No question of internal improve ment is commanding more attention ' at the present time than the subject of improved public roads. No other j subject is receiving more active and practical consideration in the states and territories of the United States. National, state and interstate high-, ways are beginning to be recognized as integral parts of the transports- tion svstems of the countrv. The : present movement is designed, and set the benefit derived from China in the writer believes is destined, to : supplying a market for our flour and unite the agricultural, business and a few other products. Portland, San commercial interests for establishing j Francisco and a few other western a uniform system of permanent high- shipping points, however, would jep ways. commensurate with the needs i ordize and menace Pacific Coast labor of the country. Demands of the simply to maintain the shipping in public for road improvements are in- terests of those places with the mon creasing as the subject becomes bet-; golians. However, the trade of the ter understood. There is hardly a j Philippines and Japan will soon in farming section so remote from the crease to such proportions that even centers of this campaign that main- j should we lose the heathen Chinese tains the ring of a dominant note trade the loss would hardly be per from platform to press, that, among , ceptible on this coast within a few its population, men are not found to- years. Re-enact the Chinese exclu- day heralding the benefit to be de rived by adoption of modern methods of road building and maintenace. POLITICIANS GETTING BUSY. With the next state election than a year distant, politicians and men who aspire to office are "getting busy Democrats scheming to lay low the mightiness of their Republi can brethren and encouraged by re cent big victories in Multnomah coun ty: Republicans laying plans to re gain grounds they have lost and to oust George E. Chamberlain from the Governor's seat. On the Democratic side, all expec tations center in Governor Chamber lain s re-ejection, nor does it appear that the unterrified hope to exalt any of their brethern to other high places in the state government, save per- islature and perhaps a Circuit Judge! in Baker county to succeed Sam White, appointed soon after the last Legislature by the Governor. But inasmuch as the operation of the direct primary law for nomina tions to state offices is as yet a mys tery, and Republicans know ndt but that it may set disintegrating forces working in their party, it is yet early to make prophecies of Democratic expectations. Democrats themselves hope that the nomination of candi dates by the direct primary system will make further breaches in the Republican fortifications and Republi cans fear that this may come to pass. In the Republican camp a vigorous effort will be made to stay the march of the Democratic hosts. On all sides a cry has gone up for reunion of the Republican factions. Republi cans everywhere admit that they have lost much ground in the last few years, and begin to see visions of Democratic pow er in the Legislature so strong as to control legislation if concliatory measures are not adopted. The cause of unionism manifestly has been complicated in Chicago with other causes that are unfit for publication. THE PROGRESSIVE STORE FULLERTON & RICHARDSON SYSTEM, ORDER AND CLEANLINESS ARE THE CUIDINC RULES OF OUR LABORATORY THE DRUG STORE OF QUALITY NEAR THE DEPOT ROSEBURG .... Oregon tbe cooues out Freed from restrictions, or with those restrictions modified in any con siderable degree, Chinese coolie im migration to the United States would again become as great and as danger ous a menace as ever it was. Chinese of the lower classes are not and can- ! not become desirable or worthy resi dents of this country. The "Yellow peril ' is not a myth. It is actual. True, it is now remote, but that is because of the exclusion law. To rv peal that law would be to remove the ' barrier and bring the peril dangerous ly near. This the government should not do. The government cannot af ford to admit Chinese coolies to this country and permit their labor to be I protected by their government against any such calamitous competition. All of this boycott bluff on the part of the Chinese, should agita' e no or e c n th'i coast. China must and will have our flour and other products, this being the nearest, best and cheapest source of supplies for that nation. China is a nation of 350,000.000 people, a large proportion being coolies, who with the abolishment of the exclusion act would flood this country and with their cheap wages work the greatest hardship on our laboring class, which would far more than off- sion law in slightly modified form and keep out cheap Chinese labor and the most undesirable, ignorant and worth less class, from the point of citizen ship, of any of the low foreign ele ment. Capital is behind this agita tion for the abolishment'of the Chi nese exclusion act. Harry Robertson in his testimony i in the Mitchell trial, much of which was volunteered, provea nimsell un mindful of generous benefactors, de void of gratitude, an ingrate and a traitor. With bombastic arrogance and repugnant egotism he adjusted his eyeglasses and entered into the most minute details of the personal affairs of his aged benefactor and employer, in many instances without solicitation, thereby exhibiting base ingratitude and vindictiveness. He was naturally expected to submit true fd straightforward testimony but he went farther and showed a dispo sition to persecute and condemn a man toward whom he should have shown the greatest possible clemency and still maintain his own integrity. Such an ingrate should be held in contempt by all men. Not satisfied with trying the land fraud cases through the columns of certain local papers in this state, the government or some of its officials hare supplied magazine writers in other parts of the United States, says the Statesman. The latest addition to this highly interesting class of lit erature apptars in Harper's Weekly for June 24. There are still a num ber of magazines that the claims of the prosecution have not appeared in as yet, and perhaps the cases may be tried by the courts before all the oth ers of these magazines sit on them While Roseburg will not make the bird of freedom scream on the glori ous Fourth, there will be something doing in September at the district fair. That is when we will shine. Neighbors are multiplying in the neighborhood. 