Hil! Lines Refuse to Accept
Plan of Harriman Interests,
and Will Build.
FREIGHT YARDS SEPARATE
If Hill Roads Cannot Make Satis
factory Arrangements for Use of
Present Station, Will Erect
Passenger Depot Also.
Separate freight terminals in Portland
for the Hill and Harriman Interests are
now considered certain and it is even
likely that two different patfeenger term
inals here will be established. There is
little hope that the terminal differences
will be adjusted and the rival railroad
lines will undoubtedly maintain separate
stations in North Portland. The Hill lines
will probably withdraw from the Union
Station as far as freight traf
fic goes at any rate, and quite likely
their passenger trains will be kept out
by the Harriman people. Each interest
will transact Its own business at Its own
W. C. Nutt, general manager for the
Fortland & Seattle Railway, who was in
the city yesterday from his Tacoma
headquarters, is of the opinion that the
terminal difficulties are impossible of
peaceful, settlement and that each in
terest will keep to its own terminal
property. This will leave the O. R. & N.
and Southern Pacilic lines in possession
of the present Union Depot, while the
Northern Pacific. Great Northern. As
toria & Columbia River and Portland
& Seattle traffic will be handled at the
new Hifl terminals west and north of
the union terminal.
States Position of Hill Lines.
"We now propose to go ahead and
maintain our own terminals," declared W.
('. Nutt, general manager of the Portland
& Seattle yesterday. "We feel that we
are not wholly at fault for the failure
of the different roads to agree .upon a
common terminal. The rock upon which
the negotiations split was the question
of the sale or lease of our terminal prop
erty, which lies alongside the Harriman
terminals. We offered a leuse during the
life of the Northern Pacific Terminal
Company, which is 25 years. We felt
that this is reasonable and would amount
in effect to a sale for it would give the
company absolute control of the land in
"We have been minority stockholders
In the terminal property, owning 40 per
cent of the stock only, while the Harri
man people held the remainder. Our
agreement to lease our lands to a com
mon terminal was conditional upon the
equal division of this stock. This point
was yielded and we thought matters
were about to be agreed upon when
Mr. Harriman himself stuck at the lease
proposition and announced that unless
we would sell, the agreement could not
be carried out. We thought our propo
sition a fair one in view of the fact that
our terminals are bigger and will be
better than those already in use. .
One Station for Passenger Trains.
"It is probable that we will negotiate
with the Harriman people for the use of
the Union Station by the Portland &
Seattle trains. It is of about equal ad
vantage to the roads to have passenger
trains enter the same station. Freight"
terminals are not of so much importance.
If it is not satisfactory to the Harri
man Interests to have Hill passenger
trains enter the Union Station, we will
build a passenger depot of our own on
our terminal blocks.
"We have appealed to the courts for
the right to cross the Harriman tracks in
order to reach our terminal. We have
no doubt that the courts will give lis
General Manager Nutt says Portland &
Seattle trains will be running into Van
couver within six weeks or two months.
While the weather has been unfavorable
to rapid construction during the past few
weeks, the labor supply is better and all
possible haste is being made In laying
track. Mr. Nutt says H. M. Adams, the
new general freight and passenger agent
for the North Bank road, will open his
Portland headquarters about January 1.
EXCUKSIO.V TO CALIFORNIA
Business Men of Inland Empire
AVill A'islt Southern Cities.
A big excursion of Inland Empire busi
ness men, from Spokane to California,
has been arranged by General Passenger
Agent McMurray of the Harriman lines
In this territory. The start will be made
from Spokane, February 7, at 8:30 P. M.
The following day will be spent In Port
land, where the excursionists will be the
guests of the Portland Commercial Club.
Plans for the entertainment of the
junketers while here are now being ar
The special train will tie run by the
Harriman lines, the O. R. & N. and
Southern Pacilic, and will be known aa
the "Inland Empire Special." The ex
cursion will be limited to 130 people.
Tickets will be good for 90 days. The
southern terminus of the excursion will
be Los Angeles. Seven days will be spent
on the train and nearly all of the mem
bers of the party will come from Spokane
and vicinity, although one car will be
added from Walla Walla.
