A petition filed in the Auditor's of
fice mysteriously disappeared and
three days later -was found added to
another petition that had become fen
official document and had been acted
upon by the Council and various com
mittees. The new petition had material ef
fect upon action of street committee
on the petition as It gave preponder
ance of property to the men that
signed a year ago.
W. F. White, who attached the pa
per, admits doing so. but says that he
had no "wrongful intent.
A petition for the improvement of Sec
ond street that was filed a "year ago and
had been acted upon by the City Council
and the street committee as well as the
City Engineer, was removed from its file
in the -City Auditor's office between April
li and 17, and to it was attached another
petition written upon the same kind of
paper and worded as nearly alike the
original as" possible before it was returned
to its proper place. This was the dis
covery made yesterday morning by The
When it is explained that the old pe
tition did not have sufficient signatures

street-committee when entered into com
petition with another petition for a dif
ferent kind of pavement, the reason for
the addition of the new facsimllie petition
is readily understood. The tampering with
the papers', however, did not result in in
jury to anyone, as the street committee
decided to throw out both petitions .and
ask for new ones, not because the mem
bers of the committee knew of the mys
terious addition to the city's records, but
on account of the bitter fight that was
started as a result of the filing of two
petitions and the inability of the two fac
tions to agree upon any certain 'kind of
Xcw Petition Is Discovered.
On April 14 W. F. White, a broker of
city and county warrants, called at the
Auditor's office and filed a petition with
Deputy Auditor Smith for the paving of
Second street. After the filing of the pe
tition Mr. Smith does not remember see

terday morning attached to a petition
filed a year ago in his department. It
was supposed to have been placed with
other new petitions that were awaiting
action by the Council, but when missed
from this file it could not be found.
For the accommodation of the citizens
Interested, Auditor Devlin has always al
lowed public records to be seen by all
who desired, and it was by reason of this
rule that Mr. White was able to remove
the new petition from the desk of Deputy
Smith and later attach it to the old pe
tition without anyone noticing his act.
The original petition,, was filed by A.
W. Heed and others, May 2, l&Oi, and con
tained the names of 24 property-owners
who were holders of BOVi lots, or 2525
front feet along Second street. Their pe
tition asked that the old stone blocks be
taken up where necessary only, and
where depressions existed, that they be
filled with crushed rock and the stone
blocks be rclaid on a sand cushion. This
petition stipulated that Second street be
Improved. In that manner between the
north line of Morrison street and the
south line of Flanders street.
On May A, 1904, the petition was referred
to the committee on streets and that body
agreed to grant the improvement, but
recommended that ail the old stone blocks
now on Second street be taken up and
recut and that a new stone block pave
ment be laid on a, concrete foundation
and that the gas and sewer pipes and the
railway tracks be laid according to the
ordinance. This report of the street
committee was signed by E. B. Rumelin.
A. K. Bentley and John P. Sharkey, and
was filed May 13, 1904. On May 18. 1904, it
was referred back to the committee on
streets by the Council.
On May 2S the Council committee on
streets referred the matter to the Execu
tive Board committee on streets, with a
recommendation that the City Engineer
prepare plans and estimate the probable
total cost. The City Council adopted this
recommendation on June 1, 1S04.
The City Engineer received .his in
structions to prepare the plans and speci
fications on the following day. but from
that time until Captain Charles Wanzer
took charge of the office over seven
months later, nothing was heard of the
matter. He took up the work of the de
partment with great vigor and among
the many dust-covered papers discovered

with the exception that the word
"Glisan" is substituted for the word

KJernan Petition Outnumbered.
When the street committee took up the
matter of Improving Second street, Mon
day afternoon, the members supposed they
had to deal with the petition of Frank
Klernan and others only, but it soon de
veloped that the opponents of Kiernan's
petition remembered the old petition and
called for it. Deputy Auditor Grutz, who
is clerk of the committee, did not know
iust where to find it, but W. P. White
at once offered to guide him to its hiding
place, and It was soon before the commit
tee for inspection. An addition of the
number of names and the amount of prop
erty signed for showed that it had a great
deal the best of the new petition or tier
nan and others, but it was not discovered
that a new piece of paper had been added
to it by Mr. White, and he did not tell
anyone about it. The action of the street
committee in ordering' new petitions pre

