Portland Physicians Are Already
Making Plans for Reception and
Entertainment of. American
Of all the delegations that will journey
from all parts of the country to hold their
annual meetings at the Lewis and Clark
Exposition, most people seem to be agreed
that the most distinguished, learned and
important visitors who will arrive here
during 1905 will be the delegates and In
vited guest of the American Medical As
sociation, who will hold their sessions
July 11-11, at buildings within the Expo
sition grounds and elsewhere in this city.
Famous surgeons from all portions of the
United States will be here, and with them
will be from other lands surgeons of In
ternational reputation, men -whose names
arc honored wherever the English tongue
is heard, and that's the -world over. Dr.
K. A. J. Mackenzie is authorized as the
special representative here of the presi
dent of the American Medical Association
to arrange all details for the approaching
sessions of the association, and Is conse
quently a very busy man.
Five Thousand Visitors Coming.
It is calculated that about 2500 members
of the American Medical Association will
make the trip to this city during the mem
orable meetings, July 11-14, and that they
will bring with them. Including their fam
ilies and guests, about 5000 persons. It is
too early yet to particularize the address
es that will be delivered and give the
names of those who are to speak, but
suffice it to say that from the preparations
already made the occasion will be fully
as brilliant as any previous meeting of
this historical and famous association. The
latter has 50.000 members and only the du
ties of their profession and the distance to
be traveled prevents the whole body jour
neying to Portland. The meeting will dif
fer in this, that the association sessions
will be divided Into a certain number of
sections, each one under a distinct head.
Some sections may probably have an at
tendance of 30 or -40 delegates, while other
sections may have"" BOO or COO. Meeting
places for the different sections must be
secured in this city within a radius of five
to six blocks. The general sessions will be
held in one of the buildings at the Expo
sition, and other meetings will be held
throughout the city.
Sections of the Association.
For instance, there are tbee sections
that must be provided with separate ac
commodations: Medical, gynecology, sur
gery and anatomy, obstetrics, ophthalno-
logy, diseases of children, nervous and
mental diseases, cutaneous medicine and
fcurgery. laryngology and otology, materia
medlca. pharmacy and therapeutics, path-
ology and physiology.
Consequently a good deal of work
devolves locally on Dr. K. A. J. Mac
kenzie and those who are assisting
him. But Dr. Mackenzie is more than
a willing worker Inasmuch as he
helped to win the convention, wnlch
brought the meetings to Portland. The
IjcuI committees are; Finance, meet
ing places, hotels, general exhibits,
social eptcrtalnments, registration,
banquets, programmes and. publicity.
bureau of information, new member
ship, badges, and women's committee.
Of these committees. Dr. K. A. J. Mac
kenzie Is chairman ex-oftlclo. and so
far these committees liave been ap
pointed: Committee on arrangements

Dr. George B. Story. Dr. H. F. McKay,
Dr. J. J. Panton and Dr. D. H. Rand.
A special meeting place will be furn
ished for the house delegates, consist
ing of 100 or more members, who will
transact the parliamentary or busi
ness affairs of the body.
Social Entertainments Planned
The social entertainments to be of
fered tho American Medical Associa
tion are being planned on a large and
elaborate scale, and include trips up
and down the Columbia River. To en
able delegates to thoroughly appreci
ate our river scenery, it has been ar
ranged to hold one day's session on
barges, and that steameVs will haul
these barges down the Willamette
and up and down the Columbia River.
All the delegates will go on this trip.
Letters being received from Associa
tion members ask all sorts of infor
mation regarding trips from this part
of the country to Alaska and the Ori
ent, and It is certain that many trip
to foreign countries will be made from
this port by medical visitors and
others. Once touching the edge of the
Pacific Ocean and after crossing the
whole American continent, the Orient
is naturally suggested.
Accommodations Already Engaged.
Satisfactory arrangements are being
made with the hotels Jn town, especially
with the management of the Portland
Hotel, and the committees say that the
Inside Inn. with its 600 rooms at the Ex
position grounds, will be a great help.
Already intending delegates are making,
in advance, contracts for hotel accom
modation in July.
It Is more than likely that the Ameri
can Medical Association, after meeting
here in July, will cease to meet except
in a permanent location, and that this
location will be Chicago. The present
president of the association Is Dr. J. H.
Musser. of Philadelphia, Pa., and the
president-elect is Dr. Lewis S. McMurty,
of lyouisville. Ky. The general secretary
is Dr. George H. Simmons, of Chicago,
and the treasurer. Dr. Frank Billings,
There are about 280 physicians and sur
geons in a healthy city like Portland,
and it Is safe to say that they and all
the medical men of the Pacific Northwest
will work together to make the 1905 meet
ings in Portland of the American Medi
cal Association, a great business and

Sheriff of Hawaii Dismissed.
VICTORIA, B. C. Jan. 21. Advices
from Honolulu, dated January 32, received
today, are as follows:
Following the dismissal a few months
ago of High Sheriff Arthur M. Brown, of
the Territory of Hawaii, owing to dis
closures made to Governor Carter by a
Plnkerton detective, another blow was de
livered today by the abrupt dismissal of
Sheriff L. A. Andrews, of the Island of
Hawaii. The new High Sheriff. William
Henry, went to the Island of Hawaii a
few day ago. armed with full powers
by the Governor, and Sheriff Andrews
removal followed. He Is not known to
have been charged with any offense
against the law, but he was personally un
popular on account of alleged arbitrari
ness and it is also stated that the illicit
sale of liquor flourished In his bailiwick.
He is succeeded by Sheriff I- M. Baldwin,

Large Number of Permits Issued, and
Real Estate Market Stiffens Per
ceptibly During the Week.
Building activity took a brace rather
sooner than was expected, after the first
of the year, and the past week has been
fruitful In building permits. Of the $S3,
373 worth of permits granted, none were
for Iare buildings and most for residences
costing from JpCO to X3X0. This is a good
sign and shows that the same sort of
activity in homebuildlng will continue this
year as existed last year.
The real estate market contained no
sales of note, but a general stiffening in
prices was noted. In the suburbs one
can yet buy according to his pockets, but
he must go farther out than formerly.
while down-town property Is stlffer than
it has been for many years. There have
been no down-town sales of size, though
tne market Is filled with bidders, as own

"Did you sue her for damages?"

Hitchings states that Mrs. Hathaway
employed him last Summer to find out

and expressed himself as well-pleased
with present conditions and the future
outlook, and that what Is most needed
is home rule under a territorial form
of government. "We have, without
doubt, 30,000 to 60.000 white people In
Alaska at the present; brlgnt, pro
gresaivo men scattered all over Alas
ka, who are perfectly able to make
laws and see that they are properly
executed. The population Is rapidly
Increasing and a home rule form of
government would develop the coun
try in a manner that would surprise
the world, and I think the powers at
Washington should give this matter
immediate attention. There Is cer
tainly no other place in the United
States, and probably not in the world,
that has as much mineral of all kinds
as in Alaska, and the fish Industry
would be simply enormous If properly
perpetuated. We want home rule and
