V Act Called "Jumble."
MR. BREWSTER SAYS HE WILL
"I shall not resign, and if neces
sary I'll make an active canpai?n to
hold -my office," -said XV. L. Brew
ster. City Commissioner,' upon his
return to Portland last flight from
Denver. He had learned of the re
call proceedings on the train only a
fjw hours before arriving in Port
land. "I don't think the people of Port
land want to vote public officials out
of office without sufficient reason. I
don't believe they favor a. recall un
less there )s urgent need for It.
'There is no crisis in our city gov
ernment to Justify a recall. I am
prepared to defend my administra
tion In every particular."
Coincident with the definite an
nouncement yesterday that ex-Mayor
Hushlight would be a recall candi
date against Mayor Albee and that Dr.
Geoi-ge .Parrish would be a candidate
ag-ainst Commissioner Dieck. City At
torney Ta Roche issued a legal opinion
In which he says there must be sub
mitted to the vote of the people in the
recall election the direct question of
whether the officials sought to be re
called shall be recalled. Jf the ma
jority of voters lo not vote for the
recall the vote for the various can
didates under the preferential system
will not count.
It had been feared that if a number
of candidates entered the field the vote
would be so split by reason of the
preferential system involving voting
on first, second and third choice, that
the strongest man might not win. It
was feared that under the preferential
system the voters would not pass- di
rectly upon the question of recalling
the officials sought to be recalled.
Recall in Question Korfn.
The opinion of City Attorney La
Ttoche. which has been prepared for
the benefit of City Auditor Barbur,
"who is preparing for the election, holds
there must be submitted on the ballot
the direct questions, "Shall H. R. Al
bee be recalled as Mayor"? and "Shall
Robert G. Dieck be recalled as Com
missioner"? and "Shall William I
JSrewster be, recalled as Commissioner"?
The voters are to vote "yes" or "no"
on each of these questions.
In the case of Mayor Albee, if the
majority vote is against the recall, the
vote . on candidates will count for
naught, even though some candidate
other than Mr. Albee gets the majority
of votes. Majority vote against the re
call means defeat of the recall. The
same applies individually to each of the
Commissioners against whom the re
call is aimed.
Rushlight and Parrish Enter.
Announcement of the candidacy of
ex-Mayor Rushlight had been expected
for several days. It was finally made
yesterday afternoon with the an
nouncement of Dr. George Parrish as a
candidate against Commissioner Dieck.
Both will seek public favor on the pol
icy of economy, fewer laws and other
Mr. Rushlight declared that he had
tried to stave off the recall until next
Spring, believing that the officials
should have at least two years in which
to make good. He says that, inasmuch
as the recall has been brought up at
this time, he wants to get into the race,
lie will commence the circulation of
nominating petitions today.
Dr. Parrish has been a resident of
Portland for about nine vears, having
come here from St. Louis. He says
he has never before held or sought
political position. He and Mr. Rush
light will conduct a campaign" to
gether. The platform of each will be:
"If elected I will, during my term
of office, advocate fewer laws, stricter
enfurcemant. lower taxes, handle the
public money the same as I handle
mine, the office will be open to the
public at all times, regardless of poli
tics, religion or station in life."
Aspirants Noir Five.
The advent of these two into the
race makes a total of live seeking the
positions of Mayor Albee and Com
missioners Dieck and Brewster. The
two seeking election as Mayor are Mr
Rushlight and B. 13. Kennedy, while
those seeking Commissionerships are
AV. A. Leet, H. E. Abry and Dr. Par
rish. It is expected at the City Hall that
an injunction against the recall will be
sought on the ground that it entails
useless expenditure of money R XV
Raymond, of the Manufacturers Asso
ciation, had a conference with City
Attorney La Roche yesterday and an
nounced that he may take the initia
tive in contesting the standing of the
recall amendment. It is said also that
the Civic League and the Non-Partisan
League are considering legal steps
against the proposed recall election.
Opinion Deemed Important.
The opinion of City Attorney La
Roche to the effect that the people
will vote directly for or against the
recall is considered the most important
development since the filing of the re
Granting that the constitutional re
call amendment is a self-executing law
and authorizes, witlrout other legisla
tion. ai election for the recall of the
Mayor and Commissioners, a conclusion
w inch is seriously doubted." said Mr
I-a Roche yesterday, "we find two dis
tinct provisions in the recall amend
ment. "First, this measure provides for the
determination of the question of the
recall of the officer, and. secondlv. if
the electorate determines to recall "him
it then provides that candidates for his
oifice may be nominated and voted
upon at said special election.
"The part of the law which provides
for submission of the question of
whether or not the officer shall be re
called reads: 'If he (referring to the
officer against whom a petition is filed)
