to the governor the petition and for

It is alleged by the city authori-

doubtful. Many are even drinking
it without boiling, and the; health
board greatly fears sickness as a re

Has Bought an Oregon Home-

Portland, July 28. Portland
Oregonian: Attired in the same
style of drees that has accompanied
his fame throughout the country,
and with his fatherly manners that
have made him a favorite with eve
ry one, Joaquin Millerj? the venerable
poet and prose writer of Oregon and
California: arrived in Portland last
evening en route to the East, where
be will publish his latest book,
"For Love Is All; in All. Love."
Mr. Miller is staving at the Im
perial hotel.
some time ago the poet purchas
ed a tract of land near Siuslaw,
where in the future, he intends to
make his residence and build anoth
er house which he can call home.
"I will spend my summers on
my Oregon Farm," he said laet
night, ehortly after his arrival,
"and my winters at my place
in California near Fruitvale. My
latest purchase is a beautiful place,
and ha? enchanting surroundings.
I shall spend my days fishing and
hunting and riding over the moun
tains which lead to tha sea beyond."
' : Mr. Miller eays he is feeling bet
ter than he ever did in his life, in
spite of bis 64 years. '
"I feel so good at times,' 'hc con
tinued, "that I am tempted to fight
the first big, strapping fellow I
meet, just to amuse the crowd, and
myselt as well."
"I love to look back to tbe dajs
of old, during the 60V, when I was
a county judge in Eastern Oregon
by dayiight and foupht Indians at
night," he declared. "T.mes were
different in those days. We did
not have the modern implements of
war, nor the libraries to study law
that the present age has produced
About all I possessed then was an
old law bjok and two six-shooters.
That was down near Canyon City."
Speaking of the early days re
minded Mr. Miller that his two firet
books, "Specimens" and"Joaquin,"
were published in Portland by Geo.
Himes, now secretary of tbe His
torical Society.
This is Mr: Millers first visit to
Portland since last year, when he
was the guest of the Exposition on
Miller day." "Think of it!" he
exclaimed, "there was cne day that
was truly mine. And howlappre
cia'ed it. And how I look back
acd think about the great honor
bestowed upon me by the citizens
of Portland and Oregon. How a
man' loves to be loved. D you re
member what Browning says: 'and
a man isn't loved every day.' Eve
ry time I recall my day at the Fair
it brings to my mind Browning s
qUGtatio". And I think of the lc
casitn often. It was a great honor
and 1 shall never forget it."
As' Mr. Miller talks his great
mind aot?, and now and then he
will bring out something amusing,
followed almost instantly with pa
thos. ' He always refers to himself
in the lighter vein. He likes to
talk about bis homee, his writings,
his talks with others and how he
passes tbe time away.
I have wiitten tio much al
ready," he said, wben questioned
about whether he bad undereaken
any new books. Then he related
how he writes, how he has written
and how he will always write,
am methodical in my writings.
can t nelp but write," tne gray-
haired white-whiskered poet said
"I am an early riser and invariably
do my work in the morning. J
never write with my clothes on
Tne work is done just as 1 arise
from my bed. I take my coffee first
and follow it with a cigar. Ihen
sit down for an hour or so, or just
as I feel like it. Some days I will
write something every morning for
a week. Then, perhaps, the notion
will leave me and I will not touch
the pen for a day or two or contin
ue to write every other day and so
Mr. Miller still uses the old-style
quill pen.
The plates of all of Joaquin Mil
ler's works, with the exception of
"Memories in Rhyme," were de-
stroyed in the San Francisco fire
They were all in readiness to go on
the press, and, were " a total lossi
The book which was to have contain
ed all of theauthor's writings would
have covered six hundred pages. ,
-. Mr. Miller wbb asked which
home he considered the best tbe
one in Oregon or the other near
Fruitvale, in Redwtoi Canyon.
Tears came to tbe old man's eyes
as he thought a moment. . -"My
other home," be said, mean-i
ing the one in California, ''has nev
er seemed the same since mother
died. I can never tbir k of it with
out thinking of her. I wrote many
of my bett woiks there, but after
the death 'of my mother . it just
seemed that I ju t couldn't, stay
there any longer. I came up to Or
egon, purchased some land, -and
shall spend the summers there lor
the rest of my life."
Mr. Miller will remain here until
today or tomorrow, when he leaves'
for New York and Boston on busi
ness in connection with publica
tion of his new book. He consid
ers "For .Love is All In All,
Love," one of his best works. The
"City Beautiful," though, he still
regards as his masterpiece.
New York, July 25. Some of
Harry Thaw's lawyers have mao
it known that he will positively
to trial for killing Stanford White.
and that there will be no proceed
ings in the criminal courts looking
to an examination into his mental
condition. Furthermore, it was
said that the trial would begin on
October I5. Tbe prosecution has
assured . Thaw's lawyers that the
district attorney will certainly not
apply for a commission to examine
Thaw, and that should an informal
request be made by representatives
of his mother fer Bucb action, it will
not be acceded to. Thaw's pres
ent lawyers were hired to stave off
insanity proceedings and to get a
trial for their client.
From the fact that the firm re
tained bv Thaw's mother is stiL
working on tbe case and is gather
ing evidence to show that Thaw is
insane, there has been a lot of spec
ulation as to what move is to be
made by them. With the announce
ment yesterday that they would
have no standing in criminal pro
ceedings as counsel for Mrs. Wil
liam Thaw, there came a report
that application would be made
shortly to the civil courts for the
appointment of a lunacy commis
sion. While Mrs. William lnaw
would not be recognized in any
ciinoinal proceedings of this kind,
and ou such an application, backed
up by affidavits of experts declar
ing Thaw insane, a supreme court
judge nrght order Thaw's trial be
fore such a commission. The situ
ation will be an entirely covel one,
no such application ever having
been made before in the supreme
court, in the case of a person-who
was facing trial on a criminal charge.
Washington, Pa., July 2I. Phil
ip Kodney, ot Lentreville, this
county,, a prominent business man,
discovered recently that bis wife
had been taking spending money
out of his trousers pockets while
he slept. He remonstrated with

tinued, and terious quarrels follow
