The following subscription list is made on j
the plan suggested in the KsiisRrRisg a few
weeks ago to raise $li.iA for a nionutuent j
to Pr. John Mclaughlin, the father of Ore
gon, one-half of which should be by popular
subscriptions and one-half by legislative
appropriation. No one is employed to
solicit subscriptions. The object is to show
popular and spontaneous movement in
favor of the enterprise so that when the
legislature meets next January something
tangible can be presented to induce that
body to make th required appropriation.
Thus far the subscriptions are:
Thomas Chamian and wife,
George A. Harding and wife,..
George C. Brownell
George F. Horton 5.00
8. M.Ramsby, 5.00
P. F. Morey, 100.00
C.H. Caufield, 25.00

Cleveland's letter of acceptance has finally
made its aparanre. It is not half so long
as President Harrison's but it is twice as
bard to read on account of its ponderous
style and the dearth of thought in it It is
a straddle or a sprawl.
In one view of it the letter is remarkable
for the masterly way in which it succeeds in
saying nothing. In another view it upsets
the platform of the party as if to succeed
that document in the campaign. In still
another, and the one that most people will
take, it is merely Cleveland, heavy, dull,
abstract and unprogreasive.
His tariff doctrine is the same he held four
years ago, the fallacy of which has been
clearly shown, not in abstract theories but
in actual application, since then. " A tanrt
is a tax," he says, while everybody else
who thinks recognizes the fact that it is not
true except when duties are levied on the
free trade plan ; that is, on articles that are
not and can not be produced to advantage
in this country.
Cleveland had previously put himself on
record so often as a gold bug that he could
not deny that doctrine in his letter and he
is clearly out of joint with his party plat
form on that subject. His platitudes on
the few other subjects touched are unim
portant. The Dismemberment Scheme.
The reason alleged lor the proposed dis
memberment of Clackamas county and
cession of a large part of its territory to
Multnomah is that the people of the dis
trict aHected want better roads than they
now have. This is the chief reason, though
some argue that because they now go to
Portland owing to the roads from the pres
ent Multoniah county line being better than
to Oregon City their most natural outlet is
in that direction.
It is true that some of the Multnomah
county roads are better than some of the
Clackamas county roads. But Multnomah
is a small, though rich county. And still
the latest report of County Judge Moreland
stated that there were 500 miles of wagon
roads in Multnomah county which there
was not half money enough even to keep in
repair, let alone constructing new ones.
Add to that county new territory equal to
nearly one-half its present area and what is
the prospect for the construction of new
roads? It can't maintain the roads of its
present small territory in good repair and
doesn't pretend to be building new ones.
The road from Milwaukee to Portland is as
.bad as any in Clackamas county, and
Multnomah professes to be unable to put it
in rvhmI Iii. A tin nK4, truly, tor

The petition (or dismemberment ha been
extensively tiened in Multnomah county
oiivmlly in t'ortlatnl -we are told. That
doesn't mean anything to heuetll the peo-
pie of the section tlmt proposes annexation.

that would accrue to them Iroiu joining
Multnomah county. They have a large
share In the attaint of this county but
would lose their influence if attached to
Multnomah. They are more certain to get
good roads by remaining In this county and
proceeding in an intelligent, energetic way
to gut them. The people ahould consider
the matter well before signing th petition.
Mr. WtLKisaos's idea that the right to
keep cows and let them run at large In Ore-
j,,, city is Cukl givett is rather far fetched.
The right of a person to go naked is more
God-given than the right to keepcowa, but
one who would presume to perambulate the
sir.tsof the city without proper raiment
would get into trouble very speedily and
Mr. Wilkinson would not think of del'end-
ji,,. ,itn. The right of the people to own
' cows is no more (iod giieu than the other
I right of the people, through tlieir represent
I atives, to prevent the heat. from roaming

own cows have other rights than merely to

j Qiuntry is the plai-e for the animals and no
lone would thii.k of keeping them oil the
roads there. Hut there is as much unreason
in letting cattle range at will throt.gh a city
.re there is any self resect and regard

beasts in the parlor more in fact, for letting
them go at large is a public nuisance,
not merely a private one. It would he noth

While the "cow ordinance ' is under dis
cussion it should not be forgotten that Ore
gon City has an ordinance which makes it
unlawful for dogs to be at large in the city
unless a license has been paid for each ani
mal. The license for all the dogs In the
city expired September 1, since which time
only about half a dosen new licenses have
been issued by the city recorder. But
there are mors than half a down dogs
at large in the city. The dogs are a greater
nuisance than the cows, without possessing
as great com)insating qualitie aa the cow.
The street of a city is no place lor a cow and
it is certainly no place for worthless curs in
defiance of law.
It cab not but be gratifying to every pro
gressive citizen that the Seventh street
injunction xuit was decided by Judge
Stearns in favor of the city. It makes
possible street improvements, which, more
than anything else, are what Oregon City
needs. The manner in w hich the city was
fought in this matter made it esjiecially
galling to those who believed the Seventh
street property owners were in every way
in honor bound to pay for the improve
ment that has made that thoroughfare the
most metroolitan in the city and the one
street that is a credit to th town and espec
ially beneficial to the property abutting
THEyoung man Mr. I'ague left In charge
of the Portland weather and crop works
may have had some experience in forecast
ing weather, but when he sends out a
report that "what little corn remains in the
ground has been improved by the rains,"
farmers think he doesn't know what he is
talking about. Corn doesn't grow in the
ground like potatoes in this country.
Why do nearly all the leaders in the pro
cow movement take pains to disavow any
jiersonal interest in the matter one way or
another, and how does it hapiwn that most
of them are people in easy circumstances or
wealthy? The cows can't vote.
Correspondents should be careful lo state
what kind of grain is meant when giving
the yields In various localities whether
wheat, oats, barley, buckwheat or corn. 8o
many bushels of "grain" from so many
acres of land doesn't mean anything.
