Yesterday afternoon's session of the
Council was distinguished by all sorts of
liveliness, "especially when the two bill
board ordinances and the one relating to
the slaughtering of animals and. the in
spection of meats came up lor considera
tion. Almost as soon as Mayor "Williams
called the body to order Fred T. Merrill
arose to a question of privilege and stated
that he desired to apologize to "every
honest man m the Council" for deroga
tory remarks made at the last meeting,
wherein he had reflected upon the Integ
rity of all the members.
H. R. Albee arose with assumed serious
ness and accepted the apology, much to
cteryboay's amusement, and A. F. Flegel
followed in the same vein, but Councilman
Zimmerman could not see it that way,
and demanded to know whom he referred
to when he stated that there were dis
honest men In the Council.
This Merrill declined to do, and the af
fair promised to become very acrimonious,
until the Mayor poured oil on the troubled
water by suggesting that If there was no
objection Mr. Merrill's apology would be
accepted by the Council as a whole.
After a lot of routine buslnci?s had been
transacted, the substitute for the Bentley
billboard ordinance, as drawn by the li
cense committee, came up for considera
tion, being an amendment to section 9 of
ordinance No. 14053, relating to distribu
tors and blllporters. It Imposes a license
of 1100 a year for the first named and 5400
a year for the privilege of billposting,
which practically shut out everybody ex
cept the firm of Foster & Klelscr. who
row hold a monopoly of the business.
Mr. Flegel wanted to hear from the
street committee concerning their reasons
for amending the Bentley ordinance.
Mr. Sharkey. In reply, stated that It dif
fered only In the manner of collecting the
revenue from the billposters. The Bent
ley ordinance provided for a license upon
a basis of 53 for each 100 square feet, and
Mr. Sharkey said that it was the City
Attorney's opinion that the expense of
collecting the license under those circum
stances would more than consume all the
Mr. Flegjl opposed the report of the
license committee upon the ground that
the passage of such an ordinance would
have the effect of perpetuating a bill-posting
monopoly, and considered that the
only equitable way of licensing billboards
all over town would be upon the square
foot basis. From his point of view, bill
boards were a nuisance on general prin
ciples, and every feature of the license in
the proposed ordinance was Iniquitous.
The Councilman from the Tenth ward
took occasion alt-o to pay his compliments
to the monopoly enjoyed by Foster &
Mr. Zimmerman moved to accept the
Bentley ordinance, and Mr. Flegel sec
onded the motion, and the question of
submitting the Bentley ordinance for the
one reported by the committee was then
C. E. Rumelln wanted to know if it was
the intention to put the billboards out of
fxistence, and thought that any square
f ot license proposition would have that
fffecL It was brought out Incidentally
v'rlng the course of his remarks that
Rumelln Is very much Interested In the
streetcar advertising, and someone sug
gested that he might be afraid that the
( ouncll would mennee that business also
leforc it got through.
Mr. Sharkey could not understand why
the Council felt disposed to drive such a
legitimate business out of existence, and
declared that he was the author of the
original legislation affecting billboards,
and that the Supreme Courts of 16 states
have "held them to be a necessary evil.
According to his ideas. If provision Is
made limiting the height of the billboards.
If would have a tendency to drive them
Into court and curtail all revenue on that
account, without accomplishing the de
sired object of suppressing the so-called
evil, or even keeping it within reasonable
Bentley remarked that he was perfectly
willing to take chances on the question
of the legality of his ordinance, and
agreed to submit a 50-cent per square
foot rate instead of 53.
The Mayor was about ready to put the
question when Mr. Sharkey asked the
privilege of the floor upon behalf of
George W. Klelser. of the bin-posting
firm of Foster & Klelser, who said that
firm had Invested $50,990 arid gave employ
ment to 58 men. "When his firm first en
gaged in blll-iposting it was in bad shape,
according to Klelser. The boards all over
the city were in a ragged condition, and
everything about it was disorderly, but
they had gone about it systematically,
until now all the boards are in good con
dition, without danger to the public
According to Klelser, the chief difficulty
connected with the business was on ac
count of the trouble in obtaining avail
able ground upon which to erect bill
boards. He said that his firm could give
better service because they would look
out for everything and not permit the
boards to become dilapidated, and cited
an instance where Ringllng Bros.' circus
and, Buffalo Bill's Wild West show had
rented space from private individuals
along Washington. Morrison and other
principal streets, upon which they had
posted cloth signs. Rather than have the
impression go abroad that they were re
sponsible for such a condition, Foster &
Klelser "had. at their own expense, . re
moved these obnoxious banners, and now,
whenever they sublease to anybody, they
make it a condition precedent that tho
lessee shall comply with certain regula
tion having a tendency to keep the city
Klelser also said that the monopoly en
joyed by his firm prevented the promiscu
ous distribution of advertising matter
throughout the streets of the city, and
was responsible for their cleanly appear
ance In that respect. He had consulted
with the license committee, he said, and
also the City Attorney, and they had
agreed that the best way to conduct the
business was upon a monopoly basis. A
flat rate of 5400, or even a greater amount,
would protect everybody.
When he had finished, Mr. Zimmerman
said that Kleisers explanation had
changed his mind, and he would now of
fer to withdraw the Bentley ordinance.
