- A rain storm arrived from the sea

' Not since June t has there been any
rain throughout he Willamette valley,

beginning to. wonder when they would

has been several good showers In the

Kruger, better known as "Oom Paul."
former president of the Transvaal re
public., died at I o'clock thla morning at
Clarens in the Swiss canton of Vaud.
He had been 111 for mora than a year,
and viewed the end philosophically, say.

' Death Waa directly due to heart weak

Thla request la In accordance with the
wish often expreessed by Kruger that he
might ' be buried beside his late wife. -
Stephen John Paul Kruger, Boer
pioneer, patriot and statesman, was bom
In Cape Colony in IMS and when a child
was one of the great party that trekked
Into the Interior ef Africa, rather than
liberate their slaves, an order for whose
emancipation had been promulgated by
the British government. Throughout
hla early life he participated In the bat

Boer efforts to subjugate a land. It

bitious man and immediately after his
election to the presidency of tbs South
African republic in 188 began to-Intrigue
with Germany . In the hope of
gaining access to the sea for his coun
try1. . He. was re-elected president in
1888. in 18l. and again In 188, but
failed to attain hla object.
Kruger successfully ended the Jamie-
son raid la which John Hays Hammond,
the American mining engineer, par
ticipated .and Strengthened his hold on
the government by forming around hire
a ring of such power that none could
obtain franchise or concession without
hla consent. He built up a salary and
emolument for his office that exceeded
by nearly double the Inoome of the
president of the United States, largely
by the taxation of the Uitlsnders who
were denied the right of franchise.
In lit came the Boer war In which
Kruger with charaoterlstlo energy and
quickness, hurled - his army over the
border, , thue beginning hostilities on
British territory. . The long war- which
followed and which cost so many lives
ended ths Independence of his country.
Kruger Is supposed to have plunged
hla government into war with the idea
that he would receive the support of
Germany and Holland. In thla he' waa
mistaken. He early went to these coun
tries end when the end finally came was
practically discredited by his own peo

From offlclal sources It was learned
today that if the houses are once (closed,

of the city who has to do with the
gambling cases now on In the municipal
court that Mayor Williams wants a
closed town, but wants some one other
than himself to take the action; but
that if the district attorney or any one .
else causea gambling to- cease, the
mayor , will not permit it to resume.--

"Well. I cannot make any .statement
about It." was his reply. '
, Attorney Murphy, acting for the Or
pheura. gambling house, whose rooms
were closed by the police Tuesday night,
laid complaints before District attorney
Manning last night against the Portland
club and August Erlckson's eatablisb
menta Mr., Manning will issue lnfor
matlona against them in the circuit
court this afternoon or early tomorrow.
Warrants will Issue from - the circuit

, The cases against Proprietor McDevItt
of the Orpheum bouse, and hla players

nicipal court tomorrow morning. In
case . they are found guilty and their
fines exceed 120, their cases will alao go

In the higher courts, thus relieving the
city administration of the burden.

District Attorney Manning has fre
quently made the statement that he
would take no action relative to gam

That time has come and It la believed,
the day of public gambling in Portland

- "I will repeatedly make complaint
against any and all gamblers If they '
attempt to .reopen after having been

"Chief Hunt has said he will close the
