BOND CASE GOES HIGHER
Jndso Cleeton Takes Action Which
Allows Appeal on Bridge Issue.
Without objection from any of the
attorneys interested in the case, Cir
cuit Judge Cleeton yesterday sustained
the demurrer to the complaint in the
friendly suit brought by T. N. Stop
penbach to restrain the County Com
missioners from issuing Jl, 250,000
bonds for the construction of the Co
lumbia River interstate bridge, thereby
dismissing the suit. Notice of appeal
to the Supreme Court was given, from
which tribunal a decision is wanted on
the legality of the bond issue.
Yesterday's ruling by Judge Cleeton
upholds the validity of the bond issue,
but was made without arguments that
the case misht be hurried to the higher
court. If Judge Cleeton is sustained
In the Supreme Court, the Boston at
, torneys examining the bonds will be
able to report favorably on the issue
nd the bonds will be prepared and sold
at the earliest possible date.

which will be used in conjunction with

EWBANK CAR IN SERVICE
Southern Pacific Gives Portland In
vention Practical Test.
The Ewbank electric transmission
oar, designed and built by H. B.
Kwbank, Jr., of Portland, has be.en
placed in service by the Southern Pa
trifle between Roseburg and Glendale.
It will be given a 30-day test, taking
the place of the regular motor car pre
viously in use there. The first run
was made last Monday and every stop
was made on time.
The Ewbank car is intended to take
the place of both the gasoline motor
and the electric trolley. It generates
its own electric energy on board and
transmits it to each set of wheels the
same as an electric car. It burns dis
tillate instead of gasoline, thus effect
ing a great saving in fuel.

ton Exhibits Decided by Road.
One big corrl show combining the ex
hibits of both Oregon and Washington
will be held next Fall at Walla Walla
under auspices of the O.-W. R. & N,
Company. This show will take the
place of the two shows held last year
at Pendleton and Colfax.
j . The O.-W. R. & N. Company has of
fered $500 in cash prizes for this year's
show and it is reported these awards
probably will be augmented by offers
of farm machinery from implement

The Oregon Electric has completed
double - tracking between Garden

ANTARCTIC TRIP PLANNED
Swedish lCijjodJt ion to Visit Graham's
T. a lid and Study Whaler.
lDMON. April S. It has been
learned here that the polar explorers.
Dr. Nordenskjold, Admiral Polander and
Ounar Andersen, are planning an expe
dition to the Antarctic which will cover
about the same ground as the liritish
Ktackhousn party of 1914. Definite
plans have not been made, but it is
probable that tho expedition will land
an observation party on the east coast
of Graham s Land. This party will be
composed of six men and will remain
there for five years.
J. foster Stackhouse, leader of the
British 1914 party, xald that one of the
objects of the Swedish expedition will
be the study of whales, whose habits
are still unknown.
Whatever friction there may be be
tween the Shackleton and Austrian ex
peditions there will be nothing but
amity between the stackhouse and
Swedish parties. Stackhouse already
has beenin communication with Dr.
Nordenskjold. giving him particulars
of the British expedition as far as they
concern Graham's Land, and the Swed
ish leader has promised to reciprocate
as soon as his plans are complete.
Dr. Nordcnsk jold's last expedition to
the polar regions. In 1903, came to grief
when his . ship, tho Antarctic, was
crushed in the ice off Graham's Land
and the crew had to make its way
north, being ultimately picked up by an
cann'ry, being built tn the Columbia
Itiver flat, is completed, and the proj
ect promises to be an essential and
plausible enterprise. The grade is to
be an easy one for the ranchers of
the White Salmon River Valley.

CZAR'S EDUCATIONAL. CAMPAIGN
POSHED WITH VIM.
Railway Car Pitted On t With Exhibits
Showing Effects of Alcohol . to Be
Used in Reform Ctuiailt.
ST. PETERSBURG, ' April 18. The
educational . campaign against intem
perance has started with a vim in Rus
sia. At the instance of the Minister of
Ways and Communications, a large rail
way car has been fitted out with ex
hibits showing the results of excessive
indulgence in alcohol. It will be taken
all over the railways Oi Northern Rus
sia by a lecturer and several attend
ants. The car will be sidetracked at
the principal stations and lectures on
the evils of drink will . be given to the
railway employes. The lectures will be
illustrated by stereopticon slides.
It is increasingly apparent that the
recent changes in the Cabinet were due
solely to the desires of Emperor Nich
olas to strengthen ' his campaign
against alcoholism. - He is determined
to do away with "the national vice,"
an,d he has instructed hisj new minis
ters to attack the drink evil vigor
ously. It is understood, that the. new ad
ministration proposes to reduce the
production of vodka, .the national
drink, to increase the . penalties on
illicit trading and to refuse hereafter
to consider drunkenness as a mitigat.

How the government proposes to
meet the loss of revenue on vodka is
not known. Receipts from taxes on
liquors last year were $101,540,000,
against total receipts of $6,481,118,000
from all sources.
The government intends also to take
measures to give financial aid to small
farmers and rural Industries. The form
of this relief has not yet been decided
but it is probable that it will include
a system of co-operative country
banks, based on the system in opera

Japanese street .artists from Tokio. who
have set up their household gods In
the working class quarter of Javel on

an immediate appeal to the fancy of

low belonging to a retired business
man. Between 10 and 11 at night, and
again just before daybreak the curtains
of the house occupied by the owner and
his grandson are shaken feverishly as
if by an invisible hand. At the same
time a dull thumping shakes the walls
and the floors, causing the plaster to
fall from the celling. ,
Electricians thought perhaps it might
be caused electrically, but a thorough

It is thought by the non-superstitious
that there may be a subterranean pas
sage from the old castle of Fougeres,
near by, communicating with the
"haunted house," and that the phe

of wind, or by someone who is desirous
of acquiring the "haunted" premises at
a low price.

lambs were sacrificed over the steel rails
as a dedication, to obtain the blessing of
