The "straw vote" upon annexa
tion held Tuesday showed that a
majority of 62 in the city voted in
favor ol same. Precinct 156 vote
was: 90 for, and 80 against: pre
cinct 157118 for and 133 against;
precinct 158145 for and 78
against annexation. The vote how
ever, is entirely illegal and has no
bearing whatever upon consolida
tion with Portland. The state law
is very plain upon the subject, and
there is no room for evasion. No
official notice was published or
posted informing the public that an
election was to be held upon the
question at any time or at any
place. Many believing it to be
farce did not vote upon the question
at all. The ballot called for a vote
upon annexation instead of consoli
dation, and in the description given
totally ignored the existence of the
city of 5t. Jolius. Many and varied
reasons might be given for the vote
resulting as it did. The annexa
tionists put up a strong fight, were
perfectly organized and publicly
presented their side of the case
without contradiction. On the other
hand, the "autis" practically put
up no fight, except what the Re
view was able to do. 1 hey were
tssurcd that the vote would be
illegal and therefore decided it
might be better to reserve their
energies until when it might he
come a real issue. The water ones
tiou seemed to be the chief bone of
contention. Many imagined as
soon as consolidation was effected
that we would get Hull Run water
at lower rates than is now paid for
water. They did not take into
consideration the fact it was eleven
years after Albiua was consolidated
with Portland before that city
finally secured control of the Hates
water system, and then Hates was
induced to sell out because he and
his brother were given the contract
for laying the Hull Run water
mains at their own price. Nor did
they realize the fact that bonds of
the city of Portland are now selling
nt less than par. Many prohibi
tionists voted for annexation be
cause they believed upon consolida
tion St. Johns would again become
dry by virttie of the district vote
taken hevcrnl years ago. They did
not believe that Home Rule would
High School Notes

the Jas. John High this year. Last
year there was a decided lack of
spirit among the students regard

athletic association was broken up
and all sports except base ball were
totally abandoned, but in strong
contrast this year has started out
fine. A general interest in athletics
has been aroused and as a result a
