ASSURED OF HOMES
Veteran Fire Horses Find Host
HUMANE SOCIETY INTERCEDES
Last Days Will Be Spent In Pleasant
Pastures-Plea for One-Cent Fare
Over Morrison Bridge-Landings
for Albina Ferry.
Longer life and an assurance of a
peaceful end for the eleven old Are engine
horses -was given by the Executive Board
at its special meeting yesterday after
noon. The "petition of GOO East Side people for
special cars charging a 1-cent fare across
the Morrison-street bridge while under
construction -will be transmitted by Mayor
"Williams to the City & Suburban Com
pany, with his personal request that the
company deal as leniently as possible
with those who must cross the bridge
after it Is closed to foot passengers.
No sooner had the -photographs- of three
veteran fire engine horses doomed by the
Executive Board to be publicly auctioned
off and the accompanying sketch been
published in The Oregonlan of Thursday,
than a protest began from a number of
local horsemen as -well as the officers of
the Oregon Humane Society. Members
of the Executive Board were telephoned
to by several persons willing to give the
old horses a comfortable home for the
remainder of their days. It seemed as
though every one who had ever seen old
"Colonel" sail down Washington street
with his peculiar gait took an interest in
bis final disposal. The City Hall offices
were besieged and When W. T. Shana
han, corresponding secretary of the Hu
mane Society, appeared before the meet
ing yesterday, it was an old story to the
The fire committee, William Fliedner
and Edward D. Curtis, will have the Job
of selecting homes for the faithful old
horses who have outlived their useful
ness. Whitney L. Boise has put In an
application for old "Colonel," but Mr.
Shanahan also wants him. Plenty of
pleasant pastures are pledged for the
other ten horses.
Cheap Rides Over Bridge.
What to do wiin the petition for a 1
cent fare across the Morrison-street
bridge created the discussion .of the ses
sion. George H. Howell gave the Bast
Elders' view of the situation, laying stress
upon the length of time the structure
would bo closed to pedestrians while the
street-cars would be allowed to run.
But Mr. Boise was still sore because the
proposal for a 2-cent fare made at tho
time the closing was announced had been
bitterly opposed by Mr. Howell and other
East Side people. He frankly said so in
declining to make any request to the City
"Well, then, I'll write to them myself
and say that I wish they would do what
they can for these petltlonera No street
railway can afford to neglect the wishes
of the people entirely," was the way
Mayor Williams ended the discussion
satisfactorily to every member.
Landings for New Ferry.
The Executlvo Board declared Its will
ingness to pay $8000 for an 80-foot front
age strip at the foot of Randolph street
in lower Albina for a landing for the
Albina ferry. At the West Side landing
is a piece of ground of the same size
near the Star Sand Company's dock at
the foot of Wilson street, for which $12,
000 will be offered.
A bushel of bills, mostly on account of
the sale of the $450,000 worth of bridge
and ferry bonds, was disposed of in de
tail. The bonds were officially started
Thursday to the Chicago purchasers, and
the money was received here at the same
A little Icbs than ?30,000 was ordered
paid to tho Pacific Construction Com
pany as the first two Installments on the
Morrlsonstreet bridge contract.
Mr. Boise told of the Investigating trip
of R. L. Gllsan, City Engineer Elliott,
Councilman Sharkey and himself, to Ta
coma, where bltullthlc pavements were
inspected. The rumors circulated about
Portland as to the condition of the Ta
coma bltullthlc pavements proved a
boomerang, for each investigator returned
with a better opinion of them than he
had ever had before. Mr. Boise told how
a section of pavement on one of Tacoma's
precipitous streets had hung together, al
though the earth beneath was entirely
AGAINST VACATING STREET.
Two Remonstrances Against Petition
of Union Oil Company.
Whether a perpendicular portion of a
hillside street should be vacated that the
plant of tho Union Oil Company of Cali
fornia might be erected partially upon
stilts thereon, was the principal ques
tion before the meeting of the street
committee of the Council yesterday after
noon. Portsmouth avenue and Bluff
street, near University Park, were the
streets in question.
F. I. McKenna and p. L. Willis were
there in the favor of two remonstrances
against the vacation. Mr. Willis stated
that two lots which he owned would be
cut off If the streets were closed.
A. F. Flegel, in whose ward Is situated
the oil district, asked that decision be
deferred until Manager Handy, of the
Union Oil Company, returns from Cali
fornia. C. K. Harbaugh and others hadn't for
gotten about Occident street, and the Im
provement thereof by the O. R. & N.
Company that access to the East Side
Depot might be obtained. This matter
has been before the Council for months
beyond end, and it wasn't ended yester
day, for the committee will personally
visit the ground Monday morning.
A resident of Orchard Place sent In a
petition asking that a rotten cedar tree
be removed as a danger to life and prop
erty. As the tree overhung his house
the members laughed when he referred
to it as "the above tree."
"As it is Springtime tell him to wait
awhile, and we'll see dat tree leave," said
Punster Sharkey. Only by the prompt
action of Chairman Rumelln, was Fred
Merrill prevented from slaying the
Eighth-Ward representative for the far
fetched Joke. It was decided that as the
tree was In Mr. Flegel's ward, and as
Mr. Flegel had left the meeting, he should
be ordered to chop down the tree him
self. Petitions not remonstrated against
were received for the replanklng of Wil
liams avenuo from Morris to Alberta,
and the improvement of East Thirty
fourth street from East Stark to Haw
thorne avenue with crushed rock.
FIFTH STREET SUITS HIM.
Edward J. plnck Says Improvement
The present catch-as-catch-can pave
ment of Fifth street has one friend at
least. He is Edward J. Finck. of 306
Main street, and he thinks that Fifth,,
from Irving to Jefferson streets, the por
tion soon to be improved with bltullthlc
pavement, is good enough for him. Holes
and boulders there may be on Fifth
street, even, under the windows of the
City Hall, but Mr. Finck doesn't want
the mountain ranges disturbed.
Mr. Finck didn't take time to get up
a remonstrance against the improvement.
but yesterday he filed a communication
for 'the ear of the Council, In part as
"Tho street is In better condition even
now after many years or service than
many of the streets lately improved and
rapidly deteriorating. I have never heard
any complaints about this street and con
clude that the proposed new paving of a
street in as good condition as Fifth street
Is unnecessary and uncalled for."
Before the petition for the Improve
ment of Fifth street was presented as
surance was given by Its promoters that
practically all the property affected was
represented upon the document.
SCHEME IS A SWINDLE.
Jury Finds That Quatsoes Cannot
Collect on Dickson's Notes.
In the case of L. P. and J. E. Quatsoe,
representing a Chicago advertising com
pany, against G. W. Dickson, to recover
$52 on two promissory notes with 8 per
cent Interest for two years, together with
?15 attorney fees, tried yesterday in the
East Side Justice Court, the Jury was
only out long enough to write out a ver
dict for the defendant, declaring that
the notes were without consideration.
In 1901 tho Quatsoes placed their adver
tising scheme with a considerable number
of Portland business houses by depositing
with them tickets, which were to be
given out to customers and which were
to be voted on three pianos, deposited
with C. A. Whale. The Quatsoes also
agreed to advertise tho places where the
tickets were to be had. A contest was to
be gotten up among the members of
Portland secret societies to win the
pianos. J. W. SIngletary, W. H. Markell.
William H. Taylor, John P. Sharkey and
some other business men on the East Side
entered into contracts to give out the
tickets, they to pay the Quatsoes accord
ing to agreement for the benefit obtained.
Dickson, however, was the only one who
gave notes. All the others repudiated the
John P, Sharkey testified that he Inves
tigated and found that the Quatsoes
failed utterly to comply with their agree
ment. The pianos agreed on were not
placed on deposit, and he refused to go
ahead with the scheme. He said he gave
out none of the tickets. The other busl-.
ness men testified that the Quatsoes
failed to carry out their agreement and
that they had repudiated the agreements.
The defendants, who were represented
by attorney, relied on the face of the
two promissory notes. Henry McGinn,
attorney for Mr. Dickson, denounced the
Quatsoes in the strongest language, de
claring that their whole scheme was a
swindle with which they buncoed business
men of Portland and elsewhere. Mr. Mc
Ginn declared that he had had much to
do with criminals In tho course of his
practice, but he had never encountered
such a barefaced swindling proposition.
The case of the Quatsoes against W. H.
Eggleston, a similar proceedings, v. as
carried to the Suprome Court, where the
decision was favorable to defendants.

