MAYOR WILL VETO
DOCK-BOND SALE
Council Votes to Raise Fund of
$500,000, but Simon De
clares Action Untimely.
METHOD ALSO QUESTIONED
Executive Thinks Amount Too Small
to Start With, and Cites Fact That
Xo Definite ILans Have as
Yet Been Outlined.
Mayor Simon will veto the ordinance
bassed by a vote of eight to six in the
pity Council, authorizing the sale of $500,-
XX) public dock bonds. After a lone oar
tiamentary squabble, in which advocates
pf the ordinance out-voted all motions of
the opposition to delay passage yesterday
morning, the Council balloted, -Baker,
Etelding, Cellars, JEllis, Wallace and
Wat kins voting against the measure and
Concannon, Devlin, Driscoll, Dunning,
Kubli, Lombard, Menefee and Rushlight
toting for it. Annand was absent.
Mr. Driscoll, chairman of the committee
Cm commerce, landings and wharves, led
the fight for the sale of the bonds and
Messrs. Baker and Belding headed the
opposition. Mr. Belding sought to secure
special committee to which to refer the
Subject for consideration as to a dock
Bite before authorizing the sale, but this
met defeat. Mr. Baker wanted to refer
the ordinance to the City Attorney, but
be was likewise outvoted.
Mayor Gives Reasons.
"Remember the big stick was Mr.
Baker's remark to the ordinance promo
ters just before Mayor Simon called for
the vote. There was a general laugh.
The ballot was cast with the result
Stated.
"I will certainly .veto the dock ordi
nance," said Mayor Simon, following the
Council meeting. My reasons are that
it is an inopportune time to sell bonds,
even were it deemed advisable to sell
them for the purpose of public docks.
tt"he bond market is exceedingly dull now
and -probably will be for some months
yet. I also oppose the sale of these bonds
on the ground that $500,000 is not enough
with which to start a system of public
, flocks, if such a system Is decided upon
by the people after the subject is fully
presented to them later. It will require
rot less than $5,000,000, and that will
inerely start the project.
"'Furthermore, continued the Mayor,
the Council has not determined how it
will expend this sum of money; no site
has been as much as looked at and no
one, so far as I can learn, has any idea
Df where the city would purchase, if at
all. This I do not consider to be a good
business way to go about a vast project
like this, and I shall never give my con
tent to such a procedure.
Money Would Lie Idle.
"I am not now discussing the question
pf whether public docks are proper for
Portland, but am basing my stand on
the ground that we have not enough
money and that we have laid no plans
for acquiring any property. It is posi
tively certain that the city cannot make
any sort of a start on public dock sys
tem with so small a sum as $500,000. If
we should sell the bonds, we would
pimply have to place the money In the
treasury and pay interest on It."
Mayor Simon's veto of the ordinance, it
Is generally believed, will settle the ques
tion. It requires ten votes to pass an
ordinance over his objection, and as the
Issue stood yesterday the members favor
ing the sale of the bonds numbered eight;
pix voted against the ordinance; one was
absent. It Is understood that Mr.
Annand, when he returns, will vote with
the eight for the sale of bonds. This
leaves the Council divided six to nine,
lacking one vote of enough to carry the
ordinance over the veto.

YOUNG MAN GETS ADVICE
"DON'T MAKE COMPROMISE
AVITH GIRIi YOU COURT."
Evangelist Hart Tells Youth of To
day He Must Have "Backbone
to Do Right. "
Cottage prayer meetings and personal
work was the subject of the addresses of
Evangelist 'Hart yesterday afternoon and
last night at Hawthorne Park tabernacle.
Rev. R. 9. Showers has charge of the
cottage prayer meetings, which will be
kept up every morning at the homes of
people who have sent in their names to
Rev. Mr. Showers and who have opened
their homes for that purpose.
Rev. Mr. Hart made a stirr:n? appeal
yesterday afternoon to a large audience
for personal work. He said:
"Christ was more than a teachar. He
pointed out the way of salvation. He
made us, not instruments, but agents and
ambassadors, drummers is a better word,
to win people from their sins. How can
you do this? I don't know. Just begin.
