THE NATIONAL GUARD.
The closing of a period of six years exiit
muce as a military organization by Company
F, of this citv, brings to mind the fact that
the Oregon National Guard has become a
permanent part ot our state government
and will be a powerful factor in maintaining
peace within our own borders as well as
with foreign nations.
The national guard cannot be considered
in the sense of a great regular army, ready
to menace the liberties of the people or to
war with other nations on the least pro
vocation. On the contrary it is the great
bulwark of the liberties of the American
people as well as a safeguard from foreign
tory. There can only be one fourth of
July one day ot national ImlomMidence,
made sacred by the deeds ot our forefathers,
and perpetuated with patriotic feelings of
love of country by the cltlnons of this great
republic. It has been claimed that we do
not celebrate the Fourth of July with the
same feelingsof patriotism as did our grand
fathers; that the spirit of loyalty to the
country Is on the decline. While we proba
bly do not celebrate the day of national In
dependence with the atue boisterous
spirit of enthusiasm as did our fathers,
there la believed to be a deep and lasting
spirit of patriotism in the hearts of a large
majority of our countrymen, that would
fan Itself into a name of gigantic propor
tions should unseen dangers come to the
surface that would prove a menace to our
free Institutions and the foundations of this
government. The patriot of today is not
required to keep himself armed against the
probable Invasion of a foreign enemy, but
is permitted to pursue the peaceful avoca.
tions of life undisturbed. Yet, with all this
apparent stillness of the waters, there lie
beneath the surface influences that, unless
checked, may develope Into a whirlpool or
cyclone that would destroy the very founda
tions of our government. The socialist, the
anarchist, and the communist, are secretly
planning to destroy the very fabric that
unites the nation in one great people. These
treasonable elements must be held In sub
jection, and the anarchistic foreign element
that inhabit our large cities should be ever
denied the right of suffrage, if it is neces
sary to preserve our free institutions. But,
after all, there is a spirit of patriotism prev
alent and llrmly rooted in the hearts of a
vast number of American citizens that will,
it is hoped, serve as a safeguard to the na
tion. European nations are strengthening
their army and navy forces, and preparing
for any possible contingency that niav arise,
and as a further safeguard to the perpetuity I
of our country the United State owes it to
ber patriotic citizens to not lirger behind
other nations in this respect.
LOU AN I.OCA1.8,
Orange to Celebrate the Knurl h
Bulhlliigi Doing Up,
It is now almost an assured fact that Ore
gon City will have the State Christian Kn
deavor convention next May. Only a few
preliminaries yet remain to be arranged,
but the fact is virtually settled that the
convention will come he,v. Our citizens
should take an active part in thisconveetion
and take special pride in entertaining the
delegates who will come here from all parts
of the state. There is much to do in assist
ing the committees, who will be appointed
in due time, in making the proper ar
rangements for this great gathering. Ore
gon City is the ideal convention town ol
Oregon, and our citizens should not rest on
invasion. Representing as it does the their laurels in the matter of entertaining
better element of this great nation, and 'rge assemblages of people. One conven-
bound up in the interests of the country by
family, social and financial ties, it is the
safest kind of a military organization that
republic can maintain. It is a nucleus
round which an army could be formed In
case of a foreign war that would prevent
our country being run over and desolated
before we could arm ourselves. Realizing
the strength we have in our citizen soldiers,
foreign nations treat tbe United States witb
respect that tbey would not otherwise
accord us if we were tbe great overgrown t
ant, totally incapableofdefendingour rights,
tbat we would be without a military force
ready to use at a moment's notice.
The greatest need for the maintenance
of miliary force within our country conies
from the great mats of turbulent, anarchi
cal foreigners that have been allowed to
come to America within the last few
years. These barbarians, for such they are.
clothed only In an outer garb of civilization,
know no reason but that of force, and liberty
they Interpret to mean license. To hold
tbem in check requires the strong arm of
the law backed by repeating ritles and gat
ling guns. Until this evil can be checked
and abated our national guard will have to
be maintained even more strongly than at
present. Americans who prize their liberty
and their peace will be strong supporters of
and true friends to the national guard of
the United States.
