I0SE -GD3JST TALKS
SAN -FRANCISCO'S HEFOIIM 3IOVE
ME5T SEVERELY CRITICIZED.
He Defend HI Calling and Appoint
ment 'as Police Commissioner,
Vic Has Created the Storm.
Mr. Moses A. Gunst, -whose appointment
to the board of police commissioners of
San Francisco by the retiring governor,
Markham, has created a controversy In
that city, is In Portland on a brief busi
ness visit.
Mr. Gunst's appointment, it might be
said, is almost wholly responsible for the
recent "reform" movement in that city,
'which seems to be more or less general.
Since Us arrival Mr. Gunst has held a
sort of levee, receiving numerous calls
from his many acquaintances in this city,
and also from many people who are per
haps attracted by the notoriety which he
has attained through the opposition to his
appointment as police commissioner. He
.as seen yesterday by a representative
of this paper, and willingly talked of the
political opposition to him in San Francis
co, and of the political situation in that
city i general. He said that the oppo
sition was not nearly so widespread as al
leged, that it was purely a matter of
persecution by a single San Francisco
paper, and that, in fact, his appointment
was approved by a majority of the best
citizens. He referred to the agitation in
San Francisco over the matter of cor
ruption in municipal affairs, and said that
it would amount to nothing; that it was
greatly overestimated, and that the lead
ers were chiefly people of no importance.
He also referred to the improved business
outlook in San Francisco, occasioned by
the prosepct of the new railroad, which
will be built by popular subscription, and
whlc h will run through the San Joaquin
valley to the city.
Tr appearance Mr. Gunst is between 43
and 50 years of age. He is short of stat
ure, with square shoulders, and a large
Jioad set very firmly on the same. -He
usually stands with his hands thrust deep
In his trousers pockets. His face habitu
ally wears the expression of much worldly
wisdom and he talks little and to the
point.
"The San Francisco Examiner is re
sponsible for the opposition to my ap
pointment," said Mr. Gunst. "The other
papers had very little or nothing to say
against It, and when they saw that I was
really being persecuted by the Examiner,
they drew away from the subject entirely.
The best citizens in San Francisco are on
my side, and I have received many ex
pressions of sympathy and indignation
over the unjustifiable attacks upon me.
2Co one has been able to rake up anything
against my character as an honest man
and a good citizen. The Examiner had
to admit that I was all that, but wound
x.p trjing to make m; out something vile;
but it's just spite work; that's all It is.
Thy say I have no business to be a police
commissioner because 1 have something
to do with a saloon and with the Califor
nia Jockey Club. I don't see why that
should disqualify me. I am in the cigar
business and I i-aw that it was desirable
to have a good saloon connected with it.
1 therefore secured an interest in a re
spectable saloon. Had I known that 'the
experiment would prove so profitable, I
would have bought the saloon instead of
securing only an interest in it. I am not
connected with any game or gambling out
l't. "Part of their howl was on the ground
that I owned stock in the association
known as the California Jockey Club,
which conducts horse races through the
winter season on the Bay district track.
" ell, I do own stock In that association,
but I have no more interest in the receipts
from the book privileges than any other
member. Of course, those receipts are one
of the principal sources of revenue from
the track. I Invested in Jockey Club stock,
"because I believed the association to be a
good thing lor the city, and for me. There
is nothing dishonorable In it. It brings a
great many people with a lot of money to
the city every winter, and it helps "my
business.
"Then thore has been a whole lot of uncalled-for
talk about my place of busi
nessstatements Insinuating that I run a
gambling joint in the back room of my
store or upstairs in the same building.
Those statements are untrue. I have a
lease on the whole building. Well, I let
the second floor to the California Jockey
Club, and the third lioor to the Washoe
flub. TJpe dubs are good tenants, and I'd
lke to make a long lease -nith each of
them. What if I do let rooms in my build
ing to a club? Why should that be any
thing against me? You might as well at
tack the Ohamber of Commerce of Port
land for lotting rooms to the Commercial
Club Now, hero is an example of the
.ort of & deal I am getting from time to
turns-' -
Mr Piinst hre read a paragraph from
the SatiFrancisco Examiner of February
11, It Avai Jrom the report of a speech by
".he Rev. Thomas Filben, who spoke at the
First Methodist church in San Francisco
!.m Sunday evening on "Politicians or
People; a Lexow Meditation."
