Memorial Address
Memorial oration to the Eagles
of St. Johns, Oregon,, May 22(1,
1910, by W. W. Holcomb:
'Tis with mingled feelings of joy
and regret that I respond to your
call this Eagle memorial day.
Joy to know that the members of
this glorious order lus not forgotten
those who mingled with them here
in brotherly love.
Now gone from this world of care,
Beyond, beyond the realms of air.
Joy to know that alt of our de
parted brothers werc'jtncn of honor
and worthy of being remembered
not only by the Eagles and their
families but by residents of St.
Johns and the world.
Joy, to see this tribute of respect
paid them, and joy to hear the sen
timental remarks of Brother Gates,
and joy to sec the Eagles of St.
Johns doing their duty as Eagles.
Regret that my feeble tongue can
not give expression to the solemn,
pulsating emotions of the hour.
I would not attempt the high
flight of oratory on an occasion like
this, nor could I if I would. At
the best, I can only hope to speak
to you in a plain and I trust com
mou sense manner, admitting my
inability and poor thoughts to
justice to an occasion like this.
Kegret to know that the
brothers who answered not at
roll call have gone and left us
condole around those vacant chairs.
Those vacant chairs, with muffled
tolling voice that wc have just
heard, still echoes down through
the corridors of my soul.
Wc meet today for the purpose
that has the dignity and tenderness
of funeral rites, without its saducs.
It is not a new bereavement but one
which time has softened that brings
us here.
Wc meet, not around a newly
made grave, but around these
vacant chairs which are decorated
with the memorials of brotherly
love. Peaceful be thy sleep, dear
brothers. Above every tomb the
daily sunshine has smiled, tears
have wept over the humblest.
Some grasses nestle, some vines
creep, and the eagle with its
bread whate, ancient .emblem ef
American liberty and immortality.

We, who survive, grow daily
older since our beloved brothers
have taken their departure, the
youngster has gained a new wrin

we must fill our mission here. And

Those who answer not have gone
before us, varied iu character like

and their weaknesses, their merits
and their faults. Their life ceased
at its climax and the ending sancti

their, way to heaven equally short,

nest and with equal readiness our
love seeks them today.
Ia our memories are the names

Have a meaning also for those who
do not share our memories. When
men have instinctively agreed to
have a memorial day it will be
found that there is some thought
or feeling behind it which is too
large to be dependcut upon associa
tions alone or time honored cus
toms, as iu this case it is true de
votion and remembrance that the
Eagles have for their absent broth
ers and tribute of respect and honor
to them and their families.
When we do honor to the dead
in terms that embrace the living,
we do not deceive ourselves.
Life is a profound and passionate
thing, of short duration here, uud
was so given to us in the bediming
of time when the star of hope wus
placed over the cradle of the poor
man's babe.
I do not pretend to undervalue
the worldly 'rewards of ambition,
wc have seen with our own eyes in
the fields of science, discovery aud
art; and while we are permitted to
live and nope on, 'tis or us to re
port to those that come after us.
Let it be our care to make tender

the survivors.

solemnity they deserve and give

momai devotion, without iu some
degree imparting them to those that
come after us. I believe from the
bottom of my heart that our Eagles'
teaching aim memorial nails are
worth more to our young meu by
way of learning and inspiration
than all the monuments and glory
of war.
But even if I am wrong, even if
those that come after us forget all
that we hold dear and the future is
to teach and kindle its children in
ways as yet unrevealed, it is enough
for us that to us this day is dear
and sabred, a belief that somewhere
at last we will meet our departed
brothers where the rainbow never
We have met and rejoice in the
closest tie which is possible be
tween man and mau, a tie of trite
brotherly love, a tie of liberty, a tie
truth, a tie equality, a tie justice.
1 believe that as life is action and
passion, it is required of a man that
he should share the burden of His
time at the peril of being judged
not to have lived. If this is. so,
the use of this day is obvious. It
is true that we may differ in world

