The Sewer Meeting
A meeting was called at the, city
hall Momlny evening by Council
limn Geo. L. Perrine of the second
ward, its order to get the views
and expressions of his constituents
in regard to the manner of laying
the Maple street sewer system. The
meeting was attended by a fair rep
rcscutation of property owners in
tercsted in the proceedings. Mr,
Perrine opened the meeting by tell
ing the object of it, and prcliminat
cd his remarks by stating that he
had 110 iersoual feeling against any
man. He then took up the spcciu
catious under which the contractor
was supposed to lay the sewer, and
invited any one in the audience to
hold tin his hand when he read any
section that luttl been complied with
by the contractors. This invitii
tion was repeated at several inter
vols but no hands were raised. The
parts of the specifications he culled
particular attention to were the
manholes, tunnels, tamping, water
and the length of open trench
permitted. He statel from his owu
personal knowledge that the man
holes were luid by incompetent
help, very poorly constructed and
were in no wise up to specifications
The tunnels were flagrant violations
and tatunitm and the use of water
were almost entirely dispensed with,
while the specifications distinctly
specified that this omission should
not be made. Open trenches were
only allowed for 200 feet, but he
knew that they were left open for
double that distance, and in one
instance 1 200 feet. He believed it
no more than fair that a rebate of
one-third of the cost to the property
owners should be made by the con
tractor if the work was to be ac
ccnted. as that much would be
saved to the contractor by reason
of not living tip to thcspccificutiotis.
He then asked for an expression of
r-cutimcut on the part of the prop
crty owners affected.
Iix-Counclhuau Downey respond
cd and told n few incidents that be
had noted in regard to the sewer,
lie told of a bell being broken en
tirely off and a long sliver of the
pipe split off that the contractor
was attempting to fasten together
with a piece of old rusty tin in the
main sewer. After strenuous ob-
j ctiou it was removed, however.
He said the cement was skimped
mid of poor quality. A fifty-foot
tunnel, he said, bad been laid along
the main sewer, the pipe 01 which
was laid crooked and erratic, and
was laid on mud sills which would
decay in a short time inevitably
causing the pipe to sink and break
ut the joints. Tamping, he con
tended, was conspicuous for its ab
sence. He told how the contractor
had received the bid in the first
place through the tampering and
juggling of the same by the city
engineer, that it waiv irregular
should not have beeti let. He
how he had fought against
manner of laylnK while on
council and has never been satisfied
with it since. He said he was go
ing home late one night from lodge
when he disco vereil workmen lay
ing manholes by lautern light,
which did not look good to him.
Mr. Downey wound up by declar
ing that he would not pay his as
sessment until the rest of the peo
ple were satisfied.
Chairman Perrine then made a
few additional remarks in which he
cited an instance of a team belong
ing to the St. Johns Lumber Co.
falling luto Bradford street sewer
and having to be derricked out. He
asked that those opposed to the
method in vogue of laying the sew
er to make their objections, aud
unless they were made he would
vote to pay the bill in Its entirety
when presented,
J. S. Downey then made a mo
tion that their representative be In
structed to refuse to pay the sewer
bill until all irregularities had been
remedied. This was promptly sec
onded and' a standing vote was
unanimous in its favor.
Several other citizens mude a few
remarks pertiueut to the subject,
after which the meeting adjourned
sine die.

Decoration Day
Memorial Day passed off in a
quiet aud orderly manner in St.
Johns. The weather was ideal and
a large concourse of people gathered
on the streets in the morning to
witness the march of the old voter
ans to Hill's cherry orchard, where
appropriate services were held. Pre
paratory to the march Prof. C. H.
Boyd, on behalf of the school chit
dreti ot St. Johns, presented to the
old warriors of Gen. Compsou Post
a beautiful silk flag as a token of
their esteem aud their appreciation
of the lessons in patriotism taught
them during the past school year
Commander Miller responded on
behalf of the Post thanking the
children for the beautiful emblem,
for their kind remembrance and as
sured them that as long as Compsou
Post existed the (lag would be cher
ished as one of its most valued pos
sessions and when "tups" was
sounded for the last one of the old
heroes, the banner should be re
turned to the loyal donors to be
kept a perpetual reminder of the
.'rizzlcd old veterans who endured
the privations and braved the dan
gers of war that these should ever
have a free country and free edu
cational advantages. The W. K.
C. and hundreds of rchool children
were in the line of march.
In his first Inaugural address,
says Goodwin's Weekly, Mr. Lincoln
said: "We arc not enemies but
friends, We must not be enemies.
