Though this is the third circus to visit Pendleton this season and though the date is late, hundreds of visitors are in the city and the af ternoon performance is fairly well attended. Had the show arrived a month earlier, however, it would have received twice the patronage, for judging by the parade it Is the big gest and best of the three. The Parade. At 10 o'clock the bugle was sound ed for the assembling of the parade and there was much hustle and bus tle but no confusion as every human cog in this vast machine knows Its place and just what to do. It was all there from the gorgeously clad feminine outriders to the wonderful band wagons ablaze with scarlet and gold and green and silver, to the ridi culous clowns In their donkey carts, fussing with the too intimate young sters, who impeded their attempts at dignified progress. The four bands were stationed at the proper distance apart to produce a continuous fanfare without Inter ference. The circus performance according to advance press reports is the best ever known in the history of the al lied shows and an estimated crowd of 3000 people are in attendance at the afternoon performance. Doors for the night show open at 7 o'clock and the performance starts promptly at 8.. CHILD POISONED BY FLY PAPER WATER Little Purdy Cornelison, the 16 months old son of Fev. and Mrs. J. M. Cornelison, came near meeting death yesterday from drinking fly poison water. The little child was at the Presbyterian mission on the reserva tion, where Mr. Cornelison is In charge. During the afternoon the parents chanced to catch the child drinking from a bowl in which a piece of fly poison paper had been soaked. Realizing the danger the parents at once administered mustard water to the child and had him vomiting with in a short time. Within an hour he was fully recovered from both the poison and treatment. However, both Mr. and Mrs. Cornelison were both made ill by the terrible experience. Why Patronize the Travel ing Eye Glass Faker?

FOREMAN REPLIES 'IX) Til 101 11 RECENT ACTION Telli the Public or some of the Diffi'- ciillics of the tin Fighters Re plies to the Council for Holding Cp of the BUI of Hose Co. No. 7. Pendleton, Ore., July 16, 1909. In replying to an article published In the Fast Oregonlan last evening, In regard to the action of the city council in holding up a hose company bill is misleading and a gross insult to the firemen of West Pendleton or Hose Co. No. 7, who have the dis puted bill. We thought the bill had been gone over and settled by a pre vious meeting, when It was O. K.'d by the chief and the fire committee. This matter being taken up at a time when none of the fire laddies were present to defend their case was an injustice to the company. The fires were three, instead of Just a hen coop and an $800 residence. First we will endeavor to explain by giving to the public some of the circumstances surrounding the diffi culties which the fire laddies encoun tered in these three fires and let you Judge whether or not the bill is a questionable one. We will admit we have an enviable record for fast work, that being dem onstrated in the last fireman's con test, when we carried off first prize. But the honorable council must not expect them to maintain their same high standard of excellence under all circumstances and conditions. The territory of Hose Co. No. 7 compris es all the property lying west of the O. R. & N. R. R. track, with only four fire plugs, all on Webb street, placed from two to four blocks apart, and one thousand feet of old hose (weigh ing about tw'o pounds to the foot) to do the rest. In order to reach these three fires it was necessary to run to the farth est plug, which Is six blocks from the hose house, 1560 feet, or nearly one third of a mile, run off 1000 feet of hose, and find we had Just barely enough hose to reach the fire, under the high pressure (by the way, we have the highest pressure In the pity). We found that we had a burst ed section near the plug (this case singularly happened In all three of these cases). We were simply handi capped except to save favored adjoin ing property and watch the property go up In smoke. One of the fires be ing on top of the south hill, the boys found themselves carrying the hose up the steep hill across lots through the barb wire fences and on reach ing the fire to find the same old story barely enough hose, a busted si c- Vacation Days Get outfitted right for your outing trip.

Now If the honorable council does not think the fire laddies did their duty, and did not earn their money, we would Invite them to follow their footsteps, take the 1000 feet of hose off the hill, uncouple, drain and put It back In the hose house on a dark night In a part of the city where there are no lights. We will wager the time turned In would be greater than the one now In dispute. And as to the loss of the ($800) humble cottage, means no less to the owner than the loss by fire of the ten thousand dollar residence of the hon orable mayor or honorable council. In explanation of how three flrei could possibly occur In three months, with all members present (which it such a hugaboo in the eyes of the council) will say these three question able fires were pulled off between the hours of 5 and 7 o'clock in the eve ning, at a time when all or most all of the boys were home to supper or for the evening. We never claimed a full attendance. Cnder the existing circumstances It was necessary to hire subsumes until the fire boys could all arrive (for which we paid for out of our terasury) and put In full time for the boys whose places they filled But their time has al ready been turned down by the coun cil and deducted from the bill. The bill was O. K.'d by the chief and by the fife committee, but if thd honorable council finds and will dem onstrate to us that the city is too poor to pay this honest bill, we will be generous enough to donate the entire amount to the city. We will gladly assist the council In making their Investigation and will go over the ground thoroughly with them (If they will only give us a chance to do so). We honestly believe when the hon orable mayor and city council fin ish their investigations they will turn nn a little extra speed on their automobiles and hurry to the council chamber, call an extra session, "get busy," and all even down to the mayor, sign the bill.
