OF PORTAGE ROAD
Resignation of Superin
IS WEARY OF CRITICISM
State Commission Sow Likely to De
mand That Open River Associa
tion, "Which Found Fault, Take
Railway and Operate It.
SAXEM, Or.. Nov. 7. (Special.) Un
pleasant relations that every day grew
more acute, between Traffic Manager
Fmith. of the Open River Association, and
Superintendent Cook, of the Portage Rail
way, resulted today in the resignation of
the latter. The State Commission stands
hy Cook, however, and has not yet ac
cepted his resignation. The outcome is
likely to be that the Commission will of
fer to let the Open River people take the
road and run it to suit themselves or, if
they decline, cease operating the road
within W days
The Open River Association has not
been satisfied with the management of
the road, though the Commission let it
Felect the manager. Now the Commis
sion will give it a chance to show that
it can do better.
In tendering his resignation Superin
tendent L. S. Cook said that he did so
because of the friction between himself
and Traffic Manager Smith, of the Open
River Association, and between himself
and I. H. Ta.ffe, a canneryman at Celio.
What this friction is has been common
knowledge in official circles for some
time. The feeling had become so bitter that
enemies of Cook had whispered hints of
graft, but the Commission had found all of
Cook's transactions perfectly square and
The Commission today expressed the de
sire that Cook remain in charge of the
road, but he has determined to quit the
position and it is up to the board to make
other arrangements. It is not improbable
that Traffic Manager Smith, of the Open
River Association, will have a chance to
try his hand at railroading.
Basis ol the Criticism.
The association's criticism of Cook was
based chiefly upon his refusal to note in
his receipts the condition of freight re
ceived from steamboats for shipment up
the river. Merchandise of all kinds is re
ceived hy the portage road, taken to
Celio and then delivered to the Open
River Association boats, which take it
to destinations up the river. When the
consignees receive damaged goods they
come back upon the association, and the
association has no record of the condition
of the. freight when delivered to the por
tage road by the lower river boats.
Superintendent Cook refused to check
the freight as to condition because he
had not time enough. The boats unload
at night and his crew cannot sort the
freight and examine it without great de
lay, so Cook has been receipting for the
number of pieces of freight, without not
ing their condition.
Another criticism was based upon
Cook's refusal to take wheat for ship
ment during the grainhandlers1 strike,
unless the owners would take the chance
of damage hy reason of the wheat being
piled up in the open air while the boats
below were declining to take it. The
owners refused to bear the risk. Mr.
Cook's course in both particulars was in
strict accordance with instructions from
Mr Taffe'j? antagonism arises out of
incidents which the commission consid
ered of no consequence.
The plan of the commission to propose
that the Open River Association under
take to run the road, however, does not
arise entirely out of the criticism of
Cook. The fact of the matter is that the
road has run behind very heavily finan
cially. Since the road opened for business
ahout a year ago. the receipts have
amounted to $3376 45 and the disburse
ments to $16,329 75, or a loss In operating of
Washington Farmers Benefit.
Nor is this all During the past month
the road handled about 29,0V) sacks of
wheat and 25.ono sacks of it ca.me from
Washington farms and 40fi0 sacks from
Oregon farms. This looks as though Ore
gon is operating a road at a loss for the
benefit, chiefly, of people who pay taxes
in Washington. -
These figures were given by Traffic
Manager Smith to the Portage Commis
sion. Mr. Smith explained that, though
Oregon wheatgrowers express themselves
as friendly to the portage road, for one
reason or another, they put their wheat
in warehouses and it goes to market hy
rail. Mr. Smith also asserts that, with
few exceptions, the farmers get no more
for their wheat because of the operation
of the road: that the saving in freight-is
pocketed by the exporter.
