The sketches ate as follows: "This is
the second time we take the liberty of
placing the poi i rait of Brother Cooper
before our meuioers. He has held the
position of secretary of the Oregon City
assembly for two years, and in that time
has seen it pass two mile stones the 100
mark and the 200 mark. Much of the
success of that assembly is due to the
careful manner in which Brother Cooper
has kept the books and accounts- of the
books and accounts, lie is also county
clerk of Clackamas county, in which po
sition he has served the county to the
satisfaction of every citizen." "Brother
Everhart, of Oregon City assemb'y oc
cupied the chair of master artisan, when
the assembly passed the $200 mark. H"
is a mau of considerable executive for. e.
and looks forward to the day when tlx
United Artisans will be noted for . its

About 400 Clackamas county Wood
men attended the celebration, barbecue
and subsequent initiation of over 1300
candidates for membership at Mount
Tabor Saturday day and evetiing. It
was the most novel and grandest frater
nal gathering ever held in Oregon. It is
estimated that 5,000 Woodmen and
Women of Woodcraft were present from
the various sections of Oregon and
Washington. At the initiation ceremo
nies, G. Olds, of Oregon City, filled the
position of clerk. I. D. Taylor was a
member of the general committee on ar
rangements. A delegation from Falls City Lodge
visited the Oswego A. O. U. W. Lodge
Thursday night, the occasion being the
initiation of three new members, with
the addition of some impressive scenes,
originated by a member of that lodge.
The visitors were entertained in a hospi
table way by the Oswego Workmen,
reputation as entertainers, extends even
to the state of Washington. Among
those who attended the festivities were :
C. H. Dye, chief orator; H. Hamlin,
O. (i. Miller, John McUetcbie, B. R.
Kimraell, Sam Ho.ike, James Edmunds,
David ;Caufield, Theodore Miller, Clar

A steel cirder bridge, 80 feet long,
near Rockford, Wash., to replace a
Howe Truss bridge.
The following culverts will be built,
which will permit the frame trestles in
those places to be filled in and a solid
embankment substituted therefor :
Eight-foot arch culvert, 90 feet long,
Twelve-foot arch culvert, 105 feet
long ; sixteen-foot arch culvert, 100 feet
long ; six-foot arch culvert, 120 feet long
and another of the same sizn, 72 feet
long, between Freeman and Chester.
The foregoing makes -a total of 13
bridges and five concrete masonry arc
culverts, all to be erected thU year, the
contract for the concrete abutments and
masonry for the culverts having already
been Int. An order was placed some
time ago with the American Bridge Co,
for 1.661,000 pounds of steel for super
structure ot some of the bridges. This
order included three steel girders to be
erected on concrete abutments which
were put in last season on the changed
line between Echo and Nolin.
More important than any of the above
is the contract for what will be known
as the "Rowena Change of Line."
Seven miles of entirely new road bed on
changed location will be built between
tunnel No. 3 and The Dalles. The rea
sons for this improvement are that the
present road is quite crooked and will be
abandoned entirely between the points
given. The present line has a maxi
mum Curvature of 10 degrees, while on
the new line it will be but 4 degree?.
The new line will be 1000 feet shorter
than the 'dd.

The Annual Report of Superintend

Conditions in County Pub-

County Superintendent J C. Zinser's
annual report shows that there ar
5,688 persons in Clackamas county be
tween the ages of 4 and 20 drawing
school money, and entitled to the bene
fits of free public schooling. Out ot this
number 2889 are males, and 2799 fe

school system. They are as follows:
Frances and Mannie Brickley, Milwau
kie; Oscar Crawfoid, Currinsvi'lei
Daisy Hostettler, Needy; Lena Klein
smith, Clarkes; Oscar Stewart, Stone,
school centua shows 20 less persons than
last year, but it b no indications that
the population is decreasing. It is more
likely that none of the district clerks
stuffed their census returns this year.
The report also shows that only 40 males
and 59 females under six years old, have
been attending 'school.
Two hundred and sixty-three teachers
have done duty in 122 school houses in
Clackamas county, during the past year,
78 males and 185 females, bightv-tive
held state papers, 44 first grade certifi
cates, 69 second, 50 third, and 3 primary
certificates. Thirty-two are holding
permits. Sixty-four hold certificates of
institute attendance. Ninety-eight
have made application for certificates,
and 15 of the number failed. Twenty.
two certi Mates granted in other counties
were endorsed. The number of teacherti
taking educational journals is 158.
Nearly one-third of the persons of
school age were not puplils 1169 males
and 833 females, making a total of 2002.
The number attending school outside
of districts was 204 The average daily
attendance was 30.4, while the average
number of months of school taught was
30.4. The number of organized districts
is 120, and three new school houses have
been erected. The county superintend
ent has visited 75 schools.
The value of school apparatus and fur
niture has materially increased during
the year, the value of apparatus being
$20,390, while school houses and grounds
are valued at $1Z3,4U3. School libraries
contain 1976 books, Z9d ot which were
added during the past year. It takes
considerable money to run the schools
of Clackamas county, the receipts from
all sources for the past year being
$66,589.62, while the disbursements were
$63,063.14. The average tax lew is a
little over six mills, where districts
made special levies.
The average monthly salaries are for
males, $40.91 ; female, $3179. The num

year, and it is estimated that the
county fund will be about $2500 less
than last year on account of the less as
sessment valuation and the further tact
that the fori closure of state school fund
mortgages have decreased the sum total
of taxable property.
Three new sonooi houses have been
erected during the past year, and many
other improvements have been made.
On the whole, the schools of Clackamas
county are in a gratifying condition of
Competent talent will have a place on
the program of instruction at the annual
teachers' institute to be held here dur
ing the first week in September by
Superintendent Zinser. Among the in
structors will be l resident Uampbell, ot
the state normal school of Monmouth;
Frank Rigler, superintendent of the
Portland city schools; K, F. Robinson,
county superintendent of Multnomah
county. An eftort is being made to se
cure Professor Sheldon, of Eugene. Un
der the provisions of the new law,
teachers who do not hold a certificate of
institute attendance, are required to pay
back into the district treasury $5 out of
their wages. Teachers shouid take a
pride in this institute work, and not try
to evade the law by attempting to get a
certificate by a few hours attendance.
Those who try to dodge the issue are the
ones that need the instruction most.
