McArthur, assistant to the general manager of the Pacific Power A Light Company, and brother to C. N. McArthur, Speaker of the House of Representatives, was walking into his drawing-room when persons who were behind him began to push forward and shout that there was an attempt to hold up the car. . Valuable Are Hidden. "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 cial agent for the road, and "Dad" 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. T. G. Ryan and Frederick M. Dempsey representing the District Attorney's of fice, visiting the hospital in an attempt to get a statement from Barron. -Paaaeager Give Ynxtoa. E. W. Hill, a salesman for the Bur roughs Adding- Machine Company, of 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. The police theory is that Barron was one of the gang and that the robber In the -observation car mistook him for a stranger. Former H.Ida. Recalled. 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 "Dutch Pete." Bill Brooks, and Jack Hares. Brooks got four years, the other two 12 year sentences. Brooks died in the penitentiary. while. Strof and Hayes were later re leased and are now out on parole. Strof was paroled to Sheriff Stevens In per son. and has to report to him. Prior to this there were two other holdups in or near Sullivan s gulch. The Soo-Spokane train is operated for fast service between Portland and St Paul, Minn. It runs over the O.-W. R. & N. tracks from Portland to Spo kane, thence on the Spokane & Inter national, the Canadian Pacific and the Soo line Into St. ram. it leaves tne Portland Union Depot at 9 P. M. Its first stop east of Portland Is Hood River. It generaly Is well filled with passengers, most of whom travel In the Pullman cars. The robbers made no attempt to en ter either the express or the mall cars. The police conclude that their discre tion marks them as talented men. By avoiding the mallear they preclude pur suit by Federal authorities. ROBBER VICTIM . TELLS STORY i 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 the wall. I think it was opposite a picture where a man wanted somebody to go away and leave him alone. A very ap propriate sentiment. I saw the bullet afterward and It was a 32-callbre. look ing as though It had been shot by an automatic pistol." Those of us who got Into the sleeper ahead began to wonder If It waa a joke for a minute or so, but I con cluded to take no chances, so I hid my watch under a seat and put a $5 piece in my hat so I would not no broke when I got to The Dalles. Those who had been robbed In the observa tion car had been driven Into our sleep er and the leader of the pair of rob bers went through our little party. He was quite cool and stuffed his gun in our faces while he got wnat he could. His partner was drunk, or at least partly so. and the leader admonished him to keep cool and brace up. Tne other fellow was badly rattled. The leader did not get much and con tinually complained that we were poor sports and "cheap guys" to be riding In Pullman cars. 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 ward through our sleeper and finally 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 brakeman and I filed out on the ob servation platform and found a man, apparently a hobo, who gave his name es Barron, and who said he bad been shot while getting off the roof. He was all shot up and bleeding, and we could do but little for him. f73lf51g?55irn - 7i fir .?

NEW PLANS MADE 1914- Festival to Eclipse Any Ever Held in Portland. ' MANAGER TO BE NAMED Bank Will Handlo Funds and All Contributions and Expenditures W ill Bo Made Public Added Attractions Promised. C. C. Colt, presiaent. C. V. Cooper, first vice-president.

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 elation. 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 test. 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 lect headquarters. 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 of government. 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 three days. 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. PORTLAND BUSINESS DIRECTORY AttUKDIOX PLEA Tt G.

"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 Importance. "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.
