Postofflce la Flooded.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash

Department of Agriculture, the most
popular Government document issued
at Washington, has made its annual
appearance and each Senator and Rep
resentative has received nls quota 01
11,000 copies. There is, in consequence,
a gfeat flooding of the Washington
Postoffice. as the candidates for re
election are rushing the Yearbooks
through the mails to waiting constit
uents, who are never quite happy until
they read the latest word from the
Secretary of Agriculture.
Secretary Houston nas proaucea a
volume that compares favorably with
the Yearbooks of seasons past. The
Yearbook for 1913 is smaller than its
predecessors, isjiX much more pleasing
appearance and carries none 01 tne
highly scientific articles that have bur
dened this publication in the past.
Typographically the new Yearbook Is
a tribute to Secretary Houston and the
Government printing office.
In this volume, in addition to the
annual report of the Secretary of Ag
riculture, are 14 special articles of in
terest to farmers, fruit growers and
stockmen. A large amount of space is

2 BIG ACTS SHOWN
Pantages Has "Added Attrac
4 tion" This Week.
ENGLISH GIRL MAKES HIT
"Merry Masqueraders" Classed as
"Tuneful Absurdity" and Other
. Laugh - Provoking Features
Found in Abundance.
"Extra added attraction" and regu
lar prearranged headline on Pantages
bill vie nobly for. supremacy In the
likings of the audience. Bothwell
Browne has sent another of his tune
ful absurdities, the "Merry Masquerad
ers," for the headline number, and
England and vaudeville providence have
sent Daisy Harcourt, the "added at
traction." Daisy is of the Lloyd Alice
and Marie type of entertainers, only
that she soft pedals where Marie
didn't and isn't as saucy as Alice. She
has a distinct style of her own, how
ever, dresses with swagger care and
lavishness, and has a riot of ballads.
One, done up in a fearful and wonder
ful gown of purple and red, is a cock
ney tirade that scatters blue devils.
She "orates" on suffrage and does it
convincingly and to the accompaniment
of laughter. Hal Dyson plays her
piano numbers with excellent effect,
and the blyth Daisy pokes merry fun
at him and makes capital out of her
audience and the orchestra.
The Merry Masqueraders have Frank
Davis and Nate Cole featured, with
Laura Vail and Frankie Russell, two
pretty maids, helping them out In the
comedy centers. An octet of surpris
ingly graceful, slim girls dance into
the story and out again whenever oc
casion cal's. The big part of the act
is the tango specialty. In which the
girls, dressed in French. Irish, Holland
and Indian costumes, tango, in contest.
There's half a dozen songs and plenty
of comedy In the story, which, briefly
told, concerns the fortunes and mis
fortunes attendant upon Davis and Cole,
who In the guise of escaping convicts
pose as expected guests in a fashion
able family. The costuming is partic
ularly fresh and smart.
A clever idea is incorporated in the
sketch presented by May Erwood and
her "company." "Company" consists
of one member, J. S. Devlin, who as
sumes the role of a wise city chap.
May, in the part of a simple country
lass enters his apartments and right
under his eyes ,steals everything in
the place, even taking the telephone
off the wall. The lines are pert and
bright, chuckfull of clean doubleplay,
and both characters are excellently sus
tained, with humor uppermost.
Davis, who is billed with a question
mark after his name,' is fished out of
the audience when a call for a physi
cian comes from the stage. He turns
the episode Into a monologue that holds
a lot of new and a lot of old matter.
Opening the bill is a real wonder
act Salt Bush Bill, fat and amazingly
alert, cracks whips 60 feet long with a
revolver-like sound. He is an Austral
ian and a wizard with the whip, cut
ting smoking cigarettes in half, split
ting envelopes and winding his wife in
snake-like coils. She is a great big
factor in the success of the act.

