THE MORNING- OKEGOMAX, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1907.
Declare 0. R. & N. Co. Has
Kept Up Excessive Distrib
THEIR APPEALS IGNORED
It. A. Lewis Testifies That -Table of
Comparative Rates Was Submit
ted to Tariff Director Stubbs,
Who Said, "Go to Law."
Portland Jobbers appeared before tjie
State Railway Commission yesterday
and told of -their grievances against the
Q. R. & X. Company. The taking of
this testimony substantially completed the
case for the Chamber of Commerce. The
railroad company will have an inning
now. W. W. Cotton, attorney for the
corporation, said at the end of yester
day's proceedings that half a day will
suffice for presenting the other side of
Tlie effect of the jobbers' testimony
was to supplement the general evidence
concerning excessive distributive rates in
troduced Wednesday. L. A. Lewis. T. B.
Honeyman and Henry Hahn were the
Jobbers called before the Commission and
It developed that their complaint against
the O. R. & N. Company was not limited.
The presentation of the Jobbers' side of
the case has occupied three session of
the Commission. During this time It has
been brought out that the local offices
have no facilities for giving Information
regarding the financial affairs of the
road; that the financial and all other
than the operating books are kept at
the New York office; that comparisons
with tariffs out of various other jobbing
centers show Portland shippers are
paying. from 25 to 145 per cent more for
the service via the O. R. & N. line and
that repeated complaints to the company
have availed the jobbers nothing.
What Defense Will' Be.
It probably will be contended by the
company that the comparative tables sub
mitted are unfair, failing to account for
physical conditions and differences in
population which affect the lines serving
different parts of the country. As to
the absence of the books of account the
company will urge that there is no need
for keeping them within the state, inas
much as any Information desired by the
Railway Commission may be obtained at
once upon request. The tariffs will also
The testimony of the three witnesses
yesterday was very similar. All are rep
resentative shippers and all had encoun
tered the same difficulties with the com
pany and felt the sting of the same un
fairness, so they said. They said a re
duction would benefit Jobbers, wholesalers
and consumers alike.
LJ A. Lewis testified that within the
past seven or eight years there has been
no material reduction of rates out of
Portland. Water competition had affected
the situation to the extent 6f showing a
reduction could well be made, since the
company had reduced Its rates two years
ago to every point touched by the Open
River Navigation Company's boat, the
J. N. Teal.
"Have you ever discussed the general
situation with the O. R. & N. company?"
Mr. Cotton asked.
Stubbs' Brusque Answer.
"No, because we were not allowed to,"
was the response. "Two years ago a
statement of comparative tariffs was
prepared and presented to J. C. Stubbs,
traffic director of the Harrlman lines.,
He brushed them aside. 'Go to law.' he
"in response to questions from J. N.
Teal, representing the Chamber of Com
merce, Mr. Lewis said he believed- the
company made a high rate purely for
revenue. In the case of Baker City, he
said that Mr. Cotton had told him there
was no defense for it. By reason of
discrimination in rates It was possible, he
said, to ship to Spokane In carload lots
and then reshlp from that point In less
than carload lots to Eastern Oregon at
a cheaper rate than to ship into Eastern
Oregon direct from Portland in less than
"Our complaint." he added, "has been
that the O. R. & N. has made conditions
which left Portland Jobbers under a han
dicap." As to where the consumer would get
off under a reduction, Mr. Lewis said in
reply to a query from Mr. Cotton, that
a reduction on sugar from San Francisco
from l to 80 cents would mean that the
consumer would get .' sugar 20 cents
Mr. Hahn's Testimony.
Henry Hahn had the same complaints
to make. He said that while the jobbers
had taken up the matter of rates it was
not alone the Jobber, but the wholesaler
and the consumer also who would benefit
by any reduction. Mr. Cotton wanted to
know how a reduction of rates would
affect Baker City and the witness replied
that it would benefit the consumers of
that point substantially.
As to a proposal to maintain rates here
and raise them elsewhere so as to read
Just the relation of rates and remove
some of the disadvantages under which
Jobbbers claim to labor, Mr. Cotton
wanted to know If such action would
arouse resentment by the Jobbers. The
witness replied indirectly, saying even
that might be fairer although the remedy
needed was a matter for the Commission
Mr. Honeyman was the last witness for
the Jobbers. In regard to reductions of
rates within the past seven or eight years
he said practically no changes had been
"We have had promises but nothing
ever came of them," he said, and added
that comparisons with other tariffs had
been made but had resulted In nothing
Mr. Cotton Cross-Examines.
"Are you a consumer, & partner of tne
consumer or a Jobber?" Mr. o Cotton
asked on cross-examination.
"I am a Jobber."
"Then as a Jobber you say that In the
past seven or eight years there has been
no material reduction of rates?"
"There have been some reductions, but
only such as to choke the volume of
"Sow If It has failed to stimulate job
bing, has It benefitted the consumer by
reductions that have been made? And
Is not the real matter of importance the
relation' of rates?"
"I think It Is the relation of rates that
concerns us jobbers."
Concerning the rates out of Spokane,
the witness said that while they may be
regarded as low the actual fact will show
different, considering the combinations of
rates. His Idea of a proper adjustment,
he said. Vas a different basis of rate
making by the company.
Mr. Teal Closes His Case.
Mr. Teal then said that would conclude
the testimony, at least for the time being.
He said that for the purposes of complet
ing the hearing he wished an order di
recting the company to p.roduce tables
showing the value of the O. R. & N.
Company's property in Oregon and an
other table on the business done In Ore
gon, separating state from inter-state
Mr. Cotton objected in both instances.
The presentation of the first table, he
said, could have no bearing on the hear
ing and would be wholly immaterial. As
to a statement of the business done, such
a table would require arbitrary divisions
on estimating interstate business.
Adjournment was then taken "until to
day at 9 A. M. when Mr. Cotton will call
R. B. Miller, general freight agent of the
O. R. & N. line to the witness stand. Mr.
Cotton stated that he would be able to
finish his side of the case in half a day.
BURTON .AN OREGON MAN
Bay City Labor Leader, Killed by a
Car, Once Lived Here. .
W. O. Burton, who was accidentally
killed by a streetcar in San Francisco
Tuesday night, was well known in this

