JACK HAMILTON KILLED
BY FALL FROM MACHINE
Jack Hamilton, 70-year-old bridge
watchman at Oregon City, whose
wife and daughter live at 77th street
and Powell Valley road, was killed
on Thursday of last week while per
forming hi* duties in the Clackamas
county city.
Mr. Hamilton had arrested William
Schmitt of Oregon City for violating
traffic rules on the Oregon City-
West Linn bridge. The aged deputy,
after halting the car, jumped on the
running board and ordered Schmitx
to drive to the sheriffs office. As
the machine left the bridge Hamilton
was seen to fall from the running
hoard to the pavement. Schmitx de­
ni«*! knowing of the man's fall until
passersby shouted to him. Mr. Hani-
ilton's skull was fractured, resulting
in death.
The bridge crossing the Willam­
ette at Oregon City has been in an
unsafe condition, through long us­
age, and an officer has been sta­
tioned there for some months to pre
vent auto traffic endangering the
structure. The voters npproved of a
bond issue which would have provid­
ed funds for a new bridge but the
supreme court ruled th«1 measure a*
having been passed in violation of *
section of the constitution.

MT. SCOTT HUMORIST
MANY ACTIVITIES AT
JOKES CITY FATHERS
WOODMERE SCHOOL
Once upon a time E. F. Stout was
a parachute jumper. That was some­
thing like 30 year* ago. He has since
“settled down” and the settling place
happened to be out in the Mt- Scott
district. The pioneer made his first
public «peech Wednesday. It was on
the occasion of the Foster Road
hearing before the city council. He
is an ardent advocate of a drainage
sewer along the roadway. When he
asked for permission to speak he did­
n’t at first appear to be much of an i
ofator.
And no one remotely sus­
pected he was a humorist.
But Daniel Webster and Henry
Clay and Patrick Henry and Arte­
mus Ward all rolled into a composite
talker couldn't have made more of
an impression than did this fiery,
droll citixen from the suburbs. May­
or Baker got up and shook hands
with Stout in the middle of his talk
and the galleries set up a deafening
applause.
“Wa are certainly in the mud out
our way,” declared Stout at one point
in his speech, “and we need that sew­
er. Why. the only thing you can
drive through Mt. Scott in the win­
ter time is a snake and tha’d have to
be a water snake.”
“Will you give us a balloon ascen
sion if you get your sewer?” asked
Commissioner Mann, with facetious
intent, as Stout concluded his argu­
ments.
“You bet I will,’’ was the quick re-
tort, “and I’ll take you up with me
and cut the rope."

reason advanced
by Mnnn in announcing the discon­

He states
that during the past three years hun­
dreds of resident* on a flat rate
used water morning, noon and night
on vacant lots, while those who de­
sired the same privilege under the
meter system were forced to pay for
all water used. Mann point out that
it would necessitate the employment
of several inspectors in the water bu­
reau to check up on residents if the
free service was continued.
“The war is over and we must dis­
continue the service,” said Mann.
A charge of 33 a year will be made
hy the water bureau for vacant lots
adjoining a dwelling. Throe thous­
and five hundred applications for
free water were received last year.
Mann announced. Notice of the dis­
continuance of free water service this

Mr.. Evans advised the children to
