EFFEGTOFSTRIKE
Government Building Is
One Which Suffers.
ITriS THE CENTER OF FIGHT
Work on Other Structures Not
Hindered.
AMERICAN FEDERATION ACTS
It Practically Decides to Boycott the
Big Lewis and Clark Exposi
tion Because of the
Labor Troubles.
The strike at the Fair grounds was
practically confined yesterday to the
Government building'. "Work on all the
structures under way on the main por
tion of the grounds was continued with
full crews except at the American Inn,
where less than half the former crew
was at work.
The fight -1b now centered on the Gov
ernment building and against J. E. Ben
nett, who has the contract for this un
dertaking. He had fully 400 men at
work on the structure, all but a very
few of whom quit Friday morning.
Practically non6 has returned. He
has, however, secured, mainly through
the efforts of the employment bureau
eet up In the Administration building,
between 60 and 70 men who will go to
work Monday. These are said to be
competent men, capable of doing the
difficult work on the roof of the build
ing. "With makeshift crews one truss was
erected on the building yesterday. Some
good men have been secured to work
on the roof, and a crew Is being trained
which can do the hoisting.
What Strikers Claim.
The strikers, however, are confident
that they cannot be replaced. They
claim that the kind of men capable of
working to any advantage at great
heights are hard to secure, and that
they will succeed in preventing any
from coming "nore by telegraphing to
other cities from which they might
come.
So far as the rest of the grounds are
concerned the strike can hardly be
claimed by the strikers to be much of
a success, though they still have the
advantage over the Government build
ing. Considerable time will be neces
sary there to form crews capable of
doing the work at anywhere near the
same speed as that done by the men
now on strike.
Interest In the strike xias increased
a great deal among local unions within
the past !ay. It has become obvious
that If this strike fails, all hope of
union recognition and a "closed" Fair
Is gone. The local branch of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor has decided to
discountenance the Fair to the best of
its ability by preventing the exhibit of
that organization to be shown here. A
threat not to exhibit here has been held
over the heads of the Fair board by
President Gompers, of the American
Federation of Labor, ever since an ef
fort has been made to "close" the Fair.
Hop to Keep Workmen Away.
The strikers have been gathering
.at 66 North Sixth street continually
planning methods of cutting off outside
workmen who might come here and
for holding their own ranks intact. As
to the latter they have effective wea
pons In the $25 fine charged to those
who go back to work and blackballing
from the union. The leaders of the
strike are almost constantly in confer
ence at the Sixth-street headquarters
and a majority of the men are posted as
pickets at the various gates to the Ex
position. There they discourage new
men from seeking employment and
keeping old men from returning. Their
means are peaceable enough, but they
have dissuaded many men from apply
ing for work, though about 100 sought
employment yesterday and obtained It.
The employment office will remain
open and applicants, union or nonunion,
will always be able to obtain work
until the full quota of men Is secured.
Bennett's men on strike were paid
off at the Administration building yes
terday and their badges taken away.
Men on strike yet who do not belong
to the Government building gang are
comparatively scarce.
JUDGMENT AGAINST 2TUEDERER
Father of Girl Who Was Killed
Awarded Damages.
Judge Sears yesterday held that
Gaetano Quarascia, administrator of
the estate of his daughter, Freda Guar
ascia, who was murdered by Frank
Guglielmo. should recover $1226 dam
ages from Guglielmo for the estate
of the girl.
Guarascia previously sued Guglielmo
to recover for the services of Freda,
who was 16 years old when she was
killed. The father was entitled to the
value of the girl's services from the
time of her death until she reached her
majority. 18 years. The court allowed
lilm $600. It is doubtful if Guglielmo
has enough property left to satisfy
this last judgment, as much of his
estate has gone to defray the expenses
of his trial. Guglielmo is confined In
the County Jail, awaiting a second sen
tence of death upon the scaffold, which
will be pronounced as soon as a man
date from the Supreme Court affirm
ing his conviction is received.
.MAY CHARGE PERJURY NEXT
Result of the Inquiry Into Alleged
Bribe-Giving.
"The statement made by Robert
Wakefield and C U. Berry that I gave
G. B. Thomas, business manager of the
Lflbor Press and member of the Port
of Portland Commission, $600, Is false,"
says J. B. Bridges, "and I will prove it
bo. He received the money from Wake
field through Berry, the bookkeeper."
Charges of conspiracy and "perjury
will probably be made with District
Attorney Manning by Bridges accus
ing Berry, who was the bookkeeper for
Wakefield & Bridges at the time of the
building of the Portland drydock, as
the middle man, and Wakefield as the
principal. Thomas will also be charged
with having conspired with Wakefield
arid 3erry to accusw Bridges, and
Wakefield with "having made false af-
ccavits. District Attorney Manning
iLposal
awaiting final proof before he will act.
