New Ordinance Introduced
To Comply With all
Legal Quirks '
Part of Testimony Given at
Monday Night Session;
Foes Talk Later
Pinal action' on the proposed
partial vacation of Trade street
was again delayed in the city coun
cil Monday night, this time at the
instigation of the Oregon Palp and
Paper company, which seeks a 41
foot strip of the street for Indu
strial nse.
Aetlng through the ordinance
committee, the mill Interests with
drew the vacation ordinance which
had gone through first and seeend
readings and which was to have
come up for final- passage last
sight.
Walter B. Keyes, representing
the mill, then came before the
council with an explanation that
the legality of the proceedings to
date was in question due to the
fact that testimony had not been
taken before the racatlon ordin
ance was first Introduced.
"The law is not clear on this
point, and I want to be sure that
every step we take is In accord
ance with any court review which
might arise in connection with
the council's action, said Keyes.
He then asked the city solons to
hear witnesses for and against va
cation. Aldermen Ready ,
To Ballot, Word
After more or less protest by
aldermen who declared they were
ready to ballot without delay, a
resolution calling for a hearing on
a new ordinance of vacation, yet
to bo introduced, was carried and
Keyes put Carl W. Helnlein, resi
dent manager of the paper com
pany on the stand.
Heinlein's testimony was to the
effect that the portion of Trade
street desired by the mliL w.as. not
needed by the public and that vir
tually all the traffie on the street
was that originating, with Spauld
ing Logging company, the South
ern Pacific contpany and the Ore
gon Polp and Paper company.
John Bayne, appearing as a
cross-questioner for the remon
straters, fired a battery f ques
tions at Helnlein in which Bayne
aimed to set up rebuttal on Hein
lein's part to his first-made claim
that the street was not needed by
the public
Various councilmen participated
in the examination of Helnlein,
asking whether or not the paper
mill would handle the cinders If
the street was vacated, where the
autos would be parked 'n event of
vacation and the company's pos
sible expansion south of its own
property Instead of on Trade
street.
Opponents not
Ready to Testify
Bayne was asked if he was
ready to put on his witnesses.

CHICAGO, Sept. 15. (AP)
As sequel to what they believed
the solution of the murder of Al
fred "Jake" LIngle, Chicago Tri
bune reporter, Chicago, Indiana,
and Kentucky police tonight were
scouring three states tor Ted
Geisking, gangster, hijacker and
suspected hired assassin. .
That Geisking has been sought
as the slayer of LIngle was learn
ed last night after a sheriff and
posse battled four liquor hijackers
near London, Ky., and took into
cupstody three men. The fourth,
believed to be Geisking, shot it
out with, the officers and escaned.
They said their shots wounded
him.
First objectives of the searchers
tonight were two women who may
know where Geising would hide.
He operated In Indiana and Ken
tucky. There was a possibility he
may have fled into the hills of
Tennessee.
Chief Investigator Patrick
Roche of the state's attorney's of
fice refused to say today whether
Geisking was known by him to be
the slayer of the newspaperman,
but it was learned he dispatched
Sergeant George Williams of his
staff to London.
Claim he Helped
Kill Znta Also
Local newspapers said Geisking
was hired by the late Jack Zuta
of the George "Bugs" Moran gang,
to kill LIngle because the latter
had insisted upon too large a cut
for police protection of a gambling
establishment,
The papers said further that
Geisking participated in the mur
der of Zuta because the latter fail
ed to pay the second halt of the
810,000 promised for the LIngle
slaying; and that Geisking kill
ed William Simons, former board
of trade member, at Kentland,
Ind., through mistaken identity
when he sought a gangster marked
for death by Zuta. Simons' death
was listed as suicide though his
family insisted he had been slain.
Difficulties which developed
over hiring of both union and
non-union labor on the North
Commercial street bridge project
have been ironed out and Mon
day morning 20 union men went
to work on the joE." Ten more
union laborers are scheduled to
begin work this morning, says
Frank .Marshall, business agent
for the union council, who has
handled negotiations.
Labor men objected early In
the work to fact that the con
tractor, J. R. Hugh of Portland,
hired both union and non-union
men, Including some whose
homes were not in Salem. When
negotiations failed to differ the
situation the union employes
quit the Job, this about a week
ago. , Although the contractor
objected when the union men
walked out, he eventually agreed
to put on all union laborers.
Before the settlement, a num
ber of men, supplied largely
through the employment bureau,
worked at a dollar under the
union wages.
With 30 men on this job, a
dozen working at construction
on the fairgrounds and a few
other jobs in sight, the labor
situation for the union Is show
ing the brightest side since the
depression set In, says Marshall.

