"WE TOLD YOU SO"!
Last winter the Morning Astorian
made a deliberate and conscientious fight
against a wide open town, with the re
sult that it was set down upon at the
polls with a two-to-one shock that will
not be forgotten in a hurry. The busi
ness men of the city were a unit for the
nasty program and they made common
cause with the elements that are respon
sible for the conditions that are now
affronting the whole city and causing
even the Evening Budget to "hold its
nose." Because the Astorian took up
the cudgels for decency and the proper
regulation of the sporting fraternity, it
was abused in unmeasured terms by the
gentry that foists these municipal evils
on the community and by those who
. . . 1 i i 11 1 it M
were allied witn tnein on we aouar

just what hole the repe?table sponsors
for the open town are going to crawl
but at. This paper is no stickler for a
deal level of morality, but it is a stickler
for common sense regulation of all the
kindred evils that work for "an open
town," and it will adhere to this pro
gram just so long as it operates under
its present management. The plea of
"municipal revenue" that actuated the
party now in power in this city, is of
the reactionary sort, and the "tainted
money" is burning a hole in the adminis
trative conscience just as we said it
would. Of course public sentiment will
bear a long, hard strain before it yields
to a revulsion, but it is coming, and
coming swiftly, and what the present
administration fails to do by way of
alleviating the obscene tendencies and
encroachments of the "open town"
phalanx, will be done by those citizens
who are not willing to tolerate it any
longer, and who will not pursue any
municipal ordinance in their plan of ex
purgation, but will resort to the more
decisive and sweeping function of local
option. Once this is invoked, in the face
of the raw challenge that induces it.
there will be little to hope for in the
matter of "municipal revenue." That
pretext will be ignored and the cham
pions of a wide open town will be driven
to their wits' ends to strike a municipal
balance thereafter. There is but one
thing to do and that is to enforce the
last police prescription, in abatement of
the growing trend of the ranker evils
and do it in such a manner that tboae
