FULL LEASED WIRE TEiJEGRAPH REPORT
Pledging business men his moral support to get the city coun
cil to pass the ordinance for public ownership of the water
works, Mayor Lachmund turns around and vetoes the measure.
He gives no new reasons, and there is no proposal to do anything
for the solution of the water problem at the Capital City. The
favorable opinion that has been created over the state that at last
the city was going to assume some responsibility in the matter
is knocked in the head, and the hopes of the progressive
elements tumbled in the mire. Elected as a progressive, and
pledged to public ownership, the mayor joins the forces of the
reactionaries. Ever. Governor West had expressed his approv
al of the city council in passing the ordinance authorizing the
purchase of the plant. He expressed the hope that they might
now be in shape to go forward and solve the problem of pure
water in the interest of the city and the state. The same men
who went into office as progressives, and on a platform of pub
lic ownership, will in the end compel this city to pay a great
deal more for the same property. The water company has in
creased at least $100,000 in value since the ngotiations for public
ownership were taken up by the city. It was offered the city at
a bargain, as were Fairmount Park and the North Mill creek
water power, and, like them, is lost to the city. The effect is de
pressing on business and property values. Men who have in
vested here in business property will be some time realizing.
The action of the people in voting the $400,000 bond issue and
of the city council in passing the ordinance have all been
knocked in the head by a veto that means a serious setback to
the development of the city. One defeat of this kind carries
others in its wake. There is no confidence among any respect
able element of business men in a forward movement with such
obstacles to contend with in the city government. With the tax
limit reached, no confidence on the part of the people to secure
bond issues lor public improvements, .with a revenue measure
that would have added materially to the fixed income of the city,
more and more will join the ranks of the insurgents for the
overthrow of the administration.
An eight-inch sewer on Asylum avenue is about the size of
some men's minds.
The angel chorus of mossbackism is again singing: "Glory to
God in the highest. We have prevented progress."
President Taft is much more highly thought of in the coun
try at large than he was a year ago. His fearless champion
ship of so progressive an idea as reciprocity between this
country and Canada shows him a big man, almost a statesman.
He is too big a man for a whole lot of Republicans, who shut
their eyes, stick their heads in the sand and kick up a dust about
protection. Taft may be defeated by this class of non-progressives,
but the country has outgrown ironclad protection. It de
mands' greater commercial freedom, and is going to get it. A
business man at Salem bought a lot of creamery butter and sent
it to Vancouver, B. C, where there is a tariff of four cents a
pound on butter. The consumer pays that tax on butter, as he
does on all other necessities. The tariff on Canadian butter is
still higher when sent to this country, and what sense is there in
both countries taxing such an article? The people of Canada
and the United States have identical interests. The people con
sume the same things. Canada is the younger country and the
feebler'as a producer. If we cannot compete with such a coun
try, what do we amount to? The congressmen and senators
from Oregon will probably be lined up against President Taft
on this issue in blind obedience to local interests and ignorant
and easily prejudiced voters will be found to vote against reci
procity. But it is right. It spells progress. It takes courage
to fight for it, and Taft is shown a great big man by his fight to
ALLEGED MORAL REFORM.
Fortland newspapers supported one man for mayor and then
at the primary the people nominated some one else. Moral: If
you want the people to have confidence in you get the reform
Portland newspapers to fight you. Was their support of Lom
bard dictated to them by the interests? Have they so long al
lowed the financial dictators of that city to control their poli
cies that they can no longer got credit for a disinterested opin
ion on any important public matter? the Simon administration
has been made up of commissions of the high and mighty. But
are they unselfish in dealing with public matters? Is not the big
financier as apt to graft as the middle class and poor man? Are
not the big fortunes founded on on graft and special privilege,
and inheritance and accidental acquirements and unearned incre
ments and do they not approach every man on the theory that
he has a price? Have the big interests represented in the Simon
administration purified public morals and given the city a busi
ness administration? Do not certain big Portland newspapers
Btand in with the big interests that know neither politics, princi
ples nor religion, and worship only the dollar, whether it is
tainted or not? Salem is full of people who take corupt and
crooked dollar-chasing publications in preference to good,
straight, honest, home newspapers, whose payroll helps make
make it possible for fifty families to maintain homes in comfort.

