port," he said, "excepting the tax levy.
I am in favor of a 4.8-mill levy instead
of a 6 -mill levy. We can wait with
the sites for the Hawthorne School site
and the trades school site. I am not in
favor of acquiring: those properties un
til we are ready to build upon them."
Salaries ot Affected.
Dr. Summer declared that he recently
heard reports that the 4.8-mill levy
would reduce salaries of teachers, and
emphatically asserted that the salary
of not a single employe of the Board
will be affected by the lower levy.
He pointedt)Ut that the Board al
ready has a trade school site on the
"West Side and declared that this should
be utilized or disposed of before an
additional site is acquired. He re
ferred to the site on Market street, be
tween Sixth street and Broadway.
He appealed to the taxpayers not to
support the plans of the Board to
"speculate In real estate," as he char
acterized the plans of the Board to ac
quire property and hold it idle for a
Mrs. Sarah II. Wilder created some
excitement for a few minutes by mak
ing a motion for a 45-mill tax. There
was no second to tha motion.
"Let's make it 3 mills," shouted some
one back in the crowd in an evident
attempt to be sarcastic.
Dr. Smith, one of the directors, moved
toward the front of the platform, but
Chairman Munly interrupted him.
"This isn't a directors' meeting," said
the chairman. "It is your meeting,"
but he could proceed no farther.
There was much rumbling and mur
muring in the audience and repeated
cries for Mr. Smitn.
- Dr. Smith Takes Floor.
Mr. Munly smiled and bowed and mo
tioned for Dr. Smith to come forward.
"I'm never afraid to come before any
body of people and support my action
as a public official," said Dr. Smith.
He explained how the Board has la
bored to eliminate expenses, and de
fended In every detail the proposed D
mill levy. He declared the property
now being considered as a trades school
site previously had been offered to the
Board for $125,000 and that later the
owners the Anglo-Pacific Realty Com
pany had agreed to accept $100,000.
The Board recently offered J90.000 for
the site, which is at East First, Adams,
Multnomah and Hassalo streets, cover
ing two full blocks.
Dr. Smith reviewed the work of the
Board and told of the time and effort
that the members put to the work of
the district without remuneration.
"Can you tell me." he asked, "why
we would come here and ask for this
levy if we, after careful consideration,
did not think it was the best thing for
Mingled cries of approval and dls
. approval came from the crowd, buf
above the tumult the familiar voice of
J. E. "Werlein rang out with:
"You're all right. Smith!"
Mr. Werlein was one of the leaders
of a large delegation of persons living
in the Hawthorne school district who
were there to support the Board.
Dr. iSmith concluded with an appeal
to the people to support the Board In
Its efforts to conduct the schools wise
ly and. economically.
The applause that followed him
showed, clearly that sentiment favored
the Board's programme.
' Cries of "Question," "Question,"
again came from all parts of the hall
as W. L. Boise took the platform. Mr.
Boise met the uproar undismayed. He
proceeded with his speech and soon had
the attention of everyone.
Change of Plan Hoped For,
"In the first place." he declared,
"there are not one-tenth of the people
here tonight who are entitled, to vote.
"As taxpayers we ought to uphold
the hands of the Board. I hope, though,
that this ...will, be the last meeting of
this kind. The-next "Legislature ought
to pass a law giving the Board the
power to fix the levy."
He explained that the difference be
tween the two reports is only two
tenths of 1 mill, which will be a dif
ference of only 20 cents for every f 1000
of assessed valuation of property.
"Now I don't believe in giving the
Board a single dollar more than It is
asking for," he continued, "but I don't
believe in taking a dollar away from it.
"I for one believe in upholdiug the
hands of the 'Board and telling the
members that we appreciate the work
they are doing for the community."
Woman's Motion Loses.
Mrs. Wilder again gained the at
tention of the- chair and mounted the
platform to renew her previous motion
for a 4.5-mill levy. The motion was
declared out of order.
At this point Chairman Munly re
buked Dr. Sommer for his earlier ref
erence -,to the Board's "speculating In
real estate." and -declared such lan
guage "unworthy a brother member."
In spite of efforts of various persons
to gain the floor, Mr. Munly put the
substitute motion for a 4.8-mill levy.
The response of "ayes" and "noes" was
He then called for a standing vote.
Tellers counted the vote by sections.
A poll showed 478 persons voting for
the 4.8-mill levy.
The volume of voters opposed to the
4.8-mill levy was so great that the
chairman Instructed the tellers not to
proceed with the count and declared
the motion lost.
He then put the original motion of
Mr. Boise for a 5-mill levy.
Although the "noes" prolonged their
vocal efforts, the chairman decided the
motion carried on the vive voce vote.
Adjournment Is Delayed.
. Immediately after Judge Munly had
declared the motion carried, Chester
V. Dolph jumped to his feet with a
motion that the meeting adjourn. J.
N. Teal objected to adjournment on
the ground that there was other busi
ness to transact. He was cut short,
however, by Chairman Munly, who de
clared that the motion to adjourn was
At this juncture there was a demand
that Mr. Dolph withdraw his motion,
which he did at the request of Mr
Teal. Then Mr. Teal moved that tie
chairman reappoint the usual auditing
committee to Berve for the ensuing
year. After a second by J. E. Werlein
the motion carried by a large vote and
Chairman Munly accordingly renamed
L. D. Fleming, J. B. Tanner and C. F.
Wiegand as the official auditing com
mittee. Then at 9:15 o'clock the chair
man put the motion to adjourn and it
carried without apparent opposition.
The taxpayers bad been in session
exactly one hour and 15 minutes.
All But Dr. Sommers Sign.
The following report was made by
the directors and signed by all Board
members except Dr. Sommer:
Ladies and Gentlemen For your informa
tion and guidance, the School Board of Dis
trict No. l, herein submits to you a brief
summary of what has been accomplished
during the past year, together with Its
recommendations for a tax levy for school
needs for the year of 1915.
It has been found necessary during 3914
to purchase & numbor of sites for new
schools and to enlarge areas around exist
ing school buildings, partly through direct
purchase and partly, through condemnation
There is need of new and additional
grounds at Alameda, Albina Homestead.

