Thrills Added to Romance.
Mr. ond Mrs. McElroy are modest in
discussing the details, but neither de
nies that the episode added a few thrills
to their romance.
"Well, what would you think under
the circumstances?" was Mrs. McEl
roy's subtle remark last night.
. "Aw, I can't exactly say as to that,
but I guesB we were engaged before
It happened," was Mr. McElroy's
"As for the rescue there's not much
to say," eventually added Mr. McElroy.
"1 hardly knew what I was doing when
1 lumped after the girl, 1 saw the fors'i
boom swinging dangerously and stepped
out of the - way. Two girls were
struck, but only Carrie Brunne was

Heads Lopped Off.
No sooner had the new board organ
ized than an apparently inspired de
mand for certain changes in the heads
of departments became manifest
W. L. Finley was removed from the
office of State Game Warden a posi
tion for which he is peculiarly fitted on
account of his close and scientific study
of all kinds of game animals.. C. H
Evans, one of Governor West's newly
appointed commisssloners. was named
Mr. Finley's successor. Mr. Finley was
given a minor position at the head of
the "educational and biological" de
partment at a reduced salary.
Mr. Clanton likewise was forced out
of the fish wardenship and placed In
charge of the fish hatcheries of the
state a job created on the spot Theo

and stenographer In Mr. Clanton's of
fice, was made master fish warden.
Maay Deputies Chaasred.
Meanwhile many of the deputy game
wardens out In the state were removed'
and replaced with persons believed to
be more acceptable to the West ma
chine. Some of the old deputies who
were understood to be favorable to the
Governor's political plans wero re

kept in office against the executive's
It was necessary for Mr. Evans, in
order to accept the Game Wardenship,
to resign as a member of the commis
sion. For a while the place was held
vacant, but when the Governor named
a successor it was B. E. Duncan, one
of the old members who had resigned.
This gave color to the report circu
lated at the time the trio of resigna
tions was handed to the Governor that
in time all the old members would be
returned to office and pear out predic

Old Board IVrarly Restored.
Things went along In this fashion
until about five weeks ago, when H. H.
Clifford resigned. He was appointed
to a place in the state insurance de
partment. C. F. Stone, another of the
original commissioners, was named to
succeed him. , i
Frank Hughes now is the only one
of the original commissioners not yet
restored to office.
Although Governor "West explained
all these changes at the time that they
were made on the grounds of economy.
it is a matter of fact that the Fish ano
Game Commission has cost the state
more money under the new organisa

