THE YEAR TO COME.
The year is brighter In promie than
any year for some time past. The crops of
the country have been abundant. The in
dustrial aud financial conditions have bet
ter prospects of a return to normal condi
tions, congress having started in to give
the legislation so badly needed to restore
pnblic confidence and credit, and stern ne
cessity will probably force President Cleve
land to sanction its acts. Our trade with
South and Central America promie9 to re
ceive a great impetus as a result of the en
forcement of the Monroe doctrine by the
Vnited States, and our trade with the
Asis'ic countries is increasing at a moat
The development of ike Nov.iwest has
been going steadily along, despite the hard
times, and now with a return of better times
aiera of prosperity will come to us that will
put Oregon in the front rank of states.
To Oregon Citv the outlook is all that the I
most sanguine could ask. The year '96 is
aure to be one of the best in the history of
our city, and the growth ol 'fl6 will be more
than doubled in the year to come.
The Florence West predicts a fusion ol
the democrats and populists in the coming
state election and says that already in l.ane
county an understanding has been arrived
at between lb leaders of th two parties for
a fusion on county officers.
After a recent study of our immigration
question in its relation to the increase of
population In this country, Sidney O. Fish
er, in the Popular Science Monthly, says
that, curiously enough, w hen the alien ele
ment had reached a certain point, about the
year 1S30 the native population began to
tall oil' in birth and the more the aliens in
creased in numbers the fewer became the
births of the native. The foreigners them
selves were not as nroliflc as the old native
stock had been. The consequence is that
we have today not as many people as we
would hare had if the immigrants had
never come near us and the native slock had
had continued their old rale ot increase.
Tn Oregon league of republican clubs,
known as the Young Men's State Republi
can Club, will hold its regular biennial
meeting the first Tuesday in February, and
put itself in shape for the comingcampaign.

vices wore held at the residence of his

ment took place at the Foster private

born in North Carolina on the 8th day of
September, 1S21, and came with his
father to Indiana in IS:.'. In 1S42, he
was married to Margaret Elmore, and

meetinc. am! the eipcntive mmniittee will , raids. In lfto. DO Was elected
to mi meet and issue an otficial call. This
will be the fourth meeting of the league
since its organization in ISrJ. The twenty
odd republican clubs in Clackamas county
should all be represented at this meeting,
and steps should be taken to have all the
clubs reorganized at once, so that they will
be in shape to elect delegates for the state
meeting. One of the principal factors in
gaining the big republican majorities in the
. Jait election in this county was the thorough
organization the republicans had in their
clubs. The populists are even now afield
organizing clubs, and the democrats are try
ing to infuse life into their organization, so
H behooves republicans to bestir themselves,
as a big victory in Oregon next June for
protection and national honor will bare a
strong bearing on the presidential election
to follow in November.

ing sea commission, and Daniel C. Oilman,
of Maryland, president of John Hopkins
university and the well known authority on
international law. Three of the commis

They are all men of high attainments and
integrity and their appointment gives satis
faction to all Americans, for they can be re
lied on to give an unbiased decision on the

during his celebrated raid in Missouri.
With his family he crossed the plains
by team in ISC7, and purchased a farm on
Eagle creek in this county, where he
has continually resideded since that
time. Ho was elected county commis
sioner in 1870, and when he went out of
office the county only had an indebted'
ness of 35 cents. The deceased died of
htrart failure and had been very ill for
a couple ot weeks. Mr. Bradley was
one of the solid, honorable citizens of
Clackamas county, highly esteemed by
his numerous acquaintances.

The populists held a mass mee'ing in
Portland Sunday, and about 43 of the
faithful went down from Clackamas
county, and at tbe love feast, according
to the Morning Oregonian, Editor Fitch,
of the Industrial Herald, among other
things gave utterance to tbe following:
"We are holding meetings amongst the
farmers of Clackamas, and the greatest
interest is being manifested. I feel cer
tain that if the democrats left, should
join in voting Willi the republicans, we
would still carry tbe county. Clacka
mas is all right." Tbe populist state
convention will bo held in Portland on
the first Thursday in April.

mentioning the dramatic presentation of
Damon and Pythias last week and the
editor oilers an apology.
Shively's opera house held a repre
sentative audience ol Oregon City's
theater goers on Friday evening of ,'ast
week and judging from tbe enl';,isiasm
in w hich the affair is sH.iker of, those
who attended were fji disapHiiuted,
either in the pis;, or the acting of our
amateur rvrtoriiiers ami had they chosen
to appear a second night, a parked house
would in all probability have greeted
them. The play has been running since
1M21 und needs no esecial mention as
altii"8t every one has either witnessed it
or read the history of the most unparal
leled exhibition of friendship ever known
to exist bet we n two men. With the ex
ception of Prof. Wui. Rasmus and his
wife, the cast was made up from the
Thespian Dramatic club who made their
first appearance and the tnmiliersof the
Woodmen of the World, under whose
auspices the play wus produced, ami
they nni-t be highly complimented on
their success. The costumes were ele
gant and appropriate. The instrumen
tal music furnished by Prof. F. K. Hep
burn was a pleasing feature, he proving
himself an expert pianist.
The leading characters were as follows:
Damon, Prof. Wm. Rasmus; Pvthias,
C. E. Bailev; Dionysius, Jos. Rice; Phil-
listitis, H S. Strange; Damocles, Dr. J.
W. Welch; Procles, Fred Hedges; Lu
cullus, Herman K. Jones; Calunthe,
Mrs. Wm. Rasmus; Hermiort, Mrs
Clark Ganong; Arria, Miss Sade Chase;
Damon's child, Miss Mamie Long; ex

ing guards and senators: 1st gnard, E.J.

the leading parts were difficult, they
were well learned and went off without
a break. It is to hoped that the Thes
pians may be heard from soon again,
their popularity now established be
speaking for them a more liberal patron
