Grill Room.
Angered Because Spouse Secured
Separation Month Ago, S. T.
Bolcn Shoots ex-Wife Before
Crowd Wounds Xot Fatal.
S. T. Bolen, a brakeman employed
toy the O. R. & N.. brought his domes
lie difficulties with his divorced wife
to a tragic close last night by shoot
ing her through the head and then
committing suicide, in full view of a
dozen patrons In the Hotel Portland
The wounded woman was hurried to
Good Samaritan Hospital -with, a bullet
wound in the neck below the left ear.
She will live.
Bolen died instantly as a result of
two bullets fired into his head through
ithe mouth. His body was removed to
the morgue by Deputy Coroner Dun
ning. Couple Recently Divorced.
The Bolens were divorced four weeks
ego. Since their legal separation Bo
len is said to have constantly annoyed
Jiis ex-wife and made threats against
(her life.
Last night, while she and Mrs. C. H.
barker, the wife of a salesman residing
.t Nineteenth and Everett streets, were
walking leisurely about the downtown
streets, Mrs. Bolen espied her former
husband close on their trail. Antici
pating that he was determined to ex
ecute his threats against her life, she
and Mrs. Parker walked briskly to
Washington and Seventh streets.
Hoping to elude Bolen, the woman
'walked hurriedly south on Seventh street.
Bolen followed close behind. When both
women reached the Seventh-street en
trance of the Hotel Portland, Mrs. Bolen
and her companion made a final effort to
elude the revengeful husband by dodging
Into the entrance. Bolen, discerning
their movements, quickened his steps and
hurried after the fleeing women through
the corridor of the hostelry.
Bewildered by the apparent determina
tion of her husband to cause her bodily
harm, Mrs. Bolen dashed through the
cloakroom into the grill.
Shots Startle Diners.
Whipping out a 32-caliber revolver,
the irate husband ran after her and,
"with a curse, leveled the weapon at her
head just as she passed the threshold
of the doro leading into the grill.
"When within four feet of her he fired.
The bullet struck her under the lobe of
the left ear. Before the startled
patrons in the elite establishment real
ized that a tragedy was being enacted
two more pistol shots rang out. The
would-be murderer had turned the
weapon upon himself, sending two more
Dullets into his own head. He fell dead
on the floor less than six feet from his
prostrated victim.
A panic followed among the occu
pants of the grill room. Several women
fainted and had to be carried from the
William McHinton, a colored waiter
who was a witness to the tragedy, was
the first to reach the wounded woman's
side. He lifted her upon a table, while
other employes hastened to summon
Dr. C. A. Macrum, the house physician.
Bolen was pronounced dead by the phy
sician a moment later. Upon a hasty
examination of the woman's wound Dr.
ilacrum stated that her injuries were
iiot fatal, and ordered her removed to
. hospital.
Couple Wedded in Kansas City.
The suicide is 30 years of age and
his victim is several years his junior.
They were married in Kansas City
lour years ago. Two years ago they
came to Portland. The couple quar
reled frequently and at various periods
lived apart.
During their intermittent separations
Mrs. Bolen secured employment in lo
cal department stores. Her most re
cent employment was in the toy de
partment of one of the large depart
ment stores. She resigned her position
two months ago.
Since securing her divorce from her
husband a month ago Mrs". Bolen has
resided with friend3 in various sec
tions of the city.
The culmination of the marital re
lations of the Bolens last night was
.expected by the woman and friends of
the couple.

Estacada Xcar-Beer Situation Xot
Cleared by Poll.
OREGON CITY. Or., June 30. (Spe
cial.) Conditions in Kstacada relative
to the liquor traffic have not been
cleared by the straw vote that was
taken there Monday night. The Coun
cil called an advisory election to as
certain whether the people wanted
regular saloon licenses or whether they
wanted even the near-beer stands
closed. The result gave a majority of
one vote for the "wets."
At the June election two years ago
the precinct went dry by about 30 ma
jority. Two resorts obtained licenses
later to operate pool, billiard and card
tables, at a stipulated fee of $25 a quar
ter. The Council declined to Issue li
censes for the sale of near-beer, but
the men who are conducting the two
resorts at Kstacada were given to un
derstand, it Is said, that they might
dispense near-beer without fear of be
ing molested by the city authorities.
Near-beer is sold openly, without li
cense, and it is stated that real beer Is
shipped from Portland to Currinsvllle
and transported here by wagon.
IDAHO MAY JSET $4,000,000
Estimated Share of Irrigation Fund
to Complete Two Projects.
BOISE. Idaho, June 30. (Special.)
