Finance Committee Meets and For-
Bialutes Plana Mass Meeting for
The coming Fourth of July celebration in
Portland promises to eclipse previous ef
forts. If the men who are interested in
the matter are able to carry out their
plans, it will be an occasion worth attend
ing, and all Oregon will doubtless come
An enthusiastic meeting of the finance
committee was held last night In the City
Hall, with General O. Summers in the
chair. The meeting -was well attended,
notwithstanding the political excitement in
Those who have been engaged In the
canvass made reports showing that the
people will subscribe liberally. There was
some complaint that the larger concerns
were not as liberal as the committee had
expected, and the chairman ordered the
canvass to continue until Thursday night,
when final reports will be made at a mass
meeting, which will be held In room 630,
Chamber of Commerce building.
Those who feel an Interest In the coming
Fourth of July celebration are urged to

ing last night by I. N. Fleischner, Julius
Meier. George W. Caldwell, Louis Dam
musch, J. D. Mann, E. House, S. Solomon,
L. Samuel. L. M. Clarke, J. M. Gilbert,
and A. D. Rockafellow.
Many Interesting features were suggest
ed by these speakers, and more enthusiasm
prevailed than at any former meeting.
General Summers made several sugges
tions, which will be carried out. It was
decided to begin the celebration July ?.
and keep it up until the 5th. Everything
will take place on the streets. The fire
works and Illumination promise to surpass
anything seen here in years.
It is the aim of the finance committee
to use care in the expenditure of money.
All purchases will be made at home, and
no Individual member of the committee
will be permitted to disburse funds or
make contracts without the sanction of the
It is the purpose of the committee to

feature of the occasion. Many new things
are to be provided for this. The Elks
have been Invited, and have accepted the

GOOD BILLIARD TOURNAMENT
Many Exciting: Contents Plaj cd at
--The tournament games at the Commer
cial Club are progressing quite rapidly.
Monday, May 2S, W. H. Hurlburt pyed
P. H. Trumbull. These two aro In the
first class. In fact being the only first
class -billiard-players In this tournament.
C. O. Wa'te should have been in this
class, but, as there was no one to pair
him with, it was found necessary to place
him in the sond class, with a handicap.
The game was won by Trumbull by a
score of 100 to 93. Hurlburt gained at
first, until he was about 20 points ahead
of Trumbulll, who here made a run of 15.
thereby making the score somewhat
olaser, and It remained so until it reached
S3 to 93 In favor of Hurlburt, and Hurl
burt's next shot. Ho had the two object
balls against the end cushion, and could
easily have made his five points neces
sary to win. but, bo'iejvlng' it was best to
be as cautious as possible, endeavored to
make one of the object balls strike tha
cushion and return in a still better posi
tion, but fumbled and failed Jn his object
balls as well as count, leaving the balls
in good position for TrumbuH, who mado
a run cf seven and out, thereby making
the flnlsn of this game very exciting.
Thursday. Henry Huggins defeated Dr.
J. H Davis by a score of 75 to 6S. Huggin
gained at first, and bad a considerabl
lead, but towards the end of the gams
Davis materially reduced his lead. They

Saturday, Julius Heilbron was to play
J. G. Rcddick. but the latter not appear
ing, the game was given to Mr. Heilbron
by default. The game between Dr. C. H.
"Wheeler and T. H. Potter was decided the
same way, Mr. Potter being on hand. Dr.
Whoe'er not appearing.
Monday. June 4. C O. "Waite played D.
D. Oliphant. Mr. "WaHe Is a very fine
player, and capable of good-sized runs,
much beyond Mr. Oliphant's capacity.
Nevertheless, Mr. Oliphant played a fine,
steady game: in fact, surprised the spec
tators by making C7 points to Waite" s 75.
As the committee had given Oliphant the
benefit of a 35 handicap, this made his
Mr. Trumbull now leads in the first
class, and In the second Potter and Dun

Officer Tells of 111 Experienced In
A letter has been received In. this city
from Lieutenant Jonn P. Hafson, of the
Thirty-fifth Regiment, now In the Philip
pines. Lieutenant Hasson, who is a na
tive of Vancouver, Wash., went to the
Philippines as a private with the First
"Washington Regiment, and after the muster-out
of the Volunteers was made a Sec
ond Lieuterant in the Thirty-fifth Regi
ment. Lieutenant Haseon, In writing of
hte experience in the campaign since No
vember, says: "We arrived here In No
vember, and were Immediately orderec
to Join Lawton In his northern campaign,
but at a town called Ar?yat we were
stalled for over a month. During that
time I was Battalion Quartermaster Ot
transportation, having all the work of
transporting rations, etc, further north
ward. "On December 12 we mobilized at San
Isidro, then Lawton's headquarters, and
made a move on San Miguel de Mayumo,
taking this place with about half an
hour's fight. From there I was shifted to
San Ild?fonso to command that pest, with
a detachment of 30 men. Here I stayed
for one month, having an occasional skir
mish or two. On January 12 I was detailed
on duty with Maccabebe scouts, mak

