ADDRESS OF AARON JONES.
From all sections of the county, far
and near, the Patrons of Husbandry as
sembled on Thursday afte moon of last
week, at Willamette hall, tobear the ad
dress of Hon. Aaron Jones, the wh te
haired, athletic, brniny farmer who is
master of of the National Grange. La
dies, members of the order, were nu
merous in the audience.
The speech of Mr. Jones was preceded
by a solo on the piano and vocal music
by members of the choir of Central
Grange. Mr. TJ'Ren delivered a short
address of welcome.
"The Grange," said Aaron Jones, had
grown faster daring the last current
year increasing in members 2,000 a
week than during the : previous year,
which itself had been a year of greatest
growth in a quarter of a century. The
order is established on high moral prin
ciples, and it is only on such a plane
that it can do its great work. We live
in an age of organization, The national
organization of manufacturers has $9,
500,000,000 of capital, and when any
legislation is attempted in Washington
to inteifere with its interests it prompt
ly puts a stop to it. At South Bend,
Indiana, my home," said the speaker,"
is a manufacturing concern with $42,
000,000 of capital employing 7,000 men.
It supports a population of 40,000 .peo
ple. Think of the vast power of such a
corporation. The bankers I like bank
ers, they are nice, lellows the bankers
also have a national organization and
stand together in regard to national
legislation. We live in the age of stand
ing together. Without organization the
individual is nobody.
The farmer can increase his profits by
co-operation. We, across the moun
tains are making large profits by co-op
erative selling. To start with, the wiEe
farmer buys cheaply what he would
sell in his own fields by low cost of prc
We in Indiana, by careful experiments,
and by means of conipar'ng our differ
ent experiments, have succeed in large'
ly increasing the yield ol our farms in
wheat and corn. By experiments in
feeding sheep for the Chicago market
1 got tor my 40-cent corn 00 cents a
rree rural man aeuvery, wmcn now
accommodates 21,000,000 people, was
established through the efforts of the
lirange. iour years ago, the commit
tee of three of the grange on national
legislation (Aaron Jones and two others)
succeeded in increasing the appropria
tion foi that object from $150,000 annual
ly to $1,750,000. Without our deter-
mined, persistent efforts, Mark Hannat
and Mat Quay would have defeated this
appropriation in the senate. Tbe weight
ef the great organization of the farmers
of America won the victory.
If you stand up, farmers, the Ameri
can congress will givejou your rights.
The signal success of the committee of
the national grange ftith free rural mail
delivery is possible with every great in
terest of ours."
Aaron Jones punctuates his speech
with frequent jokes, witticisms and "by
joves," and often brings down the house.
His bulging, glittering-browri eyes are
the windows of keen intellect. After
the address, at the suggestion, of Dr.
Casto, ihe young grangers present in
large numbers, were introduced, one by
one,to the master of tbe national grange.

But Many New Buildings are Being
Erected in Oregon City and
There seems ti be a great demand for
lumber in Clackamas county. Nearly
ail of the saw milieu are running over
time and are stil unable to supply the
demand. Some mills have orders they
cannot fill for four months. There is a
great deal of buildinj going on in both
city and country. In the town there are
three large business blocks uuder 'course
of construction. They are, the O. W.
P. & Railway Go's., freight depot ; Fair
dough Bros, warehouse and Ely Bros,
warehouse. The Methodist church build
ing is begining to put on an appearance
of the finished article. Besides there
are more than a dozm cottages and
residences under course of construction
in different parts of the town. Out at
Sprlngwater and Dodge, where forest
fir el last fall destroyed nearly half a
hundred homes, the people are finding
it utterly impossible to secure lumber
with which to build and are anxiously
awaiting the completion of Myers'
sawmills which was also destroyed by
fire at the same time.
