Councilman G. L. Pcrrino's
nlan for a public comfort station
at the city hall grounds is a
most commendable one, and is
both a necessity nnd a conveni

ahead with his nlans. Ho con

One of our friends was heard
expressing himself in pretty
strong language the other day

the scores of books tilled with

told that ignorance of the law
excuses no one. How on earth

Tho Portland Public Docks
commission will force tho people
of that city to votoon a $5)00,000
bond issuo in June to build a
great public grain elevator nnd
storago wnrohotiHo. Tho bonded
indebtedness of that city has
reached a (liruru that makes the
tnxpnyor shudder to think about
it, but it seems tho end is not yet
reached in tlio program of city
enterprises. Ul course, no one
can explain why a grain elovn
tor is needed any more than a
municipal coal bunker or a hop
or wool warehouse, but tho Docks
Commission must keep busy at
something. Municipal grain el
ovators havo been impracticnblo
every where tried and tho service
to bo rendered is now entirely
supplied by private capital and
transportation companies. But
that fact alono is enough to
start tho agitator, and ho points
out to tho voter that the inter
ests now handling elevators need

docs. The state and tho polili
cians aro tho only possessors of
tho brain power renulsito to

Shall dogs bo tied up nnd led
by a string when upon tho
streets, or shnll thoy bo allowed
to run nt largo without strimr
nnd without muzzle, is tho ques
tion that is causing more or less
agitation at present. Tho dog
regulation question is an old
nnd vexatious ono for city ad
ministrations to contend with,
Naturally tho dog owner and
the citizen that does not possess
such an animal look at tho mat
ter from dilioront points of viow.
Tho formor believe they bIiouUI
havo ns much liberty as possible
and tho latter beliovo that tho
less liberty a canino enjoys tho
bettor for tho community nt
largo. So between tho two di
verging opinions tho only thing
to do is to try and strike a hap
py medium, wounciinmn Uow-
ney, with tho unhappy experi
onco of having boon severely
bitten by a dog, believes that it
would bo no moro than right
that all dogs do Kept in leash,
whether at home or on tho
streets. Another citizen con
tends that dogs would moro
likely go mad from being tied up
than from any other cause. Tho
previous council experienced a
trying timo with dog regulation,
in making ordinances and then
amending them to suit exigen
cies as they seemed to appear.
So what shall bo done with tho
dog, is tho question. It is
a question m Portland thnt is
continually causing moro or loss
discussion, bomo havo suggest-
ed that all dogs bo prohibited
lrom incorporated cities, somo
contend that all dogs found with
out a muzzle should bo shot on
sight, others claim that dogs
should be permitted to run at

Series of Lectures
"What the Catholic Church is
nnd is not, tenches and does not
teach, w ill be tho general scono
of a series of lectures to bo com
menced on Monday cvcning.Mny
.'ird. at eight o'clock at the Moose
Lodge Hall, bt. .Johns, nnd to
continue for an entire week.
Rev. Charles M. Smith of St.
Johns and Rev. J. H. Buck of
Forest Grovo are to be tho speak
The purpose of these lectures
is not controversial, but educa
tional; to give intelligent per
sons reliable information on a
subject which is discussed a
great deal, but understood most
mpcrfcotly. A certain Methodist
l(o v. J. U. Hem
moon, recently said: it is a
strange and lamentable fact that
not one Protestant in ten thou
sand knows the truth about the
teaching and practice of tho
Catholic church When a
person of common sense wishes
to obtain information about any
thing, whether political, religi
ous, scientific, or it matters not
what it may be. ho goes to head
quarters for authentic informa
tion- nover to tlioso who seek to
destroy, or who aro the enemies
of that which ho wishes to study.
Not ono Protestant in thou
sands over socks information
concerning tho Catholic Church
from Catholic sources."
The "Question Box" will be a
special featuro of these exer
cisos. Any one may ask any
serious question or questions on
tho subject of religion or tho
Catholic church: writo It on a
slip of paper, and hand it in nt
tho door, where a box will be
placed for that purpose Ques
tions can also bomailed.nddress-
ed to the Pastor of tho Catholic
Church. SL Johns: ordinarily
thoy will all bo answered on tho
same evening on which thoy
wero asked, and publicly in the
hall. This courso of lectures is
absolutely froo: there is no col-
ect on of any kind. Those who
can should bo at tho opening ono
on Monday ovoning, at which
important general explanations
will bo given. Reported.
