As a conseiUencc of that belief, tho conn ru ni mat cur the other evening raisetl the license fee for itinerant merrhants from t.9 to 30(). The theory on which that was done is that Peoria merrhants pay taxes to support the town, and increase its improvements, employ Peoria belli and spend what money they make there. They consider that ther are entitled to some protection from the peddler and wandering merchant who drift into town, rent a store for a few weeks, stay only long enough usually to gull a lot of people into thiaktag that the? are getting some thing cheaper and better than their home aaerehants can aell them, and tbea more on to the next town, tak ing their protita with them.

The greatest of the permanent attrao- of Ooldei Golden Gate park will eooa be ready for tbe public This Is no leas than the marble cascade on the eastern slop of Strawberry hilL The finfehtaff touches are now being yat on that work of art, and whea the pumping machinery ia ready to furnish the water for it the cas cade will begin to pour its water down the'abeer side of the hill to form one of the aaoat magnificent artificial waterfalls la rAe world. The falls will hare two descents of 80 feet each. The first fall will empty Ma foamy waters into a basin half way op the hillside, and the waters will take an other plunge and fall into a similar basin at the base of the cliff. From the latter pool they will flow under a footwalk into the lake. When it is stated that Vernal falls, ia Yosemite valley, are only 830 feet, or a little over thrice the height of the marble cascades, and pro portionately contain no larger volume of water at their normal state than it will, the force in comparison will be under stood. The cascades will lack some thing in tho grandeur of snrroundinga that other falls possess, but this will ha compensated for in some landscape crea tions on their borders that will, when their verdure shall have bad time fur de velopment, make of them a south Pacifio island dream.
