Tl.e Carrie I.add so nanv-d nfter the

had been active In steam navigation
on the waters of the Willamette and

the yotinr to return with him
t. Oresn and plaee the marlilnery In
the vrrsel. Af;.-r completing the work
Kimrn remained with Iter as enin. --r
W. II. IL Hall was pilot durlim tli-i
ateamer'a early dai and afterwards
J. .'. Alnsworth was the raptalr.. It
was In this way that Kamm and Alns
worth berame acquainted, their ilose
association later bringing- tiiem into
many business partnerships.
Karom built the Jrnnle Clark, the
first aternwheeler ronstrm ted In Ore
it on. and later Captain Alnsworth Joined
him In hulldlnic the Carrie I-ald.
T!ie little vessel was a moner-niaker
from the start, but the ownership
so Involevd that It required an expert
accountant to figure the dividends.
When the Carrie w placed In
commission It wa Intended that slie
should operate between Portland and
Oregon City. The Jennie Clark Hid
the Kvpress were runninK between
those two point'. la tiiose days stock
companies were unknown In OroRn
and everything- was done on a part
nership basis. The combination that
owned the Jennie Clark held an In
terest In the Kipress. and the Express
partnership alro had a share In tl-.c
Carrie I-add- Kamm and a few others
were Interested In eai h of the thrt
vessels, both as Individuals and as .ar
ncrs. Compound Kraitlon Arc rrdrd.
"It used to keep one of us busy to
divide the money. In the proper pro
portions." said Ur. Kamm yesterday.
-When I went to school I always won
rired what prood compound fractions
ever rou!d be. but I found soon after
the Carrie Ladd started business that
1 had plenty of need for them. We al
ways figured our dividends down 10
the last cent.
"As the Carrie Ladd was a much
larger anil faster boat than either the
J.-nnle Clark or the Express people In
traveling- between Portland and Oregon
City chose the newer vessel with the
result that business on the two others
was almost demoralized.
"Then we decided to place the Carrie
Ijkdd Into service between Portland and
Cascade In competition with lien Stark's
line of steamers. In this way we bullt
up a business that extended from Port'
land beyond The Dalles."
The buslnss grew so rapidly that a
more systematic method of handling It
had to be devised, so In 1M5S the I'nion
Transportation Company was organized,
taking- In all the Columbia Klver boats
between Portland and the upper Co
lombia. Including the Carrie Ladd. The
Jennie Clark and the Kvpress were left
to operate Independently. Two years
later the Oregon Steam Navigation
Company succeeded the I'nion Trans
portation Company, the latter never
having been Incorporated. Kamm and
R. R. Thompson were amona the heav
iest stockholders when the concern was
duly chartered and started for busi
ness. The Oregon Sleam Navigation Com
pany waa the financial wonder of Ira
day and age. In a very few years the
fleet of small and comparatively Insig
nificant steamers swelled In proportions
and extended the scope of Us operations
up and down the river and Into Puret
Sound. Skillful management and the
great opportunities for navigation busi
ness In the Northwest accumulated the
money with which the present great
vsteni of railways was constructed.
Purlng the early sixties amm and J.
C Alnsworth were acme officers of
the concern, the latter being president
and the former serving In the capacltv
that might be compared with tiie head
of the mechanical department of the
present dav. viamm constantly acquired
more stock In the company and when
be sold out bis Interests In ISi'i he was
one of the heaviest shareholders.
O. IL A N. Co. Is OrganUnl.
After enjoying nearly a score of years
of unparalleled prosperity the Oregon
Steam Navigation Company passed out
of existence and was succeeded by the
Oregon Railway er Navigation Company
which was Incorporated In June.
with a capitalisation of J.on,ooo. di
vided Into shares of $l0 each. W. II.
Corbett. C. II. Lewis. J. N. Iolph. Paul

were among the principal stockholders.
TVe fleets of the Willamette Transpor
tation A locks Company and the peo
ples Transportation Company also were
taken over bv the new corporation.
In May. 11. the O. R. & X. Co.
turned Its attention to Puget Sound and
purchased the Starr line of steamers.
The profits of the company grew, and
each ..f 1 he three divisions river navl.
gatlon. ocean navigation and railroads
reported handsome earnings.
After the first railroad was built In
to Oregon the company became inter
ested In rail transportation and little by
lltrle the chain of steel highways that

