CLARK INTO LINE
Senator With All His Millions
Foiled by Wizard of
SEIZED ONLY OPEN PASS
Copper King's Brother Tells of
Struggle to Build Independent
Road From Salt Lake Sale
of Half Stock Is Forced.
LOS ANGEIVRS, Cal., Feb. 7. The first
day of the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion's hearings in Los Angeles on the
subject of , the Harriman merger
was consumed In the direct examination
of a single witness, J. Ross Clark, brother
of United States Senator W. A. Clark,
director and second vice-president of the
San Pedro. Ixm Angeles & Salt Lake
Railway. Mr. Clark's examination by C.
A. Severance, attorney for the Commis
sion, was comprehensive and complete.
The line of questioning covered every
range of subject as it applied to the re
lations of the Clark road and the Harri
man system, and a great mass of new
facts was elicited.
Mr. Clark proved a willing witness, and
gave information freely enough, although
he was hampered occasionally in his ex
planations by a lack of knowledge of the
technical details of the business. He,
however, readily referred his inquisitors
to the managers of the various depart
ments of his company for the desired in
formation. The most important fact brought out
was that showing the reason and neces
sity, from the viewpoint of the Clarks,
for the disposal of one-half of their road
to Mr. Harriman. It was shown that
when the building of the Clark road was
commenced from Salt Lake City and Los
Angeles, the Oregon Short Line, a Harri
man property, harassed and retarded
their progress, and finally, getting posses
sion of the only available pass through
the mountains 4n the shortest direction to
Los Angeles, compelled the Clark road
to come to their terms, sell to them one
half of their property and make an iron
clad agreement to maintain the same lo
cal freight rates as the Harriman roads
for a period of 99 years.
As a final act of coercion of the Clarks,
the Harriman Interests began a survey of
a road between Salt Lake City and Los
Angeles, and implied, at least so Mr.
Clark test 1 Med, a threat of building a
CONFEREXCK WITH OPERATORS
Harriman Officials Asked for More
Pay and Sunday Rest.
SAN FRANCISCO. Feb. 7. An import
ant conference between representatives
of the Order of Railroad Telegraphers
and officials of the Southern Pacific was
begun at the offices of the railroad in the
.Flood building this afternoon.
The committee from the telegraphers
presented to the railroad officials a re
quest for a general readjustment of the
schedule now in force on the Pacific
system, which was agreed upon three
years ago. It was stated that a general
increase of wages and lessening of
hours was desired, the changes to
be made to suit varying condi
tions at different places. It was also
requested that, where possible, there
should be a cessation of Sunday work,
ths rrtmmlttpo nrvpntincr tha vfaw Af t Vi a
company that in many cases Sunday
work was necessary, so that a flat order
doing away with all Sunday work was
out of the question. "
It was stated by both sides that the
conference is a friendly one and an amic
able agreement is looked for. The
changes, if made, will affect the entire
Pacific system, embracing the lines of the
Southern Pacific from Portland to Los
Angeles and as for east as Ogden.
Talk of Raising Freight Rates.
NEW YORK, Feb. 7.-Jtallroad officials
who make their headquarters here seem
generally disposed to echo the remark
last Monday of President James J. Hill,
of the Great Northern, that the rail
roads of the country will find themselves
obliged before long to advance freight
rates, instead of reducing them. The con
sensus of opinion of these officials is that
Increase In cost of labor and material is
so far outstripping the rate of increase In
net earnings that only a moderate re
versal of business activity will bring the
railroad companies face to face with a
jjiretty difficult problem as to rates, es
pecially in view of the popular sentiment
toward railroads now prevailing.
Burlington Fight for Mall Contract.
CHICAGO, Feb. 7. The Inter-Ocean
"In order to prevent the transconti
nental mail from being transferred to
the Rock Island System, the Burlington
Railroad has notified the Postofflce
Department that it will cut Its rates for
this service about 7 per cent, equal to
about $65,000 per annum."
Harriman Returns to Work.
NEW YORK, Feb. 7.-E. H. Harriman,
who has been confined to his house for
nearly a month as a result of a surgical
operation, was at his office today for the
first time since his recent illness.

