Rev. Proctor has taken a forward or
advanced stand on several economic
quest tons which ho has considered
concerned him a a paator and public
speaker and was not certain as to
whether or not his people agreed with
him in what he had done. With a
view to testing thla matter and satis
fying himself in th caae, ho aaked
for an Informal expression from th
people of th church. Th rot of
confidence In him and of hop that h
remain was unanimous.
After th meeting waa over a mem

If th city goes ahead against the

PORTLAND, Or, March 2 (Spl.)
Voter of this city probably wUI I
have, a ehance at tho election next
Juno to express themselves on the
projected $1,000,000 auditorium which
is planned for Portland. It la expect
ed to draft an ordinance to bo present
ed to the council asking that voters
decide tho matter by their ballots and
if the project Is endorsed, bonds will
be issued by tho city and tho auditor
ium will be built.
Tho Live Wires have the matter In
hand and Chairman Craig of that or
ganization will take step to get the
required 3000 signatures to a petition
to place the proposition on tho ballot'
It is believed the people will support
the proposition as the need for a large
public meeting place Is felt every lit
tle while. It is a necessity If Port
land is to get big conventions.
There was something of a dispute
at Council Wednesday evening over
tho grade on "Jefferson street, between
Seventh and Eighth streets. There Is
a considerable cut In Jefferson street
at this point, and the street here
abuts the property of T. L. Charman.
Several years ago Mr. Charman went
to considerable expense In putting up
a retaining waU here, first consulting
the street commissioner at that time
aa to what might bo done In raising
nr lowerina- the walk ao aa to know
t-what to5 do In laying the foundation
fop-the wall. Then Mr. Charman duiu
tho wall on what wa believed would
be tho grade established.
But the present atrett improve
menta contemplate a change In grade
that leavca this wall somewhat up In
the air and Mr. Charman object to
It. In consequence he wa before
Council Wednesday evening to aak
that In making final grades that tho
position of hla property and tho effect
on ita value bo taken Into considera
tion. Tho present sidewalk level J
satisfactory to Mr. Charman.
Tho nresent City Engineer wa
brought Into tho controversy and wa
of opinion that Mr. Meldrum had done
all he could for tno property in view
of tho fact that tho city had deter
mined on tho Improvement of the
street City Engineer could not see
hla way clear to accept what Mr.
Council, not wishing to bo hasty or
atubbom, decided to refer tho matter
to tho City Engineer for further con

DRIVER SAYS HE HAD AN EPILEP;
TIC FIT, THAT HE WAS ONCE
SUBJECT TO THEM.
The mystery of the team left stand
ing near the Pulp Station Tuesday
night, and the disappearance ot the
driver, has been solved. Th- team
belonged to G. W. Metcalf. who has
been living near Gresham buc Is now
of Salem. He and his hired man were
in Portland for a load of goods Tues
day and when loaded the man waa
started for Salem, the destination of
the two. Metcalf took the electric
from Portland to Salem and the driv
er was to drive to Salem, making Can
by for th stopping place of the night
But the driver stopped in Oregon
City and while hero took on more fire
water than nature had provliod for.
Result was the driver was more or
less intoxicated. At tho Pulp Station
the driver fell out of the wagon, the
team stopped, the driver took a long
nap and when he came to himself be
started on without the team, suppos
ing that tho team had become disgust
ed and left Then he was ashamed
to show his head because of his lax
neas In performing duty.
The check took found In tho wagan
was that of the owner of the team
and dropped Into the wagon while the
load was being put on. The owner,
when notified, came on from Salem
and claimed his team. About this
time tho man had discovered that th
team had not been found by tna own

had an epileptic fit, which ha used to

Upon Exporionc Ar
Ar th road supervisor giving to
th people of tho county result In
road of a durable nature, that will
Juatify th County Court In It taxa
tion of th people, and acceptance of
This is a question which I shall at
tempt to answer In my own way.' -
First, we hav four rock crushers,
on road roller, about six -road grad
ers, not - an average of bne wheel
scraper to each district, probably four
slips to each district, and- ono plow
per district ' . -
Now with this equipment let us see
what I tb opportunity of the super
visor. Four crushers to SS supervis
ors 1 about ono to 13. - Allowing 120 "'
days to be tho time of actual work
gives nine days to each supervisor.
Th crusher having on an average,
tho capacity of 85 yard per day,
would give 765 yard of crushed rock.
This spread 12 feet wide, IS lnchea
deep, would cover , 765 yard, of road
In each district per working season.
Thus, it is clearly visible that th
equipment Is not sufficient to allow
time for. good work or proper result
for money spent.
Secondly another cause of unneces-'
sary expenditure I the lack of sys-
f em. Heretofore, the system, if such "
it may be called, adopted by the .
County Court and tho people of the . .
county ha been: -
Recommend and appoint the super-
visor to spend the money according
to hi own Idea and thoeo of a few
of th "heavy taxpayer of th district.
regardless of th practical results. -The
results of this system have been
so, unsatisfactory that It Is now necea-
sary that It bo changed for something
better. . .
I would recommend that the County
Court formulat plans for all roads to
be built In the county, whether rock
or gravel, and these plans bo carried
out by the supervisors of tho several
districts, and for such roads built In
accordance with these plana, the
County Court become responsible for
a space of five year.
If they aro not willing to do this
let them appoint a man aa general
superintendent who has a practical
knowledge of roads, and can survey
and build roads. Let this man have
the supervision of all roads to bo con-
st rue ted In the county, and let him
lay them off and give the supervisor
specifications of the work.
If a supervisor Is found who cannot
follow his directions In a workmanlike
manner, let the superintendent bava
the power to remove said supervisor
and select a man from said district
who is able to do said work according
I wish to aay In regard to tho money
spent In Road District No. 13 during
the past twelve years, during which
tim I hav been supervisor, tho
greater part of tho time, that I firmly
believe jme-thlrd of the money spent
on cuts and grades has been spent
with no lasting benefit to the roads.
If I had been working under the
supervision of a competent engineer
the loss would have been but small,
but some part of this loss has been
due to the lack of necessary machin
ery with which to work.
During my service for fifteen years,
last year was the first time I over
had the opportunity to build a piece .
of road, according to my Idea, which
I think will be lasting. But on ac
count of the scarcity ot crushers and
rollers they were taken from mo be
fore I had time to finish It In a work
manlike manner, -
I say once more, give u a chance
with a system, with tools to work
with and you will see better results.
