Portland, March 5. The Telegram
last evening gave a full account of the
traffic war on the part of the U. P. R.
R. Co. It says Gen.-Manacer S. H H.

land within ten days. The. reason for

arrival is awaited with great interest
among rajlroad men of the Northwest.
WILL THERE BE A TRAFFIC WAR?
There is a war-cloud hovering above
the horizon of river steamboat traffic.
The withdrawal of- the Harvest Queen,
which' ran to Astoria when theTelephone
was laid up for repairs, and putting on
the speedy -T. J. Potter to compete' with
the latter, yesterday, might be called
the first 'gun. The steamer Telephone
has' started again on the run to .vstoria,
but not hntder any arrangement or un
derstanding with the Union Pacific,
each:' atr formerly -"existed. And Jacob
Kamm says that the Lurline will be put
on the route in' two'Treelcs: There are
some repairs to be completed before she
commences'. . When she is put on six
boats will be funning ' to 'Astoria,' only
two of which will be- controlled by the
Union' Pacific. ' The question ' now is,
whether or not' freight and passenger
rates will remain" at" the present figures.
Some steamboat men think; they will,
others are doubtful, and some say that
the tarffic does not warrant so many
boatB, and that one or possibly two," "of
them will have to pall off. But they
all express a determination to remain
on the river, so it appears that war is
- . - . THE UNION'S PLAN.
The original plan of the Union Pacific
was to. run four steamers from Portland
to Astoria." These were theR. R.Thomp
son and Harvest Queen at night, and the
T. J.'Potter and the Telephone in the
day, leaving Portland in the morning.
The scheme will not be carried out, and
the trouble to the monopolists was all
ceu8ed, it is said, by Mr. Jacob 'Kamm,
owner of the Ocean Wave (new), the
Lurline' and the Undine. The monopo
ly had his Lurline and Undine leased the
former on tbe cacade route in opposition
to the Dalles City, and the Undine to
Vancouver. They paid him $1,200 per
month for the two.' The lease expired in
December, and 'Mr. Kamin refused to
renew it. - The probable reason is that
the Lurline was so 'battered up that it
has -cost him $3,000 for repairs. The
U; 1?. R. " system" desired to keep these
two boats off the lower Columbia, and it
feared Mr. Kamm would put one of them
on tbe route, 'there is
ANOTHER -1NTEBKSTISG FACT. - . -
The AstOrlan was laid up until Janua
ry 17th in the Union Pacific boneyard,
under a (6,000 subsidy. The owner of
this steamer, Hon.1 H. B. Parker.'is now
opposing" tbe UnionPacific in every shape
and mauner,-"connecting in Portland
with"' the- Dalles,-Portland 'and Astoria
Navigation company,: notwithstanding
an offer to renew the (500 per month to
keep the AstoYiah off. 'Thus, for a while;
by paying out $1,700 per month, the mew
nopolists kept three steamers off the'Ag
tbrlB!r6bte1th.Uhdihe1 Lnriine and As
fonan.f 'Irf' the nieantiine Mr.KA'mth
built the Ocean Wave, a Bide-wheeler in
very Tespect equal . to theT. J. Potter,
and by the refusals of Kamm and Parket
this entire fine fleet of flyers may be
turned to good account in breaking the
bac"kborne of the Columbia river monop
oly, wBa n'6 ldnger have thifTelephone
as anally. : -'s. .'"
WHAT ENDED THE COMBINATION.
It did"'ndf worK" for the 'reason, that
Mr. Kamm would not renew his con
tract. As a natural consequence, they
anppo'sed he would put the Undine on th
lower ran. So it wan no riRe fA nnntinnn
paying f50U per inbntH to the Astciriah,
ana it was etoppeu. January let, 8 he
was put on the 'Astoria route by. Mi1;
Parker. The last spoke' in ffie cphiDina1
twn gave way on March 1st', wtieri the
contract! between the owners of the tele
phone and the Union Pacific was tip
and was not renewed. ' As a' result" of-
this and the failure to control the traffic;'
the railway company how appears some
what in opposition to 'the ".Telephone
company. The Harvest Queen bad been
running to Astoria while the .Telephone'
.was laid up, but immediately upon 'her
recfiintnencing , yesterday morning . the
union Pacific took off the Harvest Queen
and put on the T. J. Potter, the' fastest
boat they poBsea in competition with the
Telephone. Whether or hot rates will
be niai n tai n'ed no w, and ' especially w hen
Mr. Kamni puts the Lurlineon the route
is anxiously awaited by steamboat men .