Acrd Founder Still Alert.-
Mr. Kamm took a keen Interest In
the recent announcement of the Incor
poration of the new company. While It
tir-s Mr.) 10 peruse a printed page, his
faithful wife enri fully read to Mm Cie
fall story of the new concern and Its
extcn!ve plans of further upbuilding
ihe Northwest through the present lines
of the 0. R. X. Co. and the newly
acquired North Coast road. lie grew
enthusiastic In discussing the probabili
ties of the future. Ills mind Is active
and a'ert and in recnlllns the Incidents
of those earlv davs when the giant con
cern was In Its Inclplenry he was par
ticularly accurate as to dates, names
and Important Incidents.
His voice Is as distinct ami as steady
as it xran 40 years ago. and his hand
shake Is as firm and as hearty.
Although he Is unable to leave the
house he dally receives reports from the
Kirst National Hunk of Astoria, of
which l.e is 1 president, from the Van
couver Transportation Company and
from his other extensive Interests and
regularly gives- advice wl'h reference to
their management.
It does me good to know that the

Order 1'atlicrvd Amendment.
AI.RAN Y. Or., Nov. 2S. (To the F.dl
tor.) I note In The Oregonlsn of Xo
vember :i under the head. "New Tax
Ijw." a paragraph states "the new
tax law Is ssld to have been origi
nated In toe State Orange." and to cor
rect this mistake I would ask your in
dulgence. In the proceedings of the 57th annual
session of the Oregon State Grange on
page 50 (being n portion of the re
port of the execuTTVe committee) is the
following language:
Tte executive committee has been Impor
tuned hy the State Federation "f l-lor to
co-oper-ate In Initiation of sn additional
in.-n.lm-nt providing for county local op
tion in taxation. sIMng eojnlles the rlsht
10 etth-r tax or exempt anr class of proper! v
that thev might see nt . and that no tax
law should bn-onta effective until approved
by the people. The committee fell, how
ever, that lhj were net authorised to cn'er
Into such sa arrangement and have de
clined to ilt. their support.
There was also a special committee
appointed to eicet with the Stale
Federation of Labor to consider this
measure and their report was still
more antagonistic toward the measure.
In part It reaus:
We f-el that It Is imperative to a well
reeulate.1 goiernment i.iai the burden or
texa'ion should bear JuMlv snd equitably
upon all taxpaveri and owner, of property,
real and personal- and we view with alarm
th proposed constitutions! amendment look
ing towards Ik-I countv option for the reg
ulation of taxation and exemptions, and It
is the opinion of Tour delegates thst such
a change In the constitution as Is proposed
7 s ...ia to conflict
of authoritr and If put to effect would ulti
mately les.l to rnnn.-atiun 01
It will be observed by referring to
the election returns that the measure
got Its best support In this and other
cities within the state and I feel sure
that the farmer ran be relied on to
vote agalnat slngl tax "by counties"
or otherwise, providing the ballot title
Is not misleading, as evidently tro
case In the last election. With this
statement of facts I trust It will be
evident to all that the Oregon State
Orange had no part or lot In passage or
-originating" the new tax law.
The Impression prevailing that tho
Grange as nn organization originated
the county tax amendment very -ro'j-ably
arose through the interest dis
played In Its- adoption by prominent
members of the organization.
These individuals felt free, perhaps,
to give this Impression because tiie
Grange refused to go on record for or
against the measure. It Is -.uted In
the official publication of the proceed
ings of tiie annual session, that the
executive committee reported as quoted
by Mr. Palmer. The publication, how
ever, relates also that after the sub
mission of the reports quoted by Mr.
Talmer a resolution was submitted
authorising and Instructing the execu
tive committee to unite with and 11
slst the Federation of Labor In pre
senting and advocating the adoption
by the people of Oregon of ajl three
taxation amendments that were sub
sequently submitted in the November
election. It is apparent from the re
port of the proceedings that the dis
cussion of tills resolution continued
until the hour of adjournment was
near at hand, when a substitute waa
adopted containing the following reso
lution: "Be It resolved. That the proposed
tax amendment known as article IX.
section la. is laid on the table for lack
of time to properly consider the same
and we leave the question with the
people for their study and consider
ation." W. S. l"Ren. reputed to be on. of
the original promoters of the couMy
tax amendment participated In the dis
cussion and aubmllled tue suos'ltuie
resolution that was adopted. Mr. l"Ren
later assisted In writing the Kels, or
Bourne pamphlet, distributed broadcast
among the voters in which the adop
tion of all three amendments was ad
vocated. The Grange as a body may be op
posed to the obnoxious amendment that
lias been adopted, but If so It seems
to have been manipulated successfully
Into a sort 'of half-way acquiescence
which undoubtedly added voting;
strength to the measure perhaps suf
ficient to Ive it the small majority
by which It carried.'

