HALF LID RUMOR
Says There Is No -Truth in
Story That Gladdens
Hearts of Saloonmen.
POLICY IS NOT CHANGED
V 1 r - ... . r r
Drinking Places Would Be
Allowed to Open at 1
P. M. Sundays.
Joy unrestrained reigned among the
disciples of Bacchus in Multnomah Coun
ty yesterday when a rumor gained circu
lation that District Attorney John Man
ning: had relented and would consent to
a half-lid regulation of the saloons on
Sunday. But the jubilation following thi
report was short-lived, investigation
proving that the story was without foun
dation. District Attorney Manning
vigorously declared that no departure
from the Sunday-closing policy announced
some six weeks ago was contemplated by
the District Attorney' office.
"Nobody has asked me to take the lid
off and in fact there is not the slightest
demand that it should be raised even
partly," said District Attorney Man
ning yesterday. . "It would not make any
difference if I should be asked to change
my policy regarding Sunday closing. The
lid is on to stay as long as I am In office,
if I should serve for 40 years."
The substance of the report was that
the saloons would be permitted to resume
business at 1 o'clock Sunday afternoon,
after being required to remain closed for
the preceding 12 hours. In connection
with the same report it was said that an
ordinance would soon be introduced in
the City Council legalizing the Sunday
saloon. This is denied by the members
of the liquor license committee of the
Council, who say the only ordinance
before that committee relating to the
saloon question is a measure by Vaughn
conferring on the Council the right to en
force the closing of saloons on Sunday.
Opposes Sunday Closing.
This committee in the Council, when
the Vaughn ordinance was before it for
consideration, went on record as posi
tively opposing Sunday closing. Of the
seven members of the committee, Vaughn
was the only member who Indorsed the
ordinance, which was placed on the table.
It will probably never be taken there
from. Judging from the temper of the
members of the license committee.
Several of the members of this commit
tee are of the opinion that under the city
charter the Council has the right to reg
ulate the saloon question independently
of the state statutes. The more conserv
ative members, however, maintain that
thi contention is not warranted for the
reason that the state law takes prece
dence over municipal legislation, partic
ularly when that legislation relates to
subjects coming under the criminal laws
this light, these same Councilmen hold
that, no matter what the wishes of the
municipal lawmakers may be, the control
of saloons as to Sunday closing will be in
charge of the state and district authori
ties until the present statute is repealed
or the District Attorney relaxes in his
present attitude and public sentiment will
consent to tolerate liquor traffic on the
If the question of Sunday closing in
Portland rested with the City Council,
and especially with the liquor license
committee, where all legislation affecting
the conduct of these resorts usually orig
inates, the saloon business would be con
ducted seven days of the week.
Would Lift the Lid.
"When the Vaughn Sunday-closing or
dinance was before the liquor license com
mittee a majority of the members of that
committee were correctly reported as op
posing any Sunday-closing policy either
by the state or the municipal authori
ties," said Dr. W. I. Cottel, chairman of
that committee, yesterday. "Personally,
1 do not believe the time has arrived for
this sort of reform. Portland is a West
ern city, and it is difficult for us to be
come accustomed to these restrictions. I
believe that saloons should be regulated
by law and properly conducted, but I do
not consider they should be required to
ruspend business one day each week.
"Not a Sunday has passed since Port
land's saloons have been closed that I
have not refused a dozen applications for
liquor. Reputable people have called' at
my store and requested from 25 cents to
a dollar's worth of whisky, wine or gin,
and because I would not supply them I
am satisfied they were offended. But
under the law it is a crime for druggists
to sell any liquor unless on prescription of
a registered physician. The principal busi
ness of many drugstores is selling liquor
and the Sunday closing of saloons has
been a boon to their business. Such places
should be closely watched and all viola
tions of the law should be prosecuted. If
these places are to be allowed to do this
business on such a wholesale scale they
thould at least be required to pay a
license if they are not to be governed by
the same restrictions that are imposed on
WOODMEN WILL MEET HERE
Portland Secures Next Head Camp
Convention of Order.
The next Head Camp convention of
the Paclfc jurisdiction of the Woodmen
of the World will be held In Portland.
At present the local officers of the
lodge are unable to tell whether the
convention will be held two or three
years hence. In the past the conven
tions have been held every two years,
but the great expense entailed in
bringing delegates from the different
states has put up to the head officers
of the organization the que;lon of
discontinuing: the biennial sessions and
holding them once every three years.
At present the question has not been
It Is a certainty, however, that the
next convention will be held In this
city. The last convention has Just
closed at Seattle, and there it was
voted to hold the next meeting in
Portland. The . delegates will come
from nine of the Pacific Coast states
Oregon,- Washington. Idaho, California,
Nevada, Montana, Arizona and Colo

100 delegates will be present.

