By onler of the Council, we print In tills
Issue the petition of Mr. John A. Craw
ford, asking tlie city to release him frciru
keeping in repair the fords and bridge
over the Canal in the city limit. Tlie or
d! nance granting the r!ght of way through
the city compels the Caul-Co. to bridge
the Canal at all street crossing, and kr.ep.
thetn In repair. .Mr. Crawford, proprietor
of the Canal, consider this tax too much,
and asks the city to relieve Mitt t the bur
den. We greatly d.aibt tlie iower ol tin;
Council to relieve Mr. Crawford' in the
matter, a such an act would be a
species of clans legislation a direct tax
.upon the property fodder of the city for
tlie benefit of a corporation. In any event.
If the Council should repeal the ordinance,
the first result would lie an expensive
..lawsuit to tlie city, which might not be
terminated very soon, and be attended
with the most injurious result to city val
ues. Let no hasty action- be Imd in tlie
I. tat or letters, '

Since the City :.nld an emb;traro

have been put to the greatest strait to get
cl.-an linen ome parlies not having had
any washing done for more than a month.
Parties now send their washirg to Salem,
r-thers to Corvallis, Harrishurg, and other
places. Under the ordinance no one lias a
right to do washing nn'es a license I pro
cured, and that license is five dollar a
month. Washing rate will have to be
put to bonanza rate or our washerwomen
can't afTbrd'to pay the license ; and if high
rates for washing prevail, our cltixcn will
not ay them. lurt will hunt some other
place. Take any view of tlie. case yon
may, it works a hsrsdhlp to those women
who eiigage In washing for a livelihood,
and lias done no one any good whatever.

To the Honorable Mayor and Common Coim-
cil of the city of Albany :
We the undersigned, residents ot said
city and taxpayers therein," most respect
fully represent to your honorable body,
that John A. Crawfoid Is now the owner
of wimt la known a the Albany and Santi
am Water Ditch or Canal ; that said canal
passes through and acrors various street
in the city of Albany ; that the same was
bnKf. at ao expense of shout $60,000 ; that
Said John A. Cr I wford has owned said canal
for about tour years ; that your petitioners
are informed and believe tliat the Income
rfrom said canal has been only sufficient lo
keep the same in repair, ami that the , day's has marked tliem down so low well, and ths. present - owner you'll he astonished at tlie prices. Silver

fore the city of Albany granted the r'gbt
to the owners of sld canal to appropriate
a portioti of certtiin streets In said city for
the use of-c said canal, on condition that
said owner would build and maintain
bridges at the several crossings of said
streets , that said owners have built said
bridge in accordance with the - conditions
of said grant. Your petitioners further
represent that on account of tlie non-productiveness
of said canal to the owner
thereof, and the large outlay necessary to
keep the same in repair, and on account
of the benefit accruing thetefrom to the
city of Albany, it would he right and
proper, in the judgment ot your petition
ers, for said city to receive and accept all
the bridge mid fords heretofore built over
or across said canat in saiii city limit, and
to maintain and keep tlie same in repair
hereafter at the expense of said city. Ami
yvjur petitioners would pray your honor

even though he imy exercise jthe greatest
care and watchfulness. Oar farmers are
pretty generally making assurance doubly
secure by Insuring their grain after plac
ing it in the warehouse. This Is wise and
safe, and should be followed by all. In
sure your grain, houses, barns, or goods
of any kind In a sound company, and yon
can slee'p soundly. Among flic soundest
insurance companies doliig business in
Oregon, none can be more highly recom
mended than the Connecticut and tlie
German-American. It is a ! noteworthy
tact that both the above eo-opanle paid
every dollar of their losse in the great
Chicago and Boston fire. a fict which
speaks loudly in tlieir favor. The Instruc
tion to agents In every case is to find out
speedily the amount ot any loss by fire In
which they are interested, and pay it to
the last farthing. These are tlie compan
ies in which to insure. Mr. Julius Orad
wohl Is the accomodating agent for both
companies in this city, to, whom all should
