aa tbe sense of those present that

that they will work to that en, with
view to having seven commissioners,

Wcrk-in A No Favor Plan.
CH v Treasurer Werleln. who, while a
candidate for the Republican nomina-
Ion for alayor In the primaries lasi
May. declared himself as satisfied with
the present charter, last night saia mat
he had found that the reople want a
complete change. He aald that, since
he discovered tsla to be the wisn ot
he people, he Is strongly In favor or
drawing up tbe best possible charter
nd submitting It for their approval.
Because only 10 of the la members
Were present last night. President
Bronauch waa unable to name tne
member of the varloua committees.
W. li. Paly. D. O. IJvely. H. W. Fries.
Gay Lombard and Dr. Andrew C. Smith
were -absent. Mr. Fries has signified
his intention of resigning, as he Is not
In favor of a commission plan. It waa
announced. Whether Mr. Daiy will
serve, has not been announced as noth
ing hs been heard from him since his
appontment. . Dr. Smith, Mr. Lombard
and . Mr. IJvely were not present De
cause of press of business or absence
from the city, but It la understood all
Sewn Tctnrlmcii( in Plan.
The plan around which the commit"
teo will probably build the proposed
charter was Introduced by Mr. Wood
ward, t'ndtr thle plan the city Is di
vided into seven departments, with the
Mayor and Commissioners each at the
head of one. The Mayor has charge
ot finance and accounta; one Commis
sioner has charge of parks, public
property and nccounts: others for
water, fire, streets, sewers and re
pairs, police and public safety, health
and public oharaties and publio util
ities, docks. and harbor business.
This plan was substituted for one
proposed last week by Mr. Werleln,
having five Commissioners around
whom to work. Mr.. Woodward. In ex
plaining his views on the subject, said
that Portland Is the largest corpora
tion which has seriously considered the
commission-government plan In this
country; -that It .'Is too large to be
conducted by less than seven experts
and that he would favor that number
of Commissioners. The plaa was
adopted by unanimous vote.
A discussion arose over the legal
phraseology of the resolution calling
far the. submission of a charter, but
It was ;dedded that this will In no
way Interfere with the work of the
committee.' " ' The charter must be
amended, it was explained. Instead of
there-being submitted an entirely new
one. as the constltutloal amendment on
this subject gives no one or no set of
persons authority to submit an entirely
, Old Charter to Be Ba.se. '
Mr. Wolfe expressed the opinion that
the best way to proceed Is to take
tbe present charter and eliminate all
of Its bad features, after that taking
the good ones and incorporating them
Into the commission plan.
George B. Cellars, who has served
four years as a member of the City
Council under the present charter, said
that. In bis opinion, the committee
must decide upon whether it will make
JUe slayer and Commissioners the only
elective officers, or whether it will
have others, such as tbe Auditor, At
torney and Treaurer also elective. Mr.
Werleln brought tin the subject of the
civil service, aa to whether the com
mittee will Incorporate that Into the
charter, or whether It will eliminate
It and have a pure commission form.
This was laid over until such time as
the members have before them copies
of other charters, in the hands of Mr.
Wolfe, at which time they will be bet
ter Informed on these subjects. Mr
Wolfe has gathered these and has been
studying them. They give a great
deal of light from both sides of the
questions that will confront the com
mittee la Its work.
Comity Rule Pointed To.
Chairman Bronaugh expressed himself
as being unable to understand why
there Is so much distrust of municipal
officials and as to why people are so
skeptical about them, when the County
of Multnomah is run by a commission
consisting of three the County Court
and two Commissioners. It had been his
belief for years, he said, that the people
should trust their affairs to their munici
pal officials and trust them to co the
right thing. He was of that opinion
when a member of he committee draft
ing the present charter and he waa of
the same opinion now. he declared. If
the County Court Is empowered to levy
taxes without limit, why should the city
officials be limited, as they are. he asked.
The committee will meet next Tues
day night in the Mayor's committee
room at the City Hal L Then they will
probably take more definite steps. All
expressed the desire that their labors
should be such as will receive the ap
proval of the people, and they hoped
that their deliberations would get the
proper attention from the people apd
that their work would be followed In
a manner that will enable the voters
to act Intelligently on the charter to

EAST SIDE OFFERS BONUS
Theodore B. Wilcox Elected Clialr
man and Members Draw Dots
for Terms Secretary to
List Available Blocks.
Theodore B. Wilcox waa elected
chairman of the Public Anditroum
Commission, which halo Its first ses
sion at the City Hall at I:S0 o'elock
yesterday afternoon. W. I. Fenton
drew the five-year term. Dr. J. R.
Wetherbee the four-year term. Hugh
Hume the three-year -term. Mr. Wilcox
the two-year term and Phil Metschan,
Jr.. the one-year term.
While not committing themselves" as
to the location of tbe auditorium, the
members went on record as opposing
the purchase of any site. If there is a
piece of city property unincumbered
and with clear title. They Instructed
Deoutv City Auditor Wlegand, the sec-
jetary. to compile a list of available
city blocks. When these are submit
ted they will endeavor to select one
from the list. ' As to the title, this will
be referred to City Attorney Grant for
Act's Scrutiny. Asked.
After perfecting organization and
drawing lots as to the lengths of the
terms they shall serve, the members
of the Commission voted to refer to
the City Attorney the entire auditorium
act. for the purpose of ascertaining as
to whether it is absolutely valid, how
to proceed with the issuance and sale
of bonds and other features, of which
the members desire further Informa
tion. They want to b certain that
they are proceeding regularly and in
strict compliance with the law.
It waa agreed by unanimous voice of
the members that the Commission
should consider no private sites before
first ascertaining whether the city has
one that will suffice. Chairman Wil
cox and all of his associates expressed
themselves as of the Arm belief that
not one cent of the f (00,000 bond Issue
shall be expended for a site, unless it
shall develop that there Is no city
East Side Offers Bonus.
Mr. "Hume said that a committee
from the East Side called upon him and
asked as to the probable site and saTd
that the East Side would raise a bonus
of 1100.000 if the Commission would
place the auditorium there. He said
he told them to "show the 1100,000."
Chairman Wilcox said that he re
garded it as the duty, of the Commis
sion to select a block owned by the
city, if such is available. He said that,
in his opinion, nothing less than a
block should be considered.
As the Lincoln Hlg-h School block, at
Fourteenth and Morrison streets, can
not be had for at least two years, be
cause the Jloard of Education will need
it that long, that block is virtually
eliminated from further consideration.
The only entire block left is that
bounded by Second. Third, Market and
Clay streets, commonly known as the
"OM Market block." It Is regarded as
certain that this will be the location of
the auditorium, provided the members
of the Commission are satisfied that the
title is absolutely clear. This is the
place favored by Mayor Simon, who
named the Commissioners and who
called them together yesterday after
noon. ' Tbe Commissioners will await the fil
ing of an opinion as to the legal status
of the project, after which they will
meet at once and proceed. At the same
time, they will scrutinise the list of
city property to be submitted by Sec
retary Wlegand and will endeavor to
determine the location soon.
