HOPEFUL LETTERS EXCHANGED
WITH OTHER CITIES.
Managers of Telegraph Companies
Report They Have Force to Send
Out All Business Offered.
Cheering news was received at the
headquarters of the striking telegraph
ers at the Esmond Hotel ' yesterday
from various cities throughout the
United States, and similar messages
were mailed from here to the men for
merly behind the keys In other cities.
Not a man has deserted the ranks of
the striking telegraphers during the
past few days.
A committee from the Telegraphers'
Union visited a meeting of the Freight
handlers' yesterday, and the speeches
of the strikers were received with
cheers. The Krelghthandlers declared
that they would do all In their power
to help the telegraphers, saying that
the move of the Federated Trades
Council In promising support to the
strikers met with their approval.
Two telegraphers appeared at the
Esmond yesterday morning and de
clared that they were with the circus
and had Just dropped around " to see
how the boys are getting along." The
visitors were soon convinced that the
boys were getting along very well, and
all were going to go out and see the
elephant. There were no down-ln-the-mouth
men around the Telegraphers'
headquarters all day yesterday, al
though so many went to church that
the rooms looked deserted for a time.
Letters received from Knoxville. Au
gusta, Atlanta and El Paso declared
that "all the boys are very jovial and
enthusiastic." The local operators say
that they had a wire from Louisville
yesterday denying the report that the
operators there had gone back to work.
A delegation of the strikers recently
called on the ofnVers of the Chamber of
Commerce and asked that organization
to take some action toward aiding the
men In their efforts for getting better
pay. As yet, the commercial body has
not taken any action In the matter, but
it Is thought that It will do so soon.
The members ,of the Telegraphers'
Union are making plans for a gala time
at their benefit ball, to be given In
Murlark Hall, Twenty-third and Wash
ington streets, next Thursday night.
-There will be many unique electric dec
orations, and telegraph Instruments
will be placed In booths along the
sides of the hall, so, besides talking,
there will be plenty of dot-and-dash
Manager John Annand, of the local
Postal office, said last night that six
men, including the chief operator and
himself, were at work here.
"We had all of our wires clear at 19
"and the New York and Chicago offices
were all clear by 2 o'clock. One reason
why we are doing so well Is because
our wires do not run into depots, and
so are not tampered with by country
When one mentions the country sta
tion agents to William Dumars, man
ager of the local Western Union of
fice, his eyes begin to flash and he
"Those hyenas In the country towns
are causing us lots of trouble," he de
clared last night. "Every one of them
ought to be sent to the penitentiary.
If It was not for them, we would be
doing our regular amount of business,
and could attend to it. We have all the
men here that we need."
"How many men have you at work
here?" was asked Mr. Dumars.
"Well, now, I told you we had
enough to do what work is required,"
he replied. "If we had more operators
we would simply have to let them go,
because we have all our wires working.
Two new men came in today, and one
from Pendleton yesterday."
The two who arrived yesterday were
reported at the strikers' headquarters
to be from Salem. It was also said at
the Esmond yesterday' that Churchll,
the operator brought from Oregon City
by Mr. Dumars, was quite 111 Friday
and Saturday from the effects of over
work. This Mr. Dumars denied last
night, saying that Churchill never felt
so well In his life.
REAL ESTATE DEALER DIES
J. E. Slsson Suddenly Expires
J. E. Sisson. a real estate dealer, occu
pying offices In the Washington Building,
died suddenly about 4 o'clock yesterday
afternoon In the office of Dr. . C. H.
Wheeler. In the Marquam Building. Mr.
Slsson was on a business call at the of
fice of E. J. McKeltrlck, in the Marquam
Building when he suddenly complained of
a severe pain over the heart. Mr. Mc
Keltrlck removed him to the office of
Dr. Wheeler, where he was treated. Mr.
Sisson expired within a few minutes.
Coroner Flnley was notified, and took
charge of the body.
Mr. Sisson left no family and so far
the county authorities have been unable
to locate any of his relatives. He was
well known In his business life.

