Phecixcts to Be Divided. Although
by law the registration books at the
Courthouse are supposed to have been
open constantly since the city election,
for the reception of permunent regis
tration of voters, the registration has
been negligible, so small that County
Clerk Coffey has not even bothered to
keep track of the figures. Registration
is being discouraged at this time for
the reason that practically every pre
cinct in the county must be split in
two, some of them into three sections
The work will be done by the County
Commissioners this Fall. The law con
templates that there shall be only 300
voters in a precinct and provides a def-
jnite time for redisricting. 'The new
law allowing women to vote has
swelled most of the precincts far be-

Valvular disease of the heart, from
which he had been a sufferer for 17
years, ended the life yesterday of Wil

Oregon since 1906. He died at 7:10
o'clock In the morning,. Buddenly, in

nurse, who had been constantly with
him since the beginning of his illness.
He reclined on a couch.
, A moment later he complained of
severe pains in the pit of the stomach.
The nurse tried to relieve the pain
by massage. A few moments later his
head suddenly sank back and he died

Once noted for his athletic quali
ties (he was a famous baseball pitcher
here in the early '80s), Mr. Duniway
had been far from well for the last
three yeai;s. His more recent poor
health dated from a fainting spell near
the close of a strenuous campaign for
re-election as State Printer in 1912.
Physicians then told him his heart
was much weakened; a condition
further complicated by a, nervous
breakdown. He went to California for
a long rest, however, and returned In
much better health. Even then he was
far from being the man. physically that
he had been before the attack. The
strain of another Legislative session

bitter fight made -. on him as State

BARNARD CASE REVIEWED
Mary R. Schwab Declares Help Was
Given Discharged 'Strikebreaker.
PORTLAND. Aug. 5. (To the Editor.)
In The Oregonian yesterday morning
I note an item headed. "Striker now
destitute. Woman fails to receive funds
promised by I. W. W. leaders. Utterly
destitute as the result of heeding the
demands of I. W. Wr. agitators, who In
duced her to quit her position at the
Oregon packing Company's plant. Mrs.
tiarnara. a meager- woman, 55 years
old, is demanding loudly the payment
by the agitators of the strike benefits
they promised her. For lack of this
support she is delinquent in her room
rent -and her small stock of clothinsr is
detained by the landlord. i
I request the courtesy of your col
umns to state the facts as they are.
First Mrs. Barnard was never 'in
duced by the agitators or anyone else
to Join the strikers. She was discharged
by the.T Oregon Packing Company on
July 1 after having-, worked for only
two days. She went Into the Dlant as
an unconscious strikebreaker. Possibly
sne aia not understand tnat a strike
was In progress. After two days she
was discharged. The second and last
day she worked she earned 15 cents,
according to her own statements. When
she came out of the plant on the morn
ing of the first, some of the erirls
spoke to her and brought her to head
quarters. Her story excited pity and the strike
committee, after consulting together,
decided to help her as long as the
strike and funds lasted. One of the
comrades noticed the bad shoes she
was wearing and, taking $5-from hla
pocket, asked Pauline Weller, chair
man of the strike committee and her
self a striker, to go with Brs. Barnard
and get her a pair of good shoes. The
shoes cost 3. Mrs. Barnard is now
wearing those shoes.
Second Although Mrs. Barnard nev
er was a bona fide striker and was
never of much use on the picket lina
she received In the 18 days she was
with the strikers an average of over
$6 a week strike benefits, as her re
ceipts for the same will testify. This
was more than double what she could
earn in the Oregon Packing Company's
plant had she been allowed to work
there by the company.
Third The strike, thanks to the su
perior forces of the powers that be,
has been declared off and. as is weV,
known, benefits cease when a strike Is
declared off, and the income stops. This
is a fact that Mrs. Barnard cannot
grasp. She is under the impression that
In some way sv - is entitled to a life
support from this strike committee.
which has ceased to exist.
In closing I wish to call your atten
tion to this fact: Six dollars a week
strike benefit would be a substantial
strike benefit even for a ?20 a week
union mechanic out on strike. The
usual strike benefit is about a quarter
of the wages recei ed when at- work.
The strike benefits in the Oregon Pack
ing Company strike were to an amount
over twice as much as the girls had
earned, and in exceptional cases they
were even three times as much. ' In
Mrs. Barnard's case they were twice as
Mrs. Barnard has a grown-up"- son
whose duty it is to see that his mother
does not become an object of charity.
Mrs. Barnard says in this article that
she is going to come to our meetings
and if they take up a collection she is
going to step up and get her share. No
more collections are being taken, but
Mrs. Barnard will be very welcome at
these meetings. She will be asked to
take the box and state the truth as to
the amounts paid her, the substantial
food she was given and the truth of
the fact that she was a discharged
employe, and not one of those who

Clearing-House Association . to Con
sider Secretary McAdoo's Offer
of Crop Funds.
Although Portland banks are not
likely to avail themselves of the offer
recently made by Secretary McAdoo,
of the Treasury Department, to dis
tribute $50,000,000 of Government tunas
to assist in moving crops. It Is prov
able that a representative of the Port
land banks will so to Washington, u.
C. to meet with the Secretary and dis
cuss with him plans for distributing
A SDecial meeting of the Clearing-
House Association will be held this
afternoon to name the man or the men
who may be sent to Washington.
There is a well-defined feeling among
many bankers that Portland ought to
be represented at the Washington con
ference, that the Treasury officials and
the bankers from other parts of the
countrv should be thoroughly impressed
with the commercial importance of this
city. Although some of the DanKero
think it is unnecessary to sena a rep
resentative a strong effort will be
made to have one named.
The Secretary of the Treasury nas
designated 59 cities of the country
amonir which the 150.000,000 will be
distributed. Portland is one 01 me
cities, while Portland bankers are con
vinced that they can handle the crops
of the Northwest without rpplying to
the Government for funds, they may
participate in the distribution for the
mere purpose of manifesting their
faith In the plans of Secretary McAdoo.
CERTIFICATES IN FAVOR
Commissioner May Issue Public
Utility Paper Rather Than.Bonds.
Believing' that the city can get bet
ter terms by selling public utility cer
tificates than from the sale of the
incinerator bonds authorized by the
people at the last election. City Com
missioner Daly is preparing plans for
the issuance of about $100,000 in cer
tificates to be sold to the highest
bidders. He says he believes this
will be the proper way to solve the
problem of constructing a new plant
tor the consumption of garbage.
The incinerator bonds carry a pro
vision that they cannot be sold for
less than par. Interest at 4 per cent
is provided. With the bond market
low, as it is now, it is said the bonds
could not be sold because they would
not bring par. The utility certificates
are of a different nature, their life
being shorter than the usual long
time bonds and the interest being
greater. These certificates can be is
sued only for the' primary construc
tion or acquisition of a public utility.
A Question has arisen as to whether
or not the incinerator is a public
utility within the meaning of the
term. This will be decided by the
