Some Contend That Northern Pa
cific Will Find It Easier to
Bridge Columbia Not Far
From La Camas.
Stbeugh construction is in progress on
the Portland & Seattle Railroad by which,
tralns f the Northern Pacific and Great
Northern Railroads will enter Portland
over their own Joint trackage, the definite
location of the line between "Washougal
and Vancouver has not yet been decided.
According to authoritative information,
- no right of way has been secured between
those pointy and owing to the expensive
character of the construction for a por
tion of the distance nnd valuable prop
erty along the Columbia that would be
crossed by a north-bank line, it is be
lieved by rosldonts of that locality that
the company will Instead swing to the
north on slightly higher ground, passing
In the vicinity of Orchard and entering
Vancouver from the higher ground above
high-water mark of the Columbia, Instead
of by trestle or made-ground grade along
the stream. Aside from the 200 acres ad.
3o4nln the barracks ci the cast, the
Btarock farm property, the company
owns no land for that portion of the road.
Obstructions Along River. j
Among obstructions offered to a river- i
bank line is the quarry of the Columbia
Contract Company, having the contract
or supplying stone for the Columbia
River Jetty, blasts from which frequently I
burl rocks Into the stream, atnd aside from 1
construction difficulties that would be prc
wnted has the element of danger of inter
feronce with train operation. It Is believ
ed the owners of the quarry would prefer
thaj the line -find a route elsewhere. A
little further down-stream is the plant of
the Columbia Canning Company, that
would likewise be In the way, and Just
below are properties on which are located
handsome homes, several of which are
right in the line of tho initial survey
nwdo almost two years ago, and since
which no work has been done on that
portion of the projected line. Another ob.
Mtruction is offered in the plant of the tile
factory, owned by George V. Bates.
While interest at Vancouver has been
intense In tho gradual developments of
plans that are destined to make that an
Important railroad point. Irrespective of
how the details may be wrought out,
there Is strong deslro on the part of the
people to know the location of the line in
that immediato vicinity.
Engineering Corps Work.
Maay months ago an engineering corps
Sevoted considerable time to examination
of the Columbia at a point between
Vt'ashougal and Lacamas. where sound
ing proved that very satisfactory condi
tions exist for construction of a bridge.
Thin point would be more economical for
erection and maintenance of a bridge than
the location at Vancouver, but other ad
vantages possessed at the latter location
haw boon understood to be regarded as
outwolghlng the upper location. However,
there are well-informed men upon the
question of the north-bank road who de
clare that the bridge will be built at tht
upper point. The engineering work was
prosecuted in that locality again during
My and June, and should the location be
chosen It would In no wise materially af
fect tho romalndor of tho route Into Port
land, except that It would follow down
the south bank of the stream to the
peninsula, and the Ptujet Sound line

"Weight of announced information seems
to favor the route some distance from
the stream on the north side, to avoid a
line of flood interference, and either en

from the Blurock tract, already owned,
or by a dlfforent route further to the
north and west.

Three candidates for the Republican
nomination for Congress In the First Dis

other aspirants seem to have -withdrawn
voluntarily or to have been eliminated.
The three are: S. B. Huston, of HUls-

I. Vawter, of Mcdford, have announced
that he will stay out of the race for pri

L. J. Simpson, of North Bend, has not
yet seen his way clear to become a candl

Ashland, do not appear to have developed
much support; and Blnger Hermann, in
cumbent, does not seem In a good post
tion to wage an effective campaign, un
less the opposition to him shall be split
up into many camps. If Hermann should
run again for the nomination, the oppo
sition of three candidates would probably
work In his favor.
Moores and Tooze are striving in the
same county. Marlon, while Huston is
working from Washington County, where
he has the Republican elements well unit
ed for his .support. Huston feels safe in
his own county, and has carried the war
outside the Washington boundaries into
counties like Yamhill, Polk, Benton and
Lane. He "has been canvassing jthe dis
trict rather thoroughly In person, and has
made frequent trips up and down. Tooze
and Moores are having a keen fight in
Marion, and. in the adjoining- counties like
Clackamas and unn.
W. L Vawter hesitated some time over
the question of -entering the race- Itwas
announced from his camp a month or s6
ago that he would not be a candidate if
Hermann should run. and now unofficial
information has drifted In from Southern
Oregon that his business Interests will
keep him out. The same- Intelligence has
been wafted from North Bend, Coos
County, where L. J. Simpson has had a
boom. George W. Wright, of Albany, Is
a candidate, but has not rallied to his
support all of the political elements of
his county. I. H. Bingham, of Eugene,
member of the Lower House of the Legis
lature, had a boom. during last Winter's
session of the lawsmlths, and for a time
was considerably talked of, but he has
decided not to be a candidate. E. Hofer,
of Salem, for a time had the bee In his
bonnet, but has deafened his ears to the
buzz and is boosting for Tooze.

