and Mrs. Sarah Bracey injured.
As a result of a collision yesterday
noon between a private car, driven by
'H. O. Bracey, and a jitney, operated
by George E. Bennett, at the intersec
tion of Broadway and Glisan streets,
.Mrs. S. R. Bracey. 64. lies at her home.
207 East Sixth street. North, with a
fractured collarbone and a badly
bruised - leg.
The private car was a total wreck.
Iwhile the jitney was damaged badly.
- That the jitney was racing with an
other jitney at the time of the acci
dent was affirmed last night by M. A.
Smith, of the county tax department,
.who was one of the passengers in the
jitney. Mr. Smith said that the two
Jitneys had been racing for some time
and that the driver of the machine in
which he was riding said to the pas
sengers, in referring to the other Jitney
driver: "I'm going to show him up."
Just before the collision occurred. He
said that the jitney was traveling at
high speed.
The seven passengers in the jitney in
some miraculous manner escaped seri
ous injury. According to H. O. Tracey.
who was driving the private car con
taining his mother, he was headed
north on Broadway with the intention
ef crossing the Broadway bridge and
was compelled to turn at Glisan street
to avoid hitting a machine traveling
west. In doing this he encountered
the jitney, traveling south on Broad
way, the impact sending his machine
SO .feet and causing Mrs. Bracey to
be thrown from the machine, from
which she received painful injuries.
Jitney Said to Be Speeding:.
Just previous to the accident, Li.
Thompson, special officer of the Port
land Automobile Club, said that he
was trying to run down the jitney,
which, he says, was traveling at a
peed close to 40 miles and hour. His
efforts were in vain, but he arrived at
the scene of the accident in time to
file a complaint against Bennett for
reckless driving. Bennett was ar
rested and later released on his own
Motorcycle Officer Shaffer was within
one block when the smashup took
place and says fhat the Jitney was
traveling. at a greater speed than is
allowed over the Intersection of Broad
way and Glisan streets.
'I was taking my mother home at
the time of the accident and was
traveling at a low speed when I neared
the intersection of Broadway and Gli
san street." said H. O. Bracey yester
daly. in discussing the collision. "I
noticed an automobile traveling west
on Glisan street at a terrific speed and
in order to avoid hitting him I turned
west only to be struck by the Jitney
traveling south on Broadway.
Water Fountain Demolished.
"The car that struck me was going
at least 40 miles an hour. I could
not have been going at any great
apeed. Making a sudden turn there
and to be struck and sent 60 feet
clearly shows that the other car was
traveling at a fast speed. That no
one was killed is a wonder to me."
After striking the private car the
Jitney crashed into a telephone pole,
but not until it had demolished a Ben
ion water fountain, located directly in
front of the pole.
The following passengers who were
riding in the jitney when the accident
occurred: M. A. Smith, county tax

shovels and sacks form part of the
new fire department that will cover
an area of 1.000.000 acres of timber In
Eastern Lane County.
The system is made possible by the
completion of the network of trails
and telephone wires, which have been
under construction for four years.
Five fire stations will be estab
lished, so arranged that virtually any
point in the forest wiil be accessible in
two or three hours, according to Mr.
Seitx. These stations will be located
as follows: No. 1. at Paradise Station,
covering the head of the McKenzie;
No 2, in Big Fall Creek; No. 3. cover
ing Box Creek Canyon and Waldo Lake;
No. 4. on Salt Creek and Haael Dell;
No. S. covering the Kigdon ranch and
the summit lakes.
The men at the ranger station will
be termed forest firemen and will be
distinguished from the guards. At
each station there will be approximate
ly three guards and two forest fire
men. The big difference between the new
svstem and the old one is that the
guards this year will be kept close to
the ranger station instead of scattered
out over the forest.
The real fighting forces, however,
will be the trail and phone con
struction crews. Each crew is a
force of eight men with a superintend
ent. Wherever they go in the forest
they will be within hearing distance
of a large electric gong. They also will
be equipped with emergency packs,
ready to throw on the horses at a mo
ment's notice. It is probable that three
of these construction crews will be
kept within the forest all Summer.
The detecting will be done by ten
lookouts, each connected with the
telephone svstem, and each so arranged

I am just an ordinary mortal like moBt
men, but I do know good clothes, and eo
do you.
I have paid my $80 for t:uits on Broad
way, and thought that good tailor-made
clothes could not be had at a less price.
But I have had an awakening. It came
to me here in Portland. I have found that
price alone does not make a good suit.
Principally it is the man behind the gun.
TAILORStARE BORN then trained in
the art. Training alone does not make a
tailor, for, believe me, it is a real art, a gift.
Right here in Portland you have a man
that is a master of the tailoring art, and he
is building clothes for Portland men at
'prices no higher than hand-me-downs. '
I know but don't take my word for it.
