it ts natural for youngsters to have
a desire to hunt and many of them

daily reported with a boy and a gun
as principals Is ample proof that it
Is a dangerous combination.

not already done so, that they are
doing absolutely the proper act and

There is a little community over In
the extreme eastern part of the state
that is trying hard to find oil, and
If Vale finds oil there will be some
thing doing In the desert.
We remember when Beaumont, Tex-
tlon there In June. .
The Newport Engineering company
was given the contract -for laying the
18-inch main on First street to sup'
ply the city proper. This was one
of the 1 most important propositions
considered as the water supply is
limited, the pressure low and an emer
gency is existing right now. , The work
will be hurried, and at a cost of
about 50 per cent less than the city
can do it for. . The project wlll coBt
$4,052.00 plus $380.
Alll bills except salary accounts
were referred to committees to be
enacted on at the next meeting.
The curfew ordinance was given
final passage. From October ' to
March, children under sixteen must
be off the streets unless properly
escorted, at 8 o'clock in the evening,
and from March to October at .nine
The wire fence ordinance was also
read a third time and passed. It pro
hibits wire fences in the city limits,
and requires city engineer permits for
any sort of wire fence.
A deed to the right-of-way on the
new Island City cutoff was presented
to the city and a warrant order drawn
for $385, to pay the land up in full.
A resolution was introduced which
divides the city Into sewer districts
similar to Improvement districts now
existing. Under this provision the dis-t
tricts can build sewers the same as
pavement Is now laid and sidewalks
built. This was referred to commit
Two weeks hence the people of

improvements ordered for that street.
The pest house committee was grant
ed an extension of time.
Reports of the different depart
ments were submitted and the essence
of them read to the council, after
which all were ordered filed. It was
interesting to know that 22 dogs have
had license fee paid, which all agreed
The Fly Nuisance. -"When
Mayor Meyers called the at
tention of the council to the garbage
regulations and asked that steps be
taken to have garbage cans placed
in closed cans because of the ap
proaching' summer, he voiced a senti
ment that will meet with general ap
proval for it is now known to be true
that the house fly spreads disease
with alarming rapidity. Every com
munity waged a war on the fly last
year and the same!,w-ijl bef kept up
this season. " '( -' '.. ' - j

The question of riding bicycles on
sidewalks was up for discussion and
while the council wishes .to ,woTk ho
hardship on men who use .wheels'1 go
ing to and from their work, 'it Is in
tended that indiscriminate riding of
wheels on the sidewalk shall be pro
hibited. , The city attorney will draw
an ordinance on the subject and have
it ready for next meeting. ., .

a city law and should be enforced to
the letter. Some favored raising the
limit from 12 to 20 miles an hour but
the majority seemed opposed tot it,
As the law how stand an auto can
run 12 miles an hour on a .straight
away street and miles In rounding
corners. Also the matter of running
machines without lights was mention
Councilman Monroe called attention
to the annoyance caused by the small
boy's express wagon on sidewalks In
certain parts of the city.
The police department was instruct
ed to see that Tin Can chop houst
was cleaned up and properly handled
The matter of trimming trees was
discussed and it was argued that all
trees within city limits should be
trimmed according to former stipula
tions. Poplar trees in the district to
be paved will likely have to go as
they are Bald to be impediments to the
work, but Box Elders and other shade
trees are -to be saved and the pav
ing done around them.
The committee on moving of foun
tain stated that the task would be
accomplished this week.
La Grande's hauling will probably
be let to the lowest bidder. In this
matter, however, it is quite probable
that bids will be asked for and theBe
bids will be received at a certain
time and opened according to prece
dent which has only been broken a
very few times.
To repair the telephone line to the
water system is an Irksome task and
one that has met with many obstacles.
Steps were taken last night' to again
make the attempt.
