MOVE FOR THE FAIR
Seattle Chamber of Commerce
Agrees on a Plan.
COMMITTEE TO BE APPOINTED
Legislature Will Be Asked for Appro
priation and Commercial and
Other Bodies in Washington
Will Be Interested.
SEATTLE. Wash., 2sov. 2. (Special.)
The Chamber of Commerce, at Its meeting
this afternoon, for the -first time took up
the question of advertising Washington at
the Lewis and Clark Exposition next year.
Secretary Melkle advised that a commit
tee of five be appointed to take the mat
ter in charge and see if a sufficient ap
propriation will not bo made by the State
Legislature and at the same time attend
to having the commercial and other bod
ies of the state Interest themselves. Mr.
Melkle said It was time, if Washington
and Seattle Intend to do anything, that
Bome move be made, and he believed .the
best, way of handling It would be through
a committee. The members of the Cham
ber of. Commerce unanimously agreed and
a committee 'will bo named later.
The action of the Chamber of Com
merce can be traced to the recent visits
of Portland men prominently Identified
with the big Exposition of 1S05. President
H. W. Goode has been here urging co
operation, and so have other prominent
Portland men. The Seattle body was
among the first to Indorse the request
made of Congress to appropriate more
than 12.000,000 for the Fair.
Recently a personal canvass of the King
County nominees for the Legislature
showed a strong sentiment In favor of
a good appropriation for a Washington
exhibit at the Lewis and Clark Fair. The
Chamber of Commerce committee will
take up the work of preparing Seattle's
showing and also urging the Legislature

SAN FRANCISCO. Nov. 2. The Bulletin
today says that with the arrival In Berke
ley of Samuel Hume, a Wells-Fargo Ex
press messenger on the Oregon run, comes
the story of a desperate hold-up on the
Shasta Route. Two masked men robbed
the train crew on the overland freight

them to be tramps, ordered them to

Monthly Expenses Take Balance of
SALEM, Or., Now 2. (SpecIal.)-SIxty
cents a month Is all the Marlon County
public schoolteachers figure they can .save
from their salaries, and not even this
can be eaved if they make any allowance
for incidentals. This estimate was for the
teacher with an average salary and the
computation was made for a year of 12
calendar months. The estimate was made
this forenoon at the annual session of the
Marlon County Teachers' Institute, when
ISO teachers were assembled to discuss
matters of particular Interest to the teach
Superintendent of Public Instruction J.
H. Ackerman Introduced the subject of
teachers' salaries in discussing the sub
ject "The Teacher as a Missionary." In
the course of his address this feature of
the educational system was touched upon,
and finally Superintendent Ackerman
asked the teachers to make a detailed es
timate of their annual income and ex
penses. As a result of these estimates it
was determined that the average income
of Marlon County teachers is 510 per
month for seven school months, 'or $280
a year. This would be an average of
$23.33 throughout the year, but to make the
estimate safe the teachers raised the av
erage to $21. Then they estimated their
cost of living per month, as follows:
Board and lodging $12.00
Laundry . . . . l.oo
Newspapers, periodicals, books, etc.... .50
Church and charity .40
Amusements, concerts. Institutes ...... 1.00
Carfare and travel .SO
Recreation and Summer outing ....... 1.00
Health and -medicine 1.00
Income less expenses, per month 60
Net gain for 12 months 7.20
By presenting these figures to School
Boards when the subject of salaries comes
up for discussion, the teachers hope to be
able to induce the school officers to raise
the compensation offered, so that teachers
may be able to get something more than a
living for their work.
The Marlon County Institute convened
this morning in the assembly-room of the
First Unitarian Church, with County Su
perintendent L T. Moores presiding. The

TREATS LOW-GRADE ORES.
Southern Oregon Man Perfecting a
Most Economical Process."
LUCKY BOY, Or., Nov. 2. (Special.)
Successful -operation of a treatment of
sulphides concentrates is now being car
ried on by the plant using the De Keyses
electric cyanide amalgamation process.
The claims of M. De Keyses, the inventor,
have been well demonstrated. The opera
tion is automatic and requires thp at
tention of one man. With only part of
the process the extraction Is over B4 per
cent.. Additional parts, soon to be com
pleted, will show over 90 per cent of the
gold and sliver. These additions will be
made In a few days.
The pulverizing is perfect to 100 and
finer mesh, which is successful under
aeration of a diluted solution of cyanide
(strength of same 0.M). This will be in
creased to 0.05 as soon as the proper
voltage, dynamo is procured. Ten tons
are now treated daily at a cost of about
$1 per ton for labor and chemicals. As
soon as the whole of the process Is com
pleted the problem will be solved for tbe
profitable extraction of this difficult ma
terial. No more shipping or rehandllng
Is required and low-grade ore can now
be treated without concentratlori at nom
inal cost With a plant of 100 tons dally
capacity ore (such as sulphides, arsenic
and quartz) can be treated for less than
$60 per ton, eliminated of power.

