CHIVALRY. OUT OF
DATE IN SEATTLE
Portland is slow. At least that is the
opinion of a Seattle woman, who was
unique enough to prefer to stand in a
street car to taking the seat of a tired
i man who wearily arose and bowed when
'she entered. -
It was :30, and the Woodlawn. car
was as crowded as ail 6:30 cars arc,
the last woman had secured a seat; tired
and forlorn workers, who happened to
be men, and therefore stood swinging
dolefully on a grimy strap, gased re
imachftHy at-th--enly maseul ins-passenger
who had a seat He was also
, weary and through the grime of the
foundry could be seen the drawn lines
caused by constant, wearing toll. At
Burnside street the oar stopped and a
handsomely attired woman v. ,th a valise
: and .'umbrella edged her way in. The
occupants of the car gased with one ac
cord at tha grimed worker, who sat for
a moment stolidly and then in disgust
pulled himself to his feet and motioned
' to the vacant six inches of cushion.
"You sit right down there," returned
the woman, as she shifted her umbrella
and took a firmer hold on the strap.
"I hate to see a tired man give his
seat to a woman who has been shopping
. all day and who takes a crowded car
because it is handy."
GENERATION'S FILTH
IN THE CITY JAIL
"1 have long considered the Portland
Jail the worst disgrace that has ever
been borne by the citizens of this city."
said James Laldlaw, the British consul,
this morning. "It is about the foulest
place I know of where human beings are
kept. Just because a man happens to be
classed as a 'hobo,' it Is no reason why
he should be thrown into as vile a den
as the present Portland Jail.
"But 'hobos are hot the only class of
people that are confined in the local Jail.
Often men, who happen to get drunk
ana iQua at me same time, are put in
' there until they sober up. There is no
' telling how many sorts of Insects get
; Into their clothing while in that den,
to say nothing of the, foul air they
' breathe."
, "Do you think the Jail should be
cleaned up?" was asked.
, "Cleaned up." replied Mr. Laldlaw.
"cleaned up, why how could they clean
! such a dirty place- as thatT Do you
know, when I first came to Portland 35

morning, Frank Cres well, a 12-year-old

chief thought should be allowed to de
part from the lockup warvg4vtt to
Jailer Ben Branch, in order that he might
call the men out from the darkness of
the inner Jail.
One' name, no one remeiabers Just
what it was, was' called, but the owner
was asleep and Wilson walked up, rubbed
his eyes and said that he had been on
quite a boose the, night before, Wil
son walked into the police station and
said that his was the name Just read off
by the. Jailer. As it tallied with one
on the blotter, against whom a charge
of drunkenness had been' placed, he was
told to go. Wilson went.
Another name, said to be Johnson,
was called and again the real man was
sleeping' soundly. Kennedy acted as his
proxy and as ha walked into the police
station, ' yawned ' and rubbed his weary
eyes,' "Fierce drunk' I had," he said.
Kennedy soon Joined his pal.
Later in tho afternoon the sleepers
whose names had been read became wide
awake and asked to be let out or tried.
Then the ruse of Wilson and Kennedy
was discovered.
This morning Chief Hunt said that
in the future more cars would be taken
when the men whom he thought could
go free Without a trial were released.
"I hate to have a hold up man sneak out
on r drunk's name," said the chief.
"Hereafter when a man Is arrested on
the charge of roaming the streets after
hours put him in a. cell by himself.
The other morning two men got out
when we didn't want them out, and we
are telegraphing all over the country for
them. 'We want 'em but I am afraid
that we will never get them."
The astonished man dropped back In
his seat and muttered, "There ain't
many women who think that way."
"Well, there is something wrong with
this town, then,and thestrangs woman
gased sternly at the women and girls
who held down the seats. "This place Is
awfully slow. Why, in Seattle and Ta

The other women of the car looked In
various directions and some of them
pushed dinner baskets out of sight and
dropped a sudden hand on shopping par
cels, but no reply was made to the
stand of the woman from the north.
At least not until she left the car, and
then an animated feminine discussion
occurred. The " consensus of opinion
among the feminine contingent seemed
to be "that she was a queer woman."
"I like that kind of queerness myself,"
whispered the dusty ironworker to his
seatmate from the shops.
"Yep; I'm thinking some of going to
Seattle," was the reply.
years ago, that Jail was then considered
to be large enough for a city of 10,000
people. Now Portland has 125.000 citi
zens, but the same old Jail. Filth has
been gathering on its walls and in its
corners for nearly a generation, and
some of these days Portland will face
an epidemic of Jail fever that will be
caused by the rottenness of the present
city prison. It is a disgrace, a shame,
that one cannot speak- too harsh things
against."
Municipal Judge Hogue this morning
said that a friend of his was speaking
of The Journal's light for a clean prison
and in the course of the conversation
said that his father's death was caused
by breathing the airs of a Jail some
thing like the Portland one. ' The father
of Mr. Hogue's informer was for sev
eral years a police Judge in a Canadian
city, where the Jail was not cleaned and
where prison bath-tubs were Just as
scarce as they are in the present Port
land Jail.

