In a remote and isolated clearing in

the O. W. P. Estacada line, Japanese
soldiers have ' been assembllnc every

waiting room where excuralonlats may
await the arrival of trains.
It Is In this Isolated but Ideal parade
ground that a company of Japanese
soldiers has been solns through regular
Infantry evolutions and maneuvers for
several weeks. Ourlng the week these
little brown soldiers labor lit the Camps
which abound along the line of the O.

clnsrlng to Imagine they sre once more
on the banks of the Yalu with an oppos

During their maneuvers a portion of
the Japs are armed with rifles. Others
who have no firearms use sticks as
weapons. - They drill as If they were tn

hut they have frequently been attracted
on Sunday afternoons by the noise of
the ununlforroed troops. The sharp
commands of the officers, the reporta
of volleys of rifles attracted their at
tention, but until the last few days
they gave the matter little or no atten
tion. -
Last Sunday, however, a larre num.
bar of Portland people went out the
O. W. P. line to seek a quiet piece to
spend the day. Many selected the neigh
borhood of Currlneville and In the af
ternoon had an opportunity to observe
the drills of the Japanese laborer-soldiers.
They also thought little of It at
nrst, cut arter It nad continued for
several hours they watched the actions
of the Japanese more carefully.

' The Japs were under the command of
an Individual who. In manner and ac

gave order with a sharp voice of com
mand and under him ware 'lieutenants

the Japanese led thefr observers to be
lieve that they were maneuvering
against the target ae If It were an
enemy. -.i .
Advancing diagonally across the
clearing on the run they would sudden
ly drop to the ground and open fire
upon the supposed enemy or fort. Ris

Thosn who witnessed (he actions of
the Jans declare that the little brown
men were undoubtedly going through
skirmish tactics and that they contin
ued at their occupation all tne after
noon. Late In the afternoon many of
the Portland people who had aeen the
practice met at the currlnsvuie station
and agreed that the Japa were practic
ing their Infantry tactics.' No one made
a thorough examination or went cloae
enough to the Japs to scrutinise their
aennss aiuaiousiy.
There are hundreds of Japanese era-
floyed at the -various logging camps In
hat vicinity and in the conntructlon
gangs of the Oregon Water Power A
Railway company. Many sre recent ar
rivals and are veterans of fhe Russo
Japanese war. They atlll retain their
connection with the Japanese armv. for
all Japaneee are subject at any time

Whether these Oregon Japanese are
going through these military tactics
merely as a pastime In remembrance
of their deeds in the recent' war. nr
whether they have received orders to
be In readiness for call to arms is
not known. Those who sre emnlnred at

R. W. Watson ef Tillamook ' believes
the idea Is a very vsiusole and practical
one, and has ofered to asslat bv sub
scription and in other way. He says
many others in Tillamook county wlli
subscribe and lend all poealble assist

said. In reply to a letter from K. C
Whether Or not thev are acting nn their
own initiative er under orders were fu
Olltnar, secretary of the Portland cham
ber of commerce:
"The Wilson Rivet route la exactly
IT miles from JTorest drove to Tilla
mook, and1 In the neighborhood of 44
miles from rorest Grove to Portland,
which makes it 7 miles from Portland
to Tillamook Instead of IT to miles,
ss stated In your letter. It la tS mllee
from Portland to Tillamook as the crow
"The summit of the Coast rang on
the Wilson river s In the neighborhood
of J.000 feet above sea level. The flrsi
five miles from Galea City to the too of
the steep climb is a rise of 1.609 feet,
and tbla elevation cannot to my knowl
edge be lowered unless another rout
and naaa la found, but this would neces
sitate another road, and perhaps an In
crease of distance.
"The southern route from Portland to
Tillamook via Sheridan and Dolph, Is
exactly lit mile, and the Increased dis
tance Is easily made up as against tha
poor road on the 1 mile route via the
Wilson river. The Wilson river rout
com through green timber for 40
miles, where the sun rarely spreads its
rays beneath the green foliage, while
on the Sheridan route the roada dry out
quickly, being an open and cleared coun
try, with little green timber along the
road." r
Mr. Watson added that he would lend
assistance to the building of either road
that should b selected after thev were
viewed by a man competent to Judge and
select the beat route. He eeld consider
able aaslatanc could he seenred in Til
lamook county by subecrlntlons of eauh
and work. The road cnuld be Improved
so that tha sutnmnhlle trio could be
