There la a crying need ia this town tor better lire protection. It is a question which affects everyone. It Should interest both tenant and land lord,: merchant and manufatcurer, wnetner iney carry fire insurance or not. There has been agitation within the last year over the rates which are charged in this town by the insurance companies and the answer came back "You can't expect better rates until i you have better fire protection." If this were the only reason wi . would be for better fire protection JFire protection means that every part of the city shall be so well supplied with hose houses that it shall be pos sible for the fire department to get to 'the scene of action without delay and to be" there so quickly that there will be no need of there being a fire large enough to force the municipality to send out of town for aid. ' The time to put out a fire is in the beginning, and not when it has gone beyond control. The fact that Rich mond has been singularly free from ' widespread fires, does not argue that . we snau not nave tnem. It means that we haven't had our big fires yet It has been due to fate and fortune, quite as much as the gallant work of our too small fire force that the town has not suffered grievously. A chang ed wind you know the rest. , 1 To have adequate fire protection we should have every part within the cor- ; porate limits well supplied with fire facilities. Have we? Take the city of Richmond and con sider that a large section of the town in which are not only many resi dences, but many factories is not cov ered. That is West Richmond. Added to this, is the fact that this is a growing part of the town. Think of West Richmond a few years ago. . There were then some houses and a small number of factories. But go there today and you will find that this is no inconsiderable part of the whole residence district of Richmond. (You will find houses going up, and many already built) You know that it la a good place for factories and facto ries mean more residences, more rest dences mean more people. More peo ple mean a growing town. More houses and factories will be built with proper fire protection. Think it over. Here is the most dis tant part of the city from the fire cen ter, with never a hose house. Take your knowledge of West Rich mond with its great expanse spread out waiting for a fire and then think of the east side of the river with FOUR hose houses. As a simple proposition of justice to those who pay taxes on the West Side and who live in the cor poration of Richmond, we ask "Is it fair?" You know it ia not fair. You know ; that every other part of Richmond has fire protection. The West Side has been paying in money to the city treas , ury quite long enough without getting , what it ought to have had long ago. What is the use of living inside a corporation and paying corporation taxes if people are cot allowed the same things that the other citizens are v. ': allowed? What is the use paying in money to this corporation for fire protection without receiving that fire protection? What is the use paying'high fire insur ance rates when those rates can be low- cmuI hv Tinvinsr fire nrotectlnn V Thp pv fire protection is paid for already and has been paid for, for years. Why not " demand the delivery of the goods? 'But yon say: "I am in favor of the proposition. I know the West Side needs It, I know they ought to have bad it long ago, I know that it is a matter of justice. But T' "Have we the money to spend?' ' "Kvn't we spent lots of money late ly for sewers and street improvement? Isn't there a limit on the debt that the city can carry?' ''.",' "I would be in favor of the scheme if there was money for It." In answer we say that there is one way that the West Side can. have its hose house. . . . The West Side can have its, hose house if the f 'nances of the city are not man-handled. The West Side can have Its hose house if there is some, careful management. The West Side can have its fire protection if the city does not spend the money which the West Side has paid in, in taxes for things which can wait. As we look at it, the West. Side hose house proposition affects tie whole town as well as one section of the town. The need for it is one which demand3 attention. The town will not go to ruin if a few. other things are allowed to wait. But this can only be done by care fulness in the handling of the city's business. That is one reason why we must be careful in choosing those whom we entrust the city government to. -.'.,," .-' The West Side and the rest of tbo city can have what they want if they will demand that they receive the first loose change that goes into the city treasury. A hose house is not a thing that costs a huge outlay, neither Is it a great drag on the running expenses of the town. Considered as an invest ment me nose house is not only a necessary expense but one of those precautionary expenditures that will put money in the pocket directly and avoid paying out large , sums in the future. It will mean that the insurance rates can be lowered and that means money in everybody's pocket. It will mean that West Richmond will grow and that will increase trade. That in turn will put money in your pocket. New factories and new houses are not to be dispised. They will help pay for the new hose house because with an increase of the building there will be an increase in the amount of prop erty for taxation all of which money will be paid back into the city treas ury. But it is a matter of simple justice. It f.'j a matter of economy. It is a business proposition. It means a growing Richmond. ineretore we are for the Hose House and we shall work for it be cause it is not for one section of Rich mond alone but because it is for the whole town.