ANCIENT BILL IS
"PLACED ON FILE"
After 21 years, during which time
Portland has grown to be a metropolitan
city and the former divided sections
brought together under one municipal
ity, James Tlghtmeter yesterday pre
sented a bill for 1360, which he alleged
was due for a fill he made when East
Portland was ruled by a separate coun
cil of its own. The bill was "placed on
file."
Accompanying the hill presented by
Tlghtmeter was an affidavit signed by
J. K. Mayo, who at the time the All was
made was a councilman of East Port
land. He swore that the claimant did
tha work he represented to the council
he did, and that it was worth fully tha
amount asked.
Tlghtmeier's bill was presented to the
committee on Judiciary and elections, of
which A. F. Flegel is the chairman and
A. K. Hentley and L. Zimmerman are
members.
"After 21 years of waiting, it seems
to me this bill is getting rather old,"
remarked Chairman Flegel.
"Well, I should say so," said Bent
ley, "The bill ought to have been presented
long ago, if it was all right.',' said Zim
merman, "and Inasmuch as all these
years have passed, I move it be placed
on flic."

FORCED TO LEAVE
Arriving home at a late hour last
night, James Kennedy, who lives at 884
Bonton street, found two strange men
prowling about In his house. Kennedy
ordered the strangers to get out, but
they refused, and threatened to kill the
owner of the house. The men, one of
whom was a large feljow, grabbed Ken
nedy end pushed him out of the house.
Kennedy went in search of a police
man, and meeting Patrolmen Young and
Dolan told them of his visitors. The
patrolmen went to the house but were
unable to get in. 1 Young, then stood

' For mors, than an hour this morning
a committee of three women from the
economic department of the Portland
Women's club fired broadsides of Bug-
festlons at ths city health board,
which held its regular monthly meet
ing in the committee room adjoining the
mayor's office. .-. The women wanted the
garbage nuisance in. north Portland
abated, and came with a determination
to accomplish smethlng more than a
mere hearing from the board. The
committee was' composed of Mrs. S. H.
Trumbull, Mrs. C. C. Chapman and Mrs.
O. Rothschild, all prominent women.
Mayor Williams., being president of
the board of health, presided, and
granted the women a hearing. ' Mrs,
Trumbull acted as spokesman for the
committee, .and 'briefly outlined the pur
pose of its visit to the meeting. Then
began a series of arguments, for and
against this and that proposition for the
disposal of the city's garbage In a sani
tary manner. Much was said by the
committee and the members of the
board, and it was shown that the great
difficulty with the present crematory.
In so far as sanitary conditions are-concerned.
Is the incapacity of the incinera
tors. This necessitates the piling of all
kinds of refuse on the dump, causing
the offensive odors complained of by the
women's clubs.
Mayor Williams, after being informed
by the women and also by Councilman
Rumelin that all kinds of garbage was
being dumped at the crematory and left
to lie there, said he would stop that at
once, and expressed surprise that such
was the case.
"I went down there myself," said the
mayor, "and found various kinds of gar
bage dumped there. I instructed the
man in charge to allow no more house
hold refuse to be dumped, and supposed
the order would be obeyed. I shall see
to it that It Is."
The committee of women was loaded
down with statistics of garbage crema
tories in various sections .of the country.
They came with plenty of suggestions,
and dared to suggest what they believed
were remedies, although it was plainly
evident at times that the mayor and
members of the board did not exactly
like to be talked to in such- a manner.
"Cannot the city let a contract for
collecting the garbage, and hold one
man responsible for the city's garbage?"
was the main-: qpestlon askedby" the
women. But they also wanted to know
If the cost of the system to the citizens
could not be reduced. -
"How much did you pay for having
your garbage hauled away?" asked
Mayor Williams of M,rs. Trumbull.
"I pay 50 cents per month 66 per
year, she replied. '
"And you think that exorbitant?"
Queried the mayor.
"I certainly do," was the reply. .
The mayor said nothing further, but
looked as though, he thought her a very
hard woman to please. However, the
women held statistics to show that In
other cities rates were less, and in some
the cost to the citizens was nothing.
Councilman Rumelin arose at this
Juncture and asked permission to speak.
He said that he had Investigated the
report that the dump at the crematory
was very unsanitary, and had found it
was true; that all kinds of refuse was
dumped there, and left to remain until
the odors that rose were most offensive.
He said that he had studied the garbage
question from many standpoints, and
believed that the crematory could be
operated right where it is at present
without giving any offeusa whatever to
any one, if two more incinerators were
put in so as to consume the garbage
as fast as it is brought to the crema
tory. He said that In San Francisco
they had a modern crematory that cost
6400,000, but that they did not inciner
ate anywhere near all the garbage; that
they picked out every conceivable thins
that could be sold and returned it to the
channels of trade, carrying all the germs
of disease it had picked up at so much
per cubic foot. In this point, he said,
Portland's system beat that, for the
mayor refused to allow any of the garb
age to be sold, but insisted on all of it
being burned.
Tha committee of women were evi
dently pleased at what the speaker said,
and asked if the board of health could
not take up the crematory matter and
see if it could not be made sanitary.
Mayor Williams, therefore, requested the
board to investigate the conditions and
report at the next meeting.
"We do not want the board to think
we came here in any fault-finding mood,"
said Mrs. Trumbull, "but we want bet
ter garbage conditions to abound."
"1 know that," replied the mayor,
"and we wapt you and all others to re
alise that we welcoma any suggestion
that will help to make conditions in the
city better. A great deal of this trouble
could be avoided, anyway, if the people
would only take care of their own gar
bage, instead of sending it all to the
cretriatory. Much of it is easily de
stroyed in the kitchen stove or the fur
nace, and If people would Just think of
making general conditions better. In
stead of devoting all their energies to
their own benefits, all would be better.'
During the Interview City Auditor I
Devlin spoke briefly, saying that Port
land is yet far too small a city to have
a municipal garbage system. It would
cost $300,000 per year, he said, to col
lect the garbage from the 40 square
miles embraced In the city limits, and
the levying of a special garbage tax
would work an Injustice to suburban
residents, because wagons could not be
provided, he said, to reach them.
The proposition of calling for bids and
causing the system to be placed under
the management of one person or firm
is favored by many counollmen, and the
mayor also. This may be done later.

