Oregon Citv, Aug. 25. (To the
Editor.) Your recent paper brings in
formation that some of our well-to-do
farmers in the southwestern portion uf
the county would like to pay off the
county debt. The idea is commendable,
and it would perhaps be better for all
concerned if our debt could be funded
in some way where we couli Becure a
low rate of interest.
While the proposition of these gentle
men was doubtless made in good faith
and with the best of intentions, it cer
taiuly could not be done in tjtie way in
dicated. When county warrants are sell
ing at 3 per cent premium, we certainly
ought to be able to borrow money at, say,
4 per cent or less. If this could be done
it would save a snug little Bum in interest
every year. Why not go a little further,
though, and wine out this debt? "He
that goes a borrowing goes a sorrowing
is as true today ah when first uttered
and tbe people of Clackamas county were
never in a better condition to undertake
a task of thia kind than just at this time
Are these good people of Wilson ville
in earnest? Are they willing to have
their taxes doubled for one year, and to
bave the extra payment used to cancel
outstanding warrants? This would
mean business from the start. It may
not be generally understood, but never
theless true, that there are quite a nuni
ber of people in this county wbo make i
business of dealing in county warrants
and who do not care to see the county
out of debt. There is only one direct
way to get rid of an honest debt and that
ia pay it. Shall we pay it, is tbe ques
tion? Thia is a good time to discuss the
question and we would like to bear trom
tax payers generally.

BODY IS ,0T YF.T LTCOYKKEI).
Sothlii;; flu Yet Developed that
Would DlwlnHS Ihe Identity
of the Man.
Lant Sunday evening at 8 o'clock an
unknown man, to all appearance, a Jap
anese, jumped from the center of the
suspension bridge at this place and was
immediately drowned. Only a few peo
ple were on the bridge at the time,
among thera being Mr. and Mrs. Zinser
linger, D. B. P.aurn and Oscar Brown.
The man walked to a point about in the
center of the bridge, over a point where
the water in the river is the deepest, ii
there is any difference in the depth.
ilere he hesitated a moment, then sud
denly pulling off his coat and throwing it
overboard, he leaped to the railing on
the north side. He suspended himself
by the hands for a few Beconds, uttered
some unintelligible words, saying "good-
by," and let loose. The men who saw
the actions of the fellow rushed toward
him but they were too late. He d roc pod
about fifty feet and sank immediately
He soon came to th surface again, bow-
ever, and struggled for a few seconds,
shouting for aid.
Two small boat, were lowered from
the steamer lying at the dock, but before
help could reach the fellow he had gone
down and he did not rise to the surface
again. At thia point the water in the
river is about 100 feet deep, rendering it
quite impossible to get the body. The
man's coat and vest were taken to the
shore and turned over to Coroner Hoi
man. In one of the coat pockets was
found a stamped envelope with Japanese
writing on it. Tbe address on one side
of the envelope in good English waa
written ''Yokahama, Japan." There was
another small piece of paper on which
was written "Chicago Hotel, 306 Eaet
Washington street". There was also
lottery ticket found in a pocket of the
coat. Tbe clothing was apparently new
and of navy blue worsted goods.
No effort baa been made to recover the
body and no word received that would
lead to tbe possible identity of the man.
The probability is that the body will
never be recovered.
Whereas, it has pleased the Great
Muster to remove from our raldst our
Worthy Brother William R. Bagby,
therefore be it
Resolved, by Molalla Grange No. 40,
Patrons of Husbandry, that while we
deeply feel bis loes, we are constrained
to bow in humble Bubmiesion to the will
of Him who doetb all things well, there
fore be it
Resolved, that the Grange has lost a
member who, by hie genial way and
pleasant manner, won the friendship of
all in the community, a kind and oblig
ing friend and neighbor.
Resolved that we extend heartfelt
sympathy to the grief stricken family in
this their ad affliction.
Resolved, tht a copy of these resolu
tions be spread upon the minutes of the
Grange, one sent to the bereaved family
and one sent to tbe county paper for
Nellie M. Davis.
