the catch was made up the river.
The Pacific Transportation Company's
new steamer Sue H. Elmore, which Is
now being completed at Portland, was
moved from the 8uppl yards yester
day to the docks of the Willamette
Iron Works, where the boilers and
machinery will be placed In position.
There was some delay In the work ot
construction at the yards and as a
consequence the steamer will not be
ready for service before August 1st,
at the earliest.

The lighthouse tender Manxanlta has
her old crew again, the men agreeing
to go to work on '.he former salaries.
This agreement was arrived at through
the consent of the treasury de
purtment at Washington to conform to
the former schedule, which was re
cently cut down by the local represen
tatlves of the department. The men
will resume their respective duties to
day and the Manxanlta will Immediate'
ly resume her work of placing buoys
throughout the Columbia river district
The consummation of this agreement
Is a distinct victory for the crew, the
members of which quit the vessel be
cause of a material reduction In wages.
A gent I "man who recently returned
from the Alaska gold fields makes the
s(atemnt that most of the glaciers
which abound In that territory are
receding. The fact Is an Indication that
the average weather there Is growing
warmer. If It were growing colJer he
glaciers would be advancing, while If
It were about the tame one year with
another they would maintain the same
general position, neither creeping near
er to the oea nor melting away from
their terroUal moraines. The rata of
glacial recession Is to slow, however,
that fur overcoats and warm sleeping
bags are likely to remain aa a part
of the nesesiary equipment of Alas
ka travel for some years to come.
The steamship Columbia arrived In

having made a fair passage. She

The Columbia's cargo consisted of sev

addition to tht general consignment to
Portland merchants of general mer
chandlse. While the vessel was dts
charging her Astoria freight, whlcl
took nearly three hours, the passengers
strolled about the city and waterfront

however, Immediately grasped the
w heels of the vehicle Just at the proper
moment and a run-a-wav was averted.
Messrs. Cook and Prael speak highly

The New England Grocer, which al
ways keeps closely In touch with the
salmon market, had the following ar
ticle In Its last Issue: "Under the head
of general remarks we have some'hlng
to say regarding the long-expected
prices on Columbia river salmon. While
we expected that the figures would be
high, they are away beyond our ex
pectations. Prices made by the Co
lumbia River Packers Association,
which practically controls the situa
tion, are from $2.50 to 33 p?r case high
er than last year's figures. We may
also state that the pack up to date
Is something like 30,0X1 cases less than
the pack of last year at the same time.
This has hal a tendency to strengthen
the market very materially on snot
goods, especially when 'we take Into
consideration the fact that holdings are
light all ever the country. One "rm of
brokers who are extensle handlers of
salmon, have had several Inquiries
from England for spot goods during the,

leading role In the production of

with John Drew next seanon, and leaves

engagement with Mr. Drew was
brought about by her ierforman;e of
Fay Zullunl, the lesdlng part In Pine-
ro's ' The Princess and the Dutterny,"
played by the Frwey Company at the
California theater last season. When
Miss Scott adopted the stage as a

brimful of talk and wonder at Miss

known as Mrs. Neville Casile, and

That was many moons ago, und the

In an editorial comment on the' pros
pects for trade with the Philippines
In the lumber trade the Ban Francis
co Wood and Iron Journal says: "The
Philippine lumber trade conditions are
already altering their status, and the
Pacific Coast Is beginning to fed the
ePect of lumber demands from those
Islin Is. Of coune the trade conditions
wfll not soon reach any great extent,
but the time will come when Califor
nia and the oth-r Pacific Coast states
will have their annual records of ex
port shipments considerably swelled by
Philippine shipments. The army quar
ters' demand will be liable to reach
significant figures before long, for there
mud be barracks for the troops, and
the hardwoods of the Islands will be
bard to work and dllilcult to obtain
until after the guerillas have ceased
their exactions In all the islands. Then
again, the American residents In and
around Manila and the principal cities
of the other Islands must needs have
houses, for there are not enough pre
revolutUn accommodations to go
around. It will take wme years to de
velop a very heavy trade In lumber
from this coast, but the day of large
shipments Is certain to come sooner or

Being one of . the most remarkable
fighting vesjels of her Kind ever oullt,
naturally a majority of seafaring
men are much Interested. The new
vessel, which haa been christened the
Varlag, Is said to be the fastest crui
ser in the world. She represents the
most modern Ideas In varshlp con
struction, and her armament Is the su
perior of her claas afloat. The re
quired speed is 23 knots an hour, but
her builders declare she can make 35
knots on a pinch. The men who tailed
aboard of her on her recent trip from
Philadelphia say that our own navy
boasts of nothing that Is any better
from either the standpoint of sailing
or general availability. The Varlag vlll
sail for the China station as soon as
she la accepted by the Russian gov
ernmcnt. Her full complement of of
fleers and crew are In Philadelphia, and
when she sets sail for the Orient she
will be In apple-ple order. The crew
Of the Varlag consists 6f ZO officers, 15
petty officers and 600 men. The vessel
Is a protected cruiser, 400 feet long,
53 feet beam and I! feet 6 Inches draft.
Her dlsplacem;nt Is t,500 tons. The
Indicated horsepower Is 20,000, and
steam Is generated by bollirs cf the
Nlclausse type. She has twin screws.
All the vessel's armament was made