Owners Will Move From Mllwaukle
to Clackamas River.
The powder-houses, located on tho
Southern Pacific Railway inside the cor
porate limits of Mllwaukle, are to be va
cated by June 1, and two brick buildings
will be occupied as depositories at a
point on the Southern Pacific Railway
four miles from Mllwaukle, and near tho
Clackamas station. Here the California
Powder Company, which controls the de
positories, has secured a ten-acre tract
GUman Parker has completed the grad
ing, and yesterday began hauling brick
for tho buildings.
This ends a long contest waged by Mll
waukle people against having the pow
der depositories In their midst, which
resulted In the incorporation of Mllwau
kle so that the companies having powder
in the buildings could be forced to va
cate, and tho first ordinance passed by
the Mllwaukle Council limited the amount
of explosives that could be kept inside
the city limits. Mayor William Schlndler
and the California Powder Company made
an agreement and the company gave a
bond of 51000 to move by June 1, and this
it is preparing to do. After incorporation
the company admitted defeat.
With the menace of the depositories re
moved tho people hope to see the pioneer
town grow. At the new site there are few
houses and the place will be nearly as
convenient to Portland powder firms as
tho Mllwaukle site.
Mllwaukle Orders a Polltax.
At a meeting of Mllwaukle Council
Thursday night. Mayor William Schlndler
prosidlng, an ordinance was passed under
suspension of tho rules to provide for the
collection of $2 polltax Inside the city
limits. Marshal Kelso was authorized to
proceed with collection of this tax.
Consideration of tho water franchise of
B. M. Fish was laid over until Thursday,
April 28. The water committee and Mr.
Fish are not agreed on one point in re
gard to the value of tho pumping station
to be Included In the city's option. The
amended ordinance excludes the territory
of T. R. A. Sellwood and all the territory
east of the Southern Pacific Railway.
Mayor Schlndler thought an agreement
with Mr. Fish could be arrived at by the
' East Side Notes.

