Owing to additional expenses which
havrf to be defrayed the Port of Port
land tax levy has been increased thin
year to 2.8 mills, compared with l.R
mills last year. Payments on several
outstanding; Interest-bearing; bonds have
to be made, and the running expenses of
of the port incidental to the building;
and completion of the drydock will be
considerably higher than at any previous
period. . ' . '. ' . ,
- It is also the expressed Intention of
the commission to put the harbor In
better condition than it has ever been.
, The levy has been divided Into three
parts, the first consisting of 1.6 mills
on the assessed valuation of the prop
erty within the boundary' of the Port
of Portland. - The taxable - property
amounts to 649.607,796, and a tax of 1.6
mills will produce 174.261. This sum Is
to be used for general purposes to op
erate the dredges the drydock, etc., and
to pay the accrued Interest on 1360,000
of bonds. These are the original Port
of Portland bonds, and are drawing in
terest at the rate of 6 per cent. The
interest on them each year is $17,500,
hence there will be available for the
operation of the plant the difference be
tween $742)11 and the first named sum,
Which is Ki6,761.
A fiecond levy of ono mill is made to
pay the Invest on refunding bonds
and to retire 130,000 of the same on
June 1, 1904. The refunding bonds con
sist of $300,000 and draw 4 per cent in
terest. Consequently the amount de
sired to be raised is $30,000 plus the in
terest of $12,000, which makes $42,000.
From the' one-mill levy will be realised
$49,607, a sum adequate to answer all
contingencies. The third levy is .3 of
a mill. It was made to pay the Interest
on outstanding drydock bonds of $185,
000, .which are drawing a rate of 4 per
cent. The interest, therefore, amounts
to $7,450. The tax of .3 of a mill will
bring $14,852. .
SAW THE IROQUOIS ,
Charles J. Gray, traveling agent for
the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis &
Omaha , railroad, returned Saturday
after a three weeks', visit In the East,
Mr. Gray was In Chicago n the fate
ful afternoon when the hundreds of men,
women and children met their death in
the Iroquois theatre fire. Speaking of
the fire, Mr. Gray said: t
"I heard the general. alarm and went
to the scene soon after. From the front
of the theatre no one could have sus
pected what the loss of life was for dur
the whole fire not a wreath of
smoke- nor. a crashing window nor
scarcely1 a groan was seen or heard,
The crowd jammed traffic for a mile
around the theatre until late at night,
but until next morning no oife believed
that more than 60 lives had been lost.
"When tiid Chicago Journal, on the
night of the Are. said that 200 people
were killed In the Are, the city smiled.
Aftr the lira was over, the front of the
thf-atre' did iwit appfar different from
what It r always had been, since only
one small iwlndow was brokon and the
white stone of the building was not
stained or blackened. . ,
"I am glad to get back to a warm cli
mate. It wus 6 below zero at Toronto,
12 below at St. Paul, and 'about as bad
everywhere else' in the East. ' Business
seems to bo very, good, and our head of

' That life in the city prison is not one
continual round of pleasure is evident
JTrom the number of "trusties";, who are
making their escape. Since Sunday three
men serving time in the dingy city baa
tile have escaped. Two of them were
trusties, who left while cleaning up the
prison, and the other man disappeared
as if swallowed tip by the earth.
The number, of escapes again Illus
trates the fact that the city jail is not
adapted to the purpose , for which it is
at present used. Escapes have been fre
quent during' the past six months,, but
conditions are more to blame than the
officers' on duty at the station.
The prisoners who eluded the officers
this week are S. C. Hendricks, G. ' Wll
llams and GeorgeWoods. The first two
wereBerTOSgTtlme Tor .minor offenses,
while the detectives lnvestlgaed "their
records believing that other charges of
a more serious nature would develop.
Hendricks was arrested by Petectives
Hogeboom and Vaughn in company with
Fred Love, a suspected highwayman,
who was Identified by a victim of a
holdup three weeks ago,' As a good
case could not' be shown against either
man, Hendricks was 1 sentenced to" 20
and Love to 30 days, on charges of be
ing out after hours. '
Hendricks was . not a v "trusty," but
was serving his time in the jail cell
room. His time would have been up the
latter part- of the present week, but
when Jailer Ben Branch tried to find him
Monday , morning the prisoner was not
to be seen. He disappeared during the
night and .none of the other prisoners
knew what became of him. The escape
still remains a mystery- and the police
cannot figure out how he eluded them.
Williams and wood took' advantage of
the Jailer's absence Monday 'afternoon.
They, we're "trusted prisoners and wero
taken from their cells by Jailer' Branch
to mop out the courtroom and halls on
the second floor.; The Jailer was sum
moned to the Jail office to lock up a
prisoner, and . while he was away , the
two men quietly disappeared.
Williams was also arrested by Hoge
boom and Vaughn and had Just begun a
sentence of 20 days. The detectives sus-1
pected him of being wanted in Chicago,
and were in communication with- the
department of the Windy Cityregarding
the man. ; Until word was received the
officers had him sentenced for , 20 days
for being out after hours,'
Woods was serving 20 days for beg
ging,-but his time was almost up. The
police are not very deeply grieved over
the escapes, as they believe the-city is
now rid of several undesirable charac

'After eight , years'" continuous 1 resi

a young Chinese, stood in peril of being

The case was appealed, and while Mr.
Tarpley was in San Francisco, Assistant

The new plant is expected to be ready
for operation about April 1. next. It
will have a capacity of about 20,000
pounds of butter a day.
"The new establishment will have the
advantage of machinery patented by the

Charged With Murder.
The body of Chris Olson, a long
shoreman, was found yesterday at the
foot of a 30-foot embankment, dead, and
Charle Thompson, the companion of
Olson,, In a spree the 41ght before, is
under arrest,; charged with drunken
ness but suspected tof murder.
Judging from the stiff, prostrate form,
the man had been dead several . hour
Two ugly gashes on his head pointed to
ward foul play. Another theory is that
he wan either : pushed or that he fell
over the railing from a platform above.
Charles Thompson, who is under arrest,
is mate on the barkentlne Robert Sud
den, which is loading lumber at the
Tacoma mill for California. Olson was
a big fellow, about 45 years of age.i'. He
