POLICEMEN GALLED OUT
"BLIND MAX" CAUSES TROUBLE,
BUT TICKETS GO FAST,
Crowds Gather at Hotels, Blue Coats
Rush In, Then All Learn Muti' Plan
to Help Send Band East.
A "blind man" was the cause of the
calling out of 20 patrolmen Monday
night to quell "disturbances" In hotels,
grills and on the streets, and before
finally being subdued one man was
landed in jail on a charge of mashing.
The stranger, carrving a huge sign
reading "Blind, Please Help," and hold
ing a cup. first appeared in the Hotel
Imperial. The special officer and Mon
roe Goldstein, of the Muts. tried vainly
to put him out. A crowd gathered and
a hurry-up call was sent to the police
station and about 20 men responded.
Before they got him out, however, he
managed to change his sign to read
"Please help send the Portland band
East to advertise Portland and Oregon;
buy a ticket for the big show."
Explanations followed and the crowd
learned that it was a "stunt" of the
Muts to help the police band. The
"blind man" was M. X. Wells, patrol
man. A score of tickets were sold.
Near Park and Washington streets
he was almost urrested. At the Port
land Hotel he broke into a session of
the Modern Woodmen of the World. A
man and woman, having a controversy
on Washington street at the time he
happened to pass, were arrested as the
result of trouble that started. The
Muts met with great success at the Hot
Brau, Oregon, The Rainbow, Multno
mah and other places.

Diminishing revenues of the Port
land Railway, Light & Power Company
have caused directors of the company
to make plans for raising 1, 250,000 for
immediate needs without levying a di
rect assessment against the stock
holders. This plan, which in brief provides
that 20 per cent, or J5.000.0CO worth of
shares of the outstanding common
stock with a cash payment of $25 per
share be exchanged for a like amount
of preferred stock, will be considered
at a special meeting of the stockholders
on Friday, May 14.
At present the company has $25,000,
000 in common stock outstanding upon
which only $75 per share has been
It is proposed that one-half of the
preferred shares, or $2,500,000, will be
6 per cent cumulative stock dating
from January 1, 1916, subject to call
at par and accumulated dividends at
any dividend period.
The remaining one-half, it Is pro
posed, shall be 6 per cent non-cumulative
stock, subject to call at par on any
dividend date. These two classes of
stock will be apportioned among the
stockholders subscribing for the issue.
At the same meeting the stockholders
will consider a proposal to Increase the
authorized capital stock of the com
pany $10,000,000, of which $5,000,000 Is
to be first preferred and $5,000,000 sec

each of these lots Is to be disposed of
In the plan heretofore outlined and the
remaining $2,500,000 In each class will
be held in the treasury for future sale
by the directors.
The company has paid no dividends
for more than a year and Is confront!
with the necessity of making numer
ous Improvements and betterments. The
directors have decided that the stock
exchange plan is the best method of
financing " the affairs of the company
until its revenues again make it pos
sible to meet expenses from current
"Our earnings have fallen off so that
we no longer have the money to meet
current expenses," said Franklin T.
Griffith, president of the company,
Monday. "Many local conditions are to
blame. We propose to raise $1,250,000
and the plan that we have arranged
for raising it, I think, will work the
least hardship upon the stockholders.
In fact, I am assured that we will .have
no difficulty in making the exchange
of stock and thUB raising the required
amount of money. The money is to be
used in making various improvements
such as must be made every year."
The company Monday received
$375,000 from the Federal Government
for the sale of the Oregon City locks,
but this money must be held In trust
for the bondholders of -the company
inasmuch as the lock property was in
