At an early hour people began arrlv
Ing and long before the time for the
procession to start tha streets were
crowded with team and the walk
lined with people. Out at the picnic
grounds, J. P. Irvine, Clodfelter Ilro.,
the Congregation church the Christian
church and two strangers had alaud,
there were two wlnfca several tent
show and all did a thriving buslncaa.
Promptly at 11:00 o'clock the pro-
iswslou started. I Damon waa in the
ead, the iukcr followed, and then
enmc the Cliy bras baud led by D. V,
Poling. The state liberty car was a
most beautiful sight, Mis Dora Cooper,
the goddess of liberty, looklug very
much a goddea, presiding over hr
foriy-four state. Over her head float
ed the star and stripe. Following It
came the Oregon car, Ml Bessie
Butler, representing Oregon and well
may our slate feci proud of lu represen
tative; Mis Alta l'jite, aa Justice,
clothed lit red and holding a pair of
scales; Mable Wells, a Peace, clothed
tu blue, and with a dove and laural
branch. There were the thirty-three
countle represented by little ouea,
dressed III white.
Then came the head of the fire
department and the fire boye. Hook
uud holder company No. 1 with their
apparatus gully decorated and little
Claudo Hubbard seated holding a
trumphet. O. Kennedy preceded the
company carrying a miniature ladder
with a crest of flags etc. Hose Co. No
1, In bright uniform had their carl
neatly ornamented and surmounted by
little Ethel Alexander a lu chief orna
ment, and hose Co., No. 2, with little
Pearl Kelly a goddess. The Independ
ence baud took part lu the parade.
Then came a few bicycles and the plug-
uglies followed. Thl feature created
much amusement. There were many
grotesquely dressed characters, and an
old tumbled down dray with the worst
looking horse obtainable and a baud
which uncle dixrdant music, but the
feature which attracted the small boy
wa a wagou wheel fastened on a log
one side dragging ou the ground, caus
ing It to revolve, aud ou It were perch
ed two maskers, who went round aud
round first up and then down.
Arrived at tbe grounds, after music
by the bras bauds, the chorus of voices,
led by 1). V. Poling sung "Niagara"
which wa loudly applauded. Rev, J.
It. Baldwin, delivered the invocation,
and after alnglng of "Star Spangled Hau
lier," by the choir; Uou. N. L. Butler,
of Monmouth, delivered the oration,
Hon. J. C. Moreland being unable to
attend on account of uo trains running.
He made a most patrotlo address, one
eminently suitable to the occasion and
which was one of the best speeches we
have ever heard tbe geutlemau make,
and considering the shortness of time
for prepratlon, wa remarkable. Mr.
Butler I a ready and. fluent speaker.
After another song by -the choir and
muslo by the baud the vast crowd
separated for dinner.
AVTKKNOON AND KVKNINO.
At entries were called for the
tug-of-wur between Buena Vista and
McCoy, and no one responding, entries
were asked for the tug between Mon
mouth and Rlckreall and also Dallas
and Independence, but still no response,
six men on a side were selected pro-
mlsclously, captained by Oeo. Slopcr
aud Jake FeUcr, three pull were ruude
and the third being a tie, and some of
the team of Mr. Fetzor's side refusing
to pull agalu Mr. Stupor's team wo
given the prize.
The barrel race wo then run, this
consisting of two barrel suspended
from a rope stretched between two
trees, aud the object being tu run a
short distance, crawl through a barrel
and run to the goal. It was one of the
funniest of proceedings and those who
where fortunate enough to see it enjoy
ed a hearty laugh. Oeo. Belt came out
first aud J. D, Stevens second. A
second race was given and . Emuiett
Htitata, of Lewlsvllle, came out first and
Clyde Turner second.
The crowd was so large that it was
Impossible to do anything with the
bicycle races ou the grounds so an
adjournment was made to Main street
for those races.
Iu the mcuutlme dancing had com
menced on the floor provided for that
purpose and under the inspiring strains
of Cressey's orchestra a crowded floor
of dancers kept up the amusement all
In the bicycle race there were five
enti les, the prizes being offered by O.
A. Kramer, the Jeweler. W. Davis, of
Salem, Luke Hawley, of Mouinouth,
C. Ilanseu, of Salem, W. D. Graves,
Cha. Stunts, of Independence. Messrs
Emuiett, Kramer aud Smith acted as
Judges, aud Lucas and Stiver, starter.
It wus almost impossible 10 keep the
crowd back, off tbe street and in the
first race Davis name out first and Luks
Hawley around, but Hawley claimed a
foul as he was crowded out by a marshal
who was trying to get the crowd to
stand back, so the race waa run over
again and Luke Hawley came out first
and Davis claimed a foul In the start,
so the committee gave each of them
price, It being a beautiful gold watch
Iu the hose contest, the first team to
ruu made tbe distance In 434 second
but failed to got the notxle coupled,
and the next team took flrat money
althouiih thiMr time was 601 aetxind.
The Hue of hose' wa then moved down
toward the sawmill and the people
shown the splendid work that can be
done by our system of fire protection,
The hank of the Willamette wa
crowded with people an hour before it
was dark enough to have the flrewoiks.
The display wa an unusually good
one, aud gave excellent satisfaction.
At the opera bouse, the fire boys bad
a full floor of dancers uutll 8KW o'clock
lu tbe morning, and a most enjoyable
evening was spent Over 200 took
part aud all bad a time "out of sight."
About fifteen oouples from Salem took
lu the dauce, and all expressed them
selves as well-pleased.
The free dance st the pavilion wo
kept up until 6KMJ o'clock lu tho morn
ing, aud was very "liberally" patron
ised. The committee feel that It was a
drawing card lu the day's festivities.
Independence never had so large a
crowd In town at one time before.
Tbere were no accidents, no disorder
ly conduct, and good-nature prevailed.
Tbe marshal of tbe day were every
where doing their duly, and rendered
valuable assistance, which the public

