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 , THEATRE CATASTROPHE 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 flee at St. Paul has an Immense amount of work piled up In what is usually the dull season." . The Sociologist Answered.: .Are suicides more alarmingly frequent nowadays, or are the newspapers more efficient In chronK'ling them? Thus asks a distinguished sociologist. Both.

' 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 ters,, , A VETERAN OF THE CONFEDERACY COLONEL D. M. WEST.
