'We're from Missouri," declared
tho city council with united vole
last night, after hearing a communi
cation from O corgo J. Walton, presi
dent of the California-Oregon Power
company, to the effect that the com
plaint of tho city fire chief that the
nuts on various fire hydrants were
not uniform and firemen had to car
ry an assortment of wrenches to turn
them. The hydrant nuts aro stand
ard said tho power superintendent's
letter, and he believed any good
standard wrench would turn them.
"Mr. Walton has a car," said one
of the council. "I propose wo Invite
him to take the chief some day and
make an investigation of all the
hydrants. Let's Instruct the clerk to
so write him." And It was so ordered.
The light and water committee re
ported favorably on the installation
of a fire hydrant on Main street east.
near Dr. A. A. Soule's residence.
The street commltteo reported a
visit to Michigan avenue, where res
idents petitioned for temporary side
walks last week. They found exist
ing sidewalks narrow and Inadequate
and recommended wider walks, of
temporary wooden construction, be
placed on both sides of the street..
Right of Way Deed
A deed was presented to the city
by Durge W. Mason and M. S. West 4
Of right ot way for sewer, drain or
water pipe, across the lake front
property of Messrs. Mason and West. .
This is the property on which certain
portions ot streets were vacated by'
the city, ln consideration of assur-
ance that It is to be used for a manu-1
facturlng site. '
The ordinance vacating tho streets
came up ror final passage last night
and was adopted.
There was considerable discus-
sion of paving the alley between Main
street and Klamath avtsnue. from
Fourth street to Seventh street. It
was the unanimous sentiment that '.
the alley needed paving but no ac
tion was taken.
Tho installation of a sidewalk on '
Main street from the Baldwin hotel .
to Center street, came up again.
Councilman Brandenburg said that !
in view of traffic conditions, an ac
cident was likely to occur there at f
any time and a pedestrian injured. &
As the foot traffic is forced Into the
street by lack of sidewalks, he fear- f
ed that the city would be liable In a
damage action and might be forced i
to pay moro than It would for side
walk, providing the owners of prop-
erty refused to build tho sidewalk.
Because of lack of funds the council v
hesitates about tackling the Job, ,.
which requires considerable rock ex
