APPEAL TO STATE
FOR MORE FUNDS
Oregon Commission to Seattle
Fair Will Ask for $50,000
$100,000 IS NEARLY GONE
Money la fcld to Be Needed for
Exhibit, ma Bulk of Original
Appropriation AVM Ex
pended on Building.
An additional appropriation of 130.000
trill b asked of the Legislature, this
Winter by the Oregon Commission to tbe
Aiaska-Yukon-Paclflo Exposition at Seat
tle In 1809. "While the original appropiia
tlon of tlCO.OOO. provided by the 1W7 Lett-
Watlve session Is not entirely exhausted.
the additional sum. It Is said, will be
needed to Insure the success of the Ore
son exhibit at the Seattle Exposition.
W. H. TVehning and M. D. Wisdom,
president and secretary of the Com
mission, respectively, were out of the city
yesterday and could not be Interviewed
on the subject. Before leaving- for his
home at Hillsboro Saturday, however,
Mr. Wehrung announced that the Com
mission would feel obliged to ask for
more funds at the hands of the Legis-
lature. E. W. Base, one of the other
members of the Commission, said he had
not been advised that more funds would
be required, although he admitted that
the available money in the hands of the
Commission wss insufficient to carry out
its plans as to a creditable display of
The bulk of the original appropriation
Is said to have been expended in building
the Oregon building, one of the 'most at
tractive structures that hss been erected
by an outside state. The unexpended bal
ance, It is reported, will not prove ade
quate to meet the expense of collecting
the exhibit and installing it in the build
ing. Other funds will be needed to com
plete these details and at the same time
make provision for entertaining functions
usually conducted in connection with such
exhibits. Mr. Rowe was not able yester
day to say how much of the original ap
propriation remained unexpended.
Just, how smooth sailing such a bill
will have in the Legislature la a disputed
question. By some It is contended the
state has made abundant provision for
a proper representation at the Seattle
fair, while others think that, having un
dertaken an exhibit, the matter of an
additional appropriation, if within rea
sonable bounds, should not be permitted
to embarass the Commission in making
a flattering showing. At the same time
there promises to be made increased de
mands on the State Treasury from all
sides at the approaching session of the
In addition to the usual number of
standing appropriations, of which In
creased allowances will be asked in a
great many Instances, the lawmakers will
be requested to appropriate money for
institutions that heretofore have been
maintained without state aid. For in
stance, the State Hortlculural Society
has appointed a committee with Instruc
tions to present to the Legislature the
importance of the state's horticultural
" interests and to ask a standing appro
priation of not less than 11000 per annum.
The dairy interests likewise will ask for
more asstetanoe from tbe state. This In
dustry has assumed such proportions that
the services of not less than three addi
tional dairy and cheese Inspectors will be
urged, together with a sufficient appro
priation to enable a better and more
thorough regulation of the business. In
numerable other demands for state
funds will be made of the Legislators,
among whom a disposition to apply the
pruning knife wherever possible already
has been manifested.
STATEMENT MEMBERS TO MEET
Will Hold Session Before Legisla
ture, Says B. F. Jones.
B F. Jones, Representative-elect from
Polk and Lincoln Counties, tentative
Statement candidate for Speaker and
Mayor-elect of Independence, was regis
tered at the Imperial yesterday. Mr.
Jones wss not dtaposed to discuss poll
tics, although he said the Statement mem
bers of the House expect to hold a meet
ing early next month and before the Leg
islature assembles, when It probably
would be determined whether or not they
should join in a caucus for purposes of
, organisation or attempt to organize on a
"The only matter of legislation in which
I expect personally to be interested." said
Mr. Jones yesterday, "Is that of the pur
chase by the Government of the Oregon
t'tty Locks. At the last session of the
legislature I secured the passage of a
bill appropriating f.JOO.000 by the state as
a part of the purchase price of this prop
erty. This appropriation was to be avail
able for the purpose for which it was pro
vided only in esse the Government within
three years appropriated the additional
funds that might be necessary to acquire
"The life of this appropriation by the
Oregon Legislature expires next Winter,
or one year before the 1911 session of the
Legislature can be convened. Unless the
Government succeeds in acquiring the
property before the session of the Legis
lature which meets next month adjourns.
I expect to ask that the time in which
this appropriation by the state shall be
available be extended for a year or more.
"Senator Fulton, however, is making
vigorous efforts to get Immediate action
by Congress on the proposal that the
Government purchase and operate the
locks, and I have hopes that he will suc
ceed before the approaching session of the
Legislature adjourns. In that event. It
will not be necessary to ask for any ex
tension in the time that the state's appro
priation can be used."
Discussing municipal affairs, Mr. Jom-s
said the people of Independence contem
plated installing a sewer system and a
gravity water service. Other municipal
Improvements are being projected. Includ

