1 Vaughn Toted against and Cottel
for the Rushlight amendment two
While it is regarded as certain that
Mayor Lane's veto of the amendment
to the Cellars women-ln-saloona ordl
nanre will be sustained by the City
Council this morning by a lack of one
er two votes to pass the measure over
the Executive's objection, it is posi
tively known that sustaining it will be
only a temporary victory. Councilman
Rushlight, author of the celebrated
amendment, announced yesterday his
determination to "fight to a finish, un
t'l fair play and a square deal for all"
are secured. This Is a virtual defiance
of the Mayor and the faction adhering
to the Cellars law, and makes certain
a bitter struggle. It is believed by
those who have followed the case
closely that a compromise will be ef
fected In some manner.
Two Votes Are Doubtful.
The action of the Council this morn
ing:, as forecasted last night, depends
upon the votes of Councilmen Cottel
and Vaughn. The two declined to state
which way they will vote. Mr. Vaughn
saying he will be consistent, and Dr.
Cottel saying "I'm in doubt." There
are two constructions to Mr. Vaughn's
statement. One Is that he will vote to
sustain the veto because he voted
against the amendment two weeks ago,
and tne other Is that he will vote as
he thinks best at the time the ballot
Is taken, all things being: carefully
considered. It Is confidently believed
that Dr. Cottel will vote to sustain
the veto. He said:
"Mayor Lane. I have observed, is
nearly always right. It Is pretty safe
to sustain him In any case, and It Is
likely I will vote to sustain the veto,
although at this time I am In doubt."
Dr. Cottel Is opposed to the Cellars
ordinance and also to the amendment.
He believes both are too drastic and
unsatisfactory, and that It would be
better to repeal both. ' It Is his belief
that reforms should not be Inaugurated
by the Council.
Declares He Is Right.
Mr. Rushlight, who la president of
the Council. Is confident hla view of the
principle at stake Is correct; that It Is
unfair to say to one man that It Is all
right to permit women in his establish
ment If he has 400 square feet of floor
space In the dining-room where he
serves liquor with meals, and to tell
another man that he cannot serve li
quor to women because he has less
than 409 square feet In his dining-room-
"I am certainly going to vote to pass
the amendment over the Mayor's veto,"
said Mr. Rushlight. "Most certainly. I
am: and not only that I am going to
fight this thing to a finish, simply be
cause I think I am right. I don't care
whether the Cellars law survives to
morrow morning or not. for I am de
termined to keep on until I secure
Justice and a square deal for all alike.
I know that my position In this matter
Is right and I will maintain It."
The veto will come up as the first
Item of business at this morning's ses
sion of the Council and bids fair to be
exciting. It Is probable the Council
chamber will be crowded to the doors
with those Interested In the controversy.
HQrOR DEALER FAVORS LAW
Saloonkeeper Says Women Are Nui
sance) to His .Trade.
"Speaking from a purely selfish view
point. I honestly trust that the friend,
of the Rushlight amendment to the Cel
lars women-ln-salnons ordinance fail to
get the necessary number of votes In the
City Council to carry the amendment
over the Mayor's veto." declared a saloon
man yesterday. By the provisions of the
Ollars ordinance this man is one of the
smaller liquor dealers who has been re
quired to abandon serving drinks to
women In rooms adjoining his saloon.
"Saloon men who encourage the patron
age of women at their resorts are wel
come to that trade." he continued. "As
for me. I have had enough of It. It has
been my experience that women In or
around a saloon are an intolerable
nuisance and a source of annoyance from
the time you open your saloon In the
morning until you close It at night. Young
girls not over IS years of age will come
Into your place and. with their escorts,
will insist that they are of age and de
mand a drink. Refuse them and you
Insult them; serve them, and under the
law you are held responsible for serv
ing drinks to a minor.
"Furthermore, the average woman who
visits such resorts Is a petty larcenlst
In her desire to add to her collection of
souvenirs at home. It has- been prac
tically Impossible for me to keep my
stock of glasses and silver spoons re
plenished. If you try to treat them
right and serve drinks in choice cut glass
ware, you will tind that the average
woman will appropriate at least one glass
, Just as surely as she visits your saloon.
