$20,000 in Bonds Not Redeemed.
Cjty Treasurer Adams Is wondering
where $20,0J0 of city Improvement
bonds of an issue, which was called
in some time ago. are now located as
the owners have not called to have
them redeemed. Where they have gone
is a mystery that the official has, as
yet, been unable to solve. The original
purchasers were notified that the
money is on hand for the redemption
of the bonds and that interest on them
had been stopped. Most of the bonds
were purchased originally by bond
brokers and then resold.

WATER FIGHT IS WAGED
MILWACKIE CAMPAIGN PRECEDING
SPECIAL ELECTION HEATED.
Companies Vrse Voter to Decide for
Purchase of Present Plants to
End Present Litigation.
Milwaukle Is in the throes of a
heated water works campaign, which
will culminate Saturday at a special
election when two questions will be
voted on: "Shall the charter be so
amended as to compel Mllwaukie to
acquire the property of the Milwaukie
Water Company and the Minthorne
Springs Water Company by purchase,
arbitration or condemnation?" and
"Do you favor Milwaukie buying Min
thorne Springs for a water supply,
rather than buying Bull Run water
from Portland at a fixed price per
If the first amendment carries the
Council may offer a sum for these
water plants, but if the terms are not
accepted the Council may condemn
both properties. Minthorne Springs
may be acquired in the same way If
the voters declare In favor of Min
thorne Springs as a water supply.
A pamphlet has been sent to regis
tered voters setting forth the attitude
of the water companies and the reply
by" the former Mayor and Councilmen,
who made the contract for Bull Run
water. The Milwaukie Water Com
pany asserts that it holds an exclusive
franchise under section 1 of ordinance
No. 6, passed by the Council April 29,
1904, which reads: "That an exclusive
franchise and right of way for a period
of 30 years is hereby granted to F. W.
Berkemier and B. M. Fisch and their
associates west of the Southern Pacific
track, and their associates shall have
exclusive right to all water flowing
through said town for sale to private
parties and for fire purposes during
said period." The Minthorne Springs
Company does not claim exclusive
franchise. It operates east of the South
ern Pacific track. The companies urge
the citizens of Milwaukie to vote for the
acquisition amendment, as they declare
It will end trouble and prevent further

TOM KELLY GETS OVATION BEFORE
HE BEGINS KCN-MAKING.
Burglar Sketch, Clever Acrobats, Grace
ful Dancers and Good Singers
Appear on BUI.
The audience at Pantages didn't wait
for Tom Kelly to begin his song, "I'm
on My Way to Dublin Bay," nor did it
pause till he had rattled off some of
his inimitable jokes and patter, but it
applauded vigorously the minute Tom,
me lasnion plate baritone, appeared.
It was a hearty greeting of a genuine
favorite. Kelly has personality, loads
of it, and he has, in additions, a splendid
voice and a fund of sparkling wit. Sev
eral enthusiastic encores rewarded his
successful efforts to entertain. He sang
"I Didn't Raise My Boy to Be a Soldier,"
Dancing Linderneath an Irish Moon"
and several other songs. He also made
a little curtain speech yesterday.
A Santa Claus pack lull of lauglis Is

ions and derides the efforts of vrm-n

selves beautiful. The audience called
him back three times and didn't want
to let him go even then.
An act that offers loads of entertain
ment is offered by Sadie Sherman, a
stunning brunette, who wears a gor
geous red gown. Miss Sherman sings
and gives Impersonations of an old
lady anJ later of a mother with a new
baby sitting for their photographs.
Her impersonations are distinctly .real
istic. She has another number that
pleases immensely when she appears
as an Italian woman and sings about
her folk. Miss Sherman possesses that
most elusive thing, personality, and it
pervades her work.
A most diverting sketch is presented
by Etta Bryan, a clever little actress,
with Roy Sumner and Laurence Will
iams. The sketch is called "A College
Proposition" and tells entertainingly of
how a giggling little bride outwits
her brilliant father-in-law when he
would annul her marriage to his son.
Miss Bryan acts with ease. The lines
of the play are snappy and bright, the

Portland. It has a thirty-one-acre natural scenic park right in its heart.

Thirty-five new homes are now being erected in LAURELHURST. It's simply burning up with
activity. Sixteen new homes are going up in the vicinity of our new Bungalow Block and are selling
before-completion. That's why we had to put an office down there to handle the visiting crowds.
WHY THIS BUILDING BOOM IN LAURELHURST?
Because LAURELHURST is the leader in everything that stands for projrreHsiveness and it is
recognized as THE LEADER in the new type of homes we are erecting, which on sight simply take
the people right off their feet, and because IT'S A WONDERFUL TIME TO BUILD RIGHT NOW.