In January. One Interesting feature of
the club life will be that each member
who absents himself from any of the re

One of the earliest exhibits to be In

Rose Festival floats, parades and other
features of this now permanently or

of the space to be devoted to the Port

the promoters of this movement will

few weeks, inasmuch as the Oregon

Coincident with these nlans. another
attractive form of advertising the roses
of Portland at the Seattle Fair has been
devised. As soon as the state, county
and local exhibits which are to have
place in the Oregon building have been
installed and the building thrown open,
some time in February, as is now ex
pected, fresh roses from Portland" gar
dens will be sent over to Seattle every
day, and an exhibit of the "queen of
flowers" will be maintained, fresh and
fragrant, from that time on. In con
nection with this display, attention of
visitors will be called to the fact that
there isn't a month In the entire year
when roses do not bloom in Portland.
This week the Portland Railway,
Light & Power Company will ask per
mission of the City Council to lay a
temporary track from Twenty-fourth
and Vaughn streets to the Agricultural
building, on the Lewis and Clark Expo
sition grounds. This structure is to be
the "den" In which the electrical floats
for the next Rose Festival are to be
constructed. Float-builders who have
had years of experience in similar lines
at New Orleans' Mardi Gras and St.
Louis' "Veiled Prophet" celebrations
will be here to initiate this work about
February 1. Each float will take more
than a week to build, and as there are
to be 16 of these pieces in the parade.
it will keep the sculptors and artists
busy from that time right up to the

WITTENBERG IS AROUSED
Declares Reports From South of
Impending Formation of.
Trust Are Animated
A bitter cracker war is on between
rival Paclllc Coast manufacturers. On
one side are arrayed the Pacific Coast
Biscuit Company, of this city, of which
Herman Wittenberg Is vice-president and
general manager, and the American Bis
cuit Company, of San Francisco, both
plants being owned by t3ie same interests.
The opposition includes plants located in
San Francleco, Oakland and Los Angeles.
So keen has the competition grown
among these companies for business that
the cracker market is said to have be
come badly demoralized, and for some
time representatives of the various
cracker companies have been endeavoring
to effect some plan of settlement by
which an end can be placed to such dia
astrous trade conditions. In the mean
timo the public Is getting crackers and
biscuits at a figure that leaves the Man
ufacturer a small margin of profit.
The rival companies have been resorting
to all sorts of methods to acquire new
business at the expense of each other,
and those activities have reached a stage
that misrepresentation is alleged to have
been adopted as a weapon In some cases.
That Is the charge made by Mr. "Witten
berg against the California companies.
He asserts that they are responsible for
tho report that he is engineering a scheme
for organlzinz the Pacific Coast cracker
manufacturers Into a trust, to become
effective shortly after the first of the
'There will be no 'cracker trust' on tne
Pacific Coast before or after January 1,
and any statement to the contrary is false
and mieleadlng, asserted Mr. Wltten
berg yesterday. "The opposition com
panles In California have for some time
been undertaking to secure control of
our two properties. Failing to do so they
have done everything possible to rum
the market and hamper our business,
with the result that the manufacture and
sale of the products of all cracker con
cerns Is anything but profitable.
Damaging Reports Spread.
'But even this course has failed to
force us into dealing in any manner,
save to meet ruinous competition, with
those who would force our retirement
from the field," continued Mr. Wittenberg-.
"As a last resort these same
Interests have again started the story
that we were seeking to organize a
trust of theso companies on the Pa
cific Coast. In order to give this re
port the semblance of a possibility the
same people associated with that mis
representation the further falsehood
that our companies were embarrassed
with a heavy Indebtedness, it is sin
gular that these reports originate at
regular Intervals In ban 'rancisco
only, to be conveyed to this city for
further distribution by telegraphic dis
patches. These reports are maliciously
false and are calculateu soieiy to in
jure our business.
"The Pacific Coast Biscuit Company,
through its officers, purohased the
American Biscuit Company in lu,
and not in 1905, and up to the earth
quake operated the same very suc
cessfully. The great earthquake en
tirely destroyed the property of , the
company. This necessitated the re
building of the company's plants. And
there has been erected in San Fran
cisco one of the largest and most com
plete cracker and candy plants in the
United States, costing, including the
ground. building and machinery,
11,500,000. The plant was completed
and put Into operation in the early
part of the present year, and has been
in continual operation since that time,