SUSPICIOUS OF FOUL PLAY
rollce Doubt That Xeil Was Drowned
by Accident. '
Police officers who investigated the
drowning of Jack Neil, at the foot of
Salmon street, early yesterday morn
ing, believe the man might have fallen
or been knocked into the river while
engaged in a fight or altercation.
"When they reached the scene, conflict
ing stories were told them by members
of the crew of the steamer Northwest,
on which craft Nell was cook.
Payolmen Wendorf and Bales state
that Mate Ed. Brown, of the steamer,
had accompanied Neil up town to get
a drink, and was with him when he
returned to the vessel some few min
utes before he attempted to board the
boat. Brown is said to have shouted,
"The cook has fallen overboard," be
fore any of the other members of the
crew could reach the scene, and the
officers are puzzled as to how he knew
who it was before the body was fished
Patrolman Gustafson states that the
fact that the man's eyes and mouth
were closed tightly when taken
from the river is a Suspicious
sign, and furthermore, that during the
process of rolling the body in the ef
fort to resuscitate It, no water was
forced from the mouth, which caused
him to believe that the man was dead
before he struck the water.
Coroner Finley Btated yesterday
that the death was undoubtedly due to
accidental drowning and that he did
not believe that an Inquest would be

belonging to the C. J. Cook Company at
Grand avenue and East Clay street at
12:30 o'clock this morning, and caused In
juries to Will Rhelstein, the driver, which
necessitated his being conveyed to St. Vin

The injured driver says that he was

the car, for which he was endeavoring
to turn out, came on him with unabated
speed and the crash completely turned his
wagon over and badly wrecked It. Ac
cording to eye-witnesses the car was go

slow down for the wagon, the rear wheels
of which had become fouled with the
rail and were skiddng, as was shown by
the marks in the mud for about 20 feet at
the scene of the accident.
Rhelstein was thrown under the over
turned wagon and all the witnesses
thought he was killed. His right arm is
broken and he Is bruised about the body
and legs. His injuries are not believed to

George Vaholn became suddenly 111
in a lodging-house at Sixth and Irving:
streets last evening, and at the in
stance of t ity Physician Spencer was
taken to St. Vincent's Hospital in the
patrol wagon. He says he has drunk a
quart of whisky every day during the
past 20 years, which is probably re
sponsible for the internal disorders
with which he is afflicted.
At the rate mentioned, he must have
drunk something over 29 barrels of
whisky within the two decades.
While Family and Guests Make

"While the members of the household

at 6S6 Everett street, between 9 and 10
o'clock last evening, a burglar entered
the second story and ransacked the room
of a guest, Mrs. Hewett, of Seattle.
The burglary occurred while the enter

