Husband Complains Living
Costs More This Time.
Portland Fireman Says Spouse
Would Not Go Out With Him,
Swore When He Took Another.
"I tried to make up with him and
live happily, but it can't be done,
judge," complained Mrs. Ella James
in her divorce suit before Presiding
Judsc Gatens yesterday. Her first at
tempt to live peaceably with C. J. W.
James began 30 years ago and lasted
for 25 years, -she said. She was di
vorced about five years ago, but re
married April 2. 1919.
After his second marriage to the
same wife the husband bitterly com
plained because it cost so much more
to live than it had when he had been
married to her before, she said. He
became disgusted with her because
she was often sick, and abused her.
"I took a girl friend of wife's cousin
to a show and when my wife saw
me she called me vile names," ex
plained W. A. Nessler in his divorce
action against Verda Nessler. "She
refused to go out with me herself."
The plaintiff, who is a Portland fire
man, received his decree.
Several days after the marriage of
Kverett T. Miller last March his wife,
Jeanette, handed him his ring and
told him he was "nothing but a little
cur" and that she would have nothing
more to do with him, he testified In
his divorce suit before Presiding
Judge Gatens yesterday.
"And what effect did this treatment
have upon you?" inquired his attor
ney. "A very bad effect; I didn't like it
at all," responded Miller, seriously.
"I found she had another husband
at. Marshfield, so I left her," explained
Cash R. Lane, who askedthat his
tnarriage to Margaret M. Lane be an
nulled. It was.
"He said I was too good for him,
but he couldn't help leaving me for a

Officials Explain Woman Holds
Two Paid and One Non-Lucrative
Position Under State.
SALEM, Or., Oct. 22. (Special.)
Complaint filed with Secretary of State
Olcott by Mrs. G. 1. Williams of Port
land in which it is charged that Mrs.
Millie Trumbull Is holding the po
sition of secretary of the child wel
fare commission. In addition to serv
ing as secretary to the board of In
spectors of child labor and assistant
secretary of the industrial welfare
commission, was today referred to
Attorney-General Brown with request
for a written opinion as to Mrs. Trum
bull's legal status.
When complaint was first made a
few days ago that Mrs. Trumbull was
holding two lucrative offices in con
nection with serving as secretary of
the board of inspectors of child labor
at a salary of 125 a month, and as
sistant secretary of the industrial
welfare commission at a salary of $30
a month. Secretary of State Olcott
replied to Mrs. Williams that the for
mer employments did not constitute
two lucrative offices under the legal
interpretation of the term. Attorney
General Brown, it is said, concurred
in this statement.
It is shown by the records here, ac
cording to the assistant secretary of
state, that while the legislature of
1919 provided for a secretary to serve
as executive officer of the child wel
fare commission at a salarv not to
exceed J2000 a year, Mrs. Trumbull
is acting in that capacity without
Investigation has also brought out
the fact that Mrs. Trumbull is serv
ing in her two positions as a result
of a consolidation, but the combined
salaries of the two employments are
approximately the same amount as
received in the one position prior to
the consolidation.
In connection with Mrs. Williams'
complaint it is also pointed out that
neither of the positions held by Mrs.
Trumbull can be termed "lucrative"
offices for the reason -that under ths
Oregon laws "every person elected or
appointed to any office under the con
stitution shall, before entering on the
duties thereof, take an oath or af
firmation to support the constitution

of the United States and of the state
and also an oath of office."
None of these obligations are in
cumbent upn Mrs. Trumbull, who, in
the language of the officials, holds
two paid jobs and one non-lucrative
job, rather than two lucrative offices.
S. Coe of Canby Has Excellent
Return From Small Farm.
Berries Still Fresh.
OREGON CITY, Or., Oct. 22. (Spe
cial.) That Clackamas county has a
bountiful crop of apples the largest
known in its history can be proved
by visiting the orchard of R. S. Coe
of Canby, where the harvesting is
now in progress.
Mr. Coe, compelled to seek the out-of-door
life on account of his health,
decided to come to Oregon and settled
at Canby about 26 years ago. He
set to work immediately to make
necessary improvements to the land
and to plant fruit trees. Determined
to. try his luck as an orchardist, he
selected the best varieties of apples.
It is a sight worth seeing to visit
this tenacre farm, where apples of
all sizes, flavor and color are being
picked and packed.. Many have come
to the farm from Portland as well as
other sections to purchase the apples.
Mr. Coe believes he will have at least
2000 boxes when all are harvested.
There is one tree alone, of the Bald
win variety, heavily laden with fruit,
and it is estimated the crop from this
tree will be over 30 boxes.
Besides the apples ripening on the
place. Mr. and Mrs. Coe are still en
joying strawberries and raspberries
from their garden.
Although the farm of Mr. and Mrs
Coe contains but 10 acres, most of
which is planted to fruit trees, they
have set aside a spot for gardening,
having two acres in corn, most of
which has been harvested early in the
season, and from half an acre of land
they secured eight and one-half tons
of hay this fall.

