Says Filling of Low Ground With
Slabs Should Be Prohibited
In Interest of Consumers.
Six weeks appears to Mayor Lane to
be a longer period than necessary for
property-owners to leave wood plied up
In the streets in front of their residences
and he yesterday voted the ordinance
passed by the Council (tlvlnur that
privilege to people residing outside the
tire limits. The Council passed the or
dinance because many complaints were
received from those who had been
ordered to clear the, streets In front of
their premises, but the chief executive
believes that there is no reason whj the
present law should not be lived up to.
"There Is. In fact." he says, "no logical
reason why wood for fuel purposes
should be allowed to obstruct the streets
at all, and there is also no more reason
for green wood to be allowed to lie until
dry before moving it than there would be
for allowing green lumber, for building
purposes, to lie in the streets until sea
soned. In fact there are many articles
of home consumption, that take up less
room, which with equal Justice can claim
a right to obstruct the streets of the city,
such as prunes, fish, hops and many
The Mayor takes occasion in his mes
sage to the Council to assert that there
s altogether too much wood left piled in
the streets at present. ""We have long
hoped," he says, "to show visitors a
vlslta of clean and unobstructed streets.'
in place of unsightly plies of green slab
wood, the entire source of supply of
which. Is In the hands of a bowelless
trust, which, rather than sell Its surplus
at a reasonable price, cold-bloodedly
dumps It by hundreds of cords Into such
ravine and sloughs as are most acces
sible." Continuing, the Mayor intimates that
such a law would be equivalent to plac
ing Portland in the "cow town" class.
"It is a step backward in the civic de
velopment of the city," he declares, "and
would go far to place us on a par with
a country village where hogs are allowed
to root and wallow In the unkempt
"If your honorable body is desirous of
doing something to ameliorate the con
ditions of the poor man who uses slab
wood for fuel," concludes Mayor Lane,
, "I take the liberty to suggest that you
can do a great deal In that direction If
you will pass an ordinance prohibiting' all
persons from making fills of low ground
with such slabwood, such fills being
dangerous flretraps, unsafe to build upon,
and the slowly rotting organlo mateclal
being inimical to the health of the com
munity as well. Such a law as this
would also put the price of slabwood to a
figure commensurate with its value, and
the; blessings of tha people would be
showered upon you."
Gas Investigation Committee Will
Hold Final Meeting Tonight.
Councilman Menefee, chairman of .the
committee which made an Investigation
Into the affairs of the Portland Gas
Company, has called a meeting of that
body for this evening In the Council room
at the City Hall. It Is expected that the
final report of the committee will be
prepared at this session.
Several times recently have meetings of
this committee been called, but each time
a quorum has been lacking, as many of
the Councllmen have been out of the
city. As they have all returned, a full
attendance of the committee members is
expected tonight
Portland General Electric Company
Asks That Second BUI Be
Allowed to Pass First.
A postponement of action upon the ordi
nance providing for changes conducive to
safety in the overhead wire system of the
city was asked yesterday by Oskar
Huber, appearing before the ways and
means committee of the Council, on be
half of the Portland General Electric
Company. The request was made on the
ground that the proposed ordinance might
conflict In Its results with the other ordi
nance before the Council, which provides
that all high-voltage lines be put under
ground. The company is desirous that
the latter measure be acted upon first.
Mr. Huber stated that the company ex
pects to begin Immediately to put tie
high-voltage wires underground, a change
which will require the expenditure of
$500,000. It was desired, however, he said,
to ascertain definitely the limits of the
wire ordinance, so that they would know
exactly what overheard lines would have
to be changed to conform with the safety
wiring ordinance. The company, he add
ed, has no objections to . the passage of
the measure.
Because of the request of Mr. Huber,
no action on the ordinance was taken by
the committee. A special meeting for that
purpose will be held tomorrow morning
at 10 o'clock.
The proposal to create the office of As
sistant Building Inspector, which has
been hanging fire several weeks, was
shelved by the committee. The members
of the committee admit that the city
needs such an official,- as the volume of
building is so great that it cannot be
properly taken care of by one man; but
they will not take action because, as they
put It, they do not want the Mayor to
"lead them around by the nose."
Some time ago the Council passed an
ordinance creating the office of Assistant
Building Inspector, and also making an
appointment. Mayor. Lane vetoed the
measure, alleging that the Council had
no power to fill the position. Now the
members of the ways and means com
mittee lay all the blame at his door.
Councilman Rushlight stood out alone'
against the action. He asserted that the
ordinance should be considered In the light
of the need of the city, and that the
Council should overlook the part which
Mayor Lane was taking In the matter.
Two Coyotes With One Bullet.
KIONA, Wash., Sept; 17. (Special.)-i
Peter Watson, a traveler by way of
"prairie schooner," reports a curious ex
perience while camped near Klona the
other day. He started down the road
afoot with his rifle. Intending to try to
secure a duck on the river. He was
walking on soft sand, when two coyotes
came out of the sagebrush in front of
him. They were not ten yards from him,
but their attention was attracted by some
sound in the opposite direction and they
did not see him. The wind was also in
his favor. They stood In such a position
that when he fired the bullet killed both
animals in their tracks.
