"I walked right along Into my room."
said McArthur. who went with the
train when it proceeded on ita way
after the affair, "and stayed there
awhile. Then when nothing happened
and there seemed to be no further ex
citement I ventured out. But I took
very good care to dispose of my prop
erty. I put my watch In my hat and
slipped a $5 gold piece into the rim
and P.ut a diamond pin from my neck
tie into my shoe. So all the robber got
from me was about 4 In silver.
"He looked at me when he dug the
Oliver out of my pocket and he said:
'You certainly are a bunch of cheap
stiffs.' Then he went out and walked
off the back end."
When' the men ran they threw aside
part of their baggage, and the total
amount finally lost is small. Patrolman
Lewis found them later.
Police Art Quietly.
When the police were notified. Police
Captain Iltley loaded a squad of patrol
men. in the police patrol wagon, and
Captain Baty and a half dozen detec
tives responded. E. B. Wood, chief spe

Hunter, deputy constable, hurried to the
place In a taxi.
Detectives Vaughn and Hyde were
standing behind a pillar of the bridge
15 minutes after the alarm was turned
In. when a man, now supposed to have
been the third member of the party,
came walking up the bank. Vaughn
shouted at him to stop, and he jumped
Into the bushes. Both men fired a
number of times Into the brush, but
the man had evidently (rotten away.
J. W. Bowen. a wheat buyer, who
lives at Hood River, was another pas
senger on the train, and was in the
front when the holdup men came into
the compartment car. He gave it as his
opinion that the holdup men were ama
teurs and that one was drunk.
Sheriff Tom Word was at Alameda
Park when he received word of the
holdup. He and Deputy Lumsden
ecoured the lumbtr yard at Thirty
ninth street, while Deputies Beckman
and Downey went toward Vancouver.

E. W. Hill, a salesman for the Bur

Portland, was a passenger on the train
last night. At Hood River he gave an
account of the holdup as he saw it.
His description coincides almost exact
ly with the account given to the police
and railroad officials.
Hill says that Barron, who is dying
at the hcspltal, jumped from the top
of the train and started to run away.
One of the robbers in the rear coach
shouted to him to stop. Barron kept
on running.. Then the man shot.

Last night's holdup is the first one
of an O.-W". R. & N. train in nearly five
years. The last holdup took place about
five years ago near Clarnle, six miles
out from Portland.
It was engineered by three men.
They unhooked the mail and express
cars and ran them about a mile and a
half down the track. They then dyna
mited the express car and took its val
uables, consisting of a small amount
of money, some watchea and a few dia
monds. All the men involved in the holdup
were captured shortly afterward by
Sheriff Steven's office, convicted after
pleading guilty, and sent to the peni
tentiary. They were Peter Stror, alias

ROBBER VICTIM . TELLS STORY
Passenger Gives Graphic Details of
Scenes Aboard the Train.
BY L. A. M ARTHUR.
THE DALLES, Or., Aug. 19. (Spe
cial.) I was sitting In the observa
tion car reading a paper, and we had
hardly gotten more than a couple of
hundred yards east of the East Port
land station when the train came slow
ly to a standstill. I went on reading
for a few minutes, while the brakeman
got out his lantern and started to go
down the track. Two men came run
ning up the track to meet him and or
dered him back on the car.
As he climbed over the railing. Mrs.
Davis, of The Dalles, called out:
"It s a holdup."
I did not waste any time speculating,
but with a bunch of others crowded
forward to the sleeper ahead. Mrs.
Davis' warning gave us a good chance
to hide our valuables. The two men
went through those who remained In
the observation car and then marched
them forward, taking a shot at Brake-
man Roy Thomas, who did not move
fast enough for them. The bullet went
over his bead and landed in the side of

him to keep cool and brace up. Tne
other fellow was badly rattled.
The leader did not get much and con

They're holding out en us, Dick, he
called to his companion, who stood In
the passageway by the drawing-room.
"They have planted their stuff. They
are cheap guys and I guess we'll have
to frisk them." Indicating that he want
ed to give us a more complete search.
Everybody was cool and collected and
there was no excitement to amount to
anything;. The two robbers went back
and we heard a ehot in the vestibule.
They came back complaining because
they got so little. The leader still
wanted to go through the crowd again.
He fished around under some of the
seats and still called us "cheap guys"
for not being able to contribute more
to his collection. They never went for

went back through the observation car.
There were a couple or more shots
and then we waited for a while. When
It was apparent they nad gone, the

all shot up and bleeding, and we could
do but little for him.

