Matters of Importance
Receive Attention
All members were present nt
the regular meeting of the city
council Tuesday evening, with
Mayor Vincent presiding.
A petition for the installation
of a fire hydrant at the corner
of Powers street and Oregonian
avenue was referred to the
water and light committee.
The committee on securing
nrices on a motorcycle or auto
mobile that may be installed for
use of tho police department was
not ready to make report, and
on- motion of Councilman Wal-
dref they were given indefinite
time to rcnort.
Councilman Graden of the
water and light committee
recommended the installation
of an arc light at tho corner of
Scott avenue and East Rich
mond street, but tho matter
was held over for further inves
tigation. Councilman Davis reported
that the approach to tho city
dock needed renewing, and tho
engineer was directed to have
samo placed in proper condition.
Tho recorder was directed to
advertiso for bids on rewiring
at tho ferry slip.
Reports of tho city recorder,
city treasurer and chief of police
were read and accepted. The
treasurer's report showed over
$8,000 in thafcenernl fund.
Bills amounting to $1097.03
wore allowed, all voting yes
with tho exception of Council
man Graden, who objected to
paying $35 for destroying bees
belonging to S. II. Greene by a
weed fire several weeks ago.
He contended that tho amount
was exorbitant. Four scaps of
bees, a couple of empty hives,
some . fonco and a shed over the
hives, besides tho'honoy con
tained therein wore tho items
for which pay was asked. Tho
bill presented was for $G1, and
tho council allowed the sum of
The following bids were re
ceived on installing bathing ap
paratus in tho firemen's room:
J. B. Fletcher, $91.55: J. J. Mc
Cari, $114; Gilbort Overstreet,
$87.50. Tho bid of tho latter be-
Ing tho lowest, ho was awarded
the contract.
Improvement bonds totalling
$26,016.9-1 were bid for at par
and accrued interest by tho First
National and Peninsula National
Banks of St. Johns, each bidding
for a portion of tho bonds. Tho
bids were accepted.
An ordinanco requiring regis
ters, to be kept at hotels, room
ing houses, etc., for the purpose
of V keeping records of guests,
was passed, as was also an or
dinance prohibiting tho removnl
of dead bodies from St. Johns
without tho consent of relatives
or friends.
?An ordinance prohibiting pub
lie work on the streets on Sun
day without the consent of the
city council passed first and sec
ond readings and was held over
for slight alteration.
A resolution providing for tho
improvement of Columbia boule
vard between Jersey and Daw
son streets with standard con
crete paving was adopted.
Tho matter of rebate on water
rates was discussed to some ex
tent, and tho city attorney re
marked that ho had had a con
ference with Commissioner
Atchison in this regard, and he
stated that the matter of rebate
was not embodied in the Com
mission's ruling; that it was a
matter between the consumer
and the water company to solve.
All teachers in Multnomah
county have been offered assist
ance from the University of Ore
gon in covering the required
work from the new State Read
ing List, the offer having just
been received at the office of
County Supt. of Schools, A. P.
Armstrong, The superintend
ent, under section 24 of the school
laws of Oregon for 1913, may
not register any teacher until he
is satisfied that at least one of
the State Reading List books
has been covered. The state
university suggests that because
of pressure of other work,
county superintendents may find
supervision of this sort difficult.
It has therefore prepared study
helps, and is ready to assist the
superintendent and the teachers
in any of several ways.

tho stranger spoke to you. Dis
respectfully, you say? Called
you "Kiddo!" Well, daughter,
perhaps tho man thought you
answered to tho nnmo of "Kid
do." You seo he only arrived
here this morning. Ho hap-
noned to notice you at the depot
when ho got off tho train. Yes,
know you only went to tno
depot to soo If any of tho girls
had gotten back from the city.
And then you say no nappenea
to bo standing on tho hotel
porch this afternoon when you
wont to tno postomee. i Know,
of course, you could hardly help
glancing in his direction when
vou went by, and when you and
Flossy Fay passed that way
later it wasn't your lauit mat
Floss asked you, loudly enough
for him to hear, if you weren't
sick and tired of living in this
poky old town? So when you
took a walk this evening no saw
Ml 1 - i
you, sauntered alter you anu ai
the corner near tho drug store
ho overtook you and raising his
hat. asked: "What's your hurry,
Kiddo?" And you ran home in
tears to tell your mother how
you had been insulted. Thank
God for that. You're Dad's girl
yet. But don't blame the man.
He knows that there are kiddos
in every town. He meets them
at the denots. He notices them
passing and repassing the hotels
and going to and from tho post-
offices, and ho always sees them
with Flossies. But those men
will never speak to the small
town girls who mind their own
business and keep off the streets.
Now tomorrow if you help
mother with the preserving, not
a soul will harm you. So dry
your eyesno, not the powder
rag use cold water and a soil
towel. That's right, smile!"

