TIES UP FIGHT
Orders That Four Captains of
Police Be Maintained,
AUTHORITY IN THE CHARTER
tXhitlon Passed Providing Offi
cers for Which Council Appropri
ates no Salary Courts Will
Eventually Decide Blatter.
Open defianca to the Council in the
matter of appropriations for the Police
Department was declared by the Execu
tive Board at its meeting yesterday after
noon. By resolution it was asserted that
power for determining the number of
officers necessary in the department lies
in the board and not in the Council, and
the committee on police was instructed
to maintain the department just as It
is at present. The resolution Is in sup
port of the position taken by Mayor Lane
in regard to the appropriation, and brings
' t Issue a question of authority between
the board and Council which W'H prob
ably b settled only in the courts.
By its adoption of the resolution the
Vnoard will ' attempt to force the Council
to appropriate money for a fourth captain
of police. For the purpose of ousting
Captain Bruin, whom they declare to
have been Irregularly appointed, the
Councilmen made provision for only three
captains in the annual appropriation.
This reduction in the ranks of the offi
cers was one reason given by Mayor Lane
in vetoing the ordinance, but the Council
maintained its position, passing the
measure In spite of his disapproval.
Members of the board now declare that
the position taken by the Council is not
tenable. The board, they assert, is vested
by the council with authority to organize
and supervise the department and has
the power to say how large a force Is
necessary. In emphatic terms they say
that four captains are necessary and
they propose to continue employing them
In spite of the fact that no appropria
tion has been made for the salary of one
of that number. If the Coimeil does
not give in without a fight, which is
extremely unlikely, it is evident that the
matter of collecting the fourth captain's
salary will be submitted to the courts.
Conferences Bear Fruit.
Bier since the Council took a shot at
llayor Lane by refusing to appropriate
money for the salaries of chief and of a
fourth captain, members of the police
committee of the board have been much
In consultation with the Mayor. It is
evident that the line of battle was laid
out in these conferences and when the
board met jvpterday the police committee
all ready-' with a resolution. It was
Introduced by Thomas G. Greene and
adopted by unanimous vote. It follows:
Whereas. Th first Executive Board of the
City of Portland, appointed by Hon. GeorRe
H. Williams, then Mayor, after taking effect
of the present charter, organized the police
department of the city under section 179 of
said charier, and provided for four captains
of volice In said department; and
Whereas, The present Kxecutlve Foard
adopted and has continued the form of organ
ization and roster of superior officers for
merly in force; and
Whereas, The number of members of the
police department at present is greater and
tl city larger and the work devolving upon
ttlw department more onerous than when the
former Executive Board decided how properly
to officer the force; and
Whereas, Four captains are in fact actual
ly necessary and indispensable properly and ef
fectually to officer and command the present
force, one captain being necessary for each
of the three Tellefs and one captain for the
detectives and plain clothes men, and one
captain for the East 8Ule station, authorized
and for the establishment of which an appro
priation has been made; be it therefore
Resolved. That the committee on police be
and It la hereby directed to maintain the
present organization of the police department.
Including four captains of police and a cap
tain of police for the East Bide station when
the same Is established;
Resolved, That the Executive Board hereby
finds and declares that four captains of police,
In addition to a chief of police, are neces
sary for the police department of this city.
Charter Relied On.
"The charter places in the hands of the
executive board the organization of the
police department," said Mr. Greene in
submitting the resolution. "We are em
powered to provide all necessary captains
and other officers, and the resolution Is
the recorded declaration of the board that
four captains are necessary. By placing
kith us the control of the department, it
's a reasonable inference that we shall
ay, how many captains are necessary. I
would like to ask the City Attorney If
that is not a fact?"
"That is the way I have always inter
preted the charter," was the reply of Mr.
Section 179. to which the resolution re
ferB, provides that "the police department
of the City of Portland shall be appoint
ed and orgaWzed, subject to the civil
service rules of the charter, except as
hereinafter provided, by the first execu
tive board appointed after this charter
takes effect. To that end the executive
board may make all necessary or con
venient rules and regulations for the or
ganization and conduct of the police
The following section, to which refer
ence was made by Mr. Greene, says that
'The police department shall consist of a
chief and all necessary captains of po
lice. . . ." It Is upon these two sec
tions taken together that the board bases
Its defiance of the powers of the Coun
cil to limit by its appropriations the
number of officers.
