The committee on trays and means of
the Council met informally yesterday
afternoon and decided to recommend a
fiat tax levy of 7 mills on the dollar, and
an additional levy of 2 mills for the pay
ment ot interest on the bonded indebted
ness. This will make a total of 9& mills,
"with tne sinking fund tax excluded. The
total schedule and esltmates will be pre
sented to the Council at the special meet
ing this afternoon. On the assessed valu
ation of city property of 543.953.492, this
tax -would yield a revenue of $47,558 19. The
Council will probably pass the tax, and
then adjourn until Friday, when the esti
mates will be presented and considered.
The Civil Service Commission did not
organize yesterday, and It probably will
not until the Legislature adjourns, and
Mr. Hodson is thereby given time to at
tend the meeting. When asked about
the organization of the commission, Mayor
Williams had nothing to say. From, in
dications, a meeting will not be held until
after the adjournment of the Legislature,
and then overy applicant for positions In
the Fire and Police Departments will "have
to undergo examinations. No line of ques
tions has been determined upon, but in
substance these have been fixed specifical
ly 'or the Police and Fire Departments:
Place of nativity, ability to read and
write, charges of perjury and other
crimes, length and place of residence, and
occupation. As to his physical condition
the applicant will have to answer the
question as to whether he has had rheum
atism, and if so, when. Also, if he had
ever served as a policeman or fireman
before. The final question that will prob
ably be propounded in the papers is:
"Have you ever paid or promised to pay
cr give any money or other consideration
directly or indirectly for any aid or influ
ence toward the procuring of your ap
pointment? In speaking of the proposed civil service
rules, Mayor Williams said yesterday:
"All persons who have been appointed
by me, except the heads of the different
departments, must file an application for
reappointment with the Civil Service Com
mission. All those who desire positions
under the city government must also file
an application with the commission; all
in the Police Department, except the
Chief; all in the Fire Department, except
the Chief; all in the Street Work Depart
ments, except the Chief, and In the Water
Board, except the superintendent and en
gineer, all employes under the Park Com
mission, except the superintendent, will
have to file applications, as well as all
persons desiring places in the different de
partments. "These applications are to be filed with
the City Auditor, and after tomorrow he
will have blanks for the applicants to fill
put, and from him they can procure them.
"Several applications have ibeen filed with
him already by those who not only desire
appointments, but those who are now em
ployed and desire to retain their po
sitions." It has been announced officially that no
applications for places will he received
by the City Auditor for places in the
Police and Fire Departments. All appli
cations must be submitted to the Civil
Service Commission, and passed on by
that body. So it is inferred that no action
will be taken upon any application until
the board is legally organized.

VICTORY FOR SHEEPMEN.
Federal Judge Denies Hitchcock's
Power to Make Rules.
SALT LAKE CIT, Jan. 26. Judge Mar
shall, of the Unltea States District Court,
today sustained the demurrer of the de
fendant in the case of the United States
against Frank Martinus, who was charged
with running a band of 2000 sheep on the
Fish Lake forest reserve, in violation of
the rules formulated for the protection
of forest reserves by the Secretary of the
Interior. Judge Marshall states that
Congress has exceeded its legislative
power In empowering the Secretary of the
Interior to make rules the violation of
which would be a criminal act, and held
that the law was unconstitutional. The
decision Is regarded as one of the great
est importance to- Utah sheepmen. A
number of pending similar cases will be
thrown out of court.
The effect of Judge Marshall's decision
will be to throw open to sheep and cattle
Interests more than 1,000,000 acres of the
choicest grazing land in the state, which
for the past few years has been carefully
protected by the Government. As soon as
the situation becomes known. It is be
lieved hundreds of thousands of sheep will
be brought across the line from adjoin
ing states, and the forest reserves will be
dovered with sheep.

