Validity of the law requiring each pcr

trolled by a private corporation. Is to be
attacked in a suit now In course of prep
aratton. which the prospective plaintiff
la keeping In the background. Consent
has been obtained from County Clerk
Klelds to have the suit directed at him.
In an effort to enjoin him from collecting
the fees from the public for the support
of the library.
I have been approached by attorneys
at various times." said Mr. Fields yes
terday, "with the suggestion that I re
titmm m rtlet the dues for the library.
and thus testhe law. I have not done j
nowever. as a via nuv icci hh
tne Initiative.
Fields Thinks System Wrong.
"Since the law requiring me to collect
fees for the library became operative. I
havat felt guilty In doing so. as I do not
believe that It Is a proper source of reve
nue for the library. I have consented to
have the suit directed airatmit me to
have the constitutionality of the law de
termined definitely.
The Multnomah Ij- Library was
founded years ago. The members at that
time, and for a. Ions' time afier that,
paid H' each as Initiation fee. It was
decided Uter to omit the fees and
accept members at the rate of lit year
as regular dues. Those who are now
paying that amount have access to the
library as members, and otheca have no
right to the library, unless tney are as
sociated with a firm holding a right
to It.
For a long time the library lias had
the free use of rooms In the Courthouse,
and the county has paid Its gas bills.
The library authorities asked the County
Court for rooms In the new Courthouse,
but the court Informed the representa
tives of the association that If there
should happen to be any rooms not need
ed by the county, the library might have
the use of them, but refused to grant the
library right of way over any depart
ment of the county.
Future Is Xot Detrrmlncd. -
Whether the law library will be main
tained In the new Courthouse will not be
determined until the new building Is
completed. When the old building Is be
ing removed to make room for the west
wing of the new building, the law li
brary will be forced to find outside quar
ters. The revenue of the library under the
law that Is to be attacked amounts to
almost JeuJ a year. The law requiring
the public entering the courts for legal
business to pay duea to aid In supporting
the library went Into effect two years
ago. From then until now. the fees the
public has paid for the library, accord
ing to records at the Courthouse, approx
imate STaCO.
The proposed suit attacking the law Is
being prepared by s man who has spent
a month In working out the details.
About one-sixth of the attorneys of the
city have the privilegea of members or
the library.
Bailey to Plead Monday.
J. W. Bailey, state dairy and food
commissioner, was arraigned before
Presiding Judge Gantenbein yesterday
on the Indictment charging him with
neglect of official duty in not publish
ing In March & bulletin giving the
results of chemical analyses In his de
partment. He will plead Friday at
3 P. M. Bailey's recent Indictment on
a similar charge was set aside by Judge
Morrow because it failed to allege that
any analyses had been made that neces
sitated the publication of the bulletin.
The present indictment corrects this
Promise Made to Mend Ways If Sen
tence Is Suspended.
With two convictions on appeal In
the Circuit Court and a third case
pending In Municipal Court. Julia Kays,
of 79 West Park street, gave up her
flKht with the police yesterday and In
Municipal Court consented to with
draw her appeals on the two cases
and mend her ways if the pending:
prosecution were remitted. Fines ag
gregating $150 will be paid and the
woman has been allowed to go under
suspended sentence.
The house kept by Mrs. Kays was on
the list the publication of which led to
the recent grand Jury Investigation.
Hue was also the holder of a Federal
liquor license, and was arrested by
Kergeant Riley on that account. A
Una of 10t was Imposed and an ap
peal was taken. Then the woman was
arrested again on a charge of keeping
a disorderly house, was convicted and
lined S5i. Again she appealed. Im
mediately she was arrested on a charge
of serving liquor to a police officer,
and this case came to trial yesterday.
Chamber of Commerce Indorses
Sweeping Arbitration.
Perpetual peace between the two
great English-speaking nations received
the unqualified Indorsement of the
trustees of the Portland Chamber of
Commerce yesterday In a resolution
which the secretary was Instructed to
send to the President and Vice-President
of the United States, the Secretary
of State, the committee on foreign re
lations of the United States Senate and
the British and French Ambassadors
at Washington.
The action of the trustees was due
to the correspondence now in progress
between England and the United States
with a view of perfecting a bond of
peace arbitration, no matter what is
the question involved, "whether honor,
territory or money." The action of
the Portland body la similar to that of
chambers of commerce throughout the
i United States. Similar bodies In Enjr
I land are working In conjunction with
those of this country.

