Legal Action Must Wait for
Formal Hearing Called
Later by Council
Remonstrance Dwindles to
Eight Names With One
More Off Saturday
The city council's first session
In August can aptly be escribed as
a vacation meeting, for the moot
ed question of releasing 43 feet
of Trade street to the Oregon
Pnlp Paper company Is assured
a place of first importance on the
council's evening program.
A final action on' the matter,
however, will be impossible to
morrow night. No ordinance for
the action has as yet been given
or second reading .'although the
ordinance has been prepared and
the vacation' proposal discussed
before the council. .
As the matter stands, the coun
cil mar decide to call a special
hearing oil the issue and to piac
the bill on third reading at that
time. The public would be In
vited to take part in this session.

Only eight of the original 22
remonstrance signers have their

Trade street, removed her signa

other signers have indicated they
will withdraw their protest if the
paper mill makes a binding agree
ment to end the cinder nuisance,
once and for all.
Provided the legality of the va
cation ordinance, with or without
protests can be established, the
council will approve the measure.
This 'was apparent Saturday
from a poll conducted by The
Statesman. At least eight votes
are assured for the proposal and
several non-committal councllmen
indicated they were leaning to
wards the vacation.
Different saving clauses will be
attached to the affirmative votes
of some of the aldermen.
One of the councllmen wants
the council to prlvide that the
street revert to the city provided
the paper mill should ever "win