Mr. McMurray returned yesterday from
Spokane. While there he made an ad
dress before the Spokane Commercial
Ohio at noon last Tuesday and much en
thusiasm among the business men of that
section resulted from his talk. The trip
1s planned to bring about closer com
mercial relations between the whole Pa
cilic Coast. The "Inland Empire Special-;
will reach Portland at 10 A. M. on
the morning of February 8, and will leave
for the south the same night at 11:15
CLARKE IS MADE PRESIDENT
Succeeds Levey as Head of Astoria
& Columbia River Road.
Francis B. Clarke was elected to the
presidency of the Astoria & Columbia
River Railroad yesterday at a meeting
of directors of that company, held In
Portland. A. D. Charlton presided at
this meeting. C. M. Levey, formerly
head of the A. & C, tendered his resig
nation to the directors yesterday,
which was accepted. Mr. ciarke had
already been elected to the presidency
of the Portland Seattle Railway, Mr.
Levey having retired from that line
also, his new duties in the East claim
ing all his attention, so that he will
not have time to manage the affairs of
Hill lines In this territory any longer.
Mr. Clarke is a veteran railroader
who has been in the Hill service for a
long time. He has also been connected
with the Great Northern Steamship
Company. He will make his headquar
ters in Portland and will 'arrive here
soon. The A. & C. will later become
part of the Portland & Seattle system,
although now bearing a separate name.
Xorthem Pacific's New Book.
The latest Issue of the Northern Pa
cific's book, "Eastward Through the
Storied Northwest," has just appeared
and is more elaborate than ever. Its
cover is a striking design in yellow, with
California poppies forming a very at
tractive design. The book has 60 pages
and is remarkable for the large number
of excellent photographs of Pacific North
west views it contains. Portland is by
tio means neglected in this respect. There
are views of the city and the surround
ing country, while Mount Hood is shown
in prominent places. The text is inter
esting and describes a trip eastward from
California through the Northwest to St.
Paul. Olin I. Wheeler, the author of
Wonderland, the Northern Pacific's chief
advertising book, wrote the descriptive
matter in tbe new publication.
E. P. Rogers Critically 111.
E. P. Rogers, a veteran 'Southern Pa
cific official, lies very low at his rooms
at the Calumet Hotel and fears are en
tertained that he will ot recover. Mr.
Rogers was formerly assistant general
freight and passenger agent for the
Southern Pacific Oregon lines, with head
quarters here. Mr. Rogers was assistant
general freight and passenger agent here
under C. H. Markham. He was connected
with the company later In other positions
but retired from the service of the com
pany in 1903 on pension. He has since
lived in this city. '
Oregon Apples Are Commended.
Through the enterprise of William
McMurray, general passenger agent for
the Harriman lines in this territory, an
attractive display of Oregon apples
secured no little attention and consequent
favorable notice at the recent meeting of
the National Livestock Association at
Chicago. Mr. McMurray sent 30 boxes of
Southern Oregon's best fruit for the In
spection of the livestock men and the
many who saw them were much pleased
with their color and perfection. News
papers commented widely upon the ex
cellence of the apples.
Body Is Sent to St. Paul.
The body of the late Colonel William
Crooks, assistant to General Manager
O'Brien of the Harriman lines, was sent
from Portland last night by a special car
over the Northern Pacific to St. Paul,
where interment will be made. Colonel
Crooks' family resides there and it is
there that he spent the greater part of
his life. The funeral will be held next
Monday afternoon at St. Paul. Relatives
of the dead railroad man will accompany
his body East. . .
Issues Holiday Menu Card.
A special railroad menu card for Christ
mas has been issued by the O. R. & N.
for service during the holidays on the
dining cars of the O. R. & N. trains. The
card Is an attractive folder, with a holly
wreath and very complete menu.
Suffering Wife Tells
Court Her Woes
Beaten by Niggardly Husband for
Refnalnp: to Wear Threadbare
Cloak Bought in a Pawnshop,
Asks 'Warrant of Arrest.