Advisory Committee Named
By Stockholders Will
Meet Directors
New Stock Issue Proposed
Jo Absorb old and to
Add New Capital
With 80 stockholders present
but with less than 25 per cent
of the subscribed stock repre
sented, the owners of the Oregon
Linen mills held their first for
mal meeting In two years yester
day afternoon in the chamber of
commerce rooms.
Lacking a quorum, the sole
action of the group the ap
pointment of an advisory com
mittee to meet with the direct
ors lacked official sanction but
according to Thomas Kay, presi
dent of the company, the stock
holders' represented the major
ity of owners and their wishes
would be fully recognized.
T. M. Hicks, John W. Mayor
of Stayton, and Fred Thlelsen
were named as an advisory
group to consult regarding reor
ganization of the mill with1 the
board of directors.
Hope that a reorganization of
the mill would be followed by
the introduction of needed
working capital into the busi
ness wf given by John C.
Veatch, representing a f roup of
Portland capitalists Interested in
the project.
Reorganization
Proposal Made
Veatch said his principals had
agreed that a new organization
might be effected, stock in
which could be secured by the
Oregon Linen mill stockholders
by an exchange of certificates,
the new stock being issued in
the amount that the stockholder
has equity In the new worth of
the old company. A rough esti
mate showed that the present
net worth of the company repre
sented 50 cents for every dollar
of capital stock.
When 50 or more per cent of
the present stockholders agreed
to the formation of such a new
company, control of the present
organization would pass to the
new group, Veatch said.
This move would probably be
followed, Veatch declared, by the
investment of Portland funds In
securities of the company, either
notes or bonds. This money
would be used for badly needed
working capital.
Status Outlined
By President Kay
President Kay had read a fi
nancial statement of the mill
prepared last month by certified
public accountants showing the
net loss in five years operations
1100,000 to which $60,000 de
preciation is to be added.
Unfunded liabilities of the
company now amount to $31,000

NEWPORT. R. I., Sept. 15
(AP)--Harold 8. Vanderbilfs
thoroughbred of the seas. Enter
prise, sailing a winning race all
the way, scored its second
straight victory oyer Shamrock
V today in smashing style and
dealt what looked like a knockout
blow to the lingering hopes of
Sir Thomas Lipton's challenger in
the classic yachting duel for the
America's cup.
Better weather, brisker breezes,
a ton less ballast and a 30-mile
triangular ocean course failed to
change the ill luck of the green
bodied British sloop. It was
beaten not only by a much wider
margin than in the opening leeward-windward
race but given'a
spanking lesson in sailing skill by
thetrim, speedy American defen
der. Victory Margin
Over two Miles
The Enterprise crossed the
finish line with an advantage of
nine minutes, 34 seconds. She
was approximately two and a
quarter miles ahead of the chal
lenger as a heavy fog rolled in
to enshroude the finish of the
badly beaten Lipton sloop.
The winner's elapsed time was
four hours, 44 seconds for the
triangular chase which began
with a ten-mile beat to windward
south west from the starting
mark, nine miles southeast of
Brenton reef lightship; had for
its interlude . a broad ten mile
reach, southeast by east and a
Spinnaker run, north by half
east for the concluding ten miles.
The challenger's elapsed time was
four hours, 10 minutes, 18 .sec

Approved;

Temporary vacation of 'State

Five Million Dollar Plan
May Face Voters in
November
Passed for first and second
readings at the city council meet
ing Monday night, an ordinance
bill providing for a 15,000.000
bond issue, which will be the first
step toward municipal operation
of a power and lighting plant in
Salem, will come up for final coun
cil action at a special meeting
called for next Friday night. If
the city solons agree to this final
action, a charter amendment,
which is provided by the proposed
ordinance, will be voted upon by
the people in November.
The purpose of the amendment
is to authorize the city to enter
into the business of manufactur
ing electrical energy as a munici
pal enterprise. It will give author
ity to the city lor acquiring both
water rights and property.
Will Not Create
Lien on Property
Election of fivr members form

plant when completed will be pro
vided by this addition to the char
ter. This commission may be con
solidated with the city warte com
mission if the council deems it
desirable.
Security pledge for the $5,
000,000 worth of utility, bonds
wolud consist of the property. to
be acquired, the plant to be con
structed and the revenues from the
operation of the enterprise. The
bonds wolud contain a clause pre
venting their const" iting a lien
on taxes.
Further provisions give the city,
at Its option, authority to issue as
much as $20,000 general-obligation
bonds to put the power pro
gram into effect. It is understood
that these bonds would be taken
care of by the plant revenues. This
amount would be to take up emer

chafed and eyes inflamed, they
held the plane on its course as
long as possible, and then turned
back, determined to try again.
On landing, Bromley said his
plane had flown 2400 miles in
the nearly twenty-five hours
aloft. He said his fuel was suf
ficient to have carried him to
Dutch harbor, the Aluetian
chain of islands, extending thou
sands of miles from Alaska's
mainland.
Whether a landing was possi
ble at Dutch harbor for the land
plane was doubtful; the broken
fuel pipe threatened disaster
over broad seas. But perhaps
the most impelling reason of all
for turning back to Japan wee
the desire to be the first men to
make a non-stop airplane flight
from the land of the ming sua
to the western rim of America.
