M cents a month; $5 a Year in Advance ALFRED HARREUL, Editor and Prop Main 31 MONDAY, JANUARY 4, 1900. HELP THE FUND. All should aid in swelling the land which is being raised locally for the benefit of the suffering from the Italian earthquake. The llamtty is the most stupendous fr the benefit of the sufferers long the survivors on the Island &f Sicily and in Southern Italy is beyond the power of imagination. Not only are thousands injured fcnd destitute of food and clothing lmt their homes are destroyed and iheir means oi' livelihood taken Jffopi them. Every industry in the Stricken land is detroyed. A vast producing region mined, and the is practically thousands of .homeless ones must be provided for. ;," This is a world wide task, anc ieontributions will come from every "nation. Hut an enormous sum will t>e needed to meet the require ments of the situation, and every •community should do its part. It is hardly necessary to urge Ba- kersfieldans to aid in the good MONDAY, JAN DEA TOM: I never grow tired of talKing about Gruenhagen's oandy because it Is such fine, delicious candy. I want everybody to Know how good It is. Get it at Meroney's. BILL. for pleasure driving, hut for heavy teaming as well. There is n lesson in this for every neighborhood. Nothing is more important to each and every interest in a given community than a. good road. The sooner permanent road building becomes the rule the better it will be for the public. If an African lion will just be wise enough to make a noise like a Panama canal when the proper time comes, it can escape safely while the intrepid hunter is nnlim- bering his vocabularly of invective.—The Commoner. m mm NOT SOLD m Tim Spellacy returned from Mid- work.

Though but little has been said of late about the necessity of' support for the Board of Trade during the coming year, the question 18 nevertheless one of paramount , importance. There will be much " work for an active commercial to do during the next twelve not know If H will," said Mr. Spel lacy. "Negotiations are still being have conducted but as yet no termination." Mr. Spellacy said ihat the chief worry of the Midway people now fs the water question. Overtures are being made to the Oregon-Midway, Standard, Union, Santa Fe and Southern Pacific to relieve the situation. , He said the Oregon-Midway thinks I that before very long their plant will 'again be in operation. The work of I starting up the new air compressor, , Mr. Spellacy says, will probably begin today. The company recently organized to supply water by way of ! the Southern Pacific tank line service Is one of the chief hopes of the Midi way men, said Mr. Spellacy. He Is - . . ^ .. - , . ., ... hopeful that an increased supply will ..months, but it cannot do it with- • Boon be niul out substantial backing from the business community, and now that the new year has begun, it is time that the membership list be increased to include all the. business' men in the two towns and that assurance be given of an adequate monthly income so that the hoard can prosecute its work elTeetively. Doubtless the call for th<' annual meet inir. wbieh Ifas heretofore been held in lleeemlier wii! be issued sunn, when plans can lie formed that will insure to the commercial body tile support that it has the riiihl to expect from the people. Whenever siicli call is issued, it is to be hoped that every citix.en will make himself a committee of one to at lend and l>y his presence give assurance of his good will to the directors to he elected and at the same time pledge support of u more sub«t»m- tial nature. Doubtless the time of the annual meeting will now lie willed "for an early day, and the Califor- liian sincerely hopes that there •Will be a large attendance and every encouragement given to the! organization.
