It ia astonishing to discover how little
Home people §eem to care for the sanitary
condition or the looks of their property.
At the meeting of the city council Mon
day evening Marshal W. I. Dailey read a
long list of names of people who in one
way or another are menacing public
health. Home had failed to connect
their property with the sewer, others
were not keeping their barns and sur
roundings in good condition and still
others were throwing vegetable matter
in the river and on the river banks.
A etate sanitary inspector has been
notified of the conditions here and it is
expected that an investigation will be
made in a few days that will result in
one of the most thorough cleanings that
Colfax has ever known. The matter
cannot be taken too seriously. Filth is
a menace to life and health. A little
care taken in the disposal of garbage
may result in the Having of hundreds of
dollars or even of human life. In dis
cussing the question at the Monday
evening's meeting one of the councilmen
stated that be believed the time would
come when it would be necessary for this
city to establish a garbage crematory.
There certainly is no more thorough way
of disposing of garbage.
All through the city the banks and
bed of the river are in an insanitary
and unsightly condition. To remove the
rubbish and litter from these places will
not only tend to improve health but will
better the looks of the town. To the
residents of the west side of the river
the sight at the prosent time is unpleas
ant to say the least It is also true
that everyone traveling on the Moscow
bTanch of the 0.-W. R. & N. gets this
view of the city and the impression is
Now is the time to take some action.
The city is willing to do its part. Every
citizen whose property abuts on the
fiver should not hesitate.
RUSSIA IGNORES OUR RIGHTS
Contrary to the provisions of the
trpaty of 1882 with Russia that country
is refusing to indorse passports of Arneri
can citizens who happen to be believers
in the Jewish faith. Russia has prom
ised to withdraw this religious examina
tion, but the promise has been made
This country has amoug its citizens
many of the Jewish faith who have oc
cupied the most distinguished positions,
not alone in commerce, but in nil the
professions, in the arts, in pubiic life and
in the held of philanthropy. American
Jews have sat in the United States senate,
on the bench of the highest courts in
many of the states and have been sent
as ministers and embasaudors to foreign
countries. Notwithstanding their high
character, the great positions which
they have attained, the number of gener
ations of distinguished American an
cestry there may be behind them and
the services which they have rendered
this country, they are denied by Russia
the privileges accorded other American
citizens and are discriminated against
solely on account of their religious be
lief. To stop this discrimination it has
been suggested that the treaty might
•*ell be denounced.
THEIR FIRST BOOK.
A vivid and elaborate picturing of the
wilderness responding to the genius of
western constructive civilization is de
picted in the beautiful book written by
Isabella Carpenter Kendall, entitled
"Ac-roes the Continent," a copy of which
came to the editor's desk Sunday morn
:ng. It is the first book of the Chicago,
Milwaukee and Puget Sound Railway,
and as a luxuriously designed and
printed volume descriptive of the won
derlands between the Mississippi and the
Pacifi? ocean it compels attention as a
superb work of art.
The text of this book is a concise, im
pressive descriptive story of a trip over
the entire line, and the reproduction of
photographs in colors are splendid ex
amples of engraving and printing art.
The principal towns along the line are
comprehensively described as weil as the
chief elements of railroad building that
have attracted world wide attention to
the Milwaukee road.
LEARNING TO VOTE.
Pomeroy had a city election last week
and the Standard hap the following to
aay of come of the newly enfranchieed
voters: "Women would reflect credit on
their ccx if they gave a little time to
studying our election laws and learning
how to vote and the rules to be observed
about the poling places. The greater
part of the erroneously marked ballots
in the recent city election were cast by
women. Again the lair cci seem to fail
to catch the idea of the Australian
ballot. This is a secret ballot, ladies.
All electioneering must be done before
you receive the official ballot, and none
at the polls. If you do not understand
the ballot or bow to make it out you
have no right to confer with anyone but
the election officers. We need not point
oit that it is rude for three or four
ladies to try to occupy the same booth
all at once. Nor does this conduce to
the secrecy of voting and the law con
templates that no other soul than the
individual voter himself shall know bow
he votes. Brush up on these points,
ladies; it may save you from getting an
election contested some day for irregu
