ELLIS MAY OBTAIN
Report Says Representative
Is Slated as Next Col
lector of Customs.
COLWELL ALSO MAY LOSE
Humor Has It That J oho B. Coffey
Will Bo Appointed V. S. Mr
hl C. V. Johnson Likely
to Be 3Idc Appraiser.
TV. n. Ellis. e-Representatlva In
Con-ress from tha Hecond Congres
sional District. ! slated for appoint
ment by President Tft as successor to
IV H. Malcolm. Collector of Custom.
This apparently reliable report, at first
merely a rumor, has developed until
the nomination of the Pendleton man
ppeera to have been tentatively decided
oa. Questioned on the subject
yesterday. lr. Malcolm ld he bad
-not heard anything from Waahlne;
t0Q " Mr. Ellis, who was In tho city
for the day. relsterinif at the Imperial,
aid he had heard -nothing authentic.
fter inquiring first If the report con
cerning him bad emanated from W aan
lnston. At tha same time the President Is
expected to send to tha Senate for
confirmation the name of another Re
publican to succeed United States Mar
shal Colwell. Who this nominee will
be Is an unknown quantity, but tha
chances favor John B. Coffey, of this
city. Tha third Federal plum available
at thla time, that of Appraiser of Cus
tom, probably will iro to C. V. Johnson
of Corvallis. It Is believed the Preal
eVnt will choose Johnson as successor
to the late General Summers.
F.IIU Cloe to Tart.
Tha probable arpolntment of1 Kills
omes as a decided surprise. While In
Coo cress. Ellis waa a consistent ur
aorter and friend of President Taft.
Am a candidate for Malcolms place
Ellis la believed to have the hearty
Support of Representative Hawley In
dlltloa to the cordial offlcee of tha
President himself. Hawley and Ellis
have been Intimate In their official re
latlona at Washlnarton-
For several days It has been Inti
mated etroncly In political circle that
President Tsft would not Bend to the
fienate the name of either Malcolm or
Colwell for further consideration In
the way of reappointment to offices
they bow hold. In the regular aeaalon
the nominations of thee men for re
appointment were reported upon unfa
vorably by th committees to which
they were referred. Rather than have
th nominations fall of confirmation
by th Senate, the President withdrew
th name o bo In appointee. At th
last minute, the President sent Col
welt's appointment back to the Senate,
but Congress adjourned befor any
notion could be taken. Malcolm, bav
in once bean confirmed, continue to
hold office until hi successor la ap
pointed and qualifies.
Taft May Podge Affront.
Tha President's action was taken by
Colwell and his friends to Indicate that
Taft would make further effort to ob
tain confirmation of Colweir appoint
ment. More recent developments, how
ever, mak It appear that th real pur
pose, of that proceeding by tha Presi
dent was to irlv Col well a recess ap
pointment and permit htm to retain
the office until his successor should be
confirmed at th next session of Con
gress. Th fact ha leaked out that the
President feels that he has discharged
bis obligation to Colwell and that a
further attempt on his part to obtain
confirmation by th Senate of Col
weir appointment would be an affront
to that body In view of Its action of
only a few weeks ago. It comes from
good authority that th President ha
decided not to send th name of Mal
colm and Colwell back to tha Senate.
Thl leave him free to submit other
Coffey After Place;.
In th meantime John R. Coffey ha
been aggressive. H has been gather
ing indorsement from prominent
party leaders and otherwise urging his
candidacy for the Marshalshlp In rase
Colwell Is eliminated. If Colwell
t dropped. It Is understood. Ralph K.
Williams. National committeeman In
this state, who has stood back of Col
well. will 1ve his support and Indorse
ment to Coffey's candidacy. Bourne Is
supposed to remain loyal to J. Frank
Mnnott. his original choice for tho
office. With this exception no other
candidate has been discussed generally
In connection with the appointment.
Hawley ha Insisted on Johnson'
appointment as Appraiser and the indi
cations are that hi wtshea will b
compiled with by tha President. Haw
ley feel grateful to Johnson, who
conducted Hawley" eomnalgn two
veers ago, and Is desirous of rewir.1l.ig
the Benton County man with the flttOJ
Federal Job. National Committeeman
Williams is standing with Hi7 n
advocacy of Johnson's appointment al
though Johnson has been opposed be
cause of alleged Irregular Republican
ism. It Is reported that Bourns will
rot oppose Johnson's appointment.
Tnis attitude by Bourne I admltt'i b
friend of Jay Bowerman. defeated
Republican Gubernatorial candidate.
robab!y to be true, since Johneon. in
th last election. openly supported
'West for Oovernor against th regular
Republican nominee. Bowerman
friends, however, have not relaxed in
their effort to prevent Johnson ap
pointment. They have transferred their
fight against him from th member
of th delegation to the President him
self. rialnt Made to Tft.
Letters and telegram hav been
nt to Taft proteetlng against John
son's appointment on th ground that
hi court In th November election
wa not such a merit reward at th
bands of a Republican administration.
Report that Kills and Johnson and
probably Coffey will be named by th
President for th thre Federal post
In this tal now open to appointment
Is generally taken to Indicate an align
raent between Representatives Hawley
and Lafferty with National Committee
man Wltllama aa the third member.
The object of this supposed compact la
to enabl this trio. If possible, to con
trol th distribution of patronage In
thl state. lafferty' friends, how
ever. Insist that he Is pursuing an In
dependent course at Washington, hav
ing a desir to work In harmony with
the other member of the delea-atlon
without committing himself definitely
to either faction.

