Xomfrous Krasnns Assigned by
Complainants for Reductions in
Figure Fixed by Assessor
on Various Properties.
Nearly 40 com Dlalnts against assess
ments were made to the County Board of
Equalization yesterday. Several were from
corporations, a few from firms and in
dividuals having large personal or realty
interests, and the remainder from owners
of property of comparatively small valu
ations. The Astoria A Columbia River Railroad
Company filed an objection yesterday
morning to the assessment of its rolling
stock at $24.7:0. The railroad company,
through John McOuire, the superintend
ent, stated that only a small part of its
stock is In Multnomah County. Although
the rolling stock was Inventoried March
1. 1907, at 1252.962, it is contended that
wear and tear have reduced the actual
cash value to 131,772. A request is made
that the assessment of the entire stock
be apportioned between Multnomah, Clat
sop and Columbia Counties. 'The com
pany's rolling stock consists of nine loco
motives, a switch engine, 23 coaches, 144
flat cars, 43 box cars, six bunk oars, a
plledtiver, steam shovel and plow, the
latter worth $;.

assessment of its money, notes and ac

Graton & Knight Manufacturing Com
pany has protested against the assess
ment of its merchandise at jao.OfiO because
agencies were established last January
in two Washington cities and at Coos
Hay, thereby bringing about a decrease
of the Portland stock. The merchandise
assessment should be 915, io0. It is con
tended. The money, notes and accounts
ltm should be reduced from $10,000 to
J7W9. according to the company's report.
A. M. Sterns, 910 South Decatur street,
St. John, objected because his assess
ment was T!X b'ss than it should be. He
asks "Brother Slgler" to "please correct."
Sterns' money, notes and accounts were
arbitrarily assessed at liJ. He says the

M. 1 Kline, a wholesale plumber, doing
business on Front street, has put in an
objection to the assessment of his stock
and fixtures at JS7.0O3. He says this item
should be not more than tS.OJiO, as his
stock has decreased In value 2a per cent
since last year. The Crane Company,
says Kline, Is assessed at tffW0 for stock
worth three times what Kline's is; while
the Could Company fs assessed but Ja.OiX)
for stock worth at least twice as much
as Kline's. Kline's money, notes and ac

The hull of tile steamer Astorian, once
a rate-cutter in the Astoria trade, was
aswssed to I. B. Pcott at 115.000. J. Allen
Harrison, assistant superintendent of the
Vancouver Transportation Company, ac
knowledges ownership of the property,
but says the machinery has been re
moved from the steamer and the hull is
rotten and of no value. He asks that
the assessment be stricken from the rolls.

C. Minsinger says that the assessment
of lot 8 and a part of lot 9. Alhlna

Angellne Berry complained against her
assessment of f-VO an acre for 40 acres

unimproved, and that land north and east
of her property Is assessed at only $150
According to Charles P. Church, an
Injustice has been done him by the as
sessment of inside lots at Alder Springs
at and corners at $.". At Capitol Hill,
which adjoins his addition, the assess
ment is Jtn for Inside lots and iv for
corners. Mr. Church say Capitol Hill
enioys an oren five-cent car fare, while
Aliler Sprlngs has to pay a commuter's
fan of five cents or an open fare of 10
cents. On account of the difference in
the fare, he has sold his lots at $30 less
tlian the prices on the favored Capitol
Hill, and he asks that his assessment be
reduced $10 per lot.
The Portland Kleetrie Sign Works asks
that Its assessment of $300 for merchan

of the Assessor's arbitrary valuation.
Raleigh Wilson bought a sailboat two
years ago for ShX. The boat was as

Jack Rankin is suing R. A. Proudfoot

Circuit Court, to recover $1S on- a me
chanic's lien. He says that in March, 1907.
he lathed and plastered a portion of the
hotel at East Burnelde and East Third
streets. He says also that Erv Rankin
and E. A. Rankin worked upon the build

were turned over to the plaintiff. Proud
foot, on the other band, asserts that he
entered into a contract with E. A. Rankin

