HANDLE ALL SHIPS
Part Cargo Craft From Sound
and Other Ports Will
CONTRACT FOR TWO YEARS
Stevedores and Employes Come to
Agreement Regarding Loading
and Discharging Vessels Men
on Purely Local Footing.
After negotiations lasting for weeks,
the Chamber of Commerce, acting ts
mediator between unions of longshore
men working vesseLs calling at this
port, and the stevedore companies, has
succeeded In arranging a contract
whereby the longshoremen agree to
abide by the existing wags scale for
the coming two years.
The two stevedore firms doing busi
ness here. Brown & McCabe and The
McCabe Company, Inc., ha'e been de
clared fair by the Stevedores' Union,
which agrees for a term of two years
to handle all vessels In this port loaded
by either of these two firms. Irrespec
tive of whether labor difficulties have
occurred or may occur in other ports,
including Puget Sound.
An Important feature of this settle
ment Is that it means the American
. Hawaiian line and the Kosmos line will
tesume service from this port at once.
The steamers Nebraskan and Alaskan
will be put back in service from Port
land. the Hrst calling here September
21. Regular sailing dates will be ar
ranged thereafter for the steamship
companies give assurances that, as the
adjustment made does away with the
possibility of labor troubles on the
waterfront for tjie coming tm'O years,
they are perfectly willing to maintain
service from this port. '
The action of the union place the
longshoremen In this city on a purely
local footing, and they have agreed to
make no discrimination against vessels
bound to Puget Sound ports with part
cargoes or coming from the Sound with
part cargoes. In other words, they
agree not to take on their shoulders
the troubles of the longshoremen's
unions in other places.
Adjustment Is Satisfactory.
The adjustment of the difficulties
that might arise here because of the
troubles of the longshoremen on Puget
Sound are entirely satisfactory, not
only to the Chamber of Commerce, but
to shipowners, stevedore companies and
the union alike. The steamship com
panies made it plain that If ships part
ly loaded at Seattle would not be fin
ished here because non-union long
shoremen handled the cargoes at the
Puget Sound ports, they would not call
here at all.
Action to prevent these two steam
ship lines slighting this port on ac
count of the threatened labor troubles
was Imperative, and the trustees of tho
Chamber of Commerce took the matter
in hand energetically. A number of
conferences were held between the
trustees and the following commlttea
representing the longshoremen: . John
Maher. P. Sullivan, C. T. Fouch and J.
The longshoremen, it waa found,
were eminently fair, and had the inter
ests of the port at heart in considering
the proposition. They agreed to accept
the present wage-scale for two years
longer. This scale is: 55 cents an
hour for all work except lumber, which
Is 50 cents an hour. Overtime. $1 an
hour, except lumber, which Is 75 cants
an hour. Handling quarter sacks of
flour, 60 cent an hour, overtime $U
The matter was finally settled at a
special meeting of the Chamber of
Commerce trustees yesterday. Letters
were addressed to the various steam
ship companies by Secretary Edmond
C. Giltner, telling them of the favor
able outcome of the negotiations. This
letter concludes as follows:
Recommend Union Employes.
"The trustees of the Chamber of
Commerce feel gratified at the result
and recommend that if you contract
with stevedores, you contract with
either of the two firms above men
tioned, inserting In the contract that
the firms employ members of the local
Portland unions; and If you decide to
do your own stevedoring, that you em
ploy members of the union.
"We feel sure that Industrial peace
will prevail along the waterfront here
for the period of the contract men
tioned." Secretaiy Giltner Is satisfied that
the settlement Just made will be of
great benefit to Portland's chipping in
terests. He said:
"This adjustment Just effected means
a great deal more to the port than ap
pears on the surface, for when the
lines promised are established. Port
land will get much more trade than
would otherwise be the case. Regular
steamer service mean much to any
port, and In this way Portland will get
in touch with new trade territory that
contributes but little, if anything, at
present to Portland's prosperity.
"In fact, we have assurances from
Hawaiian merchants that they will be
pleased to buy here when regular sail
ing dates are established. They are
satisfied that they can purchase a num
ber of things here to the best advan
tage, and are anxious to profit by this
market as soon as It is made accessible
The Chamber of Commerce has Inter
ested itself In securing these steamer
line, and when It learned of the re
moval of doubt as to what local long
shoremen's unions would do, it set
about to adjust matters. The trustees
worked carefully on the question, and
the outcome Is due to their persever
ance and determination to act for the
best interests of Portland.

