HATE FOR SAILORS LOWEST
Fort la nil Furnl.-lirs Men Cheaper
Now Thao Other Ports.
Shipping Interests are not a unit In
move Inaugurated last week to In
duce the next Legislature to amend
the sailor boarding-house law so that
the rate for furnishing sailors shall be
reduced from lit) to $10 each. Cam
paigns have been Inaugurated In the
past to remove dlf ferentlala against
Portland, and when Oregon enacted
the only boarding-house law on the
Coast and boarding-house masters
charged $10 for furnishing men and
received t:i additional, or an advance
for providing them with food and
clothing while waiting to be signed, it
was felt bv those who charter and dis
patch vessels that it was a reasonable
charge.
tin the last voyage of the British
bark Honna Franclsca from Portland
more than a year ago. an offer was
made of double the charge possible for
sailors. The skipper was willing to
pay more than $109. as It was Summer
and seamen were scarce. But he se
cured his men through the boarding
house masters, who sent to Pucet
Sound for them, and only the regular
rate was charged him. San Francisco
boarding-house masters the same sea
son secured $SS and Puget Sound
houses $75 for each man. no Portland
had considerably the best of It In rales.
When there existed a differential on
wheat amounting to Is Sd, or 30 cents,
a ton. and K. W. Wrtght went to Ku
rope as the representative of local
shipping and exporting Interests, no
question was raised by the vessel own
ers regarding the charge for sailors.
They ma.de no complaint and the ques
tion was not Involved In the differen
tial. The O. R. N. absorbed the
wheat differential in Its towage serv
ice. The sailor beardlng-house law
has worked to such an advantage that
not a single Infraction hsa been re
ported, and shipmaster are protected
at all seasons In getting men.
During the Winter months no diffi
culty is encountered in signing men.
for those who leave the t In Summer
drift back to tidewater. There Is only
one haven of refua-e for a destitute
sailor and that la the boarding-house,
for he can remain there without funds,
which la not possible at other hotels.
The boarding-house msster provide
htm wlUi food and when he la ready
to ship furnishes him with a kit of
clothes, for which he received 1 2 J or
the first month'a wages of the salt,
while the ship pays l" In addition.
There has been some competition
among the boarding-houses, so that
men have been shipped for $10. and the
legal rate has been disregarded and
the established boardlrg-houaes ac
cepted as low as $-". but It I Bald
th.it a lower rate would make the busi
ness prohibitive, unles those directing
it were to take chances of picking up
inexperienced men on the streets, when
they could no longer afford to house
them.

OVE TRIBUVAIj restrains oth.
F.R AT OREGON CITY.
Tno Sue for Money, Bank Becomes
Involved and In Mixup All
Cases Halt.
Or.EROX CITT. Or., Dec. 10. (Spe
cial. The spectacle of one cottrt re
straining another from proceeding in
a esse is the result of a suit filed here
today bv Attorney J. E. Hedges for
the Bank of Oregon City.
Two claimants to money are Involved,
one of them being a plaintiff in one
action and a defendant In another. The
nit arises from an action begun in the
Justice Court by William Knoop against
one J. Packard, who waa employed by
J. n. Cummlngs. Knoop filed a garn
ishment and obtained a Judgment, but
tried to set service on Packard, wlta
out success.
The triangular aspect of the ease
came when J. E. Seeley. tnrougn u. a.
Hockett and Justice of the Peace Sam
nn. arranged with Cummings to de
posit $50 due Knoop In the Bank of
Oregon City, simultaneously wnn tue
denosit. the money was attached on an
execution in the suit of Seeley against
Knoop. Seeley. asserting he is a Judg
ment creditor and Knopp the debtor.
Knoop and his attorney were in
Ignorance of this phase of the case.
When they discovered what waa going
on, Knoop'a attorney demanded the
money, declaring that the proceeding
was without warrant of law at the
time of garnishment, as the ault of
Knoop against Packard was dismissal
without any motion or the knowledge
of Knoop or his attorney.
Thursday. Justice of the Peace Sam
son sent a policeman to the bank to
obtain the $30. but the bank, learning
of the tangle, "felt that It could not
without hazard, pay the money to
either Knoop or Seeley. It then asked
that the Court determine the owner
ship of the money. An order was Issued
by the Court, requesting one of the
officers of the bank to show cause
within 24 hours why the hank was not
in eontemnt of court.
It wa then that the bank Instituted
Its ault against Justice of the Peace
Samson, Knoop and Seeley, both of
whom claim the money, ine bang ae
nnslted the money with the Circuit
Court and asked the Court to require
the parties Interested to interplead ana
set up their rights that the rightful
owner might get the money.
Justice Samson and Seeley and their
officers and agent were enjoined from
proceeding further with the ault of
Seelev vs. Knopp until further order of
the Court or until the settlement of
the bank'a suit.

