London, May 7.— The tolling of
the great bell of St. Paul’a Cathe
dral at minute intervals between
five and six o'clock this morning,
an office only for the sovereign and
Arch-Bishops of Canterbury and
York, conveyed to the countless
thousands of Londoners and its
suburbs the first intimation of the
death of King Edward.
Popular interest in the D ew ruler
is overshadowed by the universal
grief at the death of Edward VII

City Council Meets.
The regular monthly meeting
of the City Council of Coquille was
postponed from Monday eveniog
until Wednesday evening of last
week, at which time the meeting
was held in due form.
A t this meeting the project of
raising the fire-bell tower twenty-
five feet, in order that the bell may
be more plainly beard in down-town
districts, was brought before the
council. This matter was referred
the fire committee for further con
A move is also on foot to raise the
north end of the Moulton Street
bridge to prevent the mud from
washing onto the bridge. This was
referred to the street committee.
Certain parties applied for the
privilege of connecting a water pipe
with the Front street main to run
north to middle of block four of
tbe original town, theDce 100 feet
east, upon which two hydrants are
to be attached for fire protection.
The parties in this block are willing
to bear the necessary expense of
putting in tbe pipe and hydrants,
aDd will provide 100 feet of regula
tion hose with nosle for each hy
drant. They ask only the privilege
of attaching to the mains. This is
a verv enterprising move on the
part of these people, and would no
doubt prove a great thing in case of
fire in that closely built-up block.
Application was made by a num
ber of the property owners on the
north side of Front Street for a ten-
foot concrete sidewalk from the
Baxter Hotel corner to the west
line of R. S. Knowlton’s property.
This matter was also placed in the
hands of the street committee.
The ordinance governing tbe
width of stairways in public build
ings was so amended as to allow of
narrower ones in tbe smaller struc
tures where the numbers gathering
therein are not large.
The regular routine business and
