Citizens Indorse Mayor's
Stand That Posters
" Should Be. Regulated.
PAY LITTLE FOR FRANCHISE
City Grts Only $300 Annual License
on Business Amounting to Tens
of Thousands of Dollars.
What the People Say.
Mayor Simon struck a not In public
sentiment that ran true when he made
the statement Thursday, in the course
of a trip of Inspection about the city,
that the unsightly billboards around
Portland should be more closely regu
lated and restricted.
Portlanders in jreneral and those in
terested in work along the lines of per
manent improvement and betterment
of the city in particular expressed
themselves yesterday as highly pleased
at the Mayor's attitude In recognizing:
an evil, previous attempts at regulat
ing which have been blocked princi
pally because of lack of official Inter
est or co-operation. Following the
Mayor's statement, a number of well
known and representative citizens were
asked by The Oregonian to give their
fair a"nd unprejudiced views of the mat- j
ter. expressions or approvai at Mr. i
mon's stand were unanimous, and those
Interviewed, In almost every Instance,
took pains to add that they would sup
port heartily any move he might make
toward regulating the billboards.
Inquiry at the City Auditor's office
yesterday disclosed the fact that Fos
ter & Kleiser, who control the bllJ
rostlng business in Portland, pay a
yearly license of only $400 for a priv
Jlege which practically amounts to an
exclusive franchise. A subsidiary con
cern of this company, the Oregon Dis
trlbuting and Advertising Company,
pays a further license of $100, bring
ing the total sum this company hand
ling tens of thousands of dollars of bill
posting annually pays to the city to
$500. Considering, among other things,
the fact that any concern In competi
tion with Foster & Kleiser could hope
only for a small share of local busi
ness, inasmuch as the former company
belongs to a National organization
which controls the business in every
large city, the license is held to be not
Major Asks Public Expressions.
Mayor Simon yesterday said that he
wished to know what public sentiment Is
In regard to regulating the billboards be
fore taking any definite step.
"I would be very glad to have the mat
ter agitated." said the Mayor. "I will be
pleased to hear and receive any sugges
tiona citizens may have to make. I would
like to hear especially from people with
artistic and esthetic ideas for the beauti
fying of the city as to how they feel
about regulating unsightly billboards.
"I have not thought out yet a plan for
such a regulation, but these suggestions
from the people themselves would be of
assistance to me. It Is my desire to play
fair with everybody. I don't wish to run
any concern out of business, or to treat it
in any way unfairly, but evidently some
regulation Is needed. In my judgment,
also, a license of $400 a year Is decidedly
too low. That Is another phase or the
problem that should come in for regula
Especially significant as Indicating
how truly Mr. Simon Is succeeding in
finding the real wishes of the people In
matters of public interest and of the
interest that has been aroused by his
proposal to regulate the billboards is
the fact that even his political oppo
nents at the recent election are lining
up on his side and expressing their ap
proval of his attitude. Though he
worked against Mr. Simon to the best
of his ability at the election. Thomas
McCusker. ex-president of the Civic
Improvement League, said:
"I wish to compliment the Mayor on
the position he has taken. I think all
good citizens should back him up. Per
sonally I am opposed to any billboards
at all. but as they have been permit
ted to exist. I think they should be reg
ulated so as not to exceed six feet in
height, and all 'two-story hoards
should be prohibited. And near street
car or railway crossings they should
not be so high that people In vehicles
cannot look over them to see if trains
"There should be a restricted district
for billboards. I would rather see them
in the business portion of the city than
the residence port ion. because we hare
here the most beautiful city In the
Vnlted States some say In the world
and we cannot tolerate what tends to
detrov Its natural beauty. Good rents
are paid for the billboards in some places,
but if the Assessor" should place these
rents In the valuation of the property, it
would soon stop the billboards. I believe
that the be.st way to regulate the problem
would be to keep them to not over 6 feet
high, and to tax them according to the
square feet of space In the boards. If we
must stand for this nuisance, the city
should be paid for It."
Gruber Condemns Nuisance.
"I will condemn the billboards In the
strongest of language." said S. H. Gru
