SCHOOLS TO COST
$3,099,200 III 1913
Taxpayers' League Suggests
- Levy and Bond Issue to
BUILDING STANDARD URGED
Fireproof Structures Recommended
' From Economical Standpoint.
Taxation Said to Increase
Faster Than Population.
A levy of five mills for maintenance
of school properties and a bond issue
sufficient to provide for permanent Im
provements, such as new buildings and
trrounds. was recommended by. vv. a.
Ayer. who .represented the Taxpayers"
League In an Informal conference of
taxpayers with the School Board of
Portland, held last mgnt on invitation
of the board. The purpose or the meet'
lng was to look over the budget for
the coming year, which is to De orougni
before the people at the school meet
lnir December 27.
The budget calls for 18.099.200, the
proportion of which to be raised by
tax levy or bond issue, or both, being
Mr. Ayer said he believed that the
School Board should establish now
precedent of raising the funds for
maintenance of the school property by
tax levy and that the cost of all new
nrooertles and improvements should
be met by bond issue. He suggested
sii per cent bonds with a term of 80
years, to be. Issued in denominations as
low as $100, so that they couia De soia
by popular subscription.
Bond Issue Favored.
"I believe It Is right that the cost of
maintenance should be met by tax
levy as the demand arises," he said.
"and that the burden of paying for
improvements should be distributed by
bonding upon the generations that are
to profit by them.
J. V. Beach favored a bond issue of
$1,000,000 and a five and one-half mill
Those who attended the meeting de
Glared themselves as favoring the
school board In the plans for the com
ing year and did not oppose the budg
et, the only points of difference being
as to what proportion ol the needed
amount should be met by tax levy and
what by bond issue.
W. F. Woodward spoke warnlngly
against plans for a large bond issue,
saying that he believed the people will
oppose any large issue of bonds at the
election. He read a comparative table
of taxes in Multnomah County In the
past ten years, which was supplied
him by Henry E. Reed, showing that
the proportionate increase in taxation
has been more rapid than the Increase
Building Standard Urged.
F. W. Mulkey recommended a bond
issue for new Improvements and in
speaking upon this subject urged that
the board abandon any policy in build
lng except a fixed policy of establish
lng fireproof structures, declaring that
he believed this eventually would prove
the more economical.
Those who attended the meeting, be
sides the members of the board, were:
W. B. Ayer. W. F. Woodward,- Henry
E. Reed. J. H. Haak. L. Allen Lewis, H.

CHANUKKAH IS OBSERVED
Jewish Folk to Celebrate Feast of
Dedication for Eight Days.
Chanukkah, the Jewish Feast of
dedication begun last night and was
alebrated by the Hebrew race sjl over
will be given In celebration of the feast
at tbe Temple Beth Israel tomorrow
the world. Special mnslc and a sermon
evening, and the children will have
special services on Sunday, at the
Temple Beth Israel In the morning; at
10:30 o'clock and at the synagogue on
Sixth and Hall streets in the after
noon. To a large extent the feast has come
to be considered a children's festival.
It lasts for eight days.
The historical background of the
celebration is found in the fact that
In tbe year 165 B. C. Judas Maccabeus
re-dedicated the Temple at Jerusalem
after its pollution by Antlochus
Eplphanes, who had set up a shrine to
his heathen god. Just three years after
this pollution, on the 25th day of the
month of Klsley, the temple was re
claimed and re-dedicated to the service
Around the festival cluster many
beautiful legends, one of which is to
the effect that when the temple was re
dedlcated only a single cruse of oil
was found unpolluted. Through the
miraculous intervention of God, this oil
proved to be sufficient for burning for
eight successive nights. For this rea
son, to this day. Jews light candles in
their homes in celebration of Chanuk
kah for eight successive nights.
There is a theory that even before
Chanukkah the feast had been observed
by Jews as the beginning of the
Winter solstice, and that its origin Is
common with that of the Christian
Christmas and the Roman Saturnalia
which occur at about the same season.

TEMPLE PERE MAN OF NOTE
Son of Original "Mikado" Himself
Author and Composer.
Though not known generally to the
Portland theater-going public, and par
ticularly to those who enjoyed the
antics of the "president of the Repub
lic" in "The Rose of Panama," at the
Helllg, this city housed, up to an early
hour this morning, the offspring of one
of stagedom's most prominent and
popular of comedians of a time. This
was Richard Temple, son of the late
Richard Temple, for long a member
of the Savoy Company, of London, and
this selfsame man originated the roles
of the "Mikado" in "The Mikado," "Dick
Dead Eye" in "Pinafore" and "Pirate
King" in The Pirates or renzance.
Young Temple, or the man wno didn't
want to be president for life of a re
public, in addition to being a finished
actor, is alao an author and composer
of no mean ability. Recently he com
pleted a romantic comic opera, founded
on Dumas' "Three Musketeers." He is
also at work now on a musical "version
of Mark Twain's "Yankee in King Ar
thur's Court," In which Roger Gray, the

It will be a few miles shorter."
Mr. Farrell announced further that
the proposed new union passenger ter

extended conferences In New Tork
while he was there and that the plans
and specifications for the structure

VALE, Or., Dec 4. (Special.) Nu
merous reports of rich gold strikes in
the vicinity of Malheur City, which
were at first treated lightly, now are
causing considerable excitement In this
section. When D. K. Worsham, F. L.
Johnson and other large mine owners
from Malheur came to Vale last week
with rocks weighing from two to 10
pounds and with gold in them visible
to the naked eye, with Government as
says which showed exceptionally well,
the authenticity of their claims was
For many years Malheur City has
been a great gold producing country,
supporting such mines as the Oolden
Eagle, Red White and Blue, Black
Eagle and others, but owing to difficul
ties which have Involved lawsuits they
have been closed for several seasons.
Last week George H. Bodflsh sold his
holdings to Dr. S. D. Taylor, of Vale,
for 25,000. Claude Worsham bonded
his holdings in the same locality for
$100,000 to Baker people.
FRICTION AT COUNCIL MEET
Hood River Aldermen Clash on Time
for Advertising Bids.
HOOD RIVER, OrTDec 4. (Special.)
More friction has been created be
tween Councllmen of Hood River be
cause of the differences of opinion over
the proposed municipal water system,
bids for the installation of which are
now being advertised for, than from
any other source for the last five years.
Monday night tbe wrath of Coun
cilman A. C Staten was aroused be
cause of the determination of his fellow-officers
to advertise for bids for
18 days Instead of the period of 30 days.
Mr. Staten declared that it was a mat
ter on which the prospective contract
ors for the work should be allowed de
termination. However, he alone voted
against the resolution calling for the
18-day period of advertisement. The
bids on the $90,000 job will be opened
by the Board of Aldermen Monday
evening, December 23.
