THE MOKJNIJm OK EGONL&JS, FRIDAY, AUGUST. 2, 1907.
Mil CUKE IS STILL
Not Ready to Announce His
Intentions With Regard
SILENT AS THE SPHINX
Bat Decision Seems to Be in Pro
cess of Incubation Portland
- Lawyer Well kquipped
for the liace.'
Political prophets expect H. M. Cake
to be a big figure in the coming Sen
atorial race. They say Senator C. W.
Futlon and ex-Senator F. W. Mulkey
will have to show some speed if they
beat Mr. Cake. It is taken for granted
in some quarters that Mr. Cake will
enter the race, although he has not
yet announced his candidacy. Mr.
Cake is keeping his own counsel. In
fact the Sphinx was an incorrigible
babbler, compared with him. If you
ask him if he is going to run for the
distinguished office of Senator, he will
not tell you. His decision in the mat
ter seems to be still in the process of
Incubation. When the chick hatches,
then Mr. Cake will know what he is
going to do, and then possibly he may
tell. But until then, a dignified silence.
As to being a political stalking
horse for Senator Fulton in the com
ing campaign, Mr. Cake denies that
Btory. He is not in league with Sen
ator Fulton in any way, he says. He
thinks the idea Is absurd and wonders
how anyone can figure out any profit
to either in the combination, for in the
public mind both will, be candidates
for the same office, he says.
Neither is more than one of the Cake
brothers to run for office in the event
that H. M. Cake decides to enter the
lists. W. M. Cake, current rumor not
withstanding, will not offer himself to
his party as gubernatorial timber.
This apparently is settled.
Cake Knows the Game.
If H. M. Cake Anally decides to come
out for the toga at the primary elec
tion in April, he will know just how
to make it warm for his antagonists,
for he has already been through one
such campaign. He stumped the en
tire state last year in the contest with
Bourne, and knows Just how to pro
ceed. He learned a good deal in that
campaign regarding the fondest am
bitions of each section, and if he starts
out again with a choice assortment of
campaign speeches, each will exploit
the pet hobby of the section where it
is to be delivered.
There is nothing quite so valuable
In stumping a state as to know your
audiences. Armed with this informa
tion, a speaker can bring out a thun
derclap of applause as surely as man
can explode a firecracker by lighting
But if Mr. Cake is well equipped for
the campaign, much more can be said
of his qualifications for the office, for
he is already a near-Senator, having
enjoyed the prestige of virtually being
a Senator for two whole days directly
following the primary election in the
Spring of 1906. Congratulations were
showered upon him and Mr. Cake is
said to have had himself measured
for a splendid toga of the latest cut.
Then the cruel news came in from the
distant cow counties' that his opponent
Jonathan Bourne, had been chosen by
His Probable Platform.
What Mr. Cake's platform will be in
case he pursues the Senatorship, re
mains to be learned. He may justly
point to his untarnished record during
the two days he was believed to be
Oregon's next Senator. Anyway a
greater and more glorious Oregon,
with every aid to development along
all lines, including deeper harbors, bet
ter channels to the sea, improved
inland waterways and better transpor
tation facilities of all kinds will prob
ably be the slogan of the Cake cam
paign. This will make a strong hit up the
state too. Everybody will endorse that
programme. With the strength Mr.
Cake developed in his last campaign,
and backed by the large number of
friends he made on .us travels through
out Oregon, no one should be surprised
If Mr. Cake "runs like a scared wolf"
In all parts of the state, if he consents
to enter the race.
BUYS WOODLAWN MAINS
City Will Pay $4000 for Suburban
' Water System.
At the meeting of the Water Board
yesterday it was decided to purchase
tor the city the under-ground piping
system of Woodlawn for $4000. The
system is now in the hands of private
citizens to whom the residents of the
-addition pay a monthly rental. The
City Attorney was instructed to pre
pare the necessary papers, and It is
expected that the Woodlawn water
feystem will be entirely under city con
trol by September 1 at the latest.
A delegation living in the vicinity
of Albert 'and Fourteenth streets, on
the East Side, complained that in their
section over 600 homes were without
fire protection, , including a $5000
echoolhouse. There is plenty of water
but no fire hydrants. The matter was
referred to the Fire Chief.
Mayor Lane offered for considera
tion a plan tried in Buffalo of watering
certain ,parked streets from the fire
hydrants daily, or several times a
week during the dry season, which not
only wet the grass but was "good ex
ercise for the firemen," as the Mayor
expressed it. The suggestion was not
adopted because of lack of pressure and
a threatened shortage of water.
A somewhat excited citizen com
plained that water mains were needed
along his street, but suddenly subsided
and vanished when it was pointed out
to him that the section in which he
lived was out of the city limits."
The sentiment of the Board was that
several hundred more fire hydrants are
needed but are not obtainable at pres
ent, owing to lack of funds available
for that particular purpose.
MERCURY, NORMAL AGAIN
Discomfort, From Heat at an End.
Humidity and Temperature.
Possibly the sun strained itself when
it piled up a record of 102 degrees on the
thermometer Tuesday. Wednesday, as
will be recalled, was many degrees cooler,
' 'while yesterday was oomfortable from
morning until night, the mercury being

