covering work done by tho police
department, was read and accept
ed. It was decided to increase the
speed limit for autos, motorcy
cles and vehicles from eight
miles per hour to fifteen miles,
and the speed ordinance was or
dered to be amended to meet
with the higher rate of speed

According to Mrs. Southwell's

Mr. Unas. Anderson has pre
sented tho library with a copy of
what has been called "the best
aimed shot at the existing social
system" tho book, "Woman
Under bocialism," by the well
known German writer, August
Bebel. A rev ow of the book by
a St. Johns reader follows:
"Woman Under Socialism" by
August Bebel treats of tho his
tory and future of the compara
tive and general relation of man
and woman in regard to proper
ty, marriage, physique and men
tality. He shows that property
ownership has varied from that
exclusively male to that exclu
sively female: from pure com
munism to absolute monarchy;
marriage from polygamy to poly
andry; from patriarchy to matri
archy; in length from a moment
to a lifetime, and from absolute
individual freedom to total con
trol by the state; physique from
male to female superiority and
mentality the same. He shows
in general thac the sexes have
occupied all positions inter
changeably and that property,
marriage, physique and mentali
ty have varied in all sorts of
ways. .Usually, however, man
has controlled the property, been
the head of the house, had the
best physique and the best brain.
Uusually the few have had much
and the many little. Marriage
has been monogamous, continued
for the greater part of a life
time, has been somehow controll
ed by the state, and has been ac
companied by its looser form,
prostitution. He draws these
conclusions from facts from all
times and all4 parts of the globe,
and has accompanied them with
a wealth of statistics. Concern-

On North Bank Road to
Swift Packing Plant
The North Bank Railway has
granted a special rate of five
cents faro from tho St Johns
dejwt to the Swift packing plant,
Monarch mills and stockyards,
and will carry 150 pounds of
baggage on the fare. This is a
big item for St Johns, as it will
allow those working in tho above
named plants to get to and from
work for five cents, whoro here
toforo it has cost ten cents on
the street cars. Then it shortens
the rido about five miles, as tho
distance from St Johns to tho
territory named is not as far as
it is from Kenton to the same
territory. To get from hero to
Swift's and vicinity it was. nec
essary to take the car ntSt
Johns, go through University
Park and past the Piedmont car
barn: transfer at Mississippi av
enue to tho Kenton car. and, on
arriving at tho latter piace, pay

St. Johns and Lower Peninsular
The St. Johns Commercial Club
has appointed a committee to net
with tho Citv Engineer in plan
ning a driveway from St. Johns
to the packing plant and stock
yards. It is desired by the club
to build a roadway paralleling
the North Bank Railway out as
far as tho Oregon Slough, con
necting witli tho roadway back
of tho Monarch mills and giving
a short, direct route to the Btock
yards and adjacent plants. This
will bo a part of tho main road
leading to the proposed inter
state bridge botween Portland
and Vancouver and will bo of in
estimable help to tho Lower Pen
insular residents. It will also
be of great benefit to tho Tuala
tin Valley district, and stock and
produce can be brought in from
that section by way of tho Ger
mantown and St. Helens roads,
through Whitwood Court, over
tho freo Linnton-St. Johns ferry
and along the now routo- to des
ignation, thus doing away with
tho necessity of passing through
Portland proper, as is now being
done, and shortening tho drive
10 to 15 miles. Oregoninn. Juno
The Prettiest Car
Tho St Johns car decorated
for the rose shower in Portland
ast Friday was undoubtedy the
landsomest and most attractive
car in line. It was trimmed in
avender colors and spruce, and
the ladies who accompanied the
car wore attired in white with
avender trimmings. I he effect
was most beautiful, and yet, once
more, tho judges dodged giving
St. Johns tho first prize. Last
year St. Johns' car was decorat
ed with roses, and tho roso
scheme was carried throughout
but a car decorated with mar
guerites won first prize. This
year it is said that St. Johns wus
denied first prize becauso it was
not decorated with roses. Tho
St. Johns folks had nt least the
satisfaction of hearing many
spectators along the streets ex
claim that St. Johns had much
the prettiest car, and it aroused
more cheering than all tho oth
ers. Thousands 01 roses were
thrown out to tho crowds, and
St. Johns was well advertised.

about 800 men are in the field

A Superb Thoroughfare
That Portland will complete
the hard surfacing of Willamette
boulevard from Patton avenue to
the North Bank bridge before
the summer closes is now assur
ed. A lnrge portion of tho street
is now being hnrdsurfaccd. and
the balance will be started in a
very few weeks. When com
pleted this will nlTord the most
beautiful driveway that could be
imagined. No other driveway
in any place will excel it in scen
ic beauty. That the boulevard
should bo improved through St
Johns is more apparent since
the improvement of the Portland
portion is well under way. The
contrast will bo more noticeable
and bo discreditable to our city.

1 1 a 1
trip over tho boulevard from
Richmond street to Patton avo

beauty of the scenery from the
roadway is most entrancing, and
that Willamette boulevard will
soon become the most popular
driveway on the Coast is beyond
peradventure of doubt. Proper

that was a drug on tho market
a couple of years ago at $-100 and
$500 per lot cannot be purchased
today for less than $3,000. and
there is very little of it on tho
market at any price. It was
only through tho indcfagiblo ef
forts of A. S. Benson and Mr.
Veon that the improvement of il-
lametto boulevard was mado pos
sible at this time. Tho right of
way in widening tho streot nt
places wus most difficult and in
order to secure much of tho prop
erty, Air. lienson was compelled
to buy the land and donate por
tions of it for street purposes.
Now those property owners 'who
were most bitterly opposed to
tho improvement havo become its
most ardent boosters.
Wo also viewed tho proposed
new roadway that cuts off at
Mock's bottom and goes on an
almost straight lino to tho Broad
way bridge. It will cut off about
two miles of distance over tho
way the car line now runs to
Portland, and will be of unsur
passed beauty. It will bo eighty
feet in width, and will be pushed
as rapidly as possible Besides
tho saving in distance, many
of tho stops will bo eliminated.
In connection with tho improve
ment qf WMInmotto boulevard it
will be the making of the Lower
Peninsula. The scenic beauty
of WMInmotto Heights will pule
in comparison, and it will pvent

A Wide Reputation
J. T. Harbin, tho skillful nnd
efficient blacksmith, has worked
up on extensive trado in his line.
Ills shop is located at the corner
of Ivanhoe and Charleston
streets, and it has recently un
dergone substantial repairs.
His reputation for good work
manship nnd rcasonablo prices
has gone forth to such un extent
that business comes to him from
tho Union Meat Co,, Standard
and Union OH companies, from
Linnton, University Park, Kon
ton nnd tho Tunlatin Valley.
His shop is a constant scene of
industry, and lio keeps several
men on tho job mi tho time.
Harbin's blacksmith shop is
quito un institution for St Johns,
and business is on tho increase
steadily. When people come bo
far to get their blacksmithing
done, it surely speaks volumes
for the class 01 work done at
Harbin's blacksmith shop.
