obtaining notes and In get
ting the plates for notes above $5 Is un
doubtedly contributing to retard the in
crease of circulation, although this In
fluence does not operate directly upon th
conversion of the old bonds Into new.
FOR NEW FRUIT CANNERY.
Troy Laundry Building: Being Re
fitted for the Purpose.
Active preparations are In progress for
the new fruit cannery to be established
on Grand avenue, at the corner of East
Salmon street. The large building form
erly occupied by the Troy Laundry Com
pany is being renovated and arranged for
the operation of all the necessary ma
chinery required In a good cannery. Man
ager R. J. Holmes is superintending the
work, which consists of some additions
and rearrangement of partitions. Up-to-date
machinery has been ordered and will
soon be on the ground for Instilment.
The machinery for a-fruit and vegetable
establishment Is not elaborate, yet Im
provements are constantly being made In
the process of preparing fruit and hand
ling cans that give advantages to thoso
who study them. The Portland Canning
Company starts out with the purpose of
making Its new plant a credit to the
city, and one of the substantial Institu
tions tending to bring to the forefront
the resources of the Northwest.
For several years only one fruit-packing
establishment has been oparated In or
about Portland. The products of this con
cern have entered the market as among
the best, and not more than one-tenth of
tho fruit within easy reach of the city
has been handled. Good years, the fruit
in and adjacent to Multnomah County
would keep more than 10 canneries of tho
past capacity of the Oregon Packing Com
pany operating In the working season. The
advent of the "Portland Canning Com
pany, therefore, will not materially lessen
the available fruit for packing purposes.
One of the things that has often created
wonder among frultmen is why more capi
tal did not seek investment in packing es
tablishments around Portland. The qual
ity of the fruit, particularly certain
classes. Is everywhere pronounced supe
rior. Shipment of green fruit, with pres
ent traffic facilities, and in competition
with the conditions of early maturity In
California, which bears so heavily on the
profits made on green fruit, has steadily
proven a questionable outlet for Oregon
fruitmen. Cured fruit has a large mar
ket, and brings to Its producers consid
erable profit, but evaporating facilities In
the state and other drawbacks In connec
tion with the marketing have caused fruit
growers to seek other methods of dispos
ing of their crops.
A cannery takes the fruit as it Is
brought from the orchard, without the
necessity of boxing or other especial prep
aration. The fruit, after being canned,
will keep a long time, and Is In condition
to be shipped anywhere. There has never
appeared any reason why Portland should
not be In position to pack fruit as well
and as cheaply as any other locality on
the Coast. Whatever question may be
raised as to other classes of fruit, the
world will give the palm to Oregon cher
ries and pears. An Instance In proof of
this may be cited. A California packing
house one year of a drought asked an
Oregon company If it could furnish some
pears for packing. To make sure that
Oregon could come up to the requirements
of first-class fruit, which the California
men seemed to doubt, several cans of
pears were sent as samples of what would
have to be furnished. The Oregon firm
filled the order entirely out of what was
known in their establishment as "sec
onds," which is the fruit left after tho
first-class grade has been culled out. Thus
Oregon furnished to California fruit con
sidered first class there, but which was
second class here.
As tho packing season does not extend
over the entire year, a packing-house Is
compelled to diversify its work as much
as possible. The excellent vegetables
grown hereabout afford this opportunity.
Beginning with strawberries, which are
on the market before long, a cannery
passes on to cherries, peas, peaches, pears,
beans, tomatoes and other fruits and vege
tables coming Into the market in the Sum
mer and Fall. This leaves the Winter
practically blank, but the new concern
proposes to make jelly, jam, etc., during
a portion of tho period.
COMING BACK TO OREGON.
Farmer "Who Is Dissatisfied "With In
diana. Joseph Blaine, who resided in the "Wil
lamette Valley for 27 years previous to
1SS0, was In Portland yesterday, maklnc
arrangements to move out here from
"Warsaw, Ind., where he has resided since
he exchanged the balmy, peaceful atmos
phere of Oregon for the rigid Winters and
cyclonic Summers of the East. Mr.
Blaine married a daughter of the Hoosler
state, some 20 years ago, and she could
not curb her homesickness long enough
to become weaned from the effete East,
and so the couple sold their fine farm
near Brownsville, and bought one near
"Warsaw. Mrs. Blaine has recently be
bun to long for the perennial green of the
Linn-County hills, and so has given her
consent to the sale of the Indiana farm
and tho repurchase of the old home near
Brownsville. Mr. Blaine spent last week
on the banks of the romantic Calapoola.
In negotiating for the purchase of 200
acres, and all that stands In the way of
the sale Is the disposal of the "Warsaw
farm, which he hopes to consummate on
his return to Indiana.
"To say that I am tired of farming In
Indiana," Mr. Blaine said, "does not ex
press it. "We are shut up for six months
of each year and obliged to sit by an old
stove, while out here In Oregon the gen
tle rain is all that one has to contend
with, and I rather like that. "We have
to bury our potatoes and all ' sorts of
perishable vegetables In stone cellars,
back In Indiana. These cellars have to
bo banked up carefully every Fall, and
during periods of extreme cold a Are of
some kind must be kindled In them to
fortify further against the frost that
reaches to a depth of four feet below the
surface of the ground.
"Then we have failures of crops In
Indiana, something that never worries the
"Willamette fanner. For the past two
years our wheat has been frozen out
In Kosuclsko County, as snow had not
fallen to a sufficient depth to protect the
seed from the cold. "We are trying thh?
spring to replant the frozen wheat lands.
in oats and corn. In order to make the
fields produce something; but by the time
the "wbeat germs are known, to have been
killed it Is too late to prepare for plant
ing some other kind of crop.
"In Oregon the moment a farmer lias
his wheat harrowed in, he can borrow
money on the crop, as no failures, are ever
counted on. Let a man try to borrow on
an Indiana wheat field, and the money
loaners would laugh at him. The only
way a farmer back there can borrow is
to hunt up some personal friend, and
these are not over-numerous.
"I see Linn County farmers are getting
14 cents a dozen for their eggs and 20
cents a pound for their butter, while we
in Indiana are content with 7 cents for
eggs and 10 cents for butter. This hardly
repays us lor the feed we have expended
on our cows and poultry, and there Is
really nothing in It. It Is true we can
get CO cents a bushel for our wheat back
there, while "Willamette Valley farmers
are offered only " 42 cents; but the price
cuts no figure when the crop has been

wife and four children, and the latter are
especially eager to cast their lot in the
beautiful Willamette "Valley.
