This is a good and laudable resolu
tion. With an enterprising people
here, Jackson county is destined at no
distant day to take first rank among
the most favored counties of the State.
No person can assign a good and suffi
cient reason why we may not hold a
respectable fair from year to year.
Our agricultural, mineral and manu
facturing resources are almost unlimit
ed, and in the matter of horses, cattle,
sheep and hogs, no county can excel
us. Jackson county has won an en
viable reputation through the number
and excellence of her fine horses. If
wo desire to advertise our stock, pro
ducts, manufactures, etc., let us make
a public exhibition and show what we
have and we can do. A county fair
managed for tho public good cannot
but result greatly to the advantage of
the community at large.
Let every person interested in the
prosperity of this county lend a help
ing hand, and we shall have a fair of
which none of us need feel ashamed.
It can be done, and all there lacks is
the disposition. Let us all lift togeth
er for once and see what the result
will be. We feel certain that we shall
so far surpass our own expectations as
to be for once happily disappointed.

Executive Department by the Land
Office at Linkvilie that instructions
have been received at that office from
the General Land Office at Washing

rules that lands are, embraced in the
Surveyor General’s list that he has
filed and may hereafter furnish that
office certifying to their swampy char

of Oregon. The request for this with
drawal, says the Mercury, was made
more than three years ago by the Gov

by him since. This action of (he Gen
