Mayor Lane Will Adopt It in
. Portland.
It Is Proposed to Ask Owners to
Permit the "Worthy Poor to
Cultivate Them for Gar
den 'Truck.
Mayor Lane has about concluded to
.adopt the Pingree .system in the matter
of providing occupations for some of the
deserving poor of the community, and to
ask certain owners of available vacant
lots for permission to use these holdings
in connection with gardening operations
on a small scale of those too old and in
firm to earn a living through the ordin
ary process of labor, and who have an
aversion to entering any public institu
tion of a charitable character.
He says that it is his intention to sug
gest the matter to some of the benevolent
associaions and endeavor to secure their
cooperation, and believes that under the
climatic conditions prevailing In this
neighborhood, in connection with the gen
eral productive character of the soil, a
man is competent to earn a good living
by cultivating the ground carefully, no
matter how old he is.
"Any man is capable of doing a little
work," said the Mayor in discussing tfrc
subject yesterday, "and it does not re
quire a great deal to keep thepe people
. in ordinary comfort. I am sure there are
lots of worthy people here who are ac
tually suffering for the necessities of life
because they arc too proud to solicit
alms, and who would appreciate any ef
fort in their behalf that would tend to
enable them to earn an honest living
without appealing to the cold charities
of mankind."
The Pingree system has been operated
with gratifying success in a number of
largo cities. It originated quite a while
ago with Mayor Pingree, of Detroit. Mich.,
who applied it as a remedy to certain local
conditions. In that particular instance,
vacant lots were secured and planted to
potatoes and other garden truck, and
while there are no records of any great
fortunes having been made, it is a fact
that it was the medium by which the
pathways of many deserving persons were
paved with enough comforts td reward
those who promulgated the idea.
Lady Gold Watch Found on Ills Per
son la Supposed to Have Been
Investigation by the police has devel
oped "what is believed to have been a
remarkable plan on the part of pris
oners in the City Jail to secure their
liberty by assisting Francis Mitchell
in his attempt to tunnel out of his cell,
Friday night. It is believed now that
he had friends in the cells below, and
that they kept singing to drown any
noise he might make while using a
spoon to scrape the plaster from the
floor overhead.
Mitchell did not succeed in his at
tempt to break jail, but it is believed
that had he done so he would have also
tried to liberate at least some of the
prisoners on the ground floor. Mitchell
was arraigned before Municipal Judge
Cameron yesterday on a charge of lar
ceny and was held to the grand Jury.
Mitchell is believed to be a desperate
and experienced roomworker. He was
brought to bay by the activity of Head
quarters Detectives Kerrigan and
Snow, who arrested him early Friday
morning arid locked him up in the City
Jail. He was captured on a description
furnished by the Tacoma officials.
Mitchell was recently under arrest
there. He was sentenced to the rock
pile, but escaped.
Detectives Kerrigan and Snow are
now endeavoring to ascertain where
and how Mitchell came into possession
of a lady's watch, of the most delicate
variety. It is a gold timepiece, and
with it was a chatelain and a small pin.
These were found in Mitchell's sock
when he was searched at headquarters,
and are believed to have been stolen
from some room. They are being held
for Identification.
Information received from Tacoma
yesterday by Detectives Kerrigan and
Snow Is to the effect that Mitchell was
a persistent thief there. He was ar
rested for stealing goods from several
rooms. He was known as LeRoy, and
had given the police much trouble.
Mitchell was associated -with a gang
rounded up by Kerrigan and Snow Fri
day, one of whom has been held to the
grand Jury and the other two were
discharged yesterday from the Munici
pal Court and ordered to leave the city
Mrs. Elizabeth Aschelm Exposes
Herself Too Often.
SAN FRANCISCO, Augr. 5. (Special.)
Mrs. Elizabeth Aschelm, one of the
most expert radiographers In the
X'nited States, died at her home in this
city two days ago. Mrs. Aschelm has
been a noted experimenter with the X
ray and it Is said her death was partly
caused from too frequent exposure to
the rays.
Several months ago Mrs. Aschelm
sustained burns that necessitated the
amputation of her right arm. The opera
tion was performed at the German Hos
pital. Mrs. Aschelm began experimenting
wltn the X-ray in 1894. Her laboratory
at 611 Sutter street was among the
most complete on the Coast. She -was a
member of the Roentgen X-Ray Society
and for a number of years attended to
all the radiograph work for the United
States Army.
Big Percentage of Failures at Med
ical Examination.
Out of 58 applicants who took the ex
amination before the State Board of
Medical Examiners, early in July, to bo
permitted to practice medicine in the
State of Oregon, only 22 passed. The re
port of tho State Board of Medical Exam
iners was completed yesterday by Secre
tary Dr Byron E. Miller. The examina
tion was held in Portland at the Ys M. C
A. headquarters.
Dr Miller, who is of Portland, stated
last night upon submitting: the report that
.nearly alt pi thoso who failed were re-.
cent graduates from medical colleges. He
said the percentage of failure was "un
usually large, which he attributes to the
increasing' carelessness of the teachers
in the colleges. He said that while many
of the students who failed were good in
Latin, many of them were very poor in
spelling, and fell down on the simplest
and easiest words of the English lan
guage. The physicians who passed were
most all old experienced doctors who have
come to Oregon from other states.
The State Board of Examiners is com
posed of Dr. A. B. Gillls. of Salem, presi
dent; Dr. H. E. Curry. Baker City, treas
urer; Dr. Byron E. Miller, of Portland,

District Attorney Suppresses News of
Cotton Scandal Inquiry.
ington, Aug. 5-SInce the grand Jury In
Washington began its Investigation into
the cotton scandal, the court officials in
the District of Columbia have become
very sensitive. Several newspapers,
thirsting for tho news, have made fran
tic efforts to ascertain what was going
on in the' grand Jury-room, and .some of
them printed Trhat purported to be run
ning accounts of each day's proceedings.