REPAIR SHOPS BUSY.
They Have Plenty of Worlc Mend
Ins Broken "Wheels.
Portland bicycle repair shops are now
busy as they can be, as this Is the height
of the bicycle season, and the wheels will
break down occasionally. Extra men are
being employed at nearly all the shops,
and In many places they work until 10
o'clock at night, as every rider wants his
wheel repaired right away. The prices
for bicycle repairing have not advanced,
however, and even members of the Bicycle
Board of Trade do not charge the card
limit, as posted up in their places of busi
ness. A member of the combine said yes
terday that the organization had not been
effected for the purpose of raising prices,
but to guard against bad bills, and to
make collections easier.
Roads and paths are now at their best,
as the Spring's dampness has disappeared
and the Summer's ruts and dust have not
yet formed. A few weeks more of dry
weather will make wheeling In the rural
districts less pleasant, and the business
of the repair shops will then begin to fall

their first unnual meeting in the piflce of

Many matters of Interest to the prune
growers of the Northwest were discussed.
It was decided to make a number ot rec
ommendations to the stockholders of the
association, who meet today In room 524
Chamber of Commerce building.
Among these recommendations will e
one to -the effect that in view of the fact
that 75 per cent, of the prune crop Is now
controlled by the association, that its
efforts along the lines already laid down
be continued, and that the crop of prunes
be handled through the organization.
Another recommendation will be that
a slip bearing the name and" number of
the packer be placed In each box of fruit,
thus enabling a buyer to trace any bad
package back to the original owner, even
though the goods had beeen inspected
and passed by the Inspectors.
It was also declared to be the desire
of the growers to fix a minimum price on
Oregon, or Italian prunes, and on French
prunes. "When the prices are thus fixed,
each grower can sell his own fruit if he
so desires, but must do It through the
association, and all collections must be
made through that organization. This is
to enable those who have large customers
whom they have been supplying hereto
fore to continue to do so without any
change of methods. v
The -directors will further recommend
that warehouses be established In the
BUY A SOUVENIR BUTTON.
Now the volunteer committee Is
on the sale of the 16th thousand
of the souvenir buttons turned out
since the work began. At least
25.000 must be sold, so it will be
seen the demand ehould not ceast.
There are thoufands of persons In
Portland, not to speak of other
parts of the state, who do not own
or wear one of these neat buttons.
Every cent paid for a button aids o
redeem the state's honor In an en
terprise to which It le committed.
That !s, erection of a monument .to
Oregon's dead soldiers who fell In
the late wnr. Voluntary contribu
tions had about ceased when sale
of the souvenir buttons commenced
to push the work of raising the
fund. A large number of buttons
must be eold, and everybody not
purchasing Is expected to do his
part. If all will buy a button the
burden will be felt by none, and a
magnificent sum will be realized.

too, become purchasers.
various prune-growing centers, so that
all prunes sold from such centers can
be shipped direct, thus saving rehandllnff.
As these recommendations are said to
have come from the people Interested In
prune culture, little doubt is entertained
that the meeting of the growers today
win unanimously adopt them.
Secretary Dosch says the organization,
while not controlling 75 per cent of the
acreage, actually controls 75 per cent of
the crop, and that perhaps 90 per cent ot

General Crop Abont "Walla "Walla
"Will Be Above the Averacc.
J. P. McMmn and W. D. Smith, two
prominent fruitgrowers and. frultshlppers
of Walla Walla, arrived in Portland yes
terday to attend the meeting of the Cured
Fruit Association. Mr. Smith bears the
distinction of being the first prune dryer
In the "Walla Walla country: Mr. McMir.n
was second to make experiments in that
line. These gentlemen Introduced an in
dustry which has grown to considerable
proportions In that country.
Mr. McMlnn visits Willamette Valley
and Western Washington prune districts
yearly to gather new Ideas and methods
for adaptation to the Walla Walla country-
Mr. Smith has done much for fruit
culture in Sputheastern Washington by
making a study of Montana "and Idaho
markets, and creating a demand abroad
for Walla Walla garden and orchard prod
ucts. Speaking of the present season's jbros-
pocts. Mr. McMlnn Is hopeful. He says
that In general the fruit crop of the
Walla Walla Valley will be above the
average. All of the fruit is developing
large size and fine quality. While there
will not he a heavy crop Of peaches, those
which are on the trees are of exceptional
size and flavor. The prune crop will ex
ceed that which has been produced in any
previous year. Walla Walla apples which
have attained reputation as far East as
Kansas City and Chicago, will be pro
duced In abundance this season. The
Spring was too damp to be favorable for
early melons, but late melons are getting
on well. The alfalfa hay crop will be
larger this "season than It has ever been
In the Walla Walla country, grass do
ing well on both the heavy and light land.
While there Is some tendency on heavy
lands to rust In wheat, the stalks of the
wheat have not yet been affected. When
Mr. McMlnn left Walla Walla the weather
had turned off dry, so that It was hoped
that the wheat would mature without
further Injury from the dampness and

