THE MORNING OREGONIAN, TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 1902. -
Members- Meet; to Discuss
SIDEWALK ORDINANCE FAVORED
Franchise of Oregon Water Power
&. Railway Company Will Meet
Opposition UnleK CltyRe
'. celvcs Remuneration
Eight members of the Common Council
held an Informal meeting yesterday after
noon and considered a number of import
ant .matters -which. tv111 come up at the
regular session tomorrow. Among these
were Councilman Rumelln'e sidewalk
ordinance, and a similar ordinance for th
East Side which will be proposed by
Councilman Sharkey, tho opening of the
last .span, of the. reconstructed portion of
ihe Madteon-streer bridge as a city street,
and" the application of the' Oregon "Water
Power & Railway Company for a fran
chise on East "Water street, from Haw
thorne avenue to East Burnside street.
All tho matters received indorsement ex
cept the franchise which some of the
Cbuncllmen said they would not vote for
or against until they had an opportunity
to study its provisions.
The Councilman present were President
Zimmerman and Jdtssrs. Albee, Rentier,
Cardwell, Flcgelr Rumelin, Sharkey and
Sigler. All had attended the usual meet
ings' of their committees, and, after ad
journment, they gathered in tho main
committee room of the City Hall and
talked over matters which are pending
before the Council. ?lr, Rumelin brought
up his sidewalk ordinance.
"When" I propose3"lt,?- ho said, "I
thought it would be. opposed by practical
ly all tho district that It covers. However,
nearly every citizen I have met says It Is
"just what he wanted. I .Intend to amend
it so that the names of Intersecting
streets will be placed In the concrete at
"You might amend it by making it ap
plicable to the East Side also," suggested
-Mr. Rumelin said that one or two per
sons were opposed to the ordinance. A
man asked him the other day when it
would take effect, and he eaid Thursday
morning. "Well," replied the man, T11
have 200 feet of board walk started be
fore that time."
Mr. Sharkey said that on the East Side
a man was laying 100 feet of plank walk
on a lot of old and decaying stringers.
Cement and brick walks, as provided by
Mr. Rumelln's ordinance, would be ac
ceptable to a majority of the people on
the East Side, and Mr. Bentley suggested
that he prepare a similar measure.
"I shall look over the territory tomor
row, 'and see where the walks are needed,
and I shall have the ordinance ready by
Wednesday," he replied.
"Go ahead," said Mr. Rumelin; "I'll
support yours just as I will my own."
Mr; Sharkey will frame an ordinance
similar to Mr. Rumelin's in that he will
select the greater portion of the business
and residence districts and exempt prop
erty where a filling of more than two
feet may be required.
Wnnt City Street Extended.
The advantage to the county which
would result from the conversion of the
last eastern span of the Madison-street
bridge into a city street was spoken of
toy Mr. Bentley, in behalf of Burpee &
O'Reilly, who own property on the water
front north of the bridge. The burned
spans had been replaced by a temporary
structure, and the new wharf line runs
to the second span. The new truss stands
six feet within the property line, and tbr
employes of the docks to be erected will
have to drive around It. The matter was
very important, as the. Oregon Water
Power & Railway Company Intend to
build extensive shops. Neither the com
pany nor Burpee & O'Reilly wanted the
truss in the middle of the street, and he
r suggested that a resolution be adopted by
- the Council and forwarded to the County
In the opinion of the Councllmen the
county had nothing to lose and everything
to gain by placing the span six feet or
more from the property line. At present
the county must pay for the improvement
of the roadway up to Water street, and
if it were made a street the abutting
prcptrty-owners would ha'e to pay the
Water Street Franchise.
The application of the Oregon Water
Power & Railway Company for a' fran
chiseon Water .street,' from Hawthorns
avenue to Ea.vt Burnside street, was ir.ci
dentally mentioned, and Mr. Flegel said
he would, like to see a copy of the docu
ment. He "did not Intend to vote .for the
granting of a franchise of which he knew
There, was an intimation, that the com-,
pany- might hold the franchise until it
became valuable, and. Mr. .igicrt 'said h
was not in favor of granting it.
