George E. Chamberlain And Tom
Richardson Leave Portland
Wednesday On Alliance.
Marshfield nnd North Bend Will Take
Good Care of Their Emi
nent Guests.
Governor Chamberlain and Tom
Richardson are due to arrive on Coos
Bay Thursday or Friday of this week
and the cities on the hay are making
elaborate preparations for a fitting
program for the reception of Ore
gon's chief executive, and Its fore
most advocate, Tom Richardson. It
is also possible that George Steel,
state treasurer, may be in the party,
but nothing positive is known re
garding this.
A meeting of Marshfleld's Cham
ber of Commerce will be held In the
office of the Investment Securities
company tonight, wiien detailed ar
rangements will be made for the
Itinerary of Tom Richardson. It is
the desire of the members to thor
oughly acquaint Mr. Richardson with
the resources of Coos county and the
Coos Bay country. With that end in
view the members will endeavor to
pilot Mr. Richardson over the
entire county.
Governor Chamberlain will be
taken care of in Marshfield by Coos
Tribe No. 33. Governor Chamber
lain will on his visit here be initiated
into the mysteries of the local Red
men lodge. Sacajawea council, No.
9, the ladles auxiliary, will partici
pate in a banquet and reception
which will be given by the Redmen
on the occasion of the initiation. It
will be the event of Marshfleld's so
cial season.
Governor Chamberlain will De the
recipient of a banquet and reception
by -the North Bend Commercial club
at which the ladies will be present.
The importance of the visit of Rich
ardson and the governor to the Coos
Bay country can not be enlarged on
too much. It will place this country
prominently before the eyes of
thousands of people, and will result
in much press publicity..
From Coos Bay Governor Cham
berlain will go down to the Rogue
river to visit the hatcheries belong
ing to R. D. Hume. In a letter to
F. H. Brigham of the North Bend
Chamber of Commerce he says his
visit here will probably be of short
duration on that account, as id com
pany with a deputy state fish warden
who is with him he wishes to
make a thorough inspection of the

Mayor Straw and Mayor Simpson will

cities if the length of the visit per

ceipt of a letter from the governor
relative to his visit here. The letter
"George N. Farrln, Esq., Marshfield,
"My Dear Sir: I am in receipt of
your favor of .the 3d instant. In re
ply permit to say that I expect to
leave Portland for Mctrshfleld on the
14th. It Is the present intention of
Mr. George A. Steele, state treasurer,
Mr. Tom Richardson, manager of the
Chamber of Commerce, Portland, and
possibly one of the deputies of the
master fish warden, to accompany
me. From Marshfield we expect to
visit Wedderburn, and with Mr.
Hume to inspect his feeding pond for
young salmon on Rogue river, in or
der that we may form some idea as
to the propriety of establishing a
similar pond for similar purposes on
the Columbia rivei ror the propaga
tion of salmon taken at the several
hatcheries here. Mr. Hume advised
us that he would arrange to take us
from Marshfield to his hatchery, and
I am writing him today advising him
of the time we expect to start for
Marshfield. If you see him at Marsh
field, therefore, about the time the
Alliance arrives, kindly advise him
of the program your people have so
hospitably arranged for our enter

Six Lines Out Of Twenty Operate In
Strike Ridden San
Informs Newspaper Men He Will
Have Hcadquai Tcrs in Ferry
Building All Summer.
San Francisco ( May 13. One
hundred cars, manned and guarded
by 300 non-union strike breakers,
were operated today from 4 to 7 p.
m. on six of the twenty odd lines of
the United Railways. There were
scores of acts of individual violence,
but no riot beyond the ability of the
police to put down. About forty
thousand passengers were carried
during the day. Thousands of them,
as well as the carmen, were subject
ed to intolerable insults at the hands
of union men and their sympathizers,
who cursed foully at the passing cars
and the people In them. President
Calhoun in a statement to the Asso
ciated Press stated that he would not
take back any striker until he sur
renders his union card and signs a
contract to remain non-union as long
as he remains in the employment of
the company.
Governor Gillette today Informed
the newspaper men who called on
him that he would maintain head
quarters in the ferry building all
A new factor was created in the
car strike today by the discussion at
a meeting of the board of supervisors
of the advisability of the city's tak
ing over the Geary street cable line,
which Is owned by the city and
leased to the corporation operating
it, and of operating it on a f 3 a day
basis for the eight-hour day demand
which precipitated the present strike
on the United Railways. The super
visors did not reach a decision.
Residents Have Co-operated With
Mayor nnd Result Has Been
Vast Improvement.
The .movoment to clean up Marsh
field has been almost universal, and
the city presents an entirely differ
ent appearance than It has for
months. There are however, some
of the property holders who Jiave not
cleaned up yet, and the mayor will
today give them a chance by keeping
the wagons going over the city.
The weather forecast for to-
day follows: Oregon, eastern
Washington and Idaho, fair and
warmer; Washington, fair and

Cents Advance Over the
Present Prices.
The local market condition is still
on the boom. Especially is this true
of flour, which will in a few days
take another rise of perhaps 50 cents
a barrel, and perhaps it may go up
$1. This rise Is directly due to the
sudden rise of wheat In the east, It
having gone up $2 per ton in the
past few days, and flour has gone up
fl a barrel in the same locality.
The coast mills aie refusing orders

Men on Special Venire Offer Various
Excuses to Avoid
Boise, Idaho, May 13 Only a part
of the day was given over to actual
work in tho Haywood trial, and tho
one step forward was tho qualifica
tion of a single talesman who seems
marked for peremptory challongo
later. Tho rest of tho time went to
tho talesmen of special venire and
hearing excuses which made it im
possible for them to servo the statq
at this time. Judge Wood called tho
case at 2 o'clock, and at onco gave
attention to the 100 men summoned
by Sheriff Hodgln In a special veniro
issued Thursday last.
Tho court asked those who had
special excuses to offer to come for
ward, and up surged a little mob of
thirty-five. Seven were sick, several
moro had sick wives, and there were
a number of ploy riders who must
ride hard theso days. Next tl"ro
was a batch of federal grand ju'-jri
who were under call to meet Juno
15, a date that would surely con
flict with this trial. After them
trooped a little column of county offi
cials, great nnd small. There were
administrators of estates that would
suffer by tholr enforced absence.
Two bankers had to watch and count
coin of national banks.
It took until 2:30 for Judge Wood
to sort out those deserving excuse,
and when he had finished there re
mained 7G men In tho panel. In an
hour devoted to examining talesmon,
Ellsworth Lister, a young farmer
who had vainly striven to bo excused,
wont down beforo tho objection for
tho prosecution for implied bias.
Walter Shaw succeeded him. Shaw
is a brother of a member of tho
Idaho legislature, and Is now a farm
er, but was formerly a meat cutter
at Everett and Seattle. Ho was In
definite in his answers and Is gener
ally labeled for a peremptory chal
lenge. Tho examination of Mr. Haw
lay for tho prosecution was again
brief today, and that of E. F. Rich
ardson long and searching. To court
this afternoon came Julien Stuenen
borg, son of tho murdered governor,
a tall sturdy youth strikingly like his
father In face and figure. For two
hours he sat with tho members of
tho Boise bar, not ten feot from tho
prisoner Haywood. Ho spoke to no
one, and remained a quiet and unob
trusive visitor. Tho Haywood group
was tho same as last Thursday. They,
too, were quiet and unobtrusive ob
servers of the proceedings.
