Delivers Eloquent and Con
vincing Address Before
Republican Club.
Speech Is Logical and to the Point.
Large Audience Hears Him.
Other Candidates Address
Those Assembled.
Had Dr. Lane. Democratic candidate
for Mayor, attended the rally of the Sell
wood Republican Club In Firemen's Hall.
Sellwood. last nisht, instead o the Demo
cratic rally In Gomez Hall, Alblna, he
-would have felt the touch of Mayor "Will
iams' oratory, gentle, however, for the
Mayor spoke of him as his "distin
guished" and "honorable" opponent.
Twice the Republican candidate for re
election mentioned his Democratic rival,
once to say that Dr. Lane's promise, as
uttered in South Portland Tuesday night,
to inspect Improvement -works for flaws
showed that the doctor had little knowl
edge of the Immensity of the task; and
again to remark that the doctor's promise
to carry out the views of the Almighty
in putting bad men to work would entail
a big job finding out what those views
were and in making them conform to
the ordinances of the city.
Furthermore, the Mayor announced that
In his speech Monday night, wherein he
was quoted as saying that the preach
ers who had attacked him were liars and
scoundrels, he Intended the "liars and
scoundrels" to be members of the Mu
nicipal Association, who before the pri
maries had Issued lying pamphlets about
his administration, alleging graft and
"I say," he declared, "that men who
publish such stuff as that about honor
able men are liars and scoundrels, and
deserve the reprobation of every honest
citizen in Portland.
"I do not wish to be understood as
having said that the clergymen are liars
and scoundrels. I belong to a church
and go there twice every Sunday to hear
the gospel preached, the pure gospel. I
certainly would not include my minister
in such a class as that."
Goes Into Detail.
The Mayor's speech covered much the
same ground as that delivered In Alblna
Monday night, but not so extensively. It
went Into more detail to show the many
improvements that have been made in
the last three years as to streets, sewers,
bridges, fills, sidewalks, ferry-boats and
the fireboat-
The attendance numbered some 200 per
sons, many of them women and children.
They applauded often and loudly. A band
of music and a vocal quartet stirred po
litical ardor with martial music
Chief over all was "William M. La
Force, who, as president of the club,
presided, made several fine speeches of
his own and Introduced the others who
had remarks to make. After Mayor
"Williams had finished he was followed by
lesser giants, such as T. C Devlin, can
didate for Auditor; L. A. McNary, for
City Attorney; George J. Cameron, for
Municipal Judge: A. G. Rushlight, for
Seventh Ward Councilman; A. X. "Wills,
for Councilman-at-Large; John P.
Sharkey, for Councllman-at-Large: Elmer
B. Colwell, chairman of the Republican
City Central Committee.
The Mayor said in part:
Many accusations have been made against
me and my administration, of one kind and
another, all of which are unfounded In fact
and can be refuted or explained to the satis
faction of every reasonable person. In the
three years I have been Mayor hundreds of
contracts have been entered Into for sewrra
and streets and bridges and boats, It would
be extraordinary if. in all this business, -there
was not something those persons might criti
cise who are disposed .to be unfriendly and to
Impute motives not consistent with honesty
and good faith.
Hero the Mayor produced a statement
from the City Auditor's office, showing by
comparison the big advance in public

