    Motives Questioned
Sunshine on Mt. Hood ordinance no. 371
Editor Review:
What will our people do, take
the word of four of our citizens who
have been on Westrmnitc streets,
found them as good or even better
than claimed; or will they accept
the statements of every Jim Crow
penny-a-liner who has been in
duced to rehash a lot of insinua
tions, misrepresentations and false
hobtbVadvauccd by malicious oppo
sitiontothis paving, presumably
cnianatingfram, upheld nnd abet
ted by a corporation or trust with
every thing to fear ll-as good or a
better paving process is introduced ?
Not one of these mallgners of Wcs
truitiile hns ever seen a foot of it.
Hut one of them who so glibly calls
the leaders in the movement for the
best pavement there is for St. Johns
"lean and fleshy swivelchair poll
ticians" terms their work "hoarse
bcllowiiigs of disgruntled politi
cians" their views "narrow, bi
ascd" declares he has no thought
but the best interest of bt.Johns.and
he not a citizen of St. Johns, perhaps
not even of our country. He de
clares, this modern Sherlock
Holmes, that his "personal invest!
Rations" (?) were made because he
was "anxious to uncover what 1
consider a gigantic steal from the
citizens of St. Johns." Now it
is a puzzle too deep for the writer
to determine, the source of this
frenzied philanthropy, bucolic beu
evolcucc that would make two of
our representative citizens who
were sent cast to investigate this
paving (itiestlon one of 2 things, Idi
otic blundering dupes, or parties to
a "gigantic steal." The writer
docs not believe cither hypothesis
it seems more reasonable to believe
that this modern Sherlock was paid
so much tier for his literary stunt
and for the dirty dollars of tlitiM
who are endeavoring to stifle comix:
tltiou he has aided in perpetrating
11 slander upon our two rejected
citizens. 1 lie writer tloesu t like
to believe this, because this modern
Sherlock is a genial fellow withal.
nnd although he would call it nur
row minded to think he would thus
put a slander upon his fellows for
hire it would seem to be a greater
folly to do so for nothing. 1 he
self appointed detective would bet
ter turn his eagle eye to the inves
ligation of the motives which
prompts this malicious, vindictive,
relentless fight against Westrmnitc.
He would better serve St. Johns.
To the careful observer it would
seem that the opX)sitiou is in death
ly fear of Wcstrumitc, nnd leave
nothing undone, resorting to every
artifice known to the obstructionist
to keep it out. If it is so worthless
why this fear, this deadly, dogged,
determined resistance? There can
be but one logical conclusion, viz:
That Wcstrumitc is nil that is
claimed for it by those of our citi
zens who have seen It, the best hard
surface pavement in the world. If
it were n worthies protxisitiou the
opK)sition would be only too glad
to have that fact dcmouKttatcd by
having Jersey street paved with
that material. It would seem wiser
to follow the judgment of those
who have mm the streets iu use
mid listened to the words of the
highest praise our language can ex
pi ess spoken by the men who paid
their good money to have it laid,
than to swallow like a catfish the
rotten tissues of villidcation furn
ished probably by a couictittg com
pany and disseminated through its
tools, paid or otherwise. Veritas,
