TIIE MOKNTNO OREGOXIAX, MONDAY, MAY 26, 1919.
84 YEARS OLD TODAY
Veteran Mariner Talks About
49 YEARS SPENT ON SHIPS
Days When J. Kamm Gave Passen
gers Free Whisky and Ride to
Beat Competitor, Recalled.
Ho steamboated from 1855 until 15
Tears ago. He took the first steamer
to Lewiston, Idaho, when the first
tent had not been erected there. He
came down on a flood river from Ore
gon City to Portland In 47 minutes, and
had the engines of his vessel tuned up
like a Swiss watch so that In the Wide
"West he made the run from Astoria to
Portland in 5 hours and 2 minutes.
He crossed the plains in 1852. He
worked under and swapped jobs with
the late J. K. Kamm. He took the sec
ond boat into the Fraser river from
Portland -a little stern-wheeler, which
drew only 12 inches in ordinary serv
ice and 18 inches on that run. Marshall
street is named after him. He is 82
years of age today.
"With that introduction, let it be said
that it is now in order to wish "many
happy returns" to Captain John Mar
shall known on the waterfront and up
and down the coast as "Johnny" Mar
shall Captain Marshall Hale.
At present Mr. Marshall is living in
Portland. He retains his interest in
steamboating by being president of the
Newport Transportation company,
which connects the city of that name
with the railroad.
Bright as a pin is Captain Marshall.
Steamboating must be the elixir of life
if he is accepted as a fair specimen.
Those with whom he crossed the plains
have all passed beyond. His "tillicums"
are no more. But, hale and hearty.
Captain Marshall looks forward to cele
brating his diamond wedding anniver
sary next year.
North Beachers remember the good
old T. J. Potter and her resplendent
cabin. Did you know that cabin was
lifted from the old fast river steamer,
the Wide West, and put on the Potter?
Race WKk Boat Won.
Folks who use the Lurline! Her
cabin has been in duty since 1878.
And here's a bit of news for persons
"Who think that the present fare to Ore
con City is higher than it should be.
Just before Captain Marshall began
steamboating between Portland and
Oregon City the fare was 5.
"So I decided to walk," said Captain
Marshall. "I got to the Clackamas and
took my clothes off and tied them over
Tny head. When 1 got to the middle
the water was pretty swift, and I had
about decided to go back, but I kept on.
Then I saw the Oregon City boat, with
the passengers all tailing on to a rope
hauling her through the rapids, and I
beat the boat into Oregon City on foot."
It used to be common comment that
the late J. Kamm, principal owner of
the old Oregon Steam Navigation com
pany, predecessor of the old O. Tt. & N.,
was what Harry Launder calls "care
ful." Whisky Carried on Steamer.
"But he was never stingy when it
came to his steamers," said Captain
"I remember, one day we had oppo
sition and the fare to Oregon City had
dropped to 'four bits' a ton for freight
and 'two bits' for passengers.
"Jakie came down to the landing.
" "How much are we charging now,
George?" he said to George Hoyt, the
purser. George, you know, was the
uncle of Ralph Hoyt and the father of
George Hoyt, in the Northwestern Na
tional bank. George told him.
"Well, It's worth that for the
freight,' said 'Jakie'; tut the passen
gers take themselves aboard. Carry
them for nothing.
" 'And, George, have you any whisky
"George stammered a little and got
almighty red. Then he admitted that
he had a quart aboard that he kept for
his own use.
Career Began at Age of IT.
" 'Oh. I don't mean that," said Kamm.
'Send Frenchy, the mate, to the Star
Distillery and tell him, to get a five
gallon demijohn, and give every passen
ger a drink, as well as carrying him
And that was the way that Mr. Kamm
put the independents and their steamer
the Rival out of business. Captain Mar
Captain Marshall began his business
career as the biographers say at the
age of 17 as a fireman. He was pro
moted to engineer before they issued
licenses. He got his steamboat license
even then before the civil war. He was
then assistant engineer and Mr. Kamm
was chief, later succeeding Mr. Kamm
in his position. Captain Marshall en
gineered the first stern-wheel boat on
the Columbia, the Enterprise.
Captain Ainsworth, father of J. C.