Though passions may have strained
it must not break the bonds ot af
fection. The mystic chords of
memory, stretching from every
battlefield and patriot grave to ev
ery living heart aud hearthstone
over all this broad land, will yet
swell the chords of the Union when
n tru in touched, as surely they will
be, by the better angels of our na
tion." In all history cannot be
found more beautiful words than
It was just 50 years ago that those
words words were spoken. Have
"the better angels of our nature"ut
ast asserted themselves and forced
aside all the dark thoughts of the
past, until we can realize at last
that what happened then had to be,
mid the men who stiugglcd then
were each but acting his role as
ate culled the mighty nets of tre
mendous tragedy?
Twenty-five years ago there
were not many graves to decorate
save tlie graves ot tuose who went
down under the canopy of battle,
aud the steps of the veterans who
marched to perform that duty Had
much of the old elastic spring of
the marchers of the immortal four
years of war. Today they are well
liuli all goue.aud it is wltu nailing
and feeble steps that those who re
main struggle on to perform that
abor of love. lint the hands that
are held down to them from above
iave grown to a host, and we may
not shake off the belief that on dec
orotion day they are not ludiffer
ent to what Is done here; that the
shining ranks are all filled; with
the old commanders at their head;
the old flags, cleansed of every
stain are above them; that silver
bugles are sounding the calls, min
gled with the roll of muffled phan
tom drums; for the spectacle of a
great nation stopping to.strew flow
ers upon the graves of their heroic
dead Is splendid enough to arrest
the attention of the universe.
Mason is Busy
V. W. Mason, the hustling local
cement manipulator, has secured
the contract for erecting the Farm
ers' National exchange bank build-
ng at Scappoose with reinforced
concrete. It will be a two-story
structure and Mason put a force of
men to work upon it this week. He
also has the contract for building
Willumbia Hall ut Portsmouth,
work upon which will now be
pushed right along. He expects
to complete the siaewaiic ot ressen-
den street next week. Owing to
having his hands full ot work, he
was compelled to refuse a contract
for constructing oo leet ot con
crete sidewalk at Vancouver. Mr.
Mason is adding an automatic ce
ment mixer to his equipment.

Valuable Invention
Luther Badger of this city is the
inventor of a ball-bearing hub
which far excels anything of its
kind ever before devised. Mr. Bad
ger has been working on his inven
tion for thirty years, and is to be
congratulated on the success of his
efforts. It is termed "Uadgcr's
Universal Hall Bearing Hub," ca
pacity unlimited. A hub made
from the scale of draft will contain
two hundred aud eighty-four, one
half inch balls which will carry 500
pounds each and have no in bear
ing all the time, niving it a capacity
of 32;$ tons. Twelve of them nn-
der a passenger coach will carry
190 tons, which is more than double
the capacity required. This hub
applies to all kinds of whccls.shafts
or uses that may he required. It
can be reduced to two or four ways
for light work or increased to any
number or size to do the work re
quired, will stand as much lateral
strain as direct pressure and ap
plies to the drive wheels of a loco
motive the same as any other wheel
and to n stationary engine.
To Be Better than Ever
Portland will be pretty much glv
en up to the Rose festival for the
next ten days. Business affairs
will be relegated to the background
Suite extensively aud the queen
ower will rule with undisputed
sway. This year's spectacle prom
ises to set a mark with better dis
plays, more gorgeous pageants aud
better decorations of city streets
and buildings than ever before.
Other Oregon cities will participate
to a larger extent than formerly aud
out of town people have announced
their intention of coming in large
numbers. The city elections will
distract uttentiou to some extent,
it Is thought, from the festival on
June 5th, opening day, but with
that out of the way, the remainder
of the week will be giveu up to en
joyment. Portland rose gardens
promise to produce d weattli ot per
fect bloom next week.
A Good Showing
The following number of pieces
of mail of the different classes han
dled iu the St. Johns postoffice dur
ing the mouth of May indicates
there was something doing in that
busy institution, and when it is re
membered that each piece of mail
matter is handled au average of
four times in going through the
office, it will mean a big contract:

Memorial Address
Editor Review: Having been im
portuned by n number of friends
to have a speech delivered by me
on Decoration day iu the city of bt.
Johns, Multnomah county, Oregon,
published in some paper. I have
selected yours and the speech fol -
Worthy Commander, citizens
and children: We have met on this
occasion on this beautiful spot of
ground iu our beloved city of St.
