THS MOANING OBEGONIAN, WEDTESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23,' 1905.
I OF CONGRESS
What Lewis and Clark
. Board Will Ask.
GRANT OF $2,125,000
Bill Ready to Be Introduced
in Both Houses,
UNITED SUPPORT OF. COAST
National Aid. Approved by President
and 31 any Eastern Members of
Congress Committee Will
Go to Washington.
A bill appropriating 52.125.000 for the aid
of the Lewis and Clark Exposition has
been prepared and will be forwarded to
members of the Oregon delegation for in
troduction in Congress. Before it Is
placed In the hands of the state's repre
sentatives, formal approval will have been
obtained from the Legislative committee
of the Lewis and Clark Corporation, the
board of directors and the State Commis
sion. It is to be left to the members of the
Congressional delegation to choose the
member of the House and Senate re
spectively who will introduce the appro
priation act, but it is generally believed
that United States Senator Mitchell will
look after the interests of the bill. In
the Senate this is regarded as a certainty,
and It Is believed he will give the matter
bis attention in the House, so far as pos
sible. The bill has already been submitted to
Senators Mitchell and Fulton and Repre
sentative Williamson. Representative
Hermann was unable to attend the meet
ing at which the bill was discussed, but is
expected to join the other members of
-the delegation in expressing unqualified
approval of it.
Details of Appropriation.
The appropriations provided for in the
For the erection of a Government build
To aid In the erection of a memorial
building to perpetuate the memory of
Lewis and Clark and to' preserve the relics
of their expedition, 5250.000.
To provide suitable statues, and fur
nish historical data, etc., for the Lewis
and Clark memorial, building, 5100,000.
To enable the officials of the Chemawa
Indian School to make an exhibit at the
Lewis and Clark Fair, showing the man
ner in which work at the Government
training schools Is conducted, 525,000.
For the purpose of aiding the Lewis and
Clark Exposition, 51,500,000.
In a general way the provisions of this
bill have been approved by the Trans-Mls-eisslppl
Commercial Congress and the Na
tional Irrigation Congress. In addition,
numerous Eastern Senators who have
been approached on. the subject have
given their unqualified approval' to a j
plan - of asking the Government for a I
substantial appropriation and the Sena
tors from Washington have agreed to sup
port the Oregon movement. It is expected,
all the members of Congress elected from
Coast states will be identified with the
movement and that the Lewis and Clark
bill will have hearty support.
Friends of the Exposition have discussed
the question with President Roosevelt,
and he has shown hearty approval of the
project. He Intimated several weeks ago
to John Barrett that he would mention
the Lewis and Clark centennial In his
forthcoming message to Congress. His
attention has been called to the subject
more recently, and It Is believed that Ex
ecutive approval of the bill will be
Send Committee to Washington.
The bill has been prepared by W. D.
Fenton, a member .of the executive com
mittee of the Lewis and Clark board of
directors. He has been awaiting the re
turn of A. L. Mills, chairman of the Leg
islative committee, before submitting the
measure to that committee for Its ap
proval. Mr. Mills has been too busy since
his return to bring the question before the
directors associated with him on the com
mittee, but It will be brought up at once.
When Congress meets. It Is the plan of
the board of directors of the Lewis and
Clark Fair to ask several prominent Port
land citizens to go to Washington and
urge the passage of the bill.. The Lewis
and Clark board of directors and the state
commission will be represented on such
a committee, and it is expected that with
the important historical features of the
Exposition thoroughly understood by the
members of Congress, not much difficulty
will be met In securing favorable action.
The suggestion has been made that
Washington men be asked to assist in
the movement, and it is possible that
someone from California will be Invited
to accompany the local delegation. The
members of the Lewis and Clark. board
are extremely anxious that a representa
tive Washington citizen should go East
to urge the passage of the bill. It is
likely that representatives will be sent
from both Washington and California.
FOR PORTLAND IN 1904.
Strong: Delegation Going to Spokane
Meeting of Traffic Men.
Portland traffic men will go to Spokane
next month 50 strong to urge a strong
campaign at the annual meeting of the
American Association of Traveling Pas

meeting in Portland. The Spokane meet
ing of the Northwest division of the Pa
cific Coast Association of Traffic Agents

