Preliminary Meeting Is Held in
Portland and Officers
J, LINDSTROM PRESIDENT
Another Meeting Will Be Called
Within SO Days to Effect Perma
nent ( Association Plans an
Equal Wage Schedule.
Representatives of a number of Pacific
Coast shipbuilding yards met yesterday
and effected a preliminary organization
of shipbuilders. John Lindstrom, of Aber
deen and Eureka, was chosen president of
the temporary organization and George
Matthews, of Hoquiam, was made secre
tary. ThoseN in attendance were: John
Lindstrom, of Aberdeen and Eureka;
tieorge Matthews, of Hoquiam; George E.
Billings, representing the Hall Shipbuild
ings Company, of San Francisco; John H.
Hubbard, of the same firm with head
quarters at Wlnslow; and Theodore Knud
son. Joseph Supple and C. Nelson, of
Portland. Optin Price, of Coquille. was
present by proxy and other builders ex
pressed their sympathy with the move
ment by letter.
The object of the meeting was to effect
an organization "of the shipbuilders for
the purpose of agreeing on a wage sched
ule and the manner of conducting the sev
eral yards without interference of work
men. The different shipyards along the
coast have been operating under difficul
ties for a long time. The handling of
labor lias been a serious obstacle to the
construction of and the finishing vessels
at all coast ports. It was with a view
of correcting this evil that the meeting
was called yesterday.
While the meeting of yesterday was only
one of temporary organization, the effect
will be far reaching. The president was
granted authority to call another meeting
at any time within 60 days and at any
place agreed upon between himself and
the secretary. All representatives pres
ent ajrreed to attend the meeting and ef
fec. a fermanent organization. This
rorenii-a," probably will be held about the
!-Kid!a of March and the place will be
Portland. This city is the most central
. end the easiest of access.
T.-.i action of the shipbuilders is a nat-i.-al
r"sult of the recent actions of the
sailing ship owners and the owners of
steam schooners. The latter are now
having trouble with the marine engineers
In San Francisco. A schedule of wages
lias been prepared by the owners, who
also have fixed the number of licensed
men to be carried. "Vessels are tied up
where crews reject the scale. In Oak
land creek there are now upwards of 60
steamers and a like number of sailing
craft without crews, and all Idle.

ing touches are being put on the craft
and application has been made for inspec
tion to the local board.
The Mascot was dismantled last Sum

weeks ago while disposing of stolen

charged and sentenced to five years In
Another chapter in the war on boxcar
"rattlers" by the Harriman lines In this
state was written yesterday when Frank
Ward, a persistent offender, was sen
tenced to five years in the penitentiary
for pilfering from O. R. & N. freight
cars at The Dalles. This conviction is
the result of the crusade being carried
on against freight car robbers by the O.
R. & N. and Southern Pacific lines In
Oregon and will go far toward putting a
stop to the practice, for Ward was
known as one of the most annoying of
fenders. Ward was arrested in Portland a short
time ago for offenses of the same char
acter, the specific complaint being that
he stole three saddles from an O. R. &
N. train, throwing them into the brush
beside the track in the vicinity of Bonne
ville. He was brought to trial, but al
though the officers were morally certain
he was guilty, evidence was lacking to
convict, and he was discharged during
the latter part of January.
Immediately upon his acquittal Ward
started East over the O. R. & N. A
watch was set on him, for it was be
lieved that he would resume his old
practice of pilfering from boxcars, and
the officers had not long to wait.
At The Dalles Ward fell In with his
old gang of boxcar bandits and he was
Buspected of having participated In two
or three robberies of freight trains,, but
theru was no conclusive proof against
him. On. January 29, however. Detective
Wood, of the O. R. & N caught him at
A. M. with a quantity of shoes in his
possession that had been taken from an
O. R. & N. boxcar at The Dalles. At
the time of his arrest Ward was dining
on canned corn beef that he had stolen
from freight' cars.
The)- evidence against Ward was com
plete. It was shown during the trial
that he had stolen the shoes from a
quantity stored in one of the boxcars
standing on a siding at The Dalles. Al
though he entered a plea of not guilty,
he could not explain his having the shoes
In his possession.
On February 12 Ward decided to change
his plefi! to guilty and throw himself on
the mercy of the court. His five-year
sentence was imposed by the court yes
terday. A relentless campaign against boxcar
thieves, or "rattlers." is being conducted
by the Harriman officials and a special
agent has been stationed on each division
to watch the property of shippers while
In transit and cause the arrest of tramps
who make a practice of breaking open
freight cars and stealing such portions
of the contents as can be disposed of to
advantage by the pilferers. Tramps are

