Mr. Bede Is one of the best known newspapermen in Oregon. He is secretary of the Ore gon Newspaper Conference and has been president of the State Editor ial association and the Willamette Valley Editorial association. He is a son of Adam bede, for many yearb congressman from Minnesota, who was known throughout the United States as the "Wit of the House" The younger Bede inherited much of his father's wit and his writings and speeches demonstrates this fact. Mr. Bede motored up from Cot tage Grove and says the worst road he traveled ln the 190 mile trip was the road between Scappoose and St Helens. SHINN AND WHEELEP CANNOT AGREE George Shlnn, while a good friend of Councilman Charles Wheeler, does not agree with the councilman as to hla project of making the city dock a dancing pavilion. Mr. Shlnn says be is rood church member and does not believe In dancing, hence, he is not ln favor of paying taxes to main tain a dancing pavilion. He suggests that the Citv dnrlr ha murio Inln ipublic meeting place r.nd that the uoca De aeaiccied to the public by having a strawberry festival. Good strawberries and crenm, Mr. Shlnn s.-.ys, could be oijoyed by every one and would hurt no.one, but he is op posed to dancing. Other suggestions have been made aS tO the USA Of tllA rinflr nnrl Ilia most popular one seems to be that ine cuy council nx up the approach to the dock and nse real common horse sense In trying to make the dock useful. GREATER MAXWELL WILL BE HERE SOON Dr. J. H. Flynn, county agent for me Mnxweu automobile, telephones the Mist from Portland that the ureater Maxwell will be out about July 1st, and he expects to have a carload of these wonderful machines during July. The doctor says the Greater Maxwell Is the most won derful car in America under $1500 lu price. In the next issue of the Mist, the doctor will have e.n announcement as to this car and vill furnish prospec tive auto buyers with complete speci fications of the car which the Max well people claim Is their notable achievement ln auto building. COUNTY DEPUTIES GET SALARY RAISE Three of the county deputies haa their salaries raised by the county court at Its last session. Deputy La Bare ln the sheriff's office Is raised from $1000 per year to $1200. Deputy Paulsen in the clerk's office Is raised from $900 to $1100 and Deputy Godfrey in tho assessor's of fice is raised from $800 to $1000. In all, the salary raise amounts to $600 per year increase in the county pay-roll. COUNCIL GIVES AWAY VALUABLE PROPERTY GOES TO THE COUNTY "Not in Vain" my'. tfVi' Eff $ f. f& I Ait Adjoining the Court House Will be Deeded to County The most Important matter that the council acted upon at their regu lar meeting Monday night, was to givo away a valuible piece of city property. Ttey didn't exactly give it way, but they paved the way so it could be given. That portion of the Strand adjoining the courthouse and . ln front ot the residence of A. S. Horrlson Is fhe property which the county wants and whie.h thA iltv council is anxious to give. County Judge Martin White presented the matter to the council and before any one could say atop or start, or say anything else, the resolution , had been passed with only one dissentine vote. Councilman Dixon voted NO because he thought the council should have more time to consider 'the matter, but bis colleague, were ln a hurry, and they slipped the resolution through. The skids were well greased and the resolution, which had previously been prepared, went through faster than lightning. When the council leased a portion of the Strand to the Creamery asso ciation, it took about two month, to get the resolution through, prepare and pass the ordinance, etc., but the action ot the council Monday night Is in marked contrast with action, of former councils. City property, its value, the necessity ot giving It away, the advisability of the city owning any water, front, was not considered by the council. It wa. a Bing, Bang, Hurrah matter and haa to be gotten through quickly, and it went through. The property which the council proposes to give away, Is considered quite valuable. To be definite ln describing It, the Mist quotes from the deed which the city proposes to give to the county: "All of that por tion of the Strand, in the City of Bt. Helens, Oregon, lying between the easterly extension of the northerly and southerly boundary line, of Lot 14 in Block 11, in said City, produced to the Columbia river, excepting therefrom, bowever, a strip of land thirty feet in width, in the form of a rectangle, off the entiro westerly end." The council did not receive a satis factory bid for the improvement of Winter street, so held this matter up The estimate of the city engineer for the improvement of Cowlitx, Casneau and Tualatin streets was submitted and there was quite an argument over it. No action wa. taken. It was decided tn aV ih board to fix up the floor of the city uuu, wiuun nas oeen used as a school room, so that dpneino- uiij x O ..v.u.1 w Ml- dulged in. The Question crackers and fireworks for th Fourth of July was fnlran nh Kf ma action taken. ' Several others mutton ti. up and discussed, but when the coun cil adjourned- .nothing definite had been accomplished except to give away some city property. VULCANIZING SHOP IS NOW. READY The Indenend ant intn r.mMAnM have further enlarged and Improved mmr Kurr.ge Dusiress by Installing a complete and up-to-date vulcenix Ing and tire repair shop. The vacant room between Constantin's store ano tne garage entrance was secured for the "tlreshop," and boinc; located on eha street, will make It quite con venient for automobllists. In ad dition to doing vulcanirins nnd re pairing, the shop is also equipped to do re-treading. Managor Copeland srys he Is now ready to promptly core for any and all tire trouble, and guarantees that his shop will turn cut work equal to that of any other shop. Edith Cavell left England for Belgium as one ot the many thou sand nurses called to war service. Her body was returned home the other day. burled .with honors such as no other woman than Queen Victoria ' has ever been given. The martyred nurse made the supreme sacrifice before a German tiring squad. Here is the crowd outside Westminster Abbey aa the body arrived. HAM KAUTZMAN GOES TO JAIL On account of his failure to pay the $500 fine imposed by the circuit icourt, Ham Kautzman, editor and publisher of the Columbia Herald, iwas taken to Portland by Sheriff Stanwood Saturday last and placed in thfr Multnomah county Jail. Kauti mnn was convicted of publishing libeluous articles and obscene matter in his paper and was sentenced to six months in Jail and a fine of $500. The case was appealed, but for some reason, the appeal was dropped, therefore, the editor was arrested and has begun to serve time in Jail. K, OF P.
