More Money "Will Be Sent Today
Every One Xs Responding? Liber

"PORTLAND. Or., Sept. 14. Governor,
Austin, Texas Remitted you '$500 from
citizens of Portland and The Dalles, Or.,
by Welis-Fargo Express, for relief Gal
veston or other sufferers. As we are
too distant to know exact needs, kindly
dispose to best advantage. Will send
more tomorrow or Monday. .
"President Chamber of Commerce."
The above Is the first remittance from
the state to the residents of Texas suffer
ing from Hood and storm. It Is hoped
that an co.ua! sum at least may be sent
today. In view of the contributions of
other cities everywhere a less sum would
seem all too small. President Taylor hopes
to have much more, and asks that those
who intend giving try to have their con
tributions In by noon today. Of course,
the banks and other agents will receive
money for the 'relief fund later.
Much that was contributed yesterday
was not gathered In by the time the,$3M
was sent. It will all be counted by to
day noon, as a special effort will be made
to visit all the banks by then. Only The
Dalles has been heard from outside Port
land. There will doubtless be many con
tributions from the state at large as soon
as news of the catastrophe circulates and
time elapses for a return by mall. Al
ready some subscriptions have "been made
without the money accompanying
Neither Mayor Rowe, Archbishop Christie
nor President Taylor have time to call
upon the subscribers for these sums.
They can be paid easily Into some of the
banks or delivered to one of the three
mentioned with little difficulty. When the
-work was commenced there was no pur
pose to solicit money. Offerings were In

helplessness of the Galveston people
seemed sufficient to move any one to

President Taylor ?251. that had been re

FIGHT FOR FREIGHT RATES
Pinal Hearing: in Case of St. Lou I
- .Jobbers to Be "in November.
Vice-President Hahn, of the Pacific
Coast Jobbers' & Manufacturers' Asso
ciation, has received a letter from Secre
tary Smith, of the association, saying that
the final aeanng of the contest of the St.
Xiouis jobbers against the transcontinental
railroads vould prol'ably be held In "Wash
ington in November, after the election,
and the .leelsion, of the Interstate Com
merce Commission may be expected about
the first of next j'ar. All the testimony
Is in, and only the summing lip on the
part of .the railroads remains to be pre
sented. Mr.'Hahn'haB also received a tran
script of lie testimony before the com
mission, which maKes a typewritten book
of 2S76 pages, of about 400 words each.
It' Is recommended that he read this over
and be present at the final hearing before
the commission. Part of the testimony
was taken in Portland, but more was
taken in San Francisco.
The Pacific Coast jobbers appear in the
case as 'nterveners after the St. Louis
association had made application for more
advantasr 1 )ur. rates from the Southern
Pacific Company. It is not believed that
the petition of the St. Louis jobbers
can be granted, because their showing is
weak. They have not overborne or con
troverted the fact that they are contend
ing for vrnatural conditions. They wish
to deny to seaports the natural advant
age of thjlr positions, and ask the trans
continental railroads to help them In their
"We don't see how it can be possible
that the petition of the St Louis jobbers
in this matter will be granted," said Mr.
Hahn. "But if it should be granted and
rates be put in that would give the Job
bers and manufacturers of the Middle
West the advantage sought, then we
would hace to put Into effect -the means
of .protection we have. We would have
to bring cur freight from the Atlantic
Seaboard ty ship, and the Middle West
would yuffcr loss of our trade, and the
rauroaas -noulo lose the long haul."

