All persons are required by law to make
a statement of their property, which the
Assessor states that he sometimes has
icome trouble in obtaining. Speaking rela
'tlvo to the matter he said:
"One of my deputies today left a blank
.statement at the office of a mercantile

Hhat he would make it out when he got
'good and ready, and went on to say
:to the deputy, 'You fellows get in there

and you get swelled, up, and we can't do
anything with you.' That is a nice busi--ness
man for you, but he may bump up

The statute provides that any one who make a statement to the As
sessor may he taken into court and made
to forfeit ?20 for the use of the county.
According to figures compiled hy County
Assessor McDonell there are 91 banks in
the State of Oregon, 37 of which have
stockholders residing in Multnomah Coun
ty. To each of these banks a letter Is
addressed, asking for a list of stockholders
residing in Multnomah County, that they
may be assessed for their holdings. Of
this list of banks, all but eight have re
sponded. A second letter will be addressed
to these eight banks, and if they do not
respond the matter will be turned over to
the District Attorney for settlement.

Excellent Prosromme Pleases a Big
Business is steadily increasing at
Shields Park, and last night was the ban
ner Monday of the season. The pro
gramme Is kaleidoscopic enough In char
acter to make it highly entertaining, and
Demontrello's act adds a sensational cli
max. He appeared last night in the garb
of Mephisto, and went through the hazard
ous feats without a slip, although his
sprained ankle still bothers him. The
Lamonts, two very clever acrobats, made
a pronounced hit. Miss Lamont is excep
tionally graceful.
Amateurs will have a chance to shine
again Friday night, and several are al
ready booked to appear. -MatsudaJs Royal
Japanese acrobats will play a return en
gagement in two weeks.

Construction of Buildings Will Be
gin at Once.
The executive committee of the Port
land Elks' Carnivai last night disposed
of a number of Important contracts for
the show. Tho bids for the construc
tion of tho Temple of Light and Music
and the main arch for the entrance on
Seventh street on Washington were
opened. A large number of bids were
submitted. E. Miller's bid on the main
arch. Including tho removal of the same
when the fair Is concluded, was found to
be the lowest and was accepted.
On tho Temple of Music George D.
Smith bid lowest, and was awarded the
Manager Rowe brought up the matter
of appropriating some extra money If it
were possible to be had, and the work

ably illuminated and lettered arch of
welcome over Sixth street, not far from
the general exit and entrance to the
Grand Central Station, so that every
passenger to the city should behold the
emblem of the Elks the first thing after
leaving the train. Mr. Rowe advanced
this as a harbinger of cordial welcome
for all strangers coming to the city.
Preliminary arrangements were talked
of last evening for another special day
on the list of special days for societies
and associations. Captain Charles E.
McDonell, who has been appointed a
committee of one to confer with the
Multnomah Club, had ascertained that
the club would be glad to co-operate with
the management of the show but the di
rectors did not know what they would
be expected to do. It was decided to set
apart a day during the last week of the
fair when the Multnomah Athletic Club
shall have special doings on the grounds.
The prevailing decorations of the day
will be the club colors, and it was sug
gested that some acrobatic feats or other
performances of the members of the club
would not be Inappropriate.
A letter was received from H. C.
Bowers, manager of the Portland Hotel,
saying that he was at the disposal of
the committee and that he would help
them In whatever way ho should be
commanded. Mr. Bowers was. designat
ed as chairman of the committee on dec
orations of stores and buildings with
power to select his own committee.
Money is to bd set apart for the payment
of cash prizes to merchants and business
houses for decorating their windows most
attractively and artistically during the
time of the fair.
The momentous music question was
discussed for some time and the commit
tee on music requested the general com
mittee to express Its choice by a vote,
on which band organization should be
had for the. concerts. The music com
mittee is empowered to make further se
lections of bands to take part in the
parades as they shall be needed. Brown's,
De Caprlo and the Third Regiment were
placed In nomination. Brown's band re
ceived the most votes. It was explained
that it was an amicable arrangement be
tween Brown and De Caprlo that either
way the contract went, both would share
in the benefits, or In other words divide
the profits. A number of other bands
will be hired to render music Brown's
band is designated as the concert band.
By Wednesday the architect reported
the plans for the Manufacturers' Build
ing would be completed and figures call
ed for from builders.
The parade committee reported that re
plies are expected from the fraternal so
cieties within a day or two as to whether
the societies would turn out for a grand
pageant on the streets. Chairman
Summers said he wanted a body of
from 300 to 400 uniformed Elks on Elks'
day as an escort for the Queen on the
way to her coronation.
W. M. Davis said last night that he
had gotten almost all of the 100 candi
dates for membership in tho Portland
lodge which It 1b proposed to initiate on
tho eve of the opening of the Carnival.
The committee decided that bids for
conducting the German Village in the
Carnival, which made such a great hit
last time, should be received until next

