Foul Play, Perhaps
A body taken from the river
neartho Union Oil Company's
dock Saturday was identified by
Mrs. Anna Wiltner and others as
that of Jacob Weber, 40 years
old, night foreman for the Port
land Slabwood Company, at the
Portland Lumber Company's
dock, He had been missing
since the night of December 12.
Statements of some of his fellow
workmen, who identified the
body, indicate possibility of foul
piay , , ,
Weber was a German and had
no relatives in this part of the
country. Ho boarded at the
home of Mrs. Wiltner at. 5825
Forty-fifth avenue southeast
His fellow workmen, who con
firmed the identification of his
landlady, said that Weber had
had difficulty with some of the
laborers employed under him
several times, and that at one
time several of them had attack
ed and beaten him. It was a
few nights after this occurrence
that he disappeared.
In the pockets were $61 cash.
Mrs. Wiltner said he owned
some property in St. Johns and
that ha had about $2000 deposited
in one of the banks in this city.
Detectives Hyde and Vaughn
are investigating the case. An
inquest will be held today Ore

N. A. Gee started Monday
morning to remove the old ware
house at the woolen mills, to
make room for a large addition
to the plant that will be built at
once. The new addition will'bo
80x200 fee1; in size, two stories
high, and of brick construction,
we understand. It will mean
doubling the capacity of the
plant, which is cheering to the
people of St. Johns, as the wool

very beet and most steady indus
trial institutions in the city.

In boulevard development, ex
tensive pnving projects and new
factories the Peninsula district
promises to make substantial
progress this year. To begin
with, the Willamette boulevard,
from its southerly end at Patton
avenue to its northerly end at St.
Johns., is to be paved with a
hard surface improvmcnt, making
it one of the finest driveways
in Portland. The contract fori
the first section of this
ment was let some time ago.
Between the city limits and
St. Johns the boulevard runs
through a district which belongs
io uie county ouisiue uio juris
diction of Portland and St, Johns,
but the property owners have
signed up a petition asking that
that section be improved in the
same way, agreeing to pay for
uiu wuirv. Aiwa iiiuviuvo tui uii;
paving the boulevard along its
windings above the Willamette
River, with the West Side in
full view. Between Putton ave
nue and Lower Albinft, Maryland
avenue, which is part oi the
Willumctte boulevard, has been
opened on a slight grade down
the hill to Delay street. It con
nects with Goldsmith street,
which is to bo made 80 feet wide
to n connection with Larrabce
street and the Broadway bridge.
The development of this highway
will probably co3l between $250.
000 und $300,000 and is consider
ed one of the mosc important im
provement projects on the Pen
insula for the ensuing year.
With the development of this
highwny through Lower Albina
will come n nicker transportation
to the heart of Portland by way
of the Broadway bridge. The St.
Johns cars which aro now
routed by way of Killingsworth,
Williams and Holliday avenues,
will bo routed over this thorough-
faro. Tins route will reduco the
distance between St. Johns and
the business district of tho city
about threo miles.-Oregoninn.

Saturday night for the purpose
of selecting a committee to meet
with the Public Utilities commis

George Alunson, Arcme uaines,

It is expected that the Commis
sion will pay a visit to St. Johns
to investigate into the water
rate situation here, and the com
mittee, as we understand it. is
for the purpose of discussing the
question with the commission
then. Personalities were at

