TO TRADE HERE
W. A. Mears Returns From
Islands With Advice for
OUTLOOK IS PROMISING
Dealers There Must Be Kept Advised
Concerning Prices, Sailing Dates
. . and Other Details Good So
licitors Will Be Needed.
.V. A. Mears reached Portland yes
terday from Honolulu, -where he has
spent-several weeks looking Into the
trade conditions there with a view to
Inducing- the Hawaiian merchants to do
a large part of their buying in Port
land. He found the outlook promising
and is optimistic concerning the pros
pects for future trade of Portland Job
bers with Hawaii.
In order to get the business, Mr.
Mears says, the merchants of the' city
will have to go after it by keeping
the Hawaiian dealers advised of prices,
sailing dates and other details and It
will be necessary to send traveling
meu .over there, to show the business
men of the Islands that Portland is In
earnest. Now that the trade of the Ha
waiian group, which formerly went al
most wholly to San Francisco, is likely
to be divided because of the disaster to
the Bay City and the consequent read
justment of business, Portland stands
an excellent chance to secure a share
of the Jobbing trade.
Mr. Mears wlH be ready to answer
questions and advance suggestions in
regard to the Hawaiian situation at a
meeting to be held under the auspices
of the Chamber of Commerce some time
this week. All Interested in furthering
Portland's trade relations with Hawaii
are asked to attend. The time of the
meeting will be announced later.
"I am not afraid to predict that
Portland will get her share of thft Im
porting and exporting trade of Ha
waii." said Mr. Mears. "There Is plenty
of trade there and a new competitive
market Is desired. The requisite is that
Portland go after the trade and keep
eteadliy after It, post the merchants
in the Islands as to the condition of the
markets, times of steamer sailings, and
follow up the efforts that nave been
made by shippers representing the
different-lines of business.
Must Make Good Prices.
"The Jobbers must be careful of the
grades of goods shipped and should
give close prices. They must foster the
trade carefully for a time, as Innova
tions are disquieting In business as In
everything else and until Jobbing rela
tions are fully established, there Is
liable to be more or less uneasiness.
"I received a great deal of encour
agement while -In Hawaii from many
sources. Portland has hlthertb not been
considered as a market, simply because
she has never let herself be known in
Honolulu as a market. In telling of
Portland's ability to handle her due
share of the trade of the Islands, I have
acquainted the merchants there of her
advantages. They are advised of the
capabilities of the city in affording
them a desirable place to buy.
"There are two distinct classes of
trade In Hawaii, the great Jobbing
bouses which control plantation sup
plies and the smaller retailers and Job
bers which supply the other consumers.
The first step in approaching foreign
trade Is, of course, transportation fa
cilities. Without a direct' steamship
line from Portland, what little trade
that is obtained must be handled, as it
has always heretofore been handled, at
second hand, via San Francisco.
Praises Chamber of Commerce.
"But with the placing in commission
of the Matson line of steamers, which
was accomplished through the efforts
of the Chamber of Commerce, this
first requisite was accomplished. The
secund step was to have the great Jobbing-houses
In Hawaii place purchas
ing and selling agents in the North
west. One of these firms has seen the
need of thts and a purchasing office
has been established in Seattle. Seattle
was chosen for the reason that the
firm Is the agent in Honolulu for the
American-Hawaiian Steamship Com
pany, which at that time did not send
its shlDs to Portland.
"As Portland is a primary market for
many more articles than the Sound and
as the steamers have since been calling
here, while the purchasing- agent Is
himself a former resident of Portland,
I do not fear that Seattle or Tacoma
will bo unjustly favored.
"There is no doubt at all that the
othe"r classes of trade are anxious to
open.up new buying and selling mar
kets, i found evidences" of "this in the
many Inquiries I received while in
Honolulu. Portland can get-a slice of
the Hawaiian business if she wants it
nd makes the necessary effort."

All cars running over the new line were
crowded to their capacity. The rush

WHY NOT PROHIBIT ALL?
Pertinent Queries as to Responsibil
ity for Wrong-Doing.
PORTLAND, Or., Sept. IB. (To the
Editor.) Will you kindly permit the un
dersigned, who is rated in law with Idiots,
Insane persons and criminals, to pursue
to Its logical sequence, a query which,
under the caption of "Fixing the Blame,"
appeared In The Oregonian of September
14 over the anonymous signature of
"Justice." The writer, who Is self-evl-dently
a Prohibitionist, says: "Isn't It a
fact that the saloon man (In St. Paul)
furnished two of the elements to the
crime (of murder) and if so, why should
he not be held as an accessory?"
I shall not attempt to refute his logic.
But he doesn't, carry It far enough. Why
not go to the roots of all evil and pro
hibit them all? Why not prohibit the pro
duction and sale of everything from
which intoxicating liquors can be made.
Including corn, wheat, rye, barley, grapes,
apples, pears, peaches and even potatoes?
Wh not prohibit hop raising? Why not
prohibit hop picking? Why not prohibit
hop selling? And last, but by no means
least, why not prohibit the existence of
women? Is It not an established fact
that when the Whites, Thaws, Velguths
and their ilk get caught in the meshes
of the law, their precious lives might
have been spared to society If 'there
hadn't been any women In the world to
lead them astray? By all means give us

