MAY OUTCOME BUILD SEVER UP SOUTH END ROAD PLAN TO CUT LOWER HALF OF SEWER IN ROCK AND MAKE UPPER HALF CONCRETE. THREE-fOOT SEWER IS IMPERATIVE Such a Sewar Would Last for Several Generatlona and Be Practical ly Indestructible and Adtquats. The atreet and alley committee .of Council waa made to realize. In a re cent heavy rain storm when the watera came down the Fouth Knd road and ran across the atreet Into cellars on Main atreet and filled them to over flowing, that Something muat be done with the watera that come down thla hill when there are audden freshets. With thla difficulty to obviate Coun cilman Durke. Street Commlaaloner Dabcock and Contractor Harry Jones made a casual survey of this street nd hill Thursdsy. The question up to them waa aa to what to do to care for the water accumulating on this hill at tlmea, and where to carry It In an effort to gt It Into the Willam ette River. What seemed to these gentlemen to be the beat solution of the proposi tion waa to build concrete aewer at the aide of the road leading down the hill. The aewer should be constructed on the eaat side of the road, up against the hill proper, and It should be built Into the rock of which the hill la com posed. The plan aa outlined would embrace the digging of a deep trench, half the depth of the sewer, digging Into the rock of which that part of tba street la composed. Thla should form tho under half of the newer. Then on to the top of thla construct the aecond half of the aewer of concrete, so made that the concrete shall become a part of the aewer and so firmly attached that It cannot be dislodged. Down thla aewer the watera flowing down the hill should pass, and by connecting In with the present aewer on Fourth atreet the watera coming down the hill would In this way be carried Into the Willamette River. And In caae the sewer on Fourth .atreet Is not large enough to take care of thla ad ditional water, then a new aewer should be built to the river. . This ewer should te large enough to carry off all the water that can In any conceivable way be congregated Into the aewer. At first thought It was deemed wise to build a three foot sewer, but It Is possible a smaller sewer will do the work. The watera coming down this hill should be noted on different occasions and when once the amount la known It will be possi ble to make a correct estimate aa to the size of the sewer. A concrete sewer constructed on a rock base dug from the side of the hill will be a never-wearlng-out pro portion, for If properly built the older the sewer the harder the concrete, and the closer It atlcka to the rock bottom at first the harder It will stick with age. Any defects In the stone at cer tain points In the bottom can be filled In with concrete and made even more durable than the atone Itself. The -committee that viewed the atreet waa unanimous In Its opinion that to build for yeara waa the chnaper method when yeara of wear arn con sidered. And aa It la imperative that something be done a recommendation may be given to Council at an early date. - VALENTINE PARTY. Mra. E. ft. Follensbee Hostess at a Pleasant Function. Mrs V. S.

SALARY BOOSTING IS NOT POPULAR HERE WHILE THE OLD SALARIES ARE RIDICULOUSLY LOW, MANY OBJECT TO RAISING THEM. SALEM. Or., Feb. 16. The move ment on foot to rslse the salaries of certain county officials, which Is forced to run the gauntlet of retrench ment now oeratlve at Salem, la one with much merit In It. How the peo' plo can expect to aecure" competent men to do the work or the county and then not pay more than a man Can get In working under a sect Ion - boffi on new construction work on a rail way, la more than the average citizen can conceive. Many men, when the question of a raise In the salary of a public official la broached, at once aak, "Why did he hustle so for the Job If the salary did not ault him?" But that Is neither here nor there, tha question at lasue Is whether or no we will pay fair wagea for conscientious work or be satlafled with half paying offlclala and force them to aupport themselves in some other way, or eat up theaavlngs of a few yeara at aome other employ ment. The nubile cannot get good men for nothing any more than private Indi viduals can. The call waa sent out today for those Interested In the salary raise to come here and assist In lta passage! Many came btit-lt look a much aa if the measure waa to have a nara time In eettlng' liy those with a club in hand to destroy It. When the proi nosed salaries shall have been put in force they will not be nearly so large aa the same grade or position paya an over the Kaat. ARTISANS MAY ORGANIZE.

