Times: As will be seen by the ordi
nance published iu this IsMte the city

mid associates a 30 year franchise to
erect and maintain an electric light
plant.. e understand thatansgrte
uient was entered Into that the plant
should be erected and in operation
witiiin a period of two years, but the
fronchist and tilso the minutes of the
meeting fail to reveal this fact. We
presume there is no objection what
ever to granting a franchise for an en
terprise so commendable, but some
time should have been specified when
this plant should be erected, and fil
ing, the. franchise to Income null and
vi id. However, Mr Clow Is no trlflor
and If ho fails to erect tlio plant with
in a reasonable length of time, he will
not stand in the way of any other firm
or individual from doing so during the
entire life of his franchise.

Salem Statesmau: The launching
yesterday of the O C 4 E Co's steamer
"Albany" at Steffsn'e yards Portland,
was attended by a large crowd of 'o.
pi- euKsr to see the new craft make
liertleiiut among the already numer
ous craft on the Willamette division.
Site Is 150 feet iu length, U'i feet beam,
with dentil or hold 4 leel aud 0 Inches,
aud built as near for speed as a light
draucht hull could be constructed.
The heuse and machinery are from the
steamer "N S Beullcy," which w
built in 1880 by the O P R R Co. ma
ing her tlrst trial trip on December
laiholttiut year. Two weeks later
she sank at Albany with 3,8(H) bushels
of wheat on board. In 1SH7 she sauk
ta-low Suleui, damaging a large cargo.
She had the reputatiou among river
men of having a "Jonah" placed en
her, as no matter under whose coin
maud she was placed, she never real
ized to her owner the enormous prof
lis gained by her companions, the
"Win M Hoag" and "Three Sisters."
It Is to be hoped that with a new
start lu life, a new name taken from
one of the prosperous towns on her
route and managed by a reorganized
company of determined businessmen,
lis will prove a success.
This is tbe secoud boat christeusd
the "Albsuy" that bus navigated the
Willamette, the tint being built lu
lStiH at . Catiemali by the People's
Transportation Company, composed
principally of Salem luislnesi nien
her dimensions being somewhat less
than the "Albany" of today. J D
Miller and George A Pease were her
tlrst captains. Mhe operated on the
Willamette until. January, 1875. At
that time she sauk on the upper river
at the mouth of the famous Long Tom
river wlille In command of Captain
Aaron Yickers, who met his death at
Oregou City February 13th of the
same year from tbe effects of exposure.
At the lime she was wrecked a portiou
of the old boat drifted down to
Ituena Vista, where it remained ouan
Island for several years. In the
spring of 1871 she made eighteen con
secutive trips between Oregon City
and Eugene, clearing from $800 to
11,000 a trip. At that time all freight
rates on the river were high and
steaiuboatlug was a very profitable
While the chances for the new boat
to coin money are not as favorable as
lu tiie days of her uamrsake, she can
be made a valuable feeder to the rail
road to which she belongs.

service held in the U B church, con
ducted eullrely by Rev li Leppert and
wire, was attended by a large audience
with manifest luterest. and many went
away from the service determined to
Join their heart and Inlluence to rid
our city, as well as our land, from the
nefarious traruo. iisv Tieppert has no
oompreiulse to make with th whisky
iranio, uor any or the alua r vices or
society todsy, whether popular or
ot tier wise. The Interest manifested In
those services both by th Christian
people and the publio were nevermore
Intense than now;aud they bid fair to
result In lasting good, as many already
have confessed Christ and committed
their lives to his service. These meet
ings will continue Isdeflnltely.

Albany, Or., Jan. 0. Aotlon ha
been taken by Lloyd Montgomery'
attorney, which will, no doubt, pre
vent his execution th 81st lust. Th
time had expired In which a bill of
exceptions could be filed, but Prose
cuting Attorney McCain today signed
stipulations extending the time until
January 20 for perfecting an appeal.
The case will then be appealed to th
supreme court aad Montgomery' at
torney's expect a stay of execution un
til the appeal lor a new trial can be
heard. Th main point upon wbicti
th defense will rely la th appeal will
be the claim that the court errtl In
admitting lo -Tdenoe Montgomery's
confession befor the grand Jury,
No credence I placed In the conflict

statement that he ouly killed McKer

Sal sin Journal: A writer In th
Willamette Collegian suggests that
Oregon Is but little represented lo th
literature of our country aud "can
polutout no one who lias gained a
national reputation elthor lu prose or
poetry." At most Oregon cau claim
Samuel L Simpson as the author f
"The Beautiful Willamette," a classic
of the school readers and found In
many collections of verse. It Is more
than likely Oregon can claim to be the
home of Bret Hart and Joaqulu Mil
ler quite as well as California,
The offering of a $500 prize to ailrau
late some one to produce a meritorious
literary work, as Is suggested, would
not hasten the ripening of any literary
fruit on the tree of letters. The study
Vf English literature as such will alone
produce men and women or literary
twites and ability. ' At present the
subject Is little more than trifled with
in our schools and colleges, T he sub