IIS DUE HERE TODAY
CASHIER OK DEFUNCT BANK COMES
, FROM EAST.
Scapegoat of Failure Will Have Chance
to Shonlder Blame or Accuse
Interest in the failure of the Oregon
Trust & Savings Bank now centers In
the return of Cashier W. Cooper Mor
ris, who is expected to reach the city
today. Not only will Mr. Morris be able
to tell of the failure of his hurried trip
East, which was a forlorn hope to save
the bank from the crash that overtook
It or at least to postpone the inevitable,
but he will be asked to explain his al
leged transactions In high finance
charged to him by other bank officials
who accuse him of handling the bank's
money with a recklessness that they
characterize as criminal.
As yet Cashier Morris has had no
chance to defend himself, but has been
made the scapegoat of both president
and directors of the defunct Institution.
What he will have to say and whether
he will attempt to shift the blame upon
the others or will accept the odium for
the failure will be of importance to all
who are Interested in fixing the responsi
bility for the disaster to the bank.
No progress was made yesterday in the
slow work of listing the bank's visible
assets, but this will be resumed this
morning. President Moore did not go to
the bank yesterday, and Receiver Devlin
did not prosecute his tasS as usual. A
report to depositors, showing what they
may reasonably expect in the way of divi
dends, will be made by the receiver Just
as soon as the accounts can be gone over.
Meanwhile additions to the list of de
positors who are asking for telephone
securities in lieu of their deposits con
tinue to be made. Additions to the list
already published to the amount of nearly
$162,000 have been made voluntarily by
large depositors. This feature of the situ
ation is regarded as most favorable to a
satisfactory settlement of the claims of
the bank's creditors.
The suitcase full of securities taken
East by Cashier Morris to hypothe
cate for funds to tide the bank over Its
difficulty did not arrive yesterday, so far
as known, but this is thought to be due
to the fact that the express companies do
not make deliveries on Sunday, and the
bonds are doubtless already in the Wells
DISTRICT NEEDS HYDRANTS
Without Them Highland Engine
Company Will Be Handicapped.
The Fire Department will Install, at
Highland September 1, a fire engine
which will afford excellent protection
I to . vide. dUtrioL The nglce-Aouae
has a favorable location, and can re
spond promptly to calls in any direc
tion. It can follow Union avenue to
Woodlawn and Piedmont, or go on Al
berta street to East Twenty-eighth and
south on Union avenue. It can also
reach the carbarn district within rea
sonable time. It will be greatly handi
capped, however, in affording this large
district fire protection because of the
scarcity of hydrants, which are widely
scattered. At the carbarns on Kllings
worth avenue, where a considerable
business center has been developed,
there la a big water main, but no fire
hydrants. This condition prevails all
through this district, especially in
Woodlawn and east and west of Union
avenue. Between 60 and 100 fire hy
drants must be placed In this district
or the expense of installing a fire en
gine will be largely wasted.
Portland is extending toward the
north with rapid growth. Houses are
being built all through the terltory as
far as Columbia boulevard, but these
homes will remain unprotected unless
the fire engine at Highland is provided
with water connections.
The Nolta Improvement Association
has taken up the matter with the Ex
ecutive Board, in the hope of getting
hydrants placed at important points.
The hydrants in Piedmont are fairly
good, but there are practically none at
Woodlawn. . The Northeastern Im
provement Association Is also trying to
get fire hydrants in the Vernon section.
ARRANGE FOR TAFT'S VISIT

SELLS BEER FROM GRIP
DETECTIVES ARREST BALOOS
KEEPER WHO TURNS VENDOR.
Two Other Violation of Sunday-Closing
Law In Portland and One
Peddling liquor from a grip is the
latest method tried Sundays by the
would-be Samaritans in the t hirst -quenching
line, and L. Wise, a saloon
keeper at Eighth and Gllsan streets, is
the man caught in the act of using
this method to dispose of his wet goods
in violation of John Manning's edict
Acting Deteotlves Larfleld and New
ell, two of the latest acquisitions to the
police force, were the wily sleuths to
"get wise" to Mr. Wise's little game.
They witnessed a transaction whereby
a man employed in the terminal yards
was made the possessor of a bottle ef
beer, but did not see any money change
hands. It is supposed that the rail
roader has an account with Wise and
got the fluid by a previous agreement,
for the officers watched the saloon for
several minutes before the recipient
arrived and Wise came out of his place
with a hand grip In which reposed
several bottles. Opening his grip. Wise
passed one bottle over to his customer
or friend, as the case might be, and
the officers Invited him to accompany
them to the City Jail, where the saloon
man deposited $25 ball to Insure bis
appearance before Judge Cameron.
Wise was arrested last Sunday for a
similar offense, and was fined before
the Municipal Court.
Acting Detectives Kay and Klenlen
also discovered a thirst-dispenser In
the person of Monroe Bollch, who was
generously treating all the thirsty per
sons he met in the vicinity of Third
and Burnside streets, each of whom
was allowed to partake of the con
tents of a generously-proportioned jug
Bollch and George Benett. one of the
thirsty ones, were arrested and taken
before the authorities, where each was
required to deposit $25 as ball.
While near the circus grounds yes
terday afternoon. Detective Maher, of
the District Attorney's office, was at
tracted to Twenty-fourth and Thurman
streets, and on Investigation caught
Chris Kalmbach. a saloonkeeper at 795
Thurraan street, in the act of giving
liquor to five men whom he had invited
into the saloon. Maher informed Kalm
bach that an information would be filed
against him Monday, and that he would
have to answer to the charge of vio
lating the Sunday-closing law.
Sheriff Stevens, accompanied by Dep
uty Sheriff Wagner, made the rounds of
the county yesterday, and at Llnnton
found a violation of the closing law.
C Carlson, who conducts a saloon near
that place, yesterday had four men in
side drinking when the officers ar-'
The doors were all locked and en
trance was effected by Deputy Wagner,
who climbed through a trap door ini
the celling and dropped among thaaur-j
prised law-breakers. Carlson was ar-l
rested and required to put up $25 ball!
for his appearance at court today.

THE LATEST BEEF
"Smith Must Go"
The Portland manager of the Beet
Trust has sent forth the edict: "Smith
must go." We agree with him. Smith
must go. Smith shall go but he shall
go forward. When the Beef Trust mar
kets are in the Junk pile, when the
Beef Trust Itself is on the same rack
of torture as the Standard Oil. Smith
will still be here, stronger and more
powerful, still giving the people fresh
In Chicago the Beef Trust makes it
a practice to freeze all surplus cuts of
meat, such as loins of pork, loins of
beef, etc. These are often held in cold
storage six months and even a year and'
are then shipped any place the Beef
Trust finds a market. Tons of this
thawed-out frozen stuff is being ship
ped here and sold In Portland and vicin
ity under the name of fresh Oregon'
meat. When you get a piece of taste
less, straw-tasting soft meat, class It
up as the thawed-out article.
Smith's meats are exclusively Smith's.
