Thai the children were ragged and

pal allegation of the answer filed by Mrs.
Minnie O. Berger to the application of
Edward 8. Ackerman, a newspaper man
of St. Ixuts, Mo., for the - custody of
his children, Jean and . Helen Adellna
Ackerman. The answer was filed in the
circuit court "this afternoon by Spencer
Davis, attorneys for ' Mrs. Berger. It
states that Mrs, Berger is unable to ap
pear in court at present, as her husband,
Robert Berger, uncle of the children, is
out of the city, and also because Jean
Ackerman was sent, December 16. to
another uncle, William Delventhal, of
Warrentnn, Me., to be cared for. Both
Berger and Delventhal are brother! of
the deceased mother of the children.
Mrs. Berger also states that when Mrs.
Ackerman died Ackerman sold all her
furniture and Jewelry and abandoned the
children. ' When they, arrived in Port
land they were ragged and dirty. Since
then, she says, they have been carefully
looked after. They have been sent to
the Sunday school of the First Baptist
church, of which Mrs. Berger is a mem
ber, and Helen has been sent to the city
schools whenever she was able to at
tend. Lately, Mrs. Berger says, the
girl has been kept away from school
because It was feared that her father
would kidnap her.

Couiicllman; F. T. Merrill said today
that speeches attributed to various
memhers of th,e council in a request for
Chief of Police, . Hunt's removal when
several councilmen called on the mayor
Thursday, were never made.- Mr. Mer
rill said that the subject of 'slot ma
chines was rtot mentioned,! that the
mayor, instead of keeping silent, openly
informed the council that he would
stand by Chief Hunt, and that speeches
In defense of the chief were made by
at: least two members of the council.
Prior to the special meeting held to
consider the liquor license question sev
eral of the councilmen started for .the
mayor's office, saying thar the chief was
"the one blot on the administration" and
that the 12 should petition the mayor
for his removal. The petition was not
made owing to a division, of opinion.
, In session with the mayor the various
members of the council seeking the
chief's scalp spoke their views, but ac
cording to Mr. Merrill no mention was
made of the charge concerning an agree
ment with owners of slot machines, nor
was any evidence produced, to show
that the chief should be removed.
In reply to the various statements.
Mayor Will lama said, that whatever
Chief of Police Hunt had done he had
done It under the mayor's orders, that
as far aa he knew the -council was not

that he Would be very loath ta remove

proof of mismanagement or dishonesty

extended defense- of Mr, Hunt the

Mr. Merrill said that be had talked
with many policemen and had yet to find
one who desired the chief's removal,.. He
also said that the desire, for the, chiefs

During the year 1903 the value of the

$4,268,630. This shows a decided in

1903 was given to M. Olsen, to erect a
two-story dwelling at Multnomah and
East First streets, to Cost 12.250.
In the line of cement sidewalks the
year shows a wonderful record. The
length of the walks constructed under

was very heavy and the court room was
congested with prisoners and witnesses
this morning. Many f the cases bad
to- be continued as Judge Hogue could
not inquire into them all today. There
were not many "drunks' before His
Honor as Chief Hunt released not a few
because he was wont to overlook a little
fall from grace on the occasion of the
advent of the new. year. But not many
Intoxicated men were arrested yesterday-
Mrs. Mary Boyle, released only, yes
terday, was arrested again last night
after she created a dlaturbancp in her
home in Lower Alblna. She was taken
to the police 1 station almost without
clothes and while she borrowed sufficient
clothing to appear in court she came
in barefooted as she had neither shoes
nor hose with her. Judge Hogue con
tinued the case and she will be examined
by. the county physician, as it Is be
lieved she is mentally deranged.

they were charged with drunkenness and
fined 5 each, which was paid.

The charge against Mrs. Jane Avert!!,

latter place, he states, the proprietor

issued emphatic orders.

In conclusion the report states:
We hope the water board may be
prepared at an early day. to authorise
some preliminary work, such as the lay
ing out of roads and paths; ' and ' the
planting of trees, on the-8-ereT tract
adjoining the City park, with the purpose
or opening same to the public when it
hall be proper to do so. . 1
"The park board stands ready at any
time to appropriate funds for any cre-
limlnary work which the Interests of
the water . company's trust will permit
to be done upon the lend in furtherance
of Its ultimate occupation as a park; and
we would urge that the present is a
time for some action In that direction.
"Because of the exposition In 1905
we also think that some substantial
work should be done in the more remote
parks of the system, namely Governor's
park. Terwllllger park, and Columbia
park.- j- '; "l .. ....i'..
"The board has decided to grant no
more concessions of park blocks or prop

DIX CAN CROSS
Just why the war department hesi
tates to allow the government transport
Dlx to come to Portland is hard for the
local navigators to understand. The
department officials seem-to think that'
the depth of the channel from Portland
to the mouth of the Columbia- will not
admit of the passage-of a -vessel of
the Dlx's displacement whereas the lo
cal authorities state that the channel is
of a sufficient depth to easily accommo
date a vessel drawing - considerably
more than the transport, laden with for
age supplies. .v
Ths local men cite the cases of the
Algoa, a sister ship of the Dlx, the As
cot and the Kobe, all ships drawing sn
equal depth, if not greater, than the
vessel : in . question, which were moved
about the local harbor with the greatest
ofv ease, and experienced no trouble at
all, in the trip to and from the mouth of
the Columbia. , - . ;
The Dix, laden with cargo, will draw
but . 23- feet the Indraptra, the big'
Oriental liner, was brought up from As
toria and returned without the sllarhteitt
hitch, while drawing in, excess of the -Dlx'
maximum draught, -t ,
The merchants of Portland asked the
government for a transpor.t,vand it re
sponded by- assigning the largest one in
the' service, and the local men, intend
to, show that it can --be accommodated.
The best authorities among the Colum-
bla river pilots, are unanimous in' their
opinion that no trouble need be exper
ienced In bringing the transport to Port-'
land, and loading her here. , ', f ." . '.,
