lie does not consider the penmanship
copybooks all that they should be, and
thinks the vertical system Is a fad that
will be short lived. The small g's and
r's and many of the capitals, are objec
tionable, and letters such as m cannot
be made rapidly, as there is too much
retracing. The superintendent ssys that
the textbook commissioners adopted Ave
different editions of Longfellow's ''Hia

and three editions of ftbakespeare's
"Merchant of Venice," there being little
difference between them.

New pupils, who have never attonded
school, will not be received after Oct. 8,
and parents are requested to observe this
rule. Fupils coming iu at all times of
the year necessitates forming new classes
and primary teacher cannot do this.
II it Is found, after entering, that a fourth,
third, or even a second grude pupil, is
unable to koep up with the work of the
grade In which the pupil has been placed,
ho may be placed In the next lower
grade, but this cannot be done with a
first uradb pupil, so it is necessary to
start them promptly with the rest of the
Parents have never understood the
division of the district between build
ings and have had an idea that there is a
dividing lino between tlie EaHtham and
Barclay buildings. This is not the case
but thete must be a dividing line for dit
forent grados and the division must be
adapted to suit the requirements of each
particular grado. A great percentage of
the primary pupils come from the vicin
ity of the EaHtham building, but of course
parents can readily understand that all
cannot attend the Eastham school.
For this year's work there is a com
plete chanxe in textbooks, except in
grades where books will be completed
during the year. An example is shown
In history, of which there are two
classes. The beginners will use the new
textbook and the class that studied his
tory last year will finish, with the same
book. In the High School astronomy
will be dropped and aoology placed In the
curriculum. A specialty will be made of
Oregon history and geography.
Superintendent Wilcox Is not entirely
nnder covered there will be no trouble
in keeping the.raoms warm and comfort- j
ablu. Another improvement ia taking J
place, lne janitors are putting Justine
on the floor. This ia a preparation
which prevents dust rising when the
floor is swept.
At the Barclay school Saturday after
noon at 2 o'clock, the teachers will hold
a grade meeting for the purpose of dis
cussing school management and outlin
ing school work.
CL'T I TWO III THE CARS
R.J. Hurt, a H. P. Rraltekaan,
Mttt. lVllh a Horrible IsrathK
B. 3. Hart, a brakeman, employed on
the Southern Pacific, was run over by a
freight train, about 10:30 o'clock Tues
day night, on the Milwaukle Hill, and
was instantly killed.
' Hart had been an apprentice brake
man on the line for the past month, and
last night waa his first run as a regular.
On reaching the Milwaukie Hill, after
leaving Portland, the train was tun up
the Incline in two sections.
Just how Hart was. killed was not
known nntil the Inquest Wednesday
night when Brakeman Johnson testified
that Hart tell from the top of a box car
in front of a moving section of the train
and the wheels crushed the life from his
body instantly. He gave one horrible
scream and Johnson gave the engineer a
violent signal for brakes and when the
body was takeu from under the wheels
life was extinct. The coroners jury ren
dered a verdict that deceased came to
his death by accidently falling and being
caught under the wheels of a car of the
S. P. Co., while tlie car was in operation.
Hart was 24 years of age and his people
reside at Crabtree, Linn County. He
was an extra brakeman on the road and
had been out only a few times since pass
ing the student stage. S. O. Hart, a
brother ot the deceased, accompanied
the body to Crabtree, where the inter
ment will take place.

the county clerk's office shows that the
indignation of Mr. Mile? is justified.
There is bo qnestion bnt thst some of
tbe owners whose signatures are at
tached to the petition were ignorant of
the facts. According to tbe official plat
Green Point wa platted and dedicated
to the city March 20, 1889, by Richard
and Ellen Glawpool and Charles and
Kate CalifT and Front street is the only
street in the dedicatiun that runs to the
river. Mr. Miley.l eld a mortgage on a
portion of the tilatxipool property and a,
forecroKUre deed to him was recorded
February 2, 1901. Tbe plat fails to show
that - Jacob Rinearson dedicated any
streets whatever to the city. Abeinotby
street extends add is open only to lots
one in blocks six and seven and the
Miley properly fronting these blocks ia
not a part of Green Point as platted.
The petition follows:
We, tbe undersigned residents and
taxpayers of Green Point, Oregon City,
hereby petition the IIonurn.l C.tv
Council of Oregon City, to cause to be
opened the following streets in Green
Point, Oregon City: Front street from
Moss street to Willamette river; Abox
nethy street from Moss street to Willam
ette river, and the river front road iu
front of blocks 6 and 7, the rigtit of .way
for the river front road having been pur
chased and dedicated by Jacob Rinearson
tor a road from the mouth of Clackamas
river to the month of Abernethy creek.
The above mentioned streets were dedi
cated by R. Glasspool and wife when
plat of Green Point was recorded in the
county court house records and after
wards mortgaged by said Glasspool to
Henry Miley, who acquiied possession,
as he claims, by foreclosure of mortgage,
and who recently fenced said public
highways to prevent people from going;
through. Signed by A. W. Cheney, W,