My patience long since became exhausted
with women In saloons and for some time
before the Cellars ordinance became ef
fective I served drinks only In cheaper
glasses. But that did not serve to curb
the grafting proclivities of women visit
era They take everything in sight that
can be conveniently carried away. The
only satisfaction I derived from serving
them drinks with cheaper glasses was
that It proved leas expensive to me. I
am through with having women in my
saloon and am satisfied with the ordi
nsnce as originally passed. Uquor men
who want the trade of women are wel
come to ft. I want no more of It."
J on the Foster road, saving the adjoin
f ing buildings, have stimulated Interest
in movement to secure a chemical en
i glne for the company. Although It has
been over a year since the first effort
was made to raise money to get the
chemical, rhe matter has dragged until
the volunteers had become discouraged.
Men who subscribed say they are ready
to pay up and subscribe more. The
chemical engine will cost $809. Prop
erty to the amount of over $15,000 has
been destroyed in that neighborhood
the past year.
NEED OF HUMANE SOCIETY
Secretary Reports on Work and
Calls for Funds.
PORTLAND. Nov. 10. (To the Ed
Iter.) The "Oregon Humane Society hav
ing become a permanent and Indispen
sable organization In our city, we can
look with pride upon Its past history,
extending over a period of more than
3 years. Previous to its organization
ample laws did not exist wherein chil
dren and brute creatures were protect
ed from cruel treatment. Humane edu
cation was not then regarded as im
portant to the boys and girls in our
public schools. The law of kindness
had not yet been unrolled before the
minds and hearts of the young. Horses
were driven with galled shoulders and
backs, underfed and overworked, left
to stand in the cold and storm without
blankets; In fact, they had no rights
which thelrowners were bound to re
spect. Our birds of plumage and song were
thoughtlessly destroyed, and their
nests robbed of eggs and brood. It has
been proven beyond question that hu
mane education inaugurated by humane
societies has lessened crime in a re
markable way. thereby saving a large
tax to the public and creating a sentl
ment and love for the brute creation
which extends also to mankind.
Since the organization of our society
Portland has "grown from a quiet vll
lage to a commercial city of more than
200.000 Inhabitants, and still growing
beyond the conceptions of the most
In view of this fact, the time has
come when substantial provision muf(
be provided If the work is to keep pas:e
with our rapid growth. The -officers
of the sortety have, during a period of
more than 30 years, given their time
gratuitously to secure the objects In
view, and asked but little at the hands
of the public.
We are aware that our citizens are
often called upon to contribute to char
ltles, and while a liberal response li
made, the Humane Society, though cer
talnly deserving of a share of the pub
lic contributions, has been forgotten
After reading the following report, you
see the needs of our society. W. T.
Hhanahan will call upon you, and we
trust you will reserve a portion of your
contributions to help carry on the
work through the coming year.

Military and civilian riflemen from
19 of the leading; nations are to assem
ble in the United States next Septem
ber for the greatest rifle competition
n the history of the world. Prelimi
nary announcement of the hig competi
tion was received yesterday forenoon
by Adjutant-General W. E. Flnzer, of
the Ore cr on National Guard, from tne
National Board for the .Promotion of
Rifle Practice. General Finxer was
also notified that Oregon marksmen
who have won distinction In National
ntatches of the past Ave years will have
an opportunity for trial at place on
the American team.
The big- International shoot will be
held either at Camp Perry or on the
range at Seagirt, N. J. Which of these
places will be selected Is a matter yet
to be settled. The personnel of the
American team, too, remains to be set
tled, and this will be effected In the
early Spring. The United States has
won all international competitions thus
far, winning the Palma trophy in Can
ada two years ago, and sweeping the
field at Btsley, England, last Summer.
Needless to say, every effort will be
made to maintain the American su
premacy at the coming matches.
Countries- That Will Compete.
The countries which will compete
are: England, Canada, Australia,
France, Swltxerland, The Netherlands,
Norway. Denmark, Sweden. Italy, Ger
many. Austria, Greece, Mexico, Argent
tine Republic, Brazil, Spain, Belgium,
and Japan. Forjtial Invitations have
been sent out through the State De
partment, and will be presented
through the various Ministers and Ambassadors.
