Carrie Nation, of national fame
as a hatchet wieldcr against the sa
loons, passed to the other world
last week. Having the courage of
her convictions, she adopted a pe
culiar method of attempting to de
stroy the saloons. She was arrest
ed so often that it grew rather mon
otonous. However misguided and
futile her efforts were, she never
theless made a unique place in his
tory for herself for the havoc she
wrotitiht and the odd things that
she did.
The just punishment of crime is
getting to be very conspicuous by
its absence. A man's life is spared
only because of n harmonica inter
cepting the murderous bullet, yet
the assassin not but 00 days nnd
-100 fine. Another man is found
with stolen goods in his possession
and even confessed that he had
stolen them: vet he is sentenced to
one year in the iwiiitentliiry, but
left out on rnrole. The.se ate two
cases with which the people of St
Johns arc familiar, happening with
in the past week. How many like
cases there are every week in Port
laud is bevoud estimate almost. No
wander crime is rampant.
1
Yet another obstruction has been
placed in the pathway of the on
ward progress of Wcstrumitc. At
the adjourned meeting of the city
council Wednesday evening a vol
uminous document occupying many
typo-written pages in the nature of
n complaint against Wcstrumitc and
proposed cujoiument against its be
ing laid on jersey street and signed
by half n dozen presumably prop
erty owners was inflicted tipaii the
city fathers. It alleged many irreg
ularities in the proceedings and the
charges so frequent and devious
that no attempt was made to digest
them all. Mr. Mud promptly de
clared that he would assume the
additional burden and go right
ahead. Isn't it preposterous to sup
pose that (bene procrty owners
would go the c.cusc of keeping
out n hard surface that they have
reason to believe is better than any
laid in the Northwest, and which
personally they know nothing to
Its detriment? Docs it require
great imagination to discern the
dark and foreboding shadow of an
octopus behind it all? Think you,
which has the greatest object to at
tain the handful of procrty own
urs who never saw Westrtiunte, or
the paving trust to whom a bvtte
pavement would mean it
death blow? It may be that
the so-called proicrty owners are
acting in good faith, that they be
lleve Wcstrumitc is no good, that
they are spending their good dollars
lor attorney Hire that might bette
be used in laying hard surface, that
they believe the so-called facts pro
(lucetl by the trusts against the evt
deuce of our own citizens who hav
seen Wcstrumitc and pronounced it
best it may be. Hut if the al
leged property owners are ucting in
good fuith, their philanthropy is so
maguluccnt ami so entirely out ot
the ordinary tliut they must expect
their motives to be questional.
That this will be the biggest
year that Oregon has ever known
with the biggest crop total in it
history, is the prediction mude by

Oregon's newly formed naval

Portland faces the greatest water
famine it has ever known, says
Tuesday's Journal. The first really
hot day of the year fell Saturday,
and since then the reservoirs that
ordinarily hold 66,000,000 gallons
have been steadily falling every
day. Ofiicials of both the water
aad health departments have been
buried under a continuous. stream of
complaints by letter, telephone and
in person. The clamor of tlie peo
ple from all quarters of the city is
incessant and the thermometer has
not gone anywhere near the sum
mer limit.
The water board will meet this
ifter noon and consider ways and
mcius of relieving the situation. It
may be found necessary to discon
tinue the sprinkling of streets and
lawns, "There is a shortage of
water now at the high ix)iiits in the
city and there will be an unusual
shortage before the middle ot the
summer," declared Superintendent
Dodge of the water department to-
lay. "The cause ot It is, as usual,
the approach of hot weather and
the almost invariable accompani
ment of that season with the waste
of millions of gallons daily."
liven if both the new reservoirs
were available however they would
probably not ailed the present sit
nation as the city is now using
every drop of the 22,800,000 gallons
poured into the old reservoirs by
the old pipe line and the reservoirs
continue to fall day by day.
The city council and the engiu
eer measured the distance between
the saloons and the school grounds
Wednesday evening and found a
safely outside of the limit prescribe
by charter. It was discovered im
possible to sell liquor iu the Wood
house building, only 12 feet ot
being outside the limit, Afte
measurement the body adjourned
to the city hall, where a represent
alive ot the bond buying company
which was awarded the ferry bond
asked for eight days more time
which was grunted, A lengthy
document, signed by six alleged
projerly owners against laying
Westiumite on Jersey, was read ant
placed with the city attorney. Mr
Mud .stated that he would shoulder
all costs that might ensue by rea
sou of the latest move to impede
Wcstrumitc, and that work would
proceed on the street.
