The ordinance which created
the local board of censorship has
been causing a great deal of ag
itation these days. It was con
demned by the Socialists at a
meeting held last week, and has
been attacked in the council
chamber on several occasions.
The ordinance was the outcome
of a petition signed by a large
number of citizens. Several
weeks ago petitions signed by a
few less names asked for its
repeal. Tuesday evening peti
tions signed by 3G8 names again
asked for its repeal, besides the
oratory against it before the city
council. The councilmen as a
result arc in a quandary. Ap
parently they arc willing that
the people should have what
they want in this respect, but
they are unable to learn how the
majority feel about it, and the
ordinance was retained Tuesday
evening by a very close vote.
Those in favor of it contend that
it has not been given a fair trial
and has not yet proven a fail
ure; that while it may be suscep
tible of certain alterations, yet
its purpose is commendable.
Those against it claim that it is
un-Amoncan" and unneces
sary, and subject to drastic con
ditions in the hands of a preju
dicial and malignant censorship
board. It is admitted by the
opponents of the ordinance that
their objections are aimed at
tho conditions that might arise
in the future through its opera
tion and not that the present
work of tho censors is obnoxi
ous. To settle the question
petitions are now being circulat
ed asking that the matter be
placed on tho ballot at tho April
election. This will probably
be done, and the subject thus
definitely settled. Whether a
censorship board is needed in
St. Johns is simply a matter of
opinion, and is decided accord
ing to each individual's point
of view. If it is needed itshould
bo retained, and if not, it should
be abolished. It is up to the in
dividual to decide for himself.
It would seem that the ordinance
in ita present form is not prac
ticable. To fully carry out its
provisions would Keep a censor
ship board working night and
day constantly, and then some.
No body of citizens can alford to
do this without compensation.
If it is retained it should be
amended, it would seem.

and have much to learn. The
only reason the score wasn't

they used two nrms around in
stead of one.
Tho boys' game was a thrill
