City Officers Are Going After
MANDAMUS PROCEEDINGS BEGUN
pemond Is Made That vtke Assessor
Return Valuation of $40,000,000
for City Property.
The City of Portland yesterday filed a
mandamus proceeding against Assessor
Greenleaf for the purpose of obtaining
a decision from the courts on the ques
tion of the authority of the Assessor to
fix values of city property as he pleases,
and as a result place the Various depart
ments of the city in an impoverished
condition. X&st year Assessor Greenleaf
reduced the assessed value of city real
estate from $40,X),K to $25,000,000, and
has announced that this year the total
valuation will be $33,000,00 in round num
-hrs Rfinsr restricted to a total tax levy
of 8 mills for all purposes by the city

caused a great decrease in the revenue,
and the funds of the police, Are and other
departments have been for some time en
tirely exhausted, to the great worry and
annoyance of those having them ""in
charge. To prevent a repetition of past
events, Mayor Howe and the judiciary
committee of the Common Council de
cided upon this course and the papers
w,ere filed In the State Circuit Court yes
terday by City Attorney Long.
The petition demands that the Asses
sor make his assessment of the property
at not less than $40,000,000, which it is al
leged to be worth on the basis of assess
ment. Accompanying the petition is a
mandate Issued by the Cleric of the Court
requiring the Assessor to return to the
County Cleric, immediately Tipon the re
ceipt of this writ, an assessment roll
with the full and complete assessment of
the taxable property within the city lim
its, including a full and proper descrip
tion of the lands and lots on March J,
1900, which description shall correspond
with the plat of town lots, and that such
lands and town lots shall be valued at
the true cash value, taking into consider
ation the improvements on the lands,
and that he return the assessment with
thp true value of all personal property
wUbln the""county liable for taxation, and
that the .property, real and personal, be
returned at the true cash value, which
the property -would sell for at voluntary
tale, in the ordinary course of business.
Xhe mandate also states:
"You are farther ordered and directed
to assess and return upon the assessment
roll the $10,000,000 worth of personal prop
erty which you have lcnowinirly, will
fully and Improperly failed and neglected
to assess in any sum and that you return
your assessment In the sum of $40,000,000
or show cause before this court Novem
ber 3, at 9:20 o'clock. A. M.. before Judge
George, why you have not done so."
The petition filed reviews the various
departments of the city government, and
recites -section 1 of the charter, .which
provides for the distribution of the 8
mills tax levy, as follows:
Tor street lighting V&
For lire department 2
For police department 191
For street repairs 4
For Interest on bonded indebtedness.. 2
It is alleged that on January 1, 1901, the
Board of Police Commissioners will esti
mate that $76,003 will be required for the
department for the year, and that this
sum will not be sufficient to furnish the
city with adequate, police protection, and
ls not enough for that purpose, and it is
reasonably necessary to liave $86,000.
"For the ,flre department, it 4s stated that
$90,000 will be necessary 'for the year, and
for street lighting not less than $60,000.
Assessor Greenleaf, it Is alleged, is
abput to Teturn an assessment of about
$33,000,000 on the property within the City
of Portland, and the value of the real
estate Is said to be greatly in excess of
$0,000,000, and the personal property, It Is
asserted, would sell in the course of busi
ness for much more than $20,000,000, mak
ing the true value of all property for
TKblch it would sell at voluntary sale over
Notwithstanding this fact, it is alleged
that the Assessor, knowingly, willfully,
falsely, carelessly and negligently, will
Teturn an assessment at less than $30,
000,000. It is further charged that Assessor
Greenleaf has lmowingly, willfully and
purposely failed and neglected to assess
a large amount of personal property
within the city at its fair cash value, or
any sum whatsoever, to the extent of In
excess of $12,000,000.
In conclusion It Is stated that if Green
leaf is allowed to-return the assessment
for $30,000,000, It will be necessary for the
city to discharge the police and fire de
partments, and It Is alleged, that there is
no other means of raising money for
these departments except by taxation.