UITE In keeping with the high
standard maintained In the Baker
productions both as concerns
plays and players. Is the stage story of
Gilbert Parker's well-lked novel "The
Right of Way."
Undoubtedly a powerful modern
play, which has commanded more than
ordinary attention tbe Baker produc
tion proves no exception and Is staged
as well as the original company that
brought It here fl-st. Then, as now.
Theodore Roberts was one of the lumi
naries in his creation of the character
role of Joe Portugals. the French
Canadian. He has made the study of
this uncouth big boy of the Northern
woods a type that has been accepted
by other and lesser actors as a model
to imitate, and all the Joe Portugals
put on In stock or by road com
panies are spurious copies of Mr. Rob
erts' famous conception.
Mr. Roberts portrays the man just as
the author has given him to us on the
printed page; only that the written
Big- Train for Northwest Shrlners to
Take Part In Calgary Celebra
tion on July 4.
Final announcement as to Jhe itiner
ary of the Arab Patrol of Al Kader
Temple, on its trip to the annual im
perial council of the Mystic Shrine, to
he held In Rochester. X. T. the week
beginning July 10, were made publio
yesterday. The Itinerary was submit
ted by A. H. Lee. chairman of the com
mittee on transportation, and was
adopted. Tbe patrol will have a spe
cial train, which will leave Portland
July .
There are sufficient members of the
patrol on the register already to call
for four special cars. The trip will be
noteworthy and very attractive, as
tops will be made along the line at
Important places. One of the chief
events will be the participation at Cal
gary, which will be on July 4. In hon
or of ths occasion the Calgary commit
tee has nsmed it "American day." A
festival will be In progress and In
honor of the coming of the members
of the patrol the day was designated.
Another Interesting: stop wlU bo at Ni
agara Falls.
The members of tbe patrol will keep
In mind the fact that they are from
Portland, and will lose no opportunity
to advertise this city. They will wear
rose colored uniforms, which are to be
made especially for this trip, and will
be distinctive, so that wherever they
' ' "ti :
words are voiced In living tongue and
the big dominant figure may be seen.
The picturesque and broken English of
the French-Canadian, tbe Inflammable
passion, the doglike devotion and chilif'
like beliefs of tbe man are made so
perfectly a part of the character that
one Is loath to remember that Joe Is
only an outer semblance, and that
Theodore Roberts is under the mask.
In the scene of the confession, tho
acting of Mr. Roberts was one of the
most tremendous things ever permitted
a Baker audience to see. The great
body of the actor shook with tbe stress
of repressed emotion, his facial ex
pression was Illuminating, and his
broken cries carried the effect of
poignant grief.
Thurlow Bergen Is seen in Guy
Standing's original role of Charley
Steele which he handles capably, die
playing splendid discrimination in his
picturing of the three contrasted types
of man; first as the drunkard and prof
ligate, later as the man from whom
all memory of the past has been oblit
erated by a wound in his head, and
still later, with memory restored, as
an altogether new type, with all the
strength directed rightly, of the other
two characters and with none of their
fallings. Mr. Bergen vresents each of
these truthfully and sympathetically.
J. Frank Burke as Captain Fairing
and later as a Cure, is meritorious and
Dan Bruce gives a clever character
sketch of Billy Wantage, the irrespon
sible youth for whose forgery of notes
cnarley Steele unwittingly is blamed.

Competition of India Declared to Be
Ruinous to Trade.
India, with cheap labor and vast re
sources, as well as its reputation for
bag-making, formed the basis of the
complaint of Everett Ames, manager of
the Ames-Harrls-N'evllle Company, of 49
6i Fifth street, before tne meeting of the
trustees of the Portland Chamber of
Commerce yesterday. In 'his request that
a telegram be sent to Washington to pro
test against the removal of the tariff
In bags, as proposed by the House.
Mr. Ames said that If the tariff were
removed from bags, the product would be
shipped into Portland from India so
cheaply that every bag dealer would be
foroed out of- business. He said that
wages in India were only a few cents a
day and that human life was so cheap
that It was only a question of raw ma
terial, of which there was a large supply.
The trustees authorised the sending of
the telegram requested.

