His death was caused by a complication of troubles nd the Infirmities that come with old age. I'dtll 24 hours previous to his death, he was conscious, but realized that the end was approach ing. His death was peaceful. James Dart was born in England In 1841 and with his parents came to Canada' In 1849. After reaching manhood he moved to Seattle and In 1866 came to Ht. Helens to aid In the count ruction of the Muckle mill. Upon completion of the mill he was appointed superintendent, a position he held for many years. .Often In Public Life.

I "nymorougn their Influence to have the channel A petition to Senators Invisible Chamberlain, Charles McNary and i lH. r i . . . ..... of the Columbia river Into St. Helens dredged to a depth of 27 feet at low water, has been prepared. The petition seta forth that the In dustries located here are responsible for a great water borne traffic. Prior to the war, the average annual ship ments were 60,000,000 feet, but with the Increased capacity of the St. Helens Lumber Company, the Col umbia County mill operating day and night and the new mill of the Islam! Lumber Company almost ready for operation, the shipments for the coming year are estimated at not less than 92,000,000 feet. With the resumption of operating activities at the-Creosotlng company's plant, and bred stock, but acting on the advice of County Agent Howard, they pur chased a few good cattle. Each sea son since that time they have added to their herds and both of the stockraiaers say that good cattle1 fi'''- '.nfT"0 nav thA h.r i those who built the FISHING WITHOUT LICENSE FINED $50 George C.

Those who have expressel their sentiment to the Mist do notj object to School Directors Melllnger, Akin and La Bare having their names on the tablet, though it la the general sen timent that such Inscriptions were entirely unnecessary. They do ob ject, however, to the architect and contractors putting their advertise ment on the school and then charg ing the taxpayers for the advertise ment. The architects received S per cent on the cost of the building, they say, and the advertising slab cost 160. The architects will, therefore, receive $3.00 commission, or 6 per cent on the slab and then take up a goodly portion of tbe space in ad vertising themselves. .The contrae tors will , also receive their pay for the slab and putting it In place and then they have a big free ad. '. Of course $60.00 Is not aa much aa 560.p5, but .the taxpayers, cannot understand why It was necessary to spend the $60 to advertise the arch itects and contractors who came only for a mercenary purpose, and who are receiving a profit on their wort, yes, even to the furnishing and plac ing of the advertising Blab which bears their names. John Gumm Blab Wanted Many of the old timers and those who knew John Gumm think that a memorial tablet should be placed honoring the founder of the St. Hel ens school. They do not think that those who built the new school- nouse, those who drew the plans and received a monetary consideration, should be honored as Is John Gumm. Nor do they think that It was neces sary for the school directors to try to perpetnate their memory any more than others who worked on the Job. Judge Pullerton thinks that "John Gumm School" would be the best. ueorge ferry says that he will bead a subscription list for a new tablet and donate $1 or more. George Wll- tson cannot understand why "It Iras aonc" and many others have ex pressed like sentiment. The Idea was r.lso expressed that t.elt line railroad to connect the In dustries along the waterfront, It Is said will bring large shipments of white pine to St. Helens for ship ment, by vessel and that the com merce of the port will be further de veloped.
