FOR LYTLE ROAD
J. W. Sweeney Successful Bid
der for Big Railroad Con
HIS BID ABOUT $1,500,000
Delay In Awarding Work Vntil Con
tractor Furnishes Bond Line
Will Be Completed by
The contract for the construction of
the final 53 miles of the Pacific Railway
& Navigation Company was let yester
day. J. V. Sweeney, Isaac Blumauer and
H. N. Blumaupr were the successful bid
ders. It is understood that the Harri
man engineers- estimate of 12,000,000 was
ftraled about $o00.000.
It has been understood for a consider
able time that Sweeney and his financial
bat-kers were the lowest bidders, the one
obstacle to clinching the contract being
the delivery of a bond for JIOO.OOO. The
usual bond would be 10 per cent on the
total, or J160.000. but it is generally be
lieved that President E. E. Lytle. of the
Pacific Railway & Navigation Company,
strained a point in this respect to give
the benefit to a local contractor.
.Mr. Sweeney was unable to obtain his
bond up to yesterday, but he was able
to furnish proofs that the bond would
be forthcoming before the final date
given him by Mr. "L.ytle. and with this
understanding he was Informed he might
consider the contract his. but was not
permitted to sign up until he could defi
nitely produce his bond. The bonding
company is said to have been annoyed
by the efforts of other contractors who
have tried to prove Mr. Sweeney Inca
pable of carrying out the contoact.
It is understood that the amount of Mr.
Sweeney's bid approximated very closely
1,600.000, although no confirmation could
be had from Mr. Lytle. Caughern &
AVoldson, of Spokane, who have handled
Brae of the C. M. & St. P. work, were
the next lowest contractors, being about
:w.000 above Sweeney in their bid. A. J.
McC'abe was third bidder, and waa still
jao.OOO to the bad. Mr. Sweeney was a
cub-contractor on the Southern Pacific
extension from lrain to Coos Bay, and
when further construction was stopped
The contract is one of the largest let
In the state of Oregon, and is certainly
the largest contract let In Oregon for
some years. By commencing immediate
construction it is thought the whole line
may be competed by the Summer of 1910.
and probably in time to take care of a
portion of the beach traffic in that sea
son. Many difficulties confront the con
tractor. He must construct wagon roads
where now but rough trails exist. This
will call for an expenditure of probably
JM0.O0O, and this must be done before the
contractor Is reimbursed a cent. The
distance is 63 miles. There are 19 tun
nels of varying length, and In many
places the roaring mountain torrents
must be bridged. Much of the construc
tion embraces rock work jexceptionally
heavy in character.
Julius Kruttschnltt announced to Pres
ident Iytle over a month ago that the
funds were at the disposal of 'Mr. Lytle
for the building of what will become a
tmbsldlary Harrlman line. Mr. Lytle has
earned some little distinction as a rail
road builder, having been the builder of
the Columbia Southern to Shaniko and
the Condon road to Central Oregon. He
also made the Harrlman survey up the
Deschutes Canyon. "I have now enough
confidence In Mr. Sweeney," said Mr.
Lytle yesterday, "to give him the con
tract. I expect he will make good this
week with his bond, and anyway he has
until Friday to obtain it."
TRAINS CRASH IX TCXXEl
Two Sections of Southern Pacific
Overland In Collision.
Through the alleKed disregard of his
signals by Will Weber, engineer of the
second section of the Southern Pacific
train that left Portland at 7:45 Sunday
night, the locomotive of the second sec
tion of the train crashed into the observa
tion car on section one in West Fork
tunnel. One passenger and two members
of the crew were slightly injured.
Oeneral Superintendent Buckley dis
patched Superintendent L. R. Fields last
night to hold an investigation at Ash
land, which is about 50 miles from West
Fork. The collision occurred at 7:10
Monday morning, when the few passen
gers in the sleepers were still in their sec
tions. The passengers in the train were
composed mostly of the Portland and San
Francisco baseball teams, while a drawing-room
was taken by Airs. "Hazel"
The train is usually divided at the tun
nel, the day coaches and baggage cars
being brought on in a second section.
When the collision occurred, the engine,
tender and baggage car Jumped the track
and the observation car was considerably
wrecked. Although the block system is
in force in the tunnel, Harrlman officials
believe the engineer. Will Weber, disre
garded hta signals. The trains were pro
ceeding slowly or the results might have
been more serious.
Fiigineer Weber was bruised and a
dining-car chef was cut by flying glass
fragments. An unknown passenger was
stuifhed, but the consequences were not
serious. The train proceeded with little
BETTEIt FACItlTlKS ASKED
NtockRrowcr Wants Railroad Service
Improved to Portland.
Portland has grown to such an ex
tent that driving of cattle through the
streets is no longer advisable. This
waa the gist of the evidence given yes
terday by Elmer T. Connell before the
Railway Commission in an endeavor to
force the Astoria & Columbia road to
put in facilities for handling cattle at
turlng the hearing It developed that
there are no facilities for handling cat
tle between. Portland and Goble. with
the exception of pens at Scappoose. The
railroad holds that the business has
not been sufficient to encourage such
facilities, while Mr. Connell holds that
