Republican Civic League Sug
gests Improvements on
the Present Plant.
Estimates Prepared to Show City
Might Save Enough in Ten Years
to Build Another Incinerator
Should It Bo Needed.
J That the best solution of the gar
bage problem In Portland Is (or the
city to retain the present plant, im
prove it and take up municipal collec
tion of refuse, is the argument that
will be made to the special committee
of the Council by representatives, of
the Oregon Republican Civic League.
It is argued that the present Incin
erator will burn all the garbage of
the city and answer every need for
at least 10 years to come. By that
time, it is declared, the city will have
saved enough from the operation of
the plant to replace It with a larger
and more modern burner.
Estimates of the cost of Improving
the present plant together with the
cost of operating, Including municipal
collection, have been prepared by F.
E. Reed, secretary of the league. He
says this his organlxation has no In
terest in the matter other than to see
the city adopt the policy from which
greatest benefit will come. The pur-J
chase of an expensive site ana tne
t erection of a costly Incinerator would
be a needless expenditure, he says, be
Bides being contrary to the wishes of
the residents of any given locality
where the burner might be built.
The plan that has been outlined is
for the city to make more sightly Its
present four-and-one-half-acre tract in
North Portland by the planting of
trees and other Improvements, at a
cost of $2000. New barns and sheds
should be erected at a cost of $10,000,
and in addition to this a roller sys
tem of drying garbage should be In
stalled at an expense of $15,000. The
largest single expenditure would be
the purchase of B0 steel-covered wag
ons, teams and harness, estimated at
Revenue and Kxpenses.
The monthly returns from the plant
are approximated at $22,700. These are
divided as follows: 15,000 collections
at 80 cents, $12,000; 1000 collections
from hotels, saloons, etc., $5000; extra
collections, dirt, cinders, trees, etc.,
$5000; collections of dead animals,
$200; sale of paper, cans, etc., $500.- '
On the other hand, the monthly ex
penses of operation are estimated at
$10,000. These are Itemized as .fol
lows: Fifty teams at $4.B0 a day,
$6750; operation of crematory, $1250;
office rent, help and extra men, $2000.
With expenses of only $10,000 and re
ceipts of $22,700, it wllf be seen that
the net monthly profits to the city
would be $12,700. Therefore, if this es
timate should prove correct or any
where near so, in the 10 years that
It Is said the plant would last, the city
would make sufficient money to build
another crematory and also purchase
a site If required.
These are the arguments that will
, be advanced before the Council com
mittee by the league, and Mr. Reed
declares that the estimate of expenses
as he has outlined them can be sub
stantiated. His figures on cost of op
eration are much lower .than those of
Superintendent Daggett, but he asserts
that he Is ready to convince the com
mittee that they would be borne out
In actual experience. Mr. Reed was
at the head of the Portland Sanitary
Company, which some time ago ap
plied to the city for a franchise to
handle the garbage. Xt was on this
estimate that his company was plan
ning to make a profit operating the
crematory, and since the franchise,
was not. granted, he is ready to turn
the data over to the city.
In the estimates that are made the
fees for collecting are lower than
those now charged by Independent
scavengers. At present scavengers
charge 50 cents each for collecting
small cans and $1 each for large cans.
In Mr. Reed's estimate the small cans
are Included at 40 cents and the large
ones at 75 cents. Instead of $2.50 a
load and $1.50 for part loads, it is said
that the work can be done for $2 and
$1. It Is also said that under mu
nicipal supervision the collection can
all be done between the hours of 7
P. M and 7 A. M. in the Winter and
9 P. M. and. 7 A. M. in the Summer.
Oppose Taxing Residents.
The league is opposed to collecting
garbage by municipal taxation, as it
declares this would be an Injustice to
the small householder who would have
to pay more than his rightful propor
tion to provide scavengers for the
restaurants, commission houses and
other places where the accumulation
of garbage is large. Neither would It
be feasible to district the city and
sell the privileges. It Is argued, as the
scavengers would not pay for the out
lying routes where there would be few
to collect from. For the purpose of
serving suburbs such as Sellwood. Ful-
nn Mnnnt Tahnp n n j 1 Xfnntavilla th.
league proposes that the city buy sev
eral closed steel cars and . carry the
refuse to the crematory over the
tracks of the street railway company.
