ON A WIN LIST KRUSFS FINANCIAL AFFAIRS EXPLAINED Wife of Missing Hotel Man Throws New Light on Mystery. Mrs. Theodore Kruse, wife of tho missing hotel man, in explaining the statement credited to her that Mr. Kruno's financial affairs were in very bad shape, stated today that she did not know Mr. Krue's real state flnan dally, and was unable to make any estimate of his assets, although she was sure they must total much more than $37,000. "Surely, no bank would offer to ad vanro $25,000 or 130,000 to a man whoso assets were hardly more than that amount," said Mrs. Kruse. "As far as cash is concerned, he may not have had any great ' amount on hand. I do not know exactly what his llabtUtles were, either, as 1 had never .gone Into' that part of his affairs." According, to the contract which cov ered the taking over of the Carlton ho tel, Mr. Kruse was not to make the pay ment of 30,000 or more which would remain on the furniture on the first of September. He was allowed to make this amount in 24 equal monthly pay ments, the first to be made on the day that the hotel was turned over to him. The $16,00 deposit made with Gevurta A Sons was forfeited when he failed to appear to sign the lease on the first of September and will remain so as far as Kruse is concerned. Mrs. Kruse has been given the privilege of taking over the hotel within six months on the same terms that It was offered to Mr. Kruse, and the $16,000 will be applied to the purchase price. AH that they ask is to bo reimbursed for their expenditures "I feel that the worry connected with the taking over of the big hotel has unbalanced his mind," said Mrs. Kruse, "and that he is wandering about some where. He may have taken a boat from Seattle either to British Colum bia, Alaskafc China or California. ' The report that he was seen in a grill room in Seattle had no foundation and was a pure myth. I am hoping to hear from him every day and believe he is alive." Street Committeemen Visit Se attle, Where System Is Inspected. Three members of the street com mittee of the city council and City At torney Grant have returned from a visit to Seattle, where they went to investigate street paving. The mem bers of the committee were Allan R. Joy, B. O. Rector and Mr. Magulre. "We went to Seattle particularly to Investigate the use of vitrified brick paving," said Councilman Joy. "Ws saw some of It that had been down for 18 years, In the heart of the heavy traffic and it seemed about as good as new. The pavement wears smooth. "While there we visited the big vitri fied brick manufacturing plant which Is said to be the largest in the world. The plant turns out 185.000 bricks a day. . This factory has an agency In Portland which proposes to bid on soma of our street paving. This Is why we made the trip at this time. "The first cost of vitrified brick pav Ing Is much greater than other pave ments, but it is claimed for It that it Is cheaper In the long run, because it wears so much better. The cost Is about $3 a square yard." Mr. Joy said the members of the committee also Inspected Seattle's boul evard and park systems, which, he said, are much nicer than those of Portland. While the members of the committee made their trip of Inspection upon the recommendation of the council, they went at their own expense. CREMATORY BEHER "We have a better garbage crematory than the one at Vancouver, B. C," said Mayor Rushlight who returned last night from a trip of Inspection to the Canadian city. "Both are of the same type, but it seemed to me that ours Is better constructed. "The one at Vancouver has a capac ity of 100 tons of garbage a day, and the superintendent claims It will con sume more than that amount On ac count of the cheap 'fuel there he said the cost of operating the plant was 40 cents a ton."

OF RECALL Will Not Pay Any Attention to It, He Says Rev. Hinson Should Help Rather Than "Knock," Avers Executive. When Mayor Rushlight returned to his office In the city hall this morn ing, after an absence of three days, a crowd of people was in his outer office awaiting his arrival. Among them was Acting Mayor George Baker, president of the council. "Good morning," said Mayor Rush light In greeting to the crowd. "Good morning," Mr. Mayor," said Councilman Baker. "A preacher la in your private office waiting tojjee you." A broad smile spread over Mayor Rushlight's face before he replied, say ing: "Tou are a great mayor for me to leave at the head of the city, .caus ing people to begin to talk 'recall' with in $4 hours." By the hearty laugh that followed it did not seem that the suggestion of invoking the recall against Mayor Rush light, made by Rev. W. B, Hinson in his sermon at the White Temple Sunday evening, was worrying the mayor very greatly. "I don't Intend to pay any atten tion whatever to such talk," Mayor Rushlight said to a Journal reporter. "I am doing the best 1 can to adminis ter the affairs of the city for the great est benefit of the greatest number of people. I am doing what I can to clean the city of vice conditions, and I ex pect the help of good citizens. "The Commercial club of Portland Is spending thousands upon thousands of dollars for the promotion and the de velopment of our city and state. "If this letter Rev. Mr. Hinson refers to In his sermon Is discouraging peo ple from coming to Portland. It is his duty as a good citizen to take the let ter up with the Commercial club and with the executive head of the city gov ernment and see whether the statements In the letter are facta or not before throwing them out broadcast to be copied in all the newspapers of the coun try, casting disgrace on the city. "If it is his desire to have good government It Is his duty to assist, the administration to enforce the laws, and not be sending out broadcast the state ment that Portland Is loose and open to the admission of criminals and people of questionable character, causing, through such false statements, an In flux of this undesirable class. "The administration Is hampered enough by having an inadequate police Jtorce. uunng my term or two months in office we have discharged two detec tives, one sergeant of police, and three patrolmen, one of whom has been In dicted by the grand Jury. The princi pal reason for their dismissal was their Inability to enforce the laws. "It Is very hard for the administra tion to get the necessary evidence needed in the cases referred to owing to the fact the average Information we receive Is given by people In a laxative way. When we request' them to pre sent the evidence they have so we may use it for the benefit of the city, they shrink away and say they don't want to get mixed up In the matter, or don't want any notoriety."
