TRAIN SERVICE GUT
Each Company to Make' One
Trip Less to Seattle Daily.
SAVING WILL BE $400,000
Three Lines Operating Agree to Re
duce Xii mber of Ttnns In Effort
to Overcome Deficit and Fur
ther Reduction Is Likely.
In keeping with the policy of re
trenchment now in effect on all rail
roads, the Great Northern, Northern
Pacific and O.-W. R. & N. Company, be
ginning? next Sunday, each will witn
draw one train each way between Port
land and Seattle.
This action will effect an annual sav
ing of approximately $100,000 to these
Under the schedule that foes into
effect on Sunday the following with
drawals will be made:
By the Great Northern No. 360, leav
ing Portland at 12:30 A. M. and arriv
ing; at Seattle at 7:45 A. M.;. No. 356
southbound, leaving Seattle at 10:45
M. and arriving in Portland at 6
By the Northern Pacific No 414
northbound, leaving Portland at 10:30
A. M.. arriving at Seattle at 4:45 P.M.;
No. 433 southbound, leaving Seattle at
12 o'clock and arriving in Portland at
6 P. M.
By the O.-W. R. & N. Company No.
670 northbound, leaving Portland at
1:45 P. M. and arriving at Seattle at
8:30 P. M. ; No. 561 southbound, leav
ing Seattle at 7:30 A. AI. and arriving
In Portland at 2 P. E
- Eight Trains Left.
This arrangement otill will leave
right trains each way daily between
Portland and the Sound. At present
there are 11 each way. But it is gen
erally conceded that there is not enough
business for even eight trains. Six
trains would be enough. It is ex
pected that after the new schedule is
given a thorough trial, efforts will be
made to reduce the number of trains
to six or seven.
The new schedule still will leave the
Northern Pacific and O.-W. R. & N.
Company with a. train apiece leaving
either terminal at approximately mid
night. Business even in periods when
travel is heavy is not sufficient to Jus
tify the operation of two midnight
trains in each direction.
It is understood that tentative plans
have been suggested to both the North
ern Pacific and the O.-W. R. & N. Com
pany to enter into an agreement that
will permit tham to alternate in the
operation of theue night trains for
periods of about, three months at a
Deficit May Be Overcome.
It is pointed out that this would re
duce expenses further and enable the
carriers to operate their Portland
Seattle passenger business at a profit.
It is estimated that it costs $1 a mile
to operate a parsenger train between
Portland and Seattle. The distance is
3S5 miles. The expense for each road
therefore Is 370 daily for one train
each way, or a combined saving for theJ
tnree roaas of jino a day, making an.
aggregate of J405.150 for the year.
Seattle Trains Cut Down.
SEATTLE, Wash., Nov. 19. Further
retrenchments In train operations out
of Seattle have been arranged by -the
Northern Pacific and the Great North
ern. In addition to withdrawing one
train between Portland and Seattle,
the Northern Pacific also will withttraw
Its "Grand View" passenger service, be
tween Seattle and North Taklma, and
the Great Northern will withdraw
trains No. 447 and 448 between Seattle

ALBANY, Or.. Nov. 19. (Special.)

