COUNCL MEETS 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 $85. 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. ftt,Mi UM m yur wr Maple Leaf Party Miss Blanche Edlefsen enter tained in a delightful manner with a maple leaf party at her home on Saturday evening in honor of her friend.

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.

Best line of fancy candies The St. Johns Pharmacy. at 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 Bureau. Marks for Schemers Oregon Industry nnd thrlft.lt 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 Register. 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 in tho dairy section, and mnk Ing up a full and complete re port as to tno points ot excel lence possessed by each animnl. 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 mer. Making Good Progress 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.

HIGH SCHOI Incidents of High School Interestingly Told The new settlers nt High 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 duce. Tho "farmers" then nr rnnged themselves in a double file and marched to tho enfetcra, where they were served with sandwiches, pumpkin pic, apples and cider.

THE LIBRARY Interesting Notes for the Library Patrons Hours 12-5:30: 7-9: Sundays. 2:30-5:30. It is especially desirable in the evenings to keen the library quiet for adult readers and students. For this renson chil dren under twelve aro requested to exchange their books in the afternoons and not to visit the library 111 the evcnlncs unless nttended by their parentB or other ndults. Books received: Cantlle nnd Jones Sun Ynt Sen nnd the Awnkcning of China. "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.
