NEW OFFICE CREATED Ordinance
for building Inspector, to be appointed
by the Mayor and to draw a salary of
$100 a month, passed.
BONDS FOR INSPECTORS Joseph
"Weber's ordinance requiring bonds from
sewer and street Inspectors Is passed.
John P. Sharkey's all-night saloon ordi
nance -was defeated by one vote in the
Council vesterday. The junketing trip to
Los Angeles was first authorized, 5S0Q
being appropriated for the purpose of de
fraying the expenses of the trip, but the
ordinance was a few minutes later re
pealed, when Councllmen Sharkey and
Zimmermen changed their votes to the
negative.
"What promised to be an Important
measure was Mr. Sharkey's introduction
of an ordinance permitting saloons to re
main open between the hours of 1 A. M.
and 5 A. M.
Backed by Councllmen Zimmerman and
Merrill, Mr. Sharkey made a strong ef
fort to force the resolution through the
meeting. Mr. Flegel attempted to have
the matter referred to the liquor license
committee arguing that the ordinance
proposed wbb a new one that he had not
yet soon. Others felt that there was no
necessity of referring to any committee
and to expedite matters Mr. Sharkey
moed that the proposition be considered
bv the Council as a committee of the
whole. This received, almost unanimous
support and Mayor Williams stepped
down from the chair in favor of Mr. Zim
merman. . A.
After much desultory discussion the
committee of the whole, excepting Messrs.
Flegel and Albee. decided in favor of the
resolution. Sentiment was from all ap
....mtikko oc-nJnsf thfi reform element.
The concensus of opinion seemed to point
- f0 that Mftssrs. Albee and Fle-
i nTrn rnrtp.n.vorlnsr to defeat what
promised to be an excellent method of
obtaining xevenuc for the city's coffers.
Flegel Opposes Ordinance.
r .innu think that this ordinance
should be forced upon the minority," ar
gued Flegel. "I am opposed to an all
night saloon ordinance, always have been
and always will be."
-There is no minority as far as I can
yoe. The Council seems to be evenly dl--..ioi
-mQworwi President Zimmerman.
Mr. Flegel would think a little more
of business and less of religion, cnippea
4, rmr.-fliimiin Merrill suggestively. This
nntnni iihr -was received by Mr
Flegel with stolid indifference, but was
created with a laugn Dy an omers.
Several of the Councllmen were osten-
Fibly .reliably informed as to certain con
ditions from sources they did not divulge.
t am wllaMr informed." said Mr.
ch.rVor "th.at from 30 to 50 saloons are
open part of the time every night after
hours, and I have passea saioons iui
Annn insd. but there were men
drinking inside. The city doesn't derive
nnv revenue from that- The umer ot
Tniin tnfnmn mo that the Police Depart'
mcnt would be greatly benefited by such
on nnHnanrA because OeODle WOO nOW
-n.ar.ir nimlRslv around the streets
would have a place to go."
"QninnriM Wea." s creed Mr. Albee. mu
jbingly. "We should have all the footpads
Tocistercd and licensed. That wouia oe
revenue, you know."
'r nm wltahlv informed." said Mr.
trwfti "that. the. Chief of Police knows
that saloons are open after hours. As a
matter of fact, 1 Know tnat nis men s
tn( fhncn calnnna aftftr hours. Come tO

iirr iiimsoir lias been in saloons after
hours."
Saloon ' Resolution Defeated.
Finally the favorable report of the com
mfiA nrpspntefl o the Council for
its pleasure and defeated. The vote stood
o to 4. Messrs. aicrnii. snarecy. .linnicr
w.o hft-Ati- Trntinir for the resolu

Jtumeiin ana -a wee against.
Aft- -mat-hii oonld not resist the tcmpta
tlon of putting in the final word. To the(
nil hn said:
"Table the resolution until the next
meeting, so you can seo Jack Juatthews
and find out what he did at the legis
lature."
Junket Is Defeated.
nwHTmrr 14.443. authorizing an an
,propr!atlon of $1500 to pay for the Los
Angeles junket, was repealed unanl
mnmiiv n'nrt it nflw ordinance annroDri-
atlng 5800 passed. Upon the defeat of
Sharkey's resolution, he rcquesrcu per-
in'tccliiii to fhanim his vote unon this
ordinance. The request was granted
and supplemented Dy iouis dimmer-,
nan' rnmiftst tfl chance his ballot.
The measure was hopelessly defeated.
"I just wanted to show thcih what
we could do," said Mr. Zimmerman
after adjournment. To Mr. Flegel, John
i ShnrVflV Raid;
"I'll tell you why I changed my vote.
I dldn t want to ride in me same car
with some of the peoplo that wero go-
, lng. I'm going1 to i-os -ongeics ana
' rtav mv own oinonses."
The request of the Health-Board for
money with which to repair the gar
bage crematory was the occasion fr
much discussion, which finally resulted