ORGANIZES MOOT COURT
Presbyterian Men's Club on East
Side Enjoys Fake Trials.
The Hawthorne Park District Court
was organized in the lecture-room of the
Hawthorne Park Presbyterian Church the
first of the week by the Men's Club. The
first case tried was sensational. Pro
fessor R. R. Steele was indicted and
brought before the moot court on charge
of wife-heating. R. R. Glltner was the
presiding Judge and Ogelsby Young the
prosecuting attorney. Professor S. A.
Star defended Professor Steele, and suc
ceeded in proving an alibi. The Jury
was composed of three men and three
women. The evidence against Professor
Steele was strong, especially the testi
mony of Dr. A. W. Moore, who testified
as an expert as to the extent and nature
of the injuries Inflicted. However Pro
fessor Van Tyne and John M. Lewis
swore on the witness-stand that they
were with Professor eteele at the time
the assault and battery was alleged to
have been committed, and the Jury
brought in a verdict for acquittal without
It is announced that th grand jury of
the court is investigating charges against
Dr. Wilson, of Centenary Church, and Dr.
S. Earl DuBols. of the Grand-Avenue
Presbyterian Church, to the effect that
they have been using undue influence to
induce all deaf and dumb people to at
tend their churches. True bills are ex
pected to be returned. Dr. Shaffer, of the
First United Brethren Church, is also
under Investigation on a libel charge,
preferred by Satan. He Is charged with
using such terms as "Satan as a
Preacher," "Satan as an Editor," and
other similar odious comparisons in recent
sermons that have proved exceedingly
offensive to "His Satanic Majesty."

LAST OF THE WOOD BURNERS
Steamer Cascades Ties Up to Re
ceive Oil Plant.
The steamer Cascades has been laid up
for the installation of an oil-burning
plant. The vessel will be out of com
mission . for about two months, during
which time the Shaver Transportation
Company will handle the towing business
of the Cascades.
With the installation of an oil plant In
the Cascades the last of the wood burners
disappears. Fuel oil has forced the river
craft to desert the wood piles. Tears ago
every steamer operating on the Willam
ette and Columbia Rivers used .cordwood
for fuel. Wood-yards lined the banks
from the Cascades to Astoria and
from the mouth of the Willamette to
Eugene. Wooding up required time and
many deckhands. To the latter the oil
plant is a labor saver.

