C A. has decided to give an Indoor track
and field meet the last of the present
month. The meet is to be a blue rib
bon affair, and will be open to all mem
bers of the association.
The principal incentive for the meet is
the desire to get the material in the
field for the coming triangular meet
with the high school and the'' Houston
school. The association Is looking for a
hard struglge, and will be prepared for
it by getting the men into condition.
The events for the indoor meet will
be the 100 yard dash, the 220 yard dash.
the 440 yard dash, half mile run, mile
run, fence hurdles, pole vault, running
broad Jump, -running high jump, shotput
and other weight exercises.
This will be the first general athletic
meet the association has had - indoors.
On several occasions It has given the
athletes a chance at a number of events,
but never, the full college schedule. It
is thought there will be a large number
of athletes try for places on the team.

Boston, March 14. John L. Sullivan's
theatrical 'combination was reported
stranded at Derby, Conn., last week, but
John did not tarry, long to console the
members of the troupe. He ducked out
of town and joined Terry McGovern and
Joe Humphreys at Springfield, Mass.
Of course, Terry and Joe shook the old
gladiator as soon as convenient, for
John L., when .in his cups, is not a
pleasant traveling companion, even, to a
fighter. ; :' '
When Terry McGovern was training
to fight Toung Corbett at Bridgeport
over a year ago, Sullivan, who was then
located in that city, concluded to pay
a visit to McGovern's training quarters
in the country. John L. arrived at night,
and the first thing he did was to knock
on MoGovern's door. When Terry heard
the gruff voice of- the former hero of tho
ring he concluded that there was only
one thing to do, and that was to jump
out the window. :. This he did in a hurry,
John next entered Hughey McGovern's
room and almost frightened the kid out
of his wits. Hughey tried to hide be
hind a towel, but Sully made a swing at
him and the wind blew Terry's Illustri
ous brother down the stairs. Next he
paid a visit to Joe Humphreys' apart
ments and pulled Joa out or bed by the
leg. Humphreys was a bit surprised,
but greeted Sullivan good-naturedly and
then took a running Jump for the stairs.
Sullivan followed and caught Joe at
the bottom. For a few seconds there
was a wrestling match. that would have
made the Terrible Turk turn green, with
envy, and Joe was almost dead from ex
haustion when the familiar bark of the
house dog was heard.
The canine was Johnny on the spot
and went at Sullivan's trousers like they
were a ton of beef. Sullivan tried to
kick the dog, but the latter was out of
Sanger's way and hung on qntll he had
chewed away the broadest part of the
big fellow's pantaloons. It was some
time before any one ventured near, but
alter John had cooled down Humphreys
tendered him the - loan of another pair,
and Sully again wended his way back
to town, vowing never again to pay a
friendly visit to the McGovern camp.
Beck is at Bakersfield.
Hanlon is playing the hold up game.
One . week from Thursday the 1804
Castro says Portland or the bushes
for him. He don't like Hanlon.
Henry Krug is to leave San Fran
cisco shortly to report at Montgomery,
Ala., in the Southern league.
Arthur Anderson expects to leave
Portland Monday for Little Rock. He
recelyed a wire from Mike Finn, telling
him to report at once.
Andy Anderson is making a hit in the
practice at 'Frisco. According to those
who have watched him work he is much
faster than he was last season. Nice
work, Andy, keep It up.
"Ain't it a shame, a-measly shame,"
to have such officers at the head of a
league,' who will stand for a hold up by
a man of Hanlon's calibre?
After a peep into the dope book we
reckon that we will be able to make
Hank Harris' team "go some," even if
we do lose Castro.
Mike ' Fisher has certainly made a
ten-strike In adding the giant Overall
to the Tigers' pitching staff. The big
fellow is one of the best college pitch
ers in the country, and they usually are
able to deliver the goods.

George Reed, last season's manager
of the Spokane club, has left for the
south, where he Is to play during the
coming season. The Portland fans re
member Reed for enticing Hulseman to
do the double jump act last summer.
Beck worked out with the rest of the
Browns yesterday and will soon be in
playing form. He says he expects to be
right for the Chicago game next Wednes
day. Evidently the Portland pitchers are
on their mettle this season, for each of
the five are anxious to be selected to go
against the big leaguers.

