FLAGS AT HALF MAST
WHO IS DEAD?
Hhm the Town Died, or Who Ih Dead?
Invest 'gallon Falls to Clear Mutter
Either St. Helens is dead or some
one in St. Helens is dead. The Mist
Jins made au Investigation. It has
naked numerous citizens for the
news, but has been unable to find
out anything except that some of the
flags still wave at half mast. Who
ever put the flags at that position
and then left them there, know the
socret, but, as stated, the Mist can
not find out the real facts. .
At the city hall a boautlful Ameri
can flag floated on Memorial Day
pna it was at hair mast. Naturally
one wouia conclude tlint It was In
honor of this sacred day, but such
conclusion must be erroneous, for the
flag was nt half ninst until Monday,
Juno 2. There is nothing in the
minutes of the council meeting which
tells of the passing of the mayor, any
of the councilmen or the city marshal
nnd the recorder Is yet on the job, so
the Mist cannot say who was mourn
ed. It would suggest Hint any one
wishing to know, would Interrogate
nny or all ot these officials, tor the
Mist has been unable to secure such
information.
It is also evident that the Masonic
lodge is paying due respect nnd
mourning for some deceased brother.
A tattered and battered ensign Is at
half mast over the Masonle building.
Upon closo inspection it can be seeu
thct it Is the remnants of a United
States flag, but it Is in threads and
is almost colorless. Nevertheless,
this scarred veteran of many battles
with the elements, proudly floats
over the Masonic home and there
must be some reason for it. Our
readers will have to draw tholr own
conclusions, for the Mist is unable to
ferret out the mystery.

ments here. He spoke of the Island
Lumber Company's mill beine built
on Sauvies Island and stated that this
enterprise would be ot great benefit
to the city, as a number of men would
De employed and the output of the
mill would require the loading of
more steamers. It was the company's
Intention, he said, to build a loading
dock almost one-half mile in len-th
on the slough side of the island. Ties
from Lewis river and other points
would be brought here for shipment
and a large business would come to
St. Helens. He spoke of other mat
ters In which St. Helens wna vltniw
lnterested and promises his as
sistance In all matters which were
for community benefit.
Community Spirit Urged

ed how great thing could be accom
plished by co-operation and t&klnr
pride in the community. Hla lnetnr-
was broad in scope and met with the
approval or his hearers tnd It was the
unanimous opinion that many of the

Committees Report
Charles Wheeler, chairman of tha
committee appointed to investigate
the feasibility and to promote a plan
for the development of Columbia
Beach, said fhtt Mr. J. K. Gamble
had given the Chamber of Cnmm
a lease on the beach property. Mr.
neeier suggested that a day be ap-
iiuuiiea ior "ueacn uay" and that all
interested in buildine n. mart tn th-
beach and to fix ud tha heieh with
needed conveniences, be called on to
assist in the work. A number of peo
plo volunteered for the work and the
nencn Day will soon be declared.

progress that the Fourth of Jnlv

said, nnd there v;?s no doubt of the
success of the celebr?tlon.
Mr. Gill, of the Wittenbere-KIna-
company, in response to an Invitation
to address the chamber, said that
during the past week he had made a
tour of the county In comoany with
County Fruit Inspector A. L. Morris,
and had contracted for tons of ber
ries and vegetables for his concern.
At the present time he did not think
there was much chance for the estab
lishment of a cannery at Warren, but
with the agricultural develonment
of the county such a plant would be
necessary. He said his company was
rer-dy.to take $500,000 of rroduen
from the farmers of Columbia county.
Other Business
Mr. A. B. Lako renorted that hn
had made arrangements for the con
struction of suitable bonches to be
