I. A. MAGRUM DEAD
Prominent Citizen Passes
SERIOUSLY ILL FOR A MONTH
Came to Oregon In. 1STO, and Since
Has Been Prominent In Its Busi
ness, Political and educa
FOREST GROVE. Aug. 11 (Special.)-!.
A. Macrum. for many years a prominent
business man of the state, died at his
home hero this afternoon. Death was
due to acute dlabfltes, from which Mr.
Macrum had suffered for more than a
month, and was not unexpected. Two
week6 ago his son. Dr. C. A. Macrum, of
Portland, who had been vlsltlns: him con
stantly, saw that the end was approach
ing, and the other members of the family
were warned to prepare for the worst.
From that time Mr. Macrum failed grad
ually until he passed away. Arrange
ments have been made for the funeral,
which will take place at Forest Grove
Friday. Interment -will be In the Union
Mr. Macrttm -was a native of Pittsburg,
Pa., where he was born in 1812. His par
ents were Scotch-Irish, and emigrated
from the North of Ireland in 1S30. and
coming to America, settled at Pittsburg,
and later engaged in farming near that
city. His father died In 1SS2, and his
mother In 1SS5. In 1570 Mr, Macrum came
to Oregon, and as an educator, lawyer and
financier was an active participant In the
development of the state.
Mr. Macrum "was educated at the Leech
burg Institute and the State Normal
School in Pennsylvania. Completing his
studies when very young, he began teach
ing In Pittsburg as principal of the Sec
ond Ward School, and after three years
he secured an Interest and taught In the
Newell Institute, a private school for fit
ting' young men for college, and also for
graduating women in classic music and
languages. The school numbered 125 pu
pils and 11 teachers were constantly em
ployed. In 1870 Mr. Macrum moved to
Oregon City, -where for three years he
was principal of the Oregon City Semi
nars. During this time he studied law In
the office of Johnson & McCown, and.in
1874 he was admitted to practice by the
Supreme Court. The law firm of Johnson,
McCown & Macrum was then formed,
and Mr. Macrum removed to Portland and
opened a branch office. The partnership
was continued for eight years with marked
success, and was then dissolved.
In 1SS3 the former law partners became
Interested in the organization of the Wil
lamette Savings Bank, in Portland, and
Mr. Macrum was chosen cashier and man
ager of the institution. The business: of
the bank grew so rapidly that- in 1SS6. It
was converted .Into- the- Merchants Na
tional Bank, Mr. Macrum continuing as
cashier. In October, 1890, the capital
stock was increased from $100,000 to $1,000,
000. and the bank became one of the solid
financial institutions of the city.
In politics Mr. Macrum was a strong
Republican, and his Interest in honest
elections was second only to the Interest
he took in educational matters. In 1876
he was. elected Superintendent of Schools
of Multnomah County, and he was re
elected In 1878. In 1833, after he had re
tired from the banking business, he was
elected by the Legislature as a member of
the. State Railroad Commission. The other
Commissioners. were General H. B. Comp
aon and Colonel J. B. Eddy. Under the
law tho three were to hold terms of two
years, but through the bolt from the Sen
atorial caucus in 1895, which caused the
setting aside of all other matters, and the
hold-up of the Legislature of 1897, each
remained In office until 1899, when the com
mission was abolished. After leaving of
fice, Mr. Macrum passed most of his time
at his home in Forest Grove, making only
'occasional trips to Portland.
In 1596 Mr. Macrum was chairman of the
Washington County delegation to the Con
gressional convention in the First District,
and it was in a great part due to his ef
forts that Blnger Hermann was defeated
for renomlnatlon and Thomas H. Tongue
secured the place. Mr. Macrum was
chairman of the Congressional convention
at McMInnville two years ago.
Mr. Macrum's talents were diversified,
and it was said of him triat he could teach
religion to the children In the Sunday
school with the same ease that be could
as an educator instill the rudiments of the
language In their minds. He was a strict
Congregationalism and he always took an
Interest in church and Sunday school
work. For years he taught a class, and
several times, when occasion demanded It,
he filled the pulpit very acceptably.
When Quite ybung Mr. Macrum was
married In Westmoreland County, Pa.,
to Miss Westtnna Brubbs, of Allegheny
City. They had six children, namely,
Dr. Charles A. and Will S. Macrum. of
Portland: Mrs. W. H. Byrd, of Salem,
and Newell,, John W. and Garfield, of
Forest Grove. The family residence is
near Forest Grove, where Mr. Macrum,
preferring life in the country after many
.busy years In the city, had built a large
and handsome house.