More elaborate plans are being
made for this series of matches than
ever before," the announcement sets
out. "In addition to the Palma match
for the military long-range champion
ship of the world, won in 1907 by the
American team at Ottawa, there will
be an individual competition at 1000
yards, a team match at 800 meters, an
Individual competition at 800 meters.
and a revolver competition at 50
Following are the conditions of these
Th conditions for the Palma team trophy
match provide for teams of eifcht, unlng
the national military arms of their coun
try. Two tarrets will b allotted to earn
team, the distances be In 800, (HH) and lOrtfl
yards. The targets will be rectanprular, 12x
6 feet, with a 3ft-Inch hull's eye. an Inner
rlhcle S4 Inches In diameter, a "magpie
quart" 72 Inches and the remainder of the
tarset constituting the outer. The value of

"magpie." 3; outers, 2. There will be 1ft
shots per man at each distance, without
artificial rent, with two sighting shots ad
ditional. Telescopic and magnifying sights
ar barred. There are also minor technical
conditions such as are prescribed from year
to year by the country holding the trophy.
Medals for Winning Team.
Each member of the winning team will
-clv a medal and other prixs In this
match that will be determined later. The In
dividual match at lOrtO yards will attrart
great attention, as Amerlra, by reason of
Its records, and Its victories In the Olympic
games and eluewhere, claims the distinction
of having the finest long-range marksmen
In the world. In this match any rifle, with
any sight. Including telescopic, and any
ammunition may be used, thus throwing
the match open to the entire world. The
distances, targets, count and dimensions,

target will be white, one meter In diameter, I
with a black center of 60 centimeters
diameter, the entire target being divided
Into ten contentric circles coasting from
one to ten points. This will be an unusual
match for this country, because of the
style of target, the distance, the count and
the number of shots. Bach competitor will
fire 120 shots, equally divided among the
standing, kneeling and prone positions. They
will be flred In strings of ten shots each
without Interruption and ten sighting shots
will be allowed in each position. Another
rule of Interest In this match Is that after
ten shots the target will be taken down and
preserved as a proof in case of discussion.

Will Embody Recommendations In
Ordinance to Be Presented to the
" Council Today, Authorizing:
Calling; of Special Election.
Issuance of bonds not to exceed $2,000,
000 for the purpose of constructing i
bridge across the Willamette River, from
Broadway and Larrabee streets to 8ixth
and Irving streets, and the calling of
special election In order to submit the
proposition to the people, were authorlied
yesterday afternoon at a meeting of the
special committee of the City Council
The committee will submit an ordinance
to that effect to the Council for approval
The bridge authorised by this special
committee is of the type recommended by-
Engineer Modjeskl, who was employed
by the Council to Investigate and report
on the most available means of bridging
the river. Although the ordinance au
thorizee the issuance of the bonds to the
amount of $2,000,000, Engineer Modjeski's
estimate did not exceed $1,500,000, and It
Is believed the construction of the bridge
will not exceed that sum.
The ordinance authorizing the calling
of a special election for the purpose of
submitting to the electors the proposition
of the bond Issue will also be presented to
the Council today. .The date on which the
election will be held was not specified
In the ordinance.
The bridge ordinance, after authorising
the issuance of the bonds, authorises the
Executive Board of the city to construct
a bridge with appropriate approaches and
terminals and with a clearance of not
less than 65 feet above high water and not
less than 96.13 feet above low water.
The bridge will begin on the east side
from Broadway street, at or near its in
tersection with Ijarrabee street, and fol
lowing the line of Broadway exanded in
a westerly direction in its present course
will cross the river to a poir.t at or near
the line of Broadway's Intersection with
Seventh street on the west Bide of the
river: thence the bridge shall extend in
a southerly and easterly direction to a
point at or near the Intersection of Sixth
and Flanders streets.
The location of the west approach to the
bridge, however, according to the pro
visions of the ordinance, is to be subject
to such modifications and changes as
may be deemed expedient.
The plans for the bridge have met with
the approval of the Federal authorities
and will be high enough to permit the
on the positive guarantee
that.if it dbes not give sat
isfaction we will return the
entire amount of money paid
us for it.
