A. Jj. Craig Attends Passenger Meet

An exodus of prominent railroad officials
from Portland has been the feature of
the-week in traffic circles. It is exceed
ingly rare that so many of the prominent
railroad men whose headquarters are lo
cated In this city are absent at the same
time, and the circumstance has created
a great deal of comment along Third
street, where the railroad offices are lo
cated. Of the higher railroad officials General
Passenger Agent A. I. Craig, of the O. R.
& N., Is now in Chicago, attending a
meeting of the Transcontinental Passen
ger Association, and looking after other
details of railroad work. He has been ab
sent for a week, and is not expected to
return until July 1.
Somewhat of a coincidence Is the fact
that Allen Cameron. Asiatic representa
tive of the O. R. & N. and Portland &
Asiatic Steamship Line, came "West from
Chicago about the time Mr. Craig left

pioneers before for 20 years. He is look
ing forward to the reunion with great
pleasure, and anticipates having a very
pleasant time in recounting Oregon ecenes
and experiences of the days long past.
Among other things he Indulged In some
regrets, as he spent a little time with
Secretary Hlmes at pioneer headquarters
In the City Hall. Soon after his arrival he
established a sawmill on the Clackamas
and rafted the lumber, which was used
in the construction of some of the first
frame houses In Portland, for which he
received $150 per thousand. His conscience J
does not sting him for that, however; but
he is sorely .trpubled when Jie recalls the
fact that he was at one time offered 160
acres of land, now in the heart of
this city, for 5000 feet of lumber. Mr.
Simpson's conscience troubled him a good
many years ago becauee he let that op
portunity slip; but now, as he sees pres
ent conditions, with the future prospects
in store, after an absence of a score of
years, he is more sorely distressed in mind
than ever. Mr. SImpeon was born in
Tennessee in 1S18, and hence is now in
his 86th year, but aside from somewhat
impaired sight he is in good condition to
survive a good many years. Henceforth
he will make his home in Oregon, sd that

Meeting of Sons and Daughters.
At the second annual meeting of the
Sons and Daughters of the Oregon
Pioneers, held In the Courthouse last
night, the following officers were elected
for the ensuing year: Judge M. C. George,
president;' Mrs. I. TV. Pratt, secretary;
Mrs. B. D. Hamilton, corresponding sec
retary and treasurer; board of directors.
Judge M. C. George, F. V. Holman. Judge
J. C. Moreland, John TV. Mlnto, Mesdames
Bessie M. Teal, L W Pratt, Henrietta
Falling, Louise Myrlck and Harriet B.
The question regarding eligibility to
membership arose. Mr. Minto moved, that
as during the past year no effort had
been made to increase the membership
the board of directors be authorized to
appoint a committee of three to solicit
subscriptions during the coming year, and
that the charter membership list be kept
open and the membership fee of $1 be un
changed. The board of directors appointed
Mesdames E, D. Hamilton and C. N. Mc
Arthur and George H. Hlmes as mem
bers of tho soliciting committee.
Tho society will make an effort during
the coming year to increase its member
ship. At the present time but few of the
eons of pioneers are members, the greater
part of the membership being made up of
tho daughters of the old settlers.
Pacific Monthly for June.
Portland's pet periodical, the Pacific

"Springtime in the Willamette Aralley"
and "The Counties of tho Willamette,"
two articles descriptive of Oregon's gar
den spot. These articles are profusely

Milwaukee attending the meeting of the
general freight agents of the country.

are of particular Interest to Coast points.
There have been under discussion for
some time propositions for the reduction
of freight tariffs to Coast points in line
with the efforts of freight agents to en
courage the movement of Eastern prod
ucts to the Coast. These matters are of
particular interest to Portland and other
