Our local water compariy, who is en- gaged in the Supreme Court in trying to raise the water rates, is taking upon themselves much glory over the heroic effort made by hundreds of laborers, who were on their pay roll it true, to save the water system during the recent flood.

Antl worst of all, it seems to us, is the fact that reliance on the "soltkl Democratic South," speak- ing Of votes, now proves our Southern Demo- drats have been too long used as southern ivory- tops.

So it does seem that as a public utility the law hould not only guarantee returns on their investments, but like- wise should make such cbrporations guarantee their service and certainly the high-priced effi-- ciency experts who have permited this pumping station to be expbsed to the dangers of floods are not entitled to a financial return or praise whatsoever. But rather they should be held re- sponsible for the permanent efficiency of their harmony with object of public utility corpora- tion, who are supposed to serve all the people all the time in return for their guaranteed divi- dends, t F. o- A TRAINING IN TOLERANCE. Never in the history of this country have its Catholic citizens aided or ant-agonized a presi- dential candidate because of his religion. In every presidential campaign since the days Washington Catholics have been found among the followers of the several candidates. That has been*more noticeable, but no more true, since the CiviI War, because within the last sixty years the Catl'[olic population has grown from four or five to full sixteen per Cent of the whole num- ber. In the very latest presidential campaign, when three candidates were competing, there were Catholics among the supporters of each of them, notwithstanding tl e charge that one of the parties had affronted them. The politicians know very well that there is no "Catholic vote" in the United States; and sometimes they act as if there were no Catholic citizens and taxpayers here, either.

All undesignedly the tyrants who arre' martyr- fng Mexico have given a proof at once of their Contempt for t.h eprinciples of ji stice they invoke so often and of the low esti,mate they place on the intelligence of those who witness their ac- lions. The proof is found in the e: planation which Calles Offers for the deportation of eight @atholic bishops from the land of their birth and citizenship. It ought to deprive him of every