Seachrist, general passenger agent of the
New York Central lines, has been making
an active canvass among local railroad
men to insure the attendance at the Spo
kane meeting of a big delegation from
this city. Yesterday over 50 persons had
definitely decided to attend and It is likely
the delegation will be nearer 60 before the
final plans are concluded.
The traffic men of the Coast have al
ready approved the project of holding the
1904 National convention in Portland, but
It has been asked of Portland railroad
men that they take the Initiative in an en

proposed that a strong effort shall be
made at the Spokane gathering to Induce
a big delegation to go from the coast to
New Orleans and advocate the Portland
The New Orleans meeting is to be held
In November. Arrangements nave been
made lor a big excursion party of railroad
men to leave Chicago and another excur

will be extended "by the Chamber of Com
merce, Commercial Club, Board of Trade,

LIBRARY FOR SCHOOLS.
Selected Books From Pnblio library
Will Be Circulated.
County School Superintendent R. F.
Robinson announces that In the public
library there are 1500 books out of which
It is proposed" to form a circulating li
brary for the public schools of Mult
nomah County, mainly those of the coun
try, as they need books more than the
city schools. The arrangement Is to place
these books In the hands of the pupils
and keep them moving until they have all
been read. . After the first of the year
there will be more books available for this
"I regard this movement for a circulat
ing library in this county," said Mr. Rob
inson yesterday, "as one of vast im
portance. It will place within the reach
of every pupil in Multnomah a supply of
books that have been carefully selected
with a view to the wants of the various
grades of the schools. The books are of
excellent character. They will be put up
In boxes and sent out to the schools of
the districts from the office of the Coun-'
ty School Superintendent. I shall send
them by some resident who will see that
they are safely delivered. A record will
be kept and the boxes of books will pass
from one school to another until all have
been read by all. This circulating library
plan will apply more to the country than
the city schools, but the latter can have
advantage of it. In a short time the cir
culation of the books will begin.
As the libary is sustained out of the
public funds. It Is proper that the people
should have all the advantages possible
out of it. At the public library there is
also a system of clipping of articles and
pictures on different subjects, such as
South. America, Mexico and other coun
tries, which the pupils have to study.

FIELD MEET A SUCCESS.
Gnminie, Kerrigan and Coates Win
Honors at Running.
The athletic meet at Multnomah field
in connection with the carnival on Mon
day evening was a grand success as well
as a novelty, as the records made were
good and It was the first athletic meet
ing ever held in the city by electric light
The first event was the 50-yard dash,
and the first heat was won by George
Gammle in 5 4-5 seconds with Connell, of
Y. M. C. a., a very .close second. The sec
ond heat was won by Bert Kerrigan and
Coates, tho crack hurdler, came in second.
The final heat was captured by George
Gammle, the xlub's great little sprinter,
in the fast time of 5 3-5 seconds with
Bert Kerrigan, his teammate, second.
Gammle made a record for himself by
winning all the sprints, four in number.
He easily captured the 75-yard dash from
Connell In the good time of 8 1-5 seconds.
In the 100-yard racene again showed his
superiority by defeating the field hands
down, second placo going to Connell, the
Y. M. C. A. sprinter. The 120-yard dash
was easy for Gammle and Smlthspn, of
the Y. M. C. A., was second; time, 12 4-5
A. B. Coates, Multnomah's crack
hurdler, won both hurdle races, the 120
yard low hurdles and the 75-yard high
hurdles In the time of 12 4-5 and 8 1-5 sec
onds respectively. Oscar Kerrigan was
second In both of these events and made
an excellent showing. He bids fair to
make a fast hurdler before long. Coates
Is probably the fastest hurdler since the
days of Multnomah's great hurdler, Ed
Morgan, who has not yet been equalled
In the Northwest
The field events were interesting and,
as usual. Bert Kerrigan won tho high
Jump, although he was hard pushed by
hls young brother, Oscar. Bert cleared
tho bar at 5 feet and 7 inches and Oscar
was but one inch under him.
Ed Murphy, Multnomah's old-time
vaulter, won the pole vault at 10 feet, and
second place was won by Bert Kerrigan
at 9 feet 6 Inches.
Cqates captured the broad Jump handily
from Bert Kerrigan, with a leap of 20
feet inch and Kerrigan cleared 19 feet
and 8 inches.
The shot-put was won by Multnomah's
weight man, Sanders, with a put of 37
feet 5 Inches and James was second with
36 feet 6 inches.
All in all, the meet was a success, was
well handled by the committee, was en
Joyed by the spectators and will no doubt
be repeated at some future date by the
Grand Jury Lets- Jolntlsts Off.
TOPEKA, Kan., Sept 22. The criminal

