SECOND HORSE SALE
Buyers From All Sides Tor
GOOD PRICES ARE RECEIVED
Portland's Place as Horse-Market of
the Northwest Fixed by Bidding
for All Grades From Rac
ing to Draft Stock.
Portland's second .annual auction sale
of blooded horses -is In progress at Irving
ton track. It opened yesterday morning
at 10 o'clock and will, continue until Thurs
day evening, there being about 300 fine
animals, ranging in class from fast track
horses to heavy draft stock. Among them
are fancy saddlers, roadsters, stallions,
brood mares and colts.
The sale is being conducted by J. L. Mc
Carthy & Son. the well-known horsemen
of this -city, who inaugurated the move
ment to make Portland the principal horse
market of the Northwest last year. The
first sale proved such a success that they
decided to repeat it this year, and from
the interest manifested yesterday it seems
certain to be a permanent annual event.
Prominent horsemen are in attendance
from all over the Northwest, and yester
day's bidding was spirited. "While the
prices paid 'averaged well, there were
many bargains, and some very fine ani
mals were bought much cheaper than
they could have been secured at private
sale. The figures paid for the aristocratic
horseflesh ranged from $50 for an untried
yearling to $500, -the price which N. K.
"West paid for Hallie Hinges, a 4-year-old
ay mare with a record of 2:1S4, consid
ered one of the best racing prospects in
The sale was conducted in the betting
shed, and, in spite of the inclement weath
er of the forenoon, a large crowd was
present all day. The auctioneers were J.
I McCarthy and T. Tonner, of Seattle,
and the sale was admirably conducted by
them. A large number of local horse
fanciers were present, but the majority of
the buyers were out-of-town men. ,
Today's offerings are probably the best
of the many horses consigned for sale,
although a number of good ones will be
reserved until Thursday.
Among the prominent visiting horsemen
who are bidders at the sale are; .S, "White,

LOSER GETS BIG END OF PURSE
"Young Corbett" Guaranteed Sulll
van $2500 Out of Fight.
SAN FRANCISCO. March L Perhaps
the most interesting detail of the after
math of the Corbett-Sulllvan fight at Me
chanlcs' Pavilion last night, when Dave
Sullivan was beaten by the champion, is
the fact that, though defeated, Dave will
get more money than Corbett.
By 'an arrangement with the club the
fighters were to get 65 per cent of the
receipts. Of this Sullivan was guaranteed
$2500, win or lose. There was only $5500
In the house, and when Sullivan's $2500 had
been subtracted from the 65 per cent of
this there was only $1000 left for the win
ner. Corbett had confidently expected that
the ,fight would draw an $SO0O or $10,000
house. Sports agree that Sullivan was

WELL-KNOWN AGENT OF NATIONAL MANUFACTURERS' ASSOCIATION.
KNOXVILLE. Tenn., March 1. Colonel Charles Kahlo, of Indianapolis, rep
resentative of the National Association- of Manufacturer?, headed by D. M.
Parry, killed himself at a local hotel today. He was in tho United States Con
sular service under President Harrison, and has held positions of trust in In
diana. No reason is assigned for the act.
(Colonel Kahlo Is well known in Portland, having visited the city last summer-In
the Interests of th! National Manufacturers' Associayon. HIs mission
was to interest Portland manufacturers and business men"' in the organiza
tion whose primary object is to resist the growing power of the labor,
unions. He made many friends and Impressed them as a genial man of wide
ment of every Godlike attribute In every
human being." He admitted that simi
lar claims were made for Christianity In
general, but failed to discover the fruits
of It, dwelling particularly on the lack of
unity. Mormonlsm. had gathered its vo
taries from every nation and sect without
the influence of an educated ministry, not
by the arguments or eloquence of the
preachers, but by "the testimony of con
viction brought to their own souls by the
spirit of divine truth.'' He quoted Joseph
Smith as saying In reply to one who asked
him how he governed so many people:
"I do not govern them; I teach them
true principles and they govern them
selves." By this spirit of unity, without being
bound by ironclad rules, the Mormons had
achieved great results against many ob
stacles and bitter opposition. He denied
that they were priest-ridden and had no
dissension in the election of church offi
cers, and quoted the "Book of Doctrines
and Covenants," as requiring that all
things be done by common consent in
the church, that no person be ordained to
any office without the vote of the church,
that "no power or Influence ought to be
maintained by virtue of the priesthood,
but by long suffering," etc He continued:
Indeed, there Is no power nor authority in
the church to place a man in office it the peo
ple, by majority vote, reject him. In several
instances in the days of our respected brother.
