Local oarsmen are Impatiently wait
ing for Friday and Saturday, July It
and 'J J, when the fourteenth annual
regatta or the North Paclflo Association
of Amateur Oarsmen will be held In
I this city. - Three crack crews. Van'
couver, Victoria and Nelson will strtvs
for honors with ths local oarsmen, rep
resenting the Portland Rowing - dub.
There Is no doubt but that Portland la
well represented -on the wajer this year,
better. In fact, than aha has been - for
soma time, and . local sports say thst
they are willing and-reedy to back the
home crews to a "fare thee well."
, Of the visitors not much can be said.
Previous sxperlenoe haa taught Portland
that Vancouver and Vlotorla are always
to be respected In every event. Victoria
aiwaya puts out an especially strong
senior crew and her showing at the
coming meet will be no .exception to
former years. Her crew this year, with
tha exception of Dillabougb, ' No. I, la
tha -same that - represented Iter at the
regatta last -year when she carried off
the honors. Dillabougb la an old band
at the work and his accession no doubt
strengthens the crew considerably.'
Vancouver will row one crew 'In both
the senior and junior four-oared events.
This is a rather unusual stunt and ona
not often attempted by a rowing club.
but tbelr junior crew proved to be so far
superior to the seniors that It -was de
cided to let tha babies compete in both
Nelson Is ths dark horse. Very little
is known about her, one was- or the.
other. She is not entered In all of the
events scheduled but will probably give
a good account of herself In- the races
which she does go Into. -
One of the best races that will ooaae
off and the ona about which most of
the Interest is centering will be ' ths
senior singles.- Debrlsay of Victoria la
entered In .this event, while tha Port
land Rowing club offers its three fast-
art men, Patton, Oloss and Lamberson.
At Vancouver last year Debrlsay beat
Oloss, but at the Astoria regatta Olosa
regained bla lost laurels by a small mar
gin. Afterwards Debrlsay claimed that
Oloss, knowing ths course bettsr, had a
considerable advantage over him and
that if they ever met again he - would
repeat the dose that ha administered
to Portland's hones at Vancouver. Thla
hs will attempt to do on the lid. Olosa'
previous performances enable the wise
Ones to get- a line on what ha la able
to and ' will accomplish, ' but where
Lamberson and Patton will on me out

cellent oarsmen and are rowing In-good

than ha haa ever been before.

Burkhardt McCabe and 8 mid. No- other
crews will be represented. Smld Is a
new msn In this country.- He halls from
Zurich, Switzerland, and Is an old oara
man. His late work hss been watched
with a good deal of interest, and he la
generally conceded to be a comer. John
Burkhardt, In the opinion of club mem
bers, would surely win In a contest for
upset singles. Burkhardt has a record
of three spills in one afternoon.
The -club is Dlnnlnar its faith on Rnh
Lamberson and Dug Ball to win in tho
senior doubles. They are ths best bal

they have been taking it a little easier

Charles Spencer, purser, on his father's
steamer; made th following atatement:
"On Wednesday afternoon th captain
of the Bailey Gatesrt refused to answer
th Spencer' call for assistance. W
carried line out -In a small boat to ths
Bailey Gatsert and begged the captain
to to" ths stranded steamer 'out Into
deep water. - The captain said that he
had received order from the manager
of the company not to give aid to the
disabled steamer, and he steamed on up
the river without further parley."
Captain Spencer also says thst the
Gatsert declined to give any assistance
despite the fact that about a couple ''of
-months ago he offered to pull on of
the Regulator boats off a sand bar at
The DoJles. .
George vv. Simons, representative of
the' Regulator -line,- when asked this
morning concerning th alleged refusal
of the. Bailey Gatsert' to co to the
assistance of th Spencer Wednesday
-Why should sh have goneT The
Oatxert la not a wrecking boat; aha 1 a
passenger steamer. Had sh been at
the scene of the accident on Tuesday,
the day that it happened, th Gatsert
would have rendered, whatever assist
sncs that she could. Captain Sherman,
her master, would have mad every at
tempt in his. power to have saved th
passengers and boat had he seen them
In danger. . But when passing a wrecked
vessel 24 hours later ther 1 no written
or unwritten law by which he would be
supposed to stop, put lines on her and
tow her out into deep water. Before
taking such a courae he would have to
receive orders from ths head office,
which is her In Portland. At that time
It was nothing but case of salvage."

so Quickly that I hav been credited with

to' bestow, and in a faw days other
hav come from th sams sources fairly
singing with joy and gratitude over
th wonderful restoration to health my
treatment bag accomplished.: rr-
Prof.. Adkln disdains the use or au
"isms" or dangerous drugs, saying:
"Whll it Is true that I cur thousands
whom I nirr see, there is nothing u-
pernatural about my method. It is
sclenUflo to th highest degree, how
ever wonderful and pussllng it may be
to doctor and .scientists. I hav at
last discovered the long lost secret of
nature that sages and chemist have
been unsuccessfully seeking for centu
ries past." ! waa convinced that ther
was a power above and beyond drug
and medicine, as superior to them as
electricity is to a tallow candle. Almoat
by accident this wonderful sscret waa
revealed to me in all lta majestic sim
plicity, and now I know that, by means
at thla law of life. I Can combat any
disease, can restore to health people In
the last: stages or what are usually latat
Illnesses. It 1 nothing what other doc
tore may say; no matter how chronio
the trouble or how. hopelees or Incur
able th oaa may seem." Over twenty
Rhyslclans, specialists in tneir practioe,
ave taken up the atudy of Prof. Ad
kln's methods, some of them staying
with him and dally witnessing ths -almost
miraculous curea he performs.
From htm rich and poor altks receive
the same treatment and uniform cour
tesy which have "Won him so many
friends among th Influential men of
the country. , .
fina of tha most marvelous things
about this man's miraculous power Is
his proved ability to cur mose tnou
sands of mllea away as saslly and
qulcltly as though he stood by their
hedalria. It would seem beyond doubt
that the thought-transference, msgnetlo
wave of the will, or- some mysterious
esoteric snerg-y can be - shot through
space as telegrams ar sent without
wires; but the nature of this potent
electrlo fluid and how It takes hold and
quickly rids the bndy of material dis

Th reporter, denlrlng to learn more
about th case of Mr. Hubbard and
other patients cured by this sovereign
low of life, requested Prof. -Adkln for
further details. In' response the Von-der-worker
said: "Perhaps it would be
