To this there can be no objection, provid
ed that the company proceed according
to law to obtain the right of way. Dnt
when they attempt to make a cat's paw"
of the Common Council for such purpose,
serious objections may be interposed.
Acting upon a petition presented to
the Board signed by property owners and

be granted, a committee was appointed
with instructions to procure legal advice
respecting the matter. On Tuesday even-

Orepin City, April 10th, 18G9.
K. VT. Randall, J. W. Cha.se, Wm. Broutrhton
Gentlemen Your communication of the 12th
inst., in which my opinion is asked upon curtain
points under investigation in the City Council, is
received, and I have given the matters referred
to such attention and investigation as I have been
Your first question is: "What privileecs are
vested in the City Council of Oregon City to grant
a right of way along and across any streets or
alley.-i, to any individual or corporate company,
which right of way would necessarily occupy the
Whole, or greater portion 01 a street, so tar as the
right 01 way shall be granted r
1 he dedication ot streets in a town or citv is to
the public, and for the use of the pullic. The
rights of the public in streets are : 1st, Of loco
motion; they are avenues of travel. 2(2, Of trade
and commerce of all kinds. 3d, Such other rights
as arc incident and necessary to the convenient
and safe enjoyment, and profitable use of the
other two named.
The corporation may permit a person, for in
stance, to ue the streets to lay down water pipes
and sell ater, as a private enterprise, because
water is necessary to the cleanliness, and health
and comfort of the inhabitants of the town.
It may permit the laying down of the usual and
necessary pipe for gas, because it may be necessa
ry or convenient tor lighting houses.
Upon the same principle, the City Council may
allow the streets to be used for conducting water
to mills nilS manufacturing establishments, be
cause these enterprises and occupations are for
the public good, and seC"re general prosperity.
These last three must, however, bo so arranged
and used as not to permanently cioiroy or mate
rially abridjre the right of the public it travel
over and trade upon every portion of the street.
The City Council would not have any rigk to
grant to any person, or corporation, a right of way
in any street of the city, when the tight of way
would necessarily occupy the whole, or greater
portion of the street, so as to prevent travel over
such street, and would not for any purpose which
would even slightly inconvenience the public, un
less for something which was for the immediate,
not remote, good of the people of the city or town.
The rule as I understand it, is sulstantially
this : Anything the corporation could itself do
for the public good, in the streets, it may do by
agents; or by licensing private person to do the
same; but if it could not exercise the riht itself
it could not license another corporate company,
or an individual, to do so. This is the general law
on the subject but under our statute law there
is an exception. The City Council has a right to
permit any company, formed for the construction
of any railroad, McAdamied road, plank road
or clay road, to use the public street, and under
certain circumstances, to regulate the tolls which,
may be charged ujvon the portions occupying such
streets. fee Sections 23, 24, 2o, 2(S, 27, and 28, of
the Cencral Incorporation Law pagts and 666
of Peady's Code.
Whether a canal is included in the things which
may be licensed in a street, is not so clear. The
word is used in the lirst three sections named, but
in the last three sections named the word "canal''
is studiously omitted, and these, are the only sec
tions which give the City Council any control over
the matter of license or permit. It may therefore
be well doubted whether the city can grant the
right of way for a canal. The safer way, I think,
upon mature consideration, would lie to leave the
corporate company desiring such street for a ca
nal, if there should be one such, to proceed by
law to condemn and appropriate such street.
This would bring up all these questions to be
finally settled in the Courts.
Your next question is : " If the Council should
vacate any portion of a street or alley, iu whom
would the right be vested '"
This question is fully answered by Section 7 of
Chapter "ti, of the General Laws of Oregon, found
on page 927 of Deady's Code, from which it will
be seen that the vacated street or alley would be
come the property of the owners of lots or parts
of lots abutting or bordering upon such street or
alley. 1 call tne attention ot the Council to the
whole chapter of which I have spoken, which
points out the steps to be taken, in order to vacate
a street or alley; Sec. 8 deserves careful attention.
Your third question is : " Is the city responsi
ble to adjacent property holders for damages, in
case it should grant such right of way, or vacate
a portion of a street or alley !"
Section S ot the Act above referred to, shows
that the city , cannot vacate such street or alley
without the consent, in writing and dulv acknowl
edged, of the property holders adjoinim?. It will
be seen at once that such property holders could
not recover damages for the vacation of the street
or alley, when they consent to such tacatiin; and
this is rendered the more certain, because the
property vacated would est in the adjacent lot
holders, and they could protect the same as anv
other that belontrs to them.
But I cm of the opinion that the citv would be.
liable to damages to property holders, if theCouu
cil should grant the rivht of wav over or in a
street for anything which could not be carried on
and used, reasonably, in connection with the right
of the public to travel over, and trade upon the
same. It was long a question whether cities could
grant the right of way for railroads and street
cars upon the streets, but the Courts finally decid
ed that it was only affording another and new
mode of travel, and could be exercised in common
with the modes which had previously been in use,
and that such might be licensed, or the rightof"
way for the same be properly given. ...
Hut where a street had been given or dedicated,
to the public in a city, the citj; would not, be au
thorized to grant a right of way for a canal which
is tor the benefit of one or more persons or corpo
rations, which would prevent other modes of trav
el. Streets are intended to afford access to adja
cent property by all the usual modes of travel
whic.li can be used in common ; but a canal of
such a character would destroy the value of the
street to adjacent property ladders..
Two members of your committee have asked
me verbally, whether a conditional vacation could
be made of a street. 1 am of the opinion that it
could not. The only mode of vacation is pointed
out in the statute.
The only way to accomplish the end in vipn-
that I see, would be to take a bond in advance of
the vacation ot tlie street, with a penalty suffi
cient in liquidated damages, to secure the per
formance of any promise made by any person or
corporation praying for such vacation. But when
the order for vacation is once lesrallv made, it is
and must be, in its nature absolute and uncon
I have not referred to the authorities generally
uion which I base these opinions, because you
would not have the books at hand, and such
reference.. hence, would be useless. But I would
say that my examination haij been careful and
I am also permitted to sav that I have shown
the principal portions of this to my partner, Capt.
ZMeCown, aud he agrees with, the conclusions ar
Very Respectfully, Yourob't scrv't,
W. CAREY JOHNSOX, Lawyer.
After adopting the report of the com
mittee, the 1. T. Co. presented a peti
tion, asking the vacation, and the Council
ordered that legal notice be given, (which
appears in another column) for the hearing
of the application.
We recommend a careful reading of the
opinion of Mr. Johnson, and would attract
particular attention to the suggestion that
abend should be taken in advance of
the vacation, with a penalty sufficient in
liquidated damages, to secure the perfoim
ancc of any promise made," etc., which
may be applied to individual owners, as
well as to the city.
On Monday last Michael Reese, Esq.,
one of the wealthy men of San Frarrcisco.
in company with Mr. B. Goldsmith of
Portland, paid our city a flving visit. We
were pleased to make the acquaintance of
Mr. Keese, and learn from him his dis
appointment at finding so much more than
he expected of Oregon. He intends to
return here again soon, and we feel flat
tered to know that from what he seen he
seems determined to invest largely and
become identified with the growth- and
prosperity of this State.
TO THE POINT.
The Oregonian of the 20th contained a
long effusion signed " West Side' append
ed to which wa3 the "remonstrance'" of
fa. G. Reed. Esq., presented to Senalors
when the amendment introduced by Sen
ator Williams was pending. This article
was no doubt the " dying wail " of the
" West Side,,, but it has been appropri
ately answered by East Side," from
which we extract one paragraph only.
" East Side " says:
Notwithstanding the experience of the
past, the article is characteristic of the
source from whence it emanates. Al
though misrepresentations may have for a
time succeeded, and have enabled Gastoo
& Co. to humbug the people, and to enter
into improvident and illegal contracts
with certain municipal corporations, and
to gobble up houses and lots and farms
belonging to certain enthusiastic and gull
able individuals, still after they have been
so thoroughly found out; after the State
Legislature has repealed the act of 1866,
guaranteeing interest on their bonds; af
ter another company has been designated
to receive the Congressional land grant;
after both the old and new Secretaries of
the Interior have refused to recognize
them as being designated to receive such
grant; after Congress has passed an act
extending tha tim for tlw PV.t. s;lt
Company to file its assent to the act of
Congress of July 25. 1866: after the city

