The mayor and three members of
the city council retire this evening
from the positions they havo held
for two years with credit to them
selves and the town. Financial
affairs and improvement arc in

this is due to the retiring officials.

No one will believe the preacher
who stated tint our friend Amis,
the populist editor of the Uroad
Axe, had 100 to loan, provided a
bonus was in sight. No one ever
heard of an editor, especially no of
the opulir-t persuasion, having that
much money. It makes them
rustle, dunning delinquent sub
scribers who do not pay enough to
bny Kistagc, to get enough to eat
and pay ink and paer bills, with
out aspiring to associate with Wall
street usurers in business transac
tions. The preacher is mistaken.
Kditors have to pay bonuses in
stead of receiving them. Bro.
Amis can prova an alibi by the
entire membership of tho Oregon
Press Association, who travel on
free passes, eat and sometimes
drink at the expense of the towns
which they greatly honor by their
meetings. If money wm re'iuired
they would stay ot home.

The result of the Florence city
election will bo watched with
interest. While the women, per
haps, are not qualified to serve, it
is not probable there will be any
objection, and their acta as de facto
otlicials would be legal and binding
on the corporation. Tho election
may have been a joke to start with,
but the women may, take control
and try their hand at running tlr
affairs of the seaport town of Lane
county. Florence has never paid
any city taxes, the improvements
and expenses having been kept up
by fines and the saloon license.
This is a notable opportunity for
the women to show their hand on
the saloon question.
