lately was increased , $5000 and the
Commission proceeded to cut various
jtems. Two per cent was allowed lor
delinquencies in the collection of
taxes. The 1915 budget was $164,998,13.
A summary of the results of yes
terday's meeting shows that for the
office of the Commission $13,375 was
asked in salaries, which amounted to
$10,650 in the 1915 estimate, $8850 be

Salaries at St. Johns Dock Cat.
For supplies on that dock $2830 was
asked, $1248.44 was the figure last
year and $2050 was allowed. On Dock
No. 2 salaries were first estimated at
$5325 and were $3037 in 1915 and the
Commission allowed $5025. Supplies
there, which included the paving of
Kast Water street, were estimated at
$5981.69. last year being $1079.74 and
$1216 was allowed. On Dock No. 3,
St. Johns, the request for $2085 in
salaries was cut to $650.
The city has had that property only
eince the annexation of St. Johns and
expenses were $135 for salaries, so
only a wharfinger at $75 a month
and the present aged watchman at $10
a month were permitted, the Commis
sion deciding to maintain tlie public
section of the dock in the daytime for
the present. In reducing the esti
mate for Dock No. 2 it was ordered
that the cost of paving Cast Water
ttreet be taken care of by bond is
sue. Insurance Not Reduced.
In the matter of taking care of
fire insurance $2005 was asked for as
compared with $5366 last year, and an
increase was voted to $2055 In lia
bility insurance no cut was made,
$1559.30 being asked for and allowed.
The figure in the 1915 estimate was

lowed as against $00,629 last year.
The Commissioners were tied on a
vote to allow a draftsman and field
inspector, salaries of which aggregate
$2850, but Commissioner Selling was
not present and the matter will be
considered at another meeting this
week, as the budget is to be filed Mon
day. It was said that the Commis

It was voted to employ one ste

of the wharfinger at Dock 2 from
$150 to $125 a month and the salary
of a locomotive crane driver at Dock
No. 1 was ordered increased from $7 5
to $90 a month.
William JIacMaster. heading a com
mittee from the Chamber of Com
merce, said they found it unneces
sary to suggest to the Commission
its affairs as set forth in the budget,
that it was felt that the members had
clone excellent work in the past and at
a time when they worked under dis
advantages and that the dock project
probably could not have been handled
More Bonds for Docks loon.
He said that instead of the respon
sibilities of the Commission being
about ended as regards new work, as
had been mentioned, he felt certain
that the taxpayers , would authorize
more bonds issued as there would
have to be more accommodations for
shipping with the increase in the com
merce of the Pacific that must follow
the war. He also believed that the
total bond issues for dock purposes
would ultimately bo $10,000,000 to $12.-
F. C. Knapp, when asked regarding
his ideas as to the St. Johns dock,
said he felt that it should be kept
; ree to the public as Docks No. 1 and
1!, not continuing a lease for the upper
leck at $200 a month, which was in
effect when the city took over the
property. The lease expires in June, 1916.

