CASE IS UP AGAIN
Isaue Involves. Intermediate
Points Between Portland
and San Francisco Having
Financial Affairs in Excellent
Condition No Motive for
Commissioner Franklin K. Ianp, of
the Interstate ( "ommi-rce commission,
will be hurp tomorrow to tako up in the
Vnlted States court a hearing on the
ppllcatlrth for exemption from the
fourth section Mho long and phort haul
Clause) between San Francisco ' and
Portland, n very Important question
from many standpoints.
The case Involves principally the
question whether or hot points Inter
mediate between Portland and San
Francisco should hate rates equal to
Ihnrc hn fieri nn water ."nini"""""
twe;n these ports, and not, as under ex
isting conditions, the Intermediate
points should pay the terminal rate
plus the local distributive rate.
It Is predicted that in view of the
decisions in the Spokane and Reno rate
.cases, the commission will take Jthe
stand' that intermediate points are iei
titled to terminal rates, and if so that
tones should be established along the
lines followed in the above cited case.
It is pointed out, too, that if this
ruling Is to govern traffic along- the
coast, the inevitable result will be with
drawal of the railroads from points en-
Joying the advantage of water competi
tion and advancing rates to interior
It is explained that rate to all Wll
lamette valley points, for Instance, are
largely based on certain arbitrages,
somewhat less than the water rate
added to the local rates out of Port
land, so that, for Instance, goods
whipped from San Francisco to Rose
bwg direct would take the same rate
as if shipped by way of Portland, which
would equal the water rate to Portland
rilus the local rate to Roseburg. This
Is for ratesbh the Oregon side of the
line. To points in California the rate
Is laid on different lines.
Case Is Important.
Where Oregon Is Interested generally
Is said to be In the fact that practical
ly all points south of Portland are in
slsttng that their rates should be lower
largely because of this water competi
tive rate at Portland, some going so
far as to Insist that the railroad should
rot be allowed to charge higher rate to
Intermediate points than the water rate
It is said to be very apparent that
If such contentions are sustained the
railroads must go out .of water com
petitive business and advance its rates
or deprive the ports of their advantages
of water competition. I
The case Is of tremendous interest
to Portland merchant and. If decided as
was the Spokane case will Impress as
-forcibly- the necelty of -utilisation- to
the fullest extent and possibility tlie. na
The "Willfftnette valley Is the most
important and remunerative field for
, the Portland distributor and It Is held
that If the Interior points are Iven
terminal rates then the advantages of
the waterways must be brought Into
, play to regulate the course of commerce
' and traffic.
The mysterious dinappeaiance on
August of Theodore Kruxe, propri
etor of the Belvedere hotel and the
l.ouvre cafe and prospective proprietor
of the new Carlton hotel, at Fourteenth
and Washington streets. Is baffling his
wife and friends and no Mile as lo his
whereabouts lia been found to date.
Nothing has been heard from him since
Mrs. Krusr received a telegram froirj
him In Scuttle saying he whh looking
for singers for tht l.ouvre and would
return In a few day. No reason has
yet hvn discovered for his departure
from this city and his friends think it
must have been occasioned by a tem
porary derangement of his mind. It is
believed that he has taken a boat for
some Canadian or Alaskan port or or
some point In California.
The, fact that he hail made arrangement-v
I Ui. i tie Culled States National
bank for a temporary loan of S25.00.O
precludes the Idea that financial trou
bles could have caused him to run
away. This money was available at
any time and had ho been pinched for
funds he could have hud more.
"The case is certainly baffling," said
Thomas H. Greene, Mr. Kruse's attor
ney, "as I do not know of anything
about his business that could have
caused his disappearance. Hte affairs
were all in good shape and he had con
siderable money still coming from the
sale of his hotel at Seaside. He had
not turned any of his securities into
cash and on the contrary recently pur
chased a small tract of land near this
city. We have followed every clue but
with no results."

BUSINESS MEN TO VISIT
BR0GAN AND JAMISON
(8perlal to The Journal.)
Ontario, Or., Sept. 2. A Ket-acqualnt-el
excursion to BrogaiT und Jamison,
the two new towns on lower Willow
creek, has been planned hy the Com
mercial clubs of Ontario, Nyssa and
Vale for Labor day. The excursion
trHln will leave Ontario at 9:30 a. m.
Monday and will return here about 9 p.
in. The citizens of Brogan and Jamison
have arranged to entertain the visitors
an. I a program' of sports and u basket
dinner in being prfcpured by them and
a delightful day for all Is looked for
ward to. The Ontario band will accom
pany the excursionists. This l.i the
first excursion over the road since the
Short Line built its branch line into
Hrogun and Jamison. There has been a
wonderful development in the lower
Willow creek section the past year and
many acres that were covered with
M-iiehrush a year ago were this spring
planted to young orchards.
Steps are being taken for the estab
lishing of un alfalfa meal mill for this
section. The plant will be a 60-ton mill
and to be built at Cairo, four miles
southeast of Ontario, at a cost or $8500.
Alfalfa meal sells in the market at from
$18 to $25 a ton. and the price paid for
alfalfa at the mill will be $A a ton. C. S.

Knding in.a flrawn battle, no Indict
inents and no 'comment, the grand jury
Inquiry Into the alleged north eiid jack
pot loaves the mess where It was when
the investigation started. After hear
ing witnesses who said the Jackpot was
collected and delivered and others who
professed dense ignorance and denied
"giving up," the grand Jury passed it
along to take 'place in, history with such
other questions as "How old is Ann?"
The result Is so unsatisfactory that
Inquiry has already turned lo the possi
bility -of further Investigation by the
now grand jury, which will come into
existence next Tuesday. It seems un
likely that the September grand Jury
will wade Into the slimy pool. The
retiring jury apparently heard all avail
able testimony, and since It gave up the
Job without mention, no other jury Is
likely to travel the same ground.
The county court, which started out
to Investigate the affair, quit when It
found that the testimony failed to con
nect County Detective Maher with the
payments alleged to have been made by
the Frenchmen. The grand Jury heard
Tony Arnaud tell that he received a
$300 sack from Armand Fercot and de
livered it to Frank L. Perkins, reporter
for an afternoon newspaper. It heard
five other Frenchmen corroborate him
by saying they paid money to Fercot.
Passes "the Buck."
Then It heard Fercot deny that he
knew anything about a jackpot and it
heard three other Frenchmen named by
Arnaud deny nil knowledge. Thev
scarcely knew even the meaning of
"graft." It heard Perkins and Maher
assert they were victims of a "frame
up" by north end unspeakables. It heard
newspaper men tell of the current ru
mors about the Jackpot and how the
matter came to light.
Here the trail ends. The grand jur
ors emerged from the winding ways
with the enigma unsolved and the pub
lic unenlightened as to the facts in the
case. Incidentally, it Ignored the ef
fort of Seneca Fonts to have Manager
John F. Carroll of the Evening Tele

A. S. Briggs. superintendent of the

work covers all grades of. school' work.
The notice of the prohibition of the

effect Friday, is printed at tho close,
On one of the last pages is a note to
the effect that, while .manners and mor

study, the - teacher has an excellent
chance to Instill these,, requisites Of
good breeding. It is an .exceptional op
portuntty to teach the pupils so .that

are urged- to take advantage -of it withe

The arrangement of the courses was
made with the Idea of distributing the
work as evenly among the eight -grades
without making the assignments too
