"If you want to talk like that you will please go outside.

"Tour res ignation Is accepted, Mr. Kerrigan." The majror declared that an attempt would be made to unravel the entan glement.

There is something be- ' neath all this snd it msy come out. , The .committee are at work on the matter now. The fact that the de tectives made a fake report, to Captain Bruin: that they attempted to get Mrs. Kuhn to put up the reward and attempt- i ed to get her to sign a John Doe war rant which- would lead to the arrest of her own son looks suspicious to me." .

A number ' of large shippers who -were Interviewed this morning expressed tha oninlon thst the charge of IS would be unt isonably high. . 1'letoher Linn of the Oregon Furniture company aald that ha had found thia to ba the, general Im pression, although ha is personally in clined to the belief that a 16. charge will impose no particular burden on the shlDDlns Interests, v "The majority of the shippers think that a switching charge of S Is exces sive and they believe that the maximum should not be over $,", said Mr. Linn. "That la tha general opinion- among tha Booth-Portland shippers.-The -experKi ence of our company haa been, however, that any switching charge la absorbed In the freight charges of the road ovor which tha goods are shipped, so that It does not make much dlfturerwe to the Shipper whether the charge is II or ." Representatives of .tha Luckel, King A Cake Boap company, tha Portland Lum ber company, Weber Brothers' tsnnery nd ' ether South- Portland manufactur ing concerns expressed themselves a of tha opinion that the II charge would be excessive. It has been pointed out. that even though the switching charge . of i should not be excessive st tills time, it should not be Imposed for the term t 21 years. The 'proposal" nas"DPcmnnde- that provision snoum ds maae in in. ordinances for a revision of the charge every Ave years.

This expression shows that the mayor la not pleased with tha franchise which the city council pioposea granting to the United Hallways company, which wlU give them control of the traflle over Front street, and that If - it Is passed ha 'will veto the measure when It comes to him. , - '.There may" bebther' Jokwa In that franchise." continued he.

It Is understood that tha decision of the mayor will be supported ' by tha members of the ohamber, of -commerce and board- of - trade who. remonstrated to tha council against granting any one company control over the Front street road, and who favor the munteipai eon troi of. such a line.
