his remarks, however, at some stated
time and then let a vote be taken. Fulton
replied that he could not limit himself:
that, if he once undertook a statement of

Republican Senators intervened at this

cannot be confirmed unless Fulton gives

PETALUMA. Cal., March 2. The city
trustees put the lid on this town today,
t least so far as Sunday is concerned,
by the adoption of an ordinance which
ordered all saloons closed from midnight
Saturday until Monday morning, and pro
hibiting the playing of phonographs and
"other noisemaking machines," on the
Sabbath. A proposal that the theaters
be closed on Sunday was voted down.
The passage of the new blue law fol

license, and vainly searching her sleep

The Walpoles said that Miss Schoelta
is a friend of theirs, and had only taken
a room at the apartment-house the night
before the raid. "Our case was perhaps
more aggravated, than a number of other
outrages which that outfit has been pull

body seems to care to come to the front.
That is Just what we Intend to do. We
don't care so much for ourselvea, for I
have been used to some pretty rouyii
knocks in my days, but I am going to
find out Just how much protection the
average law-abiding citizen of Portland
has under this 'moral squad' administra

particularly. He is only a pliant tool
of the administration. It Is the dis
graceful system that I want to attack.
"If we proceedd criminally against
Kienlen we probably would not get any

we would have his bondsmen to. tight. I
am dubious as to what satisfaction we
would get. if we appealed to the Mayor
and the Police Commission. It doesn't
look as if a person could hope for much
comfort from either Mayor Lane or Tom

And ever since GREGORY HEIGHTS was first placed jipon the market, they

to their senses. They are beginning to realize the fallacy of paying rent for a
place that they might easily own. GREGORY has made it possible for more
wage-earners to purchase their own homes than any other man who ever came
to Portland. By his method of placing GREGORY HEIGHTS on the market
at a small expense, eliminating expensive selling, he has been able to sell lots
in GREGORY HEIGHTS for as low as $100, only $5 down and $2.50 per
month, or a home, built and ready to occupy for as little as $10 a month.
With GREGORY HEIGHTS the best located, most accessible and highest point