with the increased size of Portland it
will be necessary for all shippers to
move their cattle by train.
Mr. Connell Is the owner of practi
cally the whole of Deer Island." an
Island in the Coltimbia River 20 miles
from Portland. At low stages of the
river he drives his cattle through the
water to the mainland and then brings
them on to the stockyards for sale.
Officials Meet In Seattle.
A number of local railroad officials
left last night for Seattle for a con-
ference of passenger men In the North
west. The special point for decision is
the question of rates to Seattle during
the progress of the A.-Y-P Fair. Most
of the offiolals are interested from an
Kastern point of view in the selling of
tickets through Portland to Seattle.
Those leaving Portland to be present
at the conference were: H. M. Adams,
general freight and passenger agent
for the North Bank road; W. G. Kevins,
trafflo manager of the Oregon Electric,
and William McMurray and John M.
Scott, of the Harlman lines passenger
Traffic Matters Up.
Freight matters of one kind and an
other were under consideration in the
office of W. E. Coman, of the Harrl
man traffic department, in the Wells
Fargo building yesterday morning.
Representatives of the Northern Pa
cific, North Bank and Harriman lines
were present. A hearing was later held
in the offices of H. M. Adams, general
freight agent of the North Bank road,
when the Harriman officials were not
present. It was announced that no de
cision was reached.
SING "BOOSTER" SONGS
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS VItL
TARE PART IX PARADE.
Prizes Offered for Schools Partici
pating in East Side Pageant for
Two hundred and fifty students from
the Washington High School will march
In the Rose Festival parade on the East
Side on Friday night, June 11. and sing
the "600.000 population in 1912" booster
songs, under the direction of Professor
Emil Enna. This matter was practically
settled yesterday morning at the assem
bly called by Principal Herdman and at
tended by President C. A. Bigelow and
George Dllworth, of the East Side .Busi
ness Men's Club, who set forth what was
desired. Response to the request for
students to march as a grand chorus to
sing these booster songs was beyond any
expectation, and Mr. Bigelow expressed
"We had hoped to get 150 students."
he said, "but we shall easily have 250
fine students in line from the Washing
ton High, which will be one of the fea
tures of the occasion. We shall have the
Washington High School baseball team
also in line in uniform, bearing the pen
nant the team is expected to win. It was
with much satisfaction that we today
were enabled to finish up this part of our
Mr. Bigelow was notified yesterday
that the Elks order, of Portland, had de
cided to offer as a prize to the schools
taking part in the parade a magnificent
silk banner costing at least $100. The
first prize Is offered by A. B. Manley.
and will be a splendid silver vase that
will cost about $140. Selection of the
vase will probably be made today by Mr.
Manley and Mr. Bigelow. Mr. Manley
had three designs, all of beautiful finish,
in view, but he desires the Business
Men's Club to aid in selecting the vase.
A third prize will be a silver cup given
by the East Side Business Men's Club,
costing about $100. These three prizes
will be the principal ones, and will no
doubt stimulate the schools in turning out
a large number and in making special
effort to excel in the parade. The vase
from Mr. Manley will be first prize, and
will go to the school turning out the
largest number in the parade. To the
school making the best appearance in the
parade the Elks banner will go. .The
silver cup from the Business Men's Club
will be assigned later. Secondary prizes
are $10 for best dogcart and $5 for most
comical dog or pony cart.
M. M. Rlngler and Richard Genserow
ski, who will drill the children, will have
announcements made In the schools to
day of time and place where drills will
be held. The well-paved streets In Ladd
Addition, near Hawthorne avenue, will be
largely used for drilling the children. It
is thought that the exceptionally fine
prizes offered will result in a large turn
out of school children in the parade.
YOUNG BURGLAR CAPTURED
Otto Hartman Pursued as He Leaves
Scene of Robbery.
Otto Hartman, 22 years old. and a
hardened burglar, was arrested at the
point of a revolver at daylight yester
day morning by Patrolman Blair.
Hartman was just leaving the home of
F. W. Brown, 1535 East Fifteenth
street, when the officer discovered him.
A sprinting contest followed, in which
the officer opened fire on the fugitive,
causing him to halt and throw up his
Hartman later confessed to half a
dozen burglaries. His statement made
it plain that he has been working in
Portland for several weeks and has not
been particularly careful or shrewd.
Captain Baty has been on his trail, but
it remained for a uniformed officer to
finally effect his capture. Hartman
was .not armed when arrested.
The police, after getting his confes
sion, made a careful Inquiry into his
past conduct. It is believed he has a
long, hard record, despite his youth,
and the officers are confident that a
worse charge than burglary will be
found against him. It is suspected
that he has been engaged In highway
The young man confessed to robbing
the homes of W. C Williams, 1501 Mil
waukie street; John Kaufman, 586 Leo
avenue; F. W. Brown, whose place he
was leaving when seen by the officer,

