$M !N. Tim exact floured should bo
Woul l like to know bow this
Mr. Mi'DoimM tiaid that this was
very ovi'lently h mistake, tbat the
mmmiil ehi.uld lie ?!!!.
.Mayor llliiivern iis.-ured Mr. r'rather
that any mistaken of tbis kind would
lm recti lli'ii.
At thin juncture Mr. lleudursou,
tl:n city enijiiH'cr, -tepped forward hlcI
uiiido a pica with tbt; gentlemen Pres
ent, not to do anjtliiiiK more to delay
tt.e coiisti nctioii of t he sewer. He
said it wan nut the timo for squah
liliiiK, that the tiood of the city was
tit i-talic, that the sewer should be
constructed with as little delay as
ujsilile. Ho hat, he said, a large
assessment to pay; bo didn't know
how much i was, and didn't care;
he would try to pay it some way.
ilr. 1'eunh t'.en asked why the
length of the proposed fewer was
chunked ; that he understood origin
ally it wan to extend to the school
house only; that the people up where
ho lived didn't need a sewer aud
didn't want it.
Mr. Kin ly replied to this by saying
that at first it was the intention of
the committee, to only extend the sew
er as lur as the school house, but
that eventually it would have to be
done and that it nas better to do it
la. L., Smith spoke in tavnr of hav
ing the v ork done as soon as possible,
th ;t the city v as in an uiisufe tiutii
tniy condition, that the taxpayers
owed it to tl o r families and the Kell
er d community to i.o lender endanger
their health bv Laving tilth aud sew
;ig' pollute the streets. Ho bad a
lai'L'e assessment to pay on lots which
hud no houses on tliein and were not
in any way benefited at present, but
was perfectly v. iliimj to pay it.
Mr. l'rnther asked the indulgence
of -tile chair and c:id that he did not
want to be misiindeistood that he was
perfectly willing to pay the assessment
on nil his property except the lot in
Mowers.' addition, and that be would
not pay if he could avoid it.
Mr. Hartley thought that all should
be astcf.-ed equally aud did not UU-dei.-land
why Winans addition was
not included in the assessment. Mr.
I.'ooi! also would like to know why
all ie not asM'iscd equally.
Mr. K.arly said that owing to the
contour of the country it was not pos
sil.lo to drain the land in Winaus' ad
dition into this sewer. This state
ment was corroborated by Mr. Hou-!er:-on.
Tl e mayor asked Ml. Rand to take
the eh:: it and said that he wanted to
I,j r iiiirsMl! beforo the people he
had tol i that the sewer would not ex :-y faitlior than the school
hou-e, .ml that he v.oulld like to
!"vi- t i e i latter- (It layed a little in
unit . t. i gie t! e;'i an opportunity to
have u hearing. If possible ho would
like to i;ave council delay tho matter
sc.eial days. Was in favor of the
sewer project, but wanted everybody
In have a fair show.
Mr. I'ii iy siiid that ho wished to
say in behalf of the sewer committee
that if "as their earnest de-ire to
give evety one lair treatment, that lie
was thoroughly in accord on this
point v. i! h i he mayor, but that the
time provided by the charter for
training the eriliiinnco giving council
the right In a.-s'ss for this purpose
would expire Nov. 12th. The com
mittee had engaged an attorney to
draw up this ordinance who was fa
il, iliar with the matter and who would
b at in to do it. iietwren now and that
dale, but. a'tir that date would not
be ai !e to give it, his attention for lie would like to say that
the ei. in a i' tee had worked hard and
1''if! lly and that if the matter 'was
tl h eu now it. would have to go over
until aiii tl. i r council meeting and
much of l he work connected with it
dun" over a;: in However, ho would
I 'lLfgist thai the mayor call a meeting
ol ihe c iiiueil for either Tuesday or to hear any further objec
tion:. .Nlr, K.ool said that he would bo out
ii town V. edi i-slay. but thought the
idea was a ny '..mod one and would
he v -illiug to ree ain all day at the
ciiiuu i! looms li esday if neiessary.
Af. Mi- i iina!d staled that this was
pe b et,., satisfactory to him. but that
is a i iiih r vl the sewer committee
he Pi I, tn .1. nnj more delays were not
to be eon-ddcied, that the committee
'.It tit: I o v.- doing what was for
; in ! et-i i oil -Is of the city and was
sttisiU-l that .,s soon as the sewer was
pni in iiiiv in'ocrty bolder would
lie i ongrat i.ia! ing himself that the

town and stopped at your hotel. You
took me in your buggy to show me
the valley aud incidentally to sull me
real estate. As we rode along the
du.-ty roads you told me of the won
derful resources of Hood River and
seemed to be trying to impress upon
ir. y mind that Hood River would sure
lv c me to the iron t as the iiest fruit
section of the Pacific const. We got as
far as (Tucker's) bridge across Hood
River when 1 thought I ha ' enough,
and we tinned back. Upon r aching
the hotel 1 looked up at you as you
still spouted Ho id River and thought
you were the biggest liar in ten
states. Now I ask as a favor, Mr.
Rand, that you kick me from one end
of this car to the other."
"Why should I kick you?" inquired.
Mr. Hand.
"liecause I didn't take your word
for it and boy a quarter icetion of
that land iwi oil. led for 10 au acre.
It is now wtitu ijiAU t.u acre."
"How much bave you made since

Death of Mrs. .Martha Harden.
Mrs. Martha Hayden, Bister of our

died November 1, at Columbus, Ind.,
at the rge of '2 ears. Mrs. Hayden
came here some time ago to spend ber
renaming days with her brother, but
could not become reconciled to the
hills and mouutaius of Hood River,
and longed to be laid to rest at ber
old home. She left bere September
lti, and returned to Columbus, where
she lived until her death.
She was a devoted, sincere Christian
lady, was a member of the M. E.
church nearly all ber life, was very
fond of ber bible and spent a greater
part of ber time f late years reading
its pages. She was beloved by all who
knew ber, and ber true, faithful Chris
tian life will remain a shining light to
her many friends as long as tbey shall

Ministers' Association.
The ministers' association met iu
regular session Monday morning at
the U. H. church. After devotioual
services Rev. U. M. Heeler presented
a timely paper ou the kind of preach
ing the world demands vs. the kind it
needs. The paper was very much en
joyed and was stimulating. A sug
gestive discussion followed being par
ticipated iu by Revs. Spigbt, Elkin,
Evaus and Gilmore. Reports were
giveu us to the Sabbath's work and
matteis of local importance to the
moral life of the community were dis
cussed. These meetings are entirely
free from church and social gossip,
but they do deal with living questions
of civio aud ri;bteous value and will
aim to unite tbe entire membeiship of
our churches iu work of moral growth
and l ighteous living. The next meet
ing will be at tbe U. B. reading room
at 10 a, m. November lit.
