Inspector, according to reporta made
to the ilcCabe Company, which loaded

while they realise the work doea not
belong to them and should be bandied
by dockmen. they strenuously object to
railing the Chinese Into serrice ana
propoee to report the Incident to the
Mr. Harbour am Id yesterday that he
had not been Informed of the trouble,
but that when It waa presented to hla
notice he would give It consideration.
At the aame time, he aald. similar casea
had been referred to the department
and discussed at length and aa he rec
ollected It. a decision had been given
In favor of the employment of the
Chinese. The Frank Waterhouse In
terests have a bond filed with the Gov
ernment and by virtue of euch security
they are privileged to escort the Chi
nese anywhere In the city, while even
without a bond they would bo allowed
to have Chinese on the dock and are
responsible only for the disappearance
of a member of an alien crew.
On the part of the stevedores. It la
aald that the principal reason for em
ploying the crew was to facilitate the
leading of the vessel, as It waa neces
sary for the lumber to be gotten
aboard, and If the work waa performed
at night by union men overtime would
have been demancVd. probably entail

which sailed Friday morning, brought
In conalgnmenta of lumber from the
Orient, but the Orterlc. which la due
about May 13. will have no Inward

Asiatic Interests, aa they have routed
Inbound vessels about half the time via
San Francisco, all transcontinental car
go being sent from there East by rail.
Instead of having all move through

FISHER'S NEW JOB
TO CHEAPEN GOAL
Accepts Interior Portfolio With
View of Settling Cases
TAFT GIVES FREE HAND
Congress Expected to Pass Law for
Leasing of Lands on Basis of
Royalty to Government on
All Coal Mined.
SEATTLE. Wash., April 29. (Spe
rlal.l How would the people of Port
land. In common with other cities on
the Pacific slope, like the' best anthra
cite coal at fi a ton?
That condition in the fuel problem
may come to pass if the plans of Walter
L. Fisher. Secretary of the Interior, are
carried out. Secretary Fisher, who Is
not a politician, welcomes the chance
to solve a hard problem. It was he who
settled the seemingly hopeless Chicago
streetcar tangle after everyone else had
given up in despair.
He also ran down the looters -of the
Illinois Central Railroad, who had ob
tained hundreds of thousands of fraud
ulent repair bills. He has accepted the
Cabinet portfolio because It Is a hard
Job and he like the prospect.
He has no Idea of political future.
His sole purpose in accepting the post
Is to settle the Alaska coal problem.
He has been given a free hand by Pres
ident Taft and already has removed
from the Interior Department a number
of officials who were connected with
the Balllnger-PInrhot controversy and
It Is understood that he will effect oth
er resignations among his subordinates
with the Intention of getting the Gen
eral Land Office shaped according to
Fisher Is Conservationist.
In a way. Secretary Fisher is a con
servationist In line with Plnchot. but ha
Is a thoroughly practical man and be
lieves In putting the forests and coal
mines and all other out-of-door re
sources at work yielding profit . to the
Government and the people. The recent
decision at Portland in the Oregon ai.d
California case, and at Spokane In tne
iJoughton case, will smooth the way to
a settlement of the Alaska coal claims.
Secretary Fisher wishes to hasten tha
court proceedings In the Alaska cases,
but can do nothing effective until the
Supreme Court has heard the Govern
ment's appeal In the Stracey cases, of
which the hearing. In spite of every
effort to the contrary, has been delayed
until the October term.
The Issues are so clean-cut that a
speedy decision of the court is expected
and there seems to be no question that
the ruling, whatever It may be, will be
followed by the opening of the Alaskan
coal lands for such use as Congress
It Is expected that the present session
of Congress will pass a law providing
for the leasing of coal lands for their
operation on a royalty basis. While
waiting for the court's decision. Secre
tary Fisher Is preparing for a thorough
survey of the great coal fields of
Alaska something which has never
been undertaken. The geological sur
vey has made some estimates and ex
perts have guessed at what the coal
areas amount to; but up to the present
time there hss not been a real scien
tific expedition to learn the value of
the measures that are said to be the
most extensive and the most valuable
in the world. Information hitherto
gathered as to the coal deposits has
been merely Incidental to the work of
the Forestry Service or of the Geo
Majority Probably Will Lose.
There seems to be not tha least doubt
that whatever way the Supreme Court
decides the esse pending the vast ma
jority of the Alaska coal claimants will
lose their holdings. The evidence of
fraud Is said by land officials to be so
overwhelming that the attorneys tor
the Government are anxious that at
least one case will come to trial, so
that they may demonstrate in court
how claims were taken up by men hired
In the saloons of Seattle and Alaskan
towns to file on claims and then as
sign them. The hearing of the Cun
ningham case was not valuable In
showing operations of land locators,
because the Cunningham locators are
among the cleanest of all the Alaska
groups. The so-called Detroit-Alaska
claims are said to be the most corrupt.
There Is no Intention ef prosecuting
any of the claimants now indicted and
It Is doubtful If an effort will be made
to prosecute the Indicted beads of
groups. The prosecution of those men
might even delay the opening of the
land, which Is the end sought. As to
the Alaska coal claims, a curious fea
ture appears in the failure of land
fraud magazine articles and Congres
sional debates t bring out the fact that
the Guggenheim-Morgan syndicate has
never filed on any of the lands. That
aggregation of capital has built a rail
road which can readily be extended to
the coal fields and very likely the coal
when it Is taken out will be mined by
the syndicate. But this will be be
cause the syndicate has spent 820,000,
000 in building a railroad. The Alaska
Steamship Company, which Is owned by
the Guggenheim-Morgan combination,
has reserved a large area of land on
Seattle harbor for use as coal bunkers.
It was Stephen Birch, of the Alaska
syndicate, who first gave the country
an idea of the enormous value of the
coal fields. At least the Guggenhelms
will carry the coal to market.
Claimants Weary of Conditions.
When the cancellation of the coal
claims is begun, the proceeding will be
to file notice on the claimants to show
cause wh the claims should not be
canceled. Many of the claimants are
heartily sick of the notoriety and ex
pense to which they have been sub
jected and will make no response.
Those who do appear to show cause
will be confronted by the mass of evi
dence gathered by the agents of the
land office. Charges have been filed
against 640 claimants, and 60 more
claimants are under Investigation.
There Is a grand total of 1000 claims
and all the 800 others not enumerated
In the foregoing are under suspicion.
The decision as to cancellation will
rest with the land office and under
the present policy the outlook for the
claimants Is decidedly poor. It Is not
at all unreasonable to expect a settle
ment of the whole controversy before
the end of the year. There will be no
appeal from the decision of the Su
preme Court and It the decision Is ad
verse to the present locators there Is
no doubt that public sentiment would
not permit that the lands be located by
Individuals or corporations.
"The time has gone past." obaerved
Attorney-General George Wlckershara
at the Arctic Club smoker last Sum
mer, when discussing the Alaska coal
claims, "for the Government to give
away any of Its valuable property."
Tha delay In the hearing before the
Supreme Court will afford Secretary!
Fisher an opportunity to become Intl
mately familiar with a - situation so
complex as to have baffled all who
have undertaken to master it. On this
point Falcon Joslin, of Fairbanks,
president of the Tanana Valley Rail
road, who is in Seattle after a visit
to Washington. D. C, says the Impres
sion that Secretary Fisher was to be
gin his official career by throwing open
the coal fields Is entirely wrong.
"The whole trend 6f his talk." Mr.
Joslin says, "was that he desired to
put the question oft for careful study,
until some practicable solution of al
loting the lands could be made and the
many-angled legal questions of the sev
eral prosecutions for fraud could be
settled. Just when to expect any action
that will at all relieve the tie-up is a
prediction I do not care to make.
"Secretary Fisher told me frankly
there was no prospect of executive
action prior to the decision of the Su
preme Court. This did not cause me as
mucf uneasiness, however, as his
further statenent as to allotment. He
favors a leasing plan, whereby the
Government will exact royalty from
each ton of coal mined. If he holds out
for this, and Is backed by the Admin
istration, then the whole question will
revert to tha old fight. It will be
shouldered on Congress and Congress,
as Is evident from the rejection of a
similar proposal at the last session,
will refuse to enact such a bill. Sec
retary Fisher lsvery much In earnest
In his hope of properly adjusting this
costly tangle, but I fear he will not
prove to be a man of fast action. He
admits that he is not fully conversant
with the question and says he will
have to give It a great Seal of study
before being Justified in making recom
mendations." PORTLAND EXPORTS LEAD
April AVheat Shipments Exceed

