of preparing and adopting plans for

and the making of contracts for the
purchase of supplies for the work.

Th Secretary of the Interior Is
authorized to designate one of the
members of the commission as its
chairman, who shall be in immediate
charge of the work and have power of
approval and disapproval of all admin

which consists of William C Edes,
chairman: Lieutenant Frederic Mears,

Railroad, and Thomas Riggs. Jr, are
directed to proceed to Alaska at once.
"The chairman Is to make his head
quarters at Seward; Lieutenant Mears is
to be stationed at Ship Creek, and Mr.

"The first work will be the building

Statloa" Work to Predominate.
The work will be done in large part
by station men, who will make direct
contracts with the Commission for
building distinct units of the road. This
method has been recommended to the
President by some of the most promi

ed generally in railroad construction in
the West. At the end of this season
the work done in this way will form a
basis from which it may be determined
whether It is wise to have the road
constructed as a whole or in part by

Decisions of Two Federal Judges

OREGONIAN NEWS TTREAU, Wash
ington, April 8. The Federal migratory
bird act, recently declared unconstitu
tional by the United States District
Court at Topeka. Kan., and previously
held -unconstitutional by the Federal
Court lor the Eastern District of Kan
sas, is in full force and effect in all
other Jurisdictions of the United States,
and it is the purpose of the Depart
ment of Agriculture to enforce rigidly
that law according to the intent of
Congress. The decision of the two
courts in question is not binding out
side their own Jurisdiction, and the
real constitutionality of the act is to
be tested out before the United States
Supreme Court.
Thinking the public mar be deceived
by publicity given the finding of the
Kansas court, the Department of Agri
culture Is sending out a warning
against -iolation of the migratory bird
law. and in this warning says: .
"The act of Congress protecting ml-
eratorv birds stands effective until the
Supreme Court finally decides the ques
tion of its constitutionality, m tne
eantime it is incumbent on every law-
abiding citizen to observe its provisions
and the regulations thereunder. It is
the dutv of the Department of Agricul
ture to enforce this law. and the offi
cials in charge will endeavor to do so
as long as it is in force. Reports of
violations will be carefully investigated
and when sufficient evidence is secured
they will be reported for prosecution.
In this connection, it should not be
forgotten that an offender against this,
as in the case of any other United
States law, is subject to prosecution

date of the offense committed."

OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, April 10. Under the decision of
the Interstate Commerce Commission
today, the Spokane, Portland & Seat
tle Railway Company must relinquish
its ownership and control of Th
Dalles, Portland Astoria Navigation
Company by or before June 1, 1915, its
continued ownership being held
violation of section 11 of the Panama
Canal act. The North Bank, road had
applied to the Commission for au
thority to continue its ownership of
the navigation company after . July
last, on which date, under the law, rail
road companies owning steamships
were required to dispose of water car'
riers which compete with their rail
business.
Since filing its appeal the railroad
company has continued to own and
operate two steamers between Port
land and The Dalles.
Competition Found to Exist.
The Interstate Commerce Commis
sion found that, there is competition
between the North Bank road and th
navigation company on business be
tween Portland and all points along
the Columbia River as far as Gran
Dalles. The railroad company ex
plained that it asked delay, hoping for
reasonable time in which to sell it;
steamboats at a fair price and declared
that it could not get a fair price, if
forced to sell by June 1.
In the course of its investigation th
Commission found that the steamship
company, under railroad ownership, h
been able to prevent river competition
between Portland and The Dalles, ex
cept as to one boat now operating. Tn
Commission also found that the navi
gation company had driven the Open
River Transportation Company out of
business fty canceling Its traffic agree-
ment in 1906 on one day's notice and
by thereafter rendering unprofitable
the operation of an independent
steamer on the lower river.
New Enterprise Prevented.
Concluding Its opinion the Commis
slon says: "It is clear that through
water transportation , cannot' be estab
lished or maintained between the upper
and lower rivers so long as the peti
tioner owns or controls the Tiavigation
company. It Is shown that new capital
cannot be secured to establish and op
erate a boat line in competition with
the railroad-owned boat line and that
the through line cannot profitably op
erate unless it secures a certain amount
of traffic on the lower river, particu
larly passenger traffic.
We find that the operation of the
navigation company by the petitioner
Is not in the interest of the public and
that continued ownership er control of
the navigation company By the peti
tioner will exclude, prevent or reduce
competition on tne route by water un
der consideration. It follows that The
Dalles, Portland & Astoria Navigation
Company must be completely divorced
from the Spokane, Portland & Seattle
Railway Company."
The Portland Chamber of Commerce
and commercial organizations at other
points along the Columbia River pro
tested to the Commission against the
continued ownership of the navigation
company by the North Bank road and
the decision is in accord with their
protest.
TWO STEAMERS ARE AFFECTED
Company Will Comply, Even if Ves
sels Are Tied Up to Docks.
"We have not determined what to
do with our steamship line," said C.
H. Carey, attorney for the North Bank
system, last nigrtrt.
"There is no appeal from the decision
of the commission and we do- not pro
pose to do other than to comply wit..
that decision. If we can t find a pur
chaser for the shins, we shall have to
quit operating them on June 1 and tie
hm up to the docks."
The commission's decision affects the
steamers Dalles City and the Bailey
Gatzert, operating between Portland
and Cascade Locks and between Port
land and The Dalles, respectively. Booh
vessels are used in Summer tame for
tourist passenger traffic, but always
carry considerable freight.
The railroad was ordered to dispose
of the vessels when the interstate com
merce code first went into effect, but
was granted relief from the order from
time to time. Last year tne railroad
applied for exemption from the law
and a hearing was conducted m -orx
land on that application. Yesterday's
decision of the commission is based
upon the evidence brought out at that
hearing.