"But the property-owners want it,"
remonstrated Mr. Sharkey.
"Don't care if they do," -was the reply.
'The city must jjet something out of the
franchise, or I won't yote for it.7
Mr.Bentley said the company would fill
In a portion of the roadway over which
the franchise is asked, and the officers
had said they would haul 100,000 yards of
dirt and sell it to the city at 12 cents
per yard forOuse ln'-filling streets in other
"jTow," said Mr. Rumelin, who had been
listening to the conversation, "I want to
tell you that years ago the city of East
Portland granted .a franchise" to the Gen
eral Electric Company "to operate a rail
way,, on that street!'"
"We might .revoke lhat franchise," said
There did not appear to be any doubt in
the minds of the Councllmen that the
franchise could be revoked, .as the rail
way had never "been built. Mr. Bentley.
said the operation of even one car did not
constitute a railway, and other Council
men 'said the City & Suburban had not
given service on Its Second-street line for
nearly a year.
Mr. Flegel changed the subject by stat
ing that the time for the Southern Pacific
to. begin the improvement of Its portion
of Fourth street had nearly expired, and
no- work had been done. The company
was to lay flanged rails and repair the
pavement between Ana outside the tracks.
An extension of six months had been
granted it by the preceding Council and
the tlmo was nearing an end. The matter
will probably ba taken up at the meeting
of the Council.
PATIENT'S NARROW ESCAPE
Philip Roerti Becomes Insensible
and Undertaker Is Culled.
Philip Roerti, an Italian who was re
cently seriously" injured by an explosion
in a quarry In the State of Washington
June -22, had a-narrow escape last night
at St. Vincent's-Hospital sanitarium from
being handed over to an undertaker for
Yesterday was one of Roertl's bad days,
and his brother -was with him. Suddenly
the 'patient became afflicted with a bad
case of lockjaw, and ultimately became
Insensible. For some time the physicians
could not arouse him, although they tried
every means to do so. At one period he
appeared to have passed away, and the
sick man's brother gave up all hope, and,
believing that Philip Roerti -was dead and
gone, he telephoned to an undertaker to
take away the body.
Some little time after this, when .the
.physicians; .were .still working with the
patient, the telephone bell rang, and the
undertaker's voice asked: "Ig that body
ready yet? I'm coming up with the
"What body?" asked the hospital at
"Why. he Is not dead yet. We have
hopes of saving him."
"What's that?" gasped the undertaker
through the phone. "Somebody told me
.that my services were wanted. Never
mind. I'm glad he's going to live."
In the meantime the sick man was
brought to his senses, and wag placed
back to bed, little dreaming, how nearly
he had escaped being placed In an under
DANGER OF ERUPTIONS.
So Cities Should A sain Be Bill It on
FORT DE FRANCE. Island of Marti
nique. July 10. (Correspondence of the
Associated Presa)-In an Interview to
day with a representative of the Asso
ciated Press, James A. Jaggar, Jr., as
sistant geologist to the United States
Geological Survey, who has been inves
tigating volcanic conditions in the West
"I have been fortunate in seeing a real
eruption before I go, and the eruption of
last night, July 9, seems to have been
a very characteristic one. Mount Pelee
has Impressed me as being much more
venomous looking than the Souffriere of
St. Vincent. The question has been con
stantly asked me, 'Do you not think it
Is finished now? Now, is not the danger
"I have always answered: 'The moun
tain at thlo moment appears calm and the
dust columns that one sees from time to
time are largely due to landslides from
the crater into the head of Riviere
Blanche. The eruption of last night -was
to be expected. We may expect many
more before so hot and vigorous a steam
engine as Mount Pelee comes to rest.'
