day Teams Cannot Yet Use
East Side Approach.
Pedestrians commenced using Madlson
Etreet bridge yesterday, although the east
end Is still In an unflnlfihed condition.
Cars will be put In operation today. The
linemen were engaged yesterday In rewir
ing at the east end. Tracks have all been
laid, and it Is considered almost certain
that the cars of the Oregon Water Power
& Railway will run over the bridge on
schedule time.
The bridge la not open for teams and
will not be until the elevated roadway on
Hawthorne avenue has been repaired.
City Engineer Elliott is preparing esti
mates for rebuilding the roadway. There
Is urgent need for the early restoration
cl this roadway, not only for the accom
modation of the public, but for the relief
of the Morrison-street bridge, which Is
carrying double traffic
The public should bear in mind that
the bridge Is still In a very incomplete
condition, and all pedestrians should be
careful In crossing. Sidewalks are not
finished, and there are no barricades. The
roadway built by the Oregon Water Pow
er & Railway Company's double tracks
4s barely 18 feet wide, and with cars pass
ing and repassing there is sure to be con
siderable danger. By exercise of caution
Occidents -will be avoided.

petition to Build on Vancouver Ave.
nue From McMlllen. to RnsnelL.
1 A petition will bo circulated asking the
.County Court to build a bicycle path on
!Vancouver avenue to connect McMlllen
lend Russell streets. Vancouver avenue
jls to be Improved in a short time, and It
tts desired that this path should be built
'at tho time the street is graded. Author
ity for this path was given In the gen
feral bicycle ordinance which was passed
by the City Council a year ago, when a
'number of routes were selected on the
East and West Sides.
Authority is given to build a path on
Wheeler street and Vancouver avenue,
connecting with McMlllen street and ex
tending to the city limits. Vancouver
I avenue is to be improved at once to Rus
sell street, and as soon as it has been
made uniformly CO feet wide, north from
.Morris street, the Improvement will be
continued through to Alberta street. The
object Is to have a bicycle path built
straight along the avenue to the north
west corner of the Piedmont tract. The
Multnomah County Bicycle Association
-adopted this route through Alblna, after
careful consideration. It was decided
that a path should be built connecting
with the steel bridge and extending along
Vancouver avenue to connect with the
path already built. This route does away
with the steep hill on McMlllen street
and passes directly through the thickly
settled portion of Alblna and cuts through
the main streets. The petition asks for
construction of the path to Russell street
only for tho present.
PEARL OSBORX INJURED.
Wound Up in a Set-Scrovr in Stand
ard Box Factory Leg Gashed.
Pearl Osborn, tho 11-year-old son of C.
C. Osborn, who lives In Tabasco Addition,
met with a painful accident yesterday
morning while wdrklng in the Standard
Box Factory on East Water 6treet. The
boy was acting as off-bearer to one of
the machines in the factory. In some
way his trousers leg was caught by the
set-screw, which drew his leg into the
machine, and would probably have
crushed his leg off but for the prompt
efforts of the little fellow in pulling him
self away from the machine.
A gash an inch deep and seven Inches
long was made in the calf of his leg. Into
this the cloth of the trousers and sock
had been ground. His father, who also
works In the factory, with Mr. Woodcock,
carried the injured boy to the office of
Dr. Chambers, in the Logus building. It
was found that the wound had nearly
penetrated to the bone. The boy said
that after his leg caught he braced his
foot against a board and wrenched hlm
self,loose from tho whirling set-screw;
He was then put under tho influence of
an anesthetic while the wound was
dressed. The operation took an hour.
Twenty-five stitches were necessary. Af
Jterwards he was taken to his home. Dr.
Chambers said ho never 6aw a pluckier
boy.
Must Remove Street Obstructions.
Managers of Studebaker Bros., Buffalo
Pitts and tho Russell Company yesterday
wero requested to clear the elevated road-
Vways on Belmont and East Yamhill
streets, by Chief McLauchlan, and they
Jagreed to take steps to have this done
(at once. These two streets are occupied
with long lines of threshing machines,
traction engines and other agricultural
idmplements. Chief Campbell on investi
.gatIon found that in case of firo in this
-vicinity it would be almost impossible to
Uget the apparatus where it could be used.
'An engine or truck might be gotten
through the narrow space left, but there
would be danger of accidents.
Death of an Old Contractor.
Ezra St. John, aged 78 years, died Ttiura
"iaay evening in the Odd Fellows' Home,

