NO. 31 Jhe Toastmaster Investigated Landings The Short Ballot Herald a New Era 1 Will Build on Peninsula Looking for Suckers Memorial Day Thanks The lads and lassies of the Jntues I0I111, h h!h school deliahted the! friends by their clever performance Saturday evening. The auditor in in of the new school building is neatly and comfortably furnished has good stage arrangements ex cepting the curtain. A good drop would make a wonderful improve niciiti The light and acoustics of the hall are all that could be dc sired; The play was a surprise to the audience, not that it was ti brilliant or masterful production, or one rc quiring intricate tccuiquc iu stage Netting and appliances. On the the contrary, it wa.f merely an in cidcut in the life of a college stu dent, requiring no paraphernalia that might not be picked up iu nl most any home if we may excludi the professors's whiskers. But the simplicity of the play and modest environments were more than offset by the inimitable acting of the different characters. There wasn't a slip on the part of any one during the entire performance and no trace of that lack of case on the stage so common to nmntetirs. Their deportment vas that of pro fessiouals till the way through. Arkic Anderson, in the double character of spendthrift schoolboy lover and hired girl, was a jmkicIi, and kept the audience laughing as long as he was in evidence. Curl son, the nbditctcd, played his part equally as well. Cecil Mugoiic was a "bcrcum" as the Freshle ho "loved and hoped." Miss Couch well, all she had to do was sim ply to net "natural" to make her nil her role implied, the charmer of both Freshle and Soph, and her crformaucc was not such a stir prise when wc consider that the bright-eyed little Miss has perhaps already experienced Iu real life something of that which she so cleverly delineated. Mrs. Reed (Ruth Cauright) had nothing to say, but she said it to the point and with emphasis, particularly when she took the "Prof." by the collar and yanked him into her little deu to settle with him for his delin quencies. The long suffering,, dig I'iflcd, aristocratic, bewhiskercd professor, labored under a iouder load of grey matter and whiskers, mid Jerome Whisler carried his part well, even to spiking the ene my's gnus when he learned the whilom servant girl was the Soph be had denied the house. Frank Wright and Byron Poff, Frlshies who ubducted Hill Morgan the Soph, executed the job with neat ness and despatch, but not until Hill had given the former an ele gant black eye. Hasil Smith as n 11 friend of Dill did good work. Then last and least, iu avoirdupois but not iu action, was "Huzzer," the '.'kid brother" of the Reed family, kept secrets just like a boy, nud Master Verne Hall performed liis part in a manner worthy of his mother, and that is all wc need say of the son. The students did not receive the patronage they really deserved. Many of our people have gone tp Portland time and again, paid from 75c to $1.50 and up to see uti en tertainment not nearly as good. It is too bad that the auditorium was tiot packed to the limit instead of be ing .but three or four hundred there. We should be more loyal to our youngsters. They deserve it when they arc making extra effort to do something for themselves. We should at least be as free to commend and support a worthy enterprise such as this as we are to condemn aim puntsu some question able escapade our youths sometimes indulge iu, If their laudable un dertakings were more earnestly sec onded by their elders there would be less of that among the young which we condemn. There are no brighter or better youug people as a class on the face of the earth than we have in St. Johus. There are a few hoodlums as there are everywhere, but we believe even these if given the proper encourage ment and assistance would develop into sterliug manhood. We do not know whether the students could be induced to repeat the program or not, but we believe they could fill the hall if they should do so, for we have heard nothing but praise of their performance Sat urday eveuing.

