last few years have been neglected,
causing an order for the condemnation
and removal of the building.
The name of the purchaser is with

Increase in price in the property in that
time is in accord with the general rise
in values all over the district south of
Morrison street, and in fact all over
the business district of the city.
The southwest corner of Fifth and
Couch streets, it is reported, has been
sold to Edward Campbell, a wealthy
resident of Southern California, by Mrs.
Clara E. Morey, of Oregon City, for

two-story frame building known as the
I'ncle Sam Hotel. The new owner
plans the erection of a substantial
business building there.

the market a syndicate organized by
the Spanton Company has purchased a
34-acre tract adjoining "Council Crest
Park on the south. The property was
bought from John P. Sharkey and N.
A. Henderson for $35,000. They pur

Articles of Incorporation were filed
yesterday for the Heights Trust Com
pany by members of the Kings Heights
and Melinda Heights syndicates for the
-purpose of furnishing car service to
these tracts. Dr. J. R. Wetherbee,
Dorr E. Keasey and J. R. Spencer are
the incorporators. Arrangements have
already been made with the Portland
Railway. Light & Power Company to
furnish the service when the tracks
have been laid. The company will
proceed with the track-laying as soon
as the necessary franchise is obtained.
A year ago this Improvement was un
dertaken and a franchise was granted
by the County Court, but since that
time the road on (Upper Washington

CITY SAVES THOUSANDS
Through Ordinance's Veto, Abstract
Cuts Bid for Printing.
Thousands of dollars have been
saved to the taxpayers of the city
through the Mayor's veto of the ordi
nance awarding to the Portland Daily

one year. Yesterday afternoon bids
were opened for this work, and the
Abstract was found by the committee
on accounts and current expenses to

were then called for, with the results
The bid of the Abstract was a great
surprise. It was accompanied by a

Vnder the terms of the ordinance, he
must supply a copy of the paper to
each property owner affected by an
official notice Inserted in the Abstract
during the year. Under the charter the
Council Is obliged to designate some
newspaper as city official paper each

Messrs. I'Rrn, Wood t al.; I have the

Having ben a voter for 53 year and !n

would not approve tne direct primary and

That we are too much- governed and that

and uninformed multitude is an absurdity.
It Is In conflict with our fundamental the

and Improve the judiciary. But I note that
none of the learned Thebans who signed the
circular propose to discontinue the election

What remedy do you propose for that? If
I understand the purpose of your circular,
it Is to ascertain if the men of Oregon are
not ready to form a new party. Undoubt
edly many have & suspicion that the old
parties have outlived their usefulness. Many
more probably hold that it is better to have
off with the old love before we have on
with the new.
From youth to age I have been a Repub

to be well secured. I am ready to join
a new party if I can be assured that the
rights of things can be better secured by a
new organization. By this is meant that X
favor a fairer distribution of wealth, with a
due regard to the security of vested rights.
But why may we not have reform within
party lines? As I understand, the Insurgent
Republicans hold that one class of men
should not be taxed for the benefit of an
other class, or one class of interests con
served at the expense of the general good.
As a party of moral ideas, the Republican
party should hold this as a cardinal virtue
and the opposite as one of the deadly sin.
Will the Democratic party stand for this?
If neither party can be trusted, can we
form a new combination out of insurgent
Republicans and reconstruct the Democrats?
Will our reformers give up their political
fads and barren idealities?
There has never been a successful party
of reform which did not make its appeal on
a single well understood issue. This brings
us to the question whether we had not
better bear the Ills we have than fly to
others we know not of. This reminds us
of the man from whom one devil was cast

possessed by seven other devils, and then
the state of that man was worse than the
first. Now let us ask our guides, philoso

PIPE RIVALRY IMMINENT
NEW SPECIFICATION'S MAY
Glazed Cement Company Entering
Field May End Monopoly
Council to Act Today.
A sensation will be sprung in the City
Council thia moming, when open speci
fications for sewer pipe will be Intro
duced, making It possible for competition
to prevail in Portland In this line or
business. ' " -
At present the field is occupied by one
company, but if the Council follows the
wishes of Mayor Simon it will approve
s peel tlcat Ions passed by City Engineer
.Morris end will thus make Portland an
opea market for all kinds of sewer pipe.
If the City Council approves these
specifications, a glazed cement company
will be enabled to introduce Its product
into this market in open competition
with the other material, which has, until
this Ume, enjoyed a monopoly, according
to Mayor Simon and others in official
dom. The new company located at Ken
ton has its plant almost ready for opera
tion. Owing to the fact that there his until
now existed a combine in this material,
say city officials, the prices have been
made very high, and there has long
exls-ted a strong demand for competition.
Several months ago, it was intimated
that a comjeting " firm was about to
locate here, end Mayor Simon's attention
was called to It by representatives of
one of the new tracts. The Mayor gave
it every encouragement.
When the specifications, approved by
City Engineer Morris, are introduced toe
fore the Council this morning. It will
open the fight for cheaper sewer pipe In
Portland, according to officials who are
interested in having eompetitfon.
Whether the Council will have any
hesitancy In approving the specifications
will be known when the subject comes
up this morning. It Is believed, how
ever, that the approval will be forth
coming at once, although the Council
men may desire to see further proof as
to the durability of the article about to
be Introduced. It is said that the prod
uct has had good results wherever used.
As there are at this time sewer sys
tems In contemplation and ?n course of
construction throughout the city, ag
gregating enormous sums of money, the
entrance Into the field of a competing
company will mean the caving of large
amounts to the property owners, accord
ing to statements of those who have
Investigated. That there .will be a
prompt reduction In sewer pipe is pre
dicted In official circles.