that he ran the meander line practically
along the edge of the marsh; that the

CADETS IN REVOLT
Berkeley Students Disregard
THROW CLODS AT PROFESSOR
Ordered to March to Classrooms, They
Appear on Scene With Small
Boy in Uniform to Bur
lesque Army Officer.
BERKELEY, Cal., Nov. 2. In open re
bellion against a new military rule re
quiring them to march Into the classroom
for lectures on war tactics, the students
of the State University participated this
afternoon In the" most sensational scene
In the history of the Institution. When
Professor William A. Setchell attempted
to quell the disturbance the students
Jeered his remarks" and threw clods at
him. It is expected that the ringleaders
will be summarily dismissed from college.
The trouble started among the cadets a
few days ago when Captain J. T. Nance,
U. SL A., the new commandant, arrived
to assume charge of the military depart
ment In place of Captain Henry De H.
Waite. Captain Nance had no sooner
entered the classroom than the students
acted in a boisterous manner. Finally
Nance declared they would have to be dis
ciplined and Issued an order that the col
legians would have to march Into the mili
tary lecture hall.
No sooner had the edict been sent forth
than the collegians talked rebellion. This
afternoon a strike was declared. Instead
of marching in regular order, nearly 1000
students appeared on the scene with a
small boy dressed In military uniform and
wearing a placard bearing the name of tho
commandant. The little fellow rang a
bell at the students' bidding. In unison
they shouted for Captain Nance to come
out. A. hurry call was sent the faculty.
Professor Setchell arrived and added to
the excitement by saying:
"I am much ashamed of you boys. Don't
you Intend to respect the authority of tho
university. This Is a riot. I recognize
the ringleaders of this affair and I will
remember you. You are cowards. If you
bad a sense of honor I would appeal to
It, but you havo none. Don't you know
this news will reach the military authori
ties at Washington and the State Execu
tive at Sacramento? You are working seri
ous injury to the university."
Professor Setchell's remarks were con
cluded amid catcall? and a shower of clods
flung at him.
Finally order was partially restored.
when Harry Dehm, president of tho As
sociated Students, and Eugene Hallett. of
Los Angeles, adjutant of th6 student
oaaets, maae an appeal, under tneir di
rection, the students marched Into the
hall, where Captain Nance, In full uniform
"I want to be friends with you." he said,
"but you must maintain order."
This is the first serious rebellion the
military department of the university has
ever had. Captain Trance formerly com
manded the Ninth Cavalry.

"The Eagle organization may be com
posed in part of saloon men, but they are
not as bad as they are painted." said Rev
Mr. Zedlker, "and I believe that Instead
of vilifying them from my pulpit It Is the
best policy to go among them and try to
correct the existing evils."
Next Sunday morning Rev. Mr. Zedlker
will continue his sermon. He hopes to
convince the rest of his congregation that
the Eagles are -not as bad as their repu

that if Rev. Mr. Zedlker wanted to Join

one that would not have given everybody
a chance to object. They say that now
their minister is the laughing-stock of the
town. On the other hand, the rest of the
congregation claim, with Rev. Mr. Zedl

that Instead of using his pulpit to vilify
them, he should go among them and try
to bring them into the flock.

ARE AGAINST DRY"
MAKE PUBLIC STATEMENT
With Scarcely an Exception the Bank
ers, Manufacturing Establish
ments and Business Men Say
It Would Injure Oregon.
To Whom It May Concern:
In view of the fact that a prohibition
election has been called for the entire
County of Multnomah, "we wish to state
publicly our position In the matter.
We believe that prohibition' would have
a disastrous effect on the finances of
Portland, of the county and of the state.
We believe that It would have a de
pressing effect on business of all kinds,
and would certainly Increase taxps.
In order to meet the l03E of revenue de
rived from licenses, communities adopt
ing prohibition are forced to raise a por
tion of the lost revenue by Increased
taxes, and they meet "the remaining defi
ciency by reducing their expenses. In
Multnomah County, in Portland and In all
6ther counties and cities of Oregon, such
a reduction in expenses would result In
poorer streets, fewer repairs, fewer po
lice, fewer firemen, less building and
other undesirable economies.
Wo do not, all of us, wish to be un
derstood as being opposed to the gen
eral principles of local option, but this
principle Is in no way Involved in the
coming prohibition election. The prohibi
tionists have taken advantage of a new,
loosely-drawn and little understood law
to call county elections, that too, against
the wishes of many people who voted for
the local option law last June.
The coming election Is not for prohibi
tion by precincts, but by counties. Under
these circumstances, therefore, we merely
desire to record our convictions that pro
hibition In Multnomah County or any
other county In Oregon Is undesirable,
unnecessary and would create an endless
turmoil and expense. We believe, there
fore, that for the general good, prohibi
tion snouHi oe voted against.

cause. Had the pudding reached the din
ner table, as was Intended, the Uvea of
a score of persona would have been Im
periled. The colored housekeeper, her son, wno
acts as bellboy, and another negro lad

In July, 1883, 1 began to break out with
Eczema on my headT legs and arms, and
began treatment with, local doctors, but
did not get much relief. They said the dis
ease had become chronic. I then quit them
and tried various ointments and soaps for
another two years, but as soon as cold
weather camel wa3 asbadofi as ever, so I
finally decided to let medicine alone, and
for twelve or thirteen yeara did nothing
towards curing the Eczema, except bath
ing. This seemed to do about as much
gojckl as anything I had tried.
During the time I lost about one-half of
my hair. I began 3. S. S. doubtful of a
cure, because the disease had run so long,
but soon discovered your medicine "was
doing me good, and continued to take it.
I used seven bottles, when I was com
pletely cured K not having a single spot on
my body, which before was almost com
pletely covered. F. C. Norpok.

The head, feet and hands are usually
the parts affected, though the disease ap
pears on other parts of the body. "While ex
ternal applications allay the itching and
bnrningtemporarily, it is the acids thrown
off by the blood that cause the irritation
and eruptions upon the skin. The acids
must be neutralized and the system cleans
ed of all humors and poisons before the
cure is permanent.
