Election Will Be Tonight.
Records of tremendous developments
in municipal improvement in the clues
of the Northwest were recited yester
day In the rollcall at the opening ses
sion of the second annual convention
of the League of Pacific Northwest
Municipalities in the greenroom of the
Portland Commercial Club. As the
name of each city in the league was
called by the secretary, one of the dele
gates from that city would arise and
outline briefly the recent work that
had been done for municipal better
ment. Through the cities of Oregon, "Wash
ington and Idaho the rollcall ran, rang
ing from cities of metropolitan propor
tions to cities of S00O inhabitants. In
variably the response of the delegate
added a striking bit of municipal
achievement to the growing story of
how the Northwest communities have
been progressing in the past year.
Hundreds of miles of paving, hun
dreds of miles of water mains, number
less acres of parks, development of
community centers and municipal la
bor exchanges, campaigns to rear
range the whole system of city gov
eminent, as was done in Portland this
year: all of these features and many
others entered Into the total story of
progress told in the rollcall.
Score of Engineers Attend.
A score or more of City Engineers,
half a dozen Mayors and Commission
ers from cities where that form of gov
eminent prevails. City Recorders, City
Health Officers, City Attorneys and
City Market Inspectors from all over
the Northwest were in the assembly
at the opening of the convention.
Mayor Albee made the address of
welcome and Miles C. Moore, of Walla
Walla, president of the - league, re'
"While we are considering the af
fairs of communities of these three
states, we are directing - to a certain
extent the destinies of a great empire,"
S.- B. L. Penrose, president of Whit
man College, In characterizing the
work of tbe league said: "The geo
graphic, social and economic unity of
the three states prompts this organiza
tion, which is working toward the
unification of all matters pertaining
to the common good.'
The rollcall consumed the entire
morning session, after the opening ad
dresses and was continued into the
later session, which was called in hall
II, of the Portland Library, after an
intermission, during which the dele
gates were entertained at a luncheon
of the Portland Ad Club. The remain

Deputy Police Commissioner Dough
erty late tonight on a charge of felo
nious assault; as the result of a story
told to the police by Lucille Singleton,
a 19-year-old Bryn Mawr student,
daughter of a Texas mineowner.
Miss Singleton told the detectives,
according to Dougherty, that she had
been stabbed by a man to whom she
alluded as "Crele;hton," her companion
In the car. Trayer prior to this had
reported, said Dougherty, that Miss
Singleton told him she was not stabbed
and that in reply to a question whether
she knew Oelrlchs, she replied she did
not. The machine that met with acci

crashing into a tree, belonged to Oel

Municipal ownership of railways was
assailed by Judge D. W. Stanrod, of
Boise, a member of the State Commis
sion of Public Utilities, in an address
before the Northwestern League of
Municipalities yesterday, in which he
made incidental assaults upon the ten
dency o American cities to issue bonds
for all purposes and upon the prevail
ing atmosphere of so-called "progres
sivism" apparent in the political af
fairs of the present day.
TJnder our form of government." he
declared, "it is known that the city and
state pay more for service than any
other employers, not because of high
sa'arlcs, but because of poor service.
The city and state spend much of their
means educating their servants to ef
ficiency and Just as they become well
trained there is a change and the
training has to be done over again at
the same expense. Such a system
does not attract our best men and we
are constantly dinning In the ears of
our sons to avoid political positions as
"To rne one of the most repugnant
aspects of municipal ownership of any
nature, and especially the ownership
of railways, because of the great num
bers employed, is the increase in the
army of officials. Today as never be
fore we are Inveighing against th
tendencies of our lawmaking bodies to
establish new offices.
Political Aspect Feared.
"An organization of whatever calling
that once becomes ensconced y the
control of municipally owned property,
with Its hangers-on, its employes, its
satellites, will be hard to dislodge. The
political aspect of government owner
ship is more to be reckoned with than
the economic one and there lurk within
it dangers more formidable to our free
institutions than can be computed in
dollars and cents.
The safest method of regulating
public utilities without entering upon
the experiment of government or mu
nicipal ownership, he declared to be
the mediation of a, third party between
the public and the utilities corporation,
This metnod or dealing with the prob
lem, he pointed out, is being put into
effect in the Interstate railway com
mission, the public utilities commis
sions and similar bodies which have
come into being in the United States
comparatively recently. Until this
method of dealing with the matter has
had a complete test, he held that it is
dangerous and Ill-advised to attempt
the municipal ownership method. -
Speaking of the heavy Issuing of
bonds by municipalities in the United
States, Judge Stanrod declared that he
had no patience with the idea that for
everything desired the city should im
mediately assume a bonded indebted
New Problems to Came.

without burdening them In advance,
while public economy Is denned as

been ignored both In this country and
in tne united Kingdom.
After making some study of this

that the only remedy is absolute re
Judge Stanrod urged that In the
present "progressive" movement the
people should be careful about relln

seem to promise well.

LENIENCY IS SHOWN TWO
Court Permits Paroled 31en to Go to

L. W. Brightman and Stanley Fuch
were paroled yesterday and will be re
turned to their homes In Sandusky, O.,
and Julian, Cal., respectively.
Brightman pleaded guilty to forgery
and was sentenced to serve from two
to 20 years. He was later paroled by
Judge Cleeton, before whom he pleaded
guilty, but will be detained by the
Sheriff until his father forwards trans
portation for his return to his home.
The mother of Stanley Fuch came up
from California and will take her son
home with her.
Fuch was sentenced to the reform
school by Judge Gatens, but paroled to
Peter Mcintosh, chief probation officer,
for one year. Mr. Mcintosh will per

constitutes a corroboration of their
contention that Rewick is one of the
most dangerous real estate swindlers
who has ever found himself in the toils
of the law.
Rewick's "system, according to
Powell and Dunlap, depended for its
successful operation entirely on mak
ing auick deals, and in transferring
the scene of his activities frequently.
Rewick used what is known to con
fidence men as the rush act," said
Detective Powell at the Imperial yes
terday, "and we have Just found among
his Dapers a large bundle of type
written letters, of two forms, both of
which show his system to a nicety."
The following Is a copy of one of
the letters, which is dated simply
"City," and which Powell says Rewick
sent out In large numbers, soon after
entering a new community, in answer
to want ads which he found in tbe

forcible way hat sentences may be im
