The Cost of Sanitation
Conflicting reports have gone
out from tin- Isthmus of Panama,
ri'KarilhiK the cost o sanitation.
Some have claimed that sanita
tion lias been very expensive :
that when the work shall have
heen finished, sanitation will have
tost 5 per rent of the total ex
pense. This comes, says Col.
Win. Gorans, the chief Sanitary
Officer of the Istlmian Canal
Conimissio'ii, from confusing the
expense of the sanitary depart
ment with those of sanitation. The
sanitary department spends a
ood deal of money that has no
lelation whatever to sanitation;
for instance, more than half the
revenues of the sanitary depart
ment are on hospitals, dis
pensaries, etc., things that have
no relation w hatever to sanitation.
It is just as misleading to call
such things on the Isthmus "san
itation" as it would he to charge
to the health department of our
!at;e cities the expenses of all
Hospitals ami dispensaries and the
incomes id' the physicians .Tad
muse's. As a matter of fact, the
sanitation of the Isthmus has cost
ahotit $HX.lXK per annum. This
is a luile more than one cent per
il.iy per capita lor the total pop
ulation, and when we ate through
we shall have spent on sanitati'mi
iilmnt $4,lXX),CXXt instead of $.'(!.
(O).(KX). as has l.een stated, or 1.03
per cent of the total cost of the
canal instead of five per cent.
The matter lias a far wider ap
plication than to our local affairs
on the Isthmus. If our work is
going to ho of assistance to other
tiopical countries, we must show the expeusrs uf sanitation are
w ithin tho limits of (heir financial
ahilit v. 1 1 the South American
government are told that it has
cost the American government
520,000,000 for the sanitation of j
this small territory of 500 square i
miles on the Isthmus for ten years
they would all see at once that a
similar work for themselves
would be entirely beyond their
financial ability. I!ut if they are
informed that it has cost the
Americans a little more than a
cent a day pe rcapita for the
work, they will know that they
are financially able to do the same.
I his can certainly be done by all
these countries, as far as their

The following is reprinted from the
last issue of Dun's Review and indi
cates the business interests are not
particularly worried over the tariff
"General trade is quiet for the time
being, many railroads and industrial
centers not having as yet fully recov
ered from the ettects of the western
floods; Satisfactory progress, how
ever, is reported at many points. The
readjustment of the tariff, now in pro
gress, produces more or less hesita
tion in some trades, but in spite of
these two unfavorable factors, there
is no indication of n nermanent set
back in business, and fundamental con
ditions appear as sound as before.
An encouraging development of the
week was the very favorable renort
on the condtion of winter wheat, which
is far above the average. Bank clear
ings this week were 5.0 per cent, under
those of last vear. but 3.7 ner cent
above 1911. The prevailing dullness
in tne speculative markets no doubt
accounts in part for the decrease.
Railroad gross earnings in March were
5.5 per cent, better than last year, and
the gain would have been larger, but
for the interruption to traffic caused
by the floods. The idle car surplus
has increased 20.000 in two weeks.
Pig iron output during March showed
a falling off from February, while the
Steel Corporation's unfilled orders
at th end of March were 187.758 tons
less than at the close of Fehruarv.
The conper situation has improved
materially and a further advance in
prices is expected. Better weather
favors building operations. The drv
goods markets arc experiencing a
steady, though quiet, trade. The shoe
industry rctlects progressive move
ment, with an excellent outlook for
the coming season. Lumber shows
steady improvement. Foreign com
merce maintains its imposing dimen
sions, statistics for the latest week
at New York showing a total trade in
and out of ?.1K.1K0.41.1 against $36 227
770 last year and $34,488,872 in 101 1.
Exports increased $3,546,212 over 1012,
while ininorts decreased $1,548,569 "
"Liabilities of commercial failures
reported for April to date amount to
$5,133,825. of which $1,640,790 were In
manufacturing, $3,215,125 in trading
and $277,010 in other commercial
lines. Failures this week numbered
279 in the United Slates against 207
last year, and 28 in Canada compared
with 22 a year ago."

