ship and Hard Work, "With Taxes
Steadily Climbing, to Build
XTp Profitable Industry.
To protest against the enactment of
a bill Introduced before the Legislature
by Senator Dan Ke 11a her, having: for
Its object the acquisition by the state
of land situated below high water
mark, a number of waterfront property
owners will go to Salem today to ap
pear before a committee to which the
bill has been referred to urge an ad
verse report. Among; those expected
to be members of the party are Joseph
Supple, C. F. Swlgert. Captain. F. B.
Jones, Daniel Kern. Joseph Pacquet,
William Re id. Samuel B. Kobb and
Mr. Supple made the following state
ment of bis views on the proposed leg
islation yesterday; . .
JDefesoie la Made.
As X mm an owner of waterfront prop
erty. X hav been deeply Interested in the
newspaper discussion which has arisen re
latins to the riparian rlg-hts. 1 have noticed
that certain active agitators have advanced
the theory that the waterfront owner has
no riparian rights, and that the state or
the city should step In and seize all lands
on the waterfront which He below high
water mark. This has been Interesting, but
has not affected the rights under discus
sion. I am Informed that there has been
Introduced before the Legislature, by Dan
Kellaher, a bill prepared under the direc
tion of J. B. Zfegler, which. If It becomes
a law. will dispossess the waterfront own
ers of their title to the greater part of an
area which they have held for years In un
disputed ownership. It Is time then to con
sider th effect such a drastic and un
just law would have upon me and other
owners of riverfront property.
Nearly JO years ago 2 established a boat
building enterprise on a vacant block on
the east side of the river one block south
of the Morrison-street bridge. At that time
mere were no enterprises to speak of on
me isast mae. waterfront property was va-
vant for long distances and of no value to
the owner or to the city. Portland was in
circumstances far different from what It Is
now. mere, was then a great need for
enterprises which would give employment
to our idle population and would nls.ce the
Inside property on a paying basis in order
io produce much needed revenue for mu
nicipal purposes. I bought the block, pay
ing all that it was considered worth at
Property Made Productive.
During ail these years I have made the
best use of the block my circumstances
would permit. I have given the business all
or my time rrom o clock In the morning
until the last man had left at nieht. Mont
of the time I have employed an average of
6 skilled mechanics, and oftentimes have
had over 100 in my crew. I have used ma
terials rrom local mills and factories.
have built boats for Puget Sound, Alaska,
Mexico, Canada and our interior Western
fetates, besides the work I have done
river and ocan-golng craft. In doing this
I have brought into the city hundreds of
thousands or dollars which have all been
spent for materials of local manufacture
and for wages of Portland men. and the
money has been kept here. Whatever profits
I have made I have Invented In improve
ments on the block. It has been said In
newspaper articles that the riverfront has
been grabbed up by millionaires and held
In an undeveloped state as a speculation
io me great oetnment of Portland.
want to protest against this statement and
would say that In my own case and in the
case of many other owners whom I know
there has been no grabbing of riverfront
nor noiding tor speculative purposes; but
rather th property has been Improved so
that It has produced an Increasing revenue
io me city in taxes and has given em'
ployment to a large number of workmen.
My taxes nave steadily increased until
now l am paying 200 a month on this
J contena that even If there Is a
technicality relating to riparian property
I have done everything a man can do to
finuiie me u me ngnt to the full property

ECROPE.VX KJiCORDS RECALLED
Grain Carriers Open Season 'With
Fast Pussages to Europe.
Faster passages for sailing vessels
between the Columbia River and
Europe are looked for this season as a
result of the performance of the Brit
ish bark Gal Rate, which arrived out
last week after a run of 111 days, and
that of the British bark Killarney in
J J t cays.
As yet the record sailing time from
this port is not in peril, the British ship
Caithloch having established it in 1S79,
when she completed the voyage in S9
days. the was loaded by Henry Hewitt
and on leaving the harbor her master
said he would make a record trip or
jana witn i)avy Jones. The ship was
87 days from land to land and mariners
here say the time yet holds as the best
from the Pacific Coast.
The British ship Machrihanlsh sailed
to Queenstown la 91 days In 1892 and
the Selkirkshire covered the distance
In 109 days. The Sutherlandshire was
100 days out in 1894 and in the same
year the Principality reported in 97
days from the Columbia. She sailed
December 18. and with her went the
Boashlre and they made a close race
of It. the latter reporting in 99 days,
while the Primrose Hill, which followed
them to sea that day. spent 110 days.
The British ship Knight of the Garter
is credited with a run of 99 days In
189J and the Metropolis, now in port
loading wheat, was 10 0 days on the way
in 1891 and 109 days in 1892. In 1893
the Colony, which is now headed for
the United Kingdom, spent but 107 days
on the same voyage and the Port Pat
rick waa ins days in 1893. The Amer
ican ship Kenilworth speeded there in
111 days and on the last leg, the run
across the Atlantic, sailed it In 13 days.
That is said to be the fastest passage
over that course.
BAYOCEAX MAT CHAXCE I1AXIXS
Callforntans Consider Yacht for
Service on Southern Coast.
Negotiations may soon be opened for
the purchase of the gasoline passenger
yacht Bayocean by resident of South
ern California, who contemplate op
erating a vessel to Northern Mexico
ports during the Summer season. It is
planned to run from San Diego south
and, aa there Is usually quiet water
there, the Bayocean is regarded as an
excellent type for the purpose.
The vessel waa built here by Joseph
Supple for the Potter Realty Company
and for one season plied between Port
land and Bayocean, near Tillamook.
Because of the expense in carrying pas
sengers from this city a plan was tried
of running between Astoria and Tilla

has been out of commission and held
at Bayocean. She Is said to have cost
In excess of $40,000. Her accommoda

