Rates Inland Are Not
Yet Settled.
Conditional Concessions Are
Question of Distributive Tariffs Is
One of the Most Difficult and
Far-Reaching Problems
to Solve. H
The traffic directors of the transcontl
nental linra have met with the representa
tives of the North Pacific Coast Jobbers'
and Manufacturers Association, have din
cussed the question of a rearrangement of
the distributive rates inland, and have
parted for a time without definite action
or promise of change. The question is
left as much In the air ae It was after the
meeting of three months ago, and the out
come is not yet. No one knows what
will be done, -whether or not the railroads
will make the concessions asked for by
the Northwest jobbers, not even the traffic
men themselves.
Yesterday afternoon, the various traffic
men who have been gathering in the city
for the past two or three days met with
a large number of the Portland jobbers.
Besides the local men, Seattle was repre
sented in the conference by J. S. Gold
smith, Tacoma by H. Hyde, and San
Francisco by II. D. Lovelo.nO.
Railroad Midnight Conference.
The railroad representatives came Into
the meeting strengthened by a long mid
night conference held at the Portland Ho
tel on the night previous, at which time
the various phases of the questions at
issue had been gone over In common, and
from the standpoints of each corporation
and from the view of the jobbers. As a
result of this conference, as well as of the
individual attention which has been given
to the question by each man during the
three months .elapsed since the first meet
ing, certain concessions in differential
rates and in class charges as to carload
lots inland were made to the Jobbers and
offered in at least partial solution of the
questions at issue. What these conces
sions were or what class of goods they
affected was not disclosed by either the
traffic men or the Jobbers, as no action
was taken on them. Instead both parties
agreed to exercise a twofold forbearance,
one toward the other. The Jobbers not
being able to tell at first glance whether
or not the proposition made by the rail
road men would work to their ultimate
advantage, asked for time in which t
consider what had been offered them.
They also coupled with their request for
time some proposals which the railroad
men, in turn, wished to consider, the re
sult of the session being that the matter
will be taken up April 12 or 13 for a further
Statement by Stubbs.
J. C. Stubbs, who, as the father of the
around-the-Horn rate standard theory and
the dean of the traffic men, acted as the
spokesman for the traffic men, stated it
to be his belief that better results of ad
justment could be reached with fewer
numbers, and suggested that a small com
mittee of the jobbers be n amort to meet
with the railroad men on a subsequent
date for consideration of the existing
points of difference. This suggestion was
adopted by the association, and a com
mittee, consisting of J. S. Goldsmith, of
Seattle; H. Hyde, of Tacoma; H. D. Love
land, of San Francisco; L. A. Lewis, A.
F. Biles. TV. H. Beharrell, T. D. Honey
man, E. J. Newbegin, Hugh McGuire and
"W. A. Mears, of Portland, was named
to confer with the traffic men when the
third meeting shall be held.
The questions with which the meeting
of yesterfday struggled are so intricate
that it -will be a great, and -perhaps a
slow, task to unravel them. Their rami
fications reach to Denver, to Seattle. Ta
coma, Spokane and to San Francisco. If
the distributive rate out of Portland
on one commodity is changed, it. In all
probability, throws out of harmony the
entire scheme of rate charges for a half
dozen places. It is this interwoven en
tanglement of interests, the formidable
effect from the small cause, that Is mak
ing the final adjustment, if there, be an
adjustment, come so slowly from the
hands of the traffic men.
Difficulties in the- Way.
"Few people realize what the traffic
men are up against in this matter," ex
plained Mr. Stubbs after the meeting
last night. 4,I have been in this business
for 35 years and. in ail my career I have
never met with, a proposition which is so
intricate, so interwoven and so difficult
of adjustment. The traffic men are be
tween the devil and the deep'blue sea,
and the question is in the air. If we do
one thing the inland country howls out
loud; if we do the other the seacoast
towns growl and complain. At the meet
ing this afternoon a proposition was
made to the jobbers involving the low
ering of rates on some classes of freight
and the raising of the charges on others.
The merchants not knowing how the
whole proposition would affect them,
whether the advantage gained on the
one hand would offset the Increase on the
other, asked for time to consider. The
railroads also -wished time to think over
what had been, asked, and so It was sug
gested by me and decided to "appoint a
committee with which I could meet when
I return from Spokane on Wednesday.
There was no decision reached at the
meeting, but this does not mean that
none 'will be. We are working on the
question and want to do what is right
and just, but it is not a thing that can
be sottled in a day.
"We want, and intend, to do what is
just to all," continued Mr. Stubbs. "I
have made promises to Spokane and these
I Intend to keep. I will do nothing and
will agree to no changes which will nul
lify any of the promises I have given
to that city or any other; but what I
can do to better conditions I will do in
so far as it is possible in loyalty to the
company which I represent."
Status of Controversy.
This statement tells in brief the status
of the controversy. It may be that the
rates out of Portland will be lowered In
part at least, and It may be that but
few changes will be made. Time and
consideration will decide that point; time
and consideration and legislation and its
results. The Interstate Commerce Com
mission and what it will be and do wor
ries the railroads. The new Washington
State Commission is a thorn in the cor
porate side the wound from which has
not yet been diagnosed. Its personnel Is
unknown and its actions are very, very
problematical. Jf the majority of the
znen. appointed by -Governor Mead 'come
from Seattle or Tacoma or that dis
trict it would not be a serious matter
should the distributive rates from the
Coast be lowered, but if Spokane and her
district has the ascendancy there would
be immediate retribution visited upon the
roads which made such changes. And
besides these apparently simple troubles
there are many others more intricate and
more hard to solve. The effort will be to
strike a happy medium, if such a thing
exists, upon which the whole question
may be hung to the delight of all, and
this may happen at the conference of
next weeli, though It is doubtful and
a thing of uncertain hope.
Mr. Stubbs will leave this evening for
Seattle and Tacoma. Sunday he will go
to Spokane and will remain there for a
day or two and will return to Portland
either on Wednesday morning or evening,
as the trains run. J. M. Hannaford will
leave today for the North, and it is not
thought that he will be present at the
next meeting, though it is possible. J. G.
Wood worth will remain in Portland until
the conference.
In the meantime the committee ap
pointed by the "jobbers" will work out
me enecr. or tne concessions proposed oy
the railroads, and will prepare statistics
bearing upon ' the requests made by tho
association. There Is an expressed hope
on both sides that the next meeting will
be productive of some action of a definite

The investigation of the Booth-Kelly
Company by the Federal grand jury was
J.- C. Stubbs, Traffic IHrector Horriman
continued yesterday, with Charles W.
Eberleln, land agent of the Southern Pa
cific, as chief witness
The records of the purchases by the
Booth-Kelly Company of railroad lands
were fully gone into in an endeavor to
establish the fact of a conspiracy on its
part. It will be the aim of the Govern
ment to show that when the lumber
company purchased large bodies of tim
ber land from the railroad company sim
ultaneous with these purchases, which
were composed entirely of odd-numbered
sections, the adjoining even or Govern
ment sections were located on by various
entrymen. It is the assumption that tho
Booth-Kelly Company had a considerable
interest in these locations, since by pur
chases from the railroad company and
the locators they would come Into pos
session of solid bodies of valuable tim
ber. J. W. Cook. who. with his partner. J. 1.
Jones, Js said to have sold J3.00O acres to
the lumber company, was also before the
jury yesterday and testified in regard to
the sale. James Benson, a druggist of
Cottage Grove, who made an entry on
some timber land and later sold it to the
Booth-Kelly Company, told of this trans
action. It is believed that the greater portion
of the Government's investigation of this
company has been completed, and that
the work being done now is simply the
clearing up of details.
Policeman Instructed to Swear to tho
Warrant Against Lcnhart.