HOME FROM INDIA.
Lady Mtsslorary En Route to Indiana
Miss Lily D. Greene, who Is now on
her way home from a six years' resi
dence In northern India, gave a talk
to the ladles of the M. E. church yes
terday afternoon, returning to Port
land laat night.. She left the mission
field in America for a year's furlough,
and has been spending some months
with her brother, who Is a professor
in the Leland Stanford, Jr., University
of Palo Alto, California.
She found the Indian climate not as
bad as usually reported, and for six
months of the year found It very agree'
able. The missionaries usually spend
one month, in the worst season, at
some point in the mountains where
the climate Is similar to our own. She
stated that the missionaries do en-
Joy life, but not In the way that so
many people Imagine. They enjoy It
because their heart Is in their work
and there Is no drudgery. In speak
ing of the famine she said:
"Many of the poor people are try
ing to sell their children because they
are unable to care for them. I was
offered two little girls, not long be
fore I left India, for twenty cents
each. Another ;sad result of famine
conditions is the formation of the hab
it of dirt eating by hundreds who seek
this means of satisfying their hunger.
The habit, if perslflted In, leads to
blindness and then to death, and It Is
almost Impossible to break a child of
the habit if It has been long practised.
"The famine was caused by lack of
rain. Every year there are three
months of rain, I but last year the rain
lasted but one month, and when it
ceased the crops were Just beginning
to sprout, Thn the hot sun baked
the ground and killed all vegetation In
large districts. Over population also
aids in producing famine. There Is
plenty of grain In the country .low, but
native speculators hold it at high
prices. As soon as famine Is announced
In' one district the grain dealers put
up the price all over the country.
The famine relief work, Inaugurated by
the government. Is the construction of
rovls and Irrigation canals. There are
plenty of large rlv.-rs In India, and
in those canals ilea the solution of the
famine problem. In the Punjab, where
the Irrigation works are completed,
there Is no longer -iny famine."
Phe stated that the people of India
were the mcst religious In the world, be
ing very careful and rigid in the ob
servance of their rlli. Hence when
converted to Christianity they make ex
cellent Christians, often putting our
own people to shame with their stead
fastness and devotion. The men give
up their ancient religion much more
readily than the women, the more In
telligent having little faith lo It wheth
er they accept Christianity or not
A good many ladles were out to hear
Miss Greene, and at the close of the
service expressed their appreciation of
her interesting address.
GARDINER'S BAD BKEAK,
Ingalls Will Prefer Charges Aganlst
Him at Portland Today.
V. J. Ingalls is determined to wage
a war to a finish against Superintend
ent Gardiner of the Boys' and Girls'
Aid Society at Portland.
Several days ago Superintendent Gar.
diner sent Deputy Hawley to the real
d'-nce of Mr. Ingalls to take away
little Lena McCurdy, a girl of fourteen,
who had been entrusted to the care
of Mr. Ingalls and his wife many
months ago. The child had become en
dcared to Mr. and Mrs. Ingalls, but
Inasmuch as an sfliclal request that the
girl be returned to the care of the
Home authorities had been made, little
Lena was surrendered to Deputy Haw
ley In this city
Mr. Ingalls iiow states that he Is
convinced that he made a mistake in
allowing the child to be taken away
and will do everything within his pew
er to have ber restored to his home,
He declares that Superintendent Gardi
ner made false representations to the
trustees of the institution that he
might strengthen his own position, and
that bis object in removing the girl
from his home was In conformity with
his usual conduct of the Institution to
the end that his own whims might be
gratified, even though the best interests
of the children be sacrificed.
A meeting of the trustees of the
Boys' and Girls' Aid Society will be
held this afternoon at Portland, at
which time the matter will be brought
up for consideration. Mr. Ingalls, with
the testimonials as to character and
treatment, will certainly make a strong
showing In support of his contention
for the possession of tht girl. Among
those testifying to his responsibility are
Circuit Judge McBrlde and County
Judge Gray. )!.
TRANSVAAL LOSS OF LIFE.
Moralists are discussing the terrible
loss of life brought about by the
Transvaal war. Tet here life la sacri
ficed for a purpose for an honest prln
tlple. It were better to preach against
the needless sacrifice of life. Thou
sands of people succumb to ailments
which might easily have been chew
ed in the beginning. Dyspepsia carries
off more people than are killed in war.
The use of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters
would save many lives. Constipation
may geem a little thing, but it invar
iably develops Into something worse,
and the longer It Is allowed to run. the
harder it is to cure. The Bitters cures
indigestion, constipation, dyspepsia and
biliousness, naturally and permanently,
without shoc'lnff the system. It Is
good for everybody.
