WARREN ROAD To lie KeIrcssel ami Kollel for Win lc Traffic According to Judge Hattan, the Wurren road, from near McNulty creek brldgo through Warren and as far as ScappooEO creek, will he given temporary improvements at once. Tho crusher is now being set up and will turn out inch rock and screenings which will be used for filling the many small holes and re dressing tho road, and it will alsc bo rolled. At present tho road is in bad shape, and on account of its having had no attention for scmo time is if.pidly going to pieces. Tho county ourt thinks that the temporary im provement to he mado will keep it in fairly good condition until next jummer, when somo permanent work will probably ho dono. Tl.o roller which has hosn in use in the Deer Island road has been nought back to St. Helens, work on hut stretch of ro:d being completed for the timo being. A small gang of men Is still employed doing miscel laneous necessary work. NO LONGER MAY STOCK RUN AT LARGE Sixty days from November 17 it will be unlawful for stock to run at largo In Columbia county. I!y tlu ;cant majority of 36 votes, the peo ple of Columbia county have willed that stock must bo kept in some in- clcsure. Tho penalty for tho first offense is $10, and $20 will l:e the ' flno for each subsequent offenso. In the election returns the Mist gave tho ma.'crity as two votes, but when tho county clerk car.vassad the votes ho found tho stock law had passed by 36 majority. The difference in -ho f.gu.es is on account of errors made by several election hoard 1 ! -.tlerks. Remember, from now on i keep your cattle tied up or in a fenced pasture, else you will bo sub 'ect to r. fine.

BONE DRY AFTER LEGISLATURE ACTS Attorney General Makes Killing to This Kffet t. Tho "hone dry" constitutional amendment will not go into effect in Oregon until the legislature acts, ac cording to a ruling of Attorney Gen eral Brown. Until the legislature provides laws to go with the amend ment, tho present law which permits the importation of two quarts of whisky or 24 quarts of beer every four weeks will bo in effect. Mr. Brown said tho issuing of a proclam Jtion by the governor early in De jember, declaring the result of the election, would not affect the sltua- l,on- The legislature will meet Janu- ary 8, and it will probably take sev eral days to enact a law providing regulations and penalties to carry out the amendment adopted. WILL INVESTIGATE COST OF PAPER CJovernmeiit Trade Commission Will IVobo Matter. Investigation of the advance In price of news print paper has been started by tho government trade com mission and a report will be rendered ?oon. The advance in news print paper began early in 1916 end has, continued to climb. The contract price beforo tho beginning of the raiso was about $2 per 100 pounds at the factory, and now it Is hover ing around tho $7 mark. The com mission has found that tho average cost of manufacture of news print to bo less than $33 per ton, or $1.65 per cwt. Market pricas on somo of tha materials used have been ad vanced to quito nn extent, but not so much so that the manufacturer can demand $7 for what he formerly sold for $2. The question applies not only to the newspapers, but to the whole public, since the cost of wrapping paper, bags, paper nap kins, etc., have gone up by leaps and hounds. Everyono is willing to pay ADJOURNED CITY COUNCIL MEETING PRUNING OF EXPENSES Majority of Council Favor 12 Mills to Cover F..Venso.s. The city council, pursuant to an adjournment Monday night, met Tuesday afternoon. Several permi's for repairing and constructing of bulldingr, were granted. An ordinance vacating certain streets in Rose Hill addition was lead tho first and second times. A delegation from the Woman j Club requested the council to mal.i some appropriation towards the e: penee of the city library. On motion of Councilman Ballagh the council voted to contribute $75 per year and also furnish lights and wood for the library room. Claims against the city for lights, labor, etc., were taken up and after investigation were allowed. As to the rate of assessment to cover city expenses for the coming year, a majority of the council thought 12 mills would cover the expenses, and voted in favor of this amount. On the assessed valuations, 12 mills will raise approximately $8,000, which is about the same as was raised last year. The budget of expenses as submit ted was not adopted, but laid over until next meeting, when the council will see what can be done towards a retrenchment in city expenditures. Tho matter of buying an inexpens ive fire truck was taken up and dis cussed, but no definite action was taken. The ordinance calling for a special election for the adoption or rejection cf """endments to the charter was j lald ovor untu next meeting, Tlle recorder was instructed to again write Frank L. Smith relative to the claim the city had against him for services of the firemen and dam age to fire apparatus at the time his barn at Scappoose was on fire, and demand payment of tho bill. It was the sentiment of the whole council that in order to keep city expenses within the amounts pro posed to be raised by taxation, that much pruning of expenses would be necessary.
