REAKS IN DOORS
Raid on Chinatown.

Before crowds -of several (thousand peo
ple. Sheriff Word and his deputies yes
terday afternoon and evening made a
(tour of Chinatown and battered down
and took away in express wagons the
strong xloors guarding the entrances to
Ethe gambling-houses. One Celestial,
"Way Wah, was caught with lottery tick-
rets In his possesion and was arrested,
K&fterward being released on bonds by
f Justice Held. Tho Sheriff terrorized
Chinatown completely, entering every
Lgambllng-house but five, all on Second
wtreet, between Morrison and Plnei
fc. Shortly after ? o'clock the Sheriff and
tils deputies left the County Jail, going
immediately to the corner of Second and
'Morrison streets. They were armed with
: "wagon followed and Btood on the corner
waiting for developments.
One of the establishments conducted by
Xrcc Mee Gin, at Second and Morrison,
was the first to feel the strength of the
Sheriffs arm. Deputies entered tho dark
hallway, camo to the strong door, bat
tered it down without hesitation and
carted it into the street, where . it was

wagon to pick up. While this was going

Celestial was May Wah, and he was
promptly placed under arrest and taken
to the County Jail, afterward being re
leased on bonds by Justice Reld.
From the establishment of Lee Mee
Gin the deputies advanced down Second
street, their strength divided Into three
separate companies, each acting inde
pendently of the other, in order that the
work might be quicker and the Celestials
taken by surprise. It was evident at
first that the Chinamen were of the opin
ion that the raid was to include but one
or two houses, as former raids have done,
but in this they were rapidly disillusion
ed. As fast as the deputies could tear
away the doors they were thrown into
the street and picked up by the express
wagon. One crowd of deputies took in
one side of the street and Sheriff Word
and the remainder of the force gave their
attention to the remaining side. Crowds
began to gather and match the work of

TO CHANGE CHARTER
Amendments to Be Considered
at Conference .
MEETING CALLED BY BOARD
Members of the Multnomah Legisla
tive Delegation WIIJ Confer With
MenWho Framed the Permit
, for Portland to Exist.
To rdetermlne what charter amendments
would be good and what bad, members of
the Legislature from this county will'con-
fer with the framers of the instrument
in the City Council chamber next Thurs
day evening. The charter was drafted
two years ago by a board appointed by
the preceding Legislature and was en
acted at the Legislative session of 1903.
It has proved Itself a worthy instrument
and only few chances as to minor de
tails will be made.
The charter board is taking this action
evidently to ward off any radical altera
tions and to Inform the lawmakers just
where they ought to tinker and -where
they ought to hold hands off. The meet
ing has been called by A. L. Mills, who
was president of the board.
Whatever the changes, they "will prob
ably be submitted to a referendum vote
of electors "of the city for ratification
at the municipal election next June
that Is If the election shall not be deferred
until the following year The question
of postponing the election is the most
important that has come up, but the
change is not likely to be adopted. One
of the chief alms of the board was to
separate municipal from state and Na
An amendment will be offered and
doubtless adopted for lessening the cost
of advertising special assessments made
for street improvements. An attempt
may be made to authorize a higher tax
levyt but It will probably not avail even
though advocated by Mayor Williams,
for other members of the city government
and prominent political leaders are op
posed. The present limit Is seven mills,
unless payments of interest on bonded
debt may require a higher tax. A plan
will be suggested for Improving several
streets within a given districts all "at
the same time Instead of one thorough
fare. The present system entails hard
ships upon property-owners along an Im
proved street, since traffic gravitates to it
from poor streets and the life of the im
provement is curtailed.

Magic Hand of Belasco.
When the magic hand of David Belasco
penned "The Girl I Left Behind Me" It

drama the playwright seems to have had
a desire to give his audience a succession
of genuine American patriotic thrills, no
adorned his admirable story with the ac
coutrements of war, taking for his locale
the wilds of Montana at the time of tne
Blackfoot Indian uprising. Then he cre

yarn of a Southern girl loving a Union
officer, but a Lieutenant In Uncle Sam's
Army who desperately loves the daughter
of his superior officer, wmie tne latter nas

Fyles military drama have kept tne pa
trons of the Columbia Theater in a stato

heart interest. And there is not a man or
