the city as a whole will be short of

required for the construction of the
aqueduct. For this reason th offi

point to the aqueducts the Romans built
centuries ago, and which have withstood
the wear of time in a remarkable man

Franc and Germany have recently built
huge water tunnels of reinforced con

companies say the coat of such an aque
duct will be cheaper than u, constructed
of steel pipe, a number of property
owners who have been looking Into the
matter declare that they would be will

price for the pipeline if there was any

have to be renewed every do sen years

Portland. Or., Oct. II. To th Editor
of the Journal The writer of thla pro
test was aa eye-witness of th recapture
of a man named J. Hogsell. near second
and Stark streets, last Wednesday aft
ernoon, by three policemen, one of
whom certainly added an act of unneces- j
sary brutality .to, his record and gave
ample evidence of detestable cowardice
by repeatedly striking- th prisoner '
while he was securely held by the other
officers and was not making th least
effort at resistance.
This exhibition of brawn, muscle and
lack of common sense called down upon
the officer tba eevereet censure of
nearly a score of men who were eye
witnesses to the disgraceful act, and
many of whom are business men of un
questioned Judgment. They war not
slow to express their disgust with the
unwarranted abuee of a helpleaa prls
onsr'oy a man who plainly said by his
actions, "I am a big policeman; I'll
smash somebody because I can."
Below will be found the name of sev
eral who expressed their desire to tes
tify to the brutality of tba officer and
signed their name to a list, all of
whom urge that some action be taken.
The writer, fully realises the difficul
ties that beset an officer in dealing
with desperate lawbreakers, and further,
that a guardian of th law should have
the unqualified support of all respect
able citizens while discharging his du
ties In a manly way. But there are too
many men who are unfit to be clothed
with the authority of the law, because
they use the authority as a license to
gratify a cowardly desire to make a
show of "nerve" and "strength." And
a very noticeable feature In most such
cases Is that this particular kind of of
ficer seldom catches a murderer, robber
or burglar; plain drunks and unresist
ing Offenders of the less harmful class
are their "specialty." They certainly
steer clear of the "dangerous class" here
