COMMITTEE GETS POWER
Minority Report Is Withdrawn as
Means or Et-tablishlnff Harmony.
II. .1. Mclnnis Sounds Note of
Warning to Trustees.
After considerable discussion, the
trustee of the First Methodist Church,
who met Tuesday night at the First
Methodist Episcopal Church, agreed
unon the report of the committee on
the new t-hnrrh, and subject to the
agreement of the quarterly conference,
to he held a week from tomorrow, will
hulld a new church, costing JloO.OOf,
on the site of the present Grace Church
at Twelfth and Taylor streets.
When Bishop Cooke left the meeting
of the trustees to attend a Chinese
mission, the body was still discussing
the question of the new church, in a
few short words he voiced his opinion
that thev would be unanimous in nav
ing a church that would be a credit
to Methodism !n the cits", but he also
jrave them a. warning:
"Brethren. Tou have brains enough
I repeat, brains enough. All that is
necessary is for you to see eye to eye
in this matter, and to agree, for if
you cannot agree you will have dealt
the biggest death Mow to Methodism
-that it haa been dealt in 50 years."
Power to Act Asked.
The meeting had been adjourned
from the previous Tuesday and G. F.
Johnson presented the majority report
of the trustees, all of whom, with the
exception of two out of the nine, had
In that they asked for power to deal,
as they thought fit. In the best Inter
ests of the church with the property
of the church, namely the Third and
Taylor-street property and the Eleventh
and Salmon-street property, either
selling It, or leasing It, or Improving
it, or raising a mortgage upon it; with
the proviso that half of the total value
of the property, whether sold or re
tained, be put towards tho cost of
building a new church or so adding to
the present Grace Church n to make
it adequate to the requirements, while
. the income from the other half be put
towards the city extension fund or
to other missionary work or benevolent
purposes, as seemed best. This income,
however, was to be used either in help
ing to pay off any debt from building
for a certain time or until such debt
has been paid off before it should be
applied to extension work.
Minority Heport Withdrawn.
S. Lee Paget and T. S. McDaniels,
who composed the minority, had pre
pared a report as well, but withdrew
it. At first the majority report was
adopted, but then was reconsidered,
whereupon considerable discussion took
This discussion hinged upon the ad
visability of selling the property at
alL The minority trustees were not in
favor of the resolution, because it gave
them the right to sell property, which
if they understood the wish of the peo
ple, was not to be sold.
Mr. Johnson then explained that in
any case the trustees could not go
ahead without the consent of the quar
terly conference, while he showed fully
that they did not necessarily intend to
sell the property, in fact it was more
than probable that such would not be'
tlie case at the present time, while he
thought the plan outlined by Mr. Paget
for a mortsage upon the property a
Soul-Winning: First Aim.
However, they asked for the authority
of the board to go into the matter fully.;
with ful! authority to act as they should
consider best in the interests of the
church, always remembering that the
duty of the church was first of all
soul winning, and not how to get the
very best marketable value for real es
tate. Tta possibility of adding to Grace
Church so as to meet with all the re
quirements desired was generally ad
mitted as impracticable for more than
one reason, the main one being that it
would not be fireproof, so that the
question was how best to arrange for
the building of a new church on that
The cost of the church has been
placed at $130,000, of which it is pro
posed to raise $75,000 front the congre
gation, and the rest from the property,
either by sale of one and leasing of the
other or in what way seemed fit.
Warning INote sounded.
Mr. Johnson several times asked the
members to consider the advisability of
enabling some progress to be made.
"Let us have unison one way or the
other. Either vote our report down
altogether, and elect a new board en
tirely to set about this matter In some
other way, or adopt our report and
trust us to see that we do the best for
the church. But above all do not let
us waste any more time. We have
done nothing so far, and every delay
now is serious.
In the course of a logical speech H.
J. Mclnnls told of the impossibility of
remaining much longer in their present
inadequate quarters, of the general
desire to have a new church, owing
to the Impossibility of adapting the
present Grace Church, and issued a
warning that if something were not
done soon the members of Grace Church
might prefer to go back to their own
hurch. Ho strongly advised that the
board be allowed to go on with their