To the Editor of the Palladium: May I send in a few belated words regarding Professor Trueblood's action " iu itwui eieciion: i nave so much confidence in his sincerity of purpose that I do not believe him to have been actuated by any other mo tive than the one he has assigned, and I am sure that had he anticipated the publicity given to his act ad the result ing disturbance, he would not have vot ed at all since he could not conscien tiously vote for local option. I want to emphasize oe point, how ever, and because it seems to be one of the greatest Importance, I want to ask, In the name of Mary F. Thomas, Margaret Dennis, Martha Valentine Caroline Hodgin and the rest of the now Immortal host of workers for the cause of temperance in Richmond, that the eloquent writers who are defending his course, put the period of silence to their letters in his behalf. The point I wish to make is that every argument from Mr. Foulke's brilliat pen, every word spoken through the press by Mr. Trueblood in his own defense will fig ure for a long time as ammunition for the enemy's guns, and every liquor dealers' publication In, the country will seek and find there the consolation they have long been on a keen lookout for. Mr. Trueblood was wrong if the teni perance workers are sincere, for the reason that no one can conceive of their resting until the evils immedi ately resulting irom prohibition are wiped out. It will take time to ac complish all that must be done, but prohibition is the necessary first step If the women whose names I have used with their fellow laborers were living today in Richmond "blind tigers" wouldn's have much chance to exist. a l - li i . . . Ana l oeneve mat mere are just as faithful and competent women and men. too, able and willing to under take finishing the work of reform, if it had been properly begun. The defense of Professor Trueblood' course by the students furnishes the strongest argument yet put forth against it. I looked at the one black spot on the temperance map of Indi ana the other day. I thought "If that spot wore the "dry" color that all the others voting wear, how we could im agine the rejoicing among the women who bore the burden and heat of the battle for temperance the women who are now in the silent beyond, but as it is-!

But he also taught 'em many a trick, Like the Japanese, when they're wrestlin', do In the game we speak of as "joo-jit-soo."

V essBBaaajsam AN AMAZING PERFORMANCE IS THE WAY THE EDITORIAL WRITER LOOKS UPON EARL HAM'S TREATMENT OF RATLIFF AND TRUEBLOOD. In an editorial, the Indianapolis Star, speaking on the subject of "Tol eration," finds subject matter in af fairs concerning Earlham College. The college is not spoken of in a particular ly favorable manner. The Star says the spirit of intoleration such as re viewed in histories and accredited to earlier centuries is found even at this date. What the Star Says. The Star says in part: Looking back at it people of this twentieth century are wont to congrat ulate themselves complacently on their superior liberality and to think with wonder and pity of the narrow and bit ter views of their forefathers. And yet, is there so much difference? Signs that come to the surface every now and then indicate that the same intol erant spirit exists now and only needs an exciting cause to bring it into ac tion. ,;. ., , .. '" ..

Business men are afraid to express themselves on the subject for fear of being voy cotted by the opposing element, and the temperance and saloon Interests are equally feared. A professor at Earlham, a man of high principles and irreproachable life, is v reviled and threatened by anonymous correspond ents because it seemed to him wiser for his borne city to have licensed sa loons rather than to be infested with "blind tigers. and he voted according ly.

She now occupies one of the city's largest office buildings, which she owns, and almost one hund red lady clerks and stenographers are required to assist in this great busi ness. Some time ago it was announced that she would give to women who suffered from female diseases another $10,000.00 worth of her medicine. She has ful filled this promise, but as she is still receiving requests from thousands up on thousands of women from all parts of the world, who have not yet used her remedy, she has decided to give How To Cure Any Case CI Piles.
