The Fourth of July
day in Oregon City.
John J. Cooke is not only a poli
tician and a real estate man, but he
is an orator. , He speaks - loud and
long and what is more what he says
is to the point. And he generally
carries his point.
After reading the acojunt of some of
the outrages committed in this country
it becomes a grave question as to
whether we are competent to teach
ciilization to the Russians, Filipinos
and other so-called "civilized" na
There are not two better banking
institutions on the Coast than can
be found in Oregon City. The Com
mercial Bank, presided over by that
Prince of good fellows, Charlie Lat
ourette, and looked after by his
brother, Clinton Latourette, and
Fred Myers and the younger Lat
ourette as cashier and book keeper
is an ideal institution. Possibly there
may be better people but we have not
met them. And then across the street
the Bank of Oregon City does business
at the old stand. The Messrs. Cau-
flelds and Mr. Kelly are' all that
gentlemen can be and are helpful to
the very best interests of the city.
If there were more Latourettes and
more Caufields in Oregon City it
would be a bigger and better place,
and who knows, there may be more

Apparently Servia has become jeal
ous of Breathitt County, Kentucky.
JIf you want a good thing take the
rinnrifir. The more you see of it the
better you. will like it.
' An hanest man and a sober printer
are hard to find in Oregon Oity. (See
Porter, page 8, book 1. ) .
There are some people inregon City
who evidently believe that the Fourth
of July oomes on the 5th this year.
So be it.
Who knows any thing about the J.
W. Parrish claim which was passed by
congress and approved by the Presi
dent? Ask Hedges.
President Baer has triumphed again
but nothing would induce a republi
can congress to make the Interstate
Commereo law effective.
There is good reason for the en
thusiasm wiht which many prominent
senators hail the vice presidential can
didacy of Mr.. Beveridge. The man
who presides over the Senate has very
little opportunity (to talk. To have a
supressed gas bag is a desideratum.
With eminent good sense, Balitmore
promptly sent $2,000 worth of oolth
ing to the sufferers of the Gainesville
tornado. It was far better than
money for the people needed clothes
and had no near market in which to
We wonder what effect that Ohio
tariff plank will have on "Uncle
Billy" Allison's harmony, peace-at-
any-price tariff plank.
The Secretary of Agrioulture de
clares that he has discovered a combi
nation of nutritious ? grasses which
will grow in the arid region. Mean
while the Secretary of the Interior is
busy trying to obliterate the arid
region by irrigation. "
A Kentucky horse wiih a Kentucky
jockey won the Amorican Derby at
Chioaeo on last Saturday. Mark
Twain's comment on the citizenship
of that state is probably true. "The
first citizen of Kentucky" is undoubt
edly the horse.
' Oregon Oity has not only given to
the Hoppner sufferers, but they have
argoed to go ahead with their cele
bration on the Fourth.
We toil and spin and weave a webb
in which to catoh a fly. In Oregon to
use the native vernaoular to catch a
"sucker" or rather a "new commer."
The Servians appear to be deter
' mined to prevent their ( brother who
emigrated to this oountry from out
doing them in the line of rioting. ,
A dispacth from Oaloutta announces
that ihore will be a surplus oi
64,000,000 bushels of wheat for export
from India this year. Better hold it
for the perennial India famine.
Morgan Necessary eloped with
Pearl Hobs down in Indian Territory
and a judge hoartlossly disregarded
Morgan's necessity and sent bin to
jail presumably for "hoss stoaling."
Tlio supreme court of Missouri is
working overtime those days granting
new trials to tho boodlers. Evidently
the MisHouri judiciary does not intend
that anybody shall, suffer injustice
The meeting of the council on Mon
day night was of somewhat a hot
nature. The discussion of the South
End road can always be relied upon
to stir up the native sons. Some very
hot speeches were made and some ugly
aoousations bandied about ; but it was
at last and finally settled to build the
road and bo there you are. Let us
hope that will end the matter and
that the road will be built without
further delay or friotion,
That the city of Portland is a big
hearted generous city has been illus
trated during the past week to all the
world. They have given to the Hep
puer sufferers $25,000.00, -They have
oalled off thoir Fourth of July cele-
' bration and have turned, the money
over to that desolated city. Don't
kick any more at Portland and Port
land merchants, but go and do like

gon City fcould have shipped a little
freight on that oar and would not
have missed "it. "
President Rossovelt proposes to
clean the rascals out of the Postoflioe
Department and then entertains the
proposition to make Matthew Stanley
Quay chairman of the national oom
inittoeo. What a political paradox.
The founder of the Oregon City
Courier, after "sPUHKing" on his
friends for two or three weeks in
Yamhill county and teaching the boys
over that way how to roast crawfish,
lias returned to his regular "beat."
And now tho President's enemies
nro circulating the rumor that lie
will call for tiriff revision after his
election. Mr. Roosevelt will nover
do anything of the kind until he is
assured of election in 1004.
Civil Servioe Commissioner ProO'
tor's report on the Washington; poBt
office demonstrates that there lias
beou shameloss prostitution of the
postal service for partisan and per
sonal ends by a former first assistant
tjostmaster Eouoral, with the con
nivance of his Postmaster General.
Mr. Payne himself is a notorious
practioal politician." Under these
circumstanes it is reasonable to ex
pect genuine reform under republican
A recent issue of a banker's publica
tion gives the true key to the Aldrich
financial scheme. It is to replaoe the
present circulation, based on United
States bonds, with a circulation based
on industrial bonds. The beauty of
this scheme would be that eventually
the credit of the nation would become
so involved with the trusts that it
would be impossible for the govern
ment to act against the latter with
out undermining the eutire prosperity
of tho nation.
The crookedness and rottenness at
Washington in the Post Office depart'
meat is absolutely amazing. Day after
day as the experts dig deeper and
probe further into this mass of corrup.
tion and stealing the bigger game
there is uncovered. It seems that
everybody from the Postmaster Gen
eral down the line has had a hand in
the stealing and all without exception
will have to go, It is a sad comment
ary upon the civilization of the
twentieth, century that publio officials
in so high a position can not be found
who will or can administer a public
trust without peculation and stealing.
The present addminsitration will have
a good big burden of dirt and filth to
carry when it goes before the people
for a vindication next year. The
rascals will have to be turned out and
the sooner the better all around.
