END OF STRIKE
Coastwise Trade Paralyzed
as Result of Sailors'
OWNERS FIRM IN REFUSAL
Oceanic Steamship Company Latest
to Combine Against Request of
Sailors' Union and Notice
.. of lockout Given.
BAN FRANCISCO, June 7. That the
lockout which now ties up the shipping
on the San Francisco water front is not
to cease for some time is evident from
the action taken by the Oceanic Steam
ship Company today. The company sent
notice to the sailors, firemen and cooks'
and waiters' unions that the agreement
entered Into between these unions and
the company, which regulates wages and
conditions of work, will be abrogated
July 6. This notice was given in accord
ance with a mutual understanding where
iby notice of a strike or lockout must be
Kiven 30 days before action is taken. The
.business of the Pacific Coast Steamship
Company in this port is now entirely at a
Neither Vessel Clears.
The State of California, belonging to
this company, was to sail today at 10
A. M. for San Diego, and the Curacaoa
was to sail for Mextcart ports. Neither
vessel cleared, and many passengers who
had engaged passage aboard them had
their money refunded. Captain Wallace,
of the Pacific Coast Steamship Company,
stated that no men are now working
at their wharves, and that they are not
receiving freight. Not only the long
shoreman on their dock have been laid
off. but also the sailors, cooks, waiters
and firemen on the State of California,
the City of Fuebla, the Curacaoa and the
iBonlta. which are now In this port. The
rarlflc Mall Steamship Company, which
yesterday iHid off 150 longshoremen at
the mail nock., took back enough men to
day to finish- the loading of the New
port, which is to sail to Panama and
v-way puda, No work is being done on the
' Will Try to End Trouble.
The executive committees of the steam
ship arbitration and the United Shipping
Transportation Association met today to
appoint a committee named by the City
Front Federation. When these two com
mittees meet an effort will be made to
put an end to the trouble, which has crip
pled the shipping business.
EFFECT BADLY FELT HERE
Only One Local Vessel Likely to
As a result of the sailors' strike now in
effect at San Francisco. Portland is
threatened with a practical cessation of
most of the local coast-wise traffic. As
fast as the steam schooners and vessels
belonging to the Shippers' Association ar
rive at the Bay City they are taken over
to Oakland and tied up for the present,
and. according to the operators, the ves
sels will remain tied up until the sailors
reconsider their demands.
Yesterday the steamers Barracouta and
Oosta Rica reached San Francisco from
Portland and were almost immediately
relegated to the anchorage of the tied-up
craft, and. according to the owners, they
will remain there until the strike is ended.
Kvery effort was used by the two fac
tions to reach an amicable agreement in
the past two years, as the present strike
has been threatening during this period.
The steamship companies comprising the
shipping association on the Pacific Coast
absolutely refuse to consider the demands
of the sailors, and have elected to tie up
their boats sooner than grant the slight
est concession to the strikers, and on
this account the shipping of the Coast la
Shipping men along -the water front who
are well versed in the causes of the strike
state that they have no idea when it may
be ended, and in the meantime are hoping
for the best, although the situation is
Of all tho steam craft plying from Port
land to San Francisco and way ports, the
Alliance, of the Gray Steamship Com
pany, which is operated between Portland
and Coos Bay, is the only vessel not likely
to be temporarily tied up. The reason for
the continuance of the Alliance on her
regular run is on account of her being a
mall carrier, and this precludes her being
tied up by a strike. She is the regular
mall boat between Portland and Coos Bay
The steamer Breakwater, which arrived
with a light cargo from San Francisco
yesterday, is likely to be tied up here
without any effort being made to take her
ion the return trip. While there is no cer
tainty of this happening, persons connect
ed with the company operating the craft
are of the opinion that she will be laid up
here until the strike may be settled.
The steamer - Roanoke sailed for San
Francisco last evening, and is slated to
be laid off immediately on her arrival at
Unless one side or the other relents very
shortly, freight is expected to congest to
an alarming extent in the local ware
houses, for the operation of the steam
vessels along the coast is necessary to
relieve the situation.
CHESTER TO BE RAISED.
Sunken River Craft Will Be Re
paired at Castle Rock.
CASTLE ROCK. Wash., June I. (Spe
cial.) The steamer Chester, of the
Kellogg line, which was sunk last Sat
urday when it was rammed by a large
log. is lying in shallow water near
Olequa bridge. Captain Orrin Kellogg
lias arrived, here to superintend the
work of raising and repairing the craft.
The Bteamer Northwest Is assisting in
the work of floating the Chester, and
as soon as floated she will be brought
here for repairs. All the freight on the
boat. Including J. C. Ainsworth's large
automobile, has been safely transferred
to the shore.
GRACE DOLLAR TIED UP.
Almost Entire Crew Walks Ashore
In Response to Instructions.
ABERDEEN, Wash., June 7. (Special.)
The tie-up of the steamer Grace Dollar
was made more effective this morning,
when the cooks, waiters and firemen came
ashore. They took this action in answer
to telegraphic instructions received from
John Carney, secretary of the Firemen's
Union; Eugene Steele, secretary of the
Cooks' Union, and A. Furuseth, secretary
of the Seamen's Union. There remain
aboard only the master, the mate and
second mate and,, chief engineer. The
men have something like J300 due them
from the owners.
The captain has been trying to place
himself in communication with his own
ers, but has thus far been unable to reach
them. If, after a reasonable length of
time, the money due is not paid, the ves
sel will be libeled. However, this course
of action will probably not be compelled.
. . Steamboats In Collision.
PORTLAND, Me., June 7. The steamers
City of Bangor and City of Rockland
were in collision near Monhegan this
morning. The City of Bangor was con
siderably damaged, but managed to reach
this port In safety. The City of Rock
land was hardly damaged at all, and pro
ceeded on her way. None of the passen
gers were injured. The boats are operat
ed by the same company.
Towing Drydock to Manila.
MANILA, June 7. The naval tug Pesca
taqua has been ordered from here to meet
the floating drydock Dewey at Singapore
and assist in towing it to this port.