There are some great laymen, men of
brains and great wealth, who are doing
personal work, and hence it is not only
the preacher and the starving, poor Indi
vidual who does work for God. John
Wanamaker was a great personal worker.
"A young man once told me that t"e
young woman he was courting said she
agreed to attend the, meeting of the
Christian Endeavor Society if lie would
take her to the theater. I told him
never to make such a compromise. Men,
you must have backbone to do right.
Some men put their light under a bushel,
but it is a poor light anyway. You must
persevere and do personal work. We
want no sluggards around here."
Last night before the general meeting
at the tabernacle outdoor meetings were
held at Grand - and -Hawthorne avenues
and at Union avenue and East Burnside
street, where invitations were extended
to the public to come to the tabernacle.
Already thousands of tickets have been
distributed for the men's meeting next
Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock in the
tabernacle. Tonight Evangelist Hart
will deliver his address on "The Dance
and Cards." and will pay his respects to
tho theater. This morning and every
morning of meetings between 10 and 10:30
o'clock cottage prayer meetings will be
held at the following places:

RIVER-MAY-BE LINE
Ordinance Would Bring Docks
Within Fire Limits.
LIQUOR BILL IS HELD UP
Measure Striking at Brewers Sent to
Committee Engineer Ordered to
Estimate Cost -of Steel Bridge .
In South End.
Councilman Belding yesterday morn
ing introduced before the City Council
an ordinance extending the fire limits
to the harbor line on the Willamette
River. Mayor Simon referred it to the
committee on health and police, where
it will have consideration next week.
This is certain to meet with much op
position, as it will eventually make
necessary the construction of fire
proof docks and buildings along the
waterfront.
The Council sustained Mayor Simon's
veto of the ordinance granting to the
Portland Railway, Light & Power Com
pany a permit to erect a fuel-oil tank
in the central East Side district. The
measure contained no clause giving the
Council the right to revoke the permit
at its pleasure. The veto of a special
ordinance giving an agent a right to
sell photographs without payment of a
license fee was also sustained.
City Dairies Opposed.
Councilman Ellis introduced a meas
ure calculated to make it impossible
for dairymen' to operate inside the city
limits insofar as their herds are con
cerned. The principal feature of the
ordinance is that it prohibits people
from having more than one cow in their
yard. It was referred to a committee.
Councilman Cellars protested against
the appointment of several boards of
viewers on street extensions and ob
jected to the passage of one ordinance,
carrying viewers. He declared that a
majority or! these proposed openings or
extensions" never materia" ize and that
the city is therefore made to foot the
heavy bills.
Several of the Councilmen took ex
ceptions to the attitude of Mr. Cellars,
saying that it is necessary to have reso
lutions for street openings, as, they as
serted, many people whose property is
affected always protest against pro
ceedings to open streets because of the
expense. These members maintained
that, unless the Council adopts these
resolutions', not waiting for petitions,
the city will be held back in its devel
opment. Baker Blocks Measure.
Objection by Councilman Baker to
the passage of Mr. Cellars' proposed
recodifying ordinance on the liquor
traffic caused that measure to be re
ferred to the liquor-license committee.
It combines the provisions of 13 ordi
nances and provides a clause eliminat
ing power of attorney, this feature be
ing a blow at the brewers.
An ordinance extending the time of
the Western Union Telegraph Company
to June 1 on its electric-wiring projects,
was passed.
Councilman Rushlight's ordinance,
prohibiting boys under 18 years' of age
driving wagons in the city, was de
feated, after several attempts to amend
it as to the age limit.
Upon motion of Councilman Watkins,
Mayor Simon appointed Watkins, Beld
ing and Cellars' to investigate the con
dition of the franchise for the market
block at Third and Market streets. The
committee will make a report to the
Council.
Mr. Rushlight's resolution, instruct
ing the City Engineer to report on the
cost of a steel bridge across the Wil
lamette River at or near Umatilla or
Douglas streets on the East Side and
calling for a report as to the best
place for a western approach for the
same, was carried.
