-Seattle's Leading Spirits, Po-
". litical and Social, All
Wrought Up.
vlVhtle Big Man Smiled, Passed
Compliments and Made Many ,
Friends, His Hosts' Put
Salt in Old Wounds.
SEATTLE, Wash., Sept. 14. (Spe
v cla1.) The coming and going: of Sec
retary of War William H. Taft has
' left more heart burnings and more
.-political friction than any other social
or" political event that has occurred
' here in years.
The Impression seems to be out that
Secretary Taft will be nominated for
President. What may or may not be
J done in the East or by any of the
-. other states has nothing to do with
' this impression, for it is all based upon
.'the enthusiasm with which Taft was
greeted here.
;' "Politically there is disappointment
j among- the leaders in the Taft move
fcment that they were not given greater
prominence in his reception and enter
"tainment. Socially, all the little so
' clety complications that can arise be-
cause one set was overlooked or an-
other failed to arrive in time have
' arisen over Mrs. Taft's entertainment
during the four days the War Sccre
Jf tary's party was in Seattle.
.' ; Taft, However, Gains JFr lends.
' If one wanted to look uDon the
a. humorous features there Is enough inV
; the Tart visit to make It a. vaudeville
J performance, and yet the fact sticks
' out all through it that Taft personally
,' went away vastly stronger than when
,. he came. No one has thought of blam-
lng Taft for the social or political
' complications and the big War Seere-
tary made an impression by his
speeches and receptions In quarters
:. that had been hostile to him before.
I'nqiiestionably Taft impressed him
r self upon the town as a big man and
a pleasing Presidential possibility.
ITaTt won Seattle without any of the
compliments he paid the city or its
f people. (
And the War Secretary distributed
'lots of compliments. For instance, he
was nt the Rainier Club reception
v making a reply; to an Introductory
speech that might have been accepted
humorously 'or seriously. George H.
i Walker told seriously of rumors of
Taft's Presidential ambitions, and he
wanted -to know about it.' Before he
- had concluded his speech. Walker had
pledgecr the Rainier Club's support
':, Now, Walker never Joked in his life,
I and the crowd took it all seriously.
Taft's Keen. Sense of Humor.
i' Taft passed off the demand to know
- of his ambition, but he "Jollied" the
,crowd by an enthusiastic Indorsement
of the city, the possibilities of the
t future, and the amiable qualities of
. the people, concluding with a declara-
tion that if he were a younger man he
would come here. Lots of others have
Vsaid the same thing, but they went
"back East to stay. Just the ame. How
k ever, the crowd took It seriously, and
so did William Jones, president of
".the Tacoma Chamber of Commerce.
;who was a guest of the club. When
Taft concluded, Jones approached the
; War Secretary with a quizzical smile
and said: "I guess you did not see me.
Mr. Secretary."
; "Oh, yes, I did, Jones," responded
'Taft. "You were right over there all
the. time." and Secretary Taft pointed
to the corner Jones occupied.
. Political and humorous complica
tions began with Taft's arrival last
Sunday. T. S. Lippy, the former T. M.
C. A. secretary, who joined the Klon
dike rush in 1897 and made a fortune
in the North, presided at a meeting
, held in the Grand Opera-House. On
. the stage sat all the members of the
Washington Congressional delegation;
and during the course of . the afternoon
'. LJppy referred to the fact that they
t were present, but he described Con
gressman Jones as "the next Senator
from Eastern Washington."
Senator Ankeny took it in good part
and later congratulated Jones upon
his advertising. When that same Sun
day meeting was about to conclude
. Llppy ordered the contribution boxes
passed to raise funds enough to pay
for the session. In both Instances,
: Taft fully appreciated the humor of
,'the situation.
' Taft Found It Chilly.
None the less amusing was an ex
perience that befell Mrs. Taft. She
was the guest the other day of a
women's club that decided to toast the
War Secretary's wife. One of the local
- club women proposed a toast in
. French, another quickly followed with
a toast in German, and a third offered
a sentiment In Italiun. Mrs. Taft's
head was in a whirl trying to follow
the linguistic congress, when another
woman saved the day by proposing a
sentiment in English that all the wom
en present could understand.
' When the King County Republican
Club entertained Taft at a luncheon,
tho seating arrangements were made in
, a. ..haphazard manner, and It occurred
that Senator Levi Ankeny and J. L.
Wilson, political enemies of years'
"standing, were placed side by side.
yV'lien the crowd realized what had
