THE -MOKNING" OKEGONIAN,1 WEDNEDA. SEPTEMBER -19,; 1900;
SHIPOWNERS IN, IT
Have Taken Steps to Correct
FIRST ORGANIZED RESISTANCE MERE
Mnnteraof Vessels Jfat to Control
Shipping of Sailors, the First
-Move Toward Reform.
"1 tae exception to the .statement that
tho law of supply and demand controls
the business of supplying1 sailors to
ships,' said W. J. Burns, resident partner
of Balfour, Guthrie & Co., yesterday to an
Oregonian reporter. 'The law of the land
Is openly defied and the demand for sall
ow Is illegitimately stimulated by the
practice of enticing: them to desert As
to that 155 -arrangement, although it was
accepted by the agents here under com
pulsion, as being the only alternative at
tha time, it was never agreed to by the
shipowners, who are the real parties "In
Interest, and on the face of It It was an
Imposition. Why is not $10 per man, the
legal fee, and the month's advance enough
for bousing a sailor on land for a short
time? There Is no reason in the world
why it should cost $100 and more per man,
as at present exacted. Our feeling In this
matter is that there should be no com
promise whatever; that the business
.should be brought down to Its proper
"'This is not now our fight, nor the
fight of any Individual or Arm of ship
owners or agents. The Shipowners' Asso
ciation pf Liverpool, in connection with
the associations of the Clyde and Lon
don, is behind us In the present move
ment. "We have come to represent them
as well as most of the Portland exporters
in this matter. The case is now between
the English shipowners and tbe Portland
sailor boarding-chouse people. It Is un
necessary to say that tbe present demands
will not be acceded to."
A Stp to Correct the Tronble.
Alfred Tucker, of Meyer, "Wilson & Co.,
said he had opposed the demands of the
sailor boarding-house people so many
times that he preferred not to take promi
nence in the present agitation. "Balfour,
Guthrie & Co. are to a large extent rep
resenting all the exporters of Portland,"
said he. "The English Shipowners' Asso
ciations have given them instructions as
to the course to be pursued in the present
case, and as it is essentially a shipown
ers' fight, that leaves Balfour, Guthrie &
Co. to take the lead in the matter. But
I may say that I am wholly in sympathy
with them, and Indorse their action.
"By way of explanation, however, I will
say that tho subject never before came
xip as It is now. English shipowners never
before combined to correct abuses at the
port of Portland. Movements of this na
ture have heretofore been supported en
tirely by the ship at the time in difficulty.
This being the case, it was an expensive
matter to the ship, and excessive demands
were frequently paid because it was
cheaper to pay the price for sailors than
to war with the boarding-house masters.
And the sailor boarding-house keepers
have counted on this in pushing their busi
ness; It must in fairness be admitted that
masters of ships have Been greatly to
blame in this matter. They and the sailor
boarding-bouse keepers together are re
sponsiblo for the present condition of af
fairs. And the shipowners, who gave into
the hands of the vessel captains the mat
ter of shipping crews, must take a part
of the responsibility also. Now the ship
owners are taking this power out of the
hands of the captains and giving the
agents at the port the authority to engage
the crew. Captains of most of the ships
here and on the -way here already have in
structions 'to confer with the agents In
Portland with reference to the shipping of
crews, and to be governed by the advice
of the agents. This will put quite an
other phase on the question of seamen's
"In cases where Portland houses were
tho agents of the owners of the ships
it has always been the custom for the
agents to see to the shipping of crews.
But where the- Portland houses were
merely- consignees, they had no right
whatever to interfere or have anything to
do with the cre-ws of the ships. Captains
frequently consulted the consignees, es
pecially when they got into trouble about
their crews, but the captains were after
all In control of the shipping of their
crews and :ould do as they pleased in the
matter. The basis for a considerable
abuse lies. here. The change now made,
by which the captains are relieved of
power to ship crews as they please, is an
Important step toward correction of the
evil that now causes complaint. It is
probable that Parliament at its next
meeting will pass a law imposing a fine
on the captain who shall .not tako back
to England, the crew shipped there, ex
cept for bona fide desertions or other un
avoidable losses. It will be made his
duty to swear out warrants and make-
search for men Tvho leave the ship, and
Consuls will be required to take descrip
tions of men shipped, and heavy punish
ment will bo provided for men who de
sert one ship and ship -Deck -on another.
