Crowd Awaits Fight or Frolic.
On every corner there was a crowd
awaiting developments, while over the
bridge at the circus grounds there was
a good-sized gathering, provided with
lunch baskets, who had settled down
to pass the d.yV"edually content to" see
a ftght or a frolic.
His excellency, Mr. Burlock and At
torney Jean L. Hedges, representing
the circus, adjourned almost at once
to the law offices of TJ'Ren & Schuebel,
and a minute later Mr. Schuebel, sum
moned from home, chugged up in his
automobile. 1th newspaper men as
a gallery, the principals threshed out
Mr. Schuebel demanded to know why
Judge liaktn, at Astoria, had been
asked to issue an injunction against
the Sheriff, preventing the peace of
ficer from interfering with the show,
and why the injunction was filed just
before closing time Saturday, when
Judge Campbell, of the Circuit Court,
was In town. He said such tactics had
characterized the entire proceedings.
Hedges Denies Attempting Hum,
Mr. Hedges denied that there had
been any effort to "slip something
over," saying that he had tried to get
Judge Campbell to act Friday, had
heard he was in Tillamook and did not
know when he would return.
"So I sent my son to Astoria with a
brief and application," he said, "be
cause the only other available Judge
was County Judge Beatie, and, owing
to the recall fight that is coming up,
I did not wish to entangle him In the
affair, lest it might influence some
voters In the recall fight. There was
another Circuit Judge we could get,
and so we went to him, because I did
not think it fair to Judge Beatie to
mix him in this matter. My son was
delayed on his return from Astoria,
and then there was a further delay in
getting the Coroner to serve the in
junction on the Sheriff. I filed my
papers at the earliest possible mo
"Well," retorted Representative
Schuebel, "Judge Campbell was here
Saturday night. Why didn't you ask
for a hearing before him? Why didn't
you bring Judge Eakin up here so we
could thresh this matter out? Why
didn't you give us a chance to present
ourside of the case?"
Ministers' Slide Presented.
"You knew all about it Saturday,"
replied Mr. Hedges. 'It you wanted
to try it out, why didn't you get Judge
Campbell? As for bringing Judge
Kakin up here, you know that it is not
the business of a Jurist to move around
his district to hear cases like this."
This side combat completed, the con
Terence got back to the law in the case
again, Mr. Hedges stating his reasons
for believing that such a performance
was not a violation of the law. At this
Juncture Rev. T. B. Ford entered the
office and said that he would like to
set the ministers' side of the case be
fore the Governor.
"This matter came up at the regular
meeting of Oregon City pastors." said
he. "We believed it was a violation
of the law. We complained to the
Sheriff, and he referred us to the Dis-
. trict Attorney. Mr. Stipp, the deputy,
rendered an opinion on the case which
w considered no opinion. We put it
up to the Sheriff. Later he gave a
further opinion saying that the Sheriff
could arrest the person or persons who
were actually responsible for keepin
the circus open, and when the Sheriff
agreed to do that we were satisfied.

Baby Ronald Grassens, 3 years old,
son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Grassens,
of 446 East Market street, was play
ing with a silver quarter given him by
his mother1 one day six weeks, ago.
Baby-like, he tried to swallow lt. The
coin wedged in his throat about half
way down and has lodged there since-
The child will be put on the operat
ing table at St. Vincent's Hospital next
Wednesday for what doctors say is an
unusually rare operation, to remove the
obstruction, which is now endangering
For some time after the coin was
swallowed the parents could not tell
what was ailing their baby. His symp
toms were peculiar. He could not eat
any solid food, but took liquid nourish
ment without much difficulty. At times
there- were painful retchings.
The baby was put under the X-ray
last Saturday by Dr. Alex Robb. X
ray specialist, and the resulting nega
tive showed clearly the cause of all
tho trouble and its position. The coin
was In the aesophagus, the tube be
tween the throat and stomach, about
five Inches below the throat and im
bedded firmly against the spine. It had
made a pocket for itself in the walls
of the aesophagus. So tightly was it
wedged that when the bronchoscope
was used, the quarter was twice caught
by Instruments, but could not be re
moved. It was decided that an operation was
necessary to save the child's life, as
in time an f.bscess would be certain to
form about the coin.
