A Plea for Hotter Roads.
Suvkr, Or., Feb. 28, 1SW.
Editor Wkkt Sidk: Having noticed.
in your paper from time to time com
plulnlH about our road-miiklng; but out
of It all very few ofler asuggentlon aa to
how to remedy the grout ditllculty.
Tho drat great difficulty comes from
the changing of supervisors every year.
In other words our road supervisor of
thin year may understand Ids business
and huve good work done, when next
year the county court uppolnts a man
that knows nothtug of road-making,
and he will proceed to uudo the work
tliut this yean man 1ms done; therefore,
how are we going to get good roads
under the present system of rond-mak-lug?
Irot two of the present road districts
bo made one; do away w lib tlm county
court apimliillng tho supervisors, ami
Instead let tho tax-payer of tha com
bined road d isl rids appoint a coin po
tent man, by a vote; pay hi in a salary,
and hire him by tho year to look alter
and have the road worked In tlio right
way to make roads,
After tha main muds aro well-graded,
aa they nearly all are at tho present
time, haul gravel where It la most
needed, and prooond In thla manner
from? far to year, making a solid and
everlasting road aa we go, Certainly
It could not l all doije In one or two
year, but complete It no matter how
small a piece. Let the hole and ruU
bo Ailed with gravel Instead of dirt.
Dave thla man on the road winter and
summer, to keep tho dllchc open mid
the water drained out of tho rula,
which will prevent them from cutting
out so deep a they do now.
Lei the road-tax be paid In money,
Give the road-man power to collect all
road-taxes lu his district, and with It
hire , men and team to do the work
t common wages, twelve hours con-
slltutlng a day's work.
You will hear men say, look at the
gissl roads to ire found In certain parts
Of tho Fast. It la a much easier mat
tor for those Eastern roads to be kept
In good hate, where they aro fronton
from four to six months In the yearand
cannot!, wear. Oregon ean never exjssct
to have audi roads a those the year
Let the people agitate the using of
wlde-tlre wagons; prohibit all four
horse hauls from U-Ing hauled on the
public, highways, aay, from the 1st of
November to 1st of April also, all
trucks, eta, that aro heavier than a
two-horse load, Tax-Pavkh.
An I'oseen Enemy
Is more to I dreaded Ihn an open and
visible one. That subtile and lurking
foe, which under the generic name of
malaria manifest Itself, wheu It
clutches us lu It tenacious grasp, In the
varlou forma of cl Ills and fever, bilious
remittent, dumb ague or ague cake, can
only be effectually guarded airalnst by
fortifying It insidious attack with
Hotettcr,i Stomach Bitters, a thorough
antidote to tho s.sou of miasma in
the system, and a safeguard agalast It
thoroughly to I relied upon. Io the
oyeut of a malarious attack, avoid
poisoning your system with quinine,
and use Instead this wholesome remedy

efficacious than any drug. Use tho

You Don't Say So!
Editor Wot Sidk: I noticed lit the
last issue of your contemporary an arti
cle that I amusing, it says that the
democratic central committee of Polk
county, has called for action among the
dcmis-rata. in my opinion ll will tke
a vast amount of urging to get the
democrat to Jump overboard a second
time In the political aea. Tho com
mittee should give them time to dry
themselves U-fore they call on them a
second time to Jump lor life. I waul
tocslllo the writer's mltid that he
can't possibly catch a man twice In the
same trap, without changing the bait
The democratic leader did well in ar
ranging their trap last campaign; they
fixed It so that when the anxious dem
ocrats thought they were In amis
reach of tho tempting bait It vanished,
all of a sudden, and dowu came the
trap, leaving them at the mercy of tne
trappers. The article state that there
Is many an old-time democrat who Is
pcrpleyttd and puzzled, and w ho hon
estly U-llevea that he has nowhere to
lay hla political head. Well, I should
smile! Another dose like the last pre-
scrlU'd and they on't have any head
at all; they will bo true types of democ
racy. The writer aays they will drift
luto ponullstlo folds. It seems as
though it would have beou Just as easy
for the writer to have said republican
folds hut the writer well-knew that
when a democrat Joins the republican
fold he will never return.belug the right
sort of a man, but If he Joins the pop
ulist fold ho will return at some future
time, all bedraggled, for It is simply a
machine to punish unruly democrat.
Thla In the reason, I suppose, the writer
put It populist fold, for there la where
ho wanted them to drift. The writer
says the ship Is already In dungerous
water. If this be so, It la an excellent
tlmo for the democratic party to show
their ability as sailors, to steer the good
shlp-of-state; but, alas, the good ship is
drifting Europwurds, and the latest
news informs us Unit there Is no hopes,
that the pilot la nursing hla pets, seem
ingly unaware of any danger whatever;
and the deck-hauds aro all asleep,
whilst the storm la raging without,
It is uot likely that this crew will
make a second voyage, for their motto
Is "Get aboard, turn her loose, let her
land where she may." The writer says
the good ship has already passed
through the tempestuous chutiuel.
am curious to know where the writer
got his views, It must have beeu from
the New York World, for the above
has a worldly sound. Ho says It is In
sight of the oten sea of prosperity.
Here, the writer has been wrongly in
formed; It Iirb just passed out of the
sea of prosperity, and now It is drift
ing lu the sea of adversity. The writer
also says the democrat lo party Is strain
ing every nerve to fulfill tts pledges.
We are avore, Mr. Writer, that they
aro straining something; they are like
the Irishman who swallowed the npplo
dumpling. He managed to swallow it
half-way down, by stralulng every
nerve be had; and while lying, almost
exhausted, be gasped and said, "Faith,
If I ever get out of this scrap alolve, I
will never load another twenty-two
palllier with a forty-four shell." And
Mr, Writer, I think this will bo about
the conclusion your party will come to.
Tbearlldo stales that tho drum-roll
calls rvciy democrat to tho post of duty,
and If ho ho a man and a patriot, he
will answer to the call. Thla same pat
riotic call waa made some tlmo ago,
and the people rcspmidod, and tho
musses hnve arrived at the conclusion
that If a man has to work for smalt
w ages, ami live on half-rations, lu order
to bo a democrat lo pal riot and have
promises of good things, and receive
them not, tho wisest thing they can do
Is to supisirt them not.