Dangerous Amendment
Among tho dangerous amend
ments to the constitution that
are found among the 29 meas
ures on the Oregon ballot is one
proposing to take over in the
name of the state all lands be
tween high and low water on
navigable streams. The amend
ment proposes to take over the
beds of navigable streams at
"bankfull stage" or the llood
stage of all such streamB or tidal
estuaries, on which dro now
erected many industries and log
ging booms.
That this amendment would
unsettle the titles to some of the
crcatest and most valuable in
dustrial properties in the state
is easy to be seen. It would in
volve such properties in litiga
tion nnd create another commiB
Bion in every county and city to
whom all industries on nnvlg
able streams would bo under
obligation for their existence.
An immense amount of litiga
tion would follow and in the
meantime capital would not in
vest in industries thus affected.
This is ono of many political
devices to create positions nnd
make business for tho unem
ployed lawyers in all cities on
navigable streams.
Capital seeking investment in
industries on navigable waters
would simply bo diverted from
Oregon to the north banks of
the Columbia river or elsewhere
to avoid the entanglements of
tho law and get more secure
basis for investment.
The amendment not only des
troys tho right of access to the
navigable streams on tho part
of tho upland owner which he
now has, but it would compel
tho promoters of any industry
seeing a location on such wntcrs
to open negotiations with a local
body of politicians boforo pur
chasing a site for an industry.
This amendment should go into
the ruck with others that are
all calculated to make it difficult
and dangerous to establish now
industries at tho very place
where wo should have tliem,
whero rail and water transporta
tion meet.-- Industrial Ncwh
Marks for Schemers
Oregon Industry nnd
seems, are tho particular mnrks
against which tlio schemers and
tho tinkercrs are directing their
shafts this Fall. Tho man who
Is trying to mnko n living for
himself and his family and to
put a little money by in the bank
for n rainy doy iB threatened
with a universal, eight hour law
that will not permit even his
children to work more than eight
hours out of tho twenty-four. If
he is a farmer this law, if It is
approved by the people In No
vember, will mean that ho will
either have to quit business or
reduco his operations to tho
point whero ho can do every
thing himself.
As if this were not enough,
we aro asked to vote on a law to
provide work at state expense
for all tho unemployed of every
state and of every clime. If it
should bo enacted tho brake
beams and the bumpers and the
car tops of every train coming
into tho state would bo jammed
with floaters rushing in to get a
nice, soft job at the state's ex
pense. The word would go out
far and wide that all that was
necessary to tide over tho win
ter was to get to Oregon, wero
tho state furnised a job for
everybody. The problem of the
unemployed of all tho other
states would be solved, and Ore
gon would be the goat. Eugene
A movement has been started
by the Oregon Jersey Cattle
Club to Induce the government,
through the Bureau of Animal
Industry, to send three or four
experts into this state to assist
in tho work of inspecting the
herds as a safeguard against
tuberculosis. Under a state law
inspection of cattle for indica
tions of disease has expanded all
over the state, but the great in
crease in the size and number
of the herds is rapidly overtax
ing the state force. All the re
gistered herds of Jerseys in the
state are said to be entirely
healthy at the present time and
it is desired, by more thorough
inspection, to avoid all pos
sibility of infection.
Some men would not caro to
be judged by the letters they
wrote during their courtship.
Fair Better Than Ever
Tho past week has seen the
wlndup of practically all the
county fairs to bo held in the
state this season. More than
three ouartors of the counties in
tho stnto have had an exhibit of
some sort "and in every instance
the quality of tho products
shown has been fully up to
grade, and the staging of same
has been better than ever. At
the state fair at Salem last week
there wns probably the most
notable collection ot Oregon
fruits, grains, vegetables, live
stock and manufactured articles
that has ever been shown at one
time in Oregon. Horses, cattle,
swine, poultry, sheep and pet
stock of all kinds were exhibited
bv practically overy community
in the state, and the quality and
finish of tho animals has never
been cqunllcd. One of tho un
usual features of the state fair
wbb the boyB' camp at which
were quartered the prize win
ners in the various county
garden contests. Under the
direction of Prof. W. A. Bnrr,
of the Oregon Agricultural Col
lege, these boyB gave an exhibi
tion of stock judging, taking as
subjects tho prize winning cows

