At a meeting of the executive com

to begin the erection of a new edifice

met at the rectory with tne ue,v. ,
W. Robinson to consider bldB for the
edifice. For years the people of St.
Paul's parish have been looking ror
ward to the time when they could
worship In a more commodious build

plan was Immediately set on foot In
a businesslike manner. At a ban
quet given sometime ago by the rec
tor and vestry, not only members of
the church, but other leading cltl
tens of the city attended. Mr. Robin ,
son looks upon the erection of the
church, such as It Is proposed, to build,
as a matter of Interest and advantage
to the city. His expectation that the
citizens generally would be Interested
has been fully realised.
A contract will be signed at once
with I B. Valk, an architect, of Los
Angeles, and U Is proposed to erect
the building as soon as possible. The
members of the churcR say that work
would have been started before th's,
but for the fact that a committee or
the city council hesitated to grant
permission to build the curbing up
four feet on the river bank. This
necessitated a complete change of
It Is planned to erect a tower on
the corner of Ninth and Water atreets
with the building facing Ninth street.
If the original plan had been allowed

had nromlsed to build a ten-foot side
walk from Ninth atreet to tho court
house. As It Is, the church will be
entirely on Its own property.

PULP MILL ON EAST

H.Ai.inti hnwvr. win nave no ei-
rt nn 'th nuln and naiier plant of
the company on the west side of the
river, which will be conunuea in op
eration the same as heretofore. The
n.,ln marl at tha nlant Oft the east
side of the river has been shipped to
the paper plant or the company at
mQa wouh for mannfacture. ana
the company believes It wHl be more
satisfactory to manuracture tne pum
at the naner plant Electric power
will be used there. . ,
Another reason that probably naa
something to do with the decision to
move the plant Is that the proposed
rout of the new east side canal at
the falls traverses the mill property,
and th continuation of a plant on
the oast side would necessitate We
erection of a new factory.
ICE SHORTAGE DUE TO
Owing to a breakdown In the ma
chinery of the Oregon City Ice Works,
the city Is suffering from a partial Ice
famine. The company, however. Is
making every effort to aupply the
trade. Four tone of ice were obtained
for local use In Portland Wednesday
and more will be obtained this after
noon. , The plant will be repaired as
soon aa possible. The ' customers to
whom Ice Is not delivered may get
