In a speech here last evening In which the editor read more letters of Archbold to Foraker, Mr. Hearst paid his respects to President Roosevelt and Mr. Bryan and compared the ac tion or the president In repudiating Senator Foraker with that of Mr. Bry an, who, he said was willing to take tlie responsibility of Governor Has kell's connection with the democrat ic national committee.

What has always been considered the Impossible has practically hap pened. Pendleton's tenderloin dis trict has all but been wiped nut. The drastic order of Mayor Murphy. Is sued one week ago this morning, has had a better and more far-reaching effect than the mayor or any of tho councllmen dreamed that It would have when made. The order was to the effect that all women occupying the row of one story shacks on Cottonwood street be tween Alia and Webb streets, nnd those occupying the ground floors of the two-story buildings should he re quired to move out. Also that the lattice work In front of these build ings should bo torn out and that the rooms on the ground floors of the two-story buildings must be torn out so they could no longer be used for bawdy house purposes. While It was hoped that this order would have the effect of causing some of the denizens of this part of town to seek locations elsewhere It was supposed that tho most of them would find accommodations on the second floors of the two-story build ings Jn that neighborhood. Such does not seem to have been the ease, however, for large numbers of them have been seen to leave the city on recent trains and It was announced by Chief of Police Ourdane this afternoon that all but four of them had left town altogether. Since this Is a more satisfactory solution of tbe problem than even the most ardent leaders of the move ment against this class of people had hoped for and it Is now believed that the agitation will be dropped. The results of the mayor's orders are considered the more remarkable since It has always been argued that Jt would be Impossible to rid the city of this class of people, it being mere ly possible to scatter them. It Is generally ndmltted, however, that the voting of the county dry and the eliminating of the saloons with the enforcement of the prohibition law has had a great Influence In causing the general exodus.

Today the attorneys for the indict ed exsaloonmen took the first step in the legal fight they are to make by filifig demurrers to all the indict ments.
