Union Pacific's Claims Are
Backed by Witnesses. .
Chamber of Commerce Commit
tee Told That Road Across
State Is Essential.
Yesterday was the Union Pacific's
day before the unmergercommittee
of the Chamber of Commerce, which
(held a hearing- on the proposal to
unscramble the Central and South
ern Pacifies, with special reference
to Oregon's interests as they will be
affected by the ultimate disposition
of the ; Central Pacific property.
Groups of witnesses from Central
Oregon, and Astoria represented to
tbe chamber committee that it will
best for the state if the Union
Pacific takes control of the- property-
Yesterday's was the last sched-
veled hearlner bv the committee.
However, Carl R. Gray, president on
the Union Pacific has telegraphed
the chamber he expects to be in
Portland during the first week in
August and wants to meet the com
mlttee at that time. The commit
tee will reserve its report until Mr.
Gray shall have an opportunity to
be heard, after which recommenda
tions will be forthcoming. This is
expected to be within the next two
Many Witnesses Heard.
H. B. Van Duzer, chairman; Na-
Mian CtvnniiB Tn ' DmxrAio ' flanpa'a
X Lawrence Jr. and C. D. Brunn
were members of the committee
present at the hearing.- Before them
appeared William Hanley, Burns; J.
W. McCulloch, president, and W. H.
Doolittle, secretary, of the Central
Oregon Development league, both of
Ontario, and J. H. Prouty, Kogert D.
Pinneo and W. H. Bartlett of As
toria, the last two officials of that
port, and E. A. Hardesty of Seaside.
William Hanley opened the dis
cussion with a general statement
based upon the plea for a solution of
the railroad problem of central
Oregon. He said it was immaterial
to his section of the ' state which
railroad crosses the central Oregon
plateau, but it is vital to its devel
opment that rail transportation be
afforded. He held it unlikely, un
less the Union pacific were inter
ested directly in- the Willamette
valley region, that it would sanction
another east and west line across
Oregon, but considered it-probable
that' if the pass through the Cas
cades followed by the projected
Natron cut-off were to be placed
under Union Pacific control, that a
road across the state would fol
League President Speaks.
President McCulloch of the Cen
tral Oregon league, which has
. pledged itself to the Union Pacific
side of the controversy, told the
committee most of the central Ore
gon countries have . joined ' the
league and membership is constantly
being extended. Some counties have
not yet acted bn 'the uiimerger
question, although their vote is ex
pected to be given shortly. He
said the league was organized to
present the case of eastern Oregon
on the unmerger, and it proposed to
follow it through and carry it be
fore the interstate commerce com
mission if that step became neces
Mr. McCulloch expressed the opin
ion that unless the Union Pacific
could acquire the favorable pass
through the-Cascades to Eugene oc
' cupied by the Natron cut-off, it
would be years and years before an
east and -west line across the state
could be hoped for. He said central
Oregon had a great area of 40,000
square miles practically without
transportation and that big irriga
tion projects and timber develop
ment are alike waiting upon .the
building of railroads.
Statement Is Confirmed.
Secretary Doolittle of the league
made a similar statement.
The Astoria group made the pro
posal it was the opinion at the
mouth of the Columbia, that Port
land should stand with the Astor
ians for Union Pacific control, since
that company was the main reli
ance of western Oregon for heavy
through-traffic, and-it was only fair
that the, company should be encour
aged to extend its operation
' throughout the state.
Astoria interests have already
adopted resolutions, supporting
Union Pacific claims, and Mr. Hard
esty said a similar meeting, with
like action, is expected at Seaside:
the present week.

OME of the very best pictures
of the season are opening en
gagements in this city today.
The managers evidently have won
their fight against the producers
for an early releasing of the big
fall features. -
The record-breaking production,
The Storm," is being held over at
the Columbia theater. It is in
finitely worth while. House Peters
is the featured, player, meritoriously
supported by Virginia Valli and
Matt Moore. Portland is the second
city to get this feature.
Manager Pangle showed rare
judgment in booking King Vidor's
big production, 'The Real Adven
ture," featuring Florence Vldor.
This feature is idealistic in theme.
It is decidedly different, inspiring
and immensely worth while. Vidor
does not turn out a picture every
week, but when he does produce, it
is worthy of attention.
Thomas Meighan in "If You Be
lieve It, -It's So" is at the Liberty
theater. This sterling production
a worthy successor to , "The
Miracle Man," which lingers so
pleasingly in memory. The Liberty
is putting over one big hit after
another. And Manager Paul Noble
is still lining up additional tre
mendously interesting, attractions.
Oscar Wilde s famous story, "A
Woman of No Importance," is the
attraction at the Majestic. This
feature has attracted great atten
tion where previously shown. It
is a new release, and would have
been played here sooner only that
the bookings previously arranged
for by Manager Lacey prevented its
being put on earlier.
The Rivoli has a big attraction in
"Out of the Silent North," in which
Frank Mayo is featured. Thia will
undoubtedly, prove to be the third
big Universal hit in rapid succes
sion in this city 'The Storm," 'The
Delicious Little Devil" and now
"Out of the Silent North." which
Iras won unstinted praise from all
who have viewed this excellent
production. ' j
The Circle has John Gilbert, a
Portland actor, in the singularly
interesting feature "Arabian Love,"
which .was a 'pronounced hit when
previously shown in this city. That
will open Sunday. Today the Circle
is showing the uproariously funny
comedy, "Is Matrimony a Failure?"
Screen Gossip. .
The Rivoli has booked for an
early showing Guy Bates Post in
'The Masquerader."
Charles W. Beyer has completed
his work with George Arlies in

ing the trial ot tne two men on
charges of manufacturing and pos
sessing bogus money.
Goldstein, immediately after the
arrest of the prisoners, beat the gov
ernment in a race for Owen s suit
case. It was in this grip that the
officials expected to find the in.
criminating dies. When the suitcase
was turned over to secret service
men by the lawyer no dies or coin
moulds were found.
Brown and Owens, both drug ad
dicts, were arrested last. May after
police . detectives, had , shadowed
them, following the appearance of-a
number of counterfeit dollars and
quarters. Owens, who admits two
convlctios and two terms in peni
tentiaries, is a middle-aged man.
The' other is an 18-year-old youth.
According to the evidence intro
duced by the , government, Owens
manufactured the eoln, then sent
Brown about the city to dispose of
the product.
A mysterious individual, "the
Angel Kid," was used as an alibi by
the . two prisoners. According to
their story, it .was "the Angel Kid"
who-manufactured the coins, then
slipped them in thfe pockets of the
pair for some unknown" reasom The
fact that no prior mention of the
unknown had been made in the case
was explained by Owens by the fact
that he would not inform on any
one. The jury, which retired for de
liberation on the case at 5 o'clock
last night, will return a sealed ver
dict at 10 o'clock this morning.

Abolition of the practice of giving

the ancient established custom is
favored by the Rev. Dr. Charles

Dr.- Slattery has prepared the fol-
