18 ' THE MORNING OREGONIAN, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1907. TERMN CAN L FIGHT- "T-BE SETTLED 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 terminal. 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 question. "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 this right." 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 . ranged. 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 o'clock. 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 house .certificate. 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 ballbat. "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 husband's conduct. 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." ' ART SPECIALTIES.

Many of them are working and cargoes are being rushed to completion. Wheat receipts are steadily increasing. The great draw back at present Is the lack of mooring buoys and facilities for discharging. Captain Speier, Harbormaster, granted permission to the Glenalvan andlhe Lar go Bay to discharge on lighters. This will greatly facilitate the dispatch of the grain fleet. Xo Word From Missing Castor. No word has been received from the missing bark Castor which arrived off the mouth of the Columbia River 34 days ago.

She has been reported three times by the Government lookout. The advis ability of requesting .the Government to send a revenue cutter to her aid is be ing discussed. Montara Coming to Portland.

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 the future. 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 carried. Politics disposed of, the club received reports concerning electric lights and street improvements. C. Molstad and W. T. Flekes were appointed to see the Mayor and electric light committee of the Executive Committee about the moving of lights on Cay wood street. 1... S. Dane, appointed to prepare plans for the club hall, submitted the plans for the building. It will be 95x48.

STORM BREWS OFF COAST Weather Bureau Issues Warnings to Mariners Snow Falls Again. A regular rip-enorter of a storm is due off the Coast, according to bulletins posted yesterday by the Weather Bureau. Warnings to marthers were displayed at all seaports. The storm promises to be of greater extent than that of recent date, when 96 miles an hour was recorded in wind velocity at sea, but in intensity It may not so violent. The storm was due last night with prospects of de veloping Into full firry today. There was a suggestion of snow In the city at an early hour yesterday morning but nothing in the way of a real snow storm materialized.
