of Scappoose. with his Holsteln entries.
There wore four competitors In this class,
P A. Frakes, C B. Pierce of San Fran

KARLSTAD. Sept 23. After pro
tracted sessions extending; over soma
weeka, the Norwegian and Swedish
dele-rates who met hero to settle the
terms of separation of the two coun
tries early this evening- arrived at an
agreement on all points. The terms
were not made public.
In anticipation of an agreement,
large crowds assembled around tne
building In which tho meetings had
been held to witness tho 'departure of
the delegates. The Norwegians emerged
immediately upon the conclusion of
the session and were on tKclVway to
Chrlstianla a few minutes after ta4 an
notTncement was made of outcome
of the negotiations. The Swedish dele
gates remained within for some time,
but, when they did show themselves,
they, received an ovation and wore es
corted to their hotel by the crowd,
which sang tho Swedish national an
them. They leftat midnight for Stock
holm. Tho delegates refused to dis
cuss terms of agreement, simply saying
that they "would be given out oarly
An agreement had been anticipated
for some days, as both sides had beon
adopting conciliatory attitudes.

cluded -were peculiar In nature. On one
side, the delegates were four Swedish
Ministers who at tho tlmo of the Riks
dag decision were leading mombers of
the committee which framed the Swed
ish conditions of assent to dissolution.
On tho other aide tho delegates were
men who led Norway in its revolution
of June 7, but were not guided by any
decision of the Storthing. On the, con
trary, their every act was looked upon
with suspicion by men more radical
When Sweden's conditions were made
known, many voices in Norway were
raised against acceding to them. Pre
mier Mlchclscn, of Norway, was mora
conservative and, seeing the conse
quence to Norway of a breach with
Sweden, was willing to enter Into an
agrec-uont so long as It was honorable
to Norway and preserved as much as
possible her national pride. M. Berner,
president of the Norwegian Storthing,
and M. Loveland, the Norwegian For
eign Minister, were perhaps not- so
wllllng, but they followed Mr. Michel
sen. ; ,
Sweden Spares Norway's Pride.
The purpose of tho Swedish delegates
was to make an agreement preserving the
good feeling between the two peoples.
From this viewpoint, of course, Sweden
was compelled to insist upon demolition
of the frontier fortifications which Nor
way, notwithstanding the close connec
tions of the countries, had erected against
Sweden's entirely unfortified f-ontier.
Tho first purpose of the Swedish dele
gates was to hurt as little as possible
tho feelings of Norway, and the Swedish
delegates throughout the proceedings
have tried to find a way In which the
fortress located farthest from the fron
tier could be made less threatening, while
tho others, they contended, should be
demolished. It is believed this point was
successfully carried. Tho Swedish dele
gates were also anxious to preserve free
and untrammeled the Intercourse between
the two countries, and they also proposed
that certain agreements bo mad a regard
ing transit and waterways, whlcn were
equal In benefit to both and which would
prevent one country from Interfering with
the other. It" la believed that these mat
ters were also settled to 'the satisfaction
of both countries.
Laplanders Cared For.
Finally Sweden did not consider that
she could leave unprotected tho"lritercsts
of poor nomadic Laplanders, who for their
very existence depend upon the use of
the pastures of both countries at different
seasons for their reindeer. The Norweg
ians held out against the granting of this
right, which had been established for cen-

State, Wlilcli Is Tributary to:
Portland, AV111 Be
E. E. Lytle announces that ho will
build the Portland, Nehalem & Tilla
mook Railroad, which Is now tied up
at its first 20 miles of road through
the tangle wfth the AUa3 Construction
Company. Since the retirement of Mr.
Lytle from tho -Columbia Southern and
the subsequent statement that it was
his Intention to engage In further rail
road construction work in tho state,
there has been much speculation as to
where his activities would first make
themselves felt. y
The announcement of Mr. Lytle's
connection with the Portland, Nehalem
& Tillamook was not made as a public
utterance, but in tho course of a meet
ing of the transportation committee of
the Chamber of Commerce, called to
consider the feasibility of providing for
further river transportation by the
Open River Association. Soveral lend
ing business men were present at tho
meeting, among thorn being Mr. Lytle,
who, while discussing the question be
fore the meeting, said that it would be
Inconvenient for him to become active
In the plans under discussion, owing to
his other Interests,-the "chief of which
was the Portland & Nehalem road,
which it was his intontton to construct.
Ills Associates Not Known.
It Is not known who Is working with
Mr. Lytle in his efforts to rescue the
'road from the trouble Into which it

