Tho largest crowd of the -week -witnessed 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 l shower of fireworks the assembly gave Aem the loudest of applause. In response :o the demand for more nights of this. It s likely that the management will put "When Knighthood Was In Flower" on '.he programme for more than the two nights first assigned next week. Profes jor Krohn Is getting the whole show Into setter shape each evening, and It now ranks as best ever seen In Portland. Then Edwin C. Edwards, who had suc cessfully essayed the ride for life In the ifternoon, went to the lofty height of the unway and dashed down and out into the ilr to land with a clean Give in the pool ai the center of the field. While the side shows were in full blast Uiree teams of Woodmen of the World :ook the stage and went through an ex haustive drill. Prospect Camp, 140, had iS men In line under Captain J. B. Barnes, Prosperity, No. 39G, had 17 men under Daptaln W. Cramer, and ten men under Captain Brown represented Portland, No. 107. The prize for the besi drill was twarded by the judges to Prosperity ramp. Today Is Children's day, and the school children - ..e city will be welcomed free io all parts of the earnlvni jn-ounds. Next " be free to the children. Knnsaroo Court.. "This is Indeed a carnival of crime," said Judge Riley, of the Kangaroo Court, as he took his seat on the bench and gazed at the long docket of offenders. Prosecuting. Attorney Dolph agreed with His Honor and stated that he. was not In favor of j any leniency In dealing with hardened criminals of the sort he saw lined up Inside the prisoners' rail. "Frank Myers," yelled the bailiff. Myers responded and pleaded guilty to the alias of "Squeaky," and was assessed 200 for being so noisy.. He paid 50 cents and gave bail for his .appearance at a later date. Tony Metschan was brought up for run ning a bank. Metschan pleaded guilty and was promptly fined 25 centi, as he said that was his salary. A nickel was re turned him to get out of the grounds on. Paul Langley, an ex-lawyer, gave the name C. W. Fulton, but. on the Judge's stating that he had never heard of him, confessed to his right name, and was ad vised to work for his living and quit hanging around low places. A fine of four bits hastened his steps. A. K. Bentley, who escaped from Jail two days ago, was recaptured and ar raigned on a charge Of being a successful director. He pleaded guilty and was promptly fined ?5 for being stuck up. Sam Morris, alias Smith, was the next offender, and was fined 50 cents for being a knocker. The stately form of a gentleman of leisure was then guided before the bench. Judge Riley bent a stern gaze on the criminal, and asked him his name. "William Reld," was the answer, in a low tone. "Speak up!" roared His Honor. "You don't owe all these people, do you?" Reld said he did not, and that his sole offense consisted In having organized a carnival of his own. This was no pallia tion of his crime, and he was fined 51 so quickly that he nearly fainted. He was Supported by the bailiff and managed to dig up the money. Dan McAllen was charged by Lipman. Wolfe & Co., Olds, Wortman &. King and "Meier & Frank -with successfully running a dry goods store. "How were sales today?" queried His Honor. "Fine," said Mr. McAllen, enthusias tically. "The limit," said the Judge, and the would-be dry goods man subsided. Roscoo Oates was charged with being a breakfast food and with having a name like sawdust. He explained that his name was no fault of his. but paid a fine of 25 cents for talking back to the Judge. Ben Holman, who was accused of selling wet slabwood, dug up $20 for his fun. Nineteen dollars was m refunded him on condition of good behavior. C. C. Smith, arrested by Officer O'Toole without cigars in his possession, was as sessed 50 cents and "scored severely by His Honor. Fritz Abenroth wa fined 50 cents for -the came offense, as was Fred Noltner. F. W. Leadbctter was up for vagrancy, and his excuse that he was. running a woolen mill was not accepted by the court as a good reason for his being without visible means of support. He paid 51 on a fine of 5500. W. E. Carll. giving his profession as that of physician, was caught talking to Dorom. the wild girl, and pair 52. A San Francisco tourist named Schwabacher was sentenced to pay 52 for wearing a carnation after hours. Ed Mil ler, who was caught with a loud necktie, was fined 52.50. A desperate character named Flanagan was next, but as a cigar was found on his person the Prosecuting Attorney rec ommended him to the mercy of the court, and he was let off with a fine of 25 cents. Floyd, who said he was cook of the Scandian Hotel, paid 50 cents for punting a football 90 yards, which broke the rec ord and peace of the club. Dr. McKay, who swore lie was no doc-f- was promptly convicted of obtaining money under false pretenses and paid 51 to go free. H. Dickson, who looked so much like J. P. Morgan that the court asked him for a pass, was searched for cigars, but, only a beer check being found, he went the