What disposition to make of the ;meetlng had lts .formal opening today
. When thestreet grade on Washing
ton avenue betw:en Fir and Eighth
was established some Ave years ago,
me wrong grade was given the build
ers and to Mrs. Zuber, the owner of the
(skating' rink building. The proper
-grade, which Is now being established
and sidewalks built along it, brings the
walk a lttle over a foot above the sill
of the front entrance to the building.
The trouble was discovered yester
day when a crew of men commenced to
. lay a walk for the J. W, White proper
ty, the vacant block used as a wood
storage space. The trade established
there would not conform with the
one established to build the rink on
erable amount of attention. Mayor
Richardson brought the question up
and though the matter was finally left
to the street committee, the opinions
expressed Indicate that the city will
buy a sprinkler rather than hire the
work done. .
Another matter that occupied the at
tention of the council was the' problem
of planting trees and rearranging the
jagged tree 1 alignment on certain
streets. One specific instance of where
sidewalk will hit the tree line was on
Adams in front of the S. F. Richard
con property. The trees are matured
and to cut them down seems hardly the
proper course, said the councilmen,
until the property owner had been con
sulted with. The nrohlem will hrnns-ht
up at a subsequent meeting.
Will Plant Park Trees.
Under this discussion Councilman
Dunn Dunn inaugurated the movement
to have trees planted around the city
property at Fourth and Pennsylvania.
The tree line of Pennsylvania will be
made to conform with the proposed
tree line along that street, uniform in
size, kind and location. The necessary
shade trees will be purchased by the
city to get that work done properly.

Plant to Work This Season Srils
Brick to Union.
La Grande's brick yard will woi a
this summer as usual. John Wilson
has purchased it from the Kreiger es
tate and already there is activity to
be seen at the yards. Today he start
ed his men to loading out 300,000
brick for the new high school build
ing at Union and many other orders
from Union and Wiallowa counties
have been filed the past few days.
It Is with considerable satisfaction
that La Grande people will read of th
certainty of the. brick yard operation
this year, for when the yard runs on
full time it means the scattering of an
other good sized pay roll in La Grande
end La Grande knows what It m:ans
to have the payrolls. ;
The quality of brick made by this
yard is recognized throughout Pastern
Oregon as the best and shipments in
the past have even been mad& into
Idaho. . ' , .
AH predict a prosperous .season In
the brick business with Mr. Wilson at
its head.
