Feeling Runs
Slurred the
Fair to Which It Stands Pledged.
The Board of Trade, , the Chamber of Commerce and the
Directors of the Fair Will Await His Reply Already
His Words Act as Boomerang on His Road.
The member, of the Manufacturer.' Association have determined to a.k Mr. Mellen, president of the Northern Pa
cific Railroad, whether he gave utterance, to the word, attributed to him by The Journal. Whatever may be the presi
dent', reply, and whatever may be the .tand taken by .ub.ldlzed Journall.m, the fa:t remain. THAT MR. MELLEN
UNMITIGATED FALSEHOOD. However, Mr. Mellen will repeat hi. word., and, a. The Journal has said before In Its
editorial column., Mr. Mellen ha. done much good for Portland by putting her on her mettle. The Lewis and Clark
Fair U an assured success BECAUSE MR. MELLEN SAID IT WOULDN'T BE.
The Manufacturers' Association met
last night and look up the matter of
J'reHldent Motion's statements to a Jour
nal representative relative to the Lewis
uiid Clark Fair. It was decided to write
to Mr. Mellen for an explanation, inclos
ing a clipping from The Journal wherein
his interview is published. Indignation
whs pictured on the faces of all present,
Quite a good deal of 111 feeling hus been
engendered by bla statements, and it Is
the unanimous verdict of the people of
Portland that the Insult tendered them
by President Mellen is entirely uncalled
for and unjustified, and is bound to art
as a boomerang on the Northern Pacific.
The -Board of Trade, Chamber ot Com
merce and the Lewis and ('lark Board
of Directors have decided to await the
resutf-of S. h investigation commenced by
the Manufacturers' Association.
It la an established fact that trade Is J
already being diverted from the North
ern Pacific. A local wholesale house
oounterrdanded a routing of two ears,
or merchandise which wis to go1 over
that road and transferred tame to an
other road. The people of Portland are
asserting themselves and will prove what
they can do when they are determined.
In an Interview this morning, W. H.
Morrow, president of the Manufacturers'
Street Committee of the
to Terms With
Portland Railway
Last night the 'street committee of the
common council practically disposed of
the blanket franchise, for which both the
Portland Railway Company and the city
have long been agreed upon.
The new ordinance destroys 26 old
franchises. City Auditor Devlin was In
structed to check up the old ordinances
with the new one and when this Is done
the blanket franchise will be passed by
the council.
Those present at the meeting last night
were: Councilman Bentley, Kumelin, Mer
rill and Zimmerman, of the street com
mittee; Councllmen Card well. Albee and
Foeller, and President O. F. Paxton, Gen
eral Manager F. J. Fuller and J. C. Ains
worth, directors of the railway company.

"I think that It waa very Injudicious on
the part of Mr, Mellen to have made the
statements that were published in The
Journal. ' He mutt not have realized the
vast Interests hi. road has In Portland.
If he affirms the statement, which I have
no doubt he will. I think the merehantH
will know what steps to take by trading
with other roads."
Governor-elect George E. Chamberlain
" The remarks of Mr. Mellen were en
tirely uncalled for and not warranted
by the history of any former exposi
tion that has ever been given in the
West. When the' Midwinter Fair at San
Francisco was being talked--of. thtr;
were persons who said that It would not
be a, financial success because It was
too far from the center or population,
but notwithstanding these prophesies of
ill, omen, it is said to have netted over
WSS.txXv. ' The same argument la now
being used against the Lewis and Clark
Fair, and just about the same founda

