Alameda, At Sea, Aug. fth.
Editor Independent: There is
something of a feeling not entirely
l . , ,
n to real assurance when one
realizes they are a thousand miles
from land at the mercies of a bit of
wood, iron and a little steam.
I Well, of course, never for a moment
do we forget the keen knowledge ol
our good engineer and captain. Ou
one of these large ocean liners for a
trip to Hawaiian Islands is like
taking room and board for a week
at the Hotel Portland. Everything
is Erst class, the other "boarders" are
here from all over the world. For
a whole week you have nothing to
do but sit around either iu the large
social hall, in your cozy steamer
chair on deck or lounge in your
own lonely appartments. You are
given a nice plate of fruit in the
morning before getting up. At
half past eight a good breakfast in
the dining room, ten o'clock beef
tea is served you wherever you hap
pen to be. A delicious luncheon at
12:30. Afternoon tea at 4 p. m.
A sumptuous dinner at 6:30 and if
there is a hungry spot about you by
that time you can have a supper at
19:30. Ibese meals are all included
in the price of your ticket 011 leav
ing the dock at San Francisco or
Victoria. B. c.
cial gatherings in the evenings. A
week on an ocean liner is worth six
month schooling. You meet and
talk with those of other lands. You
iflrn Bnmtv1;t,lT nn ; ii,
iuuay we are nan way to uonoiu
lu. The sea has been like a placid
bay not a case of seasickness and
each meal is like a great banquet,
every one in good humor and hap
py. Tonight we are going to have
a comet party we will view it
about two o'clock in the morning
The evenings are glorious and as
we are nearing the tropics and the
south seas one is inclined to remain
out in their steamer chair until far
into the night.
We are watching the flying fish
today and they are indeed very in
teresting. You can hardly believe
they are really fish that fly at such
distances and so far out of the wat
er. The coloring is like the plum
mage of some beautiful bird. W

the horizon and you seem to see it
for a long time through the water,
then the cloud effect is beautiful
and sublime. For one who enjoys
astronomy (and most people do)
there is an unobstructed opportun
ity for study. There is no place
where a moonlight night appeals to
one like when lar out at sea. It
seems a guide board to the mariner
and a protector to the traveler when
mues irom me norae 01 loveu ones.
If a person has never had a long sea
voyage they have missed an inspir
ing and imposing condition of life.
Tis true one is apt to "miss much"
and willing to "miss still more" if
it relieves certain "all gone" feel
ings that often overtakes the trav
eler. Sea sickness is one that re
ceives no sympathy it never kills
and is soon forgotten. If one is en
route to the Hawaiian Islands it is
well worth a real bad sea sickness
and on your return trip, no matter
what is cast over you will silllhave
with you that longing desire to visit
the Paradise of the Pacific.

outlines of land were visible. My!
how blessed land is when it has
been out of sight for a week. The
doctor came on board as usual and
"inspected" all passengers and crew
to see that no contagious disease
enters the Island. I was certain of
passing if he did not see ray loot for
it resembled a genuine case of lep
rosy. Fnroute here I stopped over
at Cottage Grove to visit Miss Anna
Oglesby and Mr. and Mrs. D. M.C.
Gault. We took a thirty mile ride
on a train up in the mountains to
Bohemia. While the train was
standing a large tree was felled go
ing down with a tremendous crash
parallel with the train. There was
no danger until it hit another giant
of the lorest and sent it directly at
our car. We weie compelled to
jump about six feet to the ground
and run for our lives. Well as for
me I struck the earth with a thud
that gave my left ankle a terrible
sprain and twisted my limb in such
a way as to lay me up even at this
late date. What became 'of the
tree? Well, it fell 60 near us that
life wasn't worth calculating on for
a moment, and if I live a hundred
years, memory can never efface the
vision of that tree coming at me
The iright equalled my experience
in the Sau Francisco earthquake.
But here I am again in the beauti
ful city of Honolulu my third trip.
One would naturally suppose that a
summer in a tropical climate would
be unbearable I can not notice
any difference letween this and
Portland. The nights are cool and
thus far I have not seen a mosqui
to. Oh, the gorgeous array of
blossoms, the ornamental trees have
the most brilliant coloring.
I will leave here September 4th
with a party of eight Hawaiian
young ladies who are to make a
tour through the Pacific coast
states. It is my intention to visit
Hillsboro and Forest Grove with
them. They are college graduates
and several are iine musicians
they all sing. The girls can hard
ly wait to get started having never
been away lrom the Island it will
be a gieat trip for them. They re
present the best families and deserve
the most cordial treatment from all
with whom they come in contact.
They are just out for a pleasure
trip but will not be backward about
singing or playing when an occa
sion presents itsself. I will write
Epyth Tozif.r Wkatherrkd.
Subscription contests are being
worked to a irazzle by various news
papers, in which young ladies are
induced to enter the contest with
the hope of getting a valuable prize
or making a desirable trip. The
editor of the Graphic has never tak
en much stock in these contests, for
they always bring sore disapoint
ment to a large number of the par
ticipants, even when the contest is
conducted on the square, which is
not always done, and we will hesi
tate a long time before we will ever
again ask any young lady to enter
such a contest. Newberg Graphic.

The failure of the Oregon Trust

fact that IJ. K. Lvtle, president of
the Pacific Railway & Navigation
Company, has no iuterests in the
United Railways. He was selected
some time ago for president, it be

the lines in the United Railways
scheme that his name would lend
considerable strength to the pro
Mr. Lytle decided at that time
that the United Bail ways would
strengthen the position of the P. R.

to the city over the iuterurban road
from Hillsboro that is projected by
the United Railways. He expect

schemes and aid in their construc

he did not take time to attend the
meetings of the directors of the Uni

United Railways, despite informa

weeks ago. W. L Beuharn, presi
dent of the company, whom Mr.
Lytic was to succeed, still retains
his office and it is expected be will
continue to do so, as Mr. Lytic does
not expect to assume that position
W. II. Moore, president of the
bank, has interests in the United
Railways and it was his friendship
for Mr. Lytle that induced the lat
ter to consider the proposition fav
orably. From the Oregnnlan.
The suspension of the Oregon
Trust & Savings bank in no way
affects the affairs 'of the United
Railways company adversely. The
bank was simply acting as trustee
holding the stock and bonds in es
crow, and they are in the -atne con
dition as before.
While the bank was the medium
of disbursing the funds used in con
struction, no large account with it
was kept any considerable length of
time. The bills as they accrue are
met by the syndicate, and as soon
as the funds are deposited they are
checked out. so that it happened

by the suspension.
Mr. Lee said that although it is
not usual for men to build a rail
road with their own money, the
United Railways' lines are being
constructed by money from the
pockets of the owners. They are
pushing the work as fast as good
construction work can be doue, and
have a large amount of rails on
hand. The work will be crowded
until the city lines are completed,
the overhead work is done and the
line to the Catholic cemetery is laid.
An electric locomotive for work on
Front street has been purchased and
arrangements tor cars are being
made. Mr. Lee added that if left
alone the syndicate would complete
the lines as originally planned.
C. H. McBride, one of the six
men comprising tbe united Rail

had suspended, and yesterday his
