Request of Ports Committee to
Hasten Work Receives
Immediate Attention,
Early-afitlon upon-the request of the
ports of the Columbia to hasten work
on the proposed north Jetty la expected
to follow the return to this city of
Major James F. Mclndoe of the United
States engineer corps. Major Mclndoe,
who has Just arrived back In Portland
from his vacation,, was at Ills desk to
day and prepared to delve into tha Jetty
problem at once.
"I have not had time to go Into the
details of the ports of the Columbia
committee's request, but will give the
matter immediate consideration." de
clared Major Mclndoe. "As to a report
on conditions at the bar, I am not at
this time ready to give any Information.
Soundings are now belng taken, and
until this work lias been completed,
nothing definite can be given out."
At its recent meeting the ports of the
Columbia committee, headed by Dr. Al
fred Kinney of Astoria, decided to ask
for a supplemental report on the pro
posed construction of the north Jetty.
The need of hastening the work was
dwelt uron forcibly by prominent men
present, among them being T. B. Wil
cox, ex-United States Senator Jonathan
Bourne and J. N. Teal. It ws their
opinion that no time should be lost and
no reasonable expense spared in rush
ing completion of the Jetty.
The chairman, Dr. Kinney, named a
committee, of which Jonathan Bourne
U chairman, to take the matter up with
tho govtrnn-.ent Off Iclals. It la desired
to have double .shift crews work day
and nlglft on the Jetty. The question
of procuring a sufficient quantity of
rock waa discussed. It was atated that
the government could handle 8000 tuns
of stone a day If that quantity was
An additional duty of the new com
mittee is to ascertain all the facta re
garding rock deliveries.
Chairman Bourne is at present out
of the city. Upon his return a meeting
of tho committee will likely be called.
Heir to Late Sylvester Pen
nnver Estate Loses on Re
valuation of Property.
The Inheritance tax to be paid by
Annie Russell, granddaughter of Gov
ernor Sylvester Pennoyer, who died
several years ago, and his wife, Mary
A. Pennoyer. was raised $1125 aa the
result of an order muUe yesterday by
Circuit Judge Cleeton.' ansa Kusseu re
ceived from her grandmother's estate
the Quarter block at Tenth and Morn
son street which forms ia quarter of
the property occupied By the Olds,
Wortinan & King store. Judge Cleeton
ordured that the value of this prop
erty be made $200,000.
Under the flrat appraisal this prop
erty waa valued at $87,600. On the ob
jection of Deputy Htate Treasurer Ryan
the property was reappiaiaed at lllil,-
bov. still rurtner objection uy Mr.
Ryan resulted in two reports, one that
under the lease now in force the value
la $112,600, and the other that, leaving
the lease out of consideration, tha prop
erty Is worth $250,000 and the building
$126,000. On the date of the lease the
property .was valued at. $160,000.
under tne terms of tne lease tne
quarter block was leased for $375 a
month for the flrat five years after Feb
ruary 15, 1907, the date of the lease,
and $62.50 a month more each succeed
ing five years until during the last five
years of the 60 year lease it produces an
Income of $837.50 av month.
This lease Attorney W, M. Gregory,
representing Miss Russell, -contends de
creases the value of the property during
its life. Mr. Ryan contended that It
does not decrease the value and set his
valuation of the property at $250,000,
and of the quarter of the building, which
reverie to Miss Russell when the lease
expires, at $50,000.;
Juuge Cleeton held that the lease af
fected the value to a certain extent, but
that $100,000 would be a Just valuation.
Attorney Gregory will probably appeal
from Judge Cleeton'a decision.
Under the original valuation of $37,-
600, Miss Russell would have paid $885
n taxea, aa she waa also 'left a lot In
Meade s addition valued at $16,000. Un
der . the new valuation, the tax will
amount to $2110. Miss Russell will, as
provided by law, be exempted from pay-
ng a tax on $6000 on the inheritance,
and will pay a 1 per cent tax on the

Heads of all the railroads centering in
Portland have received invitations from
J. W. Coon, assistant to the general
manager of the Baltimore it Ohio rail
road, to be represented at the meeting
of the American Railway Safety asso
ciation, which was organized June 9.
Mr. Coon is chairman of the member
ship committee of the association.
Most of the railroads are pushing tho
"safety first" movement, but until this
, summer there had been no concerted
jilan involving all the roads. About ten
of the larger lines are already enrolled
and the association is desirous that all
others ally themselves.
The association will meet at Chicago,
September 22, for a more permanent or
ganization. President J. H. Young of
the 3. P. & 8. has referred the action
of his line to General Claim lm n v
Relf, who has called a meeting of the
safety committee, which' may take ac
tion on Joining the movement.
Whether Dr not there can he a "$2
ury in the municipal court is a ques-
Ion taken under, advisement this morn
ing by Judge Stevenson.
f he "case la oner -tn which Attorney
John Jeffrey appeared for a street
speaker recently arrested, demanded a
ury and was acquitted.
The municipal court code provides
'that a Jury In this court shall consist
of alx men, for which the defendant
shall pay $6 as a Jury fee before the
case Is heard." It has been the custom,
however, to agree upon a amaller num
ber than six, but the $ Jury fee is
always required.
Attorney Jeffrey and Assistant City
Attorney Stadter agreed to hear tha
case with two Jurors, so Attorney Jef
frey wants the city to return $4, which
was unused as a Jury fee.
