The city council met Tuesday
night in its regular semimonthly
meeting. The following officers
Mayor Hubbard. Auditor and
Police Judge. Clement: Council-
men Brown. Hopkins. Titus. Samp
son and Gottfreid.
There were an unusual number
o f visitors present. Mr. Dooley,
the pool hall man and about fifteen
boys of sixteen or eighteen years
o f age were present. A stranger
might have imagined that he had

C. A., but the trend o f the conver
sation would have quickly disillus
The regular business o f the
meeting was taken up and thrash
ed out. The condition o f the banks
o f the Luckiamute just below the
bridge on Bridge street was dis
cussed and generally agreed that
it would be a disgrace to a Mex
ican town to say nothing of being
allowed to exist in Falls City.
The city marshal said that he had
repeatedly notified the residents
not to use the river banks as a
dumping ground for refuse mat
ter. but they had paid no attention
to him. The council ordered that
the old water tank back o f the
Madena hotel be torn down and
that the city marshal use drastic
means, if necessary, to induce the
people to clean up the banks o f
the river. The Mayor said that
he would, in the near future, is
sue a proclamation for a general
The matter o f accepting the
curb on Third street was taken up
and the council decided not to ac
cept it. This curb has been under
“ fire"’ for many months and it
appears that the end is not yet.
A fte r the business o f the meet
ing was disposed o f the visitors
were invited to tell their troubles.
There was much nudging and
winking, but none seemed dispos
ed to be pushed out into the w e t
Councilman Titus broke the ice for
them by saying that he was o f the
opinion that the “ Club” proposi
tion should be settled in order that
the city marshal might know how
to act in regard to its operations.
It then developed that Mr. Dooley,
proprietor o f a pool hall, was en
deavoring to turn his pool hall into
a clubroom where checkers, domi
noes. pool and billiards could bo
played by members only. There
was much feeling aroused against
the scheme from the fact that
minors are admitted, whereas the
State law prohibits minors from
playing in public places.
jority of the council expressed
themselves as prefering that there
would be less cause for objection
to boys playing pool in a public
place than to hide behind doors
and screens, even though under
the fatherly care and protection
o f a janitor. The lawmakers in
their wisdom, believing that pool-
room association bad for the youth
o f the land, passed laws prohibit
ing it, and so far, no petition has
yet been filed by the fathers and
mothers in the State asking for its
repeal. Another objectional fea
ture is that the club room is to be
kept open on Sundays.
Soon after Mr. Dooley’s advent
into Falls City tw o young gentle
men, (minors) waited upon the
city council asking that they in
struct the city marshal to close
his good eye when passing pool
halls where, perchance, a minor
might be recklessly punching the
balls. This club proposition, aris
ing, as it were, out o f the ashes
o f blasted hopes, strengthens the
belief o f the council that it is only
a subterfuge in order to evade
the State law.
