CHIEF HUNT WILL ACT
If It Is Within the Corporate Limits
of the City He Will Order That
It Be Removed
The billboard painter has already begun,
to get in his work near the Fair grounds
and has so far erected one ugly sign, the
most conspicuous thing on the landscape,
half a mile beyond the Government build
ing and on the St. Helens road. It Is not
a gaudy affair and advertises a brand
of -whisky, but it Is the only thing to mar
the scenery and has already created a
great deal of comment.
Whether this large, but meek-appearing
sign is merely an experiment and -whole
groves' of billboards will disfigure the
hillsides, if public Indignation does not
tear this one down, is only a conjecture.
But there is no telling to what limits
billposters will go in their desire to flaunt
some article of merchandise before the
crowd. There never was so good an op
portunity to draw the attention of the
many as on those beautiful green hill
sides, and If the owners of the property
are beguiled by the lucrative offers which
the billboard fiend is sure to advance, the
possibilities in the way of spoiling the
appearance of the Fair are unlimited.
For the surroundings are a distinct por
tion of the grounds, like a frame to a
picture. A disfigured framo will spoil
the whole effect.
But it is lawful to build these boards
on the hillsides, unless they are over 12
feet high. In that case the Chief of Po
lice has .authority tor tear them down if
thev are within the city limits. In the
case of the present billboard it is in prox
imity to the city line, and it might need
the; aid of a surveyor to decide this point.
It Is right at the old Burelbach crema
tory and the city lino runs directly
through that- A police officer detailed to
learn the exact location of the sign re
ported it outside the limits, but Chief
Hunt has ordered special investigations to
see if he cannot prove it to bo within the
If the sign is without the city there is
no way of preventing its remaining, no
matter how high it may be. In that case
a plan has been suggested to the Fair
management to build a plain board fence
and paint it green immediately in front
of the sign on the adjoining piece of prop
erty. If practicable this will be done
and the plans of the billposter will be
Darker and more violent means of rid
ding the landscape of a nuisance have
also been hinted at and it is said that
there is no telling what citl2ens may
There Is no danger of the whole hill
being a zigzag effect of tall, fcncellke
billboards, for the property-owners near
est the Fair have positively refused to
lend their land to such purpose. The
chief owners there are the Scottish-American
Investment Company, represented by
Russell & Blyth and Edward Cooklngham,
Paul van Fridagh and W. F. Kettenbach.
Beyond them it is too far oft for effective
display of signs. There is just one small
strip of land near the water where dis
play can be made, a goodly portion of It
outside the city limits. All the tall green
fences in the world could not hide the
works of an enterprising billposter, if he
can-obtain permission to build extensively
there, and the owners are not residents
of the city.
Sign Disfigures Landscape.

I was not surprised at the vehement dlsgunt

I was conducting around the Fair grounds the
other day) when they caught sight of that
advertisement of a certain whisky brand dis

the Linton road. It is certainly, viewed from
the Grand Staircase, a prominent feature in

No! If It is beyond the city boundaries

of the premises ha6 given the advertising man

might have the obliterating whitewash brush

WILLIAMS CAN GO SOME
O. A. C. Sprinter Huns in Even Time
CORVALUS, Or., May 14. (Special.)
Interest Is sharp here In the dual 'field
and track meet to take place on O. A. C.
field next Thursday between the Univer
sity of Washington and Oregon Agricul
tural College "teams. The result, when
compared with a meet to take place two
days later between the University of
Washington and University of Oregon
teams, will enable enthusiasts to get a
line on the meet to follow a week later
between O. A. C and U. of O., and also
to give a strong idea of the comparative
strength of the two latter teams for the
big state meet to take place at Salem,
Thursday's meet will be the first be
tween Washington and Oregon Agricul
tural College. The two teams have met
four times in football matches, and each
has two victories to its credit. In O. A.
C. circles, while uninformed as to Wash
ington's strength, there Is a degree df
confidence In a very fine showing for the
Oregon men. If not indeed a clean-cut
First and second places in the sprints
and short runs are counted on as fairly
certain for Oregon Agricultural College.
Williams and Smlthson are not believed
here to have equals and certainly not su
periors on the Coast. Physical Director
Trine says Williams is good for a 10-sec-ond-flat
record in the 100-yard dash when
ever it becomes necessary for him to run
that fast. Williams had a slow start and
was beaten but by a body in the 100-yard
race here last Saturday, when Smlthson
made the distance in 10 seconds flat, under
adverse conditions. Trine expects to have
Williams get that record some time and
somewhere this season.
Only one Oregon man has so far made
the record, and that is Smlthson, who did
It at Eugene last year, and duplicated It
the other day at Corvallis. During his
time at the University of Oregon, "Dad"
Trine brought six men into 10 1-5-second
records, each of whom with a little more
training were capable of a 10-second gait.
Among these wore Heater. Bishop, Kuy
kendall. Kelly and Overhoit. -Heater was
only beaten by a face by Cadigan. the
Callfornian. wnen the latter ran the 100
yards In 10 seconds fiat at Eugene several
years ago, that being the first and only
time the distance had ever been made In
10 seconds flat in Oregon until Smlthson
made it at Eugene last year.
With Williams and Smlthson In the
sprints, to say nothing of Grccnhaw. Gra
ham and Cathey, and a fairly well bal
anced team all along the line. Trine has
much at hand with which to give battle
to the Washington invaders. One of the
striking events will be a one-mile relay.
It Is not known what Washington has In
this event, but O. A. C. has anywhere
from four to six men who can do the
quarter necessary In good lively time. In
the recent meet with Columbia Univer
sity, the O. A. C. team ran a half-mile
relay in 1:35.
Washington Insists on elimination of the
50-yard dash, and Manager Stlmson Is con
tending for it. It Is said that Washington
In the course of negotiations admitted
that the O. A. C. would win It If It be
eliminated, the Oregon men will prob
ably suffer a loss of eight points, for both

and Slaughter's, the yearly freshets re
sult In filling: up the channel from three
to. six feet As a result almost con
tinual dredging Is required to maintain
the channel, and It Is for this reason
that Major Langfitt has constantly rec
ommended permanent improvements by
rncana of dikes and embankments. That
such Improvements are entirely success
ful has been demonstrated In the case
of St Helen's Bar, the channel of which
prior to the construction of the dike
was constanly filling up, and which
since has been kept clear, with prac
tically no work.

