There will be a-meeting* of the General and Executive Committees of the Democratic Party at the office of T. L. Glenn in Montpelier at 2 p. m., on Saturday May lbth, 1903. As there* will be business of importance transacted it is desirable tnat there be a full attendance of the members. James E. Haut, Chairman. L. T. Shepard, Secretary. A DESERVED PRODDING. ^ The Post last week gave some of the Paris business men a deserved ginning up for then* failure to sustain, their home paper. Besides what it said, the Post might have added, that most of these people, who do not use the advertising columns of the home paper, are the first squeal about people sending to Montgomery Ward & f!n ; and other eastern houses, for their goods. And further. If a new business or enterpi ize of any kind comes to town, which by its establishment prosperity for a city, it is the newspaper that is generally j responsible for it, yet many people fail utterly to give credit| where it is due. means more I ,, , , , , . generally catches these same people, who have never spent | a cent for home printers' ink. - The Examiner is especially fortunate on this score as al- ! Then again. If an advertising fakir comes to town b e most every business house in town uses its columns more or less. With Paris it is different. It is a great deal larger ; and better business city than the columns of the Post would | indicate, and the only reason why their local paper isn't a better sheet than it is, is because the business bouses over there won't give it a helping hand. Paris is too important a town not to have a good paper. / Warden Richards is causing the dams of the county to be equipped with the Montana fish ladder. This device is in expensive and it enables the fish to easily get over any dam. Another ne\y scheme for preventing fish going out in ditches, is the building of a paddle wheel at the head of the ditch. The wheel allows all trash to pass through, but fish rarely go by it. Mr. Richards intends to have every stream in the county, where ditches are taken out, to be equipped with either wheels or screen headgates. He has already l^yl nearly all the dams fixed up with fish ladders. The rest wM be attended to very soon. If the city council grants the permit for waterworks to Mr. Slusser, that gentleman expects to try for artesian water in this city. He thinks it can be had at a depth not to exceed 800 feet. The finding of such water would mean a great deal for this city and valley. It has long been sup posed that artesian wells could be had for the boring and the Examiner is glad Mr. Slusser is to demonstrate the proposition. _ With a water system, an electric light spstem and a telephone system there is little more to be desired on the part of the Montpelier people.
