The Postoffice Situation
Editor Review: It Is clear to
my mind that the coming comet Is
creating perhaps justly a great deal
of alarm. It is well known that
there was a flood In the days of
Noah. I am satisfied that history
repeats itself and I believe that
Noah was the greatest astronomer
of the day in which he lived.
First, for the reason that if the
Bible be true, he knew what would
happen in 120 years and it hap
pencd to the day. He evidently
kuewfrom his astronomical knowl
edge that at a certain time a celeS
tlal body would pass between the
earth and the sun and he evidently,
as an astronomer, knew that in
passing, the suu would strike the
object passing and would lose its
influence upon the earth, and being
between the earth and. the suu, and
much larger than the suu and pass
ing above the poles of the earth and
having great attraction, lowered the
poles of the earth (to illustrate, five
miles). The law of gravity shows
clearly to me that water flows 20
miles per hour. Now, in order
that water should find its level it
required 40 days and 40 nights at
the speed above meutioucl and
mountains became covered and till
humanity was drowned except
those protected by Noah's ark.
Now all animal life must of nec
essity climb higher to avoid drown
ing. I am satisfied tliut Noah's ark
was situated at the highest point
during the flood and all nature
crept Into it for self preservation
aud the ark floated and for 40 days
and 40 nights as the Bible says,
all living nature of course went into
the ark, two by two, and the flood
subsided. If you remember Noah
opened the wiudow of the ark'and
sent forth a pigeon and in due time
the pigeon returned with a leaf in
her mouth convincing Noah that
the flood had reached its summit,
or iu other words the water had
found its level aud mountains in
the north were submerged aud dry
land appeared in the south as a
matter of reason.
Now this establishes, in my mind
conclusively, that Noah's knowl
edge of astronomy was as I much
superior to the best astronomer of
today as 120 years exceeds the
ability of the astronomer of today
as to what will happen In the fu
ture. I am now satisfied that if
the coming comet passes the earth
beucath the northern pole and ex
cludes the attraction of the suu
upon the earth, as it necessarily
must, and, having greater attraction
upon the earth than the sun and
draws the earth by its uttractiou to
such an extent as to lower tile poles
of the earth (five miles to illustrate)
the waters of the south will flow for
40 days and 40 nights and the
mountains of the north will be sub
merged and plains and dry lands
will appear iu the south, 'and hu
manity is extinct and nature begins
again. This is as true as the fact
is that if you staud before a heated
furnace and place a screening be
tween you and the furnace, the
screen receives the attraction aud
the body opposite exercises its in
flueuce; therefore, if the coming
body passes between the earth and
the sun, the sun's iufluence is
absorbed by the body passing and
the body's influence iu passing
lowers the poles of the earth (five
miles, to illustrate) and the north
will become more frigid than it-uow
is as it shows that it was more tor
rid iu Noah's time than now, from
the fact that ferns, a tropical
!;rowth are found, without dispute,
u what is knowu a frigid zone.
My judgment as an astronomer,
that all humanity ought to take
notice and each prepare for himself
au ark of salvation, for who knows
that the coalBg meteor may not by
its attraction lower the north pole,
and hence, if it does, the waters of
the south seeking their level will
produce a dart ruction ot all living
matter sot prepared for by some
thing equal to Neah's-ark. Now
this is only arrived at by following
the straight edge ot reason from
Noah uato bow is the opinion of
B. ,1 Staow, of St. Johns.

Held to the roof of a burning
building by a rope he had tied
around his body to keep him from
falling. W. T. Alford, a painter,
was burned to death last I-riday
Alford was at work on the roof
of the big plant of the Oregon
Wood Distillery company near
Whitwood Court station on the
United Railways line. He was
spraying the roof with graphite, an
iuflamablc painting liquid, A spark
from the smokestack of the plaut
fell on the roof aud in an iustant it
was all ablaze. Al ford's clothing
had become saturated with the
liquid and caught fire.
Screaming with pain, he ran,
stumbling aud rolling over the roof.
So intense was the pain that he was
unable to free himself from the
rope he had attached to his body
to keep hl.11 from slipping from the
roof. A hose was thrown to Har
vcl Fauuclson, who was working
with Alford on a tempo.ery stage
below the roof, and in trying to
grasp it he fell thirty feet, sustain
ing little injury.
By the aid of ladders mtfn finally
rcichcd the burning painter and
with the hose extinguished the
fl mi's. The lives of 20 men em
ployed iu the wood alcohol distillery
were endangered by the fire. Several
barrels of alcohol would have blazed
up had the fire spread.
It was some time uciorc ur. s.
M. Maun of Unuton, could reach
the scene to administer medical at

A Cause For Thanks
When vou nick un one of the
local papers, and after glancing nt
the headlines wearily thrust It
aside, remarking, "nothing in the
paper today," did you ever stop 10
think what that phrase "nothing
in the paper today" means? It
means that iu the day or week just
past no misfortune has befallen any
one In our city, that no fire wiped
out a neighbor's worldly goods,
that the grim angel of death has
not crossed the threshold of u friend,
that 110 man driven by Honor,
hatred or fear has taken the life of
fellow human, that no poor devil,
haunted by the past, or misdeeds of
some other, linK crossed the great
divide by his own hand. So the
next time you pick up a paper that
doesn't announce a tradegy give a
little thanks instead of grumbling
because there is no news.

