Civic Improvement Club of This City
Responsible for Much-Needed Im
provement Plana Drawn by J. A.
The long-wlshed-for improvement
about the grounds at the uptown de
pot is about to be made and the un
sightly piles of rock and rubbish are
even now being changed about and
removed preparatory to the parking
of the grounds according to the best
improved methods of landscape gar
dening. The plans contemplate the
improvement of the entire strip of
ground, extending from the turntable
to Spring street. When completed
the grounds will present the appear
ance of a city park and will be a
great improvement over the present
unsightly and barren waste.
That the improvement is being
made is due to the untiring efforts of
the Ladies' Civic Improvement Club
of this city'. For over a year the
ladies have been working with the
railroad officials in behalf of this
much-needed improvements Last fall
a number of prominent officials of
the company came to Ashland and
made a trip of inspection with a com
mittee of ladies, the result of whicu
was the assurance that the matter
would receive the proper attention at
once. The customary red tape of the
big corporations has been gone
through, the matter having passed
through 16 offices to date, and tne
decision of the company to make the
'Improvement is evidenced in the
work that is being done now. A crew
of men began last Monday and are
making rapid progress. ,
At the request of the club, J. A.
Gilbertson drew up th plans for the
parking of the grounds, which plans
have been accepted. They call for
parking of the slope to the east of the
tracks, from the south line to Spring
street. Shrubs and flowers' will be
planted here and the entfre tract
seeded down. About the round table
vines will be trailed against a wall
of boulders, and the same scheme
will be followed out on the bank west
of the track along Water street.' The
levej area west of the track will oe
powed to lawn grass and planted to
shrubs. Gravel paths will be pro
vided through the lawns. A cement
walk will be built from the present
temporary depot to Spring street.

FOUNTAIN OF GRANITE
Splendid Specimen of Ashland Prod-
uct is Used in Combination Elec
trolier and Drinking Fountain
One of the most perfect specimens
of granite ever seen in this country
has been used in the construction of
the combination electrolier and
drinking fountain being erected on
the corner in front of the Citizens'
bank. The entire product conies
from the quarries of the Penniston
Granite Company and the electrolier,
when completed, will form one of the
most imposing monuments to the
prowess of the local granite that is
to be found In the city. It is being
constructed at considerable expense j
ty the Citizens' uanK.
The pillar is two feet square at
the base and tapers to about ten
inches by successive blocks of rough
granite. At a convenient height
lrom the ground, a polished slab of
perfect granite eight inches thick
protrudes from the pillar, on either
side of which is provided a bubbling
fountain. At the summit of the pil
lar is placed a high-power electric
light, completing the creation of an

number that may be found in differ

industry that should be developed.

TRAVELER GETS 60 DAYS.
Stole KuitcaKe at lext and Then Got
. Walter Gates won't have to work
for the next 60 days. He has been
awarded free board and lodging at
the county jail until September 8 for
the theft of a suitcase. And it
seemed so easy, too, for no one was
looking when he picked up the suit
case and he was able to elude all
guardians of the law until he made
the fatal mistake of going back to
the place where his prize was hid
den. A. L. Maule and Gates were botu
passengers on the No. 15 southbound
last Sunday. Mr. Maule was on his
way from Portland to Los Angeles.
He got off at the station here and
set his suitcase down while be
strolled about the grounds. Gates
picked it up when no one was looking
and proceeded southward along the
track. As he passed an orchard
some distance from the depot a
small boy in a cherry tree was struck
with the unusual spectacle of a hobo
carrying a suitcase and greeted the
pedestrian with a yell. Gates was
apparently confused and kept look
ing backward as he proceeded up the
track! This was his undoing, for the
boy reported his suspicions to the. po
lice and a search was begun.
The suitcase was found in the
brush below the Mountain avenue
septic tank but no trace of the thief
could be found. Soon after, how
ever, two men were seen proceeding
from the depot in the direction of the
hiding place and Chief Oien followed
at a safe distance, coming upon the
men at the identical spot where the
cache had been made. Gates had
taken several articles from the suit
case, and intended to present his
friend with a pair of trousers. The
latter, however, escaped the law by
the mere fact that he was taken be
fore he had anything in his posses
sion. Mr. Gates won't need the suit
case for the next sixty days.

