Tho J913 city council will make

chapter In tho stormiest weather

mourners, no flowers, and no re

tho dying organization has been Its
dcflnance to tho taxpayers. When
tho council meets again there will
likely be many now faces. Outsldo ot

bills, and transact routlno business.

RELUCTANTLY nt'eodinj to tho wishos of a Majority
of Med ford's business men. tho following well-known
pronorlAMnvnors havo eonsontod to heromo pnndidatos for
the city council at the election next Tuesday, to serve,
without pay a .sufficient time to reorganize the city's fin
ances and place the municipality upon a business basis:
First ward. F. V. Medynski: second ward. Col. 11. II.
anient and r. .1. Kmeriek: third ward. T. V. Miles ami
Dr.'ll. r. ll'argrave. They stand pledged to a program of
iwimiiMiii' mill iffliiflll
These selections slumld meet univei'sal appvoval. All
are men of property and ability and with the city V best
interests at heart.' They will receive the support of
uverv taxpayer desirous of stopping the present excessive
expenditures and installing a business administration.
The present city administration has proved its inca
pacity to manage the city as It should be managed, to
keep expenses down, to lower the tax rate, to maintain
the eitv's credit without imposing needless burdens upon
the taxpaver. The council virtually admits that it docs
not know either what to do or how to do it. It is pathetic
in its helplessness.
Needless expenditures, like
ton ranch, must be cut out. Needless extravagances, nue
the pavment of $7f0 for eleven months' auto repairs
not including cost of operation for city employes' con
venience, must cease. Needless officials, with little or
nothing to do. must be dispensed with but the present
council will not do it nor has it any inclination to do it.
If the present council wanted to save the community
monev it would have inaugurated the economy program by
chopping its own salaries. Then it would have been in
position to cut other payrolls but economy of this kind
never was seriouslv considered.
The citizens' ticket, pledged to economy, efficiency
and business methods, offers the way out of what threat
ens to become an embarrassing financial condition inipos
in" needless burdens upon the community and impairing
its' credit abroad. Their election will restore confidence
in the city, its finances and its future.
Cancer Can Be Cured in Early Stages
Some eases of eancor can bo cur
ed. The nnmher of such cases can
he increased by earlier dincnosis
and better surgery. This is the only
hope that our present knowledge
justifies, but thi fact should be
known to the public. In the la-t is
sue of the Journal of the American
Medical Association, Dr. Joseph
Hloodgood of Johns Hopkins hospi
tal, Haltimore, declares that cancer
can be cured in nearly one-half of
nil cases if taken early enough. The
American Society for the Control of
Cancer, recently organized, says Dr.
Hloodgood, hopes t? bring licAiro the
public and the profession the nctunl
percentage of cures of cancer ac
complished iu the various clinics in
this country.
Mnny physicians today are skep
tical as to tho permanency ot the
cure of cancer. Tho majority of
people believe that cancer is a
'liln,l .lisenee." Hv this they ex-
,irrs.t n vn?ne notion of a general
disease present in many parts of
the hody, and for this reason they
nnturnlly conclude thnt its removal
from one plnce will have no effect
on the disease in other parts. Sur
geons do not always tell their pa
tients the nature of their disease,
but, whether they do or not, the
longer the patient 'lives in comfort
the more skeptical docs lie or bho
Curtailing Abuse of Initiative
To the Kditer:
It has been (piite generally agreed
that under the system of paid cir
culation of initiative and referendum
petitions two owl e.xit: The' sub
mission of many measures for which
there is no popular demand, and the
forging of signatures. To remove
these evils, I shall propose an initi
ative mcasuro prohibiting payment
for circulation of petitions, but pint
" . . .1 . I, ..1
ing no restriction upon the relit ot
the peo)lo to circulute potitums lor
any measure in which they lcol an
Or,. of Hip fundamental "liniOs(
of the Orogon system is to increase
the power of men and decrease tho
jMiwcr of money. I mil surprised,
there tore, to lind that there lire
some siucere ndvocatos of better
tfiiveininHiit who oiinose the lllllll of
prohibiting paid ciroulalion of nuti
tious. Most of those who oppose inv
bill acknowledge that it is rghl i"
jiriuciplc, but snv it will not work
satisfactorily in Vaclice. I contend
that if it is right in principle, it will
ultimately be adopted and will work-
in practice. i
An initiative etition is supoosed
to represent the desire of 8 per cent
of tho voters. It does no such thing.
H represents merely tho expenditure
of n certain amount of monev,
lossilily circulation of petitions
serves to notify about 10 per cent
of tho voters that tho measure is Do
ing proposed, but, if that is the end
to bo -allied, it certainly could bo
done more otfcctivelv by expending
the money iu the printing and circu
lation of copies of the bill which
voters coiild';ea'd, rnlhcr than iu se
curing sijjnatures p voters to u 'c-
the purchase ot the Hamil
become as to the grave nature of the
original disease. Kspccialli' is this
true in cases in which the opera
tion wo necessarily mutilating. The
doctor i then nsked: Wns it ncc
c.sary to do so much! Was the
dicae really cancer J In the con
trol of enncer. therefore. Dr. Hlood
good nrgues, wc shall havo to com
bat this, skepticism both in the rnnu
of the profession' nud among tho
jieople. Cancer can be cured and we
must bring it before the profession
and the public iii such a way Hint
they will believe it. The percent
age" of cures in tho fully developed
cancer is relatively small. In the
vcrv earlv cases it is nearly one
half. After dicusing the different
forms of cancer, the symptoms and
relative chance of recovery if op
erated on early, Dr. Hloodgood says
that the control of cancer is n mat
ter of education. The chie.f object
of th. American Society for the
Control of Cancer is to hurry on this
education, so that more lives may
be saved today. In its very early
stages cancer is an "economical dis
.no." nt lonst. relatively. The ox-
penbo of treatment is little, either
to the hospital or to the patient, and
the period of disability is. short. De
lay simply menus more expense,
more dnnger, greater discomforts
and decreasing probability of a cure

The adoption of my suggc-ted bill
would mnke the petition represent
public opinion, for tho number of
volunteer circulators would be in
proportion to tho extent of public
desire for the measure.