Tbe interest taken in the forth coming
assembly of the Willamette Valley Chau
tauqua Association is growing at a more
rapid rate than its most sanguine friends
anticipated. The press with few exceptions
all over the state, bave been very liberal
in their notices of the assembly. Feople
interested in educational and literary work
from every part of Oregon have been mak
ing inquiries as to the program that is to be
carried out on tbe assembly grounds. As
surances have been received that in the vast
crowds tli at will gether in Gladstone park
there will be representatives from every
county and all sections of Oregon.
The array of talent will be the greatest
ever gathered together in Oregon and will
be such as would be a credit to an old as
sembly of the Eastern states.
The financial affairs of the association is
now on a solid basis, and with plenty of
capital to work with, the officers will not be
handicapped In carrying out the work of the
At no place in Oregon is there a pleas
nter or more healthful place for camping
than at Gladstone park. The shade is per
fect and there is no underbrush or weeds to
bother, and no poisonous vines are found on
the grounds. Pure water from the Clack
amas river, a cold mountain stream, is
piped over the grounds for the free use of
all. Fuel can be easily obtained. Supplies
can be had on the grounds from the stands
or from the stores of Oregon City and Port
land at very reasonable rates and the ex
pense of living upon the grounds should
not exceed that at home.
For those who do notcareto camp, ample
accommodations can be bad In the hotels
and private bouses of Oregon City as well as
at Portland. An electric car and railroad
service gives transportation to the two
cities every few minutes during all hours of
the day and until late at night.
Before another Issue of the Enterprise
ahall have reached its readers, the pomp,
glory and outbursts of patriotism Incident
'to the celebration of tbe only and glorious
.Fourth of July will bave passed Into bis-
tion brings another, and the guthering of
the Y. P. S. C. K. of the state will benefit
Oregon City morally and socially and its
good effects will be noticeable for months
afterwards. These conventions bring the
very best class of people to our city and
aside from the other benefits to be derived,
they redound directly and indirectly to our
A foot walk is one of the urgent needs of
the suspension bridge. Hundreds of peo
plemen, women and children daily cross
this bridge to the mills, factories, residences
and electric line depot on that side of
the river, who bave to walk in the dusty
roadway and are in imminent danger from
runaway teams.. Only a short time since
some ladies and children had a narrow es
cape from serious injury by a runaway
team which were making their way at full
speed across the bridge. A footwalk could
be easily constructed on one side of the
bridge that wonld answer all practical pur
poses, and footmen would be out of the
way of the many teams and vehicles that
are constantly passing over the bridge. In
the winter months the mud accumulates on
the floor of the bridge, sometimes shoetop
deep, causing pedestrians to wade and use
bad words. All this could be obviated by
the constructian of a foot bridge.

ItEAL ESTATE TK.VNSl EltS.
The bicyclists of Oregon City deserve
credit for their move in organizing a club
to lurther the interest ofthis healthful sport.
Every bike rider In and around the city,
who have not already done so, have signi
fied their intention of becoming members.
They should strive earnestly for the success
of a grand bicycle tournament at Gladstone
park while the Ceautauqua assembly is in
session. Here can he made one of tbe most
scenic bicycle tracks in the state, surround
ing the base ball ground, and where ten
thousand people can sit on the shady hill
side and watch the races.
SPIRIT OF THE PKESS.
Speaking of the West Side electric lines
the Oswego Iron Worker has the following:
With the expenditure of a comparatively
nominal sum the Consolidated Railway com
pany of Portland would realize handsomely,
and the Oregon Ifon it Steel Company
would also come in for a very big profit.
The Second street railway line extension
from South Portland does not at present,
we imagine, pay running expenses, for the
simple reason that its territory is too lim
ited. If the road was built further south
ward a little over two miles, to Oswego, the
cars, instead of, as now, being almost empty
on regular trips, would be filled with pas
sengers. With half-hour service the rail
way company, the Oregon Iron & Steel
company unu uswego wouiu an rje greatly
benefited. Such a move would oe tncf im
mediately by the Portland General Electric
Company constructing a motor line from
Oregon City to Oswego. All this would
mean the beautiful hills between Oswego
and Portland, occupied by costly residence
buildings. As stated, a nominal sum would
accomplish this. The companies mentioned
would not miss the money spent In the un
dertaking, and would soon get it back.
Why is it not done I
For physical ailments, especially those
incident to declining years, there is no
remedy that produces such satisfactory
results as Dr. J. II. McLean's Liver and