Commerce yesterday to succeed Henry
L. Corbett. The resignation of Mr.
Corbett was tendered to the board un

business that will necessitate his ab

reason for Mr. Corbett's resignation.
The election of Mr. Van Duzen. here
tofore vice-president and a diligent
worker in activities of the chamber,
was unanimous. The board had de

the directors could be held, four be
ing away from the city last week on
the southern Oregon excursion.
Henry Brooks Van Duzer is a na

years of age. He came to Oregon in
the late '90s and has been Identified
with the lumber trade and manufac
turing most of the time When
the war came Mr. Van Duzer was
appointed a member of the Douglas
fir committee and later became a
director. In the initial stages of fed
eral direction of lumber and timber
Industries the mills were unable to
meet requirements, but through the
executive ability of Mr. Van Duzer
facilities were co-ordinated. and
from that time until the end of the
conflict the northwestern mills met
every demand. He has been active in
all public movements.
Mr. Corbett's Work Cited.
Mr. Corbett retires from the presi
dency after, two and one-half years
as executive head, serving through a
period fraught with exceptional de
mands upon officials. He first be
came active in the organization as a
member of the Oregon development
bureau and succeeded C. C. Chapman
as representative of that bureau on
the board of directors. -In 1915 he
was elected vice-president and in
April, 1917, succeeded to the presi
dency. Under his administration the
membership has Increased from 2100
to 3000 and at present is steadily
During the period of the war Mr.
Corbett gave practically all of his
time to public affairs connected with
the business of the chamber, and as
a private in the Multnomah Guard did
sertinel duty at the waterfront indus
trial plants with his comrades. In
submitting his resignation to the
board of directors Mr. Corbett said:
"In April, 1917, I had the honor
of being elected to the presidency of
the Portland Chamber of Commerce.
I have held this position continuously
since that date and have given to the
organization the fullest measure of
whatever ability I may possess and
for two years and a half have given
up lo per cent of my time to the work
of the organization.
Business Requires Time.
"In justice to myself and my own
business affairs I cannot longer con
tinue to give to the chamber the time
which I believe it deserves. I feel,
furthermore, that I cannot consent
to give less time to the chamber's
work than I have in the past and
still continue to hold office as presi
dent of the organization.
"I am leaving tonight for the east
to be gone for a considerable period
of time. On my return my private
business will necessitate frequent ab
sences from the city, which will put
me out of touch with the work of our
organization. In Justice to the cham
ber I cannot continue to remain as
president while unable to actively
direct its affairs, and in justice to
myself, I cannot continue to hold of
fice as a figurehead.
"With the greatest regrets that
other duties make it imperatively
necessary, I therefore respectfully
submit my resignation as president
of the Portland Chamber of Com
merce, to take effect at your earliest
possible convenience. In doing so I
wish to express to pie board of di
rectors the very great, pleasure that
I have had in being actively asso
ciated with them and to express fur
ther my thanks and appreciation for
the active and unselfish co-operation
which I have always received from

Much Legislation Tends
Cut Down Revenues.
Tax Limit Is- Reached and Commis
sioner Says Election Is
Only Solution."
The general run of legislation tend
ing to decrease the revenue of the
city and increasing the cost of the
operation is largely the reason for
the present financial plight of the
city of Portland, according to City
Commissioner Barbur, who for many
year prior to being elected commis
sioner served as city auditor. In the
former position Mr. Barbur had op
portunity of keeping a careful check
on the city's income and expenses.
"The tendency of recent legislation
enacted by the voters has been mate
rially to reduce the . city's revenue
from sources other than taxation and
to increase the expenses of conduct
ing the city," said Commissioner Bar
bur. ' "This is responsible to a large
degree for the present financial stress
of the city. The mounting cost of
everything and the decreased revene
has brought the city up to a point
where revenue received does not
equal the expense of service. It is
to relieve this situation that the spe
cial election has been called for No
vember 12."-
. Liquor Loss $400,000.
To explain just what the city has
lost. Commissioner Barbur cites the
fact that prohibition haa eliminated
$400,000 a year revenue, which was
paid into the city treasury by saloons
and kindred interests. The voters,
he explains, recently adopted R meas
ure eliminating the usual charge- of
5 per cent for engineering, advertis
ing, etc., on street improvements
This 5 per cent netted the city from
$125,000 to $296,000 a year, which rev
enue. Commissioner Barbur said, is
now lost to the city. In addition to
this loss, the amount . necessary to
care for this work has- had to be
raised through taxation, thus adding
materially to the upward trend of the
tax levy which now has reached the
limit allowed by law.
This 5 per cent charge, which for
merly was allowed in the assessment
against improvements, presents even
a more serious problem for next year
than in the present year, as the city
faces the largest improvement pro
gramme that has been undertaken
since 1910.
Tax Limit Too Small.
The aggregate loss of revenue in
recent years to the city amounts to
about $800,000 a year, according to
Commissioner Barbur, due in a large
part, he said, to laws enacted by the
people. The money which previously
was used to run the city had to be
made up by taxation, and, with vastly
increased cost of everything, the limit
of taxation was reachtd more than
a year ago and now is so small that
the city cannot continue to operate on
what it receives.
Commissioner Barbur also points
out that in addition to the elimination
of revenue the voters have adopted
numerous measures jvhich have added
to the expense of running the city.
By voting for additional parks the
co6t of park operation and main
tenance has been increased by a very
large amount and much more Is to
come next year with the recent adop
tion of a bond issue for l ire parks
and playgrounds.
"I am not arguing against the parks
and playgrounds, because- it is my
firm belief that parks are necessary
for old and young, and that play
grounds are a wonderful asset for the
growing children. Playgrounds not
alone furnish play for the youngsters
but in addition they furnish valuable
educational features. But we have
the parks and playgrounds and have
voted . for additional facilities. As
yet we have not any too many far a
city- the size of Portland, but we are
obligated to maintain those which
now are in operation and those which
will be acquired through the pas
sage of the recent bond measure."
Fire Bureau Costa More.
The adoption by the voters of the
two-platoon system in the fire bureau
has increased the cost of labor, Mr.
Barbur maintains. According to fig
ures which he quotes, the adoption of
this measure has added more than
$26,000 a rear to the cost of labor In
the fire bureau. Pension systems
voted by the people for the fire and
police bureaus have involved outlays
from the city treasury which were not
called for in former years, when the
revenue was far greater Can at the
present time.
"During recent years, as these
sources of revenue have been elim
inated and the expense has been in
creased the city has made up the dif
ference by increasing the levy. The
point has now been reached where
the limit of tax levy that may be im
posed has been reached and the
amount allowed is far too small to
permit the city to continue to give
the service it has been giving," con-
:luded Mr. Barbur.