ADMITTED TO FEDERAL BAR
Seld Gein, Portland Born Chinaman,
Gains Novel Distinction.
What is believed to be the first Instance
of the admission of a Chinaman to
practice in a Federal Court, occurred yes
terday when Seld Back, Jr., was ac
corded that privilege by Judge Charles E.
Wolverton of the United States District
and Circuit Courts. His real name is
Seid Gein. but he is known in Portland
by the name of Seid Back, which is that
of his father, one of the wealthiest of
the local Chinese merchants.
The motion to admit Seld to practice
was made by Charles J. Schnabel, and
occasioned general surprise in tho court
room for it was not known that Seid Is
an American citizen. He is, however, a
native of Portland, and Is one of the
best-known Orientals in the city. As an
interpreter he has long been a familiar
figure at the Circuit Court.
Seid Is about 26 years old and is well
educated. He recently completed a course
In the Oregon Law School and was ad
mitted to the bar. He Is a leader among
the young Chinese and was last week
elected president of- a newly-organized
Chinese debating society.

"Under the Jaw of this state, the
sister, Mrs. Hansen, was entitled to
be appointed administratrix," said
Judge Webster in announcing: his de
cision, "and the only question involved
was as to her residence. This ques
tion was raised by those opposing Mrs.
Hansen's apolntment, but their objec
tion was displaced by the announce
ment of the sister that she intends to
make Tier home in this state, thereby
establishing her residence here."
The estate is of the estimated value
of $40,000, of which all but $8000 .is
real estate. According to the petition

DAT IX JAIL FOR CONTEMPT
Robert Cook Punished for Shaking
Fist in Face of Jndce.
Robert Cook spent yesterday in me
County Jail for contempt of court.
Early yesterday morning: Cook called
at the- Courthouse and, confronting;
Judge Frazer. of the Juvenile Court,
demanded that his children be restored
to him from the custody of the court
officers. His request being; denied.
Cook shook his fist in the face of Judge
Frazer, and a possible assault was pre
vented by the arrival of Juvenile Of
ficer White, who accompanied the dis
turber to Jail. Cook had been sum
moned before the court to explain his
abusive treatment of his three young;
children last Saturday, while he was
under the Influence of intoxicants. The
children have for several weeks been
under the Jurisdiction of the Juvenile
Court, and it was because the cour
refused to surrender their custody to
the father that Cook in his anger in
sulted Judge Frazer.

commlsion that was appointed to In
quire into the lad's sanity has found

-This commission consisted of Dr. W.
T. Williamson, Dr. Andrew C. Smith
and Dr. House. After having made a

