WHAT IS BEING DONE.
Chamber of Commerce holds meeting:
and appoints Improvement board.
Mass meeting for civic improvement
to be called by the Chamber.
Council may consider. Question of bill
boards. Billboards may be abolished by raisin?
license to an exorbitant figure.
People who rofufe to clean up their
property will be prosecuted.
Chief of Police Hunt determined to
force contractors to keep building ma
terials out of streets.
Billboards fnirroundlng vacant lots
found to hide garbage and rubbish..
'There is one way In which the bill
boards can be abolished, and that Is by
raising the license to such a figure that
bill-posting firms cannot afford to oper
ate the boards."
So spoke a member of the Council yes
terday, -when asked what remedy could
be taken to abolish the unsightly signs
that mar the beauty of the City of
Roses. Whether the Council will con
elder the question at the coming meeting
is not at present known, but the Coun
cllmen, headed by the Mayor, are on
record as against the billboard, and stand
for civic improvement in the strictest
6ense of the word. Mayor Williams has
said -that the billboards are unsightly,
and others declare that billboards hide a
multitude of sins and stand between the
garbage ordinance and the enforcement
thereof, by concealing from sight heaps
of garbage and rubbish thrown In vacant
lots surrounded by the boards. Through
out the city this state of affairs prevails.
Cacant lots surrounded by the signboards
are used for dumping grounds. Heaps of
rubbish that would not dare be thrown
on vacant lots did not the boards hide it
from public gaze are to be found In the
center of the city, and within a few
blocks of tne public buildings.
Chamber of Commerce Acts.
Following up its intention of waging
war against all transgressions against
the laws of cleanliness, the Chamber of
Commerce yesterday held a meeting at
which a majority of the members of the
Chamber of Commerce Civic Improve
ment Board were present. A permanent
organization was formed, to be known
as the Chamber of Commerce Improve
ment Association, and with this will, be
merged the Civic Federation, for the
strength that Is to be gained through the
union. The work will be undertaken
along the linos originally laid out by
President W. D. WTieelwrlght, of the

and elected Mr. Wheelwright chairman
and M. Mosossohn secretary. The plan
of campaign was discussed In a general
way and the appointment of subcom
mittees arranged for. the appointments
to bo made public within a short time.
This committee decided that within the
present week. If the Marquam Theater
could be secured for the purpose.
It would call a mass meeting
of the citizens to arrange for
a vigorous campaign in favor of civic
improvement. At this meeting it is
planned to have 500 representative citi
zens present and the club women of the
city. Addresses will be delivered, the
city districted for the war, and com
mittees appointed in each district. Every
effort will be made to get the representa

ested In the movement
It Is intended to secure the services of
a special police officer tb assist in bring
ing before the courts all who disregard
the ordinances regarding civic matters
and to attend to the prosecution of those
who persist in disobeying the law. An
attorney will be employed to give his
entire time to the work and a stenogra
pher will take care of records, warnings,
prosecutions, compile data on exemplary
citizens In this respect, and on those who
are the opposite.
Schedules will be kept of all "building
permits issued, of every Improvement
ordered, of the removal of trees, and
every item that goes to make the city
uglier or mora beautiful. Sub-committees
will be appointed to watch every
branch of civic Improvement, ono will
devote Itself to vacant lots, another to
billboards, still another to trees that need
trimming, and these subcommittees will
act in conjunction with the committees of
the several districts. Special effort will
be put forward to interest women and
children in making their homes more
beautiful. Records of every complaint
will be filed and the history of the case
kept on record until the transgressor
concurs in the will of the association.
The association will also grind an ax
and keep it In readiness for those who
disabuse .the spitting ordinance, enforce
ment of which is lax. This evil will be
under the eye of the association and spe
cial officers will bwoop down upon those
who dare to break the law in this re
spect Chief of Police Hunt will again instruct
his force to enforce the spitting ordi
nance and will see that the officers obey
their orders. The Chief's orders regard

In what manner the bequest to
Green C. Love, made by his father, the
late Captain Lewis Love, shall be con-
'eyed to him by the executors of the
will is ror Judge Webster to decide
The share of Green C Love is one
sixth of the residue of the estate, which
will amount to about $100,000. A codicil
in the will provides that if he shall dlo
without Issue his share shall be di
vided among the other legatees pro
portionately, according to the share
devised to each. Green C. Love alleges
that his sister, Mrs. Mary Stafford, in
fluenced their father, who was S3
years old when he executed the will,
to add this codicil to it. The son on
this ground contested the codicil, and
asks the County Court to decree that
he shall, receive his share absolutely.
The hearing of tho case was concluded
yesterday, and a decision will be ren

