Oregon's Osaka Exhibit to
Be in His Charge.
HE WILL LEAVE JANUARY 10
Materials for Display Will Be Gath

to Japan Before First

At a meeting of the Oriental commit
tees of the Board of Trade and Chamber
of Commerce, the Levels and Clark Ex
position and the Manufacturers' Associa
tion, held at the office of the Chamber of
Commerce, on Washington street, last
evening. Colonel 'Henry. E. Dosch was
ohesen to talce charge of the exhibit to
be sent to Osaka, and Instructed to pre
pare for the trip with all possible dis
patch. Colonel Dosch recently returned from a
long trip to Japan, and made his report
on the proposed exhibition to be held at
Osaka next Sprins. He estimated that
about $4000 would be needed to make a
good exhibit, one that would represent
the State of Oregon and the City of Port
land in a suitable manner.
Afttr the first meeting of the Oriental
committees of the various commercial or
ganizations of this city, the raising of the
$4000 was apportioned between the four.
This money has all been secured, and the
meeting latt nght was for the purpose of
making the final arrangements regarding
After discussing the matter it was de
cided that Colonel Dosch shpuld return
with the exhibit to Osaka at the first op
portunity. During the past week a large
part f the exhibit has been brought to
gether by Colonel Dosch, and Jt is thought
that be will have It all ready for the- next
Oriental liner, which will leave the last
of December. Colonel Dosch will go hlm
sef on January 10.
TVhen seen last night Colonel Dosch
said: "I go to the exhibition with a three
fold purpose. First of all, I have In charge
the exhibit of Oregon and of Portland. I
also represent the Lewis and Clark Fair
in a diplomatic way; that Is, to see if the
Japanese will not reciprocate when the
time for our 1B05 fair comes. Then I
shall represent a large number of the
manufacturing houses -of Portland, about
75 in all. In a commercial way, to see if
their tnde cannot be extended into the
Orient in a profitable manner. I have got
a good part o my exhibit together, and
will rush the remainder so, that it can be
shipped in the last part of December. I
will go myself early in January, 1903. I
think our move in this direction will prove
to be very beneficial both to this city and
to the Orient, and we shall do our best to
make It successful."
LEVI ANKENY HERE.
Opposed to the McBride T "Iroad
Commission Bill, He Svl.
"Walla Walla County is strongly opposed
to the railroad commission bill, and will
fight it until the last," said Levi Ankeny,
of Walla Wallla, candidate for Senator,
when seen at the Imperial Hotel last
night. "Such a bill if passed win inter
fere with the building of new railroads
and will greatly check the development of
our part of the state. Our future growth
depends to a large extent upon the success
of the various railroad projects that are
planned for Eastern Washington and
Idaho. Already we can feel the eflect of
the road being built into Lewiston from
Riparia. It will act as an artery to our
growth, bringing new life and trade into
our community. We are surrounded with
thousands of acres of undeveloped land
that is rioh and productive and only
waits for needed railroads to make a mar
ket for the tributary produce, and it will
be a new source of wealth.
When asked as to the outlook for the
commission measure, he said:
"I understand that Governor McBride
made a trip to King County today "In Its
interest. He Is working hard for it, and
has some strong support. However, the
opppsition Is strong and there is a good
chance for it to be defeated."
Mr. Ankeny then spoke of the conditions
of Eastern Washington.
"We have had a very prosperous year,"
said he. "Our crops are as large as I have
ever known and the farmers are getting a
good price for their products. There is a
general air of prosperity throughout East
ern Washington, and we are expecting
great things for the future."
"Yes," he continued, "and the condl
tlons In Oregon and Washington are about
the same. I am glad to see so much im
provement going on here in Portland. You
know I have been accused repeatedly of
being an Oregonian. I believe that I take
as much Interest In your state as some-of
Mr. Ankeny will be in Portland today.
and will probably take a trip to Southern
Oregon before he returns home.
WAITING FOR, THE $1000.
Portland Detectives Have Interest in
Detectives Ford and Cordano are won
dering when they are to receive $1000 re
ward for their work in arresting Nathan
Haworth three years ago, now that Ha
worth was convicted last Saturday at
Salt Lake City, Utah, for murdering
Thomas Sandall, an aged watchman at
Laytori. Haworth was given his choice
between shooting and hanging, and he
chose the former. The sentence of the
court was that he will be shot to death
Haworth was arrested at East Oak
street and Union avenue by Detectives
Ford and Cordano, who had been advised
by the Salt Lake police authorities that
the murderer was working in a stable In
this city. A reward of ?1000 was offered
in the circular sent from Utah at the
time. Three days before the arrest took
place the detectives located their man.
who had a share inn. union-avenue stable.
but when they called at the place Haworth
was away in the country on n. horse deal.
