missed his footing in some manner and
fell a distance of fourteen feet.. In the
fall he struck on his side on some ob
struction which undoubtedly broke the
force of the fall, otherwise he might
have broken his neck, as he struck his
head, cutting agash that needed several
stitches to close. He fell in the water
and remained there some time before he
regained consciousness. He is out again
attending to his duties, but is still pret

Last winter, through the efforts of
the Women's club, the French band
J came to the city and in order tof raise
the guarantee demanded by Eilison-
White, a number of business men paid
10 for the privilege of buying four
seats at the armory.
It' also happened that the band did
not arrive in the city until about 10
o'clock that evening ,and there was a
suspicion that the musicians did not
know they were to play here and were
not in very good humor when they did
arrive. Anyhow, the regular program
was ditched and after one number of
real music, the evening was given to
playing about the easiest numbers a real
French band could play.

NAVAL MILITIA YET
'All SAYS OPl'il
Attorney General Ho!ds Re
peal Does Not Effecct
' Several opinions have been issued re
cently from the office oi the attorney
general. One of these is in reply to $ j
query from Adjutant General Conrad
Stafrin regarding the status of the
Oregon naval militia. It is shown in.
th'j opinion that while all federal sta
utes regarding the militia have been
repealed the naval militia was not
included. Hence the state is in position
to authorize the establishment and
maintenance of the naval militia if it
Sees fit to do so; ; .'
Replying to a question Atom the cor
poration department with regard to
the issuance of preferred stock by an
organized corporation,- the attorney
shows that after a corporation has been
organized, and stock issued and sold,
it cannot by supplementary articles Is
sue preferred stock except on the unan
imous action , of the stockholders.
Replying to a query as to the licens
ing of architects under the new law,
the attorney calls attention to tho
clause" which", requires all professional
architects to' apply. for a license with
in 60 days from the date when the law
ibecame effective. All are required to
pass an examination as to qualifica
tions except those who have been in
the practice of their profession for at
least one year. By practice is meant
actual work that gives applicant first
hand knowledge and skill needed for
scientific construction. ' - " , T
Replying to tt query from Supcrin
tendent Bennett, of the banking de
partment, as to whether a national
bank should be classed as a "foreign
corporation" under the trust company
laws of Oregon, the attorney states,
that while a national bank is foreign
in -the sense that it is authorized by
the" federal government, it is not so
construed because its incorporators are
residents of the state where the bank
is operated. Hence its standing before
the statute is the same as that of the

Timber company's logging camps that a;
forest fire had started in the slashings
and in a very few moments was beyond
control of tho large force of men work

ports came that the wall of flame was

thing in their path-aiid excitement ran '
high in town. Eage'rty news was sought i
from tile seat of. tr(jjbu 'and. wjld; rn-
mors were licked up, without, a question'
of their . authenticity. Estimated lossw
were.. placed around the half-million (
The accepted news of tho. starting of i
the fire is that the man blowing chock- j

trol. Simultaneously' with the explosion
two fires in difforont locations about a
quarter of a mile away sprang up. . Men
fought the flames heroically as best
they could but their efforts were more
or less f utilevdming the heat of tho day,
but when the wind died down they did
splendid work in protecting tho out
skirts. - -
Cnnip 2, the largest company camp,
was wiped out in a short time aftor the
fire had started. Camp 1 had prac
tically been abandoned, only three old
shacks being caught in the sweep of the
f iro. Camp 4, consisting of only old
shacks, but occupied by workmen, was
burned. Camp 3 had no buildings other
than a cook house; the cook house burn
ed. Camp 8, a largo camp, wns saved.
The donkoy engines scattered hero
and there through the woods are not so
badly damaged as was at first supposed.
They can all bo repaired on the ground.
The logging equipment was generally
Tho homes of loggers Wood, Shancr,
Hagadoro, Brogig, Route and Rupc and
Timekeeper Fcaley located one-fourth
of a mile from Camp 2 were saved f "m
the fire. . The families have come H Ril
