MEET IN PORTLAND
OF 1905 COMES TO OREGON.
Landslide In Favor of the Lewis and
Clark Fair City Women Won the
Day for the Thriving Oregon City.
,. Pittsburg. May 21. Portland landed
the biennial convention ot tho Order
of Railway Conductors in 1905 almost
without an effort tonight. So com
plete was the landslide In Its favor
that the roll call of the delegates was
not finished when the vote was taken.
Less than two-thirds of tho names
were called when it was discovered
that It was no use to go any further.
Portland had the meeting cinched.
Boston had made a game ght for the
convention, but It reckoned without
the women. Almost unanimously the
wives of the conductors gave their
aid to the Portland boomers, and
when It came to a test their strength
was shown. The choice was tremen
dously popular, and tho added attrac
tions of a trip to the Pacific coast
already promises to make the attend
ance two years hence even greater
than It was here. The convention
when closed tonight was the largest
and most successful ever held by the
Among the last work of the conven
tion was the re-election of P. C. Smith,
of Detroit, as grand Inside sentinel,
and U. C. Ferguson, of Ogden, Utah,
as grand outer sentinel. The conven
tion of the ladles' auxiliary will prob
ably close with tomorrow's session.
The auxiliary re-elected Mrs. J.
Moore, of Toledo, O., grand president.
NEED THE PORTAGE ROAD.
E. H. Test, of Ontario, Speaks for
K. H. Test, ot Ontario, a democratic
warhorse, and a member of the lower
house of the legislature, said yester
day in Portland, that his part ot the
state wanted the portage road, and
would resent any action to beat it.
"The effort to get a referendum on
the corporation tax," said he, "will
not suceeod, but it may be different
with the portage road. I don't know
that man Cowglll, but I have heard of
him, and from what 1 hear he's no
philanthropist You may be sure
that he's working for somebody, and
that he's not wasting his own money.
"But if the railroads knock out that
1-ortago road, they may find the Ini
tiative Invoked for lower freight ratos.
The initiative would, pickle them.
Lots of people would sign petitions
to Initiate a law for lower freight
rates, whether they had anything to
ship or not. Lower Tates are popular.
"Eastern Oregon needs that por
tage road. Wo all need It. Nobody
dires go through our country circulat
ing pp-tltloDs for a referendum, cither

tax. The legitimate mining ventures
