Alarming conditions exist at the Oregon

Danger for all of the boys lurks as
well in the sleeping-rooms on the upper

I should sweeD the building.

; iaillork. Too. Is Rtmty.
f .The padlock Itself is" so rusty that It
Is'doubtful If the key would unlock it If
the key could be found. If the screen
lng Is removed"the fire-escape lies open
to the danger that boys will attempt to
-climb down It. Superintendent Hale in
tenda to break the lock and remeay
this "condition,- btft as it stands it is a
menace. The only other means of es
.cape would -be a sheer Jump to the
ground from' other windows which are
fully 60 or 70 teet in the air, or down
three flights of winding stairway whicn
are no more than three or four feet
wide. The new superintendent is
alarmed at these conditions.
The third floor of the Institution is
entirely devoted to sleeping accommo
dations for the boys, aside from a cor
ridor which Is used by the nightwatch-
man. In all of the sleeping-rooms the
conditions are bad. In one of the
rooms, used by the larger boys, the ven
ti'i.tion has been so poor that Superin
tendent Hale was compelled to tear out
. parts of the ceiling to allow the air to
circulate through the room.
In the center sleeping-room the walls
rin . places . are literally covered with
'rust from the leaks through the roof
which have caused water to flow
through' the plastering and walls. . -'Dilapidation'
The entire building is in a dilapl
dated condition. Practically no im
prrvements to speak of have been made
in connection with the building proper
Tor 20 years, with the exception of two
wings, which were added years ago.
One of the filthiest and most unsani
tary buildings in connection with the
entire institution Is an old cow barn,
which has been standing for many
years, so situated as to place a blot on
the landscape of the institution.
That the milk which conies from such
a. barn is to say the least unsanitary,
and in probably many cases diseased.
Is the belief of Superintendent Hale.
He is making some improvements on
this barn with a hope of obviating con
ditions as far as possible.
Olcott Makes InpctIon.
An inspection of the building made
by Acting Governor Olcott and other
state officials today, with an Orego
nian. representative, disclosed these con
ditions, which have been complained of
before, but which have been standing
largely because of a lack of funds to
make needed l improvements and
"Some' improvements can be made at
a minimum expense, and will be made,
but the Irrstitatlon will never be safe
and sanitary until some radical changes
are made In connection with It," saici
Superintendent Hale today.
"The whole plan of the institution is
wrong in the first instance. In my
opinion." he concluded. "The modern
Institutions of this character have all
adopted the cottage plan. We have one
cottage on the grounds which is now
In use for office work, but I intend to
move the offices over to the building
and convert this into a cottage for the
boys as an example of the working of
the cottage plan to place before the
members of the next Legislature."
Superintendent Hale plans to con
vert an old wooden structure into a
gymnasium, the apparatus to be made
by the boys themselves.
It is his hope to secure some recog
nition from the next Assembly. From
the fact that no material improvements
have been made at the school, espe
cially on the main building, for many
years, he believes, with the unsanitary
conditions as they exist and with the
plainly apparent danger to the health
of the boys, which is visible on every
hand, that some steps should be taken
toward Improvement along these lines.
SHARPERS WORK WIRES

Old "Sick Brother" Game.
SHERIDAX. Or., Aug. 3. (Special.)
"A. Q. Latimer of Amity was the vic
tim last week of confidence men In a
new department of the game. The tilck
was turned by a telegram from -San
Francisco purporting to be from his
brother, Henry Latimer. The telegram
stated that on his way west he had
been injured and required $50 for hos
pital expenses in San Francisco. The
money was at once sent.
This, however, was not enough for
the sharpers and they sent another
message asking for $50 more. A. Q.
Latimer's suspicions were then aroused
ind he trlegraphed to his brother's
home In Texas and soon received a
reply that his brother was then In
Texas and had no intention of coming

they will be prosecuted to the limit.
That the sharpers were familiar wit
the brothers is certain, as they made

OREGOX EASTERN HCRR1ED

First Seven Miles of AYork Above
Oak Ridge Is Fast Scaring Com

OAK RIDGE, Or.. Aug. 3. (Special.)
Work on the Oregon Eastern exten
sion is being pushed as fast as men
and machinery can do the work. There
is a shortage of laborers now and
many more men are wanted and could
be used. The first seven miles above
Oak Ridge is fast nearing completion
and probably will be completed early
this Winter. Electric light plants
have been installed and the steam
shovels on this work are running con
stantly day and night. Rock shifts
are also working both day and night,
and heavy blasts can be heard at all
Preparations are being made for
pushing the work on up the Salt Creek
Canyon to the summit of the Cascades.
A road camp has been established and
a wagon road is being built up as far
as the Salt Creek Springs, and It is
said the road will be constructed
through to the summit at once. The
building of this wagon road is to get
in supplies and machinery for con
struction work and, considering the
topography of the country through
which it is being built, it represents
an enormous outlay of capital in itself.
Surveying parties are crowding the
survey work between the springs and
the summit locating a permanent sur
vey and establishing grade. Work of
clearing the right of way will be re
sumed just as soon as the season opens
for permitting the burning of the
brush. Here again is an enormous
outlay, as a strip 300 feet wide must
be cleared of every vestige of timber
growth and all that cannot be utilized
must be destroyed. It is ponderous
and costly work to hew a railroad
path through mountains.

particular connection between tne two
fires and that the same people were
not rsponsible for both but that the
party causing the second fire merely
received the idea from the destruction
of the Franklin House.
