Representative D. C. Lewis
has called attention to the fact
that it is the usual thing in
emergency clauses to have the
words "for the immediate pro
tection of the peace, health and
safety" attached thereto, and
intimates that owintf to it be
ing the usunl thins in amergency
causes, it is not as bad as it
would appear to the uninitiated.
In support of his assertion Mr.
Lewis forwarded 1 copy of
House Bill No. 484, (oding ex
clusive jurisdiction over Crater
Lake National VarV to the
United States, showirg that the
emerirencv clause therein con
tained the words quoted ahove.
Therefore, it is to bo assumed
that the words really do not
mean what they say; that
neither the peace, health or
safety is menaced; .hat it is
only a matter of form und jimv
ble of words. That being the
case, Mr. Lewis must bo held
blameless for using them in the
emergency clause m the merger
bill. The speed in which he in
troduced and secured the pnsH
ago of the bill is only a com
pliment to his oncryg and re

friends who borrow vour money are in the same class
with the schemer who tries to get you to invest it in
wild-cat enterprises. The temptation to spend your
money while you have it in YOUR POCKET is very
great. YOUR MONEY is your "best friend." When
it is in our bank it is SAFE. No one wants his bank

who objects to tho expenditure
of tho monev for the purpose
of giving this plant an outlet.

I hud consulted as many tax
payers as I could about the road
way, nnd ull fnvored its con
struction by tho city. I nlso
consulted lho wishes of many
tuxpuyers, upon the pnrk ques
tion, nnd nlso upon the proposi
tion to sell tho city dock. Of
the Intter only 11 out of 185 in
terviewed did not fuvor its sale.
Mr. Anderson nsks three ques

dm a grout deal: No. 1- "Will

where you got authority to spend
$0,000 for the road to tho pro
posed cooperage?" The city
council has full and undeniable
jKiwor to construct a roadway
within tho city limits where
deemed expedient and
l'his power is do
rived from tho city charter.
No. 2 "Are we not paying
interest on this money'" Hud
Mr. Anderson been a citizen of
the United States longer, he
would know that in this country
not oven a municipality can bor
row money without paving in
terest thereon. The days of
philanthropy are nast.

upon the new plant. If ho talks

Mr. Anderson further states:

is truly pathetic. As a matter
of fact city funds are spent

"A frog onco spit on a block

Mr. Anderson, but ho might
aptly havo added that tho "spit"
represented Mr. Anderson.
Air. Anuerson need throw no
bouquets at himself as being
tho cause of tho Gatton tract not
boing so far purchased. Tho
matter of purchaso was in
definitely postponed not on ac
count of Mr. Anderson's "at
tack," but in spite of it.
Now, if Mr. Anderson wnnts
to continue to knock the plant
of tho Western Cooperage corn
puny, which I believo will be

yet located in St. Johns, there
seems to be nothing to do but to

be consistent enough not to
prate about the brotherhood of
man nt tho same time. True
brotherhood of man teaches nro-
viding of employment for man
