To Induce Mayor Williams to be a
candidate for re-election, bis friends have
started a movement -which will -wind
up In a testimonial from prominent bus
iness men, declaring their confidence In
his administration and asking: him to
offer himself as a candidate. His Honor
has said that If this were done he would
"consider the question" of running again,
but not otherwise. A letter addressed to
the Mayor Is even now in circulation.
In the Republican fold much Interest
centers In Mayor Williams' candidacy.
.That he would have a very large follow
ing In the primaries for the Republican
nomination is admitted on all sides even
py members of the reform element.
Should Judge Williams be renominated,
the reform element would undoubtedly
fuse with the Democrats or put up an
independent candidate. The reform forces
have not made harbor yet and will prob
ably not anchor in anybody's port until
they see what nominees shall rise out
of .the Republican and Democratic pri
maries. Many Reform Candidates.
In the reform camp a dozen or more
men have . been measured up for the
Mayoralty. One of the latest additions to
the catalogue Is State Senator C. W. Nott
ingham, who, however, declares that he
would not consent to be a candidate.
"State Senator is all I want Just now,"
said he yesterday.
One of the leading favorites of the
Municipal Association is H. R. Albee,
now a member of the City Council. An
other is W. P. Olds, of Olds. Wortman
& King. Tyler Woodward also has a
place in the councils of the association.
Others are such as George H. Howell,
member of the Executive Board of the
city and strongly backed up by labor
unions; R. Livingstone. W. M. Ladd,
A. M. Smith, Samuel Connell. and Willis
Fisher. All the foregoing are Republi
cans. To them may be added such
Democrats as Tom Word, who Is con
sidered in reform circles as the strongest
Democrat that could be nominated for
their purposes; A. F. Flegel, member
of the City Council, who Is leading the
assault on Chief of Police Hunt; 3. H.
Thomas, who is foreman of the grand
Jury which indicted Mayor Williams, and
who will enter the primaries as a can
didate. Reform forces prefer to take up
with a Republican rather than with a
Democrat, however. Inasmuch as the
Democrats number only about one-third
of the voting population of the city.
Many Others Mentioned.
But these are not, the only Democratic
patriots who are talked of for the high
office. Alex Sweek, chairman of the
State Central Committee, perhaps has
heard of a boom in his favor. Maybe L. T.
Peery, Sweek's foe within the party, has
aieard that the name Peery would soua'd
alee belonging to a Mayor. Richard W.
Montague is the possessor of a boomlet;
also Dr. Hary Lane, M. J. Malley. J. N.
Teal. M. C. Banfield, J. Couch Flanders.
W. E. Robertson, Dr. G. M. Wells, and
R. D. Inman.

ALLEGES HE WAS DECEIVED
Wolfsher Says Note Was Obtained
Under False Pretenses.
Deceit was the defense in the suit of
the Ames Mercantile Agency for the Mu
tual .Reserve Life Insurance Company,
against Adolph Wolfsher to recover on
an insurance note of $69.40.
The complaint alleged that a policy had
been taken out by "Wolfs her In the Insur-"
snce" companay. and that he had given -his
note for the premium of $69.40. Upon his
refusal to pay the note had been turned
over to the Ames Mercantitle Agency, who
brought the suit.
In the defense WTolfshcr stated that his
signature had been obtained to the note
under false pretenses and that at the time
of signing he was not aware that ho was
signing a note, or, in fact, that ho had
taken out a policy. He asserted that he
understood that the paper he signed was
an application to have a special agent
call upon him.
When the policy was delivered -be re
fused to pay the note and returned the
policy. The case was tried before Jus
tice Reid, who will announce his decision

