Politicians Are of Opinion
'. They Will Lead Ticket.
With the voters In general showing
great apathy over the approaching city
election, now only four days off, there
Is a general impression voiced by the
candidates that the total vote will not
exceed 50,000. Yet so far as the peo
ple of Portland are concerned this elec
tion to select two Commissioners and
a City Auditor, besides passing on 12
measures. Is of more direct importance
than the election of a Governor or
United States Senator.
The apathetic voter seems to forget
that the two new Commissioners will
have a part for the next four years
in the expenditure of approximately
J2.500.000 of the city's money each year.
This is within a few thousand dollars
of the city's budget this year, but with
Portland continuing to grow as it is
doing, chances are that the sum will
be considerably larger three or four
years from now.
These Commissioners will be the di
rect agents of the people in the admin
istration of the city government. The
City Council each year passes on
scores of ordinances, all having an in
timate bearing on the welfare of the
Among the more important measures
en the ballot Is the water meter ordi
nance, involving a policy of general
water meter installation at an ultimate
cost in the next few years of $450,000
to $500,000. "Were this much money in
volved in a single bond issue, there
would be wide interest in the election.
Another important measure is that
authorizing $75,000 in bonds for mu
nicipal garbage collection. Still an
other Is the jitney ordinance, regulating
the operation of passenger-carrying
motor vehicles. Of much importance
also are the two measures for the an
nexation of St- Johns and Linnton.
In the fact of these facts, it seems
surprising that so little general inter
est is exhibited in the election. Unless
there Is a surprisingly large "silent
vote." or the voters in general rouse
from their apathy, the Commissioners
will be elected and the measures
adopted or rejected by a minority of
the registered voters.
If the general trend of pre-election
betting can be taken as an indication.
George L. Baker and William Adams
are strong favorites for the two City
Commisslonerships to be . filled. Of
course, the candidates themselves have
nothing to do with the betting which
Is conducted by men who make their
living by picking, winners. Shrewd
politicians who have followed the sit
uation closely incline to the view that
the bettors have it sized up correctly.
A couple of weeks ago Commissioner
Blgelow was favored in the betting,
but in the last few days he has dropped
to third and Sir. Adams has taken his
place. Commissioner Brewster is
ranked fonrth. A few bets have been
made on other candidates, but most
of the money placed is on the candi
dates In the order mentioned.
George L. Baker, candidate for City
Commissioner, will speak at the Shat

noon. There will be a musical pro

feated. "If elected I will abide by the
people's Judgment," said Dr. Parrlsh

city election comes the election for

will be a rest from elections for a few
months. The last Legislature provided
for a referendum election in November
to pass on any measures referred by
the people, but this election will not be
held because the referendum has not
been invoked on a single measure.
Voters at the city election should bear
In mind that an affirmative majority of
U those voting is necessary to author
ize the annexation of St. Johns and
Linnton to Portland. Thus, if 50,000
persons vote, at least 25,001 would have
to vote "yes" to annex St. Johns, and
the same number of affirmatives would
be necessary to annex Linnton. By not
voting on the annexation of these town

Historic Bronz Horses of St. Marks
Removed. 1'rom Danger.
ROUE. June 2. The famous gilded
horses which have adorned for a cen
tury the principal portal of the Cathed
ral of St. Marks at Venice have been
removed from the cathedral to a place
of safety because of the fear that
they miknt be damaged by hostile
aviatqrs or warships.
The four horses of St. Marks, of
bronze, five feet high, are among the
finest of ancient bronzes. They prob
ably once adorned the triumphal arch
of Nero and afterward that of Trajan.
Constantine sent them to adorn the
imperial hippodrome at Constantinople,
whence the Doge Dandolo took them to
Venice in 1204 as the spoils of war.
In 1797 they were carried to Paris
by Napoleon, but in 1815 they were
restored to their former positions by
