-While the OrKon Naval Militia hae

through the enlistment of experienced
men. either havlnir seen service In tha
Navy cr in the merchant marine, tha
latest enrollments principally embraca
recruits mho are slightly under sue and
have received the sanction of their
parents, so I feel that wa are getting
the best material available." said Cap
tain Reynolda yesterday. "Drills on
the Boston are not to ba regarded In
'the liKht of fun. neither will they ba
arduous to those having an Interest In
nautical matters or wlshlnar to train an
understanding of how their country'a
r.Khtlns: machines are operated.
-Tha navlsatlon school will be
opened durlna- the coming week, but
already the first duties aboard ship
have been mastered by the classes, as
was evidenced Friday nlaht when the
engine-room force, to whlrh waa aa-
laned 17 recruits, 'turned over tha
main engine. Besides there waa ham
mock and baa- drill, the men being
put through their paces in rlgfftna;
hammocks and taking them down,
rolling thm neatly and stowing them
away, as Is done In the regular serv
ice nta-ht and morning."
So many requests have been received
t.y the officers from relatives and
friends of members of tha organization
for Information regarding maters on
the Boston and aa to how she. la
navigated and her guns manipulated,
that the officers have decided to have
an Invitation reception Friday after

hand to explain everything from the
site of the propeller to boxing the
compasa. Bida ara to ba issued Wed
nesday. Bv that time tha vessel may ba
shifted to new moorings, as Captain
Reynolds la working on proposition
to have dolphins driven north of the
iteel bridge, on the Kast Side, to which
the cruiser will be made fast fore and
aft and between her and the shore a
barge will be lashed, so there will no
longer be necessity for using launches
In boarding the ship.

new work and the rehabilitation of old
fortifications that Uncle Jim took over
with his conquest of the dona.
Though displaying a natural apprecia
tion of honors in beir.g ordered to new
nelds across the Paclrtc. Mr. Heelers
view of future prospects was dimmed by
the fact that staid regulations of Federal
employment held no inducementa for the
engineer's family being members of the
party, and for the next year or two the
head of the household will be far re
moved from galea that made his resi
dence near the mouth cf the Columbia
more exciting. Before the season ends
3a)or Mclndoe will have completed tha
modernizing of Fort Ptevens equipment,
and while changes have been made that
the general public cannot view, facilities
of war there have been so changed that
an enemy's fie-t negotiating the mouth
of the Columbia River will meet with a
reception per cent more effective than
would have been the casa during tha

