CONVENTION IS FAILURE
Factions to Reorganize Into Rival
Bands Vagrancy Laws of South
ern States Are Angrily Criti
cized by Speakers.
NEW ORLEANS, Feb. I. The Na
tional bobo convention came to an end
today and. according to official an
nouncement made by -President Jeffer
on Davis, the hoboes' organization,
which James Eads How founded in St.
Louis eight years ago, has been
wrecked, on the rocks of socialism and
Is a thins of the past. Davis declared
the attempt to bold a National hobo
convention in New Orleans bad proved
a flat failure, which be attributed to
th efforts of "Millionaire" How and
others to use the hoboes for the dis
semination of socialistic propaganda.
Davis entertained a motion, suggest
ed by himself, and declared the hobo
organisation disbanded. How contin
ued to urge political and religious
principles to the last, but the hoboes
appeared to be charmed by the vigor
ous and magnetic utterances of Jeffer
son Davis, and never failed to Join
with the president in helping to howl
down How and his cohorts.
Separate Organizations Probable.
It Is said that How and Davis likely
will ornanize separate associations of
the "migratory workers."
"A hobo is not a barhouse bum, a
mere tramp nor a yeggman," said
Davis. "He simply is a workman out
of employment, who in the exigencies
of his peregrinations is compelled to
ride freight trains, go hungry and oc
casionally has to seek lowly employ
ment in order to get a bite and a
A delegate proposed today that the
boboes petition Congress to "stop
'bulls' from sapping 'bos who are mere
ly trying to ride a freight train."
The resolution was defeated.
Vagrancy Llm Criticised.
The vagranacy laws of Georgia,
Florida and Texas were bitterly crit
iclsed today by several of the hoboes.
One delegate declared he believed one
half of the men of Georgia are acting
as deputy sheriffs. Oklahoma, he said,
pays only 60 cents a head and con
sequently hoboes are not bothered
there as they are In Georgia, where the
bounty is 2.
Inspector of Police Reynolds aivlsed
the delegations to clear out of the city
before morning or they would have to
stay In the parish prison until alter
the MardI Gras visitors have departed.
Hobo Lnions Planned.
At the conclusion of a secret session
of the leading spirits of the convention
It was announced tonight that plans
had been perfected for organizing hobo
unions and affiliating with the Ameri
can Federation of Labor. The name
chosen for the new organization is
the "International Itinerant Workers'
Union, Hobos of America."-
F. A. Fitzgerald, organizer of the
American Federation of Labor in the
State of Louisiana, assisted in organiz
ing the new union.
C. Jefferson Davis, of Chicago, was
elected president; J. Raymond Freder
icks, Cleveland, recording secretary;
Rev. Peter M. H. Wynhaven, New Or

Contractor Charged With Xot Hav
ing Compiled With Specifications.
PASCO, Wash.. Feb. 2. (Special.)
A. R, Garey, contractor for Pasco s new
City Hall, has filed suit against the
city, alleging that he has fulfilled the
terms of his contract, but that the
Council Is wrongfully withholding part
of the money due him for services per
formed. Suit Is brought for J6438.42.
Mr. Carey declares that he is willing
and able to pay all claims filed against
the City Hall by sub-contractors, la
borers and others.
The city has authorized the employ
ment of an architect to check over the
plans and specifications and to com
plete the work, and Garey' bondsmen,
the Pacific Coast Casualty Company,

cording to the plans and specifications,
and that the building Is not completed.
Preparation for War.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 2. To work for
a large Navy, an adequate Army, the
Improvement of the National Guard and
for all things that will better prepare
the United States for war, the National
Defense League was organized here to

Expense . of Second Class.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 2. Postmaster
General Hitchcock's annual report.
made public today, tentatively sug