CAMPAIGN GETTING WARM
FAIRBANKS ASfD TOWJfB TO SPEAK
Both Republicans and Populists Will
Be Addressed by Well-Known
With two prominent speakers promised
Portland soon, representing two great
political parties, interest in the Fall cam
paign begins to warm up. Charles A.
Towne, late "Vice-Presidential candidates
of the Populists, and Senator Fairbanks,
of Indiana, are both booked for next
Tuesday. An effort has been made by
tho Fusion state committee to have the
two speakers appear on the same plat
form in a debate of political Issues.
Chairman Sheridan suggested the plan-,
and wrote a formal offer to Chairman
Steel, explaining that in doing so Mr.
Towne's sanction had been obtained, but
the offer was not accepted. Chairman
Steel stated that Senator Fairbanks' it
inerary would not permit of the arrange
ment. "On yesterday morning we saw in The
Oregoniah that Senator Fairbanks would
speak in this olty on the same date and
at the same time."
While they will not jointly debate is
sues, both speakers will naturally pre
sent their respective sided of the fight.
Senator Fairbanks will sjleak in Cor
dray's Theater, at the usual hour. Local
Republicans are' preparing To give him a
great reception. Mr. Towne will not
speak at the Tabernacle, as at first ad
vertised. Owing to the -condition of the
building it has been decided by the Fu
sion committee to have him appear In
the Metropolitan Theater, at Third and
Yamhill. A committee is now arranging
other features of the meeting and plan
ning to give this well-known member of
the party such greeting as his station
Following the appearance here of Sen
ator Fairbanks, the Republicans will have
under way their part of the campaign.
Dates for speakers are being fixed 'rap
idly now. A meeting will be held In HUH
boro Saturday. September 22, to be ad
dressed ,by Hon. George H. Williams.
This veteran of the party, whose ad
dresses on any topic always draws a
crowd, is reported to haye devoted con
siderable study to the present issues.
Judge "Williams has not taken a very
aggressive position in politics of late, but
the questions now before. the voters ap
peal to him with such force that he can
not refrain from discussing them. His
speech will be looked forward to as the
exponent of .sound campaign .principles.
Great pressure is brought to bear' for
more than two addresses in the state by
Senatqr A. J. Beveridge, of Indiana.
Eastern Oregon and many other sections
are especially anxious to have this tal
ented young statesman appear there.
Senator, Beveridge will be In Portland at
7 P. M. October 2, and must leave tho
evening of the same day for California.
Under these circumstances, it was impos
sible to have him appear often or at any
place distant from the line of the South
ern Pacific. He, will take the West Side
train down the "Valley In tho morning and
speak at Dallas. From there he will be
driven across to Salem, and deliver, an
address in time to catch the south-bound
train that evening. This was all that
could be accomplished in the timo given.
Hon. BInger Hermann will speak at
Corvallls next Saturday evening. His. re
lation to. the Administration and associa
tions at Washington give whatever ho has
to say much Interest, and a large crowd
Is expected in Corvallls when he appears
there. The Republicans will formally
open the .campaign there with a royal're
ceptlon. A special will run from Albany
to carry people over desiring to hear the
About October 1 the schedule of the Fu
sion committee will tie made up. After
that date Bryan's cause will' have fre-"
quent exponents In Portland and Oregon.
TO FIGHT VEHICLE TAX.
Business Men and Corporations Will
The efforts of the City Council to in
crease the revenue.of Portland by impos
ing a special license tax on vehicles will
soon meet with well-organized and de
termined opposition. Over 200 business
men and corporations affected by its pro
visions have contributed a large sum of
money' and, engaged legal assistance to
carry it Into the courts. The list includes
the furniture dealers, wood dealerB, livery
stable men, meat markets and every class
using vehicles in the conduct of their
business. The sentiment against the tax
has been growing steadily, and for some
time the heads of different lines of busi
ness have been quietly organizing for the
purpose of resistance. When It became
known that the furniture men were tak
ing active steps In that direction, the.
other lines joined hands and acted in
concert with them. H. C. Breeden, Henry
Jonnlng and William Gadsby were' ap
pointed to apportion and collect the
amounts to be given by each business
house. Contributions have been freely
made, and they will have an ample sum
to fight the tax. The manner in which
this will be done is not given to the
public, but it is understood that they
have prepared their plans and will now

William .Qadsby, who has been acting
as secretary of the financial committee,
said yesterday: "We consider this tax
'on our vehicles the same as taxing our
help, We cannot carry on our business
without them. As we understand it, the
object o a license tax Is to abate a nui
sance or objectionable line of. business," or
for tho purpose of regulating its conduct
and pr6tecting its patrons. - For neither
of these reasons Is it necessary to tax