Ashland lioy Shot.
Louis Farleigh, an Ashland boy
who is camping with his parents on
the beach at Bandon. Ore., was acci
dentally shot through the leg by a
boy companion last Sunday while the
boys were cleaning their guns after
a hunting trip. They had been out
shooting squirrels and when back in
camp they were taking the gun
apait when it was accidentally dis
charged, the ball passing through the
boy's leg. He was removed to a hos

LECTURERS DEIGHT BIG AUDIENCES
RUSSELL AND SADLER SPEAK ON PROBLEMS OF THE DAY-BYRON'S
TROUBADOURS HAYE LARGEST HOUSE OF THE SESSION '
Charles Edward Russell, one of the
foremost sociological writers of the
age, author of a large number of
magazine articles dealing with the
social problems of the day, gave his
lecture on "Soldiers of the Common
Good" to a well-filled house last Fri
day evening. Mr. Russell is a con
vincing speaker, preaching a sound
doctrine that is full of sordid facts
and equally as full of hints for the
betterment of' his fellowman.
In his address, 'Mr. Russell pic
tured the horros of the lives of thou
sands of men and women in the
crowded portions of London and
other English cities, who live at the
starvation line. He dwelt upon the
conditions in the national life of Eng
land that make these circumstances
possible, drawing the appalling pic
ture of the starved wretches in the
very midst of wealth and opulence,
born without hope, living without
hope and dying without hope. He
cited as a fitting climax to the policy
of Great Britain in dealing with this
problem, the fact that at the time of
the South African war Englanr was
unable to raise an army at home be
cause of the frightful condition of
Bringing the scene to our own
country, Mr. Russell pointed out that
the United States is fast following in
the footsteps of England .with her
poor increasing in larger -proportion
than her population. He lamented
the large expenditure for naval arma
ment in the face of these facts when
so much good could be accomplished
with the same amount of money ex
pended in behalf of v the suffering
poor. The increase of sentiment in
favor of the workingman, the growth
of the movement in behalf of the
fallen brother, were cited as the
hopeful side of the problem, the lat
ter part of the lecture presenting less
of the sordid features of the situa
tion. Mr. Russell had the attention
of his hearers throughout the Ions
discourse anu was frequently ap
plauded. His own wide experience
as a reporter has given him the
knowledge that he presents first

Mrs. Florence Atkins Delivers Impressive Address (o Large
Audience Suffrage Finds Prcmiuenl Place in Discussions
W. C. T. U. day at Chautauqua was
a great success. It began with the
morning program in the urove. with
the discussion of initiative measure

.discussed by many.
The afternooii address by Mrs.
Florence Atkins was a most surpris

followed each other in rapid flow,
holding the audience in earnest
thoughtfulness, broken by frequent
and enthusiastic applause, for an
hour and a half. She Is pronounced

topic and called on Mrs. Dr. Shaw,
Congressman Reeder, Professor Bris

responded in arguments for the en
franchisement of women. Mrs. At

proved her mastery of this subject as
well as that of temperance reform.

In referring to the hobo problem.
Judge Sadler stated that the hobo
resembles the millionaire in that he
has a summer and a winter home,
the latter being in the large cities,
where he takes advantage of the five
and ten cent lodging house. From
this place he emerges in the spring
and starts for the country, carrying
with him the germs of disease and
filth, and the. one who feeds him at
the door runs the risk of taking some
disease from him. The judge con
demned the practice of feeding the
hobo, stating that such a practice en
courages the nuisance.
Judge Sadler is actuated in all his
work by an interest in the welfare of
his fellowman, an interest that makes
possible the forcible presentation of

Noble Ed D Rose has the following
to say regarding their stop here:
"In the afternoon of May 13, at

