Every Job under Mayor Lane is sought
after by a hungry horde of Democrats,
save two, and those are In the pesthouse,
up the Canyon Road, next the county
The Mayor has parceled out several of
the fat Jobs to the faithful and has gone
jretty much the limit; In fact, only civil
service rules shut out the hungry breth
ren from a rich feast. And because His
Honor seems to dominate the Civil Serv
ice Commission, which the "ins" con
sidered the rock of their salvation, the
"out" are clamoring loudly for slices
of the protected pie, saying that His Hon
or can remove whomsoever he pleases
from the numerous civil service berths,
because the patriots who would be cast
into outer darkness thereby, would find
their court of last resort closed against
thorn, the Civil Service Commission. Two
of the three members of that body, W.
L. Brewster, appointed by Lane, and J.
V. Blain, who sided with His Honor in
the offort to oust Milton W. Weldler from
the office of Deputy Auditor, are claimed
by the hungry "outs" as belonging to
the Mayor's party. '
Walling and Gnashing of Teeth.
There is wailing and gnashing of teeth
In the camp of unfed citizens that voted
lor Lane and expected his election to
opon wide the cruel doors which have
iertlflod Republicans so long in fat Jobs
and soft snaps. Only six or seven pld
slices have been doled out by His Honor;
'that Is salaried -ones. Ever so many Jobs
romaln, if the unfed could but get their
daws on them. His Honor has dealt out
.the office of Chief of Police, but not that
of Chlof of the Fire Department; that
of City Engineer, but not of Plumbing
Inspector; that of City Physician, but not
of Superintendent of the Street Cleaning
Department; that of Health Officer, but
not of Poundmaster; that of Superin
tendent of the Crematory, but not of the
Park Department; that of. Building In
spector, but not of Deputy Auditor
in the Fire Department; that of
Food Inspector, but not of Harbormaster,

sioner, salary. $B5 a month.
Those two Jobs are not sought after;
in fact, the office-seeking brethren, are
quite willing to shun the plague and to
allow the incumbents to stay on the city
payroll in ieace.
That's why Beutelspacher and Mrs.
Tout were not crowded out into the cold
world when Dr. J. C. Zan was kicked out
of the Job of City Physician, and Dr. H.
R. Bleradorf out of that of Health Officer
and Robert Robinson, Jr.. out of that of
superintendent of the crematory.
When Mayor Lane first took hold of the
city tiller he kicked out Charles H. Hunt
from the Police Chief Job and elevated to

Vain Effort to Kemove Weldler.
Then came the turn of Zan and Blers

vain attempt to got rid of Milton W.
Weldler from the office of Deputy Audi
tor, and of Thomas Hulme from the ofllce
of Plumbing Inspector. The latter at
tempt has made a fight between His Hon
or and the Council, and the legislative
body will probably pass an ordinance over
the Mayor's veto, giving the office to

the Municipal League. The three gentle
men are very, very sore, especially Pow

Buckley is a brother-in-law. or something
of the kind, of General Klllfeather, a re

at all pleased with the treatment accord

brethren are wondering where Daggett
came from, and whence his pull.
Park Board Is Xext.
The next board that seems fated for de
capitation is the Park Board, composed
of L. L. Hawkins, Ion Lewis, J. D. Mey
er and T. L. Eliot. The patronage at the
disposal of this board is not so valuable,
however, as that of the Health Board, or
the Water Board; still, the position of
Parkkeeper. held by Herman Lowltz, pays
$90 a month, and is sufficient to excite the
cupidity of a number of worthies.
But the Water Board has more fatness
in its keeping. The $250 monthly stipend
of Superintendent Dodge and the. $130
monthly stipend of Engineer Clarke would
be prized highly by offlcesekers. But in
asmuch as the present Water Bdard is
dominated by Influences that worked for
Lane's election, it is" generally supposed
that it will not be dismissed, at least not
right away. W. M. Ladd. the head figure
on the board, contributed money to the
Lane campaign fund. L. A. Lewis and
S. E. Joseph! are affiliated elements that
worked for Lane's election.
Mayor Lane has said that he does not
at present contemplate changing the

of workingmen. The occasion Is under
the direction of the Federated Trades
Council, which embraces 42 unions, "and
Invitations have been Issued to the eight
or nine organizations which are outside
of the council. There will be no tiresome
parade or long-drawn-out programme, but
the laborers and their families will gather
at Cedar Park and pass a pleasant day,
with a literary programme. Interspersed
with sports, music and dancing.

