Telephone Main 31 MONDAY, DKCK.MBKK 14, 1908 SHOULD BE ABOLISHED. Tin 1 Democratic state platform contiiiiiK n pledge to abolish the race truck evil, hut iiHi<lc from all political promise, the legislature should take up this matter in nil good faith, mid put an end to what is one of the most demoralizing institutions in the state. Hardly a day passes that the newspapers do not relate the story of some unfortunate whose undoing is traceable directly to the race track gambling. Only last Friday it developed that an Oakland man, a trusted cashier of a big department store was $20,000 and when pressed for an explanation, he admitted that the ffiftney. bn4 been squandered on the races. - Every influence of the race track is bad, and there is nothing to be said in its favor. It is not expected that the legislature will take up and carry through this needed reform, hut in the interest of the state, it should do so. - «-*-• -- ,~ THE POLICE WAY. Just now the police and some of the newspapers in San Francisco are busy convicting n man mimed Wilson for sending poison through the mail and so bringing about the death of one Boas. The accused may be guilty, but it is absolutely certain that none of the facts so far made public is eonelu- give, arid certainly they do riot justify the sensational head lines in the papers. A handwriting expert declares that the writing in a letter sent to Boas through the mail is Wilson's. But handwriting experts have been so often mistaken their testimony is now gi%'en but little credence and aside from this there appears to be j nothing against the accused, nothing that will be 'admitted as evidence in court. Once the police suspect a man of crime, their investimitii'ii proceeds not nti lines to ascertain whether lie is innocent or guilty. but lire all based mi tin- supposition that he is guilty. And they have willing aids in the sensational news gatherers. DEAR Monday, TOM:- Dec. 14 Gruenhagen's candy. At Meroney's. Best made--th« more you have the better you llKe it. Try a box tonight.

Good Cough Medicine For Children. The season for coughs and colds Is now at hand and too much care cannot be used to protect the children. A child Is much more likely to contract diphtheria or scarlet fever when he has a cold. The quicker you cure hla cold the less the risk. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy Is the sole reliance df many mothers, and few of those who have tried It are willing to nee any other. Mrs. F. F. Starcher of Rlpley, W.
