ttntlon, It Is easy to understand why
this strenuous endeavor to provent

to the Jury.
Honest now. Is this attempt to

arc ilolnfi polities anything more than
a sclicnio to distract public attention
from tlio Inclllclency represented
tlio Territorial delay of the Judiciary
building construction, the speed with
which surveys nro being furnished tho

condition of the water system and tho

as cheap. From all appearances the
public Is paying, a mighty price for It
In some of tho Territorial depart
It Is ten to ono tho public will find
that the great excitement of the morn
ing' paper over tho "politics" being
done by the Supervisors Is a
repetltloh of tho'' Incident when the
lllght Honorable William C Achl Was
asked to call at tho Advertiser office
to discuss politics, nii'd when ho re

Siieaklng of efficiency. Tho appro
priation for the repair of tho Judiciary
building was rushed through the Leg
islature because work must bo start
ed on It Immediately or before. After
tho money was .appropriated and tho
belt road appropriation thereby com
plicated, thero was promise that tho
repair of tho building would begin
soon. After a long tlmo tenders wero
called for the structural Iron, to bo
opened- July 31st, about four months
lifter tho appropriation was passed.
Now the date for closing tho tenders
Is moved forward to November.
Where is tho efficiency in this situ
ation? The Judiciary building re
mains for four months more a men

Legislature or County government?
PLAY THE GAME.

Tlio Kclos lost tho gamo In moro
ways than one. With their "won't
play" attitude they showed that they
lacked tho spirit of truo sportsman
ship and can't stand the result of
playing a. gamo for all thero Is in It.
They proved that they lack self-control
becnuso of nn unwillingness to abide,
by the derision of tho umpire, and as
a consequence they prnctjcally break
their agreement with tho public, to
play tlio gamo let tho scoro bo what it'

WIPING OUT PROHIBITION FARGE.
That the prohibition wave which
spread over tho South a few years'ago
has spent Itself Is shown by tho
clamor arising In Southern states for,
the repeal of prohibition Inws. Ala

assembly recently adjourned, repeal

general assembly has convened in
Georgia, and Indications point to n

Malno adopted prohibition In 18G4;

1838, and again Is demanding tho re

laws for fit) years on her books. Tho
