HOQl'I AM. Wash.. March 19. (Spe

W.-Greek strike wcro transferred from
Hoquiam to Aberdeen today and to
night found six of the largest mills
of Grays Harbor shut down. The op
erators of moht of them announced
the close was fdr an indefinite time.
The list of-mills includes two in

(Ly tie's), and In Aberdeen the Slude.
Federal. American and Anderson &
Though no formal statement has
been Issued by the mill owners, sev
eral of them have said they have only
one rour.-e on n and that Is to allow
the plants to remain closed. The own
ers, it is said, have made no agreement
among themselves as to a policy for
fighting the striken) and ay they do
not Intend to fight them. One promi
nent operator said tonlplit that his
mill would remain closed fur an indefi
nite period.
a Iniaorfallow l.lkely.
"We cannot afford to attempt to
brlns men in from the outside," thl.s
man declared, "as the condition of the
lumber business Is such that it makes
little difference to us whether our mill
runs or not. If the men strike. It
simply leaves it up to us to close down.
We are not making any money and are
about as well off closed as -running.
The Northwestern mill did not re
sume operations this morning as a re
sult of the strike n"5w on. It had been
running Its box factory and planing
mill since the strike was first culled
last Thursday. The l.ylle mill did nut
btnrt yesterday.
In Aberdeen, tho Slade mill started
up. but only to clean up a part of a
day s run. and closed down before noon.
The strike In tho Amei lean mill took
place shortly before noon and at tlie
Federal mill this afternoon. Th An
derson and Wlddleton strike occurred
Just at ! o'clock today, an hour before
quitting time. In nil thero probably
are 70 men out In Aberdeen and halt
that mini her in Hoquiam.
Greek Labor Itarred.
Numerous meetings are being held
by the strikers and tho Itinerant 1. W.
W. leaders. Tho mill operators have
i declared that hereafter thoy will not
employ Greek labor and today the
strike loaders declared the men would
not return to work unless the Greeks
were also given places.
Today ono of the I. W. W. organizers
tas called tefore a committee of cltl
zetiK, who sought to know what the
strikers are demanding, but little was
accomplished. and members of the
committee, said they did not learn the
strikers wishes. A conference was
held this afternoon by a delegation of
19 of the strikers with the city com
mission, relative to tho opening of a
free municipal employment agency au
thorized ewterdny. The strikers op
posed it. fearing men would be brought

the livestock Industry in the Northwest
Is expected to receive Its greatest
Lively Foresees shortage Go.
"It will take a long time for us to
overcome tho shortage In our present
livestock production." said D. O. Live
ly, after looking over the crowd yes
terday, "but with the' people of Fort
lnnd displaying this Interest in the
work I believe it can be done."
At every opportunity Mr. Lively topk
occasion to express tho present live
stock situation in terms of dollars and
cents, which Is the most forceful way
of emphasizing to the people of the
Northwest that they arc neglecting
what it Is possible to develop Into their
greatest revenue-producing Industry.
Tlie fact that the Union SIcat Com
pany alone sent $800,000 into the Mid
dle West last year for hogs and that
the entire Northwest paid $17,000,000
last year for livestock brought In from
the Missouri and Mississippi Valleys,
could not be repeated too often. These
statements, frequently seiterated. did
not fall to Impress many Portland peo
ple who previously have been In seem
ing Ignorance of the tact that this por
tion of the ( lilted States does not pro
duce near all the meat it consumes.
Mit-ket Here Always Present.
Mr. Lively contends that the market
for livestock always will be present.
The cities of the Northwest are grow
ing and with their growth the demand
for meat products will Increase pro
portionately. He declares that Port
land tliould be exporting finished meat
products from stock grown In the
Northwest instead of eating meat that
Is shipped In here from Kansas and
Nebraska. South America, Alaska and
the Orient are legitimate markets for
the packing-house products of Port
land and as soon as the farmers in
this territory grow enough stock first
to supply the home market the pack
ers here will reach out for that trade,
they say. The value of such an Indus
try to Portland, Mr. Lively says. Is ap
parent as to be obvious.
Not only did the Icw1ston and other
Inland Kmplre people attend the show
In a body, l ut other solid organizations
were present In force. Vancouver,
Wash., sent a party of 500. which In
dustriously advertised the Clark Coun
ty Fair. Tlie Kast Side Business men.
headed by the Washington High School
hand, had a big delegation. The Port
land Horse Owners' Association at
tended in special cars, the Credit Men
and the notary Club were out In force.
The Progressive Business Men's Club
acted as an escort to the Inland Km
pjre party.
Aa compared with shows held In
other stock centers of the United States
that now in progress here is said to
be equal to any of them, especially
when the fart, that this Is only tha
second attempt. Is considered. " The
great Chicago show had only 16 I-year-old
stoers on exhibition this year, while
the Portland show has 15., The num
ber or yearlings is 13 at each place.
The aim at these shows Is not so
much to develop a certain breed of
stock but to bring out the strongest
type of each particular breed. Al-
though the Hereford cattle seem to
have the preference here, stockmen say
that Shorthorn or Aberdeen-Angus
stock of the proper type will do Just
as well. It has been demonstrated that
tho most profitable type of hogs,
whether black, white or red. are those
ranging in weight from 175 to 22.
pounds. Mutton stock should be light
weight, but fat. It has been proved.

Dillon's Men Have Good Workont

LOS ANGELES. Cal.', March 19. (Spe
ciaL) Nothing to it today at tho Occi
dental campus. The Occidental College
boys had no more chance today with
the Angels than they would have try
ing to beat J. Plerpont Morgan out. of
6 cents. The'y could not even hit Dil
lon's tryout pitcher, Gober. Ho let up
on his curves in the third inning, other
wise the collegians would probably have
been shut out.
Altogether the kids had a hard sled
ding, but they put up a fine field game
with the exception of their shortstop.
Allen was on the mound for tho Occi
dental team, while Levercnz and Gober
did the twirling for the Angels.
The game was an excellent workout
for Dillon's men, but there was nothing
erclting about It excepting a grand
stand catch by Bishop In left In the
seventh inning. The score stood 8 to 1.

dAKLANP. Cal.. March 19. (Spe
cial.) The Oaks had the scare of their
lives today. Bud Sharpe brought his
men In from Livermore to play the
University of California and the col
legians were so strong that the final
score was only S to 2 against them.
In fact, but for tho nervousness of the
blue and gold and the two hits of Bert
Cocy, there Is no telling what might
have happened, as the Oaks could not
seem to hit the ball and only got six bin
gles off Forker, the California twirler.
Left-hander rikin and Martlnonl
pitched for the Commuters, the former
working four Innings and allowing but
one lilt. Martlnonl struck out the
first six men who faced Mm and then
allowed a single and a double, which,
with the squeeze play, gave California
two runs. Judging from comment,
the Oakland fans do not think so much
of their club after today's spectacle.

trade from Los Angeles for Pitcher
