Tha Wood Pila Question
Superintendent of Streets Kearney Is
having trouble la enforcing the orders
made by him for the clearing of the
streets of wood piles. Some time ago
orders were given that the ordinance
concerning wood pile would hare to be
complied with and the streets cleared.
Tha ordinance states that wood mut
not be allowed to remain on a public
atreet more than 24 hours and herein
lies the trouble. ' At thia time of the
year many purchase their winter sup
pllea sod aa a rule tha wood purchased is
green slab wood that must be dried to
make it fit for use. Tha superintendent
does not wish to be arbitrary in the
matter and work a hardship on any one

complain that owing to the acarcity of
labor they cannot get men to carry
their wood off the atreet in the short
time allowed but general feeling pre

the best of their ability. Superintend

narrow escape from being Bhot by an
irate fisherman, Wednesday nuiht, as
the vessel was crossing the bay at As
toria bound for Portland. The bullet

Mr. Fowler says the night was un
usually dark. Fishboats were scattered
all over the bay, and Captain Larkins
kept throwing his searchlight from one
point to another to locate tha small
craft. He, threw the light on a fishboat
near Ws starboard bow. After indulging
in profanity for a few moments, tha
fisherman whipped out a six-shooter and
began firing point-blank toward the pilot
house. The Lurline continued on her
course. Aside from the skipper ana air.