The one thjng which makes for
the prosperity of Portland aud as a
matter of course, St. Johns, is the
wonderful development aud pros
perity of the country tributary
thereto. A little trip up the Colum
bia to Hood RiVcr and Mosicr Sat
urday disclosed the fact that these
busy little towns were just begin
ning their annual strawberry liar
vest, ami thousands of other evi
dences of prosperity there. The
prospects are fine (or - a bumper
crop aud the prices are remarkably
good, being quoted at $4.00 1014.50.
per crate of 24 boxes.
At Mosicr, a ulost enthusiastic
meeting was held Saturday evening
attended by about 500 of the citi
zetis of Portland, Hoqd ' River,
Mosicr and the Dalles. The ob
jects of the meeting were two-fold:
to discuss the "Good Roads move
ment" and to partake of a most dc
liciotts banquet prepared by the
commercial, citlb assisted by the
good ladies of Mosicr. It was re
freshing to listen to the addresses
of the different speakers. Not a
word of discord. Universal har
mony. One all prevailing senti
ment. The best roads money and
skill can produce, and at once, uot
a century front now. , The princl
pal speaker:) were Judge Webster
and "Our" Tom Richardson. It is
enough to say that these gentlemen
exceeded themselves in their dis
play of wit, us'well ns in their pre
situation of arguments iu favor of
the Good Roads movement.
The dsvelopnicnt pf the Mosicr
valley is remarkable, even iu this
country where rapid development
is the rule. Where two or three
years ago all was pine, fir und vine

A petition for the installation of
an arc light at intersection of New
York- and Leonard streets opened
proceedings of the city council
Tuesday night. Petition accepted
und ordered filed, where it will re
pose quietly with many more of the
same nature until funds .are availa
ble to place more .lights.
The street committee recom
mended that a Studebakcr street
sprinkler be purchased at a cost of
S398, nnd the mayor was directed
to negotiate for the water wagon.
The business men 'have ugrccd tO'

is an inch deep aud still rising.
A large delegation of property
owners on Fesseudcn street and sev
eral representatives of the Portland
Railway, Light 'St Power Co. held
a joint now wbw "with 'the council
iu an effort Uv come to some liar
monioiis coifclusi6n looking to the
improvement of thjs thoroughfare.
The trolley pcoplciowu a thirty foot
strip of laud along'lts entire length,
and they arc willing, nay anxious,
to have the same improved, pro
vided some other source pays the
full bill and they arc immune from
costivlty of street repair henceforth
and forever Hereafter, Fcsscudcu
street property owners are not will
ing to concede this concession, aud
thereby hangs the tale. Some want
to' go ahead nnd Improve a twenty
foot strip on cither side of the rail
way right of way,' while others con
tend that tile railway company
should tit the ij.tme time improve
their own land. Tjc company Is
willing that their property should
bs condemned for street purposes if
the immunity clause, is inserted aud
their tights hold good as at present.
Iu order to endeavor to reach some
satisfactory agreement the property
owners adjourned to a lower room
and selected S. Turner, J'. Scales
and H. C. Hurlbert to represent
them, and the mayor appointed the
city attorney and street committee
to meet in joint conclave with the
railway pfhci.als.. It is believed
matters will be sovntijiwtedjas u re
sult that work will proceed with
,'cry little further delay.

the use of Ivauhoe street on July

The bell tower imbroglio aroused
much discussion. The attitude of
the fire department In first request
ing that a hell tower be constructed,
aud then after the contract has been
let and work upon Its construction
commenced, remonstrating against
its completion, rather stunned the
couucilmen. To make the best of
a bad proposition, however they de
cided to settle with the contractor
and permit the bell tower project to
go down into history as au error ot
judgment and a delusion and u
snare, in spite of the fact that the
attorney decided council could go
ahead and construct the tower as
originally planned without fear of
violating or iulriugiug upon tue
provisious of the fire ordinance,

The office of postmaster for St.

the citizens just now, The term of
F. W. Valentine, the present in

secured more enjoyment out of the
comet's scheduled appearance Wed
nesday afternoon than most people
did. With two bottles wrapped to

spent lots of time scanning (?) the

would 'become exceedingly anxious
to have "a look." After a little

would naturally hurriedly place it
to his eyes and glance quickly up
to the suu. But he wouldn't sec it.
Instead uu avalanche of water
would almost overpower him for a