SIMON TO URGE POLICE
If Ordinance Ordering Complete

Passed, Present Law 'Will
Be Enforced Strictly.
Custom is going to cut a strong figure
in Mayor Simon's effort to secure for
Portland a sane Fourth of July celebra
tion this year. This is indicated in a
number of interviews with members of
the City Council, who have largely the
control of the subject by reason of their
legislative powers. The habit of ex
ploding firecrackers, which has pre
vailed so long, seems difficult to over- !
come, even though it is admitted by all
that the toll is terrible m life, limb and
However, it seems assured that there
will be a material improvement, even
should the efforts of the Mayor fail of
absolute success. He declared yester
day that he will order the police to cur

fireworks possible. If the Council de

long as four inches. t
Complete Ban 'Wanted.
"I sincerely hope the Council will for
bid the sale of any kind of fireworks to
be used in connection with Fourth of
July celebration," said Mayor Simon,
"but if this is not done, I will guarantee
to curtail much of the noise and ex
plosion of dangerous crackers through
the police force. I will instruct the Chief
to enforce rigidly the ordinance pro
hibiting certain exceptionally dangerous
firecrackers and to suppress as much
noise as is possible."
Mayor Simon was beseiged by merch
ants who wish to sell their usual amount
of fireworks this season. Yesterday sev
eral sought to change the Mayor's atti
tude, but he declined to be swerved
Among those who protested to the Mayor
was Andrew Kan. who said that he had
already ordered his treason's supply, and
would be ruined should the Council re
fuse to permit their sale here.
Georgs Xt Baker, president of the City
Council, favors the plan to eliminate
fireworks from the Fourth of July cele
bration. He said:
Baker Wants Sane Pourth.
"While I dislike to take away any en
joyment of the young. I feel that some
thing must be done to protect children
and others from the results attending
these celebrations. I will support the
Mayor in his effort along this line."
Other Councilmen spoke as follows:
Councilman Belding I am strongly in
favor of trying a sane Fourth. I be

is too great to be continued longer, and

Too Commonly Used.

Ever read tli above lerterf A new
one appears from time to time. They
are s;fmxinev true, and full of banian
to eliminate all kinds of fireworks from
this year's celebration. There are plenty
of ways to celebrate without explosives,
which do not. In my opinion, show any
patriotism, although there is no denying
the fact that millions of people who do
explode them are genuinely patriotic. It
is the awful results that attend these
celebrations that have caused me to con

Councilman Cellars I will Investigate
to ascertain to what, if any, extent the
damage wrought is due to the smaller
kinds of 1 re works now permitted to be
sold under the ordinance. I hate to say
I favor absolute elimination of firecrack
ers, as the children look forward to some
fun each year with these explosives; but,
if upon investigation, I find that the
damage comes also from the milder
forms. I shall support the movement to
cut out all of the fireworks. .
Councilman Eunning I believe the
time has come when something must be
done to decrease the deaths and the In
juries of Fourth of July celebrations. I
think 1 shall favor the ane celebration
Councilman Menefee I hardly like to
pee all of the fireworks done away with.
It seems hardly neceseary to do this, al
though it has to be admitted that much
harm comes from celebrations such as
the country has had all these years. I
am not enthusiastic over the "sane"
idea, but I would not fight against it
mveh, if I am convinced that the public
would get along as well without the
firecrackers, which the young folks like

Councilman Kubli I do not favor cut
ting out the fireworks on the Fourth. I
have always had firecrackers when a
boy, aud I always take home a lot of
them for my children, who find much en
joyment In them. I know there is much
harm by accidents, but it seems to me
the game is worth It.
Councilman Rushlight I disagree witn
the Mayor on this subject. I think it is
all right as It is. Let the "kids' nave
their firecrackers; it instills patriotiym
in them, and I think there is too little
of this now. I am not m favor ot
changing the ordinance to prohibit the
sale of all these things, as suggested by
the Myor. It is the best way to teach
the children to know tnat we are cele
brating the Declaration of Independence.
