REVENGE THUS WREAKED
Captains and Others Who Told the

Punished by Mayor.
MAYOR XAXE AND BBUXX HAVE
"While wholesale changes have been
ordered to take place In the police
department tomorrow, under the
same good of the service" that ha
abolished civil service In Portland
UBder Mayor Lane, the real purpose
underlying the act is revenge upon
officers who have dared to assist in
making complete the expose of
alleged civil service. Many are
affected by the change, but the Hien
who are to be punished, and the rea
sons therefor, are as follows:
ratrolman Quintan to be shifted
from station duty to "graveyard
watch" because he dared to assist in
exposing the administration.
Patrolman Isakson to be shifted
from flnt relief to "graveyard
watch" because he dared to go into
court to oust Bruin.
Captain Bailey to be shifted from
day patrol to "graveyard watch"
because of friction between himself
and Chief Gritzmachcr.
Sergeant Taylor to be kept on day .
patrol and thus separated from Cap-'
tain Ballsy because Mayor Lane and
Bruin suspect Bailey of advising Tay
lor to take the stand and help to
expose the administration.
As a matter of fact, the changes
arc simply an aftermath of the thor
ough expose that has Just been made
of Mayor Lane's Clx'il Service Com
mission and himself by the select
committeo of the City Council, and
furnish a means of exhaust for the
pressure of wrath that has filled the
breasts of Lane and Bruin because
of the expose.
. The "graveyard watch" is the
dreaded lonely vigil from midnight
until morning the most unsought re
lief of all.

Two Important Cfoaaeoe.
Another .important ch&pjge noted ia
the order is that John A. G-oltz i to Ve
shifted from his position as Municipal
Court bailiff to patrol -duty o the nrst
relief. Mounted Patrolman Circle is
named to become bailiff. Against this
contemplated cJjange. Judge Cameron
aad Deputy City Attorney Titag-erald
will eater protest, and If possible, cau
the police officials to leave Goltz as
bailiff. Goltz la trained in the court
work, hoA'lng- served about two years.
He Js particularly desirable fer the
place, because he Is a srood German
interpreter, and. oftcfl assists in cases
of necessity in handling German cases,
of which there are quite a number every
Another change worthy of special
mention is the shifting of Patrolman
Oscar F. Isakson from the first relief
to the "graveyard watch." He Is the
officer who dared to go Into court In
an effort to oust Patrick Bruin from
the position of Captain of Detectives
and Inspector of Police, and this Is
where Isakson "gets hi.

Declares There Are Millions In Hem
lock Timber After Exploiting
This, Will Invent Perpetual
. Motion Machine.
Miss Lena S. Walton, the Alaskan min
ing Queen, was a guest at the Hotel
Portland yesterday. TVhea seen yester
day afternoon. Mke Walton said she had
been dabbling In the Umber business for
dlverstea, the coasuBuaaUon of big
mlalag deals having become a Mttle
wearisome to her. Miss "Walton says she
has mador millions of dollars within the
last eight years, and she expects to make
many wore milHons within the next few
years. She says she is rated on Wall
Street at JS.COO.000. which he declare
Is a mere drop In the bucket- Miss Wal
ton now lives In Tacoma. where she is
promo tl Eg a big tin smelter, with which
she expects to revolutionize the tin in
dustry of the world.
"About my only enjoyment In life Is to
look after my business Interests, and
when I am la search of recreation I
switch off onto something else," said
Mis Walton at the Hotel Portland. "For
years I have been closely following the
development of Alaska, but It became a
little monotonous, so I became a timber
cruiser for diversity. Two months ago I
could hrdly tell a pine tree from a feur
leaf clover, but now I can give some of
these would-be or so-called timber sharks
cards and spades on the business. It all
goes to show that I was intended to be
a business woman.
"This little recreation of Indulging in
the timber business has done me good,
and I am fast regaining my health and
my spirits. I will go back to the mining
Interests with renewed -vitality and en
ergy. Do you know I sometimes become
disgusted with the short-sightedness of
men. Lumbermen arc supposed to be
smart, but they are several hundred
years behind the times. I have been in
the lumber business but two months, but
1 have made a discovery that would net
me millions if I should stick to It. But
there is more money to be made in the
3IilIIoris in Hemlock.
"For years the lumbermen of the West
have been passing up hemlock timber,
giving it as wide a berth as though they
thought It was a gold brick proposition.
But there are millions in it. Millions. I
say, and yet it Is said that the lumber
men are up to date. Hemlock makes the
prettiest and most attractive furniture
on earth, and some day they will realize
"Seeing what possibilities there were in
hemlock, I purchased 15.C0O,CO feet of H
the other day. I then bad some furni
ture made of hemlock, shipped to some
Eastern capitalists and within a week I
had' disposed of my holdings for double
the money. I made still another purchase
and expect to sell It this time for more
than three times the amount I paid for it
But the mining business is calling me,
and I must go back to It."
Then Miss Walton recited long tales
of her deeds in high finance which would
have made John D. Rockefeller and Rus
sell Sage blush because of their insig
nificance, compared with the raining
Queen of Alaska.
"You will pardon me. but really I am
a woman of great initiative and inven
tive powers." she continued. "Years ago
I was In a wreck and came near being
laid to rest in a watery grave, because
of a rotten and poorly constructed life
preserver. I immediately aet my wits
to working and invented one to salt my
self. "Did you ever see my life-preserver?
Why a person could live in It for days in
the roughest kind ef weather and have
a thoroughly enjoyable time. It Is of
rubber and light canvass and entirely
covers a person. There is plenty of room
in It for provisions and even delicacies.
When In It your head just sticks out of
the water. Of course, the rubber is over
your head, and you see out of glasses.
When you want fresh air you Just raise
your arms and spread your fingers, which
sucks in the -air. When you close your
fingers the holes- close. I am never
afraid to go on sea trips when I have

ber for the Kew Year will be

morning. It will be an issue of
36 pages only, but the paper
will be replete with informa
tion of the railroad develop
ment of Oregon, Washington
and Idaho. The territory em
braced within these three
. states will be the scene of the
most important railroad de
velopment work in the United
States during 1906. The New
Yekr's Oregonian will give the
fullest and most accurate in
formation of plans evolved
by managers of the great trunk
systems of the country for
heavy construction work in
these states during 1906. What
the construction of these ex
tensive lines will do for Port
land will be clearly shown.
Incidental to this, the New
Year's number will make, ex
tensive news mention of the
Government's great work in
efforts that will insure a min
imum depth of 40 feet of
water at the entrance to the
Columbia River. These artir
cles will be accompanied by
effective illustrations which
will show present progress of
work at the Columbia's mouth.
