Reducing Time Between Chi
cago and Portland.
"Will Rnsn Throusn Prom Chlcaco
on Sixty-Hour Schedule Made
Possible by Improved Traclc.
The recent change on the Union Pacific
by which mall is brought through from
Chicago in 78 hours -was made by adding
a new fast train between Chicago and
rhfivanne. Formerly trains left Chicago
for Portland at 6:30 and 10:30 P. M. only.
The new fast train leaves Chicago at 10
A. M., and at Cheyenne overtakes the
train that left Chicago nearly 12 hours
previously. There the two consolidate
and rush through to Portland. This ar
rangement brings mail to Portland for de
livery in the morning that did not, under
the old schedule, reach the addressees
until late afternoon or the next day.
This change and the extensive Improve
ments under way on the Union Pacific
and O. R. & N. .give Interest to a rumor
that the line is to Inaugurate a train
schedule that will reduce the time be
tween Portland and Chicago to about CO
hours. It is so bold a departure from
anything that has hitherto been, possible
that not much reliance is placed In it,
but it is conceded that the Union Pa
cific, and O. R. & N. are not spending
their millions In making cut-offs, reduc
ing grades, taking out curves, laying new
steel and building new bridges without
intending to take advantage of superior
track. Ballroad men who have seen
what the roads are doing to Improve
their physical condition say that a big
reduction In running time will be pos
sible, and seems to be contemplated.
An Innovation In transcontinentals is
talked of for the Union Pacific an exclu
sive mall train. This, It Is said, will be
able to get through from Chicago to Port
land In 60 hours, and to be so far In ad
vance of the regular trains to the north
and south that It wJH bring mall for
points as far south as Sacramento, and
north, possibly to Vancouver and Victoria.
It will be the fast mail service to the
Pacific Coast, and when the Oriental
steamships shall get settled on the sched"
ule from Portland, this may became also
the fast trans-Pacific mail route. Nei
ther San Francisco nor Puget Sound can
get as quick service from Chicago as
Portland can when the Union Pacific im
provements shall be finished. It will be
some months yet before the completion
of that work, however, and It Is not like
ly that anything like a GflP-hour schedule
will be attempted before the trying Win
ter weather shall be over.
U. P. end O. S. L. Stick to Portland
Effect on Gateway.
Local railroad men say if the Union
Pacific office Is to be withdrawn from
Portland It means the closing of the Spo
kane and all other gateways. This would
be done, they say, not by formally Is
suing notice that the gate Is closed, but
by instructing the O. R. & N. to route
all Its eastbound business over the Union
Pacific exclusively. So long as the O.
R. fc N. maintains business relations with
the Great Northern at Spokane, It is
argued that the Union Pacific could not
afford to give the western end of the sys
tem into the exclusive management xtt the
O. It. & N., for fear that It would send
too much business to the Great Northern
for the long haul east business that the
Union Pacific would Hko and might get
by maintaining its agonoy here.
Union Pacific men say If the reported
action had been taken they would have
been notified, for it is not the policy of
the company to let sucn news get out
through the newspapers before official
notice is given. It Is well understood by
both Union Pacific and Oregon Short Line
men ana others that the subject of reduc
ing the number of offices representing the
Union Pacific system has been under seri
ous consideration, and It Is said a de
cision to close the Portland office of the
Oregon Short Line was once reached, but
not carried into effect. News of consoli
dation Is expected at any time, and still
it may be long coming.
Thanksgiving: Dinner.
Certainly one is unfortunate If circum
stances compel him to travel on Thanks
giving Day, but lucky is the traveler
whose route Is via the Northern Pacific,
the transcontinental pioneer dining-car
line, for, following up the custom In vogue
for many years past, this old, reliable line
will serve to Its patrons on Thanksgiving
Day its' usual excellent dinner. The bill