A light-draft boat to be operated In Mexi

agent for the mining company, is here
looking after the building of this craft.
The boat la being built knocked down. It
will he used in the transportation of ores
and will take the place of burros. The
plans for this craft show a wheel with
flanges to be placed near the front end
in a well, to aid It in climbing over sand

been decided that this wheel can be
untilized for that purpose. Experienced
boat builders do not favor such a scheme,

Institutes to Be Held Through
out State This Month.
FIRST AT CLATSKANIE
Series of Meetings Designed to In
struct Deputies and Their Sub
ordinate Officers in the
Workings cf the Order.
Mrs. Clara H. Waldo, State Lecturer for
the Patrons of Husbandry, who is now at
the Sargent Hotel, announces that a series
of Grange institutes will be held at cen
tral points within the next three weeks
for general educational purposes. The
first institute will be held at Clatskanie
next Monday. This Institute will be fol
lowed by others similar, held at the fol
lowing times and places for the re
mainder of the state: Hood River, Wed
nesday, November 13: Dufur, Friday No
vember 15; Albany, Thursday, November
21: Oregon City, Monday, November 25;
McMlnnvIUe, Tuesday, November 26.
These institutes will cover the whole
work of the subordinate Grange, and their
Importance to Patron3 of Husbandry will
be very great. They will be open to ail
fourth degree members in good standing,
and the executive committee of the State
Grange urges that each master, lecturer
and secretary of a Grange arrange to at
tend the institute held nearest him. The
meetings are not public, but are intended
for Patrons of Husbandry only. They are
held for the purpose of instructing depu
ties and officers of subordinate Granges,
and will be under the direction of Past
State Master B. G. Leedy, assisted by
Mrs. Waldo and Mrs. Mary S. Howard,
the State Secretary.
Plan of State Grange.
The plan for holding these institutes at
central points was adopted at the last
State Grange. They are to educate the
officers and members, and enlarge the list
of active workers in the ranks. They
will take up an entire day at the points
seleoted, and sometimes night sessions
may be held where deemed advisable and
profitable. Past State Master Leedy will
give instructionsIn the secret work,, and
Bhow the local "members where they can
improve their degree work and make it
more impressive on the candidate. State
Secretary Mrs. Howard will give Instruc
tions in the clerical work. In keeping the
accounts of members, making reports and
in all work along this line. Both will be
prepared to answer questions.
To Mrs. Waldo is assigned perhaps the
most important duty in the Institutes. As
State Lecturer she will cover the whole
field of legislation, explaining what the
pending measures are in which the Pat
rons may be interested. Their purport
will be set forth for the instruction of
Patrons, but not to influence their opin
ions one way or the other.
Mrs. Waldo will also conduct drills in
handling public meetings and instruct the
deputies as to the best way to handle
business and how to make public ad
dresses that will be most effective. She
wi also discuss the question of trans
portation, which is one of the problems
for farmers In this state.
Discusses Money Panic.
Mrs. Waldo, in speaking of the present
financial situation, said yesterday:
"The farmers are probably In the best
position to weather the present financial
storm. They are not uneasy, and will
not generally Interfere with their deposits
in the local banks. For some time they
have, been unable to get help at prices
that were reasonable. They have post
poned many Improvements for lack of
help. Farmers themselves have sent their
teams to work on the railroads and other
work. There will now he men to do work
on the farms henceforth. I have ten
miles of fencing on our farm that I have
been unable to get done. I could not even
get the posts made, but now I have two
men at work making posts. So there will
be work on the farms for those who want
"The farmer. If he be out of debt, will
be a little short of cash, but on the whole
he will suffer very little. If he toe in debt
he will have the same- difficulties to meet
that the city man must contend with."

The very thought of the hospital,
the operating table and the knife
strikes terror to her heart.
It is quite true that these troub
les may reach a stage where an ope

great many women have been cured
by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound after an operation has
been decided upon as the only cure.
The strongest and most grateful
statements possible to make come from women who by taking
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
made from native roots and herbs, have escaped serious operations, as
evidenced by Miss Rose Moore'scase, of 307 W. 26th St., N.Y. She writes:-
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:-"Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has
cured me of the very worst form of female trouble and I wish to express
to you my deepest gratitude. I suffered intensely for two years so that
I was unable to attend to my duties and was a burden to my family. I
doctored and doctored with only temporary relief and constantly objecting
