MESSAGES ARE EXCHANGED
Boston Attorneys of Opinion That
Issue "Would Be Legal Only on
Tote of People Decision
Though reinstated by the voters when
the commission form of city govern
ment was adopted, the Commission of
Public Docks Is without authority to
Issue bonds, according to an opinion
by Boston attorneys, and thereby a
stumbling-block has been enoountered
that may seriously interfere with plans
for waterfront Improvements.
The first intimation that the power
to Issue bonds Is vested only in the
City Council was contained In a tele
gram, received yesterday from Storey
Thorndyke, Palmer & Dodge, bond at
torneys of Boston, Mass., calling at
tention to the sections of the charter
dealing with bonds.
The Commission had retained the at
torneys to pass on the legality of a
proposed bond issue In the sum of
11.000.000. which was to have been sold
6eptember 4. The following telegram
"Has court construed section 92 of
charter amendments submitted May 3
being section 120 of Auditor's compil
ation? If not, we consider It unsafe to
approve dock bonds without vote of
people. Words 'heretofore authorized
nay Include authorisation by Dock
Commission. Nor does section 93 seem
to overcome difficulty."
Property Drali Held l'p.
On receipt of the telegram the Com
mission declined to proceed further in
the purchase of the William Held prop
erty, located between East Oak and
East Washington streets, which was
Selected as the site of the East Side
dock. Though the deed is in readiness,
negotiations will cease until It Is de
termined whether the Council can safe
guard the bond issue through the adop
tion of an ordinance. In that connec
tion the following telegram was sent
to Storey, Thorndyke, Palmer &
"Section 92 of charter amendments
submitted May 3 requires vote of peo
ple authorizing certain bond issues, but
expressly excepts therefrom bonds
"Section 93, submitted May 3, reads:
The Council of the City of Portland is
hereby authorized to issue and sell ad
ditional bonds heretofore authorized
and not sold under the provisions of
"Section 118 of the Auditor's com
pilation, passed by vote of the people In
1910, provides for issuance and sale of
"On June 2, 1913, the people amended
above section 93, continuing in exist
ence the Dock Commission under the
new charter, and re-enacted and re
authorized the bond issue In exact lan
guage of the above section 93.
"It seems that complete power Is
vested . in the City Council to issue
these bonds. Ordinances providing for
the sale of these bonds should .be
passed by the Dock Commission and the
Commission Meets Today.
The Commission adjourned until this
morning, by which time a reply from
Boston Is expected. City Attorney La
Hoc he and Fred W. Mulkey. chairman
of the Commission of Public Docks,
agreed that complete power is vested
In the Council to Issue the bonds. City
Attorney LaRoche summed up the sit
uation as follows:
"The people on May 3 amended the
charter, providing for the abolition of
all boards and commissions except the
Civil Service Commission and vesting
all the powers previously exercised by
these boards and commissions in the
Council, and in the same section which
provided for the abolition of these
boards and bodies there was a provision
to the effect that the Council could is
sue and sell the dock bonds previously
"On June 2, 1913. that section was
amended to continue in force the
Dock Commission, but through a cler
ical oversight the provision In the sec
tion authorizing the Council to issue
uid sell the dock bonds was not
changed, but was allowed to remain as
sunended on May 31.
"This creates a situation where the
Dock Commission possesses the powers
originally given to it by the amend
ment of the charter of 1910, with the
exception that the power to Issue and
sell bonds heretofore authorized and
not sold is vested in the Council.
"Section 92 contains the following
provision: "This provision shall not
apply to bonds heretofore authorized,'
and section 93 of the present charter,
submitted and passed by the people
May 3, in express terms, authorizes
the Council to Issue and sell addi
tional bonds heretofore authorized and
notT sold under the provisions of sec
tion 118. Section 118 Is a charter pro
vision, passed by the people in 1910.
that provides for the Issuance and
sale of these dock bonds by the Com
mission of Public Docks.
"On June 2, 1913, the people amended
the above section 93, continuing In
existence the Dock Commission under
the new charter, and re-enacted and
re-authorlzed the bond issue voted by
the people in 1910 In the exact lan
guage set out and contained In sec
tion 93 of the present charter.
larae Safe, m Roche Thinks.
"In view of this condition, the Com
mission of Public Docks telegraphed to
the Messrs. Storey, Thorndyke. Palmer
St Dodge, calling their attention to
these provisions of the present charter,
and it Is the opinion of Senator
Mulkey and of my department that
complete power at this time Is vested
In the Council to Issue these bonds,
and that all that is requisite to carry
this power Into full effect is the pas
sage of appropriate ordinances by the
Commission of Public Docks and by
the Council providing for their Issuance
It was ordered that the printing of
the bonds be held up temporarily, and
options on outside property will not
be taken advantage of. as the new
charter also prevents the Commission
from maintaining docks without the
confines of the municipality. At this
morning's meeting the matter will be
thoroughly gone -over and no doubt a
decision reached as to the action of
the Commission as a body and Indi

BITUMEN HELD EXCESSIVE
Commissioner Favors Eastern Meth
od of Submitting Sample Strip
of Paving to Test for One
Tear Under Observation.