'Hospital, where he was taken, that he
was getting along as well as could be ex
pected, but the extent of the injury to
his eyes could not be determined.

long line of carriages followed the hearse
to the cemetery. The funeral was attend
ed by delegations from Samaritan Lodge,
I. O. O. F., Knights of Pythias, Masons,
Foresters, A. O. U. W.. Woodmen, Women
of Woodcraft, and other societies which
Mr. Sears had been a member of. The

Past Grand Exalted Rulers of the Elks j
as follows: C. H. Clute, Alex Sweek. R.
W. Mitchell, H. D. Griffin. Louis Dam

At the grave of George C. Sears, al
though called upon on the spur of the
moment. Colonel R. W. Mitchell delivered
a short but fitting eulogy. In part he
said:
"Brothers and Friends: We have re
turned to Mother Earth an honest man.
He who lies there needs tm eulogy from
us. His life and career speak more elo
quently than anything we could say. Had
I the" tongue of Demosthenes, garnished
by the eloquence of Ingersoll, little could
I add to what In ict and deed he did
himself. The principles of our order he
revered. He was alert in charity, mixed
with a judgment that neither encouraged
the slothful nor turned away the unfortu
nate. He was a royal Elk, charged with
high resolves, and mingling in unison,
charity. Justice,, and brotherly love. Where
be will go, unless all elgns fall, every one
who knew him as I did will need no
surety.
"Sleep, brother, sleep. The vigil we
keep. And rest. The Great Exalted Ruler
decides It Is best. To "his will we lowly
bow. Great heart be still. It Is his will.
We will come one by one. Until then,
sleep on and rest. 'Tls best!"

JAPANESE TO PAY A VISIT
TEX STUDEXTS WIX.Ii ARRIVE "iX
PORTLAND JULY 24.
They Come From Private School at
OUayama, for the Purpose of
Studying American Customs.
A party of 10 Japanese students. ac
companied by the principal of their school
and an adviser, will arrive In Portland
about July 24. The expenses of this party
are paid by the school to which it be
longs, belnj, an experiment In higher edu
cation begun by this establishment last
May, when 15 students were sent on a
similar visit to Korea and China. This
school is located in Okiyama, a city
whose population on December 31, 1S8S,
numbered 58,025. The school Is a private
crterpp.v?, receiving a subsidy of only
$1250 per annum from the prcfectual gov
ernment In which It Is located. Its rank,
so far as study Is concerned. Is that of an
American high school. There Is also In
this City of Okiyama a public high school,
one of the best in Japan: besides the
grammar and primary schools. The pub
lic school system in Japan differs from
that' of the United States in that parents
who are able to do so pay for the educa-
PRIVATE SCHOOL AT OKAYAMA WHICH IS
2 Office. 3 Teachers' Rooms. 4
tlon of tholr children In proportion to
their wealth, the charges ranging from
15 cents to 0 cents per month, American
money, being somewhat less In the pri
mary grade and more in the high school.
But where the parents are very poor no
charge Is made, and books are supplied
free to those unable to purchase them.
Moreover, when pupils munlfest marked
intelligence In the grammar grades and
are too poor to pursue their studies at
their own expense, they are sent to the
high school not only free of charge but
are alf-o supplied with board and lodging
and clothing, and even a small money
allowance during their stay there; the
idea belngthat the country needs "the
best services of Its most Intelligent citi
zens and can well afford to do everything
posflblo to promote their highest devel
opment.
Tho step that this Okayama school Is
taking In sending some of its best stu
dents abroad during tho Summer vaca
tion, in order that they may acquire a
practical knowledge of the manners, cus
toms and Industries of foreign nations. Is
typical of the great efforts Japan Is mak
ing to secure the education of the rising
generation. In this private Okayama
high school there are 750 pupils, with 25
teachers. And it is to be presumed that
the public high school will have as many
more students. For a city of less than
C0.000 this Is a good record, especially
when It is considered that this private
high school Is exclusively for boys. When
It Is remembered that modern Japan dates
only from 1S6S. the strides the nation Is
making In education, as well as In other
directions. Is truly remarkable.
With a total population of less than 47,
009.000 on January 1. 1S99, Japan had on
December 31, 1900, 21.S6S students receiving
the hlghor (or college) education; 6334 of
whom were being educated at the public
expense, while 13,913 wero paying their
own way. v
In regard to education, below the col