In this operation it will be neces
sary to enter the chest cavity, pass
the windpipe and make an incision in
the aesophagus large enough through
which to remove the coin. The open
ing into the chest will be made through
the lower part of the neck from in

VANCOUVER BARRACKS, Wash..
Aug. 3. (Special.) That this post wHl
not be abandoned, but instead will ba
improved and increased In size and im
portance is the impression gained by
officers today from Secretary of War
Lindley M. Garrison.
Major-General Leonard Wood, chief
of staff; Major-General J. 3. Aleshire.
chief quartermaster, and Brigadier
General George Andrews, adjutant gen
eral, accompanied Mr. Garrison, who
visited and inspected the oldest mili
tary post on the Pacific Coast here to
day. "L am charmed with the post here,
the fine climate, and the general situa
tion," declared Secretary Garrison. "On
this trip we are looking over all of the
military posts of the Army, and I can
not say at this time just what will be
done at Vancouver "Barracks. No de
termination can be made until we shall
have seen all of the posts and returned
to Washington. . But I am much pleased
with the, fort, and have enjoyed my trip
through it today." .
Artillery Coming to Post.
"There will ' be some artillery sent
here to ' replace the Second Field
Artillery, which .went: to . She FMUo
T"..Vlr""XV said Major-General
Wood. 'asked if' more, troops -would to
sent here. "Just when they will be
sent depends much on conditions along
the Mexican border, and when they can
be made ready to be sent here."
That the post will be enlarged for
maneuvering purposes is gathered from
the recommendations that more than
200 acres of forest now in the garri
son be cleared. The War Department
at this time is considering this matter,
as well as . the changing of quarters
to a compact place on one side of the
reservation, giving the greatest amount
of space for the troops to maneuver
and work out their war problems.
Post Can Accommodate Brigade.
In talking with Major-General Wood
today, Lieutenant-Colonel J. F. Morri
son, of the Twenty-First Infantry, said
that this post is amply large enough
for a brigade. "Here we have an area,
a mile and a halt .long and three
quarters of a mile wide on whicli to
maneuver and work out military
"A brigade could be handled to good
advantage on this ground. "In actual
warfare, it is not probable that tho
point of contact would be more than
half a mile wide. For a desirable loca
tion and for taking care of a brigade,
I think that this post is at least the
second best in the Pacific Northwest."
Major-General Wood assented and
when Major-General Arthur Murray
was here recently on his trip of in
spection, he said that Vancouver Bar
racks is large enough for a regiment,
passably large enough foY two and
large enough for three regiments, or
a brigade, if the trees are cleared away
and the buildings that now break up
the middle part of the post were re
moved to one . side giving space for a
large maneuver ground.
Target Range Inspected.
Major-General Aleshire visited the
target range at Proebstel this morning.
He had never seen this range, which
is about 16 miles from Vancouver Bar
racks, and which the. Government is
again attempting to buy. At one time
the Government had an option on the
land and Congress made an appropria
tion of J25.000 to buy it. but in the
mean time, the option expired and the
owners raised the price. Colonel George
S. Young, post commander. Is now
awaiting telegraphic instructions from
Washington, X. C, concerning the leas
ing of this range for target practice
The Twenty-first Infantry was ten
dered the use of the Oregon militia
target , range at Clackamas, but was
restrained from, practicing there when
stray bullets came near hitting , resi
dents of that vicinity. The troops were
ordered back to the 'post, and since
then an attempt has been made to find
a suitable range for target practice.
- - . Officer Expect Increase.
With ample ground in the post for a
brigade and' an ideal target range as
near as is the Probestel range, it is
thought by Army officers here that
surely this post will be increased to a
brigade post soon after the Secretary
returns to Washington, D. C
A committee from the Vancouver
Commercial Club, comprising Henry
Crass, president; J. A. Munday. W. F.
