J. O AyrCo,
November is pretty
wtll advanced. Our'
crop of Fall Suits is
the Gnest in our his
tory. Tho richest
plums drop first.
There is a dnsh and
stylo about our gar
ments that appeals
to rivory man who
suit In town. Coino in and see
shica flvo years ago at Salem, Oregon,
It Is not nocessnry to say before go
ing Into tho dotails of tho plan that
thoro Is great "need of substituting
sound business methods for tho nvor
ago partisan graft Tho iattor as
conducted In tho avorago Amorlcan
city would culmlnato In managlngs In
a mining. cmnp.
What are tho municipal probloms
common to nil cities? They aro not
political, hut absolutely relnto to col
looting and disbursing revonuoe, and
pollco regulations the grent atratn
coming upon any administration at
two points finance and vlco.
Tho collection of rovonuos, con
structing nnd mhlntalnlng st-odts,
sewors, etc.. funding debt, paying sal
arlos, erecting public buildings nnd
managing public sorvlco franchises
are as puroly a business mattor as
any otlior IniBlnoss matter on oarth.
In conducting largo business 'rans-
actions, as It necessarily must, a city
administration must cope with Uic
keonost Intollocta of tho community
wlthth o nggrogntc predatory olomont
of socloty and It Is folly to expect a
good rosult without a woll defined pro
gram.. For Ave yonrs this city has had tho
affairs of tho city government con
ducted on a strictly business basis.
Whether an nldorman has boon Re

on that platform.
It Is assumed thnt whoovor is elect

tho city three-fold. The nawar por
