"Whatsoever ye would that men- should
do to you, do you even so to them," said
the Colonel at the Portland Hotel 'yesteri
day. "Thats old doctrine. It's good doci
trine, too. It means equal rights to all,
union or nonunion, special privileges to
none. It means 'full pay for a's
labor, not forMhe man but for what he
can do.
"The doctrine means peace to Industry,

"On Labor day" In Chicago a man drove
his family in his own wagon to see the
parade. A gang of union teamsters set
upon him because he could show no union
card. The rowdies tumbled his 'family
Into the street, made his horses run away,
wrecked his wagon and all but beat him
to death. "Was that justice? "Was It fair
play? I could cite hundreds of such out
rages." He Ponght for the Union.
Colonel Kahlo will spend a week or more
In Portland encouraging local manufactur
ers to Join the National Association. Like
a Kentucky Colonel he looks, with his up
right carriage, his silver mustaches and
his military air. But he's not from the
blue-grass state. Instead, he halls from
Born In Prussia, he carries the Teutonic
cast of countenance. Kindly blue eyes
look out irom beneath eyebrows which are
turning gray to match the whiteness of
his hair. The Colonel would seem to be
near the three-score milestone of life's
journey. Well preserved and sprightly,
he still finds pleasure in the avocations
'from which many men find themselves
barred at hlsyears.
The Colonel Is Assistant Adjutant-General
of the Indiana militia and is an ex
member of the Indiana Senate, the only
Republican that has ever been sent to
that body from Logansport, on the banks
of the Wabash. At one time he was
president of the Logansport Manufactur
ing Company, manufacturers of vehicle
"Though a native of Prussia," he re
marked, "I am a thorough American. I
fought for the Union in the Civil War and
stayed in the fight from the beginning to
the end. See this button?" and the
Colonel exhibited the emblem of the Loyal
Personal Liberty Above Unions.
"I am a loyal American. I stand for fair
play. I hold the obligation qf citizenship
higher than any obligation 6,f unionism.
I regard personal liberty as the most
sacred heritage of any citizen. '
By that heritage he is free to work for
whomsoever he pleases, at whatever
wages he can get without being beaten,
maimed, killed or ostracised by any body
of fellow-men who group themselves into
a union, misname themselves Americans
and make a farce of American justice and
fair play.
"I wish to get 12 or 15 new members in
your city. The foremost manufacturers
ore the ones whom I desire to join. I do
not expect to accomplish much this week.
You see, tomorrow Is a half-holiday, and
I shan't find many men at their places

leading manufacturers, among them Mr.

Mr. Ball, of the Willamette Iron &. Steel

He Brands n Falsehood.
Colonel Kahlo brands as entirely false
the dispatch which was sent yesterday
from San Francisco and which said he
had collected $50 from each of 137 new
members. "It's all a lie," he declared
vigorously. "Not 137 companies Joined the
association in San Francisco, but 45. Here
is the actual list," and the Colonel pro
duced the names from his inside pocket
uhey were:

fully. "Wish I did. I'd be making a pile
of money. See this little'hook? It con

said, 'that your association is growing. I

member of the union. I do so because I
earn 25 cents more.'
"I was on a street-car In Cincinnati.

