The way to bnlld np Oregon
Ci'y is to flie Oregon City people yonr
Tlie Chtitaii()ua people re to be congrat
ulated on the flattering outlook for their
great assembly. In fact it niay well be
said that we are all Chautauqua people, as
the whole town has taken the matter in
band and our best business men are lend
ing their counsel and assistance. The as
sembly last year was gotten up in about
four weeks, and the response was bo unani
mous and enthusiastic that the question
was settled that this is the natural home
lor a permanent assembly. The park is
ready made, motor line already built, rail
way and boat transportation at hand, and
II in the center of population where vast
numbers can assemble and disperse at light
expense. As formerly cited in these col
umns, in October, 14, a committee of or
ganisation, consMng of several presidents
of our leading colleges, met here in Oregon
City, and together with some of our own
people, formed a loint stock company that
was duly incorporated under the laws of the
stale of Orecon, with stock divided into
1000 shares at 5.n0 each. The shares being
within reach of everybody has greatly facil
itated the sales so that permanent organiza
tion and election of directors will occur on
or before the opening of the assembly.
In the meantime tremendous interest has
been aroused all over the state, and our ex
changes are full of good words lor the en
terprise of Oregon City. By steady and
well directed effort now the prize of a per
manent assembly will be ours with all the
vast benefits resulting to the rommunity
and stale. Hundreds are planning to come
and tamp during the entire tenor eleven
days. Many are already picking out their
camping rpots and others are writing for
rates of board and lodging in Oregon Cilv
and Portland. All private families desiring
to take boarders or lodgers are requested to
send their names and rates at once to the
Plans for the auditorium have been
adopted and the site selected. By the hearty
co-operation of all, this structure can be
ready for the opening day and be hereafter
. used not only by the Chautauqua assembly
but by other great conventions that meet
bere from time to time.
Seven different associations have applied
for ground for headquarters and have se
lected locations. Inquiries for privileges
are coming in daily. All proceeds received
for privileges of restaurants, ice cream
stands, groceries, barber shops, photograph
galleries, etc., go to tlie Clmnlauqiia asso
ciation. The East Side railway is making arrange
ments to extend their line up farther into
the grounds so that people can land at once
in sight of the auditorium. The Portland
Genera! Klectric Company are considering
the proposition of putting seven arc lights
into the park for the use of the assembly.
The Willamette boats are arranging to run
excursions if the stage of water will permit.
No Intention was made to do Mrs. Katie
Kehm Smith an injustice in an article re
cently copied from theCorvallisTlmes, con
cerning a lecture delivered at that place. A
word was left out of one of the sentences by
the typo in setting up Ihe article, that per
verted its meaning, hut the omission was
merely a typographical error, and not In
tentional. Mrs. "Katie Kehm Smith has al
ways been considered by her acquaintances
a respected ami talented wonun, and has as
much right to leoture on her religions views
as the representative of any other sect, and
any lair minded person is w illing to accord
her this privilege. Mrs. Smith claims that
the minister's wife at Corvalllsdid not know
the meaning of Uie word " secular," which
was the cause of the misunderstanding
about the nature of the lecture, and that H.
t 11 y land, ef Oorvallis, made the contract
with the minister a wife for the chael, and
not Mrs. Smith. The Ashland Record gives
Mrs. Smith a very complimentary notice
concerning her recent lecture there on
What has Secularism done for Women?"
and her secular Sunday school work.
O.Niweek Irom next Monday the Grand
Army encampment will convene In Oregon
City, and it will be a great occasion. Gen
eral Commander Lawler will be here on
Tuesday, the tsth inst., and there will be a
vast gathering ot prominent men and wo
men, old soldiers, and sons of soldiers, Irom
every part of Oregon. The 17th and lStli of
June will be two big days for Oregon Citv,
and there will probably he a thousand vis
itors with us, and our oitlcens should take
pride in extending to them every courtesy.
To do proper honor to the occasion the city
should don holiday attire, clean Ihe streets
and contiguous alleys in order that the city
may have a presentable appearance, appro
priately decorate the buildings, and all con
cerned will feel better on account ol the
presence of so many of Oregon's solid citi
zens, whose interests are Identical with our
The re-election ofC. H. Caulield as a
member of the water commission by the
city council is a just appreciation of his
work on the commission for the past three
years. At the time of the oigauizatiun of
this commission the city water works were
a constant source ot expense to Oregon City
and were poorly equipped and a very indif
ferent service was given the patrons. Now
Oregon City can boast of a water service not
excelled by any city in the state. Two new
pumps have been put in, the mains entirely
relaid, and the area covered by the pipe
lines more than quadrupled since the com
mission has had charge ol the business. All
this has been done without running the
city hopelessly inro debt. The water works
from a losing investment have become a
profitable cue to the city, and in addition
to meeting the operating exsenees and in
terest on its indebtedness it now pays the
city a handsome dividend.
ferent surroundings, would never be lakn
for Indians. Some of the girls were really
handsome;; fair skinned, tall and well
formed. At Unit thought It seemed strange
that they should lie compelled to stay with
Indians, but it seems they do so from
choice and not compulsion. The reason
given Is that the Indian children are better
treated than our own sons and daughters.
They are clothed, fed and educated, all at
the expense of the foiled States. The very
best instructors aro secured, a pleasant
home is furnished and the Indian girl will
ingly leaves her home to go U school. If
she were ol our own blood she would not he
so fortunate in receiving au education as
she is as au Indian girl.
