A Sewer Needed.
Hood River April 22, 1902. Editor
(ilacier: Now that tlie water question
is prominently before the public anil .is
being vigorously discussed pro and con, it
seems to nie to be propitious time to
bringup the question of maintaining the
reseirt supply pure ana uncontaniinaiea.
here i no question 88 to wherd the
source of the supply -comes from that
mis me springs supplying our city nil
water. It 'is the great grand basin lying
north of Indian creek and south of the
spring heads referred to and which dis
trict is being rapidly covered with dwel
lings, barns, stores, etc. Seepage from
the cesspools.outhoiisea and stables will
very soon find its wav down and contam
inato'the water supply, bringing all of
the questionable blessings attendant
upon the use of impure water such as
diphtheria, tvphoid, etc. As the soil in
the region referred to is only from two
to fotlr feet in deepth before reaching the
gravel beds, and the gravel deposit from
20 to (iO feet above the water lead, it
mtiKt be apparent to any one that a good
healthy cesspool well worked will reach
and pollute the water supply in a very
short time. Now the remedy or pre
vention of this trouble is neither expen
sive nor difficult. Natural grade of the
land ard its sandy character makes it
an ideal section for sewer system. This
sewer could be turned into Indian creek
and all danger from contaminated water
supply ayerted. It occurs to me that
this matter is up to the citizens of Hood
River in such npe that it demands
their im mediate . attention , and our
council lMldlBCton the question with
out delay. , H, C. Cob.
Assessor Schmidt. -Hood
River, Apr. 30, 1902. Editor
Glacier: It tuigUt perhaps properly be
said that I am quite presumptuous to
thus publicly criticise the policy and
services of our Assessor C. L. Hehmidt;
but I plead as an excuse the uncalled
for and severe arraignment of our Dep
uty Assessor M. II. Nickelsen, former
county judges, and "the majority of the
taxpayers" given publicity through Mr.
Schmidt's letter in your lust issue. In
this community it does not require the
endorsement of Messrs. Gilbert, Evans
or even that of Mr. Schmidt to establish
the fact of Mr. Nickelsen's integrity in
every attrrbute of the character of a good
citi.en. Doubtless, too, the former
county judges ware influenced to a great
extent by the financial condition of the
taxpayers, and were possossed of suffi
cient intelligence to recognize the evil
effects a too burdensome taxation would
have upon the future development of
the county, a condition which now, as
they evidently foresaw, is rapidly pas
sing away, enabling us at this time to
easily bear a burden of taxation that in
those earlier years would have been
overwhelming. These facts the great
mind of our assessor seems to have
failed to grasp. It is true that all men
embody in their natures inherent weak
nesses. This may be seltiehnese in some
and in others egotism, and yet in others,
ignorance, if this may be called a weak
ness; and while it is true that once in a
while a man may be found whose selfish
ness preponderates his sense of justice
and honesty, that "the majority of the
taxpayers" of Hood River and the val
ley are so alllicted I flatly deny and
challenge Mr. Schmidt to furnish proof.
So much for our weaknesses and faults,
let us look at our friend Schmidt. When
I tind a man who arraigns judges, offi
cers and "the majority of the taxpayers"
of any county or community in one
sweeping denunciation, 1 think certainly
"there's something rotten in Denmark.1'
When I see this man in great travail of
soul over the wrongs of one class of his
constitucnta,with the power in his hand
t alleviate the distress without injury
to the otherg ; yet, from his throne as
despotic as the czar of Kussia.arbitrarily
double or treble the burden on the necks
of a few selected victims in order to
lighten the loadg of the others, and this
without any apparent regard to the
property value of the victim, I wonder
whether the weakness of this man is ig
norance or vindictiveness, whether he
Knew no uetier or was trying to get even
for some fancied slight or wrong. We
do and notwithstanding my hum
ble, insignificant station in the com
munity I take pleasure and pride in
affirming that we as a community de
sire to pay our full share of our county's
taxes. V ery few, if any oour citizens
would evade them, our worthy assessor
to the contrary, nevertheless; but we
don't like this "monkeying" and on
election day we hoie to sing to Mr.
Schmidt the old song he probably often
heard in his youth, beginning:

The Question of Fire Protection.
Hood River, April 30, 1902. Editor
Glacier: For the benefit of the taxpay
ers of Hood River I wish to say that I
have consulted an attorney :'n regard to
the proposed ordinance that is now be
fore the council, granting a franchise to
the Howl Kiver r.iectric Light ami t ower
Co. for six years, and he calls my atten
tion to sections 33 and 34, pages 14 and
15 of city charter, and as only a limited
number of our citizens have copies of
the charter, I copy the exact language
of said sections, bearing on the subject,
which is as follows:
Sec. 33. "To grant the privilege of
franchise of furnishing water and light
ing the streets to any jierson or persons,
or corporation, upon such terms and
conditions as may be just; but no siki
(rant or frunch'me. hatl br exclusive, or
shall prohibit the council from granting
similar privileges or franchises toothers.
34. "To fix a maximum rate of wharf
age, rates for gas or other lights, for
carrying passengers on street railways,
and water rates; and the city of Hood
River shall never deprive itself of the
right through its common council, of
rcguhitiiiRund adjusting any such rates
so that the same shall he reasonable for
the services rendered, at least once in
any period of two years."
There is no question that this proposed
franchise is exclusive. 1 If it is not, w hy
are certain reservations made in it? Any
reservation would be superfluous in a
franchise that was not intended to be
Again, it conflicts with the charter in
that it provides for a six year contract,
w hich certainly conflicts with section 34
quoted above. In conclusion will say it
is so evident that this ordinance is' in
conflict with the charter, which is the
constitution of our city, that counsel ad
vises it would be void and of no eftect if
passed. I have a lengthy opinion from
the attorney, which I will pubiish later,
touching on all parts of the proposed
-ordinance. So much for the legal as
pect of this matter. Now from a moral
stand point is it just for taxpayers in
the residence portion of the town to pay
for fire protection for a few business
meu.und from a business stand point, is
it a good prousitiiin to pay to this com
pany the sum of f 75ti a year, or $4..Vtti
lor six years for water to ho used for
tire purposes only? Ii the city pays for
water it should certainly have the right
to use it for Hushing sewers, or any oth
er necessary use. I consider a sewerage
system the most inirtant question be
fore the people of this town today. Tax
payers will notice that the proposed or
dinance cuts off all these privileges.
There is another company standing
re dy at any moment to furnish this
town water for tire protection, (tfoiffry
cm of ehitryr, and they are willing to
put up a bond to be forfeited in case
they fail to put in a supply of water
that will be acceptable to tire insurance

A deal has been on hand for several
days for the purchase of the D.P.&N'.Co's
holdings by theColumbiaRiver&North-

At a meeting of the stockholders yester
day afternoon the offer of the company
was virtually accepted at $225 a share,
though the deal will not be consumated
for perhaps a week. The original stock
was $100 a share, and the stockholders
felt it was to their advantage to dis
pose of the line now before the extra
competition was put in by the purchas
ers, as they intended to place a new
line of boats on the river.
We understand the name will be re
tained and the line' run independently
as at present. Also that W. C. Allaway
will be retained as general agent. Had
the new company done otherwise they

It is the opening season of the fly
here now. Mr. Fly has come upon us
suddenly and without preliminary or
tiresome ceremony. With his usual git-up-and-git
temper, familiarity and so
ciability he has announced his intention
of staying all summer and as late in the
winter as circumstances and business
v Incidentally I am reminded nnd em
brace this opportunity to tell you that
time flies, too. The two flies are radi
cally different, though they seem to jog
along quite harmoniously together.
Other things fly too, as were witnessed
the severe 30 minute storm' here last
week. You might be disposed to laugh
at me if you had seen me holding on to
a peach tree with the driving wind, hail
ami rain, disheveling my beautiful curls
anil soaking me with filtered ice water.
1 did not go out of the house merely
the sake of the bath and I was not laugh
ing. I mention these things so you may
not form w rong conclusions. It is true
I have no regular bath house, neither
have I a storm house. Some members
of a young amateur cyclone com
pany turned themselves loose about a
month ago in the south east part of the
ciry,and undertook to paint the suburbs
according to the up-to-date ideas.
Leaving out scattering work I mention
two cases as especially worthy of skill
ful and potent operators. They whirled
a school house one revolution, then
lifted it 50 or tiO feet, and, as suddenly,
let all hands loose w hen" it droppad to
earth, each side falling outward to the
ground and ceiling and roof falling fiat
on the floor. 1 he school children had
run to homes they could reach, and the
teacher had left about four minutes be
fore the crash cahie. Though a flattened
mass of timbers, two-thirds of the win
dow glass were unbroken. Figure up
how many of the occupants would have
been alive if the crash had come while
they were all in school. A quarter mile
east of the scnool house there was a
large oak tree w ith massive spreading
branches, within 25 feet, of a very frail
old shanty, w ith several rickety old sheds,
pens and coops and barrels close by.
At the same moment the school house
dropped a flattened mass some invisible
power, as though in' wanton fiendish
ness, grasped the large spreading arms
of this magnificent oak tree and twisted
them off at about an average of five feet
from the body and dropped part at the
foot of the tree w hile others hung from the
stubs from whence they were broken.
these latter were cut on ahd two or
three cords of wood obtained. -Looking
on this scent1 shortly after its occur
rence I could not discover a single loose
flapping board on shanty or outhouses
had been moved or the slightest disar
rangement anywhere else among old
boards or boxes. An old rickety leaning
pipe projecting through the roof from
the cook stove stood quietly smoking its
pipe as though the deadestof dead calms
iiad ever prevailed in its. vicinity. I
used to think I'd like to be a philoso
pher but I don't much hanker after that
business now, I want an easier job. If
cyclones will let nie alone and give me
a wide berth in their summer outings
I will not press an explanation of their
phenominal freaks. The storm, of last
week left many footprints in partially
or wholly w recked buildings, but no loss
of life in this city. It came with so
little warning (about 2 o'clock p. m.)
that schools were in full blast, and the
volume of -unadulterated, unaffected,
unpremeditated bawling and squalling
in infinite variety, according to reports,
was a sight to 'hear in connection with
the momentary production of "theater
pandemonia." The large, handsome,
brick-veneered north school building,
just completed a few weeks ago, was full
of children and as it creaked and shifted,
large plate glass crashing on all sides,
and the brick veneer falling off, only
eye witnesses are able to reasonably
comprehend the confusion and terror
which reigned at the time.
