Oregon Water Power & Railway Company
Is completing extensive bunkers for
crushed rock at a cost of over J10.000 on
the terminal grounds south of Hawthorne
avenue. There will be a succession of
elevated bins for the different sizes of
crushed rocks, beginning to the south side
of the grounds and extending northward
a distance of about E00 feet. First there
Is a long trestle and upon this comes the
rock bins in series. Double tracks run
over the tops of these bins so that the
crushed rock is dropped down to them.
"Wagons may take the gravel from the
lower sides and will be driven under the
tier of rock bins. The rock comes from
the crusher located at Estacada. This
material is being used quite generally on

Rev. M. A. Qulnlan, president of the Co
lumbia University, has gone to Xotre
Dame, Ind., to attend a conference with
the heads of other colleges under the di
rection of the Congregation of the Holy
Cross. On the result of this conference
will depend whether a dormitory costing
upward of 5100,000 will be erected on the
college campus this year. Dr. J. H.
Zahm, who "visited the college a year ago,
then said that this building would cer
tainly be erected, but owing to a tire
which destroyed another college structure
its erection had to be given up for the
time. Increased attendance necessitates
its erection in the near future.
There's a dollar at each end of a mil
lion and the first one Is the hardest and
biggest. That Jt is the duty of every
working man and woman to save a little

necessary to arguo about It. Nobody is
always going to be young and strong and
healthy. Old age and sickness and bad

Letter from the Packers to the Board of
To the Honorable, the Board of Health
of the City of Portland: We respectfully
call your attention to.tho late ordinance
governing the inspection of meats shipped
to this city, and which. It is understood.
Interested parties, such as commission
men, have, or are about to apply to the
Mayor nd City Council, to have can
celed. We would respectfully request you
to use your best influence to prevent the
repeal of this ordinance, until it has had
a fair trial of at least six months In oper
ation; when. If the ordinance proves to
he a bad one. It may easily be repealed,
and If a good one It should be allowed to
stand, for the following reasons:
First, you can readily see that the pub
lic only Is benefited bj inspection, being
protected from the use of animals for food
that arc diseased with tuberculosis, lump
Jaw. pregnancy and Innumerable other
Second, all animal shipped In from the
country are exposed to the dust of the
street, cinders and smoke from the rail
road, and last, but not least, are thrown
down on the sidewalk In front of the com
mission houses, exposed to the sun, blue
files and passing dogs. No one has a right
to say to those merchants that this meat
Is out of condition, and so It is offered for
saie.to the mgnest bidder.
We have heard no real protests against
city Inspection except from commission
merchants, dairymen and swill feeders,
who are1 affected like a soapmaker In the
Mississippi Valley, who proposed to test
the validity of a state law which prevent
ed him from bringing hogs that had died
from cholera In different parts of the
state to his plant, because the law affect
ed his profits In the business. He did not
seem to care how much the disease was
spread, or how much loss he caused his
nolghbors to suffer, only that he mleht
make a profit to himself.
It seems strange that so weak a defense
should be put up by the Front-street mer
chants, as none of them has invested a
dollar in refrigeration. Inspection or deliv
ery. Their main cry Is that inspection Is
burdensome to the butcher, when, as a"
matter of face, the butcher Is not bur
dened at all. does not have to turn his
hand over, and Is not put to a loss If a
carcass is condemned.
City swill feeders are affected, because
hogs fed In thU manner seldom mature
without some disease setting in. and as
soon as hogs show any signs of approach
ing death by cholera or the plagse they
arc killed and brought to town In the
early morning and disposed of to the high
Next Is the dairyman with the bob calf,
which has never had more than one or
two square meals because milk is scarce,
or occasionally a cow has milk fever or
becomes fevered from over-feeding. It is
convenient to kill and dispose of such ani
mals for food without any questions being
You might as well ask a blacksmith to
perform an operation for appendicitis In
tils shop as to ask a Front-street mer
chant to diagnose the diseases of animals
after ll the Inner organs have been sev
ered from the carcass.
The real question Is. Shall we have
meat inspection oT a first-class order and
protect the public against diseased meats,
or whether we shall advertise Portland
as the only city In the United States
where diseased animals can be sold with
out restriction. This Is the question for
your honorable body to decide.

dropped hints of the good things that are
to come, while President Hclllg smiled

who Is mounting the ladder of theatrical
prominence with unfaltering steps. As her

.all Western actors and actresses, there
has been secured a particularly strong
bill from the pen of Paul Armstrong,

was taken off the boards after a short

Aside from these successful arrange
ments for Miss Roberts' tour. President
Heillg and Manager Cort have secured
for Portland people a list of attractions
for next season that will eclipse anything

cast and excellent chorus: "The Prince
of Pilsen" and others.
George Ade's great New York hucc&s?

to Portland with the original New York
company, as will Ade's "County Chair

another New York success; and Blanche

Other Features Secured.

to star, and Dockstader's Minstrels.-
By taking 10 theaters from the list of
those In charge of the Northwestern
Theatrical Association and adding them
to the Middle Western circuit, a 0-week
wheel of burlesque has been established,
and Ihrough this means Portlandcrs will
be treated to 40 weeks of burlesque, which
will begin September 1. at the Baker
Theater. This will bring to Portland 40
different burlesque companies, the came
as travel through the East and Middle
West, with first-class productions. Later
In the season Messrs. Cort and Hellig
will have other surprises .In store for
local theater-goers. President Heillg Is
of the opinion that Portland is entitled
to the best obtainable and has not
stopped at expense to bring extensive
productions to this city.