Ainsworth. was skipper of the Jennie
Clark, which he cajoled into running
along in '58. Captain Marshall contin
ued actively until 15 years ago when he
quit the Oklahoma and the Harvest
Queen because he was tired of night
There's many a. yarn that Captain
Marshall can tell of the days that are
gone. For he is one steamboatman who
never expects to see the riverboats back
in their prime.
LAST HULL ABOUT READY
GRAXT SMITH-PORTER WAYS AT
ABERDEEN' TO BE CLEARED.
Launching This Week of Barge Aca-
media Will Bring Present Pro
( gramme to Its Final Close.
ABERDEEN, Wash., May 25. (Spe
cial.) With the launching of the barge
Acamedia at the Grant Smith-Porter
yards some time during the week, the
ways of that shipyard will be cleared
of all hulls.
The Acamedia is the 15th vessel built
tinder the 16 contracts entered into
m-ith the emergency fleet corporation,
the 16th keel not having been laid
when the cancellation order was re
ceived. The Acamedia at that time was
but a shell and the order was made to
change from a steamer to a barge.
The Ferris-type steamer Abydos,
launched at this yard about two weeks
ago, is ready for towing to Seattle,
where she will be placed alongside a
number of other government hulls.
The force at the Grant Smith-Porter
yards, which at one time was 2000 men.
now is about 200, and will be still fur
ther reduced when the barge is
launched. The future of the yard is
uncertain, though it is expected that
shipbuilding will continue there.

Shipyard workers of Portland local
No. 38-A8 are out with a demand not
only that investigation of the work

that a majority of any investigating
board taking up the inquiry be union

meeting Saturday night.
The resolution reported by K. D. Ger

"Whereas, It appears that the several
unions and the central labor council of
Portland have joined in supporting the
request made by the attorney that the
workmen's compensation law be investi
gated with the commission that now
has the administration of the law in
;,"Vhereas, It appears that the law as
now administered does not protect the
workingmen and women, especially
those working on the navigable waters
of the United States; but is adminis
tered for the benefit of corporations
solely. Xow, therefore, be it
"Resolved, That t his union joins the
several unions, and the central labor
council in their request to the governor
of Oregon that he order an investiga
tion as urged, and that the persons
making the investigation shall be com
posed of a majority of union labor
members, chosen by vote of the union
members Ihemselves, to the end that a
real investigation may be had, and rot
the semblance of one, and to the end
that labor may be protected and the
law administered honestly for its bene
fit and not otherwise."

TRIBUTE IS PAID TO
Memorial Day Services Held in
OCCASION IS SOLEMN ONE
Spirit of Thanksgiving Also Is Evi
dent Because War Had Been
Won; Mass Meeting Held.
A reverent memorial service for the
soldier and sailor dead was observed
yesterday morning at Trinity Episco
pal church, the preacher being Bishop
Paddock, of the diocese of eastern Ore
gon. The congregation was a large
one, and the worshippers included re
turned soldiers in uniform and cadets
from Hill Military academy.
The rector. Rev. Dr. Morrison, an
nounced that while the service was
primarily in memory of the four sol
diers belonging to Trinity parish who
had died in military service in the late
war, that the service also was in
memory of all soldiers and sailors of
the United States army and navy who
had sacrificed their lives in that war.
The names of the four soldier boys
from Trinity parish who died in the
war against Germany are:
CHARLES E. McDON'ELL,
RANSOM S. ANDEKSU.N,
Prank Wilder was an artillery offi
cer who was killed in battle In France.
Charles E. McDonell was formerly a
choir boy in old Trinity church, and
he died in a military camp in the east.
Bishop Paddock created a mild sen
sation when he announced in his ser
mon that he had "learned about God,
from the soldiers whom he met in
Prance, near the battle line." Biuhop
Paddock is the son of Bishop John
Adams and Prances Chester, and has
been under church influences all his
"One year ago, I had the privilege
of going to France," said the bishop.
"I feel that I am one of the luckiest
men alive because I went there. For
a while. I was near Brest and it was
then a pretty bad camp, but now, it
is a model one. It is all right to wish
that our boys yet in military service
over there ought to be sent home, but
if they are ordered to remain a little
while longer to finish the job. we as
Americans are men enough to approve.
