TO BE PROTECTED
City Officials Outline Policy of
Adding Equipment for
TRIP OF INSPECTION MADE
After Watching Crew of George H.
Williams at Work, Major Declares
Second Vessel Xot Necessary
for Safety of Waterfront.
Mavor Simon, Messrs. O-Shea, Connell
nd Pier, comprising the Executive
Board fire committee, and Fire Chief
Campbell traveled miles In an auto
mobile yesterday afternoon, Inspecting
fire stations and viewing proposed sites
for new houses. Completing the trip at
6 P. M., the official party witnessed a
drill by the crew of the flreboat, George
H Williams, wMch was executed with
sruch efficiency that the Mayor after
wards announced that he considered It
unnecessary to construct another vessel
for protection of the waterfront. The
.present one. he said, moves so rapidly
and so well trained are the men In
charse that the districts along the river
are well protected.
All of the members of the official party
congratulated Chief Campbell and his
men upon the manner in which they
went through the drills. They first
escorted Mayor Simon and the committee
through the boat, explaining the details,
after which the crew took the vessel out
Into the harbor and pumped six large
streams of water to give an idea of tlie
power of the pumps. From the time
the gong sounded until the "Williams was
moving out of her berth at the foot of
East Washington street, 30 seconds
elapsed- This, to the Mayor and mem
bers of the committee, was apparent
Thinks One Boat Sufficient. ;
"After witnessing the drill." said the
.Mayor upon returning to the City Hall.
-I must say that boat Is all right, and
I do not see the necessity for another:
3 think the waterfront is very well pro
tected as It is. ana wo n-u
money for an additional boat."
The trip was taken In order that the
Mayor and members of the fire com
mittee might have personal knowledge of
the conditions that necessitate additional
engine-houses In various sections of the
city, and at its close, all expressed them
selves as very much surprised at the re
markable growth of every section visited,
rrhey will proceed as rapidly as pos
sible with the work of constructing the
ivew stations, preparatory to furnishing
adequate fire protection in the needy dis
tricts. The first site visited was at Third and
Gltsan streets, in the large wholesale
district. At this point It Is said there Is
greater need for fire protection than at
any other in Portland, owing to the vast
Interests that center in the neighborhood.
It IS proposed to install a flrst-class
metropolitan engine and a watertower
at this place. The engine is already here
and the tower will be ordered later.
Owing to the fact that the new O. R.
A N. bridge is to rest on the West Side
Bt the site of the projected house. Chief
Campbell was directed to ascertain how
trouble and interference from this source
may be avoided. The administration will
fcuild this house as rapidly as possible.
Mayor Meets His Namesake,
From Third and Gltsan streets, the
party went to Fourteenth and Mont
gomery, where they looked at the site
that has been purchased and upon which
will be built at once an engine-house.
They then rode to engine No. 10, at Ful
ton, on the Macadam road, where they
Inspected the house, the aparatus and
(horses. Mayor Simon was greatly sur
prised to learn that one of the animals
Is named "Joseph Simon." The name
sake was brought forth from its stall,
and the Mavor remarked that It "must
fee a sensible horse." He said he might
rend It a loving cup later. Chief Camp
bell intends to Install In this house one
of two-third sized engines soon to be
purchased, and this will give the vicinity
ialrly good protection.
Crossing the Willamette P.lver on the
ferryboat Copies, the party proceeded to
hose No. 4, Sllwood, and inspected the
yremlsea. This place also Is to re
reive the additional aparatus of one-third
lzed engine when the two are bought,
and will be sufficient to protect the dis
trict for a time. The water pressure In
this district is very poor, and the Mayor
and membej-s of the committee will prob
ably endeavor to remedy this situation,
through the assistance of the Water
Hoard. It will require enlarged mains.
A site at Francis avenue and East
Thirty-fourth streets was next visited.
This is lvxl and has been offered the
city for I1.VA It will probably be pur
chased, and while it Is unlikely that
any housB will be erected upon It In the
ciear future. It will be used for an engine
company when the neis of the dis
trict are so great that one must be
Sjullt. The party then viewed the site
at East Sixty-first and East Stark
streets. Mount Tabor, which has been
bought, and upon which the city will
fcoon build an engine-house. This prop
erty is so situated that the company to
e stationed there will protect the Im
mediate neighborhood and also can con-a-eniemtly
run to Montavllla, It being a
-down hill pull. 1
Need Engine in Irvlngton.
