ha been started by the committee ap
pointed for that purpose.
The committee I comprised of City
Attorney LaRoche. Richard W. Hon

Nary. The measure they will prepare
will proTide for the Issuance of bonds
whereby the city may obtain money to

property will be sold. The plan, while
Involving a bond Issue. Involves no ex

the property purchased.
Deeteloa Made Last Fall.
The plan was decided on by the City
Council last Fall when the question of
levying; a special tax of 1 mill or $300.
000 to meet the delinquent Interest was
tip for decision. In place of levying
the tax It was decided to try the bond
system. Th success of this depends
n the attitude of the voting public
If th voter should reject the bond
plan the city will face the problem of
making an emergency appropriation
front th reneral fund of about $300,000
to meet the delinquency. The Council
figured that while such an appropria
tion would hit the city hard financially,
It can be done provided It la possible to
maintain a programme of strictest
economy during; the year. This pro
gramme la being; carried on now. the
Council bavins; adopted a resolution to
this effect, which resolution la brought
up every time there I a request or de
mand for an expenditure which can be
Sidetracked.
Should the ballot measure fall to
pas It will be necessary for the Coun
cil to raise money to meet the delln
quency of the big; real estate concerns
next year by direct taxation. The only
alternative would be for the city to
default In payment of Interest on its
bonds, which would result In a serious
impairment of the city's credit.

have become delinquent. Some of the
property Is being bought In by private
concern and persona and some of It

aaie will be continued throughout the
year.
If th voter authorise th bond the
city will become a bidder on all prop
arty offered and will buy th property
en whloh no one els will bid. The
city will derive Interest and penalties
from th delinquent property so sold,
sufficient to meet th Itnerest and re

Another delicious dish which was
prepared yesterday was scalloped roe.
As a rule the roe. which is removed
from the sole, is thrown away because
the housewife does not know how

roe into some thick cream sauce which

league obtained an option on the Port
land Damascus outfit a month ago and ,
Is now striving to raise the funds
needed to take the plant. "Over half

The plan. It is learned, is to make I

handling every phase of the business. '
If put into successful operation It
probably will put out of business sev
eral creameries and pasteurization
planta now operating in Portland. The
Dairymen's League claims a large
membership of producers tributary to
Portland and Is dissatisfied with the
methods of the creameries.
"It is primarily an effort to get rid
of the middleman, the creamery which
paya the producer as little as possible
for his milk and charges the public as
much aa possible." said Mr. Katz. "We
believe that by having one big modern
plant It will ba possible to co-ordinate
routes and handle the milk supply in
such manner as to make unnecessary
any further advnees in milk prices.
"For example, each dairyman Is now
distributing milk on a route of his own.
These route lnterlap and overlap until
there Is vast waste by the duplication.
The plan Is for the one big plant to
have one delivery system and deliver
raw and pasteurized milk Just the same
as at present, except that duplication
or overlapping of routes will be dis
continued. Users favoring one special
brand of milk will be able to obtain this
brand by this system and still there
will not be the waste energy necessary
at present. This Is a proposition being
strongly urged now by the Federal
Government as a war conservation
measure."
The amount Involved in the dairy
men' transaction has not been made
public, but It is understood that the
league will take over the greater part
of the stock of the Portland Damascus
Company, which is capitalized for 1225,-
000. The league has a membership of
100 dairymen.

Arbitrary Enforcement of 8-Hour

TTPKEEP man or bouse carpenter Is
the title syven to inaries rice
by himself. It being his defense against
a charge of vagrancy, that he was em
ployed In that capacity by a woman
In a North End rooming establishment,
when he was called before Municipal
Judge Rossman yesterday afternoon.
Price was quite indignant over his
arrest by Policemen Teeters and
Schum. of the war emergency squad,
fearing that It would injure his repu
tation In the community as a carpen
ter, although Judge Rossman and he
disagreed over the situation: in fact,
the Judge frankly stated his belief
that Mr. Price was not a carpenter at
all. but was camouflaging.
"What I think I should do with you.
Is to put you In Jail for six months and
give you a limited fine," was the man
ner In which the Judge addressed Mr.
Pries. "I havs no idea that you were
doing much carpentering or upkeep
Ing down there, but as this is your
first visit here I will not inflict the
penalty this time; but be careful."
Th defendant has a home on the
East Side and drives about the city
in an automobile, a thing which regu
lation carpenters seldom do, according
to police testimony, and his hands did
not have the roughness of surface
usual to tradesmen. Furthermore, the
particular house In which he was ar
rested, the evidence showed. Is rather
small to require th services of such a
man.

Workmen In Portland lumber mills
yesterday Initiated a movement for cir
culating petitions among their co
workers voicing their objections to the
proposed arbitrary enforcement of an
eight-hour day on the lumber manu
facturers of the Pacific Northwest by
the Government and excluding from the
decree the lumber mills of the Southern
states. This protest was started by
employes of the Portland Lumber Com
pany and will be extended to other
mills In this locality.
These workmen are not opposed to
the shorter work day. They favor the
eight-hour plan If it Is made to apply
generally to all lumber producing sec
tions. But they recognize the Injus
tice of imposing such a rule on the
manufacturers of the Paclflo North
west alone and permitting competitive
manufacturers of the South to operate
on a 1U or ll-bour-day basis.
Many of the leading Portland lumber
manufacturers left last night for Seat
tie to attend a meeting of the West
Coast Lumber Manufacturers' Associa
tion scheduled for today. This gather
lng was arranged prior to announce
ment of the President's Intention of
enforcing the eight-hour workday In
the lumber' mills of this section. Al
though other business awaits consider
ation, the chief topic of the conference
will be the proposed shorter workday.
Among the Portland men who will
attend this meeting are: Ray B. Early,
of the Oregon Lumber Company; George
M. Cornwall, of the TImberman, and E.
D. Klngsley, president of the Western
Oregon Lumber Company.

CITY ASKS PORT TO PAY
Reconstruction of Sewer Damaged
by Dredger Cost $4035.61.
The Port of Portland will be asked
by the city to pay $2837.21 of a total of
J4035.S1 for the reconstruction of a
sewer in Russell street which was
wrecked the latter part of last year
by a fill made by the Port of Portland.
The city had to rebuild 859 feet of 24
inch sewer.
The city will pay for rebuilding the
outfall of the sewer at the foot of
Russell street, that work being neces
sary not as a result of the filling by
the port. This cost will be the differ
ence between the $2837.21 charged to
the Port of Portland and the total cost
of all the work performed on the
sewer, 14035.61.

CITIZENS ARE CARELESS
Cost of Cleaning Streets Slight Be
Reduced Materially.
The cost of cleaning streets in Port
Iand can be reduced materially If the
public will discontinue the practise of
dumping refuse in the streets. So
says Superintendent Donaldson, of the
street cleaning and sprinkling bureau,
in his annual report filed yesterday
with City Commissioner Bigelow.
The cost of street cleaning, he says,
has increased owing to increased wages
of men and Increased cost of materials.
He says a great saving could be ef
fected if the citizens would not litter
the streets with debris from yards and
walks and would not leave sawdust and
other stuff In the streets after fuel
deliveries. Also he urges grading con'
tractors to use more care in the nan
dling of dirt being moved from exca'
vations to dumping places.
