which have operated from Portland to

steamer Inland Empire. operating

as soon as she delivers freight trans
ferred from the Teal.
Lack of support is the principal rea
son assigned, which of course means
that Portland business men who have
aided the line, not alone turougn
patronage but with generous financial
contributions, have tired of digging
into their st rone boxes longer. For
about seven years the service has been
given out of Portland and In the face
of keen competition from the Hill in
terests through the operation of the
steamers of The Dalles. Portland e
Astoria Navigation Company, it has
been held up with promises of patron
age and the belief that ultimately the
inland growers and mercantile houses
realize the benefits to be de
rived from steamer competition and
the material opposition to the rail
Rail Rate Forced Dowa.
J. N. Teal, of this city, was the main
factor in the project from Its incep-
tinn and lie has been associated wnn
prominent wholesalers who purchased
stock, which is of little value save for
what will be realized rrom me aispo
it!on nf nropertv on hand, but they
alsn contributed toward the losses and
besides routing their own freight
worked to have others divert what was
nosslhle to the steamers.
The management of the Open River
line has succeeded In forcing aown ran
rates and given the Inland Empire the
cheapest transportation It has known.
From Portland the steamer J. N. Teal
operates every other day and connects
with the Inland -Empire, while during
the busy season and water conditions
permitted the steamer Twin Cities was
in service east of cemo.
For the next month it is believed
that business will be heavy because
so many will rush goods by the water
route to take advantage of low rates.
Circulars will be Issued today to ship
pers acquainting them with the situa
tion and It is also expected that a
formal statement will be given out by
the directors, setting forth their views
of the forced withdrawal.
Support la Larklua-.
Recently the stockholders met and
the facts were laid before them and it
was agreed that everything would be
done to carry the service along, but
the result is explained by one Inter
ested in saying that the "line has not
received the business support that
might properly be expected from those
who have been most benefited by the
remedial effect of water competition in
lowering freight rates."
The steamer Tahoma went on the run
early this season and her owners say
that so long as she is given the
patronage whiclf has been enjoyed so
far she will continue in service. The
steamers Dalles City and Bailey-Gatx-ert,
of the Hill fleet, will remain on
the run as in the past, though one
will be withdrawn during the worst
of the Winter season when business Is
slack and weather conditions inter
fere. PLEIADES MAY NEVER FLOAT
Lumber Cargo Is Jettisoned but Big
Steamer Remains Fast.
Advices from San Lazaro. on the
Xajwer California coast, do not indi
cate that the steamer Pleiades, which
went ashore there a few days ago,
sustained severe damage, yet marin
ers are inclined to the belief that she
cannot be floated. A few years ago
the Sesostris, of the Kosmos line,
went ashore on the west coast, bound
irom Hamburg to Puget Sound, and
she remains there today on an even
fceel.. but all efforts to float her
The Pleiades lies broadside on the
sand and she is said to be making a
ied that may be her last resting
place, though the steamer Greenwood,
wrecker, has reached the scene and
nhould begin operations at once. Her
deckload of 800,000 feet of lumber has
been Jettisoned and lies along the
teach and it is supposed that the
work of lightering her heavy cargo
In the hold will be undertaken. The
vessel went 'ashore during an unusu
ally dark night and It is figured that
she was carried there by strong inset
currents that prevail in the vicinity.

tion in maritime functions inasmuch
as he announces thajt the launching of
the steamer Grahamona. at Supple s

ORIENTAL EXPORTS HEAVY
Portland Handicapped While Paget
Sound Enjoys Prosperity.
Portland has prospects for a partial
service to the Orient until the open
ing of the new year, but it amounts
to about one steamer a month. This Is
less than has been enjoyed since the
Portland & Asiatic had sole control of
the field, for with the advent of the
Waterhouse ships and after the lat
ter line took over the Portland &
Asiatic, the service was one ship ev
ery days or more. Yet from Pua-et
Sound comes word that agents of
fleets running from there across the
Pacific, unite in the assertion that the
carsro business to China, Japan ana
Manila.' will break all records during
the 1912-13 season.
Tt is said that some of the lines
have accepted engagements that mean
no space will be available until Feb
ruary and for that reason It Is thought
that traitiD steamers will De engagea
to transport the overflow. Two liners
are loading there to capacity and two
others are due to take out full car
goes. A strong feature of the situ
ation is that steamer owners and op
erators are reaping big benefits be
cause rates are stiff and in keeping
with the demand for facilities, yet it
Is reported that the Awa Maru is ac
cepting wheat and flour at least 1
below the rates of other lines because,
during a lull early In the year, con
tracts were accepted on that basis.
The vessel left the North this week
with 5300 tons of wheat" and other
vessels of the Nippon Yusen Kalsha
will carry stuff under the cheap con
tracts for at least six months longer.

