Efforts are being made to arouse the taxpayers of every community; the bus iness men ho are afraid to express their political opinion or po to the polls and vote for fear of losing a customer; the conservative element, who never take any interest in politics, to at least go to the polls and vote. If they will do this, and take part in making the nomi nations, Aitoria, as well as every other city will have a business like adminis tration and reckless extravagance will be relegated to the rear. rhuaueipiua has given tne country a timely object lesson in demonstrating th public's ability to master and demolish a supposedly invulnearable political ma chine.

When he orders a new spa pc to suspend publication or sends Russia subjects to a dungeon for having opln ions, he is simply administering Russian 'justice." The wife and mother of the assassin of the Grand Puke Sergius are to be given a pension by the revolutionists The assassin will some day have monument raised to him by free Russia, An economic writer says: ''Every young married woman should know how to make bread'.The majority of them can make it if the young married men are able to supply the "dough." o Itavid .1.