BAPTIST MINISTERS MEET
Various Subjects Discussed at Weekly
Assembly of Association.
At the meeting yesterday of the Baptist
Ministerial Association the plan to have
F. W. Peabody. of Chicago, lecture here
in a movement against the spread of
Christian Science was discussed. Al
though it is somewhat uncertain as to
whether or not Mr. Peabody will visit
the Pacific Northwest, it was decided to
continue the committee having in charge
the matter of his appearance here.
Rev. A. B. Waltz, of this committee.
reported that the members had since
their appointment received a large num
ber of letters and pamphlets in support
of the Christian Science . doctrines. The
text book of the sect was characterized
by Rev. Mr. Waltz in the course of his
remarks as a "padlock to the scriptures"
rather than a key to the same.
A feature of the session was the dis
cussion of the assembly to be held at
Columbia Beach, beginning July 6. This
meeting will be In session for two weeks.
It is proposed that the morning sessions
shall be devoted to Bible study and re
ligious services. In the evening popular
lectures will be delivered by various
ministers and others who will be here for
the Baptist convention, to be held here
in June. This series of meetings prom
ises to be of great benefit to members of
the various congregations, as well as af
fording a pleasant outing.

R. F. Shepard. who disaneared from his
home on the Sandy Road ten days ago,
was found dead in Sullivan's Gulch at
noon yesterday. A bullet hole in the tem
ple explained the manner of death. A
note scrawled In his memorandum book

In view of the fact that the body had
been robbed, the police are making an
active investigation of the affair. It
Is known that Shepard had a. watch and
$70 in cash when he disappeared. There
was every Indication that the body had
been hurriedly searched, his watch chain
having been torn from his vest and his
pockets showing signs of having been
emptied by thieving hands. At this time
the authorities believe the robbery was
committed by some transient who
chanced upon the body.
A small caliber revolver lying beside
the body never belonged to Shepard, so
his wife avers, unless he bought it after
leaving home on the day of his disap
pearance. Police officers are now mak
ing a careful search among the pawn
shops and dealers in second-hand goods
to learn where the weapon was purchased
and by whom. Mrs. Shepard cannot
identify the handwriting of the note

