Council Divided on Question of
" Following Efficiency Code's
MAYOR WOULD KEEP FAITH
Deadlock Iteaclicd When Mr. Brew
ster Asks for $25 Kise for Sec
retary Only Heavy Trim Is
In Market Estimate.
Salary increases for city employes is
to be one of the principal points of
contention by the City Council aurins
consideration of the budget of expenses
fnr- the various departments for 1916
This was apparent yesterday when the
Council had the budget prepared by
Commissioner Bigelow under discus
Mr. Bigelow recommended no salary
increases In spite of the fact that the
efficiency code under which all em
ployes are working provides for raises
as a reward for meritorious service
during the past year. The coae which
was adooted the first or tnis year pro
vide3 an. increase of from $5 to 110
each six months for each employe hav
lng no demerit marks until .the maxi
mum salary for the position is reached.
There are many employes in various.
departments who are entitled to in
creases under the code, but who are not
recommended for increases. Many of
these employes had their salaries cut
from 15 to $25 a month when the code
was adopted, with the understanding
that they would be increased as their
efficiency ratings warranted.
Mayor Would Keep Faith.
When the budget committee took up
the question of salaries in Mr. Bige
low's department Mayor Albee declared
that he believed the employes who have
maintained the required ratings should
tret the rises or reward. "I think when
the city made an agreement with the
employes to raise them if they main
tained an efficient standing. It should
be good for Its word," said Mayor
City Auditor Barbur, who Is a mem
ber of the budget committee, declared
that he would vote against increasing
the salary of any employe who is get
ting 9100 a month or better excepting
under unusual conditions. Other mem
bers of the committee favored in
creases, but not for all employes who
are entitled to it under the efficiency
code. Mayor Albee has recommended
Increases for all In his department who
have sufficient ratings.
The question of the standing of the
efficiency code was not settled yester
day. It is expected, however, that be
for the budget revision is completed
some one of the Commissioners will
have Introduced an ordinance doing
away with the system.
Ueadloclc Is Encountered. -
Increases of the salaries of Individ
uals In the service not rated under the
efficiency code caused some little trou
ble yesterday. . Commissioner Brewster
recommended an Increase of 25 a
month for his private secretary. Miss
Margaret White. Auditor Barbur and
Commissioners Daly and Bigelow op
posed it, while Mayor Albee and Com
missioners Brewster and Dieck favored
the increase. This made a deadlock
and the question was passed along
In considering the budget yesterday
the Commlslon cut out a number of
small items. The largest cut was in
the public market estimate in which a
proposed appropriation for "construc
tion" amounting to 6000 was cut down
to (1600. Cuts at yesterday's session
of ths committee aggregated less than
$3000. At a meeting today a number
of special appropriations will be con
sidered and some deep cuts are ex-peoted.
NEW ZEALAND AIDS BRITAIN
Visitor In Portland Says Volunteers
New Zealand is responding to the
call for aid from the mother country,
so many "volunteers having offered
themselves that the officers are able to
"pick" their men, according to C. L.
Bradley, of Christ Church, who is in
Portland with Mrs. Bradley at Hotel
Perkins while attending to the settle
ment of an estate near Walla Walla.
The spirit of patriotism is every
where seen In New Zealand, says Sir.
Bradley, who declares that large sums
are being raised for the support of
Great Britain. He told of a little lad
in Christ Church who offered all he
had, a pet lamb, to be auctioned for
the war fund. The lamb brought 100
pounds, and then was returned to the
little fellow by the purchaser.
German trade, which' has- been a
great factor of late years, has been
boycotted in New Zealand, asserts Mr.
Bradley. Yet he believes there is lit
tle antagonism felt in New Zealand to
ward the German people. Food prices
remain the same as they were before
the war. says Mr. Bradley, , for imme
diately upon its declaration the terri
torial government sent out a strict
warning to shopkeepers not to raise
the prices on their wares.
REFUSE DUMPED IN GULCH
forty Tons of Garbage Disposed Of
Under Mr. Daly's, Plan.
Dumping of garbage in Marquam
Gulch In accordance with the new sys
tem arranged by City Commissioner
Daly was started yesterday. Twenty
eight wagons dumped about 40 tons
of garbage in the gulch. This was
sprayed with carbolic acid and will be
covered with dirt. Scrapers were put
to work covering the refuse when the
dumping was finished.
A large chute has been constructed
from the edge of Terwilliger boule
vard, about 1000 feet south of the
south end of Sixth street, and the
wagons dump directly into this. The
garbage shoots down this a distance
of so feet into the bottom of the
The diverting of the 40 tons of gar
bage to the gulch resulted in a big re
duction of the amount of garbage con
sumed at the incinerator. For the first
time In many months the incinerator
was operated below Its full capacity.
LECTURE ON BURMA HEARD

