views that coincide only In part with
those of Mr. Farewell. According In Mr.
Farewell the only counties in the state
that will be affected by the Home Rule
amendment as soon as It becomes oper

Josephine ar.d Wallowa. These coun
ties have ail apparently jtone "dry."

ties, where no local option election waa
held, the Incorporated cities must re

I"ry counties that votod "wet" may
dispense liquor without waiting for
the amendment to be proolalmed. These
counties are Crook. Gilliam. Klamath.
Malheur. Morrow. Pollc. Sherman. Til
lamook. tTmatllla and Union.
Opinions on I .aw Differ.
There Is a wide diversity or opinion
concerning the meaning of the Home
Rule amendment. Attorney-General
Crawford is preparing an opinion on
the measure, which will be finished In
a day or two. Other attorneys, when
asked for an opinion, would not dis
cass the bill offhand and asked time
to read it over and compare the amend
ment with the provisions of the pres
ent local option law.

Ixvral Option law- Modified.
"I can see nothing complicated about
the amendment." aald Mr. Farewell.
"It simply modifies the local option law
cow in force only to the extent that
a rural vote ahall not make a city dry
asainst the will of the residents of the
city. The home rule bill haa even writ
ten the present local option law Into
the constitution of the state with this
slight modification.
"For Illustration, ten 'dry counties,
according to returns, have gone 'et
They are "wef under the present local
option Uw and the amendment has
nothing to do with their present
status. The counties that have been
dry- and voted 'wef are Crook. Gll
llnnu Klamath. Malheur. Morrow. Polk.
Sherman. Tillamook. Umatilla and
Vnlon. Cities In those counties that
voted wef are allowed saloons Just
the same aa If there had been no home
rule bill.
"Counties such as Yamhill. Benton
and Lane, where no local option elec
tions were held at the recent elec
tions and are 'dry' will remain 'dry
under the preaent local option law for
two years. The present local option
law la peculiar. If acounty Is voted
"dry" an election cannot be held for
two years, but If It la voted -wet" an
election may be held each year. Be
cause no local option election waa held
In these counties at the recent elc
tlon the local option law will keep
cities In those counties "dry" for two
Outside Vote Not Hindlns.
"In Linn. Douglas. Hood River. Jose
phine and Wallowa Counties the situ
ation Is different and they present the
only cases where the provisions of the
home rule bill will really become op
erative. Cities that voted wet' In
these counties, when the home rule
amendment becomes effective, will
have the right to sell liquor. They will
-' not be bound by the rural or the out
alde vote. This Is the object of the
home rule amendment and nothing
more. There Is nothing confusing
about the measure. It means Just what
It says that Is. to give eaoh city a
rlcht to govern Itself so long aa that
government la consistent with the lo
cal option law and the erlnlmal laws
of the state."
J. R. Kcodell. superintendent of the
Oregon Anti-Saloon Lea (rue. aald:
"The home-rule amendment Is the
greatest monstrosity ever seen In Ore
gon legislation. It first throws the state
wide open to the sale of liquor and then
It closes It up tighter than ever before.
It has written the present local option
laws Into the constitution, but In doing
so. K has brought on two extremes that
will not be satisfactory to the extrem-L-t
on either side of the liquor ques
tion. It does not help the man who
really wants to clean up. It opens and
then ejhuts the door to the liquor traf
fic. It cannot be satisfactory to either
Cities Left Without Laws.
The counties that .voted 'wet' under
the present local option laws are 'wet'
without the home-rule bill and will re
main so until they are voted 'dry' "under
the local option law. But when the
home-rule amendment la declared
adopted there will be no law to govern
the sule of liquor In cities In these 'wef
counties unle.-w the city councils adopt
ordinances prior to the adoption of the
constitutional amendment. In the "dry'
counties that contain cities that voted
wet.' the cities must remain 'dry' until
the amendment is a part of tlie constitu
tion and then they must hold an elec
tion and vote on the que-tIon before they
mar sell liquor. Local option law In
(""dry" countl. that did not vote on the
qurKlun of local option at tTTe recent
election, will remain in force until an
other election is held.
"I hope something can be done with
the home-rule Mil to clan up tlio liquor
traffic, but I douht It. The men behind
it will soon OikI tiiey have a big flcht on
their liands. They will be caught be
tween the tmo extremists, the law can
not be satisfactory to either the radical
prohibition int or the advocate of the
saloon without restraint. I hope they
may be able to make something out of it
but I can't ere how."
Cellars Kctlves Ordinance.
Councilman G.. B. Cellars has resur
rected a liquor license ordinance he In
troduced nearly a year sko thnt has
been pigeonholed.
"The ordinance, was prepared by ex-
City Attorney Kavanaugh and myself
about a year ago." said Sir. cellars last
night, "and hns nothing to do with the
Home Rule Association or the outcome
of the hint election. The ordinance wns
prepared to regulate the saloona bet
ter. It was turned down by the Council
once and presented attain In a modified
form. City Attorney Grant has approved
it and I have submitted It to Mayor Si
mon. There are now 14 ordinances gov
erning the sale of liquor and my ordi
nance repeals all of these and places
the, resulation of the liquor traffic under
one ordinance. The Mayor has approved
this policy of having one ordinance In
stead of 14 to cover the saloons. The or
dinance raises the license from ISOO to
Jiotiii. doe away with free lunch and
limita the number of saloons In the city
to the present number." '
Councilman Frank E. Watklns has also
prepared a liquor license ordinance.
Neither the Greater Oregon Home Rule
Association nor the Liquor Dealers' As
sociation has submitted or authorized
an ordinance governing the sale of liquor
In Portland or any other city In Ore
gon. The liquor dealers have virtually
loft the regulation of the liquor traffic
in the. hands of the Home Rule Associa
tion and the Home Rule Association will
take no action until a conference of the
advisory board this week and probably a
convention of the Mayors of the cities
of Oregon Is held to discuss the ques-tlon.

