They Call on City Council to
Urge Creation of Meat
that he would vote for Mr. Zimmerman's
ordinance or ours?"
The plan of the ladies to publish, a. clean
list Is meeting1 -with the approval or sev
eral marketa. Some ot them are tearing
out old refrigerators and putting In new.
Old vegetable bins are being rebuilt and
sinks for Trashing vegetables and the
hands of employes are being put in.
The ladles announce in no uncertain
terms that they are In earnest and want
the marketmen to know that until the
city provides a regular Inspector that they
will publish a clean list, which, will con
tain the name and addre or every mar
ket that they Inspect and find clean. Ap
plications for inspection should be made
at the School of Domestic Science, at
Tenth and Alder streets.
As Soon, as the Women Depart the
Question. Is Taken Up and an
Ordinance Recommended
to tbe Council.
Several of the committees of the City
Council were to meet and practically
all of the members of that body were
gathered about the Auditor's office for
a political chat yesterday afternoon.
Just as the discussions waxed warm
there appeared xipon the scene a. dele
gation of women bearing- bundles that
looked formidable. The delegation.
consisting1 of Mrs. W. X Honeyman,
Mrs. A. E. Hockey and Mrs. James S.
Falling, hesitated not. but the Coun
cllmen sought refuge in adjoining
rooms, where the committee meetings
were about to he called to order. Noth
ing daunted, the ladles followed, and
from one room to the other the unusual
procession wended its way. When the
office adjoining that of the license de
partment was Teached, Councilman
Sherrett picked up a bundle of papers
and proceeded to transact the business
of the license committee. Hardly had
he proceeded to the first item when
the presence of the women was an
nounced With proper courtesy he
greeted them and Inquired their busi
ness, which was soon explained as
hearing upon the proposed appoint- i
ment of a -meat inspector. This was
hardly in the line of the duty of the
committee on licenses, so the delega
tion was conducted to another room to
await the call of the committee on
ways and means.
They "Wait Patiently.
The ladies waited for some time, but
finally Councilman Zimmerman braved
the feminine force to call a meeting
of the liquor license committee. Again
the ladles were announced, and again
the explanations were In order that
the proper committee was the ways
and means. This time they -were pa
tient, and when that committee ex
changed chairs with the members ofv
the preceding ones the women acted
as though they expected an April fool
joke to be perpetrated, but Mr. Zim
merman came to their rescue with the
explanation that some of the 'Council
men were members of several commit
tees and that the ways and means com
mittee was about to consider the busi
ness of the city. Mrs. Honeyman was
quick to respond to what she supposed
was an invitation to tell her mission,
by saying:
"We are from the School of Domes
tic Science, and we want an ordinance
passed by the City Council that will
provide an Inspector of markets."
"Well, that matter will not come be
fore this committee until two weeks
from today," replied Mr. Zimmerman.
"Butwe were Informed that the com
mittee would meet today," said Mrs.
Councilman Zimmerman Well, all I
know about the matter is that this
same scheme was before the City Coun
cil a year ago and was defeated.
Councilman Albee (to the ladies)
Well, men have a right to change their
minds, too, and I know that some of us
have changed our minds, and I will
promise that I will vote for an in
spector. Councilman Zimmerman There are
two of these market inspector proposi
tions going to be presented to the
Council, but you ladles cannot do any
thing until the Council refers them
to us.
Councilman Albee I did not know there
was more than one.
Councilman Zimmerman Well, there the
Mrs. Honeyman We were . told that
there was a meeting of some committee
here today that would take this matter
Councilman Zimmerman Well, you
ladies come back in two weeks, and if the
ways and means committee has an ordi
nance referred to It you can discuss the
matter then.
Mrs. Honeyman But we want the mar
kets Inspected now. They are a disgrace.
Councilman Zimmerman Ladies, I am
sorry, but I can do nothing for you.
The ladles (In chorus) Thank you,
Within five minutes after the women left
the building the adjourned meeting of the
committee on health and police met at the
counter in the main office of the Auditor,
and, without discussion, ordered the very
ordinance that the women had vainly
searched for recommended to the Council.
Who Is to Blame?
Now the ladies want to know who Is to
blame. Councilman Albee had the copy
of the proposed ordinance In his pocket
during the meeting of all the committees
that the ladies called upon, but not a
word did he offer in the way of explana
tion, but rather watched with Interest
their endeavors to find the missing or
dinance. The proposed ordinance, as recommend
ed by the committee, provides for an in
spector of markets and places where all
articles of food are sold, and provides for
a ealary of J1500 a year, with one or more
deputies, to be paid according to the
amount of fees that would be collected un
der" the ordinance, which also provides
for the collection of 25 cents for each car
cass of beef inspected and 10 cents for
each sheep, hog or goat inspected.
"The committee of ladles does not feel
as though cold water was thrown on It,"
said Mrs. Honeyman last night. "It Is
true we did not see the particular crowd
of Councllmen that we wanted to, but
then we did not know whom wd wanted
to see nor Just why we were there, ex
cept to impress upon the city's officials
that we are In earnest about the appoint
ment of an inspector. We feel as though
we have accomplished something, and I
think that we have let them know that
we will not stop until the disgraceful con.
ditions about the city's markets are rem
Indignation aieeting Held.
