ARLINGTON HAS TWO DAYS
port of their findings on a trip to Se
attle Saturday and Sunday.
The passage of an ordinance requir
ing muzzling of all dogs in Portland
was held up last week until the Seat
tle system could be investigated. As a
result of the findings it is likely the
Council, at its meeting tomorrow, will
vote on an ordinance prepared by
Commissioner Dieck requiring muzz
ling of all dogs.
It is said that in Seattle there is no
dog muzzling ordinance, but there is
a state law requiring muzzling. "The
state law," said Commissioner Daly,
"Is Indefinite. A dog can wear a
muzzle on his tail or a rope around his
nose and he comes within the muzz

Daily letters coming in to the Com
mercial Club indicate that Multnomah
County is to have many rivals in the
field in the observance of "'Good
Roads" day. April 25.
Commercial Clubs, especially in vari
ous cities, are backing the movement,
and Mayors of many of the cities have
issued proclamations calling upon the
citizens to join in the work Saturday.
Following excerpts from a few of the
letters received at the Commercial Club
indicate the extent of the Interest that
is being taken in cities in Various parts
of the state:
Sllvertom Commercial Club.
"In answer to your letter of the 15th
will say that Silverton is certainly go
ing to observe "Good Roads" day, April
l'o. . We are matting cla Dora te prepara
tions to get everybody out and not
only do some practical work, but work
up some good roads enthusiasm."
Hfppner Commercial - Club.
"April 25, 'Good Roads' day, will be
declared a holiday in Heppner.- All
business of every kind will close and
everybody, both men and women, will
be on the road with rake, pick and
Mosler Commercial Club.
"The same day your letter came
about the 'Good Roads' day programme
I picked up our local paper and found
that the subject was broached in that,
-so there will be something doing on
April 25. I would like to see 100 of
the 2000 men that are going to work
on the Columbia River highway come
up to Mosier and view a section of the
legitimate route by which the high
way should go from Hood River to
The Dalles through Mosier instead of
taking it to the foot of Mount Hood,
and back again before reaching The
Dalles. It is not giving Mosier a show
at all and we could show you our sec
tion . of it that has been already com
pleted, over some of which I myself
have helped with pick and shovel, and
last year we graveled it with the tail
ings of the Mosier rockcrusher, which
is pouring out tons of the finest sur
facing for roads anyone ould wish to
use. It would be a great mistake to
let it go all over creation when there
is a straight route along the river and
some of the most beautiful scenery on
the whole route lies right near Mosier.
yes We will observe 'Good Roads'
St. Pant Commercial Club.
"Bes to sav we are making prepara
tion for repairing a short stretch of
road leading out of town to the west.
JN'o definite Arrangements have been
made as yet, but you may be assured
that we will observe 'Good Roads' day
in a fitting manner." -Enterprise
"I have already taken the matter up
with the Citv-Council and Mayor in
regard to the observance of a road day
in and around Enterprise. The day
has not yet been named, but I am quite
sure that it will not be on April 25,- as
that date is Saturday and the most
important trade day in a small town.
The merchants will not agree to give
over that day to road work, and most
of the farmers want to come to town
on that day also.
"The Mayor has promised to con
sult with the City Council Monday
evening, next, and then definitely set
"It is proposed to have the county
road overseer go over each and every
road leading into Enterprise with some
individual interested in the improve
ment of that particular road, and for
mulate definite plans as to where and
what kind of work shall be done. On
the day prior to the date every man
will be assigned to a certain place on
the road and certain work laid out.
Sutherlin Commercial Club.
"As usual Sutherlin is keeping
abreast with the rest of Oregon along
the lines of development and especially
in "that of good roads.
"The populace has joined hands to
turn out on April 85 and put in a good
day's work on the roads, and we look
for favorable result therefrom. There
is no more, important movement be
fore the people of Oregon today than
that of good roads, and Sutherlin will
continue to work to that end long
after April 25."
Arlington Commercial Club.
"The Mayor of Arlington had de
clared April a a holiday for the pur.
pose of having all that could work on
the roads of the county. A large sum
ber of the citizens turned out on that
day and a lot of bad road was put in
"It is our intention to observe the
state 'Good Roads' day also, and I feel
sure that I will be able to report good
Monmouth Commercial Club.
"The Mayor of Monmouth has issued
a proclamation asking .every citizen to
take an active part in building roads
on April 5, and a committee has been
appointed to solicit and urge that this
be carried out, and I believe much im
provement will be the result.
criticism was without reasonable
grounds inasmuch as they went at
their own expense and not at the ex-
ense of the city.

