MlLTTATJKIE ELECTION WILL BD HOT
Contest. The main contest in the Mll
waukie election is between the village
blacksmith. Cap Kerr, and the cheese
maker, William Schindler. the present in
cumbent of the mayoralty. Mr. Kerr
heads the Independent and Mayor Schin
dler the Citizens' ticket. The former has
a blacksmith shop on Main street, where
he has been located for a number of years.
Mayor Schindler has been a resident for
the past 20 years, and owns considerable
property in Mllwaukie. Yesterday the
campaign In the old town was begun in
earnest, and very few of the candidates on
either ticket thought much about church
or Sunday school. It will be the warmest
contest that has been held, in Mllwaukie
since incorporation. There is no money
in any of the offices except in that of
Recorder and Marshal, and there is very
little for these, but the honor is consid
ered very great and sufficient compensa
tion for the arduous duties that must be
performed. As the candidates on both
tickets have declared in favor of treating
the electric railway company with fair
ness, the fight is stripped of an issue, and
the result will probably hinge on the per
sonal popularity of the various candidates.
Politics is not mentioned.
Two Saxitakiums at Mount Tabor.
There seems to be a mistaken idea in the
minds of many people in regard to the dls
Unction between the Portland Sanitarium
and the Crystal Springs Sanitarium. These
institutions are both located at Mount
Tabor, but the Portland Sanitarium, that
was formerly located in South Portland, Is
now located in the large red building on
west avenue and Mount Tabor car line.
This institution is in no way connected
with the Mount Tabor Sanitarium and
does not receive Insane patients. This ex
planation is called for because of the idea
prevailing in the minds of so many that
the institution located at "West avenue
was the one that suit was being brought
against by the citizens of Mount Tabor, to
have removed. This is a mistake, as this
institution does not pretend to treat men
tal cases and has never had anything to
do with the Alaska insane patients.
St. Johns Water Tested. Professor

Board of Health, have been making tests

pure and wholesome. These tests were
made at the request of the company to as
certain the cause of some odor arising
from what are called the "dead end"
pipes, where there ,1s little circulation.
Professor Sweetser says that his tests so
far fail to show anything that might
cause disease. He will continue his ex
aminations, and. has secured some cross

On Wednesday evening1 the Portland
delegation of passenger agents; which
will attend the annual convention of
the American Association of Passenger
Agents, which is to meet in the City
of Mexico, will leave the city over the
Southern Pacific for the southern trip.
M. J. Roche, the traveling passenger
agent of the Denver & Rio Grande, and
the local manager and promoter of the
excursion from the Northwest territory,
has been making up a list of those who
will attend the convention. J. H. O'Neill,
traveling passenger agent of the O. R.

Southern trip to the convention city.
A special train will run from Port

cember 2, and joining the main body
of the excursionists at Spo fiord, Tex.
The delegates from the entire North
west territory are pledged to work for
Portland as the convention city of 1905,
and from the assurances given from
the delegates from many sections of the
East there is but little doubt that the
efforts of the Coast delegates will be
successful and that the next meeting
of the traveling agents will be held
here at 3ome time during the Lewis
and Clark Fair.
St. David's Episcopal Commemorates
The services yesterday in St. David's
Episcopal Church, East Twelfth and Bel
mont streets, were largely in commemo
ration of the 34th anniversary of the first
service held, out of which grewthe pres

D. D., rector, preached morning and
evening. At the morning services holy
communion followed the sermon. Under
the charge of Frederick W. Goodrich a
fine musical programme was rendered.
In the evening the "Te Deilm" was finely
rendered under the direction of Mr. Good

large congregations at all the services of

In 1880 a rectory was built on the lot
east of the church. In 1892 the quarter
facing Grand avenue was sold to the

which stands on Belmont and Twelfth

The parish is generally prosperous. Dr.
Van Waters says that so much aid came
from outsiders in completing the edifice
that he feels that It belongs to the whole

