They.: Say an Army Of

Portland and Her KM Council-The
Late Flood and Its (I real j
..... ' . ; Htlfcrht. .'.:''.,;..,
Portland, Sept. 11th. The autumn
eson has been ushered In with a
series of court martials of officer of
the army and militia that are of much
Interest Capt. W. C. Goodwin, of th
14th infantry, I now on trial at Van
couver for drunkenness while on duty.
II I charged with being too Intoxi
cated while on duly at Spokane dur
ing the strike to attend properly to
hi company, and with appearing on
parade at Vancouver o Intoxicated a
to (tagger In the rank. Th evidence
already given show great preponder
ance tn favor of th defendant, and
It I probable that th court will ac
quit blm. The truth of the matter
seem to be that Captain Goodwin i
a drinking man, a are too many of
the army officer, and sometime take
too much of the red-eye. So do other
otfleers. On the occasions In question
there I little doubt that he had been
drinking, but the evidence shows that
ha performed all hi duties correctly
and therefor wa not "drunk" ac
cording to the army definition. One
at ll familiar with the military
know that an old officer would have
to be very drunk Indeed to Incapaci
tate him from taking hi company
through dress parade, a ceremony he
could almost perform in hi sleep. On
could do tha. and yet be so drunk a
to be Incapacitated for' command In
an emergency requiring discretion and
prompt action. However, since Cap
tain Goodwin wa ober enough to
perform hi dutle and since getting
drunk when not on duty la not pro
hibited either by the army regulation
or custom, and alnce the army defini
tion of "drunk" I very elastic, it la
more than probable that the defendant
will be acquitted. Special Interest la
felt In thl trial here because Captain
Goodwin I the father of Me. Geo.
B. Markle. Following thl trial will
be that of Major Whan, of the pay
department He Is charged with con
duct unbecoming an officer and a gen
tleman In noi paying hi debt. Some
year ago he Invested In an enterprise
In Arltona and lost It all, and ever
lino his creditors have sought to
reach him by pressure upon hi su
periors In the army. He stand In the
position of any man who ha become
Involved beyond his ability to pay.
Unle It can be ahown that there
la ability on ht part to pay and a
disposition not to do so It Is very
doubtful If th court martial wilt con
vict htm. The other court martial of
Interest Is In the national guard. Col.
& L. Lovell, formerly In command of
the 2d regiment, at Salem, 1 charged
with diverting state fund Intrusted to
htm for transmission to the various
companies of hla regiment, to his own
use. HI delinquency was discovered
two year ago and more than a year
ago Colonel Lovell wa relieved of
command and the regiment has been
without a colonel ever since.
Evidence of the fact that the recent
flood waa by tar the highest that has
occurred In more than a century has
been related to me by an observing
and Intelligent gentleman who has
been spending Rome time near the cas
cade. He any that trees on a flat
wera killed by the water overflowing
their roots. These were fir trees
shown by examination to be 125 years
old. It is well known that If water
stands about the base of a. fir tree a
few hour the tree will die. This
proves )hat these trees have pever
been under water before, and a they
were 125 years old and stood so that
they could not have escaped had the
water risen, even several feet less than
It did this year, It Is ample proof that
this was the highest flood the Columbia
has known for over a century. Those
who think that such a flood la likely
to happen any year should study this
evidence of the forests along the bank
of tho Columbia. So also should those
who draw long bows about the Inun
dation half a century ago.
Portland Is now blessed with a city
council a little farther beluw par than
any of Its predecessors, Because of
the general youthfulness of its mem
bers It waa promptly christened the
"kid council," but It Is doubtful It it
doe not earn a name even less re
spectful than that, A majority fac
tion has combined to run it In. their
personal interests, arid bpcome a
"olid six." Their latest exploit wa
to pas an ordinance permitting sa
loon to keep open all night, tn spite
of popular sentiment against such a
privilege. The mayor Is expected to
veto the measure, and It ho docs the
"solid six" will have to rustle up
another vote to pass It over the veto.
If he does not veto It there will be
much Indignation, Four of the six
are republicans, one a democrat and
one Independent, The republican are
ashamed of their members belonging
to the "six." Indeed they have never
been proud- of them since the day
they secured their nomination and
many voted for Independents on elec
tion day. But the Independent candi
dates were not as a rule amy better
than the regular nominees, and tho
only one elected is a member of the
"uolld six." It was the poorest lot of
candidates, from three to five In each
ward, that wa ever offered to a suffer
ing publlo from which to make a
choice. P, P. B.