A Characteristic Reply
Mr. Bryan, in the Commoner,
has had a word to say about the
rumors that he was to be offered
a cabinet position. He takes for
his text a newspaper utterance:
"Woodrow Wilson's debt to Bry
an is the bi'ggcst jjebt possible
in American politics. Proper ac
knowledgment of that debt is ex
pected. Pop lar belief is that
it will be paid."
To this the Commoner nnswers :
improve-("Cabinet positions are not to be
regarded as currency with which
to pay debts. A public oflleial
has no right to discharge political
obligations at the expense of the
puwic. The men selected by Air.
Wilson for the cabinet should be
selected, not because of personal
service rendered to him, nor
even because of past services
rendered to the party. A great
responsibility rests upon him,
and he will need tho assistance
of tho best and bravest for his
work. He ought to feel freo to
select for each place tho man
best fitted for it; in no other
way can ho hope to measure up
to the expectations of the public.
Ho need not he should not, con
sider any service that Mr. Bryan
hus rendered to him, or to the
Ipublic. Mr. Bryan has been
abundantly rewarded lor any
thing he has done, and docs not
feel that the party or any indi
vidual in tho party, owes him
anything. If over ho holds any
ofllce, it ought to bo given,
whether by appointment or by
election, with the view to the
service that can bo rendered in
connection with tho work yet to
be done; not with tho idea of re
warding him for anything that
ho has done. And tho rule which
is hero laid down for Mr. Bryan
is tho rulo which he believes
should bo laid down for all."
Women for Jury Duty
Tho bill of Helen It. Robinson.
Stato Senator, to amend tho con
stitution to permit tho Legisla
ture to puss a bill admitting wo
men to jury duty precipitated a
heated quarrel jn tho Legislature
at Denver, Col. Senator Williams
attacked the bill on tho grounds
"I should unto to sco tho timo
come," said he, "when my wifo
or my daughter would bo chosen
for jury servico und bo locked
in a room with several men ju
rors overnight or for soveral
nights. I should hato to see tiio
timo como when my wifo or my
daughter wero forced to appear
in court and show cause why
they Bhould not servo on a jury.
There aro many criminal cases
in which it is a crime to ask a
woman to listen to tho evidence."
Senator John Hecker, of Denver,
replied in defense:
"Women have equal suffrage.
If they want to sit on juries I
can't see why they shouldn't.
When tho liquor question was
brought up in Donver it was
tho women who voted tho town
wet. Tho women of this town
drink more high balls and cock
tails than tho men do anyhow
and they smoke more cigarettes
a day than the men do. I can
not see why they shouldn't be
allowed to serve on juries if they
are anxious for it"

We May Get It Yet
Independence has offered the
promoters of the glass factory,
who were recently looking over
the Kenton and St Johns factory
districts with a view of locating
here, a bonus of $20,000 and a
free site of eight acres, accord
ing to word received here. It
looks as though the promoters
were making a very serious mis
take in locating so far from the
central market and labor market
as well. It means a double haul
for the railroads so doubtless
they are congratulating them-
selvles. Peninsula Herald.
In spite of the above gener
ous offer made by the people of
Independence last week, the pro
moters have not given up the
idea of locating in St Johns.
Several of the leading spirits in
the proposed glass factory visit
ed the Ogden farm again Tues
day and made a careful inspect
ion. Mr. Ogden has placed a
most reasonable price on his fifty
acres, and there is a strong prob
ability that St Johns will yet
secure the plant, which will be
a huge one.
Moves to Jersey Street
T. P. Ward, the pioneer ment
market man of bt Johns, has
recentlv removed his establish
ment from the Holbrook building
to the Old Star Meat Market
building at 205 South Jersey.
Mr. Ward is n landmark in St.
Johns. He came here when the
city was just casting aside its
swaddling clothes, and stayed
right with it through thick and
thin. In spite of the keenest
competition in the meat business
at different times, he has never
lost his nerve, but kept right
on doing business, giving tno
people only the best meat, when
lie could have made more money
by selling inferior meat. He hus
ever placed quality above any
thing else, and in consenuence
' has enjoyed n steady und faith
ful patronage. Unlike many of
I tho latter day meat vendors, he
would rather keep his meats in
tho bulk until called for than cut
und snrcad them out for display.
where dust and other particles
settle upon them. He has seen
about thirty-five meat merchants
come and go in St. Johns, and
he is tho only one of the many
who has mado a "stick" of it.
No man ever attended to busi
ness more strictly than Mr. Ward.
In fair weather and in foul ho is
ever to be found nt his post from
the early opening hours until
closing time at night. Ho is do
serving of unmeasured success,
and is receiving a fair share of
it. He will bo glad to meet all
his old patrons as well as new
ones in tho new quarters, Whore

Spray Your Fruit Trees
J. E. Stansbery, fruit inspect
or, and his deputy, Charles O.
Windle, viBited St Johns this
week. Mr. Stansbery, it will
be remembered, was here last
year, and notified a number of
parties to either cut down their
defective, fruit trees or havo
them sprayed. He now states
that most of those whom ho
thus notified have done neither,
and that ho is now serving no
tice upon them to cut tho trees
down. If this is not done, they
will be cut.down at tho fruit in
spector's command upon his re
turn in about one month. The
inspector is determined that no
infected trees shall remain un
cared for or allowed to exist long
in St Johns. So it is up to tho
owners to act accordingly.
