District Attorneys of Counties

SUIT PREVIOUSLY ORDERED
Bridge Commission Has Heated
Meeting Over Division of Reve
nue, but Executive Gets
Board to Try Settlement.
Governor Withycombe, working sin
gle-handed against the entire member
ship of the Interstate Bridge commis
sion, yesterday succeeded In spreading
oil upon the troubled waters, when his
plea for arbitration was heeded after
the Commission previously had adopted
a resolution to take the entire toll
division controversy Into the Federal
Governor 'Withycombe characterized
the contemplated Federal Court pro
ceedings as child's play and an evasion
of duty. At the outset of the meeting
his proposal was defeated by a 6-to-l
vote, but Just before adjournment was
taken, and after the meeting had pro
duced several heated verbal encounters,
it was decided to follow his advice.
Prosecutor to Be Arbiters.
His proposal Is to have District At
torney Evans of Multnomah County and
District Attorney Blair of Clarke
County make a thorough investigation
of the entire bridge question and, if
possible, submit their findings and rec
ommendations to the August meeting
of the Commission. Then, if it is
found that the two District Attorneys
cannot reach some Just settlement, the
matter can be taken Into the Federal
Court In the nature of a friendly suit.
Incidentally, In the course of his re
marks to the Commission, the Governor
expressed the hope that the day is not
far distant when there will be no tells
exacted on the Interstate bridge, and
that th people of Oregon and Wash
ington may Intermingle without being
compelled to pay tribute either to
Clarke or Multnomah counties for the
privilege of traveling on the public
Governor Stop. Debate.
After some little time had been con
sumed In a heated controversy In which
Commissioners Holman and Muck of
Multnomah County and Commissioners
Kiggins and Carson of Clarke County
had taken the chief parts. Governor
"Withycombe quietly called attention
to the fact that the Commission was
further away from a settlement than
It was at the outset of the meeting.
"It seems to me that this Commission
is evading its duty," charged the Gov
ernor, after- a tentative agreement to
take the fight into the courts had
been reached. "We are simply delaying
the issue and It Is nothing more than
child's play. I don't see why we can
not get together right here and reach
some agreement which will be fair to
Compromise Is Offered.
As a proposed compromise, in which
both counties would participate In the
game of "give and take," the Governor
suggested that Clarke County get two
fifths of all tolls which are received
from the Portland Railway, Light
Power Company, and two-sevenths of
all tolls from all other traffic. In sug
gesting this compromise, he called at
tention to tle fact that the interurban
cars used only the bridge proper, while
the vehicle and foot traffic used the
long approaches on trie Oregon side
of the bridge.
This proposed settlement, however,
was unsatisfactory to the Clarke Coun
ty Commissioners, who stoutly con
tended that they were entitled to a
straight two-fifths division of all tolls.
In support of this contention. State

Auditor Carpenter, of Washington, ad
dressed the meeting and declared that
Clarke County, under the state law,
must demand a two-fifths division,

bond Issue compaign, spoke along
Mr. Muck Join Governor.
Commissioner Muck, who first raised
the question of tolls division, said that
as a purely business proposition he
felt that Multnomah County Is entitled
to five-sevenths of the tolls, but he was
willing to support Governor Wlthy
combe's compromise offer and was also
willing that the entire question should
be arbitrated by the two District At
torneys. In the course of the controversy
Commissioner Muck said he realized
that Clarke County needed what money
it could get from the bridge tolls be
cause of the heavy expense to which it
had been put, and this statement
brought a quick retort from Commis
sioner Carson that Clarke County could
look after Its own welfare without
any outside assistance.
"Tour people are already getting 90
cents out of every dollar in Vancouver,"
chimed In Commissioner Kiggins.
Offer 3Iado to Sell.
"Pay Clarke County the $500,000 it
put into the bridge and you can have
it all to yourselves," was another offer
of Commissioner Kiggins.
District Attorney Evans was in at
tendance at the meeting and told the
commission that the entire controversy
might develop further complications if
it were taken Into the Federal Court.
He said there were so many ques
tions to be decided that the commis
sion might be worse off than before.
He voiced his approval or governor
Withycombe's proposal to effect a set
tlement outside the courts if possible.
. Under the agreement, as Ilnally
reached, the commission will continue
to pay Clarke County two-svenths of
the net tolls until such a time as some
final determination' is made of the
question. The question as to the pro
rata cost of maintaining the lighting
system and other similar questions
arising out of the tolls controversy
will likewise be held In abeyance.

BAKER. Or.. July 10. (Soecial.)
Ordinances against picketing, slurring
the name of the President of the United

had been included in the ordinances.
The second was an anti-plcketing
ordinance, which provides for the arrest
of anyone who ventures to coerce,
either by force, speech or literature,
any employe from continuing at work.
The penalty is a fine of $100 to $203
or from 60 to 100 days in Jail.
