The commission took Into consider-

May, I DOS, assuming to vacate all the
Streets la the city asked for by Ue
railroad company, no notice was given
property owners interested In the pro-
posed action, and no damages were
awarded or appraised upon property
that suffered by reason of such action.
The order of the commission holds
that the ordinance was of no effect,
and that the streets involved were
never legally closed.
It would be hard to over estimate
the value of this order of the corpo-

President Taft altogether fails to un-

and growing displeasure of the people
with bis administration. His speech*
at the Republican Club banquet Sat-
urday night was a cry of alarm, unmis-
takably It was that. But It was also
an attempt at justification, and In that
his failure was so diaastrous that he

What Is It that blinds the eyes of

one of common morality? The people

eral law*, but tbe false pretenae, the
broken pledge, baa faith, these are
faults In honor which they perceive aa
quickly a* anybody, for tbe moral
aenae la primary and universal.
Carl Schurz uaed to aay that, while
political argument and appeal often
lett an audience unmoved, be never
tailed to carry bia audience with him
on a moral iaaue If he could put it
clearly before tbem.
We need not tell Mr. Taft, for he
knowa It already, that tbe broken tar-
iff pledge of hi* party hat been brought
within the clear apprehension of the
people. No truth in our political his-
tory waa ever better known.
Hia party and he appealed for tbe
votes of the people upon the promise
that the Dlngley tariff should be re-
. vised downward; we repeat, revised
downward. He made that promise
many times, as a candidate pledging
hla personal faith that the party’s
promise should be kept. The votes
were given, hla party triumphed, he
waa elected. The promise waa not
kept; Mr. Taft and the Republican
leader* have deceived the people.
Feeble, Faltering Defense.
What does It avail him now, what
has It availed him since the Winona
speech, to repeat his feeble, faltering
defense of that dishonorable decep-
tion? Flfteeen million voters cannot
be lied to and not find It out. Un-
doubtedly Mr. Taft believed the pledge
would be kept. He did not then
consciously deceive the people. But
on that day last September when be
abased himself to declare, as he de-
clared again Saturday night, that the
Aldrlch-Payne tariff is the “best cus-
toms law that has ever been iiassed”
the country learned with deep regret
and concern that It must revise its
judgment of the character and moral
tlbre of its President.
That is why Ohio, his own state, is
in grave danger, that Is why in every
slate, from the Ohio border west to
the Pacific, the party Is rent with fac-
tional discord; that is why the Republi-
cans, In all probability, are to lose the
next fall’s elections their majority in
the house of representatives. How dif-
ierent today would have been Mr.
Taft's standing before the people if
with the courage of a man, he bad
vetoed the bill and denounced the
treachery that shaped it.

FROLIC CALLED OFF.
The frolic to be glvea la hi
the visit of the
Modern Woodcraft, Chaa. K.
has been postponed indefinitely owing
to the unexpected recalling of the lec-
turer to Indiana. Tbe local Wood-
men are greatly dlaappotatad at not
being able to entertain Mr. Whalaa at
this time but hope to be able to an-
nounce hla arrival at a later date.
Mr. NaDle Clem came In from East-
ern Oklahoma yesterday and spent
last night with bis slater, Mrs. L. R.
Downer and husband. He left today
for his home in Beaver couaty, and
was accompanied by bis mother, Mrs.
A. W. Clem, and slater, America, who
have been here since last October at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Downer.
A. W. Brier, who has been running
a livery stable at Buffalo for some
time, has bought the Palace livery
barn in this city and took possession
this week. Mr. Brier is an experienced
man in this line and will doubtless
give the public good service.

his partner, Jo K. cilrane, of Leb-
anon, Mo., we la our c«*y last Sat-
urday talklfkg up a caduiug factory
proposition for Mooreland.
The first step Is to ascertain if the
tnrmers and people of the vicinity
w..l interest themselves sufficiently
to plant and tend the vegetables the
company want to can, and for that
purpose the gentlemen have arranged
for a meeting of the farmers to be
held In Mooreland, Saturday, Keb. 19.
hvery tarrncr in the vicinity is urged
iO be present and learn the propo-
sition. The promoters claim there is
much valuable tomato land here that
will make the farmer from 975 to |85

sures the market. Mooiemnd Leader.

This is your chance. Make an in-
vestment that will bring you the
greatest results in value—in satis-
faction. You will not only reap
the dividends now but also next
season and next winter. These
styles will be as good next winter
as now. But come quickly—the

first—-so come while the picking’s
