Details of Trip to County
BY ADDISON BEXNETT. '
The opening day of the great Mult
nomah county or Gresham fair was
sunny yesterday, and there are few
places I would more dislike to. be
than at the opening day of this or
any other fair in its making. Neigh
bor Jones is unloading his "punkins"
and squashes; Neighbor Smith is pil
ing up his cabbages; Neighbor Bryan,
with tears in his eyes, is grinding his
horseradish, and Neighbor Brown is
quarreling with the secretary about
an aJleged overcharge.
So as the first day about all the
truthful chronicler can do is to look
at the few things that are finished,
and fortunately I can state that the
eight granges of the county that usu
ally occupy a large share of the pub
lic eye are all in place. I will name
them in the order of their location in
the show building: Pleasant Valley,
Columbia, Russellville, Evening Star,
Lents, Gresham, Kockwood and Mult
nomah. Rivalry Kern Each Year.
Every year there is a great rivalry
for the coveted first place and the
appended honorarium of $100 among
these granges. Last year Russellville
took the gonfalon and coin, this year
I wish I knew! But, like a petit
jury, only the Lord knows how the
judges are going to decide.
Aside from the granges there are
7ree outside exhibits brouerht here
Mntact from the state fair Coos
county. Washington caunty and Mor
There are other exhibits well worth
eeeing; for instance, there is Edyth
Tozier Weatherell, who is one of the
directors of the fair. Well. I did not
mean to say that she is well worth
seeing, although she decidedly is, but
I meant that the department over
which she presides is, for she always
stirs' the exhibitors to bring in their
exhiiiits. 'But her department, which
embraces I think canned goods, fancy
work, needle work, art work, etc.. is
going to be by tomorrow well, mighty
well, worth seeing.
If you have J500 to invest, you
might find a big bargain in a bed
spread hanging in the art room. It
was made in Gresham 30 years ago by
Mrs. Alice McAllister and her mother.
They took the wool in the grease,
worked it. carded it. spun it, dyed it
and on a hand loom made this a work
of art, aye, a veritable work of art.
If I had $500 that was not working
I would buy that bedspread. It is
well worth a trip from Portland to
the fair Just to view and admire it.
Race Track In Poor Shape.
The race track Is a quagmire. It is
more fitting for a promenade for
frogs and mudhens than for horse
racing. But today the judges say it
will be in fine shape if If! Darn
that if. Why. it rains in this section
-ithout invitation, suggestion, provo
cation or excuse and when it rains
tt rains very wet. Like It did at Sa
lem. Even the Roundup this year
had weaUier a trifle moist. But there
Is quite a difference between the Wil
lamette valley and the Umatilla val
ley. Every year the Gresham fair brings
together a fine lot of livestock, par
ticularly dairy stock. I think this
year It will be bigger and better than
ever. I will know tomorrow. One
full barn is taken up by a horse
dealer about 30 head of draft horses,
mules and jacks. I would rather see
30 boys and g'rls each bring in a
lamb, a pig, a calf or even a rabbit.
Speaking of rabbits reminds me that
the tent "housing" the poultry and
petstock is well worth visiting. The
hens particularly are mighty gay and
mighty proud, as they should be with
eggs 80 cents a dozen. The turkeys
are gay and happy and Christmas
coming along with turkey meat 50
cents a pound!
Today s another day. If all goes
well I will be out there and go more
into details, because there will be
more details, for the fair will be
mostly "in place."

