teen-day harness and running racing
meeting to commence at Overland

Dr. Irion has had several confer-
ences with the chief officials of va-
rious railroad companies in this atato
and they heartily approved of his
plan and promised their cordial help
and support .
Another most important feature of
the conference will be the mapping
out of a uniform plan of action which
will afford the greatest protection to
the public haalth with the least in-
terference with the business interests
of the state. Many of the most
prominent merchants, hankers, plant-
ers and public officials in various
parts of the state have already prom-
ised to support in every way possi-
ble the campaign which the con-
ference should agree on and the
presence of a large number of mer-
chants, manufacturers, planters and
officials from all parts of the state
gives proof of the seriousness of their
premises. Among the medical mem-
bers of the conference are many of
the best known and most prominent
physicians of the state and many of
them have come prepared to giva to
the conference the benefit of their
experiences during the- epidemic of
last year. The conference will be
in session two days.

Burdick of Port Angeles spent last

the animals as t!ie 7 crossed a small
stream a few hundred yards from
him. There were but two bulla in
the entire lierd. The animals were
extremely tame and Burdick gives It
as his opinion that it would take but
a short time to domesticate them, as
they parmLed him to walk around

Health conference, which was called
by Dr. C. H. Irion, president of the

ters of public health with particular

Admiral Rojtstvensky Discusses ths
Russian Naval Defeat.
St. Petersburg, Feb. 14.—“Perhaps
I am guilty to some extent for our
defeat, and perhaps my subordinates
did not do all they might have done,
but at all events all who fought the
battle were not thieves." So said Ad-
miral Rojestvensky, who addressed
the Imperial Technical society yester-
day evening upon the causes of the
defeat <5f the Russians in the battle
of the sea of Japan.
The admiral made no specifications
regarding rascality in construction
and equipment of ships, but he com-
mented at length upon the destructive
effect of the heavy Japanese shells,
which when they exploded in the wa-
ter near the Russian vessels cracked
their plates and opened great leaks,
while those which struck the Russian
ships squarely were as destructive as
Chicago, Feb. 14,—The city council
at a special meeting today took action
on three important propositions af-
fecting the city. An ordinance plac-
ing the saloon license at $000 Instead
of $500, the present figure, was adopt-
ed by a vote of 25 to 32, but Mayor
Dunne ruled that the measure had
failed of passage because it did not
receive 36 votes, the constitutional
majority. The $1,000 ordinance was
then reintroduced, but it was referrel
to the license committee to lie pre-
sented again at the next meeting of
the council on February 26.
It was also ordered that the ques-
tion of voting $75,000,000 for the pur-
chase of the street railways for the’
city be submitted to the voters of the
city at ihe next election.
The Importance of the pending
mtasures and (he excitement which
has attended their agitation drew an
enormous crowd io the city hall late
in the day.
Reason* for Vetoing,the
Gat Ordinance Are Given.
The mayor based his veto or the
gas ordinance on the declaration thaf
he considered 85 cents too high a price
and 75 cents a proper figure. He also
asked that the gaB companies be com-
pelled to furnish free of cost to the
city such gas as it needs for street
lighting purposes. The mayor also
asked that time be taken by the coun-
cil to investigate the operation of the
gas companies to determine whether
they cannot furnish gas at 75 cents
and still make a reasonable profit.
The question of saloon licenses was
productive of the greatest amount, ol
feeling. The numerous crimes which
have been perpetrated against women
in this city of lafe hare aroused much
feeling and it was believed bv many
people that the raising of saloon li-
censes from $500 to $1,000 would wipe
out many small saloons in the (fisrep-
ualable sections of the city which are
breeding places for crimes. The sa-
loon men have been arrayed solidly
against the raise and the fight has
The council committee presented a
majority report favoring a license fee
of $1,000 and a minority report plac-
ing it at $600. The latter was addpted
by a vote of 35 to 32. The resulf was
greeted with great cheering by those
who favored the smaller license fee,
and the police had much difficulty in

The exception was on an amendment
