LEWIS AND CLARK FAIR REFER
The Portland newspapers at last bo-
liore that tha referendum will be ul
to diAay work on the fair and they give
a variety of reasons why the referen
dum u to be called into use, but the
true reason they fail to cive. The
Plaiksxalks has tpoken to many peo
r! about the fair appropriation Mid
fully tbree-fourtha of them oppose
because it was and is a direct steal run
over the teople by the Multnomah del
egation who forced the meapure through
the legislature by virtue of political
chemes and combines, and under prom
wo of Helping other delegations to. grt
schemes through. After the Portland
robbery passed, " then the Multnomah
delegation refused to keep their part of
the contract and revral pet neasurra
were killed. Here are some of tha true
reasons of the opposition to the appro
priation. The claim is made by the Or
rgnniau that if the referendum is put in
force that it will deter work on the fair
for about two months by holding
special election. Now the Plaisdiai
has been informed that the referendum
law ie in the shape of an amendment to
the constitution ;of Oregon ; and that
amendment prescribes how any law
shjall be voted on. If this be eo. wis
were tfce brainy lawyers in th legisia
tare doing when they attemptl to
aside toe provisions of the constiftv
tiocal amendment by a legislative on
actmentT While there has been much
talk about the referendum it eeems
us that very little is known regarding the
provisions of iU terms. Several month
ago a very prominent lawver told cs
that a referendum election could or.l
be held at a general election. If tlii
is eo Portland and the papers there are
trying to "hog" through the appropria
non -wm ye, nu ye." tale we are
opposed to the dirty political method
employed by Portland and her politi
cians in foisting upon the taxpayers the
creat appropriation which is onlv
the opening wedge for a total of 2,000,
000, and we know what we are writin;
about; at this late dav, seeing that
other 6ttes have appropriated a nam
t .i . . .
uer vi niggardly, picayunisn earns, we
are in favor of letting the matter
f oOO.OQO go through at once and then
ciii ou iue .romana aog s iau close up
under the ears, eo far as future ap
propnations are concerned. It is about
time that Oregon awoke to the true sit
uation and broke the power of the
Multnomah delegation in the legisla
ture by letting Multnomah county rep
resentation be confined to that county
without any Eoater members in other
counties to help along the Multnomah
grafts. The Multnomah delegatio
methods in the legislature are a dis
grace to the Etate f Oregon, and the
quicker the rest of the state bands to
gether to resist Multnomah's specious
schemes of plunder the better it will be
It is for the people to decide from this
time on whether the dog shall wag the
tfiil or the tail the dog. Whatever is
done Portland Ehould put up five dol
lars for every one that is put up outside
f that city by taxation at large. It is
Portland that will reap the benefit;
Portland real estate that will boom;
Portland business that will be increased,
and when it somee to the settlement of
Oregon, every state west of the Rocky
mountains will have an equal chance
with Oregon. Taking all the circum
stances into consideration, we think it
bet that the referendum be not used
and the greatest reason of ail is : We
be! ieve that the special law passed for
submitting the question to an immedi
ate vote, which would be done, would
be a grand farce, and a delusion and
snare upon the public at large. The
only way to provide against such a
Hcheme would be for the petitions for
the referendum to read, to be submit
ted at the next general election, and
this would knock out the bogus special
election bill as passed by the legisia
tare. Whatever is done let it be done
legally, and avoid the pitfalls int
which that corrupt ring of political
hacks at Portland would thrust the tax
payers of the state.
The systematic stealing of money from
tie United States Mint, at Philadelphia
has resulted in an investigation, which
will likely result in the arrest aid difc
micsal of one or more of the employes.
The stealing covered a period ol prob
ably four months and the investigation
so far has revealed a shortage of aboui
W0, with a possibility that the amount
will be greater. The money stolen con
sisted of old coins which had been stored
in one of the mint's big vaults. The
theft was discovered two weeks ago and
when a general accounting was taken of
currency in the vault. Unitod 6tats
District Attorney Holland, who is con
ducting the investigation on behalf of
the Government, intimates that he
knows who the guilty - persons are, but
declines to divulge any name, until ar
rests are made.
It has gone too far to stop the appro,
priation for the Lewis and Clark fair,
by having the matter put off by the
referendum. We cannot afford to put
the state back ten years because the
graft was thrust upon ns ; and now that
the fair is assured let all the papers of
Oregon who were originally opposed to
the manner the enterprise was rail
roaded through the legislature, go in to
make it a success. We are fully per
suaded that if there is one place in the
world controlled by the Anglo-Saxon
race that needs new blood it is Oregon,