Bridges insinuates that other charges
concerning other firms might be made
against Thomas.
He Is Wanted In Los Angeles.
Sheriff W. A. White, of Los Angeles,
will arrive in Portland this morning
with requisition papers from Governor
Pardee, of California, for Robert A.
Condee, who Is" wanted In the City of
the Angels to answer to a charge of
embezzlement. White will have to ob
tain an extradition warrant from Gov
ernor Chamberlain before he can take
his prisoner away, and William M.
Gr.egory, attorney, who represents
Condee, says he will oppose the Cali
fornia officer's attempt.
Condee is held at the present time
on a fugitive from justice warrant
issued by Justice Held.
Sues to Foreclose Mortgages.
Frank Whittler has sued Maria A.
Smith in the State Circuit Court to
foreclose a mortgage on lot 2, block 47,
Portland, for $4000, executed April 1.
1S96; also J2C92 interest, $4211 taxes,
and $1449 interest due on the taxes and
$1000 attorney's fees. Whittler also
holds a mortgage 'for $3000 and $1825
Interest. The estate of Harriet B.
Campbell, deceased, holds a claim
against the property for $17,000, and
the German Savings & Xoan Society
holds a first mortgage for $33,000.
James Howard Pleads Guilty.
James Howard, called "the man un
der the bed," pleaded guilty In the
State Circuit Court yesterday to rob
bing Harry Allen in a room in the St.
Charles Hotel. Howard sprang from
under the bed as Allen was disrobing
and compelled him to surrender a gold
watch and $20. There are other cases
of this kind against Howard, who Is a
young man. Judge George will pro
nounce sentence later on.
Wife Sues for Divorce.
On account of desertion, beginning
June 17, 1901, at Oakland. Cal., Louise
C. Taylor has sued Christian A. Taylor
for a divorce. They were married at
Salt Lake In 1S97 and have no chil
dren. Inventory of Estate Filed.
The inventory and appraisement of
the estate of Mary Stelnhelser, de
ceased, showing property valued at
$12,000, was filed In the County Court
yesterday.
NEW PIPER PROM SCOTLAND
James McDonald Plays at Funeral In
Lone Fir Cemetery.
A new bagpipe player has come to town,
James McDonald, all the way from Scot
land, and those who have beard him per
form say that he is without a rival as a
piper in the Pacific Northwest. He re
cently officiated as piper at the funeral
of Mrs. Bertha P. Lcdirigbam, who was
buried at Lone Fir cemetery. A visitor
who was present writes: "I chanced to
be walking through the cemetery when I
met the funeral party about to bury the
late Mrs. Ledingham. Previously, my ac
quaintance with the bagpipes was of a
limited character, as I had enly beard
them played In a room or small hall, but
never In the open air. Piper McDonald
was one of the mourners, but he was not
dressed in tartan. He wore ordinary
clothing. Amid the most profound silence
of the Sunday afternoon the piper began
to play 'Scots Whae Hae the national
anthem of the Scotch race. Never before
had I been struck with the vein of sorrow
running- through this martial air. The
scene probably affected me, the walling
bagpipe music the open grave, the ceme
tery, the loneliness of that desolate spot
and the knowledge that I, too, some day
might be lying dead In a grave not very
far from the spot where the piper stood.
But In the meantime the piper's mood had
changed to that very Incarnation of sor
row. The Flowers of the Forest.' The air
was played with such exquisite expression
and dirgelike fidelity that the tears stood
in my eyes. Never again will I say that
there is no soul In the music of the bag
pipes. But I had to stand before a friend's
grave before I realized what the bagpipes
meant."

EDITORS ARE AT WAR
A. D. Griffin, of New Age, Is
Called a Traitor.
ADVOCATE MAN WAXES WROTH
One Colored Newspaper Man Is Ac
cused of Having the Colored
Cooks', Porters' and Jan- c
1 tors' Club Pulled.
Portland, sad to relate, is In the throes
of a bitter and fierce newspaper war.
This upheaval in newspaperdom Is ' con
fined to two of the Portland papers, the
Advocate, an independent paper, devoted
to the Interests of the colored people, and
the Portland New Age. Hon. A. D. Grif
fin, colored. Is the editor of the New Age,
and E. D. Cannady, colored, Is the editor
of the Advocate. It is said, however, that
the Hon. E. D. Cannady, the brilliant
editor of the Advocate, is not responsible
for the vicious attacks on the New Age.
Rumor has It that W. H. Willis, general
advertising agent for the Advocate, Is the
one that Is causing all the trouble. Willis
Is also president of tho Colored Cooks'.
Walters', Porters' and Janitors' Club, and
he accuses Mr. Griffin of being a traitor
to that organization. In fact, he Insinu
ates that Brother Grlflln was responsible
for this "Arlington Club of the North
End" being "pulled" by the police for
selling liquor without a license.
