WHO WILL BE COLONEL?
QUESTION 3fOW AGITATING PORT
General Summers, Colonel Everett
and Others Have Been Urged,
to Accept the Position.
"Who will command the Third Regiment,
O. N. G.? Is a question agitating the
Guard of Portland at the present time.
Pcrnaps the same thought Is in the minds
cf Valley Guardtmen, as regimental or
ganization has been ordered there also,
but it .'s unlikely that such keen Interest
centers in the commanding officer. Sev
eral names have been mentioned for the
Portland and Oregon City regiment, with
what authority, however, is unknown.
Among ihce are Gerieial Owen Summers,
formerly ColoneJ of tne First Regiment,
O. N. G., and latterly Colonel or the Sec
ond Oregon Volunteera; Colonel James
Jackson, retired, of the United States
Army, and for years intimately connected
w.th the State Guard; Edward Everett,
formerly Lieutenant-Colonel of the First
Rtglment, O. N. G.; Major R. G. Jubltz,
Junior Major of the First Regiment, O. N.
G., when It went out of service, and now
commanding the Portland Battalion of the
Colonel Jackson absolutely declines to
accept the command. General Summers
has often expressed his purpose to remain
out of the military service. Upon his re
turn from the Philippines he was quite
positive in this respect, but as the Inter
ests of the Guard urged the Volunteers
to continue their service, he relaxed to a
certain extent, and has said that lie would
again take up the work If it was found
needful to promote the state's welfare.
Whither General Summers regards It nec
essary to put the harness on again Is not
known. His friends state that he is ready
to renew his old-time efforts whenever it
appears that the welfare of the militia
demands a return of the experienced offi
cers who made the Guard what it was In
the past. The military records of botn
General Summers and Cblonel Jackson are
known to all.
Colonel Everett has been asked if he
would accept the command. His answer
is not known publicly. He was quite pop
ular when Lieutenant-Colonel, and bears
the name of a good tactician, as well as
a careful man In the work of headquar
ters. Major Jubitz Is a young man, and
the frequent mention of his name as a
possible Colonel of the new regiment bears
witness to the esteem In which he Is held.
Since being placed In command of the
First Battalion, he has done splendid work,
which is acknowledged by every officer
connected with the Guard, and has led
to the belief that ho would make an ener
getic regimental commander. It Is sel
dom one of Major Jubltz age Tecelves such
earnest support for tho flrst officer of a
Of the offices below that of Colonel, It
is regarded a certainty that Major Jubltz
will bo chosen Lieutenant-Colonel If any
other man is elected Colonel. There Is
not a man in the Guard that would deny
him this, If he does not receive the high
er honor. Then there are two majorities,
for which only three names have been
mentioned so far. These are Captain C
J2. McDonell, formerly Captain of Com
pany H, First Regiment. O. N. G., and
Company H, Second Oregon Volunteers;
Captain G. C von Egloffsteln, command
ing Company G, of the First Battalion,
and instructor in the Bishop Scott Acad
emy; and Lieutenant Fielding S. Kelly,
formerly Captain of Separate Company
F, at Oregon City, and First Lieutenant
and Battalion Adjutant of the First Bat
talion. Second Oregon Volunteers. Cap
tain McDonell's fame as commanding offi
cer of Company H Is known throughout
Portland. Captain von Egloffsteln has
been In the Guard about two years, as
commanQlng officer of Company G, and
bears a good name as an officer. Lieu
tenant Kelly was credited by his superiors
with having one of the very best com
panies. If not the best, in the National
Guard, at the time of the Spanish "War,
and his service In Luzon, a part of the
time as commanding officer of Company
A Tas always excellent.
Thus it is seen that choice of any of the
men suggested will be good. One idea that
has been discussed is not to elect a Col
onel of the regiment at this time. Major
Jubltz, as Lieutenant-Colonel, would be In
virtual command. But ngalnst this It Is
argued that if it is the desire of the line
officers of the regiment to place Major
Jubltz In command, why not elect him
Colonel at once? This course would avoid
tho uncertainty of leaving the first posi
tion In the regiment vacant. There are
60 many reasons why the full complement
of officers should be selected at once that
a Colonel will undoubtedly be elected. By
waiting It is not evident that some man
would appear on the scene who would ac
cept the command and who would be any
more satisfactory to the officers then than
now. The order Issued by the Adjutant
General commands the election of all offi
cers. Although the names given have been
moro widely discussed than any others.
It Is possible that men not included in
tho list above will be given some of tho
offices. There are several eligibles who
would be acceptable. Ex-officers of the
Guard are quits numerous In Portland,
and there aro a few of the Volunteer offi
cers not in the militia. In the Guard as
now organized It Is also possible to find
good material. Captain C. E. Dick, of
Company F, is the senior officer of the
fcattaUon, and entitled to ono of the ma
jorities, according to the usual custom of
promotions. Captain Dick has expressed

