Mayor to Call Session to Con
sider Revoking Richards'
License, Says Secretary.'
ATbee Intends to Protect Young Men
and Women by Shutting Up All
Places Violating Laws, As
serts W. II. Warren.
A special session of the City Council
will be called to hear the evidence of
the officers who raided Richards' Grill
Saturday night, with the view of de-
"termining whether the grill's city
' liquor license shall be revoked, said W,
H. "Warren, secretary to Mayor Albee,
"Mr. Richards possesses a liquor li
cense, granted by the Council body,
and he will be cited' to appear and
show cause why it should not be re
voked," said Mr. Warren.
"While the charge against Steward
6mith, of the grill, will have to be dis
missed, because the ordinance under
which he was sought to be prosecuted
was found to have been repealed by
the so-called model liquor license law,
the raid Saturday has sufficed to
create wide interest in what is alleged
by several persons to be the worst dive
In Portland.
Steward's Opinion Told.
"Steward Smith, so far as I have been
able to ascertain, is the only man in the
city who admits that Richards' is con
ducted 'more strictly' than other es
tablishments in Portland. If he ie cor

clean-up lines. As a matter of fact, I
have reports that incline me to the
belief that Mr. Smith is mistaken. The

Struggle Tor Speakership Less Ad
vaneed, Though Ben Selling, AI
. len Eaton and Others Are
Being Mentioned.
Though it will be nearly seven
months before the next Legislature
convenes, the date set by law being the
second Monday in January, the presi
dency of the Senate and speakership of
the House are already objects of con
siderable interest to legislators and
prospective legislators.
The next Legislature is certain to be
overwhelmingly Republican. Both the
president of the Senate and the speaker
of the House will be members of that
party. In fact, the personality of the
candidates and the geography of the
situation will cut a much larger figure
in the race than party lines, for Re
publicans will so dominate the Legis
lative Assembly that no member of a
minority party would have a chance.
Perkins First to Announce.
The first legislator formally to shy
his hat into the ring as a candidate
for either place is Dr. T. L. Perkins, of
Portland, one of the holdover Senators
from Multnomah County. Dr. Per
kins announced yesterday that he will
run for president of the Senate and de
clared that he already has many
pledges of support. Dan J. Malarkey,
also of Multnomah county, was presi

manufacture of leather goods, and 240
pounds of dried eel meat, used as
chicken feed.
The process has been worked out by
Edward Reimers and James P. Kelly,
and the plant is operated under their
direction. Fishermen gather the eels
from the pools In the rocks around the
falls with dip-nets.
The eels are taken to the plant on
the banks of the river and placed in a
vat and cooked. After the eels have
beea cooked for a short time the oil
rises to the surface and is drained off
into a barrel. The solid matter is
pressed and then ground, more oil bo
ins derived. From the grinders the
eels, now almost powdered, are placed
in the driers. The solid matter is put
in sacks and finds a ready market with
farmers and poultrymen.
Mr. Kelly has secured the co-opera
tion of the Government and has sent his
products to Federal chemists for analysis.
The work this year is largely an
experiment. At first the two men con
fined their efforts to work on a small

find a commercial use for eels ana iruit

and he is not a candidate for re-election.
Dr. Perkins was chairman of the Sen
ate ways and means committee at the
last session. He is at present work
ing with other holdover Senators from
Multnomah County on a plan to reduce
state expenses by eliminating and con
solidating various state commissions.
As member of a Senate committee of
which Senator Day is chairman he is
also gathering data and statistics com

Portland public schools with the cost
of administration in other cities of the
same relative size, to be incorporated

Open Contest Announced.
I am entering the race at this time,
said Dr. Perkins yesterday, "because I
wish the contest to be an open one, and
feel that there is nothing to be gained
by withholding my announcement to
the last moment. Being a holdover
Senator and not having to run for re
election this year, I also feel that by
definitely announcing my aspiration for
the Presidency of the Senate now, I
will be able to devote more of my time
to working for the success of the entire
Republican ticket, from United States
Senator and Governor down the list, in
the coming campaign. I am going to
work a lot harder for that than for my
own candidacy."
There are at least two other prospec
tive candidates for president of the
Senate. One is W. Lair Thompson, of
Lakeview, holdover Senator from Crook,
Klamath and Lake counties. Senator
Thompson is serving his second term in
the Senate, and prior to being elected
Senator he was in the lower house. He
was a member of the important com
mittees on irrigation and judiciary in
the 1913 session. Though he has not
announced his candidacy, he is expected
to do so before long.
Dr. YV. D. Wood Is Possibility.
The other Senator regarded as a prob
able candidate is Dr. W. D. Wood, of
Hillsboro, holdover Senator from Wash
ington County. Dr. Wood was chair
man of the committee on counties at
the last session.
As 15 new Senators are to be elected
next November, there may be other en
tries in the list after the Fal election.
There is some talk that W. A Dimick,
of Oregon City, who is a candidate for
re-election, will decide to get in the
As all 60 members of the lower house
are to be elected next November, the

name of Ben Selling, of Portland, is
prominently mentioned. Mr. Selling
was president of the Senate several
years ago.

Proposed Changes Provide for System

Dependa en Trafflr.
Following completion yesterday by
City Engineer Duter of a report and
recommendation for a new classifica
tion of paving in Portland, the way
was opened for early Inauguration of
proceedings for paving projects in va
rious parts of the city, a largo num
ber of which have been held up for
sever! months pending the comple
tion of this report.
Engineer Dater referred his report
to City Commissioner Dleck. If he
approves the recommendation, they
can be put into use within a short
time. In hope of being able to rush
through the paving projects which
have been held up. Engineer Dater has
sent men over the various, streets to
be Improved to require the Installation
of all retaining walls, drain pipe con
nections and other Improvements so
that there will be no paving delays.
Under the new classification of pave
ments there is no great difference from
the previous classification. One change
is the placing of asphaltic concrete
pavement in competition with bltu
llthic and standard asphalt on all pro
posed improvements. Under the old
plnn asphaltlc concrete was allowed
to cotnoote with tho omen only In
certain specltlo casta.
The type of pavement to be ud In
the various districts la to be determined
by an established sratem. Tbe as
sessed valuation of the abuttlna prop
erty and the amount of trafrlo whl h is
liable to pass along the street will be
used In determining the type of pave
ttifnt to be used.
For' a street along which the as
sessed values of property Is low and on
which the traffio Is not heavy the
cheaper types of paving will be per
mitted, lbs quality and cost of pave
ment will be graduated upward aa the
assessed values are greater and the
traffic heavier.