This wont on for- several days, until the
District Attorney made the rounds of the,!
newspaper omces and warned tne Conors
and correspondents that any reporter
seeking to obtain information about grand
Jury proceedings was in contempt of
court, and that any newspaper printing
the proceedings was alike in contempt.
This warning had the desired effect; tho
full reports of Jury proceedings soon
This Is vthe- first time, however, that
any effort has been made in Washington
to Invoke this especial contempt law.
During other sessions of the grand Jury,
reports of the proceedings have been
printed and nothing was said. But the
men who are conducting me cotton in
vestigation are very touchy lately, 'bo
cause of the obstacles they are encounter
ing. They axe especially Incensed be
cause of two enormous bungles that wore
made In allowing Chief Statistician Hyde
to get away to Europe, and his assistant,
Mr. Holmes, to hike away to Canada, be
yond the reach of a subpena. By these
errors the Government has lost two of
its most valuable witnesses; possibly In
tended victims, and this fact may acr
count Xor the dlsgruntlemcnt of the court
officials. Then, too. the papers were
probably getting too near the. facta to
suit the District Attorney.
Jacob A. Riis Seeks Contribution to
Neighborhood Settlement.
NEW YORK, July 23. (To the EdltorO
When last Winter I lectured In your great
country, never dreaming of the shadow
that was even then hovering over my
home, 1 had so many proofs that your
people on the Pacific Coast knew and
loved her who was the soul and Inspira
tion of all my work, that my heart was
deeply touched. And now that wc are
trying in my own city to rear to her
sweet and wholesome life, ended upon
earth a fitting memorial, I would that
some 'of the bricks might be laid by the
faithful hands that shook mine such a
little while ago, an age though It seems to
me. The managers of the Jacob Rlls
Neighborhood Settlement at iS and 50
nry street have decided to couple her
name with one of the two buildings, when
they have paid off the mortgage of $30,000
which too long has crippled the work.
When that Is done, more than $1500 a year
which now goes for interest will be turnd
Into the work that reaches 2C05 soul3 with
sweetening touch In that downtown of
New York where the home struggles with
fearful odds in a tenement-hou?e environ
ment that makes "all for unrighteous
ness." We havc'already $7G03 in hand, and have
high hopes of succeeding within the time
set, viz.. before the end of the year. If
any of our Western friends def Ire to help,
checks should be made out to "Clara
Field, Treasurer." and sent to 45 Henry
street, for the memorial mortgage fund.
And will you let me here thank your peo
ple for the many messages of sympathy
and friendship which I have been unable
personally to answer? They did help
by telling us that we are truly kin. being
made In his image, and that therefore
there Is no death, though the body perish.
The Looney Bull.
JEFFERSON. Or.. Aug. 5. (To the Ed
itor.) I wish to Inform the public that
neither I nor any other member of our
family bad anything whatever to .do with
the publication M the article entitled "Bull
of Base Birth In The Oregonian. July SO.
A correspondent Informed me over the
telephone that he wanted for publication J
statement from both sides, and said that
Mr. Looney would be In town In a short
time to give his side for publication. I told
him that I did not think I had any right to
give any statement, as this was In charge
of the American Jersey Cattle Club. I re
ferred him to the resident director and told
him to publish nothing unless fr6m this
source. He expressed a doubt of getting V-e
Information as I directed. I. too. was satis
fled that Mr. Ladd would not consent to the
publication I considered this a matter of
latrrest to Jersey breeders alone and our
family has tried to keep it from an eager,
prying public I felt sure that the club
would deal In perfect fairness and publish
only what it saw fit. There is a mistake In
this article. I never expressed to anyone
a doubt whether the real . Golden J. Exile
ever existed. I had proof that Golden J
Exile was registered In August. 1003. almost
a year prior to Sir. Looneys purchase of the
Miller bull. I do not know what the writer
means by "base birth." The Miller bull was
a pure-bred A. J. C C., entitled to register.
The Oregonian printed the article
complained of on Its own responsibility.
It did not deem It. necessary to con
sult the American Jersey Cattle Club
or anyone else about Its right to print
rthe story. Inasmuch as the matter, and
the swindle It exposed, were of public
Interest and Importance.

Go Slow, Says Mr. Goldsmith.
PORTLAND. Or., Aug. 5. (To the Edi
tor.) Noting the controversy In your pa
per between tho Barber Asphalt Company
and the Warren Bros. Company, relative
to the merits of the bitullthlc pavement
and the bituminous macadam pavement. I
desire to warn the City Council and the
Board of Public Works to be very careful
and weigh this matter carefully before de
ciding to opes this cl&M of improvement
to competition, for the following reasons:
In the first place, the property-owners
know, from actual experience, Jus what
the bitullthlc pavement is and arc satis
fied with It, but they do not know what
the bituminous macadam is. Would It
not be fair and the right thing for the
Barber people to lay, at their own ex
pense, one block of this pavement to show
how it Is constructed and give the people
a chance to see It? I have control of con
siderable property, and from my experi
ence, on a trip of investigation In' the
East, of streets, spending considerable
time and money to satisfy myself regard
ing Just this thing, I am convinced that
I do not want anything put down on my
property but the bitullthlc pavement. The
bituminous macadam thatt was used to
patch Broadway In New York City was
a complete failure. 1 Investigated tnis
and know It for a fact. This Li covered
in an article in the Municipal Journal and
Engineer of May, 1. page 24t. I am de
sirous of seeing fair play. I am also de
sirous of having the property-owners get
a dollar's worth of work for a dollar
expended, and I do not believe, from my
own observation.", that this Is possible
with the bituminous macadam pavement
