Contribution From E. AV. Itotve.
The following letter from Superintend
ent E. W. Rowe, of the recent Portland
Carnival and Exposition, was read:
Portland, Or., Nov. 7, 1001. Hon. H. W.
Corbett, Portland, Or. My Dear air: I take
pleasure in subscribing to 45 shares of the
capital stock of tho Lewis and Clark Expo
sition. The par value of these shares, which
is $430, la the full amount of my compensa
tion as superintendent of the Portland Car-
,nial, held at the Exposition building and
on Multnomah Field In the months of Sep
tember and October. My salary as superin
tendent of the Carnival came from the people
of Portland, and I desire to return the
amount. to them and to have it deoted to a
purpose that will be prodUcthe of the great
est amount of good to the entire Pacific North
west. Yours respectfully, E. W. ROWE.
This letter was received with a round of
Form of Subscription.
The form of subscription heading to be
signed by those taking stock In the cor
poration for the celebration- of 1905 was
then taken up and the secretary read the
following, which had been prepared by
P. L. Willis:
.We, the undersigned, do hereby subscribe
for the number set opposite our respective
names, below, of shares of the capital Aock
of "Lewis and Clark Centennial and Ameri
can Pacific Exposition and Oriental Fair," a
corporation of Portland, Or., and hereby agree
with each other, and with said corporation.
that we will take said shares so subscribed
for, and pay said corporation therefor, at
such time or times as such payment shall be
required by its directors.
The capital stock of said corporation is
$300,000 and is divided into 30,000 shares of
The blank below this heading is divided
Into three columns, the first of which will
contain -the names of subscribers, the
second the number of shares of stock sub
scribed for and the third the par value
of the subscription. On the particular pa
per In the hands of the secretary there
loomed the subscription of Mr. Corbett
for 3000 shares of stock, of the par value
of $20,000, the only condition belnc that
frlaTflffHmftii r iHFrwrir '
all the $300,000 of stock should be taken.
Applause greeted the reading of this sub
scription. Alex Sweek said he thought the heading
for the subscriptions should contain a
waiver of notice for the first meeting,
as it would be Inconvenient to be com
pelled to go through the regular statutory
forms In calling a meeting for organiza
tion. Mr. Willis did not think a waiver
necessary, and If it were necessary, he
said, It should be on a separate paper.
But It would take some time to get all
the stock subscribed, and ample notice
should be given of the first stockholders'
meeting without wasting any time-.
H. C. Breeden Converted.
H. C Breeden, who has been well known
as an opponent of the Lewis and Clark
celebration project, took the floor and
everybody was Instantly Interested In.
what he should say. Said he:
It is well known in this community that I
have been opposed to the Lewis and Clark
Centennial celebration, for reasons that I have
often -expressed. But now that it has reached
the point where the people of the City of
Portland and Qf the whole Pacific Northwest
think it fitting? and proper that there should
be a celebration here of thl3 great historical
event, I think it time that every man, woman
and child in Portland. I might say in the
entire state, shpuld be In faor of It and In
every way aid it to final success, which can
only be achieved by union of forces and
hearty co-operation in all the plans that may
be formulated. The citizens of Portland
should set an example and leave no lingering
doubt as to the financial support the celebra
tion will receive here. Nothing succeeds like
success, and if the committee shall succeed in
securing all the subscription to stock in a
brief space of time, U will have a great in
fluence upon all the people from whom the
enterprise should draw support. Portland has
the reputation of being conservative in all
things, and it should maintain this reputation
by keening Us, plans for this celebration with
in the bounds of its financial strensth. In
other words, we should profit by the ex
perience of Buffalo in order that we shall not
find ourselvca in debt at the end of the 1003
celebration. The direct benefits that this
city and tho whole Pacific Northwest will
derive from tho great fair will be many and
Important. It will call the attention of all
civilized people to this part of the world and
they will want to examine this great and
growing country. To show my faith by my
work, I will subscribe for B0 shares of the
stock of the corporation.
A few minutes later Mr. Breeden be
came convinced that he could afford to
support the Institution more liberally, and
when he came to Inscribe his namCon the
subscription list it was for 100 shares of a
par value of. $1000.
This convert to the cause of the Lewis
and Clark celebration received a warm
Manner of Canvassing.
The manner of going after the subscrip
tions was discussed to some extent. Gen
eral Summers thought that when it should
come to the actual work of soliciting
subscriptions the committee would need
be three times as large as It Is. It was
evident, he said, that many outside the
committee must take hold and do hard
work. He thought the local canvass
could be completed within two weeks,
but there would be delay in closing with
corporations having non-resident officers,
who must be consulted. It was likely, he
said, that when the books should be
closed It would be found that the total
of local subscriptions would bo nearer
$500,000 than $3C0,0J0. Chairman Corbett
said the executive committee expected to
appoint others to aid It In taking the sub
scriptions, but the members of the com
mittee would do as much o the work
as should be found practicable; the com
mittee had been selected with this end In
"We must employ some degree of policy
about the matter, too," said General Sum
mers. "We all know that some people can
deal with certain people better than
others can, and we should arrange so
that our efforts will not be misapplied."
W. L. Boise asked the members of the
executive committee to give thought to
plans for taking the subscriptions so as
to be ready with suggestions at the meet
ing held tomorrow. He deemed it de
sirable that a list of all those likely to
subscribe large sums, say $1000 or more,
be made, and thaf the Influential mem
bers of the committee see those people
and get their subscriptions before the
miscellaneous canvass should be begun.
That would get the leaders In the com
munity headed In the right way, he said,
and then there would be no excuse for
the smaller ones to hold out and wait
to sec what the "big fellows" would do.
A. H. Devers said the executive com
mittee should set a good example, and
that the members should attend the
meeting tomorrow prepared to make their
subscriptions to the stock corporation.
"This Is no common affair," said he. "We
have never undertaken such a celebration
before, and we never shall again. The
occasion Is extraordinary, and we must
make extraordinary subscriptions. Every
member ought to come prepared tomor
The meeting adjourned subject to call
ofthe chair when It should be time to
organize the corporation.

