"FOREIGN" CMS A"
TAX ON RAILWAYS
Per Diem Charge of 50 Cents
for Every One Belonging
to Other Roads.
MUCH IDLE ROLLING STOCK
rroljlcni Perplexing to Transporta
tion Men, Who 'Will Advocate
Reduction of Charge at Chi
cago Meeting This Week.
AVhat to do with foreign cars the
railways find on their lines at tills
time, when business is light and the
demand tor rolling stock is at a mini
mum is a problem that is worrying
traffic managers all over the country.
There is not enough business to 're
quire they use of the cars belonging to
other roads, or "foreign" cars as "they
are called, and for every day the for
eign cars are detained, the road hold
ing them on its tracks must pay a
charge of 50 cents. Formerly this
charge was 20 cents, but during the car
shortage of the past two years it was
Increased to' the present rate.
The thousands of foreign cars now
standing idle on the tracks of the
railroa'ds of the country are a very
large charge upon the railroads. These
idlt cars are not evenly distributed,
but are standing just where they were
left stranded when the high wave of
prosperity ebbed away.
W. C. Watrous, superintendent of
transportation 'for the Great Northern,
with offices at St. Paul, who has re
cently been In the city, said the rail
way managers will hold a meeting in
Chicago this week to talk over this
problem and seek out some solution of
it. Just what step will be taken he
did not know, but he agreed that it is
a serious condition of affairs that must
be relieved in some way.
Of course the roads having large
numbers of idle foreign cars on their
lines can deliver them to the home
tracks, but this is an expensive propo
sition. To h,aul an empty car from
St. Paul to Portland, a distance of
2010 miles, costs the railroads about
$73 for fuel ard operating expenses.
So it will be seen that to deliver all
these foreign cars would entail an
enormous charge upon the railways of
it has been suggested that the per
diem charge of 60 cents be reduced in
order to make the burden lighter upon
nil the roads, but just how much favor
this proposition will meet witli re
mains to be seen.
The proposition of delivering foreign
cars on their home tracks is one that
all roads of the country are interested
in at this time, and the meeting at Chi
cago will be attended generally by rep
resentatives of all the roads. As an
Instance of the number of foreign cars
standing idly on tracks, one system
had 6000 such cars when the slump in
business Ktf.rted a few months ago.
This number has been considerably re
duced since that time however.

FOR TRAFFIC AGREEMENTS
Congressmen Koarly to Adopt One
of ltooscvelt's Plans.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 3. There is a dis
position to single out among the subjects
discussed in the President's special mes
sage to Congress the recommendations as
to railway traffic associations as one on
which early legislation may bo attempted.
The leaders In Congress, t as well as the
President and influential' railroad men,
have long recognized the contradictory
character of the present laws. The Presi
dent has repeatedly called attention to
the fact that the Hepburn law and the
Cullom law, which it superseded, are
both based upon the theory that there
ought to be equal or at least equitably
adjusted rates on the different routes
serving the same or competitive commu
nities, hut that in spite of the general
recognition of this truth, the interstate
commerce law and the Sherman anti
trust law ats construed by the Supreme
Court have made unlawful the only sim
ple and efficacious method of bringing
about such adjustments.
The interstate Commerce Commission
as early as 1S94 was strongly in favor of
the enactment of a law which would have
permitted tariff agreements while giving
the commission limited supervision over
their operation. The present opinion of
tho commission is Identical with that ex
pressed in 1900 in its 14th annual report.