The detectives said to a man they met at
the stable that they wanted to buy a
parlcular team of horses from a man called
Nick "somebody." "Oh," said the stable
man, "you must mean Nick Haworth.
He's my partner. He's gone into the
country with the horses, and will be back
in two or three days." His visitors prom
ised to call back, and took rooms in a
lodging-house near the stable, waited till
Haworth arrived, and then arrested him.
Haworth was turned over to Sheriff Ab
"bott, of Farmlngton, and was then hurried
to Salt Lake City. Friends of Ford and
Cordano say that the $1000 reward cannot
come too soon.
FUN FOR THREE BOYS. ,
And Ho iv It Ends in the Police
Who threw rocks and expectorated at
an unknown Chinaman at Fourth and Al
der streets, on the evening of November
27? That was the question asked of three
boys, Claude Franklin, Lawrence 'Hill
yard and Andrew Feldner, yesterday In
the Municipal Court, and they all pleaded
not guilty. The police evidence was that
a gang of small boys made a disturbance
around the Chinaman and threw rocks at
him, and that the three defendants formed
oart of tbe group. Hlllyard said: "I did
not do anything. I ran away." Then came
Franklin's story, nd he said: '"I did not
throw a rock at the Chinaman,- I saw
a rock bounce on the pavement. Before
that took place I said to the other boys:.
Here's a Chinaman. Let's have a chase.'
I did not expectorate on the Chinaman,
but towards him. Once I threw a rock at
a Chinaman, but not this one."
"Why did you do it?" asked Deputy
City Attorney Fitzgerald.
"Oh, for fun."
"Do you really see any fun in throwing
rocks, at any Chinaman?" Insisted Mr.
"N-o-o, sir' replied the boy hesitat
ingly. Three other small boys were ex
amined as to the names, of the bpys who
threw the rocks, but no further Informa
tion could be gleaned. "Somebody is not
telling the truth," remarkecPMr. Fitzger
ald. "I believe certain boys have talked
the matter over before coming into this
court." The case was continued until
Thursday to get further evidence.
THIRD COMPANY IN FIELD
Application for a New Telephone
If a desirable franchise can 'be secured
from the Council, there will be another
Independent telephone company estab
lished In Portland, which In time may
reach over the entire Coast. The initial
step was taken yesterday when Warren
E. Thomas, acting for the company, made
an application for a franchise.
"I am not in a position to give many de
tails of the plan," said Mr. Thomas yes
terday, 'but there Is no doubt that the
system will be established If a suitable
franchise can be secured. have simply
made the petition, and when It Is put
Into the hands of the committee the mat
ter wlll be taken up with it and we will
see wnat privileges it win give us ana
what can be .done.
"The company has looked over the
ground here, and its members are satis
fied that there is a good field for such a
project In Portland. The plan Ls simply
one that has been tried throughout the
East and found to be successful," con
tinued he. "An independent system is es
tablished in one city to operate In oppo
sition to the company already in the field.
In another city the same thing is done,
and gradually they get their share of the
patronage. After a time a sort of com
bination is effected between the com
panies of the two cities, or of several
cities, so that the. field Is covered by this
combination. There is now an independ
ent company In Seattle that Is gaining
good headway. If there ls one established
in Portland and another in San Francisco,
a combination of these three cities could
be effected, and with a little more work
the new system could be made to reach
as many points as the Pacific States Com
pany now reaches." .
"Will the formation of the new com
pany mean that there are to be reduced
rates?" he asked.
"That I am not prepared to say," said
he, "but I should naturally think so.
There will have to be some inducement
made before the people will change from
the old company to ours, and it is neces
sary that we .have some people that are
now in the old company before there will
be much value to our system."
Asked If there was enough capital back
of the plan to carry it out to the extent
that ls anticipated, he said:
"There ls no limit to the amount of capi
tal that is back of the project. And 'the
people who will undertake it are people
that know the business and will be able to
make It go through. i
"There will be no hurry about It." he
continued. "We are not maklnc: an effort
to get the franchise' before the new char
ter comes Into effect. In fact, the time ls
so near that we cannot expect It to be a
better proposition than the new charter
The petition reads as follows: "
Now comes Warren E. Thomas, of this city,
and respectfully petitions your honorable body
for a franchise to granting him, his heirs,
representatives and assigns, the right and
privilege of erecting, constructing, maintain
ing, operating and using In, along, over and
under any and all streets of the said City of
Portland, a telephone system or systems, and
all. necessary apparatus and appurtenances
for the carrying on of a telephone business
and a telephone company, and granting to
him, his heirs, representatives and assigns the
right and. privilege of erecting poles and
stretching wires thereon of said telephone
system, so as not to Interfere with the free

ciy r travel, the said poles of such tele
phone system or systems to be placed at
such points In tbe streets of said city, and
the wires of such telephone system or sys
tems to be placed at such heights as may be
designated by the proper officials of said
city, and In addition thereto the Tight to do
any and everything for the successful carrying
on of a modern telephone system, with all

COUNCIL COMMITTEE FIXES
CENSE FOR COMPANIES.
