The indebtedness of the cityXfcridw
taken care of for the next twentfrfive
toy the bonds recently sold. The new
charter forbids the incurring of any
other debt, bat this will not take care of
the city's finances unless the utmost of
economy is practiced and eyery unnec
essary expenditure shut off. The in
come of the city is from (10,000 to $12 ,
000 annually, and for several years its
expenses have exceeded $15,000 per
The greatest hindrance to the growth
and prosperity of this or any other city
is heavy taxation and debt. The surest
-way to avoid both is to place the city's
affairs in the bands of careful and eco
nomis basinets men, and keep it there.
"It is not too soon to give the matter
close attention. Let no taxpayer be in
different to the coming city election.
SESSION LAWS OF 1895.
The legislature of 1895 has received
blame without limit ; but few words of
praise. We confess we were unable to
appreciate the value of their services to
this great state until the concentrated
wisdom of the session, as contained in
what history and our children will call
the "Session Laws of 1895," came to our
table, and we'learned for the first time
that hereafter all lands covered by
county roads shall be exempt front tax
ation. Thus the great burden, which
has worn the poor county roads into
chuck holes and ruts and rendered them
unable to bear the ordinary palatial
-vehicles of wool and wheat haulers, is
removed, and, best of all the cure is im
mediate, for because of the urgency of
the case, the law went into effect upon
being signed by the governor. We have
heard much of road taxes; we suppose
now we will hear no more of them. If
' county roads are to be exempt from tax
ation what right will any one have to
collect road taxes. This great boon, an
appropriation of $40,000 to pay the mem
bers, a law protecting song birds aud a
few laws, of minor importance are all
contained in this one book.
THE WAY IT SEEMS TO VS.
We make no . pretension of under'
standing the silver question as well as
they who continually discuss it, but we
are of the opinion that if wheat will sell
in Oregon for sixty cents or more per
bushel next fall, populists, silver demo
crats and silver republicans will forget
that wheat and silver have any more
intimate relation than silver and sugar,
silver and wool, or silver and cotton,
If farming and stock raising are no more
profitable this year than they were last,
the political philosophers of the side'
walks and country stores will evolve a
remedy, and the voters of the Pacific
coast are likely to try it.
We would suggest that Commissioner
Lamoraux, of the general land office,
spend his summer in the Cascade range
shooing off sheep. He would learn that
the pasturing of these mountains for the
past fifteen years has not harmed the
herbage about which he is so solicitous
His knowledge of the Cascade mount
ains should be amended at once.

Reports from Sherman county are to
the effect that the recent copious show
ers have left the grain in a very promis
ing condition. The same is true as to
Tygh Ridge in this county. Reports
from the Big Bend of the Deschutes are
less encouraging, as less rain has fallen
there than farther south.

was one of the very best of the evening.
The young lady has good elocutionary
powers and recited in a perfect manner
the mishaps of a man who was "Too
Late for the Train." The members of
the Mandolin Club, Professor Stratton,
John Booth, F. W. Wilson, Miss Helm,
Etta Strong, Florence Lewis, Mabel
Stone and Lois Helm rendered a pretty
The title of Misb May Sechler's essay
was "Silent Forces of Nature." She
told of how the great deeds of nature
are done so silently and how quiet in
fluences at work have brought about
great results. Her essay was well re
ceived. Miss Bessie French recited in a charm
ing manner "Magdalena; or the Span
ish Duel.',' '. The poem was one of those
soft Spanish tales of love and combat,
and the fair reciter gave it with much
expression, indicative of natural ability
and careful elocutionary training.
The next piece was "To Thee, O Coun
try," sung by the Doable Quartette
with good effect, Following this came
the oration of Miss Pearle Butler. The
title was, "Monuments Imperishable."
The young lady, in fittingly-chosen
language and much dramatic effect,
spoke of those monumnnts whicn did
not perish and to which the world owed ;
much. She paid high tribute' to the
ruej who endowed our great universi
ties, which are "Monuments Imperish

AT THE ACADEMY FABK SCHOOLS. ' -
The Academy Park school is surely
unrivalled in its surroundings. Familiar
as it is to eyery visitor yesterday every
voice exclaimed in praise of the mag
nificent view, the beauty of the park
and the airy sweetness of the rooms.
This building is under the charge of the
Misses Rintoul, Miss Phirman and Miss
Flinn. These teachers have all proved
before their fitness fer their work and if
any recent comer .was among the audi
ence they, must have speedily been con
verted te this belief that the pupils are
fortunate in the intelligent, wise and
loving guidance under which they are
placed. The only thing to criticize was
in the small accomodation for visitors
and it was not only email but poor when
you had it'. It would be well if so
large a building be planned to afford one
good sized, well Arranged audience hall
In the program the violet drill perhaps
appealed most strongly to the sentiment
of beauty, but the patriotic drill was'
not only beautiful but touched a deeper
chord. It would be a srreat boon to onr
Tovely town if such delightful occasions
as this could be afforded semi-annually
We are sorry not to be able to give a
more extended mention of the different
exercises, but it was impossible to be

publish- the remaining programs Mon

were omitted today.
Let Be Thankful.
This is a glorious day for . Wasco
county. Early this morning a gentle
rain began to fall, and has continued all
day.Jwetting the ground and calling to
renewed life the crowing grain. It
means dollars and dollars to the resi
dents of this section, and the farmers
and merchants and everyone else can go
to church tomorrow bubbling over with
feelings of thankfulness in their hearts
that the harvest is now assured.
