Stuewe. a young married man. who was arrested bv Detectives Smith and Hill Tuesday night for offering it at the First Na tional Bank. He has admitted the for gery and will be held upon information that be is wanted for a similar offense in St. Louis. Groundwork for the attempt to ex tract 1150 from the Klrst National Bank was laid several weeks ago. when Stuewe. accompanied by his wife and child, rode from Chicago to Butte in the name car with E. A. Hertsche, a. Port land leather dealer. The two struck up an acquaintance, which allowed Stuewe to ask the name of his traveling com panion, and Mr. Hertsche obligingly wrote his name and address on the stub of a bank book, tendered by Stuewe. At Butte the new acquaintances part ed and Mr. Hertsche. a few days later, received a cordial little message from Etuewe. on a post card. Flint National Next om 1,1st. Last Tuesday a young man appeared In the line at the paying teller's window at the First National Bank, and asked if Mr. Hertsche had been there. The teller replied that he had not. "Too bad." remarked the stranger. "He was to have been here at 2 o'clock to indorse a check for me. Guess I shall have to go out and look him up." Soon afterward he was back at the window, with the remark: "I got him, you see." He presented a check for $150. bear ing on the reverse side below his own name, an-apparently good signature of E. A. Hertsche. Something about the transaction made the teller wary, and lie detained Stuewe while he telephoned to Mr. Hertsche. Stuewe was asked to wait, but when Hertsche arrived and the teller, looked around for hiin, he was gone Defectives Take Trail. The Pinkerton agency and the city de tectives were notified, and Detectives Smith and Hill and Superintendent Holmes took the trail. They found Stuewe registered at the Seward Hotel and he was taken into custody on a vagrancy charge. In the prisoner's possession was found the stub written by Mr. Hertsche, with plain evidence that a tracing had been made from it. The stub also corres ponded with the check presented at the bank, being of the stationery of the Commonwealth Bank of St Louis. An other check for $150 was found in Stuewe's possession. The prisoner was taken before the grand jury by Deputy District Attorney Collier, and made a full admission of his attempt. The vagrancy charge went over till August 22. IMMIGRATION PARTY DUE Northern Pacific Men to Pass Through Portland Today. Arrangements for the entertainment of the party of Northern Pacific travel ing Immigration agents who will be in Portland Saturday, following trips through the Willamette Valley and Cen tral Oregon, have been made by the Portland Commercial Club. The party, which, numbers about 2S, will pass through Portland today en route to Eugene, and will go to Bend tonight, accompanied by Paul E. Schwabe, representing the State Immi gration Commission. They will return to Portland by way of Vancouver, Wash. On Saturday the party will take lunch at the Commercial Club. Edgar B. Piper, president of the club, probably will preside. Railroad officials. Com mercial Club members and others will attend. NEW ASSISTANT IS NAMED Fred Hanssen Will Come to Local Offices of Southern Pacific. The appointment of Fred Hanssen as assistant superintendent of the Port laud division of the Southern Pacific, it was announced yesterday, is to be come effective at once. Hanssen has been Inspector of train service In the .office of V. R. Scott, general manager, at San Francisco. Ten years ago Hanssen was an office boy for Julius Kruttschnitt. director of maintenance and operation of the Harriman lines, in Chicago. His rise under Mr. Kruttschnitt. however, was rapid. In 1910 he entered In the stu dent school of the Harriman lines and quickly became assistant trainmaster at Los Angeles, then at Oakland pier. His next rise was to the Inspectorship. SETTLERS' TITLES CLEAR Time in Which Government Might File Suit Has Xovr Expired. Thousands of settlers and land owners in the Willamette Valley are relieved that the year during which suits might be filed by the United States Government against their land holdings under "the Innocent pur chaser" act expired yesterday. Tester day the title to their land became In disputable. The original right to ownership by the railroad has been involved. Vast tracts have been declared forfeited during the year ending yesterday. Forty of these cases have been decided against the holders of the land, some of the purchasers who had acquired 1000 or more acres of the grant lands from the Cregon & California Railroad Company, LABOR OFFICIAL EXPLAINS "Independents" ot