THE 3IORXIXG OKEGONIAX, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER IV 1906.
IN THE BUY CITY
Orders Are Pouring In to the
Wholesalers Faster Than
They Can Be Filled.
FLURRY SHOWS STABILITY
Trade of the Port Kxceeds All Pre
vious Records, and Customs Au
thorities Are Swamped With
BAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 16. (Special
Correspondence.) With the end of the
car strike, business in San Francisco has
taken a fresh spurt. The activity is even
greater than before the walk out. Hun
dreds of men are at work on the streets
remodeling the company's lines, the de
bris is being removed at a steady pace,
wholesale and retail trade is at flood tide,
and all is serene once more in the city
by the Golden Gate.
A little flurry in financial circles has
served only to demonstrate the stability
in the banking world. The run on the
Hibernia Bank, which has been in prog
ress for almost a week, continues una
bated, but no other institutions have been
affected and the utmost confidence pre
vails. The most pleasing development of the
month has been the resumption of whole
sale trade on a large scale.. The whole
salers for a time were embarrassed by
the railroad tie-up and the consequent
confusion. The manager of the largest
grocery house in the West told the writer
yesterday that orders were now coming
in faster than he could fill them and he
was filling them as rapidly as before the
fire. The demand from the interior of
the state has been enormous and shows
no sign of abatement.
Lively Bidding for School Bonds.
A further indication of the financial
strength of the community came this
week when JfiOO, 00 worth of school bonds
were put on the market in Oakland and
Berkeley for new buildings. The bidding
was spirited among local capitalists. This
was the first issue of bonds placed on the
market since the disaster.
The trade of the port is far greater
than ever before in the history of the
city. It has led to a-congestion which the
custom authorities have as yet been
unable to relieve. A score of men have
been added to the service, but still the
force is far from adequate. Difficulty has
been experienced in the efforts to further
augment the service.
The places must all be filled from the
Federal Civil-Service list and the salaries
provided are so small in comparison with
the wages being paid here in other lines
that the eligible men on the list have re
fused to take tfie positions offered.
Labor Presents Varied Problem.
It was only yesterday that the Custom
House drew on the civil service list-in
an effort to secure an additional packer.
The salary provided is-JTO a month, but
all the men on the--list refused to ac
cept the position as they were all em
ployed at a far higher wage. An. effort
to secure ten extra laborers for the serv
ice this week was unsuccessful.
The question of labor continues to pre
sent interesting and unusual features.
The Western Pacific has begun a vigor
ous campaign in the East to secure 5000
men- to work on its line in California; The
company offers $2 -and J2.25 a day for
unskilled labor, but cannot get men in
this state for that figure.
Circulars are being distributed In East
ern cities in the form of letters of In
troduction to the- company's contractors.
Any man into" whose hands such a circu
lar falls may go to the company's agent
In his city, have the letter signed, and
be provided with transportation and
guaranteed a Job in California.
' Even the messenger boys are reaping
a share of the golden harvest. They now
receive $15 a week In San Francisco and
it is very difficult to secure them even at
that figure. The manager of a concern
which employs hundreds of messenger
boys stated this week that in order to
hold the boys he was devising some plan
of progressive promotion which would ap
peal to their youthful Instincts. Even at
the high wages prevailing, he finds it im
possible to keep enough boys to handle
Moving to Beat the Rent.
Rents have shown no tendency to cease
their upward movement. One friend of
the writer has moved three times to es
cape the advancing rentals. Two weeks
ago he settled in a little flat along the
outer edge of the park and although
paying a stiff rental was happy in the
thought that he was permanently located.
Last Tuesday he greeted the writer with
a laugh as he announced that his land
lord had informed him that his rent
would be raised 300 per cent beginning
with October. , .
The situation had gone to the extreme
of the ridiculous. He is planning to
move again, and moving these days is
npt what it once was. Formerly for a
few dollars one could transport his house
hold goods from one end of the city to
the other, but now the outlay is a larger
It was thought that the completion of
the first relief cottages this week would
put a check to the rent-raising game,
but it has as yet had no effect. Only a
few of the relief cottages have been
completed, and these are set apart for
people who have been dwelling in tents.
It is the intention of the relief board to
complete 8000 cottages for the refugees
by the end of next month.
Buildings Will Cost More.
Of course, the higher cost of labor and
materials will serve to retard building
operations to some extent, but the daily
total of permits continues high. As an
instance of the higher cost of building It'
was pointed out this week that the
handsome H-story Merchants' Exchange
building would require a greater sum for
its restoration than was first figured. The
marble work on the structure originally
cost, two years ago, when the building
was erected, $125,000. There was a salvage
of $25,000 on the stone. The natural con
clusion would be that it could be restored
at a cost of $100,000. However, the low
est bid for the work was $167,000, an in
crease of 67 per cent in two years' time.
Two big real estate transactions this
week indicate a slight depreciation in
property values in the burned district.
The Masonic Temple lot, on the corner of
. Post and Montgomery streets, in the
heart of the barking section, was sold
to Rudolph Spreckels for $750,000. Before
the lire the property was held at $800,000.
It has a frontage of 65 feet on Mont
gomery street and HO feet on Post street.
Miss Cora Jane Flood has leased for a
period of 60 years her holdings at Market
and Ellis streets for a total of $1,750,000.
This is a trifla less than could have been
obtained before the disaster. These two
transactions were in spots of unusual
values. The municipal authorities have at last
bestirred themselves, and have taken
steps to restore the city's buildings. En
gineers have figured that the City Hall
can be restored for $2,400,000. Aa the J
ACT V TY
structure originally cost in excess of $6.-
000,000. the salvage is considerable. In
addition the city has found itself the
owner of a pile of valuable junk made
up of those portions of its buildings which
cannot be used in tneir reconstruction.
This Junk is now being sold at a good
The city authorities have also begun
preparations to widen Dupont street at
a cost of $1,200,000. All this is In the line
San Francisco has demonstrated that it
is still a good theater town. In the old
days, many an Eastern manager turned a
deficit into a fat profit by making the
jump to san Francisco. The circus.
which has been touring the Coast during
the Summer months, had decided to- cut
San ranclsco out, having heard before
leaving the East that the town was
broke. However, at the last minute it
was arranged to play three days here.
At every performance the tent was filled
to capacity an hour before opening time,
and thousands were turned away. It was
the biggest three days' business that any
circus has ever known.
Shoots Himself on Street.
OAKLAND, Sept. 16. D. J. . Powell, a
real estate dealer of Fruitvale committed
suicide last night- by shooting "himself
through the head. Business losses and a
dread of an operation for appendicitis are
believed to have been the cause.
Mr. Powell chose the open street at the
head of Fruitvale avenue as his place of
death. He fired five shots which aroused
the neighborhood. His body was found
on the sidewalk with a revolver clutched