claim that they makehe town what 16
Is and establish the value of real estate.
Without' them there would-be no worth
to It, and Portland would be no more
than a. hamlet or a field; yet the blanket
ordinance . does not tax It. If -the -city
starts in to tax our wagons, and again
tax us 'for the privilege of doing busi
ness after we have already been taxed
for this privilege, we are paying not only
a double, but a triple, tax. To even up"
things", we will have either to raise the
price of .our goods or cut the wages
of our employes. If additional finances
are needed for the city, all should be
taxed alike. The special taxes Imposed
on my business by the blanket ordinance
alone will amount to $700 per year."
FALL CATCH IS LIGHT.
Unsatisfactory Finning: at Gray's
Harbor and Shoalvrater Bay.
P.' J. McGowan, who is running a sal
mon cahnery at Gray's Harbor and also
at Shoalwater Bay, is In Portland on his
return from those points. Fl3h are 'run
ning rather lighter over , there than he
likes, he said yesterday, and unless an
improvement manifests Itself shortly the
catch will not come up to tho average.
Fishermen are paid 3 cents a pound for
sllversides, and could do -very well at
these figures If the run was good. He
could not, tell from data at hand how
tho season would come out. Sllversides
are Inferior to either the chlnook or the
sockeye salmon, but the demand for tho
canned article is fair, a large proportion
of the consumers of canned salmon ap
parently not appreciating the difference.
Mr. McGowan thinks the Columbia River
cannerymen did very well-this year, al
though? they paid more for the raw prod
uct than ever before. "We 111 make
more money this year than we did' when
we used to get fish-so cheap," he said,
"and a great deal more cash was circu
lated among the fisheries and canneries
than in some years wjien the catch was
As to thp future of the s,almon industry
in the Columbia, he would make no proph
esy. "Propagation has not come up to my
expectation," he said, "although there is
no doubt about 'some of the marked fish
having returned from the ocean. Sal
mon spawn and fry have a host of en
emies, and it will take a great deal of
.propagation to compete with their rav
ages The trout which sportsmen delight
to angle for swallow millions of young
salmon, and I 'would be in favor of ex
terminating the trout -from streams upon
which hatcheries are maintained.
"The seals and the sea lions are also
largely responsible for a shortage In the
run of Columbia River salmon, and they
probably tlevour a number equal to the
entire' catch of the fisheries every year.
These salmon-eating (monsters appear In
the river 'from the bar to the Cascades,
and are. often seen feasting on the sal
mon tho fishermen consider as theirs.
Frequently,- while the seines are gather,
ing in the salmon, seals will appear and
devour many, making the best of the op
portunity while the fish are unable to
"Then, as is well known, the salmon Is
a cannibal, and will devour his own spe
cies by the hundred while the fish are
yet small. This trait in the chlnook can
not be guarded against, but the hatcheries
will have to-allow for such bad habits
and turn more fry loose on that ac
BIG ADVANCE SALE.
Iiongr I,lne o Buy Tickets for Neill
If one were to judge from the long line
of representative citizens who took their
turn in purchasing tickets for James
Neill's coming engagement at the Mar
quam Grand, beginning Monday evening,
that distinguished and favorite actor will
doubtless appreciate Portland and its peo
ple more than ever at the close of his
engagement next week. The line" began

FOUGHT SIXTEEN ROUNDS
THEN THOMPSON THREW UP THE
Game Contest WItli tho Australian
Welter-Welgrht JPred Ross Put
Out lu a Preliminary.
Bob Thompson threw up the sponge at
the close of the 16th round at the Ex
position building last evening, after one
of the gamest fights ever witnessed in
Portland. He was on the floor six times
in the 16th round, once taking a count of
nine' to rise in, and twice taking five.
Each time he went down the spectators
thought he would never get in position,
and the shouts for Tracey, the victor, alter
the close were copiously mingled with
the applause for the gamey negro.
The second preliminary proved a firy
set-to. Fred Ross, formerly of Denver,
but a resident of Portland for the past
four years, was given a terrible, knock
out blow In the second round or what was
billed a six-round go. To that point the
preliminary was fast and furious. Ross,
while shorter and not trained, fought
with his usual grit, rushing and meet
ing his more skilled opponent half way
at every turn. Henderson commenced
swinging for the Jaw and face from the
first. He appreciated his reach placed
Ross at a disadvantage, and did not fall
to use It. Ross rushed under Henderson's
guard wherever possible, but was landing
lightly and -receiving heavy jolts about
the face. 'About the middle of the second
round, Henderson caught him tvlth. a. left
near the neck, which sent Ross back
and caused him to lower hls guard. Like
lightning Henderson landed a long, swift
right swing on the point of Ross' jaw,
and it was all over. Ross stood stunned
a haif moment and dropped heavily to
the floor, his head bumping hard. It
was the hardest knock-out a Portland au
dience has witnessed for years. The vic
tim had to be supported from the ring
Tom Tracey, of San Francisco, and Bob
Thompson, of Los Angeles, the stars,
weighed in at 140 and 146. Thompson,
colored, although shorter, rushed, at the
start, crouching Iow and guarding well
his wind and heart. Tracey commenced
a series of vicious uppercuts to meet this,
that lasted till the close of the contest.
This style of fighting prevailed, and after
the -first three rounds, Thompson devoted
muoh of his time to self-protection, al
though ever on the alert to land, and
always willing to mix things. He seemed
unable to fight at close quarters. Often
when his quicker antagonist rushed him,
he ducked low, brought his hands into a
protective position and quietly received
heavy smashes on the kidneys or heavy
uppercuts for the wind and heart. Thomp
son's face was the worse for wear in te
fifth round. His eyes told of sharp blows
there, and both cheeks at the close were
In the fifth the colored man acted as
though he was tired, but came up in the
sixth sprightly. ,By that time it became
evident that it was Tracey's fight, as
Thompson did not seem to be able to land
with any force, although making- an oc

