Tor the flrst time In the history of the
Northern Pacific it will today begin run
ning four regular passenger trains a day
on the Pacific division, and three through
trains a, day between Portland and the
East. For the past three years it has
been the custom of the company to dis
continue the North Coast Limited during
the "Winter season, resuming it in the
Spring. The resumption has not meant
the addition of another train to the sched
ule, but a readjustment of train sen-ice
that transformed several short runs into
a through one. One of the trains that
have been running the past "Winter has
been partially Burlington. This Spring
the restoration of the North coast lim

SURVIVAL OF FITTEST RAILROADS.
J. J. Hill Says There Is No Com
munity of Intercut.
CHICAGO, May 3. "I believe In the sur
vival of the Attest in the railroad world,
the same as I do in all nature and affairs
of men. It Is the natural law, and its
operation is as inevitable as the origin of
This Is one of the things that James J.
Hill said In response to a question regard
ing his opinion of the Government's at
tempt to control railroad rates through
the medium of injunctions Issued by tho
United States Circuit Court. The con
nection between the reply and the subject
was soon made plain by the celebrated
railway magnate and financier. He ex
plained that the Injunction method of
attempting to cure the evils that afflict
the tiafnc and transportation world wa9
simply a subterfuge and a futile attempt
to arrest the progress of the natural law
of the survival of the fittest.
'Has not the community of interests
effectually arrested the operation of that
law?" was asked.
"There Is no such thing as the commu
nity of interests. That is the merest rot
and twaddle, originated and employed by
the press of the country. The only com
munity of Interest that can or ever will
exist is the community of Interest between
the shipper and the railroads. No, that
community of Interest is not receiving
its fullest exemplification, but it will so
soon as the law of the survival of the fit
test shall have had its sway in the railroad
Asked what he thought of legalized pool
ing as a panacea for rate ills, Mr. Hill
"Pooling is Infamous, Infamous in any
form. It never brings about the end
sought, and it is simply one of the sub
terfuges of which I speak to hinder the
operation of the inevitable law of nature
and the universe." t

. Lumber Shipments Via Billing!.
ST. PAUL. May 3. The Great Northern

necessary for the shipping of lumber and
shingles over that line from Pacific Coast
points to territory reached by way of
Billings. Mont, It has been practically
decided that the tariffs governing such
shipments shall become effective Monday,
but agents have been notified to make no
quotations until word Is received from the
The effect of the new arrangement will
be to make all points competitive and

DENVER, May 3. The Mercantile Trust
Company has filed application in the Fed
eral Court for foreclosure of the mortgage

pany advanced 5500.000 for the railway.

terest from March, 189S, to the present
time. The road extends from Boulder, 23

Sne for Bis1 Damages.
NEW YORK, May 3. Suit has been
brought for $250,000 against the New York
Central & Hudson River Railway Com
pany by the executors of the estate of
William Leys, of New Rochellc, who was
killed In the Park-avenue tunnel wreck.
The executors say they expect to collect
the money, "because Mr. Leys' salary was
$30,000 a year. This he earned, according
to the lawyer, as superintendent of a
large dry goods house of this city, and
since he was still In his forties, they think
he might have continued to earn this
salary for 10 years or more.

MEIER & FRANK COMPANY
GROCER MUST BE PAID.
Hereafter Short Credits Is to Be the
Retail grocers have resolved to enforce
short credits. They held a meeting last
week and decided to proclaim It to all
men that no bills vrlU be permitted to run
longer than SO days, plus three days of
grace. When credit la given to people
who earn weekly salaries they shall pay
their bills weekly. The verbatim resolu
tion of the retail crocers Is as follows:
"Whereas, The Produce Merchants' Pro
tective Association has recently limited
tho time of credit allowed retail grocers
to weekly settlements; and,
"Whereas, The wholesale grocers, fol
lowing along similar lines, have contracted
the time of credit heretofore given; there
fore be it
"KesilYed, That on and after May 1, 1MI
the retail grocers of Portland will not ex
tend credit for a period exceeding 30 days,
and when credit is so extended bills must
be paid within three days of the expira
tion of the credit limit; be It further
"Resolved, That when credit 13 extend
ed to those receiving weekly compensa
tion, weekly payments will be collected."
At the same meeting the retail grocers
decided to work for a state law enforcing
weekly credits and weekly payments. To
this end the co-operation of the Federated
Trades will be sought.
"Grocery bills are the last paid of any,"
lamented a retailer yesterday. "Many
people think it smart and righteous to
stand oft their 'grocer. But we are no
longer going to bo stood off. even at
Christmas time, when presents must be
paid for first, or at moving time, -when
the expressman must get his money be
fore anybody else. Doctors and under
takers. ar preferred creditors compared
with grocers. There is nd justice in this,
because if it were not for the good grocer,
the doctor and the undertaker would have
got some people long before."
The retailers are planning "rb forget all
their troubles at a picnic which they will
hold about the last of July.
CYLINDER HEAD BLEW OUT
Accident oh Steamer Metlalco Injure
Charles R. Hall.
A cylinder head blew out on the steamer
J Mctlako yesterday morning, and struck
Charles R. Hall on the leg. As. the re
sult he Is now confined In the North Co
lumbia Sanitorlum with both bones of his
leg broken and the flesh frightfully
bruised and scalded. Two ugly cuts one
above the knee and one laying open the
ankle joint, will disfigure his lesr for life.
and probably leave him with a stiff ankle.
Hall is a mining man, and lives in
Denver, Colo. He left there about a year
ago, and during the past year has been
in various mining districts of Montana.
He boarded the steamer Metlako yester
day morning at 7 A. M., intending to
go to Cascade Locks. When they were j
about five miles beyond Vancouver the j
accident happened, and he was brought
back to Portland, reaching the Sanitorlum
about noon. Hfs leg Is In a distressing
condition. Both bones are badly splin
tered, and the flesh was cooked by the
steam. The cut above his knee lays the
bone bare for several Inches. The lower
cut, which opened the synovial cavity of
the ankle joint, Is the most serious, as
It is sure to leave a stiff ankle. The doc
tors hope to save his leg, but fear It
will be badly crippled. His suffering has
been Intense, but last night he was rest
