Portland as tho convention city of 1S05.
The wishes of the lumbermen of the
Northwest were made known to Governor
Chamberlain, Mayor Williams, Senator
Mitchell, the management of the Portland
Board of Trade, Chamber of Commerce,
Commercial Club, and the Lewis and
Clark Board, and all sent long and earnest
Invitations to the convention at St. Louis
urging that Portland be made the next
convention city.
Yesterday afternoon J. -a- Clock, one of
the faithful of this city, received a tele

that Portland had won and that A. H.

The Concatenated Order of Hoo Hoo is a
secret organization of the lumbermen of
the country, with whom are associated
the railroad men who come into contact
with the lumber business and all trades
men who are associated in a general way
"with the lumbering industry.
The order has as its emblem a large
black cat with its tail curled above its

H. A. ' Herri ck, until recently edi
tor of the Sunday Post In Den

York Herald during the Spanish-American
"War, Oxford graduate and a son of an
English baronet, is said to be a fugitive
from Justice on a charge of bigamy. Her

been employed on a local paper for sev

to the Northwest.
Late tonight an Iowa attorney, N. A.

Death of Mrs. Elizabeth H. Ross.
Last Friday Mrs. Elizabeth Hopwood

Ross, died at her home in Jacksonville,
after a prolonged Illness. Mrs. Boss was
born in Pennsylvania on August IB, 1S30,
and came across the plains to Oregon with
her parents in 1851, arriving at Portland
in October of that year. After spending
the "Winter in this city the family re
moved to Jacksonville early In 1852. Gen
eral and Mrs. Boss were married In Jack
sonville January 7, 3853, and they were
probably the first white couple married
there. Their first child, Mrs. Mary Louise
Ross-Stanley, born October S, 1S54, is, so
far as known, the first white female born
in Jacksonville. Mrs. Ross wa3 the
mother of 10 children, nine of whom sur
vive her. General Ross, as it may be
remembered, came to Oregon from Illinois
in 1847, and served in the Cayuse "War in
1S4S under Captain H. A. G. Lee as Second
Lieutenant. He rendered efficient serv

and coaxed him to do the same. They

the hillside at the head of, Montgomery

immense Damage Done In Different
Parts of the State
SAN FRANCISCO, CaL, Sept. 10. A defi
nite report from the scene of the forest
fire raging in the Big Basin Park in Santa
Cruz County states that the fire has been
checked within a quarter of a mile of the
Governor's camp, and- it Is thought tho
danger of tho entire destruction of the
reservation is now past. The situation
at Boulder Creek has Improved, the wind
shifting the blaze and driving the firo
toward tho coast. All danger to the town
is not over, however, as tho water supply
is said to be precarious and tho force of
fighters is worn out after their 60 hours'
labors in other sections of the mountains.
About 1500 feet of the Southern Pacific
Company's snowsheds near Blue Canyon
in the Sierras were destroyed by yester
day's fire. A largo force of men worked
ah night repairing the track, and at 6
o'clock this morning had the work com
pleted so that tho delayed passenger trains
began to move. Freight traffic was also
resumed. The fire destroyed the tele

wood County, in the Santa Cruz Moun
tains, and over the borders of "Mendocino
and Lake Counties, devastating the moun
tains of Marin County and also the um
bered slopes of the foothills in Contra
Costa County and Alameda County.
In the Santa Cruz Mountains the sit
uation is serious in the extreme, and it
is believed at present that the state park
in tho Big Basin, which contains some of
the finest redwood timber in the state, is
doomed. Owing to the beauty and size
of the trees in this park, some of which
are 200 feet high and from 30 to 40 feet
in girth, this forest was preserved intact,
only to disappear, as it Is now feared, in
flames. Down tho mountains to the coast
line, the flames are now sweeping ev
erything before them ranches and prop
erty of all kinds, and it is only hoped
that the conflagration may not extend to
the City of Santa Cms.
The firo in Marin County is now
checked, it is believed, after devastating
an area of 14,000 acres. Many buildings
have been destroyed, and for a time the
slopes of Tamalpals were threatened. An
army of men has been engaged for hours
past in fighting the flames, which have
swept a stretch of country ten miles long
and Tanging from one to five miles wide,

