graceful French baskets. The couple

BRIDGE PLANS BROAD
Provisions of Bills Consider
State's Future Growth.
PROJECT IS DISCUSSED
Frank B. ltiley, Chairman or Ore
gon Committee Shows In Detail
How Funds for Construction
of Span May Be Secured. -
The plan adopted by the Oregon
members of the interstate bridge com
mittee tor raising tne funds for the
construction of the proposed bridge
across the Columbia River not only
makes It possible for the funds for this
bridge to be secured effectively, but
makes a lasting provision whereby
boundary counties may all profit by it
in future, as the growth of the state's
population increases the demand for
means of ready intercommunication
with adjacent territory of neighbor
Frank B. Riley, chairman of the in
terstate bridge committee pointed this
out in a review of the plan Saturday.
"The two bills offered by the Inter
state bridge committee and Introduced
In the House by Mr. Nolta and Mr.
fgren respectively." he said, "are In
no sense local measures designed for
the benefit ot Multnomah County alone
in the proposed construction of the
great highway bridge to span the Co
lumbia at Portland and Vancouver.
Bonding Act Prspoaed.
"One of the bills Is a county bonding
act, simple, workable and effective. In
tt the definition of road is properly
made to include a bridge, bridge ap
proach or viaduct. The act authorizes
counties to issue bonds for the. con
struction of reads, provides for the pe
tition for an election to determine
whether or not the county, shall Issue
such bonds for road construction; pro
vides by what vote the bonds are to be
approved; the manner of election; the
form of petition; and the form 01 elec
tion notice and of ballot.
"The act apecifies the County Court
as a bonding committee to Issue the
bonds, sets out the form of bonds and
manner in which they are to be sold,
and directs that proceeds of bonds sold
under this act shall be paid into the
County Treasury and shall go into a
sr jcial road fund to be distributed for
the special purpose for which the bond!
were Issued; and the act, of course,
provides for the levy of the taxes ty
the County Court.
"That part of the bill which espe
cially relates to the construction of any
interstate bridge in Oregon provides, in
substance, that when the bridge Is con
structed to and over the boundary line
rf th state the county issuing the
bonds for the construction thereof snail
be entitled to deduct from the amount
of taxe-j that such county Is required
by law annually to collect and pay over
to the state, under sections 3643, 3644.
3645 and 3646 of Lord s Oregon Laws,
the amount of the. annua Interest s
cruing upon such bonds each year
thereafter during the life of tuch bonds.
State Aaslatanee .la Aim. (
"In other words. It is believed that
any county which builds a bridge across
a boundary, which bridge is of course
of much greater state-wide and inter
state Importance than any merely local
or inter-county bridge can be. shall be
assisted by the state to the extent of
the amount of the Interest charge on
the bonds. This Is In recognition b
the state of the uncommon and stra
tegic Importance of such a bridge to
the state as a whole. We believe that
tne constitutional authority of the state
to do this is clear by virtue, of an
amendment to section 7 of article 11
of the constitution, enacted by the peo
ple through the initiative In the last
The Legislative Assembly may now
create this liability to pay an amount
equal to the interest charge on the
bonds, the same being in the nature of
a debt to build and maintain permanent
roads, a bridge being comprehended, by
House bill No. 296 within the classifica
tion of permanent roads. The only limi
tation of section 11 as now amended as
it pertains to roads is that any debt or
liability created shall not singly or In
the aggregate with previous debts in
curred for that purpose exceed 2 per
cent of the assessed valuation of all
the property of the state. The assessed
valuation of the state Is sufficiently
large that there is ample room for the
small bridge appropriation contemplat
ed in addition to any amount for which
the state is likely to appropriate ior
the construction of state trunk roads
or to aid counties in the construction
of highways. ' V
. Authority to Be Given.
"The bed of a boundary stream being,
to the state boundary line, the property
of the state, the bill will definitely
carry the authority of the-state of the
county to build across the state ter
ritory. We shall also want to amend
the bill to provide that the question of
the bond issue may be submitted at any
general election, as -well as at a so-
called - 'local option' election provided
for in sections 4920, 4922. 4923, 4924,
4925. 4926. 4927. 4928. 4929 Lord's Ore
gon laws, and it Is deemed . advisable
for the more ready marketing of the
bonds to amend further to provide that
the installments of principal and inter
est on the bonds may be paid at any
fiscal agency of the State of Oregon,
in the City of New York.
- "The second bill provides' that when
ever, under the provisions of the first
bill, or of any other of this state, a
bridge is constructed across a boundary
by the two states Interested, the Gov
ernor of this Btate shall be an e'x-of-ficio
member and chairman of any
board of commissioners or any official
body empowered under' the law of this
state to construct, maintain and operate
such bridge on behalf of the State ef
Oregon or .of any county or district
therein. . ;
"The Interstate bridge features of
this proposed legislation. It will be seen,
are applicable to 11 other border coun
ties of Oregon, as well as Multnomah.!
"It is believed that with these en
abling acts carrying the co-operation
and assistance of the state to the extent
above indicated Multnomah County will
in the Spring authorize by an over
whelming vote the issuance of bonds
to the approximate amount of 31,500.000
for that part of the great structure be
longing to the Oregon side."
Jones Renamed Game Warden.
CENTRALIA. Wash.. Feb. 2. (Spe
cial.) John T. Jones, of Centralis, has
been reappointed Lewis County Game
Warden by the new Board of County
Commissioners. According to figures
just complied the Game Wardens cost
Lewis County 32400 in 1912.
SPACE -IS' UNITED
Defeat of Bonds Leaves City
BOARD IS FACING PROBLEM
Maintenance of Present Buildings
and Additions Provided for in
Levy Grammar' Schools Are
' ' Sufficient for Pupils.
While the funds provided by the reg
ular levy win be sufficient for the
maintenance - of existing ' schools In
Portland and for the extensions that
are absolutely necessary, the defeat of
the" school bond issue in the Saturday
election leaves the School Board facing
a condition of congestion,, in tne high
schools, especially. . -
The bond issue can be brought to a
vote again by petition of ten of the
taxpayers, but the expressions of the
members of the Board last night indi
cate that .they will accept the verdict
of the voters as rendered Saturday and
will themselves endeavor to get along
as best they can with the funds avail
able, and will take no steps to bring
about a reconsideration.
Additions to Be Made.
In the grammar-schools the condi
tions are not so serious as in the high
schools and the trades school. In the
trades school building there were at
first several of the primary . grammar
school grades, but with the growth of
the attendance in. the trades school
these were crowded out and the entire
building was demanded by the indus
trial work. Certain additions that are
imperative will be made this year and
were arranged for in the general levy,
but the phenomenal Increase in attend,
ance in the trades courses is expected
soon to eat up all of the available

other high schools of the city. The o id
building was filled and the overflow

GRANT SUGGESTS CHANGES
Efficiency and Economy Object of
City Attorney's Recommendations.
mnrnr the recommendations made
i ntv Attorney Grant in his report
for 1912 Just rendered to Mayor Rush
light and the Executive Board, Is that
there be an information bureau estab
lished on the main floor of the City
Hall, and that some persons having an
intimate knowledge of the various de
partments of the city government and
their luncuons oe ptatieu ui luhibo.
'Many cities nave sucn a oureau,
he says, "and it Is astonishing how
easily one may get the information
desired by a simple Inquiry at . the
A commission to formulate a plan
for co-operation of the various de
partments is also suggested along lines
similar to a large private corporation.
It is contended that money can be
saved and a more efficient government
It Is also recommended that an
amendment be submitted at the next
election providing that no appeal shall
lie from the Municipal Court unless
the fine exceeds 350 or the jail sentence
is more than, five days.
EVANS HAS NEW SYSTEM
Accused Persons WW Be Invited to
Testify Before Grand Jury.
In order to reduce to a minimum the
number of indictments which may be
defended successfully and to eliminate
as far as possible the returning of un
necessary indictments. District Attor
ney Evans has adopted a system of in
viting defendants against whom accu
sation is brought to testify before the
grand jury In their own behalf.
When the person accused Is already
under arrest or is considered not likely
to run away, he is sent a printed slip
on wjiich it is stated that the grand
Jury has a matter touching him under
investigation, and that he may appear
in his own behalf if he wishes.
The printed .slip contains a warning
that the defendant is not required to
appear unless he wishes. The reason
for this is that an indictment is worth
less In law if a defendant is forced to
give testimony before a grand Jury.

THANKFUL HE WAS NOT A WOMAN
The late. Lawson Tait, of England,
the great woman's doctor, said he never
went to bed at night without thanking
heaven he was not born a woman. No
doctor ever knew better than he what

their lives. It was an American woman
long since passed to her reward who
Cntroduced a simple combination of
roots and herbs called Lydla B. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound, that haa
proved wonderfully successful in miti
gating suffering and curing diseases of
women. It has brought unspeakable,
relief to thousands of women who suf