that ample capital is behind the prop
osition, or he would not have made tho
Edward Records, of the Atlas Con
struction Company, is at the Portland,
recovering from an operation, and has
not been able to attend to business for
some time. It Is expected, however,
that .Mr. Lytle and his associates will
call upon Mr. Records tomorrow and
enter" Into negotiations by which the
f control of the road will be transferred
to the new interests.
The Atlas Construction Company be
gan the construction of 20 miles of tho
new line, extending from Hlllsboro,
some time ago, but was unable, or did
not, pay Its men at the end of the
month, with the 'result that the work
Is now tied, up.
It is expected that by the middle or
the end of the week tho affairs of the
company will have been straightened
out until some Official statement can
be made, revealing the purpose of Mr.
Lytle definitely, and telling who it Is
that Is associated with- him In the
isrrorts m the Past.
Prior to this time many efforts have
been made to construct a road Intoithe
Nehalem country, -which Is recognized to
be one of the richest undeveloped regions
of the. Northwest. William Reid, well
known as a promoter, and many other
prominent men have been Interested in
theproposltlon and have used their ef
forts to Induce capital to Invest In the
construction. Up to this time there has
been no great response and no very defi
nite and certain management, but the
announcement made by Mr. Lytle dispels
further doubt, provided his plans carry
and ho actually does take charge of the
construction. He has tho money behind
him. possesses the confidence of his asso
ciates and has the experience and the ex
ecutive ability to handle such a work with
success. From statements recently made
by those known to be Interested In the
construction it Is believed that the work
will be commenced In a very short time
and the task hurried through to comple
tion. The Nehalem country Is one of the
richest in the entire state, op- the North
west, while the Tillamook district Is Just
as favored. It Is estimated that thyjre
are 56.00O.C0O.0CO feet of timber in both
the districts, which are composed of
practically SS4.964 acres of land. This
country Is all tributary to Portland an(T
Is situated from 13 to 36 miles from tfl
city. Besides the timber lands there aJ
many highly improved farms and dale?!
ranches, which yield produce as fine Et
an grown In the state. On the line of the
proposed road are situated vast tracts of
lowlands which have produced 30,000
pounds of onions to the acre..
Resources of Tillamook.
In the Tillamook district It Is estimated
that there aro 17,117,000,000 feet of tlmbor,
or enough to keep the Portland mills, at
their present rate of consumption, busy
for SO years. Besides these natural re
sources there are 51 cheese and butter

hours and 15 minutes, thereby earning
a gold medal and the honor, of entering
the Olympian games at Athens, Greece,
next Summer. As against the record tlmo
of 2:K0' for the Marathon race, today's
time was rather slow, but the race was
run In excellent style In other respects.
Of 20 men entered for the race, only 15
started, some of the best entrants being

Attended by Autos.
It was exactly 2 o'clock whon tho.
starter "sent the 15 contestants off at the
Evanston Golf 'Club, where several thou
sand persons had gathered to see the
start. Winding through the shaded streets
of Evanston, the runners. With their
pacemakers, reached Sheridan joad. which
runs south along Lake Michigan to Lin
coln Park. Each runner was followed by
an automobile containing pacers, a doctor
and necessary supplies. These vehicles
were marked with a red cross flag and
'more than half of them became ambu
lances before the finish, bearing tuckered
racers ' from the course to the Illinois
Athletic Club. '
All the men reached Lincoln Park, run
ning most of the way for theso 12 miles
between sidewalks well lined with eager
spectators. Onlooker? were banked sev

course lay over thev lake shore- drlo n
the shore of Lake Michigan. v
Fall by Wayside.
With half of the course run, Albert
Corry, of the Chicago Athletic Club, quit
at Grant's monument in Lincoln Park.
That was only a beginning, for during the
pace down Rush street to reach the South
Side four other runners took to their pur
suing automobiles. Reaching the Chicago
River, ' John Anderson was compelled to
rest nearly five minutes to allow a ship
to pass through the open drawbridge. This
delay was deducted. Up to the bridge in
Rush street 14 miles had been covered.
Passing through the wholesale quarter
of Chicago, the remaining ten contes-i
tants entered Michigan avenue and plod
ded on south. Somewhere between tho
down-town quarter and Washington
Park Club racetrack, three contestants
quit, while a seventh; fell so far behind
that he finished after dark.
When Metzner entered the race track
to finish the last threo miles around the
speedway. 50,000 persons in the grand-,
Btand sent up a cheer that seemed to
revive the tired runner. Half a minute
later Kennedy dashed on the track with
so much vigor that . many spectators
thought he would pass Meaner. But the
finish developed no spurting, the seven
finishers dragging In the order in which
they entered the track.
Runners Suffer Greatly.
The winner staggered across the lino
and fell face downward, just three hours
and 15 minutes after leaving the Evans
ton Golf Club's clubhouse, 25 miles away.
While Metzner lay on the ground John
Kennedy completed the course a close
second and from.extreme exhaustion fell
over the prostrate form of the winner,
in dire need of medical aid.
All along the course of the long run
contestants for honors fell to the street
I victims of extreme fatigue. After falling
lour times, iouis AiarKs, oi jnow xotk,
who stubbornly held the lead from the
first 'mile until Michigan boulevard and
Forty-seventh street was reached, and
within four miles of the goal, entered the
racing course second to Metzner. About
100 feet Inside the gate Marks threw his
hands above his head and sank to the
ground. When a physician reached his
side his eyes were bulged and his tongue
protruded between -his clenched teeth.
The sight was revolting. It was several
minutes before the doctors deemed It safe
to move him.
Albert Corey, of the New Illinois Ath

Metzner, the winner, has no record la,
