the Summer.
power in regard to the management, and
control of the construction of public Im
provements, whether those of the city
or individuals, is vested in the Board of
Public Works. The board accordingly
passed a resolution referring the opinion
to the City Council, with the request
that action on the matter be deferred.
A communication was read from W. M.
Whldden, on the desirability of adopting
the same system for sprinkling the road
of the Portland City & Oregon Railway in
the city limits that is in vogue on the
other street railways. A letter was read
from General Manager Hurlburt, of the
road, making a proposal to the city to
water the streets in the city limits from
Madison to the Crematory, with an elec
tric sprinkler, provided the city will bear
half the gross cost of $250 a month. This
was referred to the committee on street
cleaning.
Contracts were awarded to the lowest
bidders for the following repairs and ma
terials: Sewer in East Taylor street,
John Bays, $910; sewer in East Morris
street, J. B. Siemmons, $S9 72; asphalt
repairs, Trinidad Asphalt Company, $1 SO
per square yard, total, $1231 20; wooden
block repairs, J. R. O'Neil, 99 cents per

square yard, total $720.
SISTER MARY HEDWIDGE.
Death of
37
Noble Nan Who TattRht
Tears in Oregon.
The Board of Public Works decided, at
the meeting yesterday afternoon, to make
a vigorous effort to clean the streets be
fore the arrival of the Presidential party,
and to give the city during the Summer
season the best service it has ever had
in the sprinkling of the streets. Eight ex
tra men will be put on the force, and
new. equipment and an additional team
of iorses will be purchased.
The matter -came before the board in
the monthly report and estimates submit
ted by Superintendent Ferguson, of the !
street-cleaning department. This showed i
that the department has made a saving of I
$1967 55 since January 1 in Its regular
monthly allowance of $20S0 for labor. This, 1
'added to the balance in the fund, makes I
$4W7 55 available fof labor in cleaning J
the streets. In order to put the streets
in as good condition as possible. Super
intendent Ferguson recommended the
employment of eight Tnore men, at a
cost of $432. This the board allowed. To
place the department in effective shape to
do the sprinkling of the Summer, the
board approved Mr. Ferguson's recom
mendation for the purchase of a team of
horses. The repair and purchase of har
ness and hose to the value of $151 was
authorized, as well- as $21 for the pur
chase of additional tools for the new
men added to the department.
In the discussion that followed. Presi
dent. Mills outlined the plans of the board
Xof sprinkling the streets, and handling
the department. Mr. Mills said: "I have
had a long talk with Mr. Ferguson, and
he is very anxious, as we all are, to put
the streets in the best possible condition
for the visit of the President. We ,are
agreed that the best thing to do Is to
keen the men at work durinc the month

with the sprinkling done with the street
cars the total number of miles of streets

An opinion was received from City At

request of the board, on the question of

his intention to make a study of Oregon,
He will not be at a loss for tutors during
his short stay in Portland. J. W. Bailey,
State Food and Dairy Commissioner, will
make -a strong representation to the Sec
retary for modification of the proposed
Philippine tariff so aB to admit butter
into the islands free of duty, and put a
charge of 10 cents a pound on oleomar
garine and all other imitations of butter.
The schedules recommended by the Taft
Commission put a duty of 6 cents a
kilo of two and a fifth pounds on butter
and 5 cents a kilo on oleomargarine. The
differential Is only 1 cent a kilo, or a
little over half a cent a pound, In favor
of butter. Dairy Interests all over the
country have protested to the War De
partment against the discrimination,
which is clearly for the benefit of the
packing houses of the Mississippi Valley.
Commissioner Bailey has the support of
the butter manufacturers of Oregon in the
effort he will make with Secretary Wil
son In their behalf.
"I shall ask Secretary Wilson to use j
his Influence with the Administration to
have the duty on butter. Imitations in
creased -to 10 cents a pound," said Mr.
Bailey, yesterday. "The differential of
only half a cent a pound In favor of but
ter proposed - by the Taft tariff Is no
protection. Oleomargarine will stand
shipment to the tropics better than but
ter. It contains enough beef tallow to hold
It firm, and It will not lose Its flavor ori
the voyage. It can be manufactured to
stand in any climate. Oleomargarine can
be manufactured at low cost, and if it
Is admitted to the Philippines at almost
the same rate that butter pays, the but
ter manufacturers of the Pacific Coast
will not be able to do much business with
the islands. Butter should be put on the
free list."
W. Schulmerlch, one of the leading
creamery proprietors of Washington
County, Is heartily in favor of Commis
sioner Bailey's plan to interest Secretary
Wilson in the Philippine market.
"There are no two ways about it," said
Mr. Schulmerlch yesterday, "the Govern
ment must open the Asiatic markets for
the Pacific Coast dairy interests. Asia
Is our natural field. Our plants are In
creasing at a rapid rate, and we shall
soon be large exporters of butter. West
ern Oregon Is surely becoming the great
dairying region of the United States. Cost
of manufacture here Is cheaper than In
the East, because of the mild climate,,
and the abundance of green food. If
the Government will give us any kind of
a show In Asia we will get the business.
We simply must have markets, otherwise
there will be no way to dispose of our
surplus product."

because of Its superior condition and the
unfitness of Oregon onions to supply them.

business, the grower said, will decrease
the sale of Oregon onions.
A dealer who was questioned about the
matter replied that the statement was
false and ridiculous. Oregon onions are
soft and sprouting and very inferior at
present They have been shipped to San
Francisco, but to compare them with the
Australian product is absurd. This is the
Fall season vIn the Southern Hemisphere,
and the onions from Australia are solid
and green, and will keep in flrst-clas
condition for two months yet. The con
trast between them and Oregon product
is so marked that anybody could pick our
tho difference between the green and ripe
onions and the superiority of the former
over the Oregon. The Australian, in this
condition, are being shipped to Alaska
and to the East. Domestic onions, on the
other hand, the dealer said, are mani
festly unfit for such orders, because, al

Municipal Court yesterday with striking
R A Frame with an umbrella In the
Washington building on April 20. Mr.
Frame testified that he is a money brok
er, that he ha? known Mrs. Hart since
7 and that he has had financial deal
ings with her which ended In a dispute
beforr the courts. "She has hounded me
fi- yeare," went on the witness. "She
assaulted me over a month ago in the
Marqilam bulletins and on April 20 she
struck me with her umbrella, on the left
shoulder. I have- never threatened to
shoot her, and have not carried a gun
since the Civil War."
Mrs. Hart testified that Frame has be
hived badly toward her and has prom-1-ed
to marry her, when he knew that he
was already a married man. She told of
she had obtained .'.gainst
months from date, and on which pay
ments had been made from profits and
dividends arising from the stock. The
amount unpaid on April 1, 1901, Is said to
have been J1046 principal, and J25 interest.
It Is stated that on April 18 Hayes ten
