dlspose of it to other campers and for
that purpose went over to Perrlne's
camp. The J'crrlivca had gone to tho
beach and left tha lad, I.yle. to guard
tho camp. It Is presumed young Per
rlne saw Mr. Quick approaching and
mistook lilm for a burglar. .The shoot
ing was done with a SO-SO rifle, the
bullet striking the loft side and enter
ing the heart, death being almost In
stantaneous. The boy rushed out, and
meeting Thomas Anderson, told him
what he had done. Quick had expired
hen Anderson arrived on the scene.
Mr. Quick was 7G -years old and was
one of Crms .county's most well known

Lieutenant McOowan of San Francisco,
arrived here. He also had a request
for the extradition of the prisoners.
McQpwan was accompanied by Miss
Gladys McN'nmara wo hoped to effect
a reconciliation Dciween ner rattier and
motiier. "
When MeNamara and his daughtor
reached the Hotel Knickerbocker, they
learned for the first time that Mrs. Me
Namara had started for San Francisco,
accompanied by Patrick Walsh, her,
chauffeur. McOowan, with Miss Per
kins and "Pttermfl"tn custody, - started
for San Francisco this afternoon.
"They have become the tools of cor
rupt Interests."
"In particular," reads the. platform,
"the party decrees for direct primaries
for the nomination of state and national
officers, the national-wide preference
primaries for candidates for the presi
dency; for the direct election of United
States senators by tho people." A short
ballot Is urged, "with responsibility to
the people secured by the Initiative, ref
erendum and recall."
On labor, the platform says;
"We believe that the issuance of in
junctions in caseaf arising out of labor
disputes sHould be prohibited when such
injunctions would not apply when no
labor disputes existed.
"We also believe that a person cited
for contempt In labor disputes; except
when such contempt, was committed In
the aotual presence of the court or so
near there as to Interfere with the
proper administration of justice should
have a right to trial by Jary."

The states that have recently passed upon and decided against
competition between public utilities rendering the same character of
service in the same community areT
Those holding to the contrary, none (so far as known).
What does the ruling mean? That Portland would make a hub
take if it legally authorized the duplication of all the poles, all the
wire, all the conduits, all the sub-stations and all waterpower plants
of the existing company, by granting a franchise to anqther light and
power concern.
In other words, it is not sound economic doctrine to fasten upon
the consuming public a yearly interest charge of several hundred
thousand dollars, when a regulative act, controlling rates, service and
tion is-within the reach of the community.
