v Viewing Corpse Sweetheart
' . Only 19 Not Convinced.
When Lloyd W. Chick, a -jewelry
talesman, stepped off a Southern Pa
cifies electric train In Portland Fri-
day ho was greeted by his Bweetheart
as one coming from the grave. A few
minutes later Mr. Chick's employer was
welcoming him in undisguised aston
Ishment, and in less than half an hour
telegrams were on their way to carry
Joy to a mother who was hurrying to
Portland, supposedly to Chick's funeral.
ana to other relatives.
This changing of sorrow to Joy xln a
circle of friends and relatives was the
result of one of the most remarkable
cam of mistaken identity that has
come to light in Portland. Last Wednes
day morning a body, evidently of a sui
cide, was found hanging in the rest'
room on the plaza block. Thursday it
was identified as Chick and the identi
fication seemed so complete as to pre
clude any possibility of mistake.
Among those who viewed it and estab
lished the identity was Miss Florence
Alexander, of Spokane, sweetheart of
Mr. Chick, and Miss Alexander s par
ents; Louis B. Marks, a dealer in novel
ties, whose goods Chick sells: H. Rossi,
a fellow workman, and Mrs. Eva Berry,
a friend, and several business ac
quaintances. Mlaa Alexander Doubted.
Of those who saw the body only Miss
Alexander had any doubt that it was
Chick. The clothing, Mr. Marks said
last night, was identical with that worn
by Chick, and the features appeared so
familiar as to leave no question In the
minds of those who saw him. Rossi
ven said that certain scars helped to
establish the identity.
Then, yesterday afternoon, reputy
Coroner Smith received a telephone
message from Amity, Or., from a man
who said ha was Lloyd W. Chick. At
first It was thought that someone was
relaying a grim joke, and Detectives
Royle and Moloney were set at work
to solve the mystery. They got in
touch with Chick at Amity and the
latter took the first train for Port
land, arriving last evening.
Miss Alexander, who alone had any
hope that Mr. Chlck'stlll was alive, met
him at the train. Together they went
to the office of Mr. Marks, who had
Just been taking a nap, and at first
thought he was dreaming.
Reaction Is Happy.
Later they went to the home of Miss
Alexander's parents. Mr. and Mrs. Julius
J I. Alexander, 1332 Belmont street,
where there was a happy reunion.
Mrs. Ci. H. Chick, Mr. Chick's mother,
will arrive in Portland at 8:S0 o'clock
this morning, but the ending of the
trip will be quite different from what
ahe had expected. A telegram con
veying the good news Intercepted her
last night at Glendale. Another tele
gram was sent to Mr. Chick's sister,
who had remained In Oakland.
"I had the shock of my life this
morning when I read the report of my
death," said Mr. Chick. "It would not
have been so bad had I not realized
that my friends and relatives would
also know about It, and I lost no time
In letting them know I was safe."
Meanwhile no light has been thrown
on the real identity of the body that
lies at the Coroner's office.

Autumn leaves and Halloween decora

elaborate programme was given from
9 to 10:30.
Every boy had striven to outdo the
others In making his room attractive
and decorative. In one room way down
the hall were hung Japanese lanternJ,
and in the window sat a young man
playing a dreamy banjo-selection. Not
one of the rooms failed to typify the
ideal side of a combined home and
community life. A number of the
rooms were, it was asserted, "Just
slicked up a bit." but others were hung

AS SEAPORT FOUND
Co-operation of Railroads and
Dealers in Poultry Im
ports and Exports Vital.
INTERCHANGE IS ESSENTIAL
Establishment of Local Industries
to Consume Incoming Goods and
Produce for Foreign Trade
Part of Programme.
In Its study of the steps necessary to
build up Portland as a world seaport.
now that the barrier f the Columbia
River bar has been permanently re
moved, the trade and commerce bureau
of the Chamber of Commerce, work
ing with the trarfic and transporta
tion and the manufacturers and In
dustries bureaus, has found that three
main factors are involved.
First of these isto obtain the active
co-operation of railroads in routing
their through freight, inbound as well
as outbound, by way of this port.
Second is the co-operation of dealers
In handling all possible Imports and
exports in their territory through this
Third is the necessity of balancing
off the outbound and Inbound trade
by establishing Industries here that
will consume commodities from every
territory where merchants of this port
go to sell, thereby not only drawing a
big inbound trade here, but supplying
the essential inbound cargoes for the
vessels of steamer lines establishing
connections with Portland.
New Ship Line 'Assured.
As told previously In The Oregonlan,
the Chamber has already accomplished
much. It is conducting negotiations
with 14 steamship lines, and has posi
tive assurances that at least three, and
perhaps five, will establish connections
here within the next 12 months.
To assure the permanance of these
lines by keeping them supplied wita
plenty of outbound and inbound
freight, however, the three phases of
the problem cited must all be solved.
How much may be done by the rail
roads In the routine of inbound as well
as outbound through freight by way of
a certain port when they desire to
route it thai way is illustrated by a
case with which Portland ehippers are
familiar. Some years ago- when the
Portland & Asiatic line was operated
direct from Portland to the Orient by
the O. R. & N.. now the O.-W. R. & N.
Company, their steamers brought here
in their inbound cargoes great quan
tities of matting from Japan.
This port, in consequence, was for
years the main Pacific Coast distribut
ing point for matting. The O. R. & If.
exercised its influence to have this
commodity shipped to this country via
Portland. With the withdrawal of the
Portland & Asiatic, these matting Im
ports were diverted to San Francisco
and Puget Sound.
Railroad Co-operation Essential.
In outbound through freight the influ
ence of the railroads is even more po
tent, for they control the routing of
most of this traffic. So to ensure tne
success of steamship lines, it is point
ed out, co-operation of the railroads
io first of all essential.
A more aggressive determination by
dealers in this section to handle all
possible exports and all possible im
ports through this port is also neces
sary. If this determination can be
aroused, it should not be difficult of
accomplishment, for this city's 154,000
miles of trade territory can be served
on lower average commodity rates,
the study by the chamber's experts
has demonstrated, by way of Port
land than through any other port.
The population of this great trade ter
ritory is approximately 1,400,000.
But the third factor, that of balanc
ing off the outbound and inbound
trade by establishig local induetrles
that will consume some commodltl-s
from every territory where merchants
of this port go to sell, ranks in import
ance with the first factor named, that
of co-operation by the railroads in
routing of through freight.
The Chamber is now making an
earnest study of this problem, with a
view to determining what industries
are needed and then bringing about
The principle is that there must be
an interchange of commodities.
GIRL-WIFE IS OVERCOME
Philadelphia Court Scene of Swoon,

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 17. A pathetic
scene was witnessed in the police sta

testifying against her young husband
and hearing him sentenced to three
months - in the House of Correction,
staggered from the court and swooned

man Miller and the matron. It was
some minutes before she could be re

scarcely out of her teens, and a bride
of slightly more than a year.
John G. Brooks, her husband, was
arrested on a charge of disorderly con
duct. The police say he threatened
Mrs. Brooks at the home of her mother,
on Montgomery avenue near -Twelfth
street. Mrs. Brooks told of her mar
ried life and how her husband left her
a few weeks after her baby had been
born. Brooks, she said, was living at
104 North Nineteenth street, and, al
though they were living apart, he an
noyed and threatened her on several
occasions, she said. He was formerly
employed by the Philadelphia Rapid
'Car you get on without him?" Mag
istrate Morris asked her. "If you can,
