not look like a waste of money?
WE have contracted with one of the largest coffee roasters on the Pacific coast for
20 000 lbs. of coffee for the coming year. This is probably the largest contract
ever placed by a dealer in the state outside of the City of Portland. By placing
such an order as this we have been able to get some exceptional values and we are goin-
to give the people the benefit. If this coffee was put up in cans and labeled, it would
cost at least $1200.00 additional and we see no reason why the consumer should pay this
in order to advertise some manufacturer.

EL PASO ENGINEER
PRAISES HIGHWAY
Herbert Nunn, formerly city engin
eer of the city of El Paso, Texas, who
was recently in this city with Mrs.
Nunn, Iran the greatest praise for the
Columbia highway.
"It was a revelation to me, "he Raid,
lifter having seen the great boulevard.
"1 have Been the roads or caiitornia,
niul have built many miles of highway
in Texas and Mexico, but I have never
seen anything like your hiKhway here. '
If l.oa Angelea had ouch a drive it
would in sen an immediate increase of
100,000 in her population.
"As un engineer, I paid particular
uttentinn to the construction, and from
an enigneering atandpoint, it is won
derful. "1 waa Impressed with the economy
of the construction. The location iB
ideal, and in laying out the road Engin
eer Lancaster hag combined economy
of construction and scenic advantage.
Nothing haa been lost.
"then there ia the beauty of the
bridges, wall work and culverts, both
from an architectural and utilitarian
standpoint. Everything fits into the
general plan. There is economy and
tttrength. It iB a great work."
In Mr. Nunn's opinion, the road
should be completed with a hard sur
face next season.
"It would be a great mistake," he
said, "and poor economy to macadam
ize it. Tho cost of maintenance would
far exceed the interest on the money
required to lay a pavement. There
would also be a loss in converting ihe
macadam surface into u base for the
pavement, a much of it would have to
bt thrown away. It has been my ex
perience tli ut this loss ranges from 1!
to f)() per cent. Besides, a base formed
from an old macadam is net so satis
factory as the bate laid ut tho time of
paving.
"1 should say that the pavement
should be at least 18 feet wide. If you
arc only going to have a width of lt
feet, it might as well lu only 12 feet
for traffic purposes.
"Now as to the kind of pavement, it
should be that which has proved to he
the best on your city streets. It is a
fact not generally appreciated that a
country road requires a better pave
ment than a city street. The reason
for this is that the country road hus to
sustuin a heavier loud without the curb
protection given a street. In addition,
the country road has not the drninafce
and does not receive tho constant main
tenance of the street."
Randier Discusses Library Board
November 2!!, I'.UI.
Editor Glacier As one who for years
has been a silent observer and ban kept
out of the newspapers, 1 ask space to
make a few remarks relative to o ir i
library. 1 havo recently read a copy of
the contract between the City of Hood
liiver and the county concerning the
management of the library, and it
stems to mo that the provision for six
representatives from the city (appoint
ed by the city council) and only I hive
from thu county, composed of the
county court is not equitnle. It would
seem that this board should consist of
equal numbers from the city and Co.
As the matter now stands it would be
possible for our county court to be a
hopeless minority.
The vote just given Mr. lluwkcs for
reelection as county commissioner in
dicates very conclusively that a large
majority of the voters of this county
have confidence in the court. Why not
give the court, which represents the
county, the same representation as Use
city has. Kaneheff

Massee Discusses Road Master
The following is a copy of a letter
written by F. A. Massee to ti e com
mittee recently appointed to conduct a
campaign for a roadniaster :
Good Honda Committee :
Gentlemen: 1 received your postal
relative to the appointment of a road
muster. I think it a very good idea to
have one, providing it doesn't cost too
much. We have under our present sys
tem of work for a roadniaster but CO to
90 days' work, therefore it wouldn't
pav to hire a man tiy the year at five
per cent, of $45,000. because, if that
is the amount that the county is rais
ing for road purposes, but about 50 per
cent of it is spent on the road.
Road tools, machinery, lumber, cul
vert;", bridges, repair bills of the same,
and salary of the road supervisors, and
ninny other expenses usually come out
of this amount. Therefore, you have
not very much left to build roads with,
and if you especially hire a high sal
aried engineer for the term of one
year.
We have men here in our valley that
are taxpayers and have the ability to
run a level and superintend a rock
ci usher and road grader and give a uni
form system of road building, who do
not depend wholly on a salary and
could he hired for such work as the
county court saw lit for their service.
It won't pay to hire a road master un
less we have $100,000 or more to spend
on the roads.
I have had six years' experience in
Hood Kiver county building roads and
realize what it is to have good roads
and how soon our road supervisors can
I spend what money they are allowed to
ulraw from the county treasury.
I Personally, 1 am in favor of a much
I lamer mad tax. What we are now ex
pending is barely keeping our roads in
repair and they are in a very bad condi
tion, generally speaking.
If we should spend a much larger
1 J I A I II
sum on the roaus anu nave mem wen
improved we would be able to haul
perhaps twice the amount with, the
same power we are using now. We
would lessen the cost of transportation
and we would all be well repaid for the
money expended, whereas we are now
operating under the most expensive
system. F. A. Massee.