The steamer Alliance is scheduled to
leave for Coos Bay this evening. This is
practically the only coastwise vessel not
affected by the sailors' strike.
The Italian bark Erasmo surprised her
charterers by arriving at the mouth of
the Columbia yesterday, as she was not
expected for ten days yet. She made the
trip across the Pacific in 30 days.

LAW TO GOVERN COURTING
Strange Proposal by Member of
Louisiana Legislature. -
CHICAGO, June 7. A dispatch to the
Tribune from New Orleans says:
T. Spence Smith, of Rapides, yester
day introduced into the State Legisla
ture a bill to regulate marriage con
tracts and prevent race suicide. The
bill applies only to whites, and pro
vides: It shall be unlawful for any young
man to attempt to court any young
woman before he is 24 years of age.
Before making such attempt he shall
inform the parents or guardian of the
woman he proposes to court of his in
tention to do so.
He shall also make affidavit before
a Justice of the Peace that his court
ship will be in good faith and for the
purpose of trying to convince the
young woman that it will be profitable
for her to marry him.
It shall be unlawful for widowers
over the age of 40 years to attempt to
court any woman under the age of 18
beyond the confines of the parish of
After the passage of the act all chil
dren born legally to married people In
this state shall be raised and educated
at public expense. All boy children
shall be sent to the State University at
Baton Rouge, and all girl children to
the State Normal School at Natchi
toches. An appropriation of $17,000,000 to
carry out this education feature is pro
vided for in the bill.
Title to Road Is in Doubt.
EUGENE, Or., June 7. (Special.)
The Blue River road, closed some time
ago by the owners of the Lucky Boy
mine, is still obstructed. A committee
of citizens from the Merchants' Pro
tective Association today asked the
County Court to purchase the road for
the county, so that it might be opened
to travel. The court will. , upon the
presentation of a petition from the
people along the road, take the mat
ter up of declaring this a county road.
There seems to be considerable
doubt as to the right of the county
to buy this road, as It Is claimed the
Lucky Boy people have nothing to
sell. There is no question that the
miners have spent several thousand
dollars in building the road and the
price they ask, $3000, Is quite reason
able, but they seem to have no title.
Course In Naval Architecture.
SEATTLE, Wash., June 7. Marine en
gineering and naval architecture will be
added to the University of Washington
engineering curriculum in the very near
future, the work being gradually added
until a complete course in naval construc
tion can be offered. Professor Everett O.
Eastwood, formerly head of the marine
department at Lehigh University, who is
now dean of the college of mechanical
engineering at the University of Wash
ington, says that the work will be done
on a small scale next year, and that the
year following he hopes to be able to
offer a complete course.

