"I have been inspect ing the navy-yard

are building at the Union Iron Works.
We are not lpoking for any more naval
wars, but we like to be ready for one
when It comes. I am much Interested in
coaling stations, which are under my bu

yesterday. "We have a large one at
Bremerton, and hope to have them soon
at San Francisco, San Diego. Honolulu
and Dutch Harbor. "We have one at Pago

and are enlarging the one at Sitka."
"Does the department contemplate the
creation of further nay-ya.rds on tho
Pacific Coast?" was asked.
"So far. we are devoting our attention
more to building up those we have, and I
think we shall be pretty well supplied
when Bremerton is built up," he an
swered. "There has been a good deal of criticism
of Slare Island on account of the diffi
culty of getting ships in and out." re

"I think Mare Island Is a good site."

it is proposed to build jetties from Mare

get more scour in the channel.
Iiavraultn for Coaling: Station.
"I had some lawyers from Honolulu
meet me in San Francisco in regard to
the suit to condemn the leasehold of the
Honolulu Plantation Company on the site
ior the coaling station at Pearl Harbor.
The Government has got all the land and
settled with all the claimants except this
company, but our suit with it has been
tried twice. "We then appealed to the
Circuit Court at San Francisco, which re
manded the case to Honolulu. Howeer,
the lawyers made a fair proposition, which

to Mission Hock, in San Francisco Bay,
an island of about one acre, which is
held by the Mission Rock Company. This
company filled in the tide land around,
eo that it increased the area to about four
acres and offered It for sale to the Gov
ernment as a coaling station. The Gov
ernment found that it had never parted
with title to the original acre, and the
court decided that the Government owned
all the land originally above high-water
mark, and the company owned the rest.
I did not get a satisfactory offer from
the company, so I looked for an alter

do very well near the entrance of San

"How are the new ships getting along

"No, that does not come under my

Inveigle them into places where they lose
their money and get into trouble, for

"The general consensus of opinion
j among naval officers is that we should
build up a large yard there, and this is
being rapidly done. Puget Sound is a
fine sheet of water, and, being near the
frontier, Bremerton is on strategic ground.
Puget Sound can be entered at any time
of tho day or night and at any stage of
the tide, and is easily defended, so that
it has many natural advantages. A num

Electricity on "Warhhlps.
"You have had a great deal to do with
introducing electricity on board warships.
Admiral. Have you done anything new In
that direction?" was asked.
"Well, electric plants are being used
more and more for all auxiliaries on
board warships. The greatest advance re
cently is their use In moving-turrets. The
wires are always well protected, for they
run below the water-line and behind
armor. In case a wire is cut by a shell,
it is much easier to repair than a pipe
used, for steam, water or air. The ab
sence of heat In storerooms is another
great advantage, for steam produces heat
which may Injure the stores."
Admiral Bradford, who is accompanied
"by his wife, left last night for Seattle,
and expects to remain there and at
Bremerton until Tuesday, when he will
leave for Washington.
CLAIMED BY TWO WIVES
J. II. SfcCormlck, A Seattle Painter,
Arrested for Bigamy.
Because he had one wife more than the
law allows J. H. McCormick, a Seattle
painter who drifted Into Portland a few
days ago, was arrested on a charge of
bigamy and taken back to Seattle yes
terday afternoon. There his two wives
await him, and they have combined
forces in the effort to bring their recreant
husband to Justice.
Acting on Instructions from Sheriff
Cudlhee, of Seattle, Detectives Day and
.Kerrigan arrested McCormick at his
room at First and Columbia streets. A
slight description of tho wanted man. to

painter by trade, was wired the Portland
police, and with this slim clue they found
the alleged bigamist and started him
back to his heart-broken wives. Deputy
Sheriff Lamport, of Seattle, left with
him yesterday afternoon..
The first and second -Mrs. McCormicks

This resulted in a committee jof women be
ing appointed, which means that 500
women of the Grange will begin the can
ning of fruits, preparing samples of
grains and grasses and in many other
ways planning exhibits.
It is not the Intention of the Lewis and
Clark Women's Department to consider
alone a woman's building and what will
be seen there, but they are arranging to
put forth every effort to help in the dis
plays wherever they may be placed.
The committee appointed to look after
the collection of pressed wild flowers re

in preparing their examination papers this
June, knowing they were to be selected
and put away for the Exposition. Tho
special committee reports communications
from the South, from ladies who will
make cotton, rice and silkworm exhibits,