"A diagnosis of the real dlmlnishment
In activity can be made after the moun
tain has been watched a year and all its
movements recorded. After watching
events here since May 21 I do not think
a single habitation northwest of the line
from Bcllefontalne to Vive is safe to
live In at present. I do not think that
Carbet, Fonds-St. Denis, Morne-Rouge
or Basse-Point are safe at present. Not
that there is any immediate danger, but I
believe that the action of Mount Pelee Is
too uncertain for us to be assured that a
future eruption may not occur to "wind
ward. "The greater .part of destruction
wrought by the Souffriere In St. Vincent
was on the windward or eastern side, and
Mount Pelee is In many respects a twin
sister to the St. Vincent volcano. I gave
the same advice without hesitation at
St. Vincent, although the Souffriere there
was much quieter than at Mount Pelee.
I know well that causing people to movo
from all these villages and habitations
will produce great inconvenience, but the
alternative Is a risk of human life. When
the mountain is entirely cold and tho
people are protected by a properly
equipped experiment station, with devices
to signal danger, they may, with certain
restrictions, return to the volcanic lands.
No city should ever again, however, be
built on the northeast end of the island.
"I do not think that Fort de France
Is In any danger from the volcano. Most
of the towns In the West Indies are
equally in danger from tidal waves. It
would take an explosion from Mount Pelee
of enormously greater dimensions than
anything that has happened as yet to make
a wave which would harm Fort de France.
No evidence exists of augmenting violence
In the eruptions hitherto which would lead
to the supposition that a Kraktoa explo
sion Is coming here. In comparison Mount
Pelee is rather a small volcano. This is
all I can say about danger."
GREENE AND GAYNOR.
Discreditable Acts Are Many in the
Captain Carter Affair.
News comes from Washington that tho
case of Greene and Gaynor, whose extra
dition from Canada is sought by the
United States Government, Is to be made
the occasion of diplomatic correspondence
with the British Government. This Intro
duces a new phase of a long and remark
able conflict between the justice of the
nation and the power of money stolen
from It. Greene and Gaynor are contract
ors who conspired with Captain Carter,
now serving a term In Leavenworth mili
tary prison, to defraud the Government
in river and harbor work at Savannah.
They got more than .52.000,000 among them,
which they have been spending liberally
for the last three years In employing high
priced counsel, trying to corrupt the courts
and subsidizing newspapers to poison pub
Carter's trial attracted a deal of pub
lic attention, as much from the rarity of
corruption in the engineer corps as from
the powerful efforts made to clear him by
the use of money and social Influence. It
is probable that he could not be convicted
In any civil court, but the military court
brushed aside technicalities and took a
straight cut to Justice, and the Supreme
Court refused to consider an appeal. After
ahe criminal prosecution, the Government
began civil suit to recover the stolen
money, and this led to a remarkably Im
pudent attempt on the part of Carter's
relatives and friends, who are understood
to be custodians of It, to compound for
his release on the return of part of it.
The whole case has afforded the most
amazing example of the arrogance of rich
criminals ever seen in the history of
American trials. This gang of thieves
seem to have thought that nobody, from
the Secretary of War down to the mean
est process server, could resist their stolen
money and the social pull of their Army
tool, and they had success enough outside
of the Army to confirm their error.
Their most remarkable success has been
In Canada, where courts and government
seem to be built on a different plan. Crim
inal suits were brought against the con
tractors, in civil courts of course, for
embezzlement of public funds, arid Greene
and Gaynor took refuge In Canada. There
was a fierce legal battle over their extra
dition, which Included an exciting chase
of the American officers in custody of the
embezzlers by Canadian officers with a
writ of habeas -corpus from Quebec to
Montreal. The subsequent proceedings at
the latter place has escaped attention in
this country till the Attorney-General at'
Washington asked the Secretary of State
to take the matter up with the Imperial
government, upon a most remarkable
statement of the attitude of high Canad
It appears that the boodlers have been
spending their money as generously In
Canada as they did In the United States.
