Drawbridges as an Obstruction
A Front-street business man who has
purchased a residence in a ploasdnt tract
on the Bast Side has been trying to induce
his partner to locate near him. and yes
terday took him over to show him a de
slrable place and explain its advantages
to H"- He was hopeful of accomplishing
his design, as his partner seemed inclined
to accent his views as correct, and all
went well till they reached the "bridge on
their way back, just in time to oe aeiayea
by a steamboat whistling- for the draw.
This was started at once, and It was so
long before the boat had passed through
that the partner became disgusted and re
marked that he thought a home on the
"West Side would suit him well enough.
Then the East Slder had to begin his
work all over again. He explained that
a larce Droportlon of the inhabitants of
New York, Chicago and many other large
cities bad to cross drawbridges in going
from their homes to their business, and
that ithe delay, which is occasionally
lonsrer than it oucht to be. was not serious
and was offset by more room, less noise
and other advantages. He also said that
there would soon be a vast improvement
In regard to the operating of drawbridges
here. Some arrangements would be mane
with steamboatmen to secure this. Boats
running ud the river would be induced to
have their docks as far uptown as possj-
Die, ana tnoae going down river tne ap
petite. The length of time draws re
main open could be materially shortened
If boats would wait till they were through,
one draw before whistling for another,
which was. not really necessary. Of
course, -all these things could be brought
about by arrangement with steamboat
men, and It was probable that some ar
rangement could be made to have all or
nearly all boats pass the draws at cer
tain hours, so as not to substruct the
passage of the bridges at the hours when
people were coming down town or going
home. The partner said that, when these
arrangements were brought about, he
would probably take up his residence on
the East Side.
DYNAMITE SHOOK CITY.
Work on Morrison-Bridge Piers Ex
plains Supposed Earthquake Shock.
Five-pound charges of dynamite, explod
ed under one of the old Morrison-bridge
piers during the past two days are re
sponsible for the shocks felt in different
parts of the city and believed to be earth
quakes. An old pier, the construction of
which was commenced In 1SS2, and which
was never completed, owjng to an injunc
tion obtained against the Paclnc? Bridge
Company by the City Council, lies directly
In the spot where a new pier is to be in
stalled for the new Morrison bridge, and
the dynamite Is being exploded under the
water in order to loosen and break up the
pier, so it can be removed. The -veiglit of
tue 60 reet or water above tho dvnamlte

for the unusually heaty shock.

PRESIDENT OF MORMON CHURCH VISITS PORTLAND

continuance for the reason that the
facts are plain, the witnesses easy to
secure, and there is no better time to
dispose of the case than now.
The defense has not been hinted at.
but there Is a guess that the Insanity
dodge will be attempted.
Yesterday morning was the time fixed
for Gugllelmo to plead, and his attorney,
Albert Ferrera, appeared ana niea a
motion to quash the Information on tho
ground that It is defective because the
name of George E. Chamberlain appears
upon It as District Attorney in the
printed form, as well as that, of John
Manning. This Is because the old blanks
used by Mr. Chamberlain when he was
District Attorney are still in use. This
objection Is trivial.
Mr. Ferrera also objected to the infor
mation and argued that it was Illegal and
asserted that Gugllelmo cannot be tried
for murder except on an indictment re
turned by a grand jury, according to a
provision of the Constitution of the United
States, which reads: "No person shall be
held to answer for a capital or other
wise Infamous crime unless on a present-.
ment or Indictment by a grand jury."
Counsel also called attention of the court
to another article of the Constitution,
which provides: "No state shall make or
enforce any law which shall abridge the
privileges or Immunities of citizens of the
United States, nor shall any state deprive
a man of life, liberty or property without
due process of law, nor deny to any per
son within its jurisdiction the equal pro
tection of the laws."
Mr. Ferrera admitted that the Oregon
Supreme Court has held the information
law to be good, but said the question had
not been passed upon by the United States
Supreme Court, and to that tribunal the
case would be brought.
DeDUty District . Attorney Adams con
tended that the Constitutional provision
concerning indictments or presentments
by a grand jury applies only to the Fed
The motion and demurrer were argued
at 2 o'clock. Mr. Ferrera argued that the
Information charged two crimes, murder
In the first degree and murder in the sec
ond degree. The Information, he said,
sets up all the facts of murder In the
first degree and to It are aaded these
words, "and murdered her. These words,
counsel said, should be used only in in

