HOOD RIVER, Or., Sept. P. (Special.)
It was tipped off here tonight that bids
are soon to be called for on the construc
tion work of the road to be built down
the north bank of the Columbia. A rail
road contractor gives the Information,
and statos further that he has every as
sttranco that the Northern Pacific people
are behind the move. The contractor
Holds inside Information, which he cannot
well divulge, but he says President Elliott
and other Northern Pacific officials will
be In Portland this coming week, whon
certain definite announcements will be
The siH-ofidtng of this news among in
terested persons here has naturally
aroused a great degree of excitement. It
was during the present week that survey
ing parties were put off the steamer Reg
ulator at points beteween Washougal and
Stevenson. Passongers aboard the steam
er state that the camping accoutrements
of the surveying part- bore the marks
of Northern Pacific stencils.
Merchants of Lyle last month cashed
Northern Pacific pay checks for a num
ber of surveyors, which to many Is more
assurance that the operations along the
north bank of the Columbia this Summer
have been under the direction of the
Northern Pacific Railroad.
Right of Way Agent Busy.
A. R. Upright, of Tacoma, the right-of-way
agent who has been operating at
White Salmon and Lylo during the past
two months, as much as said one time
that he was in the employ of the North
ern Pacific. The people along the line
of the proposed road do not want to
boHeve anything olse, unless It be the
Groat Northern. Possibly the two lines
are working together under the guidance
of Hill. Any Intimation that the onera-
tlons have been only a blind on the part
of Harrlman 1ms always sent a chill over
the community of Whlto Salmon, the
growing metropolis of Western Klickitat,
whose people are anxiously awaiting the
day when construction work on the north
bank route will really begin.
Mr. Upright was- here vestnrrinv.
having held a conference the other
day with some of the landowners at
White Salmon and Underwood who
are still holding out for a stiff, price
for rights-of-way. Mr. Upright con
tinued on to The Dalles.. That city Is
whore he makes his headquarter
The Dalles Is also the headquarters of
the Groat Southern, the road which
will be completed to Dufur this com
ing week. A few weeks ago the story
was passed around that the Great
Southern was a Hill enterprise.
Northern Pacific Earmarks.
An old railroad engineer as he
looked over the rolling stock of the
new road declared he could see the
earmarks of Northern Paolflc prop
erty. ThlB led many to believe that
Hill was laying plans to enter the
very heart of Harrlman's territory in
Oregon. When 'asked how he was to
get his freight from The Dalles into
Portland. President Helmrich replied
that he would see to that all right, and
It was hinted that a ferry would carry
the cars to a north-bank road yet to
The buying of terminal grounds by
the Northern Pacific in Portland Is
regarded as propitious, as is also the
rumor that the Columbia River North
ern and the Regulator line of steam
irs have been purchased by thlB same
railroad, a' report -which has cover
Mr. Upright has been -working: on
right-of-way matters since the middle
of May. He said yesterday that he
had everything cleared up, -with but
one or two exceptions, at White Sal
mon, and one piece of orchard land In
Clark County. Cash payments have
been made for right-of-way land and
Mr. Upright holds a bunch of options
on which he Is securing abstracts of
title. The proposed "road, Mr. Upright
says, will leave the Northern Pacific
at Kennewick and follow the Columbia
River to Vancouver.
CONFIRMED AT VANCOUVER
Every Indication Shows Plans of
VANCOUVER, "Wash., Sept. (Spe
cial.) The people of Vancouver have
again revived their lost hope of a rail
road up the north bank of the Columbia
River, and are becoming enthusiastic over
the matter, and besides they have fond
hopes for a bridge at this polnL
From several recont moves on the part
of railroad officials It Is evident that some
enterprise Is under way. Throe carloads
of horses reached this city oday, and It
Is reported that eight more will arrive
some time tonight They will be sent by
boat tomorrow up the river a distance of
about 27 miles to Cape Horn, whore it is
stated from reliable authority that work
will start Monday morning. All the rail
road officials here ate reticent about the
matter, and everything seems to be car
ried on "on the quiet." The recent pur
chase of the Sampson place, near Cape
Horn, and the purchase of the Kline prop
erty, at WasHougal, together with the
fact that a gasoline launch has been char
tered for the use of the survoyors. all are
evidence that work is under way. Ateo it
is stated that men are being employed
and sont to Cape Horn, where the work
is to be started.
The matter of a railway has been pond
ing for several years, and the time is sow
ripe for action. Besides the option on sev
eral parts of the right of way are about
to expire, and unless work Is begun at
once the company will lose Its right.
The chief engineer of the Northern Pa
cific is in this city, and offices Have been
established In the Packard building, and
It is stated they arc contracted for a
period of three years.
From the present indications there is
evidence of actual operations at the pres

was elevated to the dignity of a political
Issue by the Prohibition convention in
session today. The strongest plank in
the platform adopted denounced the
amazing shameful condition of drunken
ness and Immorality that was declared to
exist In the army by witnesses under

