his automobile which was parked

dently met him on the street in
the city yesterday afternoon and
turned him over to Juetlce court.
He was lodged in the county jail.

"Insistent rumors, current here for

tin in Linn county was sponsored
by the Hfll system was substan
tiated today when formal request
or the Oregon Electric railawy to
be substituted as applicant for the
necessary certificate of conven
ience and necessity was filed with
the Interstate commerce commis
sion in Washington. D. C.
It was stated here by W. F. Tur
gor nreident of the Oregon Elec

the project as of April 1. Work on
the new line, which 13 to tap the
" huge timber Btands in eastern Linn
county, will be pushed rapidl
ahead. Turner said, once the cer
tificate Is obtained from the inter
state commission.
The project already outlined
embraces 68.8 miles of road, a
good portion of which will be of
standard)' construction, between Al
bany and Foster and Cascadia,
Ore., by way of Lebanon and Sweet
Home. Four branches have been
projected; and a fifth surveyed:
The main line as mapped by the
surveyors cost about jl. 000, 000
and the branch lines probabl)
$750,000 more. The length of the
road may not be as great as the
line now surveyed however. Be
tween Albany and Lebanon the
new line would closely parallel an
existing Southern racific line. No
one familiar with such affairs
would be greatly surprised were
the interstate commerce commis
sion dictate that construction be
gin at Lebanon Instead of Albany.
Application of the logging road
company for permission to build
was filed with the state and inter
state commissions on February 28.
The timber to be directly tapped
exceeds 20.000.000,000 feet, and
out great extension of lines as
still more-might be bed. wit fa

Then if the cnarter is placed on
the ballot, the public will have SO
days in which to become familiar
with it. That might be consider
ed sufficient time, but in view of
the misconceptions that have al
ready arisen, it is certainly none
too much.
Safeguards Ample
It is reported, for instance, that
the city manager would have al
most autocratic power; for in
stance, to fixe the salaries of sub
ordinate employes. This is not
true; the charter says that the
manager shall fix these salaries,
subject to the approval of the
As a matter of fact, the mana
ger's powers are in every way
safeguarded against abuse; es
pecially in the provision that he
shall be chosen for no definite
period, but may be removed by
the vote of three members of the
council at any time. He is en
titled to a hearing if removed, but
the council's subsequent decision
is final.
Prejmlice Observed
In this, respect the charter can
scarcely be criticized adversely,
but there to certain to be some
prejudice against entrusting the
entire business of the' city to one
officer, and a thorough campaign
of education will be necessary to
remove this objection, if it ever is
removed. The manager plan works
admirably in nearly every case
where it is adopted; but Salem
people will have to be convinced
of this, and they will not be con
vinced, over night.
One other objection to placing
the charter revision ou 4he ballot
is the question that has been
raised as to the legality of the fil
ing 30 days before the election.
This question may presumably be
settled by securing competent
legal opinion, but that should be
done before the situation becomes
hopelessly involved.