have located a site for a dam which will
be eixtv-five feet high and about two

miles wide, a space so great that it will
take the entire flow of Milk and Beaver

necessary the abandonment of twenty-

Coal Mines to be Closed.
The Western Federations of Miners
has another fight on its hands in British
Columbia. No sooner had the Western
Fuel Company of Nanaimo come to an
agreement with ita men, and the out
look for big coal output this year taken
on a favorable aspect, than James Duns
muir, owner of the largti coal fields at
Extension and Lad) smith, came to opn
war with Lis men.
The miners, for their protection, had
decided on Sunday to affiliate with the
Western Federation of Miners, the re
sult of the visit of James Baker of Spo
kane, who had come to settle the trouble
in Nanaimo, Duusmuir, who is very
stubborn when he decides on anything,
started at once to head off the affiliation,
and gave notice that on April 1st the
mines at LaJysmith and Extension
would close down, thus throwing over
1000 men out of work.
At the same time be discharged seven
men, the prime movers in the affiliation.
This angered the miners and they at
once sto; ped work, pending the arrival
of Baker, who bad in the meantime left
for Sjokane. This move of Dunsmuir's
has caused consternation among busi
ness circles on Vancouver ialaud, but
Friday Dunsmuir caused still greaterex
citment by an interviev, in which he
used decidedly heated words. He said :
"I will never recognize the Western
Federation of Miners. Rather than do
so, I will close the mines at Extension
and keep them closed for years. I will
not place my property at the mercy of
a lot of agitators,"
His interview is practically an official
statement of his position to the public.
Concluding, he said : "I have always
been ready to meet a committee repre
senting any grievance which my miners
have had. What advantage is there to
be gained by joining the Western Fed
eration? The miners have the. rip'jt
even to strike if they think propert
without joining that body."

Cot Strike Commission Report.
The salient points in the report mwle
to President Roosevelt and given lo
the public- last Saturday, of the A n
thraciteCoal Strikj Commission's awaid
made pnblicis aa follows: The miners
are given a general increase in wages, i n
most instances amounting to 10 percent,
the incroase to take effect from Novem
ber 1; 1902, aud all arreHges now duo to
btfpaid by June 1, 1903. With the
schedule thus provided as a manimum,
a sliding scale is established basod on
the price of coal, the minors to have an
increase of one per cent in pay for each
five cent increase in the selling price of
the product. Certain decreases in time
of work are granted, in some instances
to eight hours, in others to nine, the
men to receive extra pay for overtime.
All future disputes are to be referred to
a Board of Conciliation to constat of six
persons, three to be appointed by an or
ganization representing a majority of
the miners and the other three by the
operators. . Thia board s decision is to
be final, but if its members cannot agree
the question at issue shall be referred to
a Circuit Judge of the Third Federal Dis
trict, whose decision shall be final aud
binding. No suspension of work bv
lockouts or strike shall take place pond
ing the adjudication of a dispute.
1 be awards made shall continue in
force until March 31 ; 1906, and viola
tions on the part of either employe or
employer shall result in a disciplining
of the offender, but the provisions of the
award 6hall not be invalidated.
The miners union was not recognised
by the commii aion. To do so would
have been to go outride of the jurisdic
tion conferred on the commission bv the
The report also states that the claim
made by the Union that it had authority
over non-union miners is laughed at by
tho commission. The commission als-o
stated, in substance, that the union was
unreliable and not safe for the mine
operators to enter into a contract with.
The total loss occasioned by the strike
was 1 100,000,000 and was approximately
divided aa follows : As to mine owners.
4fi,100,000; to the mine emploves in
wages, $25,000,000; to the transporta
tion companies, t2S,000,000.
The award gives the miners an
advance of about 20 per cent on the old
rate of renumeration.

Last Saturday at Uohoken, X. J., a
summons was issued for Mrs. Hetty
Green, reputed to be the wealthiw t
woman in the United States, to appear
befors Recorder Stanton and explain
why she has failed to obtain a aog li
cense for her pet terrier. The complait t
against Mrs. Green was entered by
Health inspector Granelli, who .asked
for a summons on the ground that Mrs
Green had violated the, health code by
not getting a license for her dog. The
license coeta $2, and the fine for failure
to procure one ranges from 13 to $25, in
the discretion of the court.
After the summons had been issued, a
man who refused to give his name, to
the court said that Mrs. Green had
a dog license, which she obtained in New
York City, and she supposed that it was
not necessary to obtain another one
