A call has been issued for the meeting
of delegates representing the People's
party at Oregon City in March, but the
call states that this convention will be
governed by the national convention
which meets February 22, for the pur
pose of consolidating all reform elements
into one party. If that convention
should decide not to consolidate and not
put a ticket in the field, it will have a
modifying influence on state conventions.
"I wish we women had some place of
eiitortAinment and instruction," a ma
tron was overheard lo rvmark at a recent
social gathering in Oregon City. "The
men have their kxltea and club rooms
suimttuoustv furnished and stylishly
maintained. They meet Companion
there any evening and am use them
selves in various ways, gather informa
tion from one another and enjoy free and
easy sociability. We women folks have
nothing of the k ind and I don't wonder
that some of us seek relief in gossip that
in more or less idle and possibly a little
"Yea," replied her companion, "the
men have many advantages of this kind
that we cannot enjoy, hut it wanld be
impossible for us to provide elegantly
furnished halls or club rooms without
disrupting the family. These things
cost the men a good deal of money and
our husbands would never Btand it to
have us spending similar sums for sim
ilar purposes. You know how grudg
ingly we get even a very small allowance
lor church work. The men have been
spending hundreds of dollars for their
high-toned lodges so long that they re
gard it as a matter of course, but they
would pronounce a woman's club a
baneful and unholy novelty. La, me! I
wish it were otherwise."
"I don't care," rejoined the m atron
who began the conversation, "the
women of other towns are not so con
fined as are we in Oregon City and I be
lieve we could find some means of
healthy and profitable divertisement. I
don't see why we couldn't do something
for ourselves here if we should try."
It isn't at all necessary to call atten
tion to the condition of Main street; it
commands for itself the entire attention
of the people who have occasion to travel
it But that nothing is done to remedy
its shocking condition is a shame to the
officials entrusted with the duty of look
ing after the public welfare. Primarily
the street is passable, as streets go, but
with the lack of sewerage and the ac
cumulated filth of a whole year for I
am informed that the street has not lieen
cleaned during this period the main
business street of a city of 5000 souls is
in a state infinitely worse than that of
the worst country roads, through the
neglect of those whose duty it is to
attend to it. To be sure the mud is not
so deep as on some of the country roads,
' k., l..nlr rtf ila Mmiuuitmn 1 ThaatMul
is a slimy, quivering, sickening river
of filth several inches deep from curb
stone to curbstone. It is not cieditable
to anybody that this is true.
Of course we ought to have a sewer
age system, and that we have not may
be charged up to that spirit of petty
jealousy or selfish greed that has cropped
out In the city council on more than one
occasion. I suppose there never was a
municipal board entirely free of this
smallness, but in the respect that affects
the sewerage matter there is enough
greedophobia in the Oregon City council
to inoculate a pretty large body, I be
lieve the Entirprisk touched upon this
point some time ago. If I were running
a newspaper I would keep the matter
But in the absence of sewers there is
no excuse for not cleaning Main street.
Once a year, forsooth ! Once a month is
too seldom. Instead of wallowing in the
slime eleven months of the year and
then spending several hundred dollars in
a grand scooping np of the soupy street,
why not have a garbage wagon once a
week, or at least once a month, gather
up the dirt and rubbish which the busi
ness men shall have been required to
collect in compact heaps in front of their
establishments? This would not cost
more than the present slovenly habit
and it is a method much in vogue in civ
ilized communities. This last is another
reason why we might profitably imitate
the custom. Roundabout.
Next Monday will be the regular meet
ing of the board of trade. It will be in
auguration meeting and there should be
a full attendance.

then sowing vegetables up Main street.
They were caught a short distance above
Canemah and some kind-hearted citi
zens of that burg repaired his wagon and
sent the Chinaman on his way rejoicing.

PARTLOW Near Mount Pleasant, Ja
uary 29, 1892, Frances L., wife of W,
B. Partlow, aged sixty-two years, five
months, twenty-four days.
Trie death of Mrs. Partlow was a sur
prise to all. She was sick only one week,
and peacefully paused away last Friday,
January 29 Her funeral was held at
her home Tuesday, February 2.
Mrs. Frances L. Partlow, daughter of
Sisson and Dorothy II. Chase, was born

ty, Vermont. She lived there until 1842,
when she removed with her family to
Hancock county, Illinois. Remaining
there until 1845, she, with her parent,
removed to Council Bluffs, Iowa. : In,
1850 they 'turned their faces westward,
and spent the winter In Ogden, Utah
Taking'up the line of march they arrived
in Oregon City in the summer of 1851.
She remained with her family until mar
ried to W. B. Partlow in Oregon City,
June 8, 1857. The result of this union
was three sons, James W., born March
15, 1859, Richard SiBson, bom August 18,
I860, who died in his infancy, and Edgar
Ballanger, born July 2, 1864, who lived
only two years and four months.
Having no daughter of her own Mrs.
Partlow took into her family Annie E.
Howland, to he brought up and treated
as her own child. Little Annie was
only nine years old when she was re
ceived into this family. She was treated
and loved as an own child, and In return
gave the respect and love of a daughter.
A more loving, dutiful child a mother
Too much cannot be sail of the gen