SAX FRANCISCO. Sept. 8. Anxiety in
regard to the British ship Aeon, which
sailed from this port on July 6 for Samoa
and Australia, and has not since been re

A short time ago Mr. Short, antici
pating that he had but a short time to
live, dictated to his son an account of
his life. The first part of the sketch
deals with his career, before , he
started across the plains with
Joseph C. Geer. He came to Oregon in
the company commanded by General
Joel Palmer, Following is the account
that pertains to his life in Oregon:
On February 17, 1847, I started overland
once more across Indiana for a farewell visit
to my father In Ohio and my boyhood horns
In Pennsylvania. April 3. 184T, I took pass
axe on the steamer Planet for Cincinnati.
From Cincinnati 1 went by boat to St.
Joseph, where I met Joseph C. Geer, for
whom I had agreed to drive an ox-team
across the plains that Summer. May 7, 184T,
we crossed the Missouri River and then
made up our Immigrant train. General Joel
Palmer being chosen captain. On November
7. 1847. I arrived at Oregon City, being jts!

Rapids. I went on board a sailing vessel
at the mouth of the Willamette River and
landed In San Francisco March 14. Thence
I went by rowboat to Sacramento City, which
then had but one wooden building In It.
March 29. 1848. I paid $300 for an Indian
pony and started for the gold fleldo, reaching
Spanish Bar April 14. and mined there until
July 8 and then left for home. I remained
In San Francisco eight days and helped to
organize the flrt vigilance committee on the
Pacific Coast, old Captain Priest being elected
Returning to Oregon. I arrived at Astoria
August 7 on the brig Mary Ellen. In July,
1850. I surveyed the town of Portland and
made the first plat that was put on record
and from which two copies were made by
Brady of San Francisco, being known as
the Brady map. I bought a lot 60x100 on
the southwest corner of Third and Washing
ton streets, where the Dekum building now
stand, and built a one-story frame house
with brick chimney, and then moved to Ore
gon City. I bought an Interest in the Hrst

WILD WEST SHOW FEATURE
Ray Thompson Exhibits Trained
Western Range Horses,
When Buffalo Bill's Wild West comes
to town U.ere will be displayed as a
part of that remarkable exhibition a
troupe of Western range horses, trained
to tho perfection of the thoroughbred
of the circus ring. To demonstrate how
difficult it must have been to subdue
these descendants of the wild horse of
the plains, there will be a large com

It will be readily shown how diffi
cult It Is to make the Western horse
submit even to the curb and saddle of
the cowboy, let alone the mastery of a
trainer who makes them perform easily
and gracefully and without the slight
est punishment or urging, the most dif
ficult trick known to the horsetralner s
art. Ray Thompson is the owner and
trainer of the Buffalo Bill horses, and
the star of the aggregation is Joe
Bailey, admittedly the handsomest and
best trained animal on exhibition be
fore the public.
Thompson has spent years In training
his horses, and In the group, besides
Joe Bailey, are a number of beautiful
equities who perform . singly and In
groups the same graceful "stunts" as
the thoroughbreds of the circus arena.
All the different "gaits" known to
horsemen are demonstrated by the
Thompson group, and they dance and
cavort around the arena In a manner
which shows that they enjoy their work
and likewise appreciate the applause
which is invariably bestowed upon

onlv a part of the great historical ex

There are equlnos from every clime,

the various styles of saddle work
known throughout the world. Cossacks
frohi Russia, fearless Arabians upon
their native steeds, American Indians
on their spotted ponies, and our own
cowboys on their fractious and bucking
There will be Indian battles, war
dances and pow-wows; exhibitions of
native history and historic types, and
many stirring scenes and incidents to
arouse enthusiasm and send the blood
tingling from excitement. The great
train hold-up; showing the dangers of
old-time railroading; the pony express
and overland stagecoach, showing the
primitive methods of travel; the Battle
of Summit Springs, showing the meth
olds of barbaric warfare and other
scenes accurate and Instructive will go
to form a programme of uncommon In

