Entered at the poitoffice at Toledo, Oregon an
aecond-clau mail matter.
The Eastern Oregon Insane
Judge Hewitt, of the third dis
trict, has rendered a decision in the
suit brought by A. C. Taylor, of
Tolk county, who brought suit to
enjoin the building of a branch in
sane asylum in Eastern Oregon.
The decision makes the temporary
Injunction which had been pre
viously granted, permanent, and
hus puts a stop to the erection of
an asylum In Eastern Oregon, or at
any other place in the stale except
at Salem, unless the supreme court
reverses the-decision, a thing it is
not likely to do. Should the su
preme court uphold Judge Hewitt's
decision in the matter it not only
kills the branch insane asylum, but
- will, in all probability, also kill the
State university at Eugene, the nor
mal schools at Monmouth, Weston
and Drain, all state aid to the agri
cultural college at Corvallis, the
Soldier's Home at Roseburg and
the state reform school situated
about four miles from Salem. If it
was unconstitutional to locate these
institutions at places other than the
seat of government, it is surely not
within the bounds of the constitu
tion to appropriate money for their
maintainance of these institutions
while they are so illegally situated.
There can be no manner of doubt
but what the matter will be pressed
in the future. The Eastern Oregon
people will surely declare that if
they can have no state institutions
in their midst, that the other parts
of the state shall have none either.
And it may strike even closer home
to Salem than the state parasites,
who have been instrumental in
bringing the asylum, case may
think. In Section 3, Article 14, of
the constitution of the state of Ore
gon, there is the following pro
vision: "Provided, that all the pub
lic institutions of the state, hereaf
ter provided for by the legislative
assembly, shall be located at the
seat of government." It was upon
this plain dictum of the constitu
tion that Judge Hewitt based his
decision. In 1864 Salem was de
clared the seat of government, and
still remains so. The state peni
tentiary, insane nwlmn, rtcnf rmi
school, state school for the blind
and the reform school are ordinari
ly spoken of as being located at Sa
lem. But such is not the case. In
fact none but the deaf mute insti
tute and the school for the blind
are located at Salem. The reni
tentiary and the insane asylum are
nearly two miles from Salem, and
reform school is lour miles. It
' would appear that under a strict in
terpretation of the law these latter
institutions are not locally located
The upshot of the whole matter
will be that either there will be an-
amendment to the constitution cov
ering the matter submitted to the
people, or an uprising: of the bal
ance of the state, and a cutting off
an state Institutions not absolutely
located at Salem. Iu cither event
Salem will be a sufferer, and de
servedly so for her mean spirit in
trying to "hog" everything.
Judge Ross, of the U. S. court of
Caluorhia, lias decided against the
government in its claim against the
estate of the late Senator Iceland
Stanford, alleged to have been with
held iu connection with the build
ing of the Central Pacific railroad.
The. case will be appealed to the U.
S. Supreme court.
Wool is still advancing iu price,
and we heard of sales being made
at more than 12 cents a pound; but
the highest quotations are 10 to u
cents, says The Dalles Tiincs-Moun-tnineer.
E. P. Rogers, general freight and
passenger agent of the Southern
Pacific, in speaking of the bettei
times coming, says:
"One of the most striking signs
of an improvement in the times is
seen in the fact that people have
stopped talking about hard times.
In fact they are beginning to talk
the other way. You know 'there
is nothing good or bad but thinking
makes.it so,' and people are begin
ning to find relief in learning that
they are not so badly off after all.
Times are looking up wonderfully
in the East and the wave of im
provement is rapidly coming west
ward. We are looking for remark
ably good business in the fall.
There are splendid crops all along
our lines, and the people are every
where expecting an enormous har
vest with good prices. Our line
certainly passes through the garden
spot of the state. I never saw crops
of all kinds looking better. Every
indication points to an abundant
harvest of. grain, fruit and hops.
When I read the account of drouth
and storms in the east I cannot un
derstand why more people don't
come to Oregon. I know that one
reason is because people here do
not make enough effort to bring the
. . . . .
anvanraor rt tns'.r s ; to the not
ice of outside people. Why, this
state ought to spend $200,000 an
nually for that purpose. Magnifi
cent returns would then be assured,
but the trouble is, we are too apa
thetic, I am afraid we are a little
too selfish and prone to follow the
old motto: 'Save himself who can,
and devil take the hindmost.'
"We receive a great number of
letters of inquiry regarding Oregon
trom all parts of the east and south.
These letters pass through my
hands, and in my small way I do
what I can to bring people here. I
am constantly sending out all the
literature I can get on Oregon to
these people and to our numerous
agencies. Not long since I sent a
big supply to our European agent.
But what is needed is for the state
to take hold of this immigration
matter with vigor and money."
That was a brave conductor on
the Southern Pacific train when it
was held up near Riddies the other
night. When he found that rob
bers were holding up the train he
hid in the ladies' closet, and stayed
hid. too. until the rohhors VinH rnm.
pleted looting the passengers and
had disappeared. His coolness and
bravery were almost equalled by
the sheriff of Klamath county, who
happened to be in one of the coach
es with a prisoner he was convey
ing to the penitentiary at Salem.
Ibis brave sheriff sat a half hour
quietly in his seat while the robbers
were taking up their collection,
and when the lone hiehwavman
finally reached him he meekly de
livered over uis gun uud 75 iu
money. We don't blame the con
ductor much, however. If he had
shot and killed the robber and my
of the bullets had scarred up the in
terior of the car, the company most
likely would have made him wash
up the blood himself, and charged
up and kept out of his wages the
cost of repairing the bullet marks
in the car. That conductor proba
bly knew the company. But the
sheriff, who can furnish a valid ex
cuse for him, unless it was that the
result of brave Sheriff Bogard's fa
tal encounter with train robber Bra
dy was too fresh iu his memory.

