The Woolen Mills Fbocebbion. On
Wednesday Mr. Jacobs procured several
doien new brooms, and in the afternoon
the sub-bosses announced to the hands
that as McKinley had been elected the
woolen mill hands would march in pro
cession, and that each one would carry
a broom . to show that McKinley had
made a clean sweep. Those of the
hands who sympathized with Bryan
muttered curses against "old Jacobs,"
but as they were afraid they might lose
their bread and butter, all turned out
with the procession excepting a few stub
born women and one man. The woolen
mill employes, in their working clothes,
marched down and up the
Main street, through the rain, with the
. .:.k aJ
brooms on their shoulders, the skirts of
the women dragging through the mud.
Mr. Jacobs has promised that in case
Mark Hanna is elected he will raise the
wages, which would be a God-send to
the women weavers on flannels and
blankets who cannot now make over
$12, to f 18 at the. highest, and that he
will want more weavers in order to take
advantage of the McKinley prosperity.

In this city kept tally of a couple of dozen
of tramps that called at her house for
food, all of thein being put to work at a
woodpile while it was being prepared,
with the following result : Nineteen left a
stick hulf sawed off und left us soon as
they had eaten; three or four worked
a little whilo after their meal, and but
one seemed in dead earnest, evidently
desiring to fully earn it. He said he
was not a trump and fur his diligence
received a coat in addition. Here is a
nut for reformers to crack.

count of the rapid disappearance of
wood In the vicinity of Oregon City, it
is probable that, when money attain
circulates freely, an electric line will be
built eastward from the city to the large
belt of forest too fur distant to render
hauling by wagon profitable, unless
teamster's wages would considerably
rise. It is said that at Hardscrabble
most of the choppers are working up
culled trees because the sound, good
wood is nearly gone.

Increase in Children. The number
of pupils attending the west side school
is 122, in charge of four teachers, in
cluding the principal, Prof. Durat. Last
year the number of pupils was 120, but
since then the west side district has
been divided, the schoolhouse of the
new aistrict being at AVillumetto Falls.
The rapid increase in children speaks
well for the Oregon climate, and ere
long will demand the creation of still
another school district.