limit. Ronald Johnson, a Government em ploye, talked back to the "Judge, and he was two bits loser when the dust settled. "None but the brave deserve the fare," remarked His Honor when F. Cooper, a street-car man, was arraigned. Cooper claimed he' had done no wrong, but on testimony being offered that he had knocked down a fare and beaten the com pany he collapsed and was fined 25 cents. W. A. Clcland, who comes of good fam ily, was up for shooting ducks on Sunday with a bean-shooter. He asked for an at torney, and was immediately fined 52, part of which he paid. 7 "Who are you?" asked the Judge of the next offender. "Senator Rand, of Vancouver," was the response. "Of Vane " roared the Judge, and nearly fell oft the bench. "Where did you say?" "I was appointed by Governor McBride," announced the prisoner. . "Governor McBride Is a good man sometimes," said His Honor, "but I shall have to fine you 25 cents for being no poli tician." "King" Cole admitted that he had nothing but complaints from people "who bought his roofing, and, as he had on a dress suit, he was fined 51.50. "Who. are you?". asked Prosecuting At torney Dolph of the next man. "Wilder, of Honolulu," said the prisoner. "Any relation to Dorom, the wild girl?" "No." "Oh, you're wilder than her, are you?" Judge Riley commented, sarcastically. "Well, we'll fine you 50 cents." J. G. Mack, F. O. Downing and Walter Smith received the limit for being happy and selling goods without a license from the club. A. Caswell was charged with Impersonating a policeman, and was fain to make the defense that he looked after the streets. "You haven't seen all of them," re marked His Honor. "We sentence you to look at Eleventh street and lower Wash ington street" Caswell pleaded that the punishment was too heavy, but the court was obdurate. PEACE IN THE AERIE. Eagles Will Celebrate It by Hold in p: Reconciliation Social. The Eagles are to have a "reconcilia tion" social In their hall at Second and Yamhill streets next Friday evening. After the good things that are in store for the members have passed away, it Is be lieved the last trace of recent differences will have gone. At least the aerie Is planning the social for the purpose of bringing the different factions together again and restoring complete harmony in the order. Fred Merrill is chairman of the commit tee which has charge of affairs pertaining to the social, and associated with him are Eugene Blazier, William H. Brown, Slg Wertheimer, Fred Fritz and William M. Davis. The social Is to follow the regular lodge meeting, the first number being called at 9 P. M. There are 18 numbers on the programme as it is now constituted, and in addition the committee is planning 12 surprise numbers and the introduction of a number of features which have not yet been assured. Myers' Eagles' Band is com ing from Seattle to take part. 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 tions every 20 or 30 miles which are warmed by stoves, so that when the horses come in they are kept comfortable and dried and cleaned and are thus always In condition for making time. tins up tt nieht, cured by Oregon Kidney Tea, GEORGE JABOUR, WHO GUIDES THE DESTINY OF SCHOOL DAYS ARE NEAR CHILDREN RESUME STUDIES OX MONDAY MORNING. New BnlldinprH on East Side Are Not Finished, and Present Buildings "Will Be Overcrowded. Monday morning the city schools open. It is the day -when the festive small boy must forsake the companionship of his dog and must give up his da'lly trips to the swimming ponds and the other many joys so dear to the heart of the youngster in the good, old summertime. He must henceforth direct all his attention to the mysteries of reaaing and wrltlnc and spelling and arithmetic, or, If he is a, larg er boy. to the Intricacies of Latin. The next- nine months, until June vacation time again-rolls around, will be busy ones. A matter which is just now absorbing the attention of the school officials Is whether the school buildings will be ad equate to accommodate ail tho There is considerable doubt as to the ca pacity of the North Central, the Stephens and the Central schools, on the East Side. j.nese scnooLs are those with a record for crowded attendance nn1 tvViiio tVio of building annexes to each school has Deen in progress all Summer, not one of them has vet been comnlptpd. 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 readiness to enroll nunlls at everv schoftl when the bells strike the eventful hour Monday morning. 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- TID3 3IIDVAY. 