Determined, if possible, to rid the Fair
entrance of saloons, members of the Anti
Saloon League will propose to the Mayor
today or tomorrow that he call a special
meeting of the Council next Wednesday,
for passrce of ' an ordinance submitting
to the electors of the city, June 5, the
question whether liquor licenses at that
place shall be revoked.
The foes of the Fair liquor shops will
submit to the tounclI at the special meet
ing, if the Mayor will consent to call
that body, a proposed ordinance Initiated
by signatures of at least 13 per cent of
the votes cast three years ago in the
city election, that being the number pre-,
scribed by the charter. When such a
petition shall be presented to the Council
that body is required by the charter to
submit the initiated ordinance to the
voters of the city ''at the next city elec
tion." "It all depends on the Mayor." said Dr.
J. R. Wilson last night, president of the
Oregon Anti-Saloon League. "If he will
consent to call the Council together next
Wednesday, we can .present the petition
at that time, signed by the required num
ber of electors. In that case the Coun
cil must pass the ordinance, submitting
the question of revoking the saloon li
censes, to the people. Unless the Mayor
Is willing to call the Council Into special
session next Wednesday, the question can
not "be submitted to the voters at the
city election June 5, and the settlement
of the issue will have to be deferred.
"In that case we may present the peti

Council and that body can order a special
"The number of signatures to the peti
tion would not be more than 2200, and I
am quite sure that number could be se
cured Tuesday and Wednesday, In time
to present It to the Council Wednesday."
According to the law the ticket for the
election June. 5 must be prepared by the
City Auditor not later than Thursday.
This means that the" initiated ordinance
must be presented to the Council not
later than Wednesday.
The Council has shown unwillingness
to revoke the licenses of the saloons at
the Fair entrance and foes of the liquor
shops have been unable to move that
body to act in the way they desire. If an
ordinance were initiated by petition the
Council would have no choice but to sub
mit it to the approval pf the electors,
and if it should receive $. majority of
the votes cast on the question It would
have as much binding force as If passed
by the Council.
OR. LANE'S OPEN LETTER
DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE AVRITES
TO .MAYOR WILLIAMS,
DIkcunmcn Latter5 Remark Regarding
Mis Service an Superintendent of
Stnte Insane Arj-Iuib.
PORTLAND. May 20. An open letter.
to the Hon. George H. Williams: In to
day's Oregonian there appears an inter
view with you. now Mayor of the city.
also at this time a candidate for re-elec
tion to that office. In which Interview you
have deemed it proper to speak of me,
jour opponent for that office, as follows:
"Dr. Lane has little conception of the
duties of this office. The most Important
episode of his career was his appoint- J
mept as Superintendent of the State In- i
sane Asylum, from which he was removed
by Governor Pennoyer."
This remark was not a kindly one, and
Its trend is to belittle me In the eyes of
the people, before whom I am a candi
date in opposition to yourself, and as
such entitled to your respect as an hon
orable opponent, and for that matter as
an intelligent one, so long as I demean
myself as such.
In respect to my conception of the duties
of the office .of Mayor, I do not mind
saying that I am quite willing to con
cede that they differ radically from yours
If one may be. allowed to judge them as
they appear In your public acts during the
last three years. For one thing. If I
am elected I shall not conceive it my
duty, nor In good taste on my part, as
a servant of the. people, to mete out re
buff tp such honorable citizens as may
call my attention to frauds which are be
ing practiced In the consummation of
contracts for public work for which the
public have to pay. And if In the public
outcry which ensues the work of the
contractor has to be done over, I
do not believe that I shall ever be quite
able to bring myself to set up that style
of doing business as the proper method
to pursue, to acquire the best and most
economical results, and finally set it up
again as a logical reason for my re-election
Upon the contrary. It Is my conception
that it will be my duty to demand of the
contractor an exact fulfillment of his con
tract, and- to sec that he is protected by
fair and honorable' supervision and paid
for his work when properly done and not
before. This Is but. simple justice, and
is a rule which I will not find hard to
My conception of my duty will never
allow me to deceive. inyself into believing
that the city' can honorably pay Its legiti
mate expenses by going1-into partnership
with a parcel of "brace game" gamblers
lor a share of- the raKcoff which can be
fleeced out -of the less' sophisticated of o.ur
citizens and the stranger who conies
among us. Nor do I believe that any
profit can be made by such methods of
carrying on public business. Quite as
logical .would It be and more profitable
perhaps to Import a few skilful cracks
men and turn them loose upon the banks
of this city for a share of the loot to
be thus acquired.
