HE HAS MADE NO PLEDGES
JtA-YOR-ETiECT ROWE ON HIS FU
"Will Appoint Capable Business Mca
to Alt Offices Within His
H. S. Rows. Mayor-elect of the city, "was
found yesterday afternoon receiving: the
congratulations of b!& friends in the office
of the Fire Com talari oners, in the same
quiet and genial manner that always
characterizes his business and social Inter
course. Mr. Rowe is a fine type of the
American business man, and his entire lite
has been spent In business pursuits, and
along administrative lines that peculiarly
flt him for the high position he will assumo
next July, when the city administration Is
placed, in hla charze.
When a&ked to define his municipal pol
icy, Mr. Rowe said: There are many
points oonnected with the municipal gov
ernment of Portland upon which I have
not yet formulated my policy, but the
platform upon which I was elected con
tained one chief plank, and that was
a pledge to give the city an honest, ef
ficient and business-like administration.
My idea of a city government Is that It Is
only another form, of business corporation,
and that Its affairs should be conducted
as strictly as the burtness of any corpora
tion, with the chief end in view of foster
ing economy, efficiency and honesty in
every department I believo that It Is
the duty of the Mayor to supervise the
workings of all departments, to be famlltar
with all tho details of the city govern
ment, and watchful at every point for the
city's interests. In my appointments for
the Board of Public Works I shall appoint
representative business men, of large prop
erty interests, who will be able to serve
the city without salary, and who will have
at Iwart the city's welfare. The Board of
Publlo Works 1st one of the most Important
bodice ever constituted In thw city sovph
ment of Portland, and I Intend to take
especial care in making up its member
ship. "The name caro I shall endeavor to give
yond the Intention to appoint able and
efficient business men."
Mayor-elect Row was born October IS,
1S51, In Bollver, N. Y. At an early age
his parents moved to Wisconsin, and there
he received his common-school education.
At the jge of 13 he learned telegraphy, and
secured a position of railroad operator,
and for 25 years afterward followed rail
roading in all grades and departments, up
to general superintendent. In 1880 Mr.
Rowe came West, and secured a position
with tho O. R. &. N. Co. as superintendent
of their docks and boats, later becoming
superintendent of the railroad division, and
finally general superintendent, which he
held until 18S7. In 1KH he was appointed
Fire Commissioner uneer the Frank ad
ministration, and again by Mayor Mason,
holding at present the presidency of the
board. Mr. Rowe Is a leading business
man on the East Side, and has always had
a talent and a fascination for all business
and administrative pursuits requiring ex
As Mayor, Mr. Row goes Into his office
untrammeled by any ante-election pledges,
and there Is little gossip about town as
to probable appointments. A prominent
Republican said last evening: "Mr. Rowe
has no election pledges to fulfill, and will
make his appointments at his own time.
It is generally conceded, however, that
Commissioner Flledner will be reappointed
If he desires the place. There will b
plenty of aspirants for the other positions,
but at present they ore all up In the air.' "
WILL PULL FOR PORTLAND
Delegates to the N. E. A. Will Try to
Get the Convention. Next Year.
The National Educational Association,
the great convention of teachers, will be
held at Charleston. S. C, July 9 to 15, and
a strong effort will be made at that time
to bring It to Portland next year. Pro
fessor E. B. McElroy, of Eugene, is In
the city In council with School Superin
tendent Rlgler. relative to the organiza
tion of plans to advance the effort to se
cure the convention.
Professor McElroy is vice-president,
while Profe&sDr Rlgler is Pacific Coast
member of the executive council, and
these gentlemen, together with the rest of
the. Oregon delegation, expect to leave
Portland for Charleston about July 1. and
do all they can towards furthering Port-

