Blinds and Some Jumps Club
Will Now Devote Attention to
Horse Show Preparations.
E. M. Lazarus, on Callbon, w(on the
paper chase held yesterday afternoon
by the Hunt Club. Walter Vollman,
on Juanblllardo, was second, and Dr.
R. J. Chtpman was third. The course,
over a distance of six miles, was a fine
one. with Just enough blinds, brush
work and Jumps to make the ride pleas
ant. The hares, Mrs. S. C. Spencer
and J. Cronin, laid the course, and
they spread the paper over a route that
was new in spite of the many paper
chases held by the club.
F. O. Downing:, M. F. H., held the
small field close together until within
a short distance of the red paper and
when he gave the signal, five of the
riders were close together.
Finish an Exciting One.
The finish, a nice straightaway
course, was on Thirty - fourth street
and Alnsworth avenue. The race to
the finish was exciting and it was not
until within 100 yards of the end that
Mr. Lazarus was able to get Callbon
in front. Dr. Chipman, who has not
ridden through a paper chase in four
years and Mr. Vollman had a pretty
struggle for second and third.
Those who rode through are: Mrs.
K. O. Downing, Mrs. M. E. Wprtman,
Miss Inez Cummlng, Miss Mabel Law
rence, Miss D. B. Howard, Mrs. Des
mond, F. N. Leadbetter and Dr. Em
met Drake. The smallness of the field
that rode through was due to the fact
that many of the club riders were at
tending the Seattle Horse Show. They
will return today and the horses that
were shipped to the show will return
Plans for Horse Show.
Now that the Seattle show Is a thing
of the past, all the Hunt Club members
will devote their time in getting their
mounts, in readiness for the Portland
Horse Show. In spite of the fact that
this will be Portland's first horse show,
everything points to its auocess. The
only thing that could make It a fail
ure would be lack of attendance. One
thing is sure, and that is the show will
be a success from the horse stand
point, for already over 100 entries have
When the classification list was gotten
up It was decided to close the entries on
the 20th, but owing to the fact that the
Seattle show was on during the closing
week of the entries, T. S. McGrath.
president of the club, yesterday decided
to hold the entries open until Saturday
night. This will give the owners and
breeders, who have been busy at Seattle,
a chance to make their entries.
Practically all the boxes have been sold
and on Monday the box tickets will be
destrluuted. Each person who has made
application for a box, will be given a
chance to make his or her selection ac
cording to the order of receipt of the ap
plication at the Hunt Club rooms. The
reserved and season seat sale will be on
Thursday, at Powers & Estes' drugstore
on Sixth street.
BRIDGE ORDER MODIFIED
County Court Heeds Protest From
Kast Side Business Men.
Modification of the contract for re
pairing the Burnride bridge Is to
be made so that most of the time
one cartrack and a walk for pedes
trians will be kept open. Following
an emphatic protest against the com
plete closing down of the bridge, this
arrangement was made by the County
Commissioners yesterday, following a
conference with the North East Side
The bridge will be open, except dur
- Ing- about two weeks that is required
to repair the turn-span. Contractor

that traffic of no kind could be allowed

permitted to use the bridge at any
The Improvement Association sent
Its representatives to call on the Coun
ty Court and Commissioners. The dele
gation was made up of W. C. North, R.
E. Menefee, J. M. PIttenger, T. W,
Vreeland and Frank SInnott. The dis
cussion of the situation was purely in
formal. Contractor Wakefield was
present and. In making an estimate of
the cost of reducing the period for re
pair work, he stated that $6000 would
suffice for a reduction from 120 days
to 90 days.
Assurance was given . the visitors
that the walk for pedestrians and the
cartrack would be kept clear of build
ing materials during the open period.

mittee yesterday. City Engineer Taylor
was Instructed to make an Investigation

Construction Going Ahead on Power
Plant on Upper Sandy Road
Will Go to Salt Lake.
Great activity marks the operations
of the Mount Hood Railway & Power
Company. Construction is not only go
ing ahead on the power plant on the
Upper Sandy, but the railroad from
dresham to Bull Run, built to take
over the electrical machinery for the
big powerhouse, is half graded. Larg
er working forces are being organized
and the apparent Intention of the com
pany is to rush the project to comple
tion. Everything indicates that . the line is
to be a new Portland-Salt Lake Rail
way, as was told in The Oregonian
recently for the first time. The char
acter of the construction so far ac
complished, the reticence of officials,
and the contracts already, let make
it plain that the road will be butlt
cleara across Oregon to its Salt Lake
connection. . -
President E. P. Clark is in Portland,
as Is F. C. Flnkle, consulting en
gineer. These officials spent a large
part of each day at the Swetland build

ping out plans for hastening the work
and consulting with General Manager
Miller and other local officers of the
"We have established a sawmill at
Bull Run that is in full operation,"
said Engineer "Flnkle, "and cuts 30,000
feet of lumber a day. Enough lumber
and timbers have been sawed out for
the flume construction at the power
plant. . A stretch of about 13 miles
of the road between Bull Run -and
Gresham has been graded. This work
Is going ahead rapidly and as soon as
this piece of road is completed, the
construction forces will be switched
to the line between the power station
"All contracts for equipment and
construction have been let and there
is no doubt but we will have the initial
tinits of the powerhouse, which will
develop 12,000 horsepower. In opera
tion by May 1."
Some doubt still remains as to the
route the new road will follow as six
separate surveys have been made. The'
final work of closing up rights-of-way
matters is now going on and wtthtn the
coming two weeks the officials expect'
to be able to announce the exact route
the new road will take.

Public Service Corporations.
The assessment of the franchises held
by the public utility corporations in Port
land has been materially Increased this
year by Assessor B- D. SIgler. Last year
the franchise of the Portland Railway,
Light & Power Company was assessed
for $750,000, while this year the corpora
tion will be required to pay taxes on
$2,055,000 for Its grant from the city. Fran
chises held by other corporations have
been assessed this year at the following
valuations: Portland Gas Company, $360,
000: Northern Pacific Terminal Company,
$76,000; Southern Pacific Company, $50,000;
United Railways, $11,520; Paclflc States
Telegraph & Telephone Company, $250,000;
Home Telephone Company, $100,000.
Assecaor Sigler says these valuations
were determined by taking the receipts of
each corporation and capitalizing the con
cern on the basis that the earnings repre
sented 10 per cent of the capital stock.
From the capitalization so computed there
was deducted the value of the roadbed,