ATTACK MADE IN COURTS
Test Case Made With View to Hav

In Both Laws.
The constitutionality of the statute
licensing and regulating the plumbing
trade and licensing plumbers is to be
tested. The law Is alleged to be similar
to the barber's act, which Judge George
recently decided was not constitutional
because It authorizes the State Board of
Barber Examiner to adopt rules and reg
ulations providing what qualification bar
bers must possess to entitle them to work
at the trade. The court held that It Is

for the Legislature to say what qualifica
tions are necessary, and that the Legis
lature cannot delegate Its powers to a
board of examiners.
In the act to license plumbers, It Is
said, the Legislature has again delegated
its powers to a board, and the law Is said
to be subject to othor legal objections.
In order to bring the matter before tho
courts, Paxton, Beach & Simon, attor
neys, caused A. Claussenlus, Jr., to be ar
rested and convicted in the Municipal
Court yesterday on a charge of violating
the plumbing statute. Yesterday after
noon the attorneys Hied a petition for a
writ of habeas corpus in behalf of Claus
senlus In the State Circuit Court, and
when the petition comes up for argument
the constitutional question will be raised
In support of the Issuance of the writ.
The case will no doubt be carried to tho
Supreme Court for a final decision.
Claussenlus is at liberty on bonds.
REUNITED THROUGH A CHILD
The Shepards End War of Litigation
by Marrying Again.
Cora B. Shepard and her husband,
Robert R. Shepard, from whom she -was
divorced, have been reunited through tho
love of both for their child, lone, a
golden-haired little girl 3 years old. The
parents were remarried yesterday morn

Thto divorce was granted In Colorado
Springs some months ago, and tho father
was given .temporary possession of tho
child, but the final decision of the Col
orado Court concerning- Its legal custody
was in favor of the mother. Shepard was
deeply attached to his little daughter,
and on the morning the divorce decree
was announced he left Colorado for Seat
tle, taking lone with him.
Mrs. Shepard employed detectives, who
In course of time located the father In
Seattle, and Mrs. Shepard, on learning
this, went there at once. She found out
that Shepard had been apprised of her
coming, and had moved to Portland. She
followed him hither and a Deputy Sheriff
finally discovered his whereabouts. He
was arrested on a charge of kidnaping,
and Mrs. Shepard, through attorneys,
also filed habeas corpus proceedings to
regain possession of the child, which tho
father had placed in the care of a family
near Oregon City, The case was tried
before Judge Cleland, who awarded tho
custody of the child to the mother, but
she did not push the kidnaping charge.
Mrs. Shepard saw lone In the courtroom
at the time of the habeas corpus pro
ceedings, and she was naturally over
joyed at the meeting, but her joy was
turned to sadness when the court de
cided that, pending an appeal to the Su
preme Court, taken by the father, the
child would have to remain In the cus
tody of the Boys' and Girls' Aid Society.
The Shepards met a mutual friend here,
and he Is reported to have Interested
himself to bring them together again, not
believing their former differences were as
great as they imagined. They met and
talked It over, and agreed to a second
union. After the marriage ceremony
Judge Cleland made an order giving lone

to the Supremo Court will be dismissed.

