wind at the time blowing nine miles an
hour. In about ten minutes he had
floated out of eight In the direction of
the city. H" returned after a trip sof
about a quarter of an hour, reporting
the mind too fluky for high flight. Hla

six bombs. One of these dropped Into
the funnel of a battleship and It there

his bomb-dropping.
Hoxsey flew his Wright In almost
every conceivable manner, now In tapcr
Ing longitudinal spirals, now gracefully
gliding from great heights, then literal
ly gliding over the surface of the earth
only to rise again into the upper air. He
made three flights In all during the
afternoon.
Shortly after 4 o'clock angry clouds In

Watson, of Portland, submitted h's brief
today to the State Land Board In the ap
plication for Warner Valley swamp
lands, which include about 23,000 acres
that the state recovered from the Warner

ently the board Is desirous of securing a
higher price. Watson contended that It
haa bern tbe custom to charge ti an acre
and that It now has no right to Increase
the prce of the Warner Valley lands.
The subject has been taken under ad
Tisment. The Board authorised a deed of cor
rection 1'T B. B. Bekman, the deed cov

standing that the former hours and
rates of wages shall continue In effect
until December 1 next, and that any
changes mutually agreed upon shall then
become effective."
To this offer the representatives of the
strikers assented as follows:
Knd fctrtae Is Advised.
The undersigned hereby receive ths
terms of the said letter In settlement of
the strike and advUe tkesald employes
to resume work thereon at once and
end the strike. We proposed these same
laxma Hixuuai lb AUipr last ilidax
AVI AT H
ATM
at his report and adhere to them now at
his request,"
Before the agreement was signed ths
day had been turbulent, confused and
full ot statements and counter-statements.
There was mors rioting than at any
other time during the strike. John
Williams, ths State Commissioner of
Labor, threatened an official Investi
gation If matters did not end. to which
IL S. Juller. general manager of the
American Express Company, replied
that his company would welcome all
the publicity possible.
City Must bhomr Cause.
Counsel for Adams, ths United
States and the Wella-Fargo Companies
obtained an order from Judge Cox in
the United States Circuit Court; direct
ing the city to show cause tomorrow
why it should not be restrained from
enforcing the ordinance which requires
carriers of Interstate express matter to
take out city licenses. .
Two hundred applications for li
censes were filed this afternoon.
It was directly due to Mayor Gay
nor's attitude that ths agreement was
drawn up and signed.
The worst of the trouble today came
not from the express employes, but
from ahe striking taxicab chauffeurs
who went out with them in sympathy.
They mobbed taxlcabs driven by non
union men and squabbled with the po
lice until It was necessary to threaten
them with drawn revoivera and with
swinging night-sticks. Bottles, stones,
bricks and looae ends of Iron flew
thick. There were many broken heads,
but only five arrests.
The hundred chauffeurs who struck In
sympathy with the expressmen and went
back to work a week ago when their
demands were granted were directed to
strike again because the company would
not permit them to wear the union
button.
It was ordered that all garages still
hostile to the union bo picketed to
morrow. The tone of the meeting was quietly
belligerent.
A committee representing the employ
ers not the union, which has organ
ised and conducted the striks and the
executive officers of the companies met
the agreement for presentation at the
mass meeting.
GIVE YOU 10 PIANOS
FOR THE RETAIL PRICE OP OXE,
OR WE DON'T ASK TO SELL.
We Built the Pianos Shipped
Them to Wrong Place Won't
Ship Them Back iot to Sell.
If you are at all Interested in the
plsno even remotely so and could but
realise the enormous difference between
the retail price of a piano In the West,
and the factory wholesale cost of a piano
at Its factory In the East, and could
then on top of that realise that the
"Cote" Piano Manufacturing Company,
of Fail River, Mass.. were by error In
shipping directions caught hers with a
large shipment of pianos from their own
factory, that had to be quickly disposed
of, and ' that were actually being sold
retail to private parties here In Port
land at their exact wholesale prices to
dealers, at their Fall River factory
regardless of our having paid over CO
each for freight here I'm sure you
wouldn't wait two minutes longer
than you could grab your bat and get
to thla store, at the corner of Park
and Morrison, select tbe piano, and set
tle that matter now.
These conditions are at hand right
now right here In Portland.
The difference between the retail pries
and the factory wholesale price la more
than half; and the freight Is paid, and
lost and ws don't Intend to tack It on
to the factory wholesale price not at
all The factory wholesale price at Fall
River. Massachusetts, will set any style
of our Cote" piano In your bouse In
Portland, and we allow no man to build
a better piano.
Tbe "Cote" piano Is built upon honor,
snd Is being sold here upon honor, and
we want your, confidence; It will not
d misplaced. I assure you.
Ws will give you a better piano for
ri than you can buy anywhere else
In Portland for 40u. Thie piano sells
for HOO retail In New York and Boston,
and pianos are sold at least 150 higher
here In Portland than they are In the
East.
What we state here are facts, and It
will be realised by all who enter here.
Our terms - are SCS down and (10 a

