Troubles for the Vnltrd nmiwnvs are
multiplying, out of alleged breaches of
faith with the Multnomah County Court
residents and propert y-owners of I.inn
fm and persons who claim station con
cessions from the rallway rompnnv for
grants of right of way. The company
has refused to give a B-cont fare to
I-innton and has otherwise failed to
keep its franchise agreement with the
oimty court in restoring the St.

which it has greatly damaged.
It Is also ignoring station agree

I.lnnton folk are all torn up over the
matter riiey point out thnt their main

and that the company has ignored their
complaints; that the station Is ln an
out-of-the-way place and that the com

an order of the Railroad Commission

they are victims of numerous incivili
ties at the hands of the company's men.
The company, on its side, has prom
sed to put the roads it has damaged
in good condition: it contends that its
franchise requires It to charge not more
than 6 cents fare "between" the City of
and the Town of Linnton

TRAFFIC RRKAKS RECORDS
Kimrmons Amount or Passenger
Business Handled Through City. .
Passenger traffic both local and trans

business handled exceeded that during
the Lewis and Clark Exposition, when
the previous high record was established

known that all previous records have

business on the Shasta route of the
Southern Paclnc. It exceeds all former

Southern Paclnc in the operation of Its
Shasta Limited is handling daily BOO

to Portland. The movement of passen
gers from this city south, via San Fran
cisco. I.s not as heavy, but it exceeds all
The same activity is reported bv the
Hill lines. It Is admitted that the heavy
travel Is due in part to the Alaska-. u-kon-Paeliio
Exposition, hut the figures as
to local passenger business bear out the
reports that the volume of passenger
business was never heavier. The accom
modations of prartica!ly every Northern
Pacific train operating between. Portland
and Seattle are exhausted, and It is not
unusual for reservations to be made days
With the advent of the vacation sea
son, which opened up actively yesterday,
local passenger business will experience
a substantial increase during the ensuing
two months. Travel to the beach resorts
promises to surpass ail previous marks.
SELLWDOD GETS OFFICE
SIBPOSTOFFICE IS RESTORED.
O. H. Wallberg Will Have Charge of
Station, Which Is to Be
Opened on August I.

be In charge of O. H. Wallberg as super

the Sellwood Board of Trade, yesterday
received a telegram from Senator George
Fl Chamberlain from Washington an
nouncing that the order for the restora
tion of the office had been Issued and
would go Into effect August 1.
Three years ago the suhpostoffice was
removed from Sellwood to the Brooklyn
office on Mllwaukie street. nearly
two miles away, and mail has been de
livered from there ever since, with its
attendant delays. There will be three car
riers to start with, but provision will
be made by Mr. Wallberg for an addi
tional carrier. Mr. Donaugh said yester
day that the restoration of the office is
a great gain for that suburb, as the de
livery of the mall from the Brooklyn
station has never been entirely satisfac
tory, owing to delays in getting the mall
from so great a distance. Mail deposited
ln the boxes in Sellwood at 4 P. M. after
the carriers have made their first round
ln the afternoon lays over until 12 o'clock
the next day and on Saturday letters
remain ln the boxes until Monday. Res
toration of the office means that this
delay will be done away with, besides
business men of Sellwood may have their
lock boxes and get their mall Sunday.
The new suhpostoffice will be located In
a room in the bank building on East
Thirteenth street and Umatilla avenue,
where it will be convenient for the public.
Mr. Wallberg. appointed superintendent
of the office, has been a resident of Sell
wood for 21 years, and his appointment
seems to give general satisfaction. It was
through the efforts of the Sellwood Board
of Trade and the assistance of Postmaster
"Young that the office will be restored.