It is estimated that Idaho's share of
the $20,000,000 irrigation bond- Issue
will be approximately $4,000,000,
enough to complete most of tne un
finished projects, including the Mini
doka and the Payette-Boise.
According to F. W. Hanna, chief en
gineer, the money should first be used
for the completion of the Payette
Boise project. The north side of the
Minidoka project stands completed and
about 56 per cent of the remainder is
Of the Payette-Boise project, the
south side unit, exclusive of storage.
Is nearly 75 per cent completed. The
Deer Flat reservoir is practically com
pleted for 186,000 acre-feet of water.
Preliminary investigations have been
made for reservoirs to build on the up
per Boise River from which water will
be used to irrigate land at the, upper
end of the project.
It is anticipated by engineering ex
perts that the Payette-Boise south
side unit will be done in 1912, except
the storage on the upper Boise River,
and it will take a much longer time to
complete the reservoirs. A total of
243,000 acres of land is involved under
the south side unit, 164,000 acres of
which have no water rights at all. The
north side unit involves about 75,000
acres, but the settlers have formed the
Black Canyon irrigation district under
the state irrigation law, and it is not
known whether the Government will do
any work on it.
Fish Marked Six Years Ago Are
Caught in Traps."
ASTORIA. Or., June, 30. (Special.)
Several of the well-established theories
regarding the habits of salmon are be
ing upset b'y facts which have come to
light during the present season.
It has always been supposed that sal
mon returned to the river the fourth
year after being hatched, but this sea
son no less than 15 marked salmon,
which were turned out in the chlnook
hatchery six years ago, have been
caught in the Bakers Bay traps. Re
ports from other points on the river
also are that five female salmon which
have spawned have been caught in the
traps, although it has always been sup
posed that the female fish perish im
mediately after having spawned.
These salmon were in fairly good
condition, so that they could not have
ascended to the upper reaches of the
river, and they are believed to have
been salmon which spawned, perhaps
prematurely, in some of the tributaries
of the Lower Columbia.

Spaldings Thought Behind Proposed
Railroads Along Coast.
NEWPORT, Or., June 30. (Special.)
Morris Wygant finished a location
railroad survey along the Coast from
Slletz Bay to Yaquina Bay today. The
preliminary survey was made two years
Wygant would make no statement,
but from remarks dropped around
camp it is believed the Spalding Lum
ber Company, of Falls City, is behind
the proposed railroad. On the other
hand, the United Railways Company
has let a 24-mile contract for a line
Into Tillamook, which is 25 miles above
Slletz Bay.
A railroad along the Coast to Ya
quina Bay is needed for the removal
of the valuable timber in the Slletz
Reservation, as Yaquina Bay is the
nearest deep-water harbor.

Activity in Industrial Lines In
creases Rapidly in First
Half of Year. '
Construction for 1910 to Date Totals
Close to $8,600,000 Bank
Clearings Show Decided Gain
. Over Previous Year.
Portland's stable and conservative
growth along all industrial lines is vivid
ly portrayed in official records for the
first half of 1910 as compared with the
same period of 1909.
Building, real estate, bank clearings,
postal receipts, livestock returns and
shipping reports all unite in declaring
the prosperity of Portland to the world.
June, usually a month of no especial ac
tivity, has held up strongly and shows
increases over the corresponding month
of last year which are really remark
able. Building Permits Jump.
For the first half of 1910 as compared
with the same period of 1909 the increase
In building permits is shown to be 36.54
per cent, in real estate transfers, 24.83
per cent; in bank clearings, 39.52 per
cent, and In postal receipts, 16.88 per
cent. Livestock reports show that busi
ness has . developed to a gigantic size
with a gain running into the tens of
thousands in receipts of cattle, hogs and
sheep but a loss in the shipments of
horses and mules. The gain In cars
utilized is 41.03 per cent.
Marine statistics show that lumber
shipments have been exceeding all pre
vious records with an increase for the 12
months Just closed of over 22 per cent
in both valuation and amount.
June records are even more significant.
The increase in building permits for the
month over June a year ago is 95.04 per
cent. Real estate transfers show an in
crease of 49.63 per cent and the great
wealth of business which was carried on
in Portland last month resulted in an in
crease of 40.28 per cent in bank clear
ings. Postal receipts showed a gain for
June of 12.38 per cent. Increase in the
livestock industry is shown for these
periods at between 10 and 50 per cent on
the various commodities handled.