BENEFIT IS POSTPONED
RAIN COMPELS COMMITTEE TO
CALL OIF GAME.
Exhibition Contest by Champion
Beavers Will Be Held When tbe
Weather Shows Improvement.
Because of the deluge of rain In
Portland and vicinity during; the past
few days, the committee In charge of
the baaeball benefit fund being sub
scribed by the Portland fans in token
of their appreciation of the champion
ship won by ths Beavers, yesterday de
cided to postpone the benefit game,
scheduled for Sunday, November IS. to
a date to be named later.
Rain has so flooded the bail park at
Twenty-fourth and Vaughn streets,
that It would be absolutely Impossible
to play there Sunday, and the players
themselves, unanimously announced
that they wanted to give the fans a
run for their money and suggested the
postponement and expressed a willing
ness to remain in Portland for a week
or ten days longer In order to accom
modate the patrons of the game who
have so nobly demonstrated their ap
proval of the champions.
The action yesterday means that the
benefit game will be played as soon
as the weather settles, and will prob
ably be one week from Sunday, or
November 20. The enthusiasm In the
giving of the Beavers a big sendoff
Is unabated, though the wet weather
has dampened the enthusiasm of the
committee selling tickets, and no sales
have been reported since Monday. How
ever, telephone notices from the com
mittee to Treasurer Bortxmeyer Indi
cate that the fund is growing rapidly
but ths solicitors have been too busy
to report at the Merchant's. Savings

SEATTLE, Wash., Nov. 10. Tl)e ma
jority for the woman suffrage amend
ment to the state constitution, on an es
timated basis of returns already . re
ceived, will exceed 15,000. The vote was
about two to one for the amendment.
The plurality of W. E. Humphrey. Rep
resentative In the First, or Seattle dis
trict. Is presumably TWO, showing that he
was voted for by moat of the Insurgents
of the district, although he was formerly
a close friend of Speaker Cannon.
The Democrats gained a few seats In
the Legislature, but otherwise made a
poor showing. Washington appears as
the most steadfast Republican state In
the Union, but this is accounted for by
the upheaval in the September primaries,
which put the "progressive" Republicans
in control of the party.
The Socialist vote in the Mate Is esti
mated at 4300.

MndVSllaging Campaign at Olympia
Did Not Hurt Republicans.
OLYMPIA. Wash., Nov. 10. (Special.)
Complete returns, from the City of
Olympia and from IS of the 20 outside
precincts show that the entire Repub
lican ticket was successful In Thurston
County at the election Tuesday. Every
county candidate was elected; the Re
publican candidate for Congress ran
more than 400 ahead of the Democrat In
the Second District and tbe present Su
preme Court Judges were given a hand
some indorsement.
The campaign waged by the women
who want to vote showed Its effects dur
ing the day and the returns indicate that
woman's suffrage has carried In Thurs
ton County by almost two to one, al
though some of tbe precincts failed to
make any return on this question.
Thurston County has witnessed some
bitter campaigns in tbe past, but tbe one
just brought to a close was marked by
mud-sllnglng of the worst nature. The
factions in the Republican party split
wide apart, but the efforts to knife the
ticket in places failed, as every man on
It went Into office and the Democrats
have little solace. P. M. Troy, the Dem-ocratlc-nonpartisaa
candidate for the Su
preme Court, ran more than 600 behind
the loweat Republican judge and this, is
Troy's home county.
The new Thurston County officers are:
Sheriff. George Gaston; Clerk, D. G. Par
ker; Auditor. C A. Burr; Treasurer,
Robert Marr; Prosecuting Attorney, John
M. Wilson: Assessor, S. T. Bennett; Su
perintendent of Schools. -L. A. Klbbe;
ommlssloner. First District, T. J. Mc
Kratney; Commissioner, Second District,
A. M. Rowe; Coroner, El M. McCllntlc.
On the constitutional amendments ths
returns show: Woman's suffrage, for 719,
against 493: succession to office of Gov
ernor, for HI. against SSI. and on town
ship organization, for 70S, against 376.
The Republicans even carried the mi

SEATTLE, Wash., Nov. 10. The Public
Welfare League, which Is In charge of
the recall movement against Mayor
Hiram C. Gill, Is counting on the newly
enfranchised women voting In the recall
election. The women will be qualified
voters as soon as Governor Hay an
nounces the result of the vote as certi

The Welfare League's plan la to have
the election lata In December. Under
the law, ten days will be provided for
registration of new voters, and the
women may then place their names on
ths roll. The league thinks that a
moral Issue such as is presented by the
effort to suppress vice snd gambling
will cause large numbers of women to
vote for the league's candidate.
