1(5 THE SUNDAY OREGONlAN., PORTLAND, AUGUST 3, 1902. TO ERECF MEW BUILDINGS O.rlU A Jf. PLANS IMPROVEMENTS AT ALDIXA TERMINALS. Lurce Brick Structure Plrt to Go Up May Coiuiollilnte With Soutli- ern Pacific Snop. It la stated that the O. E- & N. Co. Is preparing to erect more large build ings on the Alblna terminal grounds In the near future. It Is known that meas urements have been taken for a large building north of the transfer track and north of the present buildings covering COO one way and about COO another. Meas urements were also taken for an office building to take the place of the present wooden building now used for an office. The first building "will be the largest on the terminal grounds, and will be of brick and on modern lines. This structure, it Is said, has been needed for a long time, owing to press of work In the other shops. The office is locatel in a cramped little wooden structure. There are also rumors of some other structures to be built on the terminal grounds in the near future. Plans are said to have been prepared. It is also said that the Southern Pacific shops in Southeast Portland will be event ually consolidated with the Albina ter minal works, and that preparations for erection of these structures Is a step in that direction. It will be remembered that the contract for the erection of a blacksmith shop and boiler-house at the Southern Pacific carshops was .called off, after the contract had been let. immedi ately followjng the visit of the president to Portland. There has been talk along this line off and on for some time; In fact, ever since the management of the two companies became practically the same. If these buildings should be erect ed on the Alblna terminal grounds it will largely increase the importance of the lat ter shops. MONEY FOR HALL SITE RAISED.

This completed the $20 required to pur chase about half an acre on the Section road, a short distance from the Mount Tabor reservoir, at the turn In the road. The members appreciated Mr. Kelly's do nation. The deed for the grounds will be be secured at once, and the building project will next be taken up.' During the afternoon a committee was appointed to prepare resolutions "of con dolence over the tragic death of George B. Cornelius, who had been a respected member of the Grange. The meeting of the Grange was made Interesting by the presence of Plympton Kelly, a pioneer, and one of the founders of Evening Star Grange. Mr. Kelly is over 75 years of age, and a son of "Father" Clinton Kelly. He made an interesting talk on the growth and work of the Grange organization, and Its influ ence In Improving the condition of farm ers.

Black, Chief Inspector of Cus toms at this port, has been promoted to the position of Special inspector of Cus toms, Collector Patterson receiving official information of the approval of Mr. Black's advancement in the service on Thursday. Chief Inspector Black has been In the Federal eervlce since July, 1SS3, when he received the appointment of Inspector of Customs under his father, T. J. Black, now deceased, who was appointed Col lector of Customs soon after President Cleveland entered upon his second term. He was afterward transferred to a. posi tion in the office of United States Marshal Grady; but during the time he had been employed In the customs service Mr. Black had shmvn euch ability in the perform ance of his duties that the department at Washington secured his return to his former position, since which time he has filled the porition of Chief Inspector to the greatest satisfaction of his superiors. His promotion is regarded as a recogni tion of past efficient services in his par ticular line of duty. Some years ago, when the smuggling of Chinese and opium into this city was at its height. Inspector Black made a rec ord In his successful running down of those engaged in the unlawful business. It was while on the trail of a notorious smuggler that Inspector Black discovered the first clew that brought to light the great conspiracy to rob the registry de-, partment of the Portland Postoffice and the conviction of the prime mover of the well-planned scheme. The advancement of Inspector Black will necessitate his departure from Oregon, his native state, which will be regretted by his fellow officials and numerous friends, many of whom have known him from childhood. He may possibly be assigned to the District of Arizona for duty, but as yet has not been officially Informed where he will be stationed. AFTER COMPETENT MEN NO OTHERS NEED APPLY" FOR POSI. TIONS ON BRIDGES. ) County Commissioners Decide That They "Wili Give Appointees a. Trial Without Pay. County Judge Webster and Commission ers Barnes and Showers, who have many applications for positions on the bridges and other county positions, have adopted a rule' that only competent men will be employed. They will first be placed on trial without pay, and only men who prove themselves efficient will be retained. A man named Kenneally was recently placed on the steel bridge to fill a vacancy with out compensation, and was removed at the expiration of two weeks for carelessness. He permitted a loaded wood wagon to be driven on the draw Just before the draw was to be opened. The draw was swung with the wood wagon at one end, and the weight caused the draw to balance un evenly, and thereby nearly caused a costly accident. Watchfulness and experience are required for the proper operation of the bridge, and the County Board will not trust the work to any but good men. Three vacancies have occurred on the bridges, caused by the resignations of Messrs. Tomlinson, Fleming and Haworth. These men succeeded in obtaining other employment, and took the places that offered thcmselvw? for the reason that with a change of administration a political job was considered an uncertainty. him in August, 1S92.

In fairness to Oliver C. Davis, who has been arrested for embezzling school funds, and to the Salvation Army, I .feel, that It is only right to state that, while Davis Is guilty of the crime of which he Is charged, he committee! the same years before he had anything at all to do with the Salvation Army, and successfully evaded the law for a number of years. After his converalon and reformitlon, through the instrumentality of the Salva tion, Army, ho of his own free will wroto to the authorities at Decatur, confessing the crime, and at the same time telling them where he was to Be found. I feel that in Justice to the man, and to the Salvation Army, which has been try ing to restore him to a life of honesty and goodness, this should appear In your col umns. R. DUBBIN, Major, Salvation Army. ARPEAL TO HIGHER COURT. Waslilnsrton Life Insnrnnce Com pany Asks for "Writ of Revicvr. In the suit of J.