Johns, to recall the brave deeds of
the soldiers of the North, in that
mighty struggle that lasted from port. He accordingly spoke of cd
i86t to 1865, being more than .i6'ucation aud Its true meaning, dis
years ago, nut sun trcsn as ever in
the minds of those living then who
remain to this day. I see standing
ou this beautiful spot a monument
aud I know there is not a grave
within miles of this place. What
means this? I will answer: On April
12. 1861. the South declared war
anainst the North and fired on Ft.
Similiter, and the reverberations o
those cautions vibrated from the
Atlantic to the Pacific ntid the Gulf
of Mexico to the Great Lakes
the North, aud on aud ou to the
ends of the earth and war was made
known to exist iu America between
the North and the South. I cannot
iu detail mention nit that did occur
or the battles that were fought, but
this I do know, that the loyal men
and women iu every city, village
and hamlet arose and suid in their
might "treason must die," and in
the South they said iu Ilk
manner "we must have and will
have extension of slave territory;"
suffice it to say that the armies of
the North and the armies of the
South met and the battle was fierce.
The Toar of our artillery and nuts
ctry seemed to make the very
earth tremble aud when the smoke
of buttle had blown away, the
North gathered up its wounded and
dylnir, the dead were buried where
they fell, and their vlctoripus army
returned home with colors living.
It is also well known that soldiers
all aloni: the line of battle were
buried where they fell, be that 011
mountain side or in the rich valley
elow, after the dead of the battle
lad been removed there remained
the torn aud shattered and even
shredded whose Identity could not
be known aud these remains were
gathered as with a rake and placed
n sraves and your speaker knows
of his own personal knowledge of
the right bunds of three men being
itirled In one gruve. How can I
call that grave other thitit the grave
of the unknown dead? aud thous
ands of graves like this today are
Soldiers, we are too apt In steak-
ng of that great war to speak in
praise of ourselves, but I us one am
modest in speaking of any itct of
mine during that terrible struggle
except that I did at all times and
under all circumstances as far as 1
could to obey my superior. Here I
must diverge and place true patriot-
sin where it belongs, and in order
to do so I must call your attention
to the gray haired mother of the
North, who, with silent prayer con
sented that her four sons might go
and take the uncertainties of war.
again call your attention to a
young wife and n three-year-old
child at her knee saying: "Go.John
and do your duty and I will care
for our child," Again let me call
your attention to an only sister
who in like manner btd her broth
ers go aud defend their country,
aud again the gentle maiden who
gave the one who was dearer to her
thau father 01 mother or sister or
Now, when the uews of battle Is
teard that gray haired mother with
fear aud trembling dares not read
the papers for fear her loved ones
iave fallen aud sue is informed
that John, Joseph aud Clark are
among the dead, and she weeps as
only mothers can weep, And now
the young wife, whose child at tins
time is 5 years old, steps to his
mother's knee and and says:"nioth-
er are you sick, you look so pale
and white?" and the mother re
plies: "My child, your father has
fallen aud you will see him no
more," and the paper iu her hand
wet with weeping. The sister
is weeping for her brothers, aud
the maiden whose betrothed went
away in his strong, manly vigor,
only to fill a southern grave, dons
the garb of widowhood and mourns
her soul-male and naught can com
fort for none can understand.
Soldiers, can we afford to speak
of our loyal acts as compared with
those noble, loyal, patriotic mothers,
wives, sisters, sweathearts, who
outrivalled the famous mothers of
ancient Sparta? To the women of
1 86 1 to 1 86s, if this country were
placed iu your hands it would be
come invincible to all advancing
toes. Women I can say no more.
May God protect you while you
live.' Amen and amen.

High School Notes
Celia I tunkins, Editor.
A delegation of G. A. R. vetcr
ans visited the high school Friday,
, and addressed the students. When
Mr. Nolaud, the first speaker.
j learned that his was the first speech
icver given in the new auditorium,
t he seemed Impressed aud said that
I he could not bring himself to tell
of the terrors and tragedies of war
as he had at first Intended, for he
I wished the first message from that
platform to be of far different im-
cussing the comparative advantag
cs of the present educational system
and that of the time of Lincoln,
asking iu conclusion: "What would
Lincoln have thought if he could
have gone to school iu a building
like this?".
Mr. McCollum then related scv
crat personal extierlences incidental
to the war, although not pertaining
directly to it. Au impromptu pro
gram was presented, consisting of
songs by the school, recitations by
Luetic Whelan and Joyce Winslow,
and a reading by Miss Rttudalt.
The auditorium was adorned with
flags and flowers, aud the visitors
were presented with bunches of
roses. The last sjieaker ou the
program, Mr. Adams, spoke briefly
expressing appreciation of the wel
come that had been given them.
fter the singing of America the
assembly was dismissed.