Khali not resign within five days after
h!,iPtit,0j; islled a social election
shall be ordered to be held . ., to
determine whether or not the" people
will recall said officer. . PP'e
referring to said officer) shall con
tinue to perform the duties of his of
fice until the result of said special
election shall be officially declareJ."
majority Vote Required.
"Here you have a complete provision
for the submission to the electorate of
the first question, shall they recall the
officer or not? Then follows the second
provision, 'other candidates for the of
fice may be nominated to be voted for
at said special election. The candidate
who shall receive the highest number
of votes shall be deemed elected for
the remainder of the term whether it be
the person against whom the recall pe
tition was filed, or another.'.
"So that at an election for the recall
of the Mayor or one of the Commission
ers a majority of the people may de
cide to recall the officer and in the
election for his successor, if he secures
the needed vote, may succeed himself.
Here you have an apparent contradic
tion, as under the preferential system
of voting it may be possible for a can
didate who is recalled to succeed him
self by a vote less than a majority.
But this is of no great moment when
one reflects that if some other can
didate shall be chosen, he may be
chosen in identically the same man
ner by less than a majority vote.
Act Termed "Jumble."
"If this construction of the law is
inapt and wrong and the preferential
system of voting shall be used, then
you would have the strange spectacle
of recalling an officer simply by elect
ing one of several candidates by pos
sibly a minority "of the total vote cast.
and between the two evils the first
construction is not only the lesser of
them, but seems to be the only, con
struction that the law is capable of,
giving to the words employed in this
act their usual and ordinary value. The
entire amendment seems to have been
hastily and carelessly prepared and is
certainly a Jumble."
Although it had been reported that
Dan Kellaher intended running for
Mayor in case Mr. Rushlight announced
his candidacy, Mr. Kellaher said yester
day he would not enter the race.
"I do not care to mix in a recall cam
paign or election," he said.
Investigation of the records in the
Municipal Civil Service Bureau yester
day revealed the fact that H. E. Abry,
who is a candidate against Commis
sioner Dieck, was in the city service
n tituo as a surveyor, and that he
failed to pass an examination January
25, 106. He served for a few months
in 105 on temporary appointment.. In
the examination in January, 1905, he
failed to pass, receiving a rating of
55.25 per cent. In mathematics he re
ceived only 10 points out of a pos
FIRE WITNESS STRUCK
PLUMBER CALLED FIREBUG RE
SENTS TESTIFIER'S REMARK.
Prosecutor to Charge Assailant 'With
Assault and Battery Burning of
Sax Store Related Asaln.
Internal dissensions in the so-called
local "arson trust" broke into open
hostilities yesterday at the close of the
day's session of court, where Max Al
bert is on trial for arson. Victor Gold
stein, witness for the prosecution, was
attacked in the Courthouse corridor a
few moments after he stepped off the
witness stand, by 13. Lavoff, a plumber,
whom he had accused in his testimony
of being a firebug.
I he plumber stepped up to Gold
stein and asked: "Did you say that I
am a firemaker, too?"
"Yes, I said so," was the reply.
Then the air was full of flyiuir fists
and the witness was struck three times
in the face and knocked down.
Attorney Malarkey asked Goldstein
on cross-examination if h ltnw
Lavoff. "Yes. I know him." reDlied
the witness, "he is a firemaker, too."
They all want to kill me." said Gold
stein to the District Attorney, to whom
he at once showed his wounds. A
warrant charging assault and battery
will be issued for the belligerent
Victor Goldstein formerly was a
friend of Max Albert, the defendant,
in Russia. They came from the same
village. They lived in New York for
four years and, coming to Portland,
they continued friends until last De
cember, fiow they are bitter enemies.
Goldstein says the strained relations
came from the fact that Albert owed
him $100 and refused to pay. He says
Albert wrote to the wife of Goldstein
in Russia, saying her husband was
dead. This indirect revenge, makins:
the wife of an enemy suffer, was re
sented by Goldstein.
While on the stand yesterday lie told.
through an interpreter, what he knew
of the workings of the alleged ring of
firemakers. who are said to be re
sponsible for many fires in this city
during the past two years. He told
over again the history of the Sax fire.
upon which the prosecution of Max Al
bert is based, as it was told to him by
Albert and by others.
On - cross-examination Goldstein
showed he has strong dislikes. Asked
t he had not said certain deroeatorv
things about Albert to Frank Klick,
the witness declared "He is a liar."
The cross-examination sought to de
velop that because of the feeling
against Albert, Goldstein is not a trust
worthy witness and does not tell the
same story twice. .
Adolph Harbeek, a janitor who cares
for buildings adjoining the Sax store.
at 207 First street, testified that he
noticed the fumes of gasoline before
the fire on the night of August 5, 1912.
and shortly thereafter heard the ex