"What did Mr. Thaw do?"
"He shook his head sadly and said,
'Poor little Evelyn. I see they have been
making a fool of, you.' I told him that
Mr. White had taken me to Abe Hum
mell's law office and had shown me pa
pers in a suit In which a girl had made
charges against Mr. Thaw."
"How long did the interview last?"
"About ten minutes."
"What did Mr. Thaw do on leaving?"
"He kissed my hand and said he did
not care what I did; that I would al
ways be his little angel."
"Did he often call you angel?"
Stories Which Estranged.
Mrs. Thaw said she met Harry several
weeks later on the street. "He came up
to see me," she said, "and said I was
looking badly. I told him I had not been
well. He told me I should not put rouge
on my cheeks, as it was not becoming
to a girl of my type. I said I had put
some on because I was so pale. I then
met him upon the street one day, but he
only bowed. The next time I saw him
was at the Cafe Beaux Arts. I was In
vited to dine there with another girl and
found Mr. Thaw one of the party.
"I told Mr. Thaw I was going back on
the stage. He said I was looking badly
and he would pay anything to keep me
off the stage.
"I met him again a few days later with
the same girl at the same restaurant. He
asked me to tell him all about the stor
ies. I told them all, the story of the
girl in the bathtub, of tying a girl to the
bedpost and whipping her, and I told him
all the stories that friends of Mr. White
had told me; that Mr. Thaw took mor
phine and that it was while he was under
the influence of the morphine that he
did these awful things. '
Traces Slanders to White.
"He said he understood why these stor
ies had been told me, as White and the
men who told them hated him.' He asked
me if I ever saw him take morphine and
I said I had not, and that I told Mr.
White that I never had seen him with
a hypodermic syringe.
"After that I saw Mr. Thaw often. One
day I found the man who had told 'me
of having been at a hotel one night and
hearing screams in a room. He broke in
and said he found Mr. Thaw whipping a
girl who was tied to a bedpost. I asked
him to tell me the story again and he did
so. But his story this time was that
it was a waiter who saw the Incident.
It was different from the original story.
The Sunday Oregoriian
All the News Home and Abroad
Most attractive Colored Supplement printed on the Pacific Coast. The first page is
designed and executed by The Oreganian's own artists. The picture next Sunday,
"Won't You Be My Valentine ?" is an original conception, carried out in an artistic
manner. A feature of these color pages is that they illustrate Oregon scenes and
events of the hour. Thursday, February 14, will be St. Valentine's Day, and the artist
presents the readers of The Sunday Oregonian with the picture of one of Portland's
prettiest young girls as a Valentine. Do you know herf
The Sunday Oregonian
The Sunday Oregonian employs special writers and artists to furnish' it new and
original features every Sunday. Among its special writers are: Frederic J. Haskin,
who is writing articles daily about America and Americans. Professor Frederick Starr
is writing for The Sunday Oregonian an interesting and instructive series of articles
on the Congo country. The articles are illustrated wkh pictures of the natives, their
homes and home life. Dexter Marshall, another writer of passing men and things, has
contributed for next Sunday's issue an article on newspaper men in public life that
is illustrated with lifelike pictures of six of the leading newspaper men of the age.
Their names are familiar to every newspaper reader, but you must secure a copy of
The Sunday Oregonian to see the latest photographs of them.
John Elfreth Watkins, another special correspondent of ability, writes graphically
of the claim made by a prominent Tennessee attorney to the effect that J. Wilkes
Booth, the assassin of President Lincoln, did not die until 1903. The evidence de
duced to sustain the claim is very convincing. The story is illustrated with a fine pic
ture of President Lincoln, Booth, David Hurd, Lincoln's log cabin home, the Ford
Theater and other scenes of the historic tragedy that shocked the entire world.
The Sunday Oregonian
The colored supplement has the most amusing and laughable of funny pictures.
Binnacle Jim's illustrated sea stories give the funny side of a seaman's life. The
trouble that Jim and Bill, the parrot and monkey, get into trying to get even with
the old captain, who is a perfect martinet, would make the most serious-minded
merry- Next Sunday's story shows them sewed up in an elephant's hide. They try
to run the "old man" off the ship, but meet with an accident, and they get the
worst of it.
The Roosevelt Bears are in Ireland, having the time of their life with Paddy, the
jaunting-car and the pigs. They visit an Irish fair and get into more mischief and
trouble than on any of their previous journeys. The Roosevelt Bears are conceded to
furnish more laughs for the youngsters than any other series of comic pictures. You
have to see them in their various antics to enjoy them. You will find them only in .
The Sunday Oregonian. They appear in a new scene every Sunday.
The Sunday Oregonian
Does not neglect society, the housewife, the lover of outdoor sports or the lover of
books. In next Sunday's issue a page is devoted to the natty suits and gorgeous head
wear that will be worn this Spring by stylish women. The illustrations show the very
newest creations in gowns, hats and neckwear. The newest Parisian styles will be
found in every Sunday edition. The feminine motorist will also find the latest nov
elties in the fashion pages.
George Ade, the Hoosier humorist, contributes something every week. He is now
doing over old stories in a very humorous fashion. He does not spare sentiment or
romance, but shows the absurd and ridiculous in everything he touches. Oliver Gold
smith's "Vicar of Wakefield" claims his attention for next Sunday's edition. Only
Ade could make this popular story take on such a phase.
Considerable space is given to a discussion of current topics by able writers. "The
Beginning of Methodism in Oregon," "The Plea of Insanity as a Defense," "How
. Shall We Save the Salmon?" are among the topics discussed. All of these pages of
special features are in addition to the regular news, society, music, real estate and dra
matic departments. The Sunday Oregonian gives the telegraphic news of the world, of
Portland, Oregon and the Pacific- Northwest.

