SAYS PORTLAND 15 BEST
t-OlTHERX PACIFIC CASHIER
RETURN'S FROM EAST.
S. A. Tnrall Talks of Conditions In
Older Paris of Country and Con
trasts Them With Oregon.
The mnet peculiar question, as It
fppmM to me. I wns asked back Kast,
was whether the after-effects of the Chl
caso and St. Louis Repositions on realty
values followed the Lewl and Clark Ex
position In Portland." said St A. Thrall,
cashier of the Harrlman lines In th
Northwest, yesterday afternoon.
I told t'ipm." continued Mr. Thrall,
"that we had no after-effects out here.
Our Kjposltlon did not leave us "dead to
the world.' but instead. It caused a rise tn
values of .13 per cent in some Instances,
arid the erection of a number of 10 and
12-story hulldines. They would not have
believed me If I had not shown thera
pictures of the buildings."
Mr. Thrall has been a railroad man in
Tortlnnd for 32 years. For 26 years he
was with the Orejron & California Rail
road and Its successor, the Southern Pa
ciric. Since the merger of the Southern
and Cnton Pacific, he has been a Har
rlman agent. A month aco he went back
to visit hla old home. Oswego. N. T..
which he had not seen since he left it m
l7i. On the way he vloited- several rela
tives, one of them a banker in a smaller
New 'York city.
"He wa talking polities when I en.
tered his bank." said Mr. ThralL "I
lairghed when I heard him say that
thirjrs looked blue for Taft. I told him
the country w-as against Bryan, but he
would not believe me. I had come from
the t. and I was not supposed to
know anything. He did not know that in
Th Oregonlan I had Just as good a
source of news aa he had in the New
.Mr. Thrall went to Oswego, where h
met hl two elder brother. LJke his
cousin, both were doubtful as to the re
sult. "Many others also seemed to feel that
way." said Mr. Thrall. "Even in New
York City I met a number of men who
feared Bryan's election, and their fear
seemed to be centered In the results In
the West. I told them this end of the
country was safe, but still they appeared
to be unduly apprehensive. The streets
of New York afforded little ground for
apprehension, however. Out of every five
pictures of the two leading Presidential
candidates in the windows, only one was
of Bryan. And only about one man out
of five talked about Bryan."
Mr. Thrall returned by way of the
South. In the Carollnas. he said, the
drought was even greater than had
been reported in the press dispatches.
Wells had dried up, and some of the
cotton d:d not seem to get above the
brush, but atlll the growers said they
would pick a good crop. In the
fields he was amused at the Inquiring:
attitude of the darkies.
"They lived In square houses with
a chimney pipe at each end. a door In
the center and no windows." he said.
"A dnrkey would be before the door
and he would have a question to ask
about something he knew nothing
in California Mr. Thrall congratu
lated himself upon his return to West
"Kike Portland. los Angeles Is
steadily growing." he said. "San
Francisco picks up daily, and Is In
better shape now than at any time
since the fire. The West. I believe. Is
more prosperous than the Kast-"

MAYOR LANE GROWS SARCASTIC
AT EXPENSE OF CONTRACTORS
Suggests Putty for Cracks in Cementwork, While Commissioner Newell
Recommends Adhesive Tape.
MAYOR LANE announced yesterday
that he has discovered a remedy
for cracks In cement and concrete
Work, which have made life miserable of
late for contractors, city officials and pri
vate citizens. It Is very simple and
economical. Common, ordinary, every
day putty, the Mayor says, will solve the
problem, and It should be applied to the
cracks before the Inspection to made by
the members of the Executive Board.
Simultaneously with this discovery by
Mayor Lane, came another, equally as
valuable. It is believed, by J. A. Newell,
a member of the Executive Board. His
remedy Is carefully to place strips of
adhesive tape over the cracks. He Is
confident that, if properly applied, this
will work wonders In bringing about satls
The two discoveries were made publle
yesterday afternoon at a meeting of the
bridge committee of the Executive Board,
at which the acceptance of the Union
avenue and the East Twnty-elghth-street
bridges was considered. The Union-avenue
structure will be accepted, but there
is a crack in the concrete abutment wing
of the other bridge, which brought about
the caustic suggestions of the Mayor and
Mr. Newell. It was at first thought by
the Mayor and the members of the com
mittee that the bridge was seriously im
paired by the crack, but from statements
by City Engineer Taylor and others com
petent to Judge, it was found to be un
important. The Mayor and members of the bridge
committee will make an inspection of the
abutment tomorrow morning, and will
make a special effort to determine what,
if any. material effect the crack has on
the bridge. The engineers. Including Mr.
Taylor, declare that It has none: that the
bridge rests on th piers and that if the
abutment were to be taken away alto
gether It would In no wise affect the
safety of the bridge. The concrete was
put in to steady the big dirt nil at the
end of the structure.
TALKS OF BANK EMPLOYES
Mills Says Courtesy and Diligence
Are First Requirements.
In an address latit nght before the
Portland Chapter, American Institute of
Bank Men, President A. I Mills, of the
First National Bank, gave the qualifica
tions he considered essential for a suc
cessful bank employe. The qualities
most to be desired, Mr. Mills declared,
were courtesy and diligence.
' "In discussing a clerk's requirements
you would probably say that he ought
to have honesty and brains," said Mr.
Milia. "That is not the case, because
any man who is taken Into a bank Is as
sumed to be honest and is expected to
have brains enough to do his work in
a satisfactory manner. The two great
requirements are courtesy and. diligence.
Granted, that all banks are equally sound,
the bank that treats its customers with
the greatest courtesy is the one that will
rank first with the public. Courtesy
ought to be a characteristic of every
member of the staff.. The employe who
can satisfy an irritable patron of the
bank, without himself losing his temper
is the man who is of greatest value to
"A clerk ought not to be satisfied to
do just his own work. By that I do not
rr.e&n that h$ should let others Impose
on htm; but he should learn how to do
the work of the man above hini. The
young man never can tell when a more
responsible position will come his way."