court from signing the coupons of the

alter the authorities of Yamhill and Wash
ington counties have found out Gaston Sr.
Co., and the one refuses to execute or de
liver its bond3 provided for in its contract
with the company, and the other refuses
to pay the interest upon the bonds; whn
Sedlack and Johns and others, victims of
misplaced confidence, who hold the worih
less stock of the company in exchange for
valuable property, denounce the West
Side as an unmitigated humbug; when, in
short: to use a very expressive phrase en
tirely applicable to the case. Gaston &Co.
have " run the whole thing into the
ground," and discharged their hands and
stopped word, one would naturally sup
pose that that enterprising firm would not
be foolhai Jy enough to still persist in try
ing to humbug the public, or to suppose
that any one could be found to place con
fidence in anything they might say. The
article in question is a gross misrepresen
tation of facts from beginning to end.
"East S;ds" follows with a long recount
of facts in the case, and clinches his ar
gument with an answer to Reed's remon
strance, which is signed by Hon. Geo. L.

OREGON CITY SEMINAR Y.
Editor "Weekly Enterpjkisk :
Please allow me, through the medium
of your paper, to inform the public more
generally than has been done, of the ad
vantages and the perfection of our school.
I am glad to be able to state that the Ore
gon Citv Seminary is a first class institu
tion of learning, which may be seen by
an examination of all the branches of a
thorough English education taught. Prof.
S. I). Pope, an Honor graduate of the Uni
versity of Queen's College, has secured a
reputation as a teacher, second to none in
the State. He may be rigid in his disci
pline, but his kind administration of the
laws necessary for government, has per
fected the grade system of our school.
The school is conducted entirely on the
free principle free to all pupils residing
within the limits of the City Corporation.
The City Council has lately passed an Or
dinance making the school a graduating
institution. This is what I have been
striving to make it for many years.
I rejoice that I can safely say. that
no schf.ol can be in a more prosperous
condition than the City Seminary at jires
ent. At the last quarterly examination of
written questions in the higher branches
of studies, the average answers were from
75 to 99 per cent. The daily attendance
of pupils is over . 200. divided into four
separate Departments. Indeed the pa
rents of this city ought assuredly to con
gratulate themselves on having an institu
tion of graduating powers in their tiiidst.
and yet a free school. No city in Oregon
can boast of greater educational advanta
ges than Oregon City, costing less.

Thirteen and a half Centu:
hies ago.- A curious discovery,
kept secret for fourteen years, lias
just come to light at Havana. The
workmen engaged in digging a
canal near the present railroad sta
tion, iii 1824, found a skeleton
with a breastplate of line gold
buried face downward. The pre
cious piece of armor, which weighed
ix pounds, was broken up and the
pieces sold to jewelers. Two large
pieces, which appear to have been
the shoulder bands, are covered
with chasing and enamel, have been
given up by a jeweler in Faenza,
but the remainder are probably
lost. It is known that Theodoric
buried the body of Odoacer, after
his murder at Havana, face down
ward; and the Italian antiquarians
suppose that this golden harness is
really that belonging to the first
King of Italy. Theconquest of It
