WOMEN ARE URGED TO VOTE
-Newly Enfranchised Voters Told
They Hav Power to Correct
Evils and Will Ba Blamed If
Derelict In Their Duty.
H. R. AJbee. Progressive candidate
for Slayer, addressed the membsri of
the Civlo Study Club of University
Park yesterday afternoon at a meet
lng in the Portsmouth School. Tha au
dience was composed largely of wo
men, who showed by tha nature of tha
queries propounded at the conclusion
of Mr. Albee'a address, that consider
able study had been given tha various
questions that figure prominently in
the municipal campaign.
Ia tha course of his remarks Mr.
Albee dwelt on the Importance of In
vestigating the records of tha various
candidates who are seeking nomina
tions for city office and declared it to
ba a reasonable assumption that a
candidate who has failed to make a
success of his own business would
hardly ba likely to achieve success In
the management of the manifold af
fairs of a large city like Portland. He
urged the women voters to be sure to
go to the polls on Saturday and ex
ercise their newly-acquired right of
The women of Portland have it in
their power to correct many of tha
evils under which we have been labor
ing." declared the speaker, "and they
will be blamed by right-minded, pa
triotic citizens. If they are derelict 'in
their duty and fall to cast their votes
Xew Charter Favored.
In discussing the proposed adoption
of a rew charter Mr. Albee said he
believed the commission charter, al
though imperfect as drafted in Its
present form. Is a considerable im
provement on the charter now in force
in Portland. The detects, he declared,
could In due course ot time be elim
inated. "The modern trend of government ia
in favor of the centralisation of re
nonslbllity." he said, "so that the peo
ple can always be in a position to
pick out the official who is responsi
ble for reprehensible conditions. The
only way to secure this desirable re
sult, aa far aa the experience of Ameri
can cities has shown. Is to adopt the
commission form of government."
Various municipal problems were
touched upon by the candidate. He dis
cussed at some length the arguments
in favor of the establishment ot a pub
lic market, commending in this respect
the efforts put forth by the Woman's
Republic and other women's civic or
ganizations. Inrlarrators Are Vrged.
In recrard to the necessity of having
properly installed garbage Incinera
tors Mr. Albee said:
"The proper disposition of garbage
Is a subject that ought to have had
attention long ago in Portland. Ex
perts have reported, after carefully
comparing our system with that of
ether cities, that the method pursued
In Portland not only Is wasteful from
an economic standpoint but actually la
Inimical to the public health. The In
cinerating plant should be located out.
side the olty limits.
"I do not favor the purchase of Ross
Island under the present plan, whloh
practically forces the people to take
over the property without knowing its
true value. If the island Is to be ac
quired for municipal purposes. It
should be done In a manner whlcn will
leave no doubt in the minds of the
people that they are paying for it only
what it la actually worth.
"I am particularly In favor of a bet
ter lighting system. Uaqy of Port
land's streets, especially on the East
Side, are poorly lighted. This fact is
responsible, in some degree, for evil
conditions. Vice shuns the light and
flourishes in darkness."

speakers Senator Out Moser, who Intro

laws," said President Mann, "that the
