his denunciation of thoe who

calls for help.
"The Cnlvo. sighted us early Sun
day," said Captain Guntcr. "After
it had fooled around for n time a
boat was lowered. Then there wn
some more fouling around, finally
the boat was picked up. After that
the ship steamed nwqy. As for the
(ierainu sailors on the Bavaria, if it
had not been for their bravery we
should nut be here. They risked
their lives for us repeatedly."
Quuter could not account for the
lot. of his ship. All he knew was,
he said, that there was a crash nnd
the vosel broke in two. He did not
think there wan nn explosion.
"The wind wa blowing cighty-fiya

AuuM'M'un citizen. It freqtunitly luvotiu's his main
occupation. Tho Oregon system lias done much to oncoui'
iljjo the business. Under it all that' is necessary is pill
and hlatancy. There is no preliminary convention the
appeal is made direct to the people, and only their ver
dict can reduce swelled heads.
Apy one can run for office. Many do for the salary
involved. Rut few can he induced, to he candidates
simply from a motive of civic patriotism. Had the dink

cominir election, barring only those recalled, seeking vin
dication. But no sooner are these candidacies announced than
the council busies itself to place opposition in the field
The filing of two independent petitions by candidates for
the council cannot be construed other than as an attempt
to aid the present regime and prevent a change a devise
of the council itself.
"William finch, who has filed as a candidate in the
second ward against Colonel Sargent, after the latter had
been drafted against his wishes by business men to become
a candidate, is an open sympathizer with the present
council and a warm defender of its extravagance. Jle is
the candidate of the present regime.
Medfprd's financial condition must be much worse
than imagined, when one whose occupation is that o( a
professional assignee in bankruptcy, receiver in insolv
ency and auctioneer of financial wreckage is tempted to
seek pniiuc on ice. it makes one wonder whether there is
not an irresistible itching to auction off the city itself "on
the right-of-way opposite the Nash hotel" some sunny
,.. r. .
Rev. K. V. MacOullough, who announces his candidacy
in the third ward, has been in the state but six months.
He admits that he wants the salary Jle also wants pro
hibition. The joke of the campaign is the circulation of
this foe of the demon rum's petition by Councilman Mil
lar, hero of the Manhattan cafe liquor tricl, the object
being to divide Millar's opposition and permit the hitter's
re-eleetiou. The reverend
paw to pull the council's chestnuts out of the fire and is
actually injuring the cause ot good citizenship by his can
didacy. Those who have the interest of good government at
heart will vote the citizens'
practical and successlul business men pledged to economy
and efficiency, and induced to become candidates it the
request of a majority of the business. meno the city.

COWL FOR ILLS
Tho city council died Tuesday
night. In a long winded session oc
cupied by reading reports of depart
ment heads. Tho most important
happenings were tho reading of
Mayor I'urdtn's address, and the ap
proving of salary check's. Only one
of tho council Oeorgo Porter Is
certain of answering the next roll
call. Two retire, two fnco recallu,
and another strives for re-election.
The mayor's address la an admir
able piece of "on tho fence" writing.
Sly bits of stinging sarcasm In ref
erence, to the treatment accorded for
mer Myor Klfert were hurled at
the council. Tho mayor holds that
proper handling of delinquent as
sessments at the start would havo
eliminated the present tangle, and
urges a new systems of economy.
The purchaso of tho Hamilton
rauch is defended, and any reduction
In tho police forco Is decried. How
ever, the flro department might be
reduced from six men tho mayor
su)s. Some of thu council's woes
havo been Inherited, and some of
their own making tho report holds.
Mayor Purdln concludes by recom
mending "a curtailment of expeuso
If a system can be found."
Platform of It. W. MiuCullougli for
C'oiiiielliiuui for the Third Ward.
1. I believe wo should adopt a
new charter pluelng this city under
commission form of government.
2. While believing In economy
aud efficiency, l am convinced that
eflfclent men in offleo should receive
an adequate salary for service, Ono
of the worst features of economy is
to publish to tho community and
prospective Investors tho fact that
.Med ford Is so poor that Its offlclala
are obliged to servo without pay,
a. Cvery candidate for city elec