In tbe base ball game between inde
pendence aud Dallas, tbe former was
victorious In a score of 17 to 14. Our
boys have certaiuiy got tbe hoodoo oil
of them, and we expect to see them
win a game oocsloually. This wa

gear, save time, consequently the mill
saw several thousand feet more lumber
per day. The large platter, which will
dress a stick six inches thick aud two
feet wide on all four sides at once Is an
improvement. The old planer Is there
for light work.- To go and see the mill

When ttie Wllsou tarlll bill wa first

can in the country were willing to
admit that It should be allowed to be

devised to defeat it. It iMtssed the
bouse of representatives under the whip
aud spur of tbe committee ou rules,
without full discussion or adequate
consideration. In the aeuate it has
bad a somewhat peculiar experience,
the premmt draft being very different
from tbe one which passed tbe bouse;
but notwithstanding the change made,
it contain almost every bad feature of
the original bill. True, the rate of duty
have been increased ou some at tlelos,
but a a whole very little ha been con

Lumber has been put on the free list,
to the great detriment of New Engluud

agricultural product has been greatly
lowered, striking a very aerlou blow to
all the state hording ou the Dominion

With that on the free list, sheep bus
baudry will be practically destroyed In
this oouutry, aud the duties ou the
manufacture of wool will be lowered
to such an exteut a to seriously inter

safe to assert that either they will be
compelled to close their establishments,
or reduce the wages of tne operators to
almost the starvation point.
In addition to this, there Is little ex

