slippery, wormy flavor that you get

cherries grown in Oregon age, color
or previous condition of servitude taken
into consideration. The blamed little
wriggly things stagger along under the
awful name of curcullo. No wonder
they sneak Into cherries to hide their
shame, under a deeper and truer blush.

Mayor Declares That Portland Shall

The Travelers' Aid Association was ad
dressed by Mayor Harry Lane last night
and assured of" the- cleanest town it Is
possible to make under existing laws. The
association has succeeded In accomplish
ing a vast amount of good so far, but now
that the Mayor has Indorsed Its work ao
heartily and" declared his Intention of
standing by all that is moral In the way
of reforms. It Is felt by the workers In
this field that their efforts will be reward
ed by better results In the future. Mayor
Lane did not beat about the bush, but
clearly expressed his determination to do
a few things In Portland, the principal or
which is to make it lively for those who
do not comply with the box ordinance.
"When I became a candidate for the
Mayoralty." he said. "I gave my word to
my supporters that I would enforce the
laws as I found them to exist and do all

and there will be no favoritism shown In
any part of town. Any man who breaks
the law pays the penalty from now on.
"I also told Grltzmachcr to tell the un
fortunate women of the North End that
no man can protect them If they over
step the law. and no man can prosecute
them If they obey It. I am after a class
of men who live off those women, and I
am going to get them. The lowest wom

"Will Close the Boxes.
Mayor Lane promised not only that he
would close every box In town, but that
he would clean out all sorts of disrepu
table resorts which arc a menace to worn
en and girls and youths. The town Is full
of such places in various garbs, but the
city executive Is confident that, with his
determination to enforce the law and with
the assistance of such organizations as
the Travelers' Aid, 73 per cent or SO
per cent of them can be reached at once.
He volunteered to be of any help possible
to the association In Its work, and asked
them to call upon him unhesitatingly at
Judge Hogue gave the work of the
Travelers' Aid his hearty indorsement
also, and assured the members that they
could depend upon Mayor Lane's prom
ises. He paid Mrs. Lola Baldwin, the
superintendent, high tribute, saying that
the work could not be In better hands
than hers. Ofllccr Hawley, of the Boys
and Girls Aid Society, was another
speaker who commends the work of this
organization, and In his talk he cited a
number of cases which have come under.
his observation to illustrate how very lax
parents are apt to be with young daugh
ters, and what a vast amount of evil re
sults from It.
Caring; for Newcomers.
Mrs. Baldwin stated In her report that
when the association workers undertook
to help women or girls, especially those
met at trains, they invariably took
them to headquarters, never leaving them
alone at the station an Instant, as It Is
positively known to them that agents of
disreputable houses met every train and
wait about the station for chances to en
tice country girls to go home with them
Numerous cases which the association
has cared for during tho month of June
were reported upon, and the great amount
of good accomplished Is beyond question,
There was also a fine report by a worker
of the local Salvation Army corps, who
meets all boats and cares for those who
are landed here penniless or In trouble.
The association is In need of money to
carry on this work, and will appreciate
any donations which may be sent for the
purpose. It was suggested at last night's
meeting that subscriptions of Jl a month
would not be missed by many and would
assist materially In the conduct of one of
the most charitable works which has
ever been undertaken in Portland.

Lawyers Disagree Regarding
LANE AND THE GAMBLERS
It Is Possible That the Charter May
Give Him the Itlght to Sup
press the Games In
That Mayor Lane has power to suppress
gambling at Mllwaukle, because that
place Is within four miles of the city
boundaries Is indicated by many court
opinions in other states where It has been
held that when a municipal charter gives
a Mayor power to suppress nuisances and
public menaces beyond the city limits,
the Mayor can wield that authority even
In neighboring municipalities.
This does not coincide, however, with
the opinions of City Attorney McNarjVr
District Attorney Manning or State Attor
ney-General Crawford, who hold that be
cause Mllwaukle is a municipality separate
from Portland nnd moreover lies In an
other county. Mayor Lane's police power
cannot invade it.
What the Charter Provides.
Tho -hnrter of Portland, section 1M. or
dains that whenever, within four miles
of the corporate limits of Portland.
Mmhllnir t nraotleed. or lotteries are
conducted or lewd or obscene amusements
are held. "It shall be lawful for the Mayor
or the Executive Board to autnonze ana
direct the Chief of Police or any officer
of the force" to arrest the offenders, and
"the Chief of Police shall cause such ar
rested persons to be vigorously pros
ecuted." No one disputes that Mayor Lane can
suppress gambling within four miles of
-Pnrtinnd limits If the irambllnr is done in
Multnomah County and outside the bound
aries of a neighboring municipality.
Many court decisions have been made in
other states, holding that nuisances in
such neighboring municipalities can be
abated by the offended city, when Its
charter grants it power to exercise Its
police powers beyond its own limits nnd
the principle seems to be well established.

corporation can exercise Its corporate
powers only within the city limits. But
the Legislature may, and often does,
grant to municipal corporations, the right
to exercise police power beyond and with
in a prescribed distance of the municipal
limits. So also it has been held that the
authority of a city to act beyond its
boundaries may be implied on the ground
of a special necessity, as in preserving
from deposits of filth a stream which
bounds the city or conducting sewers and
drains out' of the city and the like.
The Chicago Instance.
One of the noteworthy court opinions
which lays down the principle that a
city when authorized to go beyond Its
boundaries to suppress nuisances can
enter with its police power a neighbor
ing municipality Is that of the Chicago
Packing & Provision Company versus
the City of Chicago, reported In SS Illi
nois, page 221.
The City of Chicago was granted
power by the laws of Illinois to regulate
the health of the city within the corpor
ate limits and for one mile beyond. "With
in one mile of those limits was the town
of Lake, wherein was maintained a
slaughter-house that was deemed a men
ace to the health of the people of Chi
cago. The Chicago authorities undertook
to suppress the slaughter-house and the
slaughter-house people pleaded a license
from the town of Lake. The Supreme
Court of Illinois upheld the authorities
of Chicago, saying: t
Power of Legislation.
"There can be no doubt that the Gen
eral Assembly (Legislature) may, for po
lice purpose's, prescribe the limits of
municipal bodies, and in addition thereto,
may enlarge those boundaries one mile
In every direction, and the Legislature
has the power to Increase those limits,
even though they may lap over terri
tory within the limits of other municipal
ities. We can see many weighty rea
sons for exercising this power. The
town of Lake Is sparsely populated. Did
the General Assembly Intend that a city
n.i nnmil.ttoil mlcht on Its border jo!n-
j Ing the City of Chicago, permit estab-
lisnmcnix nui it imuiitciiuiu
gerous to its less dense population, but
Intolerable nuisances to the dense popu
lation of Chicago? Did they Intend that
Chicago should be annoyed and Injured
In health and comfort by the exercise
of the power of the corporation with
a comparatively sparse population and
to submit to- having imposed on them
such nuisances as the town of Lake
might impose upon them? The people
of Chicago have the right to be pro
tected against all kinds of business that
endanger life and health and from in
tolerable nuisances that destroy their
comfort. To accomplish this purpose tho
power was conferred on cities and .vil
lages to regulate these establishments
for the distance of one mile beyond their
corporate limits, even if that should lap
over and embrace a portion of territory
Included in the boundaries of another
municipality. This Is within the letter
and we have no doubt the spirit of the
