CHICAGO, Feb. 24 (AP)
Frank McErlane, known as Chi
cago's toughest gangster, was
wounded, probably fatally, to
night by three assailants as he lay
on a cot in a hospital room.
McErlane, who entered the
hospital as "Charles Miller, a

assailants as they fled down a fire
escape. McErlane, who was being
treated for bullet wounds in his
leg, was wounded three times in
the firing. One shot entered his
back, another in the right wrist
and a third in the right thigh.
Hospital authorities said his
wounds would probably be fatal.

Plans Started After Meet
ing Effected by Credit
Another effort at organization
of the contractors in Salem Is in
sight as result of a meeting of the
Salem building material dealers'
credit association held last night
at the chamber of commerce. A
large number of contractors were
present at the meeting, and when
the builders' program had been
concluded, this group withdrew to
give the contractors a chance to
talk over organization plans.
The contractors held a brief
session, selecting Fred Erixon
chairman and empowering him to
appoint a committee of three to
formulate plans for organization
and to call a meeting of all con
tractors as soon as they work out
preliminary plans. The committee
is: Henry Carl, Jesse Barham and
H. C. Hummel. Tbe move toward
organization of this group came
following general expressions,
mostly from the building material
dealers, that the contractors will
better their conditions only
through cooperation and organi
zation. George Herron, secretary of the
Portland building material deal
ers' association, and Earl C. Bush
nell, Salem building inspector,
were principal speakers at the
meeting of the local dealers'
group. About 125 men were pres
ent, including building material
dealers, contractors and real es
Herron cited a number of ex
periences in connection with his
17 years' association With the
builders and contractors', situa
tion, and declared that in Port
land most of the financial trouble
has been due primarily to the con
tractors, and especially his negli
gence in getting in , writing his
agreements either with owners or
The financial problem is the
hardest one for the contractor,
and because there is a good deal
of carelessness and mismanage
ment in this respect, the build
ing game will see but a survival
of the fittest, Herron said. "If a
lot of so-called contractors would
work by day even at $6 they
would make more money In the
long run," he avowed.' Every con
tractor ought to try to leam how
to make each job stand on its own
bottom, he asserted, and only

on North Capitol street Monday
night when a delegation repre

enure Hollywood district, called
upon the proprietor and inform- '"
ed him that he was a candidate
The recipient of this honor. P.
M. Gregory, was taken complete
ly by surprise, and his face was
a study of expressions when tbe
spokesman for the group, A. C.
Burk, announced Its mission.
"It sounds like a Joke to me,"
Mr. Gregory finally said, 'bat if
you are in earnest. I think vaa
are making a big mistake. That
is a Job that needs a big man te
fill it." But after some further
discussion, he agreed, to give bts
"We aren't asking you. we're
telling you." he was informed.
Agrees to Run
More objections were raised by
tbe summarily drafted candi
date, but after, earnest parleying
for something like an hour dur
ing whfch the committee stood its
ground resolutely, it was report
ed that Mr. Gregory had agreed
to run. He thus becomes tbe
first avowed candidate for the ex
ecutive office of the city which
will be vacated in January by T.
It was indicated at this con
ference that a major plank in Mr.
Gregory's campaign, which ac
cording to all Indications will be 1
waged strenuously by his Holly
wood friends, will be municipal
ownership of the water utility.
Leads In Campaign
The Hollywood community
club, of which Mr. Gregory is pre
sident, was the first organization
to announce itself as favoricar
purchase of the water utility by
the city, and at its last meeting
the club took steps looking to
ward a consummation of that pur
post, when it votedto circulate in
itiative petitions for a repeal ef
the present clause In the char
ter providing machinery for suel"
a purchase. The plan was to pp
mit procedure under the less com
plicated state law.
Since that decision as reach
ed, members of the committee ap
pointed to sorry out the proposal
have talked it over and have
about reached the conclusion that
it will be Just as well to pro
ceed with a direct initiative pe
tition asking a vote on the ques
tion of municipal ownership, it
was learned Monday. Another .
proposal has been to circulate pe
titions for both purposes simul
taneously. No chance in the plan will be .
decided upon, members of the
committee said, until legal ad
vice is obtained on the subject. A
question has been raised as to
whether an Initiative measure to
repeal the clause in the charter
at issue, could be gotten cn tt.e
ballot for the May election.
Despite the modesty which Mr.
Gregory betrayed when confront
ed with the idea of aspiring to
rthe city's highest office, he ha '
had some experience as a pubrie
official, having been a member'
of the school board in 1925 and
