simple, costs nothing and will do much
good. This is for residents of this state

fight over the speakership,
For a number of years Federal Grand
juries received very little attention from
the public generally, but during the past
two years they have been recognized as
one of the prominent factors of our government.
While President Roosevelt is a fighter,

Another year should not pass without
a large vinegar fao'.ory being established
in this city. The question received con
siderable consideration from the fruit
growers and business mon of this section
several months ago. Such a factorv
would furnish a market for such of our
fruit as is not marketable. As our or
chards become older and the fruit indus
try grows the vinegar business would
naturally grow with it. The pure food
law eliminates the competition of acid
products and makes tne manufacture of
pure fruit vinegar more profitable than

Few people yet real'ze the power of the
individual citizen whereby he can solicit
the aid of his fellow voter in this state.
This was made manifest yesterday by a
prominent business man of this city stat
ing that he in principle was heartily in
favor of the legislature creating a rail
road commission. But judging by our
past experience ho was afraid that the
powers given such a commission would
be so constrained that 1'ttie benefit would
be the result. This gentleman d,d not
lake into consideration the power of the
people. If the legislature should create
such a commiision with limited authority,
the people thru the initiative could easily
increase these powers and in view of tins
fact if a commission is created al this
session reasonable power will doubtless
be given. If the people really insist upon
such a cummiss:c;n and the legislature
does not provide one, the people can pass
such a law. From litis time on the peo
ple of Oregon have no rta-iun to cunpiuin
of either goi.-d or b.id laws, he people
are the lawmaking po.ver in Oicm i'misi