New Lumber Tariff Issued.
The new tariff Increasing the lumber
rates from O. R. & N. and Southern Pa
cific points to Utah and Oregon Short
Line points has just been Issued and
will go Into effect December 1. The ad
vance also applies from Montana mills.
From Portland and Southern Pacific
points the rate per 100 pounds has gone
up from S7& ta 40 cents; frorri Eastern
Oregon stations the rate 4s raised from
274 to 30 cents. Puget Sound has no
means of reaching the Utah traxle except
by paying the local over the Portland
rate. If the Spokane gate shall be opened
to that business Seattle will enjoy the
common rate, the same as from Port
land. The formal petition of the Puget Sound
lumbermen for a reduction of the lumber
rate to Nebraska from 50 to M cents "has
been received by the O. R. & N Great
Northern and Northern Pacific, but no
action has yet been taken on It.
The Pannma Contract.
NEW YORK, Nov. 27. The Evening
Post says:
An official of the Panama Railroad
Company Is quoted today as saying that
overtures for a renewal of the contracts
between the Panama Company and the
, Pacific Mall Steamship Company, which
expire December 16, must come from the
latter concern. The Panama Company
has made propositions concerning the re
newal ef the contracts on different terms
from those in force now, and is .not dis
posed to alter them. If not accepted, the
Panama Company will make provisions
to run its own' line of steamships on' the
Paelflc Coast to San Francisco and other
northern points.
Seeking: Entrance Into Ottawa.
OTTAWA, OnL, Nov. 27. It is stated
that there is a possibility of the New

matter today, General Manager Hayes
said that an informal proposition for .the
sale of the line to the New York Central
has been talked of. but as yet It has not
assumed any definite shape, nor would it

To Do Away With Passes.
CLEVELAND, Nov. 27. The culmina
tion of 10 years of constant effort to dis
courage all free transportation on rail
roads seems to be progressing. The first
move was made by the Southwestern
Passenger Association, and a committee
has been appointed by two trunk line as
sociations and the Central Traffic Asso
ciation to canvass the situation. All re
quests for passes have been pigeon-holed
until December 15. The plan is to place
all favors on the basis of 1 cent per mile.

charging claims against the property,
held in trust by them. Later the mort
gage was foreclosed and Hughes bid

since paid the taxes on the same.
Hughes, however, has no objection that
an order be entered that the said prop

American Trainmen Thrown Into
Mexican Prisons.
NOGALES, Ariz., Nov. 27. For several
days there has .been almost a tie-up on
the Sonora division of the Southern Pa
cific. Friday all the engineers running
Into this point from the South refused
to pull a throttle In the Mexican State
of Sonora till their comrades, now lying
in Mexican prisons, be released.
The trouble comes from the custom of
the Mexican authorities In arresting
trainmen whenever an accident happens
to a wayfarer caused by the running
of a train, regardless,, so the railroad
men say, of who may be at fault. The
southbound passenger express Is the only
train that has left for Hermoslllo and
Guayamas for several days, and that was
pulled by Master Mechanic Johnson, in
place of the regular engineer.
In the jail at Guayamas at the present
time are Engineer Charles Smith, Con
ductor Langworthy, one American brake
man and two Mexican brakemen; in jail
in Nogales, Sonora, across the line, are
Engineer Jefferson, Conductor Budge and
Brakeman Rochln; at Magdalena are In
carcerated an American engineer and
brakeman. The railroad company's at
torneys say they have tried In vain to
have several of the men brought to trial
for their Innocence of the charges against
them can-be readily proved. The train
men declare that they are frequently im
prisoned without trial on the slightest

Sore Straits for Funds.
Perhaps there is no Institution in the
City of Portland that stands In more
urgent need of assistance at this Thanks

public will generously come to the rescue
of the Home and Its Inmates within the
next two days, with contributions In casti
sufficient to pay for their "Winter's supply

their store of provisions, which Is sadly
in need of contributions from kind

The Good Samaritan Hospital has sent
out the following appeal for Thanksgiv

Most-Favored-Nation Clause "Will
Not Give Other Powers Same
Right as Spain.
The subjolnedletter has just been re
ceived from Senator Foraker, In answer to
a letter wrltter him by ex-Senator Cor
bett In reference to the position taken
by Mr. Corbett, In his letter recently pub
lished In The Oregonlanf
Cincinnati, O., Ncv. 22, 1000. Hon. H. W.
Corbett, Portland, Or. My Dear Senator: I
was glad to receive your letter of the 15th
Inst., and have read with much Interest the
newspaper clipping Inclosed. Tour claim that
no other nation except Spain has a right to
trade with the Philippines on the Bame condi
tions as the United States, is entirely correct.
Our title Is twofold conquest and purchase.
But if It rested on only one or the other of
these grounds, the case would be the same.
The treaty provision, giving Spain the com
mercial advantage It provides, was a part of
the consideration for tho purchase In the one
case, and a condition of the terms of peace In
the other. "Whether viewed in the one light or
in the other, the provision Is not In violation
of the "most-favored-natlon' clause of our
treaties with other governments.
I take the liberty of sending you, under sep
arate cover, some remarks made by me be
fore the Union League Club, in Philadelphia,
In regard to the legislation enacted by Con
gress for Porto Rico.
With kind remembrance . and sincere good
wishes, I remain, very truly yours,- etc.,
The following Is the portion of Mr.
Corbett's letter alluded to and answered
by Senator Foraker:
It Is" "Important that products, especially of
the Pacific States, should be exported to these
Islands free of custom duties, If we ever expect
to build up a commerce with them, and re
ceive In exchange the products of their Indus
try. It Is well known that their products are
dissimilar in character from ours, and we can
well afford to exchange the products of tho
soil of the Pacific States for those of these
It is stated that our treaty with Spain, by
which we purchased these Islands for the con
sideration of $20,000,000, and substantially free
trade between Spain and these Islands for 10
years, places us under the; obligation to extend
the same privileges, or free trade, to other na
tions, under the clause that they would be
entitled to the same privileges "as the most
favored nations," under their treaty stlpula- I
tions. uy this treaty we made a purchase.
certain concessions were continued and guar
anteed, and unrestricted trade was also sub
stantially guaranteed to Spain for the 10 years.
These concessions and guarantees were as
much a part of the purchase price of these
possessions as the $20,000,000. With these
other nations have nothing to do, and had no
right to question. It differs entirely from an
ordinary commercial treaty. This was sub
stantially a bill of purchase with certain con
ditions attached, consequently the most-favored
'clause usually In commercial treaties has no
application in this case. The President was
undoubtedly right In recommending that the
same revenue laws should Be extended over
Porto "Rico as we're In force In the other terri
tories of the United States. A majority In
Congress determined otherwise, to which de
cision he cheerfully acquiesced, trusting to fu
ture legislation for a -proper remedy (thereby
preventing a division In his party). The sound
Judgment of the Republican party can be safe
ly trusted ultimately to determine the future
policy favorable to these new possessions.
I am c le who cannot interpret this treaty
or bill oi purchase as a treaty coming within
the category that would entitle other nations
to the same free-trade privileges as Spain.
Interesting; Lecture by Mr. Torrey,
of San Francisco.
Mr. Frederick C. Torrey, of San Fran
cisco, discussed. "The Relation of Art to
Modern Life" last night before the Port
land Art Association. His remarks,
which were listened to with profound at
tention, opened with a reference to the
prevailing characteristic of the 19th cen
tury, viz., the growing importance of the
common man. "This.has effected a com
plete revolution In the writing of history,"
said the lecturer, "which is no longer a
biography of royalty but of peoples. The
doors of Innumerable colleges, libraries
and museums have been thrown open to
the public An extraordinary impetus has
been given to art by the establishment
of great art collections, sqch as the Na
tional Gallery, of London; that of Amster
dam (originally founded at The Hague);
the Louvre, and Berlin, all of which date
from the 19th century. The tendency Is
for valuable private collections to revert
to the people, and4here are unmistakable
Indications that America will. In time,
be on a par with Europe, as regards the
value of her public gallerhis and art
museums. The question, therefore, rises,
In what way do these affect our lives?
It will be easily seen that not only pleas
ure but instruction Is attained. We are
stimulated by them to greater activity.
In some occult way they exert a refining
Influence upon our dally lives.
"The majority of mankind are at first
attracted to such pictures as recall a
definite memory of some familiar locality
or person. There is a bond of associa
tion; In other words, a sentiment or
story. But experience soon develops
even In the crudest observer, a separation
of the aesthetic from the literary ele
ment. Thus is evolved tne esthetic con
sciousness. It Is not so much what is
represented in the picture as how it is
represented. What Is seen merely by
the retina of the eyes, Is, of little conse
quence compared with the message which
it brings to the higher consciousness.
"But modern man Is essentially a let
tered individual, who receives his Impres
sions through print, and it is hard for
him to break old habits. This is a
I scientific age. He reads in print a ae-
scription of an Instrument which he has
never seen, for measuring the humidity
of the air, and straightway is able to
construct the instrument from the de
scription. "But when he comes to art, all this Is
changed. He cannot find words to ex
press the varying colors of the sunset, or
tho look on Mary's face as she glances
down at the babe on her breast. The
flower may be analyzed In all Its parts
under the microscope, the very point
found which attracts the insect that as
sists In Its fertilization. But after the
botanist, the chemist, the physicist have
all reached the limit of their labors over
the flower, there Is still something left
unexplained the emotion experienced In
contemplating the beauty of the flower.
"The ideal artist must become a poet.
He should have not only nccuracy of ob
servation, but also interpretative powers
and skill of expression. Thus the uni
verse presents Its truths to our conscious
ness In this two-fold aspect of science and
art, neither one of which Is complete
without the other.
"The human face, with its varied ex
pressions of emotion is drawn by the
caricaturist, who draws a single line for
tho mouth, curving It downward to rep
resent sorrow, upward to signify joy. Thus
Is character typified In certain lines of
significance In the face. It belongs to
the artist to select, rejecting accidental
lines, and retaining such as are typical.
The artist therefore becomes a seer, or
"You will observe a difference between
Durer and Rembrandt as regards this
power of selection. Rembrandt was more
abstract, he caught the Inner character of
the man he portrayed; whereas, Durer
reproduced the very pores of the skin,
magnlfylng-glass In hand; but his vision
was only skin-deep.