He said last night that no inquest would

ownership of the revolver is to be looked
into, as are Shepard's movements on the
day of his disappearance.
Mrs. Shepard is positive that there
was no trouble that could have driven
her husband to suicide. They had been
married only six months and were very
happy, she said. Shepard was married
once before and had trouble with his flnst

impossible to make out whether or not
there were any powder burns. The scene

PRODUCE MAN IN TOILS
COMMISSION MERCHANT AR
RESTED ON OLD CHARGE.
J. C. Reed's Peculiar Methods Land
Him in Jail After Spectacular
Career in Two States.
J. C. Reed, commission merchant, whose
spectacular methods of buying and sell
ing fruit and produce have caused much
comment, was arrested yesterday on a
warrant charging him with the theft of
a carload of apples. The warrant is ex
actly three years old, and since its issu
ance Reed has been out of the state and.
so it is alleged, has served a year In a
Washington jail for operations similar to
those conducted by him in Oregon.
Reed is the head of' the Reed Fruit
Company, although the warrant on which
his arrest was effected was made out
against him when he was posing under
the name of Bradley and running the
Bradley Fruit Company, on Stark street,
near Second.; His methods were unusual
in the extreme. By sending out circulars
to farmers and fruitgrowers, he is said
to have got many customers, quoting a
scale of prices far in excess of the pre
vailing market. He also interested sta
tion agents to get produce for him, of
fering them as high as 25 per cent com
mission. Receiving produce at these ex
cessive prices, he would undersell the
market by fiO per cent or more, it is al
leged. Just how he could proceed under such
methods with profit to himself mystified
every one excepting those from whom he
made purchases. Eventually they came
to see the point. H. C. Bushnell. of
Junction City, Or.. ' says Reed's profit
was 100 per cent. Bushnell is the com
plainant in the old case against Reed. He
6ays he sold the commission man a car
load of fruit, collect on delivery, but has
never received a cent in payment. He
found that the prisoner wasn't good for
the amount due and that a swindle had
been perpetrated, and through ex-District
Attorney Manning got out a com
plaint charging larceny by embezzlement.
Reed, or Bradley, as he was i then known,
decamped before the warrant could be
served. He went to Tacoma, where he
engaged in similar dealings, landing in
jail, it is said by the police. On his re
lease he returned to Portland, quite un
mindful of the trouble in store for him
here, and was just getting under good
headway with his old system. Being
unable to supply bail, he was locked up
pending a hearing.

A good doctor has some in
struments and equipment
for all ailments.
I have treated hundreds of men who had long suffered a gradual decline of physical and mental energy
as a result of special ailments, and have been interested In noting the marked general improvement that fol
lows a thorough cure of the chief disorder. My success in curing difficult cases of long standing has made me
the foremost specialist treating men's diseases. This success is due to several things. It Is due to the study
I have given my specialty; to my having ascertained the exact nature of men's ailments, and to the original,
distinctive and thoroughly scientific methods of treatment I employ.
To those In doubt as to their true condition who wish to avoid the serious results that may follow neglect. I
offer free consultation and advice, either at my office or through correspondence. If your case is one of the
few that has reached an incurable stage, I will not accept it for treatment, nor will I urge my services upon any
one. I treat curable cases only, and cure all cases I treat.
So-called "weakness" in men Is
curable fully curable. It has not
been cured by those measures
commonly employed, for they are
methods based upon supposition
and not upon fact. Most of these
troubles in men are due '.o a
chronic state of inflammation in
the prostate gland, and not to a
disordered nervous condition, as
has been supposed. I treat the In
flammation by a local process that
does not fail to accomplish its pur
pose, and with this condition cor

and vigor return.

FLORIDA MAN WANTED
TO KNOW THE TRUTH
Put Cooper's Claim to a Test and
Proved Its Genuineness.
The theory of L. T. Cooper that most
of the ills of mankind emanate from
the stomach, and that it is only
necessary to restore that organ .to
normal condition in order to enjoy good
health is rapidly being accepted as
correct by people in all parts of the
country. His further claim that his
New Discovery medicine will effect
this change quickly and permanently
is supported by a vast army of fol
lowers. One of those to put the Cooper
theory and medicine to a test is K. V.
Ross, living at 205 Irvine street, Or
lando, Kla.. and an honored resident of
that community. Mr. Ross has made a
statement for publication with refer

which he says:

unable to do any work, and on numer
ous occasions when I tried to work, I
became ill from exhaustion. I had
little or no appetite, and the small
amount of food I did eat distressed me.
My digestion was bad, my bowels In a
miserable condition. I was nervous,
weak, tired and worn out all the time.
I could not sleep well, and would arise
In the morning feeling all worn out.
I tried numerous remedies, but instead
of getting better, I continued to de

"In a little while I developed a splen
