COLUMBIA ARM INVESTMENT
COMPANY'S BIG SCHEME.
Xcw Corporation Plans to Make It
Railway Distributing: Point
for Entire State.
The Columbia Arm Investment Com
pany intends to ostabllsh a distribution
point for Oregon at the meeting place of
the O. R. &. N. and Northern Pacific
roads on the peninsula, and yesterday
filed articles of Incorporation in the
County Clerk's office. The officers of the
company are: Phil Metsohan, president;
F. W. Leadbettor, vice-president; J.
V. Beach, secretary: "William M. Killings
worth, manager. These persons,- with A.
A. Courteney, constitute the board of di
rectors. The capital stQck isi $65,000 and
has all been placed.
The company has secured 100 acres and
a 1500-foot frontage on Columbia Slougn,
and on the line of the Portland Railway
Company, and plans to make tills the
distributing point for the entire state. It
is the first point where the Hfll and Har
rlman lines will meet after entering Ore
gon. Seven miles will be saved each way
by making this the distributing point, in
stead of having the freight trains running
on into Portland.
The small strip of ground will be im
proved, and while it will never be a city
like New York, an ordinary city will be
compelled to utilize the ground.
The O. R. & N. lias already secured a
right of way through this very property,
and when the Hill road bridges the Co
lumbia this is the first point it will strike.

how to go about It.
"There are more ways of killing a cat
than skinning It." she said, "and you will
find that there aro more ways than one of
converting a man to the equal suffrage
question. If you women of the W. C. T.
U. want to accomplish tho good you have
set out to do you will have to have the
assistance of the ballot you know that

Most satisfactory have been the results
obtained during tho first year of the
open-air tuberculosis sanitarium south of
the city. The anniversary was passed
yesterday, and the records kept of various
cases which were treated tend to estab
lish the Institution as a success. More
over, the claims of Western Oregon to
unequaled advantages from the stand
point of health are vcrifled. The Idea
that a molsturc-Iadcn atmosphere is not
conducive to the welfare of consumptive
patients appears to have lost color and
new ideas concerning tho treatment of
this baffling aliment seem to have gained
According to the first annual report,
which Is being complied by Dr. . A.
Pierce, recently appointed In charge of
the sanitarium, a total of 134 patients
have been treated since the camp was
established. Of this number. "0 improve
ments have been noted. Some of this
number have declared themselves cured,
although, ns to the permanency of the
benefit no estimate, of course, can be
At present there are 19 patients re
ceiving treatment. Seventeen new cases
have been admitted since November 1.
Of these, three were discharged us too
far advanced to be susceptible to treat
ment; one died, and the remaining cases
have been showing a gradual improve

The present tent capacity Is -10 persons.
Of the 19 now there, ten are males and
nine females. The camp Is in immediate
charge of Miss Katherine McNamara.
How Treatment Is Given.
The elements depended upon for bene
fits to the sufferers arc: Life in the
open, rest, particularly during fever
stages, and as much food as it is pos
sible to consume. Six meals are served
dally. The open air Is found to give the
most delicate Invalids a hearty appetite. 1
Dr. Pierce was reluctant In discussing
the affairs of the camp, but when urged
for a statement said:
"The sanitarium has established that
Western Oregon climate is most desirable
for those seeking health. There is a
class of people that think the moisture
and slight elevation of this region are
not adapted to the treatment of tubercu
losis. This is an erroneous impression.
In Germany it is the cast winds that
are most feared, because they pass over
the arid lands and are rendered dry,
piercing, irritating and often dust-laden.
The same conditions apply to our own
arid regions. Western Oregon is free of
this. The temperature changes are not
marked or violent: the altitude Is not
great enough to render one more liable
to hemorrhages. The balmy, moisture
laden air Is beneficial. Air Is never pur
.er than during, or immediately after, a
rain or snow storm.
"Rain, snow and cold are not objec
tionable features to the open-air treat
ment of tuberculosis. A series of lec
tures have been delivered lately in New
York with the idea of advising people
against sending sufferers away from home
climate. The time Is near at hand when
each state will vie with Its neighbors in
the maintenance of tuberculosis sanl
toria. "Regarding the cases which have been
treated here, many patients have been
taken who were too far advanced In the
disease for successful treatment. The
case where death ensued came from Cen
tralia. Wash., and the patient was in such
condition that he died two days after his
arrival. To render the open-air treat
ment most effective the disease must be
coped with In Its earlier stages."
Files Amended Complaint.

complaint in his suit against Clara E.
Morey, executrix of the will of P. F.
Morey, deceased, to recovpr 316,300,

General Electric Company stock.

have returned It, but died July 7, 190-!,
without having: done so. Mr. Thompson
presented the claim to Mrs. Morey aa
executrix and she rejected It.
