When President and Neighbors Bathe in Oyster Bay They Tempt Monsters. OYSTER BAY, Aug. s.—While fish ing for bass within a short distance of President Roosevelt's private landing in Oyster bay yesterday, Dr. James S. Hall of this tillage saw protruding from the water the fin of a shark. The doctor and Howard Leich of Oyster MCKEAN'S n For Having What You May Happen to Need Bay immediately procured a harpoon and rowed very quietly toward the Ash. As the shark started rapidly away the doctor plunged the harpoon with full force into the water and caught the monster just behind the ear. In its frantic effort to get away it towed the rowboat for some distance, leaving be hind a trail of blood. Lashing the sea, it was dragged by the doctor and Mr. Leich to the beach, where it was found to be a shark of dangerous variety and to measure about eight feet in length. While returning to the launch the doctor saw and harpooned another shark which was not full grown. The doctor's exciting experience, and the fact that the sharks were killed in close proximity to several bathing beaches, including the one upon which Presi dent Roosevelt and his family are wont to disport themselves, have caused Dr. Hall to make preparations for a shark hunting expedition, upon which he will be accompanied by several friends, all armed with harpoons and all intent upon ridding the bay of these mon sters. RIVAL FOR STANDARD OIL. Pittsburg Bankers Will Combine Kan sas and Indian Territory Interests. PITTSBURG, Aug. s.—Negotiations practically have been completed by which the Mellons, the Pittsburg bankers, will combine all of the im portant oil interests of Kansas and the Indian Territory. Thus the Mellons will control the most powerful com pany independent of Standard Oil in the southwest. The capital of the new company will be $25,000,000, of which $7,500,000 will be in 6 per cent bonds, which the Mel lons are arranging to have financed by the Union Trust company at par. The Mellons have agreed on behalf of their Gulf Refining company at Port Arthur, to refine the product sent through their pipe lines at a sum not to exceed 42 cents a barrel, and 10 per cent of the net revenue from the crude oil shall be funded for the redemption of bonds. They also agree to take care of the product of the field in their new line. THE EVENING STATESMAN SATURDAY, AUGUST 5, 1906. DEMAND TERMINAL RATES COMMERCIAL CLUB WILL BRING MATTER TO ATTENTION OF RAILWAY COMMISSION. Farmers, Shippers and Merchants In vited to Attend Conference to Be Held Next Wednesday. Members of the transportation and freight committee of the Walla Walla Commercial club held a meeting last night and made arrangements to re ceive the members of the railway com mission when they come to Walla Walla next Wednesday. It was de cided to invite all the shippers, farm ers and other persons who are inter ested in the subject of freight rates to be present at the meeting, give their views, and state their complaints and wants in order that the commission can be fully advised as to the condi tions existing in Walla Walla county. The principal matter to be taken up will be that of the alleged discrimina tion against Walla Walla relative to distributing point rates on freight from the east. "Walla Walla is the metropolis and the natural distributing point for Southeastern Washington," said one of the members of the committee this morning, "and we should have equally as good freight rates as those given by the railroads to Spckane. Under the present conditions the railroad com panies charge Walla Walla merchants the through rate from eastern points to the coast and then they are forced to pay the local rate from Portland, Seattle and Tacoma back to Walla Walla. On the other hand Spokane is given terminal rates which enables its business men to sell goods to the merchants in the Inland Empire at a much lower rate than is made pos sible for Walla Walla merchants. This is a discrimination and this fact will be pointed out to the members of the commission as strongly as possible. The committee will have on hand any amount of facts and figures to submit to the commission members and will make an effort to give them all the necessary information possible to en able them to reach a definite under standing of the conditions prevailing in this section of the country. A num ber of other matters may also be taken up, but that will not be decided upon until early next week. "It is desired by the committee that all the farmers, shippers and merch ants be present at the conference and make known their wants and needs to the members of the commission." BEATS WRONG WOMAN.
