Coin'nissloner Mears presided at the
regular session yesterday and was host
at a little farewell party at which he
provided cigars and added more good
cheer through his commendatory re
marks of co-operative work on the part
of his colleagues, which, he said, had
added so mucli to the success of the ad
Work Reviewed 'With Pride.
"When I think of what wo have ac
complished during the past four and a
hair years I feel proud, said Mr. Mears.
"The deepening and general Improve
ment of that part of tha harbor above
the bridges, also advanced work of the
same character but on a larger scale
below, increasing the channel depth
practically five feet, besides construe
tion of two 30-inch steel dredges, lower
ing the tax levy, while other reSDon
sibilitfes were carried on at tho same
time, are some of the things I recall.'
Commissioner O'Reilly led In ex ores
sions of regret that Mr. Mears was
leaving, and as he had declined to re-
call his resignation Mr. O'Reilly moved
mat it do accepted
K. t . Wright, general manasrer of
the Port, reported that It had been de.
termined to operate ail of tho dredges
six run days each week Instead of five
daya and eight hours, as had been the
rule, and thereby he said the, working
litre or eacn or the digging fleet would
be increased 45 hours a month. The
dredze Portland, engaged In redredg
ing the channel in North Portland har

weeks, reported Manager Wright.

TWO FIREMEN KEEP JOBS
St. Johns Men IJelained Because
Familiar With Streets.
K. h Peterson and W. J. Mackey,
who were firemen in the iSt. Johns
station when St. Johns was taken over
by Portland, are to retain their posi
tions. At the request of Mayor Albee
the Municipal Civil Service Board yes
terday agree'd to keep them in the
service on emergency appointment
until the next firemen's examination.
Tho reason for keeping the two is
that they are acquainted with the St.
Johns district and are needed to direct
the other firemen who are not famil
iar with the streets.
EX-OFFICER IS EXONERATED
II. T. Stewart Not Guilty oT Keceiv
ing Stolen Property.
Although R. T. Stewart, ex-patrolman,
was exonerated yesterday by the
Municipal Civil Service Board of buy
ing stolen goods from a burglar, on
which charge he was dismissed from
the police service, tlie Board found
him guilty of negligence of duty and
gave him a suspension of one year
and four months. At the end of that
time he will be placed at the bottom of
the police eligible list.
The findings mean virtually that Mr.
Stewart is out of the police service, but
that after December 1. 1916, he will bo
eligible to get back if ho can. There
will be about SO men ahead of liim on
the waiting list.
