Some folks get excited and say they

With a new president, a mixed cab

moralixed army the rehabilitation of
Mexico will necessarily be slow, but
there are plenty of statesmen who be
lieve themselves equal to the task.
Colonel E. Hofer. of the Salem Jour
nal, has taken the bit In bis teeth and
becomes excitable in his paper over
the fact that nothing has been done
toward the construction of new locks
at the Falls of the Willamette. "Pin
headed Oregon City polltlclana cried
graft and fought the biy at every
step, .but they went through." declare
the Colonel. Well, well This ia the
first time we ever heard there were
"ptnheaded pollUciana"' la Oregon City.
But maybe the Colonel knows. He
is pretty wise, financially. Still, his
questions are quite pertinent. We
think official Washington ia slow. It
has always been, and probably alwaya
will be. and if tne Colonel can atlr
things up. be should have a monument
at the headgates of the locks, over

45 Years Ago
From the Weekly Enterprise of No
vember 3. 1866:
Messrs. Thomas Rowley and John
G. Porter of this city have within the
past week, brought to this county two
lots of fine wool sheep to the number
of 200 each. The sheep are certainly
equal to any that, have ever been
brought into the county. The aame
gentleman have also purchased four
bucks of full blood, two of which took
first premium at the last State Fair,
and the other two took second premi
ums. Three of these were purchased
of Thomas L. Davidson, of Marlon
county,, and one of J. Mlnto, alsq of
Marion. For Oneness, beauty and
welcht of fleece these sheep cannot
be snrpaiised. We are pleased to see
our Clackamas county friends "branch
ing out'' In this line. The facilities
for sheep raising in this county are
unequalled In the State, and there
is room for a thousand head where we

Gibbons succeeded Captala John hi. Bowyer at Aanapdlls, who resigned on
account ef ill health, accord lag to the official announcement. It was ststed
that Captala Bowyer reaignatloa-had nothing to do with the recent slight te
a daughter of Prof tea or Beer of Yale. She waa a guest at a dance at An

ened to become the subject of a congressional Inquiry. By 'direction of the
secretary of the navy Captain Bowyer wrote an apology t Mlas Peer. Cap

Rowley and Porter design entering

ta. ted right Fine wool merinos,
such as they have, will average six
pounds to the fleece: while common
aheep rarely produce' more thaa three
to (our pounds. We have an evidence
of what result front keeping the b?t
sneep. in the production of Mr. T.
Nailer of Washington County. That
gentleman last week sent to the Fac
tory at thia city one French merino
Vfleeee that weighed 26 pounds, and
several of the fleeces from this flock
weighed twelve pounds, and the aver
age below that was from S 3-4 to 9
pounds each. Mr. Elliott, also of this
county has lately purchased two splen
did fine-wool bucks. We advise otners
to follow these examples.