Composed of Members of Other Unions. PORTLAND. Or.. Aug. 20. (To the F-ditor.) Considerable publicity has been given to the longshoremen's trouble with an "Independent organisa tion." and come of the statements in recent issues of the press ot Portland are calculated to mislead, anyone not familiar with the form of organisation of the American Federation of Labor, ot which Longeshoremen's Union 38-6 is a unit. The A. F. of L. has been given by the unions which compose It power to regu late and adjust jurisdictional disputes. One of the cardinal principles la that no union or any member thereof shall affiliate with a dual organization. This being true, the statement that the In dependents are composed of members of other unions of the A. F. of L. Is of little weight. The object of the American Federa tion Is to organize all workers. There fore, it must necessarily be democratic in form, else It could not survive. It is a movement In which force and vio lence has no part, and alleged rioting should be deprecated, and no doubt will be, by Longshoremen's No. 6. The solidarity of the labor movement, how" ever, depends upon the character of the workers. Competency and temper ance is the demand of the times, so the union should have some say in the selection of its members. When, as a result of false statements made In advertising for men some time ago, the city was flooded with idle men and the municipal government was compelled to provide work, it gave preference to citizens and men of fam ily. Shafl Longshoremen's. No. 38-6, be criticised for doing likewise? E. J. STACK, Secretary Oregon State Federation of Labor. BARTENDER LOSES CASE JCKY RETURNS SEALED VEIt DICT IX XAUEAU TRIAL. Alleged Parasite Convicted on Va grancy Charge 'Sentenced to 90 Days on Rockpilc and Fine, That as many as 50 men were piloted in. one day from the Acme Reception saloon at Fourth and Davis s'treets, to the Immoral resorts overhead, was an admission alleged to have been made by Charles Nadeau, the bartender, vho was placed on trial before a Jury in Municipal Court yesterday. "Sure I do," said Nadeau, according to Patrolmen Nlles and Hutchlngs. "Guys come in here and ask, and my Job depends on - it. If I don't do it someone else will." Nadeau. when on trial yesterday made a partial admission of making such a statement, but his defense rested on the legal point that answering such questions was not "soliciting" as charged. The Jury found Nadeau guilty, re turning a sealed verdict at 7 o'clock last night. Stanley Ross, an alleged parasite of Stella Morland, an inmate of the place, was convicted by a Jury on a vagrancy charge, immediately preceding Nadeau's trial. The woman, with live others, had been acquitted by a Jury the day before. Ross was sentenced by Municipal Judge Stevenson to serve 90 days on the rockpile and fined 1100 In addition. Harry Richardson, who was convicted Tuesday on the same charge, was given a sentence of 25 days on the rockpile. The Acme Reception and Its con necting rooms, have been, for many years, one of the notorious spots of the city. Abatement proceedings against them have been withheld on promise of the owners to take action. The arrests on which these trials fol low, were made prior to that arrange ment. Another case is pending in which the saloon management is charged with violating the liquor ordinance by main, talnlng the stairway by which Nadeau Is alleged to have piloted his visitors. QUE LICENSE REVOKED COMMISSION" DEFERS ACTION 0V CAR-FAKE ORDINANCE. Investigation of Front-Street Condi tions Ordered AVilh View to Hav ing Tracks Removed. At yesterday morning's session of the City Council the Mayor and Commis sioners postponed action of Commis sioner Daly's proposed ordinance to force the Portland Railway. Light & Power Company to sell six tickets for 25 cents. Mr. Daly himself recom mended this action In view of the statements of President Griffith of the car company to the Commission Monday and in view of the assertion of the offi cials of the East Side Business Men's Club that it has figures to present against those of Mr. Griffith. Mayor Albee's request that the grocery-saloon license of S. Brunn, 233 H Alder street, be revoked for violation, was granted. The Council also voted that no saloon license should be trans ferred to. or granted for a liquor shop in, the new building at Third and Alder streets, being erected by the Rose City Importing Company. Commissioner Bigelow suggested that the fee for transferring licenses be raised from $10 to J300 and the sug gestion will be considered at the "kitchen cabinet" meeting tomorrow morning