CONGRESSMAN JOHN C. NEEDHAM,
of- California, who was one of the
members of the Congressional com!
mitteo sent here as an escort to the re
mains Of the late Thnmnc W Tnntrnn
about the most ontimlstlr! mnn thf
Pacific Coast has ever eent to the Na
tional juegisiature. In talking about legis
lation affecting the Coast he said:
"This Sidft of thft bpm'snhnro l -I..C4-
beginnlng to get what it deserves, eo far
j vimivba is concernea. we are get
ting money for irrigation, and for that
we owe a great deal to Mr. Tongue and
to Senator Mitchell. We are getting lib
eral appropriations for harhnr Imnrm-o
ment3, and we will get a contract to build
ux least one 01 tne new battleships that
Congress has ordered.
"Congress knowa now where rolls the
Oregon. It would have known it by this
time even if we had never had a war
with Snaln. but that tvav - .v,i i.
to make the National Legislature know
mat uiero was a pacific Coast. It was
Our boiS Who went nvpr nnrt tnnlr
Philippines, and if Uncle Sam ever wants
uuyiiuns eise, wnetner it Is nailed down
or not, we will go and get It for him. In
return we will ask of him only the same
favors that he grants to his people In
"And we will get them. Whether It is
a contract to build a warship or an appro
priation for harbor Improvements, Con
gress today Is liberal to the Pacific Coast.
Five years ago every city on the Coast
would be at the mercy of a hostile power
in time of war, but now we have a fleet
to protect us that is equal to the Atlantic
squadron. I do not want to eay anything
that would make our conditions too war
like, but in this connection it may be
well to mention that most of the Central
American revolutions are being equipped
these days on the Pacific Coast When
the Colombians need a gunboat they come
up here for It, and any day now we may
expect an order from President Castro
for a regiment or two."
NEVER In the history of the United
States Navy has there been such a de
mand for able-bodied men as there Is at
present. Alt of Uncle Sam's warships in
Pacific waters are' lacking full comple
ments and more than 1000 men are needed
to fill up the ranks. The scarcity of
jackies and the resulting demand for en
listments has caused the Navy Depart
ment to hold out special Inducements for
recruits. Not only in the seamen branch
of the service but in all other depart
ments more men are needed.
There are now on this coast a number
of war vessels which lack full comple
ments and there are several which will
soon go into commission and will need
fcill crews. The cruiser Marblehead now
Ving In the harbor is in need" of men.
The monitor Wyoming is soon to go into
commission and men are being sent to
Mare Island to serve on her. The Wyo
ming will be used as a gunnery ship and
will cruise on the coast while training
the men to handle the big guns."
In speaking of the situation Lieutenant
J. C. Burnett, the recruiting officer, who
is in command of the recruiting offices
on the coast, said:
"Fully 1000 men are needed to enlist
in the Navy In order properly to man ves
sels on this coast and on the Asiatic sta
tion. Men's terms are continually expir
ing and others must be secured to take
their places. A large number of men
must be sent to the vessels on the Asiatic
station. Particularly in the artificers'
branches of the service is the demand for
men strongest, the Navy Is offering $53 a
month for coppersmiths, $37 a month for
oilers and $40 a month for water tenders.
Firemen will receive $35 a month and
marine engineers holding licenses will be
rated as machinists of the first-class, wltt
pay of $70 a month. Examinations will
be held for warrant machinists on Feb
ruary 17, 1903, to which all machinists In
the naval service are eligible. The pay of
warrant machinists ranges from $1200 to
$1800 a year."
IF one may Judge by the business the
hotels are doing, then Portland has
reached the top wave of prosperity. A
late arrival yesterday went to three be
fore he was able to secure a room, and
then he did not get as good a room as he
wanted. Manager Phil Metschan, of the
Imperial, said last night:
"The transient demand for accommo
dation In Portland Is simply phenomenal.
Sometimes we find it this way in the
Summer, bu seldom at this time of year.
A good deal of our travel comes from
the East, and most of It is of the com
mercial sort, but Oregonlans themselves
appear to be on the move. Read the
registers at any .of the hotels today and
you will see that four-fifths of the
guests come from Oregon. I guess that
business must be good and that people
can afford to travel."
THE local Chinese colony has arranged
to bring to Portland the Chinese the
atrical company now playing In San Fran
cisco, and a play-house will bo found for
them. The Chinese actor is practically a
prisoner in this country, and the lovers of
the native drama here will have to give
heavy bonds to guarantee that he remains
in custody. He is admitted Jnto the coun
try under conditions which require this
sort of guardianship, and It is said that
the total bail of the San Francisco com
pany will amount to $23,000. Of course the

NONE FROM SAX FRANCISCO SINCE
Road Expected to Be Cleared Today
Train Will Arrive This Morning
Rain Turns to Snow.
No train has arrived through from Cali
fornia since last Saturday evening. One Is
expected in early this (Tuesday) morning.
There has been trouble along the whole
line, but trains were yesterday running
without difficulty between Portland and
Roseburg, and the road Is expected to be
open all the way to Dunsmuir today. The
weather is far from settled, however, and
further delays may occur at exposed
points. The telegraph lines have been
in bad shape, too, and it has been impos
sible to get satisfactory reports through.
Starting out of Portland the first dam
age was at Parrot Creek, just this side
of New Era. A short distance above
Salem the track was washed out, and on
the" grade between the Harrlsburg bridge
and Junction City a long piece of track
was displaced, In the vicinity of Cottage
Grove there were further washes, and at
various points in the Umpqua Valley.
Landslides caused much trouble In the
Cow Creek Canyon. High water and soft
banks disturbed the railroad track at ex
posed places along the whole length of the

Though no train has arrived from Cali

in the number of trains dispatched for
California, two going out every day from
Portland. Not all these have carried the
full equipment, however, some of them
having only two or three day cars and no

largely for the sake of the locaL traffic,
to accommodate the people along the line.

