LAFFERTY WOULD WED
HIGH SCHOOL GIRL
WASHINGTON, Aug. I. (Special.)
Congreaaman lnery, who' wrote
to Mfaa licence KuSei, after seeing
her picture In a newspaper, believes
that what he calls a "spirit of chival
ry' . has been mlaunderatood. He
merely sought aa introduction In an
unconventional way, according to his
explsnstlon, and now finds himself
In the spotlight of publicity from one
end of the country to the other. Mr.
Lafferty formerly practiced law be
fore the Lnad Office In Oregon City.
Kubel Is withholding letters In
which Lafferty pleads not to make
public that he wrote to hla daughter.
It Is reported thst Lsfferty s Infatua
tion led blrOvto make trips to the
Eastern high school at dismissal
time until he got to know Miss Kubel
Concerning the report from Port
land that letters similar to the one
aent by Lafferty to Mlaa Kubel had
been received from him by school
girls In Portlsnd. Lafferty aald to
day: "I don't think I have written any
schoolgirls there. Still I jnlght have
sent some House gallery tlcketa to
them. If I did they were all to wo
men I know. I have never attempted
to make acquaintances there In the
manner I did In the case of Miss Ku
bel." It Is said that Lafferty Is really In
fatuated with Mlsa Kubel. and la
ready to prove his sincerity by mar
Kubel aald today: -All I care to
say Is thst Lafferty ta a poor liar.
When I became aware that my daugh
ter had received a letter from this
man, I went to hla office and showed
him the letter. I Intended to trounce
him. but he pleaded so hard I could
not hit him. Bealdes, he denied then
thst he had written the letter, blam
ing It on the boys In hla office. ' I
never - believed that, but alnce then
he has admitted It waa a lie."
It Is reported that several of Miss
Kubel's schoolmalea to whom she
showed Lafferty's letter have written
to him. Lafferty denies this, but la
authority for the statement several
women have railed him on the tele
phone and aaaured hlra "they would
stick by him," whatever that may
mean. -"Many representatives have
been In to assure me they would
stand by me In this matter," aald

! SOUh'DLY THRASHED
A 11-dressed young man was
severely thrashed at the corner of
Eleventh and Msia streets about S
o'clock Wednesdsy afternoon. A
good-looking woman, a few yeara the
former's senior, watched the admin
istering of the caatlgatlon. which waa
done by a man about forty yeara of
age. Whom they were, the reason for
the corporeal punishment, and where
the trio went are not known. The
young man and woman were seen on
the corner about 1 o'clock in the af
ternoon. They went away, but re
turned about : twenty minutes later,
and waited on the corner until a car

the man of forty. He didn't say a
word. In fact be did not have time,
ao busy did he become In sbout a
second pommelling the young man.
The woman screamed and pleaded for
the victim, but thla hadno effect on
the Infuriated man. He knocked the
other- one down, kicked him several
times, and tben Instructed the woman
to follow him. This she refused to
do, but all disappeared almost In a

The City Council, at a meeting
Wednesdsy night, accepted the ld
of the Bank or Oregon City for $21.
367.36 street Improvement bonds. The
bank agreed to take the entire issue
st par with seemed Interest. W. H.
Howell and Mrs. Julia E. Haakell
each made bids for $2,000 bonds, their
offers being the same as thst of the
bsnk. It Is thought that they will
be able to make arrangements with
the bank for the bonds. The Security
Safety Bank A Trust Company, of
Toledo, Ohio, offered to take the en
tire Issue at par with accrued Inter
eat any pay a premium of 127.50.
However, the company asked for In
formation which would have co4t the
city much more than the amount of
the premium offered. The Finance
Committee waa Instructed to arrange
the details of the issue.
An ordinance, proridlhg for the oil

The Viter Board asked authority
to isue $50,000 wster bonds wtth

City Recorder to notify the board to
prepare ordinances - and resolutions
providing for the proposed Issue.
A communication from- Don EL Mel-
drum, regarding the roadway on
Washington street, was referred to
the City Engineer and the Commit
tee on atreeta. The letter follows:
Gentlemen: Believing that the
best Interest of the city, as well as
all part lea owning property on Wash
ington street between the south line
or Twelfth street and the North line
of Eleventh street, would be bettered
by having the roadway on Washing
ton atreet changed from 30 feet to
40 feet In width, by moving the curb
line five feet nearer the property
line on each aide of said street, pro
viding this is done without extra ex
pense to the property owners, other
than the regular assessment as per
the orlginsl plan of said street, I
would therefore ssk thst you do some
thing toward making this change.
Changes Are Urged. '
As the. street Is now graded, all
the slope across Washington street at
Its Intersection with Twelfth street
Is in the parking on the east side of
the street snd as there .Is about a
three-foot drop It Is too much to give
the surface of the street good ap
pesrsnce and It also csuses the aoutn
side of Twelfth street on the road
way, to be lower than the north side
of Twelfth street, while the plans
show a descending grade across
Twelfth street. It la very essential If
a good street Is to be had that these
changea be made.
"I also wish to call attention to the
fsct thst the 100 feet of corrugated
pipe used last winter In an emerg
ency to renalr the Twelfth atreet aew
er near the corner of Twelfth and
Washington atreej Is now being cov
ered wltba 10 or 12-foot fill and will
aoon be covered with a completed
roadway which will be In constant
danger as long aa thla pipe remains.
It Is well known among engineers
that the first requisite of a good sew
er pipe Is a smooth Inside surface
and a material not effected by acid,
to say nothing of tight. Joints, etc.,
the corrugations In this kind of pipe.
Its Joints which were simply Joined
together and wired, and the, material
the pipe la made of. should condemn
1t for sewer ptoe, except In the case
of an emergency.
"I do not know your plans In re
gard to this sewer, but I do know
thst the break In the Twelfth street
sewer, patched as It Is with this cor
ruasted pipe, should not be left for
another wet season, and I think that
In Justice to the people who will be
effected this winter If this sewer
breaks to say nothing of first-class
sewer construction, that this break
should be repaired with standard
vitrified sewer pipe before the aide
walk and roadway Is finished, aa the
tearing up of newly-made streets to
repair sewers, leaving aa la usually
the case a hole In the surface of the
roadway, ahould not be encouraged
or permitted when possible to avoid "
Protsst Agslnst Assessments.
- Upon the advice of the City Attor
ney the Council refused the request
of the School Directors thst they be
allowed to build a retaining wall on
part of the parkins; at the new High
School on Twelfth street. A reso
lution was ordered published making
a aewer district on Twelfth street
from Taylor to Jackson. The City
Attorney wss Instructed to draw pa
