W. Clark has a force of men at work on the Railroad ave nue road and good progress Is belnrf made In the construction of tbat needed thoroughfare. All of the clearing has been completed and the grading Is now In progress. The bad weather the first of the week retard ed the work to some extent, but Road master Abry states tbat he Is well satisfied with what has boon accom plhihed. The road begins at the crossing of the logging railroad on tho Warren-St. Helena road and ex tends U the creosoting works and the Columbia County Lumber Company's plant. The road Is to be H feet wide, and will be rocked. The esti mated cost of the project Is $1,460. Many families live In the settlement established near the Industrial plants above mentioned, and the opening of a road will be of great convcnlonce to them. LOCAL ATTORNEY SELLS BUSINESS M. K.

Hen son, recently selected as chairman of tho state highway commission, has sent to the Mist the following com munication setting forth the advant ages which Columbia county will de rive when tho band issue is passed. Mr. Hen con Is a former resident of Columbia county, knows the county from one ond to the other, and knows whereof he upeaks: Edl'.or of tho St. Helens Mist. Tho following are some of the rea sons why Columbia county should vote for the $6,000,000 bond issue: In the first plr.ee this Is not to be a tax on property. Although the whole state of Oregon Is to be back of these bonds, the way the law lu drawn the automobile license is to go into a fund to pay the Interest and to retire the principal on these bonds. Seven million, nine hundred thousand dollars of bonds ($6,000, 000 of bonds to be voted on plus $1,900,000 passed by the legislature to be used to meet the federal fund, totaling $7,900,000) at 4 per cent Interest will he $310,000 per year with lutereat. The first five years there Is nothing but interest to be paid. The sixth year after tho bonds ?.re Issued one-twentieth of the prin cipal Is to be retired, therefore there will be nothing to pay the first five years except Interest. Another point I wish to emphasize Is that these bonds will not be Is sued in one bunch, as the law pro vides that not more than one million dollars shall be Issued in 1917 and $2,000,000 In 1918. It is unlikely that the entire $7,900,000 will all be Issued within five years. Now then, the automobile fund in 1916 produced $120,000, the new law for 1918 doubles this, making $240,000. Tha records In the secretary of state's office show that automobiles have lieen Increasing In number 20 per cent each year. Take $240,000 for 1916, 20 per cent Increase would make $280,000 for $1917 and $345, 000 for 1918, and thla surely would be doubled In another five years. The records in other states show that where they have built good roads the lncrcaso in numbers of automo biles h:i8 been much greater than 20 per cent. California at present has over 240,000 automobiles, the rev enue from which la nearly $2,500,- 000 per year which goes Into the state road fund. The reason I have gone into detail in this is to show that we have a safe margin when we say the automobile license will take care of the principal and Interest of these bonds and that they will not be a property tax. The next point I want to empha size Is that Columbia county has only 188 automobiles out of 34,000 in the entire Btato. Columbia county at present has spent nearly $500,000 on tho Columbia River Highway, and while good results have beeu ob tained for this expenditure the road Is not of much value in Its present condition. It Is like building a fine house and leaving off the rooT. It will bo a long time before Columbia county could ever raise money enough to pave the 56 miles of Col umbia River Highway In Columbia county. The only way It can be paved la with state aid, and thU would be possible if the $6,000,000 bond Ibsus carries at the special elec tion, June 4. Multnomah county wlli pay about 40 per cent of the $6,000,000 bond Issue, as about 40 per cent of the automobile license fees come from Multnomah county, therefore this will be an opportunity for Multnomah county to help some of the other counties In the state which are not very fixed financially. Thla looks like a proposition where Columbia county has everything to gain and nothing to lose. At present and for the past sev eral years Columbia county has been sponding qutto a lot of Its road funds each year putting a wearing surface on this highway. After it is paved the maintenance will be very small, if any, and this will permit the using of the county road funds on tho feedor ronds, theroforo it Is to the benefit of the farmer who does not live directly on the highway to vote for those bonds now, because It will give him a better chance to got some of the county funds spent on his aide road after the highway Is off the maintenance list. Colum bia county has a great future before It. It is a natural dairy country, but the only way the dairy business will prosper in any community Is to have roads so good that automobile trucks can oporate cheaper ovor same so the milk can be hauled at a very low price. To Illustrate this point, a good many years ago a farmer, who lives about fifteen miles from Seattle, told me that he formerly had to haul his .milk three miles in a wagon to tho railroad, ship It on the rnilroad to Seattle and give one cent per gallon freight and pay an addi tional cartage in Seattle. Now, with tho road paved, he sets his milk cans out at the front gate, the auto trucks pick up the