Portland Camp Wins Drill.
Portland Camp. No. 107, won the com
petitive drill of the Woodmen of the
World at the Exposition yesterday. The
other teams that entered in the contest
were Prosperity Camp, No. JSC. and Pros
pect Camp, No. 140. of Portland; Newborg
Camp, No. 113, and Oregon City Camp.
.There were four prizes $150 for first place,
575 for recond place, 525 for third place,
and a silver trophj cup for the fourth
place. The prizes were provided by the
Pacific jurisdiction of the Woodmen of the
World. Portland Camp was first with 9S
points, Oregon City Camp second with 9i
points. Prosperity Camp third with 7S
points, Newberg Camp fourth with 74
points, and Prospect Camp fifth with 73
Captain J. B. Gowen, Captain Ingram
and Lieutenant Brown, of the Tenth
United States Infantry, stationed on Gov
ernment Island, at the Exposition, acted
as judges of the competing teams. Their
decision was very satisfactory, the abso-

Committee, Woodmen Day.
lute fairness of it being unquestioned.
This is the first time that United States
Army officers have acted as judges of the
drills participated in by the Oregon teams
of the Woodmen of the World. Hereto
fore the officers of the Oregon National
Guard have always acted as judges.
Lieutenant A. M. Brown, of the Oregon
National Guard, Is captain of the Portland
Camp, which won the first prize at the
contest yesterday. The three teams from
the Portland lodges drilled at night, and
the teams from the Newberg and Oregon
City Camps drilled in the afternoon, Im
mediately after the exercises which were
held in the Auditorium. All of the teams
are excellently drilled, and executed evo
lutions and movements that even surprised
the three Army officers who officiated as
judges. The drlllls wore witnessed by
hundreds of people, and the five teams
were given hearty ovations. There has
been considerable rivalry between tho
teams of the Portland, Prosperity and
Prospect Camps over the excellence of
their drill teams.

E. H. Harrlman, the great railroad mag
nate, head of the Union Pacific, Southern
Pacific system and of trans-Pacific and
Pacific Coast steamship companies, has
changed his route to San Francisco slnco
the announcement was made from Chi
cago a few days aco. and Is on the way
from Yellowstone Park to Portland, byt
way of Seattle. Today It Is understood
that Mr. Harriman and his party will
make the trip from Seattle to Portland,
after making only very brief stops on
Puget Sound, arriving here this evening.
This visit of. the president of the South
ern Pacific and Oregon Railroad & Navi
gation Companies will be a complete sur
prise to Portland business bodies and
commercial Interests. There is no other
one Individual whoso power is so great
to aid in the development of Oregon that
is now so well assured by reason of the
large Influx" of people from more popu
lous sections of the country this year,
nwiy of whom come as visitors now, but
seeking opportunity for future locations.
Recent announcements of railroad build
ing for the immealate future aggregating
Investment of approximately 59,000,000 In
Oregon and Idaho, to which it is expect
ed that the extension of th,e Columbia
Southern will Immediately be added, rep
resenting an additional investment of per
haps $2,000,000, make this an opportune
time for Mr. Harrlman to make a visit
Mr. Harrlman, it is reported, is on his
way to the Philippines, to sail from San
Francisco about the middle of this
month, the intervening time to be spent
In looking- over his interests on the Pa
cific Coast. J. C Stubbs. traffic director
of the Harrlman system, arrived from the
East last evening, occupying his private
car, attached to the O. R. & N. through
train, having been preceded by P. C.
Stohr, assistant traffic director, who
spent yesterday in conference with local
traffic officials of the Northwestern lines.
General Manager O'Brien returned last
night from a trip over the Southern Pa
cific Oregon lines, having traveled over
the entire main line to Ashland In the
past three days, making stops at the
more important places.
The coming of the high traffic officials
is said to have been for the purpose of
meeting Mr. Harrlman here and accom
panying him on the trip from Portland
to San Francisco. No Information was
to be bijd concerning the itinerary of Mr.
Harriman, or how long he will remain
in Portland, last night, but it Is sur
mised tnat, as considerable time inter
venes before the sailing date of the
steamer for the Orient, he may remain
for a day or two.
Simultaneously with the c6mlng of this
party, it is announced that Louis W.
Hill, vice-president of the Great North
ern, and an official of several other Hill
lines, accompanied by Darius Miller, vice
president of the Burlington; Benjamin
Campbell, traffic manager of the Great
Northern, and a party, are also en route
to Portland from Spokane.
Traffic Manager Woodworth. of the
Northern Pacmc. accompanied by several
of the freight department officials of the
Western division of that system, has

Law Rulings Anticipated.
Judge Frazer will this morning- decido
the case of Elizabeth Ryan against tho
Multnomah Fair Association, in the
matter of the demurrer to the com

injunction. In this case an injunction
is asked restraining" the sale of pools
at the Irvlngton racetrack.
A decision will also be rendered by
Judge Frazer on the petition of Charles
J. Murray, a ticket broker, for a writ
of habeas corpus. The court In this caso
will pass upon the constitutionality of
the anti-ticket scalping- law. The at
torneys for Murray have submitted
many autnorlties to show that the act
is unjust and creates a monopoly In
favor of the railroad companies, and
the attorneys for the latter have argued
that the law is good and that similar
acts have been sustained in other
