Pump "Works Wem.. The automatic
pump that was put Into operation at the
Iowcr Mount Tabor reservoir the first of
the week, has been working; finely all
week. Power Is furnished from the water
from tho high service reservoir and the
pump operates without expense. It is in
the care of the reservoir tenders, wfo are
on duty at all hours. The operation of
the pumps at Paradise Springs, which
supplied the Arthur plant for the past 15
years, has been stopped for all time, hav
ing been replaced by the new pump at
reservoir No. 2. Very soon it will be
necessary to replace the old water tanks
that are used for the high, service at
Mount Tabor, as they are old and said
to be greatly decayed. It is believed that
If the city build a big reservoir on the top
of Mount Tabor and make it the termi
nus of the second Bull Run pipe line,
more than enough power could be gener
ated to supply Portland with its elec
tric light. It would be the same if tne
reservoir were placed on Mount Scott,
or on any elevation.

ALASKA MAY GO FOR TAFT
Big Secretary's Boom Outgrows the
Roosevelt Third-Terra Idea,.
. SEATTLE, Wash., Nov. 2. (Spe
cial.) There is seemingly only one
chance for a split In the ranks of the
Nome delegation to the Republican
convention to be held In Juneau, com
mencing November 14. In reports sent
out ahead of the delegates who now
are assembled In Seattle, it was stated
that the delegation would go to the
convention solid for Roosevelt for a
third term along with the Indorsement
of Tom Cale and a solid front for ter
ritorial government. Now comes a
whisper that Taft may receive the sup
port of so many of the delegates that
there is great doubt that the Roosevelt
third-term idea will ever fret before
Canvass among the delegates now
here has Indicated that many of them
have so fallen In love with the Taft
boom that they cannot be persuaded
Just where the Roosevelt third-term
Idea comes in. Taft is popular in
Alaska, and from all that can be gath
ered It may be assumed that if the
name of the big Secretary of War is
brought before the Juneau convention
there will be something doing that will
result in an indorsement of his can
didacy. SLOW IX INSPECTING WORK
Cheeks Returned ' Marked "Xo
Funds" Cause Small Scare.
ASTORIA. Or., Nov. 2. (Special.)
When work was stopped a few days ago
on the extension of the llwaco Railroad
& Navigation Company's line from llwaco
to the new terminus opposite this city, the
discharged employes were paid In checks
given by Erickson & Peterson, the con
tractors, and drawn on a Portland bank.
A number of these qhecks were cashed
by local business men and today they
were returned from the Portland bank
marked, "No funds." As near as can be
learned, the trouble arose because the
Oregon Railroad & Navigation Company,
which owns the road, had not checked up
the work done by the contractors and for
that reason had not deposited to the
credit of the contractors the amount due

Home Remedy to Kill Rats.
PORTLAND, Nov. 2. (To the Editor.)
The easiest way to kill rats is as
follows: Take one-half pound of best
wheat flour and mix well with one
pound of plaster of parls and then fill
a dish with water. Place both dishes
where rats are perambulating over
night. Next morning you will find the
rats all dead near the dishes, with
rocks In their stomachs. There Is no
danger of any poison. -

WOMAN'S UNION TO MEET
Quarterly Meeting Will Be Held To
Tomorrow afternoon the Portland
Woman's Union will hold its quarterly
meeting. Following business there will
be a social reunion, at which tea and
wafers will be served from a table pre
sided over by four or its past presi
dents Mrs. C. A. Coburn, Mrs. H. L.
Pittock, Mrs. C. R. Templeton and Mrs.
Henry E. Jones. Besides these there
hav'e been but two other presidents
during the term of over 20 years of
the union's existence the late Mrs.
Rosa F. Burrell and Mrs. P. J. Mann,
the present incumbent.
The union always has done a great
deal of work along educational and
philanthropic lines, at the same time
furnishing a homelike home to the
many young women who have from
time to time enjoyed Its hospitality.
The union's management has for
some time realized Its Inability to ac
complish all of ita aims, on account
of inadequacy of room, almost every
day some deserving- young woman Is
denied homelike shelter with only the
promise, of a place upon the waiting
list. Wlth Portland's rapidly-increasing
population the need of a larger
building Is strongly felt and many of
the members think .that ways and
means should soon be devised where
by a larger building may be had or the
present one made larger, that the ob
ject of the union's work can better
be accomplished. All members are cor
dially asked to be present at tomor
row's quarterly meeting, held at the
union's home, at 2:30 o'clock, 510
