They Had Merely Talked With the
Representative in Regard to the
Appropriation for the Holland Sub
Washington, D. C, Jan. 24. The
house committee on naval af
fairs at 11 this morning resumed the
Lessler investigation. Doblin was the
first witness and said he had been In
politics in New York for 20 years.
He helped to elect Lessler and made
Lessler's office his headquarters. He
did not know how Lessler stood on
the Holland boat question until he
had a talk with Qulgg, who men tion
ed the Roberts bill which provides
for 10 submarine boats. Qulgg was
anxious to get Lessler's support. He
said, " I do not want It for myself,
but a friend told me that there was
$5,000 in It and thought he could get
a thousand for me.
When the subject was broached to
Lessler, he said, "Stop, say no more."
The same day I saw Qulgg and told
him It could not be done. Qulgg said
he was very sorry. He afterward saw
the representative of the Holland
boat, who told me he felt sorry that
Lessler was so antagonistic. In a
few days he appeared before the Bub
marine committee here nnd told them
what I knew of the case.
McCullough, the state superintend
ent of elections in New York, was the
next witness. He testified that he
had merely called on Lessler in tbe
Interest of a friend and had made no
attempt to Influence Lesslor's vote by
an offer of money or by intimidation,
Quigg took th stand in this after
noon's session. He denied that he
had ever made an offer of money to
Lessler In return for his vote. He
said he had merely discussed the ap
propriation and Lessler's opposition
to it. He testified that Lessler told
him no bribe had been offered.

A HEAVY BUSINESS
Concerns Manufacturing Rail
road Equipment Have Many
THE CURRENT YEAR WILL
ESTABLISH A NEW RECORD,
Demand for Railroad Equipment Con
tinues Heavy Manufacturers Be
lieve the Current Year Will Estab
llth New Record.
New York, Jan. 24. The demand
for railroad equipment continues
heavy, and manufacturers believe the
volume of business the current year
will establish a new record. The
American Car & Foundry Company,
tho Pressed Steel Car Company, the
Standard Car Company, the American
Locomotive Works, the Baldwin Lo
comotive Works and the steel rail
mills have more unfilled orders on
their books than ever before In his
tory. As a result of the extraordi
nary demand nearly every concern
engaged In the manufacture ot ma
terial that enters into railroad con
struction will add to its capacity this
year. The United States Steel Cor
poration will greatly enlarge the ca
pacity of its steel plant and rail
manufacturing mills. The Pressed
Steel Car Company and the Ameri
can Car & Foundry Company will al
so increase their output.
The Increase in the oulnut of steel
rails last year was equivalent to
about 20 per cent., and It is expect
ed the increase this year will ho
Equally as large1. Tho Standard. Steel
Car Company announces that the
Lackawanna and the Illinois Central
htivo ordered 1000 box cars. The
American Locomotive Company an
nounces an order for 25 locomotives
from, the Chesepeake & Ohio, and 20
from the Boston & Maine. The Rock
Island's Order for 225 locomotives
was placed some time ago. Other or
ders recently received by the big rail
load equipment concerns are from the
Tacoma & Eastern, the Wabash, the
Delaware & Hudson, the Kansas City,
Mexico Sc. Orient, an dthe Pennsyl
vanla company. The heavy business
of the concerns manufacturing rail
road equipment Is reflected In the
earnings of the American Car &
Foundry Company, which exceeded
$10,000,000 during the last fiscal year.

Salem, Jan. 24. Senator William
eon has introduced a bill in the sen-
ato to make the Lockwood primary
election law applicable to all cities
of 2500 inhabitants, instead ot towns
of 10,000 inhabitants, as at present.
The law now applies only to Portland
but If amended it will apply to Salem,
Astoria, Pendleton, Eugene, Albany,
The Dalles and Baker City.
The Williamson bill also proposes
to repeal the present primary law re
lating to cities of 2500 inhabitants,
which law was not practicable and
has never been used.
SEATTLE'S SOCIAL LIFE.
Lady of Fashion Now Rubs Elbows
With Residents of Tenderloin.
Seattle, AVash., Jan. 24.-rCitizens
wonder if after all a wide-open" policy
of city administration isn't tbe best
for Seattle. A short time ago, when
rumors of calling a grand Jury be
came rampant, Chief of Police Sulli
van issued orders that by this time
have effectively closed the Tender
loin. All first-class bawdy-houses
have been put out of the business.
No longer is tie click of the roulette
wheel and the rattle of dice heard
on Washington street. Seattle, figur
atively speaking, Is a "dead" town.
If Chief Sullivan thought for one
moment that by closing the bawdyr
houses he could drive the inmates
from tho city he was mistaken. These
women of ill fame permeated every
part of the residence districts of the
city, Now the lady of fashion rubs
elbows with the harlot on the cars
that convey them to their Queen Anne
homes. Those living on Capitol Hill,
.perhaps the most exclusive set In Se
attle, are compelled dally to pass wo
men of the "red badge" right on their
own doorsteps, while out on Madison
street, where all the swejl boarding
houses are, may be found almost as
many harlots as women of purer mo

City Authorities Adopt a Rigid
Policy and Will See That

IS FOR PUBLIC GOOD.
Much Carelessness by People Is Lead

Diseases in Parts of Town Provis
ions of the Ordinance.
From now on tho quarantine ordi
nance will be rigidly enforced a
policy that Is unquestionably fof tho
Tho policy ot strict enforcement of
tho ordinance seems to hnvo been
precipitated at this juncture by tha
carelessness and heedlessness of ac
quaintances of Olo Oleson and of
other people passing by the llttlo
building which hears the sign "Noodlo
Restaurant," and which Is the first
building weBt of the W. A C. R. offi
ces, on Webb street.
Mr. Olewn, who Is suffering with
an attack of scarlet fever, was re
moved from a Jodglng house In con
nection with the building mentioned,
sovernl days ago, nnd a nurse or at

that passersby and others Inspired by
curiosity and possessed of indiffer
ence, were in the halnt of opening
the door, which should be kept lock
ed, nnd cither , standing In the door
or going In, as their fancy .dictated.
This stato of affairs becoming known
has decided the city authorities to
rigidly enforce the quarantine ordi
nance, excerpts from which are print
ed below. That scarlet fever is a
puiely Infections and not a conta
gious disease Is proven by tho fact
that It really exists In but two locali
ties in tho city, nnd thoy aro widely
Tho prevalence in those two locali
ties Is attributed to tho carelessnesi
of the people whp aro quarantined,

and others going between the quar

not quarantined. The ordinance pro
viding for a quarantine and for tho
punishment of those violating It will
he rigidly enforced from now on.
