tiasl-lnfonned strawberry growers near
Portland said yesterday: "Tlie strawberry
aiarket is as low as It -nill get this sea
eon. Good fresh stock will not be sold
ior less than 4 cents wholesale. The grow
ers have made a. stand on that price. The
new cannery offers to pay 3 to 34, cents
POT counted bOX. SO the mnrlrnt -oro
cleaned up cf all the surplus. The good
canning berries are now pact their prime.
The popular "HTiteons will be out of the
market in less than a week, and the name
can be said of the ever favorite Clark's
seedling. None could be bought on the
market yesterday morning, unless the price
offered was over 4 cents. The growers had
all the Clark orders they could fill, and
not enough borrieF. The Magoon will b

usually lasts a month, and will end in
(about a week. There txe only about
two-thirds as many growers on the mar

of Commerce building, at which all sub
committees will be announced. Already
$3000 has been subscribed towards mak
ing this patriotic move a success, and
money is still coming In, so that the fund
prohably will reach upwards of $4000.
Never before has there been such good
prospects for a grand celebration. Tho
Idea, so far as has been arranged, is to
pive band concerts In three different parts
of the city on the evening of the 3d.

and Portland Traction Company worked
all last night putting In a double crow
ing at the Intersection of Fifth and Mor-
1 rison streets. The old ironwork was all
removed, and a strong foundation of stc-el
eye-beams put In, making the crossing
stronger than ever before. The cement
pavement will be laid today, and teams
will have to be driven around the Im
provement until this hardens. The cross

please take Mount Tabor car, and aek

Will Not Ask a Recount Early yes
terday morning Major Storey made tho
announcement that he would probably
ask for a recount. Last evening he talked
otherwise, saying that the reports of bad
counting "were unfounded, and that wher
ever ho went he found the election judges
I1 extremely courteous and faithfully and
honestly performing their duty. The ex
tent of Rowe's majority is no doubt re
sponsible for the change In his opinion re
garding the honesty of the Judges.
Another Hold - Up. Fred Simonton,
who resides at 626 Belmont street, was
held up near the corner of East Thir
teenth and Belmont streets last night at
11.30 and robbed of 522 and a gold watch.
There was but one robber In sight, and
he slipped out from behind a tree as Mr.
Simonton was going by. Then, covering
his victim with a revolver, he ordered
him to "hand over his valuables. The out
law wore no mask, but selected a dark
portion of the street for his deed.

