OREGON CITY, OCT. tl, 1902
With this issue the editorship of the
Courier-Herald passes fromthe undersign
ed to John H. Westover, an experienced
newspaper man and a democrat from
During our eleven years' connection
with this paper we have made a few
friends and some enemies, but have
always tried, to the best of our ability,
to treat all in a fair and impartial manner
and to make the paper an independent
people's paper rather than a political
We sh.ill continue to reside in Oregon
City, where we have been fortunate
enough to secure a humble home.
Thanking you, one and all, for your
liberal support, I remain,
I Yours in the work,
A. I. Cheney .
Beginning with the firBt day of No
vember which is Saturday of this week
the Courier-Herald will pass into the
hands and control of the Oregon City
Courier Publishing Co., of which Co.,
the writer is the President and his
wife and R. Lee Westover together
with himself are the only stockholders.
J, II. Westover will be the editor-in-chief
and the business manager of the
paper and control its policy and busi
ness. We have pitched our tent amone
the good people of Oregon City and
Clackamas county with the intention of
abiding amongst y u and making "your
fortunes our fortunes and your home our
home." It isan inviting Gold for journal
istic work, and we believe that there is a
good field here for a first-class, up to date
newspaper devoted to the material in
terest of this lovely city and county,
and we shall do our utmost to make a
paper worthy of the place. For a time
we will no doubt be handicapped by a
lack of acquaintance with your people
and beg of our constituency to bear with
us until our acquaintance becomes more
extensive and we become more thor
oughly in touch with the people and
the needs of this field of labor.
Oregon City and Clackamas county
ought to stand at the head of the pro
cession in this Btate onjaccount of their
position, size and wealth, and ought to
forge more and more to the front as the
f years go by. To the material develop
ment of both county and state we dedi
cate the best efforts ofthispapei under
its new management.
We bring to this work fifteen years of
active newspaper experience and be
lieve we can make a newspaper in this
county worthy of the field and ask the
Bupport of all those who have the inter
est of the county aid city at heart as
well asll who have been kindly dis
posed to the Courler-llorald in the past.
The paper in the future will be a
Btraight Democratic Bheet devoted loyally
to the interest of the Democratic party.
We shall seek In all honorable ways to
propagate Democratic Doctrines as enun
ciated in Democratic platforms and use
all honorable means to secure the elec-
lion of Democratic tickets. For 'nigh
. tweutv vears we have followed the I
Democratic flag in"01d Kentucky," have
fought tho party's battles and enjoyed
its triumphs ami sorrowed in its defeats.
The paper will be Democratic, not radi
cal, not abusive, but honestly und con
servatively Democratic, seeking to build
up the party of home government by ar
gument and statement of fact, rather
than by abuto, vilillcation and the cor
rupt practices too oiten resorted to in
lmn American politics. This is
a labor of lovo aud to it we dedicate all
the ability we may possess.
The hyphenated mime of Courier
Herald will be be dropped, and the pa
ger will be known in the future as the
Oregon City Courier.
The Democrats of Clackamas county
have been clamoring for a Democratic
paper and have promised It loyal sup
port. Now is the time to show "by
works" bow etrcngly you want litis
kind of a paper. You cau show your
appreciation of this new venture by com

And now with "malice towards none

Wk pride ourselves on our popular
education, when, instead, we ought to
be ashamed. Nearly 6,000,000 of the
nation's children receive practically no
education, they must work, or run

Rev. Mr. Miles, a New England di
vine of the 17th century, prayed for
rain thuswiee: "O Lord, thou knowest
we do rot want thee to send ua a rain
which shall pour down in fury and swell
our streams and carry away our hay
coc':s, fences and bridges ; but, Lord, we
want it to come drizzle-drazzle, drizzle

good dominie must have had a prophetic
premonition of the "Oregon mist."

worthy of serious consideration.
That D'. Miles is one of the world's
