exhibition of baseball this season.

as a matter of conjecture until after

od-natured. and cheered alike both vlc-

e order of the day.
To say which team played the better is
t easy. Richie Parrott, the youngest o
e great baseball family, made his debut
the box for the High Schools. It was
st the kind of a day he liked, for clouds
silted the western horizon, making It
fllcult for the batter to Judge the speed

J. E. SIMMONS "WILL RUN" AS AX IX
His Battle Cry Is a. Xevr Banking
System lor the
J. E. Simmons, of Portland, who is the
Independent Democratic nominee for Con
gress from the Second district, is begin
ning his campaign. Mr. Simmons had
lived in Portland eight years, ia 43 yeara
of age and Is an old-time Democrat. He
goes before the people on one great Issue,
which is that of Government "banks.
"The triumph of either of the great par
ties on the present leeues," he said, yes
terday, "would not benefit or Interest
more than one-tenth of the people. It Is
like a board set on edge; It makes no dif
ference which way It falls, for it reaencs
equal distance both ways.
"The main feature I want accomplished
is to pay the public debt, and I have a
eyetem or method by which I proposp to
do it that will result In great good other
wise. I would force Interest so low that
money would have to go Into business. At
the present time the poor are paying the
wealthy salaries, instead of the wealthy
paying the poor salaries. This Is done
In the banks. I propose to borrow a suf
ficient amount of money for the United
States Government to start a great bank
ing system of Us own, paying the people
3 per cent per annum for the money bor
rowed and loaning it out again at 3 per
cent. On flrst thought, one would say
there could be no profit In this for tho
Government to pay banking expenses.
There would be, however, and big profits.
In the natural course of trade, pursuant
to the demands of the commonwealth and
business, this money would turn over at
least 100 times during a year, each time
the Government getting 3 per cent inter
est, which would result in it receiving 30)
per cent per annum, instead of merely 3.
Study of this theory explains how banks
make their profit. No man wants money
without there Is a. cause. He desires to
pay for something or buy something. Sup
pose there Is one big Government bank
here. In which all deposits are made, A
man draws out some money to buy some
thing, and if he borrows it from the bank
pays 3 per cent Interest. Before the sun
sets that came day the roan receiving the
money deposits It in the "bank to his credit,
and the bank is ready to loon it out again
the next day with its other deposits. The
larger the bank the more readily can it
reap greater profits on these repeated
"I claim that if the Government would
borrow $1,000,000,000 with which to start
this banking system, that within five years
it would have the public debt of approx
imately $16,000,000,003 paid and at least
$9,935,400,000 to the credit of the United
States. It Is Ju9t as easy to pay this as
not. It Is a mere matter of system. As
a matter of fact, under the present sys
tem, the dollar Is speculative In Itself;
the commonwealth and the products of the
commonwealth are nonspeculatlve, simply
because there is no demand. Why is there
no demand? Because we have robbed
them of their demand. Whenever the dol
lar Is speculative In Itself, the common
wealth and products thereof are nonspecu
lative. Now, if you will make the dollar
nonspeculatlve, the commonwealth and
products become speculative, as there will
always be a demand. At the present
time the demand is In the dollar. The
only way to remove this demand is by
borrowing money, as I have explained,
opening a Government banking system
and loaning money at 3 per cent per an
num. Then the dollar la not worth over
103 cents to those having money to loan,
consequently you have robbed the dollar
of Its demand. People who have money
will not loan money at that rate If they
can get Into any business. They will be
forced Into business. Now, the difference
between the two systems is that the one
I propose creates labor, while the present
one does not.
"There would bo Immense profit In the
business for the Government. One great
bank could reduce the quantity held In re
serve, thus rendering the money we have
more useful by increasing its circulation.
That Is one of my strong theories: Use
tho money we have to the fullest extent,
rather than endeavor to create more. This
plan should not conflict with those con
servative people who fear Inflation, sllve
and other suggestions made by politicians.
It Is not necessary to change the stand

