Railroad Men Coming
in April. .
HAY HELP THE 1905 FAIR
Opportunity of Which Ad
vantage Should Be Taken,
SUGGESTIONS OF A. D.CHARLTON
llow the Tranneontlnentnl raNKeiifirer
AsMOcintiou Came to Select Port
land for Next Meeting, and
What We Should Do.
The Transcontinental Passenger Asso
ciation -will hold Its next meeting In
Portland next April. Thlrty-slx rail-
roads west of Chicago are members of
It all the Important lines. A. D.
Charlton, assistant general passenger
agent of the Northern Pacific, suggests
that the Lewis and Clark authorities
take advantage of this opportunity to
get the co-operation of the passenger
trafllc officials, thus securing a promo
tion agency of Inestimable value.
Before adjourning its meeting in San
Antonio, Tex., last week, the Transcon
tinental Passenger Association voted to
bold its next quarterly meeting in Port
land in the latter part of April. No Port
land representative was present to work
up a campaign for this city. This had
been done some time before by A. D.
Sharlton, assistant general passenger
jgent of the Northern Pacific His fath
sr, James Charlton, is chairman of the
Transcontinental Passenger Association,
md to him the Northern Pacific man first
presented the propriety of holding a meet
ing in Portland, and he also urged it upon
Dther prominent members of the associa
tion. They received it favorably, and
tvhen the suggestion was made to the as
tociatlon at San Antonio there was prac
tically no objection to coming here next
This does not mean that there will be a
gTeat crowd of visitors in Portland, a lot
9f excursionists for the railroads and ho
tels to reap profit from. Perhaps there
Rill be 100 persons here by reason of the
meeting. Its significance lies in the fact
that the men who attend these meetings
ire the best advertisers in the world, and
ft Is of groat Importance to Portland and
the whole Pacific Northwest, and, at this
time, particularly to the Lewis and Clark
relebratlon, that they should come out
aere and get in personal contact with the
fountry. They have, been In official con
tact with us for a long time- A closer
knowledge is highly desirable, and this
jill be the opportunity to gain it. Many
Df the passenger traffic officials In trans
sontinental territory have never vfcited
the Pacific Northwest.
It is only within the past year that the
Northern Pacific and the Great Northern
Railroads have been members of the
Transcontinental Passenger Association.
The association has been in existence, in
jnexform or another, for the past 20 years.
The gaining of these Important members
in this field, and the fact that all of the
roads in the association g"et much busi
ness from this quarter, weighed in getting
the coming meeting appointed for Port
end. Now it is for the Lewis and Clark
people to make the most of It.
Opportunity Shonld De Improved.
That A. D. Charlton appreciates the im
portance of getting the Lewis and Clark
Exposition before the transcontinental
passenger officials is shown by the follow
tng letter, which he yesterday sent to
President H. W. Corbett:
Tou have undoubtedly noticed by the press
Jlspatches that the next meeting of the Trans
tontlnental Passenger Association will be held
it Portland the latter part of April. When I
teas East last October I urged that It was due
the Northern transcontinental llnes members
thereof, that the association should, at an early
Sate, select Portland as the place of meeting.
Oils, you will note, has been done.
The Transcontinental Passenger Association
somprlses about all of the transcontinental
lines and their connections west and southwest
3f Chicago. The Importance of this meeting
In connection with the Lewis and Clark Cen
tennial cannot be o'erestlmated. As this asso
ciation will, at a much later date than the
April meeting, fix the rates, etc., for our 1005
Fair, It Is desirable that the members thereof
thould be properly posted and Impressed with
the magnitude and Importance of our Fair.
Ko better opportunity wfll present itself than
the meeting the latter part of April. The rail
roads are the big factors In advertising such
airs and expositions as the Lewis and Clark
Tentennial, and as the railroads comprising
the association mentioned cover all the territory
rest and southwest of Chicago, 3-ou can readily
lee the benefit our Fair will derive by being
properly placed before Its members.
I would respectfully suggest a meeting be ar
ranged between the Transcontinental Associa
tion and the Lewis and Clark Centennial board
of directors, and that the association be made
acquainted with the Importance of our Cen
tennial. It seems to me that some printed
pamphlet should be prepared setting forth In
concise form the importance and objects of our
Fair, the pamphlet to be distributed among
the members of the association at their April
meeting. These meetings arc held but four
tiroes per year, and generally In the large busi
ness centers west and southwest of Chicago. I
doubt very much If there will be another meet
ing In Portland for some time to come, and
our Fair directors should take advantage of
the April meeting properly to place our Cen
tennial before' the members of the association.
