MORNING OKEGOMAN. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1913.
Estimate Is Made That Five
Times as Many Names as
Necessary Will Appear.
100 COMMITTEES WILL AID
J. P. Stapleton, of Vancouver, Com'
ntcnts on Benefit Portland Will
Perlve From Having Access
to Vast Territory.
With the petitions to place on the
ballot in the November election the
measure for a bond issue to provide
funds for Multnomah County's share of
the proposed Interstate bridge, already
filled with three times as many names
as are actually necessary, and with
hundreds of other petitions to come in
this morning from business men and
women who have been circulating them,
it is thought that when the petition is
filed it will carry an array of names
more than five times as many as are
required to put iba measure on the
ballot. This is expected to have an
Important effect in the campaign that
will be carried on incessantly from the
time of filing the petition to the date
Speakers will go through the county
to tell the merits of the bridge project
and every organization in the county
will be given information concerning
it. Committees that have been ap
pointed by fraternal, civic, commercial
and social organizations to assist the
Interstate Bridge Committee in its
campaign number more than 100 and
new lists are being received dally.
Yaacoover Mn Active.
From Clarke County, where the bond
Issue for the Washington share of the
bridge has been passed, members of the
committee which conducted the cam
paign have volunteered their services
in the campaign in Multnomah County
and have placed at the disposal of the
Oregon committee all of the statistics
and other data which were used In
their own campaign.
J. P. Stapleton. of the Clarke County
committee, has spoken at several meet
ings in Multnomah County and will be
active in the campaign up to the time
"In Chehalls, Lewis. Pacific, Wahkia
kum, Cowlitz and Clarke Counties, in
Southwestern Washington, there are,
approximately, 150.000 people, and in
Clarke County alone' there is ap
proximately $15,000,000 worth of tax
able property." says Mr. Stapleton. "It
quite naturally follows that in all the
counties there is equally as large a
taxable valuation In property in pro
portion to the number of people as there
is in Clarke, which has a population of
Far-Rachlag Effect Predicted.
"I feel that a city never gets done
building and a city does not do its duty
to itself unless an opportunity like this
is taken advantage of. Portland has
built east, south and west, and there is
but one reason why It has not built
north, and that is because of the bar
rier of the Columbia River. Portland
will be m continuous city from the norm
bank of Hayden Island to Oregon City
and no one thing will bring this about
more quickly than the construction of
this bridge, and, with quick means of
communicating across the river, the
forward movement of Vancouver will
be identical with that of Portland and
the benefits will be felt all over Ore
gon and Washington.
"Of the vast territory which will be
tapped by this bridge, Vancouver alone
expends in Portland each year about
$3,000,000. and it occurs to me that it
is good business for the man In Port
land who wishes his business to expand
to take the step which will make avail
able to him so many more points."
LABEL F00LS CHINAMAN
Oriental Pays $80 for Packing Case
Thinking; It Contains Opium.
SYDNET. N. & W Oct. 4. (Special.)
Much amusement was caused at Mas
terton the other day at the way in
which a Chinese named Ah Fong over
reached himself in his greed.
Ah Fong was watching the removal
from a lorry of a consignment of mis
cellaneous articles destined for auction
rooms, when, pointing to a wooden
case which was being carried inside,
he Inquired in an excited tone, "How
"I sell him tomorrow," replied the
"No time tomoller." answered Ah
.Fong. "Me buy now." and eventually
he secured the case for $80.
In half an hour the Celestial re
turned. For a time he was unable to
speak for agitation.
The outcome was ludicrous. It ap
pears that the case bore an inscription
in Chinese stattng that it contained a
false bottom concealing $500 worth of
When Ah Fong opened the case he
found another label at the bottom,
which read: 'Better luck next time."

Judge Sentences Man for Illegal Use
Wlien E. H. Shafer pleaded guilty to
unlawfully receiving a concession in
respect to the transportation of pas
sengers he gave Judge McGinn the cue
for a lecture on the proper and im
proper conduct of married men. In
stead of receiving leniency, as the pris

he was sentenced to pay a fine of $200
or serve a sentence of 100 days.
Shafer while employed by the O.-W.