Cannot Agree on New Site.
The league will be represented at
the next meeting of the committee,
which will probably be held this
week. The Council has so far been
unable to select any site for a new
crematory and It has- begun to look
as though the present tract In North
Portland will be retained. Councilman
Beldlng Is the only 'member of that
body who has yet recommended that
the , present incinerator be used for
several years longer. He declares that
If the garbage Is dried,' It will be pos
sible for the plant to meet every
probable demand put on It.

Multnomah's Thanksgiving Concert
and Ball to Be Big Social Affair.
Plans are progressing rapidly for the
society features of Multnomah Club's
Thanksgiving Day. festivities. Artists of
wide fame are being secured who will
make a grand success of the Old Ballad
Concert, and this feature - alone will
prove of interest not only to the club
members, but to the public in general.
A concert of this kind has not been given
In Portland for a long time, and indeed
never before on the elaborate scale
promised for this one now being arranged.
Music lovers never tire of the good old
songs, and when the Multnomah Club
committee announce their list of singers,
they have every reason to believe the
event will prove one of the most Impor
tant from a musical standpoint that has
been undertaken In this city for years.
Following the concert will come the big
Society Ball, and nothing is being spared
to make this concluding feature of the
day's festivities a grand and memorable
event. Arrangements are being made to
accommodate an attendance of not less
than 6000 to 6O0O spectators and dancers,
and nothing will be omitted which will
contribute to the enjoyment of those
It is expected full and definite an
nouncement of the entire Thanksgiving
Day programme will be made within the
next few days, as all plans are nearly

Union Oil Company to Occupy Con
crete Building on East Side.
It is reported that the Union n Com
pany of California Is closing negotiations
for a 15-year lease on the new reinforced
concrete warehouse that is just being
completed by Fisher, Thorsen & Co., at
East First and East Salmon streets. The
consideration of the lease. It is under
stood, is approximately $10,000 a year.
Although representatives of both com
panies say that the agreement has not
been definitely concluded, the Jjnlon O.l
Company Is already moving Its posses
sions Into the building. Several tanks
are also being Installed, and It Is gen
erally understood that this warehouse is
to be the headquarters of the Union Oil
Company In Portland.
The building is one of the finest rein
forced concrete structures that has been
erected in Portland. It covers a full
half block and Is two stories in heigh,
with basement. The property lies oppo
site the storehouses of the Standard O.i
Company. It has sidetrack connections
with the Southern Pacific trak.
The lease is one of the most Important
that has been made on the East Side
and the consideration of $10,000 a year il
lustrates the value of warehouse property
In that part of the -city. Several similar
structures have been erected In this dis
trict during the past year.

The validity -of the assessment roll
of Multnomah County has been assailed

County Board of Equalization: Yes
terday additional and more specific
charges affecting the legality of the as
sessment roll and the validity of the val
uations at which corporate property has
been assessed, were filed by the Oregon
Railroad & Navigation Company, also
a Harriman corporation,' the Northern
Pacific Terminal Company and the North
Pacific Terminal Company. In ad
dition to attacking the regularity of the
assessment, each of these corporations
demands that the. valuations at which
property has been listed be reduced In
many Instances more than 50 per cent.
Since there appears to be a concerted
effort on the part of the public service
corporations to defeat the work of As
sessor Slgler, who has made the most
liberal assessment of these properties In
the history of the county, the two acting
members of the County Board of Equal
izationAssessor Sigler and County Clerk
Fields have decided not to give these in
terests any possible technicality- on which
to wage their fight against their assess
ments. For that reason the Board will
sit all day Monday for the purpose of
receiving written complaints from prop
erty owners. The law requires that the
Board of Equalization shall be in session
for one week and on the theory that one
week consists of seven days, exclusive of
Sunday, the members of the Board have
decided to meet Monday.
Calls It an Income Tax.
