Causps Bitter Words to
Fly Fast
Ike Mayor Is Standing Pat
Rumor of JQlncr's
'. Hottvcs.
The fight of the Law Enforcement
League U waxing warmer. Some new ele
ments have been introduced In tne cam
paign. First the light was on between
the advocate of purity, as against the
. exponents of unrestricted vice and law
lessness! Now two factions on the side
of morality have been arrayed against
each other. Rev. Hill has Jumped on the
work of the Enforcement League with
both feet, and made accusations of insin
cerity on the part of Mr. Lord and his
followers. Mr. Lord retaliates and aald
soma thingi which were harsh. The law
breakers, meanwhile, are wearing ex
pansive smiles.
Strongly Denounces Utterances of
Mayor and Dr. Hill.
In an interview this morning, Mr. Lord
stated: "When the Enforcement League
planned its campaign against vice, and
for the enforcement of the laws. It looked
for opposition on the part of the law
breakers and the people upon whom the
blow would fall. It did not 'figure that
the officials at the head of the adminis
tration and the church would rally to
the side of lawlessness and vice. The
Mayor and Rev. Hill have taken an at
titude which ean In no logical manner
be construed as being in favor of the en
forcing of laws or the suppression of
vice. We looked to these people for
staunch support In the effort to bring
about conditions more satisfactory to th
public and the reducing of vice and
abuses of law to a minimum
, "The utterances of the clergy as repre
sented by the Rev. Hill, and the talk at
the Mayor place them on the side of the
gamblers, and In favor of the unrestrlct-.
ed liberties of the vicious element. It Is
gratifying that they have come to the
front and defined their positions. The
League, with these people on record,
knows where It Is at, and has a better
understanding how to wage the war.
From the looks of things, we have a foe
in the administration, the gambling, sa
loon and vicious elements, fes well as the
church who are the so-called exponents
of morality and order.
The League Is right. The laws of the
land uphold It. But greatest of all. Is
the law, of righteousness. If the League
is wrong in Its crusade, then the fabrlo
of all government Is rotten; the Bible Is
a farce; the olergy a fake, and virtue a
mockery. The League does not think that
this is the case. It believes that vn this
city are men and women of sincerity,
honor and firmness of purpose who will

few whs are the avowed representatives
of the public and the church have put
themselves on record, It is believed that
they do not expound the underlying sen
timents1 of their followers."
The Divine Attacked by Mr. Lord
Remains Skeptical.
"I think the less said about the letter
which Mr. Lord wrote to a morning paper
the better," said Dr. Edgar p.. Hill In an
swer to a query from a Journal reporter
today. , "In. fact," continued the reverend
gentleman, '1 do not think that It Is en
titled any notice whatever, i stated to
the publio that, Mr. Lord's league' was
a wolf in sheep's clothing and, behold,
the beast immediately begins to growl.
"Regarding the personailUeaof Mr.
Lord's ill-considered epistle I have noth
ing' to say. The letter, itself explains
them, but as far as his statements regard
ing his intended league,. Its object and
membership I may be pardoned for re
taining the strongest doubts; Mr. Lord
tates that the president of his league- (s
George H Kilner, but no aueb-name ap
pears in thecltyirtctory, and he la
frobabTy""a man of straw. Mr. Lord,
who lav advertising himself extensively,
claims that while his league has a large
I nd active membership of the 'beat peo
ple,' he has never met any of them and
will not give their names. Surely the ob
jects of the league as set forth by the
tnthuslastlc attorney, are laudable
inougfc for any person connected with the
nbvement to allow his connection to be

Mayor Williams Determined to En
force City
Mayor Williams Ip a determined as
ever that there shall be no backward step
In the effort to enforce the ordinances of
the city, and that all ordinances of the
city shall be rigidly enforced. ' The oath
he took in assuming the office of Mayor
obligates him as an official to see to-it
that they sr. enforced and he la deter-,
mined tnaf it shall never be said of him
that he was derelict in his duty. The
Mayor was very free to talk of his posi
tion this morning. When asked for an
expression; on putting the slot machines
out of commission, he said: '
"I am giving it noattenUon. ' I have
enough to do to attend to the enforcement
of the city ordinances and that I am go
ing to do without fear or favor. There is
no ordinance against slot' machines or
saloon closing. - They are regulated by
state law and there are state officers to
see to their enforcement. I have enough
to do Without taking up matters where
there are others whose duty It la o en
force them."
When asked for an expression on Chas.
Lord and his reform league, he said he
did not care to express himself. '
"Do you think the Common Council Is.
giving you the support it should in your
effort to suppress gambling and dens of

Filed With the City Auditor in
1891 to Enforce the Laws.
In looking rrer some old papers this
morning the clerks In the City Auditor's
office came across a petition which was
filed In 188L At that time there was a
movement to enforce the laws the same
as there Is at the present time, and the
petition which was signed by several
thousand people regardless of race, color
or party affiliation, asked the Common
Council to take action to cause an en
forcement of the law. Many of those who
signed the petition have passed" to" their
reward, some have fallen from the
straight and narrow path, and others
have risen to positions of Influence.
The petition read as follows: . .
"We,, the undersigned legal voters In
the City of Portland, do hereby pray
that you may each and all take auch
steps immediately that the Sunday laws
of the State of Oregon shall go into oper
ation In this city."
Councilman Zimmerman, who was pres
ent when the petition was found, suggest
ed that it might be again presented to
the Council for consideration in view of
tlio movement for a closed town.
The "paper 'will be filed away In the
archives of the office as It Is not thought
It will be of any use' In the present fight

A rumor has been given ourrency, that
President Kilner, f the Lav Enforce.
ment Leeague. has ulterior motives in
the waging of the campaign. It has been
stated that a man named Schmltt, who
purchased the cash nlckel-in-the-slot ma
chines from Cohen, is In some way close
ly related to Mr. Kilner, and that the
wave has for its ' object the bringing
about of a reaction which will result in
re-establishing these devices. It Is well

can again be placed before the public,
thousands upon thousands of dollars will

Charles Lord, when asked about the
matter, stated: "This rumor probably
originated from the fact that Schmltt is
a client of mine on a matter' that has
b-lntlgrfio--e-the-past-yeaTp hr
connectlon with, some business in the
Bast Someone has evidently jumped at
the conclusion that thhT was the missing
link to establish what they do not know
about the Law Enforcement League. I
don't think that Mr. Kilner is even ac
quainted with Mr. Schmltt. I cannot un
derstand by what method of reasoning or
deduction anyone oan figure out that the
way to open up a town is by enforcing
the laws for dosing It. The only reao
tlon that could possibly occur, if any,
would be a tendency toward laxity on the
publio necessity line. By closing gamb
ling of every description it will establish
more strongly than ever that this is a
matter" that can be dispensed with. The
contention that our move is to bring
about a revulsion of feeling by enforcing
of the laws is not Worthy the considera
tion of anyone of Intelligence. It would
be just as reasonable to say that the laws

forced In order that the laws will be
abolished and offenders allowed to com
mit crimes free from molestation."
On Saturday Attorney Lord sent Sheriff
Stctrey a notice that liquor was being
sold on Sunday, and that the section un
der which to act was 1909 of the Code of
Oregon. The Sheriff made reply this
rooming that he had Informed the grand
jury on Saturday that all places where
liquor Is sold contrary to law, are run

to 4ie letter of the Sheriff, In which he

Big Plans.
Scllwood to Madison Street 'May
Be a Continuous Line of
Smokestacks. I
The Oregon Water Power and Railway
Company's plans, as they are unfolded
to the public, take on- greater propor
tions than was at first Known, for a
total of about 13,000,000 will be expended,
md the result may be to bring to pass
Industrial conditions that will develop a
continuous line of smokestacks from the
Madison street bridge to Sellwood, a dis
tance of. three miles.
The company proposes a new line ex
tending forty miles from Portland to
Sprlngwater, which will be a partensjrer
and freight road, and bring into close
touch with Portland a region, that has
heretofore been practically cut off from
convenient access to the city. Thousands
of people live therein, and will experience
Immediate Increase of valuation of prop
erty; Indeed, such Increase having Al

Improvements to "'be made by the com
pany. The people of that country, will be able
to ship to Portland immense quantities
of farm produce and stuff from the dairy,
enriching Portland and themselves,. '
A sawmill has already been located at
Sellwood on account of the Oregon Water
Power and Railway Company's proposed
extensions, and other Improvements with
out number await the completion of the
proposed line.
Here in Portland the cumpany Will have
spacious docks, and will bring Into the
city an enormous quantity of electric
power to be furnished to people who de
sire to establish Industries of all klncia.
"The" company's plans Involve such Im
provements as have been told of In the
papers from time to time, as well as the
filling of an immense tract of land that
will be filled at a cost of 25 cents on the
dollar, compared with the cost that would
be entallei if unusual prices be charged
for the work. Land now unused and
useless, and other land on wntch. there
must be piling and consequently high
rates of Insurance on buildings, will be
brought Into use for various industries.
And, all in all, the company's plans prom
ise a new era for the city and the water
front Interests.
There will be a dock 1,000 feet long;,
and every convenience connected with
The company has bought Its own right
of way over the three miles It runs
through the city, and lacks only a right
to build Its new Sprlngwater line across
about six or eight blocks In Wator street
on the East Side. EySiy other foot of
ground (o be used has been purchased
outright without the asking of any privil

land and Phyadelphla bankers, who are
sponsors for the Oregon Water Power
and Railway Company, have manifested
a liberal disposition towards Oregon and
