IN IN. 1 KING
Proceedings Are Begun for His
Removal by Councii of
DECIDED FOUR TO THREE
Councilman P. J Peterson Is Also
Included in the Proceedings,
and an Effort Will Be
Made to Oust Him.
Impeachment proceedings -tvera started
last night at the meeting of the St Johns
Council for the removal of Mayor W. H.
King and Councilman P. J. Peterson, the
charges being read by Councilman J. H.
Shields. All the seven Councllmen -were
present, and Mayor King presided.
The little room in which the meetings
of the Council are held was packed to
suffocation, and many remained standing
at the open windows outside to hear the
At the opening, after the minutes of
the former meetings were read and ap
proved, Mayor King said: "We will now
elect a successor to Mr. Edwards." This
started matters. Mr. Shields then arose
and read the charges on which to base
an action for the removal of the Mayor
and Councilmn Peterson from office. He
had scarcely taken his seat when Coun
cilman W. H. Brice was on his feet read
ing resolutions directing the City Attor
ner to prepare charges and specifications
and serve them on both Mayor King" and
Councilman Peterson. The City Attorney
was directed to proceed at once with the
preparation of the complaints and serve
on both the Councilman and Mayor, who
shall have five days in which to answer.
IiOng and Bitter Controversy.
Following the reading the articles of
Impeachment and resolutions there was
a short silence, when Councilman Shields
moved the adoption of the resolution.
Councilman Leggett, president of the
Council, arose and put the motion over
the head of the Mayor, and it was car
ried by four votes those of Leggett,
Shields, Brice and Edwards.
Then followed a long and bitter contro
versy between Attorney McBarry, who
represented Mr. Edwards, Attorney TV.
T. Vauhan and Ogelby Young, who rej
resented Mayor King and Councilman
Peterson. Mr. Peterson demanded that
Councilman Edwards be tried and his
name cleared of every imputation. The
other attorney contended that Edwards
was not a member. The squabble lasted
until 10 o'clock last night, and finally
resulted in the City Attorney being in
structed to go ahead with the proceed
ings against Peterson and the Mayor, on
There was some very bitter words be
tween Edwards and Peterson. Edwards
said that Peterson had reported he would
be ready to produce evidence when the
The text of the charges on which im
peachment proceedings against the Mayor
and Councilman have been started, is as
That your petitioner in Informed and be
lieves and therefore charges that P. J. Peter
son, a member of said Council, together with
one W. H. King, Mayor of the City of St.
Johns, have. In violation of their public du
ties, entered Into a conspiracy with other per
sons to disrupt the Common Council, disfran
chise the citizens and impose upon the city
other undesirable officials for the purpose of
permitting the applicants for liquor to exploit
the city to their own advantace.
That your petitioner is Informed and be
licres and therefore charges one P. J. Peter
son, a member of this Council, with basely
entering Into Illegal and clandestine negotia
tions with a certain liquor dealer to obtain
for him, for a valuable consideration, a license
to sell liquor to the City of St. Jobne.
That your petitioner Is Informed and believes
and therefore charges that said T H. King
has on divers occasions made offers and pub
licly announced his willingness to pay large
pums of money to certain members of this
Council in consideration of their withdrawing
from its membership and resigning their said
offices; that said offers and announcements
are of a character involving moral turpitude,
and were manifestly made by the said King
ior the purpose of corrupting the City Council
and bringing the members thereof into public
Infamy and disgrace.
That your petitioner therefore prays .that
the said P. J. Peterson and the said W. H.
King be suspended Iroxa participation in the
deliberations of the honorable body; that they
each of them be required to stand trial before
this honorable body upon the charges herein
made, and that if found guilty of such charges
that they and each of them be permanently
removed from their respective offices In ac
cordance with the provisions of the charter in
such case made and provided.
A few small items of business were
transacted. There is now a doubt who
is Mayor of St. Johns, Mr. King, who is
under charges, or Councilman Leggett,
president, of the Council. It looks as if
there might le two city governments set
up in St. Johns. City Attorney Greene
took no part in the proceedings last
night, except to say that under the con
stitution of the state a public officer could
not be Impeached. Attorney McGarry,
however, held differently. The City At
torney said he would obey the orders of
the Council. Citizens of St Johns are
disgusted over the situation, and an in
dignation meeting will be held some
time this week.

