has been kept at Newport for sev

getting the new establishment' in

coaches on Sunday's excursion to
Newport were crowded with pas
sengers, unable to find seats.
Something like 400 people made
the trip, and there were but four
coaches for their use. One hun
dred and thirty people went from
Corvallis. many of them going on
season tickets. Six coaches were
on the train on the return trip, but
even then a few were compelled to
stand. The C. & E. has only
about one-half enough coaches to
accommodate its summer business.
It is a traffic that is growing im
mensely, and the company will evi

stock in order to handle it.

The city council " deliberated
last night on the subject of Moun- j
tain water, and what figure the city
government is to pay for fire pro
tection. It is said to be the senti
ment of the council that the water
consumers ought not to be made to
bear the whole burden of furnishing
fire protection for the city, especial-
y for auch as are not patrons of
Mountain water, as would be the
case if the city paid nothing for fire
prctection. The idea that the
large property owners should pay
more for fi e protection because
they have more property to be pro
tected, was h Id out by one coun
cilman, aud he urged that a tax is
only equitable method of reaching
tt. Ii is said that about -11,200 per
year for water for city u es is the
figure most often mentioned as fair,
WAS NEWPORT LOVE.
To Birth Place Big: Increase
in Salmon Expected at
I en million salmon eggs were
taken last season at the hatchery,
three miles above Elk City on the
Elk river. The coming season, the
result of the hatchery operations on
Elk river are expected to be mani
fest in an increased ri n of salmon.
It is the theory, that, tor spawning
purposes, the salmon return to the
waters in which they were hatched.
Two million of them were turnsd
loose the first season the Elk river
hatchery was established, and these
are due to return this autumn. A
still greater increase should be
manifest next season, as 6.000,000
young salmon were turned loose the
second year of the hatchery. The
third year the number was 8,ooo,
000 and last year it was rolled up
to 10,000,000. A large number of
the young fish from the last two
years' run were placed in the wa
ters of the Alsea, mostly in Drift
Creek, because of lack of food sup

Love was smeared all over the
car on the return trip of the New
port excursion Sunday evening.
About half a dozen couples of 16 to
18 summers forgot all about the
presence ot other passengers and
yearned for each other with a yearn
fulness that was positively pathetic.
One maiden and her beau of not
more than 19 summers each took
turns about sitting on the others
lap and leaning on each other, pass
ing a swift kiss back and forth
when they thought the rest of
the car was not looking. Another
fair-haired damsel made the jour
ney of 60 odd miles to Corvallis on
the lap and bosom of her youthful ,
beau of cot more than 17. Still
another with all the symptoms of a
sick kitty, and in tatter abandon as
to appearances, sat with her arms
around the neck of her beau, while
he, with an air of complacency, sat
through the ordeal wholly undis
turbed and apparently unaware of
the vulgar gaze of passengers un
accustomed to such affectionate ex
hibitions. In one seat he and she
got to talking baby talk to each
other which seemed to be a sort of
mixture of humming bird courtship
and the .wail of two dying calves.
An old codger stuck his head in the
rear door of the car and, after
catching a glimpse of the situation,,
remarked, "Everybody sleeps but
father." Just then the train
ploughed into a tunnel and after
giving vent to a sonnd like a cow
drawing her foot out of the mud,
he shut the door and disappeared,
much to the disgust of those in love
and the amusement of those out of

of the constabulary on the island of

Talk around town is to the ef
fect that another hose cart ought to
be bought, and that one ought to be
stationed in the northwest and one
in the southwest part of town, with
two at the city hall. 1 here are
now three on hand. An additional
500 feet of hose and a new hose cart
with a nozzle would be all that
would have to be bought by the city
the total cost cot exceeding $450.
It is said that citizens have offered
to supply places for the carts to be
kept if the city would provide such
an arrangement as is above propos
ed. "What tbe city ought to do is
to sell the fire engine and apply the
proceeds to the purpose," is what
Fire Chief Berry said about it.
The . proposed distribution of the
carts would give Corvallis, with its
present fire alarm system, excellent
water pressure and many fire plugs
one of the most effective systems of
fare piotection m the country.
