CUf EXPENSE ROLL
Salary Rises Sought by Em
ployes of Portland Met
ASSISTANT CHIEF CREATED
Though Desperate Fight la Made
Against $200 Position, Backed by
Mayor and Chief, Deal Goes
Through Moore Gets Place.
MAYOR "irU.L TEST LAW.
Mayor Rushlight will make a test
of the emergency clause law in con
nection with several appropriation or
dinances, passed yesterday, but with
out the emergency clause. Unless
the Mayor wins his point and can
show that the salaries of the hun
dreds of men Involved are a legal
claim, taking precedence over this
technical point, the men will have
to wait until February 25 for Jan
"I shall endeavor to pay these men
their salaries February 1." said the
Mayor last niKht. "I have asked
the City Attorney whether this emer
gency clause must be observed in this
Instance. Several hundred men are
involved and It Is of great import
ance that they should get their pay
Virtually every increase in salary
sought by city employes was granted
by the City Council yesterday. All la
borers in every department were ad
vanced from $2.75 to S3 a day of eight
hours. This is an aggregate of about
SJti.OuO a year. Other rises given bring
the totul up to more than $40,000.
A desperate fight was made against
the creation of the position of Assist
ant Chief of I'olice. but it nevertheless
carried, there being but the necessary
eight votes to put it through.
This is a new position, which was
recommended by Mayor Rushlight,
Chief of Police fclover and others. The
Mayor has said that he will appoint
John T. Moore, senior captain, to the
place. The salary was fixed at fJOO a
month. $25 a month above the rate of
pay for captains.
Soaie Hoped-for Rises Lose.
Notable among the rises sought for
but not granted were those of the
Poundmaster, chief clerk of the Mu
nicipal Free Employment Bureau and
traction engineers in the City Engi
It required the entire forenoon for
the Council to thresh out the proposals
lor increases, the largest Item of which
was for common labor. Councilman
Ialy continued fighting for a rise from
2.7a to S3 a day of eight hours for
this class of employes. He declared
that this is the rate of pay in San Fran
cisco. Spokane, Tacoma and Seattle,
and said that It costs as much to live
In Portland as In those cities.
Councilman Baker, speaking for the
administration, said that S3 a day for
any man upon which to support a fam
ily is small. He held that he would not
care to take the place of any laborer
and work on the streets by day or
night in all kinds of weather and at
tempt to live on S3 a day, and he said
be believed that to. grant this rise to
these laborers was but fair to them.
Baker Sees Bugaboo.
In regard to the "poor taxpayers, for
whom we are all expected to look out,"
Baid Mr. Baker, "I will say that those
same taxpayers put me here to use my
best judgment on all matters, and it is
my best Judgment that these laborers
are entitled to this increase. If there
Is complaint from taxpayers, I am
sorry, but I think there will be none;
to date I have had no complaints from
them, and I think this is largely a
bugaboo, brought in here to frighten
Councilman Montag took a decided
stand against Increases, voting against
nearly all of them, including those for
the laborers. He said he employs labor
ers himself and pays them S2.50 and
S2.75 a day. and he saw "no sense in
the city putting a premium on labor."
Councilman Wallace, chairman of the
ways and means committee, expressed
himself us being of the same opinion;
he favored but few increases.
Mayor Rushlight won his point over
Councilman Maguire in regard to trac
tion engineers, and their rate of pay
was made the same' as heretofore 45
cents an hour. Mr. Maguire favored
making it S120 a month, but the Mayor
said they should be retained at the
Councilman Maguire. who is a candi
date for Mayor, declared that the Mayor
was making a personal fight on him.
Personal Klfiht Aliened.
"I am told that this Is a personal
fight on me," said Maguire. "I want
to state right here that, if the Mayor
and this Council want to save money
for the taxpayers. I can cut off $75,000
a year. I can point out no end of use
less officials, who are falling over
themselves trying to keep out of each
others way. In one department we
have the spectacle of Ave foremen di
recting the work of 15 men; yet, when
spoke to the head of the department
about it, he said that he could not
help it: that political reasons forced
him to keep them on their Jobs."
Mr. Maguire expressly mentioned
a smoke inspector, which it was
planned to be created, but Mayor Rush
light called attention to the fact that
he himself eliminated this item from
the budget, thinking it unnecessary.
"I am greatly surprised at this out
burst." replied Councilman Baker. "In
deed. I am. Here we have Mr. Maguire,
who has been a member for nearly two
years, speaking out here now, 'Just be
fore the battle, mother,' so to speak,
and telling us what marvelous savings