Elite Milli- 3I?3C County Judge Cleeton, aud Com missiouers Hurt and Lightucr, with Road Superintendent Chapman, were in St. Johns I'riday invest! gating county roads and ferry laud ings. They agreed that while 1 boat operated upon a cable would be much more economical aud allow better service it would be impossi ble to install It under the law as passed. They also said that the architect who designed the Sellwood ferry was at work on plans for the St. Johns boat which is to be of similar construction but longer and wider to accommodate the large number of teams hauling rock from the West Side crushers. It is the board's intention to immediately oil Willamette Boulevard aud that part of Columbia boulevard not tak en over by the city. Commission er Hnrt was of the opinion that, if asked, the board would place crushed rock on Willamette boule vard from the North Dunk cut to Richmond street. It was, however, explained that as soon as the city let any contract for improvements of any nature on a county road, even if it be only a sidewalk, the section ol the road so improved be comes at once a city street aud the county has no further interest in it. Many changes are to be made iu the personel of the St. Johns post office. Postmaster T. J. Mouahau has scut in his resignation to take effect as soon as possible, Miss Ma bel McLean, his assistant has gone to her old home in Wisconsin where she will be married. Mrs. Rex Dry den. (loiincrly Miss Anna Rob ertsou) is now temporarily doing Miss McLean s work. Mr. Mouahau is retiring to re sume his position as manager of the St. Johus office of the electric light department of the Portland Railway Light rower Company, which he teld for some time previous to 11c cepting the office of postmaster. 1 lie St. Johus postolhce is iu the third class nud the salary is now $1700 a year, with $400 allowance for clerk hire. It is surprising to the general public to learn that bi Oregon City aud Albany, both ot which have smaller population, the allowance for clerk hire is $4000, just ten times as much as allowed for the St. Johns office. It is expected by iiiuuy that Mr. Mouahan's successor will le Fred C. Couch, sou of K. C. Couch, the present mavor of St. Iu ins. u votint business man of the town Acting on a tip quietly Chief of Police McKinney, onus, Sunday arrested ieke, of that place, for Henry having stolen goods iu his possession. Upon being arrested, Lieke implicated oe Mnhnuey, a checker at the b. t a c f -- I , . .1 1 . 1 ' man there, whose name he claimed not to know, as the thieves, saying he had gooduaturedly allowed them to leave their loot at his place un til they could dispose of it, at the same time admitting that he knew it had been stolen and that he and the unknown man had taken it to St. Johns in a buggy. Lieke has hitherto borne a good reputation in St. Johns. He is a Wells Fargo driver and has also worked for the O. R. & N. and the Union Meat company. When ar rested he had in his horns a large amount of velvet of Hue quality, about which he tells conflicting sto ries. He was taken to Portland Sunday by Detective Dryden of the S. P. S., who says that Lieke while driver for the Union Meat company was always reporting a ham or other piece ot meut short. Joe Mahoney and Hal Osboru were arrested Monday morning for the larceny of a bolt of cloth worth $120 from the Spokane, Portland & Seattle Railway company, May 20. The complaint was sworn to by G. M. Glines. The detective work leading to the filing of the com plaint was accomplished by Police Chief McKinney, Telegram. Building Permits No. 60 To N.J.

John Noce has commenced con struction of his new business house on North Jersey street, adjoining the St. Johns Millinery store. Councilman George L. Perrine has the brick work in charge, which means that it will be done well. Americans rarely realize that our custom of electing ten or 20 public officials at one time is absolutely unique among the nations. Of course the people do not really select each as the ten or 20, they only elect them. No electorate on earth ever had iu mind at one time so many favorites. So the politi cians do the selecting beforehand by pasting a trademark label, such as "Republican" or "Democrat," on certain men, and the people if they like some one prominent candidate who bears it, will vote for every one else with that same label. 1 hat is why we get good mayors aud bad nldcrmcu. And that is why the politicians, with their strength unit cd on specific programs for minor nominations, can elect rascals while well meaning public is making up its mind about the head of the ticket. In a village it is easy for theclcc toratc to choose a host of local offt ccrs, because the people know the candidates by hearsay. Hut when the number becomes large the avc lines become choked, and the pub lie, having no definite ideas of its own, votes blindly by the trade mark labels, aud the boss wuo at taches the iudistcusablc labels to the candidates becomes master. The number of elective officials must be reduced tilt it comes with iu the scope of effective public dis cussiou. Passing the candidates through the lime light a few at n time will make possible real selec tion nud real government by the iH-opl -. The cure is .summed up iu the words "short ballot." "The long bnllnt is the politician's ballot; the short ballot is the people's." Hx. Official Notice is Vital That absence of official notice is particularly vital to an election has been demonstrated iu regard to the ferry bonds voted upon in March. It seems that the ordinance author izing and providing the time and manner of holding the election was published eight days before the election, whereas the charter says teu days are necessary. The bonds have been held up accordingly, aud the attorneys who are passing upon the bonds are seriously debat ing whether or not to take a chance upon tlie same, hliice mere was n notice given, by placurd and by publication in the shape of an ordl- , nance, it Is likely they will be ac t VI' , cepted, even if two days discrcpau- Ot St. f.. I,II.U,, Aa lln.t wjr ill I'liuiiiuiiuii wwia miah. iihm there been no notice whatever the bonds would not have been looked at for a minute. It is vexatious that more speed has not been made iu the sale of the bonds. The free ,,.,,, rn 1w ,, money is secured and the sale is consummated. Then the county commissioners have six months in which to construct the boat and tow her down to St. Johns, They 1 say t)iree mouths will be sufficient time, however. Care of Orphan Children The Supreme officers of the Or der of Owls at a meeting recently held resolved that the order is now in a position to care for aud edu cate orphan children of deceased Owls that may require support and , education from the general order. A tuviaiuu iiua uvwu iiiuuu tut u building, attendants and all the requisites thereto to give such chil dren proper care, clothing, educa tion and attention. It is located at it beautiful point iu St.Joseph coun ty, Indiana, overlooking the St. Jo seph river and the St. Joseph val ley, This is the first step toward the accomplishment of the three fold purposes of the order, which is; Care for the orphans, cure for the aged and aid the infirm, sick and disabled. Miss Mabel McLean, who has been employed iu the postoffice since Mr. Mouahau took charge of it, resigned a few days since and returned to her old home iu St. Croix Falls, Wis., the fore part of the week. Miss McLean leaves many friends behind who would greatly enjoy being there to assist in throwing the rice and old shoes. The woman of today has good health, good sense, good temper, bright eyes and a lovely complex ion, the result of correct living and good digestion, wins the ad miration of the world.

