With mohair selling at 35 cents a
pound in Willamette valley, and but
ter fat worth 33 u cents on the Port
land markets and both commodities
scarce, it seems that there are some
splendid opportunities for men with
means and energy in Oregon .
The Ohio republicans have decided
that a new leader is needed in state
politics. The constant growth of Tom
Johnson's popularity and the utter
failure of Hanna methods, to cope
with the rising tide of democratic
power, are bringing the thinking men
of that state to their senses. It will
do no good to change leaders. Ohio
republicanism must change its policy
and its tactics, before it can hope to
hold the people in line.
Binger Hermann is not to have
smooth sailing in the first congres
sional district. The little factional
wasp which has fatally stung so many
aspirations in the state within the
past two years. Is buzzing noisily now.
The same reforming forces which
have declared war on machine noli
tics and have shown their power and
wisdom, in the past, are not satisfied
with results. There were young men
in the district, just as able as Mr.
Hermann, and more entitled to polit
leal honor, whose friends feel that it
would be good for the old machine to
give it a severe lesson. The demo
cratic candidate can scarcely hope to
win. yet greater miracles than this

at the suggestion to utilize the rab

standing this tendency to make light

been incorporated, paid its fee, aud is
now in position to prepare the "Amer

the best features of the incorporation
Is that one of Its objects is to pre
pare fruits, vegetables and other nro-
ducts for market, and operate a cold
storage plant. In March 75 carloads
of beef were shipped from Echo to
Portland and the Sound. One-half
the freight on this beef was paid on
hides, hoofs and offal. This freight
charge might have been saved to the
producers of this beef, by preparing

at .hand for a great enterprise. True,
it may be weak at present, but assis