cause, even in the unions, than many peo
ple "know. And it's only a few months
since our cause was launched. Parry'?,
the man who did it. He's the head of the
new movement."
Parry the Employers' Lender.
The Colonel described Parry as an "ex
traordinary man in mental vigor, though
not in outward appearance"; of average
stature, blunt in speech and unreserved,
having few arts of diplomacy; kind-hearted,
a good father, and considerate of his
employes. As president of the Parry Man
ufacturing Company he heads one of the
biggest vehicle factories in the world.
"The unions have never organized
among Parry's employes," said' the Colo
nel, "and they won't. PaVry will shut
down the factory If the unions get In. "Oh,
he means what he says. Organizers of
industry all over the United States ore
coming to his views. Already wo hear of
a great combination of builders to stop
work if unions won't stop their demands.
It's coming to a point where ' employers
will sit down on their capital if they can
not use It as they wish."
Organized Like Unions.
"Labor unions are organized Into state.
National and international bodies," went
on the Colonel. "But employers have no
such organization. However, the relation
will be more evened up. Our organization
will not be Just like that of employes, but
It will be similar. Its purposes will be to
protect individual liberty, to -prevent law
lessness and to resist unreasonable exac
tions of labor. Here's our decalogue:
'Declaration, of Principles.
Fair dealing is the fundamental and basic
principle on which relations between em
ployes and employers should rest. .
The National Association of Manutap
turers is not opposed to organizations of la
bor as such, but It Is unalterably opposed to
boycotts, blacklists 'and other Illegal acts of
Interference -with the personal liberty o
employer or employe.
No person should be refused employment
or In any way discriminated against on ac
count of membership or non-membership In
any labor organization, and there: should be
no discrimination against or Interference
with any employe who is not a member of a
labor organization by members of such or
ganizations. With due regard to contracts. It 13 the
right of the employe to leave his employ
ment whenever he sees fit, and It Is tho
right of the employer to discharge any em
ploye flien he sees flL.
Employers must be free tp' employ - tlieir
work people at wages mutuailyjsatlsiactbry,
without Interference or dictation on tho
part of Individuals or organizations not. di
rectly parties to such contracts.
Employers must be unmolested and un
hampered In the management of their busi
ness, in determining the amount .and qual
ity of their product, and In the use of any
methods or systems of pay "which -aro Just
and equitable. -
In the Interest of employes and employers
of the country, no ' limitation' should he
placed upon the opportunities of any person
to learn any trade to "which he or Bho may
be adapted.
Tho National Association, of; Manufac
turers disapproves absolutely of strikes and
lockouts, and favors an equitable adjust
ment of all differences between employers
and employes by any amicable method- that
will preserve tho rights of both parties.
The National Association of Manufac
turers pledges itself to oppose -any. and. all
legislation not in accord with the foregoing
"Will Admit All. Employ era.
"These principles are fair. No good man
can deny them. Many employers : have
framed them and hung them on the wall.
Many have also embodied them In their
contracts with unions."
Colonel Kahlo said that Mr. Parry. was
sending his children to Europe, whether
to-be safe from assault -nr-kldhaplnir by
unions he did not knotv. "There's W
doubt," he remarked, "that unions woiiid
find pleasure In the annihilation of him
and his family." , '
Today the oxecutlve committee of the
association will meet at New York- to
consider amending -the constitution so that
all employers may become members.
"Membership Is now limited to manufac
turers," said the Colonel. "But there are
thousands of other employers, such as
bankers and merchants, who would be'
glad to come into the organization.
"That oath of 'the Typographical Union
a good citizen cannot take. It- puts- the
union first, above all other organizations,
social, political or religious. That's down-i.
right treason to tho state. But President
Roosevelt is a. good citizen. Do you re
member the Miller case In the National
Printing Office? The President says he
won't allow the laws of any union to
override the laws of ftie United States,
which It Is his sworn duty to enforce.
"How do I pronounce my name? No, not
'Kaylo,' but 'Kawlo,' It's German, you
know," and the Colonel went to dinner.
Root, Lodge nnd Turner Question
Canada in Aluska'Bouiwlnry Case.
LONDON, Sept. IS. When the Alaskan
Boundary Commission resumed its ses
sions today, Attorney-General Flnlay was
subjected by War Secretary Root and Sen
ators Turner and Lodge, to a fire of ques
tions In connection with his attempt to
show that the boundary should run from
the head of the Portland Canal directly
westward to tho point where the moun
tains, claimed by the Canadians as the
boundary, intersect the 56th parallel of
latitude. The contention of the United
States is that tho boundary continues up
to Bear River "Valley from the head of
Portland Canal to tho 66th. parallel. In
this connection Mr. Root called the Attorney-General's
attention to the fact that
Vancouver referred to Marseley Pass as
the head of the canal, and asked If It was
not natural to suuDose that the signatories
of the treaty intended to follow the pass
of the 56th degree.
The AttorneGeneral replied that the
line under the treaty could not run far
ther than the water canal, and from that
point must seek the mountains at the 56th
Senator Lodge suggested that this would
mean that the line must cross the moun
tains to. reach those points described in
the Canadian case, which the Attorney
General evaded touching upon.
The Attorney-General passed during tho
afternoon to the discussion of the loca
tion o fthe line from the 56th parallel to
Mount St Ellas, asserting that If the
contention of the United States that the
boundary should go around the heads of
Inlets was admitted, then corresponding
ly, Canada should gain by the tribunal
deciding . that the line should follow ten
marine leagues from the shores of Penin
sulas. Judge J. M. Dickinson of American
counsel said the United States was con
tending only for the heads of Inlets and
not beyond, the Attorney-General hav
ing raised the point that the American
claim for tidewater as tho boundary
might "put the boundary far into the in
terior of Canada.
Santo Domingo Is "Warned, Against
Making Ports Free.
SANTO DOMINGoT Republic of Santo
Domingo, Sept. 18. United States Minis
ter Powell has sent a strong protest to
the Dominican government based on the
following grounds:
That the action of the Dominican gov
ernment in sending to Congress a project
for and being the neutrality of Domini
can waters and make certain ports free,
would not, in view of the fact "that Santo
Domingo is an independent state, be
accepted in a friendly spirit by tho
United States; that 'the United States
Government would not allow the estab
lishment of any coaling ports 'in Santo
Domingo or the cessation of any portion
of Santo Domingo territory to any Euro
pean power; that the United States will
not permit any nation to make exclusive
use of Dominican waters In time of peace,
much less in time of war. Nor could the
United States allow. any portion of Dom
inican territory to be classed as neutral
nor permit any portion of the country to"
conflict with the concession granted to
the Clyde Line, according to which all
.vessels arriving from foreign ports are
compelled to pay port duties, excepting
"the Clyde steamers. .

