started down tha hill when a chaaffuer
In charge of an automobile following
blew tha horn for the driver of tha

hearing tha nolae of tha horn became
frightened and ran down tha blll'at a
teriiflo rate, but tha driver remained
In tba seat and held to tha reins.
There wera several teams going In
tba opposite direction, on a of F. T.
Darlow, which was driven by Mr.
Cbsrles, wbo Immediately turned bis
team, and escaped from being struck
by the frightened horses by only a
few Inches. Tba horses proceeded on
their way across tha track ana down
towards tha river. At tba corner ot
the 8ulllvan property tha horses
turned and ran Into a large Or tree.
Had It not been for tha tree they
would have gone over tha bluff Into
the river, taking the driver with thara.
It was recess at the McLoughlln
Institute and many of the children
were playing In tba street nearby
when the horses dashed down from
the bluff, and the youngsters bad a
narrow escape. . Tha borses had no
mora than passed wer the railroad
track when the passenger train cam

Firemen Think Officer Cooke Was too
Haaty at Sunday Fife.
During the Are' Sunday' morning
there was much rowdylam on tba
streets to the annoynance of the fire
man and to the discomfiture of the po
lice. As an outcome Officer Cooke
arrested a fireman who was at work
on the lire under tha misapprehension
that ha was Interfering with tha work
of extinguishing the blase,
' Complaint was made to the Mayor
In the matter and the subject was
brought up for discussion at the meet
ing of Council Thursday night. There
Is to be a closer watch kept of who
are and who are not at work at the
Ores and by what authority men are
working. The firemen felt outraged
over the deed and no doubt tba officer
felt ha waa doing his duty.

It la a hard matter to get the true

Council met in special session
Tbursdsy evening with Messrs. An
dresen. Burke, pope, Roake, Hall and

In the chair. ' City Attorney Story
acted In the place of Recorder Stlpp,
who was absent
Tba request for the transfer of the
saloon license of the Miller saloon to
J. A. Butler waa referred to tba police
committee for action. Aa all licenses
are up for acceptance at the next regu
lar meeting It waa deemed unneces
sary to hurry In the matter.
Matters of Interest to tha volunteer
firemen were up for consideration.
There was the question of putting the
bell on the bluff so that when an
aUrm was sounded all could hear It.
The question of paying each Are
company $100 a year instead of $25
wss duly considered and referred to
eommlttee for report.
The question of who Is to care for
the dirt and rock that falls on tho
sldewslks when once a cut has been
made along a property waa up for
consideration. Ordinance will be pre
pared causing the property "owns to
build retaining wall or continue to car
ry dirt away.
Mr. Howell wished to have the as
sessments made on Washington street
so that property holders might go
sbead and Improve property- now and
get benefit of conditions existing and
not be forced later to pay assessment
on improvements.
Ex-Chief Koerner thought there
ought to be phones In all the engine
fire company houses.
Mayor Brownell asked Council
consider the matter of providing three
public lavatories, one on the hill and
two down town
J. F. Hodge wished to rent the foot
of Sixth street on which to build an
addition to his present barn. , An
ouncad willingness to pay $6 a month
on five year lease. Referred to public
property committee
C. Schuebel waa present to present
a remonstrance against changing the
grsde on Sixth street after It bad been
once established and the damages and
benefits once assessed; said it could
not be done without another appraise
ment and that his client would not
uermit of It under other circum
There wss much discussion relative
to the Are department and the fire
apparatus, etc. The Bremen wish to
have the Are bell put on the bluff, so
that everyone can hear the alarm.
With this Council agreed but there is
yet a question as to what Is best to
da As a Portland Arm are to give
figures as to the cost of establishing
10 or 13 alarm boxes over the city it
wss thought best to combine the two
matters Into one and consider them
There was talk of paying the chief
engineer $100 and requiring him to
collect the water rents. This led to
much discussion as to what could be
done, what the water board would do.
how he could be put on aa special
policeman and what the firemen would
do In case the city choae the chief
rather than the men. About the only
thing accomplished was the reference
to committee of the several matters
discussed for the committee and the
city attorney to see what can be dona.
The whole discussion oi me volun
teer firemen's needs and rights
brought out the fact that the volun
teers are doing much for tba city and
without pay; that It is a esse of non
property holders fighting for the pro
perty of others ana mat tney snouiu
at least have the expenses of the com
pany paid without being forced to give
dances to get money to pay them.
The whole matter will be threshed
out In committee and then Council
can act Intelligently, me wnoie
Conncu seems
illlng to do what is
fafr In the matter, and the volunteers
can rest assured that all will be done
that seems reasonable to the City
When the city began to Improva
Ninth street It was found that tn cer
tain portions ot the street the city did
not own lands making the street 60
feet wide, but only owned to tha mid
dle of tha street. That tha city might
have a street tbe full 60 feet In width
the purchase waa made of the addi
tional 30 feet in the settlement with
the property owners.
Tbe Congregational church owns a
lot on Ninth street which will be as
sessed along with the other property
oq the street. This lot was given to
the church by a former pastor, Rev.
Atkinson, but at tba time of the dona
tion he did not give the 30 feet half
street to the church nor to the city.
Seeing that other property holders
were settling with the city on the re-
leasement basis members of tha
church secured a quitclaim deed from
the heirs of the original donors and
then the church waa In a condition to
trade easement for improvement as
sessments. But when tba matter waa broached
the City Attorney reported adverse to
the claim of tbe church, and was fa
cetious In bis remarks as to the hold
ing quality of tbe claim.
After a' recent meeting of tbe church
there was an Informal discussion of
tbe matter and po official action tak
en. But fcecauae of certain criticism
of tbe church and its attitude, a meet
ing waa held Tburaday night and of
ficial action taken. It was tba sense
6f the meeting, and waa so expressed
In a formal resolution, that while the
church might have legal rights which
could be established in tbe courts, It
would ba willing to waive tbem and
execute to the city a quit claim deed
to tba property In question. And a
committee consisting of L. Adama and
Rev. W. M. Proctor was appointed to
convey tbe action of the church to the
city Council. Thla waa done and tha
Mayor and tba Council expressed their
appreciation of tbe action of the
church in the matter.
There can be no reason for criti
cism of tha action of tha members of
tbe church who, seeing others given
rebate for tbe easement of tbe 30
foot strips wanted for street purposes.
and knowing that tbe city did not own
the strip in question, went to tbe pro
per doners and secured tha atrip for
qse In trading purposes. And there
can be no Just causa for criticism of
the church for asking a trade on tbe
same basis as the other land holders
on tbe street.

