motives thst actual himself and his un
disclosed principals In their opposition to
the will of the people concerning; the Broad

the manner In which the Broadway bridge
project was carried out is a fairy tale, of
a piece with the recent dynamite pint to

There has been no publio Improvement
ever undertaken fn this city which hss

approval. It waa submitted to and ap
proved by the Taxpayers' League prior to

farm and orchard products will be dis

United States Land and Irrigation
Show to be held In the Coliseum from
November 1 to November 24.
Railroad officials and fruitgrowers
bave been busy for the last few months
collecting samples for this display, and
while they did not aim to secure unus
ual products to pressnt an unfair ex
hibit, they sought to gather the best
specimens in each of the various lines
of industry represented In the state.
All the fruit . will be shown In Its
natural state and not In processed form
and undir seal as heretofore. It is be
lieved that In this way visitors to the
show will obtain a better idea of the
Oregon crops than If they looked at
them through glass Jars.
A display In which the local exhibit

Concerning Attorney-General
Crawford's Inter- .
In an opinion on this bill, ths Attorney-General,
after Quoting- It in part,
says, "That amendment vesta ths legal
voters of every city or town with au
thority to amend their charters in any
manner which does not violate the pro
visions of the constitution of the state
or- the criminal laws of tha etats."
There Is a serious question here be
cause the power to license, regulate,
control, etc, in the amendment comes
after the clause "subject to the consti
tution and criminal laws of the state
of Oregon." The intention seems to be
to make the power to license, regulate,
etc., superior to the criminal laws of
the etate. Why did not the amendment
read "The legal voters of every city
and town are hereby granted the power
to enact and amend their municipal
charter, and th exelnatv power to li
cense, regnlate, control, or suppress r
prohibit, the sale of Intoxicating; liquor
therein Is vested in such ninuiulpalHj-,
subject to tha constitution and crimi
nal laws of the state." Further on the
Attorney-General sayB, "Then it vesu
In the City Council, or In tha people
through the City Council, tha exclusive
power to control and regulate or pro
hibit the sale of intoxicating liquors."
It would be a sad day for our cities
when their Councils are made the ob
ject of the selfish greed of 'our brewers
and distillers. Political corruption of
th rankest and most rotten kind would
be the result. Are the voters willing to
place the control of saloons and dives
the question of having in connection
with them winerooma, gambling, Bun
day opening and prostitution to the
City Councils? Yet the Attorney-Qen-ral
of Oregon says that is what th
Bom Rule Amendment meana.
