THIS aiOKJS'JLNlx OKiSliOJyJLaLN, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1905. 1,. TO FINISH RQRD IN Sffl MONTH Powerful Steam Shovels Used on' Riparia-Lewiston Construction. NEEDvSCORES OF LABORERS Lou Water In Snake Illver Retarded Progress and Difficulty Has Been Experienced in Se- curing Workmen. - Work on the Riparia-Lcwiston branch of the O. R. & N. Is beingpushed as rap idly as possible. In the face of somewhat adverse conditions, and at the present tlmethree miles of the roadbed have been entirely finished, whH'e-rails .have Teen laid for two miles of -that distance. The rough work has been done for the greater part of the way between Rlp'arla ''and Lewiston, while .the survey has been opened for the entire length of the -line. Today two new 90-ton steam shovels will be started -to -work by the contract ors, one at Rlparia and the other about 13 miles up the Snake River. Both, of these shovels were recently purchased at Marion. O., and have been waiting' for some time for the river to reach such a stage that they could be taken up to the place where their services are re quired. Besides, these two shovels the company npw has another large one at work further up the line. For the transportation of the shovels from one place to another along the line of the grade, the engineers have Just built a large barge 60 feet in width by 160 feet. in length.- This barge cost more than $4000, and will be uied throughout the construction work, as the shovels are too heavy and cumbersome to be loaded upon and unloaded from the steamers plying the upper river. There are now approximately 600 mon employed In the construction work, and during the past Summer the contractors have been having difficulty in lindlng la borers. Now that the harvest work is done and men are more plentiful, it Is the Intention of those in charge of the work to increase the force until from loOO to ISOO will be employed. The entire line from Iewlston to Rlpa ria was to have been completed by April 1. but, owing to the low stage of the Snake River, which Interfered with or prevented the transportation of construc tion tools and material for four or five weeks, the end of the task will be put off for about that length of time. It is now expected by the engineers in charge that the last spike will be driven between the first and the middle of May. The work Is being helped along In some measure by the existing grade, made some live years ago, parts of which are still Intact. Owing to the fact, however, that the new survey diverges from the old In many places. In order that a hlgh-ppced line could be constructed, not so much of the old grade could be utilized as would otherwise have been the case. Pacific May Enter Seattle. SEATTLE. Wash... Oct. 24. (Special.) A "common-user" clause in the franchises of the Hill roads entering Seattle will make It possible for the new Pacific Rail road and the interests behind that enter prise, to enter the city if the Council grants a franchise. The ordinance pro vides that tracks on public streets may be used upon a lAutually agreed or arbi trated basis by any new line granted a . franchise by the city and reaching those lines. This would permit the Pacific road to reach Its terminals here over tho Hill linos, for they are laid on public streets. The terminal tracks of the Hill lines laid on private property are exempted from the common-user provision. Spends $100,000 in Advertising. The Southern Pacific Company has just spent what Is. perhaps the largest amount ever expended by a single rallrond for special foreign advertising. In tho cur rent numbers of the London magazines large advertisements are appearing de scriptive of the things to be seen on the line.pf the Southern Pacific from Portland to Los Angeles. All of the advertise , monts are full page expositions of the country- through' -which the line passes, and are entitled, "A Land of a Thousand Wonders, Portland to Los Angeles on the Southern Pacific." For these few adver tisements the company has spent by spe cial appropriation 5100,000. SIX SILL SONS SI SHOW THEN PARENTS TOOK YOUTHS HOME FROM STATION. Boys Trespassed in Order to Watch Actors Through Skylights and Were Caught. Six small boys, all" under the age of IS years, while gazing with rapture tnrough the skylight of the Grand Theater at the production beneath, and all unconscious that policemen were watching them, -were arrested last night and takon to police headquarters where a charge of trespass was placed against tnem. unable to raise the price of 10 cents to go through the front door and anxious to. see the show the four perched upon the skylight and were criticising the actions of the actors and actresses when interrupted. Angry mothers and irate fathers, upon being notified that their sons were at the station, hurried there forthwith and demanded to know why their off spring 'wore under arrest. ".What is my -son In here for?" de manded Mrs. Smith, whose boy. Dean, wag sitting on a bench eating peanuts. 