The men had been pulling flax on
the farm of C C. Russell. 19 miles
north of Salem. The truck came Into
Salem on Capital street, and as It
reached Union street, the locomo

IJcharf said be did not hear the whistle
of the locomotive, and the engineer
said he did not see the automobile
nntil It waa toe late to avoid a colli

and the locomotive struck the front
part of It.- It was turned around, but
not overturned. The occupants were
thrown and Jumped In every direction.
The men most seriously hart were
tossed nnder the locomotive, which
was brought to a standstill almost

Superintendent Minto hastened to
the wrecked truck and assisted In
taking the Injured men from tha loco

were taken in Ills car to tbe Peniten

sary. They were attended by Dr. R.

they had a good chance for recovery.
Althonsh all the convicts on the
truck either Jumped or were thrown
from It when the collision occurred not
a man tried to escape. Instead the con
victs aided the guards and enrtsetr and
fireman In extricating the injured men.
Mr. Minto said the prisoners did fine
service In helping those that were In
jured, and praised them highly.
Accident Called Unavoidable.
-I hardly see how the accident could
have -been avoided.' said tbe superin
tendent of the prison. "1 heard the
locomotlva whistle, but the driver of
the truck could not hear It because of
the noise made by hla engine. When
he saw the engine It was too late to
avoid a collision. He did the best he
could by swerving his machine to the
left. The locomotive, slowing down,
hit the front part of the truck and
turned it almost around. All the men
Jumped or were thrown from the truck.
Some fell under the locomotive, and
ethers Jumped clear of It.
I realised that the accident waa seri
ous and the guards and myself hurried
to get the Injured from under the en

More than seven were hurt, but the
others Injured sustained minor cuts

all the men will recover. No arms or
less were lost and the most serious in
juries are of an Internal nature.

SEAftfS BILL HELD
TO BE VITAL ISSUE
Next Presidential Campaign
Will Hinge Upon t, Says
Herbert L Satterlee.
FINANCIER VISITOR HERE
War Danger to Tlrls Country Held
to Be Create After European
Conflict Ends Than While
It Is Still in Progress.
"It Is my sincere belief that the
Issue upon which President Wilson
will be re-elected or defeated -.will be
the position he takes with reference
to the La Follette seaman's b'll." This
Is the statement of Herbert Satterlee.
eminent attorney and financier of
New York City, and son-in-law of the
late J. Pierpont Morgan. .
Mr. Satterlee, accompanied by his
wife and their two daughters, was in
Portland yesterday on his way East.
They have been on the Coast for pleas
ure alone and arrived yesterday from
We are essentially an agricultural
people," continued Mr. Satterlee. "and
many of our products cannot be
shipped with security unless a mer
chant marine be developed. Capital
designated for the development of an
American merchant marine has been
tied with the passage of the seaman's
bill. La Follette caused our chances
for development in that line to be
Impaired when he introduced the bill
Into Congress, and President Wilson
killed them when ha signed it. And
the shipping of our goods to foreign
markets, especially at this time. Is
of vital importance. The sooner the
people of the United States demand a
repeal of the La Follette bill the bet
ter It will be for the entire country.
And the men of Congress will not see
the necessity ,of its repeal until the
people make them see it.
"The best way of explaining the
situation in which the United states
Is placed with the lack of a merchant
marine Is with the use of a simile.
Supposing the biggest department store
in your town depends on transfer com
panies to do the delivering of its sold
merchandise. Then supposing that
tha trani-fer men who are bidding; for
the delivery work start to fight among
themselves. The result Is that the
department store is forgotten in the
fight and lef t .without means -of get
ting its groods to the people. Uncle
Sam Is but a big business man and the
United States is only a big business
concern. The war has left us without
means of transportation of domestic
manufactures to the ports of the world,
and the seaman's bill has killed the
possibility of a merchant marine be
Repeal Campaign Under Way.
A campaign has been started In
the East by the Chambers of Com
merce for calling a special session
with a view to having the LaFollette
bill repealed and I hope the same con
dition exists In the West."
When asked to give his opinion as to
the stand that the labor councils have
taken in their commendation oi tne
seaman's bill Mr. Satterlee said:
"The laborer works during the week
for the pay-check that ho Is to re
ceive at Its close, and the farmer does
his harvesting and forgets about his
crop when he has received the bill of
lading or tne receipt tor xne storage
of his grain. What becomes of the
manufactured article or the larm prod
ucts neither the laborer nor tne
farmer cares about after it has left
his hands. But Uncle Sam has to
make the delivery of the manufac
tured articles and the grain to ports
of the world, and so It should be his
concern and not the conoern of labor
whether the United States should nave
a merchant marine."
The question of the war was
broached. "Of course war with Ger
many or with England Is a possibility.
but I think that the only way in wnicn
the United States would be involved
would come after the European trouble
was settled. The countries that are
now fighting wll. after peace is de
clared, be terrlbry burdened with debt.
Their earning power will be decreased
and their taxes will be Immensely in
creased. Where will the money come
from? It will have to come from na
tions that are not now Involved. China
and the United States will be the most
Immediate sources, and China and the
United States are both rich and pow
erless. Co what will be the result?
Determine It for yourself.
Country Is Unprepared.
"W are totally unprepared for war.
We have a gallant army but it is small.
We have an efficient body of naval
officers, but our Navy is totally in
