"But Is the government secure?" the
Impertinent Interviewer persisted, de

There was no question of success
Mr. Sunday gave the reckless reporter
a look that should have blistered him.

The reconstruction programme to be
presented to the voters by the city of
Portland will probably amount to ap
proximately 11.000.000 instead of
13.000.000. as had been contemplated.
At a meeting of the city council yes
terday the special election waa au
thorixed for June t and :;n sppropri
atlon of 113.000 was parsed to bear
the expenses of the voting.
The cut which Is expected in tne
programme comes through the deter
mination of the members of the coun
cil to present a programme of im
provements which are necessities and
not crowd projects upon the ballot
which are not essential, when it is
probable that these measures will not
only meet with defeat, but will also
carry the necessary measures to oe
feat aa well.
City Commissioner Barbur is seri
ously considering delaying the preacn-
atlon of a charter amendment author-
sing the Issuance of bonds to the ex
tent of t2.000.000 for the purpose of
paying for the construction of main
runk sewers and main highways from
the general fund of the city.
City Commissioner Mann will not
present any items In the proposed pro
gramme, as there is sufficient money
available In the water department to
handle the improvements which he
plans without the necessity of asking
or authority to Issue bonds. The
withdrawal of these items prunes an
other liOu.000 from the list.
Mayor Baker also Joined the hands of
he "pruners" in virtually deciding to
rop the proposed sub-police station on
the east side from his list. Several
members of the council stated that
they did not believe such a station
necessary and Mayor Baker intimated
that he would leave the station off the
ballot In the Interest of the measures
which do go on, although his final de
sion In this connection, as well as
Commissioner Barbur's. will be made
nown tomorrow.
As the matter now atands approxi-
malely 1850.000 Is sure to find its way
on the city reconstruction programme.
This Includes JiOO.000 which Mayor
Baker will seek in bonds to finance the
uildlng of comfort stations, community
houses in various psrts of the city, and
other needed improvements in some of
the city parks.
The voters will also be asked to au
thorise a bond Issue for approximately
W0. 000 to be used In remodeling the
tty hall and JiOO.OOO to be used in the
construction of eight new firehouses.
