A special committee of five will call
upon the City Council, during today's
.Melon, representing the Charter Com
mlBFlon. to ek further time In which
the Commission may attend to the duty
of revising the present city charter. It
is believed the Council will grant the
extension, for. if It does not, there is
. every reason to believe that the mem
bers of the Charter Commission will
' decline to work, as they reallre they
can do but little In time for the Novem
The committee which will call upon
the Council today la composed of ex
T nlted States Senator John M. Gearln.
Frederick V. Holman, Dr. C. H. Chap
man. John F. lKan and Dr. W. G. Eliot,
Jr The committee was appointed by
Ju'dfte Henry E. McGinn, the president,
by resolution of the Charter Commis
sion last Wednesday night, when it be
came known that the Commission could
not perform its Important duties prop
erly In so short a space of time as that
allowed by the resolution of the Coun
cil creatine; the Commission.
Judge McGinn said yesterday that. In
his opinion, the Commission cannot well
proceed without further time. Even
should the Commission decide to revise
the present charter, and simply do its
best to straighten out the tangles. It
could not do complete and thorough
work, it la held, in time to submit the
amendments and revisions to a vote of
the people at the November election, as
called for by the resolution of the City
There are some members of the Com
mission who strongly favor a new

The question of sending delegates
from the Charter 'Commission to the
convention of the League of American

the latter part of September, will also
come up for action during me touncn

JURY BLAMES PHYSICIANS
Death of Woman Declared to Have
Been Caused by Operation.
To ascertain the cause of the death of
Mrs. Besele Crlppin. which occurred last
Friday, Coroner Norden held an Inquest
yesterday and Drs. C. H. T. and C. H.
Atwood were censured.
Mrs. Crlppin died Friday as the re
sult of a criminal operation, according to
the Jury's verdict. Her death Is said to
have resulted from an operation per
formed at a sanatorium.
Many witnesses were heard during the
Inquest but none was able to place re
sponsibility for the woman's death. Her
husband, Jess Crlppin. knew nothing of
the cause and when Interrogated by Cor
oner Norden, collapsed.
In returning the verdict the Jury found
"That the woman came to her death as
the result of a criminal operation, per
formed by a physician whom we do not
know, and we censure the Drs. Atwol
for failure to ascertain from the patient
the Identity of the person who performed
Mrs. Crlppin lived in Sellwood and many
of her relatives testified at the Coroner's
Inquest yesterday. The Inquest was held.
It Is said, merely to Introduce sufficient
evidence to hold certain persons to the

BUSINESS MEN WANT CARS
LACK OF TRANSPORTATION FA
CILITIES CAUSES LOSS.
Officials of Northwest Company
Promise to Have Their Work
Completed In October.
Business men on East Burnslde
street and Union avenue ask that
tracks be laid across the steel frame
of the new bridge on Union avenue
over Sullivan's Gulch at once, and that
the cars be again routed by way of
Union avenue and over Burnslde
bridge. That these tracks can be laid
across the bridge In a short time and
cars cross. Instead of waiting until the
surface of the bridge Is paved. Is the
opinion of the business men, and an
effort will be made to have it done. For
nearly six months the business men on
these two street at the east end of
Burnslde bridge have suffered great
financial loss for the reason that the
cars are only routed one way, west
ward, over the Burnslde bridge.
Business has fallen off considerably.
One man on East Burnslde street and
Union avenue reports his loss in two
months has fallen off nearly $900.
Peter Zimmerman, a business man,
speaking of the matter yesterday, said:
"Union avenue has now been closed
nearly six months and we have suffered
great losses. It has been very hard on
everybody doing business at the east
end of Burnslde bridge. No cars run
eastward. Now I am told by engineers
that there would be no difficulties In
laying the double tracks over the
Union avenue bridge, and we could
have the cars back Inside of two weeks
instead of waiting two or three months.
It seems to me that the business men
and property-owners have suffered
enough loss, and that the City Council
should make provisions so these car
tracks can be laid at once across the
bridge and cars resume that route. I
believe also that effort should be made
to have the cars now using Grand and
Burnslde bridge continue on that route.
The Steel bridge Is crowded. The cars
could go northward on Union avenue
and return by Grand avenue as at
C. A. Blgelow, president of" the East
Side Business Men's Club, yesterday
took this matter up with the offllcals
of the Northwest Bridge Company, and
they assured him that the company
would have the bridge completed and
ready to be turned over to the city by
October 1. They said they do not
consider It feasible to lay the car
tracks until the paving of the surface
Is under way.