THE CHINESE AT HOME.
MA.M OF THEIR CUSTOMS ARE THE
REVEU.ME OF OCRS.
How They Compare With the Japanese
What Constitutes an Education
So Hereditary A rlsta-racy.
The samples we get of China in our
country give ns very inadequate Ideas
ef the people. We have here to contem
plate a civilization entirely unlike our
own, but in itself much more complete
than ours. In the presence of the Chi
nese, all European and Americans are
parvenus. These people burned coal
before tbo Christian era. They invent
ed printing 1.000 years before Guten
berg aud Faust flourished, and tboy
knew the use of gunpowder when our
forefathers were using bows and ar
rows, In most things which apjwar on
tbe surface they are our antipodes.
They mount a horse from tberigbt side
instead of the left, rend from left to
right, say west south instead of south
west, their mariner s needle points to
tbe south, tbe men wear petticoat and
tbe women trousers, they ebave the
fronts of tbelr bead and not their faces,
shake their own bands instead of each
others as a greeting, write their family
names flrat and tbeir given names aft
erward, bav their marginal notes at
tbe top of tbelr books, place a distin
guished guest on tbe left and are care
ful not to uncover in bis presence, wear
white for monrnlng, tbe men sew and
tbe women work In tbe fields, and soon
to the end of tbe chapter.
We sball find In China the origin of
much that we have seen in Japan. Tbe
position of woman in tbe family and so
ciety is about the same, except that tbe
Japanese women do not cramp their
feet, and therefore can go about more
freely, Tbe domestic architecture is
similar, so far as external construction
goes, but tbe Chinese houses have no
mats, and tbe people do not squat on
tbe floor. Both wear loose, flowing
robes, wblcb tbe Chinese button, but
tbe Japanese do not. In tbe conversa
tion of tbe people tbe Chinese indulge
in honor! Acs as much as the Japanese.
It is the correct thing to ask your friend
to condescend to come from bis elegant
bouse to your miserable bovol, or to al
low bis distinguished cup of tea to de
scend to your unworthy self. Tbe Chi
nese classics are also tbe classics in Ja
pan, and tbe Chinese ideographs are
naed by Japanese writers. Education
is mainly etiquette. The Chinese have
8,000 rules of bebsvior, wbicb tbe edu
cated man must know. If a man have
bad manners, tbey say be i not edu
The Chinese sages, like Confucius,
Mencius and others whose works are
classics, enunciated a bigb grade of
ethics. Confacius stated tbe golden
rule, tbongb negatively, thus: "If tbere
1 anything 1 do not want done tome, I
will not do it onto another." His eth
ical teachluga take rank with those of
tbe Greek and Roman moralist and
tbe Hebrew prophets, but are without
reference to a Supreme Deing wbo re
quire ns to keep bis commandments.
Tbe family customs are similar to the
Japanese. Society is patriarchal. The
family, not the individual, is consid
ered. Marriages are arranged as in Ja
pan to perpetuate the family, and go be
tween are employed to settle the terms.
Tbere is only one wife, but concubines
are taken into the house at will. Tbe
wife finds life burdensome when she is
tbe servant of the household, especially
of ber fatber-in-law and mothor-in-law,
but when she becomes a motber-in-law
she gets ber own Innings and makes it
warm for her daughter-in-law.
Tbe Chinese have as many genuflex
ions ss tbe Japanese and numerous
grades of obeisances to be employed ac
cording to circumstances, "iree prostra
tions, each with three knocking of the
bead against tbe flsor, are snped to be
about tbe extreme exhibition of respect.
Tbe people vary a good deal in tbe dif
ferent sections. Tbe south of China ia
mountainous, and tbe people tbere are
smaller, more volatile and brighter
than in tbe north, where the crowded
dwellers on tbe plains snd paddy fields
are heavier, less excitable, not so quick
to see or act. There ia no hereditary
aristocracy in China. All the people
are bound to obey the will of tbe em
peror and have no rights he is bound
to respect. Tbere is no caste, as in India.
The people are classified as natives and
aliens, the latter being subdued peo
ple in the provinces; conquerors and
conquered, with special reference to
the prohibition of marriages between
tbe Mantchoo and Chinese, and freemen
and slaves. There are no laws against
slavery. Every native is allowed to
purchase slaves and retain tbeir chil
dren in servitude, bnt the number of
slaves is small, and thoir condition is
comparatively easy. Probably there are
no better mannered people in the world
than the educated Chinese. Tbey are
also very competent business men, and
as such enjoy an excellent reputation.

Marriage Propou! Reform.
A suggestion is made tor a legal re
form which, while retaining breach of
promise actions, would deprive them of
all their ornamental trimmings in the
shape of love letters and the other usual
Incidents of courtship. It is proposed
that no promise of marriage should be
hold valid unless it is made in writing
upon properly stamped paper. Young
ladle might affix a sixpenny stamp to
the letter iu which the swain declares
bis affections and ask him to be so good
as to cancel it with his autograph.
A gambling "house on Market street,
San Francisco, was robbed by two men
a few nights since. The men entered
the place with drawn revolvers and
gathered up about (4,000 and started to
run. One of them was captured. In
their flight the thieves dropped a num
ber of (30 pieces on the sidewalk. News
boys and messenger boys swarmed about
the place and picked up the coins while
the offloers were pursuing the robbers.
The one captured is William Paulsell,

A passenger train was derailed at Ros
toe, near Los Angeles, by two masked
robbers tbe other night. The engineer
noticed that the switch at Roscoe was
open, but could not stop the train in
time to prevent a derailment. The en
giue and two carloads of oranges left the
track. The fireman and an unknown
tramp were killed. As soon as the en
gine jumped the track two men ran to
the sido of the tender and covered the
nigineerwith guns. The robbers then
Bred a volley along the side of the train
to keep the trainmen and passengers
from alighting. A brakeman was forced
to accompany the robbers to the express
car and compelled him to place two dy
namite bombs against thf door. After
mattering tbe door tbe robbers entered
the express car and forced the messen
ger to give up the contents of the safe.
