FINAL PETITION IN
BE FILED FRIDAY
500 More Signatures Will Be
Checked Today; Total Of
2200 Names Now in Hands
Of Managerial Committee.
AIRS COURT CHARGES
W. W. Williams at Meeting at
Oswego Tells Incident In
J. Abrmahson Case Here.
SANDY, Oct. 18. (Special).
Petitions containing 500
names will be placed in the
hands of the county clerk for
checking Thursday, according
to the statement tonight of
Percy T. Shelly, manager of
the recall. This will give ato
tal of 2200 signatures. The pe
titions will be formally filed
Friday, Shelly stated.
Formal filing of the petitions to
place upon the ballot the recall of
county Judge H. E. Cross, is expected
by Friday. The definite date is not
fixed by law, as provisions are made
for the calling of a special election
for this purpose. The plan however,
is to call the special election on No
vember 7, so that it comes at the same
time as" the general election. Suffi
cient time for the posting of notices
is all that is necessary.
Under the requirements of the state
law which provides that the county
clerk shall check over the signatures
upon the petitions before they are fil
ed, to determine whether or not suf
ficient qualified electors have signed,
deputies in the clerk's office "Wednes
day began comparing the names on the
petitions with the list of registered
voters. Indications point to the throw
ing out of about ten per cent of the
names because the signers are not
registered. A total of 1750 of the 1984
required names have been secured and
circulators are still at work.
Circulators are Named
The circulators of the petitions now
in the clerk's hands are:
W. F. Harris, Fred L. Proctor, O. A.
Welsh, A- C- Thomas, Grover C. Pom
eroy, L. A. Rail, F. L. Turner. C. V.

A meeting of the recall proponents
In Oswego was held Tuesday night.
W. W. Williams of Portland, hand
writing expert, discussed the charge
which cites the county judge for his
conduct in the juvenile court. Wil
liams' charged that in the considera
tion of the case brought against James
Abrahamson, December 6 of last yea
the county judge had taken from the
prosecution evidence submitted dur
ing the trial and refused to return
it. Abraham was charged with a
threat to kill Roy Yoder of this city.
Wrll'ams Airs Charges
Williams also charged that the case
which was one of relative importance
in the investigation ct the death of
Simon Yoder, mysteriously murder
ed three years ago, was decided by the
judge on the basis of personal sym
pathy and without consideration of
the evidence presented. Williams tes
tified as an expert, concerning the
handwriting in the death threat note,
and it was up'jn his identification as
similar examples of the boy's hand
writing, thai a conviction was hoped
for by the special prosecutt..
A statement answering charges
made by County Judge Cross, and
denying statements in the Banner
Courier, a weekly publcation printed
every Thursday in Oregon City, Percy
T. Shelley, manager of the recall cam
paign, yesterday issued a formal state
ment. It says:
"In the last issue of the Banner- :
Courier I read with interest an edi-1
tonal entitled "Chestnuts for the Pub
lic." from which I quote: 'The Banner.
Courier has urged expression through
its columns by the sponsors of the re
call of the County judge but has no
response from them.' In answering
that let me say that there is a re
sponse in the county clerk's hands in
the form of 1700 signatures of Clacka
mas county taxpayers. If this is a
dagger sheathed, in a fsw more sun's
the sheath, will be off. Though the
Banner-Courier still objects to the
soft pedal, we will try and pull anoth
er stop. If to be sick and tired and
disgusted with autocratic and discour-
teous treatment from your employee
whom you have hired for a business ;
that requires all courtesy, kindness
and good will towards the people who
pay the bill, to walk the public streets
of our county seat openly with pe
titions to remedy such conditions, to
climb the hills of the suburbs of our
town, to travel the county roads and
highways in, and without machines,
can be called a pussy-footed attempt,
then I suppose we shall have to plead
guilty, to the charge.
"Does the person who wrote this ed
itorial believe that the tax payees l
order to recall a public official should
first go into public print and prove
their charges before they circulate pe
titions? It strikes me that their ob
iect in working to' get this-thing before
the public November 7th, is to save
the tax payers several thousand dol-

