Matters of Importance
Receive Attention
All members were present at
the rcRulur nicotinic of the city
council Tuesday evening with
tho exception of Aldermen Wal
dref und Wilcox.
A petition for nn arc light ut
the corner of East Richmond and
Seneca streets was referred to
the water and light committee.
County Assessor Heed directed
the attention of the council to
tho fact that under the provis
ions of a recent law tho tax levy
for the city of St. Johns, along
with other districts, must be in
the hands of tho Assessor not
later than December 1st of each
year, and for greater conven
ience to his office, requested that
same be placed in his hands by
November 1st, if possible.
A claim of $50 as retaining
fee of the defense on tho Wil
lamette boulevard case now
pending in the Supreme Court
was presented by Attorney H.
E. Collier and ordered piiid by
tho council.
The Portland Woolen Mills Co.
asked that necessary repairs be
made on Crawford street north
of Pittsburg street, claiming
that tho same was almost impas
sible during rainy weather.
Matter was referred to the city
engineer for recommendation.
Chief of Police Allen recom
mended that tho system of red
light police calls bo made more
Senornl throughout the city and
oxes for such calls bo installed
ut various places in the city.
Referred to the health and police
Tho city engineer reported
that tho rock now being taken
'from tho Whitwood quarry by
the lessees was all from tho land
owned by tho: city. Tho'city 'at
torney, who had been directed
to investigate tho status of the
c'ty's interest in reference to
quarry mntterB, asked for and
was granted further time in
which to make a more thorough
investigation of conditions.
An ordinanca regulating the
liquor trafllc with reference to
carrying samo into places of
amusement, cigar stores, etc.,
passed first reading.
A remonstrance of about 05
per cent of the property inter
ested in tho improvement of
East Polk street oetween Fes
senden street and St. Johns
Heights Addition was unani
mously rejected, Considerable
time of the council has been
taken up each session for some
time past in listening to objec
tions to the improvement of this
street. Alderman Vincent stat
ed that in spite of the large re
monstrance ho had been given
to understand that only five
property owners objecting really
reside on tho street, and in ab
sence of proof to tho contrary,
ho favored pushing the improve
ment through. Alderman Gar
lick believed that the improve
ment was highly important ow
ing to the fact that several ponds
of stagnant water were created
in the street every year during
tho rainy season, and improve
ment seemed to bo tho only
method to effect n permanent
cure. Alderman Wright favor
ed improvement becauso the
street was rather thickly popu
lated and that more people get
off the cars at that street than
any other outside the Jersay
street stop, and in winter time
they were compelled to travel
through the mud and slush al
' most to their shoe tons in effect
ing the journey to their homes.
Aldermen Martin and Munson
also believed the improvement
vitallv necessary. An ordinance
providing the time and manner
01 lis improvement, uy aiue
walk and grade was unanimous
ly passed.
A resolution for the improve
ment of Central avenue between
Buchanan and John streets by
sidewalk and grade was unanU
mouslv adonted. as was also a
resolution providing for the hard
surface improvement of Craw
ford street between Burlington
and Pittsburg streets.
The city recorder was granted
a ten days' vacation.
It was decided that the Port
land Railway, Light and Power
Co. be notified to cut down the
weeds on its right of way on
Fpssnnden street.
Rills amounting to $540.28. the
greater portion of which was for

Tribute to Street Car Men

lOlH.-Editor St. Johns Review:
Much is being written regarding
tho Pacific Coast States, espe
cially of Oregon and her wonder
ful climate. Returning tourists
are universally impressed with
tho varied resources of the coun
try and with tho thrift and en
terprise of tho larger cities.
Good impressions lormcu uy
visitors depend upon much out
side of whut nnturo has done
for that section, and among the
most deserving subjects for
complimentary mention I wish
to speak a w,orcl ot commendation
for the people' who have first
care of tho stranger within your
gut 03. I rofcr to those engaged
m tho passenger transportation
business, particularly of the
street car trainmen.

Portland and Sound cities 1 had
occasion to patronize tho street
cars n great deal and can truth-

I urn sure that no other city or
street railway system in the
United States can boast of as
efficient a body of employes as
is to bo found in .Portland, ure-
gon, nnd particularly on ine at.
Johns cars.
Owing to ago and physical in
firmities 1 pm'hnps required more
attention than the ordinary
traveler, and in no case could a
member of my own family have
licen moruaoucuuua iur my cum
fort and welfare. There was a
marked contrast in tho service
rendered in Portland and Seattle,
much to the credit of the first

In the World of Fashion
able Dress
Perhaps the prevailing fond
ness for the one piece dress enn
best be explained by its general
becomlngness and the youthful
ncss it imparts to tho wearer.
Be that ns it may, however, you
see these appealing.simple frocks
everywhere worn by smart wo
men who are known to have re
fined taste in dressing.
It stands to reason that during
the hot and sultry days of sum
mer this modoof dress is practi
cal in the extreme, ns nothing
is better calculated to give com
fort and good service. Natural
ly a great deal denonds upon the
material employed, ns many nn
attractive design is spoiled be
yond recognition through an in
judicious choice of fabrics. But
selecting materials nowadays is
a task of pleasuro amid the pro
fusion of tho lovely stuffs shown
at the shops; not a bit high pric
ed, cither.
Really indispensable is the
casy-to-slin-in dress, during your
vacation in tho country. You
can don it in the morning for
your walk, and bo in perfect
trim for lunch hour, without
having to spend those precious
moments "dressing over." The
first model, 7820, live sizes, 34
to 42, you can mnko effectively
in tiny check voile or albatross,
with whito ratino for" tho trim
mimr sections, etc. Tho other,
7822, the pattern for which also
comes in tlvo sizes, .51 to vi, is
simply dear, in roso linen or
nonlin with the tiniest pearl but-
tops all the way down the front
closing, alio dmerent shades ot
roso color, you know, aro very
strongly favored, but if ono's
complexion is inclined to bo sal
low, it should, of course, bo