"Mose Gunst's cigar store is on Sutter
and Kearney streets. Back of the store is
a poker room; above that is a faro game,
and above that Is a jockey club. Yet they
wondered that we didn't want Mose Gunst
for a police commissioner."
I have stood that sort of thing about
long enough." sAid Mr. Gunst, and he ex
hibited a copy of a telegram which he
said he had sent to the Examiner that day.
The telegram demanded to know If the
preacher's remarks had been correctly
quoted, and. if not. that it be so stated,
and a retraction published.
"This opposition to me is only a bluff,
anvway," continued Mr. Gunst. "They
won't make anything eat of it. Governor
T?i:dd himself said it was a Muff, when he
a r pomted MeMsies over Governor Mark
!um's appointment of myself. Bttdd's
words were:
" 'It is a bluff, but we'll see if it will
v ork-
"Judge Sanderson, of the superior court,
in San Frandseo, now has the case in
.' and, and & decision will doubtless be ren
dered within the next M days."
Mr. Gunst was asked his opinion of
the so-called reform movement on foot in
San Francisco.
It won't amount to anything." said he.
The host citisens are not in it. No such
agitation is necessary, aad it is damag
ing to the city. The leaders of it are a
lot of third-rate, sand-lot preachers, who
are the laughing stock of the best citi
rcis. Their citizt-r.s" mass meetings, of
whl h suih lergthj reports are published,
arc not attended by any such ecormous
BIoKe A. Gnnst
crowds as the press states. "Why, at the
last meeting only about 303 were present.
Mayor Sutro wasn't there, nobody of any
Importance was there. The only man at
all well known was Judge Heightoa, a
lawyer. "Well, I have said enough on that
subject.
"The business outlook in San Francisco
is growing brighter since a competing
railroad from the San Joaquin has be
come an assured fact. There will be no
debt on that road; $2,000,609 has already
been subscribed, and it will run up to
56,000,GOO. San Francisco alone will doubt
less subscribe $4,000,000. Another thing
which will prove a strong factor in mak
ing gocd times in San Francisco is the
completion of the marine cable from
Honolulu to San Francisco, which is In
prospect."
One of the last acts of Governor Mark
ham before retiring from office was the
appointment of Mr. Gunst to the place
on the San Francisco board of fire com
missioners made vacant by the resigna
tion of Mr. Dan Burns. Mr. Burns was
regarded as a prominent political boss in
the recent California elections, and was
alleged to be the right-hand man of the
Southern Pacific Railroad Company. Peo
ple said that Gunst's appointment was
by request of Burns; but the chief ob
jection raised against Mr. Gunst was ow
ing to the fact that some of his business
interests were in lines which, in a meas
ure, come under the supervision of the
police; that he was a sporting man, and
that his appointment would be a step in
opposition to the proposed movement in
the direction of muncipal reform which
has apparently become the popular cry in
San Francisco.
Mr. Gunst's arrival has afforded an
opportunity to some dozens of people to
repeat the justly celebrated. "Mose Gunst
has came" joke. When Mr. Gunst has
gone, the same persons will doubtless
gleefully remark: "Mose Gunst has went."
It is a coincidence that Henry Hausman,
Mr. Gunst's local business parner, is a
Portland police commissioner, while Mr.
Gunst occupies a similar position in San
Francisco.
MAINS TO BE CLEANED.
Sediment AV1I1 lie Removed, So "Water
"Will Be Kept Clear.
The water committee, after considerable
delay, which could not well be avoided,
has decided to commence a systematic
blowing off of all water mains, in order
to clear them, as far as possible, of the
sediment which has accumulated in them.
