TRACKAGE TO BE UTILIZED
One Section of Tliat Purchased Be

South of Oswego Becomes
Important Iink in Road.
In carrying out Its scheme for the
electrification of the Willamette Valley
and the establishment of a suburban
service of the utmost Importance to
Portland business interests, the Port
land. Eucene & Eastern Railway com
nanv yesterday purchased from the
Portland. Railway. Light & Power
Comoanv the nine mile stretch of rail
wav track known as the Willamette
Falls Railway, and in part will utilize
the old road as a portion or tne new
main line from Portland to balem.
The consideration was not stated,
but it is said that the price was apr
The section of track purchased by
the Portland, Eugene & Eastern begins
at the river docks about one mile
south of Oswego and terminates about
the same distance south of the village
of Willamette Falls. It also becomes
an important link in the big electrical
system because of the industrial spurs
which are to be maintained for sup
plying materials to the pulp mills at
Road Dors Log Work.
I,ons are now rafted to the river
docks south of Oswego, where they are
pulled from the water and entrained
for delivery at the mills. The Port
land. Eugene & Eastern assumes the
lun rontracts now In existence for
the carrying of these materials.
It Is said that one of the reasons
which Influenced the officers of the
Portland, Eugene & Eastern in making
the purchase was consideration tor
the property of the Academy of the
Sisters of "the Holy Names and the
owners of the Glenmorrie residence
..district. Because of avoiding the hilly
and dangerous district to the west the
Tortland, Eugene.. Eastern holds to a
water grade from Portland to Oregon
The road had surveyed a route that
naralleled the Willamette Falls Kail
way and bisected both properties with
two sets of railroad tracks. Through
the purchase of yesterday the resi
dents of that district secure- the ad
vantages of an excellent interurban
service without sustaining any damage
Work Won't Unit by Rain.
Contracts are now being let by R.
T. Ouppy, chief engineer, for a large
portion of the main line grade be
tween Portland and Salem, and it Is
expected that the work will be prose
cuted during the entire rainy season.
Twenty miles of the north end of the
grade are to be constructed for a
double track system which is intended
to -afford facilities for all Interurban
trains to reach Portland on time by
avoiding congestion after the various
roads through the valley deliver their
trains to the main line. Trains from
the Molalla Valley, and Willamette
Valley points south of Salem and Dal
las will come to Portland over this
route, while the old Yamhill" and
"West Side" roads will carry trains
from Prry. McMinnvllle. Newberg,
Forest tSrove and llillsboro.
The Willamette Falls Railway which
built the rond In 1S91 was a subsidiary
company of the Portland General Elec
tric. It was intended to develop the
town of Willamette Falls, where many
of the workmen from the pulp mills
made their homes, but of late years
tias been engaged in carrying innumer
able cords of wood to the mills. The
wood was loaded on the Tualatin River,
south of Willamette Falls, and on ar
riving at Oregon City was slid over
the canal "and locks on an aereal cable.

CITY MAY BE AFFECTED
w g-Boor Law May Treble Cost of
Running fire Department.
Opinions expressed by lawyers that
the eight-hour contract labor law
adopted by the people of tha state at
the general election applies to all city,
county and state employes caused
Mayor Rushlight yesterday to request
City Attorney Grant to make a thor
ough investigation to determine
whether or not the measure could be
made to apply to the fire and police
departments of the city. Attorney
Grant gave an opinion offhand to the
effect that the measure applies oniy
to employes of contractors doing work
for the city, state or county. He sent
to Salem for a copy of the measure
adopted and will investigate as soon as
If tha law applies to the fire depart
ment the city will be placed In a posi
Hon where It will be necessary either to
enlarge the department to three times
Its present size and increase the cost
of maintenance to three times the pres
ent amount, cut the present force into
three shifts and have an entirely In
adequate department. The same condi
tions would apply to the police depart
ment, where men would have to be paid
for an extra day's work each week ana
given doubts pay for overtime.
Mayor Rushlight said he had figured
up the cost of the fire department un
der the new arrangement and found
the amount to be $950,000 a year, or
three times the present figures. It
would require a tax levy of 3!4 mills,
in addition to the present levy of 2

