Agreement Reached Between

rell. president of " the O.-W. K. N.

that the company will put In a fill,

County's end of the proposed scenic
hlffhway been overcome.
A complete agreement covering
points where the rights of way of the
railway and the wagon road will con
flict was reached Tuesday, when
county officials were the guests of
President Farrell and sub-officials of
the railway company in a private car
trip over the railway line, which the
wagon road will hug all the way to
Hood PJver. The agreement will be
reduced to writing. President Farrell
said, by the company's attorneys in a
few days and submitted to the County
Court. The railway company gave way
to the county on practically every
point, with the result that the maxi
mum grade on the road will not be
above 7 per cent. Were It necessary
to wind the road over the top of cliffs,
erodes as steep as 19 per cent would
Retalalns; Wall Necessary.
The first difficult situation given
consideration was at a point a little
west of Multnomah Falls. Here Presi
dent Farrell agreed that the county may
take out a large quantity of loose rock,
building in return a retaining' wall on
the side next the railway. The wagon
road at this point will be 14 feet wide.
At Oneonta gorge the county pro
posed a grade crossing, but the com
pany would not hear of this because
of the danger. It was agreed the
county will cross the railway tracks
twice with overhead crossings. This
will necessitate the construction of
about 2000 feet of trestle, at a cost of
about $6500. Another proposal here
was that an open cut be made through
the rock at one point and that a tun
nel 110 feet In length be put through
at the other end. The tunnel and cut
would cost about the same as the'
trestle but the railway engineers were
afraid to risk it because of the nature
of the rock. They were afraid of slides
and fearful that the whole hillside
might be dislodged.
Prlaoa Labor to Be Vaed.
The trestle will be so constructed as
to give a clearance of S3 feet above
the railway tracks. The greatest grade
will be S per cent. County Engineer
Holbrook estimates. The inclines will
have to start 400 feet away from the
points where the tracks are to be
crossed In order to secure this grade.
At various places the county will
build rock walls between the wagon
road and the cliffs, filling; in back of
the latter. There will be about five
miles of these walls and prisoners will
be used in their construction. The idea
Ss to minimise the danger of slides. At
the points where the wagon road comes
dangerously close to the railway tracks
the county will build walls separating
The original estimate on the 15 miles
of road which we will have to build
from Bridal Veil east to complete our
end of the highway was $102,000. but
this was on the basis of climbing over
the cliffs on steep grades, said County
Knglneer Holbrook. "Concessions made
by the railway company will reduce
the grade but will necessitate more
rock work, making it necessary to
spend $150,000, or $10,000 a mile, for
the bare grade. Macadamizing, which
will come later, probably will cost
about $2000 a mile. The expense of
macadamizing would be greater, were

Guests of Appointees.
GOOD POINTS ARE SHOWN
Personal Contact Between Execu

Most Effective Way of Se
en ring Results.
C A. Pratt and J. H. Wallace, mem
bers of the Washington Commission on
worklngmen's compensation, and Dr. J.
W. Mowell. of Olympia, the physician
of the Commission, last night gave to
the three members, of the Oregon Com
mission under the compensation act, an
idea of the practical work which is to
confront them when they assume ornce.
The conference was at an Informal
dinner at the Commercial Club, at
which were present not only the mem
bers of the Commission, but represen
tatives of the organizations that were
instrumental in securing the passage of
the condensation bill.
Mr. Pratt said that after the act has
been in force in Washington for more
than three years, there is now practic
ally no element either among employers
or laboring men that is not extremely
friendly to it. Out of more than utiuv
employing companies that are under
the provisions of the act, he said that
there are only three tnat nave opposea
It, and that their opposition was due
not to the objections to the law so
much as to their Inability to meet Its
Few Appeals Taken.
Indicating the degree of satisfaction
with which the decisions of the Com
mission are received, he said that out
of some 18,000 cases upon which the
Commission has passed, only 38 have
heen annealed and manv of these ap
peals were taken at the instance of the
Commission Itself, to determine some
point of the law which is not clear to
"Really the only persons that have
suffered in the least from the compen
sation act," he said, " are the solicitors