told Mrs. Rublee what Colonel Roose
velt thought of pacifists. It said well,
I don't remember exactly, but it gener
alized to the effect that pacifists were
in the wrong entirely and a detriment
to the Nation. No, I do not. remember
any of the phrases or particular re
marks.
Attitude Is No Surprise.
Miss Addams declared the Colonel's
attitude was a surprise to no one;
that the Colonel was always consistent,
right or wrong, and that the Colonel
had not Incured the ' anger of the
woman's peace party and, further, that
the woman's peace party had no time
for anger, but was devoted to an
antithetical ideal peace.
'If you will read an article the
Colonel wrote several weeks ago, youf
will know almost exactly what the
letter contained." she concluded.
Colonel Roosevelt long ago expressed
himself as "more than willing" that
the epistle should be made public.
WOMAN KEEPS LETTER SECRET
Mrs. Rublee Thinks Answer Re
flects "o redit on Writer.
WASHINGTON, April 10. (Special.)
Mrs. George, Rublee. whose husband
is a member of the Interstate Trade
Commission, and who will leave here
tomorrow for Europe to Join in th
women's peace movement, declined to
night to make public the letter oppos
ing the movement which she had re
ceived from Colonel Roosevelt.
Mrs. Rublee said she would not dis
cuss the subject. It is known, how
ever, that the Colonel in his usual vig
orous style has denounced the pro
posed action of the women and has
set forth his views against the pacific
ism. Repeatedly the Colonel has de
scribed the inevitable results of failufe
to prepare and the weakness which is
the consequence of lack of an adequate
army and navy.
Mrs. Rublee's' reason, for failing to
make the letter public is her opinion
that it does not reflect credit on th
writer. She is an earnest advocate of
oeace and believes that the women
peace movement will be valuable i
showinz the dreadful effects of war
and cause governments and soldiers to
arrange their differences. Several Ger
man women have written their appre
ciation of what the women of the world
can do.
Through the spread of peace doc
trines, Mrs. Rublee hopes that alljthi
nations will agree to settle their dis
putes amicably, "by the use of brains
rather than of arms," and that after
time war will be relegated to barbar
ism .

CHICAGO. April 10. There will be
a flood of immigration to the United
States and Canada at the conclusion of
the European war, according to Sir
Thomas O'Shaughnessy, president of
the Canadian Pacific Railroad, who
was here today en route to San Fran
cisco.
'The men of Northern and Central
Europe," he said, "are beginning to
feel freer to leave their native lands
than ever before. Forced military
service, among other things, must be
more repellant to them now than ever
before. The new lands on this conti

WASHINGTON, April 10. The new

White House.
If after the war any foreign con
cerns should start cutting rates to
drive American plants out of business.
I see no reason why the trade commis
sion should not step in, he said. It
seems to me that Americans should go
ahead and try to manufacture the need
ed dyestuffs to meet the demand of the
textile manufacturers.

WASHINGTON", April 10. Represent
ative Gardner, of Massachusetts, gave
dinner here tonight to the reserve
Army of the United States. . Eight of
the 16 reservists attended. .The pro
ceedings were intended to express the
views of the diners on the state of tne
National defenses.
Mr. Gardner made the principal
speech and referred to the recent loss
of the submarine F-4, which he charac
terized as a "gruesome comment on Sec
retary Daniels policy of peaceful per
suasion and pretense of preparedness.
The loss of life on the F-i." said
he, "Is due to Secretary Daniels' neg
lect of our submarines."
Mr. .Gardner related an incident,
which he said occurred a year ago,
when, "in the minds of many people,
there was serious danger of interna
tional trouble in the Pacific Ocean."
A joint board of Army and Navy of
ficers, he said, went to President Wil
son with recommendations that certain
precautions be taken immediately.
The President gasped with anger at
the effrontery of these distinguished
officers," said Representative Gardner,
'and peremptorily forbade the board
to meet again. If this statement of
mine is denied, I challenge the Presi
dent to permit a public investigation."
CHIEF INDICTED AGAIN
LOS ANGELES BRAXD JURY DIS
REGARDS GIRL'S "CONFESSION."
Cfcarse of Perjury Made Agaiast Miss
Desparte Sebastian AccuMed of.
Offense She Described.
LOS ANGELES, April 10. Charles -K.
Sebastian, Chief of Police, indicted sev
eral days ago on the charge of having
contributed to the delinquency of Kdith
Serkin. a minor, was indicted again to
day for alleged offenses against Vic
toria Desparte, a delinquent girl, aiiss
Desparte also was indicted. The charge
against her is perjury.
Miss Desparte was remanded to jail
in default of $2500 bail on the perjury
charge. Sebastian, being already under
bonds of 7500 on two indictments
charging him with the Serkin offense,
and also alleged attempts to intimidat
ing the grand jury, was not required to
furnish further security.
The indictment against Sebastian to
day was voted by the grand jury in a
session called to investigate the con
fession Miss Desparte madw to Judge
Taft, of the Superior Court, . yesterday
that her sworn statement to the inquis
itors two weeks ago, accusing Sebas
tian, was a fabrication. Officials of the
District Attorney's office said that the
jury had shown that it placed no cred
ence in the girl's reputation by indict
ing Sebastian on her original charge,
and then indicting the girl herself for
perjury.
The bills were filed in the court of
Presiding Judge Wood, in the midst of
preliminary proceedings against Sebas
tian and his attorney, Karl Rogers, on
the indictments returned against them
several days ago, alleging that they at
tempted to influence the- grand Jury
during the investigation of the Des
parte case. The Indictments returned
today also accuse the police chief of
an offense against Miss Desparte's
chum, Lucille Livingston, who appeared
with her at the first Inquiry and was