To destroy the motive for desertion, or
the power to profit from it. come, pretty
near curing the trouble. Enforcement of
our own laws will do fne rest, and it
will be easier to enforce them then."
, Law Was Once Enforced.
British Consul Laldjaw last nlgnt took
occasion to give new publicity to the fact
that a register is kept at the Consulate
for Beamen in search of employment and
inviting such to register their names and
addresses free of charge. His n6tice also
tells men that they do not require the
Intervention of anybody In securing em
ployment "This is not new," said Mr. Laidlaw,
"but the present agitation seems to make
the announcement opportune. We hope
many will register at the Consulate.
Numbers have in the past.
"For a year or more after the passage
or the Oregon statute that is now in
effect sailor boardlnghouse abuses cut
small figure in Portland. The Harbor
master did his duty and prevented to a
groat extent the enticing of sailors from
their ships. Hundreds of men were then
-shipped from the British Consulate free'
of expense So unprofitable did the sailor
boaTdJnghotfse business become in Port
land that it nearly disappeared here,
being transferred to Astoria, where it
was. of course, much hampered. But
with lax enforcement of the law in Port
land the abuse returned and it has flour
ished in defiance of statutes for a long
time. We hope to have tho end of it
"Mayor Loolilnjr Into the Matter.
Mayor Howe, when asked about the
matter, said he had the subject under
consideration with the City Attorney, who
was to give him a -written opinion as to
the powers and duties of the Harbor
master today or tomorrow.
"The question appears to be as to
.Whether the Harbormaster has the au
thority to make arrest on the complaint
of others, or can only arrest for offenses
committed under his.tfwn eyes," said the
Mayor. "If he can act only upon his own
personal lcnowleflge of offenses, and not
upon the complaint of others, he -cannot
do much, for it Is easy to break the law
out of the sight of an officer whqsa
dutj' It is to enforce It. If we find that
the Harbormaster has no authority to
correct the evil complained of. we have
no use for the office, and -will save the
$100 per month which it now costs us.
If he has the authority, and does not 1
use It, we have no use for him, either.
These are the points we are now exam
"Who Pays tbe Dcmarnte?
"Some people have the idea," said Mr.
Iatta, of Balfour, Guthrie & Co.. "that
the owners of the Orealla and Genista,
now at the mouth of the river, and un
able to proceed to sea for want of crews,
are financial losers by the delay, and
others that Balfour, Guthrie & Co., the
'charterers of the two vessels, are paying
them demurrage. Such is not tho case.
"Tho owners are being paid demurrage b'y
tho Liverpool Shipowners' Association, In
conjunction with 'those of tho Clyde and
London; which have Jointly taken up this
flghtr against, the Portland crimps, and
which hare cabled out Instructions that
no vessels In which they are interested
(and this means practically everything
under the British flag) shall pay; "blood
money.' Meanwhile the City of Portland
and State of Oregon are being well ad
'vertlsed In anything but an enviable light
all over 'the shipping world, and the soon
er our citizens and authorities realise
this, the better it will.be for all. To jut
it in a few words, this present condition
is interpreted .by the British shipowner
as meaning that the power of a few
crimps is greater than the law and the
authorities behind the law In the City
of Portland and State of Orerron."
MAKES FULLER STATEBIENT.
Mr. Woods' PoHitlOA on the Question
of Sailor Abuses.
PORTLAND, Sept. 18. (To. the Editors
There is a report of a conversation with
me on the subject of the sailor boarding
house trouble which Is in the -main a
fairly accurate version of what t said,
but as the whole question is exciting
public interest and may come before tne
courts with my firm opposed to the boarding-house
men, perhaps Hd better state
precisely my view, and what I tried -to
say. First, there 'never was .any "con
tract" between exporters" and Sullivan
and Grant. There- was an understanding
arrived at that Sullivan and Grant were
never to charge a greater sum all told
than $55 per man, and- were to reduce
this if circumstances warranted. 'The ex
porters and ship agents here acquiesced
in it and were to recommend owners and
masters to deal with Sullivan and Grant.
Sullivan and Grant "kept their side ofthe
agreement The agents kept their side
of the agreement No one broke It But
some owners and masters refused to fol
low the recommendation of their agents;
dealt elsewhere for men at lower' rates,
I suppose. The agreement became use
less, and Sullivan and Grant took In the
opposition firm and put prices up to about
double the flat rate.
