Shipyard, Idle Five Tears, Takes on
New Life In 1913.
RAYMOND. Wash., Jan. 31. The
Raymond shipyard, which has been idle
since 1907, will be placed in shape for
the early construction of one and per
haps two steam schooners. Such was
the announcement made today by 12.

sion and is said to be the finest
schooner engaged In the lumber carry
lng business on the Pacific Coast The
Avalon will arrive on Tuesday to take
on cargo at the Quinault mill in this
The opening of the Raymond ship
yard is considered one of the biggest
achievements of this city in several
years, as it means the employment of
a large crew of skilled laborers. The

Doris, plying between northern ports
and California, were built here, as was
also the -Majestic, which was lost s

It Is planned to leave down this aft
ernoon with the German bark Oster

usual ports in the United Kingdom for
orders, being loaded with wheat. The

probably cross out to sea today. The

to Davies & Fehon.

bark. General de Neerrier to reach the

ing from Newcas-tle-on-Tyne cost her
owners a charter, as she was under
engagement to the Portland Flouring
Mills Company to load with wheat for
the United Kingdom, the rate being
45 shillings. As there has been a de
cided drop in feights the ship will
probably be rechartered on a lower
basis. As she has been on the way
198 days, her non-appearance is caus
ing concern. She is bringing general
cargo to Meyer, Wilson & Company.

Dissolution of Merger Is Ex
pected to Add to Local
Territory. '
Cltlmate Absorption of O.-W. R. &
N. by Union Pacific With One
Continuous System Directed
From Omaha Predicted.
With the enforced dissolution of the
Harrlman system and the return of
the Southern Pacific to an independent
footing in the railroad world, the name
"Harrlman" as an official designation
of the Union Pacific and allied proper
ties will be eliminated.
Hereafter the Union Pacific, Oregon
Short Line and O-W. R. & N. Company
collectively will be known as the
"Union Pacific System." This probably
is a step toward the ultimate complete
domination and control by the Union
Pacific of the O.-W. R. & N. Company
as it now dominates and controls the
Oregon Short Line.
While the O.-W. R. & N. Company
will continue with a separate executive
organization, with headquarters In
Portland, there has resulted in the
process of separating the Southern Pa
cific from the other lines an evident
and well-defined tendency to make the
entire property from Kansas City and
Omaha on the East to Portland and
Puget Sound on the West one contin
uous system, with one executive head
and under control from one general
office. That office will be at Omaha.
Portland Not to Lose.
When this plan is carried into effect
Portland will retain its general offices
and will continue as headquarters for
the lines In the Northwest. Portland is
not likely to lose any of its prestige as
railroad center by these proposed
changes, it is predicted. On the other
hand, it Is pointed out. Portland is
likely to gain some authority and some
territory over which it will exercise
jurisdiction. Salt Lake City Is likely
to suffer. '
The way the Union Pacific now is or.
ganlzed it has three general offices
Omaha, Salt Lake City and Portland,
having supervision over the Union Pa
citlc Oregon Short Line and O.-W. R.
&. N. Company, respectively.
Under any circumstances it will be
necessary to maintain a strong, pow.
erful organization on the Coast, but it
is considered unnecessary to continue
an intermediate office. If the Short
Line office remains at Salt Lake It will
be because of policy or local influence.
Economy and efficiency would dictate
the abandonment of the Sale Lake of
Once before, when the Union Pacific
sought to control the lines in the
Northwest from the Omaha office, the
result was not at all satisfactory to
this territory. But the Santa Fe has
operated its entire system from Chi
cago to San Francisco with one execu
tive office, but with a powerful organ
ization, having complete authority on
all affairs affecting its territory on the
Coast- , Recently the Milwaukee sys
tem, operating from Chicago to Puget
Sound, effected a similar organization.
. Order Is Significant.
Although steps to deprive the O.-W.
R. & N. Company of its identity may
not be taken until the present organi
zation becomes adjusted, it is appar
ent that this is the ultimate object of
the Union Pacific officials. The order
to refer to all their properties as the
"Union Pacific System" is significant.
Under the present arrangement the
local officials have complete . Jurisdic
tion over the O.-W. R. & N. property.

