DEMANDS FIRE BOAT
Chamberof Commerce Urges
LOWER RATES OF INSURANCE
Petitions to Be Sent to Multnomah.
Delegation Favoring: Authority
for an Appropriation In the
JTeiv City Charter.
The truetees of the Chamber of Com
merce voted yesterday to push the project
of building a flreboat. A petition will
fce sent to the Multnomah legislative dele
gation urging that the city be authorized
to bu(M the tooat. The suggestion of the
Oregon Worn el's "Flax Fiber Association
that the state provide a plant 'In one of
the state Institutions fr the manufacture
of grain sacks, twine and other coarse
goods from flax was indorsed.
Assistant Secretary Hasten read the fol
lowing report on the purehase of a fire
boat: Portland, Jan. 10, 1600 The manager of the
board of underwriters ot the Pacific district.
I ds S. Otny, has written to the Chamber of
Conuaerce that "a flreboat is of vital Import
ance, and no city in the United States of the
eize of Portland -with a water front such as
we have is without this class of protection.
The benefits to be derived from a flreboat are
znaaifote, as, besides protection afforded to
manufacturing- interests and large docks, some
of which are without any protection whateer
from Are at this day, the shipping Interests
are absolutely without any mode of protection.
"The matter has bad the careful considera
tion of the executive committee in San Fran
clsoe, and I am authorized to stato that all
property under proper Are protection in this
city will receive a benefit over existing rates
by a reduction of from 10 to 15 per cent, ac
cordtBg to the class and location of property
protected. Reductions of these figures will re
sult in the annual saving to property-owners
of between $90,000 and $85,000. These reduc
tions will apply to the entire dwelling section,
as well as on other parts of the city.
"As the last additions to the equipment of
the Portland Fire Deparment were made soma
10 years ago, the city has largely outgrown
the equipment, owing to Its extensive growth
In that time, the large number of the build
ings that have been erected in the business
section, besides the establishments of magni
tude that have been placed on the river front
within the past two years. In giving this mat
ter attention, the probable conditions of the
river front a few years hence should be care
fully considered, particularly as a serious fire
in this locality would endanger almost the en
Since the present city charter gives the
Fire Commissioners no power to make
on approbation for a flreboat, the Cham
ber of Commerce considers that the only
way to secure relief is by legislative
action. Since the assurance has been
given that the benefits from reduction of
Insurance rates will extend to all parts
of the city, as far east as Sunnyside,
south as far as Carruthers street, west
In some parts as far as' Twenty-seventh,
and north to Upshur or "Weldler, a peti
tion will be circulated for signatures.
The proposed flax plant for a state in
stitution was brought before the trustees
by a letter from Mrs. H. L. Pittock, pres
ident of the Oregon "Women's Flax Fiber
Association, stating that the association
had worked for the past four years to
promote the flax Industry and had demon
strated that no better flax could be grown
anywhere. Linens of all grades, from
grain sacks to table linens, had been
woven from Oregon flax. Financially, the
association Is not able to continue the
work, and It was desired that the state
should co-operate. A bill will be intro
duced in the Legislature asking that the
state buy the plant and materials of the
association and place It in a state insti
tution, preferably the penitentiary, whore
coarse and useful goods could be manu
factured from the flax grown by the farm
ers. The desired Indorsement was given.
Proposed amendments to the interstate
commerce law, giving the commission
greater powor, were discussed and referred
to President Hahn, with power to act.
A motion for an advertising committee
of five to publish information concerning
the resources of various sections of Ore
gon, was carried, and a membership com
mittee .of three was authorized. These
will bo announced by President Hahn.

SAWDUST AND SPORTSMEN.
Held Responsible for Scarcity of
Fish and Game.
KLAMATH FALLS, Jan. 20. (To the
Editor.) I noticed an article in The Ore
gonlan of January 13, In which the writer
states, among other things, that the peo
ple of Eastern Oregon are in favor of a
prohibitory law In regard to the killing
and selling of deer, ducks and other wild
Now, I have lived in Southeastern Ore
gon for over 20 years, and have not only
hunted for both pleasure and market
during that time, but have also been with
a great many prominent people from out
side points. For the real sentiment of
the people of the eastern part of our state
I would call your attention to an article
entitled, "Hints to the Legislature," In
your Issue of December 23, 1900. In regard
to shortening the season it would be bet
ter to make the duck law, from October
1 to March 1, and leave the deer law"
alone as It is now.
I would recommend that the Fish Com
missioner's attention be especially called
to the violation of the fish laws all over
the state by mill companies, mainly by
the sawmlls. In the Klamath River
millions of small trout are annually killed
by sawdust, also great numbers of larger
fish, while so-called sportsmen from the
large and small cities west of the Cas
cades catch tons of fine fish and kill
thousands of ducks during the closed sea
son, mainly during the months of July
I have seen Portland sportsmen (?)
shoot young canvasbacks and mallards
that were unable to rise off the water,
and call that sport; while later these
same fine gentlemen growl both loud and
deep because ducks are killed for market,
and they blame the market-hunter for
this scarcity that they were the main
cause in creating. Yours truly.

County Game and Forestry Warden.

