BEING HEARD HERE
Lytle's Tillamook Road and the
Astoria & Columbia Line
JUDGE BURNETT PRESIDES
Pacific Railway & Navigation Asks
for a Permanent Injunction
Against Its Rival Com
promise Is Possible.
TVhether the Astoria & Columbia River
Railroad shall be allowed to build
Its tracks over the right of way
surveyed by the Pacific Railway & Navi
gation Company is the bone of contention
In the injunction suit brought by the
latter company, which is being heard be
fore Judge Burnett, of the Circuit Court
for Marion County. The suit was origin
ally brought in Tillamook County, and
Judge Galloway intended to hear It. but
on account of his being busy. Judge
Burnett consented to come to Portland
and handle the case.
At the preliminary hearing yesterday,
held In Snow & McCamant's office, were
present E. E. Lytic, president of the
;. Pacific Railway & Navigation Company:
Auditor Ueyoe. of the name road, and the
Astoria & Columbia River people were
represented by their counsel. Snow & Mc
Camant. Both companies have surveyed
lines between Nehalem and Tillamook
. '. Bay, and the Pacific Railroad & Navlga-
, tion Company has enjoined the Astoria &
Columbia from building its tracks over a
certain point near Garvote, where there
Ik a cliff, and only 60 feet available on
which to construct a line. Both com
panies want to Jay their tracks, and
operate trains around the same point.
Mr. Lytle was on the stand, and offered
to compromise to a certain extent and
give the Astoria & Columbia choice of 25
feet on the coast side or on the Inland
side. In which case, both companies can
lay their rails on the same right of way.
Auditor Peyoo also favored this plan,
. but was not willing that the entire right
of way at this point be given over to the
. defendants, as It would shut them out
entirely, and the Lytle company has
already built its line from Buxton to
Hlllsboro. and Is now constructing its
road to Tillamook Bay, and has surveyed
the entire right of way to Astoria through
; Seaside, Nehalem, Garvote, Hobsonville
and Bay City.
According to Judge Burnett, it will take
ill of this week to get In all of the testi
mony, and examinations, so that no de
cision will be had before Saturday or
Monday. The feeling on both sides ap
pears to be that a compromise wilr finally
oe affected whereby both the plaintiff
and defendant will divide the right of
way at the point contested, and build
their tracks side by side.
FEDERAL LAW IS VIOLATED
Government Sues Railroads Under
Livestock Shipment Act.
United States Attorney Bristol yes
terday filed two suits against the O.
It. & N.. and one suit against the
Northern Pacific Railroad, charging
violation of the new Federal statute
which limits the number of hours that
a railroad company may keep live
stock on board its trains without pro
viding food, water and rest. One of
the suits against the O. R. & N. grows
out of the shipment of a bunch of
rattle from Payette. Idaho, to The
Dalles. The cattle were on the cars
forty hours. The other case is that of
a shipment of cattle from Colfax,
"Wash., to The Dalles. The animals
were on the train 46 hours. The
rase against the Northern Pacific is
the result of a shipment of cattle from
Kent. Wash., to Tho Dalles. The
animals were on tho train 40 hours,
without food or rest.
The three suits that were filed yes
terday are the first arising in Oregon
since the law went into effect last
June. The law provides that the rail
road company shall not keep cattle,
sheep or swine on a train longer than
28 hours without, and only 36 hours
with the consent of the owners. Since
the law -went Into effect, railroads have
dally violated it. If found guilty, the
railroad companies are liable to a fine
of 500 for each car.