The greatest increase for the month is
in the item of building permits. Last
month there were issued 3189 permits ag
gregating in value $1,687,725 or 95.04 per
cent greater than in June. 1909. This
great record, which is in line with the
general increase for the year, brings the
total for the first six months of 1910 to
$8,609,692. This is $2,304,257 more than
were issued in the corresponding period
of 1909 and with the great wealth of
building projects now contemplated it is
possible that this city will jump close
to $18,000,000 for the entire year.
It is interesting to note that for the
first six months of this year, up to June
28 inclusive, Seattle has issued $8,311,207
in building permits, or almost $300,000
less than Portland. This in a year
when Seattle is "remaking" the entire
city and "moving the business district."
Tteaity Men Keeping Quiet.
Real estate dealers have not been mak
ing a great noisre about their operations
in the last month, but the statistics, show
Portland to be more than holding its own
In this item of trade. The increase for
the month of June over the same period
of 1909 is 49,63, as represented by deeds
being filed for properties valued at
$2,595,110. For the six months the total
for Portland is $18,519,193, which puts in
the shade the mark of $14,844,623 for the
opening period of 1909.
Here again a comparison with the
Sound City can be made which indicates
the greater interest in realty in Portland
than in Seattle. Until June 28, inclusive,
Seattle had so far this year issued and
recorded deeds aggregating $13,740,189. Six
months ago, when Portland overshadowed
Seattle in the matter of realty transfers,
the citizens of that city attempted to ex
plain the decrease by pointing out that a
great railroad deed had been filed in 1908
which caused the decreasa for the year.
As there was a big deed mentioned in 1909
it is hard to see how the Sound City
will explain the present low mark in
realty transfers.
As hag been. the case all year, the bank
clearings have been going ahead rapidly.
The increase of 39.52 per cent for the first
half year is represented by a gain of
$70,753,187 over the 1909 figures, bringing
the mark this year to $249,811,723. The
June record shows an increase of over
$12,000,000 or 40.28 per cent. That this
figure is not due to any unexceptional
business transacted last month may be
gathered from an inspection of the
records, which show Portland's gain to
have been uniform all year.
Postal Receipts Jump.
Postal receipts showed a good gain for
the half year and also for June, the
increase of 6.88 per cent for the opening
six months of 1910 and of 12.38 per cent
for the month of June being good indices
of the general growth of the city. The
figure of $72,370 for June is estimated
owing to the returns for yesterday being
incomplete last night.
The Portland Union Stockyards have
been in operation but a short time at the
new plant on the Peninsula, but already
the vast increase in business is notice
able. According to a general report of
conditions sent out by D. O. Lively, gen
eral agent of the company, the market
for cattle of top quality has remained
unchanged, during the month while the
inferior classes have declined. The call
for light-weight steers of good quality
and for cows, heifers and calves has not
been met by the shippers.
As compared with last year the hog
receipts from local territory show a
considerable increase, the total being
14,347. Cattle and Bhcep also show pro
portionate, large increases. Mr. Lively
places an estimate on the value of the
livestock for the six months ending June
30, 1910, as $4,500,000. The establishment
of this market ha? meant much to the
livestock Industry of the Pacific' North
west and it la said now to be but in its
infancy. The value of the livestock
handled in June is placed at abeut
Lumber shipments have increased won
derfully, the fiscal year just closed show
ing a grand total of 110.853.764 feet sent
to foreign ports and valued at $1,268,682.
In 1908-1909 the corresponding figures were
82,688,790 feet and $1,043,077. Wheat ship
ments show Portland to command second
place in the wheat shipping customs dis
tricts of the United. States.
A tabulated comparative schedule of
the business In the various lines of in
dustry is given for the first six months
of 1909 and 1910, as follows:

Purchases Made in Warehouse
District Are No Longer
$2,000,000 IS INVOLVED
Broadway Bridge Proposition Causes
Harriman Interests to Display
Hand Tracts Will Xot Be
Put to Immediate Use.
After remaining a secret for IS months,
the identity of the purchaser of the tier
of blocks in the North Find warehouse
and railroad terminal district, bounded by
Twelfth, Hoyt, Thirteenth and Quimby
streets, is now disclosed as the Oregon
Railroad & Navigation Company. It is
also now known that the same company
was the purchaser last Kali of the three
blocks opposite the main entrance to the
Union Station, the two tracts involving
an expenditure of more than $2,000,000.
Both purchases were made very quietly
and every precaution was taken to pre
serve from public knowledge the real In
terests back of' the two deals.
Bridge Talk Bares Deal.
