WANT THE LUMBER
Timber of Central Oregon
Desired for Freight,
RAILROAD MAY 60 VIA SAHflAM
Extcnislon of Corvallls & Eastern
Would Offer Short Route to Main
Line of O. R, & N. Willing to
Make Traclca&e Agreement.
Now that the Columbia River & North
ern is In shape to bring into Portland
the trade of a large and rapidly growing
section of the Columbia Valley,
there will be a revival of the Interest In
the proposed road to Central Oregon.
The Columbia Southern, through the fact
that It will have with the completion of
the portage railroad an Independent route
into Portland, has a strong point In its
favor, but since the recently printed
views of Mr- Nash and Mr. Hammond on
Central Oregon trade and transportation,
1 number of people are Inclined to favor
rolng into the new country by way of
the Santiam pass. The representatives of
Mr- Harriman have stated that they re
garded the timber resources of Central
Oregon of greater value fom a railroad
standpoint than anything else In that
part of the state. A market for practi
cally all of this timber must be found In
the East, and the objection raised by the
Harriman people to taking It out over a
proposed extension of the Columbia
Southern is that it would be a long,
roundabout haul out to Biggs and thence
east over the O. R. '& N. They claim
that If the timber belt of the Deschutes is
tapped by a railroad it should be a line
which would make the shortest possible
haul from Central Oregon to the Eastern
An extension of the Corvallls & Eastern
railroad from Its present terminus across
the state,to Ontario would offer this short
route tothe main line of the O. R. &
N., and would land this lumber at On
tario with a haul of at least 200 miles less
than would be necessary in taking ft out
by way of Biggs. The Corvallls & East
ern is already completed to the edge of
the Warm Springs Agency country, which
promises to be a romarkably productive
wheat region, and surveys made on easy
grades extend clear across the state to
The cost of the line from the present
terminus of the Corvallls & Eastern to
the Deschutes would be but little greater
than that of the proposed extension of
the Columbia Southern, and when the
Deschutes Is reached a sufficiently al
luring field ahead would be disclosed to
warrant the extension of the road out
through the Harney and Malheur coun
try. Mr. Hammond is on record as saying
that he will make trackage agreements
with any company that will connect with
the Corvallls & Eastern, or he will sell
that road outright The wonderful tim
ber resources which already make a big
traffic and have built up the thriving
settlements at Mill City, Halstead, Berry,
Detroit and Idanha, insure nearly as
good a revenue for the road already com
pleted as Is enjoyed by the Columbia
Southern in its present shape. The Des
chutes Echo is authority for the state
ment that the Corvallls & Eastern route is
more favored by the timber Interests In
the Deschutes than the Columbia South
ern. Under date of July 11 that paper
printed the following:
On the 23th day of this month a newly
formed organization of Minnesota, "Wisconsin
and Mich I gran lumbermen, owners of timber In
this vicinity, will meet In the city or Chi
cago for the purpose of pending a committee
to confer with Harriman, when he returns from
Europe in th latter part of August, on the
question of an Eastern connection for market
ing the timber of this region. The purpose
of the meeting is also to arrange for Mr. Har
rlman's benefit a showing of the yearly amount
of freightage that the organisation could give
a railroad and also find out whether he is
desirous of owning and controlling the tapping
road or what terms he would make. The Cor
vallls & Eastern route has so far been the
only route under the consideration of this or
ganization. IVe are in receipt of a letter from
the secretary of the organization asking for
detailed information as to the amount of sup
port the irrigation projects in this region would
give a railroad, ajpo for Information as to the
progress In irrigation work. This looks like
The construction of this road across the
Etate fom west to east, while it might
have the effect of heading off the con
struction of the Columbia Southern ex
tension as far south as the timber belt,
would only temporarily keep It out of the
wheat region of the Haystack and Agency
Plains country. The Columbia Southern
has a downhill haul to tidewater, and in
connection with the portage road could
probably land wheat at Portland cheaper
than any other road that goes into Cen
tral Oregon. The Northern Pacific Rail
road will be "just across the river" from
Biggs within a short time, and if Its
characteristic aggressiveness is still in
evidence it may in due season be hauling
yellow pine lumber out of Central Ore
gon from south to north, while the Cor
vallls & Eastern Is In similar -business
with a west to east haul.
ARCHBISHOP IN DAWSON
Most Rev. Alexander Christie Warm
ly Welcomed In the North.
The visit of Archbishop Alexander
Christie. D. D., to Dawson, is described
os follows In the Dawson Dally News of
"The Most Reverend Alexander Christie,
D. D., archbishop of the Catholic church,
with headquarters at Portland, Or., who
arrived on the Selkirk, will remain in
Dawson until the first steamer leaves for
the Lower Yukon.
"Archbishop Chrjstle is known as the
archbishop of Oregon City, the name be

