Whon tho lato Theodoro Itoouo
vclt with his peculiar faculty of
coining fitting phrases described n
class of men as "undesirable cltl
Bens" ho forced thorn Into public no
tlco and mado them hunt cover from
public scorn and ridicule.
Tho kind of men ho described us
undcslrablo woro thoso who sought
to disregard tho laws of tho land and
foment trouble They were undo
Hlrnblo from tho point of vlow of
economic penco ntid prosperity.
Tills clnBH however docB not dos
crlbo all of tho undcslrablo and un
social citizens who mny ho found In
almost ovury community, in fact
thoy nro less to bo scorned than
that class of citizens who Iguoro tho
common rules of sanitation and en
danger tho lives of their follow clt
Izoiih by maintaining nuisances In al
loys anil vacant lots.
Citizens of this kind nro not confin
ed to thoso who do not know better.
Thoro nro many who nro possessor,
of great property who permit such
conditions to exist through a delib
erate intont. Thoso men concolvc
thomsolvos nbovo tho law, whose
power they aro ready to Invoke for
offenses against themselves but
which thuy Ignoro when It suits their
This Ib an unAmurlcau doctrine.
Thoro Is no man in Ontario or any
other town who is nbovo tho law.
That Is tho theory on which tho city
council is to act in Its Justifiable
campaign to clean up tho Infested
spots within tho city limits.
Tho council is wise In taking this
matter up for consideration now and
not waiting until warm weather Is
horo and flies begin to breed. It Is
nlso wiso in determining to enforco
tho law In tho only way It can bo
enforced; by prosocutlug thoso who
will not comply with its provslons.
Ab Councilman flteig woll said;
"tho city has spont hundreds of
thousands of dollars for water and
soworago systems, and citizens who
havo any rospoet for thomsolvos and
tholr nolghbors huvo connoclod with
both. It Is up to tho city to mnko
thoso who havo no respect for thorn
koIvob or tholr nolghbors comply
with tho laws."
Wo boltavo that oncompassM tho
situation. Tho pooplo of Ontario
havo discussed sanitation, for sever
al years. It has bcon n process of
education. Though thoso who havo
urged it in tho past havo not socur
od tho oiids ntmod at, real progress
has boon mado. Ontario Is a clean
or city than It used to bo. It can
bo cleaner still, and with tho united
backing of tho city council wu ho
llovo tho officers nro willing to en
forco tho law, If that bo nocossary in
oxtromo cases, Ono or two prose
cutions will solvo tho problem.
In tho moantlmo thoso who know
that thoy huvo unsanitary conditions
on property thoy own ought for tholr
own peuco of mind tako action be
fore tho city officials aro compollod
to do so.
