, Well, Van Duzer has been a very good member of the
commission ; has given generously of his time and his ability.
jBut we ask the Journal, is this to be a one-man commission?
; Is Van Duzer to have the full say about the highways of
'Oregon? 1 J -
The Journal insists that these "indefensible attacks by
jSpaulding on his unoffending colleagues be stopped, that he

I" j Well, now as we understood at the time Spaulding was
iput on. the commission by Gov. Meier not to be "an. orderly

; speak no evil, hear no evil"; Instead he was put on there to
probe into' the whole works, bring to light whatever of inef

thing up like the Journal is trying to doj Open the door and

One will find in the Salem Di

was lifted from the 1871 Direct
ory. reading: 1
The first agricultural society
on the Pacific coast was organ
ized at Salem AprU-ff, 1SS4, Got
em$r John W. Daris, president,
and Joseph G. Wilson, secretary.
The? first agricultural fair was
held, at. Salem October 11, 1854.
Hon? Li. F.i GroTer dellrered the
address. In this address th es
tablishment of woolen mills, the
Introduction of the Cashmere or
Angora goat and the steam plow

j .The deed from Marlon county
to the .Oregon State Agricultural
society . was-made July 7, 1861.
Fairs had been held each year, up
to that time, and ther have been
f held; avefy year since, including
the one ox 1884. The deed . to

1 The state fair became a true
state fair belonging to the com
monwealth, in 1891. The legisla
ture of that year passed an act
taking over the property. The
deed f Fom the. Oregon State Agri
cultural 'society to the State
Board of Agriculture- was' made
November 6, 1881-. Since then
the property has belonged to the
slate.1 apd the fair has been man-aged-iunder
acts of tha legisla
ture. : ; ' - - ' : '

Clearly, i the - first Oregon fair
was In 1854. That makes this the
77tS , Oregon - state fair. - By no
construction can it be said to be
only the 70 th stata fair. As Rev.
Judson wrote, the society that
originated : it was "the first agri
cultural society-on the Pacific
coast," and, by the same sign,
the fair of 1854; on the grounds
where-the present fair is being
held, was the first agricultural
fair on the Pacific-coast. It is the
daddy of them all. v

To the editor: Noting the hue I
ana cry anant tna conducting oz
tha state fair on Sunday. I am
moved to wonder it It would be
better to hare no fair. Since it is
a mooted question as to Just
which day Is the Lord's day, and
leaving nothing ! to chance at
least two days are eliminated. . j
- Rather than go to the fair onj
these days, we mignt . pnt on a
long face and talk about; the de- j
pmiium, or ur u ,uiu uuin
to . make our neighbor as miser
able and unhappy as ourselves.
It may be a blessing to hare
somebody to attend to our busi
ness for us. tali na what Jwe may
may or maj not do on ? certain
days. Where we may go and what
we shall spend our money; for but
it is not compatible- with human
nature. i K
We should probably invito the
morons who can't get along with
out such unholy entertainment, to
pack themselves off to some oth
er city, state or country, as they
have been doing for a number of
years, and spend!! their jj money
where it is appreciated, and let
the- old town sleep. ; ": T
However, owing: to the untiring
efforts of some of our public
spirited citizens, elaborate plans
hare been effected that we. may
refresh ourslves with some of the
beauties and wonders of - nature,
art and science. What . could be
more fitting, even on a "Lord's
day"? '!.' A .
The fair Is worthy. of dur-support