400 prisoners from the Federal prison, in
charge of 30 armed guards, were at work.
When tho trouble began the rebellious

The prisoners then made a rush for the

In escaping. Most of the escaped men
are from Indian Territory. Closely fol

F. E. Hinds, superintendent of construc

of the fugitives, who has but 15 months
more to serve, deserted the band a few
moments after Superintendent Hinds was
released. The two men reached hero
almost at the same time. They reported
that tho fugitives, after holding a con
sultation, decided that they would form
themselves Into several small parties, so
that some might escape though others
should be captured. It Is the Intention
of all of them to attempt to reach the
rough country southeast of here.
Twenty-four members of the Fourth
Cavalry hastened to the scene of the
trouble, but when they arrived the con

to the brigands' proposition, as formu

stood that an agreement as to the amount
of the ransom has been virtually estab

and place of payment and the surrender
of the captives presents the most diffi

The brigands are not willing to cross Into

account of the premature disclosure of

8CARGITY OF BEEF
a Few Years Only the
Wealthy Can Buy It,
SO SAY WESTERN STOCKMEN
Alnrmlnpr Situation Due to the Over
crowding: of the Ranges Cou
grefx Will Be Aakcd to Make
an Early Investigation.
CHICAGO. Nov. 7. According to Infor
mation received at the headquarters of
Vc.t National Livestock Association in this
city. Congress will have the Western
public land situation brought to its atten
tion this Winter In a new and startling
manner. A number of prominent cattie
me of the West, who have been quietly
Investigating, are prepared to show that
during the past five years there has ben
an enormous decrease in the number of
! cattle in this country, a decrease which
seriously threatens the beef food suppi.
and that, unless? speedy action be taken by
Congress, in the course of a very few
years beef will be selling at such fabu
lous prices that enly the wealthy can
afford to indulge In the luxury of a bet r.
The cause of this rapid decline in the
number of beef cattle Is said to be due
solely to the contraction of the Western
public grazing land; and the Increase In
the consumptive demand. The rapid set
tlement of the West Tuis caused the ranges
left to become crowded, and thi3 crowded
condition has prevented the reseeding of
grasses, and consequently millions of
acres of once good pasture have been
turned into absolute desert. Most of the
large herds have been dispersed and
slaughtered, and the bulk of the cattle
supply la now being furnished by the
small stockmen, but the evolution from
the large herds on t!e open range to the
small herds In pastures is too slow, owlrg
to unfavorable land conditions, and where
a few years ago the market! were sup
plied with cattle four, five and six years
old, even yearlings are being slaughtered
to make up the supply of ueef.
The cUockmen assert that the unfavora
ble methods of administering the pub.ic
lands of the West are back of the threat
ened shortage, and at the coming National
convention In Chicago next month an ef
fort will be made to throw the who4?
matter Into Congress and ask that a com.
mission bo appointed with expert assist
ance to investigate and devise plans for
relieving the situation. The stockmen In
the National Association have been
striving for years to devise some plan for
amending the land laws that would rem
edy existing evils, but have been unable
to agree. One faction is in favor of leas
ing the lands by the Government: another
wants the lands ceded to the states, and"
another wants the Irws left as they are
and irrigation, work continued to redeem
As a compromise for all. it is now pro
posed to have Congress take charge of the
Whole matter through a commissipn, and,
after Investigation, take such action aa
will tend to stop the waste and destruc
tion now going on. and encourage the
establishment of small 3tock farms. Tho
plan will also recommend Government
aid in building storage reservoirs on the
ranges near headwaters of streams.
The big packers admit that there has
been a decrease in the visible supply of
cattle during the past five years, and
they are lookirg forward to highef prices
In the near future. They say the people
will be forced to eat mutton Instead of
beef, tlough even mutton will probably
become scarce later, as the same condi
tions that are diminishing the beef sup
ply will also aftect the sheep supply.