Until Supremo Court Decides, Asses
sors "Will Not Feel Safe in
Levying: Taxes for 1004.
A suit to have determined the question
whether a levy for taxes on the assess
ment for the year 1903 can be made in
January, 1904, was filed in the State Cir
cuit Court yesterday by Williams, Wood
& Linthlcum, attorneys for Maria L. "Flan
As has been previously stated in the col
umns of The Oregonlan, a tax law passed
at the last session of the Legislature takes
effect on January 1, 1904, providing that
tne tax levy shall be made In September.
The assessment for 1903, now in course of
completion In various counties throughout
the state Is being made under tho old law,
which provides that the tax levy shall
bo made In January next. Now the ques
tion is, as the new law takes effect on
January 1. 1904. and saVs the next tax
Revy shall be made the following Septem
ner, can tne levy on the assessment for
the year 19C3 be legally made In Janu
ary, 1904, after the new law providing for
a levy in September, 1904, Is In operation?
The various assessors in the state are
assessing property atva considerable ex
pense for clerk hire, etc, and It Is nec
essary to ascertain by a decision of the
Supreme Court If the work is to be of no
avail, and it Is also Important to know If
taxes can be collected for the year 1903,
otherwise from January until October,
1904, all the counties in the state will be
out of funds.
It wouldhot do to take the chances and
make the levy In January without first
having had a legal adjudication of the
question, because. If this were done, suits
might be instituted after the levy to en
Join the collection of the taxes. Conse
quently this suit Is brought now, and a
decision from the higher court can easily
bo secured before January next.
The defendants named are the members
of tho County Court, Assessor McDonell.
County Clerk Fields and County Auditor
Brandes. The complaint asks that tho
Assessor be enjoined from completing tho
assessment, and. the County Court from
making the levy next January. This raises
tho Issues. The complaint will propably
be demurred to and arguments then made
by counsel as to the application of tho
new law to the assessment for the year
Dastardly Attempt at Butte.
BUTTE, Mont, Sept 18. That six men
were not seriously injured or perhaps
killed, just outside the city limits last
night, was not the fault of some cowardly
persons who placed a quantity of cxdIo-
slves on the street railway 'track about
300 yards cast of the Northern Pacific
crossing, badly wrecking car No. 25.
which was onvits way In from Columbia
Gardens. Fortunately no one was in

