Peace Party Wins Tem
SITUATION IN FREIGHTHANDLERS
The peace party in the union has
won a temporary victory. The union
will, however, remain Arm in Its de
mands for Increased wages.
The Waterfront Federation, con
sisting; of longshoremen, marine en
gineers, grainhandlers and truck
drivers, will take such future action
as shall best advance the cause of
the freighthandlers, with whom they
are affiliated through membership In
the International Longshore, Marine
and Transport Association.
Demands, similar to those turned
down by the Northern Pacific, South
ern Pacific and O. R. & N. a week
ago. will be presented tomorrow and
If refused a strike Is probable.
- The men are thoroughly confident
that their demands will be granted.
In a meeting characterized by cool
ness, and calm deliberation over all
phases of the situation, 150 members of
the local Freighthandlers' Union met at
labor headquarters on Second and Mor
rison streetu yesterday afternoon and de
cided by unanimous ballot to defer a
general walkout until the railroad com
panies had been given another oppor
tunity to grant their request for more
Committee representing the men em
ployed by each of the companies, the
Northern Pacific, the Southern Pacific
and the O. R. & N.. . were instructed to
make formal repetition of the demands
which Jast week were turned down, and
request the officials of these companies
to reconsider their action. The demands
will be presented tomorrow, though they
would have been placed in the com
panies' hands this morning had it not
been Labor Day.
The committees will report the result
of their second mission to the union at
it next regular meeting, next Sunday
afternoon, unless the railroad officials ir
revocably refuse to grant their demands,
in which event the matter may be made

There were a number of radicals pres
ent at the session yesterday who advo
cated calling a general strike at once,
but wiser csmnscl prevailed and after
the matter had been .thoroughly threshed
out the hot-heads fell Into line and in
dorsed the action of their more temperate
Folly of Haste Demonstrated.
That radical action did not result is
largely due to the stand taken at the
meeting by C. O. Young, general or
ganizer, of the American Federation of
Labor, who in his address to the men
demonstrated the folly of unwarranted
haste in precipitating another industrial
upheaval, especially under the conditions
now obtaining in the transportation busi
ness of the Pacific Northwest, conditions
which, he said, if violently disturbed
would mean irreparable loss to shippers
and merchants of the community and
entail needless loss of wages to the mem
bers of the union and affiliated organiza
tions. President Gram, of the Oregon State
Federation of Labor, counseled the men
along similar conservative lines.
A remarkable feature of the meeting
was the utter lack of bitterness of feel
ing toward the railroad officials who have
turned their demands down, the senti
ment being that if the men again pre
sented the issues fairly and squarely to
the officials the latter would meet them
In the same spirit.
There have never been any serious dis
agreements between the local Freight
handlers' Union and the three railroads
doing business in the local . terminal
yards. The men formed their union in
May, 1902, and no particular obstacles
were placed in the way of perfecting the
organization by the railroad companies.
In the Spring of 1903 the union, through
committees chosen for the purpose, ad
dressed a communication to the division
superintendents of the companies, re
questing a certain increase in wages and
The result was a peaceable arrange
ment between the men and their em
ployers whereby, in the case of the
Northern Pacific, a flat raise of wages
of 10 per cent and. in the case of the
Harriman lines, of 15 per cent was grant
ed, that scale being still In effect, save
that the Northern Pacific last week
granted the .men an increase of 6 cents
an hour for overtime, so that they now
receive 20 cents an hour, the same as
raid to their fellow employes of the
All Men Urged to Join.
Yesterday's meeting was called to order
et.3 o'clock, with President William
Hayes in the chair. The first matter
taken- up was the initiation of 13 new
members, followed by general instruc
tions to the members -present to urge
all freighthandlers not now In the union
to affiliate at once, and It is believed
that with a national organizer in the
Held every one of the 300 men engaged
Jn their trade will Join the union before
the next meeting. At present a little
more than 60 per cent of the men are
members of the organization.
After the purpose for which the
meeting; was called had been explained.
General Organizer Young addressed
the men. He said:
"In the present emergency we should
ever remain calm. It is no time for,
nor does the situation demand, a devia
tion from those deep-seated principles
of organized labor which stand for
peace and amity, and for cool deliber
ation, as well as firmness in the face
of whatever crisis may arise. It has
bee,n the wisdom of the greatest labor
leaders of our times to counsel peace
and deplore hasty and ill-auviscd ac
tion, and when their Judgment and
suggestions have prevailed the cause
of unionism has always been advanced;
when they have failed, the opposite
condition has been the Invariable
"My policy has always been, and, in
the exigency you are yourselves called
upon to cope with; at this time, my
best advice is that you do your utmost
to discourage any attempt within your
body to precipitate a strike. From
what I have learned of the situation
here, a walkout is not necessary at
present in order that you may gain
your ends, ror will it be until you have
exhausted all amicable resources.
When that has been done, make haste
slowly, and be sure of each step you
may take that shall lead to an open
rupture with your employers. If you
act on this advice, I am sure you will
gain much more than you would by
any exhibition of intemperate haste
which may result in fatal backset to
Indorsed by President Gram.
With an explanatory statement that
he did not deny the right of the men,
or of organized labor in general, to
strike when the Justice of the cause
demanded such action, Organizer
Young yielded the floor, to President
Gram, amid long applause from the
men. Mr. Young's address seemed to
be the turning point in favor of the
peaceful element, and when Mr. Gram
indorsed all that his predecessor had
said and had commended the work
which the committees which had wait
ed on the railroad officials had al
ready done, there were shouts of
"question" from all parts of the room.
The meeting then passed the resolu
tion to continue the conference with
the railroad officials with a view to
bringing about a friendly settlement in
the matter of increased wages and the
Secretary Paulinus McDonald of the
organization made the following state
ment regarding the situation after the
"The question of ordering an imme
diate strike was not even considered
at the meeting for the reason that
there is nothing in the present state of
affairs that would warrant the discus
sion of any such step. The men firmly
believe that when we have frankly in
sisted on the companies granting our
request for an Increase it will be
granted without quibble or delay. We
intend to stand pat, but that doesn't
necessarily mean that we are going to
strike, for we are acting on the sup
position that our demands will be
The petition which the union pre
sented to the companies, and which
was turned down, requested that the
wages of the callers and car men be
Increased from $2.20 to $2.50 a Oay,
truckers from $2.10 to $2.35. checkers
from $65 to $75 a month. In view of
the fact that the Southern Pacific
granted advances to San Francisco
and Oakland freighthandlers to $2.50
a day and checkers to $80 a month, the
local men consider that their demands
are eminently Just.

