Frank Coulter, secretary of the Pil

There Is more trouble brewing in

street waa Improved in the east end in
the vicinity of Forty-fourth street a
considerable portion of the town was
taken In to help pay for the Improve
ment Now other streets are being im
proved there and the aame rule la being
observed. One man, Fred Llndstrom,
la about to be assessed for Ave sepa
rate Improvements, and he haa protes
ted. The case in question haa been re
ferred to tho atreet committee and city
attorney, and Mr. Llndstrom'a assess

At the meeting of tbe council Tuei
day nlaht, Councilman Burns asked
whether or not there was an ordinance
prohibiting teamatera from driving
acroaa sldewalka. He related that some
careless teamster had driven his
wagon over a cement sidewalk on Fif
teenth street before the cement bad
hardened, and that com plain ta were
frequently filed by contractors whose
work had been damaged In this man
ner. He believed aome atepa should
b taken to prevent the practice. Such
persons are liable to arrest for ma
licious destruction of property, and it
is not Improbable an example will be
made If mora car Is not observed by
teamatera. Councilman Robinson call
ed attention to 'the general violation
of tho city law which prohibits "trail
ers' ta wagons. Ha said that several
children had been killed by trailers,
and told of an Incident that came un
der bis own observation on- Exchange
street a few days ago. A wagon was
driven along tba street with a trailer
behind, and a child was perched on
the tongue of tha trailer. Tbe little
one fll and bad an almost miraculous
escape from death. Members of the
council will watch for violations of
tba law covering the matter and ar
rests will follow If teamsters do not
observe its terms.
The Astorian is In receipt of a let
ter from James B. Stewart of Grays
River, Wash, concerning whose brutal
attack upon two elderly men a state
ment recently appeared In these col
umns. Stewart's letter is very long
and relates the events that transpired
In the land contest leading up to the
assautt The public is not Interested
In this feature of the matter. Stew
art expressea the conviction that The
Aatorlan's Informant was W. N. Me
serve, but in this be is mistaken. The
story of the assault was related by a
resident of Portland who was pres
ent when young Stewart struck down
Messrs. Lawrence and Ahlberg, both
old men, and Mr. Meserve was In no
way responsible for tbe publication of
tbe statement Stewart boasts In his
letter that he struck the two old gen
tlemen, both of whom, according to his
admission, were rendered unconscious.
From his letter It Is evident that tbe
gentleman who acquainted Tbe Asto
rian with the facta In tbe matter was
not in error when he referred to the
young" man as a brute Stewart says
that after he bad struck down Mr.
Lawrence, Mr. Ahlberg rushed at bun,
but the gentleman who related the
facts to The Astorian stated that Mr.
Ahlberg bed merely gone to the pros
trate old man to pick him up. Both
from the original statement and from
young Stewart's letter It is plain that
the assault was wholly unprovoked.
and the young fellow ahould be thor
oughly ashamed of himself for his
brutal assault upon the two old men.
The report of Fish Warden Van
Dusen for the month of May deals
with the transplanting of eastern oys
ters at Yaqulna Bay, Ore. The war
den expresses the conviction that the
transplanted oysters will thrive there
equally as well as the Toke Point oys
ters have thrived at Wlllnpa bay, and
he looks for a large and profitable in
dustry. As to the Sluslaw river hatch
ery, the warden bos determined to
reverse conditions next season and
carry on operations on tbe Lake creek
fork Instead of on the main river.
Freshets hindered operations on the
main stream, and the work there was
not very successful. The report shows
the receipts of the office for May to
have been $1147.50, and the expendi
tures to have been $372.90. GUlnet
licenses were issued to 133 persons.
Notice to Water Consumers.
: Friday, June 10, is the last day on
which to pay water rates to avoid
the penalty charged all delinquents.
The county court yesterday decided
to construct the court house foundation
by day labor. Architects Luarua and
Grondahl were in the city to attend
the adjourned session of the court.
and atated that the $20,000 bids sub
mitted previously by the contractors
were excessive. They stated that the
foundation could be Installed for not
to exceed $12,000, and guaranteed to
do the work for that sum or less. The
court accepted the proposal, and the
architects will start at once upon the
work. Just how much less than $12,
000 the foundation will cost the county
can not be atated, but the architects
will da the work as cheaply aa possi
the same character of work that the
contractors recently bid upon. The
court yesterday advertised for blda for
he construction of the main building.
The bids must be in before June 30.
Whether or not there will be any diffi
culty with this contract because of the
contention over the foundation remains
to be seen.
