"It is high time' said President Swl
tfert of the 'Port Of Portland commis
sion, this morning, "that the public and
commercial bodies of this city were
waking up to the fact that congress
should pass a river and harbor appro
priation bill, The future prospects of
this port ace at stake. Because a ves
sel drawing 2B feet of water Is enabled
to reach the sea without difficulty, is no
reason that the residents here should
it back contentedly laboring under the
hallucination that ., the , channel needs
no further attention. ,
''At present '.the' channel is. la good
condition, but the Improvements made
are only temporary. After the June
flood the probabilities are,. that It will
once more be in a bad shape. In certain
localities It Is continually filling up.
and there always will be trouble from
this cause until the recommendations
of Major Langtltt are carried out. . In
his annual report to ; the -war ' depart
ment he estimated that with an avail
able fund of 12,700,000 a. J5foot channel
from Portland to Astoria could be main
tained permanently., After the. depth
was once secured, his' Idea Avas to 're
tain It by building' dikes And revetment
work at the various places where the
most trouble Is experienced.
- The, -ohannel was aJao te't;lven a
.unJfpxm width of. 300 feet.ln. order to,
do this the' river would have to .be
madai more , narrow, at certain points,
thus converging the water as much as
possible.
. ; "Owing to the small appropriations
the engineers have always been working
under difficulties. For channel Improv
ing from Portland to Astoria they have
usually had only about $160,000 to
spend. They may have a small amount
this year, but with no appropriation
made at this session of congress, they
will probably have no funds at all for
ioob. V
"A permanent i .channel is what is
needed, and it can easily be had if the
recommendations of Major Langfltt meet
with favor. A little drib only affords
temporary relief. 'With the expenditure
of 12,700,000 It is possible to get a per
manent channel 25 feet deep and 800
feet wide: Once established no further
expenditures In keeping it in good con
dition would probably be required for
years."." f ;
1 Mr.: Swlgert held a conference this
morning with the United States engi
neers,; relative to the amount of funds
now on hand for improvements ' of the
riven , The. best plans -to secure congres
sional action were also taken up. '
"'Something must be done soon," con
cluded Mr. Swlgert,'.'or the .work al
ready dona Is likely to come to naught.
When the money now on hand is. ex
hausted there will be no more dredging
and soon afterward there will be jio
channel.- The general public does not
seem to realise the seriousness of the
situation., , Meetings should be held by
the commercial bodies, and ways de
vised by which an appropriation can be
secured. It might be well to appoint a
legislative -committee and send It to
Washington to do some lobbying. What
ever is done should be done quickly."

TREATED THE CHILD,
Eleanor Edith Mackenzie, the S-year-old
daughter' of Jumes MacKenzle, of
854 Corbett street, died last Thursday
of poisoning by oil of wlntergreen that
was 'takea -Wednesday. First II. li
Jones, a divine healer, was called in and
treated the child.- After he had gone
Dr. Marsh took charge Of the case.
Coroner FInley will hold an Inquest, to
determine the cause of death. -
Mrs.1 James MacKenele said this morn
ing: '
J hold, Mr. Janes In no -manner re
sponsible for the death of my child.
He has performed some wonderful cures
In my family and. I have faith in, him,
In case some of my other children ar
taken sick I will call htm in to attend
them. . The circumstances of the baby's
death were as follows: . Eleanor,, had
accidentally taken an overdose of wln
tergreen. We treated her with the rem
edies customary In cases of this nature,
She became very 111 and we sent for Mr.
Janes, who remained several hours.
When he. left the little girl was greatly
Improved and was sleeping peacefully,
Several hours later she took another
spell and we called In Dr. Marsh, who
lives near us'l We jvould1 have recalled
Mr, Janes but the cars had stopped run
ning ana as we live a long way out did
not want io inconvenience him, as we
did not consider the case serious, neither
did the doctor, .The child died the next
evening after two doctors had treated
her and had held a consultation. I do
not know the cause of the death. , It
may not have been ,the result of the
poisoning, .
"My husband had been ill for-eleven
years and could get no relief although
ha-was traated by several doctors. - Mr,
Janes took his case and he Is now a well
man."
Statement of K.'Bv Janes.
Mr. Janes said: "1 gave Mrs. Mac
Kensle's daughter one treatment. When
I - started the child was in great pain
and very sick. When I - left it was
sleeping- peacefully. Some time after I
had left It took another spell and instead
of sending for me,' her parents called a
near by doctor. This ended my connec
tion with the case. - -
"I have cured many cases like the .one
that has Jusrproved fatal. My own son
was poisoned with carbolic acid and I
brought;-him out, &'fcht'wi. it '.'.
. "Dlvlrfe healing is simply the power
which la secured through .the scriptures
by :' faith ' and correct understanding. . I
have performed dozens of curies that are
remarkable and would cause surprise if
the details were made -public. I have
been called in many times where doctors
had given up hope and made cures."
I .- win Hold Xno,nest. - -
'A'li. FInley, deputy coroner, made
thin statement! . .
""On advice of Distrtet-Attomey-Man-ning
I have decided to hold an Inquest.
After talking with neighbors and others
Interested in the MacKenzle case 'that
seema to me a .wise course. I prefer, to
have a Jury decide the case alnce It
seems to be a matter in which the pub
lic is inclined to demand inquiry to
determine . ,whetbMany one is to blame
for the death of the child, , Because the
case - is that of a1 child and' not of a
grown person able to choose a physician,
I am not inclined to take the respon
sibility of refusing to. hold an inquest."

of the executive board yleaterday

Union avenue. '.The .Judge voiced the
sentiments of the delegation In opposing
the action of the council that ordered
the executive board to advertise for bids
for a steel bridge over "Union avenue,
and to do so at once. He suggested that
the property-owners could pfobkbly in
duce the council to change it mind on
this topic if they could labor with the
members in a special meeting. ' . ,
After discussion it was decided by the
board to defer all action-on the Sulli

taxpayers had met with the street com

to change their-recommendation -to the
council. v ' , . ., '

ginning to wonder if it will be as hard
to locate the boat after they get It as
it was, to Anally let a contract for Its

sigh of relief when Mayor -Williams
cheerfully announced that he had dis
covered a : place at the foot of Alder
street where the river guardian could
rest. .- ' '
"How wide is that lot, your honort"
inquired Architect Ballln,
"About SO feet," answered a member
of the board. , '
"Why, that will never do," said the
architect, "The boat wU be 28 feet
wide. We must have at least 45 feet
for the slip." ' '
Mayor Williams gazed wearily out
on the prospect of another search for
the boat's quarters, and another mem
ber of the board added crape to the