Improvement an Issue.
I presume the people of Portland are more
Interested In improvement of the city than
in anything else, not excepting the as-called
moral question, ralf-ed by so-called reformers.
This matter of Improvement Is one In which
every property-owner is especially concerned.
During my administration there have been
from five to ten times as many improvements
as during the preceding three years, notwith
standing I am considered by some persona a
very old man. I have done more work than
any five Mayors who have held the office. And'
I am as physically and mentally able to per
form the duties of the office as ever in my
life. In view of all the work I have done In
the last three years, I believe that I am not
a fit candidate to be chloroformed! or kicked out
of office.
Mayor Williams explained the Tanner
Creek sewer, the Front-street bridge and
the Morrison-street bridge, and then ar
rived at Dr. Lane
Inasmuch as I' have been Mayor for three
years, necessarily I am on the defensive. My
distinguished opponent has no administration
to defend. He never has held an office. Once
be was superintendent of the Oregon State In
sane Asylum. He ceasrd to be superintendent
Perhaps you 1cnow what has been printed re
cently1 with reference to his disconnection from
the asylum. I do not wish to disparage him, but
to say that In view of -the fact that I have
held important legislative. Judicial and execu
tive, offices and have lived in Oregon S2 years
and have been Mayor of this city the last
three years, I think I may claim to be -as
well qualified to be Mayor as my honorable
My .distinguished .opponent made a speech
latt night and said that in order to show how
much better qualified he Is than I. he would
make personal examination of sewers to deter
mine whether they are good or bad. Xaw.
If he thinks It possible for the Mayor to ex
amine the SO or 40 newers under construc
tion at one time and the many streets under
improvement It Is evident that he has little
knowledge of the tasks of the Mayor.
Dr. Line also said that he was . going to
administer the affairs of the city .according to
the views of Almighty God. "Well, .I've been
so much, disturbed by the Ministerial Associ
ation and the Municipal Association that I've
had a hard time finding out what those views
are. If he Is going- to tollow out the views
of the Almighty he will have some little dif
ficulty making them conform -to the ordi
nances of the city.
Dr. Lane is a funny man and & nice man.
and I like him very much. I do not say he's
unqualified to be, Mayor, but I fall to see
what expcrleace he's had more than to
qualify Mm better than I.

ENGLISH. Scotch. Irish and Cana
diansand possibly a few Americans
who escaped being counted joined
hands together at Armory Hall last night
and became one British family to com
memorate the memory of Victoria the
Good, the late Queen of Great Britain
and Ireland. Over 1000 persons were pres
ent, and the event, although an Informal
one. was one of the big social parties of
the season.
Flags of the British Empire and United
States fairly hid the walls of Armory
Hall, and when one ascended the main
stairway an Immense Stars and Stripes
flag threw out Its welcoming folds. Near
by was the English booth, which was a
mass of fragrant roses, and suspended
from the center was a bower Qf roses.
Big and little Union Jacks lent other at
tractive color to this booth, and it was
a pleasant English picture. At this
booth, Mrs. E. T. C Stevens presided and
was assisted by Mrs. C. J. Crook. Mrs.
St. Martin, Miss St- Martin. Mrs. Blakely,
Mrs. Banfleld, Mrs. Nicholson, Mrs.
Payne. Mrs. Hastings. Miss - Nellie
Blakely and Miss Brook. But there was
a delightful nook In an adjoining cor
ner, and the glasses of green leaves and
the legend "Erin Go Bragh" on a big
flag proclaimed that Irish hospitality
would be met with there. Green was
around the table, and the foliage and
other flags were of the same color. Miss
Elizabeth Hoben. who wore a green silk
dress, presided at this booth. arjd was
assisted by Misses O'Neill, Burke, Kil
lings worth, Mazle Murphy, Trimble, Gib
son. Mcintosh, Noma Lawler, Josephine
A. Hoben, Mrs. Andrew Hoben, Dr. Emil
Asolund and Messrs. Smith, Patterson.
McDonald Patterson. Ellison. Pallant and
boys from the ship Dumfriesshire.
At the south end the lion flag of Scot
land waved, and yellow Scotch broom was
attractively nlaccd in netting, while
Union jacks lent color effect In reds, blues J
and other shades. Here Mrs. Alexander
H. BIrrclI presided, and was assisted 'by
Mrs. Gavin. Mrs. McCrea. Mrs. Smith,
Mrs. Duncan. Mrs. Baxter. Mrs. Gars on,

