SMITH DESCRIBES
GARBAGE PLANT
Wettest Material Consumed
Without Forced Draught,
Contractors Declare.
FAIR TEST IS DESIRED
CriUrlsma Doe to 1'rlrtlon With
Superintendent Xaplrr. of Old
Crematory, Says Engineer,
Who Ksplnln Conditions.
Tests of the new city garbage cro
3r.atory proved satisfactory to tlie con
tractors, when S2 loads wtre consumed
In one section of the plant without dtf
nculty yestrrday. although the forced
draught machinery hss rot been In
stalled. Kred V. Smith, chief engineer
of the Public Work Engineering Com
pany, and A. B. Manl.-y. president of
the company, expressed themselves as
feeing hlstiir (atmtl-d last night with
the res.ilt of the day' work and de-
elared that If the cltr would furnish
them all the garbage they would hence
forth d I-pose, of it.
Fair Tct Is Kcqncsted.
FVIctlon between Mr. Smith anil Su
perintendent Napier, of the old crema
tory, the former Insisted. Is alone the
rause of the criticisms that have been
made concerning the plant, and all the
contractors say they want Is a fair
chance to complete their work and
test It with men whom they have had
an opportunity to train In the use of
the new appliance.
The only remalnlrg work to be done
Is the Installation nf two engines to
Irovlde draught for the furnaces.
These enstnes were shipped from Chi
cago November 22, and are coming by
fast freight. It will not tike long to
Tut these In place. Mr. Smith said yes
tsrday. and h b -Moves the plant will
'le ready to begin the oftklal tests in
two weeks.
Inspection of the new plant yester
day showed that It was clean, whole
eome and apparently sanitary. The
floor around the holes In which the
garbage Is dumped is washed with
water and kept clan. and wagons are
washed with hot or cold water as need
ed after earh load ts deposited.
The plant Is built to allow the gar
bage to descend gradually down two
stories over t!rtng platea and when it
reaches the bottom It nee.!s but little
wood to aid It In burning, no matter
how wet It was originally.
EsctHciK-e Is Demonstrated.
The fact that the wettest of gar
bage Is being burned without forced
tfrnueht Is presented as an argument
by the contractors as a proof of ex
cellence. The plant will have a ca
pacity of 150 tons a day when com
pleted, but at present there Is not
enough garbage to keep It going at
full capacity.
Criticisms to the effect that the plant
was not being built according to of
ficial plans were answered yesterday
by Mr. Manley and Mr. dmlth In an
txptanatlon concerning the necessity of
reversing the plans, with the consent of
the city, before the contract was let.
To have constructed the building ac
rordlag to the original plana would
have forced the building of a mam
moth chimney on the bank of Guild's
Lake, where no good foundation could
be obtained for It. Thus It was found
necessary to place the chimney on the
opposite side or the building from that
on which It waa originally specified
to Be.
According to the specifications, the
contractors must operate the plant six
montaa arter it la completed. In which
time tests concerning lis capacity are
to ne made.
Contractors Make Test.
Tin tests being made now are at
the expense of th contractors and for
their own benefit, to determine for
themselves the condition of the plant.
The contractors complained yesterday
that aUhouKli the city promised them
all the garbage they needed for their
preliminary tests, superintendent Na
pier was ordering the garbage wagons
not to go to the new plant, and out
of about J loads yesterday onlr 53

and on both aides of six separata roads,
with MeMlnnville aa the hub of roads,
is the plan of Colonel J. C Cooper, the
well-known McMlnnvllie walnut-grower,
who visited Portland yesterday.
Colonel Cooper's plan has been adopt
ed by the buslnesa Interests of Mc
Mlnnvllie and will be carried Into effect
early next Spring.
Arrangements have been made to set
out the seed of black walnut trees at
Intervals of 109 feet along each of the
six roads that lead Into that city. At
the end of three years the young trees
will be grafted with English walnuts,
which have been grown with great suc
cess in Yamhill County. Colonel Coop
er has promised to supply all the seed
necessary for this undertaking.
Knough seed will be furnished to ex
tend the rows for a mile out of town,
on each road. Eventually the length
of the rows may be extended.
The question aa to who will gather
the walnut crop each year and who will
benefit from the sale of thrm has not
yet been determined, but the plan in
cludes the adoption of some means that
the proceeds may be placed to the
credit of the McMlnnrllla Commercial
Club.

