and It Is printed on enameled book paper. It
mill be mailed to any address In the United
States or Canada, for 1 cents a copy.
Worked ik Spite on Downpour. Even
the oldest Oregonians admitted cheerfully
that It rained heavily for a short time yes
terday forenoon, -when for about half an
hour It came down at the rate of 18 Inch
es In 24 hours. In the midst of this down
pour one of the fellows who go around
armed with short-handled axes, to split
wood, was seen working away calmly and
composedly on a small pile of wood on
Alder street, near Sixth. Two of his com
itltors In business stood under an aw
".g and watched him with surprise. Half
the wood he split was carried away by
the river which raced down the gutter,
but he ,pald no attention to it probably
thought this would save him the trouble
of carrying it. A passer stopped to ask:
the competitors what was the matter with
the man, and was told that he was so wet
Inside and out that a little rain more or
less made no difference. An hour or two
later the fellow was seen entering a Chi
nese gin mill, where he probably pro
cured something that dried his clothes
on him in a Jiffy.

How Howe Sized Up Houses. An elder
ly man named "William Howe was in the
Municipal Court yesterday, charged with
vagrancy, and he pleaded not guilty. "I
arrested Howe around Twenty-first and
Qulmby streets, early in the morning. He
was apparently sizing up houses, as it
he wished to go Inside," testified Police
man Welch. Howe admitted that he had
not worked for several weeks, and that
the last money he had was realized from
the sale of a blanket he carried. He
asked to be allowed to leave town, so
that he could get to "Vancouver. "We will
have no objection. You are a bad man
to have around this town," said Munici
pal Judge Cameron. The case was con
tinued. Inquires for Missing Friends letters
arc constantly being received by Post
master Croasman from persons in all parts
of the country, inquiring after lost or
long-absent friends. Every reasonable ef
fort is made to furnish the desired infor
mation. Mr. Croasman has now on hand
a letter from a woman In Cambridge,
Mass., inquiring for one Edward Dill, her
iiepbew, and one from a boy in Ottawa,
III., inquiring for his father, William H.
Cline. These parties were residents of
this city a number of years ago, but have
not been beard from in a long time. Any
one knowing the whereabouts of either
of them will confer a favor by informing
Postmaster Croasman thereof.

CONSIDER STARCH - MAKING
Manufacturer' AsocIatlon Receives
Proposals From Factories.
At a fully attended meeting of the board
of directors of the Manufacturers' As
sociation last night. Secretary Mclsaac
read a letter from Charles F. E. Vos3, of
Portland, concerning the establishment of
a starch factory. The talk ran Into dis
cussion of the merits of coast-made
starch, and Directors Devers, Ganten
beir, Kelleher and others made brief re
marks. It was the opinion of several
members that the starch made by Mr.
"Voss gave the best satisfaction for laun
dry purposes, and the matter will be con-,
The JPacllic Starch Company, of Jack
son, Mich., signified In a letter Its lnten
tlonof removing its factory to Oregon,
if sufficient encouragement were offered.
Starch,, the letter stated, may be pro
duced in the Pacific Northwest at less
than one-third the cost to the Michigan
manufacturers, while the charge for the
product In this city la 60 per cent greater

BALL'S MEN TAKE MEDALS
ScrafcfemeR Lone la Mwltnemak
Ball's team came to the rescue and
took the medals away from the scratch
men, who had won them for the past two
weeks, in the weekly bowliag contest at
the Multnomah Club this week. Six teams
contested for the medals three- on Mon
day night and three last evening. On
Monday night Ball's team gave an "ex
hibition" on the unused alley. Beck was
put in to fill Zellers place, and he showed
the others how bowling should be done.
With all his high score the "exhibition"
team could not bowl more than 61L Ab
endroth greatly helped to get that score
by his 129.
On Monday night tho scratch men fin
ished up with 6S5. But that did not worry
them. They had become so used to win
ning by GS0 scores that they thought they
had a cinch. SIgler fell down, or they
might have made 700. Brigham's team
captured second place for the night, with
PIttock as high man. Leadbettcr was
back on the alleys, and put up a fair
game. Craft, who recently very grace
fully resigned from the scratch team,
was high man on his team, but his high
ness did not reach to the skies, and the
team finished in third place.
The Tuesday nlghters'were determined
that the medals would not be given up
to a score like 6S3. But Ball's team was
the only one to beat the score. Tho others
tried, but "before the finished they had
to tell some hard-luck story. Ball was
the star bowler of the tournament, bowl
ing good games throughout. His men
gave him good support. The "alley
pounders," with Churchman at the top
of the bunch, fell into second place.
Holmes' team came out at the bottom.
Holmes made a couple of GO scores and
finished on top. They say that he had
strings on the pins, and when his ball
went down the alley the boy In the pit
would pull the pins over. At any rate,
it is quite certain that he made some
very shady strikes. Ford sailed along
nicely until the final game. He made 59
in the third, but when the fourth came
his big score had either turned his head
or else he was Jealous of Holmes and he
made but 15.

