will be the baseball tournament, in
which five teams will participate. There
will be other athletic contests also.
Very satisfactory arrangements havet
been made this year in the matter of
transportation rates. The Southern Pa
cific Company has agreed to a rate of 25
cents from Portland to the Chautauqua
grounds and will run special trains
throughout the day from the East Wash
ington street station. Tickets will be
sold on any street car in Portland, con
necting with the City & Suburban lines,
fnr RK renin. Tliat includes transporta
tion to the grounds and admission to the
Chautauqua buildings. The Southern
Pacific Company will run one special
train fr.-mi Portland durinii the lorenoon
oml at nnnn a. second special will be
started, the two trains alternating in
leavinu Portland every hour. Tbis will
be a decided advantage to the Chau
tftiinna Association and will doubtless
increase the attendance.

I'LAS MADE MY ARCHITECT JiEER
An Addition lo ( lnk:iiniis County Court
House to be Unlit This
A small addition to the Clackamas
county court house will lie constructed
this Summer. The purpose to be served
is that of providing a record vault and in
this respect, the receptacle for the county
records will be absolutely fire proof and
as nearly absolutely burglar proof as
possible. The present interior arrange
ment of the offices in the court house
will also be altered to the extent (lht
ouarters on the lower floor will be cre
ated for the county Bvhuol i-uperinten-dent
who now occupies rooms jii t.ie
upper floor of the building. Work on
the improvements that have been de
termined upon, will begin an soon as bids
can be received for performing the con
tract and as the weather becomes lavor-
Architect Delos D. Neer, of Portland,
was in the citv Tuesdiy afternoon anil
submitted to County Judge Kyan plans
for the new addition. Ihe plans lor ttie
original building were made in 1883 by
Mr. Neer, who was then associated witli
a Mr. LoKomer. in sunmiciing ins
plans, which will likely be adopted by
the court, Mr. Neer is unusually gener
ous, "turner tnsn nave me piana ior
Ihe propo ed changes and alterations
made by another architect and run the
risk of the architecture and general plan
of the original building harmed, I would
contribute to the connty without cost my
own plans and specifications" said Archi
tect Neer in discussing toe subject.
The new addition will be 18x21 feet
and will he constructed at the rear end
of the building. It will be used ex
clusively as a record vault in which will
be deposited all of ihe valuable records
of the county. The addition will be one
story high, enclosed in two feet walls,
with concrete floor and roof on steel
girdera. Aitention will he given every
detail that it may be made to conform to
the style of architecture in the main
building. On the north of the addition
will be arranged a lavatory and wash
rooms, something that is much needed
at the court house Au estimate as to
the cost of the addition has not been
As stated in the foregoing paragraphs,
the arrangement of the offices on the
main floor is to be altered. In this con
nection it is more than likely that some
of the offices, particularly thoie of the
clerk and the assessor, will at the same
time b provided with some . counters or
railings some means of conducting Ihe
work of those departments with a reason
ble degree of privacy and without con
stant interruption from visitors. This is
impossible in the clerk'd office at present
as there are no means by which any of
the records ol the office can be withheld
from promiscuous inspection by a curious
The virions conntv olfit-ers are prepar
ing their femi-annual reports. These
reports wili show Iho aggregate expense
of conducting the county for the past six
months and will reveal the true financial
condition of the county. It is under
stood these statements will show an im
proved condition in the fiuancial stand
ing of the county in that the aggregate
of the county's indebtedness will be ap
preciably reduced. The administration
of the county's affairs during the past
half year has very generally been econ
omically conducted. Any reduction in
the county's obligations will be appre
ciated by the taxpayeis who will give
proper credit to the officers who may be
responsible for such au improved condi
tion. Tax Collections.
Sheriff Shiver has collected on the
1902 tax roll a little more than $100,000.
The roll originally represented $177,000
so it will be seen that the bulk of the
taxes has been collected. Several hun
dred dollars of additional tax money was
this week deposited in the county treas
ury by Sheriff Shaver.
