NO. 28 The Monahan Reception Roosters Will Crow Means Much for St. Johns Council Proceedings The Library Declamatory Contest Postmaster T. J. Monahan and wife, having been married for n period of forty years, decided it the proper thing to give a little recep tion to their friends last Snturdny evening in honor of the occasion. The event was a most pleasing one, and the couple scarcely realized they had so many good, true friends. Several hundred participated in the hospitality extended, and wished the "young" couple ninny more years of wedded bliss. For thirty years Mr. and Mrs. Monahan have lived in St. Johns, and seen it develop from a veritable wilderness to its present cosmopolitan appearance. rcw people nave more friends than this most worthy couple, and it afforded them keen pleasure to be present upon this most delightful occasion. The following appeared in the Sunday Oregonian, together with cuts of Mr.nud Mrs. Monahan: Married 40 years and having lived 30 of them in St. Johns is the record of T. J. Monahan and wife Married at Alathus, Mo., May 19 1872, they moved to St. Johns in May, 1882, and have resided there continually since that time. Doth have been prominent in the sociul and civic life of St. Johns during this period, Mrs. Monahan being especially prominent in the United Evangelical church, of which both arc members. Mr. Monahan entered the employ of the Willamette Bridge Street Railway company In May, 1890. and had the honor of being the con ductor on the first street car to cn tcr St. Johns. At that time his run was from St. Johns to what is now Stanton and Commercial street, and his schedule was six trips a day. lie was school director from 1808 to tooi, and city councilman in iqoa and 100.1, during which time he drew tin nearly all the ordl nances passed by the city. It is said not one of these has been found faulty. Early in 1006 he was np- pointed manager of the St. Johns branch of the Portland Gen eral Electric Co., which position he held until appointed postmaster, June 23, 1910. ' Mr. and Mrs. Monahan hnve had seven children, only three of whom arc living. Their two boys, E. V., and V. II. Monahau,are in the em ploy of the city of Portland and their daughter, Mrs. C. II. Thayer, is in the St. Johns postofficc as her father's assistant. A reception was held at the .Won ahun residence, corner ol Smith avenue and Oswego street, last night, attended by a number of old and new friends, who called to con gratulate them 011 having p issed the 40th milestone of married life. From Monday Evening's Tele gram: Postmaster and Mrs. T. J. Mon ahan, of St. Johns, observed their ruby anniversary Saturday evening in keeping open house for their friends, more than 200 of whom called to offer congratulations and to leave numerous valuable pres ents, consisting of silver, linen and cut glass. A large cut glass punch bowl was given by the members of the Evangelical church, to which both belong. Mr. and Mrs. Mona han were married at Althus, Mo., May 12, 1872, and came to St. Johns iu May, 1 882. In May, 1890, Mr. Monahan started to work for the Willamette Bridge Street Rail way Co., his run being at that time from what is now Stanton aud Com mercial streets to St. Johns, making six runs a day. After 16 years of service on this line, 14 of which he bad Frank A. Smith (still employed by the present street car company) for his inotormau, he assumed the management of the Portland Gen eral Electric Co.'s St. Johns office, which position he resigned in June, 1910, to become postmaster. Mr, and Mrs. Moualian have had seven childreu, of which three are living. Ed. F. and Will H. are employed in Portland, and Mrs. C. II. Thay er is chief clerk in the St. Johns postoffice. Among those present at the re ception were Mrs. Nancy Caples, Mrs. A. V, Learned, Mrs. J. B. Yeon, Mrs. J. P. Wrinkle, Mr. and Mrs. D. C. Hoyt, Mrs. John Poff, John Mock, Mrs. J. C. Scott, Mrs. S. C. Beach, Mrs. M. A. Massy, and Mr. and Mrs. Frank A. Smith, all of whom were either residents of St. Johns and the peninsula at the coming of the Monahans or ar rived soon after. These old-timers bad an enjoyable hour talking of the early days before St. Johns "woke up." Mrs. G. M. Hall, assisted by Mrs. W. S, Plowman, Mrs. E. S. Harrington, Mrs. Maud Hall, Mrs. Ella Kilkenny, and the Misses Lillie Sizemore, Laura Graden, Oneta Plasket, Ina Peterson, Gladys Bredeson, Nellie Graden and Goldie Marcy, served the refreshments, and Leon Peter son and bis orchestra furnished music. Editor Review: I noticed a com munication in last week's Review in which complaint was made about the crowiug of game roosters. Now I have a couple of them myself, aud may be the party the writer was nlludiug to. I admit that my roost ers do crow sometimes. When I got them I tried to get cocks that did not crow, but was told that the crowless ones were nil dead. I then tried to get ones having the most musical and melodious vocal organs, and until tltc comtnuuica tion nppcarcd, believed I was sue ccssful in securing the most tuucfu roosters in St. Johns. In these days of phonographs and selfplay iug pianos, the roosters must ex crt themselves to be heard, aud it may be that the voices of my cocks nave become n little cracked in consequence. Cocks hnve crowed since the time of Peter of old, and t . it docs seem u shame to suppress tiiem now. in the early morning Hours is wlicu tltc roosters get iu their best work, and in olden times they did confine themselves to those hours principally, and do so yet, believe, in rural districts. But in