'THE EIGHTH STREET CONTRACT
There is boforo the city council a
protest from the property owners of
Eighth street against the extension
of the time limit for tho completion
ot tho paving ot that thoroughfare.
The property owners ask, if tho
"Warren Construction company does
not complete 'tho work this year,
that the contract be cancelled. The
council has postponed decision on
this question twice and it will come
Tip for consideration atits meeting
The surprising part of it is that
there should be an hesitancy on the
part of the council. When the- War
ren Construction company bid on
this work and when it accepted tho
contract, it knew what the terms
were. Paving companies are not in
the habit of "going it blind," and
the Warren Construction company 1st
no exception to the rule. When the
property owners on Eighth street
asked for the paving, they did so be
cause they expected that it would be
placed according to the terms of
"whatever contract was signed, and
"they have reason to demand no more
nor no less. It is their property
that stands as security for this debt
and it is out of their pockets that
the money to liquidate it must come.
They are, therefore, tho ones to be
consulted not the Warren Con
struction company. If that contract
is not binding on the paving com
pany so far as the time limit is con-
cerned, then it is not binding on the!
property owners so far as forcing
them to consent to an extension. It
Is a well established principle cf
law that a contract cannot be bind
ing on one side and not on the other.
It the officials of this city ignore
the law, ride rough-shod over the
wishes of their constituents, permit
the paving company to do as it
pleases, how can they expect these
people to respect any law or au
thority? Thoro is growing up
throughout this nation n tondoncy
towards autocracy that has no placo
in our government. It Is estranging
tho pcoplo from those in authority.
It Is adding fuel to a lire ot discon
tent and dollanco ot all law and or
der that, It not chockudi will blaze
jlnto a fury that will wtpo out ot ex
ilslonco our very government. A city
is like the school tho very fountain
head ot government. It is closo to
the pcoplo. If our city otllcinls havoj
no respect Cr the law or tho rights
of tho people, It croatca a resent
ment that Increases as tlmo passes
and other transgressions are com
mitted. There Is not an anarchist
or a bolshevist in tho world who
hns not, at somo tlmo In his llfo, had
a real grievance, which, It given the
consideration that individual had
reason to expect from those In nu-
thourity, would have been removed
and he would liavo remained a sup
portor of the constituted govern
ment. The time has como, when Klamath
Falls must not Join tho brigade of
autocratic officials. Tho pcoplo on
eighth street have tho right to ask
for cithor the completion of tho con
tract or its cancellation. Tho coun
cil should not have extended tho
contract of Esplanade and otuor
streets. And it should not now ex
tend tho time limit on Eighth street
over tho protest of theso who havol
to foot the bill. Let us have tho
rulo of tho people hero and not tho
dictation ot private Interests.
SERVICE MAN SAYS LEfllON IS
PARIS, Oct. 1. (By the Associ
ated Press), When President Poln-
caire leaves the Elysees palace, tho
French White House, four months
hence to make way for a new chief
executive of the republic, he will, j
like a great many nioro ordinary cit- I
izens, be, obliged to grspple with the
difficult lodging problem.
When be was elected president he
had four domiciles, his aparentment
in Paris which he gave up at once,
his villa at Sampigny, the old fam
ily homestead at Jfubecourt and a
s in-all house near Bar le Due, The
Sampigny villa was completely
wrecked by the German artillery fir
ing from the Camp ot tho Romans
near Saint Mihiel, the homstead at
Nubecourt was demolished by the
explosion of any army motor truck
loaded with gasoline, while a bomb
from a German airplane fell full
Into the center of the hoiibe at Bar
le Due and left nothing standing!
but rigged walls. "
Consequnently the next e-presi-dant
will have to go house hunting
along with thousands of other cit!-'
z-3ns, running the same small chance'
of finding a suitable abiding place.!
Editor ot Tho Herald, City.
Sir: In tho Klamath Record,
dated October 24, 1918, thoro la an
artlclu on tho llrst pago headed "lllg
Reclamation Project on Lvko." Tho
writer of tho article dllntoa nt length
upon tho blessings and bonolHs to'
bo dorlvod from this wonderful rec
lamation schunui and slates that If
tho members of tho American Legion
"only understood" tho proposition
they would withdraw their objec
tions and permit the lease to stand.
It then says: "Tho lands will bo;
cut up Into farm units and sold and
It Is the expectation of thoso Inter-1
estod that tho price when reclaimed
and Irrigated would bo considerably'
less than would bo tho case if tho j
government undertook to reclaim
tho government land ulouo, as has'
boon suggested in tho protest."
Tho one who wroto that nrllclo Is
clearly a traitor to tho ox-sorvlco
man, and if his name Is learned It I
should bo reported to tho Legion. I
Tho Idea of telling tho people that
these lands will bo cut up into farm
units and soldi Wo say, whonT At
tho end of tho thlrty-yoar leaso to!
Brown and Doak.T Tho hired writer
ot tho pitlabloexucso of' an article1
above montlonol will have been In'
ills grave and his chlldron will bo(
too old at that tlmo to make i.etlle-.
monton theso lands.
Nowhoro In this article does, tho
writer Inform tho public that thoso i
leases run for a period of thirty i
years. Tiat Is considerately with
held from thein-, presumably in nc
cordnnco with the pattern bet by
some of tho departments of our gov
Only 17 per cent of the total land
area of Klamath county Is on tho
tax rolls for taxation. Should these
lnfnmous leases continue tho 10,000 i
acres of government land embraced
in them will continue for a period ot
thirty years to bo exempt from taxa
tion. If the plan of the service men
Is adopted they will bo en tho tax
rolls not later than four years from
date. We say that it is the duty ot
the county officials to tako this mat
tor up with our congressmen so that
these lands can be taxed and thus
rolio'o tho already overburdened i
taxpayer of? Klamath county. j
The heftier mentioned In tho nrtl- j
cle went upon the lands when they
were withdrawn and should he havo
difficulty it is clearly his own fault,!
as ho violated the law when ho wont'
upon tho land in tho first placo. j
Furthermore, 'ho is not a poor man
and does not need tho land as do1
the men who wore tho uniform.
If some of tlio officials of the
present administration would be
more considerate of tho average citl-'
zen instead of the land speculator '
and monopolies, then indead, some!
constructive scheme could be adopt-1
ed th 1 1 would dispose of these lands'
in the Interests of all the people '
those who wore the uniform and tho

TIFLIS, Armenia, Sept. 15, via
Paris, Oct. 2. Turkish Armenian
refugees, whose daughters were
saved from death for a life of slav
ery In Turkish harems, havo 'ap
pealed to tho American Red Cross
for aid in obtaining their freedom.
It is estimated by officials of the
Armenian government that 30,000
girls are thus held in slavery. An
executive committee to arrange tho
plans for their- liberation has been
named and will start work at once.
Theso girls, daughters of refugees
from tho Van and Bitlis regions, dis
appeared during the massacres of
1918. Nothing was heard of thorn
for months and it was belloved they
had b'een slain by the Turks.
Recently pitiful appeals for .lib
eration have been coming from them
from tho Turkish harems of Ana
tolia and European Turkey. Most
of tho girls declare they have not
changed their religion.
Colonel Haskell, high commission
er of he allies to Armenia, has been
appealed to for military aid. No
definite answer has yet beon glvon
but ho is hopeful of being able to
offer a show of force as a hack
ground for diplomatic negotiations.
The American Red Cross has been
asked for financial backing neces
sary for the work of liberating the
hcikI for three months
