'Move to Take Ouster Case Out
of Court Voted Down by
Albee, Daly, Dieck.
motion of Commissioner Daly. Mr.
Uieck's proposed increases were de
ferred for 90 days. This action was
backed up by Commissioners Baker.
Daly and Bljcelow.
MR. BIGELOW FAVORS PLAN
Majority Considers Taking Question
Vp "With Civil Service Board.
Baker's Motion to Lot Shrln
ers Fly Banner Defeated.
It looked like old days in the City
Council meeting- yesterday when Com
missioner Baker, at the first session
since he became Commissioner, caused
the fur to fly in lively fashion when
he butted up against some of the Coun
cil's standing -policies, which, he de
'clared. are not based upon "good com
The first set-to came when Mr. Baker
Insisted that the Council uphold him In
a resolution he Introduced instructing
City Attorney LaRoche to dismiss the
suit now in the Supreme Court involv
ing the removal of Russell Chamberlain,
an elderly Grand. Army veteran, from
the position of janitor at the City HalL
Mr. Baker declared that he had in
vestigated the case fully and wanted it
dismissed inasmuch as it affected direct
ly his department. The Council, with
the exception of Commissioner Bigelow.
heretofore has stood consistently with
ex-Commissioner Brewster In appealing
the case of the janitor to the court
of last resort.
Principle Said to Be InvlT-d.
As soon as Mr. Baker presented his
resolution an attempt was made to
sidetrack it. Mr. Baker, as of old,
went to bat and tried his best to head
off deferment. Mayor Albee declared
that the case Involved an important
civil service question and was being
appealed for that reason and not be
cause of any desire to oust Mr. Cham
berlain. "It's a mighty poor example to set
at a time like this," declared Mr. Baker.
Here is a man who has served his
country and has given the best part of
his life in serving the city. When he
pets old he is kicked out on claim
that he is unable to give full value
for money paid. It is a mighty poor
precedent for the City of Portland."
"I'm. afraid you do not understand
the circumstances in the case," said
"I do not want to understand them
then," retorted Mr. Baker. "As Com
missioner of Public Affairs I want Mr.
Chamberlain, who is in my department,
to remain. If this case is decided
against him he is out and there is.
nothing I can give him without his
taking a civil service examination
along with others."
Promise of Position Reiterated.
Mayor Albee insisted that the per
sonality of Mr. Chamberlain did not
enter into the case. "It is a case in
volving Important civil service Ques
tions. I have said repeatedly that Mr.
Chamberlain will be cared for if he
loses his case."
"But he will be out of civil service
Jurisdiction," declared Mr. Baker. ""He
will have no protection against future
administrations. I don't think you un
derstand the feeling in this community
in this case. I have been over thin city
from one end to the other and 1 know
how the people feel."
Commissioner Daly then made a
motion that the resolution be held up
until a conference could be had with,
the Civil Service Board to determine
whether or not Mr. Chamberlain could
be kept under civil service if his case
went against him in the Supreme Court.
Mr. Baker protested and insisted that
the Question be put to vote forthwith.
He protested against any delay what
ever. Mr. Daly put his proposition in
the form of a motion and it carried
by vote of three to two. Commissioner
Dieck and Mayor Albee voted with Mr.
Daly in holding tip Mr. Baker's demand
until after a conference with the Civil
Civil Service Board to Meet.
Immediately after, the Council ad
journed Mr. Baker got in touch with
members of the Civil Service Board and
called a meeting for 5 o'clock. At this ses
sion It was found that if the case in the
Supreme Court is decided against Mr.
Chamberlain he loses his position, and
the Civil Service Board or the Council
. are powerless to put him back except
in a non-civil service position, which
would assure him no continuity of
service or. in other words, making his
position purely political.
Mr. Daly did not indicate his posi
tion when this fact was brought forth,
although Commissioner Baker tried to
get him to express his opinion. He
says he wishes to confer with City
Attorney LaRoche. It is almost cer
tain, however, that Mr. Baker will win
Jiib fight and the Chamoerlain cane.
btch has been the cause of trouble
yj r nearly two years, will be dropped.
Bannri Question Stirs.
Fur again flew when Mr. Baker
asked the Council to permit the
Shriners to put a banner over a street
for the coming convention. It was ex
plained to him that the Council has
adopted the policy of refusing to per
mit any banners on the streets here
after. "You want ( to make this a conven
tion city and' then prohibit banners?"
asked Mr. Baker.
Commissioner Dieck said that the
whole proposition was based upon the
city beautiful . idea. "The policy is in
the interest of an artistic city," ex
plained Mr. Dieck.
This aroused Mr. Baker again. "We
ought to change our attitude." he said,
"so that we can look a little at the
life of the city on a common-sense
basis and not pay so much attention to
the art Furthermore I think one of
the things we should look into at once
is the proposition of so much efficiency
and so few results."
This was taken as a slap at Mr.
Dieck's efficiency policies and his poli
cies regarding special work in hla de
partment which has been the cause of
considerable discussion in recent
Slap Made at Mr. Blxelow.
Mayor Albee took a fling at Commis
sioner Bigelow during a discussion of
the request of Commissioner Dieck for
Increases in salaries for some of his
employes. The increases as proposed
involved a total outlay of $175 a month
for S2 employes.
Mayor Albee and Mr. Dieck took the
position that efficient service should be
rewarded regardless of prosperous or
hard times. Commissioner Bigelow took
the stand that times are-not right for
salary increases. "Business houses are
cutting wages instead of increasing
them." he said. "It's the wrong time to
increase wages and especially when the
city already is paying more wages than
"Mr. Bigelow. you voted rently for
-the $3-a-day-minimum-wage ordinance
for laborers?" asked Mayor Albee.
"I did." replied Mr. Bigelow.
"Do you know of any business house
or private concern that is paying labor
ers $3 a day?" asked the Mayor.
Mr. Bigelow made no reply. On
HOLDUP MAN DESCRIBED
John Hamilton, Shot Three Times,
May Escape WKhout Amputation.
A description of the man who at
tempted to hold up John Hamilton, bar
tender of a saloon at 517 North Twenty

WHAT IT MEANS
Many thousands of women are nor-a-days
paying attention to. physical
culture and the proper exercise of their
body muscles, where, thirty years ago
or fifty years ago there was no thought
expended on this science, which is
quite necessary to physical beauty. The
reason the Greeks, both men and wom
en, excelled In beautiful and symmet
rical forms waa because of the atten
tion they paid to the proper exercise.!
Then, too, they were untrammeled by
corsets, shoes and the inconveniences
of clothing. To the minds of some
women the Idea of physical exercise
conveys only the Idea of hard fatiguing
work. Mild exercise continued day aft
er day is best for the body and spirits
and health. Without proper exercise
there can be no health, and without
health there can be no real beauty.

sound remedial value of Dr. Pierce's
