THE MORNING OREGONTAN", WEDNESDAY. FEBRUARY 3. 191.".
Blf CITY IS CERTAIN
Every Member of Commission
in Favor of Control', but
' Scope Is Not Decided.
SITUATION BEING STUDIED
Mr. Daly, Whose Department Is Said
to Hae Jurisdiction Declares
for Strict Rules ami I.ikcly
Will Bring Vp Matter.
The jitney bus. is to be regulated.
Such is the assurances piven the pub
lic bv everv member of the City Coun
cil. Just what form the regulation will
take and how extensive it will be still
are matters of conjecture.
The question of regulation probably
will become an important issue before
the City Council in a short time and
. lively fuss is expected not only among
tho Commissioners but among the other
interests involved. -
Every member of the Council said
he was positive that the new form of
transportation should be regulated.
Some members have definite views as
to the extent of such regulation, while
others have not reached any conclusion
other than that certain minor regula
tions are necessary.
City Attorney Investigating;.
City Attorney LaRoche is investigat
ing the subject thoroughly from a legal
standpoint: each Commissioner is giv
ing the subject considerable attention
and the public is expressing its views
in the form of letters for and against
. regulation. . ...
Various commercial and industrial
organizations are. sending in letters on
the subject. Resolutions were re
ceived yesterday from the board of
governors of the Portland Commercial
Club and board of trustees of the
Chamber of Commerce. Each went on
record as favoring regulation.
It is probable that City Commissioner
Daly will bring the matter of regula
tion before the Commission, as he is
head of the Department of Public
titilities. and the jitneys are said to
be under his jurisdiction as common
carriers. It in probable also that his
views concerning regulation will have
Sir. Dnly Hm llnrt Made lrl.
Commissioner Daly has his mind made
up that strict regulation Is necessary.
"All common carriers should be reg
ulated as to territory covered and fre
quency of service and the number of
occupants should bo no greater than
ih.. Koatm- rarai'ltv and standing room
rapacity," said Mr. Daly. "No common
c arrier" should be permitted to operate
a portion of the day and abandon op
eration during- another part of the
"No legislation or regulation should
be attempted with the object of elim
inating a common carrier from public
"The people of Mount Scott arc as
much entitled to jitney service as the
people close in.
Limited rvl-e Opposed.
If it confines Its service, however,
to the district where passengers may
he carried nt a profit, it does not meet
the requirements. If the jitney is to
replace the streetcar, it must fill every
function of the streetcar. If it merely
operates as it is at present it is unfair
to the streetcar company. We should
not permit some new common carrier
to take away the sweet and leave the
bitter. That would ruin the transpor
tation service far out."
"Investigation so far has convinced
me that there should be regulation
as to routing and schedule and service,"'
said Mayor Albee. "Whether or not
the franchise system is the proper one
Is a question which 1 have not decided."
Mr. ller-k Fivora Control.

use of the streets by these jitneys with
out control." said Commissioner Dieck.
"F shall be guided largely by the rec
ommendations of the Commissioner of
"Regulation is necessary," caid
Commissioner Brewster. "There is no
nuestiou but that there should be res
illation as to safety, the overloading
of the machines and responsibility in
case of accident."
"Of one thing I am sine." said Com
missioner Higelow, "and that is that
the jitney should be required to pay
a reasonable tax and should be made
responsible. As to the question of
regulation of servh-e 1 am not con
vince!. It is an entirely new propo
sition, which will take time to work

Commercial Cliih Makes Iteconmien-
dation to Mayor Albee.
The regulation of Jitney service and
tlie granting of regular franchises to
corporations agreeing to render service
to the entire city are recommended by
the Commercial Club in a resolution
adopted yesterday by the board of gov
ernors and transmitted to Mayor Al
bee. The recommendation for an ordi
nance providing for franchises for reg
ularly operating companies indicates a
recognition of the possibility of auto--bus
service becoming a permanent part
of tho transportation service of the
.The resolution is as follows:
Resolved. That the board of gov
ernors of the Portland Commercial Club
go on record to the Mayor and City
Council recommending the regulation
of the motorhus as to service, compen
sation and public protection, so as to
make the conditions of its control ap
proximately equal to the conditions im
posed upon established transportation
"It is also recommended to the City
Council that a measure be devised for
the granting of a franchise or fran
chises to. a motorhus corporation or
corporations which will agree to render
service to the entire City of Portland
on basis of reasonable fixed charges to
the public and adequate compensation
to the city and with necessary require
ments for the interchange of transfers."

straight, as has been shown, but he
wants a statement of the condition of
