President Taft. , .
THE progress of tho city beautiful idea is disappoint
ingly slow in MtidftmL The utilitarian idea, hu other
words the commercial spirit, hasvCull possession of the
city administration and of the citizens, but the equal
value to the community of beaut ifieation is not yet grasped.
It is all right to pave streets, to extend water and sewer
mams, to lay concrete sidewalks, but these, alone do not
make a city attractive, alluring or enticing. And for a
city with the aspirations and ambitions of Medford it is
just as essential to the realization of its dreams to become
the city beautiful as it is to bocomo the city well paved.
Medfbrd is deficient in park systems, deficient in street
lighting, deficient in shade trees, and no municipal effort
is forthcoming to remedy the situation.
For six months the council has struggled with cluster
lights for main streets. Practically all property owners,
with the exception of a fow mossbaelcs, have agreed to
pay lor tho postsstill there are no cluster lights.
The Southern Pacific stands ready to vacate the rail
way right of way from Sixth to Eighth streets, order the
shacks now adorning it off, and permit its beautification
as a park if the city council so requests yet the request
is not forthcoming. The ladies of the Greater Medford
club stand willing to assume charge of the parking pro
cess yet they are given no opportunity.
"What little effort is made towards beautification is
due solely to the public spirit of individuals and the club
women. It is time the city administration took a hand
and there is no time like the present.

There should be, both for the benefit of the farmer

A public market will help lower the cost of living and
that is one of the things we are seeking.
Local merchants cannot be expected to lielp in solv

ASSISTANT DISTRICT ATTORNEY E.- S. VAN
, DYKE of Grants Pass has rather strange ideas of
inculcating respect for the laws when he openly denounces
thein on the street and in the newspapers. '
Mr. Van Dyke says: "I appreciate very fully the im
Vcrtance of a strict prosecution of tho violation of any law
existing on tho statute books of the state of Oregon and
the evil effect on the body politic, which the support of
Then he follows with: "I have my opinion of the jus
tice of the fishing laws and have never hesitat
ed to say, nor do I hesitate now to make public my belief
that the closing of Rogue river to commercial fishing has!
Leen a great injustice to Grants Pass and its surrounding
Do not such utterances, coming from the man sworn
to uphold the law, have the "evil effect on the body poli
tic which the support of lawlessness engenders'"?
A district attorney who thus publicly condemns
laws breeds a contempt for the law which begets lawless
Probably Mr. Van Dyke also thinks the prohibition
;aw an injustice- and therefore makes no attempt to 'en
force it. Perhaps this is the reason why prohibition is
a failure ill Grants Pass.
Entertaining though it may be, the people do not pay
assistant district attorneys to comment upon the laws the
people pass themselves. They are paid merely to enforce
i;hem, and are expected to direct their energies to this end.
