THE FLAT 8ALARY DILL.
The Marlon count) members and

i "we" have for tho constitution?
' Tho Journal says, without hesita
tion, that ' this is quibble nnd dema
gogy of the most dnugerous character,
and the Democrats were nil guilty of
it as tho Republicans.
Senator Pierce, of Umntllln, ox
prosssd tho sentiment or tho honest
Republicans in tho senato, when ho
said ho was ready to vote for flat sal.
I arloa now, or next year or In 1907, a9

tional now as It would be noxt yoar or
In 1907. In that ho was right, and
thoso who resortod to technicalities
to kill tho bill havo a day of reckon
ing ahead of thorn. '
Almost nny flat salary bill is loss
unconstitutional than tho prosent ays
torn, which Is in dlroct, flat contradic
tion nnd violation of Uie terms of tho
salary clause of the constitution,
which says tho stato officials shall re

I havo ,boen thinking that it

fruit growers, In this city, to hold a
mooting soon as thoro aro many
quostlons of much lntorest to the
practical fruit growors thnt might bo
dlscusnod vory profitably by th-m.
Thoro aro othor quostlons concerning
fruit growing asldo from tho disposal

will admit of much lntolllgont discus
sion and in an Intorchnnge of vlows
on theso subjects wo can nil gain
much valuable Information.
If we can profit from the oxpor
lenco and observation of other fruit
growers, we cortalnly aro galnors to
that oxtont, rather than to go
through the ejcporlonce ourselves. The
past soison has boon a vory profltablo
ono to the fruit growers gonornlly,
and especially to thoso who have
made propor effort and application to
their business nnd I think that we can
well afford the tlmo to como togethor
and discuss questions that lnterost all
of us, and from isuch discussion ve
would dorlvo much benefit, If from no
other fcaturo than from a social
stand point. Wo can woll afford, to
havo thoso moctlngs and through 'sor
clal Interchange!! bocomo bottor ac

solflsh and llvo ontlroly for ounaolvos,
but meet togethor and mlnglo with
our frlonds and nolghbors and make
tho most of life. Not wishing to cast
aany bouquota at mysolf I will von
turo tho assortlon that tho fruit
growora gonorally speaking, aro
about as lntolllgont e. clans of cltlzons
as we havo, and thoro is no rooson
why whon we hold a mooting and
como togothor, that by tho discussion
of tho questions that intorost thorn
thoy should make the meetings of
groat lntorest to all present. The
man who haa theonorgy and determ

for his offorts as there- Is no more
The great Lord evidently Intended
that man should through either phy

the mucosas of tho fruit growers and

the advisability of holding the meet