9 UNWRITTEN HISTORY There is a women up in Oregon who lacks a great deal of being a di plomat, and if she is a sample of the "good society" up there, she ought to be coralled and kept in bounds. Mr. Speaker Cannon, than whom there is no more polished society man in offi cial circles in Washington, rugged though he may be as a politician, was to make a speech at the opening ex ercises at the Portland Exposition, and when he came upon the stand, much heated and flushed, he was giv en a place close to the front. Near him stood a pitcher of ice water on a table, and a glass beside it. He got himself a drink of the cooling fluid, which was bad, considering his heat ed condition, and a little later, find ing his head uncomfortably heated, fished a piece of ice from the pitcher and began rubbing it over his some what bald think tank, says the Na tional Tribune. Here is where it is said that Mrs. W. H. Goode, wife of the president of the exposition, came out strong. She was somewhere around in the horizon, and seeing Speaker Cannon smash the rules of her hidebound kind of society, summoned Vice Pres ident ineoaore naray, 01 tne expo sition, to her side and directed him to inform Speaker Cannon not to do such an ill-bred thing again, or words to that effect. Now, the very funny part of it is that the man Hardy had no more sense than to carry the mes sage to Speaker Cannon. That high official personage immediately left the platform, and declared that such an impertinent outfit as the Portland Exposition people could go hang, or to a hotter place than he had ever been yet, before he would say a word to them; but some of his friends rec ognized the awful consequence that might ensue, and brought about peace, and Speaker Cannon made one of his rattling good speeches. Now, if Mr. W. H. Goode, husband of the meddlesome woman, has to come to Congress to ask an appropriation to make up a deficit in Exposition ex penses, you can imagine what will happen. That little bill will never see the light of day after introduc tion. Mr. Speaker Cannon has a good ''rememberer." Tbe little town of Drain, where one of the State Normal Schools is located shows a nerve and enterprise worthy of a much larger place and might well be emulated by many other places in the state. The last legislature madejeo provision for the payment of tbe teachers and expenses of Normal ! schools and rather than have the ! school closed, the citizens of Drain have raised amotg themselves the sum of $10,000 and deposited it with the clerk of the board of Regents for their use in continuing the school the coming year. They may be reim bursed sometime, nevertheless they are entitled to great credit for their efforts to maintain the school. Cot tage Groye Leader.

Fourth of July at Portland A grand celebration will be held at the Exposition grounds on July 4th. Many noted speakers will be in attendance.

Tho Southern Pacific Company will sell round trip tickets at reduced rates from all points on Oregon lines to Portland and return Every effort will be put forth to make this celebration the great eat in tbe history of the Northwest. George Quine, of Riddle, was in Rose burg Wednesday on business, snd incidentty purchased a few fisgs for th Fourth, not because he wanted them but because tbe children did. Musings Bet all of the resolutions are well planked. The Trail in the road to pleasure at I'ortland. Song for today : "Keep in the Middle of the Kofcd." Even the railroad companies believe in good roads. Why don't they improve the rocky road to the depot? In any event, the convention intends keeping to the right. 'Tisn't necessary to have a highway as broad as it is long. What in the world is delaying the ai'- vent of the Toga cigar. But, if roads are first class how can a farmer dodge the autos? "Roughing It" traveling over certain roads in Douglas county. "Whither have ye made a road to day?'' Samuel xxvii ; 10. Why don't the (iood Roads people, adopt corduroy as a uniform? A path to glory should be the reward of those advocating better roads. Haven't noticed the CJood Roadsters wearing raiu coats here, have you? The need of a nation is the school. and of the country the passable road. Hope they make inroads on pit-seut conditions between here and Winches ter. A road boss is almost as popular in the country as a policeman rs In the city. All roads may lead to Rome, but trav el doesn't go that way. It all comes lo Roaeburg. Although the delegates are road agents Sheriff McClallen is not working ou the case. Hope the delegates find a speedy way to work out their theories on Douglas county roads. A girl never likes to see a young man she admires squander bis money on other girls. Roads paved with good intentions are no earthly good. They need grading and gravelling. Wide tires are expensive, but they don't coat as much as keeping a country roads in repair. Wonder if there are any rural mail carriers among the delegates? They'd be qualified to speak. What would you do if you had $100,- 000. "I'd own an automobile.'' Then you wouldn't have a $100,000. An eastern fashion journal says womeri are wearing larger shoes. Iney are probably numbered as small aa ever. It beats anything how a girl whoee stockings fit her well is never afraid of a hammock that bucks like a broncho. Why don't they change the wheels of chug-wagon and make roadrullera of the machines" Make em useful as well as ornamental.
