    GLEANING OF THE CITY JAIL ,
BEGUN BY CHIEF , OF POLICE
-TIm work of cleaning up the city Jail
begn this morning In real earnest and
-will be pushed, rapidly. It la thought
that the $1,000 allowed by the council
' for the purpose of making' the jail a
place fit for human beings will give out
all. too Boon. :":: -''-v-.V' ;.
- "I. m going to Wave work done that
will allow, pure, air and glad sunshine
stream into the darkness of the inner
colls." said Chief Hunt, who has charge
of the repairing of the Jail. One of
the things very badly needed by the jail
Is light and air, and I will have.it ar
ranged so that both will be enjoyed by
the prisoners. We will have & large sky
light arranged, find perhaps some win
flows may be put in; '? A tath tub will
no doubt be fixed for the use of .' the
. male prisoners. .Some painting will also
be done, ' and ' some . of ' the ' large cells
are to be cut up Into smaller ones. Some
unused space will also -be transferred
Into places where prisoners can be kept.
"Another thing thaOls to be done is
to pull down, all the. ancient wood, work
and replace- it -with Aiew, uninhabited

(Special DU patch to The Journal.)
Seattle,1 March (.Senatorial- politics
have beett injected ; Into .. the municipal
campaign now going on in this city, and
ns a result bitter' factionalism is ap
pearing . in the Republican ranks. The
supporters of 8. H. Plies for senator,
who brought R. H. Bellinger forward
a.s the Republican mayoralty candidate,
became alarmed at the situation last
week and wired Mr. Piles in California
. to hurry home and help save the day.
Piles arrived here Thursday-and has
taken oft his' coat for Balllnger, the
Republican nominee. This has acted
as a red flag to the anti-Plies Republi
cans, and it Is apparent that the In
jection of the senatorial issue into city
politics will - create new navoe in me
party .organisation. ' '- ''
. It must be understood that ' Balllng
er's nomination was engineered by the
Piles senatorial managers, and Is dis
tinctly,: a Files move, designed to give
lilm control of the municipal machine,
including the police and fire departments.
These are effective weapons in a sena
torial fight, anoV moreover, they may be
used to advantage,, in the coming prl
marv contests by Piles to force his
erstwhile friend and ally. Senator J. X
Smith, oft the political map. Senator
Smith wants to be the King county can
didate for governor before the state con
ventton, which meets at Tacoma,May
11. to nominate a state ticket and to
elect delegates to the national conven
tion. ' Time was when Smith and Piles
fought political battles , side by. side,
but that time-has 'long since passed.
Mr. Smith's gubernatorial ambitions
, seriously Interfere with Piles' senator
ial program at least, so think Mr. Piles
and a majority of his advisers. . Hence
tfle program of the. Piles people to cap
ture the city government, control the ap
proaching primaries and to gently, but
firmly, remove Dr. Smith from the realm
of gubernatorial possibilities. ,
In the main the people who want Sen
ator Smith endorsed for governor are
hostile to Mr, Piles and would throw
cracked ice at his senatorial aspirations.

jail has been up for 40 years; It is about
as rotten -as it can be, and is full of
germs and Insects." :
"The city jail is a disgrace to port
land," said Dr. Zan this morning. : The
doctor' bas often made this statement
before, but after spending a few min
utes in the place yesterday he re
peated the remark with more force than
usual. .,
- "The old place needs aor many Im
provements that ' one ; would hardly
know where to begin them," continued
Dr.. Zan. "In the first place, it should
be cleaned out and whitewashed; paint
would be better than whitewash,: but
as only $1,000 has been allowed to im
prove the den, I am afraid that they
will think paint is too expensive, but
it should be . whitewashed without de
lay. ' ' " ' '
- "Then all the old bunks and what
scraps of bedding is now in the den

