to specifications, but that fact
does not justify the property own-
ers saddling the whole amount on
the city. Let us come to some
equitable middle ground concern-
ing it. My idea would be to have
the property owners of District
No 3 appoint one of their number,
the city at large another repre-
sentative citizen, anci the two
choose a third, and let the three
decide what part of the pav-
ing the property owners are equit-
ably liable for and what part the
city as a whole should assume,
and let the decision of that board
be final and all parties abide by

THE RAINBOW TRAIL
William Farrum, starring in
"The Rainbow Trail," is the stellar
attraction at the Liberty heatre
today. This film is replete with
tense and thrilling situations and
proves that Farnum is easily the
greatest delineator of Western
types now playing before the cam-
The story is a sequel t0 "Riders
of the Purple Sage," but those
who did not see that picture will
in no way be at a loss in viewing
"The Rainbow Trail" as the inci-!
dents in the later production are j
all in a separate form.
Mr Farnum is again seen as
Lassiter, the feared rider of the I
range and the terror of the Utah
border. Indeed, this sterling play-
er portrays tw0 roles in "The Rain
bow Trail," that of Lassiter and
of Shefford, who searches the
mountains for the girl he loves.
There is every indication that
thevaluation of personal property
in Norman and Cleveland county
will be materially less in 1919,
than it was in 1918, owing t0 the
large amounts of Liberty bonds
taken in the several "drives."
Those bonds are not taxable, and
take just that much from the tax-
j able wealth of city and county,
i In view of this fact, is it not un-
! wise to add to the debt of our city
and cause an even heavier tax rate
than at present?

The scenery is not the whole
thing in this picture, however, as
