of Good 'Government
Demand Mayor's Reelection.
Set New Standard
The follo.wing is a personal. letter received by a vfrien(i from the
Rev. Stephen, S. Wise, formerly rabbi of Congregation Beth Israel:
"New York,- May 22. I am deeply interested, I need hardly
say,' m. the coming J mayoralty election. I rejoiced to - learn that
'Mayor Lane had been' renominated at the primaries without lift
inga finger in his own behalf. I hope with all my heart that
Mayor Lane may be triumphantly reelected. - I am thinking not at
all of Mayor Lane? I am thinking altogether of the best interests
of the city of Portland and of the opportunity which the citizenship
of l'ortland faces, at the coming election to demonstrate that good
government is not to be an experiment, but is to be permanently es
"The defeat of "Mayor Lane at this time wouldrbe a grave set
back to the cause of municipal' government in America. Mayor
Lane has rendered noteworthy service to the city of Portland
throughout the last two years. He has not been a Democratic
mayor; but the mayor of a whole city, and I daresay that not even
the most partisan Republican will venture to doubt for a moment
that Mayor Lane's administration has -set a new standard in the
conduct of municipal affairs for future-incumbents of the mayoral
office. ' : ; . ' ; :" ' ' . '"
"In all the years of my mannooi I 'do not know, of a mayor who
has served the welfare fef Jiis --sity, with Uitf devotion .and wjsdojm
than has Mayor Lane. - If I were a citizen of Portland 1 would
k labor earnestly for his reelection, although, ras you know, I am a
Roosevelt Republican, Lane is a Roosevelt Democrat.
"I have no fear that Mayor Lane will fail of election. The elec
torate of Portland is too independent and discerning to fail to re
ward a faithful public servant. His defeat, which , is unthinkable,
would be tantamount to an invitation to partisanship to resume its
domination of municipal affairs-in Portland.. We are fast reach
ing the time when men will be as little concerned about the national
political affiliations of a candidate for municipal office as they are
in the cut of his coat. I rejoice to think that Portland has already
''led the way. ..
"Time and again since I have come to New York I have spoken
x at public meetings of the almost unique political independence and
integrity of the yoters of Portland and Oregon. I know Portland
so well and I love Portland so well that I feel assured that Mayor
Lane will be reelected to th office the duties of which he has for
two years discharged with1 fidelity, impartiality and integrity.

Man Who Pleaded .Guilty to Sending an Obscene Letter
Through Mails to Female Horsethief Breaks4 Down
"When Sentenced to Five Months in Jail.
Eighteen days and nights . without
sleep was the direct cause of ' William
Shuman shedding copious tears when he
pleaded guilty before Judge Charles E.
Wolverton in the United States district
court IIiIh morning "of sending an ob
scene letter through the mail to Annie
Walker, the famous Montana girl horse
thief. A possible sentence of five years
at McNeils island and a possible fine
of $5,(100 were otily secondary circum
stances that-caused Shuman to over

months In the county Jail.
Shuman put up a plea full of heart
rending, lachrymose statements, "v In
whlelv he told of the wrongs perpe
trated upon him by the strenuous An
nie.' Especially did he dwell tnpon the
attempt of .Annie to kill ; him. Five
cartridges whistled about and through
his body before he could put bullet dis
tance between himself and the. fair
Amaeon.' In qurt Shuman pointed
wildly at his arm and hand, where some

"Why didn't you sever your, relations
with the girl?" asked, the court.
"I did try to, but, she loved me so, I
could not break away," . was the -.reply.
Shuman told between his sobs how
he met Miss Walker In Taeomafell In
love with her and she with ?hlm, and
then how he tried to live apart from her
when he learned of her past reputa
tion, and from all that has been-said
of Annie she has ji past that reflects
creait upon jsnunmn s decision to r
fuse to have anything to do with her.
He went to Srattla. Annie follow.d
him and 'when she had hlrh cornered,

by Mr. -Anderson against some certain
