MANY BILLS ORDERED PAID Extension of Time Will Be Given Paving Company In Which To Finish Street Work. Forest Grove’s City Council met in regular session Tuesday eve ning and transacted little more than routine business, adjourn ing at an early hour. The War ren Construction Co. presented a request for an extension o f time upon their contract for paving, asking until May 1, in which to complete the paving of two blocks on First Avenne South, which had been delayed owing to the rain and the slowness of the railroad Company, whose tracks occupy the thoroughfare, in rais ing the grade. This was spoken upon favorably but referred to the city attorney for an opinion as to the effect it would have upon the contract and bond. A petition from the local grange requesting the council to take action seeking to safe-guard the young girls of the city from undesirable characters was re ferred to the vice commission. The Washington -Oregon Corpor ation. through its representative, C. W. H^ill, presented a propo sition for. the taking over of the city lighting plant, which was tabled with but slight discussion. It was arranged at this meet ing for the city to keep in re pair all streets lights, regardless of by whom erected. The report of the city treas urer shows a balance in the gen eral fund of $2,837.61. In the Library fund $364.85. Street bond fund $1,322.43. Road fund $963,48. Building fund, $94.85. Bills to the amount o f $1,638.21 were ordered paid from the gen eral fund. CATHOLIC YOUNG PEOPLE GUESTS AT SAINT ANTHONY’S RECTORY The young people o f St. An thony’ s Parish and missions of Cornelius and Gaston took po ssession o f the Rectory last Thurs day evening, and seldom have young people enjoyed themselves more. About forty were in at tendance and music, songs, danc ing and games were pastimes which seemed to make the hours fly, A delicious lunch served by the young ladies was the last in the c o u r s e of “ enjoyables.” During the evening a club was formed to give parties during the winter. Committees were appointed to secure a place and music as well as to issue invita tions. It is hoped by these par ties to eliminate all public, as well as Saturday night dances, so prevalent at present. PUBLIC SCHOOL BUILDING AT BANKS TO BE ENLARGED AND REMODELED BANKS, Ore., In accordance with the decision o f a majority of the tax-payers o f this district, expressed at the bond election recently held in this city, the present school building is to be remodeled and at least two rooms added. Owing to the inclement weather, actual work will prob ably not be undertaken until spring. When the contemplated changes have been made, Banks will have an up-to-date and mod ern school building in every way.