As an effect of the resolution the board
will continue to employ four captains of
police. It will also probably sign the
.tyroll for four captains in spite of the
fact that there Is appropriation for only
three. The only manner in which the ad
ditional officer can collect his pay Is
through the courts and it is there that
the point of authority, which is far
reaching In its effect, will be settled.
It Is extremely unlikely that any at
tempt will be made to defy the action
of the Council In refusing to appropriate
the regular salary- of Chief for an acting
chief. As the Council has passed an
ordinance providing money wtien a regu
lar chief shall be appointed, there would
be little ground upon which to base a
claim of this character. In this matter it
appears that the Council, by its condi
tioned appropriation has effectually stolen
the ammunition of the executive board.
TO BUY NEW EQUIPMENT
City Will Lose no Time Increasing
Efficiency of Fire Department.
a- a meetlnar of the Executive Board
yesterday afternoon it was voted to
adver'.ise lmmediitely for tho equip
ment needed in the Fire Department
p.nd authorized by the recent appropria
tion for 1907. The purchases will in
clude two hose wagons, two second
slzo engines, one combination chemical
and hose wagon. 15 horses, and mis-
cellaneous equipment for the fire alarm
Chief Campbell and Fire Marshall
Roberts reported that the new Parsons
Hall at Twenty-third and Washington
streets does not comply with the ordi
nances in the matter of exits. They
recommended that a stairway be built
connecting' the hall on the second floor
with the Washington-street side, and
that a fire escape be placed on the
Twenty-third-street side. The report
was referred to the fire committee.
A contract to install oil burners on
the ftreboat George H. Williams was
awarded at $2197 to the Zlmmerman-Wells-Brown
Company. It had been
feared that the change of fuei from
coal would have to be given up, but
it was decided that in spite of the in
creased price, oil would prove more
economical, and bids were advertised
Bids on street Improvements were
received as follows: Hood street. Pen
insular Feed & Fuel Company, $3988;
Joplln & Meeka, $3987; Halsey street,
R. J. DeBuhr, $2756; O'Xeill & Co..
$3253; Hoyt street, O'Neill & Co. $2098.
WILL NOT SIGN VOUCHERS
Member of Executive Board Objects
to Form Used by Auditor.
On the grounds that requisitions for
supplies in the various departments of
the city government do not comply with
the municipal requirements, Thomas G.
Greene, chairman of the police commit
tee of the Executive Board, declared at
the meeting yesterday afternoon that he
would sign no more of them In their
present form. This is regarded as an
other step In the dissension between the
Mayor and Auditor, growing out of the
recent experting entaglement and is prob
ably aimed to force Auditor Devlin to
change the form of requisitions.
The assertion of Mr. Greene came as a
surprise, and although it resulted an only
a brief discussion, It Is not improbable
that other members of the board will
take the same position. If they do the
Auditor will be compelled to change from
the present form of requisitions or the
purchase of supplies in all the city de
partments will be held up. It Is proba
ble that the action of Mr. Greqne alone
will prevent purchases in tne police de
partment and bring the matter to a cli
While admitting that the Auditor is
given the power to determine the form
in which requisitions shall be issued, Mr.
Greene contends that this power is lim
ited by certain regulations. The requisi
tions, he says, should contain more spe
cllic information as to the purpose for
which materials purchased are used, and
the manner of its approval.
'These vouchers do not even stipulate
the office held by the person approving
them," asserted Mr. Greene. "I consider
them entirely inadequate and for my part
I shall not sign another one. The other
members of the board can do Just as
they please about It."
