ITS CLOSING DAYS.
Three-fourths of the
Presented Will Go
TO OUR RKADERS.
With this issue the Union reach
es its subscribers as the sole rep
resentative of republican principles
in Benton county. The proprietors
of The Corvallis Gazette, believing
that the party and the public could
be rendered better service by a
consolidation of the interests and
influence of the two papers, have
retired from the field, leaving the
younger and more vigorous Union
to carry on the contest, re-enforced
by the Gazette's support. The two
papers hereafter will appear under
the combined head Union-Gazette,
and both will be under the control
and management of the former
Oregon Union Publishing Company.
Though less than two years old,
the Union has cometo be con
sidered the best paper in Benton
county and its growth in influence
and strength has encouraged and
- surprised even its most ardent
supporters. Its staunch and un
swerving loyalty to republican
principles, and its fair and liberal
treatment of all matters discussed
in its columns, have won it a host
of friends both inside and outside
of the party, and the confidence
and respect of the entire public.
The Gazette was established
thirty-six years ago and was one of
the oldest papers in the state.
Many of its readers had been sub
scribers since its first issue, and
they had come to respect it for its
age and the memories which linger
ed round it. These will find in the
Union-Gazette a purveyor of news
equal to the Gazette in its palmiest
' days, and a republican iournal of
integrity and honest purpose.
JWith the consolidation of the lists
of the two papers the Union-Ga
zettE will cover the field in Benton
county more thoroughly than has
any other paper, lhis means a
great strengthening of the party.
To advertisers, too, this announce
ment will be important for they

As soon as the confusion inci

The closing days of the session
develope anxious faces ami very
busy men everywhere, on the floor
of both houses and in the lobby,
for it is foreordained that about
five hundred out of the six hundred
bills that- have been introduced

people, and those who do not under
stand, will of course attribute this
failure to some shortcoming of legis-
ators, but such is not the case.
Oregon has had practically no
egislation since 193, and it was
reasonably expected that a great
many bills would be introduced,
and it it had not been for the
partial relief afforded by the special
session, the condition here now
would be much worse.

presented for a third and y final
passage. And on the passage of
each, except local or corporation
bills, there is necessarily a good
deal of discussion. Sometimes the
discussion of a single bill will oc
cupy an entire sitting, and often
two sittings. So you see that it is

OREGON'S FORTIETH. BIRTHDAY.
Last Tuesday marked the fortieth
anniversary of Oregon's admission
into the sisterhood of states.- Al
though born in troublous times
when' the very foundation of the
nation was being shaken, and under
circumstances which placed a stig
ina on her name, she has since
been guilty of no act which would
. tarnish her record nor sully her
fame. Yesterday Oregon was an
unknown land in the western
wilderness in whom even the
mighty Webster could see no
virtue; today no state has a bright
er future nor gives greater promise;
tomorrow her position will be pre
eminent. Her vastteiritory, every
foot of which is capable of being
turned to account; her boundless
resources; her fortunate location;
her unsurpassed climate and her
promise of future greatness in civ
ilization, manufactures" and trade
argue her the crowning jewel in the
union of states, and shed unfading
luster upon that noble band of
pioneers who won her from the
that are introduced, tha less chance
there is that they willever reach
a final consideration.

senate is economy, and no bill has

of new bills comes from amend

, There is little to write now, but
in a day or two many changes will
take place, for the next three days
will be spent in the passage of bills,
as after tomorrow no bills can pass
between the houses. Next week
we will have positive news of what
the legislature has don.
The Farmers Short Course which
was recently completed at the col
lege was by far the most successful
of any ever given before, both in
the number of attendance and the
work accomplished. The whole
numbsr enrolled was 1C2. Of these
24 were women and 78 were men.
The occupations represented cover
ed nearly all in the catalogue, but
the . farmers were largely in the
majority, 54 of the class being of
that persuasion. Nineteen counties
were represented, and the states of
Washington and Minnesota each
furnished a student
The committee of the faculty
which had the matter in charge
has made the following report to
President Gatch: .
"We believe that the farmers'
short course will result ( I ) in a
greater dissemination of scientific
information touching industrial
life; (2( in giving the-farmer and
the fruit grower the, benefit of the
most' modern methods; (3) in in
spiring the spirit of reading and
investigation among the industrial
classes; and (4) in developing such
an appreciation of highly culttvattd
gardens orchards and fields, as
will stimulate improvement of the
home and surroundings, and make
rural life more elevating and enjoyable.?
"We believe, also, that the farm-!
ers' short course is the only means
of reaching certain industrial class
es; hence, we recommend its con
tinuance, and suggest that the next
session be of the same length as
this one; and that it close with the
fruit growers' convention, which
will probably meet some time in
the early part of next February.
"We recommend that opportu
nity be given to fruit growers and
others interested to display at their
expense and risk such fruits and
apparatus at the college as will
illustrate the instruction given in
the coming farmers' short course

The Daly text book bill passed

The bill of Senator Daly, of Ben
ton and Lincoln counties, which
makes a radical change in the laws
regulating the government of schools
and the selection of text books, has
pasted the senate. It is a body
blow to the American Book Com
pany, which will spare no efforts to
dtfeat the bill in the house. Jack
School Supt. Denman, ever alive
to all matters pertaining to the
improvement of affairs in his de
partment, has prepared a circular
which will be sent to school clerks
of the various districts asking them
to send a certified list of the names
of legal voters in their district
for the year . beginning March 6,
1899. This is a very necessary
and important proceeding. Peti
tions are constantly reaching the
superintendent asking him to alter
the boundaries of districts. The
law provides that where a majority
of the legal voters of a district sign
such a petition, it shall be the duty
of the superintendent to grant it.
By having a certified list of such
voters of each district on file in his
office, the superintendent will be in
a position to know whether thd
petitioners are entitled to consider

obligation to the government by
making an appropriation for build

an appropriation of $5,000 for the
