Appeal to Officers of Law to Prevent
Arrest of Children. j
Mothers and fathers of 13 little chil

Last week a Junk shop at 355 Water
street, owned by TL Schnltzer. was
broken Into by children In that neigh
borhood, the boards were torn from the
rear of the shop and a large number
of bottles and a large quantity of brass
was stolen. Three days ago Detective
Hellyer located one of the little fel
lows and on being threatened with ar
rest he broke down and gave the names
of all the boys and girls Implicated In
the robbery.
Yesterday subpenas were served on
the parents tf the children compelling
them to appear before Judge Frazer
Saturday morning. When the papers
were served on the parents of the chil
dren many of them broke down and
orled when notified that their children
were undor arrest- They i begged the
officers to give the children another
chance, saying that they would see
that the stolen articles were returned
or would make good the loss. As the
arrests had been made, the boys and

wuoiauon irom the charter you gave a ren
dition of only the first half of the clause,
ana for reasons of your own. quite charac-
tucuc, omiiiea any mention of the last half
of the tame, which was the exact portion
upon the Interpretation of
iams and the Water Board had founded their
luiiHK iai year, ana at the same time no

tion, and laid the blame entirely upon me.
when aa a matter of fact the police who
muuc me arresis were, not allowed to have
mc warrants necessary to make the arrests,
the City Attorney positively refusing to
Issue them. You knew this, for I went to
The Oregonian in person and asked for a
statement to that effect from you. The City
Attorney. Mr. McJfary, also stated to The
Oregonian that such were the facts.' "With
utter indifference you allowed tho stigma of
negieci oi auty, so lar as you were con
cerned, to rest unjustly upon my shoulders,
and do yet. In my opinion you are now do
ing the same thing in respect to this water
pipe and tho specifications for the same. You
know that the board must necessarily bo
largely governed In its selection by the ludc-
mcnt of Its engineer. He Is supposedly an
expert in that line, they are not; so far as I
am concerned, however, as a member of the
board. I will say that if you or anyone else
can show that sheet-steel is best and cheap
est for the city, then sheet-steel It will be,
though I will have to be governed much by
the Judgment ot the engineer In charge of
the work. In relation to the statement
made by you that the specifications for steel
sheet pipe wore marie onerous In certain re
quirements regarding "double tosts," "In
side caulking" and "burnishing," I havo to
say that the specifications were obtained In
the East and are what is known as "Stand
ard Specifications" and are such as are re
quired on all work now being done In East
ern cities, and In nowise are pecullnr or ex
ceptional, as you well know. Also you know
that the bid of the Martin Pipe Company,
while it purported to be $1800 lower than
any other for castlron pipe, was an Irregular
bid, for the reason that It omitted all of the
castings for one thing and put in an excep
tional clause for .anothor whloh compelled
the city to make a final acceptance of every
Inch of the pipe at Birmingham. Ala., which
Is a Jong way from here, and Is directly In
conflict with tho specifications of the city.
which required Its acceptance here, lou
have not at any time made mention of any
of these matters in your dUcusolon of thi
affair, and that you havo not shows plainly
that you are not fair, and do not Intend nor
care to uc iar.
To close I will say that the contract for
castlron pipe would not have been signed by

been exactly what It Is now. wnetner you

The Oregonian quotes uuiuciuuu
the charter to show that Mr. Ladd was
disqualified to act as a member of tho
Water Board, and tnat tnc waier-jnpc
contract was Invalid. It mlcht Havo
quoted many other sections of the charter
bearing more or less immeaiaiciy on uus
matter, but It did not deem it needful to
a clear and fair understanding by the
public; not was It needful. The Mayor
would, moreover, be in bofcter position
to Impeach The Orogonian -for unfairness
If he manifested a more -candid and im
partial purpose himself to give 'all the
facts, Ho quotes section 135 of the city
-charter, which 'he accuses The Oregonian
of garbling, and omits the followlngi

"If any officer or parson In this section
designated shall violate the provisions of
this section he shall forfeit his office, and
all such contracts, grants, privileges and
franchises In the hands of others than a
purchaser without notice for valuo shall

The Mayor will probably say that ho
quoted all of the section that was neces

The Oregonian challenges the accuracy
of the Mayor's statement that the speci

Music Is Not Only a Part of a Thorough Education, but an
Accomplishment and a Wellspring of Joy and Pleasure
The $25 Talk-G-phone that The Oregonian is. giving away plays music of the great masters;

heart with negro melodies and plantation scenes in the Southland in the long ago. It talks to you
with the voice of the tragic play-actors on. the mimic stage, and acquaints you with the eloquence
of men who are making history. Tells of Uncle Josh 's experience in the gay metropolis. It takes
you back to scenes in ye olden time, when the buskin' bees and quilting parties broke the monot
ony of life on the farm. It gives a higher class aud better entertainment than any other
musical instrument made. The Oregonian has mad it not only possible, but easy, for every
home to have this source of entertainment, this musical educator, this marvel of the ' electrical
age. It makes you an absolute present of the. machine, a reminder for all time to come of its
efforts to instruct and entertain you and make your home brighter, more cheerful and happier.

current events without reading a metropolitan daily paper a paper that prints all the telegraphic
news of the world, furnished only by the Associated Press. The Oregonian is such a paper.
