I HI Sit
Barbur and Bigelow in Favor
of Scheme; Mayor, Pier Not.
Executive Fears Private Firms Could
Hot Compete; Profit of 10
. Cents a Yard Made.
Should the city of Portland enter the
paving business unable to handle all
paving required In the city, or should
it operate doing -whatever Is possible at
a low cost, with other necessary "work
let to private contractors at much
higher prices?
.This question developed as the princi
pal feature of an Informal meeting of
the city council yesterday, when City
Commissioner Barbur presented his
idea of enlarging the municipal paving
repair plant at an approximate cost of
J25.000. This plant, he explained, would
have a capacity of about 100,000 square
yards of pavement per year.
Both Mayor Baker and City Com
missioner Pier advocated either going
into the business prepared to handle the
paving needs of the city or refraining
from making a half-hearted entry in
the field. This policy, both officials
explained, was taken on the show'ing
that had been made by the municipal
paving repair plant of costs far below
that of private contractors, and on the
ground that with office rent, dock
rental and other costs eliminated by
the city, competition by private corpo
rations would be impossible.
Bigelow Says "Walt."
"What do you plan to do," asked
Mayor Baker, "lay pavements for some
people at low prices and let contracts
for work in other parts of the city at
much higher costs?"
"Not necessarily," answered Commis
sioner Bigelow, who proved to be an
enthusiastic supporter of Commissioner
Barbur's plan, "if they want the work
bad enough, let them pay the higher
prices; otherwise let them wait."
"Such a plan," saia Commissioner
I'ier, "is manifestly unfair, for if one
person can have pavement at low costs,
ueitainly other property owners have
the same right."
The meeting opened with the presen
tation of figures on work accomplished
by the paving plant during the last
year and a half. These figures, ex
plained Commissioner Barbur, were
compiled from actual costs on various
Johs and show an estimated saving of
S42.S09.10 between the cost of the work
by the city plant and the prices of
fered by private contractors or esti
mates of the average prices bid by pri
vate contractors.
Over Hnlf Saved.
ilr. Barbur said that Terwilliger
"boulevard was paved by the city at a
total cost of J13.972.G1 whereas the
same Job by private contract would
have brought the price to $32,123.52.
Thus he said there was a saving on
this work of $18,150.91. Another job
used as an example by Ir. Barbur to
sliov the saving capacity of the munic
ipal plant was the hardsurfacing of
Kaft "-seventeenth street by the county.
A I'art of this work was done by the
city at 77 cents per square yaod, and
the other portion completed by private
contract at a cost of $1.53 per square
Kstimates for an enlarged plant as
advocated by Commissioner Barbur
show a total cost of 1'3,9j2 which in
cludes the erection of a dock, new
bunkers, paving plant building, new
equipment, moving of the present plant
to the proposed new dock, and railroad
Through negotiations carried on by
Commissioner Barbur and the public
dock commission, the city has been
granted permission to utilize the Jef
ferson street levee for the paving plant
sile without rental costs.
in addition to the establishment of
a new paving plant at the foot of Jef
rsun street. Air. Barbur contemplates
obtaining possession of property owned
by Giebisch & Joplin, near the O.-W.
H. & N. company's track on Sullivan's
gulch, from which paving materials,
such as gravel and sand, can be ob
tained. Property Offered Cheap.
This property has been offered to the
city for $500 and the payment of as
sessments totaling $1093. To properly
equip this property to take out the
jnuterials would require an expenditure
pf $000, which brings the proposed
expenditure planned by Mr. Barbur for
establishment of a new paving plant to
Under such an arrangement Mr. Bar
bur explained that the capacity of the
present paving plant, which stands on
ground leased at a rental of $1200 a
year, would be increased 50 per cent,
and that between 1300 and 1400 square
yai'tia of pavement could be turned out
each day.