Reaches San Francisco.
In about two weeks' time tho new
row Navigation Company, will be ready
for her trial trip. The boat Is lying .at
the deck of the "Willamette Boiler "Works,
where her machinery was installed. Tho
engines are all in place, and all that re
mains to be done on her lower deck is to
put in a little piping. Some time next
week, after stie has been Inspected, the
Telephone, will be taken up to Pacquet'a
yard, at the foot of Clay street, where
she will be painted and her cabins and
The original intention of the owners of
the Telephone was to take her to Puget
Sound and place her on the Seattle-"What-com
route. It Is believed this plan has
been abandoned and the steamer will re
main here. "When Captain U. B. Scott
was in Portland a few days ago he was
asked what would be the prospects of tho
new boat on that route, and said the
Telephone would never pay there. CapI
tain Scott who designed and built the
original Telephone, Is as well posted as
anybody on Puget Sound steamboatlng
and de declares there is no possible open
ing for the Arrow Company's new craft
From a reliable quarter it is learned
that the Telephone will join the Portland
Astoria fleet, probably in opposition to
the two established lines. "When asked
if the Telephone is to go on the Astoria
run, Joseph Pacquet, who is building the
boat, merely replied: "I wouldn't be sur
prised." The Inauguration of a new lower
river line in opposition to the O. R. & N.
and Kamm companies would no doubt
mean a rate war fought out no less bit
terly than that now raging between the
Spencer and Regulator companies. They
have had a taste of such warfare down
that way, and know how to proceed.
Neither of tho two companies now in
business would stand Idly by and -see a
new-comer get a foothold on the route.
The Telephone promises to be an exceed
ingly fast boat, probably tho fastest on
the river, and her advent in the Portland-Astoria
passenger trade would mark
an era in the business.
In the meantime, the struggle between
the Upper Columbia companies goes on,
and the traveling public Is taking advan
tage of the low fares to patronize lib
erally the Bailey Gatzert and the Charles
R. Spencer. The O. R. & N. Is watching
the situation closely, and if It finds Its
rail business Is being diverted to the
water lines, will take a hand in the cut
ting of rates.
VOYAGE OF BIG LOG RAFT.
Cargo for Forty Schooners Arrives
Safely at San Francisco.'
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 22. (Special.)
The largest log raft ever towed down the
Pacific Coast arrived hero early this
morning, in tow of the steamer Francis
Leggett, Captain Jackson. It contains
8,000,000 feet of lumber, and was built in
Oregon for the Hammond Lumber Com
pany. Fivo days and 20 hours were con
sumed in the voyage down the Coast,
which was not without incident .
Shortly after starting down Columbia
River a heavy Southwest gale Avas expe
rienced, and the Leggett had to make fast
in the river, waiting for the storm to
abate. The wind stirred up a bad sea, and
the leviathan raft was nearly awash a
good part of the time. Tho voyage was
resumed after tho weather moderated.
Cape Blanco was passed Friday afternoon.
In appearance tho raft, resembled an
enormous cigar. It is bound together with
chains and heavy hawsers. It Is estimat
ed that the raft would make cargos for
40 ordinary lumber schooners. V
Local shipping men consider It one of
the greatest feats In Coast shipping cir
cles that the raft was brought down with
out a hitch. In addition, they breathe a
sigh of relief to think this menace to
ocean shipping is out of the way. Talk is
renewed of Federal statutes to prohibit
the towing of these monsters.