"Modern criticism sets forth this princi
ple, that true art has in Itself nothing to
do with ethics; its province Is distinct
from practical life. The artist should not
have an ethical purpose, but he should be
ethically sound."
Cltlzena of Clackamas Station Up In
Arms Over a Danger.
A number of the property-owners and
residents of Clackamas Station are regis
tering some pretty lively kicks at this
time against the Vlgorlt Powder Com
pany, who have completed the erection of
a new magazine, 24x36 feet, almost In
their dooryards. This magazine and pow
der supply house Is located about 200 feet
from the railroad depot and postofflce,
and within 200 feet of the public school.
No powder has yet been stored In the
new magazine, and some of the Indignant
citizens make bold to assert that there
shall be none, if any law or statute can
be brought into requisition to prevent It.
These persons state that from the very
moment powder Is stored In this ware-'
house their lives and property will be In
imminent danger of destruction without
any premature warning. It Is further as
serted that property values have taken a
tumble and that real estate holdings are
a burden, all on account of the new pow
der house.
Vigorous steps will at once be taken to
rid the town of the possible stores of dy
namite that may come in the future.
Already a move Is on foot to Incorporate
the town, and should the unexpected
occur by the election of a City Council
favoring the storing of powder In the
municipal limits, other remedies will be
tried. The Legislature will be petitioned
to pass an act making It unlawful to
store powder within a certain distance of
public school buildings.

Man Who Snot s Boy Halloween
Held to Answer.
Judge Cameron, after Ions consideration
of the matter and strong- persuasion by
interested persons, cannot convince him
self that because a 14-year-old youngster
hit Charles Lundeen In the left optic with
a chunk of mud, It was sufficient provo
cation to Mr. Lundeen to put a bullet In
the lad's arm. The trouble all arose
out of a Halloween prank, and the de
tails were given at tno time. Briefly
stated, Mr. Lundeen, who resides at 433
Flanders street, took exceptions to tho
pranks of a number of mischevious
urchins who were out celebrating. Armed
with a pistol he threw open his front door
and was met with a fusillade of mud ball3,
one of which caught him fair In the eye.
Then Lundeen blazed away and lltt'e
Andrew Matthews stopped the bullet wlih
his arm.
Lundeen's defence 13 that he merely
"fired In the air" to frighten his youthf Jl
tormentorsy. and asked for discharge on
the allegation that the shooting was pure
ly accidental. In the Municipal Court
yesterday Judge Cameron bound him over
to the grand Jury.