State of Oregon- His "province' Includes
the States of Oregon, Idahoy. Montana and
Washington, and the district of Alaska.
For many years he was affiliated with the
St. Paul archdiocese aa rector of St.
Stephen's Church at Minneapolis. June 29,
189S, he was consecrated bishop of Vic
toria, Vancouver Island, and April 11, 189
promoted to the archleplscopal see of

Christie, he says. Is merely for sight see

north as Nome.
" 'My time Is limited.' says the arch
blahop, 'and I may have to turn back
eooner than I desire. 1 Intend, if my time
is sufficient, to go to St. Michael and
Nome. I shall leave for the Lower Yukon

"'It Is a. pleasant surprise to me to find
Dawson such a well-governed and orderly
city. I was on the streets yesterday, and
saw no rowdyism nor drunkenness.
" "I am delighted with the North. The
scenery is marvelous. I also am pleased
with the people I have met In my travels
in the North. We spent last Sunday at
Skagway and I was delighted with the
people there. I did not have an oppor

made several trips to the Lower Yukon.
His headquarters are in Juneau.
" 'Father Jacquet, who lost his mind at
Nome last Fall and was taken outside .for
treatment has recovered his sanity but Is
not in as good health as he should be. He
probably will be fully recovered within a
short time. He is in Southern California.
I think the Northern climate must have
had much to do with his unfortunate ex
perience last FalL He has suffered from
rheumatism and that may have aggra

"The archbishop is a man of exception
ally large physical stature. He. is tall
and commanding and has in his appear

archbishop is a man beyond middle life,
but is buoyant of step. His hair is slightly

VISIT NATIONAL PARK.
Deputy Count? Assessor Maxwell Re
turns From Vacation Trip.
After a two weeks vacation spent amid
the wonders and the wonderful scenery at
the Yellowstone National Park, Deputy
County Assessor L. H. Maxwell returned
to his labors yesterday. He Is now more
than convinced that the United States Is
the greatest Nation on earth, and has the
largest, most magnificent and wonderful
PROPOSED. ROUTE OF EXTENSION
park in the world. He was accompanied
by his mother and they made the tour of
the park In company with a German
Count, a Spanish professor of chemistry
from a university at Barcelona, and a
pair of globe trotters, one from New York
and the other from London, all of whom
have been practically all over the world,
and all of whom confessed that they had
nowhere seen such wonders of nature or
such grandeur of scenery as that In the
Yellowstone Park. They took a coach
for the trip through the park over four
steel bridges anfl splendid roads and found
accommodations at first-class hotels, the
coach stopping for them whenever they
decided to tarry over night.
In addition to the spouting geysers, the
wonderful paint pots and majestic scen
ery, the wild animals In the park proved
a great attraction. There are 3000 elk
in the park, so tame that they scarcely
notice travelers, and herds of uer. The
borders of the park, 00 miles square, are
guaded by squads of soldiers stationed at
many points, who patrol the boundary
lines to prevent people from running
herds of deer and elk across the line to
where they can shoot them outside.
There aro many bears In tho park, and
the waste and garbage from the various
hotels Is carried and dumped in places
where the bears come down to clean It
up, which they do In fine style, licking the
empty tin cans clean. Parties of guests
staying at the hotels go out at lusk to see
the bears come down out of the hills to
feed. One evening, while several old
black bears and cubs were eating, some
one made a noise which startleti the
bears, who do not get so tame aa the elk,
and they started off on a run, while the
guests also made a break for the hotel at
top speed. Another evening a party had
waited for the bears for some time and
presently a huge grizzly came down on a
run and some of tho crowd ran for the
hotel while others climbed trees. The
"chef" of one of the hotels, while wating
to see the bears one evening, was startleu
by the "woof, woof of a bear, which
came snorting out of the brush, and he
climbed a tree Ull he could go no higher
and remained there till the bear went
away. He was more scared than ever
when told that bears could climb trees
faster than he could.
In some of the streams fishing Is al
lowed and tho trout are so plentijpl that
as many are caught at a cast as there are
hooks on the line.