Chief Engineer Kinney, of the Great
Central Railroad, last night gave out the
statement that the transcontinental fea
ture of the Coos Bay Railroad had been
accepted and he had been directed to
make location of the line through to Salt
Lake City. This acceptance, ho said,
provides for bonding the road at $lt,C0O a

the stack of the Northern Pacific?
"I may say this regarding the construc
tion ot the road: We will probably be
gin first on the Salt Lake end, and wIU
drive the piles during the coming WlntcT
for the road across the southern end of
Great Salt Lake. The Salt Lake end of
the line will be under a separate Incor
poration, which will be filed In a few days.
"H. D. Jerrett, first assistant engineer,
and Mr. Pelts, of Philadelphia, left to
night to Join George Lyman Moody, who
has been reconnolterlng the Portland line
for a considerable distance from Coos
Bay, and fhey will go to work on the
main line at once. I regard It as quite
significant that my Instructions are to
get the striightcst line possible, that any
reasonable advance construction cost will
be borne for -the sake of getting a first
class road. That looks to me like serious
Major Kinney also gave out the fact
that it had been determined to make the
Belt Line Railway around Coos Biy a
trolley line, and that Loon Lake Falls, on
a branch of the-Umpqua River, had been
acquired for power purposes.

then sprang upon them suddenly. The
entire outpost rusbed to the relief of the
sentinels, but they were too late, and the
Moros escaped, although possibly a few of
The American sentinels were terribly
cut by the swords and spears. The at

Ti Gage. Governor of California, was ar
rested today on a warrant sworn to by
John D. Spreckel3 and W. S. Leake, owner
and manager, respectively, of the Saa
Francisco Call, charging the Governor
with criminal libel. Governor Gage was
prepared for the arrei't and had already
prepared a petition for a .writ of habeas
corpus, which was presented in the Su
perior Court immediately after the ser
vice of the warrant. Judge Shaw granted
the petition, making the writ returnable
at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning, and
naming a nominal ball of $50. responsi
bility for which he himself assumed.
Governor Gage based his application
for the writ on the allegation that no
cause for action existed, and that hid
actions had been In the course of his
official duties. Governor Ga-ge cited casea
and legal decisions to show that neither
the President of the United States nor
the Governor of an individual state can
be arrested for any overt act, provided
such act was performed In the course ot
his Judicial actions as President or governor.

SCRANTON, Pa.7Aug. 13. At a big
mass meeting of strikers In Dickson 'City
today, District President Nicolls and ex
National Organizer Dllcher bitterly de
nounced the Father O'Reilly sermon. Mr.
Nlcholls asserted -that a man who would
thus defile God's temple would have
God's curses fall upon him. Mr. Dllcher
asserted that the sermon was unwarrant
ed and a tissue of falsehoods. In rebut
ting the attack made utfon President
Mitchell, Mr. Dllcher stated that the
priest at Spring Valley. III.. Mr. Mitchell's
home, had written O'Reilly, protesting
against his personal allusions to the mine
workers' leader, and testifying that he

of Spring Valley.
PITTSBURG, Aug. 13. It is reported
that the American Flint Glassworkers
Union has gained a decided victory In
securing from the Macbeth-Evans Glass
Company, the only producer of machine
made chimneys, a compromise advance
for skilled men of the factories of 7 per
cent in wages. This compromise Is ex
pected to put 5000 workers bick to work.