'iHe 'is arrested for trespass, madam. and you are hereby notified to take him before the Juvenile Court at 10 o'clock .tomorrow." said Captain Moore "Well, this is a nice show," I must say,' said Mrs Smith. "Do I have to no tlfy you policemen every time I let my boy out of the house after 8 o'clock? Dean, you come home with me, I'll see about this." "Say. is this the police tatlon7" tel ephonou Mrs. Hoover, nvhose son Charles whs receiving peanuts from Dean at the time. "Well, I heard about you arresting Charlie and I want him sent home this mlnuto. Charlie Is a good boy, do you hear? .you have no right to arrest him.' "Come to the police station," 6ald Captain Moore. Mrs. Hoover hurried to the rescue of 3ier son and taking her boy affection ately -by the hand, and looking daggers at the captain, hurried Ahe youth through the gates, saylngj that she CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS, FIRST DISTRICT - 'NO. Ill i '"' ' ' , i 1 HON. CHARLES B. MOORES. OF MARION COUNTY. j Come hither, brothers and sisters, while we endeavor to torture the long-sufforing Queen's English Into yielding up a few lustrous contribu tions to our land's literature. My purpose on this exalted occasion is to toll you what I don't know about Charles B. Moores. According ta all the misinformation I have been able to annex, Mr. Moores sneaked Into being in the state that Joe Folk made famous. He was quite young at the time of his birth, but has since got over It to the extent of about 55 Summers. At the age of half-past-three he took his parents by the hand and hit the trail for Oregon. Moores' ancestors are so entangled with the history of this state that one can scarcely wander back three paces along the corridors of time without bumping Into great-great-grandfather, or some other branch of the genealogical tree. Our subject's assertion that he has Irish blood in his veins Is fully substantia tod by the singular grace with which he holds public office. His zeal for the people's welfare has led him to accept at different times, the office of Councilman of Salem, trustee of "Willamette University. Speaker bf the Oregon House of Representatives, shortstop in Al Crossman's la comparable baseball nine, and Register of the Land Office at Oregon City. In addition to thus bunch' of fame, Mr. Moores Is also credited with hav ing, aided by some black paint and a brush, and in tho Interest of art, con verted Dr. Towers' white mare Into a zebra. A few of Moores detractors maintain that this honor rightfully belongs to W. D. Fenton. but the evi dence rests conclusively with the former. In his candidacy for the Congressional nomination. Moores has an nounced In unequivocal terms that he favors deeper water and a porcelain bottom for every river and harbor In the state. The citizens of Coos Bay, Ncstucca, Tillamook. Yaqulna and Alsea. appreciating his noble stand, have drawn up resolutions Indorsing him In the most enthusiastic manner. Each of these future metropolises has received positive assurance that Congressman Moores' ' first official duty will be to make It the lending port -of the NorthwcSt. Moores is a graduate of Willamette, Pennsylvania and Michigan Uni versities. The way he loots the alphabet In order o represent his various titles and degrees is absolutely Inhuman. Tho future Congressman (perhaps) has but one vice, that of attending pioneer reunions, state fairs and alumni banquets. In the accompanying masterpiece I have assassinated him In the act of presiding over one of the latter. HARRY MURPHY. would take her son before the Judge but that the - police would suffor.

"we wanted to soe tho thenter and the cops arrested me." "Well. I'll attend to him captain. George come with me." "Those bovs are bad eggs." said Cap tain Moore, as the parents of Joe Spady, Eddie Tllden and George Olson bristled up to the desk and demanded to know the reason why. One after another the young Ameri cans vanished from the oyos of the up holders of, the law after a promise had been obtained from tholr parents to bring them before Judge Frazer of tho Juvenile Court.

