Officers and Men Were Equally Over whelmed by Hospitality Accorded by the Americans. NEW YORK. Nov. 17—The British cruiser squadron under the command of Prince Louis of Battenberg, which had been the guest of this city since the morning of November 9. sailed to day for Gibraltar, the next station on its long cruise. The week which the squadron spent in this city was full of excitement and social events of more or less formality succeeded each other in rapid succession. Prince Louis, who Is certainly accustomed to the hardships of seafaring life, was almost overcome by the demands which this short season of social functions made upon him. Banquets, receptions, official and unofficial calls, balls and other affairs of a similar na ture every day for a whole week is more than even a well seasoned sea man and courtier can endure without serious discomfort. The members of his staff and the other officers of the British squadron were equally over whelmed by the hospitality of the Americans, but bore up well under the severe test. The men, alas, had their share of entertainment but their share was not quite so exacting. Everything passed off in the most satisfactory manner and it is to be hoped that the British visitors will take the most pleasant impressions of the comradeship of the officers and men of the United States navy and of the hospitality of the citizens of New York with thorn on their long cruise. The most cordial entente between the officers and men of the two fleets ex isted and many a lasting friendship was formed during that short week of fraternizing. The manner In which the officers and men on the American warships and the thousands of people who occupied every available foot of space along the river front, cheered the British ships, as they slowly steamed down the North River, amid the booming of , cannon firing the salutes, left no doubt as to the genuineness of the friendly feelings of the hosts for their depart ing guests. Led by the flagship Drake, bearing the admiral's ensign, the British cruiser squadron slowly steamed down the river, past the imposing line of the American battleships and cruisers, ex changing salutes with each one and doing particular honors to the Maine, the flagship of Admiral Evans. A flag salute was fired when the squadron reached Governor's Island and the I battery on the island responded with a national salute. Many hundreds of steamers, tugs, launches, yachts and other craft, nearly all gaily decorated, were scattered along the river, form ing an informal escort and brightening and enlivening the picturesque scene. Sirens and whistles mingled their shrill notes with the dull booming of the guns and the thundering cheers of the crowds on the shore and on the various boats. FULL WHEAT CARGO Great Activity Noted in Wheat Car rying on Upper Columbia. One of the few full cargoes of wheat taken from the portage road, on the upper Columbia river, to Port land arrived Tuesday on the steamer Joseph Kellogg. It comprised 2755 sacks, or 183 tons. The Joseph Kel logg is under charter to the Regula tor line and will be kept in the grain trade the best part of the winter. The other steamers operated by the same company also are taking wheat to Portland from points on the upper river, as is also the Charles R. Spencer. For the past week the Mountain Gem has averaged making one round trip daily between points near Ar lington and the portage road. After she gets all of the grain moved to the portage from the nearby points she will proceed further up stream. It will take her from two to four days to make the longer hauls. The little steamer Columbia is engaged also on the same route. Some of the steam'ers from Portland are fitted out with cargoes at The Dalles. WINTER IRRIGATION ON Hudson Bay and Freewater Farmers Are Busy. Winter irrigation is now in force in the Hudson Bay district. W. C. Gal lagher, C. Hogden and W. C. Shaw incorporated the Milton. Freewater & Hudson Bay irrigation system and have completed eight miles of ditch and nearly 15 miles of distributing laterals. The company expects to irrigate between 6000 and 7000 acres of land in the Freewater and Mil ton districts. The value of dry land before the laying out of the ditches was from $1.25 to $10 an acre, and where 10 bushels of wheat were raised 30 to 40 bushels can now be grown. Su gar beets, sweet potatoes and pea nuts can be successfully grown on this land also, and these crops will be extensively grown next year. The surplus water from the "Walla Walla and the Tumalum bay and Freewater districts are running over the fields of alfalfa, and from now until next June the water flood will continue to soak up the ground in that locality, and no summer irriga tion will be necessary. But Olson's B««taurant always l*aa» GRAIN MARKET HAS EASED UP ALL FOREIGN DEMANDS HAVE BEEN FULLY SUPPLIED FOR THE PRESENT. Several Vessels Have Finished Taking Cargoes at Tacoma and Are Waiting for Crews. After a period of uninterrupted ac-> tivity extending over more than a month, the market for wheat has eased up considerably during the week and there has not been much doing in the way of new business. Europe has ap parently satisfied current demands and the past few days have shown a lull in the cargo trade tnat has result ed in exporters exerting less energy in securing wheat and the easing off In a measure caused holders to withdraw offerings, though there is still enough wheat to be had to satisfy every re* quirement, says the West Coast Trade. The mills have considerable quantities of wheat on hand and are not much of a factor in present transactions. and, while California is still taking enormous quantities of stock, the bulk of current shipments is going forward to cover purchases made some time since. Exporters estimate that prac tically one-half of the Pacific north west crop has already been disposed of, though much still remains to be shipped that has passed out of farm ers' hands, and warehouses in the in terior are well filled with grain, some of them awaiting the arrival of cars in order to get stocks to tidewater. Receipts at Taeoma are being well maintained, however, the total for the week aggregating 562 cars of wheat, or approximately 620,000 bushels. Sev eral vessels have completed taking on cargoes, and are awaiting crews to get to sea, but there has been but one actual clearance, aggregating 110,000 bushels, the first of the season's ship ments from the Sound to South Afri ca. The exceptionally fine weather of the past few weeks has been improved by growers in the wheat belt who had failed to get their crop under cover before the rain, and several hundred thousand bushels, much of which was believed to have been irretrievably lost, have been threshed, realizing to the grower within about 10c of the market price. The week's developments in the general situation have served to con tinue the weak tone that was a feature at the date of last review. Worlu's shipments are being maintained at a high mark, and Russia continues to contribute liberal quantities, though previous strength was largely based upon the supposition that that coun try was likely to be practically elimin ated as an export factor.