PERSONAL "WORK IS NEEDED
T. E. Brown Advises Young Men How
to Aid Chapman Revivals.
A meeting having for Its purpose
preparation for the coming Chapman
revivals, was held at the Y. M. C A.
last night, with L E. Brown, state sec
retary of the T. II. C A. In Illinois, as
the principal speaker. The attendants
were largely young men who will have
charge of the Sunday afternoon men's
meetings to be held throughout the
city during the revival, and Mr. Brown,
well fitted by his extensive experience
in Christian work, gave many helpful
aids and suggestions. His topic was
"Personal Work," which he defined in
Its broadest eenso as the influence
which one person or life has on another.
'There are three ways," the speaker
said, "in which the personal life and
work of one person has its Influence
on that of another: The Influence of ex
ample, the work of Invitation, and the
Intercession by prayer."
Mr. Brown illustrated each of these
points with many anecdotes and stories
and then went on to the reasons why
so many Christians fall in their per
sonal work. He summed this up under
six reasons: They do not hold at Its true
value the worth of the unsaved soul;
they do not have an adequate concep
tion of the work which Christ has com
missioned them to do; they do not rec
ognize the opportunities which are. pre
sented to them for personal work; they
are not fully prepared to do this work,
and they fail to do much work through
The speaker closed by urging upon
all men present to exert their every
effort during the coming revivals.

The small towns along the Portland and

Side division, with Trains Nos. 4 and 3 on

The following article concerning the
present schedule on tnis branch line of
the Southern Pacific appeared In the New
One of the first things to call forth un
favorable comment from the new arrival Is
tho poor transportation facilities with which
Newberg and vicinity has to put up. It Is
so uncommon a thing for so populous a
community as this to be so handicapped
that the stranger is nonplussed at the sit
uation. It Is tho policy of most enterprising-
railroads to give the best possible serv
ice and thus develop the country. A few
roads wait for a fully developed territory,
with full patronage assured, before satis
factory service is given. This neighborhood
Is what lt Is today largely by its own ef
forts, and without outside assistance. But
with & spirit of hearty co-operation on the
part of Newberg and other towns on this
branch line, and the Southern Pacific Com
pany, great results of mutual advantage
might certainly be obtained.
Here Is the situation as it exists. Newberg,
a town of some 2000 inhabitants, the center
of an Incomparably rich agricultural sec
tion, and within 23 miles of the metropolis
of the Pacific Northwest, has Just one pas
senger train into the city in the morning
and one out again in the evening.
Look at the situation from the standpoint
of the mall servico thus given. All Eastern
and sosthern mail which gets Into Portland
in the evening does not reach here for an
other day. The noon (?) freight carries
mall, lt Is true, but its ucertalat.es make
conditions but little better. Four days across
the continent, 2500 miles, and one day from
Portland, 25 miles!
What is tho relation of the sltuatton to
readers of the dally papers, especially morn
ing papers 7 The Oregonlan reaches New
berg readers anywhere from 2 to 4 o'clock,
and only an hour's ride from Portland. This
Is bad enough, but think again. There are
three rural delivery routes going out from
TAXPAYERS XN LINE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF XEBATE.
Taxpaying time is now at Us height, and the clerks In the Sheriff's office are kept "busy from morning until evening attending to the throng which fills
the office and the hallway on the outside. At times the line extends out onto the steps leading from -Fourth street. The rush Is expected to continue until March '
1& All taxes paid on or before that' date In full are subject to a rebate of 3 per cent, and the majority of taxpayers wish .to effect the saving." The total of th
ttxrcjl Is about $2,000,000, and-it Is expected that when the books are closed. March 13, most of the money, will have been collected. - The books are not finally