In view, therefore, of the doubt whether
the farmer gets the benefit and the evi
dence that, the Washington farmer is the
chief beneficiary, if any one is. and the
further fact that the road Is being oper
ated at a loss, also that the Open -River
Association is not satisfied with the way
it has been managed, the commission
will meet the executive committee of the
association Saturday and talk over the sit
uation. All of this year's wheat now on the
river bank will be shipped this month,
and, unless the association wants to run
the road, it likely the force of em
ployes will bo discharged and the rolling
stock put away in the sheds at the end of
The conference will be held in the office
of J. N. Teal, in Portland, next Saturday.

E. CHETTTROXT ATTEMPTS STJI
CIDE AT HOOD RIVER.
Still Unconscious and Will Probably
Die Was Prominent Insur
ance Man in Montana.
HOOD RIVER. Or., Nov. 7. (Special.)
E. Cheuvront, who was formerly district
manager for the New York Life Insurance
Company in Montana, and who has been
in Hood River but a short time, was dis
covered in his room at the Mount Hood
Hotel today in what is feared to be a
dying condition, from carbolic acid poi
soning. Cheuvront's condition was discov
ered by the proprietor of the hotel, who
was passing the room and heard him
groaning. Unable to effect an entrance
through the door, employes of the hotel
went onto the roof of the hotel porch
and got into the room through the win
dow. An ounce bottle labeled "carbolic acid"
and empty, told the story. Medical as
sistance was summoned. But for his
groaning Cheuvront was apparently life
less, and has not recovered conscious
ness. It is said by physicians that his
recovery is extremely doubtful.
It was learned at the hotel that Cheu
vront retired about 10 o'clock last night
and that he has been there since Monday.
Previous to going to the Mount Hood he
was at the Ramona, another hotel here,
and is known to have a small account
in the First National Bank, of this city.
When he first came here Cheuvront
issued a check on the Aetna Bank at
Butte. Mont., which was honored by the
First National. It was not known at
that time that the Aetna bank had failed.
The failure was reported in the evening
papers that night, however, and the
bank officials were very agreeably sur
prised when Cheuvront walked into the
institution the next morning and volun
tarily made good the check.
Papers which have passed through the
bank show that at one time Cheuvront
was at Chadron. Neb. A letter which
was found at his bedside is addressed to
E. E. Stephenson, Security Bank, Sioux
No reason is known for the attempt at
suicide, except that Cheuvront has been
in poor health and for several days had
been suffering with rheumatism. His ob
ject in coming here is said to have been
to regain his health.
On a piece of paper which was found
under the bed was written, "Wire E. E.

JUDGE WATSON SPEAKS BEFORE
Large Audience Shows Appreciation
of Ashland Man's Portrayal
of State's Beauty.
Oregon, in all her glory and magnifi
cence, was depicted in word and picture
at the Commercial Club last night,
when Judge C. B. Watson, of Ashland,
delivered an illustrated lecture upon
the scenic beauty of the Beaver State.
He did not confine himself to scenery
alone, but also touched upon the indus
trial and horticultural Oregon.
A person standing outside the door
of the auditorium would have had no
difficulty in imagining that a rousing
political meeting was going on inside
from the frequent and heavy bursts of
applause. When a picture of Mount
Hood was shown, standing out in all its
beauty, and with every color repro
duced true to nature, the assemblage
gave freedom to its enthusiasm in
The royal chinook was given a hearty
ovation when a photograph was shown
of the inside of a cannery, where the
great fish were piled in heaps. The
famous apples that come from the Hood
River and Rogue River valleys received
their share of approbation. Crater
Lake received an unusually heavy burst
of applause, as did bits of Columbia
The views shown last night are un
doubtedly the finest of their kind ever
brought together in Portland, and told
volumes about Oregon. Coupled with
this was the fund of knowledge ac
quired by oudge .Watson on Oregon's
scenery and resources. Judge Watson
devoted a large part of what he said
to Southern Oregon. He told of the
importance of the fruit-raising in the
Rogue River Valley, and when he told
of the wonderful' size and beauty of
the apples and pears and peaches grown
there he had the reproductions to bear
out the truth of his statements.
