Subsidy la So Near to Completion
That There In Aoiv Scarcely a.
Chance of Fnllnre.
The people of St. Johns and surround
ings are Jubilant over the favorable pros
pects for the establishment of a great
JSO.OO iron and shipbuilding plant on the
water front of that place within the next
two years by Wolff & Zwlcker. As a re
sult of their efforts this company has
bonded the SO-acre tract of A. "L. Ulnar
and also three and a half acres of river
frontage directly In front of the town,
formerly occupied by the barrel factory.
In addition to these bonded and purchased
properties, the company has received a
donation of 10 acts from the Ulnars on
the river front, t.nd connecting with the
other portion of the Minor tract, making
a solid possession, and providing ample
room for the establishment of a great
shipbuilding plant at St. Johns. The 19
acres donated together with the three and
a half acres of the old barrel factory
grounds gives about 1300 feet deep water
frontage on the Willamette River. In ad
dition to the land transactions the peo
ple have undertaken to raise a subsidy of
$20,000. of which sum something over $1S,
003 has been secured, and It la considered
certain that the full amount will be
raised. The conditions are that Wolff &
Zwlcker shall establish a plant at St.
Jolms. costing $20,000, within two years'
time, and shall commence the erection
of this plant within one year.
Since the Doembecher factory failed to
bo located at St. Johns the people there
have been bestirring themselves at a lively
rate. They have worked as a united who'.e
and with great energy and enthusiasm.
They had land, but to raise a $20,000 suh
ddy 'was a job that would have appalled
a less enterprising community, but the
fact that they have about completed the
bonus shows that they have not been
wasting their energy. The subscribers to
this subsidy are required to sign the fol
lowing paper with the amount of their sub
scriptions attested before a notary:
Whereas, the Wolff & Zwlcltcr Iron
Works, a corporation organized under the
laws of the State of Oregon, has under

present plant, and the establishment of
a shipyard In connection therewith, and
proposes to construct a plant which shall
cost not less than two hundred and fifty
thousand dollars ($200,000 00), and shall em
ploy not less than 2X0 men, and.
Whereas, the Wolff & Zwlcker Iron
Works proposes to locate said plant nt
St. Johns, provided It shall receive such
subsidy as It shall deem sufficient to war

corporation shall begin said construction
within one year from date hereof: shall
complete said construction within two
years from date hereof; and when

had to be made up. but thinks that there

F. X. Mathleu'a cabin. Native Sons of
Oregon, In Butteville, was formally re
ceived Into the grand cabin, with appro
priate exercises, yesterday afternoon. The
grand lodge organizers?, composed of
Grand President Sol Blumauer, Grand
Secretary Eugene D. White and Grand
Lecturer Fred Saylor, left Portland on tho
steamer Altona at 7 A. M., arriving at
Butteville about 11 o'clock, amid great
demonfTtratlon and the roaring of a can
non. Later In the day they were Joined
by the party from Salem, headed by Gov
The log cabin built especially for head
quarters of the new lodge was dedicated
In the afternoon at 2 o'clock. The rit
ualistic work was performed by Grand
President Blumauer, Grand Secretary
White and Alex Sweek and Captain C. T.
Belcher, a acting grand vice-president,
and grand marshal, respectively. The work
was done In the quaint old cabin Itself,
but as It was large enough to hold only
about one-third of the gathering, the pro
gramme was continued in the spacious assembly-hall
of the schoolhousc next door.
The concluding part of the programme
was begun with the appropriate song,
"Oregon." by the Butteville choir, which
was fallowed by an excellent recitation
by John Mathleu. grandson of F. X.
Mathleu. Gertie Cone, a 12-year-old girl,
rendered two selections on the organ,
which would have been a credit to any
ono many years her senior. Grace Cra
ven, who will not be In her teens for four
or five years, amused the audience Erectly
with her recitation.
Governor Geer next delivered the ora
tion of the day. He epoke mainly about
the connection of Butteville with the his
tory of the state. The Governor said It
was particularly interacting history to him,
as the residence of his grandfather for
many years. At what Is now Champoeg
was held the meeting at which It wne- de
cided that Oregon should take the flag of
our glorious nation, which nearly half the
population opposed. Governor Geer graph
ically dracrlbed that historic assemblage,
adding that but ono man who was at that
congress now lives to tell the tale, and thaf
to F. X. Mathleu, after whom the new
camp Is named. The speaker closed by
paying a glowing tribute to that man and
the other stanch pioneers of the state.
F. II. De Witt, representing Abernethy's
cabin. No. L of Portland, sprang a sur
prise by presenting the new lodge with a
handsome gold medal for Joseph La Bonte,
tho oldest Native Son In Oregon. Mr. La
Bonte, who lives at St. Paul, about 10
miles from Butteville. was born In As
toria, September, ISIS. H!o father, a
French-Canadian, came to Oregon from
St. Louis with the trading firm or Louis
& Hunt. Joseph, though now in his S2d
year, Ut still hale and hearty, and shorn
no signs of feebleness. He performs hij
regular duties on his sister's farm, and
is able to do as much work as any man
on the place. He Is rarely 111. though ho
has survived his wife and all his children.
He showed as much Joy on the presenta
tion of the medal as a 10-year-old boy.
This -concluded the programme, and th
Portland and Salem delegations left Butte
ville for home amid the cheers of the
populace. The new cabin starts out with
a large membership and every Indication
TRAVEL HEAVIER THAN EVER

