MEETING A FRIENDLY ONE
General Manager O'Brien Explalns
Folnts In Doubt to Satisfaction of
Visitors Daily Train Between
Eugene and Wendling.
After a conference yesterday afternoon
rith General Manager O'Brien of the
rlarriman lines In this state, the delega
tion of Eugene business men appointed to
confer with Mr. O'Brien regarding better
ranroaa laemtiea for that city left for
home entirely satisfied with the result of
the conference. Points on which the com
mittee wanted information were cleared
up and better arrangements for handling
iraf no at Eugene will be ' made by the
Southern Pacific Company. The meeting
net ween the general manager and the
Eugene citizens was a very friendly one
and resulted In a better understanding on
The committee asked for better train
service between Eugene and Wendlina
and was assured that plans had already
ceen made, to inaugurate a dally mixed
train service "between the two points. This
will be started within a short time and
the Eugene men expressed themselves as
perfectly satisfied with this arrangement.
'A new depot building for Eugene was
also taken up. General Manager O'Brien
told the committee that plans are already
under way for better station facilities
there and that work will probably be
started wtihln the next 60 days to pro
vide the necessary changes. The com
mittee was also pleased with this in
formation. The visitors also asked that arrange
ments be made at Eugene for terminals
for the Oregon Eastern Railroad, the Har
rlman line surveyed across Central Ore
gon from Natron to Vale. Mr. O'Brien
told them that this' matter Is not en
tirely under his jurisdiction and he will
have to consult with others before making
any definite announcement as to Oregon
Eastern terminals. He pointed out that
the construction of this line cannot be
accomplished for some time yet and that
therefore any discussion as to the loca
tion of terminals Is somewhat premature.
STEAM IiOCOMOTIVES WILIj GO
Electric Engines - Will Supersede
Them on O. W. P. tine.
By the first of next year the steam
locomotive now In use on the Ore
gon Water Power lines to haul freight
trains will go. They will ba super
ceded by modern electrio locomotives,
which have been ordered In the East
and will be delivered by December 1.
These locomotives are the latest thing
in electrical construction and will be
. u v. men nuiu ill HUB BlBie.
Two huge electric locomotives of steel,
weighing 40 ton each, are now being
built In the East for delivery this
Fall. Two other similar machines of
85 tons each are being built in the
local shops. The 35-ton engines are
of 800 horsepower and the 40-ton lo
comotives will have 400 horsepower.
The latter engines will haul as heavy
a- freight train as the ordinary 60-ton
These locomotives are eight-wheelers
and each wheel Is connected up with
wheels. This adds greatly to the trac
tive power of the locomotives.
In addition to these engines, the
Portland Railway, Light & Power
Company-will receive a large number
of passenger and freight cars during
the Summer and Fall. Orders are in
for 94 passenger coaches, 34 of which
will go to the O. W. P. division and
60 'to the allied lines, and for 10 box
cars, 40 flat cars and two cabooses.
. Expenditures during the present
year for new equipment on the lines
of the company will amount to over
$520,000. Jn addition a very large sum
will be spent for trolley wire and
other material necessary to change the
freight system on the O. W. P. from
steam to electrical power.
Reduced Rate for Medrord Carnival.
Southern. Pacific passenger officials
have authorized a reduced rate of one
and one-third fare for the round trip
to Medford from all points on the Ore
gon lines, on account of the Medford
Merchants' Carnival and Fruit Fair,
which will be held there from August
6 to August 10. The affair' will bo
given under the direction of the Med
ford Commercial Club, and promises to
be one of the biggest events of the
year in the Rogue River country. The
Oregon State Horticultural Society will
hold its annual meeting at Medford
at the same time and the reduced fare
will be used by those wishing to at
tend the latter gathering. The car
nival will have a long programme of
athletic sports, literary and musical
features and a large electrical display
Xew Train on the O. R. & N.
A new daily passenger train between
Pendleton and Walla Walla that will

Broken Sewer Delays Work.
By the breaking of a sewer near tha
sealehouse In the terminal yards yester
day, the weighing of cars was Interferred
with. All cars with loads to be dis
charged are weighed at this house, but
the damage done by the broken sewer
makes this Impossible. It is not ex
pected, however, that the accident will
delay the discharge. of cars for long aa
the sewer will be repaired today.
FEARS THEJTELLOW PERIL
San Francisco Merchant Complains
of Japanese Invasion.
Timothy Pearson, father of the mem
bers of the firm of Pearson Bros., Front
street commission men. is In Portland on
a visit to his sons. Mr. Pearson is In
business in San Francisco. He is not
very confident of the early rehabilitation
of the city, but says that eventually the
"Old town" will again take first place
in the business of the Coast, and that
even now bank clearings' show that a vast
amount of trade is being handled.
The greatest fear Mr. Pearson has for
n Francisco's future Is the menace to
trade and industrial pursuits threatened
by the large and constantly increasing
Influx of Japanese. He says they are en
gaged In every conceivable pursuit, and
are monopolizing the best parts of the
city. The only line they have not Invaded
so far Is the commission business, but he
says it Is only a question of a short time
when they will have made Inroads upon
that also tor the reason that many Jap
anese are buying up valuable farming
lands and will soon be in a position to
furnish enormous quantities of produce
and enter, into competition with Ameri

