It now looks as though Harry

lum instead of the chair.
Bert Baker , Will Uhiitf and
John Crook were elected by

it rained. Now for the upbuild-

It is Mayor Barrett by 87 major ,
ily. Surely this is an endorse ,
ment of good government and
an economic administration.
We wonder if the News still
feels quite certain that Barrett
will do for mayor. It is a pe
culiar trait of some people to
always howl harmony but must
be consulted at all limes as re
gards the material used in the
erection of a palace to live in.
The Huilding it Loan associa
tion that was recently organised
in this city will be a great
factor in Palls City's growth.

The Indianapolis News has an
interesting article on the resus
citation of some canal projects
that were exploited long ago.
The canal lever preceded the
railroad fever many years , and
after having given way to the
latter , is now becoming active
again as a means of supplying
additional and cheaper trans
portation. The fact that some
of the canal projects of seventy
or eighty years ago are now
being revived rather tends to
show that they have intrinsic
Among the projects brought
before congress during the early
years of the internal improve
ment craze were for a canal
from Chesapeake Bay to Lake
Ontario ; a canal from the Illi
nois river to Lake Michigan ; a
canal from Lake Champlain to
Lake Ontario ; from Lake Erie
to the Wabash and Ohio rivers ;
from Lake Michigan to the Wa
bash river ; from Lake Michigan
to the Mississippi river ; from
Toledo , Ohio , to Lafayette , In
diana ; from Wabash river to
Missouri river ; from Chicago to
the Gulf of Mexico ; from the
Atlantic to the Pacific ocean :
irom Lake Michigan to the At
lantic ocean , and many others.
All of these projects originated
before the era of railroad building -
ing began , and they represented
the intense desire of the people
for better means of transporta
tion and the freight rates , which
were then excessively high.
Congress made large land grants
to some of them , and no doubt
they would have been completed
but for the ushering in ol tlu
railroad era , which soon occu
pied public attention to tlu
exclusion of everything else
Now that the transportatior
business of the country has out
grown the capacity of the rail
roads to handle it and freigh
charges are higher than the }
should be , canal projects an
again coming to the Iront. in
eluding some ot those that wer <
in favor two or three genera
tions ago. The days of publ'n
land grants for internal im
provements are passed , bu
there are indications that pres
sure will soon be brougbt t <
bear on congress for appropria
tions for canals.

County Board Meets.
The board of Supervisors are
in regular session this week and
are Cleaning up business at a
rapid rate. Nearly $8,000 has
been expended for the payment of
outstanding : indebtedness with a
few claims yet to hear from. This
would be an opportune time for
the board to note that the public
nuisance is still in existance just
west of the jail and to note the
fact that much smaller and less
able counties have long since
placed toilet privileges through
out their court houses. It may
be that we are toclose to Missouri
to be up-to-date.
