6 THE SUNDAY OKEGONIAN, PORTLAND, DECEMBER 4, 1904. RESCUED FAR AT SEA Survivors of Japanese ..Crew j Picked Up by the Garms. TEN DAYS ON SINKING HULK One by One Tney Succumb to Hunger and Thirst Captain Goes Insane and Jumps Into the Sea Before Help Comes. FORT TOWNSEND. Wash.. Dec S. After ten flays of hardship, privation and exposure, two Japanese were taken from a submerged hulk several hundred miles off the coast of Japan and brought here by the schooner W. F. Garms. arriving this morning after a S3 days' passage Irom Manila. The men were part of a crew of ten men who left Toshumura October 4 for two days' fishing In a 15 ton schooner called the Kouplna Maru. On the third day out the vessel struck a rock and filled to the rails. Prior to Failing, a heavy plank had been lashed to the after bitts and on this for ten days the men existed, with no nourishment hut a few fish which floated tip from the hold. One after another the unfortunate fellows succumbed, until October 16 but three remained, including the captain. That day a speck was sighted on the horizon, and believing it to bo land, the half-demented captain started to swim He soon gave up the battle and sank be neath the waves. The men soon recovered under the kind treatment of the Garms crew and made -themselves useful on the tempestuous voyage which followed the rescue. Every sail on the schooner was torn to shreds during the succession of gales which overtook her, and the rudder becoming disabled, temporary gear was necessitat ed, with which the vessel finally made the Straits. Thorough repairs will be made before venturing to sea again. HIGH LICENSE IS THE ISSUE. Albany Municipal Election Will Be Very Warm. A LB ANT, Or- Dec. 3. (Special.) Inter est In Albany centers In the annual city election to be held Monday next. There are three Councllmen to elect this year. The Mayor, Recorder and City Marshall hold over until next year. The question at Issue is closely allied to that which was settled at the resent Pres idential election, when the citizens of Albany and Linn County were given an opportunity to voice their sentiments on the liquor question. At that time the majority of the voters of the county reg istered themselves as favoring a "wet" county and every precinct In Albany gave a majority against prohibition. Now the Prohibitionists of Albany have brought out candidates in every ward in the city, and the question will be fought out along the lines on which municipal questions have been handled for years past. As two members of the Council are now roported to favor a dry town. It will be necessary for the Prohibitionists to suc r eed in but two wards lh order to have control of the Council. Liquordealers and those taxpayers who exerted them selves in opposition to prohibition a.t the recent election under the local option law realize that they have a hard fight before in em. Those candidates who have been brought out by the prohibition element state that as tho people of Albany have registered themselves in unmistakable terms In fa vor of licensed saloons, that they, the candidates, will, if elected, favor the maintenance of saloons with the proper license. On the other hand, the members of the resent Council who are up for re-election state that they will stand on their record; that they favor saloons with a license that is Just to both city and saloonmen, and allege that the uncer tainty of the statements of the high li cense candidates makes it possible for them to place the license so high as to bo prohibitive. Dannals, Dawson and Bowersox, in the First, Second and Third "Wards, respect ively, the retiring Councilmen, are In fa vor of a license somewhere near that now paid by the saloonmen. Tomliason Fo shap and Huston, from the First, Second and Third Wards, respectively, represent the element that Is desirous of a consid erable Increase In the license. Party lines ..ave been abandoned, and the fight will be. on the straight question of whether Albany shall have licensed saloons as at present, or not.

