Reports of Our County School
We have published Superintend
ent Gault's reports on public schools
in this county to which vte invite the
attention of our readers.
We agree with Mr. Gault that the
salary of our county school Supeii
tendent should be targe enough
enable hira to devote his entire time
to visiting and perfecting our schools
We will have to do this in time as
most of our sister States have done
and the sooner tho better for all
But we are not disposed to coin
cide with the Superintendent that a
compulsory system of education
would be impolitic in this State . It
is both impolitic and radically wrong
for any people to allow a class in its
midst to grow up in utter ignorance
of books, which is tho certain result
of our present voluntary system of
But thero are good arguments on
both sides of this question, and we
would bo happy to publish Mr.
Gault's reasons for the faith that is
in him. We intend to discuss the
matter at length when we get time,
aud will also publish valuable arti
cles on the question from other

In a previous number we expatia
ted on the subject of hog raising as a
useful art, and we hope that our
friends will not infer from what we
sakl that we have' 'gone back"on our
old antipathy to hog3. We claim
that we were consistent. We only
advocated the raising of a heller breed
of hog3 thereby to mitigate the evil.
Want it understood that we have n '
compromise with hogs a hogs nor
the devil. We believe, as an inci
dental remark, that the devils that
entered the swine in Palestine have
never left them. We were pointed
in childhood to tho holes under hogs
jaws as the place where the Old Fel
low had gone in, and we believe it
We are led to make these miscella
neous remarks on account of an old
sow that has rooted up our door
yard, smashed our fences, broken
down our gate and be-deviled us
generally for i fortnight. It is &
good thing we have no shotgun or it
might get busied.
ftoivcll & Chesman.
Rowell & Chesman have estab
lished an offce at St. Louis where
they will solicit advertising for pub
lishers moc especially in the North
west. Mr. Rowell, the well known
partner of the firm of Geo. P. Row
ell & Co., of New York, is known to
publishers and advertisers all over
tho Union, but to editors more es
pecially as the editor and publisher
of the American News taper Reporter.
He is a man trusted by all. Mr.
Chesman was formerly editor of the
Reporter. St. Liouis is pavtiularly
blessed by the advent of this new
advertising agency in her midst and
publishers will hail the event as a
new era in newspaper prosperity.
T..E "organs" are busy just now
predicting that if the Democracy

"The Religious War "
The Halletin in a column and a
half article prophesies a religious
war in Europe which he thinks will
arise out of the conflict of opinion
about the dogma of Papal infallibil
ity. In our humble opinion there is
not the least danger of a religious
war on this account. The age for
religious wars has passed. It is su
perstition that makes such wars and
the chains of superstition have been
so weakened and broken that they
have lost their power. Austria re
vokes her covenant with Rome, Ger
many laughs in in the face or the
Pope aud all tnat the impotent Pio
Nono can do is to issua his encyclic
al letters, count his beads and mum
ble hi3 paternosters. And thero
is about as much danger of a relig
ious war in Protestant England as
there is of the English people re
turning to the barbarism and cruel
ties of the Plantagenets and Tudors
when women were publicly whip
ped in the streets of London and
men and women were burned at the
stake for opinion's sake.
To Working Men.
The Independent is owned by a la
loring man and is the working man's
friend, opiosed tit laziness, drunken
ness, outlawry, vested and corporate
rights when oppressive, and opjtosed to
whatever tries to usurp the right's of
the people. Subscribe for it.
Will Somebody Explain.
There is one thing that wo would
like to have explained: Why is it
that a certain class of men de
nounce the Grangers for buying in
the cheapest market and engaging
in certain lines of business when
they choose, and who at the same
time tliiuk that it is all right for
merchants and manufactue s to do
the same thiDg ? One at a time now.
We were shown a letter this week
written by Mr. Wm. Wat3on of
Recdville to the State Board of Im
migration of thipStatc which is to be
sent to Australia for publication. As
an essay on the resources of ouiState
and JW. T. we have not heard it
surpassed. He represents Eastern
Oregon and Washington as a grc.
stock growing country in a -plai.i
and truthful manner. Mr W.'s si o
ofwiiting is very interesting. We
hope for the good of this coast that
all persons when writing about it
will show the same regard for truth
as in the case of Mr. Watson.
Rev. Geo. Ciandle, we are glad
to learn, can now walk a little and
is regaining tho use of his limbs. It
is to be devoutly hoped that he will
regain his wonted health. We can
not wi 11 afford to lose such useful
m?n as Mr Chandler. His many
friends in this State who respect his
virtues, admire his talents and love
him for the great sacrifices he has
made here in early days for the good
of man and the glory of God will be
glad to learn of his convalescence.
The Astoria says that the vessels
at Portland now take their cargoes
mostly from steamboats instead 1 1
loading from the warf, and that it
will not be Ion? until our wheat will
be all floated down the river in barg
es to the vessels waiting at Astoria.
The Republicans have carried the
municipal elections in Salem and Al
Si nd in your names, and if you are
unable to pay in advance tee will send
you the Independent and wait on you
a year. To clnbs of five we will send
the Independent for one year for $10
and for clubs of ten or more we will
sevd the Independent one year for
$20 00 with an extra number to the

K. W. Y. Z. DISCOURSETH VARIOUS
LY. Our part of the world has during
the "ast ten days been visited with a,
Matrimonial Tidal Wave.
It began out north of us on the 29th
ult. Bent WHson was the happy man
and Mattie Crow the favored lady.
The boys thought they would
Him, so arming themselves after the
manner of those engaged in that bus
iness they rallied aud went forth.
Uent said the best he could do for
them was to give some apples. The
boys thought app!es were rather cold
to charivari on so they tried him the
next night. This time they were no
more successful than before.
In the meantime the tidal wave
was traveling south and by Thurs
day afternoon it had got across Dai
ry Creek. This time iill Enis did
and Mies Amanda Fouts
was the well pleased recipient. This
took place about 2 o'clock p. m. The
same day the wave crossed the prai
rie north of the Grove and Don Davis
a young man of about 30, became a
husband and father all in a few min
utes and there was one loss widow
in the land. But the wave although
apparently stayed did not stop but
Monday it managed to gel to the
Grove. Miss Emma Blank had to
succumb under its powerful shock;
and Mr. Allen of Benton county no
more mourns as a widower. When
will it stop! K. W. Y. Z. is alarmed.
(We fear it will catch K. W. Y. Z.
next. Ed.) '' 1
K. W. Y. Z. has to travel the
roads much lately and his soul is
much vexed at their condition and a
thought has come into his head. He
will give it to the charitable publi.
asking them not to ridicule it too so-
tuis jjreumci expeci, 10 remain iieic
the rest of their lives and expect that
their childi en will do the same. If
this is so, is it not time we were
making some permanent roads?What
is. the sense in this patch, patch,
patching roads eternally and never
getting them good or making them
permanent? In Forest Grove Road
District there are about four miles of
road, and over 300 dajs' work to put
on them. About a half mile above
McLeod & Georges mill is a gravel
bed. Let one-half the labor of this
District be put to hauling gravel. Al
lowing that two hands and a team
can haul two cubic yards of gravel
p r day, 150 dy's work would deliver
100 cu. yds on the ground which
would be sufficient to cover 1)00 feet
of road 9 feet wide and eight inches
deep. By persisting in this ye-r af
ter year, in about twenty years every
part of our district would have good
roads in the winter.