"White Explains His Action.
"When City Engineer .Wanzer resur
rected the old petition and Mr. Klernan
and others started out to get signatures
to a petition for Warren's bltulithlc pave
ment, I was asked by the opponents of
such a pavement to circulate another peti
tion, which I did. I secured sufficient
names to give our side a preponderance
of the property along the street, and then
took the paper to the Auditor's office for
filing. The deputies in the main office of
the Auditor were busy, so I went to
Deputy Smith. He did not have a- filing
stamp, so I went to another deputy and
borrowed a stamp. After I had stamped
the instrument Mr. Smith affixed his sig
nature, and laid the paper upon his desk.
I did not want the new petition lost, so
suggested that It be put with the other
papers bearing upon the same matter. No
answer was made by Mr. Smith, and I
took it to the filing' cabinet and attached
it to the old petition.
"I did not do this with any intent to de

committee would know that we had the
most property on our petition."
TO ATTACH NEW DINERS

Daylight Trains Through Willam

It is announced by the Southern Pacific,
that, commencing on Friday, April ZL a
dining-car service will be Inaugurated on
trains 11 and 12 between San Francisco
and Dunsmulr. These are the companion
trains which leave Portland at 8:30 o'clock
In the morning and arrive at S o'clock in
the evening, and the commencement of
the service at the southern end of the
line will give dlnlng-car accommodations
throughout the trip from Portland to San
Heretofore trains 15 and 16 of the South
ern Paclflo have been the popular bnes
running between Portland and San Fran
cisco, on account of the dlnlng-car ser
vice. Each day, tooth at tne .Portland,
and the southern end of the line, passen
gers have been held over owing to the
crowds wishing to travel on the trains,
while trains 11 and 12 oftentimes began
their journeys only partially loaded. This
was entirely due to the accommodations
offered on the two sets of trains.
Will Equalize Traffic.
Noting this, the management has de
cided to make a change with a view to
the betterment- of the service and the
oonseauent equalization of the traffic.
The contemplated arrangement will give
dining-car service through the entlro
route, with the exception of the night run
through the mountains, when the cars
will not be needed. The cars will be at
tached to train 11 at Dunsmulr at 7:S0
In the morning and .will remain on the
train until San Francisco is reached at
U o'clock at night. The cars will leave
San Francisco on train 12 at i:30 o clock
in the morning and will be taken oft at
Dunsmulr at 10:50 in the evening.
This will give the service of the dlnlng-
car from Portland south during the first
day's travel and until late at night, when
it will be taken off at Ashland. Tho haul
over the mountains will be made easier
by the absence of the useless dining car
while the service will be maintained by 4

south side of the mountains at Duns
mulr in the morning for breakfast. The
same plan will be followed on the trip
from San Francisco to Portland.
Welcomed in the Valley.
This change will be welcomed by the
residents of the Willamette Valley, who
have been working with tho Southern Pa
cific for some time to have the daylight
run through that district popularised. As
It was, the great majority of desirable
prospective settlers passed through the
valley during the night time, owing to
the poor accommodations of the daylight
trains. This will now be changed, and

WANT WATER AND SEWERS
Mount Tabor People Say They Are
Anxious for Annexation.
People in that portion of Mount Tabor
included in the territory that may be an
nexed to Portland at the June election
are anxious over the outcome. They havo
no vote on the subject, as it was assumed
that they wanted annexation when they
brought the bill to the Legislature pro
viding for it; but It is a question whether
the people of Portland will vote for It.
L. S. N. Normandln, a well-known busi
ness man of Mount Tabor, who is in &
position to know the sentiment of the
people of Mount Tabor, says that un
questionably tho people out there are
anxious for annexation, largely because
they want Bull Run water and sewerage.
He says that both are needed badly. Scep
tic tanks have been introduced at a few
houses, but generally this lias not been
done, and the disposition of sewerage Is
a serious problem. It is pojnted out that
tne sewerage situation inreaxens sun
nyeide, owing to the slope in the direc
tlon of the city.
Opposition to annexation at Mount Ta
bor, .such as there is, is on account of not
taking in all of Mount Tabor School Dis
trict No. 5. Under the proposed annexa
tion only a part of the district is taken
in, and the district government itself re
mains after annexation the same as be
fore, thus depriving: people of the an
nexed portion of the Portland High
School privilege. Pupils sent to the High
School must pay tuition. However, a9
Mount Tabor has no vote one way or
the other, they can only wait the result
at the June election.

Bethany German Congregation
Adopts Plans for Structure.
Plans for a new church for the Bethany
German Presbyterian Church have been
adopted by the session, and the contract
will be let as soon as possible. The cost
of the structure, with the furniture, will
be about $3500. The building committee
has 52500 now on hand. It is expected
that the women of the church will pro
vide the furniture.
Rev. William E. Laube is the pastor.
He took up the work with Bethany Ger
man Presbyterian Church about four
years ago, and it has advanced rapidly.
The membership is now SO, having been

at the family home, 62S Fifth street, by

the fatal fall of her sister.

