. Owners of slot machines-, are anry
t the closing of their business by the
police after they had paid fines. K. O.
Magoon and, George Griffiths say they
supposed thac the fines paid for the
privilege, of operating the machines for
a. month.. Mr. Magoon said that If the
machines were not allowed to run there
would be a fight that would close all
gambling In the city, or would put the
machines on equal footing With other
gambling devices. ' " . , ' ,,
E. O. Magoon, who represents a Slot
machine company, said today: x
"The cry that slot machines are any
worse than other : sort of gambling la
all rot ' The idea that it la less of a
gamble to buy; a slug and place It in a
machine Instead of putting in the nickel
is childish., The slug represents a cash
.investment of a' nickel. . Chief Hunt
practically promised ; that money ma
chines would Joe . allowed to operate
providing that they would pay a fine of
$10 month each. On the basis of this1
promise I paid 1360 in fines. The nexd
day: he , ordered the machines closed.
That this, was the, understanding with
iho chief Is evidenced by the circum
stances', for If he had been fair and told
me he would not permit them to run it
is not likely that any sane man would
spend money for a privilege 'unless he
had reason to believe that It would be
granted him," ;. , . ; - v v.
Would Close All Gambling.
: "Unless things are patched up so that
we can run on some basis there will be
"something doing.' If we cannot run no
one else will.; It Is not fair , that . we
should . bo put out of ' business : and
others In but slightly, different lines are
permitted to violate the laws. The slot
machine men, : backed by the saloon
keepers who derive revenue from ma
chines, are a powerful combination, and
will not stand Imposition. It is a ques
tion of equal privileges for all, and no
favoritism for a few. If the war opens
It will result, in a closed town, or a
fair deal 'for everyone. The influences
that we control, especially Under the
present unsettled conditions will settle
open gambling in short order If it comes
to a question of war tothe knife."

' M., J. Cohn, identified with S. Morton
Cohn in the slot machine business, said:
"As far as our firm is concerned wa
are taking up all our machines and
storings themVe have no desire to
violate any laws, and will abide by the
policy of the administration. Wa can
not, make' any, money if the machines
are operated only on a trade basis. : It
would be impossible to keep people from
putting nickels into them, and it would
not pay to change the feed slots so that
only some particular kind of slug oould
be inserted. -
"I don't think that it is wise at this
.time 10 make any fight against the big
gamblers, for in my option the days
for open gambling in Portland are draw
ing to a close. The Judges that decided
on the mandamus proceedings brought
by the Municipal association are men
learned in the law, and I do not. think
that their decision will be reversed by
the supreme court. If, through some
"condition, the gamblers should continue
to' run under a system of fines it would
be ' no more than right', that, slot ma
chine's should be permitted to run under
proper restrictions, and we "Would un
doubtedly make an effort to have the
"I am as radically opposed as any
one to having machines in places where
boys are permitted to play, and think
that that should hot be tolerated. All
the sentiment against the machines orig
inated In the practice of unscrupulous
persons allowing minora to play in cigar
and confectionery stores," , . .
Frink Grlffltha, a slot machine man,
said: "I have many thousands of dol
lars Invested in, slot machines. Up to
three weeks ago they were all trade ma
chines, and everything . was running
smoothly. These machines . were not
paying a fins for the privilege of run
ning. The chief of police gave out the
information that slot machine owners
must pay fines the same as owners of
other gambling devices. The impres
sion was left that in this event the cash
machines . would be permitted to run.

by Health Officer Biersdorf, Portland's
'death rats during the last year shows
a decided improvement over, the preced
ing year. There were, fn 19 deaths to
the number of 1,161,'whleh, with an es
timated population of ,115.000 means a
death rats of 10.01 per 1,000, and in 1901
the deaths numbered only 1,207. The
' estimated population is 125,000, and,, t Us
means a death rate of 9.65 per 1,000.
Those figures give Portland, next to. the