ttval for 1914. They were selected by
the board of 12 governors, who were
chosen a week ago by the delegates
of the 89 societies who formed the re
organized Rose Festival.
The meeting of the new board was
held at the Commercial Club. Those
present were Frank T. Griffiths, Guy
W. Talbot. Wilbur E. Coman, C. V.
Cooper, C. C Colt, Dr. T. L. Perkins,
L. R. Alderman, Ralph W. Hoyt, A. H.
Averill, William F. Woodward and J.
A. Currey. The other governor, Frank
C Rlggs. was out of the city.
The meeting waa most enthusiastic.
The first matter discussed was or
ganization. The present Rose Festival
organization will meet and dissolve
early In September. All Its assets will
be turned over to the reorganized asso
Organlsatloa to Be Permanent.
As the new association can do little
until the old organization goes out of
existence, the matter of Incorporation
was referred to Mr. Griffiths, who will
report at the next meeting.
Tentative by-laws were adopted and
while the officers chosen might be con
sidered temporary, they will be i
talned when the new association ob
tains a charter. Mr. Colt, unanimously
elected president, said he felt that the
new board of governors was Imbued
with the Idea of making the 1914 Fes
tival the greatest in the history of the
city. At the conclusion of his re
marks each member arose and Individ
ually pledged his support to Mr. Co it
In making the coming Festival tae
Selection of a treasurer was post
poned, but It Is likely that one of the
National banks of the city will be
asked to act as treasurer.
One of the first duties of the new
board of governors will be the seloc
tlon of a manager and conslderatia'i of
applicants. A special committee, con
sisting of all of the officers was ap
pointed to Investigate the qualifica
tions of various candidates and to se
Many Want Slaaaglns; Job.
Several applications for the position
of manager have been received, some
of them coming- from as far East as
Cleveland. All of the applicants have
more or less experience in handling
events similar to the Rose Festival, but
as the 1914 show probably will be the
largest ever given it will take a man
of exceptional ability to handle it.
It Is likely that the requests to be
made for contributions will be based
upon some fair and equitable basis so
that each person contributing: will do
so in an amount equal to the benefits
to be received from the Festival.
"It will be a systematic, fair and
square campaign for funds," said one of
the new governors, and if possible ar
rangements will be made with the varl.
ous newspapers from time to time to
publish the entire list of contributions
so that every citizen may know Just
how much money is being contributed.
At the same time a statement of dis
bursements will be published so that
the contributors will know exactly how
each dollar is expended."
When the new organization Is char
tered and put into working order it will
be along the lines of a commission form
If plans do not miscarry the new
governors will present a - number of
new and startling features. The river
facilities of the city will be the scene
of one or more event, the object being
to attract attention to the excellent
fresh water harbor of Portland. While
there will be a rose show as in past
years. It will probably be along some
new lines. School children will have a
big part in the Festival. There "will be
parades of various kinds and there will
be carnival events In the afternoon in
which everyonecan take part.
The question 'of the duration of the
Festival was discussed informally but
ft Is assured that the celebration will
last not longer than four days and
possibly the events will be crowded Into
The exact time and number of days
will not be decided until later, when
details of the organization and events
to be staged will be settled.

MOVE PART OF BIG, PLAN
Official Would Center Nation-Wide
Attention on Oregon's Problems
by Bringing Xotable Students
of Economics In 1914. .
In furtherance of a plan to center
Nation-wide attention on the Oregon
tax situation, its perplexities and trou
bles. Charles V. Galloway. State Tax
Commissioner, Is now completing; plans
for a. carrmaiifn to bring: to Fortlano In
1914 the eighth annual conference of
the National Tax Association.
With Hearv Reed. County Assessor.
and F. W. Mulkey. Mr. Galloway has
been appointed a delegate to the sev
enth conference in Buffalo next Octo
ber, and be says that if he can interest
Portland people in bringing the con
ventlon here, he will probably attend as
Air. Galloway feels that, with the
conference being held here, a great
state Interest will be excited in tax
matters and that the conference win
be the means of educating the voters
of the state as to the rights and wrongs
of tax questions coming before them
for approval or rejection.
Governor West Interested.
Mr. Galloway has already Interested
Governor West and proposes to take
up the matter with the delegates Irom
Washington and California.
The conference would be the means
of bringing to Oregon tax experts from

inces. Delegates from 3 states and 4"

is now president or tne .National lax
Coat Comparatively MI.
"As every delegate pays his own ex
penses, the cost Jf bringing the con
vention here would be practically nil,"
said Mr. Galloway as he passed a few
hours in Portlan don his way to Salem.
"I think, however, that It should be
known whether the commercial organi
zations would feel like doing some en
tertaining for the conference, which
would include some really notable per
sons. "As soon as I learn about this festure
I shall take up the preliminaries with;
the executive committee, of whom 1
am a member, and If necessary bring
the fight on to the floor of the con
ference. "The conference would bring to Ore
gon many men who have never been
West before, some men who are Na
tional figures and each delegate one
who is a person of unquestioned stand
ing and Influence in bis own commu
nity. No Guarantee Required.
"We have to offer them a first-hand
examination into affairs in much-discussed
Oregon while at the same time
the coming of the conference here
would stimulate an Interest anions
ourselves in our own tax affairs that
could not fail to be of unquestioned
"I believe the conference could be
Induced to come. West, but before the
delegates leave for the October gather
ing in Buffalo, N. Y, they should be
assured of local support.
"In deference to some local opinion
in the community regarding past con
ferences, I emphasize that there would
be no guarantee required or other fund
put up by the business men or residents
of this state."
The single tax will in various forms
come up for discussion at the Buffalo
conference, as the executive committee
has two single-taxers among its mem
bers, one of whom is S. T. Howe, vice
president, while Lawson Purdy. a lead
ing aingle-taxer of New York, is also
on the board. Thomas S. Adams is sec
retary of the conference. Mr. Adams
is State Tax Commissioner of Wiscon
sin, while A. B. Holcomb. assistant sec
retary of the American Telephone &
Telegraph Company, is treasurer.