Attack on Guard.
SALEM. Or, April 9 (Special.)
Service of auhpena secured by Attor
ney William P. Lord. Jr.. on Superin
tendent Stelner. of the Asylum, and on
Superintendent James. Warden Curtis
and five convicts at the penitentiary,
gives promts of interesting develop
ments when the trial of Thomas
O'Rourk opens tomorrow in the Cir
cuit Court. O'Rourk was indicted for
assaulting Jerry C. Simpson, a guard,
with a knife several months ago. If
convicted of the offense, tho penalty,
under th statute. Is death.
Attorney Lord. who represents
O'Rourke. has been making a sys
tematic Investigation of affairs at the
Penitentiary, and promises aome start
ling developments In the way of testi
mony relative to treatment of prison
er at th Institution. Officials of th
prison hav been aubpenaed and or
dered to bring Into court th records
of th prisoners and of th- punish
ments which hav been meted out to
Former tnard Songht.
An attempt Is being made to find J.
P. McCullough, a former guard, who
was recently discharged because he
criticised th method employed at the
Penitentiary and the administration of
affairs there. Every effort will be
made to find him. as he Intimated there
ar many thing he might telL
lt will b shown that th method
employed In th punishment of pris
oner at th Institution wer of such
nature as to make O'Rourke unsound
In mind. said Attorney Lord today.
-Obviously. I do not wish to divulge
all of th iarges that will b made,
but the record Itself shows that
O'Rourke was sentenced to serve 20
days In hta cell with his hands man
acled to tb bar above hi head, so
that h suffered excruciating agony.
This la th only bad point In th rec
ord against him for Infraction of th
rule, but It la evidence of the unusual
Convicts to Testify.
"Other convicts will give testimony
as to bow prisoner have been treated
and some of this testimony will b In
teresting, Indeed, to the public."
Attorney Lord says that Superintend
ent Stelner has been subpenaed to
how that Ouard Simpson, who waa
attacked by O'Rourk. wa discharged
from the Asylum because of allleged
hard treatment of patients at that in
stitution. This Is the third time that th atat