In the near future the Southern Pacific company will make an an nouncement of its plans. These plans will include the construction of one of the largest power houses in the world, fitted with powerful turbines that will be driven by n number of streams that flow from the glaciers of Mount Hood. These streams will be tapped at appropri ate points, aud much of their water drawn by flumes to a vast reservoir which will be constructed by d tin tiling one of the upper volleys and so turning it into a great artificial lake. From this lake penstocks and flumes will lead to the power house, there operating the turbines to be directly connected with the giant generators. Seven miles of flume have already been built. F.lcctricnl energy thus obtained from the power of the mountain torrents, will be conveyed over heavy copper cables to sub-stations lu the uctglihorliood of Uuckitmns. Here the tremendous voltage will be transformed into reduced cur rents, nud carried over other trans mission lines to Portland and other central points, where it will be marketed for industrial aud other purposes. A part oi the current will be used to electtirally operate the suburban lines of the Hnrriuiau system iu the Portland district, while sections of the main line will also be equipped witli the same subtle and owerful motive foice. The construction and develop ment of these electric plants herald n new era for the Pacific slope par ticularly for the Pacific Northwest. These plants mean that power will be furnished Seattle, Tacoma, Ccn tralia, Chehalls, Vancouver, St. Johns, Portland, Oregon City, Su lcin, Roscbttrg and other towns, its well as their iiidciH'tidcut territory, at much cheaper rates and iu much greater quantity than ever before; and that there will be n rush of industries to the coast, bringing a new prosperity iu their wake, aud swelling the payrolls of the section to undreamed ot proportions. Aim it will mean further that Portland, as a logical center of this vast zone, will become the greatest metropolis of the West aud that the city will rise to her destiny aud become the financial, business aud industrial capital of the Northwest.