Commissioner Pier first asked what
margin o profit the plant operated on,
and learned that 10 cents per. square
yard was the average profit of the
city on each job. This margin of profit,
lie maintained, was not sufficient to
jncet exigencies which are bound to
develop in any business. The past
record of the pa.ving plant was re
ferred to by Mr. Barbur to Justify his
Mayor tara for Competitors.
Mayor Baker then began laying a
barrage of questions to establish the
fact that private contractors could not
possibly compete with the city on an
even basis. Mr. Barbur settled any
doubt along this line by saying tiiat
with free office rent, ability to use the
leaving crew on other work the year
around, and the elimination of uncer
tainty over contracts, which faces the
private contractor, that no living per
son on earth could afford to lay pave
ment as cheaply as a municipality
equipped with a paving plant such as is
proposed for Portland.
Then came a long round of argument
ever the wisdom of breaking into the
paving business in competition with
private industry, with the city not fully
equipped to handle all the paving busi
ness. Commissioner Barbur maintained
Steadily throughout the argument that
the city should "creep before walking."
and that the business should be entered
step by step.
In this view, he was supported by
Commissioner Bigelow, with Mayor
Baker and Commissioner Pier plainly
satisfied that such a policy would be
unfair to many of the property owners
who would desire work done by the city
. SI nek Work In Sicfct.
Commissioner Barbur told the council
that a plant large enough to handle
all the paving business in the city
would be impossible without a city
election to authorize a bond issue. The
council calendar it is understood will
Carry specifications for 40,000 yards of
pavement next week, and the week
following $0,000 yards is expected on
the calendar for authorization. The
proposed new plant will have a yearly
capacity of 100,000 yards, which would
be but a small part of the city paving
The estimates presented by Mr. Ear
bur for the new plant at the foot of
Jefferson street include $5350 for the
material and erection of a new dock.
$8200 for bunkers with a capacity of
1050 cubic yards, $2350 for a paving
plant bulldlngr $5000 for new equip
ment. $4000 for moving of the old plant
to new location and $1052 for trackage.
The last item he said might not be
expended, but other items were neces
sary. Following the presentation of the
estimates. Commissioner Barbur said
that he would present his proposal to
the city council formally after mem
bers of the council had made a study
of his figures.
Reports Say That Columbia Waters
Are Strewn With Dead Baby
ASTORIA, Or., July 25. (Special.)
This morning the purse seining craft
Chinook brought in 250 young Chinook
salmon from 16 to 18 inches in length
that tipped the scales at 720 pounds,
an average of less than three pounds
each. The fish were confiscated by
Deputy Warden Larson, who placed
them in cold storage pending receipt
from the department of instructions as
to what charges shall be filed.
Captain Antone Mardich, master of
the craft, said he released fully 2000
young fish from his seine before pick
ing it up. Reports received - today by
Deputy Larson state that the water
outside the mouth of, the river is strewn
with thousands of dead baby salmon
which have apparently been killed and
thrown away. He is making a strong
effort to have the destruction of these
immature salmon stopped, and for that
purpose is urging the packers not to
accept delivery of any chinooks weigh
ing under ten pounds each.
Finance Commissioner to Meet De
mand for More Pay.
TACOMA, Wash., July 25. (Special.)
Finance Commissioner F. Shoemaker
has completed a table of salary com
parisons for city employes which indi
cates what progress the city has made
in the programme of salary boosting" in
the last two years.
According- to the figures, Mr. Shoe
maker says the city paid in the first
six months of 1919 $250,000 more in
salaries to city employes than in the
first six months of 1917, an increase of
73.7 per cent. At this rate the salaries
for the year will be a round half mil
lion more than two years ago
The commissioner has gathered the
data in view of the fact that city em
ployes are getting- ready td make an
other strong demand for more pay
when the new budget is created next
$9000 Confiscated Stock Spilled by
Montesano Official.
