Willi what kind of hard surface

ben inticli mooted question. Rep
resentatives of the Hiissnin, Bitu

the merits of their various products

Hitulithic is in the lend so fnr. Hut
those favoring Westriimitenre mak
ing n vigorous fight, nnd if they
cannot convince n majority of the
property owners that it is the liest
from nil points of view it will not
be their fault. While owning no
property on Jersey street nnd view
ing the nintter only ns 11 citien of
St. Johns, we believe the merits of
the Westruinite should be thorough
ly investigated before any particu
lar kind of hard surface is definite
ly decided upon. If it is better
than all others, that is the kind
that should be laid, since the prop
erty owners nre unnnimous in want
ing the best in existence. If it is
inferior, the fact should be discov
ered, so that it will not be contin
ually bobbing up every time 11 hard
surface street is projected. The
company agrees to pay all cxctiH.
us of n representative to Ik selected
by the procrty owners to Chicago
nnd other points where the same is
nnd hits been in use for some time.
On the face of it.il looks liken vrry
fair proposition, and should entitle
the company to cousiderntion. No
kind need be decided upon until
bids nre in from nil hard .surface
concerns that care tocouietc. We
nre of the opinion that a saving of
nt least one-third may be obtained
to the proettv owners if ti decision
is Hindu nfter fair competition than
if some siecinl kind is selected and
decided upon before a call for bids
is ordered. As the Westruinite
jwoplc claim to be willing to guar
antee their work for us long jiviioil
us any other company dare, is pruc
lictilty a home institution and wim
ples of their products show tiuile-1
niuble merit, it is only fair and just
that they be allowed to present a ,
bid for Jeisey street. Ilecuusv it is
.something comparatively new
should be no objection to it. The
May be Representative
There seems to be nn elegant
chance Hint Hon. K. C. Couch will
be returned to the State Legislature
for nuother term. Councilman
Rushlight of Portland, who was
HON. K. I. tnl tll.
elected to the lenislnture, has
notiuced that he will not take his
sent, preferring to remain on the
council. We understand that in
such n case the defeated candidate
having the highest vote is supplied
to fill the vacancy. Mr. Couch was
thirteenth man, the first twelve
being elected, therefore, his chances
look particularly fine. Thirteen is
an unlucky number .sometimes, but
not always. The people of St.
Johns would be greatly pleased if
Mr. Couch secures the seat, lie is
the greatest booster we have for a
free ferry, and if he becomes a
member of the legislature a free
ferry at St. Johns is practically as
sured. At the recent election he
received nearly the unanimous vote
of St. Johns voters regardless of
mrty. A better representative
than Mr. Couch was never sent
from any district to any legislature.
