Blglln saya he will be glad If the whole

It waa expected that the Blglln hear
log before the commlsalon would close
' yesterday with the arguments of Judge
Pipes and John T. Logan. Biglln'e at

' " anew, however, and December IS waa set
aa the time for further hearing-.
"f Mayor Lane had contended that all
police officers had been notified aa to
' the necessity for extreme care In, using
fl rearms during the gralnhandlera
'strike. Blglln.ln firing a shot under the
dock at a light, would therefore have
been, acting directly contrary to ordera.
' Attorney Lagan, however, obtained from
' ; Sergeant Baty yesterday afternoon the
statement that be did not caution the
men under htm en the docks until after
the BigUn eplaodo.
; a.'" sTistory of Eskasonl Case.
. - The Eskasonl case attracted particu
lar attention because of the fact that
' among the sailora shipped on her against
their will were several Portland boys
. who bad been enticed on board by pronv
; Ises of a One ocean trip, wtth nothing
but pleasure in store for them. Their
-i first dsy on board of the windjammer
(opened their eyea and they realised that
they would have to go aloft with the
experienced men and perform an the
work that falls upon a toller of the sea.
. They "begged "to" 'be " taken ashore. bat -
, were refused until finally exposure
.". through the daily press sent friends to
their assistance, with the result that
, Captain Burney allowed them to ' go
aahore. This occurred after two or
three of the men -had jumped overboard
and swdm s'shiire. The Eakaaonl waa
anchored, in the stream for nearly a
week,- her crew refusing to give the
. hawser to the towboat that went along
side to take her to sea. The few expert,
enced aallora oa board objected to tak-
- Ing her to sea on the alleged ground
'-that the vessel waa top-heavy, not
; enough ballast having been plaoed in the
hold to steady the lumber-laden craft
The - Eskaaoni finally got away ajid
reached Manila in aafety. -
The contention will be made that Big
Un took no decisive action In tha Eska
aoni matter, though he knew the facta
" as to erew." -"""

bosses which the latter did not see fit
to grant The unloniata declared a
atrtke, but their places were quickly
filled by nonunionlsts and deserters
from their -own ranks. Much bitter
ness waa engendered and now tha boases
say they wll never treat with tha union
until Its present officers hava been
relegated to the background.
' The ne union la claimed to be an or
ganlsatlon launched by some of the
older painters of tha city who cannot
afford to go on a hopeless strike. The
. bosses are said to be friendly to tha
new organisation, and though a wage
rale haa not yet been agreed upon, tha
men are working at what they admit
la a -satisfactory wage. . '
The new union meets Wednesday

CHARGES OF WARREN .
(Continued from Page One) '
Warren la-also quoted aa saying that be
never read to me any private letters of
mine addressed to Commissioner Rich
ards.. I never said he did. What I did
say, however, aa la proved by the fore
going cuotationa from my affidavit, waa
tbat tha senator read ma extracts from
letters which I addressed to tha com.
mlsslonerof the generaf larrdofftce. Those
letters wera official 'and not private
communications and they have never
been designated as "private letters' by
anybody,' to my knowledge, except by
Senator Warren himself. t ,
' "Senator Warren speaks of having
reat-in tha Denver newspaper of
Meyendorffa attempt to .commit sui
cide." ' I am aurprlsed that tha senator
should attempt to circulate aurh a
ridiculous story. It la a fact easily
susceptible of definite, and substantial
proof that I made no. attempt to com
mit aulrlde at Denver . or ' any other
place, for that matter. "If the senator