"Burma, Its People and Religion.
was the subject chosen by James Irv
ing Crabbe for his lecture in room A
of the Public Library Sunday night, un
der the auspices of the Portland Ration
alist Society. The lecture was attended
by about 100. Professor Crabbe spoke
or the topography --of Burma, of the
quaint, lazy little Burmese people, their
clothes, food, education, religion, their
marriage and divorce pacts. He also
told of the many kinds . of animals
which pester the people and of the ani
mals that help them. The elephant.
Professor Crabbe said, ran ..the saw
mills, and was -used in' the place of
automobiles, omnibuses and nursegirls.
"While the Burmese people do not
worship Buddah, they live up to, so
far as possible, the code of morals
which he laid down," he said. "The
Buddhist religion consists of ten com
mandments, the first of which is "Thou
shalt not kill any living thing." Budd
hists do not believe in bloodshed, and
never go to war. " Their -meat foods are
not eaten until the animal dies . a

KITTY FRANCIS AMUSES
STAR COMUOIEXXG AT EMPRESS
AXD DOZEJI GIKS ARE GAY.
Headline Is Likened to Marie Lloyd
as Entertainer Other Acta ol
Merry Show Win Laughs.
Kitty Francis is a plump edi
tion of Marie Lloyd In so far as voice
and figure -are- concerned, and' her
wit. and humor, manufactured right on
the spot, headline the Marcus Loew
Lmpress bill - riotously well.
Kitty appears aa Mrs. OMalley, who
has social longings and plebeian likings
fane has a recaption at -he.- home ana
her son, knowing that none of the in
vited Vanderbilts, Stuyvesant Fishes
and Goulds would turn up, asks a dozen
suffragettes to pose as guests at the
party. Mrs. OMalley, gowned In Irish
green with an ornate red tunic, re
ceives her guests in great style. She
picks a row with, one because sae
wears an orange - gown, and makes
gentle references to the ancestry of
her aristocratic guests.
The girls, a dozen it seems, wear
smart frocks and have an ensemble
dance that is a beautiful Virginia reel.
They "crack the whip" as a finale, with
Kitty almost falling over her own
short length as she brings lin t hn Anrt
of the long winding chain. Truly Kitty
i a. pieaaing comedienne.
A duo' of entertainers who eclipse
anything In their line we've had lately
is the Calts brothers Joe. . full size,
and Lew, a midget. Both are wizardR
in rapid-fire: terpsichore. and are the
jasi cry in sartorial perfection. They
have one specialty in which , their
figures and feet blend so perfectly that
it seems as if only one -man is dancing.
An act that brings a lot of lausrhs is
presented by Jessie Morris, shapely and
. ami jacK Jeasiey. . They hang
their patter on a manicure shop.' with
songs and dances to enliven things.
Beasley's exclamatory references to th
deity might be omitted.
J. Alfred Wilson and John E. Wilson
are negro comedians, who sing excep
tionally well and' should offer more
vocal numbers and not. so much mo
notonous foolery in their act. One of
the twain gives, a darkey minister imi
tation" that provokes merriment.
Oddone, accordionist, has a novelty
offering made - by attaching a set of
electric bells to his accordion. The ef
fect is delightful and since Oddone
plays well, the act goes nicely.
Opening the bill is a corking good
acrobatic display on bicycles by Billy
Montrose and Blossom Svdell. who also
sing and dance well. Montrose somer
saults from the ground through a hoop,
skips rope lying down and both , pre
ent amazing tricks on the wheel.

his listeners last night, "for I .was in
