no criticism could be made. They stood
wit the very best tn the country. Bui
there were not enough of tbem. Vigor

the construction ot - mora hotels, not

demands which will be made upon them
during th Talr tn-l08. In addition to
thla another great hotel la protected
that will he a credit to tha whole city.
' Paid Fire XVepartAeat. ' -' : ''
A year ago lent fall The Journal took
up the subject of a paid fir department
At the outset Ita poa'tlen wa bitterty
opposed by those who, having had thing
in a certain way. desired aiwaya to keep
them so. Portland then had. a part paid
department, a few-paid and a large num
ber of volunteer., la - tha . nappy-go-
Jucky village days tbi served the pur-
-poo and It mattered little how the men
were housed or provided . with'' Imple
ments" with which to fight fire. As a
matter, of fact Portland, waa at "a very
low ebb tn thla respect, and the ".fire
houses' era so dilapidated that every
aelf-reapectlng' eltlien was -heartily
ashamed of them. But the fight waa
r lght and til tlma tely - wort- Portland

.The Journal early realised that closed
boxes In th saloons . and restaurants
Were .perfectdeadfalls " of vice and
formed the greatest - single agency - for
the destruction of young and - innocent
girls. On that subject it had-' many
hearty co-workers, snd soon the whole
city wa aroused to the enormity of the
crimes committed against, the moral of
tha city. . 'An ordinance wan passed pro
hibiting such boxes, ths same to go Into
effect on October 1.. On that date the
matter waa taken Into tha courts where
the measure waa -Judicially upheld. - It
I now tli the supreme court and there
seems no doubt -that the lower court will
be upheld and that, the boxes wilt have
to go. -,
; Street Sign. ' !.'
' Portland . waa poorly equipped with
atreet algna. . Even In the down-town
districts no signs were to be seen and
the stranger within - our gatea was
obliged- to. flounder about- hopelessly to
get his bearings. In view of the near
approach of the Lewla and Clark ex
position when the city would be thronged
with strangers The Journal made a cam'-.
pslgn In favor of street signs with a re
sult that the. whole city I now supplied
wlth-flne metal signs at all atreet Inter
sections, to ihe- great convenience even
of the older residents. ' ' A campaign
that jraa started but which haa not yet
come, to a head was msde In favor of
a now system of numbering the streets.

tinuous method In vogue here. That, too.

: In no single Instance ha Ths; Journal
been mor bitterly criticised than for Its
strenuous tight against the re-election
of Blnger. Hermann to congresa. And
yet It begin to appear even to th moat
obtusa that The Journal knew precisely
what it waa doing and the action ot the
federal grand Jury yesterday la scarcely
calculated to Increase whatever popular
Impression that may exist that It didn't
knew what It-wa talking about then,
and waa making utterly reckless and
unfounded charge against a great and
good eitnaen of Oregon.
These are aome of the things which In

enjoyed by a paper of Ita yeara The
