"Following the recent election anc

the importance which will be attachot'
to the way inw hich you conduct youi

which will bo the, last year durinp

any misstep which any of you maj
mako is apt to result in more or cat
embarassmcnt, not only to you but
also to the city administration, I
want to impress upon you especiallj
tho value of co-operation bctwoen
yourselves and tho city officials. Co
operation in this instance is not only
advisable that there will not arise any
difliculties in the matter of breaches of
tho liquor laws, but it is also a policy
of good sound business.
"I nm not expressing in any way
what my stand, or the stand of the
administration, is ns regards to li

tho liquor laws of tho city uro onforc
ud und enforced without favor to any
party or yarties. The liquor laws and
regulations of the City of Bandon are
very strict and easily ovorlokod in the
matter of details and I request that
you take especial pains to acquit your
selves with them ami od your very
best to sec that they arc lived up to
in each of your establishments. There
have been several complaints of minor
uaturo that have been brought to my
attention, but I hopo that tliore will

ly in the city liquor laws which must
be lived up to anil bronchos of which
will result in prosecutions, is tho sec

The Council last night accepted the
lid of W. II. Webb, of $11,900.12 for
ho improvement of Oregon Avenue
from the south line of Wall Street to
,he center lino of Eleventh Street, fol-
owi.ig the acceptance of a proposition
mnde by Mr Webb that he would stand
the dilferenco between the asscsed val-
jntion of the property and tho assos-
mcnt for the work, where the asses-
itent overran the valuation and the.
aroperty owner refused to pay the
It is thought that in most of the
jnos ,-wljorc tho nssesmcnt overruno
ho valuation, the property owners
.vill pay for the excess without pro-
'.st, but should thoro be any protest
Mr. Webb is to stand the loss and
not tho city. In most of the cases the
assessment will bo well below the
valuation et on tho property by the
County Assessor, but there are a few
Further than this and principally
on account of the condition of the
money market, Mr. Webb is going to
illow a five per cent discount to those
.vho pay their assessment in cash in-
sted aof applying for bonds.
So great was tho anxiety of the
Oregon Avenue property owners who
tttended the meeting of the Council
to have the work on the street com
menced that thoy offered o make up
the difference out of their own pock
ets in the cases where the assess
ments overran tho valuation.
Mr. Webb stated that the actual
onstruction work would bo started
it once in order to tnko advantage
of the abundant supply of water dur-
ng the winter months. Cutting for
the grade from Wall Streot to the top
of tho hill will have to bo done by
luicing and considerable water will
lou sed in tho work. It is thought
that the dirt taken from this cut will
be used to fill undor the buildings
long First Street between Handon
ind Alabama Avonuc.
Tho surface of tho new street will
be plunking.

Tho celebration of the birth of
Christ by the Chrintjiin people of
the world on Christmas day while
many of tho greatest and ndvanced
Christnin nations-are engaged in the
most ruthless and devastating war in
all history has caused some to ask
the question are the nominal Chris
tians really Christains. Some critic
even go so far as to assert that the
one thing the churches will not
preach nor'the members live' is Chris-
lain pity, iney cite tor prool the in
equalities in the distribution of the
necessities of life, our caluousncss
n viewing the distressing hunger and
all the ills caused by dire poverty.
Wo are all engaged individually and
and nationally in asad and cruel
strife for our material welfare. We
hang ruthlessly onto class privilege
and all social and industrial injustices
that servo our selfish desires. Tho
nations are ever ready to wage war
over trade rivalries.
In thruth we must plead guilty to
the indictmont. As Christains wo
are a sorry lot. Wo try to get to hea
ven cheaply, by formal acceptance
ind faith only. We believe and do
ijrcat honor and glory to God and
are as mean as ever we please.
But for those who are inclined to be
ne8Himistic over tho accomplishment!!
of tho Christnin religion, a review of
ihe conditions before the Christnin
rra will dispell a large measure of
their gloom.
Tho accepted status of cruelty and
injustice of that era would not be
tolerated for an instant by any ele
mont of society today. We have
failed miserably of the ideal goal,
but practically we have won a world
of achievement. Steadily tho broth
srhood of mankind hns advanced.
Nominal christainity has wrought a
i evolution In tho hearts and the lives
af mankind. Not in vain was the
leath on the cross. A new and better
.ra was ushered in with "Yo have