milk and deliver It to the creamery or condensed milk fac- CITY OF PORTLAND NOW AT HONOLULU On Return Voyage Vessel Readies Hawaiian Port. Making her last call on the way from Australia, the motor vessel City of Tortland reached Honolulu last Sunday 65 days out from Newcastle. The time occupied to make the trip indicates that the vesBel used her canvas mostly instead of the auxil iary engines. On discharging her coal cargo at Honolulu it Is expected that the vessel will come direct to St. Helens to take on another cargo for delivery at some port In the Antipodes. Should she come direct to St. Helens her time of arrival should be about April 4. By the time the City of Portland is loaded and again ready for sea, It is ex pected that the S. I. Allard, her sis ter vesael, now in San Francisco having her machinery Installed, will also be ready to take on cargo, which win be supplied by the mills at St. Helens. HIGH SCHOOL NOTES The faculty has once mora reverted to the system of taking five off tho deportment every time some poor unfortunate whispers if they see him. As a result the assembly hall Is much more quiet than formerly. and the possibility of being expelled on account of deportment has become a frequent subject of conversation among the students. Monday morning Mr. Knight "had it out" with the student body, when he spent the first twenty minutes in designating on what points bis ideas and those of the student body dif fered. His oration was much en- Joyed by all, but we wonder if it was not the inspiration of the poem "A Proposed Epitaph which appeared in the high school paper. Last week the members of the English 3 class breathed a sigh ot relief when they realized that they had finished "As You Like It," but their Joy was short lived, for on Mon day Miss Duns appeared with enough copies of "Macbeth" to keep them busy for the next three weeks. The English 1 class has a very novel feature- in the form of a pro gram every Thursday. They soem to llko the new plan. So strenuous is the girls' basket ball practice that Gladys Hobb3 strained her hip Tuesday night. Others reported minor bruises. After some controversy it was de cided that wo Bhould again try sing ing In assembly. This form of diver sion has never been extremely popu lar, and is not hailed with much joy even now. Those who are making their music credits uudor the instruction of Dr. Enna took part in a recital Tuesday evening at the Guild Hall. It was the first recital of the school year, and was well attended. HARRY LANE United States Senator from Oregon Mr. Lane was one of the twolve sen ators who, by filibustering, prevented the Benate from giving President Wil son authority to trm merchant ves sels of the United States. The people ot Oregon strongly censure Lane for his action and are demanding that he rcBlgn. Senator Lane's term of office expiros In 1919. tory for an entire charge of three fourths of a cent per gallon. Another point In the milk business is to get your milk hauled when you want it. The manager of the Ore gon hotel told me several years ago he bought his milk from a placo near Wnrron and Scappoose. The milk was hauled to the steamboat, brought to Portland on the boat and landed here about 10 o'clock in the morning, then carried up to the ho tel, arriving there at about noon. During the summer months this milk arrived soured very often. Later, when the road was in good condition, the auto truck delivered this milk from the same place direct to tho hotel in fine order at about 8 o'clock in the morning. A favorable vote on the bond Issue means much to Columbia county. ST. HELENS PEOPLE EXPRESS OPINIONS Majority Condemn Senator Lane for Filibustering. People of St. Helens, generally speaking, are very bitter towards Senator Harry Lane and the other eleven United St. -ilea by their filibustering, tied the hands of the president in his policy of arm ing the merchant vessels of the United States. Manv nt Ihnu i n (or. viewed claim that these senators should have stood squarely behind the president in the crisis which now faces the nation. A Mist representa tive interviewed manv nf th renre. sentative citizens of St. Helens, both democrats and republicans, with the idea or ascertaining the general opin ion as to tho action of the filibuster- era. James Dart: I have been a life long democrat, but never again will I vote for Harry Lane. He should have supported the president. L. R. Rutherford: The action of Senator Lane and the other eleven senators who conducted the filibuster was cowardly and traitorous. It is extremely humiliating to have Oregon represented by such a man, and if it la possible he should be recalled. N. O. Larabee: Lane should be recalled. I have not sufficient vo cabulary to express my opinion of Lane and the eleven other filibuster ed. Dr. Edwin Ross: We should not pass judgment too hastily, but should remember that in addition to Lane there were some mighty good men in the dozen senators who filibus tered. There must have been some reason for it. Withhold judgment until more facts are brought out. J. H. Thatcher: Most emphatic ally, I do not approve of the action of Senator Lane nor of the other senators who joined him in this per fidy. H. E. Abry: By all means the president should have been upheld when the nation faces so grave a crisis. H. E. Cornthwaite: Lane should by all means be recalled. At the present situation, the officials of the United States should have put on a bold front. I rogard the action of the Oregon senator as a disgrace to