Tliat Oregon 1ms n few surprises
up its sleeve nml cmi do tilings out
of (lie ordinnry when it ileenis tlie
occasion titispiciotis wns fully dem
onstrated Monday evening. A
thunderstorm such ns the oldest In
habitant confesses he never saw be
fore In Oregon swooped down upon
us. Accompanied by gusts of wind
and ruin, the lightning Unshed In
termitcntly and the thunder roared
during an hour's bombardment. It
had nil the car marks of a genuine
old Eastern thunderstorm with the
agreeable exception that the light
ning wns distant and not uucom
foitahlv close to the city. It sue
cessfullv removed all traces of
homesickness from late residents of
the Eastern states. A few minutes
nfter the fireworks subsided ami the
rain ceased the night was beautiful
and the atmosphere woudrously
clear nnd pure. The electric dis
play and the reverberations of thun
der were greatly enjoyed by those
who had the temerity to stay out
In it, but it is said that a few of the
"wehfoots" were almost scored to
death, and could not be induced to
crnwl out from under their beds,
where they had sought refuge, un
til long nfter the storm had passed.
Great Industrial Center
Dr. J. R. Wcthcrbee, chairman
of the Portland Civic Improvement
I.euguc, in discussing Architect
Bennett's comprehensive plan for
an ideal city in Sunday's Oregonlau
bus the following to say that is of
special Interest to the people of St.
"One of the most important feat
ures in the proposed development is
the extensive improvement of Port
laud's harbor. Swan Island Is se
lected as the first important loca
tion for public docks. It is planned
to construct slips both on the Island
and the main laud, to widen nnd
deepen the channel nnd to provide
for deep wnter facilities on (he flats
bordering the Columbia River north
of St. Johns. Here nil (he main
railroads entering the city from the
east and north will center on easy
grades nnd will have easy Inter
change with water shipping. This
section of the city will become the
great industrial center of Port
laud." Authorities 011 "the manufacture
of furniture assert that Grand
Rapids alone sends 5,000,000.00
worth of furniture to the Pacific
coast every year, nnd yet we have
in Oregon a number of factories
which nre manufacturing furniture
of the highest grade nt prices us
low or lower than those demanded
by the Grand Rapids manufactur
ers. Oregon has many hard woods
capable of being made into good
furniture and Portland has a hard
wood mill which is dressing Siber
ian oak, l'iji mahogany nnd other
woods which are lciug manufact
ured by Oregon furniture factories
Into furniture of the highest grade.
If the people of this state would in
sist on having "Made in Oregon"
furniture, this one industry alone
would keen hundreds of thousands
of dollars in the stnte which now
goes to Hastem furniture manufac
turers every year. This Is just one
example of what the "Made in Or
egon" movement will do for this
state, and there are mauy others.
Senator Bourne announces he has
the appointment of one principal
and three alternates to (he United
States Naval Academy at Annapolis.
Arrangements have been made
whereby Dr. V, T, Foster, presi
dent of Reed Iustltute, will direct
the qualifying examination. Ex
inations will be held Saturday,
October 14, nt 9 a. m. at the Reed
college building, Eleventh nnd Jef
ferson streets, Portland. Candi
dates must be be(weeu the ages of
16 and aoand will be given a strict
physical examination in addition to
the men(ul (est. Candidates will
be "examined in the following sub
jects: English, United States His
tory, geography, arithmetic, alge
bra and geometry. Dr. Frauk
I,oxley Griffin, professor of mathe
matics in Reed College, will assist
Dr. Foster in the qualifying tests.
If you want to see a most pleas
ing sight, take a walk down Phila
delphia street from Hayes to Edi
son. The improvement is almost
completed, but few people realize
what a splendid and beautiful street
it is getting to be. There is not a
thoroughfare in Portland that can
compare with its rare beauty aud
slghtliuess. It is worth anyone's
while to take a look at it.