greater compensation than they wouia

"The state makes its appropriation

Mr. Pratt, "and all of the money col
lected from the employes goes to tne
Iniured men. They get all of the in
surance under this act, because there
Is no need for costs of collection or for
Division of Work Suggested.
Mr. Wallace urged the closest co
operation between the members of the
Commission and urged the wisdom of
dividing the work of the Commission
among its members.
"You can't all do the same work," he
said. "Pass on the claim and then
let the member whom you deem best
fitted to deal with the laboring man
talk to him face to face. Personal
contact between the Commission and the
men who come under its judlsdiction
can do more to make Its work effective
than all the letters you can write."
Dr. Mowell outlined the part that
the physician must play In helping the
Commission arrive at Its conclusions
upon a case.
A. H. Harris, of the Labor Press.
speaking upon the attitude of labor
in Oregon towara tne compensation act,
declared that he believed the sentiment
among the laboring men Is favorable
and will grow more so.
"We have the utmost confidence In
the Commission that has been appoint
ed for Oregon." he said, "and I think
that practically all organized labor in
Oregon believes that it is to be given
a square deal under the compensation
act. That Is all they ask, and I be
lieve that they will receive it."
George M. Cornwall, who presided
over the dinner, and H. Beckwlth, of
the Commission, made brief addresses
at the close of the meeting.
Those present were: Harvey Becn
with. C. D. Babcock and W. A. Mar
shall, of the Oregon Commission on
Compensation; C. A. Pratt, J. H. Wal
lace and Dr. J. W. Mowell, represent

HUNT PICTURES SHOWN
Scenes In Wyoming Depleted by

American hunting pictures, showing

pictures were obtained by W. J. Stroud,
of Rock Springs, Wyo.. who passed the
Winters of several years collecting the
pictures. Motion pictures and single
photographs were used.
A mountain sheep is seen shot at
close range as It gazes into the camera
and a fight between five dogs and a
wildcat, in which the wildcat Is torn
up after a plucky resistance, is one of
the leading features. The wildcat is
shaken out of a tree by men, while one
stands ready to shoot it should it at

Bears in Yellowstone Park, eating at
the hotel swill piles, deer and
elk In the same place, and elk
at large In Jackson Hole, and
later being captured and boxed for

scenes. In the corrals the elk are so
badly frightened by the men that some
of them kill themselves in trying to
escape by running against the high
fence. Many beautiful pictures of Yel

and age, when civilization is supposed
to have reached an advanced stage,
good men have got to be bothered
by the populace and dragged forth into
the limelight and compelled to stand
for offices? It is wrong: I say, let
those who want office run for It, so
that those who do not like to be Mayor
or Commissioners and have their names

will not be subjected to such humilia

tics?" Colonel Bush was asked.
Women Cut Figure, He Says.
"I have been much Interested this
campaign," he replied, with a broad
grin, "to note how much figure the
women are cutting In your city politics.
This is the first time, so far as I can
recall, when I have read so much about
the consideration your candidates have
for the women. I see by the papers
where all of your candidates admit that
women should have a say in public af
fairs. I think the candidates are right.
In fact, I believe the women of Port
land will have a voice in the elections
this time and a pretty big voice, too.
Another thing which I perceive Is emi
nently popular with your candidates, is
commission government; I am glad to
see they all favor it. I also wish to
congratulate Portland on having so
many 'good government candidates. In
this way. no matter who is elected
Mayor and members of the commission,
you have good government cinched.
The people should be thankful."

Dr. Harvey W. Wiley Says:
"The Northern Pacific Dining Car Service is superior to anything
that has come under my previous observation. The food seems
pure and wholesome. The other railroads could do well to emu
late the methods of the Northern Pacific. I am told that nearly
everything used on their dining cars is grown on their own farms
and that it is carefully selected and ably prepared in the com
pany's kitchens. It was a pleasure for me to eat while traveling
on this road."