tion. They say those Tesponsible for
the whole proceedure should be rebuk
ed by refusal of the voters to sign the
petitions? Does the Banner-Courier
believe that all the hundreds of peo-
pie, who signed these petitions were
persuaded by -undue influence and a
"Now then, it seems our county jud
ge is worrying about the street talk
concerning a certain foot bridge built
across the Willamette river and in
order to stop the sponsors of the re
call from plucking the so called chest
nuts be has this to say:
" 'In answer to some loose remark
about the cost of the structure the
j record will show that the cost of the
I bridge was $18,000.00, of which amount
West Linn paid $5000.00, Oregon City
$4500.00 the mills of Oregon City
$4500.00, Clackamas county $4000.00.
This was a rush job' etc. Now I want
to respectfully ask Judge Cross if
West Linn and Oregon City actually
paid $5000.00 and $4500.00.
On the Banner-Courier page- under
the stars and stripes and by the .side
of the heading 'Bible thought for to
day' is this dear old verse, he one
we learned at mothers knee, 'Commit
thy way into the Lord. ' Trust also in
Him, and He shall bring it to pass.
Rest in the Lord and wait patiently
for Him. Psalm 37-5, 7.
Nothing I say here is meant slight
ingly or as a slur.against the Banner
Courier eitorial page, but I have an
other Bible quotation I would like to
suggest for a heading in their next is
sue Oct. 19th; part, of the 21st. verse
ISth chapter of 1 Kings, and reads
something like this, 'How long halt
ye between two opinions. If the Lord
be God, follow him but if Baal, then
follow him.' If a thing is right, it. is
right, and if its wrong, its wrong, and
this applies to men in public life, as
well as private."

AROUND THE WORLD
The popularity of motor busses is
increasing to such an extent, says the
Automotive Division of the Depart
ment of Commerce, that the market
which is derived from the demand for
such vehicles promises to become a
vitally important outlet for automo
tive products. The world-wide growth
of public automotive transportation is
reflected in an increasing flow of re
ports to the Commerce Department
from countries with a highly develop
ed transportation system as well as
from relatively unpopulated and un
developed areas such as .the Near
East. In the course of one week re
ports on motor bus operations from
London (Ont.) , Geneva, Damascus,
Aden, and Melbourne have reached
the Automotive- Division.
Motor Bosses Cut Costs
Bus passenger transportation in the
Damascus region (Syria) has increas
ed very much in importance durfng
the past six months. The Beirut-Damascus
railroad, was up to a short
time ago charging three Syrian
pounds ($5.00) for a third-class rail
way ticket to Beirut (86 miles by rail)
and as the same trip could be made in
about half the time in , an auto bus
for two Syrian pounds" ($3.30), the
business of the railway company fell
off alarmingly and did not improve
when the price of a third-class ticket
was decreased to pounds Syrian 2.10
($3.45). - j
As a result the railway company in
augurated! a- mtftor bus service of
its own, the price of a ticket on which
is Syrian 1.25 ($2.05).
Tram Cars Hit
Consul Taggart, London, Ontario,
(Canada) reports that the fares charg
ed by the street railways there until
the Spring of 1922, were regarded the
lowest in Canada and in the United
States. Last Spring the fares were
raised but this increase did 'not re
sult in any profit to the street railway

of motor busses which began at about

for the adoDtion of auto busses. A
company has been formed for the pur

concession for which, it is anticipat

those in use in Paris, only somewhat
smaller, with a total capacity, includ
ing that of the rear platform, of thirty-five
passengers. The busses, which
will be quipped with pneumative tires,
will be furnished by the Saucer Com
pany of Arbon.
The introduction of bus lines Is
apparently not so much in response
to a need for more extensive trans-
portation facilities, but rather a ven-;
ture in underselling the' tram lines,
15 of which constitute the present
system, embracing a length of 119
kilometers. The rates announced by
the bus company are appreciably low-

IN AMERICA TODAY
Herwig, Superintendent Of
Anti-Saloon League Talks
To 400 at Congregational
Church; Booze Is Flayed.
EDUCATION IS HELD
BIG NEED OF STATE
Clackamas County Condition
Is Lauded; Foreign Element
Declared Worst Offenders.
Declaring the question of prohibi
tion to be one of education rather
than mere legislation W. J. Herwig,
of Portland, superintendent of the
Oregon Anti-Saloon league, addressed
a gathering of 400 at the Congrega
tional church Sunday evening.
"In the questions confronted us as
a nation there is none more promin
ent nor more vital than the question
of prohibition," he declared. "The
eyes of the world are upon America,
anxious to know whether prohibition
is a success or a failure. If it is a
success in the United States it will
be a success in the whole world. If
it fails nationally, then it will fail
in the entire world."
L'quor Business To End.
Herwig pointed out that people had
believed that national prohibition
woold end the liquor business and
consequently the temperance people
believed that when such legislation
had been obtained to put the saloon
out of business, their labors were
over. But prohibition he declared, is
a matter of education, the passage of
the national amendment being only
Ati. ,1. - -
the start, tie snoweu mai me noms
generation would have to be taught
the value of it
"We are passing," he declared,"
through the greatest crisis in our his
tory. If prohibition fails, since pro
hibition is a law, then the loss of the
land will be subject to "ridicule and
contempt. The next 24 months will
be the most crucial. These months
will make or break the question of
Herwig stated that the immediate
need in Oregon in particular and in
the nation generally was the awaken
ing of the citizenship to the need of
enforcement of the laws upon the
statute books. The nation he said, is
passing through a great reactinary
period and those opposed to prohibi
tion are taking advantage of this re
action. The amount of moonshining
was scored as one of the reactions.
Law Should Be Enforced.
"Every community can have what
it wants," said the speaker. If il
wants horse stealing it can have it. If
it wants law enforcement it can have
it. Public sentiment should compel
officials to enforce the law. The time
has come to the sacredness of the
oath of office realized." Herwig then
paid a -tribute to the officials of Clack
amas county for their efforts in up
holding prohibition statutes.
The speaker declared that ninety
five per cent of the prohibition vio
lators were from the foreign element,
and residents who are not American
citizens, using this fact to stress the
need for added education.
From a legislative standpoint he
characterized the condition in Oregon
as promising, saying that no seats in
the legslature had been lost to the
wets at the primary election, and
that the situation was even more
hopeful for November.
An international convention is to
be said in Toronto, Herwig stated", to
consider the question of prohibition
from an nternational standpoint. All
of the states will be represented, with
delegates from the anti-saloon leag
ues. Program Complete