EAST SIDE NEWS.
Biff Demand for Cottages of Moder
On the East Side cottages of five and
six rooms are in great demand. The
foundations of two new cottages for Mrs.
Dalton have been started on East Pine
and Bast Eighth. The contractor says
GO persons have inquired of him when
the dwellings will be completed. A builder
says that there is more profit In small
houses than in large ones. The small
cottages command $15 and $18. Many
dwellings were, put up last year for
rent, but the demand was only partly
met. An East Side real estate man said
yesterday that he was sure he could
rent 10-3 houses of moderate size and price
In a few days.
Attempt to Bnrfirlnrlzo St. Paul's
An attempt was made to burglarize
the St- Paul German Lutheran church.
East Twelfth and Clinton streets, during
the absence of Rev. "August Krause, the
pastor, at Salem, Sunday and Monday.
It was discovered yesterday that the
church had been entered. A ladder was
taken from a cottage under construction
in the rear of the church and placed
against the wall so that the window
opening In the auditorium could be
reached. The auditorium and basement
were thoroughly ransacked, but the bur
glars got nothing of value. Since the
silver communion set was stolen a year
ago nothing of value Is left In the

A. J. Johnson, Government Forestry
Expert, returned from Washington, D.
C, yesterday. Ho visited the Pan-American
Exposition at Buffalo with Commis
sioners Bosch and Tlfft to select space
for the Oregon exhibits. From there he
went to Washington to assist in compiling
the forestry report, on which he has been
at work for two years, and to go over the
copy of the report and the map which
has been made by the Geological Survey.
This map was completed and ready for the
engravers before Mr. Johnson left Wash
ington, and will soon be In the hands
of the printers. Henry Gannett, chief
geographer of the survey, was highly
pleased with the completeness of the re
port, and especially of the map on which
he heartily congratulated Mr. John
son, pronouncing it the most instructive
map of the kind that had ever been made
by the department. He promised to have
a special copy of this map ready for the
opening of tne Pan-American Exposition,
to be used In Oregon's forestry exhibit.
Mr. Johnson had an enjoyable time in
Washington, and was treated royally by
different departments. From Washing
ton he went to New York, and spent
foun days visiting friends connected with
the Botanical Gardens and Museum of
Natural History. He came back by way
of Washington and Chicago, spending a
day In the Columbia Museum, which was
formed of the relics of the world's fair.
The curator of this museum was one of
Mr. Johnson's friend In the world's fair,
and he showed him everything In the In
stitution. I'he world's fair grounds, Mr.
Johnson says, have undergone a complete
transformation and have become a beau
tiful park. Tho only thing left as a re
minder of the great fair is this museum.
It is in the Fine Arts building.
From Chicago Mr. Johnson went to St.
Paul and Minneapolis to collect Informa
tion of the lumbering Interests of that
seotion. As the Mississippi was frozen,
all the mills were shut down, and Mr.
Johnson found nothing but the piles of
lumber and slabwood, which proved the
most interesting thing he saw, as ex
hibiting the difference in the slabs of the
East and the Pacific Coast. He says he
could easily put a dozen pieces of slab
wood In his overcoat pocket, as none of
them was more than two inches wide.
It often takes two men to handle one cut
of a Pacific Coasit slab. He says the
Eastern men would make fortunes out of
tho slabs of the Pacific Coast if they had
thorn to saw, as the wasted material here
Is more than equal to the sawlogs of tho
Bast. He saw sawlocs broucht In on
cars loaded across the cars little saplings
that the Western farmers would turn up
their noses at If they had to use them for
Mr. Johnson intends to show the East
ern people at the Pan-American Exposi
tion the difference between the sawlogs
of the West and the East provided that
the Oregon Legislature will make an ap
propriation that will enable Oregon to
be placed at the front In the coming ex
position at Buffalo. This exposition will
be one of the grandest ever held In any
country, and will certainly be a success
on account of " the immense population
within a few hours' travel. Oregon should
not fall to embrace the opportunity af
forded to ma&e the best display possible
of all Its wonderful natural resources.
Buffalo is one of the best laid out, clean
est and most attractive cities in the
United States. The streets are kept as
clean as can be, the buildings are all
bright and clean, and in fact, the whole
city looks as If it had been polished
for the occasion, but Mr. Johnson learned
that this is the normal appearance of the
Mr. Johnson, is anxiously waiting for the
decision of the Lagislature before start
ing in on the active work of preparing
his exhibit. Ho hopes tho decision will
be reached before long, as there is much
work to be done in collecting exhibits. It
also requires considerable time to trans
port exhibits so far, and time also for
arranging and completing the exhibit for
the opening of the exposition.

Mr. J. Haskins Smith, principal of the
Eugene Field School, Rogers Park, Chi
cago, is a recent purchaser of the Home
Study Circle Library.
"I regard it," says Mr. Smith, "as the
most valuable and practical work of
its nature published."
And if there is one volume of the fif
teen more practical than the others it is
that devoted to mathematics.
"This book Is essentially practical,"
is the opening sentence of the preface.
.It "covers a pretty wide field, and no
young man can master it without finding
himself greatly benefited that is to say,
greatly strengthened and armored for
the battle of life."
"Mathematics," says -Arbuthnot,
"charms the passions, restrains the im
petuosity of imagination and purges the
mind from error and prejudice."
What a treasury of knowledge Is
our matchless, many-sided Library.
Whatever volume of the fifteen you look
into, it seems as though you find right
there a value so distinct and practical as
to be worth to you the price of the en
Consider, for example, this mathe
matics volume. Many older people, to
be sure, who long ago received a thor
ough mathematical training, are content
to find delight in other volumes of the
set those on literature, science, art or
musk and to let the younger members
of the family train their faculties in
mathematics; but for teachers and for
students, for clerks, stenographers, me
chanics, draughtsmen in fact, for all
young men and women its genuine
worth can scarcely be exaggerated. If
you want to take a straight, cut to
promotion, master this mathematics
Science, literature, music, art,
governments, history, business, are
also dealt with in this thorough-going
practical Library. The titles below will
tell you something more about it.
You get the entire Library upon
making a small first payment, the
balance payable at your convenience