AT'TO DEALER ELECTED
PRESIDENT OF PORTLAND
H. I Keata.
At the annual election of the
Portland Golf Club, held yes
terday at the Oregon Hotel. H.
L. KLeats, well-known Portland
auto dealer, was elected presi
dent. Mr. Keats Is a pioneer auto
man of Portland and a golf en
thusiast. TL H. Baldwin was re
elected vice-president; I. P. E.
Reynolds was re-elected treas
urer and H. E. Pearce was chosen
. as the new secretary.
Ing the coming year, and the board has
placed In the budget only sufficient amount
to take care of those which are absolutely
Four new elementary building's and one
addition have been contracted, and two new
manual training and domestic science build,
ings have been constructed.
There has been a large amount of work
done during the past year in repairs and
betterments. Humidifiers, electrical lights,
additional toilets and ventilating fans nave
Fire Problem and Safety.
On Invitation of the School Board, Fire
Chief Do well, Deputy Fire Marshal Roberts
and Building Inspector Plummer made a
careful inspection of all the school buildings
Jn tne district and offered some recom
mendations for better fire protection, all
of which have been favorably acted upon by
the board. All permanent huildlngs are
now fully equipped with fire-fighting appa
ratus. Fire alarm boxes have been, or are
being placed by city authorities, near all
the school buildings. Fire drills have been
made one of the important features In the
various schools and principals are require
to hold Buch drills once each week. Pupils
have been especially Instructed how to act
in case of fire, how to handle lines of hose.,
how to get out of buildings in case of fire
and how to turn In fire alarms. Fire sig
nals and drills have been revised and simpli
fied. Inspection of all machinery in the
schools has been made and all precautions
have been followed carefully In the interest
of absolute safety.
During the year $94,000 in refunding
bonds were redeemed, reducing the bonded
Indebtedness of the district to 760,000. To
provide a fund for the redemption of bonds,
the board has. for each of the past several
years, set aside a certain sum of money.
There is now in this fund, practically $55,
000, which is drawing 4 per cent interest.
We have included in the budget the usual
item of $50,000 to be devoted to the re
demption of bonded obligations. The com
ing year $0000 of bonds which we fell heir
to when Lents School District was voted In,
will have to be redeemed, provision for which
is made in the budget.
School gardens have been Incorporated In
the curriculum within the last year. During
the Spring terms of school there were 4i
gardens cultivated by the pupils at com
paratively small cost. The result of the
test was very satisfactory as to the use
fulness of this line of work. It is the purpose
of the board to continue the same.
Evening schools have become one of the
large problems of the district. During the
past few years they have grown rapidly until
at the present time they embrace all
branches of school, work. Including high,
elementary and commercial schools,
schools of trades and classes for
foreigners. This Winter the board has
opened them in such buildings throughout
the district as would best serve the several
communities. The total registration during
the first month of the present term was
2762, occasioning the employment of 114
teachers. Credits are given pupils equal to
one-third of the credits for regular work in
the day schools.
Vacation Schools.' -
To meet the demands for vacation schools
which were first established rhree years ago,
on a small scale, the board during the past
year Inaugurated a plan for maintaining
these schools on a more extensive and prac
tical scale, and 15 elementary and one high
school, and the schools of trades for bc.ti
boys and girls, were opened. Also : manual
training and sewing classes were organized.'
The total registration of pupils in the Sum
mer schools was 53SS. It is our plan to
continue the Summer schools next year.
High School Situation.
Because of the greatly Increased number
of high school students- the high school
situation In this city is one of the most se
rious problems confronting the board. Every
high school building Is filled to overflow
ing. Pupils of the Franklin High School are
now scattered around In several buildings,
making its proper administration most dif
ficult; and with the certainty that , there
will be close to 900 more high school pupils
to be cared for next Winter, the board feels
the need of additional high school rooms is
urgent and has included as Its recommenda
tion the expenditure of $100,000 for the first
unit or a new r ranKiin iign School build
ing, which will be a materia; help, but will
not of itself be sufficient to take car of
this pressing situation. In addition, the
board has made provision In its budget for
the renovation of the old Shattuck School
building as soon as the new Shattuck ts
finished, to house all the students taking
commercial work in the several high schools.
The construction of the first 'unit of the
Franklin High and the preparing of the
Shattuck School for the commercial work
will greatly relieve the situation and pro
vide room for all high school pupils for at
least one year.
The report also contained the budget
recommendations as adopted.
The following minority report was
submitted by Dr. Sommer;
I, the undersigned, a member of the Board
of Directors, hereby submit a minority re
port, recommending the adoption of the
above majority report in every particular ex
cept that of the purchase of a site for the
School of Trades and the amount of a tax
levy. I am of the opinion that - no new
Trades School site should be purchased at
this time and believe a levy should be made
which will not contain provision for this
outlay. With this item eliminated, the
schools can be maintained on a 4.8 mill
levy, which I recommend.