at 10. The Commission created the position of storekeeper in the Purchasing Bu reau, under Purchasing Agent Wood, at a salary of $125 a month. With the Intention ultimately of hav ing all railroads remove their tracks on North Front street from Broadway bridge to Nicola! street. Commissioner Daly had an ordinance passed to exam ine into conditions on the street. City Hall Questioners to Wait Month for Replies Commissioners Poscpoae Opealasr of lafonnatloa Bureau. Vattl riasges Are Completed la Municipal office. THEY were all there, the ? ? ? T people. But Miss Marcia Burton, appointed by the City Commissioners to answer them, didn't answer. Miss Burton has been' designated by the City Commissioners to answer every little old question anyone at the City Hall wants to ask her. The time of opening the municipal bureau of in formation was set for 10 o'clock yes terday morning, but at exactly that time the Commissioners postponed the opening of the bureau one month ahead. Consequently. Miss Burton will begin telling you on September 20 whether your hat is on straight and what to do with your hair after it has been washed and whether Portland is really going to get that pennant, and what Secretary Lane really thinks about Oregon. The changes being made in the City Hall offices have necessitated the post ponement of the opening of the munic ipal bureau of information one month. Vancouver to Have Sane Fourth. VANCOUVER. Wash., Aug. SO. (Spe cial.) No longer will the small boys from Portland and other surrounding cities come to Vancouver on July 4 to celebrate the Nation's birthday by ex ploding firecrackers. They may come here to celebrate, but future celebra tions will be "on the quiet." The City Council last nlgbt passed an ordinance prohibiting the use of firecrackers at any time. ' PLAN IS QUESTIONED Mariner Advises That Track Be Kept on South Jetty. NEED IN FUTURE PREDICTED With Sinking of Enrockment More Material and Reconstruction of Trestle AVill Bo Necessary, Says Captain Nopandcr. Seeking to postpone the removal of the rails and ties from the south Jetty at the mouth of the Columbia River, which have been ordered taken up by Major Mclndoe, Corps of Engineers, IT. S. A.. Captain Nopander, of the steamer Bear, said yesterday that he had discussed a dangerous policy with a member of the Port of Portland Com mission. The equipment is to be taken to Fort Canby for use on the nortn Jetty. Major Mclndoe is absent from the city on his vacation, but he intends to remove all material that can be made useful on the north Jetty project, be ing guided by the expense of removing the material as compared with what it would cost if purchased new. Captain Nopander's argument Is that when the enrockment of the Jetty sinks. as it is expected to in a few years, it might be found necessary to build It up again, and us the piling will not be preserved the construction of an entire, new trestle would be necessary. He points to conditions at Coos Bay and Humboldt Bay as in line with what he thinks may be experienced at the mouth of the river, saying that Jetties there virtually have to be reconstructed, and that the fact the enrockment sank caused those entrances to shoal. That the Port of Portland Commis sion will not agitate the matter is re garded certain, and as Astoria interests endeavored to have more rock dumped there and took it up with Secretary of War Garrison on the occasion of his recent visit. It Is vtewed here largely In the nature of a closed subject. Cap tain Nopander suggests that letters be written by a commercial or municipal body to shipmasters plying regularly out of the Columbia and solicit their opinions as to the ultimate effect when the Jetty sinks. FINE "SPUDS" FOR PANAMA Big Trees Selected to Provide Gov ernment Dredging Gear. Aboard the Norwegian steamer Thode Fagelund. which finishes at the North Pacific mill today, are six "spuds" to be Installed on Government dredges at work on the Panama Canal that are such fine specimens they have been photographed and each step of their manufacture shown from the time the trees were felled. They were sawed by the Portland Lumber Company and two of them are 30 Inches In diameter and 66 feet long, while the four others are 24 Inches in diameter and TO feet long.

Grace & Co., which has the Fagelund under charter, is due the first week in September. She took on her first lumber cargo her a few weeks ago. She -will work piling and lumber for Panama. George Eggers, representing the Grace interests here and on Grays Harbor, Is arranging for her cargo as well as looking after the dispatch of the Fagelund.

