' The council has under considera
tion an ordinance that will make ma
tertal changes in the fire department
of the city of Grants Pass, the ordi
nance having been read Drst and sec
ond times Thursday night, and will
come up for final passage or rejec
tion at the next regular session. The
material changes in the administra
tion of the department lies in the
provision for the chief and assistant
chief engineer, who are to be ap
pointed by the council, and the chief
engineer to hare supervision and
superintendence over the volunteer
department at all times. The chief
and his assistant are to have charge
of the anto Are trnck, and must be
The chief engineer under the ordi
nance Is given full authority over the
TOlnnteer Bremen, with power to
fine for non-attendance at drills, or
to expel from the company on vote of
the company. The firemen, of
whom there can be one or more com
panies, are to bepaid 12.50 for each
fire they attend where water is used,
providing, however, that they shall
not be paid If they are not at the
lire within fifteen minutes after the
alarm is given. For fires where only
the chemical engine la required, the
firemen shall receive $1.26 for at
tendance. The chief and hit assistant are to
appear In uniform at all times, and
are likewise clothed with police pow
ers, with authority to wear the of
ficial star and make arrests on occa
sion. No extra compensation is al
lowed for this service. The chief
and hlf assistant are now paid sal
aries of $76 per month, though the
chief will probably be given a ma
terial increase over this figure, as
his request for the raise seems to
meet with the favor of the city dads.
RESPECT FOR LAW AND ORDER.
One of the things which apparent
ly escapes the attention of most
scribbling travelers In Germany is
the double line of fruit trees along
the public roads, says the National
Magazine. There are several thous
and miles of these trees on either
side of public roads in northern Oer
many. Most of them are apple
treeB. You know what would happen
to those apple trees In any American
state. Boys would pick the fruit
green too Impatient to wait for it
to ripen, and likely enough they
would break down the trees getting
the fruit. What happens In Ger
many? The public authorities sell
the fruit crop to contractors at from
$200 to $'00 per mile, and apply the
proceeds of the sale to the upkeep
of the roads. BoyB do not steal the
apples. Nor Is it necessary to main
tain a policeman every 100 feet to
prevent such mischief. Why are the
German boys so much more respect
ful of property rights than American
boys 7 Is the difference racial? I
hardly think so. It's a difference of
training, probably. I'm inclined to
believe the universal military train
ing, with Its constant strict insist-
ence upon obedience to law and or
der, aud the strong elemeut of mor
al training In the public school cur
riculum, added to the knowledge that
offenses against public property will
be promptly and severely punished,
accounts for the safety of the pub
lic orchards which line the roadways
of Germany. Respect for the law,
and for other people's rights seems
to be ingrained in the German char
acter. You must have noticed it In

views of two big party leaders In the
house on the democratic tariff which
will be adopted this afternoon In
practically the same form as dratted
by the house ways and means com

Press here today. They follow:
By Oscar Underwood of Alabama,
leader of the democratic majority in
the house. As the new tariff bill
passes the bouse today it may be
said that the democratic party has
kept Us pledges to the people and the
promises made in the Baltimore
platform. I feel confident that It
will bring relief to the people in re
ducing the cost of living and better
adjustment of business conducted
under modern methods.

of the republican minority. The
true Indictment of the bill is that it
aids foreign laborers by throwing
open our markets and discriminates
against American laborers forced to
meet unjust competition and enorm

As a menace to the present unparal
leled prosperity of the country, under
which the earnings of worklngmen
provide more necessities than ever
before, the bill seems to be a suc