Harry Wilkins Secures Collec
tion of Photographs of Teams
of Early Days.
Our Forefathers Could Play
Ball As Well As We of
Harry Wilkins, the well known
clerk and photographer of Dawson's
drug store, has succeeded in securing
a very interesting collection of old
time pictures of ' leading baseball
teams of this city of the early days.
The pictures are owned by differ
ent people of the city who have kindly
loaned them to' Mr. Wilkins. who is
ever alert to things of the hour, as
attested by the window exhibits that
have appeared from time to time at
this popular drug store. Hence Mr.
Wilkins has arranged an interesting
exhibit of these baseball pictures in
one of the windows of the store which
has attracted much attention.
Among the pho'tographs are two
championship teams representing this
city. One team captured the state
championship in 1878. The line-up
of this team is as follows: George
Sill lb.. Ed Clarke, c., .Tim Fosterss.,
Dick Conn. If.. Phil Baltimore, c.
Cash Hawkins, 2b., H. M. Crane, mgr.,
Rev. Stevens, cf., Mack Monteith, 3b.,
Frank McCully, p.
Another picture is of the old Al
bany Colts who toolc the Northwest
championship of Oregon, California
and Nevada. 17 years ago. The per
sonel of this aggregation is as fol
lows: F.lton Connaway. 3b., Rialto
Weathcrford. lb., Flemmings, p., Har
ry Crawford, cf., Frank Layton, ss.,
Billy Mack, mgr.. Will Mullcr, c,
Harry Clisick. sub.. Lair Thompson,
If.. Fred Wcatherford, rf.. Ed McFar
land, 2b., Arch Coins, sub.
A game that was of considerable
interest and one that will probably be
recalled by many of the oldtimers of
this city, was a contest played at
Lyons, between an aggregation of that
city and an Albany team, June 4. 1892,
which resulted in a score of 19 to9 in
favor of Albany. Mcmbei's of the Al
bany team are as follows: C. B.
Winn, Fd Blodgett, Billic Campbell.
Pearl Casey, Oscar Marshall. Jack
Warner, mgr. Art Lamert, S. Farrcll,
Wm. Stites. McFarland. Farlow. Alex.
Rennie, Jno. Hoffman, Bert Majors.
Other pictures represent the K. O.
T. ,M. team of 1906, the Albany Col
lege aggregation of the same year,
who captured the state championship
and the Albany High School of 1908.

News Bcginninc With This Head Is
Krrn Daily Issue of
Plan Now on Foot Is Meeting
with General Favor by the
Local Business Men.
Would Cost 50 Cents a Month
For Twenty-Five Foot Front
age to Maintain.
If the business men of Albany will
co-operate with the city authorities,
a uniform system of street lighting
which will include cluster lights for
First, Second and Lyon streets will
become a reality in the near future.
Business men were interviewed in
regard to the proposition this morning
and those spoken to in regard to
the matter were enthusiastic.
The city proposes to place -cluster
light posts at the comers of First,
Second and Lyon Streets and main
tain them out of the city funds. Lo
cal business men are now being asked
to install and maintain two posts be
tween the corners on each side of
the street, the estimated cost of main
tainence. being approximately fifty
cents for every twenty five feet of
business frontage. .
The plan appears to be the only
solution of the problem of the street
lighting in Albany and is
meeting with much favor among the
progressive and public spirited mer
chants who have taken the lead in 'a
campaign for a better lighted city.

In a seven inning practice game the
candidates for Hulen's Regina, West

Coach Garrett's Oregon aggies by a
score of 6 to 3 yesterday afternoon at
Hulen's men made a much better
showing in this contest than they did
in Tuesday's game when they defeat
ed the O. A. C, by a score of 7 to 6.
There is only one error marked
against the Reginas while the aggies
are charged with 6. However, the
collegians put up a better game of ball
than they have thus far this season.
The special feature of the game
was the batting of both sides. Re

best pitchers and the collegians made
five hits.
The Canadians made two runs each
in the fourth, fifth, and sixth innings.

During Summer; Has Com

I'ciple of this city should not bev
surprised if Ihcy hear that H;my
1 ish. the .7 etar old sen of Mr and
Mrs. L. II. Fish, of West Fifth. street,
has become famous, for Henry is a
genius in the art of.fli.. i.:achine
cotisrr I'-'tion snd has iu-t .. Ictcd
a genuine coaster aeroplane.
The machine is an exact duplicate
of an ordinary bi-plane to the min
utest detail, except that it is not
quite as large as the standard ma
chine. The planes are three feet wide
and are 18 feet 'n length and between
the p'anes at each end are two smaller
planes which are called balancing
w nigs The machine lias a reguiar
l-iil and rudder and in fail every de
tail is similar to those of a success
ful areoplane, save that it is built upon
a smaller scale.
:p. of bcin; . e,;.l by a pro
1 Her (t-tached .. a in ' ihtj lo
.nift:on of the iiae:'ie . accom
plished by mounting a hill and when
placed in position it is released and
as it gains rapid momentum, being
mounted upon sturdy wheels, the el
evating plane is adjusted and the ma
chine is supposed to glide gently in
the air, slightly in the same fashion
as a gliding bi-planc. The driver
occupys a position between the two
planes in the center and manipulates
the glider by a lever in the same way
it is done upon the larger machines.
The workmanship on the machine
is complete to the minutest detail.
The best of material was used in the
construction of the wood work. The
wires and stays are o'f standard ma
terial. All of the wood work was
made and shaped by the deft hand of
Henry who has one of the most com
plete work shops in his back yard
and it all goes to show that he is an
artist in that particular line.
Henry has been an industrious man
ual training student at the local high
school and has been an attentive read
er of the Popular Mechanics and the
Hydro-Aero magazines, many num
bers of which he has filed in his shop
for reference.
Aside from the bi-plane now com
pleted, Henry is constructing another
machine of the monoplane type of
practically the same dimensions as
the aeroplane glider. This machine
will be similar lo the regular mono
plane and is manipulated and flown in
the same way as the former flyer.
It is the young inventor's intention
to try these machines out sometime
during the summer and it is very
probable that success will attain his
efforts, as both machines are very
substantially constructed.
