Municipal Garbaob Plant Opposed.
At the meeting of the Sallwood Board
of Trade. Tuesday night, at the rooms
of the Sellwood 4'. M. C A., the mem
bers went on record as opposed to a
municipal garbage plant, but decided
to ask the city to devise means to
solve the problem, which was declared
to be acute In Sellwood and In other
suburbs. It was the sense of the club
that If the city undertook to establish
a garbapre plant and manufacture fer
tilizers It would require more bonds
and open opportunity for mismanage
ment and graft, and hence the club
favored disposal of garbage through
a corporation. Opposition to the $1,
000.000 school bond issue was mani
fested until it was shown that part of
the money would be used for the
establishment of an Industrial High
School in the South East Side.