happened it howled with delight, but
It did not relieve the tension between
the two men. Again a luncheon was
served at night and two rival news
paper owners, who don't speak any
more, were placed side by side bv the
arrangements committer nn ih. J
frigidity of the atmosphere almost
made the Secretary shiver in sym
pathy, for he was placed alongside one
of them. On his other hand sat ex
Governor McBrlde, reintroduced to local
Politics by Incident.
.;; ' Hartman's Flying Leap.
: John P. Hartman had something to
do with one of the Taft meetings
Just what has never been explained
save that he had been given a seat of
honor at one of the tables but did not
arrive in time to enjoy it. Hartman
la one of the Fairbanks leaders, but
was set down . to accompany Taft on
Ms trip to the Grand Opera-house,
where he was to deliver an address.
On top of misplacing him at the table,
the automobile started off without him,
and Hartman rushed pellmell through
ihe crowd and leaped upon the running
board of the auto to ride to the thea
ter. Senator riles" friends do not conceal
the fact that they are sore because
Piles was not given greater recogni
tion, in all the arrangements. He pre
sided at one of ' the Ts ft meetings and
accompanied the War Secretary on most
o his trips about the city and to Aber
deen. But Piles, the recognized local
political leader, was forgotten when
arrangements were made for Taft's. stay
in town. For that matter, the Taft
Club was overlooked and it trailed
along as an after consideration, only
figuring in. one reception.
Broken Hearts In Social Whirl.
There are tales told of slights in a
social way, but that is society gossip.
Most of It is well founded, and there
are a lot of sensitive natures that are
uneasy over the .visit of the War Sec
retary. It may never be possible to explain
Just why invitation lists for meetings
of a semi-political nature were made
up as they were, and even the Taft
party knows that leaders in his local
light are. disappointed because his
friends were not consulted more in the
arrangements for his stay. But It
won't hurt Taft Presidential possibili
ties. It merely serves to create more
factional trouble at Seattle.
Movement Begun to Deepen Channel
of Cowlitz ltiver.
KELSO, Wash., Sept. 14. (Spectel.)
This city is again making an effort to
bring before the eyes of Washington's
representatives In Congress the need of
an appropriation for the Improvement of
the Cowlitz River, and following an In
vitation from the people of Kelso, Rep
resentative Cushman and Senator Piles
have signified their intention of coming
here to view the river end to hear the
opinions of the people on the situation.
A reception will be tendered them, in the
Business Men's Club rooms and an effort
will be made to secure their assistance
in the matter. Colonel S. W. Roessler,
of Portland, and Representative W. L.
Jones will be here next week on a trip
of inspection and it is more than prob
able that after years of patient work on
the part of the citizens of this place, im
provement of the Cowlitz will soon be
gin. Senators Foster, Ankeny and Piles
and Representative Jones have already
seen the river and all have expressed a
belief that ship canal could, at com
paratively small expense, be constructed.
A survey has already been made by or
der of Congress and the next thing, after
a recommendation from Colonel Roessler,
Is the securing of an appropriation from
that body.
The plan is to wing-dam the Cowlitz
for four miles, below this place,
straighten the channel and thus compel
the river to deepen itself. - This has been
declared a. feasible idea and a number of
local engineers have stated that it could
be carried out very cheaply. If the idea
is carried out it wi! make of this place
a city of several thousand people. Every
foot of land for fou. miles on either side
of the Cowlitz would then be available
for manufacturing sites, instead of the
few acres which are now procurable for
these purposes. The citizens of Kelso
are wide-awake enough to see the possi
bilities. They are, therefore, doing their
utmost toward securing aid, and that
they will succeed there now seems small
Puget : Sound Dealers Meet Compe
tition From Grays, Harbor.
SEATTLE, Wash., Sept. 14 (Special.)
Puget Sound loggers agreed today to cut
log prices $2 a thousand, making them:
Flooring, $13; merchantable, $10; No. 2,
$6.50. The prices are reduced because
British Columbia and Grays Harbor log
gers have cut their prices and there was
danger that logs from both sections would
be dumped into Puget Sound waters in
competition with the Washington Logging
& Brokerage Company's output.
The prices fixed today, which become
effective at once, are practically the same
as those prevailing on the Columbia