Supreme courts are noted lor declaring
legislative actk neonstitiitional, ami the
Sunday Mercury wants to know why can't
the supreme court of the Vniled States gel
together some of these line mornings, de
clare Grover Cleveland himself unconstitu
tional and be done with the mailer?
There are many reasons why the utile of
justice of the peaoe and the grand jury system
should be done aw ay w ith, says the Nehalrni
Journal. The rases where parties were
bound over with insufficient evidence lor
Ihe grand jury to convict are growing
alarmingly more plentilul. We note the
fact that out of about $J fees allowed in
the justice of the eace court only one con
viction was had. A case from the Poland
settlement, known as Cow Camp, inquiring
into the morals of a man and woman in
that vicinity, was token before a lialnier
justice of the peace, Irom thence to the grand
jury, and upon their tailing to indict, the
case was brought before 'Squire Van Pyke
for adjudication in this precinct. There
may be something morally wrongout at Cow
Camp, but there is certainly something
morally rotten in the present fee system of
witnesses, justices and jurors abolish the
system and have lower taxes.
The Women's Congress held in San Fran
cisco last week, says the Grants Pass Cour
ier, declared against the iron cage In which
woman is held, namely the corset, and also
resolved strongly against the habit of wo
man shutting herself in the house all her
life, denying herself sunlight and pure air,
and relying on patent medicines for relief
from consequent feebleness and disease.
Woman's future lies altogether in her on
hands. While she slavishly bows to the
dictates of fashion, or habit, or false mod
esty, she will continue to be man's belter
halt which stays In the house and dies,
while he lords it over creation and enjoys
healthy, out-of-door business and recreation.

Tim Massachusetts Slate Commission on
the Unemployed has been looking into the
professional tramp question, and recom
mends that tlie overseer in every town shall
provide decent accommodations of food
and lodgings for wayfarers, and in return
therefor exact work, treating the applicant,
it he refuses to work, as a vagrant. The re
port says it is desirable that the state should
provide an industrial farm where profes
sional tramps under 30 years of age may be
committed and taught some useful form of
work, provision also being made for men
ot similar age who voluntarily apply for ad
mission. As long as charity is given indis
criminately the commission looks for no
decrease of the evil, since, in their opinion,
the one thing the professior.nl tramp will
avoid, if possible, is the requirement of labor.
The young man with a small salary
realizes what a task it is to look after one or
two ordinary trunks, and keep them out of
the maw of the grasping boarding house
keeper. But imagine the troubles of Clans
Bpreckles, the sugar king, with a carload or
two of trunks traveling in Europe. A dis
patch states that he and his wife arrived at
a prominent hotel in J-ondon last Saturday
evening, and engaged a suite of rooms.
When the Spreckles family had fairly set
tled down In tbeir apartments, they learned
that the former occupant had suffered from
fever, and consequently left the hotel with
all their baggage in the middle of the night.
Tits new state constitution to be submit
ted to the voters ol I'tuh Is an unusually
conservative document in many respects.
It limits the number of state ofllcials as
much as possible, dispensing with a lieu
tenant governor, and the legislature will
consist ol sixty-three members. One clause
prohibits the state from contracting a debt
of over $100,000, and state, county or mu
nicipality will not he permitted to lend its
credit to any enterprise. There can be but
little doubt of the adoption of the constitu
tion, and Utah will probably be a lull-Hedged
state early in the ensuing w inter.
A statement published in the Portland
papers to the effect that tlie Studebaker
wagon company intended puttingone thous
and first class bicycles on the market in
that city at $2.5 each, is now pronounced a
canard. The item was generally published
and commented upon throughout the state.
The Studebaker's now state that they have
no intention of engaging in the manufac
ture of bicycles at present, and furthermore
that a first class bicycle cannot be made
The spring term of the United States Su
preme Court will be long remembered for
the importance of its decisions. First came
the income tax cases, next the Debs case,
and then the case of 1-etn Moon Sing, in
which the constitutionality ol the Geary
exclusion act was affirmed. It has seldom,
if ever, happened that three controversies of
so much interest and significance have been
settled in a single term.
SPIRIT OF THE PRESS.
The McMinnvilleTelephone-UegMer thus
defines the financial question: There arc
three policies before the American people on
the financial question. One is to preserve
the gold standard, in which case the circu
lating value of our paper and token money
will rest directly upon the gold reserve
maintained by the government. Another is
the silver monometallism exactly similar to
the gold monometallism of the present but
with a change of metals. In that case the
circulating value of paper and token money
will rest directly upon silver reserves and
gold will be a commodity the same as silver
is now. The third policy is to adopt free
coinage ol both gold and silver at a bime
tallic ratio and base the paper currency on
both. This latter policy is what the Tele
phone ltegister believes to be the best for
all the people of this country. It Is the
poiicy subscribed to by the people of the
west and south and what nearly the whole
democracy think is the tradition and obli
gation of the party. The only dispute is
not a matter of principle, but a matter of
ratio and facts and statistics tells us that
lfl to 1 is approximately correct. Mr. Cleve
land and Carlisle in defending the single
gold standard do not speak for the demo
cratic party. They are talking In the In
terests of Messrs. Rothschilds & Co., of
Lombard street, lxndon.
The Indian wards of the government are
more fortunate than many of their while
brethren In some respects, especially the
younger generation. There was considerable
comment made recently when quite a
crowd of Chemawa Indian boys came over
from the Indian school, near Kalern, says
the Independence West Side, and were ac
companied by about the same number of
girls; not on account of their being trusted
out together, but because quite a number of
the girls were so white, that, if met in dif-
