Northern Pacific Joins
in Publicity Work,
IS SPREADING THE NEWS
United States to Be Covered
IN VERY BEST MAGAZINES
General -Passenger Agent A. M. Cle
land Has Directed Tat Mention
of Exposition Be Made in AM
Northern Pacific Books.
That the. Lewis and Clark Exposi
tion Is to be well advertised, there is
no longer any doubt. Hereafter it wlllfl
be hard to look through the adertls
lng paces of any important magazine
without seeing- pages descriptive ot
the Exposition. It is to be as widely
advertised as was the St. Liouis Expo
sition and through as many mediums.
Exposition headquarters have been
advised that the Northern Pacific Rail
way Company, through General Pas
senger Agent A. M. Cleland, is now
placing its magazine advertising for
1996 In such prominent periodicals as
Harper's, Munsey's. Cosmopolitan,
Scrlbner's. Pearson's, Everybody's and
other publications of like character.
Mr. Cleland writes A. D. Charlton, as
sistant general passenger agent of
Portlanfi, that the Northern Pacific
will advertise the Lewis and Clark Ex
position extensively in these great
magazines, and that the publicity thus'
given will be felt far and wide and
will be without expense to the Expo
Send Letter of Thanks.
In recognition of the valuable assist
ance which the Northern Pacific Is
git'lng the Exposition management, L
N. Fielschner, chairman of the commit
tee on exploitation and publicity, has
addressed " the following letter of
thanks to General Passenger Agent
Mr. A. M. Cleland, G. P. A., Northern Pa
cific, fit. Paul: I have received, through the
courtesy of Mr. A. D. Cfharlton, assistant gen
rl paiwenger agent, proofs of advertisements
mentioning the L"R-!s and Clark Exposition,
KliI ah. your company la carrying this month
In Eastern magazines and papers; also instruc
tions Issued to all general and district passen
ger agents, outlining the policy of the Northern
Pacific In respect to the- Exposition, to be held
next year; cW correspondence showing how
Sir. P. TV. Fummlll. your district passenger
spent at Philadelphia, answered the assertion
of a newspaper that the Exposition would be
Jocni In scope. I thank you for your courtesy
In submitting these various matters, which I
find- to be very Interesting.
I avail myself of this opportunity to express
to you our appreciation of the Northern Pa
cific's cordial and substantial co-operation to
make the Exposition of 1B05 a success. All de
partments of your great railroad are lending a
helping band, and we are benefiting by tha
influence of the work that is being done. The
recent visit to the Northwest of a number of
general and district passenger agents under
your guidance was a happy stroke of policy of
your passenger department. It will be sure to
bring practical results, as the representatives
of the passenger departments who visited us
were enabled to study the country at close
Tang and become personally familiar with its
vast capabilities and resources. In addition
to this, your magazine advertising carrying
libera) mention of our Exposition, and your
recent instructions to your -agents aimed to
reach peoplo most likely to travel, will be full
of good results to the Exposition. That the
effort of your company are far-reaching, and
that they will be productive ot large travel to
the Pacific Coast country next year are among
the sure signs of the times.
Sincerely yours. I. N. FLEIBCHNER.
Copies of this letter have been
mailed to Howard Elliott, president of
the Northern Pacific, A- D. Charlton,
assistant general passenger agent at
Portland, and C. TV. Mott, general Im
migration agent at SL Paul.
Others Wiil Adopt Plan.
"When the fact Is taken into consid
eration that the Northern Pacific 1b
but one of many great railroad sys
tems to advertise the Exposition in
this manner and to this extent. It Is
readily seen that the people of the
Vnlted States in general, wherever the
foremost papers and magazines are
read, will become familiar with the
plan and scope of the Exposition, and
tho rosult cannot be otherwise than
beneficial to the Fair. The fact that
the Exposition celebrates the centen
nial of the Journey of Captains Lewis
and Clark is influencing the magazines
and greater newspapers to editorial
mention, another thing that 1b result
ing in great benefit.
GOOD ROADS ARE ESSENTIAL.
Should Be Installed Ahead of the
Flood of Travel.
That good roads are essential to the
success of the Lewis and Clark Exposi
tion in the proper sense the effect the
Exposition will have in upbuilding the
state is the opinion of C. L Brown, of
Scappoose, who says he is willing to go
before the .Legislature with others in
terested in tho good-road movement and
do his utmost to secure early action. Mr.
Brown comes from a part of the state
where the roads could be better, and
he understands the situation thoroughly.
"There will be thousands of people com
ing to the Exposition during the cheap
rate season next Summer," he says. "The
majority will be more than willing to set
tle here It the situation is favorable. They
will penetrate into the interior and look
for locations. If they find nothing but
dried mud puddles and bridle-paths lead
ing Into all but the most settled commu
nities, they will not be willing to take up
homes in such inaccessible wildernesses.
But If there are good means of Ingress
and egress, many of them will stay. The
country In Itself will attract them, but
they must be ableXo get In and out. A
man cannot pack the lumber for a house
into tho mountains on his shoulders. Next
Spring would be a particularly opportune
time for a strong movement toward im
provement of roads throughout the thinner-settled
portions of the state."
EDUCATORS WANT SPACE.
An Apportionment for. Educational
Exhibit Asked For.
R, F. Robinson, superintendent of the
educational exhibit of the Lews and Clark
Exposition, has asked the management ta
make a definite statement regarding the
exact amount of space the exhibit is to
have. He is now planning to visit each
school In the state and arrange for the
various exhibits, and before this can be
done he must know exactly what space
the exhibits are to occupy. It is the plan
of the Superintendent to give, an exhibit
of the very best that can be accomplished
the pupils of the state, and he is anx-
lous to begin work at once, that scholars
and teachers will have ample time in
which to prepare their exhibits and do
themselves proper credit.
Yesterday, by invitation, Professor F.
Bcrchtold. of tho Oregon Agricultural Col
lege, called on Mr. Robinson at his office
in the City Hall to plan for an exhibit
from that institution. Professor Berch
told Informed him that the college would
spare no pains and expense to make its
best showing at the Exposition. The va
rious departments are already collecting
Much space will be required by the ed
ucational exhibit, and, as the manage
ment has found Itself with limited room,
there has as yet been no definite state
ment a? to the amount to be devoted to
this exhibit. Some time during the pres
ent week there will be a meeting of the
board of directors, and at that time Mr.
Robinson's communication will receive
the proper attention.
AQUARIUM FOR THE FAIR.
Government to Show Many Varieties
of Live Fish.
Huge glass tanks are-to be erected -in
the fisheries wing of the Government
building at the Lewis and Clark Exposi
tion. These tanks are to be filled with
water, and In them, surrounded by a 're
production of their natural haunts, are
to be placed specimens of all fish living
In the waters of the United States. The
Exposition officials yesterday received a
communication asking that a supply of
fresh cold water of 200 gallons per min
ute be supplied the fisheries wing of the
The tanks will be above the level of the
floor and the light will come from above,
giving visitors a good chance to observe
the movements of the fish. The huge
aquarium is to be divided into apart
ments, so that each species of fish may
be kept alone and distinct from all oth
ers. Several hundred feet of giars walls
will be necessary to display the fish true
to life. Experts in the employ of the
Government will attend to the fish and
see that they arc kept In good condition.
There will be small fish and large fish,
beautiful fish and ugly fish. Bright-colored
fish from Florida and the Gulf Coast
will be there. Finny monsters whose ex
istence is known but to the people in the
neighborhood from whioh they are to
come, will be there. The royal chinook
will have a specially-prepared cage and
will no doubt attract attention. Tho ten

