New Railway Terminals and
Widening of Burnside
Street Are Schemes.
Members of Civic Improvement
League Much Impressed With
Outlines of Changes Which
Will Beautify Portland.'
Having in mind "the city beautiful'
combined with the commercial and int
dustrial interests of Portland and ltsr fa
cilities for transportation and thorough
fares for traffic, the executive committee
of the Civic Improvement League yester
day afternoon directed E. H. Bennett.
civic architect to prepare plans in detail
for railwy terminal yards, a new union
station and widening of Burnside
The decision was reached after Mr.
Bennett had explained five schemes for
the development of a greater Portland to
the committee and other members of the
Civic Improvement League at the Com
mercial Club, and a discussion of the sub
ject as presented by the civic architect.
The detail plans are to be submittted
to the League September 15. In addi
tion to the Bpeciilc instructions, Mr. Ben
nett was instructed to continue his study
of a greater Portland and submit more
drawings and suggesctions in conformity
with the plans - outlined in his general
New Station Planned.
The union station contemplates passen
ger terminal facilities, accessible to the
East Side In conjunction with the pro
posed Broadway bridge, to the north of
the present station. The plan of Mr.
Bennett provides for overhead passenger
traffic, or elevated streets in the vicinity
of the station, avoiding grade crossings
of railway tracks near the union stations
on the west side of the Willamette River,
and bringing traffic from the east side
over the Broadway bridge at grade with
plans for the West Side.
The freight terminals, according to the
plans, are to be developed on the penin
sula, east of the Willamette River and
near the Columbia, where railroads en
tering Portland already converge and
Swift & Company has established its
plant as the nucleus of a future packing
The widening of Burnside street to 100
feet, which has already been considered
a necesssity because of that natural and
congested traffic from the East Bids, is
recommended an Imperative to make am
ple provision for a greater Portland.
Krom Burnside street the traffic will be
diffused through the regular 80-fOet
Street to Be Widened.
Mr. Bennett's plan for access to tne
Portland of the future provides for the
widening of Burnside street as recom
mended, and probably Madison or an
other street south of Burnside to 100
The plan for a terminal station in con
Junction with the building of the Broad
way bridge, providing for traffic facili
ties from the East Side to conform with
the proposed elevated street grade for
the West Side, was adopted, and Mr.
Bennett will proceed with more detailed
plans, in consultation with the railway
A plan, supplementary to the Olmsted
plan for parks and boulevards, which
has been adopted by Portland, provides
for additional park areas, including
Council Crest. . To further emphasize
the desire to have Council Crest for a
public park, the . executive committee
adopted a resolution addressed to the
Mayor and Park Board, requesting the
Immediate acquisition of that picturesque
spot, before prices Increase. The supple
mentary plan provides for boulevards
along the east side of the Willamette
River, south of the business district, and
skirting the hills in continuation of Kill
lngsworth avenue.
Factories to Go North.
Mr. Bennett said the manufacturing in
dustries on the river south of Burnside
street were bound to drift north, as the
city grows, leaving that district for res
idences. To further facilitate traffic, Mr. Ben
nett exhibited plans . for tunnels under
the Willamette river, connecting the Job
bing district of the West Side with the
Freight terminals of the East.
The drawings were nothing more
than rough sketches of a greater Port
land, designed to meet the needs of a
city of more than 1,000,000 population,
which Mr. Bennett predicted would be
the case in another generation.
The representative business men who
attended the meeting were enthusiastic
over the report and the Illustrations
and promptly decided to adopt two of
the plans, the railway terminal facili
ties and Broadway bridge and the
widening of Burnside street, without
further discussion. These improve
ments were regarded as immediate
Widening Is Necessary.
The widening of Burnside street in
the near future was considered advis
able before large buildings are erected
and the price of property increases to
such an extent that it will cost many
millions to carry out the needed scheme.
Other plans suggested by the expert
will be taken up when the detail plans
of the terminal station and widening of
tsurnsiae street are considered by the
League, and will be presented in a more
elaborate form.
As a further acknowledgment and
appreciation of the work of the league,
a contribution of $500 from the Failing
estate was received.
A publicity committee, composed of
Hugh Hume, chairman. William Wood
ward and Postmaster Charles Merrick,
was. appointed to carry on a campaign
of publicity to aid the work of the
Republicans Urged to Rally Around
Emblem and Party.
With appropriate ceremonies, National
Flag day was celebrated Tuesday night by
the Portland Republican club, in the
headquarters at the Cornelius Hotel. M.
L. Bowman sang a solo, "The Flag With
out a Stain." Patriotic speeches and
songs were given until a late hour.
Judge M. C. George, president of the
club and chairman of the State Repub
lican Central Committee, after every
body had been made acquainted, in a few
brief remarks alluded to the significance
of the day. He talked of the flag and
what it meant.
Gradually Judge George came down to
the Republican party and said it stood
for the very principles which the flag
symbolized. He was wildly cheered
"Thp RennbllrATiM f drturnn mnnt star
together," he said. "We are approach-
ing a crisis in the history of the party
in this' state and it is up to the workers
to rally around the old flag and fight for
Republican principles."
Speaker after speaker was called upon
and sentiments on the significance of the
day were mingled with talk of the pros
pects for Republican success in the ap
proaching elections. This centered in
the speech of Judge William M. Cake,
former chairman of the state committee,
wb.o declared the disturbing elements in
the party, and those populists flying un
der false banners, should be figuratively
kicked out.
"It is not the Democrats we are fight
ing," he said. "It is within our own
ranks that the brunt of the battle must
take place. If four-fifths of the Repub
lican party should be wiped out, we
still would have a good chance to de
feat the Democrats.
"The Republicans must go to the as
sembly. It will be a good thing for
the county and state and a good thing
for the Republican party. He "must
fight for a representative form of gov
ernment and fight hard."
The speech of Richard Deich was
unique. Mr. Deich visited the public
library yesterday afternoon, he said, and
digging through political history of Ore
gon found some interesting data.
"In 1896," he said, "I found where one
W. S. U'Ren had written a letter call
ing on all good Democrats to become
Independents. That was their only
charce, he said. Now he claims to be a
Republican. We should get rid of such
two-faced individuals in the party."
Other enthusiastic addresses were made
until the celebration began to take on
the appearance ' of an old-time Repub
lican rally. Among those who spoke
were J. F. Singer, Judge J. W. Bell,
Jimmie Kertchen, S. A. Starr, E. X.
Taggart and others.
It was a general consensus of opin
ion that the assembly will be a great
success as it was last year in the mu
nicipal election.

