Automobilists, Foodsellers and
Vendors, of Intoxicating
Liquor Are Affected.
WHIPPING-POST IS READY
Iiashes'Aro Not for- the Classes of
Citizens Mentioned Above, Tbutf
; for Men Who Beat
SALEM, Or., May -17. (Special.) Fri
day morning the laws papsed by the
legislature will be in full force and
efTect and those who would avoid trouble
will do well to inform themselves as to
the new requirements and be careful inot
to violate the statutes. Many of the new
laws are such as are not likely to be vio
lated, very frequently, while others are
laws for "the prohibition of certain acts
that are committed dally. .
The new automobile law, the pure-food
law and the" law forbidding the sale of
liquor to minor females arc among the
new enactments that are likely to cause
troublo unless carefully observed. The
whipping-post law, the law for the pun
ishment of macqueraux and the hunter's
'Icensc law arc others that are quite
likely to be called to public attention by
means of their enforcement.
Regulation of Automobiles.
The automobile law requires every
owner of an automobile to file his name
and address in the office of the Secretary
of State, together with a brief descrip
tion of his vehicle, and to secure from
the Secretary a certificate bearing a cer
tain number. The fee for such certificate
The owner of the automobile must place
upon the back of his vehjclc In a con
spicuous place the number and the let
ters "Ore." Thus, if the number of his
certificate be 27, he will have on the back
of his auto, the characters "27-ORE."
The characters must be light colored, on
a dark background, and not less than
three Inches high. The purpose of this
requirement is to furnish evidence with
which to identify any machine that mav
be operated contrary to law.
The law further requires that each auto
must be provided with a lighted lamp at
night, with the number painted on the
glass of the lamp. Every auto must be
provided with a "muffler" and with a
good brake. Whenever an automobile
approaches a vehicle drawn by a horse
or horses, precaution must be taken not
to scare the animals and if the horse or
horses appear frightened the speed of the
machine must be reduced until the driver
has his team under control. If the driver
so requests by means of signals, the auto
must be stopped.
The maximum speeds of automobiles
in this State are as follows: In the
thickly settled or business part of a city.
Hght miles an hour: within 100 yards o(
any vehicle drawn by a horse or horses,
eight miles an hour: on the public high
ways outside a city or village, 2 miles
an hour: over any city or village cross
walk when any person Is upon the amf.
four miles an hour. At all times the
speed at any place must be reasonable,
having due regard for the traffic and use
of the road by others.
Penalties are by fine of not to exceed
$23 for the first offense, X50 for the sec- i
ond offense and f 100 for each succeeding !
Butter, Milk, Ice-Cream.
The pure-food law is a lengthy statute j
and not easily summarized Tho follow
ing are articles of food that arc deemed !
to he adulterated: Ice-cream that con- 1
tains less than 12 per cent butter fat;
cream that contains less than 20 per cent
butter fat: butter that contains more
than 16 per cent water: milk that con
tains less han 3.2 er cent butter fat and
9 per cent of solids other than butter fat.
Reworked uutter must be plainly
marked "process butter" and butter that
has been packed must be marked "tub.
butter." The sale of imitation butter is
prohibited but uncolorcd oleomargarine
may be sold if marked to show the con
sumer its real character. In public eat
ing rooms where oleo, renovated butter
or process butter are served, that fact
must be shown by the bill of fare and
by conspicuous notices posted in the din
ingroom. All cheese offered for sale must be
branded as follows: Full cream cheese.
If it contains not less than 3 per cent
butter fat: half skimmed cheese, if It
contains not less than 15 per cent butter
fat: three-quarter skimmed cheese if it
contains 72 per cent butter fat: skimmed
cheese. If it contains less than 7- per
cent butter fat.
The hunter's license law requires that
every person hunting in this state must
secure an annual Hcenp? from the County
Clerk, paying therefor 31. A license ex
pires at the end of the calendar year, re
gardless of. the date of issue. Nonresi
dents must pay a fee of 310 for a license.
The law does not apply to families hunt
ing on their own land.
Xo Liquor to Minor Females.
