CHRONICLES OF MEN WHO WOULD BE MAYOR
H. S. ROWE, EX-MAYOR, IS WILLING TO ASSUME AGAIN
THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE CITY'S CHIEF EXECUTIVE
(Interview No. 4.)
DOWX on Railroad Row there is a
Man Who Was and by the same
token there is a Man Who Wants
To Be Again. It is a fine large "honor
to he Mayor of Portland. Finer and
'larger than to be Governor of Oregon
and many other of the lesser common
wealths, for the office carries with it
greatly more patronage, and patronage
is the life blood of the body politic
Henry S. Rowe has tasted the bread
f power and there still remains a
tickling in his palate for more. He was
Mayor for two years following 1900 and
he liked the job so well that he Is will
ing to serve his countrymen in like
capacity from tne Junetime of 1306.
Mr. Rowe is general agent of the
"Milwaukee," a railroad of conse
qufcnce, which he has aided, and abet
ted for many years. He is a railroad
man by natural endowment and educa
tion. All the time since the Civil War
period he has been identified with rail
ways, excepting the brief two years ho
spont as chief executive of this city.
He was a boy in 1864, but big enough
and smart enough to hold a position as
telegrapher lor a Michigan road. When
he grew to manhood there was a rush
to Kansas and 5ie followed It. In sun
flower land he remained a decade or so
and then came to Portland. That was
25 years ago. Villard brought him here,
a young man of 30 or thereabouts, to
become general superintendent of the
O. R. & N. This particular railroad did
not then exist except in the future
scheme of things. There was a fleet of
boats on the Columbia and maybe a
ship or two for the sea. That was all.
He had much to do with building a
great modern highway of commerce
which linked Portland to the big world
which lay to the eastward, x
For his part in this Henri- S. Rowe
deserves the gratitude of us all. Be
cause he knew how to build, and run a
railroad the voters once thought he knew
how to build and run a city, and five
years ago they elected him Mayor.
He was faithful to the trust, as he
understood the nature of it and during his
administration the city grew apace,
waxed fat and put on airs. In a way
the years between 1900 and 1903 were
evolutionary and assuredly the man who
presided over the destinies of the gov
ernment may take some of the credit to
himself just as Mr. Rowe does. During
those yeare the town struck its gait.
When he left the Mayoralty, Henry1 S.
Rowe went back to Railroad Row, and
to this day has expended his energy in
the business of attending to his own
and the railroad's affairs.
He has not posed as a dethroned mon
arch nor troubled the public with his
advice on municipal matters. He has
sawed wood and behaved himself. Now
there seem to be a lot of people who
want him to stand again for the job
he gave up two years ago.
He has a feeling that there are enough
voters so disposed to carry the primaries
for him, else he would not have shied his
If he fails of the nomination he will
support his successful rival, so lie says.
He will continue his employment on Rail
road Row and be thankful that things arc
as they are.
Should he be elected, he says, he would
do his best to give the town a good ad
ministration without frills or furbelows.
Mr. Rowe is gray, middle-aged and of

full habit. He has the reputation of be
ing a success socially as he has been -a
success in his business. He is not the
type of man who would set the world
afire, but he Is level-headed, which most
of us are not.
Under a second Rowe administration
there would be nothing sensational, but
there might be many things profitable for
At all events he has climbed into the
balance to take his chances with the
others who think they represent about
the correct fashion In Mayors. He does
not figure himself a sure winner, but he
thinks he has a strong chance and is
backing this belief with a noiseless, still
hunt campaign that may end right for
him. He positively declines to discuss
local issues. He knows better. He has
been Mayor before. A. A. G.

SEVERAL residents of the upper Wil
lamette Valley from the vicinity of
Cottage Grove came down last night and
registered at the Imperial. Most of them
took the little trip on the recfjitet of
Francis J. Hcney, and he, having the
force of the law behind him, was not to
be put off with excuses of crops to be
planted and that sort of thing.
Among the number was J. W. Baker,
state game warden, who, however, was
traveling of his own free will. He had
a scheme to have cages full of Chinese
pheasants and quail at the Fair, and
some yarns up his sleeve.
"An old Kentucky colonel wrote me a
few days ago," he said, "and asked about
the game laws here. I sent him back a
copy, writing at the same time that I
would be glad to have him visit me at
Cottage Grove, within easy reach of
all kinds of birds and deer. And if
you want any 'b'ar,' " I added, "I can
take you over towards the coast and ac
" 'No, thanks,' he wrote back, 'I don't
have to travel all the way to Oregon
for bars, we have plenty of them here,
but I carry the stuff with me and we
won't suffer from lack of It, even if
we can't locate a b'ar.' "
E. N. Atherton, of Hartford. Conn.,
lean and 40, with the back of his neck
no burnt that the tan will never wear
off, dropped Into town last- night and
took such a fancy to the place that he
decided to remain, without further con
sideration. The tan on the back of his neck gave
him away. For when a man reaches his
age and has a tanned neok and sprightly
gait he is an athlete of one of two kinds.
He either plays tennis or rows. Mr.
Atherton rows. In fact, when the name
is considered a moment, its meaning be
gins to break on the mind. For years
he has been one of the crack single
scullers of the country and has entered
into many metropolitan events in the
East and carried off the honors.
Local sports will take an interest In
having him stay, for he is known for the
clean stroke he rows and the neatness
with which he feathers the oar, even on
the sharpest spurts. He is one of the
best trained oarsmen in the country-
"The only trouble is," he says, "that
the distance I can row best and that
set by custom do not Jibe. For a mile
I can do my best and can make a spurt
from the start that will carry me
through, but when it comes to one of
these back-breaking three-mile affairs, I
lack the beef to carry" the race through
at my speed."

