that the city ahould establish a system

: I T. QllUIand. proprietor of the
Union laundry, took the stand In order
to explain how his gaa bills were lower
during 104 and 10S than for tha two
years brevlous. He - denied that this

and said It waa aue to tne raei mat ne
had been using electricity to heat his
Irons for tha past two years In place
of gas. - This lessened his consumption

f "Suppressed important facts and had
given the gross amount or nis bins in-
stead of the net, then took the stand in
order to make an explanation. He at
tempted to Justify the testimony he had
originally given, but was obliged to ad
mltr that he had withheld important
- facts. Mr. Teal was evidently of the
opinion that Toomey is a chronlo fault

Dole Qooe Witness.
' .. W. 8. Dole, superintendent of the gas
company, proved an Important witness.
Ha Is a graduate of Cornell and is
civil engineer. In response to tbs ques
' tlons of Mr. Teat the witness said that
he had been connected with a number of
lartj gss companies In Chicago, New
Tork and Han Francisco, before coming
to Portland. His testimony dealt largely
with the cost of making gas In Portland
and Its quality. .-
The cost of manufacturing gas In
8an Francisco, exclusive of depreciation,
is - about (9 cents per 1,000 feet, said
Dole. ' Thar la the present cost to the
Independent Oss company and the cost
Jo the Ban Francisco Gas company last
year waa ft cents. The candle power
f the Independent , company's gas is
21 and that of the rival Company's Is 1.
The candle power of the gas supplied in
Portland la 11. The quality of the gas
as that of the gap made by the Inde
pendent company or nan Francisco.
"Last winter 'we carried as high ss
inches pressure." continued Superin
tendent Dole.:.!The" pressure ranged
from-that la IVj Inches. .Now the mul.
mum is i on the east side and t on
tbs west side. For Welsbaoh. burners
or 'gss stoves there must be at least
I inches-pressure. In-the oiitsklrU-Qf
the .city greater pressure Is required.
The-pressure we use certainly, would
not be considered excessive. In , N
Tork the pressure Is t Inches. In Chi
cago It Is 18 Inches and In Ban Fraif
elsoo the eld company usee a preeeura
of ; w or t Inches. The - - eon
sumsr can always regulate .the pressure
by means of the atop cock at the meter
or by the -valves of his gss stove. It
Is the gas 'company's Interest to keep
the pressurs as low as possible in, order
to avoid leakage.
"Are mafiy complaints made to- you
oa account of . too high Treasurer'
"More complaints,' by at least to to f.
are made, on account of low pressure,!"
replied the witness.
' Superintendent Dole gave much Im
portant Information relative - to the
number of consumers per mile In Port
land and other cities, the average con
sumption per meter and the cost of coal

"The quality of the gaa during the
past five or - six months has 4een un
even," said Dole, ."because we are mak
ing many change! and Improvements at
the works. - At the same time there has
been a great Increase in consumption.
The inequalities have been unavoidable
while these improvementeorere going
on." ' -.
Judge McGinn strove to lessen the
force of Pole's testimony and Indulged
in soma sarcaatla comment, but the
witness proved well able to hold his
own. Judge McGinn waa especially
anxious to know about some chemical

Dole testified that without a decided

"I have never known of another city
where so many voluntary reductions in
the price of gas have been made In the
same length of time." said Dole. -
When, at the: conclusion of Doles
testimony, Mr. Teal Invited the- mem
bers efjghe gaa company to visit 'the
company's office in 'order to see for
themselves the resats obtained from
different burners. Judge McGinn en
tered a -protest: v". ' -j.--.-t.-.., - -
--That's a mere dress parade," he
After a sharp tilt between the at
torneys the committee adjourned and
went In a body, to the gas company's
office, . .
The exhibition of gas burners proved
to be of considerable Interest. One of
the gss company's employes showed the
respective merits of the different burn
ers. The company advocates tha use
or tne weisbach burner, which con
aumea only 4 feet per hour and gives
a light of 200 candle-power? An imi
tation of tha Welsbech- burner la being
sold, but It- gives a much poorer light,
the candle power being only (0 or TO.
A burner which has found extenslvs
sale Is known as he "Jumbo." Agsnts
nananng it represent mat nses only
1 feet of gas an hour, but when tested
at the gas company's plant It waa found
to consume 14 feet per hour. ..-.iL
Next week the committee will visit
the gas company s plant and make
complete investigation of the works.
They will slso endeavor to form an es
timate of the value of the plant. One

Chartering a' ship to load new-crop
grain for Europe so far In advance of
the harvest season is a - long chance
which was taken yesterday by a local
exporting firm. The names of the ship
or firm will not ,be disclosed for a
few days. - It Is explained, however,
that the vessel is a French bark and
was taken at the union rate of "is d-
This is the first craft to be chartered
on the Paclflo coast this year to trans
port a cargo of wheat, still to be
grown and harvested, to the European
markets. The vessel will leave Ham
burg in a few days, for Portland with
a cargo of cement. - She la axpeoted to
arrive the latter part of August.

cargo from Portland la taken as. evi
dence that the ewners do not Intend
to make the fight against this port
with; such vehemence aa characterised
their actions last season. If they show,
no. discrimination against this port It:
Is the general opinion' among thoss who
keep In touch with shipping affairs that
more cargoes of grain will be dispatched
foreign from the Columbia river In the
coming season than from all of -the
ports of the Puget sound. - Even when
the owners were fighting Portland shs
made equally as good a Showing as
her northern, neighbors.
" This first shows that the "Uporlert
are fully convinced that the price of
wheat is not going to advance. If it
should, the firm securing the vessel
several months before the cargo is
brought to tidewater would be
heavy loser by the transaction. In the
event that the price of wheat would
get up to tl a bushel, for Instance, and
the Liverpool quotations remain un
changed, the early venture would cost
them several thousand dollars. In years
past some of the exporters have lost
heavily by engaging tonnage so early
in the season.

when she waa chartered to load floor at

number of other steamers would be
chartered for the same business, but so
far there has been none. Exporters do
not believe there wlU 'be any beavy

later in the season. This will be the
first cargo aent from the Willamette
