THE LITTLE LOCKSMITH WOULD
NOT HOLD UP HIS HANDS.
Archie Tlbbctt Grapples Willi Illgh-
Trnymen, Thus Savins Ills
Money and Watch.
A gritty fellow who would not hold up
his hand: got away from two highway
men at the corner of Grand avenue and
Belmont street, at 12 o'clock last night,
though he was considerably beaten up.
He Is Archie Tlbbetts, a locksmith, whore
stop is situated on Yamhill street. He
was on his way to his home on the East
Side, when he was met by two small men
In b'ack marks, tach of whom presented
a gun and commanded nlm to throw up
his hands. He was In no mood to com
ply, so both struck him with their revolv
ers at once, the barrel of one gun grazing
his left check and that of the other in
the mouth, knocking one of his teeth out.
Yet he did not give up, and after he was
knocked down, continued to grapple with
his assailants, and actually succeeded In
getting away from them. He ran to tho
saloon on the corner, near by. yelling.'
"Murder." and a nurmcr of men came
out. The would-be robbers stood on the
njrner until the men came toward them,
whon they ran off, one down Belmont
street, toward the river.
and tho other
northward along Grand avenue.
Tlbbetts wounds were bleeding profuse
ly when he entered the saloon, but he did
not seem to mind that much. His only re
gret was at not being armed. "Oh. If 1
only had a gun," ho exclaimed, as hs
glanced toward the spot where the strug
gle had taken place. He did not have
much money on his person, and his watch
was a cilver one. His brave resistance
was warmly commended on all sides, and
a. regret was expressed that he did not
have a gun of his own.
These two small robbers are evldenUy
the same chaps who have been operaUng
with unusual boldness for the past few
nights in Portland. Although the scene
of the attack was In a poorly lighted lo
cality, he obtained a good mental picture
of both of them. They were evidently
young men, and were dressed In dark busi
ness suits. The police were notified
shortly after the attempted hold-up, and
are vtorking on the case.
WORK OF THE DREDGE.
Discussed by Port of Portland Com.
At the meeUng of the Port of Portland
Commission yesterday, Ellla G. Hughes
called attention to the desirability of se
curing a reduction of Interest on the
amount the commission were owing on an
overdraft. They have been paying 8 per
cent, and It was thought this could be re
duced to E per cent. President Wilcox
promised to look Into the matter and see
If this reduction could not be secured, but
explained that an overdraft; which was
sometlmea Increased and sometimes re
duS2 wa3 not llke borrowing a certain
Etl.bl or a stated time. He thought, how
evr, that the reduction could be secured.
Taxes would soon begin to come In, and
there ought to be money to pay what they
owed In about 90 days.
Mr. Wilcox called attenUon to the fact
that a balance was carried on the books
as due from the state of 12339 50. It was
explained that this money was lost in the
Portland Savings Bank failure, and tho
matter had never been settled on tho
books. It was considered undesirable that
this should be carried over Indefinitely,
and the executive committee will take
steps to have It settled in some way.
The execuUve committee, after a brief
discussion In regard to the machinery of
-the old tender Louise Vanghn sUll remain
ing on hand, was authorized to dispose
of it to the best advantage.
The committee was also authorized to
dispose of a lot of worn-out rubber
'sleeves' used In connection with the
dredge, which have accumulated, and
which will bring something as old rubber.
Balfour. Guthrie & Co. submitted a prop
osition offering to pay the cost of dredg
ing within 150 feet of their dock. It was
decided that the commission was unable
to do this work at present, and it was
advisable that private parties should be
employed to do the work.
The matter of a "grease extractor"
which had been placed on the dredge "on
trial" came up once more. The extractor
has been condemned, and the commission
has a bill against the owner of $71 50 for
work done on it by request, and It was
ordered that the owner take It away and
pay the bill. If he docs not do this the
commission will have tho extractor for
the $71 SO. Mr. Brown contemplates buy
ing It, to be used on his ranch as a churn,
and In the winter for making potato
The question of what is best to be dona
with the old city dredge came up for dis
cussion. It was suggested that It be sold
and a clam-shell dredge procured In its
place, as endless-chain dredges are aaid
to be out of date. It was thought that
some one might buy the dredge and the
scows which belong to It and fit them up
to do dredging within the SO-foot line In
front of wharves. It was decided to lay
the matter over for the present, as Presi
dent Wilcox said the commission had na
Immediate need for a clam-shell dredge,
and were not in a condition financially to
President Wilcox stated that the dredge
had completed a channel on the west
aide of the harbor up to within 50 feet of
tho wharves sufficient for all present re-

