IT ADOPTS RESOLUTIONS
Declares It Will Work for Uie Ending
. of Perpetual Franchises, Es
pecially of the Portland
' '--Gas Company f
Termination of the present gas franchise
In tmsjclty Is the demand of the Multno
mah Democratic Club, -which last Bight
adopted -vigorous resolutions calling on 'its
members "to "work faithfully for ending
perpetual franchises, of -whatever nature,
particularly the Portland Gas Company s
franchise." The club also" -went on record
as favoring municipal ownership of public
utilities. . ' A
The Multnomah Democratic Club and Its
twin, the Young Men's Democratic Club,
are the two organizations in . Portland
which keep the sacred fire of the party
burning through all the storms and fuel
ramines that havo been threatening Its
life. The Young Men's Club wlU meet to
morrow night, probably to consider simi
lar resolutions. The Multnomah Clu,ls
headed hy A. E. Ream, president, and
John B. Ryan, secretary; and active spir
its like Joe Malley, Pat Powers, Alex
Sweek, John Lamont, C. B. "Williams, E.
Versteeg and George I Hutchln. The
other organization Is headed by John Mon
tag, president; J. G. Meybrunn and oth
ers of the type- of S. C. Armitage. George
H. Thomas, G. W. Allen, John Van Zante,
I T. Peery, Patrick Maher, the two Fo
ley, William and James.
Stars at Meeting.
Last night's galaxy contained such stars
as Patrick Powers, John B. Ryan. A. El
Ream, George I. Hutchln, John Lamont,
Alex Sweek. General Killfeather, Joq Mal
ley, Cadmus B. Williams, J. E. Malley,
Dr. J. W. Morrow, R. A. Wade, B. Ver
steeg, Charles Petrain and Charles E.
General Killfeather Jn a very florid
speech announced that he would be a can
didate for the Democratic nomination for
Representative to the Legislature, and
that he would fight for the people's rights.
If elected, as mightily as the strongest
armed patriot In the bunch. In the course
of his remarks the General sailed Into
"Johnny-Un Boorn" and "Pat Broon,"
saying that Mr. Bourne had things "all
fixed up In the Republican party and the
rest of the Republicans were all asleep."
Resolutions as Adopted.
In the adoption of the resolution as to
franchises, not one dissenting voice was
heard. The resolutions as nroduced bv
Pat Powers were:
Believing: in the supreme power of the
common people, the only soverelgnti recognized
as rulers in this republic of demorcr&cy; and
Whereas, Organized wealth has become in
solent and greatly favored; be It
Resolved, That wc, as citizens and members
of the .Multnomah Democratic Club, pledge
ourselves to work faithfully for the municipal
OT.DerbIp of -public utilities;
For tho election of United States Senators
by direct vote of the people:
For rigid enforcement of state health laws;
For ending perpetual franchises of what
cver nature, particularly the Portland Gas
For an eight-hour Jaw for women employes
and for an eight-hour law for men;
For ownership of the state printing plant
by tho state, and a flat salary for tho State
For maintenance of Chinese exclusion laws
.nd a law that will apply equally to the
For taxation of gross earnings of corpora
tions as proposed by the State Grange;
For municipal control of cities without
Interference of state authorities.
The Multnomah Club is arranging for
a series of public meetings for all Demo
crats. Heretofore its meetings have been
open to members only. The club plans
to make an active campaign for the June
election, In connection with the Young
Men's Club, and last night directed Pres
ident Ream to appoint a committee of
three members to confer with a like com
mittee of the other club, to that end.
The purpose of the joint committee as to
the primaries will be to cause enough
patriots to enter the Democratic pri
maries to insure the filling of the party
Ah effort Is to be made by the Word
element to secure the indorsement of the
two clubs, such a plan having been foiled
at the last meeting of the Young Men's
Club fey a narrow margin. Tho Multno
mah Club recently announced hostility
to Word by announcing C B. Williams
as its candidate for Sheriffi and the
Young Men's Club elected as its presi
dent Word's most Implacable enemy.
John Montag. But Williams has with
drawn from the race, and the Multnomah
Club la turning its eyes toward Joe Mal
ley for a standard-bearer.
The Young Men's Club In the last city
campaign refrained from Indorsing any
Democrat for Mayor, choosing to keep
the gate open to all comers. Leaders of
the club will endeavor to continue this
policy In the primary nomination for
Sheriff, but the Word people are strong
in the. organization, and will probably en
deavor to force through a Word Indorse
ment, as they almost succeeded in doing
at the last meeting.

able and Interesting speaker. It will be
the first time that such a course of ad

The following is the official proclama
tion of the patriotic instructor concerning
observance of National days:
"With rapid strides our country has
come to occupy a prominent place among
the nations of the earth. Our National
greatness Is not due alone to the extent
of our territory, the abundance of our ma
terial wealth, nor even our mental culture,
but rather to our high Ideals of manhood
left us by the deeds of the great men
God has given us. The best exponent of
the greatness of a nation Is Its great men,
and a full aprpeclation of Its great men
Is the surest promise of continued and in
creasing National worth and influence.
"Among tho great men whom God has
given us, Lincoln and Washington will
forever stand out at the head. The cus
tom ot observing the birthdays of these
two men is both educative and beautiful.
The dates of these days are Lincoln, Feb
ruary 12; Washington, February 22. There
fore, as "state instructor in patriotism.
Grand Army of the Republic, I must ear
nestly and cordially recommend to all G.
A. R. posts, public and private schools
and churches of all denominations to ob
serve these two days In the most fitting
way. Free use of the nag, tle singing of
patriotic songs, extracts from the sayings
of these two great men and addresses by
the most eminent men and women In the
community, will most certainly help es
sentially In keeping alive our love of coun
try and prepare our youth for an honor
able part in perpetuating the blessings of
liberty, morality and pence bequeathed to
us by the high-minded men who gave us
the Republic. In behalf of the Grand
Army of the Republic of the State of Ore
gon, I am most truly yours.