There Is reason to believe there will
be an official clash beflbre the question
of whether Portland shall have a build
ing Inspector is settled. The hew build
ing ordinance committee, composed ot
Councllmen A. K. Bentley and J. P.
Sharkey, City Engineer W. C. Elliott,
Executive Committeeman. William Fleld
ner, Fire Chief David Campbell and
Fire Marshall W. R. Roberts, favors the
creation of the office, but Mayor Wil
liams does not at present '
-T might approve . of a building in
spector later, or I might even approve of
one now, if I saw the need of one at
present" said Mayor Williams. "But
with our full-paid fire department I see
no reason- wbyChief -Campbell cannot
exercise the duties of that office, as
he is now doing.' v ' . t'
"The city is running under very
heavy expense, and the creation of the
office of the .building inspector would
make another salaried position. Then,
too, there are mqny who desire to see
the office created that they may become
inspector." , . . ; .:
"As soon as the committee is through
with the building ordinance, the matte
of a separate ordinance for the ereatlon
of the office of inspector will be taken
up." said Chairman' A K. Bentley. "It
will contain an outline of the duties of
the inspector, rules for the Issuance of
building permits, how-; the . ' Inspector
shall be appointed, fees for building
permits and to whom they shall, be be
paid, and everything else concerning the
After the committee finishes this work
it will take up the special ordinance

will be amendments to the regular
"I consider the section providing for
pipe casing holes In basements one of
the most important in the new building
ordinance," said Chief Campbell of the
fire department. "Like many other sec
tions, it was taken from the San Fran
cisco ordinance, and was originated by
Chief Sullivan of the fire department of
that city. Under the new system fire
men will be able to get water circulat
ing noriles into basements without loss
of time, and in cases where the smoke
Is so thick no man can live in. It, the
circulating nostles are the only thing to
use. The noszle Is dropped through the
casing boles, and when the water is
turned on it throws a whirling stream
of great volume and force into all sec
tions of the basement. In this manner
the fire is sure to be quickly extjn
"As buildings are now constructed, ft
is necessary for the firemen to first
chop holes in floors in order to get hose
into the basements. -It can readily be
seen that much very valuable time is
thus lost at the outset of a fire.
"The sections providing for bulkheads
on docks and wharves are also very
strong, and reduce the danger from fire
to a minimum. The section providing
I for fire escapes on the roofs of all
buildings In the fire limits Is another ex
cellent thing. In this way there is a
means of escape from the roof to the
side escapes if the passage to the lower
floors are cut off."
The Portland Lumber company, the
Eastern and Western Lumber company
and D. C. O'Reilly have made arrange-,
ments for the bulkheads on their docks.
The two companies named have begun
to make preparations for their improve
ments. The dock to be built at the foot
of Madison street by O'Reilly will be
built with bulkheads when begun.
"The new building ordinance will
serve Portland's interests for at least
15 years," said Otto Kleeman, secretary
of the Architects' association.. "We se
lected the new one from several cities,
but principally from San Francisco. All
of the others are to far advanced for a
city .like ours. The St Louis ordinance,
for example, if plaoed In operation here
would effectually stop all manner of
building operations in the buslnen or
fire districts. This is owing to the M-eat
cost of structures built from materials
like steel that have to be hauledacross
the continent The city is not ready
yet for iron-clad provisions such as
"Rents for storerooms are lower in
Portland than in any city on the Pa
cific slope. I travel a great deal, all
over the coast, and I have not yet found
any city where rents for store buildings
are so low as here. Builders cannot af
ford to construct costly steel or stone
and steel structures on this account
The Investment is too great for the re
turns. But within 18 or 20 years these
conditions will change. Portland will
become in every sense of the word a
metropolitan city, and rents will be
sufficient to warrant the expenditure of
large sums in building."
NEW CARDINAL IS
IN CAY PLUMAGE
The Portland High School Cardinal,
official organ of the institution, for the
month of February is one of the neatest
and most perfect specimens of the print
er's art that has come from the press
in the form of a magaslne in this city.
It is bristling with - excellent special
articles, the leading story of the issue
being on the Lewis and Clark fair.
This is the first Issue under the new
management and is a most creditable
number. Recently there was a novel
contest for , the position of assistant
business manager, The person secur
ing the largest number of "ads." was
to have that honored place. It was won
by Henry Blagen. The contest brought
in a large amount of "business," and
the issue is full of all manner of ad
vertising. It is the deslrerof the stu
dents to make the Cardinal a paying
proposition. The profits are to be used
for the purchase of ref erenve books,
which are. not furnished in this city
by the board of education. The circu
lation of this issue was 1,000 copies.
The editorial, reportorlal and busi
ness staff of the Cardinal is now com
posed as follows:
. Editor-in-chief Arthur U. Plnkham.
'Associate editor Claude McColloch.
. Business manager Irving Potter.
