UP TO THE NEXT COUNCIL
QUESTION OF EXPENDING BICYCLE
Commissioners Have 3fe Rlarkt to
Construct Paths en tke Streets
Wheelmen "Will Act.
"Whether or not the wheelmen of Port
land are to have the city paths they are
clamoring for depends on the action of
the next Council. The Commissioners
have no power to build paths anywhere
Inside the city limits. The money collect
ed for taxes last year has been practically
all expended. Ninety-eight miles of
smooth cycle ways, leading to almost
every quarter of the county, furnish
proof to any one who cares to look for
It that this money accomplished some
thing. Now the wheelmen think there
are paths enough in the country, for the
present at least. They -want to be able
to ride on the streets without being mired
every other block, and they aro not dis
posed to give up their money for taxes
unless they feel assured that they will
be able to do so. This assurance the
Commissioners are unable to give them,
so the whole question is up to the next
City Council. As the present one has but
two days more to serve, it is not prob
able that It will consume any time in
worry about bicycle paths.
The Commissioners are disposed to do
anything they can to accommodate the
-wheelmen. The money is paid by the
wheelmen, is of the wheelmen, and they
think it should be expended for the
wheelmen. If the bicycle riders can per
suade the Council to grant the privilege
of building paths through-the streets, the
Commissioners will very gladly furnish
iho money as long as it lasts, and the
brains, as long as they are in office,
requisite to the task. It is nothing to
them whether they build paths on the
streets or In the country. It is a good
deal to the bicyclists, and more than
likely every member of the incoming
Council has heard something about their
-lews on the subject before this.
Tho Bicycle Taxpayers Association will
elect a governing council tonight. Tho
members of the council whom they choose
will make it their business to secure the
needed legislation. If such legislation can
be secured. The United Wheelmen's As
sociation, out of whose ashes the pres
ent organization has sprung, succeeded In
getting the bicycle tax law through an
Indifferent Legislature, and their suc
cessors feel that it Is Incumbent upon
them to bring the Council to the wheel
men's point of lew. As the citizens of
Portland at large are about as anxious
to have wheelmen provided with somo
avenue of travel other than the side
walks, as are the riders themselves, the
task of persuasion ought not to be dif
ficult. Meanwhile, there are mumblings and
grumblings among the wheelmen them
selves. Last year they paid the tax with
apparent willingness.- This year they see
that It has become an Institution, and
will recur annually like a life insurance
premium or the Fourth of July. They
are beginning to be afraid of It. The ne
cessity of seizing wheels for the non
payment of the tax, and the numbers ot
wheels that have found their way to the
Sheriff's o'fflce shows that the tendency
toward resistance is growing. Slany rid
ers contend that now the county Is well
supplied with paths no more will be built,
and they fear the money they pay out
for taxes will never Teturn again. "When
a man becomes a taxpayer he takes an
enduring interest in the expenditure of
public money, and the protesters say they
feel sure that they are wasting their
one twenty-five when they pay it out
In an exchange for an aluminum tag,
which secures them immunity from mo
lestation by the lynx-eyed special col
lectors. It Is reported that several wheelmen
have clubbed together for the purpose of
contesting the law, a proceeding whose
magnitude and expense they probably do
no fully understand. Others say that
they simply will not pay the tax, and
that the collectors can seize their wheels
and be blanked for all they care. The dis
satisfaction is growing, beyond a doubt,
and will not be quelled until It becomes
apparent how the Commissioners are go
ing to dispose of the money the Sheriff
Is now collecting for them.
As is usual, however, the klckirs are
In the minority. The large" number of
wheelmen are paying their tax, ami th
fund in the Sheriffs hand is grow'ng
Something over 6000 tags have been sold,
and the untagged bicycle is ujunlly con
spicuous on the streets by Its lontHne.ss.
The Commissioners have nothing to say
about their intention In the matter of the
disposition of the money, which Is now
coming In. They will explain at length
what they have done with the money
which has passed through their hands,
and they assert that even in case the
Council rules paths off the streets there
are miles and miles of paths In the coun
try suffering to be built enough to use
up every cent of this year's money. In
addition to this, the keeping up of those
already laid Is no 'small Item of expense,
and will Increase as the wear of many
wheels, and the lashing of many rains
erode their surface. But until they sound
out the sentiment of the riders they will
not commit themselves as to any course
they Intend to pursue, and It will prob
ably not be till workmen begin to break
ground that any intimation will be given
of the termini or direction of the new
paths. ThoBe who know of the tendency
of wheelmen to demand paths in every
'conceivable highway and byway in the
country and even out of It. can under
stand the method In this secrecy. -
As has been stated, since the money
from bicycle taxes began to. come In last
year, 9S miles of paths have been con
structed. The first one built was good,
the second better, and the work has Im
proved as experience taught the Com
missioners better methods of construc
tion. The paths which are. now laid, and.
which, by the way, are used throughout
their entire length by scores and per
haps, hundreds of riders daily, are as
