PRESIDENT OF COUNCIL SAYS
HE IS NOT READY TO
' MAKE ANNOUNCEMENT.
PETITION IS BEING CIRCULATED
Commission Form Of Government Or
Reduction Of Mamberahip
Of Counoil Favored
A petition to William Andresen.
president of the City Council, th-t he
become a candidate for Mayor was
circulated Monday, and many signa
tures were obtained. Mr. Andfesen,
when told that the petition was being
circulated for signatures, declared
that . be had nothing to say on thtt
subject Friends, however, said that
he probably would make a definite
announcement In a few days.
Mr. Andresen baa a large follow
ing, and it ia generally conceded that
he would make an excellent mayor.
He bas aerved six years as a mem
ber of the council, and announced last
week that ha would out -be a caudi-4
Jat for reelection. Mr. Andrecen
also declared In f avor of a commission
form of government for the city, and
aald If thla could not be obtained he
favored a reduction of the member
ship of the City Council. He thinks
that Ave councllmen couW attend to
the affairs of tha city . better than
nine. , t ' '
"The only objection' I can see to n
commission form of government," de
clared Mr. Andresen, "Is the possi
bility of unreliable men being -elecieil.
With reliable men In charge there is
no question that It would be far au
Tlbr to the present form of govern
ment, although tbe present council
has accomplished fine results."
Mr. Andresen haa many friend.
and. If be ecldes to enter the rac3
for Mayor be will be a hard man to
beat His record aa a councilman Is
one of the best of any man who ever
held the office. He thoroughly un
derstands city affairs. Is conscientious
and faithful, and has always looked
out for tbe city's Interests.
NEW RECORD IS MADE
FOR TAX COLLECTIONS
Persons who failed to pay the last
half of their taxes within the required
time, which expired Monday, will be
required to pay a penalty of 17 per
cent The total collected Monday was
probably the largest amount received
by the Sheriff for the final payments
In the history of the office. Chief
Deputy Staata said late In the after
noon that be and his assistants had
not been able to figure the total
amount Persons who pay their taxes
before March 15 get a rebate of 3 per
cent, and those who pay half prior to
the first Monday In April and the oth
er half before or on the first Monday
in October escape paying penalties.
The Sheriff will soon begin selling the
property of delinquents.
SENT TO JAIL FOR
Robert Clvln, who lives at Fifth
and Main streets, waa sentenced to
serve twenty five days In Jail bV Re
corder Stlpp Monday for giving
whisky to a man on Sunday. Harry
Brown was arrested Saturday night
by Policeman Frost on a charge of
Intoxication, and was released Sunday
by Chief of Police Shaw upon his de
positing a cash bail of $7.50. That
night he was found In an Intoxicated
condition again, and said whisky had
been given him by Calvin. Recorder
Stlpp fined Brown the 17.50 which he
had given as ball and Calvin was ar
rested. Brown left the city.

by Morning Enterprise reporter op

County Assessor-Jack and W. A. Hunt
ley, of Huntley Bros.' Company, were
among those who declared for the
commlasion form of government Mon
day. "I am In favor of giving the pro
posed plan a trial," said Recorder
Stlpp. "There ls no question In my
mind that three good men can man
age the affairs of the city better than
nine good men. .'Eternal vigilence Is
tbe price of liberty,' and so the men
In charge must give their best efforts
to the city's welfare. The counctl
Dicr;, who are working now without
pay, are business men and naturally
they cannot give aa much of their
time to. the management of tbe af
fairs of the city as men would em

even better results might be accorap

"I have been in favor of .Oregon
City adopting the Commission form
of government ever since It proved a
success in Gslveston," declared Mr.
Huntley. "The time has srrived when
It Is impossible to get tbe best men
to offer for the council. There Is too
much work for no pay. With com
missioners in charge It would be an
easy matter to fix the responsibility.
There Is no more reason why busy
men should serve gratia in the coun
cil than there would be for street
sweepers and policemen to do so. In
all the cltiea where the commission
form of government has been tried,
so far aa I know. It bas been a suc
cess, and I believe It would be here."
"I must admit that I am not as
well posted on the subject as I might
be," said Mr. Jack, "but I am con
vinced that the proposed change would
be avantageous to the city. If it ac
complished nothing more it would
simplify matters and do away with a
great deal of the red tape that now
exists. The voters would know who
were responsible for the mistakes,
and could hold them accountable. Un
der the present system this cannot
b Jone. I think tbe members of tbe
commission should be paid sufficient
ly so they could give all their time
to the work of the city."

who made an examination, said that
the aged recluse had been strangled to

The body waa brought to tbe Holman

Sheriff Mass has sent descriptions
of Charles Swain, the man employed
by Thomas, who Is mysteriously miaa
ing, to all cltiea in this and adjoining
statea. The rancher- waa killed Satur
day night and Swain was seen leaving
the house Sunday - morning. While
the coroner was holding the Inquest
a well dressed woman, who MriH.ah
lived in Portland, arrived at the Thom
as home. She hadn't heard of the trag
edy. and had a basket of delicacies
for tbe rancher. The woman said be
had no relatives In this country and
he was his best friend.
Coroner Wilson learned that Mr '
Thomas waa born in Herefordshire,
Eng.. November 9, 1839, and came o
the United Statea in 1877. He settled
first at Ridgeaeld. Wash., and then
Went tO Portland whnr ha onnrinot

cnnuren neing norn to them. All the
children are dead. . Several years af
ter tbe death of his first wife Mr.
Thomas and Anna Poulson were mar

The body was found by William N.
Chilcote. who with his brother Earl

the Thomas farm Sunday afternoon.
when he decided to run in and see if
Thomas had any oats for sale. He
went to the back door 'and on recelv- -ing
no answer opened the door lead- ;
ing into the dining room where he
found the body.
Chilcote immediately called the
other two members of his party and
they called Grant Sager, a farmer Ht
ing about 100 yards west of the Thom
as place. Sager at once notified Cor
oner Wilson and Sheriff Mass.
The last time Thomas waa seen
alive was Saturday evening about
dusk, when J. E. Donnelson. of Gresa
am, stopped at the Thomas place to
pay house rent At this time Thomas
was with Swain. Donnelson offered
Thomas $20. which waa la excess of
the rent due. Thomas opened bis
purse and exposed three twenty and
one five dollar piecea, but not suffl
-clent silver to make the. required
change. Donnelson left saying he
would pay him tbe next chance he
Sheriff Mass learned from an em
ployment bureau S that Swain had
worked for Thomas Just one week on
tbe day the crime waa committed.
Swain is tall, haa a short, sandy mus
tache and sallow complexion, and is
addicted to the use of cigarettea.
Many cigarette stubs were found ly

beside his bed was a dime novel, open