BOY POUND INTOXICATED.
Police Using Every Effort to Learn
Saloonkeeper Who Sold the Liquor.
Drunkenness Is running rife among a
certain class of young boys in the city,
and the remedy does not appear. Within
the last few weeks there have been several
cases, one a boy of M., found Intoxicated
on a wharf at the foot of Alder street.
and another of a 12-year-old boy. But
the worst case of all was of a 16-year-old
lad named Hayes, found dead drunk at
Thirteenth and Hoyt streets yesterday af
ternoon. He was so completely Intoxlcat
ed that he did not revive during the night.
His effects disclosed his last name.
Three telephone calls came to the Police
Station in a hurry about 4 o'clock yes

The policeman thought at first that his
quarry had all escaped him until he be

the boys. A heavy breathing attracted his
attention and he found Hayes lying in a.
It was impossible to bring the boy to
life, and even after he had been Jolted

Chief Hunt remarked last night that he

liquor dealers selling liquor to minors and
that in this particular case he will use
every effort to find the man.

The American public should always be
grateful to Clay Clement for writing and,
through a considerable number of years,
appearing in the leading role at a comedy
which is In every respect a thing of
beauty and a joy, it not forever, for such
a period as, the court would designate
as a reasonable time. To have seen
"The New Dominion" under, the Cle
ment auspices was a privilege. If you
missed that pleasure, do the next best
thing. See the Columbia players In it,
for their production is near enough to
Clay Clement's to be very good Indeed.
It must be confessed that the first act
drags painfully. The play gets away as
dolefully as a funeral procession. That
is. It did yesterday. This may have been
because the actors were not sure of
themselves, certainly it Is not the fault
of the play, for It has as good a first
act as most. Probably later In the week
It will go better. For the other three
acts, however, even If one desired to
carp he could find no great fault with It.
Everybody in the cast seems to take a
brace and from the second act to the end
things go with a smoothness which Is
The play depends largely of Baron Ho
henstauften. the lovable German botan
ist, whose delicious blunders with the
English are the first charm of the piece.
It's a difficult role. Clement wrote it
for himself and of course he fitted it to
himself as a tailor might a garment
Edgar Baume undertakes hard work In
essaying It but he succeeds beautifully.
His accent lmnroves wonderfully after
the first act and he gives the lines
splendid reading. He has that great un
ruly voice of his well in hand and his
acting of the part Is one of the most
pleasing of his local achievements.
Perhaps the most satisfactory thing In
the play, next to the leading role. Is the
old negro servant .as William Dills plays
him. Mr. Dills is" back in the cast after
serious illness, and the Columbia pat
rons gave him an ovation yesterday .which
must have touched him deeply. His Uncle
Poly Is very artistic. Donald Bowles, cov
ers himself with glory In the character of
the Infamous Bones. Recently Mr. Bowles
has given us conclusive evidence of his
versatility and this week, while he may
alienate his lady admirers who have made
him their dearest idol, he gives us a new
view of his excellent talents.
Mr Berrell, as the Southern gentleman
of the old regime, is consistent and faith
ful to the traditions. George Bloomquest
gives us another of his thoroughly like
able juvenile characters and Justifies our
confidence In him.
Miss Countiss Is not at her best as
Flora May. This Is not one of the parts
which she does well, and while she works
hard to make the best of an uncongenial
role, her work does not add greatly to the
general excellence of the performance,

the unhappy mountain cousin. Her act
ing is deserving of the warmest commend
ation and her permanent addition to the
company would seem to be a wise move.
Louise Brandt whose hold on Portland
audiences appears to be secure, may well
feel proud of her efforts .this week. She
is seen as a dashing young widow, of
just a bit unconventional Ideas, and she
has the idea of her part down to her fin
gertlps. It gives her another chance to
score heavily and she takes advantage of
it Laurette Allen Is commendably good
as the designing stepmother.
We must all regret the necessity of an
nouncing on the programme that the beer
which the Baron drinks in the second act
is brewed by a certain St Louis firm. If
there was no other way to get the beer.
a popular subscription might have been
tried. Besides, it Is unfair to our local
breweries. Why not let the Baron drink
home-made brand? Now, the public
would like to know what brand of cigar
ettes Donald Bowles smoked as the
naughty villain, and the name of the
whisky Mr. Berrell put Into his mint
Juleps. Also the programme should be
corrected for making It appear that the
action of the piece occurs "in the St
James River. Virginia." Somebody around
tne Columbia should study geography.
both physical and political.
The audiences, in spite of these dls
tressing incidents, were large at both per
formances yesterday. Same bill all week.
