Powerful Steam Shovels Used
NEEDvSCORES OF LABORERS
Lou Water In Snake Illver Retarded
Progress and Difficulty Has
Been Experienced in Se-
curing Workmen. -
Work on the Riparia-Lcwiston branch
of the O. R. & N. Is beingpushed as rap
idly as possible. In the face of somewhat
adverse conditions, and at the present
tlmethree miles of the roadbed have been
entirely finished, whH'e-rails .have Teen
laid for two miles of -that distance. The
rough work has been done for the greater
part of the way between Rlp'arla ''and
Lewiston, while .the survey has been
opened for the entire length of the -line.
Today two new 90-ton steam shovels
will be started -to -work by the contract
ors, one at Rlparia and the other about
13 miles up the Snake River. Both, of
these shovels were recently purchased at
Marion. O., and have been waiting' for
some time for the river to reach such
a stage that they could be taken up to
the place where their services are re
quired. Besides, these two shovels the
company npw has another large one at
work further up the line.
For the transportation of the shovels
from one place to another along the line
of the grade, the engineers have Just built
a large barge 60 feet in width by 160 feet.
in length.- This barge cost more than
$4000, and will be uied throughout the
construction work, as the shovels are
too heavy and cumbersome to be loaded
upon and unloaded from the steamers
plying the upper river.
There are now approximately 600 mon
employed In the construction work, and
during the past Summer the contractors
have been having difficulty in lindlng la
borers. Now that the harvest work is
done and men are more plentiful, it Is
the Intention of those in charge of the
work to increase the force until from
loOO to ISOO will be employed.
The entire line from Iewlston to Rlpa
ria was to have been completed by April
1. but, owing to the low stage of the
Snake River, which Interfered with or
prevented the transportation of construc
tion tools and material for four or five
weeks, the end of the task will be put
off for about that length of time. It is
now expected by the engineers in charge
that the last spike will be driven between
the first and the middle of May.
The work Is being helped along In some
measure by the existing grade, made some
live years ago, parts of which are still
Intact. Owing to the fact, however, that
the new survey diverges from the old In
many places. In order that a hlgh-ppced
line could be constructed, not so much
of the old grade could be utilized as
would otherwise have been the case.

The terminal tracks of the Hill lines laid
on private property are exempted from

1 HON. CHARLES B. MOORES. OF MARION COUNTY. j
Come hither, brothers and sisters, while we endeavor to torture the
long-sufforing Queen's English Into yielding up a few lustrous contribu
tions to our land's literature. My purpose on this exalted occasion is to
toll you what I don't know about Charles B. Moores.
According ta all the misinformation I have been able to annex, Mr.
Moores sneaked Into being in the state that Joe Folk made famous. He
was quite young at the time of his birth, but has since got over It to the
extent of about 55 Summers. At the age of half-past-three he took his
parents by the hand and hit the trail for Oregon.
Moores' ancestors are so entangled with the history of this state that
one can scarcely wander back three paces along the corridors of time
without bumping Into great-great-grandfather, or some other branch of
the genealogical tree.
Our subject's assertion that he has Irish blood in his veins Is fully
substantia tod by the singular grace with which he holds public office. His
zeal for the people's welfare has led him to accept at different times, the
office of Councilman of Salem, trustee of "Willamette University. Speaker
bf the Oregon House of Representatives, shortstop in Al Crossman's la
comparable baseball nine, and Register of the Land Office at Oregon City.
In addition to thus bunch' of fame, Mr. Moores Is also credited with hav
ing, aided by some black paint and a brush, and in tho Interest of art, con
verted Dr. Towers' white mare Into a zebra. A few of Moores detractors
maintain that this honor rightfully belongs to W. D. Fenton. but the evi
dence rests conclusively with the former.
In his candidacy for the Congressional nomination. Moores has an
nounced In unequivocal terms that he favors deeper water and a porcelain
bottom for every river and harbor In the state. The citizens of Coos
Bay, Ncstucca, Tillamook. Yaqulna and Alsea. appreciating his noble
stand, have drawn up resolutions Indorsing him In the most enthusiastic
manner. Each of these future metropolises has received positive assurance
that Congressman Moores' ' first official duty will be to make It the lending
port -of the NorthwcSt.
Moores is a graduate of Willamette, Pennsylvania and Michigan Uni
versities. The way he loots the alphabet In order o represent his various
titles and degrees is absolutely Inhuman.
Tho future Congressman (perhaps) has but one vice, that of attending
pioneer reunions, state fairs and alumni banquets. In the accompanying
masterpiece I have assassinated him In the act of presiding over one of
the latter. HARRY MURPHY.

not pay $50 for the support of his wife
and two children before 12 o'clock to
day to the Clerk of the State Circuit
Court, he will be committed to the
County Jail for contempt of court.
Judge Frazer made this declaration
yesterday ufternoon, after hearing ar
guments of attorneys for. the wife, Mrs.
Betslc Goldstein, on a motion for ali
mony, and hearing the evidence of a
number of witnesses. A certificate of
deposit In a local bank in favor of
Goldstein, not yet due, which was In
possession of Mrs. Goldstein, was
turned over to the Court Clerk, to be
held for her benefit. Goldstein said he
had. tried to borrow $50. and said M.
Kutner, Ben Klegman. 51. Ostrow and
L. Ryan had all refused him. Wit
nesses contradicted this statement, and
said Goldstein had readily borrowed
$150 on one occasion. Goldstein also
said his wle had J 1000 in a safety-deposit
vault, which she denied, and said
that In April last she gave hlnvJSOO

Judge Frazer was inclined to the be
lief that the certificate of deposit for
$200 represented a part of this $o00.
Addressing- Goldstein, the court said:
'I think you can borrow money if you
want to, and I believe that you have
money. You must pay $50 Into court
by 12 o'clock tomorrow for the support
of your wife and children or I will
commit you to Jail for contempt. There
has always been some question of the
right of a court to do this in a enrse
of this kind, but In the present In
stance I think the court would be
justified in taking such a step, and I
think the court has the authority, lou

dren, and if you do not pay $50 .into
court by 12 o'clock tomorrow, I will

SUIT M 11 BILL
G. W. FARRIER, PLUMBER, SUES
FOR FEE FOR FIXING PIPE.
W. I. Bnrtlctt and M. E. Palmer, De
fendants, Contend That the
Leak Was Xot Mended.
A plumbing bill for $7 was the basis
of a suit tried before Judge George
yesterdny, and the evidence was so
conflicting that the case wa!s con
tinued until today for further testi
mony. The plaintiff was G. W. Far
rier, a plumber, doing business at
Montavllla, and W. I Bartlett and M.
E. Palmer the defendants.
Farrier contends that nearly a year
ago he repaired a leaky pipe so that
water would not drip under a sink,
and run out onto the kitchen floor. He
testified that he removed walnscottlng;
which was tongued and grooved, and
to do so and make a neat Job. sawed
the tongue oft one of the boards, and
after taking It out replaced it in good
style. Farrier said he found the coupling-
cracked, and replaced It with a
new one. He said the job was well
The defendants contended that the
leak continued, and that they did not
believe Farrier ever made the repair
at all. Farrier said there was no
further leak, but that water splashed
from the sink and g6t under it because
there was no splashboard. The de
fendants asserted that there was al
ways a splashboard, and Farrier said It
was put there after this trouble com
menced, and that this -was evident, be
cause the wall behind It Is hard-finished,
which would not have been the
case If the splashboard- was put in
when the house was built. To further
complicate matters, In February last
the plpe'frozc and was taken out and
replaced. This was after Farrier's Job
was done, so It cannot be seen by the
