HIE SUNDAY OREGOXIAX. PORTLAND. SEPTEMBER 2, 1906. 4 LUMBERMEHSEND THEIR ULTIMATUM Cars They Will Have, or Suit Will Be Begun Against the Northern Pacific. SUPPLY IS NOW CUT OFF Railroad Announces That for a Week No More Lumber Will Be 3Ioved, In Effort to Clear Vp the Congestion. SEATTLEL Waih., Sept. 1. (Special.) Lumber and shingle manufacturers today sent an ultimatum to President Howard Elliott and Superintendent I. B. Richards, of the car service bureau or the Northern Pacific, declaring the railroad must im mediately cancel Us order prohibiting the acceptance of cars loaded with forest products for Eastern movement or toe confronted with a fight in court. The railroad today announced that for a week no more cars loaded with lumber would be accepted, for the system Is now congested with freight that cannot be moved. In their telegrams to railroad officials the manufacturers declared this order sets at defiance state and Federal laws that will be Invoked If the order is not canceled. Preparations have been taken to ask for an Injunction next week If the road does not modify its order. Lumbermen cay the rule discriminates against them and If enforced will mean the loss In trade of hundreds of cars of lumber and shingles. , The movement of lumber and shingles eastward for the Fall trade has Just commenced and it will probably be neces sary for many of the small shingle mills to close If the order is enforced. They have no storage room. An inquiry had iust been started by the shingle mills 'Ureau to ascertain the cause of delays In furnishing cars when the new man date was given. Division Superintendent Albee, In ex planation, says that the demand for lum ber and wheat cars is so great and the East-bound trafno is so heavy that busi ness is three weeks behind, and the con gestion has become intolerable both for the road and for shippers. The trouble, he says, lies in the company's Inability to get engines. Manufacturers have dis appointed the company In delivering lo comotives. Of 1S2 engines ordered months ago only 30 have been delivered. PROTEST FROM GRAY'S HARBOR Lumbermen's Association Has Sent Warning to Northern Pacific. ABERDEEN, Wash., Sept. 1. (Special.)

' Twelfth Annual Regatta at Astoria Closes With a Number of Interest ing Events In Perfect Weather. ASTORIA. Or., Sept. 1. (Special.) Astoria's 12th annual regatta closed today ' after a most successful three days of sports and social features. The weathor has been ideal throughout and this morning, when the flagship took her position off the grandstand to call the rowing events, there was scarcely a breath of wind stirring and the river was as smooth as glass, with barely a ripple on Its Burface. The first event "on the programme was the consolation race In single shells between Ed Gloss and Dr. Pat ton, In which Gloss gave Patton a min ute and a half handicap in a race of one and one-half miles with a turn. When the second gun . was fired to start Gloss, Patton was so far away that ho appeared to the spectators like a sure winner, but the way Gloss made his shell fly through the water was simply marvelous and at the turning stake he was but 13 seconds behind. But it was after Gloss had straightened out for the row home that he showed the speed of which he is capable. By this time Patton was weakening and when half way down the course the men were on even terms, and Gloss won out by 85 seconds. Hia time was 10:35. As soon as the single shell contest was over two surfboats from the ten der Heather, each manned by five of the tender's crew, were sent over the same course. The bow boat won by a length, but the winners had the light er oraft. The double pleasure boat race was won by Patton and Boost, who de feated Gloss and Rennlck. The gasoline fishboat race was won by N. Driscol, with H. Hagerup a close second. The log-rolling contest between R. E. Spencer and Frank Anderson proved as Interesting and exciting as the one yesterday, butthe tables were turned and Anderson threw his antagonist twice. The tub race was won by Ivar Ross, with George Beard second, and Beard again captured the greased pole contest. This completed the water events and the afternoon-was given to the oountry fair, kennel and stock shows. This afternoon the Judges announced the winners in last evening's marine parade as follows: Best decorated steamer Heather, first; Lottie, second. Best decorated sailing craft Corsair, first; Naiad, second. Best decorated launch Pilot, first; A. Booth, second. Best decorated gasoline boat Trifler, first; Eagle, second.

A special to the Port-Intelligencer from Seward, Alaska, Bays: Five more Japanese have been arrested at Sf. George Island, one of the Pribyloff group, by the Government agent, accused of poaching seals.

OREGON CITY, Or., Sept. 1. (Special.) Thresa Strakman was today found guilty by a Jury before Justice J. W. VanHorn. at Oswego, of the charge of maliciously destroying a shade tree. She was fined $30 and has appealed the case to the Circuit Court. The private prose cutor was J. W.

