PUSU TUB RUMUM hQUAREIiY.
The old city council should not Lo
talked in 1W work of reform by the
ta!ucr of atlio .mayor or aldermen.
Jheyr are r probably not, Intentionally,
but tatuepreflenrcrlBta of-the city's af-
fair rnrtnlnlv lnonDOrtUnely. Pueb
the.worK of reducing -expenses. Tlie
ataeafc'esfenew.tbBtutuia would be, the
lartWSetlogoftho cauUclL ;tbisyear.
Tbey knew that a pleasure of refornj
proposing to-A'flect a'-euving'.of $4800 a
year was pending.- They knew that ii
was agreed upon by majority of tlie
connd!. They know that at the find
meeting of the new council a full board
ofoflloera must be chosen and, unleic
their salaries were reduced before theli
election, thov would continue anotbti
'year at present high pay. Knowiu
thee facts, the counollmen who are in
the qlty who favor u reduction should
not bebalked by tbe absentees.
Jnaldltlon to the reductions pro
pond by the reform committee ther
houldbe a reduction of $1000 a year in
th ' oflloe of city marshal. That propo
.sltloaruf the Journai has. tbe endorse
me tof, the. leading business menu!
the city. $100 u mouth is a good In
come tbwe days and a dozen men can
be found to;perlorm the duties of city
marshal for thut pay. The office of
marshal now Is worth from two ti
three thousand dollars a year, ir not
more. Tbe reduction of $1000 a year in
thU department would keep three men
at .work the year around on the streets
and support three families., It is a bus
iness proposition that the council should
not overlook. It is tbe application of u
sound rulo of economy that aldermen
would apply to their own business. It
lu a good rule p apply to public affairs.
No office should be worth more than ii
can be' well filled for. If $1500 was u
.fair salary Ayear ago $1000 is fair now.
But the salary of $1600 is not all tbe
marshal receives. By bringing cases
before the recorder as acting justice of
' tbe peace th marshal as constable get
-from $40 to $80 a month additional fees.
' i 'Besides there' are several "asides" that
could be named. No one can blame
the marshal for making all he can out
it, -efhis' office. But there Is a manifest
Injustice in a city's affairs where one
i i man 1b paid $3000 a year out of the city
treaiuryi and the city is economizing
by cutting off men on tbe police force
and laborers on the streets, who have
families to support at common day
If policemen aro to ;be discharged, if
laborers on the street force are to be
cut' off, let the income of the olty mar
, isha b reduced proportionately, That
f Is Justice. A prominent Balem corpor
Vatlon recently found it necessary to re-
trench its expenses to the amount of
. four or. flvo thousand dollars a year,
The salaries were reduced all around,
t Including the highest officials. In fact
om t of tbe severest cuts were made on
thoss who received the biggest pay.
Ii it tbe council not fail to meet tonight
and push its work of reform earnestly
and vigorously, Honest men will not
- "conduct the people's business less care-
folly than their own.

TbyTH " Oif;ett rovl were
built by private enterprise. The worse
than no roads are built with road
taxes. Tbe difference Is the difference
between wisdom and folly, intelligence
and ignorance, scientific method and
bap-hazard Incapacity. Tbe Claggett
road Is only good where it was finished.
Where It was only graded and ditched
but not sufficiently covered with gravel
It Is like the rest, only the worse for
the work done upou It. Bring these
facta before a road convention.
But enough has been done on theso
two pieces of road to prove forever the
difference between application of
private enterprise and gravel, and pub
lic supervision and summer-fallowing.
To grade up a road, without proper
drainage, is only to make an elevated
qu.igmlre. .To plow aud scrape a road
bed without finishing it with a heavy
roller and coat of gravel or broken rock
is like puttlug the sheeting on a roof
without putting on, the shingles, or
committing any -.other piece of aston
ishing folly, and should be madu a pub
llo crime.' Tho public official who will
'bus expend thousands of public taxes

Intelligent thau stopping up rat holes
with porridge, or patching holes lu a
ship's side with tissue paper. The pub
lic noed to be educated to realize the
immorality of collecting taxes to make
roads worse Instead of better. Call
road convention for this purpose.
Call a road convention lo begin tbt
work of building good roads in this
county. Let a convention take counsel
with engineers and surveyors and au
thorities on road buildiug and prepare
an upproved plan upon which a piece
of road shall be built at once. Let an
other committee make an estimate of
the cost of a first class gravelled road
from Salem to Woodburn, and from
Salem to Dallas and submit a plan for
raising the money. Two hundred dol
lars a mile at present prices of labor and
material will probably build a pasaabli
road bed. If properly managed $5000
can be raised to build a road from tie,
lem to Woodburn or Dallar.
It can be done within six months,
before the dry season sets in. At all
events let us move. Counsel will bring
wisdom. Consultation will develop
ways and means. The American peo
ple possess the grit aud the means to
extricate themselves out of the mud.
Only get them directed upon the ob
stacle to be overcome aud it must yield.
Call a road convention. Our best
business men and largest farmers, prop
erty owners and taxpayers should pub
licly issue a call for a county road con
vention, Do not wait for some politic
ian or puiiiVuK)rtlclal to act. Act your
selves. Do not wait for the county
court or commissioners or the legisla
ture. It is imperative that a start be
made lo break the embargo of. mud.
This county does not suffer from bard
times, low prices, mossbackism or high
taxes a tenth as much as from , bud
roads. The country and town sutler
equally. Public convenience, public
morals and the progress of thuj age
equally demand actiou. Let a call for
a road convention be issued and circu

A Sclentlflq Achievement That May Come
to' Post In tbe ISfture.
Wo can writ by electricity, can
send pictures and designs by tho
Bamp agency and talk to our friends
at a distance by means of tho electric,
wire. "When the British association
visited Newcastle, Professor Perry
told his.auditors. that seeing by elec
tricity was a possibility of tho fu
ture, and he had shortly "before
drawn a. picture of -scientific achieve
ments which, would, enable menus
divided by. Jarge continents, and
oceans not only to ialk with each
other, but to look upon their fea
tures. Even before that Professor
Bell is known to have been at work
in his laboratory endeavoring to
solve tho problem, and though 10
years have elapsed since tho possi
bility of; applying the well known
principle's of light in tho same way
as the principles of sound.havo been
applied in tho telephone was first
suggested, the professor is still as
hopeful of successna ever.
There is no theoretical reason why
light may not be conducted in tho
same way as sound, but Professor
Bell tells us that it will be very
much more difficult to construct an
apparatus for the purpose, owing to
tho immensely greater rapidity with
which the vibrations of light take
place when compared with the vibra
tions of sound. The difficulty, how
ever, is merely one of finding a dia
phragm sufficiently sensitive to re
ceive these vibrations and produco
tho corresponding electrical vibra
tions, and it is encouraging to have
it on the authority of such a man as
Professor Bell that at least a dozen
men, eminent in science in various
parts of the "world, are at present en
gaged in endeavoring to find the so
lution of this problem. Professor
Bell himself, who has never ceased
to grapple with the difficulty, can
didly admits that up to tho present
his labors have been in vain, but he
is full of hopefulness as to the suc
cessful issue of his own research as
well as that of the other scientists
who have taken the matter up.