Julius Meier Says That With Per
feet Road From Ice-Bound Mount
. Hood Along Columbia to Sea
Millions Would Come.
Getting plana afoot for the last link
in a great Columbia River highway,
which shall be advertised to the world
as the peer of all other scenic drives
to be found along the shores of the
Pacific, a g&oup of Portland business
men and memDers of tne roruano.
Automobile Club, are prepared for the
bir excursion to Gearhart Park Sun
day morning, when the Lower Colum
bla Boulevard Association is to be
formed. Julius L. Meier. who has
fathered the movement for a fine
highway between Portland and the
sea. says assurances have been re
ceived of a large gathering Monday
morning, when the meeting is called to
"This Columbia River road plan is
the greatest thing which has been
put before the people of this city and
adjacent country." said Mr. Meier yes
terday. "We wholly fail to appro
elate what an asset it would be to
have a superb drive along the river,
from beyond the Cascade gorges, to
the sea, with a branch running out
to Mount Hood, and Portland the
radial center. A road from Portland
to Mount Hood is a great idea, which
the people of this city will surely
build, and will later erect a monument
to the name of the man who has
dinned it into our ears. But the idea
should broaden. We want a boulevard
along the Columbia River to the sea.
fK should tap all the scenic treasure
houses of this region. It would open
a prospect which no other highway of
the American continent can rival. For
this trip alone, we would have thou
sands of tourists come in time. It
would become a conspicuous item in
Crater Lake Advertising Point.
"Within two or three years you will
see that Crater Lake, in Southern Or
egon, is on the advertising list of ev
erv transcontinental railway. It will
be shown to millions of people in book
lets, on posters and cards. This will
come because the Government Is to
build a road system opening the tract
to convenient access, so that automo
billsts and other vehicles may reach
the lake throughout the open season.
Good roads will not make Crater
Lake, but they will make It an asset
for the state of Oregon.
"All that can be said for the de
velopment of Crater Lake is possible
for the Columbia and Mount wood, u
we get at the task of building roads.
In addition to setting Mount Hood
aside as a National Park, we must
have it opened to travel. An then we
must, at the same time, press the
work of constructing a splendid boule
vard through the gorges of the Cas
cades, down the stream to Portland,
and thence following the Columbia to
the sea. Every dollar- we put into
this work will bring Into the state
and city a hundred. It will result in
placing on all railway advertising lit
erature the name of Oregon in a new
form. Then you will hear of the two
exeat attractions of this region being
the Columbia River route with. Mount
Hood, and Crater Lake.
Aauset Is Great.
"Our asset In river and mountain is
trreater than Mount Rainier. We have
the snow and Ice. the crevasse and
loftv Deak. the possibilities of unlim
Ited mountain development, and along
side it we can build a nignway on
which the automobile owner will put
his machine for the delightful run
through the rugged gorges down to
Portland, and thence to the sea. Hud
son River has no such scenery as this.
There Is game and fishing at either
hand. From a perpetual snowfield to
heautlful. pure river, tnrougn a
crroat citv and to the seaside within
a few hours, is a combination of driv
Ina- which no other land affords, it is
nnrs when we open the roads.'
President W. J. Clemens is doing his
best to have the entire Automoone
ninh loin the excursion on the Astoria
& Columbia River Railway, leaving
hum Sundav morning or evening. Both
he and Mr. Meier are urging scores of
prominent business men to join , the
party, and take a hand in forming the
new association. The meeting is to be
held Monday morning at Gearhart,
with many of the most active business
interests of the lower Columbia in at
tendance, and all the county officials

