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

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.
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.
ROSEBURG .... Oregon

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

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