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. FARMERS EAGER TO LEARN Stnte Agricultural College Asked to Hold Institute at Grcsham. ROCKWOOD, Or., Sept. IS. (Special.) A special committee of five was appointed by the worthy master of the Multnomah County Grange, held at the this place yes terday, for the purpose of inducing the State Agricultural College to hold a Farmers' Institute at Gresham sometime in the near future. The committee con sists of L. H. Wells, of Eastern Star Grange; J. W. Shattuck, of Gresham Grange; Mrs. Mary Brown, of Multnomah Grange, F. M. Laslle, of Columbia Grange, and F. H. Crane, of Rockwood Grange. The members of this committee represent the five Granges of Multnomah County and will do their utmost to have the Ac- .ricultural College set a data for an In stitute. It is realized that much could be learned from such a meeting and that many of the people hereabouts are anx ious to learn more about the methods of scientific farming. STAGE LINE DISCONTINUED. Gresham Is Now a Center for Dis tributing Mall. GRESHAM, Or.. Sept. 18. (Special.) The Portland-Sandy stage Is a thing of the past. A new line began this morning 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 bidder for the contract, his compensation being 54SO per year. The schedule Is as follows. Leave Gresham 8:30 A. M. and arrive at Sandy 12:30 P. M.; leave Sandy on return trip at 1.30, arriving back at Gresham at 5:30. All the mall for the other postoffices east of here and for Terry now; arrives at this place on the O. W. P. & Ry., and will receive quick dispatch, thus giving those offices an earlier service by several hours than they have ever had before. Gresham Is now the exchange office for Orient, Kelso, Cot trell, Sandy, Ames, Bull Run, Firwood and Terry. Mr. Noble nas put on a new stage and -will drive it himself, this being required by the department where but one stage Is ODerated. Mr. Noble left this morning on his first trip and made good nme over tne route. Building? Boom Starts. GRESHAM. Or., Sept. 18. (Special.) A building boom has struck this place, resi dences now being under way and just finished that will cost- about 510,000. Charles Cleveland has lately moved Into a new house that cost about 53000, W. L. Johnson has done likewise, his newhome costing about 52000. E. C. Llndsey has just finished a cottage worth 1500. W. H. Ham ilton is erecting a residence for himself that will cost him 51S00. D. W. Metzger Is doing the same, expending about 51500. J. W. Lawrence will soon have a new house costing over 5600. Dave Weaver Is just finishing an 5S00 residence, and Miss Maud Rowley is erecting one to cost a like amout. These houses are all of the latest styles In architecture, and are modern in every way. Besides these buildings the Oregon Water Power & Railway Company has just erected a commodious freight depot and is now putting up a brick building to be used "fcs a supplemental electric station. When It Is completed Gresham will be lighted by electricity. Numerous other smaller Improvements are also being made, Increasing the -outlay for new work of this kind to at least 515,000.

It will be the turn of the defense this afternoon at the investigation of the con duct of Special Officer Jack Roberts. Tho prosecution through its attorney, A. F. FlegeU concluded Its case Tuesday, and the defense had lust started Its rasp whon Mayor "Williams called time upon the pro ceedings. 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 showed that he for one understood that the case was as much an Investigation of Chief Hunt's methods In the North End as of the official conduct of Roberts. The 'was any graft in the police department ne wanted to know It, and that with this understanding the investigation could pro ceed, even though the evidence seemed ir relevant to the case In question. - It Is promised by both parties that the session today will disclose even more sen sational evidence than that which was brought to light by the questioning of Tuesday. It Is not yet known whether the session will be private, but as the Mayor did not wish any one not dlreclly con nected with the case In hand to be pres ent at the last meeting, it is doubtful If today's session will be public. Fully 50 persons went to the City Hall Tuesday, and crowded the doors of the. committee room In a vain attempt to force an en trance. Some were there simply out of Idle curiosity, while many others had a personal interest in the matter and wanted to hear all of the evidence. There were also a few representatives of the good government movement who were de nied admittance. The Chief stated at" the, close of the In vestigation that he knew of one man who had served the subpenas for the prosecu tion and Intimated that he was the figure in the background." He declared that he had affidavits to prove that Jack Hoare, a special Deputy Sheriff of the North End, had sworn vengeance' against him. The Chief was asked Wednesday if he wished Hoare to appear before the po lice committee at the next session of the Investigation. He replied that he had no such desire. He Intimated that Hoare was behind the movement, yet does not wish that he should be put upon the stand, where the questions of the attorney for the defense "might establish this fact. SUES HUSBAND FOR ASSAULT. Mrs. Bowcn Condemns His Interfer ence as Peacemaker at Carnival. Mrs. Lottie Bowen didn't like her hus band, Harry Bowen. to talk to another woman In her absence, so she vented her wrath upon the other woman, and has now had her husband arrested