Chief of Police Hunt yesterday in
structed Captain Moore to have Patrol
man Oelsner swear to a complaint charg
ing H. Lenhart with discharging firearms
in the city limits. Lenhart is proprietor'
of the Star saloon, where at least one
shot was fired by him. It Is alleged.
Tuesday night. 'Richard Major Is said
to have been In the establishment, and
is supposed to have created a disturb
ance. Lenhart claims to have fired a
bullet into the floor to frighten Major.
Patrolman Oelsner, on whose beat the
shooting occurred, heard of it Tuesday
night, but by arrangement with Captain
Moore and Chief Hunt he does not re
port at Police Headquarters after his
hours of duty, as all other officers do. He
Is a sickly man, and as streetcars are
not running after midnight, he is per
mitted to report off by telephone and go
to his home, which is on his beat. When
he has occasion to make a written report,
which he rarely ever does, he sends It
over by another officer.
Patrolman Oelsner did not report the
shooting to headquarters until Captain
Moore heard of It in another manner and
ordered him to send in a written report.
Deputy City Attorney Fitzgerald has be
come interested in the case and will
probably have Major arrested also, charg
ing disorderly conduct. It is believed by
the officials that there Is a sensational
story behind the shooting case, and that
a strong effort was made to suppress the
entire affair. '
In Memory of Dr Cardwell.
The semi-monthly meeting of the Port
land Medical Society was held, in Elks'
Hall last night. The principal event of
the evening was the reading of a paper
prepared by Dr. Richard Nunn upon
"Clinical Observations of Ear, Eye. Nose
and Throat Diseases In New York." The
reading of the paper was followed by a
discussion among those present.
A committee was appointed to draft res
olutions upon the death of Dr. H. W.

Orion Brings News of Schooner Don
ahue, Seized by Uruguay.
"VICTORIA, B. C, April C The steam
whaler Orion, built at Christiania, Nor
way, for the whaling station being es
tablished on Vancouver Island, arrived
today. Her crew is composed of Nor
wegians, trained whalers, secured by
Captain Balcom in Norway.
At Montevideo, the Orion's master
spoke with Captain Ryan, of the
schooner Agnes G. Donahue, seized by
a Uruguayan gunboat. The crew had
been released. Captain Ryan and the
schooner were still held, but it was
stated at Montevideo that there was no
case against the vessel, she being well
outside the limits whqn seized. The
crew had preferred claims for dam
ages, and Captain Balcom, the owner,
had asked $65,000 as compensation for
the seizure. There were 400 skins on
the seized sealer.
Will Not -Arrive Here Until Next
The British steamship Sandhurst, which
is coming here to load hay for Islngtau,
China, will not arrive until Tuesday or
Wednesday of next week. The Ivydene,
which has been taking oats at Seattle on
the same account, did not sail until last
night. The Sandhurst has been waiting
for her berth at the Seattle dock, and
would start loading this morning, but
some necessary repairs must be made,
which will delay her another day.
Rumors were current yesterday that an
other tramp steamer was to be laid on
here for Hour and grain to Japan. It
was said that offers of $4 to vessels had
been made both to the Portland & Asiatic
Company and to local shippers, but noth
ing came of them. A fixture was made
for Seattle loading at this rate. The
steamer will take a full cargo of flour
at the Centennial Mill.
Longshoremen's Troubles May Lead
to General Conflict in Seattle.
SEATTLE, Wash., April 6. It is now
eight days since the commencement of
the troubles between the Longshoremen's
Union and the stevedoring firm of McCabe.
& Hamilton, and peace seems further off
than ever. The action of the Citizens'
Alliance in securing a temporary restrain
ing order prohibiting the strikers from
placing pickets has caused considerable
ill feeling and the Western Central Labor
Union has taken the matter up for dis
cussion at a special meeting. For a
considerable time the relations between
employers and the members of the var
ious labor organizations of this city have
been strained almost to the breaking
point, and it Is believed that a general
conflict Is imminent.
