St. Johns Charter. The new charter
prepared for St. Johns, which is mainly
The work of City Auditor Thomas C. Dev
lin, Is being retouched preparatory to be
ing submitted to the Council and finally
to the people o that new city. The
t barter committee was fortunate In se
curing Mr. Devlin's aid in framing the
(barter, as he has accurMe and full
knowledge of the wants of a municipal
government Insofar as he assisted in
drafting the Portland charter. The com
mittee Is gratified that the work Is so
noar completed that the charter may soon
be submitted. At a meeting of the com
mittee a few evenings ago with Mr. Dev
lin and several interested citizens, some
of the provisions were gone over and
bevoral changes agreed upon. On the
whole. It is considered probable that the
charter will be adopted with but a few
changes here and there. "When submitted
to the public there will probably be ob
jections to some clauses. It is expected
that the Council will hold a special meet
ing to consider the charter. "Under the
now charter the first election of city
officers of St. Johns will be held the first
Monday in April, 1903.
Petition for School. Addition. A pe
tion to the Board of Education has been

thickly-settled district, that the building
is now overcrowded and that there Is
ample room on the south side of the
present structure for eight rooms if need
be. There are 17 rooms at present, occu
pied with about 900 pupils, two outside
rlasssrooms being on the school ground.
In a short time a public meeting will be
held in the neighborhood to show the de
sire of the people.
"Work of Vandax. "Windows of the

Tenth streets, were broken by young
vandals one night last week. The loss
Is very severe, as most of the windows

police officer has boon detailed to Inves
tigate the outrage and he has obtained
the names of several boys supposed to
be implicated. It is considered probable
thttt the offenders will be arrested. This
church was recently completed at large
expense and the pastor and congregation
are indignant that it should thus be

will be employed when In full operation.

missing, was merely visiting friends. Mrs.

Hatchet Not Buried. Although to
day marks the end of the time allowed
for the consideration of the differences
existing between the Franklin as
sociation and the Job printers in
Portland, there seems to be but
little chance of a settlement today.
The printers still hold to their original
demand for an eight-hour day, while the
association shows no apparent Inclination
to recede from Its proposition of a nine
hour day. The question of hours seems
to be the only difficulty, but unless this
can be adjusted It is said that the print
ers will walk out. The rumor of a lock
out appears to lack confirmation, and the
officials of the association disclaim any
thought of taking such a step.

nary steps were taken last night at the
meeting of the Federated Trades Council

women's auxiliary to the council. The
idea of having such an auxiliary with
its membership open not only to the rela
tives of union men, but to all working
women as well, has been under consider
ation for some time, and it is now
thought that a complete organization will
be effected shortly after the first of the

The United States Engineer's office
yesterday, issued an advertisement for
bids for furnishing and delivering
stone foretty construction during the
coming year. Bids will be received until
11 A. M., January 31, 1905.
While the quantity of stone to be
furnished Is dependent upon the ap
propriation received from Congress,
It is thought that at least 600,000 tons
will be required, and bidders are
asked to figure on this amount as an
approximate basis. Delivery of the
stone Is to be made either by rail or
water at Fort Stevens, Or., and should
begin by April 1, 1905.
