Patriotism, tbo lovo of homo anil na
tive land, is one of the noblest attributes
of iho human eoul. With most men it is
a passion akin to the lovo of family dear
as life itself. Patriotism has encouraged
men to face death at tho cannon's
mouth. It has nerved the sonl to deeds
of daring of the highest order. It has
invoked a spirit that defied opposition of
tyrants. It has buoyed tho soul
midet oppression to deeds ct valor. It
has enabled man to triumph over seem
ing impossibilities, because it is born of
deifie attributes that know not failure.
This inborn lovo of hemo follows man
while wandering in foroign lands. It is
a part and parcel of his very being, es
pecially if he has como to mature years
Thus it is the adult foreigner comes to
this country with hia mind imbued with
the customs, manners and laws of the
couutry of his birth iuwoveu into hia
thoughts, leelinga and sentiments. From
them he cannot divest himself wholly,
even it no would, tin ideas oi rigut and
wrong are, to a great degreo, fixed in his
mind. In nine cases out of every ten ho
will set up a standard of judgmgenton
the plan of his youthful training. You
will generally hear him praiao the insti

shores, and before ho has had time to
study and become imbued with die
spirit and genius of American laws, cus

of habit, seek to carry out the ideas he
has received in hia native land. Ho is
really un-American until he has had
time to investigate, tako in, digest and
assimilate tue new oruer oi tilings.
Hence it is best for the body politic, for
lis own good, to require that all for
eigners before becoming invested
with governmental functions remain in a
sort of passive state, as onr native born
citizens are required to do, for 21 years.
During this interim, or period of proba

Ireland once supported in reasonable
comfort 8,000,000 of people. Her manu
facture of linen, silk, wool and cotton,
protected by Tariffs and encouraged by
subsides, absorbed her capital, em
ployed her laborers, promoted a diver
sity of industries,and insured prosperity.
England was her next friend, advised,
cajoled and flattered her into the belief
that she could raise raw materials on
her fertile soil, sell them to her, buy of
her the manufactured products more
cheaply than she could make them, and
that Free-Trade would be a national
blessing. Beguiled by her, Ireland con
sented, her Tariff was gradually re
pealed, horizontally destroyed, her Bub-
sidie3 withdrawn. Since then she has

England, buying her manufactured
goods of her at prices determined by
England alone, and today, with only
5,000,000 of people, is the poorest, most the d

At a social session of the B. P. O. Elks
uelil luorsuay niijut, one oi tue mem
bers, after an eloquent appeal to the pre'
siding officer, Exalted Ruler Fred Page
Tuslin, prevailed upon him to vacate
his seat and turn over the lodge to the
tenJur mercies of a brother Elk. Asher
Marks was called to the chair and after
promptly fining the Exalted Ituler a
gOJi round sum lor ins uesileccy in giv
ing up hia chair of office, (and also to
give bita a dose of his favorite prescrip
tion to derelict members), proceeded to
the business in baud by announcing
that Dr. CotTraan had something of ini
porianca to communicate to the Elks
assembled, and particulary to tho Ex
alted Kuler thereof. The doctor, after a
brief and appropriate addref s, presented
to the Exalted Ruler, on behalf of Rose-
burg Lodge o. 30, ti. V. fc.lks, as a
slight token of their high regard and
esteem, an elegant and costly set of cuff
buttons, emblematic of the order, made
from tho teeth of an elk, with heavy gold
mountings and diamond Eellings. As
soon as the bewildered ExalteJ Ruler
could "fetch breath," which was not for
several sjesnds, he feelingly responded,
in words and manner attesting his deep
appreciation of the honor bestowed upon
him. And it is safe to say that the

"A Free Ballot."
J.he democrats claim witli a brago-
docio air that they arc in favor of a free
ballot. But such claims are not verified
by facts. At the primaries in this city
recently, the bosses ticket was of "royal
blue" to designate tho royalty of the
"power behind the throne," and when
the plebian white ballots were pre
seined, the scribe took down his name
and checked it on the list to record who
would not "stand pat" when the ukase
had been proclaimed by the czar. By
this method of frceballoting several who
aro under pecuniary obligations to the
czar and royal family, walked up with
the "blue iiug" ticket and shoved it
into the hat and turned away, Galileo
like, muttering, "You can't play this
game on mo next June."

The effort that is being made by the
people of Douglas county to secure a
wagon road from Oakland to the Bo
hemia mines is causing some alarm
among the citizens of Cottage Grove, and
tbey will make renewed efforts to secure
the immediate completion of the wagon
road from that place to the mines.
The route of the Bohemia wagon road
extends up Row river from Cottage
Grovo and tho road is now completed to
what is known as the Warehouse, a dis
tance of over 30 miles. Thia leaves
about seven miles of the road uncom
pleted for wagon travel, and at present
everything must be carried into the
mines by pack animals from the Warehouse.
Bohemia is located about (JO miles
from Oakland and a wagon road has
been built to within 20 miles. The citi
zens of Douglas county are now raising
money with which to complete the road.
Should it be finished the trade of the
mines will be thrown in that direction,
and lost to L3ne county. Eugene
The foregoing is, with a lew trifling
discrepances in distances, about th
situatiou. Lane county and the citizens
of Cott3ge Grove in particular, wants the
road completed through to the mines.
Douglas county, particularly the Oak
land portion of it, also want the road
completed. Lane county wants it to
keep tho profitable traffic she now has,
and Douglas that sho may get what she
is now deprived of by reason of the Lane
county road and trait. Lane is striving
with might aud main to secure funds to
complete the road from Coltago Grove,
and Douglas is speculating upon the
probability of its being a paying invest
metit. If tho people of Douglas who
will be benefitted by tho completion of
the Oakland road do not "get in and
drill," very soon they will get left, for
the early completion of the road in to
the Bohemia district is a foregone con
clusion. The place that gets t'.e biggest
