TAX LIMITATION TO
HIT THREE BUDGETS
County, State and Port of
Portland Must Cut Down
OTHERS ARE WITHIN LAW
Exceptionally Low lievy Made by
State Because of $500,000,
Which Now Proves to Be
The county, the state and the Port
f Portland are the only local branches
of government that have any worries
as a result, of the adoption by the
voters of the 6 per cent tax limitation
Jaw at Tuesday's election. The city.
School Board, Jock Commission and
county library budgets already are
within the law.
The county faces the necessity of
trimminsr $24,000 out of its road budget
Tor next year, the county general
budget must be trimmed $49,000 and
the Port of Portland must get rid of
something like $18,000. The state will
be hit to the extent of being unable
to raise sufficient funds next year to
carry on the state work and state in
stitutions as they have been conducted
during the present year, according to
State lilt by Surplus.
The state, 'according to State Treas
urer Kay, made its tax levy exception
ally low for the present year because
a surplus of $500,000 in funds was car
ried over from last year and there
fore the amount did not have to be
raised by taxation. With a. limit of 6
per cent placed on the amount that the
present year's tax amount can be In
creased, the state will be unable to
raise a sufficient amount to make up
the $500,000 which the state gave the
taxpayers the benefit of this year.
The county road budget, as submit
ted, totaled $693,000 for 1917, as com
pared with $631,000 raised for the pres
ent year. Under the tax limitation law
this would allow the road fund to be
Increased $38,000 next year. The In
crease in the budget as it stands now
Is $62,000, which means the road budget
must be trimmed $24,000 to get within
the law. No trouble Is expected in get
ting rid of this amount..
County Most Make Cut.
The amount asked for county gen
eral purposes is somewhere near $840,
600 for 1917, as compared with $746,000
for 1916, a proposed increase of about
$94,000. The new tax law permits an
increase of only $44,000, which means
that the county general budget must be
pruned $49,000. It may entail some cuts
There is a question as to whether the
couity budget's including the road
budget and the county general budget
cannot be considered as one. This
would mean the cutting out of the two
budgets a total of about $73,000, in
stead of the cut being divided $24,000
for the roads and $49,000 for the gen
eral, if the budgets are handled sep
arately. The city of Portland budget, as
adopted. Is about $4000 under the legal
amount that could be increased over
the present year's budget, while the
School Board could increase its budget
$79,000 and still be within bounds of
the new law.
Writes Election Jingle.
Incessant Call of Telephone Bells

ALBANY, Or., Nov. 11. (Special.)
Having answered telephone calls by
the hundreds the past few days to give
out election information David G. Bail
lie of the Albany Evening Herald, was
inspired yesterday to write a rhyme
which doubtless expresses the feelings
of scores of Oregon newspapermen
during the hours when uncertainty con
tinued as to the result of the race
It runs like this:
"Hear the jingle of the bells, "phony
belle. How they jingle, jingle, jingle,
through the dreary hours of night till
we yell out in affright. But the bells,
bells, bells, bells, bells, bells, keep on
dinging, keep on ringing In despite.
And many kinds of voices, not a one
of which rejoices cry in grief that's
unaffected, 'Is it true that he's excited?'
It's over, but the shouting, so what's
the use of doubting, and kindly, if you
Jove us, for the sake of saints 'above
us, please, no longer thus coufound us
or you'll surely 'underground' us. Ring
off, bells, bells, bells, bells, bells bells."

Prospects are that taxpayers in

figure is based on the probable total
levy of the various branches of gov
ernment supported in whole or in part
by taxpayers of Portland.
The state, county school, county gen

Port of Portland levies are still indefi

Based on this estimate the taxpayers
of Portland next year will pay $27 on
each . $1000 of assessed valuation of
their property as compared with $25.40
paid for the same purposes this year.
The levy for the City of Portland
shows a big increase due to a decrease
in assessed values and also to the pol

part of a deficiency in funds which
has bothered the city for about two
years. This has caused an Increase in

More freak election bets. were paid yesterday. The great favorite seemed to be the old wheelbarrow bet, the
loser wheeling the winner through the streets.
Two Wilson men. at Jones' Cash Store, enjoyed the triumph of riding on the weather decks of wheelbarrows in
the noon hour yesterday. Two of their fellow employes, "disenjoyed" the task of wheeling them from the store,
at First and Oak streets, up to The Oregonian building, and back again.
Tim O'Leary was wheeled by Charles Laff, who bet on Hughes. Edward Dackins rode at the expense of A. C.
Woods, who also picked Hughes to win.
O. E. Lightner, a Wilson backer, wheeled I. F. Marte. a Hughes man. in a wheelbarrow from Tenth to Second

other representatives of the cement
company the visitors from Portland
followed the raw material from its in
troduction to the machinery of the
plant through each of the 11 buildings
to the railroad cars where the finished
product is started for the markets.
The entire property of the company
embraces 43 acres and cost in the
neighborhood of $1,500,000. Including
the plant and the quarries. The daily
output is 1100 barrels and between 30
and to men are employed.
The Portland business men had thir
first hnts on cement manufacture at
the crushers where the two grades of
rock are crushed and then conveyed on
wide belts and dropped into large rock
bins. From the bins the material is
sent to what is known as the raw
grind building where it is ground un
der a wet process which renders it
slurry. Then the material is pumped
across the yards and passed through
a kiln 210 feet long. The kiln in
stalled at Oswego is the oil-burner
type and it produces temperature of
240-0 degrees at the extreme end. a heat
that transforms the material Into

In this state it is sent into storage
and then into what Is known as the
finish grind. After it has passed
through two mills it is turned out as
cement ready for the tall storage
towers and the packing rooms where
it is prepared for shipment.
Among the auxiliary buildings on
the company property are the offices,
the carpenter, machine and blacksmith
shops and the testing laboratories
where the cement is examined as to
standard. The quality of Oswego is
said to be even above standard, its
tensile strength being 30 or 40 per cent
more than required.
About 120 of the excursionists left
Portland on the Fourth-street train
shortly before 2 o'clock, returning on
the train arriving about 5 o'clock. A
number, however, motored to the plant.

roseated creain. as it is an entirely

Tokalon (Roseated) but an v good
brand will do. If you have wrinkles
get a box of Japanese Ii-e Pencils and
use them In connection with the cream
and you CHn get quick action on the
deepest wrinkles, no matter of how

most astonishing results. Also the
use of a little Santonex (sold by drug
lists) on the face each morning will
almost immediately suppress the ap