Auto Industry Now
Business In World
Analysis of information secured
through Governmental sources dis
closes that the automobile industry
is the largest manufacturing enter
prise in the world.
Thirty years ago, Bryce in his clas
sic treatise on the American Com
monwealth referred to " America's
great railway system as the means
of communication that held this coun
try together and rendered it one for
all social, political and commercial
"During the pasj, decade" says the
October issue of the Automobile
Trade Journal, "another great ad
vance in inter-communication has
been made. The automobile marks
the most successful attempt to pro
vide individual transportation' since
the first cave-man harnessed the
progenitor of the modern horse and
thereby supplied himself with
a means of travel afield."
The tremendous growth of the au
tomobile industry in recent years is
due solely to the fact that it has sup
plied a public need.
Far Greater Than Steel and Iron
The value of the 1922 automotive
output will be approximately as fol
lows: Automobiles $1,350,000,000
Replacement Parts 550,000,000
Total , $2,725,000,000
This total is 33 per cent greater
than the value of the output in the
second largest industry, the refininf
of petroleum (65 per cent of which is
used by automobiles), 65 per cent
greater than the value of the iron and
steel output, and more than twice the
value of all cotton goods produced in
the textile mills of the country.
Affects Many Basic Industries
The automobile business is the
most essential of our manufacturing
industries, because it directly affects
a greater number of what might be
termed "basic" industries,' than does
any other manufacturing enterprise.
Annual imports of crude rubber in
to the United States are now 600,000,
000 pounds per annum. Of this total,
SI per cent, or 490,000,000 pounds, will
be required this year for automobile
Production of plate glass this year
should total about 68,000,000 square
feet. Nearly one-third of this, or 21,
500,000 square feet, will be required
This year 5,400,000,000 gallons of
L gasoline will be produced. About 4,-
320,000.000 gallons, or 80 per cent of
this total, will be used in automo
biles. While over 850,000,000 gallons of
lubricating oil will be refined. in 1922,
only 575,000,000 gallons will be re
quired for domestic consumption.
About 230,000,000 gallons, or 'over 40
per cent, of the domestic consumption
will be needed for the operation of
automobiles. '" -
About 75,000" bales of Egyptian
type, long staple cotton will be grown
in the United States this year while
400,000 bales will be imported from
Egypt. About 38 per cent of this to
tal, or 180,000 bales, will be used in
the manufacture of automobile tires.
Any weakness in the market for au
tomotive produces will be immediately
reflected in the business of all of
those industries which depend wholly
or in part on the automobile business
for a market.
With its -various subsidiary lines,
the automobile business influences
the industrial labor market to a more
pronounced extent than does any oth
er great industry.
There are 727,000 wage earners, in
production, sales and service work,
whose income is derived directly from
In addition to these there are 935,
000 other wage earners, who derive
their income indirectly from the au
tomobile business. These are drivers
and chauffeurs and workers in indus
tries supplying raw materials to man
ufacturers of automotive products.
Figures for workers in these indus
tries were obtained by multiplying to
tal workers in each of these industries
by the percentage of the total output
needed for automotive products.
Directly and indirectly the automo
bile industry influences the employ
ment of 1,662,000 wage earners.
There are approximately 12,750,000
wage earners supported from monu
facturinjg industries or engaged in
transportation. Of these, 13 per cent
are dependent upon the automobile
The automobile Is. today, the lead
ing passenger transportation agency1
in the United States.
There are today, 55,250 railroad
passenger coaches In use, having a
seating capacity of 2,270,000 passen
gers. The seating capacity of 9,500,
000 automobiles now in use ie 47,
000.000. Based on records for the past five
years, there should be 47,000,000,000
pasenger miles to the credit of rail
facilities in 1922. The average num
ber of passengers per automobile is
two, and the average annual mileage
Is six thousand. Hence the utomobile
must be credited with 114.000,000,000
pasenger miles this year.
The automobile business Is the
most stable of the great industrial
enterprises, because it has been the
first to return to normal. The num-
Qf automobJle8 and truckg that
will be manufactured this year will
be slightly in excess of 2,000,000.