railroad officials have given their final
answer to the second demand of the
Should a strike come, a most serious
blow would fall on the Portland mer
chants and other local shipping inter

at present entirely unable to handle
the business now offered. The lack of
trackage facilities, the congestion of
freight at other points, the forward

Speakers at Closing Session of State

The State Spiritual Association held an

Abington building, 1064 Third street, yes
terday, beginning at 11 A. M. The serv
ices were under the direction of Mra.
Sophia B. Seip. state president. A spe
cial song service was rendered. The
president delivered an invocation and
music, both vocal and instrumental, was
rendered, after which visitors were in
troduced who made ten-minute ad
dresses. The tenor of these addresses was that
the present year will mark the com
mencement of the most stupendous
change in the history of this planet; that
the mental chaos and physical disturb
ances which will result thereafter .will
be but the birth agonies of a new dis
pensation to the world at large. The
speakers contended that the present dis
turbances and those they prophesied to
come during the nex,t four months, are
but the death-throes of the old civiliza
tion. To prove .this they cited the alleged fact
that the Gulf Stream is now 400 miles out
of its former course, and other things
pointing to a change of axis for the
earth. This world-cleansing storm will
appear to the masses to be the end of
the world, but will be, in reality, only
a preparation for the brotherhood of
man and a higher conception or con
sciousness of life.
Dawn of Better Times.
The prophesy took a brighter turn
when the speakers referred to the great
progress they expected to come during
the coming yearr when inventions far