The small boys of this city will
have a way to make their pocket
money this fnll by harvesting a new
kind of crop. The forest service
of the United States department of
nurictilture will collect several tons
of cones of the Douglas or red fir,
from which the seed will be taken.
These will be planted in vnrious
Nntionnl Forests In Oregon where
the timber has been burned. Al
bert K. Wiesendanger of the Unit
ed States forest service lias exam
ined the cone crop about the city
and has found n very large quan
tity on the trees. The cones will
rinen between September 1 and
1 September 20 and during this time
It is expected that every fir tree for
miles around will be stripped of its
new crop of cones. The small boy
may earn from $2 to $3 n day pick
ing cones.
The cones when picked will be
deliveted to the O-W R. & N. de
pot, where the Forestry department
will handle them aud send them to
Wycth, Oregon, where there is a
eovcrnmcnt dryer. Here heat is
applied nnd the cones will open and
drop their seeds, hurther purlieu
lurs regarding the collection of
cones may be obtained from I.outli

Tuesday evening at the regular

the county commissioners relative
to the free ferry had a most damp
cuing effect upon nil. It conveyed
tlie distressing intelligence Hint ne

not, therefore, see their wov clear
to do nnytliinir in the way of a free
ferry. The law reads: "That if
the city of St. Johns shall within

ferred to Multnomah county, Ore
gon, tlie terry slips, etc. 1 lie law
passed 011 February 8, ton, nud
the six mouths expired August 8,
1911. While the council realized
that the time had expired since the
passage of the act, yet they had
hoped that the county commission
ers might construe the wording ol
the act to mean six mouths
from the time the act became n
which was nnoiu 90 unys nuer us
passage. Mayor Coucli, who litis
done more to secure the free ferry
here than any other citizen, believed
the only hope or remedy possible
before the legislature met in regu
lar session wns that ptospects were
somewhat bright for holding a spe
cial session of the legislature tills
full, nccordiug to the dally papers,
and if this occur ml the matter
could be taken up, uud he believed
the time readily extended, nfter the
egislntors had been made familinr
with the circumstances.

that the construction department
had been notified to remove all sur

their share of the Fessendeu street

ever shown n disposition to meet the
demands of the council readily nud
C. E. Whcelock wns granted, on
motion of Alderman Valentine, nn
extension of 30 days time on the
improvement of Edison street, ow
ing to the fact that it was impos
sible to do the work satisfactorily
within the time originally specified
by the council; nil yes.
The Inconvenience caused by the
slow progress on (he improvement
of Jersey street was discussed to
some extent. Wet weather nml n

Just when the city authorities
imagined they had the ferry propo
sition cornered nnd were nbotit to
pounce upon it with both feet it
eluded their grasp with n gasp of
delight. A merry chase it lias been
leading the city fathers during the
past seven mouths, nnd many at
tempts were made to ensnare it, yet
it is farther off today than it has
been since tlie bonds were voted.
The first difficulty nrose when a
bonding company witli its leading
attorneys in Boston was nwnrded
the bonds through the agency of
hirst National Bank. These legal
lights in the "city of beans" became
suspicious of Oregon laws apparently
too deep for them to comprehend,
after fiddling nwny u lot of precious
time, nud refused to accept the bonds
on technicalities uot altogether clear
to many laymen minds. Almost
the entire time allowed by lnw to
effect the purchase of the ferry
slips nud transfer them to the coun
ty authorities wns wasted in at
tempting to effect n sale with (his
company, which nlwnys wauled
just n few days more.
I'ourdays before the six month s
time limit had expired, Geo. J.
Perkins, attorney for the ferry com
pany, met with the council nud
stnted that he had arranged for the
sale of the bonds through the Pe
ninsula bank provided the council
would pass 11 certain ordinance.
This was done, but too many tire-
clous minutes weiu lost by the
company in taking over the bonds,
and (he (hue expired. The word
ing ot (lie ferry law gave six montus
from the "passage" of the act, yet it
wns advised by the bonding attor
neys Unit the law would he con
strued to mean from the time the
act became n law, uud negotiations
continued in such a successful man
tier thai everything was in readi
ness to complete the deal, when the
commissioners notified the council
Hint they would stick to the exact
wording of tlie law, aud could do
nothing in the matter without the
intervention of the legislature.
Therefore, for the present nt least.
there is nothing doing in the free
ferry Hue. However, there is one
small glimmer of hoe. Prospects
are nssiimiug n somewhat rosy hue
in regnrd to the necessity of culling
n special session of the legislature
next mouth 011 important business.
If this is effected, there is good
grounds to expect that the legisla
tors will extend the time n few
months longer. If the special ses
sion is uot called, the free ferry
troject will lie dormant for another
year. Bents i,l

