SHENn30AH, PA., TUESDAY. JTJJSTE 9. 1891. 0TE CENT. THE SUEEST EOAD TO WEALTH IS THROUGH LIBERAL ADVERTISING! THE DIVISION. To-morrow the viewers appointed by the court In the matter of dividing i tho wards of town will meet here. It la hoped that when their work is I ueluded they will have succeeded In appreciating the merits of the application. I iThe wards should be divided by all menus. ' A division will do away with th great Inconveniences the citizens are now obliged to meet and will insure a full vote at the election. There Is no town in tho county out side of Shenandoah where the elec tion officers are obliged to work uutjUL almost daylight to get out their re turns and at no time since the towi?B incorporation has a necessity forJV division of the wards been wefo pressing. y It is hoped that the claims in sup port of the petition will ba presented fairly and squarely and that the real and true reasons will not be shadowed by. the Billy croaklngs of those who are shouting that the division is a "rjet fjlltlcal scheme." It Is no scheme, but a stern neces sity. There Is not an Intelligent and reasonable man in the town who not admit tills. will Tho viewers selected, very for tunately, are respectable men of in telligence who are open to couvlcMon. The grounds upon wlilch tho division is asked are plain, simple and indls putable. Hence, we can see no rea son why the decision should be ad verse to tho application. The Sunday News vainly attempted, backed by a few professional poll ticiaus, to give the matter a black eye; but after floundering about for. a couple of weeks with a vain hope of eventually hitting upon some argu ment with a color of reason against the division It has given up with the last despairing cry, "Don't divide the Second ward." It is only a question a very short time when the divi sion of that ward will become an ab solute necessity and to divide it now Aviil save the time and expense of a OE3XTTS per yd for the BEST TABLE OILCLOTH, Bold In otlicr stores for 800.

Thlo, wo think, should warrant the viewers In turning a deaf oar to the last straw to which the JVctvs Is grasping. Let- all tho wards be divided now. poor excuse. A sample of tho arguments pre sented by tho few who have been cry ing against the division was picked up the other evening. The croakers np proached several taxpayers and at ternpted to frighten them with the statement, "Do) you know what a division will mean? Why it will necessitate the election of so many more Couucllmeu and School Direc tors I" This silly reasoning has, of course, failed to have the intended oU'ect. Suppose it means the increasing of the Council and School Board mem bership from 15 to 30, what harm can that work upon the taxpayers? The Councilmen and School Directors are not paid for their services, therefore If It necessitated the election of a hun dred Councilmen and School Directors It would not mean any additional burden upon the taxpayers. The truth Is this town Is too largo to be controlled by fifteen Councilmen and fifteen School Directors. There is plenty work In each of the bodies for double the number and, as they come cheap, why not have tbem ? Divide the wards. Oh, What a Oough. Will you heed tho warulug?