CHINESE ORDERED TO MOVE OUT OF
CONDEMNED BUILDING, AND REFUSE
TWO of the largest mercantile
houses In the Chinese district
the Chung Sung Tung Hong Kee
Company, 115 Second, and the Hung Sun
Company, 147 Second, were peremptor
ily ordered out of their quarters lata
yesterday afternoon by the police, act
ing on instructions from Chief Deputy
City Attorney Fitzgerald. The mer
chants were given until noon today to
get out. and were Informed by Captain
Slover that unless they obeyed the or
der a squad of policemen will throw
them out and pile their goods on the
This -action was taken because of
the very shaky condition of" the build
ing, a three-story brick, which houses
the Chinese firms. To the north of it,
at Second and Alder streets, L. Ger
llnger's operations have been stopped
for ten days. His men have been tear
ing down an old brick building former
ly occupied by Chinese, to make way
for a modern office structure.
The Chinese ordered out yesterday
received notification from the office of
the City Attorney ten days ago to va
cate, but paid no attention to It. Late
yesterday afternoon Deputy City At
torney Fitzgerald appeared at police
headquarters and laid the case before
Chief Grltzmacher, who dispatched
Captain Slover to the scene to order the
Chinese out. Later, however. Chief
Grltzmacher stated that he will not
take action to oust the Chinese, as he
says that comes properly under the
duties of- the Chief of the Fire Depart
ment. That the Chinese must vacate,
is regarded as certain, and it is thought
that the building will be ordered torn
down, as It is endangering the public.
The building from which the Chinese
were ordered is one of the oldest In
Chinatown, and has been occupied for
many years by the firms who have been
ordered out. The members of the com
panies were not at all pleased with the
action of the police, and It Is believed
will resist, as it Is supposed they are
acting with legal advice.
The old building that is being torn
down at the southeast corner of Second
and Alder, to make room for Mr. Ger
linger's new structure, has left no sup
port for the one from which the police
ordered the Chinese yesterday, and the
frail wall between the two, now left
without support, seems ready to give
way at any moment.
Great excitement prevailed through
out Chinatown when the police gave
the order to vacate yesterday. It is a
serious matter to the Asiatics, as there
seems no place they can move Into,
and they do not know what to do. For
Circuit Court yesterday by the North
west Warehouse Company. The plain
tiff company alleges that because of
the delay and negligence of the -transportation
company in f urnishlngears

1904, and February, 1905, it sustaVed
damages to the amount of $8369.47.
Judgment is demanded for thia.amount,
together with nearly three years' -.interest.
New Trial Denied.
Before retiring to. his home yester
day suffering from a severe attack of
lumbago, Circuit Judge Frazer sub
mitted a decision denying the motion
to set aside the Judgment, and for a
new trial in the case of Lew Wy Hln
against the Oregon Railroad & Navi
gation Company. In the trial of the
case the Chinaman was awarded a
verdict of $5000 for injuries sustained

CHARGES OF GRAFT1
Heads of the Street Cleaning
Department on Carpet.
Superintendent Donaldson Alleged
to Have Sold Sweepings to Fill
In Private Property Fore
man Jenkin's Offense.
Alex. M. Donaldson and E. F.
Jenkins, superintendent and foreman
respectively of the city street-cleaning
department, were before the street
committee of the Executive Board yes
terday afternoon on ciiarges that
amount to petty grafting. Jenkins is
accused of having spent a part of the
city's time breaking a horse which he
Is said to have kept at the city's stable.
The charge against Donaldson is more
serious, being that he sold - street
sweepings to the owners of private
property to be used in making fills.
At the request of the complainants,
who are employed in the street-cleaning
department, the hearing of the
charges was set for Thursday, August S.
"I do not know who my accusers are
and will not know until the charges
that have been preferred are reduced
to writing and filed with the commit
tee," said Superintendent Donaldson
yesterday. "I am thoroughly satisfied,
however, that they are employed In the
street-cleaning department. Some of
these men have for some time had it in
for the foreman and they are evident
ly taking this method of getting even.
As to my receiving money for the
refuse that is gathered In the streets,
the charge is absurd. Why should any
man think of paying or offering to
pay for these sweepings when the city
has for several months been begging
for places to dump the very trash I am
charged with selling for a considera
tion?" Charges of a similar character have
been filed by Charles Passtg, a dis
charged employe at the City Park,
against Park Superintendent Montelth.
Tho Park Superintendent is charged
with padding the payroll of the Park
Department and of keeping a horse at
the City Park stables at the expense
of the city. These charges will be
considered by the Park Board at its
Park Superintendent Montelth de
nies the accusations of Passig and says
they have been preferred purely in a
spirit of revenge. Passig wag- recently
dismissed from the city's service on
complaint of Montelth, who reported
having seen Passig in a saloon at a
time when he was supposed to be at
work in the park.
SERMON BY REV. E. A. ROSS
Los Angeles Revivalist Talks at the
Rev. B. A. Ross, an evangelist of Los
Angeles, held a revival service at the
Peniel Mission last night. Much of his
discourse was devoted to a denunciation
of what he termed "devllH?ossessed" re
ligions. The sect known as "Tongues of
Fire" was among those singled out for
violent condemnation. The speaker used
all his powers of passionate oratory In
expressing his. sentiments in regard to
this religious body. He declared it was
not more tongues that they need, but
the grace of God to control what tongues
they have. People nowadays take up
everything but Bible salvation, was the

