LOWER FARE PROPOSITION.
There was much interest manifested
In tbe lower fare proposition aa put
up to the O. W. P: in this city Wed
nesday. Tbe rate case was argued
' before tbe Oregon railway, commis
sioners, both for and against, and a
number of witnesses were examined
as to what the rate is between here
and Portland and on other tines in
'this section of the State.-
Tbe Interest in tbe case shows tbat
tbe people of tbls city want a lower
rate to Portland If they can get It
Not tbat people wish to see the -company
earning people at a loss, for
few wish sucb a ching; but it is evi
dent . that tbe people won't believe
tbat sucb ia tbe case unless tbe com
pany can show convincing evidence to
" Few peopje want eTen a corpora
tion to operate at a loss; on the other
band tbe people want all they can get
these days and believe in going after
It And If it is possible to give a bet
ter rate to Portland tbe company can
do no more popular thing tban to
Perhapa if a census of person who
are s.r;bbliuf were taken it would be
found that half the clu'at-d peflpkHof
tbe United State are trying to write
for tbe other half,- If the careers of
author of thtion are looked luh It
will be found that tuoee who have
achieved any emlurlm; mn-i-v-w nearly
all gained It under similar circum
stance. They began young, usually
in tbe employ of some magazine or
newspaper. Many of tbetu became
readers of wanusi'rlpta submitted fori

Melville Ostrander at twenty-five,
having been graduated at college and

: There are perweus, eapei-Uilir liter
ary persona, who claim tbat the high
est grade of fiction is that, in which
there are no Incidents. The characters
are expected tor talk their way Into the
Interest of the readers. Ostrander first
fell under the Influence of this school.
He wrote novels in admirable Eng
lish. In which bis characters told their
own story if they bad any to tell,
which they bad not-r-lndirectly In con
versations and by giving their own
thoughts. Ills novel were always re
turned by the publishers as unavail
able, except In one instance In which
tbe work appeared with a sale of only
a thousand copies not enough to pay
tbe cost of publication.
Ostrander, hearing tbat while tbe ret
rospective novel was the highest form
of, literature so considered by critics
if. be wished to succeed, pecuniarily
be must enter upon more lively
school. Henceforth be made bis char

and water for one another. After

much on the time that has been given

to find good, and sufficient reasons why
he should marry her. Mr. Ostrander

do distinctive work and also find time- for the other "grind" of elab-'
