Ontimist. And as an offset about
300 disputes arc settled each year
and ten thousand postmasters
"called down." The first order
for bank-stamping was issued about
1882, if our memory serves us
aright, and the custom has cost us
a itreat sum of money, a great loss
of time, and has done almost no
good. It is time to stop it.

School Districts Nos. 1 and 2 is a
good one, and it is surprising that
the icop!c of St. Johns did not take
advantage of it at the election last
June. The real leasou is that the
people did not understand the
advantages to be gained by the
step. The mere fact that such
consolidation would tend towards
icduciug the taxes and nt the same
time give the patrons increased
facilities for iiistiiictiou is enough
to commend it to all. The Review
uuderhtaiids that the change can be
made without uxenseor inconven

too good and every citizen should
strive for it.

The deplorable scenes attending
the election of school clctk Monday
uvuiiing thoiouglily disgusted the
the citizens who had gatheicd to
participate in the election. It was
one of those affairs that a newspa
per would much rather ignore, be
cause such occiittcitccs do not te
licet much ci 11I it tiH)ii the city or
its inhabitants. The spectacle of a
lawyer making a disttessiug Miow of
himself by hurling insult after in
sult at a man who was not a candi
date was suiely disgusting and out
of place. The chair was not blame
less, either, lie should have at
least attempted to stem the tide of
vitiiH!iatiou and invectives that
(lowed front the attorney's vocal or
gan in a stream that was long and
filthy, even if he favored the elec
tion of the candidate whose cause
the speaker was estHHising. Dis
graceful scenes of litis nature arc
far fiout edifying, A spirited con
test is always appreciated, but a
dirty one never. The voting, how
ever, was fair and above board and
The Review does not in the least
tegtet or begrudge the election of
Mr. Tatich. His tecoul apparent
ly is clean, his eligibility alleg
ed and his ability is uumtrstioucd.
Hut yet we cannot help believe he
disproved of the manner in which
his candidacy was advanced by an
over zealous supporter. It is cer
tain that Mr. Hlack was not pre
pared for the abuse that was heap
ed upon him. lloth candidates en
tered the race to win. That was
tuetr privilege, j he tropic went
to the meeting to cast their votes
for their choice, and not to listen to
the abuse and coarse wit of compar
ative "stranger, ' who said he was
sober, and reiterated the statement,
and who said he was not luted to
make the attack, thus establishing
n precedent. It is the great Ameri
ca n privilege to tltifer with jvople.
Were it not so what a monotonous
world it would be. So let us abide
by the verdict of the people. Let
the scenes of Monday night be for
gotten and let the bitter feelings
perish and the dissentients and strife
aroused pass into oblivion.

what it wants for the asking,
Whether thete is a clause in this
franchise prohibiting the transfer
to a rival company, The Review
does not know, and it is doubtful
whether all members of the council
can answer this question correctly.
Is this franchise obtained to build
a telephone system in St. Johns or
for the ptiitmsc of disusing of it to
11 rival company? Are the interests
of the city safeguarded ns hey
should be? These questions should

Pithy Paragraphs from our Corres
p ndent at Salem.
Governor Chamberlain has won
a great victory through the decision
of Judge Wolvcrton. The govern
or held that the state was not
bound to issue deeds to those who
purchased school land certificates,
as they obtained them through
fraud. The other state officers
disagreed with the governor, so he
had to go it alone. The decision
of Judge Wolvcrton sustained the
contention of the governor, so that
115,000 acres becomes the property
of the state. At $5 per acre this
will amount to $565,000. George
is a governor worth having.
A bill is to be introduced in the
legislature prohibiting the giving of
passes to the people, but allowing
public officials to ride free. This
is not in accordance with the anti
pass law adopted by the people last
spring. The only mistake about
the bill is that it proposes to give
passes to the wrong party. A law
which proposes to give something
for nothing cannot be right.
Everybody who can strike a blow
at the attempt to give a large ap
propriation to the Jamestown exhi
bition ought to strike it.
About thirty new commissions
and eighty new offices ore to be
proposed nt this session of the legis
lature. It would not be surprising
to sec n poultry commission, a
millinery commission and a laundry
commission established. These
would not be more absurd than a

Neglected Colds Threaten Life.
(From the Chicago Tribune)
"Don't trille with n cold." is
good advice for prudent men uud
women. It may lie vital in the
ease of it child. Proer food, good
ventilation, and dry, warmclothiiiti
are the proiw safeguards against
colds. If they are maintained
through the changeable weather of
autumn, winter and spring, the
chances ot n surprise from ordinary
colds will be slight. Hut the ordi
uaty light cold will Ixxntuc severe
if neglected, and a well established
ripe cold is to the germs of diph
therta what honey is U) the bee.
The greatest menace to child life
at this season of the year is the
neglected cold." Whether it is a
child or adult, the cold slight or
severe, the very best treatment that
can be adopted is to give Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy, It is safe
and sure. The great nooularitv
and immense sale of this prepara
tion has been attained by its re