The harboring and enticement of desert
ers I npt only, did not approve of, but
expressly reprobated and now condemn,
as any man must who regards the wel
fare of the port the rights of ship
owners or the dignity of the law. But
the law was a dead letter; ship after ship
appealed to the public, and, as I am
told, to the Shipowners' Association, to
make her cause their own, and nothing
I endeavored to reach an agreement on
this, the root of the whole evil, but Sulli
van and Grant said they would promise
nothing they did not intend to fulfill, and
they could not conduct their business
without the sailors they got from one
ship, to supply another, and they ex
pressly refused to promise not to en
I always have been and am utterly op
posed to these methods of these men, and
to their present position, and they know
it but I don't care who they are they
are entitled to the truth from me, and I
will siy they never lied to me or brbko
faith with me.
Now, as to the present conditions: Put
ting aside the unnatural demand forced
by enticed desertion and the illegal sup
ply procured by the same act and look
ing at the subject as a labor question
simply, I do believe the wages of sailors
and the expense to the ship of "getting
sailors Is beyond the regulation of law.
I believe ft is a question of supply and
demand. I do believe, owing to the na
ture of sailors, their weaknesses and
their helplessness, .they 'will be dealt In
somewhat as chattels by the men who
furnish them in advance with board,
lodging and a spree, if necessary, while
they are,, waiting for a ship:. I do be
lieve" the law which strikes at desertions
has been a dead letter, openly violated
time and again. But I do not believe a
law to suppress desertlones and physical
oppression of seamen is useless. If en
forced as now for the first time seems
probable, there is no reason why the vio
lations of shipowners' rights, of which
enticed desertions and harboring deserters
is the chief, cannot be as well regulated
here as In any other part of the world.
My own Idea Is the whole subject should
be dealt with by act of Congress, and
apply to foreign as well as domestic ves
sels. C. E. S. WOOD.
CAPTAINS ASSIST DESERTIONS.
Tap Root of the Tree That Bears
Such Baleful Fruit.
PORTLAND, Sept 18. iTo the Editor.)
The charge made by Jack -Grant of the
sailor boarding-house firm, that shipmas
ters sometimes are more than willing to
have their men desert, has a foundation
of fsct In 1SS3 I came from the port of
Pisagua, Peru, to San Francisco, on tho
old Howard D. Troop. On the voyage 1
talked many times With the men about
these abuses, and I found that the ma
jority expected to go regularly through
the boarding-house mill. One man told me
that he had been to the port of San
Francisco 15 times, and that he had been
"shanghaied" every time. I asked him if
he intended to let them get, away with
him again, aijd his. reply was:
"I don't see how I can help it"
I then talked with the captain, and
asked why he permitted such outrages.
"W6 can't help it If we fight the
boarding-house keepers we can't get a
crew when we want to sail."
I then asked:
"Why don't you shipmasters combine
and keep the runners off your ships, and
refuse to recognize the boarding-house
keepers?" His answer revealed the true
inwardness of the whole thing. He said:
"It Isn't for our Interest to do so. If
my men desert they leavo their wages
with the ship. We have now been out
nine months, and all they have had Is
what they got out of the slop (clothing
chest). I am here for a cargo and may
have to lie in port three on-four months.
If the men remaip with the ship, I will
have to pay them wages. If they desert
they leave what is due, and when I am
ready to 'sail I can ship a new crew."
Shortly after casting anchor the cap
tain and first mate went -ashore; but
before they left the boardjng-housc run
ners were among the meh-wlth bottles
of whisky, and by night only about a
half dozen of the crew of 22 men, re
mained. The vessel remained In that port
three months, so It will be readily seen
that the captain-made enough to pay the
"blood money" demanded.
For the honor of the calling it Is to be
hoped that there are few shipmasters
like the one referred to, but there are
enough to give color to Grant's charge,
.and I believe that this Is really tho tap
root of the tree that bears such baleful
fruit ROBERT M'LEAN,
Pastor Third Presbyterian Church.

Stock Exchange, of which he conducted
the opening call, just four years ago that
Tho exchange haa had brokors come

have changed, but the policy of the ex

IIOSEBURG STREET FAIR.
Second Day Favored by Good "Weath
er and Increased Attendance.
ROSEBURG, Or., Sept. 18. The second
day of the street fair was favored by a
continuance of the good weather and a
far larger crowd than yesterday. The en
tire day was given over to music and
sports. This afternoon, the hose race be
tween Roseburg and Eugene for a purse
of $200 was won by the latter; time, 50 2-5
seconds; Roseburg's time, 52 seconds. Tho
fruit, vegetable and poultry exhibits are
very fine. The fair ends tomorrow night
with a carnival ball. So far, it is con
ceded to be the most successful fair of
any kind ever held In. Roseburg.