Work on the foundation plans , nave already started. The main building of the new plant will be four stories after the first portion is completed. The contracts calling for the con struction of the plant have already been signed in Chicago by Sulzbcr- ger & Son, owners of Schwartz child & Sulzberger of Oregon, and the head officials of Swift & Co, The papers arc now enroute to this city and will be signed by President L U. Colt of the Union Meat com pany and J. L. Sterrctt, president of Schwartzchild & Sulzberger of urcgon. The fact that the plant must be iu operation within a year calls for very quick work of construction forces and for that reason it is tin deistood that a large number of men ore engaged iu drawing plans for the machinery, which will be installed as the building construe tion work progresses, instead of waiting until the plant is complet ed. The lormal entry of Schwartz child & Sulzberger into Portland has created much comment among the livestock trade. For awhile it was feared that the plant would be constructed elsewhere 011 account oi the difficulties of arriving at a site selection here. It was generally understood that the big independent packing coticcrti had taken au op tion 011 the plant of a Tacoma meat packer, which would probably have been taken up had the negotiations here for a site fallen through. The Schwartzchild & Sulzberger company purchased a lege packing house at Los Angeles and with the addition of the modern equipment at Portland will be able to circle the entire country with its product. The company has always been known as the biggest Independent meat packing concern iu the United States nud for that reason it has assured Portland of being a com peting point for the sale of livestock. Journal. Swat the Fly Witli the approaching hot weath er comas the urgent request from all health officers for cleanliness and care of garbage. Decay of refuse matter is one of the worst disease breeders. Continually comes the call for more care. Now with the hot weather comes the fly, one of the greatest Instru ments iu the disease spreading that is known. Why not get rid of the fly? All disease germs cannot be killed, but the germ carrier can be kept from the home. A few fly killers iu the house aud a little care about the screens will do wonders. When yon see the flies crawl around the sugar bowl or cream pitcher, did it ever strike you that he may have come from some ones open garbage can? Do you realize that the fly crawling on your baby's bottle nipple may have come from some cuspidor? Are you willing to allow that to go on unmolested f Does the thought of the millions of tuberculosis germs from that cuspi dor and the fly's foot worry you iu connection with yourbaby's health aud happiness? It should. SWAT THE FLY I Manager Nelson of the Electric lias conceived the unique idea of giving a 10c flykiller with each 10c admission at any matinee next week. Don't you think it a good idea? Every citi zen iu St. Johns should co-operate with the Electric iu this plan to equip every St. Johns home with plenty of "swatters." mere are six of those matinees noue too many fly-killers for any home. The Review joins iu wishing great success to these "swatter matinees at the Electric June 12-17 inclusive.

The West is looking for suckers, says a former Berrien resident, Er- vin Morgan, who is now iu Kent, Wash., working for G. L. Parcc. another former resident. Here is Morgan's opinion, written to a friend, of that part of the great Northwest which he is In: "If you want to see where thev sting you for property come to the coast. There arc any amount of people who arc stunc who would be glad to get out of here, some mat nave occn Here tor 20 years who have not been lucky enough to find n sucker.

To show volt how wet it is here, they have to fight the moss off the lawns, and ferns come up through the cracks iu the plank walks. Now this is the truth. There is some laud here that isn't over two Inches of soil. Under that you get a very coarse gravel, ike eggs. The laud will dry out in a week after the rain stops. The valley land between Seattle and lacotna is good, rich land, and it iritigs from $500 to $ 1000 or f 1500 au acre. 1 he taxes arc $7 to $io au acre and they ciiarge $.o au acre cash rent.

Coming west 110 doubt with the ex- lectatiou of fairly picking gold off the trees, the illusion is dissipated when he found he had to word for it instead. 1 11 the last paroxysms of homesickness, he rebels against everything; nothing looks good, everything bad. And in order to vent his discontent he resorts to gross exaggeration, distorted facts aud prevarications that would be enough to cause Ananias to turn green with envy. Of course the conditions as he states are without the slightest foundation, and are ravings of a diseased mind caused by homesickness mid disappointed lopes. The west is made up of sterner stuff men and women with pluck and determination. "Dear old Michigan" is his wail waking and sleeping, aud he will never be satisfied until he hides behind his mother's apron strings once more. Then, perhaps, he will realize what consummate ass he has made of limself and be sorry he ever wrote such veritable rot. The disease is not new; it is old as the hills, but seldom sets iu so viciously as iu tills instance. Many of the people coming west get it aud either live it down or return cast. Most of tiie people living out here have set tled definitely only after their sec ond visit. The assertions made in the letter ure so absurd aud self- contradictory that it is a waste of time to refute them in order. The real sucker is the man who comes west with the expectation of beami ng rich iu a year or two without aboring for it. His chances for becoming independent are teu iu the west to one in the east but he must work, not blubber. It is worse than useless to take any medicines internally for mus cular or chronic rheumatism, All that is needed is a free application of Chamberlain's Liniment.