The rival newspapers appear on Satur
days, and each week they contain long
editorials on the front page. Where they
formerly lauded the Lewis and Clark Ex
position In glowing terms, they now spill
vitriol in endearing leaders directed at
each other.
The Advocate won a signal victory with
yesterday's Issue. It contained a large
two-column cut of the Hon. A. D. Griffin,
of the New Age. Underneath the picture
it had the following Inscription: "The
above likeness, A. D. Griffin, the Arch
Conspirator and Informer the figure
head manager of the New Age."
Griffin Cslled a Traitor.
The following is the letter which ac
companied the picture:
"To the Editor of the Advocate Dear
Sir: Please allow me space in your valu
able paper so that the world may know
that two such 'nigger traitors to the race
live In a respectable community. On the
colored citizens of Portland and the race
at large there has been a blemish cast by
A. D. Grlflln. Grlffln. the so-styled editor
of the New Age of which he has no say
finding that vocation getting defunct,
he has Jumped Into prominence as a stool
pigeon and informer against such an or
ganization as the Cooks', Walters', Por
ters' and Janitors Club, organized for
the domestic and social advancement of
the negro In the Northwest. John De
Moss Is one of his billing tools. For a
certain grievance and unknown purpose
he has administered the dirtiest blow In
the meanest way that we have, ever
known In the history of the negro in the
Northwest. These niggers should be
shunned by all respectable families and
societies, as the vilest of the vile traitors
and liars. All white people, public and
private, are warned against any dealings
whatsoever with them. All papers please
copy. Respectfully. W. H. WILLIS,
"President of the C, C, W., P. & J.
Club."
Willis is the general advertising agent
of the Advocate, and Is also one of the
leaders In the club of which he is presi
dent. In fact, he Is said to be part owner
of the organization. The club Is the seat
of all the bitterness. It was asserted that
Willis was running the club for profit.
This did not suit Grlffln, who did not
want to see the profession disgraced, as
it was alleged liquor was being sold In
the clubrooms. He made a cry against
the Injustice of a man being allowed to
work on a newspaper and at the same
time grow wealthy off the liquor traffic
The place was pulled by the police, and
Grlflln gets all the blame from Willis.
The case comes up before the police court
next Thursday.
Object to Word "Nigger."
The colored population of Portland has
not been much disturbed over the row
until yesterday's issue df the Advocate
found its way Into the hands of the news
boys, who paraded the streets selling the
papers to eager buyers. So great was the
demand that extra copies of the paper
had to be printed, but these were ex
hausted by nightfall. The picture did not
cause so much attention and comment. It
was the word "nigger." This was some
thing terrible. "The colored race of Port
land has been shamefully wronged," raid
a prominent waiter yesterday. "For
years we have tried to prevent tho white
people from calling us niggers, and we
have hoped for success. But all is lost
now. Our own paper, a sheet printed
especially for the advancement of the
negro, has come out In cold type and
called one of our brothers a 'nigger "
"Some of the colored folks of this town
are kicking up a terrible row about that
word 'nigger,' but I think it Is all right."
said a prominent bootblack yesterday aft
ernoon. "Of course, you know wo are
negroes, but I don't believe we ought to
object to rascals and jailbirds being called
'niggers.' Some of the colored people be
lieve the word was used all right, but
others insist they will make the Advocate
take back the allegation."
"Let tho best man win." said one of the
men leaders of the Portland colored four
hundred. "Both of the papers seem to
be domg pretty well, but I believe this
last Issue sends the Advocate away ahead.
I read both papers over very carefully.
In the Advocate's articles about the New
Age I found 23 words that I had never
seen xr heard of before. In the articles
in the New Age concerning the Advocate,
I only found 12 words that I didn't know
anything about. I believe the Advocate
has the best writers. It has been ru
mored, however, that the management of
the New Age has bought a dictionary."
PEES ONAL MENTION.
Dr. and Mrs. Nunn have returned after
a two months stay in New York.
Mrs. Elmer B. Colwell gave a card
party to a number of her friends at her
residence, 975 Corbett street, yesterday
afternoon.
Hockey-Player Charged With Murder
MONTREAL, March 4. As a climax
to a hockey season marked by rough
play, resulting in three Instances in
the death of players, Allan Loney, a
member of the Maxville, Ont. hockey
team, has been indicted on a charge
of murder. A week ago the Maxwell

half of an exciting match when Loney

GARS RUN ON TIME
Regular Schedules Are Closely
Followed,
SERVICE IS NOT CURTAILED
F. I. Fuller, Manager of Portland
Consolidated Company, Announces
That Improvements Are to Be
Made Rapidly as Possible.
