Professor Marsh taught for 48 years.
suspended classes for the day and tr.
entire student body attended the serv
: l. es. There were also present hundred
f n.nni. to whom Professor Marsh
was a beloved neighbor and fellow-
townsman, and many others, alumni
nd old students of Pacific from Port
land and other parts of Oregon.
While this final tribute to the mem
, ory of Professor Marsh was being: paid
In the Congregational cnurcn at -ror
est Grove, thousands who were unable
to attend were saddened by the knowl
odge that they had lost a dear and
: revered friend. It is doubtful If any
; ether educator In the Pacific Northwest
has a record of continuous service, cov
ering so long a period. The death of
Professor Marsh is a distinct loss, not
only to Forest Grove, but to the stale.
Ills Influence Fnr-ReacnlnaT.
During the half century that Pro
fessor Marsh taught at Pacific It is
liardly possible that even one student
failed to gain his close personal friend
ship. His personality and influence
permeated the whole institution, reach
ing far beyond the classroom and
touching a vital spot in the life of each
Individual man and woman. The
pleasure of knowing Professor Marsh
. and of being brought in,to contact with
his rare scholarship is a cherished
memory to all who have gone out from
the pioneer college where he taught.
3o alumnus or old student returning
to Forest Grove neglected to call on
Professor Marsh, and not even In his
enfeebled later years did the pioneer
educator fall immediately to recognize
any such caller and to greet him with
a warmth and cordiality that were
In the educational history of the Pa
cific Northwest Professor Marsh will
te given high rank. The late H. W.
Ecott, who first knew Professor Marsh
in the early days of Pacific, held him
in high regard and declared he was
one of the great scholars of the west.
This sentiment has been echoed by all
who knew Professor Marsh in the dec
ades that have followed.
Concise RnKtlsh Ilia Hobhy.
He was a profound student of Latin
and Greek, not regarding them as dead
' languages, but as the best means of
. studying the writings of the old his
torians and philosophers. As an au
thority on these subjects he was well
' Jtnown beyond the boundaries of the
state- His interest as a scholar, how
ever, was not confined to the depart
inent of ancient languages, of which
he had charge. He was a lover of na
ture and took great delight in point
ing out to young people the manifold
wonders to be detected in a aingle
flower or in even the lowest form of
animal life. The use of clear, concise
l-;ngltsh was a hobby with him. and he
was the author of a recognized text
book on English grammar.
Professor Marsh took great interest

lie was a leader In the long and sue
cessful fight to keep the saloon out
of the town and was a persistent
enemy of places that sold liquor il
licitly. Anything that threatened to lower
the moral tone of the community
aroused his hostility. Even strangers
were requested to 'observe the student
rule against the use of tobacco on
the campus, and such a request was
never resented or ignored.
Contributions Were Liberal.
Generosity to a fault was a charac
teristic of Professor Marsh. Although
receiving no income except the meager
valary paid in a small denominational
rollege. he found means to contribute
liberally to every worthy cause.
These donations were continued after
lie retired in 1!07 on a Carnegie pen
sion. He was deeply religious and
srave of both money and time to the
work of the Congregational Church.
was always found actively pro
moting every movement for a better
city and a better rollege.
The library at Pacific stands as a
monument to Professor March. In ad
dition to his duties as a teacher, he
became librarian soon after arriving
.it Forest Grove, In 187, after teach
in? 10 years in Canada and Wiscon
sin. In 1SS7 he hud graduated from
the University of Vermont, where his
father was at one time president. It
was principally throujrh Professor
Marsh s interest and untiring efforts
that the library grew to Its present
size and importance, in its beautiful new
bulldlnjr. Books were his friends and
almost constant companions, and he
.never failed to impress on students
the value of good literature.
Personal Pewer Recognized.
Professor Marsh will always be re
tnembered first of all for his splendid
Christian character. Never hesitating
in his duty, never shirking a task, he
came to be recognized as a man of
prfnt personal power and activity, a
power and activity always used In the
risrht direction. As a teacher, he in
spired his students to their best ef
forts: as their friends t all times, he
helped and simulated "them to a high

