rocks of Katalla harbor, Alaska,
will probably be a total loss. This
Is the opinion of the local officers
of the Alaska Coast Steamship
company today. A message was re
ceived here last night from Cap

steamer, saying that there is little
or no hope that the Portland can
be pulled off the rocks. The pas
sengers on board the portland were
landed at Katalla without accident
and will continue their journey to
Seattle on board the steamer Ala

Mixed politics is a good thing for
the country, according to Colonel
Samuel Moody of Pittsburg, traffic
manager of the Pennsylvania lines,
who arrived over the N. P. in his
private car yesterday. "Traveling

out here have told me that their or

"and I am of the opinion that the

SELLING AT COST.
You may think selling at cost is
no loss but there is. In the first
place we have lost the interest on
the money invested, secondly we
lose the time of our salesmen sell
ing them and then by selling on
small payments covering a period
of two years, it costs the time of our
office help to keep the accounts.
Rut that's not of consequence
now. We need the room occupied
by these odd players and we need
it badly for new Christmas goods

have made it worth your while to

HOW PRATT RING TRIED TO
iWHITWASH JOHN SULLIVAN
During the Sullivan trial, Satur
day afternoon, while the question of
the effort of the city administration
to shield Sullivan was under official
investigation, Attorney P. C. Rob
ertson referred to Mayor Pratt as
"that scoundrel." He alluded to
Pratt's statements that everything
was clean in Sullivan's police rule,
and the fact that Pratt had decried
and made harsh remarks about peo
ple who wore trying to ventilate
police conditions, and then showed
what really had existed under the
Sullivan-Pratt regime. It was In the
heat of the argument over this
phase of the case that Robertson
poured hot shot into the mayor and
used the epithet above mentioned.
The effort on the part of Mayor
Pratt to shield Sullivan was laid
bare Saturday afternoon, when

the board of police commissioners,
was placed on the stand and called
upon to tell why the police board
had entered a finding whitewashing
Sullivan in advance of the hearing
by the city council. Armstrong at
first appeared very independent and
asserted his right to disobey the or

ground that he was serving two
masters—the mayor and the coun
cil, and chose to obey the mayor In
preference to the council.
At this point Councilman Schiller
with vigor reminded Armstrong
and Attorney Tustin that the coun
cil was a superior body to the
mayor, anud that the city council
could remove the mayor if it
deemed it necessary.
Armstrong finally admitted that
the verdict whitewashing Sullivan
had been entered on the order of

SAN JOSE, Nov. 14.—Miss Ruth Frances Wilson, the beautiful
San Francisco high school girl in whose face Van Camp Redfern,
a disappointed admirer, is alleged to have thrown vitriol last
April, was secretly married in this city late Saturday afternoon
to Theodore M. Levy, a Stanford student, and the son of Martin
H. Levy of San Francisco.
The ceremony was performed by Police Jiwlge Thomas R.
Dougherty, and the witnesses to the marriage were Karl H. Levy,
a brother of the bridegroom, and J. B. Leaman Jr., a Stanford
student. The party drove to San Jose In an automobile and
secured a license from County Clerk Pfester.
Mrs. Levy is the daughter of J. A. Wilson, grand deputy of the
National Union of the district of California. Up to a few months
ago she was a student in the Lowell high school.
Her disappointed lover, Van Camp Redfern, for whom wide
police search was made, hid behind a fence near the girl's home
and squirted a stream of acid through a hole into the girl's face.
