pntrons this week. TJie installa

the Album Courier, linn associated
himself with J. C. Crome in the
publication of Tint UitviHW.
Tlie Lewis and Clark fair is nt
tnieting adventurers, exploiters
mid "fakirs." They are coming
in droves, and not the least con-
spiciious ninoiig them is the tidver
thiiiig "fakir." He is here ready
for the unwary, and with a gift of
lejk talk Is picfteiiting all kinds of
Wilieiniw in order to gather up the
dotlais. In nearly all eases these
KohuuiiK ate full of piomise to the
victim but without any k'tieficial
lutuill whatever. In ninety-nine
Mine out of one hundred, the te
tut im of Mich advertising are wholly
and eutiiely woithleiw. To p.ition
ihme fnkits Is wor than wast
ing money, it is cnntiihiitiug to a
cUmm of K.ople who live by their
ullH, and me iu good on earth.
Wu win ti the biisiuetw men of St.
Johns to look out for these fakirs;

Xicftdvc towns me tcgiirded as
iiiioii piey for thisclass of "fuk-
im", and they generally work them

nlmuM entiivly without the many

plHcliig it in the Hsitiou to which
u m piiimlly aspire. The discus-
ready for the proposition, and, as
Tim Uhvikw aims to advocate no
measure except for the good of the
whole community, it will not fur
ther urge the matter. ,
lint there is an emergency at
hand. The city council has decid
ed to purchase fire equipment,
such as hose, hose carts and hook
and ladder truck, and these, to Ik;
effective, must Ix: housed and cared
for. The block on which the city
building now .stands has passed
into the hands of paities who in
tend building and improving the
same for business purposes, and
the city is forced to seek another
location. What will le done?
That land must Ixs secured some
where is a stern fact. The present
council will have to make the
move in this matter. To rentier
he fire apparatus of benefit, a site
must be .selected in close proximity
to thi. present business center. No
matter in what direction from the
corner of Jersey and Philadelphia
streets, it should lc close ill. It
would be wise, we think, to secure
an entire block, if tiossihlc, with
the view of providing for the re
quirements of the near future.
The cost, of course, would be ma
terially less than either of the park
sites, but public opinion, witli few
exceptions, is in favor of sufficient
ground both for present and future
demands, mid we believe the coun
cil will be fully justified in making
the purchase at once, k'toie values
luetease, as they are bound to do.
A few weeks delay will most prob
ably mean it matter of several bun-
died dollars to the city.
