Nevermore will the city auditor and county clerk tear their hair and gnash their teeth hunting for polling places, and then pay exorbitant rents. If the city council and county commisslonera adopt the portable, knockdown polling booths that these two officials will recommend. City Auditor Barbur and County Clerk Fields have been quietly gathering data on portable, knockdown booths and find they will be much more acceptable than the present system. The last munici pal election revealed the fact that the city was compelled to pay rentals on polling places and furniture greatly In excess of reasonable figures. The -councllmen contend that the rent wanted hy one furniture company would have paid for all the furniture used 1 had the city bought it outright. The city has resisted payment of the bill i as presented by the furniture company. I Mr. Barbur received a letter this morning from San Francisco stating that the portable polling booth plan had been found most economical and they should have recognition," said W. K. Jeffress, a Portland traveling man connected with Crane oi Co., dealers in plumbing supplied 'The idea rias been brought to my at tention, and I have derided that I will ran. The traveling men will support me, and my acquaintance among busi ness men Is large as a result of 10 years of traveling throughout the state. Hale of nlumbtiiK supplies ami water pipe to cities has placed me In with the right people who nave Influence and will use it in my favor." Mr. Jeffress aald the traveling men are the best boosters and advertisers for any state or community, and they have urged him to he a candidate. Other business acquaintances have told him to go In for the prli", and advised him that It Is within his reach. A southern Oregon acquaintance told him It would be practically a winning for him, and that he should "go to It. "I do not believe politics ought to have anything to do with the railroad commlsslonershlp, Mr. Jerrress de dared, when asked concerning his plat form. "The onlv thin to be consid ered la the man, and it makes no differ, ence what nartv he Is connected with. That Is the right principle In regard to this office, if pontics governed tne question of selection. George C. Cham berlain would not be governor of Ore gon." Mr. Jeffress has been a traveljng salesman for the Crane company II years. The first six years wara spent In California territory, and 10 years ago he came to the service of the Portland house. He is an Independent In politics, and a stalwart advocate of the Interests of the traveling men's profession. He said he possessed a good general knowl edge of the needs of the shipper, and the principles of railroad traffic, that would enable him to serve the best In terests of the public. The first election of a railroad commissioner occurs next year under the new Oregon commission law. The law provided that the first three commissioners should be ap pointed by the governor, and that sub sequent commissioners should be elected by the people.

PEIIDLnOII PLAN TO FINISH STARK STREET DOCK BEFORE NEXT ROSE FIESTA Plans for the Stark street dock are rapidly nearlng completion and will he submitted to the council at Its next session by the harbormaster. The sketches provide for a concrete dock throughout and it Is estimated that about 12.000 yards of this material will be needed. A competent engineer has stated that 160 piles will be necessary to sink Into' the ground for a founda tion for the concrete structure. In the nlans as now outlined concrete wall will be built out to the harbor line on both sides of Stark atreet. These will be connected at the harbor line by a concrete end wall. I ne grane or mo end wall will be 20 feet above low water mark and a flight of cement stairs will lead from the top down across the face of the end wall to a lower landing at dead low water. By having a float moored alongside these stairs the dock will be available for all kinds of small craft, which will be able to land at any stage of the river. The Stark atreet dkek la now the only free landing place in the city and It Is the desire to make it especially secure and attractive. It is hoped that the dock can be In commission on the occasion of. the visit of warships to the next Rose fiesta and on similar events next spring. The cost will he slight, owing to the character of construction demanded. It la not figured that the concrete dock will cost over IIS. 000 complete and when the start is once made the marine officials do not think It will require over three or four months to build the dock. prominent leaders ' JIake Addresses Fair Finan 'cial Success.

Tacoma. Wash., -Sept 28. McNeil's Island was the scene of an exciting man hunt late yesterday afternoon, when Hermand Wendt, the convict counter feiter who was sentenced to the federal penitentiary from Seattle, escaped for the third time from prison. After be ing absent from the penitentiary but three houra he was recaptured and brought back. Guards McGerry and Radle made the capture. Wendt fol lowed the same tactics that he did on both former occasions when he escaped, making straight across the island to the' coastline of the channel. McGerry and Radle believed the man had so done and without slopping to search by the way made straight across the island. Onathe high bluff overlooking the chan nerthey saw Wendt on a by-path some distance ahead. They shouted to him to surrender, and he gave himself up without a protest taking . the . turn of fortune, with his usual good hujsaor. i Wendt made his first escape in May. psvhen he was gone nearly a week, being recapiureo in a starving condition. He was then kept in irons more than a month and again escaped in July- and re mained in the woods three days before being taken, Since his second escape and recapture he has been kept in irons, but yesterday in some manner unknown except to himself he succeeded in free lng himself. Wendt is thought by the prison of ficers to be of unsound mind. He takes chances in these breaks which.
