GRADUATES ARE ACTIVE
Aspirants for Public Office Are
Coming to Fore.
Activity of aspirants for state offices,
aside from Governor, about which very
littla has been said, la now more
marked. There has been, a conspicuous
absence of candidates for Attorney
General. State Treasurer and Supreme
Court Judges. This year the terms of
four judges expire. They are: Justices
Frank A. Moore. Will R. King. W. T.
Slater and Thomas A. McBride. Justice
Robert Kakin holds over until January
Justices King and Slater are Demo
crats, appointed by Governor Chamber
lain when the Legislature Increased the
number of Justices on the Supreme
Bench. Both will be candidates to suc
ceed themselves. They probably will
not have any opposition in their own
party. Circuit Judge W. N. Gatens, of
this city, who also owes his appoint
ment to Senator Chamberlain while
Governor, will be a candidate to succeed
Justices Moore and McBride will be
candidates for the Republican nomina
tions. In addition, it is understood four
circuit judges of the state will seek the
higher court toga. They are Judges
Lawrence T. Harris, of the second judi
cial district at Eugene; George H. Bur
nett, of the third district at Salem; C. TJ.
(lantprhpin nf tho fniirfi Hiatri. a-
Portland, and H. J. Bean, of the sixth
district at Pendleton.
Attorney-General M. Crawford will
seek re-election. 1 Political gossipers say
he will have opposition in A. C. Hough,
of Grants Pass; State Senator J. N. Hart,
of Baker City, arid W. H. Wilson, of The
Dalles. Heretofore only Crawford's name
had been mentioned in connection with
George A. Steel, State Treasurer, it is
understood, will not be a candidate for
re-election. Two names have been men
tioned in connection with the post. They
are T. J. Mahoney, of Heppner, a mem
ber of the lower-chouse of the Legislature
last session, and T. C. Taylor, of Pen
dleton, who was president of the State
Senate in the session of 1899.
LIBERATi AGAIN ENJOYED
FAMOCS CORXETIST AND BAND
WELCOMED AT OAKS.
Addition of Opera Singers' X umbers
to Programme Makes Variation
That Is Appreciated.
Fitting was it that the first concert to
be given in the handsome new auditor
ium at the Oaks should be directed by
Signor Allesandro Liberati, the world
renowned bandmaster and cornetist.
Liberati is no stranger to Portland and
needs no introduction as he returns for
a fortnight's engagement. No musician
is better known, no better liked here
than Is this king of cornetists, and he
and his military band outdid themselves
last night. His is truly a concert band
and one of the most efficient and artis
tic musical organizations in the land.
The auditorium at the Oaks was
packed early in the evening in fact, for
an hour before the splendid concert be
gan. On the stage great palms nodded
at either side, -and masses of greenery
and blooming plants formed a border. So
perfect are the acoustics of the audi
torium that the volume of exquisite
sounds reached the listener as if from
one magic instrument.
Like wine, books and friends, Llber
ati's art increases with age as was
clearly demonstrated in his beautiful solo
work last night. His programme blended
most happily the elements of the artis
tic and popular, for his offerings In
cluded selections from Verdi, Mercad
ante, Seidel and Lacome, played with
the smoothness of a great orchestra, as
r well as a cosmopolitan number or two
that brought tapping feet and frequent
interruptions of applause.
An addition to the programme- that
was much appreciated is the introduc
tion of several opera singers. In last
night's programme, the beautiful tenor
voice of D. de Luchi was heard in four
numbers, two of which were encores aft
er an insistent call from a delighted aud
ience. Pleasing, too, were the vocal se
lections from "Riggoletto" and "Lucia"
by four singers. Misses Katherine
Klarer and Deaubry, and Signorl Ce
sare Freddi and G. de Luchi.
Liberati himself is the same gaily de
bonair virtuoso and director.
MURDERER IS NOT SORRY
WORRY . OVER YOUNG WIFE
CONCERNS BOONE'S SLAYER.
Arthur C. Ash, in Cell at Spokane,
Sorry He Did Not Also Kill
SPOKANE, Wash., June 13. (Spe
cial.) "The killing of James Boone
does not worry me in the least. The
only two things in the whole affair
I am sorry for are that I did not also
kill Fred Roland and that my wife has
to suffer this terrible disgrace."
Such was the statement today of
Arthur C. Ash, the confessed mur
derer of James Boone, as he stood in
his cell 'at the county jail. Principals
in the killing of James Boone, a
rancher, who lived five miles east of
Sprague, Wash., Arthur C. Ash, the con
fessed murderer, and Airs. Matlia Boone,
widow of the murdered man, passed a
quiet day. Ash, who confessed to kill
ing Boone on the night of April 29,
displayed more nervousness than at any
time since his arrest.
Despite the fact that his young wife
is the direct cause of his being in
jail on a charge of murder, according
to his own confession, Ash does not
seem to think of himself or what may
become of him. The wife is his
greatest worry. He said: -
"I am not worrying in the least
what they will do 'with me, but what
will become of my little girl (meaning
his wife) is causing me great trouble."
When asked what he was going to
do about counsel. Ash said: "I cannot
employ counsel, as I have no money."
The prisoner during the greater part
of the day engaged himself in writing
down facts about the crime.
BURGLAR TAKES JEWELRY
Thief in Apartment-House Fright

