EXPERTING THE COUNTY BOOKS.
A number of months have passed alnce
petition was filed with the County Court
lor the appointment t experts to exam
ine the book, of the Sheriff's office, It la
understood that an expert or experts will

The City Auditor, Mr. Devlin, is work
ing on an ordinance designed to prevent
fraud in the laying of cement sidewalks,
and to protect the property holder. The
executive committee has gone oVer the
matter oarefully and it la believed that
the ordinance, when completed, will go far
towards remedying a number of abuses
about which much complaint has been
THE CORNELL ROAD.
It baa been stated that the railroad from
SUllaboro, about which so much has
been aald In the papera, haa applied for
or been granted by the County Court a
right of way over a portion of the county
road known aa the Cornell road. This
road la not only one of the most beautiful
drives around' Portland, but one very
largely used, and a railroad running over
It would be very Injurious and dangerous.
The attorney for the league has received
Instructions to look Into the matter and
report what, if anything, haa been done.
The members of the league so far as they
can will do all in their power to keep
this road clear of railroad tracks. ,
CLEAN STREETS AND CLEAN SIDE
WALKS. The Civio Improvement Association is
actively engaged in trying to bring about
the results indicated by the above title.
In their efforts they have not only the
sympathy of the members of the league,
but will have their active assistance. The
present condition of our streets and side
walks la Jnexdusable, iut we seem to be
a long way from the goal when such acta
of vandalism, are permitted as the open
and shameless destruction and damaging
of the beautiful shade trees on Everett
street during the uast week. However,
the league will keep at It, knowing that
onoe people realize what cleanliness
rneana, there will never be a backward
movement. Instead of having their ef
forts belittled by the authorities, they
should be glad to have the unselfish as
sistance of the members ' of the Civic
Association. The league hope their re
quest for an officer to look after the side
walk nulsanoes will be granted.
' The extraordinary cost of this branch
of the county government Is still before
the league and It la believed that tae
County Court will take such steps that
this expense will be largey reduced In

A number of other matters are being
considered, out at present are not far
enough along for publication.
The attorney for the league is hard at
Work on bills which will be recoWlfended
to the members from this county for their
consideration and action. They are all
of general interest, a list on which work
Is now being done la aa follows:
Expenditures. "An act limiting the
maximum of expenditures by the coun
ty and further limiting the expenditures
to the levy made."
This has been found to work well, on
the whole; in the administration of the
city's affairs, and no reason haa been
suggested why a limit would not b"
equally efficacious with the county. As
the law now stands, the levy may be
law, but there is no limit on the expend
itures, and in consequence, until the.
year is out and reports in, 'the cost of
running the county is not known.
Tax Collecting "An act to make the
County Treasurer Tav Collector.
. JlJtbUejrjed-l04tihla w4H tend-ttrrwr