In the Orient"
Paul Cowles It was that said so at the
Hotel Portland on Friday night, and- as
the execiititve of the Associated Press Mr.
Cowles has been traveling through the
war-stricken countries of the Far East
since February last: He returned a few
days ago on the big liner Mongolia, To
his mind the 'transient successes and dis
asters of the warring armies are of less
Importance than the fact that the squab
ble of two nations may mark an epoch
In world-history. It is not only, says Mr.
Cowles, that Japan and Russia are fight
ing, but that the Slav and the Mongolian
ore locked in what may be a death grap
ple, while the Caucasian, stronger now
than either, and supercilious, may have to
reckon with tho winner in years to come.
I had asked Mr. Cowles with which side
his sympathies lay, and he had said that
as the representative of the Associated
Press he was a neutral and had no dis
cernible feelings in tho matter.
v Poor Outlook for America.
"Americans and Europeans say," he
continued, "that if Russia. wins there will
bo little chance for us to trade in Asia.
They say (Russia will restrict foreign com
merce, foster her own industries, and
adopt a policy of Russian possessions for
the Russians. All of this may be true.
"To- tho forgetful I would point out, on
tho other hand, that should Japan win
sho will welcome foreign trade to Asia
with an engaging smile and an open door
and will then proceed to make it impos
sible for the foreigners to sell anything
except raw material, wheat and cotton
and pig iron. Japan will establish facto
ries to make everything we have to sell.
"With her unlimited cheap labor, she will
be ablo to undersell any American or Eu
ropean firm In any line. She may have
to buy tho raw material from America or
Europe, but I cannot see that her su
premacy in the Orient is much more to be
desired, from an American commercial
standpoint, than that of Russia."
Mr. Cowles thinks the chance of China
being drawn into the war is remote, but
were such a thing to happen he believes it
would be a real menace to the Caucasian
and to the Slav. It might mark the return
to power of the Mongol, who for thou
sands of years has surrendered tho scep
ter or tne world to others and slumbered
wrapped in poppy dreams of by-gone glo
ries. "I do not think. China will become act
ively involved in the war." said Mr.
Cowles. "Japan is trying, naturally, to
arouse the Chinese against the Russians,
Dut witn little apparent success. China
firmly believes that she is the superior of
any nation, and doesn't have to fight."