to all the other appointments I shall nrake,
for the Police Commission and the Fire
Commission, and the other minor offices
for which the Mayor Is given the appoint
ing power by the charter, which, from
the fact that the next Legislature Is Re
publican, will probably be safe from tink
ering. Economy Is a practical necessity
in the city government, and it will be my
aim, through keeping a careful match over
ever department, to guard against any
wast of public funds through careless
ness, inefficiency or dishonesty.
"The personnel of the new Council is
very satisfactory to nw, as it Is composed
of men of business nblllty and public spirit,
and I anticipate that It will develop Into
one of th most capable and efficient
bodies that has ever served the city.
Until July I shall hold my office as Fire
Commissioner, when I shall resign and
All my own vacancy, and appoint the suc
cessor to Commissioner Flledner. I have
not given any thought nor made up my

majority of these to "bring the convention
Two years ago Oregon's delegation at
tended the convention at Washington. D.
C, and nought at that time to get the
body to meet here, but "Los Angeles was
chosen after a hard fight. Last year the
Sregon delegation went to the Southern
illfornla city and secured the promise
from several hundred Eastern delegates to
vote for Portland this year The support
of the Washington and California delega
tions Is also expected. From the fact
that the convention was held In a Pa
cific Coast city last year, there Is a
possibility that a New England or a Mid
dle West town may he chosen as the meet

gation feel certain that it will be Portland

As Additional Precaution, Guards
Are on "Watch at the Conntr
The Citizens Legislative ticket managers
Mem to be apprehensive that the election
returns -will be tampered with, and have
placed men In the County Clerk's office
to -watch the ballots until, the official
count takes place. There Is. of course; no
reason whatever for the exercise of tuch
precautionary measures, as the ballots
are safely stored In the vault under double
lock and key, and as a. matter of fact It
would ba Impossible to alter the ballots
and tally Eheets, even Jf a person cor
rupt enough to undertake such work
could be secured.
County Clerk Holmes, however, was per
fectly willing that as many guards as de
elred be stationed in the office, and Is en
deavoring to make their stay as agree
able and comfortable as he can.
Judge Cake, although he has of late
posed as a regular Republican, and leader
of the so-called Republican Bar, has
shown himself very solicitous for the wel
fare of the Citizens ticket, and does not
seem to have forgotten that he thrice
rode Into office as one of the Irregulars.
The Judge, If he ever wavered, has re
turned to his old love, as he was one
of the rst callers at the County Clerk's
office to Inquire how the returns were be
Mr. Holmes ushered His Honor Into the
vault and showed him the steel furniture
with which the vault was furnished about
a year ago. There are a number ol large
compartments with a door to each, and a
lock and key, and Into these the Clerk
Informed Judge Cake the ballots, etc.,
would be placed and locked.
But Judge Cake was not satisfied with
this arrangement. He said the ballot
boxes should not be opene-5, and their con
tents removed, but instead the " boxes
ought to be sealed and then put into tbo
Clerk Holmes contended that there was
no room In the vault for SO ballot boxes,
and that the law does not provide that
the method advocated by Judge Cake
should be pursued. He explained that
formerly the election returns and "ballots
were kept 'In large wooden boxes and
locked up, and the boxes were placed In
the vault. Judge Shattuck had ordered
this done. Prior to that time, any sorjt. of
boxes were used. The new closets, with
the steel doors, were much of an Im
provement. "But," insisted Judge Cake, "you hava
the key, and what Is to prevent the
ballots from being taken out and changes
made? While I know you would not do
anything of the kind, and do not mean
even to Insinuate such a thing. I think
you owe it to yourself to seal the boxes,
and I do not think they should be
Mr. Holmes answered that he was will
ing to do whatever was right and proper,
and would follow the practice of remov
ing the contents from the boxes and put
ting them away". There was nothing In
the law to the contrary. The packages
were sealed and In envelopes. "As far as
the boxes are concerned," said the Clerk,
"I have the keys to the "boxes, and any
one can open one of these boxes; It Is
easy enough to get a. duplicate "keyT
The Clerk finally suggested that ho
would seal the steel doors to the closets,
and this has been done.
The returns are all In, and the official
count will be commenced Friday morning.
Justices Kraemer and Vreoland will can
vass the returns with the County Clerk.
Mr. Holmes. In taking the steps he has.
bad no idea. In mind other than to make
the most secure and safe disposition of
the Ballots and tally sheets possible, and
is certain that he has done so by plac
ing them behind two steel doors and
double locks. They are In a better place
than ever before, and are stored as se
curely as wills, bonds, probate records and
all other Important documents In this
office. The statute upon the subject pro
vides: "One of the tally sheets, the poll book,
which was kept by the second clerk, the
ballots and stubs, and the ballot boxes,
shall be forthwith conveyed by one ol
the judges or clerks of the election ta
the County Clerk of the county. The T2
malnlng tally sheet and poll book, inclosed
In an envelope and cover, and sealed se
curely, as aforesaid, and addressed and
Indorsed on the outside so the same can
be identified, shall be forthwith deposited
with one of the judges not of the same
political party as the judge or clerk who
conveys the duplicates to the County
Clerk, to be kept by him safely subject
to the control of the court."
This is the only law bearing upon tho
case, and there is nothing said concerning
how the clerk shall take care of the re
turns. Another section of the statute provldej
for the opening of the returns and mak
ing abstracts of votes on the 10th day
after the election, or sooner If the returns
are all in.
ROUGH ON "EASY" STRANGERS
HHCIcmen at Union Depot Marie Them
for Their Orra.
Occasionally a stranger from tho In
terior gets bewildered on emerging from
tho Grand Central station In Portland,
and hearing the cries of "Free "bus,"
"Carriage," "Carriage." etc.. from the
long line of runners he has to pass
through, and he sometimes pays for his
experience, as the carrlagos will charge
him $1 ar hour, while tho 'busses will
carry him free. A few days ago a rural
couple were about to enter a free 'bus
when a rustling hackdrlver said:
"Come right along with me, "Uncle. Til
take you up all right."
"Well, Matilda, let's go with this gen
tleman; he's got a nice rig," said the
etranger, and so they rode in the carriage
to the hotel. Then they concluded they
would return by the same vehicle to the
station to see about their baggage, and
after that they rode out to the City Park,
as the drjver seemed so friendly. The old
gentleman was ''knocked off the Christ
mas tree." as It were, when a bill for
$10 was presented In the evening.
Testerday an Eastern Oregon man, who
had "been there before," emerged from
the station and asked an expressman how
far it was to Arthur street, in South
Pqrtlacd, and where he should board a
slreet car to get there. "Oh, you'd have
to walk a .mile and a half before you could
strike the right car," the expressman said,
"and then you would have to transfer
four times. I'll take you right up." The
traveler was not so green as he looked,
however, and he boarded the right car
within three blocks of the station.
Strangers run the same risk In Port
land that they do In all large cities, and
they should make Inquiries of the depot
officials or of the nearest police officer
when In doubt.