Less Than Third of Population
Added to Oregon Has
. Settled on Farms.
Country Faces Greatest Problem of
Generation, Says Official of
Commercial Club Land Is
Calling for People.
Although the population of Oregon
increased 20.239 in the past 10 years,
only 65,759 of those were located on
farms. Nearly 100.000 more than three
times as many sought the cities and
towns. These conclusions appear from
an analysis of the census of the state's
rural population, completed yesterday
by Manager Chapman, of the Promotion
Bureau of the Portland Commercial
During the past 10 years, according
to the census, the population of the
cities has Increased 101 per cent, while
the rural population has gained only 29
per cent. People In urban communities
outnumber the country dwellers almost
100.000, the figures being 355,463 as
against 288,312.
When the proportions between town
and country today and 10 years ago are
compared the situation becomes almost
startling. During this period the peo
ple In the towns of Oregon have more
than doubled, while the people on the
farms have gained only 86,759. Ten
years ago Oregon's people were fairly
equally distributed between city and
farm, with the country having the best
of It by 31.673. This margin has not
only been wiped out by the fast grow
ing cities, but they have piled more
than 100,000 on top of It.
Land Needs Men for Development.
The state, as a whole, has gained
260.239 people In the past 10 years, an
increase of over 62 per cent. Fewer
than 66,000 of this new population have
gone to the farms, while almost 200.000
have settled in the cities. Out of the
great number of new people Oregon
dded to itself during the past decade,
three went to the cities for every one
who went to the country.
"We ere facing the greatest problem
of the generation," said Mr. Chapman
of the Commercial Club, "for If we can
get more people on the soil many of
our other troubles will settle them
selves. How to get the-landless man on
the manless land Is the great work to
which the Portland Commercial Club
and the Oregon Development League
nave set themselves. The figures show
that there Is dire need of It. The man
who can devise a way to offset the
lure of the white lights of the city and
get men to set their feet on the ground.
Instead of treading asphalt all their
lives, deserves well of his country.
'Far be it from me to decry the
growth of Oregon's bustling, active
cities, but I do not want to see them
built up at the expense of the country.
They must go together; any other way
Is fatal to substantial progress.
Remedy Being Attempted. '
"I do not know yet how successful
our efforts will be to get people on
our vacant farm lands Instead of hav
ing them flock, to the cities as they
have been doing. Much Is hoped from
the 'back to the soil' movement that
now has considerable vogue. It will be
Interesting to note at the close of the
next 10-year period whether we have
been able to put a stop to this rush
to the cities. I very earnestly hope
that the next census will show a bal
ance on the other side of the ledger."
The Commercial Club figures show a
falling off of the rural population In
some counties of the state. These are
particularly the large wheatgrowing
countries where the lure of the cities
has attracted the small land owners
and their holdings have been absorbed
by the neighboring wheatgrowers.
Bigger farms and fewer people are the
rule In Gilliam. Grant. Union and
Wheeler counties.
Wasco and Hood River Counties.
whose figures are combined for pur
poses of comparison, because 10 years
ago Hood River County had not been
created, make the greatest gain in
rural population, their gain being 196
per cent. Crook County is third, with
117 per cent, then Klamath, with 64
per cent Harney and Lake with 63 per
cent each, Clackamas with 54 per cent.
Baker and Columbia with 45 per cent.
Lincoln 43 per cent, Washington "2
per cent. Polk with 41 per cent, the rest
of the counties having gains below 40
per cent.
These figures are somewhat reassur-
rlng, as they show that not only In the
Eastern Oregon "cow counties," where
the settlement has been active of late,
but In Western Oregon the soil Is win
ning many back. Smaller farms and
Intensive agriculture are doing the
work. It Is the hope of the Commercial
Club that this tendency can be extend
ed over tne entire state.

B. Zelgler Asserts East Side Can
Give Railroad Demands.
J. Bv Zelgler, who proposed the amend
ment to make It Impossible to va-at
streets extending to the water front or
grant permanent concessions of water
front property to corporations, asserts
nat under the provisions of the amend
ment It will be legal for the city to
f grant the railroad company a franchise
f for the use of streets for Its freight
depot and railroad facilities. He said
I yesterday that under the following pro
vision OI 1 1 1 13 uiiiciiuiucuL, niiii.u uo
voted on In June, the railway company
may secure the use of the streets need
ed for the depot:
A street shall be held to fulfill its func
tion aa a street by being used In any way
for the purposes of travel, transportation
or distribution, by or for the public:- and
where a street abuta against a water way
or connects with a railroad terminal, it
may be occupied by any structure or ma
chinery facilitating or necessary to travel,
transportation or distribution, and which
does not Interfere with full access of the'
purllc to the uses named; and this clause
hall Include and apply to all structures
necessary la the improvement of tbe publio
The subject Is now being considered by
the railroad committee of the East Side
Business Men's Club, which Is negotiat
ing with the railroad officials. It is the
contention of the railroad officials that
there is no authority that can give the
1 company a franchise which will Justify
' It in expending the large sum appro
priated for freight developments, but
General Manager O'Brien has said re
peatedly tli;ft if such a franchise can
be given, be will go ahead with the
freight facilities and make the big fills
required. This is one of the points the
railroad Is Investigating, and on which
a report may oe expected tomorrow

that attacked him before he reached
Portland Sunday morning, but may re

Mr. Gray has kept In close touch with
his office, and as there are no urgent
matters to demand his attention he
will not enter actively upon the per

newsboy, 11 years old, was so badly

and did not start to enter the car until
it had gone up about two feet. As

was within four or five Inches of the