They have employed as counsel fit mo of
lawyers to which belong the highest offi
cials of the provincial and Dominion gov
ernments; and the officers of our Depart
ment of Justice say frankly that the
powerful political influence of these offi
cials has obstructed proceedings for extra
dition at every turn of the case. This Is
an extraordinary accusation for the law
officers of one government to bring against
those of another, and It could hardly be
made without strong provocation. The
charge Is repeated by the Attorney-General
In his communication to thn nonro
tary of State, in terms wiilch would beJ
considered Insulting, were they used with
reference to Morocco or Bulgaria.
It may be imagined that the communi
cation will cause some irritation In Can
ada. But the Imperial government cannot
refuso to take the matter up and. If it
should find the statements jvell founded,
to direct the extradition of Greene and
Gaynor. Our extradition treaty is with
Great Britain, not with Canada, and
Great Britain must enforce it upon her
colony. This is another Instance, like
so many in our reciprocity negotiations
and 'boundary disputes, of the difficulty
of doing business with a semi-Independent
CUBAN CONGRESS' WORK
PRESIDENT AUTHORIZED TO BOR
ROW $35tO00,O0Q GOLD.
Evident Purpose Is to Get It In Unit

ticles May Be Increased.
NEW YORK. Aug. -L The first Import
ant work of the Cuban Congress Is ap
proaching a conclusion after a. sitting of
a little more than two months. At Sat
urday night's session of the Senate the
way was prepared for circulating $35,000,
000 throughout the Island by substantially
approving the House bill for the circula
tion of this amount. The money. It Is
believed, wlli have the effect of reliev
ing considerably the present crisis.
The Cuban Congress considers It advis
able to aid the sugar planters pending
efforts to obtain reciprocity at the next
session of the American Congress. The
necessity is also recognized of paying the
debts contracted by the Cuban Junta of
New York, in aid of the last revolution.

DR. CLAREXCE CRANE, FORMERLY OF SALEM.
Dr. Clarence Crane, who was recently appointed to the Important position of
superintendent of the Burrage hospital, situated on Bumkin Island, In Boston
Harbor, was born In Salem. Or., in 1S72, and Is a grandson of the late Hon. A.
A McCully. one of the early and st urdy pioneers of the Pacific Coast. Dr. Crane
passed his boyhood days in Salem and San Francisco, and after completing his
education In 16SS be came to FortI and. and was associated in business with A.
B. Croasman, now Postmaster of the .city, for eight years. Six years ago he
entered the Boston University School of Medicine, and he received bis diploma
four years later. He practiced his profession in the hospitals, and the City of
Boston until be was appointed to take, charge of the Burrage Hospital, where he
will have supervision over a large corps of physicians. His appointment Is
sldered a tribute to his standing as a physician, and the Boston papers speak
highly of his qualifications for such an Important charge.

also for payments of the services of the
army, amounting to 523.000.000. To bring
this loan within the terms of the Piatt
amendment and other provisions of the
Cuban Constitution, the present Congress,
before adjourning, will provide a way to
pay interest and will establish a sinking
fund to redeem the principal. This prob
ably will be done by means of a stamp
tax. Any balance of the loan will be
applied to agriculture at the discretion

approved by Congress, only the details
remaining for discussion, which will begin

Blc Loan Antliorlscd.
WASHINGTON. Aug. 4. The State De
partment has received the following cable
gram from ' Minister Squlers, dated Ha
vana, August 4:
"The House has passed a bill authorizing
a loan of 535.000,000; minimum rate of Is
sue, 90 per cent. Maximum Interest 5 per
cent, redeemable. In 40 years."
Under the Piatt amendment the United
States is bound to take cognizance of
every action of the Cuban Government re
lating to loans. Article 2 of that amend
"That said government shall not as
sume or contract any public debt to pay
the Interest upon which and to make rea
sonable sinking fund provision for the
ultimate discharge of which the ordinary
revenues of the Island of Cuba, after de
fraylngthe current expenses of the gov
ernment, shall be Inadequate."
