8. C. Morton. Mr. Bede Is one of
the best known newspapermen in
Oregon. He is secretary of the Ore

been president of the State Editor

son of Adam bede, for many yearb
congressman from Minnesota, who
was known throughout the United

The younger Bede inherited much of
his father's wit and his writings and
speeches demonstrates this fact.
Mr. Bede motored up from Cot

of Councilman Charles Wheeler, does
not agree with the councilman as to

not ln favor of paying taxes to main

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
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

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

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.