giving his reasons for tho de
cision: also testing the milk for
butter fat and purity. These
reports were passed upon by the
expert judgeB of tho dairy sec
tion of tho fair. The final prize
winners in the garden contest
will receive as a reward one
week's free trip to tho oxposl.
tion at San Frnncisco next sum

Preliminary work on tho West
er Cooperage plnrjt nenr tho dry
dock is progressing right along.
The dredging and filling hnb
taken longer than wns at first
anticipated, nnd it will probably
bo two or three weeks yet be
fore this part of the work is
completed. Work is going on
night and day, and an immense
fill Is being made, and a good
doptli dredged for tho river boats
to land. Hall a dozen or moro
tennis havo been ndded this
week In placing tho fill in tho
proper condition for construc
tion. Tho work of erecting tho
buildings will begin boforo tho
month is out, nnd it will bo
pushed along ns vigorously as
possible. The new plant will bo
a most valuable acquisition to
tho city's industries, and St.
Johns was most fortunnto in se
curing it. The headquarters of
tho company and main offices
will be nt the plant when

School were entertained last
Friday uvening at the "James
John Roundup nnd Agricultural
Show." The gymnasium was
appropriately decorated with
maple leaves, corn stalks, nnd J
Full products. Each of the four
corners of the room was desig
nated by a name of one of the
four classes. This arrangement
served to divide the students
into four sections, and each class
acted as a contesting team in
the following events:
Standing brond grin.
High vocal jump.
Wheelbarrow race.
Three legged race.
Best class yell.
Peanut race.
Eating contest.
Best class stunt.
When the finnl ocore was reck
oned, It was found that the
Freshmen were the winners of
the trophy, which wns an en
graved tin cup, decorated with
tho High School colors. Prizes
wore awarded to tho two best
costumed "fnrmers," and nlso
for tho best exhibit of farm pro

One has only to visit the three

tho fact that they handle only

Interesting Notes for the

It is especially desirable in the
evenings to keen the library
quiet for adult readers and
students. For this renson chil

Sen nnd the Awnkcning of
"It was in the autumn of 1896
that the world first heard of Dr.
Sun Ynt Sen. A Chinese refu
gee had been kidnapped kid
napped in London; and English
men rubbed their eyes as they
read how ho had been seized In
broad daylight and wns being
held n prisoner in the Chinese
embassy, his liberty denied him,
his very life in danger. Who
does not remember the Bcnsation
the story caused, tho tense ex
citement us to the man's fate,
the wild conjectures as to tho
mode of Ills delivery? For a
day or bo tho town the whole
country, talked of little else.
And then, suddenly, Britain in
tervened! Within u few days
Sun wns released. Almost as
speedily, for tho excitement soon
subsided, he was forgotten.
But a decade and a half later
the public recalled tho strange
event. I'or, on December 29,
1911, they read tho message tell
ing tho world that this samu
refugee that had been hunted
out of his own land nnd pursued
even in England, had lived to
bo proclaimed First President of
tho Chinese Uepublic. What
had happened in the interval to
give him this unique author
ity? How had this man, poor,
obscure, unaided, achieved so
wonderful nswny over tho count
less millions of Ills fellow Celes
tials, usually deemed tho most
olusivo of mankind? To unswor
these questions so that tho pub
lic mny see Sun Ynt Son nnd tho
Chincso Revolution in their true
perspective, is to describe n
career that, alike for shoer ro
mance nnd historical importance,
has never been surpassed.

"To tho child hundreds of

just as wonderful as .the first
amazement of the Indian at tho

often tho education which teach

these mysteries removes at tho
same time the sense of wonder.
The purpose of this book is to
present the facts 01 tho physical

young people may understand
natural processes, they may still
be able to appreciate what Is
