WAHT THEM APART
Engineers' Coast Survey Ves
sel Placed in Water
AT 'THE PORTLAND SHIPYARDS
(Boat Will Be Engaged Between Coos
Bay and Columbia River Anna
Chartered for Lumber Gat
zert Laid Off. ,
"I ohristcn thee Arago and I dedicate
thee to the service of the United States
"With these words Miss Charlotte Ballin
broke a bottle of wine over the bows of
the new seagoing coast survey steamer
of the United States engineers as the
vessel slid Into the water from the ways
of the Portland Shipbuilding Company
yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock. The
launching was successful in every respect
and was witnessed by a large crowd.
The Arago Is intended for service by
the engineers department on the coast
between Coos Bay and the Columbia
River, and will pe principally engaged
in taking soundings in connection with
harbor improvements. She is a staunchly-built
craft, the equal of any vessel
of her kind afloat. She was1 designed by
Fred . A. Ballin, the naval architect,
whose daughter christened her. Her
loagth is S3 feet 6 inches over all, she has
AS feet beam, 9 feet depth of hold, will
draw 6 feet 6 inches in salt water ana
has a displacement of 90 tons. Her speed
will bo 1 miles per hour. Provided
some of the machinery constructed in the
Hast arrives on some for installation, the
boat will be ready for service in 30 days.
The cost of the Arago Is $23,000.
Mr. Ballin .designed the steamer under
instructions frorm Major W. C. Langfltt.
United States Engineer. The ' contract
was taken by the "Willamette Iron and
Steel "Works, which provided the machin
ery, but sublet the contract for the hull
to the Portland Shipbuilding Company.
The Arago greatly resembles the Quar
termasters' steamer Major Guy Howard,
but is somewhat larger. She has accom
modations In the forecastle for a crew of
eight men and the after compartment is
provided with staterooms for the cap
tain, ongineer and mates, seven berths
being provided. On the upper deck is a
large deckhouse containing galley, pan
try, wardroom, two staterooms for Gov
ernment officials, toilet-rooms and other
conveniences. On the top of the deck
house is located a large pilot-house,
which will also be used as a drafting
room for the surveyors.
The hull Is constructed of Oregon fir
and oak. the construction of the planking
being diagonal, thus giving the vessel
considerable strength. Throughout the
steamer will be equipped with electric
light, furnished by a direct connected G.
EL generator. .
Tho steamer has a single screw driven
by compound condensing engines, 19 and
22 by 14 inches, of 250 horse-power. The
boiler is cylindrical, eight feet in diame
ter by 914 feet in length, fitted with a 42
inch corrugated suspension furnace. The
boiler is allowed 1G pounds of steam
The Arago takes the place of the old
purvey steamer George "Wright. Her sta
tion will be at Coos Bay.
Atlantic Shipping Improves.
NEW YORK, Dec. 3. Marked Improve
ment has been shown in shipping busi
ness from American ports to Europe dur
ing the last six weekr, according to the
Journal pf Commerce, and tho depression
which has prevailed for many months is
believed "by merchants here to have been
supplanted. Increasingly active demand
for grain accommodation on the regular
steamers was the first to attract atten
tion, and rates for this class of cargo
have. In many Instances, advanced con
siderably. Many large steamers which
have been, laid up for some time are now
being placed In commission.

At the office of the lighthouse engi
neers, notice Is given that a fixed white

of the fog-signal building at Slip Point
light station, strait of Juan do Fuca,
Washington. This light Is an aid to ves
sels entering Clallam Bay and should "be
given a berth of at least one-fourth mile
to clear the reefs extending westerly
from Slip Point.
The log. signal will be established later,
of which due notice will be given.

