By a margin of 11 minutes the T.
M. C. A. team won over the Chemawa
Indian team In the annual 8alem-to-Fortland
relay race Saturday. In the
absence of Governor West from the
city, Ben W. Olcott, secretary of
state, acted as starter. The race was
gotten off at 10:08, going west on
State to Commercial street and then
north to Hood, then east to Fair
grounds road and on to Chemawa.
Large crowds lined the streets along
the course, while about 1500 people
were on hand to witness the start.
The first lap was won by Kietas Jim
of the Chernawas, winning by 7V4
seconds over his pale-faced opponent,
notwithstanding that he lost one shoe
at a point about one-half mile north
of the city limits. He showed good
grit by running with only one shoe.
In the second lap McDonald, of the
Y's, passed Ell Gangra about one
mile before coming to the end of the
lap. Payton gained steadily on his
dark-colored competitor, winning out
by several seconds.. For the balance
of the course the white men were In
the lead and gaining until at the
close of the race there was a differ
ence of about two miles In favor of
the Y. M. C. A. team, the difference
In time being 11 minutes. The Y
team made the distance In 5 hours
and 14 minutes and the Chernawas In
G hours and 25 minutes, thus break
ing all previous records in this
event.' The records of former years

William Dale, the fourth lap runner
for Chemawa, collapsed on account
of sickness and thus the Indians lost
about five minutes time. He soon
regained his strength and resumed
his way, running about two miles af
ter his collapse. An automobile had
gone forward to bring back Paul Fin-
ley, who ran the remainder of that
lap, as well as his own.
It looked tor a time as though the
race would be contested because
Barndollar dropped the message,
which was picked up by a bicycle rid
er and taken forward to him, but
Superintendent Chalcraft, of the In
dian Training School, said that he be
lieved It was purely accidental and
fair, thus showing true sportsman
ship. The race had hardly closed before
Supt. Chalcraft and A. M. Grllley,
athletic director of the Portland Y.
M. C. A., had arranged another race
for next year between teams from
the same associations.

An Idea of the character of the Im
provement under way in Salem may
be had by walking along Front street,
from Ferry north to D street This
street is being paved with concrete,
the contract having been given to the
Bl-Concrete Paving & Cement com.
pany, of which L. O. Harrold Is the
manager. Work was begun on this
pavement late last fall, the delay of
several months being caused by ad
justments of matters In which the
Welch lines and the Oregon Electric
wer ethe principals. The question of
turnouts and crossovers, and the ques
tlon of common user clauses in the
franchise being the bone of conten
tion. These matters were finally, all
adjusted, and work was started by
the contracting firm. A new barrier
has now arisen which will mean delay
on the paving of this street. While It
will cause some delay to the perma
nent improvement of the street, most
of those affected are willing to suffer
the Inconvenience a while longer, In
order that a good street may be se
cured. As intimated, some delay will
be further occasioned on account of
the viaduct being constructed by the
Salem Flouring Mills company from
the east line of front street at Di
vision street to the property line on
the west line of Front street at D
street, a distance of about 500 feet.
The viaduct will be 5 feet high by 20
feet wide, and Is made entirely of
concrete, with reinforced steel top,
being about two feet below the grade
of the street. This Improvement will
cost about $30,000, the work being
done under the supervision of E. I.
Cantlne. The pavement Is to cost
about $37,000, while the Welch people
and the Oregon Electric have spent
several thousand dollars more, mak
ing the cost of the entire Improvement
almost $75,000. There are several oth
er important improvements along this
street, among which Is a fine ware
house, built recently by the Oregon
Electric railway ot the corner of
Chemeketa and Front streets, costing
several thousand dollars.
Mr. Harrold resumed work on the
paving todny and Intends rushing It to
completion at as early a date as pos

