President Foster and a general com
mittee of Portland citizens -whom he
lias selected have worked out prelim
inary plans for the "Portland 1915"
conference and festival, to be held at
Iteed Collegre May 15, 16 and 17.
The general aim of the conference,
which corresponds to the conference
on the "Conservation of Human Life,"
held at the college a year ago, will be
to get together all the organizations
that are working for the moral, civic or
commercial advancement of the city
for a three days' discussion and the
interchange of ideas and methods of
work. Among the organizations tlfat
will co-operate are the Ad Club, Com
mercial Club, Rotary Club, Oregon
Civic League, Portland City Health
Department, Oregon Immigration Com
mission, Central Labor Council, Manu
facturers' Association, Portland Wom
an's Club and a number of others. The
colleges and the universities have been
asked to send delegates.
A feature of the three days' meetings
will be the festival. The students are
hard at work on a number of enter
tainments planned primarily for con
ference visitors. On the Wednesday
afternoon und evening and Thursday
evening preceding the opening the
Classical Club will present the Anti
pone of Sophocles, a Greek tragedy.
The women of the three college classes
will engage in competitive Maypole
liances. There will also be male games
and sports of various kinds and a fairy
play adapted to .juvenile performers
called "Snow White."
The college is well equipped this
year to handle the visitors, as there are
three halls available, each ; of which
will seat from 300 to 400. There are
also more than 20 other rooms large
enough for exhibits and for smaller
Eectional meetings. Three large rooms
are equipped for stereopticon lectures.
Reduced rates of one fare and a
third for the round ' trip have been
granted on the certificate ' plan by all
railroads, going tickets to be sold May
12 to 17, and on return. May 15 to 19.
Purchaser should ask for a certificate.
Governor West will preside on the
opening day and deliver the opening
address. A portion of the programme,

The Multnomah County poor farm,
by systematic management, has shown
a credit of between $3000 and $4000,
for the past nine months, as opposed to
a debit of $4000. It has been placed,
so far as possible, on a scientific basis
of production, and it is estimated that
within the next year or 18 months it
will be yielding sufficient foodstuffs to
suppiy all the county Institutions and
possibly some of the city institutions,
This much was brought out last
Thursday, when, a strong committee of
members from the Lents Grange, at
the invitation of Rufus C. Holman.
chairman of the Board of County Com
missioners,, made a visit to procure
exact information as- to the working
of the farm. . -
II. A. Lewis, one of the Grange com
mittee and himself president of the
Gresham County Fair, declared that a
year ago the farm was worse off than
it had been when first operated for
the county. He and all the members
of .the committee were favorably im
pressed with the changes . that had
been made, frequently commenting on
work which particularly interested
them and giving advice here and there
on matters regarding, which they are
Mr. Holman plainly pointed out to
his visitors the state of affairs he had
found upon entering office in June.
"At that time," he said, "the county
was purchasing $4000 wortli of pro
duce; eggs were being bought, even,
the dairy herd was inbred, the bull
having grown from a calf with the
herd, and the hogs were dying of
cholera, due to the position and con
dition of the pens, while nothing
seemed to be run on ji systematic or
business-like basis at all.
State Experts Called In.
"The first thing it seemed to me
should be done was to Invoke the aid
of the Oregon Agricultural College, our
own state institution, which was
brought Into existence so that county,
city and state might all benefit from it.
Yet, when I asked the head of the in
stitution to come down and go over the
farm with me, it was - the first time
his advice had been asked.
"Dr. T. Withycombe came down and
we took an inventory of everything
on the 193 acres. We went carefully
into- the needs of the patients, realiz
ing that, with the number of tubercu
lous cases and elderly people, we
should need eggs, butter and milk In
large quantities, fruits and truck garden-produce.
"As a result of DY. Withycombe's
visit, he offered to give his personal
assistance in the dairy. Professor Dry
den's for eggs and poultry and Profes
sor Bouquet's for garden produce. I
told them If they would take over the
supervision we would support them in
all they did,. and I think that the plan
has worked perfectly.

FAMOUS PLAY IS DUE

pearance at the Heilig on Tuesday-evening.
April 28, her sec
ond visit to Portland this season,: In
the stellar role of Bayard Veiller's sen
sationally successful modern American
human interest drama, "Within the
Law," draws attention to the fabulous
fortune that. Is the reward of the play
wright -fortunate " enough to' "put
across" a real hit, and also to the al
most Incredible hazards that enter in
to the production of a play.
As is now fairly well known, "Within
the Law" Is one of the phenomenal suc
cesses in the history of the American
theaters. In this country alone 10
companies, the greatest number of or
ganizations ever sent forth simultane
ously in the same vehicle, are making
known the Veiller play in as many dif
ferent sections, and with huge profit.
So, potent is the fascination this play
is- exercising on playgoers that several
of these companies have been obliged
to return at least once to every city
after their original visit, a procedure
hitherto unknown. Miss Ulington is
returning to Portland after a record-
breaking tour of California and this
is the first Instance on record where
any star .or play has appeared twice
in this city the same season.
In London "Within the Law" has al
ready passed the 11th month of a run
that promises to establish a new rec
ord for American dramatic offerings
in the British metropolis. Four other
companied are touring the English
provinces. In far-away Australia the
vogue of this absorbing play is almost
as great as in America. Melbourne,
where it was first presented in the
Antipodes, and Sydney have been ap
plauding its persecuted shopgirl hero
ine for months past. "Within the Law"
is also being played .in Berlin and in
Vienna, and in Paris it will be made
known next month. In New York this
play continued Into the second year of
a consecutive run that amazed even
the. calloused Broadwayites. In Bos