song and glory.
Their faults, if any, we write
upon the sand and forget, their vir
tues upon the tablets of our hearts
and rcrqember.
It has been said that there is no
death, that human stars go down
to rise on some brighter, fairer
shore, and wc bslieve it is true. If
so, the universe is six stars brhzhter.
Your grief cannot be soothed
with words, for laucuagc cannot
express the emotions and sympa
thies of the human heart at such a
loss. Iu the silent earth, the young
anu tlie old, the rich and the poor
all must sleep, side by side, and
death always has aud will finally
overtake us all.
I believe death at its worse is
only perfect rest, and knits together
the ravelled sleeve of care. While
life's uneven journey is full of care,
sorrow, pain and tears and ends
with death. It surely gives all there
is of worth to life and the key to
the door of another world.
Beyond, beyond the setting sun,
When our course In life is run.
Yes, there surely is another
world that is better and brighter
man this, where there is uo part

the skein of life is untangled,
straightened and rewound.
Dear brothers, soon wc will join
you. I fancy I sec you on the
golden streets and near you sing
that sacred old hymu ol hymns,
"Nearer my God to Tlicc."
Ho For The Fourth
That St. Johns will have
Fourth of July celebration that will
discount anything in its line that
ever happened here is now fully
assured. The Gre department has
cutered into the project with a vim
and enthusiasm that will brook no
opposition or obstruction. The in
terest of the business men and citi
sens in general regarding the pro
posed jubilee has been aroused to a
keen degree, aud they are offering
their aid and financial assistance iu
a manner that is particularly grati
fying and encouraging. At the in-
aaLaMppBeum tWmaV .flft4a.aajaBMBaWam..i.aBaaaBBBBafrBi
tMy sum was subscribed toward de
fraying the expenses incident to the
celebration. A number of cnthus
iustic addresses were made and
plans outlined -for making it the
best ever. Hon. K. C. Couch, W.
a. liasey and Arnold linger were
appointed as a committee to solicit
funds, and J. F. Hendricks and A.
W, Markle appointed to draft au
advertising program. The city
dads have generously permitted the
fire department to obtain all the
money arising from sale of conces
sions, and also the use of Ivanhoe
street for racing on that day.
Many details are yet to be worked
out, but the project has received
such an impetus that nothing short
of a miracle can stop it. Some of
the more optimistic believe that 35,
000 visitors will be attracted to our
city on that day. There is no
doubt but that a big celebration
here will advertise the. city as no
other proposition would. Strangers
trom tar and near wilt nave an op
portunity to sec what we have in
St. Johns, aud cannot well help but
notice Its wonderful advantages aud
resources. Therefore, the celebra
tion of the Fourth of July in St.
Johns is of far greater import than
just to have a good time. Every
dollar spent in conjunction with the
eveHt will be a dollar well spent and
its effect will be felt-long after July
4th has passed into history, Do
not be niggardly in helping the cele
bration along. Give just as gener
ously as you are able. Like "bread
cast upon the waters," it will re
turn to you many fold.
Central Hotel Sold
The largest sale of improved
realty that has ever been recorded
ia St. Johns occurred last week
when the Central Hotel changed
beads. As a barometer of rising
values ia this city it U quite im
portant. Cochran Bros, built the
structure about six years ago, the
ground and building representing
an investment of slightly more than
$7,000. The price paid by the new
owner, Frank Ludesher of Port land,
was f 35,000. . The iacomc from the
structure ia paying big iatereet at
the price paid. J. 8. Downey, the
bustling real estate man, con
summated the deal.

But a short distance west of the

pipe. One of these buildings is
100x250 feet iu dimensions and the
other covers 60x200 feet. A large
shed is attached to the building in
which the wood pipe is manu
factured. These buildings have
been completed a little over a month
and about 72 men are employed at
present. More machinery is being
nstalled and the force will be in
creased from time to time.
Two concrete dry kilns, a con
crete shaving and sawdust bin and
an engine house complete the list of

Directly across from the Davis
Safe & Lock Company, the Port-

has established a factory for the
making of cement pipe for sewer
purposes. I hey nave a one-story
frame building 72x100 feeet in size
and make all sizes of pipe from 3 to
24 inches in diameter. They turn
out about iooo feet of pipe per day

