ECONOMY IN CITY EXPEND
A subject of interest at this time is
tho question of retrenchment in city
expenditures. This paper hns not
comented editorially on this subject.
Rut the facts nre that heretofore
the city has received as revenue about
$7,000 annually for saloon licenses
and tho regular eight mill levy on
nronertv has amounted to about
S3.000. Miscellaneous receipts such
as fines, etc., have made the city's to
tal income about $11,000 per year,
Out of this sum we have paid between
$C,C00 and $7,000 yearly as salaries
to officials. Then the city lights have
have taken about $1,500 to $1,800 per
year and the number of lights hns
gradually increased. Added to this is
an ever increasing sum for interest on
outstanding warrants amounting at
this time to something near $1,500
and then there is to be added sums
for street and sidewalk repairs and
goneral maintenances, not to mention
occasional jolts of $3,000 or more en
tanglements like the famous Sixth St.
In fact tho city at its best was not
on a sound financial basis. At this
time, $7,000 annual revenue from the
saloons appears to be glimmering, and
tho solo revenue for running the city's
is about $4,00Q. per year for $12,000
expenditures. We do not favor per
manent retrenchment, but at the pres
ent time when all lines of business
are being re-adjusted, and when busi
ness is dull, and particularly when the
city has recently suffered a near ca
lamity from fire, closed mills, etc., it
is high time that our city officials re
trench, until our 'city which we call
homo can be re-adjusted to our new
conditions. And if so, where can the
pruning hook be better applied than
to the item of $0,500, annual salaries
To the city officials we say "Draw a
mental picture of a river, broad, deep
straight and calm, which we will name
the City of Iiandon.. Descemlingthat
river is a ship labled "The Adminis
tration of the City of Randon". This
river, near its mouth, divides into two
channels making an island. Each
channel flows into the ocean. One is
narrow, full of many shoals, rocks
and curves, and is beset with treach
erous breakers. The other channel
continues straight, broad and deep
and if followed will carry the ship to
un entrance onto the high sea of fu
ture success. The one branch may be
labled unnecessary expense and the
other, economy. Tho good ship, "Ad
ministration" has arrived at the di
vision of the ways. The (light of
time will not permit a return, nor an
chorage on the spot. The administra
tion must choose, r.nd parson, the peo
ple are watching every movement.
IT WAS UNANIMOUS
Having reference to oar recent ed
itorial commenting upon the 12 to 1
vote of the school board, wo desire to
say that each member of tho board
hns since then called upon uh and as
sured us that the vote was unanimous,

sensation journals seek to awaken
We felt horror, and pity and sympa
But these emotions can not be mad

calloused in sentiment by over hand
line of such themes and now pass
too lightly, it is to be feared, over th
accounts of the latest butcheries and
works of destruction.
FAITH IN OURSELVES
The Power of Vision is a phrase
that is a favorite one with evange
lists but one that is as potent in
worldly matters as in the realms o
theology. The ability to see by intu
ition, beyond obstructions and bar
riers is a happy one for its possessor
nnd makes him a person of promi
nonce among men. The ability to see
linvnnil one's nose, to consider the
distant future instead of only the im
pending tomorrow is something that
should be cultivated. To most men, a
penny in front of the eyes seems larg-
nr than a dollar a short distance
Men with little vision, when the
pinch of hard times come, set about
curtailing expenses. Economy
omething that should be practiced
y all at all times. But if ever there
s an excuse for extravagance it is in
hard times. In times of financial de
pression the more people contract
their field of activities and limit their
outgo the harder the times will be,
For some years past Bandon has
been so busy making money that it
has not had time to consider and cul
tivate the amenities of civic existance
It has experienced a prosperous pros
ent up to within the past year. Now
t has leisure to take stock of itself
md consider the future. It should
onsider whether it can afford to invite
n strangers and show them its streets
ts city hall or its churches. There is
jo Bandonian who would not resent
my imputation as to the future of
lis homo town. If Bandon is to have
i future, now is a good time to pre-
oare for it.
GETTING IT STRAIGHT.
In a recent article of the Recorder
oncoming the History ot tne cie-
atcs of Bandon High School some
rrors were made which should be
orrected. A few of the names given
s having composed the teams were
ncorrcct and a unanimous decision
von at Coquille by Kate Chatham
and Jack Kronenberg was entirely
overlooked by the writer of the article
While we have not won the County
Championship for three successive
ears we have never made a complete
failure in any debate in that time
is in 1912, Jack Kronenberg.Lctner
Jallier and Harry Craine won one
loint for Bandon from Myrt e Point
md Margarette Haberly, Velnia Klep-
er and Pearl Craine won one point
it North Bend. In l!U!t Kate Chat-
burn and Jack Kronenberg won a un-
ninious decision at Coquille while
'earl Craine and Ernest Watkins won
lie point from North Bend at Ban-
Ion nnd at a later date in the same
year, .lack Kronenberg and 1'earl
Craine won one point from Marsh-
Marshfield at Bandon. While we do
not wish to detract from the
praise given tne winners
in debate that year, yet wo do wish
to give honor where honor is due.
SOMETHING TO MEMORIZE.
When earth's last picture is painted,
And the tubes are twisted and dried;
When the oldest color has faded
And the youngest critic has died;
We shall rest, and faith, we shall need
Lie down for an ueon or two,
Till the Mnster of all good painters
Shall net us to work anew.
And only tho good shall be happy;
He shall sit ill n golden chair
And nhall upland at a tenOeagiio can-
With IjiiuIikn of (hhiihI'n hair.