HISTORY OF THE
OF OREGON CITY
The most complete and authentic
history of the Archdiocese of Oregon
City, yet published, Is contained In
the eleventh volume ot the new Cath
olic encyclopedia. The early striv
ings of Catholic settlers for recogni
tion In western Oregon are graphi
cally recounted and the rise ot the
diocese from Its humble beginnings to
lta present day Important position In
the community Is treated at length.
The general scope and Influence of
the ecclesiastical, educational and
charitable work of the diocese Is tell
ingly reviewed. Interesting statistics
hitherto unpublished have been com
piled by the author, Edwin V. O'Hara,
of Portland. Much new information
Is contained in the following excerpts
taken from its pages:
"The Archdiocese of Oregon City
includes that part ot the state of Or
egon west ot the Cascade mountains,
being bounded on the east by the
counties of Wasco, Crook and Klam
ath. It comprises an area of 21,398
square miles. By an Indult of the
Holy See dated February 28, 1836, the
Oregon county north of the American
line was annexed to the vicariate
Apostolic of Manager Provencher of
Red River. By letters of April 17,
1848, Rev. F. N. Blanchet was ap
pointed vicar-general to the Arch
bishop of Quebec and assigned to the
Oregon mission. The vicar-general
established his first mission at St.
Paul on the Willamette, and on Jan
uary 0, 1839, dedicated at that place
the flrBt Catholic church In Oregon.
The church had been constructed
three years earlier by the Canadian
settlers who had anticipated the com
ing of a missionary among them.
"As the line of demarcation be
tween British and American territory
was still undecided, and missionary
priests had been sent Into the coun
try both from Canada and from the
United States (De Smet had come
from St. Louis), Oregon, became a
Joint mission depending upon the
Bishops of Quebec and Baltimore. At
the suggestion of these bishops, the
mission was erected Into a vicariate
Apostolic by a brief of December 1,
1843. On July 24, 184G, the vicariate
was transformed Into a province com
prising the Archdiocese of Oregon
City and the Dioceses of Walla Wal
la and Vancouver's Island. With the
transfer of the See of Walla Walla
to Nesqually (1848), the northern
boundary of the Archdiocese of Ore
gon City was fixed at the Columbia
River and the 46th degree latitude.
This territory was diminished by the
erection of the Vicariate of Idaho
(18G8) and finally received Its pres
ent limits by the erection of the Dio
cese of Baker City (1903).
Bishops: (1) Francois Norberl
Blanchet was born September 3, 1795,
and consecrated July 25, 1845. There
were In the diocese in 1845, 10
priests, 13 Slstors of Notre Dame,
and two educational Institutions. The
firnt priest ordained In Oregon was
Father Jayol, the ceromony being
performed by Archbishop Blanchet at
St. Paul, September 19, 1847. On
November 30, the nrchblshop conse
crated nt St. Paul, Bishop Demers, of
Vancouver's Island. He convened the
First Provincial Council of Oregon
City, February 28, 1848. On Decem
ber 21, Archbishop Blunchet left St.
Paul and took up Jils resldonre at
Oregon City. In 1852 the first church
In the city of Portland was dedicated
under the title of the Immaculate
Conception. It beranio the pro-cathedral
when Archbishop Blanchet
moved to Portland In 18G2.
(2) Charles John Seghcrs was
born December 2C, 1839, at Client,
successor to the pioneer Bishop De
mers of Vancouver Island, and was
transferred to Oregon City, Decem
ber 10, 1878, und became coadjutor to
Archbishop Blanchet who at once re
tired from active life. Archbishop
SegherB Is remembered for his heroic
devotion to the Indian missions of
Alaska which led him to resign the
See of Oregon City In 1884.
"(3) William II. Cross (consecrat-
cu lllsnop or savvnnnah, 1873) was
promoted to the archleplscopal See ot
Oregon City, February 1, 1885, and
Invested with the pallium In Port
land by Ills Eminence Cardinal Gib
bons, October 9. On bis deuth No
vember 14, 1898, he was succeeded by
tli o present archbishop. (4) Most
Uev. Aloxander Chrlstlo (consecrated
Bishop of Vancouver's Island, June
29, 1898) was promoted to the
archleplscopal See of Oregon City
February 12, 1899. Statistics for

tee, the city superintendent and the
school clerk were directed to draw
up contracts for the teachers to sign,
which must be done within 10 days.

kidney trouble by the aid of Foley
Kidney Pills, and writes: "I have
taken Foley Kidney Pills and they
have given me a great deal of relief,
so I cheerfully recommend them."
