Tuesday evening with nil members

cliulr. Minutes of the previous moat
Ins wore read nntl duly npproved.
A notltlon for tho establishment.

street nntl Willamette boulevard was
accepted and ordered placed on file.
A communication from Mrs. Caplc
ramonstratlnir nanlnst tliu second
viewers' report 011 Iluclinnnn street
was rend. She says their finding
was quite unsutlsfactory to hur and
Hint tho results nro practically tho
sumo ns found by tho firm hoard of
viewers. Therefore, hIio asked that
now vlowors, composed of practical
leal estate men, bo appointed. As
tho vlowcra' report lias already
been accepted, 110 further action was
taken In tho matter except to accept
tho communication mid order It
placed on file.
Ono tld for tho leaso ot tho rock
crusher was offered by F, 8. Nannnn,
but buliiK doomed n little too high
by council, tliu bid was rejected and
tho call for bids was ordered ro
advertised, mid may bo found elso
whero In this Issue.
Uldn for tho Improvement of Wll
lis boulevard woro then opened. Tho
first was tho 0110 offered by T. H.
Cochran, as follows: Cut 3Sc, fill 10c,
five-fool cement walk per foot 00c,
crosswalks 47c, box cutters 47. A
bid from J, II. Mooro road: Cut 37c,
fill 20c cement walks OCc, crosswalks
30o, box gutters 30c. Upon roforrlng
the two bids to tho city oiiKlnoer It
woo found that thero was only n
slight differouco between tho two,
and It was decided to hold tho bids
over for a week In order that tho
street commlttco might detcrmluo
which was tho best bid of tho two.

of Decatur and llnltlmoro streets
which was uskod for by tho Woolen
mill people. Tho placement of sumo
was grunted by council. Tho light
will bo placed about Septombor 1st.
An ordlnanco adopting tho engin

extension and widening of Fesson
streot was passed, and may bo found
In another column.
V. 8. Ilasoy was present and
wantod to know why tho grade of
North Edison streot had not, been es
tablished, that a potltlon for same

two yoars and yet no steps had been
taken towonl securing tho grndo
Tho mayor tried to explain that tho
engineer's services wero entlroly
devoted to tho streets whero petitions
had boon filed for Improvement,
that council had adopted the policy
of giving Improvement preference
over cases whero grades only wero
asked for, and that If a petition
was presented to council asking for
tho Improvomont of North Edison
street It would havo Its regular turn,
but Mr. Ilasoy was not satisfied, and
said ho would seo that the grado was
established. Tho mayor replied that
he would bo only too glad to help
him If ho could devolve some plan
for so doing. This street grado Is
sue is bobbing up qulto frequently
these days, and it might be well for
tho property owners along this
thoroughfare to realize the fact that
nothing can be done toward the es
tabllshment of the grado until the
engineer can be spared from tho Im
provement of Btreots, as it requires
threo or four weeks to accomplish
this work since no grade on any
street on tho side hill can bo es
tabllshed until a systematic survey
has been made of all. The finances
of the city are In such a condition
that tho services, of another engineer
layout of tho -question Just now, and
it does not seem fair that the en
gineer should be taken from streets
that are up for Improvement and
placed at grade work on a street for
which no Improvement Is asked.
Yet the people of Edison street are
deserving of having their request
granted. They have waited long and
patiently, and some of the property
owners are desirous of Improving
their residences but cannot do so
permanently until the grade Is es

