FK11UY, JUNK 19, ISM Omsii to i misconception of instriio lions of the proprietor, the writer ftill to convey his real intention in th article on the liuiuslrial Exposition in last week's Kit- TunrRisi. After the coniiiilttee apiwinted by the botml of trale to rer an exulta tion, had decided not to proceed, it nu not the intention of Thi KuTitrMsa to tuper- eed thia committee by preparing an xtillilt tor the Industrial Kxpoaition, but to have a pariuanent exhibit of Clackamas county productions in tlx business oftic of thia journal. Already tome valuable samples have sent in, and the patrons and read ers of this paper are nxpiested to bring sam ples of grains, grasses, fruits, vegetables, minerals, woods, and manufactured pro ducts, which will be appropriately label! with the name and residence of the pro ducer. It is not the intention of this office to prepare and arrange an exhibit for the Industrial Exposition. Hut there is an urg ent need of a place where immigrants and people trom the Kast can see with theirown eyes the productions of the soil of Clacka mas county. Hundreds of people come to Oregon City, remain a few hours, and leave with the impression that this is all there is of Clacksniiis county. To remedy the ex isting condition of affairs, Tux KTicrRisB will give space and properly arrange such exhibit, am! asks the co-operation of its nu merous readers. It will prove valuable as an advertising medium for Clackamas coun ty, and will undoubtedly be the means of adding desirable population to this section. This will prove a cheap as well as effective way of advertising, and can 1 made a great success. 8ami le of grasses should be gath ered at once and matured in the shade. Send in yor.r specimens, and we will have something to show the intending settler that Clackamas is a producing county. It is high time the )eople of Clackamas county were "getting a move on them" in the matter of securing belter mail facilities. I'eople living along the Clackamas in the neighborhood of Viola, Logan, etc., bitterly complain that they do not get the Oregon City paper.-, which are sent out on the trains Friday n.ormng, until the following Mon day or Wednesday. This is neither the fault of the Oregon City or Clackamas post offices. The mad for l.ogan and Viola leaves r'ackamasat 1 o'clock 1". M. Fridays, and the Oregon City papers are evidently carried through by the mail agents to l'ortlaml, where they lay over two or three days be tore they urc returned to Clackamas the dis tributing office. The only direct remedy is fort!.e people living on the m-r Ciacka mas to petition for a mail service direct from OrennCity. and havetlie same endorsed hy lie t-ui!,e men of this place, and with the proper recommendations and forward ed to our representatives at Washington. The remedy can behadfor the asking, and no delay should be made in drawing up and circulating such petition. Tn consolidation ticket was elected In Portland last Monday by majorities ranging from 4000 to M4 for the city otllclala, and thecouncilmen were elected from l.W to tl7 majority. McKito.KY is vindicated by the republi cans of Ohio, who have unanimously nomi nated him tor governor. Unbounded party enthusiasm was exhibited. Thousands of people assembled to do honor to Major Mc-Kinley. It i a si Kit sea la closed, and the two great governments will protect the seal.