'For requisitions in the street-cleaning
department, I have had a stencil prepared
with the word 'chairman,' which I use,"
said C. A. Cogswell, head of that com
mittee. 'Then you are performing a duty which
should be done by the Auditor," replied
The form of requisitions has been a
matter of contention in the city govern
ment for some time. Mayor Lane has
.been demanding the adoption of a form
that gives detailed Information concern
ing the transaction represented. He as
serts that under the present system there
is no way to place a reliable check on the
city's accounts. Auditor Devlin, on the
other hand, maintains that the present
form is sufficiently- explicit and stands
upon the authority given him under the
charter to decide what form shall be
"Drawing Matches' Is
latest Cigar Game
Brand new Method of Gambling; for
Smokes, Inuusrurated in Portland
WITH slot machnes, dice boxes and
other gambling devices barred
from cigar counters by the police, and
with the American Handicap, or the
perforated board, under the ban of the
authorities, a new and interesting way
of wooing the goddess of 'chance has
been put Into practice that further
proves necessity the" mother of Inven
tion. Should a smoke-hungry man ap
proach a cigar clerk and express the
desire to gamble with him for a cigar,
the nicotine dispenser will accommo
date him as of yore but in an entirely
new way. He will pull out a handful
of matches and place them on the
counter, telling the prospective cus
tomer with the sporting instincts to
draw one. The clerk then in turn
takes one from the pile, and Jhe man
In front of the counter continues to.
draw in his turn until the pile of
matches disappears. The one who
takes the last match is "stuck."
This novel game is said to afford an
equal chance for the customer to
"break even" with1 the cigar store, and
while it Is not so attractive as the
old method of spinning the reels of
the slot machines, it answers the same
purpose. Whether the police will put
a stop to this custom as well as the
others that went before is yet to be
seen. In case this is also put under
the ban, the ingenious cigar clerks are
expected to offer some other scheme for
combining chance and business.
INSPECTS FIELD ARTILLERY
Colonel . Jackson Pleased Witli Re
' view of Local Battery.
The - annual inspection of the First
Battery Field Artillery, Oregon Nation
al Guard, was held In the Armory last
night. Colonel James Jackson, U. S.
A., made the review and though he did
not express an opinion regarding the
battery, it was clear that he was
pleased. The .battery is commanded by
Capt. H. TJ. Welch and is composed of
79 men, including officers. It pos
sesses four field guns of the latest
model and has 72 draft horses, and 20
mounts. It also has equipment for 120
men, including revolvers. The battery
has progressed greatly during the past
year, and though the number of men
has not Increased, the company as a
whole is in better condition.
In regard to the inspection of the
other companies Colonel Jackson said,
"I find that the military training- and
the dislcpline of the regiment is eood,
and it comes up to my expectations. I
find, however, that the attendance is
poor, but that may be traced to the
recent storm trouble and poor street

ADMITS HIS ERROR
Attorney John F. Logan Apolo
gizes to Judge Frazer.
ALL FINES ARE REMITTED
Lawyer Confesses That His Words
Were IIl-Advised and Hasty.
Court Gladly Grant For
giveness to Old Friend.
Mutual apologies and a renewal of
friendly "relations between Circuit Judge
Frazer and Attorney John F. Logan yes
terday came as an end to the heated
word duel which the two engaged in on
Thursday afternoon, when Mr. Logan
withdrew from a damage case after
having been fined three times for con
tempt of court.
The peace dove came into court at the
opening of the morning session yesterday.
Although Attorney Logan declared on
Thursday that he would never again ap
pear In any case before Judge Frazer, he
explained yesterday that his words were
Ill-advised and hasty. He appeared in
the case upon the opening of court and
at once arose to apologize for Thursday's
"If the court pleases," he said, "I
wish to say that on yesterday afternoon
and morning I acted somewhat hastily
and do not think I did myself justice, or
right to the court. I think too much of
Judge Frazer, having known him all the
years I have, and being with him here
in the Courthouse for seven or eight
years while he has been on the bench,
to allow anything like the episode of yes
terday to pass more than one day's re
flection. I want at this time to apologize
to your honor, and to you, gentlemen of
the Jury, and to counsel on the other side
for my part in the hasty exhibition of
"My zeal for my client sometimes leads
me to cross those whom I love and honor
more than any client that I ever had:
and I take this earliest opportunity to
state to your honor, that I feel that it
is due you to make this apology as open
and public as the heat and passion was
"I can say for my part," replied Judge
Frazer, "that nothing that has occurred
in court since I have been on the bench
has hurt me more than what occurred
yesterday, because of the fact that I
knew Mr. Logan did not Intend any dis
courtesy to the court or to the Jury, in
view of the long friendship that has
existed between us, as Mr. Logan has
said. I know there, is not at the bar a
more honorable or generous hearted man
and I feel myself somewhat to blame
for the difficulty that arose.