Several members of the Council got the
floor at the same time at this juncture,
and for awhile the chamber was in an
uproar, the Mayor finally submitting the
question upon the adoption of the Bent
ley ordinance, which was lost by the fol
lowing vote: Ayes Flegel. Albee and
Bentley. Noes Foelier, Merrill, Rumelln,
Sharkey. Sherrett. Whiting and Zimmer
man. The substitute was then adopted
by the same vote.
The action of the Council in passing the
substitute Insured plain sailing for the
Sharkey ordinance amending an ordinance,
and it went through with a rush. It re
lates also to billboards, and prescribes the
methods of -their erection and the material
for their construction.
Mr. Flegel thereupon moved to take up
the meat ordinance reported to the Coun
cil by a special committee appointed by
the Mayor and consisting of Messrs. Zim
merman and Sharkey.
Mr. Albee said that section 3 of the pro
posed ordinance delegated to the City
Board of Health the power to select an
abattoir, while section G named the Pa
cific States Packing" Company as such ab
battolr. Ho moved to strike out the
words, "that the Pacific States Packing
Company be known as the Portland
Abbatolr, where animals may be taken
for slaughter and bo Inspected."
This brought Mr, Zimmerman to his
feet In a hurry. He owns the ground
upon which the plant of the packing com
pany is situated, and objected vehemently
to striking out that feature. In the course
of his remarks the member from the
Sixth ward stated that a newspaper had
"blackmailed him editorially, last Friday
Mr. Zimmerman further defended his
action in supporting the proposed ordi
nance by the contention that it had the
indorsement of the City Board of Health
and by United States Inspector Love-
berry, who was present.
Mr. Sharkey favored the ordinance also,
and said that when It was first presented
for his consideration he took pains to
make inquiry concerning Its authorship,
and when assured that it bore the In
dorsement of the City Board of Health he
consented to stand by It.
Considerable discussion followed the in
traduction of the measure, being particl
pated in by nearly all the Councilmen,
Messrs. Albee and Flegel being about the
only ones opposed to it, and after City
Attorney McNary had given his opinion
that the selection of the Pacific States
Packing Company as abattoir would have
no effect upon the suits now pending
against the concern In the Police Court
for maintaining a nuisance and maintain
ing a slaughter-house In the city limits,
or legalize Its operations In any way. Mr.
Albee finally consented to vote for it, and
it was passed intact, with only tlje dis
senting vote of Mr. Flegel.
LICENSE FOR CLUBHOUSE
Milwankle Council Grants the Appli
cation of George A. Duncan.
Ordinance No. 11, passed last night by
the Milwaukie Council, provides that no
house siiere commissions or wagers on
horse racing are paid, shall be allowed to
run In Milwaukie unless a license of 5S00
per annum, payable quarterly, be paid.
Mayor William Schlndler presided.
Councilmen Strelb, Hlverly, Wetzler and
Kelso voted for the passage of the ordi
nance. A single protest against the pass
ajce of the ordinance was made by Mr.
Irvine, who seemed to think that the
ordinance might let the bars down for
general gambling. Mayor Schlndler re
marked that he desired to do what would
be the best toward building up Milwaukie.
He spoke of the recent sale of the church
property to some Portland people, which
he said he hoped would result in the
water-front being thrown open to manu
facturing establishments. Following came
an application to sell liquor from George
A. Duncan. It was acted on at once and
granted by a unanimous vote of the
Council. Mr. Duncan is supposed to rep
resent the persons who are building the
clubhouse in Electric Park, although
there was nothing in the application to
Indicate that this was the case. An ordi
nance was Introduced for maintaining
order in Milwaukie, including the keep
ing Of all minors out of saloons and off
the streets. It was read once and ordered
posted to come up at the next regular

and this was the cause of the action of a
majority of the Council. Messrs. Merrill,
Sharkey, Sherrett and Zimmerman were
unwilling to adopt such a summary
method of closing It up, while Messrs.
Albee. Bentley, Flegel, Foeller and Whit
ing were in favor of the idea.
Mr. Flegel said that the proprietors had
promised repeatedly to keep women out
of the boxes by May 1. but had failed to
do so. and he moved that their license be
Mr. Bentler seconded the motion as
member of the liquor license committee.
while both Mr. Merrill and Mr. Zimmer
man defended the place. Mr. Zimmerman
said James McDevitt. one of the proprie
tors, was a square man, who had been In
veigled into buying the property under a
misapprehension, and he thought it was
no more than right that he should bo
notified of the intention to revoke the
license unless he consented to keep
women out of the boxes.
Mr. Benticy replied that every oppor
tunity had been afforded the proprietors
to conduct the house properly, but with
out success, and he asked for a roll-call
on the question.
Mr. Sharkey thought It was a shame to
oust the present proprietors in order to
relet the establishment, and did not think
those back of tho movement to get rid of
the present tenants were sincere.
This suggestion gave Mr. Zimmerman
an idea, and he recalled an Instance
where a man had approached him
month ago- and Inquired if tho Orpheum
license had been revoked, and to let him
know as soon sals it was, as he wanted
to take a lease of It when it was vacated

to conduct "The Oaks," a resort a few
