THE SUN SHINES BRIGHT IN OREGON.
During the last week the sun 1ms
kiHsod the hills and valleys and moun
tain tops of Oregon and turned them
one and all into a blaze of glory. The
valleys are rich with the promise of
the harvest, the hills and woodlands
are covered with bloom and Spring
time casts its aroma into the atmo
sphere with prodigal hands ; the moun
tain tops are pinaoled peaks of virgin
snow, pointing their crests into the
eternal hluo. No where in all the
earth does the sun shine brighter or
the world look fairer than here in
BENEATH A WILDERNESS OF
FLOWERS AND FRIENDS' OOOD
From all over Clackamas county
eomes good news anent the political
situation. The Democrats where ever
they be are up and in line for Mr.
Roams. That the Democratio party
will poll a much larger per cent of its
vote than will Mr. Hermann is a fore
gone conclusion. The time for a man
to succeed is when the opportunity
presonts itself. The time for a party
to succeed is when the opportunity is
before it. The congressional election
this Juno is but a preliminary to the
big fight that is to be pulled off next
year. The eyes of the nation are now
on the First Oregon, district. Let
every democrat stand by his convic
tions and his party and a victory for
right over wrong, for honest govern
ment over corruption and rotteunoss,
is sure to follow.
Brother W. W. Myres, of socialistic
proclivities, has broken out in a new
spot this week and intimates that the
Courier has criticised the socialists
and him for desiring to apply the Re
ferendum to the Lewis and Clark
fair. The Courier lias done nothing
of the kind. Any man or set of mon
have a right under the laws of the
state of Oregon to invoke the referen
dum upon any question that has been
enacted into law, provided thoy secure
a proper number of signatures and put
up a sufficient amount of money.
While we know that Oregon is badly
governed and hopelessly tax riddon we
bolieve the people will make a mis
tako mid ono that it will tuko yours
k correc t if they defeat the proposed
Fair cither by the referendum or in
any other manner. This is only a
bolicf on our part. The more people
you have in Oregon the lower will
your tax rate be and tho better your
roadH, schools and churches. The
Lewis and Clufk Fair will advertise
tho resources of this state in a single
KOHKon more and to a hotter advantage
than thoy have boon advertised in all
tho years that Oregon has been a
state. Tho trouble with Oregon is
that her people do not pull together
Labor is suspicious of capital, and
would strike at capital by defeating
the Fair. At tho same timo the
moneyed men of tho state and tho cor
porat ions and tho city of Portland will
put up tho big end of tho money to pay
for the Fair and they are not so heart
ily inoculated with tho Fair idea but
what they would willingly call tho
entire matter off. Ono section of Ore'
gon is jealous of every other sootiou.
Tho country is making eyes at Port
Und and calling that city a hog. The
town is possibly not doing so much
for tho remote parts of tho state as it
might. One suction of tho state is
docrying and belittling every other
part of the state. There has been an
order issued in l.he City of Oregon
City by the fire department that evory
resident must scrape tho moss off his
house top. If this order could be
made general ami of universal appli
cation and evory Oregon inn bo re
quired to scrape the moss off of his
hack, this great state would take a
long step in the right direction. Many
Oregonians bolieve in tho old maxim
"That all thiugs come to him who
waits." That being true, the lap of
Oregon ought to bo full of all this
world affords. But Oregon has been
waiting now for about half a, century
for her ship to come in "from sea."
The wind is now in tho right direc
tion and many things nro coming our
way. oliail we miviiviik "r
opportunities or shall we let the tide
of emigration flow around and about
08 while and the car of human pro
gress paFses on iuto other states. We
Joe Fromong.Who Lived and Worked,
Has Paid Na' ure's Last Debt.
Joe Fromong is dead. The jolly.good
natured, honest workioimian has paid
Nature'tt last deb. Strong ol body and
loving all the world he has laid bis bur
den down and will sleep until that great
day "When the dead shall rise and
walk." He was an bonest man and
loved all men with whom be cam in
contact. He laughed in the face of all
the world because in his heart there was
nothing of which he was ashamed. He
was a laboring man, an honest son of
toil, and earned his right to live by the
sweat of his face. Tre burden he car
ried in life he hag laid down and will
await the "Swe3t bye and bye" to meet
the good wife and loved ones.
Less than two weeks ago that most
dread of all diseases, typhoid fever, laid
its hands upon bim, Its ravages the
s'rong man could not withstand and
Tuesday morning he passed away.
xi is funeral was conducted Dy tne
A. 0. U. W .of which he was a member,
and the Knights of Pythias to which he
belonged. The ceremony at the Wood
men hall was under the auspices of the
A.O. U. W.. and the services at the
grave was conducted by the Knights.
Many friends of the dead were present
at the hall and marched with the funeral
cortage to the grave Hat Mountain View
cemetery, where the body was kid to
rest. Tne services were impressive to
all of those wl;o knew and loved the
good, honest man, whose life had gone
out and who awaits the great awaken-
ng. Mr. fromong leaves a wife and
family to mourn his loss and many, many
friends who will miss his smiling face
and cheery greeting.

