By trimming the estimates of pro
posed expenditures for the police bu
reau for 1915 a total of more than
$158,000, the City Commission, sitting
in the capacity of budget committee,
established a record yesterday. The
aggregate cut was greater -than the
cuts of any other one session since the
budget has been under consideration.
The biggest item eliminated was
$100,00 for three proposed sub-police
stations. This item has bobbed up in
each budget during the last three years
and each time it has been lopped off,
although it has been admitted that
sub-stations are greatly needed. The
next biggest item was the cutting out
of $49,500 proposed for the hiring of 50
additional policemen. A proposed sim
ilar increase was cut out of the budget
a year ago.
Need of Catting Expense Ccnie, .
The action yesterday was based upon
the need of holding down the expenses
during 1S15.
In handling the subject of salaries
the Council treated the police bureau
the same as the fire bureau. An arbi
trary stand was taken on the policy of
refusing increases to persons receiving!'
$100 a month or more. For that rea
son the proposed salary Increases were
slaughtered left and right as far down
the list as the patrolmen receiving less
than $100 a month.
Two police captains were refused in
creases aggregating $120 a year; two
others $180 a year, two matrons $120
for the year, the harbormaster $330 a
year, six detective sergeants $360 a
year, and 21 detectives $1290 a yeai.
Twenty sergeants were refused an ag
gregate increase of $1500 a year.
Forty-one Receive Increases.
Of the patrolmen 41 received in
creases aggregating $1230 for the year,
13 others will share in $690 for the year
and 17 others will share in $19S0 al
lowed. All these men are receiving less
than $100 a month.
In lieu of the elimination of the ap
propriation for 50 additional policemen,
the committee allowed $2700 for three
telephone operators to take the places
of policemen handling the telephone ex
change, and $3600 was allowed for four
chauffeurs to take the place of police
men. This was virtually the same as
giving the bureau seven additional po
licemen. An appropriation of $25,000 was al
lowed for the completion of the first
unit of the detention home for women.
There was $15,000 appropriated for this
last year and there is an unexpended
balance of about $7000. This means
that only $18,000 of the $25,000 appro
priated will have to be raised by tax
ation next year, the additional $7000 be
ing carried over from this year's ap
Mr. McGinn Will Visit Prisoners and
Give Unfortunates Chance.
Declaring his belief in the big broth
er system of aiding the unfortunate.
Judge McGinn, who has criminal cases
in the Circuit Court for the coming two
months, will make a visit to inmates
of the county jail late this week and
interest himself in their condition.
"I want them to feel that I will be
their father confessor," said the
Judge, "and will help them to help
themselves. Some of them, it is to be
feared, will not be helped by setting
them free without some one to come to
their assistance. The big brother

Francisco Is on Way. x
Coos County has sent to San Fran
cisco the tirst exhibit for installation
in the Oregon building at the Panama
Pacific Exposition. It was shipped

and consisted of 29 boxes of fruits.
vegetables, grains and grasses.
A 200-box exhibit from Salem is pre
paring and will be shipped in a few
days to baa Francisco lor storage.
Another Reduction Is Made on
Via Canal Shipments.
Belief Expressed, However, That In
dependent Vessels From the Coast
- Now in Atlantic May Have
Brought Competition.
Portland firms concerned in the steel
trade were recipients of most welcome
news yesterday from agencies of steam
ship lines operating from the East
Coast through the Canal, that the tariff
had been cut 6 cents on each 100
pounds, which is in addition to reduc
tions made when the Canal was first
used. The reason for the drop is not
known, but it is supposed that some
of the independent vessels operated
from this coast have reached New York
and are seeking return cargoes, hence
keen competition.
W. R. Grace & Company and the
American-Hawaiian lines telegraphed
Portland representatives that the
changes become effective immediately
and it is believed that shipping will
be stimulated materially. The rate on
cast iron pipe drppped from 35 to 30
cents and a new rate was established
on structural steel, unfabricated, of 80
cents on lengths from 40 to 60 feet.
Band iron, shingle bands. bar iron,
blooms and billets, hoop iron, and such
stock was lowered from 30 to 25 cents,
and in the way of structural material
plates, angles, beams, tees, channels
and zees, not to exceed 40 feet in
length, were reduced from 30 to 25 cents.
On nails, horseshoe staples, toe calks
and spikes it dropped to 25 cents and it
was specified that on standard-sized
kegs of nails the rate would be 25 cents
a keg. Plain iron and barbed wire
now take the 25-cent tariff also.
The business routed to Portland is
such that few shipments are made in
iess than 100-ton lots and often one
firm will receive several hundred tons.
Until Sudden & Christenson, the Dodge
Steamship Company and others began
running steamers from this coast
through the Canal with lumber and
California products bulky cargo moved
on vessels of the American-Hawaiian,
W. R. Grace & Company's fleet and the
Luckenbach line, with the Boston-Pacific
steamers Atlantic and Pacific
bringing some out, but they are on
their maiden voyages.
The introduction of independent ves
sels In the trade is expected to have
more effect on westbound rates, as it
has on tariffs between Oregon, Wash
ington and California and ports on the
East Coast. The Sudden & Christenson
interests announce that they will ex
tend their service to include ports In
the Gulf of Mexico after; November 10,
and already shippers are reaching Bos

Lady Gives Simple Home Recipe That
She Used to Darken Her Gray
For years I tried to restore my gray
hair to its natural color with the pre
pared dyes and stains, but nona of them
gave satisfaction and they were all ex
pensive. I finally ran onto a simple
recipe which I mixed at home that
gives wonderful results. I gave the
recipe, which is as follows, to a num
ber of my friends, and they are all
delighted with It: To 7 os. of water add
a small box of Barbo Compound. 1 os.
of bay rum and VA oz. of glycerine. Use
every other day until the hair becomes
the required shade, then every two
weeks. It will not only darken the
gray hair, but ' removes dandruff and
scalp humors, and acts as a tonic to
the hair. It is not sticky nor greasy,
does not rub off and does not color the
scalp. You can prepare it at home at
very little expense Adv.

land have asked the company to route
the St. Johns cars on that street.
The club is considering an amend
ment to- its constitution for the ap
pointment of an executive board of
five members to expedite the business
of the club. President Couch will call
a mass meeting of citizens in a short
time to set before the people of St.
