while in Washington In endeavoring to

at least part of the Atlantic battleship
tleet to Portland during its stay on the
Pacific Obast, Bishop Scaddlng. has been
going over the matter of the channel
and anchorage with the heads of bureaus
in the Navy Department, showing them
by their own charts that there is ample
water to float battleships safely, and he
has presented the same facts to Mr.
Sv'ewberry, who Is arranging the details
f the trip.
The Bishop Informs the Navy Depart
ment officials that next Spring, when the
battleships are on the Pacific Coast,
water in the Columbia and . Willamette
Rivers will be unusually high, due to
melting snows in the mountains, and he
feel reasonably certain after his confer
ences that at least a portion of the fleet
will be eent to Portland.

STUDENTS PACK APPLES
Corvallls Experiment Station Will
Ship Carload of Newtowns.
OREGON AGRICULTURAL COL
LEGE, Corvallls. Or.. Oct. 26. (Special.)
A carload of first-class Newtowns,
from an orchard operated under . a
lease by the horticultural department
at the college, is being prepared . for
shipment, the grading and packing be
ing done by students in the agricul
tural course. The work Is a drill in
that important department of horti
culture, and they get regular . credits
for it in their college work. Two days
were spent" recently by John Castner, a
packing expert from Hood River, in
giving the students special instruction.
The Newtowns being packed for
shipment, are from the. five-acre Meek
er orchard, but a few hundred yards
from the college. The land was leased
last year for purposes of experiment.
A' portion of it was given the highest
scientific -cultivation, and the remaind
er allowed to go in much the same
fashion that is usual on Willamette
Valley farms.- The difference in the
appearance of the two portions Is so
marked as to leave no doubt of the
efficacy of care. Scarcely a single box
of marketable, apples will be secured
from the neglected, portion, while from
the cultivated part at least, 600 boxes
of the finest fruit will be secured.
The test seems to establish that
Newtowns are a desirable variety for
planting In the Willamette Valley.
Professor Lewis declares the color of
the fruit from this orchard is as fine
as can be produced. The apples will
grade H. and Vi tier.

calf today announced that it was definite
ly settled that the Atlantic fleet will leave

nouncement followed a conference neld at
the White House, to which the President
summoned . Secretary Metcalf, Rear-Admiral
Evans, who will command the fleet
on Its cruise to the Pacific, and Rear-Ad-mlral
Brownson, chief of the Bureau of
Navigation of the Navy Department. The
conference was called to continue more In
detail the Cabinet meeting discussion of
naval affairs yesterday. The discussion
related particularly to details of the At
lantic fleet's cruise to the Pacific.
It Is understood that matters were In
such shape that the President was thor
oughly informed on all important items
In the itinerary. Admiral Evans, who
has been confined to his apartments on
account of an Indisposition, looked and
declared himself to be much Improved in
health. The Bureau of Insular Affairs
today received a cablegram from Governor-General
Smith, of the Philippines,
asking that the Atlantic fleet be per
mitted to visit Manila during the week
beginning February 10, in order to at
tend the pre-Lenten festivities.
The fact that the fleet will, not have
arrived In Pacific waters by that time
Mr. Metcalf ' stated ' that the ques
tion of allowing newspaper correspond
ents to accompany the fleet was discussed
and the conclusion reached not to allow
newspaper men aboard, but that officers
of the fleet would be designated to send
such news as might be thought desirable
to make public.
NO PROTEST CAME FROM TOKIO
Root Says Xo Reason' for Not Send
ing Fleet to Pacific.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 2& "No such re
lation exists between America and
Japan as would make It improper to
send the American fleet Into the Pacific.
If there were, the relations between
America and Great Britain, and the re
lations between America and France,
which are the same, would forbid the
maintenance of the battleship fleet in
the Atlantic Ocean."
This was the reply returned by Secre
tary Root to the direct question as to
whether Japan had entered any -protest
against the dispatch of Admiral Evans'
fleet to the Pacific next December. The
statement was made after a conference
between Mr. Root and Ambassador Aokl.

Independent Buyer Causes Sensa
tion in Nci Perce, Idaho.

clal.) A Spokesman-Review special
from Nez Perce, Idaho, says: r
A boost In the price of barley from
85 cents to $1,' oats from $1.02 to
$1.05, and wheat from. 63 cents to 68
cents is the result of operations of
an lndependentgj-ain buyer named P.
W. Lawrence, who bought farmers'
warehouse receipts here today to the
amount of 100.000 bushels.
The flurry in the market situation
started early this morning when Law
rence commenced bidding for farmers'
grain and within three hours the rural
telephone system had spread the news
to all sections of the prairie and the
town was soon filled with ranchmen
who had grain receipts in their pock
ets. The receipts secured by Lawrence
show grain stored at Greer, Tramway
and Vollmer, and Nei Perce is filled
tonight with men and grain buying
still going on.
A report is in circulation tonight that
the Vollmer - Clearwater Company
served notice upon P. J. Fransioli, of
Spokane, that his buyer must' be re
moved or warehouse room will be de
nied for further storage purposes. It
also stfltPd that threats have been made
that grain already purchased cannot be
shipped. This rumor resulted in a
movement being started to erect plat
forms at shipping paints for storing
the remaining crop still in the hands
of the farmers. 1
