It costs the Portland Railway,
Light & Power Company 2 hi cents
a. month to read each of Its
meters. At this rate the meter
reading: cost for Portland with
city-wide meters would bo $17,
100 a year.
The water bureau, under the
Paly regime, pays $20,520 a year
in salaries to men to prevent
water waste in residences. The
water saved goes into the sewers
at the reservoirs.
With 14.000 meters, Portland
has four meter readers. With
city-wide meter system 16 read
ers would be required on the
came ratio. The salaries of these
men would be J17.2S0.
Chicago has 20 meter readers
to read IS, 000 meters and other
cities show corresponding num
bers. Commissioner Daly's own figures
fhow that the city will have a surplus
of $37,000 in water funds this year.
Next year he says the surplus will be
$175,000. This makes a total of J212.000
which the water bureau will collect in
excess of what is actually needed to
maintain the water bureau during the
next two years.
From this total of $212,000 Commls
sioner Daly announces that he will
perform the remarkable miracle of in
stalling1 49,000 water meters In Port
land at a total minimum cost of $101.
800 (using: Mr. Daly's own figures as
to cost of installing meters). On top
of this he will increase. the cost of the
water bureau operation a total of
$32,000 for two years for meter read
ln;r. And then, after meeting these
total added expenses of $433,800 with
his available fund of $212,000, he has
announced that he may be able to re
duce water rates.
Theory Considered Ridiculous.
To those who have investigated the
meter proposition the argument of re
duced water rates under a. meter sys
tern is considered ridiculous. xThe
proposition does not work out inathe
matically because by no manner of fig
uring can the city escape paying the
Initial cost of purchasing 43,000 meters
at from $5.80 to 88.40 each, and $2.40
each for installing. By no manner of
figuring can the city escape paying an
additional $26,000 a year meter new
services, and by no manner of figuring
can the city escape taking out all the
meters in 12 to 15 years and putting In
new ones. Water meters wear out In
from 12 to 15 years and perhaps less
By no manner of figuring can the
city escape engaging and paying a
small army of men to read the city's
meters, and by no manner of figuring
can the water bureau escape a great
deal of additional bookkeeping and
clerical service by reason of the
monthly bills being on the basis of the
amount of water used as shown by the
Lower Rate Possible-Norn.
As a matter of fact, if Mr. Daly
should pursue the policy of paying for
meters out of current revenue, water
rates would have to be increased, and
now they are so high that in two years
the water bureau will collect $212,000
more than is necessary. If water users
were given the benefit of this, rates
could be cut materially at once.
The direct question to be voted upon
at the June election is the purchase1 of
5000 water meters. This Is the first
installment of the 49.000 that will be
necessary in two years. If current
revenue were used, as Mr. Daly prom
ises, the water bureau could not in
stall the 5000 meters proposed, to be
purchased this year. The total cost of
purchasing and installing these meters
would be $41,000. The water bureau, at
the best (using Mr. Daly's own fig
ures), will have but $37,000 to use for
the meters. Where will the balance'of
$4000 come from?

Peace Declared Uod's Will.
After presenting the Bible meaning
of the subject Rev. Mr. iane declared
that it is God's purpose that war should
end and that there should be -universal
peace, as all the teachings of the Old
and New Testaments declare "Peace on
earth and good will to man." He
pointed out that war is out of harmony
with the'divine purpose, which Is that
the brotherhood of man should prevail
on the earth. He said that peace was
not sleep or stagnation; that real peace
was self-control in storm and in stress,
peace with opportunity of turmoil and
strife possible. The ocean, he said, at
rest Is the best illustration of true
peace, with the possibilities of the
storm evtr present, rather than the
peaceful lake shut In by the mountains
as given by the artist, who tried to
draw a picture of peace.
"Real peace is calmness in the midst
of strife, said Mr. Lane; self-control
in time of strife and stress."
The speaker paid high tribute to
President Wilson's address to the nat
uralized Americans a few days ago, and
said no more noble sentiment had ever
come from the White House in the his
tory of this country, and in the efforts
of the President to maintain peace in
this country he called on every citizen
- "Peace Better Than Strife."
"Peace is always better than strife,
said the preacher, "and nothing is ever
settled, that is not settled right, and
nothing can be settled right without the
adherence to the purpose of God that
all men should be brothers. I believe

Wben Comedian Laughs, His Mouth
Spreads Over Whole Face.
One of the biggest mouths in cap

male half of the Brown and Lawson
comedy team at the Lyric Theater.
When Brown laughs his face disappears
and there comes into view the mam
moth cave of Kentucky, the white teeth
easily passing for stalagmites.
Brown has a handioap on many pro
fessional colored comedians, for his
woorly hair is his own and his coal
black complextoin doesn't rub off on
his collar. His dancing and singing
partner, while of his race, is fair
skinned and good-looking.

Details of a plan to make Juvenile

The plan tentatively agreed to yes
terday Is to -separate delinquent chil
dren at the Frazer Home from the de
pendent children. The delinquents are
those who have been sent to the in
stitution because they are hard to con
trol, while the dependents are chil
dren who have lost their parents.
"The Frazer Home is so crowded
that it is not possible to separate de
linquents from the others there," said
Judge Cleeton. "There are "0 or 80
children in the home, of whom about
25 are delinquent boys and girls. What
I wish to do is to arrange for their
segregation from the dependent chil
dren and also for their separation Into
smaller groups, each group to be under
a teacher fitted for such work, so that
the children can have the advantage of
more nersonal attention.
"The recent grand Jury advised Buch
segregation, and the problem must be
met. The plan we have adopted
tentatively is to ask the County Com
missioners and the Board of Educa
tion to provide funds for putting up
one or two buildings, either on the
county farm or elsewhere, in which
these delinquents could be placed in
groups of 10 or 12 and where they
would not only receive personal in
struction from a teacher, but would
have a little garden and other health
ful work. The cost of these buildings
would be small. I think that In such
surroundings and with such -concentrated
personal instruction, calculated
to meet the Individual needs of each
child, ws could turn almost 100 per
cent of these delinquents into good and
useful men and women.
"Each of these groups would occupy,
in effect, a small industrial, home. The
furniture for the homes could be made
by the boys of the Trades School, so
that the initial cost would be small and
the homes cost little to maintain."
An advisory and a general commit
tee were named to work out plans and
present them to the Commissioners and

Church, on "Manhood and Religion:
"Man is the representative, the cus

in which they may b met. All busi
ness men are subject to a tremendous
pressure of business. It occupies the
mind, exhausts the faculties and
deadens the spirit, so that the business
man of today becomes conscious of
living on a lcver level of thought and
conviction. In addition , to ills at
tendant upon the pressure of business,
the business man Is subject to many
difficulties arising from the practices
of the trade or profession in which he
is engaged. Many of these practices
his conscience disapproves, but he can
see no way of avoiding them without
retiring from business. And the third
