END OF MEXICAN
Guadalajara Banker Thinks
Stable Government Soon
Will Be Established.
INTERVENTION IS POSSIBLE
A. R. Downs, Formerly of Seattle,
Says Revolution Has Cost 3IH
Ilons of Dollars Japanese Are
Flocking to the Republic.
"Mexico will have a stable govern
ment within a reasonable time." de
clared A. R. Downs, who has Just ar
rived from Guadalajara, at the Port
land Hotel yesterday. "I think It
will come within a yar. The Mexicans
will either establish it themselves or
some foreign power will do It for
Mr. Downs is a banker and land
dealer in Guadalajara. He left there
July 28. Guadalajara Is the Colonia
Seattle, a suburb settlement -of Amer
icans, some of them, like Mr. Downs,
former residents of Seattle.
"It Is not a case of "cold feet' with
me." he said. I simply had some busi
ness up here, and came up to attend to
it Besides, there has been little or
no trouble In our state of Jalisco, of
Which Guadalajara is "the capital, or
In the state of Coltraa, whose prin
cipal city, Manzanillo, is our seaport.
"Of course, there are some bandits
In the mountain districts, more of them
than before the revolution started, but
there has been no organized revolu
tion in these two state," he con
tinued. "As for the revolution Itself, It
amounts for the most part to brigand
age. Some of the leaders are men
of high ideals and purposes. Madero
was such a man a Socialist dreamer, a
good writer and talker, but lacking in
the firm executive qualities that were
needed when he came into power.
But the bulk of the revolution is mere
outlawry. A band of revolutionists will
enter a town and demand a ransom
from each business man, ranging from
tlOO to $20,000, as they size up his
ability to pay. under threat of looting
and burning the place. 8ome towns
have suffered this fate because they
could not meet the demand.
"The peons who compose these so
called revolutionary armies are able
to earn 40 or 60 centavos a day, or
about 25 cents gold, at honest labor.
Along comes a revolutionary 'general'
and offers them a peso, or nearly half
a dollar a day gold, for their services.
They become revolutionists, and. the
revolution exists, to a large extent,
because it has been found easier and
more profitable to be a revolutionist
than a working man.
"The revolution has destroyed mil
lions of dollars' worth of American and
foreign investments. It has been es
pecially disastrous to mining equipment,
railroads and power plants. A ft the
northern part of the country is in the
hands of the revolutionists. The busi
ness of the country has been paralyzed
no trains runntng. no mines working,
nothing doing but revolution. It Is ex
tremely difficult for an American to
get to Mexico City, and go by rail from
there to Vera Cruz, or to one of the
open ports on the west coast.
"Japanese are flocking to the coast.
Just before I left Guadalajara I saw
a remarkable demonstration, led by
students in the schools there, welcom
ing the new Japanese Ambassador. The
Japanese flag was carried by the stu
dents as an evidence of their friendly
feeling for Japan. People that need la
bor are encouraging the Japanese to
rome in to colonize and cultivate large
Mr. Downs believes that "Western
J.ffcxtco. like the Paclflo Coast state of
the United States, will be greatly bene
fitted by the opening of the Panama
Canal, but says that the average Mex
ican is apathetic about it. and cannot
see where it is going to help.

treated rightly he is a good and faith

mestic fixtures, household goods and
effects actually In ue."

the law becomes effective from the day
of its passage.
PUPILS TO LEARN OF CITY
Lecturers at Reed Will Tell How to

City's Money, How It Is Raised and
Spent"; "The Health of the City, It's
Conservation": "How the City Protects
Life and Property"; "The Beauty of