Captain of Liner ilve, Signal' to

SAX FRANCISCO. Nov. 2i (Special.)
The recent misfortunes of the San Francisco-Portland
Steamshlb Company were
added to this morning when the big
liner Rear, in entering her berth at
Pier 40. cut a ro.-k barge in two and went
Into the bulkhead for a distance of 2l
feet, doing damage estimated at Kfttfo.
Apparently, the blame for the misliup
Ilea In the engine-room. Captain Nopan
der says that he gave the signal to re
verse, but Instead of going astern, the
pear went ahead. The damage to the
licnr Is not extensive and she expects to
leave tomorrow morning for Portland.
The Bear was berthing at the end of
her run from San Pedro, and it Is said
if It had not been for the fact that the
rock barge loosened the force of the Im
pact, the steamer's hull would have
been punctured. As It Is. only one plato
is slightly dented.
The Reaver will not be able to resume
her run to Portland for two weeks. She
la now mi the drydock undergoing repairs
from the collision she had in the harbor
this week. Twenty of her plates wero
dented and some 'extensive repairs are
Since Inaugurating service on the Port-land-San
Francisco run the Rear and
Beaver have excellent showings so far
as speed Is concerned, but the Beaver
was unfortunate In grounding In the
lower harbor during a fog a few months
ago. which was due to the fact an In
bound steamer anchored in the fairway.
On her last voyage south the Bear was
eTelayed by head winds and the strong
southeaster on. but weathered it with
out mlshnp. The accident Tuesday in
which the Beaver and Selja figured ap
pears to have been one of those cases
that occur at sea despite precautions
and the modern appliances for safeguard
ing passenger vessels.
Two foal Cargoes Arrive FYoni Op
posite Parts of World.
Two coal cargoes reached the lower
harbor yesterday coming front opposiia
sides of the globe, for the French bark
Buffon brought anthracite fuel from
Swansea, being 1W days In actual time
on the way. and the Urltlsh ship In
veravon crossed In with coal from New
castle, arter a voyage of T days. The
Buff on. while consigned to Balfour.
Guthrie & Co.. will deliver her enruo
at the Southern Pacific dock on the
Kast Side, for the Kdlessen Fuel Com
pany. Tiie Scottish Moors, which reported
from Antwerp Friday, was 171 days on
the way. The Frenchman made a bet
ter trip, yet she is far from being class
ed with th record-breakers. The ar
rival of the Inveravon leaves but one
vessel on the way wUh coal front New
castle, but the British steamer Quito
will load there for Astoria and Portland,
while the French bark Marechal de Oon
taut. recently chartered, will sail from
there aoon. Like the Scottish Moors the
Buffon and Inveravon will be loaded
outward with wheat for Kurope.
Yellow Staek Must Change Time
Vnder Present Order.
When the Hawthorne avenue bridge
is thrown open to the public another
obstacle will confront the Yellow Stack
Line on the I'pper Willamette route,
because the f'rst morning closed period
Is from 6:30 to 7 o'clock and for years
It has been the custom of the company
to dispatch Its steamers for Salem and
Corvallls at o'clock. That schedule
waa adopted because it was possible for
passengers to reach the dock on the first

early cars from suburban points. An
Kverage of over la.OAi persons travel on
tiie steamers annually. 1
When the question of closing the
bridges at certain hours was Inaugurated
no objection was offered by the Yellow
Stack Line officials because It was not
nntlclpated the Government would sanc
tion the move and since the order was
made effective it has worked no in
convenience as the only bridge to pass
through was open.
Now that the structure is about com
pleted It offers another delay 'n addi
tion to the Oregon City locks, and it is
not improbable that the company will
change its leaving time to :5 o'clock,
unless the Government sees fit to make
an exception for the only line operating
to points south of Portland.
Portland Shippers YVnnt Admiralty
Court to Fix Claims.
When for the first time in years the
docket In the I'nlted States Admiralty
Court had been clear, except for two
cases set for rehearing, two new ac
tions were yesterday begun Involving
delivery of cargo from the steamer
Falcon. of the American-Hawaiian
fleet, which was refused by the under
writers because of a recent fire ahonrd
that 'caused considerable damage In
the hold Just forward of the engine
room. The Burgen-Spcinger Hat Company
vestcrday filed a complaint against the
Amerlcan-IlawallaVi Steamship Com
pany for $35.1.87 as the value of eight
eases of hats shipped from the At
lantic seaboard, and damHges In the
sum of $100. It is recited in the plead
ings that the shipment was made Sep
tember 24 and that it arrived Novem
ber 11. when the Falcon raced for port,
with the fire burning fiercely and it
was put out by wrecking pumps on
steamers and a fire engine at Astoria.
The plaintiff avers that the principal
damage Is from water. The freight
charges were tendered the company
wlth the statement .that damages
would be asked for according to the
loss sustained, but the company would
enter into no stipulation.
The Portland Photo Supply - Corn
pan v. plaintiff In the second action,
seeks Judgment for $106. .17 as the value
of supplies on the vessel, and $33 dam
ages. An adjustment of the loss on
the Falcon has not been made, as'the

