Are the property o vners of To-:

The present coikIUkmi is deplorable.
There arc no streets, no ways of
ingress m e;;ress icu the traveling
public. This must be remedied
and that soon.
It is unite u-dikely that the
school fun 1 will be apportioned be

superintendent is noti:ie,l by the
treasurer that the money is ready

The last legislature employed 179
clerks at a total expense to the

A synopsis of the game laws of
Oregon as ma le by an exchange
are as follows: Bool: agents may
be killed from June ist to May 31st,
inclusive; peddlers from January ist
to December 31st inclusive; can
vassers, male, from April ist to
March 31st, female, from April 15
to April 14, inclusive; open season
all year aroit'id 011 life insurance
The last session laws are being

the state who are entitled to them.
County Clerk Jones' received three
copies the first of the week. They
comprise n voluminous volume, the
greater portion of which is taken up
with special laws for various local
ities. As soon as the books can be
completed all the justices of the
peace will be supplied with a copy.
The steamuhip Danube and cap
tain are in a queer shape. The
marine law's have been scanda
lously violated. She has on more
passengers than allowed by law and
the law will not let them be landed.
This is a complicated case. More
passengers than the law allows and
the laws of the land won't allow
them to get off. The Oregonian
can explain if the court can't.
Better throw them over board.
Deputy Game Warden C. W.
Watts went to Corvallis last week
and arrested Zeph Job, the well
known banker on charge of violat
ing the game law by building a
dam across the river at Niagara,
preventing fi h from passin;; up the
stream. J. R, Wyatt appeared for
the state and J. K. Weaiheif.ir and
C. E. Wolvcrton for the defense.
The complaint was demurred to on
the grounds that it did not state
sufficient facts to constitute a cause
of action, and because the court did
not have jurisdiction; but it was
overruled. Trial was set for May
31st at Albany. The case will lie
hotly contested and will be taken
to the mipremc court.
C. II. (lest, attorney for the Ore
gon Pacific railroad has re tit mud

F. Jones for transcribing records
had been with-drawn, and that the
contract hadtiecn awarded to Vir
gil E. Walters, of Corvallis, the

$5,500. County Commissioners

An exchange gives the following
recipe for killing a town:
Buy of peddlers as often and as
much as possible.
Denounce your merchant because
they make a profit on their goods.
Make your own town out a very

Refuse to unite in any scheme for
the betterment of the material in
terests of the people.
Keep every cent you get and
don't do any thing of a public na

out of it directly.
Tell your merchant that you can
buy goods n good deal cheajier in
some other town mid charge them
If a stranger comes to your town,
tell him everything is overdone and
predict a general crash in the town
in the future.
Knife every man that disagrees
with you on the best methods of

you have no faith in it.

If you are a meichant don't ad

save you a few dimes, and make
the paper look as if it was printed
in a one horse town.
If you are a farmer, curse the

your neighbors, make them think
the business men are robbers and

A temporary injunction has been
sued out by D. C. Sherman restrain

home at Roseburg, as decided upon
by the locating board. The claim
is made that under tiie constitution
all state institutions must be locat

There is one great trouble among
growers of small fruits, They tty
to grow too many to the acre and
then crowd them. Solid rows of
blackberries, raspberries, currents
and eveii strawberries are not as
good as when placed in hills either
for bearing or withstanding the
droughts. The canes in raspberries
and blackberries should also be few
and cut down to at least five feet
high. These facts have been fully
demonstrated in Oregon by many
growers, such as Seth Lewelling,
the venerable nurseryman of Mil
waukee, who has been enlarging on
berry growing for 30 years. -Pacific
