Quite a number of our good sub
scriber friends have dropped in dur
ing the past week and paid their
. subscriptions to The Mail and re
ceived their numbers on our premi-
' urns. There are still many more
who have promised to call and take
a chance. Our premiums were on
exhibition in this city on circus day
" Saturday and many favorable
comments were made upon them
both as to their number, value and
their general usefulness. There is
. sot an article offered that is not of
moneyed value do trivial affaire
of little or no value. Subscribers
" are setting full value lor their
' money in the paper ' itself and in
addition to this are getting with
nt any additional cost a chance
to get a valuable premium for noth
ins. The inducements we offer
mrely ought to be sufficient to war
rant a hearty response.
The new publiohers of Town Talk,
Messrs. V. Huse & Son, have pur
chased the Klamath Falls Repub
lican. Our friend, Joe Pierce, of
the Klamath Falls Express, can
bow well presume that he will have
am adversary which will giye him
hot race but Joe don't care for
that he is too independent The
Republican ' was a cracking good
jMper under its former management
and if the new firm can improve
upon it as a general newspaper they
will have to rise early and stay at
their benches long after the shades
f night have gathered around.
No patriot is anxious for a con
linuance of war in the islands. But
to shirk our responsibilities there, to
mfuse to seek to make the Filipinos
of all names freer and better be
cause American ideas have been

and StripeB because an unsorupu
. Jous tribal leader who no more rep
assents the Filipinos than the lead-
era in a Kentucky feud represent
.America and Americanism this
would be to make a shameful com
- pact, indeed, not one to assure
. jteace, but to permit the forces of
anarchy and misrule to do their
worst unchecked Boston Globe.
The Pacific Democrat, a new
publication, printed at Portland,
has been received at this offioe. It
is published and edited by Thos.
and Milton Harlan, former owners
and publishers of The Medford
Mail. It is a well printed paper
and is filled with democratic argu
mentsooae of which we herewith
reproduce .which serves to show
how absurd Are the moutbings of
the Harlans :
"How much poorer will the peo
ple have to become before they be
iin to see that the gold standard is
capping the life out of finance?"
It will be weU to aay right here
that it will be sometime before the
people become "much poorer," and
the working people are not giving
themselves any uneasiness about
"the gold standard sapping the life
out of finance." This perfect satis
faction among the working people
is given by the fact that over the
entire land there is Bcaroely an idle
Iij another column of this paper
will be found a call for a mass
meeting of the citizens of Medford
and surrounding country. The call i
M made by Mayor Gilkey. The J
Importance of this meeting and its
objeot is many fold. Kduoation is
the the primary objeot and as such
every resident of this part of the
valley, in fact all the valley is, or
ought to be, t deeply Interested.
While it is true tbat Medford has
exoellont sohool facilities in her
public schools, Btill there is need of
higher educational advantages In
almost any community than those
supplied by the publio schools.
Very nearly all the parents in Med
ford are arranging to advance the
education of their ohildren in
higher branohes than are taught in
the publio schools. How much
better it would be for both ohildren
and parents if these advantages
could be given in our home town.
How much cheaper it would be for
us if this could be done and it can
be done if you parents will put your
shoulder to the wheel and with
your neighbor push tne present
academy project. We can have an
aoademy in Medford if proper in
ducements are offered. The time
to aot is right now. Grants Pass
is putting forth every possible effort
to Becure the aoademy. Wtih a
normal sohool at Ashland and an
academy at Grants PaBS the chances
for Medford to secure a like in
Btitution will be forever lost. The
normal school at Ashland is doing
for that town just what the proposed
academy will do for Medford peo
ple it, to a greater extent, with a
olass of citizens who are in every
particular desirable and in nearly
every case permanent Medford
cannot afford to allow this opportu
nity to secure an academy to be
lost sight of. Our town is fortunate
in being situated in the center of
the great Rogue river valley. It is,
perforce of geographical location,
destined to one day be a city of
many times its prestnt size, but we
people who are now active in ils
business and social circles cannot
afford to retard its sure progress by
placing stumbling blocks in the
path of its advancement. Let us
all get in and do business with this
proposition. Let the business man
who is ever keen to add to his daily
cash sales do something for this
cause, for surely his sales will be in
creased with more people to sell to;
let he who owns real estate contrib
ute larger than any one to the pro
ject, because, tbat with a well con
ducted and well maintained acad
emy here tho value of his lots and
acreage will be doubled. Let every
one. do a little something and the
project will be carried out. Th
mass meeting ought to be attended
by an immense crowd of enthusias
tic citizens.
The District Fair.
The district fair at Central Point
opened last Monday morning and
up to inursuay the gate receipts
were not Heavy, but yesterday a
larger crowd was in attendance and
it is expected that today there will
be a large crowd.
I be races are good and all who
attend seem well satisfied with
them and that they are honest no
one questions.
The display of fruit in the Da
vihon is excellent, there being
nearly every variety grown in the
valley well represented.
1 he ladies department is not as
well filled as usual this vear but
there are many excellent articles
mere are a number of verv
beautiful paintings displayed, also
a nne exhibition ot fancy work.
Much to tne dissatisfaction of
many there is no restaurant
lunch counter on the grounds.
Ice board of directors have been
kept busily at work attending to
the multifarious duties which their
offices require. They have done
everything in their power to make
the fair a success.
There is some good stock ex
hibited, among which are some fine
Jersey cows. These are owned by
Hon. J. J. Howser. J. G. Martin,
of Beagle, also has a fine yearling
calf on exhibition.
. The Mail's premiums, in charge
of E. E. Van Antwerp, are attract
ing as much attention as anything
on the grounds, and they are being
spoken of in very commendable