GLAD HAND FOR ANYBODY
ADVISES THAT PASSENGER AGENTS
Jay Adamn, President of Association,
Gives Oat IntervieTrs With
Jay Adams, Pacific Coast passenger
agent of the Nickel Plate, Is distributing
the ISM meeting of the American Associa
tion of Traveling Passenger Agents with
a lavish neas that suggests the Idea that
he controls the meeting. A few days ago
he hurried Into Portland from San Fran
cisco and gave forth a written Interview
advocating the cause of thl3 city. He
rushed off from Portland to Puget Sound,
and found his way into the Seattle pa
pers with the declaration that there was
no place like Seattle for the meeting, and
that city should have It if it hustled.
Portland railroad men are expecting a
similar promise to develop at Tacoma and
other Northwest points.
The only significance to Mr. Adams rec
ommendations is that he is president of
the Pacific Coast Association of Traffic
Agents. He has given out his Interviews
OF CORVALLIS & EASTERN RAILROAD THROUGH CENTRAL OREGON.
as such an officer, and they are presumed
to carry some weight.
The Pacific, Coast Association of Traffic
Agents Indorsed the plan of bringing the
National Association to Portland In 1905,
at the February meeting held at Ash
land. The minutes of that meeting show
M. J. Roche, Portland representaUve of
the Rio Grande, proposed the plan, and
It was adopted. Since that time It has
developed that St. Louis will not want
the passenger agents' meeting in 1904, and
the Portland campaign was changed to
bring the traveling passenger agents here
As president of tho Coast organization,
Portland traffic men expected Mr. Adams
to support the action of the Coast xmeet
ing. There has never been any official
action that would Indicate any intention
on the part of the traffic men to abandon
their fight, and Mr. Adams' representa
tions at Seattle are regarded in an un
An offer of assistance in the Portland
fight came a few days ago from the presi
dent of the National association, and
there Is no question but that the Coast
delegates to that meeting will be unani
mously in favor of this city if Mr. Adams
does not interfere too much. Here is the
way he talked In Seattle:
"There Is no reason why Seattle should
not be selected. It Is the most ' appro
priate place, and Its hospitalities are well
known to railroad men throughout the
country. We need the co-operaUon, how
ever, of every railroad official and every
business man In' this vicinity, and if we
can go to New Orleans with a third of
the delegates pledged for Seattle, we
ought to win without difficulty.
"The very fact that so many Important
lines have their terminals here is in Itself
a strong argument for us, and I think
that if some earnest pioneer effort is
made to this end, together with the added
Influence of the municipal authorities and
representative business men, Seattle will
be able to entertain a conference In 1904
that will greatly Increase Its prestige as
a city of Industrial and commercial ac
tivity and enterprise."
The following is an illustration of the
way Mr. Adams urged the Portland peo
ple to go forth and work for the National
meeting. In this Interview he pledged
the support of the Pacific Coast organiza
tion. Mr. Adams said here:
"No doubt the people of the Northwest,
and particularly the citizens of Portland,
are anxious to make a success of the
Lewis and Clark Exposition. In my esti
mation, one of the best means by which
this might be accomplished Is to have
your people assist the Pacific Coast As
sociation of Traffic Agents in bringing to
Portland In 1904 the 32d annual convention

Northern Pacific Sells Bonds at Good
Price for Extension.
NEW YORK, July 20. (Special.) The
listing of the usual annual allowance of
$1,500,000 Northern Pacific prior Hen 4s
indicates that the Northern Pacific has
sold that amount of these bonds to
finance tho Improvements and purchases
of the year as allowed under the terms
of the mortgage of 1S93. The bonds were
apparently sold at 100 and lOOtf.
This means that the Northern Pacific
has found no need to Issue notes to
finance its Improvements for the year,
as has been the case In two notable In
stances. It would also appear that the
sale of these bonds has been accom
plished without seriously Injuring the
standing or prestige of the prior Hen Is
sue, the price at latest quotations being
lOOU- The total authorized issue of these
bonds is $120,000,000, cf which $25,000,000
was reserved to pay for Improvements,
to pay for Unes purchased, or to take up
the securities of roads purchased, the to
tal not to exceed $1,500,000 a year. Of
this $25,000,000 the road still holds unsold
$16,000,000, after provision Is made for the
expenses of 1903.
Mr. Hill gives as the chief reason for
the Issue of notes In preference to bonds
at the present time the fact that by the
establishment of a price for bonds In the
present market the standing of such
bonds may be permanently Impaired.
That this Is not the case where a rail
road is provided with a well-established
issue, with the privilege of selling at
discretion, seems to be proved by the ex
perience of the Northern Pacific in the
present Instance. The whole expense of
the Improvements detailed will not be met
by this charge to capital account, the re
mainder being charged to current earn
ings. The Improvements and purchases to be
financed by this Issue of $1,500,000 include
the following items:
Washburn branch, Iron River to Wash
burn, Wis., 34 miles, opened in Septem
Bellingham Bay &. Eastern, Wicker
sham, Wash., to Falrhaven, 23 miles.

