The proposition to hold a carnival
next August In aid of ' the temple
planned - by the west side camps was
endorsed by George' Washington camp,
Woodmen of the World, last night To
night the question will be raised in the
Portland camp. Thursday night Pros
pect and Prosperity camps will consider
the question and Friday Webfoot camp
will take It uri.
The wrangle In the ranks of the Wood
men waa caused by the proposition of
Contracting Agent Leavltt of the South
ern Carnival company, who is desirous
of conducting a carnival in this1 city
under the auspices of the Woodmen of
the World. If the proposition is ac
cepted, the carnival will be held during
the month of July or August Those of
the individual camps which favor the
proposition propose to raise funds in
.that way for the erection of a Wood
men's temple on the west side of the
Willamette river. ' Those who oppose it
persistently refer to the incidents con
nected with the last carnival that was
given under the auspices of the Wood-
: men.
i The articles of incorporation of the
Woodmen of the World Building asso
ciation specify the powers of directors
. as follows;
"First to purchase and acquire lots
and lands at any place within the state
; . of Oregon, and to hold, possess, Improve,
lease, sell, mortgage or otherwise dis
pose of such lots or lands in Buch man-
ner as may be deemed fit for the best
. interests of the Incorporation.
, "Secondly, to construct and build, and
to facilitate and assist in the construc
tion and building, and to lease, own or
control buildings to be used as camp
, and circle rooms by the Woodmen of tha
World or for any other purpose.
"Thirdly, to .borrow money on bonds,
notes or otherwise for the general pur
poses of the incorporation, and to mort
. gage any or all of its property to secure
payment therefor. To do all things
necessary or proper for the accomplish
ment of the purposes and objects herein
specified."
, ., "The last sentence certainly gives the
directors the right to conduct a carni
val," said a member of the order today.

"None of the claimants have made
their amounts high, merely stating the
actual damage done," said Attorney
Hayes. "They think that the city ought
willingly to remunerate tnem for the
damage, for t.iey claim It was due to
the negligence of the. city."
The Tanner creek ' sewer break oc
curred five weeks ago, and the worst
of the flood came about two weeks
later. The waters backed up and covered
the field of the Multnomah Amateur
Athletic club to a depth of 15 feet. The
damage alleged to have been wrought In
the above cases occurred when the dam
that held the lake back of the engine
house at Sixteenth and Washington
streets broke and let out 'tho flood.
The water raised several feet almost
Instantly, filling basements and doing
other damage.
Mayor Williams and City Attorney
McNary- stated at the time that any
claims for. damages would not be paid
by 'the city unless it was so ordered by
the courts. Both contended the city was
not to blame. " City Engineer Elliot
stated that he warned the people to
clear out their . basements before the
dam broke.
Other and larger damage claims will.
In all probability, be presented to the
city council' in the near future. Among
the-claimants will probably be the offi
cials of the athletlo club and Park &
Kolb, butchers. The former stated that
the club grounds had been considerably
damaged, and-the latter stated they lost
about $1,000 worth, of salted meats and
chickens. .
some other- out-of-town point where
they will be disposed of easily. :
The second robbery of this sort was
reported by Contractor Frank Rlepl.
The value of the tools stolen from him
Is said to be $50. Mr. Riepl's place of
business Is at 84$ Russell street but
last night the tools were left at a house
being built on the corner of Williams
avenue and Ivy street This morning
Riepl gave a complete description of the
missing articles.
The police are of the opinion that the
tool robberies are being committed -by
some well organized gang whose spec
ialty is tool stealing. During the past
winter, dosens of robberies of tools
have been reported to the police.

W. C. Goods, the negro highwayman,
has so far eluded the efforts of the po
lice who are trying to recapture him.
Ooode, aa The Journal has told, waa ao
oused of snatching a purse from Miss
Jennie Hart man a few ftlghts.ago. His
vicum recognisea mm, out ne was re
leased as a result of a blunder by
Chief Hunt .
The negro was identified by Miss
Hartman aa the man who enatched a
purse from her hand last Saturday
night Her lister also Identified Ooode
as the robber. Day and Welner worked
hard on the case two days, -and landed
the man on a dime novel clue.

a brakeman, who put him off the train.
As a result of the fight he is reported to
be carrying a four-inch cut across bis
face, caused by a blow from a lantern
in the brakeman's hands.
Detectives Day and Welner did not
appear at the station this forenoon, and
It is supposed that they are pursuing
the purse-anatcher. The officers would
know the negro as far as they could
see htm, and as he is badly wanted in
Portland, they will keep on his track
until they capture him.
The detectives stated that they had
enough evidence to convict Ooode of
robbery. Besides being Identified by
Mlsa Hartman, the officers proved
Goode's story falsa When arrested,

