GIVE UP THEIR FIGHT
SHOWERS AND MACK WILI. MEET
WITH JUDGE CAKE.
They Can Outvote Him on Any Prop
osition That Cosies Up Steele
Appeals His Case.
Judge Cake yesterday Issued an order
that county business tvlll hereafter "be
transacted at the Courthouse, and a copy
of the same Trill he served upon all county
officials. It has already oeen served upon
the Clerk of the County Court, and tacked
Tip on the bulletin-board alongside of
Sheriff sale notices.
M. I. Pipes, attorney for W- B. Steele,
yesterday gave notice before Judges
Scars, Cleland and .Frazer that he -would
not file an answer in the quo "warranto
case, but would stand on the record as it
Is, and appeal to the Supreme Court
Commissioner Showers, speaking con
cerning the future course of himself and
Commissioner Mack, said: "We will meet
with Judge Cake. "We Are. up against it,
and there is nothing else to do."
Judge Cake states thai ae has not yet
called a meeting of the County Commis
sioners to sit with him in the transaction
of county business, but had spoken to
Mr.. Mack informally on the subject. The
new law provides that the Commissioners
shall meet at the call of the County Judge.
Some persons opine that the Judge may
begin to transact county business on his
own hook, without calling the Commis
sioners to take part with him. This, of
course, is mere conjecture. In joint ses
sion the two Commissioners, being' In the
minority, cam.'outvote the County Judge
on -any matter they see fit. The order
issued reads as follows:
In the County Court lor Multnomah County,
State of Oregon.
Whereas, The Circuit Court of the State of
Oregon for Multnomah Count has declared
valid and operative the law passed by tho
Legislative Assembly of the State of Oregon,
in 1901. relating to the transaction of county
business in "Multnomah County? and.
Whereas, County business has been hereto
fore transacted In the City. Hall of the City of
Portland. Multnomah County, Or.;
Now, therefore, it Is ordered that all county
business shall from and after this date be
performed and transacted In the County Court
house of Multnomah County. Oregon, either In
the chambers of said County Court or in the
courtroom thereof, as the necessities of the
case may require.
All persons and county officials will govern
W. M. CAKE, County Judge.
Dated April 10, 1001.
The rooms occupied by the Board of
County Commissioners at the City Hall
will be -vacated, and can be used as an ad
dition for the free museum if required.
"What will be done with the furniture and
carpets, is a matter for future considera
tion. It is stated that George Fawcett,
the County Commissioners bailiff, who
also attends generally to charity matters,
poor farm applications, etc, will be re
tained and given the grand jury witness-
room for an office. Pending bids for sup
plies -will be considered, and new specifi
cations may be ordered in some instances,
as those originally drafted are not suf
ficiently specific If this is done, new bids
will be called for.
WHAT CONGREGATIONALISM IS
Various Timely Topics Discussed at
the Portland. Meeting:.
The second day's work of the Portland
Association of Congregational Churches
was devoted to a discussion of Congre
gationalism, and to the church's mission
ary enterprises. Rev. M. D. Dunning
took the stand that the distinctive feature
of Congregationalism lies not in its re
ligious beliefs, for those beliefs are nearly
identical with those of one or two other
Protestant denominations. "There is no
universal Congregational creed," he said,
"each church making its own. Herein Is
seen the chief feature of Congregational
ism, the lull and complete liberty of the
individual church. No person can in any
way dictate to a Congregational church
in any of its affairs. This is the princi
ple of freedom applied in religious life,
the same is the chief underlying prln
clgle of our civil government Yet a
church may place emphasis upon this, and'
still not be a Congregational church. It
must share Its life and work in mutual
fellowship with other churches. This
Congregationalism is the application in
religious life of the principles of freedom
and union, .which we so highly cherish In
our civic life.'
D. D. Oliphant touched upon the need
of centralization. Rev. C. F. Clapp dis
cussed the question, "Ought Our Benevo
lent Societies to Be Federated?" He
showed that the Idea of federation grew
out of tne need of retrenchment
A general discussion .followed the read
ing of these papers, Rev. Mr. Blackburn,
in a lew pointed remarks calling atten
tion to the lack of centralization in the
Baptist denomination, and drawing a com
parison between the two churches in this
respect Rev. C. . Cllne then spoke of
the preponderance of centralization in the
Rev. F. E. Dell read a paper on "Tools
for the Cultivation of Fruits xf the
Spirit" He said: "A man may be a good
man, but a poor worker. It is not enough
that we get into the kingdom. We must
bring our sheaves with us. Prayer is
one of the greatest helps to Christian
fruitage A careful, intelligent study of
the Bible goes with prayer."
The business committee reported that
Hood River would be the place for the
next annual meeting. The time was
changed to the third Tuesday In April,
instead of the second Tuesday. Rev. F.
E. Dell and Rev. B. S. Winchester were
admitted to the association upon presen
tation of their credentials. Rev. Alexan
der Blackburn and Rev. C. E. Cllne, of
Pprtland, and Rev. E. L,' Bollinger, of
Oregon City, were invltea to sit as corre
At the afternoon session stirring. 10
mlnute. addresses were given on "Our
Missionary Enterprises," by Rev. J. J.
Staub, Rev. B. S. Winchester, George H.
Himes, Rev. D. B. Gray and Rev. R. A.
Rowley. These were followed by "The
Woman's Hour," the chair being filled
by Mrs. I, A. Parker, associatlonal presi
dent of the Women's Home and Foreign
Missionary Work. Her daughter, Mrs.
Lois W. Myers, read a .highly interesting
paper, written by Mrs. Parker, giving. a
history of missionary work In HawaiL
Mrs. Bertha Grimes sang a solo, Iead,
Kindly Light" and Mrs. B. S. Winchester
made an eloquent plea In behalf of more
close and personal relationship between
individual churches and the missions, ad
vising that each church, Instead of do
nating a sum to missions in general,
should devote the amount to the support
of their own missionary in some chosen
field. She read extracts from "The Stu
dents' Challenge to the Churches," by
Luther D. Wisnard, and explained the
student volunteer movement Rev. Mr.
Ackerman was of opinion that there might
be "grave danger to missionary work by
the attempt to bring about this closer and
morepersonal relationship between church
and mission; since the interest mISht be
come too local In character, not general
At the evening session the Rev. Ed
ward T. Ford of Tacoma, delivered an
address that dealt "with a vital topic in a
way that proved him to be a man of
brilliant Intellectual power, a keen stu
dent of the problems of the hour, and
closely in touch with the needs of practi
cal, plain, hard working humanity. Mr.
Ford may be called a new-comer in the
West as he has been In Tacoma only
about a -year. He halls from Massachu
setts, and is without doubt destined to
become one of the most potent factors In
church circles on this coast In addition
to his unusual mental gifts, rich culture
and convincing sincerity, he possesses a
forceful and attractive personality, to
gether with unstinted energy, and tie
advantage of being in the full freshness
and vigor of early manhood. His ad
dress dealth with "The Educational Func
tion of the Christian Pulpit" He con-
i trasted tha modern with the ancient
church, pointing out the advance that
had been made, and then proceeded In a
thoroughly honest and judicial spirit to
dissect the Christian pastor of today(,
making a critical study of him in his
relations to the world of affairs, and turn
ing the searchlight .full upon his failure
to reach the heart of the people. The
various .classes of men who are unwilling
to yield allegiance to the churches were
examined. Andit was shown that there
is a vast mass of surging, discontented
humanity, who accept Christ, but refuse
to accept the Church. And this distinc
tion between Christianity and the Church
Is constantly growing, day by day. "With
the great majority .the dally press. In the

