Union Order for Picture Tak
ing Mot Proved.
PHOTOGRAPHER ON STAND
C. S. Woodruff Admits Sleeting
Ilend of Mus-iclans Body Be
fore Starting Campaign.
.AlfTiough there was no direct evi
dence that unions fighting the Jensen
Von llprhcrs theater interests ac
tually ordered the taking of photo
graphs of patrons emerping from the
Liberty, Columbia and Majestic
theaters, C. S. Woodruff, the photog
rapher, admitted on the witness stand
yesterday that he met with K. E.
I'ettengill, president of the musicians'
union and associate counsel with W.
f. U'Ren In the injunction hearing,
before embarking on the last phase
of the ''intensive campaign" attribut
ed to the unions.
Testimony came to a close yester
day afternoon, and after hearing the
arguments of counsel. Circuit Judge
Tucker took the matter under advise
ment. He is expected to hand down
his decision Monday.
Idea Not Original.
On the stand Woodruff admitted
that the idea of "shooting" theater
goers was not original with him. To
l,e Roy Xorr, Oregon Journal staff
photographer, he gave credit for the
Vii rt h nf thn tlai TrViiV i A c d i rl n' 1 cj
hatched before he was even notified.
He admitted meeting Petteng.ill in
the art department o the Journal at
"Here's the fellow that will do the
work," was the introduction of Wood
ruff to Pettengill, according to Wood
ruff's testimony. Woodruff said that
they discussed "current events and
stuff" but that nothing was said
about payment for the pictures and
no contract made with the union
representative. The witness said that
he recognized the plan as a profitable
one for him and that he "grabbed at
the idea," beginning his photograph
ing that afternoon.
Picture Purchasers rnknonn.
Woodruff under a searching cross
examination by Dan J. Malarkey, who,
with John F. Logan, represented the
theater owners, said he did not know
who had purchased the pictures from
him but that he knew he had a sure
pale for as many as he cared to print.
He denied that he had ever displayed
550 to Police Sergeant Oelsner with
the contention, that it was pay in ad
vance for one night's work.
"Where did you get that $50 ayou
showed Sergeant Oelsner?" demanded
"I don't think I stole it," replied
"Well, where did it come from
"Come to think of it, I didn't have
$60 in my pocket that night."
"Didn't you admit to Attorney Lo
aran in the corridor of this courthouse
yesterday that you took a $50 bill
from your vest pocket and boasted
to Sergeant Oelsner of jour earn
ings?" "I did not. I never carry money
In my vest pocket." answered Wood
ruff. "Do you think you had a right to
take photographs of crowds coming
out of the theaters over the ob
jection, of the theater owners?" asked
"Certainly, as an American citizen
I have a right to take any picture and
do what I want with it. I can take
a picture of persons and if there is
a. theater in the background that is
no fault of mine." .
Asked if he had no told Mayor
Baker that he was making $100 a day.
Woodruff admitted in part that he
had, but qualified it by saying that
he might have taken that much in
but it was not all profit. He said he
pold the crowd pictures to unknown
persons for prices ranging from 50
cents to $1.50.
Mayor Baker on Stand.
Woodruff professed that he did
not know why the unions wanted the
j'hotographs. hut conceded that the
strike might have something to do
.Mayor Baker was called by the de
fense in the morning session as wit
ness. Asked by Mr. U'Ren if it was
not true that "only union labor or
ganizations or persons or bodies that
are unpopular" were interfered with
when they scattered handbills on 'the
etreets of Portland from an airplane
end otherwise, the mayor became in
dignant. "It is absolutely false to say that
the mayor or the police department
have permitted any person to throw
anything on the streets at any time
with their permission. " he replied. "I
have instructed the police constantly
to arrest prso?is responsible for scat
tering handbills on the streets."
The mayor eaid that in a conference
with Woodruff and Jones, who sought
to ascertain their rights. Woodruff
had said that he was making $100 a
day from the sale of photographs
taken in front of the moving picture
Mayor Baker doubted that he was a
defendant In the case, saying that
while he had been a member at one
time of the stage hands' union, he
thought his membership had com
pletely lapsed. He etill held mem
bership in the bricklayers' uniorh, he
If. G. Jones, associated with Wood
ruff, was the last witness. His tes
timony was substantially that of
Woodruff, except that he did not
know anything about the chances of
Felling the pictures other than in
formation from Woodruff to the ef
fect that orders would be forthcoming
when he embarked on the venture.

BIG DANISH CARRIER
DUE HERE SHORTLY
Motorship Peru to Take On
Wheat for Europe.
