Marion P.: Maus Gives Stale
il ment Before tfie "Grand
' Jury.
General Marlon P. Mautf of the
United States army, stationed at Van
couver post, wan before the grand jury
this morning to enter a formal com,
plaint against the Dally News. Ills
testimony was to refute the statement
published in that paper recently fhat
he waa intoxicated on the field during
the recent maneuvers between the Bluu
and Red armies.
The genera also had with lilm Lieu
tenant Whitney and Colonel Young, both
from the barracks, end Dr. K. A. J.
Mackenzie, K. C. Mers and James
Wood, all from Portland. Besides the
general, Lieutenant Whitney and Col
onel Young went before the grand Jury,
testifying that the general was not In
toxicated. Upon leaving the jtiryroom. General
Maus said: "The statement that I was
Intoxicated is absolutely false, and 1
nothing more or less than a malicious
sttack upon me. No one was more sur
prised than myself to see such a state
ment in print. It is the first time I
have been so attacked."
When asked If he contemplated action
sgalnst any persons- supposed til have
inspired the article, tho general had
nothing to say,. The complaint is an
outgrowth of the trouble at Hate.
Wash., where the Oregon National
Guard was given orders to make an
other march, which onlers were given
to Colonel Scott, he and his subordinate,
officers failing to carry them out. The
Oregon men claim they did not disobey
orders from General Maus, and that a
misunderstanding between themselves
and the regular army officers existed.
It Is over this controversy that the regi
ment has been ordered disbanded, und
the officers to be given a hearing.

The First (Taylor Street) Methodist
church and the Grace Methodist Epis
copal church Wire formally consoli
dated last night at the quarterly ron
frence of the First church when a dec
laration of consolidation adopted at the
Grace church conference last week was
ratified. Only one negative vote
against merging the congregations was
cast, despite tho fact that the question
was'debated for more than two hours.
Although 'consolidation is welcomed
by the majority of members of tho two
churchea, many old members of the
First church in particular opposed the
step for sentimental reasons. Ever
since the development of the city left
the mother church In the business dis
trict, the question of consolidation has
been before the congreRatlons.
Although the two churches are now
legally one, they will continue as sepa
rate bodies until the merger la ratified
at the annual conference In Ashland,
September IS to 23.
At the close of the conferenre, Rlshop
Cooke will appoint a pastor for tho
new church which will be known as
'The First Methodist Episcopal church
of Portland."
It Is understood that Rev. .Benjamin
Young, for the last five years pastor of
the First church, will be appointed, and
Rev. J. H. Cudlipp, four years pastor
of the Grace church, will accept a call
tn the east which has been tendered
Both Rev. Cudlipp and Rev. Youn?:
believe that consolidation is the proper
course to pursue.
Under recommendations prepared by
a Joint committee of the ehurches, the
First church will be dismantled and
the site will be converted into Income
producing property. The present Grace
church will be torn down also and a
new church will be' built on the site at
an estimated cost of $150,000.
At present It is planned to mave the
Grace church congregation to the Tay
lor street church, pendln? the construc-
4t4-of-4h prped edifiev at Twelfth
and Taylor streets, where Grace church
Is located.
It Is also the Intention of the church
authorities to sU the Taylor street
parsonage, at Eleventh and Salmon
streets which Is valued at $40,006. The
remaining sum necessary to defray the
cost of a new church Is to be raised
by subscription.
The proposed new church will have a
seating capacity of 2000. At present
the seating capacity of tho Grace church
Is $00 and at the Taylor street church.
JO0 can be seated. The Grace congrega
tion numbers about TOO, and the Taylor
street 1200.
A quarterly conference of the new
ohurch will be called soon at which
church officers wjll be selected.
An arraignment of the people of
Portland and of the chamber of com

Jackson in an address before the Rotary
club meeting in the Commercial club
this afternoon.

this port, and, on the principle that one

"Tho question of maintaining the
oriental line involves evsry man above
a mole hill in this city," said tho speak
er. "But this question has been neg
lected.' The chamber of commerce has
never given the matter serious con
sideration. Mr. Sohwfrin, who has been
detailing the losses of the servtoe,
never tried tr build up an oriental line
out of Portland.
Business Kept Away.
"AVe are always disposed to let some
one else do tiiesn things for us and this
disposition bus brought Portland to her
present piekln.
"The lllll lines have served the Port
of Hcnttie and have served It so well
that they get nearly all our business.

