The total of the budget, as al

year, was $3,649,134 and to this was

city levied 10.35 mils last year. The

be folly for them to eit for days
and attempt to extract ruthlessly or
otherwise more than $1,000,000, and
decided that the department heads
could bring the budget down to the
amounts allowed for the last year.
But in reaching this decision
members of the council were agreed
that some special attention would
be necessary to certain departments.

$20,000 increase in street lighting, as
it would take this much to pay for

CANADIAN LOBBY VICTOR
Northwest Delegation Is Defeated
Sharply by Iowering of Rate-
THE OR.EGONTAN NEWS BUREAU,
Washington, D. C, Sept. 11. Failure
of the conferees on the tariff bill to
put a duty on shingles, as asked by
the Pacific northwest states, was a
victory for the most successful leg
islative organization that has oper
ated in Washington for many years
the Canadian lumber lobby.
The lobby was managed and fi
nanced by representatives of the
Shevlin lumber interests in Minnea
polis, which held something like
600,000 acres of timber in British
Columbia. The original fight was
to defeat a tariff oh lumber, and
this was comparatively easy because
northwest lumbermen were inter
ested chiefly in writing into the
tariff bill the provision which would
make a tariff apply on this side
when Canada levies such a duty on
the other side.
The opponents or the tariff on
lumber and shingles worked through
the Minnesota delegation, the last
stand in opposition to the shingles
tariff being made by Senators Nel
son and Kellogg.
The magnesite rate, as finally
adopted, is a sharp defeat for the
Pacific northwest delegation who
fought to have the house rate of
$15 a ton on the dead burned min
eral and $10 on crude magnesite
adopted. The rate as reported out
is $11.25 a ton on dead burned mag
nesite and $6.25 a ton on crude

A day at Pantages is a splendid
one. Every act is notably good,

and volume and power, it lives in

Whether she is French, German or
xtussian tne audience could not de
cide, for she displays the training
and technique of foreign schools of
music. Her range is phenomenal
ana ner singing fairly electrifies the
audience. In one instance Miss
Claire sings Tosti's "Good Bye" in a
low, rich contralto and then turns
on amazing high notes which reach
a climax of great beauty. Miss
Claire is generous with her encores
ana returns again and yet again.
As a final offering she sings a flute
like obligato to a spirited rendition
of Sousa's "Stars and Stripes," which
brought her overwhelming applause.
Harry Downing and his company
is remarkably worth while. Against
a handsome and unique background
a musical revue of delightful pro
portions assembles itself. An excel
lent pianist, a young man, provides
the melody background, and there
are two lovely girls who dance. One
is an acrobatic toe dancer whose
technique is faultless and who
makes graceful and long sustained
risings and balancings on her toes.
The other maid calls to mind Mari
lynn Miller and is every bit as
graceful and young and talented as
is Miss Miller. A youthful man
dancer delights with his eccentric
steps and excellent imitations of
Georgie White and others. Out from
them all in this act, however, stands
the comedy of Harry Downing in
his travesty of a prima donna at
work. His comedy is spontaneous,
his voice is unusually interesting, of
two distinct qualities, one a light
baritone and the other a falsetto of
remarkable sweetness and color. The