Thero is a Chinaman In the custody of
the Federal authorities who will wish he
had assumed the - name of any other
Chinaman than Jin Fung by the time the
Government is through with him. He is
between "the horns of a dilemma and,
whichever horn he finally chooses to Im
pale himself on, he will be taken off It
to be transported to China. There are two
other Chinamen in about the same predic-.
ament and, despite the vigorous fight their
lawyers are -making, their chances of re
turning to the land of Tsl An are un
commonly bright
These are three of the Chinamen who
were arrested on their' return from one of
the Alaska canneries for Investigation of
their right to dwell In. the United States.
They, like many of their fellow-countrymen,
have discovered .a loophole. In the
exclusion law .through which they were
endeavoring to crawl when they were
caught It Is the custom, when an American-born
Chinaman returns from a visit
to his native land, to detain him until he
proves his rights as a native of hte United
States. He applies for a writ of habeas
corpus and then his friends and relatives
come up and swear on the bleeding head
of a decapitated chicken that he is Mell-can-born.
Then the United States Com
missioner discharges him and he Is free
to remain unless the decision should be
reversed on appeal. On paying tho re
quired fee, he can obtain a certified copy
of the .order for his discharge, which
proves his right to be In the country.
This is where tho loopholo In the law
was discovered. Any person, white or Chi
nese, can obtain a certified copy Of the
same record on paying the fee. Tho law
does not require a photograph of the
Chinaman In question to be attached to
tho copy of the record, so that any Mon
golian when challenged, can produce such
copy and say that he is tho man to
whom it refers. In the absence of any
evidence of his Identity, this statement
cannot be gainsaid.
Accordingly, when a contraband China
man arrives in this country, he Is provid
ed by hlsconfederates with a certified
copy .of theNdlscharge on writ of habeas
corpus of some other Chinaman and he
holds this document as evidence of his
legal resldonce in the United States.
The real Jin Fung was arrested as a
contraband, but was discharged by Judge
Bellinger on the ground that he was
merchant District Attorney John Hall
took an appeal to the United States Cir
cult Court of Appeals, which reversed tho
decision and ordered the deportation of
Jin Fung. But he could not be found and
is probably still a dweller In this land.
trusting to the order of discharge to avoid
deportation and Ignorant of the reversal
of the decree.
As the mandate of the Court of Appeals
does not appear on the record of the Dis
trlct Court, the order of discharge ap
peared to still hold good and thus the
bogus Jin Fung fell Into the trap. He ob
talned a certified copy of this record and
trusted to it to secure him Immunity from
deportation. That he is an Impostor Mr.
Hall is positive, for he remembers tho
real Jin Fung as a big man. with deep pock
marks on his face, while tho bogus Jin
Fung Is a small man of totally different
appearance. In order to fully dispose of
the Impostor, Mr. Hall has sent for
copy of tho mandate of tho Court of Ap
peals and meanwhile the case has been
continued by United States Commissioner
Sladen until next Friday.
When this document arrives, an unpleas-.
ant surprise will be sprung on the Im
personator. If ho still insists that he is
Jin Fung, he will have to take tha wor
thy's place on a steamer bound for China.
If he admits that he is not Jin Fung,
.then he will admit he is a contraband and
an order of deportation Is inevitable.
Whichever course he takes will take him
back to China.
Three other Chinamen were before Com
missioner Sladen yesterday on the charge
of being Illegally ln-tho United States, all
being In possession of certified copies of
orders of discharge glve'n to Wong Gee,
Wong Nang and Ah Ghee. Those who sail
under the first two of these names are In
as bad a predicament as the bogus Jin
Fung, for Assistant District Attorney
Edwin Mays produced as witnesses
against them the real Wong Gee and the
real Wong Nang, whose Interests are
Identical with those of the Government
If they do not establish their identity as
the men to whom the records of the court
refer, they will place their own legal
status In doubt Thus their Impersonators
are In a tight place. All the cases were
deferred till next Friday.