by placing the specimens in smaller com
partments with circular walls, where the
fish cannot get sufficient headway to do
himself harm. Tho lowly flounder and
the well-known cod will be exhibited,
making the fisheries display something
which will prove attractive to the great
mass of visitors.

It will be Increased as occasion requires.
The Incorporators are M. B. Rankin, O.

well-known business men of this city.
Two of the stockholders reside in the
East, and the rest are Portlanders. "The
objects announced In the articles of in

ice, conduct a cold-storage plant and buy
and soil wood, coal and other fuel. The

"We all giggled. Harriet glanced at the
clock on the shelf.
" 'It's a quarter to S,' she said calmly,
pressing harder against the broom. We
all giggled again. The- room was full of
giggles in varied keys. Harriet never
giggles, sho laughs at tho right time and
in tho proper manner, never too loud and
never too long. -She began to look exas
perated. " 'Now, girls,' she said, 'be serious.
What shall we do with this mouse? Shall
we burn It. club It or drown it?'
"We looked at each other, but no one
offered a vote. I belong to the Humane
Society, and so I at last suggested that
the broom be lifted and the mouse be
allowed to escape.
"Josephine and Isabel screamed at this.
Isabel sprang up on the table and Jose
phine fled from the room, returning to
the door a moment later to stand peeping
through ready to slam the door If the
mouse should get free.
"I have heard said 'that it is painless
to perish in the flames, and If we must
destroy It, let's burn it.'
"They all groaned In concert,
" 'Dreadful! said Harriet.
" 'Inhuman!' ejaculated Josephine.
" 'Barbarous!' exclaimed Isabel.
" 'Girls!' cried Harriet, pressing hands
on the broom, 'it's live minutes to 8.'
"A faint squeak came from mder tho
broom and we all screamed again.
" 'We shall be late to school,' I said.
" 'And be fined,' chirruped Josephine, 'I
was fined when something happened to
my car year before last,'
" 'We'll have to write a round robin
of excuse to the board,' said Isabel.
"The clock struck eight.
" 'Girls.' said Harriet, 'stop giggling.
We must dispose of this animal at once.'
."A fainter squeak came from under the
broom. The girls again insisted that the
execution must be free from anything
dreadful. At last I screwed up my cour

