The sewer question is still a live

but no pay has yet been applied
for. Wonder why.
Had the "No scat, no fare" fal

many of the populace would likely
be seen carrying camp stools under
their arms when they went to Port
land so that they would be assured
of a seat coining back.
Rushlight put it all over Mayor
Simon Monday in spite of the strong

departed from its rule of supporting

change of mayor will be beneficial
or not, remains to be proven.

Kditor Review: Our Memorial
Day has come and gone, and with
a full attendance, our W. R. C.
with our Post attended the pre
Memorial Day services at the St.
Johns M. 15. church. The preach
er, who is the son of an old soldier,
talked to us with the spirit and un
derstanding. As next to being at
the front comes our loved ones tell
ing us of the times that tried men's
souls, and women's too, (as I never
shall forget when in my 16th year,
I watched for the static to come
from the front, as my brother in
Co. A of the Old Minnesota ist
was tosting his first real trouble at
the battle of ist Hull Run. The
remembrance is very vivid after
these long years J May Memorial
Day last as long as we have it free
country. We can well say:
livery year our numbers lessen,
Dentil is thinning out our ranks,
And we're marching to the river
liven now we're on its banks.

Hut is it rotten ? On the contrary, it could be leased to good adyan- And be parted nevermore,
isn't it one of the greatest coiiveu- tage and enough money secured in '
icuccs we have In some respects
it is not first class, but isn't it us
much as can be expected of
suburban service? It is true the
cars are generally crowded by tin
time they reach Piedmont from
St. Johns, yet it is seldom that (bl
ears are uncomfortably filled when
they leave St. Johns. More often
can only n do.cu or less passengers
be found in the cms as ,wy leavt
here. Is that sufiicicnt,' reason fm
better service than now obtains? In
dollars anil cents, no. It will be
noticed that cars on other lines are
crowded as badly at certain timet,
of the day s on the St. Johns
line. The city is expanding all the
time, more cars are Iwiug added,
more liueH laid, more power being
provided for.antl u tliouwiud and out
expenses that the general publU
seldom realize. The time no doubt
will shortly arrive when the Port
laud Railway company will con
struct another line to St. Johns
which will be more tlirect and with
less stops. Hut until then there is
really no reason to complain. II
we had no service at all there would
be something to murmur about.
Hut since it is possible to reach
Portland in less than an hour, leave
every 20 minutes or le and have
a seal when we leave here at leant,
it is not so bad as it is sometime,
painted. We have noticed the ser
vice in Chicago, Pittsburg, I.os
Angeles, and other cities, and
this way to pay the interest 011 the
dock bonds and also 011 the addi
tional bonds for construction of
switches. Prom a business stand
point it would- surely be the best
thing to do. It makes a difference
of one mill in the tax of every prop
erty owner in the cily whether
the tlock is leased or not. Appar
ently there is no chance whatever
to lease it in its present condition,
mid it would be very easy to as
certain if it could be leased after
the sidetracks had been provided
for, by advertising for bids of lease
with the proviso attached that the
city would provide the same. It is
a shame to allow the splendid dock
to remain idle when by theexcudi
Hue of a little more money it might -remember.

It requires the combination of cap

like individuals, will take as much

strange as it may seem, they ate
sometimes worthy of credit for the
things they do, but never get it.
The acts of a corporation are never
commended, always condemned.
That seems to be human nature.

The new Hroadway bridge prom
ises to be of no small benefit to St.
Johns. A well known sea captain
who plys his vessel regularly be
tween California and Portland reg
ularly states that after it is con-
a .a .
sirucieu uie great majority of sea
going vessels will tie up at St. Johns.
The Portland bridges arc becom
ing a source of much inconvenience
to maritime traflic, and if the gov
ernment heeds the largest petitiou of
its nature ever presented, the draws
will remain closed during certain
hours of the day. This will inure
to St Johns' benefit as a shipping
point. As a .result large warehous
es and wharves will make their ap
pearance along the water front, and
will mean the belting of the peiiiu.
