The city council met In regular session
Monday evening with Mayor Gilliam,
Councilmen Quaid, Cohn and Warnock,
Recorder Richardson, Marshal Rasmus
and City Attorney Woodson, present.
Kaloon licenses were granted to Mc-
Atee & Swaggart and Groshene & Gor
A petition was read asking the coun
cil to cause the removal of Gilliam &
Bisbee'a powder house from its location
at the south end of Gale street. Discus
sion of the matter, however, brought
out the fact that the building was cot
being uf-ed as a powder house, only a
place for storage t gatoline and the
matter went over to the next regular
meeting, as the petition did not state
the correct purpose of the building.
A communication from R. F. Hynd
was read in winch Mr. Hynd offered bis
lots in the north part of town, consist
ing of about three and a half acres, to
the town free of cost, providing the city
will convert the plot into a city park
and expend at least $ioo a year for im
provements. While the council realized
the fact that the proposition was s
splendid one for the town and a very
liberal one on the part of Mr. Hynd,
they did cot feel justified in accepting
the same at present, owing to the con
dition of the city's finances. A vote of
thanks was extended Mr, Hynd for bis
kind and generous offer to the city.
Under the order of new business the
council listened to quite a lengthy dis
cussion of the Sunday closing and anti
g"hbling movement. Sheriff Shutt in-
tiuduced the eubject by quite a long
talk. As he bad previously notified all
the saloons of the county to close their
places of business on Sundays and to
prohibit gambling, he appeared at this
meeting to solicit the cooperation of the
city ofliciala in the execution of his
order. Mr. Shutt said that he recog
nized the fact that the town's financial
condition was such that it needed all the
revenues tt could legitimately get, and
that the best way to retain the revenues
derived from saloon licenses is to cause
the saloens to close on Sundays and
prevent all forma of gambling, otherwise
they would be voted out under the local
option law. He asked the council
pa 8 s an order directing the city officials
to cooperate with him in carrying into
execution these reforms.
Judge T. W. Ayers, in a short talk,
took the same view of the matter as the
sheriff He thought unless some refor
motion was brought about the' saloons
would certainly be voted out at the next
Dave McAtee wns the only saloon
man present. He stated that he was
perfectly willing to close his saloon on
Sundays, and be thought all the other
saloon men would be willing to do the
same, provided all other business houses
were closed also. But he did not think
it rignt to close one class of business
houses and let others remain wide open.
E. C. Ashbaugh said he and partner,
A. L. Ayers, of the Pastime, were wil
ling to close provided all other business
houses were closed.
District Attorney Phelps, in discus
sing the matter of Sunday closing, said
that he did not fuel justified in proeecut
ing canes under this law at present, as
the question of whether execution of the
Sunday closing act rests with the cities
or with the state officers, is now before
the supreme court, and until this mat
ter has been disposed of he thinks it
unwise to bring other cases up at the
expense of our city, Mr. Phelps also
stated that he thinks it best for the city
to regulate its own affairs and that Sun
day closiug comes directly under the
At the conclusion of the discussion
the council took the matter of the sher
iff's proposition up, but found that the
ordinance relative to Sunday closing
was defective, and that It would be nec
essary to pars another ordinance before
the city could cooperate with the sheriff,
and aecordiniily the city attorney was
instructed to draft a new ordinance, and
until that time, which will require
about two months, the matter will
probably rest as it Is, unless the supreme
court pannes upon the law tn the In
terim, in which, cuso the sheriff could
take the matter up nnder the coopera
tion of ihe district attorney.

Agriculture In Rural Schools.
The resolution passed by the National
Grange Jaiiaa-Mi '' " "' "
fn the science of agriculture in rural
schools, is one of the most important
matters discussed at their annoal meet
ing, and if they succeed in getting na
ture's study introduced in our public

schools they will have performed a great mission a clear title to the right of way
pleta Road by Next May.
The O. R. & N. Company, last week,
transferred to the State Portage com-
good. As they claim, "Agriculture is
the great baeic industry of the nation,
pon which all other industries and all
other professions depend," therefore
every boy and girl, whatever their life
work may be, should be instructed in
the fundamental principles of that which
constitutes the basis of all wealth and
prosperity. There are good reasons for
the introduction of this in our public
schools. The education of the country
boy and girl has been, "away from the
farm and towards the factory," and the
city. The study of civica, of geography,
of history, acd of biography, has created
teals of greatness that find their ex
pression only in city life. Even the so-
called ''nature study" has been largely
sentimental and urban in its leaning.
