L. W. HILL ARRIVES
AND HURRIES EAST
Great Northern Head Sees Big
Trade Revival and More
ROAD BONDS ARE PRAISED
1'armcr Is Only Person. 'Wlio Kully
Appreciates Opportunity Sow
Offered by AVar to Increase
Gains, He Thinks.
"They seem to be petting ready for
.big things back in New York," said
Louis W. Hill, chairman and president
of the Great Nortnern Hallway, as he
sped through the edge of Portland and
passed on towards Spokane and fat. .f aui
"I mean." he continued, "that as soon
as this war is over, the railroads ought
to be reaedy to proceed with some of
the development work that they sus
pended when the present depression
Maybe there will be a slight reac
tion and some readjustments after the
war ends, but I believe business will go
ahead as never before. At that, I don't
believe America is taking full advan
tage of its opportunities for trade ex
tension that the war otters."
Farmer Considered Exception.
lie made exception to this last ob
ervation, though, in the case of the
American farmer, who is increasing his
wheat acreage and at the same tn
trying to increase the yield per acre,
And this in spite of the fact that James
J. Hill father of L. W. recently pre
dieted that wheat will go down to 60
or 70 cents a bushel next year.
"I don't like to disagree with my
"dad," commented the Great Northern
head, 'but I am rather inclined to
think that he meant J1.60 or $1.70
bushel. I can't see why the demand
for wheat won't continue even after
the war, and if the demand continues
the price will stay up."
Mr. Hill was disappointed last night
when he was prevented from visiting
Portland. He was a passenger on
board the steamer Northern Pacific, in
from San Francisco.
Delay Prevent Visit.
The vessel was a few hours late In
.arriving at the Flavel dock, and con
sequently the train that brought him
with the other steamer passengers, up
from the mouth pf the river was de
layed. He and the members of his
family, who have passed the last two
months in California, came up on their
. private car to Willbridge, where Uiey
were transferred, to the regular North
Bank limited bound for Spokane. They
will continue to St. Paul.
"Father has been telegraphing me to
come home for the last week." he ex
plained, "and I guess 1 11 have to go
right straight home. I'll be back out
here in a month or eix weeks and look
over the line. Then I'll have a chance
Mr. Hill already has commenced
preparations to bring a group of Black
.foot Indians from Glacier National
;Park to the Rose Festival in June, and
41 possiDie, win arrange his time so
that he can be here for the festival.
Road Bonds Draw Praise.
Mr. Kill was much Interested In
Multnomah County's recent bond, elec
tion by which $1,250,000 was mads
available for road improvement work
in the vicinity of Portland.
"That's the stuff," he exclaimed
when told of the plans for paving the
main highways. The life of the coun
try depends upon good roads. And,jio
one knows it better than the railroad
man. You'll never fini an enterprising
railroad opposing good roads, although
the railroad business seems to suffer
as a result of them. Roads are the
companions of civilization. You'll never
find civilization without roads. They
help to develop the country and the
railroads, along with all other branches
of business, get the benefit.
In Mr. Hill's opinion three-fourths of
the people who visit the San Francisco
fair will come to Portland. The Pacific
Northwest is due to get as much benefit
out of the exposition as is California,
he thinks. He predicts a record-break
Large Business Expected.
; The new steamers Great Northern
and Northern Pacific will be in regular
service to accommodate the travel be
tween the exposition city and Portland
and Mr. Hill, among others, will be
greatly disappointed if those vessels do
not get a large share of the traffic
"That's what we built them for," he
declared, "and I look for a lot of busi
ness. For the present, at least, we'll
have to confine our extension and de
velopment efforts to those ships. They
have cost us a lot of money, but we
expect the business to make the ven
ture a success."
Mr. Hill visited the steamer Great
Northern at San Francisco a fe,w days
ago and viewed the repair work now
being done to her engines. He says it
will take six weeks or two months to
complete the repairs which are being
done under direction of the Cramps
people, of Philadelphia, who built the

ports of Xaval Base and Mi
kado's Man Denies It.
WASHINGTON. April 17. While dis
inclined to credit reports that Japan
had established a naval base at Turtle
Bay, Lower California, United States
officials Friday instituted an investi
gation to learn exactly what use the
belligerent warships were making of
Mexican territorial waters.
Secretary Daniels telegraphed Ad
miral Howard, -of the Pacific fleet.
asking him to ascertain whether there
was any foundation .for the reports.
Secretary Bryan has received no infor
mation from the American consuls in
Lower California te. the effsct that
the Japanese intend to establish a naval
base there, but it was understood he
would communicate the press reports
to them with a request for any facts
that may bear on the subject.

Enrique C. Llorente. Washington rep
resentative of General Villa, tele
graphed Estevan Cantu, military gov
ernor of Lower California, which is
controlled by the Villa faction, to make
an investigation of the situation.
Commander Nomura, naval attache
of the Japanese embassy, called infor
mally n Navy Department officials to
day and assured them that there was no
truth in the reports that any attempt
was being made to establish a permit
nent naval base. He is understood to
have explained that the presence of the
Japanese warships was due entirely to
the accident to the cruiser Asama,
which ran aground there recently.

Cabinet officers who are in touch
with American wrecking companies at
tempting to float the Asama pointed out
today that the vessel was fast In the
mud, almost to the decks. Navy off!
cers who have given attention to the
subject say it would not be surprising
if the Asama never was refloated.
Tne fact that British' colliers were
assisting the Japanese warships con
vinced high officials that there could
be no foundation for the idea that any
movement was afoot to establish a per.
Should It develop, however, that the
British and Japanese vessels were
actually using Mexican waters as a
temporary base of supplies, it is con
sidered possible that the attention of
the Mexican authorities may be called
to it by the Washington Government
and the matter also be brought to the
attention of Great Britain and Japan.

Office Space at Courthouse to
Denied All Not Paying Rent.
A resolution adopted by the County
Commissioners Thursday will oust from
the Courthouse Mose Bloch, who has
occupied office space there for several
years while he pursued his business as
a so-called "warrant shaver." The
resolution declares it to be against the
policy of the Board to permit anyone
to use office space in the Courthouse
except where rent is paid, or where
charity may be extended.
For many years Bloch has pursued
his vocation in the Courthouse, and his
business has become a firmly estab

grown rich discounting county war
rants, for which he took 1 per cent.
County Commissioner Hoi man said
yesterday that the resolution was not
