City Council Con
Two Lijht and Power Fraccbuei
Ailced for. Much Difference of
Opinion. Matter may be Put
up lo Toten
On Monday evening the city council
met in regular session with the follow
ing members present: Chairman Har
rison: Councilman Lench. Knllson
j Hales and Dick; Recorder Todd.
I Motion was made and carried assess
ing property on the north end of 2nd
Ave, KhH for street Improvements.
The improvement is a stretch of
(planking which hsi been laid at a cost
I of $111.60, and is assessed to Garret
Ward on the east side of the street and
to the Mount Vernon Creamery Co. on
the west side of the street.
On motion a walk is ordered in on
the south side of 12lh street from
Stillwoll Ave. to 2nd Ave. WcsL
Motion made, and carried that assess
ment be levied for graveling west of
3ru St., also planking alleys in Block
1 and 2 between Slillwell Ave. and 2nd
The time set for levying assessments
is Nov. 17.
After the regular routine business
was Iransscted and bills were allowed.
The ordinance relative to an electric
light and power franchise which Mes
srs. Small and Urie are dciirous of
securing was taken up for discussion.
Th. site has-been secured up the Trask
River and the county has granted the
company a 30 year franchise, and now
a franchise from the city of Tillamook
The council expressed a desire to
have ssnt) explanations in regard to
tho matter whereupon Attorney E. J.
Claussen introduced Mr. Siebicn of
San Francisco, who has charge of the
promotion of the proposition xa'J rep
resents monied men of that eity. Mr.
Sicbien stated that the projpects for a i
water power plant to furnish light ani '
power for Tillamook City and its fut- ,
ure needs, looked very good and was i
sure to come, but that it would come
easier if the people of the city were in
sympathy with tho proposition. He
dwelt to some extent upon the future
prospects of our city and spoke of the
prospects of a pulp mill for our town.
He contended that water power would
be much cheaper than steam power ,
and would give us a strong leverage in
securing manufacturing plants.
After Mr. Siebien had completed his
talk Councilman Keld.on gave his .
views in regard to the matter which ,
were to the elTect that while he did
not want to stand in tho way of prog- j
ress nt the samo time he felt that our I
present lighting company was giving ,
us very good service, and as it had haJ
many obstacles to overcome in the
past, he felt that now when condition.
werei'mproving they ought to be allow
ed a free field at least for a time
Councilman I.ench stated that he had
as much sympathy for tho present
company as anyone had, but that he
thought that if the new company want
ed to como in here and uevelopo our
re.-uurces and build up the country and
give us a cheaper light und power, that
it was up to us to take advantage of
this endeavor. He said that you can't
build up a town unless you allow capi

The Japs are helping the rebels all
they can secretly and they came near
getting themselves into trouble with
the Germans. The Jap officers told
the rebels that the Germans were fur
nishing guns and ammunition for the
Northern army so the rebel told too
Germans to move or they would fire on
them, but the Dutchmen wo.ildi't go
but began to investigate and found
what the trouble was. Then the Japs
wanted to apologize but the Dutchman
told them to get otf his ship and make
his apologies to the German govern
ment. We have been having quite a bit of
trouble getting fresh supplies. They
all come from Shanghai and most of
the meat is spoiled when it gets up
