That Is the Question before the Council
Concerning a City Policeman.
The topic that called forth n most
vigorous and spirited discussion at
the council meeting Tuesday even
ing was whether the city of Rcud
should dispense with the services of
a jiollceman. Under existing con
ditions the office of marshal, an
elective one, carries with it a salary
of $ 1. 00 a year, while the city po
liceman, appointed by the mayor,
commands n salary of 65 n mouth.
The custom has been to let one man
fill both positions.
It is maintained by a part of the
council that the city does not now
need the services of a policeman.
That there is nothing for such an
officer 10 do and therefore hissalary
should be .saved to the city's funds.
Hy those favoring the continuance
of the office, it is claimed that inas
much as the policeman also acts as
a fire patrolman at night, it would
he a very risky add foolish thing to
discharge the policeman and leave
no one to act as a guard against the
work of an incendiary or to give
the alarm in case of an accidental
fire. It is argued by the oppou
cuts to this view of the question that
il a fire patrol is needed nit effort
should be made to secure such serv
ice nt n smaller wage.
That is the condition in which
die question stands. Decided opin
ions are held bv both sides to the
controversy. The discussion waxed
hot, was very spirited and long
drawn out. The council is about
evenly divided 011 the -question nud
final decision was deferred until a
The ordinance creating the new
office of chief engineer of the Hcntl
lire department was passed. This
officer is to have full command of
all companies and npparntus in time
of fire and is to exert n supervisory
control of the whole department,
subject to the orders of the council
and mayor. It is nit appointive
office nnd carries nit annual salary
of $25. Mnyor Goodwillie appoint

engineer of the Rend fire depart

dered his resignation us n member
of the council. In n short time Mr.
Triplett expects to move with his

LOOKING FOR A MILL SITE.
Parties from Idaho Dcslro to llrcct
(irltt MU on thfl Deschutes.
Mr. Morris of Cliuo palls was in
town last Monday representing
Prickett & Morton of Payette, Ida
ho. These gentlemen purchased a
mill site at Clitic Falls and had pre
pared to erect a flour mill there.
They shipped part of their machin
ery to Clitic Falls and were waiting
to rpacii'c the balance of it when
they learned that the water tower
they were planning In utilise was in
such shape that tiu.'y would be de
nied the usa of U for a time at least.
Whan they learned that their
title to the water power nl Cline
Palls was questionable Messrs
Pricktttt & Morton sent Mr. Morris
to Laidlaw to sea if a good milt site
could be sccurad here. He looked
at several places where good water
power was available and was more
favorably impressed with the power
and mill site owned by 11. V. Nich
ols than any other in this vicinity.
Mr. Nichols offered to make them a
liberal concession if they caw fit to
locate here. Laidlaw Chronicle.
A MYSTERIOUS ORIGIN.
Projcx pourul In a Well, Apparently
Wasted from Soiy Rock.
"Dad" West tells a story of find
ing a small frog about the size of
the cud of your thumb encased in
the middle of n large stone which
he broke open one day while quar
rying rock for building purposes.
The frog upon being freed from its
prison hopped off as frisky as could
be. This story has points of sim
ilarity with the following oue which
appeared in last week's Madras
I'rcil l'islier lm six little twt In hi
well which he miyi he wouliln't mvnu for
100 scrva of Intut in the middle of the
towtxitcof l'iihcrvillc. These ore six
Kiitall vrnler froiM. Their origin is un
known hut ai far ns Mr. l'Ulicr knows
the first savr the light of day nbout a
year nj;o when he struck water in the
well nu his place. At n denth ot IK) feet
he )ud failed to find water and he wan
atill working in solid lmuili rock. A Iiiu
hlnat of lewder was tint in and when it
had been touched off and the atiioke had
cleared away, they went down and found
the six little frogs, which Mr. l'islier
uys the blast had liberated from a prison
of Kolitl stone. There was no evidence of
any crcvirc through which they might
have come, though this blast alo gave
Mr. l'islier his llrst water in the well,
two or three small streams aloutthe site
of n straw coming out of the otherwine
apparently solid wall of stone.
The origin of the frogs is 11 mystery,
although there have been other instances
in which frogs or liiardshacleen found
at ureal depth in apparently solid rock.
A uelghl)or of Mr. I'isher found a toml
under similar circumntances at a depth
of over W) feet.
The iirchcnee of the froga in the well
U all the more difficult to account for
from the fact that this is a froglcss conn
try, the presence of frogs even on the
Mir face of the ground being unknown.
