WAY BE DECIDED TODAY
In Proportion to Tributary Popula
tion, Travel to Portland's Ex
position Exceeds That to
Any Other World's Fair.
Records of the railroad passenger de
partments disclose that local travel to the
Lewis and Clark Exposition exceeds that
to any other of the xrorld's fairs that have
been held in this country, population of
tributary country considered. Although
the railroads made great preparations for
the heavy traffic that it -was anticipated
would follow the opening of the Portland
Fair, all expectations have been exceeded
during the first month, and in preparation
for the heavier traffic that is certain to
offer during the Summer months, oper
ating and traffic departments are engaged
in working out plans for increasing ser
vice. It Is probable that the Southern Pa
cific will put on another through train be
tween Portland and San Francisco to
meet the demands of travel, and officials
have for some time had under considera
tion the making of schedules faster than
any previously operated, making it a lim
ited train on which only passengers hold
ing first-class through tickets would be
permitted to travel.
Upon his return to Portland today, one
of the first matters to be referred to Gen
eral Manager O'Brien will be the matter
of deciding upon whether or not a limited
train shall be placed in service. Local
traffic Is the cause of the congestion that
has made necessary operation of second
sections of regular trains, and not through
travel; hence, if operated as a limited and
confined to through passengers, it would
hardly serve the purpose for which' It la
intended. Details have tocen worked out
as to what schedules would best serve the
public for submission to General Manager
Calvin, at San Francisco, and General
Manager O'Brien, here, and It is under
stood that a decision will be reached as
soon as consideration can be given at this
end. Three months ago there was some
thought among officials of putting on a
limited train that would make the run
between Portland and San Francisco in
about 27 hours, but was abandoned as not
justified by the volume of through travel.
Likewise, at that time plans for another
through train between the two Coast
points were rejected, because it was
thought the traffic could lc more econom
ically handled by doubling regular trains
in extra sections as found necessary. But
the Increase of travel has revived the
idea of adding another train.
"Northern Pacific trains will be playing
to full capacity of their equipment all of
this season." said A. D. Charlton, assist
ant general passenger agent of that com
pany, who has had his finger on the pulse
of public travel very closely. "We have
a constant stream of business in sight,
and reports show that local travel to the
Lewis and Clark Exposition exceeds that
to any other of the world's fairs that have
been held, population considered. Capa
city of trains has been exceeded, and sec
ond sections have been run frequently to
handle the business, with special trains
occasionally in addition. Five special
trains have been run to accommodate
travel to the East since the gates opened
the first of this month, which conveys
some notion of the number of Eastern peo
ple who have been here and already re
turned home. We have 50 additional
coaches on this end of the road, and they
will all be utilized to capacity."

Great Northern Express Company, head

The quartet, according to the evi

day afternoon for an outing. They re
mained long, and after reaching the
city again, hunted up the Chinese noo

and the police were called in.
Sergeant Taylor, with Policemen
Price and Lilli, hurried to the scene
and were just in time to catch the men
of the party trying to dash out through
windows. All were arrosted and

Throe "saucy" lads, highly important
in their own esteem, were fined by
Judge Hogue yesterday, after he hoard
the testimony of G. H. Simpson, James
V. Sayre and C. C. Hamilton. The boys
were Harry Richards, Frank Brandos
and Frank Barrens. Richards was lined
$10, and the others Jin each.
The trouble with the youths was
that they attempted to "run" Con lac
tor Hamilton's car. bound for the Oaks,
one -week ago Sunday evening. The
Brandes lad seemed a trifle more ac
tive on the car than the others. He had
a cam-, it was hown, with which he
slapped passengers in the face. He also
cursed and usod obecone language, and
passengers called the attention of the
conductor to it. When Brandes was
told ho must quit making trouble, he
grew more Insulting than ever, and waa
put off the car.
Then it was that Richards and Bar

the lads were arrestod.

"When you pleaded guilty, you expect

"Woil." I suppose so." replied Hunter.
"I wlK fine you and Solon $16 each,

The fight occurred because Hunter
owed Seton a bin and repeatedly refused
to pay it.
A fine of $M was imposed upon Frank
Wilson by Judge Hogue when the defend

on a charge of disorderly conduct and be

The belligerents were taken into cus

Patton, and it is believed by the officials
that a murder was thus averted.
It was shown that both men had been
working In a restaurant at the Lewis and
Clark Exposition grounds, and became
embittered over a trivial matter. Kelly
told Judge Hogue that Wilson imme
diately went to his room and secured a
razor. Kelly said he knew Wilson was
intending to attack him. and that In

