' At a special meeting of the City
Council yesterday proposed franchise
grants to the Southern Pacific on
Fourth street and to the Hill lines on
the East Side were brought up to a
point where final adoption or rejec
tion by the Council is all that remains
to be done. Members of the Coun
cil spent the entire day going into the
details of the provisions of the two
important measures and by vote estab
lished the provisions of the two meas
ures as they are to come before the
Council for final vote. The various
parts of the franchises were settled
only after bitter fights between Coun
cilmen and Councllmanlc factions.
The meeting resulted in sending the
Fourth-street and East Side franchises
to the Auditor for advertising. This
is the last action before final vote. The
proposed Heusner Interurban electric
franchise, the proposed Portland Rail
way, Light & Power Company general
franchise, the proposed Southern Pa
cific Jefferson-street franchise and the
proposed Heillg-Dickinson Seventh
street franchise were all sent by the
Council to the City Attorney for re
drafting and checking. When the nec
- essary changes are made members of
the Council will be presented with a
copy of each of the proposed grants
and a special meeting of the Council
will be called.
Masrulre AmradmrBt Fails).
In considering the East Side common-user
franchise yesterday much
opposition against the manner of
granting the franchise was voiced by
members of the Council and others. It
was declared that the arrangement un
der which the franchise grants com
mon use of tracks on the East Side
makes way for the tieing up of the en
tire East Side by the Hill and Harri
man interests. The way for this, tt
was declared, is being opened by not
requiring the - Harriman people to
grant a common-user right over pri
vate property near the new Steel
bridge through which trains must pass
to get to the East Side freight dis
A proposed amendment to the fran
chise was Introduced by Councilman
Magulre requiring the Southern Pa
cific to grant common use to all lines
across East Side property owned by
the Harriman interests, which pro
posed amendment was defeated after
much controversy by a vote of 11 to 3.
This action was declared by F. W.
Mulkey, of the Public Docks Commis
sion, who was given the courtesy of
the floor, to be extremely bad, inas
much as it meant practically the elim
ination of common-user conditions on
the East Side to all lines excepting
the Southern Pacific, the Hill lines and
a belt line such as has been proposed
by the Bocks Commission. The action
was also denounced by Councilmen
Clyde, Jennings and Magulre. Action,
however, was not reconsidered.
There was much controversy about
the valuation for the franchise. The
executive board recommended 1500 a
year, which some members of the
Council thought too low. When put
to a vote the $500 valuation carried
and the meas'uri'Vas sent to the Au
ditor for advertising.
Franchise Value Grows.
The complete morning session was
taken up with a discussion of the pro
posed Southern Pacific Fourth-street
franchise and the valuation feature of
the Hill East Side common user fran
chise. A keen fight centered around
the valuation of the Fourth-street
rights ending with an increase of the
annual rental to nearly three times the
mount recommended by the City Ex
ecutive Board. This was brought about
after a small valuation had been fixed
twice and reconsidered.
The valuation fixed by the Executive
Board was $750 a year. When this
price was brought up for consideration
Councilman Clyde protested, declaring
t that popcorn vendors who stand on the
street corners pay $650 a year, and that
their concession was nothing compared
with the right to be given the South
ern Pacific to operate cars on Fourth
Motions were made to increase the
valuation to $3000. This was declared
by Councilman Burgard to be too high.
It waa then cut to $1000, which price
was considered too low when the valua
tion of the Oregon Electric franchise
was looked up and found to be on a
graduated basis increasing each five
year period. Mayor Rushlight spoke in
favor of a low valuation, declaring that
upon the expenses of the company the
freight and passenger rates are fixed
and tfiat to add expense to the com
pany meant the increasing of rates
comparatively. A motion to fix the
valua at $750 was carried, and then the
action reconsidered. The same action
was taken later in the proceedings.
Finally a valuation of $2000 a year was
fixed and adopted by a vote of 10 to 4.
Those favoring were Councilmen Baker,
Burgard, Daly, Dunning. Jennings, Joy,
Menefee, Monks, Schmeer and Wallace.
Opposed were Councilmen Clyde, Ma
gulre, Montag and Wllhelm.
Hi tell May Reault.
After D. W. Campbell, of the South
ern Pacific, declared to the Council that
his company was willing to abandon all
claims to operate steam trains on
Fourth street and to limit trains to 200
feet in length, the franchise was sent
to the City Auditor for advertising.
While the $3000 valuation was settled
yesterday it Is considered certain that
this will cause a hitch in the proceed
ings when the measure is brought up
for final passage. Four Councilmen are
openly opposed to the valuation and
two others are expected to be when the
wnv comes. This will make It impos
sible for the measure to get the 10
votes required for Dassage.
When the Hill East 8ide franchise
was brought up for consideration C. H.
Carey, attorney for .the company, ex
plained seveEal amendments. He ex
plained the arrangement between the
Hill and Harriman lines for the East
Side common user tracks and switch
ing. A motion was made to adopt
amendments to the franchise as pre
sented by Mr. Carey, which motion was
attacked by Councilman Magulre. who
said he opposed the adoption without
investigating the amendments. In spite
of his protest the amendments were
adopted by a vote of 10 to.
ARRESTS NIPNICE SCHEME
Stranger Invited to Sit In Poker
Game to Rob Canadian.
Two young men, accused of being
promising amateur bunco artists, were
frustrated in their first venture by be
ing arrested Tuesday night by Detec
tives Hellyer and Howell, and forfeited
bail of $25 each in Municipal Court yes
terday, rather than face a charge of
disorderly conduct. The prisoners
were Claude Vitus and L. L. Adcox.
The latter recently was Implicated in a
white slave charge, involving a number
The wariness of Dave Budshaw, the
intended victim, prevented the success
of a scheme proposed . by Vitus and
Adcox. Meeting Budshaw In a restau
rant, they entered Into conversation
with him, and represented that they
had a man from Canada in tow with a
large sum of money. Budshaw was to
furnish the capital and sit in a game
of poker with the victim, while one of
the plotters stood behind and by a pre
arranged System of signals was to "tip
off" the Canadian's hand. Budshaw
agreed to the scheme, but notified the
detectives, who made the arrests.

COLLEGE WORK PROSPERS
Gale Seaman, Student Y. M. C. A.
Secretary, Tours Northwest.
Work of the Young Men's Christian
Association was never stronger In the
colleges of the Pacific Northwest than
it Is at present, according to Gale tea
man, student secretary for the Pacific
Coast who arrived in Portland yester
day. Mr. Seaman, whose home is in
Los Angeles, has just completed a tour
of the Washington colleges.
"One encouraging thing about the
student associations is that they are
doing more practical service than ever
before. At the University of Washing
ton a few days ago 12 Y. M. C. A. men
went to Edmunds, a small town, where
they spent three days, giving athletic
exhibitions in the afternoons and con
ducting religious services in the even
ing. Similar work nas Deen aone Dy
en in Oregon colleges, and tnis is
only one of several things that are
beins- accomplished. At the University
of Oregon 56 per cent of the Y. M. C.
A. members are enrouea tor moie
study, an encouraging circumstance."
Mr Seaman will spend tomorrow at
Eugene, and Saturday and Sunday at
Corvallis. From there he will return
to Los Angeles.