his old love yesterday when he was

Opponents of Marching Are
Denounced by . Multno
PREPAREDNESS IS URGED
Defenses Unfit, Munitions and Arms
Inadequate and Army Too Small
to Defend Any Possession Held,
Says Senator Chamberlain.
Resolutions urging National prepar
edness for defense and denouncing:
peace propagandists who oppose
marching?, in the public schools, lest it
inspire militarism in the pupils, were
adopted unanimously last night at the
regular meeting of the Multnomah Bar
Association. A committee composed of
James H. McMenamin, T. B. McDevitt
and H. L. Lyon was named to transmit
resolutions to the School Board favor
ing such training in the schools as will
fit boys for serving in the Army if
called on for purposes of defense.
A resolution was adopted favoring
steps by the Federal Government to put
the country in a position to defend it
self and copies will be sent each Sena
tor and Representative in Congress.
Propaganda Is Denounced.
George S. Shepherd moved that it was
the sense of the association that it had
no patience with the pacifists who op
pose marching in the schools. He re
ferred somewhat caustically to the ac
tion of the School Board in having sent
a Portland teacher to The Hague Peace
Conference, with the result that the
delegate opposes marching in the local
schools, lest they become imbued with
the military spirit.
The resolution was framed so that
the association went on record as "de
nouncing" such propaganda.
The stand taken by the attorneys
followed an address by Senator Cham
berlain, who chose to speak on the
problem of national defense, and told
of the complete unpreparedness of the
"We are absolutely unprepared," he
said, "in men, in arms, defenses and
munitions. We have not arms and
munitions enough to arm the militia of
this country. We have, in the country
and insular possessions, about 100,000
troops. In this country there are about
25,000 soldiers, the bulk of which are
on "the Mexican bqrder. Our mobile
army is not fully officered. In Hawaii,
Alaska, the Philippines and other places
are our troops, but there are not enough
in any one place to defend it.
Detrnsts Declared Unfit.
"Arms and munitions factories, with
a single exception in Illinois, are all in
New England, New York and Pennsyl
vania, so that in the event of invasion
and capture of that district, we would
be helpless as far as getting equip
ment from those sources.
"It is a mistake to believe that the
United States is able to protect itself
against attack. The defenses we have
in the United States today are abso
lutely unfitted to withstand attack as
war is now waged.
"Every institution in this country
that receives money from the Federal
Government should put in military
training. Every public school that re
ceives money from the taxpayers should
be compelled to teach the boys some
thing that would fit them for military
service if called on. There is no finer
exercise than military drill.
"There are those who oppose march
ing in the public schools. I regret to
say we , have others in this country,
Carnegie and his cult, who foster the
spirit that, had it prevailed in 1776.
would have resulted in the country
never being free, but we would still
be a colony of Great Britain.
Munitions AVouId Last Few Hour.
"We ought to train the young men
of this country, despite the cries of
the pacifists that we would not in that
way be training soldiers, but men who
want war. I would rather have the
military spirit in this country than the
spirit of pusillanimity fostered by Car
negie and others of that school."
In ansyer to a question Senator
Chamberlain said he had heard it as
serted that if all the ammunition in
the country were shot simultaneously
by the military forces it would last
but four or five hours. "Of course,"
he said, "it would not happen that all
the artillery and infantry would be
firing at once." '
Senator Chamberlain said every pas
senger who went aboard the Lu.sitania
took his life in his hands, as ample
warnings had been posted before the
steamer sailed from New York. How
ever, he said, the President acted in
the only way consistent with right,
and American citizens must be allowed
to travel the seas on either neutral or
belligerent ships if they so wish. He
declared it to be the duty of every
American to stand behind the Presi
dent and uphold his hands in the pres

DUNCAN WRITES TO EDITOR
OF PORTLAND NEWS
The following letter ha3 been ad
dressed to the editor of Portland
News by Robert G. Duncan, Secre
tary of Portland Grocers & Mer
chants' Association, It is self-explanatory.
PORTLAND, Sept, 28. (To the Edi
tor of the Portland News.) In "Please
Answer This" you go a long way to
make It appear that produce from local
fields was burned by the ton before
the establishment of the public mar
ket. In doing this you take pains to
blame both growers and commission
men. You accuse grocers of doing
nothing and openly brand the commis
sion men "hogs and robbers."
Such assertions cannot be too se
verely condemned. No well informed
man of any calling, who respects his'
reputation for fidelity to facts, would
go on record with such misinforma
tion and malice.
Every man with brains enough to
grease a gimlet knows the commis
sion men never handled local produce.
Every farmer will tell you he sold to
grocers and peddlers. Grocers never
bought of commission men when local
growers could supply the demand.
Will you dispute this statement?
Will' you again twist facts to bolster
the cause of a few scalawags? Maybe
you will say local farmers approve the
Do you still wish to continue in er
ror after being shown where you
blundered? Would you bolster your
misinformation with stubbornness?
Then state plainly that local farmers
formerly tried to sell through com
mission men; that their produce was
burned by the ton; that our commis
sion men are a band of robbers; our
grocers a set of fools.
Make it plain. Don't tack it to the
bottom of a long hypothetical ques
tion. Go on record in plain English
and in future we will be able to place
For my part I am willing to credit
the News with sincerity and attribute
your assertions to the machinations of
the man for whom you speak.
If you are sincerely interested in the
local farmer you will speedily examine
his predicament, brought about by
Bigelow's benefactions to distant ship
pers, and set about advocating his
cause instead of slandering the busi
ness men who make your paper pos
sible. If perchance Bigelow has sought to
mislead the News into the quicksands
of his political morass by placing it
in a false light with the business men
of Portland. I can but express the hope
that your paper will fare better with
advertisers than did a former mouth
piece or-our lately risen ribbon count
But as I was saying, local farmers
never sold through commission men;
local produce was never burned by the
ton to create a monopoly; Front street
merchants are not "hogs and rob
bers"; grocers are not fools, and the
newspaper that makes such assertions
deserves the contempt of business men
the world around.