The education of girls Is as yet in Its
Infancy, the number of boys In respect

higher grades, and somewhat less than
two to one In the primary and grammar
grades. The higher education of girls,
however. Is making rapid strides.
' MERCURY AT 93.
Hottest Day of Season Comes on
Schedule Time.
The "hot enough for you?" man was out
In full force yesterday. Inflicting his soul
slckenlng intorrogatlves upon the swelter
ing public The weather man evidently
desired to even things up for the cold
spell he ordered for the great and glor
ious Fourth of July. This he succeeded
in doing. The day was by far the hottest
of the season, and dealers of of hokey
pokey Ice cream and Summer beverages
reaped handsome- returns. At 3 A. M. the
thermometer stood at 61 degrees above
the zero mark, and an hour later It
had jumped up four notches. At S o'clock
there was a registration of 69 decrees,
and at 11 people began to perspire freely
and swear by jerks, for the mercury had
crawled up to the 0 mark. At high noon
three more degrees were added to the al
ready large supply of heat, and the
weather market was firm, with upward
tendencies. At 2 P. M. It was "awful
hot" at SI degrees, and an hour later the
silver-colored liquid In the weather man's
office was .still another notch to the good.
The highest point reached was 93 de
grees. This jevent occurred at 4 o'clock,
after which time there was a reaction,
and things began to get cooler. At G
o'clock, 92 degrees was announced, and by
9 the temperature had cooled down to SO.
After the shades of night had fallen,
people went to bed with open windows,
although matters had cooled down to the
72 mark by 10 o'clock. Cooler weather Is
predicted for today. .
MR. LUNSFORD AGAIN.
Frances WUIard Ranked Alongside
of. Mill and Spencer.
VANCOUVER. Wash., July 15. (To the
Editor.) Referring to comments on my
communication in today's Oregonlan, I
desire to say that It was not Intended to
accuec The Oregonlan of clcelng Its col
umns to prohibition argument, for. In
times past, it has been generous and lib
eral In that as It Is on all matters of
public Interest. At the same time The
Oregonlan Is "Inflexibly hostile" to the
prohibitory law; see editorial In Issue of
June 27, "Error Dies Among Its Wor
.shlpero," and but little If anything has
SENDING TEN STUDENTS TO
Exercise - Room tor Bad Weather. B Recltatlon-Rooms.
appeared In Its columns for the last year
or so in answer to Its frequent attacks
on the Intelligence and standing of the
advocates of prohibition. Such appella
tions as cranks, fools. Idiots and para
noics, have been freely applied to pro
hibitionists in general, while the designa
tion of articles written In a spirit of
Honesty and fairness, as Incumbrances,
betrays vlndlctlveness and prejudice to
a high degree.
In the editorial last mentioned, the
standing of Frances A. Wlllard and Lady
Somerset In the world of thought Is com
pared to Bryan, who Is designated as a
"transient political nuisance In distinction
to a statesman who by thought or deed
has made a deep mark." Permit me to
say that, measured by the influence for
good of humanity, the life work of these
noble women will probably be as great
as the profound reasoning of a Mill or a
Spencer.
The Oregonlan says gambling Is crime,
the use and eale of liquor Is not. Where
in lies the difference? Both are corrupt
ing the moral life of the nation, and
therein lies the crime and the Justification
of prohibition. Merely this and nothing
more. All the ranting nonsense about the
liberty of the Individual and the enact
ment of bumptuary laws, etc., is but
tho raucous cackle of tho Judas spirit
that would sell Its Lord for 30 pieces of
silver, and of the self-sufficient Individual
who, strong-willed and mighty In his own
mind, has no pity for his weaker brother,
and selfishly takes no thought for any
thing beyond his own material comfort.
Yes, gambling In all its gradations,
from the millionaire stock gambler down
to the Ignorant negro qrap-shooter, is a
crime, made so by Its degrading Influence
as a whole on the moral life of society,
and not by any one particular form or
set. But Infinitely more. It seems to me,
Is It a crime for the state to license and
reap a profit from a thing that Is the
source of more human misery and unhap
plness than all else combined. Is the
sale and use of liquor a crime? Unless
one can conscientiously declare that Its
effects on the welfare of the people as a
whole are more beneficial than harmful,
they must admit that it Is; and If a
crime, then the principle of prohibition
Is right, regardletM of whether or not It
Is practical under present conditions,
which Is another question.
The position of The Oregonlan that It Is
a gain for decency to force vice out of
sight. In that it does away with the
power of suggestion carried to the minds
of the young. Is correct, and the same
principle has resulted, according to Gov
ernor Stanley, of Kansas, In thousands
of young men growing to manhood In
that state without ever having known
the taste of liquor or seeing a saloon. If
the decrease of crime and the Increase of
savings reported from the states where
the prohibition law has been tried though
Imperfectly enforced Is any Indication of
what good results would come from a
perfect enforcement of the law. It would
Indeed be a blessing for humanity If It
were made universal.