The" motion of Attorney - General
Cradford for a continuance of the suit
of the Crescent Manufacturing Com
pany, of Seattle, makers of baking
powder, against State Dairy and Food
Commissioner Mickle. was argued in
the United States District Court before
Judge Wolverton yesterday. The argu
ment will be continued today, the time
originally set for the trial.
Attorney-General Crawford as attor
ney for Commissioner Mickle, yester
day asked for a continuance of SO days,
because, he said, he had been unable
to get the necessary witnesses or their
C. A. Riddle, of Seattle, attorney for
tho Crescent Manufacturing Company,
protested against the granting of this
request, saying that his- client had its
witnesses ready, having brought,
among others, two expert food chem
ists from the East at heavy expense.
The suit against Commissioner
Mickle is to prevent his Interfering, in
his official capacity, with the sale of
the baking powder made by the com
pany. The product is what ie known
as an albuminous baking powder. Such
powders are condemned in a circular
signed by the Dairy and Food Com
missioners of several Western states,
among them Commissioner Mickle. at
a meeting in Salt Lake City last Win
ter. The Crescent Company contends that
the egg albumen which its product con
tains does not constitute a violation of
either the National or the Oregon pure
food laws and that Commissioner
Mickle has no power' to prevent its
shipment or sale. ,

Captain Allyn Says Interstate
Span Needs Wide Clearance.
VARIOUS TYPES DISCUSSED
Experience AVith Those in Vse In
Portland Likely to Be Considered
in Making Selection for
Bridge Over Columbia.
Experience will different types of
draws in Portland bridges may havs
a bearing on the kind to be selected
for the Columbia River bridge to con
nect Vancouver and the Oregon shore,
as some rivermen are decidedly opposed
to the adoption of the lift draw, such
as on the O.-W. R. &. N.. and Haw-
1 avAn,,A h.iric-e here also to
the Broadway bridge draw when hand
ling loftv shlos.
Captain Joseth Allvn. of the Colum
bia River Pilots' Association, said yes
terday that in his opinion the swing
draw, such as on the Burnslde street
and Morrison street bridges, represent
the most nractical and satisfactory of
any in place.
St. Johns Bridge Clearance- Enonga.
"The St. Johns bridge has a clear
ance on each side of the dra wrest of ast
feet and that is sufficient for navl
tion here." said Caotain Allyn. "Of
course, the clearance is less on the
Morrison street and Burnslde street
bridges, but even with that. I prefer
to take a lares vmsel through them
than to go under nv of the others.
"There Is abundant clearance botwsen
the draw piers of the Broadway bridge,
but often tho operators do not raise
both leaves of th draw s high as
they 'Jhould go, therefore it Is neces
sary -or a man navisat'.ng a lofty ves
sel to head her through the center, so
the additional clsm.rnr is of no help
and prevents another deep-water ves
sel passing in the opposite direction.
a. mU t Vi a rnnni to sienals at
the O.-W. R, & N. bridge Is much too
slow and at times It is slow at ths
Hawthorne avenue briuge.
Incident Is Cited.
"A few days ago I was coming up
the harbor with the steamer Solano.
The steamer No Wonder, with lografts,
was aBtern of us when I signalled for
the O.-W. R. & N. bridge. Another
steamer, towing boomstlcks, was on
the upstream side of the draw, so when
It opened only one vessel could pass
through at a time. With a swing draw
vessels may pass through both sides
Regarding the draw of the Inter
state bridge, the War Department has
informed Waddell & Harrington, the
constructing engineers, and also the
Portland offices of the Corps of Engi
neers, United States Army, that plans
for a swing draw, lift draw or bascule
draw will be approved on the ''"n
of a definite application. Plans of all
have been submitted to Washington.
If a lift draw Is adopted the Depart
ment holds that the clearance must bs
150 feet above a 25-foot stage of water,
or in other words, it would be 176 feet
at sero. At North Portland harbor,
which will be crossed by the approach
from the Oregon side, a draw must bs
provided within six months after or
