H. PIER TD RETIRE
Finance Commissioner Not
to Seek Re-election.
WORK FOUND PLEASANT
Son Declared Capable, but No An
nouncement Concerning Can
didacy Is Made.
S. C. Pier, commissioner of fi
nance, will not be a candidate for
re-election at the November election.
This announcement was authorized
by Commissioner Pier yesterday.
Private affairs of Mr. Pier have
been neglected of late, he states.
and need greater attention and this
is the reason he is planning to re
tire to private life.
Mr. Pier said that while he knew
his son. Stanhope Pier, was seri
ouslv considering being a candi
date for city commissioner at the
fall election, he had not discussed
the matter with him, and therefore
could make no announcement con
cerning his son.
Son Declared Capable.
On this subject, however. Com
missioner Pier said that his son,
StanhoDe. was a capable man, a
deep thinker and one who, if elected.
as city commissioner wouia oe cer
tain to be a success.
"My work as city commissioner
has been very pleasant," said Mr.
Pier. "I have never enjoyed any
thing quite as much as the work at
the city hall and the associations
that one encounters in the daily
routine of a city commissioner.
"For a time I felt that it would be
necessary for me to give more time
and attention to my private affairs,
because I have been forced to neg
lect them considerably since enter
ing the city service.
Decision Is Reversed.
"But the work with the city has
been bo delightful that finally I
decided that I would not retire at
this time, voluntarily at least, and
that I would be a candidate for
"But during the last month I have
been considering the question seri
ously, and I have found that my
personal affairs are in such shape
that I must devote some time to

decided not to be a candidate for
re-election at the November elec
tion. When I retire on July 1, 1923,
I will divide my time between my
private affairs and - travels with
Mr. Blsrelow Undecided.
City Commissioner Bigelow, whose
term as commissioner expires at
the same time as that of Commis
sioner Pier, is still in doubt as to
whether or not he will be a can
didate. However, it is generally
believed that he will seek re-election
and his announcment to this
effect will not come as a surprise.
Mr. Bigelow has been in the city
service as councilman and commis
sioner, for nine years. He is now

it would be a grave mistake for me
to change my vocation. For the

me in tendering this nomination.

REASONS GIVEX FOR DECLIN
Portland Minister, Asked to Enter
Congressional Race, Says He
Is Bound to Church.
Dr. "William T. McElveen, pastor
of the First Congregational church
of this city, who was proffered the
independent party nomination as a
candidate for representative in
congress for the third Oregon dis
trict at a meeting in Library hall
last Wednesday evening, yesterday
explained to his constituents why
he could not accept their nomina
Duty, he said, obliges him to re
main in his present capacity as
minister and he is bound to fulfill
obligations to which he is pledged
by officers of his church.
In a letter to H. P. Lee, secretary
of the assembly of electors of th
independent party, Dr. McElveen
gave his reasons for declining as
"Words seem to me very clumsy
tnings witn which to express my
heartrelt gratitude to you and your
colleagues who gave of your time
and strength to call a convention
at which was duly voted the nomi
nation of myself as a candidate for
representative in congress for the
third congressional district of Ore
gon. I very keenly appreciate the
friendly words and the loyal pledges
with which your committee tendered
me that nomination.
"But several considerations lead
me respectfully to decline a can
didacy for that high responsibility.
Let me briefly state them:
"First The consensus of opinion
of officers and members of the
First Congregational church with
whom I had opportunity to confer
was that it was my duty to remain
in the pastorate of that church, and
that my participation in a political
campaign at this time would ser

Take Views of Mount Hood
for "Red Enemy."
Moving pictures are the latest
means adopted by the United States
forest service for educating the pub
lic on the 'forest fire hazards and
the best methods and devices against
spread of fire. Two representatives
of the moving picture department of
the department of agriculture have
been working in co-operation with
the officials of the forest service
from this district in filming scenes
for a picture to be entitled "Red
Enemy," which will be shown
throughout the United States by the
Fred W. Perkins heads the party
of cinematographers which has
been working in the Mount Hood
and Lost lake districts photograph
ing scenes for the film. Yesterday
Mr. Perkins, with his companion
photographer, made a flight in " a
government plane around Mount
Hood taking views of the peak.
In the afternoon, the two photog
raphers, John D. Guthrie, examiner
in the department or puDlic rela
tions of the forest service, and C. S.
Chapman of the Western Forestry
and Conservation association set out
together for a climb of Mount Hood
to get further scenes. They par
ticularly want to get a view of the
lookout station atop Mount Hood to
figure in the picture.
'Red Enemy Is to be no ordinary
educational picture, but is to be
wound together with a plot mak
ing an interesting story. It is also
to be full of illustrations of Oregon's
scenic wonders with many various
views of Mount Hood taken from
Lost lake,' from the air, and other
locations. Logging and milling
scenes are to be worKea into tne
story. Later the party will go to
Clatsop county to get pictures of
the logging industry and of timber
scenes. When work on the picture is
concluded the photographers will go
to British Columbia to get pictures
of white pine blister rust.
