the mayor should have put his foot
down and insisted on the acceptance
of this fair offer. It is not so essential
a to what party ksaccessfal at a local
election, but by having a anion ticket
without a contest, this boose busiaess,
this buying and selling votes, which is
a reflection oa our whole town aad a
disgrace to those who encourage it,
would be practically doae away with.
The office of water commissioaor is not
a political office in any sense. Even
if the pay attached to it is a little
larger than the others, experieace aad
fitness should count, not politics. The
republicaas were williag to give up
the satire political machinery of the
city, all of the appoiative offices, and
in the interest of good government the
democrats should have acquiesced.
We trust the 'voters will see it as we
do and prove it by their votes.
Two' objections' naturally suggest
themselves to the layman to Judge
Wood's sentence of Harry Orchard to
death, with a recommendation' of
clemency, on his plea of guilty of hav
ing ssmsBiasted former Governor
Steunenberg of Idaho. If Orchard
told the truth when he confessed, and
as Judge Wood professes to believe,
he should pay the penalty to the
utmost limit of the law. If his con
fessioas were distorted by personal
spite, he should be punished to the
extreme for his attempt to swear away
the lives of innocent men.
Judge Wood's recommendation of
clemency certainly lends color to the
charge nude in the Haywood and
Pettiboae trials that Orchard had been
promised immunity if he would turn
states evidence. While" this charge
was denied with much emphasis dur
ing the former trials, this apparent I
move of the court to come to the re
lief of Orchard will surely tend to
strengthen the suspicion that Orchard
was assured in advance the benefit of
the turncoat.
In summing up the case, Judge
Wood makes his recommendations for
clemency for Orchard appear some
what ridiculous by reviewing the
criminal career of the man, covering
many years aad including "a long'
series of the most atrocious crimes
committed by himself." Of course,
Orchard was not on trial for any of
the nets of homicide which apparently
formed his pastime, except for the
murder of Steunenberg, but his free,
if not boastful, confession of many
murders mark him as a nun dan
gerous to society who should on gen
eral priadples be' nude forever inca
pable of committing further crime.

is oval and smooth and hard and
elastic. This is the ideal road, and
nothing but a road properly made
with the drag, or aa asphalt road,
meets all these requirements.

so thoroughly in the last three years,
have published so many cuts of roads
made in this way, and have had such

Vertebras Classed as OMest Human
Remains Found In the Nsy WerM.
The oldest human remains on the
American continent have been discov
ered In the Argentine republic. Some
four or Ave rears. ago a vertebra was
dug up in the neighborhood of Monte
Hermoso and deposited In the museum
of La Plata. There It attracted the
attention of the director, a German,
Herr Lehmann-NItsche. He 'recog
nised it as having strong resemblances
to a human cervical or neck vertebra
and also some relation to the bones of
the higher apeswtthotot exactly corre
sponding with either.
Then he compared it with some other
bones in the collection, and the result
of his study was the hypothesis of a
new type, neither human nor ape, but
related to 'both. Tne curve of the
spine Indicated by the bones sug
gested an animal that walked upright,
but the sise and formation of the
bones nude it clear that the head
they supported was snull and light
with very small brain capacity.
The remains resemble certain bones
of a primitive race of men found In
Java more closely than any other non
hunun or near human specimens.
They represent altogether the oldest
type of humanity. If human they are,