civil pensions for postal employes; an
Increase in rates on second-class mail.
which may pave the way for 1-cent
letter postage; tbe consolidation of the
third and fourth classes so books and
papers may be forwarded by parcel
post, and points out that during his
administration expense of operating
the Postal Service has been cut down
In course of a statement on the con
dition of postal finances, Mr. Hitch
"The transformation of a deficit into
a surplus has been accomplished, not
by curtailing the service, but by devel'
oping It along profitable lines. While
postal facilities have been greatly en
larged, extensions have not been made
In a haphazard manner, but only when
shown on investigation to be Justified
Savings Bank System Extended.
The establishing of postal savings
banks at Presidential postoffices was
completed early In the fiscal year end
ed June SO, 1912 the year covered by
the report. Since then the system has
been extended to 4004 fourth-class
postoffices, as well as to 645 branch
offices and stations in the larger cities.
There are now 12.812 postal savings
banks at which patrons may open ac
counts. The number of depositors is
approximately 800,000 and the depos
its aggregate about S28.000.000, not In
eluding $1,314,140 withdrawn and in
vested in postal savings bonds.
On the basis of the present monthly
net Increase of deposits, it Is estimat
ed that the gross income of the postal
savings system for the fiscal year end
ed June 30, 1912. will amount to $700.-
000 and the Interest payable to depos
itors to $300,000. The Income of the
system for the fiscal year will meet
the Interest payments and the total ex
penses of the central office, but will
be approximately $275,000 less than
enough to cover the entire expense of
the service. However, the Postmaster-
General's report says, "it Is expected
that when the deposits have Increased
to $50,000,000, which .at the present
rate they will do soon, the system will
Lftrser Packages Favored.
The report contains no references to
subjects which have developed since
December 1 and, consequently, the
Postmaster-General's consideration of
the parcel post has to do only with the
preliminary work of establishing the
new system, which went Into effect on
January 1. Tentatively, however, he
recommends not only that the parcel
post rates be reduced, but that the
weight of packages be Increased to a
point above the maximum weight of II
pounds. On this subject the report
"While the postage rates for the
new parcel post system range consid
erably lower than corresponding ex
press charges, it is believed that ex
perience will show them to be higher
in some Instances than is necessary in
order to maintain the service at cost.
Likewise, the restriction that places an
11-pound limit on the weight of par
cels mailed should be regarded as
merely tentative. After the system is
thoroughly organized on that basis the
scope of the service in its usefulness
to the public should be still further en
larged by increasing the weight limit.
If properly developed under efficient
management, the parcel post will
prove to be a most important factor in
reducing the cost of living."
Books Regarded ns'jircnli.
Perhaps the most Important recom
mendation contained in the report is
that the third and fourth classes of
mail be consolidated so that books and
other printed matter may be forward
fed by parcel post. At present the post
age charges for these two classes of
mall bear no fixed ratio to each other.
For certain weights and zones the par
cel post rates are lower than the third-
class rates, while in other cases they
"This condition." it is pointed out In
the report, "is likely to result in much
confusion and should not exist. Pack
ages containing books or catalogues
do not differ in any essential partic
ular from other parcels, and they
should be handled by parcel post
Prior to the enactment" of the parcel
post law the department urged that
these two classes of mail be consoli
dated, and the recommendation of such
action Is now renewed."
The report directs attention to the
approval of the commission, headed by
Associate Justice Hughes, of the Unit
ed States Supreme Court, of the Post-
office Department's recommendation
that the - postage rate on second-class
mall be Increased from 1 to 2 cents a
pound. In the opinion of the Postmaster-General,
favorable action by Con
gress on the report of the Commission
would be a step towards the proper
adjustment of postage charges.
One-Cent Postage Discussed.
"There is a widespread popular Inter
est," the report says, "in the plan to
lower the postage charge on letters
from 2 cents to 1 cent an ounce. The
proposed increase loathe second-class
rata would pave the way for this
change, making it possible to reduct
tha first-class rate without depart
ing from the present policy of a self-s-.pportlng
In connection with establishment of
the paroel post, Mr. Hitchcock recom
mends that legislation be enacted look
ing to the readjustment of the pay
ments to railroads for the transporta
tion of mail. He points out that many
of the roads will be entitled to In
creased compensation on account of
the Increased volume of mail. He re
news bis recommendation that pay
ments to railroads carrying the mails
shall be made on a car space basis
and the) cost to the roads of the mail
The report recommends that "civil
pensions, based on length of service,
bhould be granted by the Government
to postal employes when they become
superannuated. It is likely that the
cxi ruse of such a system would be
more than offset by gains In effi