IN BORROWED PLUMAGE
UNGRATEFUL TRAMP STRUTS
ONE BRIEF HOUR.
Then Owner of the Clothes Fights
for Them, Both Go to Jail and
Judge Hogue Does the Rest.
New Spring clothes have brought sorrow
to John Grady and a term In the City
Jail to Joe McHale. It happened thus:
John Grady, being an accountant and a
m&n of pride In his personal appearance,
scraped together enough money Thursday
afternoon to Invest In some new clothes.
Attired In his new apparel, John walked
about town until late at night, treating
the girls on Washington street to the
eight of himself. Then he started to his
home in a lodging-house at Sixth street
across from the Union depot.
Grady had got half way home when a
disheveled and distressed person ap
proached and in tearful tones recited a
hard-luck oration with the climax com
posed of a request for the orlce of a
bed. John was touched. He rammed his
hands down In his pockets to give the
distressed wayfarer what he asked for.
But with dismay he found he was penni
less. He had spent his last dollar for
his spick-and-span new clothes.
"Never mind, my good fellow, .you can
come and sleep In by room. I have a sofa
that you may rest on," said the tender
hearted John. For the acquisition of the
new clothes had left him at peace with
the whole world, and ho thought he ought
not to see this fellow mortal suffer for
Through the long night tho two men
slept John In his down bed In the sweet
repose that Is said to be the complement
of a good conscience. The wayfarer lay
on the cot, but his sleep was less tran
quil. Visions of himself In an Immaculate
new Spring suit rushed through his trou
bled brain until ho could withstand the
temptation to satisfy his vanity no longer.
He arose quietly at 3 A. M., donned his
host's nfew clothes, white shirt necktie,
shoes, underclothing and hat, and saun
tered out among the cool night zephyrs.
Grady awakened from his dreams at the
break of day, when his ears were greeted
by the orchestra of the birds. He
strotched himself lazily and then turned
to wish his guest good morning, feeling
that all the pleasantness possible should
be brought Into the life of the fate
He noted with dismay that the fellow
was gone. With a feeling of horror he
sprang for his new Spring clothes. There
was nothing there but a pile of Ill-appearing
rags. John ran hla hand hurriedly
to his face and hair to see If he had
been the victim of another Rip Van
Winkle episode. But his face was smooth
shaven and his hair was well trimmed.
There was only one other conclusion to
About this time Grady's Ire arose. Ho
drew on the rags. They were many times
too large for him, and he looked dis
reputable In them, but he did not pause
for that There was murder in Grady's
He rushed about from street to street
until about 7 o'clock he saw a tall, clumsy
Individual with a new Spring suit on.
The trousers reached to the fellow's
ankles and the sleeves chopped off at his
elbows. Grady attacked the fellow on the
spot, and one of the liveliest scraps on
record followed. Just whore the flght
would have ended can only be surmised,
for both men were holding their own
when Officer Endlcott ran up and put a
stop to it
"Officer, this tramp attacked me,'' said

his tattered victim.
"I gave the d ingratc a bed and ho
stole my clothes. He's the tramp him
self," thundered Grady.
Officer Endlcott took both men to the
City Jail and they were arraigned later
In Police Court where the trouble was
sifted out by District Attorney Adams.
The two men went Into the prisoners'
booth and exchanged clothes, after which
Grady was freed, for Judge Hogue held
that a man was justified In fighting an
Ingrate for his clothes.
McHale, the tramp, was held to answer
to a charge of larceny.

HINTS FOR THE DAILY MENU
STROLL through the Portland mar
kets these bright Spring days makes
one feel that the sun has been shining
and the gardens growing for months past,
for In the fresh greenness of the new
vegetables displayed with the lavlshness
of midsummer there Is no hint of the
gloom of many rains. ' Great heaping
boxes of crisp and curly lettuce tempt
one to purchase many heads at the low
price of five cents, and the bunches of
watercress also come In for their share
of attention. Fresh spinach at S cents
the pound and mustard greens at five.
Spring onions and radishes are to be had
in plenty. Tho new tomatoes are sound
and well-ripened for table use, but are
high, bringing 25 cents the pound. A
pound will go a long ways, however, If
judiciously mixed with lettuce or cucum
bers, and makes a Spring salad well
worth the cost. Asparagus Is In Its prime.
It is sound and tender and unusually
large. At 10 cents It cannot be out of
tho reach of families who serve a mod
erate table. The artichokes are much
larger and more perfect than they were
two weeks ago, and are now selling at
10 cents each. New string beans, new
peas at 10 cents, rhubarb at five, new
potatoes at five and cauliflower at 10 cents
the plant give the housewife ample range
In yegetables for her table.
Tho fish market Is also well supplied,
shad being the choicest variety at this
particular season. Herring and perch
make delicious pan fish and arc now In
good condition. Flounder, striped bass,
and the old standbys sole, hallDut and
Chinook salmon, are plentiful. Crabs
are good now, and the California shrimps
and lobsters make a pleasing variety,
Little Neck and Razor clams are both to
All those, in addition to the supplies
of the regular meat market, and the
chickens, ducks, turkeys and geese should
enable the most fastidious to set a table
fit for the gods.

