Board of Public "Works for St. Johns.
City Attorney Greene is preparing an
ordinance for establishment o a board ot
public works for St. Johns, along: the lines
of the former ordinance on that subject,
which has been sleeping in a pigeonhole.
This movement is for the purpose of cs--tablishine
an authority inside the Council
for the erection and operation of a mu
nicipal water plant in St Johns. According-
to the temper of the people, as shown
in the former agitation, a majority would
llkolv vote sufficient bonds either to take
over the present plant or to construct a
new one. Mayor .King is a strong advo
cate of municipal ownership of water
works, and believes that now is the right
time to take definite action in that direc
tion. The ordinance will be so drawn up
that the Board of Public Works will have
authority, subject to the approval of tho
Council, to contract for the erection of a
water plant, or to purchase the present
one. It is proposed either to constitute a
board of five members, all C.ouncumen,
or lo take the whole Council of seven
nnmh(ro n.i make them the board. The
objection urged to the latter method Is
that the board would be cumbersome, mc
former ordinance made the present water
committee and two members to be named
by the Mayor, the board. This matter
will be left to the Council Itself to deter
mine. The question is expected to come
up at the adjourned meeting Monday
TFiia Use Steam Shovels. Gieblsch &.
Jonlin will die: the trench for the high
service pipe line from the Mount Tabor

already have a considerable outfit parked
at this place. The pipe from the Mount
Tabor reservoir will be a 24-Inch main,
and will be laid deep. It will connect with
the Albina system of pipes, to supply
"Woodlawn and the whole of the Penin
sula. A large force will be employed
when work is under way. The trench will
4 be scooned out by means of steam shovels.
which w.ork rapidly. The work of laying
the main will be done when the weather
is do-. The residents of Woodlawn ana
the Peninsula' will rejoice to know that
this main will be laid this year.

Ground -for Schoolhouse. The Board
of Education will secure a block of ground
at Midway, on the Milwaukle road, for
the proposed schoolhouse which will be
erected there next year. T. B. Tabke, of
that neighborhood, said that a subdls
trlct for the new building would bo formed
between Carl and Lebo streets, or there
abouts, and the grounds for the building
would be about the center of this territory-
Four rooms will be erected next
year, but the plans will be for a ten-room
structure. Mr. Tabke says that probably
a block may be selected at some point be
tween Milwaukle road and the river. The
selection of ground will be made this
Spring, probably wRh the advice and aid
of the Midway Improvement Association.
This new schoolhouse will take some pu
pils from the Brooklyn and Scllwood
buildings, and at least three rooms in a
four-room building will be occupied at the
start, as that section Is growing rapidly.
Completing Irvington Schoolhouse.
The eight-room schoolhouse on B razee

Tnti dcse quality ol ouricsque mat
the Baker has given In some weeks
Is nrovlded bv the "Innocent Maids"
Company, which made Its appearance
yesterday. Something very much like
real burlesque Is supplied by the new
troupe, which has good comedians, good
singers, n. good olio, elaborate costuming
and ample scenic equipment. Then the
chorus Is passably good looking, and the
material which the company works with
Is considerably better than usual.
There Is the double installment ot bur
lesque with an olio that Is a model, bar
ring one or two inconsequential defects.
"The White Statue." a lively little skit
teeming with fun and action, serves as
tho curtain raiser. The piece requires the
services of an Irishman, a bunco sharp,
a capitalist, an heiress, a dude and a
bunch of flirts, who proceed to get in a
large variety of grotesque- -complications.
"Stranded," a one-act assortment of bur
lesque, which concludes the show. Is the
best part o the programme. It deals
with the adventure of a stranded the
atrical organization, which Is In very
close straits through lack of patronage.
The company handles this particularly
well and managed to keep the audience
In an uproar yesterday afternoon. The
concluding melodramatic take-off Is well
handled by LIda Dexter, Eugene Jerge
and John Moran.
Of the list of vaudcvHlo specialties It
can be said that Dconza and Elliott give
the best acrobatic novelty act that has
been along In many days. Markey and
Moran have a successful make-up, but
their Jokes are very old; and yet, not old
enough to sound new. Aleene and Ham
ilton, billed as the "original ginger girls,"
live up to that name, with a lively ex
hibition of dancing and kicking. "The
"Innocent Maids" will dispense burlesque
all week at the Baker.

"At Cripple Creek" yesterday afternoon,
for not only every seat In this popular
playhouse was occupied, but standing
room was In demand.
The production more than merited
the unusual ovation proffered It. as it
is one of the best which has visited
any Portland theater this season. There
is lots of good play in It, but the at
mosphere of the Colorado mining camp
Is so realistic that this feature only
adds to tho effectiveness of the frontier
life depicted In the four scenes. Women
who can shoot with aim as true as
man's, an Indian who devotes himself
to a white - man in gratitude for a
kindness done him, and the Mexican
greaser of pioneer mining days, are
some of the characters which weave the
interesting story of "At Cripple Creek."
The cast Is so uniformly good that It
is difficult to pick out the best. Honors
should probably go fo MllHcent Evans,
a young girl who 13 already a finished
actress, and will surely make her mark
In the dramatic world. She and little

understand how to keep it. As Maggie

and buckskins and handles a ride with

She is pretty and chic, and a scene In

drence and its admiration. Collin Var

of Jesse Hale Is unusually good. B.
Scott Dudley Is satisfactory In the role
of a coon bartender, and Maud Scott