Enigraarelle Proves a
Fine and Dandy Whip.
istomttoi la Vaudeville Gsldea
Ceara aad Pour Through Busy
Dowatowa CUT Streets.
AVERT fine and fancy whip Is that
Enlgmarelle thing that Is being
exhibited at the Grand thia week, and
it is a pity that it was not allowed to
enter the tooling events of the recent
Horse Show. Had It participated, blue
ribbons might have been its very own.
It was announced by ths management
that yesterday at noon the wonderful
electrical manikin would drive a tally
ho from the stage entrance of the
Grand Theater around the principal
streets of the city for the edification
of the curious multitude. There were
many of the skeptical ones who doubt
ed If there would really be an attempt
to "pull off" the affair.
"It can't do It. and Its simply anothar
of those press agent stunts." said the
doubters, but all the same there was
a crowd In front of the stage entrance
of the Grand at the appointed hour
which almost blocked Seventh street.
They saw a smart-looking tallyho with
Its four spirited horses awaiting the me
chanical marvel, but they still refused
to believe. Finally, when the blonde
haired, radiantly garbed Enlgmarelle
was discovered descending the Incline
from the stage door there was a gasp
of astonishment from the awaiting
crowd. Some of the spectators said:
"There's a little man Inside of it. See
how tall It Is." "Of course there's
someone Inside of It or It couldn t
move like that."
These are a few of the comments
that were heard. After Investigating
the matter of this man-created man
and having seen how scientifically
simple Is Its construction, the Idea
that It Is a fake seems ridiculous.
When Enlgmarelle was finally assisted
onto the box seat, the lines which
controlled the four fiery untamed
steeds count 'em, four were strapped
to the wooden hands of the manikin,
a trumpeter on the rear seat sounded
a note or two and the sensational drive
was on. Down Washington, up Alder
on to Morrison, and In fact before the
tour was over most of the Important
downtown streets had been traversed.
Not a single mishap marred the drive,
and to all intents and purposes the
man with the lines might have been the
most experienced Jehu In town.
The mechanism worked perfectly and
Enlgmarelle was absolutely unassisted
during the entire course of the drive.
As an unique demonstration It has
never been duplicated here and was
well worth all the attention It attract
ed. It clearly demonstrated that the
Invention is capable of doing all that
Is claimed for It and added very ma
terially to the Interest the public feels
In Its appearance at the Grand during
the present week.
BID FOR COUNTY ACREAGE
George X. Strong Makes Best Offer
for John Barnes Tract.
Eight bids for the John Barnes
tract of 48 acres were received by the
County Commissioners, and opened yes
terday morning. George M. Strong of
fered to pay $100 an acre. This was

W. 8. Chapman has filed suit In the
Circuit Court over the land, saying that
the county broke its contract with
John Barnes In not keeping hlra at the
County Hospital, and that hence the
land is not the county's property, but
belongs to Chapman on account of a

"Well, sor, he stands fr state rights,

Further plans for a rousing finish of
the campaign in' this state were consid
ered at a meeting of the executive com
mittee of the Republican State Central
Committee at Republican headquarters
yesterday. Reports from every section
of the state were canvassed, giving the

to have Congressman W. E. Humphrey,
of Washington, deliver two addresses In
this state next week. The first meeting
will be held In this city Monday night,
but the place of meeting has not been

Mr. Alexander has been sent here by

H0B50N IS HOPEFUL
Says Taft Must Depend on the
Country's Floating Vote.
HOT FIGHT IN NEW YORK
Congressman on Visit to Portland
Declares That Bryan's Election
Is Assured If Democrats Car
ry the Empire State.
"It will be possible for Taft to be elect
ed only if he receives the floating vote of
the country," declared Congressman Rich
mond Pearson Hobson at the Portland
Commercial Club yesterday. "In fact, re
gardless of that consideration, Bryan's
election is assured If he should carry the
State of New York. Bryan's chances In
the Empire State are good and It is there
that the campaign will be waged with
Intense earnestness by both parties during
the concluding days of the campaign."
Congressman Hobson reached this city
yesterday afternoon from Pendleton
where the preceding afternoon he ad
dressed an audience of voters. Last night
he spoke at Oregon City and this after
noon he will deliver an address at Astoria
leaving tonight for Eugene and Southern
Oregon points where he will spend the re
mainder of the week. Leaving Oregon
the Alabama Congressman will go into
California where he will spend the last
week of the campaign stumping the state
in the interest of Bryan and Kern.
"During my Chautauqua lectures
through the states of the Middle West last
Summer, I satisfied myself that in the
November Presidential election there
would be a deflection of between 15 and
18 per cent of the Republican voters of
those states to the Democratic ticket,"
said Congressman Hobson in discussing
the situation. "That will be sufficient to
restore Missouri to the Democratic col
umn and to make the result in Nebraska
and other adjoining states extremely
"A recent poll in Indiana insures that
slate for Bryan. The result in Ohio will
be close. In the latter utate the great
majority of the negro vote, will be tast for
Bryan and there is no question but that
considerable of the Foraker strength will
go to the Nebraskan.
"There is not the remotest probability
that Taft will Invade the South. The
Republicans are making a vigorous fight
in Tennessee where they expect to accom
plish the election of a number of Con
gressmen, ' but the Democrats are certain
to carry the state for the National ticket
and it is Improbable that they will lose
any of the Congressional districts.
"It Is impossible to make any reliable
prediction of the result of the election.
There are various situations to be consid
ered. Principal among these, of course,
is the Independent and floating vote. The
time has gone when professional politi
cians are able to forecast how this class
of citizens will vote. They practically
hold the balance of power. As to the vote
of organized labor there is no question
but that it will be two to one for Bryan.
"The Socialists are not especially to be
feared. I consider that there is a limita
tion of strength for them to attain and,
having attained that position, they will
cease to Increase either in numbers or in
influence. The farmers of the country
also have come to be a factor In the elec
tion, more so, perhaps, than ever before.
In the election this year they will be
found to be more equally distributed be
tween the Republican and Democratic
parties In the election of President than

