FOR EXTRA SESSION
Only One-Third of Members
BUCK PASSED TO GOVERNOR
Many Are Silent as to Whether
'ev Legislation Should Be Sub
mitted After Ratification.
SALEM. Or., Aug. 6. (Special.)
Twenty -four re preeenta Lives and 11
senators, representing slightly more
than one-third the .combined strength
of both houses of the legislature, have
written Governor Olcott regard ing a
special session to ratify the woman's
suffrage amendment to the federal con
stitution. Of these legislators Representative
A. A. Smith of Baker is the only one
who has come out openly in opposition
to the session. Although with one or
two exceptions, the members have
agreed to waive mileage and salary and
attend, not a few of them have refused
to make any pledge whereby their work
would he confined strictly to consid
eration of the sugrage amendment. In
several instances! hey refer to alleged
defects in the Roosevelt highway law
and other, legislation passed at the last
session of the lawmakers and express
a deeire that these acts be corrected.
Buck Pa kmc d to Governor.
A number' of the legislators, after
agreeing to waive mileage and salary
and confine their work to ratifying the
suffrage amendment, conclude by stat
ing that if the governor considers "the
proposed session of sufficient impor
tance to issue a call they will attend.

back to the governor.

suffrage amendment to the federal con

to belittle the importance of the ques
tion at issue." is the opinion expressed
by M. V). Shanks, senator from Gilliam,
Sherman and Wheel or counties, i n a
tetter received at the- executive offices
here todny. .
-Frankly. T believe that the matter,
of ratifying the suffrage amendment is
of sufficient importance to justify the
calling of a special session, but I also
think that if it is of sufficient impor
tance to justify 90 members of the leg
islature giving up their time and
monev to go to Salem at their own
expense, it is. of sufficient importance
to justify the expense of the session
beng borne by the state at large.'
Senator F. H Torter of Linn county
writes: I supported the suffrage
amendment to the constitution of Ore
gon and have been gratified with the
results. I believe that suffrage should
be adopted nationally. If the special
session was for the purpose of correct
ing errors made in legislation passed
at the last session.of the lawmakers, I
would be in favor of them paying: their
own expense,' but since it is a new
proposition. I believe the- state should
defray the costs of the session."

IS SUICIDE AT SEA
Famous Caterer, in 111 Health,
ADVENTURE FEATURES LIFE
Coast-Wide Prominence -. Won by
Operations at San Francisco; Bab's
Restaurant Opened ln Portland.
James H. Babcock, former manager
of Bab's restaurant in Portland, and
known from coast to coast as a caterer
and restaurant manager, brought his
eventful life to a dramatic rloee on x)f
about July 21, when he flunif himself
overboard from 'the steamer Westobla,
a short distance oft the coast of Spain.
Xews of the death of Mr. Babcock
was brought to Portland yesterday by
Charles StewarU assistant steaward of
the Westobia, and lifelong friend of
the nationally known caterer.
Mr. Babcock, who was chief steward
of the vessel, became mentally unbal
anced at sea. For his own safety he
was put in irons and .placed in an im
provised cell of heavy timbers. A few
days out from Spain, on'the return voy
age to New i ork, attendants unlocked
the cell door to take Mr. Babcock out
for a shave. Breaking- free from his
attendants, he ran to the. chip's .side
and. threw himself forward into the sea.
Mr. nabcock tioea Down "With Irons.
Weighted down with the heavy Vons,
Mr. Babcock sank rapidly, and all ef
forts to save him were futile, "Mr. Stew
art asserted. Mr. Stewart saw Mr. Bab
cock sink for the last time. : '
Mr. Babcock left Portland about three
months ago for the purpose of benefit
ing his health. He was confined to a
Portland hospital for several weeks last
winter, after suffering from- a. broken
leg. it was to regain his strength that
he took a berth as a ship's steward on
the Westobia at New York.
Mr. Babcock showed .signs of a men
tal breakdown a short time after the
ship had been at sea." The first inti
mation came when he told the- ship's
skipper that he Intended building a
million-dollar yacht, safd Mr. Stewart,
and wanted the skipper to serve as his
captain, r rom then on his mental con
dition is said to have become worse
until it reached a point where It was
necessary to put him in irons and con
fine, him for his own safety.
Fortune Made In Catering;.
''Bab," as he was known from New
York to Alaska, was an adventuresome,
romantic fellow, filled always with, the
wanderlust In his younger days he was
a steward oi the old Clyde steamship
line running' from New York to Oalves
ton. - He made a smill-sized fortune
in catering and at the time of the Klon
dike gold rush he and a sea captain
put a large sum Into a - vessel laden
with '.supplies for the Alaska . gold
fields. The ship was wrecked off Cape
Hatterfas, but, undaunted by his Hi for
tune, Bab continued on, And remained
,in Alaska for several years, where he
amassed a small fortune. "
- Coast-wide KamcWon. .
Later 'he returned to New York, and
for several years operated the famous
Bartholdt restaurant' at Twenty-third
and Broadway, opposite Madison Square
Garden. At one time he operated three
places at San Francisco, where the
name, "Bab's," - won him coast-wide
Mr. Babcock came to Portland nearly
two years ago to become steward at
the Multnomah . Jiotcl.' He remained
there a few months and then brought
about the organization of a stock, com
pany which opened Bab's restaurant
at 326 Stark street.
He was steward and manageF of this
restaurant at the time he broke his leg
last winter, but the accident kept him
confined to his apartments at the Ore
iron hotel for several months. The res
taurant is still being conducted by the
stock company, under the direction of
A. Walter Wolf.
; Death, ew Confirmed.
Arthur H. Johnson, who had known
Bab for years, says that he was one
of the best known caterers in the coun
try. Charles E. Kector, owner of the
famous Rector's, in New York, once
told Mr. Johnson that "Bab" Us the best
caterer who ever lived.
- A. ""Walter Wolf, of the etock co
pany operating; Bab's restaurant, said
yesterday that he had just reoeived
word that Mr. Babcock- had drowned
himself at sea. Two sailors and a ship
carpenter from the Westobia had giren
the same information as that brought
by Mr. Stewart.
Mrs. Babcock, who served for a time
as cashier at the restaurant, is now at
San Francisco, having left Portland at
aboot the time her husband went to sea
Mr. Babcock was 46 years old.

"With tho Bik creek fire in the Whit

an active patroi employed to prevent
its further spread, the situation in the