No Chance of Enactment of Bill
Asking Jewish Pale Abolition.
ST. PETERSBURG, June 15. The bill
providing for the abolition of the
Jewish pale, which has been introduced
in the Duma, has no chance of enaot
merit. Its Introduction, however, is
of importance, as it shows the strength
of the element which favors giving the
Jews the right of unrestricted resi
dence in Russia. It is signed by 165
members of the opposition, one-third of
the total membership.
After some discussion, the measure
will be shelved, along with the bill for
the abolition of the death penalty, and
similar proposed legislation.
Why Capital Should Be
" Changed to New Site.
Process-Server Says He Was Threat
ened With Kicking by Head of
. State Government Officials
Confident of Success.
OKLAHOMA CITY. Okla.. June 15.
Deputy United States Marshal Chris
Madsen, of Guthrie, last night served a
citation on Governor Haskell, summoning
him to appear in the Federal Court Fri
day 'to show cause why he should attempt
to remove the state capltol to Oklahoma
Monday night Deputy United States
Marshal Heck Thomas was repulsed by
the Governor when he attempted to
serve papers on him. The Governor had
snatched a paper from the hands of
Sheriff Mahoney, of Logan County.
"This is not Mahoney," said Thomas.
"This is the Governor of Oklahoma, I
would have you know," said Haskell.
The subpena was taken away un
served, after the Governor had turned
his back on the officer.
A more sensational version of the In
cident is given by Deputy Thomas.
Thomas says that Governor Haskell,
when informed by Deputy Marshal
Jacobson that he had papers from the
Federal Court for him, replied:
"I don't care who you are; I am the
Governor of Oklahoma. Get .out of here
or I will kick you downstairs." "
They were then in the second story of
a hotel, where Governor Haskell has his
Oklahoma City headquarters. Jacob
son walked down the stairs.
Quarters for all state officers and
boards have been secured in Oklahoma
City, and they will be occupied as soon
as the records, books and fixtures of the
offices in Guthrie can be moved here.
. Governor Haskell and his attorneys
are confident that neither the state nor
Federal injunction will hold. In the
meantime, temporary blanks, books and
stationery are being used.
The action of Guthrie officers in
searching Labor Commissioner Charles
Daug-herty created no little censure
among the state officers here, and the
Mayor of Guthrie has been called up for
an apology.
Adjutant General Canton, of the Okla
homa National Guard, conferred with
Governor Haskell yesterday. He de
clared that it any records are needed,
it was a matter of a word for the
Guard to get them.
All State Officials Except Governor
and Secretary in Guthrie.
GUTHRIE Okla., . June 15. Develop
ments in the capitol removal fight be
came more acute at Guthria today with
the return here of practically all the state
officials, save Governor Haskell and Sec
retary of State Cross. The officials cam
back for the argument on the demurrer
to the suit in the District Court to eit
Join the removal of the capital.
Governor Haskell and Secretary of
State Cross are transacting official busi
ness under the original state seal of Ok
lahoma City, while Assistant Secretary of
State Leo Meyer has a duplicate seal and
is transacting official business in Guth
rie. The Supreme Court and other depart
ments of state are proceeding with their
various duties as if a capitol removal
election had not been held. The Republi
can state committee this morning recog
nized the two capitals by filing refer
endum petitions at both Guthrie an J Ok
lahoma City. Guards are stationed about
the Guthrie Statehouse to prevent the
removal of records or other state prop
erty. Labor Commissioner Daugherty was
searched this morning for state pepers
before leaving the city.
Despite these steps taken by the fac
tion opposed to removal, Leo Meyer, As
sistant Secretary of State, announced to
day that all state books and records
would be moved to Oklahoma City upon
completion of places for their reception.

COMO, Italy, June 15. Police clews
pointing to Porter Charlton as the mur
derer of his wife now have led to a sys
tematic search for Charlton himself,
and the authorities at all the ports have
been directed, to .watch for him.
Meanwhile the theory that Charlton
may have been murdered, too, has not
been abandoned wholly, and the lake is

Nothing was discovered today to give
the slightest clew to the whereabouts
of the missing man, or to strengthen
the theory that he also was murdered.
AH kinds of stories have been brought
to the police, but they lack accuracy,
and Investigation has shown many to be
pure fabrications.
It has ' been learned that Charlton
wrote on June 6 to the Russian, Spola
toff, who is under arrest, that he and
his wife were leaving for the Riviera.
On that afternoon he went to the post
office and made inquries with reference
to the steamers leaving for America.

without result.