Higher Pay for Firemen.
This afternoon the City Council will
held a special session for the considera
tion of a mass of accumulated business.
In the course of which the question of the
Increase in the pay of the Fire Depart
ment will cut an important figure.
Upon two separate occasions recently
the Executive Board has referred the
matter of Increase to the .Council with a
favorable recommendation, and It Is
known also that Mayor Williams is dis
posed to sign an ordinance to that effect.
These contemplate placing, the Chjef and
subordinate officers upon the same salary
basis as those of the Police Department:
while the rank and file will be Increased
at the following ratio: First six months
of service. m a month; second six months.
170; third six months. TTu, which is to re
main the maximum amount of salary

country of approximately the same popu-
iauon as .Portland that pay their Fire

The Baker's Week of Fun.
Today Joe Flynn, known far and wide
as the greatest comedian of the vaudeville
world, will make his Initial bow to Port
land at the head of the Baker Theater's
new feature-comedy bill. Flynn Is the
sort of comedian that convulses bis audi
ences with every move he makes, and
there are very few men In the world with
his power of bringing out laughter. He
is the highest-priced single act on the
vaudeville boards. The rest of the bill
Is made up of star performers. The three
De Graus. in their acrobatic comedy,
"Foxy Grandpa and the Three Bad Boys,"
combine difficult acrobatic feats and hu
mor in clever fashion. Lorraine and How
ell have another funny and novel act, and
Harry Newman, the eccentric English
comedian, completes the funniest show of
the season. Jean Wilson Is at his best In
a new illustrated ballad, and there Is the
usual new scries of catchy moving pic
tures on the olograph- The bill will con
tinue through the week, with three per
formances dally, at 2:30, 7:30 and 9 P.M.
Starting with the matinee today, the
Grand has another splendid bill, headed
by the Great Tatum. who is probably the
most marvelous performer we have had
during the season. Everything he does Is
of the most mystifying nature, and his
act is intensely interesting. Shone, a
talented young baritone from Chicago,
makes his first appearance this week In
the Illustrated song. .The Gottlobs in a
quaint little sketch 'under the title of
"Government Bonds" are worthy of spe
cial mention. The La Vails have a most
elaborate act with beautiful costumes and
stage settings. The Haezllt Trio are
clever children who are well trained.
Fisher and Johnson do some daring tricks

The state primaries will be held next
April "for the purpose," says the law,
"of choosing candidates by the political
parties, subject to the provision of this
law. for Senr.tor In Congress and all other
elective state, district, county, precinct,
city, ward, and all other officers and dele
gates to any constitutional convention or
conventions that may hereafter be called,
who are to be chosen at the ensuing
election wholly by electors within this
state or any subdivision of this state, and
also for choosing and electing the county
central committeemen by the several par
ities subject to the provisions of this law."
The aim of the law is to take the choos
ing of United States Senators away from
legislatures and give It to the people. But
since popular election of United States
Senators cannot be effected without an
amendment of the National Constitution
to that effect, the direct primary law
offers a plan for nomination of party
candidates for Senator by the people. In
tending that members of the legislature
In electing a Senator shall ratify the will
of the people, as expressed at the pri
maries. A law with this purpose In view was
enacted by the legislature In 1S01. pro
viding that "the names of all candidates
for the office of Senator in Congress"
should be placed on the ballot In state
elections: that each house of the legis
lature should canvass the votes "and
announce the candidate for Senator hav
ing the highest number and thereupon
the house shall proceed to the election of
a Senator as required by the act of Con
gress and the Constitution of the State."
Ignored Law in 1903.
But when the legislature met In 1903 the
two houses Ignored that law. Inasmuch
as It had no binding legal force and pro
ceeded "to the election of a Senator as
required by the act of Congress and the
Constitution of the State" the usuaLf
The direct primary law has no more
binding force on the legislature In the
election of Senator than had the law of
1501. and the members may vote as they
please, except that they are likely to feel
obliged by promises to their constituents
to vote for the primary nominees for
Senator. It is common gossip In political
circles that candidates for legislative
nominations. In order to win votes in
next April's primaries will promise to
vote for the "people's nominees" for
If several Republicans should run for
the Republican nomination and only one
Democrat It Is quite possible that the
one Democrat would receive more popu
lar votes than the Republican who should
win the Republican nomination. Would
the Democrat then be the "people's nomi
nee?" Only one of them because the pur
pose of the direct primary law is the
selection of a nominee by each party.
That Multnomah Republicans should
name the next Senator Is the ruling senti
ment In this County. A Multnomah man
now holds the office John H. Mitchell.
Since the men whom this county will put
forward will have to make a campaign
before the people, doubt has been ex
pressed that the men of the class desired
will enter tho race. Should only one
Multnomah aspirant come forward the
chances of his nomination would be fa
vorable because of the large vote he
would receive In this county and the
probably scattered vote of his rivals In
other counties. This power of big coun
ties In controlling nominations for all
state offices has made aspirants from
small counties anxious and has caused
politicians jn big counties like Multnomah
and Marion to fear that the Inevitable
effect of the direct primary law will
be to give big counties too many nomi
nations and to endanger the success of
the ticket throughout the state.
