Horn hi Illinois on October

Willamette University. Ho came
(o Porlland in 1800, first en
gaging in Hie machinery busi
ness, and later entering Hie
service of the county.
His military career began
twenty-six years nun when he

In Iho Spanish-American war lie
served as second lieutenant of
the hallery. lie was chosen cap

alter serving in tiiat capacity
lor sixteen years lie resigned.
Following his resignation lie
was appointed minor in the iu-
siicclor-gcnerars department of

Wllhvcomhe. and ns such wns
called into service during (he
Mexican (rouble in 101(1.

will ho called upon lo hear their
'air share of the lax burden,
whereas al present they do nol
pay one eenl for such benefits.
It was shown in the hearings
holorc the C.ilv Council that
some of Hie big business iutor-
esls ahsoluloly depended upon
street car service lor their pros
perils- and that I hey could not
exist (10 days without such serv
ice, ami yet Ihey did not con
tribute one cent toward main
laiiiiug this service.
From this fact, too, therefore,
il seems thai the only Hung that
llie small lax-payer and proper-

conserve his own interests is lo
vole anil work for Iho adoption
of all Ihreo of (hose measures.
It is only in this way that the

be relieved of excessive burdens
