THE MORNING OEEGONIAN, TUESDAY, JULY 9, 190T.
CITY NEWS IN BRIEF
CORDRAVS THEATER-Cummlngs Stock Co.
In "Mr. Bmcolu.'
METROPOLITAN THEATER "Down In
0jj Standard iliu Coluipses. The old
Standard flouring: mills building, at Mll
waukle, collapsed yesterday afternoon at
2 o'clock, after having stood for nearly
half a century. For several years Its
foundation has been insecure, and its
fall had been expected. It went over with
a. crash. The collapse was witnessed by
a large number of people at Mllwaukle.
It was one of the landmarks of the state.
The mill was designed and built under the
supervision of Captain Joseph Kellogg in
pioneer days, and at that time It was the
best mill in the state. All through the
mines of Idaho and Eastern Oregon the
Standard brand of flour was the popular
brand, The burrs used were among the
first brought to this Coast. For a great
many years the building has been Idle and
cobwebs and dust were many inches thick.
It was explored before the machinery andn
old Iron were removed, and it was found
Just as it was when the water had been
turned off and the mill stopped. It was
packed full of curious things, a veritable
relic of the past The old frame simply
swung over into the water, and had not
floated away yesterday. There is no dan
ger that it will float down the river and
wreck the bridges.
Manj Took Examinations. A civil
service examination was held yestrday by
local examiners, Messrs. Barnes, Ralston
and Keady, at the T. M. C. A. rooms, for
the examination of applicants who desired
to show their capability and establish their
eligibility to fill positions in the United
States customs service In this district,
appll cants to the number ot 52, Including
a woman, and a man from Nebraska, pre
sented themselves and spent five and a
half happy hours in filling In answers to
questions on half a dozen blanks. There
were examinations In spelling, arithmetic,
letter-writing, penmanship, copying and
geography, and the blanks filled made a
large bundle which will be sent to Wash
ington. When it Is understood that there
are only about 25 positions In the custom?
service in this district, and they are all
filled by persons appointed for life under
civil service rules. It may surprise some
that the list of applicants for examination
was so large. It Is, however, generally
supposed that when the new Customs
House is completed the number of em
ployes will be increased.
Bids for First Street Repairs.
Prospects appear to be promising for
much-needed repairs being made to the
pavement on the right of way of the
street railway on First street, within a
reasonable time. The Portland Railway
Company, Portland City & Oregon Rail
way Company and the City & Suburban
Railway Company, all of whom are in
terested in this right of way, have jointly
advertised for bids for making the neces
sary repairs from Burnslde to Stark street,
in accordance with the plans and speci
fications prepared therefor by the City
Engineer. A certified check must ac
company each bid, and a bond be given
for the proper performance of the work.
The bids are to be opened at the City
Engineer's office at 2 o'clock' this after
noon. No time Is specified within which
,the work is to be commenced or completed,
but It is to be presumed that It will be
Addition to Courthouse. An addition
to the Courthouse is to be erected in the
vacant space in the middle of the block
on the Main-street (south) side of the
building, In order to afford more space
for the County Clerk. It will connect with
the rooms at present occupied by the
Clerk. The plans have been prepared and
the work will be commenced as soon as
the contract is let. The cost will be $3000
or less. There will be S. door leading to
the street on the Main-street side, which
will be used for the registration of voters
when registration is in progress, and will
otherwise prove an accommodation in
various ways. The Clerk has been crowded
for room for a long time, and additional
burdens placed upon the office by succes.
Blve Legislatures have gradually Increased
the inconvenience until it has become im
possible to transact business expeditiously
and properly in the present cramped quar
ters. Bridge Men Promoted. Harry Stuts
man, who has been engineer on the Burn-side-street
bridge since it was built, has
resigned to accept from the O. R. & N.
Company the position of superintendent
of the steel bridge, made vacant by the
death of Calvin Follett. Yesterday the
County Commissioners appointed W. E.
Wilkinson, assistant engineer of the Burn,
side-street bridge, to the place formerly
occupied by Mr. Stutsman, and appointed
E. B. Hayden to succeed Wilkinson. The
Commissioners have decided to adopt the
system of promotion whenever It can be
done with advantage to the service. Mr.
Stutsman is a competent engineer, and Is
a man of the utmost reliability. Before
his employment on the bridge he was for
a number of years an engineer in the fire
department on the East Side.
Rude Guardsmen. A complaint has
been received from Molalla In regard to
rude and unprovoked conduct on the part
of a few members of one of the com
panies of the Third Regiment, while en
route to Wllholt. Of course no one will
hold the company responsible for the con
duct of four or five stragglers bringing up
the rear. The charge Is that several
members of the company In uniforms,
straggling at the rear, Invaded the prem
ises of a family about a quarter of a
mile from Molalla Corners, climbed and
robbed cherry trees, injured shrubbery,
were rude to the women of the house
who were the only persons at home be
cause they did not furnish buttermilk for
them to drink, and were guilty of even
"worse breaches of decency. It Is probable
that the matter will be Investigated. ,
Hotel Gearhart, Clatsop Beach, will
open for the Summer season on Saturday,
July 13, under the management of S. O.
Hersey. The attractions of this popular
Summer resort are well known. The golt

Northwest has just been published. It

union, a list of the members, numbering
15S, and their places of residence; also a

Bruce, of Salem, was severely Injured
about the head by falling down the ele
vator well at the Hotel Belvedere, last
Sunday, and was taken to the Goo'd Sa
mailtan Hospital, where his injuries were
dressed. He will probably be kept at the
hospital for lour or five dajs.
Not From Senator Brownell. In an
article on candidates for Supreme Judge
in yesterday's Oregonlan, the statement
was made: "There appears to be no
ground for the report that Senator George
C. Brownell, of Clackamas County, would
like to see the ermine on the shoulders of
County Judge T. F. Ryan, of Oregon
City." Some persons at Oregon City pro
fess to think that the statement was in
spired by Senator Brownell. This Is not
so. The statement is part of the political
gossip of the times, and was published as
such. It did not come from the Clacka
mas County Senator.
Fell From a Boiler. Samuel E.
Phelps, of this city, first mate of the
steamer Northwest, lying at Salmon-street
wharf, was injured yesterday by falling

He said that wheels had been excluded,
by ordinance, and yet life was in danger
constantly, and no effort was made to
enforce flje ordinance. He had even
found a policeman on Mllwaukle street
telling the wheelmen that it was all
right to ride on the sidewalk. Mr. Seton
said that he had been dodging whizzing
wheels on the sidewalk so much that he
had acquired & hunted look, and was in
constant fear of being run in for a sus
picious character. He was sure the Sub
Board should take the matter in hand.
The question of sewerage for that end

Madden and D. M. Donaugh, of Sell
