" WHAT ABOUT PARK COXCES-
' 8IOX8.
., , Some two months ago Mr. Greer,
In m. letter to the park board sug
t, gested that it would be a good In
w'i.Conje proposition for the park, and
would relieve a necessity in the city
for quarters to accommodate sum
mer sojourners, to establish a tent
. city on the old Chautauqua grounds
in the park. He proposed, It the
, ' park board did not see its way clear
to .make the Investment, he would
pay the park commission fifteen hun
dred dollars for a five-year conces
sion to establish not to exceed two
hundred tents, agreeing to keep up
' the grounds about themplpe water
and gas to each tent and to arrange
' the' tents and grounds artistically at
' his. own expense.
After consideration the park board
decided that under the charter pro-
'' : vision not giving the park board
'power to "sell or lease" park prop
h
ertv the concession could
' (ranted. '
' ' We think the park board should
' install the enterprise rather than sell
v' a' concession. It could be made to
4 pay live thousand dollars per year
' - profit in five years. But will they
' do it?

considerable money to
will be necessary to sell reasonably M THE SUNNY SOUTH

amusements be supplied for the com-
fort and entertainment of visitors. It
"appears a short sighted policy to
'' neither supply them or grant con-
" cessions to others willing to supply
' ' them
' After looking somewhat Into the;
law we are satisfied that the park
' board is not estopped from granting
uch a concession. However, the
' matter should have a binding decls
' Ion In the interest of the further de
velopment of the city along resort
lines. It should be taken Into
' - court and settled, lor if such conces
sions are not legal then Fourth of
" July' concessions are not legal. The
matter should be taken Into court and
' the' power determined or the law
should be changed.

technicalities. ,
-' DANGER OF HIGH VOLTAGE
WIRES
The Free camp ground sign at the
Junction of Main and the Plata was
removed yesterday because the pole
was decayed and tear was enter
tained that the sign might pull it
over where pedestrians would come
in contact with the high voltage
electric wires carried on it. It Is
a mistake In a city, to carry high
wire on poles anyway. Where pop
ulation is congested all high voltage
wire should be carried In conduits
underneath the ground. To make
the change would prove expensive
but not more so than the damages
resulting from the electrocution of
one or more citizens. It is a matter
'well worth Tendering.
SHOWS REAL PROSPERITY
Ashland bank statement Just Is
sued Is indicative of the forward
movement of the city along all lines.
The 'deposits of all of them is larg
est in the history of the several In
stitutions. Ashland Is not booming
but she Is enjoying real and solid
'prosperity. She has started devel
oping along her lines of least resist
ance and her effort are bringing
results. Her advancement now Is
apparent enough ao that her most
pessimistic citizen must acknowledge
it, to himself at least. That means
that our. average citizen will gain
confidence In our future, all of which
pmounts to a vast sum In putting a
city forward. For our part w think
'rents and' real estate are too cheap in
Ashland. Had we on hundred

The Increase In the number of
pupils entering the public schools at
the opening of the year last week
I a good crlterfon of how our city
grow. At the end of seven days
of school this year, September 16,
Superintendent O. A. Briscoe made
a report of the number of pupils In
the schools, which shows a total of
903. pupils, and is a gain over that
of last year's report made October 4,
after school had been In session
twelve days.
The report for the two years is aR
follows: '

Hawthorne 274 .297
Junior High 408 426
Senior High ...... A.. 183 180
Total 863 903
This year' enrollment so far lacks
three of being as high a last year.
This Is due to the fact that few of
the older boys have given up their
excellent Jobs to enter school, but
Superintendent Briscoe makes the
statement that by next Monday this
school will In all probability bavo
an enrollment of 200.
From the first of September to
the 18th, 29 new subscribers havn
taken out cards at the public library.
This Is an indication that Ashland
is growing as these are practically all
newcomers who have lately located
here. Beside this 29 there are a
number of transients who got books
at the library who are not entered
as regular subscriber. One of tbe
latter came Into the library a day
or ao ago and stated that she had
not realized that pleasure ws in
store for ber before. She si:1 1 she
had been so taken up with' Ashland

It was the good fortune of the pub

He came from northwestern Iowa
and had traveled ull over South Da

right away."
After giving a description of the
trip to Crater Lake the editor said
further: "The return trip was ac

the outgoing Journey and we arrived
In Ashland in plenty of time to clean

Fruit is the leading product of that

Find Ho Room for
Poor St. George
(By tbe United Press)
LONDON. (By Mall.) Famous
Britisher wll have to hurry up and
die it they want to be burled In the
uutlonal Valhalla, Westminster Ab
bey. There Is absolutely only room
for six more, and they will have to
be cremuted first, according to Rev.
Cauon R. H. Charles, who is In
charge of abbey grave and Inter
ments. Tbe suggestion cabled from Aus
tralia that tbe abbey should be the
laBt resting place of a casket of
bones, alleged to be those of Eng
land's aptron saint, St. George of
Cuppadocla, which were excavated
by Australian troops in Palestine,
finds little favor with Canon Charles.
"I don't care 'tuppence about bis
bones," he declured emphatically.
"Just now I am more concerned
about tbe remains of England, If the
labor troubles don't cease.
"Anyway, there is only room for
the remains of six more famous peo
ple In the abbey. I am trying to se
cure additional ground for Inter
ments! there are some old bouses ,
behind one of our Norman walls
which will have to come down some
duy. I want the space reserved for
the Interment of the famous men.
There are so many, great men nowa
days, and there will be so many In
the years to come, that space for six
seems Inadequate.. If we get this
space we might have room for St.
George."
LONDON. (By Mall. ) Prof it
eerlng and the H.C.L. is not a modern
evil. Queen Elizabeth bad to deal
with it, and she adopted drastic
measures against sixteenth century
profiteers, or "bodgers," as they
were popularly called then. Ao
Elizabethan proclamation to lords
lieutenant of counties and local au
thorities of, dated 1597, Is Interest
ing, if only for the strong language
used by that autocratic soverlgn, as
compared with present-day legal
phraseology.
"Elizabeth, By the Grace of God,"
etc., says to "bodgers:"
"Wee understand that upon the
late dearth of all kynde of grain, and
of butter and cheese and other-victuals
In this Realm, although Al
mighty God hath mercifully with
drawn His heavle hand wberewith
we deserved our late punishment,
and hath now yielded us a change
to the great comfort of all sorts of
people" (tbey evidently bad wars,
too) "Yet there are seen and found
a number of wicked peoole In condi
tion more like to wolves or cormo
rants than to natural men, that do
most covetously seek to hold up the
lute great prices In corn and all other
victuals by Increasing the same Into
their private hands, bargaining be
forehand for corn, and In some parts
for grain growing, and for malt be
fore It Is mads, and for butter and
cheese before It be ready to be
brought to ordinary market for to be
bought by the poorer number.
"Against which foul corrupt fraud
and malicious greediness there are
both many good laws and sundry or
ders of late given to all Justices and
other public officers to reform such
notable abuses, and therefore wee