" 'I'll take my apron, Harriet.' I said,
'and when you lift the broom, I'll throw
it over him and trip him up, and then
I can take the parcel and stuff it into a
bucket of water and then the mouse will
be no more.'
" 'You are a genius,' returned Harriet
gratefully. 'Be ready, now.'
"She lifted "the broom, and I started

by registered mall for a long time.
They were big, thick squares, and Invari
ably postage was 2 cents short. He always
called at the window In person and when
the girl stamp clerk handed out the letter
and requested payment of the postage
lacking, his game had always been to lay
a gold piece on the counter. It was usu
ally a twenty, sometimes a ten and once
or twice he had tried a five.
Change being often rather scare with
the clerk, she frequently gave up the let
ter rather than accept the gold piece. It
happened so often, however, that she be
gan to realize that the 2 cents evory day
(with which she -must charge herself)
would eventually amount to a noticeable
loss to herself. She finally told the super
intendent of her division about the matter
and the latter said:
"Next time he comes, don't give him the
letter, but call me."
Next day the 2-cent grafter showed up
as usual and was met by the superin
tendent at the window.
"Letter here for B X ?" asked
the man of twenties.
"Yes. here's one with 2 cents due for
The usual double-eagle was proffered,
and then the economical one got a sur
prise. The superintendent took the twenty
and proceeded to make change. One after
another he pushed out 359 nickels and
three pennies. As he deliberately shoved
them acroaj the counter he began a steady
stream of sarcasm, and kept It up until
the whole J19.9S had been counted out,
"We have been admiring you for some
time, said the superintendent. "We have
noticed your nerve and the remarkable
exhibition of generosity, unselfishness and
economy you have shown by permitting a
poor clerk to pay postage on all the let
ters you have been receiving from your
lady friend. No doubt the payment by
you of -2 cents on each of these letters
would have so affected you as to utterly
destroy the joy you would otherwise feel
In perusing them; and no doubt you have
felt that It Is a great privilege and source
of. pleasure to the poor clerk to pay the
postage on your lady friend's letters."
While keeping up this monologue the
superintendent noticed that a long line of
people was gathering, and he raised his
voice loud enough for them to bear. When
.the last penny had been counted, out, the
official finished to a general clapping of
hands down the line. LUTE PEASE.
FIVE BIRDS A DAY
And No Dogs in Field, Is Game
SUGGEST 10-YEAR. BAN ON ELK
Drastic Conclusions on Some Clauses
of Game Laws, but Report Em
braces Many Suggestions
Curtails Game Privileges.
Many changes in the present game
laws are suggested by Game Warden
Baker In his annual report to Governor
Chamberlain. The changes suggested
cover a wide and varledfleld and touch
on almost every section of the game
laws aa they now stand.
Some of Mr. Baker's suggestions
will be considered drastic, such as lim
iting a hunter to Ave birds a day and
not permitting the use of a dog In the
field, but there are several liberal sug
gestions, such as permitting hunters to
run deer with dogs in the month of
October and the placing of a bounty on
cougar, wildcat and timber wolves.
Elk, Mr. Baker believes, should be
protected entirely for ten years. These
animals are not increasing and much
damage is believed to have been In
flicted on the herds by men hunting
them for the teeth. The skinner is
after the -deer again, bdt only in remote
sections of the state. A bounty on the
scalps of antmnls which prey on deer,
Mr. Baker believes, will be a great
benefit to them.
Pheasants Thinned Out.
Mr. Baker finds that Chinese pheas
ants, were nojt. scarce, in all portions ot
the state, but that they have been
.thinned out to such an extent in the
Willamette Valley that a three-year
ban should be placed on dogs, with 15
days a year for their use at the most.
Twenty ducks a day, says Mr. Baker,
Is sufficient for" any man. and' he labels
the present 50-duck limit as "a shame
and a disgrace to the statutes of any
Seventy-five instead of 125 trout a
day he- calls a proper limit. The. sal
mon trout he wishes to protect further,
permitting this specie to be fished
during October and November and then
with only a hook and line.
The farmer, says Mr. Baker, has just
cause for his many complaints against
so-called city sportsmen who come into
his fields when he does not wish them
