Many stories have been written
about men who act quickly and act de
cisively and many times the critical
periods In the lives or such men have
been dramatized, but neither fiction's
brightest page nor the drama's most
brilliant plot has revealed such daring
and deliberate enterprise as that con
ceived and boldly carried out by the
Portland theatrical man and hotel
magnate who, between the hours of
12:30 and 9:30 Friday morning origi
nated the idea of building a street
railway on Seventh street, secured the
necessary financial backing, prepared
the required legal documents and pre
sented their plan to the City Council.
Embarking into the street railway
business was farthest from Mr. Hellig's
mind, when, in company with William
T. Pangle, he entered the Oregon
Grille after the theater Thursday
night. At the tabLe where they had
lunch the theatrical pair soon were
joined by M. C. Dickinson, one of the
proprietors of the hotel. They talked
about plays and baseball and poll
tics and various other subjects of Im
mediate interest, when suddenly Mr.
Dickinson, without much apparent con
"Say, CaU what do you think of this
.Seventh-street franchise business any
"It's Just like this, 'Dick.". answered
Mr. Heilig, "George Heusner seems
mighty anxious to get that franchise.
It looks to me that he expects to make
a good thing out of it," he added. '
Heusner Franchise Arouses.
Then there was a pause, during which
neither man said anything. After a lit
tle more pause the hotel man finally
"Now, look here, CaV accompanied
by a violent thump on the table with
his fist. "If It's worth while for Heusner
to get this franchise for nothing, why
Isn't It worth something to Seventh
street business men?"
"It might be, but how are we to get

"No. But supposln' we get Into It?"
"I'm with you, Dick. Tou can count
me In on anything that will keep an
interurban line off Seventh street. It
would spoil business on the whole street
from the river to the Heights." -
Then there was a few minutes of hur
ried consultation, at the end of which
it was found that the Council would
meet at :30 the following morning. To
get any action at all it was necessary
to act in a hurry. It waa 12:80 Friday
The first thing the hotel man did was
to ring up George N. Davis, a lawyer,
ask him to' come down to the Oregon
grill right away. Mr. Davis said he'd
come. Half an hour later he was
Then he called "Goldie" on the tele
phone. "Goldie,' who is otherwise
known as Monroe Goldstein, Mr. Dickin
son's right hand man.
"Do you know where Walter McKee
lives, or what his telephone number
is?" asked Mr. Dickinson in a violent
"Naw, I don't" replied "Goldie," quite
angrily, and went back to bed.
Ten minutes later the phone bell
again called "Goldie" out of bed.
Magnates Act Quickly.
"Come down here; I want you," the
voice of Mr. Dickinson commanded. Not
knowing whether a murder had been
committed or whether the house had
been burglarized, "Goldie" came, half
dressed and Bleepy.
"Where can we get a stenographer
real quick?" the hotel roan asked.
Upon Goldstein's suggestion they
called Miss Moore, the house stenog
rapher. She lives at the Wheeldon.
"How long will it take you to get
ready to come down here and take some
dictation?" Mr. Dickinson asked.
"All right, in five minutes I'll send
a cab up there for you." He pulled out
his stop watch.
"Now, then, we've got to have a
bond," suggested Mr. Heilig.
"Well, then, we'll call Karl Lively
and have him prepare one for us," an
swered Mr. Dickinson.
"How long will it take you to get
dressed?" was the greeting Mr. Lively
received on answering the telephone.
"In ten minutes. I'll have a cab in
front of your house. Come down here
right away. Goodby.'-
Now, Phil Metschan, of the Imperial
Hotel, and Mr. Dickinson, although
competitors in business, are close
"We'll have to let Phil in on this,"
suggested Mr. Dickinson. So he called
him on the phone.

showed a division of opinion aa to
drunkenness but stood unanimous in
the affirmative on tne question of cig

mlck of Sacramento, declared that
both 'intoxication and cigarette smok
ing are on the Increase. "My observa

an astonishing growth among women.
Two years ago It was not knownj

are on a par. It seems that this Is an
age of temptation.
Miss Caroline Barium, of Portland,
spoke on experiences she has had at
the Union Depot during several years
of work in protecting girls traveling
alone. She declared among other
things that the practice of sending
children alone on trains to strange
cities is growing and is constantly
requiring much work for women en
gaged in caring for such cases.
Last year the Y. W. C. a. department
workers at the depots handled 850
cases of this nature.

