He also said r0CK !,"rt earln he foot of tlie hill on Cowlitz street could t: uncii, ii wouia save much more and if sand weie used for filling Instead of rork. a saving of 25 cents per yard could bo made. If this were done tin, " u oi ma company would be less than the engineer's statement. City En v'noer VanOrshoven corroborated Mr Newell'a statement and submlt ei figures to show that th wnrV would cost far less than some of the property owners hnd been Informec. K.

Walter Itlakesley was agreeable to the paving of McCormlck street and Juid he would stand his share of the cost, but wanted the work done Im mediately.

The seniors and juniors have to gether organized a lilorary society, and will hold - lr first meeting Fri day evening in the Bchool auditorium. Tlio sophomores will form a like organization very soon. Debating will constitute the main feature ot th two societies. A committee representing senior and junior clusses has been rppointed to invcBtlgato the condi tion of John Cumin's grave. When the committee has made its report, the members of the 'two upper classes will see that the grave is properly cured for during the next two years. The privilege of caring for the gravo wll then he handed down to tho classes that have replaced these two clr.sses. Our foothr.ll team was defeated at Hlilgefleld Saturday by the Rldge fiold high school team by a score of 13 to 0, The greater number of our boys had never played a game of football, but put up a good tight n gainst a team that averaged much higher in weight. We are deeply In debted to the girls und others who accompanied the team and gave it loynl support. ' Shannon Shnfer of the Clover Hill Farm at Deer Island, was In St. Hel ens Thursday.

Bramwell, vice president of the Oregon State Chamber of Com merce, made a special trip from Pen dleton In order to address the mem bers on the assistance that Is being elven by his organization and the recesslty of all portions of the state sticking together In order to get con gressional aid. Mr. Storla's report follows: The present Chamber of Commerce wns organized on December 3, 1918. I found on my arrival here Febru ary 1st, of this year, that there ex isted a good healthy organization of fifty members and that good work had been done by them. Through the aid of the members and officers the membership was in creased to one hundred forty. In getting the organization at artel cn its work it was believed that a series of community meetings would ?"S,h i 22! ?a I accordingly the plan of having two meetings a month was adopted. At "nch of these meetings matters of business were discussed and action taken, and this was followed with in address by some well known per son on Important matters confronting t's. In addition, there was good music and occasionally refreshments These meetings were of a character adapted to the needs of the com munity, and to show their general character and educational value, I shall make mention of some of them. In Fehrunrv. Mr. John i. Etherldeb. manager of Morris Brothers ot Port land, spoke on the subject of the State Chamberpot Commerce and the development 0f a greater Oregon. Mark Woodruff, of Portland, ad dressed us on the benefits of good roads and the efforts put forth to secure travel to this western coun- rv. Mr. D. C. Howard outlined what could be done in the way of co-j operation between the farmers and the merchants. In March, Mr. R. T. Jacob gave a hort talk on the Interne! Revenue laws end Mr. David F. Morrison, editor of the Portland Telegram, In terested and enlightened us on the subject of ports and port develop--int. Mr. B. F. Irvine, editorial writer of the Oregon Journal, gave -i timely address on tho Lecgue ot tui tions. During March, the Wr.rren grange "tertalned our members x.t a splen did meeting of good fellowship In April, Prof. E. T. Reed of the1 Oregon Agricultural college, de- Uvered his address on cooperation and leadership. And during the' same month, Mr. Wm. L. Finley, state biologist, en tertained and instructed us with his lecture and wonderful pictures oi wild animal life In Oregon. At one of our June meetings. Mr Charles R. McCormlck, of San Fran cisco, president of the McCormlck In terests, In a brief and business-like statement, assured us what his com panies were doing and going to do to aid the development of this city, and. stated It's conflndence In the growth of the place. Mr. A. F. Marsh gave his Illustrated chnrt lecture on community develop ment, and lam sure that one of you who heard him will ever forget the 1 radical Illustrations and how they could be applied In St. Helens. Mr. T. E. McCroskey, the versatile secretary of the Salem Chamber of Commerce, presented various prob lems and their solutions, In com munity work, and I might say that some of his suggestions have been followed In our city to our advantage. During the summer months w took occasion to get better ac nimlnted with our neighbors and ou July 27th arranged tor a picnic at Vemonin nd Invited all . Nehalem valley people to Join us there.

It bad been the property of several Italians but was confiscated In a raid lant rvih.w .. o...-. tohh?

