Supplement to the St. Johns Review Friday, June 19, 1908 Lest wc forRct, wc wish to go on record regarding the question of statement No. t men elected to the legislature. There is an effort lie inn made, by the members of the otd rotten ring in the republican party, to influence the statement No. i men to repudiate their sol emu promise to the voters of the state that they would vote for the candidate for the United States sen ate who received the largest num ber of votes at the state election. The me" her of the house who docs so tepudiate his pledged word in this matter is a deliberate liar and should be so branded by every honest voter of the state if he ever comes before them again for the benefit of their franchise. There could be no greater breach of trust, no more dishonorable or dishonest act perpetrated by one ol our law makers than that; and the man who is guilty of such an net wc would not believe on oath uud wc would oi)K)se to the utmost of our ability for election to any office ever after. We do not believe that there is a man who came out on the platform of statement No. i who will stoop so low as to do this (lis honorable thing even though so licited by the dishonorable and (lis honest element of their party, and we simply make this statement to liow the position we take in the mutter mill also to show the t)()si tion tilketi by every one of either party with whom we have con versed on the question, and to give a warning to statement No. i men against committing political suicide by repudiating their pledge to the constituents. It does not matter that we voted for Mr. Cake and that wc did not wish to see Mr. Cli iniberlaln sent to the United States senate. The people of the statu have declared that he is their choice and by every sense of right and justice he should be sent there, even if by so doing the best inter csts of the state are not conserved. Only by such a course can we ever achieve the government for which Lincoln sacrificed his life. So, we shall mark these men and govern ourselves accordingly. Comrade Hiumau of the Chicago rooming house is treating the lios telry to n fine coat of paint, great!) adding to its appearance. The cir cular work is being done by Com rade Caldwell. There is nothing like keeping our property in fine repair. If one has to live even in a drygoods box, like a newspaper man, it is u iter to hav it nicely painted If someone will lend 'us ihe paint nud brush we will agree to put it on. Don't all sp-ok at once. Speaking of our humble dwelling, we do not wish to com plain. We arc more fortunately situated than the great adopted son of Athens. Diogenes, the tutor of princes. When living in Athens hisdwelliugphice was a tub belong ing to the temple of one of the gods We have something coming yet. Nice, fresh eggs from the coun try at the Home Creamery. It makes one Inugh to notice the views some people take of political issues, The late school election is a case in point. Some people told us about how mean Professor Al derson was, others how mean Mr, Williams was. Perhaps they both should be hung and the writer nloug with them. Hut that was not the question at issue as we tin derstood the matter. We wished to elect a director and vote on the grade of our schools. Personal an imositics, personal likes and dis likes should be eliminated from such contests. As regards Mr. Kobison, wc believe htm to ue one of our best citizens. There is not a man we know of that we hold in higher esteem than wc do Mr. Uohisou and wc believe he would have done what he thought to be the very best for our schools. Hut, wc have had some little experience with a school director s duties nud we learned some things we shall not soon forget. We felt the need of legal advice many times during our term of office, nud these needs came when and where wc could not avail ourselves of the services of an attorney. It will be readily seen, then, the extra value of Mr. Greene's services to the city. It was u case with us ns it was with a certain Roman senator, not that "we loved (Jacsar less, nut tltnt wc loved Rome more." Had it been our own father we should have done just as we did in this instance. We would have advocated the elec tion of Mr. Greene because of his special lituess and ability to give the liest possible service to the city. We hope this will ens; the pain of the gentleman who jacked us up for not fighting Greene. The Portland Light nnd Power Company is putting in n new sub station just across tlie bridge near Northern Hill station. It is said the purpose is to use the current generated there between the bridge and Piedmont, nud that generated nt the substation near the icehouse on the loop in St. Johns. We be lieve this is a good move nud will prevent those vexatious delays caused by the weakening of the cur rent in times of heavy troffic, and greatly improve the service. We people in St Johns are fortunate in our.trolly service anyway, and it is gratifying to see the company show n disposition to keep up its im provements. We have better tracks, belter service, more gentle manly employes to deal with out our way than obtains in any other section of the system that we have been over. 1 here are n few little plnces where the track is bum and the company is preparing to remedy one of these places by putting in a double track. Please note the nrticle on the Peninsula. This gives some of the many good features of our section and would be good material to send to your friends who may be thinking ot coming west. We have a few extra copies of this is sue at five cents per, if you wish any to send "back home. Dissolution Notice. Notice is hereby given that R. L Davidson and George V. D.
