sue of the Message State and
Nat it tin 1 le! ill lis also.
Vnndalia ami Mexico carried
the jail proposition liy a two
thirds' majority vote in each case.
It was by the rural vote that the
proposition lost out.
The olo for Single Tax in Au
drain eoiuity was 1 fur to -.;
against. Tor the jail proposition
tin re were U.7ti: votes; against
the proposil ion l.l'oo. It re
quired a two-thirds majority
vole to carry.
The Message completes its 13th
volume this week. The paper is
mere prosperous than ever tiath
foundations that cannot he
moved. We own our own build
ing and plant tree of debt and
are getting there. See us grow,
see us grow.
The Message is opposed to Ihe
repeal of the initiative and refer
cuJuui law. The law may neei
fixing a little, but the principle of
the law is all right. Amend it, if
need be, so that it will take a
l.iiL'er number of petitioners to
get a measure before the people
but don't cut the law out entirely
There mav come a time when the
people may need it.
Some want to repeal the initia
the and referendum law because
that thru it the Single Tax was
forced before the people. Well,
on the same ballot there were five
or mx other measures forced be
fore the people by the Legislature
and the people voted everyone of
them down, as they did the Single
Tax. If it were wrong to force a
vote on one of these measures it
was finally wrong to force a
vote on anv of them. Then
would you abolish the Legis
lat ure also?

No Guess Work
Men feel differently about different
things. But no man can feel other
wise than perfectly satisfied when he
buys a bill of lumber from us. He
may know nothing about the grade
of lumber, but he does know that he
gets exactly what he buys, and sees
it befoTe he buys and pays for it-big
item, isn't it? Should a mistake
occur it is cheerfully corrected. Our
grades are right and our prices are
right. There is no bill too large for
us to handle and none too small to
receive our most careful attention.
Our motto is, "A satisfied cus
tomer is the best advertisement,"