FIRE Iff A T'RAME RANGE.
Damage of $5000 -to Stores and Con
tents at Sixth and 3Iorrison.
Prompt and effective action by the fire
department last evening averted a dan
gerous conflagration in the frame range
at Sixth and Morrison streets, at 9 o'clock,
and kept the total damage down to about
$5000. The ilre was discovered by the
smoke, which -spread through all the
small buildings and betrayed the smold
ering flames that were spreading in the
basement of Q. "W. Jblls' candy store.
When the Are was first located In the
rear basement of Jolla store, a hand
grenade could have extinguished the
flames, but in the excitement and con
fusion of spreading ana turning in the
alarm no one of sufficient presence of
mind was found to direct the work, and
the smoke which was rushing out rapidly
soon made independent operations dan
gerous. When the Are department arrived on
the scene at 9 o'clock the flames had
burst through the rear end of the store
iiTifl -wflrA ollmblnir Ttinldlv to thft roofs
and were cllmblns rapidly to the roofs
of the buildings and threatening: the half
a dozen small stores -clustered on the
corner. With the flro department came
the police patrol wagon and a detail of
policemen, under Sergeant Moore, which
did effective work in keeping: back the
throngs of sightseers which soon gath
ered. Hopes were put up and the spec
tators lined the sidewalks of Sixth and
Morrison, while in the postomce yard
they crowded the b-anks like the sloping
sides of an amphitheater.
Chief Campbell soon had five streams of
water with which to drown out the fire.
The companies of engines 1, 3 and 4,
tracks 1 and 2, hose companies 1 and 2,
and chemical engines 1 and 2 were soon
at work In the nooks and crannies of
the building, in the thick of the over
powering smoke. The flames bursting
through the roof and attacking, the rear
of all the buildings were soon put out.
Then the firemen commenced, fighting the
Are in the basement, pouring down iour
streams of water Into the maze of little
apartments partitioned off, from all of
which smoke and flames were Issuing.
An (hour's hard work underneath, drowned
out every vestige of the flre, which was
difficult to locite and handle.
The cause of the flre is unknown. In
Jolls' basement there were no stoves or
other beating apparatus that might have
scattered flames. Once started it was fed
on an abundant supply of wood and in
flammable materials. '
G. "W- Jolls suffered the heaviest loss.
His store was stocked up with Christmas
goods and these were greatly damaged.
The basement, where some goods and
fixtures were stored, was completely
flooded, and the ground floor wrecked by
the Inpourlng streams of water. His loss
will be between $3000 and $4000, only $1000
of which la covered by insurance. All
the other stores were slightly damaged
by water and fire, covered completely
by Insurance. Sllter's cafe, Harris tailor
shop, Uncle Henry's pawnshop, the Blue
Point Oyster House, the Opera-House
Buffet, were all flooded with water, but
the damage will not exceed $350. On Mor
rison street Klriywa's Japanese store was
burned out In the basement; damage fully
covered by Insurance- Burns' photo

FOR WHIPPING A CHILD
PRINCIPAIi TDTTSEY, OF PORTS
MOUTH SCHOOIiJ ARRESTED.
Parents of the Child Assert That
Punishment "Was Unnecessarily
Severe-JTousey's Side of It.
For chastising an 8-year-old boy in the
due course of his profesional duties,
Principal Jay L. Tousey, of the Ports
mouth School, is mider arrest. Yesterday
he was served with a warrant sworn out
by Charles Smith, a brakeman on the
Southern Pacific Railroad, and the father
of the boy chastised. Principal Tousey
is charged with assault and battery, and
when the case comes up for triaWn the
Municipal Court, the black and blue
stripes on the boy's thigh will be offered
up as evidence that the whipping was
brutal and severe. That the boy was
whipped in a sound fashion there is no
doubt, but there are two sldea to the
Last Thursday, so the complaints state,
young -Smith, who is a pupil In Mrs.
Hoye's room at the Portsmouth Schoo',
was detained after hours for'punishment
by the principal.. Then Principal iou
sey is said to have inflicted at most se
vere and brutal whipping with a heavy
strap, HheN marks of "'which the boy now
carries with him. The parents are not
averse to maintaining discipline in tne
schools, but they object to the manner
in which their boy. was punished. Ac
cording to their account, not only was
the boy whipped until he cried, but'.-J
was whipped again afterward, and then
for the third time.. The father called the
attention of the matter to Directors
Williams "andBeach, of the School Board,
but no official-action was taken, the case
was referred tovthe District Attorney and
a complaint drawn up.
City Superintendent RIgler was Inter
rogated as toxthe facts in the case Inst
evening, and made the following state
ment in defense of Principal Tousey:
"Principal Tousey whipped the Smith
boy, but did It at the instance of Ills moth
er, who wrote him a note requesting that
tho boy be punished for his tardiness In
getting to school.. The boy isnot what Is
called a bad boy, but he was habitually
careless about getting to school on time,
and his mother desired him punished.
Professor Tousey administered the punlsh
inent, which -was not in his opinion ex
cessively severe. I was with Directors
Beach and Williams when his father and
the boy called. The boy has two black
and blue marks on his thigh, but they
are not serious and would not affect the
taov's health in any way whatsoever. lie
seems to have a very thin, sensitive skin
and tho whipping left markings which ap
pear unusually severe. In his remark
to Directors Beach and Williams, the fa
ther did not prefer any charges qgainst
Principal Tousey, and there was no occa
sion for an investigation, and we thought
the matter would be dropped. In addition
to appearing tardy, the boy gave as an
excuse that his mother kept him at' homo

New Directors Elected and Vievrs of
A meeting of the Manufacturers' Association-1
of the Northwest was held at
Allsky's Hall last evening, President E
H. Kllham presiding, and some 40 mem
, The following Board of Directors was
elected for the next three years:
Charles Coopey, of Charles Coopey &

Company; T. B. Kay, of Salem Woolen.

