With more trains ;cu,t , He nad Mi nl fri,'n,lK tnat hf each way every day and with every coach and every locomotive In opera tion It seems impossible to handle the passengers, not to mention the I freight. The O. It. Sc N. "system Is simply swamped and employes and officials, alike, jire simply tearing their hair . . .. .. In a vain effort to master the sltua tlon. A call for help has been sent Into the Southern Pacific and Ore gon Short Line headquarters and this has been partially responded to. Five additional locomotives are on their way here from the Southern Pa cific shops at Sparks, Nevada, and two are coming from the Oregon Short Line, these will be In service before the end of the week. The arrival of these engines will help materially, for the greatest dif ficulty has been experienced In the motive power line. With the assist ance of these additional locomotives it will be possible to relieve the con gestion of freight, which is to be found at every division point along the line and will also assist In the movement of the passenger trains. Some idea of the amount of the freight business can be gained by a visit to the local yards which are fill ed with loaded freight cars, waiting for a chance to be taken enst. Some, of them have been there for a week. Between midnight last night and noon today, five heavily loaded freight trains had passed this city on their way east. Some of them were "double-headers." Fourteen trains went west by this point yesterday, five of them being passenger trains and nine freights. Nine trains went east and the only reason they were not double that numb.-r was simply because the com pany did not have the motive power available to move them. Every passenger train that goes through Is literally "loaded to tho guards," seats are at a premium, many passengers are standing up and It Is a flglit for the conductor from the time he starts on his run until It ends. Unless the present rush subsides within the next few weeks, two more, passenger trains will be required each way every .lay. when the colonlsl rates go Into effect next month. How to handle this traffic Is the big puz zle that has not yet been worked out. Then to make the freight traffic question still more difficult the wheat shipping season will start In a few days and one of tho largest crops ever harvested In the northwest will be demanding transportation to the sea.

LOUIS FROM EXCESSIVE HEAT saw TELLE WANTS JEFFRIES. JOHNSON PRIZE FIGHT MAKES SPEED RECORD FOR AIRSHIP FLIGHT HUNTING LICENSES TAKEN OUT FOB OPENING IP THE GROUSE SEASON Next Sunday marks the opening of the grouse season In Umatilla, Union, Wallowa, Baker and Grant counties and the opening of tho season will probably be marked by a general ex odus of local sportsnK n from tho city. Reports from the mountains say the season has been very favorable for the hatching and rearing of tho young grouse and that many of the birds of good size are to be found In th. lr favorite haunts. No large kills Are expected, how ever, for in addition to tho fact that no true sportsman will kill more than he can care for, the new game law provides that five shall bo tho limit for one day and that ten shall be the limit for one week of continuous shooting. Though the season opens 15 days later this year than usual and only remains open until October 15, It Is believed that the law has been very generally observed and that fewer birds have been killed out of season than for a number of years. Several local hunters are already In the hills, ready for the opening, but most of them will not leave town un til Saturday evening or Sunday morning. Many will go out on the train to different points In the moun tains, while others will go by auto and buggy to places along the foot hills where the game birds can be found. More than 300 hunting licenses have already b-en taken out nnd It Is expected that a hundred more will be issued by the end of the week.