MANY VOTERS REGISTER
ELECTORS HASTEX TO LINE- UP AT
COUXTY CLERK'S OFFICE.
Wonld-Be-BcBcdlct Get Registered
When He Think He Is Getting
The registration of voters at the Coun
ty Clerk's office Is proceeding rapidly.
Yesterday the total number registered
was 174. Several applicants were reject
ed, and their cases will be submitted to
the District Attorney for a legal opinion.
One man came here with his mother,
was was a widow, when he was 11 years
old, from Europe. He has lived here
ever since a period of 30 years and
never took out any naturalization papers.
His mother married a citizen, but this
occurred after the son was of legal age.
The man was informed that he is not a
citizen, but as he was permitted to reg
ister two years ago, the officials promised
to look Into the matter.
An amusing incident occurred in the af
ternoon. A young man called to obtain
a marriage license, and by mistake went
to the registration counter. The clerk.
John W. Paddock, immediately began to
fill out a registration blank, asking the
usual questions: "How old are you?
COUNTY COMMISSIONERS ASKED TO
NAME FAIR MEN.
With the object of insuring fairness in the conduct and count
in the coming primaries and election, there was presented to
the County Commissioners yesterday a list of six or seven
prominent citizens from each of the 70 precincts with the re
quest that one judge and one clerk be chosen from the list. This
action was taken and the recommendation made by leading
business men, and the men on the list are among the most
prominent and most representative business men of the city,
who are interested in the conduct of the coming primaries and
Where were you born? Where do you
live," etc The young man answered the
questions satisfactorily, and the blank,
after It had been filled out, "was handed
to him for his signature.
Noticing what it was, the would-be Ben
edict stammered out: "Why, I did not
come to get registered. I came for a
"What's that?" said Mr. Paddock;
"marriage license? Over at the other
counter," pointing the way, but before
the surprised young man had got well
started for the opposite side of the room
Mr. Paddock recovered himself and
called him back with the remark: "Well,
you had better sign your name here, and
then you will be registered. Kill two
birds at once. See? Thanks," remarked
Mr. Paddock as the blank was signed.
"No, there Isn't any charge."
The next move was to call the wit
ness who accompanied the young man
to come up and get registered, but he
said he did not have time to stay and
would call again some other day when
the boys were not so frisky, and when
he would not bo asked to set up the

CHINOOKS BRING RAIN.
Winds Also Canse Balmy Air sail
For two days past Portland and vicin
ity has been enjoying unusually wa;m
weather and growled at more than copi
ous rains. Both seemed unseasonable,
more particularly the former. There is
no trace of Winter in the atmosphere,
and while the East is snow-bound Oregon
Is blessed with balmy winds that awako
reminiscences of Southern California, the
land- of summery WTinter.
"Prevailing Chinook conditions" is the
explanation given by Forecast Official
Beals in accounting for the vagaries of
the weather. The term is an accepted
part of local meteorological vocabularies,
though to the Eastern observer It would
probably be meaningless. Expressed terse
ly, It is dynamically heated air, caused
by a compression of atmosphere, which
descends and produces heat.
The temperature yesterday ranged from
50 to 61 degrees, and from 4:30 A. M. to
6 P. M. .92 of an Inch rainfall had been
recorded, which was largely In excess of
the figures for the same time last year.
Monday the rainfall amounted to 32 of
an inch, and the temperatures were about
the same. Chinook winds come from the
ocean or over the mountains, and are al
ways warm, but do not of necessity bring
rain with them.
Forecaster Beals said yesterday that
Chinook winds had been recorded of suffi
cient dryness that a foot of snow had
been evaporated, leaving the ground ab
solutely dry. Another variety of the Chi
nook wind carries In Its wake an abun
dance of moisture, which is the sort that
is now present. Tho winds have been
unusually severe along the coast, and
southwest gales have raged, attaining a
velocity of from 20 to 40 miles an hour.
The condition has made it badfor ship
ping, the strong on-shore winds prevent
ing ships from leaving harbors.
A counterpart of the Chinook- winds is
to be found in Switzerland, where the
meteorological term is Froehn winds.
These gales blow over the Alps and de
scend Into the valleys laden with heat
and rain or exceptional dryness, as the
case may be.
Reports from stations on the lines of the
O. R. & N. Co. yesterday showed what
Colonel Crooks called "a most absurd
state of weather for January 7." In the
extensive triangle of which the points are
Portland, Huntington and Spokane the
lowed temperature recorded at 3 P. M.
was 47 degrees, at North Powder. The
highest temperature was 70 degrees, at
Umatilla. It was cloudy at both places.
At Heppner the mercury stood at 64, at
Walla Walla 63, and at Pomeroy and
Oakesdale GO. This Is believed to be the.
warmest January 7 on record for that
region, though there are no satisfactory
records for comparison.
On the line of the Southern Pacific It
was also warm and very wet, but the
temperature there was not so notable as
that east of the Cascades.

come and Membership.
The outgoing trustees of the Chamber of
Commerce 'held their final meeting yes
terday morning, all members present.
President Hahn presiding. The annual
reports of President Hahn, Secretary
Fleischner and Chairman Lewis, of tne
transportation committee, were consid
ered. They are very favorable, showing
a probable Income from all sources this
year of over J6000. These will be read at
the annual meeting in the rooms of the
Commercial Club, on the eighth floor of
tho Chamber of Commerce building at 8
o'clock tonight. The board also adopted
the recommendaUons of the nominating
committee for officers and trustees, to be
voted upon at tonight's meeting, when the
names will be made public. They will be
printed In ballot form, with a note saying
that members arc not bound to the nom
inees and may make any other nomina
tions they choose.
Among other matters considered was a
letter from E. P. Bacon, of Milwaukee,
Wis., chairman of the executive commit
tee of the Interstate Commerce Law Con
vention. The chamber recently Instructed
the Oregon members of Congress to assist
In the passage of amendments to the In
terstate commerce law only so far as the
Pacific Coast is benefited, and to insist
upon the division of the country into five
geographical sections from which appoint
ments to the commission are to be made.
Mr. Bacon said the Idea of districts strikes
him as being very desirable, so far as It
might relate to future appointments aris
ing from death or resignation. The Inter
state Commerce Commission Is now con
trolled by the Atlantic seaboard and the
Middle West, and the Pacific Coast, hav
ing no representation, and the chamber
will not under any condition recede from
its request to the Oregon delegation to
watch the bill and see to It that the Inter
ests of the Pacific Coast are protected.
The following 20 merchants were elected,