Trial of Joc Young; tor the Crime 1m
Set for Tuesday, nnd Chnae
F. It. Chase, bartender for Kaspar
Van Dran. the only man who was an
eyewitness to the shooting: when Joe
Young; tried to kill Van Dran, has dis
appeared and the detective force of the
Portland police department is anxiously
looking for him. Chase is the most im
portant witness for the prosecution,
nnd as the trial of Young- Is set for
next Tuesday every effort will be made
to capture the man before he has dis
appeared. Chase has been acting as
night bartender for Van Dran. He was
an Important witness at the Coroner's
Jury wTien the murder of Mrs. Van
Dran was being Investigated. He and
Van Dran are said to be the only two
who knew where the ginger ale was
stored which was drunk by Mrs. Van
Dran one month ago last night. Chase
was practically the only confident of
Van Dran outside the police, and knew
the history of the Van Dran family
since they came to Oregon.
Detective Vaughn, who has beon
working- constantly on the Van Dran
murder, has been assigned by Chief
Grltzmacher to locate Chase and bring
him to Portland. Chief Grltzmacher
and Vaughn still entertain hopes that
the murderer of Mrs. Van Dran will be
found. No new theories, outside the
developments In the case last night,
have been advanced, and It -Is not
thought that Chase has iad anything
to do with the death of Mrs. Van Dran.
Chase Is a small man and is extremely
nervous, but he constantly refused to
s.y aaything, except to Van Dran, on
any phase of the murder mystery.

The much-talked -of "Baby Show" com
mences Tuesday. See announcement in
half-page advertisement on page 15 of this
issue. Music-lovers and musicians will
be proud to honor the occasion. The
oldest American piano, having a career of
over S3 years, unbroken by any failure or
lapse from the highest standard of excel
lence, is to be shown In Its newest and
most remarkable form, the "baby" grand;
the very smallest grand piano made. The
Chickering Company have finally accom
plished what was for a long time consid
ered impossible In plauo-bulldlng circles,
namely the reduction of the sire of grand
pianos without Impairing , tone quality and
durability, at the same time retaining to
a remarkable degree the volume of
the full concert grand size. The result
is the daintiest and most attractive piano
that the music world knows, and a piano
that any muslc-Iover Is In position to
possess. The price, as well as the size
of these Baby Grands, admit of this. The
Chickering quarter grand, as they are
technically known, do not weigh as much
us the Chickering upright piano." they do
not occupy any more space, and are not
so costly as the largest of the Chickering
The magnitude and the beauty -of the
display we are now making must be seen
to be appreciated. It Is the largest, as
well as the most interesting, ever made
on the Coast, if not in this country. Fair

Secretary of Board of Trade
Gives Up Position.
REASON FOR HIS ACTION
Some Talk Is Hud of Reviving the
Office of Honorary Secretary,
the Incumbent to Serve
- J. D. Lee has resigned his position' as
secretary of the Board of Trade, and the
selection of his successor and the aeceptr
ance of his resignation will be mattors to
come before the board at Its monthly
meeting Tuesday evening. '
Secretary Lee's resignation has been in
the hands of the board's executive com
mittee for several weeks, and. upon that
fact becoming known, various rumors
gained currency upon the street Much
speculation has been Indulged In as to
the causes leading up to the change.
Secretary Lee's Statement.
Secretary Le. when questioned yester
day regarding the matter, stated without
reservation that he had placed his resig
nation with the board several weeks ago.
He was surprised to learn that the fact
had become known and that It had ex
cited any comment.
"I learned some time ago," said Mr.
Lee, "that there was some talk among the
members-of the board of securing-an hon
orary secretary, who would serve with
out pay, and I at once said that I would
not stand in the way, and offered my res
IgnaUon. which will be considered at the
meeUng next Tuesday.
"The selection of my successor and the
basis upon which he will serve are mat
ters of which I know nothing. The board
will probably decide that when it meets."
G. TV. Allen, president of the Board of
Trade, stated that he was not aware of a
formal resignation of Mr. Lee. but admit
ted that a change would take place when
the board met. "I understand." stated Mr.
Allen, "that Mr. Lee. In tendering his res
ignation, was largely influenced by a de
sire to take a vacation a thing which he
has not had for several years."'
Rumor has had It that the office of
"honorary secretary." which formerly ex
isted In the organization, wold be re
vived and given to Paul W. Cusler, but
it Is stated on authority that this step
has not been definitely decided upon.
There exists strong opposition among the
members to an honorary secretary serv
ing without pay. It being believed by many
that the work of the office suffers In the
absence of a paid official. All Indications
are. howover, that if the office Is re
vived Mr. Custer will be the man so
lected. Secretary Lee is busily engaged in get
ting the afTairs and books of the society
ready to hand oyer to his successor.
BREAKFAST AT THE TAVERN
An attractive new feature of the Tav
ern's service has recently been added
