AXOTHKK CLKAX-VI DAY.
Some earnest efforts were made
Friday to improve the appearance of
the city. A stranger coming here,
however, could not notice any
enter that of War. We have not one
such as these.
"Some day as sure as Anglo-Saxon
blood runs red, there is to be an aw
ful war. There are two nations that
can contest for the Pacific, and this
war will be settled at an awful cost."
Governor Chamberlain has been
asked to declare a quarantine against
the sheepmen In the states of Wash
ington, Nevada and California. Those
men have been bringing thousands
of scabby sheep into the Oregon
ranges, with the result that much of
marked difference unless he were the stock In this state has become
shown jut what streets were cleared.
It would take about thirty minutes
affected with the scab pest. The just
contention of the Oregon sheep
for each residenter to clean his or owners Is that all sheep coming to
her premises and place the rubbish i the reserves be dipped. This method
collected in the street, where the
wagons could get them. It ought
surely to be 'done today, while the
In time eradicates the pest. This vl
tal question will no doubt be so set
tied as to protect the vast amount

The Roseburg-Coos Bay electric
road has apparently taken the people
of 'the territory affected by storm.
The press of the different towns is
giving the proposition added impetus
every day. When the time conies for
the raising of the financial backing
there will be no difficulty if the
amount of money raised Is in pro
portion to the enthusiasm. The fol
lowing editorial from the Coquille
Sentinel serves as a keynote to the
"The proposed electric road be
tween this county and Roseburg Is
arousing enthusiasm wherever the
project has been explained. The peo
ple of both counties can see the ben
efits that it would bring to the coun- j
try, not only in the way of
the services of the men. A great deal
of time and expense has been gone to,
and it will be rendered useless unless
each citizen co-operates today. It
might be suggested that the school
children be asked to do their share.
Today is Saturday, and they could
spend a few minutes in cleaning up
the ground around the house to ex
cellent advantage, not only to them- ,
selves, but to the city. Possibly If '
