To Sea HI Matter Confined There
On a Serioua Charge. -
The little French poodle belonging
to Nela Beebo, v bo la In Jail for killing
bla brother, Hiram Ileebe, la ' taken
dally to the courtroom to noe Ita ni ea
ter, and the animal Is perfectly con
ented when by Mr. Itoehe'e aid al
the Jail. The old man Is often taken
to the room of the Rlierlff whore he
may enjoy the aunllght. and the little
og alia beside hla master noting er
ery movement, thinking he la to take
him for a walk. The little dog was
brought to thla city about one year
go from California by Mr. Ileebe, and
the latter haa refnaed many sums of
money for him. He will not part with
Im. On the night of the murder many
who had wlahed to purehaae the dog,
aked the old gentleman for the care
of him, aa there was no place provided
for It In the Jail. The old man refused
to even sell him at thla time, thinking
that he could rare for him later. Mrs.
Harry Flemmlng. of Clackamas
Heights, waa given charge of the dog.
In whose possession he la finding ex
cellent care. The dog recelvee hla
regular bath and la taken dally to Jail
to call on his master. The animal hna
been taught many trlcka by Mr. Peebn

The Congregatlnonal church owns
property on the hill and aome day
hopes to build up there out of the aone
of dirt and noise. Taylor street, which
bnta thla property, la now being Im
proved. The nnlghbora own lota that
run to the middle of the street, thua
making the street but 30 feet wide.
In Improving; this street tha effort hat
been made by Council. to deal with
these people and aaaeaa damages
gainst the residence property and
then rebate to them to get the 30 feet
taking the street out to the property
linn aa It la made neceaaary In the
plan to widen out the street. In this
the city haa been auccessful.
But the claim Is set up that the
former owner never gave or Bold the
30 feet running from the church pro
ocrty to the center of the atreet, to
the city. As he never deeded It to
he church It waa natural to suppose
It was still vested In the hnlra to the
former owner. In caae It had not been
Iven to the city, and tha church or
mnmbert of the church went out to
secure It and then make a deal with

the church to offset tha anaessment

claim It will of neoeeHtty be fought

wns a chance for a knotty problem,
and one In which the Intent of the In
dividual will come In for a large share
of whnt Is and whnt Is not.

Four Men at Play and Small Stakea
and Chips In Sight. -
Officer Cooke raided a poker Joint
In full operation about midnight Wed
nesday and found four playera gath
ered around the table. There were
chips and fifty centa In sight, but the
Indications were that the stakes had
not been heavy.
The men were found playing at the
home of Charles Nash, corner of Sev
enth street and J. Q. Adams. As there
had been no disturbance, and there
was little money In sight the visitors
were not locked up and the officer
contented himself with giving orders
for the proprietor, Nash, to appear be
fore Recorder Htlpp at 3 o'clock this
afternoon. Officer Cooke will appear
and tell what be knows in the matter
and. Recorder Stlpv will hear the caae.
Council again had up for discussion
the question of an additional pollco
man for day aervice down town and
for night service on the hill, or Upper
Seventh street. Rev. Hayworth. of
the Ilaptist church, was present and
addreaaed Council on the aiibject of
law enforcement. "He cared not," he
said, "how law enforcement waa ob
tained, but he waa Interested In Its
enforcement. Mayor lirownell prom
laed It to us, we believe he wants to
give It to ua, and we aa christian peo
ple want It. Have no fault to find
with Council but think we should be
given tbla aaaurance that an effort
la to ba made to- see to It. that the
laws are enforced." ' ;
Mr. Walter Cole did not1 see any
necessity for another policeman, waa
satisfied the aaloon men .wanted to
do right and with rare exceptions were
doing right; thought It would be only
an added expenae. t .
Attorney Dye could see no reason
for another policeman; his home had
been burglarized three times but a
half dozen more policemen would not
have saved him; taxea were, hlgn
enough now.
Council has said all along that 1t
cannot aee where to get the money
for the extra expense and haa turned
the recommendation down on that
acore. With Attorney rye and Wal
ter Cole In opposition to Rev. Hay
worth Council voted no on the propo.
sltlon'and the hill people will not be
given pollca protection for a few
weeks at least, -
It la easy to aew that Mayor Brown-
ell ls"not yet satisfied with the out
come, and that he feela he haa prom
ised the hill people aomethlng that ao
far i Council will not permit him to
grant. ' r