City Auditor Estimates That Expense
Will Be $ 10,000, and Vote Mast Be
Within 25 Days of Filing.
If plans outlined yesterday by Buck
Keith to City Auditor Barbur are car
ried out the petitions said to have been
signed recently for the recall of Mayor
Albee and City Commissioners Brew
ster and . deck will be riled st that a
special election will have to be called.
This will cost the city about $16,000.
It had been said that the petitions
would be filed yesterday so that the
election would be held in conjunction
with the state primary election. May
15, but it was said by Keith, who was
in charge of the petition circulation.
that it was the plan of those behind
the move, who are still unknown to the
public, to hold the petitions until a
special election can be called.
City Auditor Barbur got an opinion
from City Attorney La Roc he yesterday
to the effect that a recall election must
be called within 25 days of the tiling
of the petition. Five days from the
date of the filing Is reserved for the
official against whom the recall is di
rected to resign. The election cannot
be called within that five days, but
must be called within 20 days there
If the recall should be held in con-
unction with the primary election the
cost would be $3000 or $4000 less than
at a special election. The handling of
the affair would be difficult, however.
because there would be four separate
ballots to be cast by each voter.
RED L. OLSON IS IN RACE
Candidate for Circuit Judgeship An
Fred L. Olson, Republican candidate
for the nomination of Circuit Judge,
Department 6, has Issued the following
statement of his platform:
"In again announcing myself as a
candidate for public office, I do so
with full and lasting appreciation to
the people for the many times that
they have so loyally supported me, es
peclally in my last campaign for the of
fice of Municipal Judge, when the peo
pie by a large plurality selected me as
their choice, but the Mayor and the
Commissioners ruled otherwise. I
have always felt and shall always feel
that the people's struggle for that
which is right is my struggle, and that
am only an incident in their daily
efforts to make conditions (judicial as
well as otherwise) better for all. "With
apology to none, I say without fear of
successful contradiction that there is
no branch of our Government that
needs more a thorough housecleaning
than our judiciary.
"In my humble opinion this will not
come until the people place a premium
on honesty, rather than on cleverness
and brilliancy. The path that leads to
sorrow, disappointment, dishonor and
disgrace Is strewn with the wreckage
of human souls that were clever and
brilliant. The honest man and women
too often in this great struggle for
worldly preferment plod alone and too
often unknown. To me they are the
great men and women and the fore
most in the everyday struggle for jus
tlce and better conditions for all. Is
it not high time that our Judges (mere
human beings) unload the overweight
of their assumption of greatness and
make It their first and serious duty
to see that the less fortunate indi
vidual has an equal opportunity in
the judicial adjustment of his sacred
rights, as well as the more mighty?
It is not favors nor sympathy that the
little fellow needs or wants, but jus
tlce. Can any judge or layman' hon
estly say that he is entitled to less?
It I am nominated and elected to this
most honorable office, I shall ever
trust and hope that for the mistakes
and blunders that I shall make it will
be said that my mistakes and blunders
were of judgment and not of heart-"

Small Keepers Cry "Bankruptcy"