Green C Love is 55 years old and his
present wife is No. 3, with whom ho
became acquainted through a newspa

She Is a clever woman and a good mu
sician, but she failed to make a fa
vorable Impression with Captain Love.
Consequently -when he eexcuteel his

effect that the share of her husband
should be entirely Independent of her,

Spiritualist Church. The provision of
the codicil of the will concerning- chil

because only his first wife bore him
children and they have all died. Ho
has grandchildren, but it is a legal
question whether they come within
the terms of the will.
Love's Fancy Needlework.
Mrs, Nannie Flnck, a granddaugh
ter of Captain Love, testified that Cap
tain Lov never approved of his son
Green securing a wife through the me
dium of the advertising columns. She
also testified that Mrs. Green C Love
told her confidentially she had been
divorced from a former husband only
five weeks before she married Gneen.
Branching off to another subject
Mrs. Flnck testified that Green C
Love frequently devoted his time to
fancy needlework, at which he was
quite expert. He had accused her of
hiding his thimble on several occa
sions. Mrs. Green C Love, the witness, said,
was anxious that Captain Love should
pass out and once wrote a letter say
ing she wished he would die.

TO AID AN 0EEG0N VETERAN
Is Necessary That Addresses of
Officers Be Obtained.
SAN BERNARDINO. Cal., Feb. 22. (To the
Editor.) If you will publish the following you
will greatly oblige, and mayhap be the means
of assisting an old pioneer and veteran of Ore
gon's early days:
Richard W. Masters was a member of Com
pany B. Wasco County. His discharge papers
were lost In a flre at Yuma some 30 years ago,
and now, old and in ill health, he desires' to
find trace of his company officers, or those who
could-prove his Identity, that he may apply for
that help which is so Justly due him from the
state. Jlls Captain was O. Homerson. Lieuten
ant J. ' T. Jeffries. Orderly Sergeant J. H.
Smith. Sergeant F. Wolf and Colonel Nesmlth.
Some of the privates were: William Ward,
Richard Monroe, William Gatus and William
Barrett. If any of these be living and will
address Mr. Masters at Palo Verde, San Diego
County, Cal., they will confer a great favor.

Asks Aid for Distressed Family.
Charitably Inclined citizens of Portland
have been appealed to by Rev. and Mrs.
H. J. Holzapfel. of 683 Thurman street,
for aid In supporting a woman and six
children living In North Portland, who
di&ve been deserted by the husband and
father. The case Is a particularly sad
one. The youngest child being an In
fant In arms prevents the mother from
securing the work necessary to support
herself and little ones. The rent upon
the present home of the family Is due to
day and payments upon a stove which the
woman has purchased are in arrears to
such an extent that the dealer from whom
it was secured has demanded its return
or the balance of the money.
Rev. Mr. and Mrs. Holzapfel have ex
pressed a willingness to assist the famlly
as much as posible. but It Is not within
their power to give all that Is required
and they ask others to telephone to them
should they desire to help the deserted
wife and children. Rev. H. J. Holzapfel's
telephone number Is Main 4035.
Two Prisoners Still Free.
No trace has been found of Ben Darwin
and Frank Dnartrahe. two of the four
men who escaped from the City Jail last
Friday night. Resorts have been searched
In vain, but It Is suspected that the men
left the city Immediately upon gaining
their freedom. Investigation into the
cause of the jail delivery is still under
way by the Pollco Commissioners. Testi
mony has been taken from Jailer Llllls
and Captain Moore, who were In charge
of the station and jail on the night of
the break. Chief Hunt has also been
asked to explain things la connection
with the police system, and the findings
of the commission will probably be made

