DALLAS, OREGON, MabcH 12, 1907
The way to build up Dallat is to pat
ronize Dallas people.
The importance of choosing capable
men to take charge of the city's af-
faira for the next two years should not
be underestimated by the voters of
Dallas. Indifference to the manage
ment of the municipal government
and failure to Belect competent officers
at the annual election to be held two
weeks from next Monday would be
the most serious obstacle that could be
placed in the way of Dallas growth
and development at this time.
The management of municipal af
fairs is of as much importance to
the people living within the corporate
limits of Dallas as is the management
of the county government itself. In
deed, it is of more importance, if the
matter of taxation can be taken as a
criterion. .The city levy thlsytaris
higher than the entire levy for all
county purposes. Notwithstanding
the fact that the revenue from licenses
is greater than ever before, the city
levy this year is the highest of any
year since Dallas became an lncorpor
ated town.
It is for the people to say whether
they are satisfied with the present ad
ministration of affairs. It is for them
to decide whether they are getting
value received for. the money they
have been paying over the tax col
lector's counter iu the last four weeks.
It is for them to decide whether the
city is being improved as it should be
improved, and whether the business
institutions over which the city has
control and regulation are being man
aged in a way conducive to the best
interests of the town. These are the
things that must be decided by the
voters, and upon their decision will
depend the growth and prosperity of
the town for the next two years. How
important it is, then, that the decision
should be wisely made!
The matter of street improvement Is
one of supreme importance in Dallas
at the present time, and the people
will again be asked to vote upon the
question of purchasing a rock-crusher
and building permanent thorough
fares. Despite the expense connected
with the proposed improvement, the
purchase will probably be authorized.
The "bettor streets" platform will be
the popular platform this year. The
people realize that Dallas must pro
vide better streets for a steadily
Increasing traffic, and that the desired
Improvement cannot be made with the
material at hand. But for tho very
reason that the movement is popular,
no incapable or unfit candidate should
be permitted to slip Into office on thi3
popularity. The purchase of a rock-
crusher and the building of good
streets will cost a largo sura of money,
and none but the most prudent and
capable business men should be
chosen to handle this money. If the
money Is carefully spent and the work
wisely managed, the result will be for
the everlasting good of the town. If,
on the other hand, incapable men are
chosen to carry out the improvement,
the result will be failure and financial
Let our citizens ponder deeply these
matters and then take such action as
to them seems best Above all else,
let men be chosen who will at all
times labor earnestly and faithfully
for the upbuilding of the town; men
who will work first, last and all the
time for a Greater Dallas ; men who
are their own masters and have no
private or corporate Interests to serve ;
men who will firmly and righteously
guard the public morals without be
ing swayed by Puritanism or fanati
cism. Men such as theBe, and no
others, are needed. If such are
chosen, the beautiful and thriving
city of Dallas will continue uninter
ruptedly its onward inarch to great
ness and prosperity.
The value of the newspaper in the
community is being vividly Impressed
upon the minds of the people of Butte,
Mont, where a strike of the printers
and pressmen has tied up all the pa
pers in that city for over three weeks,
says the Pendleton East Oregon lan.
Traveling men from Butte say that
business has actually fallen off from
25 to 40 per cent in many line. The
city is lifeless. There Is actual busi
ness depression. Merchants cannot
advertise their business, the public is
prevented from learning anything of
the affairs or happening of the city,!
and public sentiment is wrought up to
a high tenson.
it is said that the suspension or no
other business in the city would have
caused one-half the depression and
inconvenience that has been caused
by the suspension of the newspapers.

The lawmakers of Oregon had their
say on the free pass subject, and now
it begins to look as if the railroads
will have their Inning by refusing
point-blank to observe the provisions
of the compulsory pass law. A
prominent official of the Harriman
lines says: "Wo intend to obey the
Chapin railroad commission law
the letter, and refuse ail gratuitous
transportation ; but so far as the com
pulsory-pass bill is concerned,
makes no difference to us whether the
labor commissioner or any other
official has been overlooked, no state
or county official will be given passes,
The railroads today pay more taxes
in Oregon than any other Interests,
and if the state wants its officials to
travel, let their salaries be raised or
these expenses provided for."

Thomas Williams Found Guilt v
Larceny from Dallas Clothing
House. -
Thomas Williams was arrested by
City Marshal Palmer on a charge of
stealing a pair of pants from Uglow'a
clothing store, Saturday, and upon
being given a hearing in Justice
Ilolman's court was adjudged guilty
and sentenced to pay a fine of $25,
The fine was promptly paid and the
prisoner was released. Williams has
a wife and child, and has been em
ployed in a logging camp west of
Falls City.
Williams and a companion went
into the store together, and while Mr.
Uglow was fitting the companion
with a new suit Williams deftly con
cealed a pair of trousers inside the
old suit and had the bundle wrapped
up by clerk Dunn.
Shortly after the men bad left the
store, Mr. Uglow missed the trousers
and at once started in search of the
strangers, thinking possibly they
had taken the goods by mistake. He
soon found the men, and, telling them
of bis loss, asked them to open the
bundle of old clothes. They readily
complied wjth his request but an ex
amination of the package failed to
reveal the presence of the missing
When the bundle was first handed
to Mr. Uglow, he noticed that it was
not tied like bundles are tied in the
store and he at once surmised that it
had been opened and the trousers
taken out Failing to flud the trousers
and believing that one of the men was
wearing them, he immediately notified
Marshal Palmer of his los. Williams
was overtaken ut the depot and
arrested just as he was preparing to
board the afternoon train for Port
land. A search of his person revealed
the fact that he was wearing the new
trousers under the pair he had on
when he first entered the store.
William! is a comparative stranger
in Polk county, but his acquaintances
informed the court that this was the
first time he had been implicated In
an affair of this kind and he was
accordingly , let off with the lowest
possible fine.