Sum Now Available Is Only Half Enough to Care for Needs of " Injurqd Frenchwoman. The sum of $14 was added yesterday to the relief fund for Miss Anna Loubet, the young Frenchwoman who sustained a broken back through a recent fire at th Statehousc Inn, near the Exposition grounds. The sum now available for the sufferer Is less than $225. barely half enough for the expenditures necessary to pay hospital fees and remove her to the French hospital at San Francisco for sci entific treatment. Yesterday's contribu tions received at The Oregonlan office totaled $9. Five of this amount was sub scribed by Mrs. "G. W. L.," $1 by Miss L.." and $3 by "Cash. The sum of $5 additional was left at tho office of Secretary' Heed, at the Exposition, by Paul Wesslnger. While a number of Portlanders re sponded promptly and liberally It Is be lieved funds have been received more slowly than the cause deserves. Miss Loubet Is an orphan, without friends or relatives in America. The fire destroyed all her personal effects excepting a Bible. which she saved. She. sustained a broken back by leaping from a second story of the inn to prevent Incineration. She is now confined to a hospital ward in a helpless condition. Contributions will be received as before by The Oregonlan and the money, when a sufilclent sum has been received, will be turned over to French Consul Labbe. He will arrange for the care of the hapless sufferer in a strange land, and for her removal to San Francisco. Great Former Sentenced to Prison. ST. JOSEPH, Mo.. Oct. 24. W.

MUSTSUPPORTWIFE Samuel Goldstein Has Until Noon to Make Payment. WARNED BY JUDGE FRAZER Deposit $50 In Court or the Alterna tive Is Jail Sentence for Con . tempt of Court Plain tiff Is a Tailor. If Samuel Goldstein, a tailor doing. business at 267i Everett street, does not pay $50 for the support of his wife and two children before 12 o'clock to day to the Clerk of the State Circuit Court, he will be committed to the County Jail for contempt of court. Judge Frazer made this declaration yesterday ufternoon, after hearing ar guments of attorneys for. the wife, Mrs. Betslc Goldstein, on a motion for ali mony, and hearing the evidence of a number of witnesses. A certificate of deposit In a local bank in favor of Goldstein, not yet due, which was In possession of Mrs. Goldstein, was turned over to the Court Clerk, to be held for her benefit. Goldstein said he had. tried to borrow $50. and said M. Kutner, Ben Klegman. 51. Ostrow and L. Ryan had all refused him. Wit nesses contradicted this statement, and said Goldstein had readily borrowed $150 on one occasion. Goldstein also said his wle had J 1000 in a safety-deposit vault, which she denied, and said that In April last she gave hlnvJSOO under strong persuasion on hls'rpart. saying at the time: "Now you will be good to me, won t your Judge Frazer was inclined to the be lief that the certificate of deposit for $200 represented a part of this $o00. Addressing- Goldstein, the court said: 'I think you can borrow money if you want to, and I believe that you have money. You must pay $50 Into court by 12 o'clock tomorrow for the support of your wife and children or I will commit you to Jail for contempt. There has always been some question of the right of a court to do this in a enrse of this kind, but In the present In stance I think the court would be justified in taking such a step, and I think the court has the authority, lou must support your wife and these chil dren, and if you do not pay $50 .into court by 12 o'clock tomorrow, I will 6end you to Jail.' The Goldsteins were married In New York in 1S94. In her complaint for a divorce. Mri Goldstein accuses her husband of beatlnir and abusing her. and says ne threw dishes at hor and threatened to take her lite.

Palmer, De fendants, Contend That the Leak Was Xot Mended. A plumbing bill for $7 was the basis of a suit tried before Judge George yesterdny, and the evidence was so conflicting that the case wa!s con tinued until today for further testi mony. The plaintiff was G. W. Far rier, a plumber, doing business at Montavllla, and W. I Bartlett and M. E. Palmer the defendants. Farrier contends that nearly a year ago he repaired a leaky pipe so that water would not drip under a sink, and run out onto the kitchen floor. He testified that he removed walnscottlng; which was tongued and grooved, and to do so and make a neat Job. sawed the tongue oft one of the boards, and after taking It out replaced it in good style. Farrier said he found the coupling- cracked, and replaced It with a new one. He said the job was well done. The defendants contended that the leak continued, and that they did not believe Farrier ever made the repair at all. Farrier said there was no further leak, but that water splashed from the sink and g6t under it because there was no splashboard. The de fendants asserted that there was al ways a splashboard, and Farrier said It was put there after this trouble com menced, and that this -was evident, be cause the wall behind It Is hard-finished, which would not have been the case If the splashboard- was put in when the house was built. To further complicate matters, In February last the plpe'frozc and was taken out and replaced.