Industries on City Streets
Liable to Pay
Tho city officials nro finding out
nmiio Interesting things- during tho
present Investigation as to tho sta1
Iuh of proceedings on Bovcral streets
along tho water front that wero
purported to havo been legally vn
cnted In tho past, and ns a result
tho city Is very liable to secure a
source ot revenue not heretofore
drawn upon. For Instance Inves
tigation establishes tho fnct that
tho ordlnanco vacating Chicago and
Albany Btreots, upon which Is lo
cated a portion of 8t. Jolum Ship
Ilulldlug plant, wuh never sinned by
tho mayor, thus making tho pro
ceedings void. 0, A. Cook wns may
or at tho time, ntul whether by de
sign or accident tho ordlnanco was
not signed Is problematical, As a
result of this finding tho ship build
ing plant stands liable to n pay
ment for tho like of tho ground, or
iiiny bo ejected therefrom, at tho
plcauuro of council, llurllngton
street wns also never vacated, and
wo bellovo John street nover wns.
The St. Johns Lumber company 00
cuplc these two streets, and nloo
covers part of Ilrndford street, which
was nover vacated. It also stands
at tho mercy of council. Tho Ma
rino Iran Works occupy part of
Charleston streot, which, It seems,
was nover vacated. The mayor has
Intimated that aftor ho lies secured
all tho diitu available, nnd ho finds
these plnuts "squatting" on city
property, that they will havo to pay
for tho uso of tho snmo, or romovo
their buildings therefrom. As tho
charter provides that tho city of
ficials may lonno public property
not to oxceod a torm of flvo yonrs,
It Is quite likely leases for that
porlod will bo secured from tho In-
lustrlos using these Btreots, As
about 210 feet of wntor front be
longing to tho city la covered by
thesu Industries nnd wnter frontngo
Is approximately worth C0 a foot
tho total vnluo of tho streets which
nro being used but from which no
remuneration Is being received to
tals 1 14,400, to sny nothing of ilrnd
ford street, if tho city should ro-
cetvo ten per cent for tho uso of
these streets at tho present valua
tion tho tidy llttlo sum of about
11500 would bo turned Into tho city
treasury per annum. Whut tho city
officials propose to do concerning
tho mnttor It Is too early to give
any definite Idea, but there promises
to bo something done along this
lino, It will not bo their purpose,
howovor, to work a hardship with
any of tho Industries, but slnco
thoy havo passed their swaddling
lothes days and nro all now paying
Institutions, It Is not more than
right that tho city should havo fair
compensation for blocking up theso
routes to tho wntor. No Individual
would stand for It. Tho city neods
the money, needs It badly, and since
It has carried these Industries along
hus far "without money and without
price" there should arise no murmur
'jn account of tho city at this time
asking for its own.

Thero Is no other way of finding

works tho same along nny line,

Keep Right At It
Did you over reallzo that plant
ing advertising is llko planting fruit
trees? You couldn't expect a whole
wagon load of apples the first year.
Neither would you tear tho tree up
bj the roots at tho end of tho sea-
ion If that load of fruit wero not
forthcoming. Yet you run a big
ud., and expect a carload ot sale,
and Just because you didn't do as
much as your neighbor over In tho
other orchard, who has been tend
ing his trees for years, you yank
your advertisement out of tho paper
and say "Advertising doesn't pay."
We wouldn't expect you to get
married to advertising tho first
time you made its acquaintance,
any more than we would expect you
to marry the girl who winked at
you on the street. Ex.
Work tor a Greater St Johns.
worth years from now Is difficult
to dotormlno nt this time. It nil
depends upon tho growth of tho
city. Pcrhnps $200,000 in flvo
yonrs, nnd perhaps n million ot dol
lars In twenty years It Is nil guess
work. Tho purposo of Its con
struction wns to obtain nnothor In
dustry for St. Johns, and this pur
pose Is fully served on tho salo as
proposed, Hotter than that, tho city
gets back nil It advanced and thou
sonic. Therefore, why not sell tho
dock? Why not have n building
teeming with life and activity In
stood ot a desorted structuro going
to decay from want of uso? Tho
streets covered by tho dock nro not
Included In tho sale, becauso the
city cannot sell streets, Whllo not
officially vacated, thoy aro never
theless vnented In fnct. Had the
city kept tho dock tho value of tho
streets covered by tho snmo would
hnvo been nil, nnd so they are
when tho salo Is consummated.
Their value to tho traveling pub
lic was lost when tho dock wns
constructed, nnd will, continue to bo
lost so long as tho structure standi),
whoever owns tho dock. Wo hnvo
heard tho former council censured
fur having n dock built with no
guarantee of n spur being built to
connect therewith, but thoy wero
not to blaino nny more than every
citizen In St. Johns who voted for
tho bonds, Tho council only
brought tho mnttor Wore tho peo
ple In n legal wny. They did not
recommend that It bo built, but lot
tho public docldo for Itself.

whom tho purchasers are, whether
tho railroad company Is Interested
In tliu deal, or whether It Is simply

! tho dock Is utilized to Its full ca

wo nil want to seo It doing business
Instead ot lying Idle, nnd whllo It
would bo belter for tha tuturo
generation to keep tho dock, It Ih
better for tho present generation
to dispose of It to tho best advant
age. Many cUIch would give ns
high as $10,000 In tho shape of a
bonus to secure such 1111 Institution,
ami slnco wo can secure It by tho
outlay of not n penny, why not let

So why complain about tho matter

council for turning n good denl

glvo them their full meed ot praise,
and congratulate ourselves upon tho
fact that taxes will bo reduced next
