METER ISSUE IS
Mr. Daly Asks Right to Make
Installations Requested, but
' Mr. Baker Is Opposed.
OTHERS RESERVE DECISION
Heal Kttate Agent Before Council
Demands Removal of Meters and
A No Complains of Methods -Pursued
by Water Bureau.
V have with us once more the
water meter issue. Under the cuidins
hand of Commissioner Daly the Issue
came back smilins; yesterday before the
Council in the form of a request by Mr.
Daly for authority to purchase 1700 or
2000 meters to install on services where
requests for meters have been made.
Apparently the issue recovered from
the Knockout blow administered by the
voters a month asjo yesterday and it
may have some Councilmanic support
in addition to that accorded, it by Mr.
Mr. Daly wanted an expression of the
Council as to the attitude of the mem
bers on the subject, but he received
only an expression from Commissioner
Baker who came out flatfooted apalnst
the purchase of meters in face of the
recent thoroughly decisive vote of the
people. Other members of theCouncil
reserved their opinions until later
even thousrh Mr. Daly urged them to
Intimate their ideas at once.
, Mr. Daly Thinks Matter Obligatory.
Mr. Daly announced that he has sev
eral hundred applications for water
meters and he said he believes the city
Is morally if not leg-ally obliged to
supply these meters inasmuch as a
meter rate is maintained. He declared
that the Water Bureau is a public
service corporation and could be forced
to furnish meters.
"I think the people expressed their
opinion sufficiently clearly on the
meter proposition." said Commissioner
Baker. "I believe the people do not
want them as was evidenced by the re
rent election. Of this there can be no
doubt. Therefore I can see no use in
KoinR to he expense .of buying and in-t-tallinpr
meters where they are to ajive
no general service to the water system,
It is an unnecessary investment and
means that flat rate users will have to
pay for the meters. It doesn't seem like
pood business to add to the Water
Bureau Investment without need."
Mr. Baker Is OppoHfd.
"There are hundreds of people ask
ing for meters and I think the city Is
moraly obliged to furnish them," said
"My child might demand something I
don't think it should have," retorted
Mr. Baker. "The fact that a demand is
made does not mean that I am obliged
to grant the request."
Charles Korell, who was one of the
Council specttators at the session,
gained the floor and demanded that the
Council adopt also the policy of remov
ing meters from premises where they
are not wanted. "If it is right for the
city to put in meters because they are
requested." said he. "it is just as right
.that they should be removed where re
quested. "I have had a number of in
teresting experiences with meters in
houses for which I am agent. Since the
first of the year when the policy of as
sessing water rents to property owners
Instead of tenants was adopted my cli
ents have had many instances where
tenants have taken delight In dunning
up big water bills before moving. The
other day I had to pay a bill of $4.90 on
a five-room house where' a man and
his wife and baby resided.
Land Agent Haa Grievance.
"Another thing in connection with
these meters is that the Water Bureau
refuses absolutely to furnish a bill at
any time except on regular billing
dates. Recently a tenant wax going to
move from a house and I requested the
Water Bureau to furnish me a water
bill up to that date so that I might en
deavor to collect from this tenant. The
bureau refused to give me a bill until
the regular billing date. I paid the
bill as the tenant had left the city."
Commissioner Daly insisted that
members of the Council express their
ideas on the meter subject but he got
no satisfaction except in the case of
Mr. Baker. The others reserved their
opinions until later. Mr. Daly prob
ably will bring the matter up again to
morrow. PAVING BIDS ARE OPENED

HEW RAIL RATE OH
Discrimination Is Charged by
Transportation Bureau of
Chamber of Commerce.
SPOKANE WOULD BENEFIT
Other Goods Also Included In Tar
iff Revision Regarded as Wede
to Cnt Off Portland's Advan
tage Gained by Canal.
Protests were filed yesterday by the
transportation bureau of tha Chamber
of Commerce against the proposed new
distributive rates on structural iron
and steel, wnlch are to go Into effect,
under tariffs recently filed by the car
riers, on July 15.
The new rates show sharp advances
over existing rates, and, according to
the Chamber's pica, would seriously
cripple the business of the big iron
and steel fabricators in Portland.
The present rates on this commodity
from Portland to Kastern Oregon.
Kastern Washington and Idaho vary
from 3S cents to 40 cents for 100
pounds. The proposed rates are from
40 to 45 cents, an average advance of
16 2-3 per cent.
Complaints were filed with both the
Interstate Commerce Commission and
the Oregon Public Utilities Commission,
and an order is asked for poi- pontng
the application of the rates pending a
bearing on the merits of the complaint.
The Chamber of Commerce not only
holds the rates unreasonable per se,
but- declares that they will work a
serious disadvantage to the fabricators
operating in Portland, and be generally
prejudicial to the best interests of the
Discrimination In Allraed.
The alleged disadvantage to Portland
is made all the more pronounced, it is
asserted, when the proposed rates are
considered In connection with the new
rates on the same commodities from
the East to the principal points in the
Northwest, which rates also are to be
come effective on July 15.
The carriers have attempted a com
plete readjustment of their transcon
tinental and distributive rates to meet
the effects of the Panama Canal com
petition. The commercial Interests of Portland
contend that these rates are made for
the purpose of eliminating Portland
and the other Pacific Coast terminals
as distributing centers entirely. In
other words, they assert, the railroads
are seeking to make the rates to Spo
kane so low and distributive rates out
of Portland so high that Spokane will
supersede Portland and Seattle as
While the proposed new rates apply
on a limited number of commodities
only, it is pointed out that with this
leverage the carriers sooner or later
will be able to apply the same rate
principle to all other commodities.
Other Rates bnnged.
In addition to structural iron and
steel, some of the other important
commodities covered by the new sched
ule are canned goods, green coffee,
dry goods. linoleum, nails. wire,
wrought and casttron pipe, aivd heavy
hardware of various kinds.
The Chamber's protest is aimed at
the structural iron and steel rate be
cause the alleged discrimination Is the
most glaring In this particular,
inasmuch as the distributive rates are
the more sharply advanced, although the
transcontinental rates are reduced.
However, the reduction to Spokane is
more pronounced than the reduction to
For instance, the proposed rates on
structural iron and steel from the
Pittsburg district to Spokane on a
minimum of 40,000 pounds Is 11.05; on
a minimum of 50.000 and SO. 000 It is
I. The rates- from Chicago territory
to Spokane are 95 rents on a min
imum of 40.000 pounds, 90 cnt on a
minimum of 50,000 pounds, and 85 cents
on a minimum of 0.000 pounds.
The present rate to Spokane from
Pittsburg is 11.01 on all carload ship
ments, and from Chicago It Is 97 cents.

here, will give Spokane a decided ad

FOUR-CENT RATE UPHELD
Orej-on Sltort Line SuMainrd by
Idaho Vtllltlt'H Commission.
BOISE. Idaho. July 7. 'Special.)
The Public L'tlllly Commission of this
state cannot find the contention of the
Attorney-Jeneral that the rates
charged by the Oregon Short Line on
14 of Its branch and subsidiary lines
feeding into all parts of Southern
Idaho are unfair and discriminatory in
charging 4 rents a mile for passenger
service. The complaint is therefore
dismissed In an order handed down to
day. The commission found that tha Ore
gon Short Line's contention that Its
branch lines were not paying, even
when cliarglng 4 cents mtlesge, was
substantiated by the evidence taken at
the hearing. The Attorney-General
contended patrons of the branch lines
were being dlscrlna'nated against tn
that they had to pay 4 centa passenger
mileage while main-line patrons paid
but 3 cents a mlie.
