THIRD COAST LINER
Harriman Company Will Put
Newport on 'Frisco Run
TO HEAD OFF OPPOSITION
Steamer Which Has Been on the Pan
ama Route Will Hereafter Run
in Conjunction With Colum
bia and Geo. W. Elder.
SAX FRANCISCO. Jan. 2L-(Special.)-The
Pacific Mall Company's Panama liner
Newport, due here from the Isthmus Feb
ruary S, will be replaced oxv the Southern
run by the Costa Rica, -which will take
the Newport's place February 18.
The Newport Is going on the run be
tween this port and Portland. She -will
run In conjunction with the Geo. W. Elder
and the Columbia, It being expected that
the additional travel and Increased freight
business between the two ports as the
result of the Lewis and Clark Exposition
will warrant putting on an extra boat.
The Newport is one of the best of the
Panama liners and will be missed on the
Southern run, but It Is said that within a
U w months the Pacific Mail Company will
have two new vessels added to the fleet
running between here and the Isthmus.
The Information contained in the San
Francisco dispatch could not be confirmed
at the local office of the San Francisco
& Portland Steamship Company, but there
Is good reason to bellcvo that It is true
that an extra steamer will be put on the
run between Portland and the Bay City.
Travel will certainly be very heavy along
the Coast during the Fair, and the two
steamers operated by the company cannot
be expected to handle all the passengers
that will want to patronize that line. An
other ractor has probably caused General
Manager Schwerln to increase the service
and that is the competition that has lately
sprung up. As long as small steam schoon
ers were his only rivals, he took no steps
to head thom off. but how that the North
Pacific Steamship Company has put on
the big liner Roanoke and Is prepared to
Increase Its fleet, things are different.
This doubtless accounts for the determina
tion of the San Francisco & Portland
Company to put on a third steamer so
long In advance of the opening of the
The steamer Newport was built at dies
ter. Pa., In 1SS0 by John Roach, the builder
of the Columbia and the Geo. W. Elder.
The Newport is 326 feet long. 3&5 feet
beam and 6 feet depth of hold, and is
of 1S0S tons net register. She is 16 feet
longer than the Columbia and 76 feet
longer than the Elder.

bacco. flour and wheat. The steamer will
linlsh loading at the O. R. & N. dock at
The flour shipment is one of the lightest
that has been put aboard a China steamer
here for many months, which is due to
the depressed state of the flour market on
the other side. The shipment, however,
amounts to 12,000 barrels, valued at 54S.OOO.
The flour is billed for Shanghai, Yoko
hama and Hong Kong. There are 3950

Kosmos and Chilean Lines Profit by
Exclusion of Pacific Mail.
SAN FRANCISCO. Jan. 2L Simultane
ously with the notice of the proposed ab
rogation of the Pacific Mall contract for
exclusive traffic with the Panama Rail
road at Panama, comes the news that
the Kosmos Steamship Company Is to en
ter the freight business between Panama
and this city. This is the German line
of steamers now engaged In business be
tween Germany and South American and
Ventral American ports and San Fran
cisco. News has also been received here that
the Chilean Navigation Company is to
enter the Central American business via
Panama. This company has a line of
Fteamers between Panama and South
American ports. At one time it ran ves
kIs as far north as this city, but finally
"withdrew from north of Panama because
the Pacific Mall's exclusive contract pre
vented It from handling any business for
the Panama Railroad north of Panama.
Shipping circles here think that the Chil
ean company will eventually Tesume busi
ness at this port and also at the Pacific
jicrts of Mexico in addition to handling
Central American shipments to and. from
Europe, by way of Panama.

Trustees of Green and Ogden Estates
Find Bad Muddle.
NEW YORK, Jan. 21. Executors and
trustees of the large estates left by Wil
liam B. Ogden, Mariana Ogdcn and An
drew H. Green are reported to be unable
to lay hands on records of transactions In
connection with the properties during the
last two years. Funds amounting to some
thing less than $200,000 are said to be un
accounted for. Efforts to find the private
secretary and confidential man of Mr.
Green have been unsuccessful. No charges
have been made against any person, but
the trustee executors are stated to have
issued a large number of subpenaes for
clerks and others in the hope of securing
some light on the matter.
Assistant District Attorney Appleton. at
whose rooms appeared some of those
served with subpenaes, refused to say
why the witnesses had been summoned or
what It was hoped to gain from them. He
would neither affirm nor deny that there
had been a defalcation in the Green or
Ogden estates, or both.
Andrew H. Green, whose life was ended
in 1903 by a negro who had mistaken him
for John R. Piatt, was trustee for the
William B. Ogden estate, which owns
great tracts of real estate In the upper
section of the city.
William B. Ogden was the president of
the Chicago & Northwestern Railway, and
later of the Chicago. Milwaukee & St.
Paul Railway. He was one of the earllst
Mayors of Chicago.

