FRIDAY, IS'OVKMHUR 6, 1908.
AlthoitRli defeated in the presi
dential battle, William Jennings
Urynn proved himself a full blooded
American by sending the following
to his victorious opponent '."William
II. Toft. Ciucinnatti, Ohio Please
nccept my congratulations and best
wishes for the success of your ad
ministration. William Jennings
Bryan." We always did admire n
cheerful loser and it is refreshing
to note his manly course, and we
like him belter for It.
The Wild and Woolly West ns
exemplified by the condurt of the
citizens ol uregon on ciecuoi. iiny ,
was something remarkable. All
the old bullyragging of the ward
heeler was conspicuous by its ob-
seiice. livery voter went to the
polls, deposited his ballot "accord
ing to the dictates of his conscience' '
and went on his way rejoicing. No
more orderly election could Imaged
for ami wc nrc pioutl of Oregon
and her citixens, who can g.u
many pointer to the cffite ll-.st on
good citizenship and the manii' r of
pulling off nu election.
Tiler is some product tint
Pittsburg street will lc improved
before the weather makes it imjxis
Mhle. It would be a shame to p r
mil this street to go nuolhir winkr
as it did hist, pnttirlilHrly -iucv tlu
l'ctry company has offered to urri
tlu- rock free mid doitu'c fso in
cash. The p ople most directly
benefitted, the big mantU'iu tilling
concerns lying alongside the street
should have been glad to hnvc
borne the entire expense as the
benefits that will accrue to them
would more than compensate them,
but they were apparently afraid
they would do something for some
, body else for nothing. Selfishness
hinders the progress and develop
ment of our city a hundred fold
1 more than poverty.
An event that means much to
tWtlmifl nml St. Inlnm is Mm form-1
al opening of the North Bank road
today. This road taps one of the !
rir.1ii.tit nrr-frn1lltrn1 t-nirimie in tltn
world and will bring millions of
dollars worth of cereals and live
stock to our docks. Iivcrything
that can be done should be by our
people to induce the North Bank
road to put a track into our new
dock. Already exporters are mak
ing inquiries after our dock with a
view to leasing and the track should
be in by the time the dock is fin
ished. That the Hill road would
be the more desirable of the two
is conceded from the fact that it
bleeds n richer and more extensive
territory and would consequently
bring a heavier shipment to our
dock. Our facilities for handling
this export will be of the best and
if tin. fn1intii nf lumincss should
become too great for the present
dockage facilities, there ore miles
of St. Johns water front just about
as good that can be utilized for that

ager Myers nbont the race said he felt sure

Jack Scanlon of Tacoma now holds the
three mile amateur championship, says he represents the Emerald Isle with his new green
skating suit, and that he docs not mean that any of his compatriots shall blush at his per
formance, but if there is any such thing possible he will carry off the first.
Will McNiel, the other contestant, has been taken sick and cannot enter the race, which
limits the contestants to four instead of five, as at first intended.
THE BIG UNION BAND
Will furnish music for the occasion and will add much to the evening's entertainment. Manager Myers has
talked to a number of the very best people in the city and they have been very complimentary in their re
marks regarding the older and the manner in which the skating rink is being managed during the past two
weeks nnd say they have never known the rink to have been run in such an orderly manner as now and they
think that it will have the very best of results this season.
Keep your eye on the Review and note the special events from time to time. There will be a large
number of them presented. You cannot afford to miss any of them. There will be skating before and after
the races each evening. There will be skating every evening and nil day Sundays. The management has
gone to great expense to make this racing event n success and feel sure of good results. Racing begins at
9:15 sharp Thursday evening. General admission 15 cents; skates 25 cents. Remember the dates Novem
ber 12, 13 nnd 14.
There will be a grand masquerade on skates Thanksgiving which promises to be a very pleasing event.
