Arthur CTffton Crookall. of the class of '9*. was last night pronounced the champion orator of the university, winning his laurels at the oratorical contest given under the auspices of the King County Bar Association at the First Presbyterian church. Miss Audrey Blanche Souder was awarded the second prixe. The committee waa asked to confer an honorable mention upon the third in excellence, but refused to do so. not desiring to make any distinction between the other speakers, all being of suc+i merit. The decision was received with approbation by an audience of nearly l.» 0 person*. Mr. «'rookall s subject was "War and the Martial Spirit," being a review of the proKT»ns of the spirit of arbitration among nations. This Mr. Crookall h-<n<lie#i with extraordinary good Judgment and power. and his? sucess. in view of the rejeetion of the greatest arbitration treaty in history by the Cnlted States senate, was the mor> remarkable. Miss Souder ch»«e for her theme "Tjie American Woman." and right faithfully did she portray the noble characteristics of the woman of today—not the "new woman" in the vulgar sense, which implies bloomers and a bicycle swagger, but rather picturing the woman as a breadwinner, persevering, ambitious and aspiring. Mr. t.'rookall endeavored to show that war is a breaking of the laws of nature, asserting that peaceful nations acquire the strength and power that make them su|*?rior to warlike, quarrelsome nations. Said he: "The peaceful progress of civilize.lion has been one of the chief factors of every victory our nation has won. Let other nations double their navies and swell their armies; we will multiply our students and increase and develop our inventive genius. Let them raise Bismarcks and Napoleons from their educated military; we -Mill graduate Edisons and Lincolns from our farms and shops. "Physical strife has had its place in the past evolution of the world, hut the time has come when the very development of man's genius in the production of instruments of attack and <b fense has madewar a senseless barbarity. In the future the contest will lie between roind andirind; battles must give way to contests of logic tmd reason, and the wisd m of arbitration will take tho place of ths skil! of generals." The speaker referred to as being infested with the reptiles of war - Look at the huge standing armies which depress her energies and eat at her vitals! Think of the number of strong and vigorous men which the trans-Atlantic governments support in Idleness. The annual military expenditure*; of European nations amount to a tax of $6 per capita. To preserve peace theV Kurope of today has chained h«rself to a tiger." William D. Howie followed Mr. Crookall. his theme being "The Saracen and the Turk." The speaker reviewed the history of these races, tracing the development of the Mohammedan religion, which to the Turk meant a means of gratifying his lowest passions. Forcibly he told of the horrors of Armenia, panting under the n-.f nstrius tyranny of the despicable Turk, and called on the civilised nations of the earth to blot the empire of Islainism from the map. Miss Souder'r tribute to the woman of todav wa.H cou« h"d in striking imagery and lilted with historb- lilurtrations. Mr. Tho ma? F Murphtn v s subject was "War and Arbitration," which he handled with feeling and power. Mis« Wood closed the programme with "A Plea for Mercy." In which she delivered an imaginary speech tn defense of a convicted criminal whose poverty and the sufferings of his family drove htm to steal food. While the Judges, Ex-Senator Allen. Judge Jacobs and Judge W. H. White, were making the award. John Wiley entertained the audlepee by reciting "Will H. Thompson's martial poem. "High Tide at (Settysburg " Musical numbers were contributed by Miss Kellogg. Mr. Pensmore and the Rrooklyn mate quartette. TO HE HELD TOVIBVt.