he could make. Why did he sit here
all this time and permit this city to
run along without working this great
saving? It's a Joke."
Mr. Maguire replied that he had
called attention to some things more
than a year ago, but that the Council
did not act on them.
An effort to install an additional
engineer in the City Hall met with
failure. The present engineer is satis
fied with his Job, and is getting over
time pay for it. he having to work
sometimes longer than the eight-hour
day prescribed by the charter. How
ever. It was said there is not enough
work for two engineers of eight hours
SLOUGH MAY BE DREDGED
North Portland Club Find Legisla
tive Action Vnnecessary.
Legislation will be unnecessary to
form a drainage district for the dredg
ing of Columbia Slough for sewerage
and a ship canal, according to the in
vestigations made by S. U Woodward,
president of the North Portland Com
mercial Club, and Attorney R. W. Mon
tague. Mr. Woodward asked Mr. Mon
tague to prepare a bill providing for a
drainage district, but Mr. Montague
found that a bill passed the Legisla
ture in 110 covering the whole matter
and making additional legislation un
necessary. By this act a drainage dis
trict may be formed and bonds issued
for the drainage of the district on vote
of the people. If the district is formed
under the act a commission of five ap
pointed bv the Governor may handle
all the business of issuing the bonds
and expending the money in draining
"Under this act" said Mr. Woodward,
"we seem to have all the legal author
ity to form a drainage district for the
dredging of Columbia Slough, and we
are now proceeding to take the first
steps toward forming a drainage dis
trict. The boundaries of this district
are being defined by City Engineer
Hurlburt and also the City Engineer
of St Johns, as St Johns is in the dis
trict and interested in sewerage. "
"As soon as the district has been
formed Detitions will be circulated au
thorizing the Issuance of bonds re
quired to pay for dredging Columbia
Slough. Discovery of this law of 1910
will enable us to get quicker action
than through additional legislation.
Cost of dredging Columbia Slough will
be less than an intercepting sewer
trunk would cost and we shall solve
the sewer problem on the Peninsula,
besides getting a ship canal.
SEALERS' SESSIONS Ei
FA1II TRIAL OP PARCEL POST IS
Oregon Hardware Association Ap
proves or Teal for Cabinet and
Move for "Home Industry."
"We are in favor of a fair and lnv
partial trial of the parcel post in Its
present form and express our aisap
nroval of the making of any changes or
Iterations by the Congress now in
session." In this resolution the Ore
gon Hardware & Implement Dealers'
Association went on record regarding
the parcel post at the close of its an
nual session yesterday afternoon. The
opposition of the organization to the
parcels post was unanimous at the
convention last year, but under the
zone system as it Is now in operation.
there is a sentiment among tnem tnat
it will not work to the serious dis
advantage of the retailer. Any move
ment to eliminate the tone system and
establish a flat rate will be fought by
the association, however.
Another Important resolution was
that approving J. N. Teal for appoint
ment as Secretary of the Interior, and
commending the action of Congress in
granting the free use of the Panama
Canal to American coastwise traffic.
Mr. Teal's work in securing this con
dition was warmly commended, and it
was held that the action of the United
States is not in any sense a violation
of any treaty.
Penny postage was indorsed, and It
was urged that such a law be adopted
speedily by Congress. The "home in
dustry" movement was favored by the
association, which recommended pref
erence for Oregon goods wherever pos
sible. Fake advertising, too many spe
cial salesmen and solicitation of retail
trade by manufacturers were opposed
by resolution. .Another resolution was
passed favoring laws to facilitate the
acquisition of title by settlers on land
coming under the Carey act.
Mombers of the resolution commit
tee were E. A. Franz, W. E. Craven and
Theodore P. Cramer.
The last work of the session was
the award of the prizes offered by
several dealers tn the city. F. R. Leon
ard received the prize for the best re
sume of the convention proceedings;
President Glen G. Goodman the prize
for the most popular member; N. D.
Cool, of Drain, first prize for the best
paper on a trade subject; Theodore
Cramer, of Grants Pass, second prize,
and J. R. Craven, of Dallas, third. L.
K Lane won the prize for the best de
scriptive advertisement of a wheel
barrow contributed by a local company.
The prize for the homeliest man looked
at first as thought it would go beg
ging until it was made compulsory
for everyone to compete and to vote
upon it. Secretary H. J. Altnow was
made the "goat" in this award by his
fallow members, and accepted the prize
gracefully, although he expressed the
private opinion that there were others