to the attention of the city authorities
there was considerable discussion as to

Dr. E. F. Coulter. "The past has been
as a Winter season, but the Winter is
over and the Spring is at hand. The
new dispensation . now dawning will be
the blossoming of good throughout the
land. Portland is a great spiritual cen
ter, and will be a center of -the hew
awakening, which must have its origin
on the Pacific Coast, where the people
are receptive and progressive."
At the close of the morning service a
progressive drill began, and the guests
were conducted to the banquet hall by
Mrs. Driscoll and Mrs. Haverlon. where
the wants of the inner being were ca
tered to by Mrs. Packlngton.
Promptly at 2:30 P. M. a musical pre
lude opened the afternoon services, after
which Dr. Coons, recently appointed
state organizer, addressed the meeting
on "The Sacrednesa of Mediumship." He
advanced particularly broad and optim
istic views. "Everyone who believes in
a life to come," he said, "is a Spiritual
ist, whether he be called Methdoist, Pres
byterian, Catholic, Spiritualist ' or what
ever he be called."
C. A. Reed, who claims to be the
oldest veteran in the work, was called
and addressed the meeting on "Does Our
Labor Pay?" His remarks were sup
plemented by several local Spiritualists.
Special music by Mrs. Caropb'ell and
Professor M. A. Goodnough enlivened the
audience, several speeches were ren
dered and the afternoon sessions came to
a close with the song, "Throw Out the
Night Session Is Held.
Last night at 8 o'clock the closing
session began. Short addresses were
made by Mr. and Mrs. F. E. Coulter and
Ira Taylor. Mrs. Lucy A. Mallory read
an original poem, written expressly for
the sessions of '06. Mrs. Campbell sang
"Christ is Walking on the Waters," Mrs.
Driscoll recited "Rock Me to Sleep,
Mother," to which Mrs. Seip .responded
with a poem composed for the occasion.
The new officers, who were elected Sat
urday night, were installed according to
the usual ritualistic services, and made
the customary addresses. This ended one
of the most successful sessions the State
Association has ever held.
The Spiritualists feel much elated over
the receipt by Mrs. Lucy A. Mallory,
editor of the World's Advanced Thought,
of a portrait of Count Tolstoi, signed
with his autograph and accompanied by
a copy of his publication in German,
"Fur Alle Tage" (For Every Day), which
is a compilation of aphorisms from the
world's literature and contains many
quotations from Mrs. Mallory's paper,
which is published in this city.
The same author recently published two
volumes in Russian, which contain only
aphorisms frorti the World's Advanced
Chinaman in Portland. That was years
ago, before he had been attacked by the
dreaded malady and when he was in
Then signs of leprosy appeared, his ac
quaintances and friends began to shun
him, his business eventually was trans
ferred to other merchants, and old Ray
Baan had to seek living quarters on' the
outskirts of the city. Penniless, without
friends and living a hand-to-mouth ex
istence, deserted by the world and his
own people, and alone, the old man suf
fered without uttering a complaint until
his condition was finally called to the
attention of the City Council.
Several hundred Chinese are to sail
from Tacoma this week, but the Port
land leper will not be among the num
ber. When he goes he will travel alone.
Sixty or 70 Portland Chinese are going
home to die this week, and old Ray Baan
wanted to join them in their Journey to
the fatherland. There were so many ob
jections to the old man's company that
the Influential Chinese here decided that
he should follow later and alone.
But bid Ray Baan is happy now. He's
going home. There is little danger of
his dying in a foreign land, and within
a few weeks he will be among his own
people, on his native soil, with nothing
to do but wait wait for death, the only
relief from leprosy.

Dr. Miller's Cats Are
Fond of Snakes
DR. BYRON K. MILLER, who lives at
Sixteenth and Montgomery streets, is
the owner of three cats that eat snakes.
In fact, the favorite pastime of these
nine-lived animals Is to catch little garter
snakes which live in the grass near Dr.
Miller's residence. The cats will catch a
snake and play with it for half an hour.
Just as other cats do with mice and rats.
After playing with the reptiles until they
get tired the cats eat the tails oft and
leave them to die. The Miller cats are
also fond of grasshoppers and other in
eects, and spend hours every day In catch
ing them. Some day a rattlesnake will
happen along in the Miller neighborhood,
and then there will be something doing
for the Miller cats.
