POINTS IN LAW DISCUSSED
Attorneys on Both Sides Confine
Themselves Largely to Simi
lar Cases In Other States.
The arguments being presented in
the hearing of the Peoples Amuse
ment company for a permanent in
junction to restrain the unions from
picketing Its theaters will be con
cluded today at noon, according to
order of Circuit Judge Tucker, pre
siding Judge in the case. Attorneys
on both sides think that Judge Tucker
will probably take the case under ad-visement.
The hearing yesterday occupied six
hours of arguments in which both
sides confined their presentation
largely to points of law In similar
cases in other states.
Trouble Not In Portland.
John F. Logan, one of the attorneys
for the moving picture house owners
emphasized the fact that there was
no diBDute between .the employers and
the employes in Portland, but that
the trouble arose in Tacoma.
"The opposition advances the ridic
ulous proposition that the union does
not have to give a reason for strik
ing; that the union does not have to
give a reason for picketing," he said.
Thy can do, then, what no one out
Bid of a labor union would dare do,'
Mr. Logan said that the pickets
chosen were women and that their
purpose was intimidation. He char
acterized the whole action aa illegal,
un-American and wrong.
' U'Rrn Explains Strikes.
W. S. U'Ren, one of the attorneys
for the moving picture union local
stated that this was not a case of a
sympathetic strike. He explained at
length the difference between a sym
pathetic and non-sympathetic strike,
giving it as his belief that a sympa
thetic strike was one in which union
members outside of the trade directly
involved entered the. strike.
"No one claims that there Is any
real strike in any of these theaters,"
said Dan J. Malarkey, one of the at
torneys for the houses. "The only
cause for these theaters In Portland
being boycotted is that over in the
state of Washington some contro
versy has arisen between employes
other than the employes mentioned
in the case and employes who are
not the employes mentioned in this
The court will open tomorrow's
hearing at 9 A. M.
Many persons interested In the case

COOS FISHERMEN QUIT
Gillnetters Say Five Cents Not
Enough to Maintain Equipment.
MARSHFIELD. Or.. July 30. (Spe
cial.) Fishermen in general have dis
continued gillnetting on Coos bay.
owing to the lowering of prices of
fered for Chinook, wnich is the 6ea
sonable catch at this time of the
year. The fishermen were being of
fered 5 cents a pound when they quit.
Those who complained of the price
and took up other work declared that
they could not afford to maintain
their equipment at the price offered
for their catches.
This price is 2 cents lower than
is being paid on the Umpqua river.

WAGE AWARD PLEASES
Some Classes of" Employes Think
Increase Should Have Been More.
ASHLAND, Or., July SO. (Special.)
No radical comment is heard In the
local railroad yards concerning the
wage award recently made the rail
road workers. However there Is i
feeling among the fraternity here
that some classet of employes, notably
switchmen and bridge workers, should
have received greater increases.
One well-known locomotive en
gineer states: 'The switchmen,
brldgeworkers and one or two other
classes of railroad employes never
have received compensation In true
proportion to that received in other
lines of railroad work."

LAND TITLE IS IN DOUBT
Application for Purchase on Larson
Inlet Raises Question.
MARSHFIELD, Or., July 30. (Spe
cial.) An interesting case Is being
Investigated on Larson inlet, wherein
the title to some rich bottom land

Coquille Ranch Brings $35,000.
MARSHFIELD. Or., July 30. (Spe
cial.) Seventy-one acres of land ly
ing adjacent to the city of Coquille
was sold by its owner, Mr. Kistner, to
E. N. Smith, for a consideration of
$35,000. . This ranch is practically all
cleared and is said to be of the richest
bottom land with the exception of
few acres. The price is prpbably the
highest for which any Coos county
farm of like area has- brought. The
ranch is mostly devoted to dairying.
Firms and Individuals to Be Asked
to Make Proposals, Voters Then
to Decide Matter.
Municipal collection of garbage, or
at least a complete change from the
present method of garbage disposal
in this city, seems inevitable. The
city council yesterday authorized a
call for bids for the privilege of either
collecting or disposing of Portland
garbage. With such bids before the
council by September 10 it is hoped
that some proposal may be submitted
to the voters at the November elec
tion. City Commissioner Bigelow has In
vestigated various proposals made by
reduction plants and garbage collec
tion agencies and he said yesterday
he was satisfied that some plans sug
gested would be more satisfactory to
the city, both from a financial and a
health viewpoint, than the system
now in operation.
It is the plan ot Commissioner Big
elow, approved by the council, to ob
tain bids from firms and individuals
prepared to tackle the Portland garb
age problem. .Bids will be called for
through advertisements intended to
reach all persons interested in the
I, on Angeles Plan Favored.
Such bids must be submitted to the
council by September 10, after which
time the council will make a careful
investigation of. the various proposals
and select the most suitable for sub
mission to the voters.
The Los Angeles plan Is looked
upon, with considerable favor. There
contract is in effect with a reduc
tion company which pays the city
for the garbage delivered to the plant.
This, it is said, not only pays all the
cost of garbage collection but yields
a neat profit for the city.
Under the present system of gar
bage collection in Portland It is esti
mated that not more than one-third of
all the garbage is collected and de
stroyed at the incinerator. The col
lection is in the hands of private col
lectors who charge a monthly fee
for their service.
Charge Held Disadvantage.
This charge results in many people
in the city refusing to utilize the pres
ent system. Garbage disposal by In
dividuals, in many cases, is said to
be a menace to public health.
At least a dozen firms operating
throughout the United States are ex
pected to bid for the privilege of col
lecting garbage in Portland or paying
for the garbage the city will collect
in the event the voters indorse the