Refuse to Load Ocean Monarch.
TACOMA, Wash., April 6. The union
longshoremen of Tacoma have boy
cotted the steamer Ocean Monarch and
refuse to load her, and pickets are keep
ing men away from the dock. The long
shoremen sent word to McCabe & Ham
ilton, stevedores having tho vessel in
charge, that they would not load the ship
unless the firm would pay a fine of 10
cents an hour a man for the time re
quired to place tho freight on the ship.
John Chase, president of the local union,
said: "We mean business. The fine must
be paid or the ship will not be loaded.
McCabe &. Hamilton cut the union scale
of wages in Seattle and partly loaded the
vessel there with nonunion men. The
stevedores are willing to pay the regu
lar wages here, but we cannot accept
them and remain affiliated with our
union. The fine goes."
Only Frenchmen Chartered.
SAN FRANCISCO, April 6. (Special.)
Indications favor higher rates for grain
freights soon owing to fine crop pros
pects and the small amount of tonnage
headed this way. About ten French ves
sels are already under charter for new
crop loading at this port at union rates
of 22s 6d for wheat and 233 3d for "bar
lely. Brltltsh owners are holding out
for an advance of 2s 6d over the present
rates, and no vessels of that nationality
are reported fixed.-

occurred at the St. George Hall ballad

his "indisposition." Facing his audience,
Mr. Ashlyn said: "Ladles and gentlemen,
I am unable to give my usual entertain

Organization of the Northern Brew
cry Company and the Acquire
ment of the Star Plant
Means Heavy Investment.
Since the organization of the North
ern Brewery Company last Monday which
involved the taking over of the property
of the Star Brewing Company, of Van
couver, several interesting details have
come to light.
The dispatch from Cleveland, O., that
appeared in The Oregonlan on March 16.
stating that a new company had been
formed there for the purpose of taking
over the combined breweries of Portland,
mentioned the names of T. H. Bourne,
president of the Union National Bank of
Cleveland, and Henry Boehmke, a prom-
' Inent capitalist of that city as the ones
W. A. Mears, Secretary.
most interested- The same men were
reported to be the promoters that so suc
cessfully merged the breweries of Ohio
under one management, but when the
officers of the local brewing establish
ments were asked about the deal all de
nied any knowledge of the matter, and
until the arrival of Mr. Boehmke and
Allen R. Smart at the Hotel Portland
one day last week no further attention
was paid to the report.
So quietly did the men of money work
that even their presence was unknown
except to the stockholders of the Star
Brewery with whom they at once opened
negotiations, and until Monday morning,
when the articles of incorporation were
drawn up, nothing definite was heard of
what they had accqmplisned. Even the
name of Mr. Boehmke was not men
tioned at that time, and according to
the story told by the Incorporators, the
only change was In the name of the com
pany and the sale of a portion of the
stock owned by Gustav Friewald to sev
eral of the employes and two Cleveland
capitalists. It now develops that for the
past year the Star Brewery Company has
been quietly purchasing property both in
this state and Washington to the extent
of over $300,000, and that the plant of the
brewing company at Vancouver. Wash..
has been Increased to such an extent
that its capacity equals that of any
brewery in Portland.
Much Property Bought.
Gustav Friewald, the president of the
new company, says that during the past
year the company has purchased property
in several small towns In this state and In
Washington besides investing $15,000 in the
quarter block at East Third and East
Burnside streets in Portland and acquir
ing another quarter block In Vancouver.
Wash., at a cost of $5000. Besides this
Mr. Friewald has purchased in his own
name a $10,000 piece of property at Oregon
city upon which he will erect a three-
story brick building, the lower floor of
which will be used for saloon purposes.
He has also Invested quite heavily In
otner local property.