several cracker companies were organ
ized In San Francisco, but had a
very short career. Two of them went
Into bankruptcy, the Crystal Cracker
Company of San Francisco, and the
Golden Gate Cracker Company of Oak
land. The machinery of the first named
company was afterward purchased by
the American Biscuit Company and
operated pending the completion of
the plant. In February of the present
year the assistant manager of the
American Biscuit Company withdrew
from the American Biscuit Company
and purchased the Golden Gate Crack
er Company and reorganized it Into the
Dunn Cracker Company, which was
financed by some Omaha capital and
some San Francisco parties, and the
company is operating- in a small way
In the State of California. Two other
plants, outside of the American Bis
cuit Company, are also operating In
San Francisco, three are operating In
Los Angeles and one in Sacramento.
"With so many factories in tne neia
the natural result Is and has been
demoralization of the prices and a
continual cracker war. The American
Biscuit Company has been continually
on the defensive, holding us territory
and endeavoring to hold Its business
against all competition ana aomg so
Try to Effect Settlement.
"Renresentatives of the various
cracker companies have attempted to
bring about a settlement ot tne situa
tion, but all of these overtures have
hpun relected. as no reasonable propo
sltion has ever been offered on account
of the parties not having sufficient
capital to give them serious consiner-atinn-
and thev have repeatedly been
informed that the Interests of the Pa
cific Coast Biscuit Company ana tne
American Biscuit Company have not
been for sale on any sucn terms as
they have mentioned.
"It seems, however, that various par
ties are endeavoring to resort to un
fair and malicious methods in tne vain
hope that some result may be reached,
but the more of that kind of tactics
that Is practiced the less possibility
will there be for a settlement.
"The statement that the raciric
Coast Biscuit Company has recently
borrowed $800,000 from a life Insur
ance company Is a malicious and con
temptible falsehood. None of the com
tanies represented by the Pacific
Coast Biscuit Company has ever
borrowed a dollar from any life
Insurance company, or any other In
surance company. All of Its liabilities
rest among its stock and bondholders,
and what reasonable accommodations
thev receive from the banks in tne
cities in which they do business. And
the company Is In no way Involved,
as its assets are represented by nearly
55 to $1 of liabilities, and Is therefore
amply able to take care of all of Its
Says Story Will Be Proved False.
"As the 1st of January Is not far
away, it will soon be proven as to
how much truth there Is In the ridic
ulous statements that have been con
tained In the dispatches from San
Francisco. It Is possible that. In order
to secure orders from the general
trade, these parties thought that a
rumor or statement to the effect that
prices would advance on account of a
consolidation and that such consoli
dation was being considered, may be
one of the reasons that parties are
spreading the reports referred to."
In the dispatch from San Francisco
Mr. Wittenberg was alleged to have
made advances to James Dunn, of the
Dunn Cracker Company, looking to the
organization of a trust. This feature
of the report also is denied positively
by Mr. Wittenberg, who says that he
has not met Dunn for nearly a year.
The last time they met, according to
Mr. Wittenberg, was for the purpose
of paying off the remaining interests
to the old American Biscuit Company
stockholders, all of which has been