Killed bt x Loo Chain. George Stat
ler, an employe In Benson's logging camp
at Bunker Hill, was accidentally killed
about 2 P. -M. Tuesday. A heavy log was
being hauled out to the road by a donkey
engine, -when the "butt chain," the chain
with hooks attached, by which the log
Is pulled, broke, and a piece of the chain
with one of the hooks was hurled through
the air with great force and struck Sut
ler, who was acting as signal man at the
time. No ono saw the chain strike him.
but he was heard groaning and was found
in the brueh at once, and the chain was
found some 25 feet back of him. He
lived only a few minutes after the acci
dent. He was able to talk when picked
up, and said he had been struck by the
wire cable, evidently supposing that It
was the cable Instead of the "butt chain"
which broke. The body showed but few
bruises, the chain having apparently
struck him on the chest. Just below the
heart, and on the arm. Statlers home
was near Clatskanle. He was an unmar
ried man, about 30 years of age.
Should Be Sown in the Fall. J. M.
Turner, of Portland, -who Is Interested In
the growth of flaxseed In Eastern Oregon,
says the outlook for a good crop In Mor
row County is splendid this year, and
that he looks for flaxralsing to become a
permanent Industry there. Last year the
crop did not come up to expectations, on
account of the lack of moisture in tho
early Summer, he says, but farmers are
learning that flax can stand dry weather
better than wheat: "Crops must be plant
ed In tho 'Fall, however," he says, "as
no dependence can be placed In Spring
sowing. Nature sows its grass eeeds In
the Fall, and man must follow suit, so
as to take advantage of all the moisture
that falls. The flax fields in the neigh
borhood of lone now present a flourishing
appearance, though the Spring-sown wheat
in that vicinity begins to show signs ol
suffering for rain. The flax will yield
well, no matter how the weather turns
out, which shows that it needs less mois
ture than the larger grains."
Runawat Bot. Portland police have
been requested to keep their eyes peeled
for Leslie Conger, a runaway lad of 14
years, whose home Is at Castle Rock,
Wash. Leslie had evidently been reading
dime novels or yellow newepapers, as he
provided himself with a revolver before
starting out. He wore a white cloth
hat, gray coat, bib overalls and grain
leather shoes when he left his parental
homo to see the great world, and Is sup
posed to have come to Portland. J. K.
Conger, the father of the boy, is In Port
land, and offers a reward for his recovery
and return to the police.
Mant Delicacies in Market. The fast
train service between Portland and the
Atlantic Coast enables the markets here
to provide supplies of all kinds of Eastern
delicacies in good condition. Even the
tender and succulent soft-shell crab comfes
all the way from Crissfield, Md., arriv
ing here as lively as" a cricket, and as
full of fight as ever. The market has
been constantly supplied with these dain
ties of late, and they find a ready sale.
Frogs' legs, terrapin, etc, can be sup
plied here as well as In New York, and
all who can afford It can Uvo "high."
Past Election Sentences. In the Mu
nicipal Court yesterday Charles A. How
ard was found guilty of larceny In steal
ing a pair of shoes from S. L. Scott, at
the Scandla House, and sentenced to Uo
months In the county jail. Mike Dono
van and Tom Edwards were sentenced to
two weeks each for trespassing on tne
proprietor of the same place. Wood al
cohol and election beer are supposed to
be prime causes of the trouble.
Small Fire. FIro caught in the roof
of a small frame building, 25 Second street,
yesterday at 12:25 P. M, and an alarm
was turned In from box 142. Tho prem
ises were occupied by Huey, Kee & Co.,

started from a defective flue. The depart
ment distinguished the flames with a
chemical. Total damage, $25.

DONE BY CITY COUNCIL
"SOLID SIX" MANAGE TO GITT IX
OJfE MORE VOTE.
They Sustained Mayor Storey's Veto
of an Ordinance One Useless
Street Ordered Vacated.
The meeting of the Common Council
yesterday was a very pleasant one.
Everybody seemed pleased that the elec
tion was over, and even the Mayor, who
missed his spring for re-election, was
happy over the good run he made, and
Jokingly asked If he could not take his
chair home, so that he might sit In it
as much as possible for the remainder
of the month.
The Mayor's veto of an ordinance au
thorizing the Council to appoint an ex
pert to Investigate the books of the City
Treasurer and Auditor was sustained.
After quite a lengthy discussion. It was
decided to vacate Watson street, a short,
unoponed street In the North End. Per
mission was granted bicyclists to riae
on a portion of the west sidewalk of Mil
waukle street An Invitation was ex
tended to the Councllmen-elect to be
present at the next meeting of the Coun
cil. Last Vote of "Solid Six.'
Mayor Sjorey returned an ordinance au
thorizing the Council to appoint an ex
pert to Investigate tho books and ac
counts of the City Treasurer and Audit
or without his approval. His reason fcr
this was that the charter empowered the
Mayor to appoint one or more experts
as often as he sees fit for this purpose,
and as he has appointed William R.
McKenzle to perform the services re
quired, he saw no need for another ex
pert and thought the money could be put
to better use. Tho question being. "Shan
the ordinance become a law notwith
standing the veto of the Mayor?" a vote
was taken an dthe veto was sustained,
by ayes 5. noes . This, some one re
marked, was probably the- last official
action of the "solid six."
Vacation of Watson Street Ordered.
The matter of a petition for the vaca
tion of Watson street which had been
set for hearing at this time, was taken
up on motion of Hanson. The street In
cludes some six or seven lots, and the
Hand Manufacturing Company asked to
have it vacated on the ground that it had
never been opened and nev would be.
Every legal requirement in the matter
having been complied with, and no ob
jection to the vacation haxing been filed,
those present who were in favor of the
vacation were given permission to speak
on the subject
E. B. McFarland set forth that the
street was of no use to any one and was
not likely ever to be. The Mayor called
President Jameson to the chair, and. hav
ing been granted permission to address
the meeting, made a strong argument In
favor of the vacation of the street. R.
W. Montague, representing the manu
facturing company, who desired the va
cation, spoke In their Interests. Baker
srongly favored the vacation of tho street
on the ground that it would be better
to have It covered with factories than
lying vacant and idle. D. M. Dunne
also favored the vacatlorf. The only op
position to the measure was offered by
Jameson and Martin, and after quite
a lengthy discussion an ordinance de
claring Watson street vacated was In
troduced and passed, by a vote of 7 ayes,
Jameson and Martin voting no.

