No Ordinance Found Providing
Fee For Moving Picture
STREET WORK CONSIDERED
Two New Ordinances Providing For
Improvements Are Placed on
Deep Interest In Boat Race.
The proposed race for next Sun
day between tho Express and the
Bonlta is causing more speculation
than the Drain railroad at present,
nnd tho sports about town who are
willing to wager money on anything
in tho way of a sporting event are
on the qulvlve. There are stories of
large sums to be wagered, some as
high as five hundred dollars.
Tho original satke was $100 a
side, but it is believed this will bo
Increased before the race is started.
Outsiders take as much interest In
tho matter as tho owners and build
ers of the boats which will contest
and the 'race bids fair to attract at
tention from every section of tho
Coos Bay country. It is well known
there is a friendly rivalry among the
boat builders In Marshfleld, and
since these boats wero constructed
by difforent firms, tho interest in
creases thereby several fold.
A strangor said yestorday: "This
boat race I am hearing about must
moan a great deal to somebody, for
I novor saw more excitement over a
Tho city council held an adjourned
meeting last evening in the city hall,
all members being present, with the
exception of Councilman Savage.
The first business at hand was an ap
plication from D. L. Avery for a
license to conduct a moving picture
show in his skating ring on Front
street. Mr. Avery was represented
by J. W. Snover, who, in his address,
said no ordinance could be found
applying to the case at hand.
Several councilmen offered sugges
tions, and after it was thoroughly
threshed out and understood that
there is no ordinance stating the fee
for such ordinance, Mr. Avery was
advised to proceed with his enter
prise under his skating rink ordi
nance, which expires some time in
August, and thus allow the council
time to prepare a provision to cover
matters of this nature.
Ordinance 27G was read and put
op for 5aal pasage. It provides for
the improvement of Second street
from Pine to Alder, as follows: a
forty-foot macadam roadway; 6-foot
sidewalk; cross walks and grading,
gesides a strip between the sidewalk
and roadway for parking. Discus
sion brought out the fact that the
council preferred to let tho contracts
for the work in separate contracts,
if necessary, to secure lower prices
on the work. The ordinance was
passed with such a provision.
Ordinance 277 was read and put
on passage. Thl3 provides for the
improvement of First street from
the north line of A to the north line
of Third, with similar work as on tho
other. This was passed with the
same provision with regard to letting
tho contract, as the Second street
Bids which have been advertised

Commission Holds Session To
Consider S. P. Company's
RATES PROTESTED AGAINST

havo the freight rates been raised
on onions, but also on fertilizers,
which are very important to tho suc

Onion Growers File Complaint That
Charges Hiue Been Raised
I lice MVely.
Salem, July IS. Tho Southern
Pacific railway company yesterday,
through its attorneys, A. C. Spencer,
W. W. Cotton, and W. D. Fenton,
filed an exception and demurrer to
the "statement" of the state railway
commission relative to the hearing
set for tqday on tho inadequatcy of
depot accommodations which the
commission Is Investigating on its
own motion. This action is taken
by the commission against all the
railways operaitng In this state. The
attorneys for the Southern Pacific
allege that the statement "does not
state facts sufficient to constitute a
cause or ground for ordering any
hearing or making any order against
the corporation with respect to the
matters herein mentioned," and fur
ther that several causes of action
not related rto the questions at issue
and with which tho defendant has
no interest have been improperly
united in one statement.
The Confederated Onion Giowers
yesterday filed a complaint with the
state railroad commission asking for
an investigation of the rates main
tained by tho Southern Pacific on
onion and potato shipments and ask
ing that the- old rates for fifteen
years in effect previous to January
1, 1907, be substituted for those now
In force. The complaint alleges that
the present rate3 are unreasonable,
unjust and discriminatory and oper
ate Irreparable injury to the mem
bers of the association. The rates to
which the association of onion grow
ers has reference are those In effect
between Hillsboro, Tualatin, Beaver-
