THE WEST SIDE' this vicar- usincss
E C PENTLAND, Publisher
FRIDAY MARCH 21 I81K).
Let no jealousy stop our pros
The railroad from llillshoro to
Astoria is to be completed by le
waik 1S90, If men atul money
can do it
Let the good news go abroad,
that tho West Side railroad is to Ih
extended through from Corvullis to
Ir all the gravel for the Astoria
and also the Corvallls railroad is
taken out here at Independence,
how many meu will it employ t Say
there are three trains per day, will
it not require two hundred men.
Thi steel rails for the motor line
harebcen ordeml. As mm as poa
Bible the ties will be cut, and with
in sixty days look out for an ex
cursion over tho new railroad.
The people of Independence only
"talk1' nothing i being done there.
The energy displayed by the
teachers in the State Agricultural
College is to be commended. The
Institutes already held have been
of great value and farmers who
have attended one institute are en
thusiastic in helping get up the
next one. There were some excel
lent papers read here last week, and
we only regret that we could not
give our readers the papers in full
but space would not permit.
If Independence was not on the
Willamette river we would not
have any gravel buak, and if we
had no gravel bank we would not
have from one hundred and fifty to
two hundred men at work here,
which will be the case in a few
weeks. Two gravel trains will be
put on, some say to gravel the As
tori road and also the Corvallis
extension. We do not "whoop
up" our town like some papers but
"we get there just the same.''
We gave last week a plaus
ible reason for the mud slinging of
tho (JtWrw, basing our assertions
on reports as given us; but .Mr,
Snyder denies the charge. Then
we are to understand t hat it was
"pure cussedness," for ho now has
not even the excuse, that as La
Fayette peppered to him he now
wants to get "even" on Indepen
dence. How some men will jump
out of the frying pan into the fire,
They get badly burned too.
The republican party has a bill
formulated which while it may
not suit all the people, still
Hhows that party to be true to its
promises. Increase of duty on an
article which needs protection
means a reduction in
the revenue, and a reduction of the
duty on an article like sugar, means
a reduction of the revenue, because
sugar cannot be produced in Amer
ca. For the same reason tea and
coffee are on the free lists. The in
crease on tin plate is to encourage
the development of American
mines. It might be as well for the
government to offer a bounty on
American tin, but as all exported
tin, is rebated, the weight of the
increase is scarcely felt.
When you look at the future
prospects of a town you generally
ask, Xnt have you in view to
eause the prosperity of which you
spenkt In Independence the first
enterprise which (tils us with pride
is the new suw mill. It is one of
which we may well feel proud. It
Is now giving employment to about
forty men in building, and when
iu operation will give continued
employment to quite a number of
men. lint thin is not all. With
iu thirty days active operations
will commence on the motor line
which will em ploy a largo force of
men, and about the same time the
Southern Pnoiflo will begin opcr
uting gravel trains which will em
ploy more men stilt. Hut this is
uot nil. From the mt iiiforuia
tion at hand now at least sixty
wooden buildings and live bricks
will he erected. The Independence
National Hank will spend 112,000
in their bank building, which will
bo erected where Mrs. Hurley now
has her millinery store. The
plans show an elegant structure,
Hut this is uot all. This summer
there will I built a 120.000 school
house. This year will see a Ami
class electric light plant ami Itetter
water works. A (louring mill is to
be erected so we are told. We also
predict that the railroad to Mon
mouth, if tho people show a desire
for It, will Iki continued to Falls
City. Whenever these enterprises
start others follow and the proa
pects here are for a lively summer.
IWr growl! Pont be jealous of
your neighbor. If in this town
your property has doubled iu price
in oue year are you not HutHied?
We heaid a gentleman berating our
public spirited citizens who are
building the motor line railway to
Moii'iiouth. ''It is nothing but
scheme to make money." Well
bless your soul! what did you think
tt was! Do you tuink any sane
man is going to invest from '.'.",
000 to 10,000 in land and then
spend f-'0, 000 more in building
railroad to that land and do it all
for your profit? If land prices are
too high all you have to do is sell
yours at half what you know it is
worth. If you hold your land at
double hist years price, you hav
no right to growl. Tho Wnst Si m.
believes that every erson touch
ing property in Independence thi
year will realize handsomely, and
w e, above all things, are triad to
know that those who show their
"faith by their works" will all get
wealthy. Of course some who have
never sown w ill reap also, but you
can generally trust that those who
are loo hoggish in holding real es
tate will be the losers in the long
run. It is better for a man to sell
an acre of land now ut 100, which
only cost fiO, because more people
will become intereHted iu the town
than to hold it for fciOOeven twelve
mouths hence. Keep real estate
moving at a small profit, and in
stead of begrudging your neighbor
the money he is making, invest and
make some yourself.
8 1 . . -
Whex Independence talked of a
railroad to Monmouth all kiuds of
fun was made of it, by the Dallas
organ, and even more so when
was talked of extending it to Falls
City. It is now generally conceded
that the road will be built to Mon
mouth and more than likely will be
extended to the Kails. Now Dallas
proposes to build a railroad and it
miirht be expected that we will
pour cold water on the project.
We are not that kind. The build
ing of that road 24 miles will not
come in conflict with the building
of one from here of twelve miles.
If Dallas can raise 2f0.000 to build
a road it will show that an invest
ment of half the money, to tap the
same country and also the Big
Luckiamuto will pay immensely.
So that instead of being jealous of
our neighbor we shall wish them
the very greatest success.
The Portland World last week
had an able editorial written upon
the solution of our mixed assess
ment laws. After reviewing the
situation it goes on to show that
if our assessor were better paid and
had more experience the people
would be better served. It then
goes on to reccoinmend that our as
sessor be appointed by the state.
That not being dependent upon the
vote of the taxpayers he would
more carefully attend to his duties,
At first this looked very plausible
indeed and it seemed just the solu
tion of one fpart of the problem.
Difficulties however present them
selves. Would not the appointees
be more apt to be controlled undu
ly than tho elected one! Could not
frauds creep into our assessment
then, even more than nowi ine
man whom the people elect will be
more apt to do their will, and "we
the people" are to rule Oreogn, not
thegovenor or his friends.
Tho following petition is being
circulated in every state in the
Union: To the senate and house
of representatives, in congress as
sembled: Your petitioners,
Would respectfully represent that
our present American orthography,
though much improved within the
last huudred years, is cmnlier
some, illogical, unhistorical and
misleading; that millions of do
hirs are wasted, each year, in writ
ing and printing unnecessary let
ters, while the progress of our
children in their education is
greatly retarded by the dilllculties
in tho way of learning to swell,
Your petitioners recognize the fact
tha in the future, as in tho past,
changes in our written language
must be made by gradual steps,
The modifications herein suggested
have the endorsement ot the highest
like quartette, coquette, cigarette, etc.
