ST. JOHNS, PORTLAND, OREGON, FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 1920.
' Plans and specification swere
authorized by the Public dock
commission for large amount of
construction at munic na term
inal No. 4, which will, bo neces-
ary at an early date to accom
mouate tno rapidly increasing
8iii)i)ini? ot the port. This nro
posed new construction includes
a shed over the outer one-half of
pier No. 2, which is nearine
completion. As this pier is 1500
loot long the shed will bo approx
imately 760 feet long and 180
feet wide. In addition it is
proposed to build the substruc
ture of pier No. 3. which will bo
1500 feet, in length and also the
substructure of that portion of
pier No. 5, which faces on slip
No. 3. The- estimates for this
work havo not as yet been com
piled but it will be in excess of
$500,000. Chief Engineer He
gardt advised tho commission
that no time should bo lost in
providing theso additional port
facilities. Tho official adver
tisements for this work will np

S. Dul in established a record
for the new plant on Thursday.
Botwoon the hours of 9 u. m.
and 3 p. m. a total of 1270 square
yards of asphaltic concruto were
turned out, transported to St.
Johns and laid down as a part of
the Jcfsoy Htroot improvement.
"This shows beyond a doubt that
in tho ordinary working day of
eight hours, tho plant can turn
out at leaBt 2000 square yards,"
said Commissioner A. L. Barbur
of tho public works department.
Every square yard turned out
returns a cash profit to tho gon

that a now high school is an ur

with some acerbity and recom

Capital punishment docs not
deter murder. In 'the last five
years of hangings in Oregon
there were 59 homicides. In
the first five years without hang
ings in Oregon, thero were only
30 homicides. This should settle
definitely the question. Fifty
nine murders when hangings
were in voguo and only 3G when
tnnro were no hnngings is proof.
full and final, that hangings do
not lessen tho numterof mur
ders. And thero are other
equally definite proofs. Now
York, nndorcapital punishment,
had in 10 years, 4.8 and Montana
12.2 per murders nor 100.000
population. Michigan and Maine,
without canital minishmont. had
during tho same period, but 2.2
and 1.8 murders per 100.000 of
population. In the presence of
such facts, men may argue un
til they nro black in the face in
favor of capital punishment.
But they only flounder in fallacy.
Their efforts nro futile. Tho
proposal to restore tho death
penalty in Oregon is not founded
on roason or on fact. Nothing
has ocurrcd to warrant it. Fifty-
nine murders in fivo years just
before and but 3G in fivo years
just aftor hangings wero abol
ished, show how utterly foolish
restoration of killings by the
state would be. Wo ought to
