It will be a severe shock to W. J.
Bryan to find that Lis newspaper cannot
live as a mere curkwity.
IIappt is the town that rvjoiifs in the
bounties of heaven and wants for noth
ing. Such is Oregon City.
Bets are freely being made that oar
own Dinger Hermann will land squarely
on bis feet when be falls out of the land
odice at Washington.
Tusbb is something beautiful about
the never-ending expectation of Tilla
mook county. The people oyer there
really believe they are to have a railroad
Thodi who are prone to believe that
the street railway between Oregon City
snl Portland is losing money, may be
gratified to learn that the passenger traf
fic alone is worth upwards of $100 a day.
Usui at the feel of Willamette falls,
with nature smiling from the mountain
tops, sits Oregon City. Blessed in a se
rene consciousness of contentment, the
happy town can well afford to let its en
vious rivals wrangle.
A xkbby war is in prospect between
the steamboats, the electric street rail
road and the steam railroad between
Oregon City and Portland. It will be a
three cornered fight, and the people may
reap a reward from the rivalry, by ob
taining cheaper transportation.
' Now that the president is coming to
visit this coast, let us stop all squabbling
and bickering and receive the chief mag
istrate in a befitting manner," Astoria
As only a small part of the population
of Oregon is either "squabbling" or
"bickering, it will not be a difficult mat
ter to reach a unanimous conclusion.
A stoby is told of a Chinook school
teacher who had a dread ot all kinds of
contagious diseases. She sent a child
home because her mother was sick. The
next morning the child presented her
self at school with her finger in her
mouth ard a hood swinging by the
strings, saying:("We've got a new baby
at our house, but mamma says I shall
tell you 'taint catching." Astoria Herald.
Tuebb Is talk that a large number of
immigrants is about to arrive in Corval
lis. Before their arrival it is suggested
that sidewalks leading to the two rail
road stations be improved. There are
holes in some of them that are a positive
menace to life and limb, Every immi
grant that falls in one of them and breaks
his neck will certainly locate elsewhere.
Tub deadly cigarette is being made the
subject of .legislation in several states.
Minnesota has Just passed a law, making
it a criminal offence to sell cigarette or
the paper in which they are wrapped;
The cigarette smoking habit has been
noticed by the larger railroad companies,
and they refuse to employ those who are
addicted to it, The United States army
will not admit confirmed cigarette smo
kers to its ranks. When cigarette smo
ers, like morphine fiends are relegated to
a class by themselves, the habit may be
come leas popular.
The editor of the Clatikanle Chief is
not a Christian in the true sense of the
word. Ho has spoken harshly of a de
linquent suWriber in Hie following well

Foa the first lime In his life G rover
Cleveland has Income a distinguished
personage. He is now the only living
ex-preiilent of the United States. As a
duck hunter he Is only up to the aver
age, and so far as fishing is concerned,
there is many a Siwash Indian that can
beat him. In the matter of raising ba
bies he has a good hatting average, but
nothing to astonish an Oregoa farmer.
He was always a fairly good drinking
man, but the gold cure Institutes tan
produce those who are his superiors at
this particular branch of political prefer

Cobvalus has lately leaped into prom
inence as an egg center. An egg war be
tween two local firms baa made a stir in
the market that has brought about phe
nomenal reunite. From every direction
eggs are arriving in an abundance that
discredits belief. From away down by
Albany, from iShedd station, Halsey and
other parts they stream, in undiminished
numbers. It is said that every hen for
mii a around hkS her eye on Corvallis.
On account of the war, evgs are higher
priced in Corvallis than in 1'ortlkuJ.
They are three or four cents higher than
in Albany. They are in fact a round IS
cents a dozen to the farmer who brings
them to town, though a Corvallis eg
eater can buy all be wants at any store
in town at 12'(' cents a dozen. Corvallis
Tuxt are having a wild time in Salem
over the introduction of the occupation
tax. Those who carry on the most ex
tensive business enterprises are tickled
to death, while men of small means are
staring bankruptcy in the face. While
the principle of an occupation tax works
well in some instances, it is undemo
cratic, and a relic of the past. To the
man who is thoroughly established in
business, the tax is not a burden, but
the poor man feels it tremendously while
be is struggling to make both ends meet.
That the levying of an occupation tax is
a hardship on the weaker lines of busi
ness, cannot be disputed. falem will
find before long that the law will have to
be repealed or there will be plenty of
empty stores, office and shops, in the
town. The injustice of the tax can easily
be comprehended, when it is shown that
sawmills pay but $15 a year while a poor
cobbler pays $23. Ealem had better be
come civilised. f

