Culmination of Work Comes
WILL' -ELECT OFFICERS
Frank P. Hill, Librarian of Brook
lyn Public Library, to Be Chosen
President of Association
The culmination of the week's csslon
01 the American Library Association
comes today in the popular meetings. All
week the business' of the convention has
been transacted in systematic order and
liow all but the election of officers, a
perfunctory act, is done.
Of the things of greatest Interest to
the public, the matter of children's
libraries comes first, and the woman
who is most closely connected with this
phase of library -work,' Mies Frances J.
Alcott. of the Carnegie .library, Pittsburg,
will bo leading speaker. This will be
at the morning session in the Unitarian
Church, Seventh and Yamhill. The other
discussion at this .session, that of a
trained library service, Is of more inter
est to the craft than to the general public.
jt the evening session, the last. Dr.
Melvll Dewey, of the New York State
library, recognized by his fellows as the
father of almost every movement which
has tended toward the sproad and bet
terment of libraries, will speak on the
timely topic of unity and co-operation In
library work. John Cotton Dana, of the
public library In Newark. X. J., a gifted
speaker, will follow the discussion of yes
terday by speaking on what state and
local library associations can do for
library Interests. Dr. Theodore "W. Koch.,
of the University of Michigan library,
will follow with a collection of sterepptl
con views of Carnegie libraries, and then
Dr. Ernest C. Richardson, librarian of
the Princeton University library, will
step out of the presidential chair and
will he succeeded by Frank P. Hill,
librarian of the Brooklyn public library.
Yesterday's sessions were confined al
most exclusively to the question of state
library associations. In Its various
phases. State commissions were chiefly
in discussion and the leading address was
at the morning session when Henry E.
Legler. of Wisconsin, spoke. As outlined
by him and the other speakers the state
library commissions are mostly not over
half a dozen years old and their purpose
Is to aid smaller communities to estab
lish libraries. This has been done in the
first instance by the use of traveling
libraries, which have become quite com
mon In the Northern States. In Wiscon
sin, as Mr. Legler pointed out. there are
teams which make regular trips at spe
cified times to carry these small, port
able libraries of CO books or so.
The problems regarding state libraries,
especially, seem to be Innumerable, and
took up" long hours of discussion during
the afternoon and evening.
At the business meeting of the chil
dren's librarian Section; Miss A. H. Jack
son, of the Carnegie library In Pittsburg,
was elected president and Mrs. T. J.
TIeaton. of the Washington public library
There is no opposition ticket to the one
proposal by the nominating committee
of the American Library Association, but
there, have' been seven nominations for
the council and there are only five posi
tions, and there will be some electioneer
ing there. f
OREGON WELL ADVERTISED
LITERATURE DISTRIBUTED IX
ALL THE STATES.
What the Oregon Railway and Navi
gation Company IS Doing to
Just at this time, whon people of the
rest of the continent are coming to
Oregon In such large numbers, it is of
interest to note the large part that the
railroads have played in turning atten
tion this way. During the month of
June the advertising office of the O. R.
5L- N. passenger department mailed 42,
0S2 pieces of literature and during- May
almost equaled the number, sending
37.076. "When It is taken into consid
eration that a very large number of
these documents are in response to in
quiries from all over the world, there
is reason to suppose that the fame of
the Oregon country is more general
and widespread than ever before.
Publications issued within a few
months total In numbers more than a
quarter-million copies, and new book
lets, folders and othor literature of a
character to attract favorable consid
eration of the Northwest as a desirable
residence section of the country is be
ing constantly prepared by It. M. Hall,
advertising agent, whose compilations
are made under supervision of A. L.
Craig, general passenger agent of the
system. "Oregon. "Washington, Idaho
and Their Resources." containing 100
pages of descriptive and statistical In
formation and a map of the Northwest,
is Issued in an edition of fiO.OOO copies
this year, and it is already apparent
the demand will exhaust the edition
very early. "Restful Recreation Re
sorts," as its title Indicates, tells the
city resident, weuried of dust and
sounds, how to reach inviting shade of
primeval forests; dashing mountain
streams in which rainbow trout dis
port in sparkling waters; describes
the charm of a Columbia River steam
boat ride, and makes the reader long
for pleasures of beach sands and music
of the waves. The 190S edition of this
Summer booklet, recently Issued, Is
50,000 copies, and Is one of the most
attractive publications of its kind seen
this year. Another 50.000 edition is
the lithograph folder, also issued as a
wall map. showing the Columbia River
through the Cascade Mountains to the
Pacific Ocean, among the most instruc
tive publications to make clear to
strangers the topography of the region
tributary to Portland.
""What Farmers Have Done" is a
collection of facts from the experience
of men who have been successful in
various branches of agricultural pur
suits, fruit culture and stockgrowing.
It should be stated that this folder is