Carpenter Mourns Child for Dead for
10 Years, Then Chance Throws
' His Name Before the Eyes
of the Boy.
On the steamer Columbia at 12 0 this
morning a father found a son who was
was last seen when a young child and
had been mourned for dead, and now after
IS years was brought back to his father
by the accident of an advertising circular.
The man who found his boy is E. A.
Spiegel, a carpenter working at the Fair
grounds, and the patentee of a device for
generating electricity from running water.
His son is A. E. Spiegel. 19 years old,
who Is employed in a hardware and
machinery house in San Francisco.
Mr. Spiegel's wife died when the boy
was a baby. The grandmother took care
of the child, and afterwards took him
to Europe. The last Mr. Spiegel saw of
ed by Mrs. Thamer. Mrs. Howard. Mrs.
Macqueen, Mrs.. Pattullo, Mrs. Armstrong.
Mrs. Bradley, Mrs. Morgan. Mrs. Wilson.
Mrs. Barr and the Misses Stephenson and
Wilson, and by men assistants.
R. w. "Blackwood, president of the British-Bvc4cat
Society, presided, aad on
the boy was when he was 3 years old.
Much of his time has been spent In Stan
islaus County, California.
It was not for several years that Mr.
Spiegel became convinced that it was the
intention he should .never see his child
again. By that time it was hard to trace
him. A detective finally informed him
that the boy had. died.
Some months ago Mr. Spiegel sent out
descriptive circulars of his invention. One
went to the office of the firm In San Fran
cisco where his son was employed. The
fact that .the Inventor bore the same
name as the employe of the Arm induced
another employe to show him the circular.
The boy wrote to Mr. Spiegel, asking
him' If he was the father of whom he
could Icafn nothing. Letters went back
and forth, and the father and son Identi
fied themselves. That was less than three
months ago.
This week young Spiegel got a vaca
tion. He wrote his father he could come
to Portland on the Columbia. All last
evening the fathed haunted the Alnsworth
dock. It was midnight when the pas
sengers began to cross the gangplank.
The father's eyes were riveted to the port
hole from which the passengers were com
ing. One young man answered the de
scription hut not to the name when ques
tioned, and the father's face showed dis
appointment. Finally he boarded the
steamer, found the purser, and was shown
the room in which the son had retired.

NEW YORK. May 21. Manuel Ferna
dcz del Valle, Jr., a Mexican, killed him
self in his office on Lower Broadway last
night by shooting. He had tied a towel
around his neck, sat In one chair, placed
his feet on another, and then shot him
self through the mouth. Del Valle was a
member of an old and wealthy family
from Guadalajara, Mexico. Beside the
body of the suicide was found the muti
lated picture of a woman. It was torn

Mrs. Reed received a. double en

in such a manner as to conceal the name
of the photographer. The police believe
that this picture may supply the motive
for the deed.
Del Valle was about 40 years oM. and
was highly educated, being an Oxford
graduate. He was married, and his son Is

Frank C. Baker Starts the Ball of
Fortune A-Uolling.
It has been rumored from time to time
that the backers of Dr. Harry Lane were
well supplied with money which they were
attempting to wager that their candidate
would be victorious over Mayor Williams,
It was said that the Williams men were
afraid and refused to bet, even though
odds were offered them.
Yesterday afternoon Frank C. Baker
heard that the vllllams men were arrald
to put up their money, and he immediate
ly began an Investigation. He had heard
that there was "scads" of Lano money
to be had at the cigar store in the Cham
ber of Commerce building.
Upon Inquiry he was informed that
some man had left 5100 at the cigar store
to be placed on Lane at even money.
Baker at once took the bet. He says he
inquired at many other places where
Lane money was said to be plentiful, but
that the Foeler cigar store was the only
place he could find any. and that was
limited to 5100. Baker says he has more
money to bet.

