Increased salaries for firemen were
provided for yesterday by the City Com-,
mission sitting as a budget committee,
while the higher-ups in the bureau saw
their proposed salary increases clipped
off. The Commission, controlled In this
case by Commissioners Bigelow and
Daly and City Auditor Barbur, set the
general rule of granting no increases
to men now receiving 1100 a month or
more, though in a few cases Commis
sioner Bigelow made exceptions and
voted with Mayor Albee and Commis
sioners Dieck and Brewster for in
creases to certain members of the bu
reau who now receive more than $100
a month.
Fire Chief Do well was refusedan in
crease of 1120 a year; Assistant Chief
Laudenklos an equal amount; battalion
chiefs were denied proposed increases
aggregating $360 & year, and others
above the rank of lieutenant were
treated similarly. Six engineers in the
bureau were allowed increases of $100
a year each: five engineers were al
lowed increases aggregating $250; six
stokers were increased in the aggre
gate $420 a year; 18 lieutenants got in
creases aggregating $1080 a year; 30
hoeemen aggregated $2700 a year in
crease; 52 other hosemen of a different
rank aggregated $1560 increases, and
40 other hosemen, truckmen and other
employes were granted Increases aggre
gating $3600. The increases aggre
gated in all $10,600 for a year.
Increases in the salaries of firemen
is provided in the rules under which
they are employed." They are increased
year by year until they reach a maxi
mum of $1200 a year or $100 a month.
The budget committee yesterday went
down the line with cuts in the fire
bureau estimates for supplies, mate
rials and proposed special appropria
tions. An item of $7000 proposed for
painting 13 fire stations was trimmed
to $3000; $1131 was trimmed off esti
mates for installing new street fire
alarm semaphores; $1000 for the pur
chase of a fire station site in the Wood
stock district; $800 from the estimate
for new fire alarm boxes, and $1000
for the estimate for horseshoeing.
The Commission today will take up
the health bureau budget. Estimates
of expenditures for this bureau have
been held down to the bone, according
to City Health Officer Marcellus.

That the death of "Winifred Griffin.
8-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Drew Griffin, of Eugene, in an auto

ot" elevator Inspection in Portland and
the need of changes in the elevator or
dinances, Is the assertion of Building
Inspector Plummer, who (as made an
investigation of this and other acci
dents of a similar nature.
Mr. Plummer says the ordinance at
present ts so lax that concerns in
stalling automatic or other kinds of
elevators are not required to safeguard
the lifts properly.
Inspector Plummer says the prin
cipal difficulty with the automatic ele
vators In a number of cases are the
projections which are permitted to ex
tend out into the elevator shaft
Mr. Plummer says he has recom
mended that the elevator ordinance be
so amended that these projections
would have to be rounded off so they
would push away an object. Some In
retaliation concerns have furnished this
added protection upon suggestion of
the building department, while others
have considered it needless.
Mr. Plummer says there are other
dangers in connection with the auto
matic elevators because of the fact
that they run without an attendant.
He says the city should comply with
the .oft-made request of the building
department for the appointment of an
elevator inspector who could look over
the general subject of elevator protec
tion and prepare an ordinance which
would amply cover the subject of pre
There have been a number of acci
dents in automatic elevators in the last
few years. One of the worst before the
accident to the little Griffin girl was
that about a year ago in an apartment
house in which a son of Jay Bowerman
was killed.