ASKS BIG DAMAGES
Pacific Mail Company Is the
SUES INMAN, POULSEN CO.
Honolulu Corporation Wants $155,
000 From Portland Concern
for Alleged Breach of
The second trial of the suit of the Pa
cific Mill Company, of Honolulu, against
Inman. Poulsen & Co., for $155,000 dam
ages for breach of contract, was begun
yesterday before Judge Cleland and a
Jury in the State Circuit Court. The suit
was begun April 10, 1902, and the com
plaint recites that in the year 1900 Inman,
Poulsen & Co. entered into an agreement
with the Pacific Mill Company to take
stock in the latter company, and to in
crease its capital to $50,000 from $12,000.
Inman, Poulsen & Co. were to take $15,000
of the increase, and to ship Oregon pine
lumber to the Honolulu market. The Pa
cific Mill Company people say they ob
tained railroad facilities, sold stock and
did everything required to carry out the
agreement. Two cargoes of lumber were
sent to Honolulu by Inman, Poulsen &
Co., but that firm refused to permit the
Paclflcjtfill Company to handle the car
goes. Inman, Poulsen & Co. sent agents
to Honolulu, and Emmett May. president
of the Pacific Mill Company, went to San
Francisco to Interview Johan Poulsen.
The Pacific Mill Company expected to do
a big business in Oregon lumber, and its
members allege heavy losses for the
breach of contract.
Inman, Poulsen & Co. as a defense con
tend that the scheme was a failure; that
the Pacific Mill Company did not have
the facilities alleged, did not sell the in
crease in stock for cash, as promised;
that the company was insolvent, and
many other things. When the case was
tried two years ago, 17 days' time was
consumed in taking testimony. Judge
Sears granted a nonsuit, and the Supreme
Court granted a new trial. Ralph Dunl
way appears as attorney for the Pacific
Mill Company, and Cake & Cake and J.
T. McKee are the attorneys for the de
fense. MAY NOT PROSECUTE SUIT
If Husband Behaves, Mrs. Kelly
Will Not Seek Divorce.
Mrs. Fred C. T. Kelly is not to has
ten divorce proceedings. If her hus
band does not behave himself she will
obtain a divorce from him in the State
Circuit Court. A month ago she caused
his arrest on a warrant Issued in the
Municipal Court for beating her, and
the same day she sued him for a dis
solution of the matrimonial bonds.
Kelly several days later pleaded guil
ty in the State Circuit Court, and
Judge Sears, who does not believe in
the whipping post law, fined him $50.
Deputy District Attorney Haney, how
ever, informed the court that the of
fense was not a serious one, and that
Kelly's wife did not want him whipped.
Mrs. Kelly paid the lino and her hus
band was released. She next declared
that she did not want a divorce. Yes
terday her attorney, John F. Logan,
took an order of default against Kelly
for want of an answer. Mrs. Kelly
will hold the case over him, and if he
does not continue to be a good hus

Goldie R. Ellis Is Granted Divorce
by Judge Frazer.
The hearing of the divorce suit of Goldie
R. Ellis against Joseph T. Ellis, was con

and the divorce was granted. The defend
ant made a good defense to his wife's
charges of outrageous offenses, but the
court concluded that the burden of proof
was with the plaintiff, and that she was
entitled to a legal separation. Mrs. Ellis
is only 5 years old. The litigants were
married in January last.
"I believe the testimony as told by this
little child-wife," said Judge Frazer, in
rendering his decree. "This little girl
told the truth, if I was ever able to tell
when a witness told the truth. She is not

committed to the insane asylum. Several
days ago he visited the office of Dr. A. J.

RAILROADS MAKE REDUCTIOX
OF NINE PER CENT.
It Is Thought Manufacturers and
Carriers Will Find the Tariff
New minlmums on lumber for shipment
East have been complied by the railroads
that are about 9 per cent less than the
minlmums recently announced. The new
minlmums are the result of the confer
ence between the railroads and the lum
ber manufacturers of the Northwest last
week at St. Paul, when objections were
urged to the minlmums proposed, on the
ground that shippers could not load many
classes of lumber to the minlmums re
quired to secure low lumber tariffs.
The figures arrived at are the result
of the conference between shippers and
railroads, and are thought to be satisfac
tory to both. Lumbermen will make prac
tical experiments by loading cars of dif
ferent lengths with different classes of
lumber, in order to demonstrate whether
the minlmums will be practical. They
will not become effective until July 15.
The minlmums are based on cubical ca

