DAYS
Carl R. Gray, president of the Union
Pacific system, will arrive in Port
land this morning to represent his
line's interests at a conference that
will bring- io this city high officials
nt various railroads now using the
local terminal facilities centering at
the Union station. They will meet
Thursday in the office of J. P. O'Brien,
rice-president and general manager
of the O. W. R. & N., for the purpose
of adjusting: differences between the
so-called Harriman and Hill proper
tics for Joint usage of th terminal.
William Sproule, president of the
Southern Pacific system, will reach
Portland from his headquarters In
San Francisco, probably tomorrow.
Others who will be here include L. C.
Oilman, viee-presideirt of the Great
Northern, Seattle: Charles Donnelly,
president of the Northern Pacific St.
Paul; Judge George T. Reid. vice
president of the Northern Pacific, Ta
coma: William F. Turner, president of
the. Spokane. Portland & Seattle, with
headquarters in Portland.
Just how long these officials will
lie here is not known, but it will prob
ably be a few days, as the problems
coming up for adjustment involve not
only their own interests, but the city's
as well, and the state public service
commission and interstate commerce
commiFsion are also Interested on
lookers. How to adjust their affairs so as to
accommodate trains of the Great
Northern and the Spokane. Portland
& Seattle lines an a permanent fea
ture, is the direct question to be
settled. A truce was recently ar
ranged between the two roads named,
which are non-member tenants of the
Northern Pacific terminal company,
ijnd the Southern Pacific and Union
Pacific systems, tenant members, who
hj ordered the two out of the yards
December 31, 1920.
Because of the fact that it was felt
the city should have a union terminal
station for freight and passengers, the
city, through Mayor Baker, became
Interested in the subject and a com
mittee was named, consisting of the
presidents of civic clubs, to investi
gate the situation. Then the stata
commission was cailed in and finally
an appeal was taken to the interstate
commission and a date was set for
hearing, when the truce was called
at the request of the railroads.

American Humorist.
Mark Twain, with his potter to
amuse and at the same time srir pro
foundest thought in his readers, at
tained a position that perhaps jio
other American writer will reach in
this generation, in the opinion of
Rabbi Jonah B. Wise, who spoke on
America's Great Humorisu" last
night at B'nai B'r'th hall.
Rabbi Wise included Benjam'n
Franklin, Washington Irving. Arte-
mus Ward, Joaquin Miller, Bill Nye
and Bret Harte in appre'iat've
sketches of lead'ng humorists, but
dwelt largely on Mark Twain.
However freely Mark Twain might
ndulge in humorous allusions. Rabbi
Wise declared he never failed to
grasp the deeper facts of human
nature, and hs works are a great
deal more than merely entertaining.