He described in detail the beauties
of Crater Lake. A dozen or more views
were shown of this scenic wonder, and
the speaker told many , things a.bout it
that are not generally known. He said
that last Summer it was discovered
there is a crater lake inside Crater
Lake. Upon the summit of the cone of
the mountain which forms an island in
the vast body of water is another small
lake, which appears to be of great
depth. Along- the sides there are sev
eral large glaciers, and there is also
a large cave which can be entered by
boat. He told of the gigantic irriga
tion project that has been undertaken
by the Government at Klamath Falls,
and views of the work as it progresses
Several hundred people braved the
rain and wind of last night to hear the
lecture, and they were well repaid. In
fact, it was such a rare treat that when
another entertainment of like character
is given under the auspices of the Com
mercial Club it is doubtful if the audi
torium will be large enough to hold all
who will attend".

LEAVES DESPITE THREATS
MKS. SNYDER BOARDS TRAIN
FOR THE EASy.
Attorney Declares Officials Said
They 'would Charge Her With
Murder If She Should Go.
Mrs. Madge Snyder yesterday morning
called the dare of the Washington County
officials, when she boarded a train for
Kansas City. Se-eral times she threat
ened to leave, and upon each occasion
she was warned that if she did attempt
to depart, she would be promptly ar
rested. However, she gave notice of her
Intended departure and when she stepped
upon the train there was no one to de
Mrs. Snyder came to Portland five
weeks ago to attempt to clear away the
mystery which surrounds the murder of
her late husband, and the Forest Grove
bank robbery. She declared before leav
ing, that Washington County officials
have sufficient evidence to warrant the
arrest of the suspected parties, and that
inasmuch as they declined to act after
receiving her testimony, she could see no
reason why her stay in Portland should
be prolonged. She alleged that she had
been bulldozed by Detective Vaughn, who
assisted in the attempted unraveling of
Mrs. Snyder was told by her attorney
that the officials could no longer retain
her here and he advised her to leave if
she desired. Yesterday afternoon she
called up Assistant District Attorney
Tongue, at Hillsboro, by telephone, and
told him of her determination to leave
for the East. On being told that she
would be arrested if she attempted to
carry out her announced intention, she
laughed, and stated that she would go
anyway. And she did.
J. F. Watts, who is her attorney in
Portland, when seen last night, gave out
the following statement:
Mrs. Snyder consulted me to ascertain
whether she could leave at this time.
She said that she had given her testi
mony before the coroner, had paid her
expenses here for five weeks, had paid
them from Kansas City to Portland for
the purpose of testifying, and that she
considered there was sufficient evidence
before the District Attorney to warrant
the issuance of an information. Since
her arrival here she has been bulldozed
by Detective Vaughn, and only yesterday
when she called up Assistant District At
torney Tongue, at Hillsboro, was told
that if she attempted to leave, a warrant
would be issued, charging her with im
plication in a conspiracy that resulted in
the death of her husband. She is willing
to come back here any time, voluntarily,

Cause of Constipation is promptly removed.
That cause of Constipation is Weak, or
Lazy Bowel Muscles.
When your Bowel-Muscles grow flabby
they need pxercise to strengthen them, not
'"Physic" to pamper them.
There's only one kind of Artificial Er
ercise for the Bowel-Muscles.
Its name is "CASCARETS," and Its
price Is Ten Cents a box.
So, if you want the same natural action
that a six mile walk in the country would
give you, (without the weariness) take ono
Cascaret at a time, with intervals between,
till you reach the exact condition you desire.
Ono Cascaret at a time will properly
cleanse a foul Breath, or Coated Tongue.
' Don't fail to carry the Vest Pocket
Cascaret Box with you constantly.
All Druggists sell them over ten million
boxes a year.
Bo very careful to get tho genuine.
