MJjMjfcTsMsVJMssssft Fitters RUMOR8 ABOUT LITIGATING THE CHARTER. Thnrft hav been rumors of late ihnt iiH!itlnn to defeat tho Greator Salem charter would be undertaken. Theea statements have heen mnue from time to time, but with no appar ent authority, but they roappear per sistently. W. H. Holmes was orlglnslly men tioned as the nttorno who Would bring the suit that would demolish the charter. But lie assures the ed itor of this' paper that he knows nothing of the proposed litigation and Is not engaged in tho rase. Judge Lord, who was justice of tho supreme court, governor and minis ter to Argentine, has boon mentioned as bringing tho sulL Ito tells Tho Journal editor such Is not the case; that thoro Is nothing to It, nnd ho hopes the matter will not bo brought up, Thci otonle will l) grntlflcd to learn that such nblo Jurists as W. TT TTnlrnaa nnil W P Inril rAtirrv sentlng opposite political parties, aro not ongnged In bringing on expensive litigation thnt would hamper the de velopment of the city. These gentlemen show nn element of practical common sense In not fomenting a lawsuit that would tlo up the city revunues and plungo the community In debt and Incroase tax ntlon. The spirit of the ablest and host lawyers Is not favorable to conten tions that make against tho oxpretsed will of- tho community, for If loft to a voto of Greater 8alera tho chartor would carry by a largo majority. Undor theso clrcumstnncos It Is creditable to tho Intelllgonco of 'our nblost lawyers that they hosltnto about Involving tho city In a contro versy that would accomplish nothing but stiifo and discord. Tho Journal has taken pains to trnoo down alt rumors and finds them without foundation, and thoro aro rea sons to hopo nnd bellovo no such lltlgntlon will over bo attempted. Tho movement to securo tho now charter wna started by tho old Citi zen's council nnd tho Commercial club, acting In unison. A commission of flvo members of the council nnd llvo members of tho Commercial olub, nil representative business men, was formed. This commission held sessions over a iwriod of several months, during which tluy publicly Invited cltlieus to appear bertiru them. This commission publicly asked nil Who were Interested to come before them, and giving uueli notice ro paatedly tlinmsti the press and nsr. sonnlly. the chnrter commission wade Its report This report was made first to the city council and then to the Com mercial club, nnd eaoh body made a few minor amendment nnd adopted in report of the commission.

A large audlenco of Salem society women, many of them members of the Salem Woman's Club, hoard tho lb sen play, "Ghosts." Score came nway shocked to the center of their being, unablo to get their breath over the stimulus and ex citement of "emancipation." It must be assumed that Ibsen writes about social conditions in Northern Europo, where tho dlstb- luto husband is the rule. Of course, thoie may bo husbands as debauched as Avellng In this play, and climatic differences may bring tholr secrot sins home to the family. Hut wo prefer to think society Is n little butter In tho aggregate than It is presented as being in tho drama of tho degenerate. 1 For ourselves, we prefor tho play of home life, the rural drama, with lots of love-mnhlng on the front porch, etc., etc., to "Ghost." Hut It must 'bo confessed as a "mOral shocker" and nwnkonor of tho thlnk-boxes of "goody-goody people, Ibsen Is a "crackerjack." keOTeaeee8e9t&9e&eeea f X-RADIUMS f & r950)xet9a Unn- mnnv nt tho lirnllttTTlH tOUChed mmn In tlia lhpn (Imtntl WOUld SlICll a nostrum as "Woman Suffrage" ever touch?

Food tnkon Into tho stomach which, from tho naturo of the food or the condition of the stomnch, Is not digested, Is worse than no food at nil. This Is a truo stntoment as far as It goos and a great many dyspep tics go only this far with their rea soning. They argue with thomsolvos that because their stomachs do not do the work glvon them, they must be given less work; In other words they must be starved. It would bo Just ns sensible for a businoss man who Is unablo to do all his own work to cut down his business to Jils own capnclty as It Is for a man to starve hlmsolf to rollovo his stomach. The senslblo business man employs help and goos forward with his businoss. LIkowIso tho senslblo dyspeptic will employ help for his stomach and give his body proper nourishment. Stunrt's Dyspepsia Tablets actually do tho work assigned to them. Thoy rollovo weak and over burdened stom achs of a groat portion of dlgestlvo action. Tholr component parte are Identical with thoso of tho dlgostlve fluids nnd secretions of tho stomach and they simply tako up the grind and enrry on the work Just tho same ns a good, strong, healthy stomach would do It.