Arthur Hart, a 13-year-old boy -who
was. shot in the head by Earl Kane,
a playmate of the same age. In the St.
Helena rooming-house. Second and
Main streets, Monday, died yesterday
at St. Vincent's Hospital.
Earl Kane, taken to Juvenile Court
yesterday and closely questioned by
Deputy District Attorney Robison, Spe
cial Agent Geren and Juvenile Court
officials, declared the shooting was ac
cidental, that both reached for a loaded
revolver at the same time and In the
friendly scuffle, the weapon was dis
Arthur Hart lived with his parents
at 846 Division street and Earl Kane's
home Is at 894 East Caruthers street.
Both stayed at the rooming-house with
Ferdinand Matthews, said to be a
sheepman, Sunday night and It was In
his room. No. 34, that the shooting took
place. Officers are now seeking Mat-
"He was my best friend," sobbd Earl
Kane as he told his story to Deputy
Robison yesterday, who had it taken
down by a shorthand writer. "We
never had any trouble. I nave Known
him since last June and we spent most
of our time together.
"We were in Matthews' room and
Arthur said, 'Let's get his pistol out of
his grip and look at It." I pulled it
out and he wanted to take, it out" of
my hands," but I wouldn't let him, I
told him I-wanted to look at it myself.
"We -wrestled for it and the gun
went. off. The bullet struck Arthur in
the side of the head Just" above the ear
and he. fell over on the bed. Then I
went and told the proprietor of the
rooming-hous of the shooting. . .
The lad said they had taken .the
pistol out frequently and shot tin cans
with it for fun. Earl Kane was a ward

ing brought in for a minor offense. He
was sent to tne Detention Home fol
lowing his examination yesterday and
his disposition will await the investi

any intention to shoot his companion.
In describing the shooting he took a
revolver and illustrated his version of
the accident, showing how the two,
standing closely together, sought to
secure possession of the gun.

case,-' said Mr. Lewis, "foe the amend
ment as adopted contains ltttle like
ness to the original draft. There was
no one in Salem to represent St. Johns,
so the mice played while the cat was
away. The amendment is not null and
void. It may be difficult of execution
and non-workable, but It is valid.
Who made the changes from the orig
inal draft, or when they were made
I do not know. I am sure J. H. Nolta
did not make them or authorize them
to be made. The section as prepared

ROBBER HUNT STILL ON
Companions of Wounded Holdup
Traced to Portland, Says Sheriff.
Search for the companions of "Dutch
Pete" Strof, alleged safe crackar, who
was wounded. It is believed, while at
tempting to rob Charles Jarl, a mer
chant, at Kelso, last Monday, was
continued by the local police and Sheriff
Mass, of Clackamas County, yesterday.
Strof is still in a dangerous condition
at St.. Vincent's Hospital.
Believing that the man was at the
point of death Captain Baty, with De
tectives Hellyer, Tackaberry and Kela
her, hurried to the hospital to get a
dying statement from him. He refused.
Jarl shot a robber believed to be Strof
during an attempted holdup at the point
of a gun while two other men dyna
mited the safe in Jarl's store. The po
lice say they have traced two of the
robbers to Portland.
