turned yesterday en route to Eugene.
"Ours was the only non-lrrlgatlon
display for homeseekers." Mr. Freeman
added, "and, aa wa occupied the largest

to a single district, visitors to the

FUEL OIL EXCEPTED
New Measure to Exclude Only
Explosives From City.
COMMITTEE HEARS PLEA
Proposed Ordinance Forbidding
Storage Tanks Within Limits la
Laid on Tables Railroads
and Others Appeal.
Following a general demand of per
sons and Interests favoring the stor
age of oil In the city and of persona
demanding that storage tanks be re
stricted to districts ' beyond tha city
limits, the City Attorney will draft a
new measure with the assistance of
Fire Chief Dowell. drawing lines be
tween fuel oil and explosive oils.
' The oil controversy came to a head
yesterday at a meeting of the health
and police committee of the City Coun
cil attended by representatives of rail
way companies, buildings, oil compan
ies and other citizens. Lively talks for
and against the oil tanks caused the
committee to lay the proposed ordi
nance restricting oil-storage tanks
from the city on the table and to In
struct the City Attorney to draft a new
ordinance on lines assuring safety to
life and property.
Railroads Make Plea.
The decision of the committee was
preceded by spirited addresses. Attor
ney A. C Spencer, of the O.-W. R. &
N. Company, declared that an ordl
nanoe making impossible the storage
of fuel within the city limits would
work a greater hardship on the rail
way companlee which have oil-burning
engines. He declared the tanks at Al
bina are built of steel and concrete and
are In an Isolated section of the city
and endanger neither life nor property.
He said the same conditions apply to
tbe Southern Pacific tanks at Brooklyn.
L L. White appeared In behalf of
several local buildings which have oil
burning heating plants, declaring that
to prohibit the storage of fuel oil in
those buildings would work a great
hardship and' necessitate the 'use of
sawdust and slabwood which would be
much more dangerous than olL
South Portland Afraid. .'
V. K. Strode and 3. G. Heltkemper
spoke In behalf of the residents of
South Portland, declaring that the
tanks as proposed there would greatly
dopreclate the value of property and
be dangerous to the neighborhood. Mr.
Strode said South Portland residents
were greatly aroused over the proposed
oil tanks and would fight them "to the
bitter end." Both speakers were ap
plauded by a crowd of men and women
which completely filled the Council
W. R. Roberts, representing Insurance
companies, said that a line should ba
drawn between fuel oil and explosive
"The system of fuel-oil storage," said
Mr. Roberts. "Is absolutely safe. Thla
class of oils Is stored here under con
ditions the same as In San Francisco
and other cities. The tanka in San
Francisco went through the disaster
without a single explosion. As a mat
ter of fact fuel oil Is not an explosive."
The ordinance as proposed was or
dered placed on file and a new ordi
nance was asked of the City Attorney
to be presented before the City Council

Each man who attempted to interfere
with him was discharged on the spot.
and an Imaginary list of new bands was

To back his assertions as to nis finan

form, which waa taken away irom mm

to be a purported message from Rocke

himself, had forgotten to' make any
