OREGON FIR PICKED
Room on Liner Santa Catalina
to Have Fine Finish.
WORK TO EXPLOIT STATE
George McDowell, Agent for Fleet,
Wins Sanction or Owners on I'se
or Home AVood 4 00 Men to
AVork on Kepairs.
Oregon or Douglas fir, the best speci
mens of slashed and edge grain that
can be selected, will bo used In the
finish of one of the main apartments
aboard the Grace liner Santa. Catalina.
which Is being repaired by the Wil
lamette Iron and Steel Works. Bert
C Ball, manager of that plant, said
last night that it had not been deter
mined which room would be selected
for the work. Others are to be re
stored in the original finish of oak.
George McDowell, Portland agent for
the fleet, has worked for several weeks
to obtain the sanction of those Inter
ested for the use of fir, and the Santa
Catalina will have the distinction of
being the first deepwater vessel to
have such an interior finish, the idea
being to treat the material finally so
that all the grain effects, which have
made fir famous from a natural-finish
standpoint, will be prominently and
artistically brought out.
Fir Attract Tourists.
. On the steamer II. B. Kennedy, a
speedy Puget Sound vessel that the
Willamette Iron and Steel Works con
structed, the saloon was finished In
Oregon fir. and it is said that tourists
riding on the fleet steamer are always
attracted by the grain. Of course river
vessels and others built here have con
eiderable fir included in the super
structure, as well as hulls when they
are of wood, but paint Is applied as a
rule and the beauty of the grain is
As the Santa Catalina will resume
her route between Portland and New
York, the Oregon room will be in
spected by thousands, and that the his
tory of the finish may live, although
the ship may change officers familiar
with the material, a. brass plate is to
be affixed to the wall setting forth the
character of the wood, details as to
how it was obtained and turned out
and the home of the firm installing it.
40O Men to Work on Craft.
The Santa Catalina was damaged
October IS in a fire that broke out
aboard when she was near Columbia
City on the last leg of her voyage from
Xew York to Portland. After Her cargo
was discharged here and a. complete
survey made of the damage sustained,
a contract was entered into with the
Willamette Iron and Steel Works for
the repairs. In less than an hour after
the company received the ship a crowd
of men were aboard tearing away plates
and other damaged material and gen
erally cleaning up the debris. That
work has been completed and the first
new material was delivered at th
plant Friday, and as more is to be on
the ground tomorrow, it is hoped tn a
week to have fully 400 men employed
on the vessel. A small amount of new
work has been started, such as could
be taken care of preliminary to the
actual rebuilding of the amidship sec
tion. It will be about six weeks be
fore finishing the interior or the super
structure is begun and the final touches
on the Job will follow soon after.
DISENGAGED FLEET GROWING
Foreign and Domestic Carriers Find
Haven for Rest.
In the Columbia and Willamette rivers
owners at last have concluded are ideal
facilities for laying up idle vessels, the
natural fresh-water harbors providing
conditions that are most favorable in
keeping hulls clear of marine growth,
while the absence of bad weather on
most of the stretch, and the fact the
lower harbor in protected from most
quarters, adds to the desirability of
In the past nearly all idle tonnage j
has bt.-en assembled at San Francisco,
or. rather, about the bay there and
principally in Oakland Creek. But this
year a greater fleet than ever before,
including the salmon ships, is held in
the river. The largest vessels are the
ticrman bark Arnoldus Vinnen, at Clif
ton, which reached the river October
10; the German bark Dalbek, arriving
July 28, which is at the Victoria dol
phins, and the German bark .Kurt, held
at Astoria since September 11. Those
vessels, like all German merchantmen
on the Coast not being operated by the
Government, are held inactive because
of fear of capture.
One additional foreign carrier, the
Uritlsh schooner David Evans, is at
Astoria, where she arrived from the
Orient July 23, and in her class are the
schooners Mabel Gale, which reported
July 6; the Irene, September Virginia,
Ausura;;w. F. Jewett, October 9, and
Hie Kins Cyrus, October 10. The
steamers Temple K. Dorr and Nehalem
are laid up at St. Helens, where they
arrived this month. At Portland the
steamers Quinault and Thomas L. Wand
arc held temporarily as they were
libeled, and besides the steamers Al
liance and Golden Gate and the gaso
line schooner Anvil are out of service
at the O. W. P. dock, with the gasoline
hchooner Jack Burnham moored on the
west side of the upper harbor, as she is
to be sold to satisfy claims.