For your furthor Information I enclose here
with a list giving the names of the railroads
jomprislng the association. Tou will note there
ire about CO. Each road has from one to two
or more representatives In attendance at the
meetings, such as the trafllc manager, general
passenger agent and assistant general passen
If there Is anything further that 1 can do to
advance the Interests of the Lewis and Clark
Centennial, command me.
Mr. Charlton Is much impressed with
the idea that here will be the best possi
ble occasion for securing wide Interest in
the Lewis and Clark Exposition, an op
portunity that will not occur again, and
that may now be easily seized. "Those
men," said he, "not only have the means
of reaching the great public, whether it
reads or travels or. stays at home, but
they also know how to moke the most of
such an event as this will be. It is their
business to get the attention and interest
of the people, and they are experts at It.
Wo have not money enouch to buy the
eervlce which they can render without
money and without price. The railroads
are glad enough to have something like
this to push. By getting their good-will
and starting early both the Exposition and
the railroads will be able to make the
most of the occasion. Co-operation will
oay, and in this case it will bring support
to thn Fair that will be almost the life
of the enterprise; at least, it may repre
sent the difference between success and
"However, the visit of these passenger
officials to Portland for 'this meeting will
be of general value. They will probably
make a trip to Puget-Sound and will also
take excursions up and down the Colum
bia, and possibly up the Willamette-Valley.
The Pacific Northwest will thus be
brought to mean something definite to
.them. The Lewis and Clark celebration
will not be an isolated fact to them, but
will take its place in relation to the social
and industrial development of the country.
We must see that they have facilities for
getting acquainted with the people and
the country. Other cities think it worth
their while to make a favorable Impres
sion on the passenger officials of the great
railroads, and Portland would dp Itself
great injustice if It were not to make an
effort to win favor of them.
"The Lewis and Clark people should,- in
my opinion, have a session with the as
sociation, at which the scope of the Fair
should be adequately presented and the
hearty co-operation of the railroads should
be invited. An exchange of sentiments on
this matter would be proper and helpful.
The railroad men will probably bo able to
give pointers as valuable as those they
receive. But the. main thing, after all, is
to establish a fraternal interest, a spirit
of cordial co-operation and good fellow
ship. "We should begin to get Lewis and
Clark into all the railroad literature.
Every new folder that is issued should
have a iage or two about this celebration
and its signllicance, and the country which
it will in a measure exploit. This will
supply a fresh text upon which to preach
the old gospel of Western progress and
opportunity in new terms. I tell you
things are opening up in great shape, and
if we have the good sense and energy to
Improve our chances we will come out all
right, and the Fair will be a glorious suc
cess in every respect. The thing to do is
to get the railroad passenger men actively
THEIR HOUSES SLIPPED.
Three ReIdentH of "Willamette
Heights Drive rile In Back Yard.
Three residents of Willamette Heights
have been forced to drive rows of piles In
their back yards to keep their houses from
settling down In the filled earth that the
frequent rains of the past few days have
made very soft. Warren Knight, Charles
Hugglns and A. Tucker are the unfortu
nate owners of the three houses, which
are respectively numbered 3C2, 372 and 376
Thirty-second street. North.
The houses were originally owned by
Mews. Russell and Blyth, and were sold
to the present purchasers on the Install
ment plan. Hugglns' house is probably the
most badly Injured of the three, and Rus
sell & Blyth will exchange it with the
owner for some other house he may
choose in place of the present Injured
The houses face the west, and are situ
ated on the crest of the first elevation
beyond Balch Creek. The only damage
that can befall them Is to settle in their
present situations, as It Is hardly possible
that they will slide toward the foaming
creek below. Mr. Knight's house is built
on cement piers extending far down into
the made terrace, and the only damage he
has suffered has been to have his back
wall fall for a few feet. "The damage Is
very slight to me," he said yesterday. "My
house Is on piers, and the wall doesn't
support anything, so I will just board up
the space and it will be as good as ever. I
put in a row of piles to keep off any dan
ger in the future.