As there are about 75 miles of mains in
the city, on the West Side, the task will
require some time. The work will be done
at night, so as to inconvenience water
consumers as little as possible. There
have been occasional complaints about
muddy water in the pipes since Bull Run
water was turned on. These, however,
have been merely local, and the trouble
was caused by sudden opening and clos
ing of tha fire hydrants, or something
of the sort.
Probably but few people have any idea
of the amount of sand and mud, which
has been deposited in the water mains
during the time water was pumped from
the Willamette; but any one who has
seen the water furnished during times of
fiood in the river must be aware that it
Is considerable. When it has been neces
Kiry to cut mains to put in new connec
tions. It has frequently been found that
10 or 12-Inch mains were from a half to
two-thirds filled with sediment; so it is
no wonder that some people have seen
muddy water since Bull Run was brought
in.
The plan for cleaning the sediment out
of the mains is to close the gates In
the higher parts of the city and then
open the blow-off gates In the lower part,
connecting with the sewers and the river,
and draw off all the water. Then the
gates on the high ground will be opened,
and the water let in with a rush, which,
it is expected, will stir up and carry away
the greater portion of the deposits In the
mains. While this Is gcing on, it is prob
able that many persons will find the
water muddy occasionally for a time, but
they must not Imagine that Bull Run has
become muddy, which it never does; nor
that a reservoir has broken or any acci
dent happened; and when the mains are
once cleaned out, they will have no more
muddy water, winter or summer.
It may be said here that Bull Run, at
the present time, after five weeks without
rain, and cold weather in the mountains,
Is lower than it has ever before been
known to be since it was talked of as a
source of water supply for this city; but,
after the supply for this city is furnished,
there is still water to a depth of about
five inches running over the wing dam,
or waste way, for a distance of. 400 feet,
which would supply several cities the size
of Portland, and there is plenty more run
ning down the channel of the stream. So
there r.ted be no fear of the supply from
Bull Run falling short until Portland ap
proaches New York or London In size.
o
A TRIP TO SALEM.
Portland ltaKincss Men Want the
State to Iluild a Portage Road.
Portland will be well represented at the
state capitol today. A special train will
leave at 9:13 this morning, carrying to
Salem not only a large committee from
the Chamber of Commerce and the direc
tors of the Portland bureau of transpor
tation, but also many others of the bus
iness men of the city. The main object of
the trip will be to urge upon members of
the legislature the necessity of construct
ing a portage road around the obstructions
In the Columbia river in Wasco county,
known as the dalles. Representative
Boothby. of Morrow county, has a bill
before the legislature providing for the
immediate building of a state portage
road between The Dalles and Celilo. and
this bill is indorsed by Portland business
men. The following letter will furnish
the necessary information to all who de
sire to accompany the party to Salem:
"In order that as many of our citizens
as can be Induced to go may take ad
vantage of the opportunity to visit Salem
this Thursday, the 14th Inst., kindly pub
lish this as an invitation to merchants,
taxpayers and all interested in legislation
bearing upon the interests of this city, to
accompany the Chamber of Commerce
special committee and the board of di
rectors of the transportation bureau on
the excursion to Salem, leaving Central
station at 9:15 this morning. The expense
of the trip will be nominal, and the train
will return, arriving in Portland at prob
ably 11 P. M.
"Only a few days remain of the session
of the legislature, and whatever is to be
done must be done at once, and it makes
it doubly important that whatever ef
forts are put forth to secure legislation
should be made at this time.

SEARS AM) HIS FEES
TWO MONTHS' SALARY HELD OUT
OX THE SHERIFF.
The County Authorities Are Waiting
Patiently for Him to Settle
That Little Balance.
