TRADE SERVICE INDORSED
Chamber of Commerce Favors Com
mercial Attache at Shanghai.
The managing board of the foreign
tradt department of the Chamber of
lomiucrce has indosed a movement
3r the establishment of a branch of-
flee of the commercial attache service
In Shanghai, China.
This action was taken after -the
attention of the Chamber of Com
merce had been called to the need by
firms encased in the China trade.
The American chamber of commerce
of China at Shanghai has advised that
because of the distance between that
important commercial port and Pekin,
with slow 'mail connections, delay is
occasioned in obtaining information
from the commercial attache service
office at Pekin.
The managing board of the foreign
trade department expressed the belief
that in view of the fact that the Brit
ish government maintains the head
office of its commercial attache serv
ice at Shanghai, it would appear that
the interests of American business in
China may be greatly benefited by
having a branch office of the Ameri
can service located there with a com
petent man in charge.

FOE TO TAX IS HELD
FOE TO CITY SAFETY
Mayoralty Candidate Is At
tacked by Council.
STATEMENT IS ISSUED
Xo -Names Mentioned, bnt Herbert
Gordon Is Believed to Be Object
of Charges of Commissioners.
A candidate who comes out against
the 2-mill tax measure is placing his
own political aspirations above the
safety and welfare of the city, said
the city council in a statement issued
yesterday and signed by all the mem
bers. The statement was issued as a
result of the announcement of a can
didate for mayor that the 3-mill tax
as voted a year ago to cover increased
expenses this year should not be
voted again for 1921.
The statement mentions no names,
but is said to be aimed at Herbert
Gordon, who made an anti-3-mill an
nouncement several days ago. The
council, in its statement, says that a
candidate in making such a state
ment shows absolute unfamillarity
with the city's financial requirements.
The statement in full is as follows:
"We, the commissioners of the city
of Portland, who are charged with the
responsibility of maintaining an ade
quate service in the various depart
ments operates by the city, wish to
take exception to a statement issued
by a candidate for mayor in which
he says the 3-mill special tax which
was allowed - by the voters for the
present year to enable the city to
meet the increases in the cost of all
things entering into city service
should not be again voted for next
Protection to City Sought.
"Our basis for making this state
ment is that of protecting the city
against misrepresentation of facts by
persons whom many may believe are
In a position to know whereof they
speak. This candidate in making the
statement he docs demonstrates con
clusively that he is not familiar with
either the facds or the figures. To
make the 3-mill tax measure a poli
tical issue is wrong, because this
issue involves more than personal
aspirations. Jt involves the safety
and welfare of the city and of its
people. , "
"The imperative need of the three
mill tax for next year has been seen
and the measure is indorsed and
backed by every newspaper in Port
land; hy the Portland Clearing House,
representing all the banking institu
tions; by business institutions, and
by the civic clubs of the city and by
every person .who has gone into the
subject either deeply or casually.
There can be absolutely no doubt of
the need of this tax unless Portland
is to be placed next year in a perilous
Tax Maintains Sei-rle.
"The three-mill tax represents
nearly one-third of all the service the
city now has. To eliminate the three
mills means to eliminate therefore
nearly one-third of all present serv
ice. There is absolutely no other way
out and no other way can be devised
by the council regardless of its per
sonnel. The increased cost of city
service now is not due to an increase
of one-third in the sifte of the depart
ments; nor in trie fact to any great
increase in size at all. It is due to
the natural increase in . the price of
everything the city has to buy to use
in giving service. Who will say that
men will or can work now for,what
they did in. 1916? Or who will say
that materia" can be purchased now
for. the same as in 1916? These are
elements beyond the control of the
council or the city or any individual,
regardless of his business or other
ability and any statement to the con
trary is absolute misrepresentation. -v
"The council has the responsibility
of giving Lhe service required by the
people. It naturally is our endeavor
to hold the tax levy to the lowest
possible point because that bespeaks
efficiency and good . management on
our part. It would bespeak the oppo
site for us to sit idly by and allow
to go unchallenged the statements
of a person or persons that this prob
lem is a false alarm. Matters of vital
importance to the welfare of the pub
lic are too often jeopardized in such
Tax Civic Problem.
"The 3-mill tax is a civic problem
and not political and we urge the
public to consider it in that light.
Persons may promise the impossible
for promises are easily made, but
after the vote is cast the stern facts
are still to be faced. The problem
that will confront the city council
if the 3-mill measure fails will 'be
nothing more or less than that of
making an arbitrary and unwarranted
reduction of nearly one-third in an
already inadequate city service.
There will be no other way out.

WAR COSTLY-FOR STATE
Each Person Pays $50. Fljjures
Quoted in Debate.
The people of Oregon are paying
more than J50 per capita for their
share in the war with Germany, ac
cording to figures quoted yesterday
by B. F. Irvine in debate with B. F.
Mulkey at the Portland Press club
luncheon. Mr. Irvine presented this
ig one ot his arguments for trying to
do away with war by means of the1
league of nations.
Mr. Mulkey, in upholding repub
lican contentions, pointed out three
flaws in the league and said In his
opinion Wilson had refused to make
suggested changes because of "his
professional pride in the wording of
"The declaration of independence
was amended until its author, Thomas
Jefferson, was red in the face, but
it was not -hurt." he said.
Mr. Mulkey summed up his objec
tions as resting with articles 1, 10 and
13, fixin-g the boundaries of the earth.
or as he said, "putting a straight
jacket on the world." describing the
way in which a nation could with
draw from the league and being too
difficult to apply to our own prob
lems of territorial aggression.

A sheep skin on your back?
Are you willing to walk down Broadway with a sheep's pelt
thrown around you? Sheep's wool is without value in its raw
state. It must be converted transformed into something wear
able; it must be given style, fit and character. Even after wool is
woven into cloth it is not j'et a suit of clothes. It takes thread,
lining, silk, buttons, trimming and dozens of other things. And, in
addition to that, it takes LABOR human energy. It takes more
than that it takes genius and imagination the ability to create,
