THE HORROR OF HORRORS. ) pDuring the past six months the press in the northern .states has been confronted by a problem hard to . , . l , solve: and in the repeated Ivnchmgs of the "niggars" in Xew York, Indi- ana, Illinois, Colorado, Kansas and other states, and.wherever the black borate has assailed white women, the aame spirit of vengeance -has been manifest in. the north that has been condemned m the 'whites of the southern states. In meeting out speedy justice in a spirit of frenzy for this the most .damnable of all Crimes the white .man .be he republi can or democrat saint or sinner i actuated by the same passion.

Now we -are fully aware Ihat thou sandi of farmers -are fully f persuaded that the crops raised in Western Ore- fgon are all that can be desired and are very bountiful, and in comparison with 'other parts of the country, we are willing to admit that the citizens f Western Oregon have cause to be but we never saw a country "where every prospect pleased" and just at the proper moment the "latterjfain" fails to materealize the same asj it Pdoes in fOreconf With the natural rainfall and Jffcfm three to twelve inches-of water ,run n , ihe val ey lands, and on the gradual f hill sloj es for thatNmatter, the arable land ana" also the hillsides could. made times produce from (three to. teh much as is now produced J We have seen the smalhgrain and corn crops. the hops and prunes, grass and alfa fa and, in. every case, with millions oi gallons bf water going to waste dai y, crops suffer and fail to produce oi er fifth amuchSis"they should produdel jVewm take the.xhop crop alon with, the climatic 'conditions and tn oi .tne sou with tour jo; . .. i inches of exlra moisture there lii ivoreasonflvhy that crop should no gixe'hfjirout of one hundred dolla: per acre. laKe tne wneat, oat an banej crops.'

What is needed is not visions but realities; and with irrigation the i farm lands would produce from f ortv to sixty tons of mangel wurtzels, from fifteen to forty tons of ruta-bagas or turnips, from six to ten tons of cured i sorghum hay, from four to eight tons ; oi auaua ana a score ot other crops ! to be turned into concentrated farm products beef, pork, mutton, cheese, butter and poultry, besides the present crops which could be increased to bring four or five times in quantity and of a much more excellent quality-. worth from, one hundred to three I hundred dollars per acre. i ' OH GRAVE WHERE IS THY VIC. TORY" At Grand Rapids, Mich., last week a funeral cortege had gone to the Cath olicfcathedral and the casket contain ing the corpse was deposited before the altar and while the funeral cere monies were going on a dispute oc curred on the outside of the cathe-; dral between the union men who drove the hearse and acted as carriers of! the dead and a number of non-union men who drove the carriages of the mourners and friends. A general fight resulted and the union men mopped up the earth with their non union brethren, who abandoned their vehicles and fled to a place of safety. After the ceremonies were over at the cathedral the union men would not drive in the procession with the scab drivers, and the burial services were delayed until the friends of the departed agreed to have only onion men to drive the corpse and the! mourners to the grave.