THOMAS STOCK SUING
DEMOCRATIC CLUBS HOLD VER
ITABLE LOVE FEAST.
Harmony Prevails at Gathering of
Faithful Called to Lay Plans
There may be some misguided people
In Portland who believe that the Demo
crats of the Rose City cannot hold a
harmonious meeting. They should have
been at the gathering of the Multnomah
Democratic Club, held last night In the
offices of John B. Ryan In The Oregonian
building. Over 40 members of the club
were present and from start to finish
It was a George H. Thomas love feast.
J. M. Malley, president of the club,
was In the chair and the ball was set
rolling when he called for reports from
members of the club living in the various
wards of the city. One after aaother of
these members reported that Thomas'
candidacy for Mayor on the Democratic
ticket had taken a decided turn for the
better during the past week. They gave
as a reason for this that the Democrats
had about made up their minds that there
would be but one ' Democratic nominee
for Mayor at the coming primaries.
Mr. Thomas owing to a business en
gagement was not present, but a letter
which he sent to President Malley, ex
pressing his regrets at not being able
to be present, was read and received with
applause. Other Democratic wheel horses
were present and made speeches. Among
those who told the faithful how a victory
for tho Democratic ticket from top' to
bottom could be won at the June election
were: D. M. Watson, Andrew Jackson
McAllister, George L. Hutchin, W. I.
Foley and Harry E. Proudtn.
Plans for making the coming primary
election and the June election a whirl
wind success were discussed. To start
the campaign there is to be a joint mass
meeting of the Multnomah Democratic
Club and the Bryan Democratic Club.
This is believed by the party workers
to be a great movement, for Thomas is
an ardent admirer of William Jennings
Bryan. Thomas will be on hand at this
meeting to speak for himself, and the
other Democratic candidates will be in
vited to attend the meeting and talk.
Elevep new members were enrolled on
the Democratic Club's register. They
were: William Kendall, A. J. McAllister,
D F. Campbell, D. Sherrett. H. 13, Proud
in, E. M. Mack, A. A. Kadderly. W. H.
Jenkins. J. C. IJllis, J. C. Welch and
C, C. Harris.
Only one reference was made to Mayor
Lane at tie. meeting, and that was when
Thomas' Tetter was read. In this letter
Thomas referred to his call on the Mayor
on March 16, and said: .
Attempts have been made to create capi
tal out of my having, as chairman, called
upon the Mayor on March 16. That call was
formal and strictly within the line of a
party service and solely for the purpose of
securing a Democratic partisan candidate.
Since the Mayor has withdrawn from the
Democratic primaries. It is apparent that he
does not care to be a partisan candidate.
His withdrawal left an open field and our
party without a candidate. My petition will
be tiled with Auditor Devlin tomorrow.
H. G. Heitkemper has decided to accept
the Democratic nomination for Council
man for the Sixth Ward. Heltkemper's
name was placed on the Democratic
ticket at the joint meeting which placed
Thomas' name at the head of the ticket.
He at first decided not to enter the race,
but was later prevailed upon to accept
the nomination. Yesterday he filed his
BMBE8S TO RAISE PRICES
AGREE OX 35-CENT RATE FOR
Shopowners Sign Agreement, to Go
Into Effect May 15 Cost of
It la probable that after May 15 Port
land men will be obliged to pay 35 cents
for fashionable hair-cutting, instead of
25 cents, as at present. At a Joint meet
ing of 75 boss barbers and the executive
committee of the Barbers' Union, at Drew
Hall, last Monday night, a committee of
three boss barbers, with Frank T. Rogers
as chairman, was appointed to canvass
all the shops In Portland and. obtain sig
natures to an agreement to raise the
price of hair-cutting to 35 cents after
There are 117 barber shops in Portland.
Of these, the chairman of the committee
reports that 106 have signed the agree
ment, and that probably only six or seven
proprietors will not sign. These, he says,
ae running nonunion shops, where a 15
cent rate for hair-cutting Is In force. He
believes these shops will raise the price
to 25 cents, which will make the ratio
about the same with reference to the
"They are getting 35 cents in other
Coast cities," said Rogers, "and why
should we not have it? The cost of liv

the materials barbers use. This is a
move which we should have made long
ago, but we did not know whether ail
the shops were ready for it.

