agreed to put the vessel, which now
plies between California ports and
Portland, on the run. providing the
merchants of the city guarantee a car

"I shall be very much surprised If It
Isn't done." said J. N. Teal, counsel for
the transportation committee, who has
been foremost in the movement,
tosaaslttre Keeerte Favorably.
The subject was broached at a meet
ing of tne Progressive Business Men's
Club January 13 by F. A. Freeman,
and Mr. IxxlKe, who waa present at the
time. outlined arrangements under
which be thought his company would
undertake to establish the line. A
committee from the club waa appointed
to consider the subject further and
Mr. Freeman waa named chairman. The
other members appointed were C F.
Johnson. Phil 8. bates. C 8. Jackson,
C. C. Chapman and James F. Kinder.
At a meeting of the transportation
committee of tifa Chamber of Com
merce Wednesday a favorable report
waa submitted to It by the business
men's committee, which announced that
It would leave further action on the
subject In the hands of the Chamber
'f Commerce. Mr. Small wood was ap
pointed a, special delegate with power
to represent the Chamber In reducing
the project to concrete form.
In a meeting with Mr. Dodge yester
day an agreement was effected where
by the St. Helens would make the run
between Portland and Alaskan ports
three times In the coming Hummer,
railing at Nome, Sol Oman. St. Nicholas
and Taller. According to the agree
ment the first trip la to be made in
April and the last trip In August.
Great Beaeflt Kereeeea.
Whllo the beginning Is not to be
pretentious. It Is regarded as most im
portant by the Chamber of Commerce,
who view It as the commencement of
service that will result In bringing an
Immense trade to Portland. The Cham
ber of Commerce baa been laboring
with this end In view for the past 14
years, and never In all that time has It
been as near realisation of Its ambi
tion as at present.
Members of the Chamber of Com
merce are elated over the offer of Mr.
Dodge, which they retrard as the prac
tical equivalent to the establishment
of the line. The Chamber baa obtained
offers heretofore from steamship com
panies for the establishment of lines,
but in every case the tonnage guaran
tee asked was so high as to be re
garded as prohibitive for a beginning.
Mr. Small wood now Is engaged in col
lecting data with reference to rates
and the arrangement of Incidental de
tails. He will submit these to the ship
pers here as soon as gathered, prepara
tory to asking for the required guar
antee. Seattle Rates te Prevail.
In a few days. Mr. Smallwood said
lat night, he hopes to be able to an
nounce that the guarantee has been
provided. Mr. Dodge assured Mr. Small
wood at the time of the agreement
that the rates charged Portland ship
pers mould be the same as asked at
-With this splendid start." said Mr.
Smallwood. "we ought to be able to
have several steamers on the Alaska
route next year, and establish com
munication with Southeastern Alaska,
Cordova. Valdea and Bering Sea points.
If the operation of one steamer this
year Is successful it will encourage
shippers Into that territory and Instill
hop that they may obtain a large
share of the trade that now goes to
the other points.
"Regarding the 200-ton guarantee
asked. I would say that there is more
than enough freight shipped to Alaska
from Portland by way of Seattle now
to meet this requirement. An Instance
of this is the product of large Eastern
manufacturing firms. These firms
maintain large warehousee In Portland
to which they ship their goods, and
then fill their Alaska orders out of the
stock so shipped, sending the ship
ments to Seattle by rati, and there
loading them aboard vessels. Under
that system Seattle gets the credit of
business that really belongs to Port
land. "There Is a large amount of this
trans-shipment buslnees that Portland
ought to get. Beside this me could
count on big business In the form of
grain shipments from Interior points.
Only last Summer we had offers of a
shipment of 70.000 tons of flour from
the Snake River district to Alaska by
way of this point which we had to re
fuse because of lack of facilities."
An excursion Into Alaska In the in
terests of trade extension now Is being
arranged by the wholesalers and other
business men of Portland.

Electrification of the Fourth-street

the City Council of Hillsboro on the ap
plication for franchise now pending.
At ita meeting Tuesday evening the
Hillsboro Council deferred taking a
final vote on the iubjeet, but consider
able opposition to the measure was ex
pressed. It seems that the street over
which the railroad seeks entrance to
the business district of the city waa
paved recently at considerable expense.
Now the Council wants to assess the
Southern Pacific for the amount it
would have been required to expend for
paving had the franchise been granted
previous to the time the paving was

D. W. Ckmpbell, general superin

the street along the right of way dat

placed, but declarea he cannot pay for
work done before the time that he ap
plied for the franchise.
"1 have the appropriation for this
work and am ready to proceed with It