ber. chairman of the municipal committee
of the Chamber of Commerce. "They
certainly should not be allowed In the
business or residence section, but should
have to go way out In the subxirbs or
country If they must be tolerated. I
aree with the Mayor that the nuisance
should be regulated. I should like to see
thorn abolished altogether, myself. This,
I think could be done by levying an oc
cupation tax. I see no necessity for the
billboards whatever. They are an eye
sore ajid destroy the beauty of the city.
"The billboard men should at least be
compelled to clean up waste paper after
they have pasted up new bills. For in
stance, on Twenty-first street, between
Irving and Johnson, there is a billboard
at least loft feet long and 10 feet hfgh.
The sidewaJk in front of it Is usually Ut
tered up with a mess of papers torn down
and left there by the posters. It Is out
rageous the way the billboards are tol
erated at present. Some of the signs are
absolutely disgusting: not immoral, per
haps, but clse to it."
Women Would Eliminate Them.
"I should say I do think the billboards
should be regulated."' said Mrs. G. M.
Glines. president of the Portland Wo
man's club. All the women. I think, are
In favor of eliminating them. They are
a bar on the landscape and they mar the
beAutr of our city. For years I have
thought they ought to be forbidden al
together or at least in the main sec
tion." "The billboards are an eyesore, a
nuisance, and a disgrace to the city."
said W J. Burns, of the grain stand
ard committee of the Chamber of Com
merce. "They should not be tolerated.
Public sentiment is the best way to
: regulate the nuisance. People should
make up their minds not to patronize
those who advertise on the billboards.
They could be boycotted out of exist-'
"I think decidedly that the billboards
should be regulated and restricted,"
said F. E. Beach, of the civic improve
ment committee of the Chamber of
Commerce. '"There should be a reduc
tion in their size and glaringness
that's the only word I can think of
just now to express it. If I had my
own -n-n v nhmtt it T should like to 8G
i them nrnhihitpH nltnsrether. Bv means
of high license or ordinance they
should at loast be absolutely prohibited
In the residence section. Down town
and in the extreme suburbs they are
not so objectionable, though they give
such an unpleasant effect that I should
like to have them abolished entirely."
"Question of Beauty Richardson.
"The ambition of Portland, the Rose
City, is to be looked upon as the most
beautiful city in the country." sid Sec
retary Tom Richardson, of the Commer
cial Club. "By travelers it is given that
high position, and many recognize it as
the most beautiful city in America. Port
land's beauty is built upon the same prin
ciple as underlies the beauty of the rose,
the perfection of the flower world, and
It Is on such lines that her building and
development ehould be carried on. Now
the question is whether such things as
unsightly billboards help or hinder such
an aim? Whether they add to the nat
ural beauty of the city, or detract from
it? Does the traveler think some other
city more beautiful for Its billboards?
The whole problem might be looked at
and met from an artistic point of view."
"With Mrs. M. E. ShafTord, I instituted
the first campaign against the billboards
back in 11." eaid George M. Hyland, or
ganizer and former president of the civic
improvement league. "We succeeded then
In driving the billboards back from the
center of town, and we tried to put them
out of business altogether by, means of
a he a vy occ upation tax. However we
ran out of money and ran into legal
obstacles and had to drop the work. I
believe that an occupation tax could be
gotten through now, regulating and tax
ing billboards by the square foot, their
amount of surface, or the revenue
derived from them. It could be put so
high, that the boards couldn't exist.
Such an occupation tax has been held
"These billboards are an eyesore and
their moral tendencies are not of the
best. I thought so when I first took
up the work against them, and I haven't
noticed any great Improvement."
"My views about billboards differ
from those of most people," said Frank
B. Gibson, ex-president of the Civic
Improvement League. "I believe they
are a necessity, in this advertising age,
and that they serve to hide many un
sightly spots and rubbish heaps that
otherwise would be exposed to public
view, much to the detriment of the
city. However, I think they should be
regulated. There should be certain re
strictions as to their height, and they
should be under police surveillance.
Thus any signs that were objectionable
or could easily be made so, could be