cities and towns, where bustle aud contusion is kept up until late at night, the roosters do not ect much chance to sleep, and have to snatch u imp wlicu an opportunity oilers. It is, therefore, not to be wondered at thnt they get a bit off on the crowing hours. They now crow as soon ns they get awake, whether it is day or night. I am quite sorry to nave my neighbors disturbed by the crowiug of my cocks, but I can not induce tliein to nuit. Perhaps if Burbnnk turns his attention to the poultry line he may produce crow loss roosters, but until that time comes it is safe to presume that roosters will crow iu spile of the discomforts to humanity. A Cock Owner. Nat'l W.C.T.U. Convention 1 here will be one entire week of W. C. T. U. work iu the sessions of the Nutional Convention begin ning October 19th. Every state iu the Union will be represented. Some 1500 White Kibboticrs will be guests of our great and beautiful Oregon. Multnomah county will, without doubt, entertain these distinguished guests royally. Multnomah county local unions have planned n mem bership campaign. Three, days this week the members are inakintr a house to house canvass, telllmr the wonderful storv of the (Trent achievements of this great body of women. 1 ney expect to roll up a new membership of many hundreds. in tact, they have set their high water mark at 2000, They espe cially desire to appeal to the young womanhood of the county. Young women, your influence Is u mighty power for good or ill. We pray you belt this mighty power onto the driving wheel of a righteous life. Don the white ribbon, the cnsignla of temjerance and a white life for two. Take a stand for right con ditions. The only test of mem bership Is the taking of the pledge of total abstinence and payment of one dollar per year dues. Where can any man or woman invest one dollar per year, with ns sure n guar antee of compound interest. Help to roll up the largest county increase of members on record, that Multno mah county may win the Frances Willard prize banner, and better still, help us plant the white ribbon banner of temperance and purity in hundreds ol homes, where the rally cry will be heard clear and loud.

Calico Ball The Ladies' Auxiliary of the Commercial club will give a Calico Ball this evening in the M. W. A. hall to the members of the club. This promises to be a most enjoy able event. All members of the club and auxiliary are expected to be in attendance, as well as the wives or sweethearts of the former. Any community that wants to increase its numbers and business and promote its general welfare along the line of material com mercial improvement, must first of all reach the people it wants to get. Towns aud cities all over the coun try are today expending large sums of money to bring themselves to the favorable notice aud attention of persons whom they hope to Interest, and influence them to locate or in vest, or both, In their locality. This is done by advertising through the public press, and specially pre pared literature Primarily, there- tore, the tirst great purpose is to reach the people it is hoped to get, aud this method has to be conducted at long range: corrcs poudcucc follows, the particular advantages and opportunities nrc set forth, aud in rare occasional instances some of the parties may make the trip, generally iu cornice tion with some other matter, and look the ground over. As stated, this is the general mode of pro ecu tire, unless, as in some cases where there nrc ample funds avail ablc,a special representative goes to where these prospective people nrc and personally presents the claims of the place he represents. It will uc seen, therefore, that this means a considerable expenditure of time, money and effort. Instead of having to go through the above described or similar pro cess, there comes to bt. Johns n most favorable and unusual oppor tunity ot getting the full benefit of these final aud practical results, aud In a large measure brought right to our door. As we have said, the first thing is to find the people and then make the appeal to them. With the coming of the Regatta the people will come to us, will be right here on our shores, aud lining our water front and hill sides and thronging our city. They will be numbered by thousands, attracted by the spirited races which will take place on the line water course in trout ot the city, it means something It means a creat deal,' u very great deal, to have alt these people hailing from all sec tions of the Union come to St. Johns, where they will sec our magnificent water location, oil two navigable streams, the unexcelled railroad facilities, represented by the ter minals of the Hill and Harriman transcontinental systems, with the Milwaukie line exerting every re source to gain an entrance to our harbor; to observe aud consider the ndustrial field here presented for manufacturing opportunities, to witness a good, up-to-date home community; iu short, to see aud know for themselves, our advan tages, facilities and conveniences. Can any one estimate iu dollars and cents what such a thing means to us if we properly appreciate it, and which we are going to dor It is the favored and timely opportunity of a life time aud St. Johns will be sure to embrace it. With the Re gatta, the Sweet Pea Show and the Industrial Exhibit, we shall be able to present a finely featured program and attraction that is bound to make a favorable and asting impression, The details are now being carefully worked out by the Commercial club, which has systematically divided up the