Larry Sullivan After
Ex-Portlander, With flOOO Grub
stake, Will Pronpeet In Mexico
With Hope of Finding Eldorado.
LARRY M. SULLIVAN, ex-sailor
boarding-house keeper In this city,
an unsuccessful candidate for the City
Council, and who later blossomed forth
Into a mining promoter and manipulat
or, amassing a large fortune in trading
In Nevada gold-mining properties, and
later losing his fortune as quickly as
he gained It. is now going io siuri
to prospect In Mexico with the hope of
winning a second fortune. A Los An
geles newspaper has the following ac
count of the ex-Portlander:
Larry M. Sullivan, th x-mlalag king of
Nevada, Is xolns to wield the pick again.
Larry has l(rned a contract with a number
of Los Angeles capitalists to go to Ban Lula.
Mexico, and prospect for gold. A former
millionaire operator, he has been provided
with a $1000 ' xrubetake and will start In
fresh, hoping once more to wreet from the
bosom of the earth a fortune which he has
won and lost. 1
The peculiar turn In fortune's wheel that
has sent Larry Sullivan off Into the inhos
pitable regions of Mexico to locate mining
claims mar not be considered so extraordi
nary when his remarkable career and person-
ality are considered. In the heyday of tne
Nevada mining boom, when the Sage Frush
state was the camping-ground for adventurers
and fortune-hunters from all over the wcrrld.
Sullivan was at the very top of the heap.
His company In Golddeld was the bglgest of
Its kind In the world. He had ZO sten
ographers and so many other office employes
that he could scarcely oount them. His
monthly advertising bill was a fortune. He
grubstaked proepectors on every hill and
plain of Southern Nevada and his daily mail
was filled with orders for stocks from every
city In the civilised world and with news
of other large strikes from every mining
district known to civilised man.
-One of Sullivan's partners was the lata
Governor- Sparks, of Nevada, who made a
comfortable fortune before the crash came.
This was caused by the decline In Nevada
mining stocks, which carried the big firm
down with It.
Why Smith is Opening
So Many Meat Markets
"We've got Smith loslnsr money on
every dollar's worth of meat he sells,
and he's not hurting urn a bit."
People who will remember a year
back can recollect when the Beef Trust
was running markets on both sides of
Smith on Alder street and this was
what the Beef Trust said: We ve got
Smith' losing money on every dollar s
worth of meat he sells, and he s not
hurting us a bit." It set us to thinking
"we would 4iave to hurt the Beef
Trust." Over in Albina folks could not
get the good meat they wanted. The
trust gave the marketmen only the
Inferior quality and class of meats.
Anything was good enough for Albina.
We started two markets oyer there ol2
Williams avenue and 791 . Mississippi
avenue, and we believe the Beef Trust
is hurt somewnat. In Oregon City the
working people have been complaining
for years that It was high-handed rob
bery to be obliged to pay 10c per pound
for meals that we are selling for 3c
and 5c So we started a market at the
Falls of the Willamette, and the Beef
Trust was hurt again. Down In Astoria
the Trust was clearing from $10.00 to
$20.00 on every bullock it sent to the.
town, and the people saw no getting
away from the exorbitant tax. Smith
has Just opened two markets In Astoria
and cut the price of most cuts of meat
exactly In half. Wherever a Smith
market goes the price of meat drops
from 40 to 50 per cent, and. for our
part we are very thankful to make He
a pound the year round. .Wherever you
see the Beef Trust In control the price
of meat soars.
And so, old Beef Trust we'll give
you no peace nor rest, we 11 dog your
footsteps; we'll punch and pommel you
until you dance with pain and cry In
torture that Smith is hurting you. And
after that some more.