a preference to remain with his com
pany, and has not been mentioned very
much as a choice. Others are to be had
with more or less field experience.
Thursday evening the election will be
held that determines the question. Every
line officer of the command, including the
Captain and two Lieutenants from tho
Oregon City company, are expected to be
out to cast their ballots.
Governor Geer and Adjutant-General
Gantenbein have decided to begin the an
nual encampment this year July 7, and
continue it for eight days. Some time
ago the Military Board recommended that
an encampment of the entire Guard bo
held this year. "When this recommenda
tion was submitted to the Governor, ho
asked the Adjutant-General to prepare
estimates of the cost. Including the num
ber of men expected to be available. This
was. done accordingly, with the result-that
the Governor asked that the period first
suggested, ten days, be cut down to eight.
July was considered the best month for
the encampment, for several reasons. Ear
lier, the Spring work of many of the sol
diers would be interfered with, and later
the troops from the country would be
taken from harvest. The first of the
month was not thought expedient, nor tho
latter part, as there are many soldiers
engaged In clerical work, which is al
ways heavier at the two extremes of a
month. After considering everything, July
7 was determined upon for the commence
ment. This is Saturday. By having Sat
urday the first day of the encampment,
both Sundays are taken up, thus making
the va :atlon from usual work as short as
possible. By Monday following the flrst
Saturday the camp will be In order for
tho routine work of drills and exercises.
. No place has been decided upon yet, al
though Salem seems to have the prefer
ence. The capacious Fair Grounds near
tho city, good water, and convenience for
transportation, render It a very desirable
site for the military work proposed. Sa
lem has not been given the plum, but
will likely be, unless contingenies arlso
not foreseen now. The city will bo bene
fited to a considerable extent, in a finan
cial way, by having the encampment near
it. It Is expected that about 1100 soldiers
will be on the ground, for a period of
'eight days. Each private receives $1 50 a
day, which it is now available to pay im
mediately, upon the ground, instead of
after the soldiers return home, as here
tofore. Forage tor the horses and food
for tho men, besides certain emergency
Quartermaster stores, will have to be
provided. Most of these expenditures will
inuro to tho benefit of the merchants of
that city. There will probably be some
regulation promulgated later enabling
only such soldiers as have been enlisted
for a month or so previous to take part
in the encampment. This has been found
quite useful to prevent stuffing of the
ranks a few days before departure for
tho encampment by men who are glad to
avail themselves of its privileges, but
avoid as much of the service at home as
possible. If the ranks are filled with
green men, unlearned In the ordinary
drills, the benefits of the encampment are
largely lost, through their need of pri
mary Instruction. These are matters of
detail to bo taken up later.
GOLD DREDGE COMPLETED.
Amphibious Machine for Cape Nome
Being: Knocked Down.
The wonderful "tripod dredge." built at
tho boat yard just south of the city levee,
for the Monarch Gold Mining & Dredg