Hurley Is moving in large quantities
over all lines entering Eastern Oregon

other Eastern cities.
Ra'lroad men cstlmato that yesterday
mora than 100 tons were eastbound.
Most of It was loaded at the several sta
tiona of the esstem portion of the two
Northwest states during the past week.
Much mora Is expected to move In the
next two or three weeks.
It is estimated t!:at more than W tons
ill bo shipped from urepon and Wash
ington this year and much will be con
sumed at home.
Failure of the crop in the East caused
the unusual demand. It Is believed, how
ever, that the Northwest can satisfy
Eastern consumers, as a heavy crop was
raised. California also Is a heavy pro
ducer of barley, but also consumes much,
but this year some of the surplus In that
statu is being sent East. Some of tt Is
routed through Portland.
Tlie prevailing price of barley In the
local market is 3 per ton. The railroads
charge lo a ton for hauling It. placing
It in the hands of Eastern purchasers at
13 per ton.
Most shipments are n carload lots, and
as all of it Is sent to a common destina
tion it s a coveted class of business for
the railroads. Competition Is keen among
traveling freight agents.
The Northern Pai-i.lc. Great Northern
nd O. K. t N. lines tap the barley
fields of the eastern portion of the tat
tates and each road has received a
hare.
The movement Is expected to continue
several weeks. The last of the crop will
probably be moved by the end of the
ear.
Most Eastern nrders are handled
through Portland dealers, put some are
taken by farmers themselves.
Parley-growing Is now one of the Im
portant Industries of Eastern Oregon. It
ts grown successfully in places where
wheat would fall. The market Is fair and
he profit la often greater than on
wheat.
Local demand has been entirely fir
brewing purposes, orders coming from
the Middle Northwest.
The Oregon product ranks high among
Eastern consumers, and if grown In
larger quantities would be preferred to
any other.
The total amount of money that will
come to the state from the East as a
result of the present rush Is estimated
at TTiOO.
NIGHT LETTER EXTENDS
J. W. Roberts, Public Building; Su
perintendent, May Select Spot
Within 1330 Feet tof Station,
to Saro Delivery Charge.
Portland residents who followed Jo
seph W. Roberts, superintendent of
construction of public buildings on the
Pacific Coast, yesterday are convinced
that he Is gathering information for
the Secretary of the Treasury aa to
avatlnbln postofflre sites within 1320
feet, or 80 rods, trf the I'nton Depot.
Should the new jiostoffloe building
be placed within that radius the rail
roads would be compelled to deliver
the malls and receive them at the post-
office building, entailing a saving of '
11000 a month. It Is estimated that
the cost of carriage In the near future
will be double that amount, because
of tho large Increase In mall matter at
the Portland office and the fact that
the present carrying contract Is about
to expire.
Four Blocks Inspected.
Mr. Roberts took advantage of the
sunshine late yesterday afternoon to
scan block S. offered at 1325,000; block
T3. valued at 1350.000; block 74. worth
I4T5.000. and block Q. held at JSOO.OOO.
all of which are said to come within
the radius which willrequire free deliver-.
Block Q Is occupied by station
E of the Portland postofflee system as
a distribution point for all mail dis
patched from and received by the city.
All of the sites were tendered In re
sponse to the call for bids which closed
last August, and are supposed to have
been passed upon by Ir. J. V. Hill In
making his report on the best and most
avnilable site.
That Mr. Roberts will pay little at-.
tentlon to complaints that the foregoing
sites are "filled In" ground and a part
of the old bed of Couch Lake, la evi
denced by the fuct that he heard the
same objection when here in 1905 to
locate the site of the Government build
ing for the Lewis and Clark fair. Mr.
Roberts selected tho Island In Guild's
Lake for the building against the pro
tests of many who warned blm that the
building would bo flooded. It was not
flooded and it la said to be the opinion
of the Government ' expert that it will
require a most unusual combination of
circumstances to bring about such a
result.

It Is also said that Mr. Roberts en
countered the same objections when he
selected the Customs-House site or at
least approved the selection which had
been made. -
It was denied yesterday by friends
of Senator Bourne that he had in any
manner blocked the report submitted
by Dr. Hill. They contended that Sen
ator Bourne wi Postmaster Merrick,
appointee of the Senator, had been re
quested to recommend a site. After
the bids were all In the officials are
said to have selected block S because
t waa the cheapest offered and within
the radius from the depot which would
require the railroad mail carriers to
make free delivery. It Is believed thst
conflict between the report of Dr. Hill
and the recommendations of the post
master of Portland and the Oregon
Senator caused the special Investiga
tion now in progress.

