Sam Simpson's Poems.
The poetical .writings of Oregon's
sweetest singer, Sam L. Simpson, are
now being compiled for publication in
book form, and agents are in the field so
liciting subscriptions. The book will be
ready for the public by December. The
contents will consist of the choicest se
lections of the author, and will fill a
book ol 400 pages. No home library
should be without a volume of Sam
Simpson's poetry. Aside from the in
trusic merit of Simpson's poems, written
on all subjt-cts, their local nature, d. s
criptinn of Oregon romance, scenic
beauties, of mountain and river, have a
special Western significance and value.
The author of'Beautiful Willamette,"
has been called the "Burns of Oregon,"

Mrs. J. R. Beavers has been engaged
to canvass Oregon City for the sale of
these poems, Ihe book will be sold for
$2.00 and (2.50, payable on delivery, by
agents for the Simpson Publishing Com
pany. If the growth of trusts is not checked,
the time is coming when they will have
absorbed the entire business of the
country. It will not take long then for
them to absorb the bulk of the prop
erty of the country. With a few people
possessing the property, the many will
possess the physical strength. What
then will be the result? Strength starv
ing will hardly permit weakness to en
joy plenty. The monopolists ought to
see this, even if it is far off.

.Some very codfishy people consider
that this paper intended ft slam against
Senator Porter and his brile, when it
mentioned the fact that they had re
turned from Astoria and the teaeide.
The information was obtained at Mtv

here on a Certatrroy, unlo tlicy aon

. Now that hop picking is practically
over, with its social opportunities, it is
expected that the usual number of ro
mantic marriages will materialize dur
ing the next fw months. Hopyardl
courtships, in the opportunity presented!
for forming new acquaintances, often'
result in marriages. That lias been the
result to a great extent in the history of'

will probably not prove an exception to
the usual rule. It is a notable fact,,
however, that an unusual number of
young married people went to the hop

There Is a continual cry about gool'
roads leading to Oregon City being im
proved. This is all very proper. The
more roads the better. The all impor
tant question, however, is facilities for
marketing farm produce here. When
ever there is an oversupply for the lo
cal market, the producer Invariably Is
compelled to go . to Portland or else
where to dispose of their products. Un
til this condition of things Is remedied,.
Oregon City can never become a great
trade center. The farmers of Clacka
mas county much prefer to come here
to do their trading for obvious reasons.
But, if they cannot Bell their products
here, who can blame them for remain
ing away? It is to be hoped that this
matter will be remedied at an early
date, then farmers will take an active
interest in good roads leading to this
