CAR FARES PESTER
y IMYDH OF SEATTLE
Dr. Brown Finds Barricade
Against His Policies.
PROMISES ARE BLOCKED
Financial Demands Upon System

' r ARTICLE I.
PUGET SOUND BUREAU. Seattle,
Wash., Sept. 12. The mayor of Se
attle, who has been on the job only
since last June, helped himself on
hi Tray Into tho otf ice by the lure of
lower street car fares. His campaign
assurances were given in good laitn
his case was not exceptional. Every
candidate for city office in Seattle
during the lait three years has
campaigned with the promise to
"do something" about the munici-pally-owned
street railway system.
Ever since the carfare took. Its first
upward slant the chorus of cam
paign pledges has been to bring It
back to the nickel. With this
chortis always goes the promise to
"take the street car system out of
Seattle's present mayor. Dr. Ed
win J. Brown, is not now the ardent
advocate of immediate carfare re
duction that he was before his elec
tion. The inside of the street rail
way situation In Seattle has as
pects quite different from those dis
cernible on the outside.
Facts Must Be FaMd.
Men elected to city office and
charged with official responsibili
ties are not disposed to move as
. hastily as their campaign promises
may have led the people to think
they would move. They cannot
storm the stubborn barricade of
facts with no better weapons than
campaign promises and sympathy
with the wishes of street car riders.
Street car fare in Seattle is now
10 cents cash or three tokens for
a quarter 8 1-3 cents. The unani
mous desire is to reduce the fare;
the very general desire is to get
back to 5 cents. The closest stu
dents and the most superficial ob
servers of the situation agree that
there are only three ways by which
a reduction, to 5 cents or any reduc
tion at. all, can be made
First By an almost complete altera
tion in the terms o the contract under
which the system was purchased from
the private corporation and paid for by
t:ie issuance and delivery of $15,000,000
in utility bonds.
Second By a slashing cut in the costs
of maintaining and operating the system.
Involving a curtailment of service.
Third By arbitrary action; cutting the
fares on the chance of inducing an In
crease of street car patronage sufficient
to make up the difference.
These three courses are checked
by certain conditions and circum
stances First The contract of purchase and
the text of the bonds issued In payment
provide that the city shall at all times
maintain a rate of fare sufficient to
cover all the obligations of the system.
By a decision of the United States dis
trict court the city is held to "specific
performance" of this contract provision.
Seoond Under city ownership and op
eration the costs have measurably in
creased over the costs incurred under
private ownership. Business, political,
labor and .intra-city sectional Influences
are effective in inducing the city to ex
penditures that private .owners could not
be compelled to make. Ail such Influ
ences would have to be overcome in re
ducing service and cutting operating
costs. . ...
Third The fare was 5 cents when the
city bought the system. Seattle , was
then throngecr with the industrial work
ers of the war-time period. The city
had no payment to make on the principal
of the purchase-price bonds for nearly
three years. Yet within a few months
it became apparent that the system's
revenues would not be sufficient to meet
its obligations. There is today no such
intensive demand for car service as there
vas in the industrial heyday of 1918
and early 1919. How much the revenues
would be increased by lower fares cannot
be computed. One persons guess is as
good as another's.
Obstacles Block Solution.
Such are some of the obstables
that lie along the only three routes
to reduction of car fares. Another
obstacle to progress by either of
thes routes ,is the decision of the
supreme court of the state of Wash
ington that not a dollar that the
city may raise by general taxation
shall be spent on account of the
street railway system. No deficit
can be met by calling upon the
taxpayers; the system must pay its
That is what the system seems to
be doing at the present rate of fare;
and it is something that clearly was
not done either at the 5-cent fare
or at the 64-cent fare, which was
the first experimental increase. But
even at the 8 1-1 cent fare the sys
tem's financial progress is some
what fitful. The showing is on the
right side of the books; but just
now, for the second time within the
year, the system has had to go on a
warrant basis, suspending cash pay
ments for current costs in order
that money may accumulate to meet
a semi-annual payment of bond In
terest. This recurring condition is
officially regarded as a hazard in
any plan to reduce fares and risk
material loss of revenue.

BODY PARTLY IDENTIFIED
DEAD M AST MAY BE CLARENCE
BARRY, NOT SOX.
Sister and Brother Go to Inde
pendence in Attempt to Make
Sure of Identification.
The body of a man found floating
near Independence Sunday afternoon
may be that of Clarence Barry, 45,
formerly a worker in the Inman
Poulsen mill, who disappeared on Au
gust 4 from his room in the Valley
hotel. But it is not that of Howard
F. Barry, 17, his son, as previously
reported. Mrs. Edith Durbin, 114
East Tenth street, Vancouver, Wash.,
and Fred Barry, Valley hotel, sister
and brother - of the missing -'man,
left yesterday for Independence In
an attempt to identify the body. The
son, Howard Barry, is at the home
of his aunt in Vancouver.
Mrs. B. Thompson, hoqfeeekeeper
at the Valley hotel. 232 Second
street, declares that Clarenoe Barry
whom she has known during the
three years he has lived at the hotel
was acting strangely from the time
of an accident two months ago in
the mill up until his disappearance
ten days ago. Some doubt as to the
identity of the body has been ex
pressed by friends who say that
Barry was 6 feet tall and thin while
the man found has been described as
shorter and heavier. Letters found
in his pocket would seem to clinch
The mistake in identification is
believed to be due to the facf that
the letters were addressed to the
boy from his mother, now Mrs. C. E.
Walsh of Salt Lake City.
The son came west from Ills home
in Salt Lake some weeks ago to
visit his father and had been with
him two weeks when he disappeared.

JOSEPH SIMON HONORED
VETERAN LAWYER GUEST AT
5 Oth Anniversary of Admission to
Practice Remembered by
. Members of Bar.,
To those, who have followed the
political history of Oregon, the most
dramatic moment in the luncheon
given to .Joseph Simon yesterday
was when Herf y E. McGinn poured
forth with all of his characteristic
feeling and earnestnejss a eulogy
to the honor guest.
Long years ago, when Judge Mc
Ginn's hair was not white, but when
Senator Simon's hair was as jet
black as it is today, Simon and
McGinn were Inseparable. Folks
used to pause and turn to look at
them as McGinn and Simon would
walk along the sidewalks wooden
and not cement 'n those days. Then
came one of those breaks which
come in politics, and from being the
closest of friends, they were . at
dagger points, and this separation
has continued down to the present.
Such was the background remem
bered by most of the 250 members
of the bench and bar who assembled
in tie grill roojrp of the Hotel Port
land? yesterday noon to honor Sena
tor Simon on the 50th anniversary
of his right to practice law.
- Unaware that he was to be called
on. Judge McGinn uprose and,
sketching quickly Senator Simon's
life, with dates as accurate as an
almanac, he paid a. tribute, which
brought the attorneys and' judges
to their feet applauding.
"Joseph Simon's word is his bond,"
declared Judge McGinn. "He is
an example and an object lesson to
young men an example of what
dilligence" and work can accomplish."
Judge McUinn said that those
present knew him too well to ques
tion the sincerity of his eulogy, and
knew that unless he felt these sen
timents welling up and surging
through his being, he would have
remained silent. At the conclu
sion of the speech Judge McGinn's
eyes were red and Senator Simon,
unabashed, wiped his own eyes.
There were two toastmasters.
Charles H. Carey, president of the
State Bar association, and Judge
Tucker, president of the Multnomah
Bar association, presided alternate
ly. - ah members but one of the
state supreme court were present.

the bar, September 8. 1872. and
