Of the east side residents and the mayor
and executive board wished to confer
wtih those interested.
At a meeting of the bridge committee
f the executive board yesterday It was
decided to close the bridge to foot pas

to run, cars over the bride, charging 2,
cents a ticket in- lots of five.
This the board approved of. The street

Charles hotel and at East Water street
However, pending an Investigation of
the circumstances, s.nd particularly of
the terms of the contract for reconstruc

Judge Webtser suspending , foot traffic
on the Morrison-street bridge. The board

the problem at the meeting held this

order will soon have to be issued.

by severe cold the con

We can say confidently
that no other remedy

Thirty years prove it

Showers. "It is beyond our jurisdiction
or that of the county court, in fact, to
say whether a charge shall be made or
not. Our work will cease when this order
goes into effect."
Judge Webster did not decide to have
the order held off until after the board
adjourned. Then a question arose in his
mind as to certain provisions in the con
tract, particularly with -regard to the
subsidy to be drawn by the traction conv
pany during the work on the bridge. He
decided that it would be best to exercise
caution regarding the Issuing of such an
order until he had looked Into the subject
In Its various phases.
"It seemed to us to be the only success
ful way of accommodating the people,"
explained Mayor , Williams today. "It
Is said to be necessary to stop traffic,
for the people would be In constant
danger of accident and It will be neces
sary to tear away the sidewalks to start
work on the foundations. The company,
I understand, does not want to make any
money through the inconvenience to the
public; they simply desire to pay the ex
pense of the special car."
"When once the contractors take
charge of the bridge they have full and
complete control of the structure. In my
opinion," said City' Auditor Devlin.
"While they ;are conducting building op
erations they take absolute charge and
It is entirely optional with them as
to what mariner of traffic is permitted.
Of course they will not assume too many
risks and deem -it a danger to allow
foot- trttfflc. Therefore they want It
stopped. It is aomething which they
city has nothing to say about. I pre
sume if they want to arrange with the

it Is a personal matter that ia entirely

TO CHAPMAN STREETS PAYOR
SUBSTANTIAL, PAYING MEET TO
A large number of property-owners on
Yamhill street, between Fourth and
Chapman, met yesterday afternoon at
Ladd Tlltona bank for the purpose of
discussing the proposed improvement of
tne street. The first question consid
ered was whether the street should be
improved. . Residents on Yamhill, be
tween Sixteenth and Chapman, said that
that part of the street is in excellent
condition, and this was corroborated by
others who had visited and inspected it.
A resolution in favor of Improving the
remainder of Yamhill street was then
adopted by large majority.
There was a prolonged discussion as
to the character of Improvement that
should be made. Some of those pres
ent were in favor of merely dressing
the street up, but the majority were In
favor of a substantial improvement The
views of t'he property-owners as to the
kind of improvement needed varied
greatly, and it was finally agreed that
the street committee of the city council
should be aaked to advertise for bids
for the various classes of improvements,
also for bids for the maintenance of the
street after it has been Improved. By
this plan there will be opportunity for
contractors to bid upon ' each kind of
Improvement, and the property-owners
will have the advantage of both ccmpe
tljion as to cost of construction and
maintenance, and of a full exposition ot
the merits of the several kinds of im
provement Under the provisions of the
new charter the street committee can
call for bids In this way. -
There is no question that Yamhill
street will be improved, and the matter
will be considered by the street com
mittee of .the city council at 2 o'clock
next Friday aTternoon. in the city hail.

Hon. B. D. Murphy and Louis M.

Portland for the purpose of interesting

the plan which they are advocating has
met with strong approval.
California, Oregon. Washington, Idaho, i
Nevada, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and
Colorado are to be included in the com

it would be eminently fitting that Gov
ernor Chamberlain, the only Democratic
governor on the coast, should act as
chairman of the consolidated delega

strongly in favor of the nomination of
William R. Hearst as the Democratic
candidate for president, both he and Mr.
Mooser say emphatically that the pro

"California Is very desirous that there
should be unity of action between the
Pacific Coast states." said 8enator Mur
phy, "so that their Influence may be felt
in the national convention and In order
to aid in obtaining legislation for this
coast. In the past the votes of these
states have been scattered and their in
fluence has been very slight. If they
act together, adopting the unit rule, they
will be a strong factor in the convention
and can also exert an Influence upon con
gress." "The primary object of our trip," sup
plemented Mr. Mooser, '.is to effect this
combination of the Pacific Coast states
and territories. We are not here as the
emissaries of any individual candidate.
We want the delegations to come to the
convention free-handed and there settle
for themselves whom they will support
If our plan IS successful the delegations
will adopt the unit rule and the major

