Three months........... 8lx months............. .........3.60 WEEKLY. _________ SO Altered at the Lewiston Poetoffioe aa second-elan matter. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13, 1907. EVERY KNOCK IS A BOOST. It was Burns that said "The best laid plans o' mice and men gang aft aglee and leave us not but hurt and pain for promised joy." We have al a a so been told that our opponent la our helper, and that in the end every knock is a boost There is publicity that la not promotion and many a promised boost Is a boomerang. Somewhere in the foregoing catego ry the story below will find a place. The Nez Perce herald In a very bitter editorial directed against Lew iston in the Issue of February 28 takes occasion to say all manner of mean things about the city regarding its location. Its climate and Its Indus tries. Its pen Is dipped in venom and the public is warned against the pre tentions of the city of destiny at the head of the great waterway of the op en river to the sea. This knock was meant to ba a solar plexus blow, but judge of the surprise of the editor that dealt the blow when he received from the secretary of one Of tha largest commercial clubs on the coast the following communica tion: "Dear Sir: The best advertisement I have yet seen for Lewiston Is your editorial on Thursday, February 28, under the heading of "Publicity for Lewiston.' "Whenever a city can reach the po sition where she can command the character of criticism you present to the metropolis of northern Idaho, her future is assured. In fact It made an investor decide favorably on a Lewis ton proposition. "I hope the new spirit which Is now pushing Lewiston to the front will en courage such editorials, as the trouble heretorore has been that Lewiston had a reputation for conservatism that was to her detriment. **T know that If you look at the mat ter calmly you will come to the con clusion that If history repeats Itself you are Injuring Nez Perce and bene fitting Lewiston." "CAMPAIGN OF AGITATION." President Truesdale of the Lacka wanna railroad bitterly complains of the "campaign of Agitation" against the railroads and epresses the fear that it means the end of our great prosperity. •There is ,in fact, no campaign of agitation against the railroads. On the contrary the people everywhere recognize the value of railroads and stand ready to do everything in reason to aid and encourage railroad build ing and successful and honest rail road management. The campaign of agitation Is only against the kind of "railroading" which Harriman and others of his class have been giving us for many months. The country has great sym pathy with the railroad builder—with the manager who develops a line, and, at the same time, develops the coun tray through which the line passes. But the country has little sympathy with the railroad owner who spends all of his time In Wall street and who uses his road for speculative pur poses rather than to encourage com merce and build up the country. It Is the Harriman kind of railroad ing, largely, that has prejudiced the the people against the big railway systems and led to the political re forms, many of them over-radical and unjust which are now sweeping the states. The stosk Jobbers have done much more toward bringing the curs es of the public upon the railroads than have active, real, practical man agers of the railroads. ! ! ' j j ! i I I ; j j j | !

It will break up a cold In 24 hours, and cure any cough that la curable. The Ingredients for this prescription can be found at any good drug store, but care should be taken that only the pure Virgin Oil of Pine should be used.

INCORPORATION GROWING FAST Vineland, It Is Claimed, Is Now Paying Too High Road Tax Clarkston Bureau of Evening Teller. CLARKSTON, Wash., March 13.— "The matter of Incorporating Vine land »with Clarkston should appeal so strongly to the heart of every resi dent of Vineland that no argument against the proposition would even be thought dT," said Elmer E. Halsey today. "The argument in favor of the pro position, which will eventually convert all Vlnelanders, is that of the direct expenditure of the road-tax money in the Vineland territory should they be annexed to Clarkston. "Vineland Is paying about $50 less than all the road tax that is paid In precinct No. 1 of Asotin county. The road tax paid amounts to about $3000. Vineland pays about $1500 "Not one cent of all this amount paid has been spent on the roads of Vineland for the past two years, every bit of it going to the southern portion of the district. The roads In Vineland are at this time sadly In need of re pairs, having been almost hollowed out by the dust blowing away which col lects in the traveled sections In the summer time. "Clarkston, with the Vineland ac cessory, should It be annexed, would then mount to the rank of a city of the third class. She now ranks about fortieth in the scale of the sizes of cities in Washington. With the pro posed Vineland addition she would rank close to twentieth. With that addition the proper advertising of the community and town would be more easily accomplished. "The committee which has charge of the work of securing the sentiments of Vineland residents regarding the matter, is meeting with good success, and will probably report favorably at the next meeting of the Industrial club which will he held at the High school building on the first Saturday In April." * FLASHES FROM THE WIRE. * •♦♦••♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦••I Washington, D.
