To see the world's fair and walk

The county officials of Jackson

friends in the county one and a
half years ago else their election ' to
the several offices would not have
While this state of affairs
did exist eighteen months ago is it
not as unquestionably true that
many of their friends then are not
friends now? A friend is a friend
s long as he betrays not the con
fidence which you have invested in
him. Have the county officials
betrayed that confidence? If they
nave not then that friendship should
remain steadfast. If they have,
and you can prove it mind you,
never make an assertion you cannot
prove then they are traitors and
should be treated as such.
In the fail of 1JSU2 the officials of
Baker county caused a bridge to be
built and at a cost to the county of
from ten to twelve thousand dollars.
This was not in strict accord with
the wishes of the rasjority of the
taxpayers. They went before the
courts with the case and obtained
an injunction ordering the clerk not
to issue warrants in pavment of
same, and enjoined the treasurer
from paying them. The court held
that it could not limit the necessary
expenses of the county, but, that
the county could not go into debt
for improvements, such as the con
struction of buildings, bridges, etc.
How does this case fit Jackson
county? Are there not cases in
Jackson county which are identi
cal, only in the one respect that in
this county the warrants have al
ready been drawn? Is it not a fur
ther fact that several of our large
county script dealers, about the
time of the Baker county decision,

A guess by a gentleman of Mfd
ford, and ne in a position to be
quite acurate, places the probable
shipment of apples from this point
it from 50,000 to 75,000 bushels,
rleretofore the shipment of this
fruit has been almost wholly to
Washington, Idaho and Montana,
but this year the Oregon supply
will more than meet the demand of
these three states, as a consequence
Jtber markets will need be sought.
Apples have been shipped to a
point even so far distant as Phoenix,
Arizona, with good profit to the
shipper. Oregon apples, particu
larly those grown in the Rogue river
valley, are superior to those grown
in California and if placed in com
petition on any market would out
sell them. Our shippers have but
to widen their market to increase
the demand- Our apple crop this
year is exceptionally large ' and of
excellent quality and when once
placed on the market cannot fail to
bring a good price. Our pears,
prunes and peaches have already
proven their superior quality and
ready demand. Why will not pur
apples, which are of equally good
quality, be as readily sought? It
only remains for the shippers to put
them in a market where their true,
value will I appreciated.

a letter from Governor Norton asking
me president to' give Uib position on
fimbria matters, lr. Cleveland . has
sent the following:
Executive Mansion, Washington,
. Sept. 5,
W. J. Norton;
Bkar Sir I hardly know how to ror
ply to your letter of the 15th instant.
It seems to me that I am nlainlr od
'cerning tho financial question.
the presidency, when read in connection
with the message lately sent to congress
in extraordinary sosaion, appears to me
(o be very explicit.
I want a currency that is stable an
safe in the hands of our people. I wiii
not knowingly be implicated in a condir
tion that will justly make mo in tba
least degree answerahlo to any labort-r
or farmer in the United States for an
other shrinkage in the purchasing power
of the dollar he has received for a full
dollar's worth of the product of his toil.
I not only want piir currency to he of
snch a character that all kin-is of dollars
will he of equal purclinsing power at
home, but" I want it to 15 of snch achar
acter as will demonstrate abroad onr
wisdom and 'good faith, thus placing
upon a firm foundation onr credit among
the nations of the earth. I want onr
financial conditions and the laws relat
ing to our currency to be so safe and r
pssnrin.q that those who have money wil
cpend it and invest it in business am
new enterprises instead of ho!:iing it,
You cannot cure fright by calling it
foolish and unreasonable, and you canr
not prevent a frightened man from
hoarding his money.. I want good, sound
and stable money, and a condition of
confidence that will keep it in nsu.
"Within the limits of what I have writ
ten I nm a frieM of silver, but I believe
that its proper place in onr currency can
only lie fixed by the readjustment o? our
currency legislation and the inaugura
tion of a consistent and comprehensive
financial scheme. I think such a thing
cm only be entered upon profitably aud
hopefully after the repeat of the law
which is charged' with all our financial
woes. Ju the present state of the public
imnU this law le built upon nor
patched in such way as to relieve the
I r.m, therefore, opposed to the free-
and nnlimited coinage of silver by this
country alone and independently, and i
am in favor of the immediate and un
conditional repeal of the purchasing
plr.nse of the so-called law.
I confess that I am astouivhed by the
opposition in the senate to such prompt-
action as would relieve the present un
fortnnate situation, ily daily prayer is
that the delay occasioned by such oppo
sition may not be the cause of plunging
the country into deeper depression n
it has yet known, ad tbat lha
erotic party may not bo held retponsiUe
for such a catastrophe. Yours very

