It has been a matter of comment for
some time with regard to so many farm

to live in town? ' Well, we said, proba

IN A JUST CAUSE,

The Sltsstaa f the I'rcs. Maintained

Th& Akguj has received muco com
mendation for its course in looking into
and exposing the tomalie industry which
has been working the city for some time,
and the proprietor of which has had tbe
nerve to seek to recover $2,000 from this
paper for telling the truth and protecting
the public health. While tbe course of
Tbb Argus in giving to the public some
of the facts pertaining to a filthy dive
from which tomalles are peddltd out to
the public of the three cities, was, as
heretofore said, not actuated by motives
other than a desire to insure to the people
clean and wholesome food, yet this paper
has no charity for those who seek by
means of a $2,000 bluff to murzle
or intimidate the press in its duty
to tbe public. The position of this
paper was stated frankly and plainly
last night.and also in connection with tbe
article which has been so grievously pain
ful to tbe proprietor of the joint and his
attorneys. That a gang of itinerants
who pay no taxes or no licenses and who
peddle through the streets night after
night articles of human food should be
Offended because the condition of their
establishment should be investigated, and
laid bare to tbe public seems almost too
amusing for serious contemplation. It
amounts to ths next thing to audacity
There ought to be a law. either state or
municipal to insure the proper inspection
of all establishments where human food
is prepared, and until that is secured the
press must take upon itself tbe duty.
That is what The Argus proposes to do
at anv rate.
