The St. Johns school board is
to be congratulated upon the en
terprise and public spiritedness
displayed in securing more play
ground for the pupils at the Cen
tral school. It was an aupsicious
time to make the purchase of
another block of ground, and it
was wisdom to acquire it. Now
if the public would manifest the
same interest in securing a pub

The width of Willamette boul
evard will bu definitely decided
by the Supremo Court, Whether
it is decided to bo 100 or 80 feet
wide, the probabilities are that
the city of St. Johns will novel
use over 80 feet of it for street
purposes. If it is made 100 feet
wide it is extremely likely that
the property owners may lie per
mittod to enjoy the use of 20 foe
of it for many years to come ami
yet do relieved oi taxation on
that much ground. Eighty fee
is fully as much as can bu im
proved and utilized. The Su
promo Court decision will only
decide what width the city can
claim for street purposes.