terest here to me Is the going of General
Otis and the coming of the commission.
For selfish, personal reasons I am sorry
to see Otis going. He has shown him
self to be a wonderful man one In a
million. History will rank him with the
great Americans. I am afraid, though,
he has put off his going too long. He
has devoted all of his tlmo and brain to
the task set beforo him, and has worn
himself out. He Is not looking well, and
I am afraid he has drawn too much on
his vitality. For the 20 months he has
been here he has been at work before 7
A. M., and kept at It all day and Into
the night. For a long tlmo he contented
himself Trlth a light lunch In his office
at noon to save time required in going to
and returning from his home. He has not
had a Sunday or a holiday for rest In all
that time. He has worn himself out
through devotion to his duty, and has ac

OREGON CITIES DEMAXD IMPROVE
MENTS AT MOUTH OF RIVER.
Trustees of Chamber of Commerce
"Want Uncle Sam to Ship Direct
Members of the Portland Chamber of
Commerce are alarmed lest Congress
should adjourn without providing funds
for repairs on the Jetty at the mouth of
the Columbia. For months they have been
urging the Oregon delegation in Wash
ington to insist upon the appropriation
A few days ago Senator McBride was
asked by telegraph to notify the Presideift
of the Chamber of Commerce who had
charge of this matter in Washington. He
wired back that Joseph G. Cannon was
chairman of the House conference on
sundry civil appropriations.
This telegram was read at the regular
weekly meeting of tho trustees of the
Chamber of Commerce yesterday. It was
stated in this connection that it was un
derstood that Mr. Cannon would not ob
ject to this appropriation going through,
provided It was agreeable to Mr. Burton,
In charge of the river and harbor appro
After considerable discussion, it was de
cided by the trustees to wire both Chair
man Cannon and Chairman Burton. Ac
cordingly, a telegram was sent to each
of them, stating that the people of the
Columbia River Valley were exceedingly
anxious that the appropriation go through.
This Is to be backed up by similar tele
grams from Astoria, Salem, The Dalles
and Walla Walla, and the trustees of the
Portland Chamber hope to have a favor
able report from Washington within a day
They declare that If the $200,000 needed
for repairs on the jetty is not forthcoming
this year, it will be a great loss, as the
jetty will almost go to pieces, thus mak
ing it necessary to do the work all over
Goods Shipped -via Seattle.
A letter was read at the meeting of the
trustees yesterday from a Portland mer
chant, stating that the goods bought In
Portland by the Government for Alaska
were being sent to Seattle for shipment.
Some thought that perhaps thi3 was
because the Government had a transport
going up at that time from the Sound.
Others thought it was done for other rea
sons. The Oregon delegation in Congress
was wired the particulars in the cases.
These gentlemen were requested to In
sist upon Uncle Sam sending his Portland
purchases direct, as boats were going from
here to Alaska at stated periods.
The trustees think that by thus calling
attention to this matter they will not only
turn this busIncssinto Portland steam
boat companies, but will save the Govern
ment fielght from here to the Sound.
Nat C. Goodivin Coming.
Nat C. Goodwin and Maxlne Elliott will
bo seen at the Marquam Grand next
Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. The
sale of seats will begin Saturday morn
ing. They will present for the first time here
a new play, entitled, "When We Were
Twenty-one," from the pen of H. V. Es
mond. In New York, where Mr. Goodwin
and Miss Elliott filled a long engagement
at the Knickerbocker Theater, the presa
and public were unanimous in pronouncing
It the best play of the season. Tho
piece is a distinct departure from the
usual style of playwrights. The story
Is simple, and the value of the play In Its
buoyancy, freshness and sincerity, and
the humor of the situations, character and
dialogue. It Is said to abound In senti
ment. Mr. Goodwin and Miss Elliott are
credited with success of exceptional
artistic value. Mr. Goodwin plays an old
ish bachelor, devoted to the well-being of
his dead friend's son, and oblivious to the
love of a young girl who Is his ward. The
opportunities afforded Miss Elliott are
telling, and the manner in which she has
connected herself In what Is undoubtedly
her best role entitles her to equally share
the honors. Prominent among the players