Wilson, who made a vicious assault with
the razor. "When Policeman Patton ar

gable for Steamers.
With the Columbia almost at its highest
stage of the season, and when the channel
was besot with dangers which will not be
there with lower water, the steamer Glen
ola successfully traversed the three miles
between The Dalles and Big Eddy Sun
day afternoon, groping her way among
rocks which have not seen a steamer pass
them for four years.
Tlie Glenola was chartered from the
Oregon Round Lumber Company by the
United States Engineers, who desired to
ascertain for a certainty whether the
stretch of water leading up to the west
ern end of the Portage Road was naviga
ble. It was decided to make the test when
the river was high and the most difficul
ties would be encountered. The result of
the trip means that the Portage Road will
not be extended to The Dalles, as the
Government can maintain that any cap
tain using ordinary precautious can take
his steamer to the wharfboat at the Big
Eddy, upon which the freight brought
over the Portage Road will he discharged.
Major W. C. Langatt and Captain Fries,
of the Engineers' office; Portage Engineer
McClelland. Captain Hoeford and George
Teal, a brother of J. N. TeaL of the Open
River Association, besides Captain Lee
and the other officers of the Glenola, made
the trip. Captain Gray, of Lewiston.
acted as pilot both ways.
The party boarded the steamer at The
Dalles Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock. The
Glenola went directly to the rapids and
began to fight her way up, earning 139
pounds of steam, five pounds less than
her allowance. Steamers like the Bailey
Gatzert and the Spencer, which regularly
make the run through the rapids below
the Cascade Locks, carry close to 303
pounds of steam. The men on the Glenola
say they had far more trouble bucking
the stream below the locks than when
above The Dalles.
The water was foaming all around the
steamer. There is a abort turn in the
channel, which makes navigation difficult,
but Captain Gray got her through the
rough water and Into the smoother boil
ing area, which is comparatively free of
rocks. In 2$ minutes after leaving The
Dalles the Glenola was at the wharfboat.
The run down was made In IS minutes.
The party arrived by train yosterday
morning, and the steamer returned at 3
o'clock yesterday afternoon.
Four years the steamer Albany took
railroad Iron to the grade of the Paul

SAN FRANCISCO. June 26. The ship

the Agnes before she sank. A search over

Union Meat Company, Fourth and
GHsnn, Suffer Loss of About
a Thousand Dollars.'
The Union Heat Company, at Fourth
and Glisan streets, for the second time
within the year, caught fire lost night and
completely destroyed one of the company's
smokehouses, with about 20X pounds of
moat. The Are is supposed to nave start
ed from an overheated wood fire In one
of the two smokehouses, which was being
used to cure a quantity of meat. The
company had a rush order which they
were trying to get out early this morning,
and had a larger quantity of meat over
the Arc than usual. The fire became too
hot and caused the crease to scatter to
the woodwork, causing the blaze.
The fire was discovered by one of the
watchmen of the building, who turned In
the alarm. The department made a quick
run, but before they arrived the rear of
tho building, where the smokehouses arc
located, was In flames.
The loss to the company will not be
more than J10CO to the building, including
the meat destroyed. The company has
been using the smokehouses but a sh'ort
time. The rest of the building is being
rebuilt, and in the rear the framework is
uncompleted. For a short time It looked
as If the surrounding buildings would be
In danger, and horses were removed from
near-by stables and families moved their
furniture to the street. Several lines of
hose were run In from Fourth street and
the smokehouse flooded before the flames
spread to the adjoining one. Besides a
little damage from water, the other
smokehouse was not harmed.

Testimony that some of the bricks in

"The only thing I know of doing wrong
was not attending to my work better."
Mr. Meadenhall several times asked the
witness. "You admit having done your
work wrong, don't you; what do you
mean by It?"
O'Xelll endeavored to explain that he
meant that he was acting under orders
of E. "V. Riner, and counsel endeavored
to eonstrue the admission as a -voluntary
confession. In the other portions of the
letter O'Xelll relates that he has seen
In the newspapers that the Rlaars ara
having trouble about the sewer and have
blamed the writer. O'Xelll assures Riner
that he never said a word, that ho has
more gratitude than that, as he was
treated well and paid the wages he de
manded. He closes by saying- he is will
ins to make an affidavit that he never
said anything about the work, but heard
others do so.
The witness testified further that the
checks for his wages were signed by
R. M. Riner. and he received them from
Howard Riner. They worked nights and
days on the Job. and Mr. Thomas wa
the foreman. Ed Riner was sometimes
there at 2 and 3 o'clock, in the mora
lns. O'Xelll said he worked as much as
27 hours without resting.
J. P. O'Xelll. who was a foreman in the
sewer, testified that the work was weft
1 done on the first five courses, but not
J so well at tho lower end. He was em
ployed by Sydney Smyth repairing the
bad places, and found brick laid with

"Williams that he (Elliott) had personally
inspected the sewer, and knew It to be

also called as a witness.
Mr. Mendenhall is endeavoring- to es
tablish the fact that the evidence does
not show that E. W. Riner had any Inter
