Vile Clackamas county is advancing
with considerable rapidity it is still in need
of agencies for accelerating its industrial de
velopment. There are several under con
sideration at present. Among these are the
county fair project, the motor line to Port
land and the oeration of the fruit and veg
These projects are in no wise parallel.
They may all be secured and they would
mean development in as many different di
rections. The motor line depends on get
ting capital sufficiently interested to build
it. The fair must be inaugurated by men
who have large property interests to benefit
from it, for the man of small means who
needs his money to support his family can
hardly afford to take stock in a fair as an
investment. The cannery is a business
proposition that is reasonably sure to bring
large returns on the investment and as a
developing agent it can hardly be beaten.
The employment of 250 hands steadily in
a factory is alone a matter of no small im
port. The OregonCity cannery haseniployed
2T0 hands and it is now in first class condi
tion. The misunderstanding wtiich has re
sulted in closing the concern is regretted by
everybody. It can now be bought for ?00
on very favorable terms. It cost more than
twice that sum. The market that its opera
tion would give for fruits and vegetables
would be of incalculable benefit to the
county and city. It has been tested and
proved all that was claimed for it. It is to
be hoped that the cannery will be put on a
basis for running this season.
The Opening of the Campaign.
With the close of the democratic con
vention in this city this week the Clackamas
county campaign may be said to have really
opened. The people's party, the republi
cans, the prohibitionists and the democrats
will then nave their tickets in the field and
the campaign will take definite form which
it could not do while the ticket of one im
portant party remained an unknown quan
tity. At this writing the democratic convention
has not completed any of its work. It is to
be presumed, however, that it will nominate
the strongest ticket it can make up in the
hope that the people's party will draw sufB
ciently from the republicans to give the
democrats at least a partial victory.
Tlie work for the republicans will now
begin in earnest. The principles of repub
licanism, which have brought this country
its marvelous wealth and prosperity and
made the people the freest, happiest and
Diostenlightened on the face of the earth,
tnust be kept before the voters so that the
may understand them. This is the year of
the presidential election when votes are for
principles and policies of government and
riot merely for men.
Shimmering theories may be pleasing to
the sujierficial, but in government hard facts
must be faced and these facts in their true
relations should be kept before the people.
In this campaign of education the enemies
of republicanism have been in the field some
time. Republicans must get to work and
. keep at it till the rotes are polled.
Puj alil In Hold.
The (net that Senator Stewart hold a
number of mortgage on Oakland properly,
Hie principal ami interest of which are pay
alii in jtolil, litis no other alKiiillcance than
to call public Munition to the conaenueiiee
of a limp to the silver standard. In every
not of hand, bond, mortgagor otlier evi
dence ol indebtedness that lias boon given
since silver began to depreciate, the stipula
tion has been made that payment should
be made in i'nitod plates gold coin. What
ever notes, iKmdsor mortgage Mr. Stewart
may hold were, w ithout doubt, made in the
usual form. Hut let us suppose that the
free coinage bill had become a law. Not
only would the silver dollar be made a legal
tender, as it is now, but with the limit on
the silver issue removed silver w ould inevit
ably become the dollar of general com
merce. But it does not follow that silver
would )ay a debt made by express terms
payable in gold. Had the free coinage hill
passed, Mr. ftemart and all other creditors
would be entitled to gold, while wages
would be paid in silver. San Francisco
Thk democrats never weary of talking
about the "court house ring" and theeuor
inous county debt. Down in Jackson
county the denuvrats have piled up a dent
of more than flSO.OOO, compared with
which Clackamas county's debt is but a
mite, so that the amount paid in interest is
more than is annually expended on the
county roads. That is a specimen of demo
cratic economy. In Clackamas county but
tor the necessity for replacing a large num
ber of bridges destroyed by the Hood of IS.",
the present republican county administra
tion would have paid a material part of the
debt incurred bv democrats.
Wi lelieve in the freedom of the press.
hut we think Hon. T. A. Mcllride has cause '
of action against the Portland World for!
the alleged )mrtrait of him I'Ublished last
week. The liherties taken with the familiar '
features of our honored townsman should,
t think, lie brought to the attention of the
Oregon City vigilance committee.
The republicans changed th rules of the
house to prevent a minority filibustering so
as to obstruct business,
but the democrats
have fixed them so that an anti-silver mi
nority lias throttled a free coinage majority
inside their own party and that, too, with
out the trouble of filibustering.
Tvkinii a broad view of the working of
protection since ISlii, it appears that the
principal products the farmers sell have ad
vanced in price an average of 114 er cent.,
while on the other hand, the principal arti-1
cles they have to buy have fallen an average
of Til per cent.
Tuk Marion County Democrat objects to
Judge Moore Ix-caia it alleges him to be a
Northern ranlic railroad attorney. If it
should find that this is not true would the
Democrat lie in favor of him? The state
ment Is not true and it should lie currei tcd.