The next proposed site visited was on
East Twenty-fourth street, near Thomp
son, in the Irvlngton district. Owing
to the rapid growth of this section, which
Is filled with beautiful homes, the Mayor
and members of the committee decided
that this ground should be purchased at
once and an engine-house built upon It.
While there Is no appropriation for the
purpose, the committee feels that the
funds should be provided some way and
the project started at the earliest pos
A site on Rufsell street, near Williams
avenue, where an engine-house Is soon
to be built, was next visited. The com
mittee then proceeded to North Alblna,
where several proposed sites were seen.
The pricq of property in that vicinity
led Mayor Simon and the members of the
committee to remark that the cltixens
there should see to It that a good parcel
of ground is offered the city at lower
rates than any yet quoted. A site on
Killlngsworth avenue In central North
.AJblna. Is desired. The administration
will not purchase any of the sites viewed
'unless lower prices ' are made. Judging
from the attitude of the Mayor and
members of the committee, much as they
wish to provide ample fire protectlpn
for that vicinity.

BIG SHOW ON 1Y HERE
RIXGLIXG 'BROS. TO PRESENT
100 BIG ACTS.
Circus Employs 1280 People and
Carries 108 Cages of Rare
With everything from a trio of Samson
like fellows who lie on their backs and
support a huge bridge over which is
driven an auto carrying six passengers,
to a blushing young French damsel who
shakes dice twice dally with death. Ring
ling Brothers' circus will hold forth in
Portland Tuesday and Wednesday, Au
gust 24 and 25.
Exactly as seen in New Tork City dur
ing the show's phenomenal run at Madi
son Square Garden, the big enterprise will
be presented In this city. In the 108-cage
zoo will be found Mr. Darwin, the man
monkey. He dresses like a human, plays
marbles, and can give Willie Smallboy
cards and spades In the art of spinning
a top. This strange creature resides In
a miniature house, has everything In the
comfort line from a brass bed to a
French valet. His boots are polished
dally and he eats his meals with the
grace of a Broadway swell.
The Ringling programme Is made up of
K acts and 20 features. Of the 375 per
formers concerned, fully 200 have never
before appeared In America. There is a
fellow from France who turns topsy
turvy, and with feet in the air and hands
In pockets he ascends stairs with appar
ently the same ease displayed by a per
son In natural position. While Inverted"
he actually skips the rope, waltzes and
jumps over high objects.
Then there are the Schumann horses.
Imported from Berlin. Germany, by Ring
ling" Brothers. They drink, from large
glasses while seated at tables, roll each
other about In huge beer casks, smoke
pipes and waltz on their hind legs. With
out question this Is the greatest trained
animal act ever seen in America.
For those who like sensation In Its
truest form has been provided an act of
daring that out-thrills everything In the
nerve-racking line heretofore offered. It
consists of a meteor-like descent of a
throbbinug aufomoblle, thence an arrow
like ascent until the car seems on the
verge of striking the canvas roof, a dip.
two complete mid-air somersaults and .1
terrible crash upon a distant platform.
During the machine's mad race the In
trepid little Frenchwoman clutches fhe
guiding wheel and successfully steers the
whtzz'lngiionster past the door of death.
Ringling Brothers now own the largest
show In the world. They employ 1280
men, women and children from every
civilized country on earth, carry M0
thoroughbred horses, exhibit 106 cages and
dens of rare wild animals. 40 elephants
and nearly as many camels, have a can
vas spread that covers three times more
ground than the tents of any other show,
and move from place to place in 83
double-length railroad cars.
The street parade Is three miles In
length from leader to steam piano. It
will leave the show grounds on show
day morning at 10 o'clock, passing over
the usual route.

Piles and Fistula
These diseases absolutely de
mand the diagnosis and treatment
of a skilled specialist. I possess a
knowledge of these diseases which
has been acquired by study and
experience. I attribute my great
success in the cure of the same to
the fact that I remove the primary
cause Instead of attempting first
to eradicate the local symptoms.
This is the reason surgery In the
treatment of Piles and Fistula has
been a complete failure to cure,
because the knife does hot remove
the cause of the disease, and thou
sands throughout the United States
have been left perfect wrecks after
the use of the knife.
I especially want those to con
sult me who have treated with
other physicians and have not re
ceived a cure, and any physician
who has a stubborn case under his
care is invited to consult me by
free self-examination blank.
