The scrips of races for the American

Shamrock III and the defender, K

American bout lias shown a decided
superiority and it seems certain that
the result of the races will be the

Lou Dillon, a California trotter, is
now the world's champion and bus
made a new trotting record, a niilo in

years ago that sportsmen gave it as
their opinion that tho two niinnte

Tho present condition by which the
army is commanded by a chief of
staff, who is directly subject to the
secretary of war, is one that will
make all sorts of trouble for us if we
should ever engage again in a serious
wnr. The regulation is well enough
perhaps, in time of peace, but in war
time, when errors are costly, we
should soon find ont the disadvantage
of having the army Iiatniiered and im
peded by bureaucrats and politicians
instead of being commanded by war
riors. "A mustache protects the eyesight
It is only mon with smooth shuveu

statemeut was made the other day by
u occalist. "Thero are certain deli
cate little optio nerves," ho went on,
"that are connected with the upjior
lip, and every time tho lip is shaved,
the uerves are hurt. A light shave
with a good razor, hurts them only a
little. A close shave hurts them very
much. Since theso nerves are in di
rect comniunlciit Ion with tho eye,
whatever they suffer, tho eye suffers,
and that is why when the razor hurts
the lip, such a Hood of tears comes
gushing forth. Ilccauso it is fashion

The city council held no meeting on
Taeiday ovenlng, the reason for the
failure being that old, well worn and
thoroughly familiar condition, "no
quorum." Two of tho cooucilmoii
were out of towu and under the ex
isting conditions this is all that is
necessary to block all proceedings.
It takes live for a quorum. When
there Is a full council of eight mem
bers, a quorum is almost always ob
tainable. Now, when there are but
si I members, a quorum seems to be
ail exceptional occurrence. The
council makes no move toward filling
tho vacancies and it Is well under
stood that no such Intention is en
tertained. Yet the majority of the
council, we understand, are in favor
of filling the aucaclcs. They are re
strained from any action by the min
ority, who, having the power to
block ull the city business, are able
to dictate terms in some measures to
the entire council. Unless the citi
seus luanifust their displeasure l

or some like measure, this is the con
rlltlon that will prevail to the end or
As the anniversary of the disastrous
forest fires of last year approaches,
the subject comes to tho front mid the
newstmpcrs, not only of Oregon, but
of many other states are discussing
plans for iiilnlmiring this dunger.
The failure of present methods to ac
.'oniplUh their purpose Is admitted
everywhere, but the remedies advanc
ed are few. To increase the penal
ties for setting out fires, is the only
improvement that seems capable of en
tering the minds of the greater num
ber of the legislators. An Individual,
if he has a timber tract, that he is ex
ceptionally anxious to protect from
the flames, will go around at the
pnqicr season ami sot tire to the
brush lieiijis and iutlamiiiable ac
cumulations, and mi will place lib
property in some degree of safety.
Why some similar plan to tnis cannot
enter the minds of tlume who look
after the interests of a common
wealth, and receive at least consider
ation, is one of the unsolved enigmas.

DROWNS IN NEWPORT SURF
Kleeman Ventured Too Far
And Lost His Life.
Friday about 11 o'clock, William
Kleemauu of Portland, was drowned
while surf-bathing off the ocean beach
at Nye creek near Newport in full
view of a thousand horror-stricken
j snd exi-iti d spectators. The surf was
light and the enjoyment of riding
over the swells tempted the young
man to venture out too far from shore.
He soon became exhausted and cried
for help, which was at once promptly
-responded to by C. A. Burden, pro
fessor of physical caltare at the
University of Oregon, Eugene, and
Mr. Hush, of Salem.
They succeeded in reaching Klee
man. llurdcn taking hold of his
ami ou one sido and Bush putting his
hand ou Kleemuu's shoulder, they
made heroic and desperate efforts to
make the shore but tho current seem
ed to set otf shore, and they could
make little or no progress; They
continued, however, to struggle and
encourage the now almost helpless
young man, until they, too, becoming
exhausted from their fearful exertions,
were conis-lled to give up their tusk
and battle for their own lives witli
the tremendous current
While the three men were fighting
bravely for life in the surf, others
renhed to the bathhouse for life-preservers
and lines. In tho quest for
lines much precious time was lost.
Several pieces found were fastened
together, and one end taken by Kent,
of the lifesaviug station, who swain
with it toward the drowning youth,
while, to lengthen the line other
bathers joined hands and formed a
human life-line extending into tin
surf as far as wifely could srmit.
lint even with the human extension
ihe line proved about SO feet too short
to reach the doomed man. Dr. Wal
lace, of Albany, Mr. Kegal, E. L.
Karr and K. J. Ueardien, of Oregon
City, C. D. Hare, of Portland, and
S. li. Houston of Hillsboro, made
noble efforts to rescue Kleemauu, but
before they could reach him ho went
low n and was seen no more.
BOILER SAFELY LANDED
Granite Hill Machinery Is Re

Tho big boiler for the Granite Hill
mine wus loaded on a heavy wagon ou
Thursday and on Friday, drawn by
night horses, started for the mine.
The knowing ones prophesied that the

steep pitches mid sharp curves with
which the lmse creek road abounds.

some dilliciilty and delay, no serious
trouble was experienced and the boiler

Iu going down Grave crnek one day
last week, the writer saw a man
coming up tho creek. He was desirous
of entering into a conversation. He
said ho was a German, although he
talked good English. He said he was
looking for a location for a colony.
Being a man of loisurt , with plenty
of means, he was taking observations
regarding the people of Oregon. He
traveled through the country learning
the ways of the people. In some
houses hu finds people of great intelli
gence. There, he says, on tho table
will be found the Rogue Kiver Cou
rier, the Oregon ian, the Call, also
some farm papers. At other houses
he says, 'he finds light literature.
With tho last named people he could
not enter into disccssiou for the pco
plo were not posted, reading novels.
also cheap story papers. He wishes to
marry an American girl but so far as
his observation goes, ho thinks he
will go back to Minnesota or Win on
sin, as those people seem to bo men
industrious, more like tho people in
Germany. He says as soon as the
girls in the states get their kitchen
work done and Bit 'down, then they
take up their knitting, comprising
socks and mittens for the family.
Here he says the parents go to the
stores and bny all such things. Then
again he says buck iu the states he
sees grown girls working in the gar
den, as a rale the gardens nre free
trom weeds. Here, he savs, the weeds
predominate. He wants to know
what we could raise here ou a farm.
I told him we could raise anything
here that could be raised anywhere,
even to raising mortages, ou FCtnt
farms, but some farms could propagate
mortages hut could not raise them.
He said "as you hnve beeu here a
long time I would like to come np to
your ranch and see you and have a
further talk with vou. " I told him
I would like to give him more infer
illation. So perhaps next week will
