Inspection g? Finances Before
' Election Is Invited.
Commissioners to Blake Speeches
on Necessity of Increasing
rvy to 1 1 31111s.
Voters of Portland will not be re
quested to accept as fact the word of
members of the city council in con
nection with the financial condition
of the city and the necessity for an
Increase of the tax levy, but will be
invited to inspect the books of the
city and ascertain the existing con
dition to. their own satisfaction.
This was decided at a speoial meet
ing of the city council yesterday, and
in addition committees composed of
leading business men and representa
tives of civic clubs and organizations
will be urged to call at the city hall
and Inspect the condition of city
The council yesterday named Hal
M White, secretary to Mayor Baker
and manager of the auditorium, to
conduct the campaign for the increase
of the city tax levy from 9 to 11 mills.
Mr. White will conduct the campaign
In connection with his other duties.
Outside help could not be engaged,
members of the city council ex
plained, because of the lack of funds.
Commissioners to Speak.
Each city commissioner is to be
assigned for speaking engagements,
from now until November 12, the date
of the election. Members of the city
council desire every opportunity of
appearing before the voters in order
that the condition of the city's
finances may be made plain. It is
the. consensus- of opinion among the
city officials, that if the voters un
derstand the actual conditions as they
exist, the proposed amendment will
be carried by a large affirmative
"Members of the city council have
studied this proposition for weeks
and months," said Mayor Baker yes
terday, "and we only wish to be given
the. opportunity of transmitting the
facts to the public The extremely
limited funds will make necessary a
personal campaign, carried on by the
officials of the city with the aid of
the city employes, who are vitally
concerned over the condition of city
yty way of showing the large de
crease in revenue entering the city
treasury since 1914, a statement was
yesterday compiled by Chief Deputy
Auditor Grutze. This statement shows
that the revenue from six principal
items of income has decreased from
$1,071,267.58 in 1911 to $158,756.74 in
Liquor Income Lost.
Liquor licenses were a source of
large revenue until 1915, when Port
land was voted dry and of course city
officials point to the fact that nothing
has developed to return this revenue.
A 5 per cent charge allowed for
costs, engineering and advertising on
all improvements was another source
of large revenue from which no fur
ther receipts are now obtained, be
cause of a charter amendment which
eliminated this charge.
The interest on deposits have
shrunk from an average return to the
city of $30,000 a . year to little mot
than $6000. - Premiums on bonds no
longer bring revenue as was the case
in earlier years, and general licenses
are lower by several thousand dollars
a year than was the case in years
prior to 1914.
The only single Item of principal
Vevenue to the city which has in
creased over the general receipts of
former years is the fines assessed by
the municipal court. Although such
receipts provide a considerable in
crease, this advance does not offset
the shrinkage in the other items.
In addition to the loss of much
revenue from these various sources,
the valuation of taxable property has
been reduced, statistics being com
piled now to show the exact amount
of loss to the city on this score to b
given out for publication next week.
Figures Are Given.
The comparative statement showing
the revenues received from six prin
cipal items of income outside of taxes
ttr a number of years is given herewith:

Acquisition of Land.
KLAMATH FALLS. Or., Oct. 18.
(Special.) Fear that action being
taken in California against further
colonization by Japanese will result
in an ivasion of Japanese land-seekers
to Klamath county, has aroused
public sentiment and there is much
discussion of advisability of forming
an anti-Japanese league here to pre
vent Japanese from gaining a foot
hold. The situation has been heightened
In the last few days by the sale of
650 acres of land near Midland to four
California Japanese, who are clearing
eff the tules ad preparing the ground
for a potato crop. This is the first
Japanese farming attempt here, but it
is reported that other California Jap
anese are negotiating for a larger
tract of adjoining land and white
residents with interests in the locality
are talking of organizing to meet the
Ices in the churches of the city and
open house in the afternoon in all of
the fraternities, clubs, sororities and

It is a prerequisite of sound business (and I use the
term business in its broader sense which embraces the
professions) that the cost of production plus a legiti
mate profit must constitute the selling; price.
. No business can stand long that varies from this law.
When cost of production INCREASES, that increase
is almost invariably borne by the consumer.
It is common knowledge that everything essential to
our health and well being now costs more money.
It is also a fact that everyone engaged in production,
from the hodcarrier to the professional man, is of neces
sity receiving more for his services in order that he may
live, despite advancing costs.
It stands to reason, therefore, that the man who
works too cheaply must necessarily deliver INFERIOR
GOODS OR SERVICE, OR BOTH, and eventually the
public will understand this.
Don't worry a moment over this class of competition '
i, is the man who does better work and gives better
service who will "bear watching."
Just so long as I KNOW I am giving my patients
SERVICE SECOND TO NONE (and the word "service"
includes material, workmanship, sanitary precautions,
absence of needless pain and conscientious fees) I have
no fear of cheap competition.
