YisUrday afternoon a party of prom
llieiit eltlzeus and bu.lm-s men vl.it
t1 Muriau's park to look over tho
grounds with a view to getting a suit
able place for holding cousty fain., a
this subject I being freely discusaed
al iireaenl. The party wa composed
of Mayor M. II. Friendly, President F.
M. Wllklns of the board of trade, H.
M. Yoran, K. II. 1 1 aye., W. 11. lloir
man, K. ltaug, J. V. Kay, It- Mc
Murplmy, Jn. W. Stewart, F. A. Half
kin and H. Merlau, the owner ef the
f.ark. AOuaru reporter accoinpan
hI tlm rty down.
The party without exception
expreaseil themiwives a mom
t ban pleamxl Willi tlis ground. Jir.
Merlau has done an Immense amouut
of work on the park and a more suita-
lile place one coui.i nvi expect to nni
fur the meetings of such an organiza
tion. The grove have been trimmed
out and make a meat beautiful place.
The soil Is of the kind ecallarly
adapted to making a grew! race course.
I here Is a combination 01 three race
liacks lu the uatk: a one-mile kite
shaped truck: a on mile circular track
and a oce and one-eighth mile circular
track. Tk tracks have aln-ady been
nut In good couditieu for driving pur
pose aud bet Utile more work will be
ueueanllated to make at least one flrnt
claw track. In additlou to thl. a Mmon
can drive over eight mile nu Hue
driveway through the park without
going over the same road twice or
dilviug ever the Hack.
To a rw.ii w ho haa never vl.ltc.1
thl beautiful place It will he time
well spent to make It a visit. The lake
now cover about thirteen acre ot
land and braide being an excellent
place for boating, a ye repoitercail
attest, I well slocked with carp. A
fine driveway will saou be built clear
around the lake.
There can I but one objection
brought agalu.t this site for the fair
and that la the distance from town.
With the pn.MMt-d turnpike nad thi
would be entirely overcome. Howev
er some think the Idea a feasible one to
have the pavilion for tlm agricultural
exhibits aud such Items lu town and
have the stock clhll.lt, race rourw,
etc., In the utrk. In this way the
cn.wd would be held III town during
the forenoon, at the park In the after
u.m.ii, aud al Ix.tli places ef evenings.
Thorough aud Mrtuancnt organiza
tion I now iiccemary In the nmtttr
and for tho beat Intrrenta of the county
at large- lei no pain be siared until
the aaaoclatioii ha lieo.me a reality.

There is a great gambling game
going on with gold, and the World
seems to have its eyes on tl e game.
The World has asked tho hanks
why they are hoarding S1,000,000
in gold for which titer have no uho
whatever. Their replies are eva
sive, shifty, insincere. They have
r.o obligations payable in gold.
Their notes aro redeemable not by
Uie.im'lvrH but by thu government,
and not in gold but in green
backs. The checks drawn by their
depositors are payable in psjHjr
alone, and in fact are paid in noth

son for them to hoard gold except
that they rxect a premium on it

THE I'AM'ADK RESERVE.
A bill has been introduced in the
house by Thompson of Multno
mah, to accrue to Oregon, for tho
benefit of the common school fund,
some 1MO,000 acres of school land,
being sections 1G and 35, embraced
within the Cascado timber reserve,
and the appointment of an agent to
select lieu lands therefor, and to
inmate, tho price of such selections
to tie sum nf 15 per acre, and to
increase the price of all state lands
to 12.50 per acre. The Cas
cade reserve was set off simply to
allow the school land board to se
lect lieu lands to speculate on them
and this bill is tho culmination of

of a law calculated to purify the
ballot. After a long debate Daw

apply to Linn county. As this
would make the bill unconstitu

bill effectually. The objectionable

The Dalles Chronicle says: A
dispatch from Scranton, I'enn., yes
terday announces the deatli of
Judge Handley of that city. He
was the brother of Mjor Handley
lute of this city, and was very
wealthy. Several years ago he
made a will, leaving all his pnK-r-ty
to Kddio Handley, his nephew,
but the latter dying soon after, tin
will was, of course, no effect. He
leaves no relatives unless in the
sixth or seventh degree, and it is
quite probable that tho dividing of
his estate, valued at 18,000,000 will
cause considerable litigation.

Statesman: "The homestead ex

ato is modeled after the Illinois
law on the same subject and al
lows a homestead exemption from
execution to the amount of $1,000
together with minor exemptions,
and the exemption is valid until

shall havo attaint J majority. The
law is a good ono a much needed
measure and should speedily bo
come a law, as the present home

be void by reason of a clerical er
ror of the 1893 session which en
acted it. I$y reason of this error

houses in 1893 does not appear in

The Moores horticultural bill
which passed the house creates a
board of six members, ono from the

and Tillamook. 2d Marion,
Polk, Benton, Lincoln, Linn and

Umatilla, Union, Wallowa, Dak

To hold office for four years.
They shall have a secretarr at not
more than $1200 a year". The
board is clothed with Uie necessary
powers of regalating, inspecting
quarantining, disinfecting, etc.,
necessary to protect the fruit
against the introduction and
spreading of diseases and pests
among fruit trees. The members
are to be appointed by aboard con
sisting of the governor, secretary
and treasurer of the state. They
have power to appoint auanntine
guardians in each district when
necessary and to pay them $2 rfr
day. For the support o! the board
and prosecut:ou of its work the
coming two years, $9,000 is appro
priated. It is considered by tn'st
fruit men a very pool measure. It