Newberg. the carriers starting out early in
the morning. Subscribers living on these
routes get their Monday morning papers,
for instance, by Tuesday noon, a day and
a half after it is issued and a half day after
another paper is out. It a morning train
were run out from Portland, reaching here
at 8:30. not only would the citizens of
Newberg get the advantage of the Improved
mall service, but the rural carriers would
be held until after the morning mall, with
the result that their patrons would get their
papers a day earlier and read the news
while it Is news. The same would apply
to mall in general, for while the present
service means a day from Portland to New
berg with much of the Eastern and South
ern mall. It means nearly two days to those
on the rural delivery. Three days from Chi
cago to Portland and two days from Port
land to Newberg R. F. Dl
Present conditions place Newberg at -a
great disadvantage in attracting new peo
ple, and especially those who have been
used to ?o much better service elsewhere.
And besides, the prospective home buyer
who Is making a hurried tour of tha state
finds It takes so much time to make the
trip out here that, other things being equal,
he goes elsewhere. This is no mere theory.
It Is a hard fact that militates against the
development of this locality.
As It Is, one cannot spend an evening in
Portland without being away from New
berg two whole days. This meas an outlay
of time and money which keeps most peo
ple at home. Newberg. a college town, has a
high standard of citizenship. Her people
appreciate hearing and seeing some of the
good things which come to a city the size
of Portland, but the opportunity Is prac
tically denied them. From this standpoint
an evening train Into the city and a morn
ig train out would be a great boon.
The Lewis and Clark Centennial Is draw
ing on apace, but under present conditions
the people of this section feel that they
wlU be unable to enjoy the full benefit of the
Fair and the posibllltlea which it brings
for development. Newberg Is giving, and for
years has given liberal patronage to the
Southern Pacific. Isn't it about time there
was something coming from the other end
of the line?
We are aware that these suggestions aro
not new that they have been heard before.
And we might add that they will be heard
again If something Isn't done. To be In
stant In season and out is the Graphic's
aim, for it believes that agitation is neces
sary to secure this and other improvements.
But there Is one thing that would beat agi
tation all to pieces. . And that Is a morn
ing train out of Portland.
REPAIRING NORTH HEAD CABLE
District Forecaster Beals on. Scene
Superintending the Work.
District Forecaster E. A. Beals, of the
local Weather Bureau, is still at the
mouth of the river endeavoring to secure
the speedy repair of the North Head
.This cable, which provides telegraphic
communication between the weather sta
tion at North Head and the mainland,
was caught by the schooner "Virginia two
weeks ago and broken. Since that time
several attempts have been made to lo
cate the broken ends of the cable, and
they have twice been picked up by the
revenue cutter Perry and the lighthouse
tender Manzanlta. In each case, how
ever, they have been dropped, owing to
unfavorable weather conditions. Mr. Beals
seems to be encountering considerable
difficulty in securing the proper boat or
tug to do the work, and he telephoned to
the local office yesterday to ascertain
Just what tugs are available In Portland.
In the meantime communication Is main
tained with North Head by means of the
telephone. This, however. Is not alto
gether satisfactory, and the officials are
anxious to have the cable repaired at the
earliest possible moment.
BOARD OF TRADE JOURNAL OUT
March Number Contains Instructive
and Interesting Articles.
The March number of the Board of
Trade Journal of Portland. Just pub
lished, is devoted to exploitation of the
Northwest, Oregon and the Lewis and
Clark Fair in particular. Among its
leading articles are one on the Fair,
another on the Rogue River "Valley,
and another which, by statistics, snows
Portland and Oregon to be growing at
a wonderful rate.
A prominent department In the paper
is devoted to .the mining Industry, in
which note Is taken of mining opera
tlons in all parts of the Northwest,
even as far East as Butte. The articles
in the paper are all written to show
the opportunities In the Northwest for
development, and at the same time the
statements of fact are based on sta
tistics which prove this country to be
going ahead as rapidly as stated.
WILL GIVE RELIEF
Water Board flans New arfd
Larger Piping System. -
ESTIMATES . ARE PREPARED
If Plans Are Carried Out the Im
provements Will Cost About
52257000 Large Conduits to
Be Laid and Piping Done.
So that the northern part of the East
Side will within a few months have a
water supply adequate to the needs
of that rapidly growing region, esti
mates for a new piping system have
been prepared by D. D. Clarke, engineer
of the Water Board, which, if followed
out. will mean the expenditure of
A large conduit will be laid from ihe
Mount Tabor reservoirs and the water
distributed over a wide area, where
now prevails low pressure and some
times a positive lack of water.
Before the' line can be completed,
however, the dry Summer months will
be at hand, and Portsmouth and Uni
versity Park will suffer for water.
Therefore temporary relief will be
granted that district until the entire
new system is connected with the res
ervoirs. Sixteen women, representing the
University Park Civic Improvement
Association, appeared before the meet
ing of the Water Board yesterday