Fishermen on Lower River Simply
Destroy Buoineee of Local Fish
ermen Without Protect
Ing Salmon.
SALEM, Or., March I All tha
atreams tn Clfttaop and Clackamaa
counties are to be closed from March
15 to May 1 by a ruling of tba State
Board Wedneaday afternoon, the de
cision being such that tha cloaed sea
son on these streams will conform.
alter March IS, to the season on tha -Columbia
River. Tba season on tha
Columbia River 'for salmon fishers
closed March 1 to continue until May '
1 and U was the original plan to eloaa
the Willametta from March II to April
IS. ! , :;',
Considerable difficulty arose last
year over the closing of tha Willam
ette, the river being closed after a
fight It was aald that If the stream
waa allowed to remain open It would v
be a breach of faith with tba State of
Under tba ruling made by the Board
for this year,' not only the Willamette,
but tha Clackamaa River in Clacka
mas county, the Young's River In Clat
sop county, and In fact all of tha
Clackamas and Clatsop county streams
will be closed from March 15 to May
1. This adds 15 days to tbe original
closed season for these rivers but still
leavea them open 15 days longer than
the Columbia.
The Board assumed tbe attitude
that It was the Intention of the law to
close all of the streams In conformity
with closed season on tba Columbia,
to keep faith wi,th Washington.
The Clackamas county fishermen
are exceedingly dlspleaaed over tbe
above order of the State Board of Fish
Commissioners In closing the Willam
ette and Clackamas from April 15 to
'May 1, and say that aa a result thous
ands of dollars wUI be taken out oi
their pockets. ' Representative M. A.
Magone telephoned to Governor West
Thursday afternoon protesting against
the commission's order.but tba only
satisfaction ha obtained was the state
ment of the Governor that tba matter
waa closed.
Local fishermen will probably not
attempt to violate the order closing
the streams, but manifest extreme dis
appointment They say none will be
benefitted, as tbe uppvr rlvert become
. warm during the latter part of April
and the salmon become lary and make
WUe effort to go over the fish ladder
at the FaUa. and He In the river and
die. The Willamette and Clackamaa
flHhermnn contend that tha order
works against tbem to tbe Interest of
th Columbia River fishermen, but
that it does not protect the salmon.
It is said that on account of tha mud
dy condition of the Columbia late in
April there la no demand there for an
open season until May, but that simi
lar conditions do not prevail on tbe

water into the stream that flows down
between Fifth and Sixth streets, but
this Is "a theory and not a condition,"
and because ot this fact tha property
holders flooded are making a kick.
