Professional Market

New' York, July 23. The Evening
Sun financial review today said:
The stock market today degenerated
for the most part into a professional
scalping affair. Fluctuations, outside
of a few stocks subject to special in
fluences, were meaningless.
The outstanding ifeiaturV.. if there
was any, was the thin iDnying power,
a natural development, in view of the
tightness of the money market and
the apprehension regarding taxation
Dealings throughout the late trading
lacked significance and the market con
tinned dull. United States Steel at

that figure was 1 points below Mon

Supreme Court Affirms Legal
ity of Action of Public
. Service Commission
Portland 's six -cent street car fare was
upheld today by an opinion handed
down, by the supreme court. , The opin
ion was written by Justice Burnett.
The court held that the power once
possessed by the city of Portland to
fix rates in franchises was given the
city by the state, and since then it has
been withdrawn by the sate and placed
in the public service commission. As a
consequence the commission has author
ity to change the rates in a franchise
and the question of impairment of a
contract is noj involved.
The decision affects every town or
city iu the state which may he at
tempting to hold public service utili
ties to the rates fixed in their franch
ises. In a synopsis of the court's decision,
Justice Burnett says:
"The contention of the city in tho
main is that the franchise granted by
its ordinance to the Portland Railway,
Light & Power company constituted a
contract between it and the company,
the obligation of which coud not be im
paired by the action of the'public ser
vice commission. The court holds in
substance that the city could not h;re
granted such a franchise unless the pow
er to do so had been delegated to it by
the riuht to maintain tho railway in the
city the municipality acted as a gov
ernmental agency of the state and real
ly entered into the arrangement on be
half of the state; that the latter, hav
ing delegated authority to the city and
and inado an agent of the city for the
purpose in question, could rightfully re
voke that agency and establish another;
that by the enactment of the public ser
vice law it had created such a new
agency in the form of the publie ser
vie oinmission, giving it plenary pow
er in all such matters.
'So far as it affects tho Portland
charter, it is true that the constitution
denies to tho legislative assembly the
power to enact or amend any particular
charter oy a special law, but, as held
in tha case of Rose against tho Port of
Portland, it is competent for that body
to pass a general law which is para
mount in authority over all city char
ers, and this is what happened when it
passed the general public service law
which was approved by the people on
tne referendum.
"Tho case of the city is not aided
by the fast that it sought to amend its
charter by the initiative process after
tho passage of the publie service legis
lation so as to assume for itself within
the territory substantially all tho pow
ers of the publie service comnii3sion.
Tho reason for this is that the light
to fix fares and and freights is a branch
of the state's legislative prerogative
and is not merely a local issue affecting
any particular city or town and that
the initiative and referendum powers
aro reserved to legal voters of cities and
towns only as to local, special and mu
nicipal legislation. The icntiro question
of regulating publie service corporations
in their charges for their services to
the puulic is referable to the authority
of the state on such Bubjeets. The
wholo public, and not any local munici
pality, is affected by this power and no
city or town can so amend its charter
as to arrogate to itself powers primari
ly resident in the state, without the
consent of the latter. Whatever may
be said of the franchiso of tho com
pany, whether it bo an agreement be
tween contracting parties or a piece of
legislation, it exists suhiect to the ever
present police power of the state so to
regulate it that iu its relation to the pub
Kc the company shall render reasonable
services and be entitled to a reasonable
remuneration therefor.
"The conclusion is that by the gener
al law relating to public service cor
porations the state had a right to, and
did, in effect, withdraw from tho city
of Portland the agency authorizing it to
grant a franchise to, or enter into a con
tract with the company for a five-cent
fare, and appointed another agency, the
public service commission, with full pow
er to act for the state, and that to this
new agency the company had amilied
for a change in the agreement, with the
result tnat the parties to the contract
the company on one side and the state,
represented by its public service com
mission, on the other, mutually agreed
to change thefranchise or contract so
as to allow tha company to charge six
cents instead of five. Without regard
to what might be "aid if either party
to the contract or franchise, without
the consent of the other, should attempt
to change it, cither by legislation or
otherwise, the impairment of the obliga
tion of the agreement is not involved.
it is a case where those who made the
contract had mutually agreed to its

occasion and the entertainment commit
tee will see that It is properly taken
care of."
A.. A. Lee, chairman of the committee
on speakers, says: "The dedicatory ad
dress of the moning will be delivereti
by Justice George H. Burnett. The two
other speakers of the day will be men
of prominence, befitting such an occa
sion, but the committee is not as yet
ready to announce their names."

committee on concessions, says: "Our
committee has already nudo arrange
moms for a merry-go-round in order
that the children may enjoy the day.
There will bo a dancing pavillion, for

and several concessions for the serv
ing of ice cream. "

Hearst Is Candidate
For Primary Nomination
Saratoga, N. Y., July 23. William
Randolph Hearst, New York publisher,
reiterated today through his represent
ative, Lawrence J. O'Reilly, that he is
in the lace for the democratic nomina
tion for governor. This wa3 stated to
day aa democats prepared to open their
state convention here.
A canvass of delegates from the up
state counties showed only one, Albany
for tho New York publisher.
The New York City delegation was
almost solid'for Hearst,
Both Mayor Harry C Walker ot
Binghamton and Alfred E. Smith ot
New York have many supporters Smith
as yet had notj announced his inten
tions. Many delegates believed James W.
Gerard, former ambassador to Germany
had been definitely removed from con
sideration with the avowed intention
of Hearst to run.
William Church Osborn is still in the
race, his managers declared, but his
name will not be before the conven
tion. Ho will depend on the primaries,
without endorsement.
Indications early today were that a
plank would be inserted in- tho plat
form calling for a referendum on tho
question of ratifying tho federal pro
hibition amendment. It also is probable
there will .be a plank favoring either
government or municipal ownership of
public utilities.
The upstate delegates will meet to
night and endeavor to agree on somo
man they aH will endorse.
I .W. W, Recommended

Chicago, July 23. The I. W. W. to

one of the I. W. W. leaders on trial
here, gave his " testimonial" from tho
witness stand in federal court,
and Innriicd to read their literature.
Smith declared he was illiterate until
he became interested in the f. W. V.
"It cured me of booze, too," he
said. "I know other fellows it cured,
Smith was one of the defenw wit

Three automobile wheels and tires
were stolen lust evening from machines
at the Chautauqua grounds. Dr. E. E.

Later Ralph Bailey, living on rural

attended the Chautauqua lecture and
Mrs. Fred Lamport the loss of the
extra wheel and tire carried on her
car. All wheel were of the standard

Tho former offer was $400,000. This
was not given serious consideration by
the directors of the irrigation district.
They are disposed, however, to analyse
the new offer and ascertain the value
of existing canals and works to the
proposed project, according to Mr.

Dr. Steiner, superintendent of the
Oregon state hospital, reports that the
earth beneath the big water tank at
the asylum has ounk eight or 10 feet,
and he was in today, to get the state
engineer to make an investigation to
see what should be done to protect the
tank. It may be, he says, that the pump
lias drained a lake about SO feet be
neath the surface and that is tne
cause of the earth's settling.