Franklin Milts. M. D., LL. D., the Cele
brated Chicago Specialist, Will Send
$4.00 Worth of his New Special
Treatmeut Free to Each of
MACHINERY STARTS ON SUNDAY
AND ICS IS BEING TURNED
Twenty Five Tons Is the Capacity of

When an experienced physician offers
to give away $40,000 worth of a New
Treatment for diseases of the heart,
nerves, stomach or dropsy, it is conclu
sive evidence that tie has great fait n in
iV Ad'J when hundreds of prominent
people freely certify to his unusual skill
and the superiority of His New Special
Treatment, his liberality is certainly
worthy of serious consideration.
That Dr. Miles is one of the world's
most successful physicians is proven by
hundreds of testimonials from well
known people. One patient cured after
failure of eleven Grand Rapids physi
cians, two after being given up by six
nd seven Chicago physicians, another
after oine leading doctors in New York
City, Philadelphia and Chicago failed.
1000 testimonials sent upon request.
The eminent Rev. W. Bell.. I). D. of Diurtan.
O., Oeu. 3ec'y of Foreign Mlnloni, writes editori
ally in the Slate Sunday School Union:
"We desire to attte that from rarsonai acquaint,
anco we know Sr. Milt'B to be a moat skillful
specia'ist a man who haa spared neither labor nor
money to keep hinuelf abreast of the great ad
vancement iu medioal science.',
The late Prof. J 8, Jewell, M. D., said: "by all
means publish your surprising results.'' Prof.
J. e. Rose, M. D., Kx Pres. of Rush Medical Col
lege, wrote in 18 H: "Dr. Miles hns taken two
courses of my private instruction in distaaes of
the heart and lungs." Mr. Truman UeWeese,
editor ol Chicago Times-Heiald, states: "Dr.
Miles cured me ot Inherited headache and dizzl
rest," The well-known manufacturer of Free
port, 111.. J. C.Scott, says: "1 had iruitle sly spent
thousands of dollars on physicians until I consult
ed Dr. Miles." Mrs. Frank Smith, of Chicago,
writes: Dr. Miles cured me of drupsy after five
eadiug physicians had given me up."
This new system of Special Treatment
is thoroughly scientific and immensely
superior to the ord nary methods.
As all afllicted readers may have $4 00
worth of tre tment free, we would ad
vise them to send for it at once.
Address, Dr. Franklin Miles, 203 to

Neatly all of the stock men on the

Ernest Russell took a bear hunt on
the upper Molalla a few days ago. He
returned in a short time with a bear

was some ten or twelve feet in length.
In order to reach the young cayotes
Ernest had to take his shoes off and en

P. M. Boyles and wife have gone to
Polk county to visit Mrs. Boyles' father.
Mr. Vernon the old gentleman is very

to get a photo of some falls on Fall Creek

The Oregon City Ice Works, the prop
erty of J. P. Lovett, with brand new ma
chinery in every department, started ud
lor the summer's run on Sunday last.
While not a large plant it is n first-class
one in every particular. The machinery
and equipment is new. The plant has
Deen reconstructed lrom the ground up
and everything about the plant is in fine
condition. The capacity of the works is
25 tons of ice per day. Only the
purest of filtered water is used in man
ufacturing this ice, and the product is as
fine as can be turned out artificially or
natural)! any where in the land. Mr.
Lovett will not only supply the local
trade but he will also ship considerable
of the product to nearby points. To one
who has not inspected the inside of an
ice plant its workings are Bomewhat ot a
mystery and a curiosity. The plant at
Oregon City, however, will do credit to
any small town on the coast.
A. Baumann with his wife and fam
ily left Oregon City on Thursday for
San Jose,Cal., where he expects to make
his future home. Mr. Baumann has
been a resident of Clackamas county for
the past ten years. He has been a good
farmer and a good Democrat and for
both reasons we are loth to Iobo him.
He has sold his 17 1-2 acreBof land near
Elv to Georse Avery, a newcomer in
these parts. Mr. Baumann saBthat
reason wuv lie is leaving Oregon is the
high rate of taxation in these parts. He
likes the country and the people, but he
he says he will not stand for the tax
rare. It is too bad that Clackamas
county should lose so good a man as Mr.
lSuummin, but we can't expect all of the
good people to live in Oregon, and we
hope that Jthe new man from the East
who has taken lus place will be ss good a
citizen and make as fair a name as has
Mr. lieaumanu. Mr. Beaumann ex
pects to take up a homestead in South
ern California, where the sun shines

able to be about he is quite a cripple.

Mr. Jones, the Oklahoma man who
bought Kd Payne's 52-acre farm on the
Molalla road at $50 an acre, has a Bnap.
There are 1G acres beariug hops on the
place and plenty of good buildings, and
if he had paid $1000 more it would still
have been a good bargain for him.