Declaring that he has been accused
of favoring paving companies now
operating In Portland to the exclusion
of new concerns. City Commissioner
Dleck yesterday Issued a statement ex
plaining why he opposed permitting the
Llnden-Klbbe Construction Company
placing "bitucrete" paving In Grove
land Park Addition for experimental
The statement of Mr. Dieck follows:
"Referring to discussion in the Coun
cil regarding the admission of the
bitucrete' type of pavement to bidding
in the City of Portland, I wish to place
myself on record aa objecting against
this course of procedure.
"The investigations thus far made
by the department do not Justify a
final decision as to the suitability of
this type of wearing surface. At the
present time I have no distinct objec
tions to it other than this that the
pavement bas not been subjected to
conditions such as are found in Port
land. "About one month ago, upon' au
thority of the Council. Messrs. Dulla
nd Hardesty, or this department, were
delegated to make examination of this
type of pavement then being laid In
The Dalles, Or. Their independent re
ports show that the appearance of the
pavement, during its laying, was good
There has this 'date been filed with me
a report from the chief chemist, which
shows that the percentage of bitumen
contained in a sample submitted by
the Llnden-Klbbe Construction Com
pany from actual cut In the pavement
at The Dalles is about 15.35 per cent,
or about 5.85 per cent In excess of the
ordinary percentage permitted . in
bituminous wearing surface of like
character. I have not been convinced
as yet that the method of construction
of the pavement will result in a wear
ing surface of a uniform composition,
since the proportion of bitumen at any
point may not be controlled.
"In view of these facts and of the
lack of definite data on pavement of
this type during an entire season of
use, I object most vigorously to ex
perimentation by the city.
"I am of the opinion that the ad
mission of new types of paving to
bidding should be based upon sufficient
data as to wearing quality, freedom
from checking, etc., which may be de
termined under our local conditions
only after an observation extending
over at least one year.
"It is the practice in the large East
ern cities to require that sample strips
of pavement shall be laid In such
places as are suited to the type and
most convenient to observation by the
engineering department. It appears to
me that this Is a proper course of pro-.
cedure. and I recommend that, in fu
ture, no types of pavement upon which
we are not well informed as to wearing
quality, checking, etc., shall be laid
unless upon the basis of experimental
COUNTY MAY FORECLOSE
PAYMENT ON OLD POORFARM
Proposition of Buyer to Raise Mort
gage, Acre at Time, Rejected
Unless B. M. Lombard pays within
the next three or four days a note for
$35,000 together with Interest to date
on 3119,500, the amount he still owes on
the purchase price of the old County
Farm on the Canyon road, foreclosure
proceedings will be commenced against
him by the county. When he bought
the property four or nve years ago he
paid 335,000 cash, the purchase price
being $154,500, but, according to the
County Commissioners and A. E. Clark,
their legal representative in this mat
ter, this Is all he has ever paid either
In principal or interest.
Mr. Lombard has asked If he could
have the mortgage released aa acre
at a time on 81000 payments, saying It
was Impossible at present to get money
from the banks and that he wanted to
plat and sell off a portion of the farm,
in which there is 203 acres. His
proposition was declined and a letter
written to him saying that he need ex
pect no further consideration. Mr. Clark
said . the foreclosure suit will be in
stituted unless the first note of $35,000
and interest on the total amount to
date Is forthcoming within a few days.
According to the original agreement
one $35,000 ' note became due May S,
1913; a second for a similar amount
May 5, 1913, and the third, for $49,600.
May 5, 1914. All bear Interest at the
rate of per cent and are secured by
mortgage on the property.
The first note was extended a year
and the other two were to be extended
two years each on condition that Mr.
Lombard should take up the first one
when due and keep up the Interest.

SEATTLE, Wash, Aug. 28. (Special-)
Mary A. George. 1116 H Virginia
street, was getting dinner- today when
in walked her former husband, S. L.
Lovejoy, whom she had divorced In
1905. Thiukmg that Lovejoy and Mr.
George, whom she married last Tues
day, were friends, she told Lovejoy
that George was her husband. Love
Joy drew a revolver.
"Run." she said to George, and
She followed suit by going through
the window, Lovejoy after her. Love
Joy pulled the trigger five times, but
only one cartridge exploded, doing no
damage. She begged him not to shoot
her and he desisted.
Hearing the noise. Hazel Nash, who
lives upstairs, came down to see what
was the trouble, and when she saw,
went down Virginia street looking for
help. Help came and Lovejoy was dis
armed. Lovejoy was arrested and booked on
an open charg-e. He is a carpenter liv
ing at 314 North Seventy-second street.
One thing that helped to complicate
matters was that Mrs. George had been
keeping house for Lovejoy, her former
husband, for the last two years, and
only left when she was married se
cretly to George.
