Revision Declared to Be an
MENACE TO CITY IS SEEN
Tnless Money Is Forthcoming,
Portland Will Suffer From Fires
and Crime, Is Belief.
Portland has outgrown its city
charter, and unless a revised charter
is prepared and placed in operation
the city's progress will be checked,
declares Mayor Baker. Furthermore,
& new charter must be prepared with
in a reasonable time, the mayor be
lieves, or the city wyi suffer unneces
sary fire losses, inefficiency in de
partments, and Increased crime.
The mayor does not believe in any
chance of form of goverynent, being
an ardent believer in the efficiency of
the commission plan. But he does
believe that the experience grained in
the conduct of municipal affairs since
the adoption of the present charter
lias disclosed many changes that
ehould be made to aid in the proper
Administration of the city's affairs.
Levy Held Too Limited.
The present city cnarter, for in
stance, provides that the city cannot
levy in excess of 8 mills in taxation
for money to be used in conducting;
the affairs of Portland, except upon
express approval of the voters. This
amount is too small, according to the
Eight mills was sufficient money
to handle the affairs of the city,"
raid Mayor Baker, "when the charter
"was adopted. But with the increase
in the costs of materials and labor
and with the value of a dollar cut in
two, we really have only 4 mills on
which to operate.
"This is not enough. We have been
forced to appeal to the voters for
additional millage and we will again
be forced to make a campaign for an
additional three mills at the Novem
ber election to conduct the affairs of
the city next year. The city cannot
get along without this money.
Money Declared Insufficient.
"The residents of Portland expect
to get service and this service, to
which they are entitled, costs money.
We haven't enough fire apparatus,
we haven't enough street lights, we
- haven't enough police officers, we
"haven't enough fire stations. But all
" of these things take money.
"The present city charter is all
right as far as it goes," continued the
, mayor, "but you wouldn't expect a
man to continue to wear the clothes
. made for him when he was a boy.
Portland has blossomed out into a
" real city. The present city charter
has provisions In it which might as
well be framed for a village."
t The mayor believes that a com-
petent charter committee should be
appointed. He will make no effort
1 to place such a proposition before the

REBUILDING THE OljTER. WALLS, WHICH WERE PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS.
The James John high school, which is now being reconstructed, will be absolutely safe when It is opened
to the school children about October 15 and it will be safe for many years to come, states R. H. Thomas, school
clerk. The school board is sparing no expense In seeing that the building is properly repaired, since the board
members realize that the -welfare of several hundred children is involved.
The four outside walls have been rebuilt from the ground up and there is no possibility of sag-ping. Strong
concrete posts support the roof trusses and concrete headers have been placed over the windows. The plaster
ing is being started now so that it will be dry when it is time to begin on the woodwork and Inside fixtures.
The contract was let on an estimate of $25,000. - '
About 350 children attend this school and it Is not expected that the number will vary materially from,
these figures this year.
Since the building will not be ready by the opening of school, the pupils will be housed in the Peninsula
school and the three portables, which are situated on the school grounds, and in the Jefferson high school.
The advanced students of the third and fourth years will go to Jefferson.
