method of numbering the blocks In hun

- ' Mr. i flolman tells how the method
'that waa adopted by early city father
la a rood one, but one that V very few
have taken the trouble to Investigate.
".. He says that all cabmen are familiar
with the system and most messenger
hove who in tell on the Instant , be
tween what streets number may- be
found on-any given street
Intersection ITumbers. : . '
' The numbers at each Intersection are
the same throughout the city as a rule
and the numbering has been carried out
on that plan. ' For Instance, 36S Alder
street occurs at the northwest corner of
Alder and Third streets and the same
number is found on ne northwest cor
ner of every Intersection Third street
makes with another street, as 165 Tay
lor street Is on the northwest corner of
Tliird. 855 Washington street 1s on the
northwest corner of Third. The odd
numbtrs slwaya occur on the north and
west wides of the street.
- Around the coroner from f 65 Alder
street Is 135 Third street and every
street from Front out to Chapman Is
. numbered 13S at that same point, on
the northwest comer.. The number 126
Fifth street la st the northwest corner I
of the Intersection with Alder and so on
through the -city. - ... .. , ,
, Convenience of System.' ' -
Mt. Hoi man ssya ; that -this Is i.-e
greatest convenience of the Portland
evetem. although It is not the only one.
The blocks are numbered in twenties In
stead of Iih hundreds as they are In
some other-cities. There is a number
for every 10 feet- on each side of the
street for blocks Sot feet Ion", making
i numoers to a block. no mat start
Ins; with 25 Alder street, corner of
Third, the number at a almllar Iocs
tion on the corner of Fourth Is 20 more
or S7I Alder street, at Fifth, Z0 more
numbers or X9i Alder street, and ao on.
"Now, this system-Is very simple and
how could we wish a better oner' asks
Mr. Hoi man after explaining the scheme
adopted ao long ago.. -In the outer pre
cincts the system has not been adhered
to aa closely as in' the central portions
of the weat side and east-side."

spring In Hawthorne park' bad been
r.losf-d to the public by a high picket

against the approach of the typhoid fe

Pr. Pohl stated that the springs were
Inspected twoi weeks ago after some
people had been observed drinking of
fine T water. ThsTs'tato bacteriologist
and at least one chemist are re
ported to have found germs in the
water. Hawthorne springs formerly
furnished nearly all of - the drinking

and Jim Prloe, both of ths Camas Prai
rie country, are now lodged in ths Uma
tilla county Jail, charged with horse
stealing. The arrest of Price snd Con
nell marks another chapter in the story
of thievery which comes from the south
end or the county.
stockmen of - that vicinity have made
complaint of horses and cattle being
stolen, and a close watch has been kept
for some time. There seems to te a
strong esse against these two men,
though they deny their guilt, Their
last alleged thert was that or a nana or
20 . horses from Camaa Prairie, which
they are said to have driven to Baker
City to sell. , i
. They were at North Powder last Fri
day, where they were redbgnlsed by a
German farmer named Pahl, who noti
fied the authorities. Pahl said they
had offered him 160 if ha would forget
the fact that he had once kflown them
as Connell and Price In Umatilla county.
Under the namea of Brahem and Smith
they then sold seven horses to Oscar
Jacobeon, a Haines farmer, for $450.
Jaoobson was apprised of the suspicious
circumstances surrounding ths men,
brought the horses In and got his money
back. The men were held for a time
at North Powder, but released later.
The arrests at Baker City was the next
development In the case. .
