Light Power Company's general fran chise sent to City Attorney for re drafting. Heliig and Dickinson Seventh-street franchise sent to City Attorney for redrafting and checking. ' 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 tricts. . 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 street. 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 of people. 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.
