ACTION OH GAR
Introduction of New System of
Electric Light Signs Held
Up by Commission.
COSTELLO CLAIM DENIED
City Decides to Purchase - $60,000
Bonds of Water Department and
Opens Tenders for Paving
Of Several Streets.
COOT It PROCEEDINGS IS BRIEF.
Action on proposed electric
sign ordinance again deferred.
Request of Johanna Costello for
payment of damage for the kill
ing of her son denied.
Car-ticket ordinance postponed
Question Of Inaur ance on
Ordinance passed requiring all
city employes to report defective
streets, sidewalks and insanitary
Ordinance passed providing for
purchase of $60,000 water bonds.
Contract let for waterproofing:
For the purpose of considering in
greater detail the electric sign condi
tions in the city, the City Commission
yesterday deferred action again on the
proposed amendment to the sign ordi
nance permitting ' the use of magni
fying bullseye lens signs. The measure
was referred to Commissioners Daly
and Bigelow after a heated debate in
which manufacturers of the lens sign,
who have headquarters in the East,
and. representatives of local sign man
ufacturers and labor union representa
tives took part.
Commissioners Daly, Brewster and
Dleck stood out against the passage of
the lens sign provision, while Mayor
Albee and Commistoner Bigelow fa
vored it. ,
Government Recognition Cited.
The lens sign people, represented' by
Dan J. Malarkey, attorney, asserted
that the lens signs should be permitted
Inasmuch as they are artistic in ap
pearance and cost less to purchase
andoperate than the electric signs out
lined with lights. It was declared that
the lens signs are permitted in other
cities of the country and are recog
nized by the Federal Government as
efficient signs, several having been
used on the Federal buildings in
Washington, D. C.
When the Commission voted in favor
of deferring action on the question At
torney Malarkey declared that there
were reasons for such action which
did not appear on the surface. He de
clared that the labor Interests have
been busy and are trying to keep out
the lens signs because they would cut
into the local sign manufacturing busi
ness. The lens sign manufacturers have
ansounced that they propose to estab
lish a factory here for the manufacture
of their signs, the factory to be in
stalled as soon as permission is given
for the use of the product.
Old Case Decided.
After lengthy consideration the Com
mission voted to deny the request of
Johanna Costello for- the payment of
$7600 for the killing last year of her
son. Maurice Costello, by the police
patrol wagon. Mrs. Costello Is in desti
tute circumstances. It was said at the
meeting yesterday by Commlsioner
Daly that he has investigated the case
and has found that Mrs. Costello was
never supported by her son and for
that reason her means of support was
not taken away by his death.
Action on the proposed ordinance re
quiring the streetcar company to grant
six fares for 25 cents was postponed
for two weeks. It is proposed between
now and then to have a public hear
ing in which the ordinance win be con
sidered. Interest of Kmployea Required.
An ordinance was passed requiring
all city employes in the future to re
port defective sidewalks and streets,
leakage. 4n sewers or water mains and
insanitary conditions in . any part of
A contract was awarded to the
Knott-Joslyn Company for the water
proofing of Mount Tabor reservoir to
stop leaks which are responsible for
the loss of much water. The question
of Insuring the bridges over the Wil
lamette was considered and referred to
Commissioner Brewster for decision.
There is a question whether the city
or tne county snoulrt place the insur
ance and pay the premium.
An ordinance was passed- authoriz
ing the purchase from the bonded in
debtedness sinking fund of $60,000
worth of the $75,000 In 30-year 4 per
cent water bonds to be sold August
13. The remaining $15,000 bonds will
be sold to the highest bidders.

punishable by a fine and jail sentence,
for any person or firm to construct or
maintain a combustible, sign of more
than 20 square feet in area on the wall

WYLD TO GO EAST
Portland to Be Represented at
Conference on Distribution
$1,000,000 WAY COME HERE
Campaign Commenced to Have This
City Designated as One of 12
Points for Location of Re
gional Reserve Banks.
Ernest A. Wyld,' vice-president of the
Security Savings & Trust Company, will
go to Washington, D. C, next week to
represent the bankers of Portland at
the conference which Secretary McAdoo,
of th6 Treasury Department, has called
as a preliminary to his proposed dis
tribution of $50,000,000 among the
banks of the West and the South In an
endeavor to relieve the financial string
ency usually incidental to the move
ment of crops.
Mr. Wyld was chosen at 4 meeting
of the Portland Clearing-House Asso
ciation yesterday. He is a progressive
banker of the "constructive" type and
will be able to present with adequate
emphasis the importance of Portland's
It is probable that Mr. Wyld will
leave Portland Saturday or Sunday. The
conference" of Pacific Coast bankers
with Secretary McAdoo will take place
on Thursday, August 14.
Inasmuch as Portland has been .se
lected by the Secretary as one of the
69 cities of the United States among
which the $50,000,000 fund Is to be dis
tributed Mr. Wyld will be prepared to
make application for a share of the
fund sufficient to enable the bankers of
this city to assist in moving the North,
Average Demand SX0O,0O0.
Portland, bankers hope that at least
1, 000,000 of the $50,000,000 will be
allotted to this city. .
Incomplete figures presented to the
clearing-house show that the loans in
Portland banks are swelled from $5,
600,000 to SfS, 000,000 annually between
July and November the period during
which the great bulk of the crops is
handled. Although $1,000,000 will not
be sufficients meet this year's demand
for crop loans this sum will serve effec
tively to relieve the situation. Seattle
and Spokane each will be allotted a
share of the fund thus aiding material
ly in meeting-the clamor for cash.
Portland is recognized among bank
ers throughout the country as the com
mercial and financial center of the
Northwest. The bankers of this city
appreciate the responsibility that this
position places upon them and are pre
pared to co-operate with officials of
the Treasury Department in their plans
to have the crops moved without -financial
The fact that Portland has gained
this position of superiority In the finan
cial world Is said to make this city
the logical location for one of the
regional reserve banks provided for
under the Owen-Glass currency bill
now pending before Congress. The bill
creates 12 such banks. It is certain
that one will be allotted to the Pa
cific Coast. ,
Portland Campaign Started.
The Portland Chamber of .Commerce
Is waging an active campaign to have
Portland named -as the regional bank
city of the Pacific Coast. It Is possible
that the Coast will be allotted two
regional - banks, In which event one
will be located in the Northwest and
the other in one of the California cities.
At any rate, the Chamber of Com
merce believes that Portland should
have one of the 12 banks.
With this end In view E." C. Giltner,
secretary of . the Chamber, has been
communicating with the Oregon Sena
tors and has received assurances from
Senator Lane that every effort Will be
made. In the event the currency bill
nasses In its present form, to have Port
land designated as one of the reserve
Mr. Wyld's mission to Washington
will have nothing to do with the plan
to secure one of the 13 banks for
Portland, but his presentation of Port
land's superior merits aS the leading
commercial city of the Northwest
undoubtedly will strengthen the city's
demands for recognition.
MERRILL GIRL IS KILLED

KLAMATH FALLS, Or., Aug. 6.
(Special.) Crushed by an overturned
car, Miss Gertrude Steeman died from
her injuries shortly after she was car

The party had been at a dance in

party at Malin, a few miles away, and
started about 1 A" M. The machine
must have been running at a high speed,
for In turning back into the road after
a swerve to the side the front wheels
locked and threw the car completely
over. Miss Steeman was pinned under
the steering gear. None of the others
Miss Steeman was the daughter of
Charles Steeman, a farmer living near
Merrill, and was IS years old.
