What does the opecial two
mill tax 'avy moan to the resi
dents ci St. Johns nnd the Pen
insula? This question has huen
propounded by many voters who
are interested in Portland in
general, but in the Peninsula
and St. Johns districts in par
ticular. City Commissioner Pier,
in charge of the department of
finance and paries, answers the
question in the following inter
view: "There are perhaps few dis
tricts in Portland so vitally con
cerned with tha succesa of the
special two mill tax levy as are
the people of St. Johns and the
Peninsula districts. While it is
true that the entire city is in
many ways equally as interested,
or affected by tho measure, it
must bo rcmoiTibcrcd that at the
present time St. Johns is faced
trith polico protection which is
inadequate. This is true of the
entire city, but tho separation of
the St. Johns district from the
city proper makes it even more
aurious in your diHtrict.
Tne inadequate police pro
toction, I find, is due to the
lack of men in tho department.
Mora mon cannot lie placed in
tho department unless the city
has additional rovonuo to pay
tho bill. There is no doubt but
should tho present two mill tax
levy bo defeated that the polico
department, already far too
small to covor tho city of Port
land, must oe reduced, and in a
reduction each portion of the
city will naturally sulfur.
"Another connection with tho
two mill measure and your dis
tricts come in the street lighting.
My observation in your ( sir ol
and reports which 1 have received
has convinced mo that many arc
lights aro necosuary in your din
trict. Hut unless tho two mill
measure is successful it will be
impussihlo to install additional
arc lights during tho coming
"Again tho failure of the vot
ers to approve tho mensuru will
result in tho postponement of it
large improvement program
which is to bo paid for by tho
property ownora benefited, but
which the city mint pay thocostn
of engineering and supervision.
This program will necessitalo
tho employment of Nevoral
thousand mon and can bo used t
handle any possible unemploy
ment problem which might arise
In tho city.
"And spoakingof employment
should bring to tho mind of
uvory voter that the defeat of the
two mill measure will result in
tho closing of tho federal em
ployment bureau in Portland.
This bureau has hcon operated
by tho government, but fin

"This employment servico is
far more essential now than it

of such service means that the