Slllk; Herd Is Being- Built.
"The college advised that some cows
not good for milk be sold. With the
proceeds, one of the. best bulls in the
country, of the Holstein strain, was
bought in the East.
"This strain will be continued, as ex
perience has proved them to be the
best milk givers. Of course, it will
take time, as it all has to be done with
a minimum of outlay, but when the
herd is at full strength we shall have
enough milk to supply the Detention
Home and the City Hospital, as well as
the poor farm, containing between 400
and 600 persons."
The remainder of the improvements
were noted without assistance from
Mr. Holman, except that he explained
occasionally the difference in the
work and system.
An exact daily account of all eggs
laid is -kept. Instead of-buying eggs
from other sources, as formerly, the
hens now average from 165 to 185 eggs
a day. They are housed in what was

Instead of being situated in the mid

the top of the slope, and with running
water at the bottom.
Rats have been practically annihi

Mr. Denison showed the visitors
some letters from O. A. C as proof
that he was following directions and
also that the college is working to

Two Linn Men Named Miller
Again On Ballot
Colnrldenre of ' Many. Years to. Be
Follonrd In Primaries Rnssells
Also Doubly Represented.
ALBANY. Or., April 1 (Special.)
A coincidence of many years will
be apparent again this year in the
forthcoming primaries in this county
when there will be two men named
"Miller" on the county ballot. This
name has long been prominent in Linn
County politics, and for the past sev
eral elections at least two men of that
name have run for office In the coun
ty. A further coincidence Is that few
of the Millers who have been candi
dates have been related In any way.
The precedent was established In
1906. when there were five men named
Miller aispirants for nominations In
the primaries. Frank J. Miller, of Al
bany, now chairman of the State Rail
road Commission, was an aspirant for
the Republican nomination for joint
Senator from Linn and Marion coun
ties; Milton A. Miller, of Lebanon, now
United States Collector of Internal
Revenue for Oregon, was an aspirant
for the Democratic nomination for State
Senator from Linn County; J. W. Miller,
of Shelburn, was an aspirant for the
Republican nomination for County
Clerk, and R. B. Miller, of Scio, and
Mart Miller, of Albany, were aspirants
for the Democratic nomination for
County Commissioner. The first three
named were nominated and elected.
Two years later J. W. Miller was re
nominated and re-elected County Clerk,
and In the same primaries M. A. Miller
was chosen Democratic county central
committeeman for South Lebanon Pre
cinct and R. B. Miller was chosen for
the same office in North Scio Precinct.
In 1910 Milton A. Miller was re
elected State Senator and J. W. Miller,
the retiring County Clerk, was chosen
as a Representative in the State Leg
islature. In the Democratic primaries
that year Lee Miller was elected county
central committeeman from Syracuse
In the election two years ago J. W.
Miller, of Shelburn. was the Repub
lican nominee for County School Su
perintendent; B. M. Miller, of Halsey.
was the Democratic nominee for Coun.
ty Recorder, and A. C. Miller, of Cala
pooia Precinct, was the Democratic
nominee for Justice of the Peace of
District No. 1. In the Democratic pri
maries that year E. Miller was chosen
county central committeeman for San
tiam Precinct. -
The Millers running this year are
Arch C. Miller, who lives near Albany,

aspirant for the Republican nomina

Returning to his native Dublin for a
much-needed rest, the opportunity came
for him to display his talents in lre-
land. The Royal Italian Grand Opera
Company, of Drury Lane, was booked
in Dublin, and their leading tenor be
came sick on the eve of their appear
ance. Egan, with little preparation,
stepped into the breach, and sang the
very difficult role of Canio in 'Pasli
accl." He made such a hit that on the
following day he was signed ur as the
leading tenor of the grand opera com
pany. Ills success in that position is a
matter of operatic history.
But an Irish singer is only at Imme
In the songs of his native land. Ksan
and McCormack had first to win their
laurels on the grand opera stage, but
both returned to the melodies which
they learned as boys. On the termina
tion of their engagements Egan came
to New York to appear In concert, and
he met with a royal reception in the
Eastern cities. He is master of all the
great national songs of Ir.tand, both
in the Irish and English iuii-c-h-.
He is to make a special concert tour
of the West, appearing on the I'nast

Oakland. Los Angeles and other cities.
He will be assisted by a famous dra
matic soprano. Madame' Lillian Breton,
who also renders Irish melodies.
Egan's Portland concert will be giv