SUDDEN DEATH OF
Colonel Benjamin F. Shaw Had
Prominent Part in North
. v west History.
LEADER AGAINST INDIANS
Sole Survivor of the Yakima War,
Above Rank of Captain, Passes
Away In City of Portland,
Aged 7 9 Years.'
Colonel Benjamin F. Shaw, the last sur
vivor of the volunteer force in the Yakima
Indian War of 1855-'5t, above the rank
of Captain, died suddenly yesterday morn
ing at 8 o'clock at the family home. 1003
Rodney avenue, as a result of a hem
orrhage of the lungs. His ancestors were
of Scotch, Irish, English and Norman
blood, and were among the foundation
builders of the American Republic. One
of his grandfathers, James Shaw, was a
soldier of the Revolution; his father, Wil
liam Shaw; served -under General Jackson'
In the War of 1812, and also ifi the Cayuse
Indian War in Oregon in 1848; while an
uncle, Cornelius Gilliam, was a Captain
in the Black Hawk and Seminole Indian
wars, and chief in command in the Cayuse
War up to the time of his death.
Colonel Shaw was born in Missouri May
8, 1829, and crossed the plains with, his
parents in 1844, andi first settled on Howell
prairie. Marion County. In 1845 he went
to Puget Sound, and in company with
Colonel Michael T. Simmons and George
Bush, also pioneers of 1844, built a saw
mill, at Tumwater New Market, it was
then called and two years later assisted
in building a gristmill at- the same place,
these being the first mills built by Ameri
can settlers north of the Columbia River.
- First Ship -From Sound.
In the Winter of 1849-'50. Colonel Shaw
was one of a company of five persons, the
other four being Colonel Isaac N. Ebey,
Edmund Sylvester, the founder of Olym
pia, George Moore, and Colonel M. T.
Simmons, to buy the brig Orbit in San
Francisco, sail the vessel to Puget Sound
and. load her with piles, it was the first
American vessel to take a cargo out of
Upon tha arrival of Governor Isaac I.
Stevens, early in 1854, Colonel Shaw was
selected by him for special d-uty in the
Indian service, a duty for which he was
well fitted, owing to his sound judgment
and excellent knowledge of the Indian
dialects as well as the Chinook jargon.
On this account he accompanied the Gov
ernor and Colonel Simmons, Indian Agent,
throughout Western Washington, visit
ing every tribe and making treaties, act
ing n the capacity of interpreter. It is
believed that if the Government hart kept
faith with the Indians in the spirit of
the treaties thus entered into, largely
through the influence of Colonel Shaw,
whose knowledge of Indian character was
second to that of no other man. it is not
likely that the subsequent Indian wars
would have followed. Being a man of
the strictest integrity himself, his theory
was that Indians should be dealt -with
justly, a principle which he -sought to
carry out to the fullest extent in his
Promoted in Service.
. At the beginning of the Indian outbreak
in the Klickitat country in October, 1S55,
Colonel Shaw was still in the Indian
service, but early in 1856 was commis
sioned Lieutenant-Colonel by Governor
Stevens, and placed in command if a
battalion. After several ' months' active
service in the Puget Sound distract, he
was ordered by Governor Stevens to lead
an expedition against a combination of
tribes in Eastern Washington and Ore
gon. In obedience to this order, with
nearly 200 mounted men, and adequate
supply trains, he left Camp Montgomery,
only a few miles from Tacoma of the
present day, on June 12, 1ST.6. and went
through the almost impassable Natchess
Pass to the Walla Walla Valley. After
much scouting and a number of skirm
Islies Colonel Shaw decided to go to the
Grande Ronde, and he arrived in the
vlciriity of the present city of La Grande
on the morning of July 17. The account
of that expedition is best given in the
words of Governor Stevens: N
Lieutenant-Colonel Shaw, learning: that
the hostiles were In the Grand Ronde, de
termined to march against them, and mov
ing in the night by an unused trail, he' fell
upon the main body the third day. and
struck the hardest and most brilliant blow
of the war. The enemy were pursued some
l.T mties. nearly alt their provisions and
ammunition were captured, over 200 horses
fell into his. hands, and the loss of the
enemy could not' have been less than from
40 to 0O killed and mortally wounded.
Battle Ended the War.
This action was the last of any con
sequence in the Yakima War. although
the volunteers were not mustered out of
service until late in the Fill. For a num
ber of years thereafter, Colonel Shaw
lived in Marion County, but about 1870
removed to Clark County, Washington,
where he followed farming and stockrais
ing until about three years ago, when lie
sold out and bought the present family
home in this city.
In 1871 Colonel Shaw was married to
Mrs. Cynthia Switzler Nye, by whom he
had two sons. Benjamin F., now living in
Spokane, and J. . W., whose home is in
Portland. A number of years after his
first wife's death he was married a-second
time to Miss Agnes Baker, in May,- 1S!W.
by whom he has had one son, Frank
Shaw, of Portland. i
Colonel Shaw served in the Upper House
of the Washington Territorial legislature,
and during the administration of Presi
dent Cleveland he was Register of the
Land Office at Vancouver. The funeral
arrangements have not yet been made.

LOOKS LIKE MILLER
Leads Republicans for Mayor
COUNT SLOW IN SEATTLE
Virst Test of Direct Primary Sjltows
Politicians Witlrout Organization
Can Do Little Small Activity
Among the Democrats.
SEATTLE, Feb. 4. At- 1 o'clock this
morning returns show that John F. Mil
ler leads in tho primary election for the
Republican nomination for Mayor, with
William P. Trimble sond and George F.
Russel third. Returns are incomplete at
this hour, but there are. Indications that
tlie Democrats and Seattle City party men
split up the vote among the Republican
candidates. General James B. Metcalfe
is nominated for Mayor by th Democrats
and Mayor William Hickman Moore, with
out opposition, -is nominated by ttie Se
attle City party.
SEATTLE. Wash.7Feb. 3. (Special.)
With less than 'half of , the precincts
completely tallied, it looks as if John F.
Millfr, Deputy Prosecuting Atrney, will
be the Republican nominee for Mayor at
the general election to be held March 3.
It is Seattle's first trial of. the direct pri
mary law and the result has proved that
politicians, without a better organization
than maintains here, have little chanc.
John V. Miller, Who Leads In I'rt
. mary Returns for Republican May
oralty Nomination in Seattle.
George RusselU who was the politicians',
choice, is swaying between second and
third choice, W. P. Trimble, the so-called
business men's candidate, being his rival
for second honor.
The feature of the electifui has been tne
heavy Republican- vote cast and the cor
responding light vote cast by the Seattle
City party, at the head of which is the
present Mayor. W. 11. Moore. There has
also been little activity among Demo
crats, but General J. B. Metcalf will Un
doubtedly be elected. ' , '
The heavy Republican vote cast caused
worry among the managers of Miller and
of Trimble, for it was feared that Mayor
Moore was sending hfs following to vote
for a weak candidate on the Republican
ticket so that he might have an easy
time at the general election. This, how
ever, is dispelled by the fact that the
strongest men on the ticket have received
the largest vote.
Fifty-four complete precincts give
Miller -3001.' Trimble 2177 and Russell 2039.
The fight for tho Treasurer nbmination
is close, the same number of precincts
giving Reber 3346 and Prosser 3347. Scott

will be nominated by a big majority.
The primaries were handled ; quietly,
only one disturbance of any magnitude
