There are 34 sheriffs of Oregon due I and officials' stands reconstructed
in this city on Thursday for a two
day conference on conditions and
people and methods applicable to
their especial department of the pub
lic service of the State. They will be
welcome unless they shall have some
thing "up their sleeves" in the way of
old processes that have reasonably
been deemed outlawed and have ceas
ed to bother some of us; but perhaps
they won't serve them until the last
moment of their stay, and this will
qualify matters, someh
Primarily, they will be guests of
their president, Sheriff M. E. Pome
roy of this county, but they are, prac
tically, the guests of the city. We
are all interested in them; they are
interestng people; sometimes absorb
ingly so; but in the main they are a
live, energetic lot, always ' reaching
out for something that will be of ad
vantage to the Stafe and society and
the peace and safety of mankind.
Their presence here on the two
most important days of the Regatta
season will have a tendency to re
lieve us of the annoyances that flock
in with the faker the dead-beat, the
picayune-sport, the skin-gamester and
the bum gentry generally. There is
no love lost between the sheriffs of
Oregon and this ilk, and that many
of the former will have an intimate,
and record, acquaintance with the
latter, will mimify the situation con
siderably for the city in this respect.
The city k theirs' for Friday and
Saturday next, alright!.
, HARRIMAN HAS SAID IT.
Mr. Harriman has sent word up out
of the wilderness, by the Governor of
Oregon, that as soon as the locations
can be determined, railway lines are
to be laid across the center of the
commonwealth, east and west; and
that the Columbia Southern is to be
extended southwardly through the
same center, on opposite courses.
This sounds good, and will be good
When it is don; but so far as Ore
gon's development has been concern
ed, it has demonstrated that Mr. Har
riman has nearly as much time as he
has money, and that is going some if
he has stood still in the premise all
these unfruitful years. We will be
lieve it when we see it accomplished,
and shall be as glad to see it as any
one in the country; and gladder yet,
to see the Tillamook country opened
up, via our own city; to Portland and
the other great markets of the coun
try. But we will reserve our 'yip
ping" and heel-cracking until the
rates, schedules and trains are in
Day by day the situation is clear
ing in the telephone field, so far as
he assurance of pew and better serv
ice is concerned. This is the day the
San Francisco officials of the P. S.
Company are to arrive here and let
the contract for the new headquar
ters, and the terms of the contract
aforesaid require it to be finished
within 90 days from date of its ac
ceptance by the successful bidder; we
have already been assured of the new
switchboard; the cabling being al
ready done, and the new connections
from the cables to the house and
office 'phones well underway, there
would seem to be some rational show
for this company's doing all it has
said it would do.
Just what the Northwestern peo
ple are going to do has not developed
as yet, but it is certain that they will
make pood use of the franchise they
have received from the council, which ,
is a valuable one. With both con-
with the special object of giving the
great crowds the best possible view
of the races, modern announcing ma
chines to keep the spectators inform
ed as to the time and positions of the
horses, and a track that is known to
be lightning fast, will give Oregon's
state fair the best equipment for its
harness races afforded by any track
in the west.
The races this year will be the
rasiesr ever seen on tne coast, l wo
purses of $5000 each, and six purses
of $1000 each, the largest stakes ever
offered in the west, will bring to
gether the best blood in America.
The track record of 2:06i, which is
a very fast mark, will undoubtedly be
broken, and there are horsemen who
predict that the time may go as low
as oetore the weeks racine
comes to an end.
The work of building the addition
to the big grandstand has been com
pleted, and the structure now seats
about double the number of. specta
tors it formerly accommodated. The
grandstand has been built down to
the track with a row of boxes extend
ing along the entire front. There
will be 56 boxes in all
This will eliminate the bleachers in
front of the grandstand, but the spec
tators along the sidelines will be af
forded an excellent view of the
horses, as the fences have all been cut
down to a height of three feet 'six
inches. The entire fence on the in
side has been newly built. A double
fence has been put up on the inside
to keep the crowd back off the rail.
The judges' stand has been lowered
to a level with the grandstand, and
the timers', stand has been cut off.
The wire has been moved 60 feet
north: Electrical connection will be
made between the judges' stand ana
the bandstand. The grandstand will
be enclosed with a wire fence, and
electric turnstiles installed. The
stands and betting and the saloon
fixtures in the interior have been torn
Out, as neither betting nor liquor
selling will be tolerated this year.
Another improvement is the instal
lation of automatic announcing ma
chines. They will flash the time of a
heat instantly, as well as the posi
tions of the horses as they finish.
These machines are worked with a"
keyboard. Numerous other improve
ments will be made, which it would
be impossible to mention in a single
i it mS.

