Governor Pennoyer was opposed
to Oregon making an exhibit at the
world's fair. He opposed it on
principle, and when the governor
takes a stand on principle he stays
there until the volcanoes freeze
over. It now looks as if the gover
nor has appointed a board of mana
gers who are in sympathy with his
viesw. At all events, the report",
that come from Chicago concerning
the Oregon exhibit are of a very
discouraging character. Kx-Min-
ister Thompson says that when he
went into the Oregon quarters he
felt ashamed that he was an Ore-
gonian. Others who have been to
the fair tell the same story. It is
mortifying to have such confessions,
but there is no way tododge around
the trouble. From descriptions we
have had of the Oregon exhibit we
can imagine pretty well what it is.
it the same old oulfft that the immi
gration board and the horticultural
society have had on exhibition at
the Portland exposition for the last
three or four years'. There are the
same glass jars filled with brandy
peaches, cherries and apricots, a nil

the same way we hate seen them
so often. The exhibit lookn pretty

Ancient History but no Facts,
1 ne corvaius uazette gave a
labored two column article last week
m wnicn 11 auer.iptea to make a
statement of the trouble between
the two counties. It was simply
another case of a mountain laboring
and bringing forth a mole.
Hie greater part of the article
consists of ancient history. The
startling statements that Senator
Crosno was elected in 1800 ami
Representatives Helkuap and Jef-
irey s wevo eiecteu in 1802 is as
well known to the people of both
counties as his next statement that
the county was divided near the
middle in 1893. None of these
statements have anything to do
with the question now at issue.
The statement, however, that
the majority of the ta. payers in
the portion cut off did not wish such
action taken, while not germane to
the question, is absolutely false.
Senator Crosno has a petition now
in his office on which there are over
600 signatures asking for such di
visions, and tiiat more tliau consti
tutes a majority of the taxpayers of
He asserts that the clerk of Hen
ton county was unable to make
out the taxroll in the time prescribe
ed by law and deliver the sameto
the clerk of Lincoln county K 'for
several good and sufficient reasons,"
but a total failure is made to men
tion a single one ot the reasons.
And when it was finally received it
was a mass of errors and omissions
that the Lincoln county courtvwere
fully justified in not paying for the
same. As for the papers iu the
circuit court, it did not devolve up
on Lincoln county to pay for such
transcript but the litigants, and the
fees should follow the cases.
The assertion that the provisions
of section 5, of the bill dividing the
county are difficult to construe is
absolutely untenable. Knglish
languish could not make it plainer.
Take the clause referring to the tax
roll; "The county clerk of IJenton
county shall, within thirty days
after this act shall have gone into
operation, make out and deliver to
the county clerk of Lincoln county
a transcript of all taxes assessed up
on persons and property within the
said county of Lincoln which was
previously included within the
limits of Benton county." Could
language make that any plainer?
The very same clause is to be found
in every county division bill passed
in Oregcn for years, and it remained
for Benton county to be the first
parent county to attempt in any
manner to cloud or befog the mean
ing of the clause. And again the
clause concerning the payment of
taxes could not be plainer; "And
all taxes which shall remain unpaid
upon the day this act shall become
a law shall be paid to the proper
officials of Lincoln county." And
in the face of as plain language as
above employed the proper officers
of Benton county could not under
stand their duty and were compell
ed to consult "a legal adviser" as
to what they hhould do. Such ad
mission does not speak in very ex
alted terms of the intelligence of
the officers of Iieiiton county who
were compelled to seek such ad
vice. The statement that the roll as
turned over contains all the proper
ty in the precincts or parts of pre
cincts of Lincoln county is abso
lutely untrue, as a glance at the
roll will determine.
As to the sheriff of Lincoln coun
ty making assessments on property
not found 011 the roll wc would say
that the law makes it his plain duty
to do so. He can have no official
knowledge outride of his tax roll
and when he finds property in Lin
coin county not on that roll he must
assess the same or violate his oath
of office. And when parties have
paid their whole lax t Benton
county where a part of it belongs
to Lincoln, it seci,is to us that they
have .proper recourse against the
sheriff of Benton county who wrong
fully collected the tax.
The Corvallis people are greatly
worked up over the probable re
moval of the carriage works to
Portland. There M but little doubt
but that it w ill !e removed.
In Australia they utilize barbwire
fences for telephonic purposes.

The remarkable fertility of Lin

' The Salem Statesman vigorously
denies the charge that the people of
Salem are behind the injunction
suit in connection with the location
of the Soldier's Home at Roseburg,
but asserts on the contrary that the
people of Salem with but one or
two exceptions desire to see the
Home located at Roseburg and the
branch asylum located in Fastem
Oregon. The Statesman is evident
ly taking a tumble to the fact that
the people of the state of Oregon
are not convinced that Salem is the
only town in the state.
We have received the prosjicctus

Corvallis. That is a grand institu

paid to Latin and Greek, Calculus

quit flying so high, and get down