TS'hat is the best and most reliable rem edy for croup, Is a question of vital in terest to the mothers of small children. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has been in use for over 30 years, and has never been known to fail In any case. Mr. T. F. Compton, public weigher at Merkel. Texas, says of it: "I have used Cham berlain's Cough Remedy In severe cases of croup with my children, and can truthfully say It always gives prompt relief." There is no danger in giving this remedy, as it contains no narmrui orujr. if or sale oy au arugguts. I have no pains, and feel much stronger generally." The above is a fair portrait of Miss Mitchell, in the looking-glass, although it by no means does her justice, as she is much handsomer than a mere picture like this can portray. The fact is a woman can't look beautiful "that is drag ged down with pains at regular inter vals, who suffers from headaches, back aches, or spine-aches, frequently. Such a woman soon acquires wrinkles, a sal low complexion, dark circles about the eyes, and a general feeling of weakness, which brings misery of mind and body. To keep one's good looks the body must be healthy the feminine functions must be regular. Woman was not intended to suffer, and there is no reason why she should. A healthy body will usually be a shapely body, and no means at hand will more quickly restore the womanly functions to a healthy state than Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. Dr. Pierce, during a long period of practice, found that this prescription made entirely of roots and herbs, with Pierce's Favorite Prescription does not contain nariujut uru a , World's ATTEMPT TO WRECK Idaho Man Puts Obstructions' on 0. R. & N. Track, ARRESTED, HE CONFESSES j Yfclc No Apparent Motive Than Vcious- ness in Placing a Rock, a Ra?l and a Telegraph Pole at Difffrent Points Before Trrns. 1 BOISE, Idaho, Dec. 3. (Special.) De tectives of the Oregon Short Line have arrested IV. B. Petrie, of Caldwell, for attempting to wreck a train on the night of November 25. He placed a large rock on the track at Lannan Spur, threw a steel rail over the track, two miles south, and put a telegraph polo across the rails near Not us. It appears the fellow was walking up the road late in the night. A freight train, eastbound, struck the rock and later struck the rail. The lat ter was resting on a bank at one end and was thus so elevated that the cow catcher struck it and knocked it aside. That train passed Petrie and he then placed the telegraph pole across the rails and It was struck by a westbound freight a little later. The man was arrested on tho Bolso River, where he was camped, hunting and trapping. When taken to Caldwell and sweated he confessed and told exactly how he had done it. There appears to have been no other motive than simply to cause a wreck. I Petrie walked all the way to Caldwell and was seen by the Ecctlon men In the early morning, the Information given by the latter furnishing the clew that led to the arrest.

SHOT TORE TOP OFF OF HEAD Man in Ambush Meets Death at Hands of Peace Officer. WOODLAND.. Cal.. Dec. 3. Louis Chyte, an old resident of this city, was shot tonight by Constable Parker, who acted In self-defense. Chyte Is still alive hut there is no hope for his re covery. The bullet from Parker's re volver tore off the top of his head. Chyte, it seems, was laying in wait for George Klnkle, an old enemy, at the latter's house, but had been Keen by Klnkle, who thought him a burglar. Kinklo found tho officers and reported the matter and they were after tho supposed thief. Constable Parker said that when he approached the house he stood near the fence. Hearing a noise in the yard, he directed Griffin's atention to ft, and the flatter flashed his lantern la that direc-Jjjers out the use of alcohol, was positive in its action. After using this remedy for many years in his private practice he put it up in a form that would make it easily procurable, and it can be had at any store -where medicines are handled. THE MARRIAGE QUESTION. Although many people marry without reasoning about it, and do not know the word romance they feel it and act it all their lives and are content. There are unhappy married lives, but a large per centage 01 these unhappy homes are due to the illness of the Tvife, mother or daughter. The more civilized or. cul tured a race becomes, doing with less and less physical exercise in the out door air, and with the wearing of corsets and other modish customs, the more likely are the women to suffer from womanly ills. Every woman should know what right living is for perfect health and a fair complexion she should occasionally take a vegetable laxative such as Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. Backed up by over a third of a century of remarkable and uniform cures, a record such as no ether remedy for the diseases and weaknesses peculiar to women ever attained, the proprietors and makers of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription now feel fully warranted in offering to pay $500 in legal money of the United States for any case of Leucorrhea, FemaleWeak ness, Prolapsus, or Falling of womb, which they cannot cure. All they ask is a fair land reasonable trial of their meansof cure. Could any test be more fair showing the faith of the makers t Do not listen to the arguments of the dealer that his own make is better. It means better profit to him, that's all. He insults your in telligence when he tries to make you change your mind, to take a substitute jfor the standard remedy -which has en joyed years of success and the testimony pf thousands in its favor. 1 Dr. Pierce by no means confines him self to prescribing his well-known medi cines. He tells you in the most common-sense way what ails you, what you ought to do, what line of treatment should be followed out in your particular case, and if your case does not indicate the need of his proprietary medicine, he tells you plainly and frankly what you do need, and the best possible method of improving your health. li you are a young woman just entering upon the duties oClife, you should have good med ical advice of a confidential nature. If you're a mother of children, you may want advice about yourself and how best to put your system in order that your children may be healthy. To sufferers from chronic diseases -which do not readily yield to treatment, or to people who are past the youthful stage of life and want confidential advice about their ailments or their physical condition, Dr. Pierce offers to carefully consider your case and give you the best medical advice within his power, free of cost to you.

