Journal Called Attention.
Attention waa called to tha ahortage
in tha Increase of the school census
taken last February over 1906-6 by Tbe
Journal, June ts. By figures turned out
ot ths - school . clerk's office It was
shown that the Increase in tha enroll
ment In the city schools was over 140
fer cent greater than the increase In
he achool population. Thla percentage
greatly amased the city school authnrl
tlee when it waa considered that the
general proportion- of the enrollment to
the population la but 70 per cent.
Several of the school directors, ware
seriously considering recount, but it
was believed it would be too late in the
?ear to complete another eenaua in time
or the county superintendence appor
tionment of achool money.
The increase in the first report made
by Clerk Allen of !.ia children of
achool age in the diatrlct was aa in
crease of . 71 over l0-. Tha in
crease In the enrollment In tha schools
In tha aama period was 1,18 pupils.
Since the 1906-4 eenaua waa taken five
new districts have been annexed by
fortland independent school district No,
Vpun this showing the school au
thorities could see that aomethlng was
wrong and that the increase in the
school population should number some
4,000 or t.000 pupils. .

Proposed! Measure Has Been
Prepared With Great Care
by City Attorney Kavan
- augb and Council; Seems
y Fatorable to Its .Passage'
' An ordinance broad enough In Its pro
visions to regulate and curb any, local
organisation or association entered litta
for the restraint ox trad- or ' to 11ml tj
competition haa bean prepared by Cetyy
Attorney J. P. Kavanaugb and, will tm
presented to the city council tomorrow!
afternoon by Councilman Balding.
Tha ordinance has been drafted by the
city attorney at ths requeat of CounclW
man Belding and has grown from, a gmM
era! demand on the part of tho peopls
of Portland for relief from the condi
tions now existing in the city. On every
hand different classes of business have)
banded together for their mutual profit
and for the regulation of the price of
commodities of general consumption,
government of the quantity and quaW
Ity of output and genersJ control of the -market.
Inside tha city, however, and out of
the Jurisdiction of the federal law. suott
combinations hava flourished as are
now maintained In many buslneaa lines, '.
It is to bring these associations to boos:
that the proposed ordinance has been
drafted, bj ths city attorney. - -
" OessoO -Appease Favosable.
From- the expressions already mads
by dllteretit members of the eounull
and the known attitude of o there who
have not made public utterance It IS
probable that tha -council will paaa the
ordinance. The city attorney haa made
xhauatlve Investigation Into the power -of
tha city to enact the law and has
coma to tha conclusion that tha charter
grants the power.
The ordinance as drafted will be. In
troduced tomorrow and will then ba
! riven Into the bands of a committee
or consideration. It will then, accords
ng to routine, some up for final con
sideration and passage at the next meet
ing two weeka from tomorrow. In view,
of the popular demand for tha enact
ment of aome remedial legislation of
thla kind it ia not thought likely thai
the committee will delay Its report on,
the ordtnanoe. The text of the ordi
nance as prepared by ths city attorney!
Is as followa: . ;
: Propoaed Antl-TrasH Ordinance.
"Section 1. That It shall be unlawful