They, look with favor on Jacob Furth,
the president of the Puget Bound Na
tional bank, and of (he Seattle Electric
company. Mr. Furth Is easily one of
the strongest men politically in the state
as well as one of its wealthiest capital
ists. Furth, It, is said,' does not want
to make the race -for senator, but at
his back strenuously pushing him into
the sone of conflict are a number ot en
terprising and sagacious politicians who
want to see the next senatorial fight lull
of ginger and Interest.
Now, this faction is undoubtedly dom
inant, in King county politics, although
it has no hold on the city machine. Its
members' and followers are not for Bal
llnger. but they do like Tucker, the
Democratic nominee, who is a young and
very I popular lawyer with liberal pro
cllvitles. He la what may be termed a
"good fellow," with, everything decent
carried by the 'term and with none of
its reproach. The anti-Piles men did
not want Balllnger nominated for mayor.
but they were unsuccessful In persuad
lng any Republican of strong following
to. enter the primary contest against
hlm.- Theofflce-of-roayor of Seattle,
with Its great political power and $3,000
salary, literally went a-begglng. Jsai
linger did not want the nomination, and
turned it down repeatedly, accepting It
only after Piles and his friends insisted
that it was necessary to have a friendly
ally in the mayor's chair to carry the
city for the Piles ticket this fall.
Failing to . persuade some one to run
against Balllnger for the nomination,
the anti-Piles men sulked In their tents
and many of them did not go to the
primaries. - Tucker's nomination came
first and he quickly got under way in
the fight, capturing the . King County
Llauor Dealers' association, which in
Qorsed him. turning down Balllnger.
The liquor men are undoubtedly a power,
and the issue will decide the mooted
question, whether the saloon interests in
the business districts can deliver more
votes in Seattle at an election than can
the church people on the hill, Undoubt
edly, there will be much knifing of Bal
llnger by anti-Piles men. These nave
been inflamed by the conduct of Piles
senatorial managers, among them C. p,
ChamberlaHn. a political adviser of the
Great Northern management here. Cham
berlain undertook -to interfere in the
meeting of the slate committee here
last Saturday, which voted a one-con
ventlon call. The committee's action
politically put Governor McBride out
of business, at least in thla county, and
Chamberlain, in Plies' interest, sought
to interfere. Falling, he elicited only
abuse and derision from, the anti-Piles
politicians. - . i
Balllnger is known as a man or strong
convictions. . He is not wanting in back
bone. He- Is a man who seldom takes
drink, and it Is no secret that he is
strongly against any policy that would
"open" the town. If he Is elected, he
will undoubtedly suppress all forms of
gambling. Including the back-room poker
games and the "flyer" roulette and faro
layouts that appear from time to time.
His aversion to gambling in all forma
will result, it Is predicted, in the strong
est law -enforcement policy Seattle has
had for years. It Is this very fact that
makes it possible that Tucker will be
elected, for the business men of Seattle,
except the few ultra-churchmen, are
already complaining of dull times and
high rents, and believe that a liberal ad
ministration would materially help bust'
ness. It is constantly pointed out here
that Portland is wide open "and la get
ting the money that used to flow into
Seattle every winter before the town
was closed.
It is now predicted that the First
ward, which gave Humes (Rep.) for
mayor 400 majority two years ago, will
rive Tucker - (Detn.) between 600 and
700 majority. The First is the slum
ward, and has a very large vote. It
will be offset by the Seventh, the ban
ner Republican and residence ward of
the . city, where Balllnger's majority
should be very large, .providing the bust
ness men who are church people, deliver
the goods. The business men who are
not churchmen may cut down Balling'
er's majority some. The Third will go
for Balllnger. while the Fifth and Sixth,
from Pike street to the northern portion
of the waterfront, will probably go for
Sentiment changes quickly in Seattle
The city is normally Republican by 4,000
and it will take almost a landslide to
elect Tucker. - .

Then some arrangement should be
made whereby the place could have more
ventilation. As it Is little pure, air ever
reaches the inner cells and bunks. - Two
barred windows should be made and
thus allow a bit of sunshine axd pure air
to enter the place once in a-wnue.
"A bath tub- Is badly needed. Pris
oners in the city Jail often have to go
for days before then can get a half way
decent wash. Both ' of the local hos

them from the city Jail, although they
are very kind and never refuse an HI
person. But the man is first given
good bath before he is allowed near the
other patients. - , ,.

sum to make the city jail fit for humaa