COMING HELD IMPORTANT
Belief Is That Regular Commerce
AVitli Northern Europe Is to
Be Resumed Soon.
The Danish motorship Peru, now 11
days out from the Panama canal, is
coming; to Portland to load wheat and
general merchandise for Europe, it
was learned yesterday from a local
company, which will supply a portion
of the outwar cargo. The Peru will
be due here October 10.
Besides being- the first vessel under
the Danish flag to visit Portland since
before the war. the Peru will be the
largest motor vessel a-s yet to come
to this port. She has a registered net
tonnage of 3499 and a gross tonnage
of 55S4. She is 425 feet long, 53 feet
wide and 27.5 feet deep. The vessel
was built at Copenhagen in 1916.
The motorship Peru is one of 37
large motorships owned by the East
Asiatic line, a Danish company with
headquarters at Copenhagen. An of
fice is also maintained at San Fran
cisco. Who will act for the owners
here and what is the nature and
amount of the general cargo to be
laden at Portland could not be learned
yesterday. The big motor vessel left
Copenhagen August 30 and passed
through the canal 22 days later. It
is understood that she has cargo. for
San Francisco and will come here
after discharging at that port.
The East Asiatic company main
tained a service from Portland to the
Scandinavian countries about six
years ago. The last vessel of the
line to call here was the steamer
Arabia, which suffered a number of
minor mishaps here. A freight and
passenger service to Hamburg and
the Scandinavian countries Is now
maintained out of San Francisco.
Henry Harkson, Danish consul at
this port, said yesterday that he had
been supplying the home office of the
big Danish shipping company regu
larly with charts and other data con
cerning harbor facilities here in an
effort to induce the line to extend
its service to this port, and saw in
the announcement of the coming of
the Peru a promise of the resumption
of regular commerce between Port
land and the north of Europe.
Vessels of the East Asiatic com
pany now are engaged largely in the
transportation of beans from Siam to
Europe. Many acres of idle land in
Siam were colonized by Danes through
the efforts of this shipping company,
and now several cargoes of beans are
carried from the colonies to Europe

Failure to Denounce Treaties
Held to Hurt Marine. -
FOREIGN NATIONS PROTEST
American People "ot Willing to
See Tonnage Vanish From Sea,
SALEM, Or., Oct. 1. (Special.)
President Wilson's refusal to execute
section 34 of the American merchant
marine act which directs the presi
dent to abrogate those articles in
treaties which restrict the right of the
United States to impose discriminating
custom duties on imports entering the
country in foreign vessels and in ves
sels owned by the federal government,
and those articles in treaties which
prevent the government from impos
ing discriminatory tonnage duties on
foreign vessels and vessels of the
shipping board entering the United
States, has met with the disapproval
of Senator C. L. McNary, according to
a statement issued by the latter offi
"The act provides," said Mr. McNary,
"that the president shall be given 90
days to function under this section
from the time the statute became ef
fective July last. No .doubt the presi
dent's refusal to denounce these
treaties in the time prescribed by th6
statute was due to protests of foreign
nations who are profiting at the ex
pense of our commerce because of
discriminations imposed by them
against our vessels.
"Shortly after the Revolutionary
war the constitutional congress passed
an set providing for a la,rge discrim
inating duty in favor of American
ships. Under the influence of that
few American shipping grew rapidly
until about the year 1800, our ships
were carrying about 90 per cent of
the imports and exports of the coun
try. This condition continued until
the year 1S15, when congress passed
an act removing all discriminating
duties on tonnage and imports as to
vessels of other nations engaged in
direct trade whenever the president
was satisfied that discriminating du
ties obtaining in foreign nations had
been abolished. '
Law Wu Insufficient.
"It may be observed that the act
did not go far enough as it related
only to discriminations that might be
made in duties and. tonnage which
permitted the nationskto invent other
avenues through which discrimina
tions could be practiced!" One of these
profitable avenues and one which
worked heavily against our merchant
marine, was insurance, and anyone
familiar with the history of our mari
time ventures appreciates how this
agency operated at the expense of
"Practically all of our insurance was
carried with Lloyds, the result being
that the strips of Great Britain and
their cargoes were granted a lower
rate, and American vessels were re
fused rating to which they were
equitably entitled. Under the im
pulse of discriminations imposed by
other nations, our merchant marine
dwindled until at the outbreak of the
war with Germany we were only car
rying about 9 per cent of our com
merce. "Today, next to Great Britain, we
have the largest merchant marine on