PLEA OF ISLANDERS
Taft Tells Why Porto Rico
Can't Get Citizenship.
CONGRESS STANDS IN WAY
Reminds People They Enjoy Ameri
can Markets and the Substantial
Rights of Citizens Only Senti
ment Remains to-Be Gratified.
PONCE, P. R.. April 17. Secretary
Taft and his party. Governor Wlnthrop
and the insular officials accompanying
them, arrived this afternoon. A ban
quet in honor of the Secretary was
given by the city last night.
Hermlnlo Diaz of the .executive
Council made a long speech, in which
he introduced Mr. Taft. He made a
stronar plea for citizenship and ex
pressed the hope that Mr. Taft would
unite, with President Roosevelt against
Speaker Cannon, who, when here re
cently, gave the Porto Ricans little
hope In the matter of citizenship.
Mr. Taft then spoke vigorously In
reply, saying in part:
Enjoys Equal Tariff Rights.
Again I am urged to give a full and spe
cific declaration regarding (he policy of the
United States toward the people of Porto
Rico. I am only a humble member of Pres
ident Roosevelt's Cabinet. Whatever I may
think or whatever I may do are matters of
little importance to the people of this Island.
I can only invoke your attention to the fact
that President Roosevelt has visited Porto
Rico and the island has been visited by Mr.
Root, the Secretary of State, and by Mr.
Cannon, in some respects the most powerful
man in the- republic. What those visits in
dicate Is this:
That the people of the United States have
a deep affection for the people of Porto Rico
and feel more kindly toward them and have
a greater Interest in them than in the peo
ple of uba or the Philippines. The United
States has gathered Porto Rico to her bosom
and given her that which njeans the mate
rial progress of the island the benefit of
the markets of the United States. She has
given her the markets and the prosperity
she enjoys today. She has given every Porto
Rlcan the same liberty enjoyed by the peo
ple of the United States.
You say you have not been given citizen
ship. President Roosevelt has recommend
ed that citizenship be given, but
there have been Congressional dif
ficulties with reference to this mat
ter. I am not dealing, however, with gen
eralities, but with the concrete facts. 1 ask:
What Is it? Is it that a Porto Rican does
not enjoy what an American enjoys? You
have every guarantee and Becurlty which a
citizen of the United states has under the
Constitution. You have the right of habeas
corpus and the trial by Jury and, when you
are in a foreign country, the same flag pro
tects you that protects a citizen of the
United States. Therefore, while President
Roosevelt urges citizenship, he urges it on
the ground of gratifying the sentiment of
the people of the island. But when you come
to examine the facts of what you ask, the
question Is whether it is not nominal rather
Mr. Taft was cheered at the close of
his remarks. He is the second Secre
tary of War to visit Ponce. Secretary
Alger came here eight years ago. Mr.
Taft and his party left today for
CATK. P. R., April 16. (Delayed in
transmission.) Secretary Taft and
party arrived here at noon from San
Juan by way of Cayguas and were en
tertained for two hours by Major Grif
fith, the commanding officer here, and
Mrs. Griffith. After luncheon at the
military barracks the Secretary re
viewed the troops and Inspected the
reservation in anticipation, it is said,
of the possible dlsbandment of the
Porto Rican provisional regiment next
year. Later in the day the Secretary
and "his party left for Ponce.
BEGINS TARIFF RETALIATION
France Raises Coffee Duties to
Force Action by Congress..
WASHINGTON. April 17. The reason
for the issue in Paris yesterday of the
decree Imposing the maximum duties
on coffee imported from the United
States and Porto Rico Is said at the
State Department to be dissatisfaction
of the French government at the fail
ure of the Unjted States Senate to act
upon the French reciprocity treaty,
which has been pending before that
body for several years. Added to this.
It is said. Is a suspicion upon the part
of the French government that the
negotiations now in progress between
.the United States and Germany relative
to the tariff upon American goods Im
ported into Germany conceal some ad
vantage to be bestowed upon German
trade with the United States In which
French trade is not to share.
This decree is regarded as the be
ginning of a systematic effort to bring
such pressure to bear upon the Ameri
can Congress, through the imposition
of restrictions upon the American ex
port trade as will force tho whole
Subject of reciprocity upon its atten
tion at the beginning of the next ses
sion. Tne State Department officials fear
that this action is but the precursor of
similar attacks upon American trade
by other nations of Europe. It is
feared that the effect of tho French
decree will be disastrous to Porto Rico,
which at present finds almost its only
market for coffee In France, now that
the Spanish market Is closed by ex
BEAIXV TO FORGIVE OFFENSE
Though He Insulted President,
Swedish Consul May Remain.
WASHINGTON, April 17. Although
the State Department officials decline
to discuss the case of Charles A. A.
Ekstromer, the Swedish Vice-Consul at
St. Louis, who became persona non
grata with this Government because of
a letter he recently wrote to President
Roosevelt concerning the President's
refusal to receive a St. Louis delega
tion, it is said that he has received
encouragement in his efforts to have
rescinded the action of the State De
partment in canceling his exequatur.
The encouragement took the form, it
is said, of a hint of an unofficial char
acter that If the Swedish government,
through its representative in Washing
ton, should ask that Ekstromer be for
given ttae request would be granted.

OREGON FORESTS SUPREME
EASTERN FIRM COMES HERE
FOR BIG TIMBERS.
Logs Cut In This State Will Go Into
Dredges for Panama
Oregon' fame as the home of big trees
has been investigated by a Chicago man
and the Beaver State has backed up her
reputation by delivering the goods. After
spending four weeks among the mills of
the Pactflo Northwest and making a
thorough canvass of the big plants on the
Sound. James W. Dunlap. representing
the sale department of the Featherstone
Foundry & Machine Company, of Chicago,
came to Portland yesterday to purchase
12 SO-foot timbers 24x34. While the pur.
chase was made from the Flttock & Lead
better Lumber Company, at its mill In
Vancouver, Wash., the credit belongs to
the Beaver State, since the logs from
which these huge timbers were cut came
from an Oregon forest.
The 12 timbers average five tons each in
weight and contain in the aggregate about
28.000 feet board measure of lumber. De
livered at their destination. Sparrow
Point. Md., they will be worth about JS00.
Mr. Dunlap's company has the con
tract for supplying the Government with
a number of large dredges to be used on
the Panama Canal. The timbers were
Bhlpped from Vancouver yesterday via the
Northern Pacific, two big fiat ears being
required for their accommodation. They
are being sent direct to Sparrow Point.'
where they will be placed on dredges and
towed to the Isthmus.
"I had traveled for more than a month
ell through the timber states of the
Northwest, spending the greater part of
the time In the logging camps of the
Sound," said Mr. Dunlap yesterday, "but
I waa unable to find any camp that had
logs In stock from which timbers of the
desired dimensions could be cut. The
timbers I purchased t Vancouver were

specifications. They are unquestionably
the finest I hava ever seen, clear and
