loath to give them their just desert, for these things must perish; if not by the aid of the

H. H. Riddell returned last night from
Salem, where he spent most of his time
at the capitol championing the bill to
regulate the tax law and watching the
proceedings of our legislators.. While
there are many bills being introduced
amounting to simply nothing, and which
will bo doubt die a bornin', Mr. Riddell
says there is a great deal of good hard
work being done, and many important
bills will be passed. He eays prospects
for the tax bill, which was introduced by
Koberts, look encouraging, and . at
present it looks as if it will be rushed.
Just at this time the streete of our city
are in a terrible condition, the soft,
Blushy snow making navigating a diffi
cult matter. The crosswalks, many of
them, are almost impassible, and when
one bravely steps on snow, which looks
substantial enough, he sinks deeper and
deeper, and finally wonders where, be is
"at." His case will be a hopeless one
unless work is soon begun on these
walks. They should be shoveled off so
that pedestrians could determine wheth
er they are stepping on . air, water or
boards. Now is also a splendid time for

Yesterday afternoon the members of
the Good Intent society met ay the home
of Mrs. Wm. Micbell, the principal busi-
ness of the meeting
lection of of-
fleers for the coming
year. Mrs. V. M.
French was chosen
ident ; Mrs. Par-
kins, vice president
Irs. W. A. JS-irby,
treasurer. The ladies have accomplished
in advancing the finuueial interests
of the church during the past year, and
deserve muchcredit. Last Sunday their
pastor complimented them very highly
from the pulpit. After the. business was
dispatched yesterday, the hostess served
refreshments, and a social hour was
greatly enjoyed. '
R. C. Judson, the industrial agent of
the O. R. & N., has returned from his
Eastern junket. Mr. Judson secured a
number of important industries that
will eventually make Oregon their home
and which will be located along the line
of the O. R. & N. Just what these are
Mr. Judson feels would be premature to
announce at this time. "There will be a
large wave of immigration, from the
EaBt this year for Oregon," said Mr.
Judson. "There cannot help being.
This is . the proper Mecca for all who
want to better themselves, and who can
bring some capital with them. How
could it help being Such? We have here
every condition that may be desired
climate, weather and soil."
Last night's Oregonian contains eome
clippings which were printed in that
paper thirty-seven years ago yesterday.
Among them was an article on the
Portland Academy. The reporter called
at that institution and found Professor
Hall at the head of the school, with Miss
Pentland (now Mrs. Brooks, of this city)
as assistant principal. Miss Pentland
had graduated the spring before and ac
cepted a position at once. Among the
pupils in one of the rooms was Master
Dufur, who was commended very high
ly for his proficiency in reciting. He is
still reciting, and his voice is now beard
in the balls of legislation.' The man is
but the boy of an older growth. It Is a
common occurrence for boys, especially,
to dodge the literary exercises of the
school room, but their influence and
profit is sure to tell in after years. No
doubt Enoch was often kept in, and per
chance chastised, for his reluctance to
speak bis little piece; whereas it is a
difficult matter to keep him from speak
ing it now.
