Sam -Colson, Veteran Pilot, is
Stricken Down.
Pacific Mail Will Lose Valuable
Trade if Government Terminates
Panama Railroad Contract
Relic of the Clallam.
Captain Samuul Celson, bottor known
as "BIr Sam." one of the most popular
of the old-time river captains, was
stricken "Mondav evoninj? while at his
pout of duty, and now lies In a precari
ous condition at his home at 326 Bast
Second strwt-
Captain Colson is master of the O. R.
& X. tugboat Ockluhama. He left here on
his steamer Monday morning, towing the
British ship Durbrldge down, the river.
When at a point near Kalama their prog
ress was impeded by a log-raft, and It
Is presumed that the worry or strain
was what brought on the attack of par
alysis. Charles Anderson, the mate of
the Ocklahama, at once took charge of
the boat and, having the ship anchored
on the spot, steamed to the Kalama
wharf. There everything possible was
done for the stricken captain, and when
the Undine came along during the night,
bound up the river, he was transferred
in her and brought to this city. Mr. An
derson proceeded down stream with the
ship, reaching Astoria yesterday after
Will Lose Valuable Trcde if Panama
Contract Is Terminated.
Schwerln, the chief representative of Har
riman's steamship companies on this
Coast, the Pacific Mail and Occidental &
Oriental lines, is back from New York,
where he has been conferring with Mr.
'Harrimait about the Pacific Mall's exclu
sive traffic contract with the Panama
Railroad and the likelihood of that con
tract being terminated by the United
States authorities, now that the Govern
ment owns the road.
"I do not know what action the Gov
ernment may or will take in the mater,"
."aid he. "I do know, though, that the
Pacific Mali will be forced to withdraw
Its Panama line of steamers, should the
Washington authorities cancel the pres
ent traffic agreement. The Pacific Mall
. annot fight the Government, and would
not pretend to do so. If the contract Is
terminated, the Pacific Mall would find
the business under competitive conditions
such a losing venture that it would be
forced to withdraw. It cannot help it
eelf." "Our most profitable business on the
Panama route Is between Central Ameri
ca and Europe, and the Chilean Steam
ship Company would get this, so we would
lose the most valuable part of the Pana
ma, route's traffic. The Kosmos line of
steamers is already competing with the
Pacific Mail on traffic between this city
and Mexico and Central American points."

Carry Passengers Without License.

ceive. The steamer was used during the
fishing season as a tender for a seining
ground and she was fined for bringing 13
men belonging to the seining crew to this
city. Her master had, however, received
a previous warning, and that is under
stood to be the reason the Treasury De
partment has refused to act upon the ap
peal. The Agnes is owned in Vancouver.