President Brigham Young, when he presented
the names of men of high position, they were
turned down by the vote of the people. Nor
did the president seek to force his wishes, for
he knew the laws of the church governed
such matters, and must obey them with the
same humility required of the humblest mem
ber. The Gospel of Christ is the "perfect law
of liberty." and that freedom finds its. fullest
expression in the workings of what is called
the Mormon Church.
Mr. Cowley went on to claim the ful
fillment of the prophecies of Joseph
Smith -in the rise of spiritualism, in the
general acceptance of belief in the re
demption after death of those who died
without a knowledge of the gospel in this
life, In the abrogation of the doctrine of
infant damnation, in the increased favor
with which the law of tithing Is regarded
by the churches. He predicted that the
Ideal condition depicted in Bellamy's
"Looking, Backward," where there shall
be such an equality among men that there
shall be no rich and no poor, will yet be
realized. He said that this doctrine was
taught and practiced by the Mormons, and
that Bellamy drew many of his ideas from
the writings of Joseph Smith. He said:
"Each event affecting the welfare of na
tions, you will find to be a means in the
hands of God to more completely rivet the
truth of Mormonlsm on the souls of men,
and to point out the fact that Joseph
Smith was a prophet of God."
On the subject of tho attempt to ex
clude Senator Reld Smoot from the Sen
ate, he said:
Senators and politics are no part of our re
ligious' cervices, and as a Senator Mr. "Smoot
does not represent any church nor any one
clan of people. He was elected by a Re
publican Legislature consisting of Mormons
and non-Mormons, and no church influence
was used to elect him. We do not use church.
Influence in politics. We are Republicans
and Democrats, and aa citizens of the United
States have a right to take part in the elec
tions' of our country. Mr. Smoot Is & prac
tical, wide-awake, business man a promoter
of the mining, manufacturing, agricultural
and stockralslng Industries of our state. Some
of his most ardent admirers and supporters
in Utah are Gentiles, and as a Senator he
represents them as much as he does the Mor
mons. He represents them all alike. The
church has no concern about the retention of
bis seat In the Senate, it had nothing ta do
with his election. It the Senate casta him
out. It will not retard the progress of thjj
church in the least degree. The church depends
upon God to promote her Interests upon the
earth, and not upon a United States Senator.
W low cur cou&to; aa& U tlartam tolUa-

WATSON STDjL WILL NOT TELE
Court Decides to Question Him No
More in Famous Porter' Failure.
CHICAGO. March 1. Examination of
James S. Watson in connection with his
knowledge -of the businessaffairs of the
Porter Brothers Company, the bankrupt
fruit and produce concern, was abandoned
today by Attorney Bach, reprenentative of
New York creditors, during the. bearing
at the case before Referee in Bankruptcy
Wean. Mr. Watson, who was president
of the fruit company before it became
bankrupt, has been called as a witness
several times since the hearing began.
When Watson. was called to- testify; today,
he appeared to be Ignorant, of jthS'bVslness
transactions of the-"defunct company, as
on former occasions, and It was decided it
would be Useless to question him further.
"On previous occasions you have pfead
ed that if you werejjiven time to inspect
your books you could give intelligent an-
KAHLO ENDS HIS LIFE
swers to my questions," said Attorney
Bach. "Do you think you could answer
the questions today if this examination Is
"I don't know." replied Mr. Watson.
Attorney Bach then asked Referee Wean
if he believed any more information could
be obtained If the witness be allowed fur
ther time," and the court gave it as his
opinion, but not as an official suggestion,
that the examination of Mr. Watson might
as well end now as at any future time.
