Out of tho fryimr tmn into tho
fire is that what the people of
St. Johns havo dono in electing
an almost entirely new council.
Some good work has been dono
in tho matter of changes, which
t nnncarcd was the only way to
do it.lnit was that tho only thing
tho peonlo expected of the new
council? Not by any means, for
it was expected that they would
nractico stricter economy, and
not throw tho taxpayers' money
to tho winds, or in such a way
that it would only benefit some
singlo persons or a very few, or
to accommodato a few swell
heads, at tho expense of tho
common taxpayer, Two such
measures aro now before the
council. Ono is tho water ques
tion, and the other is the Wil
lamette boulevard. In the lat
ter, or tho boulevard case, if it
is true that tho council is paying
$180 of tho people's money out
on that farce to appeal a case to
tho Supremo Court, for a case
that docs not belong there at all,
and is a case that the council
nnd tho peonlo should decide,
for tho records bIiow thnt in tho
neighborhood of Buchanan, Polk
and Tvler streets, whore tho
greatest contention is on the
boulevard, tho first subdivision
provided for a CO foot street, and
tho second subdivision some
years later on the opposite side
of tho street provides for a 100
foot streot, which now leaves the
streot 80 feet wido. Now if tho
people of St. Johns want tho
street to bo 100 feet in width, all
there is to do is for tho council
to condemn tho strip and pay for
it, nnd widen it out to that width,
and snvo the $180 of tho ueople's
money. Randolph Gradon.
