The regular meeting' of the city
council Inst Monday njght showed
almost a full house P. J. Peterson
being the only absentee. The
audience was smaller than usual.
The first of the evening after
the adoption of the minutes was
devoted to discussing the communi
cation from City Knginecr W.
Goodrich regarding the domestic
water condition and a proposed im
provement. There was much
pointed comment ttiwu? the matter
and many iHirtiuent remarks
The talk finally merged to the
fact that the council desired a mass
meeting of citizens to express their
sentiments and it was officially
decided to have the tuicctinu on
Saturday evening of this week. A
legal call for the same may he
found in another column of this
Several other communications
from Mr. Goodrich then followed.
These were mentioned in Tint Uh
Viitw last week. The one pertain
ing to the re-naming of several
streets was placed in the hands of
the proper committee and the one
favoring numbering nil business
places, vacant lots, and residences
was favorably received.' The com
munication stating that several
obstructions were now to be found
protruding over and uimn the
public sidewalks was considered:
but it was thought that for the
present nothing would be done to
bring expense or bother upon those
who had erected such places.
The chief business of the meeting
was to have been the granting of a
ferry license a ferry to add to the
business of St. Johns iiid accom
modate the several thousand people.
The council had agreed to settle
the matter at this meeting but a
strong plea was made to have the
settlement laid over till Wednesday
Chairman I.eggett, of the com
mittee t) investigate the ferry
I proposition, reported that he could
'say practically nothing more than
he had previously refuted. lie,
with the rest of the committee, had
viewed the pnierty across the
river where the llrink ferry had a
lauding, and it looked good to him.
He had endeavored to learn from
T. T. Parker who formed the local
combination and had privately
learned of three of the men but of
these, one, G. W. Cone, had with
drawn from the enterprise.
Mr. Maun, representing the
Drink syndicate, presented a fair,
NOW TO GROW.

Now that the assertion made in
Tun Riivncw rcgardiim the advent
of the Notthern Pacific railway has
been verified by James J. Hill",
ciliens of this community realize
that this means much to St. Johns
in many ways and there are some
not slow to take advantage of it.
There will be a great investment
of railroad capital during the next
few years in this state, and the
advent of the Northern Pacific
along the north shore to Vancouver,
tnettce to bt. Johns nnd Portland, is ff
but a starter which will stimulate1

other routes. None of these roads
will cut into any of the existing
"traffic arrangements" among gen
tlemenbut they will, each and alt
of them, enable good towns to build
up along their lines and thus make
the investor In farm lauds feel that
his market is near to him. This
enhances all values and brings the
rate of taxation to a minimum
J. J. Hill is lauded to the skies
just now because he has seen an
opportunity to make a neat bit of
money by planning a new road and
promising to push il through to
Portland in time for the iyo wheat
crop. Mr. Hill may take his
praises now with good grace: it
may not be long before he is being
skinned because of some refusal to
pay a levied tribute.

council had promised definite action
this evening and now it was about
to ostpoue the question in order
that a lody of unknown men might
make exertions to secure what
would be almost impossible for
them to use.
Mr. Parker took tin? floor to ex
plain matters. The company he
represented was not an incorporated
concern nor was it yet complete;
Mr. Cone's withdrawal had crippled
the prostK'Ctive organization; but
he did not mak.t known those with
whom he was associated, Mr.
Parker did not U-licvc that the city
should pay for improving property
of those who owned the riverfront r
his company would agree to pay 10
per cent of gross receipts if the city
would make approaches for the
lauding or three jer cent if it did
not: he had never agreed (he said J
to pay 20 per cent. If his company
built the roadway to the dock it I
would le 30 feet wide and a bond
in the sum of 51,000 would be
executed for the faithful perform- j
ance of all promises.

constituency no one outside of Mr.
Parker knew. He said he came in
good faith: his clients were known

way and already had a fine land
ing upon their property. His boat
was ready and, if the council
would but say the word, work
would commence the next day. His
company would keep up a 60-foot
roadway from the railway track to
the landing and would look after

The marshal doesn't like that lo

to chase a dog five blocks and then
have the owner of the canine tell
him to go to Astoria.
Now it will le different. If the

thereafter the tail of Mr. Dog or

It is now up to the owner.
