BOYS BACK FROM FINE
CRUISE TO COOS BAY
The Oregon City boya who went on
the cruise with the Oregon Naval
Militia on the cruiser Boston, arrived
home Thursday morning. Of those co
llated only twelve went on the cruise
and they report a fine trip and all
seemed lo enjoy the experience.
Leaving Portland last Wednesday
at 4 o'clock the Boston steamed to
Astoria and lay there till 4 a. m. Sun
day when .he sailed for Coo. Bay.
The trip to sea wa. moat enjoyable
and none of the Oregon City. contingent-
had any of the pang, of sea
sickness. Sunday afternoon a sur
prise "man overboard" drill wa. giv
en and two Oregon City boya were
in the life-boat crew. The life-boat
was cast off, the buoy picked np and
the boat hoisted to the davit. In less
than six minutes, which I. a remarka
ble record for a green cjew.
Monday the cruiser steamed up
Coos Bay to Marshfteld where the
tv. were royally entertained by tho
citizens. The Boston I. to stay at
Marshfteld for six weeks when the
Portland dlvtsiona will be cilled upon
for men to bring her back. Several
of the Oregon City lad. are planning
to go on this cruise, also as there will
be a chance to learn more ot the rou
tine of sea life. The Portland and Ore
gon Cley men left MareliHeld Wed
nesday at 1 p. m. on . the steamer
Breakwater and arrived In Portland
at 12:30 a. m. Thursday, an hour and
a half being spent at Astoria.
The trip up the coast on the Break
water waa altogether different from
the down trip on the Boston, and made
up for the few hardships met on the
outward cruise. Owing to the fact
that almost every one aboard the Bos
ton was green at the work, there was
some confusion, but taking everything
into consideration the first cruise of
the Oregon Naval Militia was a de
cided success, and the men are eager
for next summer to come so they may
again take places on board and learn
more of the detail, of operating one
of Undo Sam', big fighting machines.
A new canvass Is to be made In
Oregon City for recruit, so Hist the
full complement for a company may
be enlisted here and drill and Instruc
tion started as soon as possible. All
the boys who were on the cruise are
enthusiastic and will do everything
possible to build up a creditable or

The City Council, at a meeting Fri

Committee on Streets, to build a new
sidewalk on Singer Hill. An extra
heavy outside railing wis "Ordered,
and the committee was Instructed to
erect one on the inside,- ir It should
be thought necessary. The present
walk is said to be in a dangerous con
dition. A letter from M ra Harriet
and Misses Nan and Louise
Cochran, protesting against the
Improvement of a section of
Washington street adjacent to their
property wa. read, and referred to the
City Ecadneer and the Committee on
8treeta. The letter waa aa follow.:
"We herewith represent to your
Honorable Body that we arts the own-

which aald: lota front upon Washing

Twelfth streets In aald city.
"We are not satisfied with the Im
provement or partial Improvement of,
that part of Washington atreet ad
jacent to our property., for the reason
that before said street was jmproved,
we were Informed by city officers that
the cut at the northeast corner of our
property ' would be about sixteen
Inches, and that the samo has been
cut about three feet and oue-half and
that there has been more fill made at
the alley south of our property and In

We are further Informed that the
street is not on grade and that the
plans and specifications have not fully
been complied with.
"This particular block on Washing

No remonstrances having been re
ceived to the Improvement on Taylor
street, the work was accepted. The
ordinance providing for a culvert on
John Adams street from Fourteenth
to Abernathy Creek was read for the
first time. Mayor Brownell suggested
that an addition to No. S Hose House,
aa recommended by Fire Chief Long,
be built. Jack Gleason, a member ot
the company, aald that the present
meeting room was too small for the
thirty member, of the company. The
matter was referred to the Committee
on Fire and Water.
Fire Chief Long asked that a fire
bell be installed on the hill. He said
that, several citizens had asked nlm
to make the request. The Committee
on Fire and Water was Instructed to
look Into the proposition.
The committee appointed to inves
tigate cement sewer pipe for use in
the city reported, through tho i City
Engineer, that it was not as durable
as the terra cotta pipe. A further

WASHINGTON, Aug. 18.-r-In a suc

pass the wool and free list bills over
the President's veto and virtually
fixed upon adjournment of Congrees
early next week.
The House will agree on Monday
to the cotton tariff revision bill, as
amended In the Senate, but will not
hold Congress In session to await the
certain veto of that measure. The
Senate cleared away all Its business
and adjournment is assured. In the
view vi leaaers oi nom parlies in dqui
Houses, by next Wednesday at the
Hawley of Oregon, and Humphrey
of Washington, voted to sustain the
President on both measures. Lofferty

to sustain the President on the wool
bill, but voted with the Democrats to
pass the free list bill over his veto.

ride the veto on the free list failed
of a two-thirds majority also, the vote

Representative Dalzell, of Pennsyl

"I believe, he continued, "that your

Speaker Clark was cheered from
both sides of the House when he left
