What are we going to do about street lights for Hillsboro after
Sept. 12 ? On Sept. 1 2 the present contract with the Hillsboro Light
& Fuel Co. expires and so far the Village Council and the Light Co.
have not been able to arrive at an agreement for the furnishing of
street lights even temporarily.
Members of the Light Committee of Council tell us that they
have offered to pay the Light Co. $300 a month for street lights
until some definite action is taken ; that in the present condition of
the town's finances that is all the town can afford to pay and that
the Light Co. refuses to furnish the lights at that price ; that if
this proposition is not accepted the town will be in darkness, so far
as street lights are concerned, after Sept. 12.
Mr. Beecher, manager of the Light Co., tells us that he has
offered to continue to furnish the street lights for the village from
month to month under the terms of the old contract ; that to fur
nish light for $300 a month would be furnishing it at much less than
cost and that while he would regret very much cutting off the lights
that the proposition of the Light Committee is one that the Company
could not possibly consider, especially on a month to month basis.
Under the contract which expires Sept. 12, the town has been
paying $600 a month for light for the streets. This contract has
been running for ten years.
The problem for street lights for Hillsboro can no longer be
evaded. The time for action has come. What are we going to do ?
It is a question of great importance to every citizen and no citizen
should be afraid to take a decided stand in the matter.
Several months ago we advocated that the Hillsboro Business
Men's Association take up the question and presented the matter
at a meeting of the Association and urged investigation. A com
mittee was appointed for that purpose, but if anything was done
we have never heard of it.
There is but one thing to do in this matter and that is the best
thing for the town. Personal friendships and personal emnities
should not enter into the question. Further we think it is too big
and too intricate a problem to expect every citizen to secure infor
mation and data for himself so that he will have enough knowledge
to form a sensible opinion. Information and data should be secured
by an organization representing the interests of the town, which in
our opinion is the Business Mens Association, and then furnished
to the people. If this was done then the people would know what
should be done.
Let us consider the problem from an unprejudiced standpoint
first taking those facts upon which we can all agree.
1. A town the size of Hillsboro must have its streets well
2. This should be done in the cheapest way, commensuate
with good service.
3. Hillsboro can and must raise the money to pay for this
Thus it can be seen that there is only one thing to decide to
solve that problem and that is how can the street lightiug be most
economically secured ?
Three ways to secure the lights are open as we understand it.
1. Contract with a private concern whereby the company fur
nishes the light and furnishes everything to provide the light, just
as has been done in the past.
2. The town can build and operate its own plant.
3. The town can purchase current at a certain price from a
private concern and furnish the lamps, etc., and keep them in
As we understand the situation here only one private concern
has applied for the contract, the Hillsboro Light & Fuel Co. ; that
their proposition is to furnish light at a reduction of practically
twenty-five per cent, from the present contract. Such a contract
Council has refused to make, saying that the town can not afford
to pay that much for light and claiming they have data to prove
that the amount asked is unreasonable.
A deadlock has thus arisen between Council and the Light Co.
and the people now face the problem of unlighted streets.
An appraisement is now being made of the Hillsboro Light &
Fuel Co. by the Public Utilities Commission. It is believed by
Council that with the data secured from this appraisement it will
be possible to know what should be done and to do it. But this
appraisement will not be completed for months. Must Hillsboro
be in darkness for that length of time ? We do not believe that we
can afford to be neither do we believe that the Light Co. can afford
to ask an unreasonable price for its services during that time.
An unfortunate situation has arisen and one which must be
solved quickly, even if only temporarily.
What are the people of Hillsboro going to do about it ?
Warren G. Harding says that to restore the rule of the state
to the people is the great issue in Ohio this year and he is endeav
oring to pose as a great advocate of that principle. In 1912 Hard
ing was one of the Taft Leaders in the primary fight between Taft
and Roosevelt, when Roosevelt carried the state by over 100,000.
The people having expressed their wish to have the delegates from
Ohio vote for Roosevelt, Harding led the fight in the State conven
tion for Taft, and through political manipulations managed to se
cure the six delegates at large from Ohio for Taft and he was one
of them. At the Chicago Convention he placed Taft in nomination
and voted for him. By a majority of 100,000 the Republicans of
Ohio had said they wanted .Roosevelt and Harding who would now
have you think he was an ardent believer Jin the people ruling
voted for Taft. In this instance he thwarted the wish of the peo
ple so emphatically expressed and if elected United States Sena
tor he will in the same manner carry out the wish of the people.

TALE ANGERED A MAN.
Began Well, and Really Got Quite In

You pick up eomething to read in
the train and you come across a story
something like this:
"Are you a bravo man?"
"Smith stared and looked at tho
speaker, who was clearly a French
man. We say ''clearly a Frenchman,"
because he shrugged his shoulders
ten or fifteen times a minute, and if
that isn't clear enough for a short
story writer, nothing is.
Smith being stranded In Paris, the
question Interested him, as there
might bo a franc or two In sight.
"Am I bravo?" repeated Smith,
"Well, I'm moderately brave at five
francs, and for twenty I'm as bravo as
"Good," said the stranger. "Twenty
francs for you. And le boxe can you
use your fists?"
"Surest thing you know," said
Smith. "1 used to box with Jef
fries." "You must ask no questions. Just
go into a house I shall point out to
you. Defend yourself If attacked."
By that time you are becoming In
terested. Here, you think, Is a story
of the old-fashioned romantic kind.
Good. Nothing' about eugenics, suf
frage, psychology. All mystery, fight
ing, adventure love, probably.
"Righto," says Smith, "give me the
20 francs and show me tho house."
The mysterious stranger leads Smith
to a gloomy house, which, of course,
has "something sinister about It."
"Enter. Fight If you are attacked.
"Smith enters the dark hallway.
Sounds of barbaric music are heard
from behind hangings of oriental
splendor. (Getting exciting now. It's
about this point that you become In

Pushing aside these hangings of
oriental splendor, Smith walks boldly
Into a big hall. A sultan of oriental
ferocity Is on a throne, a sultana of
oriental beauty by his side. Dancing
girls of oriental freedom are before
him. Black slaves (probably "gigantic
Nubians") stand behind him. Tho sul
tana throws Smith a bulbul blossom.
"Oft with the Giaour's head" roars the
sultan. Smith clinches with the gi
gantic Nubians. Somo scrap! Whir
roo! Of course, "after a gallant fight,"
Smith is borne under and the scimi
tar is about to disconnect his head
from the rest of his system, when the
mysterious Frenchman enters and

Woman Soon to Be Bald.
The future Eve -will be bald. So
says Dr. Brolg in the Bulletins Medical
"In the 30 'years of my practice,"
says Dr. Brolg, "I can say as a result
of close observation that the physique
of the new generation of women Is
slowly but surely undergoing a change.
The breast is sinking in, the shoulders
becoming more stooped, cold feet are
becoming a normal manifestation, the
hands are showing tendency toward a
violet or purplish color, the face Is
becoming smaller, deep wrinkles in
the forehead more frequent, and tho
digestion getting worse. And that is
not all; bloodlessness Is affecting the
face and skull. The elasticity of the
pores is decreasing, and the nose is
developing more and more.
