Sterile lUmedy Co., Chicago or H.Y,
It has been learned by City detectives
that Dr. Edwin Hughes and Mrs. J. A.
Hatch, who are said to have eloped from
North Yakima, Wash., accompanied -by
her 15-year-old daughter, left Portland
Friday night. By a roundabout route
they will go to San Francisco, with the
Intention of reaching southern Califor
nia. In their possession, It Is alleged, is
11.700 belonging i Hatch.
Dr. Hughea began his service as phy
sician In the Hatch family soma time
ago, according to Information placed In
th hands of th local police. Only a
short Time passed until Mrs. Hatch fell
deeply In love with him. Acting on his
advice, It Is amid, Mra Hatch Informed
her husband that her condition was such
that ahe despaired of ever getting well
She Is said to have mad this represen
tation after her health had been entire
ly recovered. . The solicitous husband
naturally Inquired of Dr. Hughes con
cerning her condition.
She Is In a bad way. th physician
Is alleged to have said, "and nothing will
benefit her but a change of climate. You
should send her to southern California
without loss of- time."
Believing that th life of his wlf
could only be saved by Immediately fol
lowing Dr. Hugh' advice. Hatch drew
$1,700 out of the bank, and gave It to her
for the expense of a trip and a few
months' residence In that state.
HI wlf had left North Yakima only
a short tint when Hatch received an In
timation that the relation she had sus
tained to Dr. Hughes was other than
that of patient. He made an Investiga
tion and learned that Dr. Hughes had
taken the same train' out of the city.
Hastening to Sheriff Grant, his bosom
friend, he confided his fears, and th
two set out In pursuit of Dr. Hughes
and th wife.
At Seattle th husband. It Is reported,
received full confirmation of his fears.
The couple evaded them there, reaching
Tacoma aafely. They were traced to
Tacoma, getting out of -that city a day
In advance of their pursuars. At Port
land the fugitives lay In hiding for a
few days, making their escape Friday
"Lt my wife go." said Hatch, "and If
they are found, don't quibble about th
money, but get my daughter."
But Detectives, Who Had Han
dled Similar Cases, Were
Not Consulted.
That the robbery of furs valued at
12.000 from H. I.lebes dV Co. waa re
ported to the police Is denied by the
chief, but this does not alter th fact
that the matter was brought to police
attention at once-. Detectives ' Snow.

All three detectives assert that If they
had known of the theft of furs from
I.lebes Co., incidents to which they
attached little Importance In th past
would have received more attention and
doubtless would have resulted In th
capture of th thivea. Detectives Day

By th advice of R Citron, his coun

Ruhl charged Patrolman Galbralth
with having struck him with a club, and
pleaded guilty In the police court to
drunkenness and was fined $20 'Patrol
man Galbralth waa ready for trial with
his witnesses. Dr. Slocum, the assistant
city physician, would have testified that
the wound on Ruhl's head was not In

Ruhl had no wltneaaes present. Asked
sbout them by his attorney, be said they

The city council has been Invited to
attend the meeting of tb license com
mittee to be held tomorrow afternoon
for the purpose of considering the
licenses for next year, as the committee
realises It has a big lob befor It In
making th many changea proposed in
the licenses for 1801.
Provision for licensing many new
lines of buainess which will come to
Portland for the exposition will have to
be made. There are lines of business
in litis city which ar ssld to be licensed
iyo heavily, while It Is considered that
-wet tax upon others Is not sufficiently
It Is proposed to draft a blanket ordi
nance covering all lines of business
which the council Intends taxing. Lines
will be closely drswn. as It Is desired to
iet as much revenue ss possible from
the license department this year.

Passing through the country, a tramp
i'. piled at a farmhouse and amid:
"It Is needless to aak you th question,

you? You will run around and see hus
sies on street corners and gtv people
a chance to Jeer at your wife, will you?
I will teach you. sir. to have mora re

for her as you should or not."
Accompanying this tirade cam the
sound of a heavy whip rythmloally de
scending on the head and shoulders of
Frank Dolan. who until two months ago
waa a member of the Portland police
force. Th blacksnake waa wielded by
hi' angry wife, Jealousy and Indignation
giving strength to Her blows. Th castl
gatlon occurred at Fifth and GUaan
Dojan tried hard to evade his wlf. but
waa unable to do much more than grope
blindly In her direction, owing to the
rain of blows which descended pitilessly
on his face. A large crowd soon sur
rounded the principals In the affair, but
no on triad to assist Dolan; amid
shouts of laughter his wlf waa encour
aged to ply her scourge more lustily.
Patrolman Kay finally appeared as Do
lan's savior. He separated th pair and
ordered Dolan to go home, threatening
to pla.-e him under arrest if 'he did not
Dolan hurried away.
"He made a date with another woman,
and I was waiting for her," sobbed Mrs.
Dolan, in explanation of her conduct.
"I followed him and gave him th whip
ping he deserved. It is shameful to be
disgraced In this manner."
The patrolman soothed Mrs. Dolan as
beat he could, and Induced her to follow
her husband home.
Dolan hadr trouble in the department,
which led to his resignation about two
months ago. Patrolman Sloan accused
him of acting as stool-pigeon for Chief
of Police Hunt, and waa following him
with the Intention of thrashing him. It
la said, when Dolan drew his revolver
and threatened to shoot. Following an
Investigation, Dolan yielded his star.
Nelson & White Are the Success
ful Bidders on a Quanti
tative Basis.
Contractors' Cost Will Be Little
Over One Hundred and Fif
teen Thousand Dollars.
Nelson & White, tne contractors who
are building the Great Southern railroad
from The Dalles to Dufur were today
awarded the contract for constructing
th Celilo portage road, on their bid of
$115,511, exclusive of rails and rolling
stock. The contract was awarded on the
quantity price basis, compensation to be
made according to the amount of mats
rials used and work don.
The award was made by th state
portage board, composed of Governor
Chamberlain, Stat Treasurer Moore and
Secrary of State Dunbar, assisted by
J. N. Teal, attorney for th Open River
association, Attorney General Crawford
and Stat Engineer A. J. McMillan. Nel
son White agfted to file a bond of
150,000 for faithful performance of the
contract, and to have the road com
pleted by May 16. Failure to have the
road done on that date will subject them
to payment of $500 a day until the Job
Is finished. Th remaining portion of
the state's 1161.000 appropriation for th
portage road, will be applied on cost of
rails and equipment, and the Open River
association will supply th deficit, which
will. It Is estimated, b about $16,000.
Th outcome of the advertisement for
bids Is gratifying to the Open River
executive commute and the state port
age board. It is thought the road can
be built and equipped complete for a
sum between $170,000 and $176,000.
There will b In th stat fund money
sufficient to build the road, and proba
bly a small balance will be left In th
treasury. Th Open River association
will probably enter Into a contract with
the state to equip the line. No second
hand equipment will be considered by
th association.

Neither this committee nor th execu

quiry into the additional work "further
than waa made ut the time it was or
dered. The recant investigations of Madison
Welch were confined to the bridge prop
er, were of a mechanical nature and wer
made merely to determine th quality of
steel used and. If th structural plecea
were up to specifications in sis. The
committee at that time did not deem It
necessary to probe into the additional
work awards, but was willing to stand
on the Judgment of th city engineer as
expressed in h)s recommendations and
the facts revealed to the-ewnmtttee at
th time of authorising tb' work.
Of th report made by Charles 8. Blh