CUTOFF WORK HEXT
Natron-KIamath Gap Likely to
- Be Started Soon.
CONTRACTORS ON GROUND
Southern Pacific Officials Go Kast In
Behalf of Fund Needed for Task
Which 'Will Reduce Run to San
Francisco to 22 Hours.
With the beginning of another fiscal
year, active operations on the uncom
pleted gap of the Natron-KIamath cut
off on the Southern Pacific Railway
likely will be started.
Construction work on both the north
and south links of this project haa been
finished. The contractora have their
men and tools on the ground, and will
bid for the new work that Is expected
to reduce the running time between
Portland and San Francisco to 22 houra
Because the Utah Construction Com
pany and other firms had contracts to
build the first sections of this new line,
it is believed that they also will be in
a position to do the remaining portion
to advantage. Being' established there
already, there will be no necessity of
going to the expense of shipping In ma
terial. J. P. O'Brien, general manager, and
George W. Boschke, chief engineer of
the Southern Pacific, now are in Chi
cago to confer with officials there on
expenditures for the new fiscal' year.
When they left they took with them a
budget of proposed expenses for the
fiscal year Just started. These items
will be considered by the board of di
rectors of the Harriman lines.
Cutoff Fund Sound.
Included In the budget was the Item
for the completion of the Natron-KIamath
cutoff, the heaviest expense like
ly to be Incurred by the Harriman lines
In the Northwest this year. That this
project will be approved by the direc
tors is the conclusion of local Southern
Pacific officials. As soon as it is ap
proved, and the work authorized, con
tracts will be let and actual operations
About 100 miles of the heaviest por
tion of the cutoff remain yet to be
built. This will take the road across
the mountains at a much lower eleva
tion than the present line. By abolish
ing this grade and reducing the dis
tance, the reduction In the running time
over the main line will be accomplished.
Plans for this work have been com
pleted. With good fortune the work may be
finished by January 1. 1912, but rail
road men are not calculating- on having
It done that soon. They set April 1 as
a conservative date.
Klamath Falls Next.
When this line Is finished. Klamath
Falls will be on the main line of the
Southern Pacific, and towns on the
present main road between Natron and
Weed. Cal.. will lose the service of the
fastest trains. However, because of
the Importance of the district traversed
by the present main line, fast train
service between those towns and Port
land and Pan Francisco will be contin
ued. While the plan of operation has
not been worked out. it is likely that
through trains will run over the old
Julius Kruttschnltt. director of
maintenance and operation of the Har
riman lines. Inspected this project twice
within the last year, and is keenly In
terested In the work there. -He was
eager to have the old contracts fin
ished with the end of the fiscal year.
When In Portland a few weeks ago, Mr.
Kruttschnltt conferred with Mr.
O'Brien and Mr. Boschke on the prob
able cost of building the remaining 100
miles of track.
The Portland officials will return
from Chicago early this week, and will
be prepared to take up at once what
ever work the directors authorize for
the present fiscal years.
ADVERTISING PLAN IS BIG
Great Northern to Display Steel
Signs Boosting Oregon.
Oregon will be brought strikingly
to the attention of travelers on the
principal Eastern railroads through a
system of display advertising inaugu
rated recently by the GrAt Northern
Railway alonp the rights of way of
aome of the leading Eastern linea.
R. L. Whltton. representing the ad
vertising firm of Thomas Cusack & Co.,
of Chicago, .which had the contract to
build more than 1000 large flat steel
signs for the Great Northern, arrived
in Portland yesterday after completing
the task of placing them at prominent
points on the New York Central. New
York. New Haven & Hartford. Boston
& Maine and other Eastern roads.
While here he will gather material
to be used in another similar advertis
ing campaign for the Great Northern
In another part of the country.
Mr. Whltton believes that this
method of advertising Is auccessful ;
probably not so much because It brings
people directly to the country, but be
cause It educates Easterners on a sub
ject' that heretofore has not received
much of their consideration.
"Many Eastern people." he said,
"have heard of Oregon only In a vague
sort of a way. but they have no Idea
what the state contains and what ad
vantages It possesses.

Officials "bf the company .will accom

J. W. Bell. Justice of the Peace, whose
warrant was also held up, declares that
he will take similar action. County
Clerk Fields has not yet decided upon
his line of aotion but Is waiting for an
opinion from his attorney John F. Lo

advise mandamus proceedings.
The salary warants of the magis
trates and County Clerk were held up
yesterday by County Auditor Martin on
instructions from District Attorney
Cameron who held that Justices of the
Peace should turn into the County
Treasury fees collected by them for

County Clerk is also indebted to the
county for all naturalization fees re

"In 1888 a law was passed providing
what fees should be collected by Jus
tices of the Peace for various services,
$5 being fixed as the amount for per
forming a marriage ceremony." said
Justice of the Peace Olson. "In 1895
a law placing Justices of the Peace in
cities over 60.000 population on a sal

entirely with the fee system as far as
such cities were concerned. Anything
we now receive for performing mar
riage ceremonies is contributed. Often
we receive nothing and many times only
a dollar or two. I consider, however,
that a man who would refuse to per
form such a ceremony, because he is
not entitled to collect for his services,
is not entitled to the honor conferred
by the privilege of performing such

there Is no question about his being en