he had made his home for 20 years, but was taken suddenly,, ULwlth,. sickness
that resulted in his death. Since an Illness three years ago from typhoid-pneumonia

LOOK AT LEO AND MARS.
Mrs. Altmnn Points Ont the Starry
Beauties Hove "Visible.
Thomas Carlyle once said: "Why did
not somebody teach me the stars and
make me at home In the starry heavens?"
A pathetic outburst from the great seer
and one that must have been wrung
from him on such a night as this, and
nights as are ours just now! Glowing
and scintillating are the great suns
above and about us, passing silently
along in their orderly precision and bring
ing to our hearts the message of God's
goodness and greatness.
Yet how many are familiar with this
"oldest picture-book in the Tvorld,' able
to trace its outlines (constellations) or
to place its heroes, for Into every star
have the ancients woven a fabric of
their imagination. Here you have the j
ayiuuuia ui an ei.eiiiu.1, ever-cnanging law
teeming with fancy and poetry. Why
then not lift ourselves from our prosaic
lives Into this sphere of, beauty, sym
metry and marvel?
Almost overhead is the glorious con
stellation Leo or the Lion, In the shape
of a sickle "with its dazzling white star,
Regulus, just on the ecliptic. This great
star is just now of supreme importance,
Mars being in its immediate neighbor
hood. .How many have noticed the bril
liant ruddy . planet's westward wander
ing since last month? It will be sta
tionary Just a little while and then
resume its natural course eastward, yet
remaining west of Regulus all this
month. Let your eyes pass westward of
Mars along or rather above the ecliptic
and note the beautiful twins, Castor and
Pollux, dwelling there in eternal friend
ship. Eastward of the Lion along the
great highway of the solar system, Is
the magnificent constellation (Virgo), the
Virgin, with its resplendent Spica, an
other nautical land, or rather, sky- J
mark. Nprth of Splca, high up from the
east glows the giant Arcturus, stupend
ous sun placed In depths of space un
fathomable. The Great Bear Is nearing
the point overhead and with its seven
brilliant stars Is known to all. It might
be Interesting to all to watch Its annual
mystic voyage (as visible to us at night)
around the steadfast North Star.
In the northwest glows the hrlght Ca
pella in the Charoten (Amlgu) and Per
seus, .the rescuer, with its famous vari
able star Algol (from the Arabian Al
gul, the demon) is dipping in the north
west. This Is, perhaps, the point of
greatest Interest to the .astronomical
world just now; in fact has 'been ever
since February 22, when a new star of
the first magnitude was discovered In
this constellation by Rev. T. D. Ander
son, and the electric wires flashed this
intelligence about the globe. Of this new
sun, Nora' Persel, more anon.