that this Is the only self-Bustalning form

EAST SIDE AFFAIRS.
Success of Bank at Mount Tabor
School Golden Wcddinff.
The banking institution started In the
Mount Tabor public schools. In District
No. 5, by Professor Durette, the principal,
at the opening of the year has proved a
complete success. At first It was an ex
periment, and by some people at Mount
Tabor it was not regarded with favor,
but now there Is no opposition or criti
cism. Professor Durette stated yester
day that the bank Is to promote habits
of thrift and saving, and to Impart In
formation to the pupils In business meth
ods, and that all these advantages have
been realized. It is a complete savings
bank, and the boy or girl who makes a
deposit of a few cents goes through the
same transaction as Is used in actual
business, and they learn all about It.
Among the many Juvenile depositors of
the school bank there Is not one but who
can tell correctly about the ordinary bank
ing methods. In the bank up to date
there Is about $200, all In small sums.
The largest deposit Is $12 from a boy In
the fourth grade, and the next Is $10
to the credit of a girl In the seventh
grade. The smallest deposit to the credit
of any pupil Is 2 cents. The principal is
the president of the bank, and the teach
ers are the assistants. The main portion
of the depositors will remain to the close
of the year and receive their money with
interest. The directors heartily approve
of the bank. At present there Is an en
rollment of 430 on the school roster, with
an average attendance of 350. At the
close of the school this term a class of
9 will be graduated from the grammar
grade. The main building Is considerably
crowded, and next year another room In
the Glencoe building will be completed
and another teacher employed.
Their Golden "Weddlngr.
The golden wedding of Rev. Thomas
Hamshaw, a local preacher of the Meth
odist Church, and his wife, was cele
brated at Centenary Church Friday even
ing In the presence of a large company
of friends. In the church the rooms in
which the ceremony took place had been
beautifully decorated by the women with
a profusion of flowers and evergreens,
and the tables with the requisites for
an evening tea. Scores of church people,
young and old, were present to give their
heartiest congratulation to the venerable
couple, who were seated in tho midst of
the assembly, two of their grandchildren
being seated with them. Their children,
12 In all, are scattered over tho state.
"Blessed Bo tho Tie That Binds" was
sung by the assembly, led by Mr. and
Mrs. E. S. Miller. Mrs. Miller gave a
finely rendered solo. Miss Possen pre
sided at the piano. Rev. L. E. Rock
well, D. D., made Introductory remarks
and offered an earnest prayer, which was
followed by speeches reminiscent and ap
propriate to the occasion by Rev. John W.
Miller and Rev. John Fllnn, both pioneer
ministers of the Northwest. Then came
the presentation of the golden offering
to Mr. Hamshaw from his children and
friends of Centenary, consisting of a
purse of about $100. A delightful hour was
spent around the tea tables. Finally Mr.
Hamshaw responded with an address of
thanks for the honors that had been be
stowed on himself and wife. Mr. Ham
shaw is 79 years old, and has been a local
preacher for 45 years.

The debris In Sullivan's gulch, east of

SMASHED SEVERAL RIGS
CRAZY COLT PLAYS HAVOC IX A
Jaapi Into a Banch of Bagrsles at
Fraxler & McLean's, and Kiclcs
Them to Pieces.
A crazy colt, owned by T. D. Honey
man, created consternation In the livery
stable or Frazier & McLean, yesterday
afternoon, demolishing about a dozen bug
gies, and Inflicting a loss upon the firm of
$1000 or more. The havoc was wrought
eo suddenly and rapidly as to astound
those who witnessed it, and to prevent
the work of destruction was a sheer Im
possibility. Mr. McLean states that he
would have shot the animal If he had had
It all happened In the space of a minute
or two, and the colt proved to be such a
cyclonic smasher of things that the prize
record of the justly celebrated bull In a
china shoD has been knocked Into the
shade. The colt was left at the stable
to be exercised, and was pretty well
broken. About 4 o'clock she was brought
upstairs on to the main floor. The bug
gies are kept on this floor, along the rear
wall, and there were probably 25 or more
of them side by side, with a small space
between a few of the vehicles. The colt
broke away and ran to the rear of the
place, and without warning, and before
she could be overtaken, jumped clear on
top of a buggy, and from one to another,
and jumped and kicked, breaking seats,
sides, bottoms, shafts, springs and every
thing she could kick, strike or chew apart.
The stablemen made every attempt to
capture the Infuriated animal, but In the
midst of a mass of wreckage and vehicles
all together It was a difficult, trying and
hazardous problem. It was all over, how
ever, In a marvelously brief space of time,
and the colt, freeing herself, made a dash
toward the door, but one of her legs
caught In a wheel and she was thrown
down and captured.
An Inspection of the buggies disclosed
those belonging to the following-named
persons to have been more or less dam
aged, a number of them being In pretty
bad shape: P. J. Mann, Mrs. L. E. Juston,
F. W. Baltes, Mr. Cleveland. A. C. Loh
mlre. Dr. W. H. Saylcr, H. W. Scott, F.
W. Leadbetter and one or two owned by
Frazier & McLean. The vehicles wero
sent to a carriage-maker to be repaired,
and Frazier & McLean will pay the bills.
Mr. McLean states that the mother of
the colt Is a vicious, crazy mare, ana
the colt Inherits her bad traits, but had
previously behaved well, and was not con