I am the only specialist in Port
land who does not advertise a fic
titious name or photograph.
I publish my true photograph,
correct name, personally conduct

ful and reliable, as medical cre
dentials and press records prove.
I maJce this statement so that you
will know you consult a true spe
cialist, who sees and treats pa
tients personally. I possess skill
and experience, acquired In such a
way that no other can share, and
should not be classed with medical
companies. It Is Impossible for a
medical company to attend col
lege. Companies have no diplomas
or license to practice medicine in
Oregon or any other state. Medi
cal companies usually are named
after a doctor. A portrait, whose
personality and identity are In
definite, Is selected and published
as the legitimate specialist of the
office. Hired substitutes, ordinary
doctors with questionable ability,
give consultation, examination and
A thorough Investigation should
be made by every ailing man as to
the specialist he consults. Duty
and destiny to self and those who
depend upon you demand the best
medical attention. I have the abil
ity and I can give you this service.

sonable fee, so that my services

NO MONEY REQUIRED TO
COMMENCE TREATMENT. Many
patients have no confidence In
their doctor because he demands
pay before a cure has been effect
ed, and there are many who have
been misinformed about their con
dition, or through unsuccessful
treatment have become skeptical
and think there Is no cure for
them. I want an opportunity to
treat such cases. It makes no dif
ference about the financial part,
as I accept pay for my services as
benefits are derived, when I am
satisfied the patient is reliable.
Health is capital at Interest. I