of horsemen, personally directing every
performance and appearing at every
exhibition given by the Wild West,
Buffalo Bill, the original and only, will
appear on horseback and participate In
the principal scenes.
GATHER FOR CONVENTION
PASSENGER AGENTS BEGIN TO
ARRIVE FROM EAST.
Will Meet in Seattle September 14,
and Later Will Spend Two
Days in Portland.
Traveling passenger agents and other
officials of the railroads holding member
ship In the American Association of Trav
eling Passenger Agents are gathering for
the annual convention which will open at
Seattle September 14. and will continue
until September 16. The two following
days will be spent in Portland, where
the ticket sellers will be entertained by
Portland commercial organizations.
The attendance at the coming conven
tion promises to be the largest In the his
tory of the organization. . There Is wide
spread interest in the gathering because
of the section of the United States
to be visited and the approach of the
Alaska-Yukon-Paciflc exposition. Vlsita
will be made to the fair grounds as well
as other interesting spots about Seattle.
Malone Joyce, traveling passenger agent
for the Colorado Midland, in the Los
Angeles territory, is In the city and will
go from here to Seattle with the party of
Portland passenger agents. A. P. Stewart,
district freight and passenger agent at
San Francisco, for the Chicago & Alton,
has also arrived here and will go North
with the Portland party. A special car
leaves the city next Saturday night for
Seattle carrying the members who will
attend from this territory.
Special cars rather than special trains
will be the rule this year in reaching the
convention. Special trains are expensive
of operation and the agents thought best
not to ask for them this season be
cause of the falling oft in the net earn
ings of the various lines on account
of the financial stringency prevail
ing during the past few months. Three
special care left Chicago last Monday but
will stop en route to visit Yellowstone
Park. A. M. Cleland, general passenger
agent for the Northern Pacific, is also
bringing three special car parties from
St. Paul, and those on board will also
stop at Yellowstone Park.
Special entertainment has been provided
for the visiting passenger agents in the
Puget Sound city. They will be well en
tertained while they are not attending the
business sessions of the association. Trips
about Seattle, a ball, a banquet and a day
spent on Puget Sound on the steamer
President are promised and the passenger
men are looking forward to the meeting
with a great deal of pleasure.
Portland has a special Interest In the
coming session because of the fact that a
Portland man, M. J. Roche, is president
of the association, and on that account
the traffic men will visit Portland upon
their return from Seattle, spending two
days here. The visitors will be given
automobile and trolley rides about the
city, a reception and luncheon at the
Commercial Club, and the second day will
be spent by a trip to Cascade Locks on
the steamer Bailey Gatzert.
Preparing for State Fair.
Passenger equipment is being assembled
by the Southern Pacific to take care of
the heavy travel that is expected tcythe
State Fair at Salem from Portland and
other points in the Willamette Valley.
General Passenger Agent William Mc
Murray anticipates a very large attend
ance at the fair and is making plans to
handle the crowds accordingly. Portland
day has been' fixed for September 17 and.
on that day an especially heavy move
ment Is anticipated. A number of special
trains will be run from Portland to carry
those attending from this city. Inquiries
as to accommodations offered by the rail
road company are coming in in large
numbers. Indicating a general Interest In
the coming event.
New Book on Crater Lake.
A new book has been issued by the
Southern Pacific Company describing the
attractions of Crater Lake. "There Is
but one Crater Lake." Is the slogan of the
booklet and a number of interesting pic
tures of the famous resort illustrate the
text. Routes of travel used In reaching
the shores of the lake, the various points
of Interest on the Journey and other de
tails that every traveler contemplating
making the trip will want to know are
included in the booklet, which is now
ready for distribution.

FOR GRAND JURY
First Body Under New Lawj
Soon Will Investigate
A. E. DAVIS NAMED FOREMAN
Judge Gantenbeln Reads Oregon
Law Regarding Prize-Fightlng
and Liquor License and Di
rects Attention to Offices.
The first grand jury under the new
law, enacted by the voters last June,
was drawn In the Circuit Court yester
day morning. County Clerk Fields was
present, and drew the names from the
41 in the box. The other 59 of the 100
talesmen for whom subpenas were
issued were either not found by the
Sheriffs deputies or were excused by
Presiding Judge Gantenbeln. The third
name drawn was that of W. A. Claw
son, but as he did not respond, five
others were drawn, instead of four.
Judge Gantenbein appointed A. E.
Davis, president of the Hygienic Mat
tress Company, foreman of the grand
Jury. Mr. Davis is a member of the
Municipal League, and is interested in
reforms in the city.
A. W. Bagley was appointed to at
tend to the duties of clerk, in addition
to serving as one of the talesmen. He
is a real estate dealer. The other mem
bers of the grand Jury are: H. E.
Blossom, traveling man; A. B. Ccmrad,
farmer; J. H. Day and J. F Jaeger,
Of the 100 talesmen whose names
were listed, only 34 remained after, the
grand Jurymen had been drawn, and
those who had good cause were ex
cused. Of the latter there were 12.
Instructions to Jury.
In his instructions to the jury,, Judge
Gantenbein read the sections of the
Oregon law relating to forest and
brush fires, libel, prizefighting, liquor
licenses and local option. He remarked
that these sections, however, are not
to be held of more Importance than
other laws, but that the whole law is
to be enforced alike, and all violators
are to be punished.
The Court Instructed the Jury that it
is "incumbent upon you to inquire into
the condition and management of every
public prison In the county, and into
the condition and management of the
offices pertaining -to the courts of Jus
tice in the county; and you shall have
free access at ajl reasonable times to
the prisons and offices mentioned, and
also without charge to all public books
and records of the county."
County Jail Inquiry.
This portion of the Instructions calls
upon the Jurors to Investigate the
manner In which Kelly Butte and
the County Jail are being conducted.
In this connection it Is probable that
the differences of the Sheriff and the
County Court regarding the -working
of prisoners will also be investigated.
The grand Jury had issued four sub
penas for witnesses when it adjourned
yesterday noon. It remained in session
until after 5 o'clock last night with
out returning any indictments. Five
more witnesses will be examined this
morning if the time permits. As the
members are pushing their investiga
tion of cases as rapidly as possible, it
is believed that returns will be made
n a large number in a short time.
It is believed that the Adolph Adler
case was one of those In which an in
vestigation was begun yesterday.

however, that a thirty-acre tract on Pow

favor any location that might be selected,
a park being the thing wanted.
