The Broadway bridge bond issue has
become the storm center for two different
varieties of litigation and the matter bids
fair to be extensively threshed out in the
courts shortly. A friendly suit was filed
yesterday against the city, asking a re
straining order apainst the issuance of
the bonds. But an unfriendly suit will
be filed either tomorrow or the next day,
asking the same thing.

will develop shortly. The complaint Is
now under course of preparation by At
torney R. R- Duniway' on behalf of Frank
Klernan and will be submitted to the
court with as little delay as possible.
The friendly suit filed yesterday was
for the purpose of settling a number of
disputed points. In his complaint Mr.
Buchtel sets forth a number of alleged
defects In the bridge bonding Issue. He
picks it to pieces In most unfriendly
manner, averring that It has serious
shortcomings. No notice. - he complains,
was given the electors of Portland that
such an election to decide the bonding
question was to be held. A second com
plaint is that the City Council did not
formulate the plan by ordinance but by
A.AitiAn ITiirther than that it Is
averred that the matter, In the form of a
proposed amendment to the charter, was ;
not proposed by initiative petition bear-
ing a sufficient number of names. Final- i

the burdens of the taxpayers, especially I

This complaint, throughout Is very
business-like. It was lodged admittedly
for the sole purpose of having the points
referred to passed on in court. By ob
taining a favorable ruling It was hoped to
rut at rest for all times the rumblings
of trouble that have surcharged the at
mosphere ever since the amendment
passed at the past city election.
Messrs. Duniway and KJernan, repre
senting the antl-brtdge element, claim
: to be very much dissatisfied with the
friendly suit and for that reason will put
through one of their own. Mr. Dunlway
was at the Courthouse shortly after the
friendly complaint was filed to 'look It
"That will not do at all." he asserted.
"That doesn't set out all the weaknesses
of the proposition. It doesn't go into
1 the law at all and we do not intend to
. let the issue rest upon any such suit.
Among: additional defects that will be
set up in the unfriendly suit is one to the
effect that the preliminary steps In the
evolution of the bridge Issue were Irregu
lar In that they were not carried out
within the period prescribe by law.

Offensive Breath and Stomach Gasea
Cannot Exist When They Are Used.
Charcoal, by virtue of Its porous na
ture, takes up gases mechanically just
as a sponge takes up water. Its ca
pacity In this respect is in proportion
to the number and fineness of its pores.
Charcoal made from poplar, beechwood,
vegetable Ivory, cocoa-nut shells and
willow-wood, Is a compact, heavy sub
stance, having a metallic luster, the
pores being quite Invisible.
Chemical tests of various kinds-performed
by expert chemists have re
vealed the fact that charcoal made from
willow wood, is not " only absolutely
harmless, but that It is by far the most
powerful absorbent of .all kinds of
gases. Certain other woods, mentioned
above, are used by some manufacturers
in making charcoal, and besides not
being half as effective in absorbing
Btomach-gases, have also been found to
be positively harmful to the digestive
Willow-wood charcoal Is, then, the
Very best for the purpose of absorbing
excessive gas of the stomach, removing
Intestinal flatus, and purifying foul
breath. Charcoal to be effective against
gastric flatulence must be Introduced
among the gases of the, Btomach In the
same state as when, fresh from the
crucible. The means of effecting this
Is to compress them Into soluble loz
enges, so that after being dissolved In
the mouth and swallowed, the char
coal Is "set free," and at once begins
its work of oxidizing and absorbing
foul gases, and also, through Its anti
septic properties, of purifying the en
tire alimentary tract.
It is definitely known that the ab
sorbent and cleansing action of char
coal Is protracted and continued
through the intestinal syBtem as well
as In the stomach, and it proves bene
ficial there also.
IN STUART'S CHARCOAL LOZENGES
we have a gas-absorbing remedy which
r6adlly takes precedence over all others.
The charcoal used in them is the very
best that can be obtained. They are
composed of the finest young willow
wood, converted into charcoal by the
special, carbonizing Stuart Process, and
before being compressed into Lozenges,
the powdered charcbal is rendered
sweet and thoroughly agreeable to the
taste by being mixed with pure honey,
and the result Is a product equally as
palatable as candy.
Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges have at
tained a wide popularity among the
people, millions of boxes being sold
every year. They have, over and over
again proven their efficiency as rapid
and powerful absorbents of foul
stomach-gases, relieving and curing
flatulence, belching, or the eructation
of gases, and finally in the purification
of offensive breath.

from your druggist for 25 cents and

A GROWING INDUSTRY
About three years ago V. E.
Campbell, then residing In
Goldendale, Washington, ex
hibited in the office of The
Oregonian his first Automatic
Gas Cut-off, mention of which
was made In the columns of
this paper at the time, and
later the same device was at
tached to a'jet in the offlce of
the Portland Gas Company, in
this city, and was also demon
strated during the last, few
days of the Lewis and Clark
Exposition In the space occu
pied by the Fairbanks-Morse
Company, in the Machinery
Patents having been ob
tained on the device, a com
pany was organized for the
purpose of manufacturing the
devices, with a capital stock
of J500.000, and Portland was
decided on as the city in which
to develop the Industry.
The attention of certain
Californlans having been
called to the Invention, Mr.
Campbell was Invited to visit
San Francisco, for the purpose
of demonstrating the utility of
the device, with a view, if
found practicable, of enlisting
capital In the enterprise. The
visit was made and the device
tested thoroughly by O. M.
Tupper, Light and Water In
spector; W. C. Hassler, Chief
Sanitary Inspector, and T. J.
Farrell. ;Chief Plumbing In
spector, of that city, who each
gave strong indorsement of
the device as a life and gas
saving appliance, and one that
would make accidental gas as
phyxiation absolutely impossi
ble. Within twa days after
the final test was so made and
promises of ample capital had
been secured, San Francisco
was devastated by the earth
quake, and Mr. Campbell es
caped, but all his models and
devices were lost, and any fur
ther effort at San Francisco
The company again took up
the work, which has been
pressed forward as fast as
conditions made It possible,
and now the company has pur
chased all of block 16, at the
corner of Twenty-second and
Thurman streets, with a three
story factory building, cover
ing a floor space o( 23,520
square feet and equipped with
the best tool and die-making
machinery on the Pacific
The company has a large
force of skilled mechanics em
ployed In designing and mak
ing all the special tools and
machines necessary to manu
facture these Automatic Cut
offs, to be applied to both gas
and gasoline burners, on which
they have secured many pat
ents in this and foreign coun
tries, and will soon be turning
out these safety appliances in
Practically every part of these devices will be manufactured here, and a large force of skilled and unskilled
labor will be constantly employed.
The officers and directors are all well-known business men, and the future prospects of this company ap
pear without a cloud. . .fc ,,'
The company made an exhibit of their devices as applied to gas-burners and gasoline stoves, in the Ma
chinery Hall at Seattle during the A-T-P Exposition, and was awarded the highest award gold medal lor all
of their automatic devices, a cut of which appears for the first time in todays Issue of this paper.
The company has withdrawn Its stock from sale while selling 100 per cent above par, and Portland holders
of this stock are being congratulated on their investment.