The letter printed herewith was writ
ten to George S. Smith, In answer to
clippings sent Manager F. L Puller, of
the Portland Consolidated, criticising
the street-car service of the city and
making the assertion that the cars
were run in rains and not on the reg
ular schedules provided by the com
pany. In the letter Mr. Fuller explains
many of the points brought up showing
that it is the intention and desire of the
company to give the best possible serv
ice at all times to the people, and to
improve existing conditions. In tho
communication Mr. Fuller says:
We beg to acknowledge- the receipt of your
letter containing- clippings In regard to tho
system of. trains In this city. '
First, taking up the Mount Tabor and
Ennnyslde, the Sunnyslde trippers which run
as far as West avenue when on in the morn
ing and as far as Rosedala from 1 o'clock to
after 8 In the afternoon, are supposed to be
just half way between the Mount Tabor
cars, which run on 10-mlnute service. Of
course, with the delays on the drawbridges
and with the heavy travel during the rush
hours. It takes only & slight Interference on
a five-minute headway to bring the cars
close together. Prior ' to about two weeks
ago, from 5 o'clock until 6:10, when the
Mount Tabor cars were made through cars,
the Sunny side cars left at the same time,
intentionally double-heading the service for
this period, as It was asserted that practice
proved that this gave the evenest loads and
the best results. However, about two weeks
ago we discontinued this practice, having
the regular Sunnyslde trippers run through
on the regular nve-mlnute headway and
sending out some extra cars from 5 to 6:10,
following up the Mount Tabor through cars.
The two cars leaving Yamhill street that
you Bpeok of as pulling out one Immediately
after the other at 8:12 P. M. was due to
the fact that the Sunnyslde car had com
pleted Its day run at that time and was run
ning Into the born. Thus It would be on
East Morrison street only as far as Grand
avenue, and would take no passengers for
the Sunnyslde line. Of course, this looks to
an observer as being a very Queer proceed
ing, but it has been found much more satis
factory when running a car to the shops
or bora to run it close to another car than
to run In any other way.
Washington-Street Service.
The statement In the brlefiet regarding the
Washington-street "M" cars, etc-, would call
for, much crltlcsm if it were true. In the
first place the Sixteenth-street cars run out

Intervals of six and seven minutes. The
Twenty-third-street cars run at Inter
vals of seven and & half minutes. Port
land Heights cars run o'ut at Intervals of 10
and 11 minutes during the day time not
always perfect, of 'course, especially when
Twenty-third street Is torn up on account
of putting down heavier rails, but, taking
all in all. we know that they run very close
ly to schedule.
Now It is manifestly Impossible for cars
running six, seven, seven and a half and
ten-minute schedules to run in trains all the
time. If the Heights car and tho Twenty-third-street
car leave the foot of Washington
street on the even hour together, at 15 min
utes past the hour the Twenty-third-street
car leaving will be exactly half way In be
tween the Heights car leaving before and
afterwords. The same way with the Sixteenth-street
and Twenty-third-street cars
leaving close together at one time, the diver
gence Increases, until finally at tho end of
an hour's tlmo they leave together ngnln.
In the meantime they have been all the
way from one to three minutes apart, which
Is the farthest that they con get. Moreover,
on "Washington street, for about two rush
hours at night, four extra cars are put on,
running out Twenty-third as far as Qulmby
street. This makes a three and three-quarter-minute
service on the Twenty-third-street
line to beyond the hospitals. This
makes at the rush hours at night over 30
cars an hour leaving the. foot of 'Washington
street going west, and all during the day"
there are S3 cars an hour.
"When the statement Is made that the cars
pull out regularly In threes over 10 minutes
apart, we know It Is not the rule. "When
we consider that about 23 cars an hcur leave
the foot of "Washington street during these
same rush hours for the Cast Side, it Is
plain that the least Interference when a
car leaves In either one direction or the
other about every minute will naturally
bring a couple or more cars together.
As it takes, roughly speaking, five min
utes for a car to run up "Washington to
Thirteenth. It gives some people the Idea
that the cars are a long distance apart.
Aa the Morrlson-strcet cars and the "W"
cars' run on a different headway, it Is mani
festly Impossible that the same synchronous
arrangements apply to the starting of these
cars from the other end of the line. These
cars were run as alternating schedules for
a couple of months, but lack of cars has
prevented as running them In that manner
for the last two months.
Service Not Curtailed.
Contrary to a frequently expressed opinion,
the Portland Consolidated Railway Company,
running with the same officers, the same as
sistant superintendents, the same car men,
and under the same orders as before, has
not decreased Its service in any district In
the city. but. on the contrary. Is running
more cars than were ever run in the City
pf Portland before, and we would run more
If we had suitable "Winter cars to run at
this time of-the year. "We have, of course
been very much handicapped In having our
dispatcher system curtailed, the Morrison