"We held an indignation meeting after
we left the City Hall yesterday after
noon," said Mrs. A. E. Rockey, "and we
decided to call upon the City Council
next Wednesday in a body. All the mem
bers of the investigating committee will
bo there, and a large number of others,
and. notwithstanding Mr. Zimmerman's
declaration that it would be useless for
va to be present, we shall insist upon be
ing heard. It is criminal for the Council
to allow such, conditions as exist in the
markets to go on, and we shall see
whether Mr. Zimmerman knows Just what
the Council will do Wednesday or not. I
think that Mr. Albee is in favor of the
inspector, and I know that he will keep
his word and vote for it, but I would like
to know why he looked at me so queerly
yesterday when wo departed. Did he mean
Unless Orpheum Keeps Women From
Boxes It Will Suffer.
Tbe liquor license "cminlttee of the City
Council decided at a meetin yesterday to
revoke the license of the Orpheum
Theater after May 1, to sell liquor unless
the proprietors forbid women within the
boxes upon the upper floors. Several
new saloon licenses were rranted for
places near the Exposition grounds and
several complaints were registered about
the places already selling liquor in the
same neighborhood.
Instructions were given the proper
authorities by the license committee to
enforce rigidly the ordinance against bill
"boards more than 12 feet high. There has
been much complaint about tho high bill
boards and as there is already an ordin
ance forbidding them, the committee or
dered it enforced.
The time of the ways and means com
mittee was taken In discussing placing
of receptacles about the streets for rub
bish and the Installation of water for
fire protection upon Willamette Heights.
Nothing definite was done with either
At the meeting of the street commit
tee there were lively times. There was
a delegation of citizens owning property
along lower Second street to protest
against paving that street with bltullthlc
pavement, and another to protest against
using stone with a sand foundation, and
still a third that wanted the stone, but
wanted concrete put underneath. The
street railroad company was also repre
sented, but Its delegation did not seem
to have any preferences so long as it
knew the kind before It started to lay
the rails for the new loop.
After more than an hour of discussion
which consisted of spcechs and argu
ments between the representatives of
rival paving companies the committee de
cided to reject all petitions and thus force
the presentation of a new one that would
properly state the wishes of the majority
of the property-owners.
The keeping open of sidewalk elevators
by certain firms was taken up and an
order was issued to enforce the or
dinance as it now stands. Several pe
titions for street Improvements were
acted upon and permits granted to ex
tend switch rails along certain streets of
the East Side. Orders were issued to
insist that all electrical street signs here
after constructed be placed upon hinges
and swung over the street at night only.
Detectives Think That So One
Robbed Safe of A. J. Cranwcll.
Detectives Kerrigan, Snow, Carpen
ter and Reslng yesterday cleared up a
sensational alleged safe-cracking- and
robbery said to have taken place during-
Sunday night In the room occupied
by A. J. Cranwell, In the Abington
building. After listening to a very de
tailed story of tne affair by Cranwell,
and investigating the movements of tho
latter covering the past few days and
nights, the officers reported to Chief
Hunt that they had solved the mys
tery. "We arc not going to look any fur
ther for the man who opened the safe,"
said the detectives to Cranwell, after
making their investigation.
Cranwell made no reply. He seemed
satisfied to have v. the assurance that
nothing more would be done regarding:
the great robbery.
As the policemen of the day patrol
were lined up for roll-call yesterday
morning, Cranwell rushed in, breath
less, and sought the Chief. He explained
that burglars had drilled the safe in
the room occupied by himself as a place
of business, and that they had taken
an enormous amount of jewelry and
cash to the amount of $300.
Cranwell has been In a great deal of
trouble of late. He was before Munici
pal Judge Hogue recently on a seri
ous charge. He formerly conducted an
establishment on Sixth street, and It
was alleged that he sold half shares of
it to various Individuals for large
sums. It was for this alleged offense
that he was arrested.
Cannot Be Turned Here, So Plan
Is Abandoned.
General Manager Worthington, of the
O. R. & N. and the Oregon lines of the
Southern Pacific, says that the dispatch
from Traffic Manager C. S. Fee, of San
Francisco, announcing the establish
ment of observation-car service through
the Willamette Valley on the day trains
of the Southern Pacific is a mistake and
that the service will not be estab
lished at this time for the reason that
there Is no way of turning the cars at
this end of the lino, and therefore they
cannot be used in and out of Portland
until such time as changes may be
made in the track. In speaking of the
matter yesterday, Mr. Worthington
"It wag our original intention to run
these cars through on trains 15 and 16,
and if we were able to turn them here
we should be running these cars. We
should be extremely glad to oblige the
peopo of the Willamette Valley in this
matter if we could, but at the present
time find we are not able to do so.
Some-time later we may bo able to in
troduce this attractive feature on day
light trains through the Willamette
Valley, and when we are able to do so,
they will not find us wanting, as we
are anxious, indeed, to do everything
we can that will add to the comfort or
pleasure of the trip through this beau
tiful Valley."
Railway Officers Are Elected.
The Board of Directors of the Oregon
& California-Railway Company meeting
yesterday afternoon in the Worcester
building elected the following officers:
E. H. Harriman. president; B. A. Worth
ington, vice-president, and Richard Koeh
ler, second vice-president. W. W. Cotton
was appointed secretary; Alexander Mil
lar, assistant secretary; X. T. Smith,
treasurer, and A. K. Van Deventer, assist
ant treasurer.
