A Fallacious Idea.
Occasionally in listening to
cussion of the railroad cmestion, one
hears it said: "The place is hi"
enough; I don't want a railroad,"
etc. This idea is a poor one. It im
plies weakness on the part of its pos-
sessjr, and a total lack of public
spirit. Rapid communication has be
come one of the necessities of the age.
By it bettor forms of living arc pro
duced, business is quickened, compe
tition is induced and life made in
every way belter worth living. Tho
man or the business that is afraid of
the competition that growth entails
deserves no groat amount of considera
tion. A railroad is not ono of the
prime essentials to a place, yet
present conditions are, lew things are
more potent in making a prosperous
ity than a line of railroad especially
when the city is a terminus, and a

At Taeoma Captain Adani3 has'.ened

of thc pioneers it can make no differ