the state he is supposed to represent A. S. Harrison: Lane should be recalled. Moreover, I will contribute to a fund for that uprpose. Jim McDonald: Lane should be recalled, and if you will give "Jim my" a chance to vote, I'll show you how quick I will vote to bring him back from Washington. M. F. Hazen: Lane was probably right. I don't believe in giving the president all the power; congress should have some. M. E. Miller: I think that Lane was entirely wrong. The Germans will now think that this is a divided country and that only a portion of our people will support the president. Dr. L. G. Ross: I don't wish to criticise Lane or the other eleven senators. We must admit there are good, strong men among them and there must have been some good rea sons for their actions. . A. F. Barnett: Recall Lane and while the recall is ready, also invite h to 'democratic colleague to. come back home. Neither of the senators do Oregon honor. U. W. Clark: Lane and the eleven senators who joined him, to my mind, did right. However, I haven't read much about it. Mrs. I. E. Dodd: I haven't read the papers and the only thing I know about the matter is what I hear dis cussed in tho post office, consequently I prefer not to give my opinion, since, as I state, I am not well informed on tho matter. H. F. McCormick: There were some very good and able senators who conducted the filibuster and there must be some reason for their action, so, awaiting further develop ments, I do not care to express an opinion as to their actions. Judge R. S. Hattan: I heartily ap prove of Lane's action. It was a case of being conservative or plung ing the country into war, for when we arm the merchantmen we have Invited war. Wilson is a plunger and plays to the popular clamor, or he comes and goes with the ebb and flow of tho tide of the country's thought. He is a keen politician. I think Senator Lane acted wisely at this especial stage ot the game. C. C. Cassatt: Whlla not exactly approving the policy ot Senator Lane, I must say that he and the cloven other senators have done the country much good if the rule of filibustering can be broken up. W. B. Dtllard: I do not approve of tho r-clion of Senator Lane. It will servo to make the Germans all the more audacious ond have a tendency to creato the opinion that the United States ItBelf Is divided. I regret that Oregon's senator has been a party to Giich r-.ctlons -ns has occurred. ; E. . Quick: Naturally one would expect u democratic sonator. to back ; up the policies of a democratic presl , dent, and if Senator Lane didn't wish . to back the president from this stand- point ho should have done so because of being an American. I T. S. White: No Lane for me. The GLEE CLUB CONCERT NEXT FRIDAY EVENING HIrIi 8hool Hoys to Present Big Musical Hit.

At ' tho Multnomah camp work will ba resumed Monday. Kelsoninn. president is acting for the-Interest of the entire country and should have been upheld. Geo. H. Shinn: The senate should have stood by the president to a man. Then peace would have been assured. President Wilson can be trusted, and he will preserve peace, if he can do so with honor. While I think that Senr.tor Lane made a mistake In op posing tho president ono that has brought us nearer to wnr vol T An not think that abuse of the senator neips tno matter. Ho was probably misled by those fow but noisy propa gandists in Orftpnn vihn nro.unpklnv w rJ , -- v. - v.n.un for one side in this war, and mistook their noiso for the feeling of the peo plo of the state. To a certain extent, wo who favor the president are to blame, in that wo did not organize. pass resolutions and wire and write our congressmen to stand by the president. It la time for every true American to align himself with tho president and stand up to bo counted. For business, social, politicr.I and other reasons f hnvo hesitated to say anything, but the time has come for every man to express his opinion so that there can be no mistake in even the minds of a congressman as to where the people of this country stand. W. A. Harris: I believe the fili bustering senators made a great mls tnke in not upholding the president. The nation's honor and dignity were nt stake. Mrs. Mildred Watts: When I first read tho account of tho senators' ac tion I felt bitter towards them, es pecially our senator, but since I have read his explanation I am inclined to withhold ceimure awaiting further de velopments. John Farr: I do not approve of the action of Lane and the other fili bustering senators. Congress, as well as the entire nation, should support tho president. . Mrs. Geo. Shinn: What is the use of interviewing all these republicans as to Lnne. Neither you or (names Of fortv renuhllejuia niontmnoH 1 vniml lor ur.ne ana woman t support him anyhow, no matter what he did. W. W. Blakesley: Wilson was elected because It was said he kept us out of war, so what's the use of jumping on Lane and the other fili busters because they kept Wilson from going to war. The lnngunge of some of the others Interviewed, while no doubt express ing their views exactly and correctly, would not look very well In print, and postal authorities would not al low the Mist to go through the mails should such expression be printed. A. E. arvey:..-I absolutely con demn the action of Lnne and his fili bustering crow. Judson Weed: The filibustering senators were unpatriotic, to say the least. No such spirit was manifested In 1860. The country's honor and Integrity wns at stake and the senate should have upheld the president.