Yesterday morning the speakers
were Professor JF. G. Young, of the
department of sociology and econom

Dr. Mary Martin, of Seattle.- Follow
ing their addresses' the . convention
adopted the following resolutions:
The trreat need of protective work
for women and girls is everywhere rec

an efficient corps of women officers
with uniform methods and by co-operation
of the various cities and towns.
The permanency of such & department
and the qualifications of such officers
are of extreme importance to make the
work a success. We therefore make the

Aa the Democratic nominee for United States Senator in Oregon, on behalf of the
National Democratic) Oommitee I desire to extend to you my beBt wishes in your
oontest. I consider your election one of the most essential achievements. in
the pending campaign. Gov. Wilson's eleotioa to the Presidency by an over
whelming majority, is oertain. There is no doubt that we will oontrol the House
of Representatives by a great majority. It is desirable, therefore, that every
supporter of Wilson and Marshall should turn attention to the election of a
Democratic Senate,! and use every honorable means to promote suooesa of Demo
cratic candidates for the Senate. The oontrol of both houses of Congress will
insure the execution of policies for which Gov. Wilson and the. Democratic party
stand. I trust that every supporter of Gov. Wilson in Oregon will therefore
earnestly and enthusiastically support your oandldaoy. Please convey this
message to the Demodrats of your state and to all supporters of Gov. Wilson.

Office of Representative
A Few Facts for Conscientious Voters
He Is the Strongest
There is an evr increasing protest
among a large class of the voters of
this distriot against returning A. W.
Lafferty to Congress. If these voters
cast their votes for Judge Munly, Laf
ferty will certainly be defeated. A vote,
however, for any other oandidate Is one
half a vote for Lafferty. Do not allow
any one to persuade you that there Is
any oandidate in the field against Laf
ferty who Is so strong as Mr. Munly.
Such persuasions are urged In the in
terest of Lafferty.
Judge M. O. Munly has been a resi

years, and Is honest, loyal, of excep

An' interstate bridge Is soon to be
built across the Columbia River from
Multnomah County, Oregon, to Clark
County, Washington, and the expense
of this undertaking will have to be
borne by the taxpayers of those two
counties. Any appropriations in aid of
this bridge procured from Congress will
relieve the taxpayers, to that extent

Lafferty to Answer Traducers
Congressman A. W. Lafferty, regular nominee of both the Re
publican and Progressive parties for re-election, will epeak to the
people of the district every night this week. Those desiring to see
the skin removed from a few newspapers will not be disappointed.
With cold logic, admitted facts and dispassionate argument, Con
gressman Lafferty will meet the unsupported denunciation and
abuse of the hirelings of speoial privilege. The election of a Con
gressman in the Third District one week from Tuesday is the most
important political evnt that will happen in Oregon this year. The
result will tell whether the common people or the special interests
will rule under popular election laws. Every citizen is vitally in
terested in laws and measures that Congressman Lafferty has the
distinction of being the first citken and the first Congressman to
inaugurate or introduce. These measures mean a real oontrol of
monopolies and a real enforcement of laws already on the books in
favor of the people. With Lafferty s defeat it is safe to say that
future' Congressmen from this district would not be encouraged to
take np the same fights. Come out and hear Congressman Lafferty
at any or all of the meetings here advertised, and form your opinion
of the man first hand. Remember the dates, for Mr. Lafferty will
not have the money to print this advertisement again. Mr. Laf
ferty will speak at the Bungalow Theater, Twelfth and Morrison
streets, next Thursday night, October 31, at 8J.5 o'olock, which
date please remember and attend, especially if you live on the West
