Boosts for High Bridge Here
Mr. Editor of the St. Johns
Review: I noticed an article in
your paper written by Uncle Joe.
It was written in a very quaint,
old fashioned way, but tho plat
of his subject is worthy of more
than a passing thought. It ought
to cnirago the most serious
thought of the business men of
a crowing nnd prosperous city.
One of the best things that you
have said in your papor was to
mention a high bridge to span
tho Willamette river at St.
Johns. The ferry was 0. K. in
its day and was a great boon to
tho people. But it is inadequate
to tho travel and is becoming
moro and more so. This is the
era of uutomobiles and air ship9
and if the people of this city
expect to keep up or abreast with
the timo3 they must meet and co
operate with the demands of the
public, whatever the cost. 1 un
derstand that itco3ts the taxpay
ers of this county about twenty-
five thousands dollars a year to
run the ferry, to Bay nothing of
about twenty thousand dollars
for repairs. Give us a high
bridge connecting the East Side
with the West and then extend
An Extensive Tax Drive
The following statement is
issued by Collector of Internal
RevomiOj Milton A. Miller: In
this, as in every other section
of the country, there will bo con
ducted during the next two
months an extensive tax drive
for the collection of delinquent'
sales and other miscellaneous!
taxes, such as the so-called lux
ury tax, the soft drink tax. the
admission tax, tho manufac-i
turer'a tax, tho tax on jewelry
and works of art, nnd the tax
on toilet articles and proprietary
medicines. Reports of laxity on
the part of dealers and other
persons responsbilo for the re
turn and collection of these taxes
have reached the Liureau of in
ternal Kevenue irom many
sources To remedy this condi
tion, a large force of revenue of
ficers will be put in the field,
and'it is expected to result in
the collection of million of dol
lars in delinquent taxes. Infor
mation from the Sales Tax Unit
of tho Bureau of Internal Reve
nue is that many dealers in soft
drinks and ice cream either urc
keeping no record of the amount
of tax collections f rom such sales,

A farewell party was given at
the homeof Murna Beaver Satur
day evening. June 12th, in honor
of Bertha Young, who is going
to make her homo in Corvallis.
The evening was spontin playing
various games, after which de
licious refreshments wore serv
ed. The guests then departed,
wishing Miss Young happiness
in her new home.
or fraction th.reof of the amount
for which toilet articles and pro
prictnry medicines are sold, it
is estimated the government is
losing several million dollars an
nuully. The tax is collected by
jmoutis of stumps ranging from .
, to 10 cents, which tho law pro
ivides shall be affixed by the
dealer, and cancelled, It is the

and effective a campaign as pos

to justice willful violatots, ami

chants and business men who
honestly are endeavoring to com

My nuto 'tis of thee, short
road to poverty, of thee I chant.
I blew a pile of dough oik you
three years ago; now'you re
I fuse to go, or won't or can't.
(Thru town and countryside you
were my joy nnd pride, a happy
! day. I loved tho gaudy hue,
,tho nice white tires new, but
you're down and out lor true, in
every way. To thee.old rattlehox,
came many bumps nnd knocks,
for thee I grieve. Badly tho
top is torn, frayed are the seats
and worn: tho whooping cough
affects thy horn, I do believe.
Thy perfume swells the breeze,
while good folks choke and
wheeze as we pass. by. I paid
for then a price, 'twould buy a
mansion twice; now everybody's
yelling "ice" I wonder why?
Thy motor has the grip, thy
spark plug has tho pip and woe
is thine. 1, too, have juffered
chills, fatigue nnd kindred ills,
endeavoring to pay my bills,
since thou wcrt mine. Gone is
my bank roll now, no moro
'twould cnoko a cow, as once
before. Yet. if 1 had the mon.
so help mo Johnamen, I'd buy
n car again and speed some more.

struck the driver, on tho head
with some instrument, killinir
him, and tho two then threw
tho hotly off the Oregon City
bridge whore it wns recovered
Inst Sunday. Tho crime wns
committed, according to tho con
fession, for tho purpose of se
curing the dead man's auto. Tho
murderers for tho past three
months have resided on Polk
street, where they had secured
rooms. rney -nati vcen em
ployed at the Cooperage plant
and apparently had boon leading
decent lives. Brako was aged
about 20 years and Mooro 11),
and they came hero from tho East.
Heyond that littlo or nothing is
yet known concerning them.
Their apprehension was brought
about throuirlt a young adv
friend of IJrnko, who he took out
riding in his ill gotten car
the following day, and who
noticed the blood stains still re
maining in tho car. Tho police
department nlso did splendid
work. The not was a dastardly
one and no doubt a full measure
of punishment will be dealt out
to tho perpetrators. In a later
confession Moore assumes re
sponsibility for the crime.
Tuesday of last week Mrs. N
Campbell was hostess to tho I'y

of improved Study, nnd it was
wonderful to seo tiny children
five to ton years old who had
studied from fivo months to one
year do problems that grownups
who hnd studied music for years
could not do. Transposition
strikes terror into tho hearts of
most musicians, but one littlo
boy transposed his picco in any
major or minor tho audience
called, which was littlo short of
marvelous. Mrs. Hnwlinson
used tho most difficult combina
tion of rhythms she could pos
sible find nnd tho children de
fined them without one mistake.