SHEEP WAR THREATENED.
Farmer Reports a Grave Situation
at Xionsr Creelc
James Leach, a Lexington, Or., farmer,
was In Portland yesterday on his way to
visit his old home at Harrlsburg. He has
just made a trip through the John Day
and Long Creek localities, and says grass
was never so abundant In the Blue Moun
tains as now. Sheep shearing Is just be
ing brought to a close In the Six-Shooter
region of Grant County, and the fleeces
are of unprecedented size and weight, no
breaks or weak spots being detected Jn
the long, clean fiber. Sheepshearersr al
though getting 7 cents a head and board
for their work this Spring, are not mak
ing as good wages as when the fleeces
were lighter and the pay was 5 or 6 cents,
as there Is so much more wool to handle.
A crew of 20 men now will hardly shear
1000 head per day, while If the fleeces were
lighter they would easily overrun this fig
ure. He looks for trouble between the Long
Creek stockmen and the Morrow County
sheepmen. If the latter persist In bringing
their flocks Into that portion of the John
Day "Valley this Summer or Fall. The
Lonp Creek men, he says, are organized
and have given notice In their local pa
pers that outside sheep will be kept out
at all hazards.
"And I hardly blame them," he con
tinued, "a some of the prairie sheepmen
have fenced In a lot of Government land
for "Winter range, and they keep out all
other stock. Of course, they own a good
deal of deeded land, but In fencing thia

new settler will add his influence to the
opposition that Is being organized against
