Just be fore tho seuson ended, a big run ot salmon entered the river and many of them succeeded In eluding the purse seines and nets on the lower river. K. I. Ilnllngh states that many of his flHhermen mude cutches from r.00 pounds tn 1000 pounds and when tho seuson closed. It appcured that the run was lust getting started. Down at Astorln, the editor ot the Mist visited several canneries and they were blocked with fish. The catch there was better than in by at least 16 per cent and the salmon pack this year will be larger thun In toveral years pint. The fall flahlnc amnion opens Bop- lomber 10th, but Mr. llallngh has not boon advised by his company as to whether they will accept fish dur ing that period.

Property Ohimts JN.liiriMl with AsxeMiinent Made by Council on (Wilt nntl Camnnau fltrret Im COUNCIL TRANSACTS USUAL BUSINESS Home Lively Ifebate on Nob HI. I AssesNiiirnt, Keeulting In Draw IIUHlness of More or Leaa Importa unre Tranaacted. From what the Mist can learn It seems1 very probable that there will bo a fight by the property owners on the UHsesnment tho council has levied for the Cowlltz-Crseneu and Nob Hill street Improvement. The "property owners at the far ! end" of the Improvement claim they I have been aHseaad Just as much aa he . property owners in the "neat end" ot the Improvement, and they lo not approve of such asHivumient. Property owners oa Oak s'reet are also dlnaatlsfled as are properly owa era on Cowllts street. The former claim they should not be assessed any considerable amount for the con crete pavomont up the hill, whllb he latter say that the puvement was built for the benofit of residents on the hill. There is, also, considerable dis satisfaction at the road or street on the hill. Tho lnrge loose rocks are beginning to work to the surface, and is one resident of the locality ex pressed his sentiment "the road or street reminds me of a county road before the hard surface Is put on It. The Mist understands that a re- monstrunco will be filed with the council though It Is not thought such will bear much weight Inasmuch as Councilman Dixon has expressed him self as being unalterably opposet. ;o making any change in the assess ments and the other councllmen, ap I'aivntly, concurring with him. It has boon liuitea inai mo iinor sieil nronorty owners will resort to tho courts to see that the provisions of the charter which sayo property .In. II hn assesHed according to ncne- flts derlvod" Is carried out by Hie council In making the proper assens-moiit.

At the meeting of the city council Monday the Nob Hill improvement came In for more or lens discussion, though the time for listening to ar guments pro and con on the subject was not yet due. Among reports the marshal in formed the council that hn had con structed a fire hose house on the I.urnboe property. Councilman Wheeler reportod that a rank odor prevailed lu the air in various places In the city and ho was anxious to locate the source. One of ihe spectators suggested that it ralcht be a atlnk-b'jg. and the nooclbllitv of a clogged sewer r.s advanced. In an offort to reinody the matter of the odlferous odor the marshal waa In structed to flush out the Bowers. Councilman Laraboe suggoated that some action be taken toward having the burned railroad station removed, inasmuch aa it was an eye sore to the public and a menace to adjoining property. The suggestion was also mude that plana were under way by the railway company to build a new depot soon, hence nothing more was done concerning the re moval or the burned building. Dr. Flynn addressed the council In the way of an objection to an old ruck blocking the street in West St. Helens. Flynn proposed to romove t on order of the council. It seem thut the truck has occupied that Dart of the street for aevoral months. The council passed an order directing the recorder to notify the owner to re move It within ten durs or it would be removed at his expense. The camping ground question was brought before the council members by Dr. Flynn. It appeared that no leuse of any definite time could be secured, hence the mattor hnd been left to drag. As no agreement wa reached said question is still drag ging. The bid of the Warren Construc tion compuny to pave the intersec tions of streets leading from Colum bia Btreet to the highway was accept 3d at 21768.16. The. Warren people were also giv en the contract to pave the city's part of Strand street. Work on this street will bo done partly on the cost plus plan. In the matter of a new resolution covering the Improvement of Wyoth street, on motion ot Dixon the new resolution was rejected and the old allowed to stand. It will be remem bered that Mr. Godfrey objected to a part of some lots owned by him being included in the former resolu tion. The council had a new one drawn excluding this property and later concluded to retain the lota in the district in which improvements are proponed. The Noo Hill proposition came in for a little acrimonious debate wheu E. A Roiger appeared In fore the council In bohalf of Mlas George, who has an assessment app lmutlng 11000 for the Nob Hill work. The debalo ended where it started, how- over, as the council was raking no official action on these assessments at Monday night's meeting. VACATION TIME HAS ITS ENDING GUNSHO Hchool 0eng Next Monday In St. Helena. Vacation days aro over for thla year et least for the big auu iltw. kidlets who are garnering an educa tion. The city schools open for the 19Z0-Z1 term next Monday. Superintendent Fullerton la anxious that the openingjay brings a large attendance, so that all may be prop erly assigned and classified In their classes at the beginning of the school year. The St. Helena schools are among the most progressive in the state and our new superintendent la start ing the new year with the declaration that it Is his intention to maintain the high standard set by bis predecessor. and if possible improve the standard. To do this he asks tho co-operation of the school patrons, the students und the faculty. In this ambition the Mist believes that Mr. Fullerton will have hearty and whole-souled support of all concerned, and that when vacation, time again comes around the citizens ot St. Helens can have even a greater pride in the high plane of education upon which their schools rest. ; SOME PICKUPS ABOUT TOWN The Catholic Girl Scouts under the leadership ot Mrs. A. C. Tucker went on an outing Wednesday to the ranch of John Dowd above Yankton. They will be absent for threo days. O. Enneberg ot Misl was a visitor in this city Tuesday on business at the court house. Mr. Enneberg re ports the Mist section to be in a flourishing condition, crops being above the average.

C. R. Rotger will leave Saturday er Sunday tor California to bring home his wife, who hai been In the southern state about tour months tor the benefit of hor health. While by no means fully recovered Mrs. Rotger lias Improved to the extent ot being able to make the trip home. W. A. Hall, one of Clatskanle's prominent citizens, was in the city the first ot the week en route east to visit his old home in Now York state. It will be Mr. Hall's first visit in twenty years to the old home. where he Btill has some brothers and a sister yet living. He will be absent about four weeks. The stork- realizing that Just at the end of the fishing season, E. I.

Friends will be glad to know that mother and daughter are getting along nicely.

Fifty men were put to work, how ever, and finally got the blaze under subjeotlon. ; Tom White, who made the trip to Illinois for the sheriff after "Slim" Harris, is not wildly enthusiastic ov er tho pleasures encountered in trav eling on the trip. It was Impossible to get sleeping accommodations on the return trip and as a consequence himself and fellow traveler were compelled to get their "forty winks ov sleep" as best they could in a day coach.