a brother of all mankind, he was
superb In doing for others at a sacrifice

REGULATION IS PROMISED
President Griffith Says Streetcar
Keveimc for December Was De
creased $700 Daily and Serv
ice ' Cannot- Be Kept Up.
As a result of a showing made before
the City Council yesterday by President
Griffith and Vice-President Fuller of
the Portland Railway, Light & Power
Company, steps are to be taken to regu
late the jitney bus service in Portland.
The Council at the close of a confer
ence with the streetcar officials asked
them to get the ordinances which have
been Introduced or adopted In other
cities and to present them to the Coun
cil here for consideration.
The declaration was made by Presi
dent Griffith that the jitney service is
no longer a joke. "It has got beyond
that period." he said. "Two weeks ago
when 1 first complained of the service
there were 59 buses operating. Now
there are 125 and they will operate
ust as long as they are permitted - to
do so. They take the close-in business
without which the streetcar company
cannot live. They do not attempt to
compete with the company, they merely
take the eream and leave the skimmed
milk. We are forced by the city to
operate where we lose money. The
jitney- gives ua no competition beyond
the point where service can be given
at a profit.
Loss of Receipts .'t,000.
"I do not mention this in the sense
f a threat but merely as a matter of
absolute fact. If this jitney business
continues and is not checked it will be
Impossible for the streetcar company
to continue Its service as It is now.
Our receipts in December were $1900 a
day less than in December a year ago.
Of this decrease $700 a day was due to
the inroads made by the Jitneys. Our
gross earnings in December were $93,-
000 less than In. December a year ago,
while our taxes were $15,000 higher. .
"The time will come, and Is not far
ff, when we cannot continue our serv
ice on its present oasis. we ao not
propose to lay off men until we have
to, but under conditions as they are now
we cannot stand the strain long.
We do not object to competition If
it is on a fair basis if it lives up to
all the requirements the public and the
law requires of the streetcar company.
The jitneys do not touch the business
that cannot be handled at a profit.
They do not attempt to give service.
They merelyrtT where they can make
the most moey."
Jltueya Aalc Hearing.
President Griffith when asked what
regulation he would suggest, said that
the Council should require ttte Jitneys
to pay fees relatively the same as the
fees Dald by the streetcar company to
operate: they should maintain a sched-
le and give service to all parts of the
ity: should have a liability and should
be required to employ competent men
to handle the machines.
Members of the Council agreed that
the jitneys should be regulated, but
ifl'ered as to the extent of sucn regu-
tion. President Griffith was asked to
gather the ordinances regulating the
service in other cities and to submit
these to the Council here.

NEW CODE N FORM
Regulation of Electrical Men
Before Council Tomorrow.
LICENSE SYSTEM PROVIDED
Board of Appeals to Hear Com
plaints Included Also in Measure
- That Demands -Supervision of
Work if It Is Done by Owner.
Establishment of a license system for
electrical contractors and .creation of
a board of appeals to hear all electrical
complaints are the principal provisions
or a proposed new electrical code which
will be sent to the City Council to
morrow by City Commissioner Dieck.
The measure, which contains several
hundred pages. Is aimed to take the
Place of the present electrical code. It
was drafted originally by a code re
vision committee, made up of the prin
cipal electrical interests and electrical
workers'. - but has been . changed In a
number of important respects by Com
missioner Dleck. ...
Originally the measure provided that
all electrical contractors should de
posit with the "city a surety bond of
$500 and a cash bond of $100 for the
protection Of the Interests of builders
and the city. Electrical workers' unions
made a fight on this proposition on
the ground that it was a plan to drive
out small contractora or workmen who
did contracting and might be unable
to provide a cash bond of $100. . After
several hearings. Commissioner Dieck
cut out the cash-bond feature.
Work Supervision Is Required.
The measure as It stands would pro
hibit any work from being done ex
cept by a property owner on his own
property, unless the work is under. the
supervision of a supervising electri
cian. A supervising electrician is de
scribed in the ordinance as an L elec
trician who has had at least four years'
experience and Is over 21 years of age.
Every such electrician must be regis
tered with the city and every contrac
tor, whether a contracting firm or an
individual, must register and pay a
license fee of $25 a year..
The purpose of this is to drive out
of the business inexperienced men and
boys. . Except in the case- of an owner,
who Is doing work on his own prem
ises, the measure prohibits men with
out at least four years' experience from
working except as a helper to a super
vising electrician. It is said that this
provision is agreeable - to the labor
unions, as well as to the contractors.
In the case of owners doing their
own wiring- the city will discontinue
the -system of free Inspections. Under
the ordinance at present an owner or a
contractor may require any number
of inspections of his work by the city
without paying more than the regular
fee of BO cents or $1. -
Inspections Are Limited.
Under the proposed new measure the
50-cent fee will entitle the person pay
ing it to two' inspections. A charge
of JO cents will be- made for each ad
ditional inspection. It is said that in
the past the city has virtually taught
people the electrical business by mak
ing Innumerable inspections of a job ,
of wiring and giving instructions at
each Inspection as to how the work
should be done. Under the new meaa- ,