No computation has been made t'o ascerr
tain whether or not the loan provided for
in the bill which Minister Squlers refers
to trespasses upon this provision of the
Piatt amendment, but it is presumed that
the Cuban revenues can pay the Inter
est and provide a sinking fund beside de
fraying tho ordinary expenses of the
government, as provided In the amend
ment. At tho same time It will no doubt
be found very difficult to Interject this
particular provision, as the question of
revenues may fluctuate according to the
conditions in the Island. It is known
that the Intention of article 2 was to pro
vide against any extraordinary Issue of
bonds for the purpose of redeeming the
bonds of the so-called republic previous to
tho Spanish-American War, and the pay
ment of large bounties to those who had
taken part in the insurrection against
Spain. It was Intended as a check upon
the Cuban Government In the matter of
incurring Indebtedness, although it carries
no provision indicating what would be
the action of the United States should the
Cuban Government exceed the indebted
ness prohibited by the amendment.
Neither Is there anything in the amend
ment Indicating what steps the United
States would take to determine whether
the Indebtedness was beyond the proscrip
tion or whether It would prevent the In
curring of such Indebtedness.

There seems to be no connection be
tween statesmanship and fashions, at
least at first sight. As a matter of fact,
nearly every move In the world's dlplo-
macy is accompanied by novelties nnd
changes in woman's attire. The entente
between France and Russia revolutionized
modes and replaced the corsage with the
Russian blouse. Our growing Intercourse
with Nicaragua has brought into the mar
ket some of the odd beetle jewelry for
which that country Is famous.
Not alone Nicaragua, but all of the
Central American republics are wonder
fully rich In insect life. Both butterflies
and beetles are marked by the most mag
nificent colorings known to entomology.
The aborigines utilized many of the beet
les for decorative purposes and their Span
ish conquesors adopted the beautiful or
naments. The favorite beetles the writer
has found to be of three classes. One Is
about the same, shape and size as the
Egyptian" scarab, though a trifle, flatter
and very much stronger. It Is coated with
a green enamel of metallic luster, which
looks like a gem from some other planet.
The Indians cure the beetle by drying
and smoking, and mount It with golden
legs.- This Is set upon a disk of white
stone, carnellan, milk quartz, or even por
celain, which. In turn. Is rimmed with
gold. This Is employed as a brooch, cuff
button or breastpin. Sometimes the beetle
is mounted upon a thin plate of gold or
silver, and Is used as an earring.
The second class of beetles are of the
same general outline as the tumble-bug,
buVhelr wing cases are of- rich, change
able purple, blue and green, with metallic
luster. The tlntfc-varies with the angle at
which the light strikes the surface. They
are not as strong as the scarab, and are
employed for making necklaces and brace
lets". Three or four are fastened together
so as to form a bead, and a number q(
these beads arcstrung upon elastic cord
or gold wire. When around a snowy neck
or wrist they make a--wonderfully striking
display of color and light.

arc two sides to the story, the Smith

while the BIggers crowd state that the
assault by Smith was entirely unpro

Immediately separated the two men and
took Smith outside the picnic grounds. It
is stated that the reason why Smith has

FROZEN THE YEAR AROUND
TWO WONDERFUL LAKES DISCOV
ERED IX BAKER COUNTY.
Located !H"ear Baker, City in a Very
Wild Portion of tie Granite
BAKER CITY. Or., Aug. L (Special.)
Two lakes covered with Ice at all times
of the year have just been discovered In
Baker County. C. M. Sage, a business
man of this city, on Sunday, July 27,
crossed two good-sized lakes In the Gran
ite Mountains, some miles northeast of
Cornucopia, In Baker County, on' hard-
frozen ice. Mr. Sage, with a party of
friends, went on a hunting and. pleasure
trip to the almost inaccessible mountain
peaks .back of the town of Cornucopia,
In the Panhandle district of Baker County.
