On Saturday, April 1, the Molalla
road committee met at Payn's school
house to hear the report of the sub-committee
and Surveyor Smith's estimates
of both the new and old routes. After
considerable argument, with the best of
feeling, a vote was taken and the old
road route was adopted by a unanimous
vote. The bills for surveying were
presented and paid, leaving a balance
of 14.50 which was donated to the sur
vey of the Buckner creek route. A com
mittee was appointed to receive sub
scription, and the whole committee will
meet the county court on Friday, April
7th. The intention is to raise at least
$2,500 in subscription work and with
' some help from the county, to finish
the road through as far as Howard's
mill this year. Frank Jagger headed
the list of subscriptions with (100. The
Oregon Cily delegation was tendered a
vote of thanks for the interest they have
taken in bringing the road question to
a final settlement.

There was a road meeting at Paine's
school house on Saturday, the 4th, to
listen to the report of the committee on
survey which was read and adopted.
Said report was a detailed account or
estimate of the work and expense of
grading both the old and new route, and
after considerable indecision, as the
committees were pretty evenly divided,
two favoring the old route and two the
I new, and after taking into account the
eost of forcing the new route through
those farms where there was a protest,
it was decided to take the old route as
improved by the survey. Harvev Cross
at this juncture made a nice little talk
that captured all hands. He said that
Oregon City was disposed to do a whole
lot for the roads if they could get any
thing definite as a result. That they
didn't propose to help build the road
one half mile or one mile farther, and
get no good as the result, but if the
space between the end of the p'ank rond
and the good road on the Molalla bot
tom could be connected Oregon CUy
would do its share. He gave it as his
opinion that $2,500 should be raised by
the citizens who are interested in the
road, and he pledged Oregon City for
$0n0 hard cash as their part of it, the
balance to be raised outside along the
road. Frank Jaggar gave his pledge for
$100. Committee were to be set to
work at once to raise the balance, and
the coming Friday was the day set for
all the committees to meet in a body in
Oregon City and go before the county
court, pledging themselves to raise $2,
500, and asking of that honorable body
their assistance to complete the road
from the end of the plank to the good
road at Howard's mill. It cheers one to
see how nobly those committees took
up the farmers' burden. This is most
encouraging. This is as it should be.
The farmers should take up their own
burdens and not wait for others to do it
I was diverted at the close of this
road meeting, and what I shall relate
Shows so plainly that the farmers ex
pect some one else to take up their bur
dens: One of the Oregon City com
mittee remarked that it was the hearty
wish of Oregon City to have good roads
leading to it so as to draw all the trade
in that direction possible . very com
mendable wish, every one will say but
the Mulino committee had a member
that has been prominent as a chawer
of the rag, and at the remark of this
Oregon City man, he drew himself up t
his full height, which is not very high ;
he cut the air a time or two with his
horny hands, his eyes snapped, he
shifted his tobacco from one cheek to
the other, and in mott strident tones
he said, "By G I Oregon City don't
know how to -treat the farmer right
when he does come with his produce."
What does such a one expect the town
people to do when they come with their
produce ? Does he expect that the busi
ness roan will be waiting on the street
for the farmer, and when he comes along
take him by the aim, walk him up and
down the street,' and cry out like an
auctioneer: "Hoi ve business men at
tention! Here is one of those spring
chickens that grow onlv in the country ;
he is too stupid to ret the pric on the
product of 1) is own labor find we busi
ness men must see to it that he gtts the
very highest price it is possible-to pay
him for it. It is evident from his actions
that he has suffered from softening of
the grain, a he always allows us to set
the price on the product of his labor."
Can you blame the lusiiipfs niai for
taking in such a spring chicien? I can't.
I promied in my last communication
to tell you how the other feilow protects
himself. It is by placing the price on
the product of his own labor. I hope to
be able to give you my idea nore fully
on another time. Take up the farmer's