LOST IN MOUNTAIN
Two Young Women Wander
Away Near Welch's Camp.
SEARCH WITHOUT RESULT
Night Spent in Woods by Girls and
Hunt by Campers Resumed In
Morning, With What Suc
cess' Is Not Yet Known.
Lost in one of the almost impenetra
ble canyons of the Cascades near
Welch's and the probable prey of the
wild animals that infest that region, is
the plight of two young women, reports
Thomas McCusker, who returned from
that mountain resort yesterday.- - The
names of the young women, who were
camping with friends at Welch's, were
not learned by Mr. McCusker and owing
to the distance of Welch's from a tele
phone, it was impossible last night to
learn whether or not any trace of the
missing women had been found.
Early Sunday afternoon the two young
women, in company of Mr. and Mrs.
Robinson, of this city, left camp for a
flower-picking stroll up the side of the
mountain. After going a short distance
the quartet separated, Mr. and Mrs.
Robinson selecting one path and the girls
taking another, and that was the last
that has been seen of the young women.
Mr. and Mrs. Robinson also lost their
way and but for a pocket compass and
a slight acquaintance with the topog
raphy of the surroundings' they would
probably not have succeeded in reaching
camp. As it was they did not find their
way out of the mountain until late in
They immediately reported the dis
appearance of their companions who
were supposed to have wandered into
one of the canyons. Several of the
campers, reinforced by a party of sur
veyors that was camped near by,
promptly Instituted a search, but little
progress had been made when darkness
made it necessary to defer further efforts
to locate the lost ones until morning.
Early yesterday morning the search was
resumed, but with what success could
not be learned last night. '
At the Stock Theaters
"The Royal Slave" at the Star.
FRANK D'CAMP. ' heavy man and
stage director at the Star for the
past two months, comes to the front
this week -in the title role of "The
Royal Slave." The success of the play
is largely due to the efforts of Mr.
DeCamp, and his wife, Eunice Murdock,
Without them the cast would be weak.
The bill Is one of the best ever offered
y the Star Stock Company and a dis
tinctive hit, a success in every sense
of the word. This is not Mr. DeCamp's
first appearance in this difficult role.
For three years he played the part on
the road under the direction of Gordon
Raymond Whittaker and Margaret
Pitt, two of the Star favorites, have
left 'the company and Charles Burnl
son, who for some time past has been
playing minor parts, is now playing
leads: Claudia Coloma, the new lead
ing lady, made her first appearance
yesterday, and if all her work is on a
par with that of last night she will
become one of the most popular foot
light favorites of the city.
The story of the play is nothing out
of the ordinary. It has some novelty,
ST i -KS ? ' .
:TYY?:Y :i mfzm4
but the plot runs in the usual melo
dramatlo line. Miss Coloma, Miss
Eunice Murdock. Mr. DeCamp and Mr.
BurnUon hold the center of the stage,
while -Frank Connors and little Miss
Fields do a comedy stunt. Miss Fields
sings a clever song that draws hearty
"Tho Royal Slave" will run all week,
vtih matinees today, Thursday, Sat
urday and Sunday.
Frontier Drama at Lyric.
THERE is plenty of life and action
at the Lyric this week in "The
Road to Frisco," astory of the days
of '49. There are miners, and plenty of
them; plainsmen and camp followers,
all of whom go "heeled" armed to the
teeth, each carrying a six-shooter in
his belt There is also an' English
lord, accompanied by his valet, also
the inevitable waif and the big-hearted
woman who acts as camp cook. Pic
ture this aggregation and you can
form an idea of the play. The plot
is about the same as that of the usual
frontier melodrama. It is the story of
a young woman, heir to a lost gold
mine, pursued through life by a heart
less woman, who by lying and schem
ing tries to cheat her out of her own.
But her plans are foiled, mainly
through the efforts of the camp waif
and the heroine's ardent admirer, the
Verna Felton, the favorite of the
Lyric, is cast as the waif and does her
usual good work. Irving Kennedy, as
the titled Englishman, is another play
er deserving of mention. Harry
Blanchardr- as the valet; Forrest Sea
bury, as Pipes - Flnnegan, and . Mrs.
Clara Allen, as Moll Casey, keeps the
audience convulsed with laughter.
"The Road to Frisco" will make good
with those who like life in a play, for
there Is plenty of it. . The play will
run all week.
At the Vaudeville Theaters
THE kind of vaudeville that Manager
I Errickson continues to give his
patrons should appeal to the general
public as very good, indeed, barring the
illustrated ballad singing of Joe Thomp
son, which is calculated to fatigue those
who sit patiently through his portion of
the entertainment in order that they may
see the rest of the show. The perform
ance opens with . Cavana In a novelty
tight-wire act which proves to be one
of the very best of its kind ever seen on
the stage of the Grand. He accomplishes
some wonders of equilibrium and con
tortion that entitle him to a position
among the best in the business. Grace
Orma, a singing and talking comedienne,
proves to be properly entertaining. Burns,
Morris & Co., are seen In an amusing
skit called "What Happened .to O'Hara."
The dancing of Gllmore and Castle la a
distinct feature of the show. Allen Shaw,
one of the most skillful coin and card
manipulators to be found anywhere is a
revelation and was Immensely popular
with, the audiences yesterday.
The feature act is Beatrice Moreland
and Percy Hunting in a tabloid farce
called "Taming a Husband." Hunting Is
a very clever comedian and succeeds in
keeping up -a roar of laughter during most
of his time on the stage. Miss Moreland
is an attractive woman and a reasonably
capable actress, but she Is not the equal
of her partner. The motion pictures prove
to be fully as amusing as could be desired.
The Grand offers a good show this week
and vaudeville lovers will make no
mistake In patronizing the popular Washington-street
THIS week's bill at Pantages is an
average" one and elicited a consider
able degree of enthusiasm yesterday when
it was presented for the first time. The
Beau Valr Trio, which is featured as the
top-line act is especially noteworthy. It
is an Indian novelty sketch which is a
wide departure from what is customarily
seen on the vaudeville stage. One of the
trio is a full-blood Indian and is one of

