CITY NEWS IN BRIEF
Parties desiring offices in The Oregon
ton bulldinc. may inquire of Portland
Trust Company of Oregon. No. 123 First
street, or the superintendent in the build
lag. Bettering the Finn Service. The
board of fire commissioners have author
ized a, number of changes in the location
of the apparatus of the department, and
Chief Buchtel is very busy having them
carried out. The hose -wagons at Albina
and Holladays addition are to be filled
with two Babcock extinguishers, and also
with two extension ladders, which will
render them much more efficient. The
ladders are after a design invented by
Foreman Holden, of hose 3, and Chief
Buchtel says they are the best ladders he
has ever seen. They can be extended to
22 feet, and the splice is the strongest
part of them. They can be added to in
definitely. Truck No. i will in a few days
be moved from East Portland into the
new house in Holladay's addition, and
three horses will be placed on it. This Is
in the line adopted by the board of mov
ing apparatus to high ground, so that
running to fires will be down hill as
much as possible. There has been some
complaint about this move among resi
dents in the vicinity of the present house,
but it is considered that, with the hose
cart In the new house, it will afford them
better protection than it does now. On
occasion of alarms, No. 1 truck will here
after cross to the east end of Morrison
street bridge and await orders there. No.
2 truck will cross Madison-street bridge
to East Fifth street. These changes -will
give the East Side better protection than
it has ever had before. No. 2 chemical,
at Holladay's addition, and No. 4 will, in
case of alarms, go north to Albina or
south to Morrison street, which will also
tend to better the protection of East Side
New Laws in Fohce Now. Numerous
orders are being sent to Salem for cer
tified copies of bills passed by the late
legislature. Everybody knows how the
bill he "was interested in looked when it
was presented, but some of them were so
amended that their fathers did not know
them after they had been squeezed
through the milL The doctors have or
dered a copy of the bill regulating the
practice of surgery. It has been rumored
that at the last minute it was amended
so that there is only one homeopath on
the examining board, instead of two, and
the homeopaths wish to know If this is
so. The old bridge commission has or
dered a copy of the new bridge bill, as
the members want to know If they have
bo en legislated out of office, and, if so,
why and how, and when they were let
go. Other parties have ordered a copy of
the same bill, and wish to find out how
the legislature can submit the vehicle
toll proposition to a vote of taxpayers.
Sheriff Sears, it is understood, broke away
from Senator McGinn to fly to Salem and
procure a certified copy of the law re
ducing his emoluments. There was some
kind of a game law passed, and sports
men, as well as marketmen, arc anxious
to find out what it is, and how it affects
their interests. Lots of others are after
A Misunderstanding Averted. An in
cident occurred in the barroom of the
Portland yesterday, which has afforded
considerable amusement to the friends
of the Interested parties. A prominent
politician and member of the late legisla
ture, and a friend, a member of a popu
lar church, met on the sidewalk of Sixth
street. In front of the Portland. Both
were seeking liquid.. refreshments, but
neither liked to ask the other to join.
The church member had a sore throat,
and he had been told to take some rum
and gum. The legislator just wanted his
usual fill. He was afraid to ask his friend
to drink because he belonged to the
church, and the friend did not like to ask
the legislator to drink for fear of creating
the impression that he was a tippler.
After passing the time of day, and all
that sort of thing, they separated. One
dodged around the corner and through
the Morrison-street entrance to the hotel
bar, the other went in the front way, and
they arrived at the bar together. They
stared at each other in surprise for a
moment, and then the legislator said:
"I'll shake you for the drinks." Explana
tions followed, and In future they will
not be so shy of each other.
The Ironing Cured Him. Theodore
Love, an apprentice of the British ship
ChSUlngsford, from Glasgow, was arrested
yesterday by Deputy Sheriff C. A. Wheeler
as insane. The captain of the ship has
had Love in irons for the past two days,
and released him only on the arrival of
Deputy Wheeler. Young Love thereupon
signified his intention of thrashing the
master on the spot, with the whole crowd
on board included, if necessary. It is
reported that Love is demented over a
frail female employed In a variety show
on Third street, near Pine. He was seen
in the county jail, and appears just j.s
rational as anybody. He is neatly at
tired in a blue, uniform, with cap to match.