fense was only trying to have the trial

court that he was not feeling well and

granted a continuance until Monday
morning to do so.
SUES J. A. ARMSTRONG FOR $1100
George P. Tolton Gave Him Money to
Buy Horses, but Got None.
George P. Tolton, who says he gave J. A.
Armstrong $1100 at Baker City on April
25, 1904, to pay as part of the purchase
price of 000 horses to be bought from Mrs.
Shane at Ontario, has instituted suit
against Armstrong In the State Circuit
Court to recover the money. The Sheriff
was instructed by Miller & Miller, attor
neys for Tolton, to attach and seize 13
head of horses In a livery stable In Port
land, but H. W. Davis says he Is the
owner of them, and has cued the Sheriff
to compel their return-
Armstrong Is said to hold a position of
inspector of stock In British Columbia, for
which he receives a large salary. He ob
tained leave of absence for six months
and came to Oregon. He talked Tolton
Into buying the GOO horses from Mrs.
Shane, telling him It was a good specula
tion, and gave Tolton a receipt for the
money, which the latter still holds and
which is all he ever got for the amount.
The Deputy Sheriffs have been unable to
locate Armstrong, and he Is supposed to
be in hiding.

Jailer Jackson said there had been some
repairs made, and the new locks were
put on as part of this work. He stated
further, however, that it was perfectly
proper to separate the Jail from the kitch
en, just the same as if the kitchen was
located at Mount Tabor.
Judge Webster said: "The only Idea In
this work is to make the Jail and the
kitchen two separate departments in fact
as well as in theory."

Schneider supported the Republican ticket

and has been provided for.

R0AEED MANY A SALUTE.
Breech of Cannon Used in Pioneer
Days Given Historical Society. -
PORTLAND. June 12, (To the Editor.)
There is in the possession of the Kelly
ramily a relic of early Oregon, the ricn
historic value of which will doubtless
prove of Interest to many pioneers and
native sons and daughters. Since the dfeath
of Mrs. Sarah M. Kern It has been do
elded by her descendants and relatives to
give the keeping of this treasure over to
the Oregon Historical Society, so I trust
twit a lew words of explanation will not
te am.ss-at this time.
During the past Winter, or early Sprintr.
The Oregonian, In recalling events of EO
years ago, made mention of an ancient
cuLvenn, wnicn 3tooa on tne levee or
common, c.beur Front. First. Yamhill and
Taylor streets, and v-hich was used for
firing salutes to Incoming ships.
When, whence or by whom this warrior
was brought to Portland we have no ex
act knowledge, but there It stood for
years, through sun and shower, to roar a
thunderous welcome to each extraordinary
event, whether it were a new baby In
town, satisfactory election returns, or the
arrival of a ship from San Francisco. He
who had the means to buy the powder had
full right to fire the cannon, and the "un
pretentious village" was often shaken as
the report echoed from the hills and
rolled through every trail of the valley.
un one occasion Hampton, son of Clin
ton Kelly, hadjgone to town with a load
of charcoal, he supplying the blacksmiths
with that commodity, and while attend
ing to affairs at hand he finally allowed
a clamoring group of boys to unhitch his
nxon and drive them down to the river's
edge to drink. Suddenly, for some unac
countaoie reason, tne animals plunced
Into the water, with the heavy hickory
yoke upon their necks, and swam across
to the East Side, then clambered out upon
the bank and made their leisurely way
homeward. The boys In sheer dismay
watcned proceedings In awed silence, till
me oxen were sareiy on the other shore,
then with whoops of relief and keen de
light they, rushed back and fired the can
njn as the grand finale of the day. '
At last the fate of this pioneer was
sealed and It boomed for the setting of lt3
own sun. Tho Joyful news of a successful
election so filled the youth of Portland
with enthusiasm that they came forth a
night and crammed the culverin to the
mouth with rocks, brickbats and sod a
charge which no self-respecting gun could
stand, and with a tremendous crash it
burst and flew In all directions, one piece
burrowing into the bank before "Uncle
Jimmy" Stephens' East Side home. Then
later, from the debris of ancient dorr
