More Unjust Criticism. ' The Observer, in its unwarranted criticism of the former street super intendent, has a lengthy article iu its last issue in support of its position in whioh the arguments advanced show clearly the editor's deficiency of knowledge of the subject. We do not acoose him of wilfully misstating the case but believe him to be the victim of misinformation whioh should be oorreoted. In regard to the formation of the pond on F street, it is true that the most of this water should be turned into Gilbert oreek front Third street. But as it would require a considerable expense to do this tbe street superin tendent has net tbe authority in him self to do it In such matters as this he is under th direct orders of the street oommittee of the oounoil. The editor should he informed of this. In regard to tbe sewtr in Block 10, Boundary Line addition, the Observer says that it was not pot down over six feet in any place, wbile the specifica tions call for a dsptb of 10 feet. But Mr. Gilfillan declares very emphatic ally that this sewer is down the fall 10 feet and to the required depth for the 'whole distance aud that all the holders of tributary property oaa connect wltb it The Observer is fearfully and won- SOME BARGAIN POINTERS News Notes From the Business Men to Headers.

When the first heavy rains came In the Fall the Seventh street sewer at the intersection of A street settled three feet in places, exposing The strett superintendent repaired it so promptly thai very few people knew of the open ditch cutting one of the l most traveled streets of the city. And if the Observer has not heard of the settling of the main sewr trenches it is In a large measure be- cause the prompt and eliicleut work i of the officer in question left no reason j for much talk on the subject. The charge of being too kind with j some sections of the streets aud not kind enough with othors is one that I is prnbahly made of every strevt sup erintendent under the sun and is un worthy of notice. I That indefinite lateral sewer in the ; "north end" which was dropped a j foot against the grade cannot be ! identified by Mr. Gilfillan, who is not aware of any such thing. ' The idea of blaming him with the conditions at the Kiverside school is actually sickening. The flooded base ment came from the main sswer. The three main sewers discharge into one pipe which would not carry th Mow. Consequently 'he main sewvrs "backed up." But the street super intendent had no control over this, either past or present. Not a single oue of the Observer's accusations stand investigation. Leave 1-1H tf Wood Fir, Oak and orders at Music Store. Pine. MAKKIED.

Without a doubt, the most enjoyable event that has been held in Grants Pass for a leng time was Ihe dancing party given by a number of Ihe Grants Pass girls at Clemens' hall on Thurs day evening. Everything was managed by the girls and they ' proved themselves eqnal to the occasion in every particu lar. The ball was beatutifully and artistically decorated, the floor in per fect oonditien and tbe mnsio, fur nished by Messrs. Dean, Wharton, Cheshire, Maboney and Miss Ruth Dean, was exceptionally good. Punch was served all daring the evening from a bootb at one end of tbe ball, and four young ladles aoted as floor managers, while "ladies choice" was the order of the evening, and .to see the boys xsated around the room wltb broad smiles beaming on their faces, was oonolusive proof that things "looked good to them." A very large crowd had responded to the neat little invitations and by 8:30 o'clock the room was filled with the happy young people and everyone pronounced this dance the success of the season and all are auiious that the girls repeat their triumph in the near future and give us another dsno- ing party as thoroughly enjoyable as this one proved to be.
