Since New Year's eve, when
the United Railways company
operated a locomotive over iti
Front street une ior the first
time, the importance of that
railway system to the commer
cial interests of Portland has
been demonstrated. Besides de
livering direct to the business
district on Front street and in
South Portland all incoming
frieght from the North Pacific
Terminal Company and the dif
ferent roads entering the termi
nal grounds, this road, by its
connection with the Oregon Elec
tric Railway, brings the business
men of Portland into direct com-
municatitn with Willamette val
ley points that are served by the
Portland-Salem line and at the
same time furnishes that system
with an entrance to the terminal
grounds and an outlet for all
shipments over the various trans-
continental roads entering Port-

said Lloyd B. Wickersham, chief
engineer for the road. "We ex

terurban line outside of the city
as soon as the weather settles,
and when we can adjust a few
matters involving the question of
right of way.
"As to the interurban line, we
are intending to construct a first-
class, high-speed road and we
are striving for a maximum 2 per
cent grade. Twd satisfactory
routes are under consideration
between Hillsboro and Portland
and the one will b selected over
which the probleni of rights-of-
way can be best aljusted.
"In the construction of this
road we are planning to build a
branch from the main line to
Mount Calvary cemetery. Con
struction work will be pushed
through this winter and in the
spring and as soon as the grading
is finished, more men will be add

Engineer Geo. L Davis, of the

this month, and it is currently
reiorted that work will start up
again sometime in April. This,
should it turn out correct, will
be good news to the people of

anxious to see operations renew

Tillamook county is the old
stamping ground of Hembreo, the
fiend who killed his wife and
daughter in cold blood and fired
the home in hopes of destroying
the evidence of his crime. The
charred bones of the ioor wife
were found in the ashes after the
fire, and the cut and mangled re
mains of his daughter, with
whom he had been criminally in
timate, were taken from an old
cook stove by the Tillamook of
ficials after a prolonged search.
The Headlight, published at Till
amook, says the people are not
pleased with Gov. Chamberlain
for pardoning the wretch after
he had been landed in the peni
tentiary for committing one of
the most horrble crimes ever
committeed in Oregon, and after
stating that the people over
there are in a very ugly mood be
cause of the action of the gov
ernor, publishes the following let
ter, written by E. M. Shutt, sher
iff of Morrow county, to the
Portland Oregonian, in w hich he
pays his respects to Gov. Cham
berlain and his pardoning power:
"I have been impressed lately
with the Oregonian's editorial
criticisms of the courts of our
land, and of the causes and con
ditions which are producing crime
at such an alarming rate. The
editorial in last Saturday's Ore
gonian, under the caption of
'More Slaughter.!. i a com. arul
should be and ia. u ?red over
by ever citizen of the country.
Let us have more ofthat kind.
They are sure to bear good fruit.
If every daily and weekly news
paper in Oregon would come out
courageously and demand better
law enforcement and better con
ditions of atrairs socially and mor
ally, it would not be long until
crime would diminish, and the
residents of the great common
wealth could once more be able
to enjoy life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness.
What the governor, the legis
lators, the supreme and circuit
judges, the district attorneys, the
grand juries, the trial juries, the
the sherills and the municipal au
thorities fear most of all is pub
licity and criticism in the public
press of their acts. It the news
papers would come out and se

or crime that is sweeping so
recklessly over our fair land we
shall as a nation soon take our
projtor place alongside of Russia
Just now there is more urgent
need of reform at the top than at
the bottom of our social life. It
is extremely discouraging to those
newspapers, those ollicials and
those individuals who have been
preaching and practicing law and
order, and trying to imiel a
oxonfr rrwipr nri'l riivoronpp fop
law, to be jarred clear oir the
roost only too frequently by the
outrageous decisions of the gov
ernor and the courts of justice.
Take, for example, the recent
pardon by the governor of Ore
gon of Hembreo, the man con
victed of the murder of his wife
and daughter, under the most
disgusting and revolting circum
stances, after the inhuman fiend
had served but one year out of a
lifetime sentence. Take for an
other example the actions of the
Oregon supreme court, in repriev
ing Blodgett, confessed murderer
of his female companion, on the
ground that the district attorney
had referred briefly to other red
handed murders in his argument
to the jury. Many other cases of
equal seriousness could be cited.
1 he eirects of ten years' preach
ing on law observance by the
press and by individuals can be
crushed by one ollicial act such
as those just mentioned. When
this kind of outrageous leniency
and maudlin sentiment is show n
the cold-blooded and savage mur
derers of our country by those
who stand at the very head of
our legal system, and to whom
we look for inspiration of law
and justice, what can we reason
ably expect from the common
herd of humanity an astonish
ing proportion of whom arc nat

of leniency and the triumph of
hair-splitting technicalities over
common justice has a strong ten
dency to Russianize this country.
