THAT the art of photography is ad
vancing Is evidenced by the very ex
cellent work displayed by the mem
bers of the Oregon Camera Club in the
ninth annual print exhibit which was
opea to the public last night. The ad
vance orr last year's work is notable,
and the earnestness and energy with
which each individual member has striven
to produce the best possible specimen of
2Hs skill for this exhibit Is a good indica
tion that the mission of the club to ad
vance photography as an art is being ful
filled. Six caps were offered for competi
tion this year, reaching all branches of
the photographic art.
The Judd cup. donated by E. Y. Judd for
the best general exhibit by any one mem
ber, was awarded to Henry Berger, Jr.
This collection, which consisted of four
classes landscape, marine, portrait and
animal life, reached a degree of excel
lence not often attained by the amateur.
His technique was particularly flrfe and
the composition was also excellent This
is the fifth year of the competition for the
Judd cup, it having been won heretofore
by E. Y. Judd, Harry G. Smith, Mrs.
Charles B. Ladd and O. M. Ash.
Miss Bertha Breyman, the winner of
the Excelsior prize this year, becomes the
owner of this cup, which is donated by
Mrs. W. S. Ladd, a condition being that it
must be won three times In succession be

petitor. The best landscape containing
clouds and water, excellence in technique,
art and composition considered, were the
requirements of this competition, and Miss
Breyman submitted a beautiful piece of
O. M. Ash has carried off the Marine
cup, donated by Paul Wesslnger. His
three beautiful carbons are receiving much
favorable notice from the public and that
the judges considered them the best ma

of the ciip to him. Mr. Ash has a hand

competed for this one cup. A carbon
CONTRACTORS BLOCK STREETS
Popular Clamor Aroused
The Mocking of the streets by building
contractors is arousing suoh attention
that the ordinance regulating the construc
tion of bandings and the consequent use
of the streets may be changed to appease
the popular clamor.
At present contractors have the undis
puted right to fill up half of the street in
the front of the building under construc
tion with their material. This Includes the
use of the sidewalk. No matter how long
the bvUding is in construction, the thor
oughfare is taken up in the same way.
Seattle people are Just now raising a
mighty protest against the condition of
their streets from this same cause. Port
land is not suffering as much, but fully
enough to have the present system
changed, say pedestrians and property
owntsrs who arc adversely affected.
"What is wanted, so the troubled ones
ay. Is an ordinance providing that after
the first story of the building is erected all
material must be kept inside the property
line. This would lessen the nuisance as it
exists at present. Such is the rule in
Eastern cities, they declare, and they want

xflower study, "Jonqullls," is particularly
good in his collection.
The Llpman cup, which is new this
year, is donated by I. N. Llpman, the con
ditions being "Best Illustration of Long
fellow's 'Day Is Done.' " a J. Mellls
was the successful competitor for this
cup, the prizewinner being especially ap
propriate In composition, and his execu
tion most artistic.
D. Ellery. the winner of the Portraiture
cup, displays a beautiful Collection of por
traits in bromides. This cup Is donated
by Harry Smith for the best exhibit of
portraits, to be competed for but once.
Mr. Ellery's posing is most effective and
his work deserving of special mention.
Alfred Anderson's exhibit of a collection
of Oregon scenic views won' the Beginner's
cup, which is a new prize this year, do
nated by J. P. Plagemann. Mr. Ander
son's work Is in platinum and most care
There Is a great deal of work on exhibi
tion this year that is not in the competi
tion, and much outside the prizewinners
that Is deserving of honorable mention.
Miss Elizabeth Hutsby's collection is espe
cially meritorious, as Is C. H. Hoeg's ex
hibit of portraits. H. M. Smith, who was
not in competition, has hung some pho
tographic gems In this exhibit, and the
work of Mrs. Charles E. Ladd In carbons
Is unusually fine. Mrs. Ladd shows a
master hand at cloud effects, and her
flower studies aro also very fine. S. A.
On the north side of this block the new
six-story building of the Marshall-Wells
Hardware Company is being erected. On
the south side the ground Is being cleared
for the new Welnhard structure, to be
erected on the north half of the block
now occupied by the big seven-story brick
The contractors for the Marshall-Wells
building, having availed themselves of the
kind regulation giving them almost free
and unlimited use of the street, have
placed all their building material in the
mud of what was once Pine street. They
are allowed 30 feet all around the property
on which they are building, which they
have taken quite naturally. Thesidewalk
Is of course impassable on this side.
On the south side of Pine street, several
trees have been felled across the sidewalk.
Saturday the only way of navigating" Pine
street was in the narrow lane left to the
public by the contractors. At the corner
of Fifth street a constructing shanty had
been placed so far out that there was
room but for one vehicle at a time to pass
by. This was all the thoroughfare there
In every part of the city there is
trouble and Inconvenience on account of
the blocking of thoroughfares. Property
dwners also complain that contractors are
exceedingly slow about removing building
"We can't help it," said City Engineer
Elliott yesterday. "The contractors take
out permits and by the ordinance they
havo the right to use the streets as long
as the structure is going up."
Thrall, the president of the club, has con
tributed to the general exhibit, and Miss
Maud Ainsworth and Mrs. W. G. MacRae
have done good work. An exhibit by
Will H. Walker, not for competition, en
titled "White Death" is an unusual sub
ject and well handled. The white death
is a fog that settled In certain parts of
Montana, coming down suddenly, and Is
Lso thick and white that people are often
lost In It. The picture was taken as the
fog approached. James Haran has in
his collection a picture that was hung In
the San Francisco exhibit In the Mark

