Advertise the County.
All through the eastern and mid
dle states there will be a great
exodus for the Pacific coast during
the next two years. The people
who are getting ready to leave that
country are nearly all men of some
means, that is, they have enough
to buy and improve a home. These
people will all come to the principal
cities of the Pacific states and then
will branch and sitt out to different
locali ties. Oiic of liie piiucipal
agencies to induce immigration in
Oregon, and to direct and care for
it after it arrives, is the State Board
of Immigration, at Portland. We
visited the rooms of this board a
few days ago and was considerably
impressed with the display they
keep continually on exhibition of
the state's products, and with the
systematic and intelligent plan of
disseminating information which
they have adopted. They have
much literature concerning Oregon
and the Pacific Northwest in general
but we noticed a great dearth of
local literature. This is bad.
Every county in the state should
have a readable, reliable and con
densed write-up of its advantages
and location. Not boom articles as
was published by the train loads in
days of yore, but good plain matter
setting forth the location of the
county, resources, industries and
advantages. A large amount of
this matter should be kept on the
tables of'the State Board of Immi
gration for local distribution to new
comers who visit those rooms, and
also for mailing east to inquirers.
It behoves Lincoln county, especi
ally, to take an interest in this
matter. We want new settlers and
new capital. We are not exactly
isolated, but we are off to one side
and the only way for us to attract
attention to our advantages is by
blowing our own horn. We should
keep a pile of literature at the
rooms of the State Board of Immi
gration in Portland, and also at the
Oregon City and Roseburg land
offices. A man coming to Oregon
from the east with no well defined
idea as to where he desires to locate,
wouia oe easily induced in our
tavor by a readable pamphlet setting
forth our advantages and induce
ments. This matter is an import
one, and one if neglected will work
to our hurt.
One of the lank injustices of our
present system of running our courts
was illustrated a few months ago
in this county. One man sued
another for damages, bringing his
suit in the county court. He de-
pusited his fees to the amount of
eight dollars and the machinery of
the law was set in motion. It cost
the county the time of the sheriff
one day in serving papers, the time
of the clerk one day in attendance
of the trial, and perhaps the greater
part of another in doing the clerical
work, the time of the Judge one
day in hearing the trial, and nine
dollars for a jury, costing the county
all told about $25. The county
received $8, and the taxpayers stood
losers to the amount of about $17.
All this was in a purely private
suit, in which the taxpayers out
side of the parties interested had
not the slightest interest.
Salem is indeed a city of holdups.
Even the school directors whose
duty it is there to elect a clerk,
have got into a dead-lock. They
have been balloting for about four
1 weeks at odd spells on clerk and
'have failed to make a selection.
The cyclone crop in the east and
south seems to have ripened earlier
than usual this year. The papers
report several already, the last one
being a very destructive one in
The Albany Herald has started
up the annual springtime extension
of the O. C. & E. over the moun
tains. This report is a very familiar
one, and the papers of the state
would be very lonesome without it
at this tin:c cf the year.
The Philomath Journal has given
up the ghost, and one more l'ead
stone may now be placed in the
Benton county newspaper grave
yard. The reason assigned for the
discontinuance of the paper was
lack of patronage. The subscrip
tion list was turned over to the
Under the new tariff law the
people of the United States can buy
their voncou, their vocoa, their
balm of gilead, their beauxite, their
unmanufactured dried blood, the
family cocculus indicus, their divi
divi, munjeet and zaffer all free of
taxation. There is no duty upon
any of these household articles so
necessary in the family life of the
poor. The exemption of these
things should, and douotless will
be duly appreciated by the people.
Samuel J. Tilden's idea of the
functions of a democratic govern
ment were embodied in the follow
ing brief sentence- Nothing should
be done by the federal government
and nothing by any
governmental power which
individuals can do for themselves."
The tendency of form of govern
ment would be to make people
more aelf-reliant and self-supporting,
and the higher they are devel
oped along this line the need for
government would become less and
the government itself less burden
some. Americans are the most inventive
people on earth. To them have
been issued nearly 600,000 patenU,
or more than one-third of all the
patents issued in the world. No'
discovery of modern years has been
of greater benefit to mankind than
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy, or has done
more to relieve pain and suffering.
J. W. Vaughn, of Oakton, Ky.,
says: "I have used Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Rem
edy in ray family for several years,
and find it to bo the best medicine
I ever used for cramps in the
stomach and bowels." For sale

According to law the tax roll
will be closed next Monday and the
unpaid taxes turned in as delin
quent. There has been but a very
small percentage of the taxes paid
as yet, and the greater portion of
the roll will go delinquent. At
this time of the year it is all the
people can do to live, to say nothing
of paying taxes. People have every
thing to buy at this time of the
year, and nothing to sell. The
oounty court will no doubt extend
the time for collection before the
penalty is added. To do otherwise
would impose a hardship and would
be of little use. Collection of taxes
cannot be forced now. By the
middle of summer, when the people
have something to sell, then the
taxes can he crowded.