VITAL PUBLIC PROBLEM TO BE
DISCFSSED AT ECGEXE.
Civic Engineering Plan Will Be
Launched This Week at
State University.
UXIVERSITT OF OREGOX, Eugene,
Or.. Dec. 10. (Special.) During the Third
Annual Commonwealth Conference, which
Is to be held at the University of Oregon
January 12-13. an opportunity will be
given the students of the uniMaysuy to
become civle engineers in the Momotlon
of civic and economic Improvements
which primarily affect the State of Ore
gon. The discussion of vital public prob
lems will be led by the leading authori
ties of the state, and it Is probable that
those students who . are now making
a thorough study of the questions under
discussion will participate in the debates.
At the close of the session, an Informal
student body meeting is to be called to
determine the eerise of the undergraduate
body in respect to the policies outlined
duripg the conference. It is then' that
the new idea of civic engineering will be
launched. Many of the upper classmen
are already doing thesis and research
work along civic lines.

Eilers Music House to Sell Two
Carloads of Chickerings for Marine
Insurance Company's Account
We ship many of our pianos via the Great Lakes. This effects
a substantial saving in freight. Nearly all of our Chickerings are
shipped to Buffalo by rail, then to Duluth or to Chicago, by water,
then the rest of the way again by rail.- :
Among shipments recently arriving, are two carloads that while
in the steamer came in contact with some chemicals, or fumes which
marred the finish of the pianos. Mosically, that is to say in every par
ticular concerning the interior of these pianos, they are perfect Chick
erings, but the finish has become dulled or lusterless.
We are equipped to revarnish these instruments in our splendidly
appoiiteTestablishment on Pettygrove Street at 15th and 16th. But
it takes time to do this and we cfo3e our books on the last of this
. month. We would rather not carry these Chickerings over into next
year.
This being the case, we have arranged with the insurance com
pany whereby we are to sell the Chickerings at prices reduced so as
to dispose of them at once, the insurance company paying the differ
ence or loss that we suffer thereby.
The Chickering is the greatest of all great American pianos.
Ever since we commenced business in Oregon, we have sold the
Chickering, and never below its established value. Thousands of
Chickerings grace Oregon's mansions, but never heretofore has there
been opportunity to buy a brand new Chickering under price.
Tomorrow we present to 42 high-class homes the opportunity to
secure Chickerings, uprights or grands, of which the marine insur
ance people pay a liberal portion.
There are 26 upright Chickerings in this shipment. There are 16
magnificent grands. There are various styles, both grands and up
rights. To make quick work of it, we offer to accept $435 for each
ind every Chickering upright in this shipment.
TJje grands will be sold for $630 for the plain cases, while $75
more will be asked for the very fancy figured Mahogany and the
larger size.
We are anxious to close out every one of these pianos this week.
We must dispose of all of them before the close of the month, and
these prices will do it.
Here is the opportunity for many a home, or music studio, which
has heretofore been prevented, owing to the high prices, from owning
a Chickering, to get a Chickering piano:
The slight damage these Chickerings have sustained in the var
nish work will hardly ever be noticeable. We will French (dull) fin
ish any of these pianos in our shops for $12.
And if you are not prepared to pay all cash, pay one-tenth of the
price cash, and the balance in payments extending over a period of two
years or two and a half years, for the mere additional simple interest.
All of these pianos will be displayed at our Retail Establishment
No. 353 Washington Street, at the corner of Park.
- We repeat it: no chance to get a 'Chickering under price has ever
heretofore been offered. It is safe to say that such opportunity will
never be presented again.
The regular, unconditional factory guaranty, duly countersigned
by us, accompanies each piano, thu3 making every buyer positively se
cure in his purchase. Eilers Music House.