"Winter from San Francisco to take execu
tive charge of tho Associated Press inter
ests in tho East. Months before, Melville
B. Stone, the general manager, scenting
the present trouble, had visited St. Peters
burg to arrange for the gathering of news
at this point. To invade the Russian cap
ital, where legend said was the homo of
secrecy, the Paradise' of the censor, the
original source of red tape, was certainly
bearding the lion in his den, but Mr.
Stone mado a rather startling success of
Before his arrival ir4.St Petersburg the
news obtained from Russian sources was
fragmentary and unreliable. The censor
ship was painfully rigorous. The corre
spondents had no access to the depart
ments of the government, they were
frowned upon by the officials, and the
service generally was unsatisfactory.
r Backed by powerful Interests in Amer
ica, Mr. Stone obtained an extended au
dience with tho Czar himself, and, to
put It briefly, tho result was that the As
sociated Press agreed to open" a perma
nent press bureau in St. Petersburg on
condition that -the Government depart
ments should bo open to the correspond
ents, that the censorship should be abol
ished, that the telegraph company should
grant the association a reduced rate, and
that all dispatches should be expedited,
instead of being subjected to long delays
as formerly.
Van Plehve, the Russian Minister who
was recently assassinated, opposed these
innovations, but after some time the con
cessions asked by Mr. Stone, were
Results Have Been Astonishing.
"The result has been astonishing," sald-f
Mr,. Cowles. "When we remember the
reputation of Russia in the public mind
for secrecy and evasion, the ample news
reports which we are receiving from St.
Petersburg are Impressive. The Russians
are demonstrating indirectly that they
aire not such a dreadful people. Com
pared with the Japanese"
At this point Mr. Cowles' feelings over
came him, but after being remonstrated
with he calmed himself and proceeded to
talk again In ordinary English.
"Of course," he continued, "Japan Is
not to be blamed in a way for her ex
tremely polite and point-blank refusal to
give out any news or to allow the cor
respondents to gather It themselves.
Japan takes tho position that this war is
vital to her, that her national existence
depends on ltd outcome, and she proposes
to take no chances. She. is going to run
this war without the assistance of tho
newspapers, and so far she has certainly
done It very well."
A question as to tho myriad correspond
ents who sailed with bosoms swelled with
ambition and- never got any nearer tho
war than Tokio, raised the storm signal
again in the smooth face of Mr. Cowles.
"Those correspondents," said he, "have
got a legitimate kick coming. They are
not Idiots, and they were certainly treat
ed as though they were lacking in com
mon sense. Perhaps they had no right
to expect to go to the war. Certainly the
Japanese had a right not to take them.
But It was scarcely right to tell the cor
respondents that in a few days they
might reave for tho front and then to
politely and smilingly postpone the de
parture a week at a time for six long
months. They might have been told the
sad, sad" fact at the beginning, and then
they could have returned home."
Almost Perfect Secrecy.
According to Mr. Cowles, however, but
little news could be obtained at Toldo,
even if the censorship were not so strict.
The Japanese have in this war carried
secrecy to suchxa degree that even the
of her and proposed. She thought It was
a good match, and took him at his word.
Subsequently sho went East on a visit,
and while she was away he broke the en
gagement, telling her ho had ceased to
love her. She expostulated, saying she
had informed her friends and relatives ol
her coming marriage, and was humili
ated. Finally the damage suit came. Tha
plaintiff is fair to look upon, intelligent,
and about SO years old.
Police Expect to Make Arrest In Cass
of Chinese Doctor at Once.
Though no arrests were made last night,
detectives who are working to find the
murderer of Dr. Lee Sing Nom are hot
on the trail, know the party who com
mitted the assault, are acquainted with
the manner in which tho assault occurred,
and are waiting only to secure further
damaging evidence before taking the
guilty party into custody. All day yes
terday and all night last night the detec

man who committed the assault is safe

The latest eye-witness to come forward,
and who placed In the hands of a de

aid to the officers and is still helping them
to bring the murderer to Justice.
New Faces In Suburban Schools.
Professor L. H. Baker, principal of the
"Woodstock School, is a new man in this
county. He was principal of the Lincoln
building In Salem for four years. Before
coming to Balem he was Superintendent
of Schools in Yamhill County, and taught
four years in Albany. J, M. C. Mlllor,
who wmN principal ot "Woodstock School,
counsellors of the Emperor do not know
much about anything except the matters
in their Immediate charge.
"They say in Tokio," said Mr. Cowles.
"that, at a meeting of the war cabinet
each member was asked to write out on
a piece of paper his advico regarding a
certain plan. "When this was done all
the slips were handed to the president of
the council, who after reading the sllp3
burned them all without comment. Thus
only one man knew what the vote was.
Another story will illustrate the secrecy of
the Japanese. Before the armies were
sent into Corea the troops at Tokio were
drilled daily. About the time of the em
barkation an order would be given for
aay 10,000 troops to march out into the
country to drllL They would march out,
but when they came back that night only
9000 would return. The other 1000 had dis
appeared. No one noticed their absence.
No spy would count the troops. This
plan would be repeated several times a
day with different encampments, and so,
they say, the transports were loaded be
fore the soldiers were missed."
The 15 correspondents who were Anally
allowed to go to the front with the First
Japanese Army Corps had an extraor
dinary experience, according to Mr.
Cowles. After leaving Tokio they were
calmly informed that all messages must
bo translated into Japanese, sent to To
kio In Japanese, then censored for the
second time, turned back into English and
then forwarded to the various newspa
pers. This newB saddened tho correspond
ents, among whom were many brilliant
writers, who feared to think how their
stories would look after being translated
twice after leaving the battlefield.
Shocks to Correspondents.
"Nevertheless," continued Mr. Cowles,
"they were bearing un under the blow.
when they wero further Informed that the
entire lot of them would be allowed to
send only 250 words a day over the mili
tary wire, and that only when no mili
tary messages had to be sent. This
meant that each man could send six words
a day to hi3 newspaper. The helpless
correspondents decided to take it in turns
and to allow five of their number to file
50 words a day, thus consuming the al
lowance. The finishing touch came when
the first engagement began, and they
were informed that as guests of the Jan
anese Government, the army could not
permit them to place themselves in dan
ger by approaching closer than eight
miles to the battle. Now, as one cannot
describe a battle by hearing the booming
of artillery eight miles away, many of the
correspondents came home disgusted."
The true story of the death of Mr.
Etzel, the Associated Press correspondent
who was shot and killed by Chinese sol
diers, may never be known, but Mr.
Cowles tells the tale current in Asia,
"Etzel," said Mr. Cowles, "took a prom
inent part in the Boxer troubles. He was
an unerring shot and killed many a Chi
naman in the skirmishing. On the occa
sion of his death he was coming up the
river in a Junk, when it was fired on by
Chinese soldiers. Etzel was shot through
the head and killed. The official explana
tion was that the soldiers thought it was
a private Junk, but the tale has it that
they simply 'got' Etzel in revenge."
In the course of his travels Mr. Cowles
visited every point of importance connect
ed with the present war. He was preyed
upon by "unattached" Journalists, by
bankswhlch discounted his money com
ing and going: went into China, Man
churia, Corea, Siberia and those neutral
cities which are neither one. thing nor
the other, but ho likes Tokio best.