LOGGERS ARE ORGANIZED.
Will Unite to Keep Prices From
Tho Columbia River Loggers Associa
tion now meets in Portland on the laBt
Saturday of each month, and the mem
bers say that they represent SO per cent
of those engaged In that Industry. The
organization expects to Include all those
who are still outside, as the members
'are working constantly with that end in
A prominent member of the association
said yesterday that the object was not
to form a trust and raise the price of
logs, but to regulate tho 'log output and
guard against a glut and consequent
slump In values. ""Wo axe getting on
very woll along these lines," he said,
'"and the figures of August bear us out
In the wisdom of organization. The log
output' of "the ""Columbia "River and trib
utaries for .tho. month was 28,000,000 feet,
'while the consumption by the., various
mills In 'the same period was 34,000,000.
'Sawmill, men have beffwuscallng logs-
down a good deal of late, and this cuts
deeper Into our margin of profits than we
can, afford. None of the loggers are
making any money now, as the 'cost of
labor has gone up out of all proportion
to the advance in the price of logs. This
condition kind o makes me long for
Cleveland times again, and I have halt
a- notion to vote for Bryan, because if
he is elected we can get all the men we
want at our own prices, while the price
of logs will hardly go much lower than
at presetit $4 50 to' $6-per 1000 feet.
"The Loggers Association expects to
shut down several of Its" camps when
Winter 'weather sets in, as the woods
will get muddy and uncomfortable, any
way, and .we can thus Insure against
overcrowding 'the market.
A proposition has been mooted with
in the organization to start a sawmill
of our own at some point where ship and
rail can meet conveniently, and the river
front at St. Johns has found favor. Wo
have just as good business men among
the loggers as there are among any
other class, and in times of brisk de
mand for lumber we could run our mill
to its full capacity, while In periods of
depression -we could shut down. This
project is likely to take definite shape
at our next monthly meeting."
WAS HERE IN EARLY DAYS.
Judge Morrow "Roughed It" In Pnaa
lasr Tarongh Oregon. "
United States Circuit "Judge Morrow,
who came here from Seattle with United
States Circuit Judge Gilbert to 'hold a
term of the United States Circuit Court
of Appeals, will remain here until Thurs
day, when he and Judge Gilbert will
leave for San Francisco. Judge Morrow
is no stranger to Portland, having seen
It first In 1862. and having passed through
hero a number of times since. 'He has
also mined for gold in Oregon, and once
owned and conducted a pack train in this
state. He came to California In 1850, when
he was 16 years old. During the excite
ment In 1861-62 on account of the rich
.diggings discovered at Florence, Idaho,
he was one of a party of about 60 who
started with a complete outfit horses,
pack animals, etc. for the Florence
They came through from California into
Southeastern Oregon, and were the dis
coverers of the Canyon City mining dis
trict, on John Day River, but at that
time they did not know what district
they were in. Judge Morrow saw the first
pan of "dirt" washed out in that section,
and after the party had prospected a
whllo there they moved on over Into the
Powder River country, where there were
a number of mining camps. After a while
the greater number of the party pro
ceeded to the Florence diggings, as at
first Intended, but Judge Morrow and
some others decided to go back to the
diggings they had discovered on the John
Day, and they mined there all Summer,
with good success. When Winter was
coming on they began to think of get
ting away, as the Indians told them that
the Winters were very hard there. The
Indians were not very friendly, and de
sired to get them away. At this time
Judge Morrow embraced an opportunity
to trade two claims ho owned for a pack
train, and at the age of 19 he navigated
this train through a region of unsym
pathetic, if not absolutely unfriendly, In
dians to The Dalles, where he sold the
whole outfit and came to Portland, then
a small place, but a thriving business
center. Judge Morrow will, during his
stay here, take a run up to The Dalles,
which town he has not visited since he
sold his pack train there In December,
PORTLAND DAY AT SALEM.
Biff Attractions, Very Low Rates and
Special Train aj 6 P. M.
There promises to be a large attendance
of Portlanders at the State Fair tomorrow
and General Freight and Passenger
Agent Markham, of the Southern Pa
cific, states that his company is arrang
ing to handle a big crowd from Port
land that day.
