JITNEY FEVER CURED
Hurricane Deck of Express
Wagon Haven of Safety.
HORSE EARNS MEAL TICKET
Isaac Davis Tells of "Flyer" in
Rapid Transportation Business,
Emerging With More Experi
ence and Dess Money.
From the hurricane deck .of a one-horse-power
express wagon to the
bridge of a 32-passenger jitney 'bus
and back again is the terse story of
the attempt of Isaac Davis to grasp a
fortune in the latest development of
urban transportation. Mr. Davis says
his hope to become a traction magnate
was a vain one, and he is again slap
ping the lines on the back of his faith
ful steed and clucking to mm as or oia.
The stand of Expressman Davis,
sometime jitney owner, is at Fourth
and Stark streets. Like many others,
he said he saw golden visions in the
a-asoline transportation business, and
deserted his one-horsepower vehicle
for one 30 times as great on February
1. On April 1 he resumed his express
wagon, having gained valuable experi
ence in the interim, but he estimates
he dropped $500 in the experiment, be
sides losing wages, for two months.
He has been in the express business for
five years, and says, as a meal ticket,
the exnress wagon has the jitney 'bus
beaten seven ways.
Figures Prove Alluring.
He figured, along with other en
thusiasts who evinced a desire to sell
him a bus and start him on the road to
fortune, that a 32-passenger bus couia
take in $30 a day. Of this amount, $20
could be figured for overhead expenses
and depreciation of equipment. Still,
$10 a day velvet wouia lie quite satis
factory and he launched his venture
with rosy prospects of success.
The first day, however, aasnea ma
hopes. Gross receipts were i6.au on
the North Portland run, where he
started business. He naa-iraiiic ar
rjnmmrnu with the company, from
which ho bought his car for $960. and
that concern suggested he take another
route. This proved easier to suggest
than to adjust satisfactorily and his
routing was not entirely satisfactory
as a nickel-getting venture. Ultimate
ly he tried many routes, mciuamg oeu
wood. Alberta. Portsmouth, Lent.
Broadway and oth ;rs, but in all there
was disappointment in store for him.
Insurance Is Abandoned.
The first month he had repair bills
amounting to $!. he said. He iook out
a liability policy to safeguard him
against accidents, but he gave that up
as an expensive luxury at the end of
the first month, wnen ne iouna m
other Jitney owners did not provide
themselves with like protection.
After vovaeing more mties over t-ori-
land's pavements in the two months he
operated the Jitney man ne naa pre
viously in a year as pilot ot his ex
press wagon, Mr. Davis concluded the
jitney business was a "flivver, and was
glad to return his bus to those who sold
it to him for 50 cents on every dollar
of the purchase price.
"It can't be done," said Mr.' Davis
yesterday. "I know, because I tried it.
The express wagon is better than a
jitney any day.
CAPTAIN KELLOGG NOT WED
Man Named In Suit as One Husband
of Woman Is Xot He.
Captain E. E. Kellogg, whose head
quarters are at the foot of Salmon
street, said yesterday that he had been
receiving numerous congratulations as
the result of a news item appearing in
The Oregonian, in which W. H. Brown,
in a suit for divorce, was reported to
have alleged that the woman whom he
married had been previously married
to a number of men, including E. E.
Kellogg. The Captain denied that he
was the Kellogg referred to.
"I like to receive congratulations
when I have earned them," eaid Cap
tain Kellogg, "but in this instance it
is some other man who should be the

PETITIONS READY TODAY

' TO BEGIN TOMORROW.

the referendum on the jitney regula

April 2 is to be started by the jitney
drivers tomorrow. City Attorney
LaRoche yesterday approved the form
of petition put out by the jitney in
terests and those backing the move
ment ordered copies printed. These
will be ready for distribution to the
It is the Intention of the Auto
Transit "Welfare Society, which is the
prime mover in the referendum plan,
to get the required 7608 names on the
petitions as quickly as possible. The
petitions then will be filed. This will
mean the reference of the measure to
a vote of the people at the city elec
tion to be held in June, 1917.
In case the referendum is ffled, it is
likely the City Council will take im
mediate steps to head off the plan to
hold off a vote on the measure until
June, 1917. The only way this can be
done is for the Council to repeal the
ordinance as passed and to prepare
and pass another measure. At the
same time the Council could adopt a
resolution to submit the measure to a
vote of the people at the June election
this year, under the initiative.
The referendum petition as put out
bears the customary warning- that only
legal voters may sign. The petition
contains a copy of the jitney ordinance.