He answers all questions put to him civ
illy and Intelligently. The Ironing by the
captain appears to have completely cured
The Ferrt Nearly Headt. The Van
couver ferry-hoat, which was sunk at
the head of Shaw's island a short time
since, has had the hole in her side re
paired, and has. besides, had her ma
chinery thoroughly overhauled, and has
been repainted, and is now ready for bus
lnoss. She will probably be put on the
route again tomorrow. Persons who have
occasion to cross the Columbia with teams
will be glRd to know that she is running
again, for, although the boat employed in
her place has carried teams and wagons
where possible, it has been considerable
trouble to unhitch teams and get wagons
on and off the bow of an ordinary steamer.
Commission Organises. Messrs. Solo
mon Hirsch. N. K. West, and J. V. Beach,
named as citizens of Portland to compose
the committee in the bill which passed the
legislature providing for the purchase of
the Morrison-street bridge and Stark
street ferry, met yesterday and organized.
The members took their oaths of office,
and filed them with City Auditor Gambeil.
after which they held their first official
meeting at the office of J. V. Beach. Mr.
Hirsch was chosen president, and Mr.
Beach selected to act as clerk of the com
mittee. No other business of Importance
was transacted, and the committee will
meet again today.
The Centurt Wak Books. The Ore
gonlan now has a nice supply of these
books, bound in full cloth, for sale at the
small price of $3. If they are to be mailed
to you. add 58 cents for postage. This
same history of the war, when sold in
book form by the Century Company, sold
for $34. When this supply is exhausted. It
will undoubtedly be the last opportunlty
to get them through The Oregonlan. We
also Have a few of Napoleon bound in
cloth, for sale at $2 58: also 50 cents to be
ndded for postage.
Gaff Wiu, Bk at Liberty. It Is under
stood that Dr. J. V. Gaff will be released
on bonds today. He expected to be out
yesterday, and bondsmen presented them
selves, but the court was not in readiness
to examine the matter, so It went over,
nnd will doubtless come up again this
A New Section of the endowment rank,
K. of P., has been organized in this city,
with headquarters -MC Marquam building.
Knights desiring to take out insurance
can make application to George F. Mc
Plant Now. Hoses, carnations, pansles.
Prices very low at Burkhanlt Bros.
Not Too Late to Save Monet. The va
rious city officials, whose salaries have
been secured to them by the failure of the
charter bill to pass the legislature, feel
very -well satisfied with the situation of
affairs, and are now ready to do all in
their power to run things economically.
Mayor Frank Is of the opinion that, bar
ring the saving which would have been
effected by the cutting of salaries and the
combining of the offices of street commis
sioner and city surveyor, the council can
effect as much reduction of expenses as
would have been secured by the passage
of the charter bilL He thinks that the
saving caused by combining the offices
of commissioner of streets and city sur
veyor would have been offset by the cre
ation of the office of city en
gineer, with the necessary assist
ants. He says the saving to have
been effected by having the cost of laying
out streets and sewers made a charge to
the property-owners interested. Instead of
to the city, can be accomplished by an
ordinance, and that such an ordinance
will be passed. He is not ashamed of the
record of the city administration. There
has not been money squandered and there
is not going to be. He says he Is going- to
give the city an economical administra
tion, as he promised, and the council is in
unison -with him in this matter.
To Help Fruit Interests. The govern
or has signed the bill amending the old
act creating the state board of horticul
ture. The new law confers more power
on the members of the board, making
them quarantine officers, with power to
quarantine any trees or fruit imported into
this state. There are three commissioners
to be appointed, and, as soon as this is
done, the board will get to work. The
board had no quarantine power before.
It now has power to declare old worth
less trees which are damaging other trees
or orchards a nuisance: and, if they are
not taken care of, to call the attention of
the county court to the matter. The board
has not authority, as some suppose, to go
out and order immediate destruction of
old orchards wherever it pleases. The
board consists of five commissioners, of
whom three are now to be appointed by
the governor and secretary of state for
the second, fourth and fifth districts.
Superintendent Gardner's Trip. Su
perintendent Gardner leaves this morn
ing with three girls on the West Side
road to place them in homes situated
at different points on that line. He will
also visit children scattered in different
parts of Washington and Yamhill coun
ties, and will not return before Saturday.