FOR A UNIVERSAL RELIGION
Ilev. JO. Fay Mills Says World Can
Unite on Practice o Goodness.
Another crowded audience greeted the
Rev, B. Fay Mills at his lecture last
evening-at the First Unitarian Church on
the topic "Can We Have a Universal
Religion?'' The speaker was1 Introduced
to the listeners by the Rev. I5r. Stephen
S. "Wise", who briefly compared the two
sects Which they represented: "Unltarlan
lsm "as a denial of the Trinity and Juda
ism as' an affirmation of the unity of
God, Each is more than a creeds ea'ch is
a-, spirit) a spiritual power working to
ward ,a higher end." The speaker of the
eyeninghe referred to as "the apostle of
truth, the truth of the universal religion,
the' apostle of the religion and reality
of the higher life."
Mr. Mills said In part: "As to the
Question1 of tho possibility of the universal
religion): I have not the slightest doubt.
Lt"Js' only a question of when and ho.w.
To establish it there are three possible
Ways: jFlm, by adopting one of the al
ready' existing religion's; second, by form
ing h combination of all the existing re
ligions;" third, by an entirely new form
of religious expression.
''Th& first of these Is manifestly impos
sible!" -No one is willing to look any fur.
thef thdn his own religion when seeking
to-adop't one for the world. Brahminipm,
Buddhism. Judaism and all the other
forms of religions-would be advocated by
their" rfdhercnts. -To most of us the ques
tion" would be the adoption of either Juda
ism" or" Christianity, and to the majority,
Christianity. But Christendom Is ,by no
means Christianized, and, as Joprph Cook
saidj tlio crying need of Christianity Is
the Ghrlstianlzatiop of Christendom..
Christianity will never be a universal re
ligion Ss We know it now. , . t
"The 'combination of all' religions could
be made pnly by the elimination of parts
of all' religions. Every one of us would"
bo prepared to give up a great deal
that Is of what the other people practice.
Every .religion differs as to its theblogy.
Its mythology, Its ritual, Its methods of
practlcei We all agree as .to the. ex
istence' of God, but differ as to our. Ideas
of-Go'diWhat we consider the mythology
of,'6he'relgion, the people of that re
ligion refuse so to believe. The believer in
the Orient tells the story of his water god
swlhlmlng 800 miles in five minutes.. When
we sihlle at that he says. 'And yet you
believe 'In your God- walking the water?'
The one Is no more mythological than
the other. Mythology has grown out of
us, andv will continue to do so for some
time to come. In our rituals, in our Ideas
as to the proper way to worship God.
we dlffe'r as people in different stated of
development are bound to do. There is
noJ hope for a universal religion frohi
the combination of existing religions.
"We need a new form of expression of
reljgldnthat will be universal. I be
lieve t'h"e human race has reached a de
velopment where this Is possible. The
old forms and mythology are perishing
The "old faiths are losing their hold of
the masses. They are ready to be led on
a search for a new religion, and the
world" is ready to give It forth. I be-
lfeve'that the world will produce a man"
to bring this about, Just as firmly as I De
neve that Buddha, Moses and Jesus arose
to, glyq .forth their religious .concepts when
the "world was ''ripe for tnem. I 'do not
believe' that this wllL be sudden, but that
It 'Is perfectly possible to imlte on the
essentia) elements of such a religion.
"'Andwhat Is this new relfglous con
cept?" As ProfeBsor Dolbear ha's said, the
time Is 'almost here when the world will
unite on the same foundation for a re
ligious belief: 'I believe In goodness, and
will4 so order my life.' We will unite
ujfpn the practice of goodness as the
practice- of religion. Then" we can see
God, God in goodness. So long as there
are-" people different In temperament, so
loiig'.wUl there be differences In religious
expression, but .all that is vital in the
question1 of religious observance Is that
there- shall be brought in -constructive
goodness. The greatest revelation of God
tha;.w can know is found In the prac
ticeJof'goodness as we know it. Devo
tion tp "good will bring all. There may
y'et be the descending God, the ascending
man.' "Then over allfhylll come a sweet,
perfect peace. Life and death will be
orio-gra'nd song. With one common re
ligion... we will Ibe one with G6d, one with
one" another, "with one thought and one
motivg,, 'Let us love.' This will be tho
life; .eternal. Anger and hatred will die.
sprrbw'and death will cease. Then will
qo'mjq vpeace on earth; good will toward

se'riesthls evening is "Why I Am a Uni
tarian:" EXCITED OVER OIL.
Residents o the Sandy Centering
.Interest Aronnd Watson's Well. '
.Thoinas McManus, a well-known farm
er a"t Rockwood, who was seriously ln
jufedlseveral weeks ago, was In the city
yesterday. He has recovered. He says
there,, is great excitement among the
farmers over the oil prospects. A great
'rnanyupf them seem to think there is
no doubt but that great wealth la within

Interest centers around the well .now
being .sunk by the Watson Company
east-of, the Sandy, and If oil is struck,
as "" Is.; Jconfldently expected, there will
be. .a - great boom In that district, and