Multnomah Lawmakers. Study
Problem .of Organization.
Meet Tonight to Discuss Their Cburso
in Election of President and
Speaker What the Prob
lems Are.
To find Multnomah's bearings, in the sea
of Legislative politics lawmakers from thls;
county will meet tonight at S o'clock in
the City Hall, with their legs under the
mahogany council tabic of the Executive
Board. They will endeavor to decide how
Multnomah should stand In the organiza
tion of the Senate and House of Repre
sentatives. The organization ' of each
branch will be determined in Republican
caucus one week from next Monday, when
the Legislature will convene. In the Sen
ate caucus Multnomah will have seven
Senators out of 25 and in the Hoifse cau
cus 13 out of 50.
The Multnomah lawmakers have grown
restive at the spectacle of Legislative
politics all around them, and at last have
decided to jump Into the game themselves.
They will resolve tonight whether to sup
port A. A. Bailey for the Speakership or
Dan J. Malarkey for the Presidency.
Both are Portland men. Other candidates
for the Speakership are T. B.. Kay, of
Salem, and W. L Vawter, of Medford,
and for the presidency Dr. W. Kuykendall,
of Eugene, and E. V. Carter, of Ashland.
Bailey in Game Early.
Bailey launched his candidacy soon after
the election last June, but has not re
ceived encouragement from the entire
House delegation, and, as a solid phalanx
is necessary to his success, his chances
are not bright. Besides. Kay has made
such progress outside Multnomah that he
has come to be regarded as the probable
Speaker. He has declared that, though
he would welcome the support of Mult
nomah, still. If he cannot get it, he will
win anyhow. There Is no denying the
fact that Kay has mustered so many
votes that he Is far In the lead: Indeed he
has announced confidence in his success
on the first caucus ballot.
Is Perplexing Problem.
, The problem as to the Senate presents
considerable perplexity. Senator Kuy
kendall had been in the field since last
Summer and for a time had things pretty
much his own way. But Senator Carter
sprang Into the game ten days ago and
has combined the anti-Kuykendall ele
ments in such a way that he seems the
stronger outside 'Multnomah County. But
the situation appears to be that, without
aid from this county, neither Cartor nor
Kuykendall can be elected; therefore the
seven Senators from Multnomah must
choose between those two candidates or
put up a candidate of their own.
The meeting tonight will be held behind
closed doors and is intended for considera
tion of Legislative politics and not bills.
Representative Wiliamson Says He
'Has Never Defrauded Government.
ington, Dec 27. The Oregonian of De
cember 23, received, here this evening,
brought the first Intimation that Repre
sentative Williamson's name had been
connected with the Oregon land frauds.
When shown The Oregonian atory Mr.
Williamson said:
"'Yea, I have just read last Friday's
Oregonian. It contains the first Intima
tion I had received that my name was
being handled in connection with
present deliberations of the grand jury
at Portland. I am at an utter loss to
know upon what facts such statements
are based. 1 have never been party to any
transactions to defraud the Government
out of land or anything olse."
Asked about his alleged connection
with the- Puter-Watson combination, Mr.
Williameon said that he never saw one of
these persons In his life that he knew of,
and never had had any relations with
them whatever, either In a social or In a
business way.
"While I am well acquainted with Mr.
Maya," said he, "I have never .owned an
acre ot land, a hoof of stock or property
of any kind in which he owned an Interest.
I have known Mr. Mays since my boy
hood and always held him In the high
est esteem, but have never had any
co-par tnerehip with him In business. So
far as I am concerned I have never vio
lated any public land law and I have no
apologies or explanations to make for any
act of mine. 1 defy any living man or
set of men to produce testimony that will
make good the' statements that appear
In the columns of The Oregonian under
date of December 23."
When asked if he was going to Port
land to appear before the grand Jury Mr.
Williamson replied:
"No; I have committed -no wrong and
I do not fear the results of any investi
gation being made now or. that may be
made hereafter."

bishop of the Protestant Episcopal

untruthful letter regarding Rev. I. N.
Irvine or mailed or caused the letter
to be mailed to Dr. IT. p. John, presi
dent of the Philadelphia Catholic Club.
(A copy of the letter follows.)
"Specification 2 That Bishop Talbot
Is guilty of lying in having written
such: 'I say to you that this man was

Bishopric. South Bethlehem, Pa., Feb. 5.
1S99. My Dear Irvine: The woman to
whom you refer is by canon excommuni

presumption to present herself at the
holy communion. If you think there Is
any danger of her doing so. It would be'
better for you. In some kind and gentle
way, to Intimate to her her true condi

you think she does so in Ignorance, then

deathbed that Irvine had outraged two
girls In his city, and Bishops Whltaker,

The Novoe Vremya, which, in common
with other papers, has been display

opening of the present regime, takes ad
vantage of the greater liberty of the press
suggested In the imperial ukase issued

Scott's Emulsion is cod
liver oil prepared as a food
not a food like bread or meat,
but more like cream ; in fact,
it is the cream of cod liver
oil. At the same time it is a
blood-maker, a nerve tonic
and a flesh-builder. But
principally it is food for tired

who are fat-starved and thin.
It is pleasant to take ; children

Under Physicians Five
Months. Went from
Bad to Worse.
Wonderful Change in One Sight.
In a Month Face Was
Clean as Ever.
" I waa troubled -with eczema on the
face for five months during which time
I- was In the care of physicians. My
face -was in such a condition that I
could not go out. It was going from
bad to worse and I gave up all hope,
when a friend of mine highly recom
mended Cuticura Remedies. The first
night after I washed my face with Cu
ticura Soap and used Cuticura Ointment
and Cuticura Eesolrent it changed won
derfully, and continuing the treatment
it removed all scales and scabs. From
that day I was able to go out, and in a
month my face was as clean as ever."

I have not been troubled with eczema
The agonizing itching and burning of
the skin as in eczema; the frightful
scaling, as in psoriasis; the lo3s of hair
and crusting of scalp, as in scalled
head: the facial disfigurement, as In
plmpiesand ringworm; the awful suf
fering of infants, and anxiety of worn
out parents, as in milk crust, tetter and
salt rheum all demand a remedy of
almost superhuman virtues to success
fully cope with them. That Cuticura
Soap, Ointment and Resolvent are such
stands proven beyond all doubt. No
statement is made regarding them that
is sot justified by the strongest evi
dence. The purity and sweetness, the
power to afford immediate relief, the
certainty of speedy and permanent
cure, the absolute safety and great
economy have made them the standard
skin cures of the civilized world.