Louise Huff, one of the principal players in Lew Wallace's mighty
religious drama, "Ben Hur," has declined to enter into a new contract
with Klaw A Krlanger for next season. Miss Huff is enacting- the
role of Tirzah in "Ben Hur." The reason given to C. F. Towle, busi
ness representative for the owners of "Ben Hur," was that at the end
of the present season she intends to enter the cloisters of a convent
for the remainder of her earthly existence.
Miss Huff is one of the most beautiful women on the American stage
today. Ever since childhood Miss Huff has had a. longing for the se
cluded religious life, and that desire, she says, has been emphasized by
the beautiful story of the Naxarene as told by General Wallace in his

Radical Changes in Court Procedure
Do Xot Meet With Approval of
Sam Vnn Vactor.
Responding to. the request of The
Oregonian for his views on judicial re
vision, San Van Vactor, of Heppner, Or.,
one of the leading lawyers of Eastern
Oregon, declares that dilatory tactics
on the part of lawyers. In which the
judges participate by force of habit,
constitute the chief fault of the state
courts. He believes in a display of
more, good faith on the part of practic
ing attorneys rather than radical
changes in the code; establishment of
Circuit Court rules by statute; limiting
the time for taking appeals, and giv
ing judges more power "to wield the
whip on dilatory attorneys." His let
ter is in part as follows:
"Delay is the chief trouble with our
judicial system at the present time. All
lawyers are dilatory, and particularly
so if to their client's Interest.
By statutory enactment establish
Circuit Court rules and eliminate, so
far as possible, dilatory pleas. If the
trial judge finds that any pleading is
filed for delay, severe terms should be
"The time In which appeal could be
taken to the Appellate Court should be
limited to not more than 30 days. Mat
ters taken under advisement by the
trial court should be decided within 20
days from date of submission.
"Each county should constitute a
judicial district, and the judicial busi
ness now transacted by the County
Court should be taken over by the Cir
"No change Is necessary in our pres
ent system aa to District Attorneys.
Circuit Judges should receive sufficient
remuneration that men who will rigid
ly and wisely enforce the reforms men
tioned will seek the office and assume
its responsibilities feeling that they
are not making a great sacrifice. .
"Primarily, I believe the trouble lies
with the practicing attorneys. Judges
are but human. Having grown - up
under the present system, they hesitate
to put into effect rules that the attor
neys would complain of.
"Pay the judges commensurate with
the services demanded; give them the

CAR SERVICE PROTESTED
Complaint of Councilman on Xew
Schedule Without Effect.
Councilman Schmeer, of the Eighth
Ward, and two other men were present
to protest against the alternate-street
stop in vogue on the Sunnyside and
Mount Tabor streetcar lines, when the
Council committee on car complaints
met at the City Hall yesterday morn
ing. Their protests were insufficient to
cause the committee to recommend a
cessation of the plan, however, and it
will continue in force.
Mr. Schmeer said his constituents are
not satisfied with the new service, but
wish a return to the stop at every cross
ing of 200 feet and sometimes less.
General Superintendent Franklin and
Superintendent of Transportation Coop
er, speaking for the Portland Railway,
Light Power Company, told the mem
bers of tne committee tnat tne service
has not been tried long enough yet to
determine its exact status, but that
they had received many pleasing com
pliments on the alternate-street stop
Mr. Schmeer complained that some
people had to walk a block up hill, to
which they objected, while he himself
one time could not get the conductor
to stop a car at the Schmeer crossing
on East Morrison street, for him to
alight, and he had to walk back a
block. One man saia ne ODjectea io tne
svstem because he runs a store and the
outbound cars do not stop at his street
As a matter of fact, it is said that
the vast majority of the people on the
line are In favor of the new system, as
it saves time and troubte. The com
pany is proceeding to put it into effect
on the Sandy boulevard line and the
Hawthorne-avenue and Mount Scott
lines, in response to petitions, as was
d.one in the case of the Sunnyside and
Mount Tabor lines.
SNOW'S GOING IS RELIEF
Cold 'Snap Taxes Charitable Organ
lzation as Need Is Felt.
The departure of the snow is some
thing that has been hoped for for sev
eral days by the various charitable or
ganizations of the city, for while the
storm has been upon the city work
closed down in so many places that
hundreds of persons were thrown upon
their hands asking for assistance.
The Associated Charities has been
handling the most urgent cases as best
it could and In the past few days fuel,
foodstuffs and clothing have been dis
tributed among many families. Work
has been created where it has been
possible, but even with all efforts that
could be made there have not been
jobs sufficient to supply the men who
are out of work and at every house In
the city where loads of wood were de
livered yetserday there would be from
three to a dozen applicants for the Joh
of putting it into the basement.
Shoes are especially needed at the
Associated Charities at this time. Many
of the families that have been visited
by the representatves of the organiza
tion have several children whose foot
wear is entirely inadequate at this
time of dampness and cold. Food and
fuel are also much needed, for there
are many cases where families are des
titute and have not even the means for
keping their shacks warm.
The Municipal Employment Agency
was crowded with men and has been
unable to find temporary work enough
to tide them over the snowy season.
Logging and construction camps reply
to the demands for work that they are
laying off men daily during the season
of bad weather and that they have
nothing to offer at this time.