for necessary .preliminaries. But the dismis
sal of these charges against these two min
isters la only another chapter In this dis
graceful church troubte.
The charges against T. E. Elliott practl-
cally cover the charges brought against me !
and the testimony given In my trial was J
aocezolble' to conference. I
Ten of the best and most active members
of the Vancouver Methodist Church proved 1
conclusively that T. EL Elliott did teach ,
Unitarian doctrine; that he had "twisted and '
perverted the truth"; that his prayer meetlngn !
were, many of them, "more like circuses 1
than anything else." I
C. C. Gridly. chairman of the board of
trustees; Rufus Firestone, trustee; Air.' Tor- j
gerson, janitor of the church for two years, !
all testified that the seating capacity of the
church had only been Increased to about 30, I
whereas T. E. Elliott had, from the pulptt.
and twice through Ntje bulUtln called the :
Helper, stated that it had been Increased
100 and 130, and had also extended his j
hand toward the north tier of seats and said: I
"All thftse are extra, seata" In the face j
of all this evidence that I had to substantiate !
every statement I had made in regard to T. I
E. Elliott and his teachings, a verdict of
guilty was pronounced upon me.
That T. E. Elliott has preached doctrines
contrary to the discipline of the Methodist
Church la known by hundreds of people of
this city. That he has been guilty of out
bursts of temper, notably In the Sundav
school and prayer meetings, and sa frlarhtened
the children that some of them have refused
to attend the Sunday school In fact has
done such Injury to the school that many of
Its members have expressed their belief that
It will take years to overcome the evil effects
of his" -words and action is well known also.
T. E Elliott's conduct in connection with
my trial when he. in collusion with the elder.
selected the Jury to try me from his followers,
thus depriving me of a fair trial; his collusion
again with the elder in his effort to make
me pay the court expenses when he after
wards acknowledged that he knew the church
should pay them all the Ume, reveal the
character of the man.
It is plain that the hasty action of the
conference was deemed necessary In order
to prevent a thorough Investigation of these
tacts, and save the church from deep dis
grace. A mistaken effort. These charge against
these men were preferred by honest upright men
and women, who were strictly in tho line
of duty when they endeavored to expose
and bring to light such outrages as have been
perpetrated against me and save the church
from the dreadful results of a continuation
of such leadership.
The cry that the charges were a surprise
to the parties concerned is a false one, as Dr.
Landen had placed in his bands a copy of
tho charges against Elliott In July and could
have called a committee In Vancouver to In
vestigate them. As to himself, be should
have known the discipline sufficiently well
to understand that he has been making hlmoelf
liable to charges for months.
That Dr. Landen has been guilty of malad
ministration, consisting of partisan, corrupt
and negligent administration, can be shown
by his letters to myself and counsel, and
can be proved by witnessed. His story, as
given In the papers, as to how he came
to help Elliott select the jury does not
either exhonerate blm or show him in a happy
light. If he was to Ignorant of the laws
of his church as to think it was his duty
to help defraud me of my rights, he is not
fit to be a presiding elder of any district.
The discipline plainly forbids the preacher
in charge to select a Jury or committee when
he is a party to the trial.
Dr. Landen appointed X. SL Temple as
presiding of fleer over the court which tried
me. and then Instructed him so be con
fessed at his own trial at Everett "not to
allow the case to be dismissed, no matter
whst reason might be presented." thua forcing
his subordinate to a certain line of conduct
regardless of law or justice.
This same Mr. Temple, who was merely,
as we believe, a tool In the elder's hands,
alro refused to recognise the law of tne
church which says that "if when an accused
member comes to trial he makes so denial
of having made the statements aa charged,
but asserts and proposes to prove that the
statements were true In every particular
(which was precisely my position), he assumes
