VOTERS TO DECIDE
Three Issues to Go Before
Electors in June.
SRIDGE TAX LEVY IS ONE
Annexation of Section of Land West
of Mt. Tabor and Strip Between
Portland and St. Johns Will
Also Be Settled.
Electors of Portland in the June city
election -will decide -whether to authorize
the Council" to levy a special annual tax
of 2 mills for bridges costing- $15,000 or
more, and whether to annex two areas
now outside the municipal limits one, a
section of land west of Mount Tabor; the
other, a strip of land lying between the
present boundaries of Portland and St.
Johns, the Willamette River and the Co
lumbia. The section west of Mount Tabor is
number 6 and lies south of the Base
Une road. Its eastern line is about -550
feet above "West Avenue and its western
line about 600 feet east of Pretty man ave
nue. The southern line for almost Its enT
tire length parallels Section Line road
nearly 200 feet south of that highway.
The area is one mile square, contains
people to the number of almost 2500 and
property to the assessed valuation last
year of perhaps $1,000,000.
The other area proposed for annexation
averages one-half mile wide and is one
mile long, containing 100 persons and
property asssessed at about $150,000.
Annexation of each, in order to carry,
must be approved by a majority of the
electors voting: on the question, not only
in Portland, but also in the two areas.
The section west of Mount Tabor is not
to be added to Portland School District.
Special Tax for Bridges.
The special 2-mIll tax, if sanctioned by
the people, will be levied by the Council
to pay not only for bridges which may
hereafter be built, but also for bridges
which were built in 1904 under the dis
trict asssessment plan and one in South
Portland not yet finished. Assessments
have not yet been levied for those via
ducts. They are the Willamette Heights
Bridge and the First-street and Front
street bridges In South Portland.
The Multnomah delegation In the leg
islature had a fight over combination
of future bridges with those of 1901 on
the ballot. The members at one time
agreed to separate them so that electors
could vote to pay for future bridges out
of the 2-mlll tax and for the 1904 bridges
by the old plan; at least such is the tes
timony of such members as Mills. Linthi-
cum, Killingsworth, Malarkcy and Sichel.
but others contend that the delegation
agreed to yoke the two questions Into
one and thus present them to the people
for them to vote on "yes" or "no."
The bill was introduced by Representa
tive Colwell, and when it passed the
House not all the legislators from Mult
nomah knew of the combination. In the
Senate the bill was held up by Malarkey,
who Insisted that the delegation had
never agreed to pass the measure with
the two questions hooked up together,
thus depriving electors of the privilege of
voting one way on levying the 2-mlll tax
lor future bridges and another way on
paying' for last year's bridges out of that
tax. The bill went through, however, as
amended, but left antagonisms which
have not yet been erased.
Would Tax Whole City.
The bill authorizes the Council to levy
a 2-miH tax in addition to other taxes
allowed by the charter on the whole city,
thus abolishing the district assessment
system. The revenue from the tax is to
accrue to the "special bridge fund." The
"Bald special bridge fund shall be used
only for the purpose of paying for the
construction of bridges in said city else
where than across the Willamette River,
the estimated cost of which by said city
shall not be less than $15,000 each, and
also for the purpose of paying for any
bridge or bridges not across the Willam
ette River which were constructed in and
by said city during the year 1904 or which
are now under course of construction
under contract with said city and which
have not been paid for prior to January
1. 1905; provided, that this provision shall
not be construed so as to include elevated
roadways, tramways, or any structures
other than bridges across gulches and ra
vines. The said City of Portland shall
postpone all proceedings toward the as
sessment, levy or collection of special as
sessments on property within the several
districts described as being benefited by
bridges constructed during the year 1904
or which are under course of construc
tion as above described until June 15. 1905.
and if this act is approved as hereinafter
provided (by vote of the electors of the
city) said proceedings shall- be perma
nently discontinued and said bridges shall
be aid for out of the 'special bridge
, yd' herein provided for.
" "The said City of Portland is hereby
further authorized, until said special tax
shall be collected, to pay out of the gen
eral fund of said city, or after said special
tax has been collected, to pay out of said
special bridge fund, Interest at the legal
rate upon all money due upon contracts
for the construction of said bridges built
by said city during the year 1904, or
which are now under course of construc
tion, under contract with said city. Said
amounts due shall bear interest from and
after the approval and acceptance of said
bridges and until paid."
The act further provides that street
railway companies which have received
franchises over any bridges built under
the special district plan shall pay their
"full share of the cost of construction."
SONS HEED THE NATAL DAY
Revolutionary Society Hears Ad
dresses by Mayor and Others.
The anniversary or Washington's
birthday, which occurred yesterday,
was a notable event in the history of
the Oregon Society of Sons of the
Using' the afternoon for an annual
business meeting- and an election of of
ficers and the evening- for an open meet
ing and smoker, the society fully util
ized the day for the remembrance of
their revered leader.
At the afternoon meeting- General
Thomas M. Anderson was elected to the
presidency of the society. An attempt
was made to have the retiring- presi
dent, Mayor Williams, succeed himself,
and it was only on the repeated pro
tests of the Mayor that the society con
sented to allow him to withdraw. The
other officers elected were Wallace Mc
Camant. vice-president: Harrison G.
Piatt, secretary; Herbert B. Augur,
treasurer; W. H. Chapin, registrar.
The board of managers appointed for
the ensuing year consists of Mayor
George H. Williams, Tyler Woodward,
B. B. Beekman and Thomas G. Greene.

informal smoker. The new president,
General Anderson, occupied the chair,

Mr. Ewing displayed that rare faculty
of giving the keynote to his subject in
his opening statement. lt is extreme

We are well acquainted with George
Washington, with his career and with

SHOW SCHOOLS AT THE PAIR
Unique Educational Exhibits in Prep
aration by Suburban Schools.
Several of the suburban school districts
have laid plans for preparing special ex
hibits for the educational display at the
Lewis and Clark Fair. Professor W. A.
Law, of the South Mdunt Tabor School,
expects to show the construction of the
Bull Run pipe line from Portland to the
headworks, with appropriate pictures, as
part of the display from that school. The
school is located near the Lower Mount
Tabor reservoir, and the pupils are fa
miliar with pipe line. Many pictures
have been taken by amateur photog
raphers of scenes along the line. These
pictures are what Professor Law and the
school want to get, and any information
leading to their discovery will be thank
fully received, and will reach Professor
Law if addressed to him at Lents. R.
At the St Johns School, the big woolen
mills, the sawmills, the veneer and
basket plants will be described and Illus
trated. Mount Tabor District No. 5 is
at work, and the Montavilla School has
made a start. This latter school will
prepare product maps.
Mrs. Edith Tozler-Weatherred Is heln-
ing out the schools. She lectured on the
St. Louis Fair in the Montavilla Odd
fellows Hall a few nights ago, and the
school there received a considerable por
tion of the proceeds. The directors of
this district have informed PrinclDal N
W. Bowland that they would make an
appropriation to meet the expenses of
getting pictures and meeting any other
expenses incident to the preparation of
tne exmoit. But not all the districts
can do this, and the principal and teach
ers are left to their own resources to get
money ior expenses. airs, weatherred