Impartially conducted, the three judges se

There was a large attendance at the
opening last night, and the exhibit will
be open to the public each afternoon and
evening of the present week.
TAILOR WANTED A WIFE.
And He Stood on a Corner Three
Hours Waiting for Her.
People passing the northwest corner of
Third and Yamhill streets shortly after
2 o'clock Sunday afternoon, saw a nervous-looking
young man with a large,
white chrysanthemum in his right hand.
He was looking for a girl whom he hoped
to marry, but she didn't arrive in time,
and to all reports nevec will. The young
man In question is a tailor, and he wears
glasses? sports a sickly-looking mustache,
ho dresses in baggy trousers and other
garments, stands 6 feet 2 inches tall, and
wejghs llff pounds. It was not possible
to learn his name. For some time past,
this gay Lothario wished to marry, but
nono of his girl acquaintances smiled on
him, and In his desperation he advertised

will know who you are. If I like you, I
will pass the same corner, alone, at 5:20
P. M. and we can be married right away."
The bartender mailed this letter to the
address given, and at the appointed time
he and several male friends were near the
corner to see the fun. The victim was
there with a flower in his right hand,
almost as tall as himself. He smiled In
the face of every girl who approached
him, and many girls, accordingly, held
their heads rather higher than usual. The
jokers nearly killed themselves with sup
pressed laughter. The bartender was en
joying the affair from the friendly shelter
of a neighboring window. All afternoon
the victim waited, and when 5:20 o'clock
came he was nearly frantic with excite
ment. But no girl came to give him even
a friendly greeting. Sadly he went to his
desolate room, and It Is understood he
is writing another advertisement.

Finlanders Say Local Employment
Agency Deceived Them Badly.
Two natives of Finland, who have not
yet mastered enough English to order a
square meal, declared to the police
through the medium of an Interpreter yes
terday morning that they are not very
favorably impressed with some of the
practices of this country. They are espe
cially bitter against the manager of the
Davis & Ikeman Employment Agency,
who sent them to Hood River, a distance
of 65 miles, to take jobs with a lumber
company. Arriving at the lumber camp
the trio learned that there have been no
men wanted there for three months or
Going to the scene of work they had
buried themselves in the plush seats of a
passenger car, and reckoned up the
wealth that they could accumulate at the
rate of $3 per day. Coming back It was
different. In the first place neither had
any money left and the distance was long
and the air was cold. When they reached
town yesterday morning they looked as
if they might have spent the night adrift
on an iceberg. Likewise they were hun
gry, which was very Inopportune, consid
ering that they were broke and had noth
ing that a pawnbroker would want.
Then, by the fortunate exercise of mem
ory and logic, they recalled that they
bad eiven tho employment agent ?2 apiece
for their lumber jobs; they had not got
the jobs and therefore they ought to have
their money back. They went to the
agent and demanded it, taking C. L. John
son along as their Interpreter. They say
the employment man merely looked sav
age and pointed at the door. When they
hesitated about leaving they declare he
threatened to throw them out.
Of all this the police were duly Informed
and the officers referred the trio to the
Prosecuting Attorney, who will look Into
the case. .,

TUEKEYS POR EMPLOYES.
Several Firms Vill Make Thanksgiv
Dealers have at last announced that the
price of turkeys for Thanksgiving will ba
25 cents per pound, except some of the
very choicest- It was not fully known till
yesterday how full a supply there was to
be. A great number were received Sun
day, and more came in yesterday, so that
now there Is not likely to be any scarcity.
The turkeys are of better quality than
usual, and were procured at more ex
pense, and it was difficult for the dealers
to decide to make the price less than 27
cents: but finally it was decided that tha
price generally is to be 25 cents per pound,
but for some fancy stock 27 cents will
be charged. There are some very large
ones on display. A few weighing from 35
to 40 pounds each.
The largest single order for turkeys was
placed over a week ago by T. B. Wilcox,
who needs 450 to furnish one to each of
the employes connected with the Portland
Flouring Mills and the mill at Tacoma.
Fleischner & Mayer have ordered 100 for
presents to the men in their store, and
Waterhouse & Lester will distribute about
the same number among their employes.
As the turkeys will average in cost $2
each, the turkey for Mr. Wilcox's Thanks
giving dinner will cost about ?10QO.