In obeying the letter of the recent
merger decision of the United States
Supreme Court, the Southern Pacific
employes are ordered to pay particular
attention in seeing that the public may
not be led to believe that the old rela
tion between the Union and Southern
still exists.
The railroad men are instructed to
watch closely the lettering on doors,
windows and stationery, to prevent the
words Union and Southern Pacific from
appearing together. They have been
instructed to watch all advertising
matter and prevent any advertising of
both roads at the same time.
They are further Instructed so to
separate the Southern from the Union
Pacifio representation as to cease the
joint use of any ticket or freight of
fices. The orders direct Southern Pa
cific agents at such points as Salt
Lake. Ogden, Tacoma, Seattle and
Portland,, to obtain offices for the
Southern Pacific separate from Union
Pacific offices. In cases where an im
mediate departure" from offices now
engaged may not be accomplished, the
Southern Pacific men are instructed
to divide counter space with the Union
Pacific and erect signs over the count
ers that will inform the public of the
disassociation of the two roads.
Beginning on Saturday. Southern
Pacific agents will cease "pulling" for
Union Pacific routings to the East, and
In every possible case send freight and
passengers over the Sunset route,
which gives the Southern Pacific the
longer haul. In cases where It Is de
sired to move freight to the East by
direct route. Southern Pacific agents
will give the shipper the opportunity
of expressing his preference of the Un
ion Pacific or Rio Grande routing.
The formal dissolution of the two
railroads became -effective Saturday,
and the instructions issued yesterday
are Intended to establish the dissolu
tion wherever the Southern Pacific
operates or has a representation. The
dissolution will swell the Southern Pa
cific's expense to a certain extent, as
where the company in the past has had
a Joint representation with the Union
Pacific, it will hereafter have Individ
ual representation.
On the Pacific Coast and in Salt Lake
the company will continue to retain
the present representatives. Elsewhere
the following will Represent the South
ern Pacific exclusively:

Bank Teller Says He May Have
Been Mistaken in Testimony at
Former Hearing.
LOS ANGELES, Cal, Jan. 31. Rob
ert F. Bain, the first Juror sworn in
the trial of James B. McN'amara. told
today for the third. time since the ab
rupt end of that noted case the story
of his alleged corruption by Bert ri.
Franklin, when called to the stand as
a witness against Clarence Darrow,
who is on trial on the charge of bav
lng bribed Bain.
Bain's Btory was almost identically
the same as told at Franklin's prelim
inary examination and Darrow's first
trial. On cross-examination by Chief
Counsel Earl Rogers he said that he
did not promise to vote for the ac
qulttal of McNamara, but that he
merely told Franklin he would "help
him out" if the evidence Justified such
a course.
Assistant District Attorney Ford and
Attorney Rogers became involved in a
controversy during the examination of
George C. Toung, a bank teller, who
followed Bain on the stand. Toung told
of Franklin depositing a check for
$1000, signed by Darrow, on October 6,
1911. and of subsequently casning
Franklin's check for 1500.
Toung testified at the first trial that
he bad given Franklin S50 and S100
bills and today he said he might have
been mistaken . then. Rogers read
from the transcript of the first trial
Young's assertion that he was "sure"
thore were no J20 bills in the money
he gave Franklin, and he attempted
to show that an effort had been made
by the prosecution to have Toung
change his testimony.
Toung said be had visited the Dis
trict Attorney's office and admitted
having been asked If he was certain
that his testimony at the first ' trial
was correct, but he denied that any
effort had been made to cause him to
change his testimony. He admitted
finally that his testimony at the first
trial was correct "to the best of his
knowledge." Bain and his wife testi
fied at the first trial that the 3400
given them by Franklin contained no
currency of larger denomination than
$20 bills.
Bert Franklin Is expected to take the
stand when the trial Is resumed Mon