"TP HE people that pureed up and down
rI the streets of Portland were treated
to n, little drama a day" or two ago
that could not fall to leave an Impression
In the minds of all those whose fortune It
was to witness the performance. The
dramatis personae were the fortune teller
and his blrda that have attracted so much
attention around the city lately, and a
lineman of the Portland General Electric
Company, and the scene of the action was
on Third street, just south of Alder.
The Italian and his birds have been in
Portland for a number of days, and there
has always been a good crowd gathered
around his little show on the etreets. Yes
terday he was located in the middle of the
block on Third street between Morrison
and Alder, and there were, as usual, many
watchers viewing the birds as ' they told
the fortunes of the inquisitive paa?ersby.
It was well alone toward the middle of
the afternoon, and business was brisk for
the Italian and his little blrdlets. when
one of them suddenly took, fright, and
flew to the top of a nearby telegraph pole.
There It sat, twittering and chirping on
one of the croasarms full of wlra and
It was a desperate situation for the
native of sunny Italy, and he wrung his
hands In despair as he watched his lit
tle pet perched high in the air and beyond
all hope of rescue as It seemed to him.
After much helpless gesticulation and ex
cited ejaculations, he gave up and mutely
watched the little mite, and It hopped
from wire to wire, and looked saucily
upon the crowd of people who had gath
ered on the walk below to sympathize
with the unhappy Italian.
Then from the crowd stepped George
Stinson, who was recently severely
shocked by 6000 volts of electricity at the
Union power house, with his hand still
wrapped in thick bandages. Without a
word he started up the pole, hanging with
his one good hand, and catching the iron
steps with the wrist of the injured mem
ber. It was the hardest kind of work,
but after a number of minutes' of gritty
twisting and pulling, he at last reached
the vicinity of the crossarms. and just
within reach of the little fugitive. Only
a few more steps and he would have his
hand on the bird, and he redoubled his
efforts, which were evidently very painful.
Suddonly the bird chirped, and spreading
its wings, soared in the air again to the
top of the nearest building, far out of
reach, and the plucky climber made his
way slowly to the ground without his
THE enterprise undertaken by our pop
ular bonlface, H. C. Bowers, in the pur
chase of -the Lincoln Hotel at Seattle, will
not rob our community of his presenceor
managerlcal ability. The Lincoln will be
conducted by his son-In-aw, Allan A.
Wright, who, in point of fact, is Mr.
Bower's successful pupil in hotel man
agement Several people have asked the
question, "Who is responsible for H. C.
Bower's connection with the Hotel Port
land?" and the answer is that Colonel R.
W. Mitchell- pleads guilty to the charge
of having had a hand in the transaction.
The Colonel and Mr. Bowers were close
friends In Washington, D. C, when Harry
wafl clerk at the Arlington Hotel In the
National Capital. It turns out that the
manager of the Arlington, Theopolls Ros
sclle. was an old friend of' the Colonel's
In Albany, N. Y., when the latter was a
page In the Senate and protege of
Chauncey Mitchell Depew. Along about
the boom days of '89, A. A. Newberry was
owner of the Spokane Hotel at Spokane
Falls, as it was then called, and had been
an employe of Mr. Mitchell's some years
previously. He had acquired wealth and
purchased the hotel. He was In a quand
ary as to change of management, and
knowing Colonel Mitchell's Eastern con
nections asked him where he could get a
good manager, suggesting in his Inquiry
one of the Lelands. Mr. Mitchell said,
."There was only one Leland. and he Is
dead," referring to Warren. "Warren was
head and front of the whole family," but
It so happened that Charles Leland was
brought out and placed In charge of the
Portland, and failed to achieve the eucp
cess that was expected. At Mr. Mitchell's
suggestion Mr. Bowers was Induced to
come to Spokane by Mr. Newberry, and In
a few months made the Spokane a success
Subsequently a change in management for
the Portland was decided upon, and Mr.
Mitchell, In connection with S. B. Willey
urged upon the Board of Directors of the
Portland Hotel Company to employ Mr.
Bowers. The matter of salary could not
be arranged, and Nelson Bennett, then
owner of the Tacoma at Tacoma, grasping
the situation, secured Mr. Bowers for his
hotel. The fame of the Tacoma under
Mr. Bowers' management spread abroad
in the land. This attracted the attention
of the late Henry Failing, and Mr.
Mitchell was authorized to telegraph Mr"
Bowers to come to Portland. A business
agreement was arrived .at In 15 minutes.
From the first day that Mr. Bowers took
charge of the Portland, Its business man
agement has been a success, and dividends
have accrued. Eastern visitors pronounce
it the best conducted hotel In the United
States or, abroad.
