The Journal seems to take sport in slamming it Into the residents of Saint Johns at intervals of so short duration that it looks like one per petual jab. Our citizens are not averse to being skinned once in a while by some metropolitan paper but when it comes to rubbing salt and jeppcr into the slots where they have been skun an objection is bound to arise. Facts are always beyond dispute. They arc the real thing -and are, if they pertain to public acts or con ditions, public property. lint as the terfect shape of the brilliant rainbow can be distorted by view ing it through an imperfect glass so can the most conservative and lawful acts be burlesqued by one evilly-inclined. Under the flnriiur nnniimi "Saint Johns Chases Nimble Dollar" the Journal headlines "City Officers Strictly Kn force all Local and State Laws to Secure Funds." When It comes to the city of Portland the Journal is particularly ihigcr that all laws and ordinances shall be enforced: when il handles Saint Johns the Journal is as equally insistent that to act in a like man ner is u deep, dire, bloodthirsty wrong. The Journal slums at the uucstiou of urrcstimr and finlnir ordinance breakers: dlirtf nt the "fines" mid by Cedar Park; slurs at the fact of hucksters navlmi a license: and declares that City Recorder Hanks is now subbing for Marshal Organ wiiile mat omctai "raises prize strawlcrries." To read much of tin K.nlut Inhtu mutter im tMihllshcd in Portland p.icrs is but to smile at the absurdities of the correspon dent who, either willfully or unconsciously, fearfully distorts facts for the purose of creating damaging fiction. While Saint Johns is bound for a while, us have lecn all newly constructed cities, to have some absurd rulings and to have some conditions not at all favorable for progress, it is not requisite that matters be criticized in n caustic manner at the start. Some little time must nerforcc be allowed for the righting of wrongs: and incon gruities will, as time passes on, be regulated. The journal should temiwr its talk to the tone of the town: help build rather than raze: thrown rose now and then instead of a decayed vegetable. Ami Saint Johns ieople will like that paper the better tor it. Tried to Oct Lost. Saturday night lust Miss Jessie Hanks, who works in Portland, came out on a late car alout elev en o'clock. The conductor was a new man and called "Point View" as the car neared Smith's crossing whereat Miss Hanks left the car. She saw her error in a moment but the car had left her. The only remedy was to wait for the next car or walk home: and the misguided passenger chose the latter. Several of those who came into Saint Tohns on that car informed relatives of where Miss Hanks had been left and they immediately went to meet her, as the night was very dark. During her walk she heard several groups of men near the road ana wlien one 01 mose who went to meet her blew Jus police whistle there were ejaculations and some lively getting away. Lodge Elects Officers. Laurel Lodge No. 186, 1. O. O. if., held Its election of officers on Monday evening with the follow ing result: N. G. Paschal Mill. V. G. George M. Hall. Secretary K. F.

The uewly-elected officers will not be installed till some date in July. For Mutual Qood. Tub RKViaw is doiug all it can to advertise Saint Johns in an hon est manner.

Enjoyed a Picnic. 5vvfii little i' iris and two little boys enjoyed n picnic down by the Columbia slough on Saturday.

Titus and Wheel erall of the Point View district- went fishing last Saturday "just like a lot o' kids." They had a good time and told no fish stories upon their return. It is a fact, however, that sdme of the fish caught were lauded by the uid of pitchforks because they were too unwieldy to pull in with hook and line. At least a dozen of the catch weighed about five pounds each. Doing Sonic Hustling. The W. H. King Land Company is certainly trying to secure new ilc.it here, and helping push along.

' We do not lielieve that this locality I will lie "over-run" with the critters J but we do assert that evidence J now points to the fact that the bus , iuess will be overdone In Portland j and some of the mavericks will hie I over to this point. ' Some of this class have already I been seen and heard here although ! no deputations have yet been reported to the authorities One class of these fellows sends out ns scouts .someone who is either an agent for some small cheap article or one who may be taking orders for some household necessity. If lie can gel into u home and it "looks good to hint" hesotejM)rts and that home will be marked as easy prey. Sunday last there were a couple suspieIous-upieuring men closely studying the exterior of several houses and noting the adjoining grounds. It is possible, of course, that these men were upon 11 legiti mate investigating tour yet they seemed 11 bit too impiisltive. They spoke to no one and avoided con versation and finally disappeared us dtiietlv us they hud it few hours before made their appearance. It will be just as well to run 110 risks by keeping any large sums of cash about the homes or in insecure safes. The class of men who will annoy is not 11 class who will go beyond grabbing whatever may lie loose ulnnit the premises. They would commit 110 serious crime. The ojieuing of 11 bunk here places a sine dcository tor cash within reach of ull: heretofore other means have been taken to protect large sums of money, nud, 110 doubt, this has Ihx'ii well known by the "fra ternity." It will remove the source of temp tation if our citireiiti rely Ickh upon their own ability to protect cash, and retain only small sums about them. And it will aid all if every case of attempt to force an entrance and every sign of any suspicious upicuriug individuals Ih retMirted to the police department. It is simply imH)ssible for a limited police force to cover a town so widely spread ns is this one but if all due uid le given the authorities no doubt iKisslble loss wilt be uvcitcd. Dentist.
