BUSINESS MEN SAY PROPOSED
ROUTE WOULD COST MORE
PEOPLE MUST DECIDE SAKS HAWLEY
Paper Mill Head Favora Construction
Of Open Ditch 1,000 Employee
In Big Planta May
Several business men whose prop
erty will be damaged by the proposed
East Side canal and locks at the falls
of the Willamette are preparing to
file a protest agalnat tbe construction
of the big ditch along tbe route sug
gested to the authorities at Wash
ington. It la asserted that tbe con
struction of the canal will require
more than $2,000,000 for condemna
tion awarda alone, and that It will be
almost an Impossibility to raise the
necessary money. The atate baa
made an appropriation of $300,000 and
the Government will give a similar
amount Tbla money la to be used
In the actual construction of tbe
canal, and. It Is estimated, that $154,
000 more will be required for this
work. The plans for tbe canal were
made by E. Buralem Thomson, -Assistant
United Statea Engineer under
Major Mclndoe, of the Statea Engin
W. P. Hawley. president of the
Ilawley Pulp ft Paper Company, the
plant of wblch will Buffer the most
through the construction of the canal,
declares that the building of the canal
would mean the company would quit
business In this city.
Hwly . Wants Open Canal
"As tbe route for tbe canal and
locka has been aurveyed," Bald Mr.
Hawley, "our mills will be ao
cut up aa to virtually amount to an
nihilation. Personally I am Indiffer
ent aa to what a done, and It Is up
to the people to decide whether they
want the mill or the canal. I favor
an open canal at Oregon City, and I
am perfectly willing to abide by the
will of the people.". - '
Mr. Hawley thinks that, under the
circumstances the present locks and
canal on the weet aid of tbe-Ttvar,
should be purchased and enlarged. He
aaya that the route proposed for thla
aide of tbe river would cut tbe city
off from the falls, and destroy the
The canal, aa proposed, begins at
the foot of Fourth street in Oregon
City and extends in a southeasterly
direction for a distance of 900 feet,
having a. width of 125 feet. The course
of the 125 feet cuta into several build
ings of tbe Oregon City Manufactur
ing Company'a plant Tbe same ap
plies to the Crown Columbia Pulp ft
Paper Company'a plant, where about
$100,000 worth of machinery for the
manufacture of pulp haa been ' in
stalled. Expense Would Ba Heavy.
Along the route of the proposed
canal there la In operation $200,000
worth of machinery. It la contended
that if tbe government condemns this
property for a right of way compell
ing these business concerna to seek
other quarters, the expense will run
beyond the $2,000,000 mark.
There ia little douot tnat the peo
ple of Oregon City would rather loBe
the canal than the big manufacturing
planta. " However, It is contended by
many of tbe leading men here that
the building of the canal on the East
Side will not necessitate tbe mills
closing. .In fact aome even go so far
aa to say the water power will not be
affected and that the Hawley Pulp ft
Paper Company and tbe East Side
pulp plant of the Crown Columbia
Pulp ft Paper Company will be the
only onea put to great Inconvenience.
Mr. Hawley say a the plan proposed
would bo interfere with his business
that ha would not think of continu
ing It here. About 1,000 persona are
employed by the mills that will be

until next Friday and tbe representa
tives of tbe shop crafts who were
present at the conference yeaterday
with Vice-President. Kxuttschnitt. of
the Harrlman lines express the hope
that a strike will be averted.
A meeting of the advisory board of
the Federated Shop Employe of the
Harrlman lines has been called to
convene in San Francisco Friday. The
board comprises 35 members, repre
senting the shop employes of all the
Important planta of the Harrlman
Statement 'Is Issued. ..
TTnHI tha arrfwxl nf th members
of this board, the International preai-
denta or tbe rive anop craiia wno are

l nai memafcioiiwi preaiunuM wi
five shop crarta issued a ronnai iuiw
ment tonight outlining the position
taken by the federation in anawer to
that ot the railroad's position issued
by Mr. Kruttscbnltt some days ago.
The atatement takes up, one at a
time, the nine demands presented to
Mr. Kruttscbnltt and also deals with
Ma attltudn toward them. It main
tains that the Federation plan now
worka on 14 systems aa mucn unoer
Government control and as much re
sponsible to tbe public aa the South
No Friction on Roads.
"We have federated crafts on 14
different railroads at the preaent time
and find no friction whatever with
the management of these various rail
roads." It says. "We speak specially
of the Southern Railroad and Its
allied lines, known aa the Flnley
group." Reverting later to thla point.
"The manager of the Harrlman
lines has laid great stress upon his
duties to the government and to the
public, and would lead one to believe
that the federation Is a handicap to
officials in fulfilling these duties.
"We have heard no complaint of
thla sort from the railroads that have
done business with the federation for
the laat three or tour years. The Gov
ernment haa not Interferred with any
of them. Their workings have been
so harmonious that they have report
ed to us that the savings to the com
panies through splendid co-operation
of the men has been marvelous."
Of Mr. Kruttschnltt s contention
that under the federation plan, tro
uble with one craft means trouble
with all, the International presidents,
point out that the federation commit
tee first seeks to settle any such dif
ficulty, but that In no event could a
Btrlke be called except by presidents
of. the Individual unions.
