the best performance of the week
j-esterday at the Multnomah Club Car
nival. From the time the gates opened till
they closed over 15,000 poured through and
saw every feature at Its best. Edwards,
the new daredevil blcycllsty made the
thrilling ride for life twice, and each time
successfully. And In the evening a splen
did production of "When Knighthood Was
In Flower" roused the Immense audience
to enthusiasm, which was not lessened
when three teams of Woodmen went
through a showy drill. At 8 o'clock the
IVoodmen of the city gathered at Tenth
wd Washington streets and paraded
through the city. Tuey were received
irlth acclaim, and when they reached the
:arnlval grounds were greeted with cheers
for their fine showing.
Everj' seat was filled at 9 o'clock, when
Brown's Band took its place before the
big spectacular stage. Immediately the
huge chorus filed out, and for half an hour
glittering costumes, lively music and en
trancing ballets kept every one up to the
highest pitch of enjoyment. The famous
'Sadie Girls" from the "Wizard of the
Kile" were there and gave their dance to
the rollicking notes of "Zamona."
Special mention Is due the excellent
urork of the girls and clubmen in the
jpectacular performance. Their clear-cut
lancing and drill was good to see, and
when the last grand dance came on under

Oregon Hone for Alaska Stnjre.
Horses adapted to all kinds of service are
still to be found In this state. If one knows
where to look for them, although they
are not so numerous as they used to be.
William Frazler has just returned from
"Wallowa, where he has spent ten days
collecting a band of 44 horses for an
Alaska stage company, operating ya line
between White Horse and Dawson, carry
ing mall and passengers. The horses are
well-bred and weigh about 1300 pounds
each, which is the weight desired, and
are clean limbed, which Is a very desir
able feature in horses which have to
travel over muddy or snowy roads. There
has been so much Clydesdale and Perch
eron blood mingled in the stock of Oregon
horses of late years that most of them
have long hair on their legs, which, as it
accumulates snow or mud, is very unde
sirable on coach horses. A class of horses
used to be plentiful here some years ago
which were very suitable for stage horses.
They were of Belfounder stock, fine boned,
clean limbed, sinewy and sprightly, but
they are growing scarce. These horses
will be shipped about the 21st to Skag
way. The company ordering them is a
large one, and runs Its stages through
the Winter on schedule time. It has sta

pletion anywhere In sight.
According to City Superintendent Rigler,
the contractors are taking their time. The
result may be that the three schools
named will be crowded to such an extent
as to necessitate the establishment of
"half-day" classes. Under this method
half the students take their lessons In the
forenoon and the other half during the
afternoon. No overcrowding Is feared at
the other schools.
"As soon as the annex buildings are
completed, the problem of seating all the
school children of the city will have been
solved," said Superintendent Rigler yes
terday. "Until then we may have more
or less difficulty. These haft-day classes
are not desirable, by any means, but there
will be nothing else to do If there Is an
overcrowding of the East Side schools.
This system. If it Is necessary, will be
only temporary, as the additions will
surely be finished before a great while.
"However, the contractors have us at
their mercy. In their contracts there Is
no penalty or forfeit clause, and they can
have the buildings ready when they feel
like it. They promised to have them ready
by the middle of August, and again by the
1st of September. It may be the middle of
the year before they get them done.
"The maximum attendance of the city
schools Is about 12,000 pupils," continued
Mr. Rigler. "At the beginning of the
school year the attendance does not reach
this figure, nor Is the attendance likely to
become this heavy until along In Febru
ary. When the annex structures are com
pleted, we will have seats for 14,000 pupils.
"The heavy attendance is confined to the
East Side. The attendance at the Park
and Harrison and Atkinson schools Is
comparatively light, but, of course, the
fact that we have extra seats ln these
buildings does not relieve the overcrowded
conditions In other districts.
"When the contracts were let for build
ing additions we had difficulty in letting
the contracts. We could not dictate to
the contractors, as there had been a strike
of some -sort, and labor -was scarce. We
couldn't find a contractor who was willing
to talk to us of a penalty clause under
which they would have to get the build
ings ready at a stipulated time or pay a
forfeit. That is the reason the buildings
are not ready for occupancy yet.
"While the attendance is. usually heavy
at the HItrhlnnd School, we do not antici
pate any difficulty there, as eight rooms
of tho new building are completed and
ready to be occupied. There are six rooms
yet to be finished at this school, and when
they are done there -will be plenty of room
in the district."
Superintendent Rigler stated that there
will be no hitch at the High School, and
no overcrowding Is looked for there.
All teachers have been secured, supplies
have been distributed, and everything Is In