ADAMS CANNOT STAND TRIP
Shoshone Sheriff Will Risk His Pris
oner on Train From Lew is ton.
LEWISTON.. Idaho. Sept. 16. (Spe
cial.). Because he finds - that- Steve
Adams, who has been cooped up in the
state penitentiary for several long
months, is physically unable to with
stand the long overland trip to Wal
lace, Sheriff Sutherland, of Shoshone
County, has decided to run the risk of
a few hours putslde; the state on a
railroad train. Sheriff Sunderland with
Steve Adams is now at Grangeville,
having reached there, late last night.
By telephone from that -city itwas
learned this afternoon that the Sheriff
intends to bring his prisoner 90 miles
overland to this city to divert suspicion
of friends of the defense. Sunderland
in an unguarded moment let out this
afternoon to a newspaper reporter that
instead of taking the . train at Stltes
and making connection in this city
with the Spokane express tomorrow,
the quickest way of reaching the north,
he will come overland and take the
night train, hoping thus to get into
Washington and out again Deiore De
With Sheriff Sunderland and Adams
are E. R. Whitney, warden of the peni
tentiary, and E. P. Johnson, guard.
BARNES WILL BE HANGED
Governor Chamberlain Declines to
Commute Sentence of Murderer.
SALEM, Or.. Sept." 16. (Special.) Gov
ernor Chamberlain has announced that
he will not commute the sentence of
John C. Barnes, and there is now no
doubt but that the condemned man will
be hanged at the State Prison on Tues
day of this week. The Governor has
thoroughly reviewed the testimony in
the case and is convinced that Barnes
is guilty of the crime charged.
The death sentence was pronounced
upon Barnes for the murder of William
Graham, which occurred In Douglas
County last year. . After his conviction
and sentence a petition was circulated
and presented to the Governor, asking
that commutation be granted. Upon the
petition were the names of six of the
Jurymen who brought in the verdict of
guilty. It now appears by their own affi
davits that they were induced . to. sign
by each being made believe all of the
others had agreed to do likewise.
Barnes had been sentenced to serve 20
years in the penitentiary as a penalty
for a criminal assault committed upon
his half sister, but was pardoned in 1891
by Governor- Pennoyer. He had previ
ously served a term for larceny.