afternoon. Mrs. M. Athey acted as
spokesman- She presented a petition
signed 'by 327 water users, praying for
improvement over last Summer's con
ditions. Water Vas Scarce.
"After 5 o'clock in the afternoon we
couldn't get water at all," said she.
"We either had. to draw off water be
fore that time and keep It or melt ice
for drinking water."
To relieve this section of the city
Dr. S. E Joscphl moved that a 16-lnch
main be laid from Commercial street
and Kllllngsworth avenue, out Killings
worth avenue to Patton avenue, and
thence following the more populous
portion to a terminus at Dawson street
and Portsmouth avenue. So rapidly
are houses being built in this neigh
borhood that it was stated the demand
for water would this year be greater
by 50 per cent than last year.
Engineer Clarke has been at worjc
on the new East Side system for a long
time. Last June he submitted a report
outlining the route. Changes and Im-
provements have been made, as shown
by the report filed yesterday. It is
the purpose of the Water Board grad
ually to build up a permanent system
of pipes for the entire city, which can
be added to as the population grows.
The construction of the portion out
lined yesterday will proceed as rapidly
as funds permit.
Conduits to Be Laid.
From reservoir No. 1, Mount Tabor,
the conduit will be laid to West avenue,
and thence north on West avenue to
the Base Line road. From Fremont
street and the Gravel Hill road two
routes have been surveyed at a slight
difference in cost.
The survey of the conduit ends near
the southwest corner of the "Vernon
addition, near where a standpipe will
be erected. From this point distrib
uting mains will branch oft, carrying
water to the northernmost limits of the
city. The largest tube", a 20-inch pipe.
Is to run out Kllllngsworth and thence
on Union avenue. The engineer esti
mates that the 24-lnch conduit for 31.
600 feet will cost $130,200, while 5400
feet of 20-inch pipe will cost $24,800.
Smaller pipes for greater distances will
cost $75,800. For the purchase of a
new site and the removal of the pres
ent Irvington standplpv, an estimate of
$5000 is made. Allowing for connec
tions and contingencies, the total ex
penses wlIL amount to $255,000.
The Civil Service Commission re
quested that Superintendent Dodge be
allowed the power of appointing em
ployes of the Water Board. Dr. JosephI
thought this was taking too" much pow-
er away from the board. The other
members present, CS. H. Raffety and
George W. Bates, waited until Dr. Jo
seph! discovered ' that the resolution
presented gave the members the final
appointive power after all.
A. H. Wilson was appointed clerk in
the Water Office, and W. Douth was
given a position at the head works.
SLOT MACHINES UP AGAIN.
Council May Consider Subject at Spe
cial Meeting Tomorrow.
With every wind that blows comes a
change in tho slot-machine regulations.
One breeze Is on the way now. At the
special meeting of the Council tomorrow
'an 'effort will bo-made to change the lat
est ordinance which absolutely prohibits
such devices from operating.
When Councilman Mat Foeller was in
dicted by the grand jury and fined for
operating a slot machine he determined
that the city license on these machines
should hi done away with. "What's the
use of paying your fine and a license,
too?" he asked.
Therefore, a month ago Foeller intro
duced an ordinance which he thought re
pealed the license provision. But he went
to California soon afterward. On his re
turn he was surprised to learn that an
ordinance prohibiting slot machines had
been passed. It's up to the Mayor
whether the ordinance shall be enforced
or not. No orders have yet been given
the police to chaso the machines from
the cigar-store counters.
Want More Policemen.
Fifty additional policemen during the
Exposition months is the desire of the po
lice committee of the Executive Board as
formulated at the meeting yesterday
morning. A recommendation will be pre
sented to the next board meeting. This
is following out the expressed wish of the
other members of the board. The num
ber of patrolmen is now less than a year
ago. as several vacancies have occurred
which have not been filled.
FAIR WILL BE BENEFICIAL.
Major Algar M. Wheeler Says It Will
Not injure Portland.
."Without exception, the various great
expositions that have been held in the
United States during the past 15 years
have resulted in much good to the cities
In which they were held." said Major
Algar M. Wheeler, director of the manu
facturing department at the Pan-American
Exposition and assistant .director-general
of the Charleston Exposition, in an
Interview yesterday. "I have attended
every great Exposition held In this coun
try and Europe during the past decade,
and I have revisited many of the cities
a few years after the close of the exhibi
tions' and invariably found that the bank
ers, merchant sand transportation com
panies were as one in praising the bene
ficial results to the city.
"The only reaction that I have ever no
ticed at any of these expositions was
among the hotels, lodging-houses and
private home-owners who had rented
rooms. It seems to be the Idea of these
people that they must get twice as much
for their rooms during the Exposition as
at any other time, and as a result they
lose their regular guests and are able
to keep the sightseers but a few days.
People coming to Portland with the In
tention of remaining weeks will return to
their homes in a few days on account of
the exorbitant rates asked in the hotels.
It is to interests of the merchants of
Portland to Insist that equitable rates for
rooms and board be maintained. The same
amount of money will be spent, and prob