L. II. Maxwell Says Bristol Solicited j
'Fee, But "Will Not Give Idea
tity of "Friend" Making .
Who is the raysierious person or per
sons who are after the scalp of William
C. Bristol, the lawyer whom Francis J.
Heney recommended for United States j
Since Mr. Bristol became United States
District Attorney It has been apparent
that some one was after his official head
and long before the published announce
ment from Washington came, there was
talk of h"ls appointment being turned
down when It came time for the Senate
to act. Friends of Mr. Bristol scoffed at
the stories and declared that when his
name came before the Senate the ap
pointment would be confirmed.
But they reckoned without the myster
ious persons who, following the lead ot
others, have" delved Into the private his
tory of candidates for office from Ore
gon and have had a hand In blocking
their appointments. Since the news came
from Washington that charges of un
professional conduct had been lodged
against Mr. Bristol, he and his friends
have been vainly trying to discover who
It was that had made the charges. The
fact that Francis Heney had recom
mended Mr. Bristol was a signal for
those who were under Are because ot the
land fraud exposures to get busy and It
Is rumored that It was through some of
these men that the charges against Mr.
Bristol were mado In Washington.
Among the number of those who are ac
cused of being after Mr. Bristol's scalp
is W. F. Matthews, former United States
Marshal. Mr. Matthews Is out ot the
city and cannot make a denial.
When the dispatches from Washington
announced that the appointment of Mr.
Bristol would be withdrawn because of
charges of unprofessional conduct, the
dentlty of those behind the charges was
not known. Mr. Bristol became Indig
nant at the publication of the dispatch In
The Oregonian and has stoutly refused to
make a statement concerning the charges.
Now it devolves that L. H. Maxwell, a
deputy county assessor and secretary of
the Coos Bay Land & Investment Com
pany, Is ready to stand by the charge
that Bristol wrote the letter referred to
In The Oregonlan's dispatches to the
Coos Bay Land & Investment Company.
This letter, Mr. Maxwell says, was for
the purpose of soliciting money for aid
ing in selling lands to Page & Hoberg,
for whom Bristol was reputed to be act
ing as attorney In the deal.
Tho Coos Bay Land & Investment
Company was organized by Portland men
for the purpose of buying and selling
Coos Bay lands at the time ot the first
railroad excitement four years ago. . T.
C Stevens, president of the company,
declines to dlscurs the Bristol charges.
The firm which Mr. Bristol Is alleged
to have represented In the deal with the
Coos Bay Company is made up of James
E. Page and Frank Hoberg. who have
offices In the Chamber of Commerce
building. Mr. Hobcrc declares that he
never employed Mr. Bristol and never
paid him a dollar In attorney fees, while
on the other hand Mr. Maxwell declares
that Mr. Bristol wrote the letter asking
the Coos Bay Company for a lump sum
to procure nis influence in consummating
the deal. Mr. Maxwell said yesterday:
lct(er Is Authentic
"I will state positively that Mr. Bristol
wrote a letter to the Coos Bay Land &
Investment Company in June, 150C The
Oregonian printed this extract from that
letter. 'In view of the fact that what I
might say or do may have considerable
Influence on the result of the transaction,
I suggest that you call your people to
gether and let me know: what lump sum
you are willing to pay me In case the.
deal goes through.
"While I have not the letter before me
at the present time, I can vouch for the
fact that it Is, as near as I can remem
ber. Identically the same as the text of
Mr. Bristol's letter. At that time we
were negotiating for the sale of certain
property for 40,CCO. While we considered
his demands somewhat exorbitant, not to
say unprofessional, nevertheless we gave
them some consideration, for we desired
to dispose of tho property. Previous to
this time I, personally, had not known
Mr. Bristol and I believe none of the Arm
knew him. Neither did we know Page
and Hoberg. except as being In business.
They were th parties to whom we were
trying to sell the property."
When asked if he had a copy of the
letter written by Bristol. Mr. Maxwell
renlled. "I did make a coDr of the letter.
but ha-p. mislaid It, for after searching
zor Jl x nave oeea unouic u locate iu
Maxwell's Mysterious Friend.
"How did the original letter get Into
the hands of Senator Fulton, and later
to the President?" Maxwell was asked.
"Some time ago a very dear friend of
mine requested me to let him have the
letter, and I compiled with his request."
When asked as to the Identity of the
friend' in question. Mr. Maxwell refused
to divulge his name, and added that he
had no Intimation as to the use the letter
was to be put.
-John Andrew, treasurer of the Coos Bay
Land & Investment Company, stated In
an Interview yesterday that his company
had received, a letter from W. C Bristol,
in which he agreed to sell a piece of land
to his clients, and stipulated that the
company should pay hlnx J300 for so do
ing. The Coos Bay Land St Investment
Company was anxious to dispose ot the
property named, and held a meeting to
decide on what course they should take
relative to the request of Bristol. Al
though believing the fee of J30 for en
gineering the sale ot the property as
rather high, they Informed Bristol that
they would agree and considered that
sum as a fee. For some reason the sale
was not consummated,' but the complete
record of the transaction is believed to
be on the books of tho company. During
the negotiations Bristol was reputed to
be the attorney for Page & Hoberg.