Word Received That He Can Have

Atz at Short.
Manager McCrecdle has completed his

ho can sign Schlafley. This means that
Manager McCreedle's " infield is complete
and the line-up will be: Doyle, first base;
Schlafley, second base, while Runkle,
who Secretary Farrell says Is not tied
up with the Pacific National League be
cause that league is dead, will play
third. Atz, for whom lrve Beck was
traded, will be at short, and this makes
an Infield that will be hard to beat In the
This infield would Indicate that Mc
Crecdle is going to surround himself with
a ball team that will surely give a good
account of Itself this coming season. For
Schlafley. Manager McCreedle is reported
to have traded Pitcher Ham I berg and
Outfielder Kelly. This Kelly Is not Mike
Kelly, of the St. Paul team, but his
brother. It is also understood that Eddie
Householder has been drafted from the
Columbus team. Householder was a mem
ber of the Brooklyn team when McCreedle
was. He, liko McCreedle. was shifted to
Baltimore, but was not satisfied and Joined
the Los Angeles team of the Pacific Na
tional League. TVhen that league went
to pieces. Householder joined the South
ern League and was afterward drafted by
Columbus. Eddie Householder Is well
known to the fans that keep posted on
ball players. He Is an outfielder of con
siderable ability and one that Is sure to
make good In the Coast League.
Just what will be done with Morris
Steelman. whom Rochester claimed. Is not
known. Since Steelman has received his
salary from the Portland club in full,
Rochester has no claim on him and ho
naturally enough belongs to Portland.
Manager McCreedle has another catcher
signed from Chicago, and these two back
stops will have to fight It out for first
position behind the bat. A3 the pitching
staff now stands it Is made up of Butler,
Thlelmun. Esslck and Jimmy St. Vraln.
St. Vraln, for a time, wore a Tacoma
uniform, and while he may not be able to
pitch championship ball, he Is a shade
better than the average pitcher.

Wholesale Dry-Goods Men'sComplaint
NEW YORK. Jan. 2L At the closing
session ot the Wholesale Dry Goods As
sociation's annual meeting there has been
protracted discussion on the custom of
direct sales to retailers by manufacturers
and commission merchants. Twenty
prominent New York commission mer
chants and representatives of mills took
part in the discission.
Before the Jobbing question came up
the association considered the report of
committee appointed to go into the
subject of the extension of the parcels
post system of doing business. Much op
position was expressed toward any ex
tension of the parcels post, and it was'
decided that managers ot the association
should lay the views ot the wholesalers
before their local representatives.
Discussion of tho middleman was then
taken up. Papers were read by repre
sentatives of these Interests declaring
that many large manufacturers, including
those represented through the large com
mission houses, who are absolutely de
pendent upon the Jobbers for the great
snare oi tneir Dusmess as it is conauctea
at present, have so little regard for thoso
that are their best customers that they
arc selling many retailers, the natural
customers of those same Jobbers, at prac
tically the same prices.
Widespread formation of syndicates in
the smaller cities, whereby the local mer
chants pool their orders and deal directly
with the manufacturers, also was con
demned. When the talk was over, no
rules were proposed, but the meeting In
dorsed suggestions made In various pa
pers and the members of the association
expressed the belief that thu practice ot
the manufacturers would be less preva

AGREE ON SOME THINGS
BRYAN TALKS POLITICS WITH
Warmly Welcomed at White House
He Approves Republican Policy
Toward Railroads and Trusts.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 21. W. X
Bryan called on President Roosevelt
at the White House today. Ho was
cordially greeted by Mr. Roosevelt, as
well a3 by a number of Republican
Senators and Representatives who
happened to be In the executive office
at the time of his visit.
Tou are certainly looking- well, Mr.
Bryan," said Senator Cullom, of Illi
nois, as they shook hands.
Tes, but I am a little too fat. I
could spare you some of my flesa,"
said the Nebraskan, as he looked at
the thin form of the Illinois Senator.
"Well, you are growing," remarked
Senator Cullom. "In fact, you are
growing' In more ways than one,"
whereupon Mr. Bryan smiled, and af
ter a few more words with Senator
Cullom, walked into the offices.
Before he could get to the Presi
dent's doorkeeper. . dozen people
stopped him and shook his iiand. Mr.
Bryan was ushered into the Cabinet
room, which was filled with people.
The President was engaged in an ad
joining? room with Senator Proctor,
but as soon as he learned that the
noted Democrat was In the Cabinet
room, went to 'aim and grasped hla
"Come in here," said tho President,
who piloted Mr. Bryan into his private
room, where, joined by ex-Senator
Jones, of Arkansas, they remained for
five or ten minutes.
At the conclusion of the interview,
Mr. Bryan said to newspaper report
ers that his talk with the President
had been cordial and satisfactory and
that they had discussed several mat
ters. 'It wa3 a pleasure to commend hla
attitude on some things." said Mr.
"Not on. all things, then?" he wag
"No, of course not," said Mr. Bryan.
"I believe in speaking well of any
policy that Is good, regardless of what
party is supporting- It. I have often
been accused of being- a Populist,
merely because I have given my sup
port to some things advocated by that
party. I suppose I will now be jxcused
of belnff a Republican, because I agree '
with President Roosevelt's views on
some things. I think the President 13
unmistakably right In his demands as
to railroad legislation, and I told him
so. I also think Mr. Garfield, of tho
Bureau of Corporations, Is right in
recommendinff that corporations bo
required to take out Federal licenses.
I likewise believe in an income tax and
hope to see it brought about."
""How can it be brought about?"
"By a constitutional amendment."
Mr. Bryan suggested.
Mr. Bryan said he would leave
Washington tomorrow night and go to
New York, where he Is scheduled to
attend two banquets.