Five -hundred people gathered at Go

his second speech in behalf of his can

L T. Peery did the honors of the oc

He said that he had to apologize for
not having provided chairs enough, but
that he had not expected so many to
come out to listen to what would be
said. A few nights ago the hall had been
filled to listen to one who was a man of
National prominence, and ex-Attorney-
Gcneral of the United States, an ex-Sen
ator, and a man whom he trusted would
In a short time be an ex-Mayor of Port
land. The crowd, which wa3 Democratic.
laughed a little at the wit, while he ended
his remarks by presenting Dr. Lane, who
spoke briefly on his desire to be Mayor.
The candidate did not speak at much
length, owing perhaps to the fact that
John M. Gearin had taken up a good
deal of the time with his address, which
had come first In order. He confined his
remarks to outlining to a certain extent
what he would do If he were placed at
the head of the city affairs and held to
the statement that his administration if
he were elected would be a fearless and
an honest one. - He said he stood upon
the platform of the best Interests of the
city and a fair and Impartial enforcement
of the laws as they were to be found.
High Ideals Necessary.
"I do not believe that I am the best
citizen in the city, or the best man,"
said the speaker in commencing his ad
dress. "I do not believe that it Is nec
essary for me to hold office to insure
the salvation of the city, but I do hold
that high ideals re necessary for the
man who gives a good administration
when In office.
"I hold high ideals for the man who
holds office. I have spent my life in
looking at the careers of those who
have been honored by their fellowmcn,
and when one such has not come up to
the standard which ho should have set
for himself In the administration of his
office, then it makes me angry. I think
that the most sacred trust which can be
reposed in a citizen of the United
States Is the trust shown him by con
ferine office upon him. I look- upon
such trust as greater than wealth or
eloquence or place. I think that It is
the greatest honor that can be con
ferred upon man. And to merit It the
man must honor the trust and be de
serving of It. I never held an. oflico
except that at the Asylum and I am
willing for my record there to stand
for what I have done and for what I
would do.
Would Execute Laws.
"When a man has an office and can
not control the men under him. he is
not fit to hold a position qf public
trust. If I were to be elected and a
man under me were to do a dishonest
thing, I would remove him as soon as I
could do so. If I am elected I will
execute the laws as I find them, honest
lv and fearing no man or set of men.
"It has been said that for purposes
of revenue It became necessary to levy
tribute on. the gamblers of the city, but
the tribute was levied upon a coterie
and not upon a class. Those who did
not nay revenue could not operate and
not all could pay or were allowed to do
so. But what I want to say is: iou

The money yoij would get is stolen; it

My quartet would not draw much from
the interests I have to be up against in
this fight.
Would Be Honest and Clean.
"I want to say that if I am elected I

what duty has for me to do, and at tne

audience called for Sheriff Word, and he
responded by saying all his desire was
that the people would vote ior Dr. Lane.

Tom Word attends to his business 'as
Sheriff, and keeps his hands off the city
affairs. I will attend to the business of

which he reviewed the first speech made
by Mayor Williams, and argued for the

When the Food Is Not Suited.
When Nature gives her signal that some
thing Is wrong it is generally with the
food; the old Dame is always faithful, and
one should act at once.
To put off the change is to risk that
which may be Irreparable. An Arizona
man says:
"For, years I could not safely eat any
breakfast. I tried..all kinds of breakfast
foods', but they were all soft, starchy
messes, which gave me distressing head
aches. I drank strong coffee, too, which,
appeared to benefit me at the time, but
added to the headaches afterward. Toast
and coffee were no better, for I found the
toast very constipating.
"A friend persuaded me to quit the old
coffee and the starchy breakfast foods
and use Postum Coffee and Grape-Nut3
instead. I shall never regret taking his
advice. I began using them three months
"The change they have worked in me Is
wonderful. I now have no more- of the
distressing sensations in my stomach after
eating, and I never have any "headaches.
I have gained 12 pounds In weight and
feel better In every way. Grape-Nuts
make a delicious as well as . a nutritious
dish, and I find that Postum Coffee Is
easily digested and never produces dys
pepsia, symptoms."