Japan's' Feelings Will
Soothed if Broken Win
dows Are Replaced.
King's Indian Subjects Are Treated
Worse Than Cattle Crowded
Like Sheep In Tumble
Down Shacks.
VANCOUVER, B. C, Sept. 14. (Spe
cial.) Uttle Japan Is formulating her
bill of damages today for the plate
glass fronts smashed by rioters last
Saturday night. The Dominion gov
ernment will pay the bill, which Is not
expected to be more than $5000. The
bill will consist of a long list of panes
of glass smashed in 56 stores and
dwellings. So great Is Japan's respect
and friendship for. Great Britain that
nothing will be asked for' damaged
feelings or wounded dignity. The fed
eral government mav decide to irlve
a cohtraet to a rlazier in Va'ncoffveri
to renew all the broken glass, and the
Japs will call it square at that. Esti
mates of damage claims have been dis
counted during the last fejjr days. The,
reduction followed receipt of cabled
instructions from Tokto that the feel
ings of the wounded glass Is tr.e only
ground for reparation.
After having paid the bill. It Is ex
pected that the Domnilon government
will call on the city to In turn settle
the account. Then will the question
be swung from one of immigration to
one t)f purely politics. Mayor Bethune,
a staunch political enemy of the gov
ernment, declares that Vancouver will
never pay a cent for damage or repara
tion or anything lse. He maintains
that with a foreign population of
10,000, the Dominion government
should maintain its own police force
here, to insure order 'and prevent
riots: '
. Treated Worse Than Cattle. ;
Hindu leaders complained to the Mayor
today that though they are British sub
jects, Vancouver was treating them
worse than cattle. Landlords refuse to
rent them houses heretofore occupied by
Chinese and Japanese. They draw the
line at Hindus.
Tonight a cold rain is falling and there
are hundreds of Hindus who have no
shelter under which to lie. Many have
severe .colds. Last night 150 stayed in one
small house. So closely were they packed
that only a fraction could lie even on the
floor. Another small boarding-house car
ried 250 during the night and here there
was not room for any to place their
blankets on the floor and sleep.
"Ranchers would not use their cattle in
the way the government and the people
use the Hindus," said Interpreter Das
this afternoon. "The treatment is in
human. Many are sick now and may die.
We are trying to arrange with the Cana
dian Pacific Railway Company for the
use of a wharf warehouse for tonight,
which is fearfully cold for my country
men. Yes, it is true that thousands more
Hindus are on the way to Vancouver."
Compelled to Educate Chinese.
The Dominion Government today gave
a ruling that the Victoria School Board
is compelled to provide education for
Chinese, even when everyone knows that
the Chinese are using this attendance at
school to evade the law. Canada charges
a $500 head tax against Chinese, but
provision is1 made that In case the immi
grant is a student and for 18 months at
tends school after arrival he Is entitled
to receive rebate of the total amount of
the tax. The Victoria thool Board found
that fully-grown Chinese "nen were enter
ing the country, becoming scholars In
public schools, being educated free of
charge and then . having presented to
them by the government the $500 tax at
the end of 18 months. Immediately thoy
received this1 money they" became can
nery' workmen or domestic servants.
Protest was made to the Dominion Gov
ernment, but the Comptroller of Chinese
for the Dominion has wired instructions
that officially he must agree with what
looks like a bunco game..

