visiting with Archbishop Christie since
Tuesday. On account of his long resi
dence in Spain, as rector of the Col
lege of Irish Nobles, the oldest Irish
college in the world. Bishop O'Doherty
has an intimate acquaintance with con
ditions in that country.
Bishop O'Doherty recently was ap
pointed to the see of Zamboanga. In the
Philippine Islands, and is studying
church conditions in the United States

there, which will be about August 20.
In 1904 Bishop O'Doherty was ap

King Alfonso. The college forms part
of the famous University of Salamanca
It was founded in 1692 by Irishmen.
Bishop O'Doherty was chairman of
the Irish section of"the Eucharlstlc
Congress, held last year In Madrid.
"The anarchistic movement In Spain
has Its root In five cities, where It ob
tains almost exclusively." said Bishop
O'Doherty. "These cities are Valen

the merest fringe of the population,
and the people haven't the slightest
sympathy with them.

graduation fees are also remitted if he
passes his examinations with honor.
There is another thing I would like
to point out about the Spanish people.
We hear so much about the proud
Spanish nobleman.' The Implication is
untrue. The Spanish are the most
democratic people in the world.
"I was astounded by the magnitude
of the work the Catholic Church has
done in America" said the Bishop. 'The

"Who Pays Visit to Portland.
Dr. Paul Rltter, Ambassador from
Switzerland to the United States, ar

other prominent Swiss-Americans, were
at the station early yesterday morning,
for the Ambassador was expected to
arrive at 7:30 A. M. They were dis
appointed when he failed to appear.
but it was found later that a misun
derstanding had arisen as to the time
of his arrival.
He arrived at 3 o'clock and was met
by a representative tody, who escorted
him to the Imperial Hotel in a car dec

After a hasty luncheon the Ambas

Such were the words In which Dr. Rlt

Oregon, viewed from a car window.
Oregon is new to me, continued the
Ambassador. 'The nearest I have
ever been to this state was when I
landed at San Francisco three years
ago on my way from Japan to take up
my duties in Washington, D. C. But
I am already enchanted with the state.
The mountains and the scenery and the
climate all remind me of my home land.
No other state appealed to me so much
on my way across the continent.
"My government received a pressing
request for the establishment of a con
sulate at Seattle. As a result and on
account of the consideration given to
the possibilities for immigrants subse

was requested to make the trip to this
Coast, not only to look into the ques

also to give an Impartial account of the

George Barthelme, representative In
Washington, D. C, of the Cologne Ga

papers. He had expected to find a
town of 90,000 people, having placed
infinite reliance in his Baedeker, which
spoke of Portland In 1903 as .a town
of 80,000 inhabitants.
"Such growth is remarkable, even
In the United States," said Dr. Bar
thelme. "At home It would seem im
possible. When I asked the conductor
on the train what the population of
this city was, he answered that it was
nearer 300,000 than 200,000. I asked
him if he ever exaggerated at all, but
his air of Injury and his reply con
vinced me that he was in earnest."
MARKET PROJECT BOBS UP
Suit Brought by Owners of Part of
; round to Clear Title.
An echo of an abandoned scheme to
erect a large market building, part of
which was to house the Commercial
Club, on fractional block 68, bounded
by Fifth, Sixth, - Pine and Ankeny
streets, was heard In Circuit Court
yesterday when John E. Wheeler,
Jacob H. Cook and Dant & Russell,
owners of the east 60 feet of the block,
started suit against the C. J. Cook
Company to clear title. 3. B. Huston
is attorney for the plaintiffs.
According to Attorney Huston the C.
J. Cook Company started digging a
basement for the building and then
stopped when his clients and Russell &
Blythe, who own the remainder of the
block, put up signs stating that they
would not be responsible. Later the
contracting company continued with
the work and now has a claim for
$6000. The idea in filing the present
suit Is to relieve the property of any
claim which might be preferred by
the C. J. Cook Company.
The C. J. Cook Company was not the
only sufferer when H. P. Barnhart and
H. L. Nelson, the promoters of the
market building scheme, "fell down."
Bennes & Hendricks, architects, put
in $6000 in cash and more than $3000 In
services and William H. Walker, the
real estate man, who got the lease on
the - property for the promoters, de
clares he has never been paid for his

Notwithstanding the weather pro

weather for yesterday, Portland still
continued to swelter in the heat
and the mercury went up to the
mark of the previous day, 96, before
it began to recede. The evening, how
ever, was considerably cooler than on
While the high record of Wednesday
was not maintained throughout the
day, the weather waa by no means
what could by any twist of language
be called "cool." People threw off
their coats without regard for conven
tionality and walked the streets In
their shirt sleeves and fanned them
selves with their hats. The sky was
rather clouded throughout the day, and
this at least prevented the sun's rays
from beating down so fiercely as they
were wont to. The humidity, however,
appeared to be greater. Not until af
ter 6 o'clock did a ripple of breeze stir
the stagnant atmosphere.
High Mark at 4:15 P. SI.
The high mark was reached at 4:15.
In the next 45 minutes the mercury
contracted four degrees, and at 6
o'clock the showing was only 92 de

83 degrees, fully 12 degrees lower than
It was the same time Wednesday.
Indications are for cooler weather to
day, as forecasted. "Fair, not so warm;
westerly winds," Is the official forecast.
One heat prostration was recorded
yesterday. George A. Petterson, a
salesman for the Fred A. Jacobs Com

demented. It was necessary for sev

hospital could be secured.
S.cond Stroke Recorded.
Three weeks ago Petterson was
struck by an automobile driven by H. J.
Lathey and sustained injuries to the
head. Last Monday he was released
from the hospital. The recent Injuries
evidently made him unable to with
stand the heat. His Is the second case

fear serious delay In traffic between
that section and business district.

steel rails across the double track lift
span of the new Harrlman bridge over
the Willamette River the massive steel
structure that is to replace the old and

In less than 30 days thereafter, un

old structure will be started.
How the surface traffic now accom
modated on the old rlteel bridge will
be handled is a question to which city
and county officials, as well as the
100,000 or more residents served by the
old bridge, are giving serious consid
eration, inasmuch as neither the city
nor the county has entered Into a con
tract with the railroad tompany for the

The question assumes alarming pro

The Harrlman officials declare their
intention of opening the draw of the
old bridge on August 9, in accordance
with notice that they served 10 days
ago. After that date traffic that nor
mally crosses the Steel bridge will
have to seek another outlet.
Some time ago the county authorities
dented their responsibility In negotiat

clared it the duty of the city officials
to act. Mayor Rushlight and members
of the Council say they have not been
advised that It Is their duty to make
a contract with the railroad.
Harrlman officials admit that 140.'
