THURSDAY, APRIL 3, 1919 The city election will take place on Tuesday, April ports of probable candidacies are cur rent, and a contest over several city" offices is promised. The incoming city admiuistratiun will have many difficult problems to handle. It must determine whether, within the next two years, ßraugeville is to forge ahead and become an attractive residen ce city or whether it is to stay a coun try town with wooden sidewalks and streets of mud and chuck-holes. The new administration must decide on a city hail and other municipal improve ments. In considering the several candidates for the city council, it would be well for the voters to determine who are progrssive. A bright, cean, attractive city cannot bo brought about without the expendi ture of mouej'. Now that the war is A number of re ciyi and with improvement will come growth of business and population. Improve ment costs money, and without expendi !ure of money, nothing will grow ex cept weeds on vacant lots. 'The city election is important, and upon the outcome of the forthcoming election will depend whether Grange ville is to progress or stagnate.

WIRES CROSSED Announcement that necessity requi increase of approximately 20 telegraph res an percent in telephone and rates in the United States, under gov eminent control of wire communica tion, will cause to arise anew in the minds of the people the wisdom of gov-1 emmental experimentation in the op eration of various great public utili ties. The increase is said by Postmaster General Burleson to be due to iucrea-(■$> sed salaries paid employes of the tele phone and telegraph. True it was, un der private ownership of these utilities, many employes received meager wages, but nevertheless the wages paid these selfsame employes usually Were com mensurate with the ability displayed by the workers. Telegraph operators, in minor positions, received net more than $40 a mouth, in many instances, but in larger cities, qualified opera tors, working under the bonus system, frequently were able to earn $150 to $200 a month, depending entirely upon ability to accurately and rapidly trans mit a great number of messages. If the public is to be continually con -1 fronted by increases in telephone and I telegraph rales, in order that obscure employes of the wire communication systems may be coddled by the gov ernment, especially in "the matter of greatly increased wages, the, |iufilic some day will realize that the public, itself, is entitled to some coddling, in the matter of improved service and rea sonable charges therefor. ^ ial Correspondence; Buchanan of 110 was transactm « hllsiness herP Wednesday The Community club held a social J Tuesday afternoon for the ladies who J «> FERDINAND <%• •$>•?><$> 'i> <s> < 8 > < 8 > ■*> <$> <«> <*> '»><$''«> <S> spent the time in needle work.
