men and should not be classed with
common laborers and If any county
commissioner doubts this statement
"let him try tending; the gates for Just
one day" say the gatemen In a peti
tion presented to the commissioners
yesterday asking; an Increase In sal
ary from $100 a month to J120.
The petitioners, headed by Sanfleld
Macdonald. refer the commissioners
to published statistics on the In
creased cost of living; and point out
that their wages come under the class
of wages paid common laborers.
whereas they should be paid "because
of their heavy responsibilities" as
skilled workmen. The Job of gate
man is not without frequent personal
danger as well as responsibility for
fir and accidents, they declare, re
ferrlng to two tenders killed on the
bridges In 1518. The petition was
taken under advisement.

Consideration of the Plumb plan of
railway control and operation, pre
sented before members of the Port
land Chamber of Commerce at the
members' forum, nearly precipitated
a riot in that staid bod yesterday
noon, when at the close of the address
a member arose and moved that It be
the sense of the gathering that the
Plumb plan and any other "social
istic" plans be condemned utterly.
Amid considerable excitement it was
voted to lay the matter upon the
table for consideration and to vote at
some future date.
Clarence C Dill, former representa
tive of Spokane, now touring the
country under the auspices of the
Plumb plan league of Washington
had concluded his address upon the
Plumb plan, and about half of those
present had risen to their feet pre
paratory to adjournment, when C. W
Hodson raised his voice above the
scraping of chairs to introduce a reso
lution couched In the following
Cewdemaattom Is Asked.
Resolved. That this assemblage
recommend to the board of directors
of the Portland Chamber of Commerce
that the board place the chamber on
record as condemning the Plumb plan
or any other plan of railway opera
tion based upon socialistic theories.
The voicing of the motion brought
sounds of violent approval and dis
approval from all corners of the room.
Those who were half wsy out of the
room hesitated to watch the out
come. In the general confusion A. F. Fle
gel gained the floor and expressed
himself as unalterably opposed to
taking a vote at that time.
"To vote at this time." he said,
"would be an insult to the speaker,
and it would be an insult to this body
for us to vote now when we have nof
had an opportunity to consider the
problem thoughtfully. If we wish to
take a vote on the matter we should
do so after we have had an oppor
tunity of hearing both sides and
studying the matter in our own

A motion was introduced amending

"The meeting stands adjourned
roared John Dougal. who was presid
ing, and he brought hM gavel down
on the table with a thud that made
the dishes rattle.
Mr. Dill, who was elected on the
democratic ticket from the Fifth dis
trict of Washington, arrived in Port
land yesterday from Spokane. He
was met at the station by an enter
talnment committee composed of mem
bers of the Portland railway council
Frank Hoffman chairman. After the
luncheon Mr. Dill was taken for a
tour of the highway. The main fea
ture of his visit here wava the public
address given last night at the mu
nicipal auditorium.
Mr. Dill in his address to the league
explained the provisions of the Plumb
plan, and answered all questions pre
sen ted to him.

Clifton E. Phillips and Harrison N.
PhlMlps, brothers, who separated
when the latter lost a leg at Chateau

business together, Clifton came here

Clifton has been out of the service
less than two months.
Lucky enough to get Into the same
company, the brothers went through
many experiences together.
The two boys, who are sons of Mrs.
St. L. Phillips, postmistress at Gooch,
enlisted early in the war in company
A of the 4th engineers. They went
to France in April. 1911, and within a
week were up behind the front lines.
Side by side they went into their first
big offensive on July IS In the second
battle of the Marne. Working with
the infantry and part of the time as
infantry, their company had reached
third-line German trench when
piece of shrapnel struck Harrison
in the left leg.
Clifton Phillips stopped with his
wounded brother, and he and a med
ical sergeant bandaged the injured
limb, when another shell exploded
close beside them. By a peculiar
freak, the flying shrapnel missed the
two kneeling over the man they were
bandaging, except that it knocked off
the sergeant's canteen and struck the
soldier already wounded. To make
the circumstance more remarkable,
the piece of shell which hit the
wounded man struck the leg already
Injured. It inflicted a terrible wound
and amputation of the limb was nec
essary the next day.

settling the difficulties which the
country is facing.
"As a matter of fact there is noth

ends by law and to pay the present

effect, there need be no danger of
men trying to force the plan by bol
ahevtstic methods.
-The war was fought to overthrow
autocracy and to establish dtmocr.rv
