BOARD FOR SCHOO
Vehement Meeting Augurs
Lively Session of Taxpay
ers Next Tuesday.
MANY SECTIONS COMPLAIN
Hawthorne Delegation Presents Pe
tition Signed by 825 to Get Xew
Site" Some Win Encourage
ment 2 00 Attend.
Judging from the demands for appro
priations that were made upon the
members of the School Board yesterday
lrom residents of various districts
-where new buildings are demanded, the
Board will have a lively time at the
Annual taxpayers' meeting at the Arm
ory next Tuesday night, when the levy
lor school purposes will be finally de
termined following consideration of the
recommendations of the Board.
When the final regular Board meet
ing preceding the taxpayers' meeting
opened yesterday the room was jammed
to. the doors with about 200 partisans,
many of whom made speeches, before
the three-hour . session of fireworks
Armed with a petition signed by 825
residents of the East Side, a large dele
gation requested that the present Haw
thorne School building be. relieved from
the attendance of high school students
or that the Board appropriate funds to
purchase a site for the location of a.
.tiawthonio school building.
Prayer for Site Heard.
J. E. Werleln prefaced his remarks
fcy assuring the Board that he wouldn't
burden it with his 45-minute oration
anil that his delegation would depart
peacefully and modestly, singing the
praises of the Board, if it would assure
nim that it would appropriate money
lor a new site.
At this Dr. Alan Welch Smith shout
ed, "I surrender."
"it Is a disgrace to have children
housed .such as they are at ,the Haw
thorne School, without proper breath
ing facilities." said Mr. Wcrlein. "I
went over there to deliver an address
on Abraham Lincoln, the great eman
cipator, and many of the listeners,
cooped up like slaves, had to sit on the
floor for lack of assembly space. I tell
you it is criminal. Lincoln himself
would turn over in his grave if lie
Could see it."
The opening speaker was Frank S.
Grant. ex-City Attorney, who explained
that the Washington High School stu
dents wore crowding out the Haw
thorne pupils. He declared that the
building rightly belonged to the young
er children until the prospective new
building was erected.
Several Speakers Plead.
Other speakers of the Hawthorne
delegation were H. P. Palmer, L. M.
Lepper, Whitney L. Boise and a repre
sentative of the Hawthorne Parent
Teacher Association. An appeal was
made for the immediate purchase of a
Bite, on the argument that property
could now be bought much cheaper
probably than a year from now. The
estimated cost of two blocks in the
district wanted was $50,000.
Mr. Munly explained how the con-,
etruotion of the new unit of the Frank
lin High School would relieve the con
gestion at the Washington High School
and that the erection of portable build
ings in Malone Heights would ease the
overcrowded condition of the grammar
grades in certain localities.
Dr. Smith told the audience that they,
the Board members, had a right to as
sume that they knew more about the
school needs of Portland than the aver
age taxpayers, who have not given
them study and thought.
Pcninnula 1 Represented.
Qn behalf of the residents of the
Peninsula district George E. Frost
asked that a levy be set aside in ths
budget to finance the erection of an
annex to the Jefferson High Gchool to
relieve the crowded condition of that
building. He suggested the transfer
of the manual training department to
th new building.
Dr George Parrish and Dr. James D.
Corby represented the residents of the
Fsrnwood territory "in a request that
an addition containing an auditorium
be added to the Fernwood Scnool.
I. N. Fleischner and J. N. Desmond
head (xi a delegation from the Ladd
School district with the petition that
portable buildings be erected adjoining
the main building or on the nearby
park blocks, to take care of cooking
and sewing classes and .the overflow
Xrom the regular classes.
Dr. Sommer satisfied Mr. Fleischner
tlitf temporary arrangements would be
ejected to relieve the situation.
A delegation was also present to urge
that a new school be erected to replace
the old Buckman school. ,
In suggesting a step that would re
lieve the congested conditions in the
liigh schools, Chairman Munly yester
day announced that the present Shat
tuck School building probably would
be evolved Into a commercial h'h
school as soon as the new Shattuck
School is completed.
6CHOOL. MEltCiER PROPOSED
Superintendent Alderman Addresses
In his address last night at the meet
injg held in the Buckman Scnool by the
Parent-Teacher Association, City Super
intendent Alderman said that the Board
of Kducation probably would provide
inj the budget for the purchase of a- site
ii Central East Portland for a school
house in which the Buckman and Haw.
tliorne schools could be united. ' He
praised the work of the Parent-Teacher
7,. a. rsigeiow, who suggested two '
yars ago the consolidation of the!
Bookman and Hawthorne schools, spoke
on the subject last night, and. said that
It likely would b brought about. Mr.
Bigelow declared that ample grounds
should be purchased for that purpose,
and pointed out that the Buckman
buildi'ig would have to be moved to
permit the extension of Sandy boule
vard to East Burnside street.
A musical programme was provided,
two students of the deaf mute depart
ment taking part. It was decided to
bold a "homecoming" in February-of all
teachers of the Buckman School and
others interested. Principal Van Tine
was appointed chairman of the com
mittee to correspond and invite the for
mer teachers to attend. The reunion
will be under the auspices of the Buck
man Parent-Teacher Association.
"rjLANS FOR SCHOO Ij ORDERED