Pilot Schooner Will He Lifted on
St. Johns Drydock.
Tn storms prevalent off the Columbia
River of late the pilot schooner Joseph
Pulitzer, of the Port of Portland serv
ice, suffered damage to her gear and
on being brought inside it was found
that- she leaked slightly, so she was
ordered here. The schooner arrived
in.t nr.ninr in ii' of the steamer
Ocklahama. and will be lifted on the
Port of Portland drydocK.
The Pulitzer has been hanging to
her station In the face of some of the
worst weather experienced on the
Coast, and. being battered about to
such an extent. It would have been un
usual had some of her equipment or
tiie hull not suffered. The schooner
rame in November 24 and reported, se
vere weather nnd no damage other
than a disarrangement of her wireless
apparatus. bu since it was discovered
she was taking water slowly. It was
deemed best ,not to risk going to sea
until repairs had been finished. An
examination will be made on the dry
dock Immediately, and It is probab.e
that only caulkfng will be required.
Dorr Sails South Today.

resenting the underwriters, was yes
terday informed by wire Ihr.t the ves
sel wn rendv and It Is witil his sanc
tion that she will proceed to San
Francisco, where lurtner repairs may
be ordered. It was found t,hat a few
butts had started and that, through
severe strain, seams had opened on
deck, but they were caulked and no
new planking was required.

have not received official notice of such
Intention on the part of tue company.
However, they believe that the move is
Arrangements have already been made
for the Milwaukee to begin the operation
of all-steel passenger trains into the
Sound cities on or before April 1. It is
reported that while the plans for open
ing the new road are in progress they
Includo the extension of the service Into
Portland at the same time. Whether ne
gotiations with Northern Pacific officials
to that end have resulted favorably for
the Milwaukee road Is not yet known.
New Offices Elaborate.
In the meantime the company is mak
ing all arrangements to do business here
on a large scale. The new offices in the
Railway Kxchango building will prob
ably be tho best appointed of the kind
in the city and adequate to accommo
date the needs of a road that has local
terminal facilities instead of having its
closest tracks nearly 150 miles away. The
new offices will be ready lon- before the
first train enters the Sound cities.
"We would not be going to all the ex
pense of opening up such an elaborate
office did we not contemplate doing ex
tensive business in Portland." said one
of the local officials. ' "It is absolutely
certain that the Milwaukee will enter
Portland within the next few years.
Whether It Is over the road's own tracks
or by some leasing arrangement. I don't
think anyone knows. It will be hard to
tell Just what will be done until the
work in the Sound country is actually
Own Tracks May Be Vscd.
Acquisition by the Milwaukee of the
Tacoma & Kastern with trackage almost
to the base of Mount St. Helens is
taken as a move on the part of the road
to enter Portland over its own tracks.
However, the territory between the ter
minus of the Tacoma & Eastern and tiie
Columbia is said to preclude the possi
bility of railroad construction. In addi
tion'to this difficulty the bridging of the
Columbia would present itself. Once
across the river, the trackage into the
citv might be acquired easily.
Those who. have studied the situation
with reference to the Milwaukee operat
ing over the Northern Pacific tracks be
tween the Sound and Portland say, in
spite of the fact that the two roads are
close competitors for business in tue
Northwest, an arrangement of that kind
is likely. , .,.
Especially in view of the acquisition
of the North Coast by the Harriman
lines is it considered possible. It is
pointed out that the right of the Mil
waukee to use the Northern Pacilic
tracks may be exchanged for a trackage
arcement by which the Hill road would
enter the territory of the Milwaukee in
Eastern Washington.
Common-User Clause Aids.
Nothing could prevent the Milwaukee
from crossing the Columbia River bridge,
as a "common-user" clause was Inserted
in the contract at the time the structure
was built.
With double-tracking of the line be
tween here and the Sound, the operation
of the Milwaukee trains as well as those
of the Northern Pacilic. Great Northern
and Oregon & Washington, would be
practicable. The fact that the Milwau
kee entered Seattle over the Northern
Pacific rails during its construction
period seems to give weight to the cur
rent report.
The. movement of the new road to
enter this city in this manner does not
provide for the operating of freight
rains. The Milwaukee can handle its
freight out of this city over tho O. R. K
N tracks to Plummer. Idaho, where the
two lines have a physical connection. .
At any rale the agreement, if it Is
mode, will be only teniorary, as the
announced intention of the.Mllwat.kee is
to secure its own tracks into Portland.
