PENSION ACT READY
Council to Pass on Relief Sys
tem for Policemen.
MEETING DECIDES MATTER
Question Not to Bo Submitted to
Voters In Juno Ordinance Pre
pared by Mr. La Roche Ap
proved by Officers.
The City Council Is to take action
on the question of establishing a relief
and pension system for the Police Bu
reau instead of the matter being? sub
mitted to the voters at the June elec
tion. This was decided yesterday at a
meeting of the police officials with
Mayor Albee. City Attorney LaRoche
and City Auditor Barbur.
Mayor Albee agreed to introduce in
the Council a pension ordinance which
has been nreoared by City Attorney
laRoche and approved by the police
men. The Mayor is to do his best to
ret the measure through the Council
- as soon as possible.
The measure will provide that $30,000
oS the amount taken in as fines in the
Municipal Court be placed in the relief
and pension fund annually and that
policemen be assessed a sum equal to
one and one-half per cent of their sal
aries. It is expected that the assess
ments will pay all the claims and that
the $30,000 can be held as a reserve
for emergency purposes.
Board to Be Created.
. The measure will create a pension
board, the members of which will be
the Mayor, Chief of Police, one police
captain. City Auditor and City Treas
urer. Whenever a policeman has served 20
years or more and has reached the age
of 60 years or has served 25 years and
has reached the age of 55 years, he
may be retired on half pay, the meas
ure will provide. In case of permanent
disability, he shall receive half pay
until he dies. If a policeman is killed
while In the performance of his duties
the measure will provide that the
widow or children receive one-third of
his salary until the widow dies or re
marries or until the children reach the
age of 16 or are married.
' Sick Benefit Provided.
The measure will provide that
If a policeman becomes temporarily
disabled, he shall receive full pay for
for six months. After that he shall re
ceive half pay until he recovers. For
sickness, a policeman shall receive one
half pay for three months. If the sick
ness continues more than three months,
the half pay is to go on, but there can
be only one three-months' period of
sickness In any one year.
It is the intention to add a section
to the measure to provide that the
$30,000 shall not be taken from the
Municipal Court fines until next year,
as the money has been appropriated for

CITIZENS MAKE PROTEST
Purchase of Water Plants by City of
F. C. Harlow, W. T. Houser, W. H.
Counsel!. Mr I.-Roberts, N. B. -Harvey
and H. N. Hopkins. Milwaukie property
owners, yesterday issued a statement
to the voters of Milwaukie in opposl
tion to the amendment to the charter
requiring the Council to purchase the
two water plants, the Milwaukie
Water Works Company and the Min
thorne Springs Water Company, which
will be voted on next Saturday.
It is set forth that an offer of $6500
for the Milwaukie Water Company's
plant was rejected and citizens remon
strated against payment of $5117 for
the Minthorne Springs Company's plant.
The committee says that the two com
panles want a total of $23,000 for their
property and it would be necessary to
purchase the third water plant owned
by T. R. A. Sellwood for $10,000, mak
ing a total of $33,000, which would
mean that Milwaukie would have
total debt of $82,000.
It is asserted that Milwaukie has
Bull Run water now and that the vote
. will have no effect.

father is president.
The nomination of Miss Spoerl was a
surprise to Mr. Spoeri, but matters were
taken entirely out of his hands by the
enthusiastic club members, and the se
lection of the Rotary Club mascot and
candidate for Queen was unanimous.
The photograph and nomination blank
of the candidate were turned over to
the Rose Festival Board late yesterday.
Prior to this nomination blanks for
nearly a dozen other young women
were received, but none complied with
the rules of the contest, and, in conse
quence, Miss Spoerl gained the distinc
tion of being the first one officially pre
sented before the citizens of Portland
as candidate to be their Queen in the
Festival June 9-11.

The stipulation Is that the nomina
tion blank shall be sent in with the

Miss Spoeri alone, thus far, has thi
rule been met.

blanks that are now in will be followed

JURY LIST HELD LEGAL

TO A. 91. BRUNSWICK.
Delegation of worn, ox
Qnotloned, but Court Decide
The legality of the 1915 jury list of
2134 names was upheld by Circuit Judge
Kavanaugrh yesterday In denying a writ
of habeas corpus for A. M. Brunswick,
a lawyer who is hold in the County
Jail under a penitentiary sentence for
Had the writ been granted on the
argument of W. T. Hume. Brunswick's
attorney, verdicts In dozens of Circuit
Court civil and criminal suits since last
January 'would have been put in ques
tion. Mr. Hum contended that the County
Commissioners had delegated the work
of drawing the Jury list to D. G.
Tomaslni. He held that the law gave
them no power to delegate this work;
that the list was, therefore. Improperly
drawn, and Brunswick should be re
ed from Jail Because no naa peon
convicted by a Jury drawn from this
Deputy District Attorney Murphy rep
resented Sheriff Hurlburt in fighting
against the issuance of a writ of habeas
corpus. He contended that the Com
missioners had delegated merely the
clerical part of the work in drawing
the jury list: that the law did not con
template that the Commissioners should
do the actual work themselves.
Chairman Lightner. of the Board of
Commissioners, was called to the wit
ness stand by Mr. Hume. He said that
Mr. Tomasini had done all the work of
drawing the list, and that the Board
had merely ratified it. In his 11 years
of experience as a member of the
County Board, Mr. Lightner said, only
once had he done any of the actual
work of drawing the huge Jury list.
Commissioner Rufus C. Holman was not
called to the stand, but, by stipulation,
his testimony was admitted as corrob
orating that of Mr. Lightner.