SINNOTT INVESTIGATES
VETERAN'S CONDITION
Representative in Congress N. J.
Sinnott was in the city Saturday to
visit with friends and to investigate
the condition of Thomas Edwin Kel
logg, an aged Civil war veteran, who
has asked for an increase in pension.
Mr. Sinnott made the journey at the
request of members of Canby Post, G.
A. R. "1 found Mr. Kellogg in a very
bad condition," said Mr. Sinnott. "He
is aged and deserves assistance."
Mr. Sinnott, who has been in Wash
ington attending sessions of congress
almost continuously for the past two
years, states that he rgreta that he has
not had time to visit his constituents.
"1 really think," he said, "that a
congressman should spend at least
three months of the year visiting his
constituents. In order to secure legis
lation that is needed one has to come
in personal contact with the people to
be affected. In all the homestead bills
that 1 have introduced, I secured my
points from suggestions made to me."
While here Mr. Sinnott attended the
banquet tendered the members of Group
No. 1 of the State Bankers Association
ami responded to a toast.
LOCAL BANKERS HOSTS SATURDAY
(Continued From Page One)
1M.M.
tf
The federal reserve board states that
at the present time it is unwilling1 to
define specifically what is or what is
not commercial paper, because of the
variety of forma under which it is is
sued and the variety of purposes for
which it is issued in various parts of
the country. It has, therefore, decided
that single name and double name pa
per will for the present at least be
eligible for rediscount with the federal
reserve banks. This is not in accord
ance with the European idea of .dis
countable paper, but harmonizes with
the present American practice so gen
erally prevalent of accepting one name
paper as a bankable security.
After January 15, 1915, no paper
shall be rediscounted or purchased by
any federal reserve bank which does
not hear unon its face or by endorse
ment evidence that it is eligible for
rediscount under the terms of the ; law
and the rules and regulations pre
scribed by the federal reserve board.
Criticisms regarding the law such as
1 have mentioned should not be made
with any intent to confuse or embar
rass those responsible for its adminis
tration, nor those whom it is intended
to benefit; but the suggestion of them
illustrates the necessity of a thorough
and comprehensive interpretation of
many provisions of the law by the fed
eral reserve board, and shows the great
repsonsibility resting upon it.
In the law we have given to us a
great piece of financial legislation, rad
ically changing our system oi nnances,
imposing new duties upon us, making
possible new avenues of trade and com
merce, and opening the way for this
country to assume its place among the
world's financial Dowers. In one enact
ment there is created an association of
7548 individual members, creating I
new caDital of $109,898,902. with rami
fkations reaching to every part of the
country, controlling the reserves, the
discount rate, our foreign finances, and
our gold supply, and whose importance
and influence cannot yet be estimated.
It remodels our national banks; it es
tablishes a new market for our govern
ment bonds : it standardizes commercial
Dflne'r and makes a new and broader
market for it. It creates a national
clearing house for exchange. It creates
a bank for banks, which, if properly
regulated and developed, will create a
continuous mart for rediscounts at all
events and at all times.
It offers a reserve note as a medium
of circulation, which may ultimately
supplant our varied forms of circula
tion at present in use.
It provides for a fiscal agent for the
government. It affords a domestic
market for gold coin and bullion, and a
reliable agency for the transfer of coin.
bullion, and credits to and from for
eign countries.
Its powers and posibliities are great
and magnificent, and it should have our
heartiest cooperation and sincere benediction.
A Bankers' Convention Story
The following story was told at the
bankers' convention last Saturday:
"A well dressed citizen who had ab
sorbed too much gasoline to take a
clear view of passing events, rambled
down in front of the bank, where he
saw several people enter the building
clutching a wad of money.
"For a moment the razzled party hx-
edly watched the procession, and then
taking a ten-spot from his pocket, he
joined the jubilee. Inside, however, he
round the line rather long and the wait
a trirla tiresome.
" 'Shay, old pal,' said the esteemed
citizen, addressing the man ahead of
him, 'zhey shertainly keep ush waitin'
long time, doan zhey?'
" 'Yes,' answered the other. 'I don't
think I ever saw quite so many here at
one time.'
S " 'Shay, old pal,' said the esteemed
citizen again, glancing toward the lone
teller methodically working behind the
counter, 'do you know whatcher trouble
here?'
" 'No,' indulgently rejoined the man
ahead, 'I cant' say that 1 do.'
" 'Zatch an easy one,' returned th
hypnotized party. 'Zhey ain't got nuff
bartenders.'"
Surprises Many
in Hood River
The quick action of simple buckthonC
bark, glycerine, etc., as mixed in Aide-i-ka,
the remedy which became famous
by curing appendicitis, is surprising
Hood River people. Many have found
that this simple remedy drains so much
foul matter from the system that a
single dose relieves constipation, sour
stomach and gas on the stomach almost
immediately. Alder-i-ka is the most
thorough bowel cleanser ever sold. C.