Mr. Olsen regretted to leave, but It was impera tive that he should do so Tho nttt.. '(Will be filled by Mr. Howard until nuvemoer 1st. neighbors from country and town. On that occasion we had lnstruciIv-1 and entertaining talks by Mr. D C Howard, and Former" Smith, th O. W. R. & N. agriculturist. I make mention of these meetings to show the general range of topics tnd nature of the meetings, and I might say that we need these In spirational and educational meetings in order that we may learn how man people are solving heir problems and thereby givo us pointers for our wel fare. Some of the earliest work done by s was In regard to legislative blllF Through the cooperation ot our re presentative, Mr. Edison I. Ballagb, the passage of the mineral bill was cecured. This allows mineral rights ;t-'f. "d win brmg in actional revenuo and also tend to put a stop "o reserving the mineral rights when the land is sold. If tho mineral rights are reserved, taxes must be paid for the privilege. An effort was made to get a separate judicial district for this county, but falling in that, we secured the defeat of a bill which would have put us in a judicial dis trict, with Washington county, a more Inaccessible county than Clat sop, with which we are now tied. Also we worked to secure the de feat ol a bill which tried to abolish the rounty board of equalization. Then we took up with our senators and representatives In Washington the matter rf securing increased ap propriations tor the agricultural de l.'r'ment, as for a time Congress t'.reatened to curtail the amount ap propriated for county agricultural agent's work, one of the most im tortant projects in the state and which means so much for the agri cultural community. You will remember the clean-up campaign early In April. TenB ot thousands of old cans, bottles and glad rags were consigned to the scrap heap. We'll have one next year and remove another layer. In March we laid the plans for numbering of the houses in St. Helens. Nearly all cities of the size, dlginlty and Importance of St. Hel ens are numbered. The city council approvea me pinn ana tne unamner, ( commerce naa a largo map pre- 'DRrea "howlng the numbering) scheme, and numbers are sale by the city recorder. To show what cooperation will do About 40 men got together one af ternoon in June, with picks, shovels end other tools they had not ex erc'sed with for years, and did honest to goodness work on a road loading to our Columbia Beach, in conso- quence ot which autos can now get to! that bnthln place.

Our paper starts next Thursday a big subscription smpaign.' One of the main objects is to give the advei Users more readers and to Improve the paper by adding new features and more correspondents. It is thi belief of the publishers that they are supplying a paper that deserves more readers than it has. They also believe that its advertisers deserve circulation than the paper ?.n? AUrn,8hmg them- In order to ls prepared to SDend money liharaiw n,uin i iic yaper In the effort. It feels that the adver tisers are spending money on the strength ot the paper having a largi circulation, and it is the purpose to Justify their Investment in the ad vertising space by maintaining that circulation at its maximum strength We feel that the paper should wield a still rreater Influence and ahould be read by a great many more people than now do so. To this end we havi again engaged the services of Mr. and Mrs. C. L. P. Perkins, who are experienced people In newspaper work, and capable and thorough. The contest will be under the supervision and personal direction of Mr. and Mrs. Perkins. They have flattering testimonials .from the publishers they have been 'associated with, and we are satisfied that they will again do good for the paper. Its readers and its advertisers. We expect to add a great many ne readers to the large list of those 'who already receive this paper regularly. For these reasons all Ishould be Interested in our big con test which is now being launched. The plan is simply to Issue votes for old or new subscribers and give a prize to every active contestant. The 12 ladles having the most nominations will be the 12 contest ants to represent the different com munities. There will be 12 beautiful prizes the first prize is naturally the best. A" beautiful diamond ring, bracelet watcb,' diamond lavallieres. two scholarships, gold bracelet, gold brooch and rings are among the prizes. It will depend upon the ef forts each contestant puts forth, how good a prize she will win. The prizes are all bought through your well known jeweler, Mr Von Gray, wh,efe they will be on display from next Tuesday on. They must be seen to be appreciated, as never be fore has such a list of prizes been given away in this short time. Each prize is guaranteed 2nd wilt stand the fullest inspection by any person Interested. The contest will be out In the open absolutely free from any misrepre sentation or fake In giving prizes, and there will be throe well-known business men to act ns the judge ot the contest. Nomination coupons for those who desire to enter the contest or for those who wish to nominate a friend will be found on page eight. Fill them out and mail them to the contest manager. The contest will only run 1 6 days. Therefore the con testants will need Ml their spare time .to do their work, so help them all you can. Don't fail to read the con- Ltest page in the next week's Issue. locate here and have the prospect of ft sash and door factory, a box fac tory and other Institutions that can make use of the lumber that now goes to waste at our lumber mills. One ot the biggest projects we have undertaken Is now under way. For some little time we have needed a deeper channel leading Into St. Helens from tho main channel of tho olumbla river. At this time the 'rger sieei vessels cannot come tn to ane on cargoes ana mis nampers the business of our port. Few prob rhVy realize that we ship annually 60.000,000 feet ot lumber from St. Helens, nnd that with improvement and additions under way this will he Increased to 90,000,000 feet each year. We have gathered data, statis tics, statements, drawings and photo graphs and forwarded it to W'ash- 'ngton with request that congress- L0.nal n bo taken. The Oregon sta,e Chamber of Commerce is also and better roads, and while we have to leave that Important project until we do get It. Paving ot streets In St. Helens has been agitated, and we shall shortly see definite results in that direction. NEW SUBSCRIBERS In closing, I want to say .'hat I have met with a tine spirit of co operation from th6 members, direc tors and officers, and I believe that we have th organization that Is go ing to accomplish much tor the bet terment ot our community life and I iuterestB, rnd furlough.