WITNESSES WEKE DTOTffTES.
Former Stenographer of Hyde Tells
More of Alleged Land Frauds.
SAN FRANCISCO, April 15. When the
hearing of the Hyde-Diamond land case
was resumed today before United States
Commissioner Heacock, Mrs. Belle Cur
tis, Hyde's former stenographer, was re
called. She recounted much of her for
mer testimony, incriminating Hyde with
tho irregular manner In which the appli
cations for lands were signed. She told of
a certain letter which was purported to
have been signed by Mr. Dimond. The
document mentioned was one supposed to
be an agreement entered Into by Hyde
and Benson whereby their interests could
be polled. She further testified that she
had never seen Mrs. Elizabeth Dimond,
who had signed many documents, nor did
the witness know If she ever existed. She
had been told by Miss Farwell that some
of tho witnesses were dummies.
Henry P. Dimond was called to the
stand by his attorney, Charles "Wheeler.
After stating that he first met Hyde on
June 1, 1901, Dimond said:
"Hydo and I became acquainted socially.
Ho said he had paid some large fees to
attorneys In "Washington to do work In
land cases. He asked me If I could do
the work. I told him I might study up
on the question, and he retained me for
one year, my private practice to continue
at the same time. I was asked if I would
go to "Washington, and I told him that I
would. I never saw Btfnson before that
time, and I did not know I would be con
nected with him In any way. Then I
moved to Hyde's office. On August 20 or
21 I left for "Washington. My compensa
tion was fixed at 51S0O per annum. Dur
ing my employment I incorporated some
companies for other clients. "This was
done by brother attorneys. Then I made
a study of tho land decisions. I never
made applications for land nor have I over
taken up the land. I do pot know of Eliz
abeth Dimond. She Is not a relative of
mine and I have never seen her."
"What was tho naturo of Hyde's busi
ness?" "At that time I did not know, but I saw
a circular issued by Hyde which stated
that he had lands for sale, and that for
an additional fee Hyde would attend to
tho case In "Washington. I mot Joost H.
Schneider through Mr. Hyde at Gllroy.
"We had no conversation concerning land
deals. I met John A. Benson In Hyde's
office. I think Hydo Introduced us. and I
think I saw him only three times before I
went to "Washington, and at that time I

did not know that Benson was connected
with the forest reserves."
An objection to this line of evidence was
"I did not know that Benson was In
troduced at that time, but I did later.
But I did not know that I was to act In
any way as Benson's atorney. I wa3
never Informed that there were any clerks
In Washington that I could procure secret
information from nor any one ele. Thero
were no instructions that I could not fol

Dimond then flatly contradicted tha
statement of William E. Valk that Di
mond had given him a letter. He had re
ceived letters of Introduction, but they
were of a personal nature.
AT WORK IN BUILDING TRADES
Committee Has in Charge Reorgan
ization of the Council.
There may not be a rejuvenation and
rehabilitation of the Building Trades'
Council this year. The Federated Trades
Council has the matter pretty well in
hand, representatives of the building
trades being members. A committee has
been appointed to look after the affairs
of these unions. It consists of one man
from each of the unions of the following
trades: Plasterers, painters, carpntcs.
sheetmetal workers, lathers, bulldirg la
borers, electrical workers, bricklayers,
plumbers and bridge and structural Iron
workers. There Is a chance, though, that
these unions may organize on their own
account and act apart from the Federated
Since Its reorganization the Federated
Trades Council has made rapid prog
ress, and i3 now on a far better basis
that it has been for several months. The
printing trades and the manufacturing
trades are lining up with the other unions
In the council and the organization Is be
coming perfected. Certain Important com
mittees have been appointed to further
tho Interests of the council, principally
that on organization, with H. A. Duk
as chairman, and the committee on label
agitation with H. G. Parsons as chair
man. The legislative committee has not
been appointed yet.
The bakers and leatherworkers, who arc
out on strike, made no report to the coun
cil last night as no particular progress
towards settlement of their strikes had
been reached and neither was prepared
to ask for any favor of the council.