"Bny-a-Bale" Movement.
In accordance with the general "Apple
day" movement, the Covey Motor Car
Company, through President H. M.
Covey, will give each employe of the
firm a box of apples, as a sequel to the
plan of Eastern automobile manufac
turers who gave each of their employes
a bale of cotton during the recent "buy-
-bale' movement.
Not only will each of the workers of
the firm be supplied, but a large supply
of the fruit will be placed in the sales
room and garage for the benefit of vis
itors to the Covey establishment.
'"It occurred to me yesterday that
this would be about as good a way as
any to make 'Apple day as general as
possible," declared Mr. Covey yesterday.
"I think this a good plan for other
merchants to follow, because it brings
our prime products to their proper plane
where they will do some good. We, for
one, will make thisNan annual event."
It will reoulfe several trucks to haul
the apples required by the Covey firm.
Its payroll lists close to 100 men, and
when every caller is supplied gener
ously, the movement for the relief of
the Northwest market will have had
considerable impetus.
It would be interesting to know just
how many carloads of apples might be
used in this manner if our example
was followed generally," concluded Mr.
"Wells Hardware Company, was the
"I hope that every member of this
club and citizen of Portland wiH buy
a box of apples tomorrow and be loyal
to the great apple Industry of Oregon
and the Northwest." said Mr. Pier. "We

urging every one to eat an apple
Tuesday morning before breakfast, be
fore lunch, before dinner and one be
fore going to bed. :
"It Is important that every citizen
should do his part, and I believe ail
will, to encourage the applegrower at
a time when he needs encouragement.
There are 90,000 acres in Oregon in
apples and 10,000 in Washington de
pendent upon Oregon. More than Z5,4
000 families depend on these orchards
In this state. Besides these is the
great Northwest. Next te the lum
ber and grain, products the apple is
most important. The war has cut oft
the market, and we must come to the
assistance of the grower that he may
continue to take care of his orchards
and grow apples that make Oregon
famous the world over."
Dr. A. W. Moore told of the value of
apples as food, and urged their more
general use.

this afternoon. The first comers wilt be
siven first place in the contest.
In the carious stores and markets of
the city the supply of apples will be in
creased to meet the demand.
Apples will hold full sway in the
Yamhill-street public market. Ar
rangements have been made by Mar
ket Master Eastman to have a. supply
of several thousand boxes of choice
apples of all varieties on hand and it
is expected apple sales for the day will
be immense.
Clark & Son., .of Lyle, "Wash., will
have a big display, and the Lowns
dale Orchard Company and other large
applegrowers ' also will provide huge
Theaters ta Give Apples.
Theater managers are arranging to
distribute apples among their patrons,
and many of the other business estab
lishments, 'barber shops, etc., will do
the same.
Hotels and dining cars will keep the
apple to the fore by making it a fea
ture of their menus and apple menus
will be the task of the pupils in all of
the domestic science departments in
the public schools.
The Rotary Club, although Its pro
gramme Is announced for a discussion
of the legislative measures coming up
at the next election, will feature Apple
day, and the Ad Club tomorrow will
make Apple day the theme of its en
tire programme.
Grocers in all parts of the city are
to assist in the general movement by
calling up housewives and reminding
them that today Is Apple day and that
they have fancy apples at low prices
for them. '
Not only will the apple craze spread
over the city, but residents will carry
it further by sending out thousands ot
apples by parcel post to friends in other
places. O. I Cramer has made a fold
ing box that will hold two apples prop
erly packed for parcel post shipment,
and thousands of these are to be an

XV. F. Furlong Braves Jail Sentence
in Pushing Nomination Case.
CHICAGO, Oct. 19. A dramatic inci
dent iq which William F. Furlong, who
claims the Democratic Congressional
nomination for the Fourth Illinois Dis
tract, deliberately invited a jail sen
tence for contempt of court before
Judge Windes, occurred today.
"This," said Furlong, speaking de
liberately and looking squarely at the
court, "is the most damnable decision
ever . rendered in an American court
Your Honor may Jail me If you please."
Furlong claimed that James T. Mc
Dermott. who resigned his seat In the
lower house at Washington as a result
of the Mulhall charges and entered the
recent primaries for "vindication," ob
tained the nomination by means of
fraudulent votes. The official canvass,
however, confirmed McDerraott's nomi
nation and Furlong sought to bring the
case into court. '
"Will you stop?"' was all the court
said. Beyond this he took no notice of
the Penance.

There's plenty of room to stretch,

the passengers are extra tall.
Really. I don't see hpw any man

Another thing: the cushions are
deep and soft best upholstery
we've ever had. and worthy of a