Qualification Made Before Missouri
Extradition Is Honored.
Only after an officer from St. Louis
had consented to take the prisoner's
wife and child along also, so that they
would not be left stranded in Portland,
would District Attorney Evans consent
to the extradition to Missouri of C A.
Stuewe. When this had been arranged,
Mr. Evans secured a parole for Btuewe
on a charge of attempting to pass a
bad check for $150 in Portland.
Stuewe pleaded guilty and was given
a sentence of from one to five years
and, a parole by Judge Morrow. He
vat rearrested Immediately by the po
liceman from St. Louis, where he is
wanted on a charge of obtaining money
by false pretenses. Mr. Evans would
have held him here had not the St.
Louis authorities agreed to take the
wife and baby East with the prisoner.

day and Monday in the way of landing
parties and fleldwork. which means the
camp features as well. Lieutenant
Beckwith said yesterday that about SO
men would make the first trip, leav
ing the cruiser Boston tomorrow and
remaining until Monday night.
The Boston's steam launch will tow
at least one whaleboat. and. while
speed Is not figuring In the trip. Lieu
tenant Beckwith thinks they will pro
ceed as far as St. Helens. Each man
will supply his own rations, sufficient
for two days, and blankets and ham
mocks will be provided. If atmospheric
conditions are not the most pleasant,
the citizen sailors will experience a
touch of sleeping on some Island with
only the sky above.
The cruiser's launch has been gone
over In advance and she will be stored
and provisioned today. The fact that
Monday is Labor day permits many of
the militiamen to enjoy the two days'
outing and the benefit of drills that
have not been as frequent as the of
ficers wish. The party will embark as
though ordered on a scouting expedi
tion and have all gear for landing pur
poses stowed on the whaleboat In reg
The desire to conduct week-end drills
at least once each month first prompted
the militia officers to suggest that the
Government recall the cruiser Boston
to the Bremerton Navy-Yard and sub
stitute for her a gunboat or other small
vessel that could be navigated with
ordinary speed down the river, and pos
sibly outside for a few hours, and in
that way the men could leave late Sat
urday and be In port again Monday
morning. That system Is worked out
with the California Naval Militia on
monthly cruises out of San Francisco
and Is said to be a most satisfactory
programme, as it gives the men actual
sea duty frequently between the an

Predicted Lower Rates and Fact
Local Harbor Two Days Nearer
Orient Than Pnget Sound,
Offered as Arguments.
In a letter to Dr. Alfred Kinney, of
Astoria, accepting membership on the
Ports of the Columbia committee,
which Is working for the speedy open
ing of the Columbia River to the
largest shtDS In the world through
completion of the north Jetty at the
mouth of the river, Charles Dodge, of
Warrenton. says in part:
"That 40 feet of water is required
across the bar at the mouth of the
Columbia is beyond question. That it
will be accomplished, and quickly, too.
Is not problematical when we take
into consideration what dredging has
done on the Atlantic The Government
has Just completed a 40-foot channel
into New York harbor; has dug and
maintained for years a 30-foot chan
nel into Philadelphia and has dredged,
or is dredging, bars to the entrances of
every seaport, on the Atlantic. That
their expenditures In this line have
been fully Justified is evidenced by tho
following report from the Department
o'f Commerce and Labor, 112, which
gives the seaport traffic of the United
States as $4,000,000,000:
" 'New York. 40-foot channel, 12.000,
000.000; Boston, 30-foot channel, S 198.