Wnys of Indian and Chinook Jargon
Indians of every kind especially
blanketed and moccasined ones, arc a
rare sight on the streets of Portland these
days, and are becoming scarce even In
their own haunts. The Chinook Jargon,
which -was the chief means of communi
cation between the early settlers and the
Indians, and words and phrases of which
not many years ago were heard on every
corner, is now never heard, and It may
fairly be said of the Indian that his name,
race and tongue are things of the past
A recent visitor to the city, Charles Gra-
ham, whose father after being a pioneer
resident of this state for some years, went
back to Illinois and remained there, af
ter having heard so much about the In
dians here and their jargon, was very
much disappointed not to see a single
"Siwash" on the streets nor to come
across any one using or having any knowl
edge of Chinook jargon. It is probably
difficult for a resident of old settled sec
tions to realize how swiftly backwoods
settlements grow and how completely
they change In population and culture In
a quarter of a century. Few come here
nowadays expecting to find .many In
dians or to hear Chinook jargon In use,
and those who do are bound to be disap
pointed. The Northwest is no longer the
wild and woolly West of 50 or even 25
years ago, and the last dictionary of
Chinook jargon was printed over 25 years
ago and a copy of it could hardly be
found now except In the case of some
collection of curios. Whisky and high liv
ing have made Indians about as scarce.

The members of this committee represent
the five Granges of Multnomah County

The Portland-Sandy stage Is a thing of

between here and Sandy, the other part of
the route from Portland to this place
having been discontinued. John W.
Noble, of Oregon City, was the successful

earlier service by several hours than they
have ever had before. Gresham Is now
the exchange office for Orient, Kelso, Cot

It Is -understoodrTiowever, that some of
the witnesses for the prosecution will
again be called to the stand, as the pro
ceedings are informal. For the defense
the principal point will be to show that
the Investigation was caused by persons
having an ulterior motive. Roberts has
admitted that he had on a few occasions
received money from Japanese women
when he performed some special service
for them, but stoutly denied having levied
any weekly assessment upon their earn
ings. Chief Hunt has been drawn into the In
vestigation, as at the session Tuesday
seemed to forget that he was not upon
the stand In his own defense, and ap
peared Intent upon clearing himself of
all suggestion of grafting on the dive
keepers. At the close Mayor "Williams

did not wish any one not dlreclly con

The Chief was asked Wednesday if he

So glorified sunsets may be looked for

young man of artistic tendencies states
that the sunset Wednesday evening was
one of the most gorgeous and brilliant af

failed utterly In attempting to describe
It, as the halos of varying colors lasted
up till about 9 P. M. The display started
from a bank of pale green clouds along
the horizon and this grew and changed
colors through all shades of red and yel

shell pink which no artist could imitate
nor pen describe. People who admire
gorgeous sunsets should gaze on the
Western' horizon In the evening with the
assurance that the show will be worth
the price of admission, whk-h Is rather
unusual these days.

HE WANTS A FULL CORD
J. X. Dnvis Sues Fuel Company for
Giving Short Mcn.inrc.
James N. Davis, the attorney, doesn't
like rotten wood and, what's more, he
wants a full cord, 12S cubic feet and not
a cubic foot less. Now he says the Pio
neer Morrison-Street Fuel Company sold
him a cord of wood and took $4.75 of his
good money. He says he notified the fuel
company that the cord of wood delivered
was not up to the required grade and
that it was forthwith to replace It with
fuel of the kind demanded at the Davis
But the fuel company was a little slow
j about exchanging the wood and therefore
I he has filed a. complaint In Justice Reld's
I Court. He appears as his own attorney
J and puts the case very strongly. He de
clares that the cord of wood delivered
at his homse September 14 contained only
104 cubic feet, Instead of the 12S feet
which It contained when Mr. Daris went
to school. He says the wood was rotten.
Therefore he demands the price, $4.75,
together with all' costs.