San Francisco. March $0. The flood
situation in northern and central Cali
fornia is still a matter of great con
cern, although it is believed that It is
nearlng the crisis today, and, according
to the local weather bureau's predic
tions, the worst will have been passed
by tomorrow night .
Despite the break at Colusa the river
continues to rise and further damage is
expected.
. There is little rain today and It Is too
cold for the snow to melt in the moun
tain a Therefore it Is believed the wa
ters will begin to recede tomorrow.
Antloch is flooded today and Jersey
Island, a few miles up the San Joaquin
river, is submerged. All crops are
ruined on both sides of the San Joaquin
river for miles and miles above and be
low Antloch. The river Is rising this
afternoon at the rate of an inch an
hour, and great .fear is expressed by
those who live near the danger line.
Along the banks of the river where
many ranch houses are situated, nothing
but desolation la apparent. The serious
phase of the situation is that it will be
impossible for farmers to reclaim much
of their land, either this season or next
as mud and silt covers rich agricul
tural ground in some, places to the
depth of ten feet.

Although they know nothing definite
about the matter, it Is generally be
lieved by the officers on the Indrapura
that the Indra liners will continue to
ply between the Pacific coast and the

pany. They are of the opinion that
they will be either chartered by a Pugct

' From the Chicago Record-Herald.
We have had the "trolley face" and
the "trolley heart" Now comes trolley
appendloltie. And appendicitis from this
Is more common than any other kind of
appendicitis.
This doee sot mean, however, that the
Inflammation of the vermiform appendix
brought on by riding In the trolley ear
is any different from any other kind of
appendicitis. Neither is it caused by the
rocking motion of the car, the Jarring of
the trucks, or by the peculiar form of
motive power.
The trolley car has made us lasy.
Walking has become a lost art We now
ride where we formerly walked and
where we should walk. The trolley oar
Is largely responsible for this, and so
the trolley car is largely to blame for
the alarming Increase in appendicitis.
This Is the view of Dr. Thomae W.
Lauterborn of New York. ' If the en
trance to the vermiform appendix Is not
kept tightly closed small particles of
waste are forced Into it, Inflammation
seta in and results in appendicitis. When
the abdominal and 'intestinal muscles
are kept continually active by walking
the entrance to the appendix is always
closed, says Dr. ' Lauterborn, and there
Is no danger of appendicitis.
When a man begins to take to the
trolley car, the steam car and to car
riages in making short trips he loses
that Jolting and muscular activity
which are necessary to keep the con
tractile function of the intestinal organs
operative and in healthy condition, and
he therefore Invites appendicitis.
That there is something in this theory
is indicated by the fact that appendi
citis does not flourish In the country as
It does in the city. That walking Is
among the most healthful of all outdoor
exercisce is universally conoeded. As a
preventive of appendicitis It la simple
and inexpensive compared to an opera
tion by a fancy surgeon.-'..

From the Engineering- Magasine.
One of the most interesting tripe af
forded by the present transportation fa
cilities of. Peru Is that over the Oroyo
railroad, which now rune from Callao
to the gold fields of Cerro de Pasco. It
la considered one of the wonders of the
Peruvian world, and the original con
tract was taken by Mr. Melggs at 137,
800,000 in bonds at 7- It is certainly
the greatest feat of railroad engineering
in either hemisphere, and as a .specimen
of American enterprise and workman
ship It suffers nothing by comparison.
It was begun In 1870 and finished In
1876, and additional work has since been
done on it . Commencing In Callao, it
ascends the narrow valley of the Rimao,
rising nearly 1,000 feet in the first 46
miles. .
Thence it goes through the Intricate
gorges of the Sierras till it tunnels the
Andes at an altitude of 18,646 feet the
highest point in the world where a pis
ton rod Is moved by steam. The wonder
la doubled on remembering that the ele
vation is reached In 78 miles, f
One of the most remarkable things in
connection with this road la that be
tween the coast' and summit there is
not an inch of down grade. The diffi
culties encountered in its construction
were extreme landslides, falling bowld
ers, soroche (or the difficulty of breath
ing in high altitudes) and verrugas, a
disease known only along the line of
this road, characterised by a species of
warts breaking out all over the body and
bleeding.
About 8,000 workmen were engaged at
one time, and between 7,000 and 8.000

door on their way to' 'the homes

land whose family needs a piano
; that cannot see the wisdom of ,
- grasping an opportunity of - this
kind when it would only be by
such an opportunity that his fam

such people right here in Port