the construction of the First-street
bridge across Aiarquam juicii. iouis
immnrman suecrcstcd that the mat
ter bo tabled pending the result of a
bill boforo the .Legislature.
' "I seo no necessity of holding this
matter up," said Mr. Flegel. "That bill
is to pay for bridges that aro con
J...t,i ir ihf future, nnd I think the
First-street bridge does uot stand a
ghost of a show of being benefited by
its passage,"
You don't know what's In that bill,"
said Louis Zimmerman.
'Of courst I do,' answered Mr.
Flegel.
T do, but you don't," yelled Mr. Zim
merman.
"Gentlemen," interposed Mayor "Wil
liams, and quiet was restored. The
matter was tabled.
Mat Foeller Introduced a resolution
for an ordinance making It unlawful
for persons to operate slot machines
of any description. This was referred
to the license committee.
Hawkers' Ordinance Tabled.
A resolution for an ordinance pre
venting: the congregation of hawkers
and fakers about the entrances of the
Lewis and Clark Fair grounds was so
sweeping in its provisions that it was
tabled to afford Councilman Bentley an,
opportunity to examine it before vpt-ing.
Charles S. Blhler's claim against the
city, amounting to $226.65, for profes
sional services as consulting engineer
in the bridge controversy, was held up.
as it had not been approved by any of
the committees. A number of other
claims were ordered paid.
An ordinance granting a franchise
to the Northern Pacific Terminal Com
pany for the construction of a siding
on Eleventh street was passed. Ac
cording1 to Mr. Humclln, this matter
had been discussed by the street com
mittee for the past eigne months, and
for that reason he did not see why
Louis Zimmerman's motion to have it
re-referred to the street committee
should be honored.
Building Inspector Authorized.
The .office of "Building Inspector"
was created by an ordinance. He will
be appointed by the Mayor and his sal-
lory will be $100 a month. His duties
will be to examine all plans and spe
cifications which heretofore devolved
upon the Chief of the Fire Department
and those Immediately under him. To
enforce the new building ordinance the
creation of this office was deemed ad
visable. To assist in making the new
capacity self-supporting the fees for
building permits have been changed to
read as follows:
For buildings costing' less than $2,000
a fee of $1 will be charged, between
$2000 and $5000 a fee or Between
$5000 and $10,000 a fee of $3, between
$10,000 and $20'.000 a fee of $5, and all
over $20,000 a fee of $10. This was ac
complished by amending section 1 of
ordinance 14.109.
Contrary to expectations, the ordi
nance prohibiting the specifying of
patented articles for street and sewer
Improvements and permitting competi
tive bidding was not the occasion for
sensational pro and con arguments.
The matter was quietly referred to the
street committee.
Inspectors to Give Bonds.
Joseph "Weber's ordinance requiring
bonds from sewer and street inspectors
was passed unanimously.
All improvements on Holladay av
enue were rescinded and two new prop
ositions submitted. One abolishes the
improvement on certain blocks and the
other provides for a wood block pave
ment on concrete for two blocks, commencing-
at the steel bridge, the rest
of the thoroughfare to Grand avenue
to be of the bitullthlc pavement. Both
propositions were referred to the street
committee.
Petitions for street and sewer im
provements and permits to erect signs
and lights were either granted or re
ferred to the various committees.
BUSY POLICE COURT SESSION
Grind of Criminal Cases Continues for
Seven Hours.
Yesterday's session of the Municipal
Court "was one of the longest on roc
drd. It was 10 A. 1L when Judge
Hogue called the court to order, and
nearly 5 oclock In the afternoon be
fore the tired officials and witnesses
were allowed to depart. The morning
is taken up in listening to cases
coming under the city ordinances and
during the afternoon a number of state
cases were heard.
When tho case of Anna Chrlstenson,
Ralph McCreery and H. Howell,
charged with using profane language,
was called, tho daughter of the Chrls
tenson woman, who was the most im-
nortant witness subpenaed, was not In
court and Judge Hogue ordered her ar
rested for contempt of court. The
crirl was told to be present, but it is
said she had gone to Vancouver, at the
request of her mother. The case was
continued until this morning.
F. W. Gully pleaded guilty to a
charge of assault and battery, and was
ordered to pay a fine of $o0.
Harry Scott, charged with larceny of
a lot of carpenter tools, pleaded guilty
and was siven 12 months in the County
Jail.
The preliminary examination of Tom
Murphy and James Grafton, alleged to
have robbed two Jewish peddlers, at
Second and Grant streets, Monday
night, was commenced and a number
of witnesses for tno prosecution exam
ined. The peddlers identified tho de
fendants as their assailants and De
tective Kerrigan told of their arrest,
after which the hearing' was continued
until this morning.
MOTHER DESERTED BY HER. SON
Aged "Woman Left to the Charity of
Neighbors.
A pitiful tale was told the police offi
cials yesterday afternoon by Mrs. Isabclle
"Woolsoy. a woman nearly 80 years of
age, of desertion by her son, Albert Wool
sey. The old lady, who is a cripple, is
H-hniK- ritituti. and dependent unon
friends for support since the disappear
ance of the son.
wnniwv Is a familiar flcuro to the no
lice of Portland, having been arrested on
January 26 for vagrancy. At that time he
told Chief of Police Hunt he had a char
coal kiln ready for burning at his home,
two miles south of Holbrook. and had
left his mother alone to como to this city
to sell the product of tho kiln. The Chief
allowed him to go without appearing in
court, but three days later he was again
picked up by tho officers and again
charged with vagrancy. Tho next morn
ing ho repeated to Judge Hogue the samo
story he had told the Chief and thereby
secured his releaso upon a promise to go
home immediately.
According to tho mother's story, Wool
sey left home three weeks ago without
notifying her of his Intentions and she
has had no word from him since. Tho
family with whom she has been living,
near Holbrook, has left there and she
was compelled to come to Portland to
seek her son.
Woolscy Is described as "being about 43
years of age and wears a rough beard.
WARM FEBRUARY "WEATHER
Cold Spell Ends and Sun Shines in
a Cloudless Sky.
The weather man's prediction that Port
land's cold weather was a thing of the
past was fulfilled yesterday. Bright and
clear, with ten hours of sunshlno and a
temperature ranging from 2S to 45 degrees,
the day was an ideal one and presented
but little trace of the recent cold.
The opportunity for skating lasted but
one day and the ico had practically dis
appeared by yesterday. On Tuesday
night the ice on Guild's Lake was so
dangerously thin that the Exposition
guards refused to allow any one -to ven
ture on it.
The forecast for this vicinity is for
fair weather, although rain may be ex
pected in another day or two.