Southern Pacific officials have been no
tified that two special trains filled with
troops for Northwest posts will be sent
isorth irom San Francisco on June 19.
It is announced that 12 officers and S00
men are coming to occupy the post at

270 men will be distributed between Forts
Lawton and Wright.
The troops will be brought North in two
special trains, each of eight cars. From
Portland they -will be distributed without
delay to the Army posts which they are
to occupy. The newcomers are said " to
be men who are returning from the Phil
ippines, after, one or two years' service.
The orders bringing the troops North
have been issued because the troops al
ready at these posts are to be sent to the
Philippine Islands at once. It is likely

ONE BRIDGE IS ENOUGH
EAST-SIDE, PEOPLE,. OBJECT TO
PAYIXG FOR.. .TWO.
"Wide Structure Midway Between
Grand and Union Avenaes Ssg
Keated as Compromise.
There will be strong opposition in Cen
tral East Portland to shouldering the
burden of paying for two steer bridges
across Sullivan's gulch, one on Union and
one on Grand avenue. Property owners
for many blocks In all directions are be
coming apprehensive that if two bridge
districts are formed they will be included
and will be assessed heavily to erect both,
which will probably cost between $60,000
and J70.000 all told. They might be will
ing to be assessed for one structure, but
to tho two they will object vigorously.
OF POPE LEO XIII.
A strong protest will be made on the
ground of the great cost of two, bridges
so close together, when one would be
sufficient, A property owner on Union
avenue suggests a single wide bridge,
built midway between Union and Grand
avenues, as entirely feasible. He said:
"It seems to me "that this would be suf
ficient. The approaches could be
widened out and the bridge made wide
enough so that cars from either Union
or Grand avenue could swing onto the
structure without trouble. I don't be
lieve that there would be any serious ob
stacles In the way. At the south Elde
approach part of East Everett street
could be used, while on the north side
sufficient ground could be secured at
small expense. Both Grand and Union
avenues could open onto the wide brldg".
The cost .of such a bridge would prob
ably be more than one built at either
Grand or Union avenue, but the single
bridge would cost at least J30.000 less
than two steel ones built within a block
of each other, which I understand would
cost $30,000 to $10,000 each."

WILL GIVE ROSE SHOW.
Portland Rose Society's Plan to Pro
mote Rose Cnltare.
The Portland Rose Society has deter
mined to give a rose show at Parsons
Hall Saturday afternoon and evening,
June 20. The society will give no prizes
and no rosea will be entered for competi
tion. The plan Is to give a rose exhibit
somewhat similar to the one which was
given at Multnomah field a year ago. The
great advantage of such an exhibit is
that It enables persons who are not fa
miliar with the names of roses to learn
the varieties which they wish to plant in
It is intended by such an exhibit to etim
ulate by practical example the interest in
the culture of roses and In making Port
land the "Rose City." In addition, it
will show people what can be done in the
way of beautifying their grounds for the
Lewis and Clark Fair in 1505. Portland
must depend very largely upon private
grounds to make the floral exhibit for the
Lewis and Clark Fair. This rose show
should do very much In this direction.
The Hose Society desires all people,
without exception, who have roses to ex
hibit them at the rose show, and if the
exhibitors do not know the names of the
roses, the society intends to have rose
experts present who will give exhibitors
the proper names. Glass jars will be fur
nished exhibitors. Even If a person has
only one fine specimen It should be ex
hibited at this rose show. It is hoped that
the people who have extensive rose gar
dens and many varieties will make exhib
its, not so much for the purpose of dis
playing their skill in growing roses as to
make a fine show and to give those inter
ested in the subject the chance to select
Further notice will be given of the hours
In which the rose show will be open.
Mrs. Rose Hoyt has kindly consented to
take charge of this rose show. This Is an
assurance that the rose show will be well
conducted and successful. A number
of ladles have volunteered to assist Mrs.
Hoyt in making the rose show a success.

little girl wasting away. "When she was
two years old she had a terrible sick

The doctor said she had Summer com

Grape-Nuts. After we had given her two

checked and In a short time she was com
pletely well and strong again.
"Then we noticed how her mind too be