finally seek the easiest grades to the
cheapest ports. Into the largest ves
sels.' James J. Hill.
Explanation Is Offered.
"This Is an astonishing record. In
1863 Boston was the queen city of tne
Atlantic, and Philadelphia and New
York were third and seventh, re
spectively. One naturally asks. What
wrought this great change? The
answer is. water-level haul, ocean-side
seaport, land-locked harbor. The New
York Central Railroad, up the Hudson
River, through the Mohawk Valley,
along the lakes Into Chicago, taps the
products of the Mississippi Valley at
their greatest centralization point and
gives New York, over Boston. Phila
delphia and Baltimore, the advantage
of water-grade haul, as against mountain-grade
"The same report gives the traffic
on the Pacific as: San Francisco,
$103,000,000; Puget Sound. $102,000,000;
"This shows plainly that the trade
and traffic to and from the Inland Em
pire to the extent of $9,000,000 an
nually is being transshipped on the
Sound, bearing the mountain-grace
freight rate, and that this trade can
be readily regained to the Columbia
with 40 feet of water on the bar.
"The Port of Columbia nqt only has
the only down-grade haul on the en
tire Pacific Coast f rom . the Interior,
an ocean-side seaport and a land
locked harbor, but in addition Is tne
greatest fresh-water harbor In the
United States, and nearer the Orient
by two days' steamer travel than any
port on the Sound, and four days
nearer than San Francisco, and nearer
any Atlantic port by two days' travel
than Puget Sound,
Celllo Canal Held. Important.
"So much Is said these days about
the Panama Canal that the importance
of the Celllo Canal in this relation is
little spoken of. To me it means the
safeguarding of our equitable freight
rates. If the Panama were eliminated
from the question, the competition that
the open river will bring with the com
pletion in 1915 of the Celllo Canal will
lower even the present common-point
rates enjoyed by the Sound and San
Francisco, and the Columbia Harbor
will, forever determine the freight rate
to and from the interior upon the
"Freight travels by wagon ten miles
for $1. by rail 127 miles, by lake
steamer 1250 miles and by river barge
2000 miles. With the completion of
the Celllo Canal, the Columbia will
carry a heavier barge for a greater
distance than any navigable river in
the United States. ' We will, therefore,
be carrying freight on the Columbia
In 1915 In competition with the rail
roads that feed this territory at n
rate of one-half a mill per ton mile,
giving us a rate of 25 cents per toa
from Lewlston. Idaho, and a rate of
IS 2-3 cents per ton from Pasco, Wash.,
as against a freight rate now of $4.05
to the Columbia Harbor. These are
the actual effects of the economical
laws of rail and water traffic as
worked out In our Eastern possessions,
and they must work out to much the
same result upon the Pacific."

Objection Is Filed Against Proposed
ITse of East Seventeenth Street.
Property-owners on East Seventeenth
street yesterday filed with City Auditor
Barbur a Ion? remonstrance agrainst
the proposed franchise of the Portland
& Oregon City Railway Company for
an lnterurban electric line from Orejron
City to the West Side business district
of Portland. Tha line, as proposed,
would run alone; East Seventeenth
street, which fact has aroused the lr
of the residents.
Objection Is based on the fact that
the district is now well supplied with
streetcar service and that the new line,

EMPRESS CREW WINNER
stagehands Get Half of Pnrse for
Best Interior Setting.
Word was received by E. E. Barbour,
stage manager at the Empress, yes
terday that he and his crew had won
half of a 325 purse offered by J. Her
bert Frank, star of "The Arm of the
Law," to the stage crew that would
provide the best interior stage set for
his vaudeville sketch. The stage hands
of the Empress, Kansas City, Mo., win
the other half of the purse.
Stage hands of more than 50 thea
ters In tha United States competed to
win the bonus. Ernest Hood is tha
stage property man who was instru
mental In making Portland victorious.
A Dtity that Every Man Owes to Those
who Perpetuate the Race.
It is just as important that men should
know of progressive methods in advance of
motherhood, 'loe suf
fering incident to
child-bearing can be
easily avoided by hav
ing at hand a botUe
of Mother's Friend.
This is a penetrat
ing, external applica
tion that relieves all
tension upon the mus
cles and enables them
to expand without painful strain upon ths
ligaments. Thus there is avoided nervous
Epells ; the tendency to nansea or morning
sickness is counteracted, and a bright, hap
py disposition is preserved that reflects
wonderfully upon the c harder and tem-a
perament of the little one soon to come.
Ton can obtain a bottle of "Mother's
Friend" at any drag store at $1.00. It
preserves the mother's health, enables her
to make a complete recovery, and thus with
renewed strength she will eagerly devote
herself to the care and attention which
mean so much to the welfare of the child.