600,000 feet capacity. She is to load
here in February. - Davies & Fehon

week ago with a full load of lumber
Lumber charters for the week have
been the Japanese steamer Kenkon
Maru. by the China Import & Export
Lumber Company, to load here for
Shanghai: the Japanese steamer Kei
shiu Maru, by J. J. Moore & Co., to load
at a North Pacific pert for Australia
or the Far East; the Russian ship
Samoena for lumber from Portland to
the United Kingdom, and the Hall for
Australia. In addition, W. R. Grace &
Co. are sending the Norwegian steam
er Tricolor to the Columbia from Van
couver, B. C, by way of Eureka, and
her lumber cargo is to be dispatched
There is no prospect of a spurt In
Australian shipments, say lumbermen,
who regard the business being trans
acted as only of the usual nature and
in the way of material that must be
obtained, because a year ago exports to
the Antipodes were heavy and nearly
all orders moved In tramp steamers.
Save for the two Japanese vessels tak
en, there is little in prospect for a re
sumption of the Far Eastern movement.
There was an inquiry recently from
North jChina for railway timbers and
such material, but it is thought that
the order will be placed in Japan.

WORK ON PVLITZEK GAUGED
Pilot Schooner to Be Returned to
Station Off Columbia River.
To ascertain the condition of the
pilot schooner Joseph Pulitzer, which
has been lying at the St. Johns drydock
since retired by the Port of Portland
from service oft the Columbia River
bar, a partial survey was made yes
terday by Harry Campion, superintend
ent of towage and pilotage; Captain
Astrup, of the tug Oneonta, and t red
Pape, master mechanic. A further in
spection may be made later, but it la
not believed there is a great amount
of work to be Jone before she can be
made ready for sea.
The Port of Portland Commission
meets in special session Tuesday after
noon to consider further the recom
missioning of the Pulitzer and it is
believed that she will be prepared for
active service without delay. As the
Sierra Miranda was picked up off the
river late at night recently and the
Norwegian ship Hero was taken in tow
by - the tug Wallula off the river at
9:45 o'clock Friday night, some shipr
pers believe that with the schooner on
station many delays would be averted
as pilots could board vessels at night
and if possible hold them in the vicinity
of the river until daylight.

INJURY TO CREDIT FEARED
Public Opinion in TTnlted States Re

'. AMSTERDAM. Dec 12. via London.
In a. long article dealing with the pos

Important role in the conclusion of
peace among the European powers, the
Cologne Gazette says that the "peace
movement in America is not inspired by
Germany," and that "American bank
ers with German names, in urging the
desirability of peace, render a doubtful
service to Germany."
Such language, the newspaper says.
is likely to be misconstrued as an Indi
cation that Germany is exhausted by
the war, and, it adds, such notices only
tend to Injure German credit with neu
tral states. ,
Americans Regarded aa Uafrleadly.
Despite all friendliness with America,
the Cologne Gazette continues, Germans
must not allow themselves to be de
ceived, and they must look in the face
the fact that America cannot be an
arbitrator in the fight between Ger
many and Great Britain.
"It would be an -ostrich policy," the
newspaper declares, not to recognize
that public opinion -in America, taken
as a whole, is entirely friendly to Great
Britain. It may be argued, it says, that
the American Government has observed
the strictest neutrality, "but one can be
neutral in an indifferent way, and, on
the whole, American neutrality has been
favorable to Great Britain.'
Confidence Is Lacking.
The newspaper then says:
"In view of all this, we cannot have
In. America the confidence we ought to
be able to repose in a power which
would act as an impartial arbitrator in
regard to an arrangement of peace.
"We cherish no feeling of Irritation
against America because she is friend
ly to Great Britain. Such a feeling is
only natural, as Great Britain is
America's motherland; but it is just
fox this reason that we fear prejudice
and must, in a friendly but firm man
ner, reject America as an arbitrator."