"What the Press Agents S.
KENDALL'S BIG SUCCESS.
Favorite Comedian Presents New
Play to a Crowded House.
"Tbe host ever," was the verdict of the
crowded house as the people filed out of
the Marquani Grand Theater last night
after witnessing the comedian you all
know, Ezra Kendall, and his excellent
supporting company, in the beautiful
play, "Weather-Beaten Benson." That it
was a "drenching success" is true both
literally and financially you will have to
see this funny comedy-drama to appreci
ate the first, and the packed house will
verify the latter statement. Never before
has Mr. Kendall presented In Portland a
play that made the hit this one has.
Seven and eight curtain calls after each
act but slightly express the sentiment of
the big audience. "Weather-Beaten Ben
son" will be the bill tonight and tomorrow
night Begjnnlng Thursday night and
continuing tbe romainder of the week,
"The Barn Stormer." by Sidney Rosen
feld, will be presented for the first time
on any stage. The Marquam is on Mor
rison street between Sixth and Seventh.
Beats are now selling for the entire week.
"ALICE" AT THE BEL AS CO
Nothing So Successful as "Alice of
Old Vincennes" Ever Offered.
Belasco Stock Company struck itJ
very best gait last night when It pre
sented for the first time in the "West the
brilliant historical romantic drama, "Al
ice of Old Vincennes." A year or two
ago the most popular novel of the day
was this oplc story of the conquest of the
Northwest Territory by George Hodgers
Clark and his valient little army while
their compatriots on the Atlantic sea
board wore fighting the tyrinnlcal British.
Interwoven with the incidents of camp
and field is the beautiful love story of
Alice, the charming daughter of the wil
derness, and the brave young Virginia
officer. Miss Lillian Lawrence, recognized
as the leading stock actress in America,
made her first appearance as leading
woman with the Bolaeco forces and fairly
captured her audience. She and Will
Walling make an admirable team of
leading people, and the company now
ranks as the most perfect organization of
Its kind in the land. "Alico of Old Vin
cennes" will continue for an entire rfeek.
and theatorgoers will find it the best
theatrical entertainment in many months.

The accompanying photograph of a group of American miners Is from the
collection of J. H. Hutchinson and was taken at midnight June IS, 1805, at

Back of them was tbe Arctic Ocean, only thre miles away. East Cape ef Siberia
was only 40 miles distant '
There will be no performances on Sat
urday evenings, as the companies will
leave for San Francisco aftor the Satur
day matinee. A new company opons every
week with the Sunday matinee. This
week the Fay Foster company Is the at
traction, and has set theater-goors talk
ing as nothing else has done in a long
time. This company has always been a
favorite with burlesque lovers, but this
season it is larger and bettor than ever,
and presents many Interesting novelties.
Scenery, costumes and electrical effects
are on a magnificent scale, and -are said
to eclipse anything heretofore seen with
this lino of attractions. Two lively trav
esties and a brilliant array of vaudeville
talent complete the bill. "The Mysterious
Mrs. Raffles" Is the title of the closing
part This is a take-off on the recent
hunt for Raffles, which caused such a
stir throughout the East Louie Dacre,
the happy girl, is seen as Mrs. Raffles.
"Cleopatra in Central Park" is the title
of the opening part
A male Anna Bva Fay is tho stellar
attraction at the Grand this week.
He calls himself the Great - Tatum,
and barring the speech which he
makes at the commencement of his
performance, he does a frood many
stunts which siiem to warrant his nom
de theater. He finds hidden articles,
answers questions, makes predictions
and generally mystifies his audience
with his alleged occult powers. Hart
Bessie & Co. do a character change
act which makes a hit, sbxne of tho
impersonations being very lifelike, par
ticularly those of Gladstone and the
late Pope Leo. The Do Fay team of
musical artists is one of the best re
cently seen here, the best feature of
their act boing the playing of "Alice
Where Art Thou?" by whirling metal
discs. The Buckeye Trio do an inter
esting acrobatic turn and Fred Purin
ton sings "Down on the Farm" very
'Musical Kleist is the topllner at the
Star this week. Here is a man' who
seems to have a genius for novel ef
fects and his act is remarkably good.
His act Is the sort that the high
priced vaudeville houses in the East
feature and should prove a big draw
ing card at the Star this week. He
gives nls performance on a darkened
stage and tho weird effects produced
are little short of startling. It is alto
gether a commendable act The bill as
a whole, is perhaps tho beet ever of
fered by this theater, and includes
Melville & La Zelle in their funny
sketch "Jack tho Hugger," Tarick &
La" Londe in character changes, Walter
Perry, one of the best monologlsts in
the business, Roy McBraln's illustrated
song and tho moving pictures.

and who were so rudely "pinched" by
Headquarters Detectives Carpenter and
Resin?. Therefore, he proposes to re
arrest tho whole bunch. Yesterday morn
ing Detective Carpenter appeared In the
Municipal Court and asked Deputy City
Attorney Fitzgerald for warrants.
Not wishing to "butt In" on the game
at this stage of the affair, Mr. Fitzgerald
instructed Detective Carpenter to go to

Right here, stories differ as to what