"If March comes In with an adder's
head It will go out with a peacock
tail."
"March, wet and windy.
Makes the barn full and findy.
March, damp and warm.
Will do the farmers much harm."
These are old proverbs which have
been handed down from time lmmemor
lal. It has been blustery and rainy all
morning, and according to the first quo
tation the last part of the month will
he warm and pleasant. But March is a
treacherous vmonth, and some even go
so far as to wish it stricken froni the
list. Concerning it, not even the weather
bureau cares to make any extended prog.
n ostlcatlbns. Wh en asked th is mp rnln g
for a forecast. District Forecaster Heals
briefly replied:
"We will have 31 days of weather."
But at Portland the month of March
has never played any capers worthy of
particular- mention. As the fellow says,
it usually rains a few days, and there
never has been a drought during the
month at least, since the establish
ment of. the local weather bureau. If
there , has, no mention of it has been
made In the records. This Information
gives the average precipitation for the
month at 6.5 Inches.
Before noon a few snowflakes were
falling at occasional intervals, but upon
striking the earth they werS soon re
duced to watef. Back In the foothills
snow remains on the ground. . Snow flur
ries have occurred today in various parts
of the valley. The same kind of
weather is being experienced In the
sound country:
At all points up the river, the Wil
lamette Is falling, and the weather bu
reau does not anticipate unusually high
water, : At Portland the river Is, at a
standstill at 12 5 feet At Eugene it Is
feet; Albany, 14.8 feet and falling,
and Salem, 13.7 feet and receding.
The Columbia is rising considerably,
being 9.3 feet at .The Dalles. This pre
vents the water in the Willamette from
running out so rapidly, and in that
manner keeps the river at a higher
stage here than it otherwise would be.
If a local freshet does occur it will be
unusual. There never has been a time
during the month .of March when the
docks at Portland were flooded.
PATIENT COURT IS
TIRED OF WAITING
Florlan Pfluger, from all appearances,
is a very deliberate man when it comes
to obeying an order of the court. July
26, 1902, he was ordered by M. C. George,
Judge of department 4 in the state cir
cuit court, to pay TKrl. Theresa Pfluger,
who wift at that time granted a divorce,
alimony in the amount of $20 a
month. It Is alleged that he has paid
nothing since that time and through
her attorney. Otto J. Kraemer, an effort
is being made by Mrs. Pfluger to com
pel him to carry out the court's in
structions. To an order of John B. Cleland, the
presiding Judgo, directing Pfluger to
appear and show cause his attorneys,
Piatt ft Plat, have filed motions to re
call the execution in the hands of the
sheriff and to set aside such order on
the grounds that the allegations sre not
specific and their basis not sufficient
Argument on these motions was 'to
have been heard before Judge Cleland
this morning, but by request the data
for argument will be reset The, grounds
on which Mrs. Pflugeri was, granted a
divorce were cruelty and failure to pb
viae.
PORTSMOUTH WILL .