Thi horrible accident at Hern June 15, resulting from a broken railroad bridge, and precipitating hundreds of pas sengers with the wreck into Ilia river, rivals in horrors the Johnstown disaster. Mem bers of the leading houses of Hale were ameng the unfortunate passengers, and in some Instances whole families were lost. Thi baccarat scandal ol Umdon, wherein it appears that the prince of Wales ami sev eral ol the nobility of England were impli cated in gambling for heavy stakes is shak ing the very foundation of the royal throne. When Americans lose a few thousand in a social same of poker, the matter is never mentioned, but it is evidently different with the aristocratic Britisher, NEWS I'ROM HARLOW'S. TIIK FI.Ad WAS AT HU. MAST. Urge Crowd lit Attendance, New People Coming ami on the (J round. Other Moles of Interest. The Government is paying McKinley prices for Indian supplies. The contracts recently awarded, amounting to over $2, OfO.OO, call for blankets, clothing, woolen and worsted manufactures, calico, hardware, household utensils, agricultural implements, provisions and grain. As General Bussey sums up the result: "For all manufactured goods the prices were as low or a shade lower than last year; for beef, flour, and other agricultural products the prices were somewhat higher." While the tanner and mechanic are enjoying greater prosperity and still brighter prospects under the influ ence of the new tariff, all manufactured goods, including woolens, cottons, boots and shoes, leather, iron and steel and hardware of every description, cost the Government a iittle. less than last year. It is stated thai a religious association in Iowa has decided to form a gospel trust, in order that " young men desiring to preach should be discouraged," as they ''interfered with men already ordained and getting good salaries." This brings the gospel down to a business basis, and as preachers mustjlive as well as other people, there seems no cause for complaint. It may be found in the long run that the welfare of true religion will be found in a return to primitive systems some of which still prevail in the commun ion of Rome. When a person conies w ithin the influence of the gospel, and is impelled to preach and spread it, he will give himself to the church, living in its service, and so employed, is sheltered and protected during life. Tils great importance of having an open river hctuecn the Falls and Portland Is daily becoming more apparent, hor the first time our saw and pulp mills are getting logs from the Columbia. Spruce and Cot tonwood are both suitable for the manufac ture of pulp, of which there are immense ouantilies up and down theColuinbia. The increasing commerce of Oregon City is an urgent apeal for an open channel. ; Thi people ol Oregon City should rally to the front, and substantially assist West Ore gun City in celebrating the Fourth of July in a manner befitting this national event. This celebration can be made an eventful one and the people should be liberal in con tribuling to make It a grand affair. Oregon City successfully observed Iecoration day and it will redound to its credit to aid the West Oregon City people in having a patri otic, glorious old Fourth of Julv celebra tion. I Thk present arrangement at the slate S'ii- itentiarv, wliercbv Messrs. iioldsmilh A Lowenberg secure all the prison hilxir of the slate, will soon expire by limitation. This contract prison lulor is ruinous to the liest interests of the country, and other methods should be adopted to keep the convicts em ployed. In a nnniberof the Southern states ihe convicts are employed in working the stite nads in the various sections with lien eticial results. It would lie a grand thing for the roads of Oregon if the convict labor of the state could lie thus used. Thk present stand still in the values of town property can be accounted for from the very fact, that it has far exceeded the actual value of farm lands to an unreasonable ex test. But this state of values will not long continue. Farm lands are steadily appre ciating in value, and prices are surely ad vancing. The vastareaof government lands subject to homestead and pre-emption en try, have heretofore had a tendency to keep the prices of farm property at a minimum fig ure, liut now that desirable government land is hard to get, the fortunate possessor of farm hinds will find them rapidly increasing In v.ihic, and town real estate will advance in. proportionate ratio.

The entire citizens' consolidation ticket w as elected in Portland last Monday. The Oregonian, regardless of the 0ien sack of the bosses and the champions of ring rule and corruption, made a fight for the people and was upheld by the better class of busi ness men. But this wss only the beginning, for after the consolidation election the bosses united their forces and made a vigorous tight But the Oregonian never relaxed its vigilance and the Evening Telegram and Oregon Express stood firm. It was conced ed a few weeks ago by a majority of the people that it was exceedingly doubtful if consolidation would carry, hut these Journ als never swerved from the line of duty, and the people who desired pure government stood by their convictions. The people of Oregon can now point with pride to their metroiolis of 80,000 inhabitants, and rejoice that it has an honest municipal government I.vstk.U) of the tariff policy of President Hamsun's administration diminishing our fuH-n ' umerre, asthe free-traders so con fidently , rediclcd, the autumn export trade scctim; to Portland. ,mi, : -1 he t!.o large.st on record.

Thibx will soon be an opportunity to remedy the gigantic evil of contract prison labor in the Oregon state penitentiary. The contract held by Messrs. Goldsmith A low enberg, the stove foundrymcn.whereby they control the working force of the state peni tentiary, expires by limitation. There will now be no valid excuse of not getting rid of this obnoxious arrangement. Contract prison labor in the Pacific states is working a hardship to manufacturers as well as skilled labor. In the statesof both Califor nia and Washington, grain bag manu facturers control the labor ol the penitentiaries, making it impracticable for that industry to be carried on in Oregon. A well known capitalist, who fore saw that the soil of this country was admir ably adapted to the production of flax, atul that the straw could lie used in the manu facture of grain bags to good advantage, ser iously contemplated the establishment of a bag factory in Oregon City but found It was impossible to compete with the peniten tiary made bags of Washington and Califor nia. The Canadian government has placed a heavy tarill' on penitentiary stoves brought from the United Ktates, which will have a tendency to discourage their production. Okeoon C'itv must awake to the import ance of holding her prestige as a commerc ial center. liailroads have it in their power to make and unmake towns and we must have railroad communication with interior points if Oiegon City expects to remain the commercial center of Clackamas count v. General Manager It. Koehler, of the South ern Pacific railroad says it is not profitable for them to litiild parallel lines of road, but that they intend to build feeders to the main line, tapping the best sections wherever practicable. Recently Mr. Koehler, accom panied by Mr. Wm. Barlow, went out from Barlows and made a general examination of the proposed line from Barlows to Wilhoit Springs, Thus it will be seen that there is a possibility of the Bouthern Pacific building a feeder from Barlows that would tap all that rich section of country to Wilhoit Springs. In that event Barlows would be come the commercial center for the thous ands of acres of fertile lands, whose outlet should he Oregon City. Again, when this is done there is nothing to pre vent their building another feeder up the Clackamas, taking the trade of all that In that instance ( trei'on mid be lell in the enld.