'rET a Da,lbat or a thick hickory
VJ club and whale your husband
across the head with it when he comes
home to supper tonight, madame!"
That was the advice Municipal Clerk
Hennessy gave Mrs. Mary Jane Kelly,
of 84S Corbett street, yesterday after
noon. It was excellent advice, too, if
all the things Mrs. Kelly said about the
husband was true.
Mrs. Kelly wanted a new coat. It is
cold these days and her Summer wrap
is not sufficient. Her husband receives
a good salary and there was no reason
why, It should not be bought.
"I will get you the cdat today, Mary,"
Mrs. Kelly quotes her husband as having
said on Wednesday afternoon. She pro
tested that she wanted to pick the coat
out for herself but he claimed superior
taste and judgment in shopping and told
her to wait and see for herself what a
fine garment he would buy.
Yesterday at noon he carried home the
fruits of his shopping expedition. It was
a faded and impossible brown cloak that
gave every evidence of much previous
servitude. Persistent inquiry, on Mrs.
Kelly's part elicited the confession from
her husband that he had bought the cloak
at a pawnshop for a dollar clearing
Then the storm broke. Mrs. Kelly, a
thin little woman little more than 5 feet
high, told her bulky husband what she
thought of him and his thrift. She used
such plain and unmistakable termB as
damstinginess and cussedmeanness. His
response was a stinging blow In the face
with his clenched hand. The little wom
an's right eye went into mourning.
"What shall I do about it?" she cried,
after telling the story to Mr. Hennessy.
It was then he advised recourse to the
"But I'm not big enough for that," pro
tested Mrs. Kelly, taking the suggestions
quite seriously and revealing that her one
fear was her inability to carry out the
proposed plan for improvement of the
She was given a complaint charging
Kelly with assault and battery, refusing
to sign a complaint of wifebeating which
would make him amenable to the whipping-post
law.. She said she really didn't
want him to be sent to the whipping
post. "And it's ten to one she'll not show
up to prosecute even the battery charge,"
commented Mr. Hennessy. "Most of these
women are alike. Brutal husbands half
kill them, they hurry for a warrant and
then the husband says 'Molly forgive me
I'll not beat you again for a week' where
upon the wife refuses to appear." '

Speakers Declare for Harmony of
Action Among Republicans
at the Polls.
The Brooklyn Republican and Improve
ment Club voted to take an active part in
politics in the coming June and November
elections at Its regular meeting last night.
This conclusion was reached after ad
dresses by J. F. Kertchem, of Sellwood,
chairman of the Seventh Ward for the
Republican Central Committee and M. G.
Griffin, precinct chairman. Mr. Kertchem
outlined some of the plans proposed and
adopted to secure Republican success at
the June election by securing harmony of
action. To bring this about, Mr.
Kertchem, said that it Is the intention
to hold a mass meeting of delegates from
all the clubs and precincts of the county
and then discuss the situation with the
view to harmonious action now and In
Mr. Griffin spoke for Republican har
mony, declaring that the coming Presi
dential election will be the most . im
portant held in this country, as it will
settle the question whether the policies
of President Roosevelt shall prevail, or
whether the interests that he .has sought
to restrain shall triumph. Mr. Griffin ex
pressed the belief that but for President
Roosevelt the country would today be
under a dictator. Mr. Griffin spoke of
the last election, and scored so-called
Republicans who did not vote for the Re
publican nominee for Mayor. He said he
believed in organization and in a machine
in the hands of the people, such as the
present direct primary law made possible.
Further Mr. Griffin contended that there
has been altogether too much knifing In
the ranks of the Republican party, and
that when a worthy man has received the
nomination for any office at the primaries
it is the duty of the whole party to sup
port him at the polls.
At the conclusion of his talk Mr. Griffin
moved that the Brooklyn Republican and
Improvement Cluta take an active part in
the coming campaign, participate in
securing the nomination of worthy Re-.,
publicans at the primaries and work for
their election at the polls, which was