and cut the wire fences with wire nip
pers brought for the purpose to let
their dog3 through. He says it is up
to the farmer to protect himself in this
Twelve or 15 deputies he believes es
sential to the care of game in the state
and recommends the now much-discussed
practice of licensing hunters followed
in other states. He gives the amount
raised by this means in several states
during 1903 as follows: Colorado, $15,-18-1:
Nebraska, $3744: North and South
Dakota, 586S0; Illinois, $95,000; Michi
gan, $14.295.7o; Wisconsin, 578.164;
Idaho, 512.370; Washington. 514.DS2.
POLICE SEE JTIT-JITSIL
Troupe of Japanese Athletes Give an
General Bunemon Nil. editor of a
Japanese newspnper; IT. Kimura arid H.
Koyama, all famous Jiu-jitsulans, en
tertained Chief Hunt, a number of de
tectives and the entire night police
force yesterday afternoon with an ex
hibition of Jlu-jltsu. Since AJax, the
famous New York policeman, and Tom
Sharkey, the fighter, were thrown so
easily by a little Jap Portland police
men have been greatly Interested In
this science. The fact that General Nil
and 15 of his jiu-jitsu troupe are to ap
pear tonight at the Marquam had set
the department agog, and because some
of them could not get off to witness
the Japs In action a short exhibition
was given them.
Chief Hunt had Informed the police
men that General Nil would be on hand
at 4:30 P. M. and tho main office of the
big station was crowded with blue
coats. The fact that the station is not
provided with a gymnasium made It
practically Impossible for the little
Japs to show more than a dozen of the
simpler forms of Jiu-jitsu. The big po
licemen Mzed up the lltle brown men
rather skeptically at first. All of them
thought that at least a dozen of such
Hllghtly built fellows would be easy
for them to handle if It came to a
rough house." A number of them felt
of the Japs' biceps, expecting to find
them as hard as iron bands, and they
were surprised to find they were just
as soft as the arms of a woman. Some
of them were also under the Impression
that General Nil was tlje Jap that had
thrown Sailor Sharkey and they smiled
very broadly when they looked him
These smiles gave way to intense In
terest when K. Kimura and H. Koyama,
both of slight build but wiry, sprang Into
the center of the police station and made
their attack. The hard floor of the sta
tion had no terrors, and In an Instant they
were struggling like demons. Suddenly
Koyama, the smaller of the two, threw
himself backwards and threw Kimura
over his head. The fall would have ren
dered the average man breathless, but It
was not the case with these Japs. Again
the little fellows came together. The
struggled fiercely for several seconds.
Then something happened that was too
quick for the watching eyes of the police
man. Once more Koyama got the Jlu
jltsu hold on his opponent, and he threw
him in such a manner that he was
stretched straight out. The next instant
Koyama shook himself loose of Kimura
and sprang at his throat. He was just In
the act of showing how to choke a pris
oner Into submission when General Nil
After showing these points In jlu jltsu.
General Nil demonstrated, by using Cap
tain Moore and several of the patrolmen,
several holds which the Japanese police
use In conquering a prisoner In Japan.
Each hold was a painful one one by
which an arm, wrist or finger suddenly
grasped by General Nil could be broken
as easily as a match may be snapped.
General Nil did not use much force, nor
was there much resistance on the part of
the officers, but they quickly acknowl
edged that General Nil and his Japs had
something worth studying. A number of
the officers regretted that there was not a
wrestling mat at the station. Had there
been one. a couple ot them, who are no
mean athletes, would have liked to have
taken chances with the Jiu-jitsulans.
Both Chief Hunt and Captain Moore ex
pressed themselves as being highly taken
with jiu-jitsu from the little exhibition
they had witnessed. Mayor Williams,
General C. F. Beebe, Tsunejl Alba, the
Japanese Consul; Chief Hunt and Fire
Chief Campbell will be the guests of Gen
eral Nil this evening at the Marquam
France as a Mediator.
BERLIN, -Dec. 2S. It is believed here
that he latest rumor regarding the wil
lingness of Emperor Nicholas to listen to
mediation proposals rests upon a fresh
Inquiry of France as to what terms he Is
willing to accept in case of mediation.
Official circles in Berlin entertain the
possibility that something in this direc
tion has been going on since it has been
known that France and Great Britain
were anxious to terminate the war.