or more than three-fourths of the en
tire amount of taxes now being received
in the city.
It was the opinion of City Attorney
Grant yesterday that the law cannot be
made to affect the fire department
"While I have not investigated the
measure, it Is my opinion," he said
that it applies only to persons em
ployed, by contractors doing public
work under contract. That, nowever,
is only an Informal opinion."
ETHEL JONES AT HOME
POKTLAXD GIRL AT HEILIG IS
Miss Von Waldron Tells of Work,
but Her Chief Concern Is for
Old Friends Here.
Breathless from beginning to end was
thla Interview with Miss Ethel Von
Waldron, alias Polly Hope, in the great
Western play. The Round-Up. at the
Hellig. and In true life Miss Ethel
Jones, daughter of George F. Jones,
for many years connected with The
Oregonian. Imagine a strikingly pretty
brunette with true Oregon eyes nurs-
ng a child the Image of herself, try-
nr to stroke a DiacK amen wna one
hand, to put a doll to sleep with the
other, to watch for her call and to
delude herself Into the idea that she
really looked like a staid aunt.
That was the difficulty that beset
he interview. Miss Jones would refer
the aunt idea, but in Detween inose
remarks it was possible to get some
nforraatlon from her. the only addi
tional trouble being that her niece did
not like the "Injuns."
Starting here with the Baker stock,
nd. bv the way. Miss Jones is hoping
that her first manager will come round
and call on her. this Portland dramatic
star went to Los Angeles to play stock.
t was while she was taking a part In
'The Arab" that H. B. Harris saw her.
and took her East to take a part In
the same plajr with Edgar Selwyn and
Took a fly with Rose Coghlan In
vaudeville next at Hammerstein's: aw
fully easy, only 15 minutes, simply
grand; then several more stocks and
all In the space of four years, and now
back to Portland." So the story rushed
along, the narrator stopping every mo
ment to comfort the niece, who feared
all the "Injuns" would come in. One did
put his face In the door and for one
moment the fate of the whole play
hung in the balance, for Miss Jones
niece was, to say the least, somewhat
startled. True Western blood came
to the rescue and the play was allowed
to proceed, and the little lass returned
p a discussion with her doll which
"auntie had glved" her.
In the few spare moments that fall
to her lot Miss Jonea is trying to meet
all her friends, the boys and girls she
used to know, "but I haven't seen half
of them, and I do so want to, you
know. Then, too, I've Just had time to
see one or two of the huge buildings.
Hasn't It grown? I can hardly believe
it. Dr. and Mrs. Charles C. Stolte,
too, whose guest I have been, have
taken me out and here ara I trying
to keep slim and I'm getting six Ore
gon meals a day, tmnk of that and
Few actresses have done more start
ling or daring things than this Port
land girl. Ninety miles on a racing
track with Barney Oldfleld, and driv
ing an engine out of Sacramento were
mere nothings, but although a West
erner she "fell down once." That was
when in connection with one play she
was told 'I suppose being a Westerner
you can ride?' Rather than lose my
Job I said haughtily, "DIu you ever know
one that couldn't?' But when I saw
prancing, bucking ponies on the stage,
my heart failed me, and I've been
learning ever since."
Then the interview became so mixed
up, what with the cat and the doll and
the "Injuns" and everything that Grace
Benham had to come and help to nurse
some of the things, while Miss Jones
told of her delight at being back In
her home town and how she wanted to
stop "loads and loads of weeks longer."
Children's Marriage Annulled.
Because the groom was under age at
the time of the marriage. Circuit Judge
Morrow yesterday annulled the mar
riage of August and Lillian Becker.
They were married at Vancouver, Octo.
ber 12, 1910, at which time young
Becker was only 18 years of age. He

people had been separated within a few
days of taking the vows. Other dU

Question of Cooking and Din-ing-Room
UNION DEMANDS INCREASE
El? Boat Capable of, Carrying 100
Passengers May Go Sonth Wlth
jout Any Sympatlietic Strike
Is Considered Possible.
Vessel owners and passenger agents
are interested in the outcome of a con
troversy between Swayne & Hoyt, oper
ating the new steamer Camino, and the
Cooks' and Waiters' Union, the former
contending that tbey should employ but
three cooks on the vessel as she car
ries about 100 passengers and the usual
crew, while the union Is said to hold
that as the Camino is in the steamship
class, not being a steam schooner as
are other independent vessels, she must
have a complement of four cooks and
two waiters more than are now car
Such an arrangement, it is averred,
would compel her owners' to have as
many In the culinary department as are
carried on the Bear, Beaver and Rose
City, of the San Francisco & Portland
fleet, and the Geo. W. Elder and Konn-
oke, of the North Pacific line. There
is to be a meeting at San Francisco
today between representatives of the
union and of the Shipowners' Associa
tion, and if an understanding is ar
rived at the Camino will carry pas
sengers south: otherwise it is expected
she will go without a single traveler.
Should the owners decline to abide
by the ukase of tour cooks, the union
men assert that they could bring about
sympathetic pressure from the en
glneers, firemen and sailors, to say
nothing of the waiters, if any attempt
is made to carry the lull list ot pas
sengers or employ non-union chefs.
Meanwhile no tickets are being sold
though there Is a strong demand for ac
commodations, and many are anxiously
awaiting word,' expected today, that
the difference has been adjusted.
