Telia Council ao. In a short but couched In nautical terms (milder form) J. H. Wellington offered his objections to that portion ot the Casenau street improvement on Nob hill that abutts his property. It seems that in order to more econom ically improve along that portion Just south of the McCormlck resi dence, where, according to Welling ton, there is a small sized lake, the engineer found it necessary to swing the grade from the center of the street to the side away from tho Wellington property. In so doing It seems that no portion of the three lots owned by Mr. Wellington re ceive any benefit from the improve ment, and still he is forced to bear hla pro rata of the expense. And to add further to his expense he is forced to maintain an expensive piece of sidewalk across the "lake " Moreover, he stated that within tho last week he had been notified to make extensive repairs on this side walk, and he thought it was hlg;i time to o:fer objections. This ha did and in no uncertain manner as is attested by the fact that the mayor end council, as a final decision, after much discussion, docided to widen the grade toward the center of the street to such an extent the u nn.,i.i allow for a sidewalk and then Mr. Wellington might dispense with his expense and worry from that source. This seemed thoroughly satisfactory to all concerned , and at Mr. Welling ton's suggestion it was decided that the rubbish gathered during the com ing annual "clean-up" day would be dumped into the "lake" and thus lessen the exnensn nf a .n. hi. fill. Ul Henry Morgus was also on hand to offer objections to part of the expense of improving that portion of Wintr of Tualatin street Th. pointed out to Mr. Morgus that a member of tho Morgus family had signed the petition and that now af ter the contract had been let and work started was a rather belated m.eu ? erter an objection. All ot . which lead to a heated argument be- ImS ,ma7,or. and M.r- Morgus v.. Ulu 'Dlo sucn a-word-tarraga rhat tile visitors at the meeU tag-were' unable' to follow the dis cussion. The final outcome of the argument wns that all of the coun cilmen who could get away to mak a tour of inspection on Tuesday af ternoon went over the ground and it is probable that snm ri.rt.n. elusion will be reached at next Mon day's meeting. mis wrangling and compromis ing npparentlf got on Councilman Dixon s nerves, for after the atmos phere in tho council chamber had cleared a bit he came forward with the statement th in the future ha believed that tl dtv t,u ahead will the improvements L Petitioned .'or. in a legal manner and f after they were started or finished ...wQ lay oujecttons raised, they should let the objectors "talk to the wind." It r. Dixon that m ttere in St. Hele. were no better or no worse than In any town where extensive improve- m Onto nAvA -1 r i7.Vr. "t ""uer way but he still held to the belief that there was an tUl"a"ynled amount of klckinB hi Many Minor Matters. Many minor matters were brought up. A few ot these wera D.HI.J others were left in abeyance. The lights on the highway boulevard was again broached and waa the subject Qnn,a .1-. """ss'on pro and con. borne time ago a communication was received from the highway commis sion ordering the poles along tha highway right of way taken down and at that time tha mayor was firm Tin 8CnV'Ct,l0n.to let them 8tanl. Time had not sved to change his decision and he still states that he 'nrfused jo be a lackey for the Ben son crowd." and that "no fear, they will not cut the poles down " .hC0MnCil Tn Wheeler brought up the sidewalk question and stated that some drastic action should be taken o compel property ownera to repair the walks and the mayor and couti c lmen concurred in bis decision, but 1m at a 2SS 88 t0 how to proceed until au eld ordinance 'was dug up and it wa, found that the marshal was required to carry notification cards to be handed to any propert? owner whose walk waa found to Mnn h COn.d.,tlon w,th tne informa tion that if the sidewalk was not immediately repaired the city would take it upon itself to do the neces sary work and levy the cost against he property. During this discission it developed, that the St. Helens post office did business enough to war rant mail delivery but that It could never be secured until the walks were in first class condition. An- ordinance repealing Ordinance No. 234 was read for the third time and passed and Bigned by the mayor and Ordinance No. 247. selling and convoying a portion of the Strand to the county, was introduced, read the first, second and third times and passed with the -emergency clause. Other business of minor import ance was disposed of, and at 10:S0 the council adjourned. Ketel, Blanche ePrry, Francis Whit ney. George Van Natta, Grace Cham oef8,.