Seventeen children have been placed out
during this month, exclusive of the three
he takes with him this morning. Expe
rience has taught caution in the manner
of placing children, and, no matter how
good the references might be, the super
intendent takes them personally or by his
deputy, and will in future pay much at
tention to visiting them after they have
been so placed. One little 8-year-old girl
was removed from a home the society
deemed unfit for her in Pendleton on Sat
urday, and returned to the society's home.
Mild Weather East of Mountains.
The weather has been as mild and spring
like in Eastern Oregon as in this sec
tion, and the snow on the Rockies has
begun to melt and the Snake river is ris
ing. The water Is already so high that the
force employed by Captain Symons,
United States engineers, in improving the
navigation of the Snake between Hunt
ington and the Seven Devils country,
by blasting rocks out of th channel, has
been compelled to cease operations. Mr.
P. G. Eastwick, who has had charge of
the party, is laying up the drill, scows,
etc., and operations will not be resumed
until after the flood in the river is over.
Every one will be pleased to know that the
Snake Is running off so early in the sea
son, as this lessens the probability of high
water here in June.
Bridge Commission Or.GANizEs. Messrs.
Solomon Hirsch, N. K. West and J. V.
Beach, named as citizens of Portland to
compose the committee in the bill which
passed the legislature providing for the
purchase of the Morrison-street bridge
and Stark-street ferry, met yesterday and
organized. The members took their oaths
of office, and filed them with City Auditor
Gambeil, after which they held their first
official meeting at the office of J. V.
Beach. Mr. Hirsch was chosen president,
and Mr. Beach selected to act as clerk of
the committee. No other business of im
portance was transacted, and the com
mittee will meet again today.
A New Ten-Inch Main. The water
committee have about completed the lay
ing of a 10-inch main from the boneyard
down to a point near the North Pacific
lumber mills. It has long been desired for
protection to the mills and factories in
that section. Chitf Buchtel has been
superintending the putting in of eight fire
hydrants on this line. In the thinly-settled
part of the district, they are 400 feet
apart, and at the lower end, 200 feet. The
pipe line runs down Sherlock avenue.
There has been some opposition to the
extension, and the work has been delayed
by injunction, but is now about completed.
A Change in Quarters. The quarters
of County Treasurer Lambert and County
School Superintendent Ackerman In the
City Hall were being carpeted yesterday,
and they will move in today, to be ready
to transact business there on March 1.
Persons having business with these of
ficials hereafter will find them on the
third floor of the City Hall, on the west

History Repenting; Itself.
The middle Columbia Is just now fur
nishing a large amount of sturgeon for
the Eastern markets, says The Dalles
Chronicle. This once despised shark is
now selling at three or four times as
much per pound as the once royal, but
now deposed, chinook. Thousands of
pounds are sent to Portland on the Reg
ulator every day, from down-river points,
and some of the fishermen are making
from $30, to as high as $90 per day. These
rubber-nosed sharks (the fish, not the
fishermen) are put In refrigerator cars
and shipped East, and In passing through
the Bad Lands of Dakota are changed in
tholr character, arriving in New York
as halibut, or sea bass, just as the mar
ket happens to demand. This versatllity
on the part of the sturgeon is what gives
it a greater value than the red-fleshed
salmon, which cannot travel under an
A Somnambulist's Peril.
Early Sunday morning a stranger in
Astoria came near losing his life while
perambulating the streets in his sleep.
He was staying at the Parker house, and
was on his way to that hostelry when the
accident happened. Officer Seafeldt was
standing on the Occident corner when he
noticed a man walking straight towards
the edge of the dock back of Conn's drug
store. He staggered in such a manner
that the officer became suspicious, and
called to him to beware of the danger
ahead of him. Seeing that he paid no
notice to his warning, the officer rushed
after the man and grasped him by the
coat just as he went over the edge of the
wharf. His weight threw the officer flat,
but he held on with a death grip. and.
summoning all his strength, pulled him
to a place of safety. The man had been
walking in his sleep.
EAST SIDE AFFAIRS.
Bull Run Water to Be Turned In
Friday or Saturday.
The people on the East Side may expect
to have Bull Run water to drink by Sat
urday. As the legislature has directed
that the East Side plant be turned over
to the water committee, the common coun
cil have coincided with the notion of
Mayor Frank, that it might as -well be
turned over first as last. The council
would have been better pleased if the leg
islature bad directed that the water com
mittee assume all the water bonds of the
old city of East Portland, but as it did
not. the situation will be accepted..