The law relating to the sale of liquor to
minor females provides a fine of 3100 to
S1000 as punishment for any person who
shall sell or give Intoxicating liquors to
a female under 21 years of age. The same
penalty is provided for any proprietor or
employe of any liquor-selling establish
ment who shall permit a minor female to
remain In any place where Intoxicating
liquors arc o!d or served. ThI.i docs not
apply to a female accompanied by her
parent or husband or to any open and
public restaurant or dining-room.
The law for the punishment of macquer
eaux provide that If any person shall
live with a prostitute or live wholly or In
part off of her earnings or shall solicit
for her. he shall be guilty of a felony and
shall be punished by Imprisonment In the
penitentiary one to five years, or fine of
31000 to 35000.
Whipping-Post for Wlfe-Bcatcrs.
The whipping-post law provide that a
man convicted of assault and battery upon
his wife may be. -in the .discretion of the
trial Judge, punished by the infliction of
not to exceed 20 lashes, administered by
the Sheriff or constable.
Other Xcw Laws.
Among other laws which go into effect
Friday morning, and which have general
application, are the following:
The law making one-half a man's wages
liable to execution for the payment of
debts incurred for family expenses.
The law requiring that insane patients
shall be -taken to the Insane asylum by
attendants sent out from the asylum.
The law authorizing the Governor, Sec
retary of State . and State Treasurer to
appoint a Tax Commission, composed of
three men. whose duty it shall be to study
laws relating to assessment and taxation
an report to the next Legislature.
The law forbidding the exhibition of
The law prevMlsc "for the, appointment
f s state engineer y the Governor, upon
j the recommendation of the director of the
J United States Geological Survey.
I The' lav making it mandatory upon
i County Courts to levy an annual school
I library tax sufficient to raise a sum
equivalent to 10 cents per capita upon the
children of the. county between the ages
of 4 and 20 years.
It will ' require the employment of
four more men and three more women
as attendants at the asylum to carry
out the requirements of the new law
governing- the transportation of insane
patients. The increase in the force will
be by the employment of Inexperienced
persons to take subordinate positions,
while experienced attendants will be
sent out to bring the patients to the
asylum. The newly-employed persons
will be put on duty as assistants on
wards where there are now two at
tendants and one of the three can be
spared when necessary to send out for
In the case of female patients
brought from a short distance, a female
attendant will be sent. Where the trip
is long, two attendants, a man and his
wife, will be sent.
Superintendent Calbreath has received
bids from local cabmen on carriage
service from the depot to the asylum,
and .will probably accept the offer of J.
A. Simpson to carry the patients at 51
each. He believes this to be cheaper
than he can carry the patients with a
state team, for he would have a tele
phone or telegraph expense on nearly
every trip. t
CHURCHES VERY PROSPEROUS
Report Brought by Delegates to Tho
Dalles District Conference.
HOOD RIVER, Or., May 17. (Special.)
Thirty-seven different charges are rep
resented at The Dalles District Con
ference of the Methodist-Episcopal
Church, which convened in this city last
night. Elder G. M. Booth is presiding
at the conference with Rev. Walton Skip
worth, of The Dalles, secretary. Reports
this morning from the various charges
throughout the district show a larger
increase in membership the last year
than during the former 12 months. The
financial condition in the district is ex
cellent, so the various pastors report.
Rev. W. J. Baldwin, of Arlington, led
the devotional exercises this morning. "Is
the Epworth League Meeting Its Orig
inal Intention," was an able paper by
Rev. John Evans, of Moro. The second
paper of the day was by Rev. Robert
Warner, who discussed the business prin
ciples and methods in church finance.

Oak Wagon That Crossed the Plains
Fifty Years Ago to Be His
Home on the Trip.
SEATTLE. Wash.. May 17. (Special.)
Driving an ox team attached to an
original "prairie schooner" of the vin
tage of o2, Ezra Meeker, historian and
pioneer of Washington, will retrace the
Oregon trail this summer and will camp
with his "outfit" on the banks of the
Willamette Slough long enough to take
a peep at the World's Fair.
Mr. Meeker says that he will charter
the real thing, in the shape of a stout
, oak wagon, which has been enjoying
i for 50 years past well-earned retire?