LANGIOROIS GRACE OF THE

PLAYFULNESS OF A KITTEN.
Primitive man spoke in metaphor
almost entirely, and the limited mode
of expression was amplified by ges
ture, illustrating the thought he
wished to convey. The metaphor has
been supplanted by words suggestive
of thought, but the primal instinct is
so strongly grounded in us that the
gesture still continues to hold sway.
We understand often more by a ges
ture than by the spoken word. Ruth
St. Denis, who Is appearing this sea
son in a combination of her marvel
ous Hindoo and splendid Egyptian
dances, has brought the gestures
within such splendid control that her
arms alone can convey a story. They
are considered by the artist of such
Inestimable value in her work that
she carries a large amount of Insur
ance to protect her in case of their
The arm movements of Miss St.
Denis are so beautiful, so perfectly
under control and so expressive that
they have been praised and admired
by all who have seen hers. In her
dance of the cobra or snake charmer,
they are marvelously used. Sinuous,
grasping, darting, recoiling, they
curve about the body of the dancer,
the two green eyes peering magllnant
ly at the spectator, while in the In
cense Dance they seem to invoke all
the beautiful things in the world
with their soft movements of bene
diction. The arms of Miss St. Denis are
long and supple, rounded and soft,
tapering to the finest of points at the
end of the long, artistic fingers. The
illustrations show the movements of
the arms in graduation. No. 1 dem
onstrates the beginning of the move
ment, the first stir of the muscles as
the arm leaves the side then gradu
ally It rises and we see it raised
slightly with bended elbow and palm
dropped into the graceful curved
line, then lifts the palm and straight
ens the arm except for a slight grace
ful curve at the elbow which gradu
ally straightens as the hand raises,
then the palm lowers gradually as
in the last two illustrations until it
reaches repose at the straight angle
from the body.
The whole movement of the arms
is made so gracefully and gently that
the movement is scarcely perceived,
it is beauteous motion In the highest
terms, as the arms of Miss St. Denis
are the most beautiful in the world.

The mayor's vets Monday evening
was one of the most commendable of
ficial acts performed in, the history of
the city of Salem. It comports favor
ably with his previous record on vital
questions pertaining to the city wel
fare. The taxpayers are realizing
their best Interests are safely guard
ed from despoil of the "third house."
Hl9 keen sagacity and courageous de
fiance, has made them set up and
take notice. The mayor's attitude is
Justifiable in the estimation of the
majority of the taxpayers. The
franchise obtained off the city by the
Salem Water Co. has a provision veTy
explicit, to the effect, it agrees to
furnish clear and wholesome water
in sufficient supply for the adequate
needs of the city .which provlsinn the
mayor Insists the council is derelict
in not forcing the water company to
comply with. He also maintains a
large area of the city is laid with
pipe too small to furnish water suffi
cient ta irrigate the lawns and fur
nish ample fire protection.
His action is In harmony with the
findings of the majority of the water
committee, who have gone into a
very thorough investigation of the
condition of the plant, who unlvesltat-
ingly pronounce the price demanded
extortionate and unjustifiable. The
mayor has not been asleep, he has
felt the public pulse and is clearly
aware of the concensus of opinion
prevalent, notwithstanding the vitu
peration and malicious statements of
the "third h:use ' organ.
D. W. FISHER,
By Authority of "Salem Gimlet
The School Board.
Ed. Journal: I see that the school
board of this district has decided
that the people of North Salem can't
have a school house this year, ,1s it
because the board has erected that
disgrace of a shanty for the surplus
pupus, or because the board is try'
ing to punish the people of Highland
for asking their right? I voted for
bonds for the enlargement of the
high school because we were told by
tne board that the district needed It
but now it turns out that the high
school enrollment is less than a year
ago. Why is this decrease? The city
has certainly continued to grow dur
ing the past year, for there are about
500 new houses in the district with
less vacant ones than ever before
The policy of the school has been to
discourage attendance Instead of the
opposite. This is holding down the
attendance in the high school, but
Decause a few fadlsta want gymna
stums and other "extras" the build
ing must be enlarged. Thousands of
dollars are being wasted tearing
down and reconstructing a splendid
building just to please a few, but the
buildings ordered by the taxpayers in
iiignianu and East Salem are re
fused. Why can't the people have
wnat tney vote for, and why must
they have Indebtedness heaped upon
them by the board for what is not

Primitive men did not need Cas
carets. They lived outdoors, ate
plenty of fruit, and all of their food
was coarse. We modern people are
different. We exercise too little, eat
little fruit, and our food is too fine,
We can't have the bowels clogged
up and keep well. It means that the
food retained there decays. The de
cay creates poisons. And those poi
sons are sucked into the blood
through the very ducts Intended to
suck In the nutriment. So we must
make our choice. We must live, to
an extent, like the primitive man,
else we must eat Cascarets.
Cascarets do what the right food
would do, what plenty of exercise
does. The effect Is as natural from
one as the other. The question is
one of convenience. If you choose