Helena, Jan.. 2. One man was killed.
another fatally Injured and still another,
nearly asphyxiated as a result of an ex
plosion' and gas arising therefrom in
Michael Davltt mine at Butts last night.
The explosion Is charged by the Amal-
garated copper company officials to hav
ing been a - deliberate attempt on the
part oi Helnse miners to annihilate the
employes of the rival concern. Th
dead is Samuel Olson, a miner., Fatally
injured. John Drivel, a miner. Fore
man 'John Ponaluma, who upon hearing
the report rushed to the scene of the
explosion and was overcome by gas and
would have been asphyxiated but for the
bravery of 'a party of rescuers, who
dragged him from danger. The title to
the Michael Davltt mine,1 which lies be
tween . the - Pennsylvania and Rarus
mines, is owned by the Amalgamated
and United Copper companies, respec
tively, and is . in litigation between
them. , . ,: - : ,- -
The Pennsylvania miners were' en
gage in work under orders of the United
States court to ascertain to what extent
Heinze had looted the ore bodies of the
Michael Davltt as alleged by the Amal
gamated people., It appears that miners
were engaged in stopping passages from
their upraise into the Helnce mines and
were working to prevent blasting smoke
from the miners creeping in on them,
thus driving them from their work.
Without warning there was & deafen
ing crash, it is Alleged, on the Heinze
side of the door, which blew the. door
from its place and crushed the timbers.
The noise attracted foreman Ponaluma,
who rushed to the scene, but the sweep
of gas from tho Rarus mine overcame
him and but for severs! miners who, had
followed him he would have perished. '
Sheriff J. J. Quinn and force of of
ficers are at the mine and if he can lo
cate the blame he will make arrests.
The excitement Is Intense and the con
tending forces of miners are wrought
up- to,. -such a high degree that it for
bodes further , trouble. Deputy State
Mine ilnspector, Joseph J. Berry was at
once notified of the afflalr, and he sent a
message to State Mine Inspector John
Byrne of Henela, requesting him to
coma to Butts as quickly as possible.
Bvrr.e 'left Helena fdr Butts on this
Ah inquest will be held this afternoon
at 6 o'clock in the-Interior of the mine.
No- one Is alldwed to enter the mine, so
the extent of the damage cannot be
learned. '. . '' .-
Feeling on . the part . of the Amal
gamated .miners ' is ' running high - and
further trouble Is predicted. (V W.
Goodale, who has charge of Boston and
Montana properties, openly declares that
it was a deliberate attempt on the part
of Heinze employes to murder the Penn
sylvania miners. He says he will prose
cuts the case vigorously In the criminal
courts and furthermore proposes to call
the attention of the federal court to the
alleged attempt to, frustrate hs .order
of the court permitting. an untrammeled
survey - and inspection of the Davltt
property. ; , , .. , .

Some figures in Chief of Police Hunt's
annuai report show that under the exist
ing system of fining the gambling
houses at stated intervals, which was
not in use in previous years, 132,808
was turned Into the city treasury. The
total receipts of the department
amounted to $48,774.05, the sum being
collected aside from the . gamblers'
tribute being $13,989.05. The amount
was $5,602 in 1902 and $9,571 in 1901.
The total number of arrests for the
year Just-closed was 6.078. This in
cludes the gamblers, however, who are
arrested 24 times a year. For tho year
previous ii was s,us ana ior iu 0,001
foil into the hands of the polfce. Chief
Hunt attributes the increase to the fact
that an unusual number of floating
population has drifted into Portland and
he has kept his men busy picking up the
suspicious characters ad drivlg them
out of the city.
The figures showing the number of ar
rests for several of the more common
effenses show well for the work of the
department in 1903. The great number
of minors taken into custody either
proves that the Juvenile population . of
Portland is growing Worse, or that the
officers have been unusually successful
in arresting youngsters who -get into
trouble. The following table is of in