humidity, too, was lighter and altogether
Portland had a most comfortable and re
Contrary to a prevailing belief, ocean
breezes are not the most cooling thing n
the world, and more often than not have
quite an opposite effect. It is from the
ocean that the atmosphere derives it hu
midity, or moisture. The capacity of the
air for holding vapor or moisture varies
with the temperature. Warm air will
hold more vapor than cold air and it is
tiie moisture in the air that combines
with the heat to produce the feeling of
Take a cubic foot of air and infuse a
certain amount of moisture at a stated
temperature. Enclose the air in a vessel
where no part can escape. If the humid

the air is saturated, it will be possible
to add more vapor by raising the tem

part of the moisture will be thrown off
to settle at the bottom of the vessel. In
this way the process of rain is carried
The air gathers its humidity from the
ocean in passing over the water or from
lakes and rivers in coming from inland.
It is patent that under favorable condi
tions the air from the ocean will have a
greater humidity and therefore be more
oppressive when the temperature is high.
While 102 degrees of heat was felt in

sponding temperature would have been
less uncomfortable in a dryer climate,
such as Arizona.
SCXSET MAGAZINE ISSUES PA
CIFIC NORTHWEST NUMBER.
Will Attract Attention to Portland
and This Entire Section Issue
Over 100,000 Copies.
Sunset Magazine for August is just
out, and Is an unsually attractive num
ber. It is devoted especially to theJ-
i-aciiic Northwest, and perhaps it is
not too much to say that it is the most
comprehensive number of a Western
magazine which has ever been pub
lished. Its illustrated articles and
stories depicts the spirit of progress
that is characteristic of the entire Pa
cific Coast, but especially of Oregon
The cover design is an unusually ef
fective thing, showing the monolith
known as St. Peter's dome on the Co
lumbia River. The scene is reproduced
in three colors and makes a striking
cover design. The leading article is
written by E. W. Wright, and treats
the entire Pacific Northwest. Thirty
two pages are devoted to this subject,
with elaborate illustrations accom
panying the text. Portland, Seattle,
Tacoma, Spokane, Vancouver and Vic
toria, B. G; Astoria, Coos Bay, East
ern Oregon and Washington, Southern
Oregon and other points are shown by
very attractive illustrations. There
are 16 full-page illustrations in two
colors showing the beautiful scenery
of the Pacific Northwest. The best
work of the Kiser Photo Company,
Benjamin A. Glfford, George M. Weister
and other prominent photographers of
the Pacific Northwest is shown in this
number in the colored illustrations.
Mr. C. C. Chapman, of this -city, writes
on "A Goal for Young Men." This is
a unique article in reference to the de
velopment of Portland. Mr. Chapman
has handled an old subject in a new
way. The article will undoubtedly be
widely read and should result in much
good to the city. It Is illustrated with
views of many of the buildings that are
now being erected and will give the
reader an idea of the substantial char
acter of Portland.
Mr. Edmund P. Sheldon writes on
"Millions in Trees" the forest wealth
of the Pacific Northwest. Some of the
facts which are given in this article
will impress the reader with the great
forest wealth of this section and espe
cially in Oregon, where, Mr. Sheldon
Btates, there are 300,000,000,000 feet of
William L. Finley and Herman T.
Bohlman, whose work is attracting at
tention throughout the entire country,
have contributed to this issue of Sun
set Magazine a study on "Feathered
Foragers." The number contains, in
addition, an article on "Diversified
Farming in Oregon," by Dennis R.
Stovall. "Sierra Wild Flowers," by
Katharine Chandler; "Reminders of
California," by John P. Young; a prize
story, "The Garden of Content," by E.
Mirrielees; and "The Passion Play In
California." by Charles Warren Stod
dard. Mr. Stoddard compares this re
production in Santa Clara with the
famous Oberammergau Passion Play.
He says in reference to this point:
"If I were asked which of these Pas
sion Plays affected me most profound
ly; which touched my heart more than
another and has left an impression that
is not likely to fade with time, as that
of the others have, I should say with
out hesitation, it is "Nazareth," the
Passion Play of Santa Clara. It seems
to me the most reverent and the most
beautiful, and it grows in beauty and
reverence the more familiar one be
This number also contains an inter
esting love story, with Mt. Hood as
the setting, written by Ann Shannon
Monroe, of this city. There are also
the usual departments, "Books and
Writers," "In the Wide-Awake West,"
and "The Course of the Empire," which
aid in making a number of the highest
class and one that will undoubtedly
prove of permanent historical interest
and value, as well as a magazine for
BADLY HURT IN RUNAWAY
Mrs. Allen McDonnell Thrown to
Pavement From Buggy.
Mrs. Allen McDonnell, wife of a timber
dealer, living at 682 Schuyler street,
IrVington, was seriously injured at Lar
rabee and Cherry streets at 8 o'clock