been in operation about six weeks.
A trip to Kenton and to the fac

A petition for the improvement
of Jctscy street, Fcsscndcn to the
Weyerhatiscr tract by cement side
walk and macadam, was the first
matter that received the attention
of the city council Tuesday night.
The pctitiou . was numerously
signed, but as a resolution had
previously been adopted providing
for hard surfacing of Jersey, Fes-
sctiden to Catlin, this part of the
proposed improvement was elimi
nated and a resolution directing the
engineer to prepare the necessary
plans, profile, etc., for the balance
of the Improvement was adopted. J
A petition for the improvement
of Chicago, from Jersey to Port
land boulevard, by macadamizing
was received and the engineer di
rected to prepare data for the im
provement as requested.
Hon. K. c Couch asked that the
proposed hard surfacing of Phila
delphia street be extended to Hayes
street upon the present grade. The
present grade, however, does not
meet with the approval of the dads,
and, therefore, after some strenu
ous discussion, the communication
was referred back to Mr. Couch
stating the councilmcn's views re
garding the grade.
I lie Fcsscudcu street proposition
was once more taken up, but owing
to the uou-appcarancc of representa
tives of the Portland Railway,
Light & Power Co. the street com
mittee and Fcsscndcn street com
mittee agreed to meet in the city
attorney's office Wednesday morn-
ng and there arrange to meet with
the Railway officials some time
during the week in order that a
definite report can be made next
1 uesday evening. A plan outlined
as agreeable to the property owners
of this street may be found iu an
other column.

ouly bid for the improvement of

At the Stock Yards
Receipts for tlie week have been:
Cattle 2244, calves 84, hogs 1063
and sheep 6160, In the face of
the liberal supply of cattle the mar
ket has remained surprisingly
strong, A loss of from 10 to 15
cents per hundred on the ve?k is
ight, especially in view of the ar
rival of grass cattle. The bulk of
the arrivals are from California aud
in point of quality they ruled better
than the usual offerings from east
of the Cascade Mountains. The
re-adjustment of prices expected
because of the difference in Cali
fornia buy fed aud Oregon grass
cattle cannot be said to have taken
place. The sheep market has low
ered steadily and the wide varia
tion shown in prices has been due
to a like condition, iu the quality of
the offerings, There has been a
fair demand at the lower prices.
The hog market shows increased
supplies from local territory aud
prices are about steady at last
week's closing. Tops have brought
10.55, the bulk of the sales run
ning at $10.50.

To St. Johns Review:
Having reached home all right
on, the loth, after havingA pleasant
trip, I send greeting to all my old
friends in St. Johns aud say that
times here are about the same as
there, but from the 10th to the 14th
was so cold here that I could not
go out of the house without getting
a chill, but the weather now is
quite moderate.
What annoyed me was that thev
charged me $7,10 foe uo pounds of
excess baggage, at St. Johus, and
when I came here they said that
they had got a telcgrum from St.
Johns to charge me $4.30 more, and
1 got a duplicate of such telegram.
Now, what I want to know is this:
"Did two of Swift's hogs get away
trom the packing plant and get as
far as the St. Johns station, as the
ticket agent and freight agent took
their book or price list and looked
it over carefully iu regard to the
prices charged. Will I look for
the hogs here, or have you got them
iu St. Johns? I remain as ever,

Hill Seeing Oregon
The trip through Oreuon cf Pres.
ident Louis W. Hill of the Great
Northern Railway has probably oc
casioned a greater amount of news
paper comment in the papers of the
state than has been accorded the
visit of any other man during the
last ten years. Mr. Hill's entrance
into Central Oregon from Shauiko
was somewhat arduous, as he
started immediately after the hard
est rain for twelve mouths that had
resulted iu making some of the
roads almost impassable, but lie
was determined to see all there was
to see, and his personal discomfort
was never mentioned. In every
place he had something definite
and decisive to say. His visit has
served as a tremendous encourage
ment to those interested in the de
velopment of Oregon.
Looks Spick and Span
Never did Oregon look 50 clean,
spick and span as at the present
time, Eastern aud Central Oregon
have had rains at just exactly the
right time. Western aud Southern
Oregon are inteusely prosperous,
and the carpenter, cabinet maker,
paiuter, designer, landscape artist
and busy housewife have had more
than they could do in every scctiou,
for the disposition to clean up and
paint up and put the best foot fore
most was never more contagious
than at the present time.
The 'Living Pictures from Long
fellow" given by the Ladies Aid of
the Methodist church iu BIckner
hall last Friday night were splen
didly executed. The costumes
worn by the participants and their
delineation of the characters and
scenes were realistic and entered
fully into the spirit of the times.
The evening was thoroughly en
joyed by all, and the eutertaiument
was deserving of a much larger at
tendance than was accorded it,'