The School Board yesterday direcsted
Its architect, F. A. Naramore, to com

erection of the one-story Kennedy
Bchool, on Jessup street, between East

Union against the practice of having
electrical work in school buildings per
formed by regular school employes or
students, Instead of inviting bids for
all work amounting to more than $500,
probably will be tested in the courts.
The present method saves time and
money, but it is averred, that it is il
legal. At the request of William D. Wheel
wright, of the Portland Symphony Or
chestra, the petition made recently that
the Board donate $1000 to help support
the orchestra was withdrawn.
A message was reported from Mayor
Albee that the City Commissioners de

SCHOOL WORK AWARDED
CONTRACTS FOR TWO BUILDINGS
GO TO PORTLAND FIRMS.
Shattuck Structure, to "Cost " S121.575,
and Couch $160,000 Lower Bid
' Is Held Irregular.
The general contract for the con
struction of the new Shattuck school
building was awarded to the firm of
Boyajohn-Arnold Company, of Port
land, by the School Board yesterday.
The bid of the winning firm, $212,575,
was approximately $5000 higher than
the one submitted by Olson & Johnson,
of Missoula. Mont., whose proposal was
declared irregular because no alternate
figures were quoted and no check was
inclosed to cover them.
When the question was opened at
the Board m-eeting yesterday, George
C. Mason, as secretary of the Non
partisan League, vigorously protested
against the scheduled award to the
"By giving the work to the Montana
firm you will save the taxpayers $5000."
said Mr. Mason. "While there may he
a technical irregularity, it is not inter
esting when it costs so dearly." .
Directly opposite views were taken
by W. M. Davis, Colonel David M.
Dunne, president' of the Manufacturers'
Association; A. H. Devers. A. H. Averill,
president of tne Chamber of Commerce;
Judge W. N. Gatens and A. E. Clark.
The Boyajohn-Arnold- Company also
recently received the general, contract
for the construction of the $160,000
Couch School. In. that case it was not

An armistice, until Xovemner 28 has
been declared by the Hod Sins and
Suey Sing tongs in Portland's Chinese
quarter. Notice of the temporary
agreement has been posted on all
prominent corners in Chinatown, and
yesterday the tong leaders mingled
with their fellow-countrymen on the
streets for the first time In nearly two
Meanwhile the Heng Wo Woi, or
general peace society, is holding daily-
conferences with the Hop Sing and
suey sing leaders from San Francisco,
in an endeavor to' reach a permanent
agreement. The stumbling-block is the
fate of Lum Chong Ying, the Suey Sing
hatchetman who opened the war Satur
day night, November 7, and bungled
his task of killing Jim Wong, a promi
nent Hop Sing merchant. The Hop
Sings want Lum Chong Ying expelled
irom the buey sing tong, and this de
mand has caused a hitch in the proceedings.
The Suey Sings are willing to pay an
indemnity to the Hop Sings for the
stabbing of Jim Wong. They are will
ing also to pay . money for the bullet
that Jung Sing received in his thigh in
the street battle last Saturday night.
But the fate of Lum Chong Ying, who
now languishes. 1n the City Jail, is still
In doubt. S.
It is asserte&Ttthat the trouble in
California last Saturday night has been
satisfactorily adjusted. The battles in
San Francisco and Stockton, which re
sulted in at least two killings, took the

