The Emperor's American-Shipi
Although Germany has been, mak
ing special efforts to establish her
self in the front rank as a naval con
structor, yet when the emperor want
ed a yacht combining the best mod
ern ideas he placed the ' order in
America. It is surely a recognition
of American ability and workman
ship. Our country also excels all
others In medicines. Take. Hostet
ter's Stomach Bitters, for instance.
It has been over fifty years since it
was first introduced, and its record of
cures during that time has placed it
in the front rank among medicines.
It is recommended by many promi
nent physicians " as an excellent
spring tonic and blood purifier; also
to cure heartburn, indigestion, dys
pepsia, constipation, la grippe and
malaria. A trial will convince you
of its value.
As to the Dog Tax.
So far 92 dog licenses have been
taken out by people who put a great
er value upon their. dQgs than $1.50
each. These have been taken out
since the 1st of April, and if it con
tinues at this rate a larger number
of clogs will have the privilege to run
at large than during any previous
year. However, a great many pers
one who own dogs have not as yet
taken out licenses and if they should
miss their dogs they will know that
the "dog catcher" has gobbled them,
and is holding them for tribute. The

TO ENFORCE THE ORDINANCE
FOR CLEANER STREETS
Street Commissioner Fee Calls the
Attention of Those who Litter up
the Streets to the Law.
In another place will bo found a no
tice signed by Street Commissioner
Fee, warning the citizens of Pendle
ton from throwing any trash, dirt or
refuse matter in the streets of Pen
dleton hereafter, under penalty of a
L There is an ordinance which pass
e"d the common council of the city of
Pendleton, May 31, 1S99, relative to
this matter, which reads as follows:
Section. 1. No person or porsons,
company or corporation, shall here
after haul or convey through or upon
the streest or public ways of tho city
of Pendleton, manure, dirt, stone,
gravel, rocks, slops swill or other ma
terial, the scattering of which will in
anywise injuriously effect said
streets of public ways, or the public
health or cleanliness of said oity, un
less the same be so hauled in a tight
bed, box or barrel, so as to prevent
such material from scattering, drop
ping or spilling up on tho streets or
Section 2. That no person or per
sons, company or corporation shall
hereafter scatter or deposit in any
manner any manure, dirt, stone, grav
el, rocks, slops, swills or other mater
ial upon any of the said streets or
publis ways, the scattering of which
will in anywise injuriously effect said
streets or public ways or the public
health or cleanliness of said city.
Section 3. That any person or per
sons, company or corporation violat
ing any provisions of this ordinenco
shall, upon conviction thereof, be
punlshdd by a fine of nor mora than
?50 and Imprisonment in dip city
jail for not more than 25 days, or by
both such fine and imprisonment, and
in default of the payment of such
fine shall be imprisoned in the city
jail one day for each ?2 of such fine.
Section 4. That tho use of any wa
gon or other conveyance for the pur
pose of hauling or conveying any of
the materials mentioned in section 1,
of this ordinance, without a tight bedi
box or barrel thereon so as to pre
vent the scattering or dropping of
said such material, shall be prima
facia evidence of the violation nf this
ordinance by the person, persons,
company or corporation, so using 1he
same; it being the intention to pro
hibit the use of dump boards and the
use of wagon boxes that are not
tight on the bottom- with tight sides
and end gates in place.
It is the intention of the city ofil
cials to see that this ordinance is
strictly adhered to and in speaking of
the matter yesterday Street Commis
sioner Fee said that he was going to
enforce tho ordinance wherever
found violated regardless of whom it
was and those who throw any kind of
trash out of their yards Into the
streets or scatter refuso thereon
may look out or they are liable to be
brought up before Police Judge M)c-
Court and fined. It has been the habit
of a great many within the" city lim
its to throw leaves and trash out of
their yards and fill up low places in
the streets with It and It Is mainly
against this practice that the street
commissioner has had to fight.
The city officials have waged a war
against anything that will tend to
mar the looks of Pendleton and this
move is commendable and should be
encouraged and upheld by every cltl
zen who has the welfare of the town
at heart. If every man who owns
property or does-business in tho city
will lend their aid to this movement,
it will materially help out tho efforts
of the officials and it will not he long
until a marked change will bo notice
Already considerable change has
been made aud in many ways the
town begins to put on a neater, an
pearance since the edict went forth
from tho city council, through Mar
slial Biakley, a few days ago that all
back alleys and front yards as well
as sidewalks and streets, would have
to be cleaned up and kept looking
decent. The marshal has posted new
notices saying that anyone caught ex
pectarating on tho sidewalks would
be arrested and fined and since that
time a great change has taken place,
In many places great puddles of to
bacco juice could bo seen on tho side
walks of Main street, where men had
stood and expectorated, and these
have almost disappeared, Tho city
officials are to be heartily congratu
lated for this and they will no doubt
see that the move toward cleanliness
and a better Pendleton along these
lines does not lag again.
These same prohibitory ordinances
have been on tho city's statutes for
several years but they have not boon
enforced to tho limit and people have
forgotten that there had over been
