RELIEF IN SIGHT
Passenger Boat to Be Placed
on Tillamook Route.
WILL RUN FROM ASTORIA
Xi, P. Brandstetter Tnkcs Option on
Passenger Boat and Will Make
Three Trips . Weekly Between.
Astoria and Tillamook Bay.
, Within two weeks a passenger
t earner will be placed on the run be
tween Tillamook and Astoria." maklnjf
three round trips weekly. This will
greatly relieve the congested condition
of present traffic. L. P. Brandstetter.
manager end chief stockholder of the
Portland & Tillamook Bay Steam
ship Company, returned yesterday
fron "illamook and has announced that
he has taken the option on a steam
ship for. service between Astoria and
Tillamook. The vessel has accommoda
tions for 48 people with berths and for
100 people on a daylight run.
Air. Brandstetter announces, further,
that the steamship Golden Gate will be)
kept in the freight service between
Portland and Tillamook Bay. The- new
boat will not come up the river. The
craft on which the option is held is a
vessel measuring 104 feet in length. 24
feet beam and drawing eight feet of
water, loaded. It is stated that she
will be able to make 13 .miles an
hour.
The Portland & Tillamook Steam
ship Company,- headed by Mr. Brand
stetter. formerly operated the steam
ship Argo between Portland and Til
lamook Bay. That vessel was lost No
vember 26, 1909, and later the steam
ship Golden Gate, formerly a fishing
boat, was purchased and placed on the
.Portland-Tillamook run. The Golden
Gate is a freight packet and has no
accommodations for passengers. It is
in the paRsenger traffic that the great
est returns are made.
It has been rumored that the steam
ship lydia Thompson, purchased by
Captain Good of Portland, recently at
Seattle, was the craft on which Brand
stetter had the option. It is hardly
possible that this is the case, as the
Thompson is a vessel much smaller
than the one mentioned by Mr. Brand
stetter and In addition she has not a
license for outside waters.
"BARK VIXCEXXES JS FIXED
IVench Vessel Will Return to Port
. land With Full Cargo.

. The French bark St. Rogatlen, now
' en route from Guaymas to Sydney. Is re

loading of wheat. She will probably
bring coal north from Newcastle. With

port in August or September.
SKW STEAMER TO BE SECURED
Coos Bay Plans Are Changed by
' Wrecking of Santa Clara.

rial.) It Is believed here that the
North Pacific Steamship Company will
lease the dock and warehouse which
lias for some time past been used by
.the steamer Alliance, which was re
.cently put out of service. It. was an
. nounced that the Santa Clara was to
c ome in here soon, but the wrecking of
' that vessel at Eureka prevented the
arrangement being carried out.
It is said, however, that the North
Pacific Company will secure some other
boat to run into Coos Bay and compete
for the Portland trade.

The Financier will say:
According to the monthly bank return,
which has Just teen issued by the Depart
ment of Finance, the Canadian chartered
banks during March resumed the movement
of expansion, which was Interrupted in Jan
uary and February. The gains In deposits
were very large, all four classes showing in
creases. Demarfsl deposits Increased $11.
O00.OO0, notice deposits $8,000,000, deposits
outside Canada $12,000,000, and Government
deposits $2,000,000. The total gain In de
posits was $33,000,000 and. a sit was ac
companied by an expansion In the note cir
culation amounting to $3,600,000. the total
expansion was $37,000,000. which figure
overbalances $20,000,000 the contraction oc
curring In the preceding two months.- .
A heavy Increase In the domestic mer
cantile loans Is also in evidence. The total
shown for this Item $ 64, &50, 05 1es tab-
lishea a new high record. The loans now
are $104,000,000 greater than at the cor
responding date last year.
The available reserves 'show a slight in
crease, owing to the fact that the foreign
call loans and the net bank balances abroad
were Increased by $14,000,000. "

