The lecture of F.li Perkins will abound
in genuino wit and humor. Tho fol
lowing testimonial is fiom Rev. A. J.
Montgomery, pastor of the Presbyterian
church ol this city ami speakes for itself:
To Whom it May Conckiin :
I can most heartily commend the
lecture of F.li Perkins, to be given at
Shively's April 2d, to all who enjoy a
good laugh. In his line his lecture is,
perhaps, without peer on the American
platform. He is the (tinny man of the
people. Some of the so-called wit of
humeroua lecturers is so abst nice that
tho ordinary hearer requires an illus
trated diagram to see the "joke." No
one needs a dingiam with Eli's jukts.
It Is a (act that Perkins goes year after
year to the sumo towns. This is the
highest commendation that can be given
to anybody he takes.
I feel sure that no one ean regret go
ing to here the lecture on tho 2d of
April. A. J. MoNTtlOMKKY,
OitKtioN City, March 28th.
Everybody will do well to attend Prof.

the close of each lecture public examin
ations will be given. These lectures

DK, COWAN ON WOOD C1TIZKNHHIP.
In his morning sermon last Sunday,
Dr. Cowan of the Congregational church
discoursed unoii good citizenship and the
duties pertaining thereto. He was e
tclatly plain In his remarks concerning
the responsibility of city officer and the
shifting am) shirking so ofien practiced
by them in the discharge of their duties.
The following is a brief synopsis of Dr.
Cowan' sermon, bis text being, "Should
such man as I flee?" Neh, '1:11 : .
One thing from which Nehemiali would
not flee wa olllclal duties. Ifewaaa
model mayor, such as would hove de
lighted the heart of Parkburst. HI
answer to his timid friends who w arned
him to beware of the power of bummer
politicians and city hall rings, would
have Ih-cii, " Should such a man as I
flee?" A to enforcing laws not sup
ported by public opinion, he would have
said, " I have a right to assuma that
what the people have dulilieraUdy writ
ten out on the statute book i public
opinion, rather than the clamor of the
mob down street." A for personal dan
ger Udng shot at, perhaps who ought
to care for that? If Torn Jones, the poor
widow's son, who enlisted the other day,
should decline to go to the front (or fear
sotiiclxHty would shoot at him, you would
my, " What'sa soldier for, but to be shot
at?" And i( you would say that to a poor
soldier like Tom Jones, would you say
less to the bead of a great municipality?
If Nehemiali bad been night watchman
at the mills, he w ouldn't have said, "The
company are quite as much Interested in
this property as I caix be. Therefore, if
they don't want it destroyed, let them
look out (or the thieves and incendiaries
themselves." And if he bad been mayor
of a city, he wouldn't have said, "The
people are the ones Intotested. There
fore, if they want the law enforced, let
them enforce them. Let the women and
the picachcrs, and a few specially con
scientious citizens smell out the lawless
ness which my iiolice can't discover, and
organize and punish." What's the nee
of having watchman if we have to do
our own watching just the same? And
what's the use of a city government, if we
have to be our on police and our own
magistrate just the same?
Hut another thing Nehemiali would
not flee from was unofficial renonni
bilitv. He was mayor of Jerusalem by
roval appointment, but be was elected
by Providence before be was apiointed
by the king. Circumstance and per
sonal fitness went !efor the king's
commission. In every city there are
some elected to responsibility by the
votes of the people; others are elected
no less truly, but it is by appointment of
Providence. Wealth, education, social
Knition, give them an influence and con
trol in the a (fairs of tho community,
from the responsibility of which they
cannot escape. I presume I could write
out the names of one hundred men here
in Oregon City who together hold in their
hands more power to control the social
and civic life of the community than all
the other 41KX) combined. Such men
sometimes do not even vote. They think
of themselves as one out of five thousand
in public res)onsibility, and wash their
hamta of even that small share. Instead,
each of them it one out of one hundred
perhaps one out of twenty-five, or even
ten, and whatevet happens on our
streets the ruin o( boys, tho ruin of
young girls, the sorrow and disgrace
which comes to happy homes, they are
responsible, not as one out of a great
multitude, but as one out of a very (ew.
What we need today is good citizen
ship among the masses; but what we
need far more is good citizenship among
the rich, the educated, the influential.
What we need is Nehemiahs, who, real
izing how much depends upon them, ac
cept the responsibility bravelv, saying,
" Should such men as we flee? And who
is there, that being such as we. would
go into tho temple to save his life? We
will not go in !"

to Corinto, on the Pacific side. From
that point he takes a steamer south to
Caracas in South America, crossing the
Isthmus of Panama on the way. The
ride to Tegucigalpa was made on mule
back over the mountains, and lasted six
teen davs; the second half of the trip to
Corinto will require about ten days more.
Mr. Davis is accompanied by Mr. Henry

To early riser on last Monday morn
ing Mt. Hood presented the apiearance
of an active volcano. An immense
volume of what appeared to be steam or
light smoke was coming from the sum
mit and being carried off by the wind
to the north. It looked as though it
was pouring out of the summit of the
old mountain, and many who saw it
were sure the old volcano had aroused
from his slumber and would give as a
repition of hi firing efforts in the cen
turies gone by. A the "smoke" all
cleared away in a couple of hours
and no further indications were mani
fested it was doubtless a
freak Ot the
wind in blowing the moist air of the
valley over enows of the summit, con
densing it into a heavy fog. There is
little liklihood of Oregon's sentinel
mountain breaking out again into an
active volcano for it has evidently