"It was a blessed experience to try
to help the boys over there, and I tried
humbly to follow in the footsteps of
Jesus Christ when !ie waited upon his
followers. Sect and cult are not re
garded much over there. We met and
talked as man to man in the shell-torn
woods, and often in an old shack. One
soldier whom I knew to be a former
cowpuncher in eastern Oregon leaned
against a tree end asked: "What Is your
idea of God?" Nobody laughed at him.
"I will admit before 1 went to France
I didn't learn about God directly from
the church, or from you, my good peo
ple. Maybe you triad to teach me, but
I didn't then grasp it. But I did learn
about God over there. Among those
soldier boys I caught his spirit. Those
boys really descended Into hell In those
front line trenches. When they were
ordered to go over the top and did so,
and when, as it often happened, enemy
shells tore off their limbs, these boys
smiled and said: 'It doesn't hurt very
much." as they went into the other life.
At such moments cults did not matter,
but God did.
"When we first went over there good
people in this country sent word to us
not to gamble, not to swear, not to be
licentious. Remember, yeu in this
country lived in your quiet homes, pro
tected by your wlve3 and children. If
poor fellows over there did succumb
to temptation far away from home in
fluences what would you have done if
you had been in their place?" The bish
op concluded by an appeal for divine
help in these latter days of recon
struction. After the choir had chanted the fu
neral psalm, "De profundis." from the
130th Psalm, "Out of the depths have
I cried unto thee. O I-ord." Bishop Pad
dock prayed for dead soldiers and sail
ors and tyo cadets from Hill Military
academy, Harold Dagg and Wallace
Smith, called from their bugles, "Taps."
HONOR 3IEX WHO DIED, PLEA
Bishop Walter Taylor Sumner Gives
Sermon at St. Stephens.
Bishop Walter Taylor Sumner spoke
yesterday morning in Pt- Stephen's pro
cathedral. He said: "This week we will
celebrate two memorial days one of
religious and the other of a secular
nature, but both important and both
highly appropriate for observation. I
refer to Ascension day, which comes
next Thursday and Decoration or Me
morial day. which falls on May 30. It
is highly desirable that in the observ
ance of Memorial day we should com
bine the spiritual side and with the
flowers we strew for those who have
gone beyond this world we should offer
"Protestantism has made a mistake
In setting up compartments, one con
taining the living and the other the
dead. We all know and should remem
ber 'there is no death." In the prayer
books we should not have prayers for
the dead. We should remember those
who have passed to everlasting life.
There is no, death." repeated the bishop.
"We should not feel that we have
lost our dear ones, soldiers or others
who have left this earthly abode.
Knowing they are with God. we, to,, can
be with him and them. They are not
lost to us. God never takes away that
which he has given. Let us thank God
they are ours and pray that we may be
worthy of them.
"Iet us honor the men who fought
In the civil war. Let us place the
wreaths and garlands for them and
give to God the prayer and thanks
giving that we have the sweetness of
their memory and tho Inspiration of
their lives. Let our prayers be that
they may rest in peace and that we may
live rightly. Let us thank God for the
men who went to the front In this great
world war which, please God, Is at an
"Let us reverence those who went
forward in battle with their God-given
strength and as they went over the top,
and maybe to their death, let us pray
they went not in vain so far as we
are concerned and pray that we may
have strength to go forward."
Bishop Sumner predicted that the
spiritual awakening that will come as
a result of this war will be one of the
greatest of benefits. He stated that
men have come face to face with real
ities and that God and faith have be
come a part of these men's lives. The
bishop urged the parishioners to ob
serve Ascension day next Thursday,
when there will be a service at 7:30
A. M. at St. Stephen's.
GOD POWER IX GREAT WAR
Rev. E. H. Pence Pays Tribute to
C S. Fighting Forces.
"Lincoln's Gettysburg address prob
ably was the greatest utterance eince
the Sermon on the Mount, said Rev.
E. H. Pence yesterday in his sermon
on "Memorials of Stone and Senti
ment." He continued:
"Memorial day has been set aside for
Americans so we never shall forget the
sacrifices made for America and for the
world. Today there are in France many
resting places which are most dear to
the homes of America. The last four
years have seemed like a labyrinth to
me. During July, 1914, when I was in
England, until the time when I tried to
get out of England and sail for America
on August X of the same year, until
November 11 last year, most of us were
In somewhat of a haze. No one ever
dreamed of the resources of human in
genuity developed during those four
years. Yet God worked through it all.