TO COLLECT BICYCLE TAX
SHERIFF ORDERED XOT TO RE
LEASE CONFISCATED "WHEELS".
County Court Decides That Law Shall
Be Enforced and That "Warrants
Are Xot Xceded.
The County Court yesterday notified
Sheriff Storey not to release any bicycle
seized for nonpayment of the bicycle tax
until the tax of U and the penalty of
51 (50 has been paid In full. The Sheriff
was in doubt as to whether, having seized
the wheels without a warrant, having
first been Issued, he could hold them.
Judge Webster stated that the persons
violated the law In riding up the paths
when they had no license, and the Sheriff
could merely seize the wheels again, as
be Is now duly authorized to do. In ex
planation the court said further: "These
people were guilty of riding on these
paths without license tags, and they
should be made to pay the penalty. We
have built these paths for their special
benefit, and If they desire to use them
they ought to be willing to pay the 51
per year license that Is Imposed. It costs
money to build these paths and keep
PORTLAND
them In condition, and the law must be
enforced.
"Tne deputy who stopped a man on the
path and was fined for acting In accord
ance with Instructions, will not be obliged
to pay the fine himself. There seems to
be little doubt that the former court Is
sued the warrant to the Sheriff, but
through some slip It was not placed on
record. This has been fully remedied
and the work of watching the paths will
be continued.'
The man who caused the arrest of this
deputy, It is reported, has threatened to
sue the county for 510,000 damages.
There arc at present over 20 bicycles on
hand. If not rcdeemedf within a certain
length of time, the law provides that
they may be sold.