AMENDMENTS THREATEN PROVISIONS Report Will Ba Presented Today By Man Whose Position Is Doubtful and Short Time Is Left For Conaideratlon. 8ALEM, Or, Feb. 16. (Staff Cor respondence.) Opposition of the East ern Tjregondelrgatlon In the House this morning put fc crimp in the Dim Ick eight-hour bill, aimed at the Ore gon City paper companies, and after wrangling nearly three hours, the measure was referred, upon motion of McKlnney, of Baker County, to the Judiciary and revision of laws commit tees, with instructions to report back tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock.. ; "She bill came up at 10 o'clock this morning as a special order for that hour, and at the outset It faced the criticism of the members who foared the effect of the measure on Indus tries other than paper mills. . Millar, of Linn, chairman of the House com mittee on labor Industries, filed a minority against the bill, and Pierce and Clyde submitted a majority report. The minority report failed of adoption after an extended debate, In which there was a great deal of oratory of spread-eaxle character. In which nearly half of the House members par tic! pat ed Thompson objected to consideration of. the bill on the ground that since It had been read first and second times. It had gone back to the Senate on reconsideration. Jones, of Clack- a mas. Insisted that thla objection was purely technical and had the rules suspended to have the bill read. Right at thla point Ammo, of Multnomah, tried to have the bill referred to the Judiciary committee, but again Jones objected, and Speaker Rusk permitted the reports of the labor industries committee to be taken from the desk and submitted to the House. Carter, of Clackamas, made an earn est appeal for the passage of the bllL He went over practically the same ground aa covered by Dlmlck In the Senate. . . ' " . " "I worked In these mills eight months, said Carter, and "and It seems like a night-mare to me now. I have longed for an opportunity to do some thing to ameliorate conditions In the Oregon City paper mills. I hope none of you will be governed by person alities, but that you will look at the bill from a humanitarian standpoint" Carter read some figures that had been given him by Rev. William Proc tor of Oregon City, charging that the Willamette Pulp & Paper Co. made a clear profit of $3600 dally. He ap pealed ror the 'divine spark or human sympathy for the under dog.' Miller, of IJnn, who Tiled the minor ity report, said he had no doubt that conditions at Oregon City should be remedied, but stated the bill affected the prune driers of his section. Thomp son said If the measure applied to Oregon City alone, he would vote ror It. but it affected cyanide plants, lum ber mills, mines, fruit driers, flour mills and hop driers, and argued that the passage of the measure would be disastrous to the Industries of Eastern and Southern Oregon. He doubted if the paper mills would pay as much wages under changed conditions and believed tt would' not be right to crip ple the Industries or the whole state ror the paper mills. Fonts, or Multnomah, contended that Thompson's argument was not sound, and he become involved with Thompson In a controversy over con stitutional points or the measure. McKlnney charged that the bill ap plied to Industries or his county. "I care nothing about the Oregon City paper mills," Bald he, "and the Clackamas delegation can put them out or business lr they want to. At the hot torn or this whole matter is an effort to make good some political promisee, and In punishing the paper mills I do not want Eastern ureswu punished as well." McKlnney offered an amenameni excepting mines from the provisions of the bill. Clyde made his usual stunted speech and Brownhlll said the question was one of privilege versus human rluhts. and of dollars versus human happiness. He Insisted that the leelalature Is responsible ror con ditions under which men are working. Sneaker Rusk took the floor to make a short talk for the bill, and McKlnney got Into a wrangle with the speaker In talklno- a second time on the ques tion. The Bpeaker rappod him down, but he appealed and the House sus tained Rusk by the close vote or a o 21. .. . Ambrose argued againBt the bill, te- cause It affected Multnomah County Industries and Cottell said it is tne duty of the legislature to relieve con ditions. Magone, of Clackamas, also talked In favor of the measure. Mahonoy said the bill affected every little mill In the state and that It would be amended to aim directly at the al leged evils. "You cannot expect us," he declared, "to come down here and vote against our own Industries as a matter of sen timent." Huntington lived In a fruit growing district and could not support the bill. At this point the opponents or trie bill started to filibuster and In order to eave the measure from being cut to pieces, Jones seconded Fonts' mo tion to go Into- a committee of the whole to consider the bill. Thompson's motion to strike out Section 1 waa carried by a vote of 2? to 21. Other amendments came thick and faat and a motion to make the bill apply aiy In factories where the con ditions are Injurious and dangerous to human life was passed. Carter became disgusted and charged the members with acting like a lot or school boys and the Clackamas rep resentative and Thompson shook their rists at each other until the Bpeaker restored order. Just as the bill reached a condition where It became unrecognisable, McKlnney moved to refer It to the committees on Judiciary and revision of lawa and with the un derstanding that the committee ahould report tomorrow afternoon. Jones, of Clackamas, agreed to the motion. Prospects are not bright for the pas sage of the bill at this session. Fouts, Peterson, Derby, Hollls and Neuner are on the Judiciary committee, while Brooke, Thompson, Buchanan, Miller and Cole make up the revision of laws committee. They are probably about evenly divided on the bill, and will un questionably recommend amend ments. In such an event the bill, when passed by the House, will have to go back to the Senate for action on the amended measure. With the end of the session less than two days distant, there is not much hope of the bill becoming a law, though Dlmlck still haa a righting chance to pull bis chestnuts from, the flre BASKET- BALL TEAM FROM O.A.C.
