"Tho St. Johns Hcviuw graciously
alludes to Portland as "our neighbor
on tho south." Yes, and we're not
going to be annexed to St. Johns,

were shivering in atmospheres below

Fred Kocncr is a rustlor, und of

contracts for several buildings on
Jersey street, but owing to tho un
certainty of tho grades, and realiz

The diffcrenco in the bids for build
ing tho tcm)ornry school addition is
most marked, and it makes n man
think if lie contemplates building. Tho
highest bid was $1143, while tho low
est wns only $51:1.50, n difference of
.$029.50. The difference between tho
lowest bid nnd the next lowest is
$154.50. Certainly the highest bid
der must linvo expected to make n
very big thing, or the lowest nrc figur
ing on n pretty close margin. Tho
balance of the bids ranged from $175
to $500 above tho lowest. There were
fifteen tenders in nil.
Considerable agitation lias been
goining on recently in regard to Sun
day closing of business places. City
Marshal Organ was instructed ns to
the law regulatiii,' tho matter, by tho
city attorney, nnd thnt olllccr circu
lated an agreement which wns signed
by nearly every business man in town,
stipulating that they would voluntar
ily close up. This plan was a wlso
one, nnd relieves the marshal of tho
necessity of invoking the strong arm
of thu law, ns is clearly in his lino of
duty. The agreement Is ns follows:
