sumed, charging- the person from whose
premises they are taken $3 a head for
removal. A company has offered to
take the carcasses, making the same
charire. and converting them Into com
mercial products. It wan argued that
the step would be to the city's advan
tage, with the vegetable and fruit sea
son coming on, meaning more work for
the already overtaxed Incinerator.

Councilman Baker. In replying to
Mrs. Clark, saiil that he hoped he was
gentlemarfenough to not contradict her
statements, but that In justice to htm
self he wished to give his side of the
story. He expressed regret that the
incident had occurred, and cited the
fact that at the time It had happened
he had apologised to Mrs. Clark, and
that she had accepted his apology in
the presence, of SO women. The account
of the affair printed in The Oregonlan
had been written by the reporter, be
said, with no suggestion from him.
"I think In view of all the facts
he said, "that Mrs. Clark has treated
me unjustly. I never intentionally
offended her, and yet she persists in
hounding me.
Turning to Mrs. Clark. Mr. Baker
said that he would suggest that she
begin the matter of reform by getting
her own husband to give up smoKing,
or by protesting against the practice

me this opportunity of vindicating my
self." he said. In closing.

Pupils of Washington High
Hold Indoor Track Meet.
No Record-s Made but Keen Compe
tltion Develops and Names of
Winners Will Go On Trophy
Becoming; School Property.
Six closely-contested athletic events
marked the first Washington High girls'
annual indoor- track meet, held yes
terday in the school gymnasium. The
entire seating capacity of the hall was
taxed, there being more than 500 pres
ent. More than 160 girla took part In
the preliminaries, and when the finals
were reached 60 qualified. Miss Jean
Wold, girls' physical director of the
Lincoln and Washington High Schools,
was supervisor of the classes, and It
Is through her good, work that the co
eds of these two high schools have
taken a great Interest in athletics.
In the high jump competition, Edith
Moyer crossed the bar at t feet 9 Inches,
breaking the record made by Helen
Qauld at the recent Jefferson High
meet, her record being S feet 8 inches.
Although the Portland lnterscholastlc
co-ed high Jump waa broken. Miss Wold
was disappointed, aa a number of her
pupils have gone as high as 4 feet 3
inches in practice. Olga Klekar took
second honors In the high jump with
I feet 8 inches.
Edith Morgan Take Honor.
Edith Morgan proved the best all-
around athlete In tbe school on her
showing yesterday. In the running
broad jump she took first place with a
leap of 11 feet 8 Inches, as well as
taking first In the rope-cllmblng event.
Owing to the fact that the school's
gymnasium would not permit any long
dashes, an 80-foot sprint was arranged
for, and Ruth Doty won after being
given a hard run. Clarice Oaks took
first in the basketball throw, when she
sent the ball ti feet 11 Inches. Her
showing in the high Jump was not up
to the expectations of her physical di
rector. She has cleared over four feet
In recent workouts, but fell down mis
erably yesterday. A beautiful loving
cup was presented to the winners by
the Honeyman Hardware Company. The
girls winning will have , their names
inscribed on the trophy, and It will be
put In the Washington High trophy

Speajdng for Ourselves and Hundreds of Others:
We, the undersigned supporters of G. Evert Baker for Commissioner
of the City of Portland, hereby insist on the continuation of his candidaey
to the arbitrament of the last ballot of the voter on June 2, 7 P. M., in the
year of our Lord 1913, and for the following reasons: First, He is well
qualified. He has both common school "and college education; he is a man
of unimpeachable honesty; he has had nearly twelve years' experience largely
in commercial law practice; he has been for years an active member of civic
organizations of our city; he has had numerous law cases that have brought
him repeatedly into close relation with the various departments of our city
government; he is pains-taking with his work and a tireless worker; he is
fair-minded, a man of good habits and good sense; and. above all. he is a man
of unsullied integrity today as when Banker Gilbert, of Rhodes, Iowa, wrote:
"I have known G. Evert Baker for fifteen years. I can cheer
fully recommend him as an honest, upright young man of splendid good
habits and principles"; and as worthy of confidence today as when his col
lege president wrote of him among 3500 fellow-students: "There is no one
of whom I can, with more confidence, reeommend to public favor, llis worU
will more than verify every statement made."
Men are daily elevated to position of honor, responsibility and trust with
no better qualifications than those of E. Evert Baker, nor vouched for
from higher sources, and do not disappoint their constituents. All v ho are
intimately, acquainted with G. Evert Baker know he means what he said
when he said: "I pledge you, if elected, 'whether friend or. foe, the very
best service there is in me. I stand for a clean life, a clean city and n City
Beautiful. My motto is: For the enormous annual expense of our city ner
citizens ought, of right, receive a hundred cents 011 the dollar in service
and civic betterment." .. . . .,
It is, therefore, not too much to declare it our conviction that, ol tne
269 American cities now operating satisfactorily under the commission form
of kovernment, few, if any, have commissioners who brought to their new
and untried duties and responsibilties qualifications superior to those ol t.
Evert Baker. , , . ,. . . ,
Secondly. Mr. G. Evert Baker was, after a careful examination into his
qualifications and past record, reported back by the sub-committee of One
Hundred as one of the 20 candidates favorably recommended by it as entitled
to your support for the office of Commissioner of the City of Portland.
And it was moved and seconded by two of Portland s very prominent men
in the committee of the whole that the sub-committee's recommendation be
adopted, the president himself adding, at the time the motion was made,
that he considered any one of these candidates just as eligible as ano her

W. Stone, general secretary of ths
Portland Y. M. C A., who returned yes
terday from the East. Most of Mr.
Stone's time was passed In Cincinnati,
where he attended the convention which
has Just concluded.
'Although these gatherings are new
only once in three years," said Mr.
Stone, "an exception has been made this
time to permit delegates to visit the
Coast In 1915. I talked with a great
many men who will come, and all of
them promised to visit Portland. As
they are leaders in affairs In their re
spective cities and many of them hold
positions of National prominence, their
visit here will not be without benefit to
this city."
Mr. Stone reports that the Cincinnati
convention was in many respects the
most important Y. M. C. A. gathering
ever held. The 1300 delegates in at
tendance took up a great many ques
tions of importance within the associa-
tlon, and while there were widely dif
fering views on some of them, there
was complete harmony In supporting
the policies after a decision was once
reached. Mr. Stone was a member of
a committee on membership that sup
ported a policy of allowing full privi
leges to a member who transfers from
one city to another. This policy was
adopted despite the opposition of some
of the Eastern associations.
"I found business conditions good
everywhere I went." said Mr. Stone.
"This was particularly true in Minne
apolis, where conditions- are the best
they have been in recent years. There
they are raising $500,000, with a sin
gle subscription of $100,000 heading the
list. In a Y. M. C. A. building cam

flood district and found normal condi
tions rapidly being restored. In nearly
all of them, he says, the Y. M. C A. was