The Chamber of Commerce, informally,
and the Board of Trade, formally, have
both accepted the- Invitation of the Salem
Chamber of Commerce to attend,, and the
very low rate of $1 60 for the round trip
which had been quoted, In connection with
special train service for the return from
Salem, train leaving Salem at 6 P. M.,
Is certain to attract numerous others.
The fair Is well worth visiting. Salem
will extend a hearty welcome to her Port
land friends. There will be a special race
programme and opportunity will be given
tho visitors to Inspect the finest stock
exhibit which has ever been given on the
Pacific Coast, together with very fine
President Taylor, of the Chamber of
Commerce, said he believed it a good
thing for all concerned to cultivate closer
relations between Portland and the other
towns and districts of the state and that
all members who could do so ought to go
to Pendleton or Salem or both In en
couragement of a neighborly Interest if
for no other reason. He will go to Salem
Need "Hot Carry Credentials.
FOREST GROVE. Or., Sept 15. (To the.
Editor.) Has a Deputy Game Warden le
gally the right, should he discover a per
son killing Mongolian pheasants out of
season, to arrest him and command him to
go with him as his prisoner, provided the
violator of the law demands of the per
son representing himself to be an officer
to show his papers that he Is a legally
constituted person to act in that capacity,
and the officer falls to show his author
ity to act in such a case?
C. L. LARGE.
From the best information obtainable on
this subject, it appears that a Game
Warden or his Deputy has the legal right
to arrest any person caught killing pheas
ants out of season. Officers of the law
are not required to present their creden
tials to violators of the law, before arrest
ing' them. If the officer of the law is the
right kind of a man for his position, he
arrests an offender.and takes him along to
a Jail or a Justice, and If heihas exceeded
his authority in any way, the prisoner has
his recourse afterward. It would be a
nice state of affairs if murderers, thieves
or red-handed violators of any law could
stand on their dignity and insist on an
officer producing his credentials before he
produced the handcuffs. When a man has
violated r. law and know3 it, It U hardly
worth his while to add to his offense that
of resisting an officer.
Bonprht the Corbett Ranch.
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 15. James But
ler, a wealthy New Yorker and one of
tho most prominent breeders of harness
horses In America, has secured the fa
mous Corbett ranch, near San Mateo. Tho
deal, which means much to the breeders
of this state, will go into effect October 1.
Tom Keating, the celebrated reinsman,
recommended the place to his millionaire
employer. The San Mateo stock farm
was founded In 1SS2 by the late William
COrbett, who kept Guy Wilkes and other
noted stallions. There Is a mile track
on the farm.
Northwestern People in Ifcvr York.
NEW YORK, Sept. 17. Northwestern
people registered at New York hotels to
day as follows: W. H. Sayers, of Port
land, at the Ashland; H. D. Allen, of
Spokane, at the Bartholdl; F. J. Cotter, of
Olympla, at the Bartholdl; C. T. Batteele,
ot Seattle, at the Continental: Miss R.
L. Whcoler, of Seattle, at the Bartholdl;
J. F. Cole and Mrs. J. C. Cole, of Seattle,
at the Park Avenuo.
"Wanted to;Be"a Soldier.
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 18. Georgo
Foley came here from St. Paul, Minn., to
prevent his 16-year-old son. Archill E.
Foley; from going to the Philippines as
a soldier. He obtained from the United
States Court a writ of habeas corpus com
manding" Colonel J. B. Rawles, of the
Third Artillery, at the Presidio, to pro
duce young Foley In court today and
show cause why his enlistment should
not be declared void, as he enlisted with
out the consent of his parents.
Ballyhoo Bey Laid Up.
NEW -YORK, Sept. 18. The veterinarian
Dr. Sheppard, who has been attending
Ballyhoo Bey, William C. Whitney's two-year-old
thoroughbred ever. since the in
Jury to his hoof, which the horse suffered
while running for the Flatbush stakes,
has certified that the wound, although
not liable to cause permanent disable
ment, will taMe at least two weeks long
er to heal. It Is practically definitely
settled therefore that there will be no
special race between Ballyhoo Bey and
Tommy Atkins of the Keene'3 stable. As
Tommy Atkins will be shipped to Eng
land along with others, If all present ar
rangements are carried out, qn October
13, there is little chance that the crack
youngsters will compete again. The vet
erinarian has advised that for two weeks
Ballyhoo Bey be given complete rest. It
Is doubtful if the colt will be seen here
any more this season.