The result has been a continual and con-
tantly increasing exodus of the most
nterprising young men and women of
the rural districts to the city. The in
troduction of the study of the principles
of agriculture in the rural schools pro
poses to make the farm the center of in
terest and to make all its industries, its
economics and its sciences the subjects
of thought and study. We believe the
introduction of the study ef agriculture
in our common schools will be a most
heloful agent in securing intelligent
farm management, and we hope to see
it given a trial. Rural Spirit.
Back from Missouri.
J. 8, Young returned Monday from a
month's visit with his parents and other
relatives at his old home in Harrison
county, Missouri, at the woild'a fair at
St. Louie. This was Mr. Young's first
visit to hia native heath since be left
there twenty-eight years ago, and he
says he enjoyed the visit immensely.
On Thankegivin day he was present
at a family reunion given in his honor. 1
There were an even fifty relatives pres
ent at the reunion, including his par
ents. He says while there have been many
changes wrought since his residence
there, yet old land marks were as
familiar an of yore, end the (aces of
many old friends of his boyhood davs
were aa familiar as though he had seen
them a year ago.
Mr. Young says there have been vast
improvements since he left there; that
the old log house has been replaced by
modern dwelling, and the little old log
schoolhouse has been crowded out by
commodious structures. The average
farm consists of about forty aores, so
thickly has the couBtry become settled.
Land sella for (50 to $75 an acre and few
transfers at those prices.
Another Building for' Fair.
The great demand for floor space at
the Lewis and Clark Centennial has
made it necessary to construct a new
building for the accommodation of ex
hibitors. The executive committee, at
the earnest solicitation of President
Goode, has voted to construct an ex
hibition palace which will provide 6o,
000 feet of additioual floor space. Noth
ing has been decided as to location or
cost, but it is expected that at least $50,-
000 will be expended on the new build
ing. Work will be begun aa soon as
possible, and the building will be ready
for exhibits at least a month before the
Fair opens June let. It is thought that
the additional 60,000 feet of floor space
will be eutlicient for the accommodation
across the company's property, between '
The Dalles and Celilo, for the use of the
portage road. The sum of $1 3,598 waa
paid for the right of way, and the strip
of land now belongs to the state of
The contract for the construction of
the portage has been let to J. McGabe
of Walla Walla. '
The preparatory stages of the road
have been passed, and the undertaking
is now in shape for actual launching.
A meeting will be held within a few
days by the state portage board, the
Open Eiver association and its contrac
tor, and the terms will be finally gone -over,
and the documents made ready for
signatures of the state portage board.
As soon thereafter as the contractor can
get bis equipments ready, work will be
gin with a view to the completion of the
road by May 1, 1905.
Three months ago the state's repre
sentatives told the Open River associa
tion that the work could not be done for
the money on hand, and that they were
not in a position to build the road.
The association, by its executive' com
mittee then went carefully over the
ground, and by estimating the probable .
amount that would have to be ra sed by
private subscription to complete the en
terprise, proposed that it would furnish
a contractor who would d 1 t'.e work
and take the association's guarantee for
the amount that might be iwjatred over
and above the balance of the portago
road appropriation now remaining iia
the state treasury.
"The amount that will be required for
completing the road will be far above
the sum now remaning from the state
appropriation," said a member of the
association today, "and we have a large
undertaking on our hands to raise the
The final specifications are for a road
that will be much superior to the Ham
mond read, on which the original speci
fications were based. The state has
oeen extremely particular in all its re
quirements, and the result is that the
portage road will be a first-class railroad,
budt with new iron. It will have new
equipment, and more of it than was at
first proposed. The association has no
doubt of its ability to raise the required
money, and Contractor McGabe shows
equal confidence by his disposition to
enter into a bond and to take the guar
antee of the association that it will
supply the deficiency.
The people of Eastern Oregon are de
termined to push the work to comple
tion by May let, next In order that the
road may be in operation to move next
year's crops. If not done by that date,
high water would prevent its comple
tion until the following fall. '
