THE MORNING OREGONIAN, THURSDAY, MAY 21,. 903.
IS AFTER GAMBLERS
Flegel Wants Police Methods
COUNCIL TURNS HIM DOWN
Executive Board to Prod Street Con
tractors Remonstrance Against
Saloon. Next Door to Church,
Proves of N'o Avail.
Oa motion of Mr. Merrill, the Coun
cil yesterday declared today. May 21,
a holiday in the afternoon for all city
employes except those on duty In the
police and flro service, in order that
they might attend the ceremonies in
honor of the visit of President Roose
velt Gambling, "whisky and paving occupied
the attention of the City Council yester
day. 2Ir. Flegel renewed his attack on
the present system or controlling gam
bling, and moved resolutions ordering an
investigation, but the whole subject was
shelved by reference to committee. Reso
lutions calling on the Executive Board
to establish and execute rules for the
prompt completion of street improvement
contracts and fortho Imposition of pen
alties on delinquents went through with a
rush. A remonstrance from members of
tho Danish Lutheran Church against the
granting of a liquor license to John Kel
lar for a saloon directly In front of their
building at Thirteenth and Gllsan streets
was turned down in face of strong oppo
sition and the license granted, although
the license committee had reported
against the license.
For nearly an hour slow routine busi
ness was the only thing before the body.
Then from the street committee came the
following Interesting resolution, with a
recommendation that it be adopted:
To Enforce Street Contracts.
Whereas, The condition of tho streets
of the City of Portland has for many
years been of such character as to cause
the most unfavorable comment, thereby
resulting detrimentally to the prosperity
and advancement of tho city: and
Whereas, The people of the city are now
anxious and ready to mako street im
provements of such character as will re
lieve the city from the present Incon
Whereas. Numerous contracts have
been awarded for street improvements and
the contractors therefor have been will
fully negligent In failing to complete said
improvements within the time specified in
their contracts therefor; and
Whereas. Tho street committee, after
having fully investigated this matter, is of
the opinion that further effort on the part
of the Council towards street improve
ment will be useless until a more rigid
enforcement of contracts shall be executed
by the Executive Board; therefore be it
Resolved, That the Executive Board be
and is hereby requested to formulate such
rules and regulations for the completion
of work and to establish such penalties as
will secure prompt and faithful execution
of all contracts for street Improvements.
Mr. Flegel jumped to his feet and ejacu
lated: "I would like to amend by Insert
ing tho words 'and enforce' after the
word 'establish,' In the last clause."
"Tho s .-nger you make it the better It
suits me, ;aid Mr. Rumelin, chairman of
the street ommittee, and the resolution
,was adopted unanimously.
Hitch in Market Franchise.
Thrre was a slight hitch in tho matter
of g 'iting tho proposed franchise to the
TTnL Market Company for tho use of
tho 'i.irket block. This franchise has
been .ead twice, and was to be adver
tised, but Mr. Flegel stated that he was
not quite satisfied with it In some places.
"There aro a few technical points that
'should be changed before it Is finally
passed, concerning the penalty clause and
the provision that the block can be used
for nothing but a market," said he.
"There is no way for the city to require
the company to lay the cement walks,
and no provision for the offices of the in
spectors." The ordinance was then re
ferred back to the special committee that
had It in hand first.
Flegel Attacks Gambling.
In the last batch of resoltlons came the
following, which the Auditor read in clar
Whereas, The Police Department of the
City of Portland has entered Into an ar
rangement with the various gamblers and
gambling-houses in the City, of Portland,
Or., whereby the games of faro, roulette,
wheel of fortune, poker, stud poker, keno,
fan tan, craps and other games are per
mitted to run and be conducted In the
City of Portland, contrary to the ordi
nances of the City of Portland and the
laws of the State of Oregon, under a so
called system oi lines, whereby the Police
Department of the city Is supposed to ar
rest tho various nersons known to said
department to bo so conducting gambling
games ana nouses in tne city or Port
land, at such times as the said depart
ment or the Ohief thereof think fit. proper
or necessary for the regulation of such
games and gamblers;. and
Whereas, When such gamblers are ar
rested they are required to deposit with
one of the officers of the Police Depart
ment such a sum in cash as in the opin
ion of such officer or the Chief of the
Pollca Department will properly regulate
and control such gambler until he is again
arrested, which sum thus deposited is
thereafter declared forfeited by the Police
Court, upon the failure of such gambler
to appear therein and defend against a
cnarge oi gamming; ana
Whereas. The system thus established
subjects the Police Department to critl
clsm, for showing favors to certain gam
mers ana proprietors or gambling-houses,
by arresting them less frequently than
other gamblers are arrested, and also by
requiring them to pay less sums to the
oincer or tne aepartmcnt wnen the ar
rests are made; and
Whereas, Certain officers of the Police
Department are also suDjoct to the crltl
clsm as well as the temptation of accent
ing personal favors from the gamblers
thus favored and in return for favors
Whereas. The Police Department has
"been accused of adopting the policy of
protecting Pdrtland gamblers from the
competition of gamblers of other cities
who micht desire to start In business in
the City of Portland on account of the
very favorable conditions which exist in
this city, thereby creating a monopoly
and tending to retard the growth of gam
bling In the City of Portland and reduce
the number and amount of fines paid to
the city; and
Whereas, It Is the duty of the Council of
the City of Portland to regulate gam
bling wnnin tne city ana oy ordinance to
license all business, trades and callings
and fix the amount and maimer in which

partment appears to exceed its constltu
tional power and to encroach upon the
duties ana prerogatives or tne Council;
therefore he it
Resolved. By the Council of the Cltv of
Portland, tnat the license committee of
tnis council be ana Hereby is directed to
Investigate the conduct of the Police De
partment In relation to gambling and
gamblers in the City of Portland, and to
the end that said committee may be able
-to fully and satisfactorily make said in
vestigation It is hereby given power to
summon any and all persons to appear
before such committee and answer under
oath in regard to all questions In relation
"I introduced this resolution because it
seems'to me that It is time to take up the
matter of gambling seriously. I move that
It be adopted." Mr. Albee seconded the
"Move it be referred to the sewer com
mittee," exclaimed Mr. Merrill.