canteen was declared to be justified by

HQQ HOD MD
Greatest Concatenation Held
in History of Order at
OPEN EYES OF YOUNGSTERS
Two Hundred and Twenty New Mem
bers Are Taught the Mysteries
Imparted by the Great
Sncrcd BInck Cat.
The great sacrod. black cat has 220 play
ful new kittens. The record Has been
brokon, and last night the roof swarmed
with scampering dusky figures as the eld
cats opened the eyes of the youngsters
at tlie Armor. Hoo Hoo is swarming and
enthusiastic, and has taken possession of
the city. Portland is a healthy place for
the order, and the 14th annual meeting
now In session Is the largest ever Held in
the history of Hoo Hoo. Last night the
largest number of Initiates over taken
into th order at any one time were
given the degree of the playful kitten.
In April of this year, at Fort Worth, SO
new members were Initiated at one meet
ing, but Portland now has the palm, for
last night the class graduated at the
Armory numbered 22ft lumbermen and mon
engaged In the handling of lumber. Be
sides being the largest class, the concate
nation was held In the largest room in the
history of the order, there were more
members of the Supreme Nine in attend
ance than at any time before, there was
a' larger number of the lay members on
hand to see the fun, and there was more
enthusiasm over the meeting than Has
ever been sliown before. In every way, it
is the greatest success In the history of
Hod Hoo, and the Portland oomntltteos
that hare been working for the meeting
arc tired, but proud and glad.
Yesterday morning the meeting was
called to order at 9:09 o'clock in the Mar
quam Theater, and the visitors were wel
comed to the state and the city, but the
biggest and the most Important meeting
of the day, and perhaps of the session,
was the concatenation held 'during the
evening at the Armory. It was then that
the daw of 239 was initiated, Smd the
session on the roof followed.

THE MAKING OF A GREAT
The only newspaper in the Pacific Northwest having two leased wires is The Sunday 'Oregonian.
One of the wires brings the world's news hy way of Spokane, the other hy way of San Francisco.
Other wires also are naed to bring special news dispatches to The Oregonian from all parts of the
world and the United States and tho Pacific Coast.
The collection, transmission, editing and printing of this large quantity of news matter, its collo
cation and segregation and display, call for quick exercise of the keenest intelligence and this intelli
gence is possessed by The Oregonian writers and editors and printers.
The Oregonian has a large corps of local writers, who set forth the doings of Portland and its
vicinity interestingly and accurately and completely and without bias.
Besides, The Oregonian prints the writings of the best current authors in narrative, fiction, science,
philosophy, religion, politics and opinion.
The Sunday Oregonian represents the highest skill and art in newspaper production, and as a news
and literary journal has no superior. No newspaper on' the Pacific Coast covers the news and the
literary field more comprehensively and none on the Pacific Coast does this so completely. r
The Oregoniaij this morning has a circulation of more than 40,000 copies, a circulation far in the
lead of any competitor. . x
The Oregonian was the li vest aid most; progressive newspaper 50 years ago; is so today and will b
Jo iriT the future. s

PEACE AT TD
Military and Police Patrols at
Legations and News
ITO'S STATUE IS RESCUED
Publication of Peace Terms and An
nouncement That Diet Will Meet
Calm rublic Cajblnet Ex
pected to Resign.
TOKIO, Sept S.-(9 P. M0 (Delayed in
transmission.) A few crowds collected at
various points today and this evening and
made alight demonstrations against the
police stations, but there was neither
fighting nor disorder. General Sxtkuna,
who established his headquarters at the
Sar office and directed the military op
erations and policing of the city from
thvre, has withdrawn the guards from
the foreign legations, which are deemed
to be In no danger and without the ne
cessity ot strong protection. However,
sentries In small squads continue to watch
the legations and the military patrols
have been extended In order to com
pletely protect the city. j
No 3 lore Churches Attacked.
There have been no further demonstra
tions agnlnst churches or missions. It
was feared for a time that the crowds
might menace the larger foreign mission
ary establishments at Tsuklji and
Aoyama, but the principal establishments
have not been disturbed.
The suspension of street-car traffic at
sundown has made the city more quiet
than usual, and in several districts guards
have patrolled the deserted streets. The
police lines about the Kokumln office have
been drawn In around the building.
The situation In other cities Is being
keenly watched. Apparently the trouble
Is no sheading. There has been some
disorder at Chiba, Kobe and Kyoto
though it has not been serious. Anti
peace meetings which are being held In
some cities and towns are passing reso
lutions denouncing the settlement at
Portsmouth, but are not Interfered with
unless they result In breaches of the
Ito's Statne Recovered.
T ieeeration of the statuo of Marquis
It' nt Kobe is generally resented and
dp!ored. It is pronounced to have been
an act of irresponsible rowdies. It Is re
ported tonight that the statue was recov
ered and conveyed to a warship lying In
Better feeling followed the conferences
at Premier Katsura's house today, the
actual provisions of the treaty proving
slightly more satisfactory than had been
expected. This had a tendency to allay
resentment against the government, and
tho Premier's promise that there would
be a session of the Diet In October also
tends to Improve the situation.
There is a growing belief that physical
violence will speedily end, and that the
opponents of the government will use only
ordinary political methods.
It Is generally believed that the Katsura
Cabinet will retire when the Diet meets.
TALKING INSTEAD OF RIOTING
Tokio Settles Down to Political Agi
tation and Counting Injured.
TOKIO. Sept 9. (9:30 P. M.) It con
tinues to be quiet and public excitement
and apprehension Is subsiding. While
active political agitation continues, the
prospect of additional violence Is de
creasing. It is impossible to obtain accurate fig
ureaf the killed and injured during the
rioting. Many of the wounded were con
veyed to their homes, thus concealing
The Barristers Association Is gather
ing statistics of the killed and wounded
and it is probable It will report an ac
curate list later- Tho number of ar
rests Is withheld, but It Is estimated that
it will amount to many hundred.
UNDERCURRENT OF ANGER
Tokio Recovers From Disturbance,
but Still Condemns Treaty.
TOKIO, .Sept 9. (5:30 P. M.) General
Sakuma'a instructions . to the troops pre
serving order in the capital have pro
duced a favorable Impression. Since tlie
proclamation of martial law there has
been no act of violence necessitating the
use of arms. Order has apparently been
restored. The feeling of unrest has sub
sided considerably. Street-cars, which
were suspended last night will resume
thejr usual service this evening.
There Is every indication, however, of
an undercurrent of dissatisfaction verg
ing on indignation against the peace
terms among the educated.
CALLS TREATY HUMILIATING
Progressive Party Denounces Gov
ernment for That and Tokio Riots.
TOKIO, Sept. 9. The council ot the
Progressive party held a meeting today
and passed a resolution strongly con
demning the government for concluding
a peace that is termed humiliating and
one that resulted In an uprising in Tokio,
necessitating martial law. Count Okuma,
the leader of the party, was absent, owing
to Illness. The resolution reads as fol
lows: "The peace concluded by our plenipoten
tiaries la opposed to the purpose of the

