DELAY, NOT DEFEAT. There la general regret that the decision of the supreme court on the Grants Pass bond question Is ad Terse, though the only effect of the decision will be to cause a delay of thirty to sixty days In the making of the bonds available. Since the city voted by a 20 to 1 vote to Is-1 sue these bonds there baa been no ! change In sentiment. When the' question la again submitted to the j people the vote will be just aa over-: vhelmlngly In favor of It. Until af- j tor the council and tbe commission : have met and considered tbe deds- Ion In full, and have weighed the considerations surrounding the case, It Is impossible to say what ef fect the adverse decision will have i upon Immediate operations, though It is possible that the work on the ; city portion of the road will be dis continued till tbe people have again ; Toted affirmatively. It Is evident from the brief draft of the decision i at hand that the court does not hold ' tbe bonding unconstitutional, thus putting a stop to the few claquers who would like to have their wis dom confirmed on this point. COAL THAT 13 N'EEDF.D. Investigation by the government agents in the Squaw creek basin country baa verified tho reports that ' have come from that district con-! cernlng the coal deposit there, both t) as regards its quantity and its qual ity. Many have been skeptical re garding the coal in the district, good things noar at home being the last to gain the confidence of the people. There Is a great dearth of good coal nnJ pang flre ,n yew .. wJI, be on the west roast, and there is de- abaoute RlinFBntee fl,nIn8t R tnand that the Squaw creek field be miron(i lnun(latlon,.. opened at the earliest moment.

Garrigns, attorneys for a number of settlers on i the grant lands, appearing aa lnter- j venert. The government was represented TO PREVENT FLOOD LOSS. Data gathered by the Indianapolis chamber of commerce for its special jCommlttee on flood prevention shows j that in many cities stricken by the j floods of last March steps have been taken to prevent a repetition of the 'disasters. A dogged determination jwas shown in the replies to the chamber's queries to wipe out all danger of such floods at any cost. This was the spirit evinced in the Dayton and the Colnmbtis replies and the officials of these two cities apparently believe that they would get the bond Issues to back up the prevention plans. John Basse, gen eral secretary of the Columbus chamber of commerce said: "When these plans are received It Is the purpose of the city to vote a bond Issue, and, no matter what the cost may be, meet for all time the iBHiie that will present Itself. We will not continue with bik h a men ace confronting the city. In this mind the people stand as a unit." Edward A. Deeds, a member of the Dayton flood prevention com mittee, wrote: "Tho Morgan Engl-tii-'rln at coin;niiy has been at work" three months In the field making a com pl e survey. They have in structions to prepare complete plans which will guarantee our city against . . , . . . another disaster, and expect to have .,,,,,, , ,.,, . , . , , , within ;i year the plans complete and work started." Hamilton, o., which lost over inn liven and over $9,000,000 in prop erty, reported through C. R. Greer, secretary of the citizen's relief com mittee, that a survey Is being made iuu mat ifi'uriPQ nine or no steps toward permanent relief. This place was seriously damaged by the flood and nearly a acore of lives lost. Its business men were reported they were contemplating asking for state aid. Cairo and Evansvllle reported that levees were being repaired to J)0,nt wbpre dnnt:(r Qf futufe ,n. nndntlons would be practically nil. Mso Cleveland. Cincinnati and In- linnapolis. in which the property loss Inst March was heavy, reported active campaigns for permanent re iief from floods. TliE HOMESTEADER YiNi.

Effort bad been made on various previous occasions to have this tract opened to homestead en try, but under other administrations It was a most difficult job to have lands once within the limits of a re serve again opened. The homesteader Is the pioneer of progress and the trail-blazer of what ever of prosperity and development ever comes to a country. He is the tamer of the wild places, and to him la doe the consideration of the de partment heads, a consideration that ha too often been given with a grudge.

The country will be pleased at the prospect of final passage of the Dem ocratic tariff bill before the 10th of September, ays the St. Louis Repub lic. The solidarity of the democrats on the sugar schedule holds out no hope of breaking their party line on any of the wool rates. The two Lou isiana senators who abandoned their party on sugar, will, in all probability return to It In supporting its action In proposing to place all grades of wool on the free list. And t,he wool schedule Is the only one yet to be seriously contested. The Republican minority In the senate will, as It should, make a strong effort to force a number of amendments to the bill as proposed. We can see no prospect for the adoption of any one of them. And with wool out of the way, the obvious policy of both minority and majority should he to put the measure through as speedily aa possible, and let the business of the country begin adjusting Itself to the new conditions. How easy, or how difficult, thin necessary work of readjustment Is noing to be, can as yet be only sur mised (lov. P'oss of Massachusetts has already said that his vny of re adjusting his Iron manufacture to the new tariff rates will be to move his Iron mills nnoss the Canadian bor der. Such a course will lie possible, however, only to a very few of the concerns which have made heavy in vestments In Industrial plants In this country. In meeting increased for eign competition, and being forced to make lower prices In doing so, It is much to he feared that the efforts to equalize losses by reducing wages will lend to a large number of strikes and lockouts. Industrial readjust ments are always difficult, and al though the one now near at hand has been seen approaching for some time, It has been Impossible to prepare for It in advance. Not until the new competition has to be faced can em ployers tnke steps to readjust their expenditures to their decreasing pro fits. We are now so near the event that It Is not inviting charce or sus- plclon of partisanship to say that it Is to be feared the process of read justment will, in many cases, be a painful one.
