Will Open Mant Streets. Through
the efforts of the Waverly-Rlchmond Im
provement Association nearly all the
streets not now open between East Twenty-sixth
and Forty-first and Dlvlislqn and
Ellsworth, are to be opened and sev
eral are to be Improved. - East Twenty
eighth, East Thirty-fourth, East Thirty
second, East Twenty-ninth. East Thirty-
third, East Thirty-fifth, East Thirty-ninth,
East Th'irty-fifth and East Twenty-seventh
streets are all to be opened. Clinton
street is to be opened from the westerly
line of Ravenswood to East Thirty-seventh
street. On all these streets J. S.
Foss, E. O. Minor and W. W. Terry were
appointed viewers. It Is proposed to im
prove Clinton and Ellsworth streets be
tween East Twenty-sixth and East Forty
first, the city limits. Eight-inch water
mains will be laid on Ellsworth and
Clinton streets before they are improved.
The committee from the Push Club held
many conferences with the Water Com
mittee about these mains, and succeeded
in getting them ordered. Gas mains also
are to be extended into that district.
The Push Club haB so much business on
hand that it has not yet voted Itself a
vacation, and is still meeting twice a
month. A. R. Joy is the president.
Another Street Needed. While the
improvement of Caywood street connect
ing; Milwaukie with East Eighth streets,
will help to divert the heavy travel on
Milwaukie street from the south, nothing
short of another street parallel with Mil
waukie will give permanent relief. It is
thought that "East Seventeenth street
opened and improved to Midway would be
the logical way to provide more facilities
for that end of the city. At Midway a
street could be opened on the west side
of Milwaukie avenue to Sellwood. It
would have to be forced through some
acreage ground that now intervenes, but
this tract must give way sooner or later.
It Is conceded that another street must
be opened and Improved south parallel
with Milwaukie as soon as it can be
done. Milwaukie street Is occupied with
double streetcar tracks.
Contract for College Botldiko. A
city permit has been issued for the erec
tion of the Concordia College building on
a five-acre tract bounded by East Twenty
seventh, Twenty-ninth, Riggin and Iceland
Btreets, near Woodlawn. It will be a
two-story frame building and will cost
about $6000. It Is for the German
X,uthemn Church of the Oregon and
Washington division of the Synod of Mis
souri and other states. This first struc
ture Is but one wing of the building that
will be finally erected on this ground.
The part to be built now will accom
modate 50 students. It will be a school
In which students' will be prepared for
any of the professions, and the church
proposes that it shall be first-class. It
will draw students from Oregon and

DONALDSON NOT INVOLVED
NO CHARGES TO BE FIIjED
AGAINST CITY OFFICIAL.
Foreman Jenkins, Not the Superin
tendent of Street Cl'anttvz De
partment, Accused by Men.
Alex Donaldson, superintendent of the
street-cleaning department was yester
day fully exonerated of all charges of
graft in connection with that department.
Mayor Lane and C. A. Coggswell, chair
man of the street committee of the execu
tive board, said that no charges of any
kind had been preferred against Superin
tendent Donaldson whom they- regard as
one of the most- honorable and faithful
employes in the citys service.
"Several days ago some of the men
employed In the street-cleaning depart
ment called at my office and asked If
they might prefer charges against the
management of that department," said
Mayor Lane yesterday. "I told them
that If they had any charges to make
they had the right to prefer them. They

partment, had been training a horse dur

with selling the street sweepings but at

at that time they requested additional
time to formulate their complaint and the
hearing against Jenkins was postponed
until August 8."
When before the committee Monday af
ternoon the attorney who has been en
gaged to represent Jenkins accusers said
he had not har time to Investigate the
charges and until he had done so would
nqt decide whether or not any charges
would be filed.

, Mrs.. Thomas Ryan, 33 years of age,
residing at Reservoir Park, between Kern
Park and Powell Valley, was fatally
burned by on explosion' of kerosene yester
day afternoon at 5 o'clock, and In the fire
which later consumed the house, Lester,
her 3-year-old son was burned to death.
Through the heroism of 11-year-old Ar
chie Conley, who resides in the neigh
borhood, Mrs. Ryan's baby, 7 months old,
was saved from death in the flames.
Mrs. Ryan was In haste to prepare the
evening meal and attempted to rekindle
the fire with kerosene. There were some
live coals In the stove and the explosion
which resulted threw biasing oil over the
unfortunate woman. Mrs. Ryan ran out
doors and was seen by Mrs. LucTnda Con
ley, who is a near neighbor. Mrs. Conley
rushed to Mrs. Ryan's assistance with a
blanket. She was not able to extinguish
the flames by this means and poured a
tubful of water over the woman. Mrs.
Ryan was horribly burned and no hope
is held out for her recovery by her physi
cians, Drs. Briggs and Bartell.
Mr. Ryan, who arrived on the scene at
6:30 o'clock, collapsed whan he learned the
terrible tragedy that had occurred In his
family. He is a shoemaker. Archie
Conley, who rushed into the burning
house and saved the baby, was slightly
Neighbors made a desperate fight to
save the little home in which the family
lived, but there was no means at hand,
and the house, with all Its contents,
burned to the ground. The place is so
far removed from the city limits that the
Portland firemen could lend no aid.
After the house was in ruins, and the
excitement somewhat calmed down, it
was discovered to the horror of all those
assembled that the little boy had not
been taken from the house. His charred
remains were , found by searchers after
the flames were extinguished. Coroner
Finley was notified and took charge of

the Holman ambulance found the house
and took Mrs. Ryan to St. Vincent's Hos

that she has no chance for recovery. She
was burned from head to feet, and her
death seems only a matter of a few hours
at most. Neighbors took charge of the

It was soma time In the first part of
January, this year, when the proprietor
of one of the largest markets In the
city came running breathlessly to us.
"Oh, Smith," crlett ha. "the Beef Trust
Is going to open up another market
right on the corner, and they say
they'll open up a door right next to
your door. For heaven's sake Smith,
sell out to the Trust while they are
ready to buy you, or they'll make you
lose the last dollar you've got."
Let them try It," replied Smith,
with a smile. "I don't get 'fraid, nor
I don't sell out"
Well, the market has been opened,
and, as the Irishman says, "this was
the l&t camel on the straw's back,"
and It didn't work. The market bears
the trade-mark of the Beef Trust. It
swings the sign of Government In
spection and uses the cull stuff that
nobody else wants. Other markets
throughout the city can send - their
left-overs and undesirable pieces of
meat to this market and they are sold
to the public as Government Inspected
meats. It is the Trust that roars and
screams and howls and bribes for
Government Inspection, and never un
der any circumstances allows Its retail
markets to accept It.
It is In the better class of markets