Mr. Watson was then excused from fur
ther examination by Attorney Bach.
Nelson R. Doe, of New York, who was a
partner with Porter Bros, until 1S99. was
the next witness called. Mr. Doe said he
did not know what liabilities the firm had
when ho retired from It, but it was tho
custom of the company to pay off all debts
as fast as they accumulated.
Examination of several other witnesses
in the case, which Involves more than
$1,000,000.' will be resumed tomorrow.
, Steel Syndicate Finally Formed.
BERLIN, March L After long and
tedious negotiations, the German steel
syndicate has finally been organized. The
original plan was for a syndicate of the
entire German steel industry, and was
first set in motion at Frankfort In the
Summer of 1902, but after long haggling
this project was. found to be impossible.
Negotiations were then begun and now
have been concluded among 26 of the
largest concerns in tho country. The
smaller manufacturers, were excluded.

from New York on April 15 ior Sari
Francisco -and Portland, and will make
the trip in about SO days. She is now a
month out from San Diego for the AtT
lantic coast. It is hoped that this will
be only ari opening and that the service
will become permanent. A few years
ago, vast quantities of merchandise were
brought direct tor Portland from . New
York by American sailing vessels, ono
arriving every month. Of late these
goods .have been- shipped out to San
Francisco and there transferred to the
O. R. & N. steamers and other coasters,
and brought to this city. A through
line will offer many, advantages and as
the business has -reached great propor
tions, it is believed the- arrival of Amer-
Uican-Hawalian steamers will be a regular
thing in the future.
The. fleet operated by the company be
tween the two seaboards numbers seven
vessels, the Nebraskan, Californian, Ari
zonan, Oregonlan, American and Hawa
iian. The Nebraskan and Nevadan are
sister ships and are oil burners.
DIX SAILS FROM ASTORIA.
Nothing More Hyard From Schooner
ASTORIA. March 1. (Special:) The
succession of gales that has been raging
off. tho." coast during the past 12 days'. has,
ceased and today for the first time since
February 18. the bar was smooth. This
morning the wind shifted to the west
and then to the northwest, where it now
remains, an Indication of pleasant
weather. During the day the harbor was
cleared of all the outward bound vessels
that were ready for sea, Including the
transport DIx. Only three vessels crossed
In. They were the steamers Oregon and
Elmore and the schooner Laura Madscn.
The latter was 13 days from San Fran
cisco and had been driven to the north
ward by the gales. During the trip a
portion of her head gear was carried
away, but no great damage was done.
Nothing has been heard Xrom the
schooner William F. Garms since she
was off the mouth of the river several
days ago, but among shipping men who
are familiar with the vessel, no alarm is
felt for her safety. She has been driven
north by the gale and. belnsan unusually
'poor sailer, has been unable to work
back. The tug people expect "she will
show up at the bar tomorrow If the north
west wind continues.
BUFORD LEAVES FOR THE SOUTH
Takes a Small Quantity of Lumber
From This City.
The Army transport Buford, bound for
San Francisco, . left down the river at
32:30 yesterday afternoon in charge of
Pilot Paterson. She carried as cargo
only about 560,000 feet of lumber.- No ma
rines were taken, contrary fo the first
expectations. It la probable she will re
ceive troops! at San Francisco for trans
portation to the Philippines.
The Buford is arranged as a troop ship,
with only enough room aboard for the
men and their baggage and supplies.
Why spe was sent here for cargo 13
what people along the waterfront want
to know. According to first reports, she
was ordered to take about 1,000,000 feet
of lumber, but somebody evidently made
a miscalculation, for only a little over
half a million could be put aboard of her,
and that by utilizing space intended for
soldiers' quarters. The transport has no
cargo hatches or other facilities for load
ing lumber, and it was slow and unsatis
factory work putting the cargo .in her.
It Is the general belief that more or less
of this lumber will be unloaded when the
Buford gets to San Francisco to make
room for the troops Bhe Is expected to
take to the Orient
