Old Wooden Blocks Which Munici
pality Did 'ot Guarantee
Cause Trouble.
Property owners who are protesting
ncainst the well-nigrh impassable con
dition of First street, will probably
have to hear the expense of repairing-
it. Three years ago, when the
pavement was laid, the city guaranteed
it for ten years, but it is asserted
that the sections of the pavement now
worn out were not guaranteed. New
wooden blocks were not laid on all
jiarts of the street because it was
bnlieved that the old ones were good
onough for the time being. It is said
that it is the old blocks that are giving
the trouble.
Yesterday afternoon at a meeting of
the executive board, a petition was
presented by the First Street Improve
ment Association asking the city to
make good its guarantee, as the street
from Madison to Stark street is in
need of repairs. City Engineer Taylor
stated that the old pavement was the
source of the trouble. City Attorney
McNary declared that he did not be
lieve the city had authority to make
the improvements asked. The matter
was referred to the street committee
of the executive board.
The report of Chief Campbell and
Teputy Fire Marshal Roberts was read.
It states, among other things, that
the electric wiring of the City .Hall
is defective. Many features of the
wiring system were condemned in the
report, and immediate steps will .be
taken to remedy the defects. The re
port says it will cost approximately
jlOOO to make the alterations. The re
port was referred to the City Hall
committee, and the Council will be
asked to make an appropriation to
cover the expenditure.

Women Were Alarmed Over Report
That Such Title Would Make
Amendment Illegal,
The members of the State Suffrage As
sociation had something of a scare last
week, when it was unofficially reported
to them that the title Equfi.l Suffrage"
for their proposed amendment was not
legal, and even if carried by the vote of
the state would not be valid, but that the
title should be "Woman's Suffrage." This
meant, apparently, that all the signers of
the petitions which have been circulated
since the defeat at the last election would
have to be approached again and the long
list of names which have been secured
would have to be made up and verilied all
At the meeting of the association last
week the matter was quietly discussed
and it was determined to ask the State
Attorney-General for an official opinion,
and this was accordingly done. Mr. Craw-'
ford has answered, putting all fears of
the suffragists at rest, for it transpires
that the scare was created only by the in
quiry of a suffragist of Coos Bay, who
thought he would like the term of woman
suffrage better than equal suffrage. The
letter of Mr. Crawford to Mrs. Duniway
is self-explanatory:
"Salem, Or., Nov. 19. 1906. Mrs. Abigail
Scott Duniway, President Oregon State
Equal Suffrage Association, 292 Clay
street, Portland, Or. Dear Madam: Re
plying to yours of this date, relative to a
formula of petition for equal suffrage
amendment and stating that you have
been informed that the same must be
woman suffrage amendment, or words to
that effect, permit me to say that your
informant is mistaken. We informed the
equal suffragists of Coos County that they
could not change a petition after it had
been circulated. In other words, after the
petition was signed, then it could not be
changed, because the signers of the pe
titions are fixing their signatures to a
certain statement which they are sup
posed to have read and examined for
themselves, and they sign that petition re
questing that that matter be enacted into
law. Therefore this office held that no
one had any right to change the wording
of the proposed amendment after it had
been signed. If a change is desired, then
a new petition would necessarily have to
be circulated. However, as to the form
ula or heading to go on the ballot, at the
last election it read: 'For Equal Suffrage
Constitutional Amendment," and the
amendment was entitled 'Equal Suffrage
Amendment.' I am of the opinion that it
was sufficient, and I am also of the opin
ion that if it is entitled 'woman suffrage
amendment' it would also be sufficient
and legal In either case. Very respectfully
yours, A. M. CRAWFORD.
"A thing that pleased me very much in
this matter," said Mrs. Duniway yester
day, "was the prompt offer of a number
of our prominent members to begin the
arduous work of securing signers to the
petitions all over. They did not hesitate,
but immediately offered to begin on new
lists. We have secured fully the number
of names required something like 8000
but all the lists have not yet been veri
fied, as this takes some time. The suf
fragists are not letting any grass grow
under their feet this year, and we arc
most hopeful of flne results."
Conventions to Organize Labor Party
Called for Next Friday Night.
During the regular course of business
at the Federated Trades Council meeting
last evening the formal launching of the
proposed union political party was the
principal topic of discussion, and the
plans promulgated met with the entire
approval of all delegates present. Per
manent organization of the party will
be effected at a meeting to be held in
Union Hall, Second and Stark streets,
next Friday evening. Delegates from 53
unions in Portland will take part In the
The good roads' committee appointed at
the last meeting of the Federated Trades
Council a week ago reported that it had
conferred with the State, Good Roads
Commission at County Judge Webster's
office and that the plan advocated by
union labor met with some indorsement
by the commission. Several clauses in
troduced by the labor delegates relative
to the working of state prisoners on the
roads ' were incorporated in the articles
drawn up by the commission, and the
proposals will be further discussed at the
meeting to be held at the same place next
Monday evening.
The council acted on a bill to be in
troduced at the next session of the Legis
lature providing for the creation of a
commission to devise remedial legislation
restricting special privileges of corpora
tions and to provide for the repealing of
laws and parts of laws that conflict with
the proposed drafts.
The ordinance now before the City
Council presented by the Musicians'
Union and providing for the repeal of
the law against music in saloons was
unanimously indorsed, as it was shown
that music is permitted by the city in
the Hotel Portland and Hotel Oregon.
An outline of a proposed bill to be. pre
sented by the Miners' Union of Bourne.
Or., at the next session of the Legisla
ture providing for the appointment of a
State Mining Inspector, was read before
the meeting. No definite action ,was
taken, but a committee was appointed to
inquire into the merits of the measure.
A, movement is on foot to revive in
terest in the Building Trades Council,
which organization has been in a dor
mant state ever since the building trades
strike three years ago. The organization
has not gone out of existence, but meet
ings are no longer held.
W. H. Fitzgerald, secretary of the
council, was appointed business agent at
a stipulated salary, and will devote his
entire time to the business of the coun
cil and kindred organizations.
