Whereas matters of vital importance
to the people of the State of Oregon
seem to require the convening of the
Legislative Assembly in special session.
Now therefore, I, Z. F. Moody, by
virtue of the authority in me vested as
Governor of the State of Oregon, do
hereby direct the convening of the two
Houses of the Legislative Assembly of
the State of Oregon in special session

nature is exposed in such a mannei
that we can take practical advan tage
its revealings, or, be satisfied witli
viewing what is presented by its up
heaval. There is a curious bit of coun"
try rounding Keyes hill, and under
and beyond Card well hill to the open
country about the Newton's and Bain's
properties. Through this section are
a number of knolls rounding or oblong;
their contour is smooth and graceful
and covered with a reddish clay loam
with a good stand of grass, giving at
once the impression that they were, so
formed or placed without much effort
or violence. It is true that hereabouts
as we pass over the public road hard
iron stone boulders are quite numerous
and might suggest the character of the
knolls, but till the cutting through
them by the railroad their true con
struction was unknown.
Selecting one knoll (near Lilly's) for
our purpose. There is at this point
exposed the manner of uplift, or the
cause of these rounded knolls in that
vicinity. They are of igneous con
struction, and, while they are thus,
there is side by side in the same uplift
two distinct characters of rock though
they must have been made from the
same material. One is Basalt and the
other a Porpbyritic Trackyte. The
first is sirongly columnar, the latter in
rounded masses; the basalt is hard,
tough and homogeneous; the trackyte
is fragmentary, of different material
cemented together, hard, yet friable,
and much of it crumbles in the hand.
The latter is the cause of the knolls,
that is, coming up from the deep in its
shaft the molten rock instead of finding
an easy outlet in the earth's crust, finds
an easier bed in the soft clays or shales
in a lower portion of the recent forma
tion thereabouts prevailing, thus eleva
ting the earth's surface the height of
its own imbedded thickness.
But the point of interest in this
matter and the reason for this uom.ua
nication centers in a portion of this
Trackyte rock as follows: It is made
up of pieces of shale and other material

just now, a Star reporter was inform

and indications are that, money is be
ing put into actual business, or spent
for the material improvement of the
country. This is shown by the charac
ter of the money in demand, by the
gradual extension of commercial and
manufacturing enterprises, by the in
creased value of real estate in nearly
every city in the country, and by the
highest valuation of contiguous farm
land. The same activity in real estate
noticeable here is apparent elsewhere
throughout the country, money, in
stead of being put into banks and
doubtful speculation, is being put into
business enterprises which contribute
to the general prosperity and give a
corresponding increase to the value of
property. Thus large sums of money
that have been hoarded are going into
real estate and building everywhere.
Members of congress report increased

They say crops are go:d, the farmers

business is an actual and not an appar