Grlbbl. internal lnjhrles. serious.
Besides nine ot the factory force who
were seriously injured, scores of people
in tlie town of Falrchance, within half a
mile of the powder mills, were more or.
less painfully Injured.
Shod Rocks Whole Town.
The shock of the explosion was dis
tinctly felt In Connollsvllle. 20 miles away
buildings being rocked to their founda
tions. At Unlontown hundreds of panes
of glass were broken. In the town of.
Falrchance there Is scarcely a house that
did not suffer damage. Haystacks were
"toppled over In the fields, and livestock
were stunned. The rails of the B. & O.
and the West Pennsylvania Traction
Company were thrown from the roadbed
and traffic was delayed six hours. Train
No. 2, on the B. & O.. had a narrow
escape from annihilation. It had just
passed the Rand mills when the explo
sion occurred. The windows In tho
coaches were shattered and passengers
thrown In a panic. A street-car on tha
West Pennsylvania Railway had also
passed a few seconds before the explo
sion, and was far enough away to escape
damage, though It was derailed.
There were seven explosion In all.
Every one of the ten buildings was to
tally demolished. The debris that was
strewn over the ten acres of ground
where the plant wa3 located took fire soon
after the explosion and added its terrors
to the disaster. The first three explosions
were not as serious as the last four. Then
the packing-house, pressing-room and
magazine blew up, followed by two cars
of dynamite. '
Survivor's Thrilling Story.
Many of the survivors had thrilling ex
periences. Orville Swaney was working
In the glazing-room and had gone out
for a drink of water. Ke was Just out
side when the mixing mill went up. The
explosion threw him high In the air, but
he landed on his feet In a network of
fallen wires. "Dodging these, he sped
around the hill and was 50 feet away
when the second explosion threw him on
his face. He lay there stunned, and knew
nothing of the terrific blast that cama
when the storage magazine went up. A
half-hour after the explosion he wag
picked up ana carried to a place of safety.
All day at short Intervals' searchers
would bring In bits of bodies or clothing.
Some of these were carried In dishpans
or damaged powder cans.
A majority of tho dead men were single
although several of them leave families.
When the bodies wjere recovered tha
work of Identification was very difficult
Only Hole in Ground Left.
The hole where the magazine exploded
Is about 15 feet deep and 50 yards square.
Conservative estimates place the loss
to the Rand Company at several hundred
thousand dollars. There are also exten
sive losses to private houses and build
ings in ail surrounding towns. ,
A largo skylight In the Courthouse at
Unlontown was smashed, and there was
panic among the occupants. Damage wag
done at Connellsvllle, Mount Pleasant
and Scottdale. in hundreds of homes the
dishes fell from the cupboard shelves.
and pictures were thrown from the walls.
The report was so loud that it was heard
as far as Waynesburg and California, Pa.
Houses were wrecked completely, and.
windows and doors knocked out, and,
many structures torn from their founda
tions. Heard the Kegs Rolling. .
Ray H"evnr," who was In the keg shop
when .the explosion occurred, escaped. He
says he heard the loud report, and the
first thing he knew the kegs of powder
from the floor above began to roll down
and missiles flew in the air. Hevner and
two others ran out and escaped, but El