Bill for Legislature.

and Drafted So as Not to
Clash With Washington.

a meeting of the Merchants Exchange
Association yesterday morning it was
decided to prepare a bill providing
for inspection and submit it to the Leg

Portland was present at the meeting,
which was held In the rooms of the
exchange In the Board of Trade build
ing, and was presided over by J. w.
Ganong. president of the association.
A committee, consisting of R. Kennedy,
R. J. Paterson and A. Cohn, was ap
pointed to draft the bill and report to
another meeting of the association,
which the president may call next week.
There was Borne question of the ne
cessity for such a measure, several of
the larger dealers holding tnat it
would not be advantageous, but there
was no direct opposition, and on a vote
being taken to ask the Legislature to
pass such a bill the motion carried
Washington Law Followed.
The bill that will be recommended
will provide for non-compulsory In
spection of wheat, oats, barley and
hav. It will be modeled to a certain
extent after the Washington State
grain inspection law end will provide
for one chief inspector at a salary of
$2000 a year, which the state will pay,
and as many additional inspectors as
are needed, who will get their pay out
of inspection fees. The Inspection
charges will be the same as in Wash
ington. It will be optional with the seller
whether or not he has state inspection,
but if his grain is inspected here he
will have to pay for It.
The new law will place tne ouraen
of Inspection on the state officials, in
stead of on the buyers, as at present.
It will also remove the only advantage
that the Sound ports have had over
Portland as markets for grain. This
advantage has been apparent rather
than real, because the old method of
inspection in the local market has in
many cases been more favorable to
the growers than official Inspection
would be. Many farmers, however, have
thought that they were at a disadvan
tage in shipping here and have sent
thoir e-raln and hay to Seattle or Ta
coma, where it would -e passed on by
Optional Inspection Favored.
In the eyes of some of the farmers, a
urate certificate of Inspection, duly
signed and sealed, is of as much im
portance as the price received. Taken
altogether, the dealers of this city be
lieve that a law proviaing tor opuunai
inspection, by removing one obstacle
that has existed, would bring more
grain to Portland and In more ways
than one help this port
The measure will be so framed that
there will be no conflict with the Wash
ington inspection law. Any grain or

Washington warehouse and inspected

IDLE MEN ARE HERDED
PATROLMEX GET 55 'SLEEPERS'
AT "MEN'S RESORT."
Two Are Held and Remainder Given
Freedom on Promise to Find
Employment Without Delay.
Following a precedent of a year ago
which proved effective in preventing a
"crime wave" Just as it was about to
break, the police commenced, yester
day morning, a policy of weeding out
Che idle men in the North End. Con
fining their activities to the Men's
Resort at Fourth and Burnside street
Sergeant Van Overn and Patrolmen
Epps, Christofferson, Maas and Mad
den, at daylight yesterday routed out
55 "sleepers" in the place and marched
them to the police station.
There were 100 men enjoying free
lodgings in the resort and all were
subjected to examination before the
arrests were made. Discrimination was
allowed in favor of those who had Just
arrived in the city and had not had
time to place themselves. An aggre
gate of less than $2 was found in the
possession of the men questioned.
Those placed under arrest were prin
cipally men known to have been in the
city for several days or more without
apparent effort to find work. When
taken to the station, it was necessary
to herd the captives in the courtroom,
for lack of other space. One of the
prisoners, Carl Weed, attempted to
escape by Jumping out of a window,
but struck a skylight in an adjoining
hotel and was recaptured. This ex
ploit cost him Ave days of liberty. The
only other man sentenced, Frank Gould,
got 90 days because he was under a
Lined up in double rank before the
bench, the remaining prisoners were
questioned by the court as to their In
tentions, and all declared that they
wished nothing more than a chance to
go to work.
"There Is plenty of work up around
Eugene," advised Judge Tazwell.
"No strike on?" asked one of" the
"I don't know." replied the court,
"but even if there is, you would be
better at work than bumming here in
Under threat of a six months' term,
the 53 trooped out of the court, prom
ising to go to work at once.
The reason for the round-up was the
belief of Chief Slover that . the city
is on the verge of an epidemic of crime.
Up to the present the Winter has been
singularly free from serious crime, but
the Increasing gathering of idle men
was deemed ominous. Raids upon their
haunts will continue as deemed neces
sary until the season for outdoor work
BOYS STAY BY PLAIN GARB
Lincoln High Students Appear in
Boots and Overalls Again.
Aiming in no way at the sensible
efforts toward dress reform being made
by the girls of Lincoln High School,
the boys yesterday turned out in force
and almost to a "man" in clothes dis
tinctly the worse for wear; in soft
shirts, with only an occasional neck
tie; high, boots, overalls - and all tne
paraphernalia of the honest son of toil.
Though It arose from the daring of
the few members of the graduating
class, who startled teachers and stu
dents alike the previous day by their
attire, the one aim and purpose of the
turnout yesterday was to mark the
inauguration of a new "red letter" day
th the scholastic calendar. There is
already "loud Sock" day, which marks
the opening of the baseball season, and
the idea is to have other such special
occasions te mark either end of a term
or beginning of a term with peculiar
attire for each.
Jury Is Unable to Agree.
After having been locked up in the
jury-room from 11 A. M. Thursday un
til 10 A. M. iriday. witn snort inter
missions for meals, the jury in the
case of Louis D. F. Lovray against the
Pacific Telephone & Telegraph Com
pany, reported to Judge Bean in the
United States District Court that it
was unable to agree upon a verdict
and was discharged. The suit was zo
recover ,000 for personal injuries,
the plaintiff having been employed
by the defendant company as a line
man. He fell with a poie that was
rotten at the base. The defense was
that the man was skilled in his em
ployment and assumed all risks when
he undertook the Job. The first vote
taken by the jury was 10 to 2 that the
plaintiff should recover something.
After several hours of argument the
vote stood 8 to 4 for the plaintiff to
recover and it remained that way until
the Jury was discharged. Judge Bean

