HO] *iw| FkKIay C " E ' WBIOH ' r ' Editor and Proprietor Montpelier, Friday. March 14, 1919 A PEW PACTS. As probable nominees for mayor we have heard mentioned the names of Jeff Davis, Richard Uroo, L. C. Norris and John J. Jones. The Kx »miner has no favorite to groom w.oiN r the mayoralltyshlp. It'a only desire la to see some man at the head of the city for the ensuing two years who hi progressive and wilt assist the newly organised Boosters' club in carrying to successful conclusions some ot the projects the club hss in view, which have tor the object the making of & better and more up-to date town of Montpelier. The Boosters' club, as we under stand its objects, does not intend to capture the moon and all of the stars In the heavens. Neither does it intend to advocate policies which would bur den the city with enormous debt, but It has In view the accomplishment of some things in the immédiate fu ture which will be of everlasting ben efit to the city. The club is going after the little things first. Things, however, which can only be accom plished by organization upon the part of Its business men. In mil of Its efforts the club well have the loyal support of the Examin er. We wish to Impress this fact firmly upon the minds of every one. It has come to our knowledge that an effort has been made recently to discredit the Examiner in the minds ot some people. It has been insinu ated that the Examiner would not lend tta support to the organization of any sort ot a commercial or boosters' clab. Such insinuation» as these are but the ran tings of shallow brain ed individuals, who would build themselves up by beating down their fellow man. We challenge any citizen of Mont pelier to point to a single instance in the past fifteen years in which the Examiner has opposed any project that had for its object the betterment or improvement of the city or county. In many ot the improvements that have been brought about in that time the Examiner has taken the lead and In a few cases it fought for them gUigle handed and alone. Prominent among these, was the erection of a new passenger depot here. Through the efforts ot the Ex aminer the state sanitary Inspector sent a deputy here to Inspect the con / y Plows! Plows! QWe want to call your attention to one of the plows of the Famous Oliver Line Once Always v * an an IV ER * Oliver Oliver, \ & § This is the easy operated, light draft Oliver No. 39 Sulky, with plenty of beam clearance for trashy ground; wide range devise adjustment, convenient levers, dust proof wheels, adjustable cut and quick detachable shares.

" ■' dittoes about the old depot, lie •ult tu be recommended that it be condemned for use as a station. A few days following the filing of his report with the state in spector. came the news from Salt , that wnr b on . now laike that work on a new passenger station would t>egln at an early date. The Examiner took the lead in ad vocating the construction of cement sidewalks in Montpelier, and after the appearance of the first issue fa voring this improvement, the editor ! receiving a cussing from a Main ' street property owner who said the citizens could not afford such im provement. The Examiner took the lead in fa vor of installing a water system in Montpelier. That Montpelier has a high school today is due largely to the efforts of of the Examiner and persona! work upon the part of the writer. Four years ago, when the present mayor and majority of the present councilmen were nominated, the res olutions adopted at the convention | contained a plank favoring submit ting to a vote of the people the ques tion as to whether or not the city should issue bonds for the purpose of erecting a city hall. The writer was the author of that plank. Other things might be mentioned which the Examiner has advocated In the past, but the above are suffi cient for now. We would not refer to these things at this time were It not for the àitsrepresentations that have been made by irresponsible parties since the movement was In augurated to organize the Boosters' club, which is starting on a founda tion that promises to result in a solid and lasting organization for the up building of Montpelier and Bear take county. We trust that this statement will put an end to the gabble that has em inated from some who have endeav ored to discredit the Examiner and place it in a false light before the people. Now and at all times in the future as long as the writer presides at the helm of the Examiner, the paper will be found ready and anxious to sup port every worthy proposition for the advancement and Improvement of Montpelier and Bear take eounty.

O NE NIGHT—:-— Saturday, March 15 A NEW GYMNASIUM. It Is time that Montpelier high (school had a gymnasium. ' are such at the present time that athletics cannot be indulged in and as a result the physical education of Conditions the students is neglected. The school has reached a point . where further growth is practically impossible without the erection of a Gym. It is a well known fact that a gym is a great drawing card in the way of getting students. Quite a number of our students come from outside towns but there is no ques tion but what we would get many more if we had a suitable gym. When people plan on moving into town to send their children to school, natural ly the children exert an influence in favor ot the school with a good gym. with the result that many people who would move here for the winter go elsewhere. Therefore It effects the business of the town. Beside« the effect mentioned such « place afford« one of the best recreations for the business man. Arrangements can be made whereby the business men could use the building In the even ings and thpa not only get a great deal of pleasure but also get the exercise needed for perfect health.