The mountains are high and rugged, and
before " passing the timber line the ex
plorer must find his way through a pri
meval forest. A packhorse Is the only
means of getting into this dlstirct, except
to trudge along on foot, which, to say
the least. Is uphill business. One part of
the road is so encumbered by fallen trees
that It Is almost Impossible to get through.
In order to get supplies to their claims,
two prospectors -were obliged to cut a trail
through this tangle of fallen trees, and
It was by means of this trail that Mr.
Sage and his friends were enabled to as
cend the mountains, until they finally dis
covered the two frozen lakes referred to.
The lakes are near the summit on tne
north side of the mountain, nnd In order
to reach them the party traveled over Ice
and snow for a distance of live miles.
The bodies of water are small. One Is
about 150 feet across, and 700 feet in diam
eter, and the other Is between
600 and 700 feet In diameter. They
are well -defined lakes or pool3,
however, covered With a thick coat
ing of Ice, clear as crystal, and as smooth
as glass, which Is so thick and strong that
the exploring party did not hesitate to
ride across on horseback and load their
Mr. Sage says so far as he Is able to
judge the Ice on the lakes never melts,
because they are so situated behind, two
tall peaks that the sun's rays never strike
them with sufficient power to make any
Impression on the snow and ice.
This land of perpetual snow and Ice is
within a day's ride of Baker City by the
present means of transportation, part way
on a buckboard and the rest on horseback.
It would scarcely be more than a ride of
an hour and a half on an electric railroad,
which Is entirely practical and among both
the probabilities and possibilities of the
future, xne scenery on the road to the
summit Is attractive, alike to the tourist
In search of pleasure, and the scientist In
search of knowledge. There are a number
of fine gold and copper prospects In the
mountains, both below and above the
frozen lakes, and In the course of time
there will evidently be some very rich
mines opened up in this unexplored re
gion. Mr. Sage Is of the opinion that from
the lay of the country other larger and
more picturesque lakes with perpetual Ice
will be discovered.
HANNA GETS A CANE.
And He Mnlces a. Speech Declaring
CLEVELAND, O.. Aug. 4. The 700 or
S00 employes of the Cleveland City Rail
way Company, of which Senator Hanna
Is president, met in a down-town nan to
night and presented to Senator Hanna a
valuable cane. In acknowledging tne
gift. Senator Hanna expressed his sincere
thanks to his employes for their gut, ana
spoke of the rela'tlons that he hopes soon
to see exist between capital and labor. In
part he said:
"I cannot adequately express my feel
ings on this occasion. It has been the
one ambition of my life to merit the re
spect. If not the affection, of the men In
my employ. I have been with laboring
men all my life, and have been their em
ployer for many years, and this night
means something to me, for It brings with
it the satisfaction of knowing that so
large a number of men In my employ have
been satisfied with my career as an em
ployer. "Your chairman has referred to the Civic
Federation. I say to you that were It not
for my olliclal position and my duties as
a public servant, I would devote more
time to the policies on which that organ
ization is founded."
Concerning the anthracite strlket Sen
ator Hanna said:
"When the great anthracite strike was
threatening, our federation worked hard
for weeks to avert It to bring men and
employers together but failed. After It
was on, we worked hard to settle It, but
failed. However, In that matter It Is my
personal satisfaction to know the state
ment that I made at the time that the
men would not go back on their
word, has been kept, and that a sympa
thetic strike has been averted. I told
tho federation that there would be no
sympathetic strike among the bitumin
"I believe in manhood. Labor organiza
tions are not things which can be sued
for breach of contract. They have no cor
porate existence. But I would rather have
the promise of a laboring man, backed
only by his sense of honor and his man
hood, than any agreement which might be
enforced by law.
"Manhood and Integrity are the same,
whether they belong to a miner, a street
railway man or a boss. For myself, I
have no higher ambition than to work for
the purpose of bringing .capital and la
bor nearer together and live out my life
