Such ehnnffe i* n matter of detail only. The queKtion now to he considered, we quite agree, with our neighbor is the securing of a larger interest and support for the organization. According to a statement by Secretary MacRae, the income of the board has fallen away to about $150 a month — hardly enough to pay the rent and the salary of the secretary. Admittedly this is a condition that is deplorable and something must needs be. done to improve it. It cannot be urged that Bakersfield's citixen* are niggardly in the support of any public or quasi-public institution, but it is still a fact that such an important orirani/a- tion as the Board of Trade is not the support that it de- who an? themselves acting iujfoii official capacity.

This being true, anything that will tend to add interest to the work of promotion is to he emi- sideri'd. It is not 1<> Ihc discredit of anyone, that a ^reat many bus- incNS men in the community do not take Hie Board of Trade seriously. That is an admitted fact, or if it he doubted, the most eas- ual iii(|iiiry will prove the statement. This IMMUJT true, it, is somewhat diflieult to do missionary work for ne\v subscribers that the body must have, if the coirmmni- ty'M work is to be prosecuted successfully. Under t hesc circumstances, many dti/ens believe that in the scheme of reorganization it would be wise to place the hotly upon u new footing by chan'uin^ its name. Such change would not mean that the scope of the work to be done would be in anywise different, and it* the same interest can be developed in the Board of Trade as it now exists, us cjni be brought about under a of Commerce as is proposed, ther would of course he no necessity] for a change, or even for any su«r-| gestion for re-or^ani/.ation.

In thc investigation into the cause of the death of Chief Biggy, it developed nt the coroner's inquest on authority as hjgh as that of the acting chief of police that the dead chief was trailed about the city by hired detectives, and that lie had reason to believe that ' his life was in-danger. Not only thai but the acting chief testified that lie could say positively that Uiggy was in danger and that there were those who would stop at nothing to do him harm. a full investigation and will have it at the hands of the district attorney. That is well. It should conie irrespective of the wishes of anjj one. If men can be trailed about the city and their lives endangered, or even be made to 'believe that they are in danger, the jublic ought to know about it. 190 HAIR NATURAL:.v ABUNDANT. \Ticc I'ror o?