RECEIVER SMITH WON JIDGE HA*FORD GRA*TS ORDKH FOR IMPROVEMENT OF C. dt P. S. Two New aad Heavy Eaglaes to Be Ordered Prom the East—-Cost aad Freight Cars Will Be Bailt la Seattle. and the Roadbed Will Be Pat la Shape for the Staadardlilag. Whleh Will Be Completed November I—The Amy Committee Objects to the Purchase of a New Steamer. Whleh Has *ot Yet Been Asked for by the Receiver—Rail* road Motes. By November 1 It Is expected that trains will be running over the Columbia & Puget Sound Railroad, made Into a standard gauge road. Receiver Smith, of the Oregon Improvement Company, will at once perfect arrangements by which equipment will be procured for the road in its new form, having secured an order from Judge Hanford yesterday authorizing the improvement. Two new engines of great power will be ordered, and the necessary freight tnd coal cars will he manufactured here by the company. The roadbed will, in the meantime, be put In shape for the change, bridge? will be rebuilt and strengthened, and in other ways preparations will be made for the Improvement. Bids will be asked for the material nee'■" iry for the construction of the rolling stock. The legal steps that make possible this important improvement to the property of the Oregon Improvement Company were taken yesterday morning In the Federal court. Judge C. 11. Hanford presiding. As has l>een fully detailed in the Post-Intelllgencer, a minority of the m~ curity holders, represented by the Amy committee, had protected against the improvement. and through W. W. Cotton, of Portland, had filed a vigorous protest with the Farmers' Loan & Trust Company, the trustees under the mortgage which Is now In process of foreclosure. Through Mr. Cotton, the Amy committer asked the court for leave to file objections and a chance to be heard In the matter. This day in court was accorded the committee yesterday, and Mr. Cotton wan given every opportunity to present the ease from his standpoint. Andrew F. Burleigh. representing' the Waterbury committee, which holds a majority of the securities, replied to Mr. Cotton in behalf of the reorganization plans as outlined by Mr. Waterbury and his associates 8 H. Piles* presented the case for Receiver Smith, supporting the petition for authority to make the expenditure. In support of the objections rnlsed by the Amy committee, a number of documents were filed. First among these was a formal objection to granting th" order, made by Henry Amy and Henry H. We- Harg. comprising what Is known as th*» Amy committee. The document sets up that the intervenors represent security holders of ttie Oregon Improvement Company and for themselves and for tho-«e they represent, object to the proposed expenditure by Receiver Smith. Th«y claim to represent the following securities: Two hundred and fortv-one thoustttfl dollar? par value first mortgage bonds; twenty-three certificates of the Manhattan Trust Co., each representing one first mortgage bind for >1 of the consolidated mortgage bonds and 379 eertlftcates of the Manhattan Trust <*ompinr ev-h representing a first mortgage bond. s!.Wrt par value Further, the complaint says: "Inter' enors deny that for any time prior to the appointment at a receiver herein, the Oregon Improvement Company was operating or controlling the Columbia & Puget Sound railroad or any part thereof, and deny that the receiver w:is by any order of the couft directed to take possession or operate the said railroad." It is alleged further that the railroad company controls its own property and operates it Independently of the Improvement company atid is a solvent corporation. It is declared that no showing has been made as to the necessity for the expenditure of in standardizing the road an<l for the issuance of receiver's certiftcitc« for this amount In payment thereof. Finally, It i* asserted that the proposed expenditure and i««ue of receiver's eertiftwhich shall constitute a lien upon the property of th« company. Is improper and contrary to law. Mr Cotton supported this document in *n extended argument. H» laid str»>s* upon th« alieeatlon that ine rfrosron Improvement Company ana the railroad ompany were two distinct corporation* and that the receiver had no authority em- ring htm to cor.trol and operate the railroad. To thl* al objection Mr. FurlHgh replied at length, and he also explained th»» reorganfz ition plans of the Waterbury committee Those mike provision for the standardizing and equipment of the rr ad He pointed out the advisability of making the improvement at thl* time, showing that with the present equipment and roadbed large expenditure would have to h* made of necessity were of a temporary nature After Mr Cot tor! had replied to Mr Rur!♦ !fc*h. the court rendered oral opinion. ?'atl'-.c that h" won id ,«ljrn an order author- Ixins the * sper.ditur* of the money arid the i*< r.e of the receiver's eerti*^~ate«, provl led that the f r>rmti consent to the Improve- Royal Bikes tit food pare. wkokwnt ud delicto**, p°m POWDER AiMlitetyNrr •»*.

