There is no uncertainty about the position of the Tl.l.I,KK oh the issues of the day. Protection and silver, not one but both, are the watchwords of the day. These are not found in the demo*pop platform. The Tki. i.Kit is just as earnestly a supporter of silver as are Dubois, Sweet and their follow ers,'hut to perpetuate their old watch word the Tki.i.kk still says, "Not one, hut both." To combine these ideas, tiie logical position of this paper is for silver within the old republican party. Street sprinkling is a blessing to our tuir city. The abatement of tin* dust iiuisuucein the most effective manner is desired by ali refined people. The busy workers of this place have hut one day to enjoy this improvement and that is Sundav. The people all travel the streets on Sunday. They go to church, and visit and take restful promenades. On Sunday, however, which is everyhoily's «lay, the streets are not sprinkled.

Ail effort has lieen uiude to divert Isitli travel and trade away from Lewiston to all the aspiring rivals on the borders of these new set.» tlciueids. More money has lieen ex |M-mle«l by the friends of other towns than by the public for rood pur|«oscs, within the past year. The natural out let of this country is to and through Lewiston. There could lie roads built «in easy grades from every sett lenient In tlu* district to the head of navigation at the lum-ttoii of the rivers. The private roads have Invariably tieen over un natural course« lor the advancement of prlvute ends, uud against the liest In terests of the country and your hiir city. Ttic «-Horts minie to establish |«-gal thoroughfares huve, In some install ées, lieen defeated by technicalities. If the laws are so inexorable as to defeat justice they sliouhl lie of iio effect. The lii't*a«-li ot such n law is tietter limn Its observance. The question of ccn'iis • any Is not to lie considered when the hem-IKs are mo far reaching as are the hlcKHing of good r«>a«ls. The «IIHerenee between good roads and laid mails can not h<> ineasim-it In ilollars. The only tiim- for Ihe eslnhlislimi-n! of goo«| roads for long dlstaiiee, through any country, is while that country ism the stage of ilevelopinenl. When fields, orchards ami homes have oeeii pi-rinu m-ntly locali-il, publie condemnation is not praetieulil.i. All tin- good road ways are now five «Herings without recurrence to the constitutional pre rogative of eminent domain. l-lcoim tny denmnds prompt aetloii, and im Imsilate a.M-eptnm-e of the mud rights of way (liât ar«- five offerings. The eonsti uctioii of roads will not Is* a burden u|Mm the county. I'he for mal locations are tin-crying m-eds of the hour. The set tlers are reinly to «lo uât«- ai Hive tiie lawful tax a large mummt of labor which should he ac cepted by the county us a matter of «■eoiioniy.