full a little later.

CAPTAIN'S TRIAL SET
Master of A. M. Simpson Is Ac
cused of Negligence.
UNITED STATES PLAINTIFF
Damage Done to Col. P. S. Mlchie Is
Basis or Suit to Be Heard by
I inspectors at Coos Bay Game
cock Sinking to Be Probed.
"Carelessness and " negligence" are
charged against Captain Bendergard,
of the steamer .A. M. Simpson, by
United States Inspectors Edwards and
Fuller and on which they will try the
accused Monday at Marshfield. alleg
ing that he failed to exercise due cau
tion early in the season when his ves
sel collided with the Government
dredge CoL P. S. Michie, which was
anchored inside Coos Bay, damaging
the digger so she had to be brought
to Portland for repairs.
Inspectors Edwards and Fuller will
leave here Sunday on the Geo. W. El
der, accompanied by Arthur Merrill,
clerk of the board. The dredge Michie
is about to be placed in commission
again through the passage of the rivers
and harbors bill and Captain Reed and
others of her crew will be summoned
before the board Monday to testify.
The Simpson proceeded to California
after the collision, as she was out
bound with lumber, and the testimony
of her officers and those of the crew
who were on duty was taken there and
has been forwarded to Inspectors Ed
wards and Fuller.
Meanwhile the Michie was here for
repairs and Captain Reed and his men
testified. After considering all evi
dence the inspectors have preferred
charges. The Simpson was not partic
ularly harmed by the accident, but the
Michie was unable to operate on the
bar without repairs.
Another case on the calendar for the
inspectors is that of the steamer Game
cock, which struck a rock and went
down near Sheridan's , Point, on the
Middle Columbia, last month. She was
raised and towed here for repairs, be
ing now on the ways at the yard of
the Portland Shipbuilding Company.
Her stem and forefoot were carried
away, planking torn off the port" side
a distance of 25 or 30 feet, heavy tim
bering in the hull broken and other
harm done, but at that there is not as
much damage as many supposed would
follow the accident. At an investiga
tion today Captain Zumwalt and offi
cers of the Gamecock are to testify.

speedy steamer Georgiana here and the

from Pensacola on October 3. The
British steamer Knight of the Thistle,
which was listed to proceed here for
grain, has been placed on the berth

under engagement to G. XV. McXear.
It is reported from San Francisco that
the French ships Berengere and Bri

former charters having been cancelled.
All but One German Carrier Dropped
From Grain Fleet En Koute.
Showing how vessels of neutral na
tions are benefiting from the European
disturbance in the Northwest wheat
trade is the fact on the list of vessels
en route for grain, revised monthly by
the Merchants' Exchange, are 13 Nor
wegian vessels, while there are 18
British carriers, though the latter
usually outnumber Norwegians two to
one. Germany has a large fleet bound
here, as a rule, but as so many char
ters have been canceled, there is only
one lone German coming, the Adolphus
Vinnen, which sailed from Port Natal
June 20. There are three French car
riers, one each of the Russian. Danish
and Dutch flag, and two Belgians.
That the tonnage situation "has
turned attention to available American
carriers is indicated by a report cur
rent the past few days that negotia
tions have been under way to charter
the American ship Wm. P. Frye. now
at Bremerton, discharging coal loaded
at Baltimore, and the American ship
Dirigo, which reached Newport News
from Ipswich September 21 and loads
for this Coast. They .are wanted to

IF KIDNEYS ACT
BAD TAKE SALTS
Says Backache Is Sign You Have
Been Eating Too Much
When you wake up with backache
and dull misery in the kidney region it
general y means you have been eating
too much meat, says a well-known
authority. Meat forms uric acid which
overworks the kidneys in their effort
to filter it from the blood and they
become sort of paralyzed and " loggy.
When your kidneys get sluggish and
cloe you must relieve them, like you
relieve your bowels; removing all the
body s urinous waste, else you have
backache, sick headache, dizzy spells;
your stomach sours, tongue is coated,
ami when the weather is bad you have
rheumatic twinKes. The urine is
cloudy, full of sediment, channels often
get sore, water scalds and you are
obliged to seek relief two or three
times during the night.
Kither consult a good, reliable physi
cian at once or get from your phar
macist about four ounces of Jad Salts;
take a tablespoonful in a glass of
water before breakfast for a few days
and your kidneys will then, act tine.
This famous salts is made from the
acid of grapes and lemon Juice, com
bined with lithia, and has been used
for generations to clean and stimu
late sluggish kidneys, also to neutra
lize acids in the urine so it no longer
irritates, thus ending bladder weak
ness. Jad Salts is a life saver for regular
meat eaters. It is inexpensive, cannot
injure and makes a delightful, effer
vescent lithia-water drink. Adv.