TELLS TRUTH ABOUT OREGON
Harrlman Railway System Issues
a New Advertising Pamphlet.
Taking for his motto the statement that
"The trouth about Oregon is good
enough," Rlnaldo M. Hall, advertising
agent for the Harrlman lines, has Just
Issued the 1906 edition of "Oregon, Wash
ington and Idaho," the annual advertis
ing publication of the O. R.' & N. and
Southern Pacific. The new pamphlet is
a handsome one of 88 pages, profusely
illustrated with new and interesting pho
tographs, showing the industrial and
scenic wonders of the three states.
Mr. Hall is the author of the text and
has drawn an attractive picture of the
Pacific Northwest, but he believes it is not
overdrawn. Following an introductory
chapter, Mr. Hall gives attention to the
industries of the three states. Statistics
of production are quoted and In a num
ber of Instances the name and address of
the producer is given, so that the reader
may write and verify the statements of
the book and secure additional informa
tion. Ten pages are devoted to fruitgrowing,
and the fact is brought out that Oregon
was first in foreign and domestic mar
kets in 1905, Hood River Newtowns selling
in London in March for $5.43 a bushel
and Cornice pears, raised at Medford,
bringing an average of $6.80 a box in New
York in October. Other industries of
the three states are also given full ex
ploitation. B. E. Duncan Has Resigned.
B. E. Duncan, who has been chief clerk
in the freight office of the New York
Central for some time, has resigned, and
his place will be taken by F. L. Baker,
who was formerly employed in the O. R.
& N. car supply department. The change
will take place June 15. Mr. Duncan is
well known along . Railroad Row. and his
many friends will regret to see him leave
the city. He owns a valuable fruit or

It Is Dangerous to Neglect a Cold.
How often do we hear it remarked: "It's
only a cold," and a few days later learn
that the man is on his back with pneu

not be disregarded. Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy counteracts any. tendency of a
cold to result in pneumonia, and has
gained its great popularity and extensive

WILL LOAD LUMBER
Another Large English Tramp
Steamer Coming Here.
IS THE MANCHESTER PORT
Demand for Building Material In
Orient Causes Great Activity In
Local Shipping Circles.
Dulwich Reaches Port.
Another large tramp steamship has been
added to the local lumber-carrying fleet
to take the products of Oregon forests
and mills to the Orient. The latest addi
tion is that of the British steamer Man
chester Port, which is under charter to
Balfour, Guthrie & Co. to load lumber
The Manchester Port is practically a
new vessel, having been built in England
in 1904. During the two years she has
been afloat she has been engaged in tne
tramp trade. Her trip to this city will be
her initial voyage on the Pacific Ocean,
her previous operations having been con
fined to the vicinity of Bombay and Col
ombo. She is at the latter port at pres
ent. The Manchester Port is a steel vessel of
2662 net tons register, and she can carry
about 3.000,000 feet of lumber. Her cnar
terers are also loading the British steam
ship Tottenham, now in the harbor, and
the aggregate cargoes of both vessels will
be considerably over 6,000,000 feet.
J. J. Moore & Co. have two large steam
ships under charter to take lumber for
the Orient, which are expected to com
mence loading soon. The first of the two
to arrive here was the British steamer
Dulwich, which arrived from Comox and
Wellington last evening.
The Dulwich is a sister ship of the Kll
burn, which finished loading last week,

at the same time, had it not been for
necessary delays to the Dulwich at Co
mox for the purpose of making some
minor repairs. After being repaired she

CAUTION PIANO OWNERS
Word has been received again that,
same as a few years ago, some clever and
gllb-tongued solicitors are calling upon
piano owners, making them believe that
their pianos are "moth-eaten,"' or "rusted
out." and offering, usually for a big
amount of money, to restore them, .and
furthermore, to "moth-proof" and "rust
proof" them. We wish to caution our
patrons again, as we have found from
experience that most of such work is
nothing more nor less than an attempt
to obtain money under false pretenses.
Ring up Exchange 23 for information,
should anyone call on you to "restore" or
"work over" your piano! As a usual
thing, a great deal of harm la done to
pianos by tramp tuners. If you have a
fine piano take no chances. Eilers Piano
