An Knd to Patience.
To the Editor of The Journal. On
Sunday, October IE, the Oregonlan pub
lished a long article headed ''The RIs
and Fall of the Commission Form of
Government." In this article arter men
tioning Des Moines as an instance, the
writer gave Galveston the credit of be
ing the first city to Install same. Now I
happened In Sacramento in the aprlng
Of '62. That city had just been de
vastated by a flood, some 400 houses
being swept away. The city was very
nara up, being badly In debt and it had
a bad government.
So the voters put in Judge Swift as
nrst trustee, William Knox as second
and Josiah Johnson as third. They put
the city on a cash basis, built four miles
of levee, . raised all tha main streets
from 12 to 20 feet and practically saved
tne town, as many wanted to move
down about two miles to higher ground,
But old Mark Hopkins said "no," and
what he said went. Now I. knowlnx
tnis, wrote a short note askintr the
Oregonlan ff It had ever heard of Sac
ramento. My communication waa ig
nored. I thought if this form of gov
ernment had stood the test of 50 years
in, Sacramento it might ba well to try
it nere. at was running an right when

(2)--New settlers in remote sections
own very little land valuea. If they

not be out of place. The radical, though

cision In reference to the .use and sale
of Intoxicating liquors, among the of

the circular states, calls for the caVe-
ful consideration f our people, for the
reason that upon the action of the peo

eiopment of our town depends.! ... It la
also true that the rights and privileges
