WHAT GEORGE CLARK SAYS.
Ha Tells a Yam on Hon. F. J. Carney j Ice Jam in River Proves Expensive to
Anent Recent Portland Convention. . Inland City.
George Clark, the redoubtable ac
countant, happened Into this office yes
terday and betnsr In a reminiscent
mood, told the following story on his
distinguished Celtic friend, Frank J.
Carney, the new president of the Ore
gon Grocers and Merchants' Associa
tion: Ha says that after the Portland as
semblage had signified Its 8d taste
and excellent Judgment in naming Mr.
Carney for the lofty office and sealed
tt with an unanimous vote, a recess
was taken and the new president
drifted over toward the press table,
and was soon buttonholed by a rep
resentative of one of the big Port
land dallies, who insisted upon having
a photograph of Mr. Carney for re
production in his columns, and asked
him plumply for It At first Mr. Car
ney sought to temporize upon the hy
pothesis that the whole thing was so
entirely unlooked for he could not
possibly be expected to have such a
thing with him, but the reporter was
lnslstant and. suddenly, with bright
ening face and twinkling eye, Carney
slapped his breast, thrust his hand Into
a hidden pocket and actually brought
forth three pictures of himself, one
Including his old home in Ireland,
which he handed to the astounded
newspaper man, with an ejaculation
of pleasure and surprise, at having
happily remembered, on the Instant,
that he had them with him.
The reporter took the three, selected
the best, and handed him the othe-s
with the remark that they could not
use the home scene In anything short
of an extended biography, which might
be produced later, but for the time
being the photo' he had selected would j
answer all purposes, and thanking the j
genial president for the favor, and
complimenting him upon his up-to- j
date readiness In such emergencies, j

PORTLAND. Jiin. 24. Navigation

city have lost thousands of dollars be
cause of the ice blockade In the Co
lumbia river. Agents cf the various
transportation companies say it Is dif
ficult to estimate the losses in dollars
and cents. Every day that an Ori
ental liner Is tied up represents an
actual loss of more than $1,000 to the
owners. The Aragonla has been ly
ing Idle In the neighborhood of St.
Helen's for nearly a week. The Nl
comedla of the same Hne will Join her
For five days the steamer Columbia,
operated by the San FrancHco
Portland Steamship Company, was
held a prisoner In the Ice. In that
time she could have completed the run
to the Pay City and been half way
back to Portland. The Alliance, op
erated by the California & Oregon
Coast Steamship Company, lost four
days in the river. Finally her cargo
was discharged at one of the towns
on the lower river and she returned
down the coast without freight. This
represented a loss of fully $4,000 to
the owners, according to the local
agent of the steamer. The steamer F.
A. Kllburn was obliged to return light
to San Francisco from Astoria and
once more she 1 back in the river,
unable to reach Portland. Her owners
will be out several thousand dollars
by reason of the Ice Jams. 1
The steamer Roanoke, owned and
operated by the North Pacific Steam
ship Company, has been tied up at St.
Helen's sufficiently long to have earned
$10,000 had she been running regular
ly. That much more Is likely to re
main unearned before she reaches
Portland and discharges her cargo.

WASHINGTON. Jan. '.'I.- I'tosldelit
Roosevelt tonight ivcoUed a message
from Atvhblshep Nuitall, chairman of
the Kingston Relief t'xuiinltt.v, ton
derlng thanks for the prompt vllt f
the American squadron. The receipt
today of the full text f the Pavl
Swettenham correspondence, which
did not differ from communications
transmitted by the Associated Press
last Sunday niKht, caused naval of
ficials again to study the situation,
to see it Admiral Puvls had in any
way transgressed the bounds of pro
priety on his visit to Kingston. They
not only found a precedent for this
landing of men to preserve order,

other Hritlsh island in the West In

gave cut a statement bearing on the
subject. In which he says Davis land
ed a party of six marines to guard tho
archives of the American consulate,
and another party of ten to clear away
the wreckage. Later on the earnest
entreaty of the Colonial Secretary and
the Inspector of Police, who spvke for
the Governor (tho Governor being ab
sent from the city and at King's
Mouse, some three miles away), fifty
men were lander under arms from the
Indiana to overawe the alleged mutiny
at the penitentiary containing five or
sis hundred prisoners. Admiral Da
vis then proceeded to visit the gov
ernor at King's House, and was ac
companied to the city by the Gov
ernor. That same afternoon on the
request of the Governor, the men were
withdrawn from the shore and re
turned to their ships. The secretary
then goes on to cite as a precedent
the landing of troops at Port of Spain.

LONDON, Jan. 24. -The colonial of
fice has received telegrams from Gov
ernor Swettenham, explaining the In
cident involving Rear Admiral Davis,
hut not one is of such character that
the authorities will make it public.
The foreign office says It has had no
further communication from Wash
ington and that with the receipt of
President Roosevelt's telegram, the
International side of th. question Is.
regarded as settled. It Is not Im
probable, however, that when Swet
tenham's explanation Is received In
full there will be further communica
tion with Washington. The Associat
ed Press correspondent gained the Im
pression at the government offices to
day that Swettenham' career is at
an end. The colonial office gave out
two report sfrom Swettenham on the
conditions In Jamaica. He says that
up to date 500 bodies have been bur
led In addition to a number of re
mains that could not be dlstlngul-hed
or Identified. The governor estimates
that 200 bodies are still in the ruins
and that It will probably take a year
to remove all debris.