STIRRED BY SERMON
St. Johns Discusses Talk by
Rev. E. E. McVicker.
SALOON QUESTION INVOLVED
Commercial Club Members Think the
License Proposition Should Not
Be Considered In the Com
ing April Election.
Rev. E. E. McVIcker, . of the United
Evangelical Church, of St. Johns, has
caused much discussion by his sermon
on the coming April election in that
place. In his sermon Mr. McVickar as
sumed that a movement was being made
to open St. Johns to saloons so that the
city might have the income from the
licenses for municipal expenses. Yester
day members of the St. Johns Commer
cial Association were Interviewed as to
the effects of Mr. McVIcker's discourse
and nearly all condemned his taking up
the matter at all at this time, saying that
to precipitate the question was ifncalled
A. S. Douglas, president of the Com
mercial Club, said: "It seems that Mr.
McVIcker wants to stir up some excite
ment at this time. I heard his locture,
and what he said was all right, but there
Is no particular call for It at this timo."
J. C. Crpme. secretary of the Commer
cial Club, added: "I heard the sermon.
It was the same old story about saloons.
There was nothing new In what Mr. Mc
VIcker had to say. At this timo to
throw the saloon question into our com
ing election Is bad judgment, and It
ought pot to be allowed to cut any figure
whatever in our municipal election. Why
burden the Incoming officers with the
saloon question? The better way. In
my" judgment, would be to keep the sa
loon question entirely out of the com
ing election and then let the whole people
vote whether they want saloons, or not.
If they vote for them, that will settle
It that way, and If the majority vote
against them, that will settle It that way.

Let us have our election free entirely
from the question. Let us elect ftrst
class men to office."
Dr. E. M. Hensel said: "I did not hear
tho sermon, owing to a critical case I
had on hand, but to precipitate the sa
loon question into the coming election Is
not good judgment, however honest Mr.
McVIcker may be In his own convic
tions." "Mr. McVIckers simply put up a straw
man and tried to knock him out." said
"Unnecessary and uncalled for at this
time." was the verdict of L. B. Chip
man. "The saloon question should cut
no figure whatever in the coming elec
tion." "There was no occasion for the ser
mon on saloons as far as St. Johns is
concerned." said W. H. King. "It 13 a
question which should not be interjected
Into our coming election."
Councilman T. J. Monahan- declared:
"I heard Mr. McVicker, but I do not
want to say anything about the sermon.
I will say this, that it would be better
for all the people of St. Johns to pull
together to found a clean and model city,
and not kick and pull back against
everything that Is being done."
A mass meeting will be held In the
early part of March when a nonpartisan,
ticket will be nominated. This Is the pro
gramme .of the Commercial Association,
but there will also be another ticket in
the field, which will probably represent
oppesition to the Commercial Club peo
ple." AS TO THAT FORTY DEAD LINE
Dr. Cressey Cites Accomplishments of
More Elderly Men.
PORTLAND. Feb. 27. (To the Editor.)
In the report of my remarks concerning the
age of man's greatest accomplishment given
In The Oregonlan of yesterday I was er
roneously quoted as saying that most of
the greatest achievements In the military
art have been accomplished by men of ad
vanced years. What I said, however, was
this, that while the physical exposure and
stress of war are better endured by those
still in comparative youth, and examples
In this line of action are most frequently
adduced by those who place the "dead line"
at 40, the claim in hardly justified even
in this narrow sphere. The whole question Is
perhaps somewhat trite, but still Interesting.
Hannibal, when he maintained himself In
Italy after the defeat of Hasdrubal against
all the power of what Mommsen calls the
Roman symmachy. was over 40. At 3Q be
displayed as Chief Magistrate of Carthage
an ability in administration not less than
his skill In battle. Caesar developed mili
tary genius in middle age. won his Gallic
victories between 40 and 30 and at the bat
tle of Pharsalla was 52.
Wellington was about 46 at the battle of
Waterloo. Napoleon. Indeed, showed a de
cline In power of execution shortly after his
40th year, but no campaign was more bril
liantly planned than his final scheme to
overwhelm the English and Prussians In
Belgium and its failure was undoubtedly due
to periods of physical prostration. Had Na
poleon been simply the General, had his
physical strength not been perpetually over
taxed by tireless execution of far-reaching
plans of every description evolved out of
his labyrlnthlan mind with almost superhu
man energy for the benefit of his empire, it
is unlikely that his powers would have shown
any diminution. Von Moltke during the
Franco-German- War was 70. Bismarck 53.
The greatest results have been achieved at
no special tlma of life. Poetry Is the lan
guage of youth: philosophy, the expression of
age. Times, circumstances, development and
Incidental conditions determine the result,
but neither law nor experience places a limit
of -age to man's ability for 'achievement.
