The matter of fire apparatus,
which had become n much moot
cd nuestion in St. Johns, is now
settled for a time at least. At
a special mooting of the city
council Saturday evening it was
decided that the city purchase
an auto truck and have the
chemical engine mounted thereon
nt n nrice commote of SSJ85U
The work of transforming the
nu to into u regular fire np
parntus will be done by Messrs.
Lctson and Hose at the Kicli
mond street garage, which in
itself is a matter of some pride
the knowledge that such work
can be done in St. Johns. It is
proposed that two paid firemen
be secured at salaries of $75 and
$60 per month, respectively.
One of them to incidentally give
his attention to keening the ap
paratus in shape, and the other
to serve us janitor at the city
hall. It is also proposed that
tho Bum of $300 annually be con
tributed to the fire department,
instead of $1000 as heretofore.
As $700 will thus be suvod from
the animal appropriation to the
fire department and !?li)U saved
in tho salary of janitor, it makes
a total saving ol 31UU0 annually.
Two firemen at S75 and $60,
respectively, would amount to
$1620, or an additional cost of
$320 per year over what was
previously paid, and given the
city much bettor service. It is
proposed also, later on, to give
tho neonlo of the city an omior
tunity of purchasing a pumping
engine by bond issue. Hut for
the present it is believed that
tho auto truck will serve. The
firemen that formerly served
have expressed satisfaction with
the new addition to the fire
cmiipmcnt. and are reorganizing.
Tho city council has shown that
it can grapple with and solve an
emergency when it arises, and
have done the best they could
do under the circumstances.
Now. since the auto has vir
ttially been secured, it behooves
tho property owners of St. Johns.
in front of whose property the
streets are not improved, to get
busy with petitions ami have all
streets placed in first class con
dition. so that tho greatest sor
vice may bo obtained by use of
the now auto truck.

usually come to those who deserve memories
of pleasant moments. One of the pleasant
est recollections in many a man's life is
when he thinks of the time he started his
first bank account. For doesn't he owe his
independence to-day to THAT start? To
day he has a business of his own, a cozy
home, and a comfortable bank surplus. All
by the great lesson taught by the little bank
account) he once started. Why not benefit
by experiences such as these?

NOTICE TO HOLDERS OF FREE
Game Law Deputies
The Commercial club has
taken up the matter of the im
provement of Richmond street,
between Willamette boulevard
and the river, and intends to
aid the city council in working
out some method whereby it may
he improved this year. 11 is
said that St. Johns ha loxt one
or two good industries becaiiHe
this street had not prcvioiuly
been placed in Urst class con
dition for hauling over, and it
is proposed to not lose any more
on that account. It is said that
the only reason tho Nicoli sash
and door factory now located at
Kenton did not locate on Hrad
ford street wus because Rich
mond street was not placed in
propor condition. Thos. Autzen.
V. S. Lnuthora and W. M.
Tower were appointed a coin
mittce to look up data and as
cortnin if any impediments now
existing in tho way of improve
ment of Richmond street might
not bo surmounted. Tho indus
tries along Bradford street have
been at a disadvantage on ac
count of tho nbsonco of good
strcots leading to the business
section, mid it is high time that
ways and means for bettor road
ways to tho river iront aro pro-
ided. It is 0110 of tho chiof
things that any industrial com
nanv would look at when Book
ing n new location feasible and
adequate menus of ingress and
egress. St. Johns has not pre
viously given as much attention
to this subject as it has do-
served. But it is to bo hopod
that since tho Commercial club
has taken up one street loading
to the water front, that it will
not discontinue its olforts until
a completo syBtom of good roads
have been established so that
manufacturing plants will bo
given incentive to locate hore.
Tho regrotnblo fonturo con
nected with tho purchase of an
auto truck ior lire purposes is
tho displacement ol Mr. D. J,
Horsman as janitor nt tho city
hall. He has served in that
capacity for sovoral yoars in a
capable and satisfactory manner,
is a most worthy citizen, an old
soldier and n genial and highly
respected citizen. As a land
scape artist ho is a genius, and
has kept the grounds surround
ing the city hull in n most at
tractive condition. But in the
now oruer 01 unrigs mo my
council could not, in tho intorost
of economy, see their way cloar
to longer retain him us janitor.