Serlea or Talks Oresoa Industries
Begin With Lecture on Honey
by Mr. Faachlng.
' H. A. Darnall presented the need of
a new high school building in the
Southeast Side to house the Franklin
High School. Mrs. G. L. Buland told
of the efforts in progress to secure
the site for a new home for the Haw
thorne Grammar School, and S. J.
Fasching, of the Pacific Honey Com
pany, delivered an address on the 'pro
duction and quality of honey yester
day at the luncheon of the East Side
Business Men's Club at the Hotel Ed
wards. Mr. Darnall pointed 'out that more
than 10J high school students In the
Southeast Side .are attending the Lin
coln High School and 200 are at the
Franklin High School, which at pres
ent is housed at the Creston and South
Mount Tabor buildings. A new high
school, he said, will relieve the Lin
coln and Washington High schools
and take care of the 12 buildings in
the Southeast Side.
Mr. Darnall asked the co-operation
of the East Side Business Men's Club
and invited the club to send represen
tatives to the mass meeting to be held
at the Creston building tonight. The
invitation was accepted.
Mrs. Buland, representing the Haw
thorne Parent-Teachers' Association,
told of the efforts being made to se
cure a site for a new building for the
Hawthorne School. Mrs. . Buland in
vited the club to send delegates to a
masi meeting which will be held in the
East Side Branch Library. East Alder
and East Eleventh streets, in the in
terest of this movement.
Mr. Fasching was the first speaker in
the series of talks the club has ar
ranged on Oregon Industries, his sub
ject being, "Honey, Get tho Best or
You Will Be Stung." He said that pure
honey in this state comes from clover,
alfalfa and fireweed and is a growing
industry. He explained the difference
between strained and extracted honey,
and ridiculed the prevailing notion that
honey in the comb can b manufac
tured, declaring only the bee can make
honey in the comb.
effort may be made by Commissioner
Brewster to have the Council at its
regular meeting tomorrow fix the levy
at 7.4 mills. This will mean that in
spite of the fact that the budget re
quires a tax of 7:5 mills or $3,224,000.
a levy will be fixed which will raise
1 30. 000 less than that amount, thus
requiring the cutting of estimates by
individual members of the Council.
Ordinarily the Council fixes the tax
levy at the same time it adopts the
budget. The action of yesterday of
adopting the budget and not fixing the
levy is without precedent. Should tho
Council now cut the levy arbitrarily
it is contended that it would be an
acknowledgment that it had not
trimmed the budget of proposed ex
penditures aa extensively as possible.
Committee Urges Pruning.
A committee headed by J. N. Teal
and C. W. Hodson, of the Taxpayers'
League, and George Mason, of the Non
partisan League appeared before the
Council yesterday and urged further
trimming of the budget and levy. Ob
jections were made to the proposed ex
penditure or 30, ooo ror a new fire
station on Fourth street between Yam
hill and Morrison streets, to the pur
chase of an aerial truck for the fire
bureau for $12,500 and to expenditures
proposed for sewer- and street main
tenance and repair.
Mr. Teal declared that conditions
are such that the taxpayer is over
burdened and that all possible public
improvements should be postponed for
the present. Mayor Albee declared that
the new Are machine and the replacing
of the headquarters fire station with a
new building are necessary improve
ments.. Commissioner Djeck contended
that with the Increase in mileage of
hard-surface streets and of sewers the
cost of repairs and maintenance in
Budget Committee Complimented.
Mr. Teal said '-fee was greatly
pleased over the efforts of the .Com
mission to hold 'the city budget down
to bedrock. He said the fact that the
Taxpayers' League had found objection
to only three items in the budget
should be taken as a compliment.
It was declared by Mayor Albee that
the cost of conducting the city gov
ernment In 1915 will be far less than
the amount used for the present year.
The budget for this year was 7.7 mills
and on top of this abou.t 1340,000 was
received from liquor licenses. For 1915
the budget has been trimmed so far
to 7.5 mills or $60,000 less than the
amount raised for 1914. In addition
to this the city will lose at least
$180,000 in saloon license revenue. Al
though this revenue will- be lost and
will have to be made up by the tax
payers, the Council has cut the budget
below what It was for this year when
the eaiooc revenue was received in full.
In all, tho City will cost $240,
000 less in 1915 than the cost for
the present year and about the same
amount less than the cost in 1913. Of
the total amount of the budget $636,511

"ST. ELMO" DUE AT HEILIG
Film or "Widely Read Story to Be
Lovers of photoplays will have an
exceptional opportunity of seeing the
fascinating and widely-read story of
"St Elmo" In motion pictures at the
Heilig Theater for five days and nights,
beginning next Thursday. .Arrange
ments were completed yesterday by
Mr. W. T. Norton to produce 4hese
interesting films which hove been
among the most-talked-about pictures
ever exhibited on the Pacific Coast.
The story of "St Elmo" is one of
great interest. "St Elmo" is the eon
of Mrs. Murray, a rich and Influential
widow. He is a close friend of Murray
Hammond, son of the vintage parson.
They are inseparable until they fall in
love with the same girl. She loves
Hammond, but accepts "St. Elmo" on
account of his great wealth and social
position. After the' betrothal banquet
!'St Elmo" finds his intended wife in
the arms of Murray. There is a ter
rific quarrel and a . duel follows in
which Murray falls dead at tho first
shot. "St. Elmo's" entire nature is
changed. He becomes an enemy of his
fellow men and wanders for 29 vears
practically an outcast. A vision of
Christ appears to "St. Elmo.", and his
hatred is softened. He devotes his en
tire life to the sick and afflicted.