It 1h possible n"w that the Hill lines
will do ns much for Portland, but so far
the business that should have been
brought to this port has been kept

Says Line Would Be Supported,
Mr. Jackson paid his n-speets to the
collector of customs und the customs
house, saying that despite denials by of
ficials, he believed Mr. Schwerin's com
plaint that he had met trouble there was
probably well founded, this due to the
fact that the customs house had been
run like any other customs office, with
great amounts of red tape and little
lie said that tho chamber of com
merce ought to be composed of the 264
citizens of Portland who represent $35,
000 on the tax books, but claim to be,
a large' number of them, millionaires
when reporting to Bradstreets and
Dun's. These would have to have a
change of heart and attitude first, said
the speaker.

Albany, Or.. Aug. 20. Although many
people here say the activity of the police
in raiding alleged blind pigs has been
a bluff for effect alone, there Is, never
theless, a marked Improvement noticed
in conditions here since Governor West's
crusade, begai)v Mat)y. of the places that
have been running wide open heretofore
are now closed so. that not even the
regular patrons of the past can secure
liquor. It is freely claimed that the re
form will be-only temporary, that soon
the blind pigs will be going full blast
again, and -that the present drought If

raid and cleanup bj Governor West
But at any rate, the conditions at pres
ent arc certainly of a higher tone than
they were a few weeks ago.
The establishment of Al Peacock was
raided six times yesterday. On five of
the, occasions, beer waa found In the
place and destroyed. At the sixth trip
no beer was found. It has been sug

Washington, Aug 20 The naval ap
propriation bill, providing for one battle
ship, was passed this afternoon by the
hotts-ef representati ves, the -conferenre
report being approved by a voto of 151
to' 50. Nine Democrats and one Repub
lican voted against concurring in the
repiiu't. The measure now goes to the
president for his approval.
The Democrats who voted against the
bill were those who oppose making any
appropriation for the construction of
battleships. In the debate which pre
ceded the vote. Congressman J. L. Slay,
den of Texas charged that an organized
attempt was being made to "browbeat
the house Democrats into favoring the
construction of two battleships."
Congressman J. L. Burnett of Ala
bama accused Congressman William
Sulzer of New York, who had made a
strong fight for two battleships, of at
tempting to pose aa "the man who pos
sessed all the concentrated wisdom of
the house."
A Httlo copper box, discolored nd
worn by time, was tho object' that at
tracted Chief Dowell and all the battal
ion chief of the city fire department at
the city hall today to the chief's officio,
the box having been dug out of tha
ruins of the old fire station at Second
and Oak streets this morning. The
bqx was burled in the corner (tone of
the station September 5. 1874, is
crammed f till of historic relics;
The first of tbesa relics to he un
covered to view when tho box was chis
eled open was a olty directory of 1174,
presented by L. Samuel, the pioneer in
surance man. Mr. Samuel was then a
newspaper advertising agent, according
to an announcement that appears In the
Portland Had Boosters Then.
According to an announcement mado
In the directory, the city had a popula
tion of about 13.000 In 1874. Henry Fall
ing was mayor at that time and pre
sided at the corner stone exercises at
tendant on the construction of the fire
station which was built to house Mult
nomah engine company No. 2.
Portland had Its boosters then as now
and, Judging from one of the documents
in the old box, A. B. Hallack was the
chief of these?. His little history, en
titled "Oregon as It Is" Is a quaint
literary gem replete with information
Intended to draw the homeseek-cr to the
land of opportunity.
One of the features of the history Is a
paragraph headed "Danger of Indians.
"A man is in more danger of being
robbed and murdered by whites in New
Yorki than h is of being killed by In
dians In Oregon," says the historian, "I
found many people on my recent tour of
the east, continues the paragraph, "who
has been led to believe that the Oregon
farmer followed his plough with a
shotgun In one hand and a rifle strapped
to his back, ever on the alert to keep
his scalp from adorning the festive
wigwam of a wily aborigine.
Impression Is Kldloulsd.
"Many people still, believe Oregon Is
a trackless wilderness Infested by sav
ages hungry for blood and ever anxious
to add a long string of Anglo-Saxon
scalps to the flaps of their tepees."
The writer then goes on to ridicule
such an Impression, the article being
Intended to lure the Investor to the
Beaver state.
One of the Items of Information con
tained In the report of the fire depart
ment for 1874 was that it cost $8204
to run the department that year. Quite
a contrast then and now. It cost more
than $600,000 to operate the fire de
partment last year.