Sheriff Sears has not yet settled with the
county court the commissions collected
and charged up against him by County
Accountant Pope, amounting to ?1200. As
a consequence, Sheriff Sears has drawn
no salary for the months-of December and
January, his warrants being withheld. Of
the amount claimed to be due. Sheriff
Sears has been endeavoring to induce the
county judge and commissioners to permit
him to retain 5140, which he claims he col
lected as mileage, but this has not been
agreed upon. Under the present law the
sheriff is not entitled to retain any fees
whatever, nor mileage. Everything must
be turned over into the county treasury.
The sheriff gets his salary and the profit
of boarding prisoners, if there is any
profit. Sheriff Sears says there is no profit
in boarding prisoners. He gets $3 a week
for each prisoner and gives them two
meals a day. Out of this he pays his
jailer and one cook, a colored woman.
Assistance In the cooking line Is given by
prisoners. The bill for boarding prisoners
during the present Incumbency of Mr.
Sears, has averaged over $1000 per month.
He states that there is no profit in it,
and he doubtless knows. He receives be
sides H 50 per week for boarding United
States prisoners. There are a few of
these. For taking prisoners and insane
persons to Salem, he is paid mileage by
the state.
The money which Accountant Pope
clams is due from Sheriff Sears is almost
wholly from commissions collected on ex
ecutions where the sheriff sells property.
When property Is sold by the sheriff upon
execution, the sheriff collects the amount
of the bid, the costs, advertising bill, and
a commission which Is for the work of
making the sale of the real estate, and the
amount of the commission is accord
ing to the amount realized from
the sale a per cent being charged.
After the property is sold, the sheriff
makes a return to the state circuit court
of the amount received for the sale of the
property, the amount of the costs, adver
tising and commissions, and the judge of
the state circuit court looks it all over,
and, if satisfied, within a certain length of
time confirms the sale and orders the
deed made by the sheriff to the purchaser.
Sheriff Sears says the plaintiffs in these
suits buy in the property themselves In
most of the instances, and that, where
the plaintiffs bid in the property, no
money passes from which he can secure
the commission. He declares that a de
cision of the supreme court, quoted in
14th Oregon, says that where plaintiffs
bid in property upon execution, they need
not pay commission on the sale; so, If
they won't pay, he has no means of col
lecting. Sheriff Sears states, further,
in ,this connection, that lawyers have said
to him, in many instances: "If the sher
iff gets the commission, I'll pay it. You
are the best sheriff Multnomah county
ever had. You get up in the middle of
the night and serve our papers, and you
accommqdate us in every manner possi
ble. I do not have to pay this commis
sion, but, if the sheriff gets it, I am will
ing to pay It." The sheriff interpretes
such remarks of attorneys as equivalent
to this: "Here, Sheriff Sears, the law,
according to that 14th Oregon decision,
does not compel me to pay this commis
sion; but you are a first-class sheriff, ever
ready to oblige, so here is the commis
sion as a present."
So Sheriff Sears has retained the com
missions for himself. Accountant Pope
states that the returns of Sheriff Sears
show commissions collected amounting to
several months salary, besides the mileage
here mentioned, and that County Judge
Northup and the cornty commissioners
are unanimous in saying, that if Sheriff
Sears has collected this money, he "must"
pay it Into the county treasury. There the
case stands. Mr. Sears has not paid In any
money, and for two months his salary
warrant has not been ordered drawn for
him by the county court. The law says
If the sheriff "fails" to collect, or does
not pay over costs, his salary shall be
withheld. .
The sheriffs of all the counties paying
the sheriffs salaries, including Sheriff
Sears, are endeavoring to have the present
legislature pass a bill allowing them to
collect and retain mileage for service of
papers beyond a reasonable distance from
the court house.
A BIG REALTY DEAL.
The Entire Brooklyn, "Water Front
Under One Ownership.
A great amount of interest is shown in
Portland over the recent gigantic real
estate deal made in New York, particu
larly as It was successfully carried out
on an entirely new and novel plan. It
was the largest private real estate trans
action in the history of the world. It
exceeds in amount the money involved
in the combined purchases by the United
States of Louisiana from the French in
1S03 and of Alaska from Russia in 1SG7.
