THE CAPITAL JOURNAL, SALEM, OREGON
Portland, Or., Oct. 7. An ex
position in Portland in 1927
rather than in 1925, to be ft
nanced by a city tax levy of $3,'
000,000 contingent upon a II,
000,000 stock subscription in the
enterprise secured prior to Octo
ber 1, 19!J.
This summarizes the essential
amendments In the fair plans that
wra nresented to the city council
at a meeting; last evening called
n nam nnon aereral measures
that are to be referred to the peo
ple at the general election, me
mirnr and commissioners will take
final action on the exposition reso
lution at a meeting called lor mis
morning at 10 o'clock. Its saop-
tion is assured.
The reason for the postpone
ment nf the date of the exposition
and the date when the stock sub
scription must be completed was
clearly stated by Mayor Baker.
Tf deTelons that the managing
committee of the proposed exposi
tion xfter a careful analysis of
conditions, came to the conclusion
that It would be impossible to se
izure the million dollar stock sub
scription to the enterprise by De
cember 20 of this year, which,
would be necessary under the plan
to hold the exposition in 1125.
This conclusion followed a
cursory canvass of sources from
which large subscriptions might
be forthcoming, and without
which large subscriptions the fu
tility of underwriting the requi
site amount within the two
months was apparent.
At the same time full cogni
zance was taken of the obligation
owing the people of the city and
state by the managing committee
to afford them an opportunity of
expressing their opinion on the
project at the November polls.
The amended resolution leaves
the naming of a commission to ad
minister the funds of the exposi
tion, be they authorized by taxa
tion and raised by stock subscrip
tion, to that body. The act as
originally drafted for submission
to the people named Ernest Olm
stead, Edward Cooklnghatp,, John
C. Ainsworth, Ira Powers and
Nathan Strauss as members ot the
commission. i ,,

LIBOR DEMAND, SUPPLY,
ABOUT EQUAL IN SALEM
For the first time In several
weeks the labor supply and de
mand in Salem are about bal
anced, according to Police Judge
Earl Race, In charge ot the muni
cipal employment bureau.
For some time there were not
enough men to take care ot the
demand but recently there nas
been an influx of transients and
these men have taken care of the
surplus. For the remainder of the
winter there probably will be
plenty of men for the work to be
done, Judge Race said this afternoon.
