Petition! Circulated in Corvallis Some
; thing Abont thePlAn.
"' . :' i
Petitions are in circulation in
Corvallis, asking-, congress to in
aogurat 1 a one cent letter postage,
ana protestirg against a propoitd
bill for the establishment of a par
cels poet service. . It. iis said, that
evejsy person, to whom the petitions
have been presented bag' unhesi
tatingly signed.. ,.. r ..
The penny letter postage plan
has been sgitated for several year!".
Io i s favor is the report "of the
p .stmastfcr general in . 1890 show
ing that while tbe aotuil co t of
handling the letter business of ibe
country was only $8,000,000, the
revenue, derived by the govern
ment therefrom, was . $38,000,000,
yielding a prom ot 3o,ooo.oo3 or
375 per cent, Based on this re
pot ti the estimate is thut on a one
cent rate for letters, the govern
ment could still handle the busi
ness atan . enormous profit. The
present excess of the profit on the
two cent postage on letters is ex
pended in. carrying tbe illegitma'e
business in second clas3 matter,
embodying the advertising. , matter
sent out by various coaceroe, brgus
and otherwise, all over the coun
try. Another most favorable con
sideration is, that every pereon in
tbe entire country would be a beneficiary.-
Two celt poslage , Jiot
only in many- a case with piivate
individuals, but with ell business
cooceros, is an important itf ro, in
the year's expenditure, With the
expense cut in twain, a benefit
would accrue in which ail tbe peo
ple in the country would be befle
TAXING ALL FOR A FEW.
The Parcels Post pLtn, to which
the petitions protest, is a scheme by
which it is proposed io still main
tain the two cent pott gs on letters
and spend the excess in the trans
position of merchandise by mail
at greatly, reduced rates. For in
stance, it is propoeed to carry it
pounds of merchandise to any part
of the country for 25 cents. The
charge for the service would be but
a very small per cent of tbe eost.
and the loss entailed, which would
be enormous, is to come out of the
profit on the two cent - postips ar
rangement, it is in short, the. de
sire to transform the mails from
thelegitimatechannel into a sort of
commercial express business, tew
ing tribute on all tbe people to keep
it up. The real beneficiaries, will
be, not all the people, but the iaige
depaitooent etores of ' the country,
compa'a'ively few in number.
These people hope by the scheme
to have the government bear the
chief portion of the expense in trans
porting their packages, the gov
ernment in turn maintaining, the
two cent postage ' plan," in ' which
all people shall be taxed to raise
meaos for the added expense- la
brief, it is the purpose of these big
establishments if possible, ' to use
the government as a means of tax
ing everybody, creating a sort . of
paternalism that meaus millions of
dollars lor a favored lew at tae ex-
pene of the many. .-t ,
HE BIT ONCE BUT NOT TWICEi
IN WINTER TIME.
Building in Corvallis The Number tf
Winter-Built Structures ns Unnsnal.
A fact that has perhaps escaped
general attention is that building
operations have been in progress in
Corvallis all winter. When com
pleted the cement building on Main
street will be a product of the .win
ter season Operations on it began
late in the autumn, at ajtime when
building has-entirely ceased. The
structure is now under a - roof" and
the exterior of the waits finished .
The tipper. portion of the front is in
and it presents, a pleasing effect
The, floors are now being laid, and
the promise- made some time ago
that , the place would be ready for
occupancy by' March ist is certain
to be. redeemed.
Another building that was not
commenced until afterthe osteal pe
riod tor such , work as the Charles
Heckert house in Job's addition,
now fully enclosed, and-with a force
of men at work on the inside. The
Chiptnan house on Fourth street is
still another example: of winter con
struction, and t he same is "practical
ly true of the Hersig bouse. With
& rainfall of .but threeaoches in De
cember -and an almost rainless Jan
uary, the present season- has been
very favorable for-winter work of.

E. T. Lucas, Wingo, Ky., writes. April
25th, 1902: "For 10 to 12 years I had
been afflicted with a malady known as
the itch.' The itching was most unbear
able: I had tried tor years to nnd relief,
having tried all remedies I could hear of,
besides a number of doctors. I wish to
state that one single application ot Bal
lard's Snow Liniment cured me com-
nletelv and oermaneutly. Since then
I have used the liuiment on two separate
occasions for ringworm and it cured com
pletely. 25c, 50c and f 1.00. Sold by

It is no part of the business of
government to fielp ; nut, - tkese big
concerns in their private business.
The terpetuat on of thesmall retail
traders is essential to general wel-
fa-e. Id meaos livelihood for more
people, which in torn' means more
consumers of farm-grown products.
It means the occupation of more
building?, and more employment
for builders. Such establishments
as Montgomeiy Ward & Company
and S-arf-Rotbii k of Chicago, are
a D3:i ivj dttrirreat to the entue
country, and those who deal with!
them err in judgment, . The char
acter of these houses is illustrated
by tbe fact that they do not attempt
to do a retail business in Chicago,
but depend on orders from a dis
tance for the immense profits they
yearly pile up. With them . it is
always the case 01 buying a pig in
a poke, and hence there . is always
nrofit.. The pie may Iook line
other Dies, and - squeal like other
Dies, but is diiierent. A .Benton
county man bought a complete
suit of clothes, hat, shoes, and all
from one of them for $10: but he
never wore the outfit. Neither did
he ever buv another from them
He buvs reerularlv and entirely of
the home dealer now, and always
eets his money's worth. The sure
way always is to buy ot a ueaier
who is within reach and from whom
satisfaction can be obtained in case
tbe article is not up to a proper
standard. These reasons illustrate
why a parcel's post scheme for the
benefit of the bie department hou
ses and to be maintained at the ex
pense of all the people, is undersir
able. A penny postage is a plan
whose establishment would please
and benefit all people.
The return of . the registrar- general
of births, marriages and; deaths fo,-
the year 1900, the first compfette year
since the war broke out, shows a de
cline in marriages and births- and an
increase in deaths, says the St. Louis
Globe-Democrat. The marriage rate
was 16 per 1.000, compared with 10.4
'in 1898-99. The births in 1900 num
bered 927,062, or a rate of 28.7 per
1,000, the- lowest record, and? 1.3 per j
cent, below the mean rate- for thc-
last ten years. The illegitimate birth
rate was 1.1 per 1,000, which is the-
lowest record. The deaths numbered'
v 587,830, or 18.S per 1,000, as-against
17, 17.4 and 17.8 m the prevfpus three
years. Of the deaths, 3,683 were im
mediately due to alcoholism or de
lirium tremens. The death rate from
alcoholism was 133 males and 95" fa
males per 1,000,000: Both these rate
svere the highest on record: The
deaths . from- tubercular riseases
were 10.14 percentum of the death
from all causes, aggregating 61,302.
The strength of the army at bam
rnd abroad was 383,037. The death
were 10,554, giving a- rate of 27.6 per
1.000, as compared with 10.12 and 10.5
in the preceding three' - years. The
mortality in the army abroad was
.'36.1 per cent, per 1,00,.' as compared
with an average of 14.5 in th preceding-five