"Hugglns' house is all right with the
exception of the back wall, and the same
may be said of Tucker's. His is on piers,
too, and beyond the cracking of tme plas
ter there is no harm done. He had to take
off his back steps so that the piledrlver
could get In close, but they can be 1 put
back again very easily. Still, It's not
pleasant to think your house may settle.
and I am glad we have a good, strong lot
of timbers driven down now to prevent
any futuro recurrence."
Took the Cook Stove.
Orlena Coates has sued John C. Coates
for a divorce because of cruel treatment,
and she also asks for $20 per month ali
mony for the support of herself and a
child C months old. Mrs. Coates alleges
in her complaint that on December 10,
1902, while she was sick In bed, her hus
band brought two men and an express
wagon to their home and held her while
the men took away the cook stove, a lamp
and two chairs from the house. She as
serts that her husband has beaten her
and called her vile names. She asks the
court to compel him to pay $100 to defray
the costs of the suit, and 510 per week
alimony, while the case Is pending.

Defendants in Foster Suit
File Affidavits. .
DENY CHARGES IN COMPLAINT
Frank: C. Sarngc and III "Wife Claim
They Itemed No Order to Prevent
FrccmaKOitx From Seelnj?
Frank C. Savage and his wife, Dora
Savage, who are defendants In a suit In
which property valued at $10,000 deeded
to Mrs. Savage by John R. Foster, I In
volved, say the complaint Is a He from
beginning to end. 1
Savage states that Foster brought them j
hero from Now York In 1SS0. and he
worked for the firm of Foster & Robertson
for .even venrs. They lived with Mr.
and Mrs. Foster at different time cover
ing a period of over seven yean?. Mr.
Savage also claims that he assisted in
nlannlnir th nn-sent Foster residence. He
denies that in speaking of the suit a week ,
ago. ho accused J. W. Cook, wno appears
in the case an the next friend of John R.
Foster, of blackmail.
In this connection Savage said: "I have
known Cook a great many years and know
him to be an honest, upright man. I had
business dealings when I was in the rail
road service, and he was a pleasant man
to do business with."
With regard to other features of the
case Savage said a false impression has
been created. He said:
"Mrs. Savage was a niece of Mrs. Foster
and Mrs. Foster left her all her property.
My daughter, Lizzie, lived with Mr. and
Mrc Foster for over two years past, and
up to the tlmo of Mrs. Foster's death,
which occurred recently, she took full
charge of the house. She collected all of
the rents and paid all the bills. Mr.
Foster has no children and never had
any. The property mentioned was deeded
to us at the request of Mrs. Foster."
Attorney W. W. Cotton, for the defend
ants, will appear before Judge Sears this
morning and argue a motion to dissolve
the Injunction recently granted. It will
be denied that Foster has been deprived
of the society of friends,, or that Mrs.
Savage gave orders to exclude Free
masons. He will present affidavits in
contradiction of the affidavit filed Monday
by Homer D. Sanborn. These counter
affidavits have been filed in the State Cir
An affidavit signed by Frank C. Savage
states: "It is not true that my wife and
myself refused to permit the friends and
acquaintances of John R. Foster to visit
him. I have never excluded any person,
and have never directed any person to
refuse to allow persons to see Foster."
An affidavit signed by Bertha Kruger,
the cook In the Foster domicile, recites
that Mr. and Mrs. Savage never" told her
to exclude friends and acquaintances of
Foster. On the other hand, she states:
"Since January. 1902, H. D- Sanborn has
taken most, if not all, of his meals In the
house. Sanborn had a key to the front
door, and was able to admit himselfiat all
times. I know of no friends or acquaint
ances of Foster who were excluded from
the house. On December 16, 1902, San
born, in my presence, Informed my sister,
Sophia Graves, that if Masons called to
see Mr. Foster, they were to be told they
could not see .him. The matter was after
wards brought to the attention of Dora
W. Savage, and she revoked the instruc
tions given to my sister by Sanborn.
"I have "read the affidavit of H. D. San
born, the portion of which relating to me
Is as follows:
" 'Thereafter I had a conversation with
Bertha Kruge, an unmarried sister of
Sophie, who was then and there in said
house as cook or first girl, and asked her
if she had the same orders about admit
ting Masons that Sophie had, ai.J she said
she had. This conversation "took place
as she came out of the pantry and I was
standing by the screen door that leads on
to the back jwrch'.'
