and it is to, be hoped that one
may bo secured.

The proposed new franchisoqf
tho United Railways Company
was presented to the council
Friday and considered and or
dered published. This measuro
provides that the company shall
relinquish all its old franchises
and its rights and consolidate
them into ono grant, to cover
only the commercial tracks of
the company. (Jhiet among the
tracks to bo relinquished is that
on Stark from Front to Twelfth.
The company retains its freight
tracks on Macadam road in bouth
Portland. Front street, Twelfth
street from Stark to Pettygrove,
and thenco to tho city limits,
but no passenger service what
ever will be maintained on them.
This new franchise is the out
come of the revocation of the
franchise of the company by the
County Commissioners on tho
Linnton road, which prevents
the operation of an interurban
passenger service over this line.

Another City Organized
Another city hns been Incor
porated in Multnomnh county,
even within the limits of St.
Johns. For two months the
pupils of Room 15, Central
School, have been conducting
regular city affairs. A charter
was drafted, based upon tho St.
Johns' charter; a town meeting
was held, and tho charter dis
cussed and adopted. A general
election resulted inn wise choice
of city otlicinls, who wcro duly
sworn in office.
Mayor Howard presides in a
dignified manner at all council
meetings, which nro held from
8:30 to to 9 on Friday mornings.
At his right hand sits Recorder
Stone, a very busy mnn, who re
cords all proceedings in his Bys
temntic way. At tho loft sits
the over watchful Attorney IKIl
ton, ready to quoto tho charter
or Roberts' Rules of Order,
when the legality of proceedings
is in doubt. In stately array
sit tho Councilmcn Ilirsh of
tho first ward (row of scats),
Mathcson of tho second wnrd,
Vinson of tho third wnrd, Har
tlo of tho fourth ward. Toole of
tho fifth wnrd, Oeschgcr of tho
sixth ward, and Day of tho city
at large.
Tho city treasurer, Vincent,
hns opened a bank account nnd
has gathered in tho sum of
$17.29 in pennies, dimes, etc.,
thus originating n pupils' sav
ing account in St. Johns. Each
depositor is given a folder, re
cording his savings, nnd four
duplicates aro kept by city
Tho Chiof of Police. Garry
Smith, has two assistants, Clark
and Robertson, serving as cap
tains, each with ono assistant
as leader of lines.
Tho City Engineer, Beden,
finda so much to do, it will ho
necessary for him to havo an as
sistant. Tho attendance at all
public meetings and regular ses
sions has increased since City
Physicinn Caldwell has had
charge of the health depart
ment. A broad knowledge in
general has been gained from
thq reference hooka in charge of
City Librarian Brock and hor
assisted Evans. Tho official
scriho, Schrooder, is over alert,
and nothing is ever omitted in
the city records. Reporter,

Community Xmas Tree
There is a movement under
way to have a Community
Christmas tree in St. Johns.
The plan is new, but wo believe
it is n good one. There is to be
n tree erected on the Btrcct, if it
meets with the approval of tho
city council. If the weather is
favorable the program will bo In
the open, if not a hall is to be
provided commensurnte with the
needs. It will be nn excellent
opportunity to have a general
community "Get-together." Ev
ery one, both as individuals nnd
organizations, can participate.
Mrs. (J. M. Hall has been elect
ed chairman of the general com
mittee which is to meet nt her
home, -115 South Jersey street,
Friday, November 27th, nt 7 p.
m. Tho appointing of com
mittees nnd working out of de
tails will bo a part of the work
for F riday ovening. Tho invitn
Hon is to ench, and every or
ganization in the city to have a
representative in this meeting.
There aro many needy people
in our own city; why scatter our
efforts elsewhere? What wo
havo to glvo can in this way ho
more wisely dispensed. This
movo will bo a help to tho busi
ness men who nro almost harass
ed at this season of tho year.
Any claims mado upon them can
ho referred to tho committee and
enred for in n concerted manner.
Dofinito plans will bo rendv for
tho Review next week.
