ST. JOHNS SHOULD BRACE UP
For its own sake the admin
istnition of the city of St.
Johns should come together.
A few mouths ago 110 section
of the state .seemed to have
such an outlook immediately
ahead of it. There was every
thing in prospect in the way
of improvement, and it looked
as though St. Johns would
surely double its population in
the course of a year. While
every condition was favorable
nud while the eyes of many
prospective investors were
turned in that direction the
city election was held. Since
then everything has been topsy-turvy.
For their own sake the peo
ple of St. Johns should force
the jarriug factious of the city
government to come together,
adjust their differences and
start the government out in a
businesslike fashion. So long
as these squabbles continue
much harm is being done to
the town and every property
owner in it, and if the trouble
continues very much longer it
may be very hard to repair
the damage which has been
and will be done.
There nre always those who like to
have n rough house if they are
near enough to the edge to escape
the flying bricks.

that he had always desired to see

in the matter.

Mr. Jones, with a daughter and
her girl friend, endeavored to make
a crossing which is dangerous to
those whose senses are perfect.