Chyte had a shotgun loaded with buckshot, one shot of which tore a hole through the top of Parker's hat. Tho later fell, but regaining his feet crossed the street to await developments. In the meantime other officers arrived and the premises were searched. Chyte's body was found In the bushes near the house. LUMBER MARKET IS DEAD. Many Mills in Washington Are Clos Ing Down for a While. SEATTLE, Wash., Dec. 3. (Special.) .Owing to a demoralization of the lumber and shingle markets, scores of wash lngton mills are closing to await better prices. Already a dozen of the larger mills have been shut down and others are joining in the movement, which may become general unless the market can be restored. Shingles are selling on the basis of 51.23 for stars and $1.50 for clears, prices which, with logs firm at $7.50, leave no margin, of profit. The slash In the association lumber price list Is Illustrated by the fact that No. 1 drop siding is selling at $16.o0, and No. 1 floorln- at $18.50. Cargo mills Hood ed with orders are getting higher prices, but complaining that even the better fig ures leave no profit, and many cargo mills are turning down orders. All reports from the East Indicate that stocks arc depleted and practically everything sold here has been shipped, leaving tho mar ket clean on tho Coast. In the circumstances mlllmen sec no rca son save a general demoralization and loss of nerve on account of existing prices. A big demand must come in the Spring, for Eastern railroads are order ing construction materials liberally and building Indications are good In farm and city communities. By closing the mills and readjusting conditions mlllmen hope to stop the sacrifice of standing Umber at an actual loss to the mills. VANCOUVER MUCH ROUSED. Alarmed by Alleged Attempt to Re duce River Appropriation. VANCOUVER , Wash., Dec 3. Special. From recent reports received by E, Crawford, president of the Commercial Club, of this city. It would seem that an attempt Is being made by tho Government officials at Washington to reduce the ap proprlatlon of $60.(00 which was recom mended by the Board of Engineers for im provement of the river channel below this city. In consideration of pome movement to thwart this action, a meeting of the Commercial .Club and citizens and prop erty-holders of this city was called meet at the Hotel Columbia.

With only four of the 'varsity men in the game, the University of Washington played the Seattle Athletic Club to a sfandstill this afternoon. score being 0 to 0. The halves were both short, or the What Sulphur Does For the Human Body in Health and Disease. ' Tho mention of sulphur will recall to many of us the early days when our mothers' and grandmothers gave us our dally dose of sulphur and molasses every Spring and Fall. It was the universal Spring and Fall "blood purifier," tonic and cure-all. and mind vow. this old-fashioned remedv was not without merit. The Idea was good, but the remedy was crude and unpalatable, and a large quan tity had to be taken to get any effect. Nowadays wo get all the beneficial ef fects of sulphur In a palatable, concen trated form, so that a jingle grain is far more effective than a tablcspoonful of the crude sulphur. In recent years, research and experiment have proven that the best sulphur for medicinal use Is that obtained from Cal cium (Calcium Sulphide) and sold In drug stores under the name of Stuart's Calcium Wafers. They are small chocolate-coated pellets and contain tho active medicinal principle of sulphur In a highly concen trated, effective form. Few people are aware of the value cf this form of aulphur In restoring and maintaining bodily vigor and health; sul phur acts directly on the lier. and ex cretory organs and purifies and enriches the blood hy the prompt elimination of waste material. Our grandmothers knew this when they cosed us with sulphur and molasses every Spring and Fall, but the crudity and im purity of ordinary flowers of sulphur were often worse than the disease, and cannot compare with the modern concentrated preparations of sulphur, of which Stuart's Calcium Wafers Is undoubtedly the best and most widely used. They are the natural antidote for liver and kidney troubles and cure constipation and purify the blood In a way that often surprlpes patient and physician alike. Dr. R. M. Wilkins while experimenting with sulphur remedies soon found that the sulphur from Calcium was superior to any other form. He says: "For liver, kidney and blood troubles, especially when re sulting from constipation or malaria, I have been surprised at the results ob tained from Stuart'.n Calcium Wafers. In patients suffering from boils and pimples and even deep-seated carbuncles, I have repeatedly seen them dry up and disap pear in four or Ave days, leaving the skin clear and smooth. Although Stuart's Cal cium Wafers Is a proprietary article, and sold b: druggists, and for that reason ta booed by many physicians, yet I know of nothing so safe and reliable for constipa tion, liver and kidney troubles and espe cially In all forms of skin disease as this remedy." At any rate -people who are-tired- of pills, cathartics and so-called blood "puri fiers." will find In Stuart's Calcium Waf ers a far safer, more palatable and effec- tive preparatlor A luxurious Overcoat may be worn by you this winter at moderate cost, if you'll buy one of our custom-tailored, ready-to-wear garments, which in fit, fabric and workmanship you'll find as satisfactory, or more so, than any that was ever made to. your order by an exclusive custom tailor.