Mayor Frank will turn over the plant
March 1, and the council will make a
formal transfer at the next meeting,
March 6. An inventcry of the property,
preparatory to the transfer, is about com
pleted. Chief Engineer Smith is making every
effort to get the steel 24-inch pipe from
reservoir No. 2 connected with the East
Side 14-Inch main at Twelfth and Division
streets. The pipe has been laid to within
three feet of the main for some time, and
the connection is ready to be put in, but
It is necessary to lower the main some IS
Inches in ordsr to bring the two pipes
on a level, and this will take a little time.
He hopes to have everything in readiness
to turn on the water on March 1, or by
March 2, at latest; so the East Side peo
ple may look out for Bull Run water in
their faucets r-bout that time. They will
find it the best they ever tasted. Ice men
now look forward to a diminished demand
for ice this summer, and feel, with the
filter men and mineral water manufac
turers, that the introduction of Bull Run
water la not altogether an unmitigated
Evils of Narcotics.
The East Portland W. C. T. U. will
present to the board of school directors
a long petition asking that the law re
garding instructions in the evils of the
use of narcotics be enforced. Mrs. Sarah
Kern, state superintendent of the W. C.
T. U., stated yesterday the object of the
petition is to have the school board have
the teachers in the school give instruc
tions as required by law. "In the schools
of Portland," said Mrs. Kern, "the only
Instructions received along this line are in
the high school. In other portions of the
state regular instructions are given in
the classroom, and we want the same
thing done in the Portland schools. It is
certainly needed very much. Mere chil
dren on the East Side are frequently seen
chewing tobacco or smoking a pipe." The
cigarette bill. Mrs. Kern states, was not
passed by the legislature, not because
there was any opposition to it, but be
cause It was crowded out by other mat
ters. Tlie Piano AVnr Ended.
The war over the condition of the piano
in the Smith hall, among the secret or
ganizations meeting in the hall, has been
amicably adjusted. It is established that
the instrument was not tampered with
for the purpose of breaking up the enter
tainment of Fidelity lodge No. 14, A. O.
U. W., last Thursday, as has been re
peatedly charged against Winona tribe
of Red Men. It arose from the fact that
an examination of the instrument was
made during the forenoon of Thursday
by a tuner, and found to be in a bad con
dition. No attempt was made to put it
in condition that day, and in the evening
the performers on the programme could
not use it at all. There was great indig
nation over the "interference" with the
programme, but it has been shown the
piano was not tampered with by any one,
and was simply out of tune.
Latonrelle Falls School.
The Latcurelle Falls school closed last
week with appropriate exercises, which
were attended by a large number of the
patrons and friends of the school. The
examination papers showed that a high
standard of work had been maintained in
the school. Mrs. L. Allard is the teacher.
The highest grades made in the classes
were: "A," advanced, Mrs. Clara Young,
9S; Miss Edna Smith, 93: Miss Ella Cole,
93; Charles Latourelle, SO; "A," Interme
diate, Eva Latourelle, 9S; Charles Smith,
96; Robert Cox, 90: "B," intermediate,

90: "B," primary, Annie Larsen, 9S; John
nie Hoover, 9S.
The Holladay Pnrlc.
Mr. Myers, the City Park keeper, has
been at work for several days in the
Holladay city park, on Holladay avenue,
trimming up the trees and shaping the
ground. There are four blocks in this
park, and it is very conveniently located,
a branch of the City & Suburban railway
being on the north side. The intention is
to level up the surface, the higher por
tions and corners being cut down, and
the dirt used to fill up In the center, which
is somewhat low. AH the old stumps and
roots will be grubbed out, and, where the
growth of small trees is too thick, they
will be thinned out. Mr. Myers says the
park is a beautiful piece of ground and
may be made a popular park. Next year
it is expected more extensive improve
ments will be made on it. Walks will be
laid out and shrubbery will be planted.
All Are Locked Up.
All the parties alleged to be concerned
in the Overton robbery of over a year
ago have been locked up. Frank Warner
is held as a witness against the other
parties. Willard Plummer has been mak
ing an effort to secure bail, but has not
yet succeeded. He intends to make a
fight against the charge in Justice Bul
lock's court, if he can. Both Plummer
and W. J. Guy are married men, the
former having several children. They are
naturally very indignant over Warner's
action in Implicating them In the robbery,
and declare their Innocence of the crime.