"I never had any such conversation with
the said Sanborn; I never stated to the
said Sanborn at any time whatsoever that
I had the same orders about admitting
Masons that my sister Sophia had, or
that Mrs. Savage ever gave me any such
orders or instructions. I further depose
and say that Mrs. Savage did not give me
any suoh orders or Instructions, or any In
exclude Masons; that, acting upon his In
WILL SETTLE NO MORE
structions to the effect that I should ex
clude any friends or acquaintances who
sought to visit Mr. Foster."
Sophia Graves has subscribed to a simi
lar affidavit about Sanborn having a key
to the house and taking meals there. She
states further that Sanborn told her to
structlons, she did keep one man out, and
that when Mrs. Savage heard of.it she
was angry and Informed her she must' not
receive instructions from Sanborn, who
hadNno authority In the house. .
Miss Graves also denies that she made
the following statement to Sanborn, as he
states In his affidavit:
"She said to me that she had orders not
to admit any Masons. I asked her who
gave the orders. She said. 'Mrs.- Savage.'
I said: 'You will have to be very careful.
Sophie. In the first place, you must ask
them and know that they are Masons, and
then you have to obey your orders.' No one
was present other than said Sophie and
myself, and the conversation occurred In
the dining-room Just as I was going out
of the dining-room Into the hall."
Mrs. Dora W. Savage has signed an af
fidavit denying that she ever excluded
visitors or gave orders to others to do so.
She concludes as follows:
"My mother, who Is now deaf, was a
sister of Mrs. John R. Foster, and upon
the death of Mrs. Foster my husband, my
daughter and myself moved Into the resi
dence of said John R. Foster at the re
quest of Mrs. Foster, expressed prior to
her death, and at the request of John R.
Foster. My husband and myself have
lived In Portland for 21 years, and during
this time visited the house of Mr. Foster,
and my daughter Lizzie lived in
the house with John R. Foster
and Mrs. Foster for a period of two
years prior to the death of Mrs. Foster
John R. Foster had no relatives living in
the City of Portland or in the State of
Oregon, and my brother, William Bolles,
my daughter and myself are the only rela
tives of Mrs. Foster living in the said city
RIVER BOATMAN DROWNED
Peter Genrln Leap From Steamer
Into Columbia River.
For some unknown reason Peter "Gearin.
a well-known river boatman, leaped over
board from the steamer Metlako -Into the
Columbia yesterday about noon, and be
fore aid could be rendered, he sank be
neath the seething water and was
drowned. The accident occurred Just above
Reed's Island, east of "Vancouver, and
from the evidence given by the men
aboard the boat it cannot be determined
whether it was a case of suicide or wheth
er the unfortunate man lost his balance
and fell over the 3lde.
Gearin, who has served for many years
past on local boats, left Portland Mon
day morning on the Tahoma, bound for
The Dalles and way points. When the
boat reached "Vancouver, however, Gearin
walked off and did not continue his pass
age, remaining all night in town instead.
The Metlako left yesterday morning,
and when she arrived at "Vancouver Gear
In was on hand. climbed aboard and
started with the boat up the river. He
walked arpund over the boat, apparently
acting as usual, and as the boat was pass
ing Reed's Island, he walked to the upper
deck and remained there for a short time.
After the Metlako passed the upper point
of the Island he started down the com
panlonway to the bow of the boat, when
suddenly he plunged down the stairs and
over the side. The fireman quickly sig
naled to the captain to stop and back
water, but all trace of the unfortunate
man was lost, and the Metlako proceeded
on her way. When she met the Tahoma,
which came down from The Dalles yester
day, news of the accident was conveyed
to that boat-and brought to Portland. "
Gearin's tamlly live at Hubbard, Or.,
and a sister llyes at Kelso. Another sis
ter Is reported as living in Portland, but
she could not be located last evening. He
was 38 years of age, and had been In the
boat business for the past 15 years. He
was one of the charter members of the
River Steamer Employes' Association, and
was very well known by all the steamer
people, both on the Willamette and Co
lumbia. FEW ENTITLED TO PENSION

Pope Will Make More Cardinals.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 27. Word has
reached here from Rome that the next
consistory probably will be held at the
end of February, when the pope will cele
brate the attainment of the 25th year of
his pontificate. The occasion, according
to the best information, will mark tho
creation of eight or ten cardinals, all of
whom,. It Is understood, will be Italian,
save one. The exception, it Is said, Is a
German prelate, possibly the head of the