CLOSE VOTE IS FAVORABLE Residence Property Owners Oppose Increasing Width of Burnside Street to 80 Feet, but Investi gation Committee N'amcd. In order to settle the aueation of the widening of East Burnside street from the bridge approach to East Thirtieth street a resolution favoring the widen ing of the street to 80 feet by taking ten feet from each side, and authoriz ing the appointment of a committee to assembly data as to cost and procedure, was adopted at the meeting of the East Burnside District Association yes terday held at 385 East Burnside street. The resolution was tentative in Its efTect and simply a method of starting proceedings for investigating the feasibility of the project. Chairman O. E. Helntz appointed the following committee: J. B. Harring ton, Daniel Kern. F. A- Dunham. Q. E. Welter and J. H. Page. All are property owners except Mr. Welter who repre sents property Interests. This com. mlttee was instructed to confer with the City Commissioners and to investi gate the cost and submit a detailed re port at a future meeting. The com mittee may recommend that a meeting of property owners be called to con sider the plan. Several Advocate Improvement. O. E. Helntz made a strong plea In favor of the improvement and pointed out what he considered its advantages. He declared that to mako a wide street would add double to the value of the property. East Burnside street, he said, will always be a great central street and that a new and modern bridge will be built in the course of a few years. Daniel Kern said he favored widening the street and was willing to pay the cost. George Flora voiced the same sentiments and J. H. Page said he favored the widening, although he represented 200 feet of frontage. F. A, Dunham said he favored ad herence to the Bennett plans, which were adopted by the votes of the peo ple at the last election. "Those plans call for 130 feet" said Mr. Dunham, "and I am In favor of that width. To make the street 80 feet wide would do little good. The peo pie voted in favor of making the Ben nett plans a future guide in the growth of the city, and 1 favor sticking by Op-posltlou Is Voiced. John F. Cordray, representing the residence district on East Burnside street, said he could not see how the residents would benefit. Albert Klein. property owner, spoke against the widening and said that the great ma Jority of the property owners are op posed. Several of the property owners said that they are willing to have the matter investigated and asked if a dis trict assessment could not be formed to pay for the property appropriated. The resolution favoring the widening was adopted by a vote of 11 to 9. Mr. Dunham protested against it being an nounced that the club favored the widening to 80 feet: however. Chair man Heints declared the resolution adopted as a starting point. Commis sioner Blgelow was present and sug gested that tire property owners take the matter up and decide for them selves, and this may be done. Resolutions were adopted thanking the County Commissioners and Super intendent Murnane for the "prompt and efficient" manner in which the repairs to the Burnside bridge were carried forward to completion and also in dorslng Commissioner Daly's ordinance providing for the sale of six streetcar tickets tor 25 cents. STREET WIDENING IS OPPOSED Property Owners Give Version of Burnside Club Meeting. PORTLAND. Or, Ausr. 20. (To the Editor.) A meeting was held this aft ernoon at 385 East Burnside street by the East Burnside Street ImDrovement Club, to which had been invited thotfe who own property on that thorough fare, to discuss the advisability of wid ening the street to 80 feet. There were present at the meeting 20 men. 13 of whom are owners of property on the street and seven who own no property on the street, A resolution, which had been prepared In advance, was offered. which read In effect as follows. Resolved. That the East Burnside Improvement Club Is in favor of the widening of East Burnside Btreet to 80 feet in width, and the appointment of a committee to take up the matter of starting proceedings for such widen ing with the City Commissioners." This resolution upon being put to a vote was declared carried by a vote of 11 for to nine against. The question then was asked how many of the prop erty owners were In favor of It, and upon a vote being taken it was found that but four were In favor of the widening to nine against it. One of those voting in favor of it stated that he was in favor of it only upon condi tion that the city would pay the dam age, an impossibility under the city charter.

' s I Nothing But S. S. S. Can Overcome Such Afflictions as These. An astonishing record of serious blood poisoning is daily brought to our atten tion. Enlarged lymphatic 'glands, swell ings In the neck, on the arms and legs. Varicose veins on the less, all of these are the effect of some poisonous substance collected in the glands or sluggishly held in the veins to undermine the entire sys tem or break out In chronic sores. And most if not all of these startling calami ties could be averted were the blood primed, toned, and purified in advance by that wonderful remedy known every where as S. S. S. The greatest peril Is the dally danger from bruises, contusions, the scratch of a rusty nail. Insect bites, poisoning by the house fly that deposits the germs of Typhoid Malaria, Diphtheria, and other malignant diseases. And should harmful germs infect a bruise or contusion, in stead of collecting In the glands or form ing an ugly sore or ulcer the activities of the blood keep it in subjection and quickly cause it to be eliminated. S. S. S. is a wonderful antidote. It contains one Ingredient, the active pur pose of which is to stimulate the tis sue cells to select their own nutrition and thus replace with healthy Pabulum but three property owners in favor of the resolution against 10 who are op posed to it. A protest was made by the property owners against publishing in the pub lic press that the property owners are In favor of widening the street, as it was shown by the vote of the property owners that there are over two to one against It. It is probable that fully nine-tenths of the property owners on the street are against such widening. The protest was of no avail, however, and we shall probably see in The Ore gonlan tomorrow morning an account of the meeting, stating that the East Burnside Improvement Club is in favu. of widening the street, and the reader will be led to suppose that the prop erty owners also are in favor of the widening, which is grossly misleading to say the least, for they showed most emphatically by their votes that they were not in favor of it. There is a committee, appointed by the City Commissioners, u.ider whose supervision the carrying out of t.ie Bennett plans is contemplated. Th-3 widening of East Burnside street Is one of the important parts of the Bennett plan, and any movement for the wid ening of that street should be taken up officially with the committee.