vacation of Verateeg street. It was or

FROM MR. MOORES.
He Deplores DIssenslOBS and Pleads
OREGON CTrr, June 8. (To the Edit
or.) To correct certain inferences con
tained In comments made upon an article
written by me and appearing in your
columns a few days ago, I ask a few lines
to open up what Is properly "a closed.
Incident," and to deal with a matter
that Is of little public Importance, and
largely personal to myself. A consider
able experience in politics has made me
indffferent to pftrsonal abuse, but I do
wince at any suggestion that I am in
viting Invidious comparisons, or posing
as the only really good boy in the Fed
eral brigade. The political martyr and
tho political hero is very often nothing
but a political demagogue. I am not
called upon to explain, tho appearance
of tho handsome chromo which headed my
artlcple, as the most unsparing critic will
hold mo guiltless of having procured
its publication. That letter found Its
inspiration In the defiant and jubilant
boast to his political fellows of a rabid
Democratic Portland politician, who ah
hors imperialism and hates Republican
Ism as the devil hates holy water, that
the result In Portland -would be such a
to make McKlnley sick and make Bryan
and the Democratic politicians of the
East extremely happy.
The average Republican respects the
slncera Populist and the sincere Demo
crat but he always feels sad when any
thing happens that contributes to their
political happiness. The much-abused
Federal office-holder has a great many
human attributes, and many of the in
firmities that are common to all man
kind. In a political sense. hB Is simply
an American citizen, who has all the
rights and prerogative? of American citl
zonship. The members of the Oregon
delegation, from whom my appointment
came, received and exacted no pledges
of any kind save the Implied pledge that
I would discharge the duties of tho place
to the best of my abilities. They havo
not attempted In any way, at any time.
to dictate what political course I should
pursue. The fact that In the recent elec
tion the Republican ticket was regularly
nominated, and that It was claimed :o
have the support of the great majority
of the Republicans of Multnomah Coun
ty, enlisted for It the sympathy of Re
publicans elsewhere. The fact that It re
quired the assistance of the Democrats
and Populists in the county to defeat
even a portion of it tends to confirm
this sentiment. And confirms me In the
conclusion that I expressed in my recent
letter. Republicans of the "cow coun
ties" cannot be presumed to understand
all of the Influences which have operated
to alienate a large section of the Repub
lican vote. They are Interested, how
ever. In the success of Republican prin
ciples, and they wish somfthing dine to
end, if possible, the distracting strife
which has torn the party asunder for so
Any man who does not realize that
there is to be muslo in the next Legisla
ture is the most optimistic of optimists.
The suggestion contained in your lead
ing editorial of this morning's issue- that
the warring factions can only be paci
fied and brought together by a concilia
tory course is one that should be acted
upen by the Republican party if It ex
pects longer to do business in this state.