Main-Object of Movement Is to Pro
Tide Bull Run Water for
This District.
Citizens of Piedmont and Woodlawn
are anxious that the opening of Union
avenue, from Alberta street to Dekum
avenue, be preased as vigorously as .pos
sible. They have two important reasons
for desiring the opening of the avenue
and its consequent improvement: Firer,
bey want an Improved street in that dis

cannot hope to get Bull Run water, tor
the water committee will not lay mains
In an unimproved street.
Progress is now being made toward the
opening of Union avenue. The viewers'
report has been adopted. It 1b proposed
under the proceedings to make Union

owners are favorable to the widening,
there Is not likely to be any serious oppo
sition. It is proposed to improve the
avenue when the widening is an accom
plished fact. The Portland Railway Com
pany will continue its double tracks to
Woodlawn and Improve the service.
The breakdown of the Piedmont water
plant 10 days ago, causing a shortage of
water to over 120 families, has cause! a
general clamor for city water. A petition,
for water was turned down some time
ago, for the reason there is no Improved
street in the district. The cause of the
accident to the water plant was the
giving way of the pump. Water was
supplied by means of a water cart, which
went from house to house. The cost to
consumers per faucet Is Just double what
Is charged for Bull Run water. A. H.
Buxton, a resident, said yesterday that
tho lawns have burned up for the season
and that there 1b no fire protection, ex
cept the chemical at Highland.
"I don't blame the owners of the water
work," he said, "as the accident was
probably unavoidable, but we should be
given Bull Run water. We pay our taxes
out r.orc, and aro cntltlcdfto some consid
eration. If the city authorities will press
the matter of the opening and Improve
ment of Union avenue, we will then ha v
good ground to press our reques't for
Bull Run water."
Owners of Three-Story Buildings
Notified to Put Them Up.
All three-story tenement buildings on
tho Tt3st Side must be provided with fire
escapes, according to the 'requirement of
the ordinance bearing on this class of
structures. So far very little attention
has been paid to the notices District
Engineer Holden gave some time ago,
but now these fire escapes will be re
quired. Th City Attorney has taken the
matter in hand. The Logus building, on
the corner of Grand avenue and East
Washington street, will bo the first to
comply. Fire escapes will be erected on
this building very soon. There are sev
eral others In East Portland and Alblna
which have not been provided with es
capes, but they will be looked after In
their turn. Among these are the Smith,
Osborn Hotel and tho Brownwell build
ings. While the Brown building, on Haw
thorne and-Grand avenues, was being re
paired. It was provided with very fine
fire escapes. Two six-Inch standplpes
also extend to the top Instead of the
two-Inch pipes that were on the building
before the fire. Ono of these is on Grand
and the other on Hawthorne avenue. At
the bottom there are three intakes and
two openings for hose connections. The
whole building can be flooded from the
top "by means of these two standplpes,
should there be another fire in It.
C. S. Ry. Co. Providing a Bnild
InK to Hold 2000 Cords of Wood.
Extensive Improvements are under way
at the power plant of the City & Sub
urban Railway Company, near Inman,
Poulsen & Co.'s sawmill. All the boilers
have now been provided with "Dutch"
ovens, which very largely increase their
steaming capacity. The old fuel-house,
which has stood on the east side of the
power-house ever since tho latter wa
built, will shortly be torn down. Work
has been started on another fuel-house
farther east, 120x40 feet. In which 2000
cords of "masticated" fuel can be stored.
This fuel comes from the sawmill by
means of a chute and carrier, after it has
been thoroughly cut up In the "hog."
From the fuel-house fuel Is fed to the
boilers automatically, requiring the at
tention of few men.
The removal of' the old fuel-house will
provide space for more boilers, as more
steam Is required to run the big dyna
mos. As more cars are put on the new
and the old lines more power Is required
to operate them. . At- this power plant
there has been a constant growth from
the 70-horse-power dynamo to the mam
moth 500-horsepower dynamo and engine.
As new lines have been built more dyna
mos have been Installed, until the build
ing is filled with generators.
They May Use 'Bridge Today Road
Tray Is Partially Completed.
Teams may use Madison bridge today.
Yesterday the Oregon Water Power &
Railway Company put down planks be
tween the rails of the on the north
side of the elevated roadway on Haw
thorne avenue, between East First and
East Water streets. The south- side Is
not finished, but vehleles can use the
north side of the elevated road. With a
little caution, there will be no danger.
Planking for the remainder of, the road
way will be put down at once.
Several loaded wagons undertook to
cross Madison bridge yesterday, but were
turned back. The closing of the bridge
has been a serious Inconvenience to .the
public It doubled the team traffic on the
Morrieon-street bridge.
Building: Material onjlnnd and the
Plant Will Be Completed.
An abundance of material has been se
cured and work on the new plant of the
Phoenix Iron Works, on East Third
street, between East Clay street and
Hawthorne avenue. Is now being crowded
forward. On East Clay street the founda
tion for the foundry Is being laid. This
structure will be one story high, 100x50
feet. Part of the material used in the
foundry that was destroyed by fire will
be used In the new foundry building.
The machine shops, which will be two
stories, and COxlOO feet, come next. The
pattern building will be two stories and
32x50 feet. The next building for general
purposes will be 25x50 feet- The entire
half block will be covered by the- plant,
but there will be left space on the ground
for stock. It will be a very complete
plant, and although the location is re
moved from the river It Is not consid
ered inconvenient, and it will be much
safer in case of fire.
Peninsula People Anxions to Knovr
What Has Become of Petition.
Residents of Piedmont, Woodlawn and
other portions of tho Peninsula are
anxious to know what has become of their
petition for free mail deliver)'. A peti
tion largely signed was placed in the
hands of Senator Simon more than six
months ago, but they have heard noth
ing about it since.
The people in this district want free
mall delivery, and they think that they
are as much entitled to It as any other
portion of the city. They do not Intend
to be sidetracked, and will Institute In
quiry as to what has been done with their
petition. .

