Complaints of All Kinds Flood
Headquarters Of That
Body at Salem.
SALEM AND ALBANY NEXT
Complaints In Those Cities Are For
Depots and Better Sanitary
The Railroad Commission, estab
lished by the last session of the Ore
gon legislature, Is finding demands
pouring in upon it from every sec
tion of the state. There are com
plaints about the service, about car
shortage, about sanitary conditions
everywhere, and the Commission
finds itself overwhelmed with ap
peals for adjustment of the many
difficulties the populace believes are
ready for correction. The people of
Oregon have been long-suffering and
now that there is promised relief
through this commission, no one Is
backward about filing opinions and
The Commission was organized on
the 25th of February and since that
time has been flooded with work.
Chief among the complaints which
reach the office of the Commission
at Salem are these: car shortage in
the Willamette valley; Inadequate
local service both through the south
and east routes of the Southern Pa
cific system in Oregon. Lately the
Commission heard the complaints
from the patrons of the Oregon
Railroad and Navigation Co. This
hearing was held at Pendleton and
the complainants presented argu
ments for a local train between
Pendleton and Portland. They hold
that the through trains are not tak
ing proper care of the passenger ser
vice between those two cities and
asked for better service In the way
of a local train. The finding of the
Commission has not been rendered.
Next week the Commission will
hold two hearings, one at Salem and
the other at Albany. The former
will affect the state as a whole, and
the matters to be presented are, de
mands for depots In several cities,
Improvement of sanitary conditions
in various localities, and general
complaints covering matters before
mentioned. The Albany hearing Is
to bo with special regard to the dan
gerous position of the depot at Al
bany and a request for a union depot
for the Corvallis & Eastern and the
Southern Pacific. At Albany there
are tracks between th eclty and the
depot, and this fault 13 up for ad
justment and change.
The railroad, in answering the
complaint respecting car shortage in
the Willamette valley at a hearing
recently held, claim the cars used
for much of the lumber shipped
southward, are of peculiar build,
and suitable only for hauling cer
tain commodities, as piling, and
must be returned empty.
The Commission consist of Os
wald West, Salem; C. B. Atchison,
Portland; T. K. Campbell, Cottage
Grove; G. O. Goodall, LaGrande,
secretary. Headquarters of the Com
mission are maintained in Salem,
and one member of the board Is al
ways there to keep conversant with
the body's business and to transact
whatever business is brought to the
office. Mr. Campbell was not pres
ent at the hearing held here yester
day, having remained at Salem.

Shipyard Fire Near Bandon
Proves Costly Experience
For Two Men.
SAFE CONTAINED MONEY
Flames Wore Not Discovered In Ship
Until Loml I'xplosiou
One of the sub-contractors who was
engaged at the Price ship yard near
Bandon, was In Marshfield yester
day. Ho met with a considerable
loss when the yard went up In
smoke. He had $800 In currency
In the ofllce safe which proved to
be not fireproof. His money was
destroyed, as well as that of another
man who had $1,G00 in the recep
tacle. This gentleman wns con
nected with the company which was
having the Daisy built, and he hopes
to recover the money he lost.
In speaking of the fire, he said
the flames were not discovered soon
er for a very good reason; the fire
had burned In the hold and could
not be seen from the outside. There
were quantities of paints and oils
below and nothing was known of
the trouble until the gas which had
accumulated exploded, literally lift
ed the deck from its fastenings.
The ship then fell over on its side
and the flames quickly communicated
to the Flfleld. There had been ten
thousand dollars paid on the Fifield
and Mr. Price was to receive the bal
ance, $1S,000, on the Daisy on July
20, the date set for the launching.

Expresses Himself In Favor of Mob
ilization of Naval Ships
The New York World, which is
preparing a symposium of views of
prominent people on the Japaneso
situation and the effort of tho gov
ernment to mobilize an American
fleet on the Pacific coast, yesterday
telegraphed to Governor Chamber
lain for his views on tho subject as
"Tho World would deeply appre
ciate from you an expression of
opinion concerning tho plan to mob
ilize an American battleship fleet In
the Pacific and the view the Japan
eso nation would bo justified In tak
ing of the move. As this Is our re
quest a telegraphic reply as desired
should be at our expense."
Governor Chamberlain replied as
"The plan to mobilize American
battleships in the Pacific meets with
my approval. I know not what view
the Japanese nation would take of
this movement, and I care less. Do
not think their opinion should be
consulted, but believe this govern
ment should act for its own protec
tion without consulting tho views
of other nations."