"With the conclusion of the Rose Fes
tival came a lull in the reports of petty
crime that have accompanied the week
of festivities. Only one case of note was
reported to the detective bureau yester
day, a burglary at the Rosefriend apart
ments. Seventh and Jefferson streets.
Saturday night. The apartments of Mrs.
George E. Weaverson were entered and

place and fled without securing any
plunder. He was described to the police
as a man about 5 feet 8 inches tall,
weighing about 160 pounds and wearing

5000 HEAR HOWARD
'Joy Ride on Water Wagon" Is
Subject of Address.
AUDIENCE IS ENTHUSIASTIC
Speaker Says Most Successful Hotels
Have Eliminated Bars Where
Liquor Is Sold Debate to Be
Held on Tuesday Night.
"Joy Ride on the Water Wagon" was
the subject of the address yesterday
afternoon at Hawthorne Park Taber
nacle by Clinton N. Howard, a temper
ance lecturer.. to an enthusiastic audi
ence of 5000 people. Representatives
of the W. O' T. TJ.. the Anti-Saloon
League, state-wide prohibition commit
tee and other organizations occupied
the platform, beside ministers from
many of the East Side churches. J. P.
Miss Marie Brehm, National Presby
terian lecturer, spoke briefly, referring
to the hotels where bars are kept, say
ing that some of the best and most
prosperous hotels in the United States
did not permit the selling of liquor on
After a solo, "Where Is My Wander
ing Boy Tonight," by B. T. Stout, Mr.
Howard was introduced and spoke en
tertainingly for two hours. He as
sailedthe licensed saloon, character
izing it as the father of all crime,
wrong and impurity. He declared that
hotels throughout the United States
were leaving out the liquor bars with
good results to their business. Mr.
Howard held Maine up as an example of
prohibition, declaring that from his
personal knowledge he knew that pro
hibition did prohibit the sale of liquor
in that state. Mr. Howard was .very
witty all the way through his address
and kept the audience in good humor.
At the conclusion he said: "
Alen Lacking in Oregon.
"Here, in Oregon, you have every
thing that can make men and women
happy. You have orchards and flowers.
You have beautiful scenery. You have
beautiful women, but you lack men.
From my knowledge of the conditions
of the Pacific Coast, as compared with
the East, I know that Oregon is to be
the New York of the West, as Port
land is to be the New York, commer
cially, of this coast. Everything points
in that direction. Will you not rally
and make it clean and decent and safe
by making it dry in 1910? If the peo
ple of the churches .will vote as" they
pray, it will be accomplished."
At the conclusion of the address a
large collection was taken to further
the campaign for a dry state.
Rev. Clarence True Wilson announced
that the following committee would
have charge of the proposed temper
ance parade, to be held in Portland in
the near future:
E. T. Johnson, chairman: Mrs. Lucia
F. Additon, Mrs. Ward Swope, Rev. J.
W. Paddack, B. Lee Paget. W. H. War
ren, Mrs. H. W. Stone, I. H. Amos, Rev.
James T. Corby, Rev. H. A. Deck, A. J.
Hundsaker, Dr. George F. Pratt, Dr..
John H. Cudlipp, H. W. Stone, Mrs.
French, Rev. W. G. Eliot. Rev. Mr. Mat
thews, Rev. J. W. Lees, J. J. Ross, C. A.