ly No Vote Is Taken.
Small "independent" grocers and
"association" grocers yesterday had a
stormy hearing before the City Coun
cil, at the second public conference on
the proposed "Sunday closing" ordi
nance to regulate grocery stores.
Heated arguments, personalities, accu
sations and pleas on the part of the
opposing speakers brought cheers,
hoots and hisses from the crowd of 200
or 400 assembled in the Council cham
ber during the two hours they re
Inasmuch as the meeting was in
formal,, the ordinance was- not -voted
on and . no expression .was given by
the Commissioners as to how they
stood.- It possibly will come up for
vote at the regular' Council meeting
tomorrow. If not then, it may come
up at the regular r rlday meeting.
The fight seemed to be between
mall, struggling concerns, which do
not belong to the Retail Grocers' As
sociation, and larger concerns which
do belong to that organization. There
were, however, some grocers present
who belong to the organization and
yet who favor Sunday opening, while
some on the ot. cr side favor closing.
Each Side Heard.
J. E. Malley, president- of the asso-
iation, led the faction supporting the
ordinance, while II. w. ' Kent ' repre.
ented the opposition. For two hours
they called upon their respective cli
nts to speak, -tne Council first hear
ing a speaker against the measure
and then one favoring it.
This fight is not being promoted
by the Retail Grocers Association,
declared Mr. .Maney. but that asso-
ation favors its passage. The gro
eery business is difilcult. When we
put in 10 or lit hours a day for six
days in the week we are doing all the
public should expect.
"This ordinance is a scheme of this
association to drive the small. Inde
pendent man out of business, de
clared II. V. Kent. Tt is selfishness
on the part of the large merchant. It
is the work of a crowd of scheming
politicians. The passage of this ordi
nance will entail positive distress, be
cause it will put many small people
out or business.
"I'm one of them," said J. Klter.
Sunday opening keeps me in busi
ness. It would be criminal to drive
he people out of business who are
willing to spend their oundays making
enough money to keep their heads
'Many a Sunday dinner, would be
spoiled if it wasn't for the little cor
ner grocery being open," asserted Mrs,
V. J. King, of Montavilla. "It is a
convenience to our trade to be open

me out of business. 1 do $5 worth of
business on week days and $10 on

I am a widow and have a child at
home," said Mrs. E. O'Nell, a South
Portland grocer. "I want to have one
day a week with my child. I am forced
to keep open If my competitors do.
I am not losing a cent by closing
on Sunday," declared George S. Lewis.
I ve tried both ways and find it pays
to rest on Sunday."
"We are only human, said F. E.
Foote. "Why should we not be al
lowed to enjoy our Sundays with our
families and friends? We can't any
of us do it unless we all do."
Men here are saying they don't have
to open Sundays," aaid W. V. McCor
mick. "They have grown to the point
where they are Independent of that
struggle which we small, growing con
cerns are facing."
Hisses greeted Ben A. Bellamy, who
appeared to be at "outs" with many
of the other concerns. Mayor Albee
had to-call the crowd to order by rap
ping heavily with his gavel.

lamy. "My clerks are willing to take
turns working Sundays. They are glad
to do it, because it means money for

"Sunday closing won't put anyone out
of business." asserted George Hocken
yoa. "If we are all open the same length
of time we all have a fair chance at
the business. So much will be pur
chased In a week, whether stores are
open or closed."

If that's all his business amounts
to he ought to go out of business and
work for someone for $10 a week," de
clared H. C. Candall.
"The ice cream trust is back of this
ordinance," declared J. W. Caldwell.
The ordinance permits the sale of ice
cream, tobacco and. soft drinks. Is it
any worse crime to sell these things
than it is to sell a can of corn or a
loaf of bread? Nineteen out of 20 per
sons buy on -Sunday because they for
get to buy on Saturday. The 20th per

ing on behalf of the Fair Association,
contended that the act does not pro
vide that the Land Products Show
should have any of the fund, fut in
vited the show to consolidatewith the
fair in maklnir this display.
C. C. Chapman and R. W. Raymond,
renresentliiK the Land Products fahow,
advised the Commissioners that it was
through the Influence of representa
lives of their organization the bill was
passed, and admendments made the
last day of the session were responsi
ble for the bill being hurried through
in its present form, rather than held
up until it could be rewritten in less
"The intention of the Legislature,
however, was to provide us with funds
for the holding of this Land Products
Show," urged Mr. Chapman.
The law provides that a tax of one
twentieth of a mill should be raised in
each county for livestock and agricul
tural fairs and displays, with the pro
vision that no county should raise more
than $10,000. One section of the law
provides that $5000 of the amount
raised in Multnomah County shall,
upon request, be set aside to the Pa
cific International Livestock Associa
tion. This leaves $5000, which, with
$3000 provided for the Fair Association
by the budget leaves $8000.
Mr. Raymond recommended that the
$8000 be divided equally between the
two organizations, and promised If this
was done the merchants of the city
would double or treble it to meet the
expenses of the exhibition.
'We cannot accept the Invitation ot
the Fair Association to come with, them

Mr. Chapman. "One is a County Fair
