League to Discuss
Plans to Enforce
. Prohibition Statute
The Anti-Saloon league will hold a
conference at the Y. M. . A. next week
to discuss the enforcement of the pro
hibition law,fthe purpose being to rein
force public sentiment for a strict ob
servance of the law.
It Js probable that at this time the
subject of Oregon's' state legislature
changing the present state prohibition
law to conform strictly with the Vol
stead national act will be discussed.
Sheriff T. M. Hurlbuift is ot the opin
ion that this change should be made,
thijs eliminating' points , of confusion,
while .District Attorney Evans says he
is not certain that such a change should
be made at this time. -
Sheriff Hurlburt points out that the
Oregon law permits the use . of alcohol
for jmedical, sacramental and scientific
purposes, but makes no provision as to
how it may be obtained, while the Vol
stead act not only authorizes the uses,
mentioned, but provides the method of
getting the liquor. '

Reductions amounting to 25 per
cent In the price of furniture may
be looked for following January
purchases by retailers, according to
John L. Young of Cleveland, Ohio,
president of the j Retail Furniture
Dealers Association of the United
States. New patterns to be offered
by manufacturers: will combine sim
plicity, quality and efficiency of
workmanship in such a degree as
to make possible a, lewer price to the
retailer and consumer. Young said.
Young arrived from the East Tuesday
to attend a meeting of the Oregon Retail
Furniture Dealers' association to be held
tonight in the assembly room of the
Portland hotel. He is accompanied by
Douglas White of oan Fraisco, gen
eral manager of the Retair Furniture.
Dealers' Association of California.
Abnormally high prices of furniture
during the past year are attributed by
Young to an increase in the cost of ma
terials amounting to 300 per cent, and
in some instances m 400 per cent, com
pared with the market of 19M. Wages
in furniture factories are approximately
100 per cent higher now than before the
war. he. said, and the tendency has been
toward subnormal j production During
the past few weeks efficiency has been
on the increase in the furniture industry
and the increased output aids in extendi
ing the market and offering.; goods at
lower prices.
President Young is enthusiastic as to
the future of the furniture manufactur
ing business in Portland. "The city has
the best of shipping facilities, both by
rail and water, and the recent increase
in freight rates makes it possible for
Portland manufacturers to compete suc
cessfully with their EasteVn rivals in the
territory west of the Rockies. The an
nual consumption lof furniture In this
territory amounts to between $30,000,000
and $40,000,000 and &t present not over
12 per cent of this volume is being man
ufactured on the Pacific coast"
Young will loavei Thursday for Seat
tle to attend a -meeting of-; the Retail
Furniture Dealers' Association of Wash
ington. Similar organisations in 15
states are included ;in the national association.

j As a means of inducing the city
council to waive Its objection to tile
extension of Terwllliger boulevard
during' the coming year because of
lack of funds, a delegation of 10
members of the Fulton Park Im
provement club agreed at council
session today that the property own
ers take all preliminary steps, to
provide fpr the extension to tlie
city's bouthern boundary. Tbe
agreement , included deeding of the
right of way and a 30 -acre park
site to the city. j
This agreement, it was declared, paves
the way for definite action on the exten

was bad this week. The i prerty own
ers declared the improvement essential.

Buryey of the extension and to visit the
scene in a body, but Mayor Baker Im
pressed the point that the work could
not be done this year, regardless. V
: Benjamin Riesland, who acted as one
of the spokesmen, declared the improve
ment would not benefit the residents in
the district only, but would make of the
"sky line boulevard an attribute to each
cltlsen of Portland." H
The park site of 30 acres ia situated
immediately south of the present termi
nus of the boulevard. i j