TOURIST RATES XOT SETTLED
Transcontinental Passenger Asso
ciation Unable to Take Action.
John M. Scott, assistant general passen
ger agent for the Harriman lines in this
territory, returned yesterday from Coro
nado, Cal.. where he attended the meet
ing of the Transcontinental Passenger As
sociation. He said the railroads hold-
ing membership In the organization were
generally represented at the meeting, but
that the matter of Summer tourist rates,
which was one of the chief things of im
portance to come up, could not be defi
nitely settled. This Is due to the fact
that the lines in many of the Eastern
and some Western states, chiefly thoseH
having 2-cent fare laws, have not agreed
upon putting the usual Summer tourist
rates into effect. Because of this, the
association could not act finally on the
' "A special committee was appointed,"
said Mr. Scott, that will meet in Chi
cago and will act on this matter. The
association could do nothing' as yet, owing
to the lack of uniform action by the rail
roads, but I expect this matter will be
settled within the next few weeks.
"The matter of all convention rates has
been placed in the hands of the same
committee for the same reason."
The railroad men took a side trip into
Mexico while away as the guests of the

INDORSES STEP TAKEN
BOARD OF TRADE.
Believes Attempt to Introduce
Strictly Commercial Functions
The efforts of the Board of Trade to
Introduce strictly commercial functions is
meeting with very gratifying success, ac
cording to the officials of the organiza
tions. Among the letters received yes
terday by Secretary Miller Indorsing the
new plans is the following communication
under date of February 8, frormJames J.
Hill, president of the Great Northern:
I am glad to learn that the commercial
interests of Portland, through its Board of
Trade, arc taking an active Interest In the
business- of the country. It ia through such
organizations and through their efforts in
the direction of accurate .information that
their supporting business will be kest on
right lines. The country at larse Is Just
emerging from a panic which occurred at a
time when no serious menace threatened
any branch of the seneral commerce of
the country. Eighteen months or two
years aeo the country was on a basis of
tremendous business expansion and Inflated
values. These values were greatly reduced
without any serious difficulty until about
May 1 last. Speculative prices were al
most driven from the general market. Fi
nancial conditions in other countries were
halting and in doubt while our own coun
try had. on the whole, a greater production
of material wealth than ever before.
Just at this time a period of distrust and
fear arose which ended in hoarding money
and reducing the volume of all kinds of
trade. We will now have both time aid
opportunity to regain- confidence and pick
up the threads of trade and in time to re
store commerce to normal conditions.
Whether this will take a Ion or short
time depends upon how the work Is taken
up. but we may rely as a fact that a re
turn of prosperity will come more quickly
and with greater certainty where the foun
dations are laid on correct knowledge of
the conditions which always govern com
mercial relations. 1
Thanking you for your letter. I assure
you that I am always ready to do anything
that will aid the situation.

We are as sheep without a shepherd. Hire

almost at our wits' end because we knew they
were hirelings. But what are we to do? Can't
you give as a real shepherd, one worthy of
being followed? Surely It Is possible to find
one In the great Republican party in the whole
State of Oregon.
You have scolded ua much of late, and per
haps we hava deserved It. We have exhibited
a good deal of sheep-like headetrongnees In
going after Democratic shepherds In the per
sons of Governor, Mayor, Sheriff, etc. But
"there's a reason." It has not entirely been
because we are bad Republicans or not Re
publicans at all, but because we could not
quite stomach all the candidates placed before
us on the Republican ticket in not a few caaes.
This may not account for all our waywardness,
but it does for some.
The one thing which tha Republican party
in Oregon needs today above all others Is tha
unifying Influence of true leadership. Given
such leadership, determined on following out
the higher ideals which are surely taking root
here as well as throughout the Nation at large.
I cannqt but believe that tha heart of the
great mass of Republican voters will respond
loyally in full appreciation of the worth of
such leadership. Until then we can hope for
little else save drifting and grasping at straws.

know that many men suffer FOR YEARS and
practically RUIN THEIR HEALTH FOREVER

evident that many men will run to what they '
call "cheap" treatment. NO TREATMENT AT
ALL is what "cheap" treatment means in nine
cases out of ten. The lat state of the man Is
worse than the first. Don't delay another day.