The board of directors reside in Seattle and the company is owned by the Oregon Improvement Company. The required assent will probably be secured and filed with the court today, and the order will be issued' Saturday. Receiver Smith yesterday said that the plans for the broadening and equipment of the road would be pushed to completion as rapidly as possible. The truss bridge :»t Renton is to be practically rebuilt. At other points on the line the roadbed is to be put in shape for the coming change. Among the rolling stock which will be built here will be a new compartment car. At present the company has on h;*nd passenger coaches from other roads which will be used until new ones are necessary. The actual broadening of the track will he the last task to be undertaken. Everything else pertaining to the Improvement wil! be completed and in readiness for the change when, within two days, the rails will be taken up and relafd at standard gauge. NEW O. I. CO. STEAMER. The Amy Committee Objects to Its Purchase by Receiver Smith. An unusual document was filed in the Federal court yesterday. It was a communication from the Farmers' Loan & trust Company address-d to the court, and relates to matters connected with the reorganization of the Oregon Improvement Company. The communication states that the trust company lias been served with a petition by Receiver Smith for leave to purchase a new steamer, and to authorize him to borrow money or issue receiver's certificates for the payment of the same to the amount of SSOO.OOO. Further. it Is stated that the trust companyhas consented that such a petition be submitted to the court for such action as the court may deem best, not being sufficiently advised in the matter as to either favor or oppose the petition. After the receipt of the notice of Receiver Smith's intentions, it is set tip that the trust company was served with a demand on the part of the Amy committee that it <the trust company) appear in court in behalf <»f the security holders and oppose the granting of the petition and the authorization for the issuance of the receiver's certificate*. Further, it is stated that counsel for the Amy committee request that they be permitted to be heard when the petition is presented to the court. Annexed to the document is a copy of the notice served on the trust company by the Amy committee. It Is signed by Henry Amy and H. H. McHarg. The document itself is signed Turner. Mc- Clurc & Rolston, of New York. attorneys for the Farmers' Loan & Trust Company. It is evident from the paper that the plans of the reorganization committee include other improvements aside from tne standardizing <>t the Columbia & Puget Sound Railroad. Such a petition by Receiver Smith as is mentioned has never yet appeared in the court files, and until it Is presented to the court It is plain that no action can be taken in the matter. If the purchase of a new steamer Is contemplated, nothing has so far been said about it. and her destination cannot therefore be foretold. THE SPOKANE RATE CASE.

The closing chapter In the lonir fight which the merchants of Spokane have be»m waging against the Great Northern for lower rates in competition with Pacific coast terminal points will be reached in the Federal court tomorrow, when Ju>lge Hanford will hear the report of Special M ister in Chancery Lorenzo S. B. Sawyer, to whom the c.ise was referred for the purpose of taking testimony and receiving proofs of the matters in controversy. Mr. Sawyer's findings were against the Spokane merchants, and it vm? held that the company had not violated the orders of the Interstate commerce commission. It was shown that Spokane's geographical position and the close water competition to Coast terminals was responsible for the grievances of which the merchants complain*!.

A halo of romance has clung for some generation* around the name of Gypsies, largely due to the first masten* of English fiction, who generally to introduce a Gypsy as one of the more or less prominent characters, generally exerting mach influence to bring about the final catastrophe. In more modern timt*s the "Larengro" of Barrow and the various writings of Charles Q. Inland. ha\e deepened the interest while broadening the knowledge of the reading public a boa.. this most interesting race, which has for hundreds of years preserved the mystery of its origin, and pursued its nomadic habits, isolated among the nations of the world. It is of the Engiish Gypsy, the Romany, that most of novelists 3nd students treat, and the English Gypsies were the firni that ever came to this country, the only ones, in fact, seen here until within a very recent period. The people living in the vicinity of Green lake are not at present, however, inclined to look with much interest upon the romantic side of the Gypsies. They are having some practical experience with a visitation frctn a large number ;>f the race, and are appealing to the authorities for re* lief a«d protection. In the latter part of last week a caravan of Gypsies* suddenly made its appearance at the north end of Green lake, where they established a temporary camp. There were seven covered wagons each containing a full load, so that the number in the camp in estimated at some forty odd. These Gypsies were not the Romany of English story, but their brethren from continental Europe; probably the Txigani of the Slavonic countries, for they are swarthier in hue and more uncouth in garb and manner than their English cousins, while few of them have more than a limited command of English. Accompanying eaon wagon is a t.une dancing bear, a few monkeys and other animals of like character, and there is the usual swarm of children. These Gypsies are coolly laying the whole neighborhood under to supply their wants. The houses art- isolated. which makes it particularly easy for the truculent vagabonds to carry on their game. They go to the nouse*. km* k on the doors with sticks, and on the appearance of the inmates demand food in 'he most insolent manner, and it is generally given without demur by the terrified women, should the Heads of the family be absent. Hen roosts ate also laid under contribution to an alarming extent, and poultry raising will have to be abandoned in that section if they remain long. On their first appearance. Policeman Hadeen. who has the Fremcnt beat, was notified. lie visited the camp and ordered them to leave. They did so, «nd were at last accounts camped at the old Radloflt place, outside of the city limits, and conluently beyond the jurisdiction of the city authorities. From their present camp foraging parties go out daily, to the annoyance. and, in some instances to the terror of families living In the neighborhood. What is to be done with them is somewhat of a problem. In the absence of #pe» cific charges of lawbreaklng. »;nd the evidence to support those charges, there is no pretext on which the county authorities can Interfere: so the intolerable nuisance of their prentice will possibly continue until the spirit of unre.-»< soixes them again and they p<ws on to new pastures.