County Commissioners. "An amend

Henderson Won't Go to
MAY ' ELECT BOIES
Senator Banna Gets Demonstrative
During Conference at
DEB MOINES, la.. Sept 17 "My de
cisloa la final. I cannot acquiesce in the
administering of free trade poison in or
der to cure the trust evil, which I abhor."
This Is the reply of Speaker Henderson
wired to Lafe Young in answer' to a tele
gram which he, in conjunction with 8. W.
Kathburn, sent to the Speaker pleading
with him to re-enter the race.
Speaker Henderson positively refuses to
reconsider his withdrawal from the Con
gressional race for a moment He as
serts emphatically that owing to the'fact
that his views regarding the treatment
cf the trusts by reducing the tariff in
whole or part are not in accord withvthe
views of many 6f his party in Iowa, he
cannot accept the nomination tor Con
gress. In declining the nomination
Speaker Henderson wrote to the chair
man or the convention, in part, as fol
lows: '81ncf my return to the district, I hive
made a careful study as to the sentiment
in the district anl state, and I believe
that there is no little sentiment and a
growing one, among Republicans, that I
do not truly represent their views on the
tnrifr question Believing this condition
to exist, and knowing that I do not agree
with many of my people that the trusts
to which I am and have been opposed
can be curbed or the people benefited by
free trade, in whole or in part I must de
cline to accept the nomination so grac
iously and enthusiastically made."
ADDRESS TO VOTERS.
Speaker Henderson has also directed an
address to the voters of the Third Iowa
district in which he says:- "For the past
three years I have advocated giving con
trol of trusts to Congress. In my opin
ion proper supervision can never be had
until Congress haa power to treat1 them.!.
Ile also cays that" he Is a firm believer in
reciprocity and protection that will pro
tect labor and industry, and that he is
"against wicked corporations that would
trample on the rights- of people to fair
play and the fruits of honest efforts." .
Speaker Henderson waa elected to Con
gress in 1882 and has served continuously
ever since. He wan elected as Speaker of
the House In 1899 and re-elected in 1901.
MAY ELECT BOISE. '
WASHINGTON, Sept 17.-The only
topic of conversation here today is -the
refusal of Speaker Henderson to accept
the nomination for Congress at the hands
of the Iowa Republican convention. (Dem
ocrats are jubilant and believe .that the
election of Boise to Henderson's seat in
Congress is assured.
Political leaders here are of the opinion ,
that Burton, of Ohio, may succeed Hen
derson as Chairman of the Rivers and
Harbors Committee, although Hepburn,
of Iowa, is considered as a strong fight
Considerable comment is being made by
leaders in both the Democratic and Re
publican parties regarding the statement
of Speaker Henderson, when asked for his
reason for refusing the nomination, in
which he said:
."My letter to Chairman; Albrook is the
whole thing ln a- nutshell. You cannot
kill the trusts by applying tree trade
without killing our own industries. The
foreign trusts are fighting the American
trusts, and I do not believe that for the
purpose of controlling American trusts,
we should make a market for foreign
trusts, thereby crushing out the Industries
of this country. After my conference last
Saturday at Waterloo, hearing the views
of the Chairman of my district I con
cluded that my views on the tariff ques
tion were at variance with those of my
paray, and I did not desire to appear In a
false position. r
WASHINGTON, Sept. 17. In tha con
ference, held with the President yester
day at Oyster Bay, Senator Hanna Was
inclined to get boisterous at times when
the tariff question' was being discussed.
Those who attended the conferenoa were
President Roosevelt Postmaster-General
Payne, Senators Hanna, Spooner, Allison,
Aldrlch and Lodge. The object of the
coming together of these Republican
leaders was to arrange the policies to be
taken up in the coming national cam
paign. Senator Henna Is quoted as saying: "Aa
long as I remain In the Senate, and can
raise a hand to stop you. you shall never
touch the schedule of the tariff act"
The parties to the conference were very
reticent after they returned from Saga
more Hill, but it can be stated on reliable
authority that It was decided to make no
attemnt to revise the tariff at the coming
aession of Congress; that the President
Is to maintain his position as to the
trusts, and further that ha Is to Insist
on his demand for reciprocity with Cuba.
It Is 'understood -that he will fully uui-
llne his policy regarding this latter ques
tion in some of the speeches he la to
make on his Western trip. It also can.
be stated on excellent authority that the
eoal strike was not disco seed.
The President's purpose la having this
conference waa to ascertain If there had
been any marked political changes la the
different sections of the' country during .
the past year. . . V - -."' .

Heavy Losses in the Business
Heart of the Town.
(Jeurnal Special Service.)
OOLDENDALE, Wash., Sept. 17.-The
second great fire in the history of this
place occurred yesterday morning, and
another large section of the town, com
prising the best part of a block In Its very
heart, Is as clean as a floor. The build
ings lost Include both the leading hotels,
the Central and the Goldendale, which
stood on opposite corners of the half
block, and between them, on the west and
north sides, more than a dozen larger or
smaller stores and business places. In
cluding the poBtofflce.1 All were wooden
struotures, most of them two stories high,
and those streets were solidly built up.
Every one of these are gone. Insurance
is generally small, aa the rate is very
high owing to the deficient water supply.
The loss is not so heavy a blow to the
town as the former Jire of several years
ago. That was In the main a benefit, as
numerous buildings were rebuilt of brick,
which will be the case now.
By far the heaviest loss falls on County
Treasurer A. H. Ahola, owner of the Cen
tral Hotel,He and Mrs. Ahola had only
returned that day from Portland, where
they had made numerous purchases In
Improvement of the hotel. It had just
been completely overhauled, and they had
also just put in an expensive acetylene
gas plant. The very day of their return
from Portland they were to see their all
licked up in flames. They will, however,
rebuild at once.
Had there been a wind, the whole town
on the south side of Main street would
have been destroyed.
