DIPHTHERIA IS A
MOBOPOLY Or nODVCZM HAS
DOUBLED P&XCB OP TOXZST COST
HOW ABOUT 94 A DOSB PBTSI
czah bats avmr should be
P BO TIDED BT STATE OB CITT.
.The. cost of treating diphtheria In a
family , has increased from 120 or 826,
- to 140 or 850. This is due to the ahti
' ..toxin trust, , which practically controls
the whole output of the country, arbi
trarily raising the price of their product
100 per cent. -The supply houses are all
located' In Chicago and the medical as
sociation of the state of Illinois is pre
' paring to make a. fight against the com
bine under the anti-trust -laws.
A member of - the state board of
health. In speaking of the effect the
. , raising of the price of toxin would
have in Portland, stated: "It is an out
. rage. Toxin now costs about 83 a dose,
, and to cure a case of diphtheria It. re-
quires three or four doses. If one child
In a family Is suffering from the malady
all the other children in the same house
must take the treatment to prevent the
contagion. This would, lh the average
family, bring the cost Of treatment up
to a sum which the average head of a
family cannot well afford. As the mat
ter stood before the raise the profits on
toxin must have been enormous and now
they are simply highway robbery. The
5 'only thing to do Is for some one to start
' an Independent concern for the produc
tion of toxin. This is an expensive un
dertaking and would involve considera
ble risk, as the combine would probably
"lower their prices so as to freese out
, any competition. ' ,,. ,"
"'T.T "In some cities and states the matter
of supplying toxin is in charge of the
boards of health. In Oregon this sys-
! tem could also be adopted by the appro
priation of a sufficient 'sum to the state
' board of health to provide a laboratory
nnd employ a doctor to extract the toxin
- from a horse Inoculated with the germs
' of the disease. : The Whole cost would
be about 33,000. "By .charging , even a
' moderate figure for the output the ven
ture would probably pay for Itself from
, the sales made in this state. Toxin Is
the recognised eure and preventive for
- diphtheria, and as this malady Is bound
. to exist among children the cure, should
be provided at the least possible cost."
The new Afblna extension of the Port
- land Street Railroad company will be
-.. .'completed in a very . short time, . but
nothing further has been done In regard
to completing other extensions, owing
to unfavorable weather. ' This, morn
ing W. I. Fuller, general manager of
the company, said: " .
. "In two weeks Hre shall have the Al
bins extension running. Owing to bad
;, weather we , have done but, very little
' outside work on the Burnslde-street line,
' . so I cannot say when that will be com-
:t j pieted." -.., '' :

WATCKMAH TO BE STATIONED

' XHCBEASED APPKOPBIATIOirS
TO BB MADE TOB SUBUBBAH KEO
Several members of the city council
were present yesterday afternoon at a
special session of the- park board and
urged " the improvement of suburban
parks. In'conSlderatioh of these appeals
the board rUTdouble the appropriations
for Macleay, Columbia and Terwllliger
parks. The . other outside ' recreation
grounds -owned by the city will also be
well cared for.
. No decision has been made as to the
proposed Fulton park of 35 acres, which
was offered to the city free of cost.' At
present It Is in the hands of a committee
and until a report comes from that com
mittee no definite scheme of Improve
ment can be considered. ' ' -
Superintendent ' Lowits has made a
special investigation of the parks in the
outside residence districts and says that
one reason why they have not been kept
in an Improved condition is because the
young boys and hoodlums in the neigh
borhood destroy the swings, "chairs,
etc.. without the least regard to the con
venience of the public. This has been
especially true at Terwllliger' park, and
hereafter a watchman will be kept on
duty a part of the time at least a fence
placed about the plot ar l any unseemly
conduct will be punished,' s
; The question of large property owners
in residence districts setting aside a por
tion of their holdings for parking pur
poses was again discussed and seems to
be in high favor with the authorities.
"It Is .of great advantage to everybody
concerned," remarked a member of. the
board after the session had adjourned.
'The board will agree to take care of
as few or as many of these park hlocks
a are donated to the city, but the more
ths better. Every time a man disposes
of a small part of his holdings in that
way it enhances the value of the remain
ing land enough to more than make up
for any loss.','
The. scheme of setting aside park
blocks In the various residence sections
of the city is something that demands
attention at the present time, in the
opinion of the officials. Now all the park
land necessary can be obtalnedl without
any inconvenience, but in years to come,
as the' municipality grows, it will be
much more difficult.
Ion Lewis Was appointed a committee
of on to straighten out the financial
tangle which followed Landscape Archi
tect John L Olmstead's visit to this
city. It seems that Mr Olmstead in his
bill charged' for the services of an as
sistant and the architected specifically
stated that no assistant was to accom
pany him. V"'"t " .v . .

Earl B. Shaw, the son of the secretary
of the treasury, was a passenger for
Yokohama on the steamer Coptla which
sailed from San Francisco, on Saturday.
He is to serve at Toklo as a Chinese inspector-
and will examine all Chinese
bound for that port This is a new regu
lation of the treasury department and Is
being tried as sn experiment Its pur
pose I to aid in preventing evasions
of the exclusion laws. , Mr. Shaw will
assist- Harold Bolts, who is to have
charge of 'the work. ' v
, The other cabin passengers on the
Coptio Included a number of war corres
pondents on their way to Japan. In the
steerage were 85 Chinese passengers, in
cluding 12 who were deported ' from
Texas. A Chinese slave girl escaping
from bondage was placed on the steamer
by Miss ' Donaldlne Cameron of the
Presbyterian mission. .
The cargo of the Coptic amounted to
8.800 tons and included 300 tons of beef
for the use of the Russian army at
Vladivostok. Tnls Is to be transhipped
for thtr Russian port at Nagasaki, but in

Local agents of the North German
Lloyd Steamship company, operating be
tween New Tork and London, have re
ceived tables showing the comparative
schedules of the big ships plying between
these ports during the past year, the re
port of the United States auperlntendant
of foreign mails being taken as authority.
This report shows the Lloyd line to lead
the procession. Its ships Kaiser Wllhelm
der Orosse and Kronprins Wllhelm mak
ing, respectively, the average time be
tween New York and London through the
year df ,152.3 hours and 154.3 hours. The
ship with the- next ; lowest average was
the Kaiser Wllhelm ,11, with an- average
of 161.1 hours. This ship is also a Lloyd
vessel. The quickest trip of the year be
tween Nw York arid London was made
In 148.6 hours, the Kronprins Wllhelm
establishing this record.
The swiftest boat of the Hamburg
American . line, the Peutschland, most
nearly approached the record of the Lloyd
vessels, making the trip in the average
time of 1617 hours. The best Cunard
boat, the Lucanla, took an average time
of 170.6 hours for the voyage. The White
Star's best boat, the Oceanic, required
1T3.1 hours, and of the American line the
Philadelphia, despite, her name, proved
the swiftest, but she took an average
time of 178.9 hours. The general average
of all lines- Is about 300 hours, -and the
slowest average time was by the Cymric
of the White Star line, she taking 238.7
hous and only making three trips during
the year, while many of the other boats
mentioned made from 10 to 15 trips.
