John Doe, alias Chin Bow Quong, on a
charge of gambling. Jackson had a gen

there arc many John Does in Chinatown,
and Mr. Jackson had to enlist the services
or his deputy, Mr. Adklns, and of Deputy
Sheriff Matthews. The three made a Joint

along Second street and when they came

"I think Jack lives here," he said in

There was every evidence that Jack did
live there, and the other officers did not

WHAT FERRY WILL COST.
Allilnn Improvement Association
The Alblna Improvement Association has
furnished the Multnomah legislative dele
gation an estimate of the probable cost
of providing another free ferry for Alblna
to be established at the foot of Russell
street. Samuel Connell, president of the
association and manager of itbe Northwest
Door Company, prepared a short letter
containing the figures. It was desired
that he should go to Salem last Friday and
In person furnish the information, - but
owing to his severe.slckneas he could not.
In his letter It Is set forth that a larger
ferry operated in place of the present one
would not provide, the relief asked for.
and that nothing short of another ferry
boat will meet the requirements of that
"portion of the city. The present ferry now
carries, he says, 2500 pedestrians, and 700
vehicles of all sorts per day. There would
be immediate business enough for the
second ferry. There was much delay in
the transaction of business, and conse
quent loss. Mr. Connell cites the exper
ience of the Northwest Door' Company.
of which he is the manager, which has
four teams, and says that they have to
wait constantly for trans do ration.
Mr. Connell staies the cost of establish
lng another, ferry some distance north of
the present one. The cost of building a
suitable boat he places at 313,000. and the
landings on both sides of the river, with
slips and waiting-rooms. :au JS.O0O. mak
ing a total of 340.000. He places the cost
of operation at 3300 per month. Mr. Con

being plenty of solid and level ground re
quiring 'no piles, has been held back for

ings have been erected because there are
The Alblna ferry bill provides for the

NEW YORK, Feb. 9. Rev. Dr. J. M.

enthusiastic way, declaring that there
had been 1,500,000 converts made by the
Methodists In the last four years.
Dr. Buckley dlspfited the accuracy of
these figures. He declared that statistics
showed that Methodism was actually de

as to keep within the law.
The case was set lor a second inai sev

The fact that the strict letter of the law
was not compiled with, was not noticed

Attorney Robert ualloway. who defend

Pills. I was then living in Pueblo, Colo., 1
and I told him that after suffering for
four or five years with backache and
other consequences of either excited or
weakened kidneys, I went to my druggist
in Pueblo for Doan's Kidney Pills and
took a course of the treatment. They
cured me, and cured me quickly. Since
then I have not'had the slightest symp
tom of a recurrence. I have recommenc
ed them to a number of friends and ac
qualntances and told them if they old not
cure them they could return the box to
me and 1 would pay them for them. No
one ever came back with a box, so I knew
they were cured." Ask the Laue-Davli
