VOL. VIII THE DALLES, OREGON, SATURDAY, MARCH 30, 1895 NO 76 ORIENTAL STEAMERS Between Portland and China and Japan. START FROM HONG KONG MAY i To Be DerlTed Prom Direct sad Ample Steamer Bervlee Between This City end tli Orient. Portland, March 29. The Oregon Railway & Navigation Company has en tered into a contract with Samuels & Co., of Yokohama, by which the latter will pnt on a steamship line between Port land and China and Japan, to be operat ed in connection with the O. R. & N. Co.'s lines. All of the papers have re ceived the signatures of the parties in in terest, and tbe line is assured. The first steamer is expected to leave Hong Kong May 1, and will leave Portland on the outbound trip June 1. . Another f steamer will leave Hong Kong June 1, making a monthly service between Port land and the Orient. All steamers will run via Yokohama, and during the winter months via Honolulu, taking the northern route, however, in summer. The vessels to be put on have a carrying capacity of from 3000 to 3500 tona each. This line will supply a long-standing need of this city, which has been handi capped in its Oriental trade by not hav ing a direct line to and from that market. Tbe new line will afford ample service for. the accommodation of Port land exporters and importer, and it offeis an opportunity for them to show their desire to ' Lave this very important outlet for their products and . inlet for th.e'ir importations by confining their patronage exclusively to this line and promoting its interests in every way. VThe line will probably be known as the O. R. & N. steamship line, and will probably be operated much as the San Franfiisco steamers of that com pany at present. It will be remembered that a few years ago the Upton line ot ocean steamers plied between China and Japan and this port. No steamship line between this coast and the Orient can be successful unless operated in connection with a rail line, oyer which can be transported to and from Eastern and Central states a . considerable portion of the cargoes car ried by the steamers. The Canadian Pacific's steamship line between Vancouver, B. C, and Japan and China, is operated in connection with the rail lines of that companj-, and the Northern Pacific steamship line be tween Tacoma and the Orient, while not owned by the Northern Pacific Railroad Company, is operated under a close traffic agreement with it, and has all tbe assistance the railroad company crn ren der it. The Upton line to Portland depended upon the Union Pacihc for assistance. This it did not receive, and failed in consequence. The Union Pacific was under agreement with the Southern Pa cific, which placed the latter road in position to dictate tbatfall Oriental ship ments should come via San Francisco, given to the Union Pacific from the Central Pacific atOgden, and as a conse quence the Upton line was unable to make traffic arrangements with - the Union Pacific Company, which then operated the O. R. & N. line under lease. The result was the Upton line was withdrawn, and the present Northern Pacific Steamship Company emerged from it with close connections at Tacoma with tbe Northern Pacific railroad. ' When the O. R. & ST. became divorced from the Union Pacific system and Re ceiver McNeill adopted his policy of re building its business by many and rad ical changes, the re-establishment of an Oriental steamship line naturally sog gested itself. A little later traffic ar rangements were entered into with the Great Northern Railway Company. This' gives a' thorough rail service, re gardless of the action of tbe Union Pa cific on the proposition, and, besides, tbe Great Northern was as anxious as the O. S. & N. for an Oriental steamship con nection. That road has already tried to run a line between Seattle and the Orient in tbe interests of its- line, but it had found it unprofitable, and had to abandon the idea, so it welcomed - tbe prospect of the O. R. & N. joining-hands with it for such a line from Portland. The principle article of exporf from this coast to the Orient is flour, and Portland being tbe greatest of the supply markets for that product on the North Pacific coast, is naturally the best fitted for the initial American port of such a line, so far as location is concerned. In 1893 112,926 barrels of flour were ex ported from this city . to China and Japan. All of this went first either to Tacoma, Vancouver or San Francisco, . and was then reloaded onto the Oriental steam ers a he nour export has been greatly increased by the war between China and Japan, and it is reasonable to suppose that all of tbis staple leaving this port for those countries will be shipped via tbe new line from Portland when it is established, as it will thus save the un loading and loading onto the steamers now required at Tacoma and Vancouver. Besi-les the proportionate exportation of flour from heie as compared with other ports may be expected to increase ma terially on account of tbe more direct service. A large percentage of the flour ship ments to the Orient at present comes from the mills located in the wheatgrow- Ing sections of Eastern Washington. A part of this is shipped via the O. R. & N. to Portland, and thence via the steamer Signal to Vancouver, where it is given to the Canadian Pacific Com pany's steamers, but the bulk takes the more direct route, via the Northern Pa cific to Tacoma, thus saving the hand ling required in the extra loading and unloading on the Signal. A Great Conspiracy Brought to Light. San Francisco, March 29. After many delays the internal revenue de partment has finally succeeded in land eng one of the biggest gangs of counter feiters that have operated in California since the days of the Boyd-Ciprico gang. That combination soM red certificates issued to the Chinese by the custom house in China and reaped a fortune. Boyd ran away to Australia, came back and turned state's' evidence against Ciprico, and afterwards shot himself. Ciprico was acquitted, Kip never came to trial and Whaley fled the country. Another of the gang died before his case was called. There were five conspira tors in the Boyd-Ciprico gang, and there are five in the one just landed. Like its predecessor, it also dealt in fraudulent certificates. Tbe names of the men arrested are : H. L. Fo88, freight clerk of the Oceanic Steamship Company's dock ; James H. Sullivan, formerly deputy county clerk ; Max Katzauer, a new arrival from Vic toria, and said to be the leading smug gler of Paget sound; Fernando D. Cip rico, the man who was tried and ac quitted for complicity in the Boyd- Ciprico ring, , and M. Greenwald, brother of Louis Greenwald, the man now serving time in San Quentin for be Ing mixed up in the operaions of the Emerald smuggling ring. They are all charged with conspiracy in attempting to land Chinese in the United States by means of forged certificates. The counterfeiters were caught in a room down town which bad been a ren devous,' and in which many of their operations took place. The officers had to break in the door, and when they se cured admission they found one man tearing up documents, while another was caught throwing a package of certi ficates out of the window; where they were caught by a waiting detective be low.'

All the members of the gang were landed in the county jail. : The band had already . established agencies at i Vancouver, Boise : City, Helena, Lincoln, Denver, Chicago, Phil adelphia, New York and Victoria, and had laid plans to do business,, not only with the Cbinese they intended to im port, but with as many as possible of tbe 80,000 unregistered Chinese sup posed to be in the United States. Esti mating that they could have reached twenty per cent of the unregistered resi dents, or 16,000. they beheld the profit of their enterprise running far into the millions, and they believed that their fabulous profits would soon be enongh to enable them to bribe officials, buy juries, influence politics and otherwise escape the penalties of their crimes. Seven Chinese firms in this city were in partnership witn tne lorgers, ana they had agreed to take 15,000 of the certificates without much delay. The band is supposed to have begun operations in Philadelphia, where there is a large paper factory and 'printing office, the proprietors of 'which are be lieved to have undertaken tbe contract of making tbe paper. "Perhaps you would not think so, but a very large proportion of the diseases in New York, comes from carlessnes about catching cold,"saya Dr. Cyrus Ed son. "It is such a simple thing and so common that very few people,- unless it is a case of pneumonia, pay any atten tion to the cold. - New. York is one of the healthiest places on the Atlantic Coast and yet there are a great many cases of catarrh and consumption which have their origin. in this neglect of the simplest precaution of every day fife. The most sensible advice is, when you have one get. rid of it as soon as possible, By all means do not neglect it." Dr. Ed- son does not tell you how to cure a cold but we will.