good clothes or otherwise, is in

There are likewise two ways of selling them high priced and
reasonable. Our clothes are sold reasonable. If you are going to
buy a suitremember we sell Fechhemer Fishel OosEFF-EFP and

By wireless the naval authorities in
London are able to communicate in
stantly with over 300 warships at sea
within a distance of several hundred
miles. In ability to concentrate and
"feed a tight" the British navy is jus
tified in claiming a powerful advant
age. , ' '
A writer1 on the commerce of the
great lakes thinks the day is coming
when they will be overcrowded with
ships. By hitching on to deep chan
nels in the Mississippi valley there
will be room enough for the fleets of
the world, and the lake craft can
come out and keep busy all winter.

Personal Liberty Doctrine
Subversive of Government.
Br Jud WILLIAM H. WALLACE, Candidal for Coventor of Mbtouri.
HE most absorbing theme with tho Americana is that of law
enforcement They now see clearly that this is the rock upon
which rests the perpetuity of our liberties. I come to discuss
law enforcement with reference to three great questions the
Sabbath, the trust, the saloon. Before proceeding to the discussion of
these issues I desire to dispose of the argument for personal libcrtv
which is so bftenused. I am in favor of liberty ORDERLY LIB-
erty, not license. r a ; r.i " i- .
I believe I am the only candidate now running for governor who
isn't making the argument for personal liberty. By- personal liberty U
meanj, as now used, that bo long as an individual isn't harming liis
neighbor he can eat and drink and do what he pleases when and where
he-pleases. . s : . ,
THIS IS A WONDERFULLY DANGEROUS DOCTRINE. IT IS SUB
VERSIVE OF GOOD GOVERNMENT. IT FAILS TO RECOGNIZE THE
BIG FACT THAT THE MORAL WORLD IS THE CONTROLLING ONE
AND THE ONE IN WHICH THE GREATEST GOOD AND THE GREAT
E8T INJURY ARE DONE. THAT MAN WHO , LEAD3 AN IMMORAL
LIFE OR CONDUCT3 AN IMMORAL BUSINESS AND THEREBY DE
STROYS MY BOY DOES ME A TEN THOUSAND TIMES GREATER
INJURY THAN IP HE HAD STOLEN MY HORSE OR BURNED MY
Mammon wants the Sabbath day for the harvest. Venus watils
this as a day of lust, when she can entice young girls and boys into thet
dives of amusement and dance them to perdition. Bacchus wants tliW
day for drunkenness and hilarity. The war is on everywhere, and
THE AMERICAN SABBATH IS IN JEOPARDY.-' Unless our
laws are enforced this great bulwark of our liberty will be lost

The Corporation Here to Stay.
By Judge PETER S. GROS5CUP of the United Statai Court of Appeal.
HE corporation is here to stay. It already, embodies more
than one-third of the property of the entire country. One
half of the people of the country get their bread and butter
out of it. IT IS THE FORM IN WHICH THE
LARGEST PROPORTION OF THE PROPERTY OF THE
FUTURE WILL BE CARRIED.
My position is this that the corporations should be made so
secure as a form of holding property that the corporate domain of the
country will, invite investment by the people, just as the farms of the
country are distributed among the people, and this can be done if we
go about the work of corporate reconstruction SANELY AND CON