I asked him why and he said, 'I told you
that to please Bomebody.' "
Mrs. Thaw said she finally told Mr.
Thaw that she could And nothing in the
stories that had been told her about
"What did Thaw then say to you?'"
"He said It was all right. 'You know

Mrs. Thaw said she saw Harry Thaw
the night of Christmas eve, 1903, at the
Thaw's Iiawyer Testifies.
Mrs. Thaw was here directed to step
aside temporarily to allow the testimony
of Frederick W. Longfellow, to whom
Thaw's letters offered in evidence had
Mr. Qleason examined the witness. He
showed Mr. Longfellow the letters and
asked if they had 'been received by
him. Mr. Jerome objected to the tes
timony until the defense waived the
right of professional privilege as be

the defendant as a former client of the
"I desire to cross-examine this wit
ness," said Mr. Jerome, "and as he was
formerly counsel to Thaw I may "
"I withdraw the question put to my
brother." said Delmas.
"Were you attorney for Thaw when
you received this letter?" demanded Mr.
"Did you receive it in your professional
The witness examined the letter close
ly. "I presume the letter came to me
in a professional capacity," answered Mr.
"Have you the envelope of this letter?"
"I think not; the envelope probably was
"You have made no search 7"
"While there Is doubt as to the exist
ence of the envelope of a letter which
may come by mall, no other evidence
upon the point can be received," ruled
"But," argued Mr. Delmas, "I have
asked the witness to state from memory
whether he received the letter previous
to June 25. 1906."
"You may answer that," said the judge.
''Yes, two years before," said Mr. Long
fellow. On cross-examination Mr. Jerome drew
from the witness that he had refreshed
his memory from a letter-book in the
"Was that a usual thing to do with
professional relations with clients?"
"Not altogether," said the witness.
Another letter was shown for Identi
fication and .another argument ensued.
Arguments between the counsel took up
most of the time of the afternoon ses
sion. Throughout the afternoon there
was nothing startling and those who
were anxious for sensations were, in
gloom. Mr. Longfellow was finally
allowed to say that the second. letter
shown him was received in November,
"Was It received In a professional
capacity?" insisted Mr. Jerome.
"While It may have been," said the
witness, "it does not? follow that I car
ried out the Instructions it contained."
Mr. Longfellow identified four or five
letters and fixed their dates as prior to
June 25, 1906. Mr. Jerome persisted In
asking whether or not the letters came
to. the witness in his professional capa
city. The -witness eaid again that he
presumed they did. though he did- not
carry out the instructions.
"I communicated their contents to Mrs.

To Introduce the letters, Mr. Delmas
called Mra. Thaw and then Droceadad ta
read the first one. It was quite lengthy,
requiring more than 15 minutes in the
reading. The letter began: "Dear Long
fellow." and said among other things:
Evelyn has left me six or seven letters
and telegrams from the blackguard. If they
wish to begin a row, I am ready for It.
I prefer to reach New York so as to go
to Philadelphia and Pittsburg, and then
to Port Huron, In time for the wedding on
November 18. 1 would return to New York
In time to. meet the Lady Yarmoutn, who
lands on the 24th. The more row the bet
ter. Maybe we will be married after the Lad;
Yarmouth arrives. Maybe after the row.
Her mother doesn't sount.
The letter then referred to some un
married woman, whose name was omit
ted, as a "trickster," "schemer," etc.
Thaw referred evidently to MiSs Nesbit
and her mother when he spoke of them
as "unfortunate" and the "blackguards
who are blackmailing her."
"The msjtter of being married is most
secret." the letter continued. "If the suit
for kidnaping is begun, it must not be
mentioned, but we will need two staffs
of reporters. You get one staff, and I
know the kind I want and will secure
them when I land."
Nothing for "Wretched Mother."
The letter constantly referred to "that
blackguard," and said:
Miss X. would give alt she possessed If she
could have been sent to school by me in
stead of him. She should never have re
mained on the stage so long, and, If they
had listened to me, she would not. It re
sulted in her name being falsely connected
with two others beside that blackguard.
Poor girl! She was poisoned when she was
16 years old.
Remember that. If I die, my property is
all to go to my wife, but in the event of
her death, must go to her relatives. Her
wretched mother must not receive anything.
I would provide for her brother, however.
Poor girl! If I die she may not live to
The next letter read to the Jury,' dated
November 13, 1903, was also addressed to
Mr. Longfellow. It said in part:
Please send someone to inquire at 202 or
204, or perhaps 206 West Forty-fifth street,
if Miss is there, or where a. letter or

she came home. My responsibility is gone,