ART IN DAILY LIFE
What we are we become gradually,
made so by the company we keep, ihe
thoughts we think, the things we do,
and the environment in which -we live.
If we hear "You was" and "I seen"
for the first ten years of our lives,
these linguistic blemishes are almost
certain to crop out at tense moments
all the rest of our lives. What we
smell, taste, feel, see, we become.
Hence th . importance of maintaining
refined surroundings for our children.
More than we realize, the whole
family is affected by the wall-paper,
the rugs, the pictures, the clothes,
the bill-boards, the school house,
and the down town with which we
associate. " '
Few of us can adjust our environ
ments fully to the ideals of art which
we know are correct. But, with cor
rect ideals in mind, we can do some
thing to improve our surroundings. At
least, -we can cut out the most glar
ing bad features and keep from taking
on new ones.
That means discarding a good many
things to which our hearts are tied '.
by cords of sentiment, hereditary
trifles, keep-sakes, and articles we
just "happen to have and which it
seems wasteful to throw away.
Use William Morris' rule: "Have
nothing in your home which you do
not know to be useful or believe tc be
Obeying this, great would be our
contribution to the junk man or the
White Elephant Sale.
Few and simple things express no
bility and dignity of sentiment. Back
grounds should always be simple. If
our souls would grow great, the back
ground of our lives must be simple
not cluttered up with things.
To be artistic a thing must be good
to use for the. purpose it is intended.
Artistic furniture and dress is appro
priate. It is not appropriate to have
a miniature canoe hung under the gas
jet for a match safe, or a rocking
chair the shape of a fish, or life-sized
grapes !decorate a lady's skirf or an
enormous cat pictured on the rug. No
body want to sit on a bunch of
grapes nor walk on a cat on the floor.
The same style of dress is not ap
propriate for school and business
which is appropriate for negligee
wear in the home, although we do
often see this fluffy frumpery on the
high school miss or the stenographer.
. We make a mistake in adding orna
ment where long plain lines would be
far more beautiful, making ourselves
into a Christmas tree, instead of a
beautiful tree as nature made it.
Balance is an element of decora
tion. A thing must not look top
heavy nor" lop sided. If there is dec
oration on one side, put something
on the other side to balance it.
Art must not hamper activity or
use. It must grow from need and not
interfere with life.
Art should follow the lines of a
structure and seem o strengthen it.
Clothes lines and building lines fol
low gravity and fall down, not go
across nor zig-zag.
Decoration should be consistent
throughout, harmonious. Oak and
mahogany do not combine well; silk
does not call for calico trimmings, nor
does a steel engraving balance a wa
WHY THE TREND TOWN WARD? I
We are interested to note the vari
ous causes arrived at by investiga
tions as to WHY the trend is away
from the farm and to the town.
L One set of survey-ers decide that it
is due to lack of modern conveniences
in the country. Though these are
just as inexpensive in the country as
in town, yet there are but few rural
homes equipped with heating system,
lie-htine- svstem. water system, and
septic tanks. However the number
of such is increasing. Steam press
ure cookers for canning and cooking,
iceless refrigerators, or the ice kind
with ice houses to supply them, sepa
rators, proper churns, power wash
ing machines, irons, and vacuum
cleaners are all contributing to the
comfort and satisfaction of country
life, but they come slowly, in compari
son to their progress in the towns
It is largely due to the mental atti
tude of rountrv dwellers for they
could afford as well to have them as
We need jollity in the country as
in the old days of the barn dance,
sioiorhino- nartipa snelline bee and
n i i
singing school. There is too little
fommunity fun in the country. The
automobile makes ruralites reach to
ward the near-by town, and feel
too little settled common interest with
their neighbors. The country church
is not yet big enough nor sociable
and happy enough "fo satisfy and so
plays no part in the life of a large
percen t of the rural population.
School, church and play centers are
the remedy for this problem.
It is significant that it is not only
the young people who are drawn away
from . the farm by the dearth of
these things which make life pleas-
anter. but the middle aged and such
farmers as are financially able to "r-

from the country home and be cooned
up on a city lot, but to be within
reach of club-life, the sociable church,
the movies, and to have modern con
ver.iencei. Are there other causes? If there
are, let's discuss them. The first
step in cure is diagnosis.