NEW YORK. SepL 5. Special Cor
respondence.) By his mysterious con
trol over disease and death Dr. "Wallace
Hadley, the eminent thaumaturgic pan
opathist of this city, has made the hu
man heart beat again in the body ot a
woman rescued from the grave. And
as a result of his successful experi
ments he makes the startling statement
that no disease should cause death. He
claims to have discovered the vital
principle of life Itself, the dynamic force
that creates and maintains existence.
Since making this discovery the cures
made by this man of science have been
ao remarkable, the restorations to life
and heaMth that he has brought about
have been so marvelous that he is cred
ited with possessing some power over
disease and death not given to ordinary
mortals. He seems to have absolute'
control over human life and the dis
eases that attack it Time and again
he has taken men and women pro
nounced hopelessly incurable and on
the verge of the grave and restored
them to life and health in the face of
such apparent impossibilities that he
is credited with working miracles. The
wonder is increased by the fact that he
performs these cures without the use
less drugs dispensed by doctors; and
that he gives freely of his services
without charge to all who are sick and
afflicted, saying, during a recent in
terview: "I believe that it Is my duty to God
and man to help a,ll who are in need. I
am not a millionaire, but I am well
able to afford to do my share toward
relieving the sufferings of mankind and
driving disease from the earth. And
since it is In my power to cure and
drive out disease, I feel that I must not
use this gift wrongfully. I have no
right to deny a poor man the boon of
health, neither do I believe in making
him wa3te his money on useless drugs.
It is not only that medicines often do
more harm than good, but I have found
something as much superior to them as
the sun is to a candle. As evidence of
this my experience has proved that
there is no disease I may not cure since
making this discovery. I do not care
how severe the case may be, how
chronic, how long standing, what other
men have said or failed to do, or
whether the patient has been pro
nounced incurable or not. I am Just as
ready to cure consumption, cancer,
paralysis, Bright's disease, organic
weakness and other so-called incurable
diseases eLs I am to cure stomach and
bowel troubles, rheumatism, nervous
prostration, blood disorders, catarrh, or
any of the other ills that human flesh
Is heir to. I have done so many times
over. Without intending to boast, I
may safely say that I treat more pa
tients in a year than the average physi
cian does in a lifetime, and among
these are numbered cases that are prob
ably among the worst in the country.
And I cure because I Tiave at my com
mand a power over disease so great
that its extent can hardly be realized.
For instance, read this letter from one
of my patients, Mrs. J. G. Whitfield, of
Norfolk, Va., who writes:
" 'I was so near crossing the Great
Valley that my body felt dead and life
less; but you made my heart beat again
and my blood flow through ray veins
once more. I was very despondent
when you came to my rescue. My
stomach, liver and kidneys were in such
a bad state I was afraid I couldn't ever
be cured, and in addition I was afflict
ed with varicose veins and ulcers, that
I thought could not be cured. I was In
despair when I wrote to you, feeling
that it was a chance for life and health.
I suffered untold misery, but now I
can shout for Joy over my restoration
to life and health. I don't feel like the
same person. I do feel so thankful to
you. May God ever bless you.' And
this from Mr. E. C. Bess, of El Campo,
Tex., who says: 'I was as good as dead
when you came to my rescue with your
most wonderful discovery. I was suf
fering the torment of the damned from
rheumatism, liver and kidney disease
and dropsy. It 1s hard to tell which
was the worst, as theyvall set me al
most crazy with pain. rdid not know
a comfortable moment free from pain.

