CRISIS IMP ENDS It!
FINANCES OF CITY
At Present Rate of Expendi
ture General Fund Will Not
v Last Through Year.
PAYROLL CUT IS PROBABLE
Commissioners Daly and Bigelow
and ex-Oomniissioner Brewster
Blamed for Situation, Owing
to Attitude op Budget.
Owing to the fact that the city can
not avert striking- the financial rocks
eoon after December 1 because of the
too lavish trimming of the tax levy
for this year at the budget meetings
of the Council last Fall, great uneasi
ness exists among city employes and
particularly those comparitively new
In the service. It is feared the city
will be forced to retrench to the
extent of dropping many employes.
If the city continues at Its present
rate with its present big payroll and
expends the $25,000 provided for a
detention home for women and $40,000
for new fire stations and preserves its
credit on Its bonds, it will come out at
the end of the year with a deficit of
$48,000 in the general fund, according
to figures compiled by Auditor Barbur.
A balance of $844,000 was left at the
end of last year.
Spring; Revenue Small.
Between December 1 and March 1
the city will receive only a small
amount of revenue, so that there will
be no money to meet the payroll or
other expenses. No warrant or other
note of Indebtedness can be issued
unless the money is In the treasury
to pay it. The city's expenses between
December 1 and .March 1 will be about
If the detention home and fire sta
tion appropriations are not used the
deficit will be wiped, out ana mere win
be $17,000 balance in the general fund.
This would run the city three days.
The only thing left to do, it appears.
is to cut forces, it is mis possiDimy
that has caused so much anxiety at
the City Hall since Auditor Barbur pre
pared his statement Bhowing nnanciai
No step has been' taken toward cut
ting forces yet, as the. Council has
ignored the strained condition which
confronts the city. It is said by those
familiar with the situation that the
condition is really critical.
Blame Laid to Three.
Blame for the conditions Is being
laid upon Commissioners Bigelow and
Daly and ex-Commissioner Brewster.
They stood together in the cutting of
the tax levy last Fall In spite of the
fact that actual figures of costs of op?
eratlon showed clearly that the levy
they made would not raise sufficient
revenue. The facts were called to their
attention by Chief Deputy City Auditor
Grutze who had the expenditures
figured out. However, the conditions
were ignored and the levy was cut two-
tenths of a mill. This, in addition to
the loss of $300,000 in liquor license
revenue, is held responsible for the
financial crash which Is impending.
Those employes who are not fearing
the loss of position are doing consider
able figuring about how they will be
able to meet their expenses during
the six weeks or two months preceding
ilarch 1, when the city will have no
money In the Treasury to pay its em
COXVEXTIOX TO SEE FOUNDER, DR.
STILL, AS CAUGHT BT CAMERA.
Pictures of "Old Doctor" on Campus
of School Show Characteristic
Poses and Gestures.
Motion pictures taken of Dr. Andrew
Taylor Still, founder of ostheopathy, at
Kirksville, Mo., on June 3, will be
shown at the National convention of
osteopaths to be held in Portland Au
gust 2 to 6. The pictures were taken
by E. B. Steene, special representa
tive or the Pathe Freres Film Company.
The weather was fine and splendid
pictures were obtained of the "Old
Doctor" in characteristic poses and
gestures and in typical surroundings.
It required a lot of hard work and
scheming to bring about the success
ful culmination of this undertaking and
the credit for it is due to the initia
tive and persistency of Dr. O. C. Fore
man, class of January, 1916. For more
man six months he negotiated to get
the operator on the ground at a time
when everything would be auspicious.
Only on the morning of the event
was Dr. Still told about the plan. He
had some objections at first but later
The pictures were taken on the lawn
of the Still residence and showed the
"Old Doctor" coming out to meet a
procession of the faculty and students
of the school, with the graduating
class in cap and gown, and greeting
them, making an address and demon
strating some osteopathic technique.

The Greshara fruitgrowers cannery is
working on Law ton blackberries. The
raspberry and loganberry crops have
been injured to such an extent by the
continuous rains that it will be neces

get ripe before any are canned. This
shortage of berries will mean a bie: loss

Manager James Sterling: has Just
returned from a visit at Puyallup. where
he inspected the cannery there, one of
the most successful in the Pacific

FIRST CLUB IS SOLD
September Delivery Brings 92
Cents on Local Board.
PRESENT DEMAND LIMITED
Offers for Prompt Wheat Are Not
Materially Changed Acreage
in Xorthern Hemisphere Is
- Increased This Year.
The first sale of new-crop club wheat
occurred at the Merchants' Exchange yes
terday. The price was 82 cents and the
deal involved one lot of 5000 bushels for
delivery in September. Following the sals
the asked price of September club was ad
vanced to 03 cents.
The price paid was considerably above re
cent bids. As was the case last week with
the first sales of new fortyfold. buyers
found It necessary to come up to sellers
views In order to set wbeat.
Offers for September bluestem were ad
vanced 6 cents, but bids for the same de
livery of other sorts wers unchanged. Spot
bids were irregular and the demand light.
The coarse grains were also dull and gen
erally lower on bid.
The domestlo flour market Is quiet. There
has been no regular redaction by any of
the mills since the 30 basis was established,
bnt this price has not been maintained for
some time past. There Is no fixed quota
tion now, but the general market is around
35.70. Mill feeds are holdlnc steady.
Argentine wheat shipments for the week
were 660,000 bushels, compared with 211 11,
000 bushels last week and 312.000 bushels
last year. Corn shipments for the week
were 5,100,000 bushels.
Preliminary estimates of ths respective
areas sown to wheat for the 1915 harvest
have been issued up to date by eight coun
tries of the Northern Hemisphere. The to
tal acreage sown to the Spring and Win
ter varieties in these countries amounts to
153,825,000 acres, compared with 143.032,
000 acres In 1014 and 140.0S7.000 acres In
1013, an increase in the current year over
that of the two preceding; ones of about 7
and 9 per cent, respectively. The total area
annually sown to wheat In the entire North
ern Hemisphere is usually estimated, as far
as official figures are available, at approxi
mately 240,000,000 acres.
- The eight countries comprise all the
principal wheat-producing countries of the
Northern Hemisphere, excepting the Rus
sian empire, whose Spring and Winter
wheat acreage during each of the past few
years has averaged about 00.000,000 acres.
Though the complete official figures for the
present season have not yet appeared, com
mercial opinion inclines to belief in a Rus
sian acreage not greatly below normal.

which official estimates have been made in
1015 are shown below. In comparison with