FIRES SERIOUS IN RUSSIA
No Electric Alarms Fireman "Watch
es in a Tower to See Blaze.
New York Sun.
When a fire occurs in St. Petersburg the
nearest citizen doesn't step to a red box
and ring In an alarm for the engines by
electricity. They haven't advanced so far
yet. The Russian system of spreading
news of a fire la the most primitive In
Europe.
They don't send out any fire alarm at
all In St. Petersburg until the fire has
blazed out fierce and strong. In fact, the
fire department doesn't know It. One fire
man comprises In himself the St. Peters
burg alarm system.
At all times a fireman Is on duty In the
tower of the City Hall. He watches the
city, and when a fire burns up he notices
it, or is expected to do so.
If It Is In the -daytime he runs up a
number of black balls- on the outside of
the tower. If It Is In the night he uses
red lanterns Instead of balls. The num
ber of the balls or lanterns Indicates the
district In which is the fire.
On seeing the signal the firemen turn
out.
Naturally this method Is not productive
of great speed In reaching the fire. From
20 minutes to half an hour Is good time,
unless the fire occurs quite near an en
gine company's quarters.
The result is that the citizens of St. Pe
tersburg try to do most of the fire extln-
! gulshlng themselves, and as there la no
a Brewed in s plant as clean as the cleanest home kitchen always open to

order and no discipline the -wildest confu
sion usually prevails. At every hint of a
fire, nt matter how slight, the neighbors
begin at once to strip their homes of ev
erything of value. The police make no
attempt to establish fire lines, so the mob
hampers the firemen rather than helps
them.
But all this Is nothing beside the excite
ment of the progress of the engine or en
ginesthere are 74 pieces of apparatus
and 1027 firemen In the city to the fire, in
snowtlme the engines travel on runners
Instead of wheels. Beside the driver sits
a man ringing a big bell to warn other
vehicles to keep out of the way.
After the engine, five tenders follow,
one after the other. One carries the hose,
another a water tank. Then come three
more, all filled with firemen.
In the last century Russia has lost prop
erty to the amount of $15,000,000,COO by fire.
The loss averages $150,000,000 a year.
Bird Notes.
Chicago News.
Cuckoos are birds whose nations are a
standing puzzle to naturalists. As Is well
known, the cuckoo lays Its eggs in the
nests of other birds. When they hatch
the young cuckoos throw out the young
of other species and get all the attention
of the old birds for themselves. Recent
experiments show that the instinctive de
sire of the young bird to eject Its foster
brothers from the nest Is much stronger
than has been believed. Two cuckoo eggs
were placed In the same nest, and the
fight thai, ensued after the chlck3 were
hatched reads like an occount of cham
pions wrestling. The Instinct is a most
singular one and was manifested before
the birds were 20 hours old. Proverbial
early rising by the lark, expressed In the
phrase, "up with the lark," Js denied by
an eminent ornithologist, who claims that
whereas the greenfinch Is up at 2 o'clock
In the morning In Summer, the blackbird
at 4 and the hedgerow sparow half an
hour later, the lark does not appear until
after 5.

Coffee
"U'hen medicine falls they sometimes
send sick people away to another climate
for their health. Sometimes the climate
does It, but more often they stumble on
the proper food to take, and then get
well.
A lady In San Diego tells of a friend
who left her home each December, for
the past two "Winters, to go to California
for her health. She says: "Almost all of
her time was spent in visiting the doc
tor and sitting In a big chair and watch
ing the clock to note the time lor her next
dose of medicine. Nervousness was her
principal trouble, and wlth others of
kindred nature, made life for her a bur
den. "On the occasion of her last visit I
begged her to give up the use of coffee,
and use Postum Coffee. She replied that
t-he could not stop coffee. I said no more
at the time, but the next morning, at
breakfast, I passed her a fragrant, steam
ing cup of Postum, making It as It should
be made. After that. I had no more
trouble, and my friend drank no more
coffee. But the most surprising part of
the experience was the change that soon
came over her.
"We began to notice It within less than
a week. In less than a month her ner
vousness had left her, and In three
months she was a new woman In face,
figure and health I had not dared to hope
for so much benefit, although I had been
greatly benefited myself by Postum, but
coffee to her system was simply poison
ous, and I believe this Is the case with
many others. She returned to her home
In December, and was marrtcd within less
than two months after. She never falls
to give credit to Postum for her health
or thanks to me for teaching her to make
It properly, and well she may, for Postum
has done for her what travel, doctors and
medicine failed to do." Name given by