Captain Grltzmacher, but the child was
dead long before Policemen Wendorf and

wife could . not locate him in the after
noon, although she tried to do so. He
did not know of the fatal accident until
he reached home at dinner time.
Very little could be learned as to how
the accident happened, as Mabel's little
sister could glvo but a childish explana
tion. It is thought that the children were
walking on the Southern Pacific track,
which runs on the trestle across the
gulch, and that Mabel attempted to climb
from the trestle tcythe sidewalk, across
a space of two feet. It Is supposed she
lost her balance, and fell headlong. This
is gathered from the account given by
the little sister.

GENERAL SECRETARY HERE
Sunday School Worker Arrives to
Attend State Meeting.
Marion Lawrance, general secretary
of the organized Sunday school work,
arrived In Portland last night to
attend the Oregon State Sunday
School Association at the First Metho
dist Episcopal Church. Mr. Lawrance
serving in his official capacity visits
annually nearly every city of import
ance in the United States. He travels
about 30,000 miles each year.
"The organized Sunday school work,
which practically began with the Na
tional Sunday School Convention held
in Newark, N. J., in 1S69, has produced
results which cannot be declared in
words or figures," said Mr. Lawrance
at the Hotel Portland last night. "It
enrolls the largest army that mar
shals under one banner in the land. It
hag given to the world a new concep
tion of the 'Sunday school idea, and
aroused an Interest never shown be
fore. "It has roused the denominations to
vie with each other In a friendly but
vigorous effort to surpass not each
other, but themselves In Sunday

stimulated superintendents, encouraged
teachers and translated the Sunday
school so that the church is beginning
to understand It."

vealed last night at a meeting of the
Multnomah Democratic Club, an organ
ization of Sweekites. Malleyltes, Pow
eries and Klllfeatherltes. which has
been booming Dr. Harry Lane for the
Democratic nomination against the
Toung Men's Democratic Club, com
posed of Perryltes, Thomasltes and Al-
lenltes, which has been contending for
an open field for all candidates.
Footsore and weary, members of the
city central committee have been
trudging the streets in quest of aspir
ants for the jobs which the Democratic
brethren now seem about to give up to
the enemy without a struggle.
Club Loves Dr. Lane.
So great is the love of the Multnomah
Democratic Club for Dr. Lane that It
adopted a resolution last night calling on
all the faithful to turn out on primary day
and doff their coats and vote for him
as often as the law will permit.
Pat Powers presented the resolution
and started it off with a neat little
speech. John Lamont followed and de
clared unto all the gentlemen assem
bled that it was the duty of every
u ,vT I l ,V
member of the club to hie to the polls
and work mightily for Dr. Lane.
Bert E. Haney. secretary of the club and
of the county and city central committee,
delivered himself of remarks of the same
sort. In his opinion. Lane would surely
be nominated; still everything should be
done to load the Lane bandwagon as heav
ily as possible.
John Manning did not regard the candi
"dacy of George H. Thomas as having
much force, but advocated giving Lane
as big a vote as possible. "We ought to
show Dr. Lane we are all back of him,"
quoth Mr. Manning.
Forthwith Mr. Powers rose to remark
that whosoever should win the nomina
tion would find the club back of him in
"Back of him with a knife?" asked T.
"I never knifed any Democratic nomi

upon the club adjourned.
Heavyweights Are Present.

cil were: John Manning, Bert E. Haney,

The club's Inventory of candidates
showed that only two had come forth to

P. L. G. Wiaer.
Notwithstanding the confidence of the
Lane boomers the Thomas people are
confident, too. Mr. Thomas filed his pe
tition with the City Auditor yesterday
with 150 signatures. Sheriff Tom Word
was one of the signers. This fact set
the Lane people to wondering whether
there was a close alliance between Word
and Thomas. The question is regarded
as having considerable importance be
cause Thomas is running for the Demo
cratic nomination on the same platform
as that on which Sheriff Word has been
standing in his fight for reform.
Among the signers of the Thomas peti
tion were: John Van Zante, chairman of
the Democratic city central committee;

Overshadowing indeed is the success
of this great medicine, and compared
with it all other medicines and treat

Why has Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound accomplished its wide
spread results for good ?
Why has it lived and thrived and
done its glorious work for a quarter of
a century ?
Simply and surely because of its ster
ling worth. The reason no other med
icine has even approached its success
is plainly and positively because there
is no other medicine in the world so
good for women's ills.
The wonderful power of Lydia E.

Marvelous cures are reported from
all parts of the country by women who
have been cured, trained nurses who
have witnessed cures, and physicians
who have recognized the virtue in
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound, and are fair enough to give
credit where it is due. If physicians
dared to be frank and open, hundreds
of them would acknowledge that they
constantly prescribe Lydia E. Pink

cases of female ills, as they know by
experience that it will effect a. cure.
Women who are troubled with painful