CANCER CURE IS SOUGHT
RESEARCH HOSPITAL HAS EN
DOWMENT OF $1,000,000.
Steps Are Taken to Ctillze Bequest
of Harry Barnato In Mem
ory of His Brother.
LONDON", -April 16. (Special.) The
trustees of the Barnato memorial be
quest of $1,000,000 approved yesterday
of plans for the erection of a hospital
for the treatment of cancer patients
and for cancer research in connection
with the Cancer Charity of the Mid
dlesex Hospital. In his will, Harry
Barnato left $1,000,000 for the purpose
of founding some hospital charity In

and his nephew, Woolf Joel, both of
whom predeceased him.
The trustees Invited the co-operation
as a committee of Prince Francis of
Teck, Lord Cheylesmore, Sir John Pur
cell and Felix Davis. Their decision
was that the wishes of the testator
could be best realized by aiding the
splendid work already done in cancer
treatment and research by the Cancer
Charity of the Middlesex Hospital.
'The trustees purchased an ample site
adjacent to the Middlesex Hospital,
having Its main frontage on Nassau
street. The new buildings will con
tain on the ground floor cancer out
patients' departments, with consulting:
rooms attached and the most modern
sanitary conveniences; a waiting-room,
a spacious hall, staircase and lifts for
patients. There will be a large elec
trical department. including X-ray
rooms and rooms for therapeutic treat
ment, electric baths, surgical therapeu
tics, photographic and dark-rooms and
accommodation for the director, the
sisters, the officers and the committee.
Two new patients' wards are to be
erected, containing 40 beds and made
to lnter-oommunicate with the exist
ing cancer wing of the Middlesex Hos
pital. Ultimately there will be 86
female patients' beds and 24 male pa
tients' beds, with a large day room
for the men.
A further new building will be an
operating theater, with facilities for
students of cancer, having washing,
eterillng, anaesthetizing and recovery
rooms. Another important block will
be the cancer research department. It
is designed to provide rooms and
laboratories for the director and his
principal assistants, and there will be
a large general laboratory, in which
lectures can be delivered. .The new
buildings will be of red brick and stone.