death penalty Is affixed when a person

two preceding case th Supreme Court
upheld technicalities which acquitted
tha accused convicts of tha charge.
BLAME IS PUT ON
M. G. Munly Declares First
Port of Portland Board
Shows Bad Faith.
MEN'S WAGES WITHHELD
Attorney for Neve Members In Suit
11 led by Predecessors Clildcs
' 4. c. AlnsworUi Particular
lyCommittee to Act.
Bad faith on the part of the old Port
Of Portland Commission, and especially
on the part of one of it members. J. C.
Atnsworth, was charged yesterday by
M. G. Munly, who will serve aa at
torney In defending the new members
of the Commission from being ousted by
the old Commission.
Mr. Munly said yesterday that he con
sidered suit by the old Commission,
after it had been agreed that the new
board would start proceeding as sn
effort to gain favor with the public This,
he said, was msde evident by Mr. Atns
worth. who criticised the new Commis
sion for tho present state of affairs,
which, he said, prevents payment of
wage to employee of the Commission
until action shall be taken to have tha
court decide who ar the legal Com
missioners. Money With Old Board.
The old Commissioners have posses
sion of sll tlie money and property of
th Port." said Mr. Munly. "and I don't
understand how wa ar to blame for tha
men not getting their wages, our Board
mas appointed by the Governor in accsrd
snce with a law passed by the Legisla
ture, and wlwn It asked for possession of
the property, the old Commission re
fused to give It up. Members of the old
Board raid they would carry on the
routine business of the Port until legality
of one et of Commissioners wa estab
lished. If psylng of wages to men they
hired with money In their possession is
not routine bueaness to which they can
attend. I don't know what It Is.
"How Mr. Alnsworth can expect us to
pay th men they hired with money not
In our possession Is a puxxla to me. It
Is simply a play for public favor, this
effort to make It arpear that are de
priving working men of their money."
Committee Stands Expense.
Mr. Munly Is the chairman of tha com
mittee of 0 citizens, which took aa
active Interest In getting the law changed
to provide a new Commission. He ex
plained yeeXerday that the commute
will provide all tha expenses of th
litigation now begun against tha new
District Attorney Cameron, s party to
th suit brought by th old Commission
on account of his official position, said
yesterday that sn effort will be mad to
cxpedlta the suit.
If the attorneys for th new Port of
Portland fils a demurrer to the quo
warranto proceedings of th old Com
mlralon. a hearing will be granted by
th court at an early day. and hearing
on the demurrer will settle the ques
tion aa far as tha lower court Is con
cerned. Th complaint In th case has not been
served on the defendants, but this prob
ably will be don today. TJntll th com
plaint has been served. Mr. Munly said
yesterday. It will not be determined by
th defense whether a' demurrer or an
answer to tho complaint will ba filed.
If an answer Is filed the suit must taks

DECKLOAD CAST OVER SIDE
Steamer Washington, Listed In Riv
er, Cargo Is Sacrificed.
Loss of the deck load of the steamer
Washington waa made necessary for
th vessel's safety late Saturday night,
as th steamer proceeded down th
river, near Mount Coffin, with a cargo
of lumber. The Washington was bound
from Rainier for San Francisco with
lumber for the Richardson Steamship
Company, and when the craft had gone
about four miles It developed such a
heavy list that water poured Into the
galley, and It was necessary to cut the
lashings and let th deckload go by th
Tha Washington had taken on 610.000
feet of lumber at Rainier. It moved
Into the stream about midnight, and
seemed to be lit good condition. In a
little while, however, a list wa noticed
and the tilt became serious ' rapidly.
The vessel was going at a slow rate
of speed or the danger would have
It waa not mad clear In Portland
yesterdaytiow the cargo shifted In such
a way as to cause th list. Repre
sentatives of tha Richardson line went
down th r'ver In the afternoon to direct
th work of balancing tha remainder
of the load on the vessel. A repre
sentative of the underwriters also hur
ried to inspect the vessel and to gather
facts concerning Its plight.
It Is believed that if the Washington
had passed over the bar before devel
oping tha list the vessel would hav
capslsed. It was announced at th of
fice of the Richardson line yesterday
that th Washington would probably
be 'n shape to depart on Its trip to San
KANSAS CITY MAY GO ON RUN
Ilarrlman Line Forced to Care for
Another vessel may ba added to tha
Portland-Ban Francisco run by th
Harri man Interests to aid in caring for
th Increased passenger traffic In and
out of thla port. From San Francisco,
th headquarters for tho Kan Francisco
at Portland Steamship Company, has
com the Information that th steamer
Kansas City may be added to the line
between this city and California porta
at an early date.
Th Kansas City has been lying In
San Francisco harbor sine ah was
taken off th coastwise run laat Fall.
At first tt was believed that the In
crease In traveling was due In th cut
In rates between San Francisco and
Ix Angeles, but aa the business be
tween San Francisco and Portland has
Increased even more rapidly than that
south It Is believed now that th pres
ent conditions simply cons ti tut th
forerunner of a big Summer.
The Rose City, due to sail from San
Francisco yesterday, waa booked to ca
pacity almost a week ahead. . It Is also
reported that th ships of th Pacific
Coast Company sailing between her
and San Francisco ar getting about
as much business as ran be handled
without adding to the fleet.
If the Kansas City Is placed In com
mission again on the Portland route. It
will mean that four vessels, the Beaver.
Rear. Rose City and Kansas City, will
b required to handle th traffic fox
tha company. A year ago. Just before
th Bear and the Beaver were placed
on the line and the route extended from
San Francisco to Los Armeies, the
Kansas City and the Rose City had but
little troubla In providing accommoda
tions for all the passengers between
this city and San Francisco. The addi
tion of the new steamer may be taken
as an evidence of the rapid growth of
th passenger traffic by water into this
port in one year.
The steam schooner F. S. Loop ar
rived early yesterday from San Fran