SAN FRANCISCO, July 2a Passenger
Traffic Manager E. O. McCormlck, of
the Southern Pacific Company, returned
last night from Chicago, where he has
been for several weeks, attending a meet
ing of the Transcontinental Passenger
Association. The latter made a rato of
one fare xor the round trip for -the Amer
ican Bankers' Association, which Is to
hold Its annual convention In this city
'next October. It has about 7000 members,
and about half of them are expected to
come to California,
The local bankers are to raise among
themselves $35,000 to pay for helr enter
tainment. A rate of $50 for the round trip
from Chicago has been decided upon for
the triennial conclave of the Knights
Templar in San Francisco in September,,
1904. McCormlck thought It probable that
a similar rule would be for the convention
of the National Livestock Association in
Portland, Or., and for the Trans-Mlssls-sppi
Commercial Congress, at Seattle.

WHY WEATHER WAS-WARM
HUMIDITY RESPONSIBLE FOR MUCH,
OF YESTERDAY'S DISCOMFORT.
Thermometer Re gist era Ol Degrees
and Although It Has Been Rotter
Before, Heat Was Oppressive.
Mr. Beals, the weather man, say3 that
it was hot yesterday because of the hu
midity. That's a word that sounds nice,
and cool, but if he says that the humid
ity is responsible, it must be so. Mr.
Beals sat In his shady retreat In the Fed
eral building and saw the thermometer go
up to.91 deg. without a qualm. Meanwhile
the man on the street and the woman over
the kitchen stove thought It was 101 deg.
or even 1001.
With the "humidity at 36 the atmosphere
was like a steam bath. On June 6, when
the mercury went away up to 97 deg.,
the humidity register stood at 19 points.
Therefore the heat on that day was not
felt half so much as yesterday, though the
actual temperature was 6 deg. higher. So
the collars wilted and the dinners didn't
taste very good.
In Portland the heat is usually greatest
about 2 o'clock, but yesterday was an ex
ception. Not until 10 o'clock did the ther
mometer get above 70 deg. Then from 72
at 10 o'clock It worked away slowly xmtll
at noon tho mercury stood at 78 deg. This
wasn't hot enough to hurt, but every one
began to complain of the heat. While
every one else was resting at noontime,
the sun and Mr. Beals got in their best
work, and when unfortunate mankind
went to Its labors again at 1 o'clock the
thermometer registered 83 deg.
Few outside the Weather Bureau had
any knowledge of the conditions of the
humidity with which to console them
selves. They said It was hot, and many
added some adjectives just to cool them
selves by speaking of warm places. The
mercury climbed ahead. At 2 o'clock It
stood at S3 deg., at 3 it was up to the SS
hole. It hit the highest mark at 5 o'clock,
when 91 deg. was reached. Then for an
hour the town sweated big drops. All this
time the air was full of mol3ture, and
every tiny drop was steaming before It hit
the pavement. Not until after 6 o'clock
did the mercury drop below 90 deg. Then
the electric fans and whlrly-whirly sprink

TWO LABOR FACTIONS.
American Union Begins Active Cam
paign in Portland.
The American Labor Union, having In
duced one Portland union to break away
from the fold of the American Federation
of Labor, is about to begin an active cam
paign with the" ultimate view of gather
ing all the malcontents In the local camp.
Daniel McDonald, of Butte, Mont., the
president of the American Labor Union, Is
in the city 'looking over the situation and
instructing his lieutenants. His arrival
has been kept a secret by the members
of his order.
Thus far the Painters' Union has been
the only organization to Join tho Ameri
can Labor Union. Other unions of the
Building Trades Council are expected to
follow the lead of the painters and wlth
I draw from the Federated Trades Council,
the central bociy of the federation In
Portland. T. F. Latimer, the state or
ganizer of the American Labor Union,
has been In the city for several months
quietly talking "in the interests of his
order. Though he did not conceal his
purpose, the members of the Federation
unions welcomed him at meetings and re
peatedly asked him to address them. Now
the result of this brotherly love scheme
The American Labor Union Is especially
strong In the Rocky Mountain States,
where it originated with the Western
FedratIon of Miners. It has rapidly
spread over Wyoming, Colorado and Mon
tana, and now has a strong following in
Western Washington. It was predicted
months ago that an attempt would be
made to enter the Portland field, but Mr.
Latimer stoutly denied this up to the last.
When he was on an organizing tour in
Southern Oregon his friend? in Portland
declared no effort would be made to work
The organization which Is headed by
McDonald openly announces Its intention
of entering Into politics at every oppor
tunity. Its advocates speak .of It as
formed of advanced unions instead of the
trade unions of the American Federation
of Labor. Tho United Brotherhood of
Railway Employes, well, represented In
this city. Is affiliated with it. Now Mc
Donald and Latimer will try to Induce
other unions to join their ranks.