Animals to Be Watched for Signs of
Dread Diseases Pasteur Tr'eat-
, ment Is Wanted.
State Veterinarian Lytle last night
brought two dogs and a pig that were
bitten by the same coyote that bit little
John Bosley. In Wallowa County last
week, to Portland to determine If the
animals have hydrophobia. The Bosley
boy. who was hurried to Portland im
mediately after the attack, was dis
charged from St. Vincents Hospital
yesterday. His wounds have healed,
but he will remain in Portland for two
months to await developments.
Since last Summer Dr. Calvin 8.
White, Secretary of the State Board of
Health, has been receiving communica
tions from Wallowa County and East
ern Oregon to the effect that the coy
otes had gone mad and that dogs and
pigs they had bitten exhibited symp
toms of hydrophobia. One letter told
of a gang of farm bands having been
attacked by a pig. As soon as the
animals showed symptoms of rabies
they were killed.
At noon on November 3. while school
children were playing In the yard, a
coyote came down the road close to the
schoolhouse. Knowing the shy dis
position of the coyote the teacher did
not object to the children chasing it.
The animal ran Into a farmyard, started
after several grown persons, snapped
two dogs and a pig. By this time one
of the men had gone for a gun and the
children were frightetned. Little John
Bosley was standing In the middle ot
the lane- The coyote made for him and
bit him through the cheek, tearing
three teeth out. and hit him over the
eye. badly lacerating the eyelids and
forehead. It then ran Into a field pur
sued by the men. The animal turned
on them, and within 100 feet of one
man. was shot and killed.
There Is no Pasteur treatment closer
than Washington, D. C. and It Is kept
by the Public Health and Marine Hos
pital Service. The boy has been
treated at the hospital but no Pasteur
serum will be sent until there Is a
pronounced case of rabies.
The animals Dr. Lytle has brought to
Portland will be watched, and If they
show symptoms of hydrophobia they
will be killed and serum taken from
their spinal cord will be Injected Into a
rabbit In this way the case w... be
developed. The brains of the animals
will also be examined.
Dr. White has arranged with the ,
Public Health and Marine Hospital j
at once. If the -animals have hydro
phobia. "The disease is an animal disease."
said Dr. White, "and the period of In
cubation is much shorter than In a
human being. It will take from two
weeks to 40 days to determine If the
dogs and pig have hydrophobia. That
will give us time to treat the Bosley
boy. The Pasteur treatment is pre
pared In Washing-ton and will be
shipped from day to day. if we need It."

Trouble Breaks Out Behind Scenes
at Lyric Theater.
An eruption that has1 been smouldering
behind the scenes at the Lyric Theater
for some time broke out yesterday after
noon and by nightfall the following situa
tion was outlined:
En Dillon and Will King, comedians
with the Armstrong Musical Comedy
Company, gave the professional two
weeks' notice of their withdrawal from
the company.
Edward Armstrong, manager of the
Armstrong Musical Comedy Company,
was served with the professional notice
by Keating & Flood, proprietors of the
Lyric, to hunt another location.
Dillon and Kinjr were imemdiately re
tained by Keating & Flood as leading
comedians In a company they will at
once begin organizing to take the place
of the Armstrong Musical Comedy Com
pany. It has been known for several weeks
that things were not running smoothly
in the Armstrong Musical Comedy Com-
pany. The break yesterday, although
anticipated, was not expected so soon.
"Things have not been as pleasant aa
they might have been," said Dan Flood
last night. "Today Armstrong took
away part of the company, leaving us
only eight chorus girls. He also refused
to bill Dillon and King for this weok.

the company ho took away. The only
solution of the problem that has been
confronting us was for us to run our

Armstrong left with his company for
Vancouver, Wash., yesterday evening,
