DATA ON WOOL RATE
. Portland traffic officials of the
transcontinental lines are preparing
data they will present at the coming
series of hearings in the northwest
before Examiner Beach of the in
terstate commerce commission on
proposed reductions of wool rates
from I'acific coast points to eastern
First of the series of meetings will
be held at Boise. Idaho, next Mon
day. This will be followed by others
at Salt Lake City August 4. Los
Angeles August 6, San Francisco
Ausust 9, Portland August 11 and
Spokane August 13. Portland offi
cials will participate in the three
hearings at Boise, Spokane and Port
land. It was supposed that Clyde B.
AitchLson.. of the interstate commerce
commission, who is in Portland at
present, would preside at the hear
ing here August 11. but it was said
yisterday plans had been changed
anil he would not do so.
Competition Is Cited.
The series of hearings come about
as the result of an application of
the trans-continental lines to the in
terstate commerce commission to re
duce eastbound wool rates in order
to meet competition of steamships
operating through the Panama canal.
The present rate on baled wool in
carloads from Pacific coast terminals
to Atlantic seaboard points is $1.66
per lvo pounils and the rate asked is
$1.35. The water rate is now 90 cents.
It is proposed by the railroads to
carry higher rates from interior
points, based upon the local to ter
minals plus the through rate from
.terminal points to eastern destination
where such combination is lower than
the direct rate from the point of
origin of the business, therefore the
transcontinental freight bureau and
the interested carriers have petUioned
the Interstate commerce commission
for relief under the long and short
haul clause of the act to regulate
commerce, known as the fourth sec
tion. Some Protnt In Made.
There was some protest against the
contemplated changes from interior
shippers and the commission there
upon set the hearings. , Traffic offi
cials of the railways will show that
the commission approved the same
kind of an adjustment in 1912, when
the carriers were given fourth sec
tion relief so that the rate structure
would not itself be changed basically
This 1912 adjustment is still in ef
feet today, subject to the advances
that have since been put in. The
officials will also claim there is now
too wide a variance between the water
and rail' rates on wool between the
two coasts, with the result that the
greater part of the movement at pres
ent is by water.
Today Commissioner Atchison will
hold a hearing in the old postofflce
building on the plaint of the Empress
Coal company, which operates mines
near Centralia, Wash., against the
Eastern Railway S? Lumber company,
seeking to have that line declared a
common carrier to. obtain favorable
rates over that line in connection

Northern Pacific from its mines to

Statement That Physical Powers

TACOMA. Wash., July 28. (Spe
cial.) Conflict on the subject of what
part of a man's body passes to the
next world when he dies, broke out
at the Pacific Coast Theological con
ference here today. Professor J. M.
Shaw of the Presbyterian college of
Halifax, X. S., read a paper in which
he declared the physical body is res
urrected. Numerous delegates chal
lenged the statement and declared

superintendent, who eaid it would be
unfortunate to spoil the convention
by a clash between the two schools

conference, the delegates voted down

Professor Shaw had read his paper
on "The Resurrection" when the
skirmishing began and appeared to
threaten a split between the two fac

abandonment of the debate.
The placing of Professor Shaw on

doctrine, was to some degree for the

STRIKE OUTCOME IN AIR
Much Declared Dependent on
Miner Meeting in Seattle.
OLTMPIA, Wash., July 28. (Spe
cial ) The outcome of the coal strike
in Washington will depend consider
ably upon the attitude taken by the
members of the miners' unions who
are delegates to the convention of
district 10, Federation of Miners of
the united Mates, which convenes in
Seattle Monday, said Director of Labor
and industry Clifford today.
There is no tendency on the part of
the mine owners to force an open shop
fight, said Director Clifford, and the
feeling between the men and the op
erators is good. The trouble, accord
ing to Clifford, lies in the fact that
the head of the national federation is
taking an uncompromising attitude.

As the time draws near for the
Oregon senators -,o make publ'c their
slate for federal appointments, the
air is surcharged with rumors. Ac
cording to th's sort of information
the appointments are to go about as
United States marshal, Clarence L.
Hotchkiss of Portland; collector of

Oregon City; prohibition director. Dr.
L'nville of Yamhill; surveyor-general,
Francis Toomty of Portland;
collector of customs. Asa Thomson of

fact that Senator Stanfield said the
list would be public by August 1, and
the further fact that the appointments
will be made before congress ad
journs, which may be any day now.
Senator to Stay Kant.
Senator McNary is not coming to
Oregon during the summer. At least
this is the information which he sent
in a letter to a Portland friend. The
senator said that there is so much
work to be done that he will have to
remain in the east. If this plan is
followed, the senator will not be
bothered by disappointed office-seek
ers. as he would be if he returned
home when congress adjourns.
According to a letter said to have
come from Senator McNary, the sena
tors have agreed to recommend Dr
Linville for prohibition director, and
Jesse Flanders- will remain in his
present place as prohibition enforce
ment officer. The appointment of
Dr. Linville is also said to carry with
it the retention of Ed Wolf, demo
crat, in the prohibition office.
Wires Are Kept Hot.