It will be well within my conception of
my duty, if I am elected, that the peace
and the welfare of the poor unhappy wives
and- children of the victims of the" gam
bler are of vastly more Importance than
that of a class of men who blaze a
broader trail of destitution for mothers,
ruin for boys, and drag down to .hell more
girls than any other class among us.
I am a bit particular about the class of
persons that I hook up with." and. in
that time to come it may well be that my
soul will starve for a drop of water, and
If It should so happen I would prefer. that
1 might leek with soaae show of -hope into
the eyes of the mothers of little children.
xour reasoning may be specious, but
nevertheless there will be no partnership
with Larry nor Pete nor Jack, If 1 am
It Is my conception of duty that the
orderly saloon is here by law, as I am,
and unless the law shall be changed, the
keeper is entitled to fair treatment, and
he will get it at my hands. It-is also my
conception that the dives where "knockout
drops" are administered and the stranger
Is enticed and robbed of his money are
evil places, and the road is going to be an
unpleasant one for the keeper of the same
to travel If I am elected.
These are a few of my conceptions of
the duties of the office, which I will owe
It to the people to see clearly, if I am
elected. There are many others, and If
space permitted I would not object to
speaking them out quite frankly, for It is
not my Intention nor wish In any manner
to "run cunning" In a race for the office
of Mayor of this city.
Wherein you have said that the most
important episoJe of my career was
my service as Superintendent of the
Oregon State Insane Asylum, you speak
truly. Jt was, and I question If I would
be able to do better service for the city
as Its Mayor than I did for the state as
Superintendent of- the asylum. If I did
as well, I would have nothing to be
ashamed of, nor be compelled to enter
into a campaign of explanations in the
event that I sought a re-election. There
was nr. aftermath of scandals nor In
dictments of my fellow-workers and
assistants when I left that institution.
Quite willingly will I let my record
thefbstand for my pledges to the peo
ple here. 1 do not say that any other
man could not have managed it better
than 1 did, but I do say that I did my
Wherein you say that I was removed
from that office by Governor Pennoyer
you are In error. I served my full term
and only failed to be re-elected to a
second one. and just how that medicine
tastes, many a man at some time sets
proof from his own palate. At any rate
there were no charges of graft or fraud
or incompetence brought against my
conduct of the office at that time or
since, nor may it be done lightly by
anyone. It sounds to me as If there
might be a bit of malice in your state
ment that I was removej by Governor
Per.noyer. Before the late Governor
Pennoyer died we met. and buried all
animosities and shook hands, and he at
that time urged me to run for Mayor
against yourself, then a candidate for
your first election, assuring me of his
support If I did so and his hearty good
wishes; and it pains me to add that he
expressed a lack of confidence In your
ability to give the city a decent and
just management of its affairs.
When I opened this campaign I said
publicly that upon my part there would
be nothing personal, nothing vindictive,
nothing said by me which would wound
your feelings. Ou fight should be cour
teous 2s beseemed gentlemen who as
pired to represent the city as Its ex
ecutive head. So far as I am concerned
I would like quite well to be allowed
to continue In that manner to the endt
On the other hand I shall not patiently,
allow myseir to oe Hamstrung and the
man who undeftakes to do so had i best

Citizens' Party Nominees Are
With the Auditor.
OTHERS OFFER PETITIONS
Fearing to Delay Until Monday, the
Independent Candidates Take Xo
Risk in Complying With Law
Just before the closing of the City
Auditor's office yesterday afternoon, a
delegation from the citizens party filed
separate petitions of nomination in be
half of those selected by the political
organization for offices not' otherwise
filled by the indorsement of a candi
date from any other party. Altogether
there were submitted the names of
five candidates for as many different
municipal offices, distributed as fol
lows: T. B. McDevItt, Sr., S25 Weldler
street, for Municipal Judge, with 651
signatures to his petition,
Albert N. Gambell, 7GS Halght ave
nue, for City Auditor, with C69 signa
tures. Harry W. Stone, 195 Eleventh street,
for CouncIlman-at-Large,' with 66S sig
natures. Dr. S. A. Brown. 407 Yamhill street,
for Councilman-at-Large. with 669 sig
natures. M. A. Raymond, W02 East Washing
ton street, for Councilman, Eeighth
Hugh W. Wallace, nominee of the
citizens party for Councilman from
the Second Ward, had already filed his
petition. Opposed to him are Larry Sul
livan, the Republican candidate, and
Charles Duggan, who will make the
race for the Democrats.