n. Ccicii. It was he woo was so
smooth and glib c tongue as to inter
est several of our people in a now pro
cess for reducing refractory ore, and
very cheaply. He preyed upon the
kindly indulgence of oar people to the
extent of persuading them to invest
money in a stamp mill, which wag l just across tho railroad track from
where the A. A. Davis flouring mill
now stands. After the machinery had
been-purchascd and the mill erected
Chick and his process failed to mate
rialize and those who invested were
beautifully left, as his process was only
an imaginary one and intended for no
other purpose than to defraud. He
made liit'.e or nothing out cf his Med
ford d-al but at Redden he flojced on
man out of 15,000 on the same propo
sition. From California he went to
Kansas and this is what tho telegraph
dispatches say of him there;
ToPEKA. Kan., Sept. . At the
meeting of th-j stockholders of tho
Chick Short Method Silver Smelting
Co. heid last night it was decided to
close up the affairs of tho concern in
the best and quickest inann-:r. 1 be
present management has discovered,
it is believed, that the assetts of the
cempany will be sufficient to pay all li
abilities without anv further cssess-
ments on the stock. At this meeting
was read the firs; accurate report ever
made of reducing refractory and worth
less ore by the Chick process. It is on
this report the presaul action is basrd.
George . tui.'K came from Califor
nia about three yeura ago and by his
representation cf the matter induced
capitalists iu Omaha and many cities
in Missouri and Kansas to take stock
and build a smelter. Pittsburg will
ingly gave land and erected the neces
sary buildings, and Chick began wbat
the stockholders now denounce as a
swindle. When sales of stock would
diminish he would declare a dividend
of 5 per cent a month, which nover
failed to bring more cash.
The charges made against him and
his officers are numerous and grave and
an officer is now on the wav to Wyo
ming to bring him back fur trial on
the charge of swindling. Othercharg
es will be lodged and papers issued so
that should ho escape punishment un
der one he will have to meet others.
The glosing up of the business will bj
slow because Chick and his secretary
have carried tho books to some other
state, making it very difficult to obtain
a correct statement of the a if airs of the
it was shown at this mooting that
Cbipk began his famous career with
this Ltmous company without a dollar.

The Eugene Register estimates, the
bop crop of Lane county this year at
5,000 bales, valued at $150,000, and tho
Eugene Guard claims that Lane county
produces more hops than any other
county in Oregon. We believe these
estimates are substantially correct.

the hop prop of Oregon this year will
amount to 40,XK) to (10. 000 bales, valued
at $1110,000, estimating at 40,(4)0 bales

Referendum and Initiative.
k "I ieo a great deal about referendum
and initiative in some of our papers.
Is it a new kind of a law, or what is It?"
Thcso arj terms that a certain party
have use for in advocating certain re
forms. The right of referendum is the
right of the people to vote on any law
that 'comes before the legislative bodies
of tha country, where the right is ac
corded, before final action is taken.
The right of initiative is the right
of any people to call upon the legisla
tive bodies to pass certain laws by vote.
There are various opinions about the
wisdom of these laws, which it is. not
our province to discuss. It throw tho