ASHLAND CARS WIN
Edwards in Kurd Captures Two
Firsts and Saviors in Rambler
Two Seconds in Med lord Knees.
Ashland cars carried off two-thirds
of the prizes offered in the automo
bile races in .Med ford last week, A.
J. Edwards, driving Fuller's Ford,
taking first in two events and W. J.
Saviers, in his reconstructed Ram
bler, capturing two seconds.
For more than 4 0 laps in a 45-lap
race, 3,000 people Thursday ' after
noon witnessed the prettiest automo
bile race, with two cars less than 5
seconds apart, ever seen In southern
Oregon. Then a rear tire blew out
and A. .1. Edwards In a Ford romped
home winner, making 50 miles in
52.44. W. J. Saviers in a 1907 Ram
bler was the man who crowded Ed
wards for 40 laps and fell to second
place at the finish when a tire blew
up. But the crowd had their mon
ey's worth as lap after lap passed
with the cars holding tehir own.
While Edwards won the race by
driving splendidly throughout and
using his head, premier honors go to
Saviers, who had a car which had
been sent into the junk heap last
year. Saviers' time on 40 laps did
not vary two seconds. He knew what
he could do and did it. He took the
curves in a masterly manher aiiu
never failed to make his time. His
engine got hot and his radiator went
dry, but on and on he rolled, fight
ing gamely to hold his place until
he lost a tire. Then a quick change
was made and he got back in time
to win second place.
Elmer Cox in a Locomobile won
first place in Friday's race, making
30 laps in 41.10. J. W. Saviers was
second in 50.00 and J. W. Keyes in
a Chalmers third In 52.30. Offut in
an Overland and Edwards in a Ford
did not finish, meeting with acci
dents. Driving an excellent race, A. J.
Edwards in a Ford won the 60-mile
free-for-all Saturday afternoon. El
mer Cox in a Locomobile was second
and J. W. Keyes in a Chalmers third,
The winning time was 1.16, Cox
1.21.30, Keyes 1.23.45. Three other
entries, Offut In an Overland, Sa
viers in a Rambler and Mark lu an
Oldsmohile, did not finish.
The race was tne prettiest as well
as the final one of the meet. There
were thrills to spare and the large
crowd shrieked its approbation time
and again as two cars would put up
a close race on a curve.
Saviers again won praise by his
heady and nervy driving, It being
generally conceded that had he been
driving a reliable car he woud have
won easily. As it was he stayed in
the race longer than a less deter
mined driver would have, in spite of
the most overwhelming' odds;
Just to keep up Ashland's reputa
tion, after the Rambler went to the
bad, Monte Brlggs piled out of the
grandstand and peeled his coat and
borrowed a machine and got Into the
motorcycle rnceH. Without trying
the track or machine and after being
out of the game for a year, he fin
ished second In a ten-mile race with
the handle bars of his machine loose.

SUGGESTION WORTH ACTING ON
. It. Kanaga of San Francisco

The Tidings is in receipt of a com
munication from A. R. Kanaga or
San Francisco, which we print be
low and which is self-explanatory.
The suggestion ouered in this com
munication is worth acting upon.
The normal buildings have been Idle
too long already and some sort of
institution should be established
there at onee. The letter follows:

Having seen your normal school
buildings and looked over your town
when I was there one year ago, it
has suggested to me the propriety of
sending this letter to the Tidings and
calling attention to the fact that Ash
land has the best facility for start
ing a school for girls of any town
or city in Oregon. You have the ele
gant climate, the position, the Chau
tauqua assembly, no saloons, a city
full of young ladles, almost equidis

I have visited Ashland nearly
every year since 1890 and it has al
ways impressed me as one of the very
best places in the west for a girls'
seminary. By way of illustration, let
them model the Ashland school after
the Miss Harker School for Girls at
Palo Alto, California. This seminary
for girls is only eleven years old, yet
it ranks above every girls' school in
our Rtate, and here are Borne of the
reasons for it:
In addition to a girl being educated
In the usual academic studies, she is
given lectures in deportment, beauty
of a pure life, obedience to parents.
respect for authority, reverance for
old age. From one to two hours each
day in open-air athletic exurcises.
Every girl must dress neat but plain,
mostly a shirt waist and skirt; not
a particle of jewelry unless it be a
pin or bracelet and plain, ordinary
ring. No costly dresses, no costly
hats. This Is done so that rich girls
can make no better showing than a
poor one. Now a similar school run
on these lines would soon be just as
w'ell known as the Harker School for
Girls at Palo Alto, and girls would
attend these from all parts, of the
west and Pacifies, coast. The line of
work would appeal to every father
and mother who had girls to educate.
I started out to write this letter
six months ago but never got at It
until today, and 1 now hope that
something will be done on the lines
I uamj'd herein, for in my estimation
it is the most valuable asset at your
commnnd to the end that Ashland
may come into its own. Less could
not be said. More need not be.
