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.
Evenlnsr Star Grange Gets Ground
for Building on Section Road.
At a well-attended meeting of Evening
Star Grange. No. 27r Patrons of Hus
bandry, held yesterday In Multnomah
Hall, on the Section road, C. Milem, of
the committee on building site, reported
that all the money required to purchase
the grounds but $10 had been secured.
Plympton Kelly, a well-known pioneer,
and one of the founders of the Evening
Star Grange, who had" already given ?25,
arose and said he would give $10 more.
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. He has unbounded faith in the or
ganization, and In his remarks yesterday
afternoon Mr. Kelly set forth the advan
tage that has resulted from the Grange.
Mr. Kelly cannot attend often, but ho
still holds a deep Interest In the Patrons
of Husbandry. Better methods of farm
ing and closer social relations, he said,
were among the benefits of the Grange,
besides Its educational advantages.
Remarks were also made by Mr. and
Mrs. Paulsen. It was voted to hold an
Ice cream social on the evening of Satur
day, August 16. for the benefit of the
building fund. Yesterday 10 received the
third and fourth degrees. The session
lasted all through the day. The nlarket
block question was discussed, but no ac
tion was taken.

Chief Inspector of Customs Secures
Nevr Appointment. .
George T. 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.
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.

Stole Before Joining: Army.
PORTLAND, Aug. 1. (To the Editor.)
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.

a writ of review, in the State Circuit I
Court yesterday. Crcagh sued to recover
$193 balance alleged due for services per

terested. It was further set forth that the
contract was modified to the effect that
Creagh should receive $100 per month, pro
vided he did business each month to the
amount of $10,000. This, It Is alleged, be
did not do. sometimes doing business In a
month only to the extent of $2600 or less.
This defense was stricken from the an
swer In the Justice Court, and In the
writ of -review just filed It Is alleged that
the Justice Court acted, erroneously, and
the higher court is asked to overrule the
action of the lower one.

.The notice of the passing from life on

Snnnysidc Club Denies That They
Robbed an Orchard.
The Boys' Brigade, of Sunnyside, under
charge of W. O. NIsley and wife, returned
last evening from their outing at Trout
Lake,- well pleased with their trip. They
reached Hood River and then crossed
over to White Salmon River Monday,
July 2L From this place the party walked
to Trout Lake.
The boys were very tired, and thought
they would get supper, pitch their tents
and spend the night. They here met a
cranky professor from The Dalles, who
fcrbade their camping. He went to the
hotel and Induced the proprietor to for
bid the boys camping on the ground. Mr.
Nlsley. after much difficulty, got a team
and moved the outfit about half a mile,
where they were permitted to camp for
the night- Mr. Nisley and the boys feel
grateful to J. Smith, a farmer, who helped
them out of their trouble and extended
them every kindness during their stay
at Trout Lake.
They fished and hunted for 10 days.
Jack Povcy and Harold Kemp supplied
the whole party with fish during the
stay. The boys visited Lava Cave, where
they met Judge Frazer, who "joshed"
them about stealing green apples. The
boys were highly Indignant and denied
that they had robbed an orchard on the
trip. Mr. Nlsley explains the story about
the boys being taken sick and his having
to administer hot ginger. One of the
boys was . taken sick from some causo
and be was given ginger, and the other
boys complained so they could get some
ot the beverage. Since their return the
brlgado has been looking for the man
who brought the story that they stole
green apples. However, they had a good
time and came home with pleasant mem
