TREE -HEN COMING IN CHERRY TIME out. but how Often Is left to the Janl tors. As a result, large quantities of paper, rags and other Inflammable rub bish is allowed to accumulate that would be dangerous In case fire smarted In the federal building. A passer-by noted the dirty condition of the sidewalk on Yamhill street. He pointed out torn papers, cigar stubs, tobacco auids and dirt" that had evi dently been left to lie on the sidewalk for days without the touch of the Jani tor's broom. In an effort to determine the cause for the filthy conditions about the post- office, Postmaster John W. Minto was asked to state reasons for the apparent lack of service. He said: janitor service Is not as good as I would have It, but the reason for that Is tho low wages paid for the work. One can not expect to get good janitors for $48 a month when stores and halls are par ing $76 and 180 a month for good men. This has beea a particularly ticklish subject with me for some time, and I am doing my best tc improve conditions. 'This is near the end of the fiscal year, and all appropriations are held down to the very lowest point by the department. It is my intention to take the matter up with officials at Wash ington in June, in in effort to get In creases In the pay of the Janitors. At this time J realise that such an effort would be futile. "All of the men employed about the building do their work faithfully, but when I secure a good man I know that he will not remain long, for he will stay only until he can secure a better position with some firm or in a, large public building. "We. have nine men In the employ of the building. Their official titles are: Elevator operator, $70 a month; engineer-fireman, $70 a" month; fireman-j watchman. $60; night watchman, $60; janitor, $70; three laborers, $45) a month each; charwoman, $22.60 a month. Appropriations Too BmaU. "Their duties are manifold, and re quire ability along their lines Of work. The elevator man has to be an electri cian able to keep the Intricate electrical elevator machinery In repair, attend to the various motors in the building and keep the wiring in good condition. The laborers are the men upon whom fall tho hard work about the building, and at present I have three men who are loyal and hard workers. They are do insr the best they can, but I know that with more money better, service would result. "f think this whole contention about the filthy conditions the building and federal property has been raised by per sons unacquainted with the true condi tions. Never before in the history of the building have the grounds been In such good condition, and but the other day an old and prominent resident of Portland told me that he had never seen the grounds In such good condition or looking so pretty as they do now.

The only relief to own- ers of cemetery lots in preventing the filling up of the cemetery Streets is for them to make complaint against me association and take the matter into the courts. - In the opinion of some of the mem bers of the committee the grading of East Stark street from East Twentieth street eastward would place the street below the burial level of the ceme tery and during the wet season pub lic, health would oe menaced irom seepage. Should the council take steps toward grading East Stark street the burial of remains on the ground adja cent to the! street would probably not be permitted and the result would be a loss to the association. The cost of improvement also would be as sessed against all of the lots not al ready void. City Attorney McNary will address a letter to the council at Its ijext reg ular meeting advising that action be taken on the discussion before the street committee.

Or., June 1. After hav ing completed what its members say Is the most successful and largely at tended meeting In its history the thirty fourth annual session tuT the Oregon State Grange came to a close at a late hour last night, The meeting this year has been attended by men prominent in educational, business, horticultural and political affairs of the state and Its support has been sought in matters af fecting the public welfare. This is said to be in recognition of the Strength it has developed in legislative and other questions and its far-reaching influence. The sessions were religiously attended by all entitled to do so and the order is expected to receive a great impetus from its work .during the past year. ' 8everal delegations were present from various parts of the state soliciting the organisation to form granzes in their communities, among which were Coos nay. He rm is ton and Lne county.

The most important resolution passed at the evening session was one that declared it to be the sense of the grange that the present ballot system should not be changed for the one proposed at the last session of the legislature. At the afternoon session a number of resolutions and recommendations were adopted, among which were: Vorm&ls and Other Things. That a movement be made to bring before the taxpayers of the state the right to say which of the normal schools shall be continued and which abolished. That the state grange condemns the action of the United States government In allowing senators and representatives to distribute free seeds, which are worthless, and used to gain political ad' vantage. That the state grange will oppose any action on the part of, state' officials tending to throw out petitions for the initiative and .referendum on technical ities. TJie resolution introduced by R.