Final Result Confirms Report In
The Oregon lan and Totals Are
Not Changed Chamberlain
Lead Is 9642.
WOHD MAY ASK RECOUNT,
It was reported last night that
Sheriff Word had decided to de
mand a recount on the office 'of
Sheriff for ' which Thomr.s M.
Hurlburt defeated him by 171
votes, according to the official
count. Mr. Word, it yas said,
had secured subscriptions from
friends to defray a considerable
portion of the expense. No con
firmation of the report was made
by Mr. Word.
"I have nothing to give out at
this time," lie said.
Mr. Hurlburt declares he would
'welcome a recount,, as he is con
fident it would only confirm the
result as it now stands.
After working steadily on the official
count for Multnomah County for more
than a week County Clerk Coffey's
deputies assigned to the task completed
their work last night except the results
on Initiative measures and amendments.
The totals reached do not change the
results already announced, confirming
The Oregonian's earlier, returns .on
Thomas M. Hurlburt is found to have
defeated Sheriff Tom M. Word forthe
Shrievalty by a plurality of 171 votes.
Mr. Hurlburt's total is 34,290, and votes
cast for Mr. Word numbered 34,119.
George E. Chamberlain for United
States Senator got 35,667 votes to 25,
925 for R. A. Booth, having a plu
rality of 9642.
' Wlthycombe's Lead 11,876.
Dr. James Withcombe leads strongly
for Governor, having 39,003 votes, while
C. J. Smith has 27.127, giving the
former a lead of 11,876. C. N. McAr
thur, for Congress, got 26.63S votes. A".
W. Lafferty 1664 9 and A. F. Flegel 23,
697. The winning Representative has
a plurality of 2939.
The official count now will be started
on the various constitutional amend
ments and measures on the ballot,
which probably will require a week or
more to complete.
The official count shows that C. M.
Hurlburt defeated Roscoe1 P. Hurst for
Joint Representative by 4S0 vote3, ap
proximately the lead given him by The
Oregonian immediately after the unof
ficial count was made. Subsequent re
ports had been circulated that Hurst
led Hurlburt in this county and had
been elected. Hurlburt carried both,
counties and is elected by 1748 votes.

them claiming to have perused the
story ""a thousand times." came to the
Heiliglast night in motion-picture
form. Jn -picturing- "St. Elmo," which
of its kind is. a classic and a big story,
the Balboa Company, producers' of the
film have . rendered the lovers of Au
gusta J."Evn WHson's writings a rare
and valuable service.--
' Not alo-ne is the story of "St-. Elmo V
faithfully told, but the manners, cus
toms and fashions of the Civil War
period have been revived and recorded
In an artistic way that will everlast
ingly, preserve them to the world. The
Interest, evinced by the packed-in au
dience is . a splendid tribute to the
memory.tDf. Augusta Evans and the af
fectionate esteem in which her great
novel-is held-by the reading public.
The story is' divided Into six parts.'
and an .all-star .cast of players -from
the Balboa Company, at Long Beach,
Cal., has Produced it with infinite care
and with. .an. apparent deeply senti
mental regard for the, ruths and high
ly moral tone 'of the story.
William. Jaslsey.; playa St. Elmo, the
hero, who slays his best friend ' and
is possessed of a devil who fights for
his soul lor '20 years. Gypsy Abbott
plays- the role of Edna Earle, the
blacksmith's daughter. whose pure
ideals win St.- Elmo back to his home
and friends -and to preach a sermon in
the church he had erected for his mur
dered rival. : .'
.-Francis McDonald plays Murry Ham
mond, hafrlval, and Madeline Pardee is
Agnes; the beautiful soulless schemer,
whose unfaithfulness .to her fiance, St.
Elmo, and her love for Murry brings
the duel, and Murry s death at the hands
of St."Elmo." These are the principals,
but hundreds of other actors enter into
the making of the filmed story. It is
realistically and sincerely told, and the
photoplay is excellent.
The first reel depicts the two men
as rivals tor the love of Agnes Hunt.
The secont part is the betrayal of St.
Elmo by his riend, into whose care he
has put Agnes, and the duel that fol
lows when he learns of their perfidy.
Part three is St. Elmo's wanderings
from place to place for 20 years, and
his meeting with Edna Earle. Part
four depicts Edna's life, her grand-

PAIN IN THE BACK
Do not worry about a pain In your
back. The worry will do you more
harm .than the pain. The serious dis
eases of the kidneys seldom or never
produce such pains while the cause of
most backaobe is muscular rheuma-
t ism, -which; Is . gainful but never fatal,
.umbago is a form of muscular rheu
matism, so is stiff neck.
.. Sufferers from-' any form of muscu I
lai rheumatism affecting the Joints
should keep the general health at the
highest standard by the use of a non
alcoholic tonic like Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, and eat good nourishing food
without to much meat. Proper nutri
tion and good blood- are the best
means of fighting rheumatism. Medi
cines do not control the disease di
rectly but a well - nourished system
will often throw it off. Rheumatism
quickly thins the blood. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills act directly on the blood
and as they build it up and strengthen
the system there Is an increaK- re
sistance to the rheumatic poisons. In
this way many rheumatic sufferers
have found complete recovery.
A book "Building Up the Blood"
whlcti tells about she ; treatment of
rheumatism is free . for the asking
from the Dr. Williams Medicine Co,
