Thete is no use beating about
the bush. Cottage Grove has
reached the point in her municipal
history when ways and means
sufficient to carry on the city gov
ernment must be considered by her
citizens. At present the city's
"bonded indebtedness is $5,000, draw
ing 8 per cent interest. Our streets
are, as all must admit, in a de
plorable condition. We have only
a 12 o'clock electric light service,
we have no night watch; and all of
these are a necessity to any well
managed municipality. It is not
the fault of the present city council,
nor of former city councils.
They have managed the affairs as
best they could with the funds at
hand. The citizens of Cottage
Grove should set themselves to
working out a plan whereby the
interests of the municipality may
be furthered. In the first place 8
per cent interest is too high, and
should not be paid any longer. It
is a safe assertion that money can
be borrowed at 6 per cent, and per
haps less. Why not issue new
bonds at a reduced interest and pay
off the old ones, at the same time
borrowing enough more to make
the necessary improvements? The
city can borrow nearly $2,000 more,
by issuing new bonds, without in
creasing her interest account.
Various complaints have come to
this office in the matter of obscene,
and vulgar language being used on
the streets of Cottage Grove, by
men, who, were we to intimate
that they were not perfect gentle
men, would be much offended. We
realize that many men so far as the
term is applicable in a business
sense, use language that is rough
and as a rule not appreciated even
by themselves, but no true gentle
men will use vulgar language in
the presence of ladies, and every
man, even if be be abdicted to the,
use of profanity, should refrain, in
honor of the woman who bore him,
from giving vent to uncouth ff
tionson the street co'rners.

Susan 11. Anthony, now comes
to the front with her opinion of the
Roberts case. Susan says: ':There
isn't a tnati in congress who dares
raise his voice against Roberts. If
he does his own record will be
sifted to the bottom. Almost
all men are guilty of violating the
sanctity of the home." Now for
the life of 'us we can't see, and
furthermore don't care what this
has to do with the matter of seat
ing Congressman Roberts of Utah;
but we would like to know how
Susan comes to know so doggasted
much about all the men?

Manila, Nov. 28, The trans

Colonel Webb C. Hayes and three
companies of the Thirty-first in

She nar.owly escaped disaster. The
Officers and soldiers were for 120
days bailing with buckets. The
steamer was unseaworthy, under

Her engines broke down, and she
rolled three days in a typhoon. Au

that the transport was unseaworthy ,
short provisioned, or undermanned.
Berlin, Nov. 28, "President
Kruger and President Steyn have

Joubert has three corps, one hold

heroes, for they were heroic in all
