Th marina engineers' strike U on Id
earnest Engineers are calling at head
quarten today and depositing- their li
censes. Matters are shaping themselves
in precisely the same manner as was ex
cluively forecasted in Saturday's Journal.
Nearly all the boats are ou. on their
regular runs, but it Is stated at head
quarters that the union men will walk
out as soon as th vessels reach their
home port.' Both sides are determined
and all Indications are that the fight,
which has been long . brewing, will be
(ought to a finish.
POTTER TIED UP.
The T. J. Potter, operated by the 0- R.
A N. tied up this morning and her entire
crews came ashore. When the Taboma.

The Dalles last night the engineers and
every employe on the boat tendered their
resignations. A new non-union crew wa
employed, however, and she" went out
this morning oa schedule time. , It is be
lieved that several of the smaller lines
on which non-union men are at work,
will continue in commission, and many of
the owenrs are confident that some of
the union engineers , Will refuse to leave
their positions. The following Is a copy
of the agreement which the owners were
asked to stgn

The engineers made the following state
ment this morning: I
"When we agreed to return to work at
the termination of the last strike of a
few weeks ago it was with the under
standing that we were all to go back to
our old positions.' Instead of complying
with the terms of the agreement 10 of us
were succeeded by non-union men. Not
only that, but the owners have been guil
ty of indulging in tne most pettywork
imaginable, rney went among tne engi
neers and exerted every possible Influence
to induce them to withdraw from the
union and have nothing more to do with
it Every effort has been made by them
to disband the organisation. They made
a systematlo fight and conjured up every
little , grievance imaginable Patience
ceased to be a virtue. We u.d not care
to work under such a constant turmoil.
The men will all be out, but they do not
Intend- to interfere with any non-union
men who may be engaged. We have the
support of the national organisation and
can afford to remain idle for an Indefinite
period If. necessary. We expect it to be
a long drawn out fight-,' but the engineers
can stand It They will neither starve
nor suffer for the lack of employment"
It is understood that '
NATIONAL PRESIDENT UHLER
is in Seattle and-will personally direct the
fight. . The Increase in wages asked
amount to about 10 per cent, The main
feature of the agreement to which the
owners object is the clause stating that
the chief engineer shall have the selec
tion and appointment of the entire crew.
"Wa are entitled to this privilege," said
one of the engineeaa. "For Btar mishap
In the engine room we are helbr responsi
ble by the United States government.

hold their positions by a pull, and they
are very independent. They disobey or-
flers, and if we say anything to them
they retort that they get their positions
from the owners and that we have noth
ing to do with them."
OWNERS ARE RETICENT. J
The owners' do not have much to say
an the subject, but are confident that
many of the boats' will continue to ran.
They say -that a number of the union
ngineert will stay with their positions,
and that new men will be secured to take
all vacant places as fast as they occur.

It Was the grandest day of the Carnival
and the military parade-was the moat In
spiring ever seen here. The Vancouver?
boys turned out in full fore and made
! a magnificent appearance. There la prob
ably no better looking company on the
coast than Uncle Sam'a permanent de

to see the defenders of our country at
There were batteries of broad mouthed
cannon and batterles of bright Gattling
guns. There were companies' of ' soldiers
lu the drear dress of war, while above
them all "Old Glory" floated in its splen
dor. The ambulence corps of Vancouver
and Oregon were In line with their
stretchers for the wounded men.
PROMPTLY AT 10:30
o'clock the head of the procession moved
down Stark street. Major Summers lead
the line, closely followed by his aids and
escort. Then came the 17th Regiment
Band, discoursing sweet music. This
band is the pride of the barracks and one
of the best on the coast. Closely follow
ing this was the 17th Regiment of regu
lars of about 100 men. The boys attracted
attention, as they showed the result of
training for years, and ellclUd applause
The ambulence corps followed, carrx
Ing the stretchers and making a pleasing
contrast of humanity to the war-like pic
ture ahead. The
" 28TH U. 8. LIGHT ARTILLERY
was next, stretching out in a long line of
horses, guns and carriages, that clattered
fnl rattled over the pavements.
Then there waa a short break In. the
line and the people looked In admiration
an the Oregon National Guard marched
down the street, lead by the Third Regi

followed by the entire force of the ThUjd
Regiment. Next came the ambulence
corps followed by Battery A and the bat

was kept free from teams and people who
would interfere with the parade or break
the column. The
PARADE WAS REVIEWED
et Hotel Portland by- Mayor George H.
Williams, Governor T. T. Geer and his
!taff. and Governor-elect George H.
Chamberlain, with his staff.
This afternoon the Carnival city was
given up to the soldiers who were each
provided with passes and given the lib
erty of the grounda. A great throng waa
at the entrance when the gates were
opened. There was the soldiery Inter
mixed with civilians in a most pleasing
array. The boys were greatly pleased at
the show nnd feel that they were well
paid for the bard Inarch of the forenoon.

succeed. The Park block has been care
fully screened and roped off to prevent
a repetition of Saturday nipht's catastro

cessful. The ropes will be lined .with
officers, who will keep the crowd back
away from the enclosure, or else the
rider will not attempt the loop.
The new- rider was glvena try yester
day by Mr.' Jabour, and ha satisfactorily
rode the incline. The managemenOfeel
motthat he will succeed in the attempt.
"He has unlimited nerve, and he rode
down the Incline' with only . ona. hand- on
the bars," said Mr. Jabour, "besides this,
he seems to' have perfect control of the
wheel. One other man, McDonald who
signed the contract for Friday night,
seems a little more nervous than Felt
ham, but says he will be on deck when
the crowd Is ready for the' big thing to
come off. I can safely say now that no
spectators will be Injured In case either
man does not succeed," added 'Mr. Ja

proposed railroad legislation ar claim
ing that they will be victorious. Many) "
are claiming that the commission biU will
be defeated, and that the Governor will
fail In the campaign that has been waged -with
such Intense vigor here In Wash-
If the eleotion of a temporary chalrmart
be a criterion, and it usually Is, then th
railroad people have control of th Wash
ington state Republican convention, for
Falknor of Thurston County was elected -temporary
chairman without a dissenting
vote. He waa distinctly the railroad
choice for the place. Falknor had been
candidate for. the nomination for Con
great, but withdrew.
The convention assembled at 11:10 thig "
morning, with the Urge attendance ot
"delegates and politicians that had been '
icted. After th temporary chairman
had been selected, committees on cre
dentials, order of business and platform)
were named, and the convention ad-
Joumed to meet thin afternoon.
There appears to' be tittle doubt that
the three Congressmen now serving from
this state will be renominated Jones of
Yakima, Cushman of Pierce and" Humph- &
reys of King. "
It Is certain that If th Governor. ?,

seems more than naif likely, " Harold

Ankeny, the Walla Walla banker, is in -the
strongest position for the Senate.

time that this was th ease, and that
although there has been generous actloa
