DEFENSEMPACIFIC
CiRfireice Is Called by Secre
tary il War lepartaeit.
ADJUTANT GENERALS WILL Gl
Manning ' of Co it Fortifications by
State Ressrves to Be Subjtct
of Council at Capital.
Portland, Jan. 2. Adjutant generals
of the three Pacific state Oregon,
Washington and California havo been
Invited by the War department to go to
Washington. D. C, for a conference at
tbo earliest poseible date on the sub
ject of coast defense. Adjutant Gene
ral W. E. Flnaer, of Oregon, and Gen
eral J. 11 Lauck, of Callfotnla, are
leaving for the caplUl tomorrow, while
General Otis Hamilton, of Washing
ton, will start East Saturday.
The request from the Wax depart
ment for this conference Is regarded as
peculiarly significant, Indicating the
government's determination to prepare
for anjr emergencies that may arle
from the West. The principal topic of
consideration at the conference will be
that of training volunteer coast artil
lery reserves to man Oregon, Washing
ton and California fortifications. The
subject of perfecting the Infantry regi
ments of the three state in coast de
fense operations will likewise bo taken
up. It Is assured that the meeting will
result In assignment of National Guard
troops to coast artillery work. The
tnreo adjutant generals will very likely
return with the task ahead of tecrnit
Jng new coast companies tor this ser
vice. For several months General Oliver
has been In soramunication with Gene
rals Finzer, Lauck and Hamilton on
the subject of coast defense. Only a
few days ago he submitted memoranda
from the chief of artillery recommend
ing stMignseatot the Oregon troops to
coast defease maneuvers in May, as
well as the permanent setting aside of
certain Infantry companies for heavy
artillery training.
This plan was not regarded by the
three eoast adjutant generals as feasi
ble. There appeared to be a disinclin
ation among infantry commanders to
apportion their companies for artillery
work. Conceited objection was also
made to the month of May for maneuv
ers, as It la difficult for the average
guards-man to leave his business or
work at tht busy time of the spring
rush.
It Is known, however, that the War
department will find It necessary to
offer more than a plan of coast defense.
The carrying oct of such a plan will be
attended by more or leas expense. That
the state ehould foot the bills does not
seem just. It is believed that thd gov
ernment will be asked flatly what aid
can be given in the organization of re
seives or the assignment of Infantry al
ready organized.
VICTIMS OF JAP MOB.
Three Firemen Badly Injured at Van
couver, B. C.
Vancouver, B. 0., Jan. 2. Allan
Anderson, fireman, is dying and two
other yonns men, also members of the
city fire department, are badly wound
ed and in the hospital as the result of a
fight they had early this morning In
the Japanese quarter with an over
whelming number of the subjects of tho
mikado. The fight was the worst in
the city since the September riots, and
Indicates that the Japanese are at all
times ready for trouble and eager to
fight with their long knives that have
blades keen as razors.
Anderson, accompanied by J. Frost
and T. McDonald, was passing a Jap
anese store, when Frost stumbled and
fell hard against the plate-glaea window
front. The glass smashed and tbo frag
ments were still rolling on the s'dewalk
when a scoro of Japanese appeared from
the Inside and rushed at the trio of
whites. The firemen were in uniform,
with brass buttons and official capo, but
the Japanese knifed thom furiously.
Steal Chest ot Nickels.
Rochester, N. Y., Jan. 2. Two men
stole a chest containing f 2,859 from a
street car standing In front of the Main
street East carbarns at 0:25 o'clock this
morning and got safely away with It In
an automobile. The stolen money rep
resented tbo earnings of the Rochester
Hallway company yesterday on what Is
known as the Eastern division. It was
being transferred according to custom
from the Federal street carbarns to tba
State street office to be counted when
the robbery occurred. Officers are In
pursuit.

FEELING IS BITTER.
Vancouver Is Aroused by Latsst At

Vancouver, B. a, Jan. 3. While at
no stage did the light between uie
three city firemen and the Japanese
wh anvlMns like the dimensions ot
the Beptember riots, tho Incident has
revived tho bitterest feeling. After all

The truth Is simply being forced

Vancouver lias been a little ashamed ot

MAY SUE HARRIMAN.
Bonaparta Soon to Issue Statement
on Railroad Merger.
Washington, Jan. 3. "Within a
week or ten days tho department of
justice will Issue a statement regarding
the ownership by thn Union Pacific of
stock ot the Southern Pacific," said At
torney General Bonaparte. "It bad
been contemplated to Isauo the state
ment earlier, but tbe absence In Eur
ope of special counsel employed by tho
government lias caused the delay."
While the attorney general will not
admit at this time that the statement
will be tbe announcement ot proceed
ings against the Union Pacific for vio
lation of the law prohibiting restraint
of trade, there is excellent authority
for the statement that It will be. Tbe
department of justice, according to one
of its high officials, has reached the
conclusion arrivod at by the Interstate
Commerce commission that tho control
which tbe Union Pacific has obtained
over the Southern Pacific by tbe pur
chase of stock is in violation of tho law
and amounts in substance to the merg
ing of two competing railways.
Not only will tbe government pro
ceed for a dissolution of the merger and
a restoration of the competition which
prevailed before the Union Paclflo
bought Southern Pacific stock, but the
courts will be asked, it is stated by an
official of tbe department, to break np
the combine under which the two rail
roads are alleged to operate their steam
ships. NIQHT RIDERS FIRE A TOWN.

apples were shipped out ot this stato

reports compiled by the railroads. The

timber from government land and fined
$300 for about 17 trees. The sawmill
men have, becu making this a practice
for years before the reserve was creat
ed, and thought It no barm to continue
the practice. Last fall was the first
time a forest guard has been stationed
here to give permits for cutting Umber

has alwsys been plenty ot timber out

for building purpose until lately,
when It was all secured by outside peo
