Sr. Johns Wants Free Fkrrt. If the
city of St. Johns tvHI provide a ferry
"boat the county -will probably operate It
between that place and the West Side.
This much a committee from the Com
mercial Club ascertained after a confer
ence with County Judge Webster a few
days ago. For some time the matter of
getting a ferry across the Willamette at
St. Johns has been agitated, but the cost
of building a boat will be about J10.O00.
This amount the new city does not have
at present. However, the promoters of
the ferry movement are not discouraged,
and will take it p after the city elec
tion. Obganizixg a Big Chobus. The Mount
Tabor, MontavlUa and South Munt Ta

of 200 or 300 may be selected. B. C.
Adams, of Mount Tabor district No. 6.
said yesterday that the actual work of
organizing the chorus had not yet been
begun, but some of the preliminaries have
been arranged. S. E. Hunter, teacher of
music in the three schools, will be the

told unpleasant stories about the barber-

sure he was a prince, she turned the

Since the announcement was first
made that the Columbia Stock Com
pany will suddenly terminate Its Port
land career after next Sunday night's
performance, there has been a constant
line of pcoplo buying and ordering
scats for some performance during- the
week. It Is only now that the people
arc beginning to fully realize the loss
they will sustain when the Columbia
Stock Company Is no more. Each and
every member has a large coterie of
friends and followers who will keenly
feel the loss personally and profes

after the opening of the Exposition. The
presence of the Fair' will bring many

Prohibition Leaders Declare
WILL NAME OWN CANDIDATE
Man Who Believes in Restricting
Liquor Traffic Within Bounds of
Decency Does Not' Go Far
Enough for Them.
Leaders of the. Prohibition party de
clare that their flock will surely bolt from
the reform element's candidate. H. R.
Albee, for his having said that the liquor
traffic, within legal bounds of decency,
was a legitimate business.
Mr. Albee's words have made the Pro-

hibitionlsts angry, and leaders of the
co.ld-water brigade say they will put up
a candidate of their own and go down
with him to the slaughter and shed the
last drop of their fightlftg- blood in the
battle against whlskr: for to their minds
there can be no moral restriction on liquor
and no decency save behind the bulwark
of absolute prohibition. In their opinion-,
the sale of liquor Is Just as unrighteous
before 1 o'clock at night as after that
hour, and more wicked because it makes
more persons drunk before that hour.
Consequently the Prohibition leaders say
they will take away some cO or 600 votes
from the Albee camp.
But Mr. Albee Is standing his ground
valiantly and announcing that while ho is
a foe. to the open town, he has no fight
against decent liquor traffic; by which
he means such traffic as Is free of boxcg
and combination-houses and obeys the
laws. He says he desires reforms estab
lished and maintained in the city, but

because "they are Itnpractlcal, much as

"George H. Williams will be renominat
ed and re-elected sure," quoth. F. llcKer
cher yesterday, one of the drivers of the
cold-water wagon. "Tou'll see what I am
telling you come true."
And B. Lee Paget, another driver,
echoed the same sentiment, and, though
he is a dear friend of Albee's and admires
him much, Mr. Paget declared that he did
not see any other course open to prohibi
tionists except that of naming a candi
date of their own unless Mr. Albee should
take back what he said.
"As things are now," said Mr. Paget,
gravely, "I think Wllllarns will be elect
ed." Thus another echlsra seems probable In
the reform ranks, between the closed
town people and their prohibition allies,
the same as in the prohibition campaign
last November, when the- prohibitionists
called a count- election, much to the dis
gust of the other element. The prohibi
tionists were so badly chastised by the
returns o? the election that the other
element thought they were subdued for
tho next city contest, and would stay In
the reform camp and not go to one of
their own and thus split tho closed-town
Before Albee was Indorsed by the Muni

that they would gladly rally behind a re

De tney expressed satisfaction,. and said
that to all of their knowledge he was

"REGON has a climate somewhat
KJ similar to that found In Ireland
and Scotland." said Robert Van Sands,
supremo orator of the Royal Arcanum,
of Chicago, at '4e Portland hotel last
evening. "This is my first visit tp this
section of the country, but from- my ob
servations so far I have come to tbo con
clusion the Oregonians enjoy this rainy
weather. It Is the same way in Ireland
and Scotland, where It .rains a good part
of the Winter.
"The people of that country stay In
doors oil bright and chilly days, but whoa
it rains they flock out on tho streets. I
believe, however, that Oregon has a bet

Ireland or Scotland, as there Is an ab

"I used to think the Inhabitants of

This Is attributed to the rainy weather
But I find upon coming to this city that
the people here have complexions which
are as pretty, if not prettier, than those
found among the Scotch and Irish." .
"1 think It is about time for me to
take a rest," said J. R. Whitney, the
state printer, yesterday afternoon, stand
ing In front of the Imperial hotel. "The
printery has taken up a good deal of
spaoe in the papers lately," he con
tinued, "but things are beginning to
quiet down. I think the state printery
is entitled to about three months vaca
tion." A H. Baldwin, chief agent of the De
partment of Commerce and Labor exhibit
at the Lewis and Clark Exposition, ar
rived In Portland yesterday to remain
until after the Fair. Mr. Baldwin is
accompanied by G. A. Schneider. W. E.
Morgan, W. P. Saucrhoft and Wm. Pay
ton, four Government experts, who will
Install and take care of the Government
exhibit. Mr. Baldwin, who was detailed
from the Bureau of Fisheries at Wash
ington, will have charge of the census,
lighthouse, labor, fishery and standard
exhibits at the Exposition. He Is work
ing under the direction of Frank H.
Hitchcock, who. is the representative of
Dr. Woods Hutchinson, who retires as
the Department- of Commerce and Labor
exhibit. Mr. Hitchcock Is expected to
arrive in Portland Just before the Fair
"The fishery exhibit will be one of the
most complete and expensive of any of
the Government exhibits at. the Fair,"
said Mr. Baldwin .at the Hotel Portland
last evening. "While It will not be quite
as extensive as the exhibit at the St.
Louis Fair, there will be but little dif
ference. There will bo as many differ
ent varieties of fish shown, but not Jn
such numbers as at St. Louis.
"We will commence work" Immediately
to prepare for tho Installation of the
fishery exhibit. It will require a great
deal of plumbing and piping, which Is
very expensive. One of the most Im
portant features, as well as ono of the
most attractive, will be a large pool of
water situated In the center of the
building. The pool will be about 20 feet
across. It will contain live seals and
many of the rare species of fish of the
larger variety. 4
"It is very probable that the fish hatch
cry exhibit will be housed under another
building. If erected It will adjoin the
main building. It -was first proposed to
have the entire exhibit under one roof,
but as the propagation of fish Is be
coming more important each year, it has
been thought advisable to givo it more
space. This exhibit will show the prop
agation of salmon and trout and will

NEWSPAPER notoriety killed him.
Because It was said of him by Pa
trolman White that he frequently at
tacked passing pedestrians and had been
known to assault teams, he suffered
death. The report of the policeman, made
to Chief Hunt last week, was published
In The Oregonlan. The next day there
were indications- that trouble was in store.
What hurt most of all, however, was
the charge that he sometimes had been
seen to expectorate on the sidewalks
near his home. This and the other vio

decided he must die.
