the property owners will pay their
assessments, knowing of these dere

doubt. Nor can they be forced to do
so In court, nor out of It. In constru

In tho plans, and takes no notice of
unauthorised concessions to any con

Primarily, the absolute need of a
new and commodious courthouse In
tills county, is beyond all controver
sy. And this Initial conclusion Is fol
lowed fast and sequently by the other
essential that the convenience must
be supplied at the earliest possible
date; but past experience has taught
the Clatsop citizen, that care and cir
cumspection are desirable in the ex
ploitation of the project The county
court is a unit In the recent conclu
sion to build it, and if the bids are
within reasonable standards when
they shall be opened at the adjourned
term of court, on the 17th instant.
further, steps will be taken to launch
the project and the levy will follow in
January. There is, roughly estima
ted, about 180,000.00 worth of good,
available material on hand, carefully
stored., and fully paid for; and the
plans and specifications and the con
tract for architectural supervision,
are provided for, and paid for, as well.
With this nucleus and a contract
within fair and eqltable bounds, there
should be jio serjpus objections to the
completion of the structure, and ma
ny citizens are free to express this
conviction. But it must be said In
this relation that there will be a
wide-spread and vigilant public scru
tiny of the processes involved in the
new enterprise, to. the end that all
bungling and misconceptions shall be
obviated, and the deal closed with
out recourse to legal intervention on
the score of public safety and compensation.

And now the vandal hand of com
mercialism Is to Invade the little old
thatched cottage at East Hampton,
Long Island, once the home of
the exquisite and all but Immortal
Howard Payne, and which Inspired
poem and song, "Home Sweet Home,"
and than which, nothing is dearer to
the heart of the world among the
simpler expressions of lofty and
beautiful sentiment. It would seem
as if this little unobtrusive monu
ment might be spared to sanctify the
one idealistic conception we cherish
so fondly; that even the march of
progress might pas? around the hal
lowed spot and leave it undisturbed
to the people who love it for what it
was to the heart-sick wanderer,
whose long exile ended only in death
thousands of miles from the scene
that gave Impulse to the ever-thrilling
theme; that some instant and
universal effort might be made to
put the "home" beyond sacreligious
touch for all time to come. The
whole nation would respond quickly
and generrusly to f-uch a pleti; and If
the plan should leave the place seg
regated, alone, with the invading ele
ments all but touching it in their cir
cuit about it., all the better; for its
conspicuousnoss then, would lift it to
a still higher plane of endearment In
the popular mind, and contribute to
its perpetuity as one of the cherished
memorials of America. It is not well
to utterly destroy the past and all it
has taught us of goodness and sweet
ness, and this one thing Is rife with
tender and wholesome lessons, and
should be immune from destruction.
BOND STREET IMPROVEMENT.
The scope of the Bond street im
provement makes it imperative upon
the city authorities to go to the very
bottom of the irregularities com
plained of In the matter of the fulfill
ment of the contract, and to make it
er points to the westward. Just where
the blundering lies cannot be pointed
out, but It Is becoming serious enough
to Invoke very definite Inquiry from
the postal authorities' chargedi with
the remedying of such faulty service.
And we hope the Investigation will
begin without loss of time,

Although I wring my hands.

Of golden suu and rain.
You piper, kind nnd hoavy,

If I should tell my story,

The folk would leave their soiling
And bid their buying go,
If I could but be telling
The things you let me know.