Mayor's Purpose Regarding

Tells What He Will Do It Ho Can
"Get His Claws on Them"
by Any Legal
"If I can get my claws on them. I am
going to nail them." said Mayor Lane
yesterday, when asked what action he
proposed taking with reference to the
Milwaukie gambling fraternity. "My le
gal advisers are investigating the matter
now," ho continued, "and If they decide
that I bave any jurisdiction under the
section of the city charter that presumes
to give the Mayor and Chief of Police nf
Portland authority ovr gambling games
within a radius of four miles of the cor
porate limits, I am going to proceed ac
cordingly, but otherwise I shall let the
thing alone, as I do not believe in 'but
"I understand th Attorney-General has
expressed the opinion that I have no
jurisdiction, and that his conclusions arc
concurred In by District Attorney Man
ning and City Attorney McNary. How
ever, I shall sift It to the bottom, and If
there is any chance for me to get hokl
of them legally. I am going to do so."
In response to the inquiry If there was
not a state law against the system of
gambling in vogue at Milwaukie, and if
he could not proceed as a citizen to close
up the games, the Mayor replied that he
had his hands full at home as much as
he could do. m fact, to mind his own
business and he did not propose to hunt
for trouble on the outside.
The Chief of Police was yesterday di
rected by the Mayor to Instruct the mem
bers of his force. Irrespective of rank, to
do away with the habit of wearing whlto
gloves while on duty.
"I mas be shy on Latin, but I am long
on Chinook." said he, "and have adopted
as my motto. 'Hlyu work, halo airs,'
which, interpreted Into North American,
means, 'lots of work and no style. "
Heretofore the Executive Board has
opened Its sessions every Friday at 4
o clock, but commencing with this after
noon the Mayor proposes to establish an
Innovation by making 2:30 P. M. the offi
cial hour for assembling. This new order
of things was hailed with delight by those
around the City Hall, as the hour for
meeting under the preceding administra
tion was anything but popular on account
of its lateness.
The Council chamber has also been de
cided on as the meeting place of the Ex
ecutive Board, in future, instead of the
cramped quarters adjoining the Mayor's
office, and this likewise Is considered a

Speech of Presentation.
Mn. Eva Emery Dye, of Oregon City,
president of the Sacajawea Statue Asso
ciation, delivered the speech of presenta
tion. As she closed her remarks, a hush
fell over the vast audience. She mo
tioned to Mrs. Edna Snook, of Coqullle,
who gave the cord a hearty tug, which
swept away the Immense American flag,
disclosing the beautiful bronze statue of
Sacajawea. Almost simultaneously tho
crowd broke Into a deafening cheer amid
the strains of "America." It was sev
eral minute beforo tho cheering sub
nlded sufficiently to allow tho continua
tion of the ceremonies. Mrs. Dye,' In de
livering the presentation address, spoke
"Dmx femina fact!" "A woman led the

of Miss Alice Cooper, of Denver, and

indebted for $500 for tho pedestal on
which It will rest.
The flag In which the statue had

Garlin Hill, of Independence. Miss Hill
represented the Lewis and Clark Club
that raised the most money to secure
the statue. In accepting the flag-,
which was presented to her by Mrs.
Snook, who unveiled the statue. Miss
Hill said in part:
"The real value of this particular

paratively small, but the representa
tive value. Infinitely large, measured
only by the history of the heroism and
suffering, the trials nnd triumphs of
that noble, daring Indian maiden whose
name and fame are immortal in the
annals of our country. Truly proud
and happy are we of Independence that
the honor of receiving this emblem of
glory should come to us."

TELEGRAPHY IN ALASKA
GENERAL GKEELY TELLS OP
EXTENT OF LINES.
"Wireless System Proves ji Great Suc
cess In the Far Northern.
Brigadier-General A. VT- Greely.
chief signal officer of the United States
Army, who has been visiting In Port
land for tho past few days, left "Wednes
day night for Seattle, where he will
remain until Tuesday next, when he
will aall on the steamship Humboldt
for tSkagway. After landing In the
northern port. General Greely will cross
."Whlto Pass, travel down the Yukon to
St. Michael, and return about Septem
ber 15 by way of Nome.
The particular reason for General
Greely's extended visit to Alaska this
Summer Is a desire to Inspect the Gov
ernment telegraph lines hat have bean
put-Into operation by this branch of
tho War Department. These lines are
more than 4000 miles long, nnd bring
all of the populated part3 of the terri
tory Into communication with one an
other. "Comparatively few persons have any
Idea of the extent of our lines In
Alaska." said General Greely last night
"We have more than enough to reach
from here to Boston., and, they, are all
In perfect working order.
"One of the most Interesting sec
tions of the line fs that between St
Michael and Nome, via Safety Harbor.
Over 307 miles of this distance we ope
rate the most successful, wireless sys
tem in the world. During the month
of May we received in tolls $13,500. and
every day 600D words of comr-'.erclal
messages are sent between the two
points. This not only gives some Idea of
the capacity of the system, but also of
the rapidly increasing commerce of
that part of the territory.
"It 1b a remarkable fact that during
the time we' have "operated the wireless,
not a single mistake has been traced
to the system. The Instruments work
to perfection, and the rates charged
are comparatively low.
-Of our total mileage, a little over
half Is cable, operating between Seat
tle, Sitka, Skagway and Valdez. This
line brings all principal ports Into con
nection with the United States, while
land lines run into the Yukon" country
from Valdez, to such points as Eagle
City and St. Michael.
"There Is another means of com
munication from Skagway to Eagle
City, or as It is otherwise known. Fort

railroad lines over "White Pass and the
Canadian government lines down the
"It can easily be seen that we have
a system that covers the territory In
excellent shape, and furthermore, it
is all In working order, and Is conse
quently of the highest use to the citi
zens of Alaska."