PARSONAGE J0BE OPENED

HOUGHTON TO EAT TODAY
After Kast of 0 Days He Feels
Weak, but Xot Hunjry.
A. S. Houghton, who has. gone with
out food for 20 days, expects to break
his long fast today.
He lost two pounds in weight between
Tuesday and "Wednesday evenings, and
says that he feels himself growing
weaker each day. He is now down to 135
pounds In weight, -just 19 pounds lighter
than when he began his long fast nearly
three weeks ago.
"My appetite has not returned,' he said
last night, "and I have concluded to wait
no longer and will probably begin taking
a little orange juice tomorrow. After a
few days I will commence on a. milk diet
and -will gradually increase this each day
until I have gained my normal appe
tite." Mr. Houghton walked to work yester
day, although he appeared weak and un
steady on his feet. His face is pale and
drawn and he resembles a man who has
been, through a hard spell of sickness,
although he maintains that he is feeling
well, aside from an occasional attack of
dizziness.
WATER WINGS DON'T WORK
Man Almost Drowns in Swimming
Tank When They Fail.
Depending on "water wlniers" for his
support. B. F. Krouse, one of the dorm
itory men at the Portland Young'
Men's Christian Association. had a
narrow escape from drowning' in the
association swimming tank yesterday
afternoon. If It had not been for the
prompt action of W. A. Hammond, one
of the employes, and two visitors, he
would probably have perished.
Krouse. who is unable to swim, put
on the "water wings" and jumped Into
the tank at a time when there was no
one else present. Instead of entering
where the water Is shallow, he plunged
in where it Is nine feet deep. He had
the "water wings" around his waist,
but they failed to support him and
he slipped them up under his arms,
finally grasping them with one hand
as he yelled for help. His cries were
heard by Hammond and the visitors,
who happened to be in a nearby room,
and they rushed to the tank and pulled
Krouse to safety.
This Is the first time that any one
has been In. the slightest danger in
the association tank, and Krouse's pre
dicament is regarded as entirely due
to his own carelessness. There are
always expert swimmers at hand dur
ing the regular swimming periods and
any accident at those times would be
Impossible. Scores of young boys aie
taught to swim In the association tank
every month, arid every precaution is
taken to afford them perfect safety.
"SPITE STABLE" STANDS
I KATE XEIGHBOR LOSES CASE
AGAIXST E. J. GRAHS.
law That Prohibits Keeping of
Horse Near Dwelling Found to
Exempt This Case.
"I have no use for a man who acts as
Grahs has acted, but the law is plain and
I must dismiss the prosecution," said
Municipal Judge Bennett in passing upon
the "spite fence" case brought by G. H.
Strout against B. J. Grahs, his next-door
neighbor on Victoria street.
Gr.ans escapes the penalty for keeping
a horse within 15 feet of a dwelling by a
peculiar turn of the law. Had he been
prosecuted a year ago the charge against
him on the evidence adduced yesterday
would have held, but shortly after he be
gan keeping his horse under Mr. Strout's
windows the ordinance -which, he was vio
lating was repealed and another was
passed, which excepted ail buildings in
use as stables at the time of its passage.
The trouble between Grahs and the
Strouts dates back three years. The
Strouts charge that Grahs encroached
upon their "lot and that they bought 16
feet from him at an exorbitant price in
order to end the bickering. Grahs says
it was part of the agreement that no
building should be erected on the 15-foot
strip and that when the Strouts built an
addition to their residence on it he
erected a high fence and later moved an
old stable up to the street line and began
keeping his horse In It. Complaints from
the neighbors compelled him to establish
sanitary plumbing and provide an air
tight box for the stable refuse, but the
Strouts still complain that the place is
offensive.
Grahs was made to appear to poor ad
vantage in the trial of the case. While
the letter of the law Is with him, ac
cording to Judge Bennett's decision, it
was plain that the sympathies of the
court were with the other side", and Dep
uty City Attorney Sullivan dealt severely
with the defendant- when he was on the
stand. "The only thing people with such
a neighbor as this man can do is move,"
sajd Mr. Sullivan.
It Is probable that other steps will be
taken to get rid of the offensive building.