In its protest filed yesterday, the Ore
gon Railroad & Navigation Company at
tacks the assessment of its properties
on the ground that the valuations were
determined by the .Assessor by computing
them from the net earnings of the com
pany, according to the sworn statement
filed by the officers with the Interstate
Commerce Commission. This practice is
denounced as the equivalent of levying
an -Income tax and not in compliance
with the law regulating the assessment
of property.
Particular exception Is taken by the
corporation to the assessment of an item
of $16,180,000 of bills receivable and It is
demanded that this amount, together
with . that of $20,000, for which the com
pany's franchise Is assessed, be annulled
and expunged from the roll. Material
reductions are demanded in the assess
ment of the other property of this cor
poration in the following amounts: 294.50
acres comprising the Alblna carshops
from $818,000 to $500.000: . 107 acres In Ca
ruthers D. I C. from $310,000 to $125,
000 ; 5.27 acres of land in St. John from
$16,000 to $7500 ; 2S0 acres, section 21, T. 1
N., R. 2, E., from $28,000 to $14,000; assess
ment of its main line from $44,000 per
mile to $20,000; assessment of its St. John
branch from $20,000 to $9000.
Hill Road's Complaint.
Complaining that Its assessment is "ex
cessive, unjust, unfair and illegal and is
disproportionate to the assessment of
other taxable property of the county,"
the Northern Pacific Railway Company
demands that the assessment of $44,000
a mile on its roadbed be reduced to $14,
500 a mile. In filing this protest, the
company served notice on the Board that
It retained the right to object to the le-'
gallty of the assessment and the legality
and authority of the Board of Equaliza
tion. A similar complaint is made by the
North Pacific Terminal Company, which
lays particular stress on what It con
siders the "excessive and disproportion
ate assessment" of Its holdings. In Its
protest this corporation represents that
the amount for which It Is assessed this
year Is 73 per cent greater than that of
last year, when It was listed at $1,316,500,
which It considers a liberal valuation to
be charged against Its possessions. The
protest recites that the terminal com
pany was Incorporated and is operated
solely for the purpose of furnishing
terminal facilities for the various rail
roads and lines of rail transportation en
tering the City of Portland; that no
profit arises to it from its operation; that
the receipts from the property at no time
are In excess of the actual cost of oper
ating the system and ' maintaining the
It Is . further alleged . in the protest
that the franchise of the company is not
a source of revenue and that the assess
ment as made by the Assessor was made
and returned without authority of law. .
Machinery Put Too High.
The Willamette Iron & Steel Works has
asked the Board to revise Its. assessment
as follows: Reduce the assessment on
machinery from $150,000 to $75,000; Increase
the assessment of merchandise from $30,
500 to $50,000. The company has no ob
jection to the assessment of its notes
and accounts, which are listed at $50,000.
The local office of the New York Life
Insurance Company asks that the as
sessment of its personal property be re
duced from $1075 to JlfO.
The question of double assessment was
raised yesterday by the Marshall-Wells
Hardware Company, which objected to
Its assessment of money, notes and ac
counts for $270,000. The company con
tends that since the greater part of its
accounts represent goods that have been
sold to customers, taxes will be charged
and collected against theso goods from
their present owners.. The company asks
that this Item be eliminated from its as
sessment. When the Board ended its labors yes
terday only 327 written complaints had
been filed, as against 527 last year.
Senator Fulton's IVork in Washing
ton Well Spoken Of.
William B. Turner, printing clerk of
the United States Senate, is home from
his official duties in Washington and
is staying at the Imperial Hotel. Al
though he expects to leave the city,
possibly today, he will be In and out
of Portland until November 16, when
he will leave for the National capi
tal, where ' he reports for duty No
vember 23.
"While I am here in Portland, or
for that matter in the state, ' I w.ant
to say a good word for Senator Fulton."
he said last night in the hptel. "Ore
gon today has one of the best members
In the Senate, and by all means should
keep him there. Senator Fulton is
not an orator, but a good, keen busi
ness man and a statesman. His work
as chairman of -the hardest worked
committee In Congress, the committee
on claims, has made him a reputation
In Washington as a first-class, effec
tive man. Although a Senator Is sup
posed to remain practically silent dur
ing the first term, and especially during
the early part of that term. Senator
Fulton had a peculiar chance to show
what was in him by the part he took
In the debate on the railroad rate
bill. As I am myself from Oregon,
I was congratulated by many Sena
tors who heard and worked with- Sena
tor Fulton on having such an able man
to represent this state in the Senate.
