raised yesterday by the Western As

cession at the Multnomah Hotel.
In a resolution adopted at the clos

fact that Jitneys and auto buses, with
in the last year, have come into free
and open competition with the railroads
is referred to as a basis for their
complaint that these Jitneys are not
On the other hand, it is pointed
cut that the railroads, which operate
over private rights of way and at
great expense, are subject to severe
regulations, both as to service and as
to rates, and that they contribute
largely to the support of their re
spective communities by payments of
The resolution concludes with the
declaration that' the protection of rail
road investments and the wellbeing of
the public "demand that all automo

K. Drake, of Portland, worthy matron

CIRCCIT JIOGB DAVIS SUSTAINS
CITV IX ORDINANCE PASSED.
Contention of Kdnln- James That Act
Is Delegation of Power and Un
lawful Srlsare Not Upheld.
Portland's motion picture censorship
ordinance, providing for a censorship
board and requiring all pictures to be
approved before they are shown, is
thoroughly legal and valid. Circuit
Judge Davis decided to this effect yes
terday in the case of Edwin James
against the city, in which the validity
of the recently adopted ordinance was
This gives the measure a legal stand
ing unlejs the case is appealed to the
State Supreme Court. It is not known
yet whether an appeal will be taken.
As far as the Circuit Court is concerned
the ordinance is valid and can be en
forced. The measure was passed several
months ago when a censorship board
was appointed by Mayor Albee. The
ordinance requires that before a pic
ture is shown, at a theater It must have
been viewed and approved by the cen
sorship board or by -viewers appointed
by the board. As soon as the board be
came organized enforcement of the pro
visions of the ordinance was started.
Mr. James, manager of the Majestic
Theater, contested the proposition on
the ground that the measure was ille
gal in that it was a delegation of
power on the- part of the City Council
and that the system Involved the con
fiscation of property without due
process of law. It was contended that
the city has no right to pass upon
motion pictures except to the extent of
eliminating those which might be ob
scene. City Attorney LaRoche filed a de
murrer to the complaint in which it
was contended that the measure was
valid in every respect, the delegation
