Commission Form of Govern-men-
Pronounced Good.
Thr Commissioners and ths CItr
Engineer, of Taeoma. visited Portland
resterday for the purpose, of Inspecting
Iho new Hawthornt-arenue lift Midge
before selecting tbo style of bridges
to be built over the Puget Sound
waterway ar.d the Puyallup waterway
lr their city, for which 150.000 In
bonds bare been TOted. The principal
bridge In Taeoma Is orer the Puget
found waterway and the Commllon
rs look with favor upon the lift pat
tern In preference to the bascule, or
-Jnchnlfe" bridge.
The Commissioners on the junket
are Milton Lawson. Commissioner of
tie LlgM ar.d Water Department: Ray
freeland. Commissioner of Finance,
and Owen Woods. Commissioner of
I'ubllo Works. V. C. Kellgh. City
engineer, accompanied the party as
xpert. .
-I think the vertical lift bridge Is
what we want." said Commissioner
Woods, last night. "We have elimin
ated the old draw, or swing bridge,
and are to decide between a bascule
and vertical lift. The bridge over the
waterway will be larger than the Haw-tnorne-avenue
bridge In Portland. It
will be TO feet wide, allowing to feet
roadway for doable street car tracks,
and 1 feet on each side for sidewalks.
The Government requires an opening
joe feet. As a bascule bridge will
necessitate two aprons, which will be
100 feet high when the bridge Is open.
It Is not practical when a strong wind
Is blowing-. The surface would be too
big. A lift bridge does not catch the
wind, and besides, It Is solid when In
place. Railroad companies bave found
the bascule bridge weak In the center
where two aprons are used.
"There Is nothing strange about the
difficulty -with the Hawthorne lift
bridge because of the counterweights.
The same condition Is encountered with
elevators. It Is necessary to balance
the counterweights with the carriage
and the same rule obtains concerning
lift bridges. As soon as the weights
on the Hawthorne bridge are adjusted,
there will be po difficulty.
"In Taeoma our bridge will be CO feet
above the water and the lift will not be
as hlca as the bridge In Portland."
Concerning the Ornimkaion form of
government hi Taeoma. the Commis
sioners say it Is a success and far su
perior to the old system.
"We meet every day as a council." sold
Commissioner Freeland. "and wipe the
docket clean, so to speak. Each Com
missioner la personally responsible for
his department and the four CommWw on
ers and Mayor, sitting as a legislative
body, are not long In passing upon the
recommendations of a Commissioner. If
thore is anything we choose to Investigate
for ourselves. It does not take long to
get Into an automobile or on a streetcar
and do so
The commission form of government
Is not a failure nor are we running be
hind on finances. Tliere were many big
undertakings the former administration
started that wo are carrying out We In
herited financial burdens and sre shoul
dering them to the satisfaction of the
Taeoma has adopted an antl-treatlng
ordinance, which will be effective one
week from tomorrow. When asked to
explain Its provisions. Commissioner
Woods said:
The ordinance simply prohibits treat
ing. It means that one man may not
buy a drink for another. If a bartender
accepta pay for two drinks he commits
an offenew under the ordlnmnoe. Esich
man must bur Ms own drink, even If two
walk into a saloon together."
When asked If the ordinance would be
successfully enforced, the three Com
missioners Just smiled.
"We don't know whether It will go.
said Commissioner Woods, "for a referen
dum has been called. A petition Is being,
circulated and the people may vote it
them all the recall. At the recent
Kalama city election, out of 284 votes
cast, 103 . were those of women, who
were shown every courtesy and were
permitted to vote unchallenged by any
member of the election board.

While we do not at this sale (sell
ing at factory wholesale price as we
are, and without profit) take second
hand or used pianos in exchange, I sold
a fine, massive "art" style "Cote"
piano to a lady yesterday who has
asked me to take her second-hand up
right Steinway piano to our store and
sell it for her, for the best price it
would bring at once, and apply the
proceeds on her new "Cote" piano,
and she would immediately send us a
check for the balance. She has not
handicapped me to any set price, but
simply 6aid, "Sell it, and apply pro
ceeds." Therefore I feel that, as she
bought her new piano at the factory
wholesale price, saving thereby nearly
three hundred dollars, she can afford
to sell her second-hand Steinway for
most any old price in reason, and,
while it is a late, modern-style case,
comparatively new and in perfect con
dition, in order to sell it right quick
I'm going to offer it for sale tomor
row at $200, and the first person who
sees this piano and wants to buy a
NAME will TAKE it
It is a medium size, in handsome
mahogany case, showing no mars and
but little use. The lady says she paid
six hundred dollars cash for it.
Who wants it tomorrow at two hun
dred t See it, try it, and buy it, at
the Cote Piano Mfg." Co. 's Store, 361
Morrison street, corner of Park, where
all styles of our fine and new "Cote"
pianos are on sale at less than half
price, and a brand-new Weber up
right to compare them with.
Any intending purchaser buying a
piano at this time without first seeing
these beautiful Cotes direct from the
factory and getting the wholesale
prices on same, is standing very much
in his own light, and very much out of
tune with justice to himself.
We are selling pianos many dollars
lower here than any retail house ever

Boycott Declared Federal Issue.
SAN FRANCISCO, Dec 10. Danbury
hftts were the subject of a dispute heard
before the United States Circuit Court
here yesterday. Dietrich. Loewe & Co..
of Danbury, Conn., sought a permanent
Injunction to restrain the California Fed
eration of Labor from boycotting the
hats made by the company. A prelim
inary injunction had been Issued sev
eral months ago. The attorneys for the
union - argued that the Federal courts
had no Jurisdiction, but opposing coun
sel contended that the Influence of the
California Federation of Labor extended
outside the state and made an interstate
Issue of the boycott question. The Loewe
Company obtained a permanent Injunc-
tlon In Connecticut against the Journey
men hatters of Danbury and a Judgment
for $240,000 against the members of the
Highest Grade Men's Wear.
