count tnemseves lucxy. it is the rule,
rather than the exception for street Im
provements to be fought by the large
property owners, rrom mercenary mo
tives, or because thev do not w&nt tn
pay their share of the work. A perusal
or tne records at the city hall, it la
claimed by many of the authorities,
will bear out this statement in evrv
partleular. . ' .
"You will find certain names atandinff
at the' head of every remonstrance
against : street Improvements," an
nounced Councilman Rumelln, 'and
anyone who carea to Investigate the
situation can ascertain the fact for hla
own benefit" -'
"Certainly we want better trt
said Councilman Sharkey. "My" posi
tion has always been clearly stated on
the question of street improvements,
and my efforts have always been turned
to that object But It haa been a hard,
up-hill tight In the majority of cases,
for, from some reason, there is a gen
eral attempt made, to defeat nearly
every Important Improvement that the
oounoil undertakes. The Union avenue
bridge is only a sample of this policy."
It la a generally recogniaed formula
among engineers and men experienced
inthe- line-f street-work- that good
surfaced thoroughfare must have a top
that will shed, not absorb, water, fcnd
a gutter that will carry it off.. This
Is practically impossible with a ma
cadam street, first because Jts nature
Is absorption, and secondly fnom the
reason chat it will not pack, j .
In building Macadam streets the idea
Is to pack down crushed rock with a
flller-of sereenlnaB -or- sanil that
wUl resist traffic It Is alwaya neces
sary to bring the crown to the center
line of the etreet and if the crown is
set low the macadam will not resist
the water a particle; if it is placed too
nign k win anve the traffic to the
ridge , and the street will be cut - to
pieces' by the passing vehicles. This
is one reason why macadam la no good.

The continued efforts of the city
officials to construct permanent fills or
steel bridges , to ' replace the ' present
wooden bridges and the determine
fight by property owners to defeat the
change may result In an attack on dis
trict assessments In the courts.
"Thi district assessment has never
been a settled thing," explained Attor
ney R. Duniway yesterday, "as- none
of, the Improvements which It 1 was
planned to pay for liave oeen com
pieted. : The proposition of erecting a
steel bridge at Marquam gulch came up
and there ; were rumors then that the
property owners, or a number of them,
intended to fight the legality of such
a schema of assessment In the courts.
However, for some reason such action
was not taken,8 and -the more recent
agitation over the Union and Grand
avenue bridgea haa again' brought the
question up for general discussion, and
there 1 every likelihood to believe, in
deed It is practically a certainty, that
the proposed district " assessment will
go" before Judicial tribunal before
the property owners will pay any as
sessment. , :,y.-!. .
"The question Is not an entirely new
one with municipal Improvements, but
it bears such an . unusual significance
here now from the fact that practically
al) of Portland'a large Improvements
under way or considered at the present
time are to be paid for under that
method. Eight or nine big fills, five or
sir steel bridges, large sewer districts
and other propositions are on that pro
gram and the effect of a court decis
ion on the validity of district assess
ment will be of vitab Import to the car
rying through of these schemes.
'The opponents of district assess
ment propose another plan to pay for
all these improvements and that in a
sentence, la to defray the cost of the
betterments by a special levy, exactly
as any other tax levy Is made, upon the
city as a whole, and governed entirely
by the value or amount of property
owned or controlled by the individual.
"This is a much better plan than the
district assessment in my opinion. ' A
district assesment would be all right
if tt could be graded down to a reason
able figure and then the remainder of
the cost paid out of the general fund.
But take such a district aa Is proposed

owned In a restricted district for an
Improvement that is of such general
benefit Again, In cases like the Mar
quam gulch bridge, , it is also unrea
sonable to expect people living miles
away in another direction to pay the
same ta-- or assessment that would be
levied against the property immediately
adjacent to the Improvement, which la
peculiarly and particularly benefited. Be
tween these two . degreea the district
assessment plan haa a- thorny path; and
1 really believe It much more reasonable
and proper to almply defray the cost
of such works by a general levy. Either
do that or pay one-half the cost from
a district assessment and then pay the
other half from the general fund, which
will In effect distribute the expense
among all the taxpayers at large."
Mr. Duniway's statements are' also
expressed .by many others, principally
among those who are prominently fight

and Grand avenue' brldgest It Is taken
as granted that the expenses of contest
ing the proposition In court will be met

A FAMILY ROW
SAYS THE JUDGE
"'On some quiet - day when there Is
no other business on hand I will heal
ths matter," replied Judge Charles B.
Bellinger, in the United States court
yesterday, when Attorney Cecil JL
Bauer asked that contempt proceedings
against Louis Robinson be considered.
"Suit your own pleasure," remarked
the attorney.
T can assure you It shall not be my
pleasure to hear1 such a nasty family
row, aaia tne juage.
Upon several occasions Judge Bel
linger has stated very plainly what he
thinks of the Robinson case. Last May
Louis Robinson,,. a bankrupt, was in
dicted by the grand Jury on the crim
inal charge of secreting property and
money to the extent of 1(76 from his
creditors. On the thlra aay of the trial
Judge Bellinger dismissed the case, de
claring that It was merely a family
row in which relatives were trying to
get each other into the penitentiary.
Attorney Bauer desires at this time to
reopen the case and punish Robinson
lor contempt '
T suppose I am in duty bound to
again listen to this nasty . sauabble."
said the court this morning, "but If
the facts presented are the same as be
fore there can be but one decision from
me." And the Judge repeated: "Thla Is
nothing more than a fight ' between
brothers-in-law, sons-in-law, or some
thing like that" ,
At the time the criminal case was
heard United States Distriot Attorney
