At G. P. W
U. & P. Co .' Power
"What is tho ma ter of the lights"
is tho nuestlou that has been asked
most of any for tho post two nights.
It has beeii answered In many ways
but usually unsatisfactorily. The
electrio light company has just
installed a new dynamo, and for a
few nights until the machine has been
thoroughly tested and the geeriug
adjusted the lights will bo more or
less unastisafctory. W heu every
thing is again in working order m
moro trouble will be experienced.
On Monday night at 12 o'clock tlie
lights woro turned off and the work
of installing the dynamo was com
menced and by the middle of the
afternoon the power was truned on.
Tho new machine lias over twice
tho cajneity of tho old oiy which has
beon overloaded by the addition of
many lights. Now the company will
bo able to supply lights for an ordi
nary city of 10,000 population.

Just after train No. 12, which ar
rived in Ashland Tuesday morning,
had been carried , sufel across the
straits between 1'ort Costa und
Beuicla by the Solano, Monday even
ing, the big vessel began to settle and
then sink. The bout was in the slip
at the tlnio having not yet backed out
after unloading train No. 12. While
not completely submerged, tho vessel
has sunk so deep that even the hy
draulic jacks cannot innke ferry
aprons meet the bout. Until the
Solano is ruised, ull trains will be
compelled to go uround by way of
Stockton, so northbound trains into
Ashland will be about three hours
loto umtl tho damngn is repaired.
H iving been asked by many voters
of too town as to my sttitude touch
ing several questions of policy of ad
ministration of the city's affais in the
event of my election to the office of
mayor, I desire to go on record so that
there may be no misuuderstanaing or
If elected I shall do my best to give
the city a clean and buisuess-like ad
ministration, permitting no grafts nor
granting any special favors; doing my
best to s-e that the ordinances are en
forced in an impartial and n fail
manner. Should the library question
ever come op again, which seems
very doubtful, I would, uiidir the
circumstances be iu favor of resub
mitting the questions to tho tax
payers of the town with the privilege
of voting cu the amount of tax levy,
if uny, should bo made for its sup
port amk when that expression w.is
taken, to carry out the wishes with
no unnecessary delay and consider
rho matter finutly settled. .
An Impression seems to prevail
that there will lie an attempt to
aliolish tho saloons,. We do not so
understand the issue, but what is de
manded is that the saloons as well as
other places of business observe the
laws of the town, nothing further.
Ah to the report that we would
favor any particular cnrioration when
it comes to grunting franchises for
water or lights or any other purpose
there is absolutely no foundation for
In conclusion, I am in favor ot a
gcmrul cleaning up of the town both
morally and materially and confining
ourselves to such improvements us are
tbsolutely necessary to health and
omfort of our people.

"No occupation will n soon dipf R
sss the Indian nf his nonia;:ic instincts
and fix upon him permanenry of habi
tation as agriculture. Tilling of the
soil will necessarily obliire him tore-
main in one spot, and the performin
of certain duties nt proper times r.f
the year will instill inui him the ne
cessity for systematic work and f
ffivinir attention to details. To make
any real process the fndian must have
a home wherein will renter all hi;
interests, hopes and ambitions, at :
a home on a farm will best fill tin f
requirements. As th-re is no fl M if

acres, raise better crops, and live the
thrifty imb p nile-t life that falls to

like, also, to feel satisfied with what you buy.