Cameron, and he will be assisted by
Henry St. RaynerT M. L. Pipes also
probably will be secured to assist
them. Mr. Esterly had not determined
last night whom he would secure to
handle his side of the case.
"We will not attempt to take charge
of it ourselves." he said. "We've got
about all the work we can handle in
the regular line of official duty, and I
will confine myself to that and call
upon someone else to take charge of
the Cameron case."
Deputies Are Named.
Mr. Esterly yesterday appointed four
deputies Loyal H. McCarthy, A. A.
Jayne, W. S. Asher and E. R. Rlngo.
Judge Morrow recognized without
hesitation both Mr. Esterly and his
deputies, making it plain, however,
that this ruling was not final, and that
Mr. Esterly was recognized for the
present because no question had as yet
been raised as to the legality of his ap
pointment. Judge Morrow will not be in the city
this morning, and the contest from
Mr. Cameron's office will be brought
before Judge McGinn in its first stage

The cases referred to are the Hazel

An unusual sensation was created
yesterday afternoon when the rumor
spread about the city that Municipal
Judge Tazwell had been ousted from
his place by order1 of the Governor and
that Mayor Rushlight would imme
diately appoint his successor. Scarcely
had the rumor gained currency, how
ever, before it met with flat denials,
both from Judge Tazwell and from
Governor West. Judge Tazwell de
clared there was no foundation what
ever to the report.
"I did not .take any action to oust
Mr. Tazwell," said Governor West last
night, "nor do I contemplate any such
action. In fact, I have no information
at hand that would lead me to believe
that such action is necessary."
Conference Is Held.
Governor West, however, admitted
last night that they had conferred yes
terday and that one of the subjects
under consideration had been the pos
sible appointment of someone to oc
cupy the municipal bench in case Mr.
Tazwell should leave the city at this
time on a vacation.
Rumors apparently coming from
authoritative sources last night, how
ever, persisted in predicting the resig
nation of Judge Tazwell to be offered
today or in the near future. In case
either of resignation or of departure
of the Municipal Judge on leave of
absence for a vacation, the appoint
ment of the man who will hold the
municipal bench will rest with Mayor
Rushlight. Governor West intimated
last night that in case of such ap
pointment he might recommend some
one to the Mayor for selection, al
though he had not considered anyone
at the present time.
The situation between the Governor
and the Sheriff's office remains much
the same as it has been tor tne past
Word Rejects Appointment.
Tom Word yesterday sent the Gov
ernor a letter in whicn ne aeiinneiy
declined to accept appointment as
special agent for the state to make
arrests and gather evidence in the
proposed cleanup campaign.
"I have gone into tne matter pretty
thoroughly with my legal advisers,
said Mr. Word, "and have been told
that there is grave question as to
whether I would have authority to
make arrests. I have therefore de.
clined this appointment because my
hands would be tied in this way and
I would be unable to do effective work.
When, as Sheriff of the county,
made raids on vice resorts, suits for
damages amounting to upward of
,100,000, were filed against me. At
the time my official position made it

cannot afford to take.
"I am heartily in sympathy with
any- movement to arrest vice in Port
land, however, and am willing to co
operate in every way in which I can
be of real service.
IVest Yet Undecided,
Personally I like Sheriff Stevens
and I have absolutely nothing against
him. If. at the election, the people
feel that they want me In the office.
with the authority to act then given
me, I certainly shall be ready to pros
ecute as vigorous a campaign as any
one could desire."
Governor West had made no decision
last nisrht as to whom he might yet
appoint to act In the position he had
offered to Mr. Word. He indicated
that he would not press the appoint
ment upon W. H. Fitzgerald, as he
suggested earlier in the week, and said
that he might npt-maKe any appoint
ment for several days.
The Governor dispatched to biienrc
Stevens yesterday "Letter No. 3, de

Irnnwn am the "Country Club." is oper

This letter contains the first definite
direction that the Governor has issued
to Sheriff Stevens since the opening or.
hia campaign in Portlana. .eesiaes
an open statement of his intention to
continue administering tne iaw in. ac
cordance with his oath of office and a
declaration of his willingness to co

I have received no communication
whatever from Mr. Stevens," said the
Governor last night. "I do not know
what he will do in this matter I have
nninted out to him. I shall not take any
active steps with regard to the Sheriff's
office at the present time, n ne ig
nores my letters to him they will be
placed on file and steps be taken at a

by the Governor in his letter to Sheriff
Stevens yesterday, was closed about a
week ago by order of tne suerin; ana
District Attorney and has remained
closed since that time. The manager
last night announced his intention of

which he says he has conducted in a
lawful and orderly manner.
