Editor Courier. If this lot of oubs
Hons is not answered by Jeome one to
my iBatiefaetion ane treated in silent
contempt as the others asked, it would
seem that I was doomed to disappoint
ment. I am told bv tha Social
labor created all capital, or rather the
producer. If so does not Iflbor, pay nil
taxes? Now comes the querry, what
benefit does the laborer get by taxing
himself for the 1905 fair, when the land,
buildings and other perquisites connect
ed with the fair become the property of
a corporation? If a good thing, why not
levy a 20-mill tax to build barns for the
farmers to keep their poor Btock shel
If this does not give the laborer
enough prosperity, build a lot of build-
ings and levy a tax to have some one to
baniortear them down. If high taxes
are evidence of prosperity, from the
present outlook Clackamas county will
have enough to last a decade. Some
time before the last panic, eminent
statesmen told ub that mortgages, were
eidence of prosperity. Well, some of
us tried it but it did not work verv well.
You Eee, Mr. Editor, it was like this
when we got- the mortgages we had a
aood time while the money lasted, So
did the other fellows. We had pros
perity while the money lasted and I
really think the other fellow does yet.
Well, we had to sweat to pay it off. I
am not dreaming. It is a real hct. '
I hope Mr. LoL'au will not call one of
his Republican neighbors in and attempt

good old barnyard cock snould,- pick it
to pieces, call the old hens and little
chicks to pick it up and digest it, and
not show the wnite feather but sign his
full name. And, Mr. Editor, if vou
will not, after Logan has his 'argument
in, move to lay on the table, as some
other educational and f aternal brothers
did, Comrade Ginther and myself will
commence the elongation method and

and another one of Uncle Sam's guar

waters of the lower Clackamas, they ran

where they were placed In cold storage,
, After having taken ore of the fish the
men then started on up the river look

current of the river was swift and they
had not gone a bng ways until they
broke their oars and were compelled to
make their way ashore as best they
might. As they were about to land they
again ran into another nice lot ol silver

with ferns. These were also shipped
to Portland to keep company with the

Editor, Oregon City Courier : Can I
interest you In a letter from Michigan?
I Ms a much older state tha n Oregon,
with the exception of the Northern part
it la thickly settled, but "that part al
though the soil is not of the most invit.
ing character, is fast going into the
hands of actual settlers.
The upper peninsula is noted for its
wealth of iron and copper; the lower
peninsula lor its coal and salt and its ex
tensive agricultural resources. . We have
many fine educational institutions, the
University of Michigan ranking first
We have fifteen sugar factories in the
state, but we are Bhort of help to grow
enough beets to run them np to their
lull .capacity. The Western border
along Lake Michigan is called the fruit
belt Here most of the peaches and
small fruitBare grown for the markets,
also apples, plums and pears. Fruit is
grown to some extent all. over the state,
Our soil varies from a heavy elay and
some black sand to a light sand; oi the
latter we have plenty in all parts of the
state but with care most canbe made
productive. , a !
Wheat, oats, corn and hay are the
staple crops, although the soil, . is well
adapted to other grains as well as a
variety of vegetables. Lumbering here
is a thing of the past- The pine is near
ly all cut and the hard wood will soon
be at scarce as the pine, outside of the
Coal and copper mining industry... The
days ol making big fortune in Michigan
have gone by unless it should be by
-means of the sugar factories. There is
some money for the farmers in sugar
beets could they get their help at a
reasonable price. Boys and girls from
12 to 18 years old are paid from $1 to
11.60 per day in the beet culture and
wages on the farm ranges from $18 to
$22 per month.
Grain, hay and meats are about the
same price as in Oregon; butter and
eggs are 4 to 6 cents lower . Our winters
are long with generally two months of
stirging cold weather, but of late years
very little snow falls. We always ex
pect from four to six weeks of rain mix
ed with snow in the fall, and the spring
opens up with about the same kind of
weather for about the same length of
time. Our summers are usualy hot and
often very dry, last summer being a rare
, I am very much interested In Oregon,
having a sister, Mrs. W. 0, Williams, a
native of Michigan, residing near your
city. ; I am always pleased to learn of
everything favoring the prosperity of
your beautiful city that appears to me
strong, healthy, vigorous and growing.
I beliei e the Willamette valley to be a
very grand region of country and one of
the most fertile spots to be found in any
part of our broad land. Besides Oregon
has within her borders a very large area
af agricultural ; land that is of almost
wonderful fertility and productiveness.
My information comes from men of
character that have traveled in Oregon.
The state is well located for commerce.
I beleive there is a great amount of
wealth stored in tboBe ranges of moun
tains that energy and enterprise will in
time reveal would say with all the re
sources now in sight there is a grand
future In waiting, for Oregon. I would
say to the good people of the state never
part with your homes to locate in a sec
tions of country you believe to be more
favored, not even Michigan, and should
any of my neighbors or friends that
have a desire to change their location,
by leaving Michigan and there are many
that do, from what I have learned.
I have been getting a 'few Oregon
papers or late, I nnd tneir euitora up-to-date.
They are helping to deelop the
resources of the state. They are helping
the towns and cities where their papers
are published and show a lite ary tal
ent equal to any in the country. I read
the advertisements of your business
men with interest. Tbey all seem to
to have a good business intellect. Judg
ing from the moral and intellectual
character of the people and the natural
resources of the country, I believe that

THE SOUTHERN EXIT
THE BEST IMPROVEflENT THAT
CAN BtJ MADE FO OREdON
Fllteen Hundred Dollars Subscribed
For The New Road By Oregoa
City Merchants. ,
To every person who has the real good
of Oregon City at heart it is apparent
that the building of the etreet op tha
bluff in the south end of the city is a.
crying necessity. The big end of th
county lies south of the city and there ia
but one road by which these people who
want to come here to trade and attenj
to their business at the county seat can
get into "town" and they;have to travel
miles around. The proposed route np
the bluff is practical, it wll cost some
money to be sure, but Oregon City mer
chants have subscribed $1500 to this
end and the sou'h end of town is enti
tled to some 'consideration. .The city
owes it to itself as well as to the citi
zens of the south end and to the citi
zens of the county to build this street.
The city council has the matter in hand
and have pledged their faith to look
well into the matter and bu.ld the road
if it is at at all feaeable. The new road
will do more for Oregon City than any
thing that has been done here in year&
It will open up a new line of traffic, it
will bring more people to town, it will
encourage country people to come to
town, it will help all of us and a little
matter of a few dollars expense ' ooght
not to eland in the way of a much need
ed and merited improvement. Go along
with the good work. f

We are like honpe plants! We heed a

there are no irritations, where the hotel