Secretary Mclsaac read a report for the
year, specifying, the work done by the as
sociation, and particularly referring to
tWe Portland Canning- Company and the
"Doernbecher Furniture Company, whom
thevassociation. was Instrumental in se
curing.' The affairs of the association aro
in goodXshape. - . .
Speeches were made by a' number of
the members, Including some from coun
try towns, which, as might be expected
from business men, were brief and to
the point. All advocated the necessity of
aiding each other by speaking a good
word "for Oregon manufactures 01 an
kinds when opportunity offered.
C. W. Hodson, of the Irwin-Hodson
Company, gave an, interesting account of
his tour through all the states in the
Union, except five, la'st Summer, and of
his investigations Into the manufacturing
business everywhere he went. , He said it
costs more to manufacture here because
they paid more for labor, factories were
better, and better equipped, and they
treated their employes better, but all
their expenditures onv these lines came
back -to them a th,ousand-fold, and he
concluded by saying the strip of country
known as. Eastern. Oregon and Washing
ton was the only place lie had seen in
some 15,000 miles of travel that' was fit
to live in.
."The Man Prom Mexico" at the Mar-
Georgo C. Boniface, Jr., in "The Man
From Mexico," in the character of Fltz
how, made famous by WUHe Collier, high
ly pleased a large crowd of the amusement-lovers
of Portland last night at tho
Marquam Theater. Boniface proved him
self a comedian of more than ordinary
ability, with a ready grasp of tho ridicu
lous, with a few funny little mannerisms,
and with a keen sense of humor that is
most infectious. His prison scene in the
second act- was a very laughable half
hour. His graphic description of the fake
bullfight, wiiereln tho bull "ran second,"
and the 'Mexican dance, In the last act,
further emphasized his versatility.
Boniface was well seconded In the fun
makin:r by F W, Bernard, who charac
terized Colonel Majors, the man, who,
from the beginning, was the cause ot all
the trouble by his" Inordinate desire to
help his friends out of scrapes. Bernard's
work was consistently good throughout.

"A Yonng" Wife."
One of the latest New York successes
is the' dramatic play "A Young Wife,"
r which will be seen here Sunday, Novem
ber 4, at the Metropolitan. It had a long
run last season at the Fourteenth-street
.Theater, New York, and will be present
ed here with a great cast, Including
Frank Tannehill, Jr. The first act shows
the library of Judson Douglass, the Naw
York banker, where a rohbery 13 com
mitted by his son Hubert, who years be
fore had been discarded by his father.
In the effort of the son to escape with
h-s bootv. he kills his father. The mur
der Is discovered by Ethel, the yourg
wife of Clarence Douglass, an 'adopted
son. Evidence points to the joung wife
as the murderess. The second act shows
a den of thieves in the slums In iiie
neighborhood of the Bowery, where Hu
bert and his associates are having a de
Hnno.h. Throueh a trick Ethel Is Induced
.to enter the den, but escapes, very clev-
erlv. The third act takes place in tno
'Douglass mansion. Here there is an ex
citing 'scene between a detective who be
lieves Ethel is guilty, tne nusoana auu
his young wife. In the fourth and last
act the young wife proves her innocence,
the real murderer is discovered, and
everything ends happily. One of the best
entertainments may be expected of A
Lead, in John Day Conntry.
Elmer E. Cleaver, of Prairie City, says
that when a boy he often heard the story
told that over In the John Day country
somewhere the hunters and trappers
moulded their bullets of lead taken di
rectly from the ground. Ever since he
has been operating In Eastern Oregon
mines he has been trying to locate that
lead mine, but only two weeks since did
he get any 'clue to the vicinity In which
the ledge is situated.
At that time he was sitting one even
ing in a hotel In Prairlo City talking to
a pioneer, jollying him along and pumping
him the while. Finally he asked him If
he had, ever heard the story about mould
ing bullets from native lead. He had
never heard of It. But another oldtlmer,
sitting on the other dide of the store
reading a paper about the "dangerous
anarchist," Bryan, remarked that he had
never heard the story, but knew all about
the facts In the case, as he had fre
quently turned the simple trick himself
In the early days, when it cost -about 10
cents a pound to haul lead In from the
Columbia River trading post.
"I was passing by there the other day,"
he continued, "and kicked off a piece.
Here it is," and he drew from his pocket
a lump of metal, dulled by contact with
other articles, that comes as near being
pure lead as was ever taken from the
ground. The ledge is said to be three
feet thick and stands two feet above
the ground. . . .
