Retail Grocers Decide to
Close Stores to Take Part
in "labor , Celebration
Trouble Again Arises Over
Retail srroeers of Portland have de
cided to Ktv their employe a e he nee to
take part in the big Labor day celebra
tion either all day or. at leaat part of
fhe day. Some of the stores will re
main dosed all day and others -'In
neighborhoods where it is impossible to
close all day will keep open half a. day.
In tb main most ofvthe clerks and em
ployes will set a holiday. Decisive ac
tion wataken with this end in view at
rr :T.g of the Retail Grocers' asso-
ijbcu last Tuesday evening.
rjL labor headouartera toiav e Trance-
merits were oelaa completed to name the
rand marshal of the day for the mon
ster parade next Monday. Final arrange
ments were also being perfected for the
freat snorts program. A few additional
matures will be tacked on at tne last
moment and nothing Is being left un
done to make the demonstration this
year the greatest In the history of or
ganised labor in Multnomah county.
Again today the chairman of the
sports committee of the affair wss noti
fied by an agent of the Humane society
that any attempt made to drop a live
turkey from a parachute by a balloon
ist would result in trouble for the or
ganisations. "That live turkey cannot be dropped,"
said the agent.
"We can't see why it cannot be let
loose," said one member. "I know that
a live turkey will sail along in a dead
straight line in whatever direction it' is
pointed and by compass any one fol
lowing it will And it when It lights on
the ground if they travel fast enough.
There 1s absolutely, no danger of the
bird being killed by the drop."

IRRIGATION FAVORED ;
IN THIS DECISION
(Special Dispatch te Tbe Joaraal)
Olympia, Wash., Aug. 10. In reply
to an Inquiry on the subject from State
Highway Commissioner J. M, Snow, the
attorney-general holds that in the con
struction of state roads "If it la neces
sary to conduct the waters of a private
irrigation ditch across said state roads
in permanent conduits metal or con
crete, such conduits must be constructed
at the expense of the state, the expense
to be charged to the joint state and
county highway fund."
The attorney-general ssys that from
an examination of the statutes It ap
pears that the only duty imposed upon
a Drlvate owner of an Irritation ditch
Is to plaoe a "good, substantial bridge
not lens than li feet In breadth," over
his ditch on any highway, and that this
could not be construed to Include metal
or concrete conduits.-
PLAN CHANGES IN '
(Journal Special Service.)
Washington, Aug. SO. Changes In
uniform for the enlisted men of the
army, with a view to making It more
practical for every-day service purposes,
are receiving attention at the war de
partment just now. Various recommen
dations hava been received on the sub
ject, one of which has come from Col
onel L. M. Maus, whose observations are
based on hie experience with the mi
litia in the field. He believes that the
present regulation felt hat is tin
suited for campaign purposes In a hot
or troolcal climate, and that the In
fantry marching trousers should be
mads full around the knee, and tha cuff
extended down the leg far enough to be
enclosed ny tne top or tne marcning
shoe, thus doing away with the legging.

the dead man and of the diagram was

of the salt water on the body? In the