It was the practical consummation of
a funding scheme in real estate on a gi
gantic scale. Two and one-half miles of
water-front property in Brooklyn, ex
tending from the big bridge across East
river to the Erie basin, have been pur
chased by one man, and the magnitude
of the enterprise is best conceived when
it is stated that one feature of It was the
drawing of a single check for $12,273,750.
This check is probably the largest ever
drawn, and was signed by G. W. Young,
president of the United States Mortgage
Company, of New York, a gentleman who
has visited Portland in the past and is
well known to some of the financiers of
this city.
The United States Mortgage Company
had Its services enlisted in the great en
terprise when it was found that the pur
chase would involve the investment of
some $30,000,000.
The property purchased consists of
wharves and bonded warehouses of the
Brooklyn water front, the most exten
sive In the United States. They were
owned by numerous parties, between
whom there was keen rivalry for the
patronage of importers, shippers and for
warders of merchandise of the kind which
forms the great bulk of American com
mence. Each had a small army of em
ployes, and Its own scheduled fees. Econ
omy could easily be seen in the reorgan
ization of the clerical forces, for any one
of them was able to do the work of a
dozen companies, and under a single pro
prietary corporation there could be no
competition for business, and the services
of solicitors and drummers could be dis
pensed with.
Mr. Thomas A. Mclntyre is the origi
nator of the enterprise, and it took him
two years of quiet, persistent investiga
tion before he determined to purchase
the properties outright. Then he enlisted
the services of the United States Mortgage
Company. Arrangements were made to
borrow $17,500,000 of the required sum on
mortgage, the investment of the organ
izers being represented by a stock issue
of $12,500,000. Leading trust and insurance
companies of New York underwrote large
quantities of the bonds, and a title guar
antee company, after searching over 3000
conveyances, made a favorable report.
It was a memorable day on January 23
when the survivors of the old families of
Brooklyn and their representatives, the
owners of the historic warehouses and
water front of Brooklyn, met in the of
fice of the United States Mortgage Com
pany and transferred their property to a
new corporation organized to own and
manage it. When all the title papers
were stacked up on the table they made
an Imposing pile. The biggest transac
tion of the kind on record was quietly
completed, with less trouble than is often
involved in closing an ordinary trade.
The scheme of funding rel estate will

now probably be employed in the pur
chase of large blocks of properties. There
is a very decided tendency for money to
seek investment in real estate, either by
outright purchase or mortgages. Capital
has fared badly In many other directions
because of bad judgment and dishonesty
of those to whom It was Intrusted. The
success of the new Brooklyn corporation
will depend upon the judgment and
shrewdness of the management. When
the funding scheme is generally adopted
It will mark a new epoch, in real estate
transactions.

in fact, the bondary line of Multnomah
county. Certain Japanese apparently are
particularly fond of dogfightlng, and those
in this city have several bulldogs raised
with the special view of being canine
scrappers and money-winners for their
owners.
The result of the dogfight on last Sun
day will have a depressing effect on the
Japanese participants. They were not
only fined ?30 each and sent to jail for GO
days, but, after winning the fight, the ref
eree and stakeholder, John Mooney, de
cided against them. It was a clear case
of flim-flam, so far as the Japs are con
cerned. Mooney, the xeferee, has fared
almost as bad, as he and Frank J. Burk
walter, who also had an interest In the
dogfight, were also fined and sentenced
to 30 days in jail. The only difference in
their situation, as compared to the Japs,
is that they have appealed from the decis
ion of Justice Geisler, and about the time
that the Japs have paid the penalty of
the law, Mooney and Burkwalter will
have to put in their 30 days time, and be
losers of the additional costs which their
appeal involved. Mconey was formerly
employed at the International hotel, and
Burkwalter w.as employed In a First-street
cigar store for seme time. Both are dog
fanciers, but the result of this last fight
was not entirely to their fancy.
The county and city authorities are de
termined to put a stop to the brutal sport
of dogfighting, and. If another takes
place, participants and spectators will not
only be arrested but severely punished.