f Morrison of Conjrestlon.
Team travel over Madison-Street bridge
Is heavier than It was before being closed
for repairs last Fall, according to Super
intendent Keith, and so Morrison-Street
bridge has been relieved of a large pro
portion of Its burden. Madison-Street
bridge Is favored by teamsters whenever
practicable, as Its ease of approach and
greater width Insure Its patrons more
comfort and less danger. Besides this,

The Madison-Street bridge draw will
be the next thing to engage the atten
tion of Multnomah County Commission
ers, according to City Engineer Chase,
who was viewing the old swinging deck
yesterday. "It looks pretty wobbly," he
said. "It will need to be renewed, and
need It soon."
The cost of rebuilding the stationary
portions of this bridge amounts to about
$33,000. Mr. Chase says, and a new draw
will cost In the neighborhood of $15,000.
The time required for rebuilding the
draw, according to Mr. Keith, would be
about 2S days. Travel would be entirely
suspended during that time, as the draw
could not be swung, and so would have
to bo left open, resting longitudinally on
The old draw will be used as long as
compatible with safety, and dally In
spection has to be resorted to In order
to guard against accident. The bodies
of Its supporting timbers are still In good
condition, but the wood Is decaying at the
ends, where the strain Is principally felt.

BEETLES AND BUTTERFLIES
Another Valuable and Interesting
Addition to the City Museum.
Another Interesting and valuable addi
tion has been made to the City Museum
by L L Hawkins. Mrs. C. A. Kalus,
living at Tenth and Couch streets, has
loaned to the museum for a considerable
time a splendid collection of beetles, bugs
and butterflies. Tho bugs are of the
greatest value as on entomological
study, and represent an amount of pains
taking. Intelligent work, poorly suggested
by the small space In which they are
arranged. Mrs. Kalus' husband has al
ways been a most enthusiastic entomolo
gist. A German by birth, and a man of
wide travels, his opportunities for pursu
ing this hobby have been great. For the
past 15 years he has assiduously gathered
strange and new species of bugs, particu
larly those of brilliant coloring or pos
sessing unusual Interest. The result Is a
splendid display of gaudy llttlo Insects,
some of which ore armed with legs and
arms of a startling length and forml
dableness for attack or defense. It Is
raro that a resident of this country be
holds beetles larger than a good-sized
mouse, and rarer still to behold one armed
with a beak resembling the weapon of a
Mrs. Kalus. to whom her husband had
given the collection, has loaned It to th
museum, that all studying Insects may
have the advantages of seeing It, espe
cially school children. The Insects are
not arranged or classified, but have been
placed In the case for tho purpose of pro
ducing tho best effect. The symmetry
with which colors correspond and sizes
balance gives the collection the appear
ance of a picture. Mr. Kalus knows the
history, habits and peculiarities of each,
which forms a fund of information thrill
ing to even the most apathetic Up In the
corner is a big tarantula, and immedi
ately below it a tarantula hawk. Down
In Southern California and the South
people are familiar with the method .by
which this bright-winged bee destroys
the most formidable of poisonous In
sects, and utilizes the carcass for hatch
ing the conqueror's young. This Is but
an Illustration of two insects, and Mr.
Kalus can go to each and tell some
thing almost equally entertaining and in
structlve. Besides tho bugs there are two cases of
butterflies, and one box with a mammoth
butterfly from Manila. P. I. This fine
specimen, called Atlrus. measures 10
Inches from tip to tip. and is probably
one of the largest butterflies preserved in
any collection of the world. One of the
cases contains an unusually choice as
sortment of rare butterflies of brilliant
colorings, while the other Is but little be
hind It In merit.
While this collection Is in the museum.
It will be worth the time of all the chil
dren, as well as older persons, to visit
and Inspect It thoroughly.

be charged with dynamite and this will
be exploded by meana of an electric but
tery, the platform and workmen having
been first removed, and the rock will thus
be blown to plecea. The larger pieces will
be removed by means of the snagpuller,
and thus a dangerous Impediment to the
navigation of the Conuille will be disputed
of. The river will then be thoroughly
tmagged to the head of navigation and
some half-dozen ban between Myrtle
Point and Arago dredged, and the naviga
tion put in the best possible condition
with the funds available.