New Complications
Coal Strike
Coramis sion Has Adjourned Unti
Dec. 3' to Permit of Agree
ment on the Side.
SCRANTON, Pa., Nov. 22 Although It j
was rumored last night and very gener- !
ally admitted that a settlement had been 1
practically agreed upon between the coal j
operators and their employes, there was
a sensation sprung when the arbitration 1
commission met this morning. ,
It was an effort of the Independent oper- '
ators to force the issue, and the demand -made
by them that the commission should
give an expression of the sentiments of )
the American people regarding the strike. ;
lis riots and bloodshed and the methods !
of settlt-ment. It was declared tliut ne- J
Initiations between the strikers and their
employers relative to settlement outside
tlie council were being carried on In se-
ere I and the independent operators-: had
not .been consulted.
When the commission met this morning
Darrow announced Uiat the questions at
issue had been takeiT up last night by
all parties concerned and that there was
strong hope of satisfactory settlement out
side the commission He. therefore, asked
for an adjournment until such time as a
decision could be i cached. I'lenty of time
to take up the various questions and dis
cuss them relative to a compromise was
desired, he said.
Judge Gray, president of the commis
sion, announced lliat he would close the
sessions until December 3, that date be
ing acceptable to both the workmen and
the operators.
It was at this point that the Independent
coal operators began their objections. At- i
tornev Burns, representing them, got to I
his feet and addressed the commission.
"The Independent Operators have been
duly admitted to this court and are a
party to the claims," he said. "In the
negotiations for settlement that wereun
dertaken last night they were not con
sulted. We want the thing threshed out
to an Issue before this commission and
will consent to no otner course. We be
lieve that an agreement reached before
the commission would prove vastly more
lasting than one that had as Its parties
only the mine workers aa Individuals and
the combined coal mine owners."
Judge Gray Interposed at this point.
As president of the board he declared
that the action of the independent opera
tors was anticipating the work of the
commission and trying to force the issue.

present da:
that the plans now undertaken by

Burns then read a statement placing the
independent operators on record as oppos
ing an agreement to which they were not
admitted on e jual trms with others.
The statement sets forth that tho mut
ter of wages Is -lot a vllal point In the

In reply Darrow said It was not the In
tention to debar the Independent opera
tors from participation In the negotiations.
Judge Gray appointed Clark. Watkins
and l'arker a committee to remain and
assist in conciliation.
The Independent operator, declare they
will also dispute the wage statements

In position, they say, to prove that work-
men in their mines receive more than $700

porary peace.
Counsel Wilson; for ' the Delaware &

the meeting held last night was not a
j formal one and said 4t was only for the
I purpose of making an attempt at outside

championship today. Before banks ,oC,v
cuiors a no. inapirua Dy aeep-cneatea
cheers and the piping, shrill voices of
the gentler sejt, the Sons of Old Ell
were on their mettle, and the lads from
Harvard were not less earnest In their
effort to wrest the laurel from the
thousands of judges who watched
eagerly for a chance to bestow the token.
For days the people have been gath
ering here to witness this, the greatest
gridiron battle of the year. Three days
ago hotels were crowded and 24 hours
before the game every seat in the Vast
ampltheater had been bargained for, and .
there were thousands bidding for
"standing room only" Inside the fences.
For hours before the contest began foot
ami carriage passengers lined before the
gates and crowded and cheered, jeered
and hooted while they waited for the
doors to open. Once Inside the grounds,
there was greater noise than ever.
Harvard, on one side of the campus,
and Tale on the other, lined up and be-. .
gan the battle long before the teams had
finished their light luncheons and got
ten into their football togs. Students by
thousands cheered and cheered again
when the name of soma favorite waa
mentioned, or when an exchange of
repartee across the field brought out a
point. Brass bands discoursed muslo
that was not heard Jn the din and flax
waved until the ban&s of seats were on
great mass of undulating color.
' As th-e teams trotted upoa WJ.tfald-.thA,.,
noise became deafening. As one Indi
vidual the "eh'tfre" audience rose and
shouted in unison. Yale voices mingled
with that of Harvard In a grand chorus
that shook 'the heavens and made the
bedlam that had reigned before" seem
silence in comparison.
Beyond a few minutes devoted to pass
ing and the practicing .of a few punts
and place kicks, there was little -timer -taken
up In preliminary work. Both
teams were eager to get Into the ac
tual battle, and soon the coin was
Hipped and the men began to tear oft
sweaters and rush to their places Oh the .
field. Nothing could be heard above tha
din of the partizans, although It was ob
served that the referee directed remarks)
toward the captains and the umpire gave
warnings regarding certain changes In
the rules, so there could be do misunder
standing. Thn the whistle sounded and the gam
began amid a silence so intense that it
was oppressive.