yesterday taking it to pieces and pre

at the bottoms of round, smooth timber

Its pants and wade ouUJnto the water and

STILL MORE HOUSE ROOM
PORTLAND'S GROWING POPULATION
Contracts Kow in Sight Which Will
Keep Builders Employed Through
the Year On the East Side.
The number of building permits Issued
hy the City Engineer last week shows
that there ls to be no cessation In the
matter of erecting business blocks and
private residences this Summer. The large
number of mechanics already at work
will be needed until the Winter of 1200-1901
sets in, as the cry Is still "more house
room." A good many more building proj
ects are on the tapis, and some of these
are already In the hands of the architects,
but the promoters are not ready yet to
make them public. There are enough,
however. In sight to keep the principal
contractors of the city figuring on esti
mates preparatory to the Jinal offering of
City carpenters have been working since
Tuesday last on the eight-hour schedule,
beginning In the morning at S and quit
ting at 5 in the afternoon. The new de
parture seems to work smoothly, as the
men are paid by the hour. That wages
are bound to advance is the opinion of
leading contractors, as this will be In
harmony with everything else in these
days of upward tendency, but the men
have thus far refrained from asking high
er wages while working on old contracts.
If a higher rate should be agreed on be
tween employer and employed, the In
crease will manifest Itself In the bids
hereafter offered. The present base rate
of carpenters' wages ls 52 50 per day, and
painters are paid about the same.
There was a little strike among Sheehy
Bros.' journeymen painters last week, but
the parties Interested think matters will
be adjusted In a few days. The members
of the painters' union objected to non
union men being employed on certain
jobs, and as the employers refused to
discharge the nonunion men, the others
quit. Painters are now working on the
eight-hour schedule. They formerly
The largest building In sight at present
ls the four-story brick to be erected for
the Failing estate, southeast corner of
Third and Washington. The architects
are now engaged on these plans, but it
will be probably several weeks before
they are ready for submittal to contrac
tors, as there will be a great deal of de
tail to be arranged for In the matter of
heating, lighting, elevators, etc The work
of removing the -frame buildings from the
quarter block will proceed forthwith,
however, and be followed by the excava
tion work of the basement.
A visit to the various buildings in course
of erection throughout the city shows that
great progress was made last week ex
cept In the case of the Good Samaritan
Hospital, where work was suspended from
lack of brick.
Two pretty residences are In course of
erection side by side on the west line of
Twelfth street, north of Jefferson. The
northerly building Is being put up by the
Title Guarantee & Trust Company for
George H. Hill, who will move In with
his family about the middle of July. The
other Is being erected by W. J. Fullam
for his own use. Each residence will

The basement of the Wolfe residence,
on King street, Is boing rapidly prepared
for the superstructure, and a large force
of carpenters will be put to work there
this week. This residence Is to cost be
tween $20,000 and 522,000, and will probably
be ready for occupancy this Fall.
East Side Buildings.
The building season Is fairly opened as
far as the East Side Is concerned. A
prominent contractor remarked yesterday
that he was figuring on half a dozen
houses, and contracts on them would cer
tainly be let within a few days. He had
reason to suppose that other contractors
were figuring on about the same number,
if not many more. He further estimated
that the number of houses under con
struction would continue to Increase all
through the season. The class of dwell
ings under construction and being figured
on is excellent. James Wiseman has

