Power to Take Over Streets
Wot Asked by Commission.
MATTER LEFT TO VOTERS
Conference Between Chamber ot
Commerce Committee and
Members la Fruitless.
Members of the city council yester
day declined to fro on record as favor
Ins house bill No. 310, Introduced by
Representative Kubli. which would
frrant them th power to vacate
streets within 1000 feet of the harbor
line, provided that the vacation be ap
proved by the port commission.
The bill if passed, would practically
abrogate the Ziegler amendment to
the Portland city charter, which pro
h!bits the council from vacating
treets within 1000 feet of the waler
kfronL The Kubli bill is so worded as
to Include In its provisions any city
or town within or forming a part of
any port district.
The bill came up for discussion at
an informal conference between the
chamber of commerce legislative
committee and four members of the
ity council, held In the mayor's of
fice. Mayor Baker was not present
at the conference.
The bill was designed to facilitate
the work of establishing larfre freight
and passenger railroad terminal bases
In Portland, and would give the coun
cil the power to authorize the con
struction and use of facilities for ter
minal trackage, structures and in
strumentalities of commerce and
transportation.
The attitude of the city commis
sioners, as expressed by Commis
J edoner Biselow, seemed to be that in-
asmuch as the voters of the city had
withdrawn this power from the coun
cil, it rested upon the voters to re
etore It, should they so desire.
It was suggested by Blgelow that
the matter be submitted to the voters
at the special election for the bonus
act. set for June. Failing that, he
proposed that the railroad authorities
el.oulil consult with the city council
and line up a definite project, which
should be submitted to the voters for
consideration.
J. B. Zieglcr, father of the Ziegler
amendment, appeared before the
council following the introduction of
the Kubli bill, and at that time the
commissioners passed a resolution
stating that they did not sponsor the
measure, and that they had not asked
for the power vested in them by the
b:Il.
Robert Strong, William McMasters.
J. Smith and K. C Johnson appeared
for the chamber of commerce legis
lative committee, and Arthur Spencer
represented the Northern Pacific Ter
minal company.
The representative from the cham
ber of commerce did not request that
the council support the bill, and the
conference was termed a3 being mere
ly "an exchance of ideas."

rivalry Is keen.
The two steamships straightened
out on the course down the river amid
the din of steam whistles and the
cheers of thousands of spectators. An
airplane circled overhead, dropping
flowers.
Both steamers will call at Havana,
being due there Friday. From there
they will proceed to the Panama
canal.
Both have well-filled cabins and
some cargo for Pacific ports. Despite
two extra stops scheduled passengers
on the Golden State expressed con
fidence that they would be the first
to reach San Francisco.
Among these passengers were a
score of Californlans who came east
by rail to make the first trip on one
of these big liners.

TACOMA, Wash., Feb. 15. (Special.)
About 13O0 tons of general freight went
out today on th Matron line steamer West
Nilus tor ports of the Hawaiian islands.
Tbe West Nilus arrived here Sunday and
began yesterday morning to load with five
gangs of longshoremen. The larger part
of the freight of the vessel was flour.
although there was considerable furniture.
According to shipping men, the new
rate of 110 the 10OO feet of lumber to
the orient meant a loss of around 10 per
cent for the steamship operators. No
movement was being made to get busi
ness, it was said, at this rate. While this
rate comes within $1 of being the low rate
of 1913, it was pointed out that Income
tax on both ends and other taxes eat up
the difference between the present rats
and the 1913 rate. Then there was
cost of around $1,10 for handling the
lumber, which cut into the low rate of
eight years ago.
The San Diego ana Wahksena. loading
lumber here for San Pedro, were due to