The real heroines of every dav are in our homes. Frequently, how
ever, it is a mistaken and useless heroism. .
Women seem to listen to every call of duty except the supremo 5
one that tells them to guard their health. How much harder the daily
tasks hecome when some derangement of-the female organs makes
every movement painful and keeps the nervous system unstrung?4
Irritability takes the place of happiness and amiability : and weakness
and suffering takes the place of health and strength. As long as they
can drag themselves around, women continue to work and perform
their household duties. They have been led to believe that suffering
is necessary because they are women. "What a mistake !
The use of Lydia E.PinlcJiani's Vegetable Compound will banish,
pain and restore happiness. Don't resort to strong stimulants or nar
cotics when this great strengthening,, healing remedy for women is
always within reach. S
If there is anything in your case about which you would like
special advice, write freely to Mrs. Pinkham. "No man will see
your leter. She can surely help you, for .no person in America
has such a wide experience in treating female ills as she has had.
She has helped hundreds of thousands of women hack to health.
Her address is Lynn, Mass., and her advice is free. Xouare very

"Deae Mbs. Phtkham: I wish to express to you the great "benefit I
nave derived from your advice and the use of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege
tableCompound. My trouble was female -weakness in its worst form and
I was in a very had condition. I could not perform my household duties, my
hack ached, I was extremely nervous, and I could not eat or sleep and the
hearing-down pains wore terrible. My husband spent hundreds of dollars
to get me well, and all the medicine that theioctors prescribed, failed to do me
any good ; I resorted to an operation which the physician said was necessary
to restore me to health, hut I suffered more after it than I did hefore ; I had
hemorrhages of the womb that nothing could seem to stop.
"I noticed one of your advertisements and wrote you for advice, I re
ceived your reply and carefully followed all instructions. I immediately
began to get stronger, and in two weeks was about the house. I took eight
bottles of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and continued
following your advice, and to-day I am a well woman. Your remedies and
help are a Godsend to suffering women, and I cannot find words to thank
you for what you have done for me." Mbs. Lottie V. Natlor, 1328 N. J.

Shipments for Jetty Will Increase
Next Week.
Next week tho Northwest Construction
Company will be delivering1 Jetty stone
from Bugby's. Already It has delivered
50,000 tons from Maygers. The quarry at
the latter place Is to be used only tem
porarily, until the Bugby quarry can' be
opened. By the first of next month the
shipments from Bugby's will amount to
at least 2000 tons a day. The contractors
havo given this assurance to the Govern
ment engineers. The deliveries will be In
creased later to 2500 or 3000 tons a day.
Tho contractors will be prepared to send
down more stono to Fort Stevens this
Winter than the engineers can handle.
During the past two or three weeks they
have been delivering about 1000 tons a
day, and on some days the shipments have
reached 1200 tons.
The Northwest Construction Company
has expended a big sum of money on the
Bugby quarry. It has had to equip Itself
with new machinery and to make a
switchback from the quarry to the Astoria
Railroad, nearly two miles lon. How tho
quarry Is going to turn out no expert can
predict with certainty, but enough stone Is
on the surface of the quarry for this sea