Tacoma Mounted Policeman Has
Narrow Escape From Death.
TACOMA, Wash., Oct. 21. (Special.)
With his 1200-pound horse lying across his
abdomen where It had been thrown after
being gored by a maddened cow. Mounted
Patrolman J. C. Williasas narrowly es
caped death today.
"I was awakened by a neighbor, who
said a cow and a calf were eating his
fruit trees," said Patrolman Williams. "I
got up and saddled the horse and after
roping the cow started to take her to ths
pound. Just as we passed in front of my
home the calf butted against the eow and
she hooked my horse, running her horn
into the horse's body. The horse began to
buck and entangled the rope about me
and I was unable to jump. . The horse,
overcome by pain and the goading horns
that were digging into his flanks, fell.
"The sight or smell of the blood seemed
to madden the cow and she tried again
and again to prod her horns into my
body, but could not reach me and I
finally worked myself free."

EARLY RETURNS PROBABLE
Election Result In Portland Should
Be Known Promptly.
If the Judges and clerks of election are
even average announcers and markers
the result of the vote in the Presidential
balloting in Portland will be known with
in a few hours after the closing of the
"As only four names will have to be
called and counted on the ticket voted. I
believe the result in a majority of ths
precincts, or a sufficient number of votes
to show how the precincts are going, will
be given to the public by S o'clock in the
evening of the day of election," said
County Clerk Fields yesterday. "The
count of the full vote of the larger pre
cincts in the city and most of those out
side will report before midnight. But we
shall certainly know bow the city voted
by o'clock, and we shall be able to tell
how most of the outside precincts went by
midnight at the latest."
Mr. Fields' belief that the result will be
known by 9 o'clock is based upon the
work of the judges and clerks. Accept
ing fast work in the past as a standard,
he says four ballots should be marked
each minute, and the count made in the
smaller precincts within two hours. In
the larger precincts, such as No. 8, on
the West Side, and Nos. 69 and 84. on the
East Side, which will cast more than 600
votes each, the time will be longer. Nos.
69 and 84 have a registration of about Too
each, but it is not believed that either will
cast more than 550 votes. No. 8 cast about
6o0 at the last county election, and 400 of
them were for Mr. Fields. Thia was the
largest vote ever cast for a candidate by
any precinct In the county.

RATIONAL CURE FOR ECZEMA
No More Dosing the Stomach Care
1 the Skin Through the Skis.
When you have a scratch on your
hand you wash it out and cleanse It
and then the .kin cures itself. You do
not take blood medicine to cure a fes
The best skin specialists today are
agreed that the only way to cur. the
skin is through the skin.
The fact that ecsema is a skin dis
ease and not a blood disease is evident
from statistics which show that nearly
all eczema sufferers are perfectly heal
thy in all other ways except as to
their skin. If the ecsema patients were
really suffering from an inward mal
ady, the entire body and not only the
skin would be diseased.
You can prove Immediately the re
lief of a true skin cure by using oil
of wintergreen as compounded in D.
D. D. Prescription. .
This liquid attacks the disease
germs, numbing them while building
up the healthy tissue of the skin. We
have now handled this meritorious
and thoroughly scientific remedy for
so long and have seen its reliable re
sult so many times that we freely ex
press our confidence.
