the efforta of persons who accompanied
the Investigating committee uninvited
to determine for themselvea the nature

When the Investigation committee

descend Into the sewer there were a
dosen men In waiting; each was supplied
with chisel and hammer. They followed
the committee aa Soon as they descended
Into the sewer.
At frequent Intervale along the route
the men atopped and pounded holea In
the aides of the walls. Many blocka of
brick and cement were driven from their
places, and numerous holea were left.
It is estimated that at least $20 will
be necessary to repair each hole, and
that there are enough holes to increase

aid a member of the committee, "but
they followed us In and used their
chisels and hammers promiscuously.
And their efforta were useless, for one
could easily aee that they didn't know
what they were doing or anything at all
.bout the construction of such a piece
of work."
Investigation of the Tanner oreek

perts and property owners Is proceed
ing today. Early thla morning) they
went Into the tunnel In search of de

was - very bad. The committee walked
through the drain making a superficial
examination, but decided to wait until
thla morning to allow the air to circu

There Is much conjecture about what

that the Investigators will And the sewer

the property owners and the council,
while others are of the opinion that

It will take the remainder of thla
week to complete the investigation. The
experts have been instructed to do their
work well and to find defects If there
Are any.
"It has been stated that our bank fur
nished the money to Mr. Miner for the
construction of the Tanner creak sewer
and It doesn't exsotly do us credit.'' said
W. Cooper Morris, cashier of the Oregon
Savings bank. Sixth and Morrison
streets, this morning. "We loaned the
mners a email portion ox me money
used In the construction of the Tanner
creek sewer, but we are amply secured
outside of this contract.
"And I might say further, that If It
became necesaary we have sufficient
security to justify us -in rebuilding the

"T'nless your commercial body takes
thla matter up at once. It will come to
Portland and organise a good roads
league, and do a work that your body
ought to do," declared J. H. Scott of
Salem, president of the Oregon Qood
Roads association, In a letter to the
Portland chamber of commerce.
"Almost every county In the stste
has taken more Interest In this work
than has Multnomah county,' Mr. Scott
wrote, "and I believe that you will
agree with me when I aay there la not
a county In the stste that would receive
as much benefit nor la there a county in
the stat that can do so much good for
th cause, as Multnomah county.
Smaller counties have often aaked what
Is Multnomah county doing for the
cause? And the answer thus far haa
tended to discourage the people In other
sections of the state In the performance
of their duties relative to this matter.
The best commercial bodlea In Washing
ton and California are taking up high
way Improvement In great earnest, and
doing much good."
President Scott puts in an urgent plea
for Portland to send a large delegation
of good men to the state convention of
the Qood Roads league to be held at
Salem, December 11 and I. The cham
ber of commerce will appoint delegatea
to the meeting, and on their return ac
tion will be taken to form a strong

As ths treaty with China expires to
day many local authorities havs ad
vanced he theory that the Chines ex
clusion law Is no longer operative. Un
less the law should be re-enacted with
out delay they hold that there la noth-
ng to prevent residents from the Flow
ery Kingdom from coming here by the
shipload, and in order to land they will
not have to go through the formality of
consulting United States Immigration
agenta further than to prove that they
are not paupers or affected with a con
tagious disease.
Hut that view is entirely wrong," de
clared Chinese Inspector Barbour this
morning. "The exclusion law will re
main In force until It la repealed, modi
fied or re-enacted. It Is true that It was
made up largely from ths old treaty
with China, which ceases to exist from
this date. But a new treaty Is being
prepared, and until Its completion and a
new exclusion act haa been pasaed by
congress the old law will continue in
force. Thla la the opinion of the most
talented legal lights In ths country."

Paul, but gradually he will thrust his
young star toward Broadway. The new
deal will in no way Interfere with Miss
Brandt's present engagement.

Treasurer Saye the Principles of
American Liberty Are In
volved in His Case.
City Treasurer J. K Werleln still de
fies ths civil service commission by re
taining J. S P. Copeland as clerk In
his office and refusing to appoint Ed
win W. Jones, the only applicant whose
nam was certified to th treasurer from
the commission.
Rumors that Werleln was to be ar
rested today on complaint of ths com
mission for not complying with the city
charter have not materialised. He I
still of th opinion that drastic measures
will be taken In order to fore him to
do as th commission desires.
"I believe I am right In the stand I
have taken." said Werleln today. "Th
principle of American liberty I Involved
In this mstter, and I do not believe It Is
right to force me to take any person
they thrust upon me.
"I do not desire to have any serious
trouble with the commission, and I am
willing to meet them in conference and
explain my side of this question.
"From this time on I will be very busy
In my office, and to bring In a new man
and train him for the work that Is be
fore me Is almost Impossible. I WSS
without a clerk here for several montha
and I told the members of th commis
sion thst If thsy would bring me a good
man whom they could personally recom
mend I would sccept him. I waited un
til a short tlm ago, and thsy sent me
no one, and I went out and engagsd Mr.
Copeland. I have trained him for the
work, and I intend to keep him here, as'
he suits ma
"I was told by Mayor Wllllama that
two of the members of th commission
were In favor of meeting me half way
In thla matter, but the other member
wanted to force me to accept Mr. Jones."
It Is understood that Treasurer Wer
leln has secured Henry McGinn as his
attorney, and City Attorney McNary