Recently, however, duVing the consid
eration of several factors connected with
the proposed construction of the Broad
way bridge, it became necessary for the
railroad company to reveal to city offi
cials its hand in the two real estate
transactions and the deeds are now under
course of preparation from those who
have held the property in trust, and will
be placed on record within a few days.
(Both transactions were made through
the agency of C. K. Henry. The pur
chase of the first tier of nine blocks
was ostensibly made, by a Los Angeles
syndicate headed by John W. Craig,
who, it later developed, is a brother-in-law
of Mr. Henry. The tier of blocks
is located advantageously for terminal
property and adjoins, in part at least,
holdings of both the Northern Pacific
and the Terminal Company.
All Roads Mentioned.
Speculation as to the purchasers at the
time the sales were made took in all
the railways operating in Oregon and
some that are not. At that time, officials
of the Terminal Company denied that
that company was the purchaser and
Louis W. Hill, president of the Great
Northern, declared that the sale had
not been made to either the Great North
ern or Northern Pacific.
Strictly speaking, the assertion of
the Terminal Company officials was
correct, for the property was pur
chased for the Oregon Railroad & Nav
igation Company, but it was with the
expectation that it would later be
added to the holdings of the Terminal
Company. That the property will be
utilized In connection with the pres
ent terminals is now known, but it has
not been announced whether owner
ship will remain in the O. R. & N. or
be acquired by the Terminal Company.
O'Brien liaised Money.
The blocks included in the deal are
numbered 118. 125, 136, 143, 185, 202,
215, 227 and 240. At the time the sales
were made the aggregate consideration
was estimated to be $1. 500,000. It is
now said on good authority that J. P.
O'Brien, vice-president of the O. R. &
N., personally raised the money in the
East for the purchase.
It is "also related that the Hill in
terests had their eyes on the same
blocks, but were forestalled by the
Harriman people. At that time the
Terminal Company itself was prohib
ited by injunction from acquiring more
property, the restraining order hav
ing issued in the "terminal war" In
stituted in the courts by the James J.
Hill Interests.
Purchase Made in Fall.
The purchase of the several blocks
opposite the Union Depot came to light
last October and the same mystery
surrounded the transaction as in
the earlier deals. C. A. Dolph, presi
dent of the Northern Pacific Terminal
Company, denied that that company
had . negotiated the purchases and
through other sources a Hill enterprise
was hinted. The property thus trans
ferred consists of blocks U, Y, V and
W, with the exception of about five
per cent of one of the blocks.
The three tracts "square off" the
corner of the Northern Pacific Termi
nal Company holding's and were pur
chased by the O. R. & N. Co. through
the agency of C. K. Henry and the
Wakefleld-Fries Company. It is the
expectation that this property, in time,
will be utilized by the Terminal Com
East Side Corner Brings $45,000.
Flats Sold Tor $17,000.
East Side real estate took a forward
step yesterday through the sale of a
single lot at the southeast corner of
Union avenue and East Burnside streets
for $45,000. The property was purchased
from B. W. Mutch by E. J. Daly, who
will hold the corner for a client. The site
is occupied by four frame buildings
leased for three and one-half years and
bringing in a rental of $223 a month. The
buyer is an out-of-town man who intends
to improve at the expiration of the lease.
The property is in the heart of one of
the best retail sections on the East Side.
Through the agency of B. J. Daly , the
Simpson flats on Northrup street, be
tween Twenty?first and Twenty-second
streets, were sold for $17,000. H. T. Hud
son, a retired merchant, bought the prop
erty. Mrs. Ada Simpson is the seller.
The site is 50x100 feet and the improve
ments consist of a four-flat frame build
ing of two stories. It brings in a good,
rental and will be held as an investment.
Mr. Daly also reports that the same
out-of-town buyer of the Mutch prop
erty has bought a tract of ten acres, just
south of and adjoining Council Crest
Park. It was bought from the Hibernia
Savings Bank, trustee, for $10,000, and
will either be utilized as site for a
country home or platted and resold.
The Portland Pacific Investment Com
pany, consisting of A. K. Poulsen and
G. V. Johnson, has purchased block 14,
Hawthorne avenue addition, from A. B.
Scott for $15,000. The block is on East
Forty-second, East Forty-first and East
Clay streets. The buyers will improve it
with homes. The sale was made through
the agency of the H. P. Palmer-Jones
Announcement was made yesterday
that James Sargent "auditor of the Hotel
Portland, had purchased for $14,500 the
Barry tract of 240 acres adjoining the
townsite of Burlington on the United
Railways. James Dowd, as executor of
the estate of James Barry, negotiated the
deal in conjunction with William M.
Cake, attorney. The entire payment was
made in gold coin. i
