Tim llloomirigton Advocate opened
Its editorial put'" .last wcel with the
suggestion that nil party news bo
eliminated until aftet the nomination
of the presldenlal candidate and then
filled a column of political observa

Tlicic Is one thing which the Chief
does not like with inference to com
mencement exercises. Tlieie is an
omission ofull proiston for partici
pation by tho alumni of the school.
The alumni of the high school alteady
exceed in numbers the uudcrgi aduates,
aud tlie commencement season .should
be an occasion for them to assemble
and by their participation, unite the
past, the future and the present in
terests of the school together. Theie

two ini'n, high in olTice aud iu tho es

be hulling uncomplimentary remarks
at each other which would oidluarily
be expected from a couple of quarrel

not bo surprising if ihou and of soil

enjoying tho respect mid confidence of

The liist pait of the evening was con

five or thirty of these, and each specta

gave ilso to much animated conver

and a musical contest followed.

Hy far tho largest purl of tho ass nib

A Word Of
The old council has passed into
history and a new a drninlstratlon has
resumed the inunngHiiiont of the city's
affairs. There Is one tiling for which
the out-going adminUI ration deserves
ciedlt. Tho sheets or tlie city liue
never been In such good coditlou a'
the beginning of the year us they aie
at prchcut. Notwithstanding the
abundant shown of the winter and the
amniiiitnf water from thosprltigthuws,
tlie grades of the streets have been
maintained and the middle of the
street has been high and dry. What
work was done on the streets last year
was well done There was not the
waste of labor and money that have so
often attended street grading iu the
past. Tho new administration will
find something to perserve mid enlarge,
not something washed away and to be
done over again.
Another thing to bs credited to the
out-going administration is the fact,
that, notwithstanding the necessity
of purchasing additional engines and
machinery, the debt of the city has
not been sonsibly increased. So far
as the financial affairs of the city go,
tlie'relirlng mayor and council have
deserved well of the pcoplo.

the price you feel you can afford to spend.
I We have worked hard to solve this matter (or our customers and are ready to say to
you that this year's showing of fine clothes, piece goods, furnishings and footwear, moderately