"Gambling is wide open with the con
sent of the Police Department, continued
Mr. Flegel. "We all know that it is wide
open, and there Is no use to deny it. The
department has the power to close It
tight within 24 hours. I might say that
the Chief tof Police told me he made a mis
take when it was opened in March, and he
promised that It would never be opened
again. This was on tho fourth of April,
and on the 21st It was wide open again.
We are all entitled to know whether the
city Is getting its money or not."
A motion to adopt was lost, and the res
olution was referred to the committee on
health and police.
Resolutions came announcing the Inten
tion of the Council to build steel bridges
across Marquam and Sullivan Gulches at
a cost of $15,000 each.
"Just read that slowly," murmured Mr.
Sharkey, "especially the cost."
The Auditor read the resolutions over
again, and Mr. Sharkey seemed satisfied.
The resolutions were passed without a
Saloon Prevails Over Chnrch.
Next came a resolution granting a li
cense for a saloon to John Kellar, at
Thirteenth and Gllsan streets. Kellar ap
plied through Henry Wagner, of Weln-
hard's Brewery, to the liquor license com
mittee the other day, and the commit
tee refused, on the request of the Danish
Lutheran Church, which Is located im
mediately in the rear of the proposed
saloon. Kellar was not satisfied with
the action of the committee, and presented
his resolution to the Council yesterday.
Mr. Bentley moved that the matter be
sent back to the committee, but the mo
tion was lost, 4 to 7, the vote standing
as follows: Albee, Bentley, Cardwell and
Flegel for, and Merrill, Sherrett, Foeller,
Slgler, Rumelin, Zimmerman and Sharkey
Mr. Albee then took the floor and spoke
for the church, pointing out that it was a
bad precedent to pass matters over the
recommendation of the committee. "It's a
matter of precedent, and in this, case a
dangerous precedent. We have a license
committee, and It's their business to look
Into all these matters before we pass on
them. When they make a report we shoud
stand by It, otherwise we open the way
for countless similar actions in the future.
Then we have here the pastor of the
church, who can tell of all the Indignities
he and his congregation have suffered at
the hands of tho people who have oper
ated this place heretofore."
"The pastor is here," said Mr. Bentley,
and he can tell us the sort of place this
has been in the past. I move the courte
sies of tho floor be extended to him."
Messrs. Merrill and Sharkey both ob
jected. Then said Mr. Flegel:
"A remonstrance came in against tho
granting of this license, signed by C4 per
sons. Now the brewery and this man
himself are the only ones who have ap
peared to ask that this place be opened up.
From the last saloon the church mem
bers suffered every indignity. Women
and children coming to and from their
place of worship were compelled to leave
the walk and take to tho street to avoid
coming In contact with the drunken
wretches who obstructed the passageway.
Now they come C4 strong and ask that the
license be denied. The saloon man comes,
too, in some way, and asks that the rec
ommendation of the committee be set
aside. It seems to me that this license
should not be granted.
"I am thoroughly in accord with the re
marks of Mr. Flegel," announced Mr.
Bentley, "and also those of Mr. Albee."
The question of granting a license over
the recommendation of the committee was
then considered, and the license was
granted by a vote of 6 to 5, the vote stand
ing: Foeller. Merrill, Sherrett, Sharkey,
Rumelin and Zimmerman for, and Albee,
Bentley, Cardwell, Flegel and Slgler
Streets to Be Improved.
The Woodmen of the World were grant
ed the right by ordinance to hold a street
fair in the Park blocks between July 6 and
27; and George L. Baker was authorized

lows: Providing for the time and manner

CHILDREN TOO NOISY.