Holmes Conl fc Ice Company Estab
lishment Dniuaged by Flames.
For the second time In about three
days a fire broke out last night shortly
after 11 o'clock at the refrigerating plant
of the Holmes Coal & Ice Company, at
10 and 12 North Front street, and caused
about $1000 damage, covered by Insur
ance. An alarm came from box No. 61, at
Front and Couch streets, pulled by
Speclal Omcer John Roberts. Flames
were bursting from the smokestack on
the top" of the roof, and one stream of
water and two streams from a chemical
engine were poured on the blazing struc
ture, but In about 15 minutes' time, nil
danger of the fire spreading had passed
About $22,000 worth of butter, eggs and
cheese was stored In the refrigerating
plant, belonging to various customers,
and it is believed that one-half this sum
is covered by Insurance.
It will be a difficult matter to approxi
mate the exact loss until It is known
whether or not the smoke reached the
eggs and tainted the contents. It Is
thought that the fire started bj; a spark
igniting among the sawdust. In the
smokestack. One of the fire officials
stated that the fire would not probably
have occurred If the smokestack had been

Many men tolling In offices, stores and
workshops during this hot Summer
weather, and women weighted with tno
work and cares of home, are critically
near the breaking-down point. The symp
toms of coming sickness and disease .are
manifested In sleeplessness, nervousness.
tired feelings,- lariguidness, Irritability,
falling appetite, and poor blooa circuia
Palne's Celery Compound Is a precious
boon to the ailing, sick and rundown in
this August weather. A bottle or two used
at once will quickly bestow the needed
strength to battle against the weakening
and enervating effects of the oppressive
heat, and will enable men and women to
go through the necessary routine of dally
toll with heart, soul and energy. Palne's
Celery Compound Is specially distinguished
for its ability to build up run-down sys
tems In hot weather.
Mr. George W. Dcmarest, of 123 West
67th street. New York, says:
"I am a licensed stationary engineer,
and although my work Is not very la-
borious, suffered so Intensely with severe
pains In my back and kidneys that I was
compelled to leave my work and remain
atshome for six months. I suffered great
ly with headaches and soreness In chest
and lungs, and my Joln'ts became very
stiff. I actually felt I was doomed to fill
an old man's grave at the age of 32.
As a last resort I used two bottles of
Palne's Celery Compound when I was
able to resume my wiik, and after using
the third bottle I am la perfect health.
The value of Palne's Celery' Compound is
Inestimable, and I urge ethers afflicted as
I was to use It."
