FRIDAY, MARCH s5, 1901.
I herewith ntinouiicc myself as
nil Independent candidate for the
office of Councihnnii of the Second
Wnrd of the city of St. Johns nt
the municipal election to be licit
April 4U1. I'. Hill.
Work for a Grantor St. Johns.
An English poem refers to a Indy
ns "TJic woman with 11 serpent's
tongue." Deadly, perhaps, such a
tKTSonnce would foe, but linvc you
ever considered a worse aspect?
Suppose the serpents possessed
women's toniriies. My, how the
woods would ring I
Cheer up mid smile, the world is
young, and knows hut few that sor
row; to-day n souk upon the ton
riio brings happiness to-morrow.
Don't pine or heave n wistful sigh,
or wish for things, the white; but
strive for honors justly yours, and
smile, you lobster; singe I
ways to tret
to steal or to inherit-
There nre only
ntitl thc.c present about equal
chances of failure In the end. When
wc steal, the law takes away our
illy-gotten gain; when wc inherit,
the law, through its emissaries,
again comes forward anil does the
same thing. So, if wc enn't cam a
fortune in the good, old-fashioned
way of working hard for It, then,
for goodness sake, let us stay poor.
Wc have no sympathy for the
sympathy ntrikc, because the prin
ciple of it is wrong nutl causes suf
fering nnd loss to innocent people.
Why should nu employer who
treats his employes humanely nutl
pays them just wages, be compelled
to shut down his works in order
that his employes may help to
wreak vengeance or bring to time
nu unjust employer? It's not right.
The sympathy striker shows
neither justice nor good common
Perrine Scents a Joker
Ed. Review: I rise to a point of
information, I noticed in the last
issue of the Review, an article
"Concerning the Charter Amend
ments," by II. K. Collier, City At
torney. He says:
The proposed amendment of
Section 71 gives the Mayor and
City Council power nnd authority
to lease public wharves nnd docks
belonging to the city for a period
uot to exceed twenty Gve year,
whereas under our present CliarUi
like property can only be leased for
a term not to exceed five year..
Said section also makes more tk fi
nite and certain the procedure as to
giving notice and the manner of
making leases nnd sncs of real
property belonging to the city.
Mr. Editor, liere is a joker. 1 lie
proposed amendment says: "Tfie
city of St. Johns may sell any
building or parcel of laud owned by
it which may not be needed for
public uses, nnd the Council shall
be the exclusive judges as to
whether such property is needed
for public use." In the word "Ex
elusive," to my mind, lies the
joker. Are the people of St. Johns
ready -nnd willing to give any man,
or set of men, "exclusive" right to
trade at their expense? If so, then
I want to be elected councilman at
large so I can have n hand in the
pot. To illustrate what I mean;
Our city dock can be sold for $75,
000. The Council has exclusive
right to sell. Councilman Cook
said a few weeks ngo in the Review
that he was getting old and wanted
a few good things now, or some
thing to that effect, so he was in
favor of selling the dock. Now
five councilmcn and the mayor
could sell the dock, they could have
the "exclusive " right, lave coun
cilmcn and mayor at $10,000
apiece would be f 60,000. Now sixty
thousand nutl seventy thousand
would be $130,000. Now do you
suppose you could buy back the
dock for two hundred thousand
dollars? This would give the old
men something of a stake at the
expense of future generations, Peo
ple of St. Johns, arc you ready for
Huchntlcul? Urother Collier may
smooth this thing over, or he may
not know. He may satisfy the G.
O. I'.'s, but not the Socialists. The
subject will be discussed in the M.
W. A. liall next Sunday at 3 p. 111.
All who arc interested, come.
Yours for a true Democracy,
G. L. Pcrrine.

GOOD meat that Bitgood & Cole's
lit the place to cet it.. An ever in
I creasing trade is sufficient testimony
I of the fact that they are giving; per
feet satisfaction. Nowhere else in
St. Johns or Portland, for that
matter, is better meat sold. The
prices are always just right and the
meat is ever fresh, pure and whole
some. If you are not a patron of
their market as yet, it will be 'to
your advantage to give them a call.
A full and complete line of all meats
usually kept In a first class market
is always found at this market.
Courtesy, fair dealing and honest
weight in connection with the very
best meat the market affords is
what is increasing their trade in
such a gratlfmig manner. Call, and
place a trial order. Bitgoou fit
