THE MORNING- O REG ONI AN, WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 8. 1016."
El OF JITNEYa IS
Franchise, Which Union Has
Not Accepted, Is Only Hope
ISSUE TO COME- UP TODAY
Big Demonstration Before Council la
Scheduled to Induce Repeal of
Present Ordinance, Which
Cnless something: unforeseen happens.
Jitneys will be a thing of the past in
Portland one v.-eek from today. There
is only one way they can remain in
operation, and that is to agree to ac
cept a franchise which will make them
give service beyond the present close
in districts and under conditions of
regulation as to service, comparable
with the regulations imposed on street
cars. Under the direction of the Central
Labor Council, with which the Jitney
Drivers' Union Is affiliated, a big- jitney
demonstration will be staged at this
morning's meeting- of the City Coun
cil in an effort to get the Council
to repeal an ordinance passed July 19
making it necessary for the jitneys to
have a franchise by November 15. Re
peal of this ordinance will be demanded
by the jitney people.
Majority AEalsit Repeal.
To repeal the ordinance before No
vember 15 will require unanimous vote
of the City Council, and it is certain
that some of the Council members will
not vote for it. Mayor Albee and Com
missioners Baker and Dieck have all
publicly expressed themselves as op
posed to the Jitney operating unless it
does so under restrictions and regula
tions similar to those imposed on the
streetcars under Its franchises.
This situation means, therefore, that
the ordinance will not be repealed by
November 15, and if the jitneys con
tinue to operate after that it will
merely be because the police do not
enforce the law.
The burden of obtaining a franchise
has been imposed by the Council on the
Jitneys. The only franchise applica
tion made by the Jitneys so far has
been a proposal which would give the
Jitney Drivers' Union a monopoly on
the jitney business and would allow
the union jitneys to run as they please.
The Council has refused to grant this
franchise. At the request of the Coun
cil Commissioner Dieck has negotiated
with the Jitney Drivers'. Union and put
up iu it me Duraen or framing and ac
cepting- a reasonable franchise. All
that has been done along this line has
ueen me framing of a list of routes.
These are beine- rnnRtiiprcH K.. -u
neys, but undoubtedly will not be ac
cepted. Franchise la Daly's Idea.
Commissioner Daly got the jitneys
into their present hole by putting
through the ordinance requiring the
franchise. He put it through because,
he said, it was impossible to regulate
the Jitneys in any other way. When
the Council got to talking franchise
they came face to face with the ques
tion of a square deal for the streetcar
company. The question of Imposing
strict regulation of many kinds on the
streetcars under its franchise and let
ting the jitneys have the 'same privi
lege without these restrictions, bobbed
up as manifestly unfair.
The Council chamber will be packed
by the jitney drivers and labor union
officials and followers this morning for
the purpose of making a strong demon
stration in behalf of the jitneys. It is
expected the plea will be in vain.
A call for this morning's demonstra
tion was made in the Labor Press a
few days ago. The appeal for "all
hands to turn out" Is based in this
official publication of the Central Labor
Council on the ground that the Port
land Railway. Light & Power Company
is "unfair" and that the Jitney Drivers
Union is a loyal member of .the Central

of the Willamette River boats for 42
days because of the shallowness nf t,
lower lock chamber, the Oregon City
canal and locks are again in service.
A week of rain has raised the river to
such a height that a ledge of rock in
the lower chamber, the bar to naviga

At one time during the rainless

Although the Government has
dredged a six-foot channel from Port
land to a point 20 miles above here
and a large sum of money has been ap
propriated by Congress to improve the
locks and considerable work has been
done, no effort has been made to deepen
this lower chamber, which annually
stops practically all traffic on the river
between Portland and up-v-alley towns.

Captain A. W. Graham, of the Yellow

steamer Grahamona to Corvallis, the
steamer Pomona to Salem and the
steamer Oregona to Dayton, said yes
terday that farmers in the Valley ad
jacent to the river could not move
potatoes for the California market
owing to the congestion, onions and
otner vegetables being restricted
well, so that would curtail the move
ment to a degree, yet there was an

Steamer Chester to Operate rollow
lng Iiong Period of Idleness.
For the first time since July 29.
when the extreme low water season
was experienced, the little steamer
Chester, of the Kellogg Transportation
Company's line, will make a trip from
Kelso to Toledo today. The Cowlitz
River remained at such a stage during
the season that the Chester, which is
among the EmalHfit stern-wheelers on
the globe, has been unable to operate.
During the worst of the period the
steamer Joseph Kellogg, from Portland,
was prevented from reaching Kelso
with a large load of freight and the
Chester was in service as a transfer
steamer between Kelso and the mouth
of the river. .
The steamer Harvest Queen was
pressed into service again last night
on the Portland-Astoria route to handle
freight that has accumulated and the
steamer Lurline is plying between Port
land and Camas, while the Jessie Har-
kins Is being overhauled. -With the
Upper Willamette River service re
stored as far as Corvallls, the present
head of navigation, the river fleet is
about normal as to numbers.

Harbor Police Build Tender.
In these days of economic adminis
tration of the harbor patrol service
membership is resorting to home man
ufacture principles and the latest to
be turned out is a skiff for the use
of the officers. It is Impossible to
use the launch for inspection beneath
docks and often it is found best to
seek certain information or watch
suspects from a skiff rather than a
powerboat because of the noise of the
engine, so Patrolman Hansen and En
gineer Prehn put in their spars time
on a skiff that is a credit to the boat
builder's art. As the harbor force
looks after all painting on the station
and launch, also repairs, they have
managed to get along on limited ap
propriations. Uner Gets Election News at Sea.

Local and Eastern Exchangee Are Closed
With the local and Eastern grain ex
changes closed yesterday on account of ths
election, no effort was made to rarry on
business In the wheat market. The crop
Is so closely sold up that dealers do not look
for any extended period of activity during
the remainder of the season.
Commenting on the general situation, an
Eastern broker WTltes:
"After a healthy reaction of 8c to 10c,
prices have developed renewed strength.
Tho commercial situation Is stronger than
it has ever been, and barring some unex
pected feature outslds of ths pnrely cora