God won't allow us to forget the sacri
fices made during that time.
"It was a wonderful four years. In
which America jumped from a heavy
debtor nation to the greatest creditor
nation of the world. It was a dangerous
hour for America when she made the
great plunge Into the conflict. I want
to live long enough to read what the
historian will say when he writes, as
write he must, that God permitted
America to grow strong that she might
be permitted to swing her great arm
for right and save the world. I am
proud of America, as all of us must be.
Her morale is great now, but it took
time to show her that she had It In
her and didn't know it. When I made
my first war drive talk in a high
school on the west side I was almost
heartsick at the results, the progress
I was making. I couldn't stop the
giggling going on In some sections by
that first talk, but when I found that
the truth and the awfulness of war had
to be brought home to us directly, I
found when I made a talk some time
later In that same high school I got
the attention of everybody In the assem
blage. "Generals have said that 90 per cent
of a soldier is his morale. It's the
essence, the concentrated quintessence
of the man. The trouble with the Ger
man soldier was that he didn't know
he had any morale.
"Then, I say, we cannot forget the
fidelity of the boys. Earl Kitchener
said generals wouldn't win the war. but
the private soldier would. He said the
war would last three years and he was
laughed at, but it did run four. And
over it all and through It all the hand
of God directed. George Pattullo In a
popular weekly magazine recently wrote
an article on "Who Won the War.' I
hope you all read It; if you didn't it
is well worth while. He says he talked
with many a general on the field of
battle and afterward, men who had
little or no religion, who admitted that
Uod won the war."
"Let us not forget we cannot forget
this Memorial day."

Dr. Francis Burgette Short Pays Re
spects to Hero Dead.
Nationalization of the United States,
with the English language universally
spoken throughout the land as an es
sential to citizenship, with the spirit of
Christianity and the uplift of mankind
In the hearts of the peoole, and Amer
ica for Americans, were the central
thoughts in the morning sermon of Dr.
Francis Burgette Short, pastor of the
Wilbur Memorial Methodist Episcopal
church at the Hotel Multnomah.
It was a special memorial service at
which members of the various posts of
the Grand Army of the Republic were
present, and large American flags were
the features of the decorations. Grand
Army posts present in a body were
Lincoln-GArfield, George Wright and
"The league of nations does not Inter
est me half as much as tho national
ization of America." said Dr. Short,
whose text was: "In the name of God
will we set up our banner. Shall Amer
ica be American, my brothers of the
Grand Army of the Republic, or shall
America be pan-European?"
As the speaker paused, there were re
sponses from the groups of civil war
veterans, some of them clad In their
suits of the old army blue, of "Amer
ican!" and applause of appreciation for
the sentiment rippled through tho con
gregation. 'Shall we foster the spirit enunciated
In our declaration of independence or
shall we forsake those high and lofty
ideals: or shall we go to that other
extreme and try to join the spirits of
Mad Anthony Wayne and George Wash
ington, the spirit of graft and corrup
tion with that of Lincoln, and extract
therefrom what that kind of a combi
nation is capable of producing? You
have an example of it over there In
Russia. Speaking as one who descend
ed from the loins of a hero of the revo
lution that gave to the world this gov
ernment of the people. I say give us an
America that is American.
"Did you know that there are In this
country five million foreigners who
speak one hundred and twenty dialects
and languages other than English:
that there are even in our western
states whole communities that do not
think enough of tho country to learn to
speak its language? Did you know
that there is now a sect being colon
ized on lands in tho state of Delaware
that refused to permit its men to serve
In the army because they claim to be
"Delaware is my native state, and If
nothing happens to prevent, I am going
back there next month and I am going
to tell the officials of that state that in
my opinion the state should not permit
land to be acquired for a colony of per
sons who do not believe in supporting
th"ir country. (Applause.)
"I believe that America needs to re
consecrate herself to the task of mak
ing a nation that is respected not be
cause of her power but because of her
sense of rigl-t. and that we ought to
make it uncomfortable for foreigners
who have no respect for our country
except to use us and to live with us.
I believe firmly in America for Amer