the burden of proof ana may be permitted
to open and close, throwing the accuder on
Had I been allowed my rights In accord
ance with this law. Rev. Mr. Elliott would
hare been forced to take the witness stand.
As it was,he even refused to Identify his own
church bulletin, the Helper, which he knew
contained a damaging statement by himself.
The. discipline provides that any persons
feeling themselves wrongfully condemned may
appeal to a court composed of triers of appeal.
As the verdict against me was considered by
myself and friends as an outrare. in the face
of the evidence given, my counsel gave Im
mediate notice of an appeal.
Dr. Landen called three several courts of
the triers, and as many tiroes postponed them
in order to compel me 'to pay the expenses
which the court had ruled should be met by
the church, thus relegating to himself the
power to annul the decision of the court, and
decide points of law in regard to the evidence
or testimony, which had been . left In vio
lation of all law and Justice in the custody
of the prosecution. He also gave mo notice
that he had remanded my case for a new
trial and tried to compel - me to recognlzw
such ruling, in defiance of the law and usage
of the church in regard to the tight of appeal.
At both the trial and court of appeal. Arnold.
ytb counsel for the prosecution, was permitted
jby Both Temple and Landen to utter the most
slanderoca falsehoods In regard to me in
utter violation of the law which forbids the
introduction of foreign subjects not Included
In the evidence.
Nothing shows more conclusively the animus
of the whole ocandalous business than the
fact that, although the presiding elder knw
of the blackmailing petition and the spirit
of- malice and evil that prompted Its cir
culation, yet bs sanctioned it by recognising
it. He well knew also that the woman who
signed the charges, and the promoter of the
petition, Mrs. H- "W. Arnold, were on and
the same, and also that ihs bad been obliged
to spend weeks, perhaps months. In order to
carry out her plot against me. It was proved
at the trial that she had said: "If I could
think of any way in which to gt Mrs. M. L.
T. Hidden out of the church. I would do it."
The elder was informed of the spirit which
dominated this affair. Discretion Is allowed
him in the recognition of charges, when
it Is apparent that the motive which prompts
them Is unworthy.
To find that wicked and malicious persons
may Inaugurate it system of persecution, and
be upheld by the highest authorities of the
church. Is cntte a blow to one's faith In the
Integrity of the church.
For weeks I have been obllred to see
all kinds of statements In the capers In regard
to my trial. It has been no light thing
to se myself, branded in -flamiag headlines
as & liar and slanderer before . the world,
especially at the conclusion of s. trial in
which I had been completely vindicated.
I feel that I owe it to myself and family
to make this statement to the press, in regard
to my experiences; and the state of affairs
generally. Here in Vancouver, I know that I
have the sympathy and confidence of all
right-thinking people. I have bea Idealised

' while I was regularly working at nay

habits of eating and drinking, and finally
found that my appetite was fickle, a had
taste lingered In my mouth, my nerves

a severe chill would seizo mo. I became
alarmed at my condition nnd, having

affair to the verdict of my fellow-citizens.
Since writing the above, word has come
to me that Dr. D. L. Rader, who received
my confidence and posed as my friend and
adviser from the beginning of thlo trouble,
went over to the enemy at the Puget Sound
conference, defending Dr. Landen in his trial
there, thus upholding Dr. Linden's actions and
rulings on the very points which he had pre
viously condemned In the hearing of myself,
my counsel and others, even using the knowl
edge he had obtained In eonfldenee. against
me. I telegraphed Dr. Rader to act as coun
sel for me In the Elliott case, and followed
the telegram by a letter of explanation way
the witnesses could not reach Everett, and
asked for a postponement of the trials. Mr.
Blrdsell also telegraphed, asking for a post
ponement in order to send depositions.
This conduct on the part of Dr. Rader
la but another evidence of the character of the
enemy with whom I have to do. I need
make no comment on this last revelation.