Pair Said to Have Attacked Barney
Relmer Xear His Home Smith
A Watson Ironworks Plans
to Press Charge.
Warrants were issued last night for
the arrest of W. McNurney and J. F.
Sharp. Union machinists engaged in
picketing the Smltn & Watson Iron
Works at First and Harrison streets.
They are accused of beating Barney
r.elmer. a strike-breaker employed by
the concern.
The alleged attack took place Fri
day night in front of the home of
Helmer at First and Montgomery
streets. Re I me r Is In St. Vincent's
Hospital and Is reported to be In a
precarious condition. His Jaw was so
badly shattered that an operation was
necessary.
"As near as we can ascertain," said
Alfred F. Smith, "McNurney and Sharp
followed Relmer all the way from the
foundry to his home. Catching up
with him at that point they precipi
tated a fight by abusing Relmer, and
then beat him unmercifully.
"The strike began last May by the
machinists who made demand for eight
hours and unionized shops. We are
standing for the open shop, and today
all the Iron works originally Involved
are working full-handed with a force
of union and non-union men. All ot
the better class of machinists who
went out with the strikers have re
turned to work.
The records of the Municipal Court
will show that there have been fre-
qWnt shooting scrapes and brawls be
tween members of the union and
strike-breakers. It has been a practice
to follow employed men and whenever
the strikers could find one of them
alone to heap all sorts of abuse upon
blm to provoke an assault.
"McNurney and Sharp are out on
bonds of 1300 each. W. will endeavor
to bring about a prosecution that will
mean adequate punishment.
Among the firms that have, been In
volved In the strike are the Willamette
Iron & Steel Works. Portland Iron
Works. Pacific Iron Works. John Wood
Iron Works, Phoenix Iron Works. Hea
cock and Lawrence Iron Works and
Smith & Watson Iron Works.

Don't wait to cure a cold until you
have pneumonia, consumption or many
of the other dreadful results. Check it
In time. This Is one of the best for
mulas known to the medical profession.
Two ounces of Glycerine and half an
ounce of Concentrated Pine. Add these
to half a pint of good whiskey and
shake them well. Use In doses of a
teaspoonful to a tablespoonf ul every
four hours." Smaller doses to children
sccordlng to age. Any druegist has
these Ingredients In stock or will quick
ly get them from his wholesale house.
Any one can easily mix them: but be
sure to get the real Concentrated Pine.
It comes In half ounce vials packed
In air-tight tin-top cases. This treat
ment often cures the worst cold in a
day's time.
Knocks Rheumatism.
This is recognized by doctors to be
one of the most effective prescriptions
obtainable to promptly cure rheuma
tism and backache. "One ounce of sy
rup of Sarsaparllla compound and one
ounce of Torls compound. Add these
to half a pint of good whisker (or
sherry wine If It Is preferred). Take
a tablespooful of this mixture before
each meal and at bed time." Any
druggist has these Ingredients in stock
or will quickly get them from his
wholesale house. Any one can easily
mix them. The good effects of this
treatment are usually felt after the
first few doses.
Ts Core Indigestion.
A well known physician gives the
formula for a wonderful digestion mix
ture, which quickly relieves distress
after eating, headaches, belching, sour
stomach, dizziness, etc., and. If used for
sufficient time, will completely cure
the worst case of dyspepsia.
"Two ounces essence of Pepsin; three
ounces syrup of Ginger: one ounce
Catandlr compound. These to be mixed
in a six-ounce bottle, shaken well and
used In doses of from one to two tea
spoonfuls after each meal and at bed
time." The Catandlr Is a comparatively re
cent preparation and may not be kept
in stock by some of the smaller drug
gists but he can get It very promptly
from his wholesale house. This mixture
is not expensive and is surely worth
trying by any one with stomach trou

successful.

ACETYLENE
GASLIGHT
FOR YOUR HOME
Any regular kerosene lamp that
will give an actual 24 candle
power of light for 10 hours must
cost about 6 cents for kerosene,
chimneys and wicks.
Besides, the lamp will need
cleaning, filling, wick trimming
and chimney wiping 365 days per
year.
Now Acetylene Gaslight will
give an absolutely steady and
uniform 24 candlepower light for
10 hours on a single pound of
Calcium Carbide.
And that pound of Carbide will
cost you only 3 cents in the
majority of states.
Moreover, the care of 40 Acety
lene lights needs only half an
hour's labor per month at most.
Compare that with the half
hour per day (or 15 hours per
month) of disagreeable labor
needed to clean, fill, wick-trim
and chimney -wipe even eight
lamps in a country home.
And when you have weighed
these facts, reflect that Acety
lene Gaslight has no chimney to
fog, no wick to char, no mantle to
shatter.
Acetylene is all light, abso
lutely uniform in volume and
quality, without waste.
It is the whitest, steadiest,
coolest, cleanest and safest of all
lights for the home, hotel or store,
as can be proved.
Which would you have, even if
kerosene light was as cheap as
Acetylene Gaslight?

rooms you've got and I will tell
