THE ACT IS It is not so long in fact, just little over a year since the rail- way men were thundering against the Ijcmicux Act, and voting against of the government respon- sible for the Act. The attitude of the railway employees has undergone a remarkable change. The United Krothcrhood of Railway Trainmen m-et in Ottawa and they came to the conclusion that the Act was better than they had pictured in fact, with a few slight amend- ments, it could be made almost per- fect.

S. V. Davidor, of Portland, Who Swin- dled Montana People, Being Searched for in Canada (Great Falls'1 Tribune) S. V. Davidor, the Portland real es- tate man; who was indicted-by a grand Jury recently on "a charge of swindling people in Great Falls and elsewhere in the west, is a fugitive from" justice, having disappeared from Portland a few days ago. The Port- land .Oregonian says: "Canada's famous mounted police Is reported to be heating the brush bordering the line between the Unit- ed States and the Dominion in search of S. V. Davidor, late real estate pro- moter of Portland, and dealer in Lin- coln county farm lands, who became a fugitive from justice last Wednes- day afternoon. "In the belief that he may have taken the shortest route to a foreign land, the'Canadian police force was notified that a warrant had been is- sued for and his photograph has been supplied. The police force of Canada has been the recipient of several small favors at the hands of Oregon officials and has wired its in- tention of arresting Davidor if he set Pincher Creek is not standing still, f but is shar ng in the growth of south.

"Legitimate real estate dealers of Oregon are becoming greatly interest- ed in the suppression of agents and companies which may be engaged in illegitimate dealing In lands, and it is probable that a meeting -will be held to devise some plan of operat- tke i ing against them. What plan will be adopted has not been determined up- on, but influence of 'Davidor deals' ia said to have been perniciously felt in closing transactions this week. "That some protecting organization will be the outgrowth of this affair seems certain." Don't elect men to the city council because t-hey are personally likeable.