In Effort to Quiet Them Fred Martin
Mrs. J. M. McBrlde didn't like noisy
children, but Mrs. George Bradley, the
mother of the children, thought they had
a right to make all the noise they pleased,
as the Bradleys were visitors' at the
house, and not tenants of Mrs. McBrlde,
they were requested to leave. A door was
slammed In the face of Fred Martin, Mrs.
McBride's son, so he kicked In a panel' of
the door, and in doing this wounded Mrs.
Bradley on the knee. The case cime up
in the Municipal Court yesterday morn
ing. Mrs. McBrlde runs a rooming-house at
Grand avenue and Belmont street. Among
her tenants is Mrs. Annie Brown. Mrs.
Bradley, together with three children, vis
ited her last Friday. The children of the
two families made too much noise for the
good of the house, Mrs. McBrlde thought,
so when the band of noisy youngsters re
turned from an errand she told the visit
ing rompers to remain outside. Their
mother appeared on the scene, and a lively
time occurred between the indignant land
lady and the indignant mother. Finally
Mrs. Bradley managed to convey tho
frightened children upstairs to the apart
ments of their hostess. Then Mr. Martin
took a hand In the case. He offered to
pay back Mrs. Brown's rent if she would
leave Instantly. She-answered by slam
ming the door in his face. Mr. Martin
didn't like that a little bit, so he kicked
in a panel in the door. Mrs. Brown was
standing close behind It. and as the panel
gave way under the vigorous onslaught of
Mr. Martin's foot a piece of the wood
struck her on the leg above the knee.
Pollcemin Qulnton was summoned by
Mrs. Brown and Martin was arrested on a
charge of assault and battery. After hear
ing a part of the testimony yesterday
morning Judge Hogue continued the case
until Wednesday of next 'week.
Ilnmlll Withdrawn From the Race.
The owners of the steam tug Ernest A.
Hamlll yesterday withdrew the offer they
made to the city for her sale at a price of
$21,750. All the correspondence and tele
grams that passed between the owners
and the city were taken back to Seattle,
so that th Executive Boird no longer
has anything to do with the Sound boat.
The committee will meet In the near fu
ture, possibly tomorrow morning, to con
sider the new offer of the St. Louis, a
steel boat now In Alaska, which can be
had by the city for the modest sum of

I East Side.
Steve Collins, chairman of the commit
tee on the second Alblna ferry, said yes
terday that there will be no difficulty in
securing landings on both sides of the
river. The committee investigated the
conditions on both sides. . On the East
Side near the foot of Russell street, Mr.
Collins says that an approach and land
ing may be had. while on the West Side
no difficulty will be found. He thinks
that this second ferry Is among the neces
sities as the present ferry Is already over
tasked to handle the traffic A bridge was
wanted, but the people could not hope to
get one and asked for this ferry- Mr.
Collins points to the manufacturing con
cerns in North Portland, and says that
hundreds of Alblna men work in them.
Besides Alblna wants lumber from the
sawmills for the buildings that are to be
built. A meeting will be held after the
visit of tho President and steps taken to
bring out a full vote.
"We shall certainly do what the Sell
wood people have promised to do," said
Mr. Collins, "and vote loyally for the Al
blna ferry, the rebuilding of the Morrison
bridge and the Sellwood ferry. I believe
.we can carry all three propositions, while
we are directly interested in the Alblna
ferry. We must have this ferry. You
will observe that the traffic over the steel
bridge is very heavy. After a time a
bridge will have to be built north of the
steel bridge, but we can get along with
another ferry for a number of years."
The ferry committee called on Mr.
Fuller, manager of the Portland Railway
Company, some time ago, and he spoke
favorably of building a branch line down
Russell street to connect with the pro
posed ferry for the benefit of the north
WORK OX SEW SEWER SYSTEM.
Large Force of Men Employed in
Contractors Sweeney & Fralney have
commenced, work on the Cook-avenue
sewer system. A force of 30 men com
menced work at tho point In the county
road, north of tho railway shops In Lower
Alblna, where the Beech-street conduit
crosses the railway land to the rivers At
this point the Cook-avenue sewer will be
GO inches In diameter, and will be built
of stone blocks and brick. Excavations
were begun at the branch from the Beech-
etreet conduit and will follow the county
road for some distance when it will turn
eastward to enter the district proper. As
the large conduit across the railway land
was built for both the Beech-street and
Cook-avenue districts a second one will
not bo required.
A force of .men also began work at the
extreme end of the system near Union
avenue, the Intention of the contractors
being to. work from both ends. The con
tract price was $74,000. The Cook-avenue
district includes over 2000 lots, while the
Beech-street system Included 1200. When
tho latter system was being constructed
the Central Alblna Board of Trade de
manded and secured a special inspector
representing the property-owners. M. E.
Thompson, president, said yesterday that
tho property-owners in the Cook-avenue
district should by all means have one or
more inspectors to watch the work to the
conclusion. This was done with the
Beech-street system, and first-class work
