There seems to be a greater demand for Black
Goods than Colored, although the season of the year
naturally would warrant the reverse of this demand;
but as we are not the ones to dictate to our customers
what they shall wear or how they should wear it, we
will comply with their request and give them Black
Goods unhesitatingly. Furthermore, to show that we
are not only pleased to give them what, they ask for,
we will quote them special prices on these goods for
ONE WEEK. These quotations are on FIGURED

Monday The Chronicle printed a long
article regarding an exciting race .which
is now on between a Portland company,
known as the Wapinitia Valley Irriga
tion Company, and a Dalles company,
known as the Juniper Flat Irrigation
Company, in reference to water rights
in Clear Lake region, each company
hfiying sent representatives to the loca
tion in the endeavor to secure Baid
right. On Monday H. R. Blue, repre
senting: The Dalles company, reached
the place nnder dispute and posted his
notice of location at 5:15 a. m., while
Gaston, representing the Portland com
pany, arrived on the scene at 10 o'clock.
Yesterday at 4:30 the Juniper Flat
Company filed in the clerk's office three
notices of location of water rights,' and
today at 11 :30 the Wapinitia Valley Ir
rigation Company filed its notice. There
no doubt will be a spirited contest re

Last night Eixty men of company B

who made the famous charge at San
Juan make their appearance, for they
mean business.. As the train etopped
at the Umatilla house, and the order
was given to bring forward their buckets
and load up with coffee, they proved
that although they were "fast black"
they would run, and soon they, returned
with the steaming beverage for their
hungry companions. It was amusing
to spectators to see one big fellow run
fro-r one car to the other with a large
pan of canned beef, and all began to
question whether or not it was "em
balmed." The detachment was short
a man, for as the train turned a curve
just as they were pulling out of Port
land the fellow was jolted from the car
step, where he sat, and cut his head.
The train stopped, but imagining he
was left, he bad received assistance and
scrambled up the bank and was on h:i
way back. He will probably join them

Portland has a venture in jonrnaliem
which many of its residents are not
aware of, but The Chronicle reporter
today had the privilege of perusing a
copy of the "Nob Hill Spy," published
every Saturday by Peters & Williams at
5 cents a month or 50 cents a year.
Surely the residents of Nob Hill need
not be without the news. One of its
editors is Bob Williams, whom bis boy
friends were not aware had taken to
The Spy is about 2x5 inches in di
mensions and has three whole pages de
voted to advertisements. The boys have
their own material and possessing a nice
little press, need no better outfit. Its
importance In newepaperdom is fully
attested by the following editorial, which
must have caused the Oregonian much
chagrin: "We have no time to argue
with the Oregonian, it must take care of
itself." Another editorial says: "This
paper is read over every week by hun
dreds of people. It doesn't cost much."
Like all other newspapers it takes note
of the accidents and has the following :
"A very narrow escape occurred on the
corner of Fourteenth and Everett streets
Tuesday afternoon. While the men
were fixing the telephone wires one of
the men dropped a hatchet lighting
within a few inches of a 'pass-byer.' "
Truely the newspaper field is widen
ing and the liberty of the press is not
restricted to old or young.

The question of bicycle riding on the
sidewalks of our city was then dis
cussed, and the marshal instructed to

property reported that the various stand
ing pipes used for filling the street
sprinkler are leaking and causing
puddles of water on the etreets, which
prove to be a nuisance.