Leaders of the citizens" party insist
that they will not be required to file
petitions In behalf of Dr. Harry Lane,
their candidate for Mayor, nor of any
other candidate whom they indorsed,
claiming that this was" rendered unnec
essary by reason of their petitions hav
ing already been filed. It Is the pre
vailing sentiment among them, how
ever, that considerable campaign lit
erature will have to be promulgated in
order that voters may become properly
apprised of the situation.
In adltlon to the foregoing. Fred T.
Merrill, incumbent, yesterday filed a
petition as independent candidate-. lor
Councilman from the Third Ward:
John Corklsh, whose residence is given
as 509 Morrison street, filed a petition
as Independent, candidate for Council
man from the Fourth Ward In opposi
tion to George S. Sheppard. the regular
Republican nominee; and John M. Pif
tensrer. of 624 Borthwick street, filed a
petition as Independent candidate for
Councilman from lhe Ninth Ward In
apposition to R. E. Menefee, the Re
publican nominee. The Democrats have
made no nominations thus far in either
of the two last-named -wards.

Not satisfied with all the nominees
on the citizens ticket, which was
framed last Wednesday night In con
tention, some leaders of the reform
forces have announced tnat they win
pick out their candidates from other
.tickets. The dissatisfaction comes
from the nomination of five prohibi
tionists for the Council, who are con
sidered to be several too many and of
A. N. Gambell for Auditor, and T. B.
McDevItt, Sr., for Municipal Judge.
Therefore when the Municipal Asso
ciation shall make Its Indorsements
this week several nominees on the citi
zens' ticket may find themselves de
serted. At last Wednesday night's conven
tion, the programme failed In several
cases, notably as to Auditor, for which
the leaders did not Intend to make any
nomination or Indorsement. Yet a nom
ination was made, that of A. N. Gam
bell, on motion of a Democrat. Consid
erable dissatisfaction has cropped out
Satisfied With Devlin.
"So far as I have heard," remarked
a member of the executive committee of
the association last night, "Auditor
Devlin has been an efficient officer.
When an officer of government gives
satisfactory service the association
has no fight to make on him."
Some talk against McDevItt for Mu
nicipal Judge has been heard but not
much Inasmuch as the reform forces
are not so well satisfied with the reg
ular Republican nominee. Cameron, for
that place, as with Devlin for Auditor.
The citizens' camp Is content with
Lane for Mayor and with most of its
nominees for the Council. But the five
Prohibition nominees out of the 15 se
lected by the convention for the Coun
cil, they fear will capsize the reform
cause. The citizens' workers are very
desirous of electing a majority of the
next Council as well us the Mayor, be
cause, the legislative branch of the
city government Is quite as impor
tant to their purposes as the executive..
Slate Was Broken.
It was not intended by prime movers of
tli convention that R. R. Steele. Prohi
bition nominee for Councllman-at-Large.
should be indorsed by the Citizens nor
that three other Prohibition nominees for
ward Councilmen should be chosen as the
candidates of the convention. In the sev
enth Ward, Samuel Morrow. Prohibition
nominee, was Indorsed over J. E. Martin,
who was to have been the Citizens' nomi
nee and whose petition of nomination was
almost complete. Nor was It Intended that
P. Anderson. Prohibitionist In the
Ninth, should defeat John M. PIttenger
for the Indorsement, and yesterday PIt
tenger filed a petition of Independent nom
inatlon with the City Auditor, despite the
victory of Anderson In the convention.
But what makes most indignation jn tne
"Citizen ranks Is the refusal of Prohibition
Ists to line up with the Citizens' ticket.
after five of their number have been put
on the ticket and leaders of the Prohibi
tion party took part in the making of the
ticket in the Citizens' Convention and
apparently bound themselves to support