San Francisco & Portland to
Move Ticket Office.
AINSW0RTH DOCK IS SITE
After February 1 Tickets for Rose
City, Beaver and Bear Will Be
Sold at New Location,
It Is Announced.
By February 1 the city ticket office
of the San Francisco & Portland Steam
ship Company will be closed at 132
Third street and the furnishings moved
to Ainsworth dock. After that date,
and until such time as the withdrawal
of the line from the management of
the Pacific Mall steamship company is
fully effected, and an uptown agency
maintained at the citv ticket office of
the O.-W. R. & N. Company, tickets for
the steamers Beaver, Bear and ' Rose
City will be sold at the dock.
The change accounts for the fact that
the steamship interests made no move
to provide a new office. They will be
forced to vacate the present location
next month, as the property is to be
improved. A lease had been arranged
for a portion of a cigar store at Third
and Washington streets, but as the dis
solution of the two lines was started
immediately after the lease was settled,
no use will be made of it under the
Representatives of the line here ad
mit Instructions have been received to
close the office, and It is fully ex
pected that in a few days details will
be made known of the future plan of
operation. It is reasoned that as the
divorcing of the O.-W. R. & N. and al
lied lines in the Union Pacific system
from the Southern Pacific is under way,
nothing will be done toward a new
city office until the Southern Pacific
leaves the present quarters shared with
the O.-W. R. & N. ticket agency, and
then a steamship ticket man will take
a portion of the space occupied by the
With the headquarters cf the San
Francisco & Portland established here,
it is not doubted new docks will soon
be under way. As most of the sup
plies for the steamers will be pur
chased in Portland, the change will be
a valuable one commercially. In for
mer days the same arrangement was
in vogue, when but two steamers were
operated, and the business then was

All doubts as to the efficiency of a
combination gas and whistling buoy
established outside the bar and to the
south of the entrance have been elim
inated to the satisfaction of Henry L.
Beck, inspector of the 17th lighthouse
district, on the receipt of reports from
vessels that the illumination was picked
up at a distance of nine miles. The
light is red and flashes and becauso
of the screen used to produce the hue
It is estimated that the strength of the
light is reduced two-thirds. A flashing
white light will be established on the
north side of the entrance and, as it
can be seen equally as. far, it is felt
that the river's mouth will be suffi
ciently designated at night.
A gas buoy at Harrington's Point
has been taken np and one first estab
lished as No. 10, to mark Clatsop Spit,
substituted. The former will be
equipped with a new burner and the
whistle tube will be plugged, so, as
it has a larger hull, it is being counted
on not to "tow under" when moored as
No. 10 inside the bar.
DALLES CITY TO BREAK ICE
Schedule of Steamer Changed and
Dally Service Is Result.
Leaving here this morning for The
Dalles, the steamer Dalies City will
attempt to cut her way through the ice
between Klickitat and Lyle and in ad
dition she inaugurates a new schedule.
She will leave Portland hereafter Tues
day, Thursday and Saturday of each
week, instead of Monday, Wednesday
As the steamer Tahoma Is operated
on the latter schedule, this city will
have a daily boat to Middle Columbia
points during the Winter.
It was reported yesterday that much
of the ice had broken in the vicinity of
Memaloose Island and was all out of
the "narrows," but about a mile and a
half of It has left between Klickitat
and Lyle. Ice remains in the big eddy
above The Dalles, but that does not in

Half the people you meet complain of
weary muscles, stagnant brain. Jangled
nerves, and & wonderful desire to lay
down and just quit Most of these people
have been using nervines that spasmod
ically flare up the nerves only to dla
down again, as die they must Avoid
nerve stimulants. Bear In mind that this
worn out feeling is due to poor blood,
to bacteria in the water you drink; to
the multiplying of destructive germs in
the blood faster than they can be over
come by the white corpuscles; and to
what is known as auto-toxemla, that con
dition where the venous or impure blood
accumulates faster than it can be re
placed by the red arterial blood.
