"Mr. Scott, Mr. Simon nnd the First

in favor of economizing. They have
never fotind my voice", or"thoso of my
friends, or those .opposed to tho Simon
charter, against economy. They have
singled out the dlsttlul attorney's

city an Indebtedness of 83,2o0,000,
which was all wrong. Wo find that
these gentlemen who pose as econo
mists Messrs. Simon, Scott, Cotbctt,
Failing and others authorized the
Issunnco of water bonds to the extent
of $2,500,00(1; city hall, $500,000; Port of
Portland, $."00,000; btldges, $f00,000.
That Indebtedness jou must pay, It
Is a mortgage on your property, and
you must pay it, and ft per cent Inter
est on It. In 1891 they got another
water bill through I don't know how
or why authorizing tho Issuance of
$1,000,000 more. Simon gob It through
the legislature, Scott endorsed It, and
Corbett took in the money.
"When they built tho city hall,"
ho said, "they sent across tho Rocky
mountains and got all tho stone nnd
all the wood work; and they tent to
Omaha and got n contractor, and ho
brought his stonemasons and brick
masons with him, and let your brick
masons and stonemasons walk tho
streets. That was a part of tho
economical legislation of your Scott,
Simon and Corbett. Not only that,
you will have to pay on tho $00,000
they spent on a basement nnd then
toro up, and they wouldn't uso Ore
gon stone or material."
"In 1895, thoy tried to pass a char
ter. They declared they must pass
that charter. They wanted to econo
mize from tho salaries of policemen
and street workers, clerks nnd labor
ers, who spend their money with our
bakers and butchers nnd tradesmen
and keep It at homo."
"But they said this is a Frank cam
paign," he cried. "We are not apol
ogizing for Mr. Frank. Wherever ho
may be, he Is Just tho same ns you.
He may have made mistakes, and we
do not seek to vindicate him. We
gay Frank is not a candidate. He will
not and cannot bo a candidate at tho
Republican county convention for
anyodlce. I want to say that he Is
only one of the rank and file of Rc-
j publicans who will go to the primaries
and declare that they are not owned
by Tho Oregonian, tho First National

"We told them we would agicc to

Tho speaker then rjcclared tho live

were politicians and had been for
15 years, "Tho board of public works
took tin absolute fco In simple of every

Dubuque, la., March 12. Several

Husted, tho ferand Jury indicted the
mayor andjclght aldermen for Illegally
voting and taking un increase of sal

Indictments charged no crlmo under
the statutes. Neither of tho resident
judges would hear the cases, und
Judge Waterman, of Davenport, was
called, Court opened in a crowded
courtroom, nnd with a big array of
counsel. The Judge's ruling all
through plainly indicated the sustain
ing of the demurrer, and It will not
be surprising If the Judlotinqnts are
dismissed. The cases have attracted
wide attention.

an exhibition In boxing, which quite
often liccomej very exciting. The
members range from ten to sixteen
years of age, and somo are becoming
quite expert with tho gloves. In tho
loft a ring has been marked off, In
which tho contests lako place.
When tho dato for a friendlj?)

the youthful antagonists nro apprised
of tho fact; arriving nt tho scone of
tho conflict an admission fee of two