EAST SIDE REPUBLICANS
ARRANGEMENTS FCR A BIG DEM
ONSTRATION. Attempt to Turn Clnbs Over to Inde
pendents News From" Across
At the meeting of the Multnomah-Union
Republican Club, of the Ninth ward, held
Saturday night it was decided to appoint
a committee to confer with other regu
lar Republican Clubs of the East Side
In the arrangement of a big demonstra
tion toward the close of the present
month. The clubs Invited to participate
In this demonstration aro tho Sellwood,
U. S. Grant, Sunnyslde, and the clubs
of the Tenth and Eleventh wards. All
the clubs are requested to appoint com
mittees at once so that tho arrange
ments can be made without delay.
The outlook for an old-time Republican
majority for the entire Republican ticket
In tho four East Side wards ly regarded
as m'ost excellent. In the Ninth ward,
the largest ward In the city, there Is
complete harmony. It Is conceded that
Henry S. Rowe, candidate for Mayor,
will have a large majority.
Next Wednesday evening, the U. S.
Grant and Sellwood Republican Clubs will
have a Joint rally at Gruner's hall. Pres
ident Reinkie, and other members of the
Sellwood Club, have agreed to come
down In a body and attend this rally.
There promises to be a big demonstration.
These two only regular Republican Clubs
of the Eighth ward have made arrange
ments to hold several big gatherings In
the ward this month, and will support
each other In all these efforts.
A futile attempt was made yesterday
to swing the Sellwood Republican Club
for the Independents. The executive
committee held a meeting and refused to
sanction the permitting of any Inde
pendent candidate to speak under the
auspices of that club. The members of
this committee who stood firm are
Messrs. Pelffer, Miller and Burnslde. One
member is absent. One member, Henry
Upham, endeavored to induce the club
to Invite Independents, but failed. J.
E. Reinkie, president, declared yesterday
that he should absolutely refuse to pre
side at a meeting where the Independents
were Invited. Mr. Pelffer also said that
the Republicans of Sellwood are united
for the Republican ticket from top to
bottom. They will join with the U. S.
Grant Republican Club at tho rally next
The president of the Roosevelt Club
has swung that organization over to the
Independents, but the Independents need
not be too sure they have tho club.
Negotiations to Be Cloicd.
The negotiations between Archbishop
Christie and the University Land Com
pany for possession of the Portland Uni
versity property on the Peninsula will
terminate one way or the other this week.
At one tlmo the matter had been settled
for the transfer and deeds wero ready,
but there came up some sort of a hitch".
The Archbishop has submitted conditions
on which he will take tho property and
establish a school, and the Land Com
pany has them under consideration, and
will answer the present week. If fav
orable the work of getting the building
and grounds In condition for next fall
will be commenced at once. The present
buildings will be overhauled and re
paired. Two other structures 50x100 will
bo required for the school and will be
erected. Provision will be made for an
extensive gymnasium, baths, etc, and
everything that goes to make a great
school will bo furnished. There Is a
great interest centered In the outcome
of the negotiations on the Peninsula
and the result Is awaited with no small
anxiety. The- Archbishop has person
ally examined the ground with the Port
land priests, and they agree It ls an
Ideal place for a school, but that It will
cost much money and a great effort to
build It up.
East Side Notes.
The funeral of the late Ross Merrick,
pioneer of 1852. will take place this after
noon at 3 o'clock from the house. East
Pine, between East Twenty-third and
East Twenty-fourth streets. It will be
under the auspices of Washington Lodge,
No. 46. A. P. & A. M. Lone Fir will be
the place of Interment.
There will be an interesting meeting
of Gilbert Camp this evening at its
quarters. East Morrison street and Un
Gold at Bine River.
The Blue River mining district is be
ginning to turn out gold, and things are

EXCURSION TO SEASIDE
PAST. SACHEMS' ASSOCIATION GIVE
About 1500 People Attend Train
Delayed Crowd Orderly, hat
Fifteen hundred people standing In
a fine gusty rain, eating bake'd clams at
Seaside. Such was the experience of
those who attended the third annual ex
cursion of the Past Sachems' Associa
tion of the Improved Order of Red Men.
The crowd was voraciously hungry and
well It might be, for the trip down was
aggravatlngly slow. In the first place
the railroad train of 21 cars, was proba
by tho longest that ever pulled out of
Portland for tho resort down by the
sounding sea. There was some delay In
getting started. The train was adver
tised to leave Portland at 8:30 A. M,. hut
It was considerably past that hour when
i It started. It was crowded to its full
When about 25 miles out of Portland
there was a hotbox. Thlo caused a te
dious wait. It was clearly evident- that
the locomotive had a very heavy load
anyway. When the train neared Clif
ton the engine was out of water and the
entire equipment took anQther vacation.
It was exceedingly wise that many of
the excursionists brought lunches, for,
with the delays, the train failed to reach
Seaside until 2:40 P. M. an hour and 40
minutes late. The hopes that however
dark and lowering the weather at Port
land was In the morning it would be
bright at Seaside were doomed. The
crowd waa perfectly orderly and good
natured. Dr. P. S. Langworthy, who
had the excursion in charge, bandied the
affair In a praiseworthy manner and he
was generally commended.
There were a number of private cars In
the train. The Rainier people had two
thus placarded: Oregon City, one; Past
Sachems' Association. one; Dr. Lang
worthy, one. The remalner -were open
to the public generally.
In returning the start was made at
5 P. M.
It was unfortunate that the rain Inter
fered with the outing, which would other
wise have proven a pleasant affair.
Only one Incident occurred during the
excursion to roar what would otherwise
have proven an orderly affair. A young
fellow. Chance Curtis, residing at As
toria, took the down train for Seaside.
On returning; It was his Intention to go
through to Portland. He dropped oft
tho train at Astoria to speak to some
acquaintances. A man sitting in the
sixth car back from the engine, applied
an offensive epithet to Curtis. The mtter
retaliated with a blow from his fist which
broke the car window from the outside,
and landed well upon the man within.
The tetter's name was not learned. Cur
tis was promptly arrested by Chief of
JL Police Hallock and detained at Astoria.