Improvement of Citizenship by Ed

Sam A. Kozer, assistant secretarj
of state, who was in Portland yes

appropriation made for the aid of re

Kozer, and from indications the num
ber will be much greater before the

Mr. Kozer said that the number

by the thousands in warm weather.
A serious epidemic spreading throughout your
entire organization could easily 6 tart from a
cuspidor, toilet-room, or some dark corner not
properly disinfected.
Take precautions against this constant, in
visible menace now, and continue to do so all
through the summer.
Prevent a big sick-list. Protect yourself and
your associates from serious contagious illness.
Lysol Disinfectant at the moment of applica
tion kills all germ life, or prevents its creation.

regularly in cuspidors, toilet -rooms, dark cor
ners, on floors, rugs, and all surfaces.
In the home: Hare a solution of Lysol Disin
fectant sprinkled regularly in sinks, drains,
toilets, garbage cans, and wherever flies gather.

fectant. Remember, there is but one genuine Lysol Dis
infectant made, bottled, signed, and sealed

Exposition Pavilion Inspected by
Men About to Make Drive to
Place $100,000 in Stock.
An incident of happy portent yes
terday gladdened the hearts of the
75 crack salesmen from the allied
civic clubs who will take the field
next Tuesday for an intensive three
day drive through which they expect
to place $100,000 worth of stock to
finance the completion of the Pacific
International Livestock exposition's
new pavilion at North Portland.
The salesforces mobilised by Cam
plagrn Manager Milton R. Klepper and
Financial Director John L. Etheridge
had completed an excursion through
all departments of the big 7 '4 -acre
pavilion and emerged from the front
entrance of the building about 1:30
P. M., just as the sunshine burst
through the clouds and a brilliant
rainbow appeared through the misty
rain. The beautiful bow hung over
the big pavilion, where 200 workmen
and a noisy donkey engine were
clamorously at work speeding up the
completion of the structure. A shout
went up from Klepper and his enthu
siastic army of salesmen as the rain
bow was discovered and announced
by O. M. Plummer. general manager
of the Pacific International.
"Look, fellows." shouted Plummer,
'that's a symbol for our drive. You
will note that the end of the rainbow
dips right down Into Portland's busi
ness district, and there's where the
big pot of gold is. Now all we have
got to do is to go out and get it."
The s-mbol was accepted in a
happy spirit as the clubmen piled into
their automobiles and started back
for the city. All were greatly en
thusiastic over the fine appearance of
the building, now about 85 per cent
completed. They unanimously ex
pressed confidence In the success of
the drive to enlist all of the city's
business and professional men as
partners in the Pacific International
and its extensive educational and de
velopmental plans.

Revitalize your blood and put your
system in condition to resist
the hardships of winter.
It is the strong-bodied men and
women who are vigorous and healthy
in winter, and who are not incon
venienced by the cold, wet days.
Wet feet don't bother them, sudden
changes cause no inconvenience, and
even when a cold is "caught," be
cause of contact, in a close, stuffy
room with some one already in
fected, the trouble seldom lasts over
a day or two. This highly desired
state of health is brought about by
having rich, pure blood, uncontam
inated by Impurities of any kind.
You may possibly think your blood
is all right you are not troubled by
outward signs. Yet you have felt
tired and languid, you have lost some
sleep or had some minor ailments at
times, but you regard yourself as in
"fairly good condition physically."
This may be true, but you should
take nothing for granted, you should
not "guess" that you are all right.
The thing to do is to make yourself
right by taking a good blood tonic
and lnvigorator, such as S. S. S. It
is the best known blood tonic on the
