For year this town has own but
"laudlug" oo th WlHauwtte river.
When the Attona made Independent
it "head of navigation" it did not
aeern of much Importance, but when
hut vear that steamboat paid out
nearly 84,000 to our ruervnauts, end
Ammn for sunntlea the beneM wm
felt. Tlien we had no warehouse, now
we are to have, three. A through rate of
freight has been made from Dallas (by
(Mm) to Independence, thence to Port
laud. It the people of Independence
give the Alton a liberal support,
they should, the boat will outiune to
make ita headquarters here, If they
falter lu their allegiance the result will
be the boat will seek new patronage,
and tempting ufftsrs are being made to
get the boat away from us. If thU
year Is passed successfully and the
people of Independence stay by the
boat we are auiborUed to announce
that a yearly service for freight and
passengers will be Inaugurated ueit
year. CapU Oraham has explained
the plan and It will be one of great
advantage to us, In having a boat land
here every other day the yearrouud.
Denperate efloru are being made to
direct trade from the Altoua and drive
herofl this route. The rich corpora
tions back of the other boats may even
carry frieght for nothing in order to
drive this neat and dainty boat off the
river. Can our merchants afford to
allow It? We have now a better service
than we ever hud, and are promised a
much better one In the future.
The Wist Bma from time to time
has published a great rnauy luteawtiug
letters regarding Central America and
particularly Guatemala. In all of thobe
letters the country was 1 dlscribed
fruitful, the climate delightful and
money easily made, but still the country
was not filling up as it should. Why?
We irive the answer In this week's
paper, in the rt lutlou of an incident lu
Guatemala, where foreigners are im
prisoned and maltreated. A country
may have fine advantages naturally,
but it must have a good government to
make It a desirable place of residence.
A few years ago these United States
attracted millions of people to its
shores, who were pleased with its
natural advantages (which are here
still) and its good government. But
' lately tbe tide has turned. La, week
at the one port of New York, there
were about twelve thousand arrivals
from Europe and twenty-four thous
and departures. Why? Because our
present governing power Is an Inconi
petentone. When we give our people
. ii i
a better government, men lureiguur
will again come to our shores. When
the Central American states show
Justice to foreigners, then we as Arneri
cans will find a way to get there.
It would be of great advantage to Iht
commercial interests of the Unite
Htaiesif there were more American
in Central America, because it would
enlarge our trade and lucreas our
President John M. Bloss, of the
Oregon Agricultural College, on paw
ing though this city last week, rairl
that he would be much pleased to
assist in conducting a farmers' instituU
in Independence if the farmers wished
and would use their influence in help
ing to making it a success. A vast
amount of valuable knowledge Is to be
gained by having such a meeting, and
our farmers of this vicinity and Polk
county should make arrangements foi
such an institute to be held in tbb
couuty. We learn from the HillHboro
Independent that the farmers of that
county found the institute held then
sometime ago very useful to them and
are agating the prospect of having
another iu a short time. Our furmerr
should make preparations for having
such a meeting.
The evidence as shown by the list o
assessmens of the counties of Oregon,
is that Polk is either paying too blgt
an assessment on her lands, or el
other counties are paying too little.
According to the list we publish in tbh
issue Polk county stands ninth in tin
list of 32 counties in Oregon in reguard
to wealth. When w take the poimla-
tlon of 1SW) and divide the taxable
property aa returned this year we
stand second, Multnomah county
with her city of Porttsnd etc., only be-
lug ahead of her. When the cn of
agricultural lands are divided Into the
total assessment of lauds, Polk couuty
stands third $10. 88 an acre) belug ex
ceeded only by Multnomah (ltS.Be) and
Yamhill 1 1.1S. Our people should ex
amine this matter and If Polk Is pay
ing more lhau her share of state taxes
auk for a reduction.
Independence people are bow realli-
lug that they live In a favored part of
the state, that they live lu a very fertile
wvtion of country and that Uie.com
merclal prosperity of tlis town Is
attracting attention. This la very
pleasant to eoutemplate. Now how
ever Is a time when the energy of a
few men can work wonders in our
midst. We refer to soma systematle
effort for directing th most desirable
Immigration her. This is a subject
that should be carefully considered and
acted udou and now is th time to
organise, A meeting of our business
men might result in some plan ol
action tending in the right direction.
People are coming to Oregou, and we
want them to come to Independence.
81 nee November 24, last, the day ou
which the bids for the last bonds were
opeued, the treasurer of the United
States has paid out 125,500,000 in gold
and it is going out at the rate of 1V
000,000 a week and, very suou another
Issue ot bonds will be neccessary. It
must be humllatlng to our democratic
brethren to reallx that this nation is
oorrowlng tuouey now to help pay
running expenses, and yet that is
what these bond Issues amount to. If
the revenues of our government were
1100,000,000 a year more than the ex
penses, eustead of less, you would see
nu flurry over the gold leaving tne
treasury. People do not cash their
clieck on a bank when It has plenty
of money, but only when It Is short of
cash, like our government la now.
The number of cases of accidental
shooting Is becoming very numerous.

With tit arrival of th staamer

of another outrage, th victims of which

Th story wm brought here by Eugene

Jealousy of the Jeft Politico or chief

Henor Asturlas ordered that a crew

grounds, whose constructor should
claim the property as their own, By
this means N expected to drive out the
