Dr. Langdon of Oxford is en
deavoring to prove that Noah,
and not Adam “ ate the apple.”
W e fail to see who will benefit
even though the Doctor proves
an alibi for Father Adam .
President Wilson desires that the
“ Mason and Dixon line” be forgot
ten and that there no longer be a
North and a South, but one united
country. The theory is good, but he
will have to put a muzzle on some of
the politicians who depend entirely
for success upon the waiving o f the
“ bloody shirt.”
Must Be Long Winded
The Monmouth Herald, in last
week’s issue makes the following an
“ Dr. C. J. Smith, o f Portland,
Democratic Nominee for Governor,
will speak here, July 4, from 1:30
until 12:00 o’clock a. m.”
The Doctor will certainly have to
be long-winded and be possessed of
unusual oratorical ability if he holds
any considerable crowd for such
length of time. Perhaps the Herald
is like the Dutchman, “ must take
them for what they mean, and not
what they say.”
Clean Up Day
In view of the fact that Falls City
is to have a big picnic the 4th of July
and many visitors from the neigh
boring towns and country will be
here, we should endeavor to make
everything as attractive as possible.
While nature has done much for the
city, it is also necessary that the
citizens should do their part toward
keeping it beautiful. There is much
rubbish and unsightly accumulations
that should be removed. Every
citizen should take pride in keeping
their premises clean and attractive.
Let’s put the best foot forward and
give the visitors a royal welcome and
a clean town.
The labor troubles in the United
States are assuming threatening
While many are in
clined to scoff at the idea that it will
result in anything more than a local
disturbance, we are inclined to be
lieve that if something is not done,
and that soon, to equitably adjust
the differences between the employer
and the employed that the tragedies
enacted in Colorado and Montana
will be duplicated in other parts of
the country, It has been the custom
when any difference occurs between
the employer and employed, to send
armed men to terrorize them into
submission. The laborer has rights
that should be recognized and given
due consideration, and to ignore
such rights and arbitrarially dictate
the terms of settlement [is contrary
to the Constitution of the .United
States and the principles ofgood

'the city council met Tuesday
evening in special session to con
sider deferred business. The prin
ciple business that came before
that body was acting upon the re
commendations of a committee
selected to canvass the bids for
street improvement. The commit
tee had recommended that the hid
of W. B. Stevens be accepted. The
question was brought before the
house and just what they did, un
did and didn’t did is an unsolved
problem. For a while it looked as
though they might remove all the
macadam from North Main Street
and toss it into the Luckiamute.
But as the hours passed and each
had exhausted his store of elo
quence they got down to business
and probably did the right thing
by awarding the contract to Mr.
Stevens. They will meet again
next Tuesday night to pass upon
the contract between the city and
Mr. 8tevens and approve of hie
bond to insure his faithful perfor
mance of his duty.
The attention of all is directed to
