Congested Condition of Traffic De
mands Better Service.
There is n crying need for a ten
minute through service on the Port
land Suburban every morning and
evening. That is plain to anyone
whose business forces him to make
the trip to Portland between six
and eight in the morning and be
tween five and seven at night. At
these hours the cars nie terribly
over-burdened: not only are the
aisles crammed but the platform
and the steps as well.
Some of the cars of late have
held as high as 147 eople, and
heaven knows how such a number
can be jammed into and upon one
car meant for a half hundred,
Monday night there were 103 on
one car and it was overstuffed: vet
each person hated to wait twenty
minutes for another car. If the
schedule could be so arranged as to
have a ten-minute sendee for four
hours a day patrons would be much
better served.
It is true it would cost the com
pany a bit more and returns would
be no greater: yet the time is rap
idly coming when such a service
will be installed !ecause of the
increase of traffic. The road might
as well commence now to cater to
the needs of the public. L,et a
stranger come to Saint Johns with
a view of making his home herej
and working elsewhere and if he
should happen to I ward one of these
crowded coaches he'd hike back to
the voods with his desires to locate
crushed out of him,
During the evening hours in
Portland out-bound passengers walk
down Third to meet the in-bound
car and then board it: thus, by the
time the car reaches Yamhill it is
loaded to the gunwales and those
who have patiently waited for
twenty minutes may either stand
for the trip or stand for the next
Efforts should be made to point
out to the management the over
worked service during certain
hours. Surely the steady growth
of Saint Johns deserves a more fre
quent service!

City Council Closes The Adjourned
Meeting Monday Night.
The second adjourned meeting of
the city council was held on Mon
day evening -and had a lively ses
sion till after ten o'clock. All
members were present when Mayor
king gavelled the table and were
ready for business.
Committee on securing signatures
of property owners along Jersey
street rcjorted that all but three
owners had signed the waiver of
rights, and those three would sign
as quickly ns the document reached
them. The council adopted the

was for $240 for services as mar

and n desire to stop legal proceed

sides. The matter was referred to
the ways and means committee
with directions to investigate the
work done and report at an early
A ivetition was presented by Sam
Cochran asking the council, in view
of the strained financial condition
of the town until the next levy
shall have Ikcii collected, to grant
license for the sale of liquors under
restrictions and nt a price which
that body might consider most
advisable. There were two hun
dred names of taxpayers upon the
iietiUon and these names were
read to the board.
Mr. Aaronsou at once addressed
the board. lie stated that the

office has heard lots of kicks regard
ing the hour nt which the Saint
Johns jwstoflice closed nt night. It
is jwssiblc this kick has been heard
before this yet it seems to have
now taken on new life.
''This closing at six o'clock is a
nuisance," said one laboring man.
"I get through my work at six and
then have to walk some distance
home. It Is n cotmle blocks out of 1

In Portland the postoflice is

through the holiday season nine
o'clock is the hour. I believe the
working man should be shown some
consideration and I'm ready to
register n kick on this six o'clock
closing. In any event,. seven o'clock
is early enough to close and the
folks in the ollice will soon find it
out to."
A call itimii Mrs. Clark, who is
postmaster in Saint Johns, presented
another side to the matter. Win. 11
told of the kicks regarding the office jjl
closing at six o'clock each night
Mrs. Clark said:
"Tliis office does not close at six

wishes of the icoplc: that the vote
last month showed 147 against the
granting of license ami 101 for it:
that there were names on the tieti
tiou that legally had 110 right to
sign it:' that those who wanted
liquor could get it elsewhere with
out the bother of having saloons
here. He thought there were
other ways to raise money.
A Mr. lllnck considered the
bringing of the matter befote the
board a direct insult to that body.
riiese two sieakers were not mem
bers of the council.
Mr. lid wards said he was not a
temiKTauce crank: he would have
granted license if the vote had been
to give the tieoplu what they wish.
However, if the closing hour should
be placed at nine o'clock there
would still be some patrons who
would delay their call beyond that
"Again, the greater portion of
patrons of this ollice have children
who call here as frequently as four
or five times it day and when this
office is closed at night very little
mail remains in it. There are some
who live several miles away who
come for their mail only once n

that the office remain open for 11

Councilman Thompson said he
md never changed his views: yet
le reulized that just now the reve
nues of the city were in bad shajie
and he saw uo way out of it except
to issue the license nsked for. ha-
oons will soon be across the river
and north of town: there certainly
could be uo harm in helping the
citv treasury by granting license

although he was opposed to it, he
voted to have it done. He thought
the revenues from the license would
be used by extra jiolice and excuses.
Right here things began to get a
lit personal and it looked to a man
up a telephone ole as if one had
better take to the tan ttniDcr: out.
the thing lasted only a couple
minutes. The matter was very
hilly discussed. Finally, Mayor
King said he saw no other way to
secure adequate revenue for the
fiscal year than to grant license:
he would be pleased to have some
suggest a plan: he called for an
opinion from W. V. Jobes.

patrons of the office.
"If it can be shown that patrons
cannot get their mail after they quit
work within the fifteen minutes the
office is held ocu I am sure ar
rangements can be made to hold
ohmi n bit longer: but, as I say,
there are some who would put off
calling for mail even if the office

have to open nt seven in the morn

and it seems as if fifteen minutes

day's work for anyone."
