REVISE THE CITY BUDGET.
The people of Salem expect the city council to do a lot of
trimming on the city budget.
Some of the items are out of all proportion to the city's
needs, as for instance $6,500 for engineering.
With two good hospitals in the city, it is hard to see what
good result could be accomplished with a $1,500 city hospi
tal. It is ridiculous to keep a city physician at $16 per month
with duties as sanitary inspector to order a cleanup.
There should be a readjustment of the lighting system,
and provision for streamer lights at least during the holidays
and 4m occasions like the state fair and when the legislature
is in. .session.
Like most governments, the city is paying to much for extra-official
services and too little for real necessities.
COUNTY COURTS WILL GO SLOW.
-The -county court of Marioncounty and other counties will
do well to go slow in creating a large road fund.
Ijris a terrible temptation to a certain class to get busy
when there is a large fund piled up in the treasury.
The.present Marion county court will not levy a large gen
eral fund to hand out to communities that have a little pull.
As,fnearly as possible the money collected in each precinct
will toe tianded back to the precinct for road purposes.
The, .people locally under a good supervisor will get more
mm done for the money when they realize that they are
spending . .what they themselves have paid.
Jm p.epple in the various localities know better what they
need than does the average court or county road master.
Local self-government Is not altogether a dream and the
people are more intelligent than some give them credit for.
THE MASSACHUSETTS TOWN ELECTIONS,
Elections were held in about fifteen Bay Stale cities on
Tuesday,' Dec. 14, in which prohibition was involved.
One of the cities was Worcester ,the largest dry city in
the world, the special battle ground of prohibition.
Newton, Medford, Newburyport and Salem were conceded
to be "no-license" towns, while others were claimed by the

GOOD WORK AT FALLS CITY.
The Law and Order League did good work in securing
convictions of the blind pigs at Falls City,
Some of them were running poker games, slot machines
and dance halls and should have been prosecuted long ago.
On the rest of their cases in Polk county they fell down,
and the grand jury refused to find bills and cause costs,