and upon tha passage of the resolu
tion the following members were ap
pointed: Senators L N. Day and R. R.
Butler, and Representatives Allen, H.
Eaton, J. T.. Hinkle and D. E. Lot gran.
At the request -of Governor West a
similar resoluuon was Introduced in
the Washington Legislature, and upon
Its passage the following committee
was formed: Senators J. E. Leonard
and Arthur McGulre, and Representa
tives Z. Stewart. N. B. Brooks and S.
These committees met yesterday
morning in this city and with them
were Governor West, of Oregon, ana
Governor Lister, of Washington; John
H. Lewis, State Engineer; L. F. Hen
shaw, of the United States Geological
Survey, Portland; I F. Harza, an en
gineer who has made a survey of the
power site, and W. J. Robe'rts, High
way Commissioner of Washington, also
joined the party. .
These gentlemer left yesterday on
the 10 o'clock train on the O.-W. R. &
N. and arrived at The Dalles in time
to be seated in the dining-room of the
Hotel Dalles before 1 P. M., where, as
tbe guests of The Dalles Commercial
Club, they enjoyed a dinner that any
hostelry might well brag about.
At 2 P. M. the party, escorted by
about 100 citizens of The Dalles, em
barked on a train on the Portage road
and were taken to the site of the proj
ect, or rather to a point on the Celllo
Canal, now being constructed. Just to
the south of it, and about an hour was
spent In Inspecting the various points
at and contiguous to the place where
it is hoped .a gigantic power plant will
one day arise.
Much has recently been written and
printed about this project, but it Is by
no means an Idea of recent blrth.
Thlrty years ago, in making surveys
for some feasible plan of passage
around the Celllo Falls, the United
States Engineers conceived the Idea of
damming the river at this same point
and thus back the water over the falls,
which would make it necessary to build
a simple system of locks Instead of a
canal about eight miles long, as Is be
Ing now built.
Later the matter was taken up by
William E. Morris, United States Engi
neer in charge of the construction of
the locks at Cascade Locks, and he was
assisted in many ways by I. N. Day,
one of the committee of yesterday,
who was one of the contractors who
constructed those locks.
A few months ago State Engineer
Lewis took the matter up actively,
after sifting what information he had
gained informally, it may be said, from
observation, and under his direction L.
F. Harza and V. H. Reineking, promi
nent engineers, made preliminanry sur
veys and estimates on the project.
The report of their investigations
was embodied in a bulletin issued by
Mr. Lewis about a year ago, such re
port being the groundwork for the
present legislative Investigation. Cop
ies of this report may be had by ad
dressing Mr. Lewis at Salem.
It is contended that any amount of
horsepower can be developed up to
well. It all depends on the height of
the dam. Mr. Lewis has figured that
upwards of 300,000 horsepower can be
secured at a cost of $23,000,000. That
is the minimum power, as 236,000 addi
tional would be available for eight
months of the year.
The largest power plant In the coun.
try is at Niagara Falls. There the
maximum Is far less than the minimum
which can be developed at Celilo.
If such a project is undertaken the
only obstacles against generating the
maximum energy is destruction of
property, for a dam as high as the top
of the canal would ruin that work, and
by going a trifle higher the railroad
tracks would be submerged. So It lb
proba-ble that the most economical
amount to be figured on is about 250,-
000 horsepower. Even that would make
It the largest power project in tho
As the committees, or rather the
committee, for the two were merged
Into one, were returning on the train
an Informal meeting was held and each
committee will report to Its Legisla
ture favorably on the scheme and ask
an appropriation of probably $50,000
for a full, complete and detailed sur
vey and estimate of cost of the project,
and it Is understood Governor West
and Governor Lister are in favor o
In addition to this it is hoped to
secure $50,000 from the Interior De
partment, as the Reclamation Service
Is deeply interested. If the informal
estimates are anywhere near correct,
power can be developed for less than
$7 per horsepower, at which cost the
Irrigation systems of Eastern Oregon
and Eastern Washington would have
to be recast.
Of course, the whole scheme depends
upon the use and sale of the power. No
person can dispute the fact that the
power can be developed, and econom
ically developed. But can it be sold?
That is the question of first import
ance. On the other hand, it cannot be sold
until it is produced, nor can any cus
tomers be sought or contracts entered
into until complete surveys and esti
mates have been made.
And It is for this the money is
asked. It Is proposed to get the best
engineers to be found in the country,
and with these estimates as a basis, if
they are at all In accord with the
present believed cost of the complete
work, customers can be sought and per
haps capital found to undertake the