When two distinct hreA ar
crossed it is a matter of certainty j ault wit him.
that there will be no regularity of
type in the herd. The prepotency
of every individual animal in the
herd will have been greatly weak
ened, and the produce of such ani
mals is sure to revert to the type of
the original parents. This might
not of itself be deemed so objection'
able, but it is a singular physiolog
ical fact that this throwing back
generally produces the worst rather
than the best characteristics of the
original parents, in a word, a
cross-bred herd deteriorate much
more rapidly than a distinct breed.
.This is easily explainable. The
whole secret of improving the herd
depends on the prepotency of the
sires and dams used, and it has for
more than a century been known
to breeders that prepotency can on
ly be secured by breeding strictly
in the same breed for a nnmbef of
years. Hence the establishment of
herd, stud and fiock books. In the
wild denizens of the forests we see
prepotency in its greatest perfec
tion. Lions, tigers, kangaroos and
other wild animals breed strictly to
type because they have never been
crossed. By crossing of two breeds
prepotency, or the power to pro
duce, their like, is in a large meas
ure lost, and the further ihe cross
ing is pursued the more tbe prepo
tency disappears. Farmers' Guide.

People who have to travel over
the Southern Pacific are to be pit
ied. With a soulless corporation
"standing" them up for the extor
tionate rate of four cents per mile
before they get on the train, and
the bold and reckless train robbers
"holding" them up for the small
remainder of their money, their lot
is indeed a sad one. -
A man who wont take his home
paper has invented a machine by
which he can cook his dinner by
the smoke of his neighbor's chim
ney. He is the same chap who,
during a cold snap last winter, soak
ed his hair in a bucket of water,
went out into the yard and let it
freeze, and then broke it off, to
beat the barber out of the price of
a hair cut. Ex.
D. W. Ralston, of Yamhill coun
ty, will start about the 15th of this
mouth, for Chicago with a train
load of sheep and lambs. The stock
has been largely 111 the vicinity of
McMinnville, but will be shipped
irom roruaud. Tins is the sec
ond direct shipment made by Mr
Ralston this season, and he is open
mg up a new market for Oregon
live stock. His former shipment
netted him a good profit over the
Portland price and this shipment
will no doubt be more profitable
because it is larger.

Oue would be led to judge by the
above, if he was unacquainted with
ine lacts, tuat Jetterson was some
isolaied place remote from railroad
facilities. Such is not the case by
any means. Jefferson is a station
of considerable importance on the
main line of the Southern Pacific
railroad, but the attitude of that
corporation is so grasping and mer
ciless, and their freight rates so un
reasonable and extortionate, that
the business men of Jefferson can
not pay them and compete with
surrounding towns. Indeed they
can haul their freight by wagon for
over twenty miles alongside the
railroad track at a less rate than
the railroad will haul it. And the
state of Oregon pays-a railroad com
mission $10,000 per year, and the
people of Jefferson help pay it.

Wipe out her purity, and man sinks
beneath the wave of despair, with

that any hog can root up the fairest

be sorry to see him "turned down."
