An Origiim Idea.
C. h. Johnson, even on the alert
to help St. Johns, has suggested nn
iden for the advertising of this city,
that is unique nnd might form a
most desirable scheme. Mr. John
son proposes Hint n tower or reu
sonablc height be built 011 the fair
grounds and n telescotK! installed
nnd trained on St. Johns. This
might be in charge of some one
to distribute such literature us
might be deemed necessary.
While the scheme is somewhat of n
novel one, yet it would be uu effec
tive one, if tried. The cost would
not be excessive.

filled. Five new members were
admitted, and the interest mani
fested was most encouraging.
in tins connection let it be
known, the Commercial Associa
tion is not.n political organization
in any sense of the word. In fact.

enough to suggest politics, local or
otherwise, he would be iunuedi
ntely scjuelched.' The association
is laboring for the material interests
of this city; the interests of the
people as n whole. Every citizen
who believes ill united action is in
vited to become n member, what
ever be his occupation or callinrr.

this means, we don't know, ns well

was received with favor, nnd n
committee consisting of Moiiahau,