MANY FILLS MADE
Bringing Low Districts of East
Side Up to Grade.
MUCH MATERIAL IS MOVED
Good Work Now in Progress Means
the Passing of Elevated Road
ways and General Use of
It is estimated that over 1,000,000 cubiu
yards of dirt have been used for fills on
the East Side' so far this year, and use
of much more is in prospect. The most
extensive fill is being made by the O.
W. P. for Inman-Poulsen & Co., where
four or five blocks have already been
filled up, covering the deposit of sawdust.
Material is brought in from the bluff
south of the sawmill on short hauls and
dumped on the sawdust.
More than 100,000 cubic yards of dirt
have been filled In here, and the work
is still going forward. It Is announced
that the whole of the Stephens Slough
will be filled, which will take over 1,000,
000 cubic yards of material alone. At
present sawdust and slabwood are being
thrown Into this slough at the rate of
hundreds of wagon loads daily. As soon
as work starts on the tunnel for the
Brooklyn sewer between East Eleventh
street and the Willamette River the dirt
will be deposited in this ravine. It is
calculated to take care of the water flow
ing through the Stephens ravine by di
verting it through the sewer. The tunnel
will be over 1000 feet? long, and a vast
amount of dirt will come out of it.
The O. W. P. Is also filling up with a
solid embankment its trestle toward The
Oaks. This work is nearlng completion.
Should the company finally decide to lo
cate its shops on the Martin flats on
either side of this long embankment, op
posite the Portland Crematorium, it
would mean that over 1.000,000 cubic yards
of dirt would be required to fill up the
ground to the required level for the
It Is believed that these low lands are
certain to be filled up above high-water
mark whether they are selected as a site
for the shops for the combined street
railway system of Portland or not: There
are over 100 acres of land altogether here
that would be available. The company is
steadily cutting away at the high bluff
opposite Ross Island until there is al
ready a space "more than 60 feet wide.
In East Portland the next Important fill
Is on Hawthorne avenue between East
First and Second streets. The surface of
the elevated roadway has been' taken -up
preparatory to starting operations. About

for this fill. The O. W. P. will supply

bridge wlU be supplanted with an em
bankment of 75,000 cubic yards. Prepara
tions are nearly completed for starting
on this work. On Belmont street two
fills are being made. The bridge at East
Main street across Hawthorne Creek is
being filled up with dirt hauled by
wagons. Also between Union avenue and
East Water street the same kind of work
is being done. Probably 80,000 cublo yards
all told will complete these two fills.
On East Oak, If the proposed Improve
ment is made, two fills will be made,
aggregating over 100.000 cubic yards of
material. The improvement contemplat
ed Is between East Water and East Sixth
streets. For the fills on Union avenue
now under way, over 90,000 cubic yards
of dirt all told will be used before the
improvement Is completed between East
Oak and Belmont streets. Just as soon
as the property owners In the warehouse
district south of East Morrison street can
get the Port of Portland dredge back
they . say that they will resume work
there, and keep it In operation for the
next year until the whole district is filled
to the basement level, which will require
more than 600,000 cubic yards of dirt.
Material for these big fills has - come
mainly from North Mount Tabor, where

HATCHERY ON THE M'KENZIE
STATE FISH WARDEN WILL AD
More Than 4,000,000 Salmon Eggs
Secured by Experiment Station
There This Year.
State Tish Warden Van Dusen was In
Portland yesterday on his way home to
Astoria after having visited the station
on the McKenrle River. About 4,000,000
egg's have been secured at the station this
year and Mr. Van Dusen is the authority
for the statement that . a fish hatchery
will be established there. The station
was located as an experiment and the
results have been so encouraging that It
is believed . that conditions . will war
rant a hatchery.
Last year but 2,000,000 eggs were
obtained and the scarcity of salmon was
attributed to the lack of a suitable fish
way at Oregon City. Mr. Van Dusen had
the way improved so' that the incline
would not be so steep. He now believes
that the fish can get over the falls with
out difficulty and for this reason has
decided to establish a hatchery on the
"There can be no doubt but what the
falls at Oregon City . have affected the
salmon supply," declared Mr. Van Dusen.
"The salmon would follow up the Willa
mette River until they came to the falls
and until the recent Improvement of the
fish way but comparatively few of them
ever entered the deep water above.
"Finding a barrier they would turn
back and spawn along the sand bars. As
sand bars are not the-natural spawning
grounds for this king of fish millions of
eggs were lost,"