Iment in an old shed on the banks of the
Cowlitz River. It played its part in
: the march of the pioneers across the
prairies in the early '50s. Mr. Meeker
says that in order to show the people
at the Fair just how the pathfinders
lived In the early Oregon days he will
rehabilitate that old ox cart, and cov
ering it with a snow-white canopy
properly inscribed "Oregon or Bust"
he will make the journey over again
from the Sound to Portland, and there
pitch his tent and tell the visitors how
it all happened in '52.
"You see.' said Mr. Meeker, "when
they talk about pioneer days and the
Oregon pioneers of the World's Fair at
Portland, the passion gets hold of me
to journey back there In the same old
style and over the same old trail. There
will be a lot of men and women of
Oregon, gray-haired and grizzled like
myself, who will come to see what
wonderful progress the country has
made In 50 years. They'll contrast
times today with their own ways of
living1 and doing when they crossed the
plains to the Columbia River In the
Mr. Meeker will sleep in the open

GOLD CAN BE SEEN
Rich Rock From New District
in Baker County.
NEAR OLD PLACER GROUND
Locators Have Delved Beneath the
Surface-, and Find the Values
Increase With Depth of
BAKER' CITY. Or., May 17. (Special.)
News has been brought to town of an
important discovery in an entirely new
section, and one that Is apt to cause quite
a ripple of excitement among the mining
men In this district. Bert Caviness, who
is one of the discoverers, with L. B.
Akers, was brought to Baker City for
medical treatment at the hospital. He
says they have developed a ledge of a
width of iVt feet, which gives an assay of
$1S3 per ton. The rock is very free and
shows gold visible to the naked eye
throughout the whole extent.
The locators have exploited the ledge
with surface work, with open cuts for
over 700 feet, and also with a tunnel,
which intersects the vein at a depth of
108 feet. The tunnel is 140 feet in length,
and where the tunnel cuts the vein the
ore shows values running higher than
that found upon the surface. This vein
lies just a little above the old placer
diggings which were all worked out over
30 years ago.
The location of this new find may be
described as being distant from Baker
City about 50 miles, nearly south In Baker
County, and about S'fc miles from the Mal
heur County line. It Is six miles from
the Mount Rastus discovery and about
5j2 miles from the town of Unity. The
vein lies right on the slope of Bull Run
Mountain, a point well known to all
prospectors In that region.
The celebrated Eldorado ditch runs near
the new discover", and will be used to
furnish water for milling purposes. Both
Bert Caviness and Akers are well known
all over Eastern Oregon as persistent and
hardworking prospectors and no one will
begrudge them any good fortune.
OREGOX CITY MAYOR PASSES IT
UP TO COUNTY AUTHORITIES.
If Games Are Allowed Elsewhere
They Will Be Permitted In
OREGON CITY. Or.. May 17.-(Special.)
"If the county authorities permit the
operation of a gambllng-housc at Mllwau
kle, gambling will be allowed right here
In Oregon City." stated Mayor E. A. Som
mer today In discussing the situation In
Clackamas County. "So far as the re
port that ,'Frcnchy Gratton Intends to
start a gambling-house In Oregon City is
concerned. I will state that no such Inten
tion has been Indicated on the part of
Mr. 3ratton. nor would such a .proposal
be considered from Mr. Gratton or any
"On two occasions I have Interviewed
Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Schuebel,
and he assured me that there would not
be tolerated in Clackamas County any
gambllng institutions whatever. I told
him that if he adhered to that policy that
there would be no gambling In Clackamas
County, for the city authorities would not
countenance anything of the kind.
"But if a gambling-house is started in
Milwaukle or any other place -so conveni
ently located to Oregon City by men who
have been driven out of Portland, or by
any other person?, we will make Oregon
City an open town In the true sense of
the term. And what t more, gambling
will be licensed and the proceeds will be
turned Into the city treasury. Games will
also be under police regulation."
Mayor Sommer was not elected on a
closed-town platform, neither did he
premise any radical reforms. The only
pledge he made was the strict enforce
ment of city ordinance? respecting the
relations of the saloons and minors, and
he has vigorously pursued that, course.
Other than for poker playing, Oregon
City has been a closed town for a year,
and during the last few weeks this game
has been driven from the ground floor to
It 1 generally believed that a strict
enforcement of this policy on the part of
Mayor Sommer will so arouse public sen
timent that gambling of every descrip
tion will be entirely suppressed In the
county within another year.