At Vancouver. Wash., the company has
Just completed a three-story brick cold-
storage warehouse 35x40 feet which in
creases the storage capacity of the plant
to 16, barrels of beer. New tanks and
machinery are now being put In which will
enable the brewery to make more than
100,000 barrels of beer annually and a new
16-ton Ice plant was completed last week
that will furnish the people of Vancouver
with ice as well as keep the beer In the
warehouse cool.
It Is the Intention of the new Northern
Brewery Company still further to increase
the capacity of the brewery and to de
velop the trade in all parts of the state
Several well-known saloons about Port
land will soon handle Its brew, and to
control this trade the bottling establish
ment on the East Side will be enlarged.
Plans of Boehmke.
The investment of Eastern capital has
given the company a fresh start, and ac
cording to the plans of Mr. Boehmke,
who left for the East yesterday morning.
every effort will be made to make
the Star the largest brewery on
tne Facinc Coast Just as soon
as. possible. There are millions of dollars
behind the new company that will enable
it to increase the plant and build up a
Dig trade.
Adam Mueller will be the manager of
the new company and C A. Paul Dachsel
will be the treasurer. Mr. Dachsel has
been an employe of the Star Brewery for
tne past two years, but for many years
was In the newspaper business in Mil
waukee and surrounding towns. He has
quite a reputation as a translator of
German and Is the author of several
t9 fl
books. With the exception of Allen R.
Smart, of Cleveland, the Eastern capital
ists names do not appear in the list of
officers, but in the directorate Mr.
Boehmke has his name. Gustav Friewald
will be the chairman of the board of
directors and will act ex-offlcio as presl
dent of the company. C. T. Stewart will
be the assistant secretary and assistant
Jackson Takes an Appea!.
G. W. Jackson, against whom Mrs. J.
E. Dickey recently obtained a Judgment
In Judge Cleland's Court for $10,400. has
appealed the case to the Supreme Court.
They lived together for a long time as
husband and wife, and some years ago
Jackson went to Manila and Mrs. Dickey
followed him. He conducted a hotel and
saloon, and Is reported to have made
about $40,000. They returned to Portland
and they separated. As a settlement he
gave her a half-interest in a certificate
of deposit for $20,000 in the Bank of Ladd
& Tilton. Subsequently he tried to pre
vent her from obtaining her portion of
the money. She sued him and he entered
a defense of threats and said she com
pelled him against his will to sign over
to her one-half of the certificate. Judge
Cleland decided that there were no
threats and that she was entitled to the
Southern Pacific Improvement.
Reports received at the office of Gen
eral Manager Worthington show that
since March 1 there have been 46.79
miles of new 80-pound rails laid on the
Southern Pacific track north of Ash
land. This work is in connection with
an extensive plan of track Improve
ment which is to be carried out on the
Henry llahn.
lines of the Southern Pacific In Oregon
between Ashland and Oregon City, per
haps during the year. Traffic condi
tions are changing to such an extent
that the old rails and light track of
the Southern Pacific will not meet the
requirements of the service for a much
longer period of time.

New Bedford. Mass., tells what Vlnol
did for her children. 8he writes:
"With two puny, ailing children. I was
very much worried, and did not know
what to do to create strength for them
and to have them gain flesh. I tried
almost everything, and as a last resort
Vlnol, and the benefits from that was
great In a very short time. They are
rapidly gaining flesh and strength, and
I am satisfied Vlnol will do as much
for other children."
It Is because we know what Vinol
will do that we guarantee if it fails to
make your children well, rugged and
rosy, to refund your money. Woodard,

"My wife suffered with' nervousness
previous to a recent attack of typhoid
lever, but after her recovery from the
fever, she was much worse, and could
hardly control herself being: exceed
ingly nervous when the least excited.
She was very restless at night, and
never had a good night's rest. She
also suffered much from nervous head
ache. Br. Mi! as' Nervine was recom
mended by a friend. After the first
three doses she had a good night's
rest, and at tho end of the first week's
treatment she was wonderfully im
proved. Continued use of Nervine haa
completed her entire cure."