BELLINGHAM, Wash.. Sept.. 14.
(Special.) Millowners of this city
have received a letter from B. Pelly.

Will Confer With Premier Regard
ing Japanese Immigration.
OTTAWA, Ont., Sept 14. Special En
voy Ishii, of Japan, will be here Monday,
when the whole subject of Japanese im
migration will be thoroughly discussed
between the Premier and himself. What
ever damages have been caused by the
rioters will be paid for by the Dominion
government. Vancouver will afterward
be charged with the amount. The policy
of the Dominion is to reduce Oriental
Immigration to the minimum.

OTTAWA, Ont.. Sept. 14. W. D.

This step has been taken in accord

Weakness" Permanently Cured
No other ailment yields more rapidly
under my treatment than functional
"weakness."" No other disorder pecu
liar to men so completely baffles or
dinary medical effort. When a treat
ment cures there Is a reason why It
cures, and when a remedy falls there
Is also a reason why. My treatment
cures because all effort is directed
toward the restoration of normal condi
tions throughout the organic system,
removing all inflammation or over
senslttveness of the prostate gland,
which is the-sole cause of the func
tional derangement. Other forms of
treatment fall because they are based
upon misunderstanding as to the na
ture of the trouble .and are calculated
to excite activity by stimulating the
. nerve centers. I treat more cases of
"weakness" than any other physician,
and I obtain perfect results in all In
stances. Contracted Disorders Quickly
Any one of the ordinary forms of treat
ment may cure, or it may only appear
to cure, or It may show no results
whatever. These diseases are treach
erous and demand the most careful and
thorough treatment. Many a case that
appears practically cured Is all the
while developing chronic complications
that may cause a lifetime of suffering.
The only safety lies in the quickest
cure possible, and that means a cure by
my. own system of treatment. In half
the usual time required, I effect a radi
cal cure, cleansing the membranes of
every vestige of disease and removing
every possibility of chronic develop
ments. Varicocele Cured Without Cutting
Varicocele can be cured without sur
' gery. I am curing cases every dav by
. mild and painless treatment, thus dem
onstrating the folly of resorting, to
harsh and dangerous methods. But one
week at most is required, and seldom
is it necessary to even detain the pa
tient a single day from his business or
occupation. My cures are permanent.
There are no relapses or unpleasant
after effects. The treatment I employ
Is original with myself. There Is no
other doctor who treats varicocele as I
treat it, or who duplicates my cures.
Painless Cure for Stricture
Without cutting or dilating, and by
mild and absolutely painless treatment,
I cure stricture completely. All ob
structing tissue is dissolved, all Inflam
mation or irritation removed, and every
membrane of the system involved is
thoroughly cleansed and restored to
a healthy state. No failures a perfect
cure in every instance.
Specific Blood Poison Positively
Without the use of dangerous drugs, I
drive the very last taint of virus from
the system, and every symptom of the
disease vanlses, to appear no more.
I employ harmless blood-cleansing
remedies only.
If you are afflicted in any way It certainly will be to your best interests to come In and have a friendly
talk with me. It will save you a great deal of worry and anxiety. It will not cost you ONE CENT and you
will not bind yourself In any way to take treatment from me. I will tell you frankly what your condition
-is, and then you can decide for yourself as to whether I shall treat you or not. If you cannot call, write.
Correspondence invariably has my "personal attention and is regarded as strictly confidential. All replies
mailed in plain envelopes.

with the other in presenting the very

In all departments It was a question of
quality. The Umpqua Valley has been
justly called the Italy of Oregon, and
the products of the orchards presented
certainly confirmed this title. Men
from a distance who were absolutely
uninterested in the outcome were pro

The stock parade today occurred in
the forenoon, when there was a limited
attendance, but Its equal has never
occurred In the county or district. For
years the stockmen of this county have
been reaching out for the finest breed
of stock. There are no better horses
raised than are now being imported
into and raised in this county.
In the matter of cattle on exhibition
the past five years witnessed the most
marked change. Formerly there was a
leaning toward beef stock. To day it is
purely a matter of milk and butter.
The ability of a cow to produce butter
fat Is the gauge of her value, and to
this mainly have been turned all ef
forts on cattlemen. This has resulted
In a competitive exhibition, the equal
of which has never been made In the
district. In blooded horses Is the
strongest competition. A common stock
stallion is .no longer demanded, and to
day are found fine blooded horses at

An Important
My Practice
I wish to make special mention of one
feature of my practice of which 1 have
seldom spoken. It is an Important
feature so important - that it marks
the difference between scientific and
unscientific treatment.
There is a deplorable tendency
among physicians to rely upon stork
or ready - made compounds for the
treatment of all cases presenting simi
lar symptoms. Success in one Instance
prompts the use of the same remedy
in another, and little or no regard Is
given the minor detuils and characteris
tic features of individual cases. The
result is inadequate and inaccurate
treatment that fails a dozen times
where it cures once, and that is prac
tically upon a par with the use of
patent nostrums.

be able to treat accurately and scien
tifically, according to the most minute

McMinnville College Reaches
Fiftieth Milestone.
Friends or Baptist Institution Have
Donated $20,000 Within Past
Few Months and School Opens
1'nder Favorable Auspices.
M'MINNVILLE. Or., Sept. 14. All prep
arations have been made fur the opening
of the 15th school year of McMinnville
College, which event will take place under
the most favorable conditions. The con
vocation exercises will be held on Wed
nesday, September 18.
McMinnville College enters upon its
semicentennial with the best prospects.
Formerly a larse debt menaced the in
stitution. But last year the trustees and
faculty contributed the sum of $10,000 to
a college betterment fund. Later on the
business men and citizens of McMinnville
and vicinity took the matter up and
pledged some $12,623 to the college fund.
A jaiOO annuity has since been made. Al
together, the citizens, the faculty and
the trustees who reside In McMinnville
have donated fully $20,000 to the college
fund within the past few months.
The, Baptists of Oregon, Washington
and Idaho have agreed upon McMinnville
College as their educational Institution for
the territory named, and its financial bet
terment, now practically assured, will no
doubt be of sufilcient moment at the close
of the present school year to warrant the
celebration of the semicentennial Jubilee.
Although under the supervision of the