MOSTESAXO, Wash., July 25. (Spe
cial.) Sheriff Jeff Bartell destroyed
more than $9000 worth of confiscated
liquor at the courthouse Wednesday
afternoon. During the process of the
smashing, a bottle exploded, cutting the
officer's hand severely, though not se
riously. Figuring that if whisky is
good to kill the effects of snake bites
and other poisons, it should also be a
remedy to prevent blood infection from
broken glass, the sheriff promptly
called for a bottle of the very best
bonded liquor in the stock, broke the
neck and sprinkled the contents over
his hand.
There was every kind of liquor imag
inable in the $!000 pile, from German
lager beer to champagne of rare vint
age as well as pure alcohol.
Blaze on Colville Indian Reservation
Menaces Range.
YAKIMA, Wash., July 25. (Special.)
H. Stanley Coffin of this city, yester
day received a message from L. Wor
den, who is caring- for 10,000 head of
sheep on the Colville Indian reserva
tion for himself and the Coffin in
terests, stating- that four large forest
fires threaten his flocks and range. He
asked authority to employ men to fight
the blazes.
Mr. Wordcn will wait the outcome of
weather bureau forecasts of rain, but
if the situation does not improve will
be obliged to employ a force of fire
fighters, as the Indian service has no
funds to use for the purpose and stock
men must protect their own range on
Indian lands.
City and County Disagree Over
Route and Costs.
ABERDEEN", Wash.. July 25. (Spe
ciol.) Continuing disagreement be
tween members of the citycouncil and
the county commissioners as to the
best route for the Olympic highway
into the city led to the council decision
last night to hire an outside expert
to look over the proposed routes and
advise as to which one would be best.
The proposal to bond the city for
the expense of the new road is op
posed by a number of property owners.
E. B. Benn, one of the large owners,
stated today that his opposition would
be persistent and active to any bond
issue. He and others favor leaving: the
county to build the road.

1919s Now Worth 50 Cents,
Say Local Dealers.
Field Conditions Are Reported Gen
erally Satisfactory 4 0,00 0 to
50,000 Bales Expected.
The hop market continues a strong af
fair, but whether prices will so above the
present level Is problematical, according to
local dealers. Buy in, so far as the 1918
crop is concerned. Is practically at an end.
only a few small lots here and there re
maining unsold. For such holdings prices
around 05 cents are said to be readily ob
tainable, but little or no trade in last year's
crop Is reported.
New crop contracts are said to be worth
50 cents, and the market at that figure is
declared firm. The bnlk of the 1919 growth
was contracted earlier In the season, much
of it at prices running from 15 to 30 cents,
which, in view of the prices now obtainable
will mean considerable losses to some of
the Oregon growers. However, there were
a good many term contracts made early in
the season, for three years, and under these
the producers will fare somewhat better.
Crop conditions in this state are report
ed to be satisfactory on the whole, fully up
to the average showing at this stage of the
season, and It is believed now that the out
put for Oregon this year will be between
40,000 and 60,000 bales. Soma complaints
have reached the city of damage done by
the red spider and the growers In some sec
tions have resorted to spraying to combat
the pest, but generally the crop is said to
be doing well. Picking, as usual, will be
gin about the first of September.

Mutton Market Easier. -
There was a further Jump or 23 cents on
horrs In th. local livestock market yesterday,
putting prime-pork material up to the 4-3
level, th. hla-nest price ever paid In the
Portland market. This price was paid for
a bunch of 100 xtm-quallty hoes averts
Ins 16. pounds tn weight. As for some time
past, hoes were the strong feature of the
market, and with current receipts moderate
and the demand Insistent, dealers say it is
entirely possible for prices to go to a still
higher level. Other hog sales at tlia yards
esterdar were at C'Z.&u to 4Ji.TS.
Sheep were the alow feature, buyers show
ing a disposition to hold off at the prices
now quoted. There were several Important
sales In the mutton division, lambs for the
most part, and the prices paid showed an
easing tendency.
In the cattle market thero was practically
nothing doing and values underwent no ma
terial change. The. ton, was Mid to be
teady to strong generally, with the demand
mainly for quality stock.
Receipts for th day were 151 Bogs and
470 sheep.