the reports pf gold on the Pacific Coast,
in the Spring of 1850 he crossed the plains
to the mines in Eastern. Oregon, and
there found life and property endangered

of the United States and would avail
Itself of them if its own efforts were
unsuccessful, but that naturally it pre
ferred to settle the trouble without in
tervention. Simultaneously with the is
suance of the decree declaring a cessa
tion of hostilities the special Judge in
charge of the cases against the alleged
conspirators in prison and ' prisoners
recently captured, liberated three of
the latter against whom indictments
had been issued.
Meanwhile a warrant was issued
against Felipe Romero, a wealthy
young Cuban, who had been represent
ing the revolutionists In various er
rands to Commander Colwell, of the
United States cruiser Denver, and who
is charged with being the recipient of
communications from the New York
revolutionary Junta. But now that hos
tilities have been suspended it is prob
able no arrest will be made.
According to Commander Colwell, Al
fredo Zayas asked for Immunity aboard
trie Denver, on which he had hoped to
be able to go to the United, States.
. Belligerent Talk Checked.
Previous to this afternoon's develop
ments the situation had about resolved
itself into a condition where the Lib
erals were declaring that if the United
States assisted the administration, they
would fight the intervening forces,
while Moderates were saying if the in
terventionists helped to depose Presi
dent Palma, they would become insur
gents. The cessation of hostilities
has checked such talk altogether.
The new situation was received at the
hotels and clubs with blank surprise
Here it was considered that the arrang
ing of peace without the guarantee of
the United States behind it would be an
unwelcome outcome, it being feared that
the future tranquillity1 of the island
would not be assured. Since the pub
lication of President Roosevelt's letter
here, it has been expected that the
United States would be a strong factor in
arranging for Cuba some better form
of government and a reduction in tariffs
which would bring the cost of living to
a reasonable basis.
Although the opinion on the subject
is very vague tonight, the general con
viction seems to prevail that Secretary
Taft will take a friendly hand In the
negotiations for peace.
Movements of the Insurgents.
No other encounter than that resulting
in the capture of Guanajay was reported
today. Traffic is again impeded on the
Western Railroad. The revolutionists will
not permit repairs to be made on the
Culabazar bridge. The railroad em
ployes who were captured by the revolu
tionists have been released.
Pino Guerra's force has not. yet ap
proached Havana Province. It fs much
depleted and is moving slowly eastward.
Owing to extremely meagre wire facili
ties, little is known concerning the situa
tion in Santa Clara, except that Arroyo
Blanco's . 50 cavalrymen defeated 100
mounted revolutionists belonging .to the
forces of Senor Canizares, ex-speaker of
the House, killing several and capturing
arms, ammunition and supplies. The
Havana defenses continue to be strength
ened. No Basis for Negotiations.
.Vice-President Mendez Capote said
tontght that nothing as yet had been
decided on which to base peace nego
tiations. This was being discussed by
representatives of the Moderates with
Alfredo Zayas, but the result probably
will not be made public until a further
conference has been held. He said by
the time of . the . arrival of Secretary
Taft it was hoped that a permanent ad
justment of the difficulties would be
arranged and ready for Mr. Taft's ap
proval. He had no thought of not se
curing the friendly informal approval
of the United States to the settlement
of the difficulties, since he realized
this was necessary to Cuba's permanent
peace and prosperity."
Much doubt is expressed as to
whether the- rebels will accept peace
proposals,- which do not Include elec
itons for places of. Senators and Con
gressmen elected last December.
Made Prisoners on Surrendering
The Mayor of Guanajay arrived in
Havana tonight. He said to the Asso
ciated Press that he, with SO police,
took refuge in the City Hall, which was
then surrounded by 300 men belonging
to the forces of Carillo and Campos
Marquetti. The revolutionists left the
town for a brief period, and in the in