work and assigned it to the different se eded committees. One thing more we should not forget, and that is, that in all prob ability it means that the Regatta will become a fixed and permanent feature that will hereafter regularly take place at St. Johns every year. A Pleasant Surprise A merry crowd of about seventy young people surprised Miss Clara Nelson at her home on North Kdl- son street last Friday night. The evening was pleasantly spent with music and progressive games. Dainty refreshments were served iu a unique way, and the guests de parted at a late hour, feeling that the time had passed all too quickly. Among those present were Misses Gertrude and Jennie Negstad, Georgiana Hayes, Clara Nelson, Florence Jackson, Ruth Cauright and Valore Chambers; Messrs. Har ry Eagan, Arthur Carlson, Conrad Negstad, M, Peterson, Harold Sim mons, Arvid Dabl, Theodore Nel son, George Jackson and Henry Holhngswortb. When big timbers are wanted, Oregon forests are called upon to supply them. Two big spars 70 feet long and 26 inches in diameter are now wanted to complete a dredge on the Panama canal and the Washi ngton officials directing the work have asked Oregon timbermen to furnish them. All members surrounded the board at the regular meeting of the city council Tuesday with Mayor Muck presiding. A petition was presented for the improvement of Hartman street between Seneca and Central avenue, and n resolution directing the engineer to prepare the neces sary data for said improvement was adopted an motion of Alderman Valentine. Three petitions containing about 180 names was presented under the following caption: "We, the un- derslgucd citizens and water users ot the city ot bt. joints, believing that the power of regulating the price of all public utilities lies with your honorable body, earnestly aud respectfully ask that proper action be taken by you to reduce the price of water to consumers. The price charged Is unreasonable, excessive and burdensome to the consumer, and we do not believe that the wa ter company has the right to the unreasonable charges now exacted. Further, we arc of the opinion that the exorbitant price 011 water is the very greatest handicap to the pro grcss of St. Johns. Prompt action on your part will be appreciated." City Attorney Stroud stated that the city had the power, nud he be licved the rates exorbitant. He suggested that u committee be np pointed to wait upon the water company and get an expression from it on the subject. On motion of Alderman Hillcr it was decided thnt such committee be appointed, nud on motion of Alderman Hors- man the committee should consist of Aldermen Hillcr, Perrine aud Jennings. Mr. Perrine said that his time was now so fully occupied that he would be unable to serve, and suggested the name of Mr. Horsmau instead, which proved acceptable. uius amounting to -72,000 were allowed 011 motion of Alderman Valentine. The proposed improvement of Burlington street from the city hall to Bradford street was taken up. It was lounu that the cost was too ex cessive for some of the property under the hlty per Cent, dispcusn tion, aud the petition was referred back to ascertain If they would not sign waivers up to too per cent, of the valuation ot their properties. If this was done the dads thought they could see their way clear to pay any balance remaining. 1 he improvement of Edison street from Richmond to Burlington was accepted by the council. Alderman Horsmau made n mo tion that the city attorney look up the telephone franchise and see if the company was not exceeding the rates specified in their franchise; carried. Somewhat Different In Denver yesterday, it snowed from midnight until two iu the afternoon. The fall was general all over Colorado, and at Colorado Springs the storm developed into the worst blizzard of the year. Heavy overcoats were necessary to comfort iu the chill atmosphere of the Colorado storm. This May day in Oregon was dif ferent. There was perfume of flowers in the air, and the hum of bees in the doorway. The butter cups were in the bud, and the clo ver advancing to the bloom. The roses were abloom, and their blushes in the goldeu sunshine adorned the nature that touched aud tiuted them into beauty. The robins and larks chorused in the tree top aud mayday zephyrs laden with the perfume of wild blossoms kissed maiden cheeks and toyed with golden locks. It was diifereut in Oregon.

Johns has taken the lead as usual. The clipping was kindly naniied to us by Mr. Monahan: I recently saw n statement that Mrs.R. B Loggius, of Columbia, lexas, had made a suggestion that the Sunday preceding Mothers' day be set opart lor Fathers' day. Wait ing to see if some one would not reply to it, aud not seeing anything iu the paper about it, I thought it about time that some one from St. Johns said something iu behalf of what our noble women have done toward giving the fathers a place 011 the Calendar. I sjicak of Mrs. G. M. Hall, who, on the first Sun day after Clirlstmasof last year, had n program of the children in honor of the lathers of our laud. It was attended by the mayor, some of the council, the Grand Army of this place nud n number oi prominent citizens. They listened attentively to an address delivered by ex-Senator Beach, followed by Rev. Guv Stover inn .sermon at the Evangelical church. I feel as thoituh one who had devoted so much of her time to odvauclng the interest of our town and eople and the Interest of the Evangelical church, of which she is a devoted member, should have recognition from her church nnd town.