That the stage of the rivers In the
Northwest this year will be far below
the normal is now a foregone conclu
sion. The latest reports show that the
mountain snows, the origin of tho
Spring freshets, have been unusually
light this Winter, the snowfall in many
sectlonH of the Blue Mountains being
the smallest in 15 years, while In the
Cascades thero has been but half the
fall of the preceding Winter.
Under these conditions the river, with
an average rise of from 22 to 25 feet
each Summer, will hardly go up to the
15-foot mark. The conditions of this
year are almost Identical with those of
18S3. when but 17.S was registered, and
18S9, the lowest on record, 10. All in
dications point to a stage this year be
tween those two figures.
While on some parts of the. rivers
navigation will suffer to some extent.
the lack of the usual snows and water
will be felt more keenly in the irrlga
tlon and mining districts. The fall of
snow in the mountains during the Tat
ter part of March relieved the situation
in a degree, but not sufficient to meet
all the needs.
The low Summer stage of water will
not affect navigation below Portland,
nor will it be any serious hindrance
above the Willamette Falls. The depth
of river channels is figured on the ex
treme low-water stage and river com
merce operated on this basis. For this
reason, without even a one-foot rise
the usual river traffic would In no way
be Interrupted, and, as a matter of fact.
would be benefited by the absence of
any rise and a continuance of low-wa
ter conditions. The United States En
gineers Department, having In chargo
the improvement of the r'vers. from
continued observations of conditions on
the lower Columbia Rive:. Is of the
opinion that yearly deterioration of the
channel is largely due to the Spring
freshets. These floods carry with them
innumerable tons of sediment, which Is
deposited and piles up on the shoals.
and In the course of time obliterates the
old channel. This view Is sustained by
the fact that it is Invariably Immediate
ly after the Spring and Summer high
water that dredging becomes neces
sary, and that during what may be
called the low-water months, January,
February and March, there Is no ap
preiMable filling up of the channel. Were
It not for the Spring freshets there
would be no work required on the
channel aside from the small amount of
dredging necessary for the maintenance
of present conditions.
The Columbia River below Portland
has a 24-foot channel at low water.
This Is sufficient to care for the com
merce of the rix'er, but. In fact, the con
ditions of the tide increase this depth.
At low water In Portland the tide

While a Franco-American athlete

Hippodrome, he had a narrow escape
of losing: his life.
The Hon, while Its fo'repaws were on

SHOSHONE FOREST RESERVE
Land Which Senator Heyburn Protests Against Including in It.
VIEWS SHOWING BURNED AREA AND NEW TIMBER GROWTH IN
PROPOSED SHOSHONE RESERVE
ORBGONIAX NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, May 14. President Roosevelt Is
apparently not disposed to settle forest
reserve fights while he is on his hunting
trip. More than two weeks ago Senator
Heyburn forwarded to him a strong letter
of protest against the creation of a big
reserve in Shoshone County, in Northern
Idaho. In the same mall, Gifford Pln
chot. Chief of tho Forestry Bureau, sent
an equally forceful letter answering Mr.
Heyburn and pointing out why the reserve
should be created, and created at once.
That Is the last that has been heard of
the case. The President has not yet
made reply to either letter, and, as far as
is known here, has not given the case
The whole fight between Mr.- Heyburn
and Mr. Plnchot, so far as the Shoshone
reserve Is concerned, hinges on the char
acter of the land that has been tempo
rarily withdrawn. Mr. Heyburn insists
that much of it is valuable for agricul
ture. Mr. Plnchot says that not a bit ot
it is fit for farming, but on the contrary
it is rough, rugged, mountainous country,
about one-tenth timbered and nine-tenths
burned over. The President must decide
between Heyburn and Plnchot. and it Is
believed he will lake the side of the

enade (or what appears to be such) bearing

the Administration building; but to any one
looking backward trom the Sunken Gardens,
the Idea, might suggest lteit that "the course
of empire takes Its way" toward the Admin

ing tho effect of the stately structure.
Of course, we know that there will have to

wish to have our Fair remembered aa a apot
where art 1 combined With Nature to make a
picture so lovely that it leaves nothing to the

heart specific, they would pop
ulate a large city.
What a remarkable record

monument, composed of human
lives, that for which every
other earthly possession is sac
rificed. The Miles Medical Co. re
ceive thousands of letters from
these people like the following:
"I feel Indebted to the Dr. Miles'
Heart Cure for my life. I desire to call
the attentton of others suffering' as I
did to this remarkable remedy for the
heart. For a ions time I had suffered,
from shortness of breath after any
littla exertion, palpitation, of the heart;
and at times terrible pain In the region
of the heart, so serious that I feared
that I would some time drop dead upon
the street. One day I read one of your
circulars, and immediately went to
my druggist and purchased two bot
tles of the Heart Cure, and took: it
according to directions, with, the
result that I am entirely cured: Since
then I never miss an opportunity to
recommend this remedy to my friends
who have heart trouble: in, fact I am
a traveling advertteraent. for I ara