mittee field a short session and organ
ized. -' E. Holer to Enter Debate.
A mass meeting will be held tonight
in the Central Methodist Church, Fargo
street and Vancouver avenue, at which
Rev. Clarence True Wilson will deliver
the address he made before the Minis
terial Association. "Why Oregon Is Go
ing Dry in 1910."
Tuesday night, E. Hofer, editor of
the Capital Herald, of Salem, and Rev.
Clarence True Wilson will hold a two
hours' debate on "Wll Oregon Benefit
by Prohibition?" in Hawthorne Park
Tabernacle at 8 o'clock.
Miss Marie Brehm lectured yesterday
morning in the Mount Tabor Presbyte
rian Church and last night she ad
dressed a union mass meeting in the
Sunnyside Methodist Church.
Although his voice was wo?n with
the afternoon's effort, Mr. Howard
spoke at Grace Methodist Church last
night on the topic of the afternoon.
"Maine, the first state in the Union
to go joy riding on the water wagon
train," he said, is known country-wide
by the men she has sent to' Congress.
Mr. Howard named among these Will
iam T. Frye. Nelson Dingley and
Charles E. Llttlefield. A member of
the House, he declared, could not name
Oregon's representative without hesita
tion. The reason, he asserted, was that
Oregon failed to send strong men to
Washington, not because she did not
have them, but because she is throt
tled by the liquor interests.
The speaker then went on to say it
was the man from Illinois, "represent
ing the trusts and liquor interests of
that state, who blocked some of Presi
dent Roosevelt's good measures."
"You Oregonians haven't been a dom
inant power in the Nation for one hour
since you became a state," declared Mr.
B0AJ WATCHMAN MISSING
Fellow-Workers Believe That Peter
Smith Was Drowned.
Peter Smith, watchman on board the
steamer Joseph Kellogg, is believed to
have been drowned late last night. Ha
was last seen by other members of the
crew as he was splitting wood on the
deck. When he did not appear for some
time, his companions became uneasy and
at once instituted a search over the boat.
As he had no way of leaving the boat,
it is thought by his companions that he
fell overboard and was drowned before
he could call for help. He is an old
time riverman having been employed on
various steamers on the Willamette and
Columbia rivers for many years.

M'CLELLAN GETS REBUKE
Corruption of Tammany Hall Rule
One of Abuses of Government
That Judge Was Weary of and
Set About to Correct.
NEW YORK, June 13. For the first
time since he assumed office. Mayor
Gaynor granted an interview on his
work and his administration.
He mentioned no names, but never
theless he delivered a stinging rebuke
to George B. McClellan. his predecessor,
and to Tammany Hall.
. His criticism of McClellan was in an--wer
to a question as to what had hfien
the fundamental principles he had
sought to establish in his administra
tion. "Well," said the Mayor, "I suppose
I may say properly enough that I came
here with my mind filled with the de
sire to make the government honest
and intelligent. That was my main
"Just like others, I suppose I was
filled with an implacable hatred" of the
corruption and 1 degradation of the
government which I had seen here for
so many years. I wanted to destroy
that if I could. Every other idea I had
was incidental to t'xlL main one.
"I wanted also to make the admin
istration of the government free from
the control of outsiders, whether poli
ticians or others.
"The political sympathy under which
the government of a city is not con
trolled and run by those elected and
appointed for that purpose but at the
dictation of outside people who con'rjl
them was always detestable to irv
Just look at the contemptible charac

The men were standing at the comer
of East Morrison and East Water streets,
and trie meteor was moving from south
to north. Frank Beatty, Deputy Sheriff,

his attention to it. He also saw the

SEATTLE REAL ESTATE DEALER SAYS
PORTLAND PROPERTY CHEAP
Yesterday I showed MURRAYMEAD to Mr. Herbert V. Perry,
a prominent real estate dealer from the big Sound city, with offices
in the American Bank building.
Mr. Perry came here to see the "Rose Show," and didn't have
an idea in the world of investing in any Portland property.
But a chance to make money on a "deal" is a thing you cannot
ask a real "dyed-in-the-wool" real estate man to miss, and the
chances to make a ' quick turn in MURRAYMEAD looked good
After sizing the situation all up he said, "Why, Mr. Widney,
this property is cheap." I said, "Of course it's cheap; that is
what I told you before we left the office." "Well," he said, "the
trouble with you Portland fellows is that you don't know the value
of your own city property. Why, over in Seattle lots that are half
again as far out, and with nothing lik as good a car service as
you have in MURRAYMEAD, are selling at $100 per front foot."
So, to make a long story short, he reserved two lots, and he
expects to make money on them within 60 days, and I think he will.
Don't you delay in looking MURRAYMEAD over between now
and next Sunday (opening day, next Sunday is), and remember
that MURRAYMEAD will be but eight minutes from the center of
town by way of the new Madison-street bridge.
That improvements consist of cement walks, paved streets, sew
ers, water, etc. ' -
That inside lots are priced from $1700 to $2000, and corners
$2250 to $2650. Terms 20 per cent cash and 2 per cent per month'
at 6 per cent.
Also that the first ten lot purchasers will receive a 10 per cent
discount for a cash purchase, or a $100 discount if purchase is made