Notwithstanding this fact, Interest could
never lag. The colored man kept at his
work with surprising vigor, and seemed
able to block everything that had vital
force. Tracey's hard work tired him, and
seemed to account for his Inability to land
a knock-out or effective blow earlier than
tho 16th. In the 11th round Thompson
went to the floor after receiving a hard
blow on the face, but seemed to fall more
from being overbalanced, as he quickly
rose.- At the beginning of the 12th the
negro appeared weak but plucky. He re
ceived right and left on the Jaw and face
often, without countering or blocking.
There were frequent cries of "Foul"
when Tracey punched his opponent In the

Referee Grant decided they were both
fighting and Tracey was not violating the
agreement not to hit in the clinches or
break-aways. At tho commencement of
the 16th Thompson was purely on the de
fensive, and hung on whenever he could
clinch. The referee had warned him in
the 15th not to do so much grabbing. The

commanded admiration from the spec

Former Portlaader Tells of Green
wood and Colville.
R. R. Cunningham, a native of Port
land, who. has been spending the past
four years among the mines of the
Greenwood district, in British Columbia,
Is here visiting friends. He has become
interested in the quartz ledges of that
country and speaks In glowing terms of
Greenwood, he said yesterday. Is sit
uated some eight miles north of the
British line, and is the terminus of the
Columbia & Western 'Railroad, a branch
of the Canadian Pacific, which runs
westerly from Robson station. The pop
ulatlon ot the town lie put3 at SC0O, and
there are qulto a number of substantial
business structures and cosy homes. A
600-ton smelter Is now In operation, night
and day, and another of 500 tons capac
ity will be working by January 1, IDOL
There is a tremendous amount of low
grade ore within a radius of a few
miles, while some valuable copper de
posits are also being developed.
The country around Greenwood 13 being
brought to the front principally by
Americans, who form a majority of the
business men of the town, and the open
ing of tho north half of the Colville res
ervation to homestead entry will also
tend to swell Its population and business
traffic. The reservation is to be opened
on October 10, and already quite a num
ber of people are gathering at conve
nient points to be on hand for the grand
rush. The towns of ChesaW, Bolster and
Molsen have sprung up in the reserva
tion within the past few months, and
they will each become the center of an
Important mining, farming and grazing
country as soon as the Indian title to the
reserve has been extinguished, and the
settlements of tna wnlte race take the
place ofthe tepee.
Beaverton, 37 miles west of Rossland,
Mr. Cunningham said, has also become
an Important mining camp, heavy de
posits of high-grade ore having been dis
covered In the locality.
The climate of Greenwood he considers
very pleasant, particularly In the Sum
mer, when the temperature Is always
moderate. A good deal of snow falls m
the "Winter months, .and thl3 lies on the
ground until March, but periods of ex
treme cold are Infrequent and short, 33
degrees below zero being the lowest tem
perature thus far recorded.
Mr. Cunningham thinks the Greenwood
country Is a good place for a poor man,
willing to work, as wages are good and
tho cost of living not exorbitant. The
mines are of the permanent class, and
thousands of tons rt ore -are In slght-
enough to keep tho smelters running for
the next generation. Although yearning
for his native city, he- is very well
pleased to remain in Greenwood for some
years yet. He finds the laws there well
administered, though considerable job
bing and corruption is beginning to creep
In at the head of government, the offi
cials being willing to promise and con
cede everything while asking votss, but
forgetting their promises quickly after

Has Bear Meat to Sell.
"Walla "Walla Argus.
Last Saturday B. D. Doll, Uvinjr about
10 miles from the city on Bluo Creek,
killed a female bear and her two cubs.
The bear and her two cubs were first seen
by Mr. Doll's 10-year-old boy while ho
was driving tha cows to pasture. Tho
old bear made a start toward the boy
who ran to the house and told his father
what he had seen. Mr. Doll shouldered
his rifle and started on the warpath. He
found the bear and her oubs had climbed
a large pine- tree obCL were about SO feet
from the ground. He picked them off
one at a time with well-aimed shots from
his rifle. On Monday, the old bear, weigh
ing about 2S0 pounds, was brought to this
city and sold at a meat market.

Never before in the history of Presi
dential campaigns have the supporters
of a candidate been asked to believe that
the platform means the reverse of what
is says. The Democrats argue that Bryan
will not do anything to advance the cause
of silver, as he has promised to do. They
are also being convinced that he would
not retire the Army from tha Philip
pines as h.e has promised. Such an. anom