MRS. HENRY WALDO COE has
just returned from Washing
ton, D. C, and the Eastern
cities, having made a month's visit
after seeing the President's inaugura
tion with Dr. Coe, who came home
"sooner. Mrs. Coe enjoyed the trip very
much and found everything pleasant
and comfortable in Washington, where
visitors expect to make the best of in
conveniences during inauguration
week. Many who had engaged rooms
months before were obliged to look for
quarters in the country, but Dr. and
Mrs. Coe were so fortunate as not to
meet with any inconvenience.
Mrs. Coe is a very good observer of
people and things and she brings horns
with her many Interesting reminis
cences of the inauguration ball In the
huge Pension building, where Mrs.
Roosevelt looked, as she says, "ever
so much more charming than nor pic
tures, which do not begin to. do her
justice," of the way Miss Alice peepcl
at her friends and waved her hand to
them from behind a column ir the gal
lery, not being allowed to join the
presidential party, of Vico-Presldent
and Mrs. Fairbanks, whose private re
ception she attended, and of Senator
Clark, of Montana, who was extremely
hospitable and gracious to the Western
visitors. She also relates a stor of
an old colored woman, one or the" thou
sands of colored people who thronged
to the inauguration, not all, however,
in the pomp with which this particular
mammy was attended.
"She wore' a gorgeous dress," Mrs.
Coe said, "with a train yards and yards
long," and she actually had hired a
little black girl to hold it up.
"We were so fortunate as to have
scats on the platform near enough to
hear the President's inaugural ad
dress," Mrs. Coe said yesterday, "anJ
as it was so windy that one could only
hear a little way, we appreciated It
very much. Then we had a comforta
ble place to sec the parade and in the
evening went to the ball, which was
an admirably managed affair, in com
parison with other Inaugural balls, for
while there were thousands of people
there wraps were not mixed up and
lost, and everyone was waited upon
promptly. At the end of the room,
where the President and Mrs. Roose
velt stood with the Vice-President and
his wife, were great masses of Ameri
can beauty roses, against a solid back
ground of green, and In front of the
musicians a space was roped off so that
people could dance."
Besides a small private reception
given by the President, Dr. and Mrs.
Coe attended one. equally Informal, giv
en by Vice-President and Mrs. Fair
banks, at their residence. When they
met the Vice-President he said. "I want
to tell you people from Oregon how
near I came to being an Oregonian my
self. Homer Davenport and I are cous
ins and my father built the wagons
that the Davenports crossed the plains
In. then building one for himself and
his own family that was two years
before I was born but something un
expected happened to prevent the jour
ney and the Davenports went on with
out our people, so you can see how
narrowly I escaped being an Ore
gonian." Senator Clark, who owns one of tho
finest collections of pictures in Amer
ica, his treasures including four of the
paintings of Rubens, took Mrs. Coe
through the Corcoran art gallery,
where he" has a loan collection, a privi
lege which she enjoyed greatly, beingl
an enthusiastic memqer of the Port
land art class. Senator Clark's pic
tures, in the collection of which he has
crossed the Atlantic 50 times, will be
hung In his New York house, a splendid
palace now In course of construction.
The mcmbero of the Progress Club
and some of their friends were de
lightfully entertained yesterday after
noon at n. club muslcale, given at the
home of Mrs. F. P. Young. The Prog
ress club colors, ycfllow and white, ap
peared in the prettily arranged deco
rations which were of jonquils and
lilies. Dainty refreshments, -served after
.the programme made a pleasant op
portunity to linger and chat.
The principal theme for the pro
gramme was the musical composition
of Richard Strauss. Mrs. Young read a
paper which was full of information
about him and his'""work. Mrs. E. E.
Coovert, who saw and heard Strauss In
Germany, gave a brief talk, and dis
played a portrait of the great com
The musical numbers began with a
Strauss serenade in E flat, Opus 7, for
four hands, played by Mrs. Pruitt and
Mrs. M. L. Pratt, Mrs. W. L. Marshaill
played Opus 3 No. 1 and Opus 3 No. 2,
and played each extremely well. A
trio by Bendlx for mandolin, raandola
and piano was played by Miss Cook,
Miss Clark and Mrs. Young, then came
two songs by Mrs. Amedee Smith, con
tralto, "Dream in the Twilight,"
(Strauss), and "Sunshine and Rain,"
(Blumenthal). Mrs. Smith was received
with enthusiasm and graciously re
sponded by singing a charming sere
nade by Purdy.
Mrs. Coovert sang several English
songs in a way that pleased al very

played another selection from Strauss
and the last number was "Flower

to the dumping of garbage behind bMl

asking that the authorities furnish
