people began buying tickets early

of the management, at least 8000

As the circus proceeds On . its ten
allotted days, the tendency is in
creasingly noticed in the crowd to
assemble on the lower floor and
move about, playing the wheels and
consuming refreshments rather, than
sitting, "languid and laay-like," in
the gallery. Although this leaning
toward more than a passive enjoy
ment on the part of the patrons
subtracts some from the additional
admittance customarily paid for
balcony seats, the deficiency is more
than made up by the business that
the wheel-ticker game booths are
doing." Four large new booths were
set up yesterday, two for kewpies
and one each for hams and silver
ware, to accommodate those many
persons frantic to stick their dimes

Miss Mildred Wakefield and Miss
Catherine Hutch each tu: led in en

the bulkiest that have been re

ground rapidly and it is predicted
they will be not more than a bee's

the final count is in.

Executive Would Have City Pre
pared to Protect Itself and
Council Also Favorable.
Mayor Baker wants a war chest,
and if the city council has its way
he will have it, $90,000 strong. The
mayor wants the city prepared to
protect itself when emergencies
arise, such as the waterfront strikes
last year. During the last fiscal
year Portland spent J43.477.65 for
emergency protection of property
and citizens, mostly along the wa
terfront. Friday the council adopted a
resolution requesting the. tax super
vision and conservation commission
to set aside $o0,000 for use during
the next fiscal year for emergency
police protection, this sum to be
used only after $40,000 had been ex
pended out of the amount set aside
for general emergencies.
Friday's council, meeting found
the mayor and commissioners in
tensely concerned over the Astoria
emergency and ready, anxious and
willing to do all in their power to
assist and alleviate distress. How
ever, no word came from the down
river city in the afternoon and the
council adjourned to meet again
in the morning at 11:30 o'clock and
be prepared to grant whatever as
sistance is needed.
On recommendation of the pur
chasing agent bids for furnishing
auto tires for city use were accepted
as follows: Cummings-Carson com
pany, motorcycle tires for six
months; Marshall-Wells company,
auto chasings and tubes for six
months ; Brunswick-Balke-Collender
company, pneumatic truck casings
and tubes for six months; Cascade
Sales company, smooth solid tires
for six months, and Edwards Tire
shop, non-skid solids and cushion
tires for three months.

VANCOUVER, Wash., Dec. 8.
(Special.) Threats of an injunc

enforcement of the stage terminal
ordinance, passed at the last ses
sion of the council, have apparently
failed to materialize in court action
and construction of the terminal
will begin at once. The Julius Sax
building at Fifth and Main streets
is to be remodeled at a cost of more
than $5500 for the terminal. The
building permit was issued today
after William Paul and H. E. Par

had conferred with the stage oper

chief opposition to the ordinance,
declared that the location was a
poor one and that the ordinance had

FOOD GOES TO PREMIUM
Portlanders Sent to Astoria Feed
Guards and Babies.
ASTORIA, Or.( Dec. 8. (Special.)
Pood went to a premium today in
Astoria, owing to the burning of
most of the reLil stores. As a pre
caution a delegation representing
the city of Portland and the Red
Cross took on a supply of ham
sandwiches at Rainier. All res
taurants were out of commission,
so the Portland delegation dis
tributed their sandwiches among
the guards and waited until they
reached Seaside before they ate. A
newspaper party that arrived at 5
o'clock had two bottles of milk.
When the reporters learned ' that
the milk supply was cut off they
took theif milk to the hospital and
it was used for a group of babies.
Seven long board tables, reminis
cent of cantonment days, nave been
set up in the basement of the TLovel
garage, which was untouched.
Meals will be served there.