for assault and battery because he Interfered. Such was the story which Bowen Told Consta ble Jackson and those at Justice Reld's court when arrested. She has also ente red suit for divorce after being married only three weeks. It appears that Bowen and his wife, who are connected with the Kingston lodging-house, went to the Multnomah Club carnival Thursday. Mrs. Bowen strolled away from her v husband for a time, and when she returned, behold he was engaged in conversation with an other woman. Straightway Mrs. Bowen expressed her wrath, and concluded by pitching into the offending woman with right good will. Bowen came between the two, and his wife thought that he had done a little more than a peacemaker should. So she swore out a warrant for his arrest on a charge of assault and batter'. DEMAND FREE DELIVERY. Citizens of University- ark De nounce Action of Authorities. A meeting of representative citizens, of University Park, held In the auditorium of the Haywood Club last night con demned the action of the postal authori ties In turning down their petition for free mall delivery, and took action re newing their demand for that service. G. B. Tucker was chairman, and J. B. Easter stated the object of the gathering, which was to protest against not being Included in the free deliver' district, though there were abundant streets and the conditions fulfilled the requirements for free delivery. Francis J. McKenna said he was confi dent the people, of the district from North Albina on down the Peninsula would sure ly get free mall delivery If they took a firm stand. He read the following reso lutions, which were adopted as the senti ment of the meeting: We. the citizens of that part f the City of Portland known as the Peninsula, In mass meeting" assembled, adopt tho follow ing preamble and resolutions: Whereas. The district inside of the City of Portland without frf-e postal delivery serv ice contains a population of 3000 people; and. Whereas, Said district is almost as level as a floor and notted over with graded streets nnd boulevards so as to make every home convenient of approach by vehicle or footman: Whereas, This district contains a univer sity, three public school districts, a street car line extending through Its center, five miles of plank sidewalk, 10 miles of graded streets and many homes v.-hlch cost from 53000 to $1500 each; and. , Whereas, The Postofflce Department has seen fit to refuse our request for free deliv ery service; Resolved. That we express our indignation in no uncertain terms and notify the de partment that we believe that such act Is wholly unwarranted, unprecedented and un wise; that a committee of three bo appoint ed by the chair to correspond with the members of our delegation In Congress and implore tbem to use their influence with the department for our relief. Francis I. McKenna. J. B. Easter and J. B. Hart were appointed to carry out the resolutions. It was then moved and carried that arc lights should be placed on Willamette boulevard and Portsmouth avenue, on Fifth street, between Dawson and Wil lamette boulevard, and also on Agnes avenue. Councilman Flegel will be In formed of the action of the meeting In designating these locations for arc lights. Gorjreous Snnsets of Rare Beauty.

M., and pn Wednesday, the 23d Inst., will set at 6 P. M.. as It "crosses the line" at 9:34 that evening and Fall begins. So glorified sunsets may be looked for every evening from now on as long as fine weather continues. An enthusiastic young man of artistic tendencies states that the sunset Wednesday evening was one of the most gorgeous and brilliant af fairs of the kind imaginable, but he 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 low to terminate In a gorgeous glowing 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. BLACKMAILERS AT WORK Japanese Hihblndcri Attempt to Levy Tribute. Japanese blackmailers or highbinders are at work in Portland according to the statements of several prominent Japanese of this city. Two members of the gang were brought into he Municipal Court yesterday, on 'complAlnt of M. Hujakwa. It appeared that Jlra Fnrya raised a com motion in a Japanese lodging-house in the North End Wednesday night. He slashed one of his countrymen with a knife, according 10 the evidence deduced incourt yesterday. Another member of the gang. Telko by name, was said td have threatened the lives of a number of Japanese In another lodging-house. Hujakwa, the man who made the com plaint against the two Japs, says that they belonged to the Seattle gang which destroyed his newspaper offlae and furni ture there some time ago. Together with other prominent Japanese he says that there is a systematic effort now under way to levy blackmail upon the Portland Japanese, the gang threatening to do violence If the levy is not paid.

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 residence. 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. WAN A MAKER IS 'CALLED XotertPliIladclphinn Speaks in Oivn Defense in Slander Suit. BEAVER, Fa., Sept.