IMMUNITY PLEA ABSURD
Milwankie Hotels Have Xo Special
Privilege, Governor Says.
SAL.E5I, Or., Dec. 12. Special.)
Governor West today characterized al
leged statements that certain hotels in
Milwaukie were Immune from prose'
cution because he had granted therh
charters as absurd. He said the state
ments had been made by officials of the
"This office cannot grant charters of
any kind to anyone," said the Governor.
"If either of the hotels hold charters
of any kind they could have been ob
tained only through the hotels having
been incorporated under the laws of the
Btate throueh the corporation depart
ment. 8uch a charter, however, would
not give protection to anyone connect
ed with the organization if such per
son were found violating: the criminal
laws of the state or ' municipality, as
the officers and others connected with
these resorts are subject to the crimi
nal laws of the state and any other
contention is childish."
SELF DEFENSE PLEA
Mrs. Grier, Who Shot Hus
band, Tells of Threats.
OTHER ATTACKS ASSERTED
Brutal Treatment Through Married
Life Is Declared and Shooting;
Will Be Held Due to Fear of
5Ian Who Maltreated Her.
ALBANY. Or.. Dec. 12. (Special.)
That she ahot in self-defense will be
the ground on wnlch Vada Grier will
seek to justify the killing: of her hus
band. Frank Orier, when she is placed
on trial for murder in tho second de
gree in the Circuit Court here next
week. This was indicated in.the open
ins; statement of the case by her coun
The defense wiii maintain that Grier
started toward her with a pitchfork
at first and then reached toward his
hip-pocket with a threat to "finish
her," and that because of his allegred
conduct in inflicting; physical injury
on her before she thought it necessary
to fire to save her life. Grier was
found to be unarmed after the shooting-,
but the defense will maintain that
from appearances Mrs. Grier was led
to believe her life was in danger.
That more than one person saw the
shooting: was developed in the open
ing: statements yesterday. While S. G.
Wilson was the only person at the
scene, it appears that at least two
others saw part of the events which
culminated in Frank Orler's death at
the ha mis of his wife. That the woman
fired several shots in addition to the
one which sent the death-causing- bul
let into her husband's abdomen also
Cave. Delayed For Convenience.
Because, owing; to the few trains be
tween Albany and Mill City and their
time of running, the large number or
witnesses in the ccse would have had
to come to Albany tonight and remain
over Sunday if the case had begun
Monday morning, the introduction of
evidence will not begin until Tuesday
morning-. Monday will be devoted to a
view of the premises where the Khoot-
lne; occurred. The jury will so to Mill
City for that purpose Monday morn
ing-. Judsre Kelly, before whom the
case will be tried, will (ro with the jury
nd take personal charare of the in
District Attorney Hill, in making the
openingr statement of the case on be
half of the- state, after the Jury had
been impanelled yesterday, said that
Grier was delivering hay which he had
sold to S. G. Wilson, at the time of
the tragredy. He said that Grier owned
two tons of hay in a barn on a place
where Grier had lived before he end
his wife had separated a few weeks
before. Grier and Wilson had hauled
one load of hay from the barn and had
crone back for a second load when the
Deliberation Is Charged.
"The defendant knew th:.t Grier had
been at this barn." said. Mr Hill, "and
was there armed with -a rifle when he
returned. Orier and Wilson came up
and had backed the wagon around to
et the second load of hay when with
out any warning- she deliberately shot
Grier. She also tried to shoot Wilson.
There were several shots fired. The
evidence will vary on the number as
met rinng- was rapid, out tnere were
not less than three shots, and possibly
as many as six. One witness saw all
of the shooting and others saw a part
of tho affair.
The state will be able to show that
the shooting- was done deliberately and
maliciously, that tne woman went there
for that purpose and carried out her
"The defendant." said M. V. Weath
erford, her attorney, in making; the
opening statement of the case for the
defense, "is a woman about 27 years
old, weigrhing- 1C5 pounds. Her hus
band, who Tat 8, weighed about BOO
pounds and was a strong-, robust, atb
letio man. For about a year prior to
last July the defendant- and her hus
band had resided in a. tent near this
barn, and Mrs. Grier kept her cow
there. She had the cow in a pasture
during1 tho Summer and returned hor
to this barn in the Fall. In the mean
time she and her husband had had
trouble and he had abandoned her
there and gone to Stayton.
T' reat Is Alleiced.
"Mrs. Grier was feeding her cow this
hay, which was all the feed she had.
Grier came there, tore the roof off the
barn and was taking away the hay.
Mrs. Grier was at the corral there mint
ing her cow and asked him to leave the
Grier had a pitchfork In his hands,
said Mr. Weatherford, and started to
ward the defendant. "I'll finish you
right here." he It, alleged to have said,
and turned to get a revolver, she
thought, according to her assertion.
Mrs. Grier was In the habit of carrying
a 22-caliber rifle about with her, coun
sel said, and she had it there that
morning and, picking it up, fired with
out aiming. Mr. Weatherford said the
evidence would dlsclote that it was
plainly a case of self-defense.
That during their married life Grier
had been extremely brutal to his wife
was tr declaration of : "r. Weather
ford. On one occasion he struck her in
the race with hi.T fist urith such for?o
that he broke a bone or cartilage in
her nose. At another timi he struck her
on the head with a book, knocking her
senseless. Once, her attorney s2.1d, her
husband had held her by her arms and
kicked her with his knee until ho broke
a pelvic bone and permanently injured
He said these experiences had Caused
her to have a great fear of Grier, and
that when he started toward her she
feared for her life.
It is expected that the Introduction
of evidence in the case will require iwo
or three days.