AID.MAY.YET COME
TO COWLITZ REDS
Government Agent Visits Che
halis to Investigate
Old Claims.
FEW OF TRIBE NOW REMAIN
Ike Klnnon, Indian, Tells Pathetic
Tale of How Whites Drove Na
tives -From Valleys. Giving
Them Nothing for Lands.
CHEHALIS, Wash., April 23. (Spe
cial.) Charles E. McChesney, Special
United States Indian Agent, with head
quarters at Seattle, spent most of the
past week in Chehalis making an in
teresting investigation Into the merits
of a claim of the Sowlitz Indians for
a settlement with the Government.
Originally, the Cowlitz tribe num
bered approximately from 3000 to 16,
000 of the native sons of the territory
of Washington. This -was before the
white man came, and at one time their
natural home extended from Kalama
on the Columbia - River northward to
Pierce County, including all the inter
vening territory, westward to the
Coast range of hills, eastward to Mount
Rainier, southward to Mount St. Hel
ens, and down the valley of the great
river of their name to- the Columbia.
At that time they were In practically
undisputed possession of tnls area.
The Cowlitz Indians were naturally
a peaceful tribe, and according to best
reports the earlier whites who came
into the Northwest had little or no
trouble' with them. About the year
1846 a fever scoruge overtook the
natives and the previously powerful
Indian tribe was so badly decimated
that wjien the Indian wars of 1855-'56
broke out, but a remnant of the Cow
litz Indians remained. It Is variously
estimated that when t.ie wars came
there remained of the Cowlitz tribe
probably 700 to 800 in all.
Cowlitz Indians Aided Whites.
During the Indian wars these Cow
litz Indians were friendly f .the
white pioneers, even at the risl if en
dangering themselves from be.. ex
terminated by the warlike Indians. The
latter even carried their threats so
far as to Intimate extermination of the
last one of the Cowlitz people for
their failure to join the war against
the whites. The surviving Cowlitz In
dians say that the Indian chief who
threatened them with death was killed
by their people.
Though fever had reduced the Cow
litz Indians to but a handful of their
former numbers, after the wars a vis
itation of smallpox still further re
duced their number. ' Today, It is esti
mated that there are but 200 full
bloods living, with about the same
number of breeds of various caste. The
present chief of the Cowlitz Indians is
Atwin Stockum, of Toledo. He is now
75 yaers old, and very feeble. When
death takes him. Captain Peter, of Ole
qua, who is one of the best-known In
dians of the lower Cowlitz Valley, will
succeed as chief.
During all the years following the
Indian wars and the early history of
Washington territory, the National
Government never made any land or
money settlement with the Cowlitz In
dians. No reservation was ever set
aside for them, wher they might con
tinue to maintain a close relation, but
they have spent the years scattered
over practically the entire area of
Southwestern Washington which was
originally their home. Some of them
tcday live by fishing and hunting.
Others have secured small holdings of
land, where, in a limited way, they
farm. Some lead a sort .of precarious
existence.
Earlier Investigation Falls.
Years ago a partial Investigation of
their right to a settlement with the
National Government was begun, and
it is stated that the records of the In
dian Department at Washington bear
some interesting lights on the present
investigation, as showing the justice
of the demands of the Cowlitz people.
However, the earlier investigation that
was begun was never finally com
pleted. In that it never reached a stage
where a settlement was made. The
purpose of the present Investigation is
to determine fully the rights of these
long-neglected people.
Harmon & Hull, attorneys of Che
halis, became interested in this matter
some time ago, an dslnce that time
have discovered much valable data on
the subject. It - is reported that the
investigation of Special Agent Mc
Chesney is very satisfying to him as
to the justice of the claim. However,
it any relief is granted the Indians, a
dlans held this week by Mr .McChes-
At one of the hearings with the In
ppecial act of Congress must be passed,
ney at the Citizens' Club room In Che
halls, a most Interesting session was
held. There were two interpreters.
There was a bit of pathos mingled with
the stories of the Indians. Ike Klnnon,
a well-known Cowlitz Indian, who
lives In Eastern Lewis County, proved
a dramatic character. He stood be
fore the representative o fUncle Sam,
his arms folded in characteristic In
dian attitude. .
Red Man's Talk Pathetic.
In earnest and pathetic manner he
told of the early life of the tribe, how
land and game in abundance were
once " theirs, how the white man ap
peared and gradually pushed them off
their lands, the pale faces with dogs
driving away the game, until today
many of them endure hardships and
lead a precarious existence. As Klnnon
spoke, his voice trembled with emo
tion, and the light of days gone by,
when he and his tribesmen were happy
and undisturbed In the great West,
hone from his eyes. He closed with
the typical Indian ending, -I have
spoken."
The outcome of the Investigation and
the future effort that probably will
be made to .do justice to the Cowlitz
tribe will be watched with much inter
est in the Southwestern part of Wash
ing to, where they are best known to
the people.

Remedies are Needed
Were we perfect, which we are not, medicines would
not often be needed. But since our systems have be
come weakened, impaired and broken down through
indiscretions which have gone on from' the early ages,
through countless generations, remedies are needed to
aid Nature in correcting our inherited and otherwise
acquired weaknesses. To reach the seat of stomach
weakness and consequent digestive troubles, there is
nothing so good as Dr. Pierce's Golden Medioal Discov

inal roots sold for over forty years with great satisfaction to all users. For
Weak Stomach, Biliousness, Liver Complaint, Pain in the Stomach after eating.

CONGRESS TO FINISH IX JUXE
Administration Bills Expected to Be
Well Out of Way.
WASHINGTON; April 23. Congress
will adjourn before the middle of June
and possibly by June 1, It Is believed
by President Taft and the Administra
tion leaders. And before that time
it is expected most of the so-called
Administration measures now before
Congress will have been passed, or in
such shape that they can be enacted
Into law soon after Congress meets in
December.
Operating In favor of the early pas
sage of the five Administration bills,
the railroad bill, the statehood bill, the
postal savings bank bill, the conserva
tion bill and the anti-injunction bill
are two factors. One is the fact that
a number of Republican members of
each House wish to get back home as
soon as possible to prepare for the
coming Congressional elections. An
other Is that the passage .of measures
advocated in the Republican programme
Is the surest way, the leaders believe,
of preventing further Democratic Con
gressional Inroads.
