Lato Saturday night the Portland
police force raided the Mllwaukie
Country Club and arrested seven men,
Including those in charge of the resort
and players. Nearly $1000 In money
wt-s seized as was also paraphernalia
connected with the establishment
which will be used as evidence in the
trial of the case to establish the char
acter of the resort and the business
that Is conducted there.
Much Indignation has been aroused
among the people or MiiwauKie at
this unusual act on the part of the
Portland authorities. The people of
Milwaukie, fully two-thirds of them,
are not opposed to the operation of
the Mllwaukie Club within the cor
porate limits of their city and they
consider It an Inexcusable interference
for any Intrusion by the Multnomah
county authorities whose Jurisdiction
Is seriously questioned. .
The raid on the Mllwaukie Country
Club by the Portland police was not a
surprise to Sheriff Shaver and the of
ficers of this county.
Last Wednesday, the day following
the adjournment of the Clackamas
county grand jury, interested Port
land gamblers came to Clackamas
county officers and offered to deposit
$1000 as a fund with which to defray
the expenses of proceeding against
the Mllwaukie Club and prosecuting
Its promoters. But the tender was re
jected for the reason that to Initiate j
such a movement against the manage
ment of the Milwauki resort would re-1
suit in a demand for similar action
against gaming as it is being carried
on at Estacada, Canby, and other
points In the county and for which
there are not available funds for pros
ecuting. "These raids and prosecutions of
the Milwaukie Club are not the vyrk
of the moral people of Portland," said
Sheriff Shaver In discussing the situ
ation. "On the contrary it is the di
rect result of a quarrel among the
gamblers themselves. Portland gamb
lers being denied the privilege of con
ducting games in that city, are leav
ing no stone unturned to suppress the
operation of the Milwaukie resort.

county will reimburse me for all ex

est Orove. The time had been left for
the officers to decide upon and notice
was received a few laya ago that
they had selected Friday and Satur
day, December 22 and 23, as the date
for the sessions. Gale Grange had
appointed a committee at its last
meeting to confer with a committee
from the Board of Trade to make ar
rangements for the proper reception
of the delegates. Messrs. W. K. New

i committee, met with the directors of
the Board of Trade Saturday after
j noon and after considering the quest
tion at so.ne length Messrs. Walter
Uogo, B. 8. Callendar and Judge Hoi
lis were appointed a committee to
represent the Board and together with
the Grange committee to make all
necessary arrangements for the meet
ing. There are usually from 60 to
100 dairymen in attendance and it
has been customary at other places to
give them a banquet or dinner during
their sessions, and It was the sense
of the conference that the Board of

STATE ASKS SHARE
SUES PORTLAND GENERAL ELEC
Claims It Is Entitled to Ten Per Cent
of the Profits on
An important suit involving a large
sum of money was filed in the State
Circuit Court yesterday by the State
of Oregon against The Portland Gen
oral Electric Company to recover 10
per cent of the tolls collected at the
locks at Oregon City since 18(3, re
ported the Oregonian last Friday. A
M. Crawford. Attorney-General, and
John Manning, District Attorney, rep
resent the state as counsel. The com
plaint contains a full recital of the
statute under which the Willamette
Falls locks were constructed in 1873,
The state of Oregon contributed $200
000 and was to receive each year 10
per cent of the net profits arising from
the tolls. It is alleged that on Decem
ber 31. 1873, the Willamette Falls Can
al & Lock Company, which built the
locks, paid to the State of Oregon
$135 as 10 per centum of the net profits
from the tolls during the year 1873,
ACCEPTS INDEPENDENT NOMINA
TION FOR MAYOR.
Appears To Be No Opposition Candi
didate Election on
B. G. Caufleld, cashiet of the Bank
of Oregon City and former Mayor, on
Monday morning announced that he
would accept the nomination for May
or as an Independent candidate in re
sponse to a largely signed petition rep
resenting many of the prominent busi
ness and professional men of the city.
Mr. Caufleld s acceptance follows:
"To W. A. Huntley, V. Harris, A.
Mlhlstine, M. C. Strickland, Linn E.
Jones, Sol Garde, D. C. Latourette, R.
Holman, R. Petzold, J. M. Price,
S. M. Ramsby, C. Hartman and others:
'In answer to the communication ad
dressed to me asking you to be allow
ed to nominate me as an independent
candidate for Mayor of this city, would
say that I appreciate the sincerity of
the request made personally by many
of my fellow citizens, as well as in
the communication referred to, and
will accept the nomination. '
"If elected I will to the best of my
ability endeavor to merit the expres
sion of confidence and esteem you have
so kindly made in your letter.
"Thanking you for the honor confer
red, I remain
"Yours very respectfully,
"B. G. CAUFELD."
To date Mr. Caufleld is the only can
didate who has developed for the May
oralty. Representing as he does the
anti-franchise sentiment of the city,
Mr. Caufield's election is practically
assured. The franchise question will
be the only issue in the contest and
with two-thirds of the voters of the
city opposed to the granting of long
time franchises of an uncertain char
acter, the election of a Mayor and four
Councilmen in opposition thereto may
be expected by a proportionate vote.
The annual election will be held Mon
day, December 4.

it is extremely difliniult to suppress
gambling for the reason that the au
thority of the state officers to forcibly
close and keep closed places where
gambling is earned on and to incur ;
expenses for such purposes is qpes- j
tionable, and without such authority!
it is almos impossible for state officers i
to suppress gambling and pool rooms. I
