NOW HAS PARTNER,
St. Johns Lumber C'inpaiiy tins
Alndc n Change.
l?or several weeks rumor has tie
dared that the St. Johns Lumber
Comjwny or, as it is better known,
the Douglass mill was about to m.II
its holdings, and that A. S. Douglass
was to retire from active work
This rumor wus largely unfounded
although a change wns contem
plated, Mr. Douglass has !een very anx
ious to withdraw from the clerical
and financial part of the IuiiiIkt
business, and he was looking for u
partner who would relieve him of
the vast responsibility which so
large u business forced tton him,
Daniel Hrecht, who is well-known
by utl the older citizens of St. Johns,
has just bought an interest with
Mr. Douglass and has already
assumed direct management of the
concern. He is well-fitted for the
business: Is a careful, conservative
business man in all ways: and has a
large acquaintance in this city and
the surrounding community.
The company will continue so
far as yet made public under the
old name, and Mr. Douglass will
continue to keep busy as of old. It
is the intention of the firm to
enlarge the plant and add new
machinery to the equipment as
rapidly as the trade will justify.
The fears expressed by some that
one trust would secure control of
both the St. Johns Lumber Com
pany and the Cone Lumber Com
pany and then close them both was
wholly groundless, as may be seen
by this issue of Tub Rrvikw.
Business is brisk and to all appear
ances this mill will continue to do
its share of business and still hustle
Next Monday at Cedar Park it
Is exnected that several thousand
laboring men of Portland will cele
brate "labor day ' with a day ot
festivities. Arrangements are being
made on a large scale for this affair
and the carline is looking for a very
Governor Chamberlain and other
notable men are scheduled for
speeches and the exercises are
programmed to commence at eleven

dancing will be in profusion till a

XosiKiner w.is tbi list of iliiuoud
offences re.ul than Mr. Hriee pro
dttcetl a set of riMilutions favoring
the suspension of . II. King and
I1. J, Peterson and asked its adop
tion. The?e resolutions otdered
City Attorney Greene to bring
charges of im jx-aclnnctit against
the accused within Ave days nnd
stipulated that the defendants must
plead, demur or answer within five
days later. Moved by Mr. Shields
and seconded by .Mr. Jvu wards that
the resolutions be adopted.
Mr. Peterson lelieved that no
second had leeu made to the motion
because he considered .Mr. Iidwards
not a member of the council: but
Mr. Leggett, who is president of
the council, arose to put the ques
tion. There was a bit of movement
at that time as to Mr. Leggett s
right to act as head of the board
but he declared that he was presi
dent of the c0111n.1l and had the
right to assume control at such a
time. Shields, Hriee and Iidwards
voted yes: Peterson, Liudquist and
iliompsou no; and Mr, I.eggett
announced the question carried.
Without doubt Mr. Peterson had
no right to voje in a matter of his
own personal interest but he fol
lowed a recent precedcilt. Mayor
King then questioned Mr, I.eggett s
right to the chair and Attorney
Oglesby Young declared that, ac
cording to the charter, a removal
could le made only by a 5-7 vote of
the council. lie considered the
action of the board null and void:
no specific sworn 1 barges had been
made: anyone could rcjeat rumors
but unless they were substantiated
by an affidavit they were worthless.
Attorney McGarry then stepped
to the front as an advocate of C. D.
He considered the matter too trivial 1 X
to fool uwuy time over: Iidwards,

tug the consent of the council, than !
a lawyer had a right to pajiers filed
in 11 legal case without consent of
the court: and he could furnish it
hundred authorities to back his
asset t ion.
Mr. Kdwnrds said he'd like to be

When these charges were settletl heiX
intended to leave the council because 1 ?
of his other interests: but he would $
not leave it with his reputation!;
under a cloud,
Mr. Vaughau then askel that the
question of whether or not Iidwards
was yet a iiieiuiK:r of the council be
nt to vote. Mr. McGnrry said if
it was put he should insist that Mr.
I.eggett act s moderator. The
question was not put. There was
quite .1 bit of sharp legal sparring
iiiiii augiiu proved His elegibility
to a seat "in the Until war-r-r-d"
by his mental activity.
Finally Mr. I.eggett declined it
was time the council did biisiue.vs.
Mayor King said that no legal
business could be done with Mr.
Iidwards in the council: Mr. I.iud
quist .said he'd vote "no" 011 every
question brought up: and Mr. Mc
Garry declared that he should
advise Mr, Iidwards to vote on
In the mutter of having Attorney
Greene press the matter niMiusl
Mayor King and Councilman Peter
son it was decided to change the
word "iuijisachiiient" to 'charges J
Mr. Hriee said he came to the JJ
meeting to transact regular business J;
but lie didu t see how they could
do it unless they put away the rag
chewing till the close of the meet
ing. It wns decided that bids should
le called for sidewalks utKin Oswego
street: but the matter was carried
over till the next meeting although
a new resolution must bo adopted to
have grading done.
Report was received upon the
new street from Hraasch's addition
to Jersey strest.
Messrs. Hiiimau, Leonard and
Stearns were made a committee to
appraise the matter of the continua
tion of Gresham street.
Mr. Hriee returned the new dock
crowded idmost to its capacity with
freight which is allowed to remain
by owners, and the council will pass
an ordinance to charge demurrage
on all sticlt goods not removed
within a brief season.
Resignation of J, Henry Smith,
city engineer, received and accepted
with regret. His resignation was
accompanied by plats, plans, field
notes, etc, worth several hundred
dollars. W, W. Goodrich was
apjKjinted as his successor and the
council ratified Mayor King's ap
pointment. Matter of the new ferry franchise
was deferred to adjourned meeting.