Warner In his statement exonerates Rob
bins, who was first arrested, and declares
he had nothing whatever to do with the
The Xcw Qnnrtcrw.
The new quarters for the consolidated
truck company on Holladay avenue are
about ready, and may be occupied this
evening. A. J. Coffee, city electrician,
was busy yesterday putting in the electric
alarm apparatus, and had about com
pleted the work in the evening. Stalls for
the horses are finished, and all the ar
rangements on the lower floor were com
pleted yesterday. The painters were at
work in the second story putting on the
finishing touches in the rear of the build
ing. The general arrangement of the
building Is similar to that of the other
fire buildings. It is not yet known who
will compose the company, beyond the
fact that it will be made up of the other
two East Side truck companies.

LA LI BERT AD SAFE.
At Anchor Off the Month ol the Mis
NEW ORLEANS. Feb. 27. The Mexi
can warship La Libertad, which yester
day was given up as lest by the local
Mexican consul, is at the present moment
safely anchored about 20 miles below the
passes. Second Engineer Joseph E. Pe
nedo and Quartermaster Bernado Lopez,
arrived In the city at noon and explained
that La Libertad left Vera Cruz about
a month ago to participate in the carni
val festivities. The voyage generally is
made in three days, but continual gales
and rough weather tossed the vessel for
many days, until, when about 40 miles
from the bar, the ship's coal gave out,
February 23. The sails had been lost dur
ing previous storms, and Captain Pedro
H. Salva, seeing his ship at the mercy
of the elements, with no means of reach
ing the passes, detailed Penedo, Lopez and
four sailors to attempt to reach land in
an open boat. Finally, three days after
leaving the ship, they reached the main
pass. Then Penedo and Lopez, made their
way to the city. Outside of the partial
loss of sails and the giving- out of the
coal supply, no other calamity was re
ported. A supply of coal will be obtained
here by the Mexican consul and sent
down to La Libertad at once.

PORTLAND, Feb. 27. fTo the Editor.)
Is It not time for the law-abiding citizen
to pause and tbTnk after the assault of
yesterday by a sheriff upon a senator?
I think that the people must censure Mr.
Sears severely for drawing a deadly
weapon. No matter what laws Mr. Mc
Ginn was instrumental in passing; no
matter whose perquisites they cut off,
he is not personally answerable to any
one. Should a man who was defeated or
whose pet measures were beaten assault
Mr. Cole or Mr. Burke because they were
helpful to such result? How does it look
for a man to draw a weapon, which is
given him to defend the law, to break it?
I say this action is without excuse, and
Mr. Sears should be made to answer to the
violated law, to say nothing of his oath
of office. I have been an admirer of Sher
iff Sears, and was not In favor of altering
the salary or fees during the present term,
but now that Mr. Sears has so plainly
shown that he is not qualified to govern
himself, how is he fitted to assert the
dignity of the law to other law-breakers?
I am sorry, as I am sure are hundreds of
others, to say: "Mr. Sears, you have vio
lated the law; you must answer to the
law for the violations, and we will be
glad to see the law vindicated."

of bitter doses, with the pain and grip

We have completed our inventory and
closed our books for 1S34. We wish to
thank our friends for their kind patronage,
and take pride in stating that our trade,
since removing to our new store, corner
Third and Oak streets, has been far ahead
of our most sanguine expectations. It
proves that the public appreciates honest
values and fair dealing. Our aim has
been and will be to give good, reliable
clothing at reasonable prices. We are
making at our mill In Albany lines or
neat, desirable patterns In cheviots, cassl
raeres and tweeds for spring and summer
trade. We have also placed our advance
orders for the latest effects in imported
fabrics. These, as well as our own make
of goods, will be made in regular, short
and stout, long and slim, and extra sizes,
enabling us to fit any one. Our country
order trade by samples has increased so
that we -were obliged to open a separate
department for same, and we send sam
ples and cuts of all lines, with plain rules
for measurement, free to any address.
This coming season we intend to devote
"more attention to our boys' and children's
department, and shall carry full lines of
novelties and staples. Our uniform de
partment has been a great success. We
