The war to bnlld op Oregon
City is to rire Oregon City people jonr
Farmers' institutes have come to be one
of tbe great factor? in bringi ng about a bet
ter knowledge of agricultural work and of
tbe proper methods to employ in making a
farm yield the greatest possible returns. In
the agricultural districts of the East these
institutes are held from once to twice a
year, and tney are always largely attended
by men and women direct from the farms
who are anxious to acquire a better knowl
edge ot their occupation. Tbe ablest ta'ent
from the agricultural colleges and specialists
in the various lines ol farm work are called
on as instructors, while the farmers in at
tendance are called on for their experience
pertaining to the subjects under discussion.
Every phase of tbe fanner's work is
treated, there being lectures and papers read
on drainage, fertilizers, methods of cultiva
tion , all kinds or crops, stock-raising, bee
culture, in fact everything pertaining to the
farm is presented by a specialist so plainly
that none can rail to comprehend and profit
by the instructions given.
The management of the Ag.icultural
college at Corvallis hare announced that
they will hold an institute for Clackamas
county in this city at a date in February, to
be announced next week, to last for several
days. The greater number of the pro
fessors from the college will be present as
well as several of the leading horticulturists
dair men and other specialists from otr
the state. Tbe program will be arranged
with special reference to the needs and con
ditions of farm work in this county and will
b9 instructive and interesting to our
farmers. The hoard of trade ami citizens ol
Oregon City will render Mi'li assistance as
Will make this one of the most successful
institutes yet held in the state. Coming as
it does just before spring work begins there
will be nothing to prevent a big attendance
of onr farmers and their wives, sons and
daughters, for each will be benefited as
well as given a needed recreation.
The northeast poilion of Oregon City
presents a striking contrast to that of other
parts of the city in that there is scarcely
new house to be seen while new resi
dences are on every hand in all other sec
tions or the town. To a stranger this is a
enigma, for this part of the city has a
splendid location and many of the hand
somest lots in Oregon City are located here.
To a person w ho has occasion to use the
streets it is apparent why this part of the
city has come to a standstill. The streets
are in such an impassable condition that
they keep ibis part of Oregon City in a state
of blockade six months out of the year. In
fact Jackson and Eleventh and Twelvth
streets, the only ones open to through
travel are absolutely dangerous to drive
over. The sidewalks are in but little better
repair, it being impossible to properly lay
them on unimproved streets.
The result of these barriers to free
and easy communications is that property
in all tbls part of the city cannot be sold
within thirty per cent, of what similar
property will fetch in other parts of Oregon
Under the new charter allowing bonds to
be issued and givi ng the property owners ten
years in which to pay their assessments it
is possible for these streetB to be improved
and the property owners will ffnd It to
their advantage to bestier themselves be
fore another winter rolla around or empty
houses will be in tbe majority in tbis part
of the city.
Gkok'je ft AsHisoTos, the rather of our
country, left as a legacy the following bit of
advice: "Avoid Foreign Complications,
and in time of Peace Prepare for War."
While the Esteuphise has unlimited confi
dence In tbe patriotism and bravery of the
people ol the United States, and their abil
ity to worst any nation on earth in the
event of war, the condition of our navy
tares us in the face. It will be remem
bered at tbe close of the late civil war, our
navy was in a condition to compete with
any in the world. Uuring these many
years of peace the navy lias been neglected,
and the cold, hard fact is apparent
at present, that England has 310 war ves
sels to 81 by the United States. England
has her squadron in every sea to the north,
.south, east and wet of us, and in the event
of war with this country under present eon
diliens, a portion of our const cities would
be pra.'ln ally dcfcn-clc-s. Now Is an op
portune lime to hood well the advice of the
father of our country, and proceed nl once
to huiM more war ships, and within five
years time the I'nited Stales could success
fully Willi' any nation on the fa-e ol the
glohe. Kven as matters now are the Unite I
States could overrun Canada, and likely
worst Knglalid, but It would be far safer to
liae a well equipped tuivy.
Tint EsTKM'Kisr is in receipt of an
anonvmous correspondence from Cams in
which the author makes a bitter attack
upon a neightHr for having iutoxcaliug
liquors at a wedding and getting boys
drunk. The article was thrown In the
waste basket for the Kntkrkhisr does not
i under any circumstances publish anony
mous communications, or for that matter
any article that is of a personal nature
unless postive proof Is furnished. The
Kxtkki-kisk does not propose to become the
vicarious sacrifice for some person w ho is
too cowardly to sign hit name to his com
munication or who lacks the nerve to
make a complaint when he knows the law
has been violated.
Thk Venezuela commission has gone to
work, and may be expected to present a re
port in line with Lord Salisbury's suddenly
expressed conclusion that he has been in fa
Tor of arbitration all along. Thus is peace
assured on the Oritiocco, and Mr. Olney left
to Hy his foreign policy at Cuba.
SPIRIT OF TIIK PRES8.
The governor of Alaska reports, says the
Koseburg 1'laindealer, that more than a
hundred species of food fish swarm in the
waters or the territory, and that the value
of the salmon prepared for market now ex
ceeds $3,000,000 a year. With proper regu
lations the supply of none of these tish w ill
be seriously reduced and congress would be
well occupied in giving the matter attention.
Col. B. F, Alley, well known in this city,
intends to locate in Baker City, as the fol
lowing from the last issue of his paer, the
Florence West, would indicate: Some are
giving it as their opinion that if we do not
sell The West to parties here, we will re
main In Florence. It might as well be un
derstood now that It is a settled question
that we go to Baker City, and if this paper
is not disposed of to parties who will retain
it here, there is nothing more certain than
it will be moved to another town, and tbe
weeks will not be many before the plant
will be packed and shipped, if not now,
the people will be brought to a realization of
the value of the newspaper when they are
That the West, and notably Oregon, Is
making no special effort to secure a share
of the great immigration that is leaving the
eastern and middle states, is apparent to
even the people in the East. The following
is wbal the Inter Ocean, Chicago's great
daily, has to say of our apathy, and of the
alertness or the South in securing immi
grants and capital :
The West and Southwest have got to
wake up or be left in the lurch. The immi
gration societies in the South were never
so alert as now. They want immigrants.
We repeat, if the rich acres of the West are
to be tilled the people of the West will have
to do better work than they have been do
ing of late. Excepting California ai d I'tah
the slates of the West, as far as regards en
couraging immigration by the best meth
ods, have been taking a profound sleep.
Millions of acres in the Dakotas, in I'tuli,
Idaho, Washington, and Oirgou are vet un
broken, and will remain so unless those
states bestir themselves. A great immi
gration convention was recently held at Se
attle, Washington, and it resolved to ask tbe
state to appropriate tSDO from the state
fund, and to call on all commercial bodies
for generous contributions. If wisely ex
pended such money will d much good.
The people of the Middle West and the East
have very imperfect ideas ot the great West
and will eagerly read facts regarding it.