WASHINGTON, Sept. 16. The Cuban
Legation tonight received a cablegram
from the Government announcing the de
cree suspending hostilities. The message
was very brief and read:
"Announce to the Government that the
President has today Lssued a decree, or
dering the suspension of hostilities. It
is expected that the revolutionists will
do the same."
Arturo Padro, of Almeida, the Cuban
Charge d'Affaires, immediately notified
Acting Secretary of State Adee of the is
suance of the decree.
TWO CRUISERS LEAVE NORFOLK
Cleveland and Tacoma Carry Extra
Complements of Marines.
NORFOLK, Va'., Sept. 16. Two cruisers
from the Norfolk Navy-yard, with several
hundred men, in addition to two drafts
of marines from Boston and League
Island, passed out of. the Virginia capes
today on the way to Cuba. They were
the cruisers Cleveland and Tacoma. The
Cleveland left the Navy-yard yesterday

to await the departure of the cruiser Ta

FRENCH MUCH INTERESTED
Temps Believes Roosevelt Will Do
AVhat Is Right.
PARIS, Sept. 16. Lively interest is
manifested here over President Roose
velt's decision to send Secretary of War
Taft and Acting Secretary of State to
Cuba, and many newspapers Jump to the
conclusion that this will sound the knell
of Cuban independence. In responsible
circles, however, the right of the United
States, under the treaty with Cuba, to
restore order, is recognized, but there is
no disposition to impute to the Wash
ington government a desire to seize the
occasion to annex the island.
It Is thought by some persons that
even if the wise counsel of President
Roosevelt is followed and the rival fac
tions can temporarily bury the hatchet,
there would be an early recurrence of
the revolution which will compel ulti
mate annexation. The Temps, which fre
quently reflects the views of the Foreign
Office, says that while American com
mercial interests in the belief that they
are injured by the commercial treaties
Cuba has negotiated with other powers,
undoubtedly hope the present imbroglio
will result in annexation, the position of
the Government la very reserved.
--resiaent nooseveit is a man
of honor who will keep his word,'
says The Temps. "He gave lib
erty to Cuba and will not take the first
opportunity to withdraw it. Beside, he
is a man of experience, and knows what
possession of the Philippines cost, and
continues to cost, the United States. Cu
bans as citizens or subjects are not" easy
"Unless the unexpected happens. It is
safe to affirm. therefore, that America
does not contemplate laying violent hands
on the Island, but only Intends to safe
guard American interests and demonstrate
to the Cubans that it will be a matter
of hours if it desires to Impose its will.
It probably will require the appearance
of American warships to Induce the Cu
bans to accept President Roosevelt's ex
"But, unfortunately, a. settlement of the
present difficulties will not-be definite
and the Cubans, who, during four years,
have surprised Europe by their prosper

old vice. Such relapses are rarely iso
lated. This is a great feature of - the
situation, and one we deplore in a people
who always received French sympathy
and friendship." -

SEATTLE, Wash., Sept. 16. (Special.)
Republican politicians are beginning to
gather for Wednesday's Republican state
convention, but the big .crowd will not
be in before Tuesday. This is the sec
ond Republican state convention held in
Seattle since statehood, and Seattle is
trying to act a gracious host. There will
not be much to the gathering, aside from
a lot of speechmaking, for the affair
is a set of renominations. The only for
mal action will be on a platform already
pretty well outlined along "stand pat"
The threat Is openly made by labor
leaders that they will make war upon
Supreme Court Judges Root and Crow,
but they will not have any perceptible
Influence upon the convention. Whatever
the labor leaders do will have to be done
In the campaign before election.
Judge Hatch, of the Clallam-Jefferson
District; Judge Rice, of Lewis; J. C.
Hogan, of Chehalis, and M. F. Gose, of
Garfield, will gather complimentary bal
lots from their home counties, but they
are not regarded as serious aspirants for
places on the bench. George H. Emerson
has been indorsed for Congress from Che
halis County, but he will not cut a figure
in the state convention.
The Republican state committee will
meet just prior to the convention, but
there is little work to be done. A few
formal recommendations may be made
lor enlarging the committee s power, es
pecially in the filling of vacancies. There
are at least two bolting factions to affect
Republican politics, but neither can be
heard in the state convention.
When John S. Mullin won out In San
Juan County, William Shultz's delegates
Doited and John T. Welch s men left the
Pacific County convention. Both these
are local fights without a state interest.

Wires Declared to Be Dangerous.
OREGON CITY. Or., Sept. 16. (Special.)
The report of the Board of Underwrit
ers relative to the dangerous condition of
the Portland General Electric Company's
wiring in this city, was last night at a
special meeting of the City Council re
ferred to the commltee on streets and
public property, with Instructions to as
certain the rights of the municipality in
the premises and report. If it is within
the power of the Council to do so, it has
been intimated that the electric company
will be required either to remove all of
its heavily charged wires from Main
street . or place the same underground.