FAIR PLANS PROGRESS
Oregon. Building and Exhibit Being
Hushed for Opening.
Satisfactory progress in the prepara
tion of the state building at the San
Franciisco Fair was reported at a meet
ing yesterday of the Panama-Pacific
Exposition Commission of Oregon. The
TneetiBig was devoted mostly to the con
sideration of details regarding various
exhibits and the improvement of the
grounds about the building.
O. M. Clark, chairman of the Com
mission, announced that the building
liad. been accepted from the contractors
and that the work that remains to be
dorm will be completed soon.
One of' the exploitation features of
the project will be a large relief map
showing the state's leading natural re
sources. The map is being prepared
by the Oregon Bureau of Mines at the
Oregon Agricultural College.
In addition to individual exhibits of
Oregon's resources and manufactures.
It is probable that a comprehensive
.mineral display will be made. The Ore
gon Bureau of Mines will co-operate
with the Commission In the installa
tion and maintenance of this exhibit.
Members attending the meeting were:
O. M. Clark, chairman, and John F.
Logan, of Portland; R. A. Booth, of
Eugene; W. L. Thompson, of Pendle
tn, and C. L. Hawley. of McCoy.
STATE GETS RIGHT OF WAY
Secretary of Interior Gives Land for
SALEM, Or., Nov. 19. (Special.) The
right of way for the canal and reser
voir of the Tumalo irrigation project
has been approved by the Secretary of
the Interior, according to information
received in the office of State Engineer
Lewis today. ,.
The canal and reservoir were built
some time ago, but right of way across
Government lands has heretofore been
refused on the grounds that the state
is not a canal or ditch company and
therefore cannot obtain the benefits of
Federal right of way laws.
' The Desert Land Board appealed from
this decision through the Attorney
General, and the notification just re
ceived confirms the state's contention
that the Carey act itself carries with
it the authority for a state to obtain
right of way over Government lands
in accordance with Federal laws and
LIBRARY TAX TO BE ASKED
Finance Committee of Institution
Announces Need of Funds.
That the Library Association of
Portland will ask for the levy of a
.5 mill tax for the county library has
been determined by the finance com
mittee, of which W. M. Ladd is chair
man. The law prescribes that- the county
library shall receive .5 of a mill of the
annual levy providing the association
officers think that amount is required.
Last year only .45 of a mill was needed
by the association, but the work has
increased so rapidly that the full
amount will be appropriated for the

tax will take care of the expenses of

PASCO, Wash., Nov. 19. (Special.)
The City Council met last night and
passed several ordinances which, if not
vetoed by the Mayor, will make several
reductions in the salaries of city em
ployes for the coming year. , The City
Clerk's salary was reduced from $85 per
month to 25. The City Attorney was
cut from $75 to $50 and an attempt was
made to reduce the salary of the City
Treasurer. One man was laid off from

omy plan was discussed. .During the
coming year, as the saloons go out of

Canadian interests are being put on - the

Markets Are Holding Steady.
Including the quantities already floated
and the contracts yet to be filled, 15,000
tons of oats have been disposed of to Eu
ropean a-overnments so far, and more will
The Northwestern crot was only. 60 per
cent as large as last, year's, and when it is
remembered that all of the big 1913 crop
was disposed of. , the future of the market
certainly looks good to the oats growers
in this section. With the home consumption
more than sufficient to take care of the
smaller quantity produced this year, the
added war demand from Europe can hardly
do otherwise than make a higher market,
Oats stocks In the country are much re
duced. Only a few points in Eastern Wash
ington have any considerable supply, and as
far as the Willamette Volley is concerned
all the oats there will, no doubt, be needed
by farmers. . It Is estimated that only five
to ten per cent of the crop left In the North
west is in farmers' hands. '
The future ot the barley market is also
satisfactory. Foreign inquiries are agalu
coming in and shipments to Europe are ex
pected to be resumed. Early In the season
barley exports were liberal, amounting alto
gether to 454.893 bushels, but for the past
two months none have gone forward. The
Eastern states are also looking to the
Northwest for barley supplies. Large quan
tities of California barley have gone to the
East through the Canal, and the bids for
Northwestern barley are now close to the
point where business can be done. Bariey
Is well sold up In Eastern Washington, and
it Is said onlv 30 per cent of the crop Is
left in the three states.
In snlte of these conditions oats and ba
ley prices now are not much above normal,
whereas wheat prices are 3o per cent above
the average, owing to the European war de
mand. Tradma- on the local exchange yesterday
was limited. Five thousand bushels of De

prices did not vary greatly from those of

a large mill buyer on the floor.

NEW YORK, Nov. 10. An unexpected re
versal of the definite plan to reopen the
stocK Exchange on Saturday for trading in
bonds was the most noteworthy Incident In
tne financial district today. Reasons given
for the annulment dealt mainly with the
unpreparedness of certain large bond and
Investment houses to meet the proposed sit

mestic sources. '
It was significant nf the situation as a

Further advance in copper and lead sug

although the home consumption continued
at low ebb. Reports that several railroads
were negotiating for new equipment, includ