nell's condition is very serious.

FURTHER CUTS ANNOUNCED
Pacific Coast Company Again Re
duces Freight Rates.
LOS ANGELES. Cal., Aug. 1. That the
slashing of freight rates by the steamship
companies operating vessels between Los
Angeles and San Francisco did not end
as cut out was demonstrated when the
Pacific Coast Steamship Company an
nounced a new schedule which will go Into
The new rate is 2 to 3 cents lower than
the one announced Tuesday. The notice
of the new rates was .telephoned to Los
Angeles by the general freight agent at
When asked if they would meet the new
rate, the district freight agent of the In
dependent Company stated that his com
pany was here to stay, and would con
tinue to haul freight.
The present schedule makes it practi
cally impossible for either company to
operate at a profit; as the railroads
charge 15 cents for hauling freight to the
wharves, leaving the steamship compa
nies 6 cents with which to defray the
expenses of handling the freight. Both
companies state that they will keep up
the light to the end.

CLASHES WITH MAGISTRATE
DETECTIVE MAHER REFUSED
WARRANT IN POLICE COURT.
Judge Cameron and District Attor
ney's Sleuth Differ Regarding
Mrs. Sleight's Condition.
The Municipal ' Court room was the
scene of a stormy encounter yesterday
morning between Judge Cameron and
Patrick Maher, detective attached to the
District Attorney's office. The battle of
words' was the sequel to another out
break on the part of the Irrepressible
Mrs. Sleight, whose neighbors at Sixteenth
and Northrup streets have several times
appealed to the police to compel her to
keep the peace.
Maher lives in the neighborhood, and
yesterday morning, before court con
vened, appeared before Judge Cameron
to ask that a warrant be issued for Mrs.
Sleight's arrest. The Judge said he did
not think Mrs. Sleight was in her right
mind, and added:
"It would be better to lay the matter
before the County Court and have three
physicians appointed to examine into her
Detective Maher's temperature at once
began to rise.
"I'm a citizen of this county, and I de
mand a warrant."
"You can't' talk that way to tne," re
torted the Judge. "Do as I have sug
gested and quit bothering me. I'm sick
and tired of hearing about this woman
and of having her brought Into court."
"I'll not stand for that," exclaimed
Maher. "I'm talking to you as a citizen,
not as a Judge. You are not on the bench
"Leave at once," ordered the Judge,
"or I'll have you put under arrest."
Maher then walked out. Later J. J.
Driscoll, brother-in-law- of Maher, asked
the Judge to issue the warrant, but he
still refused the request.
Detective Maher, explaining the clash,
denies that he tried to use the court to
satisfy a private grudge, and says that
his action in the matter was only that
of a citizen asking for protection for his
neighborhood against a woman who Is In
the habit of causing disturbances at all
hours of the night. Mr. Maher further
says that he was not expelled from the
court forcibly as an evening paper as
serted, and that Judge Cameron did not
at any time lay hands on him. Judge
Cameron, was not on the bench at the
"As a matter of fact," said Maher,
"and according to Judge Cameron's own
statement, Mrs. Sleight may be insane,
but, then, it was his duty, after the City
Attorney made the complaint, to issue the
warrant, give her a fair trial, and If she
was proved guilty commit her to the
County Court for an examination as to
her sanity. The police records will show
that at 12 o'clock Wednesday night the
residents of the part of the city in which
Mrs. Sleight lives telephoned to the police
station for officers to quell the noisy
woman. I am a neighbor of the woman,
and nearly every night she raises such a
row that it is impossible to sleep in the
"My brother-in-law and I appeared as
two citizens, and I think that we were
entitled to a little recognition from Judge
Cameron. This woman for whom I asked
the warrant twice has been arrested and
convicted in the Municipal Court. The
last time the complaint was sworn to by
Officer Franklin. I did not threaten the
Judge, and do not bear him any ill will,
but I think the treatment I received In
his court was altogether wrong."
