D. A. Cords of the Pacific Pine
Needle Co. expresses some annoyances
at the reported disposition by tho city
council of a petition presented to that
body at the last meeting, concerning
tho storing of oil In quantity near the
plant of his company. A report of
the proceedings says that the protest
was against tho way the Standard
Oil Co. had been leaviug their build
ing oiM u aud that after who discus
sion, the city attorney was instructed
to write to tho company requesting
that they bo moro careful as to their
storage of oils aud keep their place
closed against trumps and others.
Mr. Cords says that either the words
of the petition had utterly failed to
impress the council with thoir mean
ing or else the transfer is laboring
under a misapprehension. Ho says:
"Tho gist of our memorial to the
board was to call its attention to the
imminent danger from fire to which
our company, toeether with a ureal
many others iu our neighborhood are
exiowd, because of the close prox
imity to these highly inflammable
materials, and whoso existence within
tho city limits no other town or city
would permit. In citing this con
stant and great meiiauce to us, we in
cidentally mentioned the carlessness
of tramps, often seen sitting aud
smoking alongside the oil house, this
danger, however, is of secondary im
portance compared with the more
serious ones which coufront us at all
times. The main point, and which
we lay particular stress on, is that
the storing of vast quantities of oil
and gasoline offers an imminent and
never ceasing risk to the surronudiug
projierty and may eveu involve the
loss of lives.
"We therefore Insist upon the re
moval of such combustibles or shall
be compelled to hold the town resjion
sible for the consequences. "
Naughty Boys &t Merlin.
Constable Ruiidln went to Merlin
last Wednesday aud arrested two boys
woh had been jumping on trains.
The boys were taken before Justice
Ladd, who promptly gave them 10
days in jaiL The fathers of the boys
came forward aud paid 20 each and
the boys were 1 iterated. Hereafter
no Merlin boys will molest the train.
From the number of boys iu Grants
Pass, who play around the train and
jump on the cars while the freights
aie s vib'hing, it is surprising that
none of them are hurt The Grants
Pas authorities ihoold take the same
action here beforo some boy gets kill
ed or crippled for life. Mother, is it
your boy that plays around the train?