ANDREW KAN'S LIFE STORY
Says Chinese May Be Converted to
Christianity and Be Sincere.
T heTi,15, June S0 (To the Editor.)
I beg to allow me the nnir. ,,,., . '
?of,ry,I"nlon and ln,wer yur editorial'
the Chinese, or Oriental people cannot be
minVderd X ,r"hrlsanlty. forP the Oriental
mind and spirit are as God or nature made
them, or all professions of conversion are
tor temporary purposes with calculated ad
vantage and so on. I must admit it 1.
very true in some Instances appear as mis
directed or misguided by Its management on
one side while on the opposite side the term
heathens very easily can be understood
mostly away from home or call helpless
people It is very natural they cannot help
themselves or the respect of self control.
This Is not all the Chinaman to be blamed
but the stronger side should be more care
ful to keep the teachers well behaved and
act religiously toward them. The Church
and Mission Is not supposed to be held re
sponsible for any Indecent thing that oc
curs with a person or persons either Chinese
or any other nationality should be dis
graced. It is like thU If anyone got hurt by
Jumping otr the train while it was running
at great speed he has himself to look out
for. I am of the opinion it Is far better for
a Chinese man with a white woman as re
ligious teacher than for those young people
who spend their time ln public dance halls.
Mr. Editor ought to take a trip to the
Orient and Investigate more thoroughly
Chinese converts ln their own country and
learn how much faith they have to em
brace Christianity and believe ln our Lord
Jeaus Christ as their Saviour. I know hun
dreds of my Chinese christian friends, es
pecially those In OMna, who work volun
tarily among their own people following our
Master's teachings like all the apostles to
preach the Gospel to all creatures, and bap
tizing them in the name of the Father, Son
and Holy Ghost. Most all the large town,
and villages in the province, of Canton they
have goBpel meeting by the natives. Do
they have white women there? Certainly
All professions of conversion are for tem
porary purposes with calculated advan
tage. Now, take for example of one. I
have been converted to the Episcopal
Church since 1877. After my conversion
I rave been working hard for my honest
living before I started ln the commercial
world with a few hundred dollar, capital.
I worked hard and fought with the world
like a decisive battle, on every ground. I
supported my church and mission and I
preached many years in the mission and
converted many with Christian Influence. I
thank the Lord I did not try to hide away
the talents the Lord gave me but used them
with the best of my knowledge and
with great success, always remembering
what St. Paul says: "Herein do I exercise
myself to have alway. a conscience void of
offense toward God and toward man." Yet
I was much urged by Christian brethren
and friends to go back and help the Chris
tian work among our own people. This 1.
to .how Mr. Editor makes a mistake of
Judgment sometimes like the so-called
Further. I will say a few line. more,
which I believe that the Kingdom of Heaven
Is nearer to Chinamen than Infidel, of other
nationality in the world. Chinamen, as well
as others, need to join with the Salvation
Army and not be ashamed to say loud
hallelujahs and praise the Lord. There Is
nothing more beautiful than Christ's doc
trine, which teaches us not to be selfish.
"Greater love hath no man than this, that
a man lay down his life for his friend."

New Member of Water Board Favors
Immediate Increase of Storage
Immediate construction of two large
reservoirs at Mount Tabor will be the
first work undertaken by the Water
Board. If Theodore B. Wilcox has his
way about it. He so expressed himself
at a meeting of the Water Board, held
yesterday morning, and at which he
attended for the first time ln his offi
cial capacity. He was named for the
vacancy made a week ago by the resig
nation of Dr. C. H. Raffety, qualified at
10 A. M. yesterday and entered upon his
duties at once. He will probably be
chairman of the Board, or at least will
direct Its affairs very largely, and he
took a decided stand for quick dispatch
of business by the Board. Both he and
Mayor Simon, who presided, expressed
a doubt as to the wisdom of Installing
a complete meter system, and this mat
ter will be considered very thoroughly
by them before July 12, the date upon
which bids for 6000 meters will be opened.
James D. Hart and Judge G. W. Allen,
appointees of ex-Mayor Lane, called upon
Mayor Simon just before the meeting of
the Board yesterday morning and ten
dered their resignations. The Mayor has
not accepted them as yet. R. B. Lam

he will remain with the Board. It is

neglected, will soon cause much pain
-na aistress. Pretty nearly every dis
ease that afflicts humanity Is largely
due to Indigestion; at least. Indiges
tion Is the beginning of the trouble.
The only way to restore health Is to
remove indigestion with Kodol. Every
tablespoonful digests 2 pounds of
food. Everyone knows that people
must eat to live, and if they would eat
plain food ln moderation, there would
be little need for doctors and drug
Stores; but all of us occasionally, and
many of . us constantly, eat not only
too much, but swallow rich food that
the stomach cannot digest.
The food ferments, gas fills the
stomach, and undigested lumps of food
harden and the lining of the stomach
becomes inflamed. That's where chronic
and nervous dyspepsia comes in. Now
what Is to be done? Simply this
give the stomach rest; help it to do
Its work. The only sure way is Kodol.
This Is true because Kodol Is the only
preparation that supplies the same di
gestive juices that are found ln a
healthy, vigorous stomach. Just as
soon as Kodol goes down to the undi
gested food, lt starts proper digestion
at once and away go the distress and
pain. Our Guarantee: Get a dollar
"i6 Kodoj. If you are not bene
fitedthe druggist will at once return
your money. Don't hesitate; any drug
gist will sell you Kodol on these
terms. The dollar bottle contains 2V
times as much as the 50c bottle. Kodol
Is prepared ln the laboratories of R c