Sorely Afflicted, He Was Cured After

There are still people who say that
partial paralysis cannot be cured.
If yon have partial paralysis or some
other severe nervous disorder, do you
think it is better to be treated by
some one who insists that you axe incur

his own words is as follows:
"In 1898 I was attacked with terrible
twitching sensat ions and numbness all
over my body, which my physician said
was paralysis and which he attributed
to a bullet wound received during the
"I seemed to be getting paralyzed all
over and finally could hardly walk. My
eyes became weak and I had to get
stronger glasses. I could not move the
lid of one of my eyes and my face and
mouth were drawn over to the right side
to such an extent that I oould not speak
distinctly. I was also troubled with
palpitation of the heart.

the few genuine aborigines in the thea

and one of which the management may
well feel proud. Rome and Ferguson ap
pear In a rough and tumble comedy act
and diffuse an excellent quality of fun.
The Yalto dtio, of whirlwind dancers,
are among the swift ones In the dancing
line. This Is their first appearance here
and they are worth seeing. The Southern
Quartet, which Is not new to Portland,
has some new songs and Is reasonably
good although not such a phenomenal hit
as to create a sensation.
Ella Hazlett is a fair singing and
dancing soubrette who succeeds in being
entertaining for a little while. Jean
Wilson, one of the few men who has a
license to sing Illustrated songs maintains
his reputation this week and the biograph
exhibits some Interesting pictures. No
body will go wild over the Pantages
offering this week but it Is worthy a visit.

CRUSHING BLOW.TO TILYOU
Ivoss of Steeplechase Park Again
Makes Him Poor Man.
NEW TORK. July 29. Georpe C. Tllyou,
chief owno- of Steeplechase Park. Coney
Island, which was burned early Sunday,
has for years been one of the picturesque
figures of Goney Island. He has lived
near the ocean's roar practically all his
lifew- and was one of Coney Island's
pioneers In tho amusement line. Years
ago, when only a small part of the beach
was utilised as a pleasure resort, Tllyou
bought much of the adjoining land, and
these holdings In times of stress have put
him on his feet again.
Sunday's Are was only one) of several
hard blows that have come to Tilyou.
Some years ago, when Johnny McKane
was "Czar of Coney Island." Tllyou
gained his enmity by opposing certain of
McKane's projects. So strong was Mc
Kane's Influence that Tilyou's enterprises
began to fall, and he bad himself stated
that his affairs were in serious shape
when McKane's downfall came because of
his utter contempt of election And other
laws. It Is said Tllyou was at the Grand
Central station to see McKane the day
the lattr started under guard for Sing
Tllyou has announced that he will not
rebuild at Steeplechase Park, but friends
who know the man say he will change his
mind when the first blow which has Just
been received wears off. It was charac
teristic of Tilyou Sunday to take what
profits he could from the sad situation by
selling tickets at 10 cents apiece to peo
ple who wanted to enter his grounds and
see how little ho has left. He also put up
a cheerful sign thanking people for past
f a vorH and sympathy.
An idea of the size of the Sunday fire
may be gained when it Is said the area
burned aggregated about 30 acres. From
200 to 300 firms and individuals were put
out of business by the fire, which caused
a financial loss -of about il.000.000. The
Insurance aggregates only 1180,000. A
cigarette stub, landing In some wast
paper, caused the trouble.
Great Oil Well In Utah.
SALT IAKE CITY, July 2S. After
making a visit to the new oil well at Vir
ginia City, In the extreme northeastern
corner of Utah, A. F. Phillips, of the
Tribune, summarizes the conditions there
In this form:
"The Virginia Oil & Development Com
pany Is pumping 100 barrels of oil a day
from Its 60-foot well. The well will un
doubtedly become a gusher If shot, but.
the management does not desire a nat
ural flow until It acquires facilities for
handling the oil. The oil la believed to
have a paraffin base, although this is
not positively demonstrated as yet."
Samples brought by Mr. Phillips are
now In the. hands of a chemist. At pres

isfied to buy and build
j'our home there.
