"great mental anguish" on account of

petition asserts,-are allowed considerable
liberty ' and frequently annoy residents

soon became so eager to see more of
the town that his brother was unable
to make him return to the hotel, so the
visitor was left alone. When he re
covered the cold walls of the city Jail
surrounded him.
T. M. Orlder wandered over to , the
corner of Tenth and East Alder streets,
where he walked up to the house of O.

homelike started in, but the door being
locked and bis keys not fitting the locks,
he tried to crawl in through a side win

F. K, McCanrer and B. a Baker, who
reside next door to Monroe, saw the
stranger prowling around, and at once
telephoned .the police station, stating
that a drunken man waa about a house

"No one," stated Chief Hunt this
morning, "ever entered a charge of burg

Vice-President "Butler of the Paciftc
Construction- company, which has the
brldge'contract, was -in -conference with
Mayor Williams this morning and stated
afterward that there were several mat
ters yet to be definitely settled. "We
cannot : make any, announcement until
after a session of- the special bridge
committee." explained Mayor Williams.
Mr. Butler figures that the company
will lose about $10,000 by the provision
which prevents the stoppage of traffic
for not more than SO days. "If we
could atop trafftc entirely,". he Insisted,
'the work could be finished up in two
thirds of the time it will now require.''
From present indications there Is li
able to be , another outburst from the
smouldering slot machine volcano and
the majority of the city officials are
waiting the result of the secret Investi
gation which a special committee : of
the city council is now making,
Independent of the feature charging
certain . officials with graft in connec
tion with the operation of the slot ma
chines, some councilmen favor a general
system of fines. . "If you allow one sort
of gambling under sufferance of monthly
fines, let ail, the gambling devices pay
fines,'' is their cry, and to this the pow
ers that be have so far replied, 'that slot
machines are not placed on the level
with common gambling and cannot be
classed in the, name category." '.
These councilmen are said to have
seen the mayor on various occasions and
while they refuse to express themselves
several of them have no hesitancy in
committing' themselves to such a policy
as has been outlined In conversation
with their friends.'
The proposition now depends on the
report of this investigation committee.
So far they have held sessions behind
closed doors and nothing definitely is
known of their work. One member of
the board assured a friend that the evi
dence had shown collusion between the
slot machine proprietors and certain city
Director of Architecture Lewis has
completed plans and specifications for
nine of the principal buildings to be
erected on the Lewis and Clark fair
grounds. The state's building is the
most costly and is estimated at 178,000.
Liberal Arte and Festival hall will cost
$46,000 each. Bridge across Guild's
lake, $50,080, and the Forestry, Public
Shelter. Public Comfort, Fire Depart
ment and Administration buildings will
cost $20,000 each. The main entrance
will be decorated at a cost of $30,000,
and will be embellished with the quo
tation: "Westward the Course of Em
pire Takes Its Way." Bids for the per
formance of this work will be adver
tised for nexc week. At a meeting of
the fair corporation the plans were ap
proved. Jefferson Meyers, of the state com
mission, is on his way home from Wash
ington, and will stop for a time at St
Louis. For two months he has been at
the national capital working in the In
terests of the appropriation for the fair.
Before leaving Washington he set on
foot a move for an issue of souvenir
gold dollars and Lewis and Clark stomps.

M. Gevurt, in speaking of conditions In
the east said: 'The eyes of the east
erners are on the west. During the past
year the large orders have come from
the coast and they are naturally greatly
interested. People are anxious to hear
about the Lewis and Clark fair. I talked
with fully 100 persons and they all ex
pressed themselves that they would
come west to see the country if the
rates were favorable. Since then they
have been fixed at $50, which they con
sider within the reach of all. Another
thing that I noticed, which is to the
detriment of Oregon and Portland,' is
that all of the railway folders in the
east speak of Seattle and Washlnrton
but no reference is made to .Portland or
Oregon. Again, in the papers articles
are .headed Seattle or Vancouver, ' but
nothing appears under a Portland date
line. The. commercial organisations of
the city should remedy this."

day I was passing along one of our
streets when I came upon a small boy
smoking a cigarette. I asked him if
he didn't know that there was a law
forbidding the sale of cigarettes to
minors. He said that he had never heard
of any such law. I, said,' 'if a policeman
should ever see you smoking he would
be liable to arrest you.' He told me
that he had smoked before every policeman-
in this town and not one of them
had ever said a word. That shows how
the law is being enforced.";
A motion Was carried appointing two
of the members to go to Judge Hogue
and commend him for his recent action
In regard to the cigarette law.

Canadians Safer Under British Flaf,
. . Sir William Van Home, the British
railroad magnate, who. began life as a
Yankee, boy in an Illinois town,, but
who was knighted by Queen Victoria
for building the Canadian Pacific rail
road, in discussing the question of an
nexation of Canada to the United States,
said: -
. "I think the annexation Is more likely
to , be the other way. Canada la very
well satisfied as it Is. Our administra
tion of the laws la much' more prompt
and just than in the United States. -
"The contrasc is noticeable at Skag
way, which was claimed by Canada,
though nobody wanted the people. , The
crack of the revolver was. heard every
day, and everybody was armed to the
teeth. But when the rush td the Yukon
began tne Canadian government sent a
customs Inspector , and half . a' dosen
mounted police. The revolvers and
knives dropped at, the border Una and
north of It those terrors of the town
were as meek as Sunday school children.
'This la not a Canadian character
istic only, . but similar conditions pre
vail wherever Great Britain's flag files.

' Car of Gloves.
How few women realise that It is In the
putting on and off of a- glove that . it
is pulled out of shape If one Is careless
In this operation. Watch an experienced
saleswoman sometime and you will see
she puts the glove on the four fingers
before she does on the thumb. In taking
it off begin at th wrist and turn back as
far as the second Joint of the fingers. It
will then some off easily with a gentle
pull at the. linger tips. Don't roll hp in a
little ball as if they were stockings, but
stretch r them out and lay them away
as flat as possible , with the thumb
folded lhsldathe palm. If this cafe Is
taken your gloves will last twice as long
and look well every time you wear them.

and ice gorges in the Welser river the
past two days have been causing a great
deal of damage. The large steel wagon
bridge at Mtdvale across the Welser has
been Weakened by the flood. The east
approach to the bridge has been washed
away for a distance of 60 feet and the
bridge is standing in the middle of the
stream unapproached. Tuesday evening
the new bridge Just completed -a few
weeks ago by the Pacific & Northern
railroad over the Wplser river a Good
rich was weakened to such an extent
that trains have - not crossed for two
days. A number of pllea were cut oft
by the Ice, " Mail and - passengers ara
being transferred on handcars to Coun
cil, a distance of 10 miles. At a number
of places on the river there are "gorges
and in some places the rivet1- is a half

"While It is hoped that good conces

cannot be stated with any degree of au

It is the general belief among rail
road men here that good rates will be
given for the fair, but Inasmuch as the
Transcontinental s Passenger association
has Just announced the rates for the
St. Louis exposition. It la stated that
It will probably be several months It