"I have been on the official staff In
Washington for nearly ten years, and
during that time I have had a chance
to see the Inside of how things are
done In Washington. There Is a con
stant complaint from, the West that
the East has the controlling influence
In the Senate. The reason for this-Is-simple.
The Eastern states find good
men for their Senators and then keep
them In office term after term. The
Western states,, on the other hand,
are, as a rule, constantly changing
their Senators and Congressmen. The
result Is that a man no sooner learns
the Ins and outs of things in Washing
ton, and how to get measures through,
than he must give way to a green man.
The Eastern states, therefore," have
trained men matched against compara
tively new men from the West. The
result Is that the East wins out against
the West.
"The Western states are slowly
learning this fact. Iowa, for example,,
has as much influence In the Senate
as has Rhode Island or Maine, - and
she gets this power by keeping her
Senators in office term after term.
Many Eastern states keep their Sena
tors In office pracu-..y for life. They
put- a good man in and keep him there
till he dies. Hence, the most desir
able chairmanships and . the best and
most important committees 'fall to the
Eastern states, for the older and more
experienced Senators get them, no mat
ter what state they come from. Per
sonal influence cuts a great figure in
Washington,' Just as It does anywhere
else, and new men In any line of ac
tion have not the knowledge or the
acquaintance of thoroughly seasoned
men. The moral Is obvious."
Mlxup of Pianos Causes Four Va
cancies at Local Piano-House.
Last Friday will be remembered by
quite a number of the Eilers Piano
House force as an unlucky Friday in
deed. A new and overzealous ship
ping clerk and a handicapped delivery
service were the combination that pre
vented the use of her favorite Instru
ment, the Weber, by Maud Powell dur
ing her splendid concert at the Heillg,
Friday afternoon.
The big Weber concert grand in
tended for this occasion ,had been
used the evening before in . a recital
at an uptown hall. The new delivery
clerk did not deem it necessary to look
after its removal to" the Heillg stage
until after noon. The regular dray
service of the house was then busily
employed In delivery work that had
piled up owing to the heavy selling
during the preceding days. A willing,
but as it developed Inexperienced, dray
force, was sent to bring In the val
uable concert grand. When they saw
the job the monster concert grand
they simply threw up all hands, and
drove off In despair.
The time for the concert drew near.
No dray appearing with the costly con
cert grand, the new assistant shipping
clerk waiting at the theater. Inex
perienced In the preferences and dis
likes of great artists, pounced upon
the glorious Chlckering, which was
still upon the Heillg stage, and which
had delighted and charmed artist and
audience at the Maconda recital the
evening .before. It would not do,
thought he, to have the name appear
to a puzzled audience. A shop boy
was - telephoned for, who quickly
painted lampblack over the name. An
"insignificant" matter of this kind In
the minds of shopboy and new deliv
ery clerk was not deemed important
enough to report to the management.
Thus It was that the Ellers people
were, not Informed. of the complicated
situation, and the world's greatest
violinist has left Portland without the
usual cordial letter of commenAitlon
and acknowledgment to the House of
Ellers. For, - whisper it gently, the
lampblack during the many compli
cated passages . under the fingers of
the famous Maurice Eisner, Mme. Pow
ell's accompanist, came off In liberal
quantities, and, it is said, much to the
merriment of all concerned". Unfor
tunately, however, the affair was con
sidered so serious at Ellers headquar
ters that four vacancies on 'the staff
have been occasioned thereby. -

need of Furniture, Carpets, Stoves and other House Furnishings give
us a chance to show you our goods and quote you our prices. You
need -not buy from us If we cannot do better by you than the other
stores. It will be worth your while to come to our store before you
buy elsewhere. Do not be hoodwinked by the large Fake Signs of an
other store that would have you believe that It is fighting the Furni
ture Trust. A store of that kind is not to be trusted. Come to the
only Independent Furniture Store in Portland and that Is the
Independent Furniture Co.
