NORTH BANK KEPT
Trouble With Terminal Com
pany Necessitates Another
Station for New Road.
NOT OPEN BEFORE NOV. 1
Equipment Ordered From Pullman
, Company Xot Beady Draw In
Willamette Bridge Swung
for First flm.
That the North Bank road will not be
alloa-ed to use the Union Depot for its
passenger trains when the new Hill road
Is first opened Into Portland now seems
probable. Unfortunate terminal troubles
between the Hill and Harrlman interests,
that have been In progress for the past
two years, are still unsettled and are
responsible for the present tangle. For a
time at least after the opening of the
Fpokane. Portland & Seattle Into this
city, It Is likely the new line will use
one of the buildings In its freight yards
as a passenger depot. This Hill terminal
Ilea directly west of the Union Depot.
Xclthcr Side Can Agree.
The difficulty about the use of the
Union Depot for passenger trains Is one of
the biggest obstacles to the successful
opening of the new North Bank road.
Application was made last Spring by the
management of the new road to the
Northern Pacific Terminal Company for
permission to use the Union Depot. Since
that time the matter has been under ad
visement but no decision has been
reached. Negotiations have been In -progress
between the Hill and Harrlman In
trets and each side has made a propo
sition, to the other. So far. no adjust
ment satisfactory to both sides has been
reached, although It Is expected by both
roads that an arrangement will eventual
ly be made whereby the new road will
use the local passenger terminal In com
mon with all other roads centering here.
Willamette Bridge Swung.
Yesterday marked an Important step
in the completion of the North Bank road,
for the draw span of the new Willamette
River Bridge was swung for the first
time by the machinery installed to turn
it. This is the longest and heaviest draw
span In the world and the machinery re
quired to turn it to allow steamers to
pass up and down the river had to be
unusually heavy and of special manufac
ture. The installation of this machinery
has caused a long delay In the completion
of the new bridge.
But little now remains to be done
to complete the North Bank road ex
cept to lay track from the main line
of the Northern Pacific on the west
hank of the river to the bridge In the
shape of a "Y" and finish the track
at the east . approach to the bridge.
This can be accomplished in a week,
so that the road could be opened with
in a few days if all other things were
Road to Be Opened November 1.
But It Is thought likely that the new
road will not be opened until Novem
ber 1. although no definite announce
ment has been made. This will give
time for the possible settlement of the
terminal trouble and also for the ar
rival of the new trains now being
built for the road by the Pullman
Company. Fiva new trains will be
sent here for use on the North Bank
road between Portland and Spokane,
and they are expected to arrive In
Portland late this month. They are
said to b of the latest and best de
sign and appointments in passenger
Trouble Between Terminals.
The local terminal war Is an inter
esting chapter In recent railroad his
tory and is still fresh In the public
mind. The local terminal company,
while being a corporation In which the
Harrlman Interests hold the majority
of the stock, is known as the Northern
Pacific Terminal Company, a misnom
er. Some years ago the majority of
stockholders became Involved in a dis
pute with the Hill Interests over the
acquisition of additional terminals ly
ing alongside the present terminal
grounds. The purchase was contem
plated for some time but delayed.
When the terminal company attempted
to close the deal, it was found that
the Hill Interests had acquired the
property. Bad faith on the part of
C. M. Levey, a Hill director of the
terminal company, was freely charged
and the feeling became bitter between
the rival railroad interests, ind num
erous suits were' filed and hearings
held. The matter is still In the courts,
but an amicable adjustment Is hoped
for so that the lltlgatlop may be
The Interest of the public In the
matter Is strongly toward a reconcili
ation, so that the North Bank trains
mav use the Union Depot. Freight
trafno on the new line will be handled
in the new Hill freight terminals, but
It Is to the advantage of the public to
have all passenger trains enter the
same depot, doing away with frequent
handling of baggage and trips of trav
elers from one depot to another.
OIlKuOX MIDLAND RAILKOAD
CO. INC'OK POKATF.D.
Purposes to Bulltl From Weiser,
Idaho, to Portland May Connect
With Colorado Midland.
That Pavid MofTatt. the Colorado rail
road builder, who is behind the Colorsdo
Midland, has his eyes on Oregon has
b9n believed here for some time and
confirmation is seemingly lent to the be
lief that MofTatt will extend to the Ore
gon Coast by reason of the filing of arti
cles of Incorporation of the Oregon Mid
land Railroad Company with the Secre
tary of State at Salem yesterday. The
Oregon Midland is formed with a capital
stock of tin'.'". which Is considered a
merely nominal capitalisation, and the
avowed objects are to construct a line
of railroad from Weiser. Idaho, through
Oregon to Portland. Tillamook and to
Coos Bay. Incorporators are Portland
people. R. A. Capiea. C. M. Conry. Miller
JJurdock and John P. Van Orsdel.
It Is known that the men whose names
appear In the articles of Incorporation are
allowing themselves to be used for the
purpose of Incorporation and have no in
terest In the construction of the railroad
as projected. The fact that the Colorado
Midland la now extending toward Weiser,
which It wUl reach, by connecting lines.
lends color to the belief that the MofTatt
interests are taking active steps to push
their lines to . the ports on the coast
of this state.
Hour Set for Delivery or Freight.
The management of the Northern
Pacific Terminal Company had a ses
sion yesterday with the Oregon "ab
road Commission In regard to deliv
eries of freight from the local terminal
yards. Heretofore, deliveries to the
Industry tracks In North Portland have
been made at Irregular hours of the.
Jay and night, and resulted In incon-.
venlence alike to consignees and resi
dents of the warehouse district. The
terminal company agreed to make de
liveries each day hereafter at 6 o clock
In the afternoon. Members of the Com
mission also had a hearing scheduled
yesterday in- Eastern Oregon, where
stock-shipping towns are anxious for
the O. R. A N. to establish stockyards.
Rates to Spokane Apple Show.
Special -ates have been ordered by