Ir any one doubts that we are in the
midst of an agricultural renaissance let him
note the list of farmers from Oregon City

What do the people of Clackamas county
think about the county fair project?
VARIOUS PRESS COMMENTS.
Detroit Tribune: The Democrats cannot
get rid of the free-coinage issue. They can
not be expected to return to power on a
platform of negations and quibbles. Vo
ters will want to know what the democratic
party proposes to do if it gets into power.
Their questions must be answered. The
equivocal attitude of the democratic party
on the silver question will arouse suspicion
and distrust, not only in the business com
munity, but among advocates of free coin
age. Harper's Weekly : The committee of the
house on civil service reform, of which Mr.
Andrew, of Massachusetts is chairman, and
Mr. Coombs, of New York, an active and
efficient member, has agreed to report to
the house Mr. Andrew's bill ,-to exclude
political influence in the employment of la
borers under the authority of the United
Btates." This is an admirable measure,
and provides for a great extension of the re
New York Press: The time is drawing
near when the eight-hour question will
come with its annual agitation before the
industrial world. For several vears past
the 1st of May has been marked by a con
certed demand on the part of nearly all
workers in one or more great industries for
a reduction of the hours of labor, eight be
lug the maximum generally fixed upon.
There are indications which point to a more
widespread and powerful movement of tne
kind this spring than ever before. It will
affect many trades and be simultaneous in
IX QUIETNESS SHALL BE VOUK STRENGTH.
Cleanne, cleanse your soul from sin and soil,
And poetry will fn itglow;
Quell In It greed and hate's turmoil .
And music from Its depth will flow.
Still, still In tranquil mood advance,
From overehangeful scene to scene;
Atoms and moleculeamay dance,
But man should hold a constant mien.
Mad, mad, my masters, ii the age,
It plunges down like Phseton'i team;
Consumed by fear, and lust, and rage,
We have forgotten how to dream.
Less, less of golden store be mine,
So that I may have quiet hours
In which to train my cottage vine
: And pick the priceless wsyalde floweri.

at its last meeting adopted the following
resolutions concerning Mr. Hurt, notice
of whose death was previously inado in
the Entekpkihk :
Whereas, It has pleased our heavenly
Father to remove from our midst our be
loved brother, Aletander Hart, and transfer
him to that celestial lodge " not made with
hands, eternal in the heavens," and that
this lodge has lost a good and useful mem
ber, and the community a good citizen,
Resolved, That this lodge room and fur
niture be draped in mourning and that the
brethren wear the usual badge of mourning
for the period of thirty days.
Unsolved, That a copy of these resolu
tions tic spread upon the minutes of this
lodge record and the usual black lines of
mourning be drawn around them.
Kesolved, That a copy of these resolutions
be transmitted under the seal of the lodge
to the family of our deceased brother, sym
pathising with them in their loss of a kind
husband and indulgent father.
Kesolved, That a copy of these resolutions
be furnished the county papers for publica
tion. IlKO. (,'. AllMSTIlONO, W. M.

Han Francisco Call : When our legal len
der went down W forty cents merchandise
went up nearly in proportion. Bo it will he
with silver unless the free coinage of silver
restores the two metals to their legal ratio
to each other, an effect which no one ex
pects to come at once.