Then why let yourself suffer? This famous doctor knows the action of

my body, and all going at once. Doctor
after doctor had given me up to die,
left me dead, and could do nothing to
relieve me. But you brought me back
to life. I suppose you know how you
did' It and I don't much care about
the how, as long as you did it so quick
ly and permanently. The man I am
now could whip three of the man I
"Then here is another from Mrs. E. J.
Shepherd, of Colfax, Iowa, which reads:
I am one of those poor unfortunates
whose many years have been spent in
bodily affliction. My troubles were
bronchitis, kidney disease and catarrh
of the head, stomach, bowels, I am 64
years of age, and In those years have
tried dozens of doctors and hundreds
of remedies, trying to get well, but
nothing cured me until I took your
force of life. I was confined to my bed
and coughed continually. I was in the
Jaws of death, and felt that the end was
near; but you rescued my body from
the grave and gave me back the health
that I have not had since my youth.
Now I am strong and well, and thank
ful to you and the kind providence of
our Divine Helper.' These are only
random examples, but you see that they
all tell the same story of restoration to
health Jn the face of what seemed cer
tain death. But these and the other so
called 'miracles' that I have been cred
ited with working are not miracles In
the same way as those described In the
Bible. They may seem Just as wonder
ful to the witnesses, but they are in
truth simply scientific phenomena that
demonstrate and prove the great value
of the discovery I have made, a discov
ery that bids fair to upset modern med
ical practice, since now no case may be
considered incurable."
"What is this discovery?" was asked.
"I have discovered what creates life.
I have found w"hat causes disease and
death, and how they may be prevented.
A case of disease is no longer a mystery
to me, whatever it may be to others. I
can see through It as through clear
glass. I see the cause and I know the
cure. Cases have come to me that have
baffled some of the best physicians in
the country; where one doctor has said
the trouble was the stomach, another
said heart, still another diagnosed kid
ney disease or something else. But in
each case I was able to see the real
cause, and by removing It I restored the
patient to perfect health. I have
known stomach trouble to be diagnosed
as heart disease, and heart disease as
rheumatism, and countless other sim
ilar instances. When these mistakes
are made and the patient is treated for
the wrong disease, how can the suffer
ers hope to get well? It Is as if you
tried to cure deafness by wearing eye
glasses. One is Just about as sensible
as the other. But I make a careful
diagnosis of each case that comes to
me, and treat the real cause."
"You spoke of giving your services
"Yes, that is right Any one who is
ill in any way and wants to be cured
merely has to write to me, addressing
Wallace Hadley, M. D.. Office 1024A, 70S
Madison Ave., New York City, telling
me their greatest pain or trouble, their
principal symptoms, age and sex, and I
will diagnose their case and send them
a course of home treatment absolutely
free of charge."
"Do you mean that any one who is
sick can write to you to be'eured with
out paying you any money?"
"Yes, I mean Just that. Both my
services and the treatment I send are
free. I want to prove to the whole
world the value of my discovery, and.
as I said before, I feel that it Is my
duty to give health to all the poor suf
ferers that I can. And I am especially
anxious to cure those who have been
told that their case Is Incurable, that
there is no hope for them to regain
their lost health and strength. If they
will write to me and let me treat them
there Is not only hope, but an almost
obsolute certainty that they need be
sick no longer. And it makes no" dif
ference where they live. A letter does
Just as much good as a personal visit.
I can cure them in their own homes as
easily and surely as if they came to me
or I went to them."