At the trial today Mrs. Strakman did not offer any testimony In her defend- i REJECT CALHOUN'S OFFER Vote to Stand by Their De mand for Pay, but Would Arbitrate on Hours. BUSINESS IS SUFFERING Larger Restaurants Discharge Many Employes, and Several of Larger Stores May Close Until the Strike la Over. BAN FRANCISCO. Sept 1. As the re sult of the action of the Carmen's Union today In rejecting the proposal made by President Calhoun, through Mayor Schmltz yesterday, that the men return to work and submit the differences be tween them and the company to a com mittee of arbitration, all negotiations are off and the end of the strike on the United Railways Beems farther away than It was a week ago. At a general meeting this morning of the union, the carmen voted to reject the proposition for a settlement as of fered by Calhoun, to stand by their de mands for $3 a day and arbltraate the question of hours, and to extend the strike to the Geary and California-street cable roads, which had made no reply to the demands made on them, .as on the United Railroads. The Geary and California-street railroads were to be tied up at 6 o'clock tonight. This would have left the city without street-car service at all. More Time Is Granted Piatt. This afternoon Horace G. Piatt, presi dent of' the Geary-street ' railroad, addressed- a communication to the union, asking it to wait until the directors met next Tuesday to consider the demands, before declaring a strike on the road. This was granted by the carmen, and the road will remain In operation at least until Tuesday. Whether a strike will then be declared will depend on the ac tion of the directors, declare the carmen. In view of the fact that the California street cable road- is at present operating at a loss, and, as stated In a letter to the Carman's Union by President James B. Stetson, that the road Is only running to accommodate the public and In the Interest of the city. It was decided by the carmen to leave the road in operation indefinitely. Mayor Schmitz. expressed his regrets that the carmen had refused to accept Calhoun's proposal of arbitration, which had .been secured through him, and. stat ed' that the situation looked dark, but that he would continue his eqorts to bring about the end of the strike. Carmen Ordered to Report. President Calhoun posted articles at all the carbarns today requesting that the carmen report for duty tomorrow and stating that all those who failed to com ply will be discharged. This has started rumors that the company will make an attempt to. operate some cars tomorrow. Calhoun tonight refused to deny or af firm these, stating that he was not pre pared to say when he would take out the first cars. He denied the report that Governor Pardee had telegraphed him protesting against the invasion of the Btate by armed strikebreakers. "Governor Pardee today sent me a tele gram of inquiry asking whether It was true, as reported In the papers, that I was importing armed strikebreakers.'" said Calhoun. "I Informed the Governor by telegraph that the men were law-abiding citizens; that I was bringing them here on a peaceful mission, that of oper ating the cars on the United Railroads, and that I relied upon the authorities to protect them." Says Governor Cannot Prevent. Mr. Calhoun further stated that the Governor could not stop him from bring ing men to the state to operate his cars and that, so far as he knew, there was no disposition to do so. "Instead of protests, there should be re joicing that I am bringing men to restoro the street-car service in this city," said he. "I am not a bluffer, and the sooner the carmen find out that I am not bluffing and mean exactly what I say, the better It will be for all concerned," declared Calhoun. President Calhoun said he had no for mal statement to make on the situation tonight. He expressed his regrets that the carmen did not see fit to accept his proposal and return to work, but that it was a duty he owned to the stockholders, as well as to the public, to operate the cars, and the city would be the gainer by that much in. its population by the men he would Import to run the cars. President Cornelius, of the Carmen's Union, declared tonight that the union would stand pat on the demands made and that the situation had resolved Itself Into a deadlock between the company and Its employes, with no immediate prospect of a break. Calhoun Get Bit of Flattery. The executive committee of the union tonight sent a letter to Calhoun advising him of the action of the carmen In voting to reject the company's proposition for arbitration without definite promises of 3 a day. expressed its admiration of Cal houn's personal character and stated that his employes hoped he would turn back the "horde of strike-breakers," said to be on the way to this city. While the principal grumblers are those who have suffered the inconvenience and hardship of walking, It is becoming evi dent that continued suspension of car service is being severely felt In all lines of business. It is said that many large restaurants have been compelled to discharge a large number of their employes and that many large retail establishments are operating at such a loss that they are considering the advisability of closing down until Btreet car traffic is restored. Rumors are thick tonight that several of the large stores will not open Tuesday morning. It was impossible to verify this, but the proprietor of one of the largest retail stores on Vanness Avenue said that busi ness had fallen off to such an extent owing to the strike and the inability of shoppers to come to the stores, that some such action would in all probably would be taken.. s Teachers Protest Cut in Wages. SAN FRANCISCO, Sept 1. A meeting of about 160 publia school teachers was held today to protest against the reduc tion in salaries.

The amount Bought was J2000, If It Should be found that much money was necessary. Tho banks demurred, whereupon Governor Gooding han.lud the board that sum to make it secure against any deficiency.

The "springs" -which caused the big slide on the Southern Pacific railraod track at Cantara, in the Sacramento River Can yon, 112 miles South of Ashland, blocading the track for days and still necessitating a transfer around the obstructions by teams over a wagon road five miles long from Dunamulr to Mott, are made by an Irrigation ditch, with which a rancher named Branstetter distributes moisture over an orchard which ha owns above the railroad track at the point. Accord ing to the story that comes here from the scene, Branstetter is Btandlng strictly upon hia rights to Irrigate his orchard even If it blccks trafflo on the main line of the Southern Paeiflo between Portland and San Francisco for all time to come. Several times already has the Southern Pacific had expensive slides at this point, which It la alleged are due to Branstet ter's irrigation ditch, but the present one Is the most extensive and expensive one the company has yet had to contend with. It Is over 300 feet long and la from ten to 12 feet In depth across the track for this distance.

Branstetter It Is said has a grudge against the company which dates from construction days when he thought he got the worst of some sort of a right-of-way deal through his property. Although Branstetter has lost con siderable of his land already through these slides, there is enough left yet it Is said to provide many more obstructions should other portions of It take a notion to slough off down his hillside and upon the railroad track.