"I think we misunderstood each other
all through the trial. I thought there was
too much criticism of the rulings of the
court after they were made and too much
time taken up in talk. But I allowed it
to run on and said nothing until I became
irritated, and when I became irritated I
have an unfortunate trait of character
or temper and sometimes act too hastily
and without sufficient consideration. I
am very glad, however, that this matter
may be adjusted in tlis way. It caused
me a great deal of unhappiness in more
ways than one. It Is the only time since
I have been on the bench where I have
thought It necessary to fine an attorney,
and then to fine a man with whom I
have been intimately associated for the
last nine years, and one whom I consider
among my very best friends, was a very
hard thing to do.
"As I have already said there Is not
a more honorable, upright or generous
man practicing at the bar and one who
more fully intends to do what is right,
lind I am willing to take to myself a
large share of the blame for the mis
understanding. "I think, under the circumstances, Mr.
Clerk, you may enter an order remitting
the fines asainst Mr. Logan, and I dp
this with great pleasure, for the Imposi
tion of the fines caused me severe pain.
We will now proceed with the trial."
The case on trial, that of Katherine
Huntsman against R. I. Eckerson, for
$20,000 damages for arrest on groundless
charges, will go to the Jury today. The
final arguments were completed yester
day afternoon, but the case was kept
from the Jury until today on account of
illness in the family of Juror Haack.
which made It necessary for him to spend
the night at home.
UXHAPFY COUPLES SIXDERED
Three Divorces Granted; One Case
Taken Under Advisement.
On. the night of October 18, two
years ago. M. E. Gallagher calmly in
formed his wife. Hattie Galla
gher, that he was going out
for the evening. When asked Just
where he was going he said he intend
ed visiting his lodge. Gallagher is still
at the "lodge." At least the wife has
not seen him since. She hasheard
that he spent the evening aboard a
Southern Pacific train, and did not stop
going until he reached San Francisco,
where he was last heard of. Mrs. Gal
lagher was awarded a divorce, in the
Circuit Court yesterday, on the grounds
of desertion. They were married in
Portland in 1904.
Grace Sherrett was given a divorce
from D. M. Sherrett on the grounds of
desertion. They were married in Texas
in 1901, and the desertion occurred in
Arizona the following year.
Another Texas wedding was dissolved
when Alice J. Houser was given a di
vorce frBm James S. Houser on the
grounds of jealousy, bad temper and
cruelty. They were married 22 years
ago at Fort Worth.
Mary Beatty failed to make out her
case of cruelty against H. U. Beatty.
Since they were married at Baker City
several years ago, Mrs. Beatty claimed
her husband had often sworn at her,
but her testimony showed that the
epithet of "fool" was about as far as
his vituperation went. She. testified
that he was a drunkard, but she knew
this before she married him. Judge
Sears took this case under advise
ment. GIVEX TILL- MONDAY TO PLEAD
W. H. Taft Arraigned In the State
W. H. Taft. a former real estate broker,
was taken before Circuit Judge Frazer
yesterday forenoon for arraignment. The
charge of uttering: a forged promissory
note was read against him. hut through
his attorney he asked for additional time
in which to plead, and was given until
More troubles piled up on his shoulders
yesterday forenoon when Lawyer J, F.
Shillock filed action in Justice Reed's
court for the recovery of furniture which
Taft bought and did not- pay for. Taft
is alleged to have entered the Taylor
furniture store, purchased the furniture,
and then remarked casually that he had
forgotten his checkbook. He had such
an authoritative air and such a finely
simulated air of wealth, that the com-
pany humbly sent the goods. Taffa
checkbook is still "forgotten" so far as
the-furniture company is concerned.
Asks $20,000 Damages for Injuries.
Nora Armstrong says she went to step
off a streetcar on East TCJnth street last
June. She thought the car had stopped,
but it had not, and in stepping to the
ground she lost her, balance and was
thrown -violently to the ground.
Now she wants $20,000 damages from
the Portland Railway Company. Her suit
for that amount was placed on trial be
fore Circuit Judge Cleland yesterday
forenoon, the day being occupied with the
securing of a Jury. Miss Armstrong sus
tained several broken bones as a result
of the accident.

It is a strain on nerves and patience
for a teacher, not only to curb the an

Including the famous three K's.