Coos Bay and Salt Lake City over the
new route has not yet been determined.
More than this, Mr. Kinney announced
that a railroad would be built to reach be
tween San Francisco and Portland along
the coast. This, will not be a part of his
enterprise, but he says It will be built
by capital friendly to the Coos Bay-Salt
Lake line. It Is understood that it will
bo an extension of the California North
western, which now reaches northward
from San Francisco Bay to Uklah, In
Mendocino County, a distance of 112 miles,
and has a line surveyed through to Eu
reka, on Humboldt Bay. Major Kinney
says he has no knowledge of the details
of that enterprise, but he Is assured it
will be built. Tillamook Bay has been
mentioned In connection with It, and it
may be that Portland's railroad to Tilla
mook will form a section of the through
coast line between this city and San
"Who Is It that will do all this? Whose
money or what railroad is supporting
"Well, to tell you the candid truth, I
'don't know," he responded. "And what Is
more, I don't know as I care much. I do
know that I am employed by responsible
people, who are advancing all the money
necessary In the preliminary operations:
that we are paying promptly for what we
buy, and will continue to do so. I know
that I have been Instructed 'to proceed
with all possible speed to make the defi

GOVERNOR GEER ISSUES LABOR DAY
SALEM, Or., Aug. 13. (Special.) Governor Geer this afternoon '
Issued the first Labor day -proclamation in the history of Oregon. It
"Whereas. The Legislature of Oregon has eet apart the first
Monday In September of each year as a legal holiday to be known
as Labor day;
"Therefore I, X T. Geer, Governor of said state, do hereby recom
mend that all places of business of whatsoever kind, as far as pos
sible, be closed on Monday, September 1, 1902, and that the day be
devoted to an observance of such exercises as may contribute to a
better understanding between labor and capital, the great moving
forces behind modern Industrial development, and It is especlally
urged that employers co-operate with their employes in a mutual ob
servance of the day In such manner as will fittingly recognize the re
liance which each must place upon the other before the best results
from both may be expected or attained.

Mr. Buchanan further stated that the

Nominated for Congress.
GREEN .BAY, Wis., Aug. 13. The Re
publicans of the Ninth Wisconsin district
today, nominated Congressman Edwin S.
The preliminary work will take three
months at least, so I do not look for
active construction to begin on the line
before next Spring. That Is, on the main
line.' Work on the Belt Line Railway at
Coos Bay will not be delayed for that,
"As to tho people who are really behind
this project, I don't think that's any of
the public's business. I- notice that most
of the important railroads are built with
out disclosing to the public just whose
money, goes into them. Many railroads
are built and operated for years before
J the hand that really was behind them
takes public possession. For that matter,
I think It would puzzle most people to
tell Just whose money Is running some of
our big railroads that have been doing
business for years. Can you tell today
whether Vanderbllts or Goulds hold the
larger part ot the stock of the Union Pa
cific? I can't, and I don't know that It

satisfaction I will fehoot.hlm dead in his

prevented them from getting before Con

It, and ho says for me to wait. I have
waited long enough. I want a settlement
and I am going to have It. I will have his
life or satisfactory reparation."
Precautionary Measures- Withdra-ivn.
SAN' FRANCISCO. Aug. 13. The reason
given by Army officers who have arrived
on the transport Lawton for the renewed
outbreak of cholera in the Philippines is
the premature withdrawal of precaution
ary measures by the American officials at
Manila under the Impression that the dis
ease had been fought to a standstill. The
scourge had only been scotched, however,
and with the relaxation of the controlling
grip it resumed its work of devastation
with renewed vigor.
"We will not get rid of the cholera In
the Philippines." said Lieutenant Assist
ant Surgeon T. L. Rhoades, "until the
heavy rains come. That will be In Oc
tober. In the meanwhile our people are
doing everything possible 'to keep the dis
ease within bounds."

the number of cases from now on. He

early suppression of the scourge. The
chief factor In that direction was the
rainy season, which. General Forwood
said, had already opened and will con
tinue until November.