29 days. Other rates will be made
from points further East. Hood River,
Southern Oregon and Willamette Val

ingly a good deal of interest in the
event In this state.
Oregon City Cars on West Side.
Oregon City cars returned to the
former West Side station yesterday
morning, after having been routed
from the east end of the Morrison
bridge for the past week. The cars
were stsrted from the East Side be

Leaves Theater Without Changing
Clothes, Tries to Borrow Money
and Writes Strange Letters.
PARIS. Oct. 10. (Special.) Another
tragedy behind the scenes has been
the sudden madness of a music-hall
singer. Mme. Gense. She had been en
gaged at the Olympla. which reopened
the other evening under a new man
agement, and with fresh prospects of
success. She was doing well there, but
had elsewhere lost a good deal of
The other evening at Olympla her
manner was strange and she behaved
In so extraordinary a way on the atage
that she was asked to leave the theater.
Without changing her stage dress, and
without putting a hat on, she Jumped
Into a motor-car and drove to the
Chatelet Theater, where she sought out
the manager and cried to him:
"You must lend me J10. As you see.
I have not even clothes to my back."
Then, before he even had time to
answer, she was off again In her motor
to another theater, the Nouveautes. Not
being received there, she went home,
refused all TocAl. and wrote Strang let

She has now -been placed In a private
EXPORTS FROM IRELAND
Industrial Revival in Emerald Isle
to Develop Trade.
DUB1JN. Oct 10. (Special.) The an
nual Irish Industrial Conference, which
Was held In Galway. was in every sense
one of the most remarkable that has
yet taken place. In addition to repre
sentatives from all parts of Ireland there
were delegates present from Australia,
New Zealand. Canada, the United States,
France, Germany, etc. The proceedings
were opened by Sir James O'Donohoe,
chairman of the urban council, and the
first resolution, which was proposed by
Lord Dunraven. emphasized the Impor
tance of an organized effort to develop
the export trade of Ireland.
Lord Dunraven, in the course of his
speech, said that Irish goods should live
on their own merits, and while he be
lieved the present industrial revival
would have the sympathy not only of
Irishmen in other countries, but also of
many foreigners, he was anxious that the
opening of outside markets to them
should not be taken as an appeal for
The Rev. William O'Flanagan, an
American Roman Catholic, said that for
the past 20 or 30 years Irish delegates
had been coming to America to ask for
money, but If the energy and persever
ance so expended were applied in in
dustrial effort the results would be In
BURGLAR NICE YOUNG MAN
Entertains Aged Occupant of House
While Companions Rob.
PARIS. Oct. 10. (Special.) While
the mistress of the house had gone out
with her children three polite burglars
entered her villa at Triel. Xot want
ing to put anyone out. they had wait
ed until the house was empty. But on
exploring the place they unexpectedly
found an old lady In bed. the mother
of the mistress of the house, aged over
S2. She was naturally alarmed, but the
polite burglars reassured her. One, a
young man. the politest of the three,
"Madam, allow me to apologize. Have
no fear. We know the respect due to
years, and would not think of hurting
a hair of your head. All we want Is
the swag. Allow me to keep you com
pany while my friends look for it."
The amiable young man. true to his
word, sat down by the old lady's bed
side and chatted pleasantly to her while
his confederates plundered the house.
When their operations were over he got
up. bowed, apologized profusely again,
and retired. The rest of the family re
turned to find all the valuables In the
house gone. The old lady told her ad
venture, and said what a pity it was the
young man was a burglar, because he
really was such a nice young man.
