B.IRTIJI OF CHRIST: San Francisco, Feb.:5. The Presbyterian Ministers' Asso ciation is demanding'theresignation of the Rev. Dr. Aked, in consequence of a statement made by him inii the course of a recent sermon. that he does not support the doctrine of the miraculous condeption or of the supernatural birth of Christ. "The faith of Saints John, Paul, James, and Mark," dcclared Dr. Aked, "is enough, for me; And' these mencn said nothing of Christ's coming into the world in any imiraculous way." In the opinion of the Association;: such beliefs disqualify Dr. Akled.froin hold ing oltice in the chlurch, aiid Ihis i ith drawal froni the .ulpit" is 'egarded as necessary if chursh discipline is to be ma iftained.

PORTLAND RACES. The committee of the Race Club are agnin demonstrating that they have every confidence that the. doble sport in Portland, after lying dormant for so many years, is likely to flourish bere for many years to come, Since its re vival some three years ago, successive committees have continued to improve the course and its appurtenances, and dluring tie past month or so al marked alteration in the surroundincs of the old course is particularly noticable. Some departure from older methods has been made in leasing the area en closed by the running track for agri cultural purposes, and a'most ha'f of this area is now under cultivation. Two of our townsmen, with the strongest faith in the possibilities of the heath land which has been thought to be almost useless [have shewn that faith in the most tangible manner possible by putting money into the cultivation of what has bgen during the memory of man a miserable heathy scrubby flat.

MEMORIES OF OLD-TIME RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 9 February 1914

MEMORIES OF OLD-TIME RACES. (Dr Mazeppa) At this moment, when the public mind is more or less engrossed in racing affairs, it may not be out of season to contribute a few particulars   pertaining to racing matters in the early days of Portland. Whatever may be advanced against its practice, the sturdy fact remains that it is the national sport. No town is properly constituted unless some reservation is set apart for this purpose. About the year 1847 it was decided to establish a Racing Club in Portland. To select a suitable site for a course was not a difficult matter. The one   fixed upon is now known as the Portland race course. Promptly the ground was put in order as well as existing circumstances permitted, a committee was formed, and preliminaries were soon arranged to hold the first race meeting. The first person to hold the title of secretay wats Mr. Matheson, a local storekeeper. Putting matters in a practical shape, an attractiive pro gramme was pr...
