While all Catholics have a great
amount of reverence for their
church and the Pope, the latest
edict from the high ruler and
church officials, to the effect that
Catholics are forbidden to unite
themselves with any secret society,
is not received with especial favor
by many church members in the
United States. As many Catholics
in America are prominent members
of our best and- most popular 6ecret
societies, and by so becoming they
are apparently none the less loyal
to their church and its dictates, but
instead, by admission to them are
made better men among their fel
lowmen and better citizens gener
ally, in any country or community,
it is difficult to ascertain', with any
degree of satisfaction, where the
harm is either brought upon them
selves or the church.
Someone has circulated the re
port that the publishers of this
paper were working in the interests
of one of the two tickets recently
nominated to fill the several city
officers. And again someone else
said we were working for the other
tieket. In the minds of some of
means for the purchase of his bread
and clothing. "The land in Jack
son county is almost useless, owing
to the sticky nature of the soil." Not
one twentieth part of the land in
Jackson county is "sticky soil," and
even this is as productive as are
any lands in the United Stales or
England. And here is another
quotation fro.n the letter : "A public-school
man thinks he' will come
here as a farm laborer. lie dops
so, and his life is worse than
that of a crossing-sweeper in
England. There is- no one of
his rank of society here." "A
public-school man" in America
is just as good a man as a crossing-sweeper,
but he isn't any bet
ter so long as both are honorable
and act like men. That is where our
Americanism developes itself to ade
gree most pleasant to all lovers of
free and equal standing and rights
so long as we act honorable, the
one toward the other. "There is
no one of his rank of society here,"
is good, and the writer is correct in
the assertion. ' When brainless
English nabobs come to this
country with the expectation of
lording over the entire country they
get "beautifully" and deservingly
sat down upon we are not that
class of people. If England has
men of ability and good sense
which can be spared America will
furnish them a business proposition,

- The Georgia senate has passed a
bill making it a penal offense for
any person to make any remarks
or write articles that reflect upon
the good name of a woman. The
bill calls to mind that in the old
days there were laws against scold
ing and tattling, as well as laws
against slander, and that the duck
. insr stool was hieh in favor as an
inducer of polite conversation.
Os o"E of our inside pages will
pe found a communication trom a
citizen of. Jacksonville upon the
abolishing of the Oregon State rail
road commission. The gentleman
asked The Mail for its opinion re
carding the subject. We refer him
to his own article with the margin
al note: "Them are cur sentiments,
too." And while we are abolishing
commissions why not do away with
a few more of them? Jf what earth

mission and the food commission,

and dollars a year salary from the
The. Mail turns another mile
post with this issue, the paper is
now on its seventh year, and a very
healthy and vigorous seyen-year-old
it is. It never stood upon a
more solid business footing than
right now a newspaper proposition
in the city of Medford is no longer
a speculation. We are now print
ing 1200 papers, actual count no
more, no less; just that number.
Our books are open . for inspection.
We make 110 promises for the fu
ture; we have never made any in
the past; we are willing that our
record for the past two years
should be our pledge for the future.
Sheriff Patterson's plums go
begging sometimes, and many of
these are times when they ought
not to so go, The heretofore cus
tom of sheriffs accompanying in
sane people to the asylum has
' been knocked out by Judge Neil,
An' act, on the judges part, which
' ought to' have never been perpetrat
ed. If the conveying of these people
. to the asylum is a snap sufficient to
untrue, are not
circulated with malicious intent.
Every man whose name appears on
these tickets is a professed friend to
us. We have nothing but kind words
for each and all of them. The peo
ple of Medford are equal to the oc
casion of electing the best men to
office, and inasmuch as the gener
al reputation of each candidate is
as well known to every voter of
this city as it is to us there is little
need of our attempting to foster the
interests of any of them.
There are Englishmen in Amer
ica who have made themselves rich
off the products of our soil and the
profits of our commercial advan
tages. There are as well English
men in America who have wallowed
in the slums of the gutters and
have experienced aught else than
the most extreme poverty. This is
equally true of all other foreign
subjects who have sought this land
as a means of pecuniary betterment,
nor are these facts less true of the
American , born. But when Eng
lishmen of no greater calibre and
means than one Elliott O'Donnell
visits this our . garden land the
Rogue river valley, and after
a few months hibernation upon
a farm, near Lagle Point, writes
a scathing letter to "Answers." a

ing that Oregon is the most poverty
stricken state in America, The
Mail can but, in justice to our un
usually prosperous state, brand
the writer a liar in his every utter