ever, for the Hillsboro paving, and I
don't think the Southern Paclilc direc

tent evidence. He Insisted on a ruling
by the court on this question of law.
"This Is no time to settle the law
as to the Introduction of testimony,
retorted Mr. Fitxgerald. "Rulings on
questions of law should be made by the
court only when the disputed evidence
Is offered. The court should not cross
a bridge until it is reached. If we
are going to have a ruling on this
point, we might Just as well dismiss
the Jury for two or three days and
thrash out all law points in the case
before we proceed further."
Judge Kavanaugh' announced that he
had understood the representative of
the District Attorney's office at the be
ginning of the case to say that the
plea of guilty by Morris would not be
competent evidence against Wilde.
"1 had assumed that this feature of
the case bad been decided and that it
was understood by counsel on both
sides," continued the court. ' "I say
frankly that any confession by Morris
would not be evidence against Wllde.
Slnce this is the only ruling I ever
could make on this point, it is Just as
well that I settle it right here. The
ruling I have made is identical to that
I bad resolved to include in my Instruc
tions to the Jury on this point." .
After admitting that the omy infor
mation he had concerning the affairs
of the Oregon Trust & Savings Bank
and the pending trial of Wilde was
what he had read in the newspapers,
C D. Ramsdell. contracting carpenter,
was passed for cause by both sides.
With the acceptance of Ramsdell, the
12 chairs in the Jury box were filled
with tentative Jurors. Judge Kava
naugh promptly announced that the
court would entertain a peremptory
challenge by the defense. Mr. Malarkey
announced the name of Mr. Haertleln,
who was excused.
D. J. Zaa First Taleenaaa.
The next name drawn by Court Clerk
Fields was that of Dora J. Zan, presi
dent of Zan Bros., Incorporated, resid
ing at mi Franklin street. The ex
amination of Mr. Zan was thorough on
the part of Mr. Malarkey, but only a
few interrogatories were required by
Mr. Fitzgerald when Mr. Zan disquali
fied himself by making the declaration
that he would not believe W. Cooper
Morris "under any circumstances and
would disregard his evidence altogether
even though it were corroborated by
Pressed by Mr. Malarkey to give the
reason of his complete distrust of
Morris' veracity, Mr. Zan said It was
due to information he had learned con
cerning the record of Morris prior to
the time he became Identified with the
suspended bank, coupled with hia rec
ord since the failure of that Institution,
Including the fact that Morris is serv
ing a penitentiary sentence under a
former conviction. Counsel ror tne ao
fense did not resist the challenge for
cause preferred by the prosecution and
Mr. Zan waa excused.
Carpenter Is Called.
The next talesman called was S. C.
Baker, for It years employed as car
penter In the Southern Pacific carshops.
and residing at 867 East Flanders.
Counsel for the defense had Just fin
ished questioning Baker when court
adjourned. He will be examined this
morning by the prosecution, and the
Indications are that he will be passed
Mr. Baker said he had no impression
as to whether any crime had been
committed in connection with the de
funct bank and did not have an opinion
as to the guilt or innocence of either
Morris or Wilde. H. said he would
ecrutinize ftie testimony of Morris
more closely than that of any other
witness, and would be disposed to dis
credit anything Morris might testify
unless it was supported by corrobora
tive evidence. Questioned by Mr.
Malarkey if the fact that a man had
been indicted would prejudice the
Juror's mind against him in the sub
sequent trial of the case. Baker an
swered negatively, and added that he
"had no faith in grand Juries, any
way." Malarkey and Clark. Mix.
The concluding 15 mintues of the
day's session were enlivened somewhat
by a blustery bombardment of words
between Mr. Malarkey .and Special
Prosecutor Clark regarding the P08se
slon of certain exhibits presumed to be
pertinent to the cause on trial. The
wordy fusillade resulted In no serious
Injury to either of the combatants, and
the average spectator left the court
room wondering what it was all about.
Mr. Clark had announced that tne
prosecution had Just received a consid
erable amount of correspondence relat
ing to the pending trial that heretofore
had been unobtainable by reason of
the fact that it is in Washington. He
informed opposing counsel that the
state would undertake to have copies
of such communications as it would
use in the case made and delivered to
the defense today, if possible. At the
same time he said other documents in
the nature of bonds were not in the
possession of the prosecution because
they were sealed up along with other
records of the bank and stored in the
Merchants National Bank.
Mr. Malarkey renewed his demand
that the prosecution furnish counsel for
the defense with copies ef the exchange
records of the Oregon Trust & Savings
Bank from May 16, 1907, until the time
of its suspension late 1n August of that
year. He charged that a thorough
search by representatives of the de
fense among the records of the bank
for these exhibits had proved futile,
and he demanded that Mr. Clark, as
special prosecutor in the absence of Re
ceiver Devlin, should be required to
produce the desired records, which had
been requested by the defense some
Prosecution Bonds Witness.
Replying, Mr. Clark declared he did
not know where the exchange records
of the bank were, since he had not as
sisted to pack the bank records, which
are stored in several large drygooda
boxes in the Commercial building, at
Second and Washington streets. The
special prosecutor, however, volun
teered to the defense the services of
Adolph Schultz, a former bookkeeper
for the defunct bank, who was ac
quainted with the records and might
possibly be able to And the papers de
sired. Mr. Clark denied that delivery
by the prosecution of these exhibits
was oovered in the order that had been
made by Presiding Judge Gatens direct
ing the state to supply the defense with
copies of all records and other docu
mentary evidence touching en the af
fairs of the bank that will be used in
prosecuting the charge of embezzlement
against Mr. Wilde.
The engagement amounted te nothing
more than a draw, neither side gaining
any advantage, and it was In that shape
that the controversy terminated.
The prosecution has caused one of Its
witnesses, Frank H. Stow, to be placed
under 15000 bonds to Insure his appear
ance at the trial. Stow was connected
with the Union Construction Company,
and in that way was associated with
Wilde In the sale of telephone bonds.
Stow was largely Instrumental in
bringing about the Indictment of Wilde.

LIFE INSURANCE COMPANIES
They Are Closely Observing Public
An examining physician for one of
the prominent Life Insurance Com
panies, In an interview on the subjec't,
made the astonishing statement that
the reason why so many applicants for
insurance are rejected Is because kid
ney trouLle Is so common to the
American people, and the large major
ity of applicants do not even suspect
that they have the disease.
He states that Judging from his own
experience and reports from druggists
who are constantly in direct touch with
the public there is one preparation
that has probably been more successful
in relieving and curing these diseases
than any remedy known. The mild
and healing Influence of Dr. Kilmer's