LAWMAKERS ENJOY REST
COUJfCII; TTIIili SOT MEET AGAIN
UNTIL AUGUST 14.
Wide Interval Between Sessions Re
sults in Change of Meeting Day.
Committees Are Busy.
Portland's lawmakers are enjoying
a respite from their labors and, with
the exception of occasional committee
meetings, the Council will have noth
ing to do until the regular meeting
on the second Wednesday In August.
At Its last meeting the rules were
amended to provide for Council meet
ings on the second and fourth Wednes
days of each month instead of the flrrt
and third Wednesdays. As a result of
this act there follows an Interval of
nearly three weeks until the Cour.cll
will be convened again.
Probably the most important matter
pending before the Council, aside from
the matter of the Madison-street bridge
bonds, which will be offered for sale
soon. Is Belding's. anti-trust ordinance.
As to the bridge bonds, the election by
which this indebtedness was authorized
is held by City Attorney Kavanaugh
to have been legal, and for this reason
the city's legal advisor contends that
the issue of these bonds must neces
sarily be valid. At any rate City
Auditor Barbur is preparing to ad
vertise for bids for the bonds, whose
legality will be tested by a friendly
suit In the courts. The Intention is to
bring this litigation this week so that
an early decision may be reached.
Belding's anti-trust ordinance Is in
tended to regulate all business com
binations in this city. It is modeled
after the Sherman anti-trust law, and
Is made applicable to a munclpallty.
The author Introduced the measure
only after consulting with City Attor
ney Kavanaugh, who thinks the pro
visions of the city charter give to the
Council the right to exercise the same
police power in the government of the
city that is conferred to the state In
regulating state affairs.
At the last meeting of the Council
some opposition developed to the Beld
lng ordinance, but an attempt to side
track the measure by referring it to
the committee on accounts and current
expenses was defeated. The ordinance
was finally sent to the Judiciary com
mittee, which will Inquire into the
legality of the measure at its next
meeting. In view of the general de
mand for some regulation of trade com
binations in this city, there Is but little
question that the ordinance will be
passed If the judiciary committee can
be satisfied that In enacting legislation
the Council will be acting within Its
authority. ' .
Committees representing both the
Executive Board and" the City Council
will have plenty to do in the interim.
Charges of irregularity and involving
strong intimation of graft have been
preferred against Park Superintend
ent Montelth and Superintendent Alex
Donaldson and Foreman E. F. Jenkins,
of the street-cleaning department. The
officers in the street department will
be given a hearing before the street
committee of the Executive Board,
Thursday. August 8.
In addition to these cases and .the
regular routine of Council work, an
other Important hearing, that of fn
competency and Insubordination against
ex-City Detectives Day, Snow, Carpen
ter and Reslng, is scheduled for the
early part of August.
SAYS INJUSTICE WAS DONE
Emil Held Tells Why He Was Un
able to Carry Out Plans.
Emil Held, an advertising man of this
city, takes exception to a dispatch from
Forest Grove, published in an evening
newspaper, in which he is denounced as
an advertising faker and a bunco artist.
Mr Held considers that a gross injustice
has been done him and in explanation of
his dealings with the Forest Grove peo
ple, makes the following statement:
"Last November I organized Held's
Tourist Bureau and began publishing
Held's Tourist Bulletin, a weekly pub
lication. It was Issaued regularly until
last April, when It suspended, owing to
a lack of support. In the meantime I
visited Forest Grove and solicited sub
scriptions for the Bulletin at tl a year,
agreeing to publish pictures of the
scenery of that city, together with the
photograph of prominent people. But the
Bulletin suspended publication before
these Illustrations could be used. As
evidence of my good faith in this connec
tion, I can show bills contracted In local
Behind the Cook
photograph galleries for taking the pic
tures of Forest Grove people.
"Shortly after my visit to Forest Grove
I was taken 111 and only last week re
covered sufficiently to attend to my busi
ness. I then made arrangements with
the Spectator Publishing Company to for
ward the Spectator to all subscribers at
Forest Grove and elsewhere whose money
I had received for subscriptions. But
for my sickness this matter would have
received earlier attention. Persons who
subscribed to the Bulletin will this week
begin receiving the Spectator."
