minutes and his lungs partially filled
with water and sand. He lingered un
til Monday afternoon.

staving with friends in this city. A
cablegram this morning to Captain D.

better known to Alaskans.

Local Management Makes Arrange
ments for Interesting Races
and Superb Exhibit.
Arrangements to take care of ap
proximately 100,000 people for the first
annual harness horse meet and Paclflo
National Livestock Show, during the
week of September 21-26. are being
made. The various committees of the
Country Club and Livestock Associa
tion which submitted their reports at
the postponed meeting of the directors
yesterday afternoon declared that the
general programme as planned together
with the incidentals and feature attrac
tions which will be offered should sure
ly attract a daily attendance of not un
der 18,000 as an average.
The attendance at last year's State
Fair at Salem was more than 10.000, and
the state capital has net the local popu
lation nor the central location of Port
land to draw the crowds from the many
livestock centers of the Northwest. For
this reason, the local management fig
ures that the first exposition here
should register a much larger attend
ance than Salem did last year.
One of the most trying situations
which the management will have to
face is the fact that the entries in the
different divisions In Ihe livestock
show are swamping the association,
and that unless a limit is placed on the
number of nominations in the various
classes there will be no space to ac
commodate the late entries. It was es
timated at yesterday afternoon's meet
ing that the 12 snow barns would. take
care of close to 3000 head of livestock
in the main divisions, horses, cattle,
sheep and swine, but the entries so far
recorded are hut little under that num
ber. The only alternative will be to
close the entries before the time al
ready specified or else erect temporary
canvas pavilions to furnish quarters
for the over-supply of sto-;k.
It was stated that the live
stock show here would embrace
close to 20 per cent hi excess
of the number of entries filed
with the State Fair management for
the reason that many Washington
points are sending their exhibits here
without routing them to Salem, th.
next preceding point in the big North
Pacific Fair circuit.
.... Tnitns arrived yesterday
and will be Installed today. These are
novel mechanical devices which do
away with having gatemen and ticket
takers, and the five turnstiles are sup
posed to be able to handle the crowds
much faster than a similar number of
employes at the entrances. All that
will be needed will be two or three
young women to make the proper
change and the turnstiles will do the
rest, registering the admissions not
only at the gate but In the general
F. O. Downing, chairman of the gen
eral management committee, reported
that a goodly number of privileges and
concessions had already been contract
ed for and that his Office Is flooded
with informal bids for various privi
leges. It was decided to leave it en
tirely to Mr. Downing's committee to
select and arrange for all accommoda
tions and comforts which might tend
to please the public No effort will be
made to put the concessions on a
money-making basis this year. Only
such as are absolutely necessary for
the convenience of the crowds will- be

RESISTS PAYING TUXES
& N. CO. FILES SUIT IX
Allegation Is Made That $2C,000
Taxes ou 16,000,000 or Money,
Notes and Accounts Illegal.
Contending that the action ot the
County Board of Equalisation in up
holding the 229,000 tax assessment of its
money, notes and accounts was Illegal,
the O. R. & N. Company, through Its
attorney, will 'file suit in the State Cir
cuit Court today to have that decision
set aside. The company will endeavor to
have the tax reduced to $9000, it being ad
mitted that at the time of the assessment
the company had JS0O.000 ot taxable prop
erty. Should the case go against the rail
road company, it will be compelled to
pay not only the 229,O0O taxes, but 30.000
additional as penalty, and the nre'
which has accrued during the months it
has remained unpaid. Assessor Sigler
valued the money, notes and accounts of
the company at $16,800,000.
After the Board of Equalisation had
listened to testimony to the effect that
this large surplus was not taxable be
cause it belonged to fe .Union Pacific
Company, Instead of the O. R. & N.. and
was being expended in building new
roads, it confirmed Mr. Slglera assess

SUIT OVER STREET CONTRACT
Property-Owners Protest Over Cost
of Fill on East Washington.
Whether the contractors, who made the
East Washington-street fill, between East
Water street and Union avenue, charged
an exorbitant price when they fixed their
rate at 40 cents a yard, or whether that
is reasonable for the work done, is the
question which is at issue before a Jury
in Judge Bronaugh'a department of, the
Circuit Court. It is the contention of Not
tingham & Co.. and of Joseph Paquet
that 25 cent's a yard is a reasonable price.
The City Council advertised for bids for
the work, and accepted that of the Pa
ciflo Bridge Company.
Testimony taken yesterday by the city
showed that ell the property-owners on
each side of the street have paid their as
sessments, with the exception of the
One of yesterday's witnesses was
Whitney L. Boise. He said that the

that three lots sold by the Hawthorne
estate before the fill was made, are now
worth between Smo end SS000 each.
