What is true in the north part of the
county is also true around Oregon City
where the woixlhaulers cut up the roads
in a simihir manner. Where a man
owns a farm t'mt he is clearing up and

The republican primary was held Sat-
urdar at Highland hall and named pre
cinct otlicers and delegates to the con
vention. It was a tame affair and but
one or two had anything to oner as to
the conduct of the county affairs.
On Monday eve a most enjoyable par
ty was given at the residence of the
Rev. R, R. Punlap in honor of his 79th
biithday. He is bale and hearty, as
most men of fifty. About thirty of the
moBt representative people of Highland
were iu attendance.
Professor Artie Dunlap is very much
In evidence with his singing class and
such interest in vocal music has never
before been made manifest and Highland
is being swayed from stem to stern by
the concord of sweet sounds.
There seems to be a boom in building
here and the demand for lumber is so
great that the mill cannot supply it.
So far there has been no immigrants
out to look at this part of the county.
Bad roads are no doubt the cause, other
wise we might have added to our pre
cinct many desirable families, as there
is plenty room.
Religiom matters promise to be lively
here this season as the Methodists and
Baptists are vieing with each other in
snatching the burning brands from the
tire but as there is but one church build
ing and both parties wished .o occupy
it on the same date, the clouds of trou
ble began to hover over the oiiiei wise
serene community, and for awhile it
looked as though a few Christian mar-
tyrs might l e in order, but the Method
ists withdrew for another dale. j
And now a literary and flehntin" soci
ety is talked i f and those who had their
light under a buchel will have a chance
to shine and Highland will produce or-1
tors who will make Hale and Mernberg
look to their biurets when gold medals
are in sigh.
Now to cap the climax comes the!
Highland laureate with a stanza on a,
lovelorn "Don Quixote" whose Dulcinia
has been captured bv a bolder knight :
No. the Don does not travel the H on
It'n a tale tbat is sad but true,
And the tears that he shed, to try to get
Would wet a moss back through.
How his feet gut the start of his nne-
When he told her that lovine vow,
But suffice it to Bay, other "Fellows" are
Up and down that Hogback now.
Miller ami Eastham at Molalla.
As the regular correspondent has not
sent yon an account of the independent
poll i leal meeting at this place on March
loth, I will send you a few items, trust,
ing that even at this late hour they may
be of interest to thoe who are honestly
striving for hotter government.
Mr. O. ' '. Eastham was the first;
speaker. He is a young man of much
ability, a good speaker, ud one who
has shown the courage of his convic
tions by daring to step out and oppose
his own party when it has become I lie
mere instrument to register the will of
the county boss. His remarks were di
rect to the point and were well received
by the large aud.ence. He did not beat
about the bush, but charged ths respon-;
sibilite for the bad showing m ide by
Clackamas county where it b lons, to
the machine system of politics that traf
fics in offices for the benefit of the party ;
Colonel Miller then followed in his
usual forcible and eloquent style and
handled the county boss and spoilsman
without gloves. The applause f the
audience indicated that his rental ks
were appieciated. The many telling
points made by both speakers are too
numerous to mention, but will doubtless
be brought before the voters in every
precinct in the county before the close
of the campaign. A sensational mess
age sent over the telephone by the
would-be third term senator was prompt
ly checkmated and let him down, yet
lower if possible in the estimation of the
Molalla will be found loyal to the citi
zens movement; the only hope for bet
ter things that 'an possibly be realized
at the coming election. Right here let
me urge and impress upon everyone
who feels kindly towards this movement
and competent officials, selected by the
people instead of one man who makes it
his business to traffic in offices, the ne
cessity of attending the citizens prima
ries on Saturday. April 5th. Come out.
Do not forget. This is your tight; do j
not leave it for a few to in ike. 1 he way
to nown bossism is to begin at the pri
maries, and begin now. Come out
