It is of th utmost Importune to the
fhtur ntrrity of On'pw t'tty that it lit
limit uliould l cstahlishcd, mid thit t
once. Tlio defeat nf tho rvnt ordinance

Ot city of Hillshoro, containing no more
than .u-hatf the population of Oregon
Oily, established a lire limit, ami within
tliat time no less than a doion brick miild
inpi have hen orctod within that limit, a
nnmhfr of them two anil thtv stories high.
If thf rtty of Hillshoro ran accomplish all
this w ith none of the wealth attendant on
tht stahlishm ot of xt-nsi e manufactory
ies, what is it not possible for Oregon City
4odoT Vancouver was principally compos
ed of dilapidated wooden buildinp-auil tire-
traps until the great tire ol two years ago,
when a Ore limit was established, and now
hercttiicns point with pride to her suhntan
tiat brick buildings, and visitors from every
part of the country are attracted by her
olid prosperity. Visitors to the city, who
iave capital to invest, are disgusted with
the unimproved condition of Main street,
ud the wooden shacks that adorn this
thoroughfare, and leave Oregon City with
aot a favorable impression, which in pub
lished abroad to our discredit. The con
atruciion of a new water pump, and more
perfect equipment ol the tire department,
it no just excuse for opposing a lire limit
It is a shame and a disgrace if Oregon City
cannot atford to have a tire limit, when less
pretentious towns have prosered under
roch regulations. Is it possible the microbes
of ransslMckism re permeating the at
mosphere when such bitter opposition is be
ing airitated airaiust a lire limit?
PtorLc living in the Butte creek and Mo
lalla country have unliuited faith in the
possible and rery probable construction of
the Butte Creek & Oregon City railroad.
Hon. E. M. Hartmau, of Marjuam, states
that Mr. Scott, one of the original project
ors of the road is a gentleman of means
and is possessed of indomnitable energy,
which is a much nee-le 1 quality in railroad
building. Oregon City a an important
terminus of this roa I must aid in pushing
this road to an early completion, as a Mad
from this city to Salem, tapping the rich
sections of Molalla, W.ilhoit, Butte creek,
etc., would le an institution ol great im
portance to this entire section of Clackamas
The time is rapidly approaching when
the stiervisors of the various road districts
will begin their animal quota of work on the
thoroughfares. The most of the road work
ia usually hurried through in the spring,
and the majority of the roads receive little
or no repairs until the next season arrives.
Good roads are a matter of economy to the
public, as they enable the farmer to haul
much heavier loads to market, with a cor
respondingly less wear and tear of horse
flesh and vehicles. The road siierviors
should levy repeated assessments until the
roads are in fine condition, as the additional
outlay would be returned to those who use
the roads with compound interest.
The city council is awakening to the re
alization of the facts suggested by The Kh
TEBraisE, that soinething should lie done
towanls cleaniT:g up the back vard and ul-
leys. The council Wednesday niu'lit in-1
structe l the committee on health and -
lice to take active measures in notifving the
resiJents and occupants of business houses I
to rectify the condition of their b. k VMr,,J
and alleys. This action is timely, and it is
hoped that all good citizens will aid them in
every ossible way with their good work.

A Correspondent from Wilhoit last week j
justly makes complaint of the way in which
some commm.ities are having trouble
among themselves, and to settle these etty
disturbances invariably resort to the courts
as a means of redress, and always at the ex
pense of of the county. Innumerable wit
nesses are subpoened, who are ever anxious
to draw mileage and fees as a means of
making a "stake." The Court should very
proierly shut down on such cases, and dis
pense with the witnesses as quickly as pos
sible. A Chicaoo doctor has been investigating
the la grippe, and secured seven microbes of
that disease which were floating through
the air awaiting an opportunity to crawl
down the throat of some unfortunate victim.
If the doctor would bring his nii.jiobe in
strument to Oregon City, he would have no
difficulty in securing a varied supply from
the effluvia arising from the back cards ami

"Sandy" Olds says that hereafter he is a
democrat, as he gives Judge Thayer the
credit for saving him from the gallows. The
democrats are welcome to "Sandy," as the
republican party has no use for such mate
rial, and the Portland Telegram, democratic,
jn commenting on this new addition to their
ranks, says that they do not want him.
Jodok Taylor sentenced "Sandy" Olds,
the murderer, to one year in the peniten
tiajy, but when he convenes the next term
of circuit court in Clackamas county, he
will likely send up the petty thieves now
confined in the county jail lor three or four
It has been hinted that hereafter when
Portland murderers desire to have their
necks saved from the gallows, lliey will be