Support of the Multnomah county

Mayor Baker, who in a statement
holds that Portland Is duty-bound to

with success. "
According to Mayor Baker, the
county fair is one of the few oppor

city limits of Portland of becoming
acquainted with the work of' the resi
dents of the county who live Just
beyond the gates of the city.
"Every person in Portland should
take the time to attend the county
fair some time this week. From
what 1 have been told by directors of
the fair, the exhibits this year are
better than ever before and better

this be true, one visit will call for an

ROBEiRT W. SERVICE is a new
member of the Alaskan literary
family to reach the screen.
"The Law of the. Yukon," a Charles
Miller production showing this week
at the Rivoli theater, is an attempt
and an extremely successful attempt
to put into photoplay form the action
discribed in one. of ServicVs longer
poems, bearing the same title. Quota
tions from" the poem form many of
the titles used, but Charles Miller has
cleverly allowed many original
touches of humor and pathos to creep
around Service's stirring plot. Real
ism in the Alaskan snow scenes has
been skillfully maintained through
out the entire drama.
Alaskan "types" are in their element
in this play which is exceptionally
well cast. Nancy Deever and Ed
ward Earle; as Goldie Meadows, and
Morgan Kleath, editors of the- first
Yukon newspaper, are by virtue of
their roles the leading characters, but
Thomas O'Malley as Barney McCool
simply runs-away withall honors.
Barney McCool is an Irishman, a
"Dimmycrat" politician and a man
big of heart and true of soul. He
adopts Kleath when he arriv&s from
"outside" and in so doing comes into
the position of chaperon, house
keeper, nurse. political editor and
general guardian angeL His quaint
sayings and kindly acts radiate
through the production and -make
more possible its, stern Yukon'
philosophy of physical fitness.
R. Clint Montgomery is being
featured at the Rivoli this week as
both singer and dramatist. He sings
in pleasing tenor. "The Heart of a
Rose" and follows it with a reading
of Robert W. Service's "The Shoot
ing of Dangerous Dan McGrew."- Sal
vatore Santaella has taken special
pains In selecting musical composi
tions for the accompaniment of "The
Law of the Yukon." During a scene
in which "Tess." one of the pathetic
characters whom the Yukon spurned
because of her weakness, is found
frozen, the Rivoli orchestra, under his'
direction obtains dramatic strength
by playing Solvig's song of hope and
despair from "Peer Gynt."

difficult roles of his screen career in

Fluctuating Costs Cited by Com
missioner for Holding Back
The public improvement programme
for 1921. so far as the city of Port
land is concerned, will not be larger
than contractors can complete.
With this determination in mind
City Commissioner Barbur yesterday
instructed City Engineer Laurgaard
to prepare an immediate survey,
which will show-the contracts hereto
fore let, but not completed, and also
the approximate amount of work
which can be completed during 1921.
Downward trend of prices is Com
missioner Barbur's reason for delay
ing contracts which cannot be con
cluded within a year. -
"This summer was bad for contrac
tors, so far as work was concerned,"
said Commissioner Barbur. "Incle
ment weather caused delays and as a
result there are large numbers of im
provement projects, for. which con
tracts were let months ago. which
will not be completed until the latter
part of next summer.
"During the war improvement work,
except the very essential, was halted.
It took almost a year after the armis
tice before we launched into the big
programme which made 1920 the first
year that street and sewer improve
ment work has been going forward
at a fast pace.
"I am opposed to letting contracts
at present prices unless the work can
be completed within a reasonable
length of time. No one is In a posi
tion to Know prices which will pre
vail two years from now."
Commissioner Barbur has requested
that the survey be presented Xo him
prior to the budget hearings, and it

In this 'Story the author advances a
theory that morality is a matter of
location, environment and hereditary
influence rather than dependent upon
one's personal inclinations.
To illustrate this point he takes the
character of Billy Thorpe, who - is
worthless and a ne'er-do-well at col
lege, a failure in business and trans
ports him to the rubber country of
South America. Here, among primi
tive surroundings, he finds himself
and becomes a man. At the height of
his success he is opposed by certain
forces, which cause him-to revert to
type and to sink to the lowest levels
To portray this role Frank Mayo

"With all due respect to the court,
my trial was a travesty on justice,"
he said. "It was framed simply to

therefore that I intended to be a bad

Mazola being an absolutely pure vegetable oil,

Once you try Mazola you will prefer it to olive