BEFORE THE COURT
Contractors on Trial for Break
IMPROVEMENT BOARD ACTS
Other Contractors and Merchants
Who Persist In Filling Street
and Sidewalks Will Be Ar
rested and Prosecuted
The efforts of the board of ctvlc im
provement of the Chamber of Commerce
were confined in great part to the Munici
pal Court yesterday. The cases of Con
tractor Bingham, at work on a building
between Sixth and Seventh streets on
Stark; of the contractor at work on the
Oregon Hotel, on the corner of. Seventh
and Stark; of the Blazier building, on
West Park and Washington; of S. L.
Brown, a cigar man, on Fourth, and Al
der, and of the Palace Market on Tam
hill, between Third and Fourth, were all
brought Into the court for the considera
tion of Judge Hogue. The court continued
the cases until this morning, when, all
will be given a hearing.
In addition to this number there are
several warrants out for contractors
whose names were not known to L. E
Crouch, the attorney for the board, but
who win be taken into court as soon as
the papers can be served on them. It will
be the desire and is the Intention of the
civic improvement board to prosecute all
the cases taken to tho court with the
utmost vigor possible. In order that it
may become apparent that there Is an
earnest purpose behind the movement for
a clean and wholesome city.
The next point of attack wlU be on
First street, south of Yamhill, where
many Junk dealers hold forth, in all their
glory and disorder. Here, it Is reported,
the, sidewalks are almost covered with, old
refuse gathered together by the Junk
dealers, who are in the habit of leaving
the stuff on the streets as a very con
venient dumping place pending final dis
position of the goods. This practice will
be stopped, and if the request of the
board that the streets In that locality be
cleaned up and kept clean is not heeded,
trouble is in store for the merchants, so
it is promised.
The wholesale district will be looked
into to a certain extent, though, it Is rec
ognized that different conditions prevail
here than are to be found in other parts
of the city. .There Is a provision, in the
ordinance which allows the use of the
sidewalks in transferring goods from a
store or warehouse to trucks and wagons,
or the reverse, but in tha face of this it
Is not necessary to obstruct the whole
of the street, so It is argued, and the
board will ask that a.passage way be left
at all times along the streets of the
Notices axe being prepared by the direc
tion of the board which will be placed, hi
all public buildings and in many conspicu
ous places along the streets, warning the
people that it Is a violation of the or
dinances to scatter paper or other debris
along the streets or in the buildings. In
addition to these notices, and to make
them more effective, it Is the Intention
of the board to provide boxes or other
receptacles into which all waste matter
can be thrown, the boxes to be placed at
convenient intervals along the curbs.
These boxes will be put In place In a
short time and it is expected they will be
of great assistance to the board and the
city officials in their contention for the
observance of the ordinances.
DIES FROM APPENDICITIS.
E. W. Paget, of Gaston, Succumbs at

D. W. Paget, a farmer of Gaston, Wash

Sleeplessness, fretfulness. restlessness, ner
vousness, irritability all are the outward
signs of Inward nerve disturbance. The
fault Is not with the nerves which give
yon warning not with the nerves which
enable you to feel, to walk, to talk, to think,
to Bee. But the inside nerves, the. automatic
power nerves these are the nerves that
work wears out and worry breaks down.
I have not room here to explain how these
tender, tiny nerves control and operate the
stomach, the heart the kidneys, the liver.
How excesses and strains and overindulgence
destroy their delicate fibers. How. through
a bond ot sympathy, weakness in one center
Is conveyed to each ' of the other centers.
How this same bond of sympathy produces
the outward signs of nervousness which
should warn us of the trouble within. I
have not room to explain how these nerves
may be reached and strengthened and vital
ized and made well by a remedy I spent
thirty years in perfecting now known by
druggists everywhere as Dr. Snoop's Restora