Exporters Receive No Answer
CONTRACTS NOT SIGNED
Open Shop May Result and Wage
Set at 30 Cents an Hour Unless
Union Makes Move Answer
of Dock Men Now Overdue.
Members of Grain Handler Union,
Local No. 4. failed to sign up for the
coming season with exporters yesterday
on a basis of 35 cents an hour, as was
paid during: last year. The contract be
tween the exporters and the union ex
pired in April, and since that time there
has been no wheat to handle and the
matter was allowed to lapse. Two weeks
ago the exporters took the matter up
with the union and it was agreed that an
answer would be filed by the union yes
terday. It was not.
Unless the matter Is settled within a
few. days, it Is probable the exporters
will declare for open shop and the wage
scale set at 30 cents an hour. Members
of the local union are now receiving 35
cents an hour under the old contract and
exporters are willing to sign for the sea
son of 1909-10 at the same rate. Union
leaders are evidently, sparring for time

and desire to wait until ships line up and

all vessels headed for this port have a
Puget Sound option and can be sent there
in case of necessity.
In all Puget Sound ports the open shop
prevails and the wage scale is 30 cents.
The union is not recognized. Portland
shippers recognize a union and the wage
scale Is five cents higher than on the
Sound. The trouble with the grain hand
lers Is ysn annual affair, but unless an
agreement is reached soon, the exporters
will make a decided stand.
In case of trouble with the grain hand
lers, the contract between the stevedores
and longshoremen will become void and
it will be up to the stevedoring firms to
declare open shop with the exporters.
Longshoremen in Portland are now re
ceiving 55 cents an hour straight time
and 82H cents an hour overtime. Open
shop would reduce the scale to 50 cents
straight time and 75 cents overtime.

HARDY PEOPLE FOR ALASKA
Norwegians Pleased With Proposal
to Colonize in North.
SEATTLE, Aug. 6. Norwegian Con
sul Thomas H. Kolderup said today
that he Is in full sympathy with the
enterprise of Captain J. Mikkolborjs,
now at Cordova, Alaska, to colonize
Alaska with Norwegians. Consul Kol
derup said: .
"The idea Is to prepare the way for
regular communication and , transpor
tation for both passengers and freight
from Norway to Alaska. At present
there is a railroad built by the Rus
sian Government across the country to
Vladivostock, but there are no regular
steamships running across Bering sea.
"The climate of Alaska will permit
of farming in most of the valleys, and
the mineral resources of the terri
tory are very great. Most of the great
fortunes made in the gold regions of
the North have been taken out by
Scandinavians, who endure the clim
ate . well. The project of colonizing
Alaska with Scandinavians has been
under consideration for years."

THE WORK OF A SPECIALIST
DOING OF A FEW THINGS
There Is not a physician living- who can
claim to be proficient in the treatment of all
human ailments and diseases. To attain the
highest possible degree of proficiency In all
departments of medical science would require
half a dozen lifetimes of study and as many
more of practical experience. The regular prac
titioner is proficient in a large number of the
commonest and moat easily conquered diseases.
The specialist must first become proficient for
general practice, and most then go on to pro
ficiency in a few of those conditions and dis
eases more difficult ta understand and more
difficult to cure.
Pay Me When I
Functional weakness In men Is
In reality a comparatively simple
ailment, and Is but a symptom of
local disorder, a vtate of chronic
Inflammation of the prostate
Kland. No stimulating treatment,
whether Internal or locally ap
plied can do more than excite tem
porary activity. By my sytem of
local treatment I restore absolute
ly normal conditions throughout
the organs involved, which prompt
ly results in complete and per
manent restoration of itren glh.
This treatment is original
with me and Is the only radical and
certain cure yet devised.
Varicose Veins is a relaxation,
knotting: and twisting; of the most
vital blood vessels of the organic
system. It stagnates the local cir
culation and Interferes with the
&rocesses of waste and repair,
eglect brings derangement of
functions and injury to the general
health. I cure varicose veins in
one week without pain or deten
I state nothing in my announcements but the straight, square truth.
It will cost you nothing to call and talk over your case. Tou can find
out all about your trouble and you can later arrange to begin treatment
any time you ilka. My offices, comprising 10 rooms, are the largest,
most elegant and best equipped in the West.