.. Police Protec
Council met in special session Wed
nesday evening with Councilman
Burke, Hblman, Andresen, Pope, May-
era, Romke, Hall and Mlchaela pres
ent, Dr. Strickland alone being absent.
A report from the atreet and alley
committee, recommending that the al
ley In block 114 be reduced In width
from 25 to 14' feet, waa ordered ac
cepted. f .
Council permitted ihe tranafer of
the license of the depot saloon from
Joseph Wilson to Chris Kroner.
Tbe question as to the ownerahlp of
the portion of Ninth street, to which
the Congregational church has laid
claim. In connection with their pro
perty on the hill, had been referred
to the City Attorney for report. Hla
report expressed the opinion that the
atreet had been duly given to the city
by I. H. Atkinson yeara ago when be
aold tbe lot to the church for one
dollar and did not Include the half of
tbe street tn the deed to the church,
and that It had been accepted by the
city and thua acquired by the city, and
therefore that the claim of ownership
by the church would not atand the
test of the law. Advised Council to
Ignore the claim of the church and go
ahead with the Improvement of . the
Coplea of U.a contract with Moffatt
- Parker - for - t he - Improvement - of
Sixth street reported ready for sig
natures of city officials. . Report made
that contract was to be completed by
October 15 and penalty for delay of
$5 a day. Mr. Holman did not think
the penalty large enough. Mr. Mof
fatt said no need for penalty aa it
would prove an easy task. After con
siderable discussion It waa agreed to
let the $5 penalty stand. s - '
Mr. Roake aaked aa to the accept
ance of Eleventh street, and Its con-
dlttoo,- eta. r Dtacuaalon . brought out
the fact that when that contract was
In the air the people became so anx
ious that It waa let without due con
sideration, with the people clamoring
for fear of any delay. The further
fact that the street waa not madd
wide enough waa shown and the hope
expressed that du4 consideration be
given the contract on other streets;
also further fact waa brought out ihat
the contract for Eleventh street la no
where to be found, and aome wonder
ing Indulged as to why and how.
Figures of City Engineer were pre
sented as to the cost of Improving
Washington street from Seventh to
Eleventh. Decided not necessary to
refer to committee but simply for
Council to act In due form later.
The question of city official printer
waa taken up and Council voted to
make the Morning Enterprise public
printer at the same rate per Inch aa
at present. Shown that often quicker
action can be taken In having a dally
rather than weekly as official printer.
Mr. Meyera, aa chairman of a spe
cial committee to consider the new
Home Rule proposition aa to the con
duct of saloons waa handed up with
recommendatlona of tbe committee,
the Recorder reading same. The mat
ter waa referred to the City Attorney
to draw an ordinance conforming to
the recommendations.
Councilman Pope could aee no reas
on for pushing aside our own present
good lawa and acting on auggestlona
of aome one else.
Mr. Meyers though aa the people of
the State had voted for home rule it
ahould be tried, and thia waa the out
come of the committee's views aa to
how It be tried.
In the discussion of the Eleventh
Btreet improvement the fact was
brought out that Twelfth Btreet la
likely to be spoiled by makipg a road
way too narrow aa in the Eleventh
atreet matter. Mr. Holman thought
Twelfth street Bhou'd be made right
(JO feet roadway If that la proper.
Mr. Andreaen agreed with thla and
moved that the City Engineer be In
structed to give flgurea and ahow
what and how mdeh it will coat to
make It right.
Mr. Meyera said 8. P. waa not pay
ing any attention to the bridge or
trestle work It must construct at
Twelfth and Recorder waa Instructed
to write again In the matter.
Mr. Roake called up the matter of
the O. W. P. being required to acroen
Us headlighta within the city. Re
corder write again In thla matter.
Rev. Hayworth here aecured the
floor and asked aa to the enforcement
of law that waa promised by the Mayor
In hla campaign. After discussion a
vote waa taken on the subject of
another policeman to aid In the work
and Council voted not to gram the
Mayor's request.

Petty- Law- Breaker - Won't Getto
Sit By Fir. -Officer
Shaw saya there haa been
too much foolishness In certain quar
ters, aa it la too easy a matter to make
a row and then when caught beg off
from the 'police because of the fact
that to put prisoners In the cooler
means expense for food.
New plan Is on foot and If It Is
permissible will soon be put In force.
It Is nothing more than to put the pris
oners to work on the streets of the
city,' under eacort, and require the
cleaning of the aide streets at the ex-
pente of tho petty law breaker. The
matter la to be called to (tie attention
oT the Council.

The Ure Wire are still making a
fight for the establishment of a rural
free delivery route out of Oregon City
Into the Stafford country, now partial
ly covered by a rural route from Sher
wood, Washington County. Stafford Is
only six mllea from Oregon City, yet
the farmers of that section receive
their mall in a roundabout way, letter
and papera first going from Oregon
City to Portland and then out to Sher
wood. ' Through this course. It takes
a letter two days to get from Oregon
City into a place only alx miles away.
It Is proposed to take some of tbe -territory
from one of th Sherwood
routes and establish a new routs from
Oregon City running paat Willamette,
but the IJve Wlrea encountered their
first stumbling block when they ap
plied to the post master at Sherwood
for a tracing of the routs In order to
proceed Intelligently. That official re
fused to, furnish this tracing and aa
there la no way to compel htm to ac
ceed to the wtahea of the Oregon City
people who are Interested In procuring
better mall aervlce for the Stafford
residents. It haa been decided to take
up the matter with Congressman Haw
ley at Washington. .City Recorder L
Stipp waa laat Tuesday appointed a
committee to communicate with Con
gressman Hawley, with the object of
obtaining a tracing, and when that la
aecured, there will be something to