closes the fact that the county com

Johns Pharmac-y,
Editor Review: In last week's
paper you begin your leading edi
torial with my name nnd follow
with n quotation from tlie Appeal
to Reason to the effect that "the
1 way for the government to take
possession of the railroads is just
to take them aud that is nil there is
to it." Then you shout "confis
cation" and deride my 20 years of
I rending in socialism.
Now, Mr. Editor, I forbear to
use the qualifying adjective which
properly applies to the ancient trick
of quoting half of n passage to give
n meaning directly opposite to what
the whole conveys. The sentence
following the one you quote says
"the amount to be paid for the
railroads can be settled later" nud
suggests the supreme court ns the
nrbiter. Showing that confisca
tion is not thought of by this rad
ical correspondent.
The idea he proposes is not tlie
editorial opinion of tlie Appeal. In
the number just previous, iu reply
to the question ns to how the gov
ernment is to obtain possession of
the industrial plants, the editor re
plies that each case will be decided
011 its merits, and gives three meth
ods that may be considered: (1)
Purchase, (2) Duplication by build
ing new plants. (3) Where there
has been fraud nud violation oi law
iu acquiring title, confiscation.
Personally, I would confiscate some
of the millions of acres of land
claimed by the S. P. Co., nud pro
bably some Guggenheim holdings,
nud so would some thousands of
go'xl republicans aud democrats.
1 lie next quotation you make is:
"There can be 110 absolute title to
land." And then you crow:" How ;
can a man own a Home without a
Verily, a little reading is n dan
gerous thing. If you read n little
more nloug sociological lines you
would understand that statement,
which did not originate among the
socialists, docs uot refer to condi
tions under socialism, but is n state
ment of n fact ns it exists right
Do you own a home? Yesi Have
you nn absolute title to it? No I The

A. W. Vincent.
We did not intend to "deride"
the doctor's 20 years of study. In
stead, we respect it. Any man who
has studied 11 score of years on any
proposition is entitled to respect.
But the doctor was so positive that
Appeal to Reason would uot print
anything iu favor of confiscation
that the opportunity was too good
to be lost.
We are charged witli being an
"artful dodger." We didn't finish
tlie paragraph because it .seemed
unnecessary. Tlie writer Muted:
"When the (iconic want the rail
roads they will just take them and
WIU, BE TO IT." If that will
be all there will be to it, a qualifi
cation farther 011 is unavailing.
Doesn't the doctor do 11 little "artful
dodging" himself? Theiwrngraph
complete reads: "When the jwople
wants the railroads they will just
take them aud that'll be nil there is
to it; the question of compensation
CAN be tuken up later, AS IT IS
TION." Confiscate first; perhaps
attend to the least important matter
of comiKiiisatiou at the convenience
of the takers. Yes, least important
to confiscatory but most important
to the owners,
But let us finish tlie article with
tlie next uud lust paragraph: "The
matter of compensation MIGHT
be left to the supreme court after a
a socialist president has first up
appointed sociulist judges. No one
could object to it being left to such
uu august body us the supreme
court. Sure not." Of course it
would be nice to tnke things when
we want them nud defer payment
until we get ready to pay for them
if ever. Nice, but uot right.
According to the doctor's letter
even the editor of tlie Appeal to
Reason is at sea regarding how the
government shall take possession of
industrial plants under socialism, us
lie offers three methods to be con
sidered. If the socialists cannot de
cide themselves, how can they ex
pect those opposed to socialism to
decide for them? Docs the editor
of the Appeal really know, aud is
using three different kinds of bait
to catch voters? If he does not,
what a wonderful uncertainty the
socialists are trying to enmesh the
public into!

Worth Many Dollars
The rnlus of Sunday uud Mouduy
have been worth thousands of dol
lars to this section, and huve pioved
of no damage whatever. True hup
picking has been somewhat leturd
ed and inconvenience has been
caused to the piekers who wfie
brought to the yards too early, but
the outlook now is 11 butter crop by
reason of the rain. All vegetation,
which was suffering from the long
dry spell, has been lieled wonder
fully, the ground having received 11
thorough soaking, and bumper fnll
crops will be the result. The for
est fires have been effectively
quenched for this year, and ptolm
bly millions of feet of our flue tim
ber saved. The Oregon wetUr
man can be depended upon to do
the right tiling at the right time.