Tin employment of Japaoese laborers
by the railroads has occsa'oned no end of
anxiety among the labor unions as to
what the outcome would be. The tail
roads Save announced that they will dis
pense with Japanese and hire Italians.
Th8 settles the controversy without
solving the problem. The war against
the Japanese was waged with much bit
terness. The Japs worked for $r a day
and boarded themselves. At Everett,
Washington, the whole subject was thor
oughly dissected by the citizens, who
held mass meetings to protest against
the railroads giving employment to the
subject of the Mikado. It was then
shown that the Japs were a menace to
the progress of any community. Tbey
paid no taxes, tbey had no families, they
boarded with nobody, tbey bought no
food except that which came from Japan.
When tbey quarreled among themselves
the officers of the law bad to maintain
peace. When they became sick with
contagious diseases the health of the
community was endangered and the
hospitals were opened to them. Tbey
were a source of governmental car and
yet paid no money to defray the expen
ses of the government. It was this uey
happy condition that forced tb people
ot Everett to protest against their em
ployment, and not because of any intol
erance of spirit toward foreigners. Now
tb railroads avoid the unpleasantness
by hiring Italians. They have given an
order for 2,000 men of Italian birth to
work in Washington and Oregon. In
defense of themselves the railroads say
they cannot hire native American who
will work steadily. Tb labor unions
might find some pracitcal arguments in
tb claims of the railroad companies.

UOOD WOKIH FOR XITfllKLL.
"An Embassy Attache." in The Wash
ington Mirror of March 16, aays:
"A most attractive man has been
elected to the next senate, and one who
baa already served several terms here
Senator Mitchell, of Oregon. He is the
father of the little Countess (alasl no
longer little) Itochefoucald, whom you
know and love. How, indeed, can any
one know this charming person and not
love berT Surely no American girl, mar
ried in the European nobility, has half
ber beauty or good tact. Her father's
return to the senate will not, however,
tempt ber to come to America. She is
as much wedded to France as she is to
Rochefoucauld, and I doubt if she ever
returns to this country.
"Her father is an extremely handsome
man, even now, 'when he ha passed the
half century lfrnit by several years, and
baa always been counted as hsying much
magnetism. He Is a lawyer of repute,
and for msny yeais was the attorney for
one of the leading railroads of the coun
try, but in spite of the fact that he has
always had a handsome Incoaie he has
never laid aside a cent, and is one of the
poorest men in politics, which is more
honorable, to my mind, than it is comfortable."
BOYCOTT ON IIEKH.
An interesting contest is being waged
between the labor unions on one side
and the big breweries of Portland on the
other. It appears that the Portland
breweries have not been paying very
good wages. It is not difficult to be
lieve this when it is known that wages
in nearly every btanch of business are
lower in Portland than In any other city
of equal size in the United States . The
reason for this peculiar stale of affairs
has not been explained.
The boycott is a queer weapon.
When It la wielded by a combination
of rich and influential men, it is called
a "community of interest." When
labor anions make ose of it the name is
changed to "dealing with unfair con
cerns." Although the boycott ha
usually failed i the hands of united
labor, it ha always been successful
when applied to breweries, There is
practical reason for this. Those -who
drink beer are nearly always in com
pany. The reason why the boycott so
often fail is because laboring men do
not have the strength ot character to
stand together on any principle which
they aassert, unless one is watching the
other. Boycotts instituted against cer
tain brands ot tobacco have invariably
failed because those who agreed to stand
together never carried out their promi
ses to each other. While they ware in
company they were courage personified,
but once separated they Ix-como weak In
their resolutions, As the drinking of
beer is done In company, the boycott on
brewerloa has never been known to fall.
If Ulwrlng men would know their
strength, they must learn first of all to
