Portland's City Election.
The result of the city election in Portland
Monday was a complete victory forh'gh 1
cerse and the friends of law and order, says
the Orcgonian. The cheap whisky men have
been foiled at every point. The desperate
efforts made to secure a reverse of the
decree of the Circuit Couit for Multnomah
Ounty in the Supreme Court have ended
in failure. All the schemes and combina
tions made to endeavor to offset the action
of the Supreme Court by electing to the
Council friends of cheap whisky who would
repeal the high license ordinance have re
united in iguommious defeat, m fact, it
was a regular v ater loo lor the free whisky
man. The high license ordinance is just
beginning to develop its beneficial workings.
The number of saloons is decreasing, and it
is i:o longer possible for any scallawag who
cm procure a jug of whisky, two barrels
and a board, to blossom out into a "well
respected liquor merchant" and become a