which, when completed, would enable
ships to be moved around the harbor with
out any inconvenience.
Mr. Williams, who Is now a. member ol
the executive committee, expressed a de
sire to be taken off the auditing commit
tee, as he did not wish to have the ap
pearance of auditing his own dolnga The
matter was laid over until it could be

Is regarded as very encouraging. The o'd

will have facilities for handling four or
five times the amount of fruit this year
they did in former years. The new can
nery plant on East Yamhill street, be
tween East Eighth and East Ninth streets,
will occupy 100x200. whereas the old plant
on East Yamhill took up but little more
than 100x50 feet. New and Improved ma

PRIZE FOR ORATORY.
Illarli School Alumni Aanoclatlon 'Will
Give a Medal.
A special meeting of the Portland High
School Alumni Association was held !ast
iiight. at which President H. V. Adlx pre
sided. The meeting was called for the pur
pose of presenting prizes to the High
School students In oratorical contests.
Fifty members were present, and took an
active part In the proceedings.
Jay H. Upton, who was at the head of
the petition for the special meeting, stated
that the To-Logeton Debating Society, at
the High School, has been meeting with
flattering success In Its contests with the
different schools and universities, in both
Oregon and Washington, and has reflected
much honor on the school. Therefore, as
a stimulus for the continuation ot the good
work, he proposed that the alumni give a
gold medal annually to the winner of an
oratorical contest to take place on the
fourth Friday In May of each year. The
association readily agreed to this, and
voted that the medal shall cost from $19
to 5. according to the disposition of the
committee, and that the contest be open
to all boys and girls of the High School.
The question of presenting medals for
field sports was brought up at the meet
ing, but It was decided to lay It over until
the regular eeml-annual meeting, which
occurs next month. Announcement was
made that ttte East Side members will
give a reception this month, to attend
which no alumus of the High School need
have an invitation.

INJURES THIS SECTION.
Grovrtnjr Ilellef That Withdrawal ot
Colonist Ilatea Was a Mlntake.
The withdrawal of cheap colonist rates
to the Pacific Northwest has had the
effect of delaing and diverting Immigra
tion to this section. It was a matter of
some difficulty for the Northern lines to
the representatives of these lines at St.
Paul are extremely outspoken on this
point. It wa? largely the matter of low
transportation offered, they declare, that
served as an Inducement- The movement
was very slow, to begin with, and had
just gotten under headway when the ukase
went forth ordering a wthdrawal. The
tide of Immigration for a long time had
been toward Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado
and the Southwest, but this had partially
been overcome. As a consequence of tho
abrogation of Pacific Northwest cheap col
onist rates, the St. Paul railroad men
state that the Immigrant travel in ttiia
direction Is rapidly dwindling to almost
nothing. As a consequence roads operat
ing In South Dakota. Nebraska and Iowa
are already advancing the argument that
settlers may move into those states at half
the cost Incurred In going further Into the
Northwest. The higher price of lands In
those states they appear to overlook in
their calculationsi. A prominent St. Paul
"It Is a short-sighted policy, and whilo
it may result In gaining a few more dollars
for the roads. It will also result in th
los of thousands of dollars In next year's
traffic I know It Is deslrab'e to maintain
rates, but I believe tho Northern Hnej
have catered too much to the Eastern
roads, who have no Interest In the settle
ment of the Northwest."
Even traffic officials of two of the North
ern lines recently admitted that In their
' opinion a mistake had been made In In
creasing rates at this particular time, as