Distributers, However, Must Pay $40
Per Year Only Why the
Advance Is Made.
By a unanimous vote the Council com
mittee on licenses recommended yester
day that the tax upon bill-posting com
panies be Increased from $100 to -$400 a
year. A decrease in the license fee, of
the individual pasters and bill distribu
ters" of from $100 to $10 a year was recom
mended. An ordinaneajiaming these rates
will probably be presented at the meeting
of the Common Council tomorrow after
noon, and. unless good objections are made
against It It will undoubtedly be passed.
The higher license question has been
pending before the committee almost since
the day that each of Its members as
sumed his duties as a Councilman. It
was brought up first In July,vwhen Coun
cllmen Sharkey and Albee listened to the
petition of two old bill distributers, named
McKenzle and Flora, who had asked for
a reduction of the tax. They were pay
ing $25 a quarter Into the City Treasury
and they were' barely making a living.
The bill-posting company paid the same
tax, and all the business they got was
what it did not want or could not han
dle. Before taking any action upon the
petition the committees decided to investi
gate conditions in other cities, and reports
Irom those cities were.reaa yesteruay Dy
Mr. Sharkey at a meeting over which
Councilman Shcrrett presided. "Tacoma
reported that its license fee was $50 a
year. San Francisco furnished a copy of
an" ordinary bill-posting ordinance which
did not give the license figure. Oakland,
Cal., stated that it charged a license fee
of one-half of 1 mill, per quarter for each
square foot of billboard surface used by
"Those are the reports," said Mr. Shar
"I have seen the bill-posters several
times," said Mr. Albee, as a starter of
discussion, "and they have promised to
come up and give us a statement of the
billboard surface that they occupy. How
ever, they have failed to appear."
"Pass an ordinance and they will come
quick enough." said Sharkey, "and in my
opinion action should be taken at once.
j Let us have an ordinance dividing the
bill-posters, advertising men, ana wagons,
etc, and divided them- Into two classes.
Class A shall consist of the blll-pos.tlng
companies and class B of the Individual
distributers. The license of the latter
should be reduced from $25 to $10 a quar
ter, and that of the former we may fix
"A man came up here the other day,"
said License Officer McEachern, by way
of explanation, "and he asked for a
license for one quarter. When he "learned
that It would cost him $25 he declined, to
take It, as he said he could get the work
done for half the price by the bill-posting
"The Williams Company has a monop
oly," said Sharkey. "I have heard that it
ls willing to pay a higher license. As It
his proved to be bo generous I think we
should accept the- offer and double the
figure It named. As to the distributers, I
think $10 a quarter ls enough for them.
Tags ior the employes of the bill com
pany should be Issued by the city Instead
of by the company, as ,at present."
"I am In favor of class B," said Albee,
vbut would $400 a year be too high for
"No," said McEachern, "$100 a quarter,
with the badge privilege, will not be too
high. The company employs on an aver
age Ave men a day the year round."
"If we charge by the square foot," said
Sharkey, "the ordinance might have a
tendency to eliminate some of the bill
boards. With a greater area than San
Francisco, we can find a billboard every
few" blocks. There are five miles of
boards In the city, comprising a surface
space of 264,000 square feet. At a tax of
one-half of 1 .mill we would receive a
revenue of $132 a month from the com
pany." "If It can stand $600 a , year I am In
favor of the tax," said Albee. ''I be
lieve, though, that we had better place
the bill-posters In a class by themselves
and charge a flat rate of $400 a year. A
separate ordinance should be drawn up
covering advertising wagons and such
The flat rate on the bill-posters and the
reduction of the tax on the Individual dis
tributers were agreed to, -and an ordln'ance
covering the changes will be drawn up.
The ordinance regulating second-hand
stores, pawn shops, etc., which was in
troduced tiy Councilman Foeller by re
quest, was laid over, as the gentleman at
whose request it was presented did not
appear to state Its objects or Its benefits.
The petition of the Draymeris Associa
tion was returned to the Council with the
recommendation thatlts consideration be
indefinitely postponed. This petition was
for the continuance of the present quar
terly license payments instead of advance
yearly payments, as required by the ordi
nance that will take effect on. Januaryl.
The licenses provided for by the new ordi
nance have already been ordered, and if
the old system should be continued the
city would be put to a greater expense In
making other arrangements that could be
derived from the licenses of the 100 trucks
or so that are operated by the various