With two factions organized among
tha subscribers to stock of the defunct
American-Italian Bank, the meeting
scheduled to take place at Swiss Hall
last night was not called to order and
no steps were taken towards the reor
ganization of the Institution as had been
proposed at a previous meeting. Leas
than 20 of the 100 subscribers were
present and with the small number In
appearance It was considered advisable
to let the affairs of the Institution take
F. E. Melvln. sttorney, was present
to submit a proposition to take over the
assets of the bank and reorganize the

the bank now under Indictment for ac
cepting deposits without the bank hav
ing a license to conduct business, had
transferred all the capitalization stock,
books and papers to him. With these

my plans and to give them an opportu
nity to come In on the same basis that
they became Interested In the bank pro
moted by Myers," said Mclvin. "but as
they were not anxious to accept my
proposition. I have decided to go ahead
and place the bank on a, sound basis. It
Is probable that the capitalization will
be Increased from $60,000 to $100,000."
A. B. Ferrea. on of the subscribers,
said that Inasmuch as there was a dif
ference of opinion over the matter, titer
seemed to be no likelihood that an

Slipping quietly back Into the city, the
woman ws ensconced at Third and

thst It would have been but a short time
until she attempted another coup like
her sensational theft of a year ago. She
U held under ball of $250, while her
companion was released on his own rec
ognizance. The woman accomplished tha robbery
of Fritz by engaging him In conversa

tween Lieutenant-Commander Blaln and
Master-at-Arms "Wischusen, as the re
sult of the feud which has existed for
sometime between BkUn and Captain

commanding officer who happens to be
Captain SiTepherd of the Oregon Naval
Since the encounter. In which Wischu
sen was acting solely under instruction
of Captain Shepherd in ejecting Lieu
tenant BluJn. the members of tha re
serves have been devoting their time to
discuesing the lighting abilities of the
lieutenant and the master-at-arms. No
event since tha organization donned the
uniforms of the State militia has aroused
the enlisted men as well as the officers
of the company, like this fistic encounter.
Next Move Now Due.
Since the announcement that Lieutenant
Blain would file charges aeatneit Cap
tain Shepherd for conduct prejudicial to
the service the men have been looking
forward to th next move on the checker
board. Monday or Tuesday, it is said,
Captain Shepherd will hold military
hearings for the purpose of making an
Investigation as to the actual circum

It la contended that statements were
made, end acta performed, which, when
put down (n cold writing, will make in

assumed will be gathered in proper
form and submitted to Adjutant-General
Flnzer, who. In turn, may call for a
Captain Shepherd Reticent.
Captain Shepherd said yesterday it was
not proper for him to comment upon
the affair as he felt that the time had
come when the air should be cleared of
the various charges. He said an In
vestigation might take place. He said he
had no fear of charge being preferred
Among the enlisted men It Is generally
understood that the action of Saturday
was the climax of the Blain-Shepherd
"They have been ready to come to
blows for sometime." said one of the
members of the company. "It only re

"The result is certain to end In a

"This report of the trial, for that is
what it really is, will be forwarded to
the Adjutant-General of the state and
he must take, cognizance of It. Of
course he will Institute court-martial
proceedings for the purpose of investigat

Deputy County Assessor, at the Folic
Station, yesterday, where he deposited

zance, when he drove into the trap at
a rapid gait.