The annual meeting of the First Uni
tarian Society was held Tuesday eve
ning in the assembly-room of the First
Unitarian Church. Over 300 members
were present. Previous to the meeting
the members were the guests of the
Women's Alliance of the church at a
banquet and which is an annual cus
tom that precedes the actual business
of the evening. William F. w ooowara,
moderator of the board of trustees,
acted as presiding officer, assisted by
James D. Hart, its secretary.
The first business was the reading
of the reports of the many auxilliary
societies of the organization, which
showed their accomplishments in their
respective branches of work.
Rev. W. G. Eliot. Jr., was the last
to be called on for his pastoral re
port. The mention of his name called
forth Intense applause. He dealt brief
ly on the past year, submitting some
statistics to the secretary without
reading them and spoko touchingly of
the members who had passed away
during the past year. With this re
trospective he talked or the luiure oi
the church, stating that with reason
able certainty the present edifice would
be disposed of shortly, and surely wun
in the present year a new home for
the church would have to be found.
In this connection he suggested that
of the sale price at least $100,000
should be conserved for the purpose
of the general good of the City of
Portland through the channels of the
church, but not necessarily be con
fined to its personal work. He also
expressed the wish that a home for
the pastor be erected in connection
with the new building, as it would con
form to its best interests.
Dr. T. L. Eliot, pastor emeritus of
church, delivered a short address, as
is his custom at the annual meetings.
The following were elected unani-
mouslv to serve as trustees for a term
of three years: Mrs. L. W. Sitton, Sid
ney G. Lathrop and James D. Hart.

to testify in the vice-investigation.
Wether the police succeeded in serv

be decided by the courts. It was shoved
through the iron cage of an elevator
in which Sipp was riding. Five hun

conducted to the elevator.
After Sipp's testimony before the

Irresponsible Collection Agencies
Target of Proposed Measure Re
quiring Bond of $5000.
Combating the use of trading stamps
among retailers and the dangers at
tendant to the lack of responsibility
tn some collection agencies, the Re
tail Grocers' Association has prepared
two bills, which were indorsed at the
annual meeting at Alisky hall last
night and will be presented at the
present session of the State Legisla
ture. Business Secretary Merrick said last
night when he introduced the draft
of the anti-trading stamp bill, that in
other states, laws prohibiting their use
have been passed, but have been de
clared unconstitutional. The law
which the Grocers' Association is of
fering, consequently is not ' a law to
prohibit the use of trading stamps
or coupons, but to place a license of
$100 a year upon them. By this meth
od, it was held, small dealers will find
It inadvisable to use them as a feature
to attract trade.
The bill directed against irresponsi
ble collection agencies calls for a bond
of $5000 from every collection agency
operating in the state, exclusive of
lawyers and law firms. The purpose
of the bill is to put a stop to prac
tices of transient and irresponsible
parties, who have, it is claimed, on oc
casions when nothing else offered it
self to them, taken up collection work,
with results more or less disastrous
not only to their clients but to reput
able and responsible collection agents.
In case the anti-trading stamp bill
fails to pass in the Legislature, the
Portland Retail Grocers intend to be

ARBITRATION PLEA MADE
SCHOOL BOARD" HEARS STEAM
Protesters Declare Action Would
Force Them Into Courts
and Prove Costly.
The Board of Education met Tues
day In the Tllford building and received
a delegation of steamfittlng contract
ors, who came to object to the clause
of arbitration being eliminated from
the specifications for the Jonesmore
School. Tillamook, East Eightieth
and Eighty-first streets.
W. W. Cox, secretary of the Steam
fitters' Association; read a letter which
said that the contractors objected to
giving the architects nearly- unlimited
and final power over the contractors.
George W. Kendell also objected.
"The only change is leaving out the
clause of arbitration, said J. v. Beach
of the Board, "you still have the courts
to refer to. The word 'final' means
"You "want to "do away with arbi
tration and force the contractors to
sue for an agreement and that costs
too much, answered Mr. Kendell.
"The Board wants to do away with
arbitration because it cost too much,"
said Mr. Beach.
"You would deal a body blow to
everv contractor if you reft out the
arbitration clause, and would establish
a precedent for other architects to take
advantage of," answered Mr. Kendell.
The contractors were anxious to have
the Board know that they did not dis
trust the Board, but believed that the
Board was influenced by a decision
which they considered unfavorable in
a previous case of arbitration.
Mr. Beach and rl. L. taDin eacn saia
that they had known of but one case
of arbitration in their experience on
the Board, which in the case ot Mr.
Beach was many years. Mr. Sabin said
that he thought that a suit with sworn
testimony and a courtrrecord was due
to taxpayers instead of arbitration.

The chronological references found on

the work of Bishop Ussher, a prelate
of the Irish Church, who lived in the