BOB DID WOT AUTHORXM KELLY'S
George Kelly, arrested by Detectives
Day and Welner and Sergeant Carpenter
for complicity In the theft of a large
amount of furs from SUverfleld's fac
tory recently, was released today by
Chief of Police Hunt, without authority
from District Attorney Manning, ac
cording to the statement of the latter
official. Kelly was bound over to the
grand- jury and placed under $2,000
bonds, which he never gave. He was
let go today.
When a commitment to the county Jail
was issued by Municipal Court Clerk
Olson yesterday for Matt Cullen, the
other alleged fur thief, none was asked
for Kelly, and It developed this morn
ing that he had been released.
Judge Hogue stated this afternoon
that the detectives had asked him to let
the man go, but he told them he could
not do so. They then went to Deputy
District Attorney Adams, who telephoned
to Manning, and the release was made.
Manning today denied that he agreed to
the release. .
"The police had no business to let
Kelly out," said Manning today, "and
if they do that it will get so that if
any criminal tells where goods are lo
cated he wilt be released."
"Kelly was released because he told
where things were, and nothing could
have been proved against him, anyway,"
said Manager I. Jacobs of the Stlverfleld
There is a reward of tZOO for the re
turn of the stolen furs, and Kelly told
the detectives where me plunder was
located. As published yesterday, ' the
furs were recovered. No part of the re
ward has yet been paid.

' Senator Murphy said: "While it is
too early to forecast the action of the
California delegation, I think It will be
friendly to' Mr. Hearst I do not think
that It will be , Instructed, and will be
free to act with the delegates from the
other coast states.
"California has a friendly feeling for
Mr; Hearst. His father was a pioneer
and a United States senator, from Cal
ifornia. His mother Is a regent of the
state university and has made large do
nations to the Institution. Mr. Hearst
ia a native son, and we are anxious tq
have some one from the west in- the
presidential chair. But apart from all
this, California is very desirous of se
curing unity of action among the coast
States. It should be productive of sub
stantial results in securing legislation
from congress. I understand that you
people , in Oregon have had to assess
yourselves at times in order to keep the
Willamette and Columbia rivers open

gress should not make complete provis

which this coast wants might be ob
tained if our states were acting in
concert While we are endeavoring to
bring about a combination among the
Democrats we would also advise the
Republicans of the coast to do the same
Chamber lain for Oh airman.
"Who would head the united delega

tion," Senator Murphy was asked.
"The logical chairman of the Pacific
coast delegation would be Governor
Chamberlain," he replied. "He Is the
only Democratic governor on the coast,
and In my opinion, should be the head
of our combined delegations."
In response to a question as to the
probable attitude of the California dele
gation toward Hearst, .Mr. Mooser said:
"It would be unwtse at this time
to think of pledging the Cal
ifornia delegation. Inasmuch as
that would preclude' the possibility
of this Joint arrangement with the other
coast states and territories. -
Mr. Mooser had little to say as to

far as possible, to eliminate the line of
demarcation between Cleveland Demo

radical Cleveland Democrat," pointing to
Senator Murphy, "and I am a radical
Bryan Democrat, yet we get along to

there will be a conflict in the .national
convention. There is bound to be a
clash, and we can't get away from it,

Senator Murphy and Mr. Mooser have

consin is student secretary at Kyoto,

government schodls in Japan who were
selected and secured at the request of
the Japanese government from among
the college association leaders of North
America by Mr. Fisher. These men,
while in the employment of the govern
ment as teachers are conducting Bible
classes in their own homes ' and are
volunteer leaders In the many university,
college and city associations of the
country. Five buildings have been
erected with the help of Americans at
Tokio, Kyoto, Osaka and Ku ma mo to,
Many of the officers of the associa

Japan. The late Hon. K. Kataoka, pres

Toklo. He always opened parliament in
silent prayer, and held at his residence
a Bible class for some of his closest
friends in the house. In the board of

ulpo, Rear Admiral TJrln, was trained

Young Men's Christian association. The
Japanese associations are planning o
undertake an army work similar to that
done by the American associations dur
ing the Spanish war.
There is being enlisted In the asso
ciations at Japan many of its eminent
leaders, who take time to attend con
ferences, to study arid direct the national
association movement. At a recent

ney, city official, a member, of legation,
one member of parliament, an officer
of Japan's largest steamship company
and three teachers.

religion of Christ Is the one most full
of strength and promises for the nation
and Individual. I can congratulate the
Young Men's Christian association upon
the good work it Is doing for the wel

standing Is the woolhouse.
The mill employed on an average of
150 persons, and had a payroll of about
$6,000 per month. Many of the em