Portland's musical culture Is certainly
being well taken care of. Musicians of
international experience are continually
The latest addition to this brilliant list
is Mr. C. F. H. Mills, who has recently
opened the Mills Musical College in Port
land. Just from the musical fields of
Europe, Mr. Mills finds In Portland what
he considers a promising field for the
broad scope of his work, which embraces
very thorough instruction in all branches
of theory as well as practical music.
Mr. Mills finished his piano studies in
Lelpsig, Germany, with Edw. Schlrner,
the acknowledged master of technique,
and afterward in London took up an ex
haustive course with William Shake
speare, the famous teacher ot voice cul
ture. With the experience of professorship in
two prominent conservatories, Mr. Mills
is unusually well equipped for his work.
Considering his wide experience. It is
an exceptional tribute to the Chlckering
that this is the piano with which he has
supplied his college.
One of the grand pianos which recently
arrived at Ellers Piano House from the
Chlckering factory was selected by him at
once. It Is a superb concert grand, val
ued at $1600, and one of the costliest
styles made by tho distinguished firm of
Chlckering & Sons.

Old Stagedriver Would Drive to
Lewis and Clark Fair.
Thomas Ranband, one of the overland
stagedrivers of the exciting days of the
early immigration, wants to run an over
land stage line to the Lewis and Clark
Exposition from some point sufficiently
distant from Portland to give travelers
an idea of the methods of travel in the
early days, including the provisions
against Indian attacks. Ranband, now a
resident of Welser, suggests that a num
ber of the old drivers could' be secured to
operate on the stage line. His suggestion

Coming Battle Before Legislature
Bids Fair to Be Close and Exclt
ing, Many Factions Getting
Ready for the Fray.
Amendment to the local option law so
as to separate the question of precinct
prohibition from that of county prohibi
tion in elections, would be supported oy
all temperanco elements, and even by
party prohibitionists, if no othur changes
should be attempted in the Legislature
this Winter. Dr. J. R. Wilson president
of the State Anti-Saloon League, ha3 sig
nified his willingness to see such an
amendment enacted, and so has I. H.
Amos, chairman of tho state prohibition
Many local optionists who voted for the
law last June were surprised In the pro
hibition election November 8, when they
found themselves unable to vote their
home precinct "dry" without voting the
whole county the same way. A large
number of them refused to vote at all,
among them being members of the anti-
The brewing and wholesale liquor In
terests, however, desire further amend
ment of the law to the end that there
shall be precinct option only and not
county option. They would follow the
model of the Ohio, law, which restricts
local option to residence districts ot mu
nicipal towns, exempts brewers and
wholesale- liquor firms and requires the
signatures of 40 per cent of the qualified
electors of a district for a prohibition
I. H. Amos, when asked yesterday if
prohls would fight an amendment for
separating precinct from county option
on the ballot replied: "We would make
no serious objection, but we should fear
that once the act was opened to change
the Legislature . would not stop short of
other alterations which would spoil the
law. That law Is good -Stuff the way it
stands and It can never be made any
Mr. Amos said that his people will in-
stltute proceedings to have the County
Clerk of Yamhill put out of office for
malfeasance They accuse that officer of
disobeying the law In failing to verify
the signatures on the petition for the
county election immediately on receipt of
the petition and to enter It on the rec
ords so that It could have been acted on
by the County Court. The result was
that the election was ordered after the
court had adjourned; therefore the elec
tion has been set aside as Illegal.
The voice of the big prohl chief was
full of thunder when he detailed the
manner In which his sect had been be
trayed. "Swindle" was the word by
which he designated the trick of prohi
bition's foes. And he had just as harsh
a word for the trick which had snatched
away Gilliam and Coos after the people
of those counties had declared themselves
"The great lesson learned by the peo
ple," remarked Mr. Amos severely, "is
that if they wish their moral alms at
tained they must "elect the right kind of
offlcers. The only right kind are on the
prohibition ticket. Any other breed of
officers will Jeopardize their interests.'
Mr. Amos went on to say that If anti
saloon leaguers supposed prohls had been
terrified by the results of the last elec
tion out of trying county prohibition
again In Multnomah County "they are
fooling themselves." The filing of county
petitions, he remarked. Is the most eco
nomical and easiest way because oOO pe
titioners In Multnomah can secure a
county election, whereas more than 2000
are required for precinct elections. The
reason of this Is that 10 per cent of the
registered electors In a precinct must
sign a petition, but that not more than
500 shall-be required In any event.
"Why should we go to the trouble of
securing 2000 signatures," went on the
prohl prophet, "when 500 will suffice